MSNBC conservative obliterates Kellyanne Conway for wanting to put ‘an accused pedophile’ in the Senate

Published

on

Conservative radio host and MSNBC contributor Charlie Sykes had nothing good to say about Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway for saying the White House would rather embattled U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore be elected than a Democrat because of tax policy.

Speaking with MSNBC’s Kasie Hunt, the conversation switched from the latest accusation against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) to Conway’s appearance on Fox & Friends Monday morning.

Fox News co-host Brian Kilmeade asked Conway about the Alabama election, in light of Moore being accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old when he was in his thirties. “So vote Roy Moore?” he wondered.

“I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through,” Conway responded — which set Sykes off Monday afternoon.

Sykes began by criticizing candidate Moore.

“I think, by the way, he’s clearly lying about what has happened,” Sykes explained. “He has not asked for forgiveness, he’s not apologizing and he’s threatening the women coming forward. This has been a card that’s been successful in the past and it’s very hard to predict what’s going to happen in a special election like this.”

“That victimization card that people like Steve Bannon like to play as a theme has been effective in the past in rallying the base, getting the base to say, ‘we’re not listening to anything,'” he added.

“By the way, Kellyanne Conway’s comments were breathtakingly cynical,” he continued. “She basically tore the mask off and said, ‘yeah, we’re willing to elect an accused pedophile in order to get our tax bill.’ That is just the naked hypocrisy exposed there.”

Intel official who briefed lawmakers on latest Russian meddling targeted for ouster by Trump White House: CNN

During a discussion on the war on the intelligence community being waged by the Donald Trump's White House, CNN host Victor Blackwell stated that sources speaking with the network stated that the intel official who briefed lawmakers for both parties on new efforts by Russia to meddle in U.S. elections could be on the way out.

Speaking with contributor Lynn Sweet, Blackwell asked about the so-called "purge" being conducted by the White House.

"It sends the signal once again that President Trump is not a respecter of the United States intelligence services with the bigger issue that a permanent director has not been in that office since last summer when Dan Coates was forced out," Sweet explained. "This is a key position, subject to Senate confirmation and Trump hasn't seen fit to have a permanent director for months now."

Trump’s latest national security adviser is undercutting FBI Director Wray to quash report of new Russian meddling: report

Published

In a scorching column for the Daily Beast, historian David Rothkopf accused Donald Trump's latest national security director, Robert O'Brien, of undercutting the United States intelligence services and uses his comments about recent reports of new Russian election meddling to make the case that he is contradicting FBI Director Christopher Wray to please the president.

According to Rothkopf, "For just over a century, since America arrived as a major force on the global stage, we have feared that should our enemies defeat us, it would be on the battlefield or via a devastating nuclear onslaught. We never could have imagined that an enemy might take another approach altogether: infecting us with a presidential virus who this week gutted our national security leadership structures like a fish."

Decoding the Christian paradox: Evangelical historian explains how right-wingers ignore Jesus to support a corrupt and greedy president

Published

on

To quote the bumper sticker: "What would Jesus do?"

Assuming that he existed and held the views imputed to him, Jesus Christ would not support Donald Trump.

Donald Trump's behavior, values, policies and their consequences are the opposite of what Jesus Christ represented. Trump has put migrants and refugees in cages and delighted in their suffering. He feels contempt for the poor, the sick, the vulnerable and the needy. He has lied at least 16,000 times. He is corrupt and wildly greedy.
