  • As “America The Great” Fights; Trump-Hatred Soars

    11/11/2019 12:05:05 PM PST · by Liberty7732 · 20 replies
    It’s often said by conservative voices that Trump hatred is not about Trump, it’s about you! (Meaning Trump supporters.) That’s partially true. Trump haters certainly do hate his supporters, too. But it goes much deeper than that. Trump haters despise an America that sits atop the world economically, militarily and morally — particularly morally. They scoff at the idea of a bright shining city on a hill. And that means that this battle right now, today, is far bigger than Donald Trump, although he is an avatar for it. This battle is about whether America remains America — or the...

    CNN political analyst David Gergen said Wednesday that action to counter climate change has become a "moral imperative" as Hurricane Dorian inched its way up the East Coast. During a discussion of a recent trip to Greenland on "CNN Newsroom," Gergen claimed U.S. cities should prepare for massive flooding if polar ice caps continue to melt. “I went [to Greenland] thinking it was a practical imperative to deal with climate change. I came away feeling it’s a moral imperative," he said. "When you see what’s happening in Greenland, it is an early -- it's an early set of signals about...

    Um...Who are you calling odd, David? CNN senior political analyst David Gergen came up with a rather odd observation on Monday's Erin Burnett OutFront. Fortunately for Erin Burnett, she was not present when Gergen blurted out the example of his uncomfortable oddity. That "pleasure" was left to At This Hour host Kate Bolduan, who seemed to have an oddly uncomfortable moment as we shall see:

    RUSH: Audio sound bite No. 4. David “Rodham” Gergen last night on CNN. Anderson Cooper 360 is the program. Question: “The synagogue killer was motivated by anti-Semitism, but also this obsession on the caravan and ‘invaders’ echoing language the president himself used. It doesn’t seem like the president stepped back from that. If anything, the president’s pushing the gas pedal down further.” What is not mentioned here? That the synagogue shooter hated Trump, considered Trump a sellout, precisely because he has a daughter that converted to Judaism. That’s not mentioned. Nope! Trump is ratcheting down. He’s pedal-to-the-metal. And here’s the...

    RUSH: So last night, Anderson Cooper 360 spoke with David Rodham Gergen about the New York Times report that federal agents wiretapped Manafort. And during the discussion, Cooper and Gergen have this little exchange. COOPER: I assume he could now say, “Well, look, you know, there was some wiretapping going on.” GERGEN: There… (laughing). Well, there was wiretapping under a federal court order, I mean, federal court of approval. And with top Justice Department officials and his own Justice Department it appears may be since the Obama team, that — that okay, we’ll have to — to wait and see....

    Amid a chorus of GOP criticism for the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton, one Republican political analyst is standing behind the agency’s verdict, calling it “the FBI’s finest hour” on "CNN Newsroom" Wednesday morning. David Gergen, a former adviser to four U.S. presidents and a senior political analyst for CNN, bucked party lines in an opinion piece as well, calling those who disagree with FBI Director James Comey's decision "embittered partisans.”

    WASHINGTON -- I see that CNN is calling upon the good offices of Mr. Potato Head to refute Donald Trump's evisceration of Hillary Clinton in his speech last Wednesday. Mr. Potato Head is very indignant that Peter Schweizer has written a book, "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich," demonstrating that a pattern of corruption exists in the relationship between The Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department. He says that pattern of corruption does not establish the Clintons' guilt. Well, an author can only do so much....

    Wednesday on his radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh questioned CNN’s David Gergen for his assertion that Breitbart editor at large Peter Schweizer’s book “Clinton Cash” had been discredited following a speech in which presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump had widely cited the book. Limbaugh pointed out that other major media outlets had used it in their reporting and that it was possible Gergen was making the assumption that it had been discredited without actually having any evidence to back it up.

    The old media won't tell you so, but President Obama is facing a revolt from within his own political party. It was bound to happen once the dimensions of the ObamaCare disaster started to become obvious. Yesterday,I pointed out that Charles Rangel is an early indicator of the discontent bubbling beneath the surface, and that he is freer to speak than non-black Democrats. But today we have another leading indicator.

    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    If only this were a coalition of the left and the right working out differences. But alas, it’s just a coalition of mostly liberal politicians who used to label themselves by a political party and now would rather fly stealth. Sigh. If you are not familiar with “No Lables”, no worries, it’s brand new and they certainly deserve a Hat Tip for brevity. Here’s their declaration: We are not labels – we are people. We care deeply about our country. We are frustrated and concerned about the tone of politics. We are passionate about addressing America’s challenges. We are Democrats,...

    Moderated by the hyper partisan David Gergen, the inspiring Scott Brown mopped the floor with repugnant democrat hack, Martha Coakley, his opponent for the Massachusetts senate seat once owned by Ted Kennedy Kopechne. Exposing the astounding arrogance of the democrats, Gergen asked Brown and Coakley if they would stop the health care bill so beloved by Kennedy. Brown delivered a response that inflicted incalcuable damage to the democrat party in its current constitution: “With all due respect,’ said Brown, ‘it’s not the Kennedy’s seat, and it’s not the Democrats’ seat, it is the people’s seat.’ You could hear the roars...

    The year 2005 is ending as it began, with another successful election in Iraq and a liberal media still flapping around trying to find other controversies to submerge it. It does not matter to them that a Gallup poll found that 74 percent of Americans express confidence in their military, but only 28 percent express confidence in their newspapers or TV news outlets. The "mainstream" media excels in excoriating the performance of nearly everyone else, but acts as if nothing they do should be held up as ineffective, inaccurate or just plain absurd. That's why the Media Research Center and...

Gergen thinks McCain The Crusty destroyed Cool-Cat Obama at the Saddleback Forum. Heading into the candidates’ appearances on Saturday night at Saddleback Church, the conventional wisdom in politics was Barack Obama should have a clear upper hand in any joint appearance with John McCain — one the young, eloquent, cool, charismatic dude who can charm birds from the trees, the other the meandering, sometimes bumbling, old fellow who...

"I can arrange some things for you,” the devil said. " I’ll get you a top level security clearance; I’ll give you your 15 minutes of pathetic fame; I’ll make you the best liar in the world and I’ll let you get away with being a despicable scumbag. All I require in return is that your wife's soul, your children's souls, their children's souls and your country’s soul rot in hell for eternity." Berger...

    It brings no joy to issue a public rebuttal against a valued colleague, but there are moments that demand no less. The occasion is the publication of an essay titled "The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy," written by two professors, John Mearsheimer of the University of Chicago and Stephen Walt, the academic dean and my colleague at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government. In essence, their 82-page piece argues that U.S. policy in the Middle East has been hijacked by a pro-Israel "Lobby." "The core of the Lobby," they say, "is comprised of American Jews who make a significant effort...

    Michael Kelly was one of the best writers of his generation and an extraordinarily gifted observer of politics and culture. Despite having grown up in Washington to become a member of the media elite, Kelly was also one of the few writers willing to turn a scathingly critical eye at the press itself. I've often wondered what Kelly's reaction would be to the atmosphere in Washington these days; what he might have written about the coverage of the war and, more recently, how he would have viewed the flap over Karl Rove and the CIA leak investigation. As it turns...
