You "ain't seen nuthin yet" wait until your $400 item from in Sears (made in China) comes back to the USA to be made. What do you think happens to the low prices. Smart Liberals figured this prospective out a long time ago. whistle

Thanks for confirming my premise, now if you will, we'll give you another stab at the fact the an American worker makes $15.00 an hours, the same employee in say, Asia make approximately $.40 an hour. If said product is be profitable, who makes up the $14.60 difference? crazy
Somehow it's laughable that this concept of moving manufacturing overseas is somehow new to you and attempting to bring it back will be easier said than done.

I can show you a graph where either the consumer will pay a higher price or the manufacture will absorb the profit normally realized. Bottom line, any thing more would be your MO of going in a vicious circle of nothingness. wink

Trump is totally clueless and most Americans know it.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/americans-lack-confidence-in-trump_us_586a8081e4b0de3a08f91111

Less than half of Americans are confident that President-elect Donald Trump can handle several presidential duties, a new Gallup poll finds.

With less than three weeks before Trump takes the oath of office, only 46 percent of Americans are optimistic in his ability to handle an international crisis. Forty-seven percent say they are confident he can use military force wisely and just 44 percent believe Trump can prevent major scandals in his administration.

On the other hand, the poll did show that 60 percent of Americans are confident in Trump’s ability to effectively work with Congress. A little more than half (55 percent) think he will be able to defend U.S. interests abroad.

Compared to the last three U.S. presidents when they took office, Trump polls far lower in Americans’ confidence levels. At least 7 in 10 Americans were confident in key issues before Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton entered the White House.

Although Trump’s favorability has risen since the election, he still has the lowest favorability rating of any president-elect.

When Trump takes office on Jan. 20, the ongoing issues he’ll have to face include the fight against ISIS, Europe’s migrant crisis and Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Far from it.

http://heavy.com/news/2016/12/how-does-t...ons-lead-close/

The Electoral College vote is on Monday, and President-Elect Donald Trump’s lead might be greater than you think. It’s nowhere near as close as George W. Bush and Al Gore in 2000, even though it’s far closer than many other elections. Trump has earned 306 electoral votes to Hillary Clinton’s 232. That means that Trump has 56.9 percent of the electoral college vote. But although a sizable lead, it doesn’t count as a landslide. For comparison, Ronald Reagan in 1984 had 97.6 percent of the Electoral College vote.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/21/politics/donald-trump-hillary-clinton-popular-vote-final-count/

(CNN)More Americans voted for Hillary Clinton than any other losing presidential candidate in US history. The Democrat outpaced President-elect Donald Trump by almost 2.9 million votes, with 65,844,954 (48.2%) to his 62,979,879 (46.1%), according to revised and certified final election results from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

The about-face is significant because it is a strong signal, if one were needed, that public opinion still matters. Despite losing the popular vote for the White House and getting fewer overall votes for Senate seats than Democratic candidates, Republicans are on the verge of controlling all three branches of government, and have telegraphed their intention to ram through the most aggressive agenda possible. Tuesday’s faceplant suggests less may be possible than Republicans think.

It’s also important because the presidential election was characterized by a series of moments that defied political history. Remarks by Trump, whether public or privately recorded, that would have ruined any other candidate ran off his back ― or, in some cases, even gave him a boost. The disorienting campaign has led to speculation that nothing is the same in American politics. Tuesday showed that public opinion still matters.

Overreach is a common mistake made by new majorities, and one that has sunk presidents before.

8 Ways Trump’s Already Made America Great Again
Liz Crokin

After President-elect Donald Trump’s historic election victory, he’s bypassed popping champagne bottles to celebrate and gone straight to work. Although he doesn’t officially become President until he’s sworn in on his Jan. 20 Inauguration Day, here’s eight ways Trump has already made America greater.

Jobs: Last June President Barack Obama told a Carrier employee at a town hall meeting that there was nothing that could be done about the trend of jobs leaving America. He then mocked Trump for stating on the campaign trail that if he were elected and Carrier moved jobs to Mexico, he’d impose taxes on all the products that were sold in the U.S. “He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, how – what – how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have? And usually, the answer is he doesn’t have an answer,” Obama said. Well, apparently Trump does have an answer and a magic wand called a phone. Less than a month after Trump’s election win, Carrier tweeted that they reached a deal with the President-elect to keep close to 1,000 jobs in Indiana. Trump also motivated Ford to scrap their plans for a $1.6 billion plant planned for Mexico and instead will invest $700 million in a Michigan assembly plant creating 700 new jobs. “This is a vote of confidence for President-elect Trump and some of the policies he may be pursuing,” Ford CEO Mark Fields said. After a private meeting with Trump on Dec. 6, SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son, who controls OneWeb and Sprint Corp., said he will invest $50 billion in the U.S. and create 50,000 new jobs. Trump has repeatedly touted: “My administration will follow two simple rules: buy American and hire American!” He doesn’t have the keys to the White House yet but he’s already putting his money where his mouth is.

Economy: Trump’s win has brought the stock market up to new records and increased consumer confidence. In December, consumer confidence climbed to the highest level since August 2001, according to Bloomberg. Additionally, holiday spending was over a trillion dollars in 2016, an 8% increase from 2015.

Ethics: On the campaign trail Trump promised he’d “drain the swamp”. He’s already halting government corruption and waste simply by tweeting. On Dec. 6, Trump tweeted that Boeing’s $4 billion price tag for the new fleet of Air Force One planes were “out of control”. However, after the company’s CEO Dennis Muilenburg met with Trump on Dec. 21, he told the press that Boeing would build a new Air Force One fleet for less than $4 billion. “We’re going to get it done for less than that, and we’re committed to working together to make sure that happens,” Muilenburg said. Last week House Republicans voted to eliminate an independent ethics body. However, after Trump fired off critical tweets about the move and their priorities, the Republicans pulled the plan.

Crime: Crime has skyrocketed so high in Chicago that the murder rate has gone up 58% since 2015, the highest it’s been since 1997. More people have been murdered in the Windy City than the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, and there were more homicides in Chicago in 2016 than LA and NYC combined. As Obama, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and other Chicago politicians continue to ignore the problem, Trump has addressed the problem on multiple occasions, and he’s already suggested that Chicago needs assistance from the federal government if the problem can’t be resolved at the local level. On Jan. 2 he tweeted: “Chicago murder rate is record setting – 4,331 shooting victims with 762 murders in 2016. If Mayor can’t do it he must ask for Federal help.”

PC culture: Christmas felt a little more special this year thanks to Trump. Trump campaigned that “we will say Merry Christmas” again. Sure enough, during his Thank You Tour he spoke from a podium with a sign that read “Merry Christmas” attached to it and surrounded by Christmas trees. I can’t tell you how many people said to me this holiday season “we can finally say Merry Christmas again!” Trump is already throwing political correctness in the garbage where it belongs and the country is following his lead.

Women: Despite what the left wants you to believe, Trump has continued to elevate women to high-level positions in his administration just as he did at his Trump Organization. He’s filling White House positions with power women who were pivotal to his campaign such as Hope Hicks, Katrina Pierson and Omarosa Manigault. Most notably, Trump put KellyAnne Conway in charge of his campaign, and she became the first woman to run a victorious presidential campaign. Now she’ll serve Trump in the White House as counselor to the president.

Military: Trump is already bringing back long overdue morale to the U.S. military. The soldiers went wild cheering Trump when he attended the Army-Navy game on Dec. 10. Contrast that footage with the photos of the rows of empty seats as the backdrop of Obama’s farewell speech to the military on Jan. 4.

Israel: While the Obama Administration has stabbed Israel in the back by allowing an anti-Israel resolution against settlements to pass, Trump has criticized the UN and vowed to stand up for Israel. Within 24 hours of Trump’s presidential win, he invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with him in the U.S. at his earliest convenience. Netanyahu has called Trump a “true friend of Israel”.

On a personal note, the day after the election several of my friends called me to complain about the disgusting things people were writing on their social media pages about Trump. I was baffled because I didn’t see that kind of outrageous negativity in my feeds. I realized that after I had expressed my support for Trump on social media several months prior, people who were intolerant of my political beliefs defriended me, and I defriended anyone who came to my pages and bullied me because of my support for Trump. By Election Day, the swamp had been drained of toxic people in my life. And that’s how Trump made my America great again before he was even elected President.

Can I laugh now? Every citation you've mention was effected by anything but trump. I see that Trump espouse his win to a auto maker announcing a plans to build 2 formerly made models here in America. The CEO rudely corrected him by stating that their decision was based on a prior 4 year plan which, guess what? Obama can take credit for that action seeing that he just started his 2nd term when the decision was made. Now to Trump's credit, racism is at an all time high, hate crime have risen exponentially and we will see the most erratic president elect come into office on January 20th...if he makes it until that day. wink

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 01/10/17 07:05 AM

The Golden Globes Are Why Donald Trump Is Not Going Anywhere

Meryl Streep’s Golden Globe Speech is the perfect example of how Hollywood doesn’t understand America.

Last night, the Hollywood Foreign Press Association gathered to give awards to people in Hollywood in front of other people from Hollywood — and it was the perfect example of the kind of self-serving ego-stroking trash that is going to keep these wannabe political activists from ever having any influence over anyone outside of their bubble.
First of all, there’s the fact that La La Land – a movie about Hollywood — won more Golden Globes than any other movie in the history of the Golden Globes. Sure, it was probably a good movie (I wouldn’t know, I watch only the news, true-crime TV, and ’90s Adam Sandler movies) but the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was apparently more enchanted with a movie about themselves than any other film ever is a story almost too perfect to write.
And then there was Meryl Streep’s speech — and I’m not just talking about her Donald Trump comments, either. Yes, those comments certainly played a role in pissing people off, and I will get to them later, but focusing on those alone would ignore just how terribly self-indulgent and ignorant so much of the rest of it was.
Streep actually had the nerve and naiveté to begin her speech by whining about how Hollywood is one of “the most vilified segments in American society right now” — all while wearing a gown that probably costs more than all of the clothing in an average American’s closet combined. I’m not saying that it’s impossible to be rich and miserable; what I am saying is if I am ever worth tens of millions of dollars and I still use my time in a public speech to complain about how victimized I am, please do me a favor and punch me in the face. People may be mean to you on the Internet, and that may be a bummer, but I can assure you that no one waking up at 5 a.m. to shovel coal from a mine or facing a day full of soul-crushing number-crunching interrupted only by a 20-minute break to eat a turkey sandwich on bread that may not even be organic wants to hear it. Streep said that people should be grateful for the Hollywood elite because without them they’d “have nothing to watch but football and mixed martial arts” — because apparently she’s too trapped in her bubble to realize that those are both things that many people very much enjoy.
Throughout the speech, Streep kept insisting that the actors gathered at the Golden Globes represented nothing more than a collection of various regular people from various regular places — “I was born and raised and educated in the public schools of New Jersey,” she bragged — but the fact is, just because you start out as a “regular person” doesn’t mean that you’ll stay that way forever.
Regardless of who these “Hollywood elites” were before they became rich and famous, the truth is that they have since become people who were too isolated to consider that Donald Trump had any chance of winning the election, and who are still too isolated understand that they’re going to have to accept the fact that he did. Yes, the job of an actor may be, as Streep noted, “to enter the lives of people who are different,” but that doesn’t change the fact that when it’s time to give out awards, the film that they connect to the most is still the one about the glitzy lives they’re living now. It doesn’t change the fact that, instead of trying to connect with Trump voters to try and understand why they did what they did, they’d rather just write them off as garbage people and continue to make comments slamming them any chance they get.
Sure, some people may be calling Streep’s comments on Donald Trump “brave” — but those are the exact same people who already agreed with her anyway. Hollywood does not need to win over those people. They’ve been won, and continuing to mock the other side over things that happened more than a year ago is only going to ensure that their side will continue to lose.
I was no supporter of Donald Trump during the election. In fact, like Streep, I consider many of his comments and actions to be disgusting, including the one that she referenced last night. But the truth is, that incident with the reporter happened in 2015 . . . and he won anyway. Bringing it up isn’t going to change anyone’s mind about Trump, because the people who voted for him voted for him despite having known about it — and there were enough of those people to win him the White House. Her speech is not going to help her cause; it only encouraged the Trump voters who did not listen to Hollywood during the election to continue to not listen to Hollywood. If people like Streep are really concerned about the direction of our country, and if they really do want to change it, then they need to make earnest attempts to connect with the people they disagree with instead of going on self-serving, elitist rants in a country that’s full of people who do like things like MMA.

Trump's apologists oozing with typically lame deflections.

"Deny it." whistle

Former Trump campaign manager and incoming White House counselor Kellyanne Conway offered a very specific suggestion for Meryl Streep during a CNN appearance.

Conway told CNN's Chris Cuomo she thinks it's "great" that Streep wants to give a platform about the disabled.

"But seriously speaking, why didn't she use that platform to talk about the mentally challenged boy that was tortured on live streaming Facebook, by four young African-American adults in Chicago?" Conway asked Cuomo.

"Because one was done by a bunch of miscreants, the other was done by the President-elect of the United States," Cuomo shot back.

Conway disagreed.

"You're really going to equate the two?" she asked, though she was the one who brought up both scenarios.

But Cuomo wouldn't budge.

"One of them was a crime. There's no controversy over that," he said of the Chicago teens charged with the hate crime. "We know who did it, they don't deny doing it, if they do, it doesn't matter."

Cuomo also explained that the entire controversy over Trump mocking disabled reporter Serge Kovaleski could have been avoided had the President-elect simply apologized.

"He can [deny] it a million [times]," Cuomo told Conway. "Look at the video."

Personally, I don't like Trump but, if he does something right, you have to give him credit. Let's hope those jobs are good paying jobs.

Here is something else he's working on. This is going to be the biggest sh_t storm as Big Pharma and MSM try to squash this.

Robert Kennedy Jr. says he will chair "vaccination safety" committee for Trump

So far, everything the Democrats have done to Mr. Trump, has backfired, blown up in their faces, or just plain fizzled out.

And next up, President-Elect Trump's Inauguration Day Protests, January 20, 2017 Washington DC, please don't miss it.

I heard, buses from Ithaca loading with crazed liberal protest's are going down to DC for the inauguration.

And I seen somewhere else, a group of Patriot bikers, we're making a meat shield to protect President Trump, if the Police need them.


My opinion only.


What happens this next week, could be a good indicator the direction of the country.




If a group of Protecting Patriots, and a group of Protesting Liberals meet head on, it could be interesting.



It could get real funny if code pink shows up with their air force.

Nope. You don't live in the real world.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/08/politics/donald-trump-approval-ratings-pew-poll-transition/

Americans are less approving of President-elect Donald Trump than they were of previous presidents during their transitions into office, a new Pew Research Group poll shows. Americans say Trump has also done too little to distance himself from white supremacists. And a majority are concerned that his business ties will present conflicts.

As Trump prepares to take office, 41% say they approve of the job he has done explaining his plans and policies for the future of the American people, while 55% say they disapprove of the job Trump has done. That 41% approval rating is lower than President Barack Obama's 72% in December 2008 and President George W. Bush's 50% in January 2001 -- in the wake of a disputed election. It's also lower than President Bill Clinton's 62% in January 1993 and President George H.W. Bush's 65% in March 1989.

Today's news. Trump is clueless. His constant blasting of the US intelligence community is very scary indeed. I can't imagine why he is doing it. It has the potential for great harm to this nation.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/15/politics/john-brennan-cia-donald-trump/index.html

CIA Director John Brennan implored President-elect Donald Trump to put his confidence in the intelligence community and develop an "appreciation" for the effect his words could have on national security.

The CIA director and formal deputy national security adviser to Obama also warned Trump on Russia, saying he did not believe Trump understood the threat of Russia, while also saying he hoped the Trump administration would be able to see an improvement in the US-Russia relationship.

"I don't think he has a full appreciation of Russian capabilities, Russia's intentions," Brennan said, adding that Trump "does not yet" fully appreciate what embracing Russia might mean.

Is Trump ready for a national security crisis?

Personnel gaps across security and defense bodies has stoked concerns that the new administration could get caught flat-footed.


To help the Trump team prepare for the worst, on Saturday the Obama White House held an emergency-management exercise with nearly two-dozen Trump appointees, including Flynn, McFarland, Mattis, and Trump’s nominees for CIA director, Rep. Mike Pompeo, and for Director of National Intelligence, Sen. Dan Coats.

But that exercise focused on natural disasters, and not the type of catastrophic terrorist attack that some fear could strain an understaffed Trump team.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 01/18/17 07:04 AM

It's becoming quite evident that you're missing the entire target, sometimes the the whole background if I can use the terminology. One huge pitfall you find yourself in is the fact that most Republicans dominate any scenario by talking excessively and not allowing a Liberal to get a word in edge wise, example, several times a day you come here with criticism, not toward government but more so toward Liberals only. A fool, dullard, dimwit, slow wit, illiterate and any other unwise person will attempt to state that Republicans make great choices and Democrats create mistakes. It's unlearned individuals such as yourself, who constantly berate and browbeat causing Liberals to defend the good that has been done, while never offering a mutual understanding of how things can be improved or allowing Liberal to highlight the good that has been accomplished Bottom line Sir, a Conservative like yourself possess this defensive mechanism which only hear and see what it wants and facts and truth is filtered out 99% of the time, surely you fool only cwjga if you think that constant screaming and bloviating changes the narrative. Now......while I have this moment, explain why this incoming President has some of the lowest approval numbers in 50 years? I get to expose your weakness, you'll never answer the question while retorting that those numbers are "rigged" of false. confused
I guess that these numbers are rigged as well.

It's apparent that you don't get around the world. I've visited Mexico, PR and most of the Caribbeans. Guess the prices of automobiles, electronica & basic food items such as meats,and lettuce? 4 times more than what we pay, ever observe the price of gasoline there, ask the question why, a Toyota van is surcharged 98% import fee, cigarettes are surcharged 140% (again, look it up please for your education. These fees go to the government, not the people and meanwhile, a vehicle cost twice as much. When you see a surcharge on TVs, vehicles and other consumer items here in the US, I can bet ignorance will go fleeting when the cost to buy triples in price.

Here's a article of 10 years ago, factor in inflation and you do the math.

Is this true?

Six donors that Trump appointed gave almost $12 million with their families to back his campaign and the party
By Matea Gold and Anu Narayanswamy December 9, 2016

WWE co-founder Linda McMahon was the third biggest backer of President-elect Donald Trump's White House bid. (Mike Segar/Reuters)
With his choice of restaurant executive Andrew Puzder to serve as his Labor secretary, President-elect Donald Trump has now tapped six big donors and fundraisers to serve in his administration, lining up an unprecedented concentration of wealthy backers for top posts.

Together with their families, Trump's nominees gave $11.6 million to support his presidential bid, his allied super PACs and the Republican National Committee, according to a Washington Post analysis of federal campaign filings.

One single appointee — WWE co-founder Linda McMahon — contributed $7.5 million to back his White House run before Trump selected her to run the Small Business Administration this week. She and her husband Vince were also the top outside donors to Trump's private foundation.

It’s not unusual for top presidential donors and bundlers to land plum assignments after an election. Ambassadorships to sought-after locales, such as London and Paris, are usually reserved for big money players. In recent administrations, senior campaign fundraisers have been chosen for Commerce secretary: Penny Pritzker under President Obama, Don Evans under President George W. Bush, Ronald Brown under President Bill Clinton, and Robert Mosbacher under President George H.W. Bush.

Wealthy donors get plum Trump Cabinet nods, bringing scrutiny Play Video3:04
The Post’s Matea Gold looks at how President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign pledge to “drain the swamp” of special interests and big donors compares with his Cabinet picks so far. (Video: Bastien Inzaurralde/Photo: Jabin Botsford/The Washington Post)
But longtime watchers of money in politics cannot recall any president in recent history who has filled a Cabinet with so many major donors.

[Trump taps wrestling executive to lead Small Business Administration]

“In the past, they were a little hidden — they were sent overseas to be ambassadors,” said David Donnelly, president of Every Voice, an advocacy group that seeks to reduce the influence of wealthy donors on politics. “In this administration, they are going to be front and center making policy.”

Fred Wertheimer, president of the watchdog group Democracy 21, said Trump's choices raise questions about his pledge to “drain the swamp.”

“This is bound to result in all kinds of conflict and appearances of conflicts in terms of the financial interests of the people being appointed to high positions,” he said.

The president-elect's decision to put his major political backers in senior Cabinet positions is a jarring contrast with Trump's rhetoric through this year's campaign. He repeatedly declared himself independent of wealthy donors and predicted Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's benefactors would “have total control over everything she does.”

“Donald Trump gave his Foundation's largest donor a CABINET spot yesterday,” Clinton adviser Ronald Klain tweeted Thursday. “Did you see blaring headlines? Imagine if HRC had done that??”

[Trump donors continued to give millions after his election victory]

Trump transition officials did not respond to requests for comment.

The president-elect has defended the backgrounds of his Cabinet picks, saying he is choosing “killers” who know how to win. “I want people that made a fortune,” he told supporters at a rally in Des Moines Thursday night. “Because now they are negotiating with you, okay?”

Here's a breakdown of the donors Trump has nominated to serve in his administration and how much they gave:

Small Business administrator: Linda McMahon, $7.5 million

McMahon, co-founder of the professional wrestling franchise WWE and a former Republican Senate candidate from Connecticut, was the third biggest financial backer of Trump’s presidential bid, giving $7.5 million to pro-Trump super PACs, the RNC and his campaign. Between 2007 and 2009, she and her husband Vince gave $5 million to Trump's charitable foundation.

Education secretary: Betsy DeVos, $1.8 million (contributed by the DeVos family)

The Michigan billionaire philanthropist and her husband, Richard, whose father was the co-founder of Amway, are major conservative donors and GOP contributors. The couple gave nearly $317,000 to the Republican National Committee this cycle. Altogether, the DeVos family contributed a total of $1.8 million this cycle to the party and Trump's campaign.

Deputy Commerce secretary: Todd Ricketts, $1.3 million (contributed by his parents)

TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts — the father of Todd, a co-owner of the Chicago Cubs — helped finance Future45, a super PAC that spent lavishly for Trump in the final weeks of the campaign. Joe Ricketts gave the group $1 million. He and his wife, Marlene, also contributed nearly $343,000 to support Trump's campaign and the Republican Party.

Treasury secretary: Steven Mnuchin, $425,000

Mnuchin served as Trump's national finance chairman, helping organize dozens of high-dollar campaign fundraisers across the country. The former Goldman Sachs executive and hedge fund manager also personally contributed $425,000 to the campaign and party.

Labor secretary: Andrew Puzder, $332,000

Puzder, who runs CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., served on the Trump Victory committee as one of his top fundraisers in California. He and his wife together contributed $332,200.

Commerce secretary: Wilbur Ross, $200,000

The billionaire investor was an early financial supporter of Trump's campaign. Ross opened his Southampton, N.Y., estate for one of the campaign's first fundraisers, which cost $25,000 a head. Ross personally contributed $200,000.

It remains to be seen whether Trump will draw any other major contributors into his administration. New federal filings show his billionaire supporters poured millions more into pro-Trump super PACs in the final stretch of the race. His biggest supporters: casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, who gave a total of $21.2 million to support his run. They were followed by Home Depot co-founder Bernard Marcus ($7.6 million), McMahon ($7.5 million), Dallas banker Andy Beal ($4.4 million) and hedge fund executive Robert Mercer ($3.4 million).

One of Mercer's daughters, Rebekah Mercer, is close to three of Trump's top advisers: Stephen K. Bannon, Kellyanne Conway and David Bossie. She and her father are expected to be major boosters of a new group Conway is likely to lead that will serve as an outside political operation to support his agenda.

It’s not unusual for top presidential donors and bundlers to land plum assignments after an election. Ambassadorships to sought-after locales, such as London and Paris, are usually reserved for big money players. In recent administrations, senior campaign fundraisers have been chosen for Commerce secretary: Penny Pritzker under President Obama, Don Evans under President George W. Bush, Ronald Brown under President Bill Clinton, and Robert Mosbacher under President George H.W. Bush.

But longtime watchers of money in politics cannot recall any president in recent history who has filled a Cabinet with so many major donors.

“In the past, they were a little hidden — they were sent overseas to be ambassadors,” said David Donnelly, president of Every Voice, an advocacy group that seeks to reduce the influence of wealthy donors on politics. “In this administration, they are going to be front and center making policy.”

Fred Wertheimer, president of the watchdog group Democracy 21, said Trump's choices raise questions about his pledge to “drain the swamp.”

“This is bound to result in all kinds of conflict and appearances of conflicts in terms of the financial interests of the people being appointed to high positions,” he said.

The president-elect's decision to put his major political backers in senior Cabinet positions is a jarring contrast with Trump's rhetoric through this year's campaign. He repeatedly declared himself independent of wealthy donors and predicted Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's benefactors would “have total control over everything she does.”

“Donald Trump gave his Foundation's largest donor a CABINET spot yesterday,” Clinton adviser Ronald Klain tweeted Thursday. “Did you see blaring headlines? Imagine if HRC had done that??”

[Trump donors continued to give millions after his election victory]

Trump transition officials did not respond to requests for comment.

The president-elect has defended the backgrounds of his Cabinet picks, saying he is choosing “killers” who know how to win. “I want people that made a fortune,” he told supporters at a rally in Des Moines Thursday night. “Because now they are negotiating with you, okay?”

Here's a breakdown of the donors Trump has nominated to serve in his administration and how much they gave:

Small Business administrator: Linda McMahon, $7.5 million

McMahon, co-founder of the professional wrestling franchise WWE and a former Republican Senate candidate from Connecticut, was the third biggest financial backer of Trump’s presidential bid, giving $7.5 million to pro-Trump super PACs, the RNC and his campaign. Between 2007 and 2009, she and her husband Vince gave $5 million to Trump's charitable foundation.

Education secretary: Betsy DeVos, $1.8 million (contributed by the DeVos family)

The Michigan billionaire philanthropist and her husband, Richard, whose father was the co-founder of Amway, are major conservative donors and GOP contributors. The couple gave nearly $317,000 to the Republican National Committee this cycle. Altogether, the DeVos family contributed a total of $1.8 million this cycle to the party and Trump's campaign.

Deputy Commerce secretary: Todd Ricketts, $1.3 million (contributed by his parents)

TD Ameritrade founder Joe Ricketts — the father of Todd, a co-owner of the Chicago Cubs — helped finance Future45, a super PAC that spent lavishly for Trump in the final weeks of the campaign. Joe Ricketts gave the group $1 million. He and his wife, Marlene, also contributed nearly $343,000 to support Trump's campaign and the Republican Party.

Treasury secretary: Steven Mnuchin, $425,000

Mnuchin served as Trump's national finance chairman, helping organize dozens of high-dollar campaign fundraisers across the country. The former Goldman Sachs executive and hedge fund manager also personally contributed $425,000 to the campaign and party.

Labor secretary: Andrew Puzder, $332,000

Puzder, who runs CKE Restaurants, the parent company of Hardee’s and Carl’s Jr., served on the Trump Victory committee as one of his top fundraisers in California. He and his wife together contributed $332,200.

Commerce secretary: Wilbur Ross, $200,000

The billionaire investor was an early financial supporter of Trump's campaign. Ross opened his Southampton, N.Y., estate for one of the campaign's first fundraisers, which cost $25,000 a head. Ross personally contributed $200,000.

It remains to be seen whether Trump will draw any other major contributors into his administration. New federal filings show his billionaire supporters poured millions more into pro-Trump super PACs in the final stretch of the race. His biggest supporters: casino magnate Sheldon Adelson and his wife, Miriam, who gave a total of $21.2 million to support his run. They were followed by Home Depot co-founder Bernard Marcus ($7.6 million), McMahon ($7.5 million), Dallas banker Andy Beal ($4.4 million) and hedge fund executive Robert Mercer ($3.4 million).

One of Mercer's daughters, Rebekah Mercer, is close to three of Trump's top advisers: Stephen K. Bannon, Kellyanne Conway and David Bossie. She and her father are expected to be major boosters of a new group Conway is likely to lead that will serve as an outside political operation to support his agenda

he Washington Post has just published a video of Donald Trump on the set of Days of Our Lives in 2005. In it, Donald J. Trump, the Republican candidate for the presidency of the United States, is heard describing how he likes to sexually assault women.

The entire clip is gross and horrifying, even for Donald Trump. Here are some of the choicer quotes from a man who has said that he “would be the best for women”:

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married.”
“I did try and fuck her. She was married.”
“Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
“Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”

Auto Group Says Trump Trade Policies Will Kill 31,000 Car Jobs
Brad Tuttle,


Donald Trump has promised to be the greatest jobs president ever, and he’s pledged to usher in a golden age of manufacturing jobs for American workers in particular. But a new report argues that Trump’s trade plans could have the opposite effect on the auto industry, resulting in tens of thousands of American job losses.

A key part of Trump’s plan to boosting jobs is changing America’s trade policy. To wit, on Monday, Trump signed executive orders to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement, a.k.a. NAFTA, which was launched under President Bill Clinton in 1994 with the goal of opening up the movement of goods and services among the U.S., Mexico, and Canada.

Over the years, Ross Perot and Bernie Sanders have been among the many critics who have argued that NAFTA policies result in the outsourcing of jobs in the U.S. to other countries. Trump has been one of the most outspoken critics. In one of the 2016 presidential debates, Trump said that NAFTA—which was signed by the husband of his opponent, Hillary Clinton—is “the worst trade deal maybe ever signed anywhere, but certainly ever signed in this country.”

The biggest complaint about NAFTA is that it kills American employment, because it frees up companies to slash production costs by shifting manufacturing jobs outside the U.S. “America has lost nearly one-third of its manufacturing jobs since NAFTA,” the Trump campaign has argued. With that in mind, Trump’s position has been that as president he will “tell NAFTA partners that we intend to immediately renegotiate the terms of that agreement to get a better deal for our workers. If they don’t agree to a renegotiation, we will submit notice that the U.S. intends to withdraw from the deal.”

One of the threats Trump has made to companies shifting manufacturing outside the U.S. is the imposition of a 35% tariff on goods exported back to America.

However, the auto industry, which is one of the largest sectors potentially affected by Trump’s trade policies, says that the combination of new tariffs and changes to NAFTA will ultimately kill American jobs—and result in higher car prices and fewer choices for American drivers to boot.

The Center for Automotive Research (CAR), a nonprofit founded with the goal of improving “the competitiveness of the U.S. automotive industry,” published a new report highlighting how Trump’s trade policies could hurt the industry and everyday consumers alike. “If the U.S. were to enact a 35 percent tariff on light vehicles imported from Mexico, CAR estimates the sales impact would be 450,000 units in the United States, and an implied loss of nearly 6,700 North American assembly jobs,” the report states.

Meanwhile, because roughly 40% of the cars assembled in Mexico bound for the U.S. include parts that are manufactured in the U.S., thousands of other American workers would be impacted as well. All said, the report claims, “At least 31,000 U.S. jobs could be lost—in addition to some proportion of the 6,700 North American job loss—as a result of a 35 percent tariff on light vehicles and parts imports from Mexico.”

What’s more, the CAR report states that if the U.S. withdraws from NAFTA and Mexico takes the expected step of installing retaliatory tariffs on goods exported by America, the obvious consequence is that American exports will suffer—and China and other countries could benefit as a result. “If the U.S. leaves NAFTA, companies in Mexico and Canada may seek alternate, more affordable places to purchase these goods, such as China, India, and other regions with large, international U.S. competitors,” the report states.

It should be noted that CAR represents the auto industry, not auto industry workers, and that its goal is to help America’s automakers be as successful and profitable as possible. The upending of NAFTA would likely make it more complicated and costly for automakers to run their businesses. So there’s clearly some self-interest inherent in the industry arguing against changes to the status quo.

Bear in mind that the Brookings Institution, the non-partisan think tank, has also argued strongly against Trump’s plans to renegotiate from NAFTA and withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), the trade deal with Asian countries that was negotiated by Obama but never ratified by Congress. “Trump’s current trade proposals will work against each other, threatening to cancel out any gains, and likely inflicting additional costs on the very people he has pledged to help,” the Brookings Institution stated.

It’s essentially the same argument summed up in the conclusion of the CAR report:

Any move by the United States to withdraw from NAFTA or to otherwise restrict automotive vehicle, parts and components trade within North America will result in higher costs to producers, lower returns for investors, fewer choices for consumers, and a less competitive U.S. automotive and supplier industry. Counter to the incoming Trump Administration’s goal of creating manufacturing jobs the withdrawal from NAFTA or the implementation of punitive tariffs could result in the loss of at least 31,000 U.S. automotive and parts jobs.

Now President, Trump Once Again Lies About Why He Lost Popular Vote

Despite becoming arguably the most powerful man on the planet in recent days, reporting indicates Trump still willing to lie unabashedly to cushion his ego


Though he became the 45th President of the United States last Friday, Donald Trump on Monday took the opportunity of his first meeting with congressional leaders to again repeat the lie that he would have won the popular vote (which he lost to rival Hillary Clinton by nearly 3 million people) if it wasn't for millions of undocumented immigrants he claims participated in the election.

Having also lied on this issue in the aftermath of his electoral college victory in November, people in the room during Trump's meeting with House and Senate leaders from both parties said the president was at it again Monday.

"He said 3-5 million 'illegals' voted so that's why he lost popular vote," one Democratic aide told The Hill, noting Trump's use of the derogatory phrase often used by right-wingers to describe immigrant workers or those without proper documentation to be in the country. A second source who was in the room confirmed to The Hill: "That's exactly what he said."

Trump reportedly offered no evidence for his assertion, just stated it as a fact.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham on Tuesday said Donald Trump is undermining his presidency when he continues to repeat the lie that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election, costing him the popular vote. “It is the most inappropriate thing for the president to say without proof,” Graham told CNN in an interview on Capitol Hill. “We’re talking about a man who won the election and seems to be obsessed with the idea that he could not have possibly lost the popular vote without cheating and fraud. So I would urge the president to knock this off.” Trump, who lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton by nearly three million votes, reportedly repeated the unsubstantiated claim during a meeting with lawmakers on Monday night. “People are going to start doubting you as a person if you keep making accusations against our electoral system without justification,” Graham continued. “This is going to erode his ability to govern this country if he does not stop it.”

Obama lies for 8 years and now your feigning outrage. laugh

Over how many people did or did not attend something. laugh
Trump is the guy who keeps bringing up the attendance figures on his inauguration or this ridiculous topic would be forgotten. The rest of the world is either laughing at us or very concerned about America who they always looked up to before. He has got to be by far the most insecure man ever to be president. He has told more lies in 4 days as president than I ever heard Obama accused of in 8 years.


Who's counting? Not the GOP. In regard to his insecurity, it's becoming a daily BREAKING NEWS saga to listen to his Chief of Staff being grilled for the lies he or Trump told solely to justify his thin skinned lies and irrational outbursts.

I love that tired old rebuttal you Conservatives use. Now for a few simple questions
Who sets the insurance rates?
Who changed the insurance rates?
I know, this was the deal, Obama secretly made a pact with insurance companies, he stated to them, let me garner 20 million clients for you, once that's done, take the liberty and raise the rates. BTW never mind the fact that you promised to allow pre existing health issues to be covered. It really takes a dullard conservative to think that Obama and the insurance companies were that far ahead of the ball game....and think, you guys said that he wasn't smart. wink

Trump Signs Executive Order Requiring Elimination of Two Regulations For Every New One Implemented
Katie Pavlich

President Donald Trump kicked off his second full week in the Oval Office by meeting with small business owners at the White House and signed an executive order requiring the elimination of two federal regulations for every new regulation being implemented.

"The American dream is back and we’re going to create an environment for small business like we haven’t had in many, many decades, " Trump said. "We are going to simplify, reduce, eliminate regulations."



Trump also added that Dodd-Frank is a "disaster" and said his administration plans to take aim at the legislation, which was passed by Congress and signed by President Obama in 2010.

The order comes a week after Trump took executive action to ease the burden of Obamacare regulations.

One can only laugh at the foolishness of our fellow GOP, logic and common sense states that when they're disregarded, the propensity to repeat the same mistakes more than likely happens. Somehow you were MIA when the banks destroyed themselves because of a lack of regulations. Please read any article in regard to the cause of the 2008 recession, bet that you were crying the blues at the time. whistle

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/02/trump-impeachment-bets-234931

There’s already talk of impeachment, just three weeks into Donald Trump’s turbulent presidency. In fact, many are already betting on it.

Gambling houses all over the world are taking in action on whether Trump, inaugurated just last month, will resign or be impeached. And the odds aren’t as long as you might think.

Ladbrokes, the British oddsmaking giant, has Trump’s chances of leaving office via resignation or impeachment and removal at just 11-to-10, or just a little worse than even money. The odds of Trump being impeached this year in the House of Representatives are only 4-to-1, according to the Irish bookmaker Paddy Power, despite GOP control of the chamber. You can win $180 on a $100 bet with Bovada, the online gaming site, that Trump won’t make it through a full term — though the bet is off if Trump passes away during the next four years.

Analyst: Flynn disrespecting the presidency
Story highlights
Flynn resignation is an embarrassment for Trump
His departure sent shockwaves around the world
Washington (CNN)Michael Flynn's resignation as national security adviser removes an immediate political headache for the White House but will do little to dispel suspicions about his ties with Russia that now threaten to envelop President Donald Trump's nascent administration.

Flynn quit late Monday as controversy raged over revelations that he misled Vice President Mike Pence -- who then defended him on television -- over whether he discussed US sanctions with Moscow's ambassador to the US before the inauguration. Such a move could be a breach of the law.
On a night of stunning, fast-moving drama, extraordinary even by this White House's elevated standards, Flynn's fate took on a sense of inevitability despite Trump's instinct to retain a loyal aide. By Monday evening, White House press secretary Sean Spicer issued a statement saying Trump was "evaluating the situation." His departure was confirmed hours later.
Read Michael T Flynn's resignation letter
The former general's resignation -- at the start of only the fourth week of the new administration -- is an embarrassment for Trump and a blow to a White House already embroiled in internal political dramas. It deprives Trump, who has no foreign policy experience and a barely formed national security team, of his most important White House adviser charged with keeping Americans safe from foreign threats.
His departure sent shockwaves around the world, raising questions about the administration's readiness to confront any sudden national security crisis. And since Trump frequently boasted that he would install a governing team of the highest caliber, Flynn's fall from grace is certain to raise questions about the judgment of the President himself.
Potential ramifications
The potential ramifications of the Flynn saga deepened as Monday night wore on. It emerged that the Justice Department warned the White House last month that Flynn had not been truthful about the calls with the Russian envoy and could be susceptible to Russian blackmail.
That information, disclosed to CNN by sources familiar to the matter, exposed the White House itself to questions about what officials did with the Justice Department warning and whether Trump himself was told.
Also unknown is whether Trump was aware that Flynn spoke to the Russian ambassador to the US about American sanctions imposed on Moscow late in the Obama administration to punish the Kremlin's alleged intervention in the presidential election.
Flynn fallout: read more
How to get fired by the President
Behind the scenes before Flynn's resignation
WH warned he could be blackmailed
Meet his potential replacements
This doesn't end WH controversy
Read Flynn's resignation letter
"What did the President know and when did he know it?" senior CNN political analyst David Axelrod said, using a phrase made famous by the Watergate scandal.
That unanswered question will fuel bipartisan congressional concerns about the administration's relationship with Russia and conduct in the Flynn affair.
Before Flynn's resignation, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio told CNN's Manu Raju that his contacts with the Russian embassy should form part of a Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the presidential election.
Adam Schiff, the ranking Democratic member of the House Intelligence Committee, said Flynn's departure had become inevitable, but also warned that the controversy was far from over.
How to get fired by the president of the United States
"Flynn's departure does not end questions over his contacts with the Russians, which have been alleged to have begun well before December 29," Schiff said in a statement. "These alleged contacts and any others the Trump campaign may have had with the Kremlin are the subject of the House Intelligence Committee's ongoing investigation."
He went on: "Moreover, the Trump Administration has yet to be forthcoming about who was aware of Flynn's conversations with the Ambassador and whether he was acting on the instructions of the President or any other officials, or with their knowledge."
Personal aspects
Apart from the national security and even legal ramifications of Flynn's conduct, there is also a personal aspect for Trump.
The former general was picked for the role of national security adviser despite his controversial past. He was fired from the Obama administration from his post as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency over claims he was a poor manager. Conservatives, however, complained that the real reason for his clash with the previous administration was over differences on Islamic terrorism.
Flynn emerged as a loyal and outspoken supporter of Trump, warning graphically on the campaign trail about the dangers America faces from terrorism. Administration officials indicated Trump did not fire Flynn.
Behind the scenes: A White House in turmoil
In the end, after the revelations about Flynn and the fact that the national security adviser had embarrassed the vice president, he had little choice but to step down. Had he remained in the administration, Pence's credibility would have been seriously eroded.
Flynn said in his letter of resignation that he had apologized to both the Pence and the Trump and that his apology had been accepted.
"Unfortunately, because of the fast pace of events, I inadvertently briefed the Vice President-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian Ambassador," Flynn said in his letter of resignation.
Trump must now move quickly to find a new national security adviser both to steady his reeling administration and the morale of his NSC and to send a signal of foreign policy continuity to US allies and enemies.
Trump on Monday named Gen. Keith Kellogg, who is already serving as NSC Chief of Staff as the interim national security adviser. A senior administration official said Kellogg, retired Gen. David Petraeus and former Vice Admiral Bob Harward are possible replacements for Flynn. A senior official told CNN Tuesday that Harward is considered the top contender for the job.
Petraeus presents an intriguing dilemma for Trump, since he is widely respected in Washington over his stewardship of the Iraq war surge, is a consummate political player, a former CIA director and would confer immediate gravitas and credibility on a rudimentary White House foreign policy shop.
But Petraeus fell from grace over the mishandling of classified information and remains on probation. Though he would not require Senate confirmation, his appointment would open Trump to claims of inconsistency given that he lambasted his Democratic foe Hillary Clinton over her private email server during the election campaign to make the case that she was careless with the nation's top secrets.
Trump defends travel ban as Trudeau looks on
Flynn's departure from the administration also adds new uncertainty about the direction of its foreign policy, particularly towards Russia.
The former general was seen as an advocate of Trump's plans to seek to ease the estrangement in relations with Moscow -- a stance that has mystified both Republican and Democratic foreign policy experts in Washington.
But the President has in recent days reversed some of his most searing rhetoric -- embracing the so-called one-China policy that governs US relations with Taiwan after earlier warning that it was on the table in trade talks with Beijing.
He also offered a red carpet welcome to Japan's Prime Minster Shinzo Abe -- and apparently did not follow up on his demand for Tokyo to pay more for US security protection.
So a reversal on his position on Russia should not be ruled out if a new national security adviser takes a different approach.
Politically, meanwhile, Trump's decision to let Flynn go will fuel new speculation about how he will handle other feuds that are rocking his administration. It may be too early to rule out other departures.

Poor dumbfounded fool. Staggering around this place in an "alternative reality" daze. Unable to crap out a comprehensible, let alone a well-founded contribution for his task master Trump.

Watching Tommyboy's pathetic stream of second-rate shilling and flaccid slams. Like watching a slow-motion train wreck.

Aaaahh....the awesomeness of cheap thrills. grin





What's really funny is the fact that Tommy derailed his own topic by means of a lack of rebuttals....well if you construe baby talk as articulating your views....anyway you look at it, he was never on a debate team in high school. whistle
Now he's angry, frustrated and name calling because we told him that the earth is round, a factual and proven topic but ignorance on his part, keeps up the nonsensical attempts anyways to prove you wrong.

Mean while in reality land.

I think you are confused. Trumps biggest foreign supporter is Russia.



As of this morning, we are watching Russia strategically place one of it's destroyers off the coast of the New England states, observing Israel's President short of laughing his posterior off in regard to Trump's odd behavior at a press conference, Mexico's Presidents current and former call him a crazy man in regard to who will pay for the wall, all this in 27 days but for those with excellent memories, the GOP stated that Obama was too soft. Now that we have a bullish and brash dullard for POTUS, why is so much anti America and anti Trump protesting culminating all around the world like no time in history? It's a testament to how diplomacy sometimes comes across a weak but exposes the idiocy of a loudmouth with the capability to insult and agitate our foreign countries into retaliation if you disrespect them and believe you me, countries such as China, Russia and Korea are more than willing to have you test their ability to stand up to perceived bullies.

Buyers’ Remorse: Americans Think Trump is Bad at Almost Everything

Juan Cole
Informed Comment

February 23, 2017

The vast majority of Americans in a new Quinnipiac opinion poll do not believe that Donald J. Trump is level-headed or shares their values. Of course, this is only one poll, and likely the plus or minus swing is 3 or 4 percent. But actually the findings are so decisive in most cases that that wouldn’t matter. Qunnipiac showed Trump beating Clinton last summer, so you can’t accuse them of being biased against him.

And only 38% think he is doing a good job in his first month, versus 55% who say no. In contrast, a strong majority trust the courts to do the right thing.

This finding has to be underlined. Only 33 percent of Americans (as projected from this poll) think Trump is level-headed.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 02/25/17 10:36 AM

Buyer's remorse is an understatement but I think that we will agree that Trump's words and actions are not surprising to a majority of the country. The radical portion voted for and prayed that he would do all the vile and despicable things he promised to do during the campaign while the normal rationale dealt with that mentality which has been around for centuries. Remember the Salem era when women & men were construed as Witches and Warlots if they didn't fit the norm? How millions of human being were brought over only to be treated like farm animals, we as American saw no harm in taking advantage of the Irish and Italian to use them to build our structures, took Japanese American to containment centers to be monitored,Native Americans were deemed "heathens or savages" Our Moms and grandmothers were considered second class citizens, the list goes on but my faith is in the 65% of Americans who will stand up to this radicalism ultimately and say "enough is enough" That 35% ? Well, we must contend with them until the end of times. whistle
The astounding aspect of the 35%, the most vile and under educated feel compelled to be the outspoken surrogates due to their non relevancy and feeling left out toward the movement.

President Donald Trump made good on a long-time conservative goal in his first proposed budget Thursday morning, targeting the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities for complete elimination.

Trump’s budget would zero out the $445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, a relatively small source of funding for programming and broadcast operations on public TV stations and NPR radio stations nationwide, per the Washington Post.

God morning Thomas, I'm told that NY received a great deal of snow, hope that all is well and please be safe. Now, in regard to Trump's budget, it's been a proven fact for the last 4 decades that people with little education, special gifts such musical interests or mathematical prowess see very little need to invest in those areas which benefit children and associated areas, thus the obvious understanding from you or other like you who live menial lives.. I find it interesting as well that you Trump supporters fail to realize Mr. Trump's poor comprehensive levels in regard to reading (Please, this is no joke, the man is slightly dyslectic like his son, math and other classes were minimal but when you have a rich and powerful father, teachers and professor listen) It's an old proverbial saying from many parents "I didn't go beyond 12th grade and look at me" A child is force to stand there and observe Dad wearing a shirt with a name ironed on the front while Mom wears a hairnet in her profession. They call that repeated and dysfunctional parenting which is the reason we see people such as yourself living basically out of their cars with no means of being self sufficient and contribute to society adverse to sucking off the teats of the Federal government.

GM will rehire 500 Michigan workers slated for layoffs

By David Shepardson | WASHINGTON

General Motors Co plans next year to rehire 500 Michigan assembly plant workers who are to be laid off in May, citing increased demand for larger vehicles, the company said on Wednesday.

GM said last week it planned to lay off 1,100 workers in May at its Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan. The company is moving production of the GMC Acadia mid-size SUV to Spring Hill, Tennessee, from the factory, which will build just two models, the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave SUVs.

The company said that when it begins full production of the new versions of the two models in 2018, it would "bring back approximately 500 jobs to give the company flexibility to meet market demand."

Last year, pickups and SUVs accounted for 59.5 percent of U.S. auto sales, up from 55.8 percent in 2015.

GM also said it would add 220 jobs at a plant in Romulus, Michigan, that is building 10-speed automatic transmissions, and it would retain 180 jobs by shifting Lansing workers to a Flint assembly plant to support pickup truck production.

The announcement came as U.S. President Donald Trump visited Michigan to announce his administration will review fuel efficiency standards, a move that could help automakers sell more larger models.

Trump praised recent job announcements by Ford Motor Co, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and GM.

"That's just the beginning," he said in a speech to autoworkers in Ypsilanti, Michigan, on Wednesday. "I told (the auto executives) that's peanuts, that's peanuts. We're going to have a lot more. They're going to be building new plants, expanding their plants."

Trump has discouraged the industry from investing in Mexico and urged foreign automakers on Wednesday to add U.S. production at a roundtable that included executives from Toyota Motor Corp, Volkswagen AG (VOWG_p.DE) and others.

GM did not credit Trump with the decision to add jobs.

"We haven’t fundamentally changed any of our plans, but we continue to look for ways to improve our operations and find ways to help the country, grow jobs and support economic growth," GM spokesman Pat Morrissey said.

With analysts forecasting U.S. auto sales are at or near their peak, no automaker has announced plans to build a new plant despite pressure from Trump.

The Detroit automaker in recent months has announced other U.S. job cuts and new investments. GM said in January it would invest another $1 billion in its U.S. factories.

GM said in November it would cut about 2,000 jobs when it ended the third shift at its Lordstown, Ohio, and Lansing Grand River, Michigan, plants in January. In December, it said it planned to cancel the second shift and cut nearly 1,300 jobs from its Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant in March.

Will Obama apologize?

Obama admin. sent taxpayer money to campaign to oust Netanyahu

By Stephen Dinan - The Washington Times - Tuesday, July 12, 2016
The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
In one stunning finding, the subcommittee said OneVoice even told the State Department’s top diplomat in Jerusalem of its plans in an email, but the official, Consul General Michael Ratney, claims never to have seen them.
He said he regularly deleted emails with large attachments — a striking violation of open-records laws for a department already reeling from former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s handling of official government records.
Mr. Netanyahu survived the election, and the U.S. spending was not deemed illegal because the State Department never put any conditions on the money. Investigators also said OneVoice didn’t turn explicitly political until days after the grant period ended.

How long will he last?

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/feinstein-trump-ouster-quote-236217

Sen. Dianne Feinstein seemed to indicate Friday that she expects President Donald Trump may disqualify himself from office over potential constitutional breaches and conflicts of interest.

Surrounded by a group of mostly liberal protesters outside a Los Angeles fundraiser, Feinstein fielded a slew of questions on her feelings about what the left has alleged are Trump's constitutional breaches, including one activist's recitation of Trump's potential conflicts of interest -- from profiting off of his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, to winning trademarks in China.

"How are we going to get him out?" the questioner asked.

"I think he's gonna get himself out," the California Democrat and ranking member of the Senate intelligence committee replied.

Her comment was captured on video by LA Times reporter Javier Panzar, who posted the exchanges on Twitter. A Feinstein spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.

Feinstein, though, stopped short of suggesting that Trump should be impeached. Asked directly by another demonstrator whether Trump had committed impeachable offenses, Feinstein replied, "I can't answer that right now."

She also alluded to bills filed by Democratic lawmakers that would police Trump's business conflicts.

"I think sending sons to another country to make a financial deal for his company and then have that covered with government expense, I believe those government expenses should not be allowed," she said, alluding to a recent trip by Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump to Dubai, where they opened a new golf club.

Feinstein suggested the president's potential conflicts raise questions about the Constitution's "emoluments clause," which prohibits federal officials from accepting payments from foreign governments.

Unbelievable. I watched their very tense joint news conference on TV. We have a fake president. A German reporter asked him about Twitter. He said he likes Twitter because it allows him to talk directly to the people and avoid fake news. Once he stops holding news conferences where reporters can ask question of him, our democracy is lost.

Trump was so very wrong when he said the "press is the enemy of the people". It is vital to the survival of our democracy.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/rex-tillerson-media-fatigue-korea_us_58caefeee4b0ec9d29da247d?

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson reportedly opted not to have a meal Friday with his South Korean counterparts because of “fatigue,” according to a line buried toward the end of an article in The Korea Herald.

It’s a newsworthy development, not just because this is Tillerson’s first trip to Asia as secretary &#8213; a trip that comes amid a looming North Korean nuclear threat &#8213; but because of what it suggests about his stamina. And the fact that it was only known through the accounts of anonymous “Seoul officials” via a foreign outlet is noteworthy in and of itself.

That’s because Tillerson has taken this trip without the usual accompaniment of the U.S. press corps. It’s a break with tradition, and it introduced a host of complications and potential pitfalls. For example, Americans have no independent confirmation as to whether “fatigue” did in fact play a role in Tillerson’s actions.

WASHINGTON — As Congress wrestles over the House Republican health care bill, California Gov. Jerry Brown attacked the legislation, alleging that any lawmaker who supports the legislation will find "their name is going to be mud."

"This bill is not health care reform, or repeal and replace — it's death, disease and suffering," said Brown, a Democrat, in an exclusive interview airing this Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press."

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 03/23/17 04:32 PM

Mr. Moss was from Ithaca. I posted this after seeing him on CNN this afternoon.

http://www.wtae.com/article/grieving-father-i-dont-play-trump-songs-anymore/9167184



Last year, Kraig Moss sold the equipment for his construction business in upstate New York and stopped making mortgage payments so he could follow Donald Trump on the campaign trail.
Advertisement

The amateur country crooner sang pro-Trump ditties while strumming a guitar emblazoned with Trump campaign stickers, earning him the moniker "Trump Troubadour."

International media dubbed him "the voice of unheard America."

But now, Moss refuses to play the guitar with the Trump decorations. He's soured on the President because of the newly proposed Republican health care bill.

That legislation, which the president supports, could result in dramatic cuts in addiction treatment services.

Three years ago, Moss found his son, Rob, dead in his bed from a heroin overdose. He was 24.

"The bill is an absolute betrayal of what Trump represented on the campaign trail," he said. "I feel betrayed."

Moss feels it personally.

Last year, at a campaign rally in Iowa, Trump reached out and spoke directly to Moss about Rob's death.

"In all fairness to your son, it's a tough thing. Some very, very strong people have not been able to get off (heroin)," Trump called out to Moss in the crowd. "The biggest thing we can do in honor of your son ... we have to be able to stop it."

When Moss became emotional, Trump comforted him.

"I know what you went through. And he's a great father. I can see it. And your son is proud of you. Your son is proud of you," Trump said. "I'll bet he was a great boy."

Several times on the campaign trail, Trump vowed to increase services for people facing addiction.

"We will help all of those people so seriously addicted. We'll get them assistance," he told the crowd at a campaign event in New Hampshire in October.

Moss trusted Trump.

"I truly believe from the heart that (Trump) is going to do everything he can. He's going to create treatment centers for the kids," he said last year.

But last week, Moss read about the proposed American Health Care Act. The Republican bill would end the Obamacare requirement that addiction services and mental health treatment be covered under Medicaid in the 31 states that expanded the health care program -- which include Moss' home state of New York.

The Navajo Generating Station and the Kayenta Mine on Navajo land in Arizona has directly and indirectly provided 3,100 jobs and $180 million in annual income to workers and their families.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/30/americas/venezuela-dissolves-national-assembly/index.html

In a surprising move the Venezuelan opposition is calling a coup, the Venezuelan Supreme Court has stripped the country's National Assembly of its powers. The court ruled that all powers vested under the legislative body will be transferred to the Supreme Court, which is stacked with government loyalists.

The ruling effectively means the three branches of the Venezuelan government will be controlled by the ruling United Socialist Party. The opposition has been taken out of the picture. Prominent opposition leaders are already calling the government of President Nicolás Maduro "a dictatorship.

Toyota announces $1.33 billion investment in Kentucky plant

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Toyota said Monday it is investing $1.33 billion to retool its sprawling factory in Georgetown, Kentucky, where the company's flagship Camry sedans are built.

No new factory jobs are being added, but Toyota says the upgrades amount to the biggest single investment ever at one of its existing plants in the United States. The retooling also will sustain the existing 8,200 jobs at Toyota's largest plant, where about one-fourth of all Toyota vehicles produced in North America are made, the automaker said.

"This major overhaul will enable the plant to stay flexible and competitive, further cementing our presence in Kentucky," said Wil James, president of the plant, which also assembles the Avalon and the Lexus ES 350.

The updates at the Kentucky plant are part of Toyota's plans to invest $10 billion in the United States over the next five years, said CEO Jim Lentz of Toyota Motor North America, in a news release.

President Donald Trump, in a paragraph that Toyota said was added to its news release at the White House's request on Sunday night, praised the investment and said it is "further evidence that manufacturers are now confident that the economic climate has greatly improved under my administration." The paragraph cited the National Association of Manufacturers' first-quarter outlook survey. It found that 93.3 percent of manufacturers are somewhat or very positive about their company's outlook, a record high that's up from 77.8 percent in December.

Admit it son, if you offered 50 more posts, the fact remains,

Trump is losing popularity day by day
protests against him are increasing
lastly, he's and his dossier are ratcheting up the fact that he at best will be impeached.

Let's make that 200 posts, the above won't change, thus the reason your efforts are laughable and fruitless.

I see your silly comment so often. Read and learn.

http://www.cnn.com/ALLPOLITICS/1997/gen/indepth/polls/faq.html

I Haven'T Ever Been Called (And Neither Have Any Of My Friends). Doesn'T That Mean Your Polls Are Wrong?

Not at all. The samples of people we pick for our polls are valid as long as everyone else in the country has the same chance as you do to be selected. In a nation of about 200 million adults, we certainly won't talk to everyone. But if all 200 million have an equal chance of being picked, it stands to reason that the people who are chosen will generally reflect the views of all the ones who haven't been interviewed -- including you.

But Your Polls Don'T Match What I Think And What My Friends Think.

We'd be surprised if they did. We try to make sure that we have polled plenty of people just like you, but we also try to make sure that we poll plenty of people who are unlike you. Our polls aren't meant to reflect exclusively the conversations you have at work, the radio stations you listen to, or your family's dinnertable discussions. They are meant to reflect a little piece of the conversations every American has at work, radio stations all across the country, and the dinnertable conversations of 200 million Americans.

It's understandable to assume that your experiences are typical of what the whole country is thinking. But how many people do you know from the Northeast, or the Deep South, or the Mountain West? How many people do you talk to on a daily basis who are far richer than you, or far poorer? How many of your friends talk politics with people who live in inner cities and on farms, who are retired and still in college, who are divorced with several children and happily married with none? That's why CNN conducts polls -- to talk to tremendously different people all across the United States all at the same time.

In fact, in any poll, there is a group of respondents who are like you and your friends. If we just looked at those respondents, you would see poll results that reflected your views. But we want to show how the entire country feels about issues.

1,000 people per poll is a good number. Divide by a population of 300,000,000 by 1,000 per poll and you should get asked to participate once in every 30,000 polls. If you don't get picked, you should complain.

Donald Trump’s Rise Laid The Groundwork For Bill O’Reilly’s Fall

The election of a man with a history of sexual misconduct unleashed a massive backlash. O’Reilly is feeling it.

Pussy-gate was supposed to doom Trump. Last summer, after the tape of his bragging about grabbing women by the genitals was made public, thousands of women shared their own stories of sexual assault on Twitter and other social media. It was a natural next step. For at least the past couple of years, more and more women have been coming forward to tell their own stories of sexual assault and harassment.

Long-silenced women told horrifying stories about Bill Cosby in 2015, for example. Roland also pointed to the furor over Stanford student Brock Turner, who served just three months of a lenient six-month sentence for sexual assault last year. His victim bravely spoke up.

Trump’s election only added fuel to the fire.

“Sometimes you have to take a step back to take two steps forward,” said Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, a nonprofit women’s group. She’s been working on women’s issues for close to a decade, after leaving a career on Wall Street. “There is a level of engagement and awakening now,” she said. “I’ve never seen anything like it before.”

The pressure on Fox News to dump O’Reilly began in earnest soon after a bombshell New York Times report on April 1 revealed that the network and the news host had together paid out $13 million to five different women who accused him of inappropriate behavior over a decade and a half. The women alleged that O’Reilly had targeted them with verbal abuse and lewd comments &#8213; even phone calls in which he could apparently be heard masturbating.

Two of the O’Reilly settlements happened after Fox News Chairman and CEO Roger Ailes was ousted from the company. Female employees had accused Ailes of sexual misdeeds, including firing host Gretchen Carlson after she declined his sexual advances. At the time, Fox said it would no longer tolerate this kind of misconduct.

The New York Times story was a tipping point for advertisers, said Rashad Robinson, executive director of the racial justice nonprofit Color of Change. His group had been pressing companies to stop running ads on “The O’Reilly Factor” for two years, after reports emerged that the news host had lied about being attacked by protesters during riots in Los Angeles in the 1990s. Another group that got on Fox’s case, Sleeping Giants, is actually a loosely organized group of volunteers who came together after Trump’s win to push advertisers to abandon Breitbart News.

The Times story was hard for advertisers to ignore, Robinson said. As more of them pulled their spots from O’Reilly’s show &#8213; over 80 have dropped out &#8213; the media ramped up its coverage, Robinson said.

Recently, Color of Change created a call line for Fox News employees to report harassment and placed ads online that geo-targeted social media users at Fox headquarters. Robinson hoped the ads were hard for Fox’s human relations department to ignore. “We wanted to encourage employees to speak out,” he said.

On Tuesday night, O’Reilly dismissed the idea that Americans were angry at him for good reason. In a statement, his lawyer said they had “uncovered evidence that the smear campaign is being orchestrated by far-left organizations bent on destroying O’Reilly for political and financial reasons.” Yet to come: the promised “irrefutable evidence” of that.

But more Fox News employees and contributors have been talking, activists say. Earlier on Tuesday, a black woman who’d once worked at the network said O’Reilly had called her “hot chocolate” and made repeated comments about her appearance.

Adding to the pressure on Fox was Megyn Kelly’s example: The rising star left the company in January in part because of O’Reilly’s behavior.

“Women are fired up,” Roland said.

Fox News is corrupt to the core. totally disgusting.

********************************************************

O’Reilly’s departure comes nine months after Fox News founder Roger Ailes was forced out as chairman following a sexual harassment lawsuit by former host Gretchen Carlson and allegations by at least a half-dozen women, all of which he denied. One of them was Megyn Kelly, who also clashed with O’Reilly and who decided to leave Fox for NBC last December.

Bill O'Reilly's departure Wednesday from Fox News Channel drew strong, celebratory responses from foes who had sought his ouster since The New York Times reported that the cable network and O'Reilly had paid about $13 million to five women who complained they had been victims of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior.

Other women also have complained about the top-rated Fox host, who is currently on a European vacation.

Lisa Bloom, a lawyer for three women accusing O'Reilly of misconduct, issued a "victory statement" praising the strength of women.

"This is what happens when women speak our truth: We can slay dragons," she wrote. "I am very proud to have stood with my brave clients who stood up for themselves and all the silenced women. … Fox News should have fired him in 2004 when the first complaint was made, but at least they did it now. They did it because we persisted."

UltraViolet, a women's rights group that planned and participated in an O'Reilly protest Tuesday at Fox News headquarters in New York, applauded O'Reilly's departure on Twitter.

Liberals: Saying 'Mother Of All Bombs' Is 'The Epitome Of Lethal Patriarchy' (Or This Is Why You Lost Part XXVI)
Matt Vespa

Well, the liberals are at it again with their political correctness nonsense. This time they took aim at the 22,000-lb Massive Ordnance Air Blast (aka the Mother of All Bombs), which progressives found offensive. While never been used in the field, it’s been in service since the Bush administration, so this outrage seems a bit delayed. Second, no one really cares that this bomb was gendered. It’s these politically correct antics that will continue to make the Left look abjectly insane and unpalatable. It’s part of the speech codes, the lectures on so-called privilege, and safe space authoritarian ethos that only emboldened the forces the helped elect Donald Trump as the 45th president of the United States. A lot may not have liked Trump, but after being lectured to, among other things, about how calling this 22,000-lb bomb is an example of “lethal patriarchy,” you would vote for the candidate who shunned this nonsense. And believe me mother of all bombs is a much friendlier term than what we really could call this bomb, give the conflict we’re in with radical Islamic terrorists.

The U.S. dropped a MOAB on ISIS fighters in Afghanistan, killing nearly 100 of them last week. Some saw this as sending a message to North Korea’s Kim Jong-un, who was making preparations for the 105th anniversary of the country’s founder, Kim Il Sung, which also included a possible nuclear weapons test. That didn’t happen. A missile test was conducted on Sunday, but it blew up on the platform.

Welcome to the club South Korea. Most Americans don't believe Trump either. What a sad joke the Trump administration is.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/20/asia/south-korea-worries-donald-trump-uss-carl-vinson/index.html

US President Donald Trump said he was sending "an armada" to Korean waters to potentially deal with threats from Pyongyang. But its no-show has caused some South Koreans to question his leadership and strategy regarding their unpredictable neighbor in the north.

And as the country prepares to vote for a new president on May 9, the claim could have far-reaching implications for the two countries' relations.

"What Mr. Trump said was very important for the national security of South Korea," Presidential candidate Hong Joon-pyo told the Wall Street Journal.
"If that was a lie, then during Trump's term, South Korea will not trust whatever Trump says,"&#8203; said Hong, who is currently trailing in the polls.

One newspaper headline called it Trump's "Carl Vinson lie," and speculated that the Russian and Chinese leaders must have had a good laugh at its absence. Meant to present a robust defense against a potential nuclear test by Pyongyang, the report likened the bluff to North Korea's shows of force, where "fake missiles" are paraded through the streets of the North Korean capital.

"Like North Korea, which is often accused of displaying fake missiles during military parades, is the United States, too, now employing 'bluffing' as its North Korea policy?" it asked.

Trump is a total idiot. Did he ever go to school? Did he ever learn any history?

http://www.thedailybeast.com/cheats/2017...;source=copyurl

South Korea on Thursday clarified that it was never a part of China, after President Donald Trump told The Wall Street Journal that Chinese President Xi Jinping told him that “Korea actually used to be a part of China.” Cho June-hyuck, a spokesman for South Korea’s foreign ministry, said “it’s a clear fact acknowledged by the international community that, for thousands of years in history, Korea has never been part of China.” Hong Joon-pyo, a South Korean presidential candidate called the suggestion a “distortion of history” and “an invasion of the Republic of Korea’s sovereignty.” The comment comes amid an already-tenuous relationship between South Korea and China over the U.S.’s deployment of a missile defense system in South Korea in an effort to counter North Korean aggression.

Korea become a tributary state of Manchu in 1637, with its status continuing under the Qing dynasty until 1894. As for why Korea never remained a part of China, it was incredibly difficult to conquer. The Korean peninsula is mountainous, which made it highly defensible.

Trump angers Koreans by saying Korea 'used to be part of China' following history lesson from Xi
by Alex Linder in News on Apr 20, 2017 5:45 pm

While the history of relations between China and Korea is complicated, including a number of wars and invasions, Koreans generally bristle at the thought that they were ever part of China. For centuries, Korea was part of China's tributary system, paying for protection from its giant neighbor, just like many other kingdoms including Vietnam and Thailand. But parts of Korea were very rarely under anything resembling direct Chinese control -- the notable exceptions being when the Han dynasty set up four "commanderies" in the northern part of Korea in the second century BC and when both were put under Mongol rule in the 13th century AD.

It is easy to put something in Trumps head as there is a lot of empty space in there.

http://shanghaiist.com/2017/04/20/trump_says_korea_part_of_china.php

As Trump is not known as an Asian history scholar, Kyung Moon Hwang, a University of South Carolina history professor, has charged Xi Jinping with putting a Chinese nationalist version of Chinese-Korean history into the US president's head. "It’s possible that Xi said something like this, as such a story has been part of the nationalist history project under the Chinese Communist Party for a couple of decades," Hwang told Quartz.

Though Hwang also conceded that Trump could have simply not understood the nuanced points that Xi was trying to make, or the history lesson could also just have been lost in translation.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/turning-a-b...studies/5586228

Under such conditions, it would only require a matter of days or weeks for daily minimum temperatures to fall below freezing in the largest agricultural areas of the Northern Hemisphere, where freezing temperatures would occur every day for a period of between one to more than two years. Average surface temperatures would become colder than those experienced 18,000 years ago at the height of the last Ice Age, and the prolonged cold would cause average rainfall to decrease by up to 90%. Growing seasons would be completely eliminated for more than a decade; it would be too cold and dark to grow food crops, which would doom the majority of the human population.

President-elect Trump and President Putin must publically acknowledge and discuss the peer-reviewed studies that predict a U.S.-Russian nuclear war will likely wipe out most of the human race. All nations and peoples have a vested interest in eliminating the nuclear arsenals that continue to threaten their existence.

This is just another Trump lie he would like you to forget about.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/04/21/politics/donald-trump-voter-fraud-mike-pence/index.html

The White House does not have any immediate timeline for President Donald Trump's voter fraud investigation and the commission he was adamant about creating during his first few weeks in office, even as the administration approaches the end of its 100 days.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer told CNN that he expects something on the commission within the "next week or two, but I don't want to get ahead of that."

Spicer said there would not be an executive order (as the President originally wanted) and in lieu of that there would be a commission headed up by Vice President Mike Pence. Spicer did say that the vice president will still be "very involved" in the investigation.

Another senior administration official said that the formation of the commission "has not been a topic of a lot of conversation" in the White House, and said it was not something discussed recently with the vice president either.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/21/news/trump-executive-order-taxes/index.html

A top priority for the Trump administration has been to drive economic growth through tax reform and loosening regulations.

Regulators' emergency authority in the 2010 law has been a ripe target for the administration, because its repeal could have an impact on the federal budget. The Congressional Budget Office has said eliminating the regulation would create $15.2 billion in budget savings.

Sherrod Brown, the top Democrat on the Senate Banking Committee, warned against potential rollbacks.

"Any actions to undermine these protections encourage Wall Street's risky behavior and leave taxpayers and our economy exposed to another catastrophe," Brown said.


Former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker earlier this week expressed disbelief over the GOP's attacks on the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.'s power to unwind a failing firm.

"I don't understand why?" Volcker, who is now chairman of the Volcker Alliance, said Wednesday at the Bretton Woods Committee meeting. "Is it because you don't trust the FDIC? That you're willing to take the risk. I don't understand why this is important."

A spokeswoman for the FDIC declined to comment.

President Donald Trump is complaining that a deadline he set for himself for various policy plans is unfair.

Trump’s first 100 days in office ends April 29, and critics have pointed out that he has yet to achieve many key goals. The president responded to such criticism on Friday by calling the benchmark a “ridiculous standard,” even though he personally touted the deadline for months.

Shortly before the election, he laid out his plan for his first 100 days, including two of his biggest campaign promises: building a wall along the Mexican border and repealing the Affordable Care Act. He has yet to fulfill either commitment.

NO AVOIDING IT

If Donald Trump Fights North Korea, We All Do. You don’t want war with North Korea. But do you want Kim Jong Un to be sitting on a warhead that can take out Chicago? That’s probably the choice.

North Korea has played its pair of twos better than any other county in history. To reclaim the upper hand, we have to stop their nuclear weapons program. If we use force to do so, we must be ready to go the distance. I am not advocating for total war with the DPRK, but I am pointing out that this horrific outcome is becoming increasingly likely and, if it comes, will involve millions of troops, thousands of pieces of artillery and missiles, hundreds of aircraft and ships, and, cost tens of thousands of casualties and untold amounts of treasure.

LOL. Ya Mexico is going to the wall that is never going to get built.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/04/25/news/economy/mexico-us-wto-tuna/index.html

The US just lost a trade battle with Mexico. It's the first loss of the Trump era.

Mexico and the US have fought for years over tuna. The US insists that any Mexican tuna sold in the US must be "dolphin safe," meaning dolphins weren't killed by tuna fisherman, which was once common. Mexico says its fisherman play by the rules. The US government disagrees.

On Tuesday, the World Trade Organization ruled in Mexico's favor, allowing it to impose trade sanctions worth $163 million a year against the US. The WTO says that's how much money Mexico has lost from the US unfairly penalizing Mexican tuna.

The timing, however coincidental, is sensitive. President Trump wants to renegotiate NAFTA, the free trade agreement between the US, Mexico and Canada.

Trump's administration took its first steps to crack down on trade with Canada on Monday night when the Commerce Department announced a 20% tariff against Canadian softwood lumber. A war of words between Canadian and American leaders has followed.

Trump's decision to go after Canada first with tariffs was particularly surprising given his harsh criticism of Mexico on the campaign trail. Now Trump has upset Canada and suffered a trade defeat from Mexico.

Mexican officials insisted for years that US laws discriminated against their tuna, and that other countries didn't face the same level of enforcement. They argued that they have upheld international standards on commercial fishing and environmental preservation.

Tuesday's ruling by the WTO ends a case that was first filed by Mexico in 2008.

Mexico's economic ministry said it would immediately take actions to reclaim the $163 million the WTO said it had lost from the US restrictions. It didn't say whether its retaliatory actions would be tariffs on US tuna or another product.

Brilliant Cartoon Sums Up Trump’s Foreign Policy Revolution

WASHINGTON &#8213; For decades, the United States has worked with other countries to eliminate nepotism. There’s a good reason for that: Nepotism breeds corruption.

“You’ve seen it in countries all over the world where they’ve appointed family members, whether it’s their son, daughter, in-laws — it provides for tremendous opportunities for corruption,” said Shruti Shah, an international anti-corruption expert at Coalition for Integrity, a good-government nonprofit. “People who want to curry favor find their way to provide favors to family members as a way to get closer to the person in power.”

But President Donald Trump, who has entrusted more power to his family members than any recent president, puts that agenda at risk. “I like nepotism,” Trump told Larry King in 2006, the year he replaced his “Apprentice” costar, Trump company executive Carolyn Kepcher, with his daughter Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, hold broad portfolios at the White House that include everything from diplomacy with China, the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, women’s issues, cybersecurity and reinventing government.

They determine who else has power in the Trump administration. Trump sidelined Steve Bannon, a close adviser, after he butted up against his daughter and adviser-in-law, and he elevated former Goldman Sachs employees Gary Cohn and Dina Powell based in part on their friendly relationships with Ivanka and her husband. And the couple act as presidential emissaries, with Kushner traveling to Iraq at the suggestion of the Pentagon and Ivanka heading to Germany.

Mark Davis
The Best “First 100” Of My Lifetime

I had to spend some reflective moments before saying this out loud-- the notion that these first 100 days of Donald Trump’s presidency are the best opening 14 weeks of any presidency since I’ve been alive.

I’m not eighty, but I’m not thirty, either. I was born in the year of Dwight Eisenhower’s second inauguration, 1957. So, presuming my choices will be culled from Republican presidents, my choices are Nixon, Reagan, both Bushes and Trump. The ascendancy of Gerald Ford, splashed across our history in the messy wake of Watergate, did not exactly unfold with the kind of initiatory agenda that freshly elected Presidents get.

So, since I carry the proper conservative veneration of the Reagan years, the only real hurdle is: have Trump’s first 100 days been even better than Reagan’s?

Let’s stipulate that if, once Donald Trump’s presidential service is over, he deserves to be mentioned in the same sentence as Reagan, we will have been blessed indeed. That’s not today’s question. Awash in “100 Days” mania, the exercise of the moment is a detailed look at only that period of presidential history. So the apples-and-apples comparison is January 20 through the end of April, 1981 versus now.

Reagan steps up to the plate with a leadoff grand slam-- the release of our hostages from Iran on Inauguration Day, as Iranian mullahs sensed that the days of a weak American presidency were over.

The end of the malaise-ridden Jimmy Carter era ushered in other improvements immediately. The mere aura of a President who intended to rebuild our military and show strength to the world was invigorating, even before specific agenda items were unpacked.


Once they were, from tax cuts to regulatory reform, it became clear that Reagan’s intent was to begin the task of dismantling the ruinous depression-era New Deal instincts FDR had hatched in order to usher in a new era of expansionist, collectivist government.

I was in my early twenties, and it felt great. Optimism abounded as Reagan set up shop for a whole new system of how the individual would interact with the state.

Then, on his 69th day, he was shot. But the vigorous new President, even at age 70, recovered in time to address a joint session of Congress before his first 100 days elapsed. How in the world could anyone top that?

For drama, it seems impossible. But the best 100 days comparisons involve policies rather than unexpected traumas, no matter how compelling. So, with proper homage to every magnificent day of the Reagan presidency, here is why Trump’s first 100 days are my lifetime favorite:

While historians and policy wonks properly examine everything he has said and not said, and done and not done, I begin with a glorious truth that is draped around every day of the new Trump presidency: Hillary Clinton is not President.

So this counts? Trump starts to amass 100 Days points just by not being Hillary? He absolutely does. Look at the bullets we dodge with each passing hour because he attracted a coalition that prevented her victory—additional years of a sluggish economy, unreliable global leadership, the guarantee of more years of disastrous spending, a parade of activist tyrants in judicial robes— whatever kind of President Trump will be, it is instantly light-years better than the fate we could be enduring had November 8 gone differently.


But the sharpest focus of his 100 days arrives with the list of things he has changed simply by occupying the office. At no point was he the most conservative candidate on any 2016 debate stage, yet the metaphoric stage is now set for conservative results that were just recently the stuff of dreams.

Borders mean something again, and America is actually going to pay attention to who enters the nation, and keep track of them once they are here.

Job creation is again a major focus of economic policy, promising growth that finally provides some progress out of our abyss of debt. Tax reform gives businesses and individuals hope that they will no longer be punished for success.

Terrorists and tyrants the world over have already been served notice that the years of “leading from behind” are over. Our allies know they can rely on us, and our enemies know they should not underestimate us.

Our military can swell with pride under a Commander-in-Chief that has their backs, supporting them in sincere spirit and with the nuts-and-bolts promise of refurbished aircraft and expanded naval fleets.

Americans sick of seeing their faith mocked and sidelined will enjoy a President who will blast through the political correctness that is the foremost enemy of Judeo-Christian belief.


The regulatory state, which strangles job creation, hamstrings banks and shackles individual initiative, is on its way to a long-deserved dismantling.

Our energy policy once again embraces American energy sources, from cleaner coal to new oil technologies to natural gas. Renewables and alternative options will be welcome, but gone are the days when they are force-fed to us by activist politicians hostile to human productivity.

Sanity has returned to the climate debate. The junk science of presumed man-made global warming will wither under the harsh light of proper scrutiny, but there is good news for all: we will be good stewards of the planet because it is the right thing to do, not because Al Gore thinks the oceans will soon swallow Miami.

Has there been a legislative stubbed toe on one of the main Trump agenda items? There has, and the next flight of Obamacare repeal needs to go better than the launch pad explosion we went through last month. But does anyone doubt that the result will be infinitely superior to the dark prospects we would have faced under Hillary Clinton?


And to return to Mrs. Clinton for just one more thing-- If there is one item that nudges the Trump 100 days to the top of my lifetime list, it is the outright rescue of our Republic by a Supreme Court justice who could spend the next three or four decades weighing cases not on personal or political whim, but on constitutional precepts.

Every other item I’ve mentioned is a work in progress. The Trump agenda that unfolds in the coming years will contain twists, turns, and some measures of successes and failures. But Neil Gorsuch is there now, standing guard every day against the tyrannical nonsense of the type that tells a sitting President he cannot enact a travel ban or withhold funding from sanctuary cities.

Imagine one, two, or three justices on the Supreme Court, twisting the rule of law into a pretzel of political mischief. This is the barrel we would be staring down if Hillary Clinton had won.

So accordingly, yes, part of my constant joy in these 100 days of Trump is the frequent revisitation of how blessed we are that he has rescued us from her clutches.

Make no mistake. The Reagan years are my gold standard for the presidency. My loftiest dreams hesitate to dare to imagine holding Trump in the same regard come January 2025.

But who knows?

Here’s what we do know. For all the relief and vigor we felt in Reagan’s first 100 days, it was a fortunate rebound from the ineptitude of Jimmy Carter. Trump’s victory is an opportunity to dig out of a far deeper and darker hole. In 2016, with our image around the world eroded, our economy depressed, our debt exploding and our constitution bludgeoned, America had an opportunity to invite further doses of the same poisons, or save ourselves.

Thank God in heaven, we did it. And on every one of these first 100 days of Trump-- complete with the occasional misstep, the occasional exaggeration, the occasional brushfire-- there is cause for celebration, and a sound basis for claiming this administration’s rollout as my favorite, ever.

Trump’s Tax Proposal Would Be Ridiculously Good For Rich People

WASHINGTON &#8213; President Donald Trump’s top economic advisers on Wednesday proposed trillions of dollars in tax cuts for millionaires under a plan billed as the biggest tax reform in over 30 years.

In a one-page statement of “principles” for tax reform provided to reporters, the administration offered few specifics. They did insist on three major perks for the wealthy, however &#8213; reducing the tax rate on stocks, bonds and real estate investments; eliminating inheritance taxes for millionaire heirs and heiresses; and bringing down the tax rate on the largest corporations to less than half of what it is now.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/more-america...ease-them-poll/

More Americans think Donald Trump will increase their taxes rather than decrease them – though Democrats are most likely to say this.

Fifty-three percent of Americans want Donald Trump and Congress to move on to other issues rather than try to pass another health care bill.

While just 12 percent of Americans think the Affordable Care Act is working perfectly, most - 61 percent - say it needs changes rather than complete repeal. Only 24 percent of Americans think Obamacare needs to be completely replaced.

Americans are skeptical of President Trump so far on wholesale reform of the federal tax code. Though Mr. Trump offered large tax cuts for both businesses and the middle class as a candidate, more Americans (38 percent) think Donald Trump will increase their taxes rather than decrease them (25 percent), particularly those earning under $100,000 a year. Thirty-three percent do not think their taxes will change much either way.

Trump's Biggest Achievement in His 1st 100 Days? Stopping the Left
Larry Elder



President Donald Trump's biggest achievement in his first 100 days? Easy. He stopped the left.
Measure Trump's first 100 days not just by looking at what he has or has not accomplished. Look at what America would have experienced under the alternative: Hillary Clinton.

Under Clinton, the debate would not be on how to replace Obamacare, but how quickly can the left realize its ultimate ambition, a Canadian-style, single-payer system. Under Clinton, the issue would not be how steep the tax cuts, but how many "rich" people, also known as job creators, would experience yet another growth-restricting tax hike.

Under Clinton, the $100 billion-plus annually in new regulations imposed by President Barack Obama -- much of it to fight "climate change" -- would continue to rise. This has stopped. President Trump signed an executive order that requires an elimination of two regulations for every new regulation proposed by an executive department or agency in 2017, with a zero-dollar net increase in the cost of regulations.

Under Clinton, newly confirmed conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch would've been another Ruth Bader Ginsburg/Sonia Sotomayor/Elena Kagan clone. Four left-wing SCOTUS justices, in the Heller case, ruled that there is not an individual right to keep and bear arms. Spare us a fifth one.

Trump, too, has put the left-wing media on notice. No more Mr. Nice Guy. Through WikiLeaks, we found that John Harwood, a debate moderator, emailed a letter to Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, bragging about a question he had put to Donald Trump. He also emailed advice on dealing with the challenge posed by Dr. Ben Carson. Staffers for newsmen Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer of CNN contacted the Democratic National Committee to seek questions they might put to Republican presidential candidates. There were many other examples of flat-out collusion, well beyond the liberal bias we've come to expect.



President Trump also changed eight years of Obama's "leading from behind" foreign policy by using our largest non-nuclear bomb on ISIS in Afghanistan and bombing Syria for its use of chemical weapons. Under Obama, we pulled out all the troops from Iraq, despite the objections of his foreign policy and national security and defense teams. One of the members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, now-retired Army Gen. Ray Odierno, said: "I go back to the work we did in 2007 (through) 2010, and we got into a place that was really good. Violence was low, the economy was growing, politics looked like it was heading in the right direction. ... We thought we had it going exactly in the right direction, but now we watch it fall apart. It's frustrating. ... I think, maybe, if we had stayed a little more engaged, I think maybe it might have prevented it."

Under Obama, we bombed Libya, a mission that the Obama administration admitted was done for humanitarian reasons. Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi had paid reparations for the terrorist explosion of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. And following the American-led invasion of Iraq, Gadhafi had surrendered his weapons of mass destruction to the U.S. Yet under President Obama, America joined the French and British in bombing Libya to rid the country of Gadhafi. Incredibly, after criticizing President George W. Bush for not thinking through the invasion of Iraq, when Obama was asked what he thought was the "biggest mistake" of his presidency, Obama said, "Probably failing to plan for the day after what I think was the right thing to do in intervening in Libya."


For the most part, President Trump has delivered on his promises, or has attempted to deliver on them.

Take immigration. While the wall construction has not begun, nor has Trump been able to figure out a way to get Mexico to pay for it, a psychological wall has already gone up. Border-crossing apprehensions were down more than 60 percent from January to March, after Trump made it clear the welcome mat for illegal entry has been rolled up.

As for the so-called "failure" to repeal and replace Obamacare, businesspeople nevertheless have confidence that whatever emerges will be less expensive, less onerous and less intrusive than what they would have faced under a President Hillary Clinton.

Ultimately, Trump will likely be judged on one thing -- the economy. If he manages a 4 percent GDP growth, as promised during the campaign, few will care about his nocturnal tweets.

After 100 days of Trump, the earth did not open up and swallow America. His critics can crawl out from under the bed. The stock market has hit record highs; small-business and consumer confidence polls show optimism in levels not seen anywhere from 10 to nearly 40 years, depending upon the poll. Something is happening.


When Ronald Reagan died, George Will wrote: "Today Americans gratefully recall that at a turbulent moment in their national epic, Reagan became the great reassurer, the steadying captain of our clipper ship. He calmed the passengers -- and the sea."

It's not too soon to wonder whether someday something similar might be said of President Trump.

Trumps tax plan eliminates the alternative minimum tax(AMT). We have only seen two pages of his 2005 income tax. But eliminating the AMT would of saved him 30 million dollars that year alone! Is there any wonder he doesn't want to release other years? Plus who knows what they will show about his Russian connections.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin can't guarantee middle class wouldn't pay more under tax plan

Experts interviewed by ABC News Wednesday largely agreed that the proposed tax cuts would significantly reduce federal revenue and balloon the federal deficit. One analysis, by the bi-partisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, estimates that Trump’s tax plan would cost anywhere between $3 trillion and $7 trillion in lost revenue over the next decade.

The world was dumbfounded by the election of Donald Trump, and his first 100 days in office have done little to alleviate a deep sense of uncertainty and unpredictability. Indeed, as one observer put it, the last few weeks alone have caused a severe case of global geostrategic whiplash.

The number of campaign promises that have morphed into presidential U-turns is staggering. Allies and adversaries alike are trying to figure out whether a Trump Doctrine is emerging, or whether, as former CIA Director Michael Hayden recently told me, a discernible doctrine does not exist in what resembles a family-run business of policy from the White House.

National security adviser H.R. McMaster "has hired a very bright woman to write the US National Security Strategy," he said. "It's a tough job. I did it twice for George H.W. Bush. But I was building on precedent and historic consensus. It's really going to be interesting to see what an America First national security strategy looks like when you've got to write it down."

Thousands of State Department Employees Could Be Out of a Job

The State Department is reportedly set to get a lot leaner soon if a proposal to cut 2,300 jobs ends up going through, which would be an important part of President Donald Trump’s campaign promise to put the bloated federal government on a diet.

What’s going on? The Associated Press reported:

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is proposing to eliminate 2,300 jobs as part of a plan to cut more than a quarter of the State Department’s budget for the next fiscal year, officials said Friday. The plan will almost certainly meet resistance from lawmakers opposing President Donald Trump’s proposal to shrink the size of the federal government.

Tillerson’s proposal reduces the number of new diplomats being hired and includes the State Department and U.S. Agency for International Development’s possible consolidation, according to officials briefed on the proposal. The staff cuts would amount to about 3 percent of the department’s roughly 75,000-strong workforce.

Franklin D. Roosevelt got more done in his first 100 days in office than any president before him or any since. He took office in the depths of the Great Depression, enacting a dizzying number of laws and signing executive orders to stabilize the economy with the New Deal.

Roosevelt is the reason people focus on the first 100 days. When presidents take office, they have the most political capital to enact their agenda. Studies have found that it's the most productive time for legislative action.

Of course, presidents don't have total control over their time in office. Ronald Reagan was shot during his first 100 days and spent the last month in the hospital. Bill Clinton's first months were distracted by the controversial "don't ask, don't tell" military policy, then the fatal raid in Waco, Texas. George W. Bush bombed Iraq, and Barack Obama had to save Captain Richard Phillips from Somali pirates.

Donald Trump's 100th day in office is Saturday. How has his tenure compared with that of the last three presidents?

President Trump’s Bully Mentality

President Trump’s first days in office were alarming for several reasons. He immediately began attacking the press, while intentionally stating falsehoods such as he would have won the popular vote, but for “3 to 5 million” fraudulent votes. Or, maybe they weren’t intentional falsehoods? Since most of those falsehoods are easily debunked, such as the size of the crowds at Friday’s Inauguration and Saturday women’s march.

Then you have the CIA meeting, where he stated that it was the lying media that made up his dispute with the intelligence community, whereas it is easy to check Trump’s speeches and Twitter messages for all to see he was the one that criticized the intelligence community for their findings that Vladimir Putin’s intelligence services wanted him elected.

So could it be that he is delusional, the words of Mother Jones’ David Corn? Or is it possible that he only listens to news from the likes of Breitbart, The National Inquirer, Fox, and Russ Limbaugh that cater to his voters, not the mass media that reports to the rest of US?

No, it is far more likely that he believes his success in business, such as it is, was due to his bullying tactics, tactics that browbeat investors and lenders to such an extent that he can no longer rely on U.S. investors and banks to finance his projects. So he doesn’t care—and may even have contempt for—facts or truths or any kind that don’t further his agenda.

A New York Times reporter on Lawrence O-Donnell’s MSNBC Last Word said it reminded her of the behavior of dictators, such as the current Russian and Chinese autocrats who considered all news as grist for their propaganda mills.

I have written about the bully mentality several times that has led to increased bullying in school, and even gun violence. It is a mentality that attempts to impose a bully’s version of reality on the real world for the sole purpose of domination. President Trump has always acted the bully, which is the reason for his history of lawsuits and bankruptcies, so that facts are only useful in so much as they support his positions.


Evidence of Trump’s bullying tactics also comes from his words on Twitter and elsewhere, reports Groff Beattle, a professor of Psychology at Edge Hill University who specializes in gestures, has discussed how Trump uses the body language and mannerisms of a bully, such as the exaggerated use of his hands.

Donald Trump Calls Kim Jong Un A ‘Smart Cookie’
It’s not the first time the president has praised a vicious dictator.

President Donald Trump this weekend called North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a “smart cookie” in his latest praise of a controversial dictator.

“He was a young man of 26 or 27 when he took over from his father, when his father died. He’s dealing with obviously very tough people,” Trump told CBS’ John Dickerson in an interview that aired on Sunday’s episode of “Face the Nation.”

“A lot of people, I’m sure, tried to take that power away, whether it was his uncle or anybody else,” Trump continued. “And he was able to do it, so obviously, he’s a pretty smart cookie.”

Kim isn’t the only strongman Trump has praised. He called Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo&#287;an to congratulate him on his recent electoral win, despite concerns that it may have been rigged. He also on Saturday invited Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte to visit the White House. Duterte, who has said he doesn’t care about human rights, is accused of ordering extrajudicial killings on thousands of people.

Most prominently, Trump is often criticized over his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is said to have ordered hackers to interfere in the U.S. election in order to help Trump win. Several members of the Trump campaign, included Secretary of State Jeff Sessions and embattled former national security adviser Michael Flynn, are accused of having improper contact with the Kremlin.

'Most Fact-Challenged Politician Ever' Trump Asks Why Civil War Happened

'UMMM... SLAVERY'

by Nadia Prupis, staff writer
Common Dreams

Monday, May 01, 2017


President Donald Trump is officially the most "fact-challenged" politician that the Washington Post's Fact Checker has ever encountered, columnists Glenn Kessler and Michelle Ye Hee Lee reported Monday, just hours before the president claimed in a radio interview that "people don't ask" why the Civil War happened.

In his first 100 days in office, they report, Trump has made 488 false or misleading claims—an average of 4.9 a day; gone no more than 10 days, counting six on a golfing vacation, without a single false claim; and made 20 or more false claims on four separate days.

His falsehoods ranged from taking credit for the January jobs report that showed the U.S. had created 216,000 new jobs, even though the data came from before he took office, to claiming the "failing" New York Times "had to" apologize to its readers for the coverage they gave him. It isn't, and it didn't.

Even the statement "We are keeping one promise after another," which Trump said during a Pennsylvania rally to mark his 100 days, was a lie, the Post noted, in that he has broken five of his campaign pledges and taken no action on more than half of the others—perhaps most notably his vow to "drain the swamp" of corporate interests, which he has followed up on by appointing CEOs, bankers, and lobbyists to crucial White House positions.

The Post's tally came just before the Washington Examiner published an excerpt of an upcoming interview between Trump and Examiner journalist Salena Zito for Sirius XM's "POTUS" station in which the president called seventh U.S. President Andrew Jackson a "swashbuckler" and asked why there was a Civil War.

Trump said of the slave-owning president who signed the Indian Removal Act and died 16 years before the war began in 1861, "He was a very tough person, but he had a big heart. And he was really angry that—he saw what was happening with regard to the Civil War. He said, 'There's no reason for this.' People don't realize, you know, the Civil War—if you think about it, why? People don't ask that question, but why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?"

The comments unsurprisingly drew condemnation and outrage.

"President Trump doesn't understand why there was a Civil war," Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) tweeted. "It's because my ancestors and millions of others were enslaved."

Symone D. Sanders, a CNN political commentator and former national press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), tweeted, "UMMM... SLAVERY. The thing southern states were most concerned about in 1861 was the right to perpetuate slavery."

Times journalist Binyamin Appelbaum added, "I'm excited for next year when Trump finds out about the American Revolution. Wait, there was a king?"

The Post's tally was published just days after a slew of progressive watchdogs released their own "100 days" reports finding that as the Trump administration cracks down on human rights and environmental protections, it is simultaneously awakening a "golden era" of activism.

Historian Timothy Snyder: “It’s pretty much inevitable” that Trump will try to stage a coup and overthrow democracy

Yale historian and author of the new book "On Tyranny" says we may have one year left to save American democracy



American democracy is in crisis. The election of Donald Trump feels like a state of emergency made normal.

Trump has threatened violence against his political enemies. He has made clear he does not believe in the norms and traditions of American democracy — unless they serve his interests. Trump and his advisers consider a free press to be enemies of his regime. Trump repeatedly lies and has a profoundly estranged relationship with empirical reality. He uses obvious and naked racism, nativism and bigotry to mobilize his voters and to disparage entire groups of people such as Latinos and Muslims.

Trump is threatening to eliminate an independent judiciary and wants to punish judges who dare to stand against his illegal and unconstitutional mandates. In what appears to be a violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution, Trump is using the office of the presidency to enrich himself, his family and his inner circle by peddling influence and access to corporations, foreign countries and wealthy individuals. Trump and his representatives also believe that he is above the law and cannot be prosecuted for any crimes while in office.

What can the American people do to resist Donald Trump? What lessons can history teach about the rise of authoritarianism and fascism and how democracies collapse? Are there ways that individuals can fight back on a daily basis and in their own personal lives against the political and cultural forces that gave rise to Trump’s movement? How long does American democracy have before the poison that Donald Trump and the Republican Party injected into the country’s body politic becomes lethal?

In an effort to answer these questions, I recently spoke with Timothy Snyder, a professor of history at Yale University. He is the award-winning author of numerous books including the recent “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning” and “Bloodlands: Europe Between Hitler and Stalin.” Snyder’s new book, “On Tyranny: Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century,” explores how the American people can fight back against Donald Trump’s incipient authoritarian regime.

Our conversation has been edited for length and clarity. A longer version can be heard on my podcast, available on Salon’s Featured Audio page.

The election of Donald Trump is a crisis for American democracy. How did this happen?

We asked for it by saying that history was over in 1989 [with the end of the Cold War]. By saying that nothing bad could [ever] happen again, we were basically inviting something bad to happen.

Our story about how nothing could [ever] go wrong was a story about how human nature is the free market and the free market brings democracy, so everything is hunky-dory — and of course every part of that story is nonsense. The Greeks understood that democracy is likely to produce oligarchy because if you don’t have some mechanism to get inequality under control then people with the most money will likely take full control.

With Trump, one sees the new variant of this where a candidate can run by saying, “Look, we all know — wink, wink, nudge, nudge — that this isn’t really a democracy anymore.” He doesn’t use the words but basically says, “We all know this is really an oligarchy, so let me be your oligarch.” Although it’s nonsense and of course he’s a con man and will betray everyone, it makes sense only in this climate of inequality.

In my writing and interviews, I have consistently referred to Donald Trump as a fascist. I have received a great deal of resistance to that claim. Do you think this description is correct? If not, then what language should we use to describe Donald Trump?
Advertisement

One of the problems with American discourse is that we just assume everybody is a friendly democratic parliamentarian pluralist until proven otherwise. And then even when it’s proven otherwise we don’t have any vocabulary for it. He’s a “dictator.” He’s an “authoritarian.” He’s “Hitler.” We just toss these words around.

The pushback that you are talking about is 95 percent bad. Americans do not want to think that there is an alternative to what we have. Therefore, as soon as you say “fascism” or whatever it might be, then the American response is to say “no” because we lack the categories that allow us to think outside of the box that we are no longer in.

Is this a function of American exceptionalism?

Yes, it is. We made a move towards intellectual isolationism in a world where no kind of isolationism is possible. The fact that democracies usually fail is a rule which can’t apply to us. If you examine American society, there are high points and low points. But there is certainly nothing which puts us in a different category than other people who have failed, whether it’s historically or whether it’s now.

I don’t want to dodge your question about whether Trump is a fascist or not. As I see it, there are certainly elements of his approach which are fascistic. The straight-on confrontation with the truth is at the center of the fascist worldview. The attempt to undo the Enlightenment as a way to undo institutions, that is fascism.

Whether he realizes it or not is a different question, but that’s what fascists did. They said, “Don’t worry about the facts; don’t worry about logic. Think instead in terms of mystical unities and direct connections between the mystical leader and the people.” That’s fascism. Whether we see it or not, whether we like it or not, whether we forget, that is fascism.

Another thing that’s clearly fascist about Trump were the rallies. The way that he used the language, the blunt repetitions, the naming of the enemies, the physical removal of opponents from rallies, that was really, without exaggeration, just like the 1920s and the 1930s.

And Mr. [Steve] Bannon’s preoccupation with the 1930s and his kind of wishful reclamation of Italian and other fascists speaks for itself.

How did the news media and others get this so wrong? Why did they underestimate the threat posed by Donald Trump and his movement?

What we ended up with, from Bill Clinton onward, is a status quo party and an “undo the system” party, where the Democrats became the status quo party and the Republicans became the “undo the system” party. In that constellation it’s very hard to think of change because one party is in favor of things being the way they are, just slightly better, and the other party has this big idea of undoing everything, although it’s unclear what that really means in practice. So no one is actually articulating how you address the problems of the day, the greatest of which would be inequality. When neither party is creative, then it’s hard for scholars to get their ideas into meaningful circulation.

Why is Trump not being held accountable for all of his failures, scandals and incompetence?

Mr. Trump is primarily a television personality. As such, he is judged by that standard. This means that a scandal does not call forth a response; it calls forth the desire for a bigger scandal. It just whets the appetite for a bigger scandal because a television serial has to work on that logic. It’s almost as though he has to produce these outrageous things because what else would he be doing?

President Donald Trump’s comments praising North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un are “very disturbing,” Sen. John McCain said Tuesday, because they undermine America’s moral authority around the world and pull the nation away from the principles that made it a superpower.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 05/02/17 06:31 PM

GOP Sen. John McCain of Arizona complained about President Donald Trump’s “disturbing” praise of dictators Tuesday.

During an interview on MSNBC, McCain said that Trump’s friendly words toward dictators is “very disturbing … because we’re proud Republicans, and we stand for human rights,” The Washington Times reports.

“I don’t understand it, and I don’t think that the president appreciates the fact that when he says things like that, it helps the credibility and prestige of this really outrageous strongman,” McCain said.

“I wish the president would consider much more carefully his comments,” McCain added, speaking to Trump’s way of referring to leaders like Kim Jong-un in North Korea and Vladimir Putin in Russia.

Try convincing the politically wrongheaded conclusions to these off the chain rabid dogs...not me.

Neo-Nazis

Rocky J. Suhayda

Chair of the American Nazi Party


Endorsement: "We have a wonderful OPPORTUNITY here folks, that may never come again, at the RIGHT time," Suhayda wrote to Nazi party members in September 2015. "Donald Trump's campaign statements, if nothing else, have SHOWN that 'our views' are NOT so 'unpopular' as the Political Correctness crowd have told everyone they are!"

In his own words: "In 1952 when I was born, America was a 92% White/European nation—the system controlled media now gloats that there are presently MORE non-White children being born here than White! That in possibly TEN YEARS—White people will be a MINORITY in their own land, due to birthrates and ILLEGAL immigration!" Suhayda wrote in 2015.


Andrew Anglin

Publisher of the neo-Nazi website the Daily Stormer


Endorsement: "Trump is willing to say what most Americans think: it's time to deport these people," Anglin said in a June 2015 endorsement. "He is also willing to call them out as criminal rapists, murderers and drug dealers."

In his own words: During the Republican Convention in July, Anglin wrote, "The biggest story in the filthy kike media has been a few lines from Melania's speech which these Jews claim she stole from monkey Michelle. It is absolutely sickening the way these Christ-killing monsters go after this woman, demonstrating their hatred for the beauty of the Aryan woman."
"Only Trump can turn back the brown tide, and thinking Whites know this," wrote a neo-Nazi supporter in February. "Is Trump the ideal man? Nope, but he'll do until the ideal man gets here."

Alex Linder/Vanguard News Network

Founder of the website Vanguard News Network, and a former member of the National Alliance, a neo-Nazi group

Endorsement: "Only Trump can turn back the brown tide, and thinking Whites know this," stated a VNN post in February 2016. "Is Trump the ideal man? Nope, but he'll do until the ideal man gets here." VNN has also described Trump as "the Last Hope for Whites Before America Turns Brown and Non-Western."

In his own words: "'African-American' is pretty for 'jungle savage,'" Alex Linder wrote in 2005 in The Aryan Alternative. "We normal whites move away from these jungle creatures whenever we can. But the murderous hands of government, guided by Big Jew, again and again and again push us back in with the savages."


Ku Klux Klan-affiliated

Don Black

Former KKK grand dragon and founder of the white supremacist website Stormfront


Endorsement: In an October 2015 interview with New York, Black said Trump "resonates with many of our people, of course, and with white, middle America, which has been seething for many years now about the immigration issue. It's been ready to boil over for a long time."

In his own words: "Hitler, of course, has been demonized because he lost," Black told Business Insider.
"I will always hate the Jew. This government is run by an evil group of people, and, please, vote for Trump!"

August Kreis III

Former KKK member and former Aryan Nations Minister of Information and Propaganda


Endorsement: Kreis praised Trump publicly in the courtroom during his November 2015 trial for sexual misconduct with a child: "I will always hate the Jew. This government is run by an evil group of people, and, please, vote for Trump!" (He was convicted and sentenced to 50 years.)

In his own words: "ALL that dance to the tune of the jew [sic] should and will be exterminated with the jew!" Kreis once wrote on the Aryan Nations website.


Rachel Pendergraft

National organizer for the KKK-affiliated Knights Party


Endorsement: In a December 2015 Washington Post interview, Pendergraft said for the first time that Knights Party members were behind Trump: "They like the overall momentum of his rallies and his campaign…They like that he's not willing to back down. He says what he believes and he stands on that."

In her own words: "White people are realizing they are becoming strangers in their own country and they do not have a major political voice speaking for them," Pendergraft wrote in an email responding to questions for this article. "Trump is one example of the alternative-right candidate Knights Party members and supporters have been looking for."

Militia-affiliated

David Riden

Constitutionalist and militia sympathizer


Endorsement: In April, Riden, who told Mother Jones he has ties to a Tennessee militia, was elected as a Trump delegate.

In his own words: Riden took part in a "Continental Congress" in 2009 that called for abolishing all federal firearms laws and replacing the Department of Homeland Security with citizen militias. He told Mother Jones that government officials who violate the Constitution should be, "the polite word is, eliminated. The harsh word is killed. And they're killed by American citizens with weapons." (In a follow-up interview, Riden walked back these comments; he said he was describing the vision of the Founding Fathers and that he does not advocate violence against current US officials.)


Jon Ritzheimer

Anti-Islam activist, awaiting sentencing on a federal felony charge related to involvement in the Oregon occupation


Endorsement: Last December, Ritzheimer showed up with a bullhorn at a Trump rally in Arizona, where he expressed strong support for the candidate's proposal "to stop Islamic immigration for a while." He also referred to anti-Trump protesters as "Muslims" and thanked them "for not blowing us up."

In his own words: Ritzheimer said in an online video (since removed), "Just know that we three percent, we militiamen, are standing at the ready across our nation. And when you strike, we will strike back. We will level and demolish every mosque across this country."
"Our people just needed a viable candidate, and they've identified Trump as that man."

Gerald DeLemus

Chief of security for Cliven Bundy at the Bundy Ranch standoff; pleaded guilty to two related federal charges

Endorsement: DeLemus was named co-chair of Veterans for Trump in New Hampshire in July 2015. Before his arrest, DeLemus told Reuters he intended to debrief Trump about the Oregon standoff: "I think it'll really arouse him."

In his own words: In 2013, DeLemus posted in an online forum, "If we do not stand against this insanity we can be sure we will fully slip into tyranny. We are in a similar position our Founding Fathers found themselves in, and their decision to stand was equally difficult."


Blaine Cooper

Participant in Oregon standoff; pleaded guilty to multiple federal charges related to the standoffs in Oregon and Nevada

Endorsement: "At least Donald Trump is offering a solution," he wrote on Facebook in June. "I know who gets my vote."

In his own words: Earlier this year, Cooper posted a video of himself on Facebook in which he said, "I'm serving [the country] the way that it should be served. Defending the Constitution from all enemies both foreign and domestic. And the [Bureau of Land Management] is definitely a domestic enemy of the Constitution of the United States."


Michele Fiore

Former Nevada legislator, an advocate for the occupiers in the standoffs in Nevada and Oregon

Endorsement: "If Trump becomes our nominee I will be his biggest fighter," she wrote on her website in May.

In her own words: Following the Paris terrorist attacks, Fiore stated on her weekend radio show, "I am not okay with Syrian refugees. I am not okay with terrorists. I'm okay with putting them down—blacking them out. Just put a piece of brass in their ocular cavity and end their miserable life." (Fiore later clarified that she was referring only to terrorists, not refugees, when she advocated shooting them.)

White nationalism

Peter Brimelow

Founder of the white nationalist website VDARE.com

Endorsement: "They are stunning!" Brimelow said of Trump's immigration policies in an August 2015 podcast. "This is the most explicit any presidential candidate has ever been."

In his own words: "If [a new political party] did become an explicitly white nationalist party it seems to me that would be a perfectly legitimate response to the immigration-driven ethnic shift and the rise of ethno-centric politics on the part of the minorities," Brimelow wrote on VDARE.com.
"Can you imagine a world in which White Nationalists have come out of the closet, the charge of 'racism' elicits only a 'meh' and shrugged shoulders, and we have begun to openly organize?"

James Edwards

White nationalist host of the Political Cesspool radio program

Endorsement: "Our people just needed a viable candidate and they've identified Trump as that man," Edwards said on Political Cesspool in March. "There is no doubt that Trump's populism and nationalism is galvanizing our nation and may change the course of American history for the better right before our very eyes."

In his own words: "The ingredient in Trump's historic rise that makes it so delicious is that it's nuclear powered," he wrote after a Trump rally. "It is unstoppable. It is impervious to foot-shuffling, complaints, whining, hysterical cries of 'racism' and so-called 'white supremacism.' Trump supporters don't care and there is something undeniably infectious about Trump's masculine attitude." Edwards has also called Trump's campaign "implicitly white."


Brad Griffin (pen name Hunter Wallace)

Founder of the white nationalist website Occidental Dissent

Endorsement: "The signal has gone out to join the Trump campaign and to openly organize in the mainstream under the banner of the Republican frontrunner to take down the hated cuckservative establishment."

In his own words: "Our message is more visible than ever before," Griffin wrote on his website. "It's also all due to Trump's presidential run…Can you imagine a world in which White Nationalists have come out of the closet, the charge of 'racism' elicits only a 'meh' and shrugged shoulders, and we have begun to openly organize?"


Matthew Heimbach

Leader of the white nationalist Traditionalist Worker Party, and training director of the neo-Confederate group League of the South


Endorsement: "The fires of nationalism, the fires of identity, the fires of anger against the corrupt establishment are arising all around Europe, all around America, all around the entire world," Heimbach said in a May 2016 Radio Aryan podcast. "So we just need to strap in, because the future is gonna definitely be interesting, and I believe we could have a switch in our direction even more…Hail, Emperor Trump! And hail, victory!"

In his own words: "The 'freedom' for other races to move freely into white nations is nonexistent," he said in 2013. "Stay in your own nations, we don't want you here."
"The future is gonna definitely be interesting, and I believe we could have a switch in our direction even more…Hail, Emperor Trump!"

Gregory Hood

Book author and blogger for the white nationalist websites Radix Journal and American Renaissance

Endorsement: "The survival of the current political, economic, and cultural system is a death sentence for the European-American population," Hood wrote in July 2015 Radix post. "Trump creates an opening to disrupt that system."

In his own words: "I began to understand that not everyone is just a white person, some of them with deeper tans," Hood wrote in a 2015 blog post. "They really aren't like us—and absent a white majority, the cultural norms and institutions Americans take for granted simply will not exist."


William Johnson

Leader of the white nationalist American Freedom Party, and a former Trump delegate

Endorsement: Johnson endorsed Trump in a February 2016 robocall, saying, "The white race is dying out in America and Europe because we are afraid to be called 'racist'…Donald Trump is not racist, but Donald Trump is not afraid. Don't vote for a Cuban. Vote for Donald Trump."

In his own words: "We wanted to push the Trump presidency, but we also wanted to bring attention to the nation and to the Trump campaign that there are those of us who are proud of our heritage, proud to be white, and want to maintain and preserve that heritage," Johnson said on Political Cesspool.
"This may be the last chance for Whites to elect a president who represents their interests."

Kevin MacDonald

Editor of the white nationalist website the Occidental Observer


Endorsement: "This may be the last chance for Whites to elect a president who represents their interests," MacDonald wrote in a December 2015 post.
In his own words: "Jewish power has been so deeply antithetical to the interests of Whites in America and elsewhere," he wrote on his site in 2012.


Ilana Mercer

Author of The Trump Revolution, and a contributor to VDare.com

Endorsement: Trump is "a political Samson that threatens to bring the den of iniquity crashing down on its patrons," Mercer wrote in her book, published in June 2016.

In her own words: Mercer also wrote in her book that Trump is "a man who won't grovel to the Powers That Be and who has refused to submit to the precepts of Cultural Marxism, namely the tyranny that sees speech policed for impropriety and individuals stigmatized and isolated for thinking and speaking in a manner disallowed by the politically correct police."
"The GOP is becoming the de facto White party. Nothing wrong with that."

Paul Ray Ramsey, a.k.a. RamzPaul

White nationalist video blogger


Endorsement: He endorsed Trump in a July 2016 video titled "Trump's Acceptance Speech—the Lion." "The Donald—God bless him," he said in an earlier, December 2015, video. "I'm like a teenager with a crush."

In his own words: "The GOP is becoming the de facto White party," he tweeted in July. "Nothing wrong with that."


Richard B. Spencer

President of the white nationalist National Policy Institute, and editor of Radix Journal


Endorsement: "Trump says things, says these in a way—mundane things—with such gusto, with such visceral energy and toughness," Spencer said in a 2015 podcast.

In his own words: "Martin Luther King Jr., a fraud and degenerate in his life, has become the symbol and cynosure of White Dispossession and the deconstruction of Occidental civilization," he wrote in Radix Journal. "We must overcome!"
"We don't need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture."


Jared Taylor

Founder of the white nationalist American Renaissance website


Endorsement: "I urge you to vote for Donald Trump because he is the one candidate who points out that we should accept immigrants who are good for America," Taylor said in a January 2016 robocall. "We don't need Muslims. We need smart, well-educated white people who will assimilate to our culture."

In his own words: "We do the country no favors by insisting that blacks are just as smart and hard-working as whites but are held back only by wicked whites," he said in a 2010 interview in Taki's Magazine. "That only encourages blacks to hate whites, and many don't need encouragement."

Donald Trump is unlikely to finish his first term as President, according to the leading Democrat on the committee looking into alleged Russian interference in the US election.

Senator Mark Warner, the vice chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, privately told friends he puts the odds at two to one against the President completing a full term, the New Yorker reported.

Mr Warner's spokesperson did not deny he had made the remarks, but told the paper the Senator was "not referring specifically to the Russia investigation, but rather the totality of challenges the President is currently facing."

As president-elect, Trump did not know the pedigree and importance of the one-China policy. About such things he can be, if he is willing to be, tutored. It is, however, too late to rectify this defect: He lacks what T.S. Eliot called a sense “not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence.” His fathomless lack of interest in America’s path to the present and his limitless gullibility leave him susceptible to being blown about by gusts of factoids that cling like lint to a disorderly mind.

Americans have placed vast military power at the discretion of this mind, a presidential discretion that is largely immune to restraint by the Madisonian system of institutional checks and balances. So, it is up to the public to quarantine this presidency by insistently communicating to its elected representatives a steady, rational fear of this man whose combination of impulsivity and credulity render him uniquely unfit to take the nation into a military conflict.

OMG.

http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-asked-james-comey-to-pledge-his-loyalty-to-him/

Soon after he was inaugurated, President Trump asked FBI Director James Comey to pledge his loyalty to him, a request that Comey turned down, CBS News' Pat Milton confirmed Thursday, citing a law enforcement source who was told the story by Comey.

Comey felt that conversation, which occurred in January, shortly after Mr. Trump was inaugurated, was the beginning of his downfall, according to the New York Times, which first reported the story.

Trump contradicts his staff on how he decided to fire Comey

In January, Mr. Trump invited Comey to have dinner with him at the White House, and in the course of their conversation, the president asked Comey if he would pledge his loyalty to him. The FBI director declined, but he replied to the president that he would always be honest.

Again during their dinner, Mr. Trump told Comey he needed his loyalty. And again, Comey responded that he would be honest, according to the source. Mr. Trump pressed Comey on whether it would be "honest loyalty." Comey said that he responded, "Yes, you will have that." He meant, said the source, that he would always be honest with the president.

In an interview with NBC News, President Trump mentioned the White House dinner with Comey, but he cited the dinner as one of three occasions when Comey had told him "you are not under investigation." Mr. Trump told NBC News' Lester Holt that Comey wanted to make a pitch to keep his job.

"I think he asked for the dinner, and he wanted to stay on as the FBI head," the president told Holt. "And I said I'll, you know, consider and we'll see what happens."

The White House has not commented on the story to CBS News, although Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the Times, "We don't believe this to be an accurate account," adding, "The integrity of our law enforcement agencies and their leadership is of the utmost importance to President Trump. He would never even suggest the expectation of personal loyalty, only loyalty to our country and its great people."

Earlier Thursday, during the White House briefing Thursday, asked how important loyalty to the president is for the person serving as FBI director, Sanders said that "the main factor" is that "they're loyal to the justice system; they're loyal to the American people."

Does firing James Comey put Trump in legal jeopardy?

The FBI is investigating meddling by the Russians in the U.S. election and whether anyone on the Trump team colluded with them. Former FBI Director James Comey was heading that investigation, so does firing him put the president in legal jeopardy?

"If I were defending the case, I would say, he knows it's not going to end the investigation. If anything, the FBI will get more energized by this, which I believe they will," Bennett says.

After four months in office, President Donald Trump has become distrustful of some of his White House staff, heavily reliant on a handful of family members and longtime aides, and furious that the White House’s attempts to quell the firestorm over the FBI and congressional Russia investigations only seem to add more fuel.

Is it time for Trump staff to lawyer up?

Veterans of Washington's scandals say that with subpoenas coming from Congress and an FBI investigation still active, staffers would be wise to seek counsel.

By Darren Samuelsohn

05/14/17 07:02 AM EDT

Updated 05/14/17 01:40 PM EDT

Veterans of White House scandals from Watergate to Plamegate have an important message for Team Trump: It’s time to think about lawyering up.

In the past week, a Senate committee began issuing subpoenas in its investigation into Russian contacts with President Donald Trump’s staff and other associates during the 2016 election campaign and transition, while the FBI continues its own criminal investigation. Trump himself fired FBI Director James Comey and then, in the aftermath, said the Russia probe was “made up” and appeared to threaten Comey on Twitter.

“There’s obviously a risk here,” said Washington white-collar defense attorney Robert Luskin. “And that’s not any kind of judgment on [Trump’s] personal integrity or absence of it, but the apparent fact he doesn’t seem to be very sensitive about norms and about risks.”

It’s an axiom of Washington scandals that the cover-up tends to be worse than the crime — and it’s lower- or mid-level people who wind up getting caught in the worst legal trouble, usually for tangential offenses like perjury or obstruction of justice.

President Trump to Light White House Blue in Honor of Fallen Officers

President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania will light the White House blue Monday in honor of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty.

"America stands strong with our brave men and women in blue," Trump said during a speech for Peace Officers Memorial Day Monday on Capitol Hill. "Every drop of blood spilled from our heroes in blue is a wound inflicted upon the whole country."

The President has requested governors around the country fly flags at half staff in memory of fallen officers.

President Obama was asked repeatedly to light the White House blue in honor of fallen officers. He refused.

rump and his aides received less than an hour's notice Wednesday before the Justice Department announced it was bringing in Robert Mueller, an ex-FBI director, as a special counsel to take over the investigation into Russia's election meddling. It was the third straight day this week that brought deeply damaging news to an increasingly beleaguered commander-in-chief.

It was a blindside that will substantially escalate the investigation into the Trump campaign's dealings with Russia. It's also another reminder to an increasingly besieged President of the limitations on his own power, even within the executive branch.

Jolly then said the following with a dark demeanor. He realizes the Trump presidency is dead in one form or another.

"But in the long lens," Jolly said with a sigh. "Donald Trump is done. He is done. There is no question about that. He's done. Look at what happened in the first hundred days. Director Comey, one of the top law enforcement officers in the country, makes memos of every interaction he had with the president of the United States. Tonight, Rosenstein comes out in the brief two or three weeks he has to make an impact and says, we need a special counsel. That is historic in terms of a hundred days of a new president."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/donald-trump-unfair-comparison_us_591ca832e4b034684b090f23

Barack Obama: People may not remember this, but President Obama was relentlessly accused of not having been born in the United States of America. In my humble opinion, this was pretty ungracious! And here’s an interesting historical detail: One of the ringleaders of the movement to unfairly discredit Obama’s American-ness was future President Trump.

As you can plainly see, Donald Trump, by virtue of not being shot in the abdomen or head, not having his mansion burned down, and not being accused of birth in a foreign country in order to question his legitimacy, is making out pretty good on the spectrum of “being treated fairly.”

The new special counsel investigation into possible collusion between associates of President Donald Trump and Russia is just getting started — and it could take years to resolve.

But Trump’s Oval Office boast to Russian officials May 10 about why he fired FBI Director James Comey will almost certainly trigger a more immediate, and potentially perilous, legal development: an obstruction of justice investigation into whether the president intentionally engaged in a cover-up that warrants the filing of criminal charges, current and former Justice Department officials say.

Trump summarily terminated Comey one day earlier, just as it appeared that his FBI investigators were ramping up their investigation into the president’s associates — and possibly Trump himself. A day later, the president told Russian’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that, “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job.”

This is much worse than what Clinton did.

Hours after the New York Times reported—and multiple news outlets confirmed—that President Donald Trump had asked former FBI Director James Comey to drop the bureau's investigation into Michael Flynn, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said the president's mounting scandals were inching towards Watergate proportions.

"I think we've seen this movie before," the Arizona senator said at the International Republican Institute's Freedom Awards on Tuesday. "I think it's reaching a point where it's of Watergate size and scale, and a couple of other scandals that you and I have seen. It's a centipede that the shoe continues to drop."

Trump, Xi have 'candid,' 'positive' talks in Florida

By Jeremy Diamond and Kevin Liptak, CNN

Trump & Xi's North Korea problem



Palm Beach, Florida (CNN)President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping established a new framework for high-level negotiations on a range of issues and pledged to make progress on trade negotiations within the next 100 days during meetings here Thursday and Friday, top US officials said.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson touted the first summit between the leaders of the world's two largest economies as a success and said Trump and Xi enjoyed "very frank, very candid" discussions that were "very positive." The officials signaled that the trading relationship between the two countries and North Korea's nuclear program were at the top of the agenda during the meetings, which took place here over 24 hours at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump is learning the hard way that being President is tough

The meetings, which were overshadowed by Trump's launch of an airstrike against a Syrian government target during the summit, did not yield any concrete accomplishments beyond pledges of increased cooperation and new frameworks for dialogue.
Tillerson, who briefed reporters alongside Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross at the conclusion of the summit, also said Trump said China needs to make changes to its economy in order to "level the playing field for American workers, stressing repeatedly the need for reciprocal market access."
"President Trump noted the challenges caused by Chinese government intervention in its economy and raised serious concerns," Tillerson said.
Mnuchin said the discussions focused on creating a "more balanced economic relationship, specifically on trade."

All three Cabinet secretaries, though, used diplomatic language to describe the trading imbalance between the two countries, avoiding the hard-nosed rhetoric Trump has used for years in railing against the multibillion dollar US trade deficit with China. Trump has accused China of "raping" the US and argued that it has engaged in trade abuses to gain an advantage over the US.
The two leaders also agreed on the "urgency of the threat of North Korea's nuclear weapons program" and agreed to work together to resolve the issue "peacefully," Tillerson said.
"The two sides noted the urgency of the threat of North Korea's weapons program, reaffirmed their commitment to a denuclearized Korean Peninsula and committed to fully implement UN Security Council resolutions," Tillerson said. "They agreed to increase cooperation and work with the international community to convince the [North Korea] to peacefully resolve the issue and abandon its illicit weapons programs."
Discussions between Trump and Xi over North Korea came days after Trump warned that the US was prepared to act unilaterally to stop North Korea's nuclear program from advancing further should China be unwilling to use its leverage over Pyongyang.
The discussions also came as Trump launched a strike against a Syrian government air base as retaliation for its recent chemical weapons attack against a rebel stronghold, which killed civilians, including children. Some experts interpreted the strike as a warning to North Korea that the US is prepared to act militarily to prevent the use of weapons of mass destruction.
Trump informed Xi of the strike as they finished eating dinner together on Friday, just as the US-launched cruise missiles struck their targets.
Tillerson said Xi told Trump that he "understood that such a response was necessary when people are killing children" and expressed "an appreciation" to Trump for informing him of the number of missiles that were launched and explaining the rationale behind the strike.

Guest essay: A closer look at Trump’s accomplishments

Saturday
Posted May 20, 2017 at 2:01 AM

By Noah Sanchez
So there is no doubt that there has been controversy on Donald Trump’s performance so far as we’ve reached his first 100 days in office. With some people thinking that Trump has done an exceptional job so far and others thinking the opposite, it is difficult to get a reliable polling system set up with the mixed opinions.

According to a Huffington Post poll, Trump’s approval rating is at an all-time low of about 42 percent when last updated April 25. But according to the New York Post, approval ratings don’t matter, saying that the answers and responses you get vary on where you are and who you’re polling.


But there is one thing that opinions can’t win a fight with: facts.

A daily voting poll asked the question, “Do you think Trump has done a good job so far?” and the answers were over 60 percent no and a little over 30 percent yes. At this point in Trump’s presidency, if you rely on the mainstream media reports, then you probably think Trump will go down has one of the worst presidents in history. But here are some facts to consider before you come to a conclusion.

When Trump took office, we heard him vow to cut debt by $16 trillion, and he’s well on his way. According to The Washington Post, before Barack Obama took office, the debt was at about $10.6 trillion, and by the time Obama left office the debt was about $18 trillion. Now it’s up to Trump to fix the horrible mess that was left for him. USA Politics Now reports that in just Trump’s first month, debt was cut by $12 billion, and in just a little over six weeks it’s been slashed by an incredible $68 billion. So sticking to his campaign promises and cutting debt by about 0.1 percent every day, we are sure to see a big difference.

Another way Trump has left a big mark so far is his impact on job creation. If you haven’t already noticed, Trump has made an incredibly successful business empire for him and his family. So really, if there is any person who knows how to create jobs, it’s Trump. According to Infowars, since Trump took office, there have already been about 300,000-plus jobs created. This happened so dramatically because of Trump’s belief in strong business and his cutting of regulations on large corporations, allowing them to be more flexible in the decisions that they make such as worker selection.

These are just some of the many things Trump has done in office so far that benefit America greatly. So before coming to a conclusion on Trump’s performance as president, take these facts into account. It’s a long, bumpy road set out for Trump, but in the end he’s on his way to “make America great again.”

Most of this is based on actions from before he took office since he inherited a near full growth economy. If by the end of this year, this pattern continues he deserves the credit.

Again these are actions that started before he took office. And many major retailers are announcing big jobs coming so we will see by the end of this where job numbers stand. Job numbers, by the way, that candidate Trump said were totally bogus.

GW Bush -73.7%

Has Trump fulfilled any campaign promises or will he? It looks doubtful to me.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/poli...cess/102045300/

JERUSALEM — President Trump said Tuesday that both Israel and Palestine are ready to "reach for peace" in their decades-long conflict, and that he is personally committed to achieving what he calls "the ultimate deal."

But after a 28-hour stop in Israel that included separate meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, Trump left Jerusalem without putting forward any specific proposals, road maps or next steps for that peace to happen. He sidestepped the issue of Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory, something he and President Obama have both said are unhelpful to the peace process.

And Trump also left one of his campaign promises — a pledge to move the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem — unfulfilled.

Barack Obama: People may not remember this, but President Obama was relentlessly accused of not having been born in the United States of America. In my humble opinion, this was pretty ungracious! And here’s an interesting historical detail: One of the ringleaders of the movement to unfairly discredit Obama’s American-ness was future President Trump.

As you can plainly see, Donald Trump, by virtue of not being shot in the abdomen or head, not having his mansion burned down, and not being accused of birth in a foreign country in order to question his legitimacy, is making out pretty good on the spectrum of “being treated fairly.”


Nope Trump is most assuredly having it worse. Nice try on the spin though. If Dems don't stop trying to "get" Trump and start doing their jobs they will continue to lose big.

The new special counsel investigation into possible collusion between associates of President Donald Trump and Russia is just getting started — and it could take years to resolve.

But Trump’s Oval Office boast to Russian officials May 10 about why he fired FBI Director James Comey will almost certainly trigger a more immediate, and potentially perilous, legal development: an obstruction of justice investigation into whether the president intentionally engaged in a cover-up that warrants the filing of criminal charges, current and former Justice Department officials say.

Trump summarily terminated Comey one day earlier, just as it appeared that his FBI investigators were ramping up their investigation into the president’s associates — and possibly Trump himself. A day later, the president told Russian’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Ambassador Sergey Kislyak that, “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job.”


It is bad for Trump. He fires his FBI director and one day later his lawyer is found dead. Oh wait that was Bill Clinton Never mind.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/01/06/news/economy/obama-over-11-million-jobs/

The president is claiming a big victory on getting Americans back to work again.

"Businesses that were bleeding jobs unleashed the longest streak of job creation on record," Obama wrote in a letter to the American people this week.

He's right: The economy has added jobs for 75 straight months, although his overall jobs gains aren't as strong as some prior presidents.

The U.S. added 15.9 million jobs under President Ronald Reagan and a whopping 22.9 million under President Bill Clinton if you look at how many Americans were employed in the last full month they were in office versus the January when they were sworn in.

Obama did outpace President George W. Bush though. Bush is in the back of the pack among recent presidents who served two terms. Only 2.1 million jobs were added during Bush's full tenure.

He's right: The economy has added jobs for 75 straight months, although his overall jobs gains aren't as strong as some prior presidents.

The U.S. added 15.9 million jobs under President Ronald Reagan and a whopping 22.9 million under President Bill Clinton if you look at how many Americans were employed in the last full month they were in office versus the January when they were sworn in.

Obama did outpace President George W. Bush though. Bush is in the back of the pack among recent presidents who served two terms. Only 2.1 million jobs were added during Bush's full tenure.


No shock that Obama is not telling the truth.

Obama told Black Enterprise magazine in an interview published last week: "we are digging ourselves out of a deep hole." But Obama's claim of creating 4.5 million jobs that he reiterated again on Thursday is simply wrong. Not only do we have fewer jobs in the U.S. today than when Obama first became president, nothing has been done for the 8 million additional working age people. By anyone's definition, this is not a "recovery."

WASHINGTON &#8213; Citing the Bible and expressing his sympathies in advance, Republican South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford savaged President Donald Trump’s budget proposal Wednesday as a “myth” and a “lie,” hammering the White House’s spending plan more thoroughly than any Democrat.

Sanford, the former governor of South Carolina who has a contentious relationship with the White House, simply did not accept the contention offered by Budget Director Mick Mulvaney in a House Budget Committee hearing that the economy is going to grow at 3 percent for the next 10 years.

The White House uses that growth estimate to argue that, despite cutting taxes dramatically for the wealthy, tax revenues will actually rise so that the budget will balance in 10 years. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimates growth rates of just 1.9 percent.

So Trump's goal of 3% is not doable. Understandable that the do nothings would think that when Obama could not manage it.

But why the uproar over 3% when Obama forecast 5 to 6% in all his budgets. Oh that's right they are Washington hypocrites

Great Moments in Fake News 'Journalism'
Larry Elder
What about President Donald Trump's complaint about "fake news"? Let's look at some examples of "Great Moments in 'Journalism'" over the last few years.
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., in an appearance on ABC's Sunday morning political show hosted by George Stephanopoulos, called former Democratic Alabama Gov. George Wallace a "Republican." Ellison said, "At the same time, (in Trump) we do have the worst Republican nominee since George Wallace." Stephanopoulos either ignored or was ignorant of the fact that Wallace -- who proudly proclaimed, "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever" -- was a long-standing Democrat who served four terms as governor and twice sought the Democratic nomination for president. Tellingly, Stephanopoulos did not correct Ellison. Fortunately, another guest, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., did correct the history-challenged Ellison.

Candy Crowley of CNN, one of the 2012 presidential debate moderators, "corrected" Mitt Romney when the Republican candidate accused President Barack Obama of failing to call the assault on Benghazi a "terror attack." Obama claimed he immediately called the assault on Benghazi an "act of terror":

Romney: "You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror. It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you're saying?"

Obama: "Please proceed, governor."

Romney: "I want to make sure we get that for the record because it took the president 14 days before he called the attack in Benghazi an act of terror."

Obama: "Get the transcript."

Crowley: "It -- it -- it -- he did in fact, sir. So let me -- let me call it an act of terror."

Obama: "Can you say that a little louder, Candy?"

Crowley: "He -- he did call it an act of terror."

In truth, the day after the attack, Obama said: "No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for." He only referred specifically to the deaths of four Americans in Libya as "an attack" or "this attack."

Fourteen days after the attack, Obama was asked: "I heard Hillary Clinton say it was an act of terrorism. Is it? What do you say?" The President responded: "We're still doing an investigation. There's no doubt that (with) the kind of weapons that were used, the ongoing assault, that it wasn't just a mob action. We don't have all the information yet, so we're still gathering it. But what's clear is that around the world, there's still a lot of threats out there." Clearly, Crowley was wrong when she "corrected" Romney and defended Obama. This was a turning point in the election.

MSNBC's Luke Russert, covering the 2008 presidential election, said students at the University of Virginia will vote Obama because: "You have to remember, the smartest kids in the state go there, so it's leaning a little bit towards Obama." Get it? Smart people vote Democrat. Dumb people vote Republican. Russert later apologized.


CNN's Carol Costello laughed hysterically as a frantic Bristol Palin, daughter of Sarah Palin, told cops she was assaulted at a party. Listen to how a gleeful Costello introduced the audiotape of Bristol describing the attack to the police: "This is quite possibly the best minute and a half of audio we've ever come across -- well, come across in a long time, anyway. A massive brawl in Anchorage, Alaska, reportedly involving Sarah Palin's kids and her husband. It was sparked after someone pushed one of her daughters at a party. That's what Bristol Palin told police in an interview after the incident. ... So sit back and enjoy." A near-hysterical Palin says: "A guy comes out of nowhere and pushes me on the ground, takes me by my feet, in my dress -- in my thong, dress, in front of everybody -- 'Come on, you (expletive), come on, you (expletive), get the (expletive) out of here.'"

At the conclusion of the segment, a smirking Costello said, "You can thank me later."

MSNBC's Erin Burnett, now with CNN, called then-President George W. Bush a "monkey." With videotape rolling of President Bush flanked by French President Nicolas Sarkozy to his left and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to his right, the reporter gushed, "Who could not have a man-crush on that man? I'm not talking about the monkey, either. I'm talking about the other one." The host asked, "Who's the monkey?" Burnett replied, "The monkey in the middle" -- meaning President Bush. She, too, later apologized.


The late Tim Russert, in a 2007 interview with The New York Times war correspondent John Burns, repeated an often-cited anti-Iraq War talking point -- that Americans expected to be greeted as "liberators" in Iraq, but weren't. Burns, who was in Iraq at the time of the invasion, corrected him: "The American troops were greeted as liberators. We saw it."

Trump is clearly right to fulminate against what he calls the "fake news media." The real question is what took Republicans so long to fight back.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/25/montana-sepcial-election-2017-greg-gianforte-238827

Greg Gianforte doesn’t get the basics of America or public service, Sen. Ben Sasse said Thursday.

“If you’re seeking a job as a public servant, if you’re going to serve in the Congress, one of the core obligations before you is to teach American civics. And if you’re teaching American civics, you celebrate a First Amendment, a free press, speech, assembly, religion,” Sasse said Thursday in a detailed and frank interview for POLITICO’s “Off Message” podcast scheduled to be released on Tuesday about America, Peter Pan, the failings of Congress and of the Republican Party, and President Donald Trump.

Sasse, the junior senator from Nebraska and a staunch conservative, is a former college president who’s promoting his new book, “The Vanishing American Adult,” which amounts to a diagnosis of the rot within American culture and what to do about it.

The Republican nominee in Thursday’s special election for Montana’s House seat, now charged with misdemeanor assault for attacking reporter Ben Jacobs at an event on Wednesday night, didn’t strike Sasse as part of the solution.

“If the First Amendment means anything, it means you don’t body slam a reporter. It means that regardless of whether or not you think in a given situation reporter X, Y or Z in town hall A, B or C is annoying,” Sasse said, “you pause and you celebrate the First Amendment.”

The president has repeatedly questioned Washington’s relationships in the region, cheering Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and engaging positively with anti-EU politicians like France’s Marine Le Pen. Top political figures and Europe analysts have already labeled his trip a major failure, and it’s not even over yet: Trump is expected to now head to Sicily for a summit of the G7, a group of the world’s most developed economies.

Former House Speaker John Boehner said earlier this week that Donald Trump’s presidency so far has been “a complete disaster” and that the billionaire-turned commander in chief is still learning the job.

“Everything else he’s done [in office] has been a complete disaster,” Boehner said during a question-and-answer session at a conference in Houston on Wednesday. “He’s still learning how to be president.”

Hillary won the popular vote by 3 million votes. Go away Trump before we lose every ally in the world. From Fox News.

http://insider.foxnews.com/2017/05/26/kr...tting-article-5

On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer said President Trump's first foreign trip as commander-in-chief got off to a strong start in the Middle East, but the second part of the trip in Europe was a "disaster."

He didn't take issue with Trump scolding our NATO allies and telling them to pay their "fair share" of the alliance's defense costs.

Instead, Krauthammer said, Trump left NATO members unsettled by not reiterating U.S. commitment to Article 5 of the NATO charter.

Article 5 is a mutual defense pledge and NATO's core tenet. It means that "an attack against one ally is considered as an attack against all."

"The world was waiting for Trump to say, 'I support Article 5,'" Krauthammer said. "That was the purpose of the visit, and he wouldn't say it."

He said that omission is going to have many lasting repercussions, weakening NATO unity over time.

"It's really hard to understand why he didn't say it," Krauthammer said. "The omission was a statement."

Such a feeling you have is called whistling in the dark as the rest of the political world more and more thinks otherwise.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/27/jared-kushner-russia-scandal-white-house-role-238890

Once the untouchable son-in-law in a White House where top aides jockey for the president’s ear, Jared Kushner has now been cast in a new role: reassuring people that he’s not going to resign, while colleagues question whether he can survive politically.

Any victory lap Kushner hoped to enjoy after pulling off a successful presidential foreign trip to the Middle East was cut short after the Washington Post reported that during the transition he discussed setting up a secret backchannel with the Russian Ambassador. He also failed to disclose earlier phone calls with Russian officials, according to a Reuters report.

The backchannel was never established. But the news puts Kushner squarely in the middle of a wide-ranging FBI investigation into whether Trump campaign advisers were working with Russian operatives to influence the results of the 2016 election.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING - 05/29/17 09:24 AM

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2016/8/3/1...-5-ever-invoked

On the Insurgent site , Eric Erickson wrote a blistering article, blasting Trump for asking if NATO countries “have paid” if they want American protection from a potential Russian invasion. Erickson brought up an interesting piece of history that I was unaware of.

Erickson asked if Trump supporters knew the only time NATO has ever invoked Article 5 of the 1949 Washington Treaty that established NATO. That’s the article that recognizes an attack on one NATO ally as an attack on all NATO allies requiring defense.

The answer is:

“The only time NATO has ever invoked Article 5 and rushed to the aid of a NATO ally in response to an attack was on September 11, 2001.”

Erickson rips Trump supporters a new asshole:

“Donald Trump wants to turn NATO into a damn shakedown scheme and you people are cheering him on. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should be ashamed of the fact that your cult leader who claims to have been personally affected by 9/11 does not even know our NATO allies protected his ass that day. You should be ashamed that he wants to turn one of the strongest military alliances in the history of the world into a racket where protection is bought. You should be ashamed that you are not ashamed.”

President Donald Trump's odyssey through Europe and the Middle East fulfilled a more narrow political focus for the reeling White House: It was a nine-day distraction from the dominant narrative of a presidency under siege.

Now, Trump needs to find another way to change the subject, because the questions about Russia that have long clouded his administration have deepened in the time he has spent away.

My favorite Republican senator.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/05/30/ben-sasse-trump-off-message-238924

He never liked Trump. He still doesn’t like Trump. And now that he’s promoting his new book, “The Vanishing American Adult,” the freshman Nebraska senator doesn’t want to talk about whether the 45th president of the United States counts as an adult, according to the principles he lays out across 300 pages. Sasse would rather not be talking about Trump, but when pressed, he says the president is a symptom of exactly what he thinks is wrong with America.

Trump “comes out of a reality TV world,” Sasse told me in the latest episode of POLITICO’s Off Message podcast. “And I have lots of anxiety about whether or not that kind of world is really what we want for our kids.”

Now, Trump needs to find another way to change the subject, because the questions about Russia that have long clouded his administration have deepened in the time he has spent away.

The boldest ideas for changing the nation's tax code are either dead or on political life support, as the Republican effort in Congress to reshape the tax system moves much more slowly than lawmakers and their allies in business had hoped.

Federal Judge Calls Trump Deportation Order of Hawaiian Coffee Farmer ‘Inhumane’

by Pete Williams

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/fede...nhumane-n766376

The Trump administration's decision to deport a coffee farmer in Hawaii who came to the U.S. illegally 28 years ago prompted a harsh rebuke Tuesday from a federal appeals court judge who called it inhumane.

"President Trump has claimed that his immigration policies would target the 'bad hombres," said Judge Stephen Reinhardt of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco. The government decision in the immigration case "shows that even the 'good hombres' are not safe."

Reinhardt's comments came as the appeals court turned down a request from Andres Magana Ortiz to delay his deportation. The judge said the court was compelled to deny the request "because we do not have the authority to grant it. We are not, however, compelled to find the government's action in this case fair or just."

Magana Ortiz, now 43, came illegally to the U.S. when he was 15 and became a coffee farmer in Hawaii's Kona region. He has three children, all of them U.S. citizens because they were born in Hawaii, and he married his current wife last year.

Justice Department Ends Obama Era Practice of Forcing Federal Defendants to Donate to Leftist Activists
Katie Pavlich

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced early Wednesday morning the Department of Justice will no longer force defendants to send payments to third party special interests unrelated or unharmed in federal cases.

“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people— not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in a statement. “Unfortunately, in recent years the Department of Justice has sometimes required or encouraged defendants to make these payments to third parties as a condition of settlement. With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.”

Current DOJ officials argue that under the Obama administration, settlement payments were often made to "non-party, non-victim political groups" and required defendants to donate to activist groups as a way to finish or close a case.

Essentially, there was a slush fund for leftist groups set up through the Department of Justice. Billions of dollars were paid out to far-left groups like La Raza, Neighborworks, National Community Reinvestment Coalition, the National Urban League and extreme environmental groups after unrelated big bank settlements with JP Morgan, Bank of America, Citigroup and car company Volkswagen.

“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Fox News earlier this year. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

In order to prevent this type of practice in the future, Congress has introduced legislation barring the Department from using settlement agreements as ways to fund activist groups.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who has been working on this issue for years, applauded the move.

“Today’s decision by the Attorney General to end the Justice Department’s use of settlement agreements to fund politically favored organizations is a win for the victims in such disputes and for checks and balances in government. Under the Constitution, Congress holds the purse strings. The laws Congress passes dictate how funds collected by the government should be used," Grassley said. "Often, it’s to support the victims in such disputes. But under the Obama administration, the Justice Department disregarded this separation of powers by repeatedly directing defendants to ‘donate’ hundreds of millions of dollars to the administration’s friends and allies, including those that Congress took deliberate steps to defund. These practices usurped Congress’s spending authority and opened wide the door for misuse of government funds—all without any oversight mechanisms/

“Since 2010, I’ve been working to shine a light on these misdeeds and to get answers from the Department. Today’s announcement is welcomed news for those of us who respect the rule of law and demand a more accountable government,” he continued.

In conclusion: those are not citations, they are quotes and at least CNN applies proper journalistic standards by providing fair disclosure, so/he you have no evidence to back up your nonsense and/or are too lazy or insincere to even try.

Good News: Trump Nominates New Set of Federal Judges, Including Three to Influential Circuit Courts
Guy Benson

With much of the media is fixated on Russia, Comey, and potential obstruction, other goings-on inside the Beltway are getting relatively scant attention. The White House is ramping up its focus on rebuilding US infrastructure (a common Trump campaign refrain), Republican Senators may be forging ahead with some progress on desperately-needed reforms to Obamacare's failing status quo, and the president has unveiled another substantial roster of nominees to fill federal court vacancies. Three names on the list are slated to serve on important and influent circuit courts of appeal -- including a woman Trump has tapped to assume Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch's seat on the Tenth Circuit. Details:

One of the nominees, Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison H. Eid, is being tapped by the president to fill a vacancy on the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals created when Justice Neil Gorsuch was confirmed for the Supreme Court in April. Justice Eid was on Mr. Trump’s list of conservative potential Supreme Court nominees that he presented to voters during the presidential campaign last year. She has served on Colorado’s high court since 2006, and previously was the state’s solicitor general. Mr. Trump also nominated U.S. District Court Judge Ralph R. Erickson of North Dakota for the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, and said he intends to nominate University of Pennsylvania Law School professor Stephanos Bibas to serve on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Erickson has served on the district court since 2003.
The picks are receiving high marks from conservative court watchers. Here's the Judicial Crisis Network's Carrie Severino's glowing statement:

“President Trump has just announced his latest batch of appellate and district court nominees. It's a fantastic list, again drawing on his previous success from his Supreme Court list, by nominating Colorado Supreme Court Justice Allison Eid to fill Justice Gorsuch's vacant seat on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. Many of the nominees are well known in the conservative legal movement and have shown commitment to principled and evenhanded application of the law throughout their careers. For the many Americans whose top concern in November was electing a president who would put committed constitutionalists to the courts, this is another major victory.”
Prominent conservative-libertarian law professor Jonathan Adler joins the chorus of approval: "President Trump continues to put forward superlative judicial nominees with sterling credentials and impressive intellects. It's especially notable that President Trump continues to pick current and former academics for the appellate bench, more so than any recent President. This will only magnify the impact his nominees are likely to have on the federal courts," he said. In a May post about Trump's previous round of judicial nominees, I drew extra attention to a handful of names rumored to be possible future SCOTUS short-listers, in the event that Justice Kennedy retires and/or another justice leaves the Court. It's time to add Allison Eid as a serious contender within that elite cluster, having previously been included on the roster of Supreme Court options released by Trump's campaign.

During my stretch as a visiting fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution this spring, I chatted with former conservative circuit court judge Michael McConnell, who himself was rumored to be a Supreme Court finalist during the Bush era. He offered fulsome praise for Trump's recently-announced picks, and predicted that Ms. Eid would be a top candidate to replace Gorsuch. Getting through a recent Senate confirmation process would also augment her SCOTUS resume, he said at the time -- noting that her youth, reliable judicial philosophy, winsome nature and toughness would make her an attractive option if and when a High Court vacancy opened up. McConnell nailed his first prediction; let's see if he was also onto something when he mused that Eid may be onto even bigger things, perhaps quite soon. And in case you were curious, it's not unprecedented, or even necessarily particularly unusual, for a recently-elevated circuit court judge or senior official to be nominated for the ultimate promotion in short order.

So far, the Senate has confirmed just one of Trump's circuit court selections, but thanks to the Reid Rule, Democrats are powerless to stop any of them without GOP assistance. The upper chamber should move these nominations through as rapidly as possible and continue the crucial work of undoing some of the damage President Obama inflicted by packing these lower courts with liberals. I'll leave you with this tidbit. It looks like after enduring some criticism for a glacial pace of administration nominations, Team Trump is picking up the slack at a pretty rapid rate:

Celebrating The Dignity of Work: President Trump Signs Executive Order Promoting Apprenticeships
Katie Pavlich

President Trump signed an executive order from the White House Thursday promoting private apprenticeships as a way for individuals to learn skills that ultimately lead to full-time jobs.

"We're here to celebrate the dignity of work," Trump said before the signing. "Apprenticeships place students into great jobs without the crippling debt of traditional four year college degrees."

“We will be removing federal restrictions that have prevented many different industries from creating apprenticeship programs,” he continued. “We have regulations on top of regulations. And in history, nobody has gotten rid of some of these regulations like the Trump administration.”

White House Special Advisor Ivanka Trump has been leading the apprenticeship project with Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta. Earlier this week, she traveled to a Wisconsin factory with the President to promote the program.

Purpose of the order:

America's education systems and workforce development programs are in need of reform. In today's rapidly changing economy, it is more important than ever to prepare workers to fill both existing and newly created jobs and to prepare workers for the jobs of the future. Higher education, however, is becoming increasingly unaffordable. Furthermore, many colleges and universities fail to help students graduate with the skills necessary to secure high-paying jobs in today's workforce. Far too many individuals today find themselves with crushing student debt and no direct connection to jobs.

Against this background, federally funded education and workforce development programs are not effectively serving American workers. Despite the billions of taxpayer dollars invested in these programs each year, many Americans are struggling to find full-time work. These Federal programs must do a better job matching unemployed American workers with open jobs, including the 350,000 manufacturing jobs currently available.

Expanding apprenticeships and reforming ineffective education and workforce development programs will help address these issues, enabling more Americans to obtain relevant skills and high-paying jobs. Apprenticeships provide paid, relevant workplace experiences and opportunities to develop skills that employers value. Additionally, they provide affordable paths to good jobs and, ultimately, careers.

Finally, federally funded education and workforce development programs that do not work must be improved or eliminated so that taxpayer dollars can be channeled to more effective uses.
Policy of the order:

It shall be the policy of the Federal Government to provide more affordable pathways to secure, high-paying jobs by promoting apprenticeships and effective workforce development programs, while easing the regulatory burden on such programs and reducing or eliminating taxpayer support for ineffective workforce development programs.

Yeah, he copied Obama's previous programs that in reality will only fund a FRACTION of that which Obama did: whistle
http://time.com/money/4820268/trump-apprenticeship-plan/

Trump - $ 200 Million (not taking into account deep cuts laid out in his proposed budget, which slashes Labor Department funding by 21% and guts training and employment services).

Obama - $265 Million (of which $175M was the first-ever programmatic funding for registered apprenticeships in the U.S.).

Chris Lu, Former Deputy Labor Secretary under Obama, said Trump’s executive order “is simply a funding shift from other training programs.”

Kelly, after consulting with the Attorney General, signed a memorandum rescinding the November 20, 2014 memorandum that created the program known as Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (“DAPA”) because there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.
The rescinded memo purported to provide a path for illegal aliens with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident child to be considered for deferred action. To be considered for deferred action, an alien was required to satisfy six criteria:
(1) as of November 20, 2014, be the parent of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident;
(2) have continuously resided here since before January 1, 2010;
(3) have been physically present here on November 20, 2014, and when applying for relief;
(4) have no lawful immigration status on that date;
(5) not fall within the Secretary’s enforcement priorities; and
(6) “present no other factors that, in the exercise of discretion, make [ ] the grant of deferred action inappropriate.”
Prior to implementation of DAPA, twenty-six states challenged the policies established in the DAPA memorandum in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas. The district court enjoined implementation of the DAPA memorandum, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision, and the Supreme Court allowed the district court’s injunction to remain in place.
The rescinded policy also provided expanded work authorization for recipients under the DACA program for three years versus two years. This policy was also enjoined nationwide and has now been rescinded.
The June 15, 2012 memorandum that created the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will remain in effect.

Trump has a big heart. LOL

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/06/trump-rescinds-obamas-dapa-program/

Kelly said in a statement on Thursday he was rescinding the initiative, known as DAPA, because “there is no credible path forward to litigate the currently enjoined policy.”

An earlier program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), offers some 750,000 immigrants brought to the country illegally as children the chance to attend school and to work.

Trump has previously said his administration was devising a policy on how to deal with individuals covered by DACA, but no formal changes have been announced.

“They shouldn’t be very worried,” Trump said of DACA recipients in a January ABC News interview. “I do have a big heart.”

Trump's Cuba Policy: 10 Things You Need To Know
Katie Pavlich

President Donald Trump officially rescinded major parts of President Obama's "normalization of relations" with the Cuban regime Friday afternoon from Miami while keeping the door open for the government to submit a better deal for the Cuban people.

Here are ten things you need to know about the new policy.

1) The U.S. Embassy in Havana will remain open BOO

2) The Wet-Foot, Dry-Foot policy will not be reinstated after being ended under the Obama administration (Boo I wonder if the leftist courts will throw it out laugh )

3) The U.S. is open to the Cuban government submitting another deal, which will be scrutinized on a number of conditions

4) Cuba must take concrete steps toward open and Democratic elections for a deal to be made

5) Lifting of sanctions on the regime will only happen when political prisoners and dissidents are permanently released

6) Cuban workers must receive direct paychecks from businesses instead of being forced to route payments through the government

7) Travel for non-academic educational purposes by U.S. persons will be limited to group travel. Individual travel by U.S. persons to the country is no longer allowed.

8) Cuban-Americans are allowed to visit family in Cuba and can legally send monetary resources

9) Allows Americans to do business with private small businesses in the country, not the government. From the White House:

The new policy channels economic activities away from the Cuban military monopoly, Grupo de Administración Empresarial (GAESA), including most travel-related transactions, while allowing American individuals and entities to develop economic ties to the private, small business sector in Cuba. The new policy makes clear that the primary obstacle to the Cuban people’s prosperity and economic freedom is the Cuban military’s practice of controlling virtually every profitable sector of the economy. President Trump’s policy changes will encourage American commerce with free Cuban businesses and pressure the Cuban government to allow the Cuban people to expand the private sector.
10) The economic embargo has been reinstated (you can still legally buy Cuban rum and cigars)

The new policy will be implemented in 30-days after the Treasury Department sets up and reviews the new regulations.

Trump Lists His Demands for the Castro Regime
Cortney O'Brien

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined Vice President Mike Pence and President Trump in Miami, Florida Friday to unveil the White House’s new Cuba policy.

Rubio heaped praise on the president for showing compassion toward the Cuban people, who continue to struggle under the dictatorial leadership of Raul Castro. In multiple conversations the two had since the election, Rubio shared that Trump asked him constantly, “What are we going to do about Cuba?”

Well, the president was on hand to explain just some of the ways he intends to empower the people of Cuba, starting by canceling many of the provisions in the Obama administration’s “one-sided” deal with the Castro regime.

“The Cuban American community has so much love,” Trump said, returning the warm welcome he received when he walked onstage. “I saw that immediately.”

He commended the community for building a vibrant culture in Miami, noting it is “a testament to what a free Cuba can be.”

“With God’s help, a free Cuba is what we will soon achieve,” he added.

President Trump proceeded to do what his predecessor failed to so many times – expose communism for the failure it is.

"Now that I am president we will expose the crimes of the Castro regime," he promised.

The president listed several demands his administration will be making of Castro. For instance, Trump informed the dictator that they will not be lifting sanctions on Cuba until all political prisoners are free, all parties are legalized, and free elections are scheduled. He also plans to restrict U.S. dollars going to a military that is the cause of the Castro regime, enforce the ban on tourism and embargo. He also demanded that investments “flow directly to the people so they can open private businesses.”

He wasn’t finished. The president demanded that Castro stop harboring fugitives and criminals like Joanne Chesimard, who escaped from prison in 1979 and has been hiding in Cuba ever since gaining political asylum in 1984.

Trump finished his remarks, and went to a nearby table to sign the new contract.

“America will expose the crimes of the Castro regime and stand with the Cuban people in their struggle for freedom,” he said.

According to Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump isn’t smart enough to have committed the alleged crimes that he’s being investigated for. As Graham points out, he’s not even competent enough to collude with his own government, so how could he have worked with the Russians?

It has not exactly been a great week for Trump in the polls, however. On Tuesday, he reached a new low in a CBS News survey, at 36 percent, with 57 percent disapproving of his job performance. Over the weekend, Trump celebrated finally climbing back up to 50 percent with the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports. But on Thursday that number had fallen back to 46 percent, with 54 percent disapproving.

According to Gallup’s tracking poll, only one other elected president—Bill Clinton—has had an approval rating lower than 50 percent at this stage of a first year in office since records began with Dwight Eisenhower.

Perhaps most worrying for Trump is that support has begun to dwindle among his Republican base, with an 11 percent drop since April.

5 Signs President Trump Leads Like a Middle East Dictator

When Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi met with U.S. President Donald Trump in Washington on Monday, I couldn’t help thinking about how Trump’s presidency increasingly resembles a Middle East autocracy. That was further reinforced when Trump said of Sisi, “We agree on so many things.”

https://medium.com/defiant/donald-trump-is-becoming-an-american-dictator-8a65f36afe14

by ANDREW DOBBS

U.S. president Donald Trump intends to be a dictator. By this I mean that he wishes to individually dictate law and individually control the levers of the state through a mixture of legal and extralegal mechanisms with no effective external restraint. The actions he is taking are all in pursuit of this goal, and he is already well on his way.

Trump infamously promised in his convention speech that he alone could fix the country’s problems, and that’s how he intends to govern&#8202;—&#8202;alone.

There are a finite number of institutions that can stand in the way of a president. Up to this point, most presidents haven’t wanted to be dictators, and so they have respected these institutions enough to capitulate when the rules of the game indicated that they, the presidents, had lost to them.

But Trump is the kid that trashes the Monopoly board when he’s losing. One of the most important lessons we have learned so far is that many of the things we assume presidents will do are just convention and good form&#8202;—&#8202;they aren’t actually required.

Am I the only person in this state to see Donald Trump as a dictator? It’s no secret to me that he has single-handedly started to run our government. The things he had said and done scare me to death, but they don't seem to bother my conservative friends. The Republican stooges we call elected representatives are licking his boots. They don’t seem to care if his buddy is Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he defends tooth and nail. It seems like every day we see this excuse for our president doing something to create tension. Maybe Putin is giving him orders and blackmailing him.

If this seemed a tad hysterical before, it shouldn’t have; Trump has shown an authoritarian streak since he announced his bid for the White House. But with his sacking of FBI Director James Comey, who was leading an investigation into ties between his campaign and the Russian government, Donald Trump has taken his biggest step yet towards becoming the first American dictator.

Since taking office, Trump has been sprinting towards his dictatorial destiny. He had undermined the judiciary by threatening to break up the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals after “so-called” judges struck down his unconstitutional and immoral ban on immigration from several Muslim-majority countries. He has dispatched his cronies Kellyanne Conway to espouse “alternative facts” and Stephen Miller to warn the country that “the powers of the president… will not be questioned.” He has vilified the press for not toeing his party line. He banned journalists from covering his campaign and later the White House.

he Republicans have control of both the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate. This man is acting like an out-of-control dictator. You appoint a white supremacist on foreign affairs. Then you sign an order banning Muslims. Trump’s actions resemble those of Hitler rather than an American president. Then again, he had to honor his obligations to his Breitbart supporters, as horrible and despicable as they may be.

Yet you see outrage only from a handful of Republicans. I guess with an election coming up, none want to be seen as anti-Trump. This man only talks to news agencies that are pro-Trump. He is now promoting Fox News, which is no surprise. He seems to hide himself behind his outrageous rhetoric that the other news agencies are liars and don’t report on him fairly. Again, I say this man is acting like a dictator. I guess he doesn’t want the facts and truth told.

Could it be that this president doesn’t want to answer the tough questions as to why he hasn’t given up his interest in his businesses? Why hasn’t he released his tax returns so Americans can determine whether he has financial interests tied to Russia? And why is he banning only a specific religion from this country?

This president seems exceptionally friendly to Vladimir Putin, whose human rights policies are nothing short of deplorable. It leads one to believe that this president is in Putin’s pocket. Only this can explain his bizarre behavior toward a foreign dictator.

Right-wing radio hosts and some Republicans in office accused President Obama of bowing to foreign governments and being weak. Where are the Limbaughs, Hannitys and Savages now on Trump’s love affair with Putin?

They are OK with it. Birds of a feather flock together. They are too busy kissing Trump’s ring and, of course, justifying an American president catering to a foreign dictator. I guess Trump wants to emulate this dictator.

Another, undisclosed, secret meeting with Russians - this time with candidate Trump.

Another day, another revelation indicating the White House is occupied by a compromised agent of a foreign dictator.

After spending the week acting like an ass on the world stage during the NATO summit, where he danced with, and praised, fascist dictators and insulted our democratic allies, Trump returned home to a nation inundated with mounting evidence that their so-called President colluded with an anti-democratic autocrat to put his orange, greed-centered, unworthy arse in the Oval Office.

Hours after it was reported that Trump is moving towards restoring the two diplomatic compounds the Obama Administration closed in retaliation for Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election, NBC News reported that so-called President Trump is personally under FBI investigation for an undisclosed meeting that he, his trust-funded son-in-law Jared Kushner and racist henchman, Jeff Sessions had with the Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak at a campaign event in 2016.

Yes, that's right. Yet another "undisclosed" meeting they conveniently "forgot," I'm sure.

New Tapes Reveal Trump Lewdly Discussing his Daughter, Black Women, Threesomes, and More

In one clip, Howard Stern asks if he can call Ivanka “a piece of ass.”

Several of the clips feature Trump discussing Ivanka’s physique. In a September 2004 interview, Stern asks Trump if he can refer to Ivanka as “a piece of ass.” Trump says yes. “My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka,” says Trump, and after a bit of back and forth, Stern asks: “Can I say this? A piece of ass,” to which Trump responds with “Yeah.” In an October 2006 interview, when Stern made a comment about Ivanka’s breasts and asked if she had gotten implants, Trump responded with, “She’s actually always been very voluptuous. She’s tall, she’s almost 6 feet tall and she’s been, she’s an amazing beauty.”

Ewwww! Donald Trump’s creepy flirting with Irish TV reporter in Oval Office

DONALD Trump has been filmed flirting with a TV reporter while in the middle of a phone call to the new Irish Prime Minister.

Social media users blasted Trump’s comments – describing him as “creepy” and the fact he singled her out as “disgusting”.

One Twitter user wrote: "The fact that our President pointed out a woman and called her over to comment on her looks should disgust you. This is disgusting".

Another added: "Trump literally called you over just to look at you? What an inappropriate, disgusting, misogynistic creep. This is gross."

Ms Perry later described the White House encounter as “very bizarre”.

- Wow, looks like the crayons have broken, the play dough is full of sand and there appears to be a drastic shortage of therapy dogs. The snowflakes are melting

More pluses: In conjunction with those already listed
- Illegal immigrating is down drastically
- Laws are actually being enforced
- Withdraw from the Paris Accord
- Withdraw from TPP
- Renegotiating NAFTA
- Got NATO allies to increase their funding by making them realize they need us.
- VA employees being held accountable through the Veterans Accountability and Whistleblower Protection Act. This gives Secretary Shulkin the authority he needs to properly deal with or fire VA employees who fail to do their jobs. It shortens a years-long appeals process for disciplined employees and ensures that such employees will not be paid during disciplinary appeals. It also allows Shulkin to deny bonuses to underperforming employees and cut pensions for executives who misbehave. Under the law, VA employees who report misconduct within the organization will be protected from retaliation.

The stock market is making all time records and employment hiring keeps getting better.

Oh, and the House just passed Kate’s Law and made it illegal for sanctuary cities to harbor criminals (which it should have been anyway). But now there is no question that they have to comply with ICE. Of course the Senate and POTUS have to follow through.

Health Care: Pelosi’s double, Mad Max says 400 Billion Americans will lose health care. A more accurate rundown of the reported “deep cuts” in the Medicaid budget are actually just a slightly lower rate of growth than Democrats want, but we’d still be spending 18% more in nine years than we do now. Being that the bill isn’t written yet, anyone complaining will sound as logical as Mad Max.

The pair postponed their vacation to appear live on their MSNBC show in the wake of his Thursday morning tirade that drew outrage from across the political spectrum. They said they received calls and texts from concerned friends and family, but stressed that the president's disparaging remarks aren't really about them.

"We had so many people saying, 'Hope you're OK.' 'Hope you're OK,'" Scarborough said. "We're OK. The country's not."

Joe and Mika tweet furor: Trump goes low and lower. I miss Michelle Obama.

Alfred Doblin, The Record Opinion Published 7:49 a.m. ET June 30, 2017 | Updated 30 minutes ago

Trump is the 45th president of the United States. He cannot stoop to the level of the pig trough. This stomping in the manure must end.
Posted by: kyle585

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 11:04 AM

Nearly a year ago in Philadelphia, the cradle of our republic, the City of Brotherly Love, first lady Michelle Obama gave the most stirring speech of the Democratic National Convention. If she had been the party’s presidential nominee, the outcome might have been very different. Instead, she was a mom telling the world how she instructed her daughters as she raised them from girls into adulthood in the White House.

Obama spoke of her family’s values: “How we urge them to ignore those who question their father’s citizenship or faith. How we insist that this hateful language they hear from public figures on TV does not represent the true spirit of this country. How we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is: when they go low, we go high.”

The nation cheered. It did not listen. Or not nearly enough people listened. Certainly not candidate Donald Trump. Sadly not President Donald Trump.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 11:06 AM

Scarborough echoed Brzezinski’s remarks, stating, “We're OK. The country is not.” He continued by saying that Trump’s attacks are “much more vicious with women” because “he fears women.”

Scarborough put the tweets in the context of their national implications, warning, “This is one of the most dangerous times in recent American history, and we have a president who is attacking a cable news host because she dared make a joke about a ‘Time’ magazine cover.”

The host and former congressman said his worries go beyond questioning the president’s judgments and these actions may be a reflection of Trump’s well-being. He said that “somebody at the top of his campaign last summer said to me, we're all really worried about his emotional state.”

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 11:10 AM

When will liberals learn that it's not OK to launch personal attacks just because you are not able to debate policy?

For what it's worth, I don't condone POTUS tweets and I've never seen one episode of Morning Joe but looking at the replay of all of the insults that Mika & Joe have thrown at Trump and his family over the last six months I'm amazed that he didn't say something sooner! He's not a politician; he hasn't had the formal politician grooming and training his entire life like most others have. He's passionate and quick to punch back when punched first. But that's what makes him different and to a great extent, the reason he is in the office. Most of middle America who voted him in are sick of the "say what you think the people want to hear to the camera and say a totally different thing out the side of your mouth to your cronies" that have occupied DC for so many decades from both parties.

Again, not defending or condoning, but by the same token neither am I surprised or offended.

Jared Kushner Told Joe Scarborough: Talk to President Trump About ‘Enquirer’ Dirt

The president’s son-in-law advised the ‘Morning Joe’ host to speak to the president directly about an upcoming tabloid ‘hit piece.’

On Friday, MSNBC hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough made the explosive claim that three of President Donald Trump’s most senior White House aides “warned” the couple that the tabloid The National Enquirer would publish dirt on them unless they “begged” the president to intervene.

The Morning Joe co-hosts declined to name the multiple White House officials involved in this bizarre, ongoing feud. But one of those “top White House staff members” was senior advisor and Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, two White House officials confirmed to The Daily Beast.

As President Donald Trump ramped up his attacks against so-called “fake news” this week, one of his most detested news outlets, the Washington Post, reported that hanging prominently at several of the president’s golf clubs is an actual piece of fake news: a hoax Time cover featuring Trump looking quite imperious. “The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” one cover quote reads.

A spokeswoman for Time confirmed the cover never appeared, and the magazine has since requested that the Trump Organization remove the fake cover from Trump’s resorts. The bizarre revelation immediately prompted scorn, both on social media and throughout the late-night television circuit.

“That is the literal definition of fake news,” Seth Meyers said Wednesday. “This would be the saddest thing I’ve ever heard if it wasn’t the funniest thing I’ve ever heard.”

Brutal: Democratic 2018 Hopes Get Another Punch To The Gut From Left-Leaning Think Tank
Matt Vespa Matt Vespa |Posted: Jun 30, 2017 1:30 PM Share (12) Tweet
Brutal: Democratic 2018 Hopes Get Another Punch To The Gut From Left-Leaning Think Tank

The Democrats are lusting for the House takeover. In some weird way, they see their 0-4 record in special elections as an indicator that they’ll retake the lower chamber. Democrats say they’re over performing in these elections. Democrats say this is a good sign. Everyone else says they’re still losers, even CNN.

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) from the People’s Republic of Illinois said that she feels confident that Democrats will pick up 25 seats. Well, from the concrete fortress of urban, progressive America, that may be a possibility—just as this cohort thought that Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide. Everyone else, even The New York Times, is not so sure.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe tossed a wet blanket on the notion of a Democratic wave, noting the difficulties with candidate recruitment—no solid standout candidates—and the lack of a farm system to find those candidates. Nate Cohn at The New York Times noted that Democratic turnout for the GA-06 special election was the highest in a decade, but added that a) the Democratic path to the majority runs through red districts and Jon Ossoff’s defeat in Georgia showed the level of difficulty on that front; and b) even with the high Democratic turnout, the electorate could mirror that of 2016 which was favorable to Trump. In all, even with President Trump’s less than stellar approval rating, which usually is a good indicator for how midterm elections turn out for whichever party is occupying the White House, the GOP could retain the majority.

We’re not fighting an unpopular war that was growing increasingly out of control and corruption scandals haven’t hit the GOP leadership. Also, the Democrats were much more exposed heading into 2010 than Republicans. Also, for Democrats to win districts that trend Republican, having Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as the face of the party is a recipe for disaster. The House Minority Leader proved to be a contributing factor to Ossoff’s defeat to Republican Karen Handel in the most expensive House race in history. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH), who challenged Pelosi for the leadership position, conceded that she is more toxic than Trump in some parts of the country, and that the Democratic Party brand is just terrible right now. All of this isn’t necessarily the making for headwinds into these red districts. Now, Third Way, a left of center think tank, released a study showing that even if the Democrats sweep the suburbs, they’ll still fall short (via WaPo) [emphasis mine]:

The opposition party needs to win 24 seats to take control of the House in 2018. Understandably, operatives and handicappers have focused on the 23 districts that Republicans hold, which voted for Hillary Clinton last year. But some of the incumbents are very popular, with brands that are distinct from Trump’s, and they are unlikely to lose no matter how bad the headwinds become.
In other words, it’s inconceivable that Democrats run the table in those 23 districts. Even if they did, they’d still be one short. And Democrats must defend 12 seats in districts that Trump carried in 2016.
Third Way did a deep dive to try to understand what the 2018 playing field will look like. The center-left think tank focused on 65 “Majority Makers,” the battlegrounds where a majority would most likely be won.
[…]
They divided the swing districts into four categories: Thriving Suburban Communities, Left Behind Areas, Diverse/Fast-Growing Regions, and Non-Conformist Districts.
[…]
The numbers underscore how different even the 23 GOP-held Clinton districts are demographically. Many are suburban and overwhelmingly white. Others are rural and heavily Latino. Within the broad categories, there are stark differences on income, educational attainment and employment rates. More than half of adults in New Jersey’s 7th District, for example, graduated from college. Only 17 percent in California’s 10th District did.
“The most important takeaway is that there is no one kind of voter or district that can deliver the House for Democrats in 2018,” said Lanae Erickson Hatalsky, the vice president for social policy and politics at Third Way. “There’s been a lot of focus on suburban districts. There’s no doubt that those are important, but there are not enough of them to win the House.”
Hatalsky, who co-authored the report with Ryan Pougiales, emphasized that Democrats still would not win the House even if they could get every single 2016 Clinton voter who backed a Republican House candidate to turn out again in 2018 and cross over.
“You can’t get to a House majority without winning over Trump voters,” she said. “There are some people who definitely want to believe that they can because they still don’t know how to deal with Trump voters and are intimidated by the idea of appealing to them.”
Well, that certainly is a splash of cold water on those Democratic wave hopes. As of now, looks like low tide for the Left.

Poll: Unpopular Trump and Pence Are Still More Popular Than Democrats and the Media

A short and sweet bulletin to kick off your long holiday weekend. As the president flops around in the mud of salacious gossip, petty insults, and alleged blackmail -- and as the Republican Party consumes itself over an unpopular healthcare bill that they can't agree on, and have barely attempted to market to voters, despite seven years of big promises -- a new national survey confirms what one might expect: Donald Trump is an unpopular president:

Voters are souring on President Donald Trump and the GOP, and nearly 75 percent indicate they are either uneasy or alarmed about the way things are going in Washington, according to a Suffolk University/USA Today national poll of registered voters. Trump’s unfavorable rating has risen 8 points, to 55 percent, since a March poll by Suffolk University/USA Today. Forty percent of voters now look on him favorably, compared to 45 percent in March. And 53 percent of voters polled this week disapprove of the job he is doing, compared to 44 percent in March.
His above-the fray Vice President fares a bit better, but isn't exactly crushing it: Pence's favorability rating is just about dead even, at (41/43). And the beleaguered, divided, frustrated Republican Party is in bad shape at (32/55). Historically, Democrats and their "Resistance" base should be primed for a big comeback, their string of special election losses notwithstanding. A blue wave may eventually build, but Democrats are facing one minor problem. Voters dislike them even more than the president they're resisting:

As you can see, the national press -- which has never hidden its disdain for conservatives and outright contempt for Trump -- is treading water alongside the object of their barely-concealed opposition. The president's favorable rating is higher than the media's, although his unfavorable numbers are worse. At (36/50), the public's dim view of the press is almost identical to their negative feelings on Democrats, perhaps appropriately. In another new survey out this week, the national political figure with the worst brand in America is...Nancy Pelosi, whom rank-and-file Democrats continue to support:
Among the overall electorate, 46 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of Pelosi, compared with 30 percent who view her favorably, according to a new Morning Consult/POLITICO poll. Pelosi doesn’t fare conspicuously worse than other congressional leaders, including House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.). Ryan is viewed unfavorably by 42 percent of Americans and viewed favorably by 37 percent.
The Morning Consult write-up asserts that Pelosi's numbers aren't "conspicuously worse" than Paul Ryan's, but their data doesn't back that up. He's five points underwater; she's 16 points underwater. She's also energizing to Republicans and toxic with independents:




The Free Beacon reports on GOP data suggesting that Pelosi is especially radioactive in swing districts being targeted by Democrats in 2018. No wonder Republicans are preparing to elevate and nationalize her profile yet again. Parting thought: Despite the unpopularity of the still-incomplete Senate healthcare bill, only 11 percent of respondents in the USA Today poll want to see Obamacare remain in place. Everyone else is split between repeal and major fixes. It's failing:

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 02:52 PM

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-trump-brzezinski-idUSKBN19L23I

Two television hosts assailed by Donald Trump questioned his mental health on Friday and charged that the White House had tried unsuccessfully to get them to apologize to the president for unfavorable coverage in exchange for his getting a negative tabloid story about them killed.

"He appears to have a fragile, impetuous, child-like ego that we've seen over and over again, especially with women," Mika Brzezinski, co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," said on the program.

"He attacks women because he fears women," added co-host Joe Scarborough, a former Republican U.S. congressman.

Brzezinski and Scarborough fired back on their program and in an opinion piece in The Washington Post after Trump's Twitter messages on Thursday, which attacked them, particularly Brzezinski, in highly personal terms.

Trump called Brzezinski "low I.Q. Crazy Mika" and alleged that she was "bleeding badly from a face-lift" when she visited his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida around New Year's Eve. He called Scarborough "Psycho Joe."

Scarborough said Trump packed "five or six lies into two tweets," including mischaracterizing their meetings at Mar-a-Lago. Brzezinski said she has never had a face-lift.

According to this measure, 47 Republican-held House seats are more Democratic-leaning than Georgia 6 is. Democrats need to pick up only 24 seats to win back the House, so even though this is the type of seat that Democrats probably want to be competitive in, taking Georgia 6 is not a necessity for taking back the House.

“President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president,” the "Morning Joe" co-hosts wrote. “The president’s unhealthy obsession with ‘Morning Joe’ does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs.”

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 03:45 PM

rump on Thursday was widely condemned by fellow Republicans for dramatically escalating his long-running feud with Brzezinski and Scarborough, with multiple lawmakers saying the tweets were beneath the office of the president.

"I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don't watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came ... to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year's Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!" Trump tweeted Thursday morning.

On Friday, Trump revived his attacks, despite the flood of Republicans implicitly telling him to rein in his Twitter habit.

“Watched low rated @Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show,” Trump tweeted.

Brzezinski and Scarborough had addressed the alleged National Enquirer story in their op-ed, writing, “This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.”

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 03:46 PM

Scarborough hit back at Trump's latest tweet, writing, "I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven't spoken with you in many months." He followed up with a second tweet asking, "Why do you keep lying about things that are so easily disproven? What is wrong with you?"

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 03:47 PM

Brzezinski disputed that her show had attacked Trump. “The White House claims we attack him,” she said. “No, we report on his lies. We are upset when he doesn’t tell the truth and he bullies people.”
Posted by: kyle585

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 06/30/17 03:49 PM

Scarborough also recalled a story he said he had not previously told, in which a “very well-known” member of Congress called the morning cable news host after a White House meeting that had been called for the president to pitch House members on health care legislation. In that meeting, Scarborough said the member of Congress relayed, Trump had labeled Scarborough “a joke” but was “vicious” when he turned to Brzezinski. “And this congressman said ‘I’ve been in politics for decades, and never seen anything like this,’” Scarborough recalled without naming the lawmaker. “He said, ‘I don’t know why I’m calling you, but I was just scared. I was scared for you guys, and I wanted you to know.’”

CNN Producer: American Voters Are ‘Stupid as S**t’ And We All Know Trump Is A ‘F**king Crazy’ Clown

Matt Vespa Matt Vespa |Posted: Jun 30, 2017 11:30 AM Share (587) Tweet
CNN Producer: American Voters Are ‘Stupid as S**t’ And We All Know Trump Is A ‘F**king Crazy’ Clown

Throughout this week, James O’ Keefe’s Project Veritas has been uncovering what’s going on inside the control rooms of CNN. John Bonifield, a producer with the network’s Atlanta office, was captured by PV reporters saying that the Russian collusion story was “mostly bulls**t,” but it’s great for ratings. CNN contributor and former green jobs czar under the Obama administration Van Jones was caught admitting that the Russia story is a “big nothing burger.” Now, associate producer for New Day Jimmy Carr is caught saying that American voters are “stupid as s**t,” and that the network feels President Trump is “f**king crazy.” Carr also takes a swipe at Kellyanne Conway, the Counselor to the President, as the blonde who looks like she got hit with a shovel. He also says that President Trump isn’t a Republican, and that he’s probably paid for abortions.

Concerning party affiliation, yes—Trump isn’t a conservative Republican. He’s a right-leaning populist, though alleging that he paid for abortions without offering any proof is; well—in keeping with CNN’s standards nowadays. Yes, some of their reports are fine, but when it comes to Trump and especially Russia—things have gone off the hinges.




PV Reporter 2: CNN is impartial, right?

Jimmy Carr: In theory

PV Reporter 2: What’s the view of Trump in like the media circle and places?

Carr: On the inside, we all recognize he is a clown, that he is hilariously unqualified for this, he’s really bad at this and that he does not have America’s best interests. We recognize he’s just f**king crazy.”

Here’s the deal, this is a man who’s not actually a Republican. He’s not actually a Republican. He just adopted that because that was the party he thought he could win in. He doesn’t believe anything that these people believe.

The man is on his third wife. I guarantee you he’s paid for abortions. He doesn’t give a s**t about abortion. He doesn’t care about gay marriage. He doesn’t even really care about the budget.

PV Reporter 1: Would it be fair to question the, I don’t want to be rude here, I’ll be careful how I put it, you’re apparently some percentage Irish or Scottish. Would it be fair to question the intellect of the American voter?

Carr: Oh no. They’re stupid as s**t.

Now, and of course the thing that pisses the White House off so much, because we actually had that awful Kellyanne Conway. You know, the blonde.

PV Reporter 2: Who?

Carr: Kellyanne Conway

PV Reporter 2: What does she look like? Is she the one with the…

Carr: She looks like she got hit with a shovel.
Van Jones has tried to push back on his on-camera role in these investigations, calling them a hoax (via The Hill):

“If you take any one line of my argument out of context, you can use it to pull off a hoax. That’s what O’Keefe’s minions did,” Jones wrote in the CNN article.

“The notion that I think Trump is innocent of all wrongdoing in Russiagate is ludicrous. But perhaps the people on team Trump can afford to live in a fantasy world," he continued.
In both cases, Jones and Bonifield are admitting that there is nothing to the Russian collusion hysteria engulfing the news media. In both cases, the two are admitting that the story is shoddy, with Bonifield saying it’s great for CNN’s finances. Even if there was selective editing, you can't edit that. They said it. O’Keefe tried to confront network president Jeff Zucker outside of his home in New York City. He didn’t feel like talking.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4570870/Top-Dem-No-smoking-gun-Russia-lot-smoke.html


Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told CNN's Jake Tapper that he hasn't seen any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians, yet.

'Listen, there's a lot of smoke. We have no smoking gun at this point. But there is a lot of smoke,' Warner said on Sunday's State of the Union.

Former Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Monday said President Donald Trump’s recent comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin may be “the most anti-American statement” ever made by a commander-in-chief.

“I’m actually incredulous that the president would make a statement like that,” McCaffrey told MSNBC.

“One could argue that’s the most anti-American statement ever made by the president of the United States. To confuse American values with Putin, who is running a criminal oligarchy.”

Is this it for Trump?

For months, Trump watchers have wondered: What will it take?

Meaning: What would finally force Republicans to face the fact, so obvious to so many, that President Trump isn’t quite right? Not in the correct sense but in the head sense.

The answer, apparently, is Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

“This is not normal,” people are finally saying in response to Trump’s latest Twitter attacks in which the president of the United States limboed under his own low bar and chastised Brzezinski and co-anchor/fiance Joe Scarborough with his usual knuckle-dragging flair. Applying his 140-character attention span, he squibbed:

“I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don’t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!”

MSNBC anchor Mika Brzezinski said President Trump's attacks "worry me about the country," on June 30. She and "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough pointed to Trump's "alarming" pattern of especially vicious attacks on women as Trump tweeted out more insults. (Jenny Starrs/The Washington Post)

Classic Trump.

This probably isn’t the way Brzezinski would have preferred things to go, but in Trump’s vernacular, she’s been cruisin’ for a bruisin’ for a long time. That is, she’s been calling out The Donald with everything but an engraved invitation to duel at dawn.

And, high time, I might add. For months during the early part of Trump’s campaign, “MoJo,” as the show is nicknamed, was a welcome station for the celebrity firing squad. Around Washington, people had begun referring to the morning manfest, where Brzezinski gamely serves as reluctant den mother, as “Morning Trump.” This was also the period when then-candidate Trump constantly bragged that he hadn’t spent any money on advertising — and no one wondered why. He regularly called in to the show, essentially running his campaign from Trump Tower.

Trump had ample coverage elsewhere as well. When your strength is branding and your name is the brand, there’s little challenge to getting airtime. Cable television anchors and producers not only became Trump’s unpaid marketers but also bear some of the responsibility/blame for Trump’s election. Then, things got strange. Trump won. Then Trump became even odder than usual, even according to his friends and others inclined to like him. Always fiercely competitive, obviously, as well as flawed, Trump nevertheless was able to control his worst impulses before becoming president, Scarborough and Brzezinski co-wrote in a Post op-ed Friday.

Or, perhaps, something is actually wrong with the guy. Plenty of physicians, psychiatrists and psychologists think so and have written me volumes in off-the-record diagnoses. A group of them have joined forces to co-write a book due out this fall.

It isn’t so much that The Donald always hits back, and harder, as his flacks boast. It’s that he’s so thin-skinned, such a political amateur — and so utterly lacking in the fine art of disregard — that he can’t let anything pass. This is the single greatest concern for the witted, not his idiotic tweets in the night. Impulsivity combined with narcissistic injury is a red flag to many for the man with access to the nuclear codes.

And so, as more and more Americans embrace “This is not normal” as the bumper sticker du jour, many are wondering again: Will this be it? Will the final straw be Brzezinski’s alleged badly bleeding face-lift, which she needlessly denied in the op-ed? She only tweaked some skin beneath the chin, she said. CNN’s Brian Stelter, meanwhile, has posted a photo of Brzezinski on the day in question and she shows no evidence of surgery and certainly not blood. What woman has a face-lift and goes bleeding to a famous club where tout le beau monde are partying?

To the point, is this it? My friends, don’t count on it.

Nothing will happen until GOP constituents start shouting and, remember, these are the same people Trump has taught to hate the media. Also, this is hardly the worst example of Trump’s errant charm. Yet, suddenly, his insulting Brzezinski, widely characterized as evidence of misogyny (what about “Psycho Joe”?), is supposed to send congressional Republicans into paroxysms of penitential rebuke-and-replace?

Brzezinski is wonder woman — smart, strong, wealthy — and engaged to marry her best friend. I seriously doubt she has been wounded by Trump’s pathetic second-grader taunts. But I get it. The most one can hope for these days is that enough Republican men can be shamed into defending Brzezinski, a woman many of them know personally — and who has thumbs-down power over potential guests on the show everybody in Washington watches.

Whatever works.

The National Inquirer is almost all fake news. The fact that the owner is a friend of Trump should be all we need to know about Trumps fake news and lies.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/did-trump-weaponize-the-national-enquirer-against-joe-and-mika

The president is a longtime pal of David Pecker, chief executive of the Enquirer’s parent company American Media Inc. as well as a member of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, who acknowledges putting his tabloid at the service of Trump’s campaign last year, according to a Pecker profile in the current New Yorker.

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer and strategic communications director Hope Hicks didn’t respond to text messages seeking comment. A third presidential aide scoffed via an eye-rolling text: “The things you chase and the ppl you believe…”

But the president himself, who periodically claims to ignore Scarborough and Brzezinski’s cable television commentary, confirmed in a tweet Friday morning that something involving himself, the MSNBC cohosts and the Enquirer had occurred.

But he disputed their narrative that White House aides advised them that the Enquirer story would never run if only Scarborough called the president to apologize. Scarborough said he refused.

“Watched low rated &#8234;@Morning_Joe for first time in long time. FAKE NEWS. He called me to stop a National Enquirer article. I said no! Bad show,” Trump claimed.

MSNBC’s It Couple, who in early May announced plans to marry each other after a decade on the air, interrupted a vacation Friday to appear on their Morning Joe program and relate their chilling anecdote.

If President Donald Trump or members of his administration told MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough that a National Enquirer hit piece would be published unless they provided the president with better coverage, that would be a crime, a Harvard law professor said.

A high-profile and powerful man takes to social media -- where he has tens of millions of followers -- to allege a prominent woman was "bleeding badly" after a plastic surgery operation.

If that high-profile man was the CEO of a major company, he would, at minimum, be forced to apologize, and, at most, be fired. If that high-profile man was an actor, he'd likely be blackballed by Hollywood for future roles.

Then why, when that person is the President of the United States, should we treat that sort of behavior any differently?
Donald Trump, from almost the moment he became a candidate for President two years ago, has set about making the outrageous ordinary. Attack John McCain for being captured and held for six years as a prisoner of war? Check! Reference the size of his genitals in a debate? Check! Make lewd comments -- on tape -- about how a prominent man can expect to be treated by women? Check!

There's a natural human tendency when faced with a series of behaviors considered outrageous or unacceptable to begin to slough them off. To normalize them. That's just Trump being Trump! He says stuff!

But, this is the President of the United States we are talking about. Someone who, whether he likes it or not, is a role model. Someone who has a profound influence on how not only we adults treat each other but how our children view the acceptable bounds of how to act toward one another.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Thursday said that President Trump has never promoted violence.

The comment came during a press briefing where Sanders repeatedly defended the president’s tweet attacking MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzenzinski.

"The president in no way form or fashion has ever promoted or encouraged violence.

Does Donald Trump have Grandiose Personality Disorder (GPD)? "Grandiose narcissists…know they are superior and will seek revenge or go into a vicious rage against those who don’t treat them with respect or dare to give them negative feedback. They may openly have multiple relationships/affairs and pride themselves on how many people see how wonderful they are. They can be very aggressive and dominance-seeking without empathy or remorse." According to Harvard professor and researcher Howard Gardner, Donald Trump is a "textbook" narcissist. In fact, he fits the profile so well that clinical psychologist George Simon told Vanity Fair, "He’s so classic that I’m archiving video clips of him to use in workshops." According to the Mayo Clinic, narcissistic personality disorder is "a mental disorder in which people have an inflated sense of their own importance, a deep need for admiration and a lack of empathy for others."

************************************************************

Think we’re in for a disastrous four years if Donald Trump is elected president?

You’re being optimistic. Given what some of our children are learning from him, it may take an entire generation to recover from the hateful rhetoric he has aimed at immigrants, Muslims and Blacks Lives Matter protesters.

Trump’s vitriol is making it off the campaign trail and into the lingua franca of children at an alarming rate. Just watch coverage from Trump rallies to hear the next phrases kids will be slinging at school.

“Build the wall!” That was the chant at a high school basketball game in Indiana last week, directed by kids from a majority-white school who held up Trump signs and yelled at the opposing players and fans, who were from a predominantly Latino school.

Get ’em out!” is what Trump screams at rallies when he sees Black Lives Matter and other protesters, even silent ones. This is not far off from what some third-graders allegedly said to two brown-skinned classmates in their Northern Virginia classroom.

You think kids aren’t going to play this out in the schoolyard?

Even if they’re not taking their phrases directly from Trump’s playbook, his orchestrated free-for-all has unleashed a growing atmosphere of hate.

I don’t know whether Trump was the inspiration for the kids on an all-white Annapolis-area hockey team who singled out the black players on my son’s team, calling them the N-word and harassing them throughout the game. But they heard those words somewhere. They learned that cruelty somewhere. And I don’t think it’s a stretch to blame their behavior on the nation’s growing tolerance of open displays of bigotry.

And I don’t know that the kids at the University of Southern California who threw eggs and hurled racial epithets at a student from Hong Kong over the weekend were acting directly on Trump’s orders. But there’s an anything-goes recklessness in the air that is certainly emboldening them.

GOPer Who Voted To Impeach Bill Clinton: Donald Trump Situation Is 'Much More Serious'

A former GOP congressman who voted to impeach President Bill Clinton in 1998 has hit out at the current commander in chief.

On Monday, former Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) told CNN International host Christiane Amanpour that President Donald Trump’s situation is “much more serious” than the scandal that ended up engulfing Clinton’s administration.

Inglis made his comments after Amanpour played out an interview from 1998 in which he explained just why Clinton should be impeached.


“There are issues around the world that require American leadership,” Inglis said in the archive clip. “The leader of the free world needs moral authority. And we’ve got a president who is sorely lacking in that regard.”

Amanpour asked Inglis how me measured Clinton’s “lack of moral authority” in the run up to his impeachment with what Trump currently “has or doesn’t have.”

“Well, I guess that young guy you were just playing there apparently hadn’t seen something called the Donald Trump show,” said Inglis of his younger self, before adding that Trump’s behavior “is much more serious than anything we ever accused Bill Clinton of.”

Inglis noted how Clinton’s impeachment involved “perjury with the underlying matter being a sexual affair.” Trump’s situation, however, was “something quite different.”

“Particularly when it gets into the Russia investigation and the firing of (former FBI Director) James Comey,” he added. “These are very serious matters.”

On Friday’s edition of CNN’s “Situation Room,” Representative Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) stated that in the investigation of collusion between the Trump camp and Russia, “there’s clearly a lot of smoke right now, which means there’s definitely some fire there.”

What’s Trump’s Secret Plan To Destroy ISIS? It’s Literally Obama's Exact Strategy


Donald Trump offered an alternative along the campaign trail to former President Barack Obama’s strategy on defeating the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), promising a "secret plan" that would ensure “total victory.”

Turns out, his strategy for wiping out the extremist terror group remains exactly the same as Obama’s, albeit with a few slight revisions to the implementation and bureaucracy involved.

Polish Crowd Chants ‘Donald Trump!’'USA! USA!'
'It’s such a great honor'
Jul 6, 2017


The Polish crowd attending President Trump's speech in Warsaw repeatedly interrupted his remarks with chants of "Donald Trump!" and "USA! USA!"

At a wreath-laying ceremony in Krasinski Square, the excited crowd broke out into an American-style, "USA! USA! USA!" chant.

Later, during Trump's prepared remarks, the crowd repeatedly interrupted the speech with a "Donald Trump! Donald Trump!" chant.

"The story of Poland is the story of a people who have never lost hope, who have never been broken and who have never ever forgotten who they are," Trump said in Warsaw, before the crowd began chanting his name.

"Thank you so much, thank you," he replied. "Thank you so much. A great honor."

When President Trump arrives in Poland, in Warsaw’s Krasinski Square, to speak on Thursday, he’ll be greeted by an enthusiastic audience of supporters — the Polish government has made sure of it.

According to news reports out of the country, Poland’s conservative ruling party is busing supporters to the capital to boost Trump’s ego. This is not just a courtesy to the U.S. president, who’s been accused of traveling with his own gaggle of human applause machines, it’s the fulfillment of a promise made to the White House, the AP reports.

Newsweek says all members of the country’s ruling party have been told to bring 50 supporters to Warsaw for the event, described by one lawmaker as a “great patriotic picnic.” As the magazine notes, for old-timers in Poland, this will be a familiar scene:

The tactic is a mirror of that adopted when Poland was a member of the Soviet bloc, and the Communist Party would bus agreeable crowds to Warsaw to greet visiting dignitaries from Moscow.

Among those in the adoring crowd that greets Trump will be the country’s president, Andrzej Duda. Elected in the summer of 2015, Duda is a member of the right-wing Law and Justice Party, and, like Trump, he’s an anti-immigration nationalist with an authoritarian streak.

Thousands of anti-capitalist protesters massed in a harborside square and engaged in small-scale skirmishes with police ahead of massive demonstrations planned as an angry counterpoint to a summit of the world’s top industrialized powers. This year the protests have gained added momentum as a stand against President Trump and his brand of “America First” populism.

Anything that is critical of Trump is fake news regardless of the source. Trump said the news media is the enemy of the people. Try living in the country of Trumps buddy Putin. There everything is fake news but the people don't know it because Putin controls all the news.

Mainstream Media Can't Avoid June's Good Economic News

The economy is in pretty good shape, according to last month's labor statistics. Heck, the numbers even exceeded analysts' expectations.

The U.S. economy added 220,000 jobs in June, the best showing since February and well above analysts' expectations of 174,000.
The Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics also said the number of employed Americans -- which set records in February, March and April -- set another record in June, at 153,168,000 employed.
And the number of Americans not in the labor force -- after four straight monthly gains – dropped a bit to 94,813,000. (CNS News)
The unemployment rate remains at 4.4 percent. It could get down to 4.0 percent by January 2019 if it continues to fall at the same rate it did from the end of 2015 to the end of 2016, according to the Economic Policy Institute's projections.

The labor force participation rate rose 0.1 percent to 62.8 percent. In its report, the BLS excluded Americans who are retired, students, homemakers, the disabled, and any other individuals who have stopped looking for employment.

House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady credited Friday's positive report with the GOP's effort to roll back regulations.

“With President Trump in the White House, Republicans have already taken historic steps to roll back damaging regulations that have discouraged investment, dragged down our nation’s productivity, and left too many workers waiting for better employment opportunities.
“Our action so far is only the beginning."
He added that Republicans are planning to improve these numbers by enacting meaningful tax reform.


Conservative groups were amused that the mainstream media was actually providing the president some positive coverage, for a change.

Of course not. Do you even read what you post?
Obama set the stage for current conditions. The economy under Trump is simply riding the precise wave generated under his predecessor and at the same rate. Roughly 2% annual increase. Same with improved employment figures and the stock market. No relevant improvements over Obama's numbers. Generally, the result of eight years of well thought-out policies... and the day's still young. Besides, Consumer Confidence is a very short-lived commodity and Trump hasn't created any relevant, new policies that would account for that.

I'm sure you'll be equally as hard on Trump for creating mostly low-paid service jobs? whistle

Nice attempt at "reinvigorating" very old news, though.


Consumer confidence booms under Trump; the economy, not really:

You're Fired: Trump Administration Axed Over 500 'Misbehaving' Veterans Affairs Workers Since January
Matt Vespa

The scandal that engulfed Veterans Affairs was appalling. It rightfully put the whole department under the microscope, but the system isn’t fixed. In 2015, there were reports that hundreds of thousands of veterans, who were backlogged, were no longer living. That same year, a VA inspector general report said that estimated 307,000 veterans might have died while waiting for care. There were also questionable expenditures the VA made, like spending $420 million to solar panel their hospitals, as patients waited to see a doctor. Recently, a VA hospital in Los Angeles lost around 100 patients (43 percent of it 225 patients) between October 2014 and August of 2015 while waiting for care. Things needed to be shaken up. As the VA disclosed today, more than 500 employees have been axed since January (via Washington Examiner):

Department of Veterans Affairs officials have fired more than 500 misbehaving employees since January, according to data posted online Friday.
VA Secretary David Shulkin touted his agency's decision to publish its efforts to hold VA employees accountable, unveiling new requirements for updating the public on personnel actions.
"Veterans and taxpayers have a right to know what we're doing to hold our employees accountable and make our personnel actions transparent," Shulkin said in a statement. "Posting this information online for all to see, and updating it weekly, will do just that."
The VA has removed 526 employees since Jan. 20, according to the accountability report released on Friday. Agency officials have demoted another 27 employees and temporarily suspended an additional 194 employees for longer than two weeks. The list does not include names but shows positions.
Last month, President Donald Trump signed into law a Veterans Affairs reform bill that would better protect whistleblowers and streamline the process to fire incompetent employees.

Trump Jr.’s emails offer a revelation unlike any other in the Russia probe

Donald Trump Jr.’s emails are the clearest indication yet that Trump campaign officials and family members were willing to deal with a foreign adversary in their mutual goal of taking down Hillary Clinton, and their revelation is dramatic proof that the Russia investigation is alive with no end in sight.

Well, it's official. The British Government and the US Government have announced that Donald Trump will be postponing his visit to the UK until 2018. Now, the reason for this is because, and this has been confirmed by British media and a phone call between Teresa May and Donald Trump last month, is that Donald Trump doesn't want to go visit London. He doesn't want to go over to Britain because he's afraid he'll be met with protesters.

Now he's not afraid somebody's going to hurt him or harm him or threaten him. He just doesn't want to go over there and cause a big scene and be immediately met with opposition because people over there are opposed, according to them, to his divisive politics. So Donald Trump has decided, even though it is customary, and this would be a diplomatic visit, after all, he does have business to discuss, with the leaders of the British Government, as they're trying to work out a trade deal between the United States and the UK. And he's going to postpone it because he is afraid of protesters. Because he doesn't want those mean old people in the streets with their signs telling him that they don't like him. That is how weak our President of the United States currently is.

This man is so thin-skinned that he is unwilling to go work on a trade deal with another country, something he promised he would do during his campaign, because he doesn't want people saying they don't like him. Now of course, according to Trump himself, he's saying he's doing this because he doesn't want to disrupt anything over there. It isn't one of these protesters interrupting the daily lives of people. He's doing it for you. He doesn't want to screw up your life because these people have nothing better to do.

When in reality he's hoping that maybe by 2018 the anti-Trump fervor over in the UK will have died down a bit, and he can sneak on over there and make his appearance and everything will be fine. But the groups organizing protesters against Donald Trump have made it clear that they are going to be ready at a moment's notice to appear wherever, whenever Donald Trump shows up in the United Kingdom, including his Scotland golf course of Turnberry, which it has been hinted at that Donald Trump will go visit sometime within the next few days as he heads over to France for Bastille Day.

Now, Trump obviously has many, many problems. But this particular issue, that he won't travel to Britain, to work on a trade deal for a diplomatic visit because he's afraid of protesters, what does that say to the rest of the world about the United States? How are our enemies going to look at this? And say, "Oh, that's a man we should be afraid of. Maybe we need to stop being so horrible." No. They know they can get under Trump's skin and undermine his administration without dropping a single bomb or committing an attack. All they have to do is organize a few protesters to say, "We don't like your policies." That's how you defeat Donald Trump, and he just gave that blueprint out to everybody on this planet.

Trump Makes Progress Packing Courts With Conservative Picks

Kevin Daley
Supreme Court Reporter

A Senate panel cleared several of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees Thursday, just hours before the White House announced its fifth slate of judicial candidates.

The day was a productive one for an administration facing an unprecedented number of vacancies on federal courts.

The Senate Judiciary Committee voted to advance the confirmation of several Trump nominees to federal appeals courts Thursday morning. John Bush, a Louisville lawyer in private practice, and Damien Schiff, a public interest litigator, were each approved by the committee on a party-line vote. Bush was nominated for a seat on the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, while Schiff was tapped for a 15-year term on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.

Kevin Newsom’s nomination to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals advanced to the full Senate 18-2.

Schiff and Bush in particular faced a bruising confirmation hearing, as lawmakers grilled the pair on inflammatory posts written on various law blogs. Schiff referred to Justice Anthony Kennedy as a “judicial prostitute” in a 2007 post on the Omnia Omnibus blog, while Bush called Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz a “sore loser” for declining to endorse the president during the Republican National Convention in 2016.

Cruz is a member of the judiciary committee.

Their nominations will now proceed to the full Senate for a final confirmation vote.

Conservative legal commentators have enthusiastically praised Newsom, Bush, and Schiff as solid picks with excellent jurisprudential bona fides.

“Thank you to President Trump for keeping your campaign promise and continuing to pick excellent nominees, including those who were voted on today,” said Carrie Severino chief counsel of the conservative Judicial Crisis Network.

The White House submitted another round of nominees Thursday afternoon. All 11 candidates were named to judicial vacancies in district courts across the south.

Several of the nominees were named to courts facing “judicial emergencies,” including the Middle District of Tennessee, and the Northern District of Georgia. Judicial emergencies exist when filings per judge or panel exceed a certain threshold.

There are currently 137 vacancies in the federal courts.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 07/16/17 06:11 AM

EXCELLENT ARTICLE! BUT IT IS A SHAME WHERE WE ARE SURELY HEADED.

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2...s-a-home-215380

The scandal with no name took an accelerating turn this week as the New York Times uncoiled three stunning stories about a June 9, 2016, meeting in Trump Tower where Donald Trump’s president’s kin and campaign brain trust conferred with a Russian emissary and her entourage. The naming convention for political scandals insists that we incorporate a place name into it—Watergate, Teapot Dome, Whitewater, Chappaquiddick, My Lai, Abu Ghraib, Iran Contra, et al. In observance of this rule, the disquieting meeting in which a Russian offered dirt on Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and then-campaign director Paul Manafort in the Manhattan skyscraper suggests “Trump Kowtower” as the carnival’s best appellation.

Starting this week, President Donald Trump and crew can no longer complain that there is no “there” to the scandal, or that it’s a media hoax, or that it’s a “witch hunt,” or that Hillary Clinton did far worse, or that the Democratic Party is using it as an excuse to discredit the president’s November victory. Now and forever, with no ambiguity, Baby Donald owns all 58 floors of this scandal—every penthouse, elevator, closet, and garbage chute. Just as the Watergate scandal didn’t start at the Watergate complex—Nixon’s plumbers burgled the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist almost a year before their most memorable caper—Trump Kowtower didn’t start on the 25th floor of 725 5th Ave. Trump had been toiling in the Russian field for decades for an opportunity like this, smothering Vladimir Putin with flattery while looking for hand- and toe-holds and a route to its summits of power and money. American pundits might have thought the Trump candidacy would be a sham, but Russians officials were chatting about a Trump candidacy as early as 2015, CBS News reports, citing intelligence intercepts. Trump and his associates have ingratiated themselves with both the Russian government and its oligarchs in a non-stop fashion. This meeting looks like a payoff for those efforts.

The email chain Junior tweeted this week that scheduled the Trump Kowtower meeting fuses Junior, Kushner, and Manafort firmly to the Russian bosom that Trump has coveted. No matter what additional spume of lies the Trump team pours into the news cycle, no matter how they and the president mock the idea of Russian interference in the election (a “nothing burger,” Reince Priebus called it), the investigation has trundled to a place beyond the president’s power to redirect. All the arm-waving, shouting, and tweeting in the world can’t erase the fact that Trump’s fish bit hard on the traitorous bait offered by music publicist Rob Goldstone in his introductory emails: “This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump.” And yet the president attempts that exact erasure, approving one of the most poisonous mendacities of this week: As the New York Times reported, he signed off on Junior’s original—and disingenuous—statement that sought to downplay the meeting to an innocent discussion about Russian adoption. Trump then had the moxie to praise his son’s meeting obfuscations as transparency! At a presser with French President Emmanuel Macron, Trump said that accepting such information was “very standard”!

If Junior figures as the Russian patsy in this operation, too much of a campaign rookie to know what he was getting into, then what does that make Jared Kushner? Its true mark? Nobody has worked longer or closer with Trump in the two years since he announced his candidacy. By virtue of his marriage to Trump’s favorite child, Kushner is almost as much family as Junior. Maybe more. As father to the presidential grandchildren, Kushner’s bond to Trump grows tighter. Like his father-in-law, he speaks fluent real estatese. Like a good son he happily takes the subordinate position. If the Russians sought to tilt the election in Trump’s favor, they couldn’t have sculpted a better co-conspirator from clay than Kushner.

Kushner’s troubles deepen by the moment, and he knows it. In a self-serving gesture this week, he advocated for a stronger defense of Junior inside the White House, writes Politico’s Tara Palmeri. Kushner has systematically decieved authorities about the extent of his contacts with foreigners by filing spotty SF-86 forms for his security clearance. First, Kushner neglected to mention the Trump Kowtower meeting, then avoided listing his can-I-get-a-backchannel to Russia talk with the Russian ambassador, and finally skipped recording his dealings with Sergey N. Gorkov, a Vladimir Putin ally and chairman of a Russian state bank. Kushner’s preternatural coziness with Russians and his furtiveness about encounters with them cloaks him in the Russian tricolor, not the stars and stripes, and poses the question of who he thinks he’s serving.

Shafer’s law of political scandals dictates that the greater number of participants in a scandal, the greater the likelihood that the thing will crumple under its own weight and collapse on its creators. The week brought several new characters into the Trump Kowtower saga, perhaps enough to test its load-bearing walls as journalists and government investigators fully examine their backgrounds and connections to Russia. The shadiest character in the president’s Russian orbit, émigré and one-time jail-bird Felix Sater, worked with Trump on the idea of building Trump towers all over the world. Where will the queries about Natalia Veselnitskaya lead? She’s the Russian government attorney who came to the Trump Tower meeting fanning a plastic folder containing printouts of what she said documented the flow of illegal money to the Democrats. Then there’s former Russian military intelligence officer and current lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin, who accompanied Veselnitskaya to the meeting, and who has waxed loquaciously about it. He recalls Veselnitskaya telling Junior, Kushner, and Manafort, “This could be a good issue to expose how the DNC is accepting bad money.”

And don’t forget the instigator of the meeting, Emin Agalarov, and his father, Putin-aligned Russian oligarch Aras Agalarov, with whom the Trump family has partnered and grown intimate over recent years. Agalarov senior makes a cameo in the Steele Dossier, the opposition research document that gave the Trump Kowtower scandal its first bump back in January when it was published in BuzzFeed. Just added to the cast is Russian translator Anatoli Samochornov, who attended the meeting in the tower and had previously worked with Veselnitskaya. Manafort is Russia-ed up, too, having taken millions representing the country’s interests in the United States and Ukraine. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn practically bleeds borscht. And the president? He all but ate out of Putin’s hand last week at the G-20 meeting.

Trump has long sought to build a Moscow tower. Turns out that while nobody was looking, the Russians built their own here.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 07/16/17 08:03 AM

A better perspective

Analysis: If We Really Want to Get to the Bottom of the Russia Matter, Trump Isn't the Only Story
Guy Benson

Before you start calling me a Trump apologist on Russia, read this post and this one. I emphatically am not, much to the chagrin of some our our readers. The Trump administration has a metastasizing credibility problem that deepens every time their public account shifts, or a previously-unknown detail (which many people assume was intentionally concealed) comes to light. Figures at the highest levels of Team Trump, led by the candidate's son, willfully met with a foreign national whom they believed to be in possession with damaging intelligence on their opponent. Donald Trump, Jr., and possibly the others, entered the encounter under the belief that the woman across the table was an agent of the Russian government, acting on behalf of the Kremlin to assist the Trump campaign. And then he denied that any such meeting had ever taken place, only confessing otherwise when the media caught wind of it and went public. Those are facts, and they're not good.

Nevertheless, there are other elements to this story -- and the wider controversy -- that ought to be explored, even if Democrats aren't as eager to talk about them. If we are genuinely concerned about learning all the facts about foreign interference in our elections, we can't exclusively focus on the (ample) parts of the story that reflect poorly on Donald Trump and his associates. For instance, what were the motivations of the female lawyer who was central to that infamous June meeting? Why did the Obama administration grant her access to the country, even though her expired visa extension was rejected? I'm not suggesting that high-level Obama officials conspired to let her in as part of some plot (it very well could have been a bureaucratic decision made much farther down the chain). But asking why and how she was in the US, where she linked up with a former Soviet counterintelligence officer and dual US citizen, are questions worth asking. Was she working at the behest of the Russian government, perhaps to make initial overtures and take the room's temperature for potential future collusion?

And not to get overly conspiratorial, might she have been a key player in some sort of set-up designed to entrap senior Trump officials in some way -- and if so, who was behind it? That possibility may not be as far-fetched as it might sound. (Note: Even if it was a trap, Trump Jr took the bait of his own volition). On this point, what should we make of her known connection to Fusion GPS, a Democratic opposition research firm responsible for commissioning the notorious and dubious anti-Trump dossier primarily compiled by a former British spy? Here's Erick Erickson:

Prevezon [a Russian company hit by US sanctions despised by Putin] hired Natalia Veselnitskaya, the lawyer who subsequently met with Donald Trump, Jr. Prevezon also hired Rinat Akhmetshin, described by Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA) as a former Soviet counterintelligence officer who specialized in disinformation and propaganda campaigns. Akhmetshin also retained Veselnitskaya as lawyer for a third party group that claims to be a Human Rights group. Prevezon and Akhmetshin also worked with a Democrat opposition research group called Fusion GPS...According to Senator Grassley, who wants Fusion GPS’s executives to testify to Congress, “Fusion GPS was apparently simultaneously working on the unsubstantiated dossier alleging collusion between Trump presidential campaign associates and Russia” while also working with Prevezon to overturn the Magnitsky Act. Suddenly it seems more than a coincidence that Prevezon’s lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya, has a meeting with Donald Trump, Jr. at the time Fusion GPS is putting together a dossier claiming the Trump campaign had been meeting with Russians.
And Josh Rogin in the Washington Post:

This week’s revelations about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer have shined a new spotlight on a small Washington opposition research firm that worked with her on a legal case for years and then subsequently commissioned a dossier full of salacious allegations of the Russian government’s attempts to collude with the Trump presidential campaign. The firm, Fusion GPS, will be one subject of a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing next week that was planned well before the story broke of Trump Jr.’s June 2016 meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. Fusion GPS says it had no involvement in the meeting although it did work on a lawsuit that involved Veselnitskaya for more than two years. The firm’s work on the Trump dossier was on a different timeline.
The co-founder of Fusion GPS, the Democratic oppo group, has declined the Senate's invitation to testify under oath next week. Perhaps it's time for a subpoena to make his appearance compulsory, not voluntary. Let me stress that there's no smoking gun here at all, and we should proceed with caution -- which has been my advice throughout this entire imbroglio. But we cannot simply assume that there's 'nothing to see here' regarding the known fact that the woman in that Trump Jr meeting has established ties to the Democratic organization that commissioned the anti-Trump, Russia-related dossier. That seems...odd to me. If there's any credible evidence linking Democrats to the Russians, or an effort to ensnare Trump's campaign in a compromising position vis-a-vis Russia, that should be fodder for the special counsel investigation. I trust Robert Mueller is on it.

Two 'on the other hand' counter-points: First, if the Democrats successfully goaded senior Trump officials into doing shady things with the Russians in order to use it against Trump in the campaign (Hillary called him Putin's "puppet" in a nationally-televised debate), why didn't they leak the meeting, or the email chain, before the election? In other words, if this was a Democratic set-up, as Erickson tentatively concludes, why didn't they pull the proverbial trigger? Second, unlike the timing of this "coincidence," which I don't find especially compelling, this one raises my eyebrows. Allahpundit's analysis of it is solid, running through the various scenarios, including my (and this former CIA officer's) theory that Ms. Veselnitskaya was a Moscow cut-out priming the pump for possible collusion by gauging the Trump campaign's interest in accepting anti-Hillary information.

Last point: As I mentioned Thursday night, while I'm appalled by the notion of American campaigns coordinating with foreign governments or entities to win a domestic election, Democrats who are horrified by the escalating allegations against Trump can't just pretend that their own history of similar or related conduct doesn't exist. One such example was from the 2016 election, and the nexus of a DNC operative and the Ukrainians, whose joint opposition research on Trump was "occasionally shared with officials from the DNC and Clinton's campaign." The Daily Beast has published a "debunker story," confidently dismissing this pro-Trump talking point as "BS." They call the argument "shockingly weak," relying on "deliberate misrepresentation, wishful thinking, and bizarre false-equivalence." Their primary evidence? Uh, the word of Democrats:

An early paragraph in the story itself specifically states that Ukrainian efforts “were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.” Still, Trump’s team and his fervent supporters are now seizing upon the old report to try to paint the Ukrainian effort as the bigger bogeyman than Russian election meddling...“[The] DNC consultant WAS NOT repping DNC in mtgs w/ [Ukraine] officials, while DJT, Jr. WAS repping Dad’s campaign in mtg w/ [Russia]-linked” attorney, Vogel tweeted on Wednesday in response to the White House using his past reporting...One DNC official anonymously told the news outlet that the committee did not use her research or her findings. An early paragraph in the story itself specifically states that Ukrainian efforts “were far less concerted or centrally directed than Russia’s alleged hacking and dissemination of Democratic emails.” Still, Trump’s team and his fervent supporters are now seizing upon the old report to try to paint the Ukrainian effort as the bigger bogeyman than Russian election meddling.
I'm sorry, but this is not even close to an airtight rebuttal. Just because the DNC consultant claims she wasn't officially representing the DNC with the Ukrainians doesn't make it true, nor does it make it relevant. The Ukrainian government (whose interests are obviously more aligned with America's than Russia's) was knowingly partnering with a DNC researcher, who passed along their joint work to the DNC and the Clinton camp. An anonymous denial that the Democrats never used any of it is laughably thin. Some of Trump's defenders are surely overplaying their hands by trying to draw a full equivalency here -- which doesn't add up -- but I'm not. I don't see the Ukraine situation as the "bigger bogeyman." I do see it as a documented example of the Democrats working with a foreign government to politically wound their opponent, which we are told ought to be totally verboten. I don't disagree with that conclusion, but I do see inconsistency on the Democrats' part, and the Daily Beast column explaining it away isn't persuasive.

Putin has to be blackmailing Trump on something big time.

http://thehill.com/homenews/318086-retir...nt-ever-said-by

Former Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Monday said President Donald Trump’s recent comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin may be “the most anti-American statement” ever made by a commander-in-chief.

“I’m actually incredulous that the president would make a statement like that,” McCaffrey told MSNBC.

“One could argue that’s the most anti-American statement ever made by the president of the United States. To confuse American values with Putin, who is running a criminal oligarchy.”

Trump in an interview pushed back when Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said Putin is “a killer.”

“There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What, you think our country is so innocent?" Trump said.

McCaffrey told MSNBC that the president's comments shed light on “an astonishing state of affairs,” adding that “it’s hard to know what to think about it.”

Putin "kills people abroad and at home," he said, also touching on the imprisonment of journalists, seizures of business property and invasions of Crimea and eastern Ukraine.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 07/16/17 11:59 AM

Conservative author Quin Hillyer wrote in a blog post that Trump should step down for cozying up to Russia. (here)

http://quinhillyer.com/trump-should-resign/#Jy2CXK5SL8usleR6.99

President Donald Trump must resign.

This is not a matter of whether he personally did or did not commit a punishable crime. This is a matter of a president being hopelessly compromised because his own longstanding and weird advocacy of Russian interests, in combination with the now irrefutable proof that his closest family members and campaign chief deliberately took a meeting advertised as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump,” and in combination with Trump firing an FBI director specifically (in Trump’s own words) because Trump was upset with the director’s conduct of the Russia probe.

This is a president whose conduct vis-a-vis the single most dangerous nation (in terms of nuclear weapons capability plus hostility toward American interests around the globe) will now be forever under a cloud. The American people absolutely cannot trust Trump’s objectivity about Russian intentions and Russian actions.

It doesn’t matter what ended up coming from the meeting. Trump Jr accepted the meeting under the impression that this was a “Russian government attorney” working as part of the “Russian government’s” attempt to help his father’s campaign. This was precisely at a time when the Trump campaign already had been coming under public attack for the elder Trump’s repeated defenses of Vladimir Putin and when rumors already were flying all over the place about “Russia-Trump connections.”

And this is from a family which for 30 years had sought business in Russia and which at least since 2008 had, according to Trump Jr., been in a situation in which “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets.” And that’s just a sampling of the strange and longstanding Trump dealings with shady Russian interests.

This is an utterly untenable situation. For the good of the country, Trump must lance the boil, and resign.

To repeat: The entire Trump camp is hopelessly compromised vis-a-vis Russia, at the very least in terms of the ability to engender public trust. This is bad for the country.
Trump must resign. Trump must resign. Trump must resign.

Note: A longer version of this piece, with a much fuller explanation of why Trump should resign for the good of the country, ran here at PJ Media.

Re: The Trump effect continues! NO WINNING! - 07/17/17 03:17 AM

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017...ency/478470001/

The time for a turnaround is tightening.

The problem for President Trump is not just that he's had a bumpy beginning in office – so did John Kennedy and Bill Clinton, among others. It's also that he's heading into the second half of his first year in the White House without yet applying lessons learned the hard way about imposing discipline, compartmentalizing scandal and adjusting course.

"It's a presidency under siege," Leon Panetta, a Democratic elder who helped rescue another embattled White House as chief of staff for President Clinton, said in an interview. "Unless some dramatic changes are made, I think there's a real question about whether the presidency can survive."

The first six months of Trump's presidency were brutal.

The next six months could well be worse.

As the midpoint of his crucial first year approaches Thursday, a steady stream of disclosures about contacts between Trump's team and Russians who may have involved in election meddling has transfixed Washington. When it comes to issues closer to Americans' lives back home, the president is still in search of his first major legislative victory on a core campaign promise — to replace Obamacare with a "wonderful" new health care system, say, or to cut taxes, or to launch a massive investment in infrastructure, or to build a wall across the Mexican border.

Allies, critics and historians are watching the clock. While presidents are elected to four years in office, all political time is not created equal. For his modern predecessors, the first year or so after an election is when campaign promises typically are met and signature legislation passed.

An ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday showed Trump's standing, which already had set record lows, deteriorating more. His 36%-58% approve-disapprove rating is down six percentage points from the 100-days mark and the lowest for any president at six months in the 70-year history of polling.

What's alarming for those who want the president to succeed is this: The political moment may never be better for Trump than it is now.

He continues to hold relatively solid support from the voters who put him in the White House, and he has the benefit of a House and Senate both under GOP control. Republicans fear and Democrats hope that won't be true after the midterm elections next year.

Even so, Trump is having the most difficult first year of any modern president, says Barbara Perry, director of presidential studies at the University of Virginia's Miller Center. "It comes from his unprecedented lack of government or military experience, and his unprecedented personality," she says.

On the theory that the first year — not the first 100 days — represent the make-or-break time, The Miller Center launched The First Year Project in October 2015 to study the challenges the new president faces in the future and the experiences of his predecessors in the past.

Perry rates two modern presidents as having "A-plus" first years: Franklin Roosevelt, who tackled the Depression by pushing his New Deal programs through Congress with dizzying speed, and George H.W. Bush, who skillfully oversaw the end of the Cold War. She gives George W. Bush an A for delivering on campaign promises of a tax bill and education reform, and for his response in the months after the 9/11 terror attacks.

But she gives Kennedy a B-minus, though with credit for applying lessons he learned during the Bay of Pigs fiasco, and Clinton a C-minus, for early chaos and controversy over appointments and priorities.

And Trump?

"Maybe in the D-plus realm," she says.

The comparison with Nixon shows that it will take another year or more before it gets so bad for Trump that he resigns.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/2...ails/477074001/

President Trump is under siege, unable to escape the darkening cloud of Russian interference in last year's election. As his presidency nears its six-month mark on Thursday, questions and protesters followed him even to his Trump National Golf Club resort in Bedminster, N.J. There he spent the weekend watching the U.S. Women's Open golf tournament and launching Twitter salvos at his detractors.

Watching the news it is hard not to feel echoes of perilous times when other presidents were under siege, or when government institutions were tested by crises.

But it is those dark days that should give Americans a measure of reassurance and hope. Our government is far more durable than any single president.
The Founders created an ingenious system of checks and balances, with three independent branches, that has triumphed over crises throughout our nation’s history.

Watergate was one of the greatest tests of the nation's stability, and there were several moments when it seemed the rule of law might crumble.

In October 1973, when Richard Nixon fired special prosecutor Archibald Cox and attempted to shut down the independent investigation of the Watergate affair, he pushed the system to its breaking point. The blowback in Washington and across the country was so intense that Nixon backed down and turned over several White House tapes that Cox had demanded. A new special prosecutor was appointed and the investigation continued. The next year, after Nixon refused to turn over more of the tapes, the Supreme Court voted unanimously that even a president must abide by a subpoena in a criminal case. Again, Nixon complied. Within months, after the House Judiciary Committee (including six Republicans) voted to impeach him, Nixon resigned rather than put the country through more turmoil. His vice president was sworn in minutes later as president. The nation moved on, scarred but stronger from the ordeal.

"State visits are different from a normal visit and at a time when the President of the USA has policies that many in our country disagree with, I am not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet," Khan told CNN in an interview Monday.
Last week, the White House confirmed that Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom has been delayed until 2018.

The delay comes amid concern that there will be mass protests against Trump in the British capital.

Yeah, and began to drop drastically due to the catastrophic job losses as a result of the Great Recession created by the Bush Administration. And By 2013, during the Obama administration, Illegal border crossings dropped to their lowest levels in 40 years. whistle whistle whistle

http://www.cnn.com/2013/02/13/politics/fact-check-immigration/index.html
http://www.pewhispanic.org/2012/04/23/net-migration-from-mexico-falls-to-zero-and-perhaps-less/

"A Pew Research Hispanic Center study finds that Border Patrol apprehensions of all unauthorized immigrants are at their lowest level since 1971. "In spite of (and perhaps because of) increases in the number of U.S. Border Patrol agents (as ordered by Obama), apprehensions of Mexicans trying to cross the border illegally have plummeted in recent years—from more than 1 million in 2005 to 286,000 in 2011—a likely indication that fewer unauthorized migrants are trying to cross," it concluded.

Pew estimates that net migration -- newly arrived immigrants minus those leaving (forced or voluntarily) -- has come to a standstill, which it attributes to the weakened U.S. job and construction markets, border enforcement, an increase in deportations, and increased dangers associated with crossing the border.
In all, there were 327,577 illegal immigrant apprehensions in 2011, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. This is the lowest number since 1972, when there were 321,326. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the 2011 figure is a 53% drop from 2008, which it says indicates that fewer people are trying to cross the border."

Yeah, and began to drop drastically due to the catastrophic job losses as a result of the Great Recession created by the Bush Administration. And By 2013, during the Obama administration, Illegal border crossings dropped to their lowest levels in 40 years. whistle whistle whistle

"A Pew Research Hispanic Center study finds that Border Patrol apprehensions of all unauthorized immigrants are at their lowest level since 1971. "In spite of (and perhaps because of) increases in the number of U.S. Border Patrol agents (as ordered by Obama), apprehensions of Mexicans trying to cross the border illegally have plummeted in recent years—from more than 1 million in 2005 to 286,000 in 2011—a likely indication that fewer unauthorized migrants are trying to cross," it concluded.

Pew estimates that net migration -- newly arrived immigrants minus those leaving (forced or voluntarily) -- has come to a standstill, which it attributes to the weakened U.S. job and construction markets, border enforcement, an increase in deportations, and increased dangers associated with crossing the border.
In all, there were 327,577 illegal immigrant apprehensions in 2011, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. This is the lowest number since 1972, when there were 321,326. According to the Department of Homeland Security, the 2011 figure is a 53% drop from 2008, which it says indicates that fewer people are trying to cross the border."

Head of Border Patrol Union: 'Energy' Among Agents Is Best I've Ever Seen

Morale among U.S. Border Patrol agents is at an all-time high, the president of the National Border Patrol Council said today.

Brandon Judd, the union's president, said agents felt hamstrung for years under the Obama administration's catch-and-release policies at the border.


"Whether you're in the left, right or middle, you have to say this president has done exactly what he's promised to do," said Judd, pointing out the huge drop in apprehensions at the border.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection said this month that apprehensions have fallen to a six-year low, likely due to President Trump's aggressive enforcement and promises to deport those who enter the U.S. illegally.

Judd said there is now a "vibe and an energy" among Border Patrol officers that he has never seen in his 20-year career.

"We signed up to do a job and this president is allowing us to do that job," said Judd, expressing hope that the border wall will be built.

Will Trump's Obsession With Loyalty Bring Him Down?

Covering up for his favorite aides is what sank Richard Nixon. Is Trump making the same mistakes?

By James Robenalt July 19, 2017

Now that Donald Trump Jr.’s emails reveal that the Trump campaign welcomed election interference by the Russians (“I love it,” Junior enthused at the promise of receiving intel on candidate Hillary Clinton from a Kremlin-linked source), it might be a good time to turn the spotlight back to President Donald Trump and whether his actions since becoming president constitute obstruction of justice.

History does not necessarily repeat itself, but sometimes it smells the same. And once again, Watergate provides a useful yardstick for measuring Trump’s Russia-gate. A review of how events unfolded over the two years of disclosures during the Watergate probe suggests a pattern: President Richard Nixon was involved in a cover-up to protect people close to him, not necessarily himself.

It’s very possible that a similar story is unfolding today—that Trump’s undoing isn’t direct involvement in Kremlin-backed election interference, but rather obstrution of justice to protect both his son and his son-in-law for their role in the Russia scandal.

The story of Nixon and Mitchell casts Trump’s actions in connection with the Russian investigation in a new light: The president may not have known directly about details of the proposed Russian interference, but he likely knew that his son and son-in-law met with individuals who had Russian connections, and thus that they would be in jeopardy if the FBI continued to dig. By this logic, it is not hard to conceive that Trump’s string of startling and obstructive decisions—asking FBI Director James Comey to discontinue the Flynn investigation, firing Comey when the Russia investigation seemed to be expanding and asking the country to move on rather than sanctioning Russia—have been to protect his children.

Nixon did not have to lose his presidency over the bungled break-in. But his personal concern for his close friend was probably the main reason he became enmeshed in a career-ending cover-up that he had no rational hope of controlling. Think of how much easier it would be to fall into that trap with the reputations of one’s own children on the line.

In the end though, as Nixon said, the truth has a way of coming out. Now, we simply await the next shoes to drop.

LIVE: Health care protests on Capitol Hill

Demonstrators are protesting the GOP's health care bill on Capitol Hill.

Re: The Trump effect continues! MORE WINNING! - 07/19/17 03:24 PM

Was it just an innocent description of what President Donald Trump said? Or some grade-A trolling?

After the GOP’s latest attempt at repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act failed Tuesday, Fox News aired footage of Trump repeatedly saying he was “disappointed” and vowing that “eventually we’re gonna get something done.”

The conservative network’s graphics team then superimposed a paraphrased version of the quote on the bottom of the screen. It immediately sent people on the internet into overdrive.

Many jokingly suggested it should be the president’s new campaign slogan, while some questioned whether the usually pro-Trump network was starting to turn against the White House.

Trump Eliminates More Than 800 Obama Regulations
16 regs removed for every new rule introduced


BY: Elizabeth Harrington
July 20, 2017 11:27 am

The Trump administration has stopped over 800 regulations proposed under former president Barack Obama, according to a new White House report.

Reuters reported Thursday:

The White House said Thursday it had withdrawn or removed from active consideration more than 800 proposed regulations that were never finalized during the Obama administration as it works to shrink the federal government's regulatory footprint.

And for GOOD Reason.

TRUMP'S LIES:

JAN. 21 “I wasn't a fan of Iraq. I didn't want to go into Iraq.” (He was for an invasion before he was against it.)

JAN. 21 “A reporter for Time magazine — and I have been on their cover 14 or 15 times. I think we have the all-time record in the history of Time magazine.” (Trump was on the cover 11 times and Nixon appeared 55 times.)

JAN. 23 “Between 3 million and 5 million illegal votes caused me to lose the popular vote.” (There's no evidence of illegal voting.)

JAN. 25 “Now, the audience was the biggest ever. But this crowd was massive. Look how far back it goes. This crowd was massive.” (Official aerial photos show Obama's 2009 inauguration was much more heavily attended.)

JAN. 25 “Take a look at the Pew reports (which show voter fraud.)” (The report never mentioned voter fraud.)

JAN. 25 “You had millions of people that now aren't insured anymore.” (The real number is less than 1 million, according to the Urban Institute.)

JAN. 25 “So, look, when President Obama was there two weeks ago making a speech, very nice speech. Two people were shot and killed during his speech. You can't have that.” (There were no gun homicide victims in Chicago that day.)

JAN. 26 “We've taken in tens of thousands of people. We know nothing about them. They can say they vet them. They didn't vet them. They have no papers. How can you vet somebody when you don't know anything about them and you have no papers? How do you vet them? You can't.” (Vetting lasts up to two years.)

JAN. 26 “I cut off hundreds of millions of dollars off one particular plane, hundreds of millions of dollars in a short period of time. It wasn't like I spent, like, weeks, hours, less than hours, and many, many hundreds of millions of dollars. And the plane's going to be better.” (Most of the cuts were already planned.)

JAN. 28 “The coverage about me in the @nytimes and the @washingtonpost has been so false and angry that the Times actually apologized to its dwindling subscribers and readers.” (It never apologized.)

JAN. 29 “The Cuban-Americans, I got 84 percent of that vote.” (There is no support for this.)

JAN. 30 “Only 109 people out of 325,000 were detained and held for questioning. Big problems at airports were caused by Delta computer outage.” (At least 746 people were detained and processed, and the Delta outage happened two days later.)

FEB. 3 “Professional anarchists, thugs and paid protesters are proving the point of the millions of people who voted to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” (There is no evidence of paid protesters.)

FEB. 4 “After being forced to apologize for its bad and inaccurate coverage of me after winning the election, the FAKE NEWS @nytimes is still lost!” (It never apologized.)

FEB. 5 “We had 109 people out of hundreds of thousands of travelers and all we did was vet those people very, very carefully.” (About 60,000 people were affected.)

FEB. 6 “I have already saved more than $700 million when I got involved in the negotiation on the F-35.” (Much of the price drop was projected before Trump took office.)

FEB. 6 “It's gotten to a point where it is not even being reported. And in many cases, the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it.” (Terrorism has been reported on, often in detail.)

FEB. 6 “The failing @nytimes was forced to apologize to its subscribers for the poor reporting it did on my election win. Now they are worse!” (It didn't apologize.)

FEB. 6 “And the previous administration allowed it to happen because we shouldn't have been in Iraq, but we shouldn't have gotten out the way we got out. It created a vacuum, ISIS was formed.” (The group’s origins date to 2004.)

FEB. 7 “And yet the murder rate in our country is the highest it’s been in 47 years, right? Did you know that? Forty-seven years.” (It was higher in the 1980s and '90s.)

FEB. 7 “I saved more than $600 million. I got involved in negotiation on a fighter jet, the F-35.” (The Defense Department projected this price drop before Trump took office.)

FEB. 9 “Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Sen. Blumenthal, never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave ‘service’ in Vietnam. FAKE NEWS!” (It was part of Cuomo's first question.)

FEB. 9 “Sen. Richard Blumenthal now misrepresents what Judge Gorsuch told him?” (The Gorsuch comments were later corroborated.)

FEB. 10 “I don’t know about it. I haven’t seen it. What report is that?” (Trump knew about Flynn's actions for weeks.)

FEB. 12 “Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention. Very dishonest!” (The media did cover it.)

FEB. 16 “We got 306 because people came out and voted like they've never seen before so that's the way it goes. I guess it was the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan.” (George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama all won bigger margins in the Electoral College.)

FEB. 16 “That’s the other thing that was wrong with the travel ban. You had Delta with a massive problem with their computer system at the airports.” (Delta's problems happened two days later.)

FEB. 16 “Walmart announced it will create 10,000 jobs in the United States just this year because of our various plans and initiatives.” (The jobs are a result of its investment plans announced in October 2016.)

FEB. 16 “When WikiLeaks, which I had nothing to do with, comes out and happens to give, they’re not giving classified information.” (Not always. They have released classified information in the past.)

FEB. 16 “We had a very smooth rollout of the travel ban. But we had a bad court. Got a bad decision.” (The rollout was chaotic.)

FEB. 16 “They’re giving stuff — what was said at an office about Hillary cheating on the debates. Which, by the way, nobody mentions. Nobody mentions that Hillary received the questions to the debates.” (It was widely covered.)

FEB. 18 “And there was no way to vet those people. There was no documentation. There was no nothing.” (Refugees receive multiple background checks, taking up to two years.)

FEB. 18 “You look at what's happening in Germany, you look at what's happening last night in Sweden. Sweden, who would believe this?” (Trump implied there was a terror attack in Sweden, but there was no such attack.)

FEB. 24 “By the way, you folks are in here — this place is packed, there are lines that go back six blocks.” (There was no evidence of long lines.)

FEB. 24 “ICE came and endorsed me.” (Only its union did.)

FEB. 24 “Obamacare covers very few people — and remember, deduct from the number all of the people that had great health care that they loved that was taken away from them — it was taken away from them.” (Obamacare increased coverage by a net of about 20 million.)

FEB. 27 “Since Obamacare went into effect, nearly half of the insurers are stopped and have stopped from participating in the Obamacare exchanges.” (Many fewer pulled out.)

FEB. 27 “On one plane, on a small order of one plane, I saved $725 million. And I would say I devoted about, if I added it up, all those calls, probably about an hour. So I think that might be my highest and best use.” (Much of the price cut was already projected.)

FEB. 28 “And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that.” (NATO countries agreed to meet defense spending requirements in 2014.)

FEB. 28 “The E.P.A.’s regulators were putting people out of jobs by the hundreds of thousands.” (There's no evidence that the Waters of the United States rule caused severe job losses.)

FEB. 28 “We have begun to drain the swamp of government corruption by imposing a five-year ban on lobbying by executive branch officials.” (They can't lobby their former agency but can still become lobbyists.)

MARCH 3 “It is so pathetic that the Dems have still not approved my full Cabinet.” (Paperwork for the last two candidates was still not submitted to the Senate.)

MARCH 4 “Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my ‘wires tapped’ in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!” (There's no evidence of a wiretap.)

MARCH 4 “How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!” (There's no evidence of a wiretap.)

MARCH 7 “122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!” (113 of them were released by President George W. Bush.)

MARCH 13 “I saved a lot of money on those jets, didn't I? Did I do a good job? More than $725 million on them.” (Much of the cost cuts were planned before Trump.)

MARCH 13 “First of all, it covers very few people.” (About 20 million people gained insurance under Obamacare.)

MARCH 15 “On the airplanes, I saved $725 million. Probably took me a half an hour if you added up all of the times.” (Much of the cost cuts were planned before Trump.)

MARCH 17 “I was in Tennessee — I was just telling the folks — and half of the state has no insurance company, and the other half is going to lose the insurance company.” (There's at least one insurer in every Tennessee county.)

MARCH 20 “With just one negotiation on one set of airplanes, I saved the taxpayers of our country over $700 million.” (Much of the cost cuts were planned before Trump.)

MARCH 21 “To save taxpayer dollars, I’ve already begun negotiating better contracts for the federal government — saving over $700 million on just one set of airplanes of which there are many sets.” (Much of the cost cuts were planned before Trump.)

MARCH 22 “I make the statement, everyone goes crazy. The next day they have a massive riot, and death, and problems.” (Riots in Sweden broke out two days later and there were no deaths.)

MARCH 22 “NATO, obsolete, because it doesn’t cover terrorism. They fixed that.” (It has fought terrorism since the 1980s.)

MARCH 22 “Well, now, if you take a look at the votes, when I say that, I mean mostly they register wrong — in other words, for the votes, they register incorrectly and/or illegally. And they then vote. You have tremendous numbers of people.” (There's no evidence of widespread voter fraud.)

MARCH 29 “Remember when the failing @nytimes apologized to its subscribers, right after the election, because their coverage was so wrong. Now worse!” (It didn't apologize.)

MARCH 31 “We have a lot of plants going up now in Michigan that were never going to be there if I — if I didn’t win this election, those plants would never even think about going back. They were gone.” (These investments were already planned.)

APRIL 2 “And I was totally opposed to the war in the Middle East which I think finally has been proven, people tried very hard to say I wasn’t but you’ve seen that it is now improving.” (He was for an invasion before he was against it.)

APRIL 2 “Now, my last tweet — you know, the one that you are talking about, perhaps — was the one about being, in quotes, wiretapped, meaning surveilled. Guess what, it is turning out to be true.” (There is still no evidence.)

APRIL 5 “You have many states coming up where they’re going to have no insurance company. O.K.? It’s already happened in Tennessee. It’s happening in Kentucky. Tennessee only has half coverage. Half the state is gone. They left.” (Every marketplace region in Tennessee had at least one insurer.)

APRIL 6 “If you look at the kind of cost-cutting we’ve been able to achieve with the military and at the same time ordering vast amounts of equipment — saved hundreds of millions of dollars on airplanes, and really billions, because if you take that out over a period of years it’s many billions of dollars — I think we’ve had a tremendous success.” (Much of the price cuts were already projected.)

APRIL 11 “I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late. I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn’t know Steve.” (He knew Steve Bannon since 2011.)

APRIL 12 “You can't do it faster, because they're obstructing. They're obstructionists. So I have people — hundreds of people that we're trying to get through. I mean you have — you see the backlog. We can't get them through.” (At this point, he had not nominated anyone for hundreds of positions.)

APRIL 12 “The New York Times said the word wiretapped in the headline of the first edition. Then they took it out of there fast when they realized.” (There were separate headlines for print and web, but neither were altered.)

APRIL 12 “The secretary general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism.” (NATO has been engaged in counterterrorism efforts since the 1980s.)

APRIL 12 “Mosul was supposed to last for a week and now they’ve been fighting it for many months and so many more people died.” (The campaign was expected to take months.)

APRIL 16 “Someone should look into who paid for the small organized rallies yesterday. The election is over!” (There's no evidence of paid protesters.)

APRIL 18 “The fake media goes, ‘Donald Trump changed his stance on China.’ I haven’t changed my stance.” (He did.)

APRIL 21 “On 90 planes I saved $725 million. It's actually a little bit more than that, but it's $725 million.” (Much of the price cuts were already projected.)

APRIL 21 “When WikiLeaks came out ... never heard of WikiLeaks, never heard of it.” (He criticized it as early as 2010.)

APRIL 27 “I want to help our miners while the Democrats are blocking their healthcare.” (The bill to extend health benefits for certain coal miners was introduced by a Democrat and was co-sponsored by mostly Democrats.)

APRIL 28 “The trade deficit with Mexico is close to $70 billion, even with Canada it’s $17 billion trade deficit with Canada.” (The U.S. had an $8.1 billion trade surplus, not deficit, with Canada in 2016.)

APRIL 28 “She's running against someone who's going to raise your taxes to the sky, destroy your health care, and he's for open borders — lots of crime.” (Those are not Jon Ossoff's positions.)

APRIL 28 “The F-35 fighter jet program — it was way over budget. I’ve saved $725 million plus, just by getting involved in the negotiation.” (Much of the price cuts were planned before Trump.)

APRIL 29 “As you know, I've been a big critic of China, and I've been talking about currency manipulation for a long time. But I have to tell you that during the election, number one, they stopped.” (China stopped years ago.)

APRIL 29 “I've already saved more than $725 million on a simple order of F-35 planes. I got involved in the negotiation.” (Much of the price cuts were planned before Trump.)

APRIL 29 “We're also getting NATO countries to finally step up and contribute their fair share. They've begun to increase their contributions by billions of dollars, but we are not going to be satisfied until everyone pays what they owe.” (The deal was struck in 2014.)

APRIL 29 “When they talk about currency manipulation, and I did say I would call China, if they were, a currency manipulator, early in my tenure. And then I get there. Number one, they — as soon as I got elected, they stopped.” (China stopped in 2014.)

APRIL 29 “I was negotiating to reduce the price of the big fighter jet contract, the F-35, which was totally out of control. I will save billions and billions and billions of dollars.” (Most of the cuts were planned before Trump.)

APRIL 29 “I think our side's been proven very strongly. And everybody's talking about it.” (There's still no evidence Trump's phones were tapped.)

MAY 1 “Well, we are protecting pre-existing conditions. And it'll be every good — bit as good on pre-existing conditions as Obamacare.” (The bill weakens protections for people with pre-existing conditions.)

MAY 1 “The F-35 fighter jet — I saved — I got involved in the negotiation. It's 2,500 jets. I negotiated for 90 planes, lot 10. I got $725 million off the price.” (Much of the price cuts were planned before Trump.)

MAY 1 “First of all, since I started running, they haven't increased their — you know, they have not manipulated their currency. I think that was out of respect to me and the campaign.” (China stopped years ago.)

MAY 2 “I love buying those planes at a reduced price. I have been really — I have cut billions — I have to tell you this, and they can check, right, Martha? I have cut billions and billions of dollars off plane contracts sitting here.” (Much of the cost cuts were planned before Trump.)

MAY 4 “Number two, they’re actually not a currency [manipulator]. You know, since I’ve been talking about currency manipulation with respect to them and other countries, they stopped.” (China stopped years ago.)

MAY 4 “We’re the highest-taxed nation in the world.” (We're not.)

MAY 4 “Nobody cares about my tax return except for the reporters.” (Polls show most Americans do care.)

MAY 8 “You know we’ve gotten billions of dollars more in NATO than we’re getting. All because of me.” (The deal was struck in 2014.)

MAY 8 “But when I did his show, which by the way was very highly rated. It was high — highest rating. The highest rating he’s ever had.” (Colbert's Late Show debut had nearly two million more viewers.)

MAY 8 “Director Clapper reiterated what everybody, including the fake media already knows — there is ‘no evidence’ of collusion w/ Russia and Trump.” (Clapper only said he wasn't aware of an investigation.)

MAY 12 “Again, the story that there was collusion between the Russians & Trump campaign was fabricated by Dems as an excuse for losing the election.” (The F.B.I. was investigating before the election.)

MAY 12 “When James Clapper himself, and virtually everyone else with knowledge of the witch hunt, says there is no collusion, when does it end?” (Clapper said he wouldn't have been told of an investigation into collusion.)

MAY 13 “I'm cutting the price of airplanes with Lockheed.” (The cost cuts were planned before he became president.)

MAY 26 “Just arrived in Italy for the G7. Trip has been very successful. We made and saved the USA many billions of dollars and millions of jobs.” (He's referencing an arms deal that's not enacted and other apparent deals that weren't announced on the trip.)

JUNE 1 “China will be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants. So, we can’t build the plants, but they can, according to this agreement. India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020.” (The agreement doesn’t allow or disallow building coal plants.)

JUNE 1 “I’ve just returned from a trip overseas where we concluded nearly $350 billion of military and economic development for the United States, creating hundreds of thousands of jobs.” (Trump’s figures are inflated and premature.)

JUNE 4 “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’” (The mayor was specifically talking about the enlarged police presence on the streets.)

JUNE 5 “The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.” (Trump signed this ve
