Misadventures of a minority-elect President 58

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:

Trump appears to have learned something after his failed Obamacare repeal attempt, ramping up calls for War with Russia – despite lack of evidence or proof – after Trump’s Syrian false flag, more evidence that the Syrian gas attack was an orchestrated event designed to help our minority-elect President, the Nazi in Trump’s White House isn’t doing him any favors, the trouble with Trump’s White House is Donald Trump, why Trump keeps doing the opposite of what he said he’d do, the Trump administration has no foreign policy doctrine – explaining why there is no rhyme or reason to their actions, our fraudulent minority-elect President – if he lasts in office long enough – will corrupt fill 107 vacant court seats courtesy of GOP obstructionism of President Obama over the past 2 years, another example of why it’s hard to believe they still give Sean Spicer a live microphone, ratcheting up wars across the world in secrecy and much more.

The Syrian Gas Attack Persuasion article from Scott Adams’ Blog (the creator of Dilbert). –
http://blog.dilbert.com/post/159264981001/the-syrian-gas-attack-persuasion

“According to the mainstream media – that has been wrong about almost everything for a solid 18 months in a row – the Syrian government allegedly bombed its own people with a nerve agent.

The reason the Assad government would bomb its own people with a nerve agent right now is obvious. Syrian President Assad – who has been fighting for his life for several years, and is only lately feeling safer – suddenly decided to commit suicide-by-Trump. Because the best way to make that happen is to commit a war crime against your own people in exactly the way that would force President Trump to respond or else suffer humiliation at the hands of the mainstream media.

And how about those pictures coming in about the tragedy. Lots of visual imagery. Dead babies. 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.

* Interesting timing.

* Super-powerful visual persuasion designed for Trump in particular.

* Suspiciously well-documented event for a place with no real press.

* No motive for Assad to use gas to kill a few dozen people at the cost of his entire regime. It wouldn’t be a popular move with Putin either.

* The type of attack no U.S. president can ignore and come away intact.

* A setup that looks suspiciously similar to the false WMD stories that sparked the Iraq war.

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…”

The Trouble With Trump’s White House Is Donald Trump article from the Daily Beast. –
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2017/04/10/the-trouble-with-trump-s-white-house-is-donald-trump.html

“If Bannon is cut loose, the old Washington adage of ‘better to have your enemy inside the tent pissing out’ will come into play.

It took Donald Trump 59 Tomahawk cruise missiles to buy himself one day of kind coverage at the end of another otherwise terrible week. But what the president himself described as an impulsive reaction to heartrending photos of Syrian children gassed by Assad on his watch isn’t a coherent strategy to punish Assad for using chemical weapons.

Even supporters who hoped the strike would show Trump as a he-man leader willing to grasp the saber of state in his tiny hands and rattle it firmly, it failed to paper over the political crisis consuming his White House as his staff and family have become warring factions seeking his favor so that the story has become not about the president’s goals, policies, or accomplishments, but a group of people around him who make the Borgias look like the Brady Bunch.

Trump is faced with terrible options when it comes to rearranging the deck chairs on the SS White House, and those of us who warned you this was inevitable are ordering popcorn. The cancer in the presidency isn’t his staff—though they reflect his shoddy intellect, his shallow impulsiveness, his loose grasp of reality, and Chinese-menu ideology. The problem is Trump himself, and nothing and no one can change that…”

Trump aide admits there actually isn’t a ‘Trump doctrine’ article from VOX. –
http://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2017/4/10/15243810/trump-syria-strike-chemical-weapon-foreign-policy-politico

“One of President Trump’s top aides says it’s hard to publicly explain the administration’s foreign policy for a simple reason: The White House doesn’t appear to actually have a foreign policy.

That’s one of the main takeaways from an eye-opening article in Politico about the White House’s efforts to gain its footing after a rocky first three months in office.

According to the account by Shane Goldmacher, more than 30 Trump administration officials held a meeting last week in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, near the White House, to talk about improving the administration’s public messaging.

Trump communications director Mike Dubke and his deputy, Jessica Ditto, began the meeting by calling for a broader “rebranding” before pivoting to foreign policy. That, per the article, was when things got frisky:…”

Needed: A Democratic Shadow Cabinet article from AlterNet. –

“Leading Democrats could hold Trump accountable for his bizarre positions and offer more attractive alternatives every week.

Donald Trump, precisely because his behavior is so outlandish and unpredictable, has dominated the news coverage. It’s unreality TV, and the media can’t stop covering it.

The benefit is that Trump’s sheer craziness gets a lot of scrutiny. But the downside is that Democratic critics have trouble getting much airtime.

If this were a parliamentary democracy, there would be a leader of the opposition, and a whole “front bench” of opposition spokespeople, issue by issue—a kind of Shadow Cabinet…”
