    I know Thomas Wictor believes that NYT’s got skunked (at least he did a few days ago, he is such a prolific tweeter I do not read all his tweets) and that was my thought also. I think this is a Art of War move by the White House. I don’t think that the source is real. I think it is a fantastic precision deception.

    Why would an undercover saboteur tip his or her hat? If I’m working undercover why would I assure people not to worry that I’m working undercover? It is an irrational thing to do. It could be that the writer is incredibly stupid and therefore not part of the administration hierarchy but simply has a grandiose view of themselves.

    What really tipped my thinking after seeing Wictor was thinking the same way was that our good and wise Vice President said he would take a lie detector test to prove that he didn’t write the op-ed 😂.

    Come on ! The Vice President of the United States of America is saying that he will take a lie detector test over an anonymous source op-ed?

    I’m calling Sun Tzu gamesmanship. Sun Tzu has a chapter on energy, I believe this falls under Chapter 5:6 Indirect tactics, efficiently applied, are inexhaustible as Heaven and Earth, unending as the flow of rivers and streams; like the sun and moon, they end but to begin anew; like the four seasons, they pass away to return once more.

    Pence slams ‘disappointing’ Obama speech, says he’d take lie detector to prove he didn’t write NYT Op-Ed

    This “mole” article is good for President Trump (full disclosure I haven’t read the article) .

    How effective is President Trump’s style of warfare? Let’s see he gave away Lindsey Graham’s phone number, he called Graham, a disgrace, one of the worst representatives of any representative in the United States, said that he’s one of the dumbest human beings I’ve ever seen and just to round things out candidate Trump said of Lindsey Graham “I don’t think he could run for dog catcher in this state and win again. I really don’t. Other than that, I think he’s wonderful.”

    And yet Grahm is now going to the mat for President Trump. Telling the democrats to win an election if they want a say in who sits on the SCOTUS. And for good measure Graham told them he doesn’t care how many people call President Trump a bastard.

    That is genius persuasion any way you slice it.

    Any thoughts?
