Dec. 19, 2016 By Jack Jodell, American Dissident (in association with the gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog site Fair and UNbalanced. com – see my Blogroll at the lower right hand column of this page).
Happy Monday, everybody. For a man who hasn’t even taken office yet, Trump has certainly managed to dominate the news with one outrageous statement, action, or suggested cabinet nominee after another. The word eccentric comes to mind when thinking about him, but even it fails to adequately describe his true audaciousness. His capacity for provoking incredulity seems boundless, and there is never a dull moment when discussing or dissecting him.
The delusional Trump has refused to take part in daily intelligence briefings, believing they are too repetitious and that he supposedly is “smart” enough to know the score on international and security events on his own, without outside help. This is similar to the same ignorance and arrogance George W. Bush displayed nearly one month prior to the horrific 9/11 attacks. We can only hope that Trump’s refusal to learn and be aware will not end similarly. In today’s podcast, Burr Deming relates the various triumphs and mistakes American Intelligence has had over the decades, and gives both liberals’ and conservatives’ criticisms of that community. He also slyly sums up Trump’s ignorant outlook.
Burr says, “Conservatives attack US intelligence for revealing uncomfortable facts.
Liberals have criticized when the CIA has turned out to be wrong.
Our new President has a new reason.
He declines to attend intelligence briefings because he is already intelligent.”
