Pushback against Trump, Bergdahl, RNC, and the Alamo

 

Headline from

WashingtonPost.com

“Trump campaigned as one of the world’s greatest dealmakers. But lawmakers find him to be an untrustworthy negotiator.”

Between the Lines

Nope. If Congress does not find President Trump to be a “trustworthy” negotiator, the joke is on them. It’s Congress that the people do not find trustworthy to live up to its promises.

“State Department Reveals 2,800 Huma Abedin Government Documents on Weiner’s Laptop”

Between the Lines

This is wrong on so many levels. Huma Abedin, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s top advisor, was married to Anthony Weiner, now serving time in prison. How is it that the FBI and the State Department had this information and just sat on it?

Not only did Hillary use unsecured email servers, but her right-hand man shared official business on unsecured computers. The persistence of Judicial Watch is paying off. The watchdog group filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department, and after it failed to act, Judicial Watch sued. They are still seeking information about emails during Hillary’s term as secretary of state.

“Bergdahl: Taliban treated me better than US army.”

Between the Lines

Perhaps Bowe Bergdahl should have stayed with the Taliban, as his interviews since coming home would indicate that he is not appreciative of anything that has been done for him.

First of all, in exchange for his release, Obama gave up five hardcore prisoners from Guantanamo. Bergdahl does not even appear to have appreciation for the six Americans who died while trying to rescue him from the Taliban.

“There is a war brewing within the Republican Party that could shape the American political landscape for decades upon decades to come.”

Between the Lines

Certainly things were ripe for a change in the American two-party system. Both parties had become entrenched in Washington politics. President Trump entered the picture as an outsider, not content with doing things the “Washington way.”

This has not set well with party hangers-on and they are fighting him every step of the way -- from both parties. The swamp, as Trump calls the Washington establishment, is determined to remain in charge.

They are doing everything within their power to maintain the status quo, be damned with what “we, the people” voted for.

One man, Steve Bannon, now back at Breitbart, continues to fight to help Trump drain the swamp. The 2018 midterm elections should be interesting. Supposedly, Republican National Committee chairman Ronna McDaniel has indicated that the RNC would help Trump get a stronger majority from within the party.

That remains to be seen, but it would be a welcome move in a splintered party.

“Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush’s ambitious plan to ‘re-imagine’ the Alamo is coming under fresh scrutiny after Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick directed the Senate Finance Committee to delve into state expenditures on the project.”

Between the Lines

This latest Bush family member to enter into politics may have stepped in it when he took on the Alamo.

At the core of the current fight is the possible relocation of the Cenotaph. Descendants of the Alamo’s defenders are adamantly opposed to moving it from its current position, and they intend to fight.
