Misadventures of a minority-elect President 130

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:

Our misadventures begin today with America’s image plunging to new lows under our illegitimate, minority-elect President, Trump’s last false claims – devoid of evidence as usual – of a Syrian gas attack take center stage as the Trump cabal appears to be preparing yet another false flag Syrian chemical weapons attack as a prelude for committing more war crimes and ignorant attempts at regime change, quoting Trump as an anonymous source explains why the National Enquirer is joining his ministry of propaganda to spread his lies, our Blackmailer-in-Chief is threatening to force poor people into a lose-lose situation if his fraudulent ‘healthcare’ tax giveaway isn’t passed, our national embarrassment’s White House has no credibility – nationally or internationally, the growing list of arguments to use in case you ever get into a squabble with a Trump voter, in a little over 5 months Trump has told more than 337 lies and a lot more.

White House warns Assad may be preparing chemical weapons attack article from The New York Post. –
http://nypost.com/2017/06/26/white-house-warns-assad-may-be-preparing-chemical-weapons-attack/

Here we go again: Prepare for another false flag Syrian chemical gas attack as justification for committing more war crimes and attempts to overthrow the regime there continue:

“The White House accused the Syrian government Monday of preparing for another chemical attack against their own people — and threatened a “heavy price” if they went through with an atrocity.

A statement from the office of the press secretary said that the purported attack could lead to the “mass murder of civilians” and warned Syrian president Bashar al Assad he would be consequences.

“The United States had identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime,” the statement read. “The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April 4, 2017.”

The White House added that the main goal of US forces in the region are to eliminate ISIS from their Syrian strongholds…”

‘Clear Victory’ for President Trump on Muslim Ban 2.0? Hardly. article from The ACLU. –
https://www.aclu.org/blog/speak-freely/clear-victory-president-trump-muslim-ban-20-hardly

On our dimwitted dip shit’s false claims of a ‘victory’ on his Muslim Ban which will be heard by the US Supreme Court this fall:

“After the Supreme Court ruled today that it would hear arguments on the Muslim ban that a number of lower courts have ruled against, the president claimed “clear victory.”

Hardly.

In fact, the court handed the government a sweeping, but not complete, defeat. It rejected the government’s blanket ban and recognized what all the lower courts in two separate cases saw: The ban would be devastating to families, organizations, and communities across the United States. The court also allowed the government to implement only a narrow version of the ban, explaining that anyone with a “bona fide relationship” to people or organizations in the United States cannot be barred. To view that decision as “clear victory” is wishful thinking.

As a refresher, the court was considering two cases challenging the revised Muslim ban, which had been narrowed after it was swiftly struck down in court: IRAP v. Trump and Hawaii v. Trump. In both cases, federal district courts concluded that the order was an unconstitutional attempt to implement the Muslim ban President Trump had repeatedly promised on the campaign trail, and both courts issued orders blocking key provisions of the ban. Those orders were upheld by two courts of appeals. In a case argued by the ACLU, the Fourth Circuit in Virginia rejected the ban on people from six overwhelmingly Muslim countries, concluding the president’s order “drips with religious intolerance, animus, and discrimination.” The Ninth Circuit blocked that same provision and two others barring refugees, explaining that the president’s order violated federal statutes.

The government wanted to allow the ban to go into effect immediately and completely, arguing that the appellate decisions were wrong. At most, the government contended, the lower court orders halting the ban should only apply to two individuals (one plaintiff in IRAP and one in Hawaii)…”

Trump’s First Guantanamo Trial Is FUBAR From Day 1 article from The Daily Beast. –
http://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-launches-new-military-trial-for-gitmo-terrorist-even-though-it-doesnt-work

A look at dysfunctional Military justice under an insanely inept Trump administration:

“An al Qaeda leader, sitting in the Guantanamo Bay detention center for more than a decade, is suddenly being charged with crimes—in a court that everyone says is beyond flawed.

Even Trump administration officials admit that trying terrorists in military courts “doesn’t work.” That’s not stopping the Trump administration from doing it anyway. It’s charging an Indonesian terrorist with war crimes, even as officials concede that the new case is likely to become the latest procedural disaster facing U.S. military commissions.

Riduan Isamuddin, known as Hambali, has been in U.S. custody since 2003, when the CIA captured him, took him to an undisclosed black site prison and tortured him. Since 2006, Hambali, the former al Qaeda leader in Southeast Asia, has been held at Guantanamo Bay, alongside other black site veterans whose torture has turned their military prosecutions into a morass of legal challenges.

“The decision to charge Hambali after six years of unsuccessful prosecutions in other military commissions cases suggests the U.S. has not learned from its mistakes in [pursuing] military commissions in the first place,” said James Connell, an attorney for 9/11 defendant Ammar al-Baluchi…”

Hersh’s New Syria Revelations Buried From View article from Counter Punch. –
https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/06/27/hershs-new-syria-revelations-buried-from-view/

When anyone counters Washington’s lies with facts and truth, our corporate media has a tendency to bury it, especially when it involves crimes against humanity committed by the US:

“Veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh, the man who exposed the Mai Lai massacre during the Vietnam War and the US military’s abuses of Iraqi prisoners at Abu Ghraib in 2004, is probably the most influential journalist of the modern era, with the possible exception of Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the pair who exposed Watergate.

For decades, Hersh has drawn on his extensive contacts within the US security establishment to bring us the story behind the official story, to disclose facts that have often proved deeply discomfiting to those in power and exploded the self-serving, fairy-tale narratives the public were expected to passively accept as news. His stature among journalists was such that, in a sea of corporate media misinformation, he enjoyed a small island of freedom at the elite, but influential, outlet of the New Yorker.

Paradoxically, over the past decade, as social media has created a more democratic platform for information dissemination, the corporate media has grown ever more fearful of a truly independent figure like Hersh. The potential reach of his stories could now be enormously magnified by social media. As a result, he has been increasingly marginalised and his work denigrated. By denying him the credibility of a “respectable” mainstream platform, he can be dismissed for the first time in his career as a crank and charlatan. A purveyor of fake news.

Nonetheless, despite struggling to find an outlet for his recent work, he has continued to scrutinise western foreign policy, this time in relation to Syria. The official western narrative has painted a picture of a psychotic Syrian president, Bashar Assad, who is assumed to be so irrational and self-destructive he intermittently uses chemical weapons against his own people. He does so, not only for no obvious purpose but at moments when such attacks are likely to do his regime untold damage. Notably, two sarin gas attacks have supposedly occurred when Assad was making strong diplomatic or military headway, and when the Islamic extremists of Al-Qaeda and ISIS – his chief opponents – were on the back foot and in desperate need of outside intervention…”

The US at War Since 9/11: Reality or Reality TV? article from Truthout. –
http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41073-the-us-at-war-since-9-11-reality-or-reality-tv

On the fraudulent ‘Global War on Terror’ that never ceases – it’s perpetuated by the U.S. and it’s terrorist allies (Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, etc.):

“The headlines arrive in my inbox day after day: “US-led airstrikes in Syria killed hundreds of civilians, UN panel says.” “Pentagon wants to declare more parts of world as temporary battlefields.” “The US was supposed to leave Afghanistan by 2017. Now it might take decades.” There are so many wars and rumors of war involving our country these days that it starts to feel a little unreal, even for the most devoted of news watchers. And for many Americans, it’s long been that way. For them, the meaning of war is closer to reality TV than it is to reality.

On a June day, you could, for instance, open The New York Times and read that “airstrikes by the American-led coalition against Islamic State targets have killed hundreds of civilians around Raqqa, the militant group’s last Syrian stronghold, and left 160,000 people displaced.” Or you could come across statistics two orders of magnitude larger in learning from a variety of sources that famine is stalking 17 million people in Yemen. That is the predictable result of a Saudi Arabian proxy war against Iran, a campaign supported by the US with weaponry and logistical assistance, in which, according to Human Rights Watch, the US may well be complicit in torture. You could contemplate the fact that in Iraq, a country the United States destabilized with its 2003 invasion and occupation, there are still at least three million internally displaced people, according to the UN High Commission for Refugees; or that more than 411,000 Iraqis remain displaced from their homes in Mosul alone since the Iraqi army launched a US-backed offensive to drive ISIS out of that city last October.

Yes, it’s possible to click on those links or to catch so many other Internet or TV news reports about how such American or American-backed wars are damaging infrastructure, destroying entire health care systems, uprooting millions, and putting at risk the education of whole generations thousands of miles away. But none of it is real for most of us in this country.

How could it be real? Most of us no longer have any idea what war is like for the people who live through it. No major war has been fought on US territory since the Civil War ended in 1865, and the last people who remembered that terrible time died decades before the turn of this century. There is no one around to give us a taste of that reality — except of course for the refugees that the Trump administration is now doing its best to keep out…”

White House Uses CNN Resignations To Cast Doubt On All Reports On Russia And Trump article from The Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/white-house-briefing-conservative-outlets_us_5952b212e4b0da2c731f35f3

The Trump Cabal spends so much time deflecting facts while trying to justify their alternate reality:

“Conservative outlets gave the deputy press secretary an opportunity to rail against the “fake news” media.

Prompted by questions from two conservative media outlets, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders spent much of Tuesday’s press briefing lambasting the media and accusing news outlets of pushing “fake news” about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election.

The questions centered around the resignation of three CNN staffers after the outlet published and then retracted a story claiming that Anthony Scaramucci, a member of President Donald Trump’s transition team, had met with a Russian investor. CNN has apologized to Scaramucci, who tweeted that he accepted the apology.

During Tuesday’s briefing, Sanders called on Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering, who asked about the CNN story and why the network’s response wasn’t “good enough” for the president, who had tweeted about the controversy earlier in the day…”
