On The Front Lines Of
The GOP´s Civil War

Book parties in Manhattan tend to be overspillings of the workday. People stop by in office clothes on their way home—uptown, downtown, to Brooklyn, or out to the suburbs. But in D. C., book parties are social occasions, even when they involve business, which is to say politics, the only business that matters. (Snip)Liberals and conservatives have always commingled easily in Washington, but a year into the presidency of Donald J. Trump, old lines are blurring and new alliances are forming in remarkable ways. Exhibit A is the owner of the grand house on Foxhall Road: David Frum, a former

Comments:
This is about a David Frum book party in October. A gathering of Liberals and disaffected “Republican” NeverTrumpers. A mixed bag who share a common goal: Removing President Trump from office.

Posted because Victor Davis Hanson talked about it in some detail in his essay posted this morning: “The View of the Blinkered”.

The article goes to great lengths to identify people as Republicans, but they are not. They are Uniparty. It is far more important to them to maintain the (corrupt) system than it is to improve things.
They see themselves as intellectuals; people who think a lot but dont do anything. They just expect everyone else to fall in behind their ideas and carry the workload.
They were warned in 2008 and 2012. We dirty flyover Republicans told them we werent happy with their spineless, status quo brand of politics. Instead of paying attention and altering course, they doubled down on establishment. They created Trump out of their own sense of superiority. Now instead of a course correction, their getting tossed around in a Starsky and Hutch turn.
As the swamp drains, we see more and more slimy creatures.

I got as far as Max Boot and had to stop. Gag me with a pitchfork.

I will say this, however...Sam Tanenhaus is a fine writer. Superbly enjoyable reading just for style.

There are a number of names we don’t want to read in this article. That is Tanenhaus’s point. They are the inside the Beltway insulated gang that VDH features in his essay “The View of the Blinkered”.

This article - and VDH’s - are not for drivebys. Neither is the political situation in our country. Anyone who doesn’t want to read and think about what they’ve read is worse than blinkered. They have their heads in deep sand.

A quick skim showed a lot of names of people who I used to read, and who have been revealed to be UniParty fake conservatives who are interested in globalism, Uniparty personal power and are against a free independent America, and our Constitution. They claimed for years to be conservatives, but were selling us our, all the time.

I have no interest any more in them other than to oppose them in every way I can.

Trump is blowing up their evil game, and they are really angry about it.

Years of questions about how so many DC scandals never ended up with any accountability are now slowly beginning to make sense. Henry Kerner is a missing piece of a very frustrating puzzle…Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, we now find a name at the very heart of some of the most controversial investigative collapses in modern political history. The same John McCain staffer who told the IRS to weaponize their database to target Tea Party groups, was intimately involved in Fast-and-Furious, Benghazi, IRS and now -under the Trump administration- “Spygate”.

For the afflicted, Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is plumbing new depths during their secular Roman holiday known as “Because Trump!” Through the hateful hysteria, a discerning media entrepreneur can smell an audience. But, like so many fads before it, how long will the market last for TDS? It can only end with the end of Trump, which the TDS afflicted know must be just around the corner . . . Yet, if the past is any guide, Trump’s undoing is not easily done. Like Wile E. Coyote chasing the Road Runner, the TDS afflicted are sure their next mail order Acme anvil

What a contrast between a proud and highly-educated woman and the Establishment Media creatures clamoring just behind her. Those reporters appear sub-human while the First Lady sits inches away and yet far removed from them. It’s a photo the Establishment has been attempting to bury but Trump supporters are now pushing to go viral. Help the cause. Share it far and wide. (Photo)

Here Are The 41 Republicans Who Voted
Against Securing The U.S. Border
Daily Caller, by Robert Donachie    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 6/23/2018 6:56:46     Post Reply
Forty-one House Republicans voted against a bill Friday that would have secured funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall, addressed Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and included E-verify, among other conservative provisions. Members voted on an amended version of GOP Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Michael McCaul of Texas’s bill that provided more border security funding, only granted DACA recipients a temporary protected three-year legal status with no pathway for citizenship — which moderate Republicans are fervently asking leadership to provide — and included other features. The bill failed in the House in a 193-231 vote Thursday.

Mother Of Crying Child Was

The mother of the crying child featured on the cover of TIME Magazine was previously deported from the United States in 2013, according to ICE. TIME Magazine pasted the image of the young girl crying as President Donald Trump looked down on her, attempting to symbolize the administration’s zero-tolerance immigration policy at the border that leads to family separations. The father of the child later revealed that the girl was never separated from the mother and that the child was only briefly set down so that border patrol agents could perform a pat down. The mother also left three other children behind

Back in the day, I wrote for a president. Not speeches, mind you, but special correspondence and proclamations. Watching this entire nauseating mess with the Justice Department and the FBI—agencies that many believe are corrupt to their core—I thought I’d write a statement for President Donald J. Trump that he could use to address the issue. It goes like this: Today I am announcing as president of the United States and head of the executive branch, acting on behalf of and in the interests of “We the People” I am ordering my subordinates at the Department of Justice and FBI immediately to

In the media’s rush to exploit the plight of migrant children this week, the public testimony of Michael Horowitz has been buried or, more likely, ignored by the news media.(Snip)But one reason Horowitz might have punted in his recent report is because he knows the real bombshells are yet to come: He is investigating the FISA warrant on Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page; the cozy relationship between Justice and FBI officials and the media, including perks for scoops; ex-FBI Director James Comey’s handling of classified information; and the potential doctoring of official documents. “We’ve got lots of investigations going on,” Horowitz

The Media Misrepresents Pope
Francis On The Border Crisis
Daily Wire, by Paul Bois    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 6/22/2018 8:41:56     Post Reply
From the way the media has reported it, you might think that Pope Francis has condemned the Trump administration — and only the Trump administration — for the crisis at the border. "Pope Francis Rebukes Trump Administration Over Family Separations," headlined Politico. "Pope Francis Condemns Trump´s Family Separation Policy," shouted Vox. The same headlines were virtually parroted one way or another by HuffPo and WaPo. Of course, none of these outlets uttered so much as a peep when the Roman Pontiff compared eugenics abortion to Nazi crimes or affirmed the Church´s doctrine of marriage being between a man and a

If there is one thing we can count on in our age of expert ignorance, it is that experts in their intellectual and moral smugness will offer opinions that, if acted on, would simplify complex issues and therefore harm the national good. Thus, Jessica Henderson Daniel, president of the American Psychological Association (APA), has issued the following statement: The administration’s policy of separating children from their families as they attempt to cross into the United States without documentation is not only needless and cruel, it threatens the mental and physical health of both the children and their caregivers.

"UN poverty report blasting Trump, US for ‘hatred for the poor’ uses data from last year of Obama’s presidency," the Fox News headline said. Hahaha. This happened on Obama´s watch, UN.

Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.” Kerner was appointed by President Trump as Special Counsel for the United States Office of Special Counsel. The explosive exchange was contained in notes taken by IRS employees at an April 30, 2013, meeting between Kerner, Lerner, and other high-ranking IRS officials.

The latest cover of Time magazine criticizes President Trump´s tough border policy, by showing him looking down at a crying, two-year-old Honduran girl whose mother was detained after crossing the border.The photoshopped image is the latest ding against Trump and his zero tolerance policy, which led to the increased family separation of illegal immigrants. The cover is captioned, "Welcome to America." (Tweet/Video) On Wednesday, Trump signed an executive order aimed at putting an end to the practice of separating families, after calling on Congress, specifically Democrats, several times to change the laws.

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.

However, the company went on to insist that pulling the upcoming Shana Feste-directed Boundaries, or trying to edit Fonda out of the film, would be “unfair” to the those involved. “It is important to note that Mr. Fonda

An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of
