What if the Trump-Sessions feud is one big charade?
American Thinker, by Brian C. Joondeph    Original Article
Posted By: my stars 22- 7/27/2017 2:42:47 AM     Post Reply
President Donald Trump has been attacking his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, daily. There have been brutal attacks on Twitter, in media interviews, and during speeches. Conventional wisdom is that Trump is getting ready to fire Sessions or hoping Sessions resigns. Conventional wisdom also assured everyone that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide, the only question being by how large a margin. Trump´s complaint is that his attorney general should not have recused himself from the Russia hacking hoax and that he is dragging his feet on long overdue investigations and prosecutions: Deep State leaks; unmasking; DNC and Clinton collusion

‘Conform or else’: Democrats bully conservative
women, minorities

On Monday, the Democrats were really excited about their new slogan, “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.” Widely ridiculed for being idiotic, here’s a slogan they could have chosen, which is much more honest about the current liberal agenda: “A Bully’s Deal: If You Ever Think For Yourself and Don’t Conform, We’ll Ruin Your Life.” This slogan has been operational for a generation. It is shouted at conservative women, gays and other minorities because, you see, today’s Democrats cannot afford to have anyone in any of their protected classes get the idea that they can think for themselves.

Washington - About two weeks after teasing a potential bid for US Senate, musician Kid Rock announced early Thursday morning that he is creating a non-profit to promote voter registration. "The one thing I´ve seen over and over is that although people are unhappy with the government, too few are even registered to vote or do anything about it. (Snip) He also said he'd hold a news conference in the next six weeks to address the non-profit and a potential Senate run. "If I decide to throw my hat in the ring for US Senate, believe me... it's game on," the statement says. Kid Rock, a supporter of President Donald Trump,

Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton assessed the limited options for the Trump administration in the wake of new reports that North Korea could have a nuclear-capable intercontinental ballistic missile as early as next year. U.S. officials warn Pyongyang could be readying another test-launch, as the hermit dictator threatens to strike the U.S. with a "powerful nuclear hammer" if it attempts regime change. (Snip) He said the last diplomatic option involves China and convincing them that it´s in their best interest to unite the Koreas. "The way you eliminate the North Korean nuclear program is to eliminate North Korea.

The Cruelty and Cynicism
of Trump’s Transgender Ban
New Yorker, by David Remnick    Original Article
Posted By: PageTurner- 7/27/2017 1:59:49 AM     Post Reply
Nearly a half century ago, young Donald Trump—a Wharton graduate, and an avid player of squash, football, and tennis—scored a 1-Y medical deferment. Hundreds of thousands of young men were being deployed to Vietnam. Trump had some bone spurs. He then limped happily into his father’s real-estate business without delay. When Trump was interviewed by the Times about his deferment during the 2016 campaign, he admitted that the foot condition was “temporary” and “minor”—usually orthotics or stretching eased the pain—and yet, “I had a doctor that gave me a letter—a very strong letter on the heels.” He promised the paper

A transgender former Navy SEAL has spoken out against President Trump’s ban on transgender military members, saying he is preventing soldiers from doing their service. “Let´s meet face to face and you tell me I´m not worthy,” Kristin Beck, a retired SEAL Team 6 member who has fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, told Business Insider. Beck was awarded the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal during her time in the service, when she kept her gender identity a secret, according to a 2015 profile in GQ.

San Francisco - Russian intelligence agents attempted to spy on President Emmanuel Macron´s election campaign earlier this year by creating phony Facebook personas, according to a U.S. congressman and two other people briefed on the effort. About two dozen Facebook accounts were created to conduct surveillance on Macron campaign officials and others close to the centrist former financier (Snip) Facebook said in April it had taken action against fake accounts that were spreading misinformation about the French election. But the effort to infiltrate the social networks of Macron officials has not previously been reported.

A new report from the Government Accountability Office highlights alarming statistics for the program that´s considered the country´s largest residential, educational, career and technical training program for low-income youth.

Donald Trump’s Assault
on Jeff Sessions

It’s heartening to see that President Trump’s weeklong, passive-aggressive assault on his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, has crossed a line even for many of the president’s most stalwart supporters. Rush Limbaugh called Mr. Trump’s behavior “unseemly” on his radio show Monday. Of Mr. Sessions he said, “I hate to see him being treated this way.” Over in the Trump-friendly confines of Fox News, Tucker Carlson said the president’s humiliation of the attorney general was “a useless, self-destructive act,” and Mr. Carlson implored Mr. Trump: “For God’s sake, lay off Jeff Sessions. He’s your friend, one of the very few you

Politico: GOP Reps. Prompted Donald Trump

A mid-July pro-transgender vote on the House floor prompted President Donald Trump to reject the Pentagon’s 2016 endorsement of soldiers who have “gender identity” problems, according to Politico. Trump’s decision was intended to ease passage of the 2018 defense authorization bill, which includes $1.6 billion for the president’s border wall. But the bill is being held up by a dispute over funding to cover the costs of medical care offered by the prior administration to military adults, spouses and their children who say they want to live as “transgender” members of the opposite sex. According to Politico:

House rejects Republican bills
to punish CBO over scoring errors

Conservatives failed in their bid Wednesday to punish the Congressional Budget Office for its grim evaluations of GOP health care proposals, with the House rejecting two different efforts to strip funding from the nonpartisan agency. Both Democratic and Republican leaders had opposed the efforts to spank the CBO, saying that Congress needs an independent auditor to evaluate spending, no matter how far off the estimates may turn out to be. Conservatives were upset earlier this year after the CBO projected that the GOP’s Obamacare repeal-and-replace bill would leave some 23 million fewer Americans with



Hillary Clinton’s upcoming book:
Make way for the pity party

Hillary Clinton, of “I Should’ve Won the White House!” fame, apparently isn’t content to deliver 10- and 20-second talking points from her national podium about the dang Russians who worked with President Donald Trump to give him that presidential title. She’s gotta write a book about it, too. That’s right. Clinton’s new book will reportedly double down on the Russian election interference angle — as well as one that rings in former FBI chief James Comey as a heavy factor in her loss, too. She just wants to get the story out, her friends privately say. “She really believes that’s why she lost, and she wants to explain why in no

Anthony Scaramucci finally has his White House job, but he still stands to profit from an ownership stake in his investment firm SkyBridge Capital. The incoming White House communications director earned $4.9 million from his ownership stake in SkyBridge in addition to more than $5 million in salary between Jan. 1, 2016, and the end of June, when he joined the Export-Import Bank, according to a financial disclosure filed with the Office of Government Ethics. The disclosure form hasn’t been previously reported. The disclosure highlights the extensive wealth Scaramucci has accumulated in his career —

Just before noon, the Associated Press ended almost 18 hours of silence on the arrest of IT staffer Imran Awan yesterday as he was attempting to leave the country. The report spun the news in the most favorable way it could for beleaguered Democrats, making Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz look like the victim as it headlined her spokesman´s claim that she fired Awan Tuesday after learning of his arrest. The fact is that Schultz has been involved in obstructing investigations into Awan´s activities for months. Here are the headline and first few paragraphs of that conveniently unbylined AP report (also saved

This is hard to swallow. The US military blows $41.6 million a year on Viagra for its troops — about five times more than the estimated medical costs for transgender servicepeople, according to a new report. Spending on the little blue pills is part of $84 million total the military plunks down annually for erectile dysfunction medicines, according to the Washington Post, which cited a 2015 report by the Military Times. The eye-popping stats resurfaced Wednesday, the same day President Trump announced a ban on transgender people serving in the military because of “the tremendous medical costs and disruption that

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee passed an amendment on Wednesday requesting documents related to former FBI Director James Comey´s communications with the Obama administration and journalists. According to The Washington Post, the amendment guts a resolution of inquiry introduced by Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) asking for documents related to Comey´s firing in May.

A group of Iowa businessmen filed a lawsuit Wednesday against United Airlines over the death of a giant rabbit after a flight from London to Chicago. The businessmen filed the lawsuit more than three months after airline workers found the continental rabbit, named Simon, dead on April 20. The animal had been placed in a United kennel in Chicago´s O´Hare airport while awaiting a connecting flight to Kansas City, where his new owners planned to pick him up. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages to cover the costs of the rabbit as well as punitive damages. Attorney Guy Cook represents three

Fact-checking website Snopes is on the verge of financial collapse after its owner was accused of embezzling company funds to pay for his contentious divorce battle and lavish overseas trips with his new wife, a former Las Vegas escort and porn actress. The company´s financial woes have gotten so bad that Snopes´ owner David Mikkelson started a crowd-funding website pleading for donations this week, which raised over $500,000 from generous readers in its first day. But DailyMail.com can disclose significant facts which are entirely missing from the fact-checking website´s version of events - including the fraud allegations against Mikkeslon.

A funny thing happened on the way to the circus: Tim Tebow, it turns out, can play a little. This probably comes as a surprise to you, because it almost certainly comes as a surprise to the Mets. The only people this doesn’t surprise, in truth, are those Tebow acolytes willing to believe he’s capable of just about anything. It was 12 days ago that Sandy Alderson tried to throw cold water on the notion the Mets were pondering Tebow as a call-up after Sept. 1, when rosters can expand from 25 to 40. “Never crossed my mind until about
