I could not be more hype for this book. Thinking of taking off work early.

From an Amazon review:

Quote:
Sims give quite clear information about how it turns out that the big leaker from the WH is KellyAnne Conway. She is the way she appears on the news networks, according to Sims, a cartoon character. “Her agenda—which was her survival over all others, including the president—became more and more transparent. Once you figured that out, everything about her seemed so calculated; every statement, even a seemingly innocuous one, seemed poll-tested by a focus group that existed inside her mind. She seemed to be peren¬nially cloaked in an invisible fur coat, casting an all-¬knowing smile, as if she’d collected 98 Dalmatians with only 3 more to go.”

I remember being in America and my mother's racist boyfriend countered about some point I made that if I didn't like America that I should leave it. I really embarrassed him when I pointed out that I actually did do that.

I didn't know it existed until Trump pointed it out. Now I know what to get on Audible next.

I thought the reason stated for the postponement was security concerns related to the shutdown. I for one am looking forward to the eye rolls and other expressions from Pelosi who will be seated directly behind President Littlehands.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

U.S. Intelligence Chiefs Contradict Trump on North Korea and Iran
A new American intelligence assessment of global threats has concluded that North Korea is “unlikely to give up” all of its nuclear stockpiles, and that Iran is not “currently undertaking the key nuclear weapons-development activity” needed to make a bomb, directly contradicting two top tenets of President Trump’s foreign policy.

Daniel R. Coats, the director of national intelligence, also challenged Mr. Trump’s insistence that the Islamic State had been defeated, a key rationale for his decision to exit from Syria. The terror group, the annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment” report to Congress concluded, “still commands thousands of fighters in Iraq and Syria,” and maintain eight branches and a dozen networks around the world.

The best part about the SOTU is Pelosi will be sitting behind Trump. I can see Trump going off topic and starting an argument with her when Pence claps but she doesn't on some deplorable topic.

Letting Trump go off the rails on national TV is always a plus imo.

From the USA Today article I cited above.

@ScreaminAsian, I read "NATO allies will add $100 billion" as allies other than the U.S. Now I see that could be U.S. and others combined. Not sure, but it appears to be a big deal to Stoltenberg.
Sorry but strategically the extra added money to defense actually makes NATO weaker, not stronger.

The SecGen was doubtless just blowing smoke up Trump's ass to make him less likely to abandon Article 5.

It's only bad when you email them, not when you flash them to cameras broadcasting to like 90 million people.

Man, you guys are first-level thinkers. That page is page #3. Page #2 says, "It's opposite day".

It's like in Raiders of the Lost Ark where the bad guys were working with only one side of the Headpiece to the Staff of Ra.

Is that the common way in USA that intelligence agencies constantly contradict the president and administration?
