Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:
Much of the U.S. Congress and our pusillanimous corporate media – acting as the Ministry of Propaganda – fawning over Trump’s illegal Syrian airstrike instead of holding him accountable, more Americans suffering from insomnia courtesy of our illegitimate minority-elect President, Trump’s Syrian delusions, jingoistic fawning over Syria with the utter lack of skeptical inquiry – sounds all to familiar (think Iraq’ alleged WMD’s), once again Trump’s ignorant hypocrisy on full display, first election in the Trump era could signal downward spiral for GOP, report suggests Ivanka Trump may have convinced her father to illegally bomb Syria, Trump’s hypocrisy on Syrian refugees, TV spends too much time on Trump’s idiocracy, many of his supporters are waking up to the reality of their ignorance, Syrian chemical attack appearing more like an orchestrated incident for Trump to use for personal gain and as a distraction, Trump’s illegal Syrian airstrike killed more civilians than Syrian military, more evidence that Trump’s dubious claims of voter fraud are based on farcical delusions, Trump endorsements bad for business, shifting to the center in an attempt to reset his failing presidency, U.S. Military-Industrial Complex to make more than $70 million from U.S. taxpayers to replace missiles fired at Syria, still desperately trying to justify his fraudulent Obama wiretapping fairy tale, Trump’s presidency is already a joke – but no laughing matter and more.

“All it took for President Donald Trump to win widespread political acclaim was to bomb another nation. The lust for war — “leadership,” in more popular parlance — unites Republican and Democratic leaders.
If the president is serious about enforcing humanitarian principles, his next target will be Saudi Arabia, which is responsible for thousands of civilian deaths in Yemen. True, Washington is complicit and it would be embarrassing for the U.S. Air Force to bomb American military facilities as well.
Of course, U.S. foreign policy rarely has been about principle. Ironically, the president reinforced the truth of his criticisms of the political establishment by joining it. After promising not to repeat the previous administration’s mistakes in Iraq and Libya, he has launched America into the middle of a murderous, multi-sided civil war. He’s really no different than leading Rs and Ds…”

Media – and politicians – fawning over Trump’s illegal Syria airstrikes with no evidence…as was done in the lead up to the Bush cabal’s fraudulent War on Terror and Iraq’s non-existent weapons of mass destruction. Repeating propaganda and lies with no evidence or verification has devastated this country…the time for holding our media, and corrupt politicians accountable is rapidly approaching.

In Georgia, a Democrat’s ‘Make Trump Furious’ campaign rattles Republicans article from Yahoo! News. –
“SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (Reuters) – After the crushing electoral losses that swept Donald Trump into the White House and sealed Republican control of the U.S. Congress, the Democrats’ road to recovery winds through the leafy, well-heeled suburbs of north Atlanta.
Here, Democrats are threatening a stunning special election upset that could signal how well the party can turn Trump’s low approval ratings into political gains. And they appear to have an ally in the April 18 vote: Trump himself.
In the first congressional election of the Trump era, a wave of grassroots anti-Trump fervor has positioned Democrat Jon Ossoff, a 30-year-old political newcomer, to possibly capture a House of Representatives seat held by Republicans for decades, one of 24 seats Democrats need nationwide to reclaim the House.
“The grassroots intensity here is electric, and it’s because folks are concerned that what is happening in Washington doesn’t represent our values,” Ossoff said in an interview. “This is a chance for this community to stand up and make a statement about what we believe.”…”

Many of our minority-elect President’s supporters are waking up to the reality of their ignorance:
“Dear President Trump,
Respectfully, what the fuck are you doing? TheShadowBrokers voted for you. TheShadowBrokers supports you. TheShadowBrokers is losing faith in you. Mr. Trump helping theshadowbrokers, helping you. Is appearing you are abandoning “your base”, “the movement”, and the peoples who getting you elected.
#1 — Goldman Sach (TheGlobalists) and Military Industrial Intelligence Complex (MIIC) cabinet
#2 — Backtracked on Obamacare
#3 — Attacked the Freedom Causcus (TheMovement)
#4 — Removed Bannon from the NSC

The Syrian WMD Show Was Trump’s Production article from Information Clearing House. –
It’s appearing more likely that the Syrian gas incident was orchestrated, possibly as a distraction for personal gain from our War Criminal-in-chief’s administration.
“The “chemical attack” at Khan Sheikoun was fake and a show, though some people in there were probably real victims of war. This video for example, of doctors and patients in emergence rooms was theater, taken over a longer time period. The main presenter was a well-known Takfiri but with links to British services. The whole show was perfected, by specialists one would think, to fit for U.S. screens. The male “victims” were clean shaven, despite living in al-Qaeda land. They even had two blond “Syrian” kids in there (vid) to convince the racists that “revenge” was needed.
Dilbert creator Scott Adams, one of the few who understood Trump’s persuasion style and predicted his win, remarks:
It is almost as if someone designed this “tragedy” to be camera-ready for President Trump’s consumption. It pushed every one of his buttons. Hard. And right when things in Syria were heading in a positive direction.
I’m going to call bullshit on the gas attack. It’s too “on-the-nose,” as Hollywood script-writers sometimes say, meaning a little too perfect to be natural. This has the look of a manufactured event.
So how does a Master Persuader respond to a fake war crime?
He does it with a fake response, if he’s smart.
The response by the U.S. was not completely fake but as small as it could be. The base was warned and had been evacuated. All movable and valuable stuff had been taken away. The attack was even smaller than planned. Russia says only 23 out of 59 cruise missiles hit the base. The others were shot down by air defense or diverted by Electronic Counter Measures. The Pentagon insists that all 59 hit. But the pictures and video from the base only show damage to 11 aircraft shelters. Additionally one radar, one missile launcher and a fuel depot were hit. That effect is too small for 59 impacts. The base was in use again 12 hours after the strike. The attack on it was not really serious…”

Donald Trump’s Biggest Problem article from The National Interest. –
“The president has lost his base, or is in grave danger of doing so.”
Before he gets more deeply involved in Syria’s civil war, Donald Trump will have to win one at home. The Republican Party was already divided after failing to repeal Obamacare. Now the conflict has spread to the White House, where Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner are at daggers drawn. Even Trump’s most loyal grassroots and media supporters are in an uproar over the president’s evolving foreign policy, which has taken a turn toward the establishment as his domestic agenda sinks into the swamp he promised to drain.
How much damage has the Syrian attack done to Trump? He’s lost Ann Coulter, who took to Twitter to vent her outrage and retweet lesser-known supporters who felt equally betrayed. He’s lost Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com and the sizable blocs of Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan activists who had flocked to Trump’s “America First” banner. He’s even lost InfoWars, whose readers are overwhelmingly against the attacks, to judge from the site’s self-polling and user comments. Commenters at Breitbart.com are not less outraged over Trump’s move…”
