Probably not a Russian traitor.

-Herbert McMaster

It would be surprising if they were a Russian traitor:

-James Mattis
-John Kelly

It wouldn't really make any sense if they were a Russian traitor but you know that they somehow stumbled into this through sheer incompetence and weirdness:

-Ben Carson
-Betsy DeVos

Probably should be under investigation for being traitors.

-Rest of Trump's cabinet and advisers.

Happy Iran-Contra 2 and Watergate 2.

Without resorting to the entire Cabinet pulling shit out of their pants and eating it on the National Mall, I dare anyone to argue how this administration could be more incompetent.

I imagine this was already answered at some point, but during the Iran-Contra fiasco or Watergate was there a similar willingness from the republicans to disregard and downplay what was happening? Both in terms of elected officials and the average citizen.

I would be pretty surprised if Elaine Chao and David Shulkin were Russian spies. Now THAT is a long con.

Democrats controlled the House during both of those (and I think the Senate, too, during Watergate) so Republicans didn't have as much leverage on the proceedings.

*The timeline that the Bill actually exists*

"Speaker Ryan, don't you have a backup of the bill on your laptop??"

Ryan:

Ryan: While looking up some Overwatch porn, a freshman rep got the laptop with the bill on it infected with Cyrptolocker. We are currently in the process of figuring out how to acquire the bitcoins necessary to unlock the laptop.

That freshman rep's name?

Boe Jiden

So about that positive Trump speech...
Not surprising but it's still gross.

P.S.: Why are there two PoliGAF threads? NeoGAF running worse than the Trump administration! SAD!
What other thread? The thread the evil Killary controlled media said exists? Don't believe them, they l i e. Me, I don't lie. I've never lied. Not once not ever.

Hey guys. Not sure where to ask this, but I wanted to talk about it.

Is this a fair portrayal of how the alt-right operates?

They will take something that would seem like a valid premise to someone not well versed (we will call them Judy here) in the literature. Something like "We are concerned that due to increasing acceptance of the transgender community, more and more confused and alienated teens looking for a acceptance and a group that welcomes them will start undergoing hormone therapy with irreversible effects."

I know how wrong that statement is, but someone who has never really considered trans issues and has never read any literature on it could be excused for possibly thinking its something to be concerned about.

They then surround that "valid premise" with well known (to those who pay attention to these things) rhetoric and anecdotal evidence or non sourced statements.

Then Judy talks to her liberal friend about this how this article she read on the net made her concerned about this.

The liberal friend challenges the premise, so Judy falls back on the talking points in the article. The liberal friend, recognizing the talking points as the classic anti trans rhetoric that they are, has no patience for it and tells Judy to fuck off, she has no time for transphobic rhetoric. Judy then feels like she had a valid, moral concern, and when trying to talk about it, was not allowed to have a voice or an opinion, and fuck those nasty judgemental liberals.

She is now ripe for indoctrination.

So yeah, I was just curious if that is a seemingly fair assessment of how they have seemingly indoctrinated people who would not just sign up for a hateful cause.

Disclaimer, please do not think I am asking anyone to have any sympathy for Judy at all. I am not saying her liberal friend should listen to her, or explain to her or anything like that.

I am just musing on how the alt right plays us against each other and sets people up for full indoctrination.

Kushner? Accidental traitor?

Michael T. Flynn, then Donald J. Trump’s incoming national security adviser, had a previously undisclosed meeting with the Russian ambassador in December to “establish a line of communication” between the new administration and the Russian government, the White House said on Thursday.

Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and now a senior adviser, also participated in the meeting at Trump Tower with Mr. Flynn and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador. But among Mr. Trump’s inner circle, it is Mr. Flynn who appears to have been the main interlocutor with the Russian envoy — the two were in contact during the campaign and the transition, Mr. Kislyak and current and former American officials have said.

Nintendo does better when a Republican is in office.

NES/Gameboy- Reagan

If true, FBI playing long game, making sure they got all their ducks in a row.
This is kind of a big deal, bigger than Watergate, and that took 2 years.
True justice is slow.
Yeah holy shit. If this turns out true then the FBI and whoever else is involved will be fucking heroes. And this future miniseries is going to be epic.

I don't think Rick Perry is a traitor. A combination of too pure and a little too dumb. Tillerson might not be a traitor in that he's only ever been representing his business interests since day 1 and never gave a shit about US foreign policy. Can't really betray a thing you've never believed in or claimed to have fought for. You don't earn that Russian friendship award via fighting for American values.

That CNN poll is good times. Results are white + southern + non-liberal + over 45. Typically you'd never be able to come up with such specific demographics even if you were looking for them!
