The Conspiracy Guy #12: Just when things seemed to be “settling down” with Trump accepting the “One China” policy, suggesting new settlements on Palestinian land was not “helpful to peace”, informing the EU that the US will abide by the Iran nuclear agreement and nixing Rex Tillerson’s preference for Elliott Abrams as Deputy Secretary of State–catastrophe occurs in the form of the resignation/dismissal of National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, who has been the intelligence expert enabling The Donald to navigate the treacherous shoals of dealing with the US intel community.

Ian Welsh – Lessons for “The Resistance” from the Bush Resistance

Trump’s ban of travelers from seven Muslim countries spawned a large backlash, showing that “the resistance” is still a thing.
