"Must find leaker!" is amongst Trump's tweets this morning, along with multiple diversionary accusations / rhetorical questions, attacks on the media.  

 

 

 

 

If he was open and honest, leaks wouldn't be a problem.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Cementing her role as a powerful White House influence, Ivanka Trump is working out of a West Wing office and will get access to classified information, though she is not technically serving as a government employee, according to an attorney for the first daughter.

 

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, said Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information. Gorelick said Ivanka Trump would follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees.

 

 

This is IMO creepy and bizarre - basically giving her this, but she's not an "employee" as she's not getting paid, so not subject to vetting required before being granted access to classified information, evading anti-nepotism laws, evading financial disclosure rules.

 

 

 

Image if Hillary had won and installed Chelsea into the White House with no title and security clearance! Trump, the GOP and their supporters would be going crazy about how inappropriate that was and calling for impeachment, prison, death penalty etc etc etc

Here's some scary insight from journalist Chris Hedges as to where we may be headed - a fascist nationalist superpower state.


I can't disagree with anything he puts forward. A youtube of him speaking on the subject, plus a journalist article in Truthdig.


Youtube  (The Youtube in particular is worth the hour plus viewing time).

These are excellent, thank you.

Straight out of DSM-V. Psychotic incoherence at it's best.

And here I was thinking it was because of nepotism.

Thing is that it doesn't seem to matter what he says or does, the approval rating 40% +/- 3% or so margin of error sticks, and while that continues, nothing's going to change.

 

There's even a whiff of treason in the air, but the faithful believe that's all lies and "further proof" of conspiracy between MSM and the "Deep State" against Trump.

Internship for Ivanka vs Chelsea in 2024.

 

It's already been shown many times that Americans are dumb enough for that to be a thing.

I don't understand the Ivanka vs Chelsea in 2024 bit. Is that a beauty contest or something to do with brains?

Given what Trump said about Ivanka being hot enough to ..., the word "intern" made me think of Monica.
