Trump revealed submarine locations to Philippines president.

(IF this hasn't been posted.)

'A call transcript between President Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte reveals that Trump boasted about two U.S. nuclear submarines near North Korea.

Trump, who spoke by phone with Duterte on April 29, addressed the possibility of a strike on North Korea using the submarines. A transcript of the conversation was published by The Intercept.

We have a lot of firepower over there, Trump said in the transcript, an official document of the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs.

We have two submarines the best in the world we have two nuclear submarines not that we want to use them at all, Trump continues. Ive never seen anything like they are but we dont have to use this but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.'

2. And Fox News works to provide a distraction.

 

Philippines terror: Americans warned after church hostage-taking, policeman beheaded

The United States Embassy issued a warning to U.S. citizens in a southern Philippine city on Wednesday after terrorists linked to the Islamic State swept through the region, beheading a police chief, burning buildings, seizing a Catholic priest and his worshippers and raising the black flag of ISIS, officials said.

The embassy suspended mission personnel travel to Mindanao as they analyzed the chaos that has left at least 21 people dead.

"While the U.S. Embassy has no information that the events in Marawi City represent a direct threat to U.S. citizens or U.S. interests in the Philippines, we encourage U.S. citizens to review personal security plans, avoid large crowds and gatherings, and remain vigilant at all times," the embassy said in a statement.

Yet the Obama administration put out a warning in December which still stands.

Philippines Travel Warning

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens to avoid all non-essential travel to the Sulu Archipelago and through the southern Sulu Sea, and to exercise extreme caution when traveling to the island of Mindanao, due to continued terrorist threats, insurgent activities, and kidnappings.

They should be able to see that this makes Trumps BS look even worse.

3. I was in a good mood until I read this

What a complete and utter fucking moron! Why in the name of all that is holy would anyone in their right mind give him any military intel? We need someone in the military to stand up to him and tell him straight that he is a loose lipped son of a bitch and he will not be getting any more information.

4. I heard his Administration also leaked the names of the Manchester suicide

bomber to the media. UK intel people are said to be furious. They didn't want the bomber's family to know they were on to him and them. Consequently, they had to move quickly to make sure evidence wasn't destroyed. The Admin leaked more names "of interest" even after being scolded about the first leak.

And teerump supporters thought we were crazy to consider him "dangerous". Teerump is destroying our intelligence agencies and ability to defend ourselves.

5. Oh yes

That was in the news last night. He is incapable of keeping anything a secret. For the life of me, I cannot understand why our military and IC do not seem to comprehend this very basic premise: if you tell tRump anything, he will repeat it in public.

6. And other nations are now questioning whether they should share

their intel with us, leaving us less safe.

7. Looks like we found the leaker Trump was wanting

the FBI to hunt for. Turns out, it's Trump himself. What a whack job.
