Of course CPAC fawned over President Donald Trump. They helped create him

The comment came during an intelligence meeting on February 15 that was unrelated to the Trump-Russia story. And in the midst of barbecuing the media, Trump stepped back to say that he loves the First Amendment. The White House denied that Trump and his team pressured the Federal Bureau of Investigation to help the White House battle what it believes is erroneous reporting. Yet it is wholly incompatible with his assertions, at other times (or on the same day), that USA intelligence officials are leaking classified information to reporters - and must be ferreted out.

Trump criticized journalists for using anonymous sources in news stories that caused turmoil in the early days of his administration. Or are they real people providing real information, who need to be stopped? In it, Trump cites an "extremely credible source" in claiming former President Barack Obama's birth certificate "is a fraud". He speaks and tweets so frequently about plugging leaks that his consternation appears genuine. "He's a very, very substantial guy", Trump continued, the kind of guy for whom an annual summer trip to Paris with his wife had been "automatic".

Though his remarks were likely pre-written, he clearly diverged from their exact wording, riffing and going on tangents in his typical off-the-cuff style. "Before me. But now it's really going on".

His remarks were "arguably Mr Trump's most alarming statement on the subject of relations with Russia", Russia's global affairs committee chairman Konstantin Kosachev says. Spicer said Priebus then asked both FBI Director James Comey and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe if they would condemn the story publicly, which they declined to do.

That last phrase may have been one of the more alarming from Trump's address, implying, as it did, more extreme measures to come-the kind that might haunt the dreams of people fleeing repressive regimes or broken countries but were not contemplated in our Constitution.

Re: Is Trump right about the media after all? "I think there are multiple ways you can resist against Trump, and I think this is one way that's extremely effective".

How Trump is challenging the media to redefine its role
Priebus stood by Trump's comments, and complained about the way certain events from the past week had been covered by the media. Well, that's not good, considering Americans, from both parties, don't have such high regard for the country's political state.

"If Chairman Burr is discussing classified matters with the press and pre-judging the committee's investigation, all at the behest of the White House, it's hard to imagine how he could convince me or the public of his impartiality", Wyden said in a e-mail statement. There were no nine people. Let them say it to my face.

"They make up sources". They are the enemy of the people.

Yet here we are one year (and a carnival fire of an election) later, with conservatives eating up the president's same sick tune they were condemning him for 12 months ago!

He also wants to slap around the so-called RINOs - Republicans In Name Only. Mark Warner (D-Va.) had together sent a letter to the White House requesting the it preserve documents regarding possible involvement between the Trump administration or the his presidential campaign and the Russian government.

"Mr Trump's campaign slogan "Make America great again", if that means nuclear supremacy, will return the world to the worst times of the arms race in the '50s and '60s".
