    This American Life did a program a few weeks ago called "The Beginning of Now" about how Bannon et al maneuvered their way from wacko conspiracy peddlers to actual political power. If they weren't so goddamned evil, it would almost be inspiring how they targeted the right districts and the right voters.

    I keep being reminded of that quote from Spaceballs: "Evil will always triumph because good is dumb."

Is it identifying the source of that intel that is the issue?
    Yes. Jake Tapper explained it on the lead. A spy that had infiltrated in a ISIS cell is now compromised. Can you imagine how much work must have gone into that mission and because Trump has to brag about what he knows, he compromised the mission and might have jeopardize people's lives....

    I will stop with Tapper after this clip, I promise, he says it likes it is. The president comes and whines about how unfairly he has been treated to people who will have to put their lives on the line for the country.

    Thank you. I really wish drumpf would just go ahead and die in a fire, along with everyone who voted for him. Fucking imbeciles.

    In case you were wondering where is Trump jr. these days : he's hunting in Romania, invited by the some guy(the corrupted president of the The Social Democratic Party) who's trying to get invited to the White House. For today just deers and wild boars.

    Trump got his phone back and he's complaining that the biggest witch hunt in history is being conducted against him right now.

    Not like wild BORES, like his old man?

    Yep, the US dollar is down, stocks are down, university applications are drastically down - nobody wants to do business with us anymore and I can't blame them. 45 cannot be trusted with anything - and now his Middle East trip includes Israel, after he just betrayed them? A lot of what I've read is saying that we should expect to find their ISIS infiltrator dead because of what 45 disclosed. I'd refuse to let AF1 land. This trip is going to be embarrassing as hell.

    And then there are the people who say that "he's new and still feeling his way around". Bullshit. You're new somewhere, you ask questions - how's this done, what do I do here, what's the protocol, who do I contact, what do I say/not say. You don't fumble your way through unconstitutional acts and then proclaim that you can do whatever you want. So hideous.

    Karma is coming, and it's going to be a real bitch. And, I'm stocking up on popcorn and wine.

    Trump, Pence, Bannon, Sessions, McConnell, Spicer, Ryan, Conway - tie them up, march them through the streets and tar and feather them. The tar should be, as a rule, boiling hot.

    YOU HAVE TO BE FUCKING KIDDING ME. HE WANTED TO LAND A HELICOPTER AT MASADA? He doesn't know you don't land helicopters at Masada?

    Just read the Newsweek article. Holy fucking shitballs. Instead of taking the preferred way up (cable car), he canceled the visit because he couldn't land up there. OMFG.

    Speculation is picking up that Trump is going to preemptively pardon Flynn and Manafort to keep them quiet. He supposedly sent Flynn a message to "stay strong." Flynn is facing mounting legal fees and is looking for a way to pickup some business.

    Okay...Flynn will ignore the subpoena to testify. Trump’s message was a heads up to hold on until the pardon.

    He's scared. Just think what the city people would do to him.

    He doesn't care about historical or cultural sites if he can't put up a hotel with his name in big gold letters next to them.
