No, really. This time for SURE, dammit.
President Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State.
Translation: “…according to current and former U.S. officials”=Obama sleepers who haven’t been rooted out and dispensed with yet—but badly need to be. As for “highly classified”: as President, Trump is the ultimate arbiter of what is classified and what is not. Yes, there is procedure for that, and no, Trump appears not to have followed it here. But let’s have a look at what “highly classified” material the Great Orange Boob Who Is Not Really President stupidly revealed in his stupid orange stupid boobness:
One day after dismissing Comey, Trump welcomed Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ambassador Sergey Kislyak — a key figure in earlier Russia controversies — into the Oval Office. It was during that meeting, officials said, that Trump went off script and began describing details of an Islamic State terrorist threat related to the use of laptop computers on aircraft.
Oh. So he was sharing pertinent, actionable, and time-sensitive information with the Russkies, WITHOUT REVEALING SOURCES OR METHODS, in hopes of enlisting their help in fighting the jihadist filth—information that most of us could have easily guessed at, and have long anticipated.
UNFORGIVABLE! IMPEACH THIS RUTHLESS DICTATOR NOW!!!
For almost anyone in government, discussing such matters with an adversary would be illegal. As president, Trump has broad authority to declassify government secrets, making it unlikely that his disclosures broke the law.
Aw, gee, so sad for ya; brought up a little bit short there again, eh? Par for the course, and in keeping with every fizzled stinkbomb the Progtards have launched at Trump so far, there’s just no there there.
Better luck next time, losers. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bunch of assholes, if you ask me.
White House officials involved in the meeting said Trump discussed only shared concerns about terrorism.
Which, y’know, is the truth. I’ve been saying it from the beginning: whatever differences we may have with Russia, an alliance with them to crush jihadist terrorism once and for all has great potential, and may indeed end up being our only realistic path to true victory.
So naturally the libtards are going to scream about it loud and long; it discomfits them on more levels than anyone can possibly keep up with. Can anybody really wonder about their rapid descent into complete, very public madness? Their entire universe has been turned upside down, their carefully nurtured and unrealistic worldview exposed as a hollow joke. Unfortunately for them, Bill has the right of it:
Two of the three US officials who attended the meeting (other than Trump himself) have branded this fairy tale (sourced to “former officials of the intelligence community” i.e. Obama mouth-puppets) as “untrue,” which is diplo-speak for “filthy lie.”
Predictably, even FOX News, not to mention every Democrat Fake News outlet, is waving wet panties from every flagpole in sight over it.
I don’t care.
This whole Trump Derangement Syndrome noise machine is, at least for me, finally subsiding into little more than a dull and inchoate roar slowly fading away in the background. Apparently there will be a new TDS hair-on-fire moment every three days or so for the next seven years of Trump’s presidency.
Bingo. As they descend further into a morass of self-thwarting folly, we should all continue to be diligent about mocking them, scorning them, humiliating them, dismissing them at every turn.
But there is a serious side to all the hilarity, and in our merriment we shouldn’t lose sight of that either. The patriotic, Constitution-revering, all-American Left has one goal, and one goal only: to de facto overturn the results of the last election by any means they can contrive. Elections they don’t win, you see, don’t count, and are to be considered illegitimate. Any means, any means at all, by which they can ignore the will of the people as expressed at the ballot box and hold onto power are perfectly fair.
What blows my mind is how long it’s taken some of us to realize what they really are. But the mask is fully off now; at this point, they couldn’t hide it if they wanted to. Trump has helped greatly with nudging that process along, pushing the Progtards over the cliff of lunacy they were so long a-building, and I can’t see that as anything but a very positive development indeed. Our hope at this point must be that he didn’t come along too late.
And I’ll add this thought: the next Democrat Socialist president ought to have impeachment proceedings logged against him, her, or it precisely five minutes after taking the oath of office. There ought to be multiple investigations, special prosecutors, and High Inquisitor proceedings launched against him, her, or it the very moment the election results are in, and they ought to be vigorously pursued every single second he, she, or it remains in office. That ought to confirm once and for all whether the Republicans are truly serious about winning, or whether they’re no more than a pasty illusion of opposition themselves.
