The saga over alleged Russian interference in the U.S. elections took another sinister turn Tuesday, as it was revealed that U.S. intelligence officials provided President-elect Donald Trump with a charge that the Russians had obtained dirt on him. U.S. officials included a two-page synopsis of ´kompromat´ – Russian for compromising material – as part of their security briefing of Trump on Friday. The material was based on memos compiled by a British intelligence operative who was considered ´credible´ by the U.S. intelligence community, CNN reported. What is believed to be the document itself was published by Buzzfeed, which pointed out
Comments: This is just truly stunning. Who was the filthy political hack who leaked this? Why hasn´t there been the same deep diving investigations into Barack Hussein Obama? This one has shocked me. The Democrats and some Republicans must be giddy.
Nobody cares about that stuff anymore. Not since Billy Jeff used his cigar and stained the blue dress. Not since led Zeppelin and the fish. Not since, well, rap music. Not since Neve Campbell, Matt Dillon, and Denise Richards made Wild Things.The culture now celebrates freaky, and this nonsense has nothing to do with MAGA. Onward!!
Years ago, I wanted to visit Russia. The US Government told me I should not, since they pulled all kind of dirty tricks on people. As far as I am concerned, it is trash talk. Trump has been a Patriot and an American Hero in his determination, effort and expense to fight the Demoniacs to regain our country.
This is an attempted coup right before our eyes, before even an inauguration. The claims in this are just bizarre and ridiculous--that Trump arranged for p rostitutes to urinate on a hotel bed that the Obamas slept in!??! And by the way, one of the claims--that Trump´s lawyer met with somebody in Prague--has already been easily refuted with the p ublication t onight of his passport. Anyway, this is all just unbelievable.
Thanks to Bill Clinton and the cigar, everything is mainstream. Heck, in San Fran this sort of behavior would be considered quaint...sorta 1980´s kink. Assuming any of this is remotely true, so what. I like the Michelle Obama twist, tries to broaden the base of outrage. Only the press will hyperventilate about this.
Trump was never my candidate until after the primary. I always thought he was a shill for Hillary. This article foreshadows what´s to come as long as he´s in office. I don´t like his temperment and indiscipline, but I like his leadership and the team he´s creating. Whatever happens, WE won and Hillary lost. Nothing can diminish that.
This is what you get when you have the two worst candidates ever running for president. I´m at the point where I believe just about anything about politicians and the disgusting Hollywood crowd. None are saints and if you believe Trump is pure, you are naive. Unlike others, I do care, but there´s nothing I can do about it.
#25, if you go back and read the posts on this thread, you will see that nobody said they think Trump is pure. In fact, many said the opposite. They all care very much; they just have different priorities than you do. They´ve also learned to ignore a demonstrably, purposefully dishonest media, not because they refuse to believe anything bad about Trump, but because the media have proven themselves to be intentional, repeated liars.
The State Department held stress management sessions following Donald Trump’s presidential election victory, providing employees tips for how to cope with change so they do not “become paralyzed by fear.” The workshops, titled “The Emotional Transition: Managing the Stress of Change,” were held by the State Department’s Bureau of Medical Services on Dec. 8 and 14, just one month after the department’s former boss, Hillary Clinton, was defeated. “Change is an inevitable part of the human experience,” an email invitation obtained by the Washington Free Beacon reads. “We can become paralyzed by fear or allow the experience of change to
Jehmu Greene, Fox News analyst and DNC chair candidate, faced off tonight with Tucker Carlson, who immediately confronted her about her recent reference to the “alleged” election. Greene brought up the Russian “attack on our democracy” and scolded Donald Trump for his attacks on John Lewis. Carlson honed in particularly on Democrats losing white people and he confronted Greene about recent comments from an ex-Bernie Sanders spokesperson that “we don’t need white people leading the Democratic party right now.” Greene said that’s not the message she wants to convey right now and talked up Democratic unity, but Carlson repeatedly pressed
Monday in Miami after attending a Martin Luther King Day event, while commenting on the controversy over Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) saying of President-elect Donald Trump he didn’t “see the president-elect as a legitimate president” and Trump’s tweeted response, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said he “hoped” the Trump would have responded differently “given everything that John Lewis means to our country.” Rubio said, “I have tremendous admiration for Congressman Lewis, not only for what he has done but what he stand for, and that remains undiminished. I don’t agree with him that President-elect Trump is illegitimate. I believe it was
A coalition of black pastors is unveiling its national agenda and addressing what it calls “the current sabotage that is inspiring civil unrest against the new president.” Led by Rev. William Owens (pictured), the Coalition of African American Pastors (CAAP) convened in Washington, D.C. Saturday to formally “denounce racial over tones against President-elect Donald Trump and challenge other black leaders to cease pushing division among people of Color for political expediency.” “Leadership has to be proven,” Owens said. “The current path by Democrats and some Republicans is aimed strategically to disrupt, where in the end, it’s the citizenry that will lose; we
Democrat John Lewis gave an emotional speech this morning on Martin Luther King Day at a breakfast in Miami. Lewis told the audience he forgave a KKK member who attacked him and left him in a pool of blood. Lewis said several years later the man came to his office and asked for his forgiveness. And Lewis said he hugged him “in the power of peace and prayer” and forgave him. (Snip) But this weekend John Lewis said it would be “very difficult” to forgive Donald Trump. (It’s not clear what Trump did to demand his forgiveness?) NBC reported: Asked whether he would try
WASHINGTON—Protest organizers seeking to disrupt President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration want to “instill terror in” law enforcement for “violating people’s rights.” (Snip) “So we don’t want to cultivate a relationship between us and the police where they respect our rights. We want to instill terror in the police of violating people’s rights. And the best way to make this happen is to allow them to violate our rights and then to hit them back with legal consequences and publicity so that bad things happen to them when they do that,” a trainer from Cop Watch told meeting attendees. The trainer later explained,
RUSH: I mentioned Shelby Steele. I’ve quoted him often. He is a scholar at the Hoover Institute on the campus at Stanford. He is African-American, a very brilliant man, and very much to our benefit a conservative. One of the most recent pieces of his that I’ve come across is headlined: “The Perils of Political Correctness.” And here’s how he begins this piece: “Societies have many of the qualities individuals have. America is a particularly great society. There’s been no country like this ever before in all of human history.” He’s exactly right about that. But, see, that is actually
Women all across America are planning to festoon themselves with knitted, pink “pussy power hats” during a march on Washington, D.C. — and other cities — scheduled for January 21, the day after Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration. The organizers of the Pussyhat Project hope to make “a powerful visual statement” at the Women’s March on Washington by having a large number of women show up wearing the hats. The “pussy power hats,” which feature perky cat-like ears, are a cinch to make, organizers say. “Knitters, crocheters and sewers of all levels” can make the hats at home — preferably with neon pink
A growing number of Democrat lawmakers are boycotting Donald Trump´s inauguration this week, in the wake of his remarks about civil rights campaigner-turned-Representative John Lewis over MLK weekend. There are now 17 Democratic Representatives saying they will spurn Trump´s swearing-in in favor of focusing on their constituents or even taking part in protests and ´resistance´ movements. The uptick in furious members of Congress comes after Trump derided Lewis on Twitter Saturday, saying the lawmaker - who once campaigned alongside Martin Luther King Jr - was ´all talk, no action´. Trump´s criticism came after Lewis´s Friday promise not to attend the
They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation. One letter,
The biggest news story of the day, apparently, is the dustup between Rep. John Lewis and Donald Trump, about which I wrote this morning. Although the story has little real significance, the Associated Press, the most influential news source in the U.S., spins it furiously to drive its anti-Trump narrative. Start with the headline: “Trump unleashes Twitter attack against civil rights legend.” Most people only read headlines, and this one gives no clue that it was Lewis, not Trump, who started the fight by saying on Meet the Press that Trump will be an illegitimate president. And Lewis is identified
Mr. Garfinkle of Garfinkle’s New Method Hebrew School in Milwaukee used to frequently echo King Solomon’s admonition; “There’s nothing new under the sun.” I was reminded of that this week when the rapidly unfolding “scandal” of Trump’s purported dealings with Russia hit the news. It has more than a few similarities with the Dan Rather faked-up story of GW Bush’s National Guard service where an anonymous, never-found source supposedly gave Bill Burkett a demonstrably fake report and Dan Rather ran with it. This time a Bush (Jeb) is involved but as an instigator of the story, not a victim. John
A growing group of Democratic lawmakers will boycott President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration Friday as a protest of Trump’s worldview and his criticism of civil rights icon John Lewis, congressman of Georgia. There are now more than 30 House Democrats — 31, at last count — who have declared that they will not attend the inauguration on Capitol Hill this week. The number rose sharply after Trump tweeted Saturday that Lewis is “all talk, talk, talk” and should “finally focus on the burning and crime infested inner-cities.” Lewis, who sees Trump’s Nov. 8 win as illegitimate because of Russia’s alleged interference
Protestors are promising to disrupt many of the events surrounding Donald Trump´s inauguration, with some protest leaders promising violence. No venue will be safe from protestors, including the inaugural parade, inaugural balls, and every place in betweeen. Daily Caller: On the day of President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration protesters are planning an anti-capitalist march, road blockades and disruptions to inauguration balls. The protests will likely include property destruction, a source with intimate knowledge of the protest plans told The Daily Caller Friday. The blockades are not limited to roads but will also be at every security checkpoint, the source said. The source added that the
