It was posted on the POTUS schedule on Twitter...




Wednesday, 05 September 2018 17:00 - No #POTUS travel outside the #WhiteHouse secure area is expected for the remainder of today and tonight.

The NY Times anonymous op-ed writer (if the traitor exists) will be identified - A National Security investigation has been instituted.

This might just be an election year trick by Democrats.

2018 is a high stakes election, more than most.

The "insider" is probably somebody who worked inside the zer0Bama adminiztrazion, in other words:

a professional BS artist.

The Woodward Book is a Democrat trick too.





Sort of has the "smell" of Dim-o-crats, doesn't it? An "October" surprise in September, lol. By October, no one will remember this Anonymous story. News cycles under Trump move too fast.

Look, I'm a supporter of Trump. I make no bones about that.

I also make no bones about when he's done something wrong.

Like now.

He and other conservative pundits are screaming about releasing the name of the anonymous OP-ED author.


The author wrote an ugly opinion piece about the president.

It says more about the weak and puerile "resistance" than it does about Trump.

It says that even "insiders" know that Trump is innocent on all of the speculative charges against him. So they attack him this way.

Hell, this is no different than talking about his weight or his physical shape.

But back to anonymous.

I am disgusted by the way the Obama administration went after whistle-blowers. Leakers.

And I won't change my stance under this administration.


So while the left gleefully masturbates over this fan-fiction that the NYT put out, just remember that the identity of ANY even PERCEIVED whistle-blower or leaker deserves the protection of anonymity because who knows who might want to leak under a communist Warren or Sanders regime!


I highly doubt the existence of this source. And if that comes to light...NYT can hang it up.

Especially with the real provable stuff on Democrats ready to unleash with a fury.

Giving a free pass to seditious traitors is not a constitutional or conservative principle.

That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s...


These are not the words of a whistleblower.

They are the words of a vigilante; this person and their group of freinds (if real) are admitting to taking matters into their own hands and doing what "They" think is best for America.

Vigilantes might be cool in comic books; but in the real world they can be dangerous. At this level they can be very dangerous.

Who are "they"? How do I know they are looking out for America and not just their little peace of it? I didn't have a say in their agenda why would I want them to wield this kind of power? How do I help to get rid of them if I don't approve of their agenda?

I dont even understand why liberals are so happy about this; these people pulling the strings behind the curtain aren't saying they are doing anything to help any liberal causes; quite the opposite.

I am not a stanch trump supporter; but these people are not whistleblower; their actions need to be stopped and never allowed to happen again.

This is the point where the anonymous op-ed author should step forward and take a bow for triggering Trump into exhibiting exactly the traits described in the op-ed...with the op-ed.


I'd rather wait to see if he is all bark, or abuses his powers like our last president.

Its something I need to know about Trump, I'd like to see him cornered on this.


Same here.

It'd be a true test of his convictions.

I wasn't doubting that an investigation would be launched. I was questioning WHO CAN BE TRUSTED to conduct the investigation.

This person in no way is a whistle blower or is entitled to the protection afforded such.


100% agree..

going on mass media and saying such destructive things about the presidency - claiming they are fact.. is not whistle blowing.
Especially in the current climate and everything we've seen

NYT should be the ones to face the music

Whoever it is, their position can't be that important. This administration has accomplished amazing things, even with the traitor(s) operating inside the White House.

Then it's fiction, political-porn.


Something that should be scoffed at.

Bob Woodward might have done it so he could sell more books.


This tells me that the "resistance" is scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Whether or not they can be trusted, this falls to the FBI.
I would assume The NSA will be joint in the investigation....

OH WELL..

Looks like this Trump hit-piece will be put in the trash heap soon, along with all the others produced by LOSERS, like Dean Baquet.



NY Times Editor Dean Baquet is a known liar. He lied to me several times directly, when he fabricated quotes during a profile of my Intel crew. "What the f*ck are you going to do about it?" he said. We handled it, our way. Dude has been making things up for decades. Zealot. Liar.

There is a lot going on in this administration, some I like and agree with and other times I shake my head. Not a lot if difference in how I have reacted to past adminisyrations, not a single one made me happy all the time, just not possiable.

I agree that they should not reveal the source but balk at referring to him or her as a whistleblower or a leaker. They are not either, no information was provided other than their own opinions.

This individual needs to resign and reveal themself. They admit to undermining the agenda of the duly elected choice of the people. It is cowardly to hide and to interfere with what can have widespread ramifications both Nationally and Internationally.

They should have the guts to openly oppose someone they honestly believe is a danger to the country. It makes one wonder exactly what they are hiding and just how bad it is, to the point where they are actually active in an attempt to remove a President from power based on feelings.

Assuming it was someone from outside the times, they should not release the name.

If the "writer" was a times employee they cant release the name since it would destroy the paper.

I don't like this at all.

Subversion of the office of president is pretty messed up.

Even if it's for the good of the country.

And if it's true that Trump is not fit to lead. Then we need to know about.

Not that his flunkies cover for him for the good of the country.

I hope that Trump fires everyone, messes up badly and that the republicans in congress are forced to remove him.

I admit that the actions are cowardly and that it is a hit-piece more than anything.



I will even caveat that it would be okay to have Trump SAY he wants the identity.


But even sour leftist douche-bags deserve the protection of anonymity. If, for anything else, it might protect those of us who aren't front-holes.

a reply to: norhoc


but if these people are truly stealing documents off of the presidents desk


You mean Gary Cohn?

That might apply if he's the author but the op-ed says nothing of the sort. I assume (and it's all assumption as the op-ed doesn't detail what is done to "keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing.") that it's got a lot to do with cajoling, pandering, playing to Trump's ego, etc.

Look at the one example:


Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations.

Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals.

On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putin’s spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.


I've heard more than once that Trump is really super tough on Russia — including straight out of Trump's mouth — as proof that Trump isn't soft on his benefactor. Examples commonly cited include the expulsion of spies. Trump clearly knows it happened, in fact knew it was happening, wasn't happy it was happening and yet it happened. That's not a coup — Trump approved the action, he can't very well usurp himself — and he did so because his nat sec team impressed upon him that it had to be done.

The only way that comes close to a "coup" is if you assume that Trump is basically an impressionable child who is susceptible to psychological manipulation to the point that he's not responsible for his own decisions which would only prove him unfit for the office.
