    Donald wants the Russians to like him and not release information how much he owes them. And he doesn’t want that sex tape released from when Donald was in Moscow for his pageant, after all that would contain evidence that he is a needle dick bug fucker.

    • RC

      I’d read this every Friday if only to keep them doing it every Friday. Maybe it could be a trend and other newspapers would start printing the lies and bull shit he does and says that aren’t even twitter related. Then maybe we could move on to talking about all the crap Ryan does and says that is utter bullshit. If it became popular enough maybe even Fox would join in, for the ratings if nothing else. I know a pipe dream but I would still love for the WP to do this every week

    Congress is exploring ways to fund the construction of the big beautiful border wall.

    One way would be to lay off all the Border Patrol and DEA agents who will no longer be needed when The Wall™ stops all the drugs, illegal crossings and ISIS terrorists. At least, that’s what we’ve been promised:

    “We are going to build a great border wall,” Trump said [in July], “to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”

    • Suttree

      If we have the Border Patrol build it, they are already watching it. Savings!

Ok, but that invalidates this particular finding, one that 17 intelligence agencies agree on? Then, at the same time, these folks say it’s ok to ignore all of the bankruptcies, rapes, other illegal shit done by Yam because we ought to start over? Selective reasoning at its derpiest.

    Relax about all the deficit spending Republicans are going to do! It will be met with tax cuts on the rich, and deregulation, and PP defunding! So you’ll get to lose your healthcare AND we’ll have massive debt. What can go wrong?

    “Sen. Rand Paul is trying to spark a last-ditch rebellion against GOP leadership’s Obamacare repeal strategy, going across the Capitol on Thursday to woo conservative House Republicans to his side.

    The Kentucky Republican met with nearly two dozen members of the hard-line House Freedom Caucus to urge them to withhold their support for the current GOP budget resolution, which is being used to fast-track Obamacare repeal. Paul is pushing for a revised resolution that would lead to a balanced budget.

    “I wanted to make sure that conservatives in the House knew that together we can have some power and impact on what the budget will be,” the libertarian-leaning gadfly told reporters. On Wednesday, Paul was the sole Senate Republican to vote against beginning debate on the fiscal 2017 budget resolution, which he complained would add nearly $10 trillion to the national debt over a decade. Paul promised to push an amendment that would slash federal spending and end deficit spending in about five years.”

    Notice nobody is talking about raising taxes to pay for any of this crap. How wonderful, if you’re in the 1%.

      No. Just kinda fold it and fold the upper sheet and insert into one of the matching pillowcases, along with the other pillow case. So your (way-too-small-if-it’s-mine) linen closet will just have a stack of nicely sheet-filled pillowcases.

  • Msgr_MΩment

    The State Department has told a number of U.S. ambassadors to quit on Jan. 20, with “no exceptions,” at the request of the incoming Trump administration. It’s a really dick move.

    Two years ago, I was fortunate to witness a foreign US Embassy from closer view. The Ambassador, although a political hire, had deep roots in the country, and clearly gave a damn. Some of the members of the staff had participated in the local Pride Parade and helped give our country a leadership role in expanding human rights across the globe. They were all excited about their capacity to do good in the world.
    The Rethugs are determined to stop that. They assume government does not work because they don’t know how it works. They can’t “fix” the elegant timepiece, so they’re content to throw it against the wall.
    I think I know how the monks in Ireland and the custodians of Arab libraries felt in the Dark Ages.

    • C4TWOMAN

      The only thing I dispute in your comment is the idea they don’t know how government works. I think they know just fine. That’s how they got elected/appointed. What the do is exploit their base’s ignorance of how government works. And they themselves apparently don’t care who gets hurt in their bids for power/$$$$.

      • Celtic_Gnome

        I don’t think that’s true of the current crop who came in starting in 2010. They know how to win elections: Throw shit-tons of money in negative ads at the opponent. As far as the actual mechanics of governance, I don’t think they’re that far from the average low-information voter, because they had no prior government experience before they ran for Congress or Senate.

        • C4TWOMAN

          Definitely would be the case for those with no previous experience. The ones that do should know better or are blinded by the thought of all the shiny things they think they’re going to get.

    • cmd resistor

      Also, too, I read that some congress people (don’t remember, think it was in the House) introduced something that would reduce spending on security at embassies. There was also some clause in it about something not happening until the Israeli embassy is moved to Jerusalem. No mention of Benghazi, of course.

    • Brendan_M

      It is more than that, I think. As we see with his many bizarre, laughably false claims, he is waging a war on reality itself. Authoritarian regimes often attempt to discredit the very concept of truth, so that they can tout their booming economy while people are starving and no one can argue. “We’ve always been at war with Eastasia.”

      Or he just has a raging case of Narcissistic Personality Disorder and he lies pathologically and constantly without thinking.

      • Mr. Blobfish

        I go with column B. I’d like to think that he has no further ambition than getting paid and getting laid. It’s the villains Pence is surrounding him with I worry about.

          In the end, when your natural instincts and poorly-controlled impulses are indistinguishable from the cynical, textbook tactics of historical and current fascist movements, I guess it really doesn’t matter in the damage to democracy. Though with genuine right-wing populist authoritarianism, at least the economy is spared the worst of the rapacious, unrestrained neoliberal policies that we are facing with the Pence administration.

    http://www.azcentral.com/story/opinion/editorial/2017/01/06/trump-cia-crisis/96237402/

    A major reorganization of America’s foreign intelligence service would seem to merit extensive and up-to-date research plus hearings before a new president decides it is necessary. You do not reorder American espionage with the same consideration you fire off your next tweet.

    Trump owes Americans the reassurance he isn’t acting rashly in the throes of some juvenile snit. He has made no secret he believes the intelligence community is trying to delegitimize his election.

    If Trump thinks the CIA twisted the Russian hacking story to discredit his victory, what’s his proof?

          My prediction – if he lives for the next four years and if we actually have a presidential election in 2020, he’ll dump Pence and name one of his offspring VP.

          • Rick Hill

            Yeah but he’s so tempermental and stoopid that he would likely not be as effective as Pence would be. Him and Ryan would do a lot of damage.

          • Historicat

            I think Pence and Ryan will do plenty of damage. Donnie’s not interested in anything that doesn’t involve grifting or revenge, so Pence pretty much has free rein to do what he wants. Donnie just needs to sign the bills Ryan and McConnell send him.

The big bulls and moms hung out on the little beach and made it clear when us divers ventured a bit too close by barking at us, but as long as we kept our distance from the ‘nursery’ they were cool with us hanging out and the juveniles would come out and play with us. Blowing bubbles in our faces because our regulators blow bubbles with each exhale, swooping around us and gently bumping up against us. Very memorable!

      The last couple of lines of that article are chilling. The thought of foreign spies combing through the records of elected officials, looking for something to use as leverage, is enough to keep anyone with a brain from running for office. Clearly the Russians have a metric ton of dirt on Donald.

    As an aside, Trump swears Mexico will pay for the downgraded border wall, eventually. I guess they called him and asked to put it on layaway, or something.

    • I really want to see how the Trumpskins try to spin this.

      • suziq

        They don’t care, they believe that he will make Mexico pay for it eventually. It won’t ever get done though and he will blame that on everyone else of course. (Obama probably because why not)

      • Andy_Kreiss

        The wall is “symbolic”. Mexico paying for it is “symbolic”. Nothing is as it seems.

      Um, Donald, you are a producer on that show. When it gets canceled you won’t get any more monies from it!

        I think that latter thing. I don’t think he’s entirely comfortable with all the evidence of how many people deeply dislike and don’t respect him. Also, he did the same thing to Martha Stewart.

        Did rural viewers get to count themselves twice?

      • bupkus23

        Actually, when it gets cancelled, he’s likely to make even more money off of it, as he most likely owns the syndication rights, as well. All those wannabe cable “networks” will be dying to rerun old episodes ( OTOH, reality shows don’t seem to do well in reruns, so maybe not )

    Two points.
    One point: Although Woolsey left the Trump team, he still gave Trump a thumbs up by saying if you meet with him one on one or with a few friends, he’s a great guy. Do we need to remind Woolsey that now, anything Trump says or does is viewed by millions of people around the world. And he is appearing more and more to be an incompetent, narcissistic petty tyrant with no leadership or diplomacy skills.

    Two point: It doesn’t matter what Obama does in Alaska. I have heard from very, very reliable sources that Trump is negotiating a deal to return Alaska to Russia in exchange for a prime site on Red Square to build Trump Tower Moscow.

    • Andy_Kreiss

    There is a fairly rw guy who seems to have a background in NSA “@20committee”. However he seems to have interesting info on DT. He and a lot of others are folks we would seldom agree with on anything, and I am somewhat inclined to feel that the anti-Democrats/Clintons/Obama/ACA/”liberals” that led to DT was ginned up by them.
    THAT SAID … we will want allies where we find them and they may agree only on a few issues. I gather they are leery of us too. So, with the preliminaries out of the way …

  • Lesser Tiffany

    Does anyone know who all 17 intelligence agencies are? I can think of like 5. I also feel like if I can only think of 5 and there are 17 I shouldn’t know about the other 12.

    • Scrofula

      That’s been bugging me since the debates. I mean, are they including postal inspectors and mall cops? Law & Order SVU? NCIS AND NCIS: LA? All five CSI shows? That’s still not 17.

      here ya go!

      The United States Intelligence Community (IC) is a federation of 16 separate United States government agencies that work separately and together to conduct intelligence activities considered necessary for the conduct of foreign relations and national security of the United States. Member organizations of the IC include intelligence agencies, military intelligence, and civilian intelligence and analysis offices within federal executive departments. The IC is headed by the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), who reports to the President of the United States.

      Among their varied responsibilities, the members of the Community
      collect and produce foreign and domestic intelligence, contribute to military planning, and perform espionage. The IC was established by Executive Order 12333, signed on December 4, 1981, by U.S. President Ronald Reagan.[1]

      The Washington Post
      reported in 2010 that there were 1,271 government organizations and
      1,931 private companies in 10,000 locations in the United States that
      are working on counterterrorism, homeland security, and intelligence,
      and that the intelligence community as a whole includes 854,000 people
      holding top-secret clearances.[2] According to a 2008 study by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence,
      private contractors make up 29% of the workforce in the U.S.
      intelligence community and account for 49% of their personnel budgets.[3]

    President-Elect Donald Trump said he had information concerning the election hack that the American intelligence agencies did not have. He said he’d share that information with the American people Tuesday or Wednesday. It’s now Friday. Should we tell him, or is this just an example of White People’s Time?
