I'll trust you to continue the conversation with this supporter of the orange menace going forward. I have no use for him or his ilk any longer.
My father kept his clearance for almost a decade after his retirement, and was consulted many times after he left active duty, much to our country's benefit. He held often contrary beliefs from the mainstream, but was valued for his experience and perspective. It is a shame that we may lose the value of balanced and independent views in our intelligence services going forward.
My pop was a Republican and a patriot. He would be ashamed and enraged about what is going on in our country right now. My family continues to serve our country, and although I cannot and will not speak for any of them, I know that they are aware of, and involved in supporting the essence of what makes our country great.
As for those of you who support political retaliation for honest and patriotic speech, I can only wish that you could comprehend the sacrifice and pain that has been given to allow you to be so ignorant and obtuse. If you could, you'd be ashamed.
PH, only those who do not understand what you and I explained above would applaud Trump's removal of security clearances from former senior officials, and then only for partisan political reasons contrary to the country's interests. Now that we've explained that to him, let's see if Napacat sees and admits his error in this case, given that he's said that he values constructive discussion, or if he stays silent or continues to put Trump's interests ahead of his country's.
And BTW, I was dead serious about that offline I mentioned above! W+a says you're a fine fellow. Let's do it!
First...Rand Paul suggested that Brenan’s Security clearance should be pulled...not Trump alone. Second, the level of decorum in Washington is disgusting on both sides. Trump gets over 90%+ of negative coverage. Pretty tough for anyone to take this level of criticism.
Trump’s obviously not without faults...but the outrage in my opinion is completely over the top. I get you may not like him....but it is nowhere near as bad as being portrayed.
Was watching a great discussion tonight on Levin’s show Between him, Tom Coburn and another gentlemen whose name I don’t recall...no shouting or name calling just a nice exchange of thoughts and ideas how to correct our mess!
our current politicians don’t do this or seem to care to resolve our issues. Just demogouge and pander. If you watch Clinton, Obama and Schumer talk about illegal immigration a few years ago and now listen today...you see what is wrong with our politicians.
90% of coverage. Says who? Fox News? The worst fact checkers on the planet. I do catch good stuff on BBC, WSJ, CBS on some items.
Just remember a 1000 at-a-boys, can be erased by one aw-$hit. There have been too many of the latter in the last 18 months. Can't pi$$ off friends, and embrace enemies. Can't start trade wars with everyone. Economy is up since 2009, but the level of living has gone down. Inflation up.
Rand Paul is only a shill for the orange man. Has never done anything meaningful the time he has been in the Senate.
It's not because we don't like him, it is plainly poor performance, dividing the country, mouthing off on his tweets, and hiring only the best, that are now all being indicted. Now we have a speech writer that belongs to the Hitler Youth.
Surprised that you can't see the forest for the trees
