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:
We begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* with his despotic delusions of having a state-run TV network to show how great he is – except for the obvious fact that he isn’t, running the country the same way he runs his failed fraudulent businesses isn’t working out well for Donnie, Manafort isn’t the target that Mueller’s after – Trump is, evidence implicating the Donald is mounting and he’s freaking out because he knows he’s going down, Trump’s pernicious melt downs happening more frequently are quite revealing – albeit not in a good way for him, Trump’s endless corruption and ineptitude have been on full display for decades to anyone that has been paying attention, on the shit storm that is heading Trump’s way that is going to take him and his equally corrupt family down in flames, how Trump’s former attorney could end up putting the final nails in Trump coffin and so much more.

Except for the glaringly obvious fact that he’s not great, nor will he ever be, what could possibly go wrong?…
Trump Melts Down After Realizing Mueller Can Disprove His Lies article from PoliticusUSA. –
Trump’s lies are easy to disprove, so the fact that it bothers him that Mueller can back it up is rather comical:
The Phony Witch Hunt continues, but Mueller and his gang of Angry Dems are only looking at one side, not the other. Wait until it comes out how horribly & viciously they are treating people, ruining lives for them refusing to lie. Mueller is a conflicted prosecutor gone rogue….

Trump’s latest tantrum suggests Mueller is making him nervous article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Donnie is in deep shit and he knows it now that his failed presidency is unraveling at a record pace:
“In a mini-tantrum yesterday, Donald Trump raised the prospect of Special Counsel Robert Mueller issuing a final report and wondered about its content. “Will he be putting in statements from hundreds of people closely involved with my campaign who never met, saw or spoke to a Russian during this period?” the president asked.
I’ll confess, I find questions like these oddly entertaining. Trump’s argument, in effect, is that some top members of his political operation held private communications with a foreign adversary during its attack on our election – but not everyone on his team did so.
It’s a framework with a rich rhetorical history. At the height of the war in Iraq, the Bush administration tried to focus on the positives, effectively arguing, “What about the areas in Iraq that aren’t on fire?”
A few years later, during Herman Cain’s presidential campaign, the Republican was confronted with allegations of sexual harassment. Cain responded at the time by effectively asking, “What about the women I knew who haven’t accused me of misconduct?” About a year ago, during Roy Moore’s Senate candidacy in Alabama, his supporters effectively argued, “What about the women in Alabama whom Moore didn’t target when they were teenagers?”…”

GM’s Plant Closures Confirm the President is a Liar and a Fool article from The Nation. –
Trump has lied from day one and never gave a shit about the morons that voted for him:
“Donald Trump campaigned for president on a promise to Michigan auto workers that “If I’m elected, you won’t lose one plant, you’ll have plants coming into this country, you’re going to have jobs again, you won’t lose one plant, I promise you that.”
Barely two years later, on the Monday after Thanksgiving, General Motors announced that it was closing major auto plants in Michigan, as well as Ohio and Maryland. Thousands of jobs are being cut, and the future for many of the remaining plants suddenly seems very insecure.
Trump, the candidate who claimed in 2016 that his Democratic rival “hasn’t got a clue” about how to maintain American manufacturing, is now exposed as the president who really hasn’t got a clue about keeping plants open and keeping workers on the job.
The heartbreaking reality is that Trump was never going to be a good president for the American workers who build cars and other vehicles in the nation’s historic factory towns. A reality-TV star with almost no understanding of the complex and demanding circumstance of domestic manufacturing in an age of globalization and automation, Trump peddled a combination of bumper-sticker slogans and past-their-expiration-date policy proposals on the 2016 campaign trail. That was enough to win narrow victories in a number of manufacturing states—Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Wisconsin—that were hurting after years of bipartisan neglect. It is true that many voters who felt they had been let down by both parties took a chance on Trump. But Trump assumed the presidency without an agenda, and he embraced the schemes of a Congress led by two of the worst players in Washington on manufacturing issues: House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell…”

Mueller isn’t after Manafort; he’s after Trump article from Salon. –
If Trump is stupid enough to pardon Manafort – and he obviously is – it will be considered an obstruction of justice:
“Now that Paul Manafort had re-emerged among us, it might be useful to remind ourselves who he is. Currently occupying a solitary cell in a Virginia jail, he is the blow-dried preening lobbyist and political consultant who lavished $1,369,655 on his wardrobe in ill-gotten funds laundered from phony front companies on the island of Cyprus. For nearly 40 years, he ran successful con jobs across the globe. His lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., which he ran along with fellow Republicans Charlie Black and Roger Stone, represented dictatorships all over the world, according to a profile published by The Atlantic last March. “The firm’s client base grew to include dictatorial governments in Nigeria, Kenya, Zaire, Equatorial Guinea, Saudi Arabia, and Somalia, among others,” The Atlantic reported.
Manafort, Black and Stone also took on the Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos, and then rehabilitated the murderous Angolan guerrilla fighter Jonas Savimbi, whose civil war against the government in that country cost hundreds of thousands of lives and “committed atrocities against children and conscripted women into sexual slavery,” according to The Atlantic.
Manafort advised the political campaigns of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Bob Dole, and while he was at it, got involved with an arms dealer from Lebanon named Abdul Rahman Al Assir, who at the time was the brother-in-law of arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, the Saudi Arabian billionaire involved in the Reagan administration arms-for-hostages scheme that became the Iran-Contra scandal.
When shady arms deals lost their allure around the dawn of the millennium, Manafort turned further east to the former Soviet empire, where Russian and Ukrainian politicians and intelligence agents were busy seizing political power and glomming rubles and hryvnias. Manafort teamed up with Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, and parlayed that relationship into running the political campaigns of Ukrainian wannabe strongman Viktor Yanukovych. Along the way, he amassed tens of millions of dollars which he spent on a lavish lifestyle including mansions in Florida, the Hamptons, and a condo in Trump Tower…”

7 facts you have to remember when Donald Trump attacks the Mueller probe article from CNN. –
The dubious claims of ‘Witch Hunt’ and other pernicious claims of innocence are far from the truth when you look at the facts:
“(CNN) – At 6:54 a.m. on Thursday, President Donald Trump continued his onslaught against special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
“Did you ever see an investigation more in search of a crime? At the same time Mueller and the Angry Democrats aren’t even looking at the atrocious, and perhaps subversive, crimes that were committed by Crooked Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. A total disgrace!”
Then, at 7:16 a.m., he added:
“When will this illegal Joseph McCarthy style Witch Hunt, one that has shattered so many innocent lives, ever end-or will it just go on forever? After wasting more than $40,000,000 (is that possible?), it has proven only one thing-there was NO Collusion with Russia. So Ridiculous!”…”

Here are all the Trump bombshells that are hiding in plain sight: New Yorker reporter article from The Raw Story. –
Trump’s endless corruption and ineptitude have been on full display for decades to anyone paying attention:
“Former Trump “fixer” Michael Cohen’s surprise guilty plea on Thursday shook the political world — despite the fact that the basic facts about the Trump Tower Moscow project that Cohen lied about to Congress had been reported before.
As New Yorker staff writer Adam Davidson explained on Twitter Friday morning, the revelations that Trump had been working with Russian government officials on a deal for Trump Tower Moscow even while he was running for president shouldn’t have been surprising given past reporting on the subject.
Nonetheless, Cohen’s stunning admission this week forced the media to focus on the story in a way that it hadn’t before, while also forcing the Trump administration to respond in a way that it hadn’t in the past.
According to Davidson, there are other similar bombshell stories about Trump and his business dealings that have already been reported, but have been lost in the nonstop swirl of other Trump scandals…”

These 6 Trump officials were found to have violated a key law preventing government corruption article from Alternet. –
Which shouldn’t surprise any one given their profoundly corrupt leader:
“Six Trump administration officials violated the Hatch Act, a law that prevents federal government employees from engaging in political activities as a part of their official duties, a new letter from the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (unrelated to Special Counsel Robert Mueller) revealed Friday.
The following individuals were found to have violated the act:
-Madeleine Westerhout, Executive Assistant to the President
-Alyssa Farah, Press Secretary for the Vice President
-Jacob Wood, Deputy Communications Director for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)
-Raj Shah, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary
=Jessica Ditto, White House Deputy Director of Communications
-Helen Aguirre Ferré, then Special Assistant to the President and Director of Media Affairs
The complaints against these employees were brought by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, a watchdog group. The Hatch Act prevents elected officials from using the power of the government to support their re-election — key projection against the entrenchment of power in the United States…”

Trumpland: Get Ready for the Storm Ahead article from Counter Punch. –
On the impending shit storm heading Trump’s way that is going to take him and the rest of his corrupt family down in flames:
“The feeling is palpable: with the Christmas recess coming to Capitol Hill, and then with Democrats about to take over the House, a whole lot of shit is about to hit the proverbial fan.
So far, this is only a feeling. It is anybody’s guess in what form (or forms) it will come, and exactly when to start ducking.
However, the circumstances surrounding the impending shit storm are clear enough, at least in broad outline, despite the miasma Trump and his minions exude.
For one, the Republican Party, especially but not only at the national level, has become the Party of Trump. The party Ronald Reagan fashioned is done for, finished, kaput…”
