'Very unstable' Trump 'did not have the grasp to understand' national security threats: former admin

TFG is basically senile or not competent to be POTUS

Reacting to a report that Donald Trump was sharing highly sensitive government documents with visitors at his Bedminster resort, a former national security adviser to ex-vice president Mike Pence said she was very concerned but not overly surprised.

Appearing on MSNBNC with host Alex Witt, Olivia Troye pointed out that in her dealings with the former president who is now facing possible Espionage Act charges, he was very cavalier with sensitive information.

Reflecting on the new revelations that could bolster special counsel Jack Smith's federal investigation of Trump, Troye stated there were always concerns about the former president.

"I think Trump is seriously a very unstable and unfit leader," she told the MSNBC host. "He was very trivial when it came to matters of national security, and he did not have the grasp to understand the gravity of certain situations; the strategic understanding of what it meant internationally and regionally when some of these decisions were being discussed, and potentially being made."

President Biden did bring a Peloton to the WH

My oldest child does an hour or so every day on his peloton. There were stories that President Biden would not be able to bring his peloton to the White House due to the WiFi connection. They evidenly solved this issue.
Can anyone imagine TFG on a peloton?

Poll shows wide support in U.S. for Trump criminal investigations

The investigations into TFG are not witch hunts. TFG is only running for office in order to try to stall or interfere with these investigations. TFG's efforts to claim that these investigations are witch hunts are not working.

But new polling from NPR, “PBS Newshour” and Marist shows he’s sorely mistaken (as if the scant protests in his honor weren’t clear enough). Contrary to Trump’s posturing, a majority of Americans think the criminal investigations into his behavior are fair.

So, not exactly — or even remotely — the same as everybody thinking he’s innocent.


....According to the poll:

A majority of Americans (56%) think the investigations into former President Donald Trump are fair. 41%, though, consider the probes to be a “witch hunt.” Perceptions align closely with partisanship with 87% of Democrats and 51% of independents reporting the investigations are above board. Nearly one in five Republicans (18%) agree. Most Republicans (80%), though, think the investigations are a “witch hunt.”

The poll also found a “plurality of Americans (46%) think the former president has done something illegal, and an additional 29% consider Trump to have done something unethical but not illegal.” Only 23% of people polled said they thought Trump had done nothing wrong.

That translates into 3 out of 4 Americans believing that Trump engaged in some form of misconduct. Needless to say, those are not great numbers for a presidential candidate.

Trump attorneys haven't found classified document former president referred to on tape


Attorneys for Donald Trump turned over material in mid-March in response to a federal subpoena related to a classified US military document described by the former president on tape in 2021 but were unable to find the document itself, two sources tell CNN.

Prosecutors issued the subpoena shortly after asking a Trump aide before a federal grand jury about the audio recording of a July 2021 meeting at Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, New Jersey. On the recording, Trump acknowledges he held onto a classified Pentagon document about a potential attack on Iran.

Prosecutors sought “any and all” documents and materials related to Mark Milley, Trump’s chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Iran, including maps or invasion plans, the sources say. A similar subpoena was sent to at least one other attendee of the meeting, another source tells CNN.

The sources say prosecutors made clear to Trump’s attorneys after issuing the subpoena that they specifically wanted the Iran document he talked about on tape as well as any material referencing classified information – like meeting notes, audio recordings or copies of the document – that may still be Trump’s possession.

The fact that Trump’s team was unable to produce the document underscores the challenges the government has faced in trying to recover classified material that Trump took when he left the White House and in understanding the movement of government records that Trump kept.

(Jewish Group) Houston ranked among worst offenders for anti-Semitism

I wish that I could say that I was surprised by this report

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The numbers are in, and it's not good for Houston. A yearly study done by the Anti-Defamation League says anti-Semitism is up nationwide and Texas is one of the worst states.....

According to the ADL, 2022 was the worst year to date when it comes to recorded incidents of hate toward the Jewish community. About 3,697 incidents towards individuals were reported.

Houston is logged in the southwest region, of the more than 3,000 reports, 73 were in the southwest, accounting for an 87% spike in the last year. Of those 73 reports in the region, more than half were from Houston alone.

"We're also seeing people are more comfortable expressing anti-Semitism and hate whether that is in school, whether that is some people who are entrusted with an elected office as well," ADL South West Director Mark Toubin said.

The report accounts for harassment, vandalism, and assault. There was also a doubling in activities organized by white supremacist groups.
