DAVID AXELROD SLAMS NYT’S ‘SNIDE’ SEAN SPICER EDITORIAL

Former presidential adviser David Axelrod on Saturday slammed The New York Times for its “snide” editorial on Sean Spicer’s abrupt resignation Friday as White House press secretary, saying that “criticisms are fair but snarkiness makes it read like a hissy fit.”

DAILY SHOW WRITERS CLAIM TO BE ‘FACTUALLY ACCURATE’

TRUMP SUGGESTS AG, SPECIAL COUNSEL SHOULD INVESTIGATE CLINTON’S RUSSIA SCANDALS, COMEY LEAK

In the wake of a new report by the Washington Post claiming to reveal Attorney General Jeff Sessions communicated with a top Russian official during the 2016 campaign, President Donald Trump suggested the attorney general and Special Counsel Robert Mueller should investigate several alleged scandals committed by Hillary Clinton and one by former FBI Director James Comey.

--TheBlaze--

Editorial Comment

Since the Special Counsel is, by law, supposed to investigate crimes, and there’s no credible allegations of crimes by the Trump team, the investigation should be focused on real crimes, like the leaks and the email shenanigans by Bill Clinton’s enabling wife. - BK


TRUMP TURNS UP THE HEAT ON SENATE REPUBLICANS OVER HEALTH CARE BILL

“Asylum seekers”? That’s the new “politically correct” term for illegal immigrants? - BK


REPUBLICANS EMBRACE TAX HIKE TARGETING DEMOCRATIC STATES

Republicans aren’t usually big on raising taxes, but they’re really eager to eliminate the federal deduction for state and local taxes.

(Posted Saturday, July 22, 2017 )   <Read it>

--NewsMax.com (AP)--

Editorial Comment

It’s hypocritical for Democrats to oppose this because coupled with doubling the standard deduction, it would mean that the people being “targeted” are pretty well off, and in Democrat vernacular, that translates to “rich”. - BK


DEMOCRATS ANNOUNCE NEW SLOGAN, AND IT SOUNDS A LOT LIKE A PIZZA MOTTO

The Democratic party has been trying to rebrand itself after the disastrous 2016 election that saw both the executive and legislative branches fall to Republicans, but their progress might be stymied by a very familiar slogan they just chose.

FOUNDER OF FIRM BEHIND THE ‘TRUMP DOSSIER’ REFUSES SUBPOENA TO TESTIFY, WILL PLEAD THE FIFTH

The co-founder of the firm that paid for the creation of the infamous ‘Trump dossier’ said Friday that he would not be fulfilling a request to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee and would be asserting his fifth amendment right to avoid self-incrimination.

Editorial Comment

Pleading the Fifth Amendment means that your refusal to testify cannot be used against you in a court of law. The court of public opinion is a different matter altogether. - BK


ARTICLE V CONVENTION ADVOCATE ADMITS 1 DOWNSIDE TO PLAN

There’s a fundamental problem in Washington, according to Tom Coburn. The American people keep sending representatives to the nation’s capital thinking they can fix the country’s problems, but instead those elected representatives become part of Washington. They seek not to fix America’s problems but simply to hold onto power, thereby breaching the trust of the people who sent them there.

I read through this a couple of times and am unable to find the “downside” Sen. Coburn is supposedly admitting. - BK

STATE INSTRUCTS SCHOOLS TO ‘SEGREGATE’ STUDENTS WHO FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE WITH TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS

A recently approved Minnesota Department of Education “toolkit” instructs schools to isolate students who are concerned about sharing bathrooms and locker rooms with transgender students.

(Posted Saturday, July 22, 2017 )   <Read it>

--TheBlaze--

Editorial Comment

This is classic ‘liberalism’:

“Schools should work with transgender and gender nonconforming students to ensure that they are able to access needed facilities in a manner that is safe, consistent with their gender identity and does not stigmatize them,” the toolkit states. “Privacy objections raised by a student in interacting with a transgender or gender nonconforming student may be addressed by segregating the student raising the objection provided that the action of the school officials does not result in stigmatizing the transgender and gender nonconforming student.”

There’s no mention of any concern about stigmatizing students who are made to feel uncomfortable by this gender-bending anti-science nonsense. - BK

Editorial Comment

Any college guilty of this should be barred from receiving any money from the federal government, and that should include student loan money. - BK


Selected Commentary and Analysis

THE ART OF THE SELF-DESTRUCTION

Commentary by Derek Hunter

Did you enjoy “Made In America Week”? Did you even know it was “Made In America Week”? Well, it was. But thanks to President Donald Trump’s inability to get out of his own way and maintain any semblance of message discipline, the week-long celebration of American manufacturing went about as successfully as “Infrastructure Week.” Don’t remember that either? That’s the problem.

IF YOU’RE ILLEGAL AND YOU VOTE, IT’S ADIOS AMIGO!

Commentary by Wayne Allyn Root

Thirty-four hundred Colorado citizens just quickly and quietly dropped off the voting rolls. I know the reason why. Because President Trump is investigating voter fraud in Colorado (and every other state too).

FEMINISTS DESTROY THEIR OWN CAUSE BY DIMINISHING SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS’ SUCCESS

Commentary by Sarah Taylor

With Friday’s appointment of Sarah Huckabee Sanders as the new White House press secretary, it’s never been more evident that liberal feminists are selecting their Joan of Arcs based on their political slant rather than on the fact that they are women.

LEAKED CBO NUMBERS: 73% OF GOP ‘COVERAGE LOSSES’ CAUSED BY INDIVIDUAL MANDATE REPEAL

Commentary by Avik Roy

In the national debate over the GOP health reform proposals, one data point has stood about above all others: the estimate, from the Congressional Budget Office, that more than 20 million people would “lose” coverage as a result. And there’s been an odd consistency to the CBO’s projections.
