Misadventures of a minority-elect President 139

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 minority-elect President begin with being all shook up by the dream team of lawyers Robert Mueller is assembling to check out the stories of collusion between Russia and the Trump cabal, how to tell when our Liar-in-Chief actually believes the bull shit he’s about to spew and when he’s about to tell an outright lie, Trump’s duplicitous actions on his second foreign folly – this time talking about protecting free speech while conducting his wars on media and the truth, the importance of paying attention to Trump’s fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway, Trump staking his presidency on his war on the press, the lowdown on Trump’s fraudulent voter commission to try and justify many of Trump’s lies on the campaign trail – which, for the record, have never stopped and lots more.

Donald Trump has a ‘Tell’ article from The Daily Kos. –
https://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/7/3/1677628/-Donald-Trump-has-a-Tell

How to tell when Trump actually believes the bull shit he’s about to spew and when he outright lies:

“The Donald has a “Tell” — something that should clue in the casual observer, that what he is about to say is probably true (ie. what he really thinks or believes). Without this “unconscious verbal cue” — the veracity (or dishonestly) of what the guy says, is a crap-shoot at best.

The give-away was made plain in the Lester Holt interview: Donald Trump prefaced his great “reveal” with these 4 words, as he commenced with explaining his “inner feelings” to Holt. Those 4 words were:

“I said to myself …”

When Trump says those words, pay attention to what follows, because there is no one he wants to impress more — than himself…”

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, minority-elect president begins with the fact that it appears our Loser-in-Chief is losing the support of the morons that ‘elected’ him, Trump is telling so many lies at such an incredible rate that he can’t keep them all straight in his alternate reality, our fraudulent national embarrassment facing new problems over his Trump University scam, Trump’s fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission’ facing scrutiny as the miscreant in charge of it faces legal issues, Fox faux news – Trump’s ministry of propaganda – provided the ammo needed for his impeachment for obstructing justice, our demented delusionist’s Twitter idiocy will be preserved in time for all to see, stupid is as stupid does for our impotent popular vote losing leader, the fallacy of foreign policy in the delusion that is the Trump cabal, Senate’s current Trumpcare bill will hurt major core of Trump supporters and much more.

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:

White House tries to make Trump look good on his first dumbed-down foreign trip – despite the obvious, more evidence that there are still a lot of stupid people in this country, making friends – or a fool out of himself, depending on how you look at it – at NATO, Federal Appeals Court upholds the block on Trump’s Muslim ban, Trump can’t be trusted to keep any secrets – for obvious reasons, Trump’s Syrian war crimes piling up as his administrations illegally kills record number of civilians, Trump’s idiotic delinquent actions as he implodes over what is now a criminal investigation are going to be his downfall and more.

Why – and How – Is Trump’s Base Still Loyal to a Guy Who Is a Proven Disaster? article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/why-and-how-trumps-base-still-loyal-guy-who-proven-disaster

Trump’s minions reveal yet more evidence that there are a lot of stupid people in this country:

“Trump supporters haven’t been swayed by empathy or appeals to logic.

After all the lies, contradictions, hypocrisy, flip-flops, gaffes, unforced errors, self-pity, insults, provocations, threats, bullying, betrayals, disappointments, scapegoating, exploitation, nepotism, and corruption, why is Donald Trump still beloved by 35 percent of the country?

The most popular theory in the mainstream media is that Trumpists think Trump will bring jobs back. The hypothesis here is that their support for Trump derives entirely from economic anxiety over globalization, loss of manufacturing, the supposed failures of Obamacare, wage stagnation, income inequality, trade deficits, and soaring national debt. But economic angst does not really explain Trumpists’ unwavering devotion to Trump, whose cabinet appointments, executive orders and legislative proposals generally do not help or even pretend to help them.

Nor is the economic angst theory borne out by the evidence. As policy analyst Sean McElwee and Prof. Jason McDaniel recently wrote in The Nation, an analysis of “the comprehensive American National Election Studies pre- and post-election survey of over 4,000 respondents … [yielded] little evidence to suggest individual economic distress benefited Trump” in the 2016 election. And even though all the economic data indicate both that the unemployment rate is consistently below 5 percent and that immigrants help to improve the economy, Trumpists are determined to believe just the opposite…”

A new stage in the US health care counterrevolution article from The World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/05/08/pers-m08.html

“The passage by the US House of Representatives of the American Health Care Act is a political milestone. Never before has the US ruling elite revealed so nakedly the goal of its health care “reform” efforts of the past quarter-century. Millions of working people are to be deprived of health insurance and access to health care in order to finance a trillion-dollar payoff to the financial aristocracy.

The centerpiece of the legislation is the gutting of Medicaid, the government health insurance program for the poor, and its effective termination as an entitlement program. This will be the prelude to the destruction of Medicare and Social Security.

The massive cuts in health coverage in the bill have sparked popular outrage. Every significant occupational group in health care provision, from family physicians to psychiatrists, and advocacy groups for those suffering from cancer, heart disease, lung disease, multiple sclerosis and other illnesses have all spoken out to denounce the cruelty of the legislation endorsed so enthusiastically last Thursday by President Donald Trump.

While Democratic politicians in Congress pretend to share the public outrage, their objections to this monstrous piece of class-war legislation are purely cosmetic. The Republican legislation only does more crudely what Obamacare aimed to do more deviously, behind a cloud of reformist rhetoric: cut the cost of health care provision for American corporations and the capitalist state by shifting the burden to working people…”

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…”

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 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…”
