They already know what kind of porn I watch, why the increase in scope?

You know, I feel sorry for that kid. All he wanted to do was draw anime chicks fighting dinosaurs, and stream Minecraft videos.

Pity his dad is insane.

I feel sorry for everyone who has ever had to associate with that scumbag against their will, but particularly with the kids who can't help who their parents are.

I don't know what I would do in a situation where my dad was president and a horrible human being, because you're raised and taught life's lessons by him, it's like brainwashing over a period of years. Here's a guy supposedly never changed a single diaper. My daughter asked me about stealing yesterday and I had to explain to her why it was wrong. I doubt that Trump ever had an inclination to do such a thing.

Anyway I get the feeling some of his children should know better by now, but it's hard for me to pass judgement because we all have different experiences.

All right off my soapbox.

He probably believes "Cyber Command" is a Saturday morning cartoon.
 
2017-08-18 03:23:54 PM  
So I am not seeing how this helps undermine US cyber defenses, which is my standard rule for why Trump would do something. Is this like Daddy Kelly making the Toddler-in-Chief eat his vegetables? Is he playing airplane with Trump?

This sounds like a good thing.

Is that possible?

Good. Barron really needs to get out more, anyway...

And reviled.

On the bright side, he can afford the best therapy money can buy for as long as he likes.

I'm just going to say that NSA is pretty good at this sort of thing and leave it at that.

Sounds to me like he's either a) looking to undermine privacy, or b) he was so busy this week a not-so-bad idea slipped through.

Give it time, He'll try to privatize it of have Barron chair the committee or something.

He's doing what he often does - saying something that sounds big.  He may even sit down and sign some blank paper or claim a legislative victory about it.  Let's see if something materially happens.  My guess is no.

I heard he's considering Rex "Power" Colt for commanding officer of the Cybercommandos.  But he'll probably just give them over to Colonel Ike Sloan.  Those Mk. III's should have been phased out long ago.

I think there's a lot of good points for sticking this with the military, but the NSA is also a good venue for this project. Best of both worlds might cost more, but I think making this a joint purview would cover all bases.

I'm guessing this was Kelly's idea. Everyone else surrounding the president is too stupid and/or self-absorbed to think of doing anything good for the country. (I'm looking at you Mr. & Mrs. Ivanka)


Side note, I really wonder how many facepalms General Kelly's forehead can take.
 
2017-08-18 04:52:49 PM  
it's almost like he's doing regular presidentin' stuff.  how can that be?  i thought we had him cornered...
 
2017-08-18 04:54:01 PM  
Any of you actually believe he knows what this agency does? He had to have this explained with crayon drawings.
 
2017-08-18 05:06:02 PM  
Finally.  President Trump is doing something that Obama considered doing, but didn't.  He's helping to complete the man's legacy.

Good job!
 
2017-08-18 05:07:31 PM  
He needs "the cyber" to keep the Russians away from his port.

Trump did not raise any of his children. They were raised by nannies and occasionally their mothers, but he was a virtual non-entity in their upbringing. He taught them nothing, except that unwavering loyalty to him is the only way to get him to pay attention to them. And also to never cross him, less they be written out of the will.
