Who Is To Blame For Double-Dealing Anti-Trump White House Staffers?

Published

on

Don Trump Jr. said that the advisers that his father President Donald Trump trusts in the White House now comprise a “much smaller group” than the president desires.

“I think there are people in there that he can trust, it’s just — it’s a much smaller group than I would like it to be,” Trump Jr. said in his Good Morning America interview. “It would be easier to get things done if you’re able to fully trust everyone around you. I think that’s a shame.”

Who is to blame for the fact that Resistance members are in the White House and in top administration posts? Who is to blame for the fact that Marc Short of Koch-World is the Trump legislative director (throttling down White House accomplishments in Congress, save for the tax cut)? Who is to blame for the fact that NeverTrumper Raj Shah is deputy press secretary trying to work against Sarah Sanders and throttle down access for the independent press?

Who is to blame for the fact that many administration officials in Washington openly disparage the president and pretend that they are just so needed to prevent Trump from wrecking havoc in the eyes of their happy-hour companions?

Working for a president of the United States is an HONOR and a PRIVILEGE, and far too many dim-witted Republican Establishment types who sat on the sidelines (complicit with Hillary) during the election are making decisions and shaping policy and talking points.

To a large degree, I blame Reince Priebus. Priebus was always a small-time Wisconsite political operator who, like his buddy Paul Ryan, is completely and utterly owned by the globalist anti-Trump Koch Brothers.

I explained Priebus’ duplicity the last time Trump’s base went hard against the President because he signed off on a ridiculous omnibus spending bill that nobody had time to read.

But of course, General John Kelly, Gary Cohn, and others are responsible for shaping personnel, as well as John DeStefano, the Boehner flunky who took charge of many administration hiring decisions.

The Wisconsin establishment is still bad news, and they deserve a whole lot of blame.

Big League Politics reported:

Republican Rep. Ron DeSantis told a Senate Committee adviser that House Speaker Paul Ryan “put the leash” on the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation into Hillary Clinton.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, who headed the Commission, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee, both confirmed to the adviser that Ryaneffectively shut the investigation down, Big League Politics has exclusively learned.

This revelation has big implications for the “Russia” investigation dogging President Donald Trump’s administration. Gowdy took over as one of the leaders of the House Intelligence Committee probe into alleged Trump-Russia campaign collusion after California Rep. Devin Nunes removed himself from the investigation. Nunes angered anti-Trumpers for backing up some of the White House’s claims on surveillance and Russia. The media targeted Nunes for briefing the White House on some of his findings before he announced them publicly. Ryan ultimately decided that Nunes should be taken off the investigation, saying that Nunes’ problems “would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election.” Some Republican congressmen are already bashing Nunes’ claims that the Trump transition team was surveilled.

Gowdy became one of the leaders of the investigation, along with Reps. Mike Conaway and Tom Rooney. But Gowdy’s history of taking orders from Ryan does not bode well for Trump, considering that Ryan is a fierce Trump critic behind the scenes with a very different agenda than the president.

Ryan‘s maneuverings in the Benghazi case occurred at the same time that he was shoring up support to take over from John Boehner as House Speaker.

Gowdy‘s interrogation of Clinton before the Commission was massively hyped but produced little actual results, instead allowing Clinton to come off calm, composed, and prepared while sitting for eleven hours of testimony. Rolling Stone called the hearing “Republicans’ 11-Hour Gift To Hillary Clinton.

Clinton’s testimony occurred in October 2015, before Paul Ryan‘s rival Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee or even won a single primary or caucus.

The hearing also indirectly led to the political downfall of Rep. Kevin McCarthy, who said during a Sean Hannity interview that the purpose of the Commission was to affect Clinton’s poll numbers. McCarthy’s bid to take over as House Speaker collapsed.

Ryan became the preferred House Speaker pick, gaining outgoing Speaker John Boehner’s support, in October 2015, winning majority support on the House Freedom Caucus in a closed-door meeting on October 21.

Clinton testified before Gowdy on October 22, one day later.

Gowdy enjoyed a shortlived stint as a conservative hero on Darrell Issa’s House Oversight Committee, but during the Republican primary he threw in with the neoconservative wing of the party against Donald Trump. Gowdy endorsed Marco Rubio, who has been one of the most forceful anti-Trump Republican senators on the Russia issue.

Vice President Mike Pence Addresses Coronavirus Concerns While Giving Address to CPAC

He started his speech by addressing coronavirus.

Published

on

Vice President Mike Pence started his address on Thursday afternoon to the attendees of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in National Harbor, Md. by talking about the Trump administration’s response to coronavirus.

“President Donald Trump has no higher priority than the health, safety and well-being of the American people,” Pence said, referring to President Trump’s “unprecedented action” to stop the spread of coronavirus.

Pence said that all patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the U.S. have been treated and are doing well, but they will maintain on guard with the Vice President at the helm of the effort in the weeks to come.

“I promise you. We will continue to bring the full resources of the federal government to bear to protect the American people,” he said.

Pence said that the administration is looking to work in bipartisan fashion to stop the spread of coronavirus before launching into his promotion of the Trump/Pence ticket heading into this November’s election.

A group of hecklers were ushered out of the event yelling at Pence, as the crowd chanted “USA! USA! USA!” to drown out their jeers. One of the hecklers appeared to be dressed in a President Trump costume.

Pence compared Trump to former President Ronald Reagan, who addressed CPAC many times before his death in 2004.

“How great is it to have a President of the United States who embraces his role as leader of the free world?” Pence asked the attentive audience, adding that the world knows under Trump that “America stands with Israel.”

He also talked up the administration giving more healthcare options for veterans, increasing border security, supporting law enforcement and ICE against the far left, remaking the federal judiciary, and most importantly standing for the unborn.

“President Trump is the most pro-life president in American history,” Pence said to a massive ovation from the crowd.

Pence then went into promoting President Trump’s economic record, including tax cuts, regulatory reform, an energy policy overhaul, and revamped trade deals. After that, he took shots at the socialists running to oppose President Trump in November, calling their recent CBS News debate a “demolition derby.”

“The truth is today’s Democratic Party has been taken over by radical leftists who want higher taxes, open borders and late-term abortions,” Pence said, adding that the party of Harry Truman and JFK is gone.

“Let’s be clear. It isn’t just about Bernie. Despite what the media loves to tell you, there are no moderates in this Democratic field. Everyone of the other Democrats embraces Bernie’s socialist agenda,” he contended.

Pence made the case it is not enough for President Trump to be re-elected, but a cultural shift must be enacted in order to keep capitalism as the economic system in America for the decades to come.

“It won’t be enough to win the next election. We have to win the next generation,” he said.

He closed his address with an impassioned defense of freedom, using Venezuela as an example of what the U.S. must never become. He expressed his belief that the current generation is one that is embracing freedom more and more.

“Ladies and gentlemen of CPAC 2020, President Donald Trump is the real deal. He is a man who says what he means and means what he says,” Pence said.

“I want to challenge you. I want to challenge all of you… Keep bringing your enthusiasm. Keep bringing this support,” he urged.
