George Will scorns Pence
for the high crime of decency

Fox News, by William Bennett

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 5/13/2018 5:18:08 AM

Conservative syndicated columnist George Will wrote this week that Vice President Mike Pence has “become America’s most repulsive public figure.” Why does Will think Pence deserves this absurd slur? Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man. Will announced in 2016 that he was leaving the Republican Party over the nomination of Donald Trump as the GOP’s presidential candidate. So it is no surprise that Will has become part of the so-called “resistance” to the duly elected president of the United States. He’s even become a contributor to NBC and its

Prissy George Will, along with Peggy Noonan the leading practitioner of clutch-your-pearls journalism.

The further we get into Trump´s presidency, the more and more petulant and irrelevant these Never Trumper´s appear. They will go to their graves ignoring their lying eyes.

Wait, wait, wait. George Will. Isn´t he one of the ´I can´t stand Trump because he´s so coarse´ crowd?\

Trump´s too coarse.
Pence is too decent.

If George Will disappeared from the Earth today his absence would for the most part go unnoticed. That’s what happens when bitter sanctimonious know-it-all’s leave us. He’s a Pharisee of the worst order given to pointing out the imagined flaws of good men who attempt great things while he sits on the sidelines pontificating. Let him spew his self-righteous rhetoric while genuinely decent men get the job done for the American people.

George will went off the rails about 10 years ago when he concluded that a flowery vocabulary was a sign of brilliance. He seems to have forgotten the maxim that brevity is the soul of wit. To attack a man like Mike Pence as “repulsive“, is nothing short of delusional unless you believe that people of faith are repulsive. If anything is repulsive it is the humanist high dudgeon of an immoral man.

Will is a very bright and talented man. But he has always had a kind of misanthropic, edgy bitterness about him and it has come fully to the fore with the elections of Trump and Pence.

Will needs a dose of constructive humility - the kind that tells you that you are not the straw that stirs the drink, and that your own complacent sense of self can be (and sometimes is) upended by unlikely people in unexpected situations.

God kinda sorta planned the world that way. Slinging insults and million dollar words around isn´t going to change that. I hope George Will and those other snotty #NeverTrumpers figure that out one day.

I used to like the man. I actually met him at a Chamber of Commerce dinner in the late 90s. I don´t know what happened but, he is not the same man I used to like and respect.

It seems some of these guys don´t grasp the importance of what Trump is doing to advance conservatism. Yes, he´s a little crass. However, the results are far better than any of the main stream republican candidates in 2016.

Results matter and Trump is getting results. Imagine where we could be if the RINO congress actually worked with him or there was not the Russia, Russia fiasco to deal with. Imagine where we would be if Hillary was in an orange pant suit where she belongs. Just Imagine!

I liked some of Will´s criticisms of previous politicians when those politicians went counter to constitutional norms, always very civil arguments. But when he pronounced Donald Trump´s inaugural address dreadful, I wondered where the principled argument went. Trump is so bad that Will had to haul out the heavy verbal artillery? I don´t think so.

George F. Will knows a lot of words.

What has become clear is that he confuses his sesquipedalian erudition for principled substance.

Here´s another word he surely knows, flibbertigibbet; it represents his middle initial, after all. Flibbertigibbet suits him, and it´s fun to say if you have the time, but fop will do in a pinch.

George Will sprearheaded the destruction of Gary Aldrige´s life for writing Unlimited Access, a book Will said was all lies, and how dare Aldridge write a book since he was only an FBI agent and not a journalist.

George Will led the charge against Sean Hannity in 2007 for trying to make known the truth about Barack Obama wrt Wright, Ayres, Frank Davis, the Little Red Schoolhouse, Obama´s skill inn teaching about Saul Alinsky, etc, etc. THEN during Obama´s presidency, George Will wrote about those very things as if he were the one who just discovered them.

And you´ll be shocked to know the ONE and only journalist who apologized for helping to ruin Gary Aldridge, and admitting that every word in Aldridge´s book ended up being exactly true. It wasn´t George Will. It was Dan Rather.

I used to respect Will----and Noonan (rarely bother to read her in the weekend Journal anymore) but their emotional reactions to Trump have so clouded their judgements that they aren´t worth bothering about at this point---so predictable! A LOT of us who voted for Trump shudder at his boorishness and his ego re: everything, BUT WE ALSO SEE WHAT HE IS ACCOMPLISHING and that makes ALL the difference re: our support and continued votes. The Dems---and Will et al., are so irrational in their opposition that they are making it easy.

On first encounter Will seems an interesting person. But that thought fades away when one realizes that he uses inflated words to present small ideas within an overly limited vision. Being prissy also makes him unlikable. If he were prissy yet insightful or even eccentric then he could be interesting. He really is a stiff who got overly offended when he insulted President Trump and the president told him that his glasses were a device to mask his low intelligence (or words to those effect). President Trump knows the art of the insult. He goes to the heart of his accusers weaknesses and it has been devastating for some of the self-impressed slingers of self-righteous anger.

I think that Will, more than an actual champion of Conservatism, is more like the contrarian member of ´elite America´. Like so many of the GOPe, he didn´t care if Hilliary got elected, because she was a member of the club. Trump is like Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack, a non-member who actually understands the ´little people´, but not elite, in their minds.

The fact that their eliteness exists only in their minds, and the minds of their sycophants, completely eludes them. They´ve believed they command our respect and admiration because of their imagined greatness, and it is shocking to them to learn otherwise.

They look at everything as a personal game, where they´re all lead characters in a game of thrones, while many in the masses have decided the game is rugby, and are getting ready to play for real.

George Will liked it when the Republican party blindly followed Democratic lead. He thinks it was bipartisanship. Two problems with that George. The Republican party is still suppose to offer an alternative to the democrats. What the Republican party was doing wasn´t bipartisanship, it was capitulation.

George Will left the Republican party? He´s not missed.

Vice President Pence is a very good man, an actual Boy Scout. The by now quite repulsive soulless intellectual idolator George Will self-identifies as an atheist. I´d wager (and I´m not kidding) that he´s got a demon. He needs Jesus in his life; he needs faith in something bigger than his very finite brain.

Judging from his recent columns, Will has gone completely over the edge. He now makes Bill Kristol look like a Trump supporter in comparison, and writes with a hysterical, grade school-level malevolence that Maureen Dowd would envy.

All of those years spent stuffed in his high school locker must have finally caught up with him.

I have met both George Will and Bill Bennett. Will is a fussy, full-of-himself man. Bennett is a comfortable, slightly rumpled but down-to-earth decent guy. I would compare Will with Ted Kopple, who was so full of himself that he barely noticed the surrounding world.

Will is upset because he was thrashed by Bill O´Reilly. His ´journalistic´ ego is in tatters, so he lashes out at Mike Pence, a decent guy if there ever was one. Trust me, this is all personal. It has finally dawned on Will that he is no longer at the center of the journalistic universe and is, indeed, dull bordering on soporific.

There is a concerted move to destroy Mike Pence by the left and the never Trumpers on the right have joined in. I seriously think they believe that if their coup is successful that they will be able to "install" the Hildebeast to her rightful place (in their minds only).

For an explanation of Will’s and other beltway insiders’ behavior, look no further than the Gospels’ account of the Pharisees. They hated Jesus because He was all about taking away their power: so much so that they plotted to kill Him in order to nullify the threat He posed.

Trump is proving once again that people in power naturally resist perceived threats to their privileged positions. Sadly, some traits of human behavior in a fallen world never change.

#35, I like your analogy of Trump being like the Rodney Dangerfield character in "CaddyShack". I would also add like in "Back to School." Rodney is the uncouth, but very successful businessman who is constantly being upbraided by the priggish male professor who couldn´t survive in the real business world. Trump is often undisciplined, but he has gotten amazing results in the face of unbelievable hostility.

My first thoughts usually drift towards blackmail or bribery when someone suddenly appears to go bat-s crazy for no apparent reason.

With this guy, I figure he´s a little panicky at seeing his image fade in the taillights from the inevitable rearview mirror POV.

He enjoyed being a semi-heavy and now he´s not even that.

Norma Desmond is always looking for a new butler; maybe George should drop off a résumé.

Gee. I thought that little georgia had died a few years ago. Maybe that was because I quit reading, watching or listening to those Anti-American outfits that worship him.

Will proves that good and evil cannot exist in the same space.
If VP Pence is repulsive, what about the rest of people trying to be better Catholics/Christians each day?

When the (engineered) flood of illegal children began in earnest, George Will actually said this (paraphrased):

´We have 3,400-odd counties in the 50 States. Surely they can and should rehome all these new arrivals.´

In his latter days, perhaps all of his days, Will is indistinguishable from Barack Obama, Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton in his utter disdain for the land beyond the Beltway and his even stronger disdain for the people living there. As far as he´s concerned America is a dump that shouldn´t kick up a fuss about receiving another truckload.

This is what voter suppression doesn´t look like
Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 6/19/2018 5:11:16     Post Reply
In one of their brave bursts of rage at the police state they live in, Democrats are now up in arms about voter suppression. They compare it to the days before the Civil Rights Acts and the civil rights movement. Nonwhites in the South were kept from the ballot by heavy poll taxes, tests laden with arcane bits of knowledge, or the threat or reality of actual violence. Those were cases of people who were longing to vote, but deprived of the franchise by malice aforethought. Today, things are about as different as you can imagine. Today, the supposed problem

Satisfaction with country higher than at any

More Americans are satisfied with the country’s direction than at any point during the Obama presidency, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. The survey found that 38 percent of the population is content with the way things are going — the highest rate since 39 percent of the country reported they were satisfied in September of 2005. The satisfaction rate, which Gallup began tracking in 1979, is also back in line with the historical average of 37 percent. And it’s the first time since 2005 that Gallup has recorded consecutive months with satisfaction above 35 percent. Last month, 37

It’s a story reminiscent of a spy novel. But the scandal surrounding Imran Awan has plenty of elements of the surreal and the farcical, too. Awan was a congressional IT staffer. Numerous members of his family joined him on the congressional payroll. Now he is awaiting trial for bank fraud. What started in 2016 as an investigation into equipment and data theft has evolved into a case about falsely obtaining home equity loans and sending money to Pakistan. As the probe evolves, there have been dozens of shocking reports about the family’s activities and access. The plot twists have spawned numerous conspiracy

The Social Benefits of Fossil

As several cities continue their suit against oil companies, The People of the State of California v. BP, Judge William Alsup has boiled the case down to its pivotal question. In March he ordered the legal counsels of both parties to help him weigh “the large benefits that have flowed from the use of fossil fuels” against the possibility that such fuels may be causing global warming. We sent the judge, and posted online, a 24-page document that answers his question. The benefits of oil, coal and gas are rarely acknowledged by environmental activists, who seek to regulate and tax these

While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton´s secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not. The agents´ primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence

Mount Everest, the high-altitude rubbish dump

Decades of commercial mountaineering have turned Mount Everest into the world´s highest rubbish dump as an increasing number of big-spending climbers pay little attention to the ugly footprint they leave behind. Fluorescent tents, discarded climbing equipment, empty gas canisters and even human excrement litter the well-trodden route to the summit of the 8,848-metre (29,029-foot) peak. "It is disgusting, an eyesore," Pemba Dorje Sherpa, who has summited Everest 18 times, told AFP. "The mountain is carrying tonnes of waste." As the number of climbers on the mountain has soared -- at least 600 people have scaled the world´s highest peak so far this year

How the Queen and Meghan Markle
Became Besties So Quickly

It was an extraordinary sight—as the queen and Meghan Markle sat on chairs watching a performance by a group of schoolchildren on Thursday, Meghan leant over and whispered something in her grandmother-in-law’s ear, and the monarch chuckled. Her Majesty then made a canoeing action, in friendly imitation of the kids’ performance, and laughed again. The queen has a fairly simple policy on public emotion which is to not show it, ever, and this is not because she is some unthinking adherent to the principle of the stiff upper lip, but just because it makes life simpler, and avoids people being upset

Liza Minnelli is lucky no one bought her Andy Warhol collection two years ago — she’ll end up much richer by selling off the paintings one by one. A source in Switzerland reports one of Minnelli’s 22 Warhols — a silk-screen of her mother Judy Garland — was just sold by Larry Gagosian for $7 million to an unnamed buyer. It was one of three portraits of Judy in Liza’s collection, which also includes four portraits of herself and three of her father Hollywood director Vincente Minnelli. I reported two years ago that Liza was asking $40 million for the entire collection, trying

An Internet search for “Father’s Day 2018” brings up a top hit: “20 Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts That Are Amazon Prime-Eligible.” Now, like most dads, I’m not one to complain about receiving gifts (especially when they involve a good weekend of fishing), but something is wrong when popular culture understands the obligations of Father’s Day as nothing more than a 30-minute phone call and shipping your dad something Amazon’s website said were “Dad’s Favorites.” Like so many other things in our culture today, the commercialization of this holiday obscures its true meaning.

It seems like a day doesn’t go by without some female high school teacher getting arrested for having sexual relations with an underage student. The story line is always the same. Ms. Hotpants either gets caught in the act or because her student paramour shares with the world the naked selfies that for some weird reason she just had to send to his cell phone. Invariably the teacher is quickly and unceremoniously condemned, fired from her job and arrested. This sequence of events always seemed appropriate. But, having had the benefit of reading the recent report by the Justice Department’s

The law is supposed to apply equally to all of us. But some of us seem to be more equal that others. In what appears to be a not-so-coincidental effort by the anti-Trump deep state to distract from the damning Department of Justice Inspector General’s report yesterday — shedding light on the FBI’s gross mishandling of the Clinton email investigation — New York’s attorney general dropped a headline-grabbing lawsuit against Donald Trump, his three eldest children and Trump foundation directors. The suit alleges a series of misdeeds by the Trump family in how they’ve operated its charitable foundation over the past

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is just about killing it at the global body. In recent remarks to the General Assembly, Haley first condemned the anti-Israel faction of the bunch for using the global body for politics, not peace promotion. And then, dramatically enough, she brought to vote a U.S.-penned measure that explicitly faulted Hamas for violence at the Gaza border — a measure that was tacked on as an amendment to an anti-Israel resolution and that actually received the thumbs-up from the majority of the voting parties. Did you get that? It actually received a majority backing. This Haley amendment

It lived an uneventful life in Earth´s oceans 500 million years ago, but now this newly discovered creature has an unusual honor: It´s been given the scientific name Obamus coronatus, a name that honors President Barack Obama´s passion for science. (Coronatus means "crowned.") The tiny, disc-shaped animal was about a 1/2 inch long, with raised spiral grooves on its surface. It spent its entire life embedded on the ocean floor, likely never moving, according to scientists from the University of California – Riverside. A second small animal, an egg-shaped critter that may have looked like a raisin, was also discovered.

Michelle Obama joined her fellow former first lady Laura Bush Monday in criticizing the hard-line Trump administration immigration policy that has led to families being separated at the border. Bush, the wife of former President George W. Bush, penned a tweet over the weekend in which she echoed the widespread condemnation of the new directive from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “I live in a border state,” Bush said. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Quoting that tweet, Obama wrote that “sometimes truth transcends

Hillary Clinton weighed in Monday morning on the ongoing controversy regarding the Trump administration’s "no-tolerance” border policy, suggesting that Jesus would not condone the actions of the American border authorities. At an awards lunch for the Women’s Forum of New York, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee called out “those who selectively use the Bible” to give grounds for the separations, which were reported by the Department of Justice on Friday. “I went to a lot of years of Sunday school — even taught it from time to time.

Republican Senate candidate Mitt Romney called on the Trump administration Monday to stop separating immigrant families at the southern border, calling the controversy a “humanitarian crisis” that requires Congress to devise a permanent solution. Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee, declined to blame President Trump or the Department of Homeland Security specifically in remarks to a group of voters at a park here. He called images of children separated from their parents “pretty disturbing” and “heartbreaking.” “I think immediately we should go back to the setting where we’re not ripping children away from their parents, and then we expect Congress to take

LANSING — The unprecedented outpouring of activism from students after the shooting at Marjorie Douglas Stoneman High School in Parkland, Fla., in February is the genesis for a bill introduced in the Legislature last week that would change the voting age in Michigan to 16. "We allow 16-year-olds to go off and get jobs and pay taxes, but we fail to allow them to exercise their voice come election time," said Sen. David Knezek, D-Dearborn Heights. "Young people are setting aside their differences and identifying issues they think need to change. And they can do everything to get that change

Illegal Immigration: The latest outrage by the Trump administration is its policy of "ripping" children away from parents who´ve crossed the border illegally. As with so many other things involving Trump, there´s plenty of emotion but precious little in the way of facts. The furor reached critical mass after the Department of Homeland Security said on Friday that 1,995 children had been separated from their illegal border crossing parents from mid-April through May. That number included, DHS said, cases where the adults were arrested for illegal entry, immigration violations, or possible criminal conduct. The practice has generated a rising storm of protests,

Roseanne Barr has become untouchable due to the "Valerie Jarrett/Ambien/Planet of the Apes" controversy, irrevocably contaminated by racism. This presents a problem for ABC, which canceled her revived show but wants the show to return in some form because it had high ratings. The apparent solution is to create a new show focused on the daughter character "Darlene," which would exclude Roseanne. Unfortunately, Roseanne Barr owns a chunk of the show, and ABC doesn´t want to be seen letting Barr profit from it, so ABC is in talks to buy the show from Barr so she would not technically profit

The Justice Department’s tepid OIG report, with its risible assertion that there was no political bias in the FBI’s Clinton email probe, suggests that it was written by people afraid to tell the unvarnished truth about the conduct of the federal government’s police apparatus, an agency that openly defies congressional oversight and has participated in a vendetta against a sitting president. The FBI’s leadership clearly hopes that the Democrats will win majorities in Congress and put a halt to the investigations into its multifarious abuses of power. The OIG is loath to face the ruthless reprisals that would inevitably follow

FBI Director Wray has said nothing to reassure Americans that he understands the serious corruption highlighted in the IG report. The FBI´s cover-ups and stonewalling on Wray´s watch add to his credibility problems. Both in is his press conference after the IG report was released, and in his testimony Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Director Wray demonstrated he was more concerned about protecting the reputation of the institution of the FBI than about the astonishing corruption of top FBI officials detailed in the IG report. During today’s hearing we heard about FBI agents who aren’t corrupt and how the Clinton email

Melania Trump´s approval rating is down six points after she spent a month out of the public eye following her kidney procedure, a new poll revealed. A new CNN poll shows 51 percent of Americans approve of the first lady, down from 57 percent in a poll conducted last month. Her unfavorable rating is at 29 percent, up from 27 percent last month. The survey was conducted from June 14-17, one month after Melania Trump had her kidney procedure at Walter Reed Military Medical Center, which took place on May 14 and kept her out of sight for 25 days.

Starbucks shares fell as much as 3% in after-hours trading Tuesday after the coffeehouse chain provided a weak sales forecast for its upcoming quarter and said it would shutter 150 stores in fiscal 2019. The Seattle-based company said it would close underperforming stores in “densely penetrated markets” and slow its rate of store growth. Starbucks said it traditionally closes about 50 underperforming locations annually. Starbucks said it expects same-store sales to grow 1% in its third fiscal quarter of 2017. Analysts had expected same-store sales to grow 3% in that period. “While certain demand headwinds are transitory, and some of

King said “We arrived yesterday afternoon. We went straight to the facility, the location where kids and their parents were reunited. All I can say after talking to the people, watching the people, listening to the people, that the Statue of Liberty I think is weeping right now. It’s unbelievable the stories we’ve heard.” She added, “We’re standing in front of a converted warehouse. This is
