“WASHINGTON (AP) — Residents of a posh Washington neighborhood say Ivanka Trump and her family don’t make for very good neighbors, taking up much of the parking on an already crowded street and leaving trash bags at the curb for days. A big part of the complaint: a huge security presence, with even a trip to the playground requiring three vans.

Neighbors of Trump, her husband Jared Kushner and their three children have groused that sidewalks have been closed, public parking overrun and that the family and their staff haven’t learned the trash pickup schedule outside their $5.5-million home.

“It has been a three-ring circus from the day that they’ve moved in,” Marietta Robinson, who lives across the street, told the Associated Press.

The house in the Kalorama neighborhood was bought in December by a company with ties to a Chilean billionaire. The company is renting it to Kushner and Trump, who moved in just after the inauguration of her father, President Donald Trump. Both work in the White House as advisers to the president…”

Steve Bannon Is Cleaning House. He Posted A ‘S*it List’ In WH War Room; And Paul Ryan Is Toast article from the Daily Kos. –

We’ll see if colluding with Fox ‘News,’ one of Trump’s favorite propaganda pushing websites works or not, though Ryan and his flimflam chicanery needed to go long ago:

“The GOP has a united Republican government — and they still can’t govern. That is the takeaway from yesterday’s stunning loss, where Republicans decided to withdraw their repeal bill rather than face the humiliation of public defeat on live television. Whose political career is going to the guillotine for this debacle? Who has Steve Bannon declared would be gone by Spring? If you said Paul Ryan, you’re right. The implosion of Paul Ryan’s career has been building for quite some time. The Speaker of the House is a con artist and his attempt to foist “ObamaCare 0.5″ i.e. a half baked version of the original, off on the public as a new and improved product, failed spectacularly and a price will be paid. New York Times columnist Paul Krugman has been following Paul Ryan for a number of years and Krugman just put another nail in Paul Ryan’s coffin.

Many people are horrified, and rightly so, by what passes for leadership in today’s Washington. And it’s important to keep the horror of our political situation up front, to keep highlighting the lies, the cruelty, the bad judgment. We must never normalize the state we’re in.

At the same time, however, we should be asking ourselves how the people running our government came to wield such power. How, in particular, did a man whose fraudulence, lack of concern for those he claims to care about and lack of policy coherence should have been obvious to everyone nonetheless manage to win over so many gullible souls?…”

The Hour of the Attorneys General article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/hour-attorneys-general

With Trump’s GOP brown shirts – and his corrupt ‘Justice Department’ – protecting his corrupt actions, there is a new front emerging to contain our Liar-in-Chief’s presidency:

“State Democratic AGs have assumed new importance in the effort to contain the Trump presidency.

In a Tuesday night in early February, not three weeks after Donald Trump’s inauguration, three federal judges in San Francisco heard arguments about whether to halt his first major policy undertaking. Trump had issued an executive order banning hundreds of thousands of travelers from entering the country, including citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries, and all refugees. As many as 60,000 individuals had their visas revoked. Almost immediately, a pair of Democratic attorneys general, Washington state’s Bob Ferguson and Minnesota’s Lori Swanson, brought suit against Trump’s executive order, arguing it violated the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of equal protection under the law as well as the First Amendment’s Establishment Clause, harmed all Washington and Minnesota businesses and communities, and was “undermining [their] sovereign interest” as welcoming destinations for immigrants and refugees.

More than 100,000 people from across the nation sat glued to a YouTube livestream of the legal hearing. The high-profile courtroom drama unfolded amid massive protests against Trump in streets and airports. Besides Democratic attorneys general, civil rights groups and private lawyers filed dozens of other lawsuits in federal courts across the country. A few days later, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit blocked Trump’s executive order, ruling that it failed to advance U.S. national security. So went the opening round in what will surely be a continuing legal struggle over Trump’s powers…”

The Week When Trump’s Wiretap Accusation Died article from Fortune on Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/week-trumps-wiretap-accusation-died-154753274.html

“President Donald Trump’s accusation that his predecessor ordered snooping of his communications has fallen apart, slapped down by the FBI chief and again by the Republican leading the House intelligence committee, a Trump ally. The president gave up on arguing that Barack Obama tapped his phones, and he doesn’t give up on anything easily.

A look at how that sensational charge and a variety of other statements by the president – on the failed “Obamacare” replacement bill, Russia, immigration and more – met reality checks over the past week:

THE WIRETAP THAT WASN’T

Trump now says he never meant that Obama literally had his phone tapped. “When I said wiretapping, it was in quotes,” he told Time magazine Wednesday.” It is just a good description. But wiretapping was in quotes. What I’m talking about is surveillance.”…”
