The Trump Presidency...

Regardless of how many tapes she has or what is on them the real question should be, why was she in the situation room as her position does not seem to require her to be in what is supposed to be one of the most secure locations in the US and do security drills allow mobile devices inside given the Snowdon debacle. Someone should be getting a bikkie and beverage free interview.
I would assume Kelly was using the room as an office, come meeting room, at the time and not for its primary intended purpose. A building like the White House where space is at a premium you use what you can when you can I would think. Following that line of thought; as it was not being used for its intended purpose then maybe the security drills were not in place and are only active at the times it is being used as 'The Situation Room' - slack drills.

I have been in a location where there were a couple of secure rooms that had security outside them when they were being used for secure meetings but, nowt when they were unused. People used to wander along the relevant corridor, peer around the corner and use the comfy chairs for adhoc meetings if they were unused.

I know the White House isn't all that big but you would think a senior cabinet member would have his own office. I've had previous employers who stipulated phones off and on the table during meetings, I even had one who had a security bod who collected everyone's phones at the meeting room door and gave us all wave a metal detector wand to double check.
 
Should we send the Queen an invoice for Changing of the guard/RAF flypast/Royal Weddings/Diana's funeral while we're at it?
Bit pointless really.

There is the boring and traditional ceremonial, for the benefit of tourists.

And there is an egomaniacs wankfest, who just wants a BIGGERLY parade than the French.

Donald Trump blasts social media censorship—but he must’ve forgotten about his old tweets

With social media sites like Twitter and Facebook dealing with conservative outrage that some of the most extreme right-wing accounts have been banned or suspended, President Donald Trump said Saturday that social-media sites are censoring Republican voices and that he would do something about it.

But as usual with Trump, his old tweets have been unearthed that contradict everything he just wrote.

Early Saturday morning, Trump logged onto Twitter and wrote that social media sites are engaged in censorship.

Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen. They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others.......

.....Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police. If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed. I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all..

....Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen. Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made. Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!

He’s likely referring to right-wing talk-show host Alex Jones being bannedfrom nearly every social media site and the recent talking point that Twitter has shadow banned some conservative voices.

Unsurprisingly, though, other past Trump tweets were refreshed onto Twitter timelines that show him trying to censor news outlets he doesn’t agree with and for saying protesting NFL players should be fired.


For its part, Twitter said it doesn’t shadow ban people, and though Jones has been pushed off many platforms, there are a number of conservative voices who are still allowed to try to take his place.

"Useless lying FAT GIT strikes again".

Donald Trump, speech before a joint session of Congress, Feb. 28, 2017

“According to data provided by the Department of Justice, the vast majority of individuals convicted of terrorism and terrorism-related offenses since 9/11 came here from outside of our country.”

and repeats the same claim again this year.

New report from DOJ & DHS shows that nearly 3 in 4 individuals convicted of terrorism-related charges are foreign-born. We have submitted to Congress a list of resources and reforms....​
....we need to keep America safe, including moving away from a random chain migration and lottery system, to one that is merit-based. https://www.dhs.gov/publication/executive-order-13780-protecting-nation-foreign-terrorist-entry-united-states-initial …

Nice going Donny, no problems with keeping America safe, the problem is this Data doesn't actually exist !!


NSD had provided data on international terrorism prosecutions only, not domestic ones. Both NSD and the FBI emphasized the limitations of this data. The Justice Department explicitly warned the White House that the data did not “include convictions related solely to domestic terrorism.” And the FBI noted that “database checks are limited in their ability to accurately identify a date/place of birth.”

In other words, having been advised that the dataset contained critical omissions, that data about naturalized citizens probably contained “gaps or errors,” and that the data dealt only with international terrorism cases—not domestic ones—the president and his administration nonetheless crafted the misleading statement that appeared in his first address to Congress.
