    Some of my reports from Washington might be different from what you generally hear in the national media, so here it goes! President Donald Trump has been doing very well. I didn’t vote for him, but I have to give him a lot of credit for his accomplishments over the last few weeks. Here are just a few: 1. Public administration experts are acknowledging that Trump has done a superb job of managing the hurricanes and other natural disasters we are experiencing. He sent his entire Cabinet out into the field. The president himself visited flood areas but kept out...

    Non-farm payrolls were expected to have increased by 183,000 last month after surging by an initially reported 222,000 in June, according to a Reuters survey of economists. The unemployment rate was expected to fall one-tenth to 4.3 percent.

    Whether you voted red or blue, clearly you can see that Team Trump had a rough launch. Failure (so far) to replace Obamacare, daily Russian probe distractions and West Wing infighting are three most notable examples. But, I believe all three are rooted in one simple and temporary cause: Donald Trump didn't expect to be elected President. Please know my source here is not some anonymous bureaucrat or wishful-thinking Liberal pundit. Mr. Trump said that. Those who attended his final victory rally in December at Ladd Stadium might remember he told us that he rented a relatively small Manhattan ballroom...

    We are just inches away from the outbreak of World War III, and yet most Americans seem completely oblivious to what is happening. On Friday, North Korea conducted a missile test which proved that it now has the capability of hitting major U.S. cities in the western half of the country.Every diplomatic effort to end North KoreaÂ’s nuclear program has completely failed, the Chinese have shown that they do not intend to do much of anything to intervene in this crisis, and the United Nations is a dead end. Given enough time, the North Koreans will build hundreds of ICBMs...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | July 30, 2017 | Lois Beckett in Washington
    Fox News has such an influence on Donald Trump that US journalists now react to the president’s proclamations on Twitter by searching for the Fox and Friends segment that inspired them. This intimate feedback loop between the Fox morning show and the president has made it “the most powerful TV show in America”, in the words of a New York Times critic. For Rupert Murdoch, a ruthless player in conservative politics across continents, such influence is striking. But it’s not new. Liberal critics of the administration, however, are now turning the spotlight on what they see as a troubling new...

    The health care push collapsed. The White House is the scene of a frantic game of musical chairs. And the looming specter of the Russia investigation has plagued President Trump since he took office. But amid the chaos, the Trump administration is steadily making progress on a campaign promise that will outlast this administration for decades: the confirmation of federal judges to lifetime positions on the bench. Trump wooed wary Republicans last year with pledges to appoint conservative judges. His administration so far has delivered. The White House has announced more than two dozen lower court nominees to date, and...

    Having just watched the WH presser led by Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who is doing an outstanding job BTW) and having watched John Roberts report to Neil Cavuto on Fox about said presser, it appears that ALL White House personnel report to General Kelly.I think this is a wonderful development.

    Melania Trump is approaching her 200th day as First Lady (it’s on Monday, August 7 to be precise), and in her short time at the White House, one that has been plagued by turmoil and scandal, she has redefined the politics of fashion. She laid the foundation with a classic, Camelot-inspired aesthetic on Inauguration Day, working with Ralph Lauren to create a powder blue jacket and coordinating dress that garnered comparisons to Jackie Kennedy’s Inauguration outfit by Oleg Cassini. In codesigning her Inaugural Ball gown with dresser-in-chief Hervé Pierre, Trump seemed to be following Kennedy’s lead again—she often worked with...

    WASHINGTON — President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff. The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said. Mr. Kelly made clear to members of the White House staff at a meeting Monday morning that he is in charge.

    07.31.17 Anthony Scaramucci RESIGNS as White House Communications Director Comes less than a week after hiring JULY 31, 2017 Washington, DC (ABC/WBEN) Anthony Scaramucci resigns as White House Communications Director. This comes the same day John Kelly was sworn in as Chief of Staff. Sources tell ABC Scaramucci resigned, asking to be redeployed at the Export Import Bank as chief strategy officer. Scaramucci had not been on the job less than a week. It may be most memorable for an expletive-laden conversation with a New Yorker reporter that disparaged other members of the Trump team.

    Free Beacon ^ | 07/27/2017 | Charles Fain Lehman
    Derek Harvey, a top adviser on the Middle East to President Donald Trump, was fired from the National Security Council on Thursday. Harvey's departure comes amid speculation about major shake-ups at the White House, the Weekly Standard reports. These shake-ups include possible conflicts between Trump and both Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Two sources told the Standard that Harvey's departure was not a direct product of staff fighting, but that several top administration members saw Harvey as too close to White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon. Harvey was apparently a strong advocate of Trump's decision...

    National security adviser H.R. McMaster continues to purge conservatives from the ranks of the National Security Council.On Thursday, McMaster fired Col. Derek Harvey, a renowned Middle East expert who served under Gen. David Petraeus. Neither the White House nor the National Security Council gave a reason for Harvey’s firing.Harvey is recognized in national security circles as a brilliant Middle East strategist. The Weekly Standard (which first reported Harvey’s firing) describes him as an “out-of-the-box thinker who has shown a keen knack for identifying threats before they’ve matured.” The report then cites a passage from Bob Woodward’s 2008 book “The War...

    RUSH: I want to start with a couple of stories that may not move mountains in the daily perusal of the news. The first one here in the Wall Street Journal: “U.S. Companies Post Profit Growth Not Seen in Six Years.” Now, the reason I want to focus on this, folks, is because if you pay attention to the news, which I have often advised and suggested you not, then you would be forgiven for concluding the country is falling apart. You would seem to be perfectly logical if, after a daily diet of news, you think everything is coming...

    Gen. John Kelly was sworn into office at the White House Monday morning, taking the position of White House chief of staff. The ceremony was closed to the press, but photographers were called in afterward to mark the occasion. When asked for comment, President Trump said Kelly was “fantastic” and would do a “spectacular job” in his new position. Later in the morning, Kelly and Trump met with the president’s entire cabinet. Trump praised Kelly’s six month leadership of the Department of Homeland Security, calling the results “nothing short of miraculous.” He also predicted that Kelly would be “one of...

Pyongyang is advancing far more quickly with its nuclear and ballistic missile programs than was expected by the United States.

    “We cannot tolerate this any longer,” said the former CIA Director at the head of the table. “We have to forcibly retake the government from Donald Trump. It is the only way save our democracy.”His audience nodded solemnly. The men and women gathered at that secret February meeting on the top floor of 241 West 41st Street, the New York Times building, were Democrat politicians, media figures, retired and active members of the federal security bureaucracy, and several Establishment Republicans, and they were at wit’s end. There simply was no other choice. Donald Trump must be replaced, and it no...

    The shakeup in the White House now allows Trump to pursue his version of swamp clean-up. He is creative and does not like to lose. He wants people who get things done. General Kelly will likely reorient the effort; with a unified message under Scaramucci perhaps the Trump tweets will reinforce the White House policies. After six months of an establishment approach to the swamp under Reince Priebus, a frustrated Trump has decided to put on the heavy breathing gear, go into the swamp and pull down “resistance” swimmers. Trump supporters will see his effort favorably, but the establishment will...
