Misadventures of a minority-elect President 183

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 pathetic, illegitimate, popular vote losing president begin with his outrageous, never-ending boasts which reveal just how desperate he has become to try and prove he is legitimate despite the obvious, Trump and his ilk have lied repeatedly (84 times so far) about his fraudulent tax reform scam, there is more than ample evidence that proves our Imbecilic leader did indeed obstruct Justice, still waiting for the evidence to back up all of Trump’s bogus claims and lies, how we are reminded on a daily basis that Trump has serious cognitive deficits and is unable to control his delusional mind, preparing for a major meltdown as our fake president’s fake news comes roaring back to bite his big Orange ass despite trying to blame Hillary Clinton, Mueller indictments make you wonder why our lackluster lame duck leader hired the people he did while campaigning, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator almost has enough rope to hang himself as his Russia scandal engulfs him, it turns out our illegitimate president is a bigger war criminal than his predecessor and much more.

Lawmakers Want to Forbid Trump From Launching Unauthorized Preemptive Strike Against North Korea article from Common Dreams. –
https://www.commondreams.org/news/2017/10/27/lawmakers-want-forbid-trump-launching-unauthorized-preemptive-strike-against-north

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…”

It doesn’t matter if Donald Trump is ‘crazy’ – what matters is whether he can be stopped article from Salon News. –
http://www.salon.com/2017/09/05/it-doesnt-matter-if-donald-trump-is-crazy-what-matters-is-whether-he-can-be-stopped/

It’s truly sad how ignorant Trump’s minions are:

“A portion of our country also managed to fall deeply in love with Donald Trump — a “reality” TV star who maintains an even more tenuous relationship with reality than did his hero, the much more lovable Ronald Reagan. Trump and Reagan have opposite temperaments — Reagan eternally sunny, Trump ever dark, but both sell similar societal delusions. Trump manages to be truculently wrong on every existential question facing humanity — denying global warming, encouraging pollution, promoting resource depletion, enjoying saber rattling, opposing population and gun control, escalating obscene inequality, and trampling on civil rights protections. He has the demeanor of a circus barker, the integrity of a con man, the temperament of a neighborhood bully, the breathtaking ignorance of an arrogant know-nothing, the political instincts of a führer, and the policies of a tribal nationalist.

All the problems that are inherent in American exceptionalism are now very badly compounded by Trump exceptionalism. Trump doesn’t qualify for a mental disorder, but he does present with one of the world’s best-documented cases of lifelong failure to mature. He is a boy/man who expects everything to go his way and experiences the world as an extension of himself. Other people exist only to do his imperious bidding, admire his great deeds, and gratify his enormous wants. This is perfectly age-appropriate behavior in a young child, but is perfectly inappropriate in a president. Trump fancies himself the nation’s Big Brother, but he is really our neediest Big Baby. Trump is bad, not mad, but we the people are mad for having elected such a terribly flawed person to the most powerful position in the world. His heady rise was surprisingly undeterred by his consistent pattern of boldfaced lying; constant flip-flopping; irresponsible incitement to violence; and self-congratulatory bigotry, racism, and sexism. Blustering, bullying, and bravado play well on reality TV but can be disastrous in real life when you are running a country. No one less qualified to be president has ever won the office. No one so dangerous to our democracy has ever been given its most powerful position.

Trump is an unlikely messenger bearing an unwelcome message about the sanity of our body politic. He has revealed and unleashed a deeper streak of delusional denial in a larger segment of U.S. society than even I would have thought possible. Thomas More’s hope for a utopian America has decayed into a Trumpian dystopia. Trump’s slogan “Make America Great Again” (stolen, appropriately enough, from Ronald Reagan) disguises policies that in fact make America small, fearful, angry, petty, and vicious. Karl Marx once quipped, “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce.” The Trump phenomenon marks what I dearly hope will be a bottom in both American tragedy and farce…”

Today’s misadventures of our popular vote losing president begin with our Liar-in-Chief’s broken promise to end the illegal, unwinnable occupation of Afghanistan – opting instead to bow down to the War Hawks in Washington who wish to continue profiting from it by extending it, the importance of discussing our demented delinquent’s diminishing mental capacities, still trying to deflect attention from his unwavering support of neo-Nazis and White Supremacists during a rally full of more protesters than supporters, our dimwitted dip shit has broken virtually every promise he made while campaigning, the list of reasons to impeach our delusional Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator are growing, the lies keep coming from our lackluster, lying lame duck president in his alternate reality, aside from the morons that blindly support him, Trump is only fooling himself as his mental instability worsens, Trump’s war on the media – like his presidency – is failing miserably and much more.

‘Sh*tshow of the highest order’: Internet loses it after Trump’s ‘insane, absurd, off-the-rails’ speech article from The Raw Story. –
http://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/shtshow-of-the-highest-order-internet-loses-it-after-trumps-insane-absurd-off-the-rails-speech/

Our lackluster lame duck president tried to rally his base, without much luck:

“Donald Trump on Tuesday night spoke at a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, Arizona. After spending 45 minutes maligning the “fake news” and re-litigating his reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia (while intentionally leaving out his “both sides” remark), Trump hinted he will pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio, argued anti-Confederate protestors are trying to take away “our history” and complained—live on TV—that the mainstream media is too scared to show him live on TV.

The entire event was vintage Trump and ought to dispel and notion of a “pivot,” which, believe it or not, was an idea floated Monday night after the president stayed on-script during a speech on Afghanistan.

It was a free-wheeling, decidedly “off-the-rails” speech that no-doubt satisfied Trump’s cracking base.

Here are some stellar reactions to the president’s doozy of a campaign rally (who’s he running against, exactly?), if you lack the time or will to react yourself:…”

This October, Trump Will Try to Start a War with Iran article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/right-wing/vijay-prashad-trump-setting-dangerous-confrontation-iran

Ramping up his war crimes in Syria isn’t enough for our national embarrassment so he wants to start another illegal war with Iran for Israel based on false pretenses:

“Something extraordinary has happened in Washington. President Donald Trump has made it clear, in no uncertain terms and with no effort to disguise his duplicity, that he will claim that Tehran is cheating on the nuclear deal by October—the facts be damned. In short, the fix is in. Trump will refuse to accept that Iran is in compliance and thereby set the stage for a military confrontation. His advisors have even been kind enough to explain how they will go about this. Rarely has a sinister plan to destroy an arms control agreement and pave the way for war been so openly telegraphed.

The unmasking of Trump’s plans to sabotage the nuclear deal began two weeks ago when he reluctantly had to certify that Iran indeed was in compliance. Both the US intelligence as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency had confirmed Tehran’s fair play. But Trump threw a tantrum in the Oval Office and berated his national security team for not having found a way to claim Iran was cheating. According to Foreign Policy, the adults in the room—Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster—eventually calmed Trump down but only on the condition that they double down on finding a way for the president to blow up the deal by October.

Prior to the revelation of Trump’s Iran certification meltdown, most analysts and diplomats believed that Trump’s rhetoric on Iran was just that—empty talk. His bark was worse than his bite, as demonstrated when he certified Iran’s compliance back in April and when he renewed sanctions waivers in May. The distance between his rhetoric and actual policy was tangible. Rhetorically, Trump officials described Iran as the root of all problems in the Middle East and as the greatest state sponsor of terror. Trump even suggested he might quit the deal.

In action, however, President Trump continued to waive sanctions and admitted that Iran was adhering to the deal. As a result, many concluded that Trump would continue to fulfill the obligations of the deal while sticking to his harsh rhetoric in order to appease domestic opponents of the nuclear deal—as well as Trump’s allies in Saudi Arabia and Israel…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our popular vote losing president with lessons in loyalty – or in his case the lack thereof, in Trump’s land of delusion, he has convinced himself that he’s almost as good as Abraham Lincoln, our demented delinquent’s obsession with his illegitimate presidency is making us all less safe, backlash from Trump’s Boy Scout pep rally speech begins, our Twitter tyrant steps us his ignorant tirades against his political enemies, Trump’s efforts to distract from his growing scandals are failing miserably, how Trump keeps using Twitter – which refuses to stop him despite the obvious violations of their policies – to bully enemies and try to distract from his growing list of crimes and scandals and much more.

As Trump Prepares to Fire Mueller, the Rule of Law Has Never Been Weaker in Washington article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/trump-signals-intent-fire-special-prosecutor-congress-signals-surrender

As our popular vote losing president threatens to fire Mueller and plays games with Sessions it has become blatantly obvious that the Rule of Law in non-existent in Washington’s Culture of Corruption:

“As President Trump drops increasingly broad hints that he believes he is above the law, Congress and the public face an impending crisis that will test whether the Republican Party is more loyal to Trump or to the rule of law. The crisis is all but certain, and the outcome is very much in doubt.

In talking up his “complete power” of pardon, humiliating Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and denigrating special prosecutor Robert Mueller, Trump has made clear that he doesn’t believe any investigation of his campaign’s contacts with the Russian government is legitimate. “A special counsel should never have been appointed in this case,” Trump told the New York Times.

With investigators closing in on his friends and family, time is not on Trump’s side. But the weakness of the rule of law is.

The pace of the various investigations is picking up. Mueller has assembled a high-powered staff. The House and Senate intelligence committees both grilled Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner this week. The Senate Judiciary Committee, led by Iowa Republican Chuck Grassley, has now joined the hunt, issuing a subpoena for Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager. If Trump doesn’t act soon, more revelations—or indictments—could further limit his options to act…”

White House Confuses Taiwan And Chine In Painful G20 Press Release Blunder article from Talking Points Memo. –
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/xi-trump-taiwan-china-g20

Revealing yet again that our Ignoramus-in-Chief is anything but presidential:

“Just before leaving the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday, President Donald Trump held a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Following that high-level talk, the White House blasted out a transcript of Trump’s public remarks preceding the meeting, a document that called Xi “President Xi of the Republic of China.”

One problem: the “Republic of China” refers to Taiwan. China is referred to as the “People’s Republic of China.”

This is not the first time that Trump has blundered into the extremely sensitive question of Taiwan’s sovereignty.

Before he was even sworn into office, Trump angered China by taking a phone call from Taiwan’s president, something a U.S. leader has not done in decades. Though Trump defended the call at the time, he later told Xi he would honor the “one China” policy and not recognize Taiwan’s status as a sovereign nation…”

Trump’s ’emoluments’ defense argues he can violate the Constitution with impunity. That can’t be right article from The Los Angeles Times. –
http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-chemerinsky-emoluments-law-suits-20170626-story.html

Ah the hazards of trying to be a dictator in a democracy:

“When the president of the United States violates the Constitution there must be a way for a federal court to hear the case and provide a remedy. Three different lawsuits have been filed against President Trump claiming that he is violating the emoluments clauses of the Constitution by receiving unlawful payments or other benefits from foreign governments and from the United States.

Trump’s position is that the federal courts can hear none of these suits because no one has “standing” to sue him for these constitutional violations. But that can’t be right: It cannot be that the president can violate the Constitution with impunity and no court has the authority to hold him accountable.

Article I, Section IX of the Constitution prevents any person holding a federal office from receiving a “present” or “emolument … of any kind whatever” from a foreign state. This was meant to limit foreign influence in the U.S. by broadly forbidding elected or appointed officials from being obligated to another government.

Trump, because he hasn’t removed himself from his business empire, is constantly on the receiving end of benefits from foreign states. Among the most notable examples: Trump has more than 100 registered or provisionally approved trademarks in China, including six that were requested a year ago and gained preliminary approval last week, and his hotels and restaurants are being booked by foreign representatives whose governments foot the bill…”

The Kremlin’s Investment in Trump Is Paying Off article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/trump-putin-russia/531420/

Since taking office our illegitimate national embarrassment has shown himself to be a pro-Russian puppet:

“Fifty-four years ago this month, former President John F. Kennedy delivered the “Strategy of Peace,” a powerful address that captured America’s indispensable leadership at the height of the Cold War. Kennedy knew that our country could not guard against the Soviet Union alone, for he believed that “genuine peace must be the product of many nations, the sum of many acts.”

Incredibly, the man who now leads the United States seems to find himself locked in an alarming and perilous embrace with the Russian government. These ties threaten to weaken a system of alliances that have held Russia—and countless other threats to the international community—at bay since the conclusion of the Second World War.

In his Senate testimony two weeks ago, former FBI Director James Comey affirmed a disturbing suspicion: that Donald Trump first undermined Comey, by leaning on him to drop his investigation of former National Security-Adviser Michael Flynn, and then removed him from his post. Since then, events have escalated at a dizzying pace: Trump accused Comey of lying under oath about their interactions earlier this year, even as he cheered Comey’s public assertion that the president wasn’t under FBI investigation. Soon, reports emerged that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating obstruction-of-justice allegations against the president—revelations Trump was none too happy about. And all the while, rumors have continued to swirl that Trump may fire both Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who’s overseeing the special counsel inquiry.

But Trump’s reckless handling of these events should not distract from a startling reality: As the president faces accusations of colluding with the Russians during last year’s campaign, his policies in office have aligned almost perfectly with the Kremlin’s goals. If Moscow wanted its interference in America’s election to yield dividends, it could hardly have hoped for more…”

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 popular vote losing President’s misadventures begin today with questions of an actual investigation into his malfeasance despite mounting evidence that he obstructed justice, trying to take out Syria’s President Assad while backing ISIS belies our War Criminal-in-Chief’s claims of fighting terror, why our Loser-in-Chief’s profound ignorance and corruption are so dangerous, the lies keep coming from our Ignoramus-in-Chief, Fox faux news still acting as our Liar-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda, poor people are only good for one thing – their votes – to Trump who, it turns out, can’t handle not having a mandate and losing all legitimacy, growing dangers of Trump’s Syrian War Crimes, how to fight back against the fraudulent atrocity called Trumpcare and a lot more.

The anti-innovation presidency article from Politico. –
http://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/06/23/the-anti-innovation-president-000464

Having no policies and no mandate is causing issues for our impotent leader:

““Innovation” is one of those Washington priorities, like “security” or “the children,” that politicians in both parties tend to describe as investments rather than spending. Even as budget wars have raged on Capitol Hill, there’s been a fairly broad consensus that funding research and development is vital to American competitiveness. The Beltway seems to churn out an inexhaustible supply of bipartisan reports proclaiming that bigger government investments in science and technology today will pay economic dividends for taxpayers down the road.

This week has been “tech week” at the White House, and President Trump has jumped onto the rhetorical bandwagon, hailing the glories of innovation. “My administration is embracing a new spirit of innovation that will make life better for all Americans,” he told a group of technology leaders gathered in the Oval Office on Monday; he doubled down Thursday, promising another group of new-economy executives that his government would “help unleash technological breakthroughs that will transform our lives.”

But Trump’s 2018 budget goes the opposite direction: It proposes the deepest cuts in innovation investments that any administration has ever proposed.

Not only does the Trump budget slash climate science and clean energy research beloved by Trump’s critics, it whacks advanced manufacturing programs and fossil energy research catering to Trump’s supporters, as well as basic science and medical research beloved by almost everyone. It’s a powerful rejection of the innovation-industrial complex, and even though Congress is likely to ignore most of it, a similarly powerful reflection of Trump’s political war on Washington elites…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 118

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 illegitimate popular vote losing president begins with the absurdity of the spin being spewed by his minions – defending ignorance with ignorance – after Comey’s testimony, how ‘free speech’ rallies are actually a breeding ground for Trump-loving terrorists, Trump’s infrastructure privatization scam is losing ground, Trump willing to lie under oath about Comey conversations, the demented disaster that is the Trump presidency, it’s growing more difficult for Trump’s brown shirts to defend him based on his own words, why Trump’s infrastructure privatization scam won’t work, our national embarrassment’s ‘justice’ department trying to justify Trump being able to take payments from foreign governments, the Donald Trump lies you forgot and a lot more.

Many of Trump’s more ignorant minions are prone to turning violent – especially when encouraged to do so by our Loser-in-Chief.

Trump’s ‘infrastructure week’ goes off the rails article from The Hill. –
http://thehill.com/policy/transportation/337046-trumps-infrastructure-week-goes-off-the-rails

Trump’s infrastructure privatization scam is already falling apart:

“The White House’s self-proclaimed “infrastructure week” has generated a flurry of headlines on nearly everything else.

Part of the reason the initiative was overshadowed was ex-FBI Director James Comey’s gripping testimony on Capitol Hill, which commanded the attention of Washington and major cable news networks all week.

But much of the derailment on the infrastructure rollout has been of President Trump’s own making. He repeatedly veered off message in tweets and during infrastructure-themed speeches, flouting some of White House staffers’ carefully laid plans.

“They tried really hard, and certainly several people inside care deeply about this,” said Marcia Hale, president of Building America’s Future, who worked under the Clinton administration…”
