If you want to see the face behind this false flag business, look no further than this POS representing the Karzai- or Chalabi-equivalent in Syria ...

He said that back on the campaign trail. And Sessions is gonna follow through.
Quote:
Sessions: Violent crime is surging in American cities. To combat this wave of violence and protect our communities, we need proactive policing. Yet in some cities, such policing is diminishing — with predictably dire results . .

Yet amid this plague of violence, too much focus has been placed on a small number of police who are bad actors rather than on criminals. And too many people believe the solution is to impose consent decrees that discourage the proactive policing that keeps our cities safe. . . .

When proactive policing declines and violent crime rises, minority communities get hit the hardest. We will not sign consent decrees for political expediency that will cost more lives by handcuffing the police instead of the criminals. Every neighborhood needs to be safe and peaceful..

Somehow within the 1st 100 days he has managed to piss off long-standing allies, and his only friend is Russia (despite the obvious fake sabre-rattling).
Maybe he'll give Alaska back to the Russians as payment for their support during the elections. Of course that's including Palin.

Interesting. There was another article posted on the subject a week or two ago, arguing that sarin was not used. That appears to have been debunked. Now we get this, which appears to be connected to RT. I'm not sure whether there is any substance to this, or whether we're just getting another wave of "Truthers."

Huh? I know there isn't. The point is that he promoted the first 100 days constantly before he became president and after he became president. Now that we're almost at the 100 day mark and he has no legislative accomplishments, he complains about it.

Ya, that comment was directed at Trump.

It'd be great if the President of our country was more concerned about actually doing his job rather than media coverage of how he's doing his job.

Seems like his analysis is not credible based on sourced material in that reddit thread.

He also doesn't appear to be a "truther", just consistent on things like this across all administrations.... consistently wrong.

Hey, remember when AG Sessions knowingly violated 18 U.S. Code § 1001 on multiple occasions during his confirmation hearings? That was great ...

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/18/politics/jeff-sessions-racism-allegations/
Quote:
As the US attorney in Mobile, Alabama, Jeff Sessions was talking over a case one day in the 1980s with two fellow prosecutors.
It had to do with a young black man who had been kidnapped and brutally murdered by two members of the Ku Klux Klan.

The Klansmen, Henry Hayes and Tiger Knowles, slit the victim's throat and hung his body from a tree.

They carried out the attack in retribution for a jury acquitting a black man in the slaying of a white police officer.


As Sessions learned that some members of the Klan had smoked marijuana on the evening of the slaying, he said aloud that he thought the KKK was: "OK until I found out they smoked pot."

Not really serious, I think he is just an ignorant and arrogant jerk.

Knows nothing of 1st century 'Korea' and the three kingdoms. Typical. Coming from the man (and his administration) who struggles with the past three centuries of American History.

Quote:
The United States will not make an exception for American companies, including oil major Exxon Mobil Corp, seeking to drill in areas prohibited by U.S. sanctions on Russia, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on Friday.

"In consultation with President Donald J. Trump, the Treasury Department will not be issuing waivers to U.S. companies, including Exxon, authorizing drilling prohibited by current Russian sanctions," Mnuchin said in a statement.

The Russians are not his friends. He may have business interests there but he has business interests in a lot of places: including wholesome democratic countries like turkey and Azerbaijan. Anyway, Russia is not the bogeyman some may want us to believe.

As far as the gosint site, the MIT professor seems to be taking a scientific approach to this issue. Not a bias one.
