UPDATED: Breaking: Bannon has been removed from the National Security Council - Bloomberg

more info and links as I get them UPDATED:

https://www.bloomberg.com/politics/articles/2017-04-05/bannon-removed-from-national-security-council-role-in-shakeup

President Donald Trump reorganized his National Security Council on Wednesday, removing his chief strategist, Stephen Bannon, and downgrading the role of his Homeland Security Adviser, Tom Bossert, according to a person familiar with the decision and a regulatory filing.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster was given responsibility for setting the agenda for meetings of the NSC or the Homeland Security Council, and was authorized to delegate that authority to Bossert, at his discretion, according to the filing.

Under the move, the national intelligence director, Dan Coats, and the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Marine Corps General Joseph Dunford, are again "regular attendees" of the NSC’s principals committee.

Bannon, the former executive chairman of Breitbart News, was elevated to the National Security Council’s principals committee at the beginning of Trump’s presidency. The move drew criticism from some members of Congress and Washington’s foreign policy establishment.

xPost from GD: Oddly worded NYP article attempts to malign LGBT teen girls...

... ends up making the reporter look silly instead.

Check out this odd sentence in the below NY Post article designed to portray lesbian/bi teenage girls as promiscuous but ends up comically the worst written sentence I have seen in a major print newspaper in a long time:

This “vulnerable population of girls” who engage in same-sex or bisexual activity are twice as likely as heterosexual teens to be sexually active.

-24% approval level. 59% Disapprove, 35% approve of Trump

Both numbers are the worst he has ever had. If we look at the below Pew report showing Party ID and leaners, Trump is well into losing part of his base.

Fake President - Real Traitor

Trump officially became an illegitimate President today

Trump officially became an illegitimate President today. He is in office because he and his campaign conspired with an adversarial foreign power to commit seditious espionage against his rival for the Presidential election. And the FBI has evidence of this. This is a crime that has no parallel in the history of the United States. It must result in the resignation of Trump, Pence, their cabinet as well as anyone who knew of this possibility and sought to suppress this including Mitch McConnell.

We DUers all knew this to be the case. What we didn't know is whether the evidence would be there to prove it. The FBI now says they have evidence.

This is Watergate times a thousand. What Nixon did was a parking ticket compared to this.

Prof Rothkopf's take on Trump supporters

He calls it "The Shallow State" and contrasts it with the nonexistent "deep state" in terms of threats. On that and his description of what Trump supporters are looking for I'm hard pressed to disagree. More at https://goo.gl/zTsE7J

JPR OP Title "Lots of Mistaken Trump Defenders on JPR" For once someone there is right

http://jackpineradicals.com/boards/topic/lot-of-mistaken-trump-defenders-on-jpr/

"Get past the surface and you’ll see that ALL of Trump’s actions to date have advanced the interests of the wealthiest and most powerful. What a coincidence..."

--------------------------------------------------------------------
And yet several folks there voted for Trump and said as much proudly. Folks many of us here thought we knew. Many folks in that thread are still trying to justify their votes there and explain why it was better to vote Trump.

And in advance of those folks who are going to reply criticizing me for talking about JPR, it is important to examine how people saying they are on the left can go off the rails to the point they supported this loon we have in the White House, screwing us all.

Spicer and Conway combine to create "Home of the Whopper" most dishonest admin in history
