“I get it that a lot of our readers didn’t like the Standard for its resolute anti-Trump position. They would have been better served had they emulated the Wall Street Journal editorial page, which I think has found the sweet spot of praising and defending Trump when he deserves it, and criticizing him for his manifest defects—sometimes in the same editorial or op-ed column.”
I ignored the anti-Trumpism in favor of the book reviews and features and I’ll miss the magazine.
That’s what the country needs, after two years of courtly, feckless, under-the-radar Jeff Sessions. You’d certainly have to think so the way the Dims are after Whitaker to recuse himself from the Mueller hoax, which he reportedly won’t do. Instead he will take over for Rosenputz.
We need an AG to also take on the Dim election fraud ongoing in Florida, Georgia and Arizona; Felonia’s emails which should have gotten her an indictment; and the Clapper-Brennan-FBI-DOJ collusion in spying on the Trump campaign. Which the Mueller hoax-probe was designed to cover up.
The alleged unconstitutionality of Whitaker’s appointment is just that, alleged, while the law is clear: Whitaker can serve as acting AG for 210 days, though the clock resets once Trump nominates someone to serve in the position permanently. If Whitaker wants to be nominated he surely knows what to do.

UPDATE: We’ll soon find out. President Trump says he’s letting Whitaker decide how to handle Mule Face and his witch hunt.
Not Bronco Bama’s, no matter what he says, and you vote for the Dimocrats at your peril.
Only if you want it all to collapse, as they vote to raise corporate taxes and restore the business-strangling regulations Trump and the Republican Congress have eliminated.
“His approving of the stalled pipelines, his more coal friendly policies, his more oil & gas friendly policies, have all been real boosts to the economy. The big one though – the tax breaks and more importantly the portions of the laws that have dealt with repatriating the trillions of dollars companies had overseas and reinvesting those dollars here – was an act of Congress cheered on by the president (that would not have been enacted under Obama or Hillary). So, it is not like the president has no effect.”
Even fixed-income baby boomers would suffer if the Dims get back Congress with lower 401K payments as the stock market retrenches. Some of that could happen by 2020 anyway, or so the establishment (that’s fought Trump all along) believes. It will happen without doubt if the Dims get the House and Senate back on Nov. 6

Nobody character actor James Cromwell is the latest liberal to warn of “blood in the streets” if Democrats don’t win the midterm elections in seven days.
“If we don’t stop [President Trump] now, then we will have a revolution for real. Then there will be blood in the streets.”
Liberal blood, most likely. They forget that we deplorables have the guns and know how to use them. A liberal revolution wouldn’t last a week.

This column from the incomparable Ann Coulter also might be called an old-fashioned “fisking,” taking apart some very fake news engineered by CNN “reporter” Ana Cabrera.
Cabrera took a real quote from President Trump (it’s “a very scary time for young men in America” due to uncorroborated sexual assault allegations) and paraphrased it to make it racial (Trump saying “white men have a lot to fear right now”), then asked a black guest to comment on the fake news to blow it up even bigger.
Later, much later, on Twitter, she apologized for her “mistake” that wasn’t a mistake. Giving her a two-fer: doing the nasty on Trump, then apologizing as if she was contrite. Poor, honest Ana, she made a boo-boo.
“The network deliberately pushed a racism narrative,” writes Coulter, “calculated to incite racial hatred that could get someone killed…If this were an error, it would have been corrected before the first commercial break. It was not corrected because it’s not a mistake; it’s a political strategy.”
And it’s a perfect example of what President Trump calls very fake news.
“…a potential 10th generation relative…” in a DNA test, reports the Boston Globe. Making [Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren] 1/1,024th Native American. Note that minuscule trace is only “a potential.”
“To put that in perspective, Warren might even be less Native American than the average European American,” Republican National Committee Deputy Communications Director Mike Reed said in an email, while saying this would “not give you the right to claim minority status.”
As Warren did on a Harvard teaching application and in an Association of American Law Schools teachers directory, thereby abusing affirmative action policies to her advantage.

UPDATE: Laughable that her “Native American” claimed result is actually only “Latin American,” specifically Mexico, Peru, or Columbia. And the Cherokee nation is pissed off.
MORE: Breitbart reports that Warren is much better related to a soldier in the Tennessee Militia, which was responsible for the Trail of Tears pushing of the Cherokees into Oklahoma.
This example of retribution, across the Columbia River from lefty Portland, Oregon, is the reason I have no Trump stickers on my car, nor a Cruz sign in my yard.
Here in the blue hole in the red Texas donut, crazed leftist Beto supporters are as prolific as they are in Portland. It’s just not worth the risk.

UPDATE: A Real Clear Politics piece on a crazed lefty vandal ripping Cruz signs from yards doesn’t say which city it is in Texas but I’d bet it’s Austin.
