Misadventures of a minority-elect President 128

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…”

Our popular vote losing President’s misadventures begin today with questions of an actual investigation into his malfeasance despite mounting evidence that he obstructed justice, trying to take out Syria’s President Assad while backing ISIS belies our War Criminal-in-Chief’s claims of fighting terror, why our Loser-in-Chief’s profound ignorance and corruption are so dangerous, the lies keep coming from our Ignoramus-in-Chief, Fox faux news still acting as our Liar-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda, poor people are only good for one thing – their votes – to Trump who, it turns out, can’t handle not having a mandate and losing all legitimacy, growing dangers of Trump’s Syrian War Crimes, how to fight back against the fraudulent atrocity called Trumpcare and a lot more.

The anti-innovation presidency article from Politico. –
http://www.politico.com/agenda/story/2017/06/23/the-anti-innovation-president-000464

Having no policies and no mandate is causing issues for our impotent leader:

““Innovation” is one of those Washington priorities, like “security” or “the children,” that politicians in both parties tend to describe as investments rather than spending. Even as budget wars have raged on Capitol Hill, there’s been a fairly broad consensus that funding research and development is vital to American competitiveness. The Beltway seems to churn out an inexhaustible supply of bipartisan reports proclaiming that bigger government investments in science and technology today will pay economic dividends for taxpayers down the road.

This week has been “tech week” at the White House, and President Trump has jumped onto the rhetorical bandwagon, hailing the glories of innovation. “My administration is embracing a new spirit of innovation that will make life better for all Americans,” he told a group of technology leaders gathered in the Oval Office on Monday; he doubled down Thursday, promising another group of new-economy executives that his government would “help unleash technological breakthroughs that will transform our lives.”

But Trump’s 2018 budget goes the opposite direction: It proposes the deepest cuts in innovation investments that any administration has ever proposed.

Not only does the Trump budget slash climate science and clean energy research beloved by Trump’s critics, it whacks advanced manufacturing programs and fossil energy research catering to Trump’s supporters, as well as basic science and medical research beloved by almost everyone. It’s a powerful rejection of the innovation-industrial complex, and even though Congress is likely to ignore most of it, a similarly powerful reflection of Trump’s political war on Washington elites…”

Our minority-elect Loser-in-Chief’s misadventures begin with a thinly veiled statement about not paying attention to anonymous sources – despite the inept irony of anonymous sources being quoted constantly by corporate media – when it comes to Trump’s obstruction of justice investigation by his ‘Justice’ Department, making corruption a family affair, why Trump’s Cuba policies will fail, more on why our demented delusionist isn’t fit to hold the office he does, Trump admits he’s under investigation – and it’s driving him crazy, leak from inside the White House reveals more insight into our dimwitted dip shit’s impending implosion, why defending Trump’s tenure since being ‘elected’ by a minority based on being clueless, not criminal isn’t going to work, resistance victories against our popular vote losing President are mounting, Trump and his Treasury Department minions want to enable more fraud to destroy everything you’ve worked for, Trump’s lies keep coming and much more.

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…”

The unpopular Trump is shrinking the GOP article from The Washington Post. –
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2017/06/14/the-unpopular-trump-is-shrinking-the-gop/

It’s getting to the point where the GOP is going to pay a huge price for our dimwitted dip shit’s corruption and ignorance:

“President Trump has two problems. First, public disapproval of the president and a lack of confidence in him are skyrocketing. Second, Republicans’ solace that “at least the GOP is with him” may be misguided.

As for the overall numbers, his disapproval rating hit a new high of 60 percent in the Gallup poll. In the latest Politico-Morning Consult poll, 53 percent of voters think former FBI director James B. Comey is very or somewhat honest. By a margin of 45 percent to 32 percent, voters pick Comey over Trump when it comes to honesty. A strong plurality of voters think Trump fired Comey over the Russia investigation, not due to concerns about his performance (47 percent to 36 percent).

By a large majority, voters disfavor his signature bill, the American Health Care Act (which now he concedes is “mean”!). Big tax cuts for the rich, the heart of his tax plan, are unpopular as well. In short, even if Trump could get back to his agenda, it is not going to find favor with the voters.

As for GOP support, let’s keep in mind a few things. First, he’s a minority president who got only 46.1 percent of the vote. He cannot afford to lose voters; he needs to gain support from independents and even Democrats. Second, the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and generic congressional polling show that Democrats have a decisive advantage when it comes to enthusiasm and engagement. Third, we have the Virginia gubernatorial primary results and in a week we will have the results of Georgia’s 6th Congressional District special election to test the proposition that as the GOP becomes the Party of Trump, it becomes less attractive to a mass of voters who have traditionally considered themselves to be Republicans. A shrunken GOP means losses in 2018, the potential for the House to flip to Democratic control and proceed to impeachment, and the emergence of either a primary challenger to Trump, a third-party movement or an enlarged Democratic Party with GOP defectors…”

Trump stopped from firing Mueller after he learned special counsel if friends with Comey: report article from The Raw Story. –

Never mind the fact that the president can’t fire the special counsel – in this case it would be suicide for Trump:

“According to a report in the New York Times, President Donald Trump had already planned to fire Robert Mueller after he learned the special counsel is friends with fired FBI Director James Comey.

The report stated that Trump was angered when he learned of the relationship and made plans to dump Mueller before being convinced it would be a disastrous move.

Sources say Trump that was telling staff, visitors and advisers last week that he felt Mueller had become part of a “witch hunt’ against him and wanted him gone.

Trump reportedly became aware of the longtime relationship between Mueller and Comey after being alerted to reports on Breitbart News and other conservative media outlets…”

Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain put on hold article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/jun/11/donald-trump-state-visit-to-britain-put-on-hold

Seems our Loser-in-Chief is starting to realize how unpopular he really is:

“Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming.

The US president said he did not want to come if there were large-scale protests and his remarks in effect put the visit on hold for some time.

The call was made in recent weeks, according to a Downing Street adviser who was in the room. The statement surprised May, according to those present.

The conversation in part explains why there has been little public discussion about a visit.

May invited Trump to Britain seven days after his inauguration when she became the first foreign leader to visit him in the White House. She told a joint press conference she had extended an invitation from the Queen to Trump and his wife Melania to make a state visit later in the year and was “delighted that the president has accepted that invitation”….”

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…”

https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/06/trumps-solution-to-pesky-congressional-democrats-ignore-them/529050/

It’s actually very simple, Trump is trying to obstruct justice:

“The White House says that under the law, it only has to respond to records requests that come from committee chairmen—who all happen to be Republicans. Democrats say it amounts to a ‘gag order.’

In early 2011, a Republican senator wrote to the Obama administration asking for a response to claims by a whistleblower that firearms lost in a sting operation gone awry had been used in the murder of a federal border patrol agent named Brian Terry.

The GOP was in the minority then, and the senator, Charles Grassley of Iowa, controlled no committee nor had any power to compel the Obama administration to respond. But the Department of Justice replied to him anyway, writing a letter that denied the whistleblower’s claim. The letter turned out to be false, later to be formally retracted by the Justice Department, and the “gun-walking” operation known as Fast and Furious spiraled into a scandal for the Obama administration that led Republicans and more than a dozen Democrats in the House to cite former Attorney General Eric Holder for contempt of Congress.

Under a policy adopted by the Trump administration, the letter that catapulted Fast and Furious from mere headache to political nightmare likely would never have been sent. The White House has told federal departments and agencies that it will adhere to a stricter definition of congressional oversight than did the Obama administration. Government officials are now under no obligation to respond to requests for information and documents that do not come from committee chairmen, who, because of the GOP’s majorities in both chambers of Congress, are all Republicans. That means departments and agencies can essentially ignore requests from Democrats, which they have already done in more than 200 instances over President Trump’s first four months in office, according to a tally kept by party leaders…”

Opinion: American Isolationism From the League of Nations to Trump article from Roll Call. –
http://www.rollcall.com/news/opinion/trump-climate-change-paris

On how our impotent leader’s decision on climate change makes us a rogue nation:

“On November 19, 1919, the Senate failed to muster a two-thirds majority to ratify the Versailles Treaty ending World War I and establishing the League of Nations. As a banner headline in The (New York) Sun shouted, “PEACE TREATY DEFEATED … SECOND BALLOT KILLS ALL HOPE OF LEAGUE.”

The Senate’s refusal to join the League of Nations ushered in two decades of isolationism culminating in an America First movement that argued that Hitler’s takeover of Europe was of no concern to us. At the heart of the America First mindset was a belief that Pittsburgh mattered infinitely more than Nazi-occupied Paris.

Ninety-eight years later, history repeated itself in the White House Rose Garden on a sunny June afternoon with temperatures about six degrees warmer than normal for the entire month. In withdrawing from the Paris accord, Donald Trump even repeatedly invoked the slogan “America First.”

Take a deep breath

With Trump’s decision to go it alone on climate change, America, in effect, became a rogue nation. Since the U.S. has historically pumped more excess CO2 into the atmosphere than any other nation, Trump might as well have passed out red baseball caps emblazoned with the slogan “Make America an Ingrate Again.”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 100

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:

The case for obstruction of justice just became easier to prove – much to our minority-elect president’s chagrin – as another report reveals he asked his Intel Chiefs to public deny his Russia ties – though to their credit they refused, Trump’s approval at lowest its been since Inauguration day, the WAPO and NYT urge resisting impeachment until Trump helps lose the GOP majority in Congress, what Trump’s supporters are wrong about in supporting his firing of Comey, Trump enabling more fraud for his Wall Street friends by killing Dodd-Frank, like her husband, Melania has issues with tweeting fake news and false information, the Trump cabal’s pandemic of lies, more on our National embarrassment’s speech in Saudi Arabia, Trump’s proposed budget gives the finger to those foolish enough to be conned by him, opening the door to more terrorism as U.S. takes Syria’s Al-Qaeda off terror watchlists and lots more.

Telling two Russian visitors that he had taken off the pressure of an FBI investigation – after sharing classified information with them – proves that Trump was obstructing justice.

Holding steady with a 38 percent approval rating isn’t boding well for our illegitimate, minority-elect President.

The two biggest cheerleaders for ridding ourselves of our dimwitted dumb ass in the White House urge restraint until Trump completes blowing the GOP’s majority in both houses of Congress.

Who better to lecture Muslims than Islam expert Donald Trump? article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/21/muslims-islamic-donald-trump-saudis-riyadh

Allowing Trump to lecture anyone on anything is ridiculous, but allowing him to lecture on Islam is a joke:

“If there’s anything consistent about the Trump White House so far, it’s that people get appointed to positions for which they are totally unsuited. More than that: they’re frequently the worst possible candidates for the role. That starts with the president himself, of course – less presidential than your average radio phone-in ranter. It was evident in the appointment of Michael Flynn, a man allegedly in hock to the Russian state, as national security adviser; of multiple Goldman Sachs alumni to oversee financial regulation; and of Jeff Sessions, who regards the film Reefer Madness as accurate social commentary, as the top law-enforcement official in the land.

In the latest example, the Sessions acolyte Stephen Miller, one of the architects of Trump’s attempted Muslim ban, has been put in charge of winning over the Arab Muslim world. Miller was the principal author of a speech, delivered in Riyadh yesterday, in which the president said he wanted to “deliver a message of friendship and hope and love”. He went on to argue that the fight against terrorism was “a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life and … people who want to protect life and their religion”. Trump even shied away from the phrase he blasted Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for avoiding: “radical Islamic terrorism”.

The new approach is at odds with everything we know about Miller’s worldview, and that of his longtime supporter Steve Bannon. (Miller’s college-newspaper screeds about the war on Christmas are an entertaining study in one variety of radicalisation, if you can bear the grandiloquence.)

Almost all of Trump’s pronouncements on the subject stand in stark contrast to his words in Riyadh too (in October last year he condemned the Saudis as women-haters who “push gays … off buildings”. This weekend, he accepted a medal from their king)…”
