    Absolutely right. The market soared on the positive news of Pfizers vaccine advancements. Trump did squat. All he is doing right now is more rhetoric and continued crying about losing.

    As they say, "If you cannot dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit". That has been Trumps game plan for his entire term which is now coming to an end.

    He'll probably go and do a few rallies in Georgia for the run offs.

    The fat fuck needs his ego massaged.

    Intel officials worry what ‘financially vulnerable’ Trump will do with classified info after he leaves office: report

    With Donald Trump slated to step down as president of the United States on January 20th of next year, national security experts and officials are worried by the prospect of the outgoing president using America’s secrets to benefit himself financially in future business deals overseas.


    According to a report from the Washington Post, Trump often used hints about the country’s nuclear capabilities to cow other countries to bend to his will, and now officials worry he will use what he knows to curry favor with the governments of countries where he might want go forward with real estate ventures.

    “No new president has ever had to fear that his predecessor might expose the nation’s secrets as President-elect Joe Biden must with Trump, current and former officials said,” the Post reports. “Not only does Trump have a history of disclosures, he checks the boxes of a classic counterintelligence risk: He is deeply in debt and angry at the U.S. government, particularly what he describes as the “deep state” conspiracy that he believes tried to stop him from winning the White House in 2016 and what he falsely claims is an illegal effort to rob him of reelection. “

    According to former CIA official David Priess, “Anyone who is disgruntled, dissatisfied or aggrieved is a risk of disclosing classified information, whether as a current or former officeholder. Trump certainly fits that profile.”

    Jack Goldsmith, who ran the Office of Legal Counsel at the Justice Department in the George W. Bush administration agreed but held out a bit of hope the president won’t do much damage.


    “A knowledgeable and informed president with Trump’s personality characteristics, including lack of self-discipline, would be a disaster. The only saving grace here is that he hasn’t been paying attention,” he told the Post.


    Earlier reports from the New York Times stated that the president has approximately $421 million in debt coming due soon, and the president is expected to be facing massive legal bills after losing the protection of the office from lawsuits and criminal charges.

    “Experts agreed that the biggest risk Trump poses out of office is the clumsy release of information. But they didn’t rule out that he might trade on secrets, perhaps in exchange for favors, to ingratiate himself with prospective clients in foreign countries or to get back at his perceived enemies. When he leaves office, Trump will be facing a crushing amount of debt, including hundreds of millions of dollars in loans that he has personally guaranteed,” the report states.


    According to Larry Pfeiffer, who served as chief of staff to former CIA Director Michael Hayden, “People with significant debt are always of grave concern to security professionals. The human condition is a frail one. And people in dire situations make dire decisions. Many of the individuals who’ve committed espionage against our country are people who are financially vulnerable.”

    The reason the stock market grew under baldy orange loser was him adding money to the national debt and flooding the markets with it so the only place to find a profit is in stocks and shares. The reason it crashed is because baldy orange loser fucked up the pandemic response and brought the economy to a screeching halt.

    The reason it just jumped under Biden is because the market thinks he's going to sort out this pandemic mess baldy orange loser created.

    More fucking horseshit from the losers.

    President Donald Trump-untitled-jpg

    Except "Operation Warp Speed" gave billions to Astrazenica, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson... and not a fucking cent to Pfizer.

    Pfrizer have a deal to get paid to deliver 100m doses of vaccine if they develop it, and that's it.

    Baldy orange loser and his team of fucking losers cannot stop lying even after they've lost.

    The fact that he's obese and out of shape?

    He claims it's 2, but people that have played with him say he's the biggest cheater they've ever played with.

    The trump crime syndicate is not over yet. A three bell siren is going off, as the Trump administration has carried out sweeping changes atop the Defense Department's civilian leadership structure, removing several of the its most senior officials and replacing them with perceived loyalists to the president. Prepare for a possible hail mary coup attempt.

    One would hope that the senior military would just tell them to fuck the fuck off. No love lost there as I understand it.

    I had an interesting chat with a few colleagues last night on a business con call. There are many that feel the Trump really doesn't want to be President but rather a Ruler or Dictator like his buddy Putin and XI. While all hypothetical and conspiracy theory talk it was also discussed that his entire plan has been to find a way to eliminate the 8 year term, bring in his loyalist cronies so he can remain that "Ruler".

    Trumps behavior clearly indicates he cannot lose.

    Trump and the Secretary of Defense are Number 1 and 2 in the chain of command. Sad as it is, they are the seniors.

    Esper wouldn't bring in the troops to quell the protests. See where this is going yet?

    I hope there's no protests before then. But you know there will be with over 2 months of shenanigans to go.
