    Looking for anything to excuse what your boy Trumpy does. Normalizing the abnormal.
    I did enough research to read your link. It's an executive order covering classified access for federal employees, (not former federal employees.) Know why it's an executive order? Because classification power stems from the executive branch, i.e. the President, not congress. Because the President has complete authority over classification of information, and who has access to it. You can argue all you want about whether rescinding Brennan's access is right or wrong, but your suggestion that it didn't follow a proper procedure or was illegal in some way is complete bs.

    Correct. The President is a petty, whiny, POS. That's the point and has been the entire point since he took office.

    Normalizing the abnormal. Every president does it. No big deal.

    Yep, got it.

    What's it gonna take?
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

    Your assumption means that they are only consulted when someone feels the need, my assumption is that they are constantly being consulted.

    Instead of just saying it's a big deal, explain why.

    On the other hand, I think it's a big deal that they are willing to spend their time and effort to provide advice for free. I appreciate the fact that they are willing to sacrifice themselves to provide this service for free.

    Again, using yourself is a bad example, since you may be capable of providing input on a very specific item. These guys have a very global reference to work with. So working/not working- you need to provide a much better argument than just that they are not employed by the government and you think that's a big deal. Why is it a big deal?

    I'm not downplaying it at all. Quite the opposite.
