This is interesting - Trump just quietly reshuffled the National Security Council, downgrading the role of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and taking them out of their perpetual rotation at all meetings. They still attend meetings where Trump is the chairman, but Principals Committee meetings are now only open to them if it's deemed their expertise is needed.

It might not seems like a big deal, but as was mentioned by one commentator, "... the Chairman (of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) is designated by law as the principal military advisor to the President and the NSC; it’s a lot easier to serve that function if you’re in the room and privy to all the conversations." Likewise with the intelligence community - excluding them because they won't go along with your latest big lie undermines their effectiveness, and further alienates them from the current administration.

He did replace them though - with his strategist (and former Brietbart editor), Steve Bannon....

Obviously, I am not in the pro-Trump camp.  So I tend to spot the anti-Trump stuff.  Even so, this surprised even me.   http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/donald-trump-mental-illness-narcisissm-us-president-psychologists-inauguration-crowd-size-paranoia-a7552661.html

Human flu is not here at all.  Our chickens and ducks are locked up by order from DEFRA as bird flu is in lincolnshire and lancashire (about 500 miles away) and they do not want it to spread.

How about there, Johnray?  And how are you?

Just a question:-  

 If the current Pontus accuses someone of something, can we dismiss it as a "trumped up charge"?
