Odd Sluration – Seemingly Inebriated Democrat Senator Jack Reed Asks Intelligence Community to Outline Covert Operations in Public…

It’s doubtful you can find a more succinct example of TDS than a seemingly inebriated Democrat Senator asking the aggregate intelligence apparatus, during a public session of congress, to give specific details of U.S. covert intelligence efforts to thwart Russian, Chinese and North Korean cyber-warfare.   [Watch around 06:30] As Democrat Senator Joe Manchin professionally restrained himself from laughing, even Democrat Senator Kamala Harris couldn’t avoid the eye-roll.  ‘Muh Russia’ is real.

Senator Jack Reed (D-RI), ranking member of armed services committee, began his mid-day sluration with a ‘resist-we-much‘ effort to continue the vast White House Russian conspiracy narrative, and slowly morphed into a weirdly-sounding intoxicated demand for the NSA, CIA and intelligence officers to give him specific examples of their efforts to combat quantum cyber-intelligence operations.   Eventually ODNI Dan Coats grabbed the wheel and stopped Senator Reed from going full  Chappaquiddick…  WATCH:

“Best Men” !

        Lets take a vote…

        Russia influenced our elections by…

        A. Covert and Overt actions to sway voters and/or mess with the ballot box and nothing to do with crooked HRC.

        or

        B. The MSM extensive and exhaustive reporting the Russians influenced the election, since HRC is and was the best thing since sliced bread for this Nation. Pure as the driven snow with pockets lined with hot sauce. She could lose.

        Stop for a moment… and game out this poll.

        If A is true, then how did they do it? Well, by B of course. Since it was not some quantum computing mind control scheme run by Putin that set HRC packing. Thus making B true.

        And if with B now being true, what does that say about the result, would that not that say the MSM was most effective in running Russia’s ploy, since by the MSM own reporting Putin’s candidate won by pointing out crooked HRC ways. Nope had nothing to do with it. According to the MSM, it was Russia and Trumph’s collusion alone that won the day because HRC does no wrong. It was just inconvenient factors Russia and Trump made very differcult to sweep away.

        And if A is false, that has to leave B being true, thus making A true all long. But is altogther another story.
        But, if B is false, then that makes A true, and thus B true all along. See how this works, the MSM has tied it tongue into so many knots. The MSM only recourse is to keep alive this circular and self fullfilling dialogue that lead no where except where it should be heading.

          Suckering the deep state which they knew violently hated Trump and would covertly break rules to obstruct him into paying millions of dollars for garbage “intel” on him, thereby either generating the current scandal which would likely be revealed if Trump won or providing handy blackmail material on an easily bribed Felonia von Pantsuit regime. In that way they are influencing future elections while not actually caring which side wins and, as a bonus, destroying any confidence in government.

            A. Russia is taking advantage of this mess.

            or

            B. This mess was planned so that Russia would take advantage.

            I mean by the time you drive home the political arguments, one way or the other on the whole tangled mess of the 2016 election, those two, A or B are the two basic broad divergent observations that lead to WHY?

            A. is in a round about way, is being discussed openly as the result of the Congressional Oversight Investigation.

            But B, is a whole different ball game. Because that would be like saying, this whole mess was started to put the Nation into a Consitutional Crises.
            And, if that is the case, to what end?

            Look my box of crayons could attempt to paint the picture.
            I choose not to do so. Does not mean i have not consider it, it is just that it all leads back to (redacted) except this time instead of a legal proceeding on HOW? laws where violated, the Nation is giving a one two punch to the chops, on how (redacted) (redacted)… (and redacted).

    I just want to say something about artificial intelligence. It’s been the latest hot thing in computing … for like 30+ years. Advances in computing speeds and utilization of coordinated multiple processors make it a little more implementable now than it was in the early days. But still I would say (anyone in AI can correct me if I’m wrong) that it’s still more promise than reality. If AI is already 30+ years old and Reed can’t state factually that the Chinese are putting it to good and threatening use, then I really don’t think there’s a big rush on our side. The analogy to the Manhattan project is laughable. The Germans WERE developing a nuclear bomb, we were most definitely in a race. AI not so much.

  8. I’m just a little bit confused.

    Is Reed suggesting that President Trump and the Intel Community work outside the law to counter whatever russia or anyone else is doing?

    What did the President tell you specifically to do and are you doing more than reporting to Congress and others?
    Maybe I’m wrong or maybe this is why the Democrats are in trouble right now with “Obama Gate”.

    He’s actually questioning why the President and the Intel Community have not take the law into their own hands and acted on perceived threats on their own.

    And even if they are, and I have no doubts about that, he wants them to admit it in an open forum so everyone knows.
    I’m totally perplexed.

      Unlike most here, I think we witnessed a concerted effort by Reed to somehow get highly classified material released in public, much as Shifferbrains attempted with his “Memo” – in order to somehow get Donald. Those men questioned saw and understood, and Harris would be all in on Reed’s side, so her actions are consistent. She needs to be watched – her relatively sudden “prominence” in these matters should be of concern.

      This seems to be the commie left’s new approach – to attempt to somehow get the Trump administration to do what they, the left, and the swamp, have so obviously already done, thus somehow exonerating all they have done.. Of course, Reed’s attempt fell flat, but it should serve us well as a heads-up – the swamp will use whatever to prevent what seem increasingly obvious – their own demise. Whether Reed was bombed or not is not the travesty here, but his bald, naked attempt to prod the witnesses into revealing classified information.

    That wasn’t Trump Derangement Syndrome, but the secondary disease: Russia Derangement Syndrome.

    The inability to accept that Trump fairly won the election leads to TDS. TDS leads to an inability to perceive that “muh Russia” was just an excuse for Hillary’s email problems that evolved into an attempt to smear trump before the election and later an excuse to spy on Trump and his family. RDS then develops as the TDS sufferer’s dissolving brain struggles with the dichotomy between reality and their crazed claims. Either Russia is to blame for their election loss and continues to be the greatest threat to America, or they were wrong about absolutely everything.

    RDS is particularly dangerous in policy makers as China is clearly the fastest growing economic and military threat to the US. Thankfully the agency heads being questioned by the crazed Sen. Reed were openly laughing at him.

    Jackass Reed has always appeared to me to be a lush. He was the epitome of the Peter Principle on Congressional Committee appointments which featured luminaries loonies such as Ted Kennedy, Pat Leahy, Chris Todd, Patsy Schroeder, etc. But when people such as Patty Murray, Shelia Jackson Lee and Maxine Waters are your peers, you almost look competent by comparison. Even the Peter Principle cannot adequately account for our current situation which really demands William F. Buckley’s idea of just picking the first 535 names from any phonebook at this point.

    One thing I hope everyone gets from seeing clips of Dan Coates is that his DNI position is a perfect example of an office demanding to be summarily liquidated. First of all I doubt he has the first clue about cyber-anything and has no business being in such a job. But if you listen to his boilerplate lecture of cyber-threats and deficit spending ( wtf! ) it could be delivered any day of any week of any year and the countries could be readily exchanged for any random nation at anytime. It is empty, meaningless word salad and yet it is funded by infinite taxpayer funds with far-reaching consequences.

    It seems obvious to me that transition-dude Pence and his merry band of expert headhunters selected Coates for this job and we need to face the probability that Pence himself, while a classic God-fearing conservative in life, is a severe under-performer in every job of consequence assigned to him. If the Lord may grant us just one more favor, please help us replace him with James Woods for the next go ’round. Trump-Woods FTW.

Also minimum sentence of 1 yr hard labor and fine = to one year’s salary in whatever position they were found politicking while intoxicated in. No probation, parole, or suspension of sentence.
