Lionel Nation – Did you hear me? The champion of raucous reportage was granted a reprieve from the press corps dog house not because he was a journalist, member of the fourth estate or deserves a picogram of respect, no. ‘Twas because he was deprived of DP Notice and an opportunity to be heard, pilgrims.
Judge Timothy Kelly agreed with the plaintiffs that the White House did not give Little Jimmy via the Administrative Procedure Act due process by simply having a Secret Service officer demand the return of his physical pass without any prior and adequate notice or opportunity to respond.
So what does this mean? Simple, POTUS can yank his creds again but make it a tad more formal. And one more thing on the subject, if Jimmy’s so critical to #FakeNewsCNN, why won’t they give the punk his own show?
HRC sent up a trial balloon, Hindenburg style
Two Hillary hacks last week sent up the blatantly staged and deliberately planted feelers that the Oven Mitt Fashionista HRC in this WSJ piece was threatening, er, considering another shot at POTUS. Gadzooks! Check out this headline. Hillary Will Run Again: Reinventing herself as a liberal firebrand, Mrs. Clinton will easily capture the 2020 nomination.
One of the authors, Mark Penn, her old campaign field marshal who’s actually credited along with Cruella de Vil herself with the birth of the Birther Movement from his now famous 2007 memo, is noted and remembered for calling Obama “unelectable except perhaps against Attila the Hun.” He further wrote, “I cannot imagine America electing a president during a time of war who is not at his center fundamentally American in his thinking and in his values.”
Penn proposed targeting Obama’s “lack of American roots.” Uh huh. And you know what that means. In case this point was missed, let me reiterate. The Pantsuit Piranha and her dutiful manservant are the architects of the “conspiracy theory” that the newly-minted style maven Michelle Obama actually blames President Trump for advancing.
And speaking of the former FLOTUS, now author. She gives us “Becoming.”
We know how Michelle O loathes the cantankerous cankled one and in her new iteration fancies herself a nouveau Oprah. Or something. And if she does, she needs to work on her delivery and have an idea of what interesting is.
Here a just a few scintillating quotes from that will certainly wow and mesmerize.
1. “There are simply other ways of being.” [You’re kidding, right? What the hell does that even mean? Quick, someone get the Dali Lama on the phone.]
2. And this spellbinder: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s the power of using your voice.” [Tell that to a single mom working two jobs, oh great Sage. Didn’t Charlie McCarthy say that once? Or was it his wooden dummy, Edgar Bergen? This sounds like the deep musings of a 16 year-old self-absorbed diarist.]
3. And finally, this shout-out to Stuart Smalley: “Am I good enough? Yes I am.” [Dear God. Who writes this stuff? Look when it comes to saccharine and schmaltzy omphaloskepsis, give me Charlene and the anthem of self-absorption, “I’ve Never Been to Me.”]
