Is that really it?

From Ann Coulter today;

The big secret Trump allegedly revealed is that Muslims might try to blow up a plane with laptops.

It is true that I had not seen what Trump had supposedly said to the Russians, but if that is what it is, the left are deranged beyond measure and its media hacks borderline insane. Outside the football scores, you cannot believe a single thing you read in the papers or see on the news. It is a sickness, but what is the cure?

    Unless I’ve completely missed the point, I thought we all KNEW about the laptop bomb possibilities. President Trump had put in place some restrictions regarding lap top computers in hand luggage way back in February. So where’s the problem? Unless the BIG secret is that Israeli intelligence first found the plot. The other thing that bugs me (apart from that complete fuckwit john Barron and his 40 y.o. juvenile offsider from the ‘Chaser” and his stoopid “Planet America”) is this nonsense about ‘impeachment’ . ( cont. next)
    President Trump might have been unwise to sack James Comrey, but it was well within his authority to do so. And he did not say that he had “tapes” only that Comrey had better hope that there were no tapes. Anyway if Comrey was so concerned when Pres Trunp asked if the investigation into Mike Flynn could be dropped, all he had to say was” No, Mr President, that would be improper” Instead he runs off and tells tales! I’m sick of the trouble making Press both there….and here.

    Perhaps the story was created as a decoy to distract from the news on the Seth Rich assassination!

    Steve, you have to understand the delinquent children we call the left started out as warriors for causes. They never planned to become part of a corrupt ruling class and they’re not coping well with the daily freakout that presents.

    When people have tried treating them as adults, it was an abysmal failure.

    Therefore, as we take our countries and their institutions back and even though they’re evil and malicious, we must never lose sight of the fact that all the damage was done in their parenting and education, which together causes the 24/7/365 tantrum that is the cry of the maladjusted spoiled brat unable to respond to adult stuff like personal responsibility and reason.

    They won’t be happy until they’re back in a tax-eating oppositionist swamp doing what the left specialises in — being unhappy and unemployable.

    The Leftist media has all the measured objectivity and rationality of a group of over-excited schoolgirls at their first rock concert. The only thing I have not heard or seen them do is scream and burst into tears. And maybe wet their pants – although I am not sure about that. Mind you, this finger pointing, screetchy little CNN darling went horribly close when attempting to silence someone by clapping her hands at them to shut them up for having the temerity to question the authority of the “stellar reporters at CNN”.

  7. NewChum

    Surely all this Russia stuff is going to burn itself out. Why is Russia an enemy anyway? Not an ally, not an enemy, but important to getting rid of Islamic terrorism.

    The evidence that the dnc leaks came from Seth Rich is detailed and warrants further study. The evidence that the trump campaign worked with the russiains is..well, what evidence is there exactly?

    And how does it compare to Obama meddling in the Israel elections?

    It is the shallowest political story in a string of very shallow puddles.

  8. Defender of the faith

    Kates apparently has no access to the internet. Or somehow has had his access severely constrained to block out facts.
    Steve: the issue is that Trump spoke to Russians about specifics that were very highly classified and which the source – Mossad – was highly sensitive about. Trump has confirmed in his own twitter account that he did so. The only unknown is the exact nature of the secrets.

  9. Bruce

    Tom:

    “…the delinquent children we call the left started out as warriors for causes. They never planned to become part of a corrupt ruling class…”

    You give them WAY to much credit for decency and “principles”.

    They were (and still are) ALL ABOUT POWER, nothing less. Sure, it may be couched in terms of sweetness and light, egalitarianism, etc. and padded with swathes of “innocence”, but that is just how they lead the punters down the road to Hell.

  10. Razor

    It may be stopped by the too big to fail Finance institutions – even though are involved in the deep state.
    Reason: the US market fell by over 300 points today attributed to the concern that Trump may not be there to incorporate his taxation and budgeting plans. I can see the calls to Bezos from the top persons to cease and desist less a pox hit the market house and the falls continue to where the market should really be back around 15,000.

  11. Razor

    Steve: the issue is that Trump spoke to Russians about specifics that were very highly classified and which the source – Mossad –

    Sorry you have no argument unless you look at the MSM faux news. Nowhere is what you say above an established fact it is hearsay without any form of proof.
    You are defending a faith not a truth

  12. Dr Faustus

    Steve: the issue is that Trump spoke to Russians about specifics that were very highly classified and which the source – Mossad – was highly sensitive about.

    The issue is also that WaPo, “a U.S. official familiar with the matter“, “a former senior U.S. official who is close to current administration officials“, and a “former intelligence official who handled high-level intelligence on Russia” have been ensuring that ‘the ally’, Russia, ISIS and the whole world are as aware of the details as they possibly could be.

    “If that partner learned we’d given this to Russia without their knowledge or asking first, that is a blow to that relationship,” the U.S. official said.

    The US now has an open conga line of deep-state operatives who are perfectly happy to increase any potential damage to US interests if it chips away at Trump’s presidency.

    Once there was a term for this.

  13. Anonandon

    If Trump attempted to obstruct justice and Comey kept this all to himself for two months then he may have himself committed a crime.

    Nothing remarkable about this.

    Unless you’ve seen the intel and have a deep working knowledge of source and consequences, you’re in no position to make any judgement about whether it might have harmed US interests.

    Totally agree Dr F, but I’m not sure they’ve caused as much damage (except politically) as they want. As best I read it, Israel have said publicly that they aren’t concerned. Yes they may have reasons for dissembling on the issue, but if so I think the most likely is that they see The Donald as an ally and even if he has done something silly (for which I’ve seen no real evidence yet) they’re willing to look at the big picture.

  17. Stimpson J. Cat

    Maybe Mossad discovered that terrorists have miraculously developed the technology to take control of a planes flight systems via laptop.
    They are incredibly technologically advanced after all.
    But why not share this information?

  18. iampeter

    Doesn’t this make it even worse for Trump and his team not better?

    What kind of political amateur operation allows their opponents to make so much hay out of nothing?

  19. Oh come on

    Really? Now the Israelis are down on Trump? Shit, I bet they super regret that Hillary isn’t President.

    This from a man who led the chorus of wails about the meeting schedule updates and recipe swapping in Hillary’s emails.

    If Trump had told the Russians about the great pizza he just ate, then the 4chan brigade might be interested.

  23. To maintain healthy blood pressure I am increasingly avoiding news feeds from the ABC.

    It is not uncommon now for a report to camera to completely contradict a video clip of a political item. It is simply breathtaking in respect to competence and/or partisanship.

    You could try topping yourself, Steve, but at s minimum it looks like you need a Bex and a good lay down.

    How hilarious that this latest breathless rant comes from the guy who recently posted a cartoon of leftists with their heads exploding.

  25. Pivot

    The cure? to the MSM committing suicide right before our very eyes?
    We’re at the 119 day mark of a 4 year term people, let that sink in. Another 4 year Trump term will most certainly do it, hell even the the thought of another 4 years will have them reaching for the razor.
    It’s natural selection Darwin awards style & personally I’m loving every moment.

    Peter #comment-2383068 +1 sir, brilliant! CNN, WaPo, ABC, NYT etc. a fresh supply of utter crazy every day.

  26. I’m sick of the trouble making Press both there….and

    For quite some time today, as news broke on commercial radio about the extraordinary fraud within the ATO, the ABC was obsessed with the story about Trump and Comey.

    If the “Russia done it” allegations are to be investigated, then the Wikileaks claim that their source was in the DNC, not Russia, must also be investigated.

    To do this, the death of Seth Rich must also be investigated.

    Interesting times ahead!

  30. Cannibal

    Government aviation security teams routinely share information between governments, and between their counterpart’s airlines. They have done for at least 40 years to my certain knowledge. So the so-called charge against Trump is that he told another head of state information that would have been circulating within the aviation security locus for probably months. Trump told Putin something he probably already knew, or could readily confirm in order to rebuild a relationship that Bamby so comprehensively trashed.

  31. tylos

    The MSM is also trying to argue that Trump exposed the source of the information on explosive laptops – and that intel reveals where Israel has an undercover agent (as if they now care about Israelis!).
    CBS news has just reported that the explosive laptops were developed at the University of Mosul – now under Iraqi government control. Seems like the White House can easily argue it got the info straight from the source in Mosul.

  34. Defender of the faith

    Dear folk above with allergies to any medium that is not authored by their mum. You can actually read Trumps own tweets on his twitter account. You can see real live people such as McMaster talking in their own words in YouTube. In fact there are very many sources of primary kinds.
    But of course many if you only want stuff that fits your prejudices. Like Steve Karen.

  35. C.L.

    Trump spoke to Russians about specifics that were very highly classified and which the source – Mossad – was highly sensitive about.

    LOL.
    Here’s something else they’re sensitive about: Barack Obama sending Tehran crates of cash to build a nuclear bomb.

  36. C.L.

    So far Trump the alleged intell blabbermouth has avoided a massacre in a gay nightclub, a massacre at the Boston marathon, a catastrophic war in Libya and a US Ambassador being dragged dead through the streets.

    Muslims using laptops as bombs documented in the movie Traitor, 2008

    When you are up to your arse in crocodiles its important to remember your objective is to drain the swamp.

    DotFaith, it seems you are saying you know Trump did something wrong, but you don’t know what he did.

    Any evidence for this belief? No unnamed sources, no opinion.

    I don’t take things on faith.

  42. rickw

    Aviation Industry publications have been discussing the potential for laptop and large electronic device cabin bans for some time, due to the fact that it was widely known and communicated that muslims were attempting to make bombs out of them.

    To monty and associated left wing morons, Trump discussing this issue with the Russians is hardly any kind of security breach, and as with LAG limits, as soon as you implement the measures, muslims know that you have discovered their capability to make bombs from these materials.

  43. Dr Faustus

    Aviation Industry publications have been discussing the potential for laptop and large electronic device cabin bans for some time, due to the fact that it was widely known and communicated that muslims were attempting to make bombs out of them.

    So widely known and communicated that starting 15+ years ago travellers with laptops in their hand luggage had to switch them on at security to demonstrate they were fitted with batteries rather than Semtex.

  44. NewChum

    This from a man who led the chorus of wails about the meeting schedule updates and recipe swapping in Hillary’s emails.

    Hardly worth repeating, but the scandal with the Clinton emails is:
    1. Classified information shared on home brew server, thus breaking the law. As the FBI found, but declared ‘no intent’ which is not a valid excuse.
    2. Emails deleted after subpoena, as confirmed.

    Hardly surprising it was ‘yoga and weddings’ after everything else, including classified info, was deleted.

    Clinton didn’t have to collude with the Russians, they were perfectly capable of opening the weak security on her bathroom co-located server.

    Has Trump deleted 33,000 emails under subpoena?
    Has Trump framed and arrested a video maker to cover up a gun running operation gone bad, resulting in the death of an ambassador and staff, after he cackled with glee about allowing an Islamist mob to assassinate the sitting leader of a country? Brutally assassinated with not trial, no judge, no sentence.

    What has Trump actually done?
    – expressed a desire for an already-closed investigation to be completely wound up. Something the FBI director confirmed under oath by directly stating he had not experienced any influence on investigations.
    – told the Russians to look out for Muslim terrorists with laptop bombs

    This is why the general public is not buying the truckloads of BS being shovelled. The only ones who are sold on all this wall of BS are those who are thigh deep in TDS and looking for a way out.

    Trump has been disappointing on several levels, but he is a rank amateur at actually breaking the law like a Clinton.

    John McCain will never stop compensating for getting captured. Sorry John, but we don’t want a war with Russia.

    I was watching the news with a Korean War veteran a while back, and they were covering the latest McCain anti-Trump whinge. I told him that McCain was a war hero. This got his immediate attention and asked “for doing what?”. I answered that he got shot down over Vietnam and subsequently spent years in a POW camp. “So he’s a war hero for getting captured?” he sneered. I told him what Trump’s comments were about John McCain and he laughed and said he agreed with him.

  50. NewChum;

    This is why the general public is not buying the truckloads of BS being shovelled. The only ones who are sold on all this wall of BS are those who are thigh deep in TDS and looking for a way out.

    I don’t know about the General Public. Are they in fact buying it? Are there any polls done showing support for Trump is falling? Any that tell us the MSMs objectivity has dropped further since Trump became the 45th? Any MSM organisation that has gone bankrupt lately?

  51. Jannie

    Wow Dot, for a moment I was bewildered. But no probs. As a matter of interest what would be the correct contraction for the Faith defender?

  52. Muttley, you should curtail the wannabe rakeists in your midst. They’re trying to steal your glory.

  53. Steve: the issue is that Trump spoke to Russians about specifics that were very highly classified and which the source – Mossad – was highly sensitive about. Trump has confirmed in his own twitter account that he did so. The only unknown is the exact nature of the secrets.

    No.he.did.not.

    He tweeted that he shared information. You’ve changed that into sharing secrets, but there is no admission or evidence that any of the information was secret.

    We’re you born a liar, or did you take lessons?
