...age 76, from pancreatic cancer.

RIP 'Retha.
Brennan's push-back & "outrage" on this makes me wish . . . momentarily . . . that we had the type of government where he could be "collected" off the street, dealt the harshest of treatment, including waterboarding, & then dumped back onto the street in such a state of mental disorder that he walks into heavy traffic & is dispatched amidst rapidly moving automobiles.

He is a piece of human debris that unfairly sucks precious oxygen from the atmosphere.

Perhaps IDP we should not look at it as chronicling the decline but preserving the remnants to pass on to those who will need that info.

History used to be passed on through oral repetitive story telling -- the sharing of great ideas.

I see my discussions and saving of books as part of that effort.   

The staffer also said “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble,” . . .

Hmm. . . sounds stereotypically, uhm . . . black. File under "Shiftless"; back up file under "Lazy" & "No Account".

FLASHBACK: Omarosa Was Fired or Tossed From Govt. Positions Under Clinton… FOUR Different Times

Omarosa goes 5 for 5!

Maybe this is what President Trump really meant by this tweet last week.

    5 for 5!

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 8, 2018

Here’s something that is not making many headlines in the liberal mainstream media.
Omarosa was fired four times by the Clinton White House.
They say she was very “disruptive.”

    …This is not, in fact, the first time Omarosa has left a White House job under less-than-glorious circumstances. In her 20s, she was a political appointee in the Clinton administration where, according to People, she held four jobs in two years.

    During a 2004 Q&A in Washington, D.C., shortly after she gained national attention as a contestant on the first season of The Apprentice, Omarosa spoke somewhat bitterly of her time in government:

    I have done logistics and advance and event planning for the White House under the Gore staff … At 23, I got appointed to the White House. That was not a place to learn how to be a young professional. That’s a very difficult environment, because they don’t believe in training. They just kind of throw you in the fire.

    According to a former Gore staffer, though, Omarosa never did logistics or advance work for the vice-president; she worked as a scheduling correspondent, responding to various invitations Gore received.

    The staffer also said “she didn’t do her job, and it got everybody in trouble,” and was soon sent to work in the White House personnel office, which then transferred her again to the Commerce Department, where she held two different positions. In the last, she was reportedly “asked to leave as quickly as possible, she was so disruptive.”


President Trump has revoked a security clearance belonging to former CIA Director John Brennan, claiming his "erratic behavior" should disqualify him from having access to sensitive information.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made the announcement Wednesday, weeks after revealing that Trump was considering revoking the security clearances of a half-dozen former U.S. officials.

"As the head of the executive branch and the commander in chief, I have a unique constitutional responsibility to protect the nation’s classified information, including by controlling access to it," Sanders said in a statement from the president Wednesday. "Today, in fulfilling the responsibility, I have decided to revoke the security clearance of John Brennan, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency."

Sanders acknowledged that former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies are traditionally able to keep their security clearances after their time serving in the government is complete. Sanders said that any traditional justifications for Brennan to retain access to classified information do not apply.

"Historically, former heads of intelligence and law enforcement agencies have been allowed to retain access to classified information after their government service, so that they can consult with their successors regarding matters about which they may have special insights and as a professional courtesy," Sanders said. "Neither of the justifications supports Mr. Brennan’s continued access to classified information."

"At this point in my administration, any benefits that senior officials might glean from consultations with Mr. Brennan are now outweighed by the risks posed by his erratic conduct and behavior," Sanders said.

A little slower than it used to be.  I blame reality fatigue.  Welcome back!

That’s a big factor I think. When this whole idea of online forums began, it was really the advent of the proliferation of opinions by everyday people online. It was found nowhere, now it is found everywhere - facebook and twitter being 99% of it. The reality of the dire times we’re in is in your face 7 days a week, and if you’re not on social media, the mainstream media is there to remind us every day how f**ked up everything is.

I spend less time here as a result. Not because I don’t care about you guys or this forum. But because chronicling the downfall of our nation and Western civilization is depressing.
  She's been getting away with murder for years now the time has come to pay the piper.
