Most presidents had enough sense to listen to their intelligence agencies. But, as we know, this one has no sense. So, instead of having dozens of professional experts in place driving wedges between Russians and the Chinese, this failure of a man has Fox News morons on his team. And, those people are even more incompetent than him.

America will be doomed if we don't get rid of this imbecile.

WASHINGTON—U.S. intelligence officials warned Tuesday of increased threats to national security from tighter cooperation between China and Russia, while also differing with President Trump in their analysis of North Korea’s nuclear intentions and the current danger posed by Islamic State.

I've said from the outset and reiterate that Trump will do himself in on national sovereignty, national security, global stability and security.

The wall is a big Trump ado only that does not move the needle with these guys. Putin and Trump move the needle with these guys. When Putin's meter light goes on Trump's meter needle jumps. These guys have seen and known this for more than two years running. Add now Kim Jong Un to the meter reading.

The observation has been made throughout Trump's term that there has not been a significant global crisis. This includes a domestic emergency or calamity that would stir the nation to unite. Or to divide it further. We can be assured foreign leaders hostile against the United States are being very careful not to take, support or encourage any such commotion. It's just too risky for 'em given the chaos in Washington. Foreign enemies can't be sure of what they might expect in response. Besides, foreign enemies are getting what they want from Trump as things are so why upset the proverbial apple cart. They can just keep doing what they're doing, which is to reduce significantly USA national security and to bamboozle Trump into agreement with 'em to include submission and acquiescence.

So there's a weak and erratic Potus/CinC and an anonymous corporate milquetoast as SecDef. If any national security crisis might arise it will be the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Chairman who will direct the response, both strategically and tactically. To include operationally if necessary. It matters not that JCS are not in the chain of command. JCS are the direct uniformed advisers to Potus/CinC on all things military, to include to SecDef also. It was JCS and a strong SecDef who adeptly trashed Trump out of his beloved parade. Trump will sign off on what he is given because it will be an offer he would know better than to refuse in a crisis.

We all know Trump can’t lead. And that is not a good thing.

With so many journalists with journalism degrees you would think they would stick to journalism and not involve themselves with all sorts of national security issues and opinions coming from all sorts of quacks and poor analysts who either don't know what they are talking about or are on the wrong track. Don't listen to seditious leftist commies and socialists who want to take America over and turn it into a godless oligarchy with them in charge. Obama is no longer in charge. Trump is handling foreign affairs and national security risks as well as anyone has before him.

Some of us prefer listening to rational sane journalists. Others prefer crazy people who say god chose Trump.

The film is part of a small but influential “Trump prophecy” movement that proclaims the current administration is divinely ordained and condemns its critics as servants of Satan.

Lefties do have faithful followers who worship the seditious ground they creep on.

At least they are on the ground; instead of in the clouds worshiping sky daddy.

Indeed.

And after the Cuba Missile Crisis of 1962 both Khrushchev and Kennedy were gone within three years. So the USA-Russia business is both strictly business and it is entirely personal.
