The Trump Presidency...

Now, I wonder why the UK government is begging Trump not to de-classify documents? - something to hide? was our govt involved in a conspiracy to stop Trump being elected?
- surely not!

Report: Brits Asked Trump Not To Declassify Russia Docs

  • President Donald Trump backtracked on an order Friday to declassify and release documents related to the FBI’s collusion investigation
  • Trump claimed that two foreign allies expressed concerns over releasing the documents
  • The New York Times reports that the British government was one of the allies. According to The Times, the Brits were concerned about releasing information about Christopher Steele, the former MI6 officer who wrote the unverified dossier
The British government asked President Donald Trump not to release a trove of documents from the Russia investigation, according to The New York Times.
Trump ordered Monday the release of a slew of documents from the Russia probe, including a June 2017 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) application granted against former Trump campaign adviser Carter Page. But the Republican suddenly backtracked Friday, saying that he would refer declassification issues to the Department of Justice’s Office of the Inspector General.
Trump said the Justice Department and two foreign allies had raised concerns about declassifying and releasing the documents.
“We are moving along, we are also dealing with foreign countries that do have a problem,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday, before reneging on the declassification order.
The most likely reason the UK doesn’t want the documents declassified is that they contain sources and methods information. Furthermore telling hostile foreign intelligence services what you know about their activities is rarely a good idea.

It’s amazing how hypocritical Trump supporters can be. When Hillary Clinton is involved apparently she should go to prison for putting classified material at risk by using an insecure email server but Trump should be able to just hand out whatever information he likes to anyone because it suits his agenda with no regard to consequences.

Good link.

There are 8 episodes in total.

I just watched them all and would encourage anyone with a spare hour to give them eyeball time.
Just started watching it and he talks about how we never set up an intricate black market because the gov always guaranteed that people would get their rations.

Reminds me of a Geordie girlfriend; she told me her grannie had been caught fiddling the ration system (fake card or something). I can't remember what her punishment was, but apparently the stigma and family shame of that far outlasted the war.

The tangerine Twat's most important speech in front of non truppets.

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said at the beginning of his address. “So true!”

Audible laughter from the audience followed.

“Didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s okay,” Trump said miserably in response.

Before he was elected president, Trump frequently lamented that “the world is laughing at us,” as he criticized policies of the Obama Administration.

Later he returned to the bully pulpit.

 
Lest we forget the times the maniac has mentioned laughter on his twatter I post them all here for our amusement.

Obama & Democrat leaders did a great disservice by releasing the papers on torture. The world is laughing at us—they think we are fools!

We need a President who isn't a laughing stock to the entire World. We need a truly great leader, a genius at strategy and winning. Respect!

Ask Lincoln, Garfield, McKinley, Theodore Roosevelt, FDR, Truman, JFK, Nixon, Ford, , Carter, Reagan, Bush 41, Clinton all had assassination attempts or were assassinated

Oh dear-
 
So it’s the people of the US that are the problem, not the presidents.

Got it.
...probably shouldn’t give them a “right” to own firearms then.
Are you a Mong? of course it can be just like the mongs who tried to kill Liz

Bill Cosby gets a minimum of 3 years in a State Prison for assaulting women. President Donald Chump accused (many more times) of doing exactly the same thing gets to speak (and get laughed at) in the UN .... drain the swamp my ass.

In fairness Trump took it well, he must be used to being laughed at
 
If I was a betting man I'd take a punt on the GOP counting on a blue wave in November so Trump can blame the Democrats for not funding the wall.

Trump On Track To Sign Another Spending Bill That Fails To Pay For His Wall

I liked the quote from Rick Wilson in the article which sums up what a lot of posters were saying on the pre-election thread in 2016, build that wall like lock her up it made a great chant at the rallies but like the bulk of his promises it was just more snake oil :

“What part of ‘no wall’ are you having trouble understanding?” laughed Rick Wilson, a Republican consultant and a Trump critic since the start of his presidential candidacy in 2015. “It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Trump lied about this. He lies about everything. There was never going to be a wall.”

I listen to a lot of US talk radio and though Trump does still have a base I'm regularly hearing those inconvenient " but Trump said" questions asked.

Look, just because the Met wants to play Praetorian Guard for a day doesn't make it a good idea. Beats answering all those calls, and being on a specialist unit does help keep away from the rubbish jobs that come in.

And the trick is to make it publicly more acceptable to call 999* and give information , rather than divide the public and alienate people from their leaders.

And anyway, we haven't had a PM murdered since May 1812, not a bad batting average eh?

*99 if you are the Shadow Home Secretary

Well, I suppose that's the difference between a conviction and an allegation!
