  • Turkey’s Stalinist prosecution of journalists for tweets and blogs

    The Washington Post ^ | December 27 | Editorial Board
    THESE ARE dark days for journalists in Turkey, now the leader among governments that imprison news-gatherers. In one week alone, nearly 70 journalists were on trial on false accusations of supporting terrorism. Under President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey, a member of the North Atlantic alliance, and not all that long ago a boisterous democracy, has fallen into the grip of dictatorship. The theater of the absurd is in full season.

    During the relatively dead news cycle between Christmas and New Years, most media outlets choose to burn up some space with retrospectives on the year that’s ending. Politico is no exception, and one of their features this week was dedicated to people who had found themselves engaged in Twitter feuds with the President, with an eye toward how well they had “survived” the encounter. They chose to highlight Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, Kathy Griffin, Alan Dershowitz, John Podesta and New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Rather than a series of survivor stories, most of these (with one notable exception) seem...
  • FBI Agents Fire Back at Trump: Saying we're not dedicated is 'simply false'

    The head of FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) fired back at President Trump’s comments against the bureau on Sunday, saying any suggestion that agents aren’t dedicated to their jobs “is simply false.” “Every day, FBI Special Agents put their lives on the line to protect the American public from national security and criminal threats. Agents perform these duties with unwavering integrity and professionalism and a focus on complying with the law and the Constitution,” FBIAA head Thomas O’Connor said in a statement. ”This is why the FBI continues to be the premier law enforcement agency in the world.

    Associated Press via Sacramento Bee ^ | December 3rd, 2017 | Unattributed
    WASHINGTON-The Latest on the removal of a veteran FBI agent from the special counsel's investigative team (all times local): 1:20 p.m. The top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee says the panel is starting to see "the putting together of a case of obstruction of justice" against President Donald Trump. Speaking on NBC's "Meet the Press," California Democrat Dianne Feinstein said the evidence is coming partly from "the continual tweets" from the White House. Trump is focusing renewed attacks on the FBI, and on the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, two days after ousted national security adviser Michael Flynn...

    I haven’t been a Hannity watcher in years but I’ve checked in intermittently this week to see if there was any ‘tock’ to his ‘tick tock’ tweet. Unless I missed something it seems another case of  Sean’s breathless over-hyping. So yesterday while skipping through the DVR I caught one of Sean’s panels with Doug Schoen, Lanny Davis and Tezlyn Figaro (a Bernie Bro). I don’t know what they were discussing because the entire segment consisted of at least 2 and usually 3 people talking at once, as usual. What made this clip notable, via split screen technology, was that in...

    If there was a fancy Malibu rehab center for Trump Derangement Syndrome it would be jam packed with celebrities right now. Ten months into Trump’s first term Hollywood actors, directors, comedians and singers are STILL having trouble coping with life under President Trump. Comedian Rosie O’Donnell confessed her sick obsession: “I spend like pretty much 90 percent of my waking hours tweeting hatred” towards Trump. And for some celebs Trump became a literal nightmare they can’t wake up from. Actor Rob Reiner whined: “I’m in a nightmare that doesn’t ever stop,” and hippie-singer David Crosby wailed about the “orange nightmare...

    When a Trinity College professor drew national outrage for his “Let them all ******* die” Facebook status update about white people, his college stood by its man. Not all students and donors were similarly inclined. "Donors have pulled back and incoming students have decided to go elsewhere in response to the firestorm that erupted from a professor's racially-charged Facebook posts, Trinity College’s president said Monday," Russell Blair wrote in The Hartford Courant on August 1, 2017. "Joanne Berger-Sweeney said 16 incoming students have withdrawn and past donors have chosen not to contribute to the school this year, resulting in about...

    There is a reason why the mainstream news media and the Democratic Party are in an uproar: They’ve been left out of the political equation by a player who understands the game better than they do. And that player is President Trump, who has conducted a masterful war against his media foes over the last 72 hours, launching a series of strategic tweets that deemed the hostile press not only “fake” but “fraudulent.” The president himself declared that he was the victor to his 31 million Twitter followers, adding one more telling tweet that summarizes his very effective skill set:...

    Until 2011, I worked for a federal government law-enforcement agency. Just about every day, my coworkers and I wrote letters, speeches, and FISA requests that went out of the building under the Director's signature. Before it left the building, these communications were reviewed by dozens of people, especially the legal staff, to make sure it was legally perfect, grammatically perfect, and not stupid. Until now (how naive of me), I thought President Trump's tweets were thoroughly "scrubbed" in the same way. I assumed that the before a presidential tweet went out it was reviewed by the WH Counsel's Office and...

    The president has a huge impact on the country’s political culture. Trump’s misuse of the bully pulpit ensures that that impact is negative in his case. So, he did it again. As we’ve learned countless times since his inauguration, President Trump is the exact same person as celebrity Trump and candidate Trump. He’s crass, vicious, and petty. This morning, he tweeted this: Read more at:

    First Lady Melania Trump’s office defended the president's outburst in a statement: “As First Lady has stated publicly... when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.” This comes despite Melania’s pre-inauguration promise to dedicate her powers to fighting cyberbullying. White House Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders additionally told Fox News: “This is a president who fights fire with fire.”

    Trump on Thursday went after MSNBC show “Morning Joe” and its hosts, former congressman Joe Scarborough and commentator Mika Brzezinski. He even took a shot at Brzezinski over a supposed facelift. “I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!” Trump wrote in a pair of tweets.

    "I know words. I have the best words,” Donald Trump famously declared in 2015, when he was still a long-shot presidential candidate. Now, thanks to Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," those words will be on display at the new Donald J. Trump Presidential Twitter Library. As befitting a form limited to 140 characters, the library will exist only for a weekend. The pop-up library in Manhattan will open Friday and close Sunday, Deadline reports. But according to the show, it’s not the form, but the content: "The library will be so tremendous that the public is going to get tired...
