National security expert John Schindler: Trump should fear 'assassination' by Putin if he stops bein


National security expert John Schindler, a former NSA analyst, argued on Thursday that President Donald Trump should fear assassination by Russian President Vladimir Putin if he becomes no longer valuable to the Russian Federation.

In a column for the Observer, Schindler writes that Putin “can do worse” to Trump than the impeachment proceedings he might be facing after special counsel Robert Mueller closes his investigation into Russia’s attack on the U.S. election system.


“President Trump has more than mere kompromat to worry about here,” he says. “Under Vladimir Putin, Russian intelligence has embarked on a global assassination spree of a kind not seen in the Kremlin since Stalin’s time… [L]ess than three years ago, Putin’s operatives murdered in the heart of our nation’s capital, just a mile from the White House.”

“That message was hard to miss,” he adds. “Robert Mueller can open the door to Donald Trump’s impeachment and prosecution. Vladimir Putin can do worse and does not need to play by any legal rules.”

Trump's last 2 attempts to discuss foreign policy have been complete and utter disasters.


During a news conference on Thursday ahead of his trip to Great Britain, President Trump was asked an extremely basic question about Brexit.

“You are going to the U.K. — what will be your message on Brexit?” a reporter asked him.

Trump was completely unprepared to respond in any substantial or coherent way. Instead, he began by defensively claiming he has “been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple days.” But after a few seconds of stammering, he admitted, “I have no message. It is not for me to say.”

The president quickly pivoted to providing a free plug for his private club in ....


A day later, Trump held another news conference, this one in the U.K. alongside British Prime Minster Theresa May. Ahead of his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump was asked “what your message will be to him on Syria?”

Start calling Trump exactly what he is...

A Terrorist along with all the supporters of him elected or not.
The damage that this terrorist crew is doing to the U.S. at this point in history is more damaging than the ones that flew the planes into the World Trade Center on 9/11.
We have no qualms calling them what they were, why should we be uneasy calling Trump and crew terrorists now?
I believe that the people that engineered and carried out the 9/11 attack had purer reasons for their actions than Trump and his band of terrorists.

a person who uses unlawful violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
"four commercial aircraft were hijacked by terrorists"
synonyms: extremist, fanatic; More
unlawfully using violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
"a terrorist organization"

Defense Contractors Cashing In On Immigrant Kids' Detention


A scandal-plagued company that used to work for the CIA is poised to profit off the influx of immigrant children being forcibly separated from their parents.

One of them, from Virginia-based MVM Inc., seeks a compliance coordinator to help in San Antonio with the “rapid deployment of an Emergency Influx Shelter for unaccompanied children.” As billed, the coordinator would ensure the children’s shelter met “policies and procedures” set by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement. MVM posted the job on its website this week.

MVM appears to believe its business is growing. A job posting on Indeed.com from 20 days ago advertises for youth care workers “in anticipation of a contract award.”

Matthew Kolken, an immigration attorney who frequently represents undocumented children, told The Daily Beast he’s deeply concerned about these contractors’ child care work.

“I’m guessing that in their mission statement, one of the central components isn’t the care of refugee children,” he said. “It is mind-blowing that those types of industries would be even considered with respect to the care of children. They’re not equipped to be able to do it. Would you want your child to be dropped off in their hands? I know I wouldn’t.”

What the f**k?

In off-hand remarks delivered to a press conference in Singapore on Tuesday, Mr Trump said North Korea had great potential for condos and hotels. He also said that from watching coverage of North Korean military drills, it appeared the country boasted “great” beaches.

“Instead of [testing missiles] you could have the best hotels in the world right there,” Trump said he told Kim. “Think of it from a real estate perspective. You have South Korea, you have China and they own the land in the middle.”

Trump said he trusts Kim, but admits that time may prove his faith is misplaced.

“I may be wrong, I mean, I may stand before you in six months and say, ‘Hey I was wrong,'” Trump said. “I don’t know that I’ll ever admit that, but I’ll find some kind of an excuse.”


Was this just an excuse for a real estate deal? Hey maybe I’m wrong, we’ll find out in a few months, but I’ll never admit it.

What is it like to be you?

I feel like this is a very hard hitting video.

Listen to it 3, 4, 5 times to get the full impact.

At first you may say, that’s not me, at first you may say, I agree.
At first you may question just why this is posted on DU.
Then your critical thinking skills start to bother you.
