Urging Calm Amidst Hysteria On #Turkey #Syria- 1- Without explicit green-light from #USA it will be a very limited (for show) maneuver; 2- This is being used here in #Turkey for temporary political gain (uniting the opposition with current admin); 3- #Russia also has put limits
Take in the macro picture (Forest instead of the trees): A major offensive by #Turkey is opposed by: #USA #Syria #Russia & #Iran. Only a brief limited muscle-flexing show is allowed. #GeopoliticalTheater
Here it is #Turkey “Still Preparing”. For the last 5 days, 1 minute they say “we are going in shortly, as in the next 24 hrs”, the next minute “we are preparing” or “we are waiting for XYZ ...”. The written on stone “Sep 30” deadline in #Syria expired 9 days and 11 hrs ago.

[Short thread] So my 9yo kid has recently become aware of the vague concept of "hackers" and "hacking things," likely via word-of-mouth from school-mates who've been sucked into some weird YouTube channels.
Since he sees me working from home regularly in my role as a Sales Engineer with a cloud security company, he then quickly reached the conclusion that I must be a hacker. I did not disabuse him of this notion, despite my total lack of any real hacking skills 😅
He has spent the past few days asking if I would "show him how to hack something." Given that he's 9 and has lived his entire life in a touch-enabled, iPad-centric world, I had to put some thought into how I was gonna approach this.

(1) Thread: Changes at the DOJ.

OK, give me more than 5 minutes to research and write this thread. There are some initials points to be made, though. Tapping Sessions' Chief of Staff Matt Whitaker as acting AG is a good sign that the positive achievements will continue. Also:
(2) That's from the story below. I've also read and have yet to confirm, that Rosenstein was taken off the Mueller probe oversight. If true, that's good for Rosenstein IMO. (ICYMI, I respect & admire both Sessions & RR.)…
(3) Jeff Sessions is a tough guy. He won't be feeling bitter over this... like me, he focuses on the positive, and knows that his historic achievements on the law and order front have saved many lives, and reduced much suffering. He's now free to campaign for conservatives, too.

Please read all 2000+ pages @LarrySchweikart ... I respect your opinion, but I do disagree with you on this matter. Obama did the exact same with "appropriated" funds after authorization to carry out his agenda. This is no different, PLUS it falls under "National Security"
The President of the United States, by definition, is charged as a primary function for National Security. In the Constitution. Trump made it crystal clear he signed the Omnibus SPENDING bill for that reason alone. Begrudgingly.
The military spending, something he was after from day 1, was included, and at a very healthy amount. There are also appropriations for various other items Trump wanted, but the military was by far the biggest win.
