Misadventures of a minority-elect President 66

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:

Our lackluster leader hiring officials that worked for appointed President George W. Bush – since it worked so well the first time, considering making a deal to appoint another corrupt, alt-right wing U.S. Supreme Court ‘Justice,’ Trump’s deep links to organized crime, the list of lies from our Liar-in-Chief keeps growing, trying to blame his predecessor for his profoundly corrupt ignorance, why Trump is vulnerable to impeachment, our wannabe dictator celebrates Turkey’s dictator, Trump’s do-nothing presidency, Trump’s Obama-bashing hypocrisy, making more baseless promises he won’t be able to keep, emoluments clause violations could haunt our minority-elect President, more on the dipshittery over Trump’s tax returns, refusing to disclose information while shrouding everything in secrecy raises red flags over his treachery and deceptions, Georgia election GOP upset could be the start of something big, the anti-Trump resistance is growing, Ivanka’s corruption and ethics issues reveal she truly is a daddy’s girl, shutting down American-style authoritarianism, despite his constant bashing – and badmouthing – Trump and Obama have a lot in common, the real cost of Trump’s ‘fake news’ accusations and lots more.

Trump Has Deep Links to Organized Crime: Federal Investigators Know It and the Public Is Catching Up article from AlterNet. –

“As Trump built his empire, he attracted a criminal element whose ties still bind.

As President Trump discovers the prerogative of unilaterally making war, the media gaze has turned away from the ongoing FBI, House and Senate investigation of his Russia ties to the simpler dramas of cruise missiles, big bombs and tough but loose talk on North Korea.

Yet even the “mother of all bombs” cannot obliterate the accumulating body of evidence about his relationship with Russian organized crime figures and the not unrelated question about whether he and his entourage colluded with Russian officials in the 2016 presidential election. The story, notes Talking Points Memo’s Josh Marshall, is “Hiding in plain sight.”

The evidence of pre-election collusion between Trump and the Russians, while growing, is far from definitive. The evidence on Trump’s organized crime ties is stronger. Says Marshall:

“If we’d never heard about Russian intelligence hacking of the 2016 election or Carter Page or Paul Manafort or Sergei Kislyak this [Trump’s organized crime connections] would seem like an extraordinarily big deal. And indeed it is an extraordinarily big deal.”…”

More on what appears to have been a staged chemical weapons attack in Syria despite Trump’s duplicitous claims that it was done by the Syrian government, Trump’s popularity hits another new historic low as his ethics issues continue growing exponentially, blaming Trump’s profound failures on Steve Bannon, increasing his unethical, morally challenged cesspool of corruption known as his swamp, majority believe our Liar-in-Chief never keeps his promises, more on Trump’s War Crimes and campaign fraud, one of Trump’s chief propagandists admits that he’s a fake, 120,000 protesters turn out to demand Trump’s taxes, looking past the moronic bluster and profoundly corrupt idiocies of Trump and his illegitimate administration reveals his necessity for dubious secrecy, the convenience of Trump’s disappearing Russia scandal and much more.

“President Trump rose to power on a combination of meanness, incoherence and falsehoods. His strategy depended almost entirely on playing off the unpopularity and weaknesses of others.

Every aspect of his approach has blown up on him since he took office, but as is always the case with Trump, he will not take any personal responsibility for what’s going wrong. He must find a scapegoat. The latest object of his opprobrium would seem to be Steve Bannon, the chief White House strategist.

But dumping Bannon would only underscore the extent to which Trump is a political weathervane, gyrating wildly with the political winds. He’s “populist” one day, conventionally conservative the next, and centrist the day after that. His implicit response is: Who cares? Let’s just get through another week…”

Preparing for the first shocks of Trump’s exploitation of disaster capitalism, our minority-elect President’s delusional dipshittery is proving profitable for Dems, no one has any idea what Trump’s policies are – including Trump, more reports of Trump campaign fraud, sure signs your President is about to launch a nuclear war, ramping up the rhetoric and escalating tensions with North Korea, protesters massing to demand Trump release his tax returns, the demands of a wannabe Dictator when he visits the UK, financial implosion begins as Trump shows his true colors, Trump’s Syrian gas attack fairy tale is falling apart, watching Trump’s endgame with the dangerous out-of-control security state we’ve created to enable endless wars, reality sinks in as Trump turns Clintonian, America has a real problem when its media praises Trump’s Idiocracy instead of calling him out for his war crimes and much more.

Trump Effect: Dems Shatter Fundraising Records article from NBC News. –


“WELCOME TO THE Age of Trump, where no one has any idea what the policies of the President of the United States are, including the President of the United States.

There has never before been a U.S. president whose stated goals were as simultaneously vague, preposterous, and contradictory.

Nor has there ever been a president who has intermittently taken strong stances that were so directly at odds with his own party’s most fervent dogma and his own appointees.

Nor has there been a president who was as completely uninterested in the basics of politics. It’s as though America is playing in the World Series with a manager who truly doesn’t care about baseball.

What this adds up to is that there’s not a single person who knows exactly what the Trump administration is going to try to do. No one could be surprised if Trump suddenly announced that he wants NASA to send a team to colonize Neptune; that he’s going to lead the team; and that he’s signed a deal with China to personally make $3 billion for the reality show syndication rights…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 46

Reince Priebus plays a starring role in taking the blame for Trump’s ineptitude, answers as to why Trump panics about the probe into his Russia scandal – part of which involving his son-in-law is unraveling, Trump may have screwed himself on getting support from Democrats in Congress, Trump’s EPA could end up greenlighting chemicals that damage humans – especially children, why Trump may not be able to defund sanctuary cities resisting his pernicious Muslim Ban, Trump’s stealth war of retaliation against sanctuary cities, incessant insecurity and infighting in Trump’s White House continues growing, flip-flopping – in typical fraudulent Trump fashion – on getting Obamacare replaced, Trump and the U.S. budget are unable to keep up with his promises, destroying President Obama’s climate plan and the environment might not be as easy as Trump thinks, Trump’s approval rating sinks to new low twice in one week, the pernicious egregiousness of Trump’s executive order on destroying the environment and climate, the existential threat posed by Trump’s treasonous White House, GOP still covering up Trump’s crimes and Russia scandal, GOP still hiding Trump’s tax returns – for the third time, getting more organized to resist and deal with the trauma that Trump is, Trump’s ignorance extends to foreign affairs – which is a big problem and more.

Now we know why Trump panicked about Russia probe article from the Chicago Tribune. –

“You know things are looking grim for President Donald Trump when he starts tweeting about Hillary Clinton again. Monday evening he sounded trapped and wounded: “Why isn’t the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia, Russian speech.”

Well, perhaps it is because she is not president, did not hold back her tax returns, did not constantly cheer for Vladimir Putin, did not hire a host of pro-Putin flunkies and did not have aides who lied about contact with Russian officials.

Trump’s tweet certainly appears to be an attempt to deflect attention and to shift discussion away from the newest revelation about the Trump Russia scandal. The Post reports:

“The Trump administration sought to block former acting attorney general Sally Yates from testifying to Congress in the House investigation of links between Russian officials and Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, The Washington Post has learned, a position that is likely to further anger Democrats who have accused Republicans of trying to damage the inquiry…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President 15

Congress needs to review Trump’s tax returns to see who owns him, conjecture that Hitler’s offspring’s ‘Justice’ department, aided by Trump’s brown shirts in the GOP-led US Congress will bury all inquiries into Trump’s ties to Russia, declining the White House correspondents dinner, unpopular minority-elect President to address nation, Conservatives drinking Trump kool-aid, town halls lead Trump resistance, more fake FOX ‘News’ to push Trump’s Muslim ban, more on a fraudulent filmsters attempts to fuel Trump’s media war charades, the art of the Trumpaclysm, watching FOX ‘News’ can help you predict Trump’s next ignorant Tweet, Spicer’s potential violation of the Federal Records Act, Trump’s presidency is rotting Americans’ brains and more.

Trump to address nation sandbagged by record low approval rating: NBC/WSJ poll article from CNBC. –

“President Donald Trump will address the nation on Tuesday night saddled with the lowest approval ratings of any new chief executive in modern American history, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal Poll shows.

Just 44 percent of Americans approve of Mr. Trump’s performance as president, while 48 percent disapprove, according to the survey. Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush all had significantly positive net approval ratings at the outset of their terms.

A 52 percent majority calls early challenges the Trump White House has faced unique to his administration and an indication of real problems. Some 43 percent call them typical growing pains for new presidents.

These results signal difficulty for the president in his attempt to use his address to a joint session of Congress to broaden support for his policy agenda. Republicans hold enough seats in the House and Senate to answer his call for repealing and replacing Obamacare and overhauling the tax system without help from Democrats. But they have no consensus on either subject so far and little margin for error…”
