Was Trump selling/giving Vlad/Russia our satellite intel/data that we were giving the Ukrainians ..

.... in their fight with Russia? No doubt we have "eyes in skies" over Ukraine and some of that information might
very well have found its way to the Ukrainian Military and so was Trump selling out America and the Ukrainians too?

On the papers found @ Merde a Logo / TK refers to satellite collection.

Here’s what some of those markings mean:

* HSC-P refers to a product of Human Intelligence (HUMINT).
* HSC-O refers to an operation being conducted with HUMINT.
* TK refers to satellite collection.
* SI-G refers to intercepts from Signals Intelligence (SIGINT).
* FRD refers to former Restricted Data — that is, materials formerly restricted under the Atomic Energy Act. Bill Leonard, the former head of ISOO, explains that this material is still covered by AEA, meaning the President cannot unilaterally declassify it.

FRD is still covered by the Atomic Energy Act. It primarily refers to the military utilization of nuclear weapons and can be handled as classified NSI but it is not NSI and is still covered by the Atomic Energy Act, thus even the President cannot unilaterally declassify.

Thanx to DUer Nevilledog for posting this.

Trump can't run for POTUS in 2024.

Do not fall for any of the Trump, "I'll run again" memes. Trump broke the law in stealing the
classified documents ... aka state secrets ... so he can't run in 2024.

I don't have the exact statute in front of me but by just having that classified information Trump
is now ineligible to run in 2024.

Although, he will still pretend that he wants to run again in order to grift from his rubes.

Good God in Butter MI's Tudor Dixon: There is healing in making a rape vicitim have the baby

I guess I must have missed this but how sick is that?

Tudor Dixon, the GOP nominee for Michigan governor, said rape victims and a child born of rape could form a "bond."

She used this argument to explain why she wouldn't back a a 14-year-old rape victim getting an abortion.

"There was healing through that baby," she said in an interview with Fox 2 Detroit.

Why hasn't the DoJ charged Paul Manafort in his betrayal of America to Russian?

Paul Manafort just admitted to selling out America by passing on the Trump Campaign's data
analytics to the Russian agent Konstantin Kilimnik and that let Russia rat fuck the 2016 elections
and that has gotten almost no press coverage. Manafort justified his actions by saying I did it
for money.

Liberal Media

Trump's pardon of Manafort should not cover those crimes.

A longtime associate of former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign chief Paul Manafort gave Russian intelligence agencies “sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy” during the election that year, the U.S. Treasury Department said.

Manafort’s associate, Konstantin Kilimnik, “also sought to promote the narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, had interfered in the 2016 U.S. presidential election,” the department said Thursday as the Biden administration announced new sanctions on Russia, Kilimnik and others.

Those sanctions relate in part to Russia’s alleged effort to affect the outcome of the 2020 U.S. presidential election.


In an interview with Business Insider, former Donald Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort admitted he was in contact with the Russians and shared information during the former president's 2016 presidential run.

For years, questions have been raised about Russian involvement in the campaign that saw the New York businessman beat former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and Manafort is now stating that he handed polling data over to the Russians -- in particular to "Konstantin Kilimnik, a longtime business associate with suspected ties to Russian intelligence."

According to the report, "Kilimnik then passed the data on to Russian spies, according to the US Treasury Department, which has characterized the data as 'sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy.'"

In the interview, Manafort excused his actions stating he wasn't looking for help getting Trump elected and did it purely to make money, with Business Insider reporting, "Manafort told Insider that he directed his deputy, Rick Gates, to feed Kilimnik polling data via email to 'keep Konstantin informed.' The goal was to use his access to Trump to drum up business for himself.

Morning Rant .... on the media being "Trump Fluffers."

BTW I'm sick of 80% + of the MSM being full time "Trump Fluffers." Mother fuckers keep running up the pole the tired ass memes about Trump's political future and his 2024 run for the Presidency because his political future is very weak and he will not be a viable candidate for POTUS either.

Facts for the fact less:

Trump lost the House, the Senate, and the White House in just 4 years.

He lost the popular vote two times.

He was impeached twice and if wasn't for the senate republicans putting party over the country he should have
been convicted, removed from office, and blocked from running again.

He was installed by in 2016 by Russia who used our dirty ass crack electoral college to install Trump. Manafort with his pardon just came out and admitted to rat fucking our elections by feeding data analytics to the Russians.

Trump is in a shit load of legal trouble both criminal and civil. The espionage which Trump will be charged with is serious shit. America has had 3 people with that level of espionage 2 were executed the Rosenbergs (BTW they were guilty as hell) and the other was FBI agent Robert Hanssen who is doing 15 life term in the Federal Super Max in Colorado. As much as the GOP and their media boot licks like to talk about other things .... the FBI Raid, A.G. Muller's was anti Trump, the warrant, and other process arguments .... they can't say shit about the evidence. Bottom line Trump was selling out America to her enemies.
