Stephen Miller: A Second Thoughts Warrior – Why the Trump team is different from all others

Stephen Miller is President Trump’s senior advisor for policy and has been my friend since he was a student at Santa Monica High School in 2001, taking on his teachers and administrators for failing to respect country and flag in the wake of 9/11.

Steve was raised in a liberal Democratic California household and his second thoughts politically constitute one of the bonds of our friendship, which can serve to illuminate the unique character of this White House – widely misunderstood on the left and right – whose president and chief strategist, Steve Bannon, followed similar paths.

Virtually all Senate Democrats poised to vote against remaining Cabinet picks

Virtually all Democratic senators are expected to vote against President Trump’s picks to lead the departments of Education, Justice, Health and Human Services, Labor and Treasury and his top budget nominee — a historic rebuke of a first-term president’s Cabinet selections.

The Senate is scheduled to continue confirming Trump’s Cabinet nominees this week, with a vote scheduled for Tuesday to approve Betsy DeVos, nominated to run the Education Department. Senators are poised to confirm Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to serve as the next attorney general by the end of the week.

Was Khalid Sheik Mohammed Waterboarded 183 As Claimed By Sen. Diane Feinstein?

A reader asked about this comment by Feinstein, believing it to be exaggerated. She made the remark while quoting Sessions, a Republican senator from Alabama, as saying that waterboarding “was utilized only three times” against detainees held after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Sessions’s remarks appear to refer to the frequent statements by George W. Bush administration officials that only three people were waterboarded: Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, Zayn al-Abidin Muhammed Hussein (better known as Abu Zubaida) and Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri. (Human Rights Watch in 2012 cast doubt on that claim after the Moammar Gaddafi regime fell in Libya and documents and interviews revealed other credible accounts of waterboarding of detainees.)

CBS’s Dickerson Grossly Understates Odds of Terror Attack by Refugees

When CNN and the Washington Post began publicizing a study by the libertarian CATO Institute that portrayed terrorism by refugees as a remote danger to Americans, it was predictable that some would start misquoting the findings, making it sound like an even more remote possibility than the study actually claimed.

Democrats troll Trump with Google Chrome extension that replaces ‘Trump’ with ‘Steve Bannon’

A major Democratic-aligned super PAC trolled President Donald Trump on Monday to make a point about White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon’s influence in the White House.

The super PAC, American Bridge, rolled out a Google Chrome extension that replaces every mention of “Trump” with “Steve Bannon,” a not-so-subtle attempt to show the influence the adviser has in the White House.

Nearly 100 Tech Companies Join Forces In Court To Oppose Donald Trump’s Immigration Ban

The biggest names in Silicon Valley lined up over the weekend to support a high-profile legal battle against President Donald Trump’s recent executive orders banning immigrants from seven mostly Muslim countries. Having already publicly denounced Trump’s orders, which were temporarily blocked last week by a federal judge, leaders in the technology industry joined a friend of the court brief opposing the ban.

California Republicans ask Trump administration to block bullet train funding

California’s House Republicans have asked the Trump administration to block a pending federal grant that will ultimately support the state’s high speed rail project until an audit of the project’s finances is completed.

The letter, signed by all 14 members of the state’s GOP delegation, including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, was sent to Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. It cites cost increases, reductions in the project’s scope and its failure to attract private financing.

Homeland Security chief regrets rapid rollout of Trump travel ban

Homeland Security chief John Kelly told a congressional panel on Tuesday he should have delayed U.S. President Donald Trump’s travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries and on all refugees so he could brief Congress on the executive order.

The temporary ban ignited international protests as the United States revoked 60,000 visas and detained some travelers who landed in the United States unaware the order had been signed while they were in flight.

More Democrats are familiar with Stephen Bannon than Charles Schumer

Stephen K. Bannon, former head of Breitbart and now senior aide to President Trump — it’s been quite a year — has emerged as a favorite target of liberal frustration. Bannon has been depicted as the power-behind-the-Oval-Office in popular and social media, the Svengali driving Trump’s hard-right positions on immigration and everything else.

When Quinnipiac University surveyed Americans to gauge their opinions of public figures, then, it’s not a surprise that Democrats had a broadly unfavorable view of Bannon. The surprises lay elsewhere.

Rahm Emanuel: Too many Dems care more about being right than winning

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has warned Democrats they need to “take a chill pill” and realize that they are not going to take back national power anytime soon.

“It ain’t gonna happen in 2018,” Emanuel said Monday at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business in California. “Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul.”

The Patriots’ Super Bowl victory parade is overflowing with signs mocking Roger Goodell

The Patriots’ Super Bowl 51 victory parade is a celebration of the team’s incredible 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons.

But for many fans, it’s also a celebration of the team’s victory over Roger Goodell, who suspended Tom Brady for four games because of the Deflategate scandal. As a result, anti-Goodell sentiment — on signs, shirts, and in snow-covered Copley Square — is prevalent at the parade.

MSNBC’s Tur Suggests Trump Will Be Responsible for ‘Suspicious Deaths’ of Journalists

MSNBC took its fear mongering smears of the Donald Trump administration to a dark new low Monday afternoon when reporter Katy Tur suggested the president’s war with the media would start racking up actual casualties. During an interview with Nebraska Senator Deb Fischer, a Republican, Tur suggested Trump would take a page from Russian President Vladimir Putin’s playbook and start targeting journalists for death.

Hey, Team Trump: Tell America what’s in the Iran deal

On Jan. 30, 2017, Iran tested a new ballistic missile, seemingly the long-range Khorramshahr. In response, the White House announced sanctions against 25 Iranian individuals and companies. It’s a small reaction to an extraordinary provocation that rips away the curtain obscuring America’s foreign-policy decisions, past and present.

The past first. Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) congratulated the White House on the sanctions, which was a little hypocritical since he was one of the people who caused the problem in the first place.

Republican lawmakers face rising anger at town halls

Republican lawmakers hoping for a break from the politically charged atmosphere in Washington, D.C., have instead been met with protests at home.

From California to Florida, liberal activists are bringing the fight to the doorsteps of GOP lawmakers, marching on the streets of their hometowns and making legislators’ lives miserable as they attend meetings and town halls with constituents.
