New Goal. Thinking of going to Nigeria and studying scamming.  Problem is that it seems like a lot of hard work.

Come on Trump.  Pick a country.  Start a war. Unify us. You don't have to wait until impeachment starts.  Many world leaders have said bad things bout him... My money is on war with the Vatican.

Shaken Not Scripted: Spicer Repeats Allegation That British Intelligence Spied On Trump For Obama . . . Administration Apologizes

by jonathanturley
Yesterday's press conference by White House Spokesman Sean Spicer seemed uncomfortably close to a Saturday Night Live parody as Spicer spared with CNN and other news outlets over President Trump's wiretapping allegations.  I actually was sympathetic with Spicer on one point:  the media continues to take a literal meaning of Trump's reference to "wiretap."  Some after the first tweet, I stated on CNN that I did not believe that Trump was speaking literally and that he likely meant "surveillance."  I have written and litigated in the field of surveillance for decades and the use of "wiretap" to mean surveillance is common -- particularly among older Americans.  That does not mean that Trump's allegation of surveillance is true or supportable.  That should be the focus, not this recurring rhetorical point.  However, there has been a truly shocking lack of discipline among high-ranking Trump staffers in their public comments, including comments that have undermined the immigration orders.  A good example of that is the suggestion that British intelligence surveilled Trump for Obama. This allegation had no place in a White House briefing and led to an embarrassing apology from the Administration to the British and a promise not to repeat it. It appears that there was no James Bond contract to surveil and the Administration is again shaken not stirred scripted.
