Washington Post Quotes McCain Flunky That Passed On Debunked Trump Dossier

Published

on

Neoconservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin recently quoted the neocon scholar who passed on the discredited “Trump dossier” to Sen. John McCain, who handed it to FBI director James Comey.

The debunked dossier, compiled by British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, was brought to the attention of McCain. It was former Bush State Department functionary David J. Kramer, a former senior fellow at Bill Kristol’s Project for a New American Century and now a senior director at the McCain Institute, who obtained the dossier in England and gave it to McCain. A pro-Clinton firm called Fusion GPS was integrally involved in some way in the spreading of the dossier, prompting increased scrutiny of the firm in recent days.

As Big League Politics exclusively reported, McCain watched the Election Night results in November with fellow neocon senator Lindsey Graham. When Graham said, “Well, now we’re going to have to deal with this guy (Trump) for four years,” McCain replied, “No. He’s going to have to deal with us.”

Reading Jennifer Rubin is the easiest way to piece together how the neocons operate, not because her articles are interesting or meritorious in and of themselves (they’re not), but because she sloppily exposes the in-plain-sight neocon networks that work together to undermine Trump and brazenly think that no one will expose them.

Kramer just happens to get quoted in Rubin’s work alongside McCain.

Here’s an excerpt from Rubin’s June 20 piece “Maybe Tillerson and Trump will finally understand why human rights matter”: (emphasis added):

And yet with regard to North Korea and Cuba, Trump’s words have much less effect than they would had he maintained a robust, consistent stance on human rights. “The administration has spoken out on human rights in Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, even Iran,” notes human rights expert and former State Department official David Kramer. “But the president’s embrace of Putin, Erdogan, Duterte, Sisi and Gulf leaders, his explicit statement in Riyadh that the United States will not ‘lecture’ others regarding human rights, and the secretary’s marginalization of human rights and democracy in his various remarks undermine U.S. efforts to advance human rights around the world.” He adds, “Whereas the previous administration showed little interest in the promoting human rights at the highest levels, the current one shows actual disdain for it. That demoralizes those struggling for an improvement in human rights in challenging places around the globe.”

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
