Misadventures of a minority-elect President 190

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:

Today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president begin with Trump’s latest rally supporting another sexual predator running for Senate in Alabama being a bust as most of the arena was empty, once again our fake president is crying about fake news while trying to discredit the imminent implosion from his Russia scandal, the utter hypocrisy of our fake president’s war on fake news, yet more evidence that the fraudulent tax reform scam pushed by Trump and the GOP is nothing but a con, the majority of Americans believe Trump and his administration are the most corrupt in American history, more on the endless lies told by Trump and the miscreants in his administration with total unapologetic impunity, a guide on how to recognize and combat our wannabe dictator’s authoritarianism tendencies, how Trump’s dubious deeds and corrupt actions are doing the opposite of making America great again, our contraceptive inducing president’s popularity among Fox faux news fans is dropping drastically, Trump inadvertently admits his tax reform scheme is a scam and much more.

As his support drops to a new low, Trump makes history article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/his-support-drops-new-low-trump-makes-history

Less than one year into his tenure, Trump is officially making records as the worst president in American history:

“As the first year of the Donald Trump presidency nears its end, most national polling puts his approval rating in the mid- to high-30s, which is roughly where it’s been since the summer. The latest national report from the Pew Research Center found that the Republican president has actually reached a new low, with his support dropping to just 32%.

To put that in context, among other presidents from this generation, Bill Clinton had the lowest approval rating at the end of his first year, and his support stood at 48% at this point in 1993. Trump is 16 points below that level, which is just embarrassing. The president wanted to make history, and he has, though probably not in the way he had in mind.

But going through the results, I was especially interested in the shifts in attitudes among traditional Trump supporters.

Currently, 76% of Republicans and Republican leaners approve of Trump’s job performance, compared with 84% who did so in February. […]…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 189

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 pondering who is calling the shots in the Middle East – and Washington in general – since it’s obvious from his denigrated mental deficiencies that it’s not Trump, a look at the long list of sexual misconduct allegations against America’s worst-ever president, on the many reasons and lies being pushed by Trump and his miscreantic GOP ilk to pass their fraudulent tax reform scam, the evidence of Trump’s Obstruction of Justice is piling up, people are pissed about the Senate’s illegal and immoral passage of Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam, how to handle the tirades of our trolling Twitter tyrant, it appears Trump’s lawyers may be just as stupid as he is, channeling Nixon to claim he is above the law isn’t going to end well for our lackluster lame duck leader, our Pinocchio in the White House is telling more lies each day as the pressure of his Russia scandal continues imploding his failed presidency and much more.

http://www.politicususa.com/2017/11/29/analysis-exposes-gop-tax-scam-16-tax-cuts-2027.html

Trump and his miscreantic GOP ilk are lying to ram their fraudulent tax reform scam through Congress:

“Despite the repeated promises from Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress that their tax proposal would shower the middle-class with “beautiful” tax cuts, a new analysis finds that by 2027, just 16 percent of households would actually see a decrease in their tax bill.

According to The Hill, citing an analysis from the Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), just 60 percent of households would see a cut of at least $100 in the plan’s first year of implementation – but those cuts would quickly evaporate by 2027.

Ultimately, the analysis found, most Americans would either see no changes at all or be sacked with a tax hike.

Trump told the troops a lot of strange things during his illiterate speech to them, much of which was foolish gibberish, while yet again putting his incorrigible ignorance on full display.

Ending net neutrality is the atom bomb in Trump’s war on the truth article from The Philadelphia Inquirer. –
http://www.philly.com/philly/columnists/will_bunch/ending-net-neutrality-is-the-atom-bomb-in-trumps-war-on-the-truth-20171122.html

Removing net neutrality will make it harder for the truth to be seen by millions of people instead of the propaganda pushed by corporate media:

“It’s so fitting that the Trump administration announced what may prove to be its most democracy-altering decision yet — a push by the pro-Trump Federal Communications Commission to end so-called net neutrality on the internet — on the Tuesday afternoon flowing into Peak Thanksgiving. It was as if the government wanted an overfed nation overdosing on tryptophan and TV blowouts of the Dallas Cowboys to nap through the news that the giant corporations of Big Telecom are about to gain massive control over the information that Americans consume, until it is just too late for regular folks to rally opposition to the latest episode of “Big Brother: America” from our reality-show president. Simply put, Team Trump didn’t want the average American to have good information about what is fast becoming the defining feature of our 45th presidency: It doesn’t want the public to have good information.

The cloud of chaos emanating from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days makes it easy to lose the big picture. When the president of the United States is getting up before sunrise to Twitter-trash-talk a basketball dad (who, like most of Trump’s targets these days, just happens to be black) with an inane racist comparison to Don King, or arguing that it’s better in Alabama to vote “perv” than vote “Democrat,” while no actual legislation is getting passed, it’s easy to get lost in the hourly outrage cycle and view The Donald as an unhinged nut, his presidency in flames.

But behind the smoke and mirrors, Trump World is getting stuff done — bad stuff, like the gutting of many major regulations that once protected our environment, or the toxic police-state culture created by “taking the gloves off” ICE enforcement agents or your local cops, or installing regressive judges across the land. But the defining feature of Donald Trump’s presidency is its all-encompassing war on the truth. The tactic is the stream of lies that the president spews — sometimes dozens in a week. But the broader strategy is equally alarming: Trump hopes to extend and expand his reign of dishonesty by remaking the media landscape with fewer, diminished sources of valid facts, elevating the handful of outlets that worship our Dear Leader (Sinclair, Fox) while seeking to destroy the credibility and reputation of everyone else.

Trump’s big, bad idea is so universal it can embrace ideas that seem to be contradictions — until you look a little closer. How else to explain the fact that the FCC — controlled by a majority of pro-Trump commissioners — is, with its all-but-a-done-deal rollback of net neutrality, giving the gift of a lifetime to monster communication companies like Philadelphia-based Comcast, Verizon and AT&T. Yet at the same time Trump’s Justice Department seems to be taking an anti-big-business stance in opposing the planned merger of AT&T and Time-Warner without the spin-off of key assets like Time-Warner’s CNN, the bete noir of Trump’s rabid fan base…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 187

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:

A temporary presidential moment – doing what he’s supposed to be doing while demanding accolades for doing it despite the fact that one good deed does not nullify the thousands of bad deeds he’s done – begins today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president, tweeting about one claim of sexual abuse when you’re responsible for more than a dozen reveals just how stupid our national embarrassment truly is, Trump is the biggest liar in U.S. history to occupy the White House – and it only took them a little over 10 months to figure that out, why much of the media won’t call out Trump for the endless lies he tells, much of the chicanery being perpetrated by America’s most corrupt-ever president is flying under the radar due to his exploding Russia scandal which is about to engulf him, speculation as to why our nefarious narcissist continues shooting himself in the foot, many of Trump’s supporters continue showing they’re just as ignorant as the moron they support, our raunchy racist in the White House again turns to Twitter to try and deflect from his failed presidency, Trump’s GOP brown shirts have – so far – protected their illegitimate leader from at least 16 sexual assault accusations though that could change soon, when a corrupt president’s corrupt FCC appointee rewrites media-ownership rules and destroy net neutrality for corrupt corporations Americans will pay a heavy price for it and much more.

Trump’s presidency may present ‘the greatest psychiatric disaster in history’ article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2017/11/17/trumps-presidency-may-present-the-greatest-psychiatric-disaster-in-history/

Having a demented delinquent in control of America’s nuclear arsenal could easily prove disastrous:

“Donald Trump’s presidency is dangerous and destructive. Because he is an autocrat and petit-fascist, he has repeatedly demonstrated contempt for American democracy. His personal and political behavior has diminished America on the world stage. He has torn apart basic assumptions about political normality in an effort to expand his power. His speech and actions, first as a candidate and now as president, have either expressly or tacitly and encouraged political violence against nonwhites, Muslims and any other group the American far right views as its enemies.

There is considerable evidence to suggest that Trump is personally corrupt and is using the presidency to enrich himself, his family and other members of his cabal at the literal expense of the American people. His behavior also indicates that he is likely beholden to Russian President Vladimir Putin instead of the people and interests of the United States.

These matters are made worse by Donald Trump’s clear and obvious mental health challenges, which include malignant narcissism, chronic if not pathological lying and sociopathy.

What can be done about this national and global emergency? Why do Trump’s voters and other supporters continue to back him with what seems like blind loyalty? Has chaos and malignant reality that Trump has forced upon the American people negatively impacting our mental health and well-being? If Donald Trump is in fact a malignant narcissist, what sort of threat does he pose to world peace?…”

What You Need to Know About Trump’s Latest Judicial Appointments article from Truthout. –

When America’s worst, most corrupt president appoints judges Americans are going to have serious problems and ‘Justice’ no longer exists:

“Republican President Donald Trump’s policy agenda has been moving at a snail’s pace — at least, it has for anything that hasn’t involved him simply signing executive orders.

Still, there is one place he has been remarkably successful, and that is at stacking the courts with far right judicial nominees. Benches that were left empty for years thanks to GOP filibustering and partisanship are now being loaded with a line of judges hand-picked by conservative action groups, leading us to a permanent social conservative judiciary that could haunt the country for decades to come.

The President’s earlier appointments — especially his Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch — gave us a clear guideline of the pro-business, anti-civil liberties, anti-federalism type nominees we could expect from the White House, and that has continued unabated even into the most recently confirmed candidates.

Take Joan Larsen: she will now serve on the US Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, despite opposition from 27 LGBTQ advocacy organizations who brought up Larson’s troubling record on gay rights issues, including calling the Supreme Court’s strike down of the Texas ban on sodomy “revolutionary.”…”

13 Trump Allies and Counting Busted in Explosive ‘Paradise Papers’ Leak article from Alternet. –

Another week another scandal for our dimwitted dip shit that will prove costly:

“The U.S.-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ), the publishers of the high-profile Panama Papers leaks, published another database — The Paradise Papers — on Sunday revealing offshore of “some of the world’s most powerful people and companies.”

The Paradise Papers include around 13.4 million leaked documents, including nearly 7 million loan agreements, financial statements, emails, trust deeds and other paperwork from the Bermuda law firm Appleby Group Services Ltd. Appleby was named offshore firm of the year by Legal 500 UK in 2015. The law firms branches are in Bermuda, Isle of Man, Jersey, Guernsey, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Mauritius and the Seychelles, and it has a presence in Hong Kong and Shanghai.

“The Paradise Papers reveal offshore interests and activities of more than 120 politicians and world leaders, including Queen Elizabeth II whose private estate indirectly invested in a rent-to-own loan company accused of predatory tactics. At least 13 allies, major donors and Cabinet members of U.S. President Donald Trump appear, including Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’s interests in a shipping company that makes millions from an energy firm whose owners include Russian President Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law and a sanctioned Russian tycoon,” the press release by ICIJ summarized.

Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut said Ross had misled Congress and the Americans by concealing his ongoing stake in the company, Navigator…”

6 Loose Ends in Mueller’s Investigation That Could End Up Shaking Trump’s Presidency article from Alternet. –
https://www.alternet.org/election-2016/six-loose-ends-muellers-investigation-could-have-big-implications

Trump’s collusion woes from his growing Russia scandal are just beginning:

“Despite denials by the White House and dismissive right-wing media coverage, special counsel Robert Mueller’s opening salvo—the indictments and a guilty plea—has stunned Washington for its aggressiveness, legal positioning and comprehensive strategy that suggests the Trump campaign and White House’s problems will only deepen.

“The first big takeaway from Monday morning’s flurry of charging and plea documents with respect to Paul Manafort Jr., Richard Gates III and George Papadopoulos is this: The president of the United States had as his campaign chairman a man who had allegedly served for years as an unregistered foreign agent for a puppet government of Vladimir Putin, a man who was allegedly laundering remarkable sums of money even while running the now-president’s campaign, a man who allegedly lied about all of this to the FBI and the Justice Department,” wrote Susan Hennessey and Benjamin Wittes for LawfareBlog.com.

“The second big takeaway,” they continued, “is even starker: A member of President Trump’s campaign team admits that he was working with people he knew to be tied to the Russian government to ‘arrange a meeting between the campaign and the Russian government officials’ and to obtain ‘dirt’ on Hillary Clinton in the form of thousands of hacked emails—and that he lied about these activities to the FBI. He briefed President Trump on at least some of them.”

By Tuesday morning, we know Manafort and Gates are taking one legal path—fighting the special counsel’s indictment, its accusations, in court, while Papadopoulos already has pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents, and is most likely cooperating with investigators to reduce his sentence. Mueller’s first moves have been characterized by lawyers as a classic opening salvo in launching “a big case,” which raises a series of questions and loose ends starting with: what else does he know and who else is targeted?…”

Allowing a psychopath with diminished mental capacities to be in charge of America’s nuclear weapons is a really bad idea:

“With diplomacy between Washington and Pyongynag on its “last legs” and President Donald Trump continuing to ratchet up tensions, scores of U.S. lawmakers just introduced legislation to prevent him from launching a pre-emptive strike against North Korea.

Denouncing Trump’s “reckless” conduct, Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, explained why many feel the president needs to held in check. “During the campaign,” he said, “people feared a President Trump with the power to initiate a nuclear conflict—less than a year later, those fears are far too close to being realized.”

Conyers was joined by fellow Democrat Sen. Edward Markey of Massachusetts in sponsoring the bicameral legislation (pdf), called the “No Unconstitutional Strike Against North Korea Act of 2017,” which was introduced Thursday. Among the 61 co-sponsors are two Republicans—Reps. Thomas Massie of Kentucky and Walter Jones of North Carolina.

The legislation states: “The American people, America’s allies in Asia, and the entire world have been deeply troubled by escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula.” It calls for no Pentagon or other federal agency funds to be used to launch a first strike against North Korea unless Congress has given approval…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate minority-elect bigot president with his continuing fight over his inept handling of notifying military families of their loss – particularly when the family isn’t White, the GOP and their brown shirt leadership are aiding and abetting Trump’s crimes, more revelations on the scam that is Trump’s fraudulent tax reform plan, GOP still trying to cover up our dimwitted dip shit’s crimes by focusing on Hillary Clinton, our Liar-in-Chief caught in another lie as emails reveal he lied about contacting gold star families, despite the infinite revelations of his profound stupidity our demented delusionist falsely claims he’s smart and has a great memory, how Trump’s intentional sabotage of Obamacare will affect us all, when you can’t prove your innocence simply provide yet another distraction plus much more.

Why the Dealmaker in Chief can’t negotiate any agreements article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/why-the-dealmaker-chief-cant-negotiate-any-agreements

Aside from the fact that he’s a pathological liar who can’t be trusted:

“Donald Trump has long boasted that he has a unique skill that others lack. “Deals are my art form,” the Republican bragged. “Other people paint beautifully or write poetry. I like making deals, preferably big deals. That’s how I get my kicks.”

As we’ve discussed before, the evidence to back up these boasts has always been elusive – no one has ever been able to prove that Trump actually excels in negotiations or deal-making – but he kept talking about his expertise as a guy who knew, perhaps better than anyone in the world, how to seal a deal. Trump’s books were ghost-written, but he’s ostensibly the author of The Art of the Deal.

And yet, nine months into his presidency, Trump hasn’t negotiated any meaningful deals with anyone. The Washington Post had a good piece yesterday highlighting one of the hindrances to the president’s goals as a negotiator.

President Trump campaigned as one of the world’s greatest dealmakers, but after nine months of struggling to broker agreements, lawmakers in both parties increasingly consider him an untrustworthy, chronically inconsistent and easily distracted negotiator…”

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/10/will-trump-go-down-as-the-worst-president-in-history/

Yes, as there is little doubt about that:

“Almost half of Americans polled believe Donald Trump will be remembered as one of the worst presidents in U.S. history.

According to a Marist poll released on Thursday, 42 percent believe Trump’s legacy will be as one of the country’s worst leaders, while 16 percent think he will be remembered as a below average president.

In contrast, 7 percent believe the Republican businessman will go down as one of the best leaders in U.S. history, while another 11 percent believe Trump will be remembered as an above average president and 19 percent believe he will be thought of as an average president.

Along party lines, the poll found 48 percent of Republicans believe Trump will be remembered as either one of the best presidents in history (22 percent) or an above-average leader (26 percent), while 70 percent of Democrats feel he will go down as among the worst of the country’s leaders…”
