    Pro-Trump Protesters Try To Shut Down 'Julius Caesar' Production, Scream 'Nazis!' At The Audience

    On Friday evening, alt-right Trump supporters invaded Shakespeare in the Park in New York City and interrupted the performance of the controversial production of Julius Caeser, screaming at the audience. As tweeted by troll Mike Cernovich, Laura Loomer of Rebel Media charged the stage and began screaming, “This is violence against the right!"

    She was then followed by Pizzagate and Seth Rich conspiracist Jack Posobiec, who stood up from the middle of the crowd and began hollering at them, stating that they were "all Goebbels, you are all Nazis,"and blaming them for the shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise.

    Odd, seeing as Trump said repeatedly he had 'very little debt'.
    This is a man for whom a million dollars is a "small" loan, I'm pretty sure he has no concept of what the man on the street actually considers large sums of cash.

    Or, he just lies reflexively about his wealth and the truth is he's hocked up to his eyeballs in debt and is for sale to the highest bidder.

    Why was there no outrage when they did a similar production in 2012, with Obama as Caesar?

    Weird, huh. And yet they kept saying if someone did the same to Obama liberals would have gone ballistic. Yet it did, and yet they didn't.

    GOP Data Firm Accidentally Leaks Personal Details of Nearly 200 Million American Voters

    Political data gathered on more than 198 million US citizens was exposed this month after a marketing firm contracted by the Republican National Committee stored internal documents on a publicly accessible Amazon server.

    The data leak contains a wealth of personal information on roughly 61 percent of the US population. Along with home addresses, birthdates, and phone numbers, the records include advanced sentiment analyses used by political groups to predict where individual voters fall on hot-button issues such as gun ownership, stem cell research, and the right to abortion, as well as suspected religious affiliation and ethnicity. The data was amassed from a variety of sources—from the banned subreddit r/fatpeoplehate to American Crossroads, the super PAC co-founded by former White House strategist Karl Rove.

    Deep Root Analytics, a conservative data firm that identifies audiences for political ads, confirmed ownership of the data to Gizmodo on Friday.

    UpGuard cyber risk analyst Chris Vickery discovered Deep Root’s data online last week. More than a terabyte was stored on the cloud server without the protection of a password and could be accessed by anyone who found the URL. Many of the files did not originate at Deep Root, but are instead the aggregate of outside data firms and Republican super PACs, shedding light onto the increasingly advanced data ecosystem that helped propel President Donald Trump’s slim margins in key swing states.

    Although files possessed by Deep Root would be typical in any campaign, Republican or Democratic, experts say its exposure in a single open database raises significant privacy concerns. “This is valuable for people who have nefarious purposes,” Joseph Lorenzo Hall, the chief technologist at the Center for Democracy and Technology, said of the data.

    No they're walking back all their faux outrage now that the Orange Buffoon is POTUS.

    Ted Nugent once said Obama should ‘suck on my machine gun.’ Now he wants to tone down the ‘hateful rhetoric’

    And let's not forget this moron:

    Greg Gianforte, Montana's incoming congressman who had recently been convicted of assaulting a reporter, told the Associated Press that, “It’s important to make sure we reach out to all parties and hear their voice. I think the other parties have an obligation, as well, to be respectful and in that dialogue.”

    Flynn failed to report foreign trip to broker US-Russia nuclear deal, House Democrats say

    Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn made an unreported trip to the Middle East in 2015 to work on a U.S.-Russian venture in Saudi Arabia before he joined the Trump campaign, possibly having multiple contacts with Saudi officials that he failed to disclose when seeking renewal of his security clearances, according to Democrats who are seeking detailed records of Flynn’s travels.

    “Most troubling of all, we have no record of Gen. Flynn identifying on his security clearance renewal application – or during his interview with security clearance investigators – even a single foreign government he had contact with,” wrote Reps. Elijah Cummings and Eliot Engel, the ranking members of the House Oversight and Foreign Affairs committees, in a letter published on Monday.

    The Democrats have demanded documents related to all of Flynn’s work on the Saudi nuclear venture, which involved not only a Russian-U.S. effort to construct the nuclear reactors but also a plan to have Arab countries repay the Russians with the purchase of “Russian military hardware,” the letter says, citing internal documents from companies involved in trying to solidify the deal.

    White House Officials Push for Widening War in Syria Over Pentagon Objections

    A pair of top White House officials is pushing to broaden the war in Syria, viewing it as an opportunity to confront Iran and its proxy forces on the ground there, according to two sources familiar with the debate inside the Donald Trump administration.

    Ezra Cohen-Watnick, the senior director for intelligence on the National Security Council, and Derek Harvey, the NSC’s top Middle East advisor, want the United States to start going on the offensive in southern Syria, where, in recent weeks, the U.S. military has taken a handful of defensive actions against Iranian-backed forces fighting in support of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

    Their plans are making even traditional Iran hawks nervous, including Defense Secretary James Mattis, who has personally shot down their proposals more than once, the two sources said.

    The situation in southern Syria has escalated in recent weeks, after a U.S. warplane shot down an Iranian-made drone that had attacked U.S. forces on patrol with Syrian allies near an American outpost at al-Tanf. The drone attack came after two U.S. airstrikes on Iranian-backed Shiite militias, which had moved too close to the Americans’ garrison.

    Despite the more aggressive stance pushed by some White House officials, Mattis, military commanders, and top U.S. diplomats all oppose opening up a broader front against Iran and its proxies in southeastern Syria, viewing it as a risky move that could draw the United States into a dangerous confrontation with Iran, defense officials said. Such a clash could trigger retaliation against U.S. troops deployed in Iraq and Syria, where Tehran has armed thousands of Shiite militia fighters and deployed hundreds of Revolutionary Guard officers.

    Mattis, Gen. Joseph Dunford, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs, and Brett McGurk, the U.S. diplomat overseeing the anti-Islamic State coalition, all favor keeping the focus on pushing the Islamic State out of its remaining strongholds, including the southern Syrian city of Raqqa, officials said. “That’s the strategy they’ve signed off on and that’s where the effort is,” said one defense official.
    Flynn's stooges at it again...

    Well, he's never even met the commander in charge of Afghanistan... Mattis was asked in Congress whether they've got a strategy for Afghanistan and he said nope. Next day apparently 4000-9000 more troops are heading there... To do... what exactly, since they don't have a strategy. What will the 4000 troops do that the 120 000 couldn't previously?

    I dunno hey, escalating conflicts seems to be the only role the commander in chief plays, either by interference or absence. Trump's doing "well" in that sense, although increasingly proving he's an establishment guy, just like the last guy and everyone before him ...

    Here we go, more of that 'there's no difference between them in the end" rhetoric. If a president can't articulate strategy, and leaves it to field commanders to make decisions, you can easily end up with events that signal something that's completely contrary to America's stance, which is a dangerous place to be in. Everything is the same as long as there aren't any serious crises, then the difference between an engaged and a disengaged president become very clear.

    Trump is performing far better than any other candidate would in his role, although a mix of Sleepy Ben and Lying Ted could make for an exceptional candidate.
