This news seems fakey: Kompromat

The Trump debauchery w/ hookers in Moscow story there… I’m not buying it. The details have the feel of being calibrated to tickle the outrage prurience of about every political leaning. Doesn’t feel organic, feels contrived.

Other thing is… I’ve been reading the supposed set of raw intelligence docs on Buzzfeed. Being worldly in at least the ways of process and so moved here to contemplate how intelligence apparatus’ must work on a day to day basis, I can perceive that an operative’s grind is just writing notes every day as a matter of creating knowledge artifacts. This creation of knowledge artifacts has analogs in many industries now actually, and there’s good software built for the process.

…These raw notes look like shit, like someone has an unending Word document on their desktop devoted for this purpose. I just have my doubts this is normative practice these days in a world of clever software.

    To be honest, I am kind of inclined to believe it, because it is consistent with the kind of person he is, and this is the kind of thing that the Russians do to people like Trump.

    That said, there is no way to know if it is true or not. We will just have to wait for the video to appear (or not).

    In the mean time, I am enjoying the Trump Circus. What a buffoon! It has been a long time since we have had a president we can laugh at. Noticed that his approval rating is under 40%. Most Presidents, as they are approaching inauguration, tend to be between 60 to 65% approval. Sad!
