Trump the Dealmaker Projects Bravado, but Behind the Scenes, Faces Rare Self-Doubt

In an object account from the left at the NYT, another heart breaker that the editorial staff had to let slide on through in an attempt to be fair and balanced.

Below the reader will see Nancy Pelosi at here worst, thus far calling Trump’s attempt to pass the Republican Health Care Plan a “Rookie Mistake.”

We will see who the rookie is Ms. Pelosi when the Republican health care plan in finally passed in spite of your obstruction and nonsensical remarks.

 

 

A president who prefers unilateral executive action and takes intense pride in his ability to cut deals finds himself in a humbling negotiation unlike any other in his career, pinned between moderates who believe the health care measure is too harsh, and a larger group of fiscal conservatives adept at using their leverage to scuttle big deals cut by other Republican leaders.

Over the years, Mr. Trump has proved to be a resilient operator, and even his most scathing critics do not rule out his ability to pull off some kind of a deal, even at a late hour.

“I don’t know whether he will ultimately succeed or fail, but I will tell you that President Trump is so transactional, who knows what transactions he will be willing to make to pass this,” said Representative Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader, who passed the Affordable Care Act in 2010 as speaker. (Pelosi knows the meaning of the word “Transactional?”

Yea, tell us Nancy, you have no idea what you are talking about, exactly when you pushed ObamaCare upon all Americans without a single Republican vote.

Pelosi still hasn’t read ObamaCare, and has no clue what’s in it.

Obamacare you will recall essentially bypassed the entire congress, made deals while dancing in the dark behind closed doors.

Now she is telling us that the Republican’s bill must be aired before the American people in congress.

Pelosi, needs a pistol whipping.

“So far he’s acting like a rookie. It’s really been amateur hour,” she added. “He seems to think that a charm offensive or a threat will work — that saying ‘I can do this for you’ or ‘I can do this against you’ will work. That’s not the way it works. You have to build real consensus, and you have to gain a real knowledge of the policy — and the president hasn’t done either of those things.”

Crashing on the shoals of Congress marks Mr. Trump’s first true encounter with legislative realities and the realization that a president’s power is less limitless than it seems, particularly in the face of an intransigent voting bloc. Mr. Trump is not used to a hard no — but that was the word of the week.

Schumer Says He’ll Oppose Gorsuch Nomination, Sets Up Filibuster Showdown With GOP

The  Democrat-controlled Senate approved historic rules change in 2013 by eliminating the use of the filibuster on all presidential nominees except those to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Source)

 

Invoking the long-threatened “nuclear option” means that most of President Barack Obama’s judicial and executive branch nominees no longer need to clear a 60-vote threshold to reach the Senate floor and get an up-or-down vote.

Speaking at the White House, Obama praised the Senate action,  led by  Harry Reid, U.S. Senator (NV) accusing Republicans of attempting to block his nominees based on politics alone, not on the merits of the nominee.

 

“This isn’t obstruction on substance, on qualifications.

It’s just to gum up the works,” he said.

Chuckie want’s a filibuster, it’s time to let him have it.

With 20 Democrats up for elections in states that President Trump handly won, along with all members of the House of Representatives in the same states let’s just see how much testosterone and estrogen they have circulating through their useless bodies.

 

President Trump has said all along he would use the nuclear option, to date he has failed to do so likely wanting to play nice with the recalcitrant obstreperous ideologues on the left.

It’s time to do so Mr. President so you will be able to more rapidly initiate your agenda and rebuild America.

On the final day of the confirmation hearings for Judge Neil Gorsuch, the Senate Democratic leader announced his opposition to the Supreme Court nominee.

In a speech on the Senate floor, Chuck Schumer said Gorsuch “will have to earn 60 votes for confirmation,” setting up a showdown with Republican leaders who may attempt to change Senate rules.

If Gorsuch “cannot earn 60 votes, a bar met by each of President Obama’s nominees and George Bush’s last two nominees, the answer isn’t to change the rules,” Schumer said. “It’s to change the nominee.”

After viewing the video below, the reader will question Schumer’s sanity, if they haven’t done so already.

 

To prevent the nuclear option, it would require eight Democrats to join them to move Gorsuch’s nomination forward under current Senate rules.

Short of that, Republican Senate leaders may trigger the so-called nuclear option, changing the rules to allow a simple majority to proceed.

The Gorsuch nomination has put Democrats in an excruciatingly difficult position.

They do not have the votes to vote down the Trump nominee outright, as they are a minority in the Senate.

But they are being pressed hard by liberal groups and their base to do the impossible — stop Gorsuch.

The task is impossible because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has made clear that if there is a filibuster, Republicans will change the Senate rules, just as the Democrats did for lower court judges in 2013 when they were in the majority.

Senate Democrats’ essential bind is this: They can mount a filibuster of Gorsuch because Republicans don’t have 60 votes to put an end to any filibuster.

But if Democrats were to do so, then McConnell could simply change Senate rules and lower the threshold for moving the nomination forward.

Enough is enough: It’s time to end political correctness toward Islamic jihadists

At some point, the American public needs to stand up and say ENOUGH!

 

We, as a nation, are not so blinded by political correctness that we cannot learn from the mistakes that others make.

Look across the Atlantic and you will see a 50-year preview of where we are currently headed with unchecked or vetted Islamic immigration.

It is not Islamaphobic to be concerned about a religious-political culture that wants total dominance of the world. 

How much longer will we accept excuses?

Update: Five now dead from the attack.

So when, WHEN will we stop worrying about tweets and Russians and get focused?

Think about what has happened in the past two days. A 14-year-old girl was brutally raped and sodomized by illegal immigrants at her high school.

 

 

 

 

How much longer will we confuse freedom of speech with violent utterances of sedition and hate?

The approach of the U.K. and other Western European countries is the same as the progressive in the United States deals with the issue, namely, crawling into the fetal position and “HOPE,” nothing will happen.

Hope is not a strategy, it’s planned failure, perhaps something these fools would prefer.

As you know by now, it has happened again, and it happened in London on the one-year anniversary of another Islamic jihadist terror attack.

However, I’d best be careful in what I say — after all, I don’t want to be referred to as an Islamophobe by the Islamapologists.

As a matter of fact, the Muslim mayor of London said just last year,

“Terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city. (Source)

I am hereby declaring that it’s time to go on the offense and start seeking out the terrorist cells and eliminating them, globally, and domestically.

My concern is that we continue to have those voices of the “coexist” crowd who just refuse to comprehend that there’s a dedicated group of individuals focused on our destruction.

I suppose if this had happened in these United States, and we still had a Barack Obama or worse as president, we’d be talking about “car” control, and not rushing to judgment.

Just as a reminder for those of you not aware, as reported by Reuters, Prime Minister Theresa May said of the attacks, ”The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city, where people of all nationalities, religions, and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech.”

 

 Any attempt to defeat those values through violence was “doomed to failure.”  (Seriously? Those are the words of a failed leader.)

Mark Rowley, Britain’s most senior counter-terrorism officer…said the attack was “Islamist-related terrorism.”

Police believed they knew the identity of the attacker but would not provide details at this stage, he said. 

It was the deadliest attack in London since four British Islamists killed 52 commuters and themselves in suicide bombings on the city’s transport system in July 2005, in London’s worst peacetime attack.”

BRITAIN: Parliament attacker is British-born MUSLIM terrorist, Khalid Masood, a repeat criminal who was investigated in the past by MI5 for his links to Islamic terrorism

I’m currently reading a Brad Thor counter-terrorism, novel.  

 

In it, the main character a Mr. Horvath  A former Navy SEAL, came up with the greatest and final solution for dealing with jihadists.

No GITMO, no trials, send teams of special operators into to the areas where high-value towel heads are located and kill them on the spot.

No muss, no fuss. 

It’s called good old-fashioned “Wet Work.”

 

Not a good day for the shooter he was shot dead by the police.

 

One could make the case that the U.S. Constitution would prohibit this.

When was the last time you heard of an Islamist carrying a bit about our Constitution?

We don’t their goal is to abolish it and have Islam become the only game in town.

 

The British-born MUSLIM jihadi, a convert to Islam and follower of ISIS, who killed 4 and seriously injured 29 in Westminster yesterday was Khalid Masood, 29, living in the Birmingham area, who had a series of convictions for assault and other crimes but police insist there was no intelligence suggesting he was about to unleash a terror attack.

 

UK Daily Mail  Kent-born Masood has never been convicted of terror offenses, although Theresa May revealed this morning that he had been on MI5’s radar a number of years ago.

 Masood was a married father-of-three, former English teacher and a religious convert who was into bodybuilding, according to Sky News.

A Scotland Yard spokesman said this afternoon: ‘Masood was also known by a number of aliases.

He was not the subject of any current investigations and there was no prior intelligence about his intent to mount a terrorist attack. ‘However, he was known to police and has a range of previous convictions for assaults, including GBH, possession of offensive weapons and public order offenses.

‘His first conviction was in November 1983 for criminal damage and his last conviction was in December 2003 for possession of a knife. He has not been convicted of any terrorism offenses.’

 

 

Masood stabbed PC Keith Palmer to death with two knives outside parliament after killing mother-of-two Aysha Frade and US tourist Kurt Cochran as he plowed along a crowded pavement on Westminster Bridge.

A source told Sky News that Masood was a ‘very religious, well-spoken man’.

They added: ‘You couldn’t go to his home in Birmingham on Friday because he would be in prayer.’

Lone Wolves and Other Animals

Clearly. the progressive left and those who believe they govern us will never understand how dangerous essentially fighting against President Trumps Wall is.
By their nature, they could care less.
The left and radical jihadists have a great deal in common.
Totalitarian in their ideology, many agree that terrorist organizations are not that band.
Compared with having to pretend these fools are our masters may indeed be worse.
Today is bitch slap a progressive yo-yo day.

By now you probably know about the savage rape in Rockville, Maryland, where a young girl was brutalized by two men who are in this country illegally. As one newspaper described it, ‘they took turns raping a 14-year-old girl in a high school bathroom.
‘ Does it get any lower, any more despicable?

We say ‘you probably know’ about the story because it was largely ignored by every network this side of Fox News.

It is truly a shameful chapter in ‘journalism’ when a crime is disregarded, perhaps because it buttresses President Trump’s warnings about illegal immigration.

Want to know the worst of it? CNN did manage to mention the case on its website, only to say that the debate over the alleged rapist is ‘moot.’ Yes, CNN went out of its way to defend the school district and downplay the crime.

And the 14-year-old victim, whose life has been changed forever? Well, never mind about her.

If you want to know one harsh truth about the case, you’d have to turn to, of all places, Univision.

An immigration attorney named Joseph Malouf explained that the prime suspect, 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, was allowed into the USA because of policies promoted by the Obama administration.
Sanchez was nabbed at the Mexican border seven months ago and released with nothing more than an order to appear before an immigration judge.
The lawyer Malouf was asked how things would be different under a Trump administration.
His revealing reply: ‘They would have arrested Mr. Sanchez and they would have detained him, and eventually he would have been deported.’

Exclusive: U.S. embassies ordered to identify population groups for tougher visa screening

Undermining terrorism screening efforts is the new patriotism.

 

Because getting Americans killed is the #Resistance. 

Reuters published internal cables laying out screening guidelines to spot potential terrorists.

This is certainly helpful to the left and to its terrorist pals. The cables emphasize, among other things, screening social media.

Considering how easy it is to erase social media, that certainly is a great help to terrorists and terrorist supporters to know.

 

Wow, I’m beginning to feel more secure already.

(SBU) Mandatory social media check for applicants present in a territory at the time it was controlled by ISIS

15. (SBU) If post determines the applicant may have ties to ISIS or other terrorist organizations or has ever been present in an ISIS-controlled territory, post must/must refer the applicant to the Fraud Prevention Unit for a mandatory social media review, as described in more detail in 7-FAH-1 H-943.5-2.

After viewing the wideo below, ask HomeLand Security, “How’s that been working out for ya?

The results of this review should be scanned into the NIV case for consideration during the SAO process.

Details on complying with this requirement will be provided via septel. (SBU) Mandatory Donkey SAO for Iraqi nationals with presence in territory at the time it was controlled by ISIS

Much of this ended up being suspended anyway when Obama’s pal in Hawaii announced that Hawaiian tourism and those 70 tourists who didn’t show up were more important than protecting Americans from Islamic terrorism.

But it’s revealing that the media is just as eager as Wikileaks to damage our national security by publishing information that can be exploited by Islamic terrorists.

Gorsuch Completes His 20-Hour Test. So How Did He Do? From The NY Times No Less

Every now and then like the proverbial blind squirrel hunting for an acorn in a snow storm, the Old Gray Lady eventually got this on right.

 

It must have driven the Editorial Staff up a tree.

Oh well, it sucks to be them, they will be filing for bankruptcy soon.

They have been teetering on the edge since 2013. (Source)

If President Trump is so inclined he will personally bankrupt the NYT for fake news and lies they said about him.

Trump is still a businessman, look for a huge out of court settlement.

Judge Neil M. Gorsuch can relax now. After 20-odd hours of Senate questioning this week, the Supreme Court nominee has completed his testimony.

The committee will hold a final session on Thursday featuring expert panelists discussing the judge.

But his job is done.

So what have we learned?

He’s probably going to be confirmed.

Maybe he’ll clear the 60 votes needed to break a filibuster, attracting sufficient support from Democrats — particularly those from states that President Trump won. Or maybe skeptics will hold the line and force Republicans to change longstanding Senate rules to elevate Judge Gorsuch on a simple majority vote.

But this much is clear: Nothing that’s happened this week has made much of a difference. Three days of hearings marked by attacks and deflections have left the Senate Judiciary Committee more or less where it started. If the Republicans’ goal was to persuade Democrats of a moral imperative to join them in support, they fell short. (In some cases, the nominee’s sparring with Democrats may have pushed some further away.)

The hearing was not top billing.

Empty seats. Distracted senators. Non-sequitur questions about fly-fishing and duck-size horses.

Despite the stakes inherent in any Supreme Court confirmation hearing, the Gorsuch proceedings often felt like an afterthought. Part of the burden falls on Democrats, who have failed to draw much blood in their questioning or generate meaningful momentum for opposition outside the hearing room, at least so far.

Finding oxygen in Mr. Trump’s Washington can be nearly impossible — amid the Russia inquiries, the health care push, the daily administration squabbling — an exercise in political “mutton busting” of sorts, to name the sheep-riding activity described in great detail by Judge Gorsuch.

This week, Democrats got thrown.
