From pandering to Putin to abusing allies and ignoring his own advisers, Trump’s phone calls alarm US officials

Filed under: Criminal, Economics, Fascism, Gender, Greed, Hate, Health, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 05:31

https://edition.cnn.com/2020/06/29/politics/trump-phone-calls-national-security-concerns/

In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America’s principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials — including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff — that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House and intelligence officials intimately familiar with the contents of the conversations.

 

The calls caused former top Trump deputies — including national security advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly, as well as intelligence officials — to conclude that the President was often “delusional,” as two sources put it, in his dealings with foreign leaders. The sources said there was little evidence that the President became more skillful or competent in his telephone conversations with most heads of state over time. Rather, he continued to believe that he could either charm, jawbone or bully almost any foreign leader into capitulating to his will, and often pursued goals more attuned to his own agenda than what many of his senior advisers considered the national interest.
These officials’ concerns about the calls, and particularly Trump’s deference to Putin, take on new resonance with reports the President may have learned in March that Russia had offered the Taliban bounties to kill US troops in Afghanistan — and yet took no action. CNN’s sources said there were calls between Putin and Trump about Trump’s desire to end the American military presence in Afghanistan but they mentioned no discussion of the supposed Taliban bounties.
By far the greatest number of Trump’s telephone discussions with an individual head of state were with Erdogan, who sometimes phoned the White House at least twice a week and was put through directly to the President on standing orders from Trump, according to the sources. Meanwhile, the President regularly bullied and demeaned the leaders of America’s principal allies, especially two women: telling Prime Minister Theresa May of the United Kingdom she was weak and lacked courage; and telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel that she was “stupid.”
Trump incessantly boasted to his fellow heads of state, including Saudi Arabia’s autocratic royal heir Mohammed bin Salman and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, about his own wealth, genius, “great” accomplishments as President, and the “idiocy” of his Oval Office predecessors, according to the sources.
In his conversations with both Putin and Erdogan, Trump took special delight in trashing former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and suggested that dealing directly with him — Trump — would be far more fruitful than during previous administrations. “They didn’t know BS,” he said of Bush and Obama — one of several derisive tropes the sources said he favored when discussing his predecessors with the Turkish and Russian leaders.
There is more information at the link above.  I suspected he would act this way.  What a world, Merkel is high educated with a Phd, and tRump is a loser.   There is a lot of information in the post and shows that tRump is a danger to our national security and the economic recovery of the county.  Here is another example.   Hugs
In his phone exchanges with Putin, the sources reported, the President talked mostly about himself, frequently in over-the-top, self-aggrandizing terms: touting his “unprecedented” success in building the US economy; asserting in derisive language how much smarter and “stronger” he is than “the imbeciles” and “weaklings” who came before him in the presidency (especially Obama); reveling in his experience running the Miss Universe Pageant in Moscow, and obsequiously courting Putin’s admiration and approval. Putin “just outplays” him, said a high-level administration official — comparing the Russian leader to a chess grandmaster and Trump to an occasional player of checkers. While Putin “destabilizes the West,” said this source, the President of the United States “sits there and thinks he can build himself up enough as a businessman and tough guy that Putin will respect him.” (At times, the Putin-Trump conversations sounded like “two guys in a steam bath,” a source added.)

Incel Plotted To Bomb Cheerleaders, Blew Off Own Hand

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Gender, Hate, Health, News, Questions, Reason, Sex — Scottie @ 15:52

Hello Everyone.   I thought about not posting this.   I thought about making it a video as I want to start doing them again.  I am going to post it but add my thoughts.    There is no winner here.   Yes it is great he couldn’t hurt any others as he was planning.   Yes he was injured trying to commit horrible violence on others and he did not seem to care about that.   However a young person clearly unable to deal with reality injured himself and the fact is to me he seems mentally ill.  This seems to me a failure of our society to teach proper understanding of personal interactions, sexual educations, how to mix socially in dating situation, and lastly how to be a decent better person.   We some how have given some of these boys the idea that girls, women, females are property with only one purpose  in life.  Really these boys got graduated out of high school with that attitude towards females?  How badly did society and their community fail these guys.   They should have been identified and give mental health care.  Also the venues of this idea should be better check, better handled, and the people on them better watched.   To me these seem like little kids with a weird obsession and we don’t just ignore it, adults address it.  The weird fixation these guys have on one act of sex is due to the lack of sexual understanding taught in our country.   Any way here is the story and the links.    Hugs

Incel Plotted To Bomb Cheerleaders, Blew Off Own Hand

The New York Post reports:

A sexually frustrated Virginia man blew off a hand while trying to make homemade explosives — ones he planned to use on a revenge attack on “hot cheerleaders,” according to federal prosecutors.

Cole Carini, 23, went to a health clinic in Richlands last Wednesday suffering from an amputated hand, amputated fingers on the opposite hand, and shrapnel wounds to the neck and throat, the Department of Justice said.

He claimed it was from a devastating lawnmower accident — but investigators found his garden overgrown, they say. Instead, they found evidence of a recent explosion, with explosives materials, rusty nails, pipes and pieces of flesh, prosecutors said.

From the Justice Department:

According to court documents, on June 3, 2020, Carini went to a health clinic in Richlands suffering from an amputated hand, amputated fingers on the opposite hand, and shrapnel wounds to the neck and throat. After being interviewed at the hospital by officers, Carini reported that his injuries were caused by a lawn mower accident at his home.

During a search of Carini’s home, agents found the lawn was overgrown and found no other evidence indicating a lawn mower had recently been used. They did, however, find evidence of an explosion, more consistent with the types of injuries Carini had suffered. Agents also discovered significant quantities of what is believed to be Triacetone Triperoxide, an explosive substance used in the creation of improvised explosive devices.

When questioned again, Carini insisted that he was injured when the lawn mower flipped over while he was mowing the grass. The investigation of the case is ongoing and is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Virginia State Police, the Richlands Police Department and the Tazewell County Sheriff’s Office.

PBS finds no support for Tara Reade’s accusations

Filed under: Gender, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Sex — Scottie @ 10:13

The interviews revealed previously unreported details about the Biden office when Reade worked there, such as an account that she lost her job because of her poor performance, not as retaliation for lodging complaints about sexual harassment, as Reade has said.

Other recollections from former staffers corroborated things she has described publicly, such as Biden’s use of the Senate gym and a supervisor admonishing her for dressing inappropriately.

Overall, the people who spoke to the NewsHour described largely positive and gratifying experiences working for Biden, painting a portrait of someone who was ahead of his time in empowering women in the workplace.

None of the people interviewed said that they had experienced sexual harassment, assault or misconduct by Biden. All said they never heard any rumors or allegations of Biden engaging in sexual misconduct, until the recent assault allegation made by Tara Reade.

t’s certain that Biden has made women on his staff uncomfortable at times throughout his whole career, so we might expect that some interpreted it as sexual harassment. Yet, none did.  Instead, they said this:

Female staffers who spent countless hours with Biden, including in one-on-one settings, like his small private office in the U.S. Capitol, known as a “hideaway,” said he never made passes at them or behaved in other ways that suggested sexual impropriety.

The takeaway is that Biden did not exhibit a pattern of behavior that supports Reade’s allegations. If her charges are true, it represented an aberration.

Much more at the link above.   I think this is an important read for everyone interested in the presidential election regardless of party.    Hugs

Sorry media, Biden case isn’t like Kavanaugh’s — Kavanaugh lied about everything

Filed under: Criminal, Gender, History, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Sex — Scottie @ 07:38

https://pressrun.media/p/sorry-media-biden-case-isnt-like

Insisting the two cases are the same, the press wants to portray the Biden story as a case of the #MeToo movement boomeranging on Democrats, revealing them as being two-faced. There’s a huge hole in this comparison. Unlike Kavanaugh, Biden hasn’t lied about almost every facet of the distant claim of sexual assault the way the Republican jurist did. Kavanaugh shattered all precedent and falsified his way through his confirmation hearing, likely perjuring himself in the process.

In order to secure his lifetime appointment to the Court, and facing specific, multiple and credible allegations of sexual assault, Kavanaugh lied about witnesses; he lied about corroboration; he lied about friendships; he lied about parties. He also lied about Maryland’s drinking agevomiting, his yearbook, his accusers, Yale, and drinking — he lied about that a lot. (Separately during his confirmation hearing Kavanaugh lied about his childhoodfederal judges, warrantless wiretaps, his nomination selection, and stolen emails.) “Republicans know Brett Kavanaugh lied under oath,” Armanda Marcotte wrote at Salon. “They just don’t care.”

 

Unlike Kavanaugh, there’s not a single suggestion that Biden has lied, changed his story, or fudged any fact regarding the allegation made against him by Tara Reade. We know that because virtually every major news organization in American is now combing over the story, looking for any tiny piece of evidence that would move the controversy forward and, yes, that would damage the candidate.

There’s also been zero evidence that Biden and his team is trying to cover-up the Reade story. That stands in stark contrast with the White House’s order to the FBI, which forbid the bureau in 2018 from actively interviewing key witnesses, including one person who publicly said he saw Kavanaugh push his penis into the hand of a female student at Yale.

More at the link above.  Well worth the read.   I like the last line “Different press standards for Republicans — again.”    Hugs
