In Press Conference With Angela Merkel, Trump Blames Wiretap Lie on 9/11 Truther Napolitano

And refuses to back down on implicating Britain
Politics • Views: 31,264

Once again, our so-called president has embarrassed the United States in front of the whole world, at his press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, by:

  1. Refusing to withdraw his claim that Obama ordered him to be "wiretapped."
  2. Refusing to withdraw his claim that British intelligence helped Obama commit this alleged crime.
  3. Citing as his source "a certain very talented legal mind" on Fox News and saying, "We said nothing. Ask Fox News."

So, at the same time as he refused to repudiate or apologize for accusing President Obama of a serious crime, he tried to weasel out of it and blamed Fox News for reporting it in the first place.

WASHINGTON — President Trump refused to back down on Friday after his White House aired an unverified claim that Britain’s spy agency secretly monitored him during last year’s campaign at the behest of President Barack Obama, fueling a rare rupture between the United States and its most important international partner.

Although his aides in private conversations since Thursday night had tried to calm British officials who were livid over the claim, Mr. Trump made clear that he felt the White House had nothing to retract or apologize for. He said his spokesman was simply repeating an assertion made by a Fox News commentator.

“We said nothing,” Mr. Trump told a German reporter who asked about the matter at a joint White House news conference with Chancellor Angela Merkel. “All we did was quote a certain very talented legal mind who was the one responsible for saying that on television. I didn’t make an opinion on it.” He added: “You shouldn’t be talking to me. You should be talking to Fox.”

Oh, and that “very talented legal mind” he’s talking about? He’s referring to Andrew Napolitano, a notorious 9/11 Truther and frequent guest on the Alex Jones conspiracy sideshow.

Here’s Napolitano on the Alex Jones show, saying he thinks the US government is lying about the September 11 attacks, and that he doesn’t believe World Trade Center Building 7 “came down by itself.” This is the guy Donald Trump thinks is an authoritative source for news and intelligence information.

As for Trump’s demand to the press that they ask Fox News about his wiretap claim, well…

Yesterday, Bullshit Spice was at the podium, basically accusing the New York Times of being the source of the story. Today, Trump’s at the podium, claiming Napolitano was the source.

As always, when faced with the possibility of blowback from his actions, Trump turtles up and presents himself as the victim.

I think we need to seriously consider we’re looking at an Emperor-has-no-clothes scenario here.

The real brains going on is Bannon, and the Bannon-Ryan-Priebus triad is what is really pulling the levers behind the curtain.

Trump is playing along because he really thinks he knows what he is doing, but the people around him know better, and just maneuver the right people at the right time.

The only way the triad can’t get away with it is when a foreign leader comes by, and is not part of the act.

That’s why we got the asinine performance today at the presser, as very brief as it was. And it was brief. Trump actually isn’t capable of any more at this stage in his life.

And that is why his daughter (or son-in-law) is always with him.

Fwiw, this is May Day, 1935. The big aircraft in the middle is the one and only Tupolev ANT-20 “Maxim Gorky,” which made its only May Day appearance in that year. It was destroyed in a mid-air collision on May 18, 1935, with the loss of 35 lives.
Then the world’s largest aircraft, the ANT-20 was designed, and used, purely as a propaganda machine.

It was intended for Stalinist propaganda purposes and was equipped with a powerful radio set called “Voice from the sky” (“Голос с неба”, Golos s neba), printing machinery, a library, radiostations, a photographic laboratory and a film projector with sound for showing films in flight.

Ayep. The influx of large donations (many one-time in a show of solidarity) will be spun as proof that the government doesn’t need to fund the program because charity organizations will pick up the slack through voluntary donations.

Texas Attorney General upset over Muslim prayers at a Frisco high school

/facepalm

Another day when I want to ship back my high school diploma, BA and JD to the Texas educational institutions which issued them.

For the record, I am flat-out against teacher-led, school-sponsored prayer in school. I had a teacher tell me, on my first day in a new class in 2nd grade, “Deana, we are not pigs, we pray before we eat.” And this was five years after Abington Twp v. Schempp and in the fruits, nuts and granola state of California. Mrs. Gaede didn’t have to stay with those students for another five years, but she sure as hell wrecked it for me from the beginning.

That said, this is not that. This is students going off to a separate room. It’s not teacher-led. As far as I can tell, neither Abbott or Paxton, both of whom have JDs (I checked) apparently paid attention during Constitutional Law class. This is exactly how it’s supposed to work. But because it’s not the Fellowship of Christian Athletes or See You At The Pole, or some other evangelical Christian organization, it’s inherently suspect.

Some may want to argue over how much Reagan was affected by his disease, especially in the last few years of his Whitehouse life. I don’t know what to think about that, frankly. Slow loss of mental capability is one of those hard things, and something we all will deal with as we age.

But, if I’m even within a parsec of being right about Trump, we should see over time that he gets worse and worse.

Here’s what I’m looking at in the future - Trump at pressers by himself, or with foreign leaders where he takes questions from journalists outside the right-wing talk-sphere (which is slowly taking over the “press” in the WH.)

If I’m correct, Trump will never be able to have long, coherent discussion about a topic, in which he can control his urges.

Uncontrolled outbursts are one sign of losing mental agility as we age.

Sure, Trump’s own characterological basis - especially his arrogance - was always there. That is not new. But compare him now to the long form interviews he used to give when he was young.

He’s not just a grumpy old man. He is a grumpy old man, but also an insecure old man. He clearly feels uncomfortable without his close family around him.

Not al all surprising….

Jezebel: Employees Say HHS Head Tom Price Sends Staff ‘Propaganda’ Emails

Two employees at the National Institutes of Health have forwarded Jezebel emails that appear to show the newly instated head of the Department of Health and Human Services, Dr. Tom Price, sending what they call “propaganda” for the controversial Republican healthcare replacement bill.

A series of weekly recap emails sent to HHS staff within the past two weeks read like press briefings, containing short summaries of Price’s media appearances with links to TV and radio interviews. A significant portion of the content from Monday’s email blast was devoted to highlighting the controversial new American Health Care Act. And an email sent to HHS staff on Monday by Price, for example, included links to several Fox News interviews about the proposed Act and noted that “it will improve healthcare for all Americans.”


According to one NIH staff member, the content of the emails are not “terribly exciting,” but are “just somewhat egregious that our ostensible boss is suggesting that we spend time to read about his day to day and watch all of the fluff interviews that he gives.” The employee continued:

“It’s frustrating to see him parrot all of this administration bullshit, both to the public in these interviews, and then directly to us as well, as if we couldn’t recognize it for the propaganda that it is. He’s sent out two emails so far (one per week), and so if the trend holds, I assume we’ll keep getting them. I’ll be very interested to see how they continue to try to spin the AHCA as being ‘patient focused’ as it continues to draw greater scrutiny.”
The employee, who has worked at NIH during the Obama Administration, said that Price’s emails are a departure from those sent by former Secretary Sylvia Burwell’s. The employee forwarded Jezebel five emails sent by Burwell, which reminded HHS staff of ethics compliance training, encouraged staff health and research initiatives, and addressed budget cut concerns. “Secretary Burwell’s emails were not overtly politicized,” he wrote. “While they would mention President Obama’s policies in passing, they certainly never cited TV appearances and interviews like Price does. Price just comes across as pandering.”

“Former HHS secretaries, from my understanding, did not do this in years and administrations past,” another NIH employee told Jezebel via email.

But neither Trump nor Spicey have renounced their original allegation that President Obama wiretapped Trump.

A US ‘ally’ fired a $3 million Patriot missile at a $200 drone

With a price tag of about $3 million, the U.S. Army’s Patriot missile is among the most sophisticated, not to mention costliest, surface-to-air defense weapons in the world. Capable of flying five times the speed of sound, the 700-pound, five-meter-long Patriot’s main purpose is to intercept other missiles.

But according to an Army general, a U.S. ally recently used one to shoot down a different target: a $200 drone aircraft.

Gen. David Perkins, commander of the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, gave a brief account of the incident at an Army symposium on March 13 in Huntsville, Alabama, available on YouTube.

“We have a very close ally of ours that was dealing with an adversary using” small quadcopters, Perkins said, indicating the situation was not a drill. “They shot it down with a Patriot missile.”

“The Patriot won,” he added with a grin. “That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from amazon.com did not stand a chance against the Patriot.”

A disproportionate response? No doubt. But that’s exactly why Perkins brought up the anecdote in his talk, which focused on how military commanders should deal with new threats.

Though the Patriot easily took out the encroaching drone, he said, it wasn’t a very cost-effective way of dealing with the problem.

“I’m not sure that’s a good economic-exchange ratio,” Perkins said. “In fact, if I’m the enemy, I’m thinking, ‘Hey, I’m just going to get on eBay and buy as many of these $300 quadcopters as I can and expend all the Patriot missiles out there.’ “

I was doing a little reading after seeing the posts here on the aircraft. Freaking wingspan was almost 70 yards wide (60 meters)…108 feet long (33 meters). Yeah that was a lot to keep in the sky.

re: #129 nines09

Imagine Stalin with a Fox News at his disposal.

I’ve been thinking that an update of the Maxim Gorky might be ideal as Air Force One
for the Trumpites. Its hugely big wingspan and Russian propaganda associations would be selling points all by themselves. Add its low cruising speed, giving the septuagenarian POTUS plenty of time to nap and consult the Bannon oracle on trips, and massive loudspeakers for lecturing the Trumpen lumpetariat, and you have a real winner.

Tupolev seriously considered an even larger development, the ANT-26 bomber and -28 airliner. These would have had 12 engines, a wingspan of 311 feet, and a length of 128 feet. A prototype was started but never completed or flown.

President Donald Trump has taken to calling his Mar-a-Lago spread on Palm Beach the “winter White House.”
Palm Beach County Commissioner Dave Kerner wonders if it should have another name: “municipal service benefit unit.”
Kerner’s name is far less catchy than Trump’s, but it could give the county a way to impose a special tax on Trump to reimburse the county for the millions it has shelled out for roadway management and security assistance during the president’s frequent trips here.
The tax would not be a property tax, Kerner said. Instead, it would be a tax pegged to the value of any “special benefit” the county has provided to Mar-a-Lago’s owner — Trump.

Eric Wemple, Washington Post: The battle within Fox News

Just weeks ago, Bill O’Reilly, another opinion anchor, invited a guest to spout off on the perils of immigration to Sweden. Though he was touted on the show as a “Swedish Defense and National Security Advisor,” the credentials of this fellow, Nils Bildt, were subsequently debunked by various in-the-know Swedes. O’Reilly himself later admitted that the “criticism is valid.”

How many other major U.S. allies can Fox News’s opinionators alienate?

Then there’s “Fox & Friends,” which appears to plan out all the ways in which it can embarrass the news side. It’s no wonder whatsoever that Napolitano’s massively challenged claim about GCHQ first saw the light of day on this program, which is easily the worst in all of televised news.

There’ll be no hysterics here about how Fox News cannot survive with this bifurcation between opinion and news. It has thrived with the split, ruling cable-news ratings. In fact, it’s a mistake to overstate the sturdiness of the wall between the sides. Sometimes news segments kick off by citing the commentary of one of their opinion folks, and it’s quite common that news anchors team up with conservative panelists against liberal panelists. Yet Smith’s statement Friday about the news side’s lack of confidence in Napolitano’s “commentary” is a clear message to its colleagues across the wall: Standards, please.

Dream on, motherfuckers….

As I’ve mentioned here before, EE and I live in the same Middle GA city. Believe it or not, he’s a Deacon in his church. Even though I’m aware of this, I still don’t see him showing much support for the things JC cared about. He can try to give the public the impression that he’s a true Christian, but his past words and actions illustrate exactly what he thinks about a whole host of issues especially, those related to poor persons. He has a habit of publishing editorials in the local newspaper, so I will not be surprised if one pops up there soon that is related to these tweets. He has a nasty habit of using those editorials to take those who disagree with him to task. Never mind the fact that he’s in no position to pass judgment on others.

What’s the point of that? Everyone knows that the King James version of the Bible is the original language version.

King James Only Movement

The King James Only movement is advocacy by a loosely associated group of Christians, that the King James Version of the Bible is superior to other English translations, and that other versions, especially those based on Westcott and Hort’s revision of the text of the Greek Testament, are not to be trusted and are based on corrupted manuscripts. Adherents of the movement believe that the KJV is the last and best of a series of translations based on what they consider the most reliable of Greek New Testament manuscripts, the Textus Receptus or Majority Text and most new translations of the Bible are inferior to the King James, and are not as true to the original text.

Sorry but this noisy non-troversy reminds me of nothing so much as rival tribes of baboons screeching, jumping around, and flinging feces at each other. These people are utterly clueless about such things as comparative linguistics, the findings of archaeology, or anything else that has been learned in the past 400+ years.

What’s the point of that? Everyone knows that the King James version of the Bible is the original language version.

In the original English that Republican Jesus spoke.

(I knew someone who actually thought this.)

700 years before Old English (Anglo-Saxon) existed. 1100 years before Middle English where it would even begin to be slightly intelligible to modern English speakers. 1400 years before Modern English.

Assuming Jesus existed at all, and did so when claimed.

Ukrainian prosecutors want to question Paul Manafort in connection with a corruption investigation and have made repeated requests for assistance from US authorities, CNN has learned.

Prosecutors in Kiev said they have made seven separate appeals over the past two years for help in questioning President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, including letters to FBI Director James Comey and US Justice Department officials. Ukrainian officials said the US has not responded to those requests.

Under a “mutual legal assistance” treaty, the two countries have agreed to regularly assist each other in law enforcement efforts, such as gathering statements and other evidence for prosecutions.

US authorities confirmed to CNN that the requests were received but declined further comment.

OK so goat fucker Erickson’s Resurgent site is now pushing the bullshit “community is better at charity than government.”

I think I know something about this. See, I work at a church. A church that has a food bank. You think the almost non-existent welfare fraud is out of control? It’s not practical for a community organization to means test recipients, so its on the honor system. So one controlling mechanism we have is wasting their time unfortunately. To get the food they have to line up way before we open, then sign up, go through a mini-little church service, be witnessed to, get a food ticket, go across a parking lot to the food warehouse, get in another line to get the food. In all it takes 2-3 hours.

Basically, it’s counting on people without jobs and who are poor have time that is worth less. Actually that’s not the primary objective of the process but it does end up being a controlling measure.

But the point is, it’s not practical. People who do not really need it come by and get free food. And we have a hard time getting donations to support it. And local businesses tend to only want to give us their garbage — a lot of which we end up throwing out and having to pay a waste removal company to get rid of.

tl;dr — Erick Erickson doesn’t know shit.

A very religious man was once caught in rising floodwaters. He climbed onto the roof of his house and trusted God to rescue him. A neighbour came by in a canoe and said, “The waters will soon be above your house. Hop in and we’ll paddle to safety.”

“No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me”

A short time later the police came by in a boat. “The waters will soon be above your house. Hop in and we’ll take you to safety.”

“No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me”

A little time later a rescue services helicopter hovered overhead, let down a rope ladder and said. “The waters will soon be above your house. Climb the ladder and we’ll fly you to safety.”

“No thanks” replied the religious man. “I’ve prayed to God and I’m sure he will save me”

All this time the floodwaters continued to rise, until soon they reached above the roof and the religious man drowned. When he arrived at heaven he demanded an audience with God. Ushered into God’s throne room he said, “Lord, why am I here in heaven? I prayed for you to save me, I trusted you to save me from that flood.”

“Yes you did my child” replied the Lord. “And I sent you a canoe, a boat and a helicopter. But you never got in.”

Any rational budget hawk would focus on the big-ticket spending items: defense spending, health care spending in Medicare and Medicaid, and social security spending. Rational strategies for increased revenue should also be considered.

It wasn’t only the poor here who fell on very hard times. He knows it happened, but it’s just like him to ignore it. I make a monthly donation to my local area food bank at the beginning of each month, a few days after my retirement check lands in my checking account, and I’m a regular donor to Goodwill donor because I have more than enough “things” than I need, so I’m clearing out the house.

Each of our four kids was allowed to declare two foods that they never had to eat. If that food was the core of the night’s supper, the standing rule was “BLNM”, Better Luck Next Meal.

At my (reform) school, each table of 6 kids was served “family style”, a bowl of each course. All the food had to be eaten. It usually worked very well, though kids sometimes traded away desserts or toys to get someone to eat their share of things like rhubarb.

More precisely, the US has an aristocracy of wealth, and the Trumps are presently in that aristocracy. This is most of the reason why they can do no wrong in the eyes of the pig-people.

Unfortunately, with Trump in the White House, that’s a real possibility.

A more sane person would spin up five-party talks with China, North Korea, South Korea, the US and Japan and come to some sort of agreement to ratchet down the tensions in the region. Don’t forget that China and North Korea don’t have real good relations right now, given the China has cut off their coal supply, and that since Kim jong-Un assumed power, many pro-China people have been purged, including the execution of his uncle Jang Song Thaek in December 2013.

China could try a regime change, but that poses serious risks if it goes very badly (see Iraq War, 2003.)

I’m sure prosperity gospel biblical literalists have loads of fun with this:

I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.

Does Barron’s facial expression ever change from anything other than just “vacant”?

Obama’s photographer was a genius. Trump’s is a saboteur.

re: #337 KingKenrod

I wouldn’t want the prosecutor to overreach, but attempted murder isn’t out of the question. You have pre-meditation, intent, and action. Plus it’s a high-profile case that could be a deterrent for other assholes who want to try stuff like this.

Speaking as one with epilepsy, attempted murder might be an overreach. Seizures rarely kill people.

Aggravated battery would be much easier to prove.

Rivello’s intent was to end in death. His own words.

There is that.

I can say “I’m going to kill person X” but if I am using something that likely won’t do it (a feather pillow) I’m not sure I could be convicted on the attempted murder charge if I slugged him with the pillow. Sure the pillow might kill him, but it probably wouldn’t.

I am not a lawyer though.

“Intent” is the operative word here.
