    Shortly before the presidential election, GOP public relations worker Steve Schmidt saw Hillary Clinton “trending over 400” electoral college votes. He also predicted that Dems would retake the Senate and were “close” to retaking the House. We know how all that played out. So you probably want to take this morning’s comments from the man who brought you John McCain’s 2008 campaign with a gargantuan grain of salt. Asked on Morning Joe what he would tell President Trump regarding his assertion that President Obama tapped his phones, Schmidt went on a rant. Lowlights: “This makes you look unhinged . ....

    Mike Barnicle might not bring much to the table, but he is still capable of passing along nasty remarks from unnamed sources. On today's Morning Joe, discussing Nikki Haley's preparations for her confirmation hearing as UN Ambassador, Barnicle said, "I was told by somebody within the world of diplomacy and international relations that Nikki Haley makes Sarah Palin sound like Henry Kissinger." Joe Scarborough seemed to have intentionally teed Barnicle up to take his anonymous shot at Haley, asking him "what are you hearing about her?" After Barnicle's gossip, Scarborough weighed in, saying that he'd been hearing for weeks "real...

    During an interview aired on Tuesday’s edition of CNN’s “The Lead,” Senate Minority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated of President-Elect Donald Trump, “The only way we’re going to work with him is if he moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues.” Schumer said, “The only way we’re going to work with him is if he moves completely in our direction and abandons his Republican colleagues...."

    Well, this is what one would call bad political optics. With the dual breaking news events surrounding potential terrorism and a foreign diplomat being shot to death, White House pool reports showed that President Barack Obama headed to a country club in Hawaii near his rental house, where he is vacationing. The first email shows that Obama has directed his staff to keep him updated on the situation in Turkey regarding the assassination of the Russian Ambassador. From the White House, per Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz: “This morning the President was briefed by his National Security Team on...

    When millionaires and billionaires give you loads of money to make you a president, and then you fail, there comes a time for comeuppance. For Hillary Clinton and her team that time was Thursday night. A dejected, defeated and glum looking former Democrat presidential candidate strolled into the famous Plaza Hotel in New York City, with her husband former President Bill Clinton, running mate Tim Kaine, daughter Chelsea Clinton, son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky and campaign manager John Podesta, to explain to elite donors why their cash was not enough to defeat the will of the American people. Somehow, Hillary made it...
  • Schumer: Trump should pick 'mainstream' candidate to fill Supreme Court vacancy

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 20, 2016 | Ryan Lovelace
    Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said he wants President-elect Trump to select a "mainstream" candidate to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by the death of Justice Antonin Scalia. Asked by NBC on Sunday whether he was comfortable filibustering any Trump nominee for the court, Schumer dodged answering the question directly. "I hope that President Trump picks a mainstream candidate," Schumer said. "A mainstream candidate is somebody you may not agree with on every issue, but basically believes in precedent." NBC's Chuck Todd interrupted Schumer and asked, "What does that mean? Can he nominate somebody in your mind...

    Wash COMPOST ^ | Oct 20, 2016 | Philip Rucker and Robert Costa
    A wave of apprehension and anguish swept the Republican Party on Thursday, with many GOP leaders alarmed by Donald Trump’s refusal to accept the outcome of the election and concluding that it is probably too late to salvage his flailing presidential campaign. As the Republican nominee reeled from a turbulent performance in the final debate here in Las Vegas, his party’s embattled senators and House members scrambled to protect their seats and preserve the GOP’s congressional majorities against what Republicans privately acknowledge could be a landslide victory for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. With 19 days until the election, the Republican...

    On today’s Morning Joe, Mika Brzezinski teased an upcoming segment with James Carville and Steve Schmidt by saying it would be a “debate.” But the only contest between the two was to see who could be more critical of Donald Trump. And Schmidt, senior adviser to John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, won that contest hands down. Schmidt actually said that the “peaceful transition of power” would be “in doubt” if Donald Trump loses, suggesting he might refuse to concede and rouse his supporters by claiming the election was rigged.

  • Israel wants someone to build a $5 billion island off Gaza — for a seaport, hotels, airport

    06/20/2016 11:52:21 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 24 replies
    The Israeli government is considering a proposal to build an artificial island off the Gaza Strip that a top official says would give Palestinians living in the besieged enclave their one and only seaport — and maybe a hotel and an international airport, too. The Israeli minister of intelligence who is promoting the plan, Israel Katz, said the Jewish state is actively seeking financial partners for the $5 billion project. Katz mentioned the Saudis and Chinese as possible builders of the port — or maybe a mysterious Israeli entrepreneur. He declined to name names. ... He said the plan is...

    "It feels like a bazooka - and sounds like a cannon." How do we know AR-15s are the single most lethal weapon on the planet? Because they're SO LOUD. LOUD, YOU HEAR ME?! LOUD!!!! This is one of those things that must be read to be believed, and no, this was not found in The Onion, amazingly. New York Daily News reporter Gersh Kuntzman set out to test shoot an AR-15. “It feels like a bazooka — and sounds like a cannon,” he writes. A cannon. And Bazooka? The same bazooka also known as a "recoilless rifle"? I would like...
  • Facebook’s Zuckerberg Denies Bias, Wants to Meet ‘Leading Conservatives’

    Breitbart.com ^ | 13 May 2016 | Joel B. Pollak
    Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has denied that the social media giant censors news from conservative outlets — and says he wants to meet with “leading conservatives” to discuss the issue. A report earlier this month by Gizmodo alleged that Facebook “routinely” suppressed conservative news in its “trending news” feature, even when stories from conservative sites were being circulated widely by Facebook users. The report also alleged that Facebook “injected” more acceptable stories, such as coverage of the left-wing Black Lives Matter movement. Facebook denied the allegations. In a Facebook post Thursday evening, Zuckerberg reiterated that denial, and said he plans...

  • Ed Rollins Remerges as Trump Backer, Strategist

    05/04/2016 10:24:37 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 47 replies
    Seasoned Republican operative Ed Rollins is making his debut in Donald Trump's presidential bid. Rollins, who was Ronald Reagan's 1984 campaign manager, spoke on a conference call Wednesday with supporters of Great America, a super PAC that backs Trump. Rollins has signed on as a strategist for the group. Rollins says the super PAC aims to help offset what he sees as a huge financial advantage for likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. "They're licking their chops," Rollins says of Clinton's team. "They think they're going to win this thing." Great America will likely conduct polls, collect opposition research and run...

    I remember grassroots conservatives celebrating when he was elected two years ago because it meant adding another Republican to the Senate who takes his principles seriously. Now here’s Sasse last night reiterating that he takes his principles seriously enough not to vote for a big-government liberal just because he’s the party’s nominee and he’ll be excoriated for it. Oh well. The principled choice is rarely the popular one.

Sadly, it’s not a joke. It does have a punchline – of sorts. Whether it’s funny or not depends on your point of view. While campaigning in New York Tuesday, in what Jewish Insider‘s Jacob Kornblush calls “a pre-Passover learning tour in the Borough Park neighborhood...

    John Kasich bantered with Haredi Orthodox Jews about which biblical figure was most significant and other lessons from the Jewish Bible. […] “The story of the people are Abraham and God made a covenant with Abraham — not Moses!” Kasich told Ezra Friedlander, a Haredi lobbyist who was escorting Kasich through the heavily Haredi neighborhood. Friedlander had tried to explain that for Jews, Moses is considered the most important biblical figure, and more important than the patriarchs, because he brought the law to the Jews. “Moses is up there,” Friedlander said, as Kasich, an Anglican who was born Roman Catholic,...
