Vicki Ward’s new book, “Kushner, Inc.” drops on March 19, and already Sarah Huckabee Sanders has used her lame go-to excuse, the Evil Media gives attention to Evil Books, rather than recognize the “great work Ivanka and Jared do for the country.” But, this is nothing new. Sanders has attacked the media on Ivanka’s behalf before. She said this on Hugh Hewitt’s show in 2017: “I think it’s shameful the way that she’s been treated,” Sanders said of coverage of the president’s eldest daughter. “If she didn’t have the same last name, they would be celebrating her. They would be praising her. They would be thanking God that she is sitting in a position that she is to influence policy and help women across this country. Now, no argument here that she is “sitting in a position to influence policy and help women.” My only question is when the hell does she propose to start? It’s been two and a half years already. In any event, the latest salvo across the bow that Hucky Boo Boo is trying to fend off, is the onslaught of queries she’s receiving about Kushner, Inc., which portrays Javanka as considerably more sinister than the GQ and Vogue outward appearances that they have taken great pains to cobble together. There are also some rather humorous anecdotes, such as the one about how the letter Trump dictated about firing Comey, didn’t even get sent to the right printer in the White House. That’s right. But that should come as no shock, if you recall this is the staff that had trouble turning on the White House lights back when they moved in, and doing a press release without typos is near impossible for them. Here’s what happened with the Comey letter. [I]n early May [2017], an aide to Gary Cohn, who had an office on the second floor of the West Wing, noticed a document on his printer. It appeared to be a letter from Trump, firing Comey. It also appeared to have been sent to the wrong printer. … Trump was livid about the attention the FBI investigation was attracting, but to fire the head of the FBI while it was investigating him was an extraordinarily risky move. … Cohn told his aide to take the letter straight to [then-White House counsel] Donald McGahn, who also had an office on the second floor of the White House (and whose printer it had clearly been meant for). Upon receiving it and realizing it had been printed in the wrong place, McGahn said, “Oh, f!@#!” Take a moment to get this into perspective. Here is an historic occasion, unprecedented (that’s that exhausted old word, ready to collapse like an ancient horse, in its traces) — the president of the United States firing the head of the FBI. This does not occur every day. But the letter, which is classified information, to all intents and purposes, ends up going who knows where in the White House. This is a level of incompetence that would not be tolerated in any decent law firm in a small town, but it is standard operating procedure at the Trump White House. And staffers within have been protesting since the beginning. Why else the historical (and yes, unprecedented) staff turnover. Washington Post:  “You could start draining […]

The GOP’s “Age” Old Problem Has Gotten Worse.

1
Well, it’s not like they can say that they weren’t warned. The “autopsy report” following the 2012 election was both blunt, and honest. It said that the GOP, in its current iteration, was dying. It’s core constituency was mainly white, older, rural, less educated men, heavy emphasis on the older. Every year, more and more older GOP voters were finding out firsthand what “God friended me” really means, and little to no fresh, new blood was coming to replace them. The report admitted that an overhaul of this magnitude was going to be a multi cycle undertaking, but stressed that it had to be done to save the party from extinction. It advised slowly and gently extricating the party from the far right wing Evangelicals who gave it a rather extremist religious image, as well as maintaining their core principles, but relaxing the rigidity of the orthodoxy to attract new members, as well as becoming more culturally tolerant in regards to sexual orientation and minority status. The document was a well researched, well thought out, well planned path forward for the party. Which meant that the RNC was able to save money on the cost of Charmin for a few months. Rather than turn to the difficult path of ensuring the party’s long term viability, the GOP decided to try to squeak one more election out, win the Presidency, and start the rebuilding process in the next 8 years. I think. It’s impossible for a mind that can comprehend the purpose of shoelaces to interpret Republican thought. But instead of rebuilding from the foundation up, the GOP turned to a racist, narcissistic, 70 year old Tasmanian Devil, who promptly finished the job of demolishing the GOP’s “Big Brothers House.” Well, if Donald Trump was supposed to be a dessert in the going away party dinner for the retiring old GOP, he turned out to be a slice of moldy pound cake, and guess what? The waiter just slid the little plastic tray with a piece of paper on it onto the table. Yep boys, the check is due. Over the weekend on MSNBC, Voto Latino president Maria Theresa Kumar snagged my attention. In the interview, she said that their polling and statistical analysis showed that in 2020, for the first time, there would be more voters under the age of 46 than there would be voters over the age of 46. Yep, the Baby Boomer train is pulling into the terminal. The voting population is finally becoming a majority that is younger, darker, and more feminine, exactly the three demographic groups that the GOP, under the tutelage of the Tangerine Tantrum, has done everything in their power to alienate. One would think that this wold make 2020 a walk in the park, but as with most things in life, there’s a catch. Voters under 30 tend to be the most erratic, unreliable voters since the Nikelodeon Kids Choice Awards. They are not ideology or dogma driven, eschew labels, and tend to show up only when issues that directly affect them are at stake.But younger voters also tend to be more progressive and tolerant, and mostly also still tend to believe in facts, something that the GOP ties to a stake and sets fire to a mound of branches under at every chance it gets. In 2018, the Democrats benefited […]
