  • Politico Reporter Glorifies 'One Finger Salute' for Trump Administration

    Newsbusters ^ | October 10, 2018 | P.J. Gladnick
    It is no surprise that unhinged liberals who have formed screaming mobs targeting Trump administration officials or tackling Republican senators peacefully mowing their own lawns would also give the "finger" directed at the same people or President Donald Trump himself. However what is unusual is that a supposely professional reporter for Politico would be equally as unhinged and full of TDS hatred as to not only glorify such activity but to even angrily justify it.  Such a reporter would be Ben Schreckinger who invokes the "finger" over and over so many times that a reader could be excused for misreading...
  • Politico: ‘After Failing to Stop Kavanaugh, Dems Wonder If It’s Time to Be More Ruthless’

    10/08/2018 5:25:09 AM PDT · by PFW · 122 replies
    Hot on the heels of attacking Judge Brett Kavanaugh as a serial gang-rapist who should not be allowed around children, Democrats are wondering if it’s “time to be more ruthless,” Politico reports. John F. Harris writes in Politico that many “top Democratic operatives” have “the fear that their party loses big power struggles because Republicans are simply tougher, meaner, more cynical and more ruthless than they are.” "A belief in one’s own virtue feels good. Losing a battle that could shape the American political landscape for decades feels bad. The tension between the two left some Democrats grappling anew this...

    Brett Kavanaugh and I differ on most fundamental questions of constitutional law. Nevertheless, as a former dean of the institution where he received his law degree, I have withheld comment on the merits of his appointment. I am proud of the rich diversity of views that Yale Law School has produced. Over the past decade, Kavanaugh has been a casual acquaintance. He seemed a gentle, quiet, reserved man, always solicitous of the dignity of his position as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. It was therefore with something approaching unbelief that...
  • Beto O'Rourke apologizes for 1991 college review discussing actresses' breasts and buttocks

    Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke (D) on Monday apologized for writing a review of a Broadway musical in 1991 that detailed the actresses’ “phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.” Politico on Monday resurfaced the review O’Rourke wrote when he was 19 years old for the Columbia Daily Spectator, the university’s student newspaper. The review from the Oct. 10, 1991 edition of the paper was written under the byline Robert O’Rourke and offers a sharp critique of the musical “The Will Rogers Follies.” O’Rourke criticized the “perma-smile actresses whose only qualifications seem to be their phenomenally large breasts and tight buttocks.”...

    FENTON, Mo. — As GOP Rep. Ann Wagner prepared to introduce candidates in a Republican Senate debate here Friday, she took a pointed jab at one contender who didn’t make it — front-runner Josh Hawley. “I try not to tell candidates how to run their races. I don’t know where some of the other candidates are,” she told POLITICO before taking the stage in a high school auditorium, referring specifically to Hawley. “Perhaps they have conflicts. But you gotta show up to win. And I’m going to tell that to the crowd tonight.” Moments later, Wagner followed through, declaring to...
  • Politico Outsources Fairness on Trump and NAFTA to Canadian Version

    This is a tale of two Politicos... In the October 1 USA edition of Politico, the new NAFTA agreement was viewed through the lens of President Donald Trump's supposed braggadocio starting with the very title, "Trump hails 'historic' trade deal with Canada, Mexico" while being rather light on the details, making it seem that it was mainly Trump's opinion that the trade deal was  "historic." In contrast the Politico Pro Canada edition of the same day went much heavier into the details which revealed just how successful Trump was in getting a better deal for the United States.
  • Are Republicans Releasing Anonymous Kavanaugh Claims to Discredit Legitimate Ones? (They're serious)

    New York Magazine ^ | September 26, 2018 | Adam K. Raymond
    With Brett Kavanaugh and Christine Blasey Ford hours away from testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee, a bombshell dropped Wednesday afternoon. The committee released the transcript of a call between GOP staffers and the Supreme Court nominee that included two new allegations of sexual misconduct against Kavanaugh. The dam, it appeared, had broken. But the claims quickly drew skepticism, largely because they’re anonymous, unlike the first three allegations made against Kavanaugh, in which Ford, Deborah Ramirez, and Julie Swetnick went on the record to tell their stories of Kavanaugh’s alleged sexual misconduct. One of the new claims came in the...

    Julie Swetnick, the third woman to accuse Brett Kavanaugh of sexual misconduct, was accused of domestic violence by a former boyfriend in 2001, according to Florida court records. Swetnick’s former boyfriend, Richard Vinneccy, told Politico they dated for four years before breaking up, at which point Swetnick threatened violence against him and his family. The restraining order, filed in Miami-Dade, Fla. on March 1, 2001, was dismissed thirteen days later. “Right after I broke up with her, she was threatening my family, threatening my wife and threatening to do harm to my baby at that time,” Vinneccy said. “I know...

    Democratic leaders need a unified caucus to put maximum pressure on a handful of holdout Republicans. Democrats have all the cover they need to vote in lockstep against Brett Kavanaugh. But a half-dozen of them have refused to go there, even after the pair of sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Democratic insiders are feeling more bullish than ever that the party’s 49 caucus members ultimately will oppose Kavanaugh. Yet the undeclared bloc of Democratic senators could be a problem for Democratic leaders, who want to put the weight of the nomination entirely on a handful of holdout...

    Journalist Jeff Greenfield, writing in the September 17 Politico magazine, somehow can't figure out the real reason "Why Woodward's 'Fear' Flopped in Washington." Greenfield makes a light attempt to find out the reason for the flop but seems to be unable to see the all too obvious.  So let us join Greenfield as he stumbles around while ignoring the very large elephant in the room whose stink is something that liberals don't want to dwell on, which is that Woodward couldn't find evidence of Trump-Russia collusion:

    National Post ^ | March 24, 2013 | Tanner Colby
    Earlier this month, during an interview with Politico, Bob Woodward came forward to claim he’d been threatened in an email by a “senior White House official” for daring to reveal certain details about the negotiations over the budget sequester. The White House responded by releasing the email exchange Woodward was referring to, which turned out to be nothing more than a cordial exchange between the reporter and Obama’s economic adviser, Gene Sperling, who was clearly implying nothing more than that Woodward would “regret” taking a position that would soon be shown to be false. A rather trivial scandal, but the...

    A Twitter official said Tuesday that President Trump does not have a "blanket exception" from a possible ban by the social media platform. The company’s legal and policy chief Vijaya Gadde told Politico that while the company has often given Trump an exception for possible policy violations because of the newsworthiness of his tweets, there is “not a blanket exception for the president or anyone else.”0 The company has come under fire from Trump critics for not punishing the president for specific use of the platform. Trump often uses his account to launch personal attacks on political opponents, criticize the...

    Full headline: Was Hillary Clinton or Dianne Feinstein responsible for the exposure and deaths of 20 CIA spies in China? Criminal Negligence: One of the biggest espionage scandals of the century was briefly exposed earlier this month after a California newspaper reported that a Chinese spy had worked for Sen. Dianne Feinstein for 20 years. Politico — a Left-wing “mainstream” news source if there ever was one — included the bombshell detail as part of a larger report detailing Chinese (and Russian) spying in Silicon Valley, where the nerve center for cutting-edge U.S. technology development is located. Fast-forward to this...

    SEOUL — South Koreans are growing more anxious about President Donald Trump’s commitment to the North Korean nuclear deal, fearing he could simply walk away, having already declared victory back home. The president has earned the respect of many people here for his unconventional diplomacy in meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, even among those who otherwise deride Trump as a “merchant” who lacks the “class” of his predecessor. But behind the surprising goodwill and relentlessly upbeat pronouncements from Seoul officials, there are creeping doubts, according to interviews this summer with current and former government advisers, a leading...

    It the latest example of fake news it turns out that all the recent hype in much of the mainstream media about teens being able to hack state election systems were untrue. The details of what actually happened were revealed in a CNBC article on Friday by Lilia Chang, "No, a teen did not hack a state election."  Among the MSM outlets hyping the teenage hacker story were Politico Magazine and CNN. Of course, once it was revealed that no such hacking really took place they immediately issued corrections to their original fables... I kid! As of this writing no...
