Misadventures of a minority-elect President 149

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 Twitter tyrant begins today’s popular vote losing misadventures by declaring that he has full pardon power over himself and his criminal cabal – indicating that he’s guilty as hell, Trump’s growing war crimes in Iraq and Syria are creating a growing number of civilian deaths, our national embarrassment’s new trade and infrastructure deals are giveaways and capitulations to corrupt corporations and Wall Street, obstructing justice while trying to prevent investigations into his illegal activity is causing America’s worst-ever president’s popularity to plummet, more of the many ways our demented delinquent is the gift that keeps on giving, Trump’s irrepressible criminality, some insight into Sinclair Broadcasting – Trump’s soon-to-be addition to his Ministry of Propaganda, Trump’s pity party continues as his inevitable implosion continues playing out on the usual Sunday morning political theater shows and a lot more.

HAS TRUMP FINALLY ENTERED THE DEATH SPIRAL? article from Vanity Fair. –
http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/07/has-donald-trump-finally-entered-the-death-spiral

America’s worst-ever president’s actions – acting less presidential and breaking more rules – indicate that he is guilty and will soon be going down:

“For those who believed that the White House’s main problem was too many adults in the room, the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci is welcome news. Sean Spicer has resigned in protest, with little to show for his time other than sartorial upgrades. In brief, a role that normally goes to people with decades of experience in communications and government will go to a neophyte from Wall Street whose main qualification seems to be that he’s loyal to Donald Trump on cable TV and high-energy. As Scaramucci once told New York Magazine, “My middle name could be Shit-stirrer, except then my initials on my shirt would be A.S.S., and I can’t have that.” The phrase “death spiral” is starting to come to mind.

To be sure, you could argue that we’ve been here before. When Steve Bannon took over Trump’s campaign, conservative radio host Charlie Sykes compared it to entering a hospice phase with Trump wishing his campaign to die surrounded by loved ones. And we know how that turned out. So you could say that Trump is nothing but surprises. But Trump is also highly predictable. He promised repeatedly during the campaign that he could be presidential. But by early 2016 it was clear that he couldn’t, that no change would ever come. Chaos was going to be the norm. The question was always whether that chaos was controlled or not. More and more, “not” looks like the answer. Increasingly, Trump looks like Slim Pickens riding down with the missile, on the cusp of the final, sudden acceleration.

Trump appears to trust none of his staffers at this point, apart from close family, and that family gives dubious advice. Recall that son-in-law Jared Kushner was among those pressing for Trump to fire James Comey, while Bannon was among those counseling restraint. Following Kushner’s advice led Trump right into a prolonged date with Robert Mueller. This time, opposing the decision to hire Scaramucci were Spicer, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, and Bannon. Supporting it was, yes, Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and—according to reports—Hope Hicks.

If Trump insists on disregarding sound advice from his staffers in favor of dumb advice from family, his decisions will get worse, not that they were great to begin with, and more and more people will leave the White House only to be replaced by less competent hires. While the lure of the White House is huge and someone will always say yes to a job there, the quality of newcomers is going to plummet. People see how poorly Trump treats his hires. (This wasn’t so clear back when Trump was in the private sector, and employees had to sign onerous non-disclosure agreements.) When they displease him, he lets it be known in public. This week, he even told The New York Times that he regretted making Jeff Sessions attorney general…”

Trump went nuts when reports of his sharing intelligence with his Russian visitors came out, demanding loyalty while giving it to none is causing issues in our illegitimate, minority-elect President’s White House, Trump is dangerously incompetent, Trump’s Russia scandal keeps growing, the cost of Trump’s ignorance is going to get expensive, Trump’s fraudulent voter-fraud commission, dubious double standards from Trump on leaking sensitive information, ardent supporters growing disillusioned with our lackluster Liar-in-Chief, still being protected by his brown shirts in the U.S. Congress, some of the many reasons we got what we deserved with Trump, it appears that Trump did ask Comey to halt his investigation into Flynn, it’s sad when your aides say you’re too stupid to cause any harm because you don’t know what you’re leaking, more voters support Trump Impeachment than oppose it, if Trump were CEO he’d probably be fired and a lot more.

The Terrible Cost of Trump’s Disclosures article from The Atlantic. –
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2017/05/the-terrible-cost-of-trumps-disclosures/526818/

The cost of Trump’s profoundly ignorant corruption is worse, and it’s going to get expensive:

“The consequences of the president’s reported divulgence of top-secret codeword information to the Russians are only beginning.

If The Washington Post is right, President Trump divulged highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador at a jovial meeting in the Oval Office. Here is why this is appalling, beyond even this president’s usual standard.

Top secret codeword information is no joke

There are multiple flavors of intelligence classification, from “Confidential” (which is often in the public record already, just not acknowledged), to “Secret” (usually, though not always available if you know where to look—or are willing to wait a few days), to “Top Secret” which is beginning to be serious. The codewords, which security officials began using in World War II to protect signal intercepts (e.g. ULTRA), tell you whence the information was derived—so Top Secret/codeword material really has to be protected. Any of us who have had those kinds of clearances have gone through repeated trainings about how to safeguard such material (cover sheets, multiple envelopes, proper paragraph marking, etc.). And if you hope to keep your job and stay out of jail, you take it seriously. You do not have access to any and all compartments if you have a top-secret clearance. This, apparently, is some of the information that Trump blew…”

Trail of Broken Promises: Donald Trump’s Lengthening List of Empty Lies and Idle Boasts article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/trumps-empty-lies-and-idle-boasts

“He was going to investigate voter fraud, end crime in Chicago and crush ISIS. Oh yeah—there was also health care.

The pattern Donald Trump follows in making promises has been clear since he first rode that gilded escalator in Trump Tower to his presidential campaign announcement nearly two years ago. It goes something like this:

1. Assert something untrue based on a canard oozing from the right-wing fever swamps that you heard repeated on some Fox News show or other. (For example: “Obamacare is collapsing.” Or “Afghanistan is safer than our inner cities.”)

2. Spit out a half-formed solution that you seem not to have thought about or have given no thought to until just that moment.

3. Try to implement policy based on this idea, only to see it get slapped down by courts, legislators and objective reality…”
