Thread: What Attorney General Barr REALLY Said

1. There has been a lot of commentary about Attorney General Barr’s first testimony in congressional hearings since the Mueller report was released.
2. A lot of us in the conservative twittersphere are downright elated about what he said in his unflappable and calmly professional manner. Most people have summarized his testimony in terms of the following points made:
2A. The redacted report is being released “within a week.”

These Democrats And #NeverTrumpers Must Apologize To America For The Russia Collusion Hoax conservativehq.com/article/29932-…
>@BetoORourke for saying, at a town hall event on Saturday morning: 'You have a president who in my opinion, beyond a shadow of a doubt, sought to, however ham-handedly, collude with the Russian government, a foreign power, to undermine and influence our elections,'
.@RepJohnLewis speaking Saturday on @MSNBC said he still believed Trump’s impeachment was inevitable. “I think that day will come... I don’t think he’s legitimate. I said it back at the end of the election. I still believe that today.”

Thread: Another Iran Update

1. Here’s a brief update on some items about Iran in the news over the past couple of months. Always good to keep tabs on what’s happening there, as the IRI’s shadow is large in the Middle East.
2. What sparked this thread was a news story that Iran is building two new nuclear plants!

<quote>

Iranian leaders announced on Monday the construction of two new nuclear plants, and it remains unclear if the Trump administration views this ….
2A. …as crossing a red line since its abandonment of the landmark nuclear deal, which included provisions permitting Iran to work on heavy water nuclear reactors that could provide a plutonium-based pathway to a bomb.

Thread: Media Polls, Impeachment, 2020, and Other Democrat Fairy Tales

1. To the consternation of Democrats everywhere and their lapdogs in the legacy media, polls continue to show @POTUS ‘s presidential approval hovering in the high 40s.
2. The latest is a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll after the faux Cohen hearings, the Hanoi Summit and CPAC showing his approval numbers “ticking up” to 46%:
wsj.com/articles/trump…
3. This is after 2+ years of constant media bashing, the latest being the narrative surrounding Michael Cohen’s obviously Clinton-scripted testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee last week. [Too bad for them that Cohen testified he’s never been to Prague!]

Thread: On Congressional Travel Perks

1. Some weeks ago you may recall the kerfuffle around canceling House Speaker (San Fran Nan) Pelosi’s entourage’s overseas trip during the government shutdown-over-Wall-funding standoff.
2. It raised the hackles of Democrats and their lickspittle legacy media allies who castigated @POTUS for the dastardly last-second action that left luggage piled up at the airport.

<quote>
3. A disgusted House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) blasted Trump over the announcement. “It demeans the presidency. It demeans the office, because it's so petty,” he told reporters on Capitol Hill.

David Walsh went to the Niskanen Center conference. He got hives: bradford-delong.com/2019/02/david-…
I think it is fair to say that the already-broken American political public sphere has become significantly more broken since November 8, 2018.

Thread: Martin Luther and………Donald J Trump!

1. Yeah, you read that right. The two of them in the same phrase. What do they have to do with each other? Read on….
2. One of my favorite shirts is one that I bought after watching the 2003 movie “Luther” starring Joseph Fiennes. As a lifelong Lutheran who has read a lot about the man over the years, I was thrilled that the movie’s distributors were selling shirts and other memorabilia.

THIS THING RIGHT HERE?

Republicans do this all the time. Check out all the #NeverTrumpers who were actually "I'm going to oppose Trump body and soul until he's the Republican nominee and then I'm going to put him in the White House."

They don't want Democrats to do the same.
I have been saying this all week, that we need to be able to do this sort of thing. Argue passionately, fight for our morals and ethics and beliefs, shove the window left, and then vote strategically if we can't get exactly what we want this time around.
I am definitely on @AOC's side in most of her conflicts, I am excited about her term and want to see her succeed. I also think (and argued before) that we need Nancy Pelosi's leadership while Trump has the White House and McConnell has the Senate.

The president has the right to have individuals serve in his administration who share his view. Plain and simple. If they can't get with the program fire their arses! They are not there to protect us from the president. #JeromePowell #FederalReserve
The deep state and swamp both alive and well. Do not think for a minute that individuals appointed by Trump always have his best interest at heart. Many of these individuals were chosen due to referrals. #JeromePowell #FederalReserve
Remember as candidate Trump he did not have the political connections as most pols. Individuals were referred to him and they agreed to serve. Now we see they were serving their own interest by serving their own purposes or the deep state.

Looks like @JeffFlake is alone on his “protect Mueller or we’ll block judges” move hotair.com/archives/2018/…
The DOJ opinion on the Whitaker appointment is SPOT ON. #NeverTrumpers are either are playing dumb, or they are ignorant re: the extent of the Executive Branch's authority, the legal precedent in support of THE Whitaker appointment, and basic constitutional law.
They can't demand that Whitaker recuse when Rosenstein has actual, serious Russia conflicts. And remember - they defended top intel officials Page, McCabe, Comey, Strzok, Ohr , etc. for having blatant political bias because they could be "trusted" to do their jobs w/out bias 🙄

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain? We tried propriety — has there ever been a nicer human being than Mitt Romney? And the results were always the same.
This is because — while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety — the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

NeverTrump’s Billionaire Leftist Benefactors (via @Julie_Kelly2) bit.ly/2RWcPec
Just hours after Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general last Wednesday at the president’s behest, #TheResistance found its newest target for destruction: Sessions’ interim replacement, Matthew Whitaker.
Negative coverage about the acting attorney general has dominated national publications and cable news outlets. Reporters have portrayed Whitaker as a Trump lackey, a crackpot, and an “attack dog”;

The complete audio of my long conversation w/ @maxboot is now posted: hughhewitt.com/max-boot-on-ne… The transcript will take a few hours to post. Important conversation w/ a very smart #NeverTrump public intellectual whom I just don’t think sees the whole picture of @realDonaldTrump.
BTW: @realdonaldtrump testimony on the U.N. remodel —delivered in 2005 and available for watching here: — was my first awareness that he had communication skills sets that are formidable. (I’ve never watched a minute of #TheApprentice.) My biggest argument
w/ @MaxBoot and other #NeverTrumpers is that @realDonaldTrump is in any way a fascist. He just isn’t. Inflating deep disagreements with his policies into a threat to the Republic isn’t responsible nor persuasive. @maxboot book is a great memoir of how he got there, but also a

SMH #NeverTrumper Rick Wilson worked to elect as he puts it "A RABID PRO-TRUMPER" in a statewide race. Who'd you work for Rick? What xenophobic, mealy mouthed Trump sycophant are you working to put in Congress on Nov 6th? Your followers deserve to know the truth. #hypocrisy
@PhilippeReines it turns out I didn't need a long memory. Do you know who he is working to elect? I think it's important for people to know. Transparency right now is crucial. 🕊️👆

Thread: Daniel Greenfield on Fire!

1. One of my favorite opinion journalists wrote an OUTSTANDING piece on how Democrat rage is destroying America. Here are some excerpts:
2. “’Use the rage,’ former Attorney General Eric Holder scream-tweeted. ‘Get people out to vote and be rid of these people.’”
3. “Had President Trump urged his supporters to channel their rage into politics, the quote would have been good for a week of sanctimonious media lectures about his destruction of democratic norms.”

On the 12 steps toward authoritarianism, where is “Letting another country murder its political opponents, who are your legal residents, with impunity and tacit approval?”
Justice for #Khashoggi
2/ Additional authoritarianism points: “Well, they buy our military products with which they slaughter Yemenites, and they book rooms in my Emolument Hotel, so they can murder whomever they like.”
3/ I follow a good number of conservatives. Other than the solid and admirable #NeverTrumpers, the silence from the right about Khashoggi's murder has been nauseating.
The Full Trumpification of the Republican Party marches on.

.@BenSasse on #MeToo and Kavanaugh: “We all know that the president cannot lead us through this time” hotair.com/archives/2018/…
It’s true that Trump is not the guy to “lead us through” this mess, if by “lead us through” you mean brokering some type of culture reconciliation between women terrified of not being believed and men terrified of being judged guilty without due process if they’re accused.
That’s what Sasse has in mind. President Grab ‘Em By The Pussy is not well cast for the fraught politics of a momentous #MeToo battle in the hottest political spotlight.

Look. This is a big story. MSM isn't touching it. They are starting to profile Mark Judge a bit, but no mention of his work with the AltRight media machine and for Tucker Carlson. No mention either of the Leeden connections.
Mark Judge, Roger Stone, conservative PR firms... /1
2/ ... & all the Alt-Right f*ck-os are COUNTING on this NOT being covered. This is their media machine. It helped to elect a corrupt President. They need it for the mid-terms. And they will protect against its exposure at all costs.
Therefore, it needs to be exposed.
3/ What will get exposed in a serious piece of investigative journalism are the real workings of political smear campaigns and disinformation. And the well-established machine is made up of PR firms, Congressional staffers, MSM, & now Kremlin-propped up Alt-Right personalities.

To liberals who think #NeverTrump Republicans are allies. Here is Erick Erickson an early #NeverTrumper spreading ugly propaganda on @BetoORourke. #NeverTrumpers Erickson, Mensch, Rick Wilson, Mair have always backed Cruz who's just a Trump sycophant. They still do. #VoteBeto
#NeverTrumpers back Ted Cruz who has ties to racist extremist David Horowitz. Horowitz has hosted Bannon, Milo, Farage, Sessions, Geert Wilders. Here's a link to Ted's 2013 speech from Horowitz' TX retreat.👇#NeverTrumpers are not liberal allies

#NeverTrumpers oppose Trump because they think he is a "pro abortion liberal masquerading as a conservative." See Rick Wilson & Erickson's quotes below. #NeverTrumpers are pro NRA, anti choice, anti immigrant, anti ACA. Mensch wanted Cruz appointed to SCOTUS. #VoteBeto

#NeverTrumpers Prove Willing To Burn Down GOP In Revenge For Trump thefederalist.com/2018/09/06/nev…
The remaining Never-Trumpers now wish to burn the GOP down. The latest example is @RadioFreeTom, who penned another entry in the Washington Post’s ongoing series urging conservatives to vote for Democrats in November.
He writes: “Republican elected officials, from Congress to the state houses, have chosen to become little more than enablers for an out of control executive branch. The only way to put a stop to this is to vote against the GOP in every race, at every level in 2018.”

@Sgjenks825 @Chappyricky @KassandraSeven Your question is a good one, as long as it doesn't turn into attacks by others on the #FormerGOP and #NeverTrumpers who respond.
@Sgjenks825 @Chappyricky @KassandraSeven I would say I USED TO identify as a Republican, for many years; because I know that life starts before birth, but mostly because I considered myself a "Fiscal Conservative."

I admit I bought into the "family values" image, until Trump showed what Reps really think on that topic.
@Sgjenks825 @Chappyricky @KassandraSeven Trump was a watershed moment, yes. But looking back, a lot of other things in my personal life and in my thinking were leading me away from the GOP before he showed up.

(1 of 3) An excellent piece here on “Explaining Trump Hatred.” The article gives five specific reasons why the “Resistance” (Democrats, Uniparty #NeverTrumpers, and their paid legacy media sycophants) actually hate @POTUS (a subject of some interest to us normals).
(2 of 3) The five reasons are listed here:
a. Trump is an outsider [yes, we’ve learned about the uselessness and criminality of the political class!]
b. Trump fights back [unlike ANY Republican president since Reagan, but even more so!]
(2 of 3, cont'd):
c. Trump loves America [unlike the viscerally anti-American Left]
d. Lib-Progs are spoiled rotten [they’ve had no real resistance to their policies for decades]
e. Lib-Progs’ entitlement complex [they believe they’re our rightful rulers – not!]
