Farewell Lies: Obama Returns To Scene Of The Crime – As Trump Triumph Looms

Tonight the slimy filth will return to the scene of the crime. Chicago.


Chicago Clown

Tonight Barack Obama returns to the scene of the crime. We are not talking about this month’s crime of black racists who imprisoned and attacked a mentally impaired white man and forced him to repeat their anti-Trump anti-white people rants – in Chicago. We are not talking about the crime of the thousands of people, many black, shot and killed every year the past eight years – in Chicago. The “crime” we refer to is the filthy pool of slime that nurtured Barack Obama – Tony Rezko’s – Chicago. Chicago, the “toddling town” that unfortunately “Billy Sunday could not shut down“. Chicago – the filthy slimy political Hellhole that gave rise to the corruption, the abomination called Barack Obama.

As documented so well by Newsbusters, Big Media has “drooled” every time Barack Obama opened his mouth. Newsbusters’ big failure is the lack of a Judith Warner mention as she masturbated herself in the New York Times with fantasies of sex with Barack Obama.

What Barack Obama will say tonight does not matter. We only commemorate this last “farewell” excretion by him as an opportunity to gloat and laugh at the boob that failed. Proof of the totality of failures by Barack Obama can be found today in Washington D.C. as Senator Jeff Sessions appears before the Senate Judiciary Committee to be confirmed as the next Attorney General of the United States. In the following days more hearings will take place as the Trump triumph takes shape and the Obama failures are wiped away.

Barack Obama failed in all his goals. For a while Obama divided America and for a while Obama appeared anxious to destroy America – but Obama failed.

Tonight, in the corruption known as Chicago, Barack Obama will excrete more verbiage, diarrhea logorrhea, to try to explain his failures and disguise the failures as successes. Only the stupid or corrupt will believe anything Barack Obama says tonight.

Farewell addresses by former presidents once had a purpose larger than themselves. The two most important ones are from the first president, George Washington, and from Dwight Eisenhower who like the current President-Elect never held elective office before becoming president. Both of these farewell addresses are pertinent to the challenges about to be faced by President Trump.

George Washington’s Farewell Address sounds very much like Donald J. Trump’s presidential campaign:

In his farewell Presidential address, George Washington advised American citizens to view themselves as a cohesive unit and avoid political parties and issued a special warning to be wary of attachments and entanglements with other nations.

The entire 32 page Farewell Address by Washington should be read to fully understand the challenges about to be faced by Donald J. Trump. Much of what Washington wrote will resonate for those that followed the Trump campaign and watch the new administration take shape.

Donald J. Trump ran for president on an “America First” platform and promised to “Make America Great Again – For All“. Trump also often mocked the very political party whose nomination he sought. In one debate he took particular glee in attacking the policies of the last Republican president whose brother he defeated during the primaries. Trump not only demolished the Bush family of Republicans. Trump also demolished the Clinton family and exposed as the failure he is, Barack Obama.

As pertinent as the first president’s farewell address is, the 34th president’s farewell address is even more pertinent.



We’ve seen President-Elect Donald J. Trump already begin to take on the power players President Dwight David Eisenhower warned about. Consider what President Eisenhower said and Donald J. Trump statements on his doubts about the so-called “consensus” on anthropomorphic climate change. Here’s President Eisenhower:

Akin to, and largely responsible for the sweeping changes in our industrial-military posture, has been the technological revolution during recent decades.

In this revolution, research has become central; it also becomes more formalized, complex, and costly. A steadily increasing share is conducted for, by, or at the direction of, the Federal government.

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present — and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance, and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system — ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.

What Eisenhower warned about has come to pass. Judith Curry:

[autoplay video removed]

She excelled at pointing out the uncertainties and deficiencies of climate modeling. Given the thoroughly politicized nature of climate science her efforts to clarify what is known and unknown by climate science caused her to be pilloried as “anti-science” by other researchers who are convinced that man-made global warming is leading toward catastrophe. In her blog annoucement Curry explains her resignation:

A deciding factor was that I no longer know what to say to students and postdocs regarding how to navigate the CRAZINESS in the field of climate science. Research and other professional activities are professionally rewarded only if they are channeled in certain directions approved by a politicized academic establishment — funding, ease of getting your papers published, getting hired in prestigious positions, appointments to prestigious committees and boards, professional recognition, etc.

How young scientists are to navigate all this is beyond me, and it often becomes a battle of scientific integrity versus career suicide (I have worked through these issues with a number of skeptical young scientists).

Let me relate an interaction that I had with a postdoc about a month ago. She wanted to meet me, as an avid reader of my blog. She works in a field that is certainly relevant to climate science, but she doesn’t identify as a climate scientist. She says she gets questioned all the time about global warming issues, and doesn’t know what to say, since topics like attribution, etc. are not topics that she explores as a scientist. WOW, a scientist that knows the difference! I advised her to keep her head down and keep doing the research that she thinks interesting and important, and to stay out of the climate debate UNLESS she decides to dig in and pursue it intellectually. Personal opinions about the science and political opinions about policies that are sort of related to your research expertise are just that – personal and political opinions. Selling such opinions as contributing to a scientific consensus is very much worse than a joke.

As relevant as Eisenhower’s warning about the potential corruption of scientific research by the power of government is, it is Eisenhower’s warnings about the “military-industrial complex” that most resonate today:

A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little resemblance to that known by any of my predecessors in peacetime, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Until the latest of our world conflicts, the United States had no armaments industry. American makers of plowshares could, with time and as required, make swords as well. But now we can no longer risk emergency improvisation of national defense; we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net income of all United States corporations.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every State house, every office of the Federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.

Donald J. Trump, to much mockery from Big Media, has warned major arms makers such as Lockheed Martin and the Boeing Corporation. President-Elect Trump has also made clear there is much to be reformed in military procurement to stop the massive waste, fraud, and abuse of taxpayer money:

WASHINGTON Pentagon leaders and thousands of military contractors across the country might be wondering just what President-elect Donald Trump has in store for them.

In two tweets this month that sent shockwaves through defense companies and their lobbying firms, Trump criticized the spiraling costs of building a new Air Force One and a fleet of F-35 fighter jets. [snip]

“He’s going to encounter a Pentagon bureaucracy that will instinctively say ‘no’ to most reforms he proposes,” said Todd Harrison, a former defense lobbyist and retired Air Force Reserves captain who’s now an analyst with the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. [snip]

“They don’t scrutinize the original bids carefully enough, so contractors come in with a low bid while understanding that they’re not going to meet it,” Hartung said. “And then the Pentagon will add requirements and new features along the way. Eventually the costs get out of control.”

By the time that’s evident, however, inertia keeps the program going. “Once they put a certain amount of money on the table, they’re reluctant to end or dramatically scale it back,” Hartung said.

Whether Trump will be able to change that culture is what experts in Pentagon procurement are watching. [snip]

The pre-inaugural meetings with the defense firm bosses give Harrison some grounds to hope. The meeting is in keeping with Trump’s penchant for the unconventional approach.

Afterward, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg pledged to get Air Force One built for less than the $4 billion budgeted. Lockheed Martin’s CEO Marillyn Hewson was less committal, pledging only that her company is dedicated to “delivering an affordable aircraft to our U.S. military and our allies.”

I think he will be less likely to listen to the bureaucracy,” Harrison said of Trump. “What we’ve seen so far is that he’s more self-confident and he’s willing to say things and do things that buck the establishment. He almost takes joy in it.”

President Donald J. Trump will need to fight hard against the military-industrial complex, as President Eisenhower warned. On December 15, 2016 it was revealed that the Pentagon tried to hide a report that documented one out of four dollars, $125 billion, of the Pentagon budget was wasted.

You can be sure that Barack Obama will not mention the hundreds of billions of dollars wasted by himself. Throw in the many failed Obama policies at home and abroad and the waste by Barack Obama amounts to trillions of dollars and eight full years.

So total are Obama’s failures that for the next eight years (yes, eight!) President-Elect Donald J. Trump will Make America Great Again with relative ease. When you go from the bottom of the barrel, Barack Obama, to the towering figure of Donald J. Trump, the future can’t come soon enough.

The future begins on January 20-17.

On January 20-17, President Donald J. Trump should read and be enlightened by the farewell speeches of Washington and Eisenhower. President Trump can use Obama’s farewell nonsense to fuel the fireplace in the Oval Office.

  3. Recession coming:

    http://www.politico.com/story/2017/01/trump-clinton-loyalists-jobs-233296

    Obama and Clinton loyalists grapple with Trump recession

    Trump’s unexpected win has Democrats coping with a vastly smaller job market for their skills.

    The job market is about to get even more crowded for Washington Democrats, as thousands of Obama appointees join the hundreds of Clinton campaign staffers looking for employment.

    There’s rarely been less demand for their services.

    The Trump tornado is tearing up post-election planning around the Beltway. It’s not just that those 4,000 administration jobs are no longer available to Hillary for America alumni, or that failed Senate candidates like Russ Feingold and Katie McGinty won’t be able to hire their staff on the Hill. There are also the lobbying firms, trade associations and corporate government affairs offices that are pitching senior Obama aides’ resumes into the round file while scrambling to hire operatives with Republican connections.

    It’s insult to injury for a generation of young operatives who are still managing their shock and grief from Hillary Clinton’s loss. And for those who want to fight to keep President Barack Obama’s legacy from being erased, there aren’t a lot of places ready to pay them to do it.

    It feels like there are just thousands of us trying to find a job, and there are no jobs,” said Mira Patel, a longtime Clinton aide who went from her Senate office to the State Department and, starting last summer, her presidential campaign. [snip]

    Some Obama staffers looking to parlay their White House pedigree into private sector gigs suffered their own Trump slump immediately after the election.

    One administration official said he was deep into negotiations with two tech companies in early November, but after the election, “there was a pretty clear about-face.”

    One of the tech companies’ offices got in touch the day after the election “stating that they needed to ‘re-scope the role in light of the results.’” The other company, the official said, was “far less euphemistic in saying we need Republicans, not Democrats.” [snip]

    People are in shock,” said Anastasia Kessler-Dellaccio, 35, who quit her job at Sister Cities International to run Foreign Policy Professionals for Hillary. Some Clinton campaign workers say they’ve lost their bearings, so rattled they are by the differences in Trump’s values from those represented by Obama and Clinton.

    Kessler-Dellaccio added, “I think people, myself included, are trying to figure out, ‘How do I recalibrate my dreams?’” [snip]

    It’s no longer about finding the “perfect fit,” said Patel. “A lot of us are looking for any fit.”

    Clinton campaign alumni are still struggling with how to talk about their work.

    “Some of them are thinking, ‘Oh, am I going to be judged for having lost?” said Finkelstein. Others worry about sounding tone deaf when they try to highlight their individual accomplishments within the broader operation – though career advisers say that’s exactly what they should do.

    “I have two sets of resumes,” said Kessler-Dellaccio. One highlights all her work fundraising and recruiting volunteers for Clinton. But after repeatedly seeing job postings looking for Republican connections, Kessler-Dellaccio says she “quite literally stripped out all of the Hillary stuff” out of her alternate C.V.

    She added, “I have friends who even on LinkedIn have removed any Democratic Party alignment because they’re afraid if employers see too much Hillary stuff they’re not going to get a job.”

  4. watching the Sessions hearings…so far some observations:

    Sessions holding his own…(his granddaughter so darn cute)

    Ted Cruz…in his element…imo…excellent job so far…bravo!

    the hypocrisy of the Dems is so glaring…

    wish someone would turn the tables on them (and the democratic pundits) when they ask Sessions questions about his position 30 years ago…and say “will you have the same opinion and stance if Keith Ellison is to become the head of the DNC…will you hold him responsible for things he said and did…anti-american and racial comments he made many years ago…?

    imo…the dems and their protestors…and their re-hanging of the ‘cops are pigs’ painting are hanging themselves…they look unreasonable and out of touch with simple common sense and basic manners…

  5. Dick “Someday, an illegal alien will be president”
    ———-
    Some day Charles Manson will be president and dickhead Dick Durban will be his vp.

  6. It’s been a terrible eight (8) years and a nation very divided. I again thank administrator for the time, expense and thoughtful analysis running this blog. I also appreciate the posters despite my not being in good standing with some. It’s not personal and I have always been upfront. In fact , initially I predicted a Trump victory but ultimately I went with my heart and voted for Hillary. I would like to continue to be a small part of the board as there are areas that I am in full support with Trump and very open minded about what is to come. We have all been unified in our repulsion of Obama and this long victory lap is really narcissistic and unbecoming. Unfortunately, the MSM will spend the next 100 years writing about Obama as one the greatest Presidents . I am hopeful Bibi can show all how Obama, Kerry , Rice , Powers and Jarrett conspired to put Israel in the terrible predicament she know faces . Moreover, Obama was very anti-America and weakened our standing in the world.

  7. Kudos to Tapper for telling Ira Madison III:

    Disgusting tweet. The little girl is his granddaughter. Delete your account and find some humanity.

    *************************

    the Dims need to get their humanity back…so angry and reactive they look stupid and obstructionist…and cold hearted…

  8. S, the confirmation hearing on Sessions is a big snooze. For weeks we read there would be fireworks as Sessions would be exposed as a racist or a something or other. Instead, not much has been learned. What has been learned about Sessions is he has an Asian son-in-law. So much for the racist nonsense.

    Fortunately, as during the Trump election rallies, there have been some protestors who have made for welcome interruptions by making fools of themselves, as Sessions smiled.

    Overall, things are going very well and prove once again how smart the Trump transition is functioning. Sessions is being a perfect bore.
    Sessions is refusing to take the bait, the few times he has been dangled some bait by people like Franken and Feinstein. Why is boring Sessions smart? Because he is writing the template for the nominees to come who have had no experience in these circuses.

    When Tillerson comes up for his hearing, never having been subjected to a Washington circus such as a confirmation hearing before, he can mimic Sessions. Tillerson is no doubt being instructed by the transition team to avoid controversy and do what Sessions is doing.

    We do wish that Sessions had hit back at Feinstein when Feinstein spoke about sex trafficking of little girls. We wish Sessions had responded with an attack against the recently passed California law which legalized child prostitution and told Feinstein to either do something about the California law, shut up about sex trafficking, or go fu*k herself. Instead Sessions was a gentleman and blathered about something nice and how sex with children was bad.

  9. Obama’s legacy: When Germany is more demonstrative of support for Israel than America:

  10. White women not welcome at “women’s march” on Washington:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/09/us/womens-march-on-washington-opens-contentious-dialogues-about-race.html

    Many thousands of women are expected to converge on the nation’s capital for the Women’s March on Washington the day after Donald J. Trump’s inauguration. Jennifer Willis no longer plans to be one of them.

    Ms. Willis, a 50-year-old wedding minister from South Carolina, had looked forward to taking her daughters to the march. Then she read a post on the Facebook page for the march that made her feel unwelcome because she is white.

    The post, written by a black activist from Brooklyn who is a march volunteer, advised “white allies” to listen more and talk less. It also chided those who, it said, were only now waking up to racism because of the election.

    “You don’t just get to join because now you’re scared, too,” read the post. “I was born scared.”

    Stung by the tone, Ms. Willis canceled her trip.

    “This is a women’s march,” she said. “We’re supposed to be allies in equal pay, marriage, adoption. Why is it now about, ‘White women don’t understand black women’?

    Remember when Oprah, the women’s advocate, abandoned the woman in the race for her preferred race male in 2008? Nothing’s changed.

    Even as they are working to ensure a smooth and unified march next week, the national organizers said they made a deliberate decision to highlight the plight of minority and undocumented immigrant women and provoke uncomfortable discussions about race.

    “This was an opportunity to take the conversation to the deep places,” said Linda Sarsour, a Muslim who heads the Arab American Association of New York and is one of four co-chairwomen of the national march. “Sometimes you are going to upset people.” …

    “Yes, equal pay is an issue,” Ms. Sarsour said. “But look at the ratio of what white women get paid versus black women and Latina women.”

    Anyone still wonder why Hillary lost the votes of a majority of white women? White men too. Hillary lost white women because she campaigned more for Muslim women who allow themselves to be abused by their religion.

    We predict a fiasco of anti-white hatred under the guise of progress, hate under the guise of enlightenment, intolerance under the guise of tolerance.

  11. JB
    It’s not personal. Its just annoying that you keep mentioning your loyalty to Hillary and refuse to discuss her disloyalty to you on any number of policies including her support of the Muslim Brotherhood at the expense of Israel and middle east peace.

  12. Well the election is over and she lost . It makes my loyalty a moot point . I think you will find dozens of posts over the years about how disappointed I was in Hillary over the Middle East policies of the administration she served . I also was never a fan of her aide whom via her husband and family association’s ended up being a huge liability, yet incredibly remains Hillays confidant.. I am deeply disappointed in that aspect of her judgment or lack thereof.
    Anyway, interesting article on Bibi and Obama essentially calling one another untruthful.

  13. jb,

    My heart belongs to Hillary ’08 and what might have been, too. Ofucktard has been a pox on the nation.

    I do think she changed and did totally sell out to Soros. Hillary ’16 was just not the same. Something was not right.

    I voted for Trump. For the Nation. For me, not so much.

  14. This Trump guy just keep getting better and better:

    https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/2582745/donald-trump-has-asked-for-bust-of-winston-churchill-to-be-put-back-in-the-oval-office-after-obama-replaced-it-with-martin-luther-king/

    DONALD Trump has asked Britain to send Winston Churchill’s bust back to the White House so he can return it to the Oval Office, The Sun can reveal.

    The request was put to Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson by the President Elect’s senior advisers during talks in New York three days ago.

    Last night, Downing Street confirmed that Theresa May has agreed to a loan of the famous sculpture again.

    The gesture marks a diplomatic coup for the PM in her bid to win influence over the unpredictable new US leader.

    A bitter row over the bust’s location has raged for seven years since outgoing President Barack Obama replaced the wartime leader’s image with one of Martin Luther King in 2009.

    Since then, it has been kept at the British Embassy in Washington DC.

    Trump’s closest advisers Jared Kushner and Steven Bannon relayed the request for the bust’s return after revealing their boss was a big fan of the legendary Tory, and had even read Boris’s biography of him.

    A No 10 spokesman told The Sun last night: “The Prime Minister is happy to loan the Churchill bust to the White House and will be delighted to view it on display when she visits this Spring”.

    The bust – by British artist Sir Jacob Epstein – was originally presented to George W. Bush in July 2001 and stayed in his office through out his presidency.

    The idea of returning it to the Oval Office was first suggested to the property billionaire by ex-UKIP boss Nigel Farage in November last year, when he became the first British politician to visit him after the US election.

    Boris renewed the controversy during the EU referendum campaign with a stinging attack on Mr Obama.

    Hitting back at the US leader’s backing for the Remain campaign, Mr Johnson said the bust’s removal was evidence of his “ancestral dislike of the British Empire”.

  15. Not so nice, but definitely amusing.

    http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-01-10/here-full-35-page-report-alleging-trump-was-cultivated-supported-and-assisted-russia

    For those pressed for time, here is the best – as in most laughable – part, discussing “Trump’s personal obsessions and sexual perversions”, in which we learn that when staying at the Ritz Carlton Moscow hotel, in order to defile a bed in which Obama had stayed in previously, he employed “a number of prostitutes to perform “golden showers” show in front of him.” Good stuff.

  16. After reading some of the “replies” of those who come back here after The Uppity blog

    NOT INTERESTED in your sob story!

    I voted FOR AMERICA FIRST! NOT for illegals and refugees FIRST!

    I despise everything that Hillary Rodham Clinton BECAME in between 2008 and 2016

    I just keep asking myself DID SHE CHANGE or was she just a effin FRAUD from the get go!!!

    I worked for her in 08 and every time I phone banked for DJT this campaign I REMINDED PEOPLE I WAS A FORMER CLINTON WORKER

    I am sooooo thankful she lost

    I am NOT keen on this GOP however and Trump will have to hand their asses to them to get stuff done but it will happen

    They are already getting weak spined on ObamaCare

    Repeal it and start OVER

    NO MANDATE NO TAX

  17. What Would You Do About Russia?
    By Larry Johnson – Tuesday, 10 January 2017 71
    Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter

    Let me give you the following situation:

    Relations have worsened with Mexico over President Trump’s efforts to build a wall and staunch the influx of illegal immigrants. As a result, Mexico has turned to Russia. Yesterday, the first of the 87 Russian tanks and 144 military vehicles were being unloaded in the port of Tampico on Friday. The equipment and 3,500 Russian troops are to be deployed along Mexico’s northern frontier. The deployment aims to allay worries of potential United States aggression on Mexico’s border.

    The arrival of the equipment and troops marks the start of a new phase of Russia’s Operation Atlantic Resolve, which foresees the continuous presence of an Russian armoured brigade combat team in Mexico on a nine-month rotational basis.

    Other allies of Russia are also increasing their presence in Mexico, with Iran sending fighter jets to the Baja Peninsula, while a battalion of troops, tanks and light armour will deploy to Juarez in the spring.

    Are you okay with this? Is this a hostile act? What should the United States do?

    Let me venture a wild guess–this would spark hysteria in the United States and most Americans would be alarmed and outraged by these actions by Russia and Iran. This would be further proof that Russia is intent on world domination and the United States has no choice but to take strong action to challenge this attempt by Russia and Iran to get a military foothold in North America.

    Okay, now let me tell you the truth.

    The largest shipment of US brigades since the fall of the Soviet Union is arriving in northern Germany.

    The first of the 87 tanks and 144 military vehicles were being unloaded in the port of Bremerhaven on Friday.

    The equipment and 3,500 US troops are to be deployed along Nato’s eastern frontier. The deployment aims to allay worries of potential Russian aggression in eastern Europe.

    The arrival of the equipment and troops marks the start of a new phase of the US’s Operation Atlantic Resolve, which foresees the continuous presence of an American armoured brigade combat team in Europe on a nine-month rotational basis. . . .

    Other Nato members are also increasing their presence in eastern Europe, with Britain sending fighter jets to the Black Sea area, while a battalion of troops, tanks and light armour will deploy to Estonia in the spring, backed by French and Danish troops. Germany also plans to send troops and tanks to Lithuania.

    This event has received hardly any news coverage in the United States. I suspect that only around 1% of our population are aware that this is going on. What in the hell are we trying to do?

    We have never been invaded by Mexico. I do not count the cross border raids 100 years ago by Pancho Villa as an invasion. And, if we are honest, we essentially invaded/occupied Mexican territory and appropriated it as our won. Put yourself in the position of the Russian military and intelligence bureaucracies. The last time foreign troops started putting tanks and artillery on their western border was May of 1941. One month later they were invaded by the Nazis and more than 20 million Russians–let me repeat that number, at least 20 million–died in the ensuring war. The United States has never experienced that degree of devastation and loss and it is no exaggeration to state that the Russian people, not just Vladimir Putin, are very paranoid about foreign military activity on its borders.

    Then consider the following facts. Last year the United States carried out air strikes in 7 countries:

    How many countries did the Russians bomb? Only one. Syria. And they did so at the express invitation of the Government of Syria.

    My point is simple. If you were Russian and you were listening to the heated rhetoric coming out of Washington and London condemning all things Russian and vilifying Vladimir Putin as a Hitleresque character and then you saw this level of increased military activity by the west on your border. Would you feel the need to prepare for war?

    It is time for these children masquerading as Senators and Representatives to stop with the bellicose threats and the demonization of Russia and Putin. Instead, it is time to act like adults, understand the Russian concerns and take responsibility for our own threatening actions. If not, we run a real risk of sparking a war that could end with the use of nuclear weapons.

  18. I don’t know anyone else who came back other than me and I am far from sobering. I enjoy posting and generally agree with most here who disliked Obama , distrust the GOP, support woman, sup=port the working class, support repeal of Obamacare, support Israel and want what’s good for America. I think I ad some value to the board and would always welcome anyone back as we all have been through a lot the past eight (8) years.

  19. jb,

    I would like to see all the Big Pinkers back on the blog. The only one with rights to exclude anyone is Admin. I think the discussions here should include the perspectives of those who do not always agree.

    The only thing I have found that everyone seems to agree with about Trump is that he is going to either be a really great POTUS or a really awful one.

    I guess we will be alright as long as we all get umbrellas for any yellow rain.

  20. Lu4PUMA, the latest Trump “scandal” is the most amusing of all. The “scandal” has CNN breathless as well as the NeverTrump loons. The background on the “scandal” is based on NeverTrump opposition research given to… well, we’ll just post some links:

    https://www.buzzfeed.com/kenbensinger/these-reports-allege-trump-has-deep-ties-to-russia?utm_term=.dwQQNk7m9L#.gij6ZNKbgO

    These Reports Allege Trump Has Deep Ties To Russia

    A dossier, compiled by a person who has claimed to be a former British intelligence official, alleges Russia has compromising information on Trump. The allegations are unverified, and the report contains errors.

    A dossier making explosive — but unverified — allegations that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him has been circulating among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists for weeks.

    The dossier, which is a collection of memos written over a period of months, includes specific, unverified, and potentially unverifiable allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives, and graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians. CNN reported Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the report was given to President Barack Obama and Trump.

    Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

    The document was prepared for political opponents of Trump by a person who is understood to be a former British intelligence agent. It is not just unconfirmed: It includes some clear errors. The report misspells the name of one company, “Alpha Group,” throughout. It is Alfa Group. The report says the settlement of Barvikha, outside Moscow, is “reserved for the residences of the top leadership and their close associates.” It is not reserved for anyone, and it is also populated by the very wealthy.

    The documents have circulated for months and acquired a kind of legendary status among journalists, lawmakers, and intelligence officials who have seen them. Mother Jones writer David Corn referred to the documents in a late October column. Harry Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson tweeted Tuesday that the outgoing Senate Democratic leader had seen the documents before writing a public letter to FBI Director James Comey about Trump’s ties to Russia. And CNN reported Tuesday that Arizona Republican John McCain gave a “full copy” of the memos to Comey on Dec. 9, but that the FBI already had copies of many of the memos.

  21. This is the crap NeverTrump loon Rick Wilson has been pushing for months. CNN disgraced itself as did Buzzfeed by publishing this dreck. The good news is that it eats into coverage of Obama’s last gasp. The crap might also finish off CNN and Buzzfeed.

  22. I say give JBStonesfan a break…he made a BIG MISTAKE…and as I mentioned earlier I believe he was blinded by his emotions & “loyalty” or “love” for Hillary…

    …sooner or later JB you will probably begin to get that…the Hillary of 2016 was not the Hillary of 2008 (and some even question if she ever was who some of us thought she was)…she sold her soul to Soros, Saudia Arabia,Wall St, on and on…she laundered money for herself and Bill thru the State dept….and essentially her whole campaign was Donald Trump is bad…and his supporters are every kind of deplorable you can think of…she insulted half of the country and American citizens at some fancy fundraiser…

    …and the rest of the time, Hillary hung out with the rich and famous raising an obscene amount of money that she wasted…mainly on TV commercials that never stopped bashing Donald Trump…an endless loop of negative energy…

    …she had no message…no energy and she basically mailed it in doing the least amount of interaction with average, everyday people as possible…

    she really did expect a coronation…and her dream crashed and burned…thank goodness for the rest of us deplorables

    but enough, JB is in recovery…give him a chance…

    the only thing I ask JB is he open his eyes and see the Hillary he loved was not that Hillary in reality…

    She still has not said one word about Obama and Kerry and Israel…and she NEVER spoke up for all the women that were injured and raped by those poor immigrants that needed Europe & the USA so much…and now they are burning churches, killing people…on and on…

    …one day at a time…but JB…see the light…it will set you free…

  23. Now some anon on 4chan is taking credit for writing anti trump fan fiction and giving it to Rick Wilson who turned it over to the CIA. LOLOL

  24. …and one last thing JB…and that is not even mentioning her “secret server” and erasing thousands and thousands of incriminating emails and all her crucial people pleading the fifth…

    I mean JB…come on now…

    her behavior really was deplorable…and one thing Donald got right…anyone else would have been in jail…she was very lucky she knew so many people in high places to protect and shield her…

    crooked Hillary was actually descriptive…and a very big diappointment to me…

  25. The comprehensive pushback via Lifezette:

    http://www.lifezette.com/polizette/buzzfeed-runs-error-laden-unverifiable-trump-russia-claim/

    Fake News: BuzzFeed Runs ‘Unverifiable’ Trump-Russia Claims
    Left-leaning news outlet abandons all journalistic ethics in publishing explosive dossier

    The online news site BuzzFeed on Tuesday published a letter containing salacious allegations — which even the left-leaning outlet acknowledged are unverified — against President-Elect Donald Trump.

    The letter, purporting to come from a retired British intelligence agent, details Trump’s alleged relationship with Russia and contends that the Kremlin has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” Trump for at least five years.

    It alleges that Russians have been feeding Trump intelligence on his opponents, including Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, for years. It also details Trump’s alleged “personal obsessions and sexual perversion.”

    BuzzFeed acknowledges that it has not verified the accusations and even notes that the document contains a number of basic factual errors. Yet it published the full document.

    It is a shocking breakdown of journalistic ethics.

    Even Mother Jones declined to publish the full details and dossier.

    Even Donald Trump deserves journalistic fairness,” tweeted David Corn, Mother Jones’ Washington Bureau chief.

    Ben Smith, BuzzFeed’s editor-in-chief, defended the decision in a memo to staff.

    “Our presumption is to be transparent in our journalism and to share what we have with our readers,” he wrote in the email he subsequently shared on Twitter. “We have always erred on the side of publishing. In this case, the document was in wide circulation in the highest levels of American government and media.” [snip]

    Astonishingly, though, Smith cast doubt on whether the story his site published was true.

    As we noted in our story, there is a serious reason to doubt the allegations,” he wrote. “We have been chasing specific claims in this document for weeks, and will continue to.”

    Smith drew sharp rebukes from other reporters.

    Not how journalism works: Here’s a thing that might or might not be true, without supporting evidence; decide for yourself if it’s legit,” tweeted Brad Heath, an investigative reporter for USA Today. [snip]

    Julia Ioffe, a journalist who left Politico after suggesting in a tweet that Trump might be having sex with his own daughter, tweeted Tuesday that she had been approached with the story that BuzzFeed ran with but declined to publish. “Because it was impossible to verify. (I tried.)”

    New York Times reporter Adam Goldman heaped criticism on both BuzzFeed and CNN, which aired a version of the story Tuesday but did not publish all of the unverified details.

    “Sequence of events: @CNN finds way to talk about report and @buzzfeed uses that as reason to publish. Media critics are gonna be busy,” he tweeted.

    Ben Smith is a liar. A stupid liar. Ben Smith just gave President-Elect Donald J. Trump a blowtorch to burn down Big Media, especially CNN.

  26. A former sailor sentenced to one year in jail for mishandling classified information is pleading to President-elect Donald Trump to pardon him for his crime.
    Kristian Saucier of Arlington, Vermont, was sentenced to a year in prison for taking photos of classified areas inside a nuclear attack submarine despite his pleas that it was similar to how Hillary Clinton used a private server to send classified emails.

  27. White women not welcome at “women’s march” on Washington:

    Just your regular intersectionality at work keeping anyone from getting anything done.

  28. admin, the video in your essay with Tucker Carlson and the climate scientist starts talking whenever I refresh…

  29. Now BuzzFeed News is publishing the full document so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the US government.

    ROFL Yes, let us all, we common citizens, get right on that, verifying whether Trump had prostitutes urinating on each other on the bed that Obama slept in, videotaped by hidden Russian cameras. All 300 + million of us can verify for ourselves, since we know how to do that, have the capacity to do that, etc. That’s the ticket. And then we can all come to our own independent decision on whether the information is true or not. That’s one smart newspaper. Put out any unsubstantiated information, and say “let people decide”.

    At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations. But, in preparing this story, CNN has spoken to multiple high ranking intelligence, administration, congressional, and law enforcement officials as well as foreign officials. and others in the private sector with direct knowledge of the memos.

    Translation: we’ve confirmed that other very important people have heard of the memos. Oh wait, that just suggests that they exist, it has nothing to do with whether they’re legit…. ROFL

  30. Welcome back, JB. I would suggest not doing this on the other website though (ie, the opposite, saying all the stuff you like about Trump) because it won’t end well like here lol

    Jurnolisters turning on jurnolisters.

    Whats it all about Alfie?

    Its easier to say what it is NOT about.

    It is not about credibility.

    They gave up the ghost on that one long ago.

    And these atheists do not believe in redemption.

    Anyone who thinks David Corn gives a rats ass about credibility

    Must also believe in the tooth fairy.

    But these moral cowards do fear one thing.

    Impeachment—

    Which will make them out to be a hack

    And the loss of stature that would entail.

    Or, if you prefer, its the old story of Mike Gravel

    I met a democrat lobbyist who went to his home in Georgetown

    The morning after a sex scandal story broke out

    The lobbyist was surprised to see Mike’s wife Rita in tears

    He tried to console her

    He said what are you crying about, you know Mike would fuck a snake

    She said, knowing it is one thing.

    Reading about it on the front page of the Washington Post—that is different.

    Speaking of Snakes, Ben Smith must be worrying that he will be the goat on this one.

    Couldn’t happen to a nicer snake.

  32. I mean that only in the nicest way,

    Because I happen to know

    Lying Ben Smith is most definitely

    A remittance man from Politico

    A muckraker of the lowest kind

    A hazardous waste site

    And a publisher of scandal

    Without a scintilla of evidence

    Reads this blog

    So hi there Ben

    How they hanging

    Right about now?

    Notice how the environment has changed. The temperature has dropped. The barometer is falling. And the wind is building.

    During the imperious reign of the big media beloved messiah

    All these jurnolisters would have jumped at the opportunity to publish this hit piece.

    Now they are backing away, because there will be no one at 1600 Pennslyvania Avenue

    To welcome their lies and give them back rubs

    Come January 20, the reception for them in that venue will be decidedly different

    One simple question:

    If all this is true, why did they fail to disclose this damning account

    1. Before he became a candidate

    2. Before he became the nominee

    3. Before he won the election

    4. Before the electoral college met

    Why, why, why did they wait?

    Simple logic suggests the answer:

    There is no there there.

  35. I wonder whether that failed fiction writer and

    Ginness Book Incompetent Ben Rhodes was the real author

    The theme of this novella is simple and straightforward.

    The Russians were black mailing Trump. (bogus)

    The Russians stole the election. (bogus)

    The Russians installed Trump. (bogus)

    And he will be their man. (false)

    Wait. Stop the music.

    Didn’t Hollywood do a movie on this a generation ago

    The Manchurian candidate?

    Well in that case, Rhoades is a not only a failed writer

    Not only an incompetent and disastrous adiviser

    Rhoades is a plagiarist–with the power to do incalculable harm

    As witnessed by the thousands killed in the Middle East

    As a direct result of the policies he fed to numbnutz Obama

  36. At this point, CNN is not reporting on details of the memos, as it has not independently corroborated the specific allegations.

    Let parse this one out. Assume that you are the corporate counsel for CNN, and this piece of dog shit, Jeff Zucker calls you into his office.

    https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://cdn.breitbart.com/mediaserver/Breitbart/Big-Journalism/2013/CNN/jeff-zucker-afp.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.breitbart.com/big-journalism/2014/02/24/cnn-chief-jeff-zuckers-top-5-

    He tells you he feels threatened by Trump and wants to use the power of his media position to destroy him. He notes in passing that he was one of the 17 media executives who conspired to destroy Trump in the primaries, only to be outwitted by the MAGA Man. And he tells you we have the smoking gun to do what he wanted to do all along namely this story. And all I want to know from you is can I use this story to destroy him legally?

    Your first question will be what?

    Do you believe it is true?

    He says I don’t care if it is true, I want to destroy him.

    Your second question wil be what?

    Can you prove that it is true?

    He says we lied about the women who claimed he assaulted them, and we were not sued.

    Your third question will be do you want my legal advice, or do you want me to act like Eric Holder and tell you anything you want to here.

    Because if it is the latter, I am not your man. You need to talk to Holder.

    He says, just give me your legal analysis, and I will decide what risks I am willing to assume to take down Trump and plunge the country into chaos.

    My legal analysis is simple and straightforward.

    You cannot take the same position that Ben Smith has, put out a lie and then say its up to the public to figure out whether its a lie or not.

    The public is not in a position to make that evaluation.

    And that statement–let the public decide is no defense to libel or slander.

    Trump is a public figure, therefore he must meet a higher standard of proof than private citizens in the context of a slander suit.

    He must prove that the charges are not only false but manifest a wreckless disregard for the truth.

    But that is a deceptive standard, because he is will not be required to prove a negative.

    He will sue CNN for a billion dollars and your shareholders may not like that.

    And he will sue you personally, so you can look forward to hundreds of hours in depositions.

    You will have to get your own lawyer, because your interests and those of CNN may differ at a certain point.

    Also, you will wnat to look for gaps in your directors and officers liability policy.

    And when you are asked to produce evidence, and witnesses to attest to this story what will you do?

    When his attorney, the fiercest cross examiner in the country, gets you on the stand, what will you say?

    Who will you throw to the wolves.

    But it won’t get that far, because when your moneymen at AOL hear the opening statement

    They will will bring in the enough money to fill Fort Knox to make your little thing go away.

    So, this is a little like that memorable line from Dirty Harry:

    How lucky do you feel–punk!

    http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/01/omg-fake-news-cia-fell-incredible-golden-showerfable-trump/
    ———
    Recall how the CIA gave CNN the story on Russian hacking BEFORE they gave it to Congress.

    The golden showers charade was given by the CIA to CNN before it was given to responsible government officials.

    When Dan Coates sends Brennan back to Saudi Arabia (who controls him) or to Davey Jones Locker (where he really belongs)

    There will be a ton of clean-up work to be done.

    No wonder Brennan is burning all incriminating evidence.

    No wonder Assange is offering a $25, 000 reward to anyone willing to preserve and present that evidence to wikileaks.

    Confucius was right: we are condemned to live in interesting times.

    This is the crap NeverTrump loon Rick Wilson has been pushing for months.

    Which of course means it goes straight to the Bushes since Wilson doesn’t fart without their permission and direction. And yes the Bushes are that angry, stupid, and hobbled by incompetence to do it. And the CIA ties from decades ago are thick so of course the creep Wilson would send it to old man Bush’s favorite spook outfit.

    And if they are one rung above “special needs” they should consider that they may have been played by Trump’s own counter-intel goofing on a public “goof” internet board. Baited and hooked.

  39. How did Trump and Assoc get CNN and “Buzzfeed” to go full gonzo the night before Tillerson’s hearing to burn McCain and the NeverTrumpers as well as Obama’s idiot CIA/FBI? They are all exposed as loons right before these dumb asses were going to “confront” Tillerson on doing oil deals in a country with the largest land mass in the world. Who pushed the always useful clowns to pull the trigger at this particular moment? And Bond, James Bond, wrote the misspelled mess. What gormless suckers.

  40. TV news this AM glows about Obama altho planet has not yet healed,
    and Hillary who has a BIG SURPRISE THIS MORNING. Get a bag.

    Hillary Clinton to open exhibition hall bearing her name at the State Department

    Hillary Clinton returns to D.C. for a third time since her election loss to speak at an event at the State Department
    Clinton and other secretaries will be on hand for the opening of the U.S. Diplomacy Center Pavilion, new museum space at the Foggy Bottom compound
    One of the four exhibition halls will bear Clinton’s name as she revived the project during her tenure as secretary of state

    “…The project stalled during the eight years that Republican President George W. Bush was in the White House.
    Now just Clinton’s hall and the Kissinger portion of the building, the latter of which contains a 14-foot section of the Berlin Wall, are completed.
    Another $20 million will need to be raised to complete the Kerry and Baker sections of the museum….”

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4103090/Hillary-Clinton-open-exhibition-bearing-State-Department.html

    And scorched earth for DJT. WORST kind of “journalism” on display.

  41. Obama’s buddies at ISIS have murdered Christians, while Obama, a closet Muslim sat idly by.

    Maybe we should give them a couple dochebags who deserve it—David Brock, and now Rick Wilson.

    Rick Wilson who calls Trump supporters Nazis, and accuses Coulter of getting anal sex from Trump.

    Oh, that Rich Wison?

    Yes, indeed that Rick Wilson!

    But this is America (a favorite liberal line whenever they feel the urge to steal)

    And in America we have freedom of speech (which for the liberal applies to speech we hate, not to speech critical of Obama et al.)

    You have no right to ban Brock and Wilson, much less to turn them over to ISIS.

    Really? Then you really are a dumb son of a bitch.

    You have no clue what low lifes like Brock and Wilson are doing to this country.

    But just because you are ignorant does not mean everyone else is just because you manage to shout louder.

    In her latest book, The Smear, Sharyl Attkisson makes crystal clear that is what is obscure to you because you are so obtuse.

    The Smear:

    Ever wonder how politics turned into a take-no-prisoners blood sport? The New York Times bestselling author of Stonewalled pulls back the curtain on the shady world of opposition research and reveals the dirty tricks those in power use to influence your opinions.

    Behind most major political stories in the modern era, there is an agenda; an effort by opposition researchers, spin doctors, and outside interests to destroy an idea or a person. The tactic they use is the Smear. Every day, Americans are influenced by the Smear without knowing it. Paid forces cleverly shape virtually every image you cross. Maybe you read that Donald Trump is a racist misogynist, or saw someone on the news mocking the Bernie Sanders campaign. The trick of the Smear is that it is often based on some shred of truth, but these media-driven “hit pieces” are designed to obscure the truth. Success hinges on the Smear artist’s ability to remain invisible; to make it seem as if their work is neither calculated nor scripted. It must appear to be precisely what it is not.

    Veteran journalist Sharyl Attkisson has witnessed this practice firsthand. After years of being pitched hit jobs and puff pieces, she’s an expert at detecting Smear campaigns. Now, the hard-hitting investigative reporter shares her inside knowledge, revealing how the Smear takes shape and who its perpetrators are—including Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and, most influential of all, “right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin” (National Review) political operative David Brock and his Media Matters for America empire.
    Attkisson exposes the diabolical tactics of Smear artists, and their outrageous access to the biggest names in political media—operatives who are corrupting the political process, and discouraging widespread citizen involvement in our democracy.

  42. Shocker! Trump declares at his press conference he is a “germaphobe”.

    The President-Elect is doing marvelously well with his attacks on Big Media.

    This isn’t really a press conference because those are usually boring and uninformative. President-Elect Trump is informative and entertaining and very open. If this keeps up even people who hate “politics” will be extraordinarily engaged as citizens in the political life of the country.

  43. From Morning Joe, Tom Brokaw said this:

    BROKAW: All right. Well, this has been around for a while. I first heard about it four months ago.

    PRIEBUS: Right.

    BROKAW: And it had a fair amount of detail and we’ve been chasing it and a lot of other news agencies have been as well. Never been able to close the book on it.

    SCARBOROUGH: Right.

    BROKAW: We did take it, Richard Engel and I have been working on it. We did take it at one point to a very senior American Intel official. He said I have no idea that there’s something like this going on. It’s not even been reportable because we don’t have the verification

    SCARBOROUGH: Right.

    BROKAW: –of the various charges that are there. So it’s been around. And a number of organizations have been looking at it for some time. I was surprised when it showed up in this form. It got to the Intel Agencies and they included it in a report to the president without any kind of conclusion about the veracity of it. So I think from the Trump organization point of view that they’ve got a legitimate claim here.

  44. Lawyer Sheri Dillon is now explaining Trump’s business arrangements to avoid potential conflicts of interest. Big Media will love this, we doubt few others will care much now. The big story is the Buzzfeed/CNN smear of Trump so the goal post shifting to what was once the point of the presser won’t help Big Media deflect from their scandalous behavior.

  45. President-Elect Donald J. Trump now slashing at ObamaCare. Trump says he could sit back and wait and watch as ObamaCare explodes this year. But Trump says he will repeal and replace with a plan soon after his HHS secretary is appointed. “ObamaCare is the Democrats’ problem.”

  46. Best “news conference” ever! Trump just called a shouting CNN reporter “fake news” and told him to shut up. Afterwards Trump called on a reporter who announced he was from the BBC. Trump derisively said “another beauty” to mock BBC. This is too much fun.

  47. Obama will hate Jews even more now, if it’s possible for Obama to hate Jews more than he already does:

    http://nypost.com/2017/01/10/obama-may-get-rejected-from-golf-club-over-israel-policies/

    President Obama’s clashes with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may cost him a membership at an exclusive golf club, sources said.

    Obama is looking to join the elite Woodmont Country Club in Maryland once he becomes a private citizen.

    But members of the mostly Jewish club are at each other’s throats over whether to accept the golf-loving president, with many saying he deserves to be snubbed for not blocking an anti-Israel vote at the United Nations, according to the sources. [snip]

    Obama’s complimentary membership in the club — which charges regular members an $80,000 initiation fee — would have begun after he leaves the White House on Jan. 20, Inauguration Day.

    The Obamas will continue to live in Washington, DC — and the Rockville club would offer a relaxing respite just miles from his new home. It would also offer a chance for Obama to hit the links on “two premiere golf courses . . . known across the country for their spectacular championship play and . . . rave reviews by golfers throughout the years,” according to the club’s Web site.

    “It’s a very exclusive, high-end club,” a source said.

    In addition to the steep initiation fee, members must cough up $9,673 in annual dues.

    “Originally, this was supposed to be a back-door thing to get this done and give him the membership — free of charge — and circumvent the rules,” said a source.

    “But now, with the UN thing, they are not in position or likely to do it,” he added, saying the club is currently facing threats of potential lawsuits and litigation for breaching the bylaws to let Obama join.

    Democrats and Republicans in the club both oppose waiving normal procedures for the soon-to-be ex-president, a source said.

    While the club “probably skews more Republican than the Jewish community as a whole,” there are many prominent Democratic members, a number of whom supported Obama’s campaigns. But they might not support him now.

    Can you imagine how angry I would be if I had paid $80K to have to look at this guy who has done more to damage Israel than any president in American history?” an official in a Washington Jewish organization fumed to The Post.

    “After the UN vote and attack on Israel, I think it probably hurts the club. If there is a club that excludes Jews, he would probably be more comfortable around those folks.”

  48. I was trying to figure out what this jackal Acosta is all about. He stands like a redwood tree tall in the forest, all 5 foot seven of him, a snivelling punk he has a degree in “mass commmunications” from the highly respected Goebbels School of Journalism much preferred by CNN because it puts the Columbia school of journalism to shame for its ability to teach the black art of propaganda. And speaking of shame, he has none, because he been a confirmed brown noser for Obama from day 1. As to his marital status the blog I read says he is married, and goes on to say he is divorced “not yet”. I gather they are fighting over alimony. Lets hope she has a good attorney capable of dragging this jackal through the mud. If we are star crossed, then he and his light of love land in the same courtroom as Soros and his mistress. Both of them have interesting stories to tell, I am sure.

  49. Obama is looking to join the elite Woodmont Country Club in Maryland once he becomes a private citizen.

    Correction:

    Obama is looking to join the elite Woodmont Country Club in Maryland once he becomes a NATURALIZED citizen.

  50. “Can you imagine how angry I would be if I had paid $80K to have to look at this guy who has done more to damage Israel than any president in American history?” an official in a Washington Jewish organization fumed to The Post.

    “After the UN vote and attack on Israel, I think it probably hurts the club. If there is a club that excludes Jews, he would probably be more comfortable around those folks.”

    ———
    If there is a Muslims only golf club, which schleps in ISIS members, then the big media beloved messiah would be most comfortable there.

    In furtherance of that laudable objective, Obama has issued an executive order to the Professional Golfers Association, directing them to divert the monies currently applied to the promotion youth golf to a newly established department charged with training Arab terrorist how to play golf, on the theory that it is better to have them bomb on the golf course than in churches and synagogues. Better to have them wacking at a golf ball, than wacking off Christian heads. And better for Obama to have someone who is willing to play golf with him once he leaves office.

    Ah yes, the wisdom of the big media beloved messiah, which passeth all understanding.

  51. Trump MUST make an example of CNN.

    He must relegate them to the status of a non-person, in other words a fake news organization.

    They have no standing to ask him any questions.

    They are in exile, from now on.

    If he ever lets them up off the mat, for any reason, it will send a message to NBC and the others that they can get away with this.

    CNN must therefore be banned in perpetuity.

  52. The next move will be up to AOL.

    On the odds, they will oust Zucker.

    But that will not cure the problem.

    The problem in that organization is cultural.

    And it reflected in their hiring practices over the past several years.

    Therefore, if they get a new CEO the corruption will continue.

    The only answer is a program of de Nazification.

    And that would mean the loss of what they call “talent”.

    They must be banned in perpetuity.

    The example would not be lost on the other company executives.

  53. Larry Johnson’s take on this ineptly executed coup attempt:

    http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/79535/failed-cia-coup/?doing_wp_cron=1484171255.9349191188812255859375

    When it comes to meddling in national elections, the CIA puts the Russians to shame.

    The continuing, full scale assault on Donald Trump and his reputation by our so-called Intelligence Community (with the CIA apparently leading the charge) is disgusting, despicable and dangerous. It also exposes John McCain as a low life snake doing all he can to stir the pot and discredit Donald Trump. Why?

    The answer is very simple–Donald Trump is promising a new foreign policy that will shift NATO’s focus from a confrontation with Russia to the destruction of radical Islam and will end the covert program to arm, equip and train radical Islamists in Syria and leave Bashar Al Assad in charge. Trump is no longer committed to a policy of “building democracies” overseas, which for the neocon segment of the US foreign policy community, is a disaster.

    I do not know how many of you have ever watched the movie, The Good Shepherd, which tells a Hollywood version of former CIA officer James Jesus Angleton. One key part of the movie shows CIA officers painstakingly analyzing film, frame-by-frame, to determine where it was made and who is in it. Here’s a news flash–that CIA does not exist. If the CIA was acting as a truly professional intelligence organization, its leaders would have done a genuine analysis of that fraudulent doc

    CNN and some others in the media went nuts last night over a leak from someone in the intel community pushing a fake news story that Russia has a bunch of dirt on Trump and is blackmailing him:

    Classified documents presented last week to President Obama and President-elect Trump included allegations that Russian operatives claim to have compromising personal and financial information about Mr. Trump, multiple US officials with direct knowledge of the briefings tell CNN.

    The allegations were presented in a two-page synopsis that was appended to a report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. The allegations came, in part, from memos compiled by a former British intelligence operative, whose past work US intelligence officials consider credible. The FBI is investigating the credibility and accuracy of these allegations, which are based primarily on information from Russian sources, but has not confirmed many essential details in the memos about Mr. Trump. . . .

    Sources tell CNN that these same allegations about communications between the Trump campaign and the Russians, mentioned in classified briefings for congressional leaders last year, prompted then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid to send a letter to FBI Director Comey in October, in which he wrote, “It has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States.”. . .
    Some of the memos were circulating as far back as last summer. What has changed since then is that US intelligence agencies have now checked out the former British intelligence operative and his vast network throughout Europe and find him and his sources to be credible enough to include some of the information in the presentations to the President and President-elect a few days ago. . . .

    CNN has also learned that on December 9, Senator John McCain gave a full copy of the memos — dated from June through December, 2016 — to FBI Director James Comey. McCain became aware of the memos from a former British diplomat who had been posted in Moscow. But the FBI had already been given a set of the memos compiled up to August 2016, when the former MI6 agent presented them to an FBI official in Rome, according to national security officials. . . .

    The raw memos on which the synopsis is based were prepared by the former MI6 agent, who was posted in Russia in the 1990s and now runs a private intelligence gathering firm. His investigations related to Mr. Trump were initially funded by groups and donors supporting Republican opponents of Mr. Trump during the GOP primaries, multiple sources confirmed to CNN. Those sources also said that once Mr. Trump became the nominee, further investigation was funded by groups and donors supporting Hillary Clinton.

    I will leave it to others to do the complete takedown of this smear. Glenn Greenwald has an excellent piece. He rights in part:

    IN JANUARY, 1961, Dwight Eisenhower delivered his Farewell Address after serving two terms as U.S. President; the five-star General chose to warn Americans of this specific threat to democracy: “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.” That warning was issued prior to the decade-long escalation of the Vietnam War, three more decades of Cold War mania, and the post-9/11 era, all of which radically expanded that unelected faction’s power even further.

    This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already-widely-disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”

    Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing – eager – to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.

    As many of you know I have written critically about Donald Trump in the past. But this is not about Donald Trump’s reputation, this is a full fledged assault by the some leaders of our intelligence organizations on the legitimately elected man who will become the President of the United States. The CIA may need to be dismantled. This is that serious. No U.S. intelligence organization has any right, legal or otherwise, to interfere in domestic politics. That is a bright red line that must not be crossed.

    Finally, it is sad to see the mess that CNN has become. My very first TV appearance after leaving government was on CNN. I discussed the capture of Carlos the Jackal (this was 23 years ago). CNN is now a network that is discredited and in free fall. It is a real tragedy.

  54. CNN’s @Acosta reports Trump spokesman @seanspicer told him he’ll be kicked out of future press confs if he presses hard for ques again— Jim Sciutto (@jimsciutto) January 11, 2017
    ——
    this acosta is a lying son of a bitch.

    do you really believe that spicer told him you will be kicked out of a press conference if you “press hard for a question”

    if spicer told that liar anything, he told him you will be removed if you attempt to take over a press conference and brow beat the president

    if you that, then you will get what you deserve which is the same treatment the little monkey from Univision got when he did the same thing you did.

    the purpose of a press conference is to inform the public, not be be a bully pulpit for obnoxious reporters pressing a toxic lie filled agenda.

  55. The CIA may need to be dismantled. This is that serious. No U.S. intelligence organization has any right, legal or otherwise, to interfere in domestic politics. That is a bright red line that must not be crossed.
    ——–
    I have been saying this here for a long time. A long time. It is the top third that must go. What Larry does not realize is they have been interfering in domestic politics ever since the Kennedy assassination, they are an extension of the military industrial complex, and Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Kaine all worked for them at one point in their career. And because McCain is part of the military industrial complex himself, it is only natural that he would be working with them to bring down Trump. I remember McCain’s father, he was in charge of the sixth fleet in the Mediterranean, he would meet with our then superintendent Jim Calvert, a highly decorated world war II sub-mariner. And, at or near that time, he was making noises about his son, that he would not blame him if he said things under torture, etc. And then, during the 2008 campaign, Axelrod was rumored to have a North Viet Namese scoundrel who was a jailer at the Hanoi Hilton while McCain was partaking of its many amenities. On the campaign trail, John told fabulous stories about the agonies he endured, and made himself of to be a hero. But when the possibility that this jailer might be called as a rebuttal witness, he shut the fuck up. Simply put, he is not the hero he makes himself out to be, and Trump’s statement that he prefers heroes that do not get capture, is mild fare compared to what could have, and arguably should have been said about him.

    Best “news conference” ever! Trump just called a shouting CNN reporter “fake news” and told him to shut up. Afterwards Trump called on a reporter who announced he was from the BBC. Trump derisively said “another beauty” to mock BBC. This is too much fun.

    oh my goodness…the most memorable thing of many memorable today…

    CNN is fake news…now that’s the truth…

    …this is too much fun…

  57. Tony Stark, what makes you think the gunman in Spain has anything to do with ISIS? Obama will soon say the motives of the shooter screaming allahu akbar is a very complicated matter which merits a great deal of study to try to determine but we should not jump to conclusions about why he did what he did because it could be workplace violence or upset nerves.

    Wobbei, “Goebbels School of Journalism” had us laughing the day through.

  58. Presumably there are Muslim owned golf clubs where h surely be welcomed. The Saudi desert is a great sand trap. On the other hand, many of the liberal Jews that enabled Obama to dismantle the long standing relationship between Israel and America will still prefer him and the democratic party over Israel.

  59. ISIS arrives in Spain. My only question is what took them so long, given lax Spanish security?

    Hi JB

    Let me, if I may, ask an indelicate question:

    After observing what Obama hath wrought vis-a vis-Israel

    Effectively stripping them of the quid pro quo

    For a settlement of the Palestinian question

    Based on a land for peace principle

    Have the Obama lovers in your family,

    Or an subset thereof

    Come around to your view of him

    Or have they learned nothing and forgotten nothing

    As Talleyrand said of the Bourbon Dynasty?

  61. President Obama’s clashes with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may cost him a membership at an exclusive golf club, sources said.

    lol I hope they keep him OUT! I’m a little surprised though – it sure seems like most American Jews don’t care much about Israel…

  62. A minor aside, if you do not mind.

    This town, Seattle, is a young city by east coast standards.

    Then again, the United States is a young country by European or British standards.

    To which I say, lay down thy flattering unction.

    You may have had Charlemagne, Marlborough, Churchill and other men of action.

    But you have never had a big media beloved Messiah Obama who writes his own legacy.

    My town was founded in 1851, by the Denny party

    They were welcomed by Chief Seattle and they named their little town in his honor

    But other tribes were less hospitable, and by 1856 and Indian war broke out.

    The settlers took refuge in a block house constructed by marines from the USS Decatur

    Which was located on 1st and Cherry street, and was called Fort Decatur

    A baby was born in that block house during that turblent time

    They named her Madge Decatur Denny–after the time and place she was born

    There is a striking picture of her at the Pioneer Museum as a young woman

    Dressed in the glorious style of the belle epoch which was the vogue of that era

    The historical record of her life is sparse

    Save to say she was full of life and utterly devoted to her mother

    She never married, and I can only assume there was a shortage of eligible bachelors

    She died tragically at the age of 32 from pneumonia in 1889

    Six months before the Klondike Gold Rush

    Ten years before the Great Seattle Fire

    The two events that paved the way for the next chapter in our history

    But she never lived to see her city become a metropolis

    Hers was the second death from that cause in their family that year

    A sad example of what might have been had she lived

    Thank god we live in the time we do with the sulfa drugs, etc.

  63. What struck me especially was her final words to her mother.

    I am worried about what will happen to you after I am gone.

  64. Last night the “concern” in many Dim websites was that Donald Trump was sure to be impeached or not inaugurated (due to the Ben Smith idiocy) and that they would have to deal with “President Pence”. The Dims could not make up their minds if President Trump would be better than President Pence. By this afternoon the pissagate story fell apart as did the Dim dreams.

    Then today most of the Dim sites declared the Trump press conference an absolute horror proving Trump a monster. David Graham at The Atlantic is an example of that hysteria.

    Over at New York Magazine, the favorite Dim reporter on Big Media – Gabriel Sherman, proved Big Media has not learned a thing about Trump. The obvious continues to elude Big Media because of their hatred of Trump. “Shambolic campaign?” Um, he won didn’t he? At least Sherman acknowledges that Trump won bigly, yugely:

    At His First News Conference As President-elect, Trump Owns the Press

    This morning, Donald Trump hosted his much-delayed, long-awaited first news conference as president-elect. Inside the Trump Tower atrium, the atmosphere was as charged as at a highly anticipated prize fight. The last time Trump fielded questions from the press corps was last summer. For weeks, the media had been preparing to challenge him on any number of controversies: his conflicts of interest, polarizing cabinet appointments, decision to appoint his son-in-law as a senior adviser, and, most alarmingly, Vladimir Putin’s apparent efforts to manipulate the election.

    Trump being Trump, he didn’t show any interest in directly answering questions. He opened with a rambling monologue that included the pronouncement: “I will be the greatest jobs producer that God ever created.” When asked by a reporter if Russia aided his win, Trump said, “Well, if Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset.” Questioned whether the American people wanted him to finally release his tax returns, he replied, “No, I don’t think they care at all.” Challenged on the potential conflicts of interest for his cabinet appointees, Trump explained that Rex Tillerson and Jeff Sessions were “brilliant.”

    Judged on a policy basis, it was a disaster. Trump came across as just as unprepared and unfocused as he did during his shambolic campaign. He let his lawyer speak for nearly a quarter of the allotted time to explain why he wouldn’t be putting his company into a blind trust and instead would be turning it over to his sons Don Jr. and Eric. For visual effect, aides stacked manila folders on a table next to the lectern. Trump said they were filled with legal papers.

    But observed as spectacle, Trump came away with a resounding victory. That’s because Trump won even before he stepped before the microphone, by making the media the story. Last night, BuzzFeed published a salacious 35-page oppo-research dossier on Trump that alleged Russia possessed sexual and financial dirt on Trump that could be used to blackmail him. BuzzFeed justified reporting the unverified oppo-research document — which had been compiled during the presidential campaign by a political operative working for Trump’s Republican rivals — by stating that intelligence agencies had briefed Trump on a summary of the findings last week. But BuzzFeed’s article boomeranged back on the website as journalists were quick to denounce its decision to publish unconfirmed claims and errors. (CNN broke news of the intelligence briefing, but did not print the sensational details.)

    Trump exploited this wedge. From the outset, he worked to isolate BuzzFeed and CNN. “I want to thank a lot of the news organizations for some of whom have not treated me very well over the years — a couple in particular — and they came out so strongly against that fake news and the fact that it was written about by primarily one group and one television station,” he said. Trump also deflected attention from the urgent questions at hand by taking aim at the intelligence agencies, which he accused — without proof — of the leak. “It was disgraceful that the intelligence agencies allowed any information that turned out to be so false and fake out … [T]hat’s something that Nazi Germany would have done, and did do.”

    For the most part, Trump remained calm and jocular (except when he refused to call on CNN reporter Jim Acosta, yelling “You are fake news!”). He invited reporters to the White House the week after his inauguration. He left the bad-cop routine to his press secretary, Sean Spicer, who called BuzzFeed “a left-wing blog” and said the decision to publish was “outrageous and highly irresponsible.”

    The cumulative result is that Trump turned what should have been a serious examination of his incoming administration into a debate over journalistic practices and Michael Cohen’s travel itinerary. BuzzFeed deserves some of the blame for this. Journalists receive oppo research frequently during political campaigns, but publish only what they can verify. By amending this standard for Trump, BuzzFeed handed him an opening to play the victim. Trump thrives in a world where facts are fungible. As the journalist Masha Gessen, who’s covered Putin’s Russia for years, tweeted: “We are now fully immersed in the anonymous, the unverified, and the unverifiable. And he hasn’t even taken office. Trumpism sure is fast.”

    The matter of whether Trump campaign officials coordinated with the Kremlin needs to be investigated, and answered definitively. Trump’s propensity to traffic in rumor, gossip, and innuendo makes it ever more important that the news organizations don’t.

    Their real complaint is that Trump answered all the questions they planned for weeks quickly and with finality. His lawyer squashed the phony conflict of interest line of questioning. Big Media is also upset because Trump did not give any of them favorite status. They had to fight for recognition (boy we really loved that after all the Bush/Obama press conferences where everything was choreographed and orchestrated beforehand) and they had to deal with unruly bloggers in their midst too.

    We can’t wait for the next press conference.

    Democrats and Never-Trumpers are playing out the stages of grief including mania and delusion. The breadwinner, protector/enforcer, wise counsel, clan leader, decision maker has died, been displaced, or removed and their brains cannot process what is next. They can either line up with the new leadership or be exiled. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. They are stuck in various phases. The bargaining phase is going to be especially difficult for them because they don’t know how to bargain and that phase is ending anyway. Examples are everywhere of how they are trying to cope including sad stories of Dem flunkies who can’t get new “positions” worthy of their great skills and intelligence or spy masters like Clapper calling Trump to apologize to prevent prosecution for ordering the leaking of classified material or enviros threatening lawsuits to stop The Wall. The market for lefty agit-prop and group think, and the people who pay them for it from harvested taxpayer money, are drying up and they desperately don’t want to go back to Bumfu@k FL or OH and sell real estate instead of sit on their asses gossiping and spinning crap as journalism or “intelligence” or laws. Their world is crumbling and they don’t know who is going to give them money or what the pecking order is going to be. Buzzfeed, CNN as humiliating examples terrify them. Some of the tail end of the graft and walking around money chain blogger recipient/payees are already dispersing because the higher ups get paid first and cash flow is drying up. Their “family” is dying because the expected next alpha ape got knocked off in an survival of the fittest election fight. This is played out on small scales daily all over the world. This one is public, huge, and televised or YouTube’ed and involves a gigantic crime family roughly identified the globalists losing their shit. Sad! NOT. LOL.

  66. “Democrats and Republicans in the club both oppose waiving normal procedures for the soon-to-be ex-president, a source said.”

    Obama’s grand retirement is not going to turn out the way he planned it. This 80 grand club, the local “premier” club where I live is 250 grand in podunkville so it can’t be that great, in DC of all the groveling places for an ex-president, is a preview for his exile. The Dems don’t want to look at him. He is radioactive. Announcing that he is going to snipe and hector from the sidelines forever is not what a ruined party needs or wants. The members know his reputation as an entitled asshole and they don’t want or have to put up with him. AND they won’t get any brownie points for doing so. Obama’s humiliation is nearing completion as this social and political cut is being made public and he isn’t even out of office yet.

    Yes, the legacy here is, how shall I put it . . . ambiguous . . .

    Much depends on his audience

    To himself he is the sun, the moon and the stars–a greater than Lincoln

    To big media, all of them, he is a deity who visits earth once every two thousand years

    To big banks and corporations he is their organ grinders monkey

    To RINOS he is a willing partner in crime, as they cry their way to the bank

    To DINOS his is the way (off the cliff)

    To Blacks he is the great white hope

    To patriots he is a traitor

    To world leaders he is a joke

    To Israel he is persona non grata

    To Putin he is a causus belli

    To China he his the perfect rube

    To Hollywood elites he is the quintessential hero, and love interest (especially for deNiro)

    To students of history he is a Guiness Book incompetent

    To terrorists he is a friend who shares their belief that America is The Great Satan

    To bureaucrats (terrorists of a different kind) he is a friend.

    And to psychiatrists he is a stone cold sociopath

  68. FOX is fortunate to be rid of Meeeeeeeeee again Kelly

    Getting her to leaved volutarily was something of a coup

    All it took was rejecting her ridiculous salary demand

    Why is this a coup?

    Because if he stayed, she was certain to sue them

    On some trumped up charge of sex discrimination

    Like having a smaller vanity mirror in her dressing roo, than O’Reilly

    Or that Shepard Smith, a homosexual, made a pass at her

    Or that someone else got a plum assignement

    When one is as demented as she is, there she can grieve just about anything

    The larger question is what good she will do for NBC

    As the hope to avoid a fate like the one CNN has in store

    It is like having a rookie on the bench who you paid too much money for

    I wonder whether she would stand for the national anthem

    Or, possibly accusing someone in the news room of rape

    What good is Kelly to them, in the age of Trump. She has made herself radio active.

  69. Kelly is a conniver.

    It will take her six months to realize that this move was a mistake.

    After 6 months she will demand a prime time spot, and get it because they do not want to be sued.

    But they will find that she does not command the audience she once had at FOX.

    Like other bitter clinging dead ender anti Trumpers, the public will tire of listening to her.

    This 80 grand club, the local “premier” club where I live is 250 grand in podunkville so it can’t be that great,
    ______________________________

    That’s what I was thinking. Low end equity hunting clubs down in the rural south go for that.

  71. As previously indicated, many many times, I am a huge fan of Glenn Greenwald, an HONEST man of the left. The insight he provides here, echoes what I have been saying, surely not because I said it, but because it is manifestly true, and if you view foreign affairs (endless war) from this point of view, the chaos we see becomes, if not rational, at least fathomable. Its why I say Brennan is as much the traitor as Obama is the sociopath. And, lest we forget, these are the same people who deploy mind control strategies against the domestic population first noted by the Church commission way back when. Like MK Ultra. Those strategies originated in Nazi Germany, and came here under CIA operation paperclip. No, this is not some rock video, this is reality. Sadly. And the controlling factor is the deep state, as Greenwald among others identifies them here:
    ———
    Left-of-center journalist Glenn Greenwald at The Intercept calls the faction that is out to destroy Trump “the deep state,” which is defined as “the permanent government embedded within the bureaucracy and military that wields power no matter who is nominally the president.”

    Greenwald says the American Deep State has gone to war with Trump:

    This is the faction that is now engaged in open warfare against the duly elected and already widely disliked president-elect, Donald Trump. They are using classic Cold War dirty tactics and the defining ingredients of what has until recently been denounced as “Fake News.”

    Their most valuable instrument is the U.S. media, much of which reflexively reveres, serves, believes, and sides with hidden intelligence officials. And Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.

    The serious dangers posed by a Trump presidency are numerous and manifest…

    But cheering for the CIA and its shadowy allies to unilaterally subvert the U.S. election and impose its own policy dictates on the elected president is both warped and self-destructive. Empowering the very entities that have produced the most shameful atrocities and systemic deceit over the last six decades is desperation of the worst kind. Demanding that evidence-free, anonymous assertions be instantly venerated as Truth — despite emanating from the very precincts designed to propagandize and lie — is an assault on journalism, democracy, and basic human rationality. And casually branding domestic adversaries who refuse to go along as traitors and disloyal foreign operatives is morally bankrupt and certain to backfire on those doing it.

  72. came here under CIA operation paperclip.
    ——
    Correction: the CIA was established by the National Security Act of 1947. Prior to that time, it was called The Office of Strategic Services, and was created during World War II. Looking back on his presidency Truman, one of my favorite presidents remarked that creating the CIA was his biggest mistakes. Subsequent history, up to an including now, especially now, has confirmed the accuracy of his belated assessment. The problem is so entrenched, and so jeopardizes the life and future of this country, that this may be one of those rare occasions where it is necessary to throw the baby out with the bath water, in order to save the republic.

  73. How do you get the public to wise up?

    How do you get them to believe what is really true about their government, their party, their candidate

    And then act upon it

    Critical thinking would be best

    But the base line varies by individual

    And our academies are too corrupt and politicized to teach it

    Try thinking about it in the context of a murder trial

    Suppose you represent the accused, he claims self defense, and no plea bargain is proffered

    You have an uphill battle

    The jury does not want to return a murderer into their community

    They fear him, and they fear what people will say about them if they set him free

    Therefore, you have to change their thinking–radically

    You need to transport them from the jury room to the street where the murder took place

    You need to feel the fear your client felt which caused him to behave in the manner he did

    You need to make them believe that they would have acted the same way if they were in that situation

    And you need to tell them their role is to do justice

    Then, you tie all of this together in your closing statement and jury instructions

    In politics, you need to change peoples minds too

    Politicial speeches and ads will take you only so far

    I think more movies on the history of this country, and the sacrifices of prior generatiions are a useful starting point

    And then the deep state must be exposed for all to see.

  74. No Tucker. This jamoke does not have low standards as a journalist. He has no standards as a journalist. Prosecutors face this situation all the time. Their investigators collect all kinds of information from various sources about a target. Most of this information is unreliable because it comes from the gutter, it cannot be substantiated, sometimes as in this case it is bought and paid for, sometimes it is simple vendetta, and UNLESS it can be corroborated, it never ever sees the light of day. What CNN has done is dumped this steaming heap of garbage into the public laps and told them you sort it out. And that is what this douchebag from Fortune Magazine, who quotes the WSJ which managed by avowed Trump hater Brett Stephens like it is holy writ, defends with no reservations. The best thing you can say about this guy is he cannot see the forest for the trees, and we would all be better off if he pursued a calling more in line with his qualifications–like piano player in a whore house.

  75. It is wrong to say that Senator McCain received the steaming pile of garbage about Trump and simply passed it along. That suggest that he played only a passive role, when in fact his role was a very active one, based on his personal animus toward Trump, and the fact that he is owned lock stock and barrel by the deep state. He was a conduit and a courier for this information which was calculated to destroy Trump and repudiate his voters, whom McCain also hates.

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on Fox Wednesday night that he hopes Dan Coats, Trump’s nominee for the director of National Intelligence, will “bring in a couple of outsiders and really dig through how politicized, how intellectually corrupt, how dishonest the senior levels of the intelligence community have become.” He called the two-page memo Trump reportedly received on the allegations “pure garbage.”

    We are witnessing something unprecedented in the history of the United States.

    The CIA, at least some in its leadership, and others in the intelligence community are helping perpetrate a fraud on the American voters and try to persuade them that a foreign power intervened in our election and, without so boldly stating, leave the implication that Trump was elected because of Putin.

    It is a damned lie—-Larry Johnson, former CIA analyst

  77. When I was making the point that the big media beloved messiah, I stated that to Putin, he (Obama) is a causus belli.

    Upon reflection, I wish to advise and extend those remarks, as follows:

    To Putin, Obama is a man to be trifled with.

    The choice of words here is important.

    John Quincy Adams maintained that the overarching goal of American foreign policy is to teach our adversaries

    That we are NOT a nation to be trifled with . . . . .
