Donald Trump Jr. Blasts
Steve Bannon With Sarcasm

Daily Caller, by Betsy Rothstein

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 1/3/2018 3:48:56 PM

Donald Trump Jr. is taking a beating in a new book by Michael Wolff. The spanking comes from former top White House aide Steve Bannon, who heads up Breitbart News after being fired from his 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue gig. In Michael Wolff‘s buzzy book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Bannon eviscerates Don Jr., saying President Trump‘s eldest son would be “cracked like an egg on national TV” for meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump tower. He called it “treasonous.” Don Jr. isn’t keeping quiet. On Wednesday afternoon he used his Twitter platform of 2.41 million followers

This is based on a book.

I seriously doubt that Bannon said any of this.

Fake News.

I am not seeing the stories, etc. I would expect to see if Bannon were innocent. However, thinking about the time that has passed since his firing; I perceive that the volume of really bad stories has decreased.

I read the first paragraphs of that book in the New Yorker article. No context. Trump was not acting as a person who wanted to lose prior to the election (think of McCain and Romney). However, if on election day, Trump thought he was going to lose, the behavior described in the article/book would be a case of looking for a pony in the pile.

Stand by. This is all based on Wolff´s account. Let´s get some factual backup and corroboration, and then draw our conclusions. Breitbart News Tonight airs in less than an hour on SiriusXM Patriot 125. Bannon normally comes on in the final hour (11PM EST), but possibly sooner tonight. I´ll be listening closely.

Don, Jr. has enough of his father´s spunk and guts to not sit still for accusations like that!
Understanding that most news is never complete on the first showing, it will be interesting to see if/how words were twisted or 180 degrees from the truth.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas lamented the confirmation process for judicial nominees, calling them “spectacles” and warning Thursday he fears the federal judiciary will lose “some of our best people” who decide not to go through with it.“I don’t think the process is what it ought to be,” Thomas said Thursday during an event at the Library of Congress. “These are serious jobs, and they should be serious.

The Chicago Park District on Wednesday approved pushing ahead to turn parts of Cornell Drive into parkland — with the closure of roads in Jackson Park a sizzling community controversy related to the development of the Obama Presidential Center — and still facing multiple reviews. The board voted unanimously Wednesday to start negotiations to swap 6 acres it owns in Jackson Park at the edges of streets for 8 acres of roads — not all contiguous — the city of Chicago holds in the same park.The sterile language of the legislation doesn’t tell the whole story. The proposed swap would

On Thursday morning, discussing the massacre at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough quoted a misleading statistic in order to emphasize how dangerous he thought guns were, saying there are 33,000 people killed by guns in America every year. Scarborough said to co-host Mika Brzezinski, “Mika, here we are again. More than 33,000 people are killed by guns in the United States every year. That’s according to the CDC. 33,000. We’ve had 1,607 mass shootings since Sandy Hook when we said, ‘Never again.’”There’s one key factor that Scarborough left out: the huge percentage of gun

Even in the midst of an unfolding tragedy, the mainstream media looks for ways to take potshots at President Trump.The liberal gymnastics were on display as news outlets turned reporting on the deadly school shooting in Florida Wednesday to their favorite topic of gun control. But over at ABC News, one reporter took the opportunity to strangely link Trump to the horrific scene at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School where 17 people were killed. ABC reporter Cecilia Vega covered the breaking story and told viewers that the president had been briefed on the events so far. But she took a

President Trump was right to demand Wednesday that new immigration legislation provide at least $25 billion to secure our southern border, end chain migration that allows legal immigrants to bring their extended families to the U.S., and end a diversity lottery system that gives preferential treatment to immigrants from nations that send few people to America. The Republican proposal before the Senate that the president endorsed would also grant legal status to some 1.8 million immigrants who were largely brought to the U.S. illegally as children.While it is natural to sympathize with these young people, that sympathy must be balanced

Temporary protection for Dreamers could be squeezed into a March spending package along with border security funding, lawmakers said after the Senate failed to pass a more comprehensive measure on Thursday. Senators announced the new plan after emerging from the chamber, where lawmakers defeated four immigration-related measures offered by both parties that would have provided Dreamers with permanent protection from deportation. Two of the measures included $25 billion for border security and a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million younger immigrants, or Dreamers, who came here illegally as children and may be at risk of deportation with the expiration of

Democrats immediately politicized the Florida school shooting that left at least 17 people dead on Wednesday and demanded gun control legislation, even before it was known how the shooter got his gun and whether any proposed legislation would have stopped it. Some Democrats blamed Republicans for Wednesday’s tragedy, without citing any evidence whatsoever. “Republicans should pray for forgiveness, for not only their complacency and dereliction of duty, but in contrition for the men, women and children we continue to lay to rest because of senseless gun violence and the cowardly inaction from Congress,”

Student leaders at a high school in the San Francisco Bay Area have decided that the national anthem is racist and outdated and have banned it from school rallies. According to multiple area news outlets, the Associated Student Body at California High School in San Ramon made that decision based on a phrase in the rarely-played third verse. “It was brought to our attention that the national anthem’s third verse is outdated and racially offensive,” Ariyana Kermanizadeh wrote in an open letter. “We had nothing but good intentions by removing the song so that we could be fully inclusive to our student

Washington - There is "ample evidence" that the Trump campaign colluded with Russians, but only special counsel Robert Mueller can decide if it´s enough to prove a crime beyond a reasonable doubt, the senior Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee said Wednesday. "There is already, in my view, ample evidence in the public domain on the issue of collusion if you're willing to see it," Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif, told reporters at a newsmaker breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. "If you want to blind yourself, then you can look the other way."

"The No. 1 job in America ... is someone who doesn´t understand the people, and really don´t give a f**k about the people,” James said in a video recorded last month with ESPN’s Cari Champion and fellow NBA player Kevin Durant. The video was filmed as Trump had come under scrutiny for reportedly referring to some countries as “shithole countries,” prompting Champion to address Trump’s “racist comments.” "It´s not even a surprise when he says something," James said. "It´s like, laughable. It´s laughable and it´s scary." “While

President Trump’s legal team is citing a three-pillar argument to convince investigators, and the public, that President Trump shouldn’t sit down for an interview with special counsel Robert Mueller. Mr. Mueller wants access to the president as part of an inquiry into suspected obstruction of justice in the firing of the special counsel’s longtime friend, FBI Director James B. Comey, in May. The president’s legal team has resisted but not given a firm no. Here are the arguments against an interview. • The White House has given Mr. Mueller unprecedented access to White House documents and people. • There is no stated crime. •

He preened with guns and knives on social media, bragged about shooting rats with his BB gun and got kicked out of school — in part because he had brought bullets in his backpack, according to one classmate. He was later expelled for still-undisclosed disciplinary reasons. The portrait of Nikolas Cruz, suspected of fatally shooting 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland and wounding 15 others at his former school, is a troubled teen with few friends and an obsessive interest in weapons. Administrators considered him enough of a potential threat that one teacher said a warning

President Trump’s needling of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s unsupported claim to Native American ancestry has hit its mark.

(snip) her claim implying that her paternal grandparents were racists in opposing marriage to an Indian-heritage girl is false and despicable, besmirching the reputation of long-dead ancestors for political gain.

Was the presidential portrait of Barack Obama made in China? Sources say artist Kehinde Wiley — who painted the former president before a background of greenery and flowers — has studios in China and produces most of his work there. “It’s his base of operation,” said art critic Charlie Finch, who has known Wiley and appreciated his talent since they were students at Yale. “He has dozens of assistants working for him.” While Obama sat for Wiley for several hours, the portrait may have been sent to China to be completed. “Normally, Wiley sketches out the important parts, and assistants fill out the rest,”
