A Missed Opportunity

When Anthony Scaramucci was first tapped to be Trump’s CoS, I, apparently along with a million others, thought of how to insert this little ditty in a timely fashion:

Scaramooch, Scaramooch, will you do the fandango?

Tell me Bohemian rhapsody didn’t go through your mind.  You’re lying.

Anthony Scaramucci Out As White House Communications Director | NBC News

I have a theory which, along with a dollar will get you a cup of coffee at McDonald’s. Some think he was brought in specifically to get rid of Spicer and Priebus. As the head of the RNC, Preeby was good buddies with McConnell, Graham, Boehner, all the Nevertrumpers. It is highly likely that he was the source of some of the leaks coming from the inside.

Trump probably hired Scaramucci because he seemed like a no-nonsense type. Never mind the fact his beliefs ran counter to everything Trump ran for office on. He made it all about himself, which is not a good career move. The bombastic, grenade-throwing style was not what the president needed. He was replaced by General John Kelly, a no-nonsense career military man who demands discipline and loyalty. Word is that even Ivanka and Jared have to answer to him. Hopefully, he made a condition of his appointment that when he made a public statement, Trump wouldn’t contradict what he said an hour later.

When a regular politician of either party is elected president, they have a national organization to help establish the agenda ,including lawyers, political operatives, hangers-on, and ne’er-do-wells. Trump had none of that when he was inaugurated. The GOP elite didn’t want him and the Democrats sure as hell didn’t. Holdovers from past administrations and NeverTrumpers systematically leaked information daily in an effort to cripple his ability to get organized and begin the demands of governance.

REPORT: POTUS Preparing For “Independent WH” – Warfare Against GOP Congress

On the same day that Anthony Scaramucci was removed as White House Communications Director, leaks have been flowing out of the Trump administration.

According CNBC’s John Harwood, an anonymous “Ryan-Priebus” ally revealed to the reporter that President Trump is preparing to plot a more “independent” course for the White House, while taking on GOP lawmakers.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul said he spoke to President Donald Trump by phone about healthcare reform on Monday and told the president he thought Trump had the authority to create associations that would allow organizations to offer group health insurance plans.

Allowing groups like AARP, which represents retirees, to form health associations could enable individuals and small businesses to form larger groups to negotiate with health insurance companies for lower rates.

WHITE HOUSE: Ten days after appointing him, Trump has fired Scaramucci due to his expletive-laden interview with New Yorker reporter

Scaramucci threatened to fire the White House communications staff and descended into a profanity-laced rant about senior strategist Steve Bannon and then-Chief of Staff Reince Preibus.

Huckabee Sanders Condemns Scaramucci’s Vulgar Comments in New Yorker Interview

Scaramucci told Lizza that Priebus was “a f***ing paranoid schizophrenic.” He then turned on Steve Bannon saying, “I’m not Steve Bannon. I’m not trying to suck my own c**k.”

On Monday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Scaramucci was fired after his interview with The New Yorker.

Getting The Troops in Line: All White House Staff Will Report to General John Kelly


“General Kelly will bring new structure to the White House and discipline, strength and we’re all really excited to work with him,” she continued.

According to Sanders, there will be no exceptions. Senior White House advisors Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Kellyanne Conway and Steven Bannon will report to Kelly.

Since the ousting of Reince Priebus on Friday and the hiring of Kelly, questions have swirled about whether he would be able to establish a chain of command and restore order in the West Wing. He appears to be doing just that with the abrupt firing of Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci Monday afternoon, just 10-days after he was hired.

    Middle Class Trusts GOP over Democrats by 35 Point Margin to Run the US Economy
    After decades of destroying jobs, manufacturing, religion, culture, tradition and livelihood the Democrat Party was stunned in 2016 to discover Americans weren’t buying their lies about supporting the Middle Class in America.

    Key findings of the “White Working Class Voter Project”
    ◾By a staggering 35-point margin, Republicans are believed to be more likely to “help improve the economy and create jobs” than Democrats
    ◾Democrats trail on the initial Congressional ballot by 10 points (43% – 33%) ◾Republicans are doing better with those under the age of 60 (45 % – 32%) than those over the age of 60 (42% – 34%)

    ◾A majority approve of the job President Trump is doing (52% – 44%) ◾Trump’s approval is higher among those under the age of 60 (56% – 40%) than it is with those over the age of 60 (49% – 47%)
    ◾Trump’s approval is higher in districts surveyed that Hillary Clinton carried (53% – 43%) than ones he carried himself (52% – 45%)

    Betrayal’ — Left-Wingers Furious With Democrats’ Support For Pro-Life Candidates

    The DCCC chairman, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, told The Hill that there will not be “a litmus test” for candidates on the subject of abortion. Lujan’s comments come as Democrats attempt to rebuild a broken party that has hemorrhaged elected offices on both the state and national level.

    Lujan’s comments sparked immediate outrage from left-wingers.

    “I’m afraid I’ll be with holding support for the DCCC if this is true,” said former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean, whose name was briefly floated this year as a candidate for DNC chair.

    REPORT: McConnell wages war in Alabama

    The Republican leader is aiming to thwart Rep. Mo Brooks and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in a special election in Alabama next month. Both men are campaigning against McConnell as a despised symbol of the establishment — and both would exacerbate his already stiff challenge wrangling his GOP Conference.

    McConnell is responding in kind. His super PAC is set to spend much as $8 million to boost his favored candidate, recently appointed Republican Sen. Luther Strange.

    Sheriff Joe Found Guilty by Clinton-Appointed Judge in Jury-less Trial

    GEORGE SOROS SPENT $4 MILLION TO HELP SHERIFF JOE’S DEMOCRAT OPPONENT DEFEAT HIM
    America’s Sheriff” Joe Arpaio was found guilty Monday of misdemeanor criminal contempt without the benefit of a jury of his peers.
    The guilty ruling, by Bill Clinton-appointed U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton, is the latest chapter of a nearly decade-long saga of legal proceedings against Sheriff Joe initiated by leftist groups opposed to his aggressive policing of illegal aliens. The 85-year-old Arpaio now faces up to six months in jail.

    Bible Studies at the White House: Who’s Inside This Spiritual Awakening?
    A spiritual awakening is underway at the White House.
    I THOUGHT CtH MIGHT LIKE THIS
    BET THEY NEVER DID THIS WHILE OBAMA WAS THERE
    Some of the most powerful people in America have been gathering weekly to learn more about God’s Word, and this Trump Cabinet Bible study is making history.

    They’ve been called the most evangelical Cabinet in history – men and women who don’t mince words when it comes to where they stand on God and the Bible.

    Health Secretary Tom Price, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Agriculture Secretary Sunny Perdue, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo are just a few of the regulars.

    “It’s the best Bible study that I’ve ever taught in my life. They are so teachable; they’re so noble; they’re so learned,” Drollinger said.

    Say, Whatever Happened To ‘We Can’t Drill Our Way To Lower Prices’?
    SPOKEN BY A GREEN ENERGY FRAUDSTER

    Energy: Last week Royal Dutch Shell (RDSA) told investors that it expects oil prices to be “lower forever.” We’re still waiting for all those people who were only recently complaining about higher-forever oil prices to admit their mistake.

    It wasn’t that long ago that President Obama was mocking Republicans for their “three-point plan for $2 gas: Step one is drill, step two is drill, and step three is keeping drilling.”

    He went on to say that “the American people aren’t stupid. They know that’s not a plan.”

    Renewable energy, he said, was the only way to solve the “problem” of high oil prices.

    And he kept pushing for new taxes on “old” energy to support federal subsidies for the energy supplies “of the future.”

    Father Pellegrino Funicelli, who assisted the stigmatist, Padre (now Saint) Pio, for many years, once asked him why he had denied absolution to a woman because she was unrepentant about having undergone an abortion.

    Padre Pio responded: “The day that people lose their horror for abortion will be the most terrible day for humanity. Abortion is not only a homicide but also a suicide. Shouldn’t we have the courage to manifest our faith before those who commit two crimes within one act?

    “Suicide?” asked Father Pellegrino.

    “The suicide of the human race will be understood by those who will see the earth populated by the elderly and depopulated of children: burnt as a desert,” Padre Pio replied.
