Since it’s still unclear who is behind it, I’ve held off posting about the recent spate of vandalism at Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis and Philadelphia, and the bomb threats aimed at Jewish community centers across the US, and President Trump’s less-than-satisfactory response, but WTF?
BREAKING: PA Attorney General: Trump told us "sometimes it's the reverse," [...]
Which naive bleeding-heart liberal said that “Muslims who commit terrorist acts are perverting their religion,” and that the label “radical Islamic terrorism” was not helpful because terrorists are “un-Islamic”?
You guessed it. It was Lt. Gen. H. R. McMaster, President Trump’s recently-appointed national security adviser.
Whether or not you agree with McMaster, it’s good to have someone [...]

As he has in the past (here, here and here) Shepard Smith cuts a singular path at Fox News:
Even though President Trump didn’t mention Fox in his latest unhinged tweet, I suppose it’s fair to call Smith an honorary “enemy of the American people.”
The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not [...]

The Washington Post reported last August:
Like Trump, Flynn has advocated forging [...]
… but this probably isn’t good.
In light of this, and out of worries about the White House’s ability to keep secrets, some of our spy agencies have begun withholding intelligence from the Oval Office. Why risk your most sensitive information if the president may ignore it anyway? A senior National Security Agency official explained that [...]
