    • Considerations:
      • Clearance Approvals have been SLOW-WALKED for incoming Administration Officials
      • Clearance Approvals are YUGELY BACKLOGGED

      President Trump will NOT LEAVE Clearance Revocation for Obama’s Senior Staff in the hands of a group that delays decisions due to political bias or outside influence
      • The Brennan Revocation was a NO BRAINER that needed no “review”
      • Ordering Clearance Reviews for Clapper, Comey, Hayden, Yates, Rice, McCabe, Strock and Page gives President Trump a SCREEN for REMOVING APPROVAL-PROCESSING SUBVERSIVES

        The President is IN CHARGE of Security Clearances!

        11/2016 Security Clearances and Presidential Authority – Federation Of American Scientists

        “Security clearances are not mandated for the President, Vice President, Members of Congress, Supreme Court Justices, or other constitutional officers,” a recent Congressional Research Service report explains. “The criteria for election or appointment to these positions are specified in the U.S. Constitution, and except by constitutional amendment, no additional criteria (e.g., holding a security clearance) may be required.”
        In fact, the security clearance system itself is an expression of presidential authority. Its scope and operation are defined in an executive order (EO 12968), and its terms can be modified by the President at will.
        And if the President wished to grant access to classified information to a family member, for example, there would be no legal barrier to doing so.[…]

        The E.O. 12968 pointer is to a press release in 1995 (under Clinton)

          Actually it was an Alexandra Chalupa (the junkyard dog of the DNC) and the Soros loving Ukrainian/Russians that started the operation operation.

          CopperTop says:

          borrowed from Yaacov thread…..
          Here’s what my research revealed and my timeline substantiates:
          “On 10/1/2015 Alexandra Chalupa claims she started an investigation on Team Trump but that she had been doing research on Paul Manafort for some period of time before this date”
          That’s the very first mention of that term, collusion with Russia. The date she started her research is pretty odd because nothing happened in the news that would have triggered that suspicion. The only notable thing that happened is that Trump announced he was running for office.

          Alexandra Chalupa started writing a dossier on Paul Manafort before Manafort was ever even mentioned. She made a prediction that if Trump hires Manafort that it’s proof that Trump is colluding with Russia.

          Soon after Trump did start mentioning Manafort’s hiring, Chalupa then became a very hot commodity in the DNC, achieving an almost prophet-like status. Everybody wanted to talk to her then.
          Yeah, I’m not buying that she’s got a crystal ball. Did they have a mole on the inside of the Trump campaign?
          One of the meetings she had was with Marcy Kaptur (D). Isn’t that a really strange name to be popping up in Operation Russian Collusion? Like, sort of completely out of the blue, right? Or is it?

          Who is Melanne Verveer? I did that research on that connection here: https://sites.google.com/view/politicscentral/home/who-is-melanne-verveer-for-one-thousand-alex?authuser=0

          But look what Hillary had to say about Verveer: As Hillary Clinton said of Melanne Verveer, “I used to joke there wasn’t a single person in Washington she didn’t know. Not only was she a legend in the nation’s capital; so was her Rolodex…There is no way to catalog the many projects that Melanne masterminded… She also became a key player on the president’s team.”

          And there’s your link of the dossier to EVERYBODY else in the DNC.
          And what was one of the things that Chalupa discussed with Marcy Kaptur? Oh, yeah, that she can guarantee a congressional investigation of Manafort by September of 2016.

          So they ask Chalupa to continue her investigation. Chalupa gets put onto this committee and is described as having a “very important role.” She’s an ambassador to the Ukraine for the DNC….why is that so important?
          One of the things Chalupa did was, Alexandra Chalupa is invited to discuss her research about Paul Manafort with 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine at Library of Congress for Open World Leadership Center, a U.S. congressional agency. Chalupa invites investigative reporter Michael Isikoff to “connect(s) him to the Ukrainians. Guess who funded that little symposium? Why, John Kerry’s State Dept. Guess who hosted it? FactCheck.org. (Which there’s more to that story that I won’t even go into here)
          Then Alexandra Chalupa emails DNC that she’ll share sensitive info about Paul Manafort “offline” including “a big Trump component…that will hit in next few weeks (which never happened, at least by Alexandra Chalupa)

          In the leaked exchange of emails of that committee, Chalupa starts getting freaked out about having her private Yahoo email account hacked. That really, really freaks out the heads of that committee, so much so that they “fire” Chalupa. Really? You fire people for getting hacked? Why not just move her onto your DNC system of emails? Is it maybe because they need to keep her activities off-site, you know, where a FOIA can’t touch them? Anyway, they fire Chalupa. After four years of working for the DNC, she gets fired, and Chalupa isn’t upset about that not one bit, over something that wasn’t even her fault…….

          But what happens on the very day Chalupa is fired? Oh, Christopher Steele is hired. What a coincidence.

          And what happens FIVE DAYS after Christopher Steele was hired? Oh, he publishes his first report on his dossier, a report that discusses FIVE YEARS of investigation.

          Five days isn’t even enough time for the check to clear, much less conduct five years worth of research.
          And what happens to Chalupa after that point? Nothing, not a word. They completely remove her from the picture entirely. My belief is that they couldn’t put her face on Operation Russian Collusion because she connects EVERYBODY together.

          I suggest you read Yaacov’s work: https://apelbaum.wordpress.com/tag/who-wrote-the-trump-dossier/

        If they need to, have an expert come in and advise them of the threat levels, maybe General Flynn? 😉

        The fact that Omar got a phone into the Situation Room is a definite problem. The fact that she was able to tape President TRUMP too, and worked in any close proximity to him and everyone else is beyond scary. One very disturbing creature.

        Taking people’s phones away from them and wanding them is a requirement of the job in many warehouses, and other businesses. I wish it was in the classroom too.

    and i have had 2 people who are on the fence about trump tell me in the last 10 minutes this is the last straw for them. after the last week of tweets and now this, they said they wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt but this seems too sketchy for them.

                with all due respect to you logger, unless you are someone that believes 100% in president trump you are affected by the outside forces that we all know to ignore. i am not “evangelizing” anything. i do not start up little trump rally’s in my office or on my street. but i watch and observe and make comments to lead conversations in directions or to find out more of what the people are thinking. i do a lot of devil’s advocate type conversing…i know exactly where i stand and that will not change. i inform myself and i have for many years. and to be clear i am not trying to bring these people over to my side off the fence – i just “work on them” planting thoughts and what not.

                people are still, believe it or not, listening and reading MSM, they are still believers in “our government” they are and have been told for so long that we are a democracy that they believe democracy is in jeaopardy because of the president.

                they hear about his tweets and what they cannot stand is the “petty” “rude” “childish” way that he goes about his tweets. we ALL know how president trump tweets, we understand his “way” but many people think he should act like “a president”. and in the last week and a half he has really gone on some pretty good twitter rants that piled up in people’s minds and they do not like it.

                many people are not informed about our foreign policy other than what it has “been” over their lifetimes. we know it has been a trainwreck. we know the trade deals were horrible. we know tarrifs on someone that already tariffs the heck out of our stuff is “fair” – these people are not informed on this and they think the president is making enemies
                of our friends.

                many people have zero clue about immigration. they have been made to feel so sensitively about so much over the last couple decades that they feel like any speech about immigrants is, by definition, racist in it’s origin because you are talking about
                a group of color or just another group not like you. people are 100% brainwashed by this. they do not see the repurcussions in their own life and until that can happen they think you are being “mean”. the ripping babies from mothers thing, even though we saw that for what it was, really had a big effect on several people i know.

                now, there are other issues too, but i think i can stop at that for examples. and needless to say i do not agree with any of those positions they are purporting – but for many you have to take a roundabout road to get them to see the light on certain things. and when you get them thinking in a logical manner for a few minutes, bam, a pocohontas tweet comes out and they go “i just don’t understand why he has to say that! and it’s racist!” (because he is referring to a historical figure and using that to describe a woman as a “fake” native american, they consider that racist – you can interpret it totally different)

                so while you may feel great about wearing a trump tshirt, or a MAGA hat in public, many of us here WISH we could even pull that off without having several confrontations. some of us work in situations where touting your political thoughts could end up in a
                very nasty situation and with a house, a child’s college tuition to pay, i can’t afford to just take everything so cavalierly. and i cannot just up and go find a MAGA job – maybe i’m a pansy and not a true MAGA if i don’t want to quit my job and go move to a great part of the country. but that’s fine. someday when i can i will.

                so thanks for taking the time to want to mark me as a troll, and if that’s what i am, then i accept the responsibility.

Very often you have people in your network who are very good friends and very good people in other respects, but whose politics really and truly suck. In fact, I have CLOSE RELATIVES who are Left/Liberal/Commie/Dems.

And when election rolls around, they mock and ridicule (and even yell) to goad you into taking the bait (despite illegalities).

You are the only reasonable Republican I’ve ever met (which tells me I might be the only one this person has ever met). You are so calm about everything (that’s a good one). Why can’t Republicans be like you (well, most are better than me). And so forth.
          It can be done. Stick to your guns, ride out the Mean Girls B.S. and listen and draw the common points out, which just happen to be the sweet spot, where most people stand on issues. Someone has the left so twisted around, they think they are about 9 million things that have nothing to do with their day to day lives. They are expected to act like weaponized robots, spouting their talking points. They actually have guilt over wanting what is their God-given right, to have pride in their work, pride in their families.
          A more enslaved group you will not meet. Even political prisoners in the darkest, dankest prisons have reported being free in their convictions and their spirit.
          We need to free the left. But they need to want to be freed. When they taste the good things that a good life can offer the spirit – just a taste – then they will want more. Freedom is that sweet and compelling.

        Regarding Brennan, I would ask them if any job they’ve had has ever allowed to get into that company’s system after they are no longer employed. Are they allowed to go back and log in to the computers at the company? Depending on the company are they able to re enter the building any time they want? Are they allowed to go into employees only areas?

        Don’t waste your time trying to convince people of Trump. They are either on board or not. If not, they can only get there on their own. When was the last time you were ablke to change someone’s politics? I live in Massachusetts so here is the only comment I ever make:

        ” Trump is doing a real good job on the economy. His policies really seem to be working”.

          • andrew and shane- here’s another big problem trying to argue with the brainwashed Leftists/Commie/Lib/ Fascist/Progressive/unhinged/Dems:
            They will never agree on a baseline of knowledge and information upon which to base an argument or debate with us.
            Example: if the NY Times says that there is such a thing as global warming and that it’s man made, they they will quote that article and base their argument on the “fact” that the NY Times is their authority.
            Then the next day, if the NYT publishes another article that says, oh wait, we had it wrong, and renowned scientist so and so has proven that there’s no such thing as man made global warming, they will no longer accept the NYT as an authority.
            They do that with EVERYTHING! On EVERY subject. This is why you can’t argue or debate with these jerks- there is no frame of reference.

            Minds are like parachutes- they function better when open.

        That’s exactly where I do live, “ground zero” for anti-Trump sentiment. Politically, nearly everyone I know or work with is anti-Trump, but it’s rarely discussed anymore. My approach is to calmly counter with facts when people start up with “talking points” from the ‘crat playbook. Facts are hard to argue with, the subject is changed or conversation ends. After a few interactions people avoid bringing up political subjects when I’m around, and that’s OK with me.

        Notably there are a few people who express genuine curiosity about my reasons for supporting the President, and I lay out the progress in the economy, foreign relations, importance of immigration control and border security and other topics that may arise. These few rational people are probably going to look carefully at what I’m talking about and likely will be MAGA voters in the future.

        I hold little hope for the rest of ’em, they drank the kool-aid and can’t connect the dots to see the absurdity of their positions. Many of these acquaintances have remarkably “conservative” views, they despise high taxes, abhor the state of the educational system, disgusted by the violent “protesters” infesting the streets, distrust the government, etc., yet see themselves as “liberals” and vote for left-wing nutjobs who propagate the very things my “liberal” friends oppose.

        Bringing this “cognitive dissonance” to their attention might have a long-term effect to awaken them from their hypnotized state. But it’s a crap shoot, always amazing to see their contradictory wheels turning while they don’t see it at all.

        andrew1979: “[…] could i ask for some advise then […]”

        It can be very frustrating. I think FL_GUY gave you a good starting point, andrew.

        Memorize some of the top accomplishments that have benefited most Americans and ask the if they want:
        “Trump result A or Hillary?”
        “Trump result B or Hillary?”
        “”Trump result C or Hillary?” etc.

        For the upcoming elections, note that you respect their choice, but they will be choosing to vote for:
        – Rescinding the tax cuts and raising taxes
        – Putting illegal aliens before U.S. citizens and paying for it
        – Inviting in more illegal aliens
        – Reinstating the UnAffordable Care Act with no plans for lower premiums
        – Reinstating unfair trade practices that cost jobs
        – Reinstating job-killing regulations that had no real benefits besides strangling business etc.

        Or they can vote MAGA.

        If they are a 1-issue voter, like pro-abortion, you might point out that President Trump wants to get it out of the Federal Government and give the issue back to the states, so do they want to throw away all of the good that a MAGA agenda will do just for one issue that they will still have a say on at a more local level? How about asking if they want to throw away all of the good just because President Trump doesn’t tweet the way they think he should.

        Also, half the people voted for Hillary because they didn’t know then what is known now. The ones who found out are the ones who #WalkAway.

        You don’t have to convince anyone. You just have to compare and contrast the choices and let them decide.

        Anyhow, as a few others have mentioned above, I don’t think these are fence-sitters you are talking to, but if they really are you have a little red pill ammo now.

        Best wishes and good luck.

        I live in a very blue city and state. I’m reading what you say and suggest this, Andrew: Perhaps you shouldn’t be discussing politics with your co-workers. You seem to be feeling weak garnering support for Trump because you haven’t got enough information at your fingertips & you are not ready to respond to anti-Trump rhetoric. In fact, it sounds like they are winning YOU over due to this lack of useful facts.

        Read everything you can get your hands on. Don’t engage until you are ready respond with those facts. Nurture you own little garden of enlightenment without allowing large angry democratic dogs to pee on your new buds of understanding. They will trample everything. Gain strength through knowledge and then engage (if you must.)

        I don’t discuss politics with 80% of my friends in this blue state. But those friends wouldn’t be asked to join me on my survival boat. I know who has our nation’s best interest at heart.

      Living in a predominantly anti-Trump region I rarely encounter anyone “on the fence” about PT. People I know are mostly solidly opposed to the President and his agenda, or are clearly supporters. A few have been sincerely interested in what I see as positive about PT, these people may well decide to get on the “train” in the future.

      What I suspect is the “fence-sitters” you allude to never really were supporters of the President but didn’t want to say it directly to you since they knew you did support the President. Likely they just needed an excuse to reveal their true opinion, and whatever was the specific “trigger” for it was only incidental to the actual nature of recent events.

      It’s not really clear what “this” is, exactly what pushed them over the edge. The media and leftists in Congress, etc., have been complaining about the President’s tweets and actions since his inauguration. Nothing has really changed in regard to the President’s views, his style of communication, policies or actions taken. He’s been remarkably consistent and straightforward.

      It strongly suggests the fence-sitters never did and never would truly approve of the President’s stances nor were they or would they be voting for the President or people who would help implement his agenda.

      I suspect what Sarah was alluding to when she said “working hard to be as diverse as possible” is the difficulty finding qualified minority applicants for high level White House positions. Considering how Fake News MSM on a daily basis accuses President Trump of being a racist and a bigot, it likely is difficult finding qualified minorities to fill many positions.
      Had Sarah actually said what I just posted, she would have immediately been hammered by Fake News MSM as being racist and implying that minorities “aren’t smart enough to qualify for White House positions”. She did well to leave it as a very general statement, IMO.

Glenn Simpson’s wife Mary Jacoby was a law clerk at the infamous Rose law firm where Hillary worked. Funny how all roads seem to lead to a Hillary. Wouldn’t be surprised if it’s a Hillary operation too.

      The CIA was the holder of Brennan’s clearance but due to the position he held and policy of honorary clearance req WH authorization to remove it. Brennan didn’t just lose his clearance due to the tweets- although they are unhinged enough to warrant removal.

    The question about hiring more blacks was presented as if the Trump WH is being treated no differently than any other previous WH. The virtue signalling “reporter” in the front row failed to mention how much opposition any black person working for Trump has to endure from the “Resistance forces” or well organized and funded Dem political hit teams. Amarosa was hated and despised for doing so but now that she’s joined the lucrative anti Trump resistance, so she is now being molly coddled and used by some in the MSM. She’s trying to ruin Trump’s presidency when he’s seriously working on jobs for all Americans including blacks and Justice reform that could also help many incarcerated blacks similar to Alice Johnson. In the left’s mind, a black working for Trump is a sellout “Tom” but anyone that tries to oppose or ruin Trump’s reforms that will actually benefit blacks, is a hero.

    Kanye West is a strong person that endured many personal attacks and even death threats (from a few rappers) but it wasn’t easy for him. All he did was state that he likes the President and has a mind of his own and not that he will work with him in the WH. Ben Carson has endured serious attacks and been accused by many in the Race Industry as a sellout of his race and worse but he’s often out of site in his HUD job.

    Any black person that works for Trump had better be a strong and determined person able to withstand the unprecedented malicious, vicious and relentless attacks which is something I doubt that morally lecturing prima donna “reporter” in the front row could ever endure. She’s comfortably surrounded by like minded MSM hacks.
