I just watched a C-SPAN program, a panel discussion on "Presidents and Intelligence". The panel included Jim Clapper, Mike Hayden, Phil Mudd, and Mike Rogers. "Moderator" was Nicolle Wallace. Moderators usually make at least some effort to appear neutral. Wallace made every "question" an appeal for some negative comment regarding President Trump. Obama was scarcely mentioned. The panelists appeared to get along well; even though (per Conservative Treehouse) Clapper tried to get Mike Rogers fired from his job as director of NSA for allegedly going to Trump prior to his inauguration and telling him the NSA was spying on him.
Rogers refused to make nay negative political comments about Trump, despite nagging by "moderator" Wallace. Hayden and Clapper were more than willing to go along and let everyone know Trump is unfit for office. Mudd tried to sit on the fence, but he (in his new role as CNN analyst) is famous for screaming at a GOP trump supporter Mudd's famous CNN rant.

Here is the link to the C-SPAN website page for this program.

This is an hour long video of Google management and personnel having a discussion right after the 2016 election. I just jumped around thru the video and watched little bits and pieces.

What an unbelievable bunch of phony elites so out of touch with everyday America. Full of themselves to the point of bursting.

Here is an outstanding video at Sarah Sander's presser on Monday with Kevin Hassett, basically the head economist in the WH, giving a nerdy powerpoint briefing on why Obama was lying about the current economy. For those who like data, facts, and truth, it is great.

“I regret that he didn’t have more time with President Trump,” Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham told The Associated Press this week about McCain, his late friend and mentor. Graham noted McCain was able to forgive his captors during the Vietnam War. “Who knows what would have happened over time?”

Graham’s unexplained optimism, his eager attempts to soften Trump’s rough edges, have confused colleagues and caused double-takes across Washington. The South Carolina Republican was McCain’s best friend in the Senate, a self-described student of his politics and personal integrity. But he has deviated dramatically in his approach to the tempestuous and divisive president. While others stayed their distance — McCain perhaps most of all — Graham has gone all in, transforming himself into liaison, translator and, critics say, enabler of the president…”

Dare I say, another win coming Big Grin

TRUMP’S LABOR BOARD MAY OVERTURN OBAMA’S JOINT-EMPLOYER RULE.

The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) issued a proposal Thursday that would overturn an Obama-era interpretation of the joint-employer standard that has troubled franchisers for years.

The NLRB is responsible for mediating disputes between workers and employers and enforcing labor laws. It also oversees certain union processes, such as elections.

The board overturned three decades of precedent in 2014 and broadened the definition of a “joint-employer” to include any business or employer that shared “direct or indirect” control over employees. The expanded definition largely affected franchisers, making them liable for labor violations committed by individual franchisees.

“The NLRB’s proposed rule seeks to restore longstanding principles on what establishes a joint employer relationship, which rightly center around direct and substantive control over work conditions of another business,” Competitive Enterprise Institute labor policy analyst Trey Kovacs said in a statement.

“The proposed new standard will create greater certainty for businesses, which will allow employers to plan for the future and be confident in knowing what kinds of business-to-business arrangements will establish a joint employer relationship,” he continued.

Since the definition of a joint-employer was expanded, corporate franchisors have been rolling back support for franchisees who have purchased the rights to open a business under the brand name, Great Clips franchise owner Jerry Akers told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Franchisors typically provide guidance to store owners opening a new business. Since 2014, franchisors have been trying to distance themselves from the store owners to evade being classified as a joint-employer, Akers told TheDNCF.

Unions have fought to keep the new definition of a joint-employer, arguing that the new rule allows workers to have a greater say in bargaining. Under the current rule, unions may bargain with the franchisor and franchisee together as joint-employers instead of the just the franchisee.

Lindsey Graham is a follower. Never has been, never will be a leader. He finds someone powerful and hitches his wagon to them. Then, he seems important.

It's just the way he is.

From October 13, 2016, pre-election Trump:

Thanks to The Conservative Treehouse. Link




Luckily, I have enough willpower to control the driving ambition that rages within me.

When you had the votes, we did things your way. Now, we have the votes and you will be doing things our way. This lesson in political reality from Lyndon B. Johnson

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible." - Justice Janice Rogers Brown

Looks like President Trump picked up another endorsement.

This week at Emory University, Ex-President Jimmy Carter said . . .

“If I were foolish enough to feel I could be president again and I got to be president, I think the first thing I would do would be to change all of the policies that President Trump has initiated since he has been in office. Link

Gas lines, 18% interest rates, 13% inflation, Iranian hostage crisis, and so much more. Yea, we should go back to that. Confused

You would think Carter would be grateful that Obummer supplanted him as the worst president the U.S. has ever had but it seems like he wants his title back. He really should just STFU.

Carter could not grow peanuts without going bankrupt.If he were not an ex president, he would not have a pot to piss in.
