The GOP dubiously trying to clear their fraudulent lying leader begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president*, why Trump and the miscreants still standing with him should be very worried about Mueller’s investigations, Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam is proving more malignant than previously thought, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s latest voter suppression plan smells dictatorial, yet more evidence that Trump lied about draining the swamp, how our lackluster lame duck president* is trying to make his failed presidency even worse, still deceptively trying to claim that he actually won the popular vote when in reality he lost bigly, our fraudulent Orange turd ball Loser-in-Chief is acting surprised and upset because his appointees and administration are actually as corrupt and stupid as he is, Trump’s despotic delusions of grandeur are becoming glaringly evident, our Ignoramus-in-Chief is now bragging about lying repeatedly, how Trump has made it egregiously evident that he is nothing but a fraudulent con man that does nothing but lie all the time plus a lot more.

As I’ve stated a few time previously, there may not be much evidence of Trump’s personal collusion with Russia since his campaign handled most of it, but the many Money Laundering and Obstructions of Justice charges will bury his sorry ass.

Budget Deficit Will Go Up 31% Thanks To Trump Tax Cuts For Billionaires article from PoliticusUSA. –
https://www.politicususa.com/2018/03/13/budget-deficit-up-31-thanks-to-trump-tax-cuts-for-billionaires.html

Yet more evidence that Trump’s tax reform scam was nothing but a major fraud that will help bankrupt this country:

“It’s now official: the Trump-Ryan-McConnell tax cut plan for billionaires is bankrupting our country.

The United States Treasury Department said Monday that the federal budget deficit in February was significantly higher than a year ago, as is the budget deficit for the first five months of this budget year. According to the Treasury Department this year’s United States federal deficit will hit $873 billion, up a dangerous 31.3 percent from last year’s shortfall of $665.8 billion.

These numbers are based on President Donald Trump’s new budget projections which say that over the next decade, U.S. federal deficits will be approximately $7 trillion. When added to the existing federal debt of over $20 trillion, this level of projected deficit is not good news for America.

Obama had been working on decreasing the federal deficit but under Trump the government has reversed course and decided to let America’s debt soar while cutting taxes on the super-rich and big multi-national corporations. The deficit picture is of great concern now because of the $1.5 trillion in tax cuts in the tax bill that was passed in December…”

Donald Trump Just Cited an Anti-Immigrant Hate Group That Has Promoted Holocaust-Deniers article from Think Progress. –
https://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/donald-trump-just-cited-anti-immigrant-hate-group-has-promoted-holocaust-deniers

Still lying about immigrants and his border wall by citing hate groups to justify it:

“Donald Trump, on his way to California to visit his baby wall prototypes, cited an anti-immigrant hate group that has promoted pieces authored by anti-Semites and Holocaust deniers:

Trump tweeted “According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the $18 billion wall will pay for itself by curbing the importation of crime, drugs and illegal immigrants who tend to go on the federal dole…” https://twitter.com/foxnews/status/973183304517251079 …”

As the Southern Poverty Law Center reports, CIS “has gone on to become the go-to think tank for the anti-immigrant movement with its reports and staffers often cited by media and anti-immigrant politicians.” But make no mistake, this is a hate group:

The Center for Immigration Studies, like the rest of the organized anti-immigrant movement we see in America today, was founded by John Tanton, a Michigan ophthalmologist turned population control alarmist whose racist beliefs stirred him to create a network of organizations with a simple agenda: heavily restricting the immigration levels to the United States in order to maintain a white majority. As Tanton himself wrote in 1993, “I’ve come to the point of view that for European-American society and culture to persist requires a European-American majority, and a clear one at that.”…”

Kris Kobach’s Expert Won’t Support Claim That Trump Really Won The Popular Vote article from The Huffington Post. –
https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/kris-kobach-lawsuit-noncitizen-voters_us_5aa82f40e4b0f7a689cd13a2

Primarily because he can’t since Trump lost the popular vote bigly:

“One of the academics that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) picked to back up his claims of widespread voter fraud said in sworn testimony on Tuesday that he could not support Kobach’s claim that illegal votes may have swung the popular vote during the 2016 presidential election.

That statement was just the latest in a series of remarks in various federal courts that undermine Kobach’s argument that noncitizen voter registration is a substantial problem in the U.S. and that requiring people to prove their citizenship when they register to vote isn’t really a burden.

Kobach is currently being sued in the U.S. district court in Kansas City, Kansas, by a group of state residents over a state law mandating that would-be voters prove their citizenship when they register. While the American Civil Liberties Union represents the residents, Kobach is leading his own defense.

Jesse Richman, a political scientist at Old Dominion University, had performed an expert analysis for Kobach that suggested that as many as 18,000 noncitizens could be on the voter rolls in Kansas ? a number the ACLU disputes. Richman is also the author of a study from which Kobach has extrapolated that 3 to 5 million people nationwide could have voted illegally in the 2016 election. President Donald Trump, who lost the popular vote by about 2.9 million votes to Hillary Clinton, has said he only lost it because of all those allegedly illegal votes…”

Trump’s new economic adviser is really bad at economics. Here are the receipts. article from Think Progress. –
https://thinkprogress.org/larry-kudlow-bad-economic-predictions-f02ebf47c918/

Which shouldn’t surprise anyone since all of Trump’s appointees are corrupt and dumber than dirt:

“Larry Kudlow is President Donald Trump’s choice to replace Gary Cohn as director of the National Economic Council (NEC). Cohn spent over 25 years at Goldman Sachs, and was president and COO for ten years before he joined the Trump administration. Past NEC directors have had law degrees from Yale or Harvard or Cornell, MBAs from Harvard or Wharton (not a bachelor’s with an economics major like the president), a Ph. D in economics from Harvard or MIT, decades of business experience, or taught at the London School of Economics,

Kudlow has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Rochester and did not complete a master’s degree in economics at Princeton. He has worked at a junior level at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and also in the Reagan Office of Management and Budget. He worked at Bear Stearns from 1987 to 1994, at which point he was fired due to cocaine abuse. After working for Arthur Laffer’s firm, he got into journalism, most notably hosting a business show on CNBC.

He also has a penchant for making wildly incorrect predictions and assurances about the economy. Here are a few:

Kudlow said invading Iraq in 2002 as a “small war” would boost the economy…”

Trump Is Mad that His Cabinet Is as Dumb and Corrupt as He Is article from Splinter News. –
https://splinternews.com/trump-is-mad-that-his-cabinet-is-as-dumb-and-corrupt-as-1823762556

Sad! Our Loser-in-Chief has known all along how corrupt his appointees and his administration are but he can’t actually be surprised that they’re as stupid as he is:

“Donald Trump is reportedly pissed off about the very bad and corrupt group of people he’s assembled as his Cabinet, which he once called the “finest group of people ever assembled as a Cabinet.”

Tuesday’s firing of Exxon Mobil gremlin turned Secretary of State Rex Tillerson looks like it might only be the beginning. According to the Associated Press, Trump’s confidence in his Cabinet has faded and he is telling confidants that he wants to “get rid of the dead weight.” (It feels like only yesterday that Trump forced all his Cabinet members to go around and praise him one by one.)

Unfortunately for Trump, his cabinet is 100% dead weight.

There’s Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson, who has been under fire for spending $31,000 in public money on a furniture set for his HUD office. Carson’s spokesperson previously claimed that the secretary was not involved in the purchase of the set, but FOIAed emails released on Wednesday morning show that Carson and his wife picked out the furniture themselves…”

Seven days in March: The Trump administration and the breakdown of American democracy article from The World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2018/03/15/pers-m15.html

More on the despotic delusions of grandeur emanating from Trump as he continues taking America in the wrong direction:

“The Trump administration has taken a series of actions this week that expose the authoritarian character of the government and the breakdown of democratic forms of rule in the United States.

On Tuesday, Trump summarily fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, announcing that he would be replaced by close Trump supporter and current CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Tillerson reportedly learned of the change at the same time as the media, when it was announced in a 140-character tweet.

The form of the change in personnel at the highest level of the state is significant. Trump treats his cabinet, and expects them to act, as an assemblage of courtiers, loyal only to him. The Secretary of State is the senior cabinet post, which historically carries with it the greatest prestige, and the occupant of this position is the fourth person in the legal line of succession to the presidency.

Trump chooses ciphers, humiliates them publicly, and then throws them out as if they were pieces of garbage. He thereby demonstrates his contempt not only for individuals, but also the office they occupy…”

White House wheel of fortune: Inside the Trump circus of corruption article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2018/03/15/white-house-wheel-of-fortune-inside-the-trump-circus-of-corruption/

Trump has effortlessly cemented his spot in history as America’s most corrupt-ever president*:

“After economic adviser Gary Cohn’s resignation in the wake of President Trump’s impulsive tariff announcement and the abrupt dismissal of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson this week, it’s assumed that Trump’s apparent decision to throw caution to the wind and follow his gut will lead to more firings, perhaps immediately. It’s not as if he’s being coy about it. Trump keeps saying that he’s “almost” got the administration he wants every time the press queries him about the massive turnover.

This has all of Washington on a sort of death watch, wondering whether the rumors that national security adviser H.R. McMaster are out are true. Then there’s the greatest thorn in Trump’s side, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin, who is in a pitched battle with his own staff.

Axios’ Jonathan Swan quoted a White House staffer summing up the atmosphere these days:

This is the most toxic working environment on the planet. Usually tough times bring people together. But right now this atmosphere is ripping people apart. There’s no leadership, no trust, no direction and this point there’s very little hope. Would you want to go to work every day not knowing whether your future career was going to be destroyed without explanation?…”
