BREAKING: Omarosa Resigns
Omarosa Manigault Newman, President Trump’s controversial Senior Aide, has reportedly resigned from her role in the White House and will be leaving in late January. The White House, in response to questions from The Associated Press Wednesday morning, released a quote from Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders: “Omarosa Manigault Newman resigned yesterday to pursue other opportunities. Her departure will not be effective until January 20, 2018. We wish her the best in future endeavors and are grateful for her service.” Some reporters disagree that the contentious aide’s exit was a resignation, indicating she may have actually been fired by the Administration: On Omarosa's exit: I just talked to sources who tell me Omarosa was let go yesterday and that she was escorted off of the White House grounds by security. They say she is now calling friends saying that she left voluntarily because her year anniversary was coming up. — Yamiche Alcindor (@Yamiche) December 13, 2017 White House Chief of Staff John Kelly was said in September to have placed Manigault Newman on a “no fly” list, an informal group of aides banned from dropping in on meetings uninvited. Manigault Newman, a longtime associate of Donald Trump from ... read more

Second Court Dismisses Defamation Suit Against Trump
Two courts have now told a Republican political strategist that she can’t sue President Donald Trump just because he said something that hurt her feelings. Public relations specialist Cheri Jacobus first sued Trump for defamation in January. According to her, Trump incited a “virtual mob” against her after she questioned his fitness for office on television last year. After the debate in Iowa, she even went so far as to ask CNN not to air Trump’s campaign rallies. Following Jacobus’s criticism, Trump posted several tweets calling her a “real dummy!” and a “major loser” with “zero credibility” who had “begged” him for a job on his presidential campaign. In retaliation, Jacobus sued. But the case was dismissed by New York state court Judge Barbara Jaffe. Jacobus promptly appealed – and on Tuesday, a five-judge appeals court panel in Manhattan upheld the lower-court ruling. The court determined that Trump’s statements about Jacobus were “too vague, subjective, and lacking precise meaning” to be defamatory, and that any reasonable person would find them to be opinion and not fact. The court, of course, is correct. As Trump attorney Lawrence S. Rosen reasoned, “Just because speech may be offensive to someone doesn’t make it defamatory. The president ... read more

Sen. Bob Corker, Time to Get on Board
On Tuesday, the Senate seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions went blue. Point zero two seconds later, Schumer and company were out demanding to know what’s taking so long to seat him. Why? Taxes. Well, that and general political jackassery. But yes, taxes too. The tax bill still has to go through one more hurdle. The Senate and the House have to reconcile their two bills into one, and then vote, so the President can sign it. And that presents a problem for Senator Corker. Or, rather, for everyone who is not Senator Corker. Corker was the only Republican in the Senate who did not vote to approve their version of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. At the time, the ratio of Republicans to Dems/Ind in the Senate was 52-48. Once Doug Jones is seated, obviously, that will be 51-49. Which means if Corker voted the same it would be 50-50, and Vice President Pence would have to cast the tie-breaking vote. Now, we can expect that Mitch will hold the line and that this vote happens right away and without delay. I expect that. We can count on the vote going through before Jones is seated. ... read more

Chuck Schumer and Friends Demand Delay of Tax Vote Until Doug Jones Is Seated
No. Just don’t do it. That’s the correct way to respond to this demand from Sen. Chuck Schumer and other Democrats that the Senate delay carrying out the people’s business until Doug Jones is seated. A very different tune than they sang about confirmation hearings, I might add. Here’s more from CBS. At a press event Wednesday, Schumer will urge Republicans to “slow down” on the proposal and hold a final vote once Jones gets seated, his office said. Doing so would potentially shatter GOP hopes of approving tax cuts, a key policy goal that lawmakers hope to promote ahead of next year’s midterm elections. Republican leaders want to vote on final tax legislation by next week, and they expect to have the votes to pass it in the House and Senate once a final deal between the chambers is reached. The Alabama secretary of state’s office says it will not certify Tuesday’s election results until Dec. 27 at the earliest. That means Jones likely will not get sworn in until next month. It’s is some pretty basic politicking. This press conference is practically rote. The point is to just say that they did it. To just say later that ... read more

Winners and Losers in the Alabama Senate Race
With any election, there are winners and losers beyond just the names on the ballot, and that is especially true when it comes to a race that captures the national spotlight like the Alabama Senate race. Winner: Democrats, in the short term. Obviously, winning an election while under this big of a spotlight is great for the Democrats. They’ll likely see a short term fundraising bump and getting the “W” — the Democrats’ first win in an Alabama Senate election since 1992 — will boost the spirits of liberal activists. Loser: Democrats, in the long term. With Moore out of the national political scene, the Democrats lose a punching bag. Look at what happened after former Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-MO) “legitimate rape” comments during the 2012 election: the Democrats demanded that every single Republican answer for Akin’s idiotic comments that year, but after Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) easily defeated his bid to unseat her, Akin’s use as a Democratic weapon disintegrated. With this Alabama Senate race happening on its own in an off year, Moore’s potential damage to other Republicans is much more limited. Democrats and liberal media allies will still try to pin Moore on Republicans — especially those ... read more

Omarosa Manigault Newman to Leave White House
Big news out of the White House this morning, right on the heels of last night’s stunning upset in the Alabama Senate race. Omarosa Manigault Newman, the director of communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, has announced she will be leaving the White House starting next year, on the one-year anniversary of President Trump’s inauguration. The exact day will be January 20th, 2018. #BREAKING: Omarosa leaving White House https://t.co/e1Rq2hpoyR pic.twitter.com/j4tL17JyyS — The Hill (@thehill) December 13, 2017 NBC just broke the news: “The White House says Omarosa Manigault Newman — one of President Donald Trump’s most prominent African-American supporters — plans to leave the administration next month.” This is the latest White House shakeup, and comes just days after it was announced that Dina Powell, deputy national security adviser for strategy, will be leaving the Trump administration starting next year. It’s common for there to be a lot of turnover in a new White House, especially after the first year. With a new president comes a new governing style. Growing pains come along with any new administration, and this will give the Trump Administration the ability to be flexible and adjust to the needs of the ... read more

Anti-Trump Investigator Removed From Mueller Team Called Trump a ‘F***ing Idiot’
Peter Strzok, a key player in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s original Russia probe, had to be ‘reassigned’ after sending anti-Trump text messages we learned recently. Now those messages have been made public and it’s fairly easy to see why he was removed. In fact, it’s quite clear that he should never have been part of the investigation from the get-go. Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer, Lisa Page, and had exchanged text messages that “expressed anti-Trump sentiments” and involved “other comments that appeared to favor (Hillary) Clinton.” The Justice Department released 375 messages between Strzok and Page that repeatedly mocked the man who would be President. Here is one such example … Fox’s Justice Producer @JakeBGibson has just obtained the anti-Trump texts between FBI Agent Peter Strzok & Lisa Page. Here’s one of many: pic.twitter.com/xH5KH36ed0 — Kristin Fisher (@KristinFisher) December 13, 2017 Other messages show Strzok referring to Trump as a “douche” and a “f***ing idiot.” “I am riled up,” Strzok said in one message on the night of the final presidential debate. “Trump is a f**king idiot, is unable to provide a coherent answer. I can’t pull away. What the f**k happened to ... read more

CNN anchor’s twitter: Trump ‘pathetic loser’
(THE HILL) — CNN host Anderson Cooper is claiming he was hacked after his Twitter account responded to a tweet from President Trump by calling the president a “pathetic loser.” Trump on Wednesday morning tweeted that GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore worked hard in the Alabama special election, but that the “deck was stacked against him.” “The reason I originally endorsed Luther Strange (and his numbers went up mightily), is that I said Roy Moore will not be able to win the General Election. I was right! Roy worked hard but the deck was stacked against him!” Trump tweeted. ... read more

In Scathing Editorial, the Wall Street Journal Urges Republicans, “DROP STEVE BANNON!”
I imagine a lot of Republican lawmakers are rolling out of bed this morning, hungover, or just dead on their feet from a night of tossing and turning, after watching one more Senate seat slip to the blue. And in Alabama, no less! I’d say this was a turn they should have expected. The nation is now vomiting up the nationalist Ipecac that had been forced down our gullets in 2016. It only took a year. Of course, don’t blame Trump. He wanted the purple-y wonder of Luther Strange, as he was quick to point out to the wincing Republicans of Alabama. Bannon, however, took his special brand of arrogance straight into the heart of Alabama, and boasted of how Alabama didn’t need outsiders telling them how to vote. He’s from Virginia, but, whatever. Bannon was once described by conservative talker Ben Shapiro (former editor-at-large of Breitbart News) as “vindictive,” “nasty,” and as an aggressive self-promoter, who would use names bigger than himself (like Trump), as stepping stools. We saw that in the 2016 election, when Bannon managed to insinuate himself into the Trump camp, and saw some success, managing to plant the nationalist flag firmly on Mount Trump, ... read more
