  • Trump should acknowledge sacrifice of NATO soldiers

    lowell sun ^ | 8/14 | peter lucas
    Surrounded as he is by U.S. Army and Marine Corps generals, you would think that President Donald Trump would show some sympathy for NATO soldiers killed in action last week in Afghanistan. But, no, the president is much more inclined to brag about forcing deadbeat NATO country members to pay up, rather than talking about sacrifices these countries are making in the name of NATO. Which is all right. These NATO countries should pay their fair share, which the majority of the 29 country members have not been doing for years. Of these NATO countries, only the U.S., Greece, United...

    The recent utterly unsurprising utter capitulation by the Fredocons to the SJW/tech/media campaign to deplatform and silence any right-wing voice who is not trying to sell you a cruise cabin is a symptom of a bigger problem. It’s not a symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome, though Trump has utterly deranged these pointy-headed geeks. It is a symptom of Conservative, Inc.’s contempt for you.The dethroned conservagimps are angry with you. Donald Trump is not really the issue. He’s just a convenient target for those these establishment sissies. They truly despise you.You.They hate you because you refuse to honor and respect them, to...
  • FBI agent Peter Strzok fired over anti-Trump texts

    The FBI has fired Agent Peter Strzok, who helped lead the bureau’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election until officials discovered he had been sending anti-Trump texts. Aitan Goelman, Strzok’s lawyer, said FBI Deputy Director David L. Bowdich ordered the firing on Friday — even though the director of the FBI office that normally handles employee discipline had decided Strzok should face only a demotion and 60-day suspension. Goelman said the move undercuts the FBI’s repeated assurances that Strzok would be afforded the normal disciplinary process. “This isn’t the normal process in any way more than name,” Goelman...

  • George Will’s Unhinged Anti-Trump Position

    After his recent passing, Charles Krauthammer was justifiably lauded as a leading commentator on public policy from the conservative point of view. Some said he was the single-most important and intelligent conservative force since William F. Buckley. While the praise for Dr. Krauthammer is well-deserved, I thought these comments were remiss by excluding George Will. Simultaneously, Will published a column that seems to display that his Trump Derangement Syndrome has caused him to suffer an apparent nervous breakdown telling people to vote for Democrats. Mr. Will is justified in his thoughts about the (at times) choice of verbiage by our...

    Moore’s threats are fuelled by a big gasbag. And we don’t need to stick a fork in him to know that Michael Moore has long and ever ago been DONE Flamethrower filmmaker Michael Moore hopes to set the world on fire with the release of his latest shock-u-mentary Fahrenheit 11/9 just weeks ahead of November Midterm Elections. Moore’s counting on cashing in on a pandemic Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) and making box office millions by linking President Donald Trump’s America with neo-nazi riots and school shootings.

    Celebrities including Amy Schumer and Chelsea Handler have launched an Instagram campaign targeted at Ivanka Trump, urging the US President's daughter to act on the administration's family-separation policy and calling for the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. As part of the campaign, well-known figures followed by Ivanka Trump on Instagram -- including not just Schumer and Handler, but also American fashion entrepreneur Sophie Amoruso and British model Cara Delevingne -- have been posting messages detailing the alleged abuses of children under controversial family separations at the US-Mexico border in an effort to flood her feed. The coordinated messages...

    A majority of U.S. adults do not know that Paul Manafort is not on trial for “collusion with Russia,” a new poll by The Economist/YouGov Poll reveals. […] Democrats were the most likely (29%) to erroneously think that Manafort is on trial for collusion with Russia, compared to 17% of Independents and 13% of Republicans. In all, 20% of survey respondents cited “collusion.” Another 41% of those surveyed said they were “not sure” what charges Manafort is facing. When those who weren’t sure are added in, 63% of Democrats, 66% of Independents, and 61% of all respondents did not know...

    It's ironic that the loudest of Trump haters routinely breach the very civil standards of decency they claim justify their antipathy. Others are just creepily obsessed. I'm not exaggerating. Trump haters from both sides of the political aisle have fretted themselves into a consuming frenzy against the president. Whatever worldview they had, it is now overlaid with a Trump-animus fixation that obscures rational thought. It has slain their civility and subordinated their passion for certain policies. For them, everything in the Trump era is personal. Convinced of Trump's pure evil, they remorselessly suspend rules they previously observed. Defiant professions...
  • Trump’s Political Tariff Bureaucracy

    Wall Street Journal ^ | August 6, 2018
    Tariffs are taxes, which distort investment and limit growth. And like taxes, when tariffs are high they create a political incentive for exemptions and favoritism. Behold the Commerce Department’s new and tortuous process for reviewing exemptions to steel and aluminum tariffs. This is everything Republicans typically claim to hate. *** First, companies must submit a request attesting that their imports aren’t made in the U.S. in “a satisfactory quality” or “sufficient and reasonably available amount.” Companies must state the uses for their steel product, their average annual consumption of the product, as well as the number of days required to...

    “If there is a sense of cultural irrelevance hovering around me, that’s fine,” says the screenwriter and novelist behind ‘American Psycho,’ ‘Less Than Zero’ Over the past three decades, novelist Bret Easton Ellis has dealt in ultraviolence, casual nihilism and the skewering of America’s superficialities. With his last book, Imperial Bedrooms approaching its 10-year anniversary, it began to seem that Ellis was spinning his wheels. With several savagely reviewed screenwriting ventures in recent years — the 2013 Lindsay Lohan/James Deen erotic thriller The Canyons didn’t exactly set the world on fire — the Bret Easton Ellis brand might not hold...
  • NYT's embattled Sarah Jeong: President Trump is 'basically Hitler'

    Washington Times ^ | August 6, 2018 | Valerie Richardson
    The New York Times said it vetted her social-media history before Sarah Jeong was hired last week, which means the newspaper was presumably aware of her “Trump is Hitler” tweets. In addition to firing off anti-white and anti-cop missives, Ms. Jeong, the latest member of the newspaper’s editorial board, repeatedly equated Donald Trump to Adolph Hitler on Twitter leading up to the 2016 presidential election. Her account included declarations such as “Trump is Hitler,” “Trump = Hitler,” and “trump is basically hitler,” as well as “Was Hitler as rapey as Donald Trump?”

    Rick Gates took the stand in former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort’s trial on Monday, where he testified that the two men committed crimes while working together. Gates, a longtime business associate of Manafort's, was indicted on fraud charges in October, but later pleaded guilty to reduced charges as part of a plea deal. According to multiple news outlets, Gates was asked on Monday if he was involved in criminal activity when working with Manafort. “Yes,” Gates reportedly responded. “Did you commit a crime?” the prosecution asked. “Yes,” Gates replied again. Manafort is on trial in Virginia for various financial...

    It's what Harvard medical researchers call Trump Derangement Syndrome. "In a 2017 essay for a book co-edited by psychiatrists from Harvard Medical School and the Yale School of Medicine, clinical psychologist Jennifer Panning of Evanston, Ill., called the condition 'Trump Anxiety Disorder,' distinguishing it from a generalized anxiety disorder because 'symptoms were specific to the election of Trump and the resultant unpredictable sociopolitical climate,'" Matt Kwong reported for the CBC. "Though not an official diagnosis, the symptoms include feeling a loss of control and helplessness, and fretting about what's happening in the country and spending excessive time on social media,...

    Murphy Brown creator Diane English says she may need to get security protection as she works on the return to CBS of the biting political comedy series. “I might have to have some protection,” English told reporters in a scrum after her show’s Q&A panel at TCA. “I’m not kidding.” English referenced the “scary times” in which the show is coming back with original episodes after two decades. The very first episode, which takes place on November 8, 2016, “really sticks our head into the lion’s mouth,” said star Candice Bergen, boasting, “This show has no fear of anyone.” These...

    Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin tore into White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Sunday, saying she should be shunned from her next job for her false and misleading claims. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is so concerned that people aren’t nice to her,” Rubin told MSNBC’s Joy Reid on "AM Joy." “And people like me think that — not that she should be harassed — but that she should be shunned. The reason is that she lies.” “She attacks our free press and no respectable employer should hire her after this term,” Rubin continued. “Also, no university and no...
  • Opinion: Calling The Press The Enemy Of The People Is A Menacing Move (NPR)

    NPR ^ | Aug 4 '18 | Scott Simon
    "Enemy of the people" is an incendiary phrase. It's been uttered by some of history's most vicious thugs — Robespierre, Goebbels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao — to vilify their opponents ... who were often murdered. President Trump must know that history by now when he calls the press "the enemy of the people." As he must also know the anti-Semitic and racist history of the America First slogan, by which the president describes many of his policies. But Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, pointedly declined the chance this week to say, as Ivanka Tump did, "I do not feel...
  • Trump at a precarious moment in his presidency: Privately brooding and publicly roaring (WAPO)

    In private, President Trump spent much of the past week brooding, as he often does. He has been anxious about the Russia ­investigation’s widening fallout, with his former campaign chairman standing trial. And he has fretted that he is failing to accrue enough political credit for what he claims as triumphs. At rare moments of introspection for the famously self-centered president, Trump has also expressed to confidants lingering unease about how some in his orbit — including his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. — are ensnared in the Russia probe, in his assessment simply because of their ­connection to him.
