White House Leakers Torment Trump Behind the Scenes: “A Very Dangerous Thing For This Country”

    Editor’s Comment: A new drama is unfolding at the White House – it seems that embittered holdovers inside the president’s office and close to his quarters are determined to out the questionable behavior and gaffes from his early administration. An angry President Trump has already blasted moles inside his White House for leaking reports about his angry calls with the presidents of Australia and Mexico, as well as a series of anonymous tweets from a group of self-professed leakers.

    While opposition to a new presidential regime naturally draws hyperbolic criticism from the opposing party, these leakers claim this is like no administration before in American history – right now, these people are claiming to expose an out of control leader before it is too late. If so, will they uncover anything substantial? What will become of the presidency, and the nation under its rule?

    “In 26 Years, I’ve Never Seen Anything Like This” White House Leaks Reportedly Reveal Trump Team Turmoil

    by Tyler Durden

    Trump’s volatile behavior has created an environment ripe for leaks from his executive agencies and even within his White House, according to The Huffington Post. And while leaks typically involve staffers sabotaging each other to improve their own standing or trying to scuttle policy ideas they find genuinely problematic, Trump’s 2-week-old administration has a third category: leaks from White House and agency officials alarmed by the president’s conduct.

    For Americans who based their impression of Trump on the competent and decisive tycoon he portrayed on his “Apprentice” TV reality shows, the portrait from these and many other tidbits emerging from his administration may seem a shock: an impulsive, sometimes petty chief executive more concerned with the adulation of the nation than the details of his own policies ? and quick to assign blame when things do not go his way.

    “I’ve been in this town for 26 years. I have never seen anything like this,” said Eliot Cohen, a senior State Department official under President George W. Bush and a member of his National Security Council. “I genuinely do not think this is a mentally healthy president.”

    There is the matter of Trump’s briefing materials, for example. The commander in chief doesn’t like to read long memos, a White House aide who asked to remain unnamed told The Huffington Post. So preferably they must be no more than a single page. They must have bullet points but not more than nine per page.

    Small things can provide him great joy or generate intense irritation. Trump told The New York Times that he’s fascinated with the phone system inside the White House. At the same time, he’s registered a complaint about the hand towels aboard Air Force One, the White House aide said, because they are not soft enough.

    He’s been particularly obsessed with the performance of his aides on cable television.

    Notably, HuffPo admits…

    Information about Trump’s personal interactions and the inner workings of his administration has come to HuffPost from individuals in executive agencies and in the White House itself. They spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of losing their jobs.

    While some of the leaks are based on opposition to his policies – the travel ban on all refugees and on visitors from seven predominantly Muslim nations, for instance – many appear motivated by a belief that Trump’s words, deeds and tweets pose a genuine threat.

    The New York Times, meanwhile, painted a portrait of a brooding commander in chief, wandering the White House alone in a bathrobe at night, watching too much cable television and venting his frustrations through angry tweets.

    “I think it’s a cry for help,” said Elizabeth Rosenberg, a counterterrorism expert at the Treasury Department under Obama.

    She said many staffers still working in the national security agencies under Trump see what’s happening and are driven by a simple motive: “Incredulity, and the need to share it.”

    However, Daily Caller’s Kerry Picket reports that President Donald Trump pointed the finger at Obama administration holdovers at the White House and National Security Council for leaking information about private phone conversations he had with leaders of Australia and Mexico.

    “It’s a disgrace that they leaked because it’s very much against our country,” Trump told Fox News Sunday, accusing “Obama people” in civil service positions for the leaks.

    “It’s a very dangerous thing for this country,” he added noting that these individuals were still being sought out and replaced.

    Trump described the media stories of what seemed to be contentious interactions between him and the two foreign leaders as misreported, and contended that he actually had “positive” conversations with both men.

    Leaks relating to the new White House have gone to mainstream media outlets that Trump has blasted in the past for treating him unfairly including: the New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC and the Associated Press.

    Ron Kaufman, who worked in George H.W. Bush’s White House in the late 1980s and early 1990s, argued that the Trump administration’s leaks are par for the course for a young administration. “There’s always leaks,” Kaufman said. “Every president in history has said the press hates me and there’s too many leaks.”

      1. The Trumpster needs to do some more purging and be extra careful about what he blurts out of his cake hole. He may have good intentions but he looks like an amateur sometimes.
        OPSEC Mr. President, OPSEC.

        • The scum obama’s mess will not be cleaned up quickly. He shit everywhere and on everyone.

          • Hilarious so truth!

            • Trump is draing the Obama Swamp and they don’t like it so the holdovers retailiate with leaks. I wpuld FIRE half of the Government slobs and useless POS deadwood. There is a huge difference in motivation for success comparing the Private Sector business people and useless hanger oners with lifetime government paper shufflers who have no motivation to accomplish much of anything besides hold on to their jobs and vacation time off. Trump has done more in 2 weeks to help America than Obama did in 8 years.

              We support you Pres Trump 100%. Keep Draining the swamp.

              • Yep–Trump being backstabbed by holdovers named “Cohen”, “Rosenberg” and “Kaufman”…go figure. Sounds like a 5th generation Jewish law firm……..

          • I am GLAD there is turmoil in the whithouse, the “BUSINESS AS USUAL” has F—–G is what has KILLED this country, and Trump is NOT a wossie like obutthead and so IF there was NOT turmoil going on i would be VERY afraid!! sooooo the more turmoil we see there means the more Trump is rocking there BOAT!!!

          • The USA has been destroyed for the last 8 years and not a peep out of anyone.

            I think its time for the real red blooded Americans to correct this problem.

            • hey hes a smart man,we already seen how hes a patient man and looks like hes a true American in ways and eyes of the people ,with all the false flags and twisted ways NWO trying to screw him up no wonder he getting upset bunch of two faces demo.i never seen this kind of crap they dragging in one right after another and that guy that’s just shocked was with bush ad. right? lol I rest my case,and starting to look like our President Mr. Trump might need some help, hope our President Mr. Trump doesn’t call on we the people to take a walk to the Whitehouse and to start spring cleaning early call home the ones holding us back so our President can go to work to fix all that last 4 presidents screwed up don’t make us stand and come up there……wake the sleeping giant ooooh they don’t want that,

          • Feel the same way. I’ve got no real love or respect for the new militarized police officers. I’ve got friends that are old school cops and they don’t care much either for the bald headed sunglasses wearing, militarized cops either. My cop friends (a sergeant and a detective) have told me that the new cops adopt the look to appear intimidating. They also told me to be very, very careful if ever approached by one. Law abiding citizens do not need to be intimidated and the lawless should be intimidated by the uniform, badge & gun alone. I understand they’ve got a rough job and all that but at the same time they should learn how to recognize a law abiding citizen and afford them the respect they should. It isn’t all cops but man there are some that have no business at all doing what they are doing. And yes I do support the police. Enough that I don’t refer to them as pigs. They just need to cut the hard ass military approach unless when having to deal with a real jack a$$.

            • DH, welcome and I agree. I’ve got 3 retired old school cops in my family who say the same thing. Not all of today’s cops go along with the militarization crap but yes, you still have to be aware. Nowadays when you have to fear cops as much as you do real criminals then something is definitely wrong with LE.

        • fire the lot immediately.

        • I would put lots and lots of money down on President Trump already working overtime to flush out all the moles in Washington. Of course when discovered they’ll suffer Trump’s unique form of dismissal and punishment. President Trump aside from getting things done, gets revenge. When discovered every mole will have their name and face plastered across all the new main stream media. I can’t picture Trump as being a man who would tolerate deceit, deception and treachery for long. By now I suspect he knows who he can trust and who needs a one way bus ticket back to wherever in hell they came from.

      2. I was going to say, there was something fishy going on with your server this AM. Slow loading or not loading at all. Thx. Glad you got a handle on it. DOD denial of service sometimes attacks a website by bombarding it with massive traffic which can lock up the server. I hope you back up all your past History and working articles on multiple hard drives in case you need to restore the site. Wondering if you were being targeting? You can look up the IP addys, where the massive traffic was coming from. They Hate Free Speech. We love free speech. USA USA USA!!!! lol

        • Z, thanks for your concern. This was definitely related to a traffic spike. DrudgeReport.com gave us a lot of love this morning and our firewall couldn’t handle it. We had to completely rewire the hardware and install a new wall with additional connections. Should be good to go going forward ( I hope).

          We have several security protocols in place that I would rather not go into detail about, but ddos protection is definitely something we have taken into account. Remote data protection is also in place. Of course, you never know how good those protocols are until you need them, though we have tested several possibilities so hopefully we can recover from a serious attack, especially As it relates to our databases ( articles, comments, etc)



          • Yep Mac, I meant DoS Denial of Service. A big spike in traffic overload can take it down. Good luck. Yeah I mentioned back ups, cause a Gun Shop in my area had their entire website taken down and they lost everything for the last several years of hundreds of videos, and all sorts of info on their entire website. They took down their server and a in-house backup. So. Multiple backups. Those friggin virus worms can bore holes into steal.

            There was one Superbowl commercial that put their web address on the commercial and it was reported that the site crashed due to overload in traffic. Could be those PO’s lefties in mommas basements with nothing to do all day but hack attack.

            Maybe the Russians Hacked ya.. lol

            **And Preppers, please go out and buy several large capacity USB Memory sticks and drop in the save box all your Prepper Folders of info/ music/ photos/ financial data, etc, and store these backups in various places not in the same buildings. I had another friend who did not back up and they lost their entire business data due to a crashed hard drive. Including he lost their data base of customers. Try unraveling that. He ended up just shutting down the company. So this is a Huge Deal. Stay safe everybody.

            • But Z, PropOrNot says we are a Russian propaganda website — why would Putin do us like that? 🙂

            • They don’t make those memory sticks large enough to hold my files. Anyway, I’ve studied the backup problem and read a lot on the internet about it. The consensus is that for large amounts of data, the best you can do is have multiple standard hard drives for backups. That’s what I do for my many terabytes of data (currently more than 30TB, lots of video and audio).

              Also, I do have my most crucial files backed up on memory sticks in various locations.

              I have important files that aren’t possible OPSEC problems backed up in a hidey hole deep in the directories of one of my websites so no one can accidentally stumble on them. That way another company with multiple locations in other states is also backing up my data.

          • yesterday investmentwatchblog had been down over 24 hours too.

        • I’m thinking there is something odd happening in many areas of the web. On Tues afternoon when I was teleworking, I began having problems with the internet. To check, I looked Google maps traffic. It didn’t show traffic so I checked my phone and no traffic there either so it wasn’t something with servers at the office.

          On Wednesday at the office, we experienced various sorts of internal and external problems including even our internal chat service.

          Today, teleworking again, I had problems establishing certain connections although accessing the internet appeared okay.

          It all seems like a generalized DDoS but it doesn’t affect everything the same way. A Whack-a-Mole worm maybe? Just grasping straws here.

      3. I would plant some BS info to various people and see who is leaking what. Time to stuff some Plug and Dyke down the throats of the babblers.

        • Exactly, plus look at the highlighted media sources……use hitlery urine to draw them to the snare!

          • 2% of the population…. 100% of the sources in this story

        • Zeus, I think the part about Trump being mentally unstable is pure libturd BS. The MSM used to say that about him BEFORE he announced his decision to run for POTUS. I do believe the part about the leaks. ZeroHedge must’ve had a slow news day and copied something from CNN.

          • D.B.
            Trump being mentally unstable is pure libturd BS. I agree 1000% He isn’t P.C. and they don’t like it. F@#k the P.C. B.S. no more no Frigging more.


      4. For the most part … I like what Trump has been doing.
        The only thing I object at the moment is the way he is talking about China & Iran.

        Currently, there is a war game exercise going on in the Gulf 50 miles off the coast of Iran. Not a smart move … if the roles were reversed, how would the US GOV. feel?

        China has sent numerous military ships into the south china sea to protect their man-made islands.

        The smell of World War is still very much upon us.

        Old boss, meet new boss – the war machine theatrics must continue – It’s what US/NWO/Israeli Foreign Policy is all about – business.

        • The reason China & Iran are doing the threatening things is because for too long the US leadership didn’t have the guts to tell them not to. So they lost a lot of respect for the US and believed they could walk all over us. Well they could until now. President Trump has to come off as a real harda$$ that absolutely will not back down in fear. It’s a dangerous game that every bully on every block plays to establish the pecking order. Its been going on for years. Each pushes the other to see who runs and who doesn’t. For 8 years obama not only ran but he fled to his closet, wrapped himself in his big boy blanky and shivered in fear hoping the bad man would just go away. It is going to take a lot of threats and blustering to undue the perception that all bullies have of the US after 8 years of US leadership bed wetting.

      5. I’m surprised that zero hedge would take any information from the Huffington Post and support its’ findings. Suddenly, zero hedge has dropped many points on my respect meter.

        • Stonecold, ZeroHedge took this article from Huffpost? Man, that’s WORSE than CNN!

          • Was thinking the same thing. The author must be living in a cave to quote the trash that comes out of the snowflake village that is Huffington Post. Left wing propaganda spewing fake news.

      6. The deep state is dug in deeper than an Alabama tick.

        • But Trump is making it too easy but running his yap and appearing to be a moron. Shut up, stop trying to go after everything said and play the long game.

      7. Trump needs to be a President. In charge. In control. Both those begin with himself. If he must do the personally unthinkable and realize that he currently is exhibiting neither state of being, so be it. It all begins with his realization of what the office he holds is and his role in conducting the affairs of that same office. He is NOT a celebrity as he was on his television show. He is NOT a businessman as he was before. He is President of the United States of America. There is no room for ego in that job. He is there to serve the people of this nation, not himself. He now has over 310,000,000 ‘bosses’. Once he gets it straight, focuses on what is the truth and true status of this country rather than his preconceptions he may just do all right. But it all begins with him and understanding reality. Once he ‘gets it’, he can (and should’ve already) cleared out all vestiges of the previous administration from the lowest telephone operator and on to include all others. Working top to bottom within all agencies to rid this country of those same individuals who are now promoting this ‘leak’ damage.

        • and MORE than half of those bosses STILL support him…..don’t forget that…..he’s EXACTLY what i thought i voted for……so far.

          • bcofd – I support him. By hoping he wakes up and can learn to let words slide off him when need be, to let valid criticism be heard by him as is also needed, to work for success for the nation over any idea of personal success. I voted for him. He is doing okay – just okay. But to win, something he says he wants to do, he must use tactics to ensure victory. Not be pulled in this direction or another by all his detractors. When I call for him to embrace reality, I mean that he must fully accept that to lose is not just a drop in ratings of some television show or the loss of property or a business – no. It would be loss of this country.

        • I agree with you Heartless,but one thing I think he needs to do is get tough with those commies that inhabit the “legal system” and just tell those commie judges to kiss his butt and do what is right for the country.Obutthole did it and not a word was uttered against him, so what if Trump does it? I fought the commie bastards in Viet Nam “to keep from fighting them over here”and look what it got us,the whole country infested with the bastards,now I guess I can fight them over here and go home for lunch.

        • I have worked on a number of government transitions around the world. The first thing of utmost importance is the ‘assertion’: everyone needs to know there is a new boss in town and you should, as much as you can, clear out all the d-bags from the previous gang. For those that remain, you introduce a completely new culture and way of doing things. They either get in line or they are gone.

          Then you need quick wins: you came in on an agenda so people want to see things happening on that; it doesn’t have to be earth shattering, just show that you are starting to make changes. Trump has failed to do the following and it is hurting him:

          1) Shut down Obama: there is no way I would have let him move into a house down the street and set up his ‘alternative’ presidency. I would also stop him from doing those ‘gay boy’ action photo shoots for at least a couple of years.

          2) Hillary is such a rancid character and the FBI etc. have intercepts and evidence up the wha-zoo to prosecute her: why hesitate and let her dance around making women’s march pronouncements?

          3) Muslims and radical Muslims: They are taking the piss as the English say. You need to throw so much fear up them they go quiet: no more airport demos etc. They shut up after 9/11 and that was because we took the right measures. Most Muslims kept their heads down because they knew if they said or did the wrong thing, they would be blocked from flights, kicked out of the country, or rendered and never seen again. Trump has allowed a pip-squeak Muslim mayor in London to threaten to break up the Atlantic Alliance on a whim. Sorry, but it takes a set of titanium nuts to be able to go toe-to-toe with weasels like that and you need to shut down weasels fast. Basically, Trump is facing being blocked from visiting America’s ‘special friend’ because of some prominent Muslim politicians in the UK who want to see the Atlantic Alliance ended as well as the EU ended because… they want to bring in sharia law and it is much easier if Europe’s countries are picked off one by one.

      8. Trump to Democrats.

        I was crazy when I got here, But I’m All Right Now!


      9. I wish adults would act like adults instead of acting like jealous children. They are teaching the youth of this country how to be immature adults. First President I have ever seen that has been mistreated, not respected and actually treated mean. Grown men and women are showing bad behavior. If the law is broken then they should act. If a problem, speak as a mature adult. He is a fighter and that is what we need.

        • i’m just glad they are showing him/U.S. their true colors….we WON’T forget!

      10. And we didn’t have any “concern” from these idiots the whole time Obama was in office? bush? I don’t remember seeing all sorts of leaks like this with Clinton. clean them all out. they don’t need to worry about being found out, they need to be out. Snowden didn’t hide. Assange isn’t hiding. the fruit loop manning didn’t hide. a bunch of bureaucrat-turned-patriots, all of a sudden, but afraid to loose their jobs? drain them all. If there is a good egg in the bunch it shouldn’t have any trouble finding a real job.

      11. Give one shrivel of a reason why anyone with an intelligence level greater than that of a preschooler should give any credibility to information reported by Huffpo and the New York Times? Zero Hedge AND this site should know better than to perpetuate anything from fake news sites!

        • Good comment. I was going to say the same thing concerning HuffPo and NYT, but your comment is spot on.

          • YUUUUUP!

      12. Too many Demoprats left in the White House. Fire them all and run with out them until you can replace them.

        • Trump has made a big mistake keeping on any Obama appointed people, they should all be fired, now!
          He should also hire someone give them one directive, “search out all disloyal government workers and terminate, transfer them to obnoxious locations, or give them cause to retire( eg. assign them an office located in the mens toilet)”.

          • rellik

            Agreed. Fire all those Democrats. Don’t trust them at all. They are Commie’s.

        • Sgt. Dale, Got the bumpski and it is well made. Problem is in order to install it I have to replace some parts on my tool with usa parts. Check out atf 922 rules. I have a thumbhole stock and it requires a pistol grip to use. Always something grrrrr.

          • What are the parts that need to be replaced to be 922r compliant?

            (1) Frames, receivers, receiver castings, forgings or
            (2) Barrels
            (3) Mounting blocks (trunions)
            (4)*Muzzle attachments
            (5) Bolts
            (6) Bolt carriers
            (7) Gas pistons
            (8) Triggers
            (9) Hammers
            (10) Disconnectors
            (11) Buttstocks
            (12) Pistol grips
            (13) Forearm handguards
            (14) Magazine body
            (15) Followers
            (16) Floorplates

            An gun can contain no more that 10 “imported” parts.

            The floorplate and follower count as one part each. Both handguards count as 1 part, the pistol grip counts as 1, as well as the stock is 1. By replacing the FCG with an American made version this counts as 3 parts replacement.

            • “G”
              Thanks for the INFO Greatly appreciated. My RPK has a conventional AK pistol grip stock so I think I’m OK there.

            • Oh for gods sake just put on the stock and shoot it!

              This though is why you make your own/no registers/ffl’s ect.,fold some metal,a few spot welds and holes drilled,then order barrel ect, and have a ak!They do also make a milled receiver version,plenty of AK’s also made in completion in US

              • I have a milled receiver and fed prison is not appealing. Thanks though.

                • Buy a trigger group set up and stash it,easy peasy!
                  Maniac out

                • Again,why you make your own,tis legal and in official books does not exist.

                  • Because all I need to replace is the stock (bumpski usa, pistol grip usa, trigger group usa, and I’m good. I have the bumpski so all I need to spend is about 100 bux. Simulated full auto is bound to attract attention, best to be legal.

          • Genius, I don’t even care about ATF anything.

      13. Just wait till the team is in place there will be thousands of government employees getting a big You’re Fired. Some may even be brought up on criminal charges!! It takes a special kind of stupid to sign a memorandum of no confidence on your new boss after just a few days. I hope all 900 of the DOS loose their jobs.

        • Trump is a powerful Man. He stopped all Global Warming with a stroke of the pen. It even completely disappeared off the WH Website just using the master delete button.

          The Global Warming Hoax was a Lefty Idea to destroy Capitalism. And to raise more Tax Revenue for the freeshit army of deadbeats, for election votes going to Dems.

          Imagine the Leftys all sitting around whimpering that 2 decades of Global Warming Hoax Scam nicinigrated within just 1 week. ALT/ Delete, poof gone!!

      14. Remember… in the world of the left, there are no absolutes. Thus, only POWER exists. Thus, any duplicity, and lies, any killing (witness the 100 MILLION murdered last century, per the Black Book of Communism, Oxford Univ. Press), any ANYTHING is permissible.

        There are some people who have actually, by their own volition, become sub-human in their lust for power and willingness to use evil to achieve any end. You just read about them above. To allow these types to gain/retain power means that not only your rights, but your essential humanity, will be void. Some are not evil, just “useful idiots” (per Lenin). Think the Hollywierd Learjet leftists, the lamestream media, etc. And they are too utterly stupid to realize that should pure communism come in to play, they, too, will be marched off just like Lavrentiy Beria in the USSR, or General Arnaldo Ochoa in Cuba. What? You don’t know who they are? Have your leftist “useful idiots” show some intellectual honesty just for once, and google them.

        “I know the campesinos (peasants) support us now. But when we come to power, they, too, will have to be liquidated.”
        – Che Guevara on the equivalent of today’s idiot Che t-shirt campus leftists who would be the first to be marched off – or in this case, be left with a $1 trillion dollar debt so that their lives are permanently destroyed.

        Can ANYONE be so utterly ignorant???

      15. People seem to be expecting more out ot Trump in a few weeks than has been expected of any other President during their entire administration.

        This is spite of meeting more resistance within government and even his own party than has ever been seen before.

        No wonder the leftists and globalists are winning, Trump has no support from those that should be supporting him and on top of that they are willing to believe anything and everything his enemies tell them about him to put him in a negative light.

      16. I have a very useful exercise for figuring out who is trustable and who is not in my life. I leak out a little disinformation to a specific individual asking them to keep it quiet, and see how far it goes. Really good news like you’ve won a small lottery? then, watch the fur fly around you.
        Maybe Trump is ferreting out leakers. Just sayin-

        • ….nothing says it better!

      17. I’m just glad that everything is going along smoothly and there appears nothing to be concerned about. Whew! Besides I sold all my guns and ammo to pay to have all the moles removed from my back. I gonna keep all the ones that they clip off and send them to Hillary on Valentines Day to express to her my undying love.

      18. This is early in the game. Many of President Trump’s appointments have not yet been accepted and it must be difficult. Obama’s staff is still there. These people do not want America to be great. They want a Marxist failed State and Global Communism with themselves as the privileged elite. Trump is not a Marxist. He cares about Americans, even the white Europeans.

        COHEN, Kaufman, and Rosenburg: are they all Russian? No. They are all (((them guys))).

        I wonder how Them Guys is doing. He hasn’t posted for a while.


      19. If dude has been in town for 26 years and never seen anything like this I say he is lying. He’s seen worse.

      20. Eliot Cohan is a Jew. 2000 plus years ago he would be paying people to yell Crusify him! O wait that’s exactly what the children of Satan are doing today. Paying protesters to yell. Crusify him.

        • All four of the (((sources))) quoted in this story are

      21. Is this considered treason??? PLEASE let it be so trump can take them out back!!!

      22. We solved who was giving out internal legal advice by passing out a document with one, two, or three words in key phrases being different in each copy given out. When a transcription turned up on a website, we knew who did it.

        • Good Job Smokey!! ☺ I like clever and cunning. Keep sharing your info.

          Ever see internal pdf info files that cannot be printed out or includes codes embedded within the text? I think they also leave bread crumbs if you forward the file on.

          I’ve signed and agreed to non disclosure agreements before with ramifications for violations.

      23. Is this considered treason?? PLEASE ….PLEASE say yes so trump can take them out back!!!!

      24. I went on RT and read foreign section in Russian and German. Somehow RT have tweet feeds of Hillary’s Staff at SOS office.
        Heck, that bunch need firing because they do nothing! What a tax payer waste of DOLLARS, not to mention what was said. But Most just BS stuff from NON-Working Sellouts! Those people are arrogant self entitled Liberals and need firing! I was so pissed off! What a waste!
        Also it was funny Russians Bashed Merkle!

        Maybe I should apply!

      25. The crazy left progressives continue baiting people in the same ways Obama did for eight years.

        Periodically their agenda leaked and it was revealed they believed they could get conservatives to lash out violently. How could so many millions of Americans own so many guns and not go on killing sprees? Then they’d use these violent outbursts to condemn conservatives and take more power.

        Their logic never worked, the violence they hoped to manipulate people into committing never occurred. Even after repeated failures that indicate a complete failure to understand anything about conservative Americans, the left just keep on trying the same stuff over and over expecting entirely different results.

        If only the left can piss off more conservatives, surely they can motivate even one to violence. The media and Hillary/Obama operatives are still running the same playbook.

      26. Oh no!! This new president is walking the halls at night vs. the former (p)resident having blow jobs and trists with gays late at night.

      27. B from CA… I was just thinking about Them Guys myself earlier. I guess he got tired of the push back of what he was saying. I thought the control of the internet was handed over to China. More free speech restriction looming on the horizon. It is quite troubling that anybody could hold such power so as to block all criticism publicly. Like black magic.

      28. Get rid of Prevus(SP?) he’s the one, back stabbing SOB

      29. Ha, TRUMP is Winning! So are Americans! Even the people of EUROPE want the FREEDOM for EU Globalist. Did you see that story. 10,000 people in 10 countries want their country back.
        The EU Elites are put in check. Oh that shame of it that people actually want their country back.

        Law and Order soon to return. Some Law Breakers running around Atlanta random shooting rifles near daycare’s and apartments. Got Locals hopping. Pray for Law Enforcement it looks like they are on front lines.

      30. “I genuinely do not think this is a mentally healthy President.”

        SAY WHAT? REALLY??? WTF?????

        Consider Dr. M. Scott Peck’s oft-cited, much quoted definition,


        Listen buster, THIS President IS dedicated to reality at all costs: the reality that ISIS has chopped off the heads of little Christian boys and girls and their parents; the reality that the last President basked in the glorification of everything that is RADICAL Islam; the reality that our country is a JUDEO-CHRISTIAN nation and NOT a “Muslim nation” as the LAST President often arrogantly proclaimed; the reality that there was nothing fundamentally wrong with the immigrantion system by which my grandparents came to this country. And I could go on and on.

        But some people can’t HANDLE the truth, so they VIOLENTLY protest, they LIE, they make FALSE accusations.

        The former President engaged in 8 years of destructive actions and policies and THIS President tells the TRUTH about that and is labeled mentally ill because unlike several former Commanders in Chief THIS particular President is NOT allergic to the truth?

        One person who speaks the truth constitutes a majority of one. (Thoreau)

        Truth needs to be repeated as long as there are men who disbelieve it. (Gandhi)

        When you speak the truth, when you witness to the truth, when you live in the truth, and when you renew your commitment to the truth each moment of your existence, you unleash an energy that is SO potent it is literally undescribable.

        But if you want to quash that energy then engage in name-calling, judgementalness of people (as opposed to their behavior), and use as much vile and destructive language as you wish. But you will become part of the destructiveness of which lies are a part. As Dr. Peck wrote, “evil is that which destroys” and “evil is anything that is oppositional to the life force”.

        Be careful if you speak and witness to the truth because you will encounter incredible opposition. And take great care NOT to utiize truth as a hammer because you could do much damage and harm. Always speak the truth in kindness. Remember truth is the force Christ, Thoreau, Gandhi, King, and countless “nameless” others have used to humanize literally the world and paid dearly for that.

        And yes, at times PART of kindly expressing the truth IS directness, and it is THAT directness that voters responded to by electing a candidate who had the audacity to speak the truth again and again and again.

        Hence all this petty and cowardly opposition from whose who know nothing of EFFECTIVE protest. EFFECTIVE protest utilizes the truth. The protests we have seen on the streets and in mainstream press are fueled by and filled with lies.

        Time is short. Evil abounds in the world. But it has already been conquered. Don’t get sucked up into it in any way, shape, or form because it cost you eternity in heaven. And eternity is forever!

        God bless you all.

        • What a GREAT post, Lone Ranger. Thanks.

        • LR, this Cohen dude is the epitome of evil. So…. something is “normal” because it has been going on a long time? To wit: “I’ve been in this town for 26 years. I have never seen anything like this,” said Eliot Cohen, a senior State Department official…”

          Gee, then maybe it’s time to THROW THIS BUM OUT if this nuttiness has become “normal.” Make him get a REAL job, and quit living off the government teat. This guy needs to quit creating wars in Libya and Syria, and killing tens of thousands, which, presumably, he considers “normal.”

          I’ll bet King George in 1776 said the same thing as this Cohen dude.

          It is hard to countenance people like this. If these people are senior advisors setting world policy, we are in a very bad place.

          I really appreciate your encouragement, LR, where you noted “Don’t get sucked up into it in any way, shape, or form because it cost you eternity in heaven.” It is very easy to get overcome by all filth in the worl. We are all imperfect, as Solzhenitsyn wrote (the line between good and evil runs through each of our own individual hearts) but the amoral left seem to be leading the pack in regards to institutionalizing evil).

      31. As everyone here knows I hate corporations. The right has chick fil a the left has Starbucks and there is more I just can’t name. Point being it’s never been more important where your$ goes. If you buy from pro gay businesses your$ goes to that cause. If you buy Israeli products your $ is used against its enemies. We are all victims of corporate politics. The only way to resist all of this is to live like a caveman while taking a paycheck and hoarding that$ not buying products or services. You have to resist the advertising tactics designed to part you from your$. Even the prepping movement works to take your hard earned $. Your $ has power you have the power to hoard it too.

      32. It would be hilarious if President Trump were to ‘set up’ the leakers with a false story. After an official call to another Head of State has ended, Trump stays on the phone talking like the other party is still listening. Then he discloses the negotiations with the Extraterrestrial Beings and how HAARP was used to control the weather.

        The leakers would lose their credibility and never be heard from again.

      33. NOTHING matters to the amoral left except p-o-w-e-r.

        And what is that power FOR? Ultimately, self-aggrandizement. A fictional little anecdote is not far off from the truth:

        The story goes Leonid Brezhnev had his ancient grandmother visit him at his office in Moscow when he was leader of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Brezhnev proudly showed her his many Zil limousines – all left running for whenever his whims demanded – the Italian marble floors in his private bathroom, the gold plated handles on his mahogany desk, all his dachas, his multiple fine silk suites in his closets, and much, much more.
        Finally, the end of the day came, and all the assistants, servants and aides went home. After everyone had left, the aged grandmother looked around very, very carefully, then sidled up as close as she possibly could to her grandson and whispered very, very quietly in his ear:

        “This is all very well, Leonid. But… WHAT IF THE COMMUNISTS COME!!???”

        Of course, today we would apply this same story to all the Hollywood Learjet leftists, Michelle-Marie Antoinette Obama and her monthly uber-vacations, the John Kerrys with their mega-yachts, the Nancy Pelosis who increase their net worth by tens of millions while in office, Tom Hanks who bought THE largest house in LA in 2010, zillionaire George Soros, the late Maurice Strong who has now gone to his un-reward, etc.

      34. ““I’ve been in this town for 26 years. I have never seen anything like this,” said Eliot Cohen, a senior State Department official under President George W. Bush and a member of his National Security Council. “I genuinely do not think this is a mentally healthy president.”

        NO, Mr. Cohen. YOU are mentally unstable, and YOU and your ilk have co-opted the Constitution for the past few decades. Your idiot comment is the same as some Nazi name Otto saying in 1944 “I have been in the government for a dozen years, and I have never seen anything like it”; or Vladimir in the USSR saying the same thing, only now it is 70 years. No, Otto and Vlad, your vile, disgusting governments are still vile and disgusting – it’s just been in control of evil people too long.

        And it is ABOUT TIME you DO see something different.

      35. I did a straw pole of friends, waitresses, acquaintances etc. and Trump was either not coming across well at all, or, they actually thought Obama was still the President, or, that he would return shortly to be President again after his little ‘gay romp’ on Necker Island.

        Nobody could name a single accomplishment so far for Trump. All they could see was chaos and obstruction.

        This could prove politically fatal for Trump. It takes some serious guile and leadership to get the government to do things and follow your orders. Fail to show that at the start, and you will have most of the government just ignoring you and doing whatever they want.

        I would say Trump is facing a catastrophic political failure just weeks into becoming President. And it looks like the campaign against his family businesses is also going to take down his wealth. He will, I am afraid, be a broken man with the Trump empire dissolved in a sea of bankruptcies, with Ivanka the first to fall.

      36. A lot of Neo-cahn names and tribal sources in that zero hedge piece. They would lie or distort much, would they?

        • 2% of the population…. 100% of the sources in this story

      37. I think many people have been a leach o the American public for so long than anyone who threatens your sugar tit is off base —- When it is really YOU that is off !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      38. The employees in the State Department and EPA have already said they’re using encryption apps on their phones and said they were going to buy a burner phone in order to tell the MSM what POTUS Trump was up to, and to watch for anything illegal that he might do. I’d like to know why they weren’t this avid about reporting Hitlary and her illegal activities. It does not make someone mentally unbalanced because they disagree with you, or may have eccentricities. Some of the most brilliant people in history were eccentric. This is just another ploy toward impeachment of President Trump. If you will recall the Democrat Howard Dean and his erratic behavior when he was running for president; that was some questionable behavior. And let’s not forget Hitlary’s temper tantrums that the MSM didn’t report. POTUS needs to drain the swamp, and only have about 3 to 4 really close people he can trust explicitly. President Trump needs to concentrate on only important issues of this country. Ivanka is a grown woman and is smart enough to defend herself, he needn’t worry about her. President needs to get on with draining the swamp.

      39. I had a younger cousin who crapped his diaper and smeared the contents on the wall. The Hussein holdovers are doing the same thing. Mr. T must fumigate.

      40. Here’s the latest…
        It’s coming out that Obama hired over 100 new WH staffers during his last weeks in office, people who applied to work for Hillary.
        They are leaking information to the media, culling emails from conservative on whitehouse.gov, and creating havoc wherever they can.

        President Trump needs to review the list of Hillary-hirees, and fire every damn one of them.
        My opinion…..

      41. “Tyler Durden”, the schizophrenic in “The Fight Club” movie, is probably the best pseudonym for authoring this amalgamation of “leaks”.

      42. Why in this world would anyone want a president to fail? Does the left know how bad they make America look. I say enough is enough. U need to sit back and take good long look at Obama record. U r acting like a bunch of kindergarten kids. Let president Trump have a chance…I don’t believe anything CNN has to say or the left. Stop acting like babies. U want protected and when the police r given more rights then u r for the criminal. Wake up..

      43. Yeh, they would think he wasn’t a mentally healthy president because he is unafraid of torpedoing the useless gov slobs that cow-tow to the NWO masters. He won’t dance on the end of their strings, and the wonk don’t like it that he is doing things for the country instead of the establishment status quo.

      44. Consider the sources, disregard, carry on.
