    As Georgiafl shared last page, great news on Trump’s pick to lead the FBI getting his confirmation hearing next Wednesday:


    With Comey gone and McCabe embroiled in scandal, hopefully Wray can get through rapidly. This should be made easier with Muh Russia all but over now.

    If we can get Wray in and ObamaCare repealed by the end of July or early in August, it will have been a great summer.

    The FBI is a cesspool right now. The sooner someone can come in and clear it out and restore order, the better.

    Also, I believe that Wray was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in the past for another position. So they should have no real ability to smear his credentials.

    ABC News tonight did a story on Charlie Gard, or Baby Charlie as they called him.
    I’m glad to see this get some mainstream coverage.
    CBS, I didn’t see a mention of the story there, but incredibly, they managed to slip in a mention of Russia election meddling in another story.
    I think ABC is the least worse out of the three, NBC, CBS, and ABC.
    That’s all I can say for them, they’re not as bad as the other two.

    Report: Steve Bannon’s Star Rising in the Trump White House

    ADAM SHAW July 5, 2017 1,177

    “Steve Bannon, White House chief strategist and one of the architects of President Trump’s longshot populist victory in November, reportedly has his mojo back after a period of “hibernation” and is now one of the top voices in the Trump White House — just as Trump looks to take the initiative and push back against those in Congress and the media looking to stifle his agenda…..

    The move from defense to offense against media outlets could be a sign of Bannon’s ascendancy. Noting that Bannon relishes a fight against the media, Axios quotes a friend of Bannon: “Trump loves the fight, and Bannon loves the fight.”

    Ultimately, Axios concludes, Bannon’s resurrection comes from the simple fact that he shares the same worldview as the president: “The biggest reason that Bannon is back is that his worldview is Trump’s worldview.”

      Read that article in Axios this morning. Fake News. Bannon never lost his mojo, was never in hibernation, and never lost his position of influence in the Trump White House.

      These ppl will stop at nothing to get at Our POTUS and his advisors/supporters.

      I agree with Jeans that this is likely a lot of fake news.

      That said, however, one reason why Bannon would be back in favor now is because Trump is on offense. When Trump was on defense with Muh Russia, Bannon is not the guy you roll out. Because Bannon is more cutting-edge and less milquetoast.

      But when you are on offense, Bannon is the guy you want.

      Now that Trump is on offense, I’m sure Bannon will be getting plenty of run and the Wussy GOPers will be getting less run.

    A refreshingly honest, and spot-on read in, of all places, the new York Times, by Nikil Saval.

    Hated by the Right. Mocked by the Left. Who Wants to Be ‘Liberal’ Anymore?

    “Now the political left (as well as the right) is expressing its hatred of liberals, too. For the committed leftist, the ‘‘liberal’’ is a weak-minded, market-friendly centrist, wonky and technocratic and condescending to the working class. The liberal is pious about diversity but ready to abandon any belief at the slightest drop in poll numbers”

    Short read. Now pick your jaw up off the floor.

    The G20 Presidency 2017 at a glance

    “Germany assumed the G20 Presidency on 1 December 2016. The G20 is the central forum for international cooperation on financial and economic issues. The G20 countries account for more than four-fifths of gross world product and three-quarters of global trade, and are home to almost two-thirds of the world’s population.”

    Tom Fitton calls on DOJ to shut down Mueller investigation


    It got worse today. Mueller hired fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. Apparently there are up to 14 attorneys now. FOR WHAT CRIMES?
