Great reporting Kyle, I've gone to many graduations from high school to major universities and this ignorant bigoted racist apparently haven't notice the classes of immigrants getting Bachelors, Masters and PHD's to utilize back in their impoverish homelands or better yet, how many foreign doctors are now in your hometown? I know in mines, White doctors and becoming the minority.

While the president and his staff paint a picture of sh*thole countries, maybe he can address the sh*thole areas in our own backyard along with high drug use, lack of education and jobs.

There's a dullard here this morning attempting to rewrite history but the fool doesn't seem to understand that history is already being recorded, we now have the worst president on US history and turning back the hands of time is a fruitless wish of a tired old man.

President Donald Trump praised his late mother as “incredible” in a Mother’s Day video on Sunday but made no mention of his wife, Melania, who’s the mother of his youngest son.

Nor did he mention his two ex-wives, with whom he had four other children, in a message posted to Twitter.

Trump recognized the holiday as “one of the most important days of the year,” calling it “a special opportunity to honor all of the mothers and grandmothers in our lives.”

“She was just incredible,” he said of his late mother, Mary MacLeod Trump, an immigrant from Scotland. “Warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person.

When it comes to promoting conspiracy theories, Donald Trump Jr. seems to take after his father.

As Roseanne Barr embarked on a Tuesday morning Twitter barrage that led ABC to cancel her sitcom, the president’s son retweeted two of her posts attacking billionaire Democratic donor George Soros, including one that called Soros, a Holocaust survivor, “a Nazi.”
Donald Trump Jr. retweeted two of Roseanne Barr’s claims about George Soros on Tuesday.

An earlier Barr tweet with a racist slur against former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was cited by the network when it pulled the plug on its top-rated show. Barr has since deleted the tweet, which referred to Jarrett, who is African-American, as the offspring of the “Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes.”

Trump Jr. did not retweet that one.

A spokesman for Soros said Barr’s “false allegations are insulting to the victims of the Holocaust” and “an affront to Mr. Soros & his family, who against the odds managed to survive.”

Right-wing conspiracy theories portraying Soros — who is Jewish and was 9 years old when World War II began — as a Nazi collaborator have become internet staples. Propagated by the likes of former Fox News host Glenn Beck, actor James Wood, and conservative commentators Ann Coulter, Dinesh D’Souza and Mike Cernovich, that belief has become an article of faith in some Republican quarters.
Investor, business magnate, philanthropist and political activist George Soros has been a target of right-wing conspiracy theories.

But after Beck devoted a show to exposing what he believed to be the secret truth about Soros, Anti-Defamation League director Abraham Foxman issued a statement calling the segment “repugnant.”

“For a political commentator or entertainer to have the audacity to say – inaccurately – that there’s a Jewish boy sending Jews to death camps, as part of a broader assault on Mr. Soros, that’s horrific,” Foxman wrote. “While I, too, may disagree with many of Soros’ views and analysis on the issues, to bring in this kind of innuendo about his past is unacceptable. To hold a young boy responsible for what was going on around him during the Holocaust as part of a larger effort to denigrate the man is repugnant.”

Trump Jr., like his father, has a well-documented history of retweeting or liking politically divisive messages on Twitter, as he did in February when he liked a message on the platform that promoted a conspiracy theory about 17-year-old Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, or when, in 2016, Trump Jr. retweeted an attack on Hillary Clinton by Kevin MacDonald, who the Times of Israel called a “psychologist notorious for his theories of Jewish manipulation and control.”

The Trump organization did not respond to a request for a comment.

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/trumps-fatal-flaw-becoming-dangerous-even-173821635.html

President’s Trump’s best asset as a politician right now is the strong US economy. Unemployment is low, profits are up and Americans feel more secure than they have in over a decade.

If Trump simply let the economy do its thing, he’d have a solid pitch to voters come the midterm elections in November: You’re better off with me and my fellow Republicans in charge. Let’s keep it that way.

Trump seems motivated by something else, however. It’s clear by now he’s obsessed with trade, and with rewiring the global flow of goods that has evolved during the last 30 years.
His latest moves include the imposition of steel and aluminum tariffs on allies that seemed likely to gain exemptions, including Canada, Mexico and the 28 countries of the European Union. Trump has now made clear: No exemptions. And as expected, those trade partners have responded in kind, announcing tariffs on a like amount of American imports including motorcycles, bourbon, pork, apples and cheese.

Trump may be just getting started. On May 29 he announced there will be new tariffs on $50 billion of imports from China, beginning in mid-June. He’s also considering tariffs of up to 25% on 8 million imported autos Americans purchase each year. And who knows what else.
No winners in a trade war

These are the trade wars Trump thinks he can win, and Trump is no longer threatening such wars—he’s launching them. Since the United States imports more than it exports, Trump seems to think we can slap tariffs on a lot more products than any trading partner can. But this is financial markets’ worst fear regarding Trump, because escalating tariffs can easily become a war of attrition in which governments destroy value and the “winner” is whoever loses the least.

I’ve referred to Trump before as 70s Man: He views smokestack industries such as steel and coal as the backbone of American economic might, even though we’ve evolved into a service and technology economy with manufacturing as an important, but declining, sector. Trump’s fatal flaw is this outdated view of the economy. He feels manufacturing is so important that he’s willing to sacrifice jobs and profits elsewhere—in retail and agriculture, for example—to boost a sector that has been in natural decline as a portion of the nation’s overall economic output.

Economies change continually, with new industries always displacing old ones. Workers in declining industries undoubtedly get hurt, as jobs disappear and the new ones created are in different fields hundreds of miles away. The United States has done an inadequate job of helping displaced workers adapt and find new ways to prosper, and Trump has adroitly appealed to the “forgotten men and women” other politicians have jabbered about but done little or nothing to help.

But Trump’s style of protectionism will produce more displaced workers, in the industries that are harmed as the collateral damage in his trade wars. This will happen in at least two ways. First, tariffs are a tax that boosts the price of the protected product, in this case steel and aluminum. So domestic producers earn more money and might hire more workers. But other companies that purchase those products, such as producers of cars, appliances and beverages, now have to pay more, and their products become more expensive, which means sales could suffer. That kills profits and jobs.

More damage comes from retaliatory tariffs imposed by other countries, which raises the prices of American exports and reduces sales. Some US farmers and business owners have already been complaining about reduced access to Chinese markets, after tit-for-tat protectionist measures by both countries. Trump’s Commerce Secretary, Wilbur Ross, said in April that Americans need to “absorb a little bit of pain” to get better trade deals that will help the US economy. Well, the pain is arriving. What Americans really need to do is tolerate the pain longer than our trade-war foes, hoping they blink first.

The stock market has been flat this year, which is odd given that the Trump tax cuts signed in 2017 have sent corporate profits soaring. Business leaders cite Trump-style protectionism as one of their top concerns, and market selloffs have typically followed Trump’s tariff announcements this year. Many investors view Trump’s tariffs as temporary cudgels meant to establish leverage he can use for negotiating better trade deals, but they are starting to look more like long-term policies that could weigh down markets indefinitely.

There’s also been blowback to Trump’s protectionism in farm states crucial to the outcome of the US midterm elections, including Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and North Dakota, as farmers discover new barriers to selling their products overseas. Does Trump care? Is there a master plan for ironing this all out by November? Increasingly, it seems like there is not. 70s Man wants his tariffs, and more US steel on the street. The rest of the economy can wait.

A growing majority of voters think President Donald Trump’s Twitter feed, with its more than 50 million followers, is harmful to the United States.

The new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found 62% of voters classify Trump’s tweets as “a bad thing” while 20% said it was “a good thing.” These numbers show a slight shift in opinion about Trump’s use of Twitter from last June, when 59% of voters said the tweets were a bad thing while 23% said they were a good thing.

Kerry slams Trump’s 'strange,' 'disgraceful' NATO performance

“I’ve never seen a president say anything as strange or counterproductive as President Trump’s harangue against NATO and Germany,” Kerry said in a scathing statement. “It was disgraceful, destructive, and flies in the face of actual American interests.”

Speaking before a breakfast with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in Brussels, Trump accused Germany of being held “captive” by Russia.

“Germany is totally controlled by Russia,” Trump said. “Because they will be getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline. And you tell me if that’s appropriate, because I think it’s not.”

Trump also decried U.S. allies for not contributing more to military spending and demanded that NATO double its stated goal of each country committing 2 percent of their gross domestic product to the defense budget by 2025. And he insisted that they pay 2 percent “immediately.”

“Many countries are not paying what they should,” Trump said. “And, frankly, many countries owe us a tremendous amount of money for many years back, where they’re delinquent, as far as I’m concerned, because the United States has had to pay for them.”

Those comments dismayed Kerry, who felt compelled to speak out in a prepared statement.

“Why would an American president whose first NATO meeting last year was a disaster, show up in Belgium this year just to prove he doesn’t understand how vital alliances have made a huge difference for the security of the United States and the lives of Europeans?” Kerry asked. “I’d think he might remember that it was NATO that stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States after 9/11, among many other contributions.”

Current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who is with Trump in Brussels, released a statement that sounded more in line with Kerry than the commander in chief.

“NATO is the most successful alliance in history,” Pompeo tweeted. “All #NATO allies have committed to extending this success through increased defense spending, deterrence and defense, and fighting terrorism. Weakness provokes; strength and cohesion protects. This remains our bedrock belief.”

http://www.palmerreport.com/analysis/panic-vladimir-putin-button-trump/11639/

Earlier this week Vladimir Putin concluded that he and his puppet Donald Trump had overextended themselves. Putin announced that he didn’t think he would accept Trump’s offer to visit the White House. Sure enough, Trump took the hint, and “postponed” the planned visit until next year. It was clear that Putin wanted to avoid standing next to Trump for quite awhile, in the hope that accusations of treason against Trump would blow over. Then everything blew up yesterday, and now Putin is hitting the panic button.

Last night we learned that Michael Cohen witnessed Donald Trump signing off on Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with the Russians during the elections, and that Cohen is willing to testify about it. This changes everything, because it looked like there would never be a witness willing to confirm that Trump knew about the meeting. Now that there is, we can draw a fairly straight line from Donald Trump to an eventual prison cell.

CNN’s Don Lemon says Donald Trump’s presidency “can be defined by lies.”

On Friday’s broadcast of “CNN Tonight,” the news anchor claimed Trump had told “well over 2,000” untruths during his time in the White House.

Lemon said the “sheer number of lies can be overwhelming,” but also warned people may “become numb to all of this” and tell themselves it’s “just Trump being Trump.”

“This is a man who built his campaign on lies,” Lemon continued, before noting just some of the falsehoods spouted by Trump before he’d even entered the Oval Office. In May, Lemon doubled down on calling Trump a racist.

House Republicans offered a budget proposal on Tuesday that would cut mandatory spending by $5.4 trillion over a decade, including $537 billion in cuts to Medicare and $1.5 trillion in cuts to Medicaid and other health programs.

On Medicare, the budget would move towards a system of private health insurance plans competing with one other, rather than the current open-ended, government-provided Medicare system.

On Medicaid, the budget would impose new caps that could lead to cuts in payments over time.
