>President Trump’s elevation of his chief political strategist to a major role in national security policy, and a White House order banning refugees from certain Muslim-majority countries from U.S. entry, appeared to come together as cause and effect over the weekend.

Stephen K. Bannon — whose nationalist convictions and hard-line oppositional view of globalism have long guided Trump — was directly involved in shaping the controversial immigration mandate, according to several people familiar with the drafting who requested anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

The order, which has ignited sweeping domestic and international backlash, came without the formal input of Trump’s National Security Council, the committee of top national security aides designed to ensure the president examines all policy issues from different perspectives.

In Trump’s case, the NSC has not yet been fully formed. Key department heads, including the secretary of state, have either not been confirmed or had little chance to be briefed by those under them.

But even as the mechanism for full consultation with defense, diplomatic, intelligence and other national security chiefs remains incomplete, Bannon’s policy influence was established late Saturday in a presidential directive that gave him something no previous president has bestowed on a political adviser: a formal seat at the NSC table.

The same directive appeared to downgrade the status of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of national intelligence — the president’s senior intelligence and military advisers under statute — by limiting their attendance to some meetings.

Former president Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Susan E. Rice, called the measure “stone cold crazy” in a tweet on Sunday. Former Obama defense secretary and CIA director Robert M. Gates, who said he was unconcerned about Bannon’s role, told ABC’s “This Week” that “pushing [the DNI and Joint Chiefs chairman] out of the National Security Council meetings, except when their specific issues are at stake, is a big mistake.”

Every president finds their judgment useful, “whether they like it or not,” Gates added.

President Bannon?

>While Mr. Trump long ago embraced Mr. Bannon’s politics, he would be wise to reconsider allowing him to run his White House, particularly after the fiasco over the weekend of the risible Muslim ban. Mr. Bannon helped push that order through without consulting Mr. Trump’s own experts at the Department of Homeland Security or even seeking deliberation by the N.S.C. itself. The administration’s subsequent modifications, the courtroom reversals and the international furor have made the president look not bold and decisive but simply incompetent.

You're referring to the actual title of the article that was posted. The original thread title claimed that Bannon had been an editor for RT. I could find no evidence for that. There are rules here, whether you like them or not.

I also posted links to two similar articles in this thread.

I think what d4c8ee was trying to say in >>114965 is that the previous poster was mistaken in their assessment and drogue & probe refueling was in fact the correct logical choice because the tankers available from carrier decks are limited, somewhat antiquated and are equipped with drogue & probe refueling gear & they're not scheduled to be replaced in the foreseeable future.
all of that what what I read into the picture.

If Trump wants to dump a bunch of money into new makes of the F-18, then maybe they can develop a boom refueling system for the new F-18s, but that would be way off in the future & probably won't happen. A biplane version for heavy lift, & extra tankage?

There were two notable Trumpworld headlines Wednesday morning. One was the news that Corey Lewandowski — Donald Trump's former campaign manager who remained part of his inner circle long after leaving that job — had just opened a “full service government relations and consulting firm” half a block from the White House.

The other was that the president-elect is apparently over “drain the swamp.”

That's according to Newt Gingrich, a top ally who told NPR in an interview that aired Wednesday morning that he was instructed not to use the phrase anymore because it has fallen out of favor with Trump.

“I'm told he now just disclaims that,” Gingrich said on “Morning Edition.” “He now says it was cute, but he doesn't want to use it anymore.”

Gingrich said he had “written what I thought was a very cute tweet about 'the alligators are complaining,'" but that “somebody wrote back and said they were tired of hearing this stuff.”

Gingrich actually drafted two tweets in recent days about draining the swamp — tweets that apparently earned him the rebuke.

The alligators are unhappy about draining the swamp. That is the explanation for the nonsense about subverting the electoral college.

There are other ways to commit war crimes, such as not providing medical aid to an uniformed enemy combatant, or not allowing an uniformed enemy combatant to surrender.... but this isn't an atrocity, it's just a war crime.

I didn't specify which though, so show me a list of the war crimes, please.

>Enjoy propping up third world dictators.
A native dictator who cares more about his people than the "multicultural" rebels that use mustard gas on the population. The rebels that got trained, funded, and armed by Obama.

Or the Saudi-Israeli controlled ISIS.... do I have to list the atrocities? Let alone war crime breaches? They burned a uniformed soldier alive. They put another into a tub of acid. For fucks sake this is who you are supporting.

Yet you can't give me one war crime by the "dictator".

Meanwhile, as predicted, moderate rebels are leaving their attempts to fight a virtual "Islamic State" and the very real Syrian government and just try to salvage what they can get with that disappearing support.

>Demoralized by the loss of Aleppo and at odds over foreign ties, Syria's two most important rebel groups have turned on one another this week. The fight in northern Syria, particularly in Idlib province, has pitted Ahrar al-Sham against Jabhat Fatah al-Sham. The Salafist groups historically have had strong ties, even as Jabhat Fatah al-Sham targeted other rebel factions, which were themselves divided.

>The latest dispute erupted amid growing mistrust over shifting political alliances, particularly when it comes to foreign backing. Jabhat Fatah al-Sham is under increasing pressure as the United States ramps up its targeted strikes against its leadership and as Turkey toughens its stance on the group. This has made it much more difficult for it to ignore the close links that other rebel groups maintain with the United States and other foreign backers And the concern is not just that the foreign backers will crack down on certain rebel groups but also that foreign backing distracts from the rebels' primary cause, deposing Assad.

Apparently, failure of Aleppo was not accepted lightly.

It was a bright cold day in January, and 1984 was back on the best seller list.
Readers have been buying up George Orwell's classic dystopian novel in recent days, driving it to number two on Amazon's best selling books list as of Tuesday night. The spike in popularity seemed to come in the wake of Kellyanne Conway defending Sean Spicer's falsehoods about Donald Trump's inauguration crowd size as "alternative facts." Many on social media compared the phrase to the "NewSpeak" employed in 1984.
This is not the first time the book sales have spiked in response to political events: it enjoyed a stint on best seller lists in 2013 after Edward Snowden leaked NSA documents, when many compared the agency to "Big Brother."

President Trump used his first full day in office to wage war on the media, accusing news organizations of lying about the size of his inauguration crowd as Saturday’s huge protests served notice that a vocal and resolute opposition would be a hallmark of his presidency.

With Americans taking to the streets in red and blue states alike to emphatically decry a president they consider reprehensible and, even, illegitimate, Trump visited the Central Intelligence Agency for a stream-of-consciousness airing of grievances — including against journalists, whom he called “the most dishonest human beings on Earth.”

Shortly thereafter, press secretary Sean Spicer addressed the media for the first time from the White House, where he yelled at the assembled press corps and charged it with “sowing division” with “deliberately false reporting” of Trump’s inauguration crowd.

Trump claimed that the crowd for his swearing-in stretched down the Mall to the Washington Monument. It did not. Trump accused television networks of showing “an empty field” and reporting that he drew just 250,000 people to witness Friday’s ceremony.

“It looked like a million, a million and a half people,” Trump said. “It’s a lie. We caught [the media]. We caught them in a beauty.”

During his 2009 inaugural address, President Obama’s crowd extended that far, and a side-by-side comparison of aerial photos from both inaugurations clearly shows that Obama’s crowd was much larger than Trump’s.

Spicer echoed his boss’s assertion about the inauguration, insisting from behind the podium at the White House press briefing room that more than 700,000 people stretched down the Mall to the Washington Monument.

I thought Carter's pronounced "wtf" looked like the most worthy of a zoom, but sleeping Cheney, "i don't understand whats happening" Bush and "I hope this is over quick so I can go smoke a joint in my limo" Obama all had potential.
To be fair to Bush, he always looks like that because his facial features are too closely grouped (this is a common side effect of prognathism, which in turn is a common side effect of inbreeding, especially amongst European royalty).
What I most would have liked to have seen is the haunting, ghostly specter of doom hanging over all RINOs who didn't support Trump in the election, Paul Ryan number one of them. I bet that guy doesn't last 6 more months as speaker.
