Odd Brock
— Open Blogger

David Brock used to be one of the good guys. Seriously. Back in the 90s, he used to write investigative pieces for the conservative American Spectator magazine, mainly concerning the Clintons and their shady activities, both sexual and financial. I thought he also wrote the definitive piece on Janet Reno's mass murders in Waco that also appeared in the Spectator, but I am unable to find the piece online, so maybe I'm confusing Brock with some other author. Anyway, suddenly one day he went full Cahlres Jhosnon, "apologized" to the Clintons for all the bad things he wrote about them (without retracting a single word), and started the "Media Matters" website. MM is supposed to be a site that ferrets out "conservative bias" in the media, but that's actually its secondary purpose. Its primary purpose has been promoting, defending, raising money and running interference for the political careers of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

And as such, he was a major player in thr 2016 election. But "some", as they say, are getting tired of David Brock and wish he'd go away:

Many in the party—Clinton loyalists, Obama veterans, and Bernie supporters alike—talk about the man not as a sought-after ally in the fight against Trumpism, but as a nuisance and a hanger-on, overseeing a colossal waste of cash. And former employees say that he has hurt the cause.

Maybe it's because he promises way more than he actually delivers:

Brock bragged early last year that his team had assembled a mountain of damning oppo that could “knock Trump Tower down to the sub-basement.” But Trump Tower still stands, and Brock’s groups failed to help Clinton to victory.

And then there's his personal issues:

“I met with him a couple times—he’s fucking weird,” a former Obama administration official, who also requested anonymity, told The Daily Beast. “I felt like I was meeting Mugatu from Zoolander… I don’t know what the fuck [Brock’s network] did besides raise a ton of money, and I don’t think the after-action report on 2016 says we need more David Brock. Probably the opposite is true.”

Yeah, I've heard this before, that Brock has got a somewhat, uh, "quirky" personality that makes him hard to work with.

But not all of the Democrats dislike Brock. For example, James Carville said

“David has a really good relationship with a lot of donors and people who can help the party. If I were them, I would be thinking of ways I could work with David Brock, as opposed to having a tribunal determining the extent of party purity. I don’t think we need to walk around with ideological chastity belts.”

Of course, Carville himself is a Clinton creature, so it's perhaps not surprising that he's in Brock's corner. But perhaps the Democratic Party should consider purging itself of the Clintons, their hangers-on and anybody who ever had anything to do with them in order to move forward. So hand GTFO notices to Brock, Carville, Sid Bluementhal, whatsisface Mook who ran Hillary's campaign, who really should be fired for being an incompetent boob, the whole Clinton clique needs to be gone. I would think it's obvious that the Clintons are only in politics to enrich themselves, so I would think the decision to give them all the left foot of fellowship would be a no-brainer.

Oh heck no! I want the Democrats to tear and rip and rend themselves as their factions fight for bloody handed supremacy leaving them impossible to reform in any kind of self-supporting fashion. Like tribes of Orcs after the influence of the One Ring is gone.

10 Mounds of coke and parades of boy toys are what Brock wants. The Clintons made sure he got them so long as he did the job. Then he screwed up. Cokeless and sucking off hobos is no way to go through life, Dave.

20 An argument can be made that the Clintons influence hollowed out the Democrats. People that should have been gone long ago held onto position, and promising upcomers missed out on getting the necessary experience for higher position. The only ones left are those the Clintons ignored as irrelevant or have in their pockets already.

39 We used to get the American Spectator way back then, and I remember all the stuff he wrote on the Clintons. I remember being amazed when he whipped around 180 degrees and wondering what the heck was going on. Didn't he also come out as gay at the same time? I don't know what that would have to do with anything, but I seem to remember something like that, like he was getting things off his chest all at once.

59 People talk about the Dems smelling their own farts about Hillary getting elected and how it has hurt them. It sure has. BUT, they did the same thing back when Obama got elected by pushing that Obamacare turd before the 2010 census. The subsequent meltdown from that cost them the ability to redistrict and has thus kept them out of the House majority for the last seven years. These are not smart people.

64 Was Brock the guy with multiple 'charities' and an agency headed by him which handled all 'charitable' donations with a 15% commission on each transaction?

Each 'charity' would 'donate' to the next, through the agency, until all the money was taken up in commissions.

Or was it another of the Clinton Crime Syndicate this was revealed about?

Posted by: davidt at January 31, 2017 12:20 PM (XoldI)

65 Mugatu - heh.  He looks like it, that hair!

And some background as to why Brock is even more desperate for money now than usual - last year he lost a long running real estate based legal case to his former live-in boytoy, and he's got to cough up some serious cash to make good on the judgment against him.

That story explains about as much about him as I need to know - apparently he always stabs those close to him in the back, whether its in public or in private.

Posted by: Tom Servo at January 31, 2017 12:21 PM (6Ix+v)

66 again from memory, Brock was 'outed' in the late 1990s, but he also was apparently disappointed that his book on Hillary was not well received on the right, maybe too sympathetic to her. I still have a stack of American Spectator mags from then, maybe I can dig something out. No promises, though.

71 Thesis: The Clintons took control of the Inner D Party despite Obama being President. Combination of Clinton having an Administration-in-waiting and being more aggressive, and the Obamans being relatively lazy. Hence, Biden wasn't allowed to run ("not my night, I could have taken that bum apart"). So Hillary ran unopposed, effectively. Bernie was supposed to be the Washington Generals and surprised because Hillary sucked so much. So now we have a power vacuum in the D party. Does Obama fill it? Does Hillary hang on hoping Trump implodes spectacularly? Does Soros run it through CAP? Because the D party is Democratic in name only.

128 I don't think David Brock was ever one of the good guys. If Wikipedia is to be believed, he quit the right in part due to disappointment with sales of his Hillary bio. In addition to that, I saw quotes from him (I'm in a hurry and he's too much of a cocksucker to actually look it up) where he talked about his dishonest past and how he'd now seen the light. As if his new politics are here because he's finally decided to "come clean". Not everyone is good just because they work for us. Some people just hop along with whatever they find profitable. In the 1990s, Brock was a right-wing lying douchebag. Today, he's a left-wing lying douchebag. If you ask me, his transformation has been minimal.

That was what appealed to me first about Trump. Left vs right paradigm just didn't matter to him. Mostly because it has become essentially nonfunctional. He realized that moving to a proAmerica vs antiAmerica  paradigm was existential.

You're exactly right. The Nevertrumpers proved that there is still money to made straddling the fence.

Seem to recall some financial shenanigans with a gal whom people go to to find worthy causes to donate to - and as such she gets a cut of the charitable donation.

179 Has trump ever done something like that ? Yeah, every single time someone threatened or passed him in the polls, he crushed them like a bug. That's when he came out with the implications that Cruz' dad was involved in killing Kennedy, called McCain a fake hero, etc. He's kind of nasty when he senses a rival too close. And that's what they are counting on. My guess is that they figure Bannon is keeping the tone of the White House more conservative and if he falls out of favor and is crushed, the whole tone shifts. I can't say they are absolutely wrong here.

I last had a Bud about five years ago. And before that another five years.

I don't think the ads are working.....

187 83 O/T If any of you are investors, I'd prepare to sell Budweiser short in preparation for its Superbowl ad. I'm expecting a 7 % drop and lots of squirming. Check out the ad on Breitbart. 'Ugly Americans Harass Hero Immigrant". So - Rogen/Schumer learning experience was what, "we came up short... we need to go FULL retard!"...?

188 My guess is that they figure Bannon is keeping the tone of the White House more conservative and if he falls out of favor and is crushed

I don't understand this.

Bannon is not competing for an office against Trump.

Maybe it's me, but I don't follow the logic.

190 *Twitter is busted on my computer. No matter what browser I try, twitter looks like I'm using a text-only browser interspersed with photos. Very odd. Java is up to date. And twitter appears to be the only site that's busted. Posted by: OregonMuse, deplorable since 2004 at January 31, 2017 06:30 PM (tzoeb)* KBdaBear's site looks just fine.

193 134 And Yeungling is damn fine beer. Posted by: Mr Aspirin Factory at January 31, 2017 06:13 PM (89T5c) I've been drinking it for years. For the inauguration I bought a case of Victory Beer. Holy cow, that stuff is good, although pricier than Yuengling. It's also from the Philly area (Downingtown, PA). I don't know whether they have a national reach or not.

195 This is racist and I apologize in advance. When I was learning to cocktail, we had Filipinos that would come in. I had a hard time understanding their order. The girl training me told me to bring a 7 and 7 and a bud light, they'll drink them. She was right.

196 180 Has trump ever done something like that ?

Yeah, every single time someone threatened or passed him in the polls, he crushed them like a bug. That's when he came out with the implications that Cruz' dad was involved in killing Kennedy, called McCain a fake hero, etc. He's kind of nasty when he senses a rival too close. And that's what they are counting on.

My guess is that they figure Bannon is keeping the tone of the White House more conservative and if he falls out of favor and is crushed, the whole tone shifts. I can't say they are absolutely wrong here.

That was just the game beeing played. Smeer works , he won. Check out scott adams (dilbert cartoonist) explain how trump work as a master persuader.

197 Imagine waking up every day these last 25-odd years as a Clinton liege. Another day, another donor to shake down, another Saudi prince to suck-up to, another witness to suborn, another victim to blacken, another bribe to deliver, more lies to spew. And now it's over for you. Your efforts have gone for naught. You will never again come near the levers of power. And because you have been used and lost, no one wants anything to do with you. Your value on the national stage is less than zero. And now you have to face the whole awful rest of your life as a has-been, a political Bill Buckner, shunned by decent people as though you were a disgusting mess on the sidewalk. And you know that when you have to face your Creator, when He asks you what you did with the life and talent He gave you, you can only say, "I was a bagman for the Clintons" before you are consigned to eternal damnation.

198 Trump going after Jeb hurt Trump slightly (and it was a dick move), but was fatal to Jeb. What Trump did to him was mild compared to what dems would have done to him. At the time I felt thankful that someone revealed the glass jaw on this oxygen thief. He was an unwarrented dick to Cruz and Ben Carson too, but it was a necessary thing, if the primary prepares them in the slightest for the general. Ben Carson is much too nice for politics.

200 Trump won. There is no rival. They are of the opinion that if they can get Trump to sense Bannon as a rival for who controls White House policy and is calling the shots, they can get him destroyed.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at January 31, 2017 01:53 PM (39g3+)

201 Bannon's role is wartime consigliere. Trump sets policy (I could tell you most of the policy -- it's no secret). Most of the other Trump appointees have missions about specific policies in their bailiwick. Bannon gets together with Trump and they scheme. They've war-gamed at least the first 100 days, and probably more.

202 I read that Trump filed for re-election the day of his inauguration. This prevents PACs and non-profits from going after him. If true, that is bad news for Brock.

203 RE: Pizzagate: Amazing how people say "That's a hoax." I ask, "So do rich people ever have child-sex rings?" "Well, of course, but not this time. This one's a hoax." "When, then?" "Well, not any of the other times you can name, either. Those were all debunked, too." "So they've just never been caught?" "They will someday." "I thought conspiracy theories were absurd because 'no way could you keep a secret among that many people.' So when are we going to catch rich people raping kids?" "Oh, someday... but not this time. This one is a hoax." (Had this conversation many times.)

205 Strange how none of these articles about Brock mentions that he keeps 1/3 of donations off the top, through a sequence of money transfers between organizations he controls, with 12.5% commissions on each transfer.
