Press Secretary Sarah H. Sanders Interview This Morning…

Amid a swirl of stories surrounding the White House, the larger administration, and ongoing healthcare reform efforts,  Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appears on Fox and Friends this morning:


Also, internal to the communications team, Asst. Press Secretary Michael Short has been released from his responsibilities. Short was another of Reince Priebus’s former RNC staffers who was brought to the White House by Priebus. He was also widely considered one of the leakers.

In the larger overview – CTH did not use the word “ugly” accidentally.  It was obvious the solutions to the DC issues were going to be very atypical, hence “big ugly”.

    Funny, that the very first place Short goes to blab off is CNN.

    From Breitbart this morning:

    …Short has not responded to a request for comment on the questions about his leaking. But he did tell CNN he does not believe he has been fired, even though multiple White House sources confirm he has been.

    “No one has told me anything and the entire premise is false,” Short told CNN.

    Short denied to Breitbart News that he is a leaker. “I have never leaked,” he said in an email…

      Am still not convinced on Sessions. From the outside looking in, his office appears very quiet except on immigration and the medicaid scandal. And yes, he is a southern gentleman and has caved before.

      However, he was an enormous supporter of Trump during the campaign. A part of me hopes that all of this firing talk is just a ruse for whats been going on behind the scenes.

      My fairy tale dream is that very shortly Sessions will un recuse himself and immediately begin indicting all of the Obama, Clinton cases he’s been preparing as Trump fires Mueller and Rosenstein.

      Just dreaming, just dreaming, but wouldnt it be a great fairy tale ending to the beginning of taking down the deep state.

      And…our MAGA president would have outfoxed them all…includingmthe know it all press!!

        My take on the NYT interview was that bringing up a Sessions recusal was a bait for the medial to double down on that recusal was the right thing to do.

        Once the media doubles down on recusal, it begs the question why Muller has not recused in any issues Comey.

        Trump did not go to the NYT to publicly knock people in his administration. IMO he was setting them up. Whatever the end game of the NYT, Sessions was all smiles the next day.

          I am trying to make people look past their anger and frustration to understand that every problem isn’t solved with a hammer. It is frustrating to see President Trump under attack but there is no one on a white horse going to save him.

          Removing Sessions would throw President Trump’s Presidency into chaos and the DOJ into disarray. DOJ employees are very proud of all that has been accomplished in 6 months and the support for the law and the leadership Jeff Sessions has shown. What would happen to their moral to see Sessions thrown under the bus?

          I am sick & tired of backseat quarterbacks pretending that there is an easy solution to the DC swamp if Sessions just resigns. People that say that do not have the country’s best interest in mind since the senate will not confirm another AG for months and all that was started will just mark time. There is a momentum which once squandered cannot be regained.

    Folks here we are within an hour oh so from the Procedural Vote. Rand Paul is now a yes! We will have 51 votes for the House Bill to hit the floor. That is a major first step in this process. A new idea has been discussed. It is considered a skinny Repeal where they eliminate the mandates on individuals, businesses and medical devices.

    I love this skinny repeal strategy because in essence you are killing Obamacare once you eliminate those mandates on individuals and businesses. I also think it is an incredible plan to put the Medicaid Whores into a corner. Yes they get to save Medicaid Expansion since it wouldn’t be touched but it would kill every single citizen that has to purchase Obamacare out of necessity. It also would eliminate folks that would want Healthcare for a catastrophe from purchasing it since you have to buy all 10 Essential elements of Obamacare. Those folks will destroy the Whores because they don’t care about the middle class and those that are above the Medicaid Expansion financial tress hold.

    I still think this is another way to get the Whores to back the BCRA bill

    From the article linked above:

    Still, skinny repeal is the likely outcome if Senate Republicans can’t coalesce around a repeal-and-replace legislation. Their repeal-and-replace bill, the Better Care Reconciliation Act, was unveiled in June but has struggled to gain enough support in the Senate GOP conference.

    The path for the replacement might have just gotten much harder — Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said on Twitter Tuesday morning that the bill would need 60 votes instead of the 50 that Republican leaders had been banking on. That would require a few Democrats to back the bill, which would never happen.

    That seems to leave the bill as good as dead, if Paul is right.

    Even if it were somehow kept alive, the Senate parliamentarian has deemed that several key provisions in the bill violate the chamber’s budget rules, including a provision that is essential to making the bill’s policy work.

    A six-month waiting period for people who have a lapse in health coverage — the Republican replacement for Obamacare’s individual mandate — would need 60 votes to pass unless it is rewritten, the parliamentarian has said, per Senate Democrats.

    There are still a lot of unanswered questions

    With the vote a few hours away, here’s what we’re waiting to find out about BCRA, if leadership still has any hope of passing it:

    Which version of Ted Cruz’s proposal to allow insurance companies to sell non-Obamacare plans — as long as they also sell Obamacare plans — will be included in the bill?

    Is the Cruz amendment even allowable under the Senate rules? Some experts doubt it would be.

    Will provisions defunding Planned Parenthood and restricting federal tax subsidies from paying for plans that cover abortions survive the process? They were also found to be in violation of the Senate rules but could be rewritten.

    Will a $200 billion Medicaid “wraparound” — intended to offset the repeal of Obamacare’s Medicaid expansion (though not completely), which covered 15 million of the poorest Americans — be added to the bill?

    What are the CBO’s cost and coverage projections for BCRA once the above questions are answered?

    The Senate is still hurtling toward a Tuesday afternoon vote with no answers to these questions — and no idea what bill they are even trying to pass.

      Seems so far I got the first piece right! Wrote the following earlier this morning and am still sticking by it!

      Folks our President truly did an amazing job today with his comments at the WH and in WV telling our Senate Republicans to do the right thing for the American people by tossing Barry’s only major domestic accomplishment back to Kenya with him.

      Some very encouraging news came out this evening that Senator John McCain will be on the Senate floor tomorrow to cast his vote to have the House Republican Bill proceed to the Senate floor for 20 hours of debate. I personally believe there is no way in hell John McCain would fly cross country if the bill wasn’t going to receive 50+ votes tomorrow. This TRULY puts pressure on the Medicaid Whores from AK, NV, OH, ND and WV as well as Mike Lee of UT, John Moran of KS and Bill Cassidy of LA to vote yes tomorrow. I also believe Rand Paul will vote yes tomorrow getting us to 51 YES votes.

      From the article linked above:

      John McCain is reportedly returning to the Senate to vote on Obamacare repeal less than a week after it was announced that he is battling an aggressive type of brain cancer.

      Less than a week after announcing he has brain cancer, Sen. John McCain will return to the Senate as Republicans prepare to vote on Obamacare repeal and replacement.

      McCain’s absence put the future of the GOP effort to pass a new health care bill in jeopardy because the party cannot afford to lose votes. It needs 50 — Vice President Mike Pence would break a tie — to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with new health care legislation under Senate rules.

      Here is my handicap of what will occur once the House Republican Bill proceeds to the floor of the Senate. Susan Collins, Democrat from Maine, will remain a NO vote no matter what gets offered because her plan is to work with Democrats. She said so this evening.

      From the article linked above:

      President Donald Trump exhorted every Republican to vote yes on a healthcare overhaul when it comes before the Senate this week, but one of his party’s most vocal opponents of the bill, Senator Susan Collins, said he had made no effort to reach her.

      Collins said lawmakers would first need to address the collapse of insurance markets in many counties across the country. She said Congress should fund cost-sharing subsidies that help keep down consumers’ out-of-pocket costs.

      Collins, who said she had held individual discussions with at least eight Senate Democrats about some kind of bipartisan healthcare effort, said she believed Trump would sign a bipartisan healthcare bill. “At times he called for a bipartisan bill, and so I think he’d be fine with a bipartisan bill.”

      Rand Paul will ultimately vote NO on the BCRA Bill that McConnell will ultimately have them vote on once the 20 hours are up. That leaves no room for error. Mike Lee and John Moran will ultimately vote yes once the Cruz Amendment is proposed and placed as an amendment into the BCRA Bill. Bill Cassidy from LA has been threatened to live for a week in the LA Bayou. He will vote YES to the final bill.

      It ultimately will come down to the FIVE Medicaid Whores! The good thing is they are a block. They will either vote yes or no as a block. I ultimately think that a Repeal Only bill will be pushed by Rand Paul and other Republicans. The Whores will say absolutely NO. The compromise will be that they will vote YES to the BCRA Bill that will have an additional $45 Billion allocated to the Opioid Crisis (especially in states like OH and WV) and the $200 Billion for the Medicaid Expansion states (31 total) that will be used after 2022 to help assist those Americans receiving Medicaid because they qualified under Obamacare.

      They will say to their constituents that they stopped the cruel Repeal Only and got billions of dollars in additional funding for their states. They get to save face and more importantly the BCRA is approved with Mike Pence casting the deciding vote by COB Friday. The House will come back early next week to vote on the Senate Bill and our President will sign the bill into law shortly there after!

      A moment of graciousness following a tough campaign.

      Trump has learned that since Jan .20, the Deep State is in a full attack on his presidency. Firing Flynn was a big mistake as it showed weakness. Sessions going soft and recusing himself “from the fight” was another big mistake. Caving in to the Congress Dems and appointing Mueller SP completed the circle of Insufferable mistakes.

      LEaring from his mistakes, Trump fixes this mess by forcing RR to fire Mueller and leaving Sessions as AG to appoint a new SP, maybe Rudy Giuliani or Chris Christy to investigate Clinton’s and Obamas dirty tricks during the election.

      That investigation is the Dems Pandora’s box and could become the end of the Democrat Party. This is the real Big Ugly as the Dems and the MSM will throw everything they can to cover up their criminal conspiracies to undermine the Trump campaign and damage his character in front of the electorate. The Clinton’s are doing everything in their power to keep this from happening because their whole criminal enterprise will fall like dominoes.

    I agree that cleaning the “swamp ” is imperative for the Trump Administration and for the ” We the People ” to succeed .
    I do however have a concern and question in regards to a dismissal of AG Sessions .
    How long will it take the District of Criminals to confirm another AG if Sessions is removed, and who will be the replacement as I remember during the confirmation hearing for AG Sessions – Senator Grassley ( R) Iowa asking Sessions if he would recuse himself from investigating the Clinton’s and the Foundation to not use the office of AG for politicizing . As Session did express that The Foundation and Hillary need to be investigated while campaigning for President Trump – he is 100 % correct .
    So will Grassley be demanding the same from anyone that President Trump appoints as anyone in their right mind knows that the Clinton’s and the Foundation needs to be investigated .

      The Clintons and their foundation are at the very least worthy targets for the DOJ to investigate, and saying so before appointment shouldn’t require recusal.

      I think there’s a possibility that President Trump is preparing the populace for an eventual Clinton Indictment. He has not made the case against Hillary since taking office. Nor against Obama. Now he is. Slowly.

      It may be that he intends to have a Special Prosecutor assigned soon, rationale? Sessions is busy with other stuff, and not defending Trump either.

      He could also be trying to provoke a move, a bad move, by his opponents.

      Trump entered office and let the Swamp take their best shot. He knows who they are. Their present crimes will justify action, which will be the thread that, pulled, unravels the entire criminal conspiracy.

      Can you imagine the number of pols and business folk and human trafficking political gurus and media entities would be indictable once the Clinton Foundation is smashed open? Cockroaches.

    A thought about the Sessions situation: If President Trump let Sessions quietly resign the establishment would have gone in for the kill. The spin would have been “Ethical AG resigned because he saw how guilty/dirty/crazy/unfit Trump is.

    Instead, Trump makes public all his frustrations with Sessions. Sessions is a one trick pony. His only interest is enforcing immigration which is needed but more suited to Border Control chief than AG.

    Sessions is sitting on his heels while the establishment, dems and media use every illegal leak, statute violation and privacy abuse to overthrow a duly elected president. In addition to that, there are a host of criminal acts begging for investigation including Hillary’s pay for play, stealing Haiti earthquake victims money, the Anwar brothers penetration of sensitive government information, campaign expense irregularities by Democrats and dozens more outrageous actions that Obama chose to ignore.

    Trump is making sure THESE are the discussions about Sessions that people think about when he finally does resign – as he will if he doesn’t take the hint and be an Attorney General.

The combination of pusillanimity and managerial inexperience is lethal.

    Here’s a question that I have. Jeff Sessions recused himself. Why can he not undo that or reverse his decision? I feel like President Trump’s tweets are pushing for that, but what’s stopping Sessions?


  20. Scott Adams has a good overview on Periscope.

    Is John McCain in the Senate now? Is he in a wheelchair or what? No media pics or coverage I find.

    All they need to do is to stop the illegal funding and ACA will die!
    “When Bartiromo asked about allegations that the Obama Administration took money from Fannie and Freddie to pay for the implementation of ObamaCare, Mnuchin responded, “It is true. They used the profits of Fannie and Freddie to pay for other parts of the government while they kept taxpayers at risk.”

    Another really good perspective on how government managed to take over health insurance, from one who was in the trenches:

    McCain saves the day!

    BTW, I still detest him!

    Sarah did a great job in this interview. She is a fine sidekick for Scaramucci.

    Remember “Filegate”? WH employee Craig Livingstone — nobody really knows who hired him but we can guess — asked for and received RAW FBI files on Republicans.

    One has to wonder if Jeff Sessions was one of the Republicans the Clintons got raw FBI data on and if so whether his reluctance to move against Hillary has to do with what was in those files. Keep in mind raw data isn’t necessarily true, just that it was investigated.

    I could accuse Sundance of conspiring with Russians to undermine the USA and even if the FBI found no conspiracy the complaint would be in the raw data. We know what the MSM will do with raw data. We saw them expose Linda Tripp’s juvenile record, we saw them expose the false Russian prostitute pee dossier. Very embarrassing and even if proven false, still does damage.

    Perhaps someone in the WH ought to look into Filegate and find out just who the Clintons have information (true or bogus) on.

    Somebody with the knowhow should make some extracts of this great classic 1952 movie in which Stewart Granger plays SCARAMOUCHE.

    Scarramucci even has a some of the looks of Granger and sure knows how to use words like Scaramouche used the sword.

    Trump needs to go to the Nation’s Heartland and hire American citizen patriots. Nothing gained going to the Nation’s political whorehouses and hiring convoluted corrupt.

    Our CITIZEN SELECTED & ELECTED PRESIDENT is doing back flips, side strokes, and crawls all over the swamp and it’s creatures. I trust his instincts and never underestimate him. Going to see Roger Stone tomorrow and learn more of what’s going on. Keep fighting because we’re winning.

    As usual, the leftards have started a full verbal assault on the lovely Sarah Huckabee Sanders. the standard “double standard” has been applied by *choke* journalists, and *gasp* comedians. Sorry about that redundancy.

    I have no confidence that I know what Trump is doing with regard to Sessions. Perhaps that is the Trump point. Sessions on the other hand does know.

    I will wait to find out what happens. Trump won’t have to fire Sessions, Sessions will resign if indeed he is not doing what Trump generally wants.

    Scaramucci is definitely a turning point in Trump’s administration, huge turning point for the better. That is not to say that up to now Trump has not been stellar. This is Trump in overdrive.

    DJT: “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump campaign – “quietly working to boost Clinton.” So where is the investigation A.G.”


    Yes, A.G. Where, pray tell, is the investigation?

    I understand why some investigations need to be secret, but a LOT of them DON’T.

    When somebody robs a bank, and there is color videotape of the robber, and he’s wearing a legible name-tag, and he accidentally left his home address behind, there is no need for the police department to PRETEND like they’re not “investigating” the crime that has already been solved by everyone who saw the videotape.

    In that kind of situation, all that is accomplished by keeping any ‘investigation’ secret is you insult the intelligence of the People and undermine their confidence in the Rule of Law.

    The fact remains that the Clintons are so clearly guilty of so MANY crimes that ANY law enforcement official would have to be corrupt NOT to investigate and prosecute.

    So either the A.G. is investigating/presenting evidence to a secret grand jury, or he isn’t.

    He better be.

    In the meantime, he continues to undermine the confidence of We the People in the rule of law.

    DJT: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!”


    Turn that burner up to “High”!

    I hope A.G. Sessions is in on this, and they’re working together to put pressure on whatever the obstacles are.

    DJT: “Problem is that the acting head of the FBI & the person in charge of the Hillary investigation, Andrew McCabe, got $700,000 from H for wife!”


    Yes, in any normal reality, that IS a problem… for the acting head of the FBI !!!

    It’s a laughable problem, it’s a farcical conflict of interest, that elephant is so big there’s no space for any people to fit in that room.

    Why is McCabe still the Deputy A.G.?

    If he can’t be fired, he can certainly be reassigned.

    Until ALL of the Obamao leftovers are fired, why not reassign ALL of them to U.S. research facilities at the North and South Poles?

    Watch the resignations POUR in.

    DJT: “Big day for HealthCare. After 7 years of talking, we will soon see whether or not Republicans are willing to step up to the plate!”


    Just incredible that we are in a situation where the Republican president has to mock his own Party in the attempt to cajole them into doing what they have PROMISED to do for 7 years if they EVER got the chance!

    Repeal and replace CONGRESS!
