People are saying Trump has some cognitive problems happening now.  He went in to sign some EOs and he forgot to sign them, said a few words, and walked out of the room.  Then they took the EOs to the other room.  They all looked like WTF.

Did he forget? I thought a reporter asked a question about Flynn and he got mad?

This ^^. Although I think the 24/7 scrutiny of the presidency is wearing him down.

The whole point of the meeting is to sign the EO.  So how does he (get flustered/forget) why he is even there?  Something is not right with him.

He's a child. He didn't forget--he threw a tantrum. So he took his ball and went home.

What bothers me is now he has a precedent of signing them in secret. So he will probably do so at every offered opportunity, since he's allergic to transparency.

I don't think there is much "right" with Trump, but getting flustered by the press isn't a new thing for politicians.

I think the 24/7 scrutiny of the presidency is wearing him down.

I'd say that in Britain, we've had two recent prime ministers for whom the pressure/scrutiny has led to mental health issues while in office. I don't think anyone would say that happened to Obama or Bush, but it does take a special kind of person I imagine. I'd kind of expected that Trump, being largely oblivious to the consequences of his decisions, was not going to be plagued by self-doubts or be affected by pressure.

Susan Rice emphatically says she did not, and I'd add that there is also no evidence provided that she did. I'd say there are two possibilities here, and the one that has the most probability of being true is pretty obvious, like 99.99 to 0.001:

1. Susan Rice purposely and wittingly revealed names of Trump allies who were involved with Russians
2. Trump enablers (i.e., Drudge and Breitbart) threw out another shiny object saying, "Look over there!!" to deflect attention away from the constant drip-drip of more evidence of Trump-Russia collusion. They've never done that before... (sarcasm)

Yup.

But maybe his supporters actually believe that there's no reason to care that the rest of the world thinks our president and his administration is weak, in totally disarray, and generally incompetent?

I'm guessing McMaster has Trump's ear now on these matters and had Bannon bumped? It's a good outcome anyway.

Well, I had a glimmer of hope that Trump would be less hawkish than the rest of the republican field (except Paul) and was a dove compared to Clinton... but it looks like bombs away (at least) in Syria soon. yay.

The only thing that is working in favor of not going to war with Syria is that Putin owns Trump and probably won't let him do it.

Perhaps a little overwritten (Trump's words and actions don't need some of Blow's editorial accoutrements to land a punch) but the part about Trump's response to the Hezbollah question is hysterical: You will see. They will have a message. You will see what the message will be, O.K..

Also of interest are these thoughts on China. Similar to Syria, the foreign policy of the US has become a drifting set of vague notions that are based on mostly misunderstood or wholly fabricated "facts," the communication of which is furthered muddled through twitter tirades in the wee hours.

I just wanted to be the first to go on record suggesting that today's impact of a Trump Presidency is unilateral military action against a UN member state, without the approval of the UN security council, leading to world war 3.  Hooray!

Well, it could have been worse.  He could have sent in nukes, like he suggested during the campaign he would.

Unfortunately Obama set the precedent that the President can go to war unilaterally. He should have been impeached for Libya and Trump should be for this, but Congress doesn't have the guts.

There is a lot of truth in this.  But it ignores the elephant in the room: the concerted efforts by Russia to influence the election through the leaking of emails and the torrent of disinformation ("fake news") from Russian bots on Facebook and Twitter which drowned out the normal social media content and replaced it with Hilary hatespeech targeted at Republicans and Bernie supporters.

Hilary was not a "terrible" candidate.  She had her flaws, as do all candidates, but she was a better candidate than Trump.  The fact that even someone sympathetic can describe her as terrible without a thought just indicates how all-pervasive the Russian disinformation campaign became.

I mean, "lock her up"?  And "we couldn't possibly have a Presidential candidate who is under FBI investigation"?  Tell me now, who was really the terrible candidate?

I would have mentioned Russia too, but my post was already getting very long. Also I'm kind of waiting to see what comes from the investigations. I agree - it's clear that Russian trolls (Internet Research Agency types) were all over reddit, for example, pushing anti-HRC stuff and pro Trump BS. My sense is that Russian involvement went way beyond just chatting with /paying off Manafort and others. Hopefully the investigations to come will clarify just what went down in those deals. The Rosnef sale looks bad, along with much else. Adam Schiff summed it up well in his testimony.

I'm saying she was strategically a "terrible" candidate - not because I bought into the propaganda against her, but because I personally knew so many who had. Sure, I didn't like some of her work as Sec of State, but I think she would have been a fine president. Obviously she was a better candidate than Trump. Hell, she was a better candidate than all of the ~17 GOP candidates. I would have voted for her over all of them.

When I wrote "terrible" I meant she was "possibly unelectable."  And you don't run a possibly-unelectable candidate against a monster like Trump. I mean, early on, they actually tried to push for Trump as their pied piper candidate. Gah.

I'm not sure what you're trying to say with that last paragraph.
The last paragraph was things said about Hillary during the campaign which are considerably more true of Trump in office than they ever were of Hillary as a candidate.

Hillary was not "possibly unelectable" until the Russians got after her with their insidious propaganda.  They are a lot smarter about their propaganda than they used to be - a lot of it is subtle and clever as well as some of it being obvious and crude.

I think Hillary's problem was that she tried to power through the campaign on her own terms without realising (how could she) just how significant the Russian propaganda campaign against her would be.  That meant that she took the high moral ground against Trump, rather than getting down in the muck with him.  I'm not sure whether any other approach would have done better, and until Comey fell for the Russian dirty tricks over the Weiner emails two weeks before election date it was working well enough.

Edited to add: it didn't help the Hillary was a woman and that apparently sexism is even more deeply ingrained in the USA than in most developed societies.

This concept that Russia is the reason Hillary is hated is total bullshit.  Hillary fucked up her campaign in the rust belt and took a lot of votes for granted, while Trump hustled in those states to get more votes and win.   It's very convenient for Hillary to say it was Russia's fault rather than look at her own failures.  All of this is posturing so she can be viable for some other government position or to run again  Play the victim Hillary.  It's so weak.

Post some links to the evidence, then.  The whole thing is a clown show.  Hillary is getting two more minutes of "fame" here and there off of it and she's using it to try to re-build her political capital.   She's going to milk "Russian hacking" for as long as she can to keep her face in front of the cameras, whether there is any real evidence or not.   

Also, I was on Facebook before the election and nearly everything I saw was pro-liberal.  I didn't experience anything that smelled like fake news getting pumped into my feed to manipulate me -- *as if* I base my votes on fucking Facebook.

And you cannot deny her weak campaigning in the Rust belt.  That's all on her.

Yes. Next they will say that Syria's Assad is using nerve gas on his own people so our military has an excuse to go to war there.

 Wait...what?

Like I said yesterday, I'm somewhat heartened that Trump didn't just send a nuclear ICBM.  I take that as a sign that he's finally found some security council advisors who have half a clue.  That's progress!

They've hidden the real launch codes between two books in the Pentagon... Trump only has the Powerball numbers from last year.

Next they will say that Syria's Assad is using nerve gas on his own people so our military has an excuse to go to war there.

You know this conspiracy has to be already making the rounds. Putin told Assad to use a gas attack and then told Trump to respond with force as a prelude to a major US invasion which will distract from the hacking scandal which threatens to reveal that Putin and Trump are blood brother members of the NWO Satanist government. After that it's all chemtrails, Rothchilds, False flag, weed cures cancer, Flat earth, clonus the part horror, etc.

Why do you think Ivanka has moved into the White House? She is tasked with keeping good old Dad away from the red button.

We should also not forget that Neil Gorsuch was confirmed today after the Senate changed the rules for nomination.

From a procedural standpoint, it strikes me as strange that it takes fewer votes to change a rule than a rule that requires a number of votes requires. In other words, if there is a procedural rule requires a 2/3 majority (or whatever), then it should also require that number of votes to change that rule. But, such are the rules of the Senate. Hurrah!

The first step is acknowledging you have a problem, right?

A lot of ways that could have happened. I really doubt anyone at our bases is altering satellite data or something.

Could be pretty easy for the rebels to fake this. They know Assad is beginning to attack a town. They have a way to know when a plane takes off and when bombs will be dropped. they know the approximate targets. They have nerve gas. They blow it up when the plane drops the bombs....

We get into another quagmire.
