Who watches the watchers? How do we know the doctors conducting the mental health screenings aren't letting their personal political views corrupt their professional opinions?

In the future, we will have technology that allows us to look into memory. Stimulate the mind with hypnosis and map out the signals sent from synapse to synapse and decode them and put it on the screen.

Citizens to be "examined" would require a warrant. But if you want to be a politician then it's part of the deal going in. Make politics honest again for the first time.

Someone's been watching too much Black Mirror.

And we all know how it would really play out. Sure, the low level flunky squad would be given to even more boring and uninteresting useless toolbags. But the high level shitbags in political offices --- that tech would simply be used to get blackmail info in order to leverage upper echelon people. Like the whole Skull and Bones "truth chamber" nonsense. Or how Epstein's Island is/was (probably) really a honeypot trap used by foreign intelligence agencies against our domestic pedos in office.

Anything you think could be used for good is always corrupted and turned into another tool for evil. Because the people running things are irredeemable and beyond redemption.

Yup, that is the crux.

Many of the mood screening questions are very subjective.

However, the parts that determine cognitive impairment are objective.

Are the same doctors who try to cast FUD at POTUS's mental health the same that were vehemently denying that anything was wrong with HRC during the election?

It seems like almost everyone and everything I once admired and considered sacred is now lying in the dust, so you'll have to forgive my cynicism...

Maybe we should require the assclown reporters in the WH Press Pool to undergo the same medical and psych exams that POTUS went through? Judging by their reactions to the results of the POTUS exams, I would say that many of them could benefit from a good psych exam.

The behavior displayed by the press corps during that presser was an embarrassment. Not sure how, as grown adults, they allow themselves to act that way and then bemoan the fact that we call them assclowns.

I would call them paste eaters but do not want to trigger anyone on the board:)

I think that's a slippery slope, and as others have said or inferred, it's just as likely to be used as a weapon.

Hell, what about a SCOTUS candidate who doesn't believe in climate change, reproductive rights, and believes that Constitutional rights originally were granted by a Supreme Being? What an anti-science throwback he'd be, according to any liberal head-shrinker. CNN would run wall-to-wall panels with unknown "experts" stating that such a person is unsuitable for such a prestigious position in our government, and probably should be medicated and kept away from small children and purse-borne dogs... and he's probably racist. 'Cuz, you know-- white (wink wink).
Agree. I see it in the same vein as elected officials not having to go through the normal clearance process. The fact that they were elected into that office is enough to grant the clearance (voters vetted them during the campaign) and any attempt to run them through normal clearance processes (i.e. SSBIs) would be likely weaponized.

Driving home last night I heard on Hannity that the investigation into the Uranium deal involving the Clintons has been reopened and has been going on for months. Anyone hear the same I can't seem to find much on it. I also heard they reopened the email investigation.

Oh man, on the one hand I hear what you're saying and concur but on the other hand I just think there's gotta be a floor to that dynamic. I do think that your alternative (politically weaponized vetting process) would be another undesirable, yet guaranteed, outcome. So I'm not sure what an appropriate alternative would be. Perhaps only Presidents get that sort of treatment? I don't know, but everything about the 'voters vetting the person during the campaign' dynamic is cringe-worthy. Especially in today's atmosphere. I'd almost rather a clean individual be denied clearance rather than a dirty traitor given access.

The latest info I could find was from Jan 15th saying that the former head of a Md transit firm has been selected as a sacrificial lamb and indicted. https://www.newsmax.com/politics/judicial-watch-tom-fitton-federal-indictment-maryland/2018/01/15/id/837217/

Also, the Clinton Foundation is also under investigation again too. But the billion $$$$ question is whether or not anything will come of this or if it's just another cock-tease show the Gov likes to provide the plebes to give the illusion that stuff gets done and that people are actually held accountable for things.

Hope springs eternal yet again, but cynicism always keep expectations low.

Thank you for the information. I agree with you, I'm still routing for justice but not going to get my hopes up to much.

Steel yourself for this one, DD...take a few deep breaths ;

CNN= Cuckhold News Network

Yes, they have actually come out and posted an article extolling the virtues of allowing another man to bang your wife. And its not a parody.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/25/health/cuckolding-sex-kerner/index.html

#Cuckholdnewsnetwork is also great on Twitter now.

This is just glorious. They aren't even attempting to hide their full court press for degeneracy. I hope to God that POTUS catches wind of this and tweets something savage about it.

I saw that and refrained from posting, thank you. Although I did do a hefty eye roll and jog to the French press to get another shot of caffeine immediately afterwards. That headline is just so damn cringeworthy.
