Trump invites Russians to hack Hillary: ‘I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press’

Published

We don’t know for certain if Russian intelligence agencies are really helping Donald Trump win this year’s presidential election… but he now openly admits he wants their help.

During a press conference on Wednesday, Trump directly encouraged Russia to help him politically by releasing emails that were deleted from Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was Secretary of State.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you find the 33,000 emails that are missing,” he said. “I think you’ll be rewarded mightily by our press!”

It goes without saying that this is the first time that an American presidential candidate has openly called upon a foreign government to help him bring down his political opponent.

A wide range of security experts believe that Russian intelligence agencies are responsible for hacking and leaking embarrassing emails sent by officials at the Democratic National Committee that disparaged Bernie Sanders and his campaign.

Since then, questions have turned to whether Trump has any investments in Russia that might give the country influence over his decision making as president. Trump has denied any such investments, but nonetheless refuses to release his tax returns.

Ex-cult member imagines terrifying end game to Trump’s presidency: ‘He might take everyone with him — like Jim Jones’

Published

President Donald Trump exhibits many signs of "malignant narcissism," according to some psychologists, and his personality profile fits with other notorious cult leaders.

Steven Hassan, a mental health counselor and an expert on mind control, described the alarming similarities he sees between the president and cult leaders like the one whose control he fell under himself as a young man, in a new column for The Daily Beast.

"I have seen that profile up close," Hassan wrote. "Over 40 years ago, while a junior in college, I was recruited into a destructive mind control cult, the Unification Church, popularly known as the Moonies after its leader, Sun Myung Moon."

‘Crazy as a bag of hammers’ Lindsey Graham mocked for calling Trump’s too-late sanctions on Turkey a ‘game changer’

Published

As Kurd civilians are slaughtered in Syria after Donald Trump opened the door for Turkey to invade, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) came under withering ridicule for happily announcing the president's agreement to levy economic sanctions of Turkey as a "game changer."

The South Carolina conservative has been harshly critical of the president's decision to move U.S. military personnel out of Syria where they have served as a bulwark againts a Turkish invasion, and now that the slaughter has begun, Graham has been seeking a way to lessen the damage as people are slaughtered.

Late Sunday, Graham tweeted, "Just spoke with President @realdonaldTrump. I applaud his decision to work with Congress to stop Turkeys aggression in Syria through crippling economic sanctions. This decision by President Trump will be a game changer -- in all the wrong ways -- for Turkey."
