Misadventures of a minority-elect President 154

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 popular vote losing president begins with his ongoing war crimes in Syria where he has killed thousands of civilians in a dubious attempt at overthrowing the Bashar al-Assad regime while funding and training terrorists, growing evidence that in addition to being illegitimate, Trump is a lame duck president no longer feared by many in Washington, the delusional dipshittery of the miscreants Trump surrounds himself with aren’t doing him any favors, why threats and Trump’s reality TV show – as opposed to having a version of Trump resembling anything remotely presidential – aren’t cutting it and much more.

The Past 5 GOP Presidents Have Used Fraud and Treason to Steer Themselves to Electoral Victory article from AlterNet. –

Trump is just the latest illegitimate GOP President to perfect their system of defrauding and disenfranchising voters to ‘win’ elections while committing treason and other high crimes.

Fox-Conned: After Trump’s healthcare debacle, next up is fake jobs and fiscal malpractice article from The Raw Story. –
http://www.rawstory.com/2017/07/fox-conned-after-trumps-healthcare-debacle-next-up-is-fake-jobs-and-fiscal-malpractice/

With the defeat – for now – of his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway Trump and his GOP brown shirts can move on to the next items on their dubious agenda to enrich their masters:

“In Donald Trump’s mafioso-style presidency, appearances are reality. Trump courts chaos solely to appear strong and decisive. That was his standard for Trumpcare: getting a win at any cost.

If an early version of the Republican healthcare bill had passed, the Center for American Progress estimated up to 2.9 million jobs would have been lost by 2022. It didn’t matter that the forgotten men and women of Trump’s America would be hammered by cuts to rural healthcare systems overburdened with opioid addicts. It only mattered that Trump could brag that he was the top dog.

That disaster has been delayed — Trump will sabotage Obamacare out of sheer vindictiveness — so it’s on to the next debacle.

That is likely to be tax reform. The scheme is to shower the wealthy like Trump with tax cuts, inching closer to Grover Norquist’s dream of making government so small he can “drown it in the bathtub.”…”

We begin today’s misadventures of our minority-elect President with Trump making history as the only president not to reach 50 percent approval rating during his first 6 months, Trump’s other Russia scandal is being overlooked, the Trump celebration from the stock market is coming to an end, working for our psychopathic demented delinquent is exhausting, our Twitter Tyrant’s rants against Clinton and his other enemies don’t work and actually make him look even more stupid, forcing through a vote on his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway will cost Trump, our popular vote losing president’s creation of a fraudulent ‘voter integrity’ commission will never justify his lie about winning the popular vote and much more.

What President Trump Actually Accomplished in His First 6 Months article from New York Magazine. –
http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/07/what-trump-actually-accomplished-in-his-first-6-months.html

Despite Trump’s lies he hasn’t accomplished a lot – aside from being the most unpopular president in history:

“The first six months of the Trump administration have been marked by a massive revitalization of the U.S. manufacturing sector, an end to the lawlessness of the Obama years, and a new respect for America on the world stage, thanks to the president’s soaring, Reaganesque rhetoric — at least, that’s what this video released by the White House would have you believe:

In reality, President Trump is historically unpopular, and despite having a Republican-controlled Congress, he hasn’t passed any major legislation. Many measures Trump promised to enact on day one — including overhauling the tax code, building a wall on the southern border, and repealing and replacing Obamacare — have been delayed, curtailed, or possibly killed by disagreements within the GOP.

But amid all the chaos of President Trump’s first six months in office, he has managed to enact some measures that have a concrete effect on Americans’ lives. Here’s how Trump has changed America in the first eighth (or sixteenth) of his presidency:

Put Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court
Though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell deserves the credit for stealing President Obama’s final Supreme Court appointment, technically it was Trump who replaced the late Justice Antonin Scalia with an equally conservative 49-year-old justice. As FiveThirtyEight notes, in his first few months on the job, Justice Gorsuch has proven to be just what conservatives were hoping for:…”

Today’s misadventures of our minority-elect President begins with Trump trying to deflect the investigation into his Russia scandal as it starts taking its toll on him, six months into America’s nightmare and our popular vote losing president is still in office, the fact that our national embarrassment questions pardoning himself and his other miscreants – including his family – speaks volumes as to how guilty they really are, our demented delinquent is now officially America’s least popular president in history, Trump’s Russia scandal keeps taking all kinds of twists and turns as he brings in more propagandists to try and keep up with all his lies and deceptions, our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s land of delusion is imploding at a rapid rate, the price we all pay for the stupidity of a few and much more.

Trump Reportedly Asked Legal Team About His Power to Pardon Aides, Family, Even Himself article from Slate. –
http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/07/20/trump_reportedly_asked_lawyers_about_his_power_to_pardon_aides_family_himself.html

If our national embarrassment, his family and his illegitimate administration weren’t guilty of treason – and many other things – Trump wouldn’t be trying to see how far his power to pardon goes:

“Donald Trump’s legal team is, predictably, looking for ways to push back against the Mueller investigation into Trump World and undermine its credibility. It’s a strategy straight from the playbook of former President Clinton, who launched withering attacks on independent prosecutor Kenneth Starr during the 1990s, branding him partisan and biased in an attempt to turn public opinion against Starr’s aggressive broadening of what started as an investigation into land development deals that came to be known as Whitewater and ended with Monica Lewinsky and impeachment. But, along with pursuing perceived conflicts of interest on Mueller’s team as a means to knock the probe off course, according to the Washington Post, Trump himself has asked his legal team about his own power to pardon not just aides and family members, but also himself.

From the Post:

Currently, the discussions of pardoning authority by Trump’s legal team is purely theoretical, according to two people familiar with the ongoing conversations. But if Trump pardoned himself in the face of the ongoing Mueller investigation, it would set off a legal and political firestorm, first around the question of whether a president can use the constitutional pardon power in that way.

The power to pardon is granted to the president in Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, which gives the commander in chief the power to “grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.” That means pardon authority extends to federal criminal prosecution but not to state level or impeachment inquiries. No president has sought to pardon himself, so no courts have reviewed it…”

INSIDE TRUMP’S WEST WING: FEAR, RECRIMINATIONS, AND NO MORE ‘CONSPIRACY BULLSHIT’ article from Vanity Fair. –
http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/inside-trumps-west-wing-trump-jr-russia

Our national embarrassment’s growing scandals are making life hell in the White House:

“Returning from Europe last weekend, White House aides had hoped to spin Donald Trump’s divisive meeting with President Vladimir Putin as a turning point for an administration whose agenda has been overshadowed by allegations of campaign collusion with Russia. “Let’s talk about how to move forward,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had told the press on Friday, explaining that Trump had raised the issue of Russian election interference but was prepared to move on as partners in the war on terror and, improbably, on cybersecurity. “The question is what do we do now?” Instead, as the U.S. delegation flew back to Washington on Saturday, Trump’s inner circle reportedly found themselves huddled in the back of Air Force One, where they crafted a statement for Donald Trump Jr. to give The New York Times, explaining why he had met with Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya last June. According to people with knowledge of the discussion, the airborne group debated as to how transparent the statement should be, according to the Times’ Maggie Haberman and Peter Baker.

Not very, as it turned out.

The president signed off on a sparse statement that claimed the meeting was primarily focused on the issue of U.S.-Russian adoption—an explanation that quickly fell behind a fast-evolving story, as the Times followed up with a series of reports revealing that not only did Trump Jr. know that the point of the meeting was to obtain damaging information about Hillary Clinton, but that the promised dirt was said to come explicitly from the Russian government. Seeking to get ahead of the story, the president’s son on Tuesday released four pages of communications with Rob Goldstone, the intermediary who brokered the meeting with Veselnitskaya. In the e-mails, Goldstone says that the lawyer has negative information about Clinton that is part of the Russian government’s efforts to bolster Trump’s campaign. Trump Jr. responded with unfortunate enthusiasm: “I love it.”

Blindsided staffers are reportedly in panic mode after the latest revelation, which appears to substantiate some of the worst fears about the Trump campaign’s unsavory relationship with Russia. Many people within the White House had dismissed the Trump-Russia affair as “conspiracy bullshit,” one Trump adviser told Politico. Now, aides are “essentially helpless” to contain the fallout from a story that has its origins in the heady “anything goes” days of the campaign. Members of Trump’s inner circle are reportedly filled with paranoia and suspicion over the identities of the “three advisers to the White House” who were the sources for the blockbuster Times story…”

Trump Gives His Twitter Version Of Putin Meeting article from Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-gives-twitter-version-putin-152401666.html

Our national embarrassment’s second foreign trip was a rousing success and life is good in Trump’s land of delusion:

“Sunday mornings are one of President Donald Trump’s favorite times to tweet, and this week he decided he wanted to clarify what happened at the G20 summit, and give his version of events of his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The G20 summit is a forum where economic leaders and heads of state of the world’s top economies meet to discuss world issues. This year the summit took place in Hamburg, Germany. On Friday during the summit Trump met with Putin in a meeting closed to the press, the only other people in attendance were Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and two translators.

When the meeting was over, there were two competing narratives of what took place, especially when it came to discussions of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

“They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject,” said Tillerson in an off-camera briefing, according to CNN Friday. “The President pressed President Putin on more than one occasion regarding Russian involvement. President Putin denied such involvement, as I think he has in the past.”…”

All the bogus cries of ‘fake news’ by our fake president are for naught – unless you’re in the minority that ‘elected’ him:

“A new online poll finds that Americans trust CNN, The Washington Post and The New York Times more than President Trump, Axios reported Tuesday.

But amid Trump’s ongoing war against the press, trust is largely split among partisan lines, with 89 percent of Republicans viewing Trump as more trustworthy than CNN while 91 percent of Democrats think the opposite.

Among all adults, trust for CNN is 7 points ahead of Trump; among independents, CNN wins by 15 points.

Trump on Sunday tweeted a doctored video of a wrestling match between himself and CNN, escalating an ongoing war of rhetoric between the president and the cable news outlet, which he has repeatedly dismissed as “fake news.”…”

In order to work for a fraud you apparently need to be a fraud:

“Donald Trump’s new lawyer is the Donald Trump of lawyers.

On paper, Donald Trump is a lawyer’s dream client. Deep pockets. A seemingly never-ending stream of legal problems. And a high-profile that can transform his confidants into minor celebrities.

Trump’s the kind of client that could pay off a lawyer’s mortgage, put their children through college, buy them a sexy sports car, and leave them with enough attorney’s fees left over to pay for a vacation home.

And yet Trump’s struggled to find counsel to represent him in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s Russia ties. As one lawyer told Yahoo News’ Michael Isikoff, “the guy won’t pay and he won’t listen.” Trump’s reputation as a blowhard who doesn’t pay his bills and won’t stop sending damaging tweets reportedly left many of Washington’s best lawyers unwilling to represent the President of the United States…”

Groveling Before the Mad King: Donald Trump’s Cabinet of Sycophants article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/donald-trumps-cabinet-sycophants

On the Nazi-esque cabinet meeting our wannabe dictator recently held:

“On Monday, June 12, the 143rd day of his presidency, Donald Trump convened his first meeting with all his Cabinet members. As they sat in the West Wing of the White House, Trump first complimented himself before asking them to praise his accomplishments as president.

Trump’s Cabinet members dutifully responded, one by one. But White House chief of staff Reince Priebus’ groveling was perhaps the most pathetic: “On behalf of the entire senior staff around you, Mr. President, we thank you for the opportunity and the blessing you’ve given us to serve your agenda and the American people. And we’re continuing to work every day to accomplish those goals.”

This is not funny. This is not normal.

Trump is vainglorious, a personality trait that can be compelling for a character in a Shakespearean tragedy or a Greek play, but disastrous when channeled by the leader of a country.

Trump’s actions on Monday are but one more reminder that he is a plutocratic authoritarian with no regard or respect for basic norms of democracy or human decency. He leads a cult of personality whose members will not abandon him; he is backed by a political party that worships power and will abandon American democracy in order to advance its goals…”

Trump lies so much that he can’t keep up with them all – and it’s hurting the ‘media’ that support him and pushes his lies.

If Republicans lose the House, Trump will be impeached article from The Los Angeles Times. –

Trump’s brown shirts in Congress won’t be able to protect our popular vote losing president for much longer:

“The 1998 midterm election was a debacle for Republicans, particularly then-Speaker Newt Gingrich. Since Reconstruction, no president had seen his party gain seats in the House in a midterm election six years into his presidency. Gingrich, who made the election a referendum on impeaching President Clinton, resigned after the loss. Clearly the voters had sent the signal, “Don’t do it.”

The White House thought it had dodged a bullet. But one morning, over Thanksgiving break, then-White House Chief of Staff John Podesta was running in Washington’s Rock Creek Park when it hit him: GOP leaders are “not going to let their members off the hook. They’re going to beat and beat and beat on them until they vote for impeachment.”

It fell to Podesta to tell the still-celebrating White House staff that the midterms meant nothing, the push to impeach the president in the House was a runaway train that could not be derailed. “This thing is rigged,” Podesta announced at a Monday morning staff meeting. “We are going to lose.”

President Trump’s White House could use a John Podesta about now. Because no one seems to have told them that the Democrats are every bit as committed to impeaching Trump as the GOP was to impeaching Clinton. The difference, of course, is that the Democrats don’t control the House — yet…”

Donald Trump has unleashed a white crime wave article from Business Insider. –
http://www.businessinsider.com/donald-trump-and-white-crime-2017-6

On how Trump is fueling right-wing hatred and encouraging terrorism:

“Last week, in Portland, Oregon, a man with a history of white supremacist rhetoric allegedly killed two men and injured one other who had tried to stop his harassment of two young women—one black, the other wearing a hijab.

A week earlier, in College Park, Maryland, another young man—active in white supremacist Facebook groups— killed a black college student after confronting him on the street, according to police. In March, a white supremacist reportedly traveled from Baltimore to New York City with the express purpose of killing a black man, which he did, before turning himself into police. Earlier that month , a Sikh man was shot and injured in front of his house in a Seattle suburb.

His alleged attacker reportedly shouted “go back to your country.” Days earlier, in Kansas, authorities described how a man walked into a bar and shot three men , including two immigrants from India, after shouting “get out of my country” and yelling racial slurs. One of the Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, died of his wounds. More recently, a California man was alleged to have stabbed a black man with a machete after yelling racial slurs—he’s facing charges—and a Native American man was run down and killed by an assailant who allegedly shouted racial slurs.

These events are not isolated. They represent a growing tide of intolerance in the United States, fanned by the presidential election and embodied by the sitting president. At the same time, they—and the larger forces they represent—aren’t novel. The rise of racist reaction in politics almost always brings a similar rise of racist violence in civil society. For as much as the current period feels new, we are living through an old, and very American, cycle of behavior…”
