Washington D.C. – Survival of the fittest

 

Wolf Management 101 – Guest post by Mustang

 

Washington is a pack of wolves.  There are several species of wolf, of course … but for simplicity sake, let’s just pretend there are only a few.  Nevertheless, despite different species, all wolves behave in the same way.  They are hunters looking to bring down and consume the weakest of their prey.

How we perceive these wolves is interesting.  For example, if one happens to be a western rancher who suffers the loss of one of his cattle, it makes perfect sense that this westerner would form a low opinion of wolves —but no matter what the rancher thinks, the truth is that the wolf is pure of heart.  He is only doing what wolves do.  A wolf pack may have killed and eaten a cow, but it did not break into the rancher’s house and steal his stereo or his wife’s jewelry.

We may apply the same analogy to describe Washington’s beltway shenanigans, where there are several species of wolves (Democrats, Republicans, Independents, journalists, lobbyists, bureaucrats).  They too are pure of blackest heart —seeking out the weakest of their prey.  I can even hear howling in the background.

This leads me to wonder, if Donald Trump has a mission to drain the swamp, and if he understands that the swamp is populated with wolves, why isn’t he arming himself?

  • Even supposing that Jeff Sessions resigns as Attorney General, does Mr. Trump imagine there will be no consequences from Sessions’ friends, allies, or even those of another political species who hates Sessions guts but sees an advantage in attacking Trump?  Is Mr. Trump so starved for attention?
  • Even supposing it is true that CNN and MSNBC behave themselves as something less than journalists, does Trump enhance his position, or detract from it, by hounding these people as news fakers?  (For the record, I can’t think of anything lower on the food chain than a journalist).  Why not starve the news fakers to death rather than giving them something to feast on every single day?
  • One must also wonder how to deal with wolves most effectively.  Is it by behaving as they do, running around baying at the moon, or by using high caliber weapons to dispatch them into wolf Valhalla?

There is something of Mr. Trump that we just don’t need: a daily dose of school-yard immaturity.  But there is also much about Trump that this country desperately needs —and why he was elected to the nation’s highest office.  We need him to address the wolves because they have become far too over-populated, because that is what Mr. Trump promised to do, and why the people elected him.  If he has a problem with Jeff Sessions, address it privately, as a gentleman, and then get on with the business of state-craft.

I understand that we can’t allow Mr. Trump to actually shoot these wolves, but he can damn-well starve them to death.  I hope he’s reading Bunkerville and thus gaining such phenomenal free advice.

Who in the world is Rob Goldstone? The man who set up Trump Jr? UPDATE

So just who is this character Rob Goldstone? The man who set up the meeting with Donald Jr for the latest Russia melt down for one. If the pictures of him which I include are any representation, not much of a guy. I’ll let you opine on this latest kerfuffle with Donald Trump Jr. I for one was never in favor of Trump’s kids being so involved in the campaign and now the government. Anyone with any sense knows that politics is a blood sport and not for the uninitiated. And that is what they were and are. So the price will be paid. Oxygen has now been given to the Russia Russia Russia thing just when the story seemed to have started to fade. Mueller will have a field day. So let’s go back and take a look at the man who initiated this meeting.

UPDATE:

Veselnitskaya-McFaulForeignAffairsCommittee06142016-

Well Lookie Here=Russian Lawyer Veselnitskaya is Pictured with Obama Ambassador to Russia – 8 Days After Jr. Mtg.

More information leaked out today on Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya.

Veselnitskaya told NBC News on Monday she was not with the Kremlin as was reported by The New York Times. (So much for that)

So why was Veselnitskaya hanging out with Obama officials just days after her meeting with Donald Trump Jr.?

And why was Veselnitskaya given a privileged seat up front during the Congressional hearing?

UPDATE: Veselnitskaya’s facebook page shows she was in Washington DC on June 14, 2016.

The Hill:

The information “would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father,” reads one of the emails from Rob Goldstone, who acted as an intermediary to set up the meeting.

“This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” wrote Goldstone.

In a June 3, 2016, email released on Twitter, referring to the information on Clinton, Trump Jr. told Goldstone: “If it’s what you say I love it especially later in the summer.”

In another email, Goldstone suggested the information about Clinton could be given to then-candidate Donald Trump through Rhona Graff, his longtime assistant.

“I can also send this info to your father via Rhona, but it is ultra sensitive so wanted to send to you first,” Goldstone wrote.

Rob Goldstone, the man who set up the meeting between Donald Trump Jr. and Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, has quite the fun social media presence including a video of him singing and dancing and a photo of him rocking a hat that says “CUNTY.”

Goldstone is a former tabloid journalist who now runs a public relations firm for musicians. One of these clients is Emin Agalarov, who is connected to President Trump and reportedly once tried sending prostitutes to Trump’s hotel room in Moscow. Trump Jr. released emails Tuesday between him and Goldstone that arranged the June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower.

Kellyanne Conway and her bruising knock down with CNN Chris Cumo

Russia, Russia Russia and CNN. What could go better? Add Kellyanne Conway. In a bruising thirty plus commercial free knock down, CNN and the absurd interview  that occured should move the needle on their ratings down even further. CNN Now Losing To Nick-At-Nite In Prime Time Ratings War  

Better yet, Tucker Carlson has the low lights of the interview. I give you his take on the action, and if you have any interest in the complete absurdity of CNN, the second video will do it.

Here is the full thirty minute interview in this absurd commercial free interview with Chris Cuomo.

Trump without hotel room because Obama never made a reservation

 

I couldn’t believe that “certain” of the MSM was mocking Trump’s staff that he didn’t have decent digs to lay his and his wife’s head while in Hamburg. Since we have analyzed the Trump’s body posture interactions to death, let’s move on to this important topic. It doesn’t look like he suffered too much in this hotel, but looks like a security nightmare. UPDATE: Turns out the digs are German Government housing.

The White House is blaming the Obama administration for leaving President Donald Trump without a proper hotel during this week’s G20 summit.

Every top-shelf lodging was already booked by the time the Trump White House began making inquiries – but that, two White House officials say, is because their predecessors never booked rooms for an American delegation.

The G20’s northern Germany summit was announced in February 2016, when Obama was still president and Trump was considered a long-shot hope to take the White House.

‘Obama’s people left everyone high and dry,’ one current official said on Friday. ‘They didn’t care enough to make sure whoever was president would have a place to stay.’

De Blasio rushes to G20 summit to join anarchists

The only thing that could have been more absurd was to have Obama attend the G-20 in his more comfortable role as Community Organizer. At first I thought this had to be The Onion, but no. This on the heels of the murdering of a police officer.

Police and protesters clashed ahead of the G20 summit in Germany Thursday, with riot gear-clad cops swarming the streets to block the 10,000-strong crowd with water cannons. What could be better than to have de Blasio join in?

Mayor de Blasio on Thursday skipped an NYPD swearing-in ceremony made somber by this week’s assassination of a cop — then hours later revealed he was busy preparing to jet off on a surprise trip to join leftist protesters at the G-20 summit in Germany.

Hizzoner’s overseas jaunt was kept under wraps until just 90 minutes before he took off from Newark Airport.

A last-minute announcement said he “will attend several events surrounding the G-20 Summit, including Saturday’s Hamburg Zeigt Haltung rally.”

The mayor also made sure the free trip will include a visit with his son, Dante, a Yale University student who’s spending the summer on an internship in Berlin, a City Hall spokesman said.

Presumptive Republican challenger Nicole Malliotakis accused de Blasio of abandoning pressing issues in the Big Apple to pursue his progressive agenda in Europe.

CNN tickled pink they smacked down the Trump gif creator

 

The buzz yesterday because CNN was on the ropes over the threatening of someone who dared to create a anti CNN Gif on twitter, later picked up by Trump, was amazing. Because the world got to see how perverse CNN was. First I give you a short clip with Tammy Bruce expressing exactly how bizarre it was, then the amazed folks at CNN.

But for some reason, CNN host Alisyn Camerota expressed surprise and delight that the guy who created the video of Donald Trump taking down someone with the CNN logo superimposed on his face has apologized — after CNN unmasked him and tracked him down.

As Mike Lachance has reported, CNN tracked down the clip creator and threatened to dox him—to expose his identity and location—if he backed off his apology.

CNN and other media are pushing the line that if was proper to unmask the guy because he also had racist and anti-Semitic anonymous posts. But that’s not why CNN did this. CNN tracked the guy down because he creating a GIF mocking CNN, that then was used by CNN’s arch enemy, Trump.

Camerota is either extremely naive—or extremely cynical. Co-host Chris Cuomo wasn’t so wide-eyed, telling Camerota “when exposed, and identified, he then decided to apologize.”

But Camerota wouldn’t quit her Pollyanna impersonation, saying that she saw the apology as a possible “glimmer of hope.”

But it wasn’t the addendum. CNN threatened him that if he ever did it again, they would expose him, thus putting him at risk for what they already agreed would happen. Blackmail. That is what it is.

Scalise: fractured bones, injured internal organs, severe bleeding, condition critical

Prayers for Rep Scalise. Of course, the Alt-Left’s rhetoric has nothing to do with this.

Rep. Scalise is reported by MedStar Washington to have fractured bones, internal organs injured and severe bleeding. Scalise remains in critical condition, all thanks to a left wing extremist who hunted down Republicans.

From America’s Watchotower:

Here are 15 examples of celebrities wishing or threatening violence against Donald Trump, and if the left-wing on Twitter can be used as an example they are only upset it was not worse than it was. But the left are the tolerant ones…

Bernie Saunders?

“Today in the White house we have perhaps the worst and most dangerous President in the history of our country.  Bernie Saunders.

Congressman Steve Scalise sustained a single rifle shot to the left hip. The bullet travelled across his pelvis, fracturing bones, injuring internal organs, and causing severe bleeding. He was transported in shock to MedStar Washington Hospital Center, a Level I Trauma Center. He underwent immediate surgery, and an additional procedure to stop bleeding. He has received multiple units of blood transfusion. His condition is critical, and he will require additional operations. We will provide periodic updates.
