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.

        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

      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.

Sobbing Shooting Victim Takes Over Live Broadcast And Silences Reporter Who Tried To Lie On Air

In less than a year, our country has had three mass shootings that have taken the lives of hundreds of innocent people.

It seems like there is no end in sight.

And of course, the left has already begun to politicize the new tragedy in Florida to sway public opinions their way.

Another mass shooter, Nikolas Cruz, has struck at a Florida High School, murdering 17 innocent lives and injuring more than 20 others. The CNN reporter interviewed one of the survived victims, David Hogg, a 17-year old senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. She was trying to bait him into saying that we needed more gun control, but he was not biting and instead, he said that something needs to be done to make the schools in America safer, but he never called for gun control.

“There was a tsunami of people running in one specific direction away from something,” he said, “and that’s what we were doing. It was almost like there was a shark coming along and we were a school of fish. And we were running from that armed man.” A janitor appeared, he said and began to wave. “Stop, stop! Go over here!”

According to our source, Freedom Daily, the school chef opened the door to her office and hurried the teenagers in. There were around 50 students crowded into the office. They turned to their phones and began the terrifying experience of watching a school shooting through their news apps.

“On a national scale, I’m not surprised at all,” he said of the shooting. “And that’s just sad. The fact that a student is not surprised that there was another mass shooting — but this time it was at his school — says so much about the current state that our country is in, and how much has to be done.”

“The violence must stop,” he said, issuing a call to pressure lawmakers to act to make schools safer.

“We need to do something. We need to get out there and be politically active. Congress needs to get over their political bias with each other and work toward saving children’s lives.”

“We’re children,” he said. “You guys are the adults.”

Fox News Execs Just Got Brutal News For Firing O’Reilly, They’re In Trouble

Fox News is one of the most popular networks so far.

But all of the shake-ups have put in a place of real vulnerability.

The network took a big gamble by removing former former chairman Roger Ailes.

These executives just took what is arguably a really big risk by firing the network’s biggest star Bill O’Reilly. With him not being in Fox News anymore, the business decision-makers at Fox News just got hit with some very harsh news. Without Bill O’Reilly and his fan base, these executives are looking forward at a rating free fall and the potential that conservative viewers will abandon the Fox News network, in favor of looking for more up-to-date conservative news outlets, mostly on the web. You could say O’Reilly could get the sweetest revenge watching Fox News’ ratings go down

According to our source, Conservative 101, this is what New York Times writer Jim Rutenberg said about O’Reilly’s viewers, “First there is Mr. O’Reilly’s own audience, which steadfastly stuck with him — and then some — as the revelations about sexual harassment first emerged in The New York Times. For as long as he has been ‘looking out for’ them — as he puts it — he has sworn to beat back the ‘secular progressive’ forces of political correctness.”

He added, “His fans told interviewers they doubted the allegations against him, describing him as an ‘easy target’ for liberal groups and the same mainstream media he has made a career of lambasting.” Chris Ruddy, CEO of Fox News’ conservative rival Newsmax Media, agreed that Fox News is now in a really big trouble. Ruddy said, “Generally, the Fox audience is not going to be happy the network fired him. They’re going to think it was unfair.”

Ben Stein Blasts CNN To Their Faces And Exposes Their True Motives, They Are Stunned

The mainstream media always tries to interrupt President Donald Trump in his work.

They have been flipping out over his decision of not attending the White House Correspondents dinner.

But, Ben Stein is here to protect his decision and shut the mouths of all liberals.

The former Nixon and Ford speechwriter Ben Stein, said that the mainstream media is only looking for a scandal with President Donald Trump and they want to do to him just like they did to former President Richard Nixon. Stein explained that it makes sense why President Donald Trump decided not to attend the White House Correspondents dinner. He would have been the mainstream media’s punching bad again. The media would have twisted his words and create fake stories with him being the villain.

“Look, every day you pick up The New York Times, every day they’re slamming, slamming, slamming Trump. I’m a great fan of CNN. I watch it quite faithfully, every day CNN is slamming him, slamming him, slamming him. Every day, they’re looking for a scandal. They’re just turning the woods upside down looking for a scandal. They’re hoping, I think, to do to him what they did to Nixon a long time ago. And, you know, still haven’t found any real scandals,” Stein stated.

According to our source, Conservative 101, CNN’s Brianna Keillar asked him what he thought of President Donald Trump calling the media “the enemy of the American people.” Ben did not respond.

“With all due respect, I don’t blame him for being furious at them. And I think he’s got a lot of company. I’m out there giving speeches all around the country all the time, an awful lot of people are not great fans of the media, and they see the media as an unelected aristocracy … who are dumping all over the mainstream of America.”

Obama’s Political Comeback Comes To Sudden Halt After Air Force Officer Exposes His Nasty Secret

Retired Air Force Captain Joni Marquez revealed a huge secret about Barack Obama.

She revealed that Obama caused the deaths of 38 soldiers in Afghanistan.

This has been one of the deadliest attack on NAVY SEALS in U.S. history.

Marquez said that if Barack Obama did not compromise the safety of these SEALS, to protect lives of the Muslim terrorists, these soldiers would have been alive today. The attack on these soldiers took place six years ago on August 6, On this day, Marquez and her crew were working on their AC-130 gunship, when they were told to take part in a mission that she described as “almost like a 9-1-1 type of a situation.”

According to our source, Red Nation Now, the gunship was ordered to fly close-in air support above Afghanistan’s dangerous Tangi Valley, in Wardak Province, assisting troops with the Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment who were being fired on by eight heavily armed Taliban insurgents.

The Rangers had called in for assault helicopters to engage the enemy hiding among the rock valley. The air weapons team fired on the Taliban fighters, but not all of the insurgents were killed. Marquez explained that what should have been a simple mission of taking out terrorists never occurred, as Obama’s generals never gave the gunship permission to fire on them.

“We had seen two of the insurgents moving, crawling away from the area, as to not really make a whole lot of scene.” Marquez then said to the ground commander,”“You have two enemy forces that are still alive,” she said. “Permission to engage.” She and her team tracked the enemy insurgents, watching as they head to a village, where they rallied more terrorists to join them in their fight.

“If we would’ve been allowed to engage that night, we would’ve taken out those two men immediately”

“I won’t rest until some kind of justice is served, in a manner of either, you know, the people that were responsible for that night, for making those calls, come forward and are honest about it…”
