    Default Washington, D.C.

    The director of the CIA just went off on Donald Trump. It was a long time coming.


    In an interview with the Wall Street Journal published Monday night,
    CIA Director John O. Brennan had finally had it. Brennan said Trump
    crossed "the line" by invoking Nazi Germany while talking about the
    intelligence community having, in Trump's words, "allowed" a dossier
    full of unconfirmed and salacious allegations about him leak into the
    public domain. ***

    Brennan didn't hold back, saying Trump has a right to challenge the intelligence community -- but not in this manner.

    ďItís when there are allegations made about leaking or about dishonesty or a
    lack of integrity, thatís where I think the line is crossed,Ē Brennan
    said.

    Trumpís troubles have just begun

    From all this we can say Trump is on rather thin ice with voters. They
    expect great things but are gloomy about his ability to govern and do a
    good job. They donít like him concealing his taxes and they are pretty
    sure Russia helped him out in the election. Trump may find out that
    expectations about his conduct and ethics rise once he becomes
    president. If he doesnít rise to the occasion, Republicans will be less
    inclined to follow him and the midterms could prove dicey.

    My brother and many of my friends are going to be in DC on Friday (Saturday & Sunday too).
    When we went to the Restoring Honor rally back in '08 we had to walk from the train/bus station to the event site = which meant we had to pass through Al Sharptons counter-rally. After the event as we were walking back to the station some of Sharptons "supporters" spit at us and threatened to gang rape my friends wife. Why? She had an American Flag patch on her backpack.

    Everyone going to the inauguration's going to have to stay frosty going and coming. It's outside the event where the Leftists are going to try and attack inauguration attendees.

    Bikers need to be especially aware on the roads going and coming from DC. I wouldn't put it past these *******s raming them on the road.
    Iíd rather be deplorable than despicable.

    When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves, in the course of time, a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.

    Some voters Tony not all and certainly not enough to force sedition. Some voters are threatening violence because they didn't get their way.
    But I get your point. I remain cautiously oppitimistic about a Trump presidency.

    PS: If you flip the coin some voters had to suck on the last 8 years. Just remember as the political pendulum swings from Left to Right (and back again) anything in the middle eventually gets eviscerated.
