He said ‘I have a secret plan,’ and then he said, ‘I know more than all the generals about ISIL,’ and then he said ‘I’m going to call the generals to help me figure out a plan,’ and finally he said, ‘I’m going to fire all the generals.’
President-elect Donald J. Trump, expressing lingering skepticism about intelligence assessments of Russian interference in the election, said on Saturday evening, December 31, that he knew “things that other people don’t know” about the hacking, and the information would be revealed “on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
“I know a lot about hacking. And hacking is a very hard thing to prove. So it could be somebody else. And I also know things that other people don’t know, and so they cannot be sure of the situation.”
When asked what he knew that others did not, Mr. Trump demurred, saying only, “You’ll find out on Tuesday or Wednesday.”
Mr. Trump, who does not use email, also advised people to avoid computers when dealing with delicate material.
“It’s very important, if you have something really important, write it out and have it delivered by courier, the old-fashioned way, because I’ll tell you what, no computer is safe,” Mr. Trump said.
“I don’t care what they say, no computer is safe,” he added. “I have a boy who’s 10 years old; he can do anything with a computer. You want something to really go without detection, write it out and have it sent by courier.”
Watch Keith Olbermann’s Epic Response To Trump Saying “Millions Voted Illegally” To Steal The Election
Famed sportscaster turned-political pundit Keith Olbermann tore into Donald Trump on today’s episode of the Resistance, slamming Trump for wondering whether the election that he himself won was rigged and into the mainstream media for giving Donald Trump’s absurd conspiracy theories the same coverage they would receive if they were serious concerns.
He also awaits the dexact dimensions of and nature of Mr. Trump’s desperate psychological impairment.” Olbermann rightfully condemned the media for being the “enablers of cataclysm” for their tacit acceptance of Trump’s lies:
This has long since transcended politics, transcended diversions from his corruption, or the FBI, or foreign interference, this is not left vs right, nor liberal vs conservative, nor alt vs inclusive, nor any of the excuses that newspaper and television made Sunday in hopes of preserving the political media complex.
Olbermann is absolutely right.
We must come to terms with this and do something, anything to prevent this unstable megalomaniac from ever tasting true power.
The stage is set for a dramatic showdown at Hofstra University in New York Monday night, September 26, when Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton face off in the first presidential debate of the general election.
Monday night’s debate has three broad themes, according to NBC, each of which will take up a portion of the 90-minute debate:
“America’s Direction,” “Achieving Prosperity,” and “Securing America.”
Five things to watch in Monday, September 26, showdown
Which Trump shows up?
Will the candidates be fact-checked?
How do the scandals come up?
What’s Clinton’s strategy for countering Trump?
Does either of them come across as “likable enough”?
There are laws in some part of this country that make the consumption of marijuana illegal. Yet, the consumption of other products is OK.
There’s a junk food store in almost every corner of the town I live in. I can extrapolate, without fear of being incorrect, that many towns are in a similar position. The same could be said for establishments where alcohol is freely and legally consumed. The same could be said about tobacco (even though not included in the graph). In spite of an active campaign against tobacco use, there is a significant number of smokers in the US.
All of the above mentioned substances are laced with substances that may make their effects on the human body very deleterious.
Cannabinoids are plant-based, that is organic.
Maybe it’s time to really consider eliminating the stigma and the illegal status of THC.
The term medical marijuana refers to using the whole unprocessed marijuana plant or its basic extracts to treat a disease or symptom. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.
However, scientific study of the chemicals in marijuana, called cannabinoids, has led to two FDA-approved medications that contain cannabinoid chemicals in pill form.
Continued research may lead to more medications.
Because the marijuana plant contains chemicals that may help treat a range of illnesses or symptoms, many people argue that it should be legal for medical purposes. In fact, a growing number of states have legalized marijuana for medical use.
