Bad news. It appears that even John Kelly is getting out of his depth. . What chief of staff would ever say: “Unless things change, I’m not quitting. I’m not getting fired.” Or Kelly insisting Trump wants to get rid of nuclear weapons, despite the summer meeting that caused Tillerson to call Trump a moron when Trump proposed increasing nuclear arms, or a Trump tweet that “The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes”. . Kelly had been maintaining dignity by avoiding outright lies, but… Read more »

Last week the NYT laid out reasons that decertifying Iran compliance is stupid. . • It ignores that the deal is working. • It sends the wrong message to Iran, and that’s dangerous. • It doesn’t help in the fight against the Islamic State. • It ignores the complexity of the region. • It undermines trust in America and the country’s ability to negotiate in the future. • It would alienate our allies and make a bad situation with North Korea even worse. . Why should North Korea, or anyone else for that matter, negotiate with the US on anything,,… Read more »

Trump announced an executive order last night ending Obamacare cost sharing payments, a move that will lead insurers to pull out of existing marketplaces and prohibitively expensive premiums for folks making 100% to 250% of the federal poverty line. … Trump’s grand strategy appears to be “deliberately sabotage the ACA to force Democrats to the table on repeal/replace” and he’s already sent some tweets this morning aimed at the Democrats. What Trump probably doesn’t know is that Democrats and Republicans were already working on actual fixes to Obamacare. This latest move from Trump destroys those efforts. Most importantly, by taking… Read more »

“Very proud of my Executive Order which will allow greatly expanded access and far lower costs for HealthCare. Millions of people benefit!”
.
“Health Insurance stocks, which have gone through the roof during the ObamaCare years, plunged yesterday after I ended their Dems windfall!”
.
Yep, premiums will be going up because insurers were making too much money.

At least you acknowledge that I’m whupping you. It’s like I’m Federer and you’re some crackpot with creaky knees that hangs around the public courts all day.

It doesn’t matter. It’s like water off a ducks back. We’ll have another misguided, misinformed, deceptive, fake news-as-definitive evidence entry tomorrow or the next day. The “winning” isn’t in the text, it’s in the action.

A part of me wishes that Trump could follow through with his threats to punish fake-news outlets. The vast majority of RW media would (or should) get shut down first.
Of course this is dangerous and (hopefully) not actionable so I’ll just have to console myself that the mainstream news annoys him so much.

Trump’s refusal to certify the Iran deal is a move designed solely to soothe his delicate and fragile ego. Corker was right, the White House is an adult daycare center.

I have a colleague who does body guarding work in Hollywood. He says many male stars and executives are literally shaking in their boots as a result of this Weinstein expose. According to him, this is just the beginning of what will come out!

Good. As I have been saying, it’s not 1963 anymore. James Bond would be sacked within 30 days of start date in this millennium.

I’m hoping someone asks the White House how many sexual assault claims Donald Trump has settled.
