McCain slams Trump over siding with Putin on Russia meddling

Historically, this site has been pro-Putin. Today, Donald Trump jumped on the Saboteur Train and expressed his belief that Putin told the truth in denying that Russia hacked the 2016 election.

Trump thus split again with the (((Deep State.)))

This is an extraordinary development that promises a period of detente if Trump is able to hold firm.

Straight out of the box, though, came traitor sell out John McCain blasting Trump. Is this POS ever going to die???!!!

MSN

Sen. John McCain slammed President Donald Trump on Saturday for saying he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin over senior US intelligence officials when he says his country didn’t interfere in the 2016 election.

“President Trump today stated that he believed Vladimir Putin is being sincere when he denies Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and reiterated that he hopes to cooperate with Russia in Syria,” McCain, a strong critic of the President, said in a statement. “There’s nothing ‘America First’ about taking the word of a KGB colonel over that of the American intelligence community. There’s no ‘principled realism’ in cooperating with Russia to prop up the murderous Assad regime, which remains the greatest obstacle to a political solution that would bring an end to the bloodshed in Syria. Vladimir Putin does not have America’s interests at heart. To believe otherwise is not only naive but also places our national security at risk.”

McCain was referencing remarks Trump made while describing his relationship with Putin and the ongoing investigations into 2016 meddling on Saturday. The president seemed to indicate to reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday that he trusts Putin’s denials more than the comments of former intelligence officials, like former high-ranking intelligence officials James Comey, John Brennan and James Clapper.

“I mean, give me a break, they are political hacks,” Trump said. “So you look at it, I mean, you have Brennan, you have Clapper and you have Comey. Comey is proven now to be a liar and he is proven now to be a leaker. So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them.”

ANTI-TRUMP PROPAGANDA. SOME (((PEOPLE))) PREFER WAR.

Trump told reporters as he flew from Da Nang to Hanoi in Vietnam that he’s done confronting Putin over the issue and took him at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the election.

“He said he didn’t meddle. He said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times,” Trump said.

Trump spoke to Putin three times on the sidelines of summit when the Russia meddling issue arose.

“Every time he sees me, he says, ‘I didn’t do that,'” Trump said. “And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it.”

“I think he is very insulted by it,” Trump added.

McCain also criticized Trump’s performance earlier Saturday, calling it “sad” — a favorite word of Trump’s on Twitter — that the President didn’t address human rights during a stop in Vietnam.

“.@POTUS in #Danang & no mention of human rights – Sad,” McCain tweeted.

Trump defended his decision on the plane with reporters, saying he is addressing human rights but also “many other things.”

“Well, I do do it. But I also raise issues on many other things,” he said. “I mean I have an obligation — we lost last year with China, depending on the way you do your numbers, because you can do them a number of ways, anywhere from $350 to $504 billion. That’s with one country.”

McCain has stepped up his criticism of Trump in recent weeks. Last month, he warned against “half-baked, spurious nationalism” while accepting the Liberty Medal from former Vice President Joe Biden.

The Vietnam veteran, who was tortured during his more than five years as a prisoner of war, also appeared to mock Trump’s draft deferments when he criticized people from “the highest income level” who avoided the draft by finding a doctor who “would say that they had a bone spur.” He later said the comment was not specifically about Trump.

Blessed be the peacemakers. Lord, grant Donald Trump the strength to hold fast to his convictions. And grant Vladimir Putin the patience to continue the remarkable restraint he has exhibited during the last few years. Bless these two great leaders in their quest for peace.

Rat-Faced Whore Who Gave God-Emporor Trump the Middle Finger is FIRED!

JULIE BRISKMAN. FIRED.

Well, the title of this post is over the top. But is it more over the top than a libturd bicyclist giving the finger to the President of the United States?

There were tens of millions of us who despised President Obama as much as that rat-faced bottled blonde above hates President Donald Trump.

Being white and alt-right, we gave the half-ape his due and controlled ourselves.

A libturd puke like Briskman is incapable of clear thinking or self-control. Although not mentioned in the source article for this post, other sources say that she’s an anti-Trump activist. I think her litte stunt was staged to give her the attention she craves.

Daily Caller

The woman who posted a photo of herself giving the middle finger to President Donald Trump’s motorcade to social media has been fired from her job, The Huffington Post reports.

As Trump returned from the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Va., Sunday, Oct. 29, a woman later self-identified as Julie Briskman, made the rude gesture to the president’s motorcade twice as she was cycling on the same road.

According to the pool reporter on duty that day, “POTUS’s motorcade departed the Trump National Golf Club at 3.12pm, passing two pedestrians, one of whom gave a thumbs-down sign. Then it overtook a female cyclist, wearing a white top and cycling helmet, who responded by giving the middle finger.”

“The motorcade had to slow and the cyclist caught up, still offering the finger, before turning off in a different direction. Motorcade is now gathering speed and heading for DC.”

At the time, Briskman was working for Akima LLC, a Virginia-based company that holds several government contracts, doing marketing and communications work. As the photo went viral with users calling her a “heroine,” Briskman’s bosses called her into a meeting Tuesday and gave her the bad news.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,’” Briskman told The Huffington Post in an interview, describing the firing. “Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things in your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”

As a government contractor, Akima LLC was concerned that the photo might hurt their ability to win government contracts, The Huffington Post reports. Briskman has no regrets about her gesture, and is even a little pleased she had the chance to make a statement.

“In some ways, I’m doing better than ever,” Briskman said. “I’m angry about where our country is right now. I am appalled. This was an opportunity for me to say something.”

“He was passing by and my blood just started to boil,” Briskman said. “I’m thinking, DACA recipients are getting kicked out. He pulled ads for open enrollment in Obamacare. Only one-third of Puerto Rico has power. I’m thinking, he’s at the damn golf course again.”

Heavy offers more inside information on Briskman.

The 50 year old can ramp up the yoga classes she teaches now that she’s no longer in the business world. That’s her in this photo:

JULIE BRISKMAN. SEES THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN.

Twitter Employee “inadvertently” Deleted Trump’s Twitter Page

Twitter at first didn’t tell the truth about the deletion of President Donald Trump’s Twitter, but then came clean.

First a report on how Twitter first described what happened. Then we’ll get to the truth.

Daily Caller News Foundation

An employee at Twitter deactivated President Donald Trump’s Twitter account Thursday night, according to a statement released by the company.

Twitter released a statement Thursday evening saying an employee had “inadvertently deactivated” Trump’s personal Twitter account, calling it a “human error.” Once Trump’s account was deactivated there was an immediate reaction among Twitter users until the account reappeared several minutes after.

“Earlier today @realdonaldtrump’s account was inadvertently deactivated due to human error by a Twitter employee. The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again,” Twitter said in a statement shortly after the incident.

Twitter declined to comment about the employee who deactivated the president’s account when contacted by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

An accident?

Uh, apparently not.

Excerpt from The Guardian

A Twitter employee deactivated Donald Trump’s personal account on their last day of work, the company said on Thursday, likely meaning the action was deliberate.

The move by the employee – who has not been named – meant that the president’s @realdonaldtrump account was down for 11 minutes.

During the brief period of downtime, shortly before 4pm Pacific time (11pm GMT), anyone going to the @realDonaldTrump Twitter page would see the message “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!”

After widespread speculation about what had happened, Twitter initially said the account had been inadvertently deactivated “due to human error by a Twitter employee”.

“The account was down for 11 minutes, and has since been restored. We are continuing to investigate and are taking steps to prevent this from happening again,” the company said in a statement.

But soon after the company’s @Twittergov account posted another statement revealing the outage was due to an employee’s action on their final day in the job .

“Through our investigation we have learned that this was done by a Twitter customer support employee who did this on the employee’s last day. We are conducting a full internal review,” the new statement said.

The company did not immediately reply to Guardian requests to clarify the process.

If the deleter is identified, I wonder if it will help him or her get a new job at a liberal tech firm. I would speculate that it would make it more difficult since the deleter has shown that he or she can’t be trusted.

Breaking: President Trump in TWITTER WAR with Fat Slob Michael Moore

Trump knew that Michael Moore would respond. He was baiting him for some reason.

Mlive

Michael Moore is in a war of words with President Donald Trump. The topic: Moore’s Broadway production “The Terms of My Surrender.”

On Saturday evening, October 28, 2017, the President bashed Moore’s Broadway show. “It was a total bomb and was forced to close. Sad,” said the President. Well, yes and no. According to Playbill, the show was scheduled to play for 12 weeks and played its fully scheduled run.

According to BroadwayWorld.com, the play grossed about $4.2 million. The show’s earnings gradually dropped after its opening week before seeing a surge in its final weeks.

This isn’t truly important news, as you would guess. But the alt-right loves the president’s attacks on leftist cultural icons.

Trump’s Tweet directly challenged Moore. All he could do was fire back with the same crap he’s already been Tweeting for years.

Trump wins. With just one Tweet.

Black Congresswoman Demands Trump Apology, Calls Niger his Benghazi

FREDERICA WILSON. THE CONGRESSLADY WANTS AN APOLOGY FROM THE POTUS.

President Donald Trump finds himself in the middle of another feud. This time with a colored lady who wears big cowboy hats.

Setting aside the Trump-Wilson feud, McCain, Graham, and Schumer have finally met a war they don’t like–Niger. They had no idea that Americans were stationed there. Or so they say.

Just so Larry, Moe and Curly know, it was Obama who sent American troops to Niger to fight jihadists.

It looks like a joint effort is shaping up between Democrats and the Republican establishment to pin the deaths of four American soldiers on the enemy–the enemy being Trump, not the actual shooters, aka ISIS.

The story of the American mission in Niger is told concisely at NRO. You may want to read it to fill in the gaps.

The Guardian

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson on Sunday demanded an apology from Donald Trump’s White House for false statements made about her by senior officials, as the president continued to attack the Florida Democrat.

Wilson declared that the deadly ambush of US forces in Niger at the heart of their dispute was Trump’s equivalent of the deadly 2011 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, over which Republicans in Congress pursued Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state when the attack happened.

Senators from both parties urged the administration to release more information about the Niger incident, which happened on 4 October and in which four Americans were killed.

Wilson said John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, had smeared her after she criticised Trump’s handling of a condolence call to the family of one of the soldiers killed in the ambush.

“General Kelly owes the nation an apology because when he lied about me, he lied to the American public,” Wilson said on Twitter.

Kelly on Thursday falsely accused Wilson of using a 2015 speech at the unveiling of a new FBI building in Florida to boast about securing federal money for her district. Video footage of the speech showed Wilson had in fact praised a bipartisan effort to name the complex after two agents killed on duty.

GENERAL KELLY. NO APOLOGY SO FAR.

Instead of acknowledging Kelly’s error, the White House falsely suggested that the video had supported his remarks. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, dismissed Wilson – who is known in Congress for her colourful stetsons – as being “all hat, no cattle”.

The quarrel began when Wilson disclosed Trump had told Sgt La David Johnson’s grieving widow that the green beret “knew what he signed up for” before being killed by insurgents in Niger. Wilson, a friend of Johnson’s family, had been invited to join them to listen to the president’s call.

Trump repeatedly denied making the comment and said he had proof Wilson’s claim was untrue. After Trump failed to produce such proof, Kelly appeared to confirm Wilson’s account of the call in his remarks on Thursday at the White House, even while condemning her for making it public.

Trump on Sunday morning posted his fifth tweet criticising Wilson. “Wacky Congresswoman Wilson is the gift that keeps on giving for the Republican Party, a disaster for Dems,” he wrote. “You watch her in action & vote R!”

The dispute has revived wider concerns about the fatal incident – in which the US soldiers were killed during an attack on their convoy and five Nigerien soldiers also died – and about America’s role in anti-terror efforts in the west African state. Authorities suspect militants affiliated to the Islamic State were responsible for the ambush. Sgt Johnson was buried in Florida on Saturday.

Conflicting accounts of what led to the attack given by US and Nigerien officials have led members of Congress including John McCain, the Republican chair of the Senate armed services committee, to criticise the Pentagon’s response.

Senator James Lankford, Republican of Oklahoma, said on Sunday he shared concerns over the contradicting narratives. “At this point we have conflicting stories,” Lankford said on CBS’s Face The Nation. “We want to be able to get the full, accurate story and get it right.”

Lankford’s sentiments were echoed by Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina, and Senator Charles Schumer, a Democrat of New York.

“I didn’t know there was 1,000 troops in Niger,” Graham said on NBC’s Meet the Press. “This is an endless war without boundaries and no limitation on time and geography … You’ve got to tell us more and [McCain] is right to say that.”

Schumer, the Senate minority leader, said he was similarly unaware. Schumer said information being provided by the Trump administration was “not adequate” and should be re-examined.

“We need to look at this carefully,” Schumer told NBC. “This is a brave new world. There are no set battle plans.”

Here’s a question for you. Are there ever circumstances in which a white man, say General Kelly, should apologize to a black female?

Negress Congresswoman at Heart of Trump Phone Call Kerfuffle Calls General Kelly a Racist and a Liar

THE HORSE MANURE FROM FREDERICA WILSON’S MOUTH SURE MADE THAT ROSE GROW.

Looks like this may be the big story of the day. This is the second post here on Frederica the Hat Lady in the last 12 hours.

The more that she keeps opening her retarded mouth, the easier it is to flip people toward race realism.

Daily Mail

Congresswoman Frederica Wilson says John Kelly lied about her behavior at the dedication of an FBI building in her state and made a ‘racist’ charge against her in the process.

Wilson says she wasn’t a Member of Congress when the money for the building was secured, so she couldn’t have ‘bragged’ about bringing home the bacon like Kelly said she did.

‘You know, I feel sorry for Gen. Kelly. He has the sympathy for the loss of his son. But he can’t just go on TV and lie on me,’ Wilson said Friday on CNN.

The Florida Democrat also accused Kelly of using a ‘racist’ epithet against her during a White House news conference on Thursday afternoon, where he compared her to an ’empty barrel.’

Wilson said that after looking it up in the dictionary, she had concluded that ’empty barrel’ is a ‘racist term.’

The White House chief of staff and the Florida congresswoman are wrapped up in a mushrooming dispute over the president’s condolence call earlier this week to a soldier’s family that Wilson says was inappropriate.

GENERAL JOHN KELLY, TRUMP’S CHIEF OF STAFF.

Wilson says that Trump told Sgt. La David T. Johnson’s pregnant widow Myeshia that her late husband ‘knew what he signed up for’ when he enlisted but ‘when it happens it hurts anyway.’

Her account of the call, which she says she just happened to be present for, has been backed up publicly by other officials and family members who were present.

LA DAVID JOHNSON, KILLED IN ACTION.

Kelly, a retired general whose own son died in combat, was in the room with Trump when the president called the grieving family on Tuesday. He suggested yesterday that Trump spoke the words in question to the Johnsons – it’s the sentiment behind the statement that’s being misconstrued.

Denouncing Wilson as ‘selfish’ in an emotional statement for listening in on the presidential condolence call in the first place, Kelly smacked the Florida lawmaker for her conduct a 2015 memorial service for two slain FBI agents in Miami-Dade.

‘And a congresswoman stood up, and in the long tradition of empty barrels making the most noise, stood up there and all of that and talked about how she was instrumental in getting the funding for that building, and how she took care of her constituents because she got the money, and she just called up President Obama, and on that phone call he gave the money — the $20 million — to build the building,’ Kelly said.

‘And she sat down, and we were stunned. Stunned that she had done it. Even for someone that is that empty a barrel, we were stunned,’ he added.

Kelly – himself a Gold Star parent following his son’s 2010 death in Afghanistan – delivered the stunning statement from the White House briefing room.

Between this one and Maxine Waters, you have a good case that blacks should never be allowed to vote.

George W. Bush Defends Globalist Agenda, Attacks Trump for Bigotry, Denounces Conspiracy Theories

It was a big day for Georgie Boy. He put on his big boy pants and gave a speech.

Yawn.

He’s dead to me now.

BBC

Nowhere in George W Bush’s 2,000-word speech does he mention the name Donald Trump. It was crystal clear, however, that the 43rd US president took dead aim on the 45th president from a podium at the Lincoln Center in New York City on Thursday.

Ex-presidents traditionally shy away from the political stage. It was long considered in poor taste for a former occupant of the Oval Office to criticise one of his successors.

Then again, these are days when seemingly set-in-stone norms and standards of behaviour have fallen by the wayside.

Mr Trump’s victory in the Republican presidential primaries was in some measure a repudiation of Mr Bush’s presidency and his vision for the Republican Party – and not just because the New Yorker belittled and subsequently bested Mr Bush’s brother, Jeb Bush.

Mr Trump frequently criticised Mr Bush’s decision to invade Iraq. He bashed the Texan’s efforts to broaden the Republican Party’s appeal to Hispanic voters by pushing for comprehensive immigration reform. He denounced free trade deals, including Nafta – signed by Mr Bush’s father, George HW Bush.

Now Mr Bush is offering his rebuke. When asked after his speech if his message would reach the White House, he smiled and replied, “I think it will”.

Here are just a few of the choicest lines that might be flying toward 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – and what they could mean.

Since World War II, America has encouraged and benefited from the global advance of free markets, from the strength of democratic alliances, and from the advance of free societies.

Mr Bush offers the classic defence of an internationalist foreign policy – that engagement and advancement of free markets and free societies is in the US’s best long-term interests.

Compare that to Mr Trump’s contention that the US has been taken advantage of by other nations – both through trade and in defence arrangements. He has expressed general distrust of multilateral engagement and views the global arena as a largely a zero-sum contest between competing national interests, where the US must put “America first”.

Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication.

Mr Trump rose to national prominence by becoming a high-profile advocate of a particularly insidious conspiracy theory – that Barack Obama was not born in the US and, consequently, was ineligible to be president.

We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism – forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.

Mr Trump not only has pushed for a crackdown on undocumented immigration, he’s proposed drastic cuts in refugee resettlement programmes and backed a bill in Congress that would cut in half the number of permanent residency “green cards” issued each year.

According to our intelligence services, the Russian government has made a project of turning Americans against each other.

Mr Trump, and his supporters, have consistently expressed scepticism about the conclusion by US government officials that Russian agents and hackers attempted to influence the US presidential election through social media, fake new reports and the release of purloined material from Democratic Party sources.

Our identity as a nation – unlike many other nations – is not determined by geography or ethnicity, by soil or blood… Bigotry or white supremacy in any form is blasphemy against the American creed.

“Blood and soil” was one of the phrases white supremacists chanted as they demonstrated in Charlottesville, Virginia, the night before violent clashes with counter-protesters in August. (Another was “Jews will not replace us”).

Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children.

During the primary campaign, Mr Trump called Jeb Bush a hypocrite, weak, low-energy, a lightweight, a failure, a “sad sack” and a “pathetic figure” with “zero communications skills”.

He tweeted that Jeb had to ask his “mommy to take a slap at me” but that “mom can’t help you with ISIS, the Chinese or Putin”.

Go away, George, you and your whole family.
