Misadventures of a minority-elect President 163

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 popular vote losing president begin with our Liar-in-Chief’s broken promise to end the illegal, unwinnable occupation of Afghanistan – opting instead to bow down to the War Hawks in Washington who wish to continue profiting from it by extending it, the importance of discussing our demented delinquent’s diminishing mental capacities, still trying to deflect attention from his unwavering support of neo-Nazis and White Supremacists during a rally full of more protesters than supporters, our dimwitted dip shit has broken virtually every promise he made while campaigning, the list of reasons to impeach our delusional Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator are growing, the lies keep coming from our lackluster, lying lame duck president in his alternate reality, aside from the morons that blindly support him, Trump is only fooling himself as his mental instability worsens, Trump’s war on the media – like his presidency – is failing miserably and much more.

‘Sh*tshow of the highest order’: Internet loses it after Trump’s ‘insane, absurd, off-the-rails’ speech article from The Raw Story. –
http://www.rawstory.com/2017/08/shtshow-of-the-highest-order-internet-loses-it-after-trumps-insane-absurd-off-the-rails-speech/

Our lackluster lame duck president tried to rally his base, without much luck:

“Donald Trump on Tuesday night spoke at a campaign-style rally in Phoenix, Arizona. After spending 45 minutes maligning the “fake news” and re-litigating his reaction to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia (while intentionally leaving out his “both sides” remark), Trump hinted he will pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio, argued anti-Confederate protestors are trying to take away “our history” and complained—live on TV—that the mainstream media is too scared to show him live on TV.

The entire event was vintage Trump and ought to dispel and notion of a “pivot,” which, believe it or not, was an idea floated Monday night after the president stayed on-script during a speech on Afghanistan.

It was a free-wheeling, decidedly “off-the-rails” speech that no-doubt satisfied Trump’s cracking base.

Here are some stellar reactions to the president’s doozy of a campaign rally (who’s he running against, exactly?), if you lack the time or will to react yourself:…”

Still trying to claim that his base isn’t dwindling, our national embarrassment’s supporters resort to posting fake photos – possibly in hopes of creating more fake news about their minority-elect leader…

Today’s misadventures of our minority-elect president begin with mounting evidence that he is indeed a lame duck president, pondering whether or not Trump will resign before Mueller finishes his investigations, a brief look at the fodder that fuels Trump’s psychopathic Twitter tantrums in his land of delusion, our popular vote losing president is having a major crisis of legitimacy – primarily because he is now and always has been illegitimate, more on the many reasons it’s time for our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator to go, the list of crimes committed by the Trump family continues growing, our Liar-in-Chief has told over 1,000 lies in his first 7 months in office – making George W.

The world takes note of Trump’s ‘failure of character’ article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/the-world-takes-note-trumps-failure-character

America’s worst-ever president is the laughing stock of the world:

“Former CIA Director John Brennan, watching Donald Trump’s reaction to Charlottesville unfold in recent days, wrote a letter to CNN yesterday, arguing that the president, though “his words and his actions,” is “putting our national security and our collective futures at grave risk.”

Brennan added that Trump is poised to do “lasting harm to American society and to our standing in the world.”

It’s that last point that may need a brighter spotlight. Much of the American mainstream has recoiled in response to seeing a president defend racist activists, but no one should forget that we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed.

The Economist, based in London, published a brutal piece in its new issue on Trump’s “failure of character,” featuring a cover in which Trump is depicted shouting into a white megaphone – which also happens to be a Klansman’s hood….”

The Real Meaning of ‘On Many Sides’ article from Slate. –
http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2017/08/in_his_speech_on_charlottesville_donald_trump_told_the_nation_exactly_what.html

Our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator won’t condemn White Supremacists because they play a large role in his support base:

“On Saturday afternoon, neo-Nazis; white nationalists; and open-carrying, camo-wearing militia members combined forces at a Charlottesville, Virginia, rally to “Unite the Right.” This congregation of white people who love the president of the United States and hate racial, ethnic, and religious minorities chanted “blood and soil” and extended their arms in stiff salutes. The rally culminated in the death of at least one person when the driver of a gray Dodge Challenger plowed through a crowd of counter-protesters, seemingly with the intent to maim and injure.

On Nov. 19, 1863, as the Union and Confederate armies waged a war to determine whether black people were property, President Abraham Lincoln stood up at the Soldiers’ National Cemetery in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and articulated his vision of what the United States should be. He called for a promise that “these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom.”

On Aug. 12, 2017, Donald Trump stood up at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, and All Lives Matter’d a Nazi rally. “We’re closely following the terrible events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia,” Trump said. “We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry, and violence. On many sides.”

He then said those three words again—“On many sides”—as if to emphasize that this throwaway phrase was in fact the only bit of his short speech that he truly believed in. He did not talk about white supremacy, and he did not note the prevalence of racist chants. The troubles in Charlottesville, the president said, were everyone’s fault. Or, to put it another way, nobody in particular was more responsible than anyone else for what happened in Virginia this weekend. Not the president. Not the party that enabled him. Not even those who idolize Adolf Hitler…”

Did Trump Really End the CIA’s Secret War in Syria? article from CounterPunch. –
https://www.counterpunch.org/2017/08/03/did-trump-really-end-the-cias-secret-war-in-syria/

No. Trump’s Syrian War Crimes are still continuing despite the lie that he ordered them to stop funding and training terrorists:

“Trump Ends Covert Aid to Syrian Rebels Trying to Topple Assad,” read a July 19 New York Times headline. Citing The Washington Post as its source, the article noted that the official termination of the “secret” U.S. program “was never publicly announced, just as the beginnings of the program four years ago were officially a secret, authorized by President Barack Obama through a ‘finding’ that permitted the C.I.A. to conduct a deniable program.”

“Mr. Trump’s decisions,” said The Times, “amounted to an acknowledgment that no escalation of the program, which began in 2013 in concert with the C.I.A.’s counterparts in Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Jordan, was likely to yield a different result.”

The CIA and its “counterparts” were intervening in Syria even before 2013, if not congruent with the brief Arab Spring mobilizations of 2011, when poor peasants, democratically minded youth, and others protested against the Bashar Assad government’s neo-liberal and repressive policies. The New York Times revealed on June 21, 2012, that the CIA had been ferrying arms, recruiting, and training anti-Assad groups based in Turkey.

The U.S. was simultaneously the major power behind the Syrian National Council (SNC), which it established to be the new Syrian “government in waiting.” The SNC consisted of an exile-based 270-member leadership core that was overseen by the U.S. State Department and funded by most of the Gulf State monarchies. Within a year the SNC exploded as it became clear that it was dominated by the Muslim Brotherhood, whose on-the-ground forces in Syria regularly collaborated with the al-Qaeda offshoot, the Nusra Front, and related jihadist groups…”

Making Sense of the Big WaPo Story and the False Statement article from Talking Points Memo. –
http://talkingpointsmemo.com/edblog/making-sense-of-the-big-wapo-story-and-the-false-statement

More on the latest grounds for bringing our lame duck Loser-in-Chief up on obstruction charges:

“Straight news reporters have to work within many important conventions. These both limit the scope of their work but are equally critical to doing that work properly and effectively. I was reminded of this when reading last night’s blockbuster report in The Washington Post.

The kernel of the Post report is a much more total and dramatic report of something we knew more tenuously in near contemporaneous reports a month ago: that President Trump had himself been involved in crafting the original statement that his son Don Jr. released in response to the original New York Times report about his June 2016 meeting with that Russia lawyer. That alone represented a stunning failure on the part of his aides. Since they implicated the President in both the knowledge of those events and whatever misstatements were included in the response to them – something with possibly severe legal implications. What the Post now reports is that not only was Trump the apparently sole author of the false statement – he apparently dictated the copy – but that he overruled his top aides and advisors to construct that false statement.

This is a fact of immense consequence.

Based around that central nugget of news are several other points which become clear on reading. One is the Kushner team’s interest in transparency. This is not credible, to put it mildly. That doesn’t mean the factual account is untrue in its narrow particulars. It may have been Kushner lawyer Abbe Lowell’s strategy with the particular evidence of this meeting or in conversations with the Post for this story. But the global message is hardly credible…”

This October, Trump Will Try to Start a War with Iran article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/right-wing/vijay-prashad-trump-setting-dangerous-confrontation-iran

Ramping up his war crimes in Syria isn’t enough for our national embarrassment so he wants to start another illegal war with Iran for Israel based on false pretenses:

“Something extraordinary has happened in Washington. President Donald Trump has made it clear, in no uncertain terms and with no effort to disguise his duplicity, that he will claim that Tehran is cheating on the nuclear deal by October—the facts be damned. In short, the fix is in. Trump will refuse to accept that Iran is in compliance and thereby set the stage for a military confrontation. His advisors have even been kind enough to explain how they will go about this. Rarely has a sinister plan to destroy an arms control agreement and pave the way for war been so openly telegraphed.

The unmasking of Trump’s plans to sabotage the nuclear deal began two weeks ago when he reluctantly had to certify that Iran indeed was in compliance. Both the US intelligence as well as the International Atomic Energy Agency had confirmed Tehran’s fair play. But Trump threw a tantrum in the Oval Office and berated his national security team for not having found a way to claim Iran was cheating. According to Foreign Policy, the adults in the room—Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, and National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster—eventually calmed Trump down but only on the condition that they double down on finding a way for the president to blow up the deal by October.

Prior to the revelation of Trump’s Iran certification meltdown, most analysts and diplomats believed that Trump’s rhetoric on Iran was just that—empty talk. His bark was worse than his bite, as demonstrated when he certified Iran’s compliance back in April and when he renewed sanctions waivers in May. The distance between his rhetoric and actual policy was tangible. Rhetorically, Trump officials described Iran as the root of all problems in the Middle East and as the greatest state sponsor of terror. Trump even suggested he might quit the deal.

In action, however, President Trump continued to waive sanctions and admitted that Iran was adhering to the deal. As a result, many concluded that Trump would continue to fulfill the obligations of the deal while sticking to his harsh rhetoric in order to appease domestic opponents of the nuclear deal—as well as Trump’s allies in Saudi Arabia and Israel…”

“This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.?” Scaramucci told The New Yorker. “Because I nailed these guys. I’ve got digital fingerprints on everything they’ve done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice.”

The Justice Department declined to comment on the remarks, but FBI agents and federal prosecutors told The Daily Beast that Scaramucci may have disclosed evidence of criminal wrongdoing…”

Yet another bull shit rant about fake news by our Twitter tyrant after being called out on shutting down one of his continuous Syrian War Crimes:

“President Trump blasted and appeared to threaten the Washington Post in a series of tweets Monday night, after the newspaper ran a story on his Syria policy.

“The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad,” Trump wrote in the first of a three-tweet storm about the paper around 10:30 p.m.

The paper had just published a story online saying, “Cooperation with Russia becomes central to Trump strategy in Syria.”

The story said Trump’s policy “essentially carves up Syria into no-go zones for each of the players — President Bashar al-Assad’s fight, with Russian and Iranian help, against rebels seeking to overthrow him, and the US-led coalition’s war to destroy the Islamic State.”…”

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…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 147

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 minority-elect President with him whining about the possibility of his finances being looked at in his growing Russia scandal, mounting evidence that Trump and his duplicitous cabal have been colluding with Russia for quite some time, abdicating his presidential duties, America’s worst-ever president reveals yet again in another interview why he has no business being in the White House and is incapable of being presidential, our delusional delinquent is quickly creating more quagmires to drown himself in, results of millions of people standing up to the corruption that is today’s politics and our illegitimate president who continues making America worse again, the irony of Trump’s ‘Made in America’ Week as his second White House requests more foreign workers and lots more.

Childish Rants or Putin-Style Propaganda? article from Mother Jones. –
http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/07/trump-rants-propaganda/

Our Loser-in-Chief is taking a page out of a Russian Propaganda handbook on deflecting and trying to flip the discussion to an opponent – making it appear even more that he and the miscreants he calls an administration have been working together with Russia for quite some time:

“President Donald Trump does not directly answer questions about his campaign’s or administration’s interactions with Russian officials. He deflects, pointing at his opponents. (That is, when he’s not outright denying the connections even exist.)

“Look what Hillary Clinton may have gotten away with. Disgraceful!” the president tweeted as his son came under fire for meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer during the 2016 presidential campaign with the explicit hope of obtaining negative information about the Democratic candidate. The president also complained on Twitter, “Why is that Hillary Clintons [sic] family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?”

It may sound like a defensive child’s playground cry—“Look at what she did!”—but it also echoes a traditional Russian propaganda strategy called “whataboutism,” a diversionary tactic that sidesteps criticism by arguing “What about them?” or “See what my opponent did!”

The technique was widely used by the Soviet Union during the Cold War in battles with the United States for moral superiority in areas of human rights, says Dmitry Dubrovsky, a Russian scholar at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. For example, when the Soviet Union was criticized for actions like the imprisonment of dissidents, officials’ response would be along the lines of, “What about apartheid?” The whataboutism strategy has made a comeback and evolved in President Vladimir Putin’s Russia. The Kremlin is no longer arguing about who’s morally superior, Dubrovsky says; now it’s arguing that the morals underlying democratic ideals don’t exist at all…”
