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:

Trying to save face after his North Korea political theater failed begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as it appears that North Korea has now restarted its nuclear program much to his chagrin, the Don has been lying about all of his scandals from day one and now it’s finally catching up with him, each passing week puts Donnie more out of touch with reality, Donald’s budget proposal shows just how delusional he is and how stupid he thinks we all are, Trump keeps sounding more and more like Nixon as his delusional denials are belied by his guilty actions, the Don’s broken promises and lies as made evident by his dystopian ‘budget’ are going to come back and haunt him while helping further destroy the GOP too, inciting violence to those that are stupid enough to support him is going to get our wannabe Don in deep crap and much more.

Trump finds a new way to falsely claim exoneration in Russia scandal article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –

For someone who keeps claiming innocents while acting guilty as hell, the Donald keeps finding new ways – albeit unsuccessfully – to lie about it.

What did the president know and when did he know it? Trump knew it all, from the beginning article from Salon. –
https://www.salon.com/2019/03/08/what-did-the-president-know-and-when-did-he-know-it-trump-knew-it-all-from-the-beginning/

The Don’s history of lying about his endless corruption has been blatantly obvious to anyone paying attention:

“Every week seems to bring another Trump scandal. There are so many now we’re going to have to start numbering them. Up until now the sheer volume of alleged misdeeds and malfeasance has actually worked in the president’s favor. There is so much out there that it’s hard to keep the whole picture straight in your mind and that has the weird effect of making things seem less serious than they actually are.

We know that the Trump base and the vast majority of Republican voters still support the president and think it’s all nothing but a witch hunt. They are mesmerized by the president and propagandized by Fox News and other right-wing media. But I would imagine that even people who don’t like Trump but don’t follow all this closely or in much detail wonder whether maybe the whole thing is just a collection of complaints that don’t really add up to anything.

That’s why it’s meaningful when the likes of Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen of Axios, journalists whom the political establishment sees as avatars of acceptable mainstream thinking, decide that it’s time to take stock of how many scandals are now being investigated and how wide the scope of the alleged criminality and corruption has become. It’s rather sobering. On Thursday they wrote out a partial list, entitling it, “The biggest political scandal in American history.”

VandeHei and Allen report that historians tell them there are only two previous scandals that even come close to what we are dealing with now: One is Watergate, and even Americans who weren’t alive at the time have heard plenty about that one. The other would be Teapot Dome, a bribery scandal under the manifestly corrupt Warren G. Harding administration in the 1920s…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our malevolent minority-elect president* with speculation over whether he will only be a one-term president – despite the fact that he may not even last through his first term as his corruption scandals continue imploding his already failed presidency, Donnie’s fraudulent past is going to haunt him and his entire family for years to come since Rico Laws could end up taking them down, how lying about being innocent on Twitter doesn’t make it true, with his house of cards about to be revealed it all its dubious glory the lies coming from Trump are growing exponentially, the Donald is already trying to delegitimize the 2020 elections because he knows he’s going to lose big time and much more.

https://www.aol.com/article/news/2019/03/01/trump-cohen-and-the-paradox-of-believing-proven-liars/23681988/

The hypocrisy of Republicans trying to paint Cohen as a liar when all Trump does is lie about everything is comical:

“Throughout Michael Cohen’s testimony this week before the House Oversight Committee, Republicans repeated what would seem to be a simple rule of human nature: Never trust a person who has been proven to be a liar.

“I want everyone in this room to think about this, the first announced witness for the 116th Congress is a guy who is going to prison in two months for lying to Congress,” Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said in his opening remarks.

But as more Republicans on the committee followed Jordan’s lead, that strategy quickly hit a wall.

“You’re a pathological liar. You don’t know truth from falsehood,” Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz, scolded Cohen, who then swiftly turned the tables on his interrogators…”

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:

Potential treason by GOP leadership in the House and Senate begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as they colluded with him to keep his crimes hidden – meaning they are just as guilty as he is, Trump’s treasonous actions are becoming glaringly evident, how Donnie’s illegal ‘National Emergency’ highlights his despotic delusions of grandeur, how the Donald’s delusions are getting worse as his alternate reality continues imploding, Donald J. Trump – the most corrupt president* in U.S. history – has made himself completely irrelevant, follow the money to see why our moronic president* declared his fraudulent national emergency and a lot of answers become crystal clear, when you listen to Cohen’s testimony to Congress it becomes glaringly evident why Trump and his GOP enablers are so terrified of him, the Don’s North Korea ‘summit’ – like his presidency – was a massive failure and much more.

Yet another case of the Donald blatantly trying to obstruct justice to try and save his sorry ass that backfired miserably…

Trump’s Efforts to Subvert Justice Reportedly Thwarted by People Just Ignoring Him article from Splinter News. –
https://splinternews.com/trump-s-efforts-to-subvert-justice-reportedly-thwarted-1832731169

There will eventually be hell to pay for aiding and abetting the treasonous felon currently occupying the White House – though currently he’s only an unindicted co-conspirator – so ignoring him is probably wise:

“The New York Times on Tuesday published a massive exposé on President Donald Trump’s ongoing efforts to subvert, deflect, and in some cases outright end the various investigations into his alleged criminal misdeeds. It’s a compelling if exhausting read, which goes to great lengths to show how Trump—increasingly frustrated by the prospect of actually facing serious consequences for his actions—has spent the past two years working to manipulate the levers of the criminal justice system to suit his own needs.

And yet there’s an undeniable subtext in the Times’ reporting: That Trump’s worst, most authoritarian inclinations are frequently stymied by the fact that those around him simply ignore his more outlandish directives.

Here’s a good example, in which the president asked then-acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker to reinstate U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey S. Berman—perceived by Trump to be a friend—to oversee the SDNY’s investigation into the president’s businesses, after Berman had recused himself (emphasis mine throughout).

He made the call to Mr. Whitaker to see if he could put Mr. Berman in charge of the New York investigation. The inquiry is run by Robert Khuzami, a career prosecutor who took over after Mr. Berman, whom Mr. Trump appointed, recused himself because of a routine conflict of interest…”

https://crooksandliars.com/2019/02/trumps-hypocrisy-anti-semitism

If anyone should resign due to their anti-Semitic comments, it’s the lackluster lame duck president* currently occupying the White House:

“Trump hypocritically demanded Rep. Omar to resign over her criticisms of AIPAC, even after she apologized, but has never apologized for praising some very fine “neo-Nazis” during a White Supremacist march in Charlottesville that turned violent.

At a Cabinet meeting in the White House on Tuesday, Trump said this about Rep. Omar, “Anti-Semitism has no place in the United States Congress, and I think she should either resign from Congress or she should certainly resign from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.”

Trump piled on her with more over-the-top rhetoric, “What (Omar) said is so deep-seated in her heart that her lame apology — and that’s what it was, it was lame and she didn’t mean a word of it — was just not appropriate. I think she should resign from Congress, frankly. But at a minimum, she shouldn’t be on committees — certainly that committee.”…”

The Don spends most of his time watching his Ministry of Propaganda and dicking off instead of running the country:

“A White House source has leaked nearly every day of President Trump’s private schedule for the past three months.

Why it matters: This unusually voluminous leak gives us unprecedented visibility into how this president spends his days. The schedules, which cover nearly every working day since the midterms, show that Trump has spent around 60% of his scheduled time over the past 3 months in unstructured “Executive Time.”

We’ve published every page of the leaked schedules in a piece that accompanies this item. To protect our source, we retyped the schedules in the same format that West Wing staff receives them.

What the schedules show: Trump, an early riser, usually spends the first 5 hours of the day in Executive Time. Each day’s schedule places Trump in “Location: Oval Office” from 8 to 11 a.m…”

Her extreme ignorance is one of the reasons that Donald shot himself in the foot and closed the government down for more than a month, and in a few weeks the stupidity is going to shift into overdrive again:

“Conservative commentator Ann Coulter lashed out at President Donald Trump Friday night over his signing of a bill that would temporarily open the government that did not include any money for his border wall.

Coulter slammed Trump for the concession, telling “Real Time” host Bill Maher *that the president had broken* “the promise he made every day for 18 months.”

“Now you’re finding out he’s a lying con man,” Maher said. “What was your first clue?”

Donnie just keeps digging himself a deeper hole he won’t be able to slither out of, and this one may cost him his entire failed presidency:

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter.

Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen.

And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying about the deal in testimony and in a two-page statement to the Senate and House intelligence committees. Special counsel Robert Mueller noted that Cohen’s false claim that the project ended in January 2016 was an attempt to “minimize links between the Moscow Project and Individual 1” — widely understood to be Trump — “in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations.”…”

Trump’s wall is now a national crisis regardless of the fact that the GOP controlled Congress for two years and did nothing but now Democrats are in charge and they will bring him down so he needs to try and stall the inevitable for as long as he can:

It’s Accountability Time for the Orange Menace article from The Nation. –
https://www.thenation.com/article/house-democrats-trump-accountability-impeachment/

Donnie is going to face a long 2019 and the longer his shutdown drags out, the worse it’s going to get for him:

“Donald Trump will be held to account in 2019. The prospect that the president and his associates will face serious congressional oversight, and that this scrutiny will provide vital checks and balances for the remainder of his disastrous presidency, is no longer in doubt. The voters settled that question in November, when they swept Trump’s Republican allies out of the House committee chairmanships they had co-opted in the service of a legally and morally indefensible president. Representative Elijah Cummings, who will now take control of the powerful House Oversight Committee, got it exactly right when he said, “Voters made clear they wanted transparency, integrity, honesty, but they wanted something else: accountability.”

Of course, there is good reason to demand that the new Democratic-controlled House send the right policy signals by approving bills to raise wages, expand access to health care and education, and address the existential crises of inequality and climate change—even if the Republican-controlled Senate refuses to go along, and even if Trump threatens to veto those bills. But the most urgent pressure that Americans can bring to bear involves the revitalization of the oversight infrastructure that crumbled during the subservient tenure of former House speaker Paul Ryan. “The saddest part of the last two years was that Ryan completely gave up our responsibility for oversight in the House,” says Congressional Progressive Caucus co-chair Mark Pocan. “As a separate but coequal branch of government, we saw no responsible actions of oversight for anything that the president or his administration did.

“Now, we’ve got a lot of pent-up work that has to happen,” Pocan continues. “But we can do that at the same time that we’re passing legislation and putting ideas forward. And it’s not just the Judiciary and Intelligence and Oversight and Government Reform committees—the ones that are traditionally seen as the committees that do this—that will be stepping up.” Trump’s ablest critics will now be positioned to issue subpoenas demanding the release of tax returns and other records, to compel key figures to face questioning, and to expose failed policies and egregious conflicts of interest not just in the White House but elsewhere in the executive branch, like the departments of Defense, Labor, and Health and Human Services.

Representative Barbara Lee secured support in the last Congress for rescinding the 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force, which has been used by three successive presidents to justify military adventurism. But Ryan blocked her move, just as he blocked a bipartisan push by Representative Ro Khanna to end US support for Saudi Arabia’s brutal assault on Yemen. Now that Ryan is gone, the House must signal that it will no longer cede authority over decisions concerning war and peace to the White House. Groups that have long sought to rein in US militarism, like Peace Action and the Friends Committee on National Legislation, now have an opening to achieve dramatic policy shifts; Americans who are rightly fearful of this president’s impulsive nature should recognize that this is essential activism on behalf of accountability—and a saner foreign policy…”

Using his Ministry of Propaganda to spread his lies begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president’s as he once again took to Fox faux news to try and deceive everyone while desperately trying to save his ignorant ass and justify his government shutdown as his delusions keep growing, why his history of fraud – and trying to cover up his criminal actions with secrecy – makes it imperative to find out what was said and done during his two hour meeting with his Sugar Daddy Putin in Helsinki, once again Donnie rants against the media for telling the truth instead of talking about his delusional ‘success’, media is starting to call Trump out on his lies and he’s not handling it well, fabricating and lying about a non-existent border crisis is going to get the Don in more legal hot water, having no credibility is proving problematic for the Don as he uses Hitler tactics to try and make the public believe we have an immigration crisis when we don’t and everyone – with half a brain – knows that all he ever does is lie, as expected the Donald used his prime time speech to lie and misinform the public about a non-existent border and humanitarian crisis – the only humanitarian crisis at the border is the one created by him – but he wasn’t stupid enough to try and declare a national emergency and much more.

Yet again Trump relied on his Ministry of Propaganda to push his lies about government workers supporting his shutdown – they don’t – while desperately trying to save face for his duplicitous actions:

Donald’s delusions are getting worse and, with any luck, eventually he’ll end up in the Psyche ward of a prison – though regardless his alternate reality is about to come crashing down.

The man doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground but Trump claims he’s an expert on everything – yet more proof that he is delusional and unfit to hold the office he holds:

We Need to Know What Happened When Trump Was Left Alone With Putin article from The Daily Beast. –
https://www.thedailybeast.com/we-need-to-know-what-happened-when-trump-was-left-alone-with-putin

Given Donnie’s history of fraud and secrecy when trying to cover up his premeditated criminal endeavors – which, like his presidency will, always fail and how his self-induced crises are compounded by his profound ignorance – it is imperative to know what happened during those two hours he met with his Sugar Daddy in Helsinki:

“Donald Trump spent two hours alone with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki in July and we still have no idea what was specifically said or agreed between two of the most powerful men in the world. (Only two interpreters, bound to silence, were present.)

How much does this matter?

Quite a lot, probably. First off, there are new concerns about Trump’s continuing susceptibility to talking points that can have only one source – Russian propaganda. More of this later. Second, it belongs in a long trail of events that have either deliberately left serious blanks in the historical record or delayed by many years discovery of the truth.

We live in a moment in America when the discovery of information is in daily hand-to-hand combat with the deliberate suppression of information. For the second time in recent history the fate of a presidency might well rest on the unhindered discovery and exposure of essential evidence. Nothing is as central to the health of a democracy as overcoming a cover-up…”

Why our wannabe Twitter tyrant Trump, whose history of ignorantly insulting wide swaths of people routinely via other methods than tweeting, has no room to talk about being insulted by anyone.

Trump’s many lies from Pinterest

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 potential serious health issues happening in National Parks as a result of his racist border wall shutdown, Trump’s legal woes are about to get much worse, an overwhelming majority blame Trump for the shutdown which he refuses to end because he says it’ll make him look foolish – though no more foolish than he already does, Donnie got jealous with Democrats making all the headlines so he had to create yet another worthless distraction for attention, Trump’s delusions and desperation are getting the best of him, Donald’s despotic delusions of grandeur – as well as his growing desperation – are once again on full display as his bluster over his racist border wall continues despite his farcical delusions that the majority supports it, still trying to blame everyone else for his profound corruption and stupidity and much more.

https://www.politicususa.com/2019/01/02/secret-court-filing-by-prosecutors-is-very-bad-news-for-donald-trump.html

Trump may have intentionally shut his government down to impede the investigations into his corruption but those investigating his criminal actions are still busy:

“As many government employees are on furlough, the federal prosecutors investigating Russia influence in the 2016 elections continued to make filings and take care of business.

The latest news that will cause Donald Trump to lose sleep is that a Joint Status Report Under Seal has been filed in the W. Samuel Patten criminal matter.

Patten is a lobbyist and political consultant who was a close partner of Russian spy Konstantin Kilimnik, as well as working for the parent of Cambridge Analytica and working with Paul Manafort…”
