Misadventures of a minority-elect President 66

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 lackluster leader hiring officials that worked for appointed President George W. Bush – since it worked so well the first time, considering making a deal to appoint another corrupt, alt-right wing U.S. Supreme Court ‘Justice,’ Trump’s deep links to organized crime, the list of lies from our Liar-in-Chief keeps growing, trying to blame his predecessor for his profoundly corrupt ignorance, why Trump is vulnerable to impeachment, our wannabe dictator celebrates Turkey’s dictator, Trump’s do-nothing presidency, Trump’s Obama-bashing hypocrisy, making more baseless promises he won’t be able to keep, emoluments clause violations could haunt our minority-elect President, more on the dipshittery over Trump’s tax returns, refusing to disclose information while shrouding everything in secrecy raises red flags over his treachery and deceptions, Georgia election GOP upset could be the start of something big, the anti-Trump resistance is growing, Ivanka’s corruption and ethics issues reveal she truly is a daddy’s girl, shutting down American-style authoritarianism, despite his constant bashing – and badmouthing – Trump and Obama have a lot in common, the real cost of Trump’s ‘fake news’ accusations and lots more.

Trump Has Deep Links to Organized Crime: Federal Investigators Know It and the Public Is Catching Up article from AlterNet. –

“As Trump built his empire, he attracted a criminal element whose ties still bind.

As President Trump discovers the prerogative of unilaterally making war, the media gaze has turned away from the ongoing FBI, House and Senate investigation of his Russia ties to the simpler dramas of cruise missiles, big bombs and tough but loose talk on North Korea.

Yet even the “mother of all bombs” cannot obliterate the accumulating body of evidence about his relationship with Russian organized crime figures and the not unrelated question about whether he and his entourage colluded with Russian officials in the 2016 presidential election. The story, notes Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, is “Hiding in plain sight.”

The evidence of pre-election collusion between Trump and the Russians, while growing, is far from definitive. The evidence on Trump’s organized crime ties is stronger. Says Marshall:

“If we’d never heard about Russian intelligence hacking of the 2016 election or Carter Page or Paul Manafort or Sergei Kislyak this [Trump’s organized crime connections] would seem like an extraordinarily big deal. And indeed it is an extraordinarily big deal.”…”

Trump supporters in the heartland fear being left behind by GOP health plan article from the Guardian. –

“Janice Phelps, a 60-year-old disabled factory worker in Evansville, Indiana, knows how expensive healthcare is.

Each month, shots for her severe asthma cost $3,000. Quarterly injections for knee pain cost $3,200. Medication for depression costs $900. She has had seven back surgeries, two shoulder surgeries, and two knee surgeries since 1985. The largest public health programs in America – Medicaid and Medicare, which aid the poor and the elderly – paid for nearly all of it.

Yet, those programs are now threatened by the men she voted for: Donald Trump and former Indiana governor Mike Pence.

“I’m all in favor of repealing it,” she said about Republicans’ push to do away with the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare. But, she said when you talk about cutting Medicaid: “I don’t agree with that at all…”

Opposition to Trump continues to grow – and from some unlikely sources article from the Daily Kos. –
