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:

Tensions between our first lady and our minority-elect President’s daughter, how Trump’s FCC appointee is purposely subverting Internet and privacy laws for corrupt corporations, 25 primarily ineffective Executive Orders from Trump so far, if you thought Trump’s first 100 days were a joke, just wait for the remainder of his term, Trump’s fake war on fake news, still claiming Mexico will pay for his wall, the growing list of scandals involving our fraudulent, lackluster leader, how our Con Artist-in-Chief has made a career of making morons think his failures were not failures, be prepared for a week of alternative facts to try and claim success for Trump’s 100th day in his alternate reality, Trump’s difficulty with learning from his past mistakes, the chameleon presidency – same old Generals, same old war and why it’s so hard to believe a thing he or the corrupt cesspool of a swamp he calls his administration says, part one of Trump’s 100 days of deconstruction and more.

Analysis: A bumpy 100 days for Trump? Just wait for the 1,361 to follow article from USA Today. –

“WASHINGTON — Think President Trump’s first 100 days were bumpy? Just wait for the 1,361 to follow.

It’s no surprise that Trump, who has been shattering political precedent since he announced his candidacy and then won the White House, would continue to break new ground once he moved into the Oval Office — though not always in a good way.

The courts have blocked his signature immigration ban. Congress has balked at delivering on his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The FBI is investigating Russian meddling in the election, an issue that forced the resignation of his national security adviser and is likely to cast a shadow over the administration for months or more. The public gives him record-low approval ratings for a new president.

Braced for bad reviews when Trump reaches the unofficial milestone Saturday, the White House has been pushing back on the idea that his first 100 days have been a bust…”

Our minority-elect President’s administration decides to honor Australian refugee deal once labeled as ‘dumb’ by Trump as his popularity plummets, the plan to celebrate his first 100 days in a rally – since he desperately needs to feel the support of like-minded minions, destroying Lady Liberty to make America great again, still trying to push Trump’s Syrian gas attack fairy tale, revelations that Trump Derangement Syndrome is becoming pertinent, once again our fraudulent Liar-in-Chief breaks a promise – though this time it violates the U.S. Constitution, the fact that Trump tweets about terrorist attacks only when it pertains to the relevance of his delusional rhetoric, the former Florida AG that Trump bought off to derail his Trump University fraud suddenly has a new job in his administration, how Trump’s organized crime ties could come back to haunt him, the Trump cabal’s war on black and brown Americans, our warmongering leader take great pride in ‘his’ military, Trump’s despicable claim of being committed to protecting the environment while obnoxiously doing everything he can to destroy it, highlights of Trump’s 93rd day of misadventures, Trump’s inaugural donor list contains massive evidence of fraud, Trump’s big Pavarotti lie, Trump’s illegitimate DHS Secretary wants you to know the problem is you – not them and more.

“It’s no secret President Donald Trump’s approval rating on the national level has been relatively low his entire tenure in the White House. But polls show he’s also struggling to garner support in the swing states that won him the 2016 presidential election over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Roughly 41.9 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance, compared with 52.3 percent who disapprove, according to the FiveThirtyEight aggregate of polls. Polls from swing states similarly show Trump’s approval rating under water, making him the least popular newly elected president in decades.

A March survey of Wisconsin found 41 percent of registered voters approved of his job performance while 47 percent disapproved. A February poll conducted by Franklin & Marshall College found just 32 percent of voters in Pennsylvania approved of Trump’s job performance. An EPIC MRA survey the same month pegged his support in Michigan at 40 percent, with 54 percent disapproving. In Ohio, a March Baldwin Wallace University poll found 49 percent of the state viewed the president unfavorably, while 46 percent viewed him favorably.

And it goes on. In North Carolina, which Trump won narrowly, his approval rating stood at just 36 percent earlier this month, according to a High Point University poll. Fifty-four percent disapproved. In Florida, a large, key state that helped hand Trump the win, his approval stood at just 34 percent with two-thirds of the state disapproving, according to a February survey by Florida Atlantic University. A poll later in February by Associated Industries of Florida did find that 81 percent of Republicans approved of Trump’s job performance…”

Trump pushes reactionary ‘Buy American, Hire American’ plan article from The World Socialist Web Site. –

“President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday making it more difficult for skilled workers from other countries to obtain temporary work visas in the US. The order also called for a review of trade deals to enforce “Buy American” clauses and mandated government agencies to use American-made steel and other goods in federally funded projects and contracts.

The measures, Trump said, were part of his “Buy American, Hire American” policy, which would “send a powerful signal to the world: We’re going to defend our workers, protect our jobs, and finally put America first.”

Trump’s program of economic nationalism, along with his savage witch-hunting of immigrant workers, is the domestic counterpart to the administration’s ever more violent military provocations around the world. With the support of the trade union bureaucracy, Trump is peddling the lie that foreign workers and “unfair trade deals” with China, Mexico and other countries, not the relentless pursuit of profit by the American ruling class, are the causes for chronic unemployment and stagnant wages.

Aware that American workers are already tired of endless wars and their financial and human cost, the Trump administration is trying to divert social anger outward even as its program of expanding militarism, corporate tax cuts, deregulation and social spending cuts imposes greater hardships and inevitably provokes working class opposition…”

Trump Effect: Dems Shatter Fundraising Records article from NBC News. –


“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…”

The Russia story just keeps getting worse for President Trump article from CNN. –

“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.'”…”

Deaths from US bombings triple in Syria, Iraq article from the World Socialist Web Site. –

While our media fawns over his Syrian gas attack fairy tale, our illegitimate president is killing far more children and civilians than the Syrian military’s bombing of an al-Qaeda weapons depot that was storing noxious chemicals responsible for killing those children and Trump’s illegal attack on the Syrian Air Force. One major question going unanswered is where did al-Qaeda get noxious chemicals from?

A multi-level analysis of the US cruise missile attack on Syria and its consequences article from The Saker. –

A little lengthy but well worth the read:

“The latest US cruise missile attack on the Syrian airbase is an extremely important event in so many ways that it is important to examine it in some detail. I will try to do this today with the hope to be able to shed some light on a rather bizarre attack which will nevertheless have profound consequences. But first, let’s begin by looking at what actually happened.

The pretext:

I don’t think that anybody seriously believes that Assad or anybody else in the Syrian government really ordered a chemical weapons attack on anybody. To believe that it would require you to find the following sequence logical: first, Assad pretty much wins the war against Daesh which is in full retreat. Then, the US declares that overthrowing Assad is not a priority anymore (up to here this is all factual and true). Then, Assad decides to use weapons he does not have. He decides to bomb a location with no military value, but with lots of kids and cameras. Then, when the Russians demand a full investigation, the Americans strike as fast as they can before this idea gets any support. And now the Americans are probing a possible Russian role in this so-called attack. Frankly, if you believe any of that, you should immediately stop reading and go back to watching TV. For the rest of us, there are three options:

1. a classical US-executed false flag

2. a Syrian strike on a location which happened to be storing some kind of gas, possibly chlorine, but most definitely not sarin. This option requires you to believe in coincidences. I don’t. Unless,

3. the US fed bad intelligence to the Syrians and got them to bomb a location where the US knew that toxic gas was stored.

What is evident is that the Syrians did not drop chemical weapons from their aircraft and that no chemical gas was ever stored at the al-Shayrat airbase. There is no footage showing any munitions or containers which would have delivered the toxic gas. As for US and other radar recordings, all they can show is that an aircraft was in the sky, its heading, altitude and speed. There is no way to distinguish a chemical munition or a chemical attack by means of radar…”

Trump’s Authoritarian Vision article from the Los Angeles Times. –

“Standing before the cheering throngs at the Republican National Convention last summer, Donald Trump bemoaned how special interests had rigged the country’s politics and its economy, leaving Americans victimized by unfair trade deals, incompetent bureaucrats and spineless leaders.

He swooped into politics, he declared, to subvert the powerful and rescue those who cannot defend themselves. “Nobody knows the system better than me, which is why I alone can fix it.”

To Trump’s faithful, those words were a rallying cry. But his critics heard something far more menacing in them: a dangerously authoritarian vision of the presidency — one that would crop up time and again as he talked about overruling generals, disregarding international law, ordering soldiers to commit war crimes, jailing his opponent.

Trump has no experience in politics; he’s never previously run for office or held a government position. So perhaps he was unaware that one of the hallmarks of the American system of government is that the president’s power to “fix” things unilaterally is constrained by an array of strong institutions — including the courts, the media, the permanent federal bureaucracy and Congress. Combined, they provide an essential defense against an imperial presidency…”

“Donald Trump’s presidency is not normal, and neither is the way it’s being photographed

Many of the most iconic photos of Barack Obama’s presidency came from Pete Souza, the official White House photographer. Granted extensive access to Obama, he shot the Osama Bin Laden war room photo, moments the president shared with Michelle Obama, the many famous images of the president interacting with kids, and countless more. These carefully composed photos so defined the public image of Obama that it nearly made Souza a household name.

In its visual representation, as in so many other respects, the Trump administration has made a break with the past. Most of what we see of Trump comes from either the traveling pool of press photographers or the smartphones of his staff. On the one hand there are Getty Images or Reuters shots of Trump standing at podiums (or pretending to drive a truck). And on the other, we get unusually informal images of him posing with world leaders or appearing to be caught off guard. In the meantime, the White House’s Flickr account was purged, and the “Photos” section was removed from the official website…”
