There's chatter online that it could actually be Jordan, and this is the government's way of getting the heat off a source that does less sharing.

 

A lot of journalists and opinion writers seem to think that might be the case anyway.

Fucker's gotta go.

post #17253 of 40949

The source being Jordan makes sense in the context of the leak being 'way worse' than reported.

 

Jordan and Syria aren't exactly on the best terms, and Syria is Russia's client state.

 

Bogus, man.

post #17254 of 40949

Or the 'way worse' could just be Russia funneling Code Word supersecret Israeli assets to Iran and Hizballah.

 

Either way!

Meanwhile, in other extremely important news, the firesale could be on soon:

 

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/14/republicans-cuts-programs-food-stamps-welfare-veterans-238314

 

Quote:

House Republicans just voted to slash hundreds of billions of dollars in health care for the poor as part of their Obamacare replacement. Now, they’re weighing a plan to take the scalpel to programs that provide meals to needy kids and housing and education assistance for low-income families.

 

President Donald Trump’s refusal to overhaul Social Security and Medicare — and his pricey wish-list for infrastructure, a border wall and tax cuts — is sending House budget writers scouring for pennies in politically sensitive places: safety-net programs for the most vulnerable.

 

Under enormous internal pressure to quickly balance the budget, Republicans are considering slashing more than $400 billion in spending through a process to evade Democratic filibusters in the Senate, multiple sources told POLITICO.

 

The proposal, which would be part of the House Budget Committee's fiscal 2018 budget, won't specify which programs would get the ax; instead it will instruct committees to figure out what to cut to reach the savings. But among the programs most likely on the chopping block, the sources say, are food stamps, welfare, income assistance for the disabled and perhaps even veterans benefits.

 

If enacted, such a plan to curb safety-net programs — all while juicing the Pentagon’s budget and slicing corporate tax rates — would amount to the biggest shift in federal spending priorities in decades.

 

Atop that, GOP budget writers will also likely include Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) proposal to essentially privatize Medicare in their fiscal 2018 budget, despite Trump’s unwavering rejection of the idea. While that proposal is more symbolic and won’t become law under this budget, it’s just another thorny issue that will have Democrats again accusing Republicans of “pushing Granny off the cliff.”

 

As bad as Trump is for the GOP, his continuous meltdown has shielded everyone else from stuff like this being at the top of the news.  

 

They're considering going after welfare, food stamps and veterans benefits.  And Ryan would like to just ignore Trump's campaign promises on Medicare.

So, if Trump thinks he can just release classified information anytime he wants, why wait for an audit to be done to release his taxes? *

 

*I already know - just pointing out the obvious.

So he's too stupid to do any lasting damage. Whew, that's a relief.

Just because he can't read, doesn't mean the people he showed it to can't either.

post #17261 of 40949

I think maybe the whole 'trip to Israel' thing should be cancelled.

 

There is an ill air about it.

post #17262 of 40949

The fact that staffers are afraid to leave Trump alone with world leaders both shocks me and doesn't shock me.  That's where we're at.

post #17263 of 40949

Looks like Trump might be getting one win:

 

http://www.showbiz411.com/2017/05/15/msnbc-ending-lawrence-odonnell-the-last-word-show-despite-top-ratings

 

Quote:
I can confirm that MSNBC is ending the top rated “The Last Word” with Lawrence O’Donnell, the popular show that follows Rachel Maddow at 10pm. O’Donnell’s contract is up shortly, and the network has not made any overtures about keeping him on.

 

You want access to Trump?  O'Donnell needs to go:

 

Quote:
My NBC sources say that O’Donnell’s tireless criticism of Donald Trump is the cause of the trouble. O’Donnell calls Trump a liar on TV almost ever night. Says my observer: “Phil Griffin fought back Trump’s demands to Comcast chief Steve Burke that O’Donnell get fired for years. But now he’s president and now it’s Andy Lack’s decision and Andy has never run a single promo for O’Donnell and he wants access to Trump for Lester Holt interview and more.”
 
Morale at NBC News has been low for some time. My source says: “This version of NBC news would have handed the Pentagon papers back to the Pentagon. The New York Times and Washington Post remain our best hope.”
post #17264 of 40949

So Sheldon Adelson (Big source of GOP funds and ally of Israel's right wing) was just spotted going into McConnell's office.  Given that the leaked intel is from Israel...I'm gonna wager this is not going to be a pleasurable conversation.

post #17265 of 40949

Hey guys, friendly request.

 

When you post things (like the McConnell thing above), can we source them if possible? I share a lot of information from this thread with friends and family, and it would be better to send them a link than, "people on CHUD." :D

Maybe you should just go ahead and say "people on Poop City".

1) That promises to be hilarious, BUT
2) I'm guessing Trump will manage to not shit all over the floor and at least 3 pundits will say he became President again.

I predict at least three times he mentions how he beat Hillary in the election by the biggest ever margin.

It's going to be two and a half paragraphs of a grade-school book report on Islam that his staffers have prepared before he veers off-script and starts telling them how they need him to deal with the "bad hombres."

Maybe Trump doesn't understand the difference between classified and high class?

 

"Hey guys, I got this really high class info.  It's very exclusive, and will totally impress you.  This is like, the champagne and caviar of words, okay?"

This is perfect.

 

Trump reminds me of Royal Tenenbaum:

 

Henry: "Did you just call me Coltrane?"
Royal: "No."
Henry: "You didn’t?"
Royal "No." 
Henry: "Okay."
Royal: "But if I did-- you wouldn’t be able to do anything about it, would you?"

It's going to be like Trump addressing a Native American group, hoping to make amends for months of "Pocahontas" cracks, and breaking the ice with the "but why do you ask, Two Dogs Fucking?" joke.

Also, CALLED IT.

I like that the White House rebuttal was the standard "Nuh-uh!"

One of Comey's memos probably reads, in its entirety: "He spent the entire meeting silently pointing to a framed election map on the wall. Did not have the heart to tell him it was upside down."

post #17291 of 40949

If Americans aren't willing to fix this mess, its very possible one of our allies may be more proactive. As far as that goes.

Which means it's only a matter of time before Trump proudly claims in a TV interview that yes, he absolutely did pressure Comey to end the investigation, then is completely baffled when people are furious over it.

C'mon, c'mon, give us the goods, James...
post #17294 of 40949

Yes Comey, yes.

 

Let's let this shit done so we can all go on with our lives and get this country back on track.

Until the contents of said memos are released I will not get my hopes up...for all we know they'll validate the Orange Goblin.

"He's a good guy" - in the history of civilization, I've never heard of this argument working with a witness or a cop.  The only thing that the "good guy" argument does is set off a cop's (or anybody's) bullshit detector like a roman candle.  So seriously, are the "the best hope is 2018" people still thinking Trump makes it through the summer?  I know, I know, I've been wrong about everything, but this shit has got to be unsustainable - this week has been mental.

Is someone saying this of Trump? A person needs to be a particular kind of hateful. pig ignorant moron to think Trump's a straight-talking man's man, but I can see through their dumbass reasoning. I don't know how skewed and morally warped a person's view of the world would need to be in order for them to look at Trump and think 'what a good, good man'. 

post #17300 of 40949

White House just issued its official denial of the Comey memo-story, per Chris Matthews.

 

Dear God, I hope he's hunkered down in the Lincoln Bedroom right now, on the verge of a cerebral aneurysm.
