Which is not good because with Trump as President we badly need a smart person as National Security Adviser.

This is true. But who could stand it? Apparently the breaking point for Harward was that he wanted to name his own Deputy, which seems not unreasonable after Flynn. The dynamic is rather like bringing in a billionaire to supervise the unruly spies, whose info contradicts policy. This is some bad, Nixonian shit.

At the rate this is going and the fact that the people who seem to have Trump’s closest confidence are the two Stephens (Bannon and Miller), I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Richard Spencer’s name hasn’t been floated for a White House advisory position.

My wingnut cousin, responding to me debunking the wingnut ‘Obama just asked for a bigger pension!’ lie, and asking him if it didn’t bother him that people were trying to get him to spread lies, told me that he hated everything Obama stands for, so he believed it.

That’s what it boils down to. They hated Obama so much that everything he did was bad, and everything bad was a sign of/confirmation of how awful he was. It didn’t matter that every other President did the same thing. Obama doing it was BAD!

A friend of Harward’s said he was reluctant to take the job because the White House seems so chaotic. Harward called the offer a “s*** sandwich,” the friend said.

Seeing a lot of reports that the earlier EO shaking up the NSC played a huge role in Harward’s decision not to take the job. Am hearing that having the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs as a permanent member and having Bannon’s role be unclear were particularly disturbing.

From the previous thread:

re: #418 KGxvi

I’ve gotten two [calls from pollsters] in my life. Once on my cell and once on a land line when I was living with my folks. Another aspect of it is that pollsters have probably found certain areas of the country that are a microcosm of the the entire country, so they might focus on those places. Sort of the old “but does it play in Peoria?”

That could be. This district must be all wingnuts who all voted for Trump (after all Nate Silver said it was the most likely to go for him during the election), so there’s no need to get their opinions. - Pollsters.

See also military bases in reference to Peoria. Military personnel come from every area of the country. They hold all sorts of views. But somehow the press and the public seems to think “military personnel are conservatives.”

Glad to have you back—we need you here with the whole Putin thing.

I’ve been more or less okay. Been taking my internet in small doses, and as soon as I start feeling stressed I just step away. It’s the only way to maintain any semblance of emotional equilibrium.

There was this old Sufi story where at one point the main character picks up a small stone and says (or is told—can’t remember which): “See this tiny pebble? It’s nothing, right? So small. But if you hold it right up close to your eye, it’s suddenly huge and blocks all your vision. Problems are like that”

So yeah, when the pebbles starts looking like boulders, I know it’s time to take a break. Bless the Sufis & their psychology for helping to keep me sane through the years.

Those who voted for Trump wanted/want the madness the world saw on display today. They don’t seem to be overly concerned that we have a well-functioning government and a sane president. When they voted, they voted for four years of reality TV. They want to be entertained. They also appear to lack critical thinking skills and to have a “burn the whole d*mn thing down” mentality. I believe they’ll hold onto this mentality until the sh*t hits the fan and lands at their feet. I’ve seen this all before, a scenario in which many don’t care what a politician, or a group of politicians, do/does until it negatively impacts them. For many, things have to get personal before they give a d*mn.

Several White House staffers were dismissed Thursday morning after failing FBI background checks, according to sources familiar with the matter.

Some of the aides were “walked out of the building by security” on Wednesday after not passing the SF86, a Questionnaire for National Security Positions for security clearance.

Among those who won’t be working at the White House was President Donald Trump’s director of scheduling, Caroline Wiles, the daughter of Susan Wiles, Trump’s Florida campaign director and former chief of staff to Governor Rick Scott. Wiles, who resigned Friday before the background check was completed, was appointed deputy assistant secretary before the inauguration in January. Two sources close to Wiles said she will get another job in Treasury.

She’s among others who failed to pass the intensive background check, which includes questions on the applicant’s credit score, substance use and other personal subjects.

We’re all going to run out of metaphors and similes for the Trump disaster.

It was a request for more money for the Former Presidents’ pension fund, because there would be one more Former President. No increase in the amount of the pension, just an increase in the number of people receiving it.

But, as we’ve observed, there are bloggers who knowingly take these tiny bits of uncontroversial truth and craft them into the latest OUTRAGE!!! email, full of lies, but immediately accepted as gospel by wingnuts.

You really have to be a fuckup if you can’t pass the same vetting that Bannon, Conway, and Miller did.

Or were they vetted? I can’t remember.

I’m sure Bannon, Conway, and Miller were “vetted”, but not in the same way as sane people prefer vetting.

The segment of our society who are very much supporting Trump are in a deeply revanchist mood, a destructive mood. To them Trump is a hero when he takes on “the media” etc.

My beliefs are a threat to these people. And I want to dismantle their worldview, and they know it. Me, and all the other modernists who want to push forward. The Trumpers feel unsafe in the world of the 21st century, they prefer a century before the 20th. They want their strongman to return them to a simpler world.

That is the bottom line.

“Scoop! White House dismisses 6 over failed background checks”

Sounds like an infestation of unqualified individuals with unethical backgrounds to me! This definitely disproves Trump’s claim that he only hires the best people.

Judge orders Pruitt to release emails by Tuesday

A state judge in Oklahoma today ordered Scott Pruitt to release by Tuesday potentially thousands of emails he exchanged with fossil fuel interests in his job as state attorney general, according to the watchdog groups that sued seeking the communications.

That deadline will come after the vote in the Senate on Friday that is expected to confirm Pruitt as the next administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.

The lawsuit was brought last week by the Center for Media and Democracy, a left-leaning group that has several outstanding records requests before Pruitt’s office dating back to January 2015. They argued Pruitt was slow-walking the releases and improperly withholding emails to and from oil, gas and coal companies, and conservative organizations. Pruitt’s office says it is answering requests in the order in which they are received.

The order from Judge Aletia Haynes Timmons of the District Court in Oklahoma County does not necessarily mean all 2,600 emails sought by the CMD will be released, as Pruitt’s office can still withhold certain documents that are subject to exemptions in the state’s records law.

It’s twitter. Isn’t that a given when you don’t know who’s legit or not when they aren’t checked off. And yeah, I’m not verified, but that’s by choice. I’m also not a federal official who may or may not be dropping white supremacist tweets regularly (or claiming my account was hacked by someone who then posts white supremacist stuff).

Their positions didn’t require confirmation by the Senate.

Yeah, but were they vetted? The director of scheduling was, but all of these “counselors to the President” weren’t?

Who am I kidding? Of course they weren’t.

Here’s something you can do now. I do not know how long it will be up. I just completed it and you can really get your thoughts across because there is a lot of “other” with wide open spaces for typing. Wow, did I just have fun. Pretty straight up self serving attempt at garnering support, but like I said lots of space to leave your true thoughts behind. I did not resort to name calling, only mocking the blatant leanings of the entire survey. Boo Hoo Hoo. Go get em. Trump has a survey on his website about media bias. It would TERRIBLE if we all took it to balance out the results!

Oh man, that was relaxing. “So. What do you really think? Let us know,” Oh boy. Let me get a drink and sit down and enjoy this.

Seeing a lot of reports that the earlier EO shaking up the NSC played a huge role in Harward’s decision not to take the job. Am hearing that having the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs as a permanent member and having Bannon’s role be unclear were particularly disturbing.

Notice there have been no EOs taking Bannon off of the NSC and restoring the status quo there.

Which confirms the fact that 2% of the world’s population is so removed from the rest of the world and actual reality that they think Trump is actually doing a great job. Trump’s current approval rating amongst Republicans are nothing short of cultish at this point. 98% of the world thinks Trump is a babbling buffoon with no sense of anything resembling truth or ability to articulate reality.

The most fitting definition that fits this notion of group separation from the overwhelming majority, reality-disengaged ideology, and adherence to a dear leader is of a cult.

It was a request for more money for the Former Presidents’ pension fund, because there would be one more Former President. No increase in the amount of the pension, just an increase in the number of people receiving it.

But, as we’ve observed, there are bloggers who knowingly take these tiny bits of uncontroversial truth and craft them into the latest OUTRAGE!!! email, full of lies, but immediately accepted as gospel by wingnuts.

Mrs. FBW these days is constantly asking me whether this or that source is reputable before liking/sharing articles on FB. Last thing we want to do is become Confirmation Bias Morons.
