Misadventures of a minority-elect President 14

Trump’s pernicious diatribe against the media at the CPAC, Michael Moore warns that Trump will do everything he ‘promised’ to do – be it legally or illegally, back to the business of illegal never-ending war as usual, how our minority-elect President used Muslim and Mexican bashing to recruit supporters, blocking protests under the guise of Trump’s fallacious ‘law and order’ platform, the Donald is a one-man 9/11, our wannabe dictator still living in the land of delusion, bureaucratic revolt against Trump’s Muslim ban lies, Bernie Sander’s kick ass response to yet another ignorant Trump tweet, another ignorant, misleading Trump tweet from the twit that bitches about “fake news” that grossly misleads his delusional comparison of the national debt in his first month to Obama’s, Americans split on impeachment and other revealing polls, spiking Intel that contradicts his Muslim travel ban and more.

Trump attacks media in diatribe to Conservative Political Action Conference article from the World Socialist Web Site. –

“President Donald Trump delivered a violent, ultra-right speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) on Friday, attacking the media and reprising many of the “America First” themes outlined in his inauguration address one month ago.

The annual CPAC conference was a festival of political reaction. Trump boycotted the event during the election campaign last year, amidst sharp divisions within the Republican Party over his candidacy. But this year’s gathering of fascistic-minded activists and college Republicans greeted him with rapturous applause, repeatedly interrupting his speech with chants of “USA! USA!”

Among those addressing the meeting, held this year in National Harbor, Maryland, just south of Washington, DC, was Trump’s chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who spoke alongside White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus on Thursday.

In his remarks, Bannon said the administration would press forward aggressively with what he called the “deconstruction of the administrative state”—that is, the dismantling of social programs and government regulations—along with an expansion of police state measures and the implementation of a nationalist trade war economic policy…”

5 Trump myths about illegal immigration article from Yahoo! News. –
http://finance.yahoo.com/news/5-trump-myths-about-illegal-immigration-193622157.html

“The deportation force is being mustered.

President Donald Trump is making good on his campaign promise to round up and deport undocumented immigrants more aggressively than prior presidents. He recently told business leaders at the White House that a “military operation” is underway to roust people who are in the country illegally, and John Kelly, the Director of Homeland Security, recently outlined plans to hire 15,000 new immigration agents to help with the work. That will take time—and require Congressional funding—but the Trump administration already seems to be ramping up enforcement of existing immigration laws.

Trump has blamed undocumented immigrants for taking American jobs, committing violent crimes and milking US taxpayers. There are certainly anecdotal examples of each, but Trump also applies his usual hyperbole to the issue, while overlooking the important role undocumented workers play in the US economy. They account for about 4.5% of the American workforce and are crucial workers in industries such as agriculture, construction and hospitality. If Trump intends to kick an estimated 11 million undocumented people out of the country, it could upend many businesses and harm the economy more than it helps…”

Where does the Trump saga end? article from Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/how-trump-might-redefine-the-presidency-100007834.html

“Where is all this headed, and how does it end?

These are the questions you hear all over Washington right now. Which is strange, because normally you wouldn’t be idly speculating about the end of a presidency barely a month after the inauguration. Certainly, in parts of the country that voted overwhelmingly for Trump, the sense is he’s just getting started.

But the pervasive view in the capital is that President Trump at this point is like a guy behind the wheel who hasn’t slept in a week, surrounded by a small mountain of empty Red Bull cans as he weaves his way across four lanes at night, squinting to read the signs and ignoring the angry blasts of horns.

Sure, it’s a straight drive home on a sparsely populated highway. But at this rate, what are the odds he makes it very far without hurting himself … or someone else?

Some of this is just the lingering shock of the election. A lot of people in Washington are still waking up every morning with a feeling of “this cannot be happening,” and from there it’s a short jump to “this cannot go on for very long.”

But it’s also the sense that Trump himself has skipped right over the opening and middle stages of a normal presidency — honeymoon, legislative push, midterms and reelection — and leaped straight into the self-pitying, paranoid, scandal-shadowed slog of year seven…”

What is Trump hiding?

“DON’T MESS WITH TAXES. President Trump has taken to saying that no one cares about his taxes. And it’s true that he was able to win office while thumbing his nose at the transparency norm of releasing his tax returns while running for the White House. But the drumbeat of interest in them is not going away, and now the White House petition site registered a new milestone, the pro-transparency Sunlight Foundation noted Monday: The petition to “Immediately release Donald Trump’s full tax returns, with all information needed to verify emoluments clause compliance” passed more than 1 million signatures since it was launched on Inauguration Day. White House petitions need to draw more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days to be considered for an official response from the White House. The previous record holder was a 2012 petition to recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group, with more than 387,000 signatures, according to a Pew study of the White House petition site.

That Trump tax release petition is just one of a number of ongoing efforts to create public — and legal — pressure on the president to release his tax returns. “Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have proposed bills to prevent access to the presidential ballot without disclosing federal tax returns,” the AP reported Sunday. These measures are unlikely to succeed in most states where they have been proposed even if they make it through state legislatures, because their Republican governors — such as New Jersey’s Chris Christie — are almost certain not to sign them into law. Only five of the 16 states have Democratic governors. But even if only California and New York adopted the measures, turning what was a campaign norm into a campaign law, that would have some kind of impact in a world where the president needs solid support in those states to have a chance of winning the popular vote…”

Donald Trump’s supporters have trouble understanding why liberals are shunning them article from Salon. –
http://www.salon.com/2017/02/20/donald-trumps-supporters-have-trouble-understanding-why-liberals-are-shunning-them/

“Trump supporters say they were bullied into supporting a very disliked president.

President Donald Trump’s approval ratings may have reached historic lows in record time, but even as 40 percent of the country wants him impeached, supporters of Trump seem mystified by the fierceness of the opposition he faces — even as individuals on the fence often admit to feeling turned off by that same hostility.

“They’re stonewalling everything that he’s doing because they’re just being babies about it,” Patricia Melani, a 56-year-old New Jersey transplant who attended Trump’s campaign rally in Florida on Saturday, told The Washington Post. “All the loudmouths? They need to let it go. Let it go. Shut their mouths and let the man do what he’s got to do. We all shut our mouths when Obama got in the second time around, okay? So that’s what really needs to be done…”

“A month into Donald Trump’s presidency and his job approval rating keeps breaking records — but probably not in the way the administration would prefer.

According to a Gallup poll over the weekend, Trump’s 40 percent job approval is 21 points below the historic average for elected presidents around mid-February (61 percent). That’s also 11 points below the lowest mid-February numbers for any other president in Gallup’s history.

While across the board Trump’s numbers are historically low, approval ratings have become hotly debated under the new administration. Discrepancies have been popping up across varying polling organizations as some paint a rosier picture than others…”

Trump Campaign Rally fuels Trump’s fantasies in the land of delusion, once again citing non-existent terror attacks – this time in Sweden, during his duplicitous campaign rally, Trump complains about ‘Fake News’ while spreading it, pro-Trump groups fraudulently blaming President Obama for massive anti-Trump protests, Trump’s America like Nazi Germany, Trump’s treasonous actions, death eaters operating in the White House, turns out Trump’s criticisms of President Obama apply to Trump, Trump acting like a douche bag, Trump’s pernicious ‘enemy of the people’ press claims based on 20th century totalitarian play book and more.

Trump Again Attacks Media at Campaign-Style Rally in Florida article from NBC News. –
http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-again-attacks-media-campaign-style-rally-florida-n722891

Trump Campaign Rally fuels Trump’s fantasies in the land of delusion:

“President Donald Trump at a rally in Florida Saturday again ripped the media as “fake news” and renewed pledges on Obamacare and border security in an event that appeared little changed from the rallies he gave on the campaign trail.

“They just don’t want to report the truth,” Trump told the crowd of around 9,000 in Melbourne, calling the media as “part of the problem” and “part of the corrupt system.”

“They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda,” the president said. Trump’s attacks on the media came a day after the president on Twitter called the “fake” news media “the enemy of the American people.”

Despite the fact that the 2016 election has long come and gone, the phenomena of the Trump rally felt as if it had been frozen in time, nearly perfectly preserved since the last time the then-candidate strode to the podium and told thousands of his cheering supporters about the woes of the country and the battles he planned to fight…”

Resisting Trump: The Great American Awakening article from Common Dreams. –
http://www.commondreams.org/views/2017/02/17/resisting-trump-great-american-awakening

“Old wounds break open. Deep, encrusted wrongs are suddenly visible. The streets flow with anger and solidarity. The past and the future meet.

The news is All Trump, All the Time, but what’s really happening is only minimally about Donald Trump, even though his outrageous actions and bizarre alliances are the trigger.

“As the nightmare reality of Donald Trump sinks in, we need to put our resistance in a larger perspective,” Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman wrote recently, describing Trump as “our imperial vulture come home to roost.”

The context in which most Trumpnews is delivered is miniscule: more or less beginning and ending with the man himself — his campaign, his businesses, his appointees, his ego, his endless scandals (“what did he know and when did he know it?”) — which maintains the news at the level of entertainment, and surrounds it with the fantasy context of a United States that used to be an open, fair and peace-loving democracy, respectful of all humanity. In other words, Trump is the problem, and if he goes away, we can get back to what we used to be…”

“President Trump is flailing like a man who fears he’s about to go under, and he hasn’t even been in office a full month. His instinct is to flee to the warmth and comfort of his political base — but he will learn that while presidents can run, they can’t hide.

Trump’s administration faces two acute, interlocking crises: serious questions about his campaign’s contacts with official and unofficial representatives of the Russian government, which U.S. intelligence agencies believe made concerted efforts to help Trump win the election; and appalling levels of dysfunction in the White House that make self-inflicted wounds the rule rather than the exception.

The president’s response has been to rant on Twitter and schedule a campaign-style rally Saturday in Florida — both of which may boost Trump’s morale but will do nothing to make his problems go away…”
