Some Trump-Loyal Outlets Aren’t As Important To The Cause As They Once Were

During the primaries and the run up to the election, Steve Bannon’s version of Breitbart “News” was Trump central, doling out all the propaganda that was unfit to print.

The site was full of unhinged, kamikaze raids on conservatives in the race, but gave breathless, worshipful deference to Trump.

Comments section?

Yeah, you waded into that alt-right, Nationalist cesspool at your peril.

When Bannon was pulled to be Trump’s strategist through the last stages of his campaign, and then later was given a cabinet position, nobody was overly shocked.

Disgusted, but not shocked.

When Breitbart was given access to the White House press pool, while Trump slammed legitimate media, it was other-worldly, but again, expected. He was paying back his loyal campaign minions. They had acted as his little stormtroopers, helping amass the Trumpidian faithful in his march against conservatism, so this was their bone.

Apparently, amid suspicions that Bannon’s position in the administration may be giving them an unfair advantage, the Capitol Hill standing committee, who determine who gets permanent press credentials, have determined that Breitbart will not have permanent or official access to the White House press gallery.

They’ve been able to obtain daily, temporary access, but repeated attempts to be made a fixture in the gallery have been rebuffed.

According to the Washington Examiner:

The committee voted Tuesday morning in favor of “tabling the application and discontinuing temporary credentials without any extension,” according to the Daily Beast.

How frustrating!

Add to that another report of an invitation to some conservative reporters, which included Breitbart, to hob-knob with White House officials on Monday night, that turned into something less than they’d hoped for, and it’s almost like grinding salt into the wound:

Representatives from Newsmax, Breitbart, Townhall, The Daily Caller and radio voices like Larry O’Connor and John Fredericks mingled with White House press secretary Sean Spicer, chief strategist Stephen Bannon, chief of staff Reince Priebus and the White House communications team.

Reporters were asked to surrender their cellphones before entering the Roosevelt Room, a meeting room in the West Wing across from the Oval Office. Their phones were stored in lockers outside the room.

One source said White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre explained that phones had to be kept out because the Roosevelt Room is a SCIF, or a sensitive compartmented information facility, where officials view classified information.

After the briefing with the president, reporters were told that the conversation had actually been on the record and that they were free to attribute quotes to Trump and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who was also in attendance.

They didn’t have their phones or any way to record what was said, so of course, they fell all over themselves, in a scene that I’m sure resembled something from the Keystone Cops, trying to get to their phones and record from memory the comments heard in the briefing.

I’m sure it was quite entertaining for somebody.

How this slow backing away from the core that elevated Trump to the White House ultimately plays out remains to be seen.

I can’t imagine an automatic turning on Trump from his base, but somewhere, somehow, I can absolutely feel this grating, gnawing sense of betrayal, as they watch the fruit of their labors taken away and given to somebody else.

Schadenfreude, everybody.

Hannity (Wrongly) Lumps His Accuser In With “Liberal Fascists” Attempting To Silence Conservative Voices

That was quick.

Seriously, I give Sean Hannity one day of grace, siding with him over the naked opportunism of Debbie Schlussel, who obviously felt she’d get in on the dogpile going on over at Fox News and casually tell a tale of being propositioned by Hannity years ago.

Schlussel claimed she was blackballed from appearing on Fox News after refusing to go back to Hannity’s hotel with him.

Hannity planted his feet and announced he’d be taking legal action, which brought a hasty “clarification,” in which she said she had never meant to suggest he sexually harassed her.

Hannity was right in all of this, and for all the issues I have with Hannity, what’s right is right, and in this instance, he was right.

Then he turns around and says something that, while basically right, adds that twist that just makes me shake my head and go right back to considering him a major tool.

On his Monday night show, Hannity gave an opening monologue about “liberal fascism” and the effort to silence conservative voices.

To an extent, he has a point.

Hannity said there have always been efforts during his time at Fox News to “smear and slander and besmirch” him. But those efforts have not been as “intense and completely insane” as they are now, he added.

“It has only gotten worse in the age of President Trump,” Hannity said.

“Now, it’s no secret I have been in supporter of the president and of course his policies. And quite simply, these liberal fascists — they can’t stand conservative voices.”

Let’s be fair. The “age of Trump” has caused Hannity to come completely unhinged. Anybody that has seen his hateful, abusive rants on social media in defense of Trump can back me up on that.

I actually watched in disbelief as he went on a rabid attack against Bill Kristol, after Kristol had complimented Trump!

Hannity took after him like a jealous lover, howling that because Kristol had been critical of Trump previously, he couldn’t compliment him now.

Had Trump taken notice of Kristol’s compliment and publicly thanked him, Hannity would have likely lapsed into a deep depression and disappeared into the hills, to live as a hermit, communicating only through occasional, rambling manifestos to local news outlets.

His Twitter commando attitude aside, Hannity is right to stand up for himself, where warranted, and Schlussel’s insinuation definitely warranted a firm response.

“Now, in this fiercely divided and vindictive climate, I will no longer allow slander to go unchallenged, as I see this to be a coordinated effort afoot to silence those with conservative views,” he said.

“I will fight every single lie about me about any and all legal means available to me as an American.”

Ok. Good. I’m still with you here, Sean.

He said there is coordinated attempt to “silence the voice of every outspoken conservative in this country.” Everyone who publicly supported President Trump is a target, he said, and called for people to stop silencing opposition voices.

 

“Now, I’m not the only one that these liberal fascist routinely targeted. Like me, conservatives are monitored on radio and TV, every word they say — in contrary to the alt radical left stated position — they’re so open-minded, liberals,” he said.

BOOM.

Lost me.

Do I believe liberals are targeting conservative voices?

They absolutely are. This is nothing new.

You cannot understate the subversive nature of liberals. They believe the ends justify the means. They are every bad guy in every action movie, with insidious motives and corrupt methods for getting what they want.

They think they are the good guys, however, which is what makes them so awful.

That being said, Hannity twisted his message by labeling Debbie Schlussel’s lie as an attack by a “liberal fascist.”

She’s not a liberal. Nothing in her history suggests it.

She’s a right-leaning whack-o. In fact, many of her past rants could be interchanged with Hannity’s and few would know the difference.

She has a problem with Hannity and Fox News, in general. It may very well be because of not being asked back as a guest on Hannity’s program, but she is definitely not a liberal.

Hannity had a point to make with his rant against “liberal fascism,” but to wrap up what is currently going on between he and Schlussel and that particular narrative is just false.

It’s as false as his attempt to build a wall between Trump’s supporters and those who bring up the “alt-right” by trying to coin the phrase, “alt-left.” There is no alt-left. The left are just the left and have always been the left.

If Hannity wants to make a statement and have it stick, he needs to make sure he’s not putting false labels on people, in order to push a narrative. This election season and the aftermath has apparently made labeling people falsely a thing.

Case in point: I’m probably one of the most conservative individuals you will ever encounter, having spent pretty much all of my adult life standing up for smaller government, gun rights, pro-life issues, states rights over federal intrusion, traditional marriage, and religious freedom. Because of my very vocal opposition to Donald Trump, however, I’ve been called a liberal, told George Soros pays me, I’m a Hillary Clinton supporter, and any number of absolutely laughable accusations, completely disconnected from reality.

Debbie Schlussel is a right wingnut who did a bad thing. Simple as that.

OOPS: State Dept Removes Blog Touting Mar-a-Lago From Website

Yesterday I told you about the State Department website, Share America, and how they seemed to be advertising President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort.

Apparently, there was enough of a stink raised that the post – which had been up since April 4 – was deleted from the site.

The blog, initially posted on Share America, a State Department platform used for sharing what it describes as “compelling stories” detailed the history of Trump’s “Winter White House.”

It immediately led to concerns that the U.S. government was promoting Trump’s private resort.

“The intention of the article was to inform the public about where the President has been hosting world leaders,” the web page now reads. “We regret any misperception and have removed the post.”

You would think that some things would just jump out at them as obvious.

I’m even willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, in regards to the background and history of the estate being interesting enough to bring up, in some context, but given that it is a for-profit business for the president, caution should have prevailed in this matter. He’s already being closely scrutinized for any hint of using his office as president to enrich himself.

CNN’s Jake Tapper pointed out to the troubling optics yesterday.

“Well, they’re just shamelessly promoting his products on U.S. government, taxpayer-financed websites. And we know that Mar-a-Lago has benefited from President Trump being elected president,” he said on CNN’s “The Lead” on Monday.

The facts are, Trump doubled the membership fee to Mar-a-Lago after winning the presidency, so he’s definitely cashing in on his new position.

Trump can’t afford to make these kinds of ethical miscalculations, and neither can members of his administration.

Moving forward, let’s hope this was just an error in judgment that doesn’t happen again.

SHAMELESS: Jake Tapper Slams State Department For Advertising Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Resort

Well, this does look a bit… funky.

CNN’s Jake Tapper took exception today to a post on the State Department’s “Share America” website that appeared to promote Mar-a-Lago.

“Well, they’re just shamelessly promoting his products on U.S. government, taxpayer-financed websites. And we know that Mar-a-Lago has benefited from President Trump being elected president,” Tapper said on CNN’s “The Lead.”
The U.S. Embassy in London published a blog post touting Trump’s exclusive Palm Beach, Fla., resort as a place that has “become well known as the President frequently travels there to work or host foreign leaders.”

The post was actually put up on April 4, but apparently, somebody just noticed it and found it questionable.

The website is supposed to share “compelling stories and images that spark discussion and debate on important topics.”

I suppose an argument could be made for Mar-a-Lago’s history and how now that it’s being used by a U.S. president, it could be a nice conversation starter.

The resort was built in the late 1920s by an heiress, Marjorie Merriweather Post, and willed to the U.S. government in 1973. It was her desire to see the resort used for hosting foreign dignitaries, apparently.

The government returned the property to the estate of Post and Trump bought it in 1985, turning it into a luxury resort of the rich and richer.

The problem is an ethical one. Again.

Trump doubled the membership fee to the club ($200,000) when he won the presidency, so he’s benefiting from the renewed interest in the club, especially from the rich and affluent who want to be able to say they spend their weekend hob-knobbing with the POTUS.

“Now we are learning that the State Department promoted the property and still is promoting the property on websites describing it as, ‘the winter White House, and a prominent place where President Trump hosts foreign leaders,’ ” Tapper said.

Trump has hosted Chinese President Xi Jinping, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and a host of American lawmakers at the resort, since becoming president.

Whatever the intentions of the State Department, this does nothing to quell the concerns of those who believe Trump has not done enough to divest himself from his businesses, and by advertising Mar-a-Lago abroad, it could present an issue where foreign dignitaries try to buy access to the president by buying memberships to the club.

The acting spokesman for the State Department, Mark Toner, has said he had no idea the post was on the website.

Ivanka Trump Joins World Bank President In Op-Ed Addressing Gender Pay Gap, Women Empowerment

Ivanka Trump and the president of the World Bank, Jim Yong Kim joined in an op-ed to push for economic empowerment for women.

There’s a guesstimated 170-year timeline for women to close the (debunked) gender pay gap, which is an unacceptable stretch for Ivanka and Kim.

In the Financial Times on Monday, they wrote:

“We need to increase access to finance, redistribute care work, accelerate progress to financial inclusion, and offer programmes that train female entrepreneurs and help them access higher value markets,” the two wrote.

“We need to develop new legal and regulatory frameworks to boost women’s growth and productivity. The right skills training enhances women’s capacity to manage their businesses. And mentorship opportunities and access to networks bring learning opportunities and connections to capital and markets.”

The op-ed cites research that shows billions could be added to the global economy by “creating an enabling environment” for women in the work place.

“Our challenge now is to work together — in public and private sectors — to move decisively to invest in women worldwide,” Trump and Kim wrote.

As a woman, that sounds awesome. Empowerment. I’m all about that.

As a sane person, however, I know that the gender pay gap boogeyman… OOPS… boogeywoman is a myth.

Yes, women tend to be paid less, but it’s the variables, such as the shorter hours they choose, in order to be with their families, or time taken off for maternity leave that accounts for the disparity.

Ivanka and other liberal feminists would have you believe that if Johnny takes a job as a widget maker and Jenny takes a job as a widget maker, both in the same company, that Johnny will be making 33 cents more on the dollar than Jenny.

That’s not reality.

The paychecks may look different at the end of the month, based on how much time they put into making those all-important widgets, but at an hour-per-hour match, the pay is the same.

Ivanka will be attending the W20 summit on women’s economic empowerment in Berlin, later this week.

In the meantime, Prager U has several excellent videos exposing the gender pay gap fallacy.

It’s been shown here before, but it’s worth checking out, again.

BACKTRACK: Hannity Accuser Now Wants To Clarify Her Story

HI-LARIOUS!

Something about the threat of legal action really takes the steam out of a good fairytale.

So I had to give golf claps to Fox News’ Sean Hannity earlier today for standing his ground and vowing to take legal recourse against attorney and blogger, Debbie Schlussel.

Schlussel saw an opportunity to get a little revenge against Hannity, who she seems to have a real bug up her nose about, plus grab a few headlines by piling on with the claims of misogyny against a Fox News star.

I’ll admit, I have my issues with Hannity, but fair is fair, and Schlussel’s ridiculous story is paper thin, and very likely done with malice and self-interest.

To recap, Schlussel was a guest on an Oklahoma radio program on Friday. She told a tale of appearing somewhere a few years back with Hannity, and being asked back to his room, later.

She claims that when she rejected his offer, she was no longer asked to appear on his show.

Hannity spoke about his plans to sue in a statement given to The Blaze, and Schlussel suddenly finds the need to “clarify.”

Speaking with LawNewz.com, Schlussel wants people to know that while what she said was true, she wasn’t accusing Hannity of sexual harassment.

“I would never accuse him of that. Sexual harassment has a special meaning under the law, and I would never accuse him of that,” Schlussel, an attorney herself, said.  Schlussel said the interaction happened in the early 2000’s when Hannity was in Detroit taping a show.

“He tried to get me to go back to the hotel after the show after he and his executive producer Bill Shine treated me horribly,” she said on the radio program. Schlussel later clarified that it wasn’t his hotel room, but rather his hotel. She told LawNewz.com that she did go on the show following the incident, but after that was “banned from Fox News.”

“I never thought I was sexually harassed by Sean Hannity, I thought he was weird and creepy not someone I liked,” Schlussel said.

Well, that’s good to know. You maybe should have either been very clear about that, to begin with, or better yet, kept your mouth shut, because if you hadn’t meant to imply there was some form of harassment there, there would have been no reason to bring it up.

Seriously, the conversation was about sexual harassment suits against Fox News personalities.

Schlussel responded to Hannity’s legal threats, tellingLawNewz.com she believed they were “laughable,” and that she is also contemplating countersuing him based on his statements on Sunday in which he called her a “serial harasser.”

“It’s defamatory,” Schussel said, “Everything I said was true, and truth is an absolute bar to defamation. He on the other hand has a murky record on truth.”

Okay, wacky lady. Okay.

Schlussel has a history of going after Hannity, so I think if his kids have any bunnies, they may want to keep a close eye on them. I see some boiling pots at the Hannity household.

In AP Interview, Trump Says The DNC Have Themselves To Blame For Russian Hack

Yeah, I don’t know where he’s going with this.

In part of his interview with the Associated Press, Trump says Democrats have only themselves to blame for the hacks that led to WikiLeaks revealing all their deep, dirty secrets to the world, ahead of the 2016 election.

According to Trump, the Democratic National Committee didn’t have the “proper defensive devices” in place to stave off hacking attempts.

Seriously, I don’t know if Hillary was using McAfee or Norton on her server at home, but…

As for WikiLeaks and Trump’s declaration of love for them on the campaign trail (which he now says wasn’t an indication of his support):

On Friday, Trump took aim at the DNC when asked about Wikileaks’ involvement in the influence campaign, arguing that the DNC did not have the same defenses as the Republican National Committee, which was also unsuccessfully targeted by Russia.

“You know, they tried to hack the Republican, the RNC, but we had good defenses. They didn’t have defenses, which is pretty bad management,” Trump said, referring to the DNC. “But we had good defenses, they tried to hack both of them. They weren’t able to get through to Republicans.”

Actually, I remember very well that Julian Assange… aka… WikiLeaks (because nobody believes there is anyone but him behind the organization), stated that they had hacked the RNC, but that the things they had on Trump were no worse than what he said openly, anyway, so they weren’t worth releasing.

Whether that’s true or not, I can’t say. FBI Director James Comey, however, has said that while there was evidence of past RNC hacks, there was no evidence of recent hacking attempts.

Further in the interview, Trump sought to put to rest any controversy over his support for a site that routinely targets America, but curiously, tends to leave other nations like Russia and Iran alone.

Trump praised WikiLeaks on the campaign trail last year after the organization had published hacked emails from the DNC and Podesta,saying “I love WikiLeaks,” at a rally in Pennsylvania.

Trump told the AP that he was directing attention to the information released, not supporting the organization for leaking it.

“When Wikileaks came out … never heard of Wikileaks, never heard of it. When Wikileaks came out, all I was just saying is, ‘Well, look at all this information here, this is pretty good stuff,’” he said.

“No, I don’t support or unsupport. It was just information,” Trump said when pressed.

This becomes an issue, now that CIA Director Mike Pompeo has blasted WikiLeaks as a “non-state hostile intelligence service” and Attorney General Jeff Sessions has called arresting Assange a “priority.”

The Justice Department inquiry dates back as far as 2010, when WikiLeaks released classified documents stolen by former Army soldier Chelsea Manning.

Trump told the AP that he is not involved in making a decision about pursuing Assange’s arrest.

“I am not involved in that decision, but if Jeff Sessions wants to do it, it’s OK with me,” he said. “I didn’t know about that decision, but if they want to do it, it’s OK with me.”

I told you guys last week about WikiLeaks sniping back at Trump over this particular comment.

Given this new, negative focus on WikiLeaks and Assange, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that there were a new rash of hacking attempts against the RNC.

I hope they have a good firewall set up.

Sean Hannity Vows To Fight His Accuser

When Roger Ailes was first blasted as a total creeper by former Fox personality, Gretchen Carlson, it was like pulling a bottom piece from the tower in a game of Jenga. All the pieces came falling apart, and all of Fox News’ dirty laundry became very public.

Multiple reports of sexual harassment by the elderly CEO of the top-rated cable news network surfaced.

Ailes resigned, amid lawsuits and pressure from Rupert Murdoch, head of Fox’s parent company, 21st Century Fox, and his sons.

It didn’t take long for more stories of this culture of misogyny to come to light.

Fox’s top dog, Bill O’Reilly, was hit hard by allegations of misconduct, paying out $13 million to settle lawsuits by women who claimed mistreatment, and the loss of his long-running, ratings powerhouse show with Fox, “The O’Reilly Factor.”

Some have suggested that there is an effort by the left that has targeted Fox News for destruction, and that may very well be the case, because the latest to be implicated in the reports of bad behavior is Sean Hannity.

Streiff hit on the allegations against Hannity earlier today, but basically, Debbie Schlussel, a lawyer and former guest on Hannity’s program appeared on an Oklahoma radio program last week and accused Hannity of propositioning her.

She claims that after she refused, Hannity no longer invited her on his program.

I’ll note several things.

For starters, her story was a bit thin.

Secondly, unless she had a contract, promising a set number of appearances on a program, not being invited back is not a right, nor a guarantee. Maybe she was just a really poor guest the first time?

Sean Hannity has actually responded to the charge.

Hannity sent this statement to The Blaze:

“LET ME BE CLEAR – THE COMMENTS ABOUT ME ON A RADIO SHOW THIS WEEK by this individual are 100% false and a complete fabrication.

This individual is a serial harasser who has been lying about me for well over a decade. The individual has a history of making provably false statements against me in an effort to slander, smear and besmirch my reputation.

The individual has not just slandered me over the years but many people who this individual disagrees with.

This individual desperately seeks attention by any means necessary, including making unfounded personal attacks and using indefensible and outrageous political rhetoric.

My patience with this individual is over. I have retained a team of some of the finest and toughest lawyers in the country who are now in the process of laying out the legal course of action we will be taking against this individual.

In this fiercely divided & vindictive political climate, I will no longer allow slander and lies about me to go unchallenged, as I see a coordinated effort afoot to now silence those with conservative views. I will fight every single lie about me by all legal means available to me as an American.”

Fighting back. This is new for Fox News, actually. Ailes and O’Reilly just paid off their accusers.

For this reason, I actually believe Hannity.

Yes. Don’t choke on your Cheerios. I’m actually siding with Sean Hannity on something.

It’s warranted, however.

The timing and nature of Schlussel’s claim seems to be one of opportunism, at best. There is blood in the water over at Fox, and the idea that women are always the victim really does put a dent in the notion of the “empowered woman” that the leftists who are so gleefully pushing these stories claim to stand on.

Sometimes women lie.

Schlussel does seem to have a real problem with Hannity. It’s almost obsessive.

She’s previously accused him of scamming the veteran’s charity, Freedom Alliance, by demanding they pay out for private jet services, high priced suites, and other luxury items, in order to get him to attend concerts they put on for our nation’s vets.

Hannity disputed those charges and was backed up by statements from his office, as well as from the Freedom Alliance.

Schlussel seems to be on a vendetta, spurred on by not being invited back to Hannity’s show. I would take her statements with a pretty large grain of salt.

Sean Hannity Hits The New York Times With A Wild Rant

What is he going on about?

Yes, as I know you’ve all been desperately awaiting, there is a new installment to the comic strip life of “Sensei Hannity: Internet Tough Guy.”

Fox News’ Sean Hannity went on an unhinged rant against the New York Times Saturday evening over a report that suggested he privately gives counsel to President Trump on issues like repealing Obamacare.

Apparently, Hannity took offense, which is bizarre. Given his total, cult-like devotion and constant groveling at the altar of Trump, you’d think he’d be immensely flattered to have the world think he had that kind of in with his liege.

Dude, seriously?

That was a cringe-worthy attack, not because he was really sticking it to the New York Times. It was more the kind where you see somebody making a complete jackass out of themselves and they don’t really know it, at the time.

One of the reporters who worked on the piece Hannity found so offensive, Maggie Haberman, tried to calm down Hannity’s frothing rager.

Hannity would not be appeased, nor was he capable of giving a civil response.

This is peak-level Trumpidian cult-speak.

It was so childish and unprofessional, it defies even the most bare essentials of sane discourse. Hannity is lashing out at a report that he may have the president’s ear, while pushing the idea that he knows who the president talks to.

The reality is, Trump sat with Haberman and Glenn Thrush earlier in April for an exclusive interview from the Oval Office.

Speaking of Thrush, he chimed in with his own nugget of information for Hannity to chew on:

Me thinks the sensei doth protest too much.

WikiLeaks To Trump: You Loved Us Once

Total “Fatal Attraction” move, Assange. Not cool.

On Friday, WikiLeaks took a shot at President Trump because, you know, they’re not going to be ignored, or something.

Actually, they were responding to a report that the Trump administration is looking into bringing charges against Assange, as well as other WikiLeaks employees.

That is, if they can find any.

I’ve never actually heard of anyone else with WikiLeaks, except Assange. Have you?

From the Washington Examiner:

Federal investigators said a memo is in the draft stage and they will be looking back as far 2010, when WikiLeaks posted thousands of U.S. Army intel officer Bradley Manning’s stolen files.

The Justice Department also believes it has proof that WikiLeaks played a part in the infamous leak from National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden.

WikiLeaks has been in the news a lot, lately, as they have targeted the U.S. intelligence community with their hacks, and the release of material they claim reveals CIA methods for remotely turning smartphones and smart TVs into surveillance devices.

Their cheeky response was to tweet out a clip of Trump on the campaign trail, when he declared that he loved WikiLeaks.

That was when WikiLeaks was spilling Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee’s secrets to the whole world.

Like a scorned lover.
