  • Roger Stone: Deep State tried to 'bluff' Trump to keep some JFK files secret

    Washinton Examiner ^ | 10/27/2017 | Daniel Chaitin
    Political operative Roger Stone said Friday that he believes Trump wasn't allowed to release all of the secret John F. Kennedy assassination records because of an effort by "Deep State" policies to cover their "asses." Stone was reacting to Trump's decision to allow only 2,800 of the remaining 3,100 JFK documents to be released on Thursday, and give agencies six months to review their contents for possible redactions related to national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns. "I was told that they went to [Trump] and said, 'These 200 documents can never be released, but we just don't have...

    I dont like to analyze myself because I might not like what I see. Donald Trump, in an interview for Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success, by business journalist Michael DAntonio. Trump was willing to say and do almost anything to satisfy his craving for attention. But he also possessed a sixth sense that kept him from going too far. DAntonios conclusion to the book. One often-underappreciated virtue of U.S. presidential campaigns is that their extreme length makes it very difficult to conceal what makes a candidate tick. (Barack Obama in 2008 was an exception,...

    No Ammo is Available for the .442 Rimfire Tranter shown Bluffing with a gun often works. Most criminals do not wish to be shot; they run away. But sometimes, the criminal is drugged, crazy, or determined, and they "call" the bluff, often with direct, aggressive action. It is then that you need a few skills to keep from being hurt or killed. First, do not allow the criminal to get close (within five feet) of you. Inside that distance, it is very hard to stop a determined person who has the advantage of action over reaction....

    It takes a lot to make me angry. But one thing that will do it every time is the occasional college administrator who hides behind a university spokesperson or public relations firm. Last week, Bryan College made the serious mistake of attempting to contact me through a hired public relations firm. They made the additional error of having their public relations specialist ask me questions about the substance (that means accuracy) of my reporting about Bryan. To be as clear as possible, I am the reporter in this situation. That means I am the one asking the questions. After Bryans...
  • I Dont Bluff Suppose the president never intended to roll back Irans nuclear program.

    02/06/2014 10:53:19 AM PST · by Nachum · 8 replies
    President Obama has repeatedly promised to do whatever it takes to prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb. If there is no other choice, he says, he will resort to force. In a March 2012 interview with Jeffrey Goldberg, the president famously rejected the alternative policy, namely, allowing Iran to go nuclear and then trying to contain it. He emphasized the point dramatically: [A]s president of the United States, he said, I dont bluff. Really? Suppose this statement was just a show of toughness, timed to keep supporters of Israel on his side during the 2012 campaign season. Suppose that,...

    Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu denied Saturday that he is only pretending to seek a two-state solution, as Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon hinted broadly in a weekend interview. Danons comments do not represent the position of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and the government of Israel, sources in the Prime Minister's Office told the Times of Israel in response to Danons interview, which the same news outlet published Thursday. The sources said that the prime minister is interested in a resumption of negotiations without preconditions, and that his positions regarding support for a two-state solution remain in force. .....

    "No," said White House press secretary Jay Carney, Syrian President Bashar Assad should not doubt how serious the United States is about responding to evidence that the Syrian regime has used chemical weapons against its own people - but Carney added that we need to "build on" that evidence to be certain and would not provide a timetable for that investigation.

    North Korea 'finishes missile launch preparations' and warns foreigners to evacuate South NORTH Korea has completed preparations for a mid-range missile launch from its east coast, officials in Seoul have revealed just hours after foreigners living in South Korea were warned to quit the country. North Korea's Asia-Pacific Peace Committee said in a statement monitored in Seoul that foreign nationals should find out in advance where they can take shelter as well as examine evacuation plans to leave the country. "We do not wish harm on foreigners in South Korea should there be a war," said the KCNA news agency,...

    Somewhere, theres a whiplash lawyer who runs his law office out of a van down by the river who watches the congressional Republicans attempt to negotiate the fiscal cliff crisis and has to turn his head away. John Boehner and his inept coterie of GOP establishment cronies have made every mistake in the book. Its professionally embarrassing. Frankly, if these hacks were my associates, theyd be on a street corner with signs reading Will litigate for food. Congress is famously full of lawyers, but what people dont understand is that it is really full of bad lawyers. Good lawyers tend...
  • Should Romney SEAL his Federal and State Tax Records?

    Romney is stuck at dead center in the Opinion Polls. In order to move the Romney poll needle in a positive direction, why not encourage timid Mitty Romney to SEAL his Federal and State Tax Records when he announces who his Veep will be? In this way Romney would be calling Obama's Bluff, something that Obama has warned others not to do. The Veep announcement and the Sealing of Romney's tax records would give The Media a double surprise at a time of maximum Media audience. Sunday talk shows would then be forced to talk about Obama's sealed School and...

    DAVENPORT, Iowa Newt Gingrich saw the enemy Monday, and his name was Ron Paul. Without speaking Pauls name, Gingrich took dead aim at the Texas congressman whos crept up in state polls as hes started to tumble, and is looking increasingly likely to run strong in the caucuses. Focusing on their foreign policy differences, Gingrich painted Paul as unprepared for the presidency and a threat to American safety. I will stand apart from some of our candidates and believe we need a strong defense, we need a fairly modernized intelligence community, Gingrich said during a five-minute opening statement. I...

    Barack Obama is today preparing to re-enter talks with Republicans as the two sides battle to reach an agreement in the ongoing debt ceiling crisis. Fuming lawmakers pointed fingers at one another and Obama on Thursday as negotiations over raising the national debt limit entered a perilous endgame. Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke warned of economic damage, and an anxious Wall Street envisioned catastrophe if the U.S. defaulted on its obligations. In the build up to today's meeting, Moody's ratings agency yesterday said that the U.S. could lose its top credit rating in coming weeks if a stand-off between the...

    President Barack Obama told congressional leaders that a deal must be in place on Friday, or lawmakers will have to make contingency plans to raise the national debt ceiling, a top Democratic negotiator said Thursday. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) relayed Obamas message to reporters Thursday, saying they will have to act fast on a Plan B if a deal doesnt appear in place by tomorrow. Treasury has said the country will run out of money to pay all of its bills on Aug. 2. "The president has expressed to the group that by Friday we have to get...

    Think Donald Trump's proposed presidential run is nothing more than a stunt? So does NBC, home of the real estate mogul's hit show "Celebrity Apprentice." An executive at the network told Entertainment Weekly on Tuesday that no one is falling for Trump's much-rumored 2012 campaign. "We at the network have no idea whether Trump is serious about [running for president] or not," the executive, who asked to remain anonymous, told EW. "He won't tell even us - and we haven't pushed because we've just decided it is whatever it is. If he wants to spout off about things, we're happy...

I'm doing it because I said I was going to do it and I think it's the right thing to do. People should learn that lesson about me because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real...
