Interesting article on Steve Bannon, one of the voices competing for the President's sense of direction, if you can wade through the bias of the writier.

Bannon is partly right in his assessment of trade and China.  (More so than the BS over NAFTA IMHO)  WHy do we allow them to steal our intellectual properties?  The President's willingness to take a stronger stance with China and his threat to go further is empowering the US in negotiations over N.K. for one thing.

Reading two sides of this story and with VDH on his side, I will just keep an open mind about the value of this guy.  Here is the Jerusalem Post with military opinion that McMaster is a friend to Israel:  http://www.jpost.com/American-Politics/Former-top-Israeli-security-officers-McMaster-is-a-friend-to-Israel-502294

And I notice a Powerline post taking a second look at what was written previously:

"I continue to have reservations about him. However, I now believe that one of my posts on the subject was unfair and needs to be revisited. "  http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2017/08/mcmasters-obama-holdovers-a-second-look.php

If nothing else I think we can assume he is hundreds of times more competent and more right thinking than whoever would be in that position if the other side had won.

Bannon goes on major NYC liberal's show and gives to  him the next big smash into his boss's face.  Here is Kuttner .  The rest is all over the news.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Kuttner

and completely contradicts Trump on NK

obviously to cover his own back side:

to tell the world  he is not a white supremacist..........
and he does not want to kill Koreans ..........

---------------------------

A world with a Korea and an Iran capable of ICBMs?Huh

No biggie.

It is looking more and more Trump will have to step aside

He can't do this alone.   

It is becoming every man for himself it seems.

Another underling who basically undercuts and disqulifies the President's statements.
Like Bannon undercutting N Korea who he stated won their their nucs and it is over .

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/450831/donald-trump-afghanistan-plan

maybe we should have a threat "the cognitive dissonance of the Trump administration"

I don't know what to make of Tillerson frankly.
when i hear him on TV like the weekend interview with Chris Wallace he sounds very reasonable but then i read very negative things about how he has not really taken over the State Department and just defers to Obama philes
that many positions are simply still not being filled
perhaps he has too much on his plate
I just am not sure .

Tillerson's job is talk and Mattis' job is action.

Trump "speaks for himself" is only controversial if people want it to be:
http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/28/opinions/tillerson-trump-values-miller-sokolsky-opinion/index.html

The incident did not affect him, why be drawn into it?

"They're privately hoping Kushner's attorney was correct that there were fewer than 100 emails sent and received on his personal account. That would suggest, the source argued, that Kushner's email wasn't created to dodge federal record keeping laws — particularly if he was simultaneously using a work account and forwarding those emails to his work email address."

I would think that Price's inability to help get any healthcare legislation through didn't help in his situation any.

Jeanine made an error.  She neglected to ask Jason the obvious question  WHY?  Why is Sessions Trump not pursuing these issues?

Normally I don't watch JJ because a) her voice is really fg grating on my ears, and b) she is a mental mediocrity.

However I did catch exactly this segment because it happened to be on when I turned the TV on and I heard what Chaffetz was saying.  Overall, I like him and given his Congressional background I think he brings quite a bit to FOX.

POTH = Pravda on the Hudson

The scandal of it all!  Wined and dined at a steakhouse inside the Trump hotel conniving to destroy the environment.    rolleyes

He must have blown off the the *Green's lobbies* dinner offers to  go to the local vegetarian salad bar for dinner.   grin

Just think of all the trees that were murdered by that stinking genocidal POTH over the years.    cry

The message vs. messenger.
Victor Davis Hanson, always worth a read.
https://amgreatness.com/2017/10/09/message-v-messenger-the-trump-enigma/

VDH: "...did any recent past Republican nominee—forget Trump’s motivations or questions about his relative sincerity—even run on the premise that working Americans were ignored and losers in the redirects of globalization, open borders, and outsourcing and offshoring? Or that consequently they deserved empathy and a second-chance at the American dream? Was there a chance that Trump saw not just a political opening but an injustice perpetrated against political outcasts deserving of concern in a way that other more politically qualified and supposedly empathetic candidates of 2016 did not?"
----------
[Doug] I supported Rubio and others supported Cruz.  There is  a very good chance neither would have broken the 'blue wall'  as Trump did, or run the table on the swing states to win.  The obstacles to restoring this country right now are a few easily identifiable individuals in the Senate.  Trump, with all his warts, is not the problem (at this point).

New Trump strategy to send everything over to Congress with a order to fix or come up with a plan?
