Without Bannon Trump More Isolated

“Bannon had delivered for the [conservative] movement, reportedly convincing President Trump to withdraw from the Paris Climate Accords, and to visit Israel on his first trip abroad. Bannon was also probably the only person who could deliver honest advice and criticism to the president, because he did not need the job.

“He is a self-made man, and not a Washington climber. Thus it was that Bannon reportedly told Trump that firing former FBI director James Comey would be more trouble than it was worth. He was right.”

Now Trump has only Jared and Ivanka, two Democrats, to closely advise him. Will he turn into a go-along to get-along RINO? Wait and see.

Come and get it

Google: A PC Monoculture

“Google’s left bias has created a politically correct monoculture that maintains its hold by shaming dissenters into silence. This silence removes any checks against encroaching extremist and authoritarian policies.”

A tech employee steps out of the monoculture putting himself at risk of being fired.

UPDATE: PJMedia weighs in with diversity is conformity. No kidding.

MORE: The tech employee has been fired.

Mueller’s grand jury

From comenter Julian Hill at the WSJ:

“Crooked Mueller–appointed to investigate a crime when no crime has been identified and fatally conflicted due to his relationship with BFF Lyin’Jim (‘I’m Nauseous’) Comey, after recruiting 16 ‘unbiased’ former Clinton bundler/shysters now forges ahead in his illegal,unethical safari into the heart of the swamp as he impanels a D.C. Jury prepared to indict a ham sandwich if nothing more substantial is on offer.The Deep State crooked, dishonest, unethical, murderous, and above all self interested, gears up to oppose, thwart,and delay the work of the duly elected POTUS–illustrating once again their determination to oppose, at every turn, the will of the American people, and if possible effect a silent coup–in this case not so silent…”

Schumer rules out tax cuts

And, because the GOPe is so wimpy, the minority Dems essentially run the Senate. Still…

“With the legislative calendar slipping away, Republicans should appreciate the favor they’ve just been done. As they draft a plan to boost economic growth and provide taxpayer relief, GOP lawmakers now know that the three Democrats who didn’t sign today’s letter—-coincidentally all up for re-election in states Donald Trump won in 2016—-are the only ones interested in negotiating.”

Now we’ll see if the GOPe is interested in negotiating.

The plot to oust Trump

It’s a House bill that so far has two dozen backers, all Dems. It would convene a committee of doctors to present to the full congress a psychiatric evaluation of President Trump in accord with the 25th Amendment—a JFK era amendment.

Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner.

“But the U.S. Constitution’s 25th Amendment does allow for a majority of the president’s cabinet, or ‘such other body as Congress may by law provide,’ to decide if an Oval Office occupant is unable to carry out his duties – and then to put it to a full congressional vote.”

You want a real civil war in this country, one of snipers and other guerrilla action initially aimed at taking out the political and establishment elite? This is the way to get one. Initially, I say, because wars turn messy fast. Especially guerrilla wars.

Trump could fire them all

Rush Limbaugh has it right:

“He could fire Rosenstein, and he could fire Mueller. There’s nothing stopping him from doing it, nothing legally. He could go to Rosenstein right now. He would be perfectly within his bounds to go to Rosenstein and say, ‘Look, this investigation can’t be wide open for anything. You’ve gotta limit what these people can look for. You’ve gotta limit it to actual felonious crimes. You can’t have them subpoenaing anybody they want financial records, text records, tax records. There has to be a limit.'”

Or else you’re fired. Not that even Limbaugh expects Trump to do it. The wheeler-dealer real estate tycoon has been poisoned by swamp gas and he’s playing the swamp’s game by the swamp’s rules. As Limbaugh says: That’s NOT why he was elected.

He wants them to love him. They ain’t never gonna love him. He either kicks ass or he goes under, glub, glub, glub.

UPDATE:  Interesting details from the WSJ about Mueller’s defiance of President Bush in 2006 in a Comey-like pose of the righteous lawman. And one of his new minions previous run-in with Jared Kushner. All in all, it looks like Trump will be damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t. Not to mention his son-in-law. Demand they resign for conflicts. If they won’t, fire them all.
