I was 18 before someone taught me the proper way to pronounce Epitome. I was pronouncing it Epi - Tome

Epi like in epipen, and Tome like a book Smiley: lol

Or, you know, almost nothing like that.


How else would you describe someone leaking information about intelligence sources in the ME to the public, out of a belief that it was some kind of horrible violation of national security for the president to pass that same information on to a foreign counterpart in a private (supposedly) secure conversation about that intelligence and how to act on it?

The mental process one has to go through to do that is pretty amazing. It's on the same level as someone believing that a given brand of food product is not healthy, so they put poison in the food on the supermarket shelves to "raise awareness" of the problem. That's normally considered pretty freaking insane, right?

That's the mindset that's at work here.

You sound like you are describing the republicans when Obama was president, though.


I'm sorry. Could you point out where conservatives leaked classified information in some kind of attempt to paint Obama in a negative light? And where the media, instead of condemning such a thing, joined in the bashing of Obama based on it?

I agree, that was some serious derangement you posted. But most of us knew you were deranged anyway! Smiley: lol


Great. So you can tell us all what facts support the notion that the Trump administration was in collusion with the Russians? Funny that no one seems to have anything solid to support any of this. It's all innuendo, suspicion, allegation, and rumor. Someone claiming something doesn't make it true. Increasing the number of people repeating something also doesn't make it true. It just makes it a well repeated lie.

you realize that leak came from the whitehouse, from people that are pretty much by definition Republicans right? People appointed and approved by trump are horrified at his behavior. You're talking about this as if the democrats are somehow leaking this information to damage Trump.

I am not interested in debating you, since neither of us will convince the other that we are right. I merely do some drive by commenting.

If Erik Erikson is to be believed, at least one is a conservative who is so dismayed at Trump's behavior that he felt having the media report on it was the only way to try and shock the White House into changing direction.

At any rate, we are literally into "Sure I sinned but it's actually your fault for noticing/reporting on my sins" territory now. Which is a pathetic argument that doesn't even deserve a response.

I don't wanna be that guy, but wasn't there a whole faction in our government that cared nothing more than tearing O and then H down? It is almost as if the last 8 years completely evaporated. Surely, your memories are not that short?

Not that you are wrong, but you are not saying anything new, or even vaguely insightful. Entire US political landscape is a feud between various factions. It is that kind of tribalism that will likely end this country, but hopefully not within my lifetime.

The first time I heard someone say that word I thought they were saying "Pity me".

"He's the pity me of a politician!" or whatever.

Trump was kind enough to confirm that the intelligence came from Israel by saying at an open press event before meeting with Netanyahu that it's not his fault because he never said "Israel" to the Russians.

"Normal"!

He must know something the rest of us don't, because that's been less than effective thus far.

Washington Post wrote:
President Trump asked two of the nation’s top intelligence officials in March to help him push back against an FBI investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and the Russian government, according to current and former officials.

Trump made separate appeals to the director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, and to Adm. Michael S. Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, urging them to publicly deny the existence of any evidence of collusion during the 2016 election.

Coats and Rogers refused to comply with the requests, which they both deemed to be inappropriate, according to two current and two former officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private communications with the president.
[...]
Trump’s conversation with Rogers was documented contemporaneously in an internal memo written by a senior NSA official, according to the officials. It is unclear if a similar memo was prepared by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence to document Trump’s conversation with Coats. Officials said such memos could be made available to both the special counsel now overseeing the Russia investigation and congressional investigators, who might explore whether Trump sought to impede the FBI’s work.

"Normal"!

The US is working to reassure allies that the Trump administration can be trusted with sensitive information in the wake of President Donald Trump's reported disclosure of highly classified material, US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Monday.

"I've talked with (CIA) Director (Mike) Pompeo on this as well because so much of what I do at the United Nations is based on sensitive information. So much of what a lot of the Cabinet members, what they do, is based on sensitive information," Haley said.
"We're trying to reassure all of our counterparts what they tell us is kept, trust, and valued, and we will return the favor," she added.

You can tell how normal all this intelligence sharing with Russia by Trump is by how our UN ambassador is trying to do damage control with out allies. Don't they know that this is all totally normal?
