    NEW YORK — The already collapsed Trump Tower collusion conspiracy continued to further implode during an exclusive interview with Rob Goldstone, the English publicist who sent Donald Trump Jr. the infamous email claiming Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton that led to the June 9, 2016 meeting. https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2018/10/15/exclusive-trump-tower-collusion-conspiracy-implodes-during-interview-with-key-witness/
  • Michael Cohen, once the ultimate Trump loyalist, now wants to campaign against him

    The Donald Trump loyalist who famously said he'd take a bullet for the President is now willing to publicly fight his former boss. Michael Cohen, the President's former lawyer, is prepared to campaign against Trump and Republicans in the midterm elections and the 2020 presidential race, a Democrat with knowledge told CNN. Marking the latest escalation in Cohen's growing animosity towards Trump, the source said he is open to doing a range of things to try to help the Democratic Party, including stumping for candidates, giving speeches and helping raise money.
  • Trump Actually Is Virtuous—Where it Counts

    American Greatness ^ | October 17, 2018 | Deion Kathawa
    It’s no secret that the American polity really doesn’t care about, nor does it fully understand, the role or demands of classical virtue—and that it hasn’t for a very long time. But many, especially (and hypocritically) those who derive an unhealthy thrill from scorning, mocking, and deriding any and all expressions of traditional virtue, are absolutely certain of one thing: President Trump emphatically is neither a virtuous man nor a virtuous president. I think they are right he is not a virtuous man. But I also think that’s not a terribly relevant observation. Why? Because the country (at their behest!)...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | October 17, 2018 | Gary Younge in Racine, Wisconsin
    Roughly 10 days before the 2016 presidential election one of America’s largest unions sent a bus of volunteers from Iowa, where Hillary Clinton looked sure to lose, to Michigan, where union leaders heard she was in trouble. They called Clinton’s team to tell them what they were doing only to receive a stern rebuke. Turn the bus around they were told. Michigan is safe. Trump won Michigan by 10,704 votes – or .23%. The 2016 presidential election shredded the old rule book on how American elections are fought and won. Now three weeks before the midterm elections, when all of...

    Sean Hannity ^ | October 16, 2018 - 1 hour ago | Hannity Staff
    nti-Trump crusader and Nebraska GOP Senator Ben Sasse set his sights on Sean Hannity this week; accusing him of “grotesque distortions” in his new book while failing to disclose countless interviews where the Republican widely-agreed with the Fox News host. According to recently released excerpts from Sasse’s latest cash-grab, the Senator lashes-out at Hannity for a full twenty pages; saying he doesn’t “promote a particular conservative agenda, or to encourage American patriotism, or even to offer coherent arguments against liberalism. His core cause is to rage.” “Liberals are evil, you’re a victim, and you should be furious,” he adds. Sasse...

    The U.S. is back on top as the most competitive country in the world, regaining the No. 1 spot for the first time since 2008 in an index produced by the World Economic Forum, which said the country could still do better on social issues. America climbed one place in the rankings of 140 countries, with the top five rounded out by Singapore, Germany, Switzerland and Japan. All five countries’ scores rose from 2017, with the U.S. notching the second-biggest gain after Japan’s. The top spot hasn’t gone to the U.S. since the financial crisis stalled output and triggered a...

    Late Show host Stephen Colbert described President Donald Trump’s jokes about Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a “racist tirade” amid the ongoing drama over her supposed American Indian ancestry. On Tuesday, Warren released test results indicating that she had a maximum of 1.6 percent “Mesoamerican” heritage, which is far below the minimum requirement to claim membership of most Native American tribes. “After years of mocking Elizabeth Warren, clearly the President must have had a lot to say about these test results,” Colbert said, before playing a clip of Trump saying he did not care about the test results. “You care!...

    Flopping Aces ^ | 10-16-18 | Daniel John Sobieski
    In what some have “Kanye Derangement Syndrome” we see the death throes of the divide and conquer identity politics that have long been the source of Democrat power and residual political success. Their mantra was that black conservatives could not possibly exist in the natural world. They had to be some kind of genetically modified organism to which, when someone wandered off the plantation, they would apply that scientific term, “Uncle Tom”. The problem for Democrats is that blacks are leaving their political plantation in increasing droves. In a bit of irony, they are pouring across ideologically open borders. Heeding...

    An American cannabis producer took out a full-page ad in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal warning that the United States is “rapidly losing” its competitive advantage in the industry to Canada, the first G7 member to greenlight legal recreational pot. An American cannabis producer is warning President Donald Trump that Canada is poised to dominate the North American marijuana industry unless the United States takes steps to eliminate barriers to financing and market capital south of the border. A full-page ad in Tuesday's Wall Street Journal, framed as a plea to the White House and its most prominent occupant, warns the...

    Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock responses we can often expect from certain figures to stories of sexual harassment and abuse. At a rally in Pennsylvania last week, for example, President Trump once again mocked the movement, claiming he "wasn't allowed" to use certain expressions anymore, and laughing when a member of the crowd urged him to "do it anyway." It is galling in another way, however, to hear #MeToo undermined from an unexpected quarter -- as it was a few days ago by Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton....

    Patrick Bumatay is the second openly gay person to be nominated by Trump to be a federal judge. President Donald Trump recently announced another wave of judicial nominees, and among them is an openly gay conservative, Patrick Bumatay. Trump nominated Bumatay to serve on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, based in San Francisco, the nation’s largest federal appeals court. It hears cases from nine Western states and has 29 judges; there are currently six vacancies. Bumatay is an assistant U.S. attorney in California handling various criminal issues, including opioid abuse and transnational organized crime, according to...

    Axios ^ | October 16, 2018 | Jonathan Swan
    President Trump loves nothing more than when his opponents try to litigate his insults, as Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is trying to do with "Pocahontas," a staple riff at his rallies. The big picture: Trump's never more comfortable than on this terrain, and "Pocahontas" is one of his all-time favorites, according to aides. • But he also is especially proud of "Da Nang Dick" Blumenthal, for the exaggerated military record of the Democratic senator from Connecticut. • Trump also regularly hits "Sleepy Joe" Biden these days. • In Trump’s mind, his 2016 nicknames weren’t a sideshow, but were one of...

    President Donald Trump has raised more than $100 million toward his re-election bid, a staggering sum more than two years before the 2020 presidential election. The president's fundraising total, which includes his official campaign and two other joint accounts, raised about $18 million between July and September. That brings his fundraising total since January 2017 above the $100 million mark. And he closed September with almost $47 million in the bank. The latest numbers, filed with the Federal Election Commission on Monday's quarterly fundraising deadline, provide a glimpse into how Trump is stockpiling money for his re-election bid at a...

    "Seventy years of post-war diplomacy ruined" is the consensus establishment view of Donald Trump's America First foreign policy. And it is true. But Donald Trump is not the first president in postwar America to rattle the iron cage of establishment diplomacy. That honor goes to Harry Truman, who ruined Franklin Delano Roosevelt's vision of the postwar world when he did what Roosevelt would have never done – drop two nuclear bombs on Japan. Nor is President Trump the first postwar president to tread in Truman's footsteps. Both Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan did that before him. And yet, there is...
