How To #RepealObamaCare? Declare War On GOP Liars! — Plus Sessions Sean Spicer Scaramucci

The GOP #RepealObamaCare battle is not a battle between moderates and conservatives. It is a battle between liars who voted to #RepealObamaCare when they knew Obama would veto such a law, and those who refuse to lie to the American people regarding #RepealObamaCare.

Likewise the resignation of Sean Spicer as a protest against the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci as Communications Director and the public rebuke of Attorney General Jeff Sessions by President Trump are attempts by President Trump to keep his campaign promises.

Further, the Spicer, Sessions, Scaramucci, news and moves are intricately tied to the #RepealObamaCare strategy of President Donald J. Trump.

Let’s look at the Jeff Sessions schlonging by President Trump first. We like Jeff Sessions and think he was an integral part of the President Trump election in 2016 as well as a bright hope for the present and future. But first and foremost Attorney General Jeff Sessions has to do his job.

President Trump appointed Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General. But all along, as Jeff Sessions explained to congress, he knew he had to recuse himself from any Russia investigation because, according to Jeff Sessions himself, the reason he recused himself from doing all of his job was because he was a campaign official for Trump2016:

“I have decided to recuse myself from any present or future investigations of any matter relating in any way to the campaign of the president of the United States,” Sessions told reporters at the Justice Department.

He added that his announcement “should not be interpreted as confirmation of the existence of any investigation.”

The attorney general said he made his decision about recusal after his staff recommended that he step away from any investigation related to the Trump campaign, since he had been involved in the campaign.

Those like us who like Attorney General Jeff Sessions need to understand that his reasons for recusal were well known to him, or should have been known, before he took the job of Attorney General:

“My staff recommended recusal,” he said. “They said that since I had involvement with the campaign, I should not be involved in any campaign investigation. I have studied the rules and considered their comments and evaluation. I believe those recommendations are right and just.”

In a statement following his remarks, Sessions noted that his recusal goes for “any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaign for president of the United States.”

President Trump was exactly correct when he chastised Sessions for the recusal:

Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president. How do you take a job and then recuse yourself?” Trump said.

Sessions said he promised at his confirmation that he would recuse himself if his “impartiality might reasonably be questioned.” He said he stepped back from the investigation because it probed a campaign he was involved with.

The Jeff Sessions recusal has ramifications beyond the Russia nonsense. We want a bunch of special prosecutors appointed, but Jeff Sessions’ recusal means we won’t get them unless he resigns. Right now we need a special prosecutor to investigate leaks coming from the Deep State and that includes the Justice Department. We need a special prosecutor to investigate the special prosecutor. But, recusal means no one getting that job done. Special Counsel Mueller must be put on a leash but because of recusal Mueller will do as he pleases and continue his witch hunt of the president.

Much that needs to be done by the Justice Department is not getting done because of Jeff Sessions’ recusal. Attorney General Sessions is doing fine on some issues but he is not fully engaged in pushing the Trump Agenda because Sessions recused himself from many issues that go back to campaign promises made by now President Trump. Between personal loyalties and people we like we will always choose to promote the agenda the American voters voted for. Jeff Sessions (and Deputy Rosenstein) need to consider removing themselves and sparing the president the task.

President Donald J. Trump wants the Justice Department to move rapidly to implement his agenda and that is why he built a fire under Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The AG must either build a fire to get his department moving forward or he will burn.

As to the Sean Spicer resignation and the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci this too is President Donald J. Trump demanding action by taking action. Spicer wanted the job and left when Scaramucci got the job. Those who recall the presidential campaign will recall that President Trump will chop heads when heads need to be chopped. That’s why the President has also reorganized his legal team which now consists of Ty Cobb, Jay Sekulow, and John Dowd.

Recall the last time Anthony Scaramucci was in the headlines. CNN made accusations against him. Scaramucci threatened CNN with lawsuits. CNN ran from the fight and fired top propagandists from the network. In brief, Scaramucci fights tough and President Trump wants fighters:

Three CNN staffers have resigned following the publication and subsequent retraction of a story linking a Trump transition team member to the Russia-related investigations.

Big Media won’t understand any of this. What we see is President Trump ready, willing, and able to fight. And that’s how you win the battle to #RepealObamaCare.

How to win the #RepealObamaCare fight? Um, fight, declare war!

President Donald J. Trump will rally his supporters in Ohio this week. This is a way to force Ohio Senator Portman to vote to #RepealObamaCare now, in the same way Portman voted in 2015 (when he knew Obama would veto) to #RepealObamaCare:

Senator Portman is a liar if he does not vote in 2017, like he did in 2015, to #RepealObamaCare! That’s the message President Trump, Scaramucci and his team, must push forward.

President Donald J. Trump should go to Nevada and West Virginia to campaign to #RepealObamaCare and against the liar senators from those states. Those two senators are liars that need to be called out. President Trump can be particularly effective in both states. In Nevada, Senator Heller is up for election this year. Senator Heller can be called a “liar” if he votes to not #RepealObamaCare. Senator Heller should also be primaried and defeated.

President Donald J. Trump has already made the threat against go to Hell Heller:

Liar Heller of Nevada was for #RepealObamaCare before he was against it:

Expose liar Dean Heller and send him to electoral Hell, Mr. President.

Senator Lisa Murkowski is a liar too:

Senator Capito is up for election when President Trump is up for reelection in 2020. Senator Capito must also be made to realize that she represents a state that voted by over 40 points for President Trump. President Trump should go to West Virginia and call Senator Capito a liar because she ran for election to #RepealObamaCare, but now is against #RepealObamaCare:

Run liar Capito’s ads against ObamaCare against her in West Virginia Mr. President. Senator Capito is a liar!

At the same meeting in which President Trump reminded Dean Heller about next year’s election, President Trump also discussed the illegal Barack Obama subsides for ObamaCare. President Trump has thus far not pulled the pin on this grenade but he has that weapon as a Trump card. Any Senator that does not vote to #RepealObamaCare must be held to account and the President can blame them for the collapse of illegal ObamaCare subsidies. We’ve written about the illegal ObamaCare subsidies before and cited news reports to explain this grenade:

House Republicans also sued and won an initial ruling over the Obama administration’s payments to subsidize health care costs such as co-pays and deductibles for Obamacare enrollees under a certain income level. A federal court agreed the funds were illegally appropriated; the Obama administration appealed that decision. But Trump could discontinue the appeal, and hold that over Democrats in negotiations to replace the law: If he chooses to discontinue those payments, health insurers — which would be on the hook for those payments even if the government funding dried up — would probably flee the markets or jack up prices next year. Millions of ACA customers would likely see their premiums spike and their plans become unaffordable.

“If Trump were to stop the cost-sharing payments, he could send the individual insurance markets into an immediate tailspin,” says Bagley. “It would be an extraordinary hit.”

President Donald J. Trump has a lot of grenades to throw at liars such as Heller and Capito and a lot of Trump cards up his sleeve. If President Trump wants to destroy ObamaCare all he has to do is implement ObamaCare as written and blame the Obama Dimocrats and GOP senators who refuse to #RepealObamaCare.

President Donald J. Trump should also warn the country about government control of healthcare. All President Trump has to do is retell the saga of Charlie Gard and the British run healthcare dictatorship that refuses the parents of Charlie Gard from taking their child for medical treatment at their expense outside of Britain’s dictatorial hospital establishment.

President Trump cannot be expected to do it all. Reinforcements are coming:

Conservative group warns of primaries for those who don’t back ObamaCare repeal

A top conservative group is threatening primary challenges to senators who vote against a repeal of ObamaCare after Senate Republicans failed to coalesce around a replacement plan.

Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who now serves as the president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, drew the line in the sand on Tuesday, soon after reports surfaced that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to hold a repeal vote even though it’s already clear he doesn’t have the votes to pass it.

“Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare for years and now with President Trump in the White House, there is no excuse for them to break their promise,” Cuccinelli said.

“Working with the grassroots across the country, we will seek to identify, recruit, and fund conservative challengers against Republican senators who vote against repeal. If they won’t keep their word and if they can’t find the courage to repeal a liberal takeover of our health care system that has hurt so many American families, they should be replaced by someone who will.”

Any and all Republicans who have lied to the American people about their willingness to #RepealObamaCare must be held to account.

    Mulvaney to Insurers on Trump Plans If Health Bill Fails: ‘You Probably Won’t Like It That Much’

    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told attendees of a Bloomberg Government dinner on Tuesday night that a long-term commitment from the Trump administration to continue key health care subsidies for insurers is unlikely, a source with firsthand knowledge of Mulvaney’s remarks told Independent Journal Review.

    At the event, a Blue Cross Blue Shield employee asked Mulvaney whether the White House has given any thought to what comes next for health care if the Senate fails to pass an Obamacare repeal next week as expected.

    “My guess is you probably won’t like it that much,” Mulvaney said, adding that the White House has been evaluating options.

    “We are looking at the cost-sharing payments on a month-to-month basis. We made them today. We’ll make them tomorrow. But I don’t think we’ll see a long-term commitment from this administration,” Mulvaney explained.

    Cost Sharing Reduction, or CSR, subsidies were implemented by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) to help low-income Americans pay for care. The payments, going to insurance companies to offset out-of-pocket cost reductions for households that fall between 100 percent and 250 percent of the federal poverty level, amounted to $7 billion last year.

    Republicans have long opposed the program, suing the Obama administration in 2014 in an attempt to prevent CSR payments. House Republicans moved to end CSR subsidies in their health care legislative effort, but support for the bill collapsed in the Senate.

    The White House has threatened to cut off the subsidies in the past, giving insurers some anxiety about the future of the program. Ending CSR payments would likely lead to price hikes and market instability.

    Blue Cross Blue Shield and other insurers have been outspoken about their desire for more certainty on the issue, with some even pulling out of ACA exchanges in states like Ohio and Kansas as a consequence this spring.

    Despite the pushback, Republicans aren’t ruling out the possibility.

    “I’m not interested in a bailout for insurance companies alone without reforms,” Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) told HuffPost this week.

    For now, President Donald Trump has the ability to end the payments at any time and, in his words, “let Obamacare fail.” Thursday is the deadline for the next monthly CSR payment.

    I mean, at some point, if you really do believe philosophically that [Obamacare] is going to fail, why throw the money out the bag?” Mulvaney told dinner attendees. “Why have it fail in two years as opposed to having it fail in six months?”

    Mulvaney emphasized a decision hasn’t been made yet, and he said it continues to be a difficult conversation within the White House.

    “I wish I could be more optimistic, but it’s not a very optimistic time for health care,” Mulvaney said.

  2. Jeff Sessions…yes , I like him BUT

    Jeff Sessions allowed this whole Mueller ‘can of worms’ to open up and now PDT is under constant assault & widening investigation and nonstop news stories…Sessions should have had the power & strength to prevent that…

    he did not…he failed…he gave up and compromised his power…imo…Sessions has been too timid…as if he is doing his job as AG ‘over there’ somewhere…while the people out to get PDT grow stronger and invade his space like multiplying cockroaches…

    Sessions has done nothing…nothing to assist PDT in this vein…he is a passive stand by…


    imo…Mooch, or Anthony Scaramucci is just what our team and PDT needs…someone on twitter called him an “Italian pitbull”

    I would rephrase and perhaps say “an Italian pitbull with velvet gloves”

    I love his loyalty, his undeniable strong support for PDT and his soft/quiet charm that he uses to get his message across…and make no mistake this is PDT’s wingman to get the message out ‘that we are winning and making America great again’…how refreshing…

    …it is time to put Trump people in the WH and definitely in the Communications Dept…I think people will now know who the Communications Director is …does anyone even remember the name of the Communications Director who resigned a few weeks ago!


    anyone hear anything that Chris Wallace or Charlie Gasparino had to say today…what weasals…

  3. Sessions has done nothing…nothing to assist PDT in this vein…he is a passive stand by…
    Yep. Some of us called this the day he recused himself.

    A good man, but not a fighter. NEXT.

  4. S, Gasparino and Wallace have been 100% wrong on Trump since June 2015 at least.

    As for Sessions if he does not begin to agitate for a special counsel to stop all the leaks and instigate investigations such as why the DNC did not provide the FBI access to their computers, he will be a goner. The #2, Rosenstein should go too. That would mean Rachel Brand, a Trump supporter would be in charge.

    One last point, Sean Spicer is on Hannity tonight and in the tape thus far released of the interview Spicer says he wanted to give Scaramucci a clean slate on communications.

  5. Yes I think the do nothing Senate could muster 67 votes today, all Dems and a lot of Rinos in there

    The police chief was fired as a scapegoat. Fellow traveler and radical ideologue police woman was on a “no contact” extended vacation and couldn’t (she says) be contacted. She drags her ass back and says this Aussie didn’t HAVE to die as collateral damage (yes she did if they are going to create a United Nations of incompetents to subdue the native upper middle class population who pays the bills) before she was heading back on vacation Saturday. Barney Fife of Somalia is not cooperating (he doesn’t have to do so) but is still on the payroll (he does have to cooperate with Internal Affairs if he wants his paycheck) but the police lady was letting that slide too to the dismay of her PD.

    The mayor seemed genuinely puzzled then upset that African Americans were yelling at her. An affirmative action Hispanic shoots a black guy last year. Now a Somalian refugee special assimilation program ninny shoots and kills a white lady. But aren’t all minorities the same? Why aren’t the AA’s thrilled with the minority hiring of the Minneapolis PD? Maybe they don’t like being bullied and murdered by idiots. And see that firing one “special category” hire police chief just to be replaced by another one is not going to solve anything. The land of progressive ideology politics is seeing “cause and effect” up close. They took the “refugee” money and virtue signaling kudos now they got to pay the piper.

  7. Maybe, just maybe, this latest leak smearing Jeff Sessions will light a fire under his ass. I know he is surrounded by traitors in the DOJ but really. Signit leaks by intelligence creeps is very serious stuff. What is that moron NSA Rogers doing about this? Where is the perp walk? And Sen Richard Burr of NC and the intelligence committee dissing his counterpart in the House Nunes needs his ass kicked. I guess Burr feels emboldened since everyone with any sense knows that old crook McCain isn’t coming back (the very nature of this kind of brain tumor is metastasization and he is 80) and the race is on for chief of GOPe after the pathetic “fight cancer” talk. It is his brain. Are they just going to gurney him in with a chemo IV? And Jeff fire that doof Rosenstein. His “honorable man” schtick is bull because he was the protege right after law school of Mueller. Fire him or make him recuse too. And keep him off television. As a theorist and researcher Sessions is the best. But he needs a whip and chains at the DOJ. Pretend you are dealing with the Klan in Alabama Jeff and go get them.

  8. It is strange perhaps that the very people who obsess over russian hacking are adamantly opposed to voter identification requirements. If their professed concern over election fraud were for real then they would be consistent. The fact they are not should tell us this is merely a pretext, and the obsession over Russian hacking is motivated by an intense desire to hide their dirty laundry.

    It’s curious, isn’t it, that the result of the supposed election tampering was to provide the public with additional information – information that’s authenticity has, apparently, never been challenged.

    Someone please stop those pesky Ruskies before they further inform the American public about their potential leaders!

    Where are you
    Moving Gonzo. Moving.

    I was born and raised in Seattle.

    I loved the city.

    By now it has become a high tech center. Also a center for the homeless.

    And the hordes descending on the city like locusts, at the behest of Bezos are changing it into something I do not like–politically, culturally, economically.

    There is a saying about these newcomers: dead from the neck down.

    My reaction is widely held by native Seattlelites of a certain age, as we witness the rise of density, urban blight, sanctuary cities and, lest we forget pedophile mayors.

    Native Seattlelites all complain about it, and increasingly they are doing something about it. They are moving away to saner venues with a lower cost of living.

    As a result, I will be more MIA than usual during the next few months.

  11. Foxy, when I saw they are commissioning a vessel named the Gerald Ford, who played football at Michigan with his helmet off, and had a bad habit of shanking his drive on the first hole in celebrity tournaments to the detriment of the gallery, I thought of those poor sailors ordered to man that vessel, and then I thought of something I have not thought about for years. On the other hand, they could have chosen the USS Benedict Arnold, which would have been marginally worse.

    What do you think about this? 😡,
    I think it’s horseshit.

    Trump can, and should, fire Mueller, then DARE Congress to impeach him.

    Trump just replaced Spicer with a SCAR(Y)*amucci
    Trump needs to pull a page out of Obama’s play book and not direct his tweets to nonsense spin.

    Admin’s post is good advise- keep your head down on the peoples business and let others do the fighting,,,
    Apparently, Mueller et al have nothing in the way of ‘real’ evidence so they are just Blowing Bubbles in the air for effect… So, Scary*, in a daily briefing could casually name drop the “collusion collectives” tortured past relationships with the Clinton/Obama Cartel as mentioned above and start the ball rolling.

    Agreed- Trump should use the same approach used on blogs in his Tweets. Never respond to a trolls accusations, instead. throw Hammers and Ridicule at them in your response. With the new hires and doesn’t need to fight back by himself…
    Scary and Gorka can be pointing out the Collusion between Hillary, Comey and MUELLER, noting that
    the collective ‘they’ have had more covert deals with foreign governments than you can shake a stick at.- which in essence, is the way the Democrats do business to enrich themselves at the expense of American taxpayers. And, therefore, Mueller, is unqualified to be an Honest broker for
    any investigation into Trump’s business and should have recused himself before he even took the job.

    Hopefully, Sessions has honored his own rule of ethical honesty w/Trump and told him everything relating to the Russian imbroglio and there will be no surprises forthcoming.

  14. Healthcare turns totalitarian:

    Charlie Gard’s mom storms out of court, dad mouths ‘evil’ as new MRI scans revealed

    The mother of critically ill baby Charlie Gard stormed out of a British court on Friday and the boy’s father angrily turned towards a hospital lawyer and mouthed the word “evil” after a new set of hospital scans were read in the controversial case, Sky News reported.

    Charlie’s parents, Chris Gard and Connie Yates, had apparently not seen the newest MRI scan of their 11-month-old child, who suffers from mitochondrial depletion syndrome, and the Great Ormond Street Hospital lawyer said the documents made for “sad reading.”

    I’m very sorry. I didn’t mean to cause distress,” Barrister Katie Gollop said.

    The contentious court proceedings came as Charlie’s parents continued their desperate battle to bring the baby to the United States for an experimental treatment. American doctors have agreed to treat Charlie but, so far, the Great Ormond doctors have objected to letting him go, believing his condition to be irreversible.

    His parents, however, believe the experimental treatment, which has never been tested on a human with Charlie’s exact condition, could restore the child’s muscular and brain functions.

    Judge Nicholas Francis said Charlie’s parents can present new evidence in a new round of hearings early next week. He said the evidence must be new and relevant to the case. American neurology expert Dr. Michio Hirano, who designed the experimental treatment in question, will also be allowed to present more evidence in court on Monday.

    Friday’s court proceeding came as Gard and Yates released a new photo this week that they say proves the 11-month-old is not blind, as doctors claim.

    The photo showed Charlie hooked up to a life support machine in his hospital bed with his eyes open and a toy being held in front of him.

    The parents said they shared the picture to dispute doctors’ claims that Charlie cannot see, the Mirror UK reported.

    It’s not clear how much longer Charlie would live without the treatment.

    The parents have received support from Pope Francis and President Trump, as well as some members of the U.S. Congress.

    The courts with all the coercive power of the state are massed against the parents and this child. We doubt very much that the baby has much of a future under the best of circumstances but the parents should be in charge not the courts. The parents in this case are trying to help their son. They are good parents. The courts should only intervene if the parents were negligent or “bad”.

    That these parents in this well publicized case still cannot take care of their child is a warning to those who remain adamant on state control of healthcare. President Trump should point this out in public speeches.

  15. Get your ass in gear Jeff Sessions. Stop the leaks or resign:

  16. Well he tried to be nice!! 😀
    Now get ready for the street fighter to come out.

  17. Admin- feeling a wee bit better yesterday and today.
    happy to read YOU are on the job imparting your good advice to Trump to keep his head down and just work for the people.

    If anything. Trump should use Gorka’s as an asset and valuable resource to his benefit…

    Here is an example of his masterful handling of media minions:

    Interview with Hannity- fun watching Gorka correct the ‘readers’ promulgating false news/

  18. The Big Media poll ignored by Big Media:

    Reuters published a story on Thursday about a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll with this blazing headline: “One in eight people who voted for Trump having second thoughts.”

    “About one in eight people who voted for President Donald Trump said they are not sure they would do so again after witnessing Trump’s tumultuous first six months in office, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll of 2016 voters,” Reuters began its report, adding its own left wing bias of interpretation [emphasis added].

    A detailed analysis of this latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, however, shows that the data within the poll does not really support either the headline of the story or the misleading first sentence.

    The headline says one in eight Trump voters are “having second thoughts,” which implies they would now vote against Trump.

    The more accurate headline, based on the actual Reuters/Ipsos Poll results would be this: “One in twenty people who voted for Trump would not vote for him again, a significant improvement from one in eight back in May.” (One in twenty is five percent. One in eight is 12 percent.)

    The associated detailed data analysis provided by the Reuters/Ipsos poll proclaims that “cracks emerge in Trump’s base.”

    But the actual data within the poll shows that Trump’s standing with his base actually improved during the past two months.

    The Reuters’ story is based on the answers to one question taken in the Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted of 2016 Trump voters in July. Reuters/Ipsos asked the same question of 2016 Trump voters in a poll in May, and Trump’s standing among those voters during the two months period improved by six percent.

    In May, 82 percent of Trump voters said they would vote for him again. In July, that number jumped to 88 percent.

    In the July poll, of the remaining 12 percent of 2016 Trump voters, only five percent, however, said they would either vote for others over Trump (Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein), or would not vote at all. Seven percent said they did not know.

    Here’s a detailed breakdown of the poll question and the responses from the both the May and July polls: [snip]

    In July, here’s what Trump voters said:

    88 percent would vote for Trump again
    1 percent would not vote
    7 percent don’t know
    4 percent would vote for others (Hillary Clinton, Gary Johnson, or Jill Stein) [snip]

    Reuters is the same organization that predicted on November 7, 2016, “With hours to go before Americans vote, Democrat Hillary Clinton has about a 90 percent chance of defeating Republican Donald Trump in the race for the White House, according to the final Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project.”

    The goal of Big Media is to separate President Trump from Trump supporters/voters. Only then can Big Media demand the GOP establishment run away from PDT.

  19. Wbboei, Pat Buchanan knows Big Media is the enemy. Lots of good stuff from Friday’s Tucker Carlson show:

    Like us, Buchanan sees Mueller as a big danger. Conservative Treehouse should watch this interview and wake up from their foolishness of defending Mueller.

  20. Ben Stein agrees with us and Pat Buchanan:

    Thursday on the Fox Business Network, former Nixon and Ford speechwriter, actor and author Ben Stein said special counsel Robert Mueller wanted to “kill the political career and maybe take away the freedom” of President Donald Trump.

    Stein said, “I think he wants Jeff Sessions to resign I think he wants him to be gone, and I think he wants to then fire the special prosecutor. Look, he has got a whole bunch of buzzards and other carrion animals looking over his shoulder. They want to kill him. I mean, Mr. Muller. I’m sure he’s a fine human being in many ways, but he’s got that job because he wants to kill the political career and maybe take away the freedom of President Trump. He’s not there for any other reason. Nobody takes that job then hires 20 or 30 high-level Democrat prosecutors, unless he’s out to get the president. He’s going to get rid of him eventually. He’s going to have to get rid of Sessions. The whole idea of having a special prosecutor this early when there’s no crime, nothing bad has happened.”

    He continued, “Muller has behaved in an extremely unprofessional way by having a deck stacked with so many left-wing Democrats and big time Hillary contributors. That is not the way to run an impartial probe. And there shouldn’t be a special prosecutor in the first place.”

    He added, “It’s too broad a mandate. It basically gives him a license to hunt and kill — not literally kill, but hunt and kill politically President Trump.”

    CTH better wake up and smell the Mueller.

  21. Hillary supporters who gave money to Jill Stein for those ludicrous recounts will not be happy:

    “ludicrous Russia conspiracy theories”

  22. Welcome back Wbb !

    Sessions is too busy taking people’s property away to focus on WTF he really should be doing, and I think at this point, he and Trump have too many issues.

    I also think he has this vision of otherworldliness of the position he is in.

    Who would have thought…not me…

  23. Jacob Reese Mogg notes in passing that even though politics is a serious business, it does produce its moments of levity.

    I can think of no better example than the excerpt below which begins at 28:50. Bug eyed Adam Shiff and Eric Swalwell have called Roger Stone to a hearing, to accuse him of conspiring with Russia to hack the DNC, but rejected his plea that it be a public hearing, so he could expose them and instead forced him to testify by a written statement, rather than live. Roger takes a dim view of this restriction, and he gets rather passionate about it, calling Shiff a light weight and a coward, and Swalwell Pelosi’s bitch. They could sue him for those remarks, but truth is an absolute defense. . A wonderful moment of levity starting at 28.50-30.50.

  24. Sessions is too busy taking people’s property away to focus on WTF he really should be doing, and I think at this point, he and Trump have too many issues.
    Yep. Watched Trump’s non-interview interview with the NYT.

    Trump basically raked Sessions over the coals. It was brutal.

    I’ve been in the business world all my life. This is how a manager forces a subordinate to resign.

    Trump is begging Sessions to resign. To me, it’s crystal clear.

    Why doesn’t Trump simply fire Sessions? He could, but it’s unprecedented.

    He will, if Sessions continues to be bull-headed about it.

    Trump has to fire Mueller, and to do that, he needs to fire Rosenstein, and to do that, he needs Sessions out of the way.

    As admin remarked in a post a few months ago, Trump is getting his chess pieces into position.

  25. Well the Dimocrats finally seem to have found something to do that could actually benefit the country.

    Democrats Urge Antitrust Action Against Amazon Over Whole Foods Deal

    In the wake of their embarrassing electoral defeat in November, Congressional Democrats are turning against the wealthy tech benefactors who bankroll their campaigns. To wit, a group of 12 Democratic Congressman have signed a letter urging the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission to conduct a more in-depth review of e-commerce giant Inc.’s plan to buy grocer Whole Foods Market Inc., according to Reuters.

  26. “Anthony says the leakers will be found and FIRED.”

    Fired? Not good enough. They need to be prosecuted and jailed if they leaked any classified information (a felony). That ‘s the only deterrent.

    And fire Sessions and Rosenstein if they refuse to prosecute.

    “This week was supposed to be ‘Made in America Week’ and we were talking about Attorney General Jeff Sessions,” Dent grumbled in a telephone interview Thursday, citing White House messaging campaigns that were overshadowed by the controversies.”

    The GOPe lost control when Low Energy Bush sank and tanked. Being dim bulb National Chamber of Commerce types and already bought they thought they could go on their merry open border and globalism way. They should have taken the rather large hint last week of Trump entertaining possible primary challengers in 2018 to that parasitic tick named Jeff Flake (and perfectly timed when his mentor and co-conspirator McCain is circling the drain). The realignment and hostile takeover is done. Next step is firings and lost primaries with lots of warnings. Scaramucci is there in a ten grand bespoke suit to “make” them understand.

  28. Scaramucci is there in a ten grand bespoke suit to “make” them understand.

    Scaramuchi is three things.

    Polished, focused, and lethal.

    Wouldn’t it be grand to see him square of

    Against the dims pre eminent attack dog Frankel.

    Whose face reminds me of a shar-pei dog.

    Big media describes his fumbling questioning as a grilling.

    To cover up the fact that he is the best they have got

    And still he is dumber than owl shit.

  29. Ryan is actually worse than Boehner. Total RINO and definitely not helping POTUS. Mcconell may be worse.

  30. lol AMDWaters retweeted a couple of my tweets, and my subscriptions literally doubled overnight! How cool!

  31. Thank, Foxy, for the kind words…

    Just wondering, if Sessions with his perpetual ‘deer in the headlights’ look; if his family has been threatened if he dares pursue the Clinton Cartel.
    Otherwise, I can’t understand his behavior when it’s his job to do so as the USAG.

  32. Two things are obvious:

    First, Mueller was part of the conspiracy to politicize the FBI. Therefore, the reason he has hired all these left wing ideologues to investigate Trump is to cover up a surgical examination of the FBI, which would reveal the extent to which Mueller and others violated the civil rights of American citizens and laid waste to the Constitution. Mueller is a hero to the elites, and a traitor to the country.

    Second, I do not think Trump should fire Mueller. That would play into the enemies hands, and they would invoke the Saturday Night Massacre, suggested by Professor Turley. Instead, he should do what Andy McCarthy suggests and tell the Pandora Rosenstein, who opened the box in the first place, to take note of the leaks and side information that Mueller is sua sponte (on his own motion and with no leave from the Administration) expanded the scope of his investigation from Russian collusion to Trump’s prior business dealing, and severely limit the scope of Mueller’s investigation.

  33. People who tweet –

    I see some people’s profiles say if you put them on a list, they will block you. What is a list and is it somehow bad?

    Also – the unspoken rule seems to be if someone follows you, you should follow them back. But then how would you ever have the time to read all the tweets you get?

  34. Dick Morris weighs in with his take on the latest rumor:

    Replace Sessions With Rudy Giuliani
    By Dick Morris on July 24, 2017

    Jeff Sessions, in recusing himself from the two key matters before his office: The phony Russia investigation and the issues surrounding the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s conduct as Secretary of State, has effectively left his post, AWOL. He cannot act in either of these key investigations because he has recused himself — recusals which are tantamount to resignation.

    Trump should ratify what Sessions has done by replacing him entirely as Attorney General and bringing on someone who will vigorously defend him on the issues of Russia and will play offense in investigating “corrupt Hillary” and the leaks from Mueller and the intel community.

    He should name Rudy Giuliani as the new Attorney General.

    Rudy is only 73 (Sessions is 71). A national hero, his actions would have great credibility and he would out duel Mueller in a public contest.

    The new Attorney General should:

    • Investigate the leaks that are proliferating from the prosecutor’s office

    • Demand that Mueller fire the newly hired members of his staff who have compromised their objectivity by having donated to either political party or any of the 2016 presidential candidates.

    • Insist that Mueller limit his investigation to only that conduct by Trump or his associates that is recent. He should not be allowed to act as a sort of appellate court to see if the electorate elected the right person president by rummaging through Trump’s 71 years to come up with something to hang on him.

    Sessions has neither the strength nor the ability — in light of his self-emasculating recusals — to act on this level.

    Trump needs and AG who will fight for him and battle the usurpations of the special prosecutor.

    And he needs one of sufficient prestige to be able to fire Mueller and assure that the public (or at least Trump’s half of it) sides with the Administration.

    Giuliani is his man.

    Rosenstein has a big problem. He appointed his mentor and crony Mueller. “After his clerkship, Rosenstein joined the U.S. Department of Justice through the Attorney General’s Honors Program. From 1990 to 1993, he prosecuted public corruption cases as a trial attorney with the Public Integrity Section of the Criminal Division, then led by Assistant Attorney General Robert Mueller.”

    The DC’ers just scratch each others backs all day long. Being imprinted like baby ducks by these old scoundrels maybe they can’t help it. While Rosenstein didn’t have a problem with canning Comey (he was never his boss) he does have a problem (fear of daddy/mentor?) with even supervising Mueller. Reputed to be a genius level lawyer of impeccable gravis, Rosenstein didn’t even write in any limits, time or otherwise, into the portfolio he handed to Mueller. This is simply stupid level even for your old crony boss.

    So while Sessions is struggling to get up to speed at DOJ, Rosenstein is either a patsy or a crony. Sessions would be well served to get rid of him whatever he is. After the hostile takeover, six to eight months afterward, the purge of incompetents, those not with the new program, suspected sabotuers, etc needs to be carried out. They had their chance and didn’t meet expectations or have a different agenda. Rosenstein needs to go now. Sessions will find his life much better if he does it and not just on the Mueller problem.

  36. “President Trump and his advisers are floating possible replacements for Attorney General Jeff Sessions – and the list includes Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), The Washington Post reports.”

    Why is Trump torturing old Lyin’ Ted? Would that rat Cruz take DOJ? Absolutely. He is up for re-election in 2018 and not looking forward to it. He is going to be primaried and enough people are mad at him in state for making a spectacle of himself in the primary last year to make it a very bumpy ride. Besides he is a non-entity in the Senate. More misdirection BS to drive the swamp rats crazy.

  37. I don’t like Trump doing this to Sessions in public. My guess is he tried to in private and was spurred.

    Sessions is a big reason Trimp is President, validated him in the beginning when he needed it and stuck with him.

    I am disappointed in Sessions. I know he is responsible for the Mueller witch hunt by recusing himself, but this is ugly and just plain sad.

    An honorable man in dishonorable times.

    I always wanted Rudy as AG, but he didn’t want it , I think he wanted SOS.

    Will he answer the call?

    Yes, Rosenstein needs to go. And there’s no way Sessions will ever fire him.

    So now we see why Trump is badgering Sessions to resign. Trump won’t have any problem whatsoever firing Rosenstein.

    Yeah. It’s unfortunate.

    This is one of the things I like about Trump. He always does what needs to be done, no matter how painful.

    He will do the same thing with North Korea. Talk about ugly and sad.

  40. part of me thinks PDT, in his direct and plain speaking way, is trying to light a fire under Sessions…

    really as has been stated by many of us, Sessions ‘relinquished’ a big source of his power before he even started his job…he went in with one arm tied behind his back and semi blindfolded…

    he left PDT wide open…and now look at what has happened…and to add insult to injury, the DOJ gave Mueller free reign to do whatever he wanted and use as much money as he needed in this witch hunt investigation…and we don’t even hear one word about the imbalance of the democratic prosecutors being used to go after PDT…from anyone…not to mention that traitor Paul Ryan…he has got to go…what a snake he turned out to be…sic Scaramucci on him…

    and what do we hear from the AG…nada, nothing, not a peep…reclusal, smusal…
    Sessions has been ineffective in his job…
    actually, he is less than half an AG…

    and as i mentioned before, it is like Sessions is doing his job as AG, seperate from his position and doing “it over there somewhere” totally emasculated…in some tomb of his own…disconnected from the admin…

    it really is a farce…a trap was set, Sessions fell in & now we have a farce in the DOJ…getting worse than when it was under the O admin…not better…
    there is no fighter fighting in the DOJ
    the left won this one…
    imo…Sessions seems very meek…and timid…and yes, I am sorry because he was loyal and is a good man…but maybe the admin can find something else for him…

    and frankly what’s Session’s deal with making the forfeiture laws stronger to support ‘law enforcement’ as he is pushing
    there are stories upon stores about how these forfeiture laws have been abused…they don’t even sound democratic…they take your belongings and money before you are even charged or found guilty and then you have to spend more money on lawyers to prove your innocence…and it can take years & ruin lives…
    WTH? not down with that at all…

  41. Actually, I just now realized that Trump should not humiliate Sessions into resigning.

    He should just ask for his resignation.

    Sessions is a good man, and many people (including, apparently, Giuliani) feel that he had no choice but to recuse himself.

    That doesn’t change the fact that Trump needs a fighting AG by his side right now, not one who’s MIA.

    It’s a tough situation, and nobody’s fault.

    Do the right thing, Mr. President. Stop humiliating Sessions. Be a man, and ask for his resignation.

  42. part of me thinks PDT, in his direct and plain speaking way, is trying to light a fire under Sessions…
    No. He’s trying to get him to quit.

    I’ve been in the business world all my life. This is how it’s done.

  43. yeah Matthew77…can’t really argue the point…
    Scaramucci says they need to get together and talk it out…bottom line, Sessions has not been in charge of his own turf…and still isn’t and isn’t doing anything to counter balance what is going on…

    He is off on his own doing whatever…MIA where and when needed

    …the thing about Guiliani…I would also love him in there but from what I remember there were some issues with him that were going to prove difficult for confirmation when he was seeking SOS

    maybe none of whatever it was would apply to AG…but Rudy would be much more of a pitbull as AG…

    whatever PDT does, he needs an aggressive pushback AG in place…

    enough is enough…

  44. part of me thinks PDT, in his direct and plain speaking way, is trying to light a fire under Sessions…
    No. He’s trying to get him to quit.

    I’ve been in the business world all my life. This is how it’s done.
    You’re absolutely correct that PDT is *saying publicly* that he’s just trying to light a fire under Sessions.

    In my experience, he’s just providing a cover story for his imminent firing of Sessions.

    When a manager talks about a subordinate that way in public, in my experience it’s too late.

    I’ve seen many of my colleagues fired in exactly that way.

    And yes, it has happened to me, too.
