Misadventures of a minority-elect President 60

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:

White House unfreezes hiring and outlines plan to ‘drain the swamp’ – which is extremely corrupt courtesy of our illegitimate president, more evidence revealing why there needs to be an independent investigation into Trump’s Russia scandal, Trump’s illegal bombings in Syria and Iraq are killing far more children than those killed during the Syrian military’s bombing of an al-Qaeda storage depot filled with noxious chemicals – being promulgated as the Syrian ‘gas attack,’ contradicting Trump’s Syrian gas attack fairy tale, more evidence appearing to show that Washington’s claims of Syrian gas attack were orchestrated false flag designed for regime change in Syria, more on Donald Trump’s war crimes, apparently Trump’s love affair with Stephen Bannon is over, still lying about being surveilled by President Obama, mixing personal business while running the White House, dipshittery in Trump’s land of delusion from our clueless mastermind who knows exactly what he’s not doing, more waffling on campaign promises – this time over China and NATO, an update for Trump voters and lots more.

Yet more reason there has to be an independent investigation into Trump’s Russia scandal.

Deaths from US bombings triple in Syria, Iraq article from the World Socialist Web Site. –

While our media fawns over his Syrian gas attack fairy tale, our illegitimate president is killing far more children and civilians than the Syrian military’s bombing of an al-Qaeda weapons depot that was storing noxious chemicals responsible for killing those children and Trump’s illegal attack on the Syrian Air Force. One major question going unanswered is where did al-Qaeda get noxious chemicals from?

A multi-level analysis of the US cruise missile attack on Syria and its consequences article from The Saker. –
https://thesaker.is/a-multi-level-analysis-of-the-us-cruise-missile-attack-on-syria-and-its-consequences/

A little lengthy but well worth the read:

“The latest US cruise missile attack on the Syrian airbase is an extremely important event in so many ways that it is important to examine it in some detail. I will try to do this today with the hope to be able to shed some light on a rather bizarre attack which will nevertheless have profound consequences. But first, let’s begin by looking at what actually happened.

The pretext:

I don’t think that anybody seriously believes that Assad or anybody else in the Syrian government really ordered a chemical weapons attack on anybody. To believe that it would require you to find the following sequence logical: first, Assad pretty much wins the war against Daesh which is in full retreat. Then, the US declares that overthrowing Assad is not a priority anymore (up to here this is all factual and true). Then, Assad decides to use weapons he does not have. He decides to bomb a location with no military value, but with lots of kids and cameras. Then, when the Russians demand a full investigation, the Americans strike as fast as they can before this idea gets any support. And now the Americans are probing a possible Russian role in this so-called attack. Frankly, if you believe any of that, you should immediately stop reading and go back to watching TV. For the rest of us, there are three options:

1. a classical US-executed false flag

2. a Syrian strike on a location which happened to be storing some kind of gas, possibly chlorine, but most definitely not sarin. This option requires you to believe in coincidences. I don’t. Unless,

3. the US fed bad intelligence to the Syrians and got them to bomb a location where the US knew that toxic gas was stored.

What is evident is that the Syrians did not drop chemical weapons from their aircraft and that no chemical gas was ever stored at the al-Shayrat airbase. There is no footage showing any munitions or containers which would have delivered the toxic gas. As for US and other radar recordings, all they can show is that an aircraft was in the sky, its heading, altitude and speed. There is no way to distinguish a chemical munition or a chemical attack by means of radar…”

Trump won’t let reality stop him from lying about Susan Rice article from Think Progress. –

Still living his fraudulent Obama Wiretapping fairy tale in the land of delusion:

“Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary, Trump still wants you to believe he was a victim of inappropriate surveillance.

On Tuesday evening, CNN reported that both Republican and Democratic sources say the intelligence reports House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) touted in a clumsy attempt to validate President Trump’s accusation that President Obama wiretapped him are nothingburgers.

On March 22, Nunes said that while there was no indication unlawful survaillance of Trump transition officials occurred, the reports in question were concerning to him because U.S. citizens’ identities were revealed, or “unmasked,” in them. Subsequent reports indicated former national security adviser Susan Rice requested the unmasking…”

Every Day is Opposite Day article from Medium. –
https://medium.com/@davepell/every-day-is-opposite-day-cda6287d71e9

“There’s a misconception that Donald Trump reversed course when he ordered a missile attack on the Syrian airbase from which Assad’s chemical attack was launched. In reality, Trump remained on the same course he’s been on since the earliest days of his candidacy.

Yes, he ran as an anti-globalist who repeatedly called for the US to stay out of the Syrian conflict. And yes, just days ago his administration made it quite clear that removing Assad was no longer America’s policy. But these policy positions are not what drives Donald Trump. He answers to a higher calling, and in terms of that calling, his decision to order the attack on the Syrian airbase was entirely consistent.

Trump’s ultimate motivation is to do the opposite of Obama. And he never veers from the course…”

The games and dipshittery in the White House’s land of delusion continues:

“Nearly three months into office, President Donald Trump has dropped much of his unorthodox campaign rhetoric on foreign policy and embraced a much more establishment view that in many ways doesn’t differ much from his Democratic predecessor.

At a news conference on Wednesday, Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping, whose country he had once called an “economic enemy.” He blasted Russian President Vladimir Putin for the first time after he’d long been accused of being too friendly with him. He labeled Syrian President Bashar Assad a “butcher,” a week after ordering a military strike that he once criticized Barack Obama for contemplating.

And he said he was 100 percent behind NATO, the military alliance created in 1949 that he has previously called “obsolete.”…”

“1. He said he wouldn’t bomb Syria. You bought it. Then he bombed Syria.

2. He said he’d build a wall along the border with Mexico. You bought it. Now his secretary of homeland security says “It’s unlikely that we will build a wall.”

3. He said he’d clean the Washington swamp. You bought it. Then he brought into his administration more billionaires, CEOs, and Wall Street moguls than in any administration in history, to make laws that will enrich their businesses.

4. He said he’d repeal Obamacare and replace it with something “wonderful.” You bought it. Then he didn’t…”
