'Unhinged & Dangerous': The Old Trump is Back. In Fact, He Never Left

Robert Reich Blog
March 06, 2017

It seems an eternity ago but it was only last Tuesday night when Donald Trump addressed a joint session of Congress and stuck to the teleprompter without going off the deep end – eliciting rapturous praise from the media.

“Donald Trump at his most presidential,“gushed NBC; “a recitation of hopes and dreams for the nation,” oozed NPR; “the most presidential speech Mr. Trump has ever given — delivered at precisely the moment he needed to project sobriety, seriousness of purpose and self-discipline,” raved the New York Times; “he did something tonight that you cannot take away from him. He became president of the United States,” rhapsodized CNN’s Van Jones.

The bar was so low that all Trump needed to do was not sound nuts and he was “presidential.”

But that all ended Saturday morning when the old Trump – the “birther,” the hatemonger, the thin-skinned paranoid, the liar, the reckless ranter, the vindictive narcissist, the whack-o conman – reemerged in a series of unprecedented and unverified accusations about his predecessor.

In truth, the old Trump was there all along, and he will always be there. He’s unhinged and dangerous. The sooner congressional Republicans accept this, and take action to remove him – whether through impeachment or the 25th Amendment – the better for all of us.

There is no longer any doubt in my mind that the man holding the most powerful position in the world is mentally unstable. It is hard to think of anything more dangerous that this situation the whole world is in now.

After federal judges struck down the ban, the administration went back to the drawing board. A new order signed Monday with little fanfare ― no cameras were even present ― is a backdown of monumental proportions: The only travelers banned are those without visas from six nations ― Iraq was scratched from the list. And with or without this order, those without visas were already barred from traveling to the U.S.

The new order represents a major political defeat for the Trump administration, which decided to shove aside the dozens of lawsuits that were filed after the first order was signed and just sign a new order. Top Trump officials significantly watered down their language this time around. Gone were the overt mentions of “extreme vetting” and rooting out “radical Islamic terrorism.”

There are now four grounds to impeach Donald Trump and a fifth is "on its way", according to former Labour Secretary Robert Reich.

Top 10 Best Cabinet Members

As the President-elect and his transition team think about whom to tap for top jobs in the Obama Administration, TIME looks back on a group of 20th-century Cabinet members who distinguished their offices

A former Rhodes Scholar, Reich served as the 22nd Labor Secretary under President Bill Clinton. Among his accomplishments were helping to implement the Family and Medical Leave Act, raising the minimum wage and leading a crackdown on sweatshops. He currently serves as an adviser to President-elect Barack Obama and is a professor at the University of California, Berkeley.

WOW! BARACK’S BROTHER MALIK OBAMA Just Tweeted Obama’s Birth Certificate…And It’s Not From Hawaii
By 100% FED Up -
Mar 9, 2017




Obama’s half-brother Malik just tweeted an image of Barack Obama’s birth certificate from a hospital in Mombassa, Kenya. The birth certificate shows he was born in Kenya on August 4, 1961.

Malik made no secret of his support for Donald Trump during the campaign. In July 2016, Malik Obama proudly announced his support for Donald Trump, saying that he wanted to make America great again so he was voting for Trump.

Hear the latest? Trump is beating his chest because the new unemployment rate is at 4.7%, now isn't the same idiot who has criticize the numbers as being highly under reported and said more than likely that the rates are more likely 40%? crazy
Obama creates the beach while Donald drops a cup full of sand on it and takes credit for it's invention.

Trump is disgusting beyond words. It is obvious the Russians are blackmailing him big time.

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

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/...ptoms/97437612/

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who spoke out this week against dissidents and journalists targeted for murder in Russia, said it appears Kara-Murza was again singled out for his political and opposition activity.

"(Russian President) Vladimir Putin does not deserve any benefit of the doubt here, given how commonplace political assassinations and poisonings have become under his regime," said Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations committee.

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

http://www.bbc.com/news/election-us-2016-37303057

Quizzed by NBC host Matt Lauer on his previous complimentary remarks about Mr Putin, Mr Trump responded: "He does have an 82% approval rating."

"I think when he calls me brilliant I'll take the compliment, ok?" added the businessman.

He said Mr Putin had "great control over his country".

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

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/ba...f-any-president

Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey said in an interview Monday that President Donald Trump's comments about Russian President Vladimir Putin might be "the most anti-American statement" ever made by a U.S. president.

From Fox News! Most polls have shown Tump's base still supports him. I would think that has to start shrinking as more and more bad news comes out about his administration.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/03/...-improving.html

Approval of Trump’s overall job performance is down five percentage points. Currently, 43 percent of voters approve, while 51 percent disapprove. In February it was 48-47 percent.

For comparison, at a similar point in President Obama’s first term, 63 percent approved of his job performance and a 64 percent majority had confidence he would bring positive change (February/March 2009). A notable difference is that only a third as many Democrats (10 percent) have confidence in Trump now as Republicans had in Obama then (31 percent).

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,008 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from March 12-14, 2017. The poll has a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points for all registered voters.

Amazingly dysfunctional. Kyles, based on human mentality, it's a waste of time to attempt to change one's mindset or opinion (That's what Conservative tell Liberals) The easy stance would be to let time take it's course but smart individuals understand the concept of "time is of the essence" and how a look back to 2000 when a previous Republican President methodically & systematically destroyed an economy, people's lives due to one simple mindset, take monies and benefits from the poor and hand it over the the rich and wasteful entities. Trickle down turned to very rich and greedy corporation heads closing down factories and sending them overseas, which took away jobs,livelihoods and health coverage. The military is tickled pink as of today, they can now trade in their $600.00 toilet seats for the new and improved $1000.00 set at the expense to a nation that ranks globally in 50th place in healthcare while our children can no longer compete academically in the world.....note the declining number of Americans in the field of mathematics, science and technology. Kyles, once again, you've stated it accurately while reiterating the fact that a fool is define by repeating the same identical mistakes while looking for positive results.

Every now and then I have a little hope America will survive.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/number-people-regret-voting-trump-164011003.html

A new national poll released this week shows that Trump supporters increasingly feel that he's "going too far," is falling short of their expectations of him for unifying the country, and is "getting sidetracked by things that aren't important." All of which amounts to an uptick in "Trump Regretters" (i.e. people who voted for him but no longer support him) since November.

But a majority of Trump supporters still feel the President is "keeping his promises" and "getting things done."

Last month, half of Trump voters felt he was "surrounding himself with the best people." This week, 39 percent do.

But Trump-who last month tweeted "Any negative polls are fake news"-may have cause for concern if support among his base continues to fall, said Margie Omero, executive vice president for public affairs at PSB Research, who spearheaded the poll.

"He has no crossover appeal," Omero told MarieClaire.com, citing other polling outlets that have found Trump to be strong with his supporters, but dangerously weak with Democrats and independents. "So if he starts to slip with his base-as he has in our poll-where does he have room to grow?"

"He has to hold onto his base going into the midterms," she added. "If this slide continues, he is going to have some serious trouble."

Can you believe this from the Wall Street Journal no less? OMG

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/22/politics/donald-trump-wsj-trust/

"He has offered no evidence for his claim, and a parade of intelligence officials, senior Republicans and Democrats have since said they have seen no such evidence," the editorial board wrote. "Yet the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims."

Mr. Moss was from Ithaca. I saw him on CNN yesterday.

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.

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.

I call upon Trump to support these protestors in their rallies against their dictator leader Putin. Is Trump a loyal American or Putin's lapdog? Sadly we know that answer, don't we?

http://www.latimes.com/world/europe/la-fg-russia-protests-20170326-story.html

Tens of thousands of people rallied, and hundreds were detained Sunday in Russian cities during massive, mostly unsanctioned rallies organized by anti-corruption whistleblower and opposition leader Alexei Navalny.

The demonstrations were the largest in Russia in years and came three weeks after Navalny’s Fund to Fight Corruption released a YouTube documentary, now viewed 11 million times, detailing Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s purported involvement in massive corruption schemes.

Navalny had used a social media campaign to spread awareness of the demonstrations, during which protesters demanded the resignation of Medvedev, who once enjoyed a reputation as a moderate pro-Western and technocratic counterpart to President Vladimir Putin.

The documentary said the prime minister is now the billionaire owner of vast business holdings and a palatial complex larger than the Vatican.
