Brennan would never politicize our intelligence, amirite?

Trump has a new job for Gavin Schmidt of GISS and RealClimate: Monitoring the rectal temps of polar bears.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

When a government institution's collective memory and competence no longer offset it's incompetence, meddling and bureaucratic self interest it is almost always time to junk it and start over from scratch rather than trying to reform the unreformable.
The CIA reached that point at least a couple of decades ago.

dublindave

FROM THE LAST THREAD(cause I'm kinda egotistical)

"But isn't it ironically partisan to take an objective intelligence finding and then to spin it as a political hit job simply because it damages the legitimacy of your chosen candidate" --DD


"When it leaked to the press, it stopped being "objective . . ."' --some idiot

Eh, yeah, no it didn't. Unless your websters definition of the word 'objective' is completely different to mine. How information is delivered or why it's delivered does not change the substance of the information itself.

See, as a dopey ignorant drunken mick living in a florida trailer this is also why I hate Trump. He has no basic street smarts. If the most power intelligence gathering/career destroying ,assassinating agency in the world says that Russia was plotting to install you into the Whitehouse...... don't hit back at them........agree with them.Thank then for their tireless dedication and order an investigation into said attack and THAT....JUST THAT..puts a muzzle on the C.I.A doggies. Any move they make against you thereafter appears partisan in nature, something they'll avoid at all costs
Questioning the validity of their findings only gives them an excuse to validate their findings......over a period of months, years.

No street smarts this trump guy. It's why these rich guys don't make good politicians.....they never had to survive on the streets. To placate a man who is a threat to you without appearing weak is an artform.

dublindave

Damn, I'm on fire today....Mozart, taliskers,politics........the sun is shining and Trump is imploding....it's a good day to be alive(be even better If the person who won the election by 3 million votes were in power).

I knew there would be a new thread, the second after I hit "POST" in the last thread, so I hope folks don't mind if I bring it over here.

cheerleader:

The difference between fake news and real news is often subtle. Unfortunately, combining the two produces some of the most effective propaganda of all. Your two paragraphs, my emphasis:

"The two top Republicans in Congress offered strong support for the intelligence community Monday, in sharp contrast to President-elect Donald Trump’s attack on the CIA after reports the agency found that the Russian government tried to help him win the presidency.

McConnell singled out the Central Intelligence Agency for praise and said the Senate Intelligence and Armed Services panels will investigate findings by intelligence agencies that Russia hacked into e-mails and computers used in the presidential campaign."

One of these things is not like the other. As far as I know, the conclusions about the Russian government's motives in paragraph one came from a single anonymous "senior administration official" who was tellingly not even identified as a member of the "intelligence community." This is such a typical Dem tactic. If they can husband something into the MSM, no matter how sketchy the source, they can run with it forever after (remember those bigly debunked Iraq casualty figures that the Lancet put out?). After that it's conflation, conflation, conflation. A media outlet combines the CIA findings and the Senior Official's opinion in the same article, et voila you get John Podesta in the NPR story linked earlier by the Iconographer:
"We now know that the CIA has determined Russia's interference in our elections was for the purpose of electing Donald Trump. This should distress every American," Podesta continued.
This kind of thing goes on all the time, and it drives me crazy. Just the other day someone at a major outlet casually substituted "voter suppression measures" for voter I.D. legislation, as if the two were simply interchangeable terms.

GUS

Rodham was a HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL Sec State. She drank with a lot of despots and leaders.
Certainly RODHAM would be aware of other NATIONS trying to HACK AMERICANS.

Yet the IGNORANT MONEY GRUBBING BITCH decided to put hers and THE RAPISTS info and SERVER in the SHITTER at a small I.T. firm in DENVER.

In re: your comment on Russia on the last page. Here is a bit of the Obama Administration's incompetence and corruption on display: they meet in April 2014 with Wall Street fund managers to discuss the administration's Russia sanctions policy. The article has the most positive spin ... I'm sure one could spin it more negatively (which would be a more fair interpretation).

Really enjoyed last nights thread re: Fag 1.

I don't remember if I every ask you if you knew Mike Reynolds, USN?

He was ManTran's primary and my instrument instructor here in Columbus.

Sometime I will tell you about practicing ILS approaches in severe icing conditions. Mike thought it was a good idea to learn how to manage the pucker factor:)

I think, if memory serves me correct, he flew and instructed Tomcats.

great comment JM Hanes.

JM Hanes

DuDa:

"So, where are you on figuring out Russia's desire to roll back the 2014 sanctions against them?"

I'm for making sure we get something big in return for it, if we do -- unlike our feckless current Prez, who repeatedly caved to Putin for nothing at all.

"How information is delivered or why it's delivered does not change the substance of the information itself."

Yeah,I wouldn't try to take on my statement either. It's one of those pieces of logic that's set in stone. Moving on is a good call.

The answers could be yes, and yes. Or - brace yourself for a Brave Insight - it may be more complicated.

I strongly suspect it is. But in any event, it ought not be playing out in the press. As laughable as our information security is, our operational security is often worse.

dublindave

sorry...sorry...they're....taliskers....sorry

The truth, nothing but the truth, but I don't dare admit the whole truth.

Iggy, I'm pretty sure Steve still lets him post @ Climate Audit. Steve's amazingly tolerant of dissent, and Nick is not abusive. He's a died in the wool alarmist and is nicknamed 'Racehorse' after the Haynes, for his single-minded defense of the alarmist catechism. He is extremely bright, very sharp, and well behaved, so has earned a lot of respect from the skeptical crowd.

He can run his defense to absurdity, though and won't give up. He just goes silent.

All in all, one of the better of the alarmist agents. I've seen him comment @ Judy's, Andy's, and the Bish's, as well as others.

rse

Just discovered yet another reason Bill Kristol was so peevish about Trump. Turns out back in 2015 he set up an initiative called Project 2017 that would reform conservatism to be about the wellbeing of Main Street Americans. The Republican Party was to change accordingly and the term used was the Reformacons.

Ooops. All those plans. Popped out when I was looking for something else.

You know I'm almost considering moving back to Ireland. Ireland, home of the weakest most subservient people in the history of the human race...a people who welcomed 800 years of being fucked in the ass and starved without a single rock being thrown back at their oppressors.

But this Russian capitulation on the right is almost equaling that of their mick counterparts.


The Irish had no weapons or training. What's ya'lls excuse?

The administration blamed North Korea for the Sony hack when good information was available that it was a terminated Sony insider working with outside hackers.

DebinNC

Bloomberg's fake-news headline of article JMH quoted: "McConnell Backs CIA Despite Trumps Attacks Over Hacking Probe" ... All the rapid spread of disinformation requires is a memorable headline. The content may be murky but the headline, which becomes the talking point, is crystal clear.

clarice

™, way too complicated and subtle for me this afternoon,

Good times, and the skies were not cloudy all day.

Heh, Iggy, there are a number of other commenters who've been run off in the manner you describe, and they've usually been run off by commenters exposing just exactly their lack of snuffiness about math and statistics or their plethora of pestilence.

My favorite line over there, at least a decade ago, was when someone suggested that I'd wandered into the wrong classroom and my response was that I was just auditing the course.

clarice

JMH--I reposted that on FB--it is so good!

The worm breathes fire and smoke, and sparks fly from its eyes.

EB, do you suppose Trump can connect the great energy/climate delusion with the propagandizing in education and see the danger looming there, as you've so elegantly unearthed.

Very clear, JMH. So clear I passed it out to my editors. Thank you.

FAKE, BUT ACCURATE.

The DNC hacks were most likely a DNC insider and once they got into the wild other people were hacked. Don't send passwords in an email and don't set your password "password".

YIKES.

Why the Dems, after years of a warm and cozy relationship with Russia would now want to blame them for everything, is puzzling?

rse

Uncovering was hard kim but what is actually going on is easy to describe now.

I am just taking a brief mental break from a new report that I am having a fun time blasting in the margins. My concentration is still strained and I simply started dealing with my husband's other groomsmen directly. At least there is to be a memorial service this weekend. For a while there was speculation on waiting until after the holidays. That would have been haunting.

Ah Dublin Dave---talking about street smarts.

If you really are living in a trailer in a Florida trailer park (instead of your Mom's basement), let me suggest that "street smarts" can be found just a couple of blocks outside the entrance to your trailer park--you ain't got em.

As for devaluing the CIA's credibility as "not smart" on Trump's part? The various assessment and intelligence failures on the part of the CIA going over the last 30 years long ago put the agency's credibility in the dumper.

Hillary was trumpeting some nonsense during the campaign as "agreed upon by all of the nation's 17 intelligence agencies". Okay, if there actually are 17 US intelligence agencies--a proliferation that beggars imagination, it's fair to say that the CIA doesn't lead the pack.

GUS

Deb, you hit on something.

The bloomberg quote says TRUMP ATTACKED.

NO, Trump "responded".

I'll tell you something. Trump is NOT going to FORGET this. There is going to be payback.

jimmyk

"This kind of thing goes on all the time, and it drives me crazy."

Me too, but it's entirely the fault and responsibility of the media. Just as I said about Palmieri, I expect political hacks like Podesta to lie and spin. There is no excuse for media lapdogs to spread his BS around. If a conservative does it they are all over it with "fact-checking," often even when it's true. But for Dems they are, to use a recently fashionable word, stenographers.

"Fake dub don't know nuthin' about the Irish and resistance"


Yeah, you really got me on the whole resistance front.


The big resistance. Busted.

My only brush with the IRA came in 92 when I beat the shit out of a guy who turned out to be Martin cahill's newphew. If you lived in the inner city/rathmines or ranaleigh in 92, that's was one person you didn't want to kick the shit out of.


Anyway, I escaped being nailed to a pool table because a friend of mine was in the 'real IRA'(low-level) and asked if I could get a pass. I did, but only on condition I meet the general and his crew in a rathmines pub on a Saturday night.

Thinking you're about to be crucified sharpens the mind. I met the man a had a few beers and did some acid(true story) and he leaned over to me at about 10.30 and said "Get the fuck outa here before I change me mind"


Don't ever question my Dublin credentials again. I'm not IRA, but they did help me out of a bind.

Can anyone who paid attention during the Bush Administration still believe the CIA is a neutral, non-political, player? George Tenant? The infamous Iran NIE? Poor Porter Goss was another one of the people I fault GWBush for abandoning in situ. Who can forget John Negroponte's machinations?

I'm not contending that the CIA is a predictable tool of the left. I'm just saying let's not forget that they are also a DC bureaucracy in fear of swamp draining. Thanks again to George Bush, they also have to defend their position in the middle of an even larger bureaucratic-intel tangle. We've got the CIA now operating within the U.S., and the F.B.I. operating internationally..... All currently led by a Bigly Doofus.

To get an idea of the scope of the mess, just take a good look at the whole United States Intelligence Community concept, starting with the members & their "parent agencies." Or if you like pretty graphics, there's this visualization of Intel Community funding:

http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2016/12/trump-may-have-america-but-the-city-is-still-ours.html

The city was always an asylum. On television on Election Night, the world they used was bubble. But what a bubble.

New Yorkers woke up on November 8 in what seems now like a fairy-tale fog, convinced, as ever, that the future belonged to us. By midnight, the world looked very different, the country very far away (and the future, too). Eighty percent of us had voted against the man who won, and 80 percent, it seemed, were already hatching plans to leave — for Canada or Berlin or anywhere else we imagined we could live safely among the like-minded. That was when the text messages began coming in from old friends in Wisconsin and Texas and North Carolina and Missouri. They were watching the same returns we were, in the same apocalyptic panic, and all making desperate plans to come to New York. For them, the city was still the same fairy tale.

And for us, those 80 percent in denial and despair, the city itself was a consolation. The human traffic on the streets that next morning was funereal, but it did proceed, commuters stuffed shoulder-­to-shoulder on subway cars, crying. More amazing, here: They were looking each other in the eye as they bawled. There were hugs among strangers, and many more bleary-eyed nods, on streets that seemed dusted with ash. It was a bubble, of course, but after the election, the city unbubbled us too — popped us out of our blister packs of despair.

What utter bathos. And I love every word of it.
