How two old-school Washington insider

Washington Post, by Ben Terris

The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October, Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, appeared on Fox News to defend him. A minute after his segment ended, his wife and fellow pundit, Mercedes, called to say it might be time to take a break from television. Matt had done a fine enough job. He looked great — white teeth, whiter hair, purple tie, comfy physique of a lobbyist who enjoys a good happy hour. He had signaled his continued support for the GOP nominee while also denouncing as “repugnant” his

Comments:
This is kind of fun. I like both of the Schlaps a lot.

The article is inaccurate from the first sentence. FTA: "The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October..."

That is inaccurate. "You can grab them by the...they let you do it." That´s not bragging about sexually assaulting women. It´s a description of what certain women who orbit the rich and famous will allow, if not invite.

#1, have to inject this since you like Mercedes better. The idea that she evidently said they have "to think about their five daughters" before continuing to support Trump after that Bush audiotape came out is kinda humorous. Matt and Mercedes work in a political arena on a daily basis where filth, adultery, corruption, and unbridled greed are the norm. Gimme a break.

It is nice article and beautiful family, of course. But I have read comments from Washington Post - we are very far from cleaning the swamp. These snowflakes, who forgave everything to Obama and Clinton, have the nerve talking about Trnmp´s amorality! It is so pitty, when brainwashed people start to share their opinion in public. I do not know what can we do with them. On personal level it´s easy - just ignore them. But they are almost half the country, and they will never give up, no matter how we try to convince them. The same way it was in Soviet Union, when people were killed for nothing, but in front of the killing squad they were shouting: "Long live comrad Stalin!". And Stalin signed the order to kill them, and they knew it. Hopeless.

Democrats weigh deal
to let Gorsuch through
Politico, by Burgess Everett    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/23/2017 4:58:24     Post Reply
A group of Senate Democrats is beginning to explore trying to extract concessions from Republicans in return for allowing Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch to be confirmed, according to multiple sources familiar with the matter. The lawmakers worry that Gorsuch could be confirmed whether Democrats try to block him or not — and Democrats would be left with nothing to show for it. That would be a bitter pill after the GOP blocked Merrick Garland for nearly a year. The deal Democrats would be most likely to pursue, the sources said, would be to allow confirmation of Gorsuch in exchange for a

American Retail Legend

Sears Holdings, the parent company of Sears and Kmart, announced in its annual report that "substantial doubt exists related to the company´s ability to continue as a going concern." The long, slow death of a retail legend appears to be inevitable. The death of Sears, while not imminent, brings to a close a significant chapter in American history. For nearly 100 years, Sears dominated the retail and catalog business in America. In rural America especially, Sears "wishbooks" opened a world previously unknown to farmers with reasonable prices for washing machines, ice boxes and other appliances as well as durable goods.

Back in 2009, when President Obama was trying to pass his stimulus package, conservative Erick Erickson accused then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of “spreading a cancer of capitulation.” To help drive this point home, Erickson launched a controversial campaign to “send Mitch some balls.” Today, as the Senate seems on track to confirm Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court, Erickson is giving credit where credit is due. “Though I have my disagreements with Senator McConnell,” Erickson tells me, “it seems very clear that his refusal to entertain the (Merrick) Garland nomination incentivized continued conservative engagement in the 2016 election

Complicit in what?
Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 3/21/2017 5:05:21     Post Reply
"Complicit" is a smooth-sounding word with a rough definition, meaning "involved with others in an activity that is unlawful," or, (according to Webster) "helping to commit a crime or do wrong in some way." When Michelle Obama supported her husband, when Hillary and Chelsea Clinton supported their husband and father, it was described being loyal, being involved, and being assertive, all excellent traits in your present-day woman. Only when Ivanka Trump is supporting her father does it become something quite close to criminal action, and it is the fact that she looks, acts, and lives both the feminist dream AND the

   

 

  


 
New details emerge in
alleged rape of Maryland girl

New, brutal details emerged Monday in the alleged rape of a 14-year-old girl at a Maryland high school by two male students, at least one of whom was in the country illegally. The unidentified student at Rockville High School in Rockville, Md. was violently raped, sodomized and made to perform oral sex in a campus bathroom stall by the two males, according to court records. Jose O. Montano, 17, from El Salvador, and Henry E. Sanchez-Milian, 18, from Guatemala, were charged with first-degree rape and two counts of first-degree sexual offense after they allegedly attacked the girl at 9 a.m. last Thursday. “The

Princeton economics professor emeritus and Nobel laureate Angus Deaton has been running around making an extraordinary claim: “Being really poor in America is in some ways worse than being really poor in India or Africa," he recently told the National Association for Business Economics. Asked about those comments in an interview with the Atlantic, Deaton doubled down: "If you had to choose between living in a poor village in India and living in the Mississippi Delta or in a suburb of Milwaukee in a trailer park, I´m not sure who would have the better life." This claim was qualified—Deaton is referring

Can you feel the pulse-pounding sense of excitement that’s sweeping the nation in the wake of the sudden rise to media prominence of superwoke everywoman Chelsea Clinton? I sure can, but then I’m a conservative Republican. I totally support the Democrats making Chelsea the face of their party. Please, please, please make her the face of your party. Let’s be clear – Chelsea is not an embodiment of malignant evil, as is her harpy mother.

Last week we talked about a rather ludicrous set of demands made by attorneys for confessed pedophile and child rapist Roman Polanski, laying out his “terms” for conditions under which he might return to the United States. His long overdue date in court would apparently only happen if he could be assured that he would not spend one more night behind bars. While I remain sure that this criminal would dearly love to get back for a few more rounds of parties in Hollywood with his friends before he dies, prosecutors in Los Angeles issued a resounding “not so fast”

FBI Director James Comey will enter the House hearing Monday on Russian activities during the presidential election as an imposing figure in many ways -- standing 6-foot-8 and having been at the center of numerous, high-profile criminal probes. His law-enforcement career began in the late 1980s. His relatively short time as head of the FBI includes his decision in July 2016 to investigate Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state. The agency concluded the probe roughly three months later without recommending criminal charges, but it was considered a severe blow to Clinton’s ultimately failed White House bid. Comey,

Trump appointees to head the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency to the contrary, the war on science isn’t limited to conservatives. Liberals have their own anti-science biases. Where conservatives often reject science based on their literal interpretation of the Bible or due to an abhorrence of federal regulations, liberals appear to be motivated by a belief that all things natural are good, anything with a chemical name is bad, and everything that profits an industry is really bad (unless that industry makes dietary supplements).

FREDERICKSBURG, Va. -- For thirty-three years, Terry Labar has been looking up at life. Terry’s career as a U.S. Marine was derailed when a car slammed into him on a road in the Middle East. “I just wanted to put this behind me and start a new chapter,” Terry said. “I never expected anything like this.” The events that day so long ago are fuzzy. Terry said he remembers, “just vaguely going up over the car and hitting my chin.” The Fredericksburg resident was paralyzed from the waist down, and he had difficulty adjusting to his new reality. “I woke up the first day

Sears is on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. All department stores have faced increased competition from Amazon.com, but Sears is out of cash and about to fail. Why? Because the CEO, Eddie Lampert, is a guy with nutty ideas who treated Sears like a dotcom, conveniently forgetting that it has physical stores that need maintaining. (snip) It´s closing hundreds of stores. Others are in shambles, with leaking ceilings and broken escalators. In some, employees hang bedsheets to shield shoppers from sections that stand empty. Before Sears and Kmart, Lampert had no experience in retail. The big plan he hoped would transform Sears

Last week, the British intelligence agency GCHQ took the rare step of debunking as “utterly ridiculous” the Trump administration’s insinuation that Britain spied on Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. On Monday, FBI Director James B. Comey testified plainly that “I have no information that supports” President Trump’s accusations that his predecessor ordered the “wires tapped” at Trump Tower. These false statements from the White House are part of a disturbing pattern of behavior that poses real and potentially profound dangers to U.S. national security.

Armed Police have opened fire and shot an intruder inside the grounds of the Houses of Parliament amid reports a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge. Several shots were fired at around 2.35pm moments after a loud bang was heard near the grounds of Parliament. Three bodies were visible on the floor outside Parliament and the Palace was placed on an immediate lock down. Others were seen lying in the road on Westminster Bridge, where reports suggest around six people were knocked down by a car.

"My view is very simple," Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told a news conference on Tuesday.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for a delay of Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch’s confirmation on Tuesday given the ongoing FBI investigation into potential collusion between President Donald Trump’s campaign and Russian officials. “You can bet, if the shoe were on the other foot and a Democratic president was under investigation by the FBI, the Republicans would be howling at the moon about filling a Supreme Court seat in such circumstances,” Schumer said on the floor. Schumer’s demand is highly unlikely to gain traction with Senate GOP leaders, who are planning a vote on Gorsuch early next month. But the move

In an extraordinary set of statements to reporters, Republican Rep.

Nunes, who served on Trump´s transition team, said he believes the intelligence collections were done legally but that identities of Trump officials and the
