Non-US citizens only become radicalized years after first arriving in the country, mostly because of rhetoric from people like Trump. So extreme vetting doesnt matter and that as long as basic procedures are followed, there is no significant danger outside of what happens years later.

and this was different from the first study that appeared a week or so ago.

I need to check this out now.

So, my WaPo subscription runs out at the end of March. I've come across a "52 weeks for $50" offer, but have no clue when it ends. Don't suppose anyone knows?

Annoyingly, though I've canceled my subscription (renewal was $99 for a year), it won't allow me to take advantage of the above offer, since I still have some time left on my current sub. I'm dithering about using my wife's account to grab the $50 offer, and giving my account access to her sub. But that's very... messy.

Anyone have any other ideas on how to take advantage of the $50 offer now? Or anyone seen a better offer?

Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

If Obama set it up so that he can read the transcripts of what's going on inside Trump's campaign then he should go to jail for a long ass time.

Though I'm guessing it's all based on this bullshit.

p.s.
If this is somehow based on him reviewing intelligence programs enacted under Obama and his way to deal with that info is to tweet about it then it's worse than I thought.

Lol you think someone is going lock Pres. Obama up if it's true? Jeff Sessions is more likely to be thrown in jail before that day comes.

If true I suspect this was something that Trump was briefed upon and told to keep quiet to ensure no controversy that would affect other surveillance programs and then Trump had a fit and let loose

If true of course, 50% I know how Obama wasn't much better on spying but 50% Trump is a lying baby

No, I agree with Chichikov on this. But, that's probably nothing at all close to whatever nonsense Trump is tweeting about.

If it was an actual tap for election purposes, he would leak that shit immediately. Would improve his standing if he can point to scandal-free Obama as a criminal.

Why is wires tapped in quote marks? It sounds like some kinky sex night with hookers, gambling and cocaine.

I don't have Prime, no. My wife's working abroad and I'm with her, and currently we're in a country that doesn't even have a decent postal system, so not much point in getting it, either. :(

I was asking because you get 6 months free +4$ monthly subscription of WaPo after if you have Prime.

Don't know of another deal, sorry.

It's another Breitbart story apparently:

Per an official, I've confirmed that several people at the White House have been circulating this Breitbart story. http://www.breitbart.com/big-governm...dermine-trump/

This tweet basically explains what's up

-Conservative host Mark Levin brings this up on his show but its actually old news we knew about last year (some thought Obama ordered a wiretap - oops no that didn't happen)
-Breitbart wrote and article about this yesterday
-Trump, having never heard about this story before or heard about it already and forgot it, goes a tweetstorm

In episode 6 of Russian Connections, Obama (played by Giancarlo Esposito) shows up revealing himself to be orchestrating an ongoing black operation in the CIA to overthrow Trump's Presidency.

To be fair, I have a particular hatred for that guy since he's the one my dad listens to religiously (and me too when I was still in that right wing bullshit quagmire), so his rantings being validated by Trump just pisses me off.

It's almost as if we should be doing less agitation of everyday Muslims, with things like travel bans and loaded rhetoric, to deny them propaganda to recruit and foster home grown extremism.
