Misadventures of a minority-elect President 68

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:

Trump’s White House tries clearing up our illegitimate leader’s N. Korea ‘armada’ faux pas, whining about negative news coverage – when he brings it all upon himself, the fact that Trump is President is reason enough NOT to go to war with North Korea, Trump’s deep swamp – which in one of the most corrupt in history, why we need to know more about Trump’s relationship to another war criminal and how it shapes his foreign policy, Trump’s 100-day report card is coming – and it’s not good, Trump’s chronic low approval rating, Trump’s ‘buy American’ executive order applies to everyone but him, the White House’s game on Russia exposed in all its deceptive glory, major chemical company lobbying Trump and his duplicitous swamp to hide the effects of their product from the public, contradicting – albeit probably lying as usual – his State Department over the Iranian nuclear ‘deal,’ the Trump cabal has its own weekly far-right bible study group, TrumpCare 3.0 – which the White House is trying to shove down everyone’s throats – is even worse than its predecessors, Trump’s fraudulent Syrian gas attack fairy tale fueled by George W. Bush’s fraudulent Iraq playbook and more.

Some complain that evening news coverage of Trump are reportedly over 90% negative. Maybe that’s because he’s such a moron?

Trump is president. That’s reason enough not to go to war with North Korea article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/20/trump-president-reason-not-go-war-north-korea

“Famous quotes sometimes become clichés that insult one’s intelligence. Consider, for example, the oft-cited phrase “Know your enemy, and know yourself,” from the 5th century BCE Chinese general Sunzi. How can ignorance about one’s own ability and capabilities, and the enemy’s, be anything but harmful?

Fast forward 2,500 years, to an April 17 interview on Fox, when US President Donald Trump twice referenced “this gentleman” in North Korea, who “outplayed” Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama – to explain that he, Trump, would not be fooled. The problem, however, is Trump didn’t seem to understand that the “gentleman” Kim Jong Il, who frustrated Trump predecessors, died in December 2011, and therefore no longer rules North Korea.

After weeks of provocative language from Pyongyang and Washington, the two sides are dangerously close to conflict – and Trump doesn’t seem to understand who leads the country he might attack.

Managing North Korea has been an almost uniquely difficult problem for US presidents. And the three generations of Kims who have ruled the nation since its founding in 1948 – Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un – have shown an almost unique willingness to endanger and sacrifice the lives of North Korea’s people for their own enrichment and security, weakening American-led effects to sanction and isolate the country…”

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. –
http://www.alternet.org/why-trump-going-be-unable-hide-his-deep-connections-organized-crime-figures-investigators

“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.”…”

“President Trump rose to power on a combination of meanness, incoherence and falsehoods. His strategy depended almost entirely on playing off the unpopularity and weaknesses of others.

Every aspect of his approach has blown up on him since he took office, but as is always the case with Trump, he will not take any personal responsibility for what’s going wrong. He must find a scapegoat. The latest object of his opprobrium would seem to be Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist.

But dumping Bannon would only underscore the extent to which Trump is a political weathervane, gyrating wildly with the political winds. He’s “populist” one day, conventionally conservative the next, and centrist the day after that. His implicit response is: Who cares? Let’s just get through another week…”

ANYTHING AT ALL CAN HAPPEN IN THE AGE OF TRUMP article from The Intercept. –
https://theintercept.com/2017/01/21/anything-at-all-can-happen-in-the-age-of-trump/

“WELCOME TO THE Age of Trump, where no one has any idea what the policies of the President of the United States are, including the President of the United States.

There has never before been a U.S. president whose stated goals were as simultaneously vague, preposterous, and contradictory.

Nor has there ever been a president who has intermittently taken strong stances that were so directly at odds with his own party’s most fervent dogma and his own appointees.

Nor has there been a president who was as completely uninterested in the basics of politics. It’s as though America is playing in the World Series with a manager who truly doesn’t care about baseball.

What this adds up to is that there’s not a single person who knows exactly what the Trump administration is going to try to do. No one could be surprised if Trump suddenly announced that he wants NASA to send a team to colonize Neptune; that he’s going to lead the team; and that he’s signed a deal with China to personally make $3 billion for the reality show syndication rights…”

US drops largest non-nuclear weapon on Afghanistan: A crime against humanity article from the World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/04/14/pers-a14.html

“The US military’s dropping of the largest non-nuclear weapon in its arsenal on the Afghanistan-Pakistan border Thursday is a crime against humanity. Even as the US government and the mass media were engaged in a lying propaganda campaign denouncing Syria and Russia for the use of poison gas, the American military was positioning the monstrous weapon—the Massive Ordnance Air Blast (MOAB)—for use in Afghanistan.

While the Pentagon has released few details about the impact of the bombing, one can be certain that the total number of deaths resulting from the dropping of the MOAB is a massive multiple of the number killed in the alleged Syrian gas attack, assuming—and this is by no means certain—that the gas attack even took place.

Seventy-two years after the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, American imperialism has proven once again that it is the most ruthless and criminal force on the planet.

The use of the MOAB has implications that extend beyond Afghanistan. It demonstrates—and this is, in fact, the principal aim of the attack—that there are no restraints on what the US military is prepared to do in pursuit of the interests of American imperialism…”

The Russia story just keeps getting worse for President Trump article from CNN. –
http://edition.cnn.com/2017/04/12/politics/trump-carter-page-russia-devin-nunes/index.html

“Two stories dealing with Russia’s meddling in the election broke Tuesday night. And both were full of bad news for President Donald Trump.

The first, an exclusive to CNN, revealed that a number of Democratic and Republican lawmakers on the House and Senate intelligence committees who have seen classified documents see no evidence that Obama administration officials did anything unusual or illegal, further suggesting Rep. Devin Nunes, R-California, misled Trump (and the public) when he described documents relating to the unmasking of Trump campaign officials caught up in an incidental collection operation by the intelligence community.

Write CNN’s Jim Sciutto, Manu Raju and Eric Bradner:

“Their private assessment contradicts President Donald Trump’s allegations that former Obama national security adviser Susan Rice broke the law by requesting the “unmasking” of US individuals’ identities. Trump had claimed the matter was a ‘massive story.'”…”
