Here is an interesting video of Donald Trump and Melania after landing in Israel.
In the first clip, see if you catch their body language exchange.
What did you see?
It’s played in slow motion, if you missed it, a second time.
Many people are saying that Melanie swatted Trump’s hand away. The reality is, he reached half-way out for her to grab his hand. He didn’t reach for her hand. She tried to meet his hand half-way in the middle, but he already pulled his away in his typical insecure fashion, and what you see is Melania attempting to reach for him, but realizing he’s already pulled away–she makes that frustrated movement with her hand.
I don’t think these two have a great relationship, but I don’t think Melania is swatting Trump’s hand here as a rejection by itself. The one who rejects is Trump. He puts his hand out and then takes it away. Look at .29 seconds in. She extends her hand and he doesn’t grab it.
On May 15, 2017, General H.R. McMaster spoke out to the media and the public after the New York Times reported that President Trump shared highly classified information with the Russians.
H.R. McMaster said (watch here):
A brief statement for the record. There is nothing that the president takes more seriously than the security of the American people. The story that came out tonight as reported is false. The president of the foreign minister reviewed a range of common threats to our two countries, including threats to civil aviation. At no time, at no time, where intelligent sources or methods discussed. The president did not disclose any military operations that were not already publicly known. Two other senior officials who were present, including the secretary of the state, remember the meeting the same way and have said so. Going on the record should outweigh the anonymous sources. I was in the room. It didn’t happen. Thanks, everybody.
Two hours ago Reuters releases an article quoting H.R. McMaster who NOW criticized the leaks:
“In a concern about divulging intelligence they leaked actually not just the information from the meeting, but also indicated the sources and methods to a to a newspaper. I mean it doesn’t make sense,” (Reporting by Julia Harte Editing by Jeremy Gaunt)
You can’t have it both ways. You can’t deny that nothing was shared with the Russians that wasn’t already publicly known, yet conversely criticize that the inside leakers to the New York Times got it right–very right–down to the sources and methods, if it wasn’t shared with the Russians. If it wasn’t shared or was already public, then there would be no leaks and leakers. Right? It’s one or the other, but not both.
These two statements by McMaster validate that Trump did share highly classified information with the Russians–removing all doubts, and it shows me McMaster is not trustworthy because he’s willing to say two completely inconsistent statements. Both cannot be true.
Trump made a very telling statement this week. Did you catch it?
He said in discussions about firing Comey to the Russians, “I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off.” (Source)
Hmmm…. did you think about that?
He faced great pressure.
How does that work if you are not involved with Russia with any corrupt dealings?
If you are honest and not involved in any Russian entanglements, you would find any accusation laughable and baseless. There would be no pressure. It would actually be entertaining because you’d have nothing to fear. You’d know you are in the right. You’d shrug it off knowing the truth will come out and you’d likely not give it a second thought.
BUT…if you are a liar and have a lot to hide, you’d have pressure. Lots of it!
Firing Comey was a short term release on a much bigger pressure cooker. It’s only just getting started!
Liars leak big clues, you just have to pay close attention.
This is a very interesting video of Senator Graham (R- S.C.) talking about the fact that investigation on the Trump campaign and Russia is now a criminal investigation. Watch as he talks about it. You can literally feel his breath is short. It’s as if the wind is literally knocked out of him by the news.
I do believe many people (like Graham) didn’t see this coming, but it’s been apparent there have been many lies even before Trump took office and the clues to deception indicated this was a very serious matter. These lies have been told at the expense of the American people and our democracy, and they will come out.
The ball is finally starting to roll! It’s nice to see. I value our democracy and want it protected!
There is hope the truth will finally prevail and be revealed.
