The Spy in the White House, the Dogs in the Manger - American Greatness
https://amgreatness.com/2018/09/05/the-spy-in-the-white-house-the-dogs-in-the-manger/

Not for the first time, what’s going on in Washington brings to mind not the late Roman Empire, but the early one—the Julian line that began with Caesar, passed through Augustus and Tiberius, and then degenerated into the reigns of Caligula, Claudius, and ended with Nero. As the Republic morphed into the Empire, the Senate receded in importance, as did the twin consuls, annually elected. Powerful women—the mothers, wives, and mistresses of the emperors—wielded great power. And yet, in the end, nearly all died unnatural deaths, assassinated (all but Augustus, in fact), murdered, executed, or forced to suicide. To spare you reading Gibbon in his magnificent entirety: the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire was written in the stars, right from the start, just as Shakespeare said.

The Left and its allies in the media would have us think—as this op-ed is clearly meant to do—that Trump is some combination of Claudius and Nero, a mad king barely restrained by his courtiers. “Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back,” the unknown author writes. “Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis.”

--“Be sure about your answer, sir,” Harris asked Kavanaugh.--

1. That's not a question so she didn't ask anything.
2. It is an age old trick translated loosely as "I got nothin, but if I act dramatic maybe I can make you nervous."
If you have something you slip the question in almost as an after thought and spring the trap after the answer, not with a neon warning sign beforehand.

Ah.

"14 Words" is a reference to the most popular white supremacist slogan in the world: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.". The slogan was coined by David Lane, a member of the white supremacist terrorist group known as The Order (Lane died in prison in 2007)

I understand that the Federalist Society composed the larger list of candidates, but Trump has done an exceptional job in the nominations of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.

Oh! I have never heard of David Lane or the Order either. I'm really a bad supremacist.

Because what a perfect way to utterly and forever destroy what’s left of the paper’s credibility—have the whole thing be a hoax perpetrated by Trump or one of his people to prove the paper no longer bothers to verify their sources and will print any fake news that is given to them anonymously.

If this turns out to be true I know a good term we could use to describe the deception game Trump is playing.

"Where do the 14 words come from? Is it the kkk or ...?
New to me, too!"

First i'd heard them *repeated* was during a meeting with campus dissidents in 1992. A protest "shanty" on campus got molotoved in the wee hours.

Students were in an uproar. One reported finding a "Blue Triangle" insignia drawn in colored chalk with those same 14 words inscribed underneath.

At the time the FBI was called in to investigate. Six months later FBI reported to the Univ prez the investigation was still ongoing.

During my time on that campus my life was "threatened" more times than i could count. Each had to be reported (campus policy) to the Bureau. All threats were "revealed" to have come from some secret "white supremacist" group following a threat or racial incident against a black student.

Over time the incidents and the phone threats against me were revealed to be perped by a very sick black student who eventually went down for first degree murder.

There is much "white supremacist" lore out there which people appropriate for their own purposes. Much of it is supplied by "aryan" prizzin groups where that infectious ideology is a means of survival in g-pop.

it serves both sides of the aisle on the outside. appropriating it and using it do smear or "badjacket" a person, place or thing is a way of skewing the debate.

think of how Kamala Harris will be able to use the Kavanaugh hearings, without focusing on Kavanaugh himself, by using the hand signal "evidence" of white supremacist control of the SCOTUS..... sort of a "the nation needs me moment" siren song.

words have consequences in this fight.

I don’t believe it is a set up by the White House.
I just want the vote on Kavanaugh done and the midterms where we win over.
I am sick to death of these people.
Newest threat is releasing classified info about Kavanaugh.
I trace it back to NO I repeat NO consequences for Hillary snd he illegal server containing classified information.
Now the Dems have no fear that they will be prosecuted because Hillary wasn’t.
Who will stop this?
Where are the rules of the Senate?
I want Booker kicked out of the Senate if he breaks the rules and thinks he is above the law
Cory Booker will never be president either.
I agree with DebinGA. On this.

CH, I don't know Garland's record, but if the Federalist Society is on Kavanaugh's side I am not too worried.

500,000 pages of documents released and gar nichts for the goons to pick on. Kavanaugh seems to be very sound.

Can't wait to see what happens when RBG kicks it. I expect the Dems to go Reichstag.Losing any hope of legislation through litigation is going to be a stake in their hearts.

re The Bath House Rat's speaking engagement in Denmark or wherever the F*CK: it's being promo'd
as "An Evening with President Barack Obama."

What a total sh*t bird. His name recognition has already been cemented firmly in the annals of whatever.

He still allows himself to be titled President. His handlers probably insisted upon it.

He's not. I'll be surprised if he doesn't start saying he was the last legitimately elected POTUS.

I started a post and it disappeared. I hope it doesn't reappear. Anyway,

about Judge Kavanaugh. I want to preface my comment with: "I Know Nothing." I'm basing this comment on pure Gladwell 'Blink' reaction. I'm not drawn to Kavanaugh. Especially when he considers Kennedy his hero. Wow. That chills me.

I wish President Trump had chosen that woman who is on his list, can't think of her name.

Kavanaugh's face, there's something about it that looks soft. (For all you people who are going to wince at this comment, sue me. :) He reminds me of John Roberts.

Did Booker also announce he was running for president in 2020 when he decided to intentionally violate the rules?

Booker will rue the day he went rogue.
Just like Rahm Emanuel will leave Chicago in disgrace so too will Booker for thinking we would ever promote him to anything higher than dog catcher.
He has the same hubris as Hillary and is stupid like her as well. His fall from grace will be epic

a counter-opinion to "Sessions resigning as AG":

the declassification that's rumored to be coming soon will santize Sessions' reputation and silence critics.

Sessions stays.

the declassification initiates a complete de-lousing of the DOJ.

Gowdy appointed Deputy AG to ramrod the operation.

Oh, there's something else that bothered me about Kavanaugh's lineup who spoke for him. The female attorney who has argued cases in front of the Supreme Court. She listed her leftist bonafides: Solid Democrat (she sounded leftist, not what we used to think of an honorable opposition.) Voted for Hillary. Can't remember the other leftist causes she mentioned before she prefaced her support of Kavanaugh -- there were several.

It's always nice to have a member of the opposition support you, but I consider people who are and were all in for HRC as part of the elite, the swamp, the whatever you want to call it.

Bunky is now Savotage!!!

Kavanaugh showed some steel last night with Harris. Her gotcha question (first question) really pissed him off. Does anybody know what she was getting at?

I thing Grassley has no choice but to prosecute Booker. BTW the penalty is to be kicked out of the senate. But if the Senators won't follow the rules on classification, and they say they won't, gawd knows what the left will come up with.

OTOH I think Trump should take that advice and declassify everything.

"Just like Rahm Emanuel will leave Chicago in disgrace so too will Booker for thinking we would ever promote him to anything higher than dog catcher.

"

We might not promote him, but he is already a US Senator. Being voted out of the Senate isn't a fall from grace, nor will his decision to leave the Senate by not seeking re-election.

Booker is already in possession of a Golden Key for continued wealth accumulation when he leaves office by one way or the other.

Even as*holes have influence, no matter what their job performance happens to be in the minds of voters. The Revolving Door awaits.

Anyone knows that. Grace is a concern among people with morals. Booker never had either. Can't fall from where ya never was.

my opinion:

no matter what the Lunatic Left Fringe might think of a Black presidential candidate to the extreme left of Barack Obama--- America has fulfilled its obligation to give "black" a shot at the presidency.

Thank DJT for that.

Another thing that would stomp the chances for a black female to become president, as the first twofer "black" and "woman", was Hildo's "first woman candidacy."

Besides, how far toward the center would somebody like Harris have to tack in order to be credible in what's likely to be a large Democratic primary field of preezy candidates. She won't be believable.
