President Trump’s heated
press conference press ass-chewing was met with hissy fits and pearl
clutching of epic proportion by members of the mainstream Obama sycophant
media. Chuck Todd proclaimed they are
not the enemy of the American people.
John Dickerson, host of CBS’s Face the Nation, admitted the American people have lost faith in the media’s credibility noting, “The press did all that good work ruining its reputation on its own and we can have a long conversation about what created that.”
I would hope that our leaders would never believe that any American desires to make another American an enemy. Let's dial it back.— Chuck Todd (@chucktodd) February 17, 2017

UPDATE: Welcome readers of The Pirates Cove. We wish to thank the good Admiral for linking to this post.
When President-elect Donald Trump was forming his cabinet former UN Ambassador John Bolton’s name was bandied about for Secretary of State, but that nomination never materialized because he reportedly had an issue with Bolton’s white mustache.
President Teddy Roosevelt served two brawny terms in the Oval Office. His successor, William Howard Taft, ascended to the presidency with lower nose foliage. Neither political party has nominated a candidate for president since Dewey challenged Truman.
“Uncle” Walter Cronkite read us the news with a mustache and we rejoiced in mustachioed Mark Spitz’s domination in the 1972 Summer Olympic Games in Munich. The mustache’s time in the sun seems to have passed. No more Robert Redford crumb catcher in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid; no more lip caterpillars sported by the likes of Frank Zappa, David Crosby, Barry Gibb or Freddy Mercury.
Washington Post reporters Phillip Rucker and Karen Tumulty revealed that part of the President-elect’s methodical searches for cabinet officials included seeking what he deemed to be an appropriate “look.” Was there ever a more dynamic mustache than that of Hollywood heartthrob Clark Gable?
When Bolton wasn’t nominated he showed his facial hair militancy by vigorously declaring:
I appreciate the grooming advice from the totally unbiased mainstream media, but I will not be shaving my #mustache.— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) December 22, 2016

Since Lt. Gen Michael Flynn
resigned was fired as National Security Adviser on
Monday amidst reports he misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations
he held with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sen. Ted Cruz has
called on the President to pick Bolton to fill that role.
“John is someone who is very well known here on the Hill. Republicans and Democrats know John Bolton well. He is someone who understands the world. He understands the threats of radical Islamic terrorism. He understands the threats of an overaggressive Putin,” Cruz told CNN's Manu Raju on Friday.
I tend to agree. He knows where the skeletons are hidden in the Obama-era State Department and he’s a man of deep conviction. The proof—he will not shave to get a job.

Rob Reiner starred in the role of Michael Stivic in the 1970s sitcom All in the Family. He was the live-in son-in-law who was the bane to Archie Bunker, a bigoted working-class family man with a heart of gold.
Archie’s opinions often reflected an ingrained ignorance, which were typically undone thanks to his hidden empathy and grumpy willingness to see the world changing around him.
He delighted in calling Stivic “Meathead”. When the two met each other in Season 2, Episode 5, Archie gleefully explained a “meathead” was someone who was “dead from the neck up.”
Rob Reiner AKA “Meathead” was a misguided moonbat then and remains so to this day.
Reiner appeared on MSNBC’s AM Joy on Sunday to blather about allegations National Security Adviser Michael Flynn discussed sanctions with a Russian ambassador and to deride President Trump calling him a “pathological liar” who is “mentally unstable”.
“We have somebody who is mentally unstable, who is a pathological liar—there’s no getting around that—who’s running our country,” he said. “And if we can survive this, that will strengthen us in a strange way.”
“We’re looking at a cancerous presidency that we cannot allow to spread,” Reiner said.
Here’s what Meathead tweeted yesterday:

The Boston Globe reported Chris Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, joined President Trump at the White House this week.
The Republican governor said while guest hosting a New York sports talk radio show that Trump pointed out the menu and told people to get whatever they wanted.
“This is what it’s like to be with Trump,” Christie said. “He says, ‘There’s the menu, you guys order whatever you want.’ And then he says, ‘Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.’”
Trump said “I’m telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous,” according to Christie.

During a press conference on Wednesday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Donald Trump, CNN’s Jim Acosta complained that the "fix was in" when President Trump only called on conservative news outlets.
Today, in a lengthy and wide-ranging press conference Acosta was called on by the president who repeatedly criticized Acosta’s cable network. He did not mention his colleague Don Lemon by name, but pointed out the 10:00 PM slot was “nearly all anti-Trump.”
It was like watching a heavyweight boxer brutalize a featherweight in the ring. You couldn’t look away.

"How dare Trump delegitimze an important institution like the press!" -- media which has been delegitimizing the president for four months— TotallyRealEPAFeed (@AceofSpadesHQ) February 16, 2017
After a buttoned-up year, Playboy magazine announced Monday it will return to featuring beautiful young women posing nude in its magazine.
Cooper Hefner, son of magazine founder Hugh Hefner tweeted Monday, "I'll be the first to admit that the way in which the magazine portrayed nudity was dated, but removing it entirely was a mistake."
26-year-old Scarlett Byrne, who played Pansy Parkinson in “The Half-Blood Prince” and “Deathly Hallows Part 1 and 2,” posed nude for Playboy’s March/April issue which hits newsstands February 28th. Byrne just happens to be engaged to Hefner.
So the Dow Jones Industrial Average is over twenty thousand, the California drought is over and naked women are back in Playboy. President Trump’s only been in office four weeks and already America is great again. Amirite boys?

When news broke that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn had resigned as National Security Adviser I felt disquieted and uneasy. That’s because the media latched on to the story portraying the young Trump Administration as being thrown into chaos. They wanted me to feel that way.
Democrats were emboldened by Flynn’s departure. “The reality is General Flynn was unfit to be the National Security Advisor, and should have been dismissed three weeks ago,” Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) and Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the top-ranking Democrats on the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, wrote in a joint statement.
“Now, we in Congress need to know who authorized his actions, permitted them, and continued to let him have access to our most sensitive national security information despite knowing these risks,” they added. “We need to know who else within the White House is a current and ongoing risk to our national security.”
Rep. Eliot Engel (D-NY), the top Foreign Affairs Committee Democrat, called for a “thorough, bipartisan investigation to get the complete picture of Russia’s interference” in the US presidential election following Flynn’s resignation.
The gloriously crushed Democrats haplessly cling to the notion President Trump’s Electoral College thumping of Granny Clinton was the direct result of Russian spies and the hacking of the DNC.
The Trump Administration poses a mortal threat to their entrenchment in government, and so has enlisted an army of Democrats, some Republicans, the "never Trump" die-hards, leftist thugs and anyone else they can browbeat into participating in what can reasonably be defined as an insurrection. They mean business. They are the embedded political enemy—the Dark Lord of Mordor from the Lord of the Rings.
I defer now to Michael Walsh’s piece in National Review:
Make no mistake about what's happening here: this is a rolling coup attempt, organized by elements of the intelligence community, particularly CIA and NSA, abetted by Obama-era holdovers in the understaffed Justice Department (Sally Yates, take a bow) and the lickspittles of the leftist media, all of whom have signed on with the "Resistance" in order to overturn the results of the November election.
Mike Flynn, a good man who saw the enemy clearly, and had the courage to name it, saw Russia not as an enemy but a geopolitical adversary with whom we could make common cause against Islam—and who also vowed to shake up a complacent and malfeasant Intelligence Community—was its first scalp, and an object lesson to new CIA Director Mike Pompeo should he have any reformist notions. As for the media, having previously failed to take down Trump aides Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway, Flynn was the next best thing; their joy today is unbounded.
So what must Trump do now? First, complete his cabinet. Second, fire every fireable federal employee in the leak-prone agencies, including the Central Intelligence Agency. Third, start taking operational security seriously. Fourth, assume everything you say will leak to the media and be spun as malevolently as possible. Fifth, trust nobody.
Finally, it is being widely reported that Vice Admiral Robert Harward was offered the job of National Security Adviser. If Harward accepts, he is likely to bring in his own team, from deputy on down, with a focus on national security types with some experience under their belts.
According to Foreign Policy, Harward thinks of himself as a national security professional—and indeed once served on the National Security Council staff, during the Bush Administration. Before that, early in the Afghan war, he headed the Special Operations task force in Kandahar.
Harward also would work well with Defense Secretary James Mattis. When Mattis was chief of Central Command, Harward was his deputy. Mattis trusted him enough to put him in charge of planning for war with Iran. Mattis has urged Harward to take the NSA job.
