  1. AP Exclusive: Manafort had plan to benefit Putin government "Manafort proposed in a confidential strategy plan as early as June 2005 that he would influence politics, business dealings and news coverage inside the United States, Europe and the former Soviet republics to benefit the Putin government, even as U.S.-Russia relations under Republican President George W. Bush grew worse." "We are now of the belief that this model can greatly benefit the Putin Government if employed at the correct levels with the appropriate commitment to success," Manafort wrote in the 2005 memo to Deripaska." "The effort, Manafort wrote, "will be offering a great service that can re-focus, both internally and externally, the policies of the Putin government." https://apnews.com/122ae0b5848345faa88108a03de40c5a/Manafort's-plan-to-'greatly-benefit-the-Putin-Government'
  2. Trump's problem with truth "From false assessments of the size of his inaugural crowd and claims that millions of illegal voters dealt him defeat in the popular vote in November, the President has often seemed happy to propagate conspiracy theories." "But none come near Trump in the volume of their falsehoods: the Pulitzer Prize-winning website Politifact, on its Truth-o-Meter monitor, currently rates a staggering 70% of the President's statements as mostly false, false or "pants-on-fire." http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/22/politics/donald-trump-trust-erosion/ http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/ A Gold Medal Liar . The man is a disgrace.
  3. Tillerson: 'I didn’t want this job. I didn’t seek this job.' "Secretary of State Rex Tillerson “didn’t want this job,” according to a profile published Wednesday in the Independent Journal Review, and only accepted it on the urging of his wife." "The remarks, which Tillerson delivered during a multi-part interview that took place over the course of his recent trip to Asia, were a starker version of introductory ones he made upon his arrival at the State Department following his confirmation." “I didn’t want this job. I didn’t seek this job,” Tillerson told IJR’s Erin McPike, the lone reporter to accompany the secretary of state on his trip to Asia, who noted that the secretary does not appear to harbor regrets about accepting the job. “My wife told me I’m supposed to do this.” http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/did-rex-tillerson-want-to-be-secretary-of-state-236345 Wow! Such passion and commitment. The wife said it's god's work...
  4. Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort had multimillion-dollar contract with Russian oligarch, AP says "Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to advance the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to a new Associated Press report." "The AP report alleges that Manafort proposed a confidential strategic plan that suggested he would influence politics, business dealings and media coverage within the United States and elsewhere to benefit the Putin government." "Manafort's name was mentioned multiple times when FBI director James Comey spoke at a House Intelligence Committee hearing Monday where he revealed that the agency is investigating Russian interference into the U.S. presidential election and possible involvement of Trump associates." http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-campaign-manager-paul-manafort-multimillion-dollar-contract/story?id=46297528 Secretly...
  5. Trump’s Weary Defenders Face Fresh Worries "Mr. Trump’s allies have begun to wonder if his need for self-expression, often on social media, will exceed his instinct for self-preservation, with disastrous results both for the president and for a party whose fate is now tightly tied to his." "But it’s the obsessiveness and ferocity of Mr. Trump’s pushback against the Russian allegations, often untethered from fact or tact, that is making an uncertain situation worse." "And Mr. Trump’s fixation on fighting is undermining his credibility at a time when he needs to toggle from go-it-alone executive action to collaborative congressional action on ambitious health care, budget and infrastructure legislation." https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/20/us/trump-obama-wiretap-comey.html Throw the bum out.
  6. Fox benches Andrew Napolitano over wiretapping claim "Fox News Channel has pulled legal analyst Andrew Napolitano from the air after disavowing his on-air claim that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Donald Trump." "Napolitano’s report last week on “Fox & Friends,” saying he had three intelligence sources who said Obama went “outside the chain of command” to watch Trump, provoked an international incident." "Fox’s Shepard Smith, on the air Friday afternoon, quickly walked the network away from Napolitano’s claim. “Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind that the now-president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way,” Smith said." http://nypost.com/2017/03/21/fox-benches-andrew-napolitano-over-wiretapping-claim/ A benched judge. "Legal analyst" my ass... Fox and Friends; the Clown in Chief's favorite show and his source for "news".
  7. Posting in bold doesn't add any more value or credence to your baseless, delirious, crystal ball conjecture. Face it: Your president who you so zealously defend, along with his cronies, is under an F.B.I. Counterintelligence investigation authorized by the Dept. of Justice. I propose that you are wasting everyone's time posting such unsubstantiated gibberish.
  8. Time for Keith to put it all in perspective:
  9. Trump Russia claims: FBI's Comey confirms investigation of election 'interference' "The FBI investigation would examine possible links between individuals in the Trump campaign and the Russian government and whether there was co-ordination between the Trump campaign and Russia, Mr Comey said." "Mr Comey said the investigation was "very complex" and he could not give a timetable for its completion." "We will follow the facts wherever they lead," he said." http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-39324587 Take your time Mr. Director and nail with treason those who may be culpable.
  10. Trump Still Hasn't Done Very Much "Trump signed only one substantive piece of legislation since February 20, repealing a minor Obama administration rule that made it harder for the mentally ill to buy guns." "His push to repeal Obamacare is stumbling on Capitol Hill; his budget seems dead on arrival; his revised travel ban, like the original, has been blocked by a judge." "Overall, according to the Partnership for Public Service, he has only filled 20 of the 553 key positions that require Senate confirmation—and has not even picked a nominee for 497 of them." http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2017/03/trump-still-hasnt-done-very-much-214932
  11. NSA Director Agrees It's 'Ridiculous' To Accuse British Of Helping Wiretap Trump "NSA Director Adm. Mike Rogers agreed Monday that it was “utterly ridiculous” to allege that his agency's British counterpart, GCHQ, helped former President Barack Obama eavesdrop on Donald Trump during the election." "The White House has surfaced reports to that effect in the past few weeks in order to back up the President’s unfounded assertion that Obama ordered a wiretap of Trump Tower, leading it to eventually issue a formal apology to the British government." "Rogers said no such thing occurred, and that “it would be expressly against the construct of the Five Eyes [intelligence] agreement that’s been in place for decades” to ask the United Kingdom to help spy on American civilians." http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/nsa-director-ridiculous-trump-team-say-british-helped-wiretap-trump Utterly ridiculous. As is having this incompetent clown as President.
  12. Comey Confirms F.B.I. Investigation of Russian Election Interference, Links to Trump Campaign "The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, publicly confirmed an investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election and whether associates of the president were in contact with Moscow." "Mr. Comey also said the F.B.I. had “no information” to support President Trump’s allegation that Barack Obama wiretapped him." "The F.B.I. is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government — and whether there was any coordination, Mr. Comey said." https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/20/us/politics/intelligence-committee-russia-donald-trump.html?_r=0 Excellent news! Check into this possible treason.
  13. Oooh! Those treacherous "liberals" are behind every tree. Your quasi-McCarthy paranoia is just that. Clearly? Perhaps it was simply patriotic level headed staff who felt it was their duty to expose the buffoon's looney recklessness... Trump to Mexico: Take care of 'bad hombres' or US might "You have a bunch of bad hombres down there," Trump told Pena Nieto, according to the excerpt given to AP. "You aren't doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it." "A person with access to the official transcript of the phone call provided only that portion of the conversation to The Associated Press. The person gave it on condition of anonymity because the administration did not make the details of the call public." "The Mexican website Aristegui Noticias on Tuesday published a similar account of the phone call, based on the reporting of journalist Dolia Estevez. The report described Trump as humiliating Pena Nieto in a confrontational conversation." https://apnews.com/0b3f5db59b2e4aa78cdbbf008f27fb49 But of course, both sides deny it...
