'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.

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/sasse-russia-protests-trump-putin-236524

Sen. Ben Sasse called out the White House on Sunday for not commenting on the suppression of Russian protesters.

The Nebraska Republican, who is a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released a statement Sunday saying Russian President Vladimir Putin's "thugocracy is on full display" and that U.S. leaders are expected to call out those who "trample the basic human rights."

"The United States government cannot be silent about Russia’s crackdown on peaceful protesters. Free speech is what we’re all about, and Americans expect our leaders to call out thugs who trample the basic human rights of speech, press, assembly, and protest," Sasse said in the statement.

Opposition rallies against the Russian government took place on Sunday in more than 80 towns and cities across Russia. In Moscow, reports indicate more than 650 people have been detained, including Alexei Navalny, Putin's most-prominent critic in Russia. The protests spurred from allegations that Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev accepted more than $1 billion in bribes from state banks and wealthy businessmen.

President Donald Trump has come under criticism for his kind gestures toward Putin. The FBI also is investigating potential connections between Trump campaign aides and the Russian government, which US intelligence officials suspect tried to interfere in the 2016 elections to help Trump win.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/26/opinions/trump-lame-duck-obeidallah-opinion/index.html

Donald Trump may just have achieved another first -- but this isn't one he will like. He may be on the verge of becoming the first president to be considered a "lame duck" within the first two months of his presidency.

If you define a "lame duck" president as someone who lacks the political capital to turn his ideas into policy, you might want to stick a fork in Trump because he's done -- at least for now.

Technically, Trump could turn things around, but I doubt he will. Why? Simple. Trump told Time magazine this week that he has no plans to change, boasting that he follows his instincts and they are usually right. Trump then added in typical Trump fashion, "I guess I can't be doing so badly, because I'm President, and you're not."

Trump is correct, he is the President. But here's what Trump left out: He's a rare, orange-feathered lame duck President whose most significant achievement may turn out to be his unintentional rebuilding of the Democratic Party.

ROFLMAO

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/03/nancy-pelosi-trump-obamacare-236521

Nancy Pelosi is suddenly relevant again.

The implosion of the all-Republican effort to lay waste to Obamacare showed that President Donald Trump might need the San Francisco Democrat to salvage the rest of his agenda. The self-professed master negotiator couldn’t get it done with his own party, despite a 44-seat House majority, and hinted afterward he might start to look across the aisle.

The next big showdown in Congress comes at the end of April, when government funding runs out. Pelosi has already made clear her caucus won’t support any spending bill that provides money for Trump’s proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Very well put, as I sit here listening to Rep. Charlie Dent hypocritically speak of bipartisan support, where was that support on January 20, 2009 when Obama took office? Moving forward from the back office deal to make Obama a one term President, their agenda has been anything to hurt the Dems. Had the Republican been successful in their healthcare endeavor, they would have pushed on with the norm, attempting to disregard the Liberals at every chance the opportunity presents itself.

Pelosi is definitely unhinged and dangerous, as well as a hypocrite.
To be expected by a far left winger.


FLASHBACK: That Time All Of America’s Top Dems Voted To Fund Bush’s Border Wall


Democrats are already grumbling about Donald Trump’s proposed border wall, though Barack Obama and other leaders in their party voted not so long ago for George W. Bush’s proposal to build a major wall on the border with Mexico.

Bush signed the proposal into law in 2006, after it was passed by huge bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate. The law ordered the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to construct about 700 miles of fencing along the southern border, and authorized the addition of lights and cameras and sensors to enhance security. The law explicitly required the wall to be constructed of “at least two layers of reinforced fencing.”

Two-thirds of the Republican-led House approved the bill, including 64 Democrats, and 80 of 100 senators approved the bill in the Senate. Then Sens. Barack Obama, Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton were among the 26 Democrats who approved the bill. Supporters also included Sen. Chuck Schumer, who is set to take over leadership of the Senate for Democrats in 2016.

Other Democrats in the Senate who voted for the wall in 2006 are Sens. Barbara Boxer (CA), Sherrod Brown (OH — then in the House), Tom Carper (DE), Dianne Feinstein (CA), Barbara Mikulski (MD), Bill Nelson (FL), Debbie Stabenow (MI), and Ron Wyden (OR).



There are also a number of Democrat representatives still in the House who voted for the bill: Sanford Bishop (GA), Corrine Brown (FL), Michael Capuano (MA), Jim Cooper (TN), Jim Costa (CA), Peter DeFazio (OR), Steve Israel (NY), Ron Kind (WI), Daniel Lipinski (IL), Stephen Lynch (MA), Carolyn Maloney (NY), Bill Pascrell Jr. (NJ), Collin Peterson (MN), C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (MD), Tim Ryan (OH), and Adam Smith (WA).

Former Democrat Rep. Barney Frank and now-disgraced former Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner also voted for the bill.

Bush signed the bill into law Oct. 26, 2006. “This bill will help protect the American people,” he said. “This bill will make our borders more secure.”

But nearly a decade later, DHS has built only 35.6 miles of the double-layered fencing. That’s because a Democrat-controlled Congress later amended the law to allow DHS officials to build whatever sort of barrier they deemed appropriate.

A clear and present danger coming from every segment of the Republican's venues but a sad commentary that Monday morning quarterbacking is deflection from one's own debacles.

Care to recap the mistakes and missteps of the GOP that have nothing whatsoever to do with the Democrats? Didn't think so

NOT!!!!!!

Seven whole years of listening the GOP criticism & disparaging remarks, we now observe an embarrassed party attempting to move on to the next debacle they'll create but for the time being, let the Liberals at least relish in the fact that they've always known the Republicans to be the party of NO

NO plans
NO action
No willingness to make concessions whatsoever.
NO ability to govern externally or internally among themselves.

I think that we'll see more stumbles from the Republicans before it gets any better for them. First of all, an election putting Trump into the White House has proven to be a farce due to ever revealing findings of debauchery in the electoral while a 3 million vote edge over Trump by Hillary states the obvious, there's no Conservative mandate to claim but consistent false claims that the "people" have spoken, now the the proverbial question, who are the people they (GOP) speak of? surely not the ones who came out by the millions in protest of Trump in January, those who tell the Republicans to go home at the Town hall meetings and this 5 to 1 consensus to keep Obamacare.

Nothing more pleasurable then watching a sweating, nervous Conservative pretending that they have a winning agenda but as you turn your head to observe all the train wrecks and missteps they've made, you know for a fact that your logic is pure and correct. Note a certain forum Conservative posting down in the entertainment thread, he's become the poster boy in which the party prides itself.....need we ask why the party is doing so well? whistle

I am thoroughly enjoying letting the liberal snowflakes relish in the fact that Trump is the POTUS. The party of NO...NO Hillary. NO more Obama agenda. NO more majority in the house. NO more majority in the senate.

Resist: Post-Trump Victory, Dems Finally Flip a State Legislature Seat...to Republicans
Guy Benson

If you're unfamiliar with the partisan landscape of state legislatures across the country in recent years, here's a quick primer: With precious few, deep blue exceptions, Republicans have dominated. During the Obama era, the GOP gained hundreds upon hundreds of seats in state-level governing bodies; they currently control 68 of 99 chambers nationwide. The popular backlash to Obamaism was swift, deep, and now complete: The Republican Party now rules DC, too -- even if they seem incapable of taking advantage of this rare opportunity at unified governance.

But now that Trump is president, the roles could well reverse. Much like the GOP in 2009, Democrats find themselves staggering about in the wilderness; leaderless, and with a base fanatically committed to maximum "resistance" against the new administration. They've aired their intense opposition through the (largely sympathetic, if not outright allied) mainstream media, staged mass demonstrations, and leveraged every social media platform under the sun to fight Trump and the Republicans. The political momentum, and the gravitational pull toward an ideological pendulum swing, appears to be on the Left's side. And yet, here's what we relayed a few weeks ago regarding some early electoral outcomes that have occurred since Trump's November victory:

The Democrat resistance may be generating a lot of noise in Washington, D.C., but so far in 2017, it has shown little impact on elections in the states. Even with hefty financial investments and high profile Democrats lending star power to state-level candidates, Republicans won control of every district they previously held across multiple states that Democrats have won in the last three or more presidential elections, including as recently as yesterday in Connecticut.
Democrats sought to flip partisan control of four Republican-held seats in a quartet of blue state legislatures -- with liberal advocates showering national attention and money upon several of the races. The result? Zero pick-ups. In spite of major intensity and financial gaps fueled by The Resistance, the GOP held serve in all four contests. But now there's an update to this story. A seat in Louisiana has finally flipped. From blue to red. Via the Republican State Leadership Committee:

For months, Democrats have bragged about state-level, special election strength and victories, while conveniently glossing over one very important detail: they weren’t actually winning any new seats. But on Saturday, the seat count finally changed… and not in their direction. Republican John Stefanski this weekend flipped Louisiana House District 42 – a seat held by Democrats since at least 1972 – after Democrats failed to even file a candidate in the race. Additionally, Republicans retained House District 92 on Saturday with a win by Joe Stagni. So for those of you keeping score, Democrats in state legislatures – despite massive interest and spending – have still flipped zero seats and hold even less than they did at the beginning of 2017. So much for refocused and rebuilding. ICYMI earlier this month, RSLC Political Director Justin Richards released a 2017 special elections update memo noting that despite major investments and major party surrogates’ engagement, Democrats hadn’t actually netted any new seats in state legislative chambers.

The RSLC surveys the state of play since Trump's resistance-sparking win last fall:

- Republicans in January retained a seat in the Virginia House and Virginia Senate by very comfortable margins, despite big investments by Democrats led by Governor Terry McAuliffe.

- Republicans in February retained a Minnesota House seat which gave them their largest House majority ever post-presidential election, despite major Democrat Party surrogates campaigning for their candidate.

- Also in February, Republicans by 12 points retained a critical Senate seat in Connecticut to maintain a chamber tie first secured on Election Day 2016, despite Democrats investing heavily to flip the seat and win back an outright majority.
Now add a red state GOP gain to the roster, following a race in which Democrats couldn't even get a candidate on the ballot to replace their outgoing member. As I emphasized in my previous post, this is not cause for conservatives to adopt a posture of smugness or complacency. Yes, regaining the US Senate is going to be a very tough task for Democrats due to the nature of the 2018 map, but they will have a great many opportunities to make other significant gains at the state legislative, gubernatorial and federal level next year. Keep an eye on this upcoming special Congressional election in Georgia in a Trump-wary district, too. Overall, Republicans have won so much lately that it will be a target-rich environment for the 'out' party. And if President Trump's job approval rating is still suffering by next fall (absent mitigating factors), GOP losses could be substantial. But these very early campaign results prove is that the Democratic/media narrative about a resurgent Left is at least premature, given the choices voters have made in five states.

--------------------------------------------------------------

And the Dems are still losing.

Ted Kennedy colluded with Russia to take down Reagan.

Ted Kennedy's Soviet Gambit
Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.

“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.”

Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Kennedy made Andropov a couple of specific offers.

First he offered to visit Moscow. “The main purpose of the meeting, according to the senator, would be to arm Soviet officials with explanations regarding problems of nuclear disarmament so they may be better prepared and more convincing during appearances in the USA.” Kennedy would help the Soviets deal with Reagan by telling them how to brush up their propaganda.

Then he offered to make it possible for Andropov to sit down for a few interviews on American television. “A direct appeal … to the American people will, without a doubt, attract a great deal of attention and interest in the country. … If the proposal is recognized as worthy, then Kennedy and his friends will bring about suitable steps to have representatives of the largest television companies in the USA contact Y.V. Andropov for an invitation to Moscow for the interviews. … The senator underlined the importance that this initiative should be seen as coming from the American side.”

Kennedy would make certain the networks gave Andropov air time–and that they rigged the arrangement to look like honest journalism.

Kennedy’s motives? “Like other rational people,” the memorandum explained, “[Kennedy] is very troubled by the current state of Soviet-American relations.” But that high-minded concern represented only one of Kennedy’s motives.

“Tunney remarked that the senator wants to run for president in 1988,” the memorandum continued. “Kennedy does not discount that during the 1984 campaign, the Democratic Party may officially turn to him to lead the fight against the Republicans and elect their candidate president.”

Kennedy proved eager to deal with Andropov–the leader of the Soviet Union, a former director of the KGB and a principal mover in both the crushing of the 1956 Hungarian Revolution and the suppression of the 1968 Prague Spring–at least in part to advance his own political prospects.

In 1992, Tim Sebastian published a story about the memorandum in the London Times. Here in the U.S., Sebastian’s story received no attention. In his 2006 book, The Crusader: Ronald Reagan and the Fall of Communism, historian Paul Kengor reprinted the memorandum in full. “The media,” Kengor says, “ignored the revelation.”

“The document,” Kengor continues, “has stood the test of time. I scrutinized it more carefully than anything I’ve ever dealt with as a scholar. I showed the document to numerous authorities who deal with Soviet archival material. No one has debunked the memorandum or shown it to be a forgery. Kennedy’s office did not deny it.”

Why bring all this up now? No evidence exists that Andropov ever acted on the memorandum–within eight months, the Soviet leader would be dead–and now that Kennedy himself has died even many of the former senator’s opponents find themselves grieving. Yet precisely because Kennedy represented such a commanding figure–perhaps the most compelling liberal of our day–we need to consider his record in full.

Doing so, it turns out, requires pondering a document in the archives of the politburo.

When President Reagan chose to confront the Soviet Union, calling it the evil empire that it was, Sen. Edward Kennedy chose to offer aid and comfort to General Secretary Andropov. On the Cold War, the greatest issue of his lifetime, Kennedy got it wrong.

Peter Robinson, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University and a former White House speechwriter, writes a weekly column for Forbes.

-----------------------------------------
Remember Obama telling Russia - just wait till after the election I'll have more flexibility.

Funny how Kennedy nor Obama were arrested for treason. Funny also that Russia's attempts to influence our elections have always been in favor of Dems, and most likely was this time too.

But now it's suddenly a problem. The hypocritical left.

To expand his real estate developments over the years, Donald Trump, his company and partners repeatedly turned to wealthy Russians and oligarchs from former Soviet republics — several allegedly connected to organized crime, according to a USA TODAY review of court cases, government and legal documents and an interview with a former federal prosecutor.

The president and his companies have been linked to at least 10 wealthy former Soviet businessmen with alleged ties to criminal organizations or money laundering.

Good reading, mark this day when it can be stated that a racist crook (Donald Trump) will leave the White House, not in shame because nothing shames this idiot but he will blame everyone else from the train wrecks he caused, go back to his business that he never left in the first place (Trump sheeple ignorantly believes that he follows very law to the letter)and handed the empire over to his kids. whistle

I love the fact that you only reiterate the fact that Trump is a liar when he states that he bring all these companies back to the states, he can start with a gesture of good faith by bringing his own foreign factories and corporation back so his $1.00 made ties and shirts would double in price here due to a set minimum wage.

REPORT: JOHN PODESTA RECEIVED $35 MILLION FROM RUSSIA, HAS STOCK IN RUSSIAN COMPANY

In 2011, John Podesta joins the board of this very small energy company called Joule Energy based out of Massachusetts. About two months after he joins the board of a Russian entity called Rusnano, puts a billion rubles which is about 35-million-dollars into John Podesta’s company.

Now, what is Rusnano? It’s not a private company. It is directly funded by the Kremlin. In fact, the Russian science minister called Rusnano Putin’s child.

So, you have the Russian government investing in one John Podesta’s business in 2011, while he is an advisor to Hillary Clinton at the State Department.

You can be rest assured that Trump's problems are monumental to say the least, poor supporters are sweaty, nervous and anticipating a major upheaval to the Trump regime but you can continue the distractions, the Feds are closing in, while innocent people have nothing to hide and keep their mouths shut ,crooks look for plausible alibies attempting to justify their crimes.

Exactly where to build the wall is something I had not thought about. Does the Trump administration really think Mexico would let us build it on their land? What are they drinking?

http://www.salon.com/2017/03/29/interior...the-rio-grande/

There is virtually no chance that President Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border will be paid for by Mexico — despite his repeated campaign pledges — and now the White House is signaling that the massive construction project may not even take place inside U.S. territory.

Trump’s Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke made the media rounds this week to sell the president’s efforts to roll back environmental protections. The former Montana congressman promised a “very pro-Western” administration that plans to relax protections for threatened jaguars, which live in northern Mexico and parts of the U.S. Southwest, in order to build Trump’s border wall.

But Zinke, as admitted to energy and environmental outlet E&E News, Trump’s wall may even have to be built on Mexican territory, not American territory, in accordance with the terrain along the border.

“The border is complicated, as far as building a physical wall,” Zinke told E&E News’ Corbin Hiar. “The Rio Grande, what side of the river are you going to put the wall? We’re not going to put it on our side and cede the river to Mexico. And we’re probably not going to put it in the middle of the river.”

According to international treaties signed between the U.S. and Mexico, the 1,200-mile long Rio Grande is the official border between the two countries.

Today is Trump's 71st day in office and the disturbing fact is he has cause more damage in this short period than Bill Clinton, GW Bush and Barack Obama put together, with one exception, Bush sent 6000 military personnel to their death.

I see this morning that his approval rating dropped to another record low of 35%

HOW TO BE BILLIONAIRE - NOT.

http://money.cnn.com/2017/03/31/news/trump-university-settlement/index.html?adkey=bn

Thousands of former Trump University students will get most of their money back, with a judge on Friday approving a $25 million settlement.

"The settlement is fair, adequate, and reasonable," Judge Gonzalo Curiel said in his decision.

Nearly 4,000 former students submitted claims and those who are eligible could get back about 90% of their money.

The settlement was agreed to last November, just 10 days after Donald Trump won the presidential election, but still needed court approval.

Trump University was created in 2005, and promised to teach students investing techniques they could use to get rich in real estate -- just like Trump.

A "one-year apprenticeship" at Trump University cost $1,495, according to court documents, while a "membership" cost at least $10,000 and the "Gold Elite," the seminar's most expensive class, cost $35,000.

Trump University effectively closed in 2010, the same year the New York Department of Education directed the program to stop operating without a license.

In advertisements for Trump University, Trump said he "hand-picked" the instructors, but he did not remember a single instructor during a deposition.

The November settlement brought together former Trump University students from three lawsuits: two federal class-action suits in San Diego, and a separate one brought by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

The approval of the settlement had been opposed by one former student, Sherri B. Simpson, who thought she could get more money by going to trial. Simpson told CNN she spent about $20,000 on Trump University courses in 2010.

Judge Curiel dismissed Simpson's objection. "That only one procedurally valid objection was filed... is indicative of the fairness, adequacy, and reasonableness of the Settlement," he said.

Trump criticizes congress, the courts, the leaders of Mexico, Australia, UK, and Germany. The only person he doesn't criticize is Putin who he calls smart and a great leader. Trump is guilty as hell. I hope we are able to prove that before he goes off the deep end and starts WWIII because he can't stand losing.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/31/opinions/t...itis/index.html

The Russian interference, which former Vice President Dick Cheney labeled an "act of war," is a serious matter. But if the sitting President of the United States and his team coordinated with a hostile power, the issue would be infinitely more serious. It would raise questions not only about President Trump's legitimacy but also about the motivation for his policy decisions going forward.

That's why it is baffling that Trump is not doing everything in his power to clear his name. Like every person, Trump deserves the presumption of innocence. Fairness demands that we assume he is innocent and then look at the evidence to see if contradicts that assumption.

Trump has two choices. He can work to clear his name, to demonstrate his innocence, or he can fight the investigation. If he is, indeed, innocent, getting all the facts on the table, giving his version of events, would serve his cause. If he has something to hide, it may make more sense to disrupt the probe.

Trump and his advisers seem to be doing the opposite of what one would expect from an innocent party. In the meantime, the questions keep mounting; the record of unreported meetings, questionable decisions, and baffling efforts to push the country's attention in a different direction make it look as if the administration has something to hide.

Now, Trump's former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn -- fired in a storm of controversy after unreported meetings with Russia's ambassador -- wants immunity from prosecution to tell his story. He once said, "When you're given immunity... you probably committed a crime." Trump himself has argued that seeking immunity is a sign of guilt, but on Friday, he tweeted, "Mike Flynn should ask for immunity in that this is a witch hunt (excuse for big election loss), by media & Dems, of historic proportion!"

So if there was no collusion, why is Team Trump doing all they can to not find out what happened? Don't they want to know what Russia did?

What's funny is the fact that Obama and Hillary were accused of a few GOP lead rumors but all were unfounded, today we have Trump and several of his surrogates scrambling for cover, why? if they did nothing wrong, why all the lying, distractions, deflection and attempt to hide their actions?

Ideology, yes we have seen this in other countries with dictators who attempt to rule with a iron fist. Only fools get as you put it "pulled" into a trap but negate to consider the consequences, which in this case, a fool who is obviously way in over his head and Liberals saw that from day one when Trump announced his candidacy.

RUBBISH... EVERYTHING has an ideology. The question is whether (or not) the ideology squares with the facts... PERIOD.

Both 'sides' as you put it, suggests that it's anywhere near that childishly simplistic. I submit that it is that precise king of thinking (us vs them, as you are so clearly framing matters) that gives birth to such practices of ideology over fact.

Are you sure? LOL

http://www.cnn.com/2017/03/31/politics/donald-trump-executive-order-signing-walk-out/index.html

President Donald Trump walked out of an executive order signing ceremony Friday -- without actually signing the orders.

During the signing ceremony, White House pool reporters asked Trump questions about his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, who has offered to testify on Russian involvement in the US election in return for immunity from prosecution.
The President ignored the questions and moved to another room, only to be chased by Vice President Mike Pence, who picked up the folders containing the two executive orders.

Trump later signed the pair of orders aimed at identifying and targeting foreign trade abuses, according to the White House, but behind closed doors.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/why-polls-differ-on-trumps-popularity/

Here’s what we can say for sure: It’s unprecedented for a president to face so much opposition from the electorate so soon. Recent polls show that anywhere between 43 and 56 percent of Americans disapprove of President Trump’s job performance. Even if you take the low end of that range, Trump’s numbers are much worse than any past president a month into his term.

President Donald Trump’s job approval ratings are low in any context, but they look even worse through a historical lens.

Gallup’s latest poll, issued Friday, shows 38 percent of American adults approve of the job Trump is doing as president, and 56 percent disapprove.

That’s comparable to some of the ratings his predecessors saw. But what’s different is the timing. It took far more than a year before presidents from Ronald Reagan through Barack Obama earned the disapproval of a majority of the public, according to Gallup. It took Trump just over a week.

Trump, barely two months into his presidency, is well within the “honeymoon period” that other presidents have enjoyed. Despite a wave of high-profile controversies and setbacks, including the failure of the Obamacare repeal bill, his White House has yet to face a recession, a major international incident or any sort of crisis beyond the self-inflicted.

http://www.snopes.com/trump-considering-resignation/

On 31 March 2017, a number of web sites (including Opposing Views and Proud Liberal) posted articles reporting that United States President Donald Trump was considering resigning. The web sites all cited a tweet posted by Claude Taylor, a travel photographer who says he worked as a staffer in the Clinton White House:

An ind journalist I have worked with-who has been reliable-says they have 2 sources that say Trump is considering options-incl resignation.

— Claude Taylor (@TrueFactsStated) March 31, 2017


We reached out to Taylor on Twitter but have not received a response. Because the claim is hearsay, based on an unnamed source quoting other unnamed sources, it is impossible to verify without further information.

The rumor seems couched in the apparently darkening cloud surrounding President Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn, who resigned after 24 days in office over revelations he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his meetings with a Russian envoy. On 30 March, the Wall Street Journal broke news that Flynn offered authorities and intelligence officials an interview in exchange for immunity against prosecution.

It is not the first time questions have floated about the 45th president’s tenure in office. On 17 March 2017, Sen. Diane Feinstein told an activists in her home state of California who asked how Trump could be removed from office: ““We have a lot of people looking at this, technical people. And I think he is going to get himself out.” She went on to say that Trump’s adult children traveling overseas for private business purposes while spending taxpayer money to do so should be illegal.

The resignation of a U.S. president has only happened once in history — Richard Nixon resigned in 1974 amid the Watergate scandal. President Trump has made no public indication of any intent to resign.

Add NATO to the long list of issues that President Trump has pulled a full reversal on.

Trump heartily sang the praises of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization on Wednesday, praising its work to combat terrorism and describing an organization he’s long criticized as “the bulwark of international peace and security.”

“I said it was obsolete. It’s no longer obsolete,” he said in a joint press conference alongside NATO Secretary Gen.Jens Stoltenberg.

Lets see if bluster turns into "intelligent" diplomacy.
Our ignorant president seems to forget that he's not the only erratic leader with their hands on a nuclear button.

We can agree it is *really* weird that Trump has said he

a) knows Putin very well

and

b) doesn't know Putin at all.

Right?

What we're seeing since Trump's inauguration is the ability of Conservatives to lie, change the narrative and spin at will when cornered or caught in a jam.

Shaun Spicer marginalized every Jewish citizen when he attempted to explain Assad's or Russian involvement to chemical attack.

Trump has done a 180 on every statement he has made since his campaign.

A new Republican slogan "We can lie on the fly"

Prediction prof: Trump will be impeached

By Edward-Isaac Dovere 04/13/17 05:17 AM EDT

The professor who took hell for predicting President Donald Trump has a much longer case for predicting President Mike Pence—and it’s all in his new book, out next week.

Allan Lichtman reached meme-status last fall for predicting Trump would win long before anyone else, using a formula based on the popularity of the party in control of the White House that accurately predicted the eight previous presidential elections. Now Lichtman wants everyone to pay attention to the rest of what came through his crystal ball — that Trump will now be impeached.

The people who only paid attention to the professor’s first prediction include the commander in chief, whom Lichtman says reached out to him during the transition.

“Taking time out of preparing to become the world’s most powerful leader, he wrote me a personal note, saying ‘Professor — Congrats — good call,’” Lichtman writes in “The Case for Impeachment,” an advance copy of which was shared with POLITICO. “What Trump overlooked, however, was my ‘next big prediction’: that, after winning the presidency, he would be impeached.”

Very interesting article.

Flipping on six major policy issues in 12 hours earlier this week (China, NATO, interest rates, the national debt, the Export-Import Bank), count on a back-flip by the manchild.
Trump creates his own undoing. That's his m.o.
Unfortunately, the most we can expect from the fool is his ability to govern from behind...and the tweetstorm following his removal from the Oval Office.

By Matthew Nussbaum

For Trump’s antagonists, irking the commander in chief is an added bonus to protesting.

“The reality is that a majority of the country opposed Trump on Election Day and continue to oppose Trump,” Neera Tanden, the president of the leading liberal think tank Center for American Progress, said in an interview.

Part of the problem for Trump, Tanden said, is fixation on crowd size, especially during the campaign. She admits that Trump in many ways turned out to be right during the presidential race in using crowd size as a barometer for enthusiasm. But now that same calculus works against him.

“People are more motivated than I’ve ever seen them,” Tanden said. And Trump’s complaining about protesters, Tanden said, “prods people to protest more.”

“It strengthens the resolve,” she added.

ill O’Reilly, the star of Fox News’ primetime line up, is leaving the network after more than two decades.

“After a thorough and careful review of the allegations, the Company and Bill O’Reilly have agreed that Bill O’Reilly will not be returning to the Fox News Channel,” 21st Century Fox said in a statement.

Trump defended O’Reilly from the Oval Office four days after the NYT reported O’Reilly or Fox News Channel had settled five womens’ claims of sexual harassment or inappropriate behavior. O’Reilly has said the allegations are without merit.

“He’s a person I know well; he’s a good person,” Trump said of O’Reilly.

Right Wing Media Is Imploding
14,776 views

Tomi Lahren is suing Glenn Beck and he’s suing her back. Alex Jones is in the middle of a bitter custody battle that is causing all sorts of weird stories to emerge about the right wing conspiracy theorist. More women have come forward and accused Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment and now Fox is considering firing him. Add all these up and it paints a very clear picture: Right wing hate talkers are imploding, and that’s great news for America. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.

Trump is an old man who had no idea what he was getting into? He thought being president was going to be easy? That shows how terribly ignorant he is. How in the world did the American dream come to this nightmare?

http://www.politico.com/story/2017/04/28/trump-presidency-easier-previous-life-237728

President Donald Trump said Thursday he expected the presidency to be "easier" than his "previous life" as a real estate mogul.

"I loved my previous life. I had so many things going," the president told Reuters in a wide-ranging Oval Office interview. "This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier."

The president also expressed a willingness to attend next year's White House Correspondents' Dinner, after breaking with decades of precedent in February by publicly rejecting an invitation to attend this year's gala.

"I would come next year, absolutely," he said of the event.

The 2017 White House Correspodents' Dinner will take place April 29 without Trump and the White House staff, who will not attend in support of the president's decision.

Trump, who spent years in the public limelight as a billionaire real estate magnate and reality television star, also lamented the lack of privacy in his new life as the country's most prominent public servant.

"You're really into your own little cocoon, because you have such massive protection that you really can't go anywhere," he said.

Trump added: "I like to drive. I can't drive any more."

Of course he did, what president hasn't? Do you think Obama went on a two month vacation because for 8 years he didn't miss the freedom of being able to do what he wanted when ever he wanted? Do you think any airman, marine, soldier, or sailor doesn't long for the freedom to come and go as they please that they had before they signed on?

These people, including the president, do what they do out of desire to serve their country and fulfill a higher calling that is greater than any one individual, not out of a desire to escape a horrible life.

Trump had the worst first 100 days since they started keeping track of that 100 years ago. He had the worst approval rating of a new president in 100 years. He is in way over his head and that is starting to become obvious to him as well as the American public in general.

Donald Trump Is Even Lazier Than We Thought

By missivonne

Friday Apr 28, 2017 · 4:52 PM EST

I think people are missing the real revelation of the interview with Reuters. Of course, only an ignoramus would think being president was easy.

But the really amazing thing is that Donald Trump — a man who doesn't read, who can't manage to sit still for a 30-minute meeting, who has to have policy spoon-fed to him (and still usually doesn’t comprehend it), who spends most of his time watching Fox News and playing on Twitter and most weekends golfing — says he's working harder now than he ever has before.

Try to fathom that. If basically phoning it in as president is more work than he's used to, that means he basically did nothing before. It boggles the mind that this bankruptcy-prone grifter ever got the reputation of being a smart, hardworking businessman.

I rounded it off. That is certainly not as big a tall tail as Trump tells several times a day. Trump invented fake news. I never that term or alternative facts until Trump showed up.

https://www.apnews.com/c83a048828fd4e1884fe897eca053717/Trump's-first-100-days:-A-president's-very-public-education

WASHINGTON (AP) — Health care is complicated. China can be a useful ally. NATO isn't obsolete. Being president is hard.

Over the course of his 100 days in office, President Donald Trump has been startlingly candid about his public education in the ways of Washington and the world.

He's been blocked by the courts and befuddled by a divided Republican Party that's running Congress, and his first months on the job have left the long-time reality-TV and real estate tycoon struggling for major governing victories and searching for a new approach to many of his campaign promises.

His "America first" campaign rhetoric has bumped up against the challenges of conflict overseas. His ambitious declarations on health care and immigration have run into the limits of Congress and the courts.

A president who prides himself on his ideological flexibility has struggled to manage a novice political team, split between moderate and conservative advisers, and he's found himself reaching out to the friends and business associates from the world he left behind.

On foreign policy, Trump has been persuaded by foreign leaders and has leaned heavily on a national security team with more governing experience than his political advisers. He's looked for lessons in his biggest victory: putting a conservative judge, Neil Gorsuch, on the Supreme Court.

"I really just see the bigness of it all, but also the responsibility. And the human responsibility," Trump said in an Associated Press interview, assessing the difficulty of the presidency.

"This is tougher than what he thought," said Trump friend and business partner Phil Ruffin, who has visited the president twice since he took office Jan. 20. "In business, you make a decision and it happens. In government, it's not like that."
