Trump Breaks a Tradition Followed by the Past 7 Presidents — People Are Furious

The President’s daily briefing is one of the most important pieces of information.

He is obligated to read it on a daily basis.

But the people have just found out that President Donald Trump doesn’t read it.

Instead, President Donald Trump prefers to have briefings read aloud because he does not want to read the whole report himself. Apparently, reading is not President Trump’s “preferred” style of “learning.” The briefing is top-secret and is written by top-level analysts predominantly from the CIA.

According to our source, IJR, the briefing details the most pressing national security issues of that day and it is compiled from the United States’ vast network of intelligence-gathering capabilities. The current head of the CIA, Mike Pompeo, does not have a problem with how President Donald Trump wishes to consume the reports and has praised him for his comprehension.

“I have seen 25-year intelligence professionals receive briefings. I would tell you that President Trump is the kind of recipient of our information at the same level that they are,” Pompeo said.

The former head of the CIA, Leon Panetta, does not hold such an optimistic appraisal of President Trump’s chosen method of learning.

“Something will be missed. If for some reason his instincts on what should be done are not backed up by the intelligence because he hasn’t taken the time to read that intel, it increases the risk that he will make a mistake.

You can have the smartest people around you — in the end it still comes down to his decision.”

“I don’t have to be told — you know, I’m, like, a smart person. I don’t have to be told the same thing in the same words every single day for the next eight years,” Trump said. “Could be eight years — but eight years. I don’t need that.”

    Trump has read enough legal and business contracts for a lifetime. He is a self made businessman. He has already proven his IQ is lt. years ahead of obummer/Bush and Clinton. He is sharp as a tack. I am guessing he may be signing and doing other things as he listens and absorbs the briefings. He is the energizer bunny; he multi-tasks, keeps on working and has more energy than everyone else while running for President. I have complete confidence in him, he has already shaken the idiots up and turned the tables over to benefit the US and all of us. Love this President. He is beyond sharp, one step ahead of the idiot politicians and low IQ media commies.

      The Government Accountability Institute, a watchdog non-profit organization,calculatedthe number of times Obama has received daily oral intelligence briefings, or the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB). The group found that as of Sept. 29, the President had attended 42.4 percent of PDBs during his first term and 41.3 percent during his second term.

      The report came days after Obama told 60 Minutes that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has “underestimated” the strength of Islamic State, the militant group currently the target of US-led airstrikeson its holdings in Syria and Iraq.

        The staffer added that Obama has been warned of Islamic State for years.
        “Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president’s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,” the security staffer said.

Blanton, director of the National Security Archive at George Washington University, said there has been “lots of variation in the briefing patterns” among presidents, with varying degrees of engagement no matter if the president received oral briefings or preferred written reports.
        For instance, George W. Bush “wanted personal and oral, and that matched CIA’s institutional interest in face to face with the president, much better for their bureaucratic politics, but unclear how good it was for presidential decision making,” Blanton said. “On Iraq WMD [weapons of mass destruction], the direct brief was clearly pernicious; reading might have pointed to the dissents, but the briefers did not.” THAT TELLS US PLENTY OF THE LACK OF AN IQ WITH OBAMA

      So true. This man has read millions of legal contracts, written them and his grades in college prove he is an avid reader. I agree with you 100%. When listening he can stop them and ask questions if he wants to. He is sharp, quite a few steps above the Pres. we have had. He may be the only Pres. sitting in office with the credentials to be there; a Businessman, proven by working his entire life OUTSIDE of gvt. We have had nothing but politicians and crooked lawyers running the country into the ground. Love our President, someone brilliant with a steel backbone and love of America. Yeah!

      Obama didn’t even attend the meetings or listen to his advisors for 8 friggin years!! Some people wonder why Trump is facing a North Korea untamed, or the middle east ISIS situation. On the flipside, Trump has done and is doing a heck of a job as he straightens out Obama’s mess in all phases of the job as President.!! Actually, Obama wasn’t doing his job and what he did, he screwed up!! Namely, North Korea by ignoring it, and Iran by giving away the Ranch, and Syria by drawing red lines he ignored after Assad crossed them. A total joke!! Gob Bless Donald Trump for having the Strength and Heart to do what is right no matter what the left throws at him for it.

    THIS STORY IS A BIG FAT LIE..Obama skipped most of his daily intelligence briefings – Govt Accountability Institute​US President Barack Obama has attended only 42 percent of his daily intelligence briefings since assuming office more than five and a half years ago, according to a new study.

    The Government Accountability Institute, a watchdog non-profit organization,calculatedthe number of times Obama has received daily oral intelligence briefings, or the Presidential Daily Brief (PDB). The group found that as of Sept. 29, the President had attended 42.4 percent of PDBs during his first term and 41.3 percent during his second term.

    The report came days after Obama told 60 Minutes that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper has “underestimated” the strength of Islamic State, the militant group currently the target of US-led airstrikeson its holdings in Syria and Iraq.

    “I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” Obama said.

    The statement infuriated some in the intelligence and defense communities. One anonymous former senior Pentagon officialtoldthe Daily Beast that Obama is surely getting valuable information about Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, from intelligence reports.

    “Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” said the former official who is familiar with jihadist actions in Syria and Iraq.

    After a previous tally of PDB attendancein 2012, the White Housesaidthat Obama alwaysreceives a copyof such intelligence reports on his secure iPad, and that the White House public schedule is, at times, inconsistent with how and when the President’s daily meetings and events are announced or termed.

    “It’s pretty well-known that the president hasn’t taken in-person intelligence briefings with any regularity since the early days of 2009,” an Obama national security staffer told theDaily Mailon Monday. “He gets them in writing.”

    The staffer added that Obama has been warned of Islamic State for years.

    “Unless someone very senior has been shredding the president’s daily briefings and telling him that the dog ate them, highly accurate predictions about ISIL have been showing up in the Oval Office since before the 2012 election,” the security staffer said.

    Meanwhile, according to an account of CIA history written by John L. Helgerson, Ronald Reagan rarely received the PDB from an intelligence official.

    “Thinking back over the eight years of the two Reagan administrations, the Agency’s briefing officer remembered only one or two occasions when the National Security Adviser took him into the Oval Office to brief the President directly.”

    In contrast, former CIA director George H.W. Bush, Reagan’s vice president and eventual successor in the Oval Office, pored over intelligence reports and received the oral briefing. Overall, Helgerson wrote that he had a remarkable relationship with the intelligence community.

    The previous attendance report came just one day before US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, among others, was killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi by Islamic militants, igniting further criticism of how Obama processes national intelligence reports.

    Everyone has their own style of learning: reading, audio, demonstration, video, etc. I think if he knows how he learns best, good for him. I learn best by performing the task at hand. Does that mean I, too, am a 5th grader. I am a RN with a Master’s degree. If you ask most RN’s, you will likely get the same response, that they need to perform the task. Smart people generally know how they need to learn. So, please don’t fault us for that. Support our method of learning. How do you learn best? Don’t they ask you that when you go into the hospital?

Breaking: Kim Jong Un Surrenders, Sends Letter to White House, Trump Wins North Korea

On Thursday, President Donald Trump teased a big announcement related to North Korea.

He said that South Korea will be making a “major statement” about North Korea.

This is major.

The North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has invited President Donald Trump to meet and he agreed. South Korean National Security Adviser Chung Eui-Yong, who led a delegation to Pyongyang for talks with senior North Korean leadership, briefed the White House on the recent meeting in North Korea’s capital.

According to our source, America News Central, Chung said that North Korea is committed to denuclearization and stressed that Kim expressed “his eagerness to meet President Trump as soon as possible.” The South Korean envoy revealed that “President Trump appreciated the greeting and said he would meet Kim Jong un by May to achieve permanent denuclearization.”

This announcement represents a significant development given that last summer, President Donald Trump was threatening North Korea with “fire and fury,” and a total destruction while Kim was warning that he would tame the president with fire.

 

It is unclear why North Korea is deciding to pursue dialogue now, but there is evidence that North Korea is struggling under the weight of the president’s maximum pressure strategy. There are serious concerns about the “military option.” As Kim Jong un aspires to survive Donald Trump’s presidency, these factors may be affect him in making a decision.

At the same time, Kim Jong un has repeatedly heralded North Korea’s emergence as a nuclear power, so it is unclear whether Kim is approaching his landmark meeting for a position of confidence or desperation. South Korea credits President Donald Trump for his remarkable moment, as Chung explained that the president’s “leadership and his maximum pressure policy together with international solidarity brought us to this juncture.”

9th Circuit Court Stabs POTUS in the Back, Rules Children Can Sue Trump for Most Idiotic Reason Ever

Lawyers have a joke about the craziest courts in the country, for nuttiest decisions.

One of the courts that lands high on the list is the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

And they just managed to outdo themselves.

A federal appeals court ruled on Wednesday in favor of 21 children and young adults suing the U.S. government for not doing enough to protect their constitutional right to a stable climate. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judges refused to grant mandamus relief and block the U.S. District Court in Oregon from hearing the suit, which was filed by the environmental group Our Children’s Trust in 2015.

According to our source, America News Central, President Donald Trump’s Administration and oil and gas groups appealed the decision in June 2017. They asked the judges to “end this clearly improper attempt to have the judiciary decide important questions of energy and environmental policy,” and upset the balance of powers. The Ninth Circuit disagreed with it.

Julia Olson, Our Children’s Trust  chief counsel, said that the ruling gives a “green light for trial.” Julia’s case on behalf of the young people argues constitutional rights to life, liberty and property are being violated by the federal government’s failure to enact policies to stop the global warming.

Applying the public trust doctrine to global warming was a way to “circumvent unfavorable political outcomes with legal actions, which runs afoul of non-justiciability limitations,” a 2014 Dartmouth Law Review article by Andrew Ballentine argued.

The Ninth acknowledges that the claims are overboard and recognize “some of the remedies the plaintiffs seek may not be available as redress.” Just like the kids from Parkland, Florida, it is not really just kids behind this. The adults supporting this push, using kids as a front, are the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

THIS Sanctuary City Just Got A HUGE $178 MILLION Surprise Straight From The President — BOOM!

Sanctuary cities will be gone soon.

And all the Liberal mayors who have defied the United States law for the past eight years are going to be very sorry.

This is huge.

While some mayors have seen the light and come over to President Donald Trump‘s side, some of them resisted. Maybe because they can’t imagine that there will be real consequences. Austin, the most Liberal city in Texas, a state that is otherwise completely Red, its sheriff has defied both federal law and the governor for some time.

According to our source, My Right America, Travis County Sheriff  “Sanctuary Sally” Hernandez has fallen out of the graces of Governor Abbott, who has stated that if she continues to defy the rule of law, he will cut off millions of dollars to the county. Texas Governor Greg Abbott made abolishing sanctuary jurisdictions in Texas an emergency item for this year’s legislative session and a bill is speeding through, that would enforce the move.

Sheriff Hernandez is about to create a catastrophe for Austin. They could use $125 million in state and federal grants. “Travis County currently receives $125 million in state and federal grants that flow through the Office of the Governor,” Governor Abbott’s spokesman John Wittman said on Tuesday. “The governor’s office is currently evaluating how much of that $125 million could be taken away under SB4.”

The S.B.4 legislation, contains provisions to cut funding from any “local entity,” refusing to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

“A local entity may not receive state grant funds if the entity adopts, enforces, or endorses a policy under which the entity prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws or, by consistent actions, prohibits or discourages the enforcement of immigration laws.”

BREAKING: 12 Hrs After Trump Pardoned Him, Freed Sailor Makes Shocking Admission – WATCH!

In 2009, U.S Sailor Kristian Saucier’s life took a turn for the worse after he took nine photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.

He was arrested and convicted of being in possession of  “unauthorized retention of national defense information,” which is a felony in 2016.

But, President Donald Trump pardoned him and ended the nightmare that plagued him for so long.

President Donald Trump is keeping his promises to not only make America great again, but to right the many wrongs that occurred under the presidency of Barack Obama and his Administration. Among the mistakes was the arrest of U.S. Sailor Kristian Saucier, for taking photos of the inside of the USS Alexandria.

According to our source, Daily Vine, at the time of the arrest, Saucier was enjoying a stellar career in the Navy and was looking forward to serve for more years. Now he is free, and he is speaking out about the circumstances surrounding his prosecution and the double standard to which he was held to.

“The president has pardoned Kristian Saucier, a Navy submariner. Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service-members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit. The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country,” Sarah Sanders said at a press conference.

“That was the press secretary yesterday,” Fox News reporter Pete Hegseth said. “Well, former Navy machinist joins us now for an exclusive interview. Sir, thank you very much for joining. What it must have felt like today… to wake up as a free man. You were a felon yesterday. Today you’re free. How are you feeling?” he asked.

“Pretty good,” Saucier said. “We’re very grateful to the president for following through with his promise to help our family out. He is an amazing man, and this is just one of the many great things that he’s done in his term. You know, I got to speak with him briefly yesterday and what an amazing guy. Just to be able to take time out of his busy schedule to speak with me and to turn my family’s life around and give us our lives back.”

“This case could have been handled at a much lower level within the military, as it should have been because I was active duty at the time and I would have taken my punishment the same way — like a man. I made a mistake when I was a young kid, it was a misguided attempt to have some mementos, and it should have never reached the level like it did. And I believe President Trump saw that and he spoke about my case.”

“It was a clear attempt by the Department of Justice… under Obama to use me as a scapegoat to take the heat off Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information,” Saucier added.

Home Depot Founder Risks Entire Company With Shock Announcement – Trump’s DOING IT Anyway!

Major retailers around the nation have become battlegrounds for political correctness.

They used their businesses to make social statements.

It is not very wise to polarize your customer base with a divisive stance.

Home Depot’s competition, Lowe’s, has proven to stay true to their values and the American citizens, especially our nation’s heroes and their families. Their counterpart has received some pretty bad press over the past three years, regarding an apparent disrespect for the military. Most of this seemed to occur at the store level and not a decision condoned or approved by the corporation especially since the CEO of the home improvement is a major President Donald Trump supporter, which is a fact that the founder has not been shy about.

According to our source, Daily Vine, the Home Depot Foundation, a leadership arm for the company founded by Bernie Marcus, Arthur Blank and with the help of Ken Langone, hammered down on its pledge to closing the gap among skilled laborers in America. It announce that it would commit $50 million to train 20.000 tradespeople over the next ten years, starting with separating military and veterans, in a n effort to reduce the number of unfilled construction sector jobs in the United States.

“We want to bring shop class back, from coast-to-coast,” Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to train 20,000 next-generation plumbers, electricians, carpenters and beyond. It’s a true honor to welcome our first classes of separating soldiers as they transition to civilian life and into successful careers in the trades.”

Our country needs to see more of this and it will, within the next four years under President Donald Trump’s leadership. He praises our military all the time and that is how it should be.
