I don't get why you post here. You only make posts designed to antagonize people on the forum.
Look on the bright side; since the flurry of baseless accusations against Trump's SCOTUS nominee, Dale and philbo have stopped trolling this site with their equally devoid of substance rants about "Russian collusion". :mrgreen:

You completely miss the point. philbo harrangues and twists everything to the negative regardless of the facts.
Pointing out the obvious and restating what actually is not twisting facts. I stated the truth with proof to back it up. You should try that sometime instead of leaping to conclusions with only hyperbole ad hominem attacks to support your arguments. But then, you have turned that into an Olympic event.

His baseless hatred for Trump and his continuing libelous statments are simply beyond the pale.
The truth is never libelous, even if you do not agree with it. And I do not hate trump, he doesn't deserve that much of my attention. I do agree with those in his own circle who feel he is amoral, impetuous, adversarial, petty, ineffective, generally anti-trade and anti-democratic. I believe his policies, or lack thereof, are dangerous to this country (16 billion in aid to farmers injured by the trump tariffs who didn't want it is one prime example) and he is generally unfit to lead. If highlighting trumps continuous stream of lies, braggadocio, and endless series of personal attacks on anyone and everything that disagrees with him makes me so negative, fine. But, what does it say about those who quietly accept those lies and ill considered policies because it serves their immediate short term goals? Republicans used to call those people democrats, but I think hypocrite is a much more accurate term.

What do you and your fellow haters want to gain by constantly posting any and every negative thing you can come up with? Do you really put that much credence into what a bunch of deadbeat countries think that do not even pay their own way as they agreed?
I hope to gain the same thing that you and every other trump apologizer wants when you engage in constantly posting any and every negative thing you can come up with about those you disagree with... the eventual ouster of that person at the ballot box. Trump is amoral, impetuous, adversarial, petty, ineffective, generally anti-trade and anti-democratic. And those words come not from the never-trump crowd, but from within his own whitehouse.
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/05/opin ... tance.html

Trump today became the center of other countries laughing at his egotistical self aggrandizement... and I don't think it will improve anytime soon.
Ive noticed on this forum if you don’t agree with what Trump or Fox News says your “anti-american” and wrong ! It’s pathethic that you can’t even have different opinions from some of these grown man. Then they start to whine and cry and claim your anti American when you disagree with them on something. It’s laughable.
You completely miss the point. philbo harrangues and twists everything to the negative regardless of the facts. His baseless hatred for Trump and his continuing libelous statments are simply beyond the pale. Follow the thread and you will see what I mean. Shakespeare was right....

W. Samuel Patten, 47, pleaded guilty Friday to failing to register as a foreign lobbyist while working on behalf of a Ukrainian political party,with help from a Russian associate of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. He also admitted in court Friday that he steered $50,000 from a Ukrainian politician to President Trump’s inaugural committee — the first public confirmation that illegal foreign money was used to help fund the January 2017 event.

The lefty response on this forum regarding brenn-marxist is hilarious.

Wait'll President Trump revokes the clearances of the rest of the commies like rice, etc.

It's gonna be beautiful to hear the lefty howls of angst, ha ha, said in my best Nelson Muntz laugh.
One hundred and seventy-five former US officials spanning service across intelligence agencies, the State Department, the National Security Council and the Department of Defense added their names on Monday to a list of intelligence officials denouncing President Donald Trump's decision to revoke former CIA Director John Brennan's security clearance.
Ooo... scary, a petition....all DemocRats for sure.

That mudslinger Brennan got exactly what he deserved, although in reality he should be in prison for his treason.

Now that we have names of these hyper partisan hacks, read all of them them out and send them packing!

You've missed the point. High level security officials have clearance to support the ongoing intelligence projects with their experience. But hey, let's just ignore history and see how that goes.
No, I didn't miss the point. Any ex-official who the President no longer needs advice from, for example a guy who is calling for him to be tossed out of office, does not have any further need of a security clearance giving him access to classified information.
The President of the United States has the legal authority and right to revoke former advisors' security clearances.
The point is that trump is revoking clearances for petty political reasons in a vain attempt to distract and/or silence criticism of him personally. While the president doesn't need to give a reason, or has the absolute right to do strip clearances, to do so for the reasons provided goes against the guidelines signed off on by his own administration which lists the following as reasons to grant or revoke clearance:

http://ogc.osd.mil/doha/SEAD4_20170608.pdf
13 guidelines by which national security clearances are typically evaluated and revoked. Those factors:
1. Allegiance to the United States
2. Foreign influence
3. Foreign preference
4. Sexual behavior
5. Personal conduct
6. Financial considerations
7. Alcohol consumption
8. Drug involvement and substance misuse
9. Psychological conditions
10. Criminal conduct
11. Handling protected information
12. Outside activities
13. Use of information technology

To revoke as trump has done for the pettiest of reasons on what are literally trumped on excuses, is petty, churlish and may even be obstruction.
Brennan could likely be guilty of 1, 2, 3, 5, 11, & 12. He may well also be guilty of 4, 8, & 9 after witnessing his non-sensical rambling and uncontrolled defamatory remarks. I can understand how that may not seem problematic to you.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08 ... ennan.html

"Mr. Brennan’s lying and recent conduct, characterized by increasingly frenzied commentary, is wholly inconsistent with access to the Nation’s most closely held secrets and facilitates the very aim of our adversaries, which is to sow division and chaos." Best example of pot calling the kettle black this week. :lol:

Clearly an example of partisan politics and retribution designed to distract and appeal to a base of simple thinkers, especially since several of the names listed by trump under similar consideration (comey, mccabe, strzok) have no clearance to revoke.
If you had ever held a clearance, you would know just how appropriate the President's action is and why it is hardly partisan. But then again, you don't seem to care about anything other than defaming the President.
I have, and I do know about clearances. But then again, you don't seem to care about anything other than defaming someone who doesn't believe what you do... unless of course it's apologizing for the defamer in chief.
My statement is not defamatory, as it is the truth.

Not shouting anyone down. Just pointing out that Hannity makes no bones about being a commentator and not a reporter. Smith on the other hand claims to be a reporter, but he shows his bias by constant negative Trump comments, angry or disusted facial expressions, etc. during his news program. These are the undeniable facts I pointed out. Tell me where I shouted anyone down, or personally attacked you.
Constant negative trump comments... that must be when someone points out that trump is making things up again without proof? Maybe if trump didn't lie every day he wouldn't be on the receiving end of such "negative" comments on a daily basis. Let's face it, trump lies daily about things both insignificant and important. Yet if one points it out they must be liberals.... not just someone unwilling to buy yet another conspiracy theory with a straight face.

In Ruling Against Trump, Judge Defines Anticorruption Clauses in Constitution for First Time. He ruled that the lawsuit should proceed to the evidence-gathering stage, which could clear the way for an examination of financial records that the president has consistently refused to disclose.

You make it sound like a crime that he hasn't shown his tax returns. No law requires this disclosure. Congress can pass one if they think it is important. Perhaps Congress will show their tax returns as well. Amazing how people come into Congress broke and leave multi-millionaires. At least Trump came in with money and bragged about it not like Romney who was ashamed of his wealth.
Shouldn't we be interested in the financial obligations, income, investments, and charitable support of all elected and appointed officials??? Shouldn't the president fulfill his promise to provide his tax return when his "audit" was over??? Where's the transparency??? :confused5
Feh! Where was your values-signalling cry for transparency when Barack Hussein Obama was using US Taxpayer dollars to fund terrorism?

Such hypocrisy is indeed transparent!

Every president since Nixon has released their tax return. The reason Nixon did so (and this tradition began) was to provide transparency and quell questions that existed as to whether he had violated the tax code, and if so could the IRS be trusted to investigate a person independently when that person was their boss. Such transparency has been instrumental for persons in power to quickly quiet questions for ethics violations, or in this case a violation of the emoluments clause of the constitution. While no law requires trump to release his returns, there is no law that prevents his doing so... something trump has stated on numerous occasions. The problem is that by refusing to provide transparency, trump provides ammunition for his opponents to attack as they are now doing. Has trump violated the emoluments clause? Perhaps not, but a more savvy politician wouldn't allow such claims to grow to the distractions they obviously are. In this case, trump has created the conditions for his own misery.... but that may well define his entire presidency so far.
Let's see, Trump has doubled this country's GDP already. Obama doubled this country's debt.

I want to see Barack Hussein Obama's college transcripts.
