    Republican strategist Steve Schmidt tore into Donald Trump while appearing on MSNBC today — calling the president an “imbecile” for his trade wars and adding that he has “no idea what he’s talking about.” As news circulated this morning that the stock market dropped dramatically after China responded to Trump’s tariffs with trade restrictions of their own, the president denied that there is a “trade war” happening, despite all evidence pointing to the opposite being true. Schmidt noted this while discussing the issue with a fired-up Stephanie Ruhle this morning:

    Eric Schmidt has a desire to control humanity.  What better way to do so than to help create a Net to connect all people with one another, enabling conversation, the exchange of ideas, and all the while playing God in the catch and release of their communications and private business.  He is a fisherman of all men. We enjoyed the beginning of our walk down Google’s yellow brick road, but now we have met the big bad witch. But, alas, it is not a she but a he! Here is a little background on Schmidt from Role in illegal...

    Some of the top CEO’s of technology companies in America met with Donald Trump at the White House on Monday, praising him for hosting an afternoon summit on important tech issues. “I’m absolutely convinced that during your administration there is going to be a huge explosion of new opportunities because of the platforms that are getting built in our industry,” Schmidt said to Trump after the meeting, as over a dozen CEOs went around the table to make comments after the meeting. Schmidt said that the combination of entrepreneurs, skilled workers, and immigration would provide “huge” growth in the American...

    Eric Schmidt, billionaire chair of Alphabet, Inc. the parent company of Google, led a massive fundraising drive in December for leftist analytics firm Civis Analytics, represented by a law firm that partnered with Justice Department special prosecutor Robert Mueller—raising questions about Mueller’s impartiality in his so-called “Russia probe” into President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. In March 2014, WilmerHale announced Mueller would join its firm as a partner. Mueller left his position in May after the DOJ appointed him as a special prosecutor to look into alleged “ties” between President Trump’s campaign and Russia. WilmerHale represented Civis Analytics during a $22...

    As we reported earlier, thousands of Google employees staged protests on Monday over Trump's executive order on immigration with Bloomberg noting that more than two thousand Google employees participated across several offices. What we did not report, however, is what Google executive chairman and staunch Hillary supporter - recall the leaked Podesta email which revealed Google's strategic plan to help Democrats win the election - Eric Schmidt told an earlier audience of Google employees. Quoting BuzzFeed, the CEO of one of the world's biggest and most influential companies said that the "Trump administration is “going to do these evil things...

    The top strategist to Senator John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign is calling out the Republican Party for not standing up to Donald Trump when it had the chance. Steve Schmidt, who ran the day to day operations on McCain’s losing bid to Barack Obama, told “Hardball’s” Chris Matthews that Trump was given a free pass in his consistent questioning of President Obama’s birthplace. “I said it was despicable then, it was wrong then, it undermined the legitimacy of the duly elected commander-in-chief. It was wrong and Republicans should have repudiated it,” Schmidt said. “We paid a price for it, and...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Republican strategist and MSNBC political analyst Steve Schmidt gave Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul’s presidential run announcement speech a rave review, calling it “nearly flawless” and “incredibly sophisticated.” SCHMIDT: Look, I think this speech was very nearly flawless. It was a superb announcement speech for a president. You saw somebody who attached optimism to conservatism and saw someone articulate a big tent Republican message. When you look at these fiscal issues, including symbolically the foreign aid issues to countries like Pakistan… I think all of the issues he talked about have tremendous resonance in these early states. And let’s not...

    So Liz Mair is gone. The GOP consultant thrown under the bus that is the Scott Walker campaign. But before we get to the Mair story? Once upon a time the people who worked for a presidential candidate were, believe it or not, longtime loyalists. Think JFK’s brother and campaign manager Bobby Kennedy. Ronald Reagan’s Ed Meese or Lyn Nofziger, Jimmy Carter’s Hamilton Jordan and Jody Powell, George W. Bush’s Karl Rove or, to go back even further in time, FDR’s Louie Howe. The world changed. Long ago. Somewhere along the line the people working to elect candidates became “operatives.”...

    Moscow’s actions in the Crimea are comprehensible, former German chancellor, Helmut Schmidt said, criticizing the Western reaction to the peninsula’s reunification with Russia. President Vladimir Putin’s approach to the Crimean issue is “completely understandable,” Schmidt wrote in Die Zeit newspaper where he’s employed as an editor. While the sanctions, which target individual Russian politicians and businessmen, employed by the EU and the US against Russia are “a stupid idea,” he added. The current restrictive measures are of symbolic nature, but if more serious economic sanctions are introduced “they’ll hit the West as hard as Russia,” Schmidt warned. He also believes...

    Out of office for more than three decades, Helmut Schmidt has strong views about the state of the European Union that he helped to forge out of the tough economic conditions of the late 1970s and early 1980s. "The state of Europe is problematic. European institutions are not really functioning any more. Why? Because of a lack of leadership." Schmidt says he is concerned about the "enormous, outlandish" debts of Greece, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus and Ireland and about the lack of jobs for the young. "We need a better coordination of fiscal policies. We need more solidarity in order to...

    Sarah Palin jumped into the “defund Obamacare” fray this week with a full defense of Ted Cruz‘s efforts to defund the health care law by any means necessary. On Hardball Monday, former McCain 2008 campaign strategist Steve Schmidt said that Republicans need to wash themselves of this “asininity.” “We need Republicans, whether they’re running for president, whether they’re the leadership of the Congress, to stand up against a lot of this asininity.” He declared that moderates need to take “conservatism’s good name back from the freakshow that’s been running wild for four years,”

Number one on the list of heretofore unmentioned blessings is Rush Limbaugh. Apparently without him Big Guy never would have WON! Let’s start with the charge made by Steve-Sarah-Palin-made-McCain-lose-not-our-crappy-campaign-Schmidt: on Meet the Press two weeks ago he named Rush as this year’s scapegoat. He explained how the lovable little fluff ball was responsible for undermining the Romney campaign strategy developed by himself and fellow Big Brained consultant Mike Murphy....

    In a recent article at the National Review, John McCain’s failed 2008 campaign manager Steve Schmidt is quoted as saying “it will be a very long time before questions about capability and preparedness are not a part of the process.” The implication is that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was neither “prepared” nor “capable” to be vice president in the 2008 cycle, and that now hangs over the current vice presidential selection process.

    Philadelphia City Commissioner Al Schmidt At a time when voter ID laws in 30 states are coming under intense fire from the liberal media, the Obama administration and civil rights leaders, one of the strongest cases anywhere was offered for voter identification by the lone Republican on the three-member panel overseeing elections in Philadelphia. Wednesday, City Commissioner Al Schmidt unveiled a 27 page report that his office had commissioned entitled “Voting Irregularities in Philadelphia County, 2012 Primary Election.” The report, which focused on cases in 15 of the city’s 1,687 election districts, found cases of double voting, voter impersonation,...
