Hillary Clinton isn’t involved. There’s just no way to credibly paint this as a partisan inquisition.

The thread for pretend "evidence" is so vacant, deserted,desolate, that you seek out a thread on Real World topics to disrupt?
Did you never learn to play in a sandbox?


And your "Hilliary is not involved" mantra - what thread do you even think you are in?

Has JewelStaiteFan ever been at a real trial rather than a sandbox? The only person in the Universe collecting "evidence", the kind that can be used in a court room, is Mueller. What Mueller does not collect is not "evidence". It is gossip that is useless in a courtroom. When and if Trump is interviewed under oath by Mueller, that will be more "evidence". Anything Trump says on twitter or what JewelStaiteFan writes is NOT "evidence", it is nothing. If JewelStaiteFan has not noticed, Mueller is not sharing his "evidence". It is all a big secret until Mueller makes it public, with the permission of Rod Rosenstein, Acting Attorney General.

I am wondering why the release of The HPSCI Staff Memo has not been followed by curiosity.
What did Obama know about the FBI and DoJ illegalities, and when did he know them?
Initial FISC application for Warrant on Page was 21 October 2016, first renewal by 19 January 2017. Both under Obama.
This is a Counterintelligence Investigation, which is included in the Daily Security Briefings for the President.
So twice Obama would have been informed of these Criminal acts by his flunkies, goons, drones, bots.
What did Obama know and when did he know it?
And how completely is the MSM protecting him? Have they never asked these questions?

I have heard that some people are confused between the FISA sec 702 Warrantless Surveillance of non-Americans located overseas and the FISA Warrants of American Citizens under 50 USC 1804, 1805, 1801.

Perhaps an understandable confusion, with Obamination's illegal use of both.
FISA 702 was used by Obamination to illegally surveil American Citizens behind the pretense of targeting people overseas who (actual target) Americans were likely to phone, such as Office Holders of Foreign Governments.

Counterintelligence Investigation was the pretense Obamination used to falsify evidence for fraudulent Application under 50 USC 1804 in order to obtain the meritless FISA Warrant under 50 USC 1805 to illegally surveil American Citizens.

"Rather Not Have A Paper Trail" - Top Dem Texted Russian Oligarch Lobbyist For Access To Steele
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) - the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee and a lead investigator in the Trump-Russia probe, had "extensive" contact last year with a lobbyist for a Russian Oligarch who promised Warner access to Christopher Steele, according to Fox News. Steele is the former British spy who assembled several anti-Trump opposition research "dossiers," including an unverified 35-page document which the FBI used to obtain a FISA "wiretap" warrant on one-time Trump campaign advisor, Carter Page.

On March 22, 2017, Sen. Warner texted lobbyist Adam Waldman of the DC-based Endeavor Group: "We have so much to discuss u need to be careful but we can help our country" on March 22, 2017.

IIRC David Laufman was also Counterintelligence at DoJ.

I wonder if that means they are in the midst of investigating other meritless FISC Warrants. Page certainly can't be the only one. (More than 300 FISA Warrants in 2016 against Americans). Everything related to FISC is Classified, maybe these "stepping downs" are results of FISC. Would prison sentences expose FISC actions too much?

Why has nobody been mentioning the Graham-Grassley Memo?
Apparently declassified today.
Can somebody post an image of it, or transcript?

Apparently Steele included gossip from Democraps, Libtards, and Hilliary in the dossier as "Intelligence" without any attempt of pretense of verification or authenticity. Apparently the "Clinton friend" that fed Steele gossip and is redacted was Syd Blumenthal.

Also, Steele has apparently violated 28 USC 1001.

Dan Bongino was a 2016 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 19th Congressional District of Florida.[1] Bongino was defeated by Francis Rooney in the Republican primary on August 30, 2016.

Bongino was a 2014 Republican candidate for United States House of Representatives in the 2014 elections.

Bongino was also a 2012 Republican candidate who sought election to the U.S. Senate from Maryland. He lost to incumbent Ben Cardin on November 6, 2012

To use the word "reluctant" to describe Trump's attorney's attitude towards him testifying would be the Grand Poobah of understatements. But I consider all this movement by Trump, and his cronies, to block Mueller and company, a desperate attempt of deflecting.

Hell, these boys are downright apoplectic. If I had my 'druthers' - I'd choose subpoena. Roast that bitch! Trump is probably thinking that he can talk his way out of this........Oh! I wish he would go Gonzo!
That's what his lawyers fear most.

I really wonder about WH Counsel Donald McGahn; he's supposed to be the people's attorney working for the USA in the White House. I was curious, so I looked it up:

"The White House Counsel is a staff appointee of POTUS whose role is to advise the President on all legals issues concerning the President and his Administration....regarding legal issues to sign or veto legislation, ethical questions, financial disclosures, and conflicts of interest....and here's an interesting statement: "and handles lawsuits against the President in his role as President..." in other words, he is NOT above the law. He can get sued.

Intelligence officials say U.S. "under attack," cybersecurity at risk in 2018

Leaders of the intelligence community said the United States is "under attack" as it relates to the nation's cybersecurity posture heading into the 2018 midterm elections. FBI Director Christopher Wray, CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats joined other intelligence heads by offering testimony on worldwide threats facing the U.S. and its allies on Capitol Hill on Tuesday.

The intelligence chiefs appeared to be in consensus that the threat against the U.S.' cybersecurity is a top priority for the intelligence community and actors like Russia show little sign of slowing down their efforts to sow discord and dissension in the United States.

Giant advertiser Unilever threatens to pull its ads from Facebook and Google over 'toxic content'

One of the world's largest advertisers is threatening to pull its ads from social sites such as Facebook and YouTube if the tech companies don't do more to minimize divisive content on their platforms.

Unilever's chief marketing officer, Keith Weed, called on Silicon Valley on Monday to better police what he describes as a toxic online environment where propaganda, hate speech and disturbing content that exploits children thrive.

"Fake news, racism, sexism, terrorists spreading messages of hate, toxic content directed at children — parts of the internet we have ended up with is a million miles from where we thought it would take us," Weed said in a speech at the Interactive Advertising Bureau's Leadership Meeting in Palm Desert. "It is in the digital media industry's interest to listen and act on this."

The center's 66 employees coordinates with U.S. agencies, such as the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, to target the American audience. It works with social media companies that have been used to spread foreign propaganda. And it also consults with foreign governments who face similar threats.

France, Germany, Estonia, Ukraine and the Czech Republic have had recent experience countering Russian disinformation efforts.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


Russia wasn't mentioned even once.

But this is the problem with linking news, and content, to advertising. Companies don't want anything disturbing to rock the stupor of the consumer. That's how we ended up with the vapid, formulaic 'infotainment' of so-called news.

One of the world's largest advertisers is threatening to pull its ads from social sites such as Facebook and YouTube if the tech companies don't do more to minimize divisive content on their platforms.

Unilever's chief marketing officer, Keith Weed, called on Silicon Valley on Monday to better police what he describes as a toxic online environment where propaganda, hate speech and disturbing content that exploits children thrive.

"Fake news, racism, sexism, terrorists spreading messages of hate, toxic content directed at children — parts of the internet we have ended up with is a million miles from where we thought it would take us," Weed said in a speech at the Interactive Advertising Bureau's Leadership Meeting in Palm Desert. "It is in the digital media industry's interest to listen and act on this."

Last year, Unilever spent nearly $9.5 billion marketing its brands, including Lipton tea, Dove soap, Axe body spray and Ben & Jerry's ice cream. One quarter of that budget, or about $2.4 billion, was spent on digital advertising.

Weed said that the company will promise to boost more "responsible content," including ads that tackle gender stereotypes, and that it will partner only with digital networks that pledge to use an industry standard for ad metrics and improve consumer ad experiences. Weed said he has already begun discussions with Facebook Inc., Google, Twitter Inc., Amazon.com Inc. and Snapchat maker Snap Inc. (Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos also owns the Washington Post.)

"It is acutely clear from the groundswell of consumer voices over recent months that people are becoming increasingly concerned about the impact of digital on well-being, on democracy — and on truth itself," Weed said. "This is not something that can be brushed aside or ignored. Consumers are also demanding platforms which make a positive contribution to society."

Google and Facebook dominate online advertising, and they have come under increased pressure from lawmakers, academics and industry critics to invest more heavily in filtering out misinformation and abusive content on their networks.

Last year, Google's YouTube faced a vocal backlash from U.S. advertisers who said the company was not doing enough to prevent their ads from being played alongside derogatory and extremist content. Google — a division of Alphabet Inc. — has since adopted changes to the YouTube platform, which draws 1.6 billion monthly users. Those changes include stricter criteria for what types of videos can receive ad dollars, and more human reviews of content.

In response to Weed's message, Google said it takes its partners' and users' trust and safety seriously. "We will continue to work to earn that trust every day," it said.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced this year that his social network's news feed would show its 2.1 billion users more posts from their friends and family, as opposed to news organizations and brands, in an effort to generate more "meaningful" interactions. During its most recent earnings call, Zuckerberg acknowledged that Facebook users spent 50 million fewer hours per day on the social network than they did the previous quarter, in part by seeing fewer viral videos — a consequence of Facebook's new push to prioritize the quality of interactions on its platform over the popularity of content.



Despite the recent pushback, Google and Facebook continue to dominate the market for online advertising. According to EMarketer's latest estimates, the two companies are expected to claim nearly two-thirds of the U.S. market share for digital ads. Google is expected to command 42% of the market, with Facebook at 23%.

Weed said that 2018 "is either the year of techlash, where the world turns on the tech giants — and we have seen some of this already — or the year of trust, the year where we collectively rebuild trust back in our systems and our society."

Facebook said in a statement: "We fully support Unilever's commitments and are working closely with them."

Giant advertiser Unilever threatens to pull its ads from Facebook and Google over 'toxic content'

One of the world's largest advertisers is threatening to pull its ads from social sites such as Facebook and YouTube if the tech companies don't do more to minimize divisive content on their platforms.

Unilever's chief marketing officer, Keith Weed, called on Silicon Valley on Monday to better police what he describes as a toxic online environment where propaganda, hate speech and disturbing content that exploits children thrive.

"Fake news, racism, sexism, terrorists spreading messages of hate, toxic content directed at children — parts of the internet we have ended up with is a million miles from where we thought it would take us," Weed said in a speech at the Interactive Advertising Bureau's Leadership Meeting in Palm Desert. "It is in the digital media industry's interest to listen and act on this."

The whole sorry mess needs to be ripped open, and those who politicized the DOJ/ FBI need to be held accountable. Hillary herself probably belongs in jail.

I know the memo is about FISA and NSA, but that's just a small part of the rot that exists.

There is for sure rot elsewhere ... like in the Pentagon ... and Congress ... but you gotta start somewhere.

NSA, FISA were just the arena. The rot exposed really was just Obama DoJ, Obama FBI, and everything Obama.

It is shocking that this prediction escaped posting in kpo's thread. Just shocking, I say.
Got rid of rotten McCabe finally. Should work on the AG more. He whined for Trump to not release the memo, so maybe just discrediting his career will be enough.
Comey might be getting jailed by FISA Court.
Just gotta prosecute his best friend Mueller.

Analysis: Indictment Makes Trump’s Hoax Claim Harder to Sell

By laying out a meticulous case for how Russia tried to tip the electoral scales toward Mr. Trump in 2016, Mr. Mueller has made it much harder for the president to dismiss the investigation as mere politics. He may also have made it harder for Mr. Trump to fire Mr. Mueller himself, since, as some Democratic lawmakers argued, that would look like an attempt to help Russia further undermine American democracy.

Operation INFEKTION
Soviet Bloc Intelligence and Its AIDS Disinformation Campaign

Operation INFEKTION was a KGB disinformation campaign to spread information that the United States invented HIV/AIDS[2] as part of a biological weapons research project at Fort Detrick, Maryland. The Soviet Union used it to undermine the United States’ credibility, foster anti-Americanism, isolate America abroad, and create tensions between host countries and the U.S. over the presence of American military bases (which were often portrayed as the cause of AIDS outbreaks in local populations).

RUSSIAGATE & UKRAINE: HOW THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION HEIGHTENS THE WAR DANGER
THE CASE OF PAUL MANAFORT

It is not exactly a secret that so-called neo-conservatives in the U.S. State Department and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), in conjunction with “left-wing” speculator and City of London operative George Soros, collaborated in the regime change coup in Ukraine in February 2014, which overthrew the democratically-elected government of Viktor Yanukovych. Former Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasian Affairs, the unabashed neocon Victoria Nuland, bragged that the U.S. and related agencies, such as the NED, spent $5 billion to lay the groundwork for the coup.

What is not generally known, however, due to the lying coverage in the Transatlantic “Fake News” media, is that included in this unholy alliance of coup plotters were armed militia units made up of neo-Nazis, who were responsible for the bloodshed on Maidan Square in Kiev, and which threatened the ethnic Russians, which constitute the majority of the population in the eastern Ukraine regions of Donetsk and Luhansk. The lie that there was no neo-Nazi involvement has been maintained, despite ample evidence to the contrary, including interviews with militants pronouncing admiration for Hitler’s collaborators in the Bandera movement in Ukraine during World War II, when Ukrainian units murdered ethnic Poles, Russians, and other “non-Ukrainians”, including Ukrainian Jews. The armed “Banderistas” and related thugs have been incorporated into the security apparatus of the Kiev regime, and continue to march in the halls of Parliament and on the streets, under banners with pictures of Bandera, the Nazi collaborator, and symbols going back to their alliance with the Nazi SS.

The coup provoked a chain of events which the U.S., London and NATO used as justification to impose punitive sanctions against Russia, while demonizing Russia’s President Putin, asserting that the he was engaged in military operations in Crimea and eastern Ukraine, to reverse the coup. Efforts to stop the fighting between the regime’s armed forces and ethnic Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine led to the Minsk Accord in 2015, which included a cease fire and the granting of autonomy for Donetsk and Luhansk. The Minsk Accord was brokered by France, Germany and Russia.

On January 18, 2018, the Ukrainian Parliament ripped up the Minsk Accord, referring to the two republics as “temporarily occupied” by an “aggressor country,” that is, Russia, and vowed to reintegrate them, by military force if necessary. This bill, which received the full support of Ukraine’s President Poroshenko, has been described by the Russian Foreign Ministry as “a preparation for a new war.” It occurs simultaneously with an outburst of war-like propaganda from western neocons, typified by a report from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), released on February 20 with the title, “Coping with Surprise in Great Power Conflicts.” The report charges that both Russia and China are preparing for war against the U.S., and that the Russians are deploying forces and artillery to overrun the Baltic states in a lightning strike, to reincorporate them into a new Russian empire!

What is also not yet publicly known, but is now coming into focus due to Congressional investigations of the role of British secret agent, Christopher Steele, a “former” MI6 operative, is that the dirty alliance behind the coup, and the subsequent escalation of anti-Russian, war-like hysteria, is the same network running the Russiagate scam as a regime change coup against U.S. President Trump.

THE CASE OF PAUL MANAFORT

This background is necessary to understand the vicious hostility behind the targeting of Paul Manafort, a long-time U.S. political operative, by the “amoral legal assassin”, special counsel Robert Mueller. Manafort, who served as Donald Trump’s campaign manager at a key moment in his fight to secure the Republican nomination, from May to August 2016, was indicted by Mueller on October 27, 2017, charged with numerous counts of money laundering, tax fraud, not registering as an agent of a foreign government, and of making false statements to the FBI. Mueller filed a revised indictment on February 28, 2018, following his “turning” of Manafort’s partner Rick Gates, who filed a guilty plea to a single count on February 22. While awaiting trial in September, Manafort is confined to house arrest.

None of the charges against Manafort are related to the initial mandate given to Mueller, by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to investigate the allegations of Russian hacking and sundry meddling in the 2016 election, and whether Donald Trump had “colluded” with the Russians. However, they are directly related to the geopolitical manipulations against Russia, which have been sharply criticized by Trump, both as a candidate and as President.

Manafort was first placed under surveillance following a FISA Court order in 2014. FISA, the super-secret court set up as part of the post-9/11 apparat to spy on potential terrorists, granted the surveillance order as part of an investigation into alleged illegal lobbying on behalf of the Yanukovych government of Ukraine by Manafort and others. Note that the timing of the court order coincided with the 2014 coup in Ukraine. Manafort had been working for several years as an adviser to the Party of the Regions, which was the party of President Yanukovych, who was overthrown by the regime change coup.

The original FISA warrant targeting Manafort was subsequently not renewed, for lack of evidence. A second order, however, was approved by the FISA Court for surveillance of Manafort sometime during 2016 — the exact date of the order has not been released — likely around the time Manafort took over the reins of the Trump campaign. Manafort played a key role in holding the Trump coalition together heading into the Republican convention July 18-21, as Bush-directed “Never-Trumpers” were attempting to steal the nomination away from him.

Prior to the convention, Manafort was involved in the successful fight to remove language from the party’s platform which called for providing lethal weapons to the Poroshenko government, allegedly to fight against “Russian subversion.” Manafort had the backing of Trump for this, as Trump had campaigned for an end to U.S. support for regime change wars, such as the Obama-neocon coup in Ukraine.

Democratic Senator Ben Cardin, a leading campaigner for tougher sanctions against Russia — he was one of the authors of the initial anti-Russia sanctions, in the Magnitsky Act — accused Trump and Manafort of changing the platform to benefit Russia, which he accused of robbing Ukraine of sovereignty! It is now reported that Manafort’s role in changing the language in the platform is “under investigation” by Mueller!

(Manafort was also instrumental in including a plank supporting restoration of Glass Steagall banking separation, something vehemently opposed by Wall Street and the City of London financial institutions.)

It was during this same time period, June and July, once it was evident that, barring some unforeseen event, Trump would be the Republican nominee, that the anti-Trump activities of the “Deep State” went into high gear. While the “Never Trumpers” were unsuccessfully plotting to prevent his nomination at the convention, Christopher Steele began churning out memos, paid for by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, which included wild claims about Putin’s secret service filming Trump in compromising sexual activity during the 2013 Miss Universe contest in Moscow. His first memo was written on June 20, 2016, and he met for the first time with an FBI official on July 5, 2016.

It was also in June that CIA Director John Brennan was briefed by GCHQ Director Hannigan, on “evidence” compiled by his agency, of “suspicious” activity they had picked up on Russian activity with Trump. GCHQ is Britain’s cyber security intelligence agency, which works directly with MI5 and MI6. Brennan then pulled together an inter-agency task force to investigate the British charges of Russian activity. Among those in the FBI unit which was part of this task force were the now-famous duo, Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, whose extensive text messaging shows that they were engaged in creating the fake narrative of “Russian meddling and Trump collusion”. One text spoke of developing the Russiagate narrative to either defeat Trump in November, or provide an “insurance policy” against him, if he won.

This incriminating text describes the meeting as taking place in “Andy’s office”, a reference to the now-fired Deputy Director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe, who told a Congressional hearing that there would have been no surveillance warrant issued by the FISA court in October 2016 against Trump campaign volunteer Carter Page, had it not been for the Steele dossier.

Nunes has sent a list of ten questions regarding how the Steele’s dossier shaped the anti-Trump mobilization of Obama’s intelligence agencies. Among those receiving the list of ten questions are James Comey, the former FBI director fired by Trump, Obama’s Director of National Intelligence Clapper, Brennan and Victoria Nuland. They are given until March 2 to answer, or they will face subpoenas. What Nunes is looking for is answers as to when the Steele dossier was brought to their attention, by whom, what actions were taken in response to it, its role in the submission to the FISA Court, and whether President Obama was briefed on what the dossier contained. They lay the basis for possible indictments against those receiving the questions, and for Steele. Senators Grassley and Graham have already stated they believe charges should be filed against Steele, who has thus far been protected by Her Majesty’s government, which has acted to prevent Steele from being brought before a court of law.

STEELE AND THE UKRAINIAN CONNECTION

But Steele’s role in shaping U.S. policy predates the setting up of the Get Trump task force. Both Nunes and Grassley are investigating Steele’s connections with the U.S. State Department, including with the notorious Nuland. They are looking into the role of Jonathan Winer, a former assistant Secretary of State who served as a long-time aide to former Secretary of State John Kerry. Winer befriended Steele in 2009, when they were collaborating on investigations of Russian “corruption”.

Beginning in 2013, Steele drafted more than 100 memos on Ukraine and Russia, and passed these on to Winer, who was then a special assistant to Kerry on Libya, which had been destroyed in a Clinton-Obama regime change operation. Winer admitted, in an oped in the Washington Post on February 8, 2018, that he passed these on to Victoria Nuland, who asked that he continue to bring them to her. Note that these were written at the time of, and the immediate aftermath of the coup in Ukraine. The Washington Post Deep State conduit, James Rosen, wrote that Nuland found these reports “informative and sometimes helpful”, and asked Winer to keep them coming.

When asked about the Steele memos on Ukraine in an interview with CBS on February 4 — four days before Winer’s oped was published — Nuland lied, denying that she had used the Steele memos.

But the Steele-Winer connection continued. In September 2016, Winer met with Steele, who presented to Winer his anti-Trump dossier. Winer drafted a two-page summary of the dossier, which he gave to Nuland. She told him to present this to Kerry. Later in the month, Winer met with Hillary Clinton confidante Sidney Blumenthal, who showed him another specious anti-Trump dossier, compiled by Clinton operative Cody Shearer. Winer then shared this who Steele, who then claimed it confirmed the charges he made in his dossier, though coming from different “sources.”

Nunes and Grassley are both investigating the Steele-Winer-Nuland connection to see what this means as far as Obama administration direct involvement in running the Russiagate coup. Among those calling for a full criminal investigation into Brennan, Clapper, Comey and Hillary Clinton, which would reach Obama as well, is former Washington, D.C. U.S. Attorney Joseph DiGenova, who said it’s very likely they could all be indicted.

YET BRITISH HITMAN MUELLER PROCEEDS!

As evidence piles up that the real collusion in the 2016 election was between British intelligence, the Clinton campaign, and Obama’s intelligence team, Robert Mueller keeps going, indicting bit players on charges that have nothing to do with his mandate. Among the more ridiculous set of indictments was that against a Russian “troll farm”, which will never be contested in court. However, it gave the media more ammunition to use against Trump. (See last week’s NS for details.)

The new indictments against Manafort come from squeezing his former partner, Rick Gates. Using a prosecutor’s set of tools, Mueller went after Gates on his weak flank, the threat to him and his family of bankruptcy, were he to fight the charges. In entering his guilty plea, Gates told the court, “Despite my initial desire to vigorously defend myself, I have had a change of heart. The reality of how long this legal process will likely take, the cost, and the circus-like atmosphere of an anticipated trial are too much. I will better serve my family moving forward by exiting this process.”

On the new charges against Manafort on money laundering, a well-informed insider said he’s astonished at the lengths to which Mueller is going. He noted the irony that, when Mueller and Comey were FBI Directors, they never made a criminal case against leading banks which engaged in billions of dollars in money laundering, much of it proceeds from drug and arms-trafficking. One of the banks given a repeated pass was the notorious HSBC, which while being fined repeatedly for money laundering, never faced criminal prosecution. Among those arguing against criminal charges was the British Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, who said a criminal proceeding against a “systemically important” bank, such as HSBC, would risk “global financial disaster.” Obama’s Attorney General Holder shared this view, as he refused to file any criminal charges against “Too Big to Fail” banks.

Until his appointment by Obama as Director of the FBI, James Comey served on the Board of Directors of HSBC!

From this review of the significance of Ukraine in the whole Russiagate process, it becomes clear that the perversion of justice it represents is surpassed only by the danger which flows from the anti-Russia theme it serves. Unless there is an intervention to shut down this witch hunt, as there was to end the hysterical red-baiting charges of the infamous Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s, the threshold for a possible nuclear confrontation with Russia is being dramatically reduced. It was Trump’s campaign pledge to cooperate with Russia, rather than prepare for war, which is the reason for the Russiagate fraud.

With the Ukraine tensions heightened by recent developments, full exposure of Steele’s dirty role, and that of his collaborators, has become an essential component of a war-avoidance strategy.

Obama: That is both irresponsible and BTW... Doesn't really show the leadership and toughness you'd want out of a President.
