 Trump Rinses Himself of Priebus 
A whirlwind of change occurred over the last 10 days at the White House, starting with the hiring of Anthony Scaramucci as communications director and the immediate departure of Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Scaramucci's hiring — and profane tirade to the media — now appears to have precipitated the resignation of Reince Priebus as chief of staff. Donald Trump quickly named the current director of Homeland Security, Gen. John Kelly, as Priebus' replacement. After months of an administration troubled with staff infighting and the seemingly unending problem of West Wing leaks to the press, Trump's frustration reached the breaking point. And heads rolled.
          The ouster of Priebus was more a question of "when" than "if" for Trump. It's now all the more clear what Trump's longtime friend Christopher Ruddy observed back in early February: "I think there's a lot of weakness coming out of the chief of staff. I think Reince Priebus [is a] good guy, well-intentioned, but he clearly doesn't know how the federal agencies work. He doesn't have a really good system. He doesn't know how the communications flow."
          Priebus may have been in over his head. He was clearly never able to rein in all the competing factions or bring any discipline to the administration's messaging. Too often the White House appeared more like a three-ring circus than a tightly run ship. This was made all the more challenging with the hostile media taking every leak as an opportunity to spin the narrative against Trump and his agenda. In fact, Trump himself often made things all the more difficult with his propensity to go off message himself.
          So why did Trump choose Priebus for his chief of staff in the first place? Two words: loyalty and establishment. Once Trump had secured the Republican presidential nomination, Priebus, as head of the Republican National Committee, stepped up and resisted the cavalcade from many establishment Republicans to work to remove Trump. Thus, after Trump's surprise election victory, he chose Priebus because of loyalty. Second, Trump may have calculated that he needed a Beltway guy to help sway establishment Republicans into getting on board with his agenda.
          For his part, Priebus maintained his support for Trump after his firing and gave no hint of bitterness, stating, "It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this president and our country. I want to thank the president for giving me this very special opportunity. I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda and polices. I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success."
          On a final note, it may say a great deal about the calamitous state of the leaky White House that Trump thinks the guy to fix it is a military man who heads the Department of Homeland Security.  ~The Patriot Post

Sessions Criminal Leak Indictments,
Wasserman Schultz Spy Case Exploding
{rickwells.us} ~ Attorney General Sessions seems more motivated lately, probably for reasons having something to do with the Presidential teeth marks he’s now sporting... He’s promising action, saying, “I have not been happy with the past prosecutions and investigations of criminal leaks.” Sessions says, “We’ve already taken a number of steps, we’ll have multiple, we’ll have a press conference next week about it, but we already have multiples numbers of prosecutions compared to last year at this time. We’re stepping up those cases, it cannot continue. Some people need to go to jail. If we can make cases they are going to jail.” Judge Napolitano noted the use of “a term of art” when AG Sessions said “criminal leaks,” explaining that a West Wing leak of non-classified information is not a criminal leak. “But if someone unmasks from raw intelligence data, the identity of a person participating in a communication, whether it’s telephone, email or text messaging, and that is done for political purposes and not for national security purposes, that is a criminal leak...http://rickwells.us/napolitano-sessions-criminal-indictments-wasser...

The Nature Of American Denial
by James Hall
{thesleuthjournal.com} ~ At the core of self delusion is the inability and/or the unwillingness of facing reality... While psychological disorders can often explain abnormal behavior in individuals, the exegesis for deviant social attitudes and accompanying conduct is reserved for society. Or so we are told! But does this make sense to you? As long as you accept that reality does exist and that it can be understood, it follows that we have the right, the ability and the obligation to comprehend it and adjust our actions accordingly. Most Americans view, of their own personal identity, is inculcated by the political culture. Delmar England, in his provocative work – Mind and Matters, The World in a Mirror – offers this valuable insights into our mutual and shared condition: “In human affairs, as surely as effect is preceded by action, action is preceded by belief, and belief is preceded by thought and conclusions.”...http://www.thesleuthjournal.com/nature-american-denial/

Sen. James Lankford Chides ABC News
for Careless Use of ‘Hate Group’ Label
by Rachel del Guidice
{dailysignal.com} ~ In a letter to the head of ABC News, a U.S. senator criticizes the news organization for carelessly editorializing by using the term “hate group” in a report about a prominent Christian legal organization... Sen. James Lankford, R-Okla., suggests to ABC News President James Goldston that an account by two of his reporters in fact unfairly maligned a “peaceful group,” whose recent conference was the venue for a speech on religious freedom by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In his letter, dated Monday, Lankford asks Goldston: “Why would ABC News label a peaceful group as a ‘hate group’ simply because of a difference of opinion?”... http://dailysignal.com/2017/07/31/sen-james-lankford-slams-abc-news...

How Trump Could Force Congress and
Its Staff to Live Under liar-nObamacare
by Fred Lucas
{dailysignal.com} ~ President Donald Trump could have Congress in an uncomfortable corner over the lawmakers’ exemption, and that of their staff, from liar-nObamacare... “This is one more instance of Congress passing an unpleasant, expensive, onerous law on citizens and then conferring a valuable benefit on itself,” Joe Morris, former general counsel for the Office of Personnel Management, told The Daily Signal. The provision provides what critics say is tantamount to an unconstitutional waiver for members of Congress and their staff from rules mandated by the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as liar-nObamacare...http://dailysignal.com/2017/07/31/how-trump-could-force-congress-an...

Vile Procter and Gamble Video Attacks
ALL WHITES As RACIST BULLIES Victimizing Blacks
{rickwells.us} ~ All of you “racist white folks” out there using Procter and Gamble products like Bounty, Crest, Cascade, Gain, Febreze, Mr. Clean, Charmin, Tide, Downy, Gillette and more need to get “your filthy hands” off of their pure creations... And if you’re holding their stock, put in a sell order right away. You’re not good enough, with your inbred hatred and bigotry, to be a part of their wholesome, diverse, victimized company. They’ve made it clear, by stereotyping all whites as insensitive, hate-filled racists in their current advertising campaign, that they don’t want our business. The least we can do is oblige them, take our privileged money somewhere else, to a company that doesn’t choose to prejudge us based upon the color of our skin. The video from the billion dollar company shows a surprising lack of awareness of who their customers are. Or maybe they, like Target, with their unisex perversion push and Kellogg’s or Starbucks with their unbridled liberal assaults on regular Americans, simply don’t care. The politics is more important than their business...What garbages. http://rickwells.us/vile-proctor-gamble-video-attacks-whites-racist...

The Politics of Fatigue
by Tom McLaughlin
{tommclaughlin.blogspot.com} ~ Summer is half over and I haven’t played enough — almost not at all, but I’ve begun to make some changes to allow it. Yes, I have to finish a book proposal and send it out, but I hate doing it and have to force myself to work at it every day for a little while at least. I have to get outside more and clear my head between sessions. I also have to stop reading obsessively about political goings-on. I’m staying away even though it's especially hard to do when so much is happening. It's been a nice break to avoid politics and write about other things, but here are some political “reflections on the passing scene” as the great columnist Thomas Sowell used to pen occasionally before he retired.
*After seven years of promising to repeal liar-nObama care and passing countless bills to do so knowing they’d be vetoed by liar-nObama, Republicans in Congress can’t do it with a Republican president who would sign it. Meanwhile, liar-nObamacare is collapsing as predicted. Thanks Democrats. Thanks Republicans. You’re both pathetic. If members of Congress and everyone else who works for our way-too-big federal government were forced to be under liar-nObamacare along with the rest of us, it would never have passed in the first place, or would surely be fixed now.
*Seventy years ago, Congress passed Amendment 22 which limited a president to two terms. It’s time for Amendment 28 to limit senators and congressmen to a total of twelve years each, after which they must be banned from lobbying for an additional ten years. Think of all the obnoxious senators and congressmen we wouldn’t have to listen to if Congress’s terms had been limited seventy years ago too? Think of where we’d be today instead of where we are.
*Finally, finally, we have some actual evidence of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. It’s very thin — not evidence of actual collusion, but only an email indicating that Donald Trump, Jr. was open to hearing about possible help from a Russian back in June, 2016. Over a year of investigation, and that’s all we’ve got. Will another year of even more investigation yield anything else? Don’t hold your breath. The investigation is having the desired effect however. It’s driving Donald Trump crazy, much crazier than he otherwise might be.
*Meanwhile, I’m kicking myself for not working harder against Donald Trump during the primaries. I should have trusted my first instinct that any guy in his seventies who would pay that much attention to his hair has personality problems. When I think that we had sixteen alternatives, any of which would have been so much better, including Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, or anyone else except John Kasich. Okay, maybe even him.
*President Trump’s antics are so embarrassing I can hardly stand it, but liar-Hillary Clinton? I could never have brought myself to put a check next to that name. If I could go back to that voting booth last November, I believe I’d do the same thing. In the meantime, I’d like the president’s sterling cabinet to get together and prepare an ultimatum for their boss: Fire the Mooch, stop tweeting, do what General Kelly tells you, use the speechwriters you had for the Middle East and Poland speeches, and use the teleprompter exclusively when speaking in public — or we resign, en masse, right now. Maybe that would smarten him up.
The Mooch was fired the day after I wrote this on Sunday. Hooray for General Kelly!
*Yeah, Trump’s approval ratings are very low, but guess whose ratings are even lower — the media’s. Trump deserves his ratings and media have certainly earned theirs as well. Can there be any more doubt about left-wing mainstream media bias? Yeah, Fox is biased right, but nearly every other television media outlet is biased left — and most newspapers too. I’ve spent years on both sides of the spectrum and it’s patently obvious to me. Are we all ready to admit this now?
*Trump’s worst mistake would be to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions. It would be worse than firing Mueller, which would only make the left — in media and in government — go even more crazy than they are now. But how much crazier can they get? They’re already cutting Trump’s head off in effigy and one leftist wing-nut opened fire on Republicans at a baseball practice, nearly killing Congressman Scalise and wounding several others. But to fire Jeff Sessions would sink Trump with conservatives who are already annoyed with his tweets. His support would dry up almost entirely.
*Maybe a third party will emerge of disaffected Democrats and Republicans who would shrink the federal government and return power to the states. We could call it the Tenth Amendment Party.
