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.
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.
Biden White House Makes YouTube Upload of Inaugural Speech ‘Unlisted’ After Being Flooded With Dislikes
The Inaugural Address wasn’t well received.
Joe Biden’s White House staff privatized an upload of his inaugural address from the White House YouTube page, after the video was rationed with a wave of dislikes.
As of late Wednesday night, Biden’s Inaugural Address has more than 17,000 dislikes, and less than 4,000 likes. Sensing that the public wasn’t responding positively, the Biden administration made the video “unlisted” some time after its initial streaming.
In a legally questionable development, the Biden White House staff have also disabled comments on the Inaugural Address. Court rulings previously forced the Trump administration to unblock fanatic liberal reply guys on Twitter, with judges ruling that they had the right to engage with the President on the platform.
The inaugural address is accessible here.
The poor reaction may have come in part from the existing YouTube subscriber demographic of the White House channel, which was primarily composed of Trump supporters. Other uploads of Biden’s Inaugural Address on the YouTube channels of mainstream media networks have a more favorable like-to-dislike ratio.
The takedown of the video could ultimately be challenged under a 2018 court ruling establishing presidential social media accounts as public forums, with comments enabled. Biden will have to face criticism- even on his official internet presence- as President.
