I think the head of the CIA who's made an entire career around sensitive, classified material might have a better handle on which things are "acceptable" secrets that don't carry any risks ... vs. a failed casino owner that failed at selling meats through the mail.

I'd trust the head of the CIA to know what the *#&* he's doing. People of Walmart's president? Not so much.

If anyone disagrees with Trump supporters they are automatically dismissed as unhinged, bitter, lying or trolling.

I find you to be quite bitter, even on a good day, all while propagating your fair share of troll posts.

*runs and hides*

I did not comment on the empire part because I agree with you on that, history tells us this. When the EU was opened in 2001/2002 (?) for Greek, Malta and all the other borderline financial suicide countries joined the EU, I already saw this coming a long way.

The fact that the Greeks (the government) are not held responsible for faking their financial numbers so that they could join the EU... overseen, simply overseen. Not one cent should have ben deposited to Greek, not one.

Oh sorry I didn't realize my opinion had to meet your requirement of fair. That is allegedly what happened.


Did you read all of the article in the OP? It actually says that the Press did the damage by saying Israel supplied the intel, something trump never told the Russians. And the press told it to the whole world, including the terrorists.

Brennan also says that the president can tell anybody classified stuff, Trump did nothing illegal. The article states the CIA shared classified info with the Russians on a regular basis but it would have been better if Trump would have followed that path through the intelligence agencies where they document what exact info was shared,

The article in the OP does seem to be more legit than many from MSM.

You know, I CAN put high octane gas in my car. It doesn't mean its good for my car or I should.

Just because the president CAN do something, doesn't mean that he should.

As I said, I'd trust the head of the CIA's judgement on what can/can't be shared to the Russians over a failed casino and meats-by-mail purveyor (who, coincidentally has no experience with espionage or politics).

Russians pose less of a threat to USA society than the liberal MSM. Rather they have some of our "secrets" than anti-American media outlets like CNN/NBC/ABC/CBS/NYT/WaPo/LATimes.

From what I heard the president shared from different legit sources, what he did shared was not really important anyway. It was about the computer bombs but it did include more detail than we are allowed to be allowed to know. But we get it from MSM through leaks anyway, there is no such thing as classified info in this country anymore. It seems that there are hundred of leaks in our government these days, leaking the info to the press which seems to twist and distort it. The thing is there is some truth to what the press is saying, the twisting is the part I attack, but the initial classified information is in the article too.

I worry more about our MSM being a threat to national security now, they are way worse than Trump is at leaving out information they should not be leaving out.

Holy # i didnt know flurries were in the forecast.

Trump talked about terrorism with the russians as did brennan.... brennan was the cia director sure, the american people elected trump president.

I see no difference. Supreme leader, supreme intelligence officer.

Both did the same thing, both important people.


I fear more snowflakes are on their way.

Supreme leader? Like that guy from Idocracy? What was his name? Beef Supreme?

What is this? Some kind of fiction novel? He's the POTUS, not "supreme leader". This isn't North Korea. (as much as you might want it to be)

Yeah. This "Supreme Leader" isn't supreme at anything. As I said, he even failed at convincing people to buy his meat products through the mail.

And you trust a guy that had the "awesome" idea to sell steaks in magazines over a seasoned CIA professional?

Ok, maybe he is supreme at something. Having supremely bad judgement...

Wow, I seem to have gotten you all worked up. Sorry, hope whatever this snow problem you have clears up. I'd offer you a snow shovel, but I need to scoop away all the bullsh*t being spread here lately.

At some point people have to start realizing that this is all just a political bread and circus show to keep people going back and forth and to cause as much cognitive dissonance as possible between the two parties.

They're throwing the bait out and people keep taking it.

I see it more as a litmus test. A way to cull the herd and separate the critical thinkers from the sheep.

It's easy as hell now thanks to Trump! As much as I don't like him ... I will give him one concession...

He's made it way easier to identify people who can't think for themselves and crave authoritarian dictators telling them what to think/say/do!

Thanks Trump!

I am thinking at the rate of digging the left is doing there will not be a 2 party system to fight about in the near future .

The renewed anti-americanism of the EU is laughable, not to mention the statements of Merkel against Trump:
"We can't trust the US we have to operate separately as Europe...."
This is precisely what the EU didn't want to do for the past 16 years ... Are they serious now?

That was "we can't trust the Great Britain and America".

www.zerohedge.com...

Who cares about that statement in light of how Merkel's policy has caused unimaginable amounts of grief to German citizenry? Grief to young ladies and the people of Germany by inviting a rape culture in and taking the citizens homes like Stalin did for the "refugees" who were mostly men without families who hate infidels? They didn't bring the peaceful ones into Europe it seems.

The cat was let loose the other day when former CIA Director John Brennan told Congress that he actually shared classified information with the Russians !

Brennan was CIA head under Obama.

The "shares" were supposedly about "Terrorism"

Massive insanity.

Good then (Obama), bad now (Trump) ?


Brennan: As Head of The CIA, I Regularly Shared Classified Information With The Russians


Speaking in front of the House Intelligence Committee Tuesday, former CIA Director John Brennan said he regularly shared classified information with the Russians during his time at the intelligence agency.


"I shared classified information with the Russians while I was director of the CIA. The CIA on routine basis shares classified information with Russians on terrorism matters. It doesn't mean it becomes unclassified, it means that it maintains the classification but is releasable to Russia or other partners so that in itself is not unprecedented," Brennan said.


The comments come after a week of criticism over President Trump's alleged sharing of classified information about ISIS with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador during a recent meeting at the White House. According to the Washington Post, the President shared the intelligence without permission or vetting from the intelligence community. Brennan backed up that assertion "if press reports are true."




Haven't you learned by now? It's okay when Dems share intell and Set up Secret Backdoor Communications with Muslim Terrorists and the Russians but Treasonous when Republicans do it.
