Trump bars his administration from meeting with U.K. ambassador in retaliation for leaked memos

Over the weekend, confidential diplomatic cables from the United Kingdom's ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch, to officials back home were leaked to the press. They (accurately) described Trump as "inept," "insecure," and...

Both Mick Mulvaney and Fox News Want Alex Acosta Gone. Isn’t that interesting?

Donald Trump vowed to drain the swamp but instead brought the sewer. The sewer contains rats, which continually turn on one another, and today, it looks like Mick Mulvaney is out to gut Alex Acosta, because it’s in his interests to do so. Politico: Mulvaney told Trump on Monday that the continuing drip of damaging information surrounding the 2008 agreement Acosta struck to keep billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein from a heavy jail sentence would hurt the administration, according to two people familiar with the conversation. Mulvaney also may be seizing on an opportunity to try to depose a frequent antagonist who has frustrated some conservatives in the White House and business leaders on the outside. Acosta critics, including Mulvaney, have argued that he has not been aggressive enough in stamping out Obama-era workplace regulations and employment discrimination lawsuits, and they are using the Epstein lawsuit to push him out the door. As the British Ambassador said, “The knife fights are real.” Going along with this thought, guess who has thrown out a challenge to Donald Trump on this issue? Fox News is not only out to get Acosta, a host named Melissa Francis actually took Trump to task for praising Epstein in the past. Francis called Trump’s quote “horrifying.” Oh my ears and whiskers, what is this all about? Here’s what she said: “Obviously, there are these older comments surfacing that have been everywhere, of him saying that they both liked women, comments that have been requoted and are horrifying in the light of day now given what’s going on with Epstein.” “Trying to put on the record, I guess it was, that they had some huge falling out and they haven’t been friends 15 years. I don’t know why he would address this at all, especially in this setting. It seems unwise.” “But I don’t know that this was the right place or time or way to try and clean that up. Especially when you’re connecting it with Acosta. There needs to be a massive investigation into what happened there and if there was corruption afoot.” My prediction? Acosta is toast — and well he should be, not because of his political enemies in Washington or because Fox News has inexplicably decided to play their hand this way. Why that is taking place is a story yet to be told. You recall on Sunday, Trump went into a Twitter meltdown saying that Fox weekend anchors were as “boring as CNN” and that Fox “forgot who got them there.” Consensus is that it was Fox’s Epstein/Acosta coverage that so incensed Trump. Apparently, Fox wasn’t sufficiently rattled by Trump’s ire to change their narrative to something Trump might find more pleasing. They’re still on the dump Acosta train. If you want to place bets, the smart money would be Acosta leaving sooner rather than later.

It’s Kellyanne Conway Who Keeps Starting Cat Fights, Democrats Keep Finishing Them

I chose the above image because it reminded me of the reptiles in red uniforms in “V.” Actually, that would go a long way towards explaining Kellyanne’s behavior, she’s not of this worldd. Be that as it may, she must be a glutton for punishment because she still keeps making the same mistake. She’s taken on Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and now Ayanna Pressley — and other “fresh-women” as they categorizes them. These are the results. .@KellyannePolls oh hi Distraction Becky. Remember that time your boss tore babies from their mothers’ arms and threw them in cages? Yeah take a seat and keep my name out of your lying mouth. https://t.co/dS8saIssX8 — Ayanna Pressley (@AyannaPressley) July 9, 2019 Pressley is spot on. It’s vintage Kellyanne Conway to ignore the big issue at hand, and find some way to cheapen or sensationalize what has taken place. Her other tool is to trivialize a given matter, such as today when she said that the only reason Alex Acosta was being criticized was as some backdoor diss of Donald Trump — as if it’s all about Donald Trump, which in his view, and probably hers as well, it is. Here’s last weeks dust up. Also @KellyannePolls, maybe you actually do your job and show up to a Congressional hearing next time you want to talk to me. After all you, you ran away and skipped out on Oversight committee last week, just to call into Fox and Friends instead. 🤷🏽‍♀️ https://t.co/IzWJKWUxaN — Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) July 3, 2019 Kellyanne Conjob should wake up and smell the coffee. These women are not going to lie down and be walked upon. They’re going to stick to facts and not debate twisted Fox News headlines. Nobody is more concerned about the situation at the border then AOC, Pressley, and other members of the freshman class. The total irony here is that Conway is the one fomenting cat fights, not the other women. Conway started in with Nancy Pelosi weeks ago, and Pelosi said, “I’ll speak to the president, not staff.” To which Conway said, “That’s so pro-woman of you.” Pelosi doesn’t have the time nor the inclination to waste commentary on a Fox News talking head, whose self-importance far and away outreaches her knowledge of anything political. If Conway was in fact a knowledgeable adviser and not a paid propagandist, of course Pelosi would have spoken with her. Pelosi has gotten where she is by seeking input from a wide variety of sources. She knows how politics works, are you kidding? Bottom line, all of this is projection on Conway’s part. She’s the one with the Queen Bee complex, not Pelosi, Pressley or AOC. Pelosi has already forgotten more about government than Conway will ever know, and the other two women are where they are because they have made it their business to be on top of issues and fight the good fight. Conway should just zip it — but it’s highly doubtful that will occur. Or, maybe we could sprinkle her with some of that pink dust that got rid of the aliens?

Alex Acosta Just Threw Jeffrey Epstein Under The Bus, As White House Distances Itself

Alex Acosta is not only endorsing federal law enforcement pursuing Jeffrey Epstein for “horrific crimes,” he is ignoring his own law-breaking at the time of Epstein’s non-prosecution agreement in 2008. Acosta was then a U.S. Attorney in Florida and he broke the law by not informing the victims of the non-prosecution agreement, thereby depriving them of their legal right to object. This is the salient fact in people ranging from Nancy Pelosi to Fox News anchors asking Acosta to resign — and he’s just shining it on, like it doesn’t exist. The crimes committed by Epstein are horrific, and I am pleased that NY prosecutors are moving forward with a case based on new evidence. — Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019 Now that new evidence and additional testimony is available, the NY prosecution offers an important opportunity to more fully bring him to justice. — Secretary Acosta (@SecretaryAcosta) July 9, 2019 Meanwhile, Hatch Act violator Kellyanne Conway is defending her fellow law breaker, Acosta, on Fox News, saying what a great labor secretary he’s been and being critical of those who would dare to confront Acosta on his record, saying it’s all so long ago. Plus, she states that Trump doesn’t talk to Epstein anymore, so that makes it all okay, I guess. The White House wants nothing to do with this, plain and simple. .@realDonaldTrump says he feels badly for @SecretaryAcosta — Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) July 9, 2019 Pres Trump in Oval Office said he knew Jeffrey Epstein but broke with him years ago. He said Secretary Acosta has done a good job at Labor and that he would take a look at his involvement in the Epstein case. Trump also stressed it was many years ago. All per pool. — Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) July 9, 2019 .@realDonaldTrump says a lot of people were involved in the decision about Epstein a long time ago, but will look at it very carefully, per @robertarampton. Trump says Epstein was a fixture in Palm Beach and he knew him, but they had a falling out 15 years ago. Says not a fan. — Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) July 9, 2019 What’s intriguing about Trump saying he’s not a fan of Epstein’s — anymore, he clearly was at one time — is that Epstein is now free to pull any dirt he has on Trump out of the closet with impunity. If he’s not going to get any help from Trump, why would he protect him? It will be interesting to watch where this goes.
