How Joseph McCarthy henchman Roy Cohn became Donald Trumps mentor.

That Roy Cohn.

Roy Cohn, the lurking legal hit man for red-baiting Sen. Joe McCarthy, whose reign of televised intimidation in the 1950s has become synonymous with demagoguery, fear-mongering and character assassination. In the formative years of Donald Trump’s career, when he went from a rich kid working for his real estate-developing father to a top-line dealmaker in his own right, Cohn was one of the most powerful influences and helpful contacts in Trump’s life.

Over a 13-year-period, ending shortly before Cohn’s death in 1986, Cohn brought his say-anything, win-at-all-costs style to all of Trump’s most notable legal and business deals. Interviews with people who knew both men at the time say the relationship ran deeper than that—that Cohn’s philosophy shaped the real estate mogul’s worldview and the belligerent public persona visible in Trump’s presidential campaign.

Here is transcript of Conway/ Chuck Todd interview..

One way to avoid listening to her voice, is seeing the transcript....and then watching video with no volume if you want to check out body language.


Trump wont release tax returns, Kellyanne Conway says:

WASHINGTON —— President Donald Trump will refuse to release his tax returns, abandoning a campaign promise that he would do so after an audit of them is finished, an aide said Sunday.

“The White House response is that he’s not going to release his tax returns. We litigated this all through the election. People didn’t care. They voted for him,” Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the president, said on ABC’s “This Week.”

After Conway’s remarks, the website WikiLeaks called on leakers to provide it with copies of Trump’s tax returns.

Note to Trump: size DOES matter, eh?

Conway: Trump administration will "rethink" relationship with the press

Jim Wright has excellent reminder for Conway:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, OR OF THE PRESS; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."
- First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America

Why is the Press included in that Amendment?

Why is the Press the ONLY commercial undertaking, the ONLY private enterprise, the ONLY profession, called out in the Constitution and given an enumerated right?
The Press was granted freedom as an enumerate right specifically because it is their duty to be the watchdog of liberty.

It is NOT government's job to determine its relationship to the press.

It is the Press's DUTY to hold government to account.


There is a real gofundme to buy Spicer a suit that fits!

Sean Spicer started his new job as White House Press Secretary today but, clearly, he had to borrow his dad's suit.

Help Sean buy a new suit that actually fits him so that he wont be so grumpy at work all the time.

The proceeds for this will absolutely go towards buying Sean Spicer a new suit in his size and will not be donated to Planned Parenthood under any circumstances.


Could Trump and the mrs look any less happy?? (pic)

Trump just fired the the head of the National Nuclear Security Administration and his deputy

as of noon January 20th, the NNSA won’t have appointed leadership – which means that, as of noon January 20th, NNSA will be hamstrung. The career civil servants and scientists (that is, people hired rather than appointed) will continue doing their job, but they won’t have an advocate to secure a budget from Congress and they won’t be able to tackle any new directives because:

the legislation authorizing the NNSA specifically prohibits non-NNSA officials from managing NNSA employees—agency staffers are only allowed to take orders from Klotz and Creedon or their (nonexistent) replacements.

Given Trump’s bombastic and erratic statements regarding the US nuclear arsenal, this situation should concern everyone.

It is not, as is so commonly said right now, normal.
