Jonah Goldberg

Trump Twitter
A lack of filter can be good, unless we are talking about covfefe, er, coffee...

Jonah Goldberg and Mollie Hemingway, got into a heated argument, all because of one tweet from President Donald Trump.

During Thursday’s airing of the show, the two panelists got into a very heated debated.

Discussing a tweet from Trump, “With all of the recently reported electronic surveillance, intercepts, unmasking and illegal leaking of information, I have no idea…” and “…whether there are “tapes” or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.”

“It was, it was a bad idea,” Goldberg responded, “and it got him in a lot of trouble. And he’s still trying to back out of it. I gotta say, I don’t really care about the tapes, I always thought it was a bluff, to me it is perfect example of how he tries to run his presidency like a reality show, like wait for the big reveal at the big mid-season break kinda thing.”

“What does bother me about that tweet is his insinuation that it’s entirely plausible that members of the ‘deep state’ or the intelligence community, or law enforcement are bugging the Oval Office without his awareness,” he continued. “And that is a pretty provocative charge to make. I’m sure he’s making it, you know, if he ever gets pushback on it, he’ll say he was just speaking tongue-in-cheek, but I thought that was the more offensive part of it.”

“No, that’s ridiculous,” Hemingway interrupted, “you’ve had nothing but months of leaks from intelligence agencies about people affiliated with the Trump campaign or otherwise, it’s not insane at all to think that there might be surveillance since we’ve seen so many again, unmasked…”

“What allegations that Donald Trump has been surreptitiously recorded without his approval?” Goldberg said.

“What, I mean, the issue with that original tweet is that James Comey had already been leaking to the New York Times,” Hemingway responded, “and he’d been presenting stories as if he was some hero of the conversations he had had with Trump. That tweet actually got James Comey to admit that he did three times tell Donald Trump that he wasn’t under investigation. It got him to admit that he did say Mike Flynn was a good guy when he was asked about it by the president. And it did get him to admit also that he pledged his honest loyalty to Donald Trump which is contrary to what he had said to the New York Times the day before that.”

“It also got him a special prosecutor,” Goldberg responded.

“I think it’s naive to think that that would have not happened otherwise,” Hemingway said. “James Comey was clearly laying a groundwork in a campaign through his leaking and it’s kind of rewriting history.”

“That’s possible,” Goldberg allowed. “That’s possible, but my point still stands. There’s no evidence whatsoever that anyone was bugging or wiretapping the Oval Office or the President of the United States without his awareness.”

‘There was a lot of leaking…” Hemingway intervened.

“Leaking is not bugging!” Goldberg shot back.

“…of taped conversations,” Hemingway continued, “for a group of people that are not doing a lot of surveillance.”

The Establishment

In an article today, National Review’s Jonah Goldberg, wrote of a “shadowing organization called ‘The Establishment’ that’s working to thwart the will of the majority.”

Goldberg, son of Lucianne Goldberg, was writing as if The Establishment is some fictitious group that doesn’t really exist.

Like Hillary Clinton’s Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, the GOP Establishment is not a organized group of individuals who meet behind thick doors to plot the takeover of the world.

The Establishment that a majority of the public has become unable to tolerate, is the politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, pundits and anyone who has attempted to push self-serving policies onto America.

Jonah Goldberg is part of that Establishment.

It’s the ruling class, that have told us how to think and how to vote for decades, despite their direction driving America into the dustbin of history.

Specifically within politics, the Establishment is the core of politicians and their truly shadowy consultants who are so out of touch with the will of the people, that they expect to be able to throw up an issue or talking point and expect conservatives and Republicans to line up and march in lock step.

Those days are over.

The Establishment and its members are now the laughing stock of America. They have lost all respect and are ridiculed far more than they are respected.

Mitt Romney is the perfect example of this.

Romney came out of his gold-lined bubble to chastise voters who were supportive of Trump, or at the very least, sick of the ruling class’s death grip on Republican politics.

Within four years, Romney went from GOP nominee that was able to limp along against Obama and have weary sheep follow him into the voting booth to having the same status as a homeless man standing on the street with the sign, “The End is Near.”

The media covered him, but Americans saw his rant for what it is . . . the childish fit of a loser.

The National Review, Mitt Romney, Fox News and countless other individuals and publications spent the last few decades chuckling over cocktails about how gullible the public is. As long as they wrote and spoke at a fifth grade reading level, they could convince the public that the sky is pink and war, taxes, budgets and government power were all malleable concepts that they could mold to their benefit.

They have worn out their welcome with the public and will have evolve or retire from public life for good, as America is now wise to the scam.

Who is “The Establishment” you ask? It’s those guys who will soon be lining up on the unemployment line.
