Whoa, the Navy Midshipmen and Army Cadets gave a hell of an ovation to Trump more so than they ever
did to Obama, just saying...

So the White House drives the CIA intel? Isn't that Trump's issue?

In that case that is what happened. You might have a point if the same people back then were in charge of that organization now. I'm betting that isn't the case.

More to the point Trump hasn't had a press conference since he asked the Russians to hack DNC and/or Clinton campaign emails.

Yet Kardashians still supported a candidate requesting a hostile nation interfere in our national election.

Can anyone imagine what would have been said if Obama said the CIA was full of BS to defend communist Russia?
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

So now the WH doesn't drive CIA intel? Assuming Trump called up Putin and said - hey Vlad...I need your help to beat Hillary. Who is responsible to ensure it doesn't happen?

Can you detail what specific point you are trying to make?

Ambassador John Bolton claimed Sunday that hacks during the election season could have been "a false flag" operation — possibly committed by the Obama administration itself.

Shawn then asked Bolton — who has been mentioned as a possible Trump appointment — if he was accusing someone in "the administration or in the intelligence community of" the alleged false flag.

"We just don't know," Bolton said. "But I believe that the intelligence community has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree."

It was Obama all along --:--

OK, now I think I understand. When GOP members do demand or conduct an investigation, they are wasting taxpayer money chasing "faux scandals". But when they don't demand or conduct an investigation, they are idiots. Right?

What an idiot.

You believe a hostile power involving themselves in our election is a faux scandal?

Uh....yeah

Why on Earth would the Obama administration be meddling in the election in order to get Trump elected?

Yeah. What an idiot.

Bolton's comments are the slow normalizing of conspiracy theory politics, just as Trump himself has done. Basically nothing less than undermining public trust in American democracy itself.

And nobody says a goddamn thing.

I fear for our future if this is what is in store.

Meanwhile Putin is laughing his arse off over the chaos he has sown.

Show me a commissioned officer or an academy cadet who would dare to do anything but cheer on the future boss, and you will probably have a short-timer career military officer real early on.

Haha .. "who would dare"?

Thank you for your service as an AF payroll specialist, but you really have no clue what you're talking about Paul so don't even try to speculate on what America's finest think. All of my active duty relatives (9), commissioned and non-comms, including my daughter and niece at USAFA and a majority of her classmates are good with him. I know 8 USAFA graduates all active duty and a whole lot of Midshipmen and Cadets that are onboard with the new POTUS. Did you see the Army-Navy game when he entered the stadium? You should really do your homework. --:--

Why is the support of military personnel more significant than any other American?

I am still puzzled why those in the military support someone who avoided military service when he was capable and available during wartime. Then insulted an individual who was a POW?

Then there is the comment about how some with PTSD are weak.

The only reason I can think of is Stockholm syndrome.

This is like the putziest nationalistic Alt comment you have ever made.

Those are some pretty big, sinister words. Where did you read them?

That might be because you've beat everyone down with your non-stop whining for the last 44 days.

The only way you could know that is if you regularly see him naked.

Maybe it's a personal preference. If I were running for public office, I'd place more value on the support of someone who enlisted in the armed forces to defend this country than I would on a mullet-headed Bubba from Mississippi or a crack whore with ten kids.

I don't know, but they apply. Bolton has insinuated that the intelligence reports are part of an Obama conspiracy against Trump. He has directly impugned the DHS and the CIA.
