The Foil Hat Patrol

I know that I usually shut it down for the day with my closing thought….but I just could not let this piece of crap go without something said.

You know how all the lovely Right wing defenders of the faith, Trump have been having a field day trying to decide what is fat and not…..especially the “wiretapping” bullsh*t…these micro-cephalics actually believe the silliness their master tells them……and then there is Spicer…this dude is the biggest mental midget of the WH bunch……

Trump’s press dude had to double down on his bosses bullsh*t accusation…..

Then there was this accusation that the Brits helped Obama with his nefarious wiretapping scheme……really I kid you not…..

James Bond was not working with Barack Obama to spy on Donald Trump, or so say British spy chiefs after the White House cited a report that claimed Obama had asked UK intelligence agency GCHQ to carry out surveillance at Trump Tower. The allegations cited by press secretary Sean Spicer are “nonsense. They are utterly ridiculous, and should be ignored,” says a GCHQ spokesman. While defending Trump’s wiretapping allegations Thursday, Spicer mentioned a Fox and Friends report in which Fox judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano claimed three intelligence sources had told him the Obama administration partnered with GCHQ to carry out Trump surveillance so there would be “no American fingerprints on this,” the Guardian reports.

Spicer said the Fox report and others cast “into concern some of the activities that may have occurred during the 2016 election,” BuzzFeed reports. BBC security analyst Gordon Corera says it is highly unusual for GCHQ to comment on its work—and to use the phrase “utterly ridiculous”—but “it’s a sign of just how seriously they take it. The allegations are so sensitive that the agency clearly felt they could not let them go unchallenged.” Tim Farron, leader of Britain’s Liberal Democrats party, accused Trump of “compromising the vital UK-US security relationship to try to cover his own embarrassment.”

It seems the the WH had to do some damage control for the Spicer’s bombshell……

The White House has reportedly apologized to the British government for its allegations that a UK intelligence agency helped then-President Obama to wiretap Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. An anonymous White House official tells CNN that national security adviser HR McMaster talked to his British counterpart Thursday, telling him that Sean Spicer’s comment was “unintentional” and that the UK concerns “were understood and heard and … would be relayed to the White House.” The official also says the British ambassador to the US called Spicer Thursday to discuss the matter. CNN describes the conversations Spicer and McMaster had with British officials as “what amounted to an apology,” while the Telegraph refers to them as formal apologies.

But both CNN and the Telegraph are citing anonymous sources, and the White House has not confirmed. A spokesperson for British Prime Minister Theresa May says, per the BBC, that the British government made it clear to the US that the allegations are “ridiculous and should have been ignored.” The spokesperson says May has “received assurances that these allegations won’t be repeated,” but a former UK foreign secretary tells the BBC that’s not enough: “That’s not the same as saying it was rubbish in the first place.” UK intelligence agency GCHQ had earlier slammed Spicer’s allegations as “nonsense.”

These guys in the WH are too humorous…..but the most funny are those slow speaking and even slower thinking supporters of Trump…

I apologize for the break in tradition…..but this one is just too good to ignore….

Have a good weekend my friends….chuq

  1. First thing i noticed was the quick apology to a foreign government and no apology to an American president.

    Second observation: How long can the U.S. last with a POTUS who wilfully turns poor wording into solid lies when a mistake is pointed out. Trump has never come close to saying “I might have been incorrect” about anything in his life, ever!

    At some point his stubborn, fragile, teenage ego will run his mouth before he gathers the facts, when facts are revealed, he will begin building the colossal lie rather than be a man and say he was wrong. Then the consequences will rain down on the United States whilst he blames a phantom.

    I know this is common speculation, pundits are already saying it, but it is also already happening on a small scale every other day! It’s exhausting to keep up with. Sadly, one day it will be a national security mistake and I don’t have a bunker.

    1. Thanx for the comment…..I worry that he will go too far and they will try to impeach him and that will leave Pence in charge….a theocrat….not to my liking chuq

  2. There’s an old cowboy proverb these subhumans wouldn’t understand if they heard, to wit: “If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.” Trouble is, they don’t even recognize the hole….

    I’m also reminded of William F. Buckley’s remark on the CIA, which could also be applied to GCHQ, or any other ‘spy’ agency, mostly: “It had all the earmarks of a CIA operation; the bomb killed everyone in the room, but for the intended target.”

    One can only shoot one’s own foot for so long, before falling down & staying down.

    1. Reminds me of the Beirut bomb in the 80’s…the CIA killed everyone but the intended target…..80+ people died….good job but they were working on lousy info from the Israelis….chuq
