Why is the GOP Senate Abetting Fascist Schumer’s Sabotaging Trump’s DOJ Appointments?

SCHUMER SUCCEEDS IN OBSTRUCTING KEY DOJ NOMINEES

by Paul Mirengoff  at PowerLine:

The Washington Post reports that “nearly a year into President Trump’s administration, the Justice Department lacks Senate-confirmed appointees in leadership posts running the national security, criminal, civil rights and other key divisions.” “The problem shows no sign of abating anytime soon,” the Post adds.

The Post is correct. Not only are key leadership posts vacant, but it now appears they will remain vacant until at least the Spring.

Moreover, this creates a serious problem. William Barr, a former Attorney General told the Post that “anyone who has worked in an administration knows how damaging it is” not to have key leadership positions filled.

As the Post’s Matt Zapotosky notes, Republicans control the Senate. So why are these nominations languishing?

The primary reason is obstruction by Senate Democrats. They have used procedural tactics to delay the confirmation of President Trump’s nominees. Chuck Schumer admitted as much to the Post, defending his obstruction by pointing to “substantive concerns,” as if Republicans had no substantive concerns with Obama nominees who were confirmed more swiftly.

Schumer says there is no department that needs more scrutiny than the DOJ. Arguably. But when a nominee who name the president put forward many months ago has received a hearing and a committee vote, the Democrats have had a full opportunity scrutinize him.

Yet, a number of such nominees apparently are months away from confirmation. Why? As I understand it, the reason is because Majority Leader McConnell agreed with Schumer that nominees who cleared committee, without Democratic support must be voted out of committee again — surely, a pointless exercise. Since Democrats declined to vote for most of President Trump’s key DOJ nominees when they were approved by he Senate Judiciary Committee, this means more delay.

Schumer told the Post “there is bipartisan opposition to many of the nominees due to the lack of independence that many of the nominees and appointees have demonstrated.” Rubbish. Most of these nominees cleared committee on a straight party line vote. These nominees are being held up not because of “bipartisan opposition,” but because Schumer has succeeded in stalling the process.

Meanwhile, Chai Feldblum, the main architect of President Obama’s radical LGBT policy, apparently is on the fast track to confirmation for a third term as EEOC commissioner. Naturally, she encountered no Democratic opposition and, I gather, no Republican on the Health Education, Labor & Pensions Committee has opposed her, either.

Thus, as I understand it, Feldblum’s nomination can proceed to the Senate floor without delay. Indeed, she is sufficiently confident about her prospects for prompt confirmation to have removed the obligatory picture of President Trump from her office.

It seems inconceivable that, with a Republican in the White House and a GOP majority in the Senate, a left-wing LBGT activist could be sailing towards confirmation as EEOC commissioner, while a host of Republican nominees to vital positions at the DOJ are cooling their heels, waiting to get through committee a second time with no full Senate vote in sight. Yet, that appears to be the situation.

Chuck Schumer is earning his pay. Senate Republicans, not so much.

The PIRANHA, MICHAEL WOLFF

Michael Wolff, From Local Media Scourge to National Newsmaker

by Michael M. Grynbaum  at the New York Times:

“Michael Wolff has, for years, been a prime piranha in the Manhattan media pond, using his caustic columns to tear into his lunchmates at Michael’s, the Midtown mogul canteen, and cutting a memorable figure at star-speckled dinner parties, clad in Charvet ties and shirts by the London haberdashery Browns.

His arsenic-laced prose was well known among powerful figures like Rupert Murdoch, whose life Mr. Wolff chronicled in a 2008 biography that left its subject displeased. But his nose for first-class gossip kept the machers circling.

Now, the Wolff formula has been applied to a far bigger canvas: presidential politics. It is proving to be his most successful provocation to date.

“Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” his insider account of the year he spent reporting from the West Wing, has drawn denunciations from the White House lectern, threatened the career of the Breitbart News leader Stephen K. Bannon and turned Mr. Wolff, an overnight sensation at age 64, into one of the world’s most famous journalists.

On Thursday, Mr. Trump’s lawyers threatened to sue Mr. Wolff’s publisher, Henry Holt, if it did not halt the book’s release and apologize for its contents — an extraordinary attempt by a sitting president to stifle critical coverage. Henry Holt responded by moving up the book’s release by four days. Mr. Wolff may be looking at his first No. 1 best seller.

 

Even for the brazenly confident Mr. Wolff, a status-mad needler with a habit of being ejected from expensive restaurants, this is a new level of notoriety. He is accustomed to angering the Manhattan power elite, not the leader of the free world. “It’s almost a natural evolution of Michael Wolff, that one day the president would be talking about him from the White House,” said Janice Min, the former editor of The Hollywood Reporter, where Mr. Wolff is a columnist.

His acidic portrayal of Mr. Trump as a president in over his head, disdained by aides who are astounded by his lack of fitness for the job, has dominated headlines and social media for days, along with his purportedly verbatim quotes from figures like Mr. Bannon and Mr. Murdoch dismissing Mr. Trump as a fool.

But Mr. Wolff has picked up as many foes as fans during his years as a slashing columnist — perhaps more, even — and critics have raised questions about the veracity of his reporting, saying that he has a history of being casual with his facts.

“Historically, one of the problems with Wolff’s omniscience is that while he may know all, he gets some of it wrong,” David Carr, the late New York Times media columnist, wrote in 2008, reviewing a Wolff book that, he pointed out, contained errors.

The excerpts from “Fire and Fury” that appeared this week have been raked over for mistakes. Mr. Wolff writes that CNN reported on Mr. Trump being accused of an exotic sexual practice with prostitutes in an intelligence dossier; in fact, BuzzFeed News reported those details. He also describes Mr. Trump as being unaware of the identity of John Boehner, the former Republican House speaker; in fact, the pair had golfed together long before Mr. Wolff began visiting the White House.

Other details have been disputed. Thomas Barrack Jr., a close Trump friend, denied that he said the president was “not only crazy, he’s stupid,” as Mr. Wolff reports. On Thursday, the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said the book contained “mistake, after mistake, after mistake.”

Mr. Wolff, who declined to be interviewed for this article, stands by his reporting. And his publisher is apparently undaunted by the president’s threats. “We see ‘Fire and Fury’ as an extraordinary contribution to our national discourse, and are proceeding with the publication of the book,” Henry Holt said in a statement on Thursday.

Mr. Bannon has not disputed his quotes in the book, even as the material has damaged him politically and perhaps professionally: Several Republican politicians have distanced themselves from him, and one of his key financial backers, the hedge fund heiress Rebekah Mercer, a funder of Breitbart, said on Thursday that she did not support his statements.

Ms. Min wrote on Twitter that she attended a dinner party that Mr. Wolff describes in detail, including a verbatim conversation between Mr. Bannon and Roger Ailes, the now-deceased former chairman of Fox News.

In a telephone interview on Thursday, she added, “People sometimes don’t like what he says, but I think one of the things that’s unnerving about Michael is he’s loyal only to the story.” Of her own collaborations with Mr. Wolff, she added, “nobody ever disputed the facts that were included on a piece.”

Raised in the New Jersey suburbs, the son of an advertising executive (his father) and a newspaper reporter (his mother), Mr. Wolff entered journalism early, as a copy boy for The New York Times. (He would later skewer The Times, along with other mainstream news organizations, as stolid and biased.) He has been a columnist and a media executive, writing a memoir about his time running a failed internet start-up, and once trying to purchase New York magazine with partners including Harvey Weinstein.

His friends say he relishes a scrap. Ms. Min recalled him grinning broadly after a party, telling her, “Everywhere I turned was someone who hated me.”

Sometimes, the spotlight has found Mr. Wolff, who became a running character on gossip websites and the city’s tabloids. His personal life caused a minor scandal after a late-life divorce, amid a relationship with a writer about 30 years his junior. (He and the writer, Victoria Floethe, now have a 2-year-old daughter.)

Mr. Wolff also became friendly with Mr. Trump, making a cameo in a pilot that never aired for a Trump-branded reality-TV project, “Trump Town Girls,” which involved beauty contestants selling real estate. After the election, he secured Mr. Trump’s trust, in part, by relentlessly criticizing other reporters’ coverage of the president-elect.

Soon, Mr. Wolff was spending days at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington, a block from the White House, where he was routinely spotted walking into the West Wing. He dined with Trump aides at the nearby Bombay Club. His book, he writes in an author’s note, is based on about 200 interviews, including at least one conversation with the president.

“Many of the accounts of what has happened in the Trump White House are in conflict with one another; many, in Trumpian fashion, are baldly untrue,” Mr. Wolff writes. “Those conflicts, and that looseness with the truth, if not with reality itself, are an elemental thread of this book.”

Graydon Carter, Mr. Wolff’s former editor at Vanity Fair, wrote in an email that he was not surprised Mr. Wolff “would write an entertaining book.”

“The mystery,” Mr. Carter added, “is why the White House allowed him in the door.”

The Fascism of today’s American Press

Fascism:  any movement, tendency, or ideology that favors dictatorial government, centralized control of private enterprise, repression of all opposition.

Accordingly, name one relatively  well read American  news publication that doesn’t hammer President Donald J. Trump nearly every issue!

The overwhelming majority of national “news” from  newspapers in America today is sold by college-crippled  leftist  professionals from  three fascistic national  American   Obamaling loving,  Soviet-like ‘journals’…… The New York Times, The Washington Post, and the Los Angeles Times.

Nearly all of major American television sources from coast to coast  also sell only  college-crippled, Obamaling loving, fascistic Soviet-like,   one Party politics whether news telling or “humor” whether news or for laughs.

Nearly all of our America’s educational institutions have also  become fascistic screamers and atheist preachers “religiously” selling leftism, antiAmericanism,  projecting their anti-truths to destroy the truths of  present and past.   In addition they  sell the arrival of twenty million foreigners, nearly all unlearned,  unskilled, to vote whether legal or not, to secure one Party  fascistic control of our already weakened and poorly educated America already owned in their Sanctuary Cities and Sanctuary California, Oregon, and Washington to be…. where the know-better Hillary  “Democrat” neoStalinists can dictate One Party  life at every  level “for the good of the country”.

Our courageous, bright, skilled problem solver, totally American, skilled  builder  President Donald J. Trump, has had to endure leftism’s   poison  and evil from  every Obamaling fascism’s corner in America, about 99% Democrat Party and 30 % Romney type Republican Party aristocrats who apparently  went to school or college to study  how they can best learn to hate honesty, forthrightness, courage,  and white males in four years or less.   Fasicism needs them!

 

AL GORE BELLOWS: GLOBAL WARMING CAUSING OUR HEMISPHERIC COLD

Craig Rucker, Director of the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow,  the major watchdog reporting on  the Al Gore man made global warming fraud claims  sent the following report:

Gore: Warming made it cold

Al Gore knew it all along.

Global warming would cause “bitter cold.”

Does anyone doubt for a second if the temperature was above average, Gore would claim that as proof of global warming as well?

The man has no shame.

CFACT’s Marc Morano has full details at Climate Depot.  His report is currently on Drudge!

Neither warm, nor cold days prove or disprove the theory of global warming.  They are weather, not climate.  What we do know for certain is that the climate computer models that predict global warming consistently project a warmer world than observations show. We also know that if the models were correct (they never have been), they reveal the solutions proposed by Gore and other warming campaigners to be ineffective, unfair and their benefits (if any) to not exceed their costs.

Marc Morano posted a “tweet” from climate scientist Roger Pielke, Sr. “For those who claim USA/Canada nor’easter is stronger because of ‘global warming’, they apparently do not realize that it’s so strong because of especially strong horizontal temperature gradient in troposphere. It ‘bombed’ because of usually cold air!”   Al Gore take note.

Marc reminds us in his report that scientists from team warming infamously predicted that snow would be a “thing of the past” by now.

You’d think if we are going to surrender our freedom and prosperity to these people, they’d get it right some time, wouldn’t you?……….

Glenn’s comment:   Outside of travels to discover Europe, Mexico, and our United States and my two years in military service, I, since birth, have lived in the north land here in Minnesota.   When in   third grade,  I did “by heart” and chalk, draw a map of the United States on teacher, Mrs. Jaeger’s blackboard, including the borders of all the states West of the Mississippi River.    I had already collected about 150 road maps from AAA, Texaco, Shell, Skelly,  Standard, Deep Rock, and more ‘filling stations’.   They were  free.   I still have them all.

It was the same year I learned that our Minnesota, once upon a time,  was covered deep….. under hundreds of feet of ice called “glaciers”.   I was told they came and went in three or four stages, the most recent sometime around 13,000 years ago.   It’s the cause why so much of  our left wing “goopher” land surface is covered with so much stone, including all those “uge” ones in and around our Duluth.

THANK GOD FOR GLOBAL WARMING!

When studying geology while in college sixty years ago,  I was  reminded that until that cataclysmic disaster when that a much  “uger” piece of rock fell from outer space   into our Gulf of Mexico  some 65,000,000 years ago, killing all of the dinosaurs, including Tyranosaurus Rex,  and nearly everything else roaming around the Dakotas and the rest of the world for millions of years.

I doubt crooked Hillary, her feminist allies  and other leftist cohorts celebrating their  21st century crime time know much about real glaciers….or the outdoors in general.   So many of them are law graduates where  fascists are trained.

Warning in Oslo (Last January, 2012)

US embassy: ‘Don’t walk alone in Oslo at night’

 
The United States embassy sent an email to US citizens in Oslo on Tuesday urging them to take extra care when out and about in the Norwegian capital after a spate of violent crimes in recent months.
The embassy made reference to a knife attack on a tram at Solli Plass on January 5th, two stabbing incidents at Oslo Central Station on January 10th, as well as a number of assaults in the city’s parks, particularly Slottsparken (The Palace Park), national broadcaster NRK reports.
Americans are advised by the embassy to observe five basic safety procedures, ”even in a generally safe country like Norway.”
1.    If possible, do not walk alone at night. If you are out late, arrange to walk with others or consider another form of transportation.
2.    Remain in well-lighted areas with heavy traffic.
3.    Be aware of your surroundings at all times; see potential threats before they become actual threats.
4.    Trust your instincts. If something seems wrong, get yourself out of the area.
5.    Keep your cell phone with you and charged to call for help if necessary. The police emergency number is 112, which you can dial from any land line or cell phone.
Norwegian media have reported extensively in recent months on an unprecedented number of attacks, especially rapes, in the city’s street and parks.
Scandinavian leftwing  governments over the last generation have destroyed the peace and quiet of these once safe and sound Scandinavian nations.    Its feminist laws,  immigration laws, tax laws its entitlements and atheism have created a  granny state unable to sustain the nation’s independence and civilized culture.
These granny state agents have condemned Norway to Islamic Shariah  voodooism and violence for its peoples’ future.
 (The above article was printed at this site, January 25, 2012.  I wonder how peaceful life is living in California these days.)

Netanyahu Speaks on Iran

NETANYAHU AND TRUMP SPEAK ON IRAN

by Scott Johnson at PowerLine:

According to NBC News, the most significant protests in eight years are rocking Iran, with state media reporting Tuesday that the death toll from clashes between demonstrators and security forces had reached at least 21. By contrast with the protests eight years ago, the protests that have swept across Iran seek the displacement of the murderous mullahcracy that took control in 1979.

The idiot cretins of the Obama administration counsel silence and mock President Trump’s expressions of support for the brave men and women in the streets expressing their hostility to the regime. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanuyahu speaks out with words of encouragement possessing a certain moral clarity lacking among Obama’s cretins.

The Iranian regime tries desperately to sow hate between Iranians and Israelis. They won’t succeed. When this regime finally falls – and one day it will – Iranians and Israelis will be great friends once again. I wish the Iranian people success in their noble quest for freedom.
