Misadventures of a minority-elect President 77

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 ignorantly claims his first 100 days are ‘just about the most successful’ in U.S. history – despite being oblivious to the obvious, Trump keeps making his daughter look foolish, Trump’s lie about saving U.S. jobs is already imploding, after our illegitimate minority-elect President’s first 100 days it’s fair to say that history will not be kind to him or his duplicitous administration, mistrust of the majority in Trump could prove extremely dangerous in the event of a catastrophe rooted in science – or anything else for that matter, the problem with no legal pretext from our War Criminal-in-Chief justifying his bombings in Syria – as well as Afghanistan, ruminations that Twitter users are starting to tune Trump out, why we shouldn’t laugh at Trump’s 100-day faceplant, Sessions tries to cover Trump’s ass over Flynn as our lackluster leader’s Russia scandal continues to grow, GDP lowest in 3 years as Trump’s economy starts its downward spiral and much more.

The Great Job Exodus Is Upon Us: Trump’s Promise to Save American Labor Is Already a Bust article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/labor/great-job-exodus-upon-us-trumps-promise-save-american-labor-already-bust

“At least 12,000 positions have moved or are in the process of being moved abroad since late January.

One of the many impossible promises Donald Trump made on the campaign trail was that he, and he alone, would be able to stem the tide of American jobs moving overseas. Though it was on its face a lie as unbelievable and untenable as all the other lies, it only further solidified Trump’s “America First” bonafides with his base.

Fast-forward to nearly 100 days into Trump’s presidency, and his casting of himself as a hybrid strongman-miracle worker seems only slightly less absurd than his supporters’ continued belief in this invention. Not only has Trump not been the great job savior he proclaimed himself, but thousands of jobs continue to flow to places like Mexico and China.

One day after he vowed to exit NAFTA, a ThinkProgress analysis found that “since Trump was sworn in on January 20, at least 11,934 American jobs have either been moved abroad or are in the process of leaving the country.” The figure is based on data from the Department of Labor Trade Adjustment Assistance program, but since there’s no agency or organization that keeps exact tabs on the number of jobs leaving America for cheaper environs abroad, “the actual number is almost certainly much higher.”…”

A new stage in the repudiation of international law article from The World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/04/29/warl-a29.html

“The Trump administration’s unprovoked April 7 cruise missile attack on Syria, followed closely by the dropping of the largest non-nuclear weapon in its arsenal on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, signals a new period of breakdown in international law.

Since the first Gulf War of 1990–91, the ever-greater assertion of US militarism by successive presidents—George H. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush, Obama and Trump—has brought humanity to the point where the rules of war adopted after the massive casualties and horrors of the last world war are being nakedly flouted.

The Trump administration has made no attempt whatsoever to provide legal pretexts for its bombardments. As made explicit by the statements of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence, the primary purpose of the Syrian and Afghanistan attacks was to demonstrate that there is no limit to the level of violence that the United States is prepared to unleash, completely unilaterally, in pursuit of the interests of American imperialism.

Blatant aggression

The Pentagon’s attack on Syria clearly defied international law. The UN Charter adopted in 1945, after two world wars, provides for only two justifications for the use of military force: authorisation by the UN Security Council or self-defence after an armed attack has occurred. No Security Council resolutions sanctioned the US attacks, and Washington did not try to claim they were necessary for self-defence…”

“IT’S TOUGH TO imagine any two human beings more different than Barack Obama and Donald Trump.

One’s black. One’s white. One writes books. One doesn’t read books and may not be sure what books are. One grew up on the periphery of the U.S. empire and it made him deeply cosmopolitan. One grew up in New York City and it made him a provincial hick.

One has the self-control of a 1,000-year-old Zen monk. One responds to any stimulus like an amoeba. One’s a slender athlete. One’s a fleshy endomorph with whorls and folds in his face like a Shar Pei.

But their elections have one critical thing in common: They both came out of NOWHERE to become president, with characteristics that previously would have throttled their chances before they delivered their first speech in Iowa…”

If there is any question left that Trump appoints people to destroy the department they lead:

“Here we go again. Pretty much all of Donald Trump’s cabinet appointments are troubling and problematic so it’s hard to know where exactly to start with this one. On Friday, he announced that he will be appointing Charmaine Yoest as the assistant secretary for public affairs for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). She is the former president of the anti-abortion group, Americans United for Life:

Yoest is currently a fellow at American Values, a conservative group that opposes abortion and supports “traditional marriage.” She got her start in politics during the Reagan administration. From there she moved to the ultra-conservative Family Research Council and later served on Mike Huckabee’s 2008 presidential campaign.

While she served as president of Americans United for Life, one of the most well-known anti-abortion groups in the country, Yoest was a prominent leader for the anti-abortion movement. As the New York Times noted in a 2012 profile of Yoest, AUL was responsible for one-third of state legislatures’ anti-abortion bills between 2011 and 2012.

Yoest’s stance on abortion isn’t particularly surprising given that Trump’s cabinet is shaping up to be a veritable smorgasbord of deplorable, out of touch folks who seem hellbent on taking women’s rights back to the era of Mad Men. But her views on science … now those are downright scary…”
