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…”

The wife of an alleged Russian hacker has revealed that her husband’s recent arrest is linked to President Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election.

Reuters reported on Sunday that Pyotr Levashov was arrested in Spain under a U.S. international warrant on Friday. The Justice Department declined to provide details because the case is under seal.

Levashov’s wife, Maria Levashova, told RT that the arrest is related to Russia’s interference in the U.S. election…”

Trump could end up costing Republicans big time in the 2018 elections, Trump’s war on journalism, if you like Middle East wars you’re going to love Trump – who blamed his predecessor for the Syrian gas attack despite telling him not to attack, Trump’s popularity hits yet another new low, Trump removes Bannon from the NSC, ethics issues are growing at a rapid pace, slammed for his support of Bill O’Reilly saying he didn’t think O’Reilly did anything wrong or acted inappropriately regarding his sexual harassment lawsuits, Trump cabal pondering whether or not to make visitors from Germany, France and other close allies hand over their social media passwords, creating distractions and blaming Obama for his flailing presidency, despite the lack of evidence showing Syria gassed its own people, Trump suggests he’ll so whatever he wants – including carrying out surprise attacks, which of course would be illegal, using an apparent chemical weapons attack – which will most likely end up being another false flag – as justification for invading Syria as his plans for Syria and Iraq being to take shape, another baseless claim despite having no evidence to deflect attention from his failing presidency and more.

Trump’s War on Journalism article from the Los Angeles Times. –
http://www.latimes.com/projects/la-ed-trumps-war-on-journalism/

“In Donald Trump’s America, the mere act of reporting news unflattering to the president is held up as evidence of bias. Journalists are slandered as “enemies of the people.”

Facts that contradict Trump’s version of reality are dismissed as “fake news.” Reporters and their news organizations are “pathetic,” “very dishonest,” “failing,” and even, in one memorable turn of phrase, “a pile of garbage.”

Trump is, of course, not the first American president to whine about the news media or try to influence coverage. President George W. Bush saw the press as elitist and “slick.” President Obama’s press operation tried to exclude Fox News reporters from interviews, blocked many officials from talking to journalists and, most troubling, prosecuted more national security whistle-blowers and leakers than all previous presidents combined.

But Trump being Trump, he has escalated the traditionally adversarial relationship in demagogic and potentially dangerous ways…”

CNN: Trump Team Gave Russians ‘Thumbs Up’ to Release Hillary Smears article from Mother Jones. –
http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2017/03/cnn-trump-team-gave-russians-thumbs-release-hillary-smears

“CNN has some breaking news:

The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, US officials told CNN….The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings.

….One law enforcement official said the information in hand suggests “people connected to the campaign were in contact and it appeared they were giving the thumbs up to release information when it was ready.” But other U.S. officials who spoke to CNN say it’s premature to draw that inference from the information gathered so far since it’s largely circumstantial.

Apparently this is all “raising suspicions” among counterintelligence officers about ties between Russia and the Trump campaign…”

Trump administration secretly resumes CIA drone assassination program article from the World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/03/15/dron-m15.html

“The Trump White House has secretly authorized the Central Intelligence Agency to resume drone assassination strikes that in the latter years of the Obama administration had been largely reserved for the US military, the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

The Journal cited unnamed US officials revealing that the authorization was granted shortly after Trump visited CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia on January 21, the day after his inauguration. No announcement has been made as to the change in policy, and the White House as well as the CIA and the Pentagon have declined to comment on the matter.

According to the report, the authorization initially provided to the CIA was in relation to drone strikes in Syria, where the agency killed Egyptian Al Qaeda leader Abu al Khayr al Masri in an airstrike late last month.

It appears, however, that the policy has already been expanded globally, with an apparent CIA drone strike in Pakistan that killed two men, and a wave of strikes in Yemen—more in a single week this month than in any single year under the Obama administration—for which the Pentagon failed to take responsibility…”

Donald Trump Only Knows How to Do One Thing — And It Isn’t Being President article from the Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nell-minow/donald-trump-only-knows-h_b_14689290.html

“It is time to stop pretending that Donald Trump has the intelligence, integrity, or understanding to be President. He is not smart, he is not a good person, and he is not even a good businessman. If he was smart, he would not talk about how smart he is all the time. If he was a good person, he would not lie all the time. And if he was a good businessman, he would release the tax forms and other records to prove it.

He only knows how to do one thing. It is a technique that got him pretty far on reality television and as a famous-for-being-famous-type celebrity. It has now catapulted him into a job he did not want and is hopelessly inadequate for. He knows it and yet has neither the will nor the ability to learn from his mistakes and rise to the occasion.

The sole and only thing Donald Trump knows how to do is what economists call “externalizing.” That means making others pay for your choices or behavior. He uses this technique in business and in responding to criticism.

Trump is a one-trick pony who externalized his costs over and over to make money by using the bankruptcy and tax laws and underpaying his contractors and those who worked for him to force others to pay the costs of his failures while he got to keep the profits. Those gains are probably less than he claims, of course, because otherwise he would show us the details.

That’s it. That’s all he knows how to do…”
