9:43 AM 2/23/2020 - “The NSC is the brain of the national security apparatus. Trump and O’Brien are giving it a lobotomy,” the columnist and historian David Rothkopf wrote in Daily Beast.
11:09 AM 2/23/2020 - M.N. - The Comment from The Apolitical Animal:
"Deny, deny, deny!" - the same old Goebbels-KGB tactic.
O'Brian just repeats the same simple blanket denials after Trump.
Cheap, nice, and easy. Just proclaim and repeat this the N-number of times from every corner and from every mouth, and maybe the people will believe this, an it will go away.
Do another very simple thing: order the Independent Analysis and Assessment of this issue and question by the multidisciplinary team of the professionals, the experts, recognized in their fields, and on absolutely non-political basis.
This is called "Objectivity", and this is what America is well known and respected for. In this situation, and given the importance of the correct assessment, it is the most prudent course of actions. Do it. Do not try to hang your noodles on people's ears. Ziz iz not Russia, it will not work.
Trumpushka The Pampushka, admit that you are a LIAR and a MUGGER (that is why they sent you to military school, for reeducation). The more you deny it, the less people will believe you.
Trump The Liar and The Mugger is Putin's soulmate and kindred spirit. They share the same psychology, and the same pathology. That is why they understand each other so well, and that is why Putin will try to continue to support him for reelection, to finish the game, and to gain from it. If he is not stopped of course, which he should be.
