Trump fires back at loudmouth Brennan says he cannot be trusted with countrys secrets

President Trump has fired back at former CIA director John Brennan who has been speaking out against the president for revoking his security clearance. 

Trump tweeted Saturday: “Has anyone looked at the mistakes that John Brennan made while serving as CIA Director? He will go down as easily the WORST in history & since getting out, he has become nothing less than a loudmouth, partisan, political hack who cannot be trusted with the secrets to our country!” 

The president’s social media attack happened the morning after Brennan said of Trump on MSNBC, “The fact that he’s using a security clearance of a former CIA director as a pawn in his public relations strategy I think is just so reflective of somebody who, quite frankly, I don’t want to use this term maybe, but he’s drunk on power. He really is, and I think he’s abusing the powers of that office.” 

Brennan was reportedly referring to speculation that Trump decided to invoke the move against him in order to deflect the news cycle away from a newly released book by former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman which contains explosive claims about the administration. 

The White House made the announcement in a briefing Wednesday, with press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders saying in a statement, in part, “Mr. Brennan has a history that calls into question his objectivity and credibility.”

During the session, she also denied that the former CIA director and others were being targeted over their frequent criticisms of the president.

Why do Democrats love socialism

“Democrats more positive about socialism than capitalism,” blares the headline on a new poll by Gallup this week. According to the survey, 57 percent of Democrats and left leaners surveyed have a positive view of socialism, compared to just 47 percent of Democrats and left leaners who have a positive view of capitalism.

What the heck? There is only one way to read this: Way too many Democrats are simply uninformed. I am not saying they are stupid. I am not saying they are ignorant. I am saying they are uninformed. Sadly, that is not surprising, given the tripe that passes for “education” in our public schools. And it is even worse for those who go on to college. Most four-year universities and colleges in this country are populated by left-wing professors whose hatred for America is only surpassed by their sense of entitlement to the fruits of other people’s labor.

The typical graduate of the typical four-year college in this country thinks better of Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, and Ho Chi Minh than he or she does of Ronald Reagan. They simply do not know, or understand, that socialism is but one step removed from communism, and communism kills. Ask the survivors of Pol Pot’s Cambodian killing fields (where upwards of two million out of a population of just eight million were killed), or the survivors of Stalin’s purges (where upwards of 20 million were killed) what they think of communism and its “softer” cousin, socialism.

The Democrats (and Democrat leaners) who said they have a positive view of socialism clearly do not understand the link between economic freedom and political freedom. History shows you simply cannot have one without the other. That’s why the United States was able to leapfrog over the older, more established, more socialistic nations of Europe to become the world’s dominant power in the middle of the last century. Risk-taking, entrepreneurship, and property rights are the very heart of capitalist societies. They are the engines that drive economic growth and innovation, the “sine qua non” of economic dynamism.

Economic growth and dynamism lead to a higher standard of living. More money in your pocket means more control over the decisions that affect one&rs

Top Trump ally says Bloomberg would be toughest 2020 opponent

A 2020 match-up between President Trump and fellow New Yorker Michael Bloomberg would make for "very, very competitive race," former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said Wednesday.

Bloomberg is among the growing number of Democrats who are considering challenging Trump in the next presidential election. The billionaire former New York City mayor has pledged to spend $80 million to help elect congressional Democratic candidates in the fall midterm elections, and has reportedly told confidantes he's weighing a White House bid after declining to run as an independent in 2016.

Though the 76-year-old was a staunch supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016, he has developed a positive reputation among progressives for his left-of-center positions on gun control, immigration, and climate change. Bloomberg left the Republican Party in 2007 and has reportedly told friends he would run as a Democrat in 2020 if he decides to run.

"He checks many, many boxes in the progressive movement: he's exceptionally wealthy, has 100 percent name I.D. [and] he's willing to self-fund a race because he put $100 million dollars into his own race for mayor of New York City," Lewandowski told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

Lewandowski was responding to a question about Trump's potential challengers, and who would make the most formidable opponent on the Democratic side.

Because Bloomberg is similar to the president in many ways, and doesn't carry the baggage of "being part of the culture in D.C.," the White House should be scared if he enters the race next year, Lewandowski said.

"He has a history of running the nation's largest city, and he doesn't have the same problems that senators have, which is the schedule of being in the U.S. Senate," Lewandowski said. He said Bloomberg, who has an estimated net worth of $52 billion, "could literally write a check for $250 million dollars tomorrow – and as a rounding error in his bank account."

Besides being competitive, Lewandowski said a Trump vs. Bloomberg race would give voters more opportunities to hear from both candidates as both men would be less likely to spend significant time raising money for their campaigns.

"It would be a very, very competitive race and it would be a race that wouldn't require an en

Chris Cuomo Nails Why Trump Supporters Defend Everything He Does

CNN anchor warns Trump’s defenders: “He’s playing you.”

CNN’s Chris Cuomo is calling on President Donald Trump’s supporters to demand higher standards from their leader. 

So far, however, they’ve refused to do so. Cuomo wrote on Twitter on Tuesday that their support has “a religious quality” that leads them to defend the president almost as a matter of faith: 

Christopher C. Cuomo ✔@ChrisCuomo

The lying is unprecedented. That’s clear. What is also clear is that trump support has a religious quality to it: their belief in him is not about fact but faith in some set of expectations it seems. So it doesn’t matter what he says or who lies abt it.

Abby D. Phillip ✔@abbydphillip

Last night on Fox @KatrinaPierson denied that she said "he said it" on a conference call about the alleged "n-word tape."

Now, she's acknowledging that there was a call. The audio seems clear: she said "he said it. He's embarrassed by it."

Credibility problems on all fronts. 

3:50 PM - Aug 14, 2018

Earlier in the day, Trump called former White House aide and “Apprentice” contestant Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog” after she published a book critical of him and said the president had used a racial slur. 

Cuomo said the president seems to get away with insults and language that most people ― even his supporters ― wouldn’t accept: 

“If my 12-year-old, Mario, called someone a ‘dog,’ he would not say it again in my presence. I guarantee you he would apologize. In fact, if he said most of the things that the president says about people he’s threatened by or doesn’t like, his cheeks would be glowing.” Read more:
