Misadventures of a minority-elect President 75

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:

Pondering over whether or not we’re willing to let Trump evolve – though judging from what we’ve seen so far he should have been removed long ago, more on Trump’s disingenuous tax cut scam, Trump’s chaotic presidency as seen through all his ignorant Twitter rants, Trump’s first 100 days show that despite his best efforts, we’re not in Nazi Germany, more on Trump’s ongoing use of False Flags to justify committing war crimes, Trump’s race against the clock to actually do something relevant, Trump team resorts to theatrics because they’re too corrupt and ignorant to actually govern, more on Trump’s tax cut scam that helps him and his family and his flip flop on NAFTA, Trump still lying about job creation and jobs going overseas, every day seems to present ethical challenges for our illegitimate minority-elect President, the dubious list of Trump’s accomplishments in his first 100 days is quite revealing – as is his aversion to transparency, the education of Donald Trump, White House continues its Obama Derangement Syndrome, more on Trump’s objectively pernicious first 100 days and much more.

Donald Trump’s first 100 days were a stress test for democracy article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/27/trumps-first-100-days-stress-test-for-democracy

Despite Trump’s best efforts, we’re not in Nazi Germany:

“We’ve learned a crucial lesson in the past few months: our democracy is not as easily ‘deconstructed’ as Steve Bannon might have hoped

We have learned one crucial lesson since January 20 – we are not Germany in 1933. I shared the fear that Trump represented an existential threat to American democracy. I am not convinced those fears have been entirely allayed. But the first hundred days of the Trump presidency have demonstrated that American institutions and traditions of democratic constitutionalism are not as easily “deconstructed” as Steve Bannon might have hope.

We should be proud of the resistance shown by our civil society. Ordinary citizens have taken to the streets in record numbers; we have confronted our representatives in town-hall meetings; we have flooded members of Congress with letters and emails; we have organized ourselves into groups such as Daily Action, mobilizing the energies of millions unwilling to quietly acquiesce in the destruction of American democracy.

In one weekend, the ACLU received more online contributions than it typically receives in six years. Art supply stores are enjoying gravy days, as Americans race to purchase poster boards and magic markers, the low-tech tools of peaceful protest…”

Fact-check: The White House’s claims about Trump’s first 100 Days article from Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/fact-check-white-houses-claims-trumps-first-100-days-132313392.html

Unsurprisingly, the White House is desperately trying to make our moronic Liar-in-Chief look good:

“As we approach the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency, the White House is attempting to thread a needle. The president himself called them a “ridiculous standard” — an opinion shared by some historians — but his administration also wants to show that it’s proud of what they’ve accomplished thus far.

The roll out of accolade documentation has been a little rocky.

A statement from the White House distributed Tuesday said that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had only signed nine executive orders in his first 100 days in office. As history professor Peter A. Shulman pointed out on Twitter, the actual number is 99. The White House appears to have pulled the number from the American Presidency Project, which lists just some of Roosevelt’s major signings. When the mistake was pointed out to the administration, the White House said Trump still had signed the most executive orders since Roosevelt.

There was also a discrepancy between the number of executive orders credited to Harry S. Truman. Truman signed 57 executive orders in the 100 days following Roosevelt’s death in 1945, but only 25 — the number used by the White House — at the beginning of his term following the 1948 election.

The heavy reliance on executive orders instead of signing congressional legislation goes against a critique of Trump the candidate…”

“A feisty, creative civic spirit is igniting activists in nearly every zip code.

A majority of the public almost always blesses new presidents with a honeymoon gift. In a gesture of patriotic fairness, even people who voted against the incoming chief say, Okay, we’ll give you a chance. We’re hoping you’ll be better than we thought.

This grace period usually lasts a while before the public starts to sour. As New York Times columnist Charles Blow noted, our last five presidents enjoyed lengthy periods in office before a majority of Americans registered disapproval:

* Ronald Reagan–2 years
* George W. Bush–3 years, 3 months
* George H. W. Bush–3 years, 1 month
* Barack Obama–1 year, 3 months
* Bill Clinton–1 year, 7 months

Enter The Donald, whose policies, personality, moral principles, and assorted psychoses have rocketed him through the shortest honeymoon ever. His performance achieved majority disapproval in… just 8 days!…”

“As President Trump approaches 100 days in office, Adam Gabbatt surveys the resistance movement’s biggest moments so far, key groups, and challenges ahead

It’s not just by chance that Donald Trump’s first 100 days have been so underwhelming. The president’s failure to pass healthcare reform, to ban people from entering the country, and arguably to achieve anything of note (beyond his supreme court justice) is down, in no small part, to the efforts of hundreds of thousands of people across the country.

Activists have pressured their representatives, held mass demonstrations and scrambled to protect those at risk in a rollercoaster few months. Trump has until January 2021 to turn things around, but there seems little sign of the resistance fading away…”

“WASHINGTON — Think President Trump’s first 100 days were bumpy? Just wait for the 1,361 to follow.

It’s no surprise that Trump, who has been shattering political precedent since he announced his candidacy and then won the White House, would continue to break new ground once he moved into the Oval Office — though not always in a good way.

The courts have blocked his signature immigration ban. Congress has balked at delivering on his promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act. The FBI is investigating Russian meddling in the election, an issue that forced the resignation of his national security adviser and is likely to cast a shadow over the administration for months or more. The public gives him record-low approval ratings for a new president.

Braced for bad reviews when Trump reaches the unofficial milestone Saturday, the White House has been pushing back on the idea that his first 100 days have been a bust…”

DONALD TRUMP’S LATEST APPROVAL RATINGS IN ELECTION SWING STATES SHOW HOW UNPOPULAR HE REALLY IS article from Newsweek. –
http://www.newsweek.com/donald-trumps-latest-approval-ratings-election-swing-states-588108

“It’s no secret President Donald Trump’s approval rating on the national level has been relatively low his entire tenure in the White House. But polls show he’s also struggling to garner support in the swing states that won him the 2016 presidential election over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Roughly 41.9 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s job performance, compared with 52.3 percent who disapprove, according to the FiveThirtyEight aggregate of polls. Polls from swing states similarly show Trump’s approval rating under water, making him the least popular newly elected president in decades.

A March survey of Wisconsin found 41 percent of registered voters approved of his job performance while 47 percent disapproved. A February poll conducted by Franklin & Marshall College found just 32 percent of voters in Pennsylvania approved of Trump’s job performance. An EPIC MRA survey the same month pegged his support in Michigan at 40 percent, with 54 percent disapproving. In Ohio, a March Baldwin Wallace University poll found 49 percent of the state viewed the president unfavorably, while 46 percent viewed him favorably.

And it goes on. In North Carolina, which Trump won narrowly, his approval rating stood at just 36 percent earlier this month, according to a High Point University poll. Fifty-four percent disapproved. In Florida, a large, key state that helped hand Trump the win, his approval stood at just 34 percent with two-thirds of the state disapproving, according to a February survey by Florida Atlantic University. A poll later in February by Associated Industries of Florida did find that 81 percent of Republicans approved of Trump’s job performance…”

Why Trumpian Conspiracy Theories and Anti-Semitism Are Intimately Connected article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/right-wing/why-trumpian-conspiracy-theories-and-anti-semitism-are-intimately-connected

“Our modern political climate has helped bolster the oldest conspiracy theory of all.

Earlier this month, white nationalists found cause to rejoice. The culprit behind many of the bomb threats plaguing JCCs and Jewish schools around the country?—?a young American-Israeli man living in Ashkelon, in the south of Israel?—?was arrested. The teenager, apparently utilizing sophisticated identity-masking methods, was responsible for a yet-unknown but apparently large proportion of the bomb threats terrorizing toddlers, schoolchildren, and Jews at prayer, according to Israeli police.

For white nationalists like David Duke, the suspect’s religion was proof of a theory they had championed: that Jews, in a coordinated plot, had created the attacks to “get sympathy to push their ethnic agenda.” A popular meme, “Hey rabbi…watcha doin’?,” resurfaced: It depicts a hook-nosed Jewish stereotype spray-painting a swastika onto the wall of a synagogue. Reactions to the unlikely arrest further proved the durability, in a conspiratorial age, of the oldest conspiracy theory of all: anti-Semitism…”

Trump is president. That’s reason enough not to go to war with North Korea article from The Guardian. –
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/20/trump-president-reason-not-go-war-north-korea

“Famous quotes sometimes become clichés that insult one’s intelligence. Consider, for example, the oft-cited phrase “Know your enemy, and know yourself,” from the 5th century BCE Chinese general Sunzi. How can ignorance about one’s own ability and capabilities, and the enemy’s, be anything but harmful?

Fast forward 2,500 years, to an April 17 interview on Fox, when US President Donald Trump twice referenced “this gentleman” in North Korea, who “outplayed” Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama – to explain that he, Trump, would not be fooled. The problem, however, is Trump didn’t seem to understand that the “gentleman” Kim Jong Il, who frustrated Trump predecessors, died in December 2011, and therefore no longer rules North Korea.

After weeks of provocative language from Pyongyang and Washington, the two sides are dangerously close to conflict – and Trump doesn’t seem to understand who leads the country he might attack.

Managing North Korea has been an almost uniquely difficult problem for US presidents. And the three generations of Kims who have ruled the nation since its founding in 1948 – Kim Il Sung, Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un – have shown an almost unique willingness to endanger and sacrifice the lives of North Korea’s people for their own enrichment and security, weakening American-led effects to sanction and isolate the country…”

Trump pushes reactionary ‘Buy American, Hire American’ plan article from The World Socialist Web Site. –
http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2017/04/19/visa-a19.html

“President Trump signed an executive order Tuesday making it more difficult for skilled workers from other countries to obtain temporary work visas in the US. The order also called for a review of trade deals to enforce “Buy American” clauses and mandated government agencies to use American-made steel and other goods in federally funded projects and contracts.

The measures, Trump said, were part of his “Buy American, Hire American” policy, which would “send a powerful signal to the world: We’re going to defend our workers, protect our jobs, and finally put America first.”

Trump’s program of economic nationalism, along with his savage witch-hunting of immigrant workers, is the domestic counterpart to the administration’s ever more violent military provocations around the world. With the support of the trade union bureaucracy, Trump is peddling the lie that foreign workers and “unfair trade deals” with China, Mexico and other countries, not the relentless pursuit of profit by the American ruling class, are the causes for chronic unemployment and stagnant wages.

Aware that American workers are already tired of endless wars and their financial and human cost, the Trump administration is trying to divert social anger outward even as its program of expanding militarism, corporate tax cuts, deregulation and social spending cuts imposes greater hardships and inevitably provokes working class opposition…”
