D.C. Whispers Report On Republican Delay Of Trump Agenda Confirmed In Real Time

48-hours earlier, D.C. Whispers went live with the following headline:

Ryan Works With Pelosi & Schumer To Stall Trump Economic Recovery

Some (foolishly) doubted the story’s legitimacy. Today, Drudge went with this related headline:


Rep. Tom McClintock, R-Calif., fields questions from an audience at the Tower Theatre in Roseville, Calif. on Feb. 4. He faced the rowdy crowd and had to be escorted by police as protesters followed him shouting "Shame on you!"

The Drudge story links to a just-published Politico Article outlining how fearful Republicans have become over the “repeal of Obamacare” backlash:

“…Also discussed at the closed-door conference meeting was how to engage Democratic constituents to ensure they feel they’re being heard. After Reichert (R-Wash.) spoke about the security side, Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) stood up to talk about how to engage constituents in a “congenial” manner.

…The presentation was particularly important, those in attendance said, because it’s not just the most politically vulnerable, moderate members being targeted by protesters. Conservatives have also seen Democratic activists show up at events, including one recently hosted by Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), who ousted former Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Many of these lawmakers in safe districts have never dealt with such severe blowback.”

And here is the D.C. Whispers report which included very pertinent information on the very same subject made public 48-hours before the Politico piece:

“…The first evidence of this tactical delay on the part of Ryan to ensure nothing getting done remains the D.C. status-quo, is to declare almost all attention/energy/focus will be on dealing with “fixing” Obamacare.

Pay attention to the wording. Watch “repeal and replace” become secondary to “fixing.” Ryan intends to initiate a patch-work approach that will take up a great deal of legislative time, receive significant media attention,  but in the end, get little actually accomplished by of way of “repeal and replace.”  In the meantime, the delay in such critical components of the Trump economic recover plan – namely sweeping tax reform, will be further delayed.

In effect, Paul Ryan and his cadre of Establishment Republicans will do to Trump what they rarely appeared willing to do against Barack Obama – namely use the power of the legislature to contain a president’s agenda.”




Valerie Jarrett Threatening To “Shut It All Down” Following Stunning Obamatrade Defeat?

Was it a matter of her trying to restore the long-ago lost luster of her own historical importance? Was it a case of doing the bidding of Clinton Machine operatives? Or perhaps a momentary lapse in her years-long devotion to all things Obama? Whatever her reasons were, the dramatic rift that now exists between Nancy Pelosi and the Obama White House is being reported across the Mainstream Media since it broke open (and first reported on here at D.C. Whispers) last Friday.

Above: The Obama White House fully expected a close vote on the “Obamatrade” bill on Friday. What they didn’t expect was to have House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi personally escort the president into Congress and then quickly turn on him by refusing to give him the support needed to have any chance of the legislation passing. This is said to have enraged both Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett who were left stunned and embarrassed by the overwhelming and bipartisan vote count that was a powerful rebuke of the president’s now-vanishing influence.

This morning The Hill reported on the Pelosi about-face and the resulting landslide opposition vote with the following:

“Friday’s failure raised questions about how much more Obama will be able to accomplish with just 18 months left in his presidency.”

The Washington Post declared the Obamatrade vote a “major defeat” for the White House and that Pelosi had earlier on Friday indicated to the president she was “leaning no” but then made a far stronger and much more dramatic no vote speech on the House floor – a gesture that initially frustrated and then soon after enraged, both Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett.

President Obama’s approval rating has also fallen to a five-month low according to the RCP polling average.

It is also now being whispered that Valerie Jarrett is at this very moment threatening to “shut it all down” with a still-pending federal budget agreement. If so, things appear on the verge of getting very-very ugly between the White House and Congress…
