    OK fine. You want a direct answer to the sublimely stupid question you posted? Here it is.

    No, the WH is definitely not carrying out a pogrom vs. Jews. The nearest thing to a neo-Nazi pogromist in the administration, Bannon, has just been kicked out.

    My question to you is, how did you, with your allegedly good grasp of the English language, come to think I even hinted in that direction? Given that nothing in my posting could be interpreted that way by anybody with two functional brain cells?

    Ha, see how easy it was for me to get you to bend to my will?


    You started off my making an incorrect statement, i.e only two Jews remaining the inner circle, and suggesting that was somehow not acceptable. Then you tried to ignore my question on the matter. Now, essentially cornered, you've answered my question. Had you fessed up earlier you wouldn't have wasted everyone's time.


    It was your inability to address your incorrect and ambiguous statement that there were only 2 Jews remaining in Trump's inner circle that was the issue.

    If you can't tell the difference between Jared Kushner's role in Trump's inner circle and the others you mention, you really understand Washington far less than you think you do.

    And that you measure postings by who "bends to your will" is an interesting statement. Your psychology is curiously similar to that of one Donald Trump-or to your average twelve year old male.

    Actually, to anyone more perceptive than you, your idiot question was fully answered already. My last posting, if it was a concession to anything other than my desire for clarity, was a concession to your preteen playground level of comprehension, so much lower than others here.

    I do understand the difference between Kushner and others.
    You called my question stupid, and declined to answer it. I forced you to answer it. By your own words I caused you to answer a stupid question you apparently didn't want to.
    Had a similar experience and result here with jmcc a while back.
    I don't like being taken for a fool, and I don't suffer fools

    Lets please be civil folks.

    As for Trump, the whole thing is like a slow motion car crash... it can only end in tears.

    Sean Spicer says he's one of the most popular guys in Ireland. Who knew!.........


    An agent who met with Sean Spicer told him that the going rate for speeches by most former White House press secretaries ranged from about $20,000 to $30,000. The agent said Spicer, who went elsewhere, thought he could get much more.

    • "He thought he was a much bigger deal than the others," the agent recalled. "His name I.D. is massive — he's obsessed with that. He kept talking about how everyone stops him for selfies — that's one of his go-to lines. It's true, by the way. It happened when I was talking to him."

    At least for now, Spicey's getting the last laugh on President Trump, who mocked him in front of other aides, and members of the press corps, with whom he had an unusually venomous relationship.
    It's unclear whether he'll get a TV deal — he says he doesn't need one. But he told me in an interview that he was mobbed during a recent trip to Europe:

    • "The U.S. press briefing had become part of their nightly viewing," he said. "It was a prime-time show from Europe to the Middle East. ... I'm one of the most popular guys in Ireland."

    Among the possibilities Spicer is weighing:

    • Lucrative consultancies (not lobbying) to give advice to individuals and corporations.
    • Paid appearances on TV shows in Ireland and the U.K.
    • Hollywood productions have reached out.
    • There'll be no tell-all, but he's considering a book detailing lessons learned in crisis communications, at the White House and the Republican National Committee, where he was chief strategist.

    When I asked Sean what he regretted from his time on the job, he replied: "You should read the book."

    A fiery Democrat broke ranks with the D leadership and filed Articles of Impeachment against Donny this week, but later walked away from them.


    The D leadership prefers to keep it's powder dry until after the Mueller report is completed, because it may give them extra ammo.

    Sen. John McCain who earlier this year was diagnosed with the same type of aggressive brain cancer that took Sen Ted Kennedy, gave a highly regarded speech in Philly tonight. Without naming Trump, he stuck the knife in, and twisted it.

    CNN clip here. More discussion of speech than actual speech.

    Still waiting for his decades of expertise on how the media and the Interweb works. Trump is a godsend for the HRC fans in that he gives them something new to whine about each day. There is an almost religious intensity to the way that the HRC supporters still cannot come to terms with the fact that arguably the worst ever political candidate from the GOP won against HRC and did so by playing electoral politics better than her and her campaign.

    C. Flower, I'm touched by your concern for my welfare. I'm fine, never better. Hope you can say the same.

    The only reason I'm dignifying your post with a reply is because the site needs some traffic.


    Your comment has a big fat zero to do with CF's inquiry on my welfare. Struggling to make yourself relevant is rarely successful.


    You've repeatedly offered your simplistic analysis since almost the day after the election. You think you understand US politics, but your comments reveal that in fact youknow didley squat, just as I, after 30 out of Ireland, can no longer comment sharply on the detail of Irish politics.

    You repeatedly assert without offering any evidence that HRC supporters cannot come to terms with the fact that Trump won the election.
    That's pure fantasy. HRC supporters may not like that Trump won, but they accept it


    RNY and myself voted for HRC, not because we are or were supporters, but because she was the only one capable of denying Trump access to the WH.

    Isn't PW honoured?

    Upthread, you posted this.
    You called my question stupid, and declined to answer it. I forced you to answer it. By your own words I caused you to answer a stupid question you apparently didn't want to.
    Had a similar experience and result here with jmcc a while back.
    Just because you get a daily feed of headlines from various news organisations, it doesn't make you a journalist. Posting these recycled feeds to websites doesn't make you a journalist.

    You've repeatedly offered your simplistic analysis since almost the day after the election.
    As I said, I'm still waiting for your decades of expertise in the media and the Internet. Not everyone has the same insights into the corridors of power as you. Sometimes simplistic analyses (plural) are justified.

    You think you understand US politics, but your comments reveal that in fact youknow didley squat, just as I, after 30 out of Ireland, can no longer comment sharply on the detail of Irish politics.
    I never claimed to completely understand US politics but you seem to think that simply because you subscribe to daily newsfeeds that you know everything about it.

    You repeatedly assert without offering any evidence that HRC supporters cannot come to terms with the fact that Trump won the election.
    That's pure fantasy. HRC supporters may not like that Trump won, but they accept it
    The media coverage and the posts on various fora post-election have been fascinating and every day brings a new "story" about what Trump did wrong and how it is going to finish him. And yet he is still POTUS.

    RNY and myself voted for HRC, not because we are or were supporters, but because she was the only one capable of denying Trump access to the WH.
    And it turns out that she wasn't. One of Trump's biggest assets was the attitude that "we know best" that HRC supporters exuded. It was obvious, even from Ireland, that HRC's campaign was in trouble as early as September 2016 but HRC supporters and the HRC campaign continued as if nothing had changed. Trump's cyber campaign was far sharper than you or RNY seemed to realise.
