I thought his head had finally exploded......W. Bush refused to read intelligence briefings and we survived...I'm sure other presidents wouldn't always read them.....they get a lot of the same info every day.. -----pbs-----..But President-elect Donald Trump has taken an unprecedented approach: ignoring the briefing most days altogether. Instead, Trump has opted to receive the report roughly once per week since he won the election, a break from tradition for a president-elect.

Trump dismissed the daily briefings as repetitive and unnecessary in an interview with Fox News on Sunday, arguing that the report rarely changes from one day to the next. Trump said that “my generals” and the vice president-elect, Mike Pence, were receiving the daily briefings so he didn’t have to.
--------The daily briefing, which began after World War II under Harry Truman, can contain repetitive information on specific issues and regions around the world, according to several former officials who have worked on the briefing in the past.

“Sometimes it’s really boring and you spend two minutes on it. Sometimes it’s really interesting,” said Andrew Liepman, a former senior C.I.A official. Moreover, the brief represents just one facet of a nuanced relationship between the president and the intelligence community, Liepman said.
-----------------“I do think the PDB is an important factor in the relationship, but it’s not the only factor,” Liepman, who worked on the daily brief under several administrations, said. “It’s a mistake to say unless the president takes the PDB every day he’s not prepared to govern. That’s oversimplifying it.”

Presidents receive intelligence information in several other ways in addition to the daily briefing, said John McLaughlin, who served as the acting director of the C.I.A under George W. Bush in 2004.

Yes indeed, we survived. The people who didn't survive aren't among those called "we" anymore, are they? No, they're called them.

Crazy Keith indeed. Yea! help us CIA, FBI, even the Russian GRU. What's a little coup d'etat in Washington. It can be done with a minimum of fuss, a little blood perhaps and afterwards everything will be perfect. The American democracy, happiness and faith (in the dollar) itself...all restored.

If crazy Keith gets any crazier he will call for help from Mafia, the Triad, North Korean and Chinese intelligence and even ISIL and Al Qaeda, why not?

You've gotta help us because the commander in chief is from hell and Gott Mit Uns for sure, okay, sacre bleu, tabernac. :shock:

I agree that the situation must become much, MUCH worse before a coup d'etat by the intelligence services could be considered the lesser evil - in either case, it would a crisis of unheard of proportions.

The only possible case would be if it becomes clear that there is plenty of evidence for impeachment and the GOP and DOJ refuse to do anything about it. This is a possibility since Trump, directed by Manaford, might have dragged the GOP much further into the Russia swamp than we know.

But at the current stage, Oberman is the one calling for unlawful and destabilizing actions.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Olbermann. Hard to hear the L. Even harder to hear the 2nd N.

In Nooalf it iz KEx OLBRMaN. No confusion possible if pronounsed clearly.

Hopefully this will be the straw that breaks the English spelling camel'z back!

I actually listened to what Keith Olbermann said and it was nuts. He literally calls for Mi6, the German BND and French Second Bureau .....and ready for it, the Australian Secret Intelligence Service to rescue the USA.

I could not imagine a better scenario, that would entrench Trump forever, than all the foreign intelligence services joining the Russian SVR in manipulating the USA's democratic processes. Anyhow, the Russian SVR is doing such a good job......they don't need anyone's help.

His call for the Russian GRU to also help is simply insane. The GRU is the Russian Army's intelligence service. The GRU shoots first, ask questions and then shoots you again, and your dog, your cat, your neighbours and so on. The KGB is scared of the GRU. :D

Story Time
When Communism fell in Russia, the KGB was broken up, by Boris Yeltsin, into the SVR (foreign service) and FSB (Domestic service). Boris Yeltsin then went to the GRU headquarters to restructure them. They didn't even let him in the building. The GRU has "plays" that span communist and post communist periods.

JO, you've gotta see this!

When Gianforte (Montana GOP house candidate) allegedly body slammed a reporter from the Guardian and then denied it, a FOX reporter who witnessed it set the record straight:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KQwu4wff7lI



By Alicia Acuna
Published May 24, 2017
Fox News

...

Faith, Keith and I arrived early to set up for the interview in a room adjacent to another room where a volunteer BBQ was to take place. As the time for the interview neared, Gianforte came into the room. We exchanged pleasantries...

During that conversation, another man — who we now know is Ben Jacobs of The Guardian — walked into the room with a voice recorder, put it up to Gianforte's face and began asking if him if he had a response to the newly released Congressional Budget Office report on the American Health Care Act. Gianforte told him he would get to him later. Jacobs persisted with his question. Gianforte told him to talk to his press guy, Shane Scanlon.

At that point, Gianforte grabbed Jacobs by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the man, as he moved on top the reporter and began yelling something to the effect of "I'm sick and tired of this!"...






(There's a Keith in the story - so it's not entirely offtopic... :mrgreen: )
