Susan Rice is a liar. We need to establish that as the baseline. She apparently unmasks the names of Americans caught up in surveillance matters, especially if their names rhyme with “bump.”
Next, Andrew McCarthy (who knows a few things about this)
The thing to bear in mind is that the White House does not do investigations. Not criminal investigations, not intelligence investigations. Remember that.
In general, it is the FBI that conducts investigations that bear on American citizens suspected of committing crimes or of acting as agents of foreign powers. In the matter of alleged Russian meddling, the investigative camp also includes the CIA and the NSA. All three agencies conducted a probe and issued a joint report in January. That was after Obama, despite having previously acknowledged that the Russian activity was inconsequential, suddenly made a great show of ordering an inquiry and issuing sanctions.
Consequently, if unmasking was relevant to the Russia investigation, it would have been done by those three agencies. And if it had been critical to know the identities of Americans caught up in other foreign intelligence efforts, the agencies that collect the information and conduct investigations would have unmasked it. Because they are the agencies that collect and refine intelligence “products” for the rest of the “intelligence community,” they are responsible for any unmasking; and they do it under “minimization” standards that FBI Director James Comey, in recent congressional testimony, described as “obsessive” in their determination to protect the identities and privacy of Americans. Understand: There would have been no intelligence need for Susan Rice to ask for identities to be unmasked. If there had been a real need to reveal the identities — an intelligence need based on American interests — the unmasking would have been done by the investigating agencies.
So why would Rice need to unmask Americans identities if the other agencies did not? Let’s go to Rice:
Let me explain how this works. I was the National Security Advisor. My job is to protect the American people and the security of our country. That’s the same as the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the CIA director. And every morning, to enable us to do that, we received from the intelligence community a compilation of intelligence reports that the IC, the intelligence community, has selected for us on a daily basis to give us the best information as to what’s going on around the world.
She’s a political appointee. A dishonest one at that. Someone needs to explain how her judgment is more finely honed than the NSA or the CIA. Neither agency found it necessary to unmask Trump, his family and his aides.
But she did. And it had nothing to do with Russia. So what was the justification? Apparently she thinks Trump is going to bomb America:
But let’s say there was a conversation between two foreigners about a conversation they were having with an American, who was proposing to sell to them high-tech bomb making equipment. Now, if that came to me as National Security Advisor, it would matter enormously. Is this some kook sitting in his living room communicating via the internet, offering to sell something he doesn’t have? Or is it a serious person or company or entity with the ability to provide that technology perhaps to an adversary? That would be an example of a case where knowing who the U.S. person was, was necessary to assess the information.
So when that occurred, what I would do, or what any official would do, is to ask their briefer whether the intelligence committee would go through its process — and there’s a long-standing, established process — to decide whether that information as to who the identity of the U.S. person was could be provided to me. So they’d take that question back, they’d put it through a process, and the intelligence community made the determination as to whether or not the identity of that American individual could be provided to me.
She is implying that Trump wanted to bomb the US or sell bomb technology to a foreign entity.
Heady stuff. Then she states:
We’d only do it to protect the American people, to do our jobs in the national security realm. That’s the only reason.
What was it about Trump that threatened national security? From what was she protecting the American people? What did she know that the CIA and NSA did not? Inquiring minds want to know.
And if all this was true, why did she lie about it?
What exactly was the threat?
Rice went straight to Andrea Bitchell of PMSNBC because she knew she’d get a warm reception and the opportunity to avoid the real questions.
One needs to put Rice in the proper context based on her past statements.
She blamed the video for the Benghazi attacks.
She said Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction.
She said she knew nothing about the unmasking.
And the cherry on top- she had the audacity to lecture Trump about making false statements.
Susan Rice is a lying, deceitful political hack. Put her under oath so we can watch eight hours of someone pleading the 5th.
Susan Rice is a total screwball its her and the liberal wacko demacrat establisment that’s a real threat to the U.S. of A its the open border advocates that are the real threat to america and its liberal pin-heads themselves that and the biggist threats to america and americans
Of course she would feel that way….and one would suspect that any of the millions of Anti-Trump, Never-Trump voters on the Left (and the claimed middle) likely would say the same thing if given the soap-box.
Bottom line as it has been stated repeatedly: The only agencies with authority in this matter are the FBI, CIA, and NSA…..Rice is right up there with that huge joke, Cummings, as being among the most partisan for the Democratic Party….
Rice is a SPECIFIC reason there are parameters in such areas that restrict any ‘investigation’ other than through those agencies….but as we all know, that Zero chaffed under those restrictions for eight years…..that Zero unilaterally changed those parameters just before leaving office for the specific reason to hinder the Trump administration, giving the data compiled by those three agencies to SIXTEEN other so-called ‘intelligence’ agencies with practically non-existent security guidelines and to guarantee that information would be leaked……..
Had such occurred back when the Zero was preparing for office, and with his complete backing by the MSM, we would be seeing Bush administration heads rolling fore and aft at that precise moment in time.
But the reality of the matter is that we, as a country, believe in the rule of law, Bush would never in his wildest dreams have entertained such a treasonous modus operandi.
Unfortunately, Barak Obama, entertained no such qualms, he is bogus, anlthough he enjoyed viewing himself as a despot, (although the reality is he was in line with those third-world parroting narcissists whom strut through their moment in time)……
That is his mentality, that is the Leftist mentality, and that is the mentality of the Democratic Party…..Susan Rice aka Susan Obama’s sole purpose has been to further the interests of the Democratic Party and her self-vindication of “I thought he wuz a deer.” ain’t gone wash…………
All these people so concerned and worried about US citizens colluding with Russians… why were they just looking the other way while Hillary, Podesta and the Clinton Foundation cozied up to the Russians?
How many REAL security threats fell through the cracks while Obama obsessed about Trump? San Bernardino? Orlando? Damn.
When it came to the web being filled with comments about how lazy Hillary was, only campaigning a day or two a week: It was NOT the Russians, it was us!
When it came to the web being filled with comments about how sickly Hillary was: It was NOT the Russians, it was us!
When it came to the web being filled with comments about how greedy Hillary was: It was NOT the Russians, it was us!
When it came to the web being filled with comments about how horrible a speaker Hillary was: It was NOT the Russians, it was us!
Susan Rice implied, no, openly stated, that it was Russians who started these things on the web, and that Trump, & his team, was behind it.
All you had to do was watch and you couldn’t keep from expressing yourself about those things.
Even the so-called Russian hack of the DNC was actually (how have we forgotten?) a leak, not a hack. And the poor young man who leaked it to Wikileaks Seth Rich was shot in the back at 4AM a few days afterwards.
His leak to Julian Assange came about because, as a Bernie supporter and DNC employee, he learned how Hillary stole the primary from Bernie.
There was No Russian Hack!
@Nanny G: Well. Nanny G, Benghazi was about a video………….wasn’t it??
@Bill: Well, Bill, as I’m sure you know, the Democrats are old hands at the adage “The best defense is a good offense”…….
To her Trump and his administration is a threat. And that is the problem.
From The Hill, April 4, 2017: CNN’s Lemon calls Susan Rice story a ‘diversion’
…which is exactly what it is.
Reputable, responsible journalists are finally pointing out that the Trump administration’s bullshit is, in fact, bullshit. It’s about time.
Would hope that by "reputable and responsible", you mean " neutral and non-partisan"..? Apparently not…
The CNN article has been out several days, so which other "Reputable, responsible journalists" are finally pointing this out. That is, if we MUST consider this Lemon a "reputable, responsible" journalist……
Could you please post links for these other "reputable, responsible" journalists? But PLEASE do not troop out MSNBC………………………..
Don't embarrass yourself, Greg.
Pointing out that a lie is a lie or that a diversion is a diversion is not a partisan act. It’s responsible journalism. It only sounds partisan because the party being criticized appears to have fully embraced lies as their means to power. They won an election based on lies, and they’re lying now in an effort to conceal that fact.
At this point, anyone who assumes statements from the Trump administration or the GOP are truthful has got to be totally delusional. Everyone has lied occasionally. It’s a common human failing. But these people lie constantly, and don’t seem to care when they’re caught at it. They just roll out another lie.
The Russian lies were a distraction allowed them plausible deniability for the illegal unmasking.
The information went into the Presidents daily briefing, so he knew and cant call Rice and others rougue. With no Russian evidence the spying and unmasking had only political uses.
Long after Hillary left the government she was given federal secrets, not just the briefings that candidates get.
When the FBI testified she was incompetent with secrecy and security after all the years she has been involved in the government, well who with any patriotism at all could vote for her?
But this Rice woman she needs to be deposed and Farkas under oath. There are paper trails that can prove if they lie or not.
Dont let them normalize these deep state, police state tactics, well this happens daily no citizen is allowed privacy, especially if they run against a Clinton.
I saw this bumper sticker on a car in Walmart parking lot in Yreka CA POLITICIAN ARE LIKE DIAPARS THE NEED CHANGING AND FOR THE VERY SAME REASON
On your first sentence, let me say that I agree with you 100%.
From that point on………….
1) Thought the election was won upon the electoral vote, but please humor me…..could you please note what ‘lies’ you are alluding to that “won them the election?”
2) Could you please note which lies are they now putting out to “conceal that fact”…
3) Careful whom you are alluding as “totally disillusion”….
4) So…what is the ‘lie’ they’ve now been caught at?
TRUE….”Pointing out that a lie is a lie or that a diversion is a diversion is not a partisan act. ”
Unfortunately, just a few sentences later you pointed out yourself as the blatant partisan you are: “At this point, anyone who assumes statements from the Trump administration or the GOP are truthful has got to be totally delusional.”
You’ve been asked by others to put your money where your mouth is and show grounds for such blatant partisanship but you have yet to do so. The difference between you and I is that you put out some evidence rather than innuendo that is factual, I’ll concede you have a point, and I’ll post that evidence right here on this blog……. and back you up…..
You don’t seem to be aware of the saying and the truth: “Republicans crucify their liars…Democrats deify theirs.” …..Flynn is gone……same can be said for anyone in the administration should some actual wrong-doing be shown for a fact. Don’t know why Bannon is demoted, but I didn’t like him in the first place…
However, calling someone a liar without any evidence to back yourself up other than stark partisanship, is the height of impropriety where credibility is concerned. Careful you don’t lose what you have left.
It took all day to find someone asking the right questions! Will our idiots in congress ask them?
The vote count is nothing more than a reflection of public opinion. Public opinion was manipulated by way of lies. There was such an avalanche of lies that it’s hard to decide on a favorite. I especially enjoyed the one about Lee Harvey Oswald having been photographed with Ted Cruz’s father.
Do you really believe Obama ordered the wiretapping of Donald Trump? That Mexico is going to pay for our great southern wall? That the Washington “swamp” is being drained? That Americans are the most taxed people in the world? That we could rebuild every American inner city for the money we’re spending on Syrian refugees? That our trade deficit with China “soared 40 percent during Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State?” That the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. could be as high as 30 to 34 million? That “thousands and thousands of people” in Jersey City were cheering as the World Trade Center collapsed? That the real unemployment rate was possibly as high as 42 percent? That violent and property crime rates were rising, rather than falling? That Clinton slept through the call intended to alert her that an attack in Benghazi was underway? These are all claims Trump has made.
What about his campaign promises? Are there any he shows signs of keeping? What happened to that promised investigation of “crooked Hillary?” He told people whatever he thought they wanted to hear, whenever he thought they wanted to hear it, and never worried a bit about truth or obvious contradictions. How’s that secret plan to quickly defeat ISIS coming? He knows more than the generals. Where’s his Obamacare replacement plan?
To even somewhat pretend to cast an innuendo that Trump ran anything close to an honest campaign is rabidly delusional. I mean, never mind his promise to lock up Hillary and that Mexico would pay for the wall and even disregard that his promise to drain the swamp has turned to the most shark infested sewage pit in history, and hell, even forget all the lies of taking credit for jobs he didn’t create and while we’re at it, even disregard his promise of replacing Obamacare with something wonderful and cheap and wouldn’t leave anyone out, his big lie was to workers who he woed with a sales pitch of helping. His labor pick, SCOTUS pick, and many other picks and EOs proves those were lies.
That’s not to be unexpected as Trump is a known liar, con man, and has admitted exploiting the working man is “good business”. Pretending he ran an honest campaign is just blindly rediculus. It’s like saying he’s not a sex offender even though he was caught red handed and then admitted to it and then comes out defending O’Riely.
Trump was right about Trump lickers, that he could shoot someone in the street and not lose a single one. And that proves true today as they will stand behind him while he rapes the country, supports sexual assaults, sells out to Russia, or any and all repulsive acts he commits.
@Greg: A diversion from the phony accusations? STILL waiting for the first “smidgen” of evidence linking any Trump team member to Russian tampering and SOME evidence that any Russian actions affected ANYTHING. Why don’t you be the first to provide some alteration the Russians instigated?
@Ajay42302: That is an odd perspective from someone who has written on numerous occasions, “I respect and idolize sex offenders, especially the Clinton’s. I also hope all the stories of Obama’s gay perversions are true, because I, AJ, really like that sort of thing.” Yeah, you wrote that. Sure did.
@Greg: Gee you areright politicians make promises they either cant keep or had no intention of keeping.
Obama abandoned his commitment to “unprecedented” transparency.
Obama has failed on his promise to close GITMO.
Obama failed to end the war in Iraq and finish the job in Afghanistan.
Obama broke his promise to pursue a “tough, smart and principled national security strategy.”
Obama broke his promise not to raise taxes on the middle-class.
Obama failed to grow the middle-class and Americans’ incomes.
Obama broke his promise to allow Americans to keep their plans and lower costs under Obamacare.
Obama failed to make immigration a top priority and pass comprehensive reform in his first year.
Obama failed to “nail shut” the revolving door of lobbyists working in his administration.
Obama broke his promise to bring both parties together to enact a bipartisan agenda.
Trump has had 100 days to keep all those promises
Obama had 8 years.
But dont you worry we are keeping an eye on both the congress and the President.
Bids on building the wall have just in the last couple of days closed.
The news showed thousands cheering they just were not in the states..at that time.
Remove the part time jobs created and perhaps 42% isnt too far off but has MSNBC reported the numbers gained under Trump?
Where were Obama and Clinton during the 13 hour attack? In Vegas fresh and rested for a fund raiser, business as usual the next day.
Perhaps you should go rejoin the flock of the hived minds.
@Bill- Deplorable Me: @kitt:
Such intelligent rebutals from the orking seals. Bill spewing a non sequitur rebuttal of gibberish and Kitt chanting “Obama, Obama Obama” as if that somehow exonerates the Putin coddling, sexist, racist, lying, treasonous, con man in chief.
And the amusing part is that you asswipes probably sit back and gloat over what you likely consider logic, wisdom, and perfection in your debating techniques.
With regards to the Ted Cruz statement, I found it inconceivable that Trump would make such a statement, it was not a truth… however, I would point out that it was done in the heat of a heated campaign, as generally happens in practically all campaigns. No excuse for Trump there, and it does cause a frown, but let’s dispense with the contention that this had anything whatsoever to do with the subsequent election.
1) No I do not believe that Obama /personally/ ordered the wiretapping of Trump, however, Obama himself unilaterally altered the procedure of intelligence just before he left office, especially in directing the dispersal of sensitive intelligence into 10 different agencies which is unprecedented, so Obama owns it, period. Of course, I don’t expect to see him standing around with a smoking gun stuck out of his butt.
2) Don’t have any anticipation that Mexico will pay for the wall, however, it remains to be seen. Quite frankly a bucket–drop of that 9 trillion that that Zero added to the deficit could pay for it. No one screamed “who is paying!!” while that Zero was doubling the Federal deficit.
3) Yes, the Washington swamp is being drained, whether it be humans or policies of the Zero administration, it is slowly and systematically being done.
4) Yes, All things considered….. I, personally, get little for payment of taxes. While the US, per se, is somewhere in the middle, those countries like Denmark, for example, with taxes at around 58%, every person receives recompense for payment of taxes. Americans certainly do not. +
5) Yes, based upon the actual Trump comment pertaining to what Hillary Clinton was proposing to spend, and regards to Middle Eastern refugees, not just Syrian.
6) Yes, U.S. Census Bureau, which in its report “Trade In Goods With China” asseverated that from 2009 to 2012 the trade deficit with China increased by almost $89 billion, or 39 percent. So Trump’s ‘exaggeration’ was off by one percentage point.
7) No one, and I mean No One, has a clue as to how many illegal aliens are in this country. In 1985 there were reliable neutral estimates based upon trends that at the time there was around 20 million illegal aliens. So today, 30-40 million, maybe, maybe not, but the real answer doubtless is surprising.
8) Thousands?? No idea…..however, people living there dis attest to celebrations and parties on roof tops by Muslims…..I even saw several footages on social media but those were quickly pulled….
9) Fact is, there is no ‘true’ unemployment percentage, and Trumps actual words were: “Don’t believe these phony numbers when you hear 4.9 and 5 percent unemployment,” Mr. Trump said in his victory speech after the New Hampshire primary Tuesday night. “The number’s probably 28, 29, as high as 35. In fact, I even heard recently 42 percent.”
10) It appears that crime is static, though rising in the cities, Los Angeles reports that city crime in 2016 was 40% above the previous years..
11) Did Hillary Clinton sleep through the Benghazi call?…….no idea, and that has not been independently substantiated though it is unlikely. as the attack took place about 9:30 over there…….3:30 here, the better reference is “She was asleep at the wheel”…..that operation was pulled back and those men died…..another nail in the ‘clueless coffin’ in addition to those servers…..
Trump has been in office less than 10 weeks………………..promises, yes he is systematically working on those, some are done…especially dismantling the Obama executive orders……so, yes, he is certainly working at keeping those……..would you like me to post a list of those Zero promised he failed to keep??……
The “Crooked Hillary Investigation” careful what you ask for…..
ISIS?? Again, 10 weeks, trust me, those generals are working on it……
The Obamacare replacement plan…..personally, that was bad plan and it is good that it failed……Obamacare is imploding upon itself, so a reasonable alternate needs to be drafted, but that is the prerogative of the Republican congress, not a president 10 weeks into his term……when Obamacare does implode, if there is no replacement, its going to be a mess….
Your questions are all listed on practically every Progressive’ site, however, I took the time to throw in my own personal position on them…..
NONE of those had any effect on the election and any contention to the contrary is baseless….give the freaking voters some credit……..your alternative simply could not be stomached…..in fact, NONE of your alternatives…….
Of course, Hillary ran a squeaky-clean campaign as opposed to Trump…..especially regards Bernie Sanders…..
Kitts list is pretty much spot on……..
You lost, get over it………elections have consequences……
As to the rest of your comments….bile erodes credibility………. not going to dignify them with any further response….and if I were you, I would clean my own house before questioning the debating prowess of others…….
@Ajay42302: A liberal talking about an honest campaign. How hypocritical. Look at the lies that were told about McCain and Romney.
Susan Rice ”implied” not overtly said, that Donald Trump and all his aids were an imminent threat to the USA.
Obama has gone VERY quiet.
In fact, French Samoa even has a tenuous extradition treaty with the USA and that’s where he is.
Rep. Shiff, the designated Dem attack dog, has been awfully quiet, too, once he actually saw what was collected and who it was shared with.
The media has become so quiet they felt uncomfortable about it so came up with new “talking points” that leave an impression they are talking about it while they are not.
Thing is going to boil down to this: is getting elected and then uncovering the crimes of the previous administration an “imminent threat to the USA,” or, is it simply a threat to the previous administration?
Obama’s admin was conflating the two things.
They were wrong and will pay.
This is so much worse than Watergate.
@Ajay42302: That reminds me of when you wrote,
@Nanny G: The imminent threat to the United States is being uncovered; and it is the previous administration.
You think CNN blocking for Rice and Obama is an example of responsible journalism? As they were being so responsible, I wonder why they did not explore why just two weeks ago Lyin’ Suzi said she knew absolutely nothing about requests for unmasking, when in fact there were dozens of such requests with her signature on them? I wonder why the “responsible” “journalists” do not hold Lyin’ Suzi’s feet to the fire on the numerous, repeated and contradictory lies she has told in the past two weeks?
Hillary’s honesty and campaign strategies are rather irrelevant to this argument because she’s not in the Oval Office. Likewise, Kitt’s whaling and gnashing of the teeth over Obama is just beating a dead horse. And yes, I get the fact that Dems are out, they lost, and Trump won. Somewhere in that perhaps you might agree that the sitting president should just maybe, slightly be held accountable for his actions? Perhaps not. Was all that Obama bashing and bitching just you guys being butthurt because McCain and Romney lost? Do you get how stupid your grasp of an argument is?
Actually, that “elections have consequences” is the point, not who lost the election.
I would say that your statement to Greg that ” Yes, the Washington swamp is being drained” pretty much blows any chance of credence in anything you say. That’s right up there with your notion that Trump ran an honest campaign (or that it was actually dishonest but because Hillary and Obama were both dishonest, well, that creates some kind of double negative which could only mean it was in fact honest or, or, or something akin to such incredible stupidity). Perhaps you don’t understand that Trump’s “draining of the swamp” was referring to ridding those lobbyist (which he lied) and those that spearheaded (and profited handsomely) from the Bush 2007 economic meltdown- you know, those Wall Street big dogs that he promised not to be beholden to. Have you looked at the people he put in charge? Maybe you thought there was an actual backed up plumbing and piping issue creating an actual mosquito mecca that had so many Americans pissed?
Then again, like most Trump lickers, you likely just don’t care and just prefer to make up incredibly stupid crap to offset this disaster of a con man you elected.
No we don’t.
It’s wrong, a lie, like the massive crowds at Trump inauguration, like the accusations of wiretapping of Trump.
More “medical malpractice” from the guy who wanted a teenage girl to be raped to make his political point.
Sigh…….I’ll respond with as few words as possible here as you are coming across as the typical liberal who sees a ‘debate’ as a combination of their personal spleen and ad hominem plus their personal opinion as equating to the last word…….
Fact of the matter is, and obviously you will be happy to know: Republicans do hold the people they elect accountable, refusing to support those whom do not come thru with much of what they say they will do unless what they actually do is commendable…
As to “draining the swamp” much has been blogged regards what Trump actually meant….you stated opinion is one of those ‘interpretations’…..
Fact is no one actually knows what Trump meant as it is simply a cool campaign motto…..but the bottom line is you are welcome to your opinion though you know no more regards the subject than anyone else does……
I’ll leave it here at this point, with a parting note of agreement with you: Yes, I’ll concede we did elect a “disaster”……unfortunately it will be a disaster FOR YOU…….
From CNN, Wednesday, April 5, 2017: One week, three more Trump-Russia connections
How many dots do you need, before it finally occurs to you that there might be a pattern requiring a full investigation led by someone who hasn’t already been caught secretly reporting back to the administration that needs to be investigated?
@Esdraelon: I guess you’ve realized by now that andy42302 is not a real person, just another assignment from Soro’s group.
Lol. I heard today that a US Navy ship, under order of the CinC Trump was in the Black Sea off the coast of Russia. What, that must be over a hundred Americans right there in the presence of Russians. Does that count as 100+ Trump-Russian connections? Does each Russian that flies over in an aircraft count as 100+?
How about one that actually shows someone did something wrong? For instance, I know where some dots can be connected that showed a candidate that was once Secretary of State approved the sale of a fifth of our uranium to Russians and then her husband received $500,000 for a “speech” from the Russians. Now THERE’S some f**king dots.
Trump is being investigated; it just galls you and every other leftist that you can’t find anything like you imagine is there. However, there is DEFINITIVE proof the Obama regime was carrying out illegal surveillance of Trump and his team (and still no collusion found).
From your link:
I can’t wait to destroy this piece of crap
@kitt: I believe the hacking of the DNC server was the primary motivation for blaming the Russians for hacking. Over a month ago, Comey stated that the DNC was never allowed direct access to the DNCs server. The DNC hired a civilian firm who provided the FBI with their findings. I have great difficulty understanding how there can be a real investigation by the US government if there were no direct access to the server at the core of the investigation. This looks like the DNC is directing the FBI in the direction they want the investigation to go! (Like we already knew this.)
Lets do a quick review. From the mouth of Barack Obama concerning our election he said. “No serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections.”
Do we recall Obama mocking Mitt Romney with this quote,
“The 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back because you know, the Cold War has been over for 20 years,”
If anyone has a beef it should be Bernie Sanders as the Dems colluded to deny him the nomination, but he was to stupid to realize what was going on under his nose.
Here’s a burning question. If Hilliary got more votes just how did Russia pull off the win for Trump? Wouldn’t it make sense he would get more votes? Or can you claim with facts the Russians know which specific states to hack for votes for Trump? What’s your evidence of it.
My bet is Russia and China have cyber activities all the time against the US. Just as we do with them. We know Obama hacked Angela Merkel’s phone, an ally. We know Obama meddled in the elections in Israel. I’m sure none of that bothered you.
Nothing Trump is now doing is beneficial to the Russian economy They would prefer a Clinton as her policies and actions would be a better fit for them. Similar to the “more flexible” policies of the Obama administration with Russia.
It’s a sure bet there are Clinton/Russia connections as well. I still recall the big reset button. Others feel the same way.
Here’s a brief trip down memory lane.
You are clearly an ideal candidate for a FA lapdog as you follow the exact same playbook of you fellow sock puppets. Much like your clones, reality has no place when defending your con man.
You state above in #26 that “Fact is no one actually knows what Trump meant” by draining the swamp, that it was “simply a cool campaign slogan”. Fair enough.
Yet in #20, you state that it is being drained, that it’s “slowly and systematically being done”.
So you are trying to claim that Trump didn’t break his promise because its a hypothetical or such AFTER you claim he was keeping his promise. Typical Trump licker.
As far as Trump being disastrous for me, you again in FA sock puppet fashion, state something that isn’t true or you could not know is true. I’m long past all that, living quite comfortably, and if anything come closer to one that can buy on the cheap once the con man crashes the economy. I can’t speak for when the egomaniac goes on a nuke frenzie or such but would say we’d all be in the same boat then.
As I’ve said , there’s no reasoning nor sense to be made from a Trump licker.
So andy42302 is a BOT?
I’m assuming that after your tirade above, your obvious anal retention has vastly improved….albeit, temporarily, one would suspect…
Nah, he just did what every other Democrat does when they don’t get their way within their own party; he took a payout. Like they did when they objected to Obamacare; take a bribe and vote the party line.
The things Trump is wanting to do are difficult; anyone that pretends to expect he should already have his entire platform accomplished already is an idiot.
Think about those who spend all their time here on ad hominem.
@Phillip Marlowe: So when Little Lyin’ Suzi said she didn’t know anything about requests to unmask the names of Trump team members, then said (after all her requests were revealed) that it was business as usual, she wasn’t lying? You DO know what a lie IS, don’t you?
@Bill- Deplorable Me: Billy, it could well be classified if she makes a request. I don’t know nor do you.
But if she did ask for names to be unmasked, that would seem to fall within the needs for national security. Had the opportunity existed, say in the case of the Boston Bombers, and she didn’t do it, you and Trump would be screaming.
I take it a good sign that DrJohn isn’t defending asking for the rape of a teenage girl.
Now, if he would only go back and scrub that post.
him and AJ are twins, notice the same last name. I’m not sure about Andy, but AJ says he is a d!ck licker. I have no reason to doubt him.
Nice payout, too.
Consider this: is all this a distraction?
The economy is improving.
Real unemployment is going lower.
Manufacturing jobs are opening in great numbers.
The stranglehold of Obama’s regulations is being loosened.
And Bernie should have been the Dem nominee!
Think where we’d be now had he been elected.
@PhillipMarlowe: The reports are that she was issuing multiple requests of Trump associates, requests which intensified after Trump got the nomination. Now, this is during the exact same time that another candidate, one that had enjoyed cash deals with the Russians (and other foreign entities) but Little Lyin’ Suzi showed no interest in any of that.
Your leftist buddies are going to regret stirring this hornets nest. That’s the penalty for being spoiled, crybaby sore losers, I guess.
Shes off her meds again someone call the zoo and tell them one of their monkeys have escaped or at least tell the organ grinder his monkey has been found
U.S. hiring slumped in March as employers added only 98,000 jobs
@PhillipMarlowe: Obama’s 8 year disaster will take time to correct.
