  1. Planting a tree is a really good idea. No downside. I've planted a few in my time. Thanks to Google Streetview, I can see how my babies are doing. Next time somebody is whinging about "climate change", ask 'em how many trees they've planted.
  2. I gave you links to 7 major news sites, reporting on the Michael Sussman Indictment, 5 of which specifically names Biden's current National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan. RealClear Investigations New York Post (essentially the same report as RealClear) Daily Mail Yahoo News Epoch Times The Hill Washington Post It's just a fact of life, that a major news story will appear in a wide range of publications. And if the salacious details of a Clinton Campaign "Russian Dossier" and the associated "Trump/Russian Collusion Conspiracy Theory" consumed the MSM's resources 24/7 for the best part of 5 years, the picking of the threads to unravel the plot, will interest some. Others will hang on to the "collusion" narrative until they die. Nobody likes to admit they were duped. That's life!
  3. I believe your dissembling distraction of "pecker" refers to a pun headline, where Jeff Bezos is reporting a blackmail threat by one David Pecker. "National Enquirer boss Tried to Blackmail me with Nude Photos" - Jeff Bezos. But like many of these stories, it actually had it's genesis in that notoriously partisan Huffington Post. On Feb. 8, 2019 — "The Huffington Post used "Bezos Exposes Pecker" as a website front page headline, while the New York Post ran it awhile later". https://www.inquisitr.com/5287034/bezos-exposes-pecker-headline-used-by-both-huffington-post-and-new-york-post/ Best to keep a sense of perspective about such Media clickbait. Here's NBC "OpEd: Why We Don't Care About Tom Brady's Deflated Balls". Referring to allegations of cheating by the famous NFL quarterback. https://www.nbcnews.com › news › nbcblk › why-we-don... Anyway, back on topic: If the investigative reporter for RealClearPolitics, a longtime media fellow at Stanford’s Hoover Institution and previously the Washington bureau chief for Investor’s Business Daily, who's work has appeared in the New York Post, Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Houston Chronicle, among other major publications, does not meet your "high" stadards of reporting, no matter. There are many other reports from the MSM with a similar take on Biden's National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan's potential legal jeopardy in the Clinton "Russian Collusion" matter. "Biden national security adviser Jake Sullivan - who worked for Hillary during 2016 presidential race tied to conspiracy to trick FBI into investigating Trump for Russian collusion" https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10025779/Jake-Sullivan-national-security-adviser-Biden-administration-guilty-perjury.html "Jake Sullivan pushed Alfa Bank claim at center of Durham’s possible indictment" https://news.yahoo.com/jake-sullivan-pushed-alfa-bank-191800318.html "Details in Michael Sussmann’s Indictment Reveal Conspiracy Against Trump" https://www.theepochtimes.com/details-in-michael-sussmanns-indictment-reveal-conspiracy-against-trump_4006442.html "Clinton lawyer's indictment reveals 'bag of tricks'" https://thehill.com/opinion/judiciary/572861-clinton-lawyers-indictment-reveals-bag-of-tricks Washington Post "It is entirely fitting that the Alfa Bank rumor will be the final bookend of the Russia probe" https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/09/17/it-is-entirely-fitting-that-alfa-bank-rumor-be-final-bookend-russia-probe/ First Mueller, then even the Washington Post refutes the phony Alfa Bank connection to the Trump campaign, which, along with the Clinton Campaign paid for, fake "Russian Dossier", was flogged to Obama's Intelligence Agencies, and kept the phony narrative on the MSM front burner for Trump's entire 4 year term.

  4. See: "Michael Sussmann, a partner in Perkins Coie, a law firm representing the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of making false statements to the FBI about his clients and their motives behind planting the rumor, at the highest levels of the FBI, of a secret Trump-Russia server. After a months-long investigation, the FBI found no merit to the rumor". https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2021/09/23/biden_security_adviser_sullivan_tied_to_16_clinton_plan_to_co-opt_cia_and_fbi_to_tar_trump_795498.html and: "Did Jake Sullivan commit perjury? Emails reveal ‘lie’ on Trump" "Jake Sullivan, national security adviser in the Biden administration, may be guilty of perjury related to the Hillary Clinton campaign’s dirty tricks against Donald Trump. Last week, Michael A. Sussmann, a partner at Perkins Coie, a law firm representing the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of making false statements to the FBI about his clients and their motives behind planting the rumor, at the highest levels of the FBI, of a secret Trump-Russia server. The indictment states that Sussmann, as well as the cyber experts recruited for the operation, “coordinated with representatives and agents of the Clinton campaign with regard to the data and written materials that Sussmann gave to the FBI and the media.” One of those campaign agents was Sullivan, according to emails that special counsel John Durham obtained. On Sept. 15, 2016 — just four days before Sussmann handed off the materials to the FBI — Marc Elias, Sussmann’s law partner and fellow Democratic Party operative, “exchanged emails with the Clinton campaign’s foreign policy adviser concerning the Russian bank allegations,” as well as with other top campaign officials, the indictment states. Sources close to the case confirmed the “foreign policy adviser” referenced by title is Sullivan". https://nypost.com/2021/09/23/did-jake-sullivan-commit-perjury-e-mails-reveal-lie-on-trump/ No argument from me. Just posting the facts, Ma'am!
  5. No you won't. Lol The Durham Report is not yet completed. The results will be presented to duly appointed Justice Department officials for further action. "Durham was given the authority “to broadly examine the government’s collection of intelligence involving the Trump campaign’s interactions with Russians,” reviewing government documents and requesting voluntary witness statements. It was reported on October 24, 2019, that the Justice Department had elevated the inquiry to a criminal investigation". - https://www.wiki.ng/en/wiki/john-durham-u-s-attorney So far, Durham has Indicted two former FBI Officials of the Obama Administration. (See post and links above)
  6. I'd just suggest you change up your "news" sources. Lol
  7. Here it is again: "U.S. officials made clear at the time that the agreement was conditions-based and the failure of intra-Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw. One day before the Doha deal, a top aide to chief U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said the agreement was not irreversible, and “there is no obligation for the United States to withdraw troops if the Afghan parties are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith” during negotiations". https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-middle-east-taliban-doha-e6f48507848aef2ee849154604aa11be I'll take the AP News take and the top U.S. Negotiators take on the Agreement, rather than your myopic inablity to read the following Items in the Agreement. ; 3. After the announcement of guarantees for a complete withdrawal of foreign forces and timeline in the presence of international witnesses, and guarantees and the announcement in the presence of international witnesses that Afghan soil will not be used against the security of the United States and its allies, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which is not recognized by the United States as a state and is known as the Taliban will start intra-Afghan negotiations with Afghan sides on March 10, 2020, which corresponds to Rajab 15, 1441 on the Hijri Lunar calendar and Hoot 20, 1398 on the Hijri Solar calendar. 4. A permanent and comprehensive ceasefire will be an item on the agenda of the intra-Afghan dialogue and negotiations. The participants of intra-Afghan negotiations will discuss the date and modalities of a permanent and comprehensive ceasefire, including joint implementation mechanisms, which will be announced along with the completion and agreement over the future political roadmap of Afghanistan.
  8. The link to Sussman and Sullivan's new troubles is given, above. Clinesmith's forged email in the FISA Application is discussed here: "Mueller Report: FBI Lawyer "altered email" to wiretap Trump aide" https://www.bbc.com › world-us-canada-53784048 and here: Former FBI attorney to plead guilty for altering email in Russia ... https://www.politico.com › news › 2020/08/14 › fbi-att.. As for the Comey, Strzok et al references, anyone who followed the Mueller Investigation of Trump should be familiar with these players, especially someone like you who has very strong opinions on Trump. All but Ohr (husband of GPS Fusion employee) are no longer in government office. You can Google/Wiki any of the names individually. I don't get paid to educate you! I'm supposed to be retired! Lol
  9. How the Clinton Machine spread fake dirt on Donald Trump, with the willing participation of the Obama/Biden Aministration's Intelligence Agencies. The Trump critics were correct about one thing. It would be impossible to have such a wide ranging conspiracy against Trump, involving so many players, without it eventually coming apart at the seams. But painfully slowly, but surely, the rocks are being lifted, and it ain't pretty. First Obama's FBI Senior personnel, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Page, Ohr, Rybicki, Baker, Campbell, Turgal, Bower, Steinbach, Van Grack, Giacalone, Pientka, Boente, and the other 20 or so FBI personnel, fired, re-assigned, demoted or resigned as a result of the Mueller Investigation "We will stop him". was their battle cry. Then Durham Indicted Obama FBI Lawyer Kevin Clinesmith for willfully altering an email presented to the FISA COURT to support surveillance of a Trump campaign associate. He pleaded guilty. Now we have "Michael Sussmann, a partner in Perkins Coie, a law firm representing the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of making false statements to the FBI about his clients and their motives behind planting the rumor, at the highest levels of the FBI, of a secret Trump-Russia server. After a months-long investigation, the FBI found no merit to the rumor". https://www.realclearinvestigations.com/articles/2021/09/23/biden_security_adviser_sullivan_tied_to_16_clinton_plan_to_co-opt_cia_and_fbi_to_tar_trump_795498.html Tied to this Indictment is Biden's White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan who figures prominently in a grand jury investigation run by Special Counsel John Durham into an alleged 2016 Hillary Clinton campaign scheme to use both the FBI and CIA to tar Donald Trump as a colluder with Russia, according to people familiar with the criminal probe, which they say has broadened into a conspiracy case. Ironically, all this malfeasance at the very top of the Obama/Biden/Clinton Administration. "all the President's men", had nothing to do with Donald Trump. He was the mere victim. "Oh what a tangled web we weave"! This is serious stuff, folks.
  10. Anyhow, it isn't an agreement with the Taliban as you state, it's an agreement with the Afghan Government (as was). Since you were referring to Trump's "deal with the Taliban", I assumed you were familiar with it. But here is the actual Taliban Agreement. https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/Agreement-For-Bringing-Peace-to-Afghanistan-02.29.20.pdf
  11. There was no such deal. The U.S., after many months of consultations with NATO and our EU allies actually signed a conditional cease fire agreement with the Taliban, one side of the ongoing Afghan Civil War. It was endorsed by the U.N., and our NATO allies. Here it is: https://www.state.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/02/02.29.20-US-Afghanistan-Joint-Declaration.pdf "U.S. officials made clear at the time that the agreement was conditions-based and the failure of intra-Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw. One day before the Doha deal, a top aide to chief U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said the agreement was not irreversible, and “there is no obligation for the United States to withdraw troops if the Afghan parties are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith” during negotiations". https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-middle-east-taliban-doha-e6f48507848aef2ee849154604aa11be As the BBC reported, "(US Defence Secretary) Mark Esper said: "This is a hopeful moment, but it is only the beginning. The road ahead will not be easy. Achieving lasting peace in Afghanistan will require patience and compromise among all parties." He said the US would continue to support the Afghan government". As Trump said at the time, "I really believe the Taliban wants to do something to show we're not all wasting time," Mr Trump added. "If bad things happen, we'll go back with a force like no-one's ever seen." - https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-51689443 But Biden unilaterally abrogated that agreement, for his own reasons, without consulting our NATO allies, by insisting that ALL U.S.forces would be pulled from Afghanistan by August 31. This precluded an orderly withdrawal, which left the shaky Afghan government without U.S. Military support, or even giving the U.S. and its allies the means to enforce an orderly withdrawal. With the Taliban controlling 70% of the country, it became everyman for himself, and the Afghani government immediately folded and the U.S. and our allies raced to get their own troops out as fast as possible. Biden claims he "had no choice". "All in or All Out? Biden Saw No Middle Ground in Afghanistan" - https://www.nytimes.com/2021/08/28/us/politics/trump-taliban-biden-afghanistan.html And the rest, as they say, is history. Biden claims to have had "A Plan", but other than a series of ever changing and contradictory public statements, such a plan was never produced publicly, where it could be reviewed and debated, by all the players.
  12. Lol What I, or you "want" is of little consequence. What we "need" from the Leader of the Free World, is at least an an understanding of history, and the competence to effectively put into place policies to ensure that the mistakes of the past are not repeated ad infinitum. As the BBC put it: "What transpired four decades ago between America and Khomeini is not just diplomatic history. The US desire to make deals with what it considers pragmatic elements within the Islamic Republic continues to this day. So does the staunchly anti-American legacy that Khomeini left for Iran" How right they were! It's not brain surgery, but common sense, and here's at least one guy who figured it out over 4 years ago. August 21, 2017 How right he was!
