“This is not good, folks.  I mean, they’re reporting on me accurately.  This is not normal.  There is no snark.  There is no reference or there are no allusions to how I am off on a wacko conspiracy theorist tangent.  All they do is report me and quote me accurately. Rushbo

Hannity, RCP: Julian Assange – “Not the Russians”

“JULIAN ASSANGE, WIKILEAKS: Our source is not the Russian government.
“SEAN HANNITY: So let me be clear: Russia did not give you the Podesta documents or anything from the DNC.
“ASSANGE: Correct.
“HANNITY: Can you confirm whether or not you have anything involving hacked info from the RNC?
“ASSANGE: We received about three pages of information to do with the RNC and Trump, but it was already public somewhere else.
“HANNITY: So in other words: There was nothing significant. There was nothing comparable to [the DNC leaks]. So what Reince Priebus said on Meet The Press this weekend was correct, and NBC got it wrong?
“ASSANGE: As far as we’re aware of.”

Andrew McCarthy, NRO: “Of Course Russia Meddles in Our Elections — But the ‘Hacking’ Claim Is a Farce”

“The current spectacle has little to do with Russian intelligence — it’s about Democrats wanting an election do-over.
“. . .Suffice it to say that if the American political class is suddenly worried about Russian aggression, deceit, cyber-espionage, and collaboration with Iran (in order to — get this! — fight terrorism), I welcome it to the club. And if the gray beards are fretting over Donald Trump’s potential coziness with our enemies, that’s good to hear . . . although it would have been nice to have a fraction of that fretting when it came to the Obama-Clinton operational coziness with our enemies.

“All that said, the Democrats’ Chicken Little routine can’t be serious, nor is the chattering class that pretends to take it seriously. . .”

TO THE ELECTORS:

Consider competence and honesty: “Hillary Clinton cheated Bernie Sanders. Reconsider your vote for her” Red Eye Radio, 3am, 12/16/16

Anthony Fisher, Reason: “Why ‘Hamilton Electors,’ Who Would Make Hillary Clinton President, Are as Dead as Their Namesake

“Desperate Democrats would subvert the Constitution to deny Donald Trump the Oval Office.

“Donald Trump’s surprise election has made the Electoral College a thing again. Sad Democrats and progressives, still looking for anyone and anything to blame besides their feckless candidate and the inept, celebrity-obsessed campaign she ran, are repeating their stages of grief from 2000, when Al Gore won the popular vote but lost the White House to George W. Bush. In both cases, the Dems could fixate on the Electoral College, that awful holdover from the country’s slave-owning past. But despite high-profile attempts to bend the rules before the Electoral College votes on December 19, there’s no way in hell that Trump is not going to be the next president. Whatever you think of either him or Clinton, that’s not a bad thing. It’s the way the rules are supposed to work, and for good reasons.. .”

John McCormick, Bloomberg: “Long-Shot Bid to Block Trump Arrives at Electoral College Monday”

“. . . rancor in what already has been a divisive political season and serves as a capstone for a 2016 presidential election that will go down as one of the oddest in U.S. history.

Behind the drive is a group calling itself Hamilton Electors, led by two Democratic electors from western states. The name is a nod to Alexander Hamilton and his explanation of the need for the Electoral College, an entity the first U.S. Treasury secretary said existed to make sure that “the office of the president will never fall to the lot of any man who is not in an eminent degree endowed with the requisite qualifications.”

“Bret Chiafalo, an Electoral College member from Washington state who is a Hamilton Electors organizer, calls the institution the nation’s “emergency brake” in a video that outlines the group’s goals. “If only 37 Republican electors change their vote, Donald Trump will not have the 270 electoral votes he needs to be president,” he says. “Thirty-seven patriots can save this country.”

Chiafalo and others who have joined the effort want the Electoral College returned to what they say is its original concept: a deliberative body that uses the popular vote as a guide. . .”

Justin Caruso, Daily Caller: “George Soros, Big Banks and Google Fund Anti-Trump Resistance Group”

“The liberal think tank Center for American Progress (CAP), now fashioning itself as a powerful anti-Trump force, is funded by George Soros, big banks and several large corporations.

“CAP, founded in 2003 by former Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta, has long been a prominent liberal think tank in Washington. Now, they look to be the leader of efforts on the left to fight against Donald Trump’s incoming administration though their advocacy wing, the Center for American Progress Action Fund (CAPAF). . .

Rushbo: “The Left’s Election-Was-Hacked Lunacy Masks Hillary’s Historic Electoral Loss”

“. . . This whole election-was-hacked thing is a full-fledged joke.  And get this.  There’s a new poll out from the Fox News Channel.  Fifty-nine percent of the respondents said that all of this had no impact on the election.

“The Democrats are gonna look at that and they’re gonna start pulling their hair out because everything is boomeranging on ’em.  You realize that?  While it may look to you like the Democrats are carrying the day here because they’re defining the narrative and what everybody’s talking about, don’t forget who won the election and who lost!  And don’t forget who was rejected!  And don’t forget who was repudiated:  Obama, Hillary.

“It was an Electoral College landslide, folks.  She was sent packing, as was Obama and his agenda.  And that hasn’t changed, the American people’s minds haven’t changed, they don’t regret the way they voted.  So all this stuff the Democrats are doing is really boomeranging on ’em.  The media is aware of it but trying to hide that, and they’re getting more angry by the day that what they’re trying to do isn’t working so they’re intensifying the effort, and that’s where we are. . .”

LEADS:

Kevin Williamson, NRO: “The Matter with Coal Country”

“It’s not only Kansas that confounds Democrats.
“Harlan County, Ky., has a long history with two dirty businesses: coal and the Democratic party.
“As with much of Appalachia, Kentucky’s politics are more complicated than often is understood. There are many dividing lines in Kentucky, some of them familiar: Donald Trump won the state in the 2016 presidential election, but Hillary Rodham Clinton won the state’s two most populous and urban counties, which together account for about a quarter of the state’s population. But other political borders are more Appalachia-specific, and one of those is the distinction between areas where coal is mined and those where it isn’t.
“In Harlan County, the archetype of coal country, Republicans have not had much of a shot until the day before yesterday. With the exception of George McGovern, Harlan supported every Democratic presidential candidate between 1960 and 2000, even rallying behind Walter Mondale over Ronald Reagan. Coal miners were union men, and union men voted Democrat, as did their sons and grandsons.
“But the Democratic party over the years has grown more urban and suburban. It is a very different institution today than it was when the Panhandle farmers in Monroe, Texas, decided to change the name of their little town to New Deal. The suburbanite Democrats are consumers of luxury political goods, and as such they feel very strongly about such exotica as alternative energy. And they hate coal mining.
“Coal mining hates them back. . .”

Rushbo: “The Rundown on Rex Tillerson”

“. . . This piece is in the December 11th issue of The New Yorker.  . .

I’ve always liked Tillerson for a host of reasons.  But, again, I’ve never stopped to think of Rex Tillerson as secretary of state.  I’ve always look at Tillerson as what he is, the CEO of ExxonMobil.  The book that Steve Coll wrote is called Private Empire: ExxonMobil and American Power.  And he says here that Rex Tillerson’s life has been shaped to a profound extent by two institutions:  ExxonMobil and the Boy Scouts of America.

“Tillerson grew up in Texas.  His father was an administrator for the scouts, was not paid very much.  Rex Tillerson himself became an Eagle Scout.  He was an engineering major at the University of Texas in Austin.  He joined ExxonMobil in 1975 and he’s never worked anywhere else.

“Now, ExxonMobil is part of the Rockefeller oil monopoly — Standard Oil — and it is said that of all the oil companies that resulted from the breakup of Standard Oil, that Exxon is culturally the closest to John D. Rockefeller and the way he ran Standard Oil, which means that ExxonMobil is organized on principles of capitalism. Mr. Coll describes it as ruthless capitalism.  I think all of capitalism is ruthless.  This is just what people don’t know.  Competition, real competition for sales of anything, competition for ideas, competition is ruthless, period.

“It’s not ruthless to people that doesn’t like it.  It’s not ruthless to people don’t compete.  But it can be brutal.  And it’s not a bad thing.  Competition is where innovation comes from.  Competition is where leadership comes from.  Don’t misunderstand.  I’m not a person that sees perfection in things.  Everything has its problems and faults.  No individual is perfect.  No group of people is perfect.  But I am not one who believes that capitalism is flawed by virtue of its existence.  The left is. . .”

Victor Davis Hanson, NRO: “Has Trump Nominated Too Many Military Leaders — or Not Enough?”

“Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is slated to be national security adviser. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis has been nominated as defense secretary. Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly is Trump’s nominee for secretary of homeland security. High-ranking officers such as Gen. David Petraeus and Adm. Michael Rogers have been rumored for other positions in the Trump administration.

“All are retired as well as seasoned veterans. They have been previously entrusted with the lives of thousands of soldiers, and they have traveled around the world and met many of the key leaders in Asia, Europe and the Middle East.

“Most of the criticism of the Flynn, Mattis and Kelly nominations is politically created hysteria, like past contrived bouts of partisan frenzy over subjects such as the ‘war on women’ or the ‘climate of hate.’

“Why, after reaching a high military rank before retirement, should a nominee earn more scrutiny than an ex-banker, ex-politician or ex-lawyer?

“Did anyone complain when Barack Obama appointed five retired generals and one retired admiral to either Cabinet posts or high-ranking positions in his administration? In fact, Flynn and Petraeus were first appointed to high office by Obama. . .”

Ben Ashford, UK Daily Mail: EXCLUSIVE: Rocky goes to Washington! Trump taps Sylvester Stallone for top ‘arts’ role”

  • President-elect Trump has approached the veteran actor for a top arts-related position in his administration, DailyMail.com has learned
  • The Rocky star, a long-time fan of The Donald, is said to be pumped over the job
  • The likely position would be Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency that doles out funds to aspiring artists and creative projects
  • If Stallone is formally offered that job, his appointment will have to be approved by Congress

NOTES:

Mark Levin, 12/15/16

On Thursday’s Mark Levin show, Senator Ted Kennedy once tried to interfere with Ronald Reagan’s reelection in 1984. He had selfish motives and was terribly misguided for seeing Reagan as a greater threat than the Soviet Union. Kennedy made overtures to top soviet officials and suggested that he would organize favorable American press coverage for the Russians. The Democrats are disgusting. President–Elect Donald Trump and his team should revisit KGB correspondence and realize that they shouldn’t be friends with the Russians.

“In addition, there is a smear job in the New York Times by certain people in the transition office joined in by Reince Priebus, Robert Gates, and Condoleezza Rice on John Bolton. The State Department is going to be run by Bush acolytes. They are coming to the defense of Rex Tillerson.

“After that, John McCain and Marco Rubio’s positions on Russia and Vladimir Putin are in line with Reagan’s position. Putin is an aggressive fascist and is not our friend.”
