Slavery was America's first sin. Trump is America's second.
Americans, allies and adversaries see that the US is breaking. Trump is the biggest enemy the US has ever had.
NOTE: In contrast to Trump and bogus Republicans, this is a conservative web site, committed to conserving American values, human rights and diversity, family unity, the environment and biodiversity, voting rights, truth, rule of law, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, freedom, equality, democracy and humanity ... regardless of race, ethnicity, creed and gender. Trump has transformed political Republicans into mostly a destructive force against America and the world.
Pre-election entries appear on the 'ORIGINAL SITE' link above. November 2016 election to December 2018 entries via link 2017/2018 links above. The site's entries and analyses are voluminous because the number of adverse events is voluminous.
December 6: Trump sent an official letter to the House of Representatives demanding a fast impeachment. Trump conceded that he has no esculpatory evidence and thus will not accept the House's invitation that he asked for, participation with the House impeachment process. Obviously, Trump is guilty of abuse of power, obstruction of justice and congress, degrading national security, conspiring for foreign interference in US elections and violating his oath of office.
December 5: Desperate to find someone that will lie for him, Trump has been announcing that 2 Republican 'prosecutors' hired by Trump/Barr will smash the FBI, CIA and DOJ for investigating Putin's delivery of Trump's 2016 election. Spoiler alert: neither Trump's DOJ Inspector General or outside prosecutor (Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s and U.S. Attorney John Durham) will support Trump's fiction conspiracy that Russia did not interfere with the 2016 election AND that FBI/CIA/DOJ. criminally conspired against Trump's collusion with Russia.
December 4: Senate Republicans are so certain that Trump will be impeached in the House that the Senate has cleared its schedule for January 2020 for Trump's trial, for which Senate Republicans will parrot Putin, attack facts and undermine the Constitution. They will continue to rely on foreign intervention to degrade US democracy.
December 4: During the hearing, Trump continued his search for foreign intervention in the 2020 election, sending Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine to work with corrupt prosecutor fired by Ukraine and other Russian operatives to prepare a capaign video for Trump. Trump will contrive a falsified saga of Joe Biden. Trump knows that he cannot win election without illicit foreign intervention. Fraudulent, criminial, impeachable.
December 4: "But the Framers of our Constitution realized that elections alone could not guarantee that the United States would remain a republic. One of the key reasons for including an impeachment power was the risk that unscrupulous officials might try to rig the election process. At the Constitutional Convention, William Davie warned that unless the Constitution contained an impeachment provision, a president might “spare no efforts or means whatever to get himself re-elected.” And George Mason insisted that a president who “procured his appointment in the first instance” through improper and corrupt acts should not “escape punishment, by repeating his guilt.” Mason was responsible for adding “high Crimes and Misdemeanors” to the list of impeachable offenses. So we know that that list was designed to reach a president who acts to subvert an election—whether it is the election that brought him into office or an upcoming election where he seeks a second term. Moreover, the Founding Generation, like every generation of Americans since, was especially concerned to protect our government and our democratic process from outside interference. For example, John Adams expressed concern with the very idea of an elected President, writing to Thomas Jefferson that “You are apprehensive of foreign Interference, Intrigue, Influence.—So am I—But, as often as elections happen, the danger of foreign Influence recurs.” And in his Farewell Address, President Washington warned that “history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.” The very idea that a President might seek the aid of a foreign government in his reelection campaign would have horrified them. But based on the evidentiary record, that is what President Trump has done. Based on the evidentiary record, what has happened in the case before you is something that I do not think we have ever seen before: a president who has doubled down on violating his oath to faithfully execute the laws and to protect and defend the Cons titution. 11 The evidence reveals a President who used the powers of his office to demand that a foreign government participate in undermining a competing candidate for the presidency. If we are to keep faith with the Constitution and our Republic, President Trump must be held to account." Pamela Karlan, testimony for impeachment)
It is a wonderful to watch an American stand up for America and its Constitution. Bravo.
Trump is turning off the lights of how Ronald Reagan viewed the Untited States, "the shining city on a hill."
"However [political parties] may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people and to usurp for themselves the reins of government, destroying afterwards the very engines which have lifted them to unjust dominion." (George Washington, September 17, 1776)
December 4: ‘GOP’ now stands for ‘Gang of Putin’. Of all the changes that have occurred in our politics since the rise of Donald Trump, the most gut-wrenching for me personally is to see the Republican Party transformed into the Kremlin’s “useful idiots.” By turning into apologists and advocates for a Russian dictator, the Republican Party has become all that it once despised. (Max Boot, a real Republican)
December 3: Two impeachment reports were issued. The official one from the House Intelligence committee. 300+ pages of facts and sound references concluding that Trump is a criminal and unfit for office. The other, as if it was dictated by Vladimir Putin, from fake Republicans in the Intelligence Committee, the leader of which co-conspired with Trump's Ukraine extortion to announce a bogus investigation into Joe Biden. 123 pages of Putin disinformation propaganda, fake news, lies and fiction conspiracies.
December 2: ""The American people deserve transparency. If the President thinks the call was 'perfect' and there is nothing to hide then he would turn over the thousands of pages of documents requested by Congress, allow witnesses to testify instead of blocking testimony with baseless privilege claims, and provide any exculpatory information that refutes the overwhelming evidence of his abuse of power." (Gerry Nadler, House Judiciary Chair)
Trump has transformed Republicans into his own likeness, Russian puppets. All they can do to defend Trump against impeachment is parroting Russia's disinformation propaganda and encourage 2020 election interference for Trump as they did for the 2016 election. Without Putin Trump cannot get re-elected. Putin has learned that Trump and fake Republicans are gullible and now frightened that he will abandon them, and so they implement Putin's mission against America.
December 2: From a favorite Trump target, Lisa Page about why she is finally speaking out after years of Trump abuse and lies. “Honestly, his demeaning fake orgasm was really the straw that broke the camel’s back.” Trump called out her name as he acted out an orgasm in front of thousands of people at a Minneapolis rally on Oct. 11, 2019. "I had stayed quiet for years hoping it would fade away, but instead it got worse. My heart drops to my stomach when I realize he has tweeted about me again. He’s demeaning me and my career. It’s sickening. And when the president accuses you of treason by name, despite the fact that I know there's no fathomable way that I have committed any crime at all, let alone treason, he's still somebody in a position to actually do something about that. To try to further destroy my life. It never goes away or stops, even when he’s not publicly attacking me. It’s very painful to see to places like the FBI and the Department of Justice that represent so much of what is excellent about this country, not fulfilling the critical obligation that they have to speak truth to power. So it’s particularly devastating to be betrayed by an organization I still care about so deeply. And it’s crushing to see the noble Justice Department, my Justice Department, the place I grew up in, feel like it’s abandoned its principles of truth and independence."
It’s not just that Lisa Page may never be safe as long as Trump is president. It’s that we won’t be safe, either.
Also shocking is his orgasm performance during his October 11, 2019 rally used to ridicule a lawyer for the FBI, Lisa Page. The President of the United States performing an orgasm on stage in front of thousands in the audience and millions watching TV around the world for young children to observe!
And of course, Trump attacked Lisa Page after she said that she was sickened by his orgasm performance .
November 30: "Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President. For everyone who ever served in uniform, or in the intelligence community, for those diplomats who voice the nation's principles, for the first responders, for the tellers of truth and the millions of American citizens who were raised believing in American values — you would have seen your reflection in the faces of those we honored last week. Beneath the outward sense of hope and duty, there was an underlying current of frustration, humiliation, anger and fear. They have seen our leaders stand beside despots and strongmen, preferring their government narrative to our own. They have seen our leaders stand beside despots and strongmen, preferring their government narrative to our own. They have seen us abandon our allies and have heard the shouts of betrayal from the battlefield. As I stood on the parade field at Fort Bragg, one retired four-star general, grabbed my arm, shook me and shouted, 'I don't like the Democrats, but Trump is destroying the Republic!' Those words echoed with me throughout the week. If our promises are meaningless, how will our allies ever trust us? If we can't have faith in our nation's principles, why would the men and women of this nation join the military. And if they don't join, who will protect us? If we are not the champions of the good and the right, then who will follow us? And if no one follows us — where will the world end up? Your leadership, however, has shown little of these qualities. Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation." (The retired US Navy Adm. William McRaven, a Navy SEAL who oversaw the raid that took out al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden in 2011)
Dr. Fiona Hill warned in her testimony last Thursday, “Some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country — and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves.” And yet, the following day, President Trump championed this very discredited narrative by pinning election interference on Ukraine in a rambling interview on Fox & Friends. Trump’s continued embrace of conspiracy theories, his nativistic leadership style, and his ability to exploit rather than bridge divides is helping to fuel xenophobic nationalism not only in America but also amongst some of our closest allies abroad. (R. David Harden)
November 28: With Trump's blessing, Republican Danielle Stella is running for congress on the platform of HANGING Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
Trump is “a flawed, awful shitbird of the worst order” and a “political and moral monster” who will go down in history “for endemic corruption, outrageous stupidity, egregious cruelty, and inhumanity” and who has spread “moral and political contagion” and caused the collapse “of a once-great party.”
November 26: Rick Perry says Trump (and Obama) were 'ordained by God' to be president.
False. Obama was elected by Americans. Trump was elected by Russia.
November 25: A federal judge ruled regarding Trump,
"Stated simply, the primary takeaway from the past 250 years of recorded American history is that Presidents are not kings. See The Federalist No. 51 (James Madison); The Federalist No. 69 (Alexander Hamilton); 1 Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America 115–18 (Harvey C. Mansfield & Delba Winthrop eds. & trans., Univ. of Chicago Press 2000) (1835). This means that they do not have subjects, bound by loyalty or blood, whose destiny they are entitled to control. Rather, in this land of liberty, it is indisputable that current and former employees of the White House work for the People of the United States, and that they take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Moreover, as citizens of the United States, current and former senior-level presidential aides have constitutional rights, including the right to free speech, and they retain these rights even after they have transitioned back into private life...Thus, DOJ’s present assertion that the absolute testimonial immunity that senior-level presidential aides possess is, ultimately, owned by the President, and can be invoked by the President to overcome the aides’ own will to testify, is a proposition that cannot be squared with core constitutional values, and for this reason alone, it cannot be sustained...To make the point as plain as possible, it is clear to this Court for the reasons explained above that, with respect to senior-level presidential aides, absolute immunity from compelled congressional process simply does not exist...Thus, for the myriad reasons laid out above as well as those that are articulated plainly in the prior precedents of the Supreme Court, the D.C. Circuit, and the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, this Court holds that individuals who have been subpoenaed for testimony by an authorized committee of Congress must appear for testimony in response to that subpoena—i.e., they cannot ignore or defy congressional compulsory process, by order of the President or otherwise...The United States of America has a government of laws and not of men...But as far as the duty to appear is concerned, this Court holds that Executive branch officials are not absolutely immune from compulsory congressional process—no matter how many times the Executive branch has asserted as much over the years—even if the President expressly directs such officials’ non-compliance...Nor is the power of the Executive unfairly or improperly diminished when the Judiciary mandates adherence to the law and thus refuses to recognize a veto-like discretionary power of the President to cancel his subordinates’ legal obligations. To the contrary, when a duly authorized committee of Congress issues a valid subpoena to a current or former Executive branch official, and thereafter, a federal court determines that the subpoenaed official does, as a matter of law, have a duty to respond notwithstanding any contrary order of the President, the venerated constitutional principles that animate the structure of our government and undergird our most vital democratic institutions are preserved."
November 25: Trump's golf habit has already cost taxpayers at least $102 million in extra travel and security expenses, and next month will achieve a new milestone: a seven-figure presidential visit to another country so he can play at his own course. Actually, it's taxapyer subsidized advertising for his business.
November 25: Trump fired Navy Secretary Richard V. Spencer for saying, "I cannot in good conscience obey an order that I believe violates the sacred oath I took in the presence of my family, my flag, and my faith."
Trump endorses war crimes, a lesson those future criminals in the military will rely on to exonerate their own war crimes.
Disturbing and sad to see teenagers display hyper-large Trump flags from their vehicles. Consider what they are learning is acceptable from Trump and his fake Republicans: immorality, lying, cheating, pursuing crime, sexual assault, pedophilia, racism, trashing American values and the US Constitution, mocking the disabled, encouraging violence, screaming four-letter words, name calling, bullying, caging and raping children, disrespect, enjoying police officers shoot non-whites, disregard for human and property rights, poisoning the environment, applauding war crimes, praising murderous dictators and enemies of the US....in short, all the worst traits possible.
If this is the future for the US, we will have a dystopian future.
November 24: According to China, "The United States is broadly engaged in unilateralism and protectionism, and is damaging multilateralism and the multilateral trading system. It has already become the world’s biggest destabilizing factor."
November 23: Trump had another co-conspirator in his illicit scheme to bribe Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden.....top fake Republican in the House impeachment hearing, Devin Nunes. Turns out that not only did Nunes conspire with Trump against the Mueller investigation (including illicit cab rides to the White House in the middle of the night), Nunes went to Vienna last December (costing US taxpayers $63,000) to meet with Ukraine's corrupt ex 'prosecutor' Victor Shokin last December (Shokin was ousted from his Ukraine position in Ukraine's government in 2016 due to his corruption). So, this Trump conspiracy includes at least Shokin, Giuliani, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Sondland, Perry, Volker and 2 Giuliani associates arrested last month trying to flee the US.
November 23: “The Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have unearthed enough evidence, in my opinion, to justify about three or four articles of impeachment against the president, according to Fox News' Judge Anthony Napolitano. "One is bribery. The allegation is the technical definition of bribery is the failure to perform an official duty until a thing of value comes your way," continued Napolitano. "And they will argue that the president’s failure to disperse funds that the Congress ordered, they dispersed until the recipient of the funds agreed to investigate a potential political opponent is an act of bribery. The second charge will be high crimes and misdemeanors, election law violation. The third crime will be obstruction of justice. The fourth will be interference with a witness, and the fifth may be lying under oath. The evidence of his impeachable behavior at this point, in my view, is overwhelming."
November 23: Trump boasted that Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz was about to announce that top officials in the FBI and DOJ illegally conspired to investigate the 2016 election's connection with Russia to assure Trump's election. False again. Horowitz will report no such thing occurred.
November 22: Two weeks ago, National Security advisor John Bolton said that he was in many relevant meetings and conversations in the White House that have not yet been discussed. Today, Bolton teased...." For the backstory, stay tuned........"
All the witnesses that testified to the impeachment hearing referred to top US officials collaborating with Trump's conspiracy against the US, eg Pompeo, Mulvaney, Giuliani, Perry and more. Notably, Trump, while claiming they have the real truth that would devestate the impeachment witnesses, Trump will not permit them to testify. Obviously, they have nothing that would help Trump from impeachment or Trump would order them to testify.
Trump has convinced 40% of voters to side with Russia, abandon America, consider the Constitution rubbage, degrade US national security, institute a monarchy, fall victim to conspiracy fictions, view private property as Trump property, be excited by caging and raping children, have fun mocking people especially if they are women or disabled,loathing facts, fire themselves with racism and pray to lies...and consider anyone who disagrees as human scum and traitors deserving assault and death.
November 21: Another close Trump associate was indicted for bribery, fraud and breach of trust....Israel President Benjamin Netanyahu. Six other close associates of Trump have been convicted for crimes against the US FOR Trump, some imprisoned for many more years.
November 21: From David Holmes from the US embassy in Ukraine during the impeachment hearing...
"Beginning in March 2019, the situation at the Embassy and in Ukraine changed dramatically . Specifically , our diplomatic policy that had been focused on supporting Ukrainian democratic reform and resistance to Russian aggression became overshadowed by a political agenda being promoted by Rudy Giuliani and a cadre of officials operating with a direct channel to the White House...Around the same time, became aware that Mr.Giuliani, ie private lawyer, was taking a direct role in Ukrainian diplomacy. On April 25, IvanBakanov, who was Mr. Zelensky's childhood friend, campaign chair, and ultimately appointed head of the Security Services of Ukraine, indicated to me privately he had been contacted by someone named Giuliani who said he was an advisor to the Vice President reported Mr. Bakanov's message to Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent. Over the following months, it became apparent that Mr.Giuliani was having a direct influence on the foreign policy agenda that the Three Amigos were executing on the ground in Ukraine. In fact, at one point during a preliminary meeting of the inauguration Delegation, someone wondered aloud about why Mr. Giulian iwas soactive in the media with respect to Ukraine. My recollection is that Ambassador Sondland stated, Dammit Rudy. Everytime Rudy gets involved he goes and fucks everything up ."
I heard Ambassador Sondland greet the President and explain that he was calling from Kyiv . I heard President Trump then clarify that Ambassador Sondland was in Ukraine. Ambassador Sondland replied, yes, he was in Ukraine and went on to state that President Zelensky "loves your ass." I then heard President Trump as , "he's gonna do the investigation?" Ambassador Sondland replied that "he' s gonna do it," adding that President Zelensky will do "anything you ask him to." Even though I did not take notes of these statements, have a clear recollection that these statements were made. I believe that my colleagues who were sitting at the table also knew that Ambassador Sondland was speaking with the President . After the call ended, Ambassador Sondland remarked that the President was in a bad mood, as Ambassador Sondland stated was often the case earlyin themorning. I then took theopportunity to ask Ambassador Sondland for his candid impression of the President's views on Ukraine. In particular, I asked Ambassador Sondlandif it was true that the President did not "give a shit about Ukraine." Ambassador Sondland agreed that the President did not "give a shit about Ukraine." I asked why not, and Ambassador Sondland stated that the Presidentonly cares about "big stuff." Ukraine, like a war with Russia, and Ambassador Sondland replied that he meant "big stuff" that benefits the President, like the Biden investigation Mr.Giuliani was pushing."
November 21: From Fiona HIll, working for Trump for two and a half years, at the impeachment hearing...
"I have no interest in advancing the outcome of your inquiry in any particular direction, except toward the truth. I have served our country under three presidents: in my most recent capacity under President Trump, as well as in my former position of National Intelligence Officer for Russia and Eurasia under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. In that role, I was the Intelligence Community’s senior expert on Russia and the former Soviet republics, including Ukraine. It was because of my background and experience that I was asked to join the National Security Council in 2017. At the NSC, Russia was a part of my portfolio, but I was also responsible for coordinating U.S. policy for all of Western Europe, all of Eastern Europe (including Ukraine) and Turkey, along with NATO and the European Union.
Based on questions and statements I have heard, some of you on this committee appear to believe that Russia and its security services did not conduct a campaign against our country—and that perhaps, somehow, for some reason, Ukraine did. This is a fictional narrative that has been perpetrated and propagated by the Russian security services themselves. The unfortunate truth is that Russia was the foreign power that systematically attacked our democratic institutions in 2016. This is the public conclusion of our intelligence agencies, confirmed in bipartisan Congressional reports. It is beyond dispute, even if some of the underlying details must remain classified.
The impact of the successful 2016 Russian campaign remains evident today. Our nation is being torn apart. Truth is questioned. Our highly professional and expert career foreign service is being undermined. The Russian government’s goal is to weaken our country—to diminish America’s global role and to neutralize a perceived U.S. threat to Russian interests. President Putin and the Russian security services aim to counter U.S. foreign policy objectives in Europe, including in Ukraine, where Moscow wishes to reassert political and economic dominance. Right now, Russia’s security services and their proxies have geared up to repeat their interference in the 2020 election. We are running out of time to stop them.
In the course of this investigation, I would ask that you please not promote politically driven falsehoods that so clearly advance Russian interests. As Republicans and Democrats have agreed for decades, Ukraine is a valued partner of the United States, and it plays an important role in our national security. And as I told this Committee last month, I refuse to be part of an effort to legitimize an alternate narrative that the Ukrainian government is a U.S. adversary, and that Ukraine—not Russia—attacked us in 2016.
These fictions are harmful even if they are deployed for purely domestic political purposes. President Putin and the Russian security services operate like a Super PAC. They deploy millions of dollars to weaponize our own political opposition research and false narratives. When we are consumed by partisan rancor, we cannot combat these external forces as they seek to divide us against each another, degrade our institutions, and destroy the faith of the American people in our democracy.
I respect the work that this Congress does in carrying out its constitutional responsibilities, including in this inquiry, and I am here to help you to the best of my ability. If the President, or anyone else, impedes or subverts the national security of the United States in order to further domestic political or personal interests, that is more than worthy of your attention. But we must not let domestic politics stop us from defending ourselves against the foreign powers who truly wish us harm."
Another American patriot. BRAVO Dr. Hill. Trump must not be permitted to continue impeding or subverting US national security.
November 20: Putin is proud of his boy Trump and fake Republicans praising, encouraging and clearing the way for more election interference for Trump and assault on America. Russian President Vladimir Putin is literally saying "thank God" that eyes aren't on him anymore. "No one is accusing us of interfering in the U.S. elections anymore," he said at a Wednesday economic forum in Moscow, per NBC News. "Now they're accusing Ukraine." He wants so much for Trump to stay in place and for the US to serve Russia.
November 20: Through his corrupt Attorney General, William Barr, Trump will claim that 2016 election interference was not perpetrated by Russia but by the US government. Trash US national security at all costs.
November 20: “You know what these proceedings look to me like right now? They look like the Kavanaugh hearing without the vagina hats,” fake Republican John Kennedy said. This is how fake Republicans see victims of sexual assault.
November 20: Finally, fake Republican leader in the impeachment hearing, Rep. Devin Nunes, said something true. Trump is a monarch. Too bad for fake Republicans that the United States severed from monarchs 250 years ago.
November 20: From Gordon Sodland, US Ambassador to EU: "Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the President of the United States. We did not want to work with Mr. Giuliani. Simply put, we played the hand we were dealt. We all understood that if we refused to work with Mr. Giuliani, we would lose an important opportunity to cement relations between the United States and Ukraine. So we followed the President’s orders. Decisionmakers at the National Security Council and State Department knew the important details of our efforts. The suggestion that we were engaged in some irregular or rogue diplomacy is absolutely false. I have now identified certain State Department emails and messages that provide contemporaneous support for my view. These emails show that the leadership of State, NSC, and the White House were all informed about the Ukraine efforts from May 23, 2019, until the security aid was released on September 11, 2019. As I testified previously, Mr. Giuliani’s requests were a quid pro quo for arranging a White House visit for President Zelensky. Mr. Giuliani demanded that Ukraine make a public statement announcing investigations of the 2016 election/DNC server and Burisma. Mr. Giuliani was expressing the desires of the President of the United States, and we knew that these investigations were important to the President. I was adamantly opposed to any suspension of aid, as the Ukrainians needed those funds to fight against Russian aggression. I tried diligently to ask why the aid was suspended, but I never received a clear answer. In the absence of any credible explanation for the suspension of aid, I later came to believe that the resumption of security aid would not occur until there was a public statement from Ukraine committing to the investigations of the 2016 election and Burisma, as Mr. Giuliani had demanded. I shared concerns of the potential quid pro quo regarding the security aid with Senator Ron Johnson. And I also shared my concerns with the Ukrainians."
"He had to announce the investigations, he didn’t actually have to do them as I understood it," Sondland said of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Sondland cited his own conversations with Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer who was pressing for the investigations, in reaching his conclusion. "I never heard ... anyone say that the investigations had to start or had to be completed," Sondland told the Democratic counsel of the House Intelligence Committee. "The only thing I heard from Mr. Giuliani or otherwise is they had to be announced in some form" publicly.
Horrific. The president of the United States, not only placed into office by Russia and election fraud, abhors American patriotism.
Purple Heart recipient for being injured in Iraq by an IED, Trump and his fake Republicans attack Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman as a spy to be subjected to hanging or firing squad.
About Vindman, Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Joseph Dunford, said, "He is a professional, competent, patriotic, and loyal officer. He has made an extraordinary contribution to the security of our Nation in both peacetime & combat."
November 19: According to the Wall Street Journal Trump's threat against the life of Lt. Col. Vindman is so extreme that the Penatagon has prepared to protect his family's life on a military base. Vindman is testifying today in the impeachment hearing in congress. Vindman was on the July 25 call between Trump and Ukraine president Zalensky, during which Trump threatened Ukraine. Trump thrives on threats.
Vindman testified that he knew he was taking risks telling the truth, though because this is the United States and not Russia, he believes he will not be killed as he would be in Russia. When Representative Murphy asked why Vindman felt like his dad didn't need to worry, Vindman replied "Because this is America. This is the country I've served and defended...Here, right matters." The hearing broke out in applause for this brave American testifying against a corrupt president.
How Vindman ended his prepared remarks. "Next month will mark 40 years since my family arrived in the United States as refugees. When my father was 47 years old he left behind his entire life and the only home he had ever known to start over in the United States so that his three sons could have better, safer lives. His courageous decision inspired a deep sense of gratitude in my brothers and myself and instilled in us a sense of duty and service. All three of us have served or are currently serving in the military. Our collective military service is a special part of our family's story in America. I also recognize that my simple act of appearing here today, just like the courage of my colleagues who have also truthfully testified before this Committee, would not be tolerated in many places around the world. In Russia, my act of expressing my concerns to the chain of command in an official and private channel would have severe personal and professional repercussions and offering public testimony involving the President would surely cost me my life. I am grateful for my father's brave act of hope 40 years ago and for the privilege of being an American citizen and public servant, where I can live free of fear for mine and my family's safety. Dad, my sitting here today, in the US Capitol talking to our elected officials is proof that you made the right decision forty years ago to leave the Soviet Union and come here to United State of America in search of a better life for our family. Do not worry, I will be fine for telling the truth."
Crybaby Trump is so weak he cannot even get his corrupt Attorney General or fake Republicans in Congress to investigate Joe and Hunter Biden. So, Trump tried trading $400 million of US taxpayer money for Ukraine to investigate the Bidens.
It's notable that Trump and his fake Republicans, who will not stand up for America, smear and slander those who do, including those who risk their life, wounded or killed in battle FOR America. Americans do not hide behind fake bone spurs.
Innocent people do not lie, threaten, degrade, obstruct justice, obstruce congress, intimidate witnesses, sexually assault, steal, prefer dictators, violate law and the Constitution, and undermine national security and American values.
November 16: Did Trump have (another) small stroke today? Although there is a medical team with a physician(s) and nurses, in the White House 24/7, Trump was secretly rushed to Walter Reed Hospital. His annual physical exam occurs next February. Samples for lab tests and electorcardiograms can easily happen in the White House. Several times over the past few years, Trump displayed signs of cerebral ischemia, slurring his words excessively as if he was drunk.
Hillary Clinton had a cold and Trump was fitting her for a coffin. He's rushed to the hospital after a history of cerebral ischemia but he has nothing to say.
November 15: Trump pardoned three people for war crimes, thanking them for their service.
November 15: Rudy Giuliani bragged that he is not worried that Trump will throw him under the bus. Rudy says he has "life insurance." Notes, pictures and audio and video recording of Trump's crimes.
November 15: Another enemy of the US was convicted today, another Trump co-conspirator, Roger Stone...a conduit between Trump and Russia for Democrat emails stolen by Russia in order for Trump to illicitly win the 2016 election. Collusion and obstruction of justice...and an illicit US president. No wonder Trump attacks America so often and in multiple ways.
November 15: Fox News' Brett Baier noted that Trump added another article for impeachment by attacking Ambassador Marie Yononovich, trying to degrade her like he has done so often with women and patriots.
November 15: An American patriot testified before congress, Ambassador Marie Yovonovich....fired by Trump for fighting pro-Putin corruption in Ukraine. "Unfortunately, as the past couple of months have underlined, not all Ukrainians embraced our anti-corruption work. Thus, perhaps, it was not surprising, that when our anti-corruption efforts got in the way of a desire for profit or power, Ukrainians who preferred to play by the old, corrupt rules sought to remove me. What continues to amaze me is that they found Americans willing to partner with them and, working together, they apparently succeeded in orchestrating the removal of a U.S. Ambassador. How could our system fail like this? How is it that foreign corrupt interests could manipulate our government? Which country's interests are served when the very corrupt behavior we have been criticizing is allowed to prevail? Such conduct undermines the U.S., exposes our friends, and widens the playing field for autocrats like President Putin. Our leadership depends on the power of our example and the consistency of our purpose. Both have now been opened to question."
Those corrupt Americans who conspired against the US included Trump and Giuliani. During her testimony, Trump attacked her again to threaten her to shut up. Concerned about her life, Ambassador Yovonovich testified anyway.
Thus, during live testimony, Trump adds another reason Trump must be removed from office for the sake of America.
Presidents Andrew Johnson and William Clinton were impeached but not convicted in the Senate. Nixon resigned before impeachment. Trump is about to become the third president impeached and the first for extorting a foreign country to get him elected and aiding Russia to invade that country (assistance given because Russia enabled Trumps 2016 election).
November 13: TODAY, Trump's formal impeachment hearing begins. Better keep him out of the the White House China room. His vast array of crimes against the US vastly exceed those of Richard Nixon, including using taxpayer money to conspire with foreign countries to win election.
What is Trump doing today other than exploding on Twitter? Hosting Turkey's dictator to congratulate his invasion of Syria, release of ISIS terrorists and war crimes against Kurd civilians.....and plot more business ties between Trump and Turkey.
TODAY, we watch Trump and his fake Rupublicans in Congress battle the US Constitution, American patriots, US national security and truth. In 2014, Russia invaded Ukraine. 14,000 Ukranians have since died fighting Russia (Trump's ally against the US). Ukraine was and is vulnerable to Russia. In 2018, Congress approved hundreds of millions of dollars to aid Ukraine against Russia. Trump used this support to extort Ukraine, bribing Ukraine to first invent false information to interfere with the 2020 US election (Trump needs illicit support from foreign countries in order to win elections). Beginning January 2019, Trump directed Rudy Giuliani to gain Ukraine's illicit election interference for Trump and Vladimir Putin. Trump and his fake Republicans in Congress side with Russia to attack US national security and its strategy with Ukraine to augment US national security.
Ukraine is on the front line against Russia's military agression. For 5 years, Ukraine citizens and soldiers have faught and died in defending Ukraine from Russia. In 2014, Russia shot down a civilian airliner over Ukraine, killing all aboard. Trump despises Ukraine for standing against Russia and endorses both Russia's invasion and mass murder as well as Russia's ongoing interference in US elections for Trump.
BOMBSHELL UPDATE: Gordon Sondland, Trump's Amassador to the EU and $1 million campaign contributor and having numerous phone calls with Trump, concluded, after the following phone call with Trump, that Trump cared only about Ukraine investigation into Biden but nothing about Ukraine or US national security. Trump told Sondland in a Ukraine restaurant July 26 over the phone loud enough for others to hear Trump asking about Ukraine's investigation into Biden, a critical subject of the the 'transcript' Trump released in September of his July 25 shakedown phone call with the president of Ukraine.
Fake Republicans sound like Russian officials who deny Russia's invasion of Ukraine, killing Ukrainians and shooting down a civilian airliner over Ukraine. Russia's and fake Republicans' denials are, as usual, opposite to the truth.
Bottom line for the day. Trump sided with Putin against Ukraine and did not want to deliver hundreds of millions of dollars approved by congress for Ukraine to defend itself from Russia's invasion and killing Ukranians. Election of a new president in Ukraine, having litttle experience as a young comedian before election, gave Trump a chance to convince Ukraine to corruptly interfere with the 2020 US election by SAYING Ukraine would investigate candidate Joe Biden. As the conspiracy, deployed by Rudy Giuliani, unraveled in September, Trump was forced to do what he did not want to do, release US military aid to Ukraine.
November 12: In the past year, Trump has jailed 70,000 children. Some have been raped. Some have died. This is Trump's version of America.
November 12: Trump invites dictators. "When I meet with the leaders of countries as they come in — kings, and queens and prime ministers, and presidents and dictators — I meet them all. Anybody wants to come in. Dictators, it’s OK. Come on in." He looks forward to hosting Turkey's dictator. Will he order his goons to physically assault American citizens again in Washington, DC?
November 12: Trump is being blackmailed. Putin's blackmail is legendary. Now, John Bolton and Mick Mulvaney are blackmailing Trump. Bolton announced he has much to say that would get Trump impeached, adding a morsel today that Trump's approval for Turkey to invade Syria and kill scores of Kurd civilians was due to financial encentives from Turkey to Trump. Mulvaney announced that he "knows too much" to get fired by Trump. And so it goes, a White House built on crime.
November 11: Trump fumes at judges who prevent his crimes. “Can we just get rid of the judges? Let’s get rid of the fucking judges. There shouldn’t be any at all, really.”
November 11: Trump UN Ambassador Nicki Haley published in her book that fear of Trump's danger to the US included came from his top advisors, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Chief of Staff John Kelley. Kelley even told Trump he would be impeached.
November 8: But of course. Trump announced that, to aid his re-election, he plans to visit, in Russia May 2020, the man in Russia that made him president, Vladimir Putin. Trump does nothing big without calling his benefactor, his life line.
Trump must thank Putin in person again without translators and notetakers....and collaborate against US national security, intereference in the 2020 election and enhancing Russia's power and influence.
November 7: Trump, boasting he would never do such a thing, settled a lawsuit showing that money he raised for veterans were money-laundered for his election campaign, never actually meant for veterans. For his fraud, Trump is paying $2 million.
November 7: Trump Jr. bragged that his father allowed him as a young boy to hang out with a serial pedophile, Michael Jackson. About same time Trump was boasting about his young daughter's body and his desire for dating her.
October 31: The US Constitution was ratified 232 years ago. Only 4 presidents have been subjected to impeachment proceedings (Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon, William Clinton, Donald Trump). The last, before today, was Bill Clinton, impeached for having an extramarital affair. Republicans at that time were outraged with lying, any hint of refusal to answer subpoenas and document requests of congress. They claimed that Clinton's affair endangered US national security. Today, we have fake Republicans who endorse Trump's lies, obstruction of justice, abuse of power, violations of the US Constitution and his oath of office, extreme racism and white supremacy, conspiring with an illicit shadow government (managed by his corrupt lawyer, Rudy Giuliani), cover-up of crimes, and bribing/ extorting foreign governments, US Senators, the Dept of Justice and others to get elected. To today's fake Republicans, the president can do nothing worthy of impeachment, even murdering people. They claim that Trump's transgressions do not endanger US national security, over the objections of the military, CIA, FBI, a thousand US attorneys, dozens of military admirals and generals, the official US national security apparatus and more. Nevertheless, impeachment proceedings again Trump formally commenced today.
More jury tampering by Trump...now bribing with illicit campaign funds US Senators who will defy the US Constitution, history, common sense and a federal judge and falsely claim that his impeachment process is bogus. Fact...it is real, legitimate and compelled by his high crimes.
October 28: Trump greeted with thunderous boos at Game 5 of World Series, fans chant 'lock him up'.
October 27: While Trump despises the Kurds, the CIA and US generals, they are still working for the US. An overnight raid resulted in the death of the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Bravo to the Kurds, CIA and US generals...and of course US soldiers.
Iraqi intelligence provided ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi's location. An Iraqi intelligence official told the news service that agents discovered documents at a secret location in the western deserts of Iraq that identified Baghdadi’s location after arresting an Iraqi man and woman believed to be close to the ISIS leader. “We have been constantly coordinating with the CIA, providing valuable information that the Iraqi National Intelligence Service has on Baghdadi’s movements and place of hiding,” the official said. “This cooperation was successful and achieved the ultimate goal of killing Baghdadi.”
So untrustworthy, US national intelligence did not inform Trump until 3 days before the operation. The US knew of Baghdadi's location more than 2 weeks ago, contributing to US national security agencies strongly opposing Trump's order for US troops to leave Syria. Fortunately, US commanders slow walked Trump's order.
Trump trusted Russia with advance notice of the raid, but not Congress. No one in Congress or any federal agency was notified.
In Trumpian style, Trump boasted, falsely as usual, this death was bigger than Osama bin Laden. ISIS killed no one in the US. Osama bin Laden killed 3,000 in the US, attacking the two major World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon. A third plane headed with for the White House or the Capitol was taken down by patriot passengers before this mission could be carried out. ISIS carried out NO attack in the US.
Trump was grotesque, again. “It was absolutely perfect, as though you were watching a movie,” Trump gloated. Trump watched the last few minutes of Baghdadi's life like it was a scummy snuff movie, absorbing sick Freudian sexual gratification from what Trump narrated as Baghdadi's final scene where, chased by dogs to the end of a dead-end tunnel, he explodes himself. Baghdadi “died like a dog,” Trump said repeatedly. “He died like a dog, he died like a coward. He died whimpering, screaming and crying, he was scared out of his mind and, frankly, I think it’s something that should be brought out ... they should see how he died. He didn’t die a hero, he died a coward, crying, whimpering, screaming, and bringing three kids with him to die. Certain death.” Trump told the press “there wasn’t much left” of Baghdadi, but there were “substantial pieces they brought back.” The head may be among them to present a trophy to Trump, maybe display it in front of the White House. Trump will probably leak to the media photos and video clips for his gladiator fans and to distract from his impeachment.
Trump is joyous over 'his' killing of a whimpering, screaming, crying coward. (Baghdadi killed himself)
Trump boasted he knows how to use the Internet better than ISIS and he has been looking for Baghdadi for 3 years. So lucky we are, safer we feel.
October 26: Steve Bannon, a Trump campaign director and a Chief Advisor in the White House, predicted that Trump will be impeached for bribery/extortion of Ukraine and obstruction of justice.
October 26: An early White Houe Chief of Staff, General John Kelly, announced that Trump would not be able to control his urges to commit crimes in office without a strong Chief of Staff and predicted Trump's impeachment. Notably, Trump's current chief of staff announced that Trump committed impeachable acts with Ukraine. The White House response: Kelly could not comprehend Trump's (criminal) genius.
October 26: RETIRED GENERALS AND ADMIRALS: WE CALL ON TRUMP TO START LIVING UP TO THE VALUES OF U.S. ARMED FORCES. We write today to call on you to embrace the values of the men and women who serve you in our armed forces. We knowingly break the culture of public silence expected of retired Generals and Admirals to urge you to exert national and global leadership to stem and reverse the rapidly receding tides of American moral authority. Today, we are confronted by a growing gap between the values of those who serve our Nation in uniform, and those for whom they willingly execute lawful orders. We fear it is widening to possible fracture. Even as we are concerned, however, we remain optimistic: we know that the situation can be reversed quickly if the values that have served us so well are embedded in the process of making decisions of consequence for our service members. Nowhere is this gap felt more immediately today than in Northern Syria, where U.S. forces are in the process of withdrawing from the area despite the violent consequences the decision will have on our Kurdish partners. While withdrawing ground forces from Syria may be a noble goal, doing so at the cost of abandoning our Kurdish partners, who valiantly fought alongside us to combat ISIS, is not consistent with who we are as a military force. The potential release of thousands of ISIS fighters, enabling their migration to the nations that make up the heart of our NATO alliance, is not consistent with who we are as a military force. When we are forced to turn our backs on our own loyalty, commitment, integrity, honor and trust, our challenges become far more daunting. Allies and partners who have served, bled and died by our side will turn their backs on us. Such a development is not in the national security interest of the United States. And as Commander-in-Chief, you have the utmost responsibility to ensure it doesn't happen.

Thousands of leadership patriots have pleaded with Trump to stop degrading America.
October 26: Trump enjoys spending millions of dollars of taxpayer funding on his family. The latest.....$33 million to his brother. With Trump's stock market manipulations and deals with foreign governments, expecially those hostile to the US, Trump has raked in billions the past 2.5 years.
Trump also enjoys penalizing his enemies. The latest example, removing Amazon from a $10 billion award, steering it to Microsoft instead.
Trump wants us believe that he, the most omniscient greatest memory genius ever, is the reincarnation of Saddam Hussein. Hussein refused inspections of Iraq, claiming that he had no weapons of mass destruction, but suffered war with the US. Trump is trying the same strategy, refusing inspections by ordering his staff not to testify or turn over documents. And, like Hussein, Trump is in war with the US.
October 25: Trump intensified his corruption of the Dept. of Justice, enlisting Attorney General William Barr to elevate Trump's bogus Barr investigation of the CIA/FBI to a criminal investigation. Trump and Barr intend to imprison CIA officers and FBI agents who protect US national security in order to deflect Trump's abuse of power extorting foreign governments to assist Trump's re-election.
October 23: Trump announced that he is building a wall in Colorado to stop invasion from Mexico. Um, Colorado over one thousand miles from the border with Mexico. Invaders would have to go through Texas, New Mexico and Wyoming before reaching Trump's wall.
October 23: Trump calls his top official in Ukraine human scum. William Taylor biography: West Point graduate, Vietnam Vet, a Commander, Bronze Star, Director of Emergency Preparedness Policy, Senator legislative assistant, director of defense dept. think tank, Special Deputy Defense Advisor to the U.S. Ambassador to NATO, ambassador coordinating eastern Europe and Soviet Union, coordinated US and international assistance for Afghanistan, Director of the Iraq Reconstruction Management Office in Baghdad, U.S. Government's representative to the Quartet's effort to facilitate the Israeli disengagement from Gaza and parts of the West Bank, US Ambassador to Ukraine, Special Coordinator for Middle East Transitions, executive vice president of the United States Institute of Peace and chargé d'affaires for Ukraine. 50 years of service to the US. Trump says he is scum maybe because he never had fake bone spurs like Trump.
Yesterday, Taylor provided stunning proof of Trump's Ukraine crimes.
October 23: A Trump lawyer told the DC Circuit Court of Appeals that Trump could kill someone with a gun and NOT be prosecuted, permitting him to get away even with murder.
October 23: Trump approved of Turkey's warcrimes against the Kurds and killing of hundreds of Kurds, mostly civilians over the past week and so, Trump removed his sanctions against Turkey. And, Trump announced that Turkey is in charge of fighting ISIS, the US is no longer involved, and that let those in the mideast kill each other, the US is no longer involved in mitigating mideast violence.
Trump officially determined that Turkey's ceasefire is permanent and that the Kurds are 100% happy.
To Trump, the color of Barrack Obama's skin made him a fake American.
October 22: Trump officially surrendered US military basis in north Syria to Russia. US troops escaped to Iraq, where they have been told to get out. Trump has made the US a loser, a pattern he accomplished in his own life.
October 22: Could anyone calling themselves an American be so despicable. Trump, the world's most notorious racist, who claims to be the best, most powerful, richest, most privileged, smartest, most successful, most promoted person in the world announced that impeachment proceedings against his crimes, treason and violation of his oath of office, is "a lynching." Trump expects his followers to positively view him as a tortured slave killed by lynching, ie tightening a rope noose around his neck, ridiculed, demeaned and hanged until death from suffocation and a broken neck, and then further desecration of his dead body.
October 21: The US Constitution is a hallowed document. Essentially, the existence of the US depends on it. Nevertheless, Trump, who violates the Constitution daily, focused on Article 1, saying that it contains a phony prohibition, the Emoluments clause, rationalizing his repeated violation of it.
"No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State."
October 21: Trump's most effective diversion is 'projection', blaming other's for having his traits. Example, the 'deep state', Trump's projection for the 'Trump state', wherein he has converted the federal government into his political operation, most readily visible with the State Dept. and the Dept. of Justice, which are laundering billions of dollars of taxpayer funding into Trump political spending to cover up his crimes and to get re-elected. Trump's Ukraine debacle is simply one example, trading $400 billion of taxpayer funding for fictional political information from Ukraine. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Attorney General Bill Barr are crafting fictional revelations to fuel the hate of Trump's base in order for Trump to be re-elected. Trump lies fill in any gaps in Trump projection.
An example of Trump fiction....the DNC server stored in Ukraine. There is no such server, there never was any such server. True, the DNC had compter servers, more than one hundred of them, all of which were copied by the Dept. of Justice....copied in a way far more valuable than having the actual computers years after the fact (eg, when computers are turned off, much of their information is flushed away (information in computer memory), leaving behind only information saved on hard drives. And, the DNC computers have continued to be used, and thus old data has been overwritten by new data. Using the full original data, the entire US intelligence community determined that Russia hacked DNC computers on behalf of Trump, not Ukraine on behalf of Hillary Clinton as Trump claims. By the way, Trump still has not told us where his fictional DNC server is....inside a barn, in a cave, in a bank safety deposit box, in a grave, in a future Trump Tower? Why can no one see it? Where 'it' resides is in Trump BS.
October 21: “...The Kurds carved out their own little enclave. It was peaceful, it was generally egalitarian, it was feminist, it was a unique thing. Men and women fighting together, co-ruling together. They had hopes that this was going to last.” (Richard Engel)
Trump claims the Kurds are happy being executed, subjected to genocide and ethnic cleansing, and women being pulled from cars while escaping for their lives but instead shot in the head at the side of the road. Of the 2 million Kurds in northern Syria, hundreds have already been killed and hundreds of thousands have been forced out as stage one of Trump's ethnic cleansing.
Trump betrays all of us.
October 20: Last week, the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, its 3 judge panel, ruled that Trump's accounting firm MUST turn over 8 years of income tax and accounting records for Donald J. Trump, affirming the constitutional investigatory power of the US House of Representatives (2 of the 3 judges ruled to turn over the documents, 1 judge dissented, writing that the House must initiate impeachment proceedings first, which subsequently occurred). The DC Circuit interprets the power of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Election Commission, the Federal Communications Commission and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. "Whatever combination of letters you can put together," Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, who came from the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, said in a 2005 lecture reprinted in the Virginia Law Review, "it is likely that jurisdiction to review that agency's decision is vested in the D.C. Circuit." Trump's lawyers have the option of asking the full DC Circuit for an "en banc" hearing or directly appealing to the Supreme Court. The DC Circuit rarely grants such en banc hearings, but if one was sought and granted, Trump's lawyers would make their case to all 11 judges in a dramatic session. The Chief Judge of this court since 2013 is Merritt Garland, who was nominated to the Supreme Court by Barrack Obama but illicitly prevented from the post by Sen. Mitch McConnell.
October 20: Fox's Chris Wallace said a "well-connected" Washington Republican told him that there's a 20 percent chance enough Republicans will vote to remove the president from office in an impeachment trial in the Senate.
October 20: Always enjoying deportation, Trump deported a 38-year-old US marine who served 2 tours of duty in Iraq but who left El Salvador when he was 3.
October 20: Hamilton pushed for impeachment powers. Trump is what he had in mind. He wanted a strong president — and a way to get rid of the demagogic ones. There seems little doubt, given his writings on the presidency, that Hamilton would have been aghast at Trump’s behavior and appalled by his invitation to foreign actors to meddle in our elections. As a result, he would most certainly have endorsed the current impeachment inquiry. It’s not an exaggeration to say that Trump embodies Hamilton’s worst fears about the kind of person who might someday head the government. From the outset, Hamilton feared an unholy trinity of traits in a future president — ambition, avarice and vanity. “When avarice takes the lead in a State, it is commonly the forerunner of its fall,” he wrote as early as the Revolutionary War. He dreaded most the advent of a populist demagogue who would profess friendship for the people and pander to their prejudices while secretly betraying them. Such a false prophet would foment political frenzy and try to feed off the confusion. Throughout history, despots have tended to be silent, crafty and secretive. Hamilton was more concerned with noisy, flamboyant figures, who would throw dust in voters’ eyes and veil their sinister designs behind it. These connoisseurs of chaos would employ a constant barrage of verbiage to cloud issues and blur moral lines. Such hobgoblins of Hamilton’s imagination bear an eerie resemblance to the current occupant of the White House, with his tweets, double talk and inflammatory rhetoric at rallies. Given the way Trump has broadcast suspicions about the CIA, the FBI, the diplomatic corps, senior civil servants and the “deep state,” Hamilton’s warning about those who would seek to discredit the government as prelude to a possible autocracy seems prophetic. Throughout his “Federalist” essays, Hamilton foresaw impeachment as a possible two-step process and noted multiple times that after removal from office, an impeached president would “be liable to prosecution and punishment in the ordinary course of law.” He was adamant that the Senate should hold a trial, with the chief justice presiding, and pointed out that other Supreme Court justices should be excluded in case the ousted president then became a defendant for his misdeeds in the regular court system. (Ron Chernow)
Someday, even most Trump supporters will realize what the rest of the world knows, Trump has betrayed us to serve his businesses, his loyalty to dictators and his racism.
October 20: Russian Media Cheers Trump’s Moves in Syria: ‘Putin Won the Lottery!’ For Russia, Trump’s presidency is a gift that keeps on giving. The Kremlin’s propagandists see no acceptable alternative among any viable presidential candidates in 2020. “You know, I’ve been watching Trump’s behavior lately and get seditious thoughts: maybe he really is a Russian agent?” — Maksim Yusin, the editor of international politics at the Russian business daily Kommersant. Pundits all over the Russian state media pondered out loud about the merits of Trump’s self-proclaimed “infinite wisdom” of pulling the U.S. forces out of northern and eastern Syria, concluding that the decision was an enormous blow to America’s standing, undermining its current and potential alliances. Political analyst Mikhail Sinelnikov-Orishak was overcome with gratitude: “I look at Trump and think: ‘May God grant him good health—and another term. This is a great situation for Russia...We can practically sit back and reap the dividends from what others are doing...Meanwhile, Trump is yet to make a single good deal, which is why I wish him good health, may he flourish and get re-elected...Trump is a great candidate. I applaud him...For America, this isn’t a very good president.” (Julia Davis is a featured expert on Russian propaganda with the Atlantic Council's Disinformation Portal and the creator of the Russian Media Monitor.)
October 19: "US officials tell me ALARM BELL RINGING among diplomats in DC that U.S. could one day be held responsible for Crimes Against Humanity for ethnic cleansing of Syrian Kurds by opening the door to it, watching it, encouraging it (Trump's tweets and statements) and not stopping it." (Richard Engel)
According to Trump, everyone but him was, is or will be a disaster. Another projection.
October 18: Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich said President Donald Trump should be impeached, a major switch for a former Republican presidential candidate who had previously said there was not enough evidence to impeach the President. Kasich told CNN's Ana Cabrera Friday the "final straw" for him was White House acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney's Thursday admission that military aid was withheld from Ukraine in order to pressure that country for investigations into Democrats. "But if you are asking me if I was sitting in the House of Representatives today and you were to ask me how do I feel, do I think impeachment should move forward and should go for a full examination and a trial in the United States Senate, my vote would be yes."
Before Trump, the military and other national security professionals were respected. Trump is making them weak and distrusted. And, Trump has turned the Dept. of State over to Rudy Giuliani, bypassing congressional oversight, laws and ethics.
October 18: Contradicting Trump's lies about Hillary Clinton, HIS State Dept announced, after years of study, "there was no persuasive evidence of systemic, deliberate mishandling of classified information." Trump's State Dept. analyzed 33,000 emails, coincidentally the same number that Trump says are missing. Why not simply contact HIS State Dept? You, in effect, already have all 33,000.
October 18: To be clear, Trump is violating the US Constitution to hold the G-7 Summit at his golf resort in Miami. Taxpayers will pay for tens of millions to prepare the site for Trump's benefit. Far worse, Trump will bill at least 6 goverments to use his resort, effectively forcing them to aid his violation of the Constitution and his oath to uphold the Constitution. Trump's will benefit millions of dollars of repairs, updates, advertising and rent.
Update: Facing yet another cause for removal from office, Trump cancelled his plan to bolster his golf resort business and will 'host' the G-7 Summit elsewhere.
October 18: Lie #14,000. Yesterday, Trump boasted that he gave an amazing gift to civilization: a cease fire in Trump's Turkey invasion into Syria to exterminate the US ally that lost 11,000 lives in the fight against ISIS, the Kurds. The gift: a ceasefire. The fact: a lie. There was no ceasefire, there was no pause. Turkey continues aircraft and artillary attacks against the Kurds while it sends reinforcements into Syria to exterminate the Kurds.
So eggregious, even Sen. Mitch McConnell opposed Trump, "Withdrawing U.S. forces from Syria is a grave strategic mistake. It will leave the American people and homeland less safe, embolden our enemies, and weaken important alliances. Lesson No. 1 is that the threat is real and cannot be wished away. These fanatics threaten American interests and American lives. If permitted to regroup and establish havens, they will bring terror to our shores. Second, there is no substitute for American leadership. No other nation can match our capability to spearhead multinational campaigns that can defeat terrorists and help stabilize the region. The third lesson is that we are not in this fight alone. In recent years, the campaigns against the Islamic State and the Taliban, in Iraq or Syria or Afghanistan, have been waged primarily by local forces. The United States has mainly contributed limited, specialized capabilities that enable our local partners to succeed. Ironically, Syria had been a model for this increasingly successful approach. The combination of a U.S. pullback and the escalating Turkish-Kurdish hostilities is creating a strategic nightmare for our country. Unless halted, our retreat will invite the brutal Assad regime in Syria and its Iranian backers to expand their influence. And we are ignoring Russia’s efforts to leverage its increasingly dominant position in Syria to amass power and influence throughout the Middle East and beyond. America’s wars will be “endless” only if America refuses to win them."
Former CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus told NPR's Michel Martin that he agrees with McConnell's strongly-worded assessment. Petraeus, the former commander of Central Command in charge of U.S. forces in the Middle East, said the policy was unfair to Kurdish fighters who had been key U.S. allies in the fight against ISIS. "The Kurds always used to say ... that [they] have no friends but the mountains, and I would reassure them," Petraeus said. "I would say, 'Americans are your friends.' ... And sadly, this is arguably a betrayal."
October 18: Trump is turning American ideology into a sham. Americans are starting to see the full, global implications of having a president who is ignorant of history, driven by impulse, immune to advice and dead to the romance of American ideals. This set of urges and instincts is leaving its mark on U.S. influence. Trump’s bumbling retreat from alliances, from responsibility and from basic sanity has sown discord in Europe and has created new playgrounds for Russian meddling. It has also left a vacuum of influence in the Pacific that is being filled by China. The damage to U.S. interests is considerable and growing. Trump’s conception of “America First” not only serves Chinese and Russian interests; it is an attempt to reshape U.S. foreign policy on a Chinese or Russian model — devaluing democratic universalism in favor of raw nationalism. These are the real stakes of the debate on human rights. If the lives of Kurds and Chinese really mean nothing to the United States, then American ideology is a sham, and U.S. influence is correspondingly less justified. Trump’s amoral foreign policy is a source of shame — and a source of danger. (Michael Gerson)
October 18: ISIS eyes breakout opportunity as Turkish forces batter Kurds. The Islamic State is racing to capitalize on the deteriorating security situation in northern Syria, stepping up attacks on prisons as well as on the now-weakened Kurdish militia that served as the vanguard in the U.S.-led war against the group’s self-proclaimed caliphate, intelligence officials and terrorism experts say. The Islamic State’s official media arm taunted the SDF (Kurds) on Thursday, calling it an abandoned American ally and warning that further attacks were coming. An editorial in the Islamic State’s al-Naba newsletter said the Kurds were only the latest of Washington’s allies to be dumped after they were no longer needed. (Washington Post)
“Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official, save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country.” Theodore Roosevelt (1918)
October 17: "Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President. If President Trump doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office. If our promises are meaningless, how will our allies ever trust us? If we can’t have faith in our nation’s principles, why would the men and women of this nation join the military? And if they don’t join, who will protect us? If we are not the champions of the good and the right, then who will follow us? And if no one follows us — where will the world end up? And if this president doesn’t understand their importance, if this president doesn’t demonstrate the leadership that America needs, both domestically and abroad, then it is time for a new person in the Oval Office — Republican, Democrat or independent — the sooner, the better. The fate of our Republic depends upon it." (Admiral McRaven is a former commander of the United States Special Operations Command)
October 17: The White House confirmed that Trump withheld $400 million of congress-approved funding to Ukraine unless Ukraine would investigate Democrats, thus confirming a quid pro quo, trading US taxpayer funding for Trump's personal political benefit against Democrats.
The White House: "Get over it. There's going to be political influence in foreign policy....We do it all the time.
This is White House admission to bribery for a shakedown to benefit Trump and harm the US.
Interesting strategy. Admit on national TV that you’ve committed Impeachable offenses. I made a film, A Few Good Men, where a Marine Col. (Jack Nicholson) is asked in court by a Navy lawyer (Tom Cruise) if he broke the law. He said: "You’re God damn right I did!" Doesn’t work well. (Rob Reiner)
October 17: Trump betrayed the Kurds a second time in a week. First, he green-lighted the slaughter of the Kurds, who lost 11,000 and suffered 23,000 injured in fighting FOR THE US .... killing 60,000-100,000 ISIS terrorists and capturing 11,000. Today, Trump effectively handed over to Turkey much of where the Kurds have been living for 5 years in north Syria, forced the Kurds to leave what they considered their safe zone and further rewarded Turkey with a freeze in new sanctions against Syria and terminating all sanctions in 5 days. Today's losers: the Kurds, Syria and US. The winners: Turkey, Russia and Iran.
Turkey got what it wanted. The US and Kurds did not.
Trump claimed he saved the lives of millions of Kurds AFTER he approved their genocide last week.
"The ceasefire does not change the fact that America has abandoned an ally. Adding insult to dishonor, the administration speaks cavalierly, even flippantly, even as our ally has suffered death and casualty. Their homes have been burned, and their families have been torn apart. . . . This is a matter of American honor and promise. So too, is the principle that we stand by our allies, that we do not abandon our friends. The decision to abandon the Kurds violates one of our most sacred duties. It strikes at American honor. Iranian and Russian interests in the Middle East have been advanced by our decision. At a time when we are applying maximum pressure on Iran, by giving them a stronger hand in Syria, we’ve actually weakened that pressure. Russia’s objective to play a greater role in the Middle East has also been greatly enhanced. The Kurds, out of desperation, have now aligned with Assad. So America is diminished, Russia, Iran, and Assad are strengthened." (Mitt Romney)
"Erdogan wrote the art of dealing with Donald Trump. Just put his name on a couple of towers in Istanbul, launder some money with him, and he will let you kill anyone anywhere. It is all about $$$$." (John Dean)
October 17: Rewarding himself after his horrific video presented at his Doral golf club depicting him slaughtering several members of the media, Senators and Representatives and Rosy O'Donnell, the White House announced that the next G-7 summit will be at Trump's Doral golf course in Miami. (see video below, October 14) Climate change will NOT be on the agenda.
Advertising his property, Trump claims his property is the best property for the G-7 summit in the US. Um, what about its bed bugs?
According to Fox News' Judge Anthony Napolitano, "He (Trump)has bought himself an enormous headache now with the choice of this. This is about as direct and profound a violation of the Emoluments Clause as one could create." "There’s no issue here on him profiting from this in any way, shape or form," Mulvaney said. Napolitano responded, "It addresses any present, as in a gift, any emolument, as in cash, of any kind. The purpose of the Emoluments Clause is to keep the president of the United States of America from profiting off of foreign money," adding that the framers of the Constitution were not concerned about Mulvaney's argument. Napolitano dismissed Mulvaney's argument, saying that the Emoluments Clause does not "address profits." "That conversation manifested both criminal and impeachable behavior," Napolitano said.
Very interesting. Trump and his co-conspirators, who claim they are the smartest people in history, have a pattern. When faced with the truth, they first lie. Then, they call people names and blamed institutions of the US government, lying more. Then, they try changing the story. Then they project, calling out others for their crimes. Then, they lie more. Then, they throw their appointees and staff under the bus, firing them and scapegoating them. And, when all else fails, they claim ignorance. Then, they move onto their next criminal/moral/non-patriotic/treasonous scandal.
October 17: Trump published this picture, Speaker Nancy Pelosi noting yesterday that Trump's approval of genocide of the Kurds by Turkey, invasion of Syria by Turkey, handing over Syria to Russia and enabling a passageway for Iran to threaten Israel was abominable. Trump melted down, again, slurring Pelosi, the only woman at the table, calling her a "third grade politician." Trump now calls the Kurds, who lost 11,000 lives and incurred 22,000 injured in their fight FOR THE US against ISIS, enemies. Trump enabled the release of 11,000 ISIS fighters prisoned by the Kurds FOR THE US. Speaker Palosi stood to ask Trump, "Why do all roads lead to Putin?" Notice the military leadership to the right of Trump, hanging their heads in shame. We are all shamed by Trump.
Trump set up a war room against the US under the Oval Office to plan and manage his conspiracy.
For example, Trump's corrupt EU Ambassador, Godon Sondland, used the room to forge part of Trump's conspiracy. Sondland’s meeting with the Ukrainians just steps away from the White House Situation Room came minutes after a larger West Wing meeting that included then-National Security Adviser John Bolton, who had been noncommittal about scheduling a meeting between Trump and new Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Sondland directly contradicted Bolton by telling the Ukrainians that in fact, Trump was committed to meeting with Zelensky on the condition he open a corruption investigation. Bolton abruptly ended the meeting. But, the individuals say, Sondland then invited the Ukrainian officials to continue the conversation separately, escorting them to a private room in the White House basement, Trump's anti-US war room. Sondland’s explicit conditioning of a meeting between Zelenskiy and Trump prompted Bolton to direct then-Trump Russia adviser Fiona Hill to report the situation to White House lawyers.
October 16: Trump boasted that while DOD Secretary General James Mattis took 2 years to do so, Trump claimed that he captured all of ISIS in one month.
October 16: Trump announced that his approval of Turkey's invasion into Syria to execute the Kurds, kill and displace hundreds of thousands of Kurds, and release ISIS prisoners was "strategically brilliant" for the US. About the Kurds Trump announce that "They're not angels. They're not angels." He congratulated Russia and Syria on their 'gains' and is proud of his progress to remove the US from the region so that it can explode. He believes that the warring region will protect US national security.
Whatever is best for Russia is what Trump does.
Trump urging ISIS to return to Europe and renew terrorist attacks there.
And again, playing the idiot, Trump said that the Kurds are much safer now that they are being slaughtered.
October 16: Trump, the king of nepotism, attacks Joe Biden because his son Hunter has the same last name. Trump has installed his children as know-nothing Cabinet-level experts making far far more money than Hunter Biden has, and have gained trademarks, business ventures and more simply because a Trump 'runs' the White House.
Trump's most vociferous attacks are projections, ie wrongdoing he perpetrates.
Now that Trump has traded tens of billions of dollars worth, at least, of US national security in Syria to Russia, Turkey Syria and Iran, who will Trump trade for the 50 US nuclear weapons in Turkey?
October 15: “When I was deployed, I knew one of the things keeping me safe was the flag on my shoulder represented a country that kept its word. You take away the honor of our soldiers, you might as well go after their body armor next. This president has betrayed American values.” (Pete Buttigieg, a veteran)
"This president is caging kids at the border and letting ISIS terrorists run free." (Julian Castro)
October 15: “Pro-Kremlin proxy Vladimir Zhirinovskiy, leader of the nationalist Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, proclaimed just before the election that if President-elect Trump won, Russia would ‘drink champagne’ in anticipation of being able to advance its positions on Syria and Ukraine,” noted the U.S. intelligence community’s official assessment of Russian intervention in the presidential election. Vladimir Putin’s regime had developed a clear preference for Donald Trump, including and perhaps especially “his Russia-friendly positions on Syria and Ukraine.” It is exactly those two issues that are playing out at the forefront of American politics right now. Trump is facing impeachment over his campaign to withhold diplomatic recognition and military aid from Ukraine while working covertly in an alliance with pro-Russian political actors in that country. Meanwhile, Trump suddenly and impulsively engineered a U-turn in American policy toward Syria to the direct benefit of Russia and its regional proxies. (This assessment was published January 6, 2017)
October 15: Trump's scared retreat has handed over US military bases in Syria over to Russia, along with weapons, computers, tanks, armored vehicles etc. Even coolers of Coca Cola and candy bars. Anything for his benefactor, Vladimir Putin, at US taxpayer expense, thanks for election interference and his real estate deals in Russia, and paying Rudy Giuliani's expenses for Trump's conspiracy against America. For Trump, US is for sale.
Trump continues to be a traitor.
Trump has been defeated by Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria and ISIS. Sadly, the US is the real loser.
As of Oct. 9, his 993rd day in office, Trump had made 13,435 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement he has uttered. That’s an average of almost 22 claims a day since our last update 65 days ago.
Octobert 15: One of the ways Trump got Rudy Giuliani paid to co-conspire against the US is to funnel Russian money to Giuliani through one of the criminals arrested last week after meeting with Giuliani in a Trump DC restaurant and then trying to flee the US. 'Fraud Guarantee', Lev Parnas’s bogus company, paid Giuliani $500,000 August 2018. Undoubtedly, many more corrupt payments will be exposed by FBI investigation into Giuliani's business records and finances.
October 15: UNTIL NOW, it was possible to hope that the damage caused by President Trump’s terrible incompetence, ignorance and impulsivity in foreign policy was largely theoretical, and possibly reparable. That is no longer true. The cost of his latest Syria blunder is unfolding before our eyes: Innocent lives lost. U.S. servicemen and -women betrayed. Butchering dictators emboldened. Dangerous terrorists set free. A ghastly scene is playing out, and it almost surely will get worse. Mr. Trump — with no consideration, no warning, no consultation with allies, no regard for the other nations that have fought alongside the United States and risked their men and women in the fight — has turned tail. In the past two years, courageous U.S. troops cooperated with our Kurdish allies to defeat the deadly Islamic State caliphate. These allies lost more than 11,000 men and women killed; the United States, a dozen. It was a rare U.S. success in the Middle East. The president has thrown it all away. His surrender is so hasty that U.S. forces could not execute a long-standing plan to take dozens of high-profile Islamic State detainees with them; we can expect to hear from those terrorists before long, in the region, in Europe or in the United States. The Islamic State is likely to exert its malign force again. The allies who fought alongside us are being slaughtered, and noncombatant women and children, too. Iran is strengthened, which threatens Israel. The murderous Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad is strengthened, too. Russia is taking charge. America’s adversaries could not have scripted a better outcome. (Washington Post)
October 14: Trump fired John Bolton as national security advisor September 11, the day Trump released his extortion to Ukraine, hundreds of millions of US taxpayer dollars in exchange for election interference for Trump. Bolton was fired because he vehemently objected to Trump's deal, calling it a Trump "drug deal." Bolton told White House lawyers that Rudy Giuliani is "a hand grenade who's going to blow everyone up." Bolton instructed his aide, Fiona Hill, to notify the chief lawyer for the National Security Council that Rudy Giuliani was working with Mick Mulvaney on a rogue operation with legal implications, ie illegal. Trump and his 'personal' lawyers are corrupt and criminal (eg, Michael Cohen, now in prison, and Rudy Giuliani).
Fiona Hill testified to Congress today that she directly observed White House corruption over Ukraine, corroborating John Bolton's observation. Hill, the White House’s former top Russia adviser, told impeachment investigators on Monday that Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, ran a shadow foreign policy in Ukraine that circumvented U.S. officials and career diplomats in order to personally benefit Trump.
Ambassador to the EU Gordon Sondland intends to testify Thursday Trump told him in the Oval Office that Ukraine requests had to go through Giuliani & that Rudy wanted a written statement promising Biden probe.
October 14: Trump grins. Another white police officer murdered an African American woman in her home, killing her with one shot from outside into the home. She was doing nothing wrong. She was given about a second to raise her hands, assuming she even heard what the white officer said, whose car was parked down the street and who did not warn anyone that he was a police officer but gunned down the woman as a young child in her home watched in horror.
October 14: MOSCOW (AP) — From Syria to Ukraine, new fault lines and tensions are offering the Kremlin fresh opportunities to expand its clout and advance its interests. The U.S. military withdrawal from northern Syria before a Turkish offensive leaves Russia as the ultimate power broker, allowing it to help negotiate a potential agreement between Syrian President Bashar Assad and the Kurds who were abandoned by Washington. And in Ukraine, where the new president saw his image dented by a U.S. impeachment inquiry, Russia may use the volatility to push for a deal that would secure its leverage over its western neighbor. The Turkish offensive in northern Syria followed President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from the area, cold shouldering the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces, the key U.S. ally in the fight against the Islamic State group. Washington’s abrupt decision to ditch the Kurds contrasted sharply with Moscow’s unwavering support for its ally Assad, which helped his government reclaim the bulk of the country’s territory in a devastating civil war. “Russia wants to benefit from that operation, and one of the gains could be the strengthening of ties with Turkey,” said Kirill Semenov of the Russian International Affairs Council. “The harsh response from Washington, the EU reaction, the threat of sanctions against Turkey all play into Moscow’s hands by making Moscow and Ankara even closer.” In another power game, Russia hopes to see major gains in its long-running effort to retain leverage over its neighbor Ukraine, a former Soviet republic looking to align itself with the West. In 2014, Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula and threw its support behind a separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine following the ouster of Ukraine’s Moscow-friendly leader, moves that triggered bruising Western sanctions. “Russia is the main beneficiary of that situation,” Karasev said. “Putin no longer has to prove that Ukraine is dangerous and toxic — Ukrainian and U.S. politicians have done the job for him. The Kremlin now just needs to wait until the Ukrainian apple falls into its lap, as the U.S., Germany and France all have got their share of toxic Ukrainian gifts and got poisoned.”
October 14: Trump released a video, featuring his campaign logo, that depicts Trump shooting, stabbing and brutally assaulting media personalities and political opponents. Among the people and logos included were late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and CNN.
The video’s massacre scene opens with the Trump figure walking down the center aisle of a packed church. More than a dozen of the parishioners’ faces are covered by the logos of major media organizations, ranging from PBS to The Washington Post. Rising out of the pews when Trump passes them, some of the churchgoers appear to be yelling at the president, whose face contorts into a scowl. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) screams as his head is lit on fire. Former president Barack Obama is smashed face-first like a battering ram into what appears to be part of a wooden pulpit. People with their faces replaced by the logos of news organizations such as CNN, NBC, Politico and HuffPost are brutally stabbed and shot. At the center of the bloody rampage unfolding in the “Church of Fake News” is a man dressed in a dark pinstripe suit. Trump’s head is superimposed on his body. As the shouting intensifies, Trump abruptly stops walking and turns to face the angry mob. He pulls out a black gun from his jacket’s inside pocket and shoots a person edited to represent late actor Peter Fonda, who was a vocal critic of the president, in the head from point-blank range. Trump takes down Bloomberg, Vox and “Fake News” in quick succession before shooting Politico. At one point, he grabs someone who represents the Black Lives Matter movement in a chokehold and shoots that person in the head. After shooting MSNBC host Rachel Maddow, Vice News, Rep. Adam B. Schiff (D-Calif.) and Slate, Trump tries to shoot late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.), but he is out of bullets. Instead, he uses his gun to deliver a vicious blow to the back of McCain’s neck. The attack continues with Trump going after some of his most prominent detractors. He stabs actress and comedian Rosie O’Donnell and repeatedly punches Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.). He goes on to shoot MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah), and later assaults Hillary Clinton with a gun. The video comes to a dramatic end when Trump jams a sharp wooden stake through the head of a person whose face is a CNN logo. A now-grinning Trump appears to survey the carnage as DJ Khaled’s song, “All I Do Is Win,” plays in the background. A pair of pixelated black sunglasses are lowered onto Trump’s face.
“This is an incitement to violence that didn’t just come from the dark corners of the Internet — it was shown at a pro-Trump conference at one of his resorts,” tweeted Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio. “I’m speechless.”
A video showing the same against Trump would get the creator arrested. Remember, Trump brags that he can get away with murder and any crime he wants.
And, Trump wants whistleblowers illegally unmasked so that his followers will murder them. Witness tampering in the extreme.
October 13: Scared by Turkey's invasion and ISIS, Trump retreated from Syria, hastily leaving behind 60 top ISIS terrorists to plot against the US and the slaughter of Kurds.
According to General John Allen, "This is what happens when Trump follows his instincts and because of his alignment with autocrats. There is blood on Trump's hands for abandoning our Kurdish allies."
Meanwhile, Trump played golf as his victims were being tortured and executed.
Over and over, Trump trades US interests for personal interests. Happened in Russia. Happened in Ukraine. Happened in China. Happened in Saudi Arabia. And this week, happened in Turkey (again)....making a deal with Turkey for his personal politial and financial interests at the expense of the Kurds now being slaughtered by Turkey and escape of hundreds of ISIS fighters to attack the US as part of its deal with Trump.
History. Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is in prison for his corruption with Ukraine, including assisting corruption of ousted President Viktor Yanukovych who fled to Russia February 2014. Trump national security advisor Michael Flynn conspired with Turkey to kidnap a US citizen and send him to Turkey for execution. Flynn, a convicted criminal, is soon to be sentenced to prison.
October 13: Turkey's attacks forced US forces to run, being tarketed by Turkey deliberately. U.S. troops withdrew from another town in Syria as Turkish-backed forces pushed deeper inside Syrian territory, seizing positions along a major highway that serves as the U.S. military’s main supply route into Syria — potentially cutting off U.S. troops further west, according to a U.S. official. The withdrawal came amid reports that hundreds of Islamic State supporters may have escaped from a camp housing displaced people in the town of Ain Issa, taking advantage of the mayhem that ensued as Turkish artillery pounded the area. Around a thousand of those who had been identified as Islamic State supporters, including foreigners, were housed in a separate section of the camp known as the Annex, which is now “completely empty,” according to an aid worker.
Trump is making the US a loser and reinvigorating ISIS.
Update: Via Turkey, Trump is using ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorists to execute US Kurd allies.
Update: Pentagon announced that the US is IN RETREAT from Turkey's invasion of Syria. Trump's weakness has infected the US military.
October 12: Trump announced that he "is on an island of one." Finally, something true.
Trump Hates America. Trump attacks daily the FBI, CIA, rule of law, non-whites, Constitution, all prior presidents, banks, truth, American values, NATO, national security etc. Concurrently, Trump praises anti-Americans, eg Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un and white supremacists....and promotes their threats and attacks against America. He hates what America stands for and its history. He attacks America on every foreign visit. He opposes and ridicules anyone loyal to America. In short, Trump hates America.
Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. (Voltaire, 1694-1778, must have had a nightmarish premonition about Trump)
October 11: After approving extermination of the Kurds in Syria just a few days ago, not that it has started, Trump is threatening sanctions against Turkey for doing so. Incompetence and corruption are a toxic mix.
Yesterday, Trump announce that there are no US troops in Syria. False, there are at least 1,000 and some of them were attacked with bombs by Syria today. US military announced that Turkey intentionally aimed their artillery fire toward US forces.
October 11: Trump's Ukraine corruption in a nutshell. It emanates from Russia, which occupies eastern Ukraine and intending to annex Ukraine like it did Crimea. Putin installed Trump as president in part to assist his Ukraine invasion and annexation. Knowing that Trump follows the money, Putin funded 2 Russians (who became US citizens) to conspire with Rudy Giuliani and other corrupt Trump lawyers with $325,000 illegal campaign funds to Trump to get rid of the US Ambassador to Ukraine because she fought against Ukraine corruption AND because she disagreed with Trump's attempt to corrupt Ukraine's new president with $400 million funded by US taxpayers to pay for Trump's corrupt search for political information against presidential candidate Joe Biden. These 2 Russians, shortly after meeting with Giuliani in Trump's Washington, DC restaurant, were arrested at Dulles Airport attempting to escape to Vienna (and meet with Giuliani there to further develop Putin's/Trump's conspiracy) and indicted by the FBI/NY office of the DOJ 2 days ago. Trump fired his US Ambassador to Ukraine in May 2019, clearing the way for his July 25 phone call extortion of the new Ukraine president to return Ukraine to corruption that favored Russia and to open new corruption directly with Trump. When Trump made this phone call public 2 weeks ago, Congress initiated its impeachment inquiry into Trump's abuse of power and obstruction of justice.
If the DOJ under Attorney General William Barr were not protecting Trump, he would also have been arrested and indicted.
The fired Ukraine Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch is sheduled to appear today before the congressional impeachment inquiry.
Update: Yovanovitch, a foreign service officer for 33 years, testified EVEN THOUGH she was directed by Trump not to and ignore Congress to further Trump's corrupt stonewalling against Congress. Bravo to Ambassador Yovanovitch.
Her testimony was both uplifting and sad. Uplifting in regard to the profound service that honest US diplomats contribute. Sad in regard to the her May 20 firing based on false conspiracy theories that were listened to in the US (Giuliani, Trump and the 2 arrested Russians manufactured those false conspiracies and produced her firing to profit Trump's corrupt election plan). Notably, also May 20, Ukraine elected its new president. Trump wanted to corrupt him without interference from Yovanovitch.
"I have stayed true to the oath that Foreign Service Officers take and observe every day: “that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic;” and “that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.”...From August 2016 until May 2019, I served as the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine. Our policy, fully embraced by Democrats and Republicans alike, was to help Ukraine become a stable and independent democratic state, with a market economy integrated into Europe...Russia’s purported annexation of Crimea, its invasion of Eastern Ukraine, and its de facto control over the Sea of Azov, make clear Russia’s malign intentions towards Ukraine. If we allow Russia’s actions to stand, we will set a precedent that the United States will regret for decades to come...Corruption is a security issue as well, because corrupt officials are vulnerable to Moscow. In short, it is in our national security interest to help Ukraine transform into a country where the rule of law governs and corruption is held in check...I do not know Mr. Giuliani’s motives for attacking me. But individuals who have been named in the press as contacts of Mr. Giuliani may well have believed that their personal financial ambitions were stymied by our anti-corruption policy in Ukraine...Finally, after being asked by the Department in early March to extend my tour until 2020, I was then abruptly told in late April to come back to Washington from Ukraine “on the next plane.” You will understandably want to ask why my posting ended so suddenly. I wanted to learn that too, and I tried to find out. I met with the Deputy Secretary of State, who informed me of the curtailment of my term. He said that the President had lost confidence in me and no longer wished me to serve as his ambassador. He added that there had been a concerted campaign against me, and that the Department had been under pressure from the President to remove me since the Summer of 2018. He also said that I had done nothing wrong and that this was not like other situations where he had recalled ambassadors for cause. I departed Ukraine for good this past May...Although I understand that I served at the pleasure of the President, I was nevertheless incredulous that the U.S. government chose to remove an Ambassador based, as best as I can tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives. To make matters worse, all of this occurred during an especially challenging time in bilateral relations with a newly elected Ukrainian president. This was precisely the time when continuity in the Embassy in Ukraine was most needed...We repeatedly uproot our lives, and we frequently put ourselves in harm’s way to serve this nation. And we do that willingly, because we believe in America and its special role in the world. We also believe that, in return, our government will have our backs and protect us if we come under attack from foreign interests. That basic understanding no longer holds true...I am proud of my work in Ukraine. The U.S. Embassy, under my leadership, represented and advanced the policies of the United States government as articulated, first by the Obama Administration and then by the Trump Administration. Our efforts were intended, and evidently succeeded, in thwarting corrupt interests in Ukraine, who fought back by selling baseless conspiracy theories to anyone who would listen. Sadly, someone was listening, and our nation is the worse off for that."
Trump claimed yesterday after their arrests he did not know who the 2 arrested Russians were. However, many pictures show Trump and his son, Don Jr., with the 2 Russians.
October 10: "We investigated the Watergate scandal. We believe Trump should be impeached. We, former members of the Watergate special prosecutor force, believe there exists compelling prima facie evidence that President Trump has committed impeachable offenses. This evidence can be accepted as sufficient for impeachment, unless disproved by any contrary evidence that the president may choose to offer. In the 1970s, we investigated serious abuses of presidential power by President Richard M. Nixon, including obstruction of justice, concealment of government records and misuse of government agencies to punish his political enemies. We prosecuted many of Nixon’s aides for their complicity in Nixon’s offenses. Rather than indicting the president, the grand jury named him an unindicted co-conspirator, delivered to the House a “road map” of the evidence implicating him in wrongdoing and deferred to the House’s constitutional responsibility to address such presidential wrongdoing through the impeachment process. The House, through its Judiciary Committee, fulfilled that responsibility by reviewing the evidence, interviewing witnesses and concluding that the facts warranted adopting three articles of impeachment: one for obstruction, one for abuse of power and one for contempt of Congress. Shortly thereafter, the president resigned rather than face a Senate trial. In our considered view, the same three articles of impeachment could be specified against Trump, as he has demonstrated serious and persistent abuses of power that in our view satisfy the constitutional standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”" (17 former Watergate prosecutors)
October 10: Yet another illegal Russian conduit of money to Trump revealed. Two Russian (Igor Fruman and Lev Parnas) associates of Rudy Giulianni were arested for campaign finance crimes, funneling foreign money to Trump's 2020 campaign and conspiracy to extort Ukraine. Parnas was Giuliani's fixer in Ukraine, introducing him to current and former officials as far back as 2018. The two gave hundreds of thousands in donations to a Trump-allied super PAC.
The two Russians were arrested at Dulles Airport trying to escape from the US just after meeting with Giulianni for lunch at a Trump restaurant in Washington, DC (probably tape recorded by FBI agents nearby) but before they could provide planned testimony before the Trump impeachment inquiry. Trump told Giulianni to tell the criminals to get lost fast, so they purchased one-way tickets from Washington, DC to Vienna, Austria, where Giulianni planned to meet them again for their conspiracy against the US, but this meeting was foiled by FBI's arrest.
Trump is all about crime.
And, Rudy Giuliani used a 2017 Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump to press Rex Tillerson, then-secretary of state, to support a prisoner swap to resolve the Justice Department's prosecution of a Turkish businessman accused of violating Iran sanctions. The businessman, Reza Zarrab, had ties to top Turkish government officials, who had pushed the US to drop charges that Zarrab had violated US sanctions on Iran's nuclear program. He was a client of Giuliani's. Is any lawyer for Trump NOT corrupt?
October 10: "In the past several weeks, it has become clear to any observer of current events that the president is abusing the office of the presidency for personal political objectives. We believe the acts revealed publicly over the past several weeks are fundamentally incompatible with the president’s oath of office, his duties as commander in chief, and his constitutional obligation to “take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” These acts, based on what has been revealed to date, are a legitimate basis for an expeditious impeachment investigation, vote in the House of Representatives and potential trial in the Senate. Additional evidence that was detailed in the Special Counsel’s Report, related matters of foreign emoluments, and persistent obstructive activities should also inform these proceedings. In addition, given that some of the critical facts under consideration by the Congress have been facilitated by a complaint presented to the Inspector General of the U.S. Intelligence Community, any efforts by U.S. government personnel to inappropriately pressure, intimidate or expose the whistleblower or future whistleblowers who follow the procedures provided by law are contrary to the norms of a society that adheres to the rule of law. As we said in an April 2019 statement, “free and fair elections, without foreign interference, are at the heart of a healthy democracy.” The Special Counsel’s report revealed, among other things, that the Trump 2016 campaign was open to and enthusiastic about receiving Russian government-facilitated assistance to gain an advantage in the previous election. The report was not only an exposition, it was a warning. The present circumstances are materially worse: we have not just a political candidate open to receiving foreign assistance to better his chances at winning an election, but a current president openly and privately calling on foreign governments to actively interfere in the most sacred of U.S. democratic processes, our elections. These activities, which are factually undisputed, undermine the integrity of our elections, endanger global U.S. security and defense partnerships, and threaten our democracy." (Republican attorneys.

October 10: According to Fox News, 51% of voters want Trump impeached AND removed from office.
Trump is strengthening the Taliban, Al Qaeda and ISIS so they return to attacking the US, rape and invasions of neighboring states.
October 9: King Trump sent his 2 most corrupt lawyers to TV to claim that Congress is committing 'regicide' against him. Regicide is the deliberate killing of a monarch, or the person responsible for the killing of a person of royalty. Why are lawyers permitted to be so corrupt to 'defend' their 'client' who sees himself a monarch.
October 9: Under Trump, billionaires paid less in taxes than the working class last year for the first time in U.S. history. The wealthiest 400 families had a 23 percent tax rate, compared to the bottom half of households, which had a 24.2 percent tax rate. The richest 400 families had a 47 percent tax rate in 1980 and a 56 percent tax rate in 1960, while the working class's tax rate has remained relatively stable
All US allies are learning that Trump will ruin them if they interfere with his private business or his relationship with Putin. Trump degrades America.
October 9: Trump's genocide of the Kurds in Syria (the US ally that destroyed the ISIS caliphate, costing the Kurds 11,000 lives) and release of 10,000 ISIS prisoners held in northeast Syria began. Trump prefers his business partner, Turkey, so that his Trump Towers will produce profit. Trump profits mean much more than return of ISIS and betraying a US ally. Yet another US-induced humanitartian crisis that will produce tens of thousands of refugees. Again and again, shame on America.
Russian recently sold substantian weapons to Turkey. Trump must help his benefactor, Russia.
October 7: After destroying much of Syria, Trump is removing troops to enable invasion of Syria by Turkey to eliminate local US allies, the Kurds, that fought against ISIS. A testosterone rush for Trump from genocide of a US ally and ISIS prisoner release to invade Europe in order to suppress his existential fear of being impeached.
Happy birthday Mr. President says Trump. Today is Putin's birthday and US running from Syria is Trump's birthday present. Syria's president and ISIS are gleeful too.
Update: Trump threatened to obliterate Turkey, a member of NATO.
Update: Regarding his sentence of genocide of the Kurds, resurgence of ISIS, birthday present to Putin and obliteration of Turkey, Trump announced that he "has great and unmatched wisdom."
Update: "Reports indicate Turkey is predictably attacking the Kurdish allies we abandoned. It’s a tragic loss of life among friends shamefully betrayed." (Mitt Romney)
Update: "The American decision not only puts the lives of countless thousands at risk. It also increases the likelihood of a resurgence of the global terror threat we worked so hard together with the US and its allies to defeat. Thousands of Islamic State fighters are in our custody. Guarding them takes huge amounts of resources. Now that we are forced to fend off a Turkish invasion, we will have no choice but to redirect our forces who are guarding the Islamic State prisoners. Their escape would pose a grave danger to Europe and beyond. This is not a threat, merely a reality — we cannot both defend against Turkey and maintain security over the Islamic State prisoners. Our people and our homes must come first. It is our obligation." (The Kurds)
Update: Trump said that the reason he endorsed Kurd genocide is that they did not help the US during World War II.
October 7: Under Trump, drug companies raised prices on seven popular drugs during 2017 and 2018 without clinical evidence that the drugs had been improved in any way. $5 billion.
October 7: China rejected Trump's call to investigate Joe Biden in order to get a favorable Trump trade deal.
October 6: If Trump’s Rage Brings ‘Civil War,’ Where Will the Military Stand?
The moment may come when soldiers have to choose between the Constitution and Donald Trump. No doubt most will embrace the Constitution. But some will see that as a tough call. Earlier this week Donald Trump, commander in chief of the U.S. armed forces, tweeted that his impeachment “will cause a Civil War” from which the country might never recover. (Patricia Ravalgi is a former Red Team Analyst and Intelligence Planner at U.S. Central Command)
October 5: Some Republicans are speaking.
Senator Mitt Romney: "When the only American citizen President Trump singles out for China’s investigation is his political opponent in the midst of the Democratic nomination process, it strains credulity to suggest that it is anything other than politically motivated. By all appearances, the President’s brazen and unprecedented appeal to China and to Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden is wrong and appalling."
Trump's response: "Mitt Romney never knew how to win. He is a pompous ‘ass’ who has been fighting me from the beginning. #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY."
Tucker Carlson, Fox News: "Donald Trump should not have been on the phone with a foreign head of state encouraging another country to investigate his political opponent, Joe Biden."
Judge Anthony Napolitano, Fox News: "Federal law defines as criminal the solicitation of aid – anything of value – for a political campaign from a foreign national or foreign government, whether the thing of value arrives or not. Federal law also prohibits bribery and attempted bribery, which is defined as withholding the performance of an official duty conditioned upon the personal receipt of a thing of value, whether the thing of value arrives or not. The law further prohibits intimidating witnesses, which is defined as the use of language designed to deter witnesses from giving testimony, whether the intimidation is successful or not. Can the president put his own needs and wants above the nation's? In a word: No. The president has taken an oath to enforce federal law, not break it. He cannot lawfully impose conditions – conditions that benefit him alone – as a prerequisite to compliance with the law. Is violating campaign finance law by involving a foreign government in an American presidential campaign an impeachable offense? Yes, it is. The expressed intention of those who wrote the Constitution and those who wrote the campaign finance laws 200 years later – and the lesson of the post-2016 election and Mueller-investigated angst in America – was to keep foreign governments out of the American political system. It was to remedy just such reckless, constitutionally destructive behavior that impeachment was intended."
Senator Ben Sasse: "Hold up: Americans don’t look to Chinese commies for the truth. If the Biden kid broke laws by selling his name to Beijing, that’s a matter for American courts, not communist tyrants running torture camps."
October 4: Trump: "I was investigated. I was investigated. Okay? Me. Me. In my campaign. I ran. I won. I was invest—you won’t say that, will you? I was investigated. I was investigated... I was investigated by the Obama administration. By the Obama administration I was investigated."
October 4: “Against the insidious wiles of foreign influence...the jealousy of a free people ought to be constantly awake, since history and experience prove that foreign influence is one of the most baneful foes of republican government.” George Washington, 1796
October 4: Trump announce, "As the President of the United States, I have an absolute right, perhaps even a duty, to investigate, or have investigated, CORRUPTION, and that would include asking, or suggesting, other Countries to help us out!"
FALSE, you are not a god king dictator, you only think you are. Before you, the US had always been a free democracy ruled by law, constitution and morality. You are crushing American ideals and handing American sovereignty over to foreign countries, especially if they seek to ruin the US.
October 3: For the past few days, Trump lied as usual, insisting that his transcript of a phone call and a whistleblower report were lies. Today, from the White House lawn, Trump announced that in fact, as did his transcript and the report show, made a phone call to Ukraine's president to press for his investigation of Joe Biden. Trump added that he now wants China to do the same. Trump using taxpayer resources for his election campaign, outsourcing US democracy to foreign governments. Criminal, corrupt, unconstitutional.
"Hold up: Americans don’t look to Chinese commies for the truth. If the Biden kid broke laws by selling his name to Beijing, that’s a matter for American courts, not communist tyrants running torture camps." (Senator Ben Sasse, Republican)
October 3: Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano is arguing that President Trump committed an impeachable offense during a July 25 phone call in which he pressured the Ukrainian president to investigate 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden and his son. "That conversation manifested both criminal and impeachable behavior," Napolitano writes in a Fox News column focused on a whistleblower complaint that accuses Trump of enlisting Ukraine's help in his 2020 reelection efforts. Federal law defines as criminal the solicitation of aid – anything of value – for a political campaign from a foreign national or foreign government, whether the thing of value arrives or not. Federal law also prohibits bribery and attempted bribery, which is defined as withholding the performance of an official duty conditioned upon the personal receipt of a thing of value, whether the thing of value arrives or not. The law further prohibits intimidating witnesses, which is defined as the use of language designed to deter witnesses from giving testimony, whether the intimidation is successful or not. The whistleblower has also alleged that senior administration officials attempted to dissuade Trump from asking for the favor from Zelensky. The whistleblower’s sources relate – and reporting now reveals – that a debate took place in the White House before the telephone call was made. Napolitano goes on to assert that "the criminal behavior to which Trump has admitted is much more grave than anything alleged or unearthed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller." Can the president put his own needs and wants above the nation's? In a word: No. The president has taken an oath to enforce federal law, not break it. He cannot lawfully impose conditions – conditions that benefit him alone – as a prerequisite to compliance with the law. Is violating campaign finance law by involving a foreign government in an American presidential campaign an impeachable offense? Yes, it is. The expressed intention of those who wrote the Constitution and those who wrote the campaign finance laws 200 years later – and the lesson of the post-2016 election and Mueller-investigated angst in America – was to keep foreign governments out of the American political system.
October 3: Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairwoman Ellen Weintraub called attention to a previous statement on the illegality of campaigns accepting foreign assistance.
October 3: Unfit for Office. Donald Trump’s narcissism makes it impossible for him to carry out the duties of the presidency in the way the Constitution requires. You don’t need to be a weatherman to know which way the wind blows, and you don’t need to be a mental-health professional to see that something’s very seriously off with Trump—particularly after nearly three years of watching his erratic and abnormal behavior in the White House. Questions about Trump’s psychological stability have mounted throughout his presidency. But those questions have been coming even more frequently amid a recent escalation in Trump’s bizarre behavior, as the pressures of his upcoming reelection campaign, a possibly deteriorating economy, and now a full-blown impeachment inquiry have mounted. And the questioners have included those who have worked most closely with him. Trump’s former chief of staff John Kelly is said to have described him as “unhinged,” and “off the rails,” and to have called the White House “Crazytown” because of Trump’s unbalanced state. Trump’s former deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein, once reportedly discussed recruiting Cabinet members to invoke the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, the Constitution’s provision addressing presidential disability, including mental disability. The president isn’t simply volatile and erratic, however—he’s also incapable of consistently telling the truth. The Framers of the Constitution expected the presidency to be occupied by special individuals, selfless people of the highest character and ability. But can Trump do all that? Does his personality allow him to? Answering those questions doesn’t require mental-health expertise, nor does it really require a diagnosis. You can make the argument for Trump’s unfitness without assessing his mental health. The DSM-5 describes its conception of pathological narcissism this way: “The essential feature of narcissistic personality disorder is a pervasive pattern of grandiosity, need for admiration, and lack of empathy that begins by early adulthood and is present in a variety of contexts.” The manual sets out nine diagnostic criteria that are indicative of the disorder, but only five of the nine need be present for a diagnosis of NPD to be made. Here are the nine: 1. Has a grandiose sense of self-importance (e.g., exaggerates achievements and talents, expects to be recognized as superior without commensurate achievements). 2. Is preoccupied with fantasies of unlimited success, power, brilliance, beauty, or ideal love. 3. Believes that he or she is “special” and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions). 4. Requires excessive admiration. 5. Has a sense of entitlement (i.e., unreasonable expectations of especially favorable treatment or automatic compliance with his or her expectations). 6. Is interpersonally exploitative (i.e., takes advantage of others to achieve his or her own ends) 7. Lacks empathy: is unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings or needs of others. 8. Is often envious of others or believes that others are envious of him or her. 9. Shows arrogant, haughty behaviors or attitudes. Yet pathological narcissism is not the only personality disorder that Trump’s behavior clearly indicates. A second disorder also frequently ascribed to Trump by professionals is sociopathy—what the DSM-5 calls antisocial personality disorder. As described by Lance Dodes, a former assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, “sociopathy is among the most severe mental disturbances.” Central to sociopathy is a complete lack of empathy—along with “an absence of guilt.” Sociopaths engage in “intentional manipulation, and controlling or even sadistically harming others for personal power or gratification. People with sociopathic traits have a flaw in the basic nature of human beings … They are lacking an essential part of being human.” (George Conway, Conservative)
October 3: TODAY, for what he is being impeached for, Trump directed Ukraine AND China AND countries around the world to investigate Joe Biden to aid Trump at taxpayer expense and in conflict with law and the Constitution. Trump connected his direction to China with his multi-billion-dollar options in his trade war with China. Trump-style bribery to interfere with the 2020 election. "If they don't do what we want we have tremendous power," said Trump. Quid pro quo. Trump also claimed that China is collaborating with Biden to steal billions of dollars from the US. CRIMES announced directly, again, by Trump. So desperate, he is trading US policy for foreign political interference to get him elected. He cannot stop posing the biggest danger to the US.
October 2: Swinging from crybaby to vindictive to liar, Trump exploded today, attacking everyone in sight as traitors, corrupt and enemies of the people and threatening lawsuits against Congress as well as members of Congress (for doing their constitutional duty). Trump called on his supporters to get rid of Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff, and the death treats against them are increasing. And, Trump is relying on the Attorney General, Secretary of State, largely foreign-owned Fox News and wacko Rudy Giuliani to implement his war against America. A sad portrayal of the US projected to the world.
Trump Is Going to Burn Down Everything and Everyone, and Republicans, That Means You. Donald Trump’s Oval Office performance art masterpiece Wednesday was one for the ages, a pity-party, stompy-foot screech session by President Snowflake von Pissypants, the most put-upon man ever to hold the highest office in the land. If you watched his nationally televised press conference, Trump’s shrill, eye-popping hissy fit scanned like the end of a long, coke-fueled bender where the itchy, frenzied paranoia is dry-humping the last ragged gasps of the earlier party-powder fun. (Rick Wilson, Republican)
October 2: Trump dramatically expanded US exposure to risky mortgages, as he has taken steps that cleared the way for companies to issue loans that many borrowers might not be able to repay. Now, Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Federal Housing Administration guarantee almost $7 trillion in mortgage-related debt, 33 percent more than before the housing crisis 10 years ago. Because these entities are run or backstopped by the U.S. government, a large increase in loan defaults could cost taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars.
October 2: Trump congratulated China for 70 years of Communist rule.
At massive taxpayer expense Trump is running his 2020 election campaign out of the White House, directing his Cabinet to spare no expense, crime or offense to the Constitution to get Trump re-elected. Travel expenses, rentals spaces, meetings with lobbyists, secret missions of the Attorney General, Air Force One expenses and more all illegally at taxpayer expense.
October 2: Trump's primary benefactor to the rescue. Putin defended Trump against the congressional impeachment inquiry AND announced that he will again interefere with the 2020 election for Trump. What would Trump do without Putin? LOOSE.
October 1: Further attacking the US Constitution, Trump claimed that implementing the constitution's impeachment process is a coup against his dictatorship.
October 1: Trump considering shooting immigrants and anyone else in his way at the border (possibly innocent Americans and Mexicans) in the legs, aiming harpoons from the top of his walls and placing aligators and snakes in waterways to threaten, harm and kill.
October 1: Trump sent AG William Barr around the world, even in 2019, to pressure foreign governments to produce information to attack Hillary Clinton. Trump recognized that Clinton should have won the election as is desperately trying to change his view. If he can only find Clinton crimes Trump can sleep better with his crimes.
September 30: Two other Trump 'lawyers', Joe diGenova and Victoria Toensing, announced today that they too were secretly involved in Trump's Ukraine scheme to interfere with the 2020 election. According to diGenova, "He asked us—[Rudy Giuliani] asked us to represent any of the Ukrainian whistleblowers who wanted to provide information to U.S. law enforcement about what they had heard and learned. They were fearful to come to U.S. law enforcement because the United States ambassador in the Ukraine at that time had threatened these individuals not to give information because, as she, the ambassador, put it, Trump was going to be impeached and Biden was going to be president." Because US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch balked at Trump's criminal scheme and predicted Trump's impeachment for it, Trump fired her in May 2019, a month after Trump's first call with Ukraine's president and 5 months after Giuliani began Trump's Ukraine scheme.
September 30: For conducting an impeachment inquiry Trump announced he wants Rep. Adam Shiff, House chair of the Intelligence Committee, to be arrested for treason, and then executed.
September 30: If Republicans Can’t Say Trump’s Wrong, We’ll Deserve What We Get. What President Trump did was wrong, in the best circumstances. And the Republican Party will be a shell of itself moving forward if it cannot say as much. (Rory Cooper, Republican)
September 30: One year ago, Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered and dismembered by a hit squad dispatched on the orders of Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. Trump has aided cover up of this murder because Khashoggi worked for The Washington Post, which Trump sees as an enemy of the people.
"We hope that someday, when Saudi Arabia and the United States have a better class of leadership, Jamal’s case will be remembered as a turning point. It might be recorded as the moment when Saudi Arabia began to understand the consequences of its brutality, when the United States learned important lessons about standing up for its values, and when both countries rediscovered liberty, human rights and respect for the truth." (Fred Ryan, publisher and CEO of The Washington Post)
September 30: Trump called for civil war when he is impeached and specifically threatened, again, the CIA whistleblower, demanding he meets the whistleblower for "big consequences." A few days ago, Trump called for execution of the whistleblower and White House officials who supported the whistleblower.
A Trump supporter now has a $50,000 for information leading to identity and whereabouts of the CIA whistleblower. Trump's hit squad is preparing "big consequences."
September 29: Trump's former Homeland Security Advisor Tom Bossert said that he’s “deeply frustrated” how Trump keeps pushing the DNC server hack conspiracy theory (the bogus Crowdstrike conspiracy claiming that Ukraine hacked the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton, not Russia for Trump, and that Ukraine has Clinton's emails). "It’s not only a conspiracy, it is completely debunked. Let me just again repeat that it has no validity. The United States government reached its conclusion on attributing to Russia the DNC hack in 2016 before it even communicated it to the FBI, long before the FBI ever knocked on the door at the DNC."
Trump now claims he is the whistleblower, not the CIA whistleblower whose August 12, 2019 report was released by Trump 3 days ago, which was found credible by Trump's Director of National Intelligence and Intelligence Community Inspector General.
Trump is also now changing his story....July 25, Trump tried to trade hundreds of millions of dollars in military support for Ukraine for interfering in the 2020 election. Now, he says that the trade was not for election interference but for Ukraine investigation of 2016 election interference. Jibberish of course but his fake Republicans in Congress parroted the lie all over Sunday news shows today.
Will Trump only turn up his bluster to incite more fear, more violence, more division and more weakening of the US? We he call his 'base' to his 'second amendment' solution? Will he murder someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it? Will further mimic and collaborate with his favorite dictators...Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Mohammad bin Salman and Rodrigo Duterte? How much further will the US be insulted and damaged?
They are trying to stop ME, because I am fighting for YOU! pic.twitter.com/xiw4jtjkNl— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 28, 2019
Panicked, desperate and selling more fear, the Trump clown lies to defend his crimes. The Democrats have never done what he claims. His first sentence is correct, "What is going on now is the single greatest scam in the history of American politics." This life-long scammer must be impeached and removed from office for not the least of which is revealed in 2 documents about his crimes he released a couple days ago. Trump is the sole cause of his impeachment, ably assisted of course by Russia, Saudi Arabia, Rudy Giuliani, Mike Pompeo, Mitch McConnell and William Barr. Once removed, the world will rejoice.
September 29: With Russia's interference, Trump won the election nearly 3 years ago. Still, he orders his minions to investigate Hillary Clinton and everyone who sent here emails. As many as 130 officials have been contacted in recent weeks by State Department investigators — a list that includes senior officials who reported directly to Clinton as well as others in lower-level jobs whose emails were at some point relayed to her inbox, said current and former State Department officials. Those targeted were notified that emails they sent years ago have been retroactively classified and now constitute potential security violations, according to letters reviewed by The Washington Post. Imagine if the next president does this for Trump and his Twitter pals.
September 29: Trump claims that the Democrats in the House of Representatives are doing nothing. Just one of his 13,000 lies of course. House Democrats have written nearly 4,500 bills, hundreds at least sitting dormant in the corrupt Senate.
September 28: As Trump tells it, he is a hard-working and honorable president whose conduct has been “perfect” but who is being harassed and tormented by “Do Nothing Democrat Savages” and a corrupt intelligence community resolved to perpetuate a hoax, defraud the public and, ultimately, undo the 2016 election. “There has been no President in the history of our Country who has been treated so badly as I have,” Trump tweeted early Wednesday, some 13 hours after Pelosi’s announcement (of the impeachment inquiry). Victimization always has been core to Trump’s identity, both as a politician and as a real estate promoter and reality-television star. At the heart of Trump’s case is his obsession with the 2016 election, the results of which he boasts about in historic terms despite the asterisk over Russia’s interference campaign to boost his candidacy, as well as the fact that he lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. In the nearly three years since, Trump has tried to re-litigate his election by discounting — and, in some instances, rejecting outright — the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia interfered, and by proving that he defeated Clinton soundly in the electoral college entirely on his own superior abilities as a candidate. Trump’s attitude is shared by his personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, whose own work in Ukraine looks to figure prominently in the impeachment inquiry. “It is impossible that the whistleblower is a hero and I’m not. And I will be the hero! These morons — when this is over, I will be the hero,” Giuliani told her. “I’m not acting as a lawyer. I’m acting as someone who has devoted most of his life to straightening out government,” Giuliani continued. “Anything I did should be praised.” (Philip Rucker)
Trump is victim only to his self victimization through narcissism, racism, fascism, greed, weakness temper tantrums and abhorrence to American values, truth, rule of law, fairness and integrity.
It will be glorious to someday celebrate America again.
Question. Trump says that those investigating his crimes are on a witch hunt. Doesn't this mean that he sees himself as a witch?
September 28: The most damning evidence came from the president himself. It centers around a phone call with the president of Ukraine in which Trump raises the issue of investigating the son of presidential hopeful Joe Biden, and the implication of Trump’s words is clear as day. He asks for an investigation that would benefit him politically and has nothing to do with legitimate U.S. interests, and he brings it up repeatedly, including immediately upon the Ukrainian president mentioning the need for U.S. security aid. This is an impeachable offense. The truth is that Trump has been breaking laws and norms with impunity from the beginning. (CTPost)
September 27: In a meeting where no American was permitted to be, Trump told Russia's top 2 spies in the US in a 2017 Oval Office meeting that he was unconcerned about Moscow’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election because the United States did the same in other countries, an assertion that prompted alarmed White House officials to limit access to the remarks to an unusually small number of people, according to three former officials with knowledge of the matter.
September 27: Another Trump lie. He claimed he was totally surprised by the whistleblower report released to Congress and the public over the past 2 days. Turns out the CIA sent report to Trump more than 2 months ago.
September 27: Trump claims that the whistleblower report is all lies (and that its author and White House officials who provided facts for the report should be executed). However, Trump corroborated a core disclosure in the report, written August 12, in his 'memo'/'transcript' document he released September 25. Today, Trump corroborated perhaps the most explosive new claim in the report, that lawyers directed that non-classified political documents be transferred to a classified computer server to hide them. Today, the White House announced that indeed white house lawyers directed the move from the usual computer to the classified computer reserved for top secret intelligence information. NOTHING HAS YET to be found false in the whistleblower report declassified by Trump and released yesterday.
September 27: More than 300 former U.S. national security and foreign policy officials have signed a statement warning that President Trump’s actions regarding Ukraine are a “profound national security concern” and supporting an impeachment inquiry by Congress to determine “the facts.” The list includes signers who served as career officials in both Democratic and Republican administrations, including Matthew Olsen, head of the Justice Department’s national security division under President George W. Bush and director of the National Counterterrorism Center under President Barack Obama.
"Specifically, all of us recognize the imperative of formal impeachment proceedings to ascertain additional facts and weigh the consequences of what we have learned and what may yet still emerge. We applaud those Members of Congress, including Speaker Pelosi, who have now started us down that necessary path. President Trump appears to have leveraged the authority and resources of the highest office in the land to invite additional foreign interference into our democratic processes. That would constitute an unconscionable abuse of power. It also would represent an effort to subordinate America’s national interests—and those of our closest allies and partners—to the President’s personal political interest. There is no escaping that what we already know is serious enough to merit impeachment proceedings. From there, the facts—and nothing but the facts—should dictate how Congress holds the President to account and signals to the world that our foreign policy and national security are not for sale."
September 26: Execute them. Trump considers the whistleblower report so credible that he announced he wants to execute those officials in the White House that disclosed what was happening in the White House, trumpian witness tampering by threat of execution and yet more obstruction of justice. Trump said they, his officials, are treasonous spies. Notably, the Intelligence Community Inspector General and Director of National Intelligence, both Trump appointees, also found the report credible.
Execute officials in the White House says Russia's President of the United States, Donald J. Trump
September 26: The US Director of National Intelligence (DNI), appointed by Trump, testified under oath that:
The Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG), appointed by Trump, found the 8/12/19 'whistleblower report' (WR) credible and urgent after his investigation.
The DNI first consulted the White House to learn if the White House considered the WR limited by Executive Privilege. As of today, the White House still has NOT exerted Executive Privilege.
The DNI then went to the DOJ Office of Legal Counsel (OLC) for advice. The OLC determined that the WB was convered by Executive Privilege even though Trump has not and that the WR was not urgent, directly contradicting the OLC.
The White House was the only source of any leak of information in the report. Leaks could not have come from congress or the intelligence community.
Yesterday's release by Trump of the 'memo' regarding the July 25 phone call between Trump and the Ukraine president opened the door for him to release the WB yesterday to congress and subsequent release to the public just before this hearing. Given Trump's release yesterday there was no longer a situation with Executive Privilege.
DNI testified that he does not know who the whistleblower is, is operating in good faith, and there is no reason to consider the whistleblower disloyal to the US. "The whistleblower did the right thing....The whistleblower complied with the law."
DNI applauds the action of the ICIG and that he acted in good faith.
The whisleblower is permitted to testify openly and freely to congress with all the protections of the law and not be constrained by the White House.
His life experience informed his conclusion that the WR is an important matter and unprecedented.
The ICIG referred the WR to DOJ for criminal investigation.
Those with access to classified information must be vetted/investigated. (notably, Rudy Giuliani has extensive access to classified information without vetting and a key player in Trump's classified activities, eg those corrupt activities just unclassified today in the WR)
The ICIG did a thorough investigation and made a determination that the WR was credible and urgent, including direct discussion with the whistleblower.
Greatest threat to the US is not from Russia, China or North Korea but from election interference. (the specific Trump scheme presented in the WR and what Trump did with Russia for 2016 and tried to do with Ukraine for 2020) "We do face significant threats, I’d say number one is not necessarily kinetic, it’s cyber, this is a cyber war."
He will not permit the whistleblower or the ICIG be subject to retaliation.
He did not see the 'memo'/'transcript' of Trump's phone call with Ukraine's president until yesterday after Trump released it. (incredible, the DNI is oblivious to what he says is the biggest threat against the US, interference in our elections, particularly when perpetrated by Trump)
Any crime or fraud should be turned over to the DOJ, which he says he did regarding the whistleblower. They, he saw crime or fraud.
The whistleblower complaint and its handling is totally unprecedented. Never before has there been such a situation involving the president. (Indeed, never before has a US president been so corrupt, so criminal and so treasonous)
Amazingly, the DNI testified that the President of the United States is not a member of the intelligence community and thereover not subject to laws pertaining to the intelligence community...even though the president can classify or declassify any intelligence information desired. the DNI also said that although he is responsible for assuring integrity of US elections that he has no duty to investigate the WR. He says it is not his duty to investigate the whistleblowers conclusion that what Trump did is a threat to US national security. He says that only DOJ and congress can investigate. Hopefully, these statements are not correct. If true then why do we have a DNI?
September 26: According to the August 12, 2019 'whistleblower report', released to Congress only yesterday after a month of illegal delay and to the public today, Trump and the US Attorney General are corrupt and actively covering up their crimes. From the report...
"In the course of my official duties, I have received information from multiple U.S. Government officials that the President of the United States is using the power of his office to solicit interference from a foreign country in the 2020 U.S. election. This interference includes, among other things, pressuring a foreign country to investigate one of the President's main domestic political rivals. The President's personal lawyer, Mr. Rudolph Giuliani, is a central figure in this effort. Attorney General Barr appears to be involved as well.
Over the past four months, more than half a dozen U.S. officials have informed me of various facts related to this effort. The information provided herein was relayed to me in the course of official interagency business. It is routine for U.S. officials with responsibility for a particular regional or functional portfolio to share such information with one another in order to inform policymaking and analysis.
I am also concerned that these actions pose risks to U.S. national security and undermine the U.S. Government's efforts to deter and counter foreign interference in U.S. elections.
I was not a direct witness to most of the events described. However, I found my colleagues' accounts of these events to be credible because, in almost all cases, multiple officials recounted fact patterns that were consistent with one another. In addition, a variety of information consistent with these private accounts has been reported publicly.
Multiple White House officials with direct knowledge of the call informed me that, after an initial exchange of pleasantries, the President used the remainder of the call to advance his personal interests. Namely, he sought to pressure the Ukrainian leader to take actions to help the President's 2020 reelection bid. According to the White House officials who had direct knowledge of the call, the President pressured Mr. Zelensky to, inter alia:
• initiate or continue an investigation into the activities of former Vice President Joseph Eiden and his son, Hunter Eiden;
• assist in purportedly uncovering that allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election originated in Ukraine, with a specific request that the Ukrainian leader locate and turn over servers used by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and examined by the U.S. cyber security firm Crowdstrike, which initially reported that Russian hackers had penetrated the DNC's networks in 2016; and
• meet or speak with two people the President named explicitly as his personal envoys on these matters, Mr. Giuliani and Attorney General Barr, to whom the President referred multiple times in tandem.
The White House officials who told me this information were deeply disturbed by what had transpired in the phone call. They told me that there was already a "discussion ongoing" with White House lawyers about how to treat the call because of the likelihood, in the officials' retelling, that they had witnessed the President abuse his office for personal gain.
In the days following the phone call, I learned from multiple U.S. officials that senior White House officials had intervened to "lock down" all records of the phone call, especially the official word-for-word transcript of the call that was produced -as is customary- by the White House Situation Room. This set of actions underscored to me that White House officials understood the gravity of what had transpired in the call.
White House officials told me that they were "directed" by White-House lawyers to remove the electronic transcript from the computer system in which such transcripts are typically stored for coordination, finalization, and distribution to Cabinet-level officials.
(this represents a massive corruption of the national classification system, converting unclassified information into a classified status to hide crimes; and the DOJ, under co-conspirator William Barr, claimed that this process is outside the duty of the DNI)
Instead, the transcript was loaded into a separate electronic system that is otherwise used to store and handle classified information of an especially sensitive nature. One White House official described this act as an abuse of this electronic system because the call did not contain anything remotely sensitive from a national security perspective.
I also learned from multiple U.S. officials that, on or about 2 August, Mr. Giuliani reportedly traveled to Madrid to meet with one of President Zelensky' s advisers, Andriy Yermak. The U.S. officials characterized this meeting, which was not reported publicly at the time, as a "direct follow -up" to the President's call with Mr. Zelenskyy about the "cases" they had discussed.
Starting in mid-May, I heard from multiple U.S. officials that they were deeply concerned by what they viewed as Mr. Giuliani's circumvention of national security decision making processes to engage with Ukrainian officials and relay messages back and forth between Kyiv and the President. These officials also told me:
• that State Department officials, including Ambassadors Volker and Sondland, had spoken with Mr. Giuliani in an attempt to "contain the damage" to U,S. national security; and
• that Ambassadors Volker and Sandland during this time period met with members of the new Ukrainian administration and, in addition to discussing policy matters, sought to help Ukrainian leaders understand and respond to the differing messages they were receiving from official US channels on one hand, and from Mr. Giuliani on the other.
During this same timeframe, multiple U.S. officials told me that the Ukrainian leadership was led to believe that a meeting or phone call between the President and President Zelenskyy would depend on whether Zelenskyy showed willingness to "play ball" on the issues that had been publicly aired by Mr. Lutsenko and Mr. Giuliani."
September 26: Ukraine in a nutshell. In June, the Depts of Defense and State committed to funding Ukraine's defense against Russia's attacks the past 5 years ($250 million and $141 million, respectively). Mid July, Trump froze this congressionally-approved funding of Ukraine. Trump, in the style of the Godfather movie, called the president of Ukraine July 25 to make a deal. Ukraine's president pleaded for the US funding but Trump said he first needed a favor: assist Trump's election campaign by linking corruption to Joe Biden. Trump informed the Ukraine president that his conspiracy would be handled by Attorney General William Barr and Rudy Giuliani (who insists he was directed by the State Department in everything he did with Ukraine against Biden, thus involving Secretary of State Mike Pompeo). When recommendations for criminal prosecution were submitted to DOJ after investigation of the White House by the National Intelligence Inspector General (placed by Trump and a 15-year veteran of DOJ prosecutions) regarding Trump's Ukraine conspiracy against the US, Barr said no of course (this was a part of his contribution to Trump's conspiracy). September 11, Trump released Ukraine funding as knowledge of his new criminal conspiracy began to unfold. September 24, the US House of Representatives announced its official impeachment inquiry. September 25, Trump released notes of his July 25 mob-like shakedown of the president of Ukraine (proving Trump's conspiracy). Today, Trump released a fuller accounting of Trump's conspiracy known as the 'whistleblower report' (more fully and dramatically proving Trump's conspiracy, including setting up a hidden new computer to store Trump's records of this new conspiracy). All of this, of course, is deja vu....essentially a repeat of Trump's conspiracy with Russia against the US for the 2016 election. Trump knows he cannot be elected without corruption and foreign election interference.
There was also an April 2019 phone call between Trump and Ukraine's president, wherein Trump told him to coordinate with Rudy Giuliani against Biden.
The connection Joe Biden has with Ukraine: Along with most of the world, Biden worked to get the Prosecutor-General of Ukraine removed from office because of his corruption. March 2016, he was removed by the Ukraine government. Trump calls Biden's effort to reduce corruption Biden's corruption, Trump preferring renewed corruption in Ukraine.
Trump's National Intelligence Inspector General: Michael K. Atkinson. Atkinson worked for the U.S. Department of Justice for over fifteen years. He was a trial attorney in the Department of Justice Criminal Division, Fraud Section, from 2002 through 2006. He served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia from 2006 through 2016, where he was the Acting Chief and Deputy Chief of the Fraud and Public Corruption Section. In 2012, he was awarded the Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service for his work on a significant public corruption case. Thereafter, he served in Department of Justice National Security Division as the Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General for National Asset Protection and as Senior Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General. Atkinson was awarded the Executive Office for United States Attorneys’ Director’s Award for Superior Performance by an Assistant United States Attorney, and the Council of the Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency Gaston L. Gianni Jr. Better Government Award for his work prosecuting the largest domestic bribery and bid steering scheme in the history of federal contracting. Michael K. Atkinson was sworn in as the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community on May 17, 2018, following his confirmation by the U.S. Senate. As Inspector General, Mr. Atkinson oversees a workforce of special agents, auditors, inspectors, attorneys, and support staff whose mission is to promote economy, efficiency, and effectiveness in the administration and implementation of programs and activities within the responsibility and authority of the Director of National Intelligence and to prevent and detect fraud and abuse in such programs and activities. He also serves as the Chair of the Intelligence Community Inspectors General Forum, which consists of the twelve inspectors general with oversight responsibility for elements of the intelligence community. The Forum serves as a mechanism for informing its members of the work of individual members of the Forum that may be of common interest and discussing questions that may involve or be of assistance to more than one of its members.
Because Trump is weak, incompetent, narcissistic and corrupt, all historical standards for President of the United States have been abandoned.
September 25: With his crybaby sulking persona, seeming about to break out crying any moment, at his depressive news conference Trump viciously attacked members of congress who do not want to support corruption in Ukraine. Trump insists that this is corruption and that it is wrong to reduce corruption in Ukraine. This is why Trump says his corruption in Ukraine is "perfect", a good thing and that Joe Biden's efforts to reduce Ukraine corruption was a bad thing, for which he deserved to be killed by electrocution. More corruption is good for Trump but bad for America.
Trump claims his falsified conspiracy theories are more important that truth about his crimes.
Trump also announced that Barrack Obama did what he did, making a deal with Ukraine to interfere with a US election, than Obama would prove he was corrupt.
September 25: Trump announced today that he is the smartest and most accomplished president in the history of the US and the history of the world.
September 25: TRUMP ANNOUNCED THAT IF THE DEMOCRATS DID WHAT HE DID, pursue Ukraine to interfere in the US 2020 election, THEY SHOULD BE IMPEACHED.
A stunning endorsement of his impeachment by Trump and the initiation of an impeachment inquiry yesterday in congress.
September 25: A cleaned-up transcript of 'notes' of a July 25, 2019 phone call between Trump and the Ukrainian president (a 41-year-old career comedian) indeed revealed that Trump directed Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 US election by investigating Joe Biden and to work with Rudy Giuliani and US Attorney General William Barr in doing so (subsequently, the corrupt US State Dept. directed Giuliani to initiate direct contracts in Ukraine against Joe Biden). Biden had a role in concert with Europe, the US and other countries around the world to get a highly corrupt prosecutor in Ukraine fired....a good thing. Trump prefers corruption and therefore is now trying to resurrect this corrrupt prosecutor. Won't happen. But the headline is that Trump directed Ukraine to interfere with the 2020 election because Trump recognized that he cannot win without corrupt interference in the election by foreign countries, eg Russia and Ukraine. Trump's notes corroborate numerous press accounts over the past few weeks, proving that Trump calling them lies is yet another series of Trump lies.
No wonder Barr tried to bury the whistleblower complaint. Barr illegally barred the Director of National Intelligence to forward this complaint to Congress as required by law. And, Intelligence Community Inspector General referred a criminal complaint to the Justice Dept to investigate Trump's campaign finance crime vis a vis Ukraine. Barr last week determined not to open an investigation. Why? Barr was a co-conspirator with Trump's crimes.
September 25: Buckle up for Trump's lie machine, a smokescreen of diversions, his diabolic fake news, projecting his crimes to everyone else, nonsense, threats, temper tantrums and more devaluation of America. Trump will try to do what worked so well in his business....lie and cheat beyond the ability of bankers, debtors, regulators, politicians, competitors and the public to comprehend the extent of his fabrications and crimes.
September 24, 2019: For betraying the law, betraying national security, betrayal of the integrity of elections, stonewalling oversight duty of congress, obstruction of justice and congress, conspiracy against the US, collusion with foreign governments to interfere with US elections, and violating his oath of office and the US Constitution FROM THE OVAL OFFICE, a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump's crimes and corruption was announced today by the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Facts will lead to Trump's impeachment in the House and trial in the Senate presided over by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.
Trump is being criminally assisted by the Vice President, Secretary of State, Director of National Intelligence, Attorney General, Chief of Staff, scores of taxpayer-paid lawyers, private criminal defense lawyers, other Trump staff and fake Republicans in Congress. Trump's treasonous conspiracy is the largest the world has ever seen.
September 24: At the UN, once again, Trump gave his middle finger to the world in a depressing cold speech talking down to the world. He demands that all countries bow to his view. Historical American values and inspirations are no longer relevant or respected. Trump portrays the US as the most despicable force in the world. You are all little people that must serve and pay Trump or you will perish. You are nothing compared to the supreme power of America. Nothing positive, constructive or optimistic. Trump's 'America' is nothing to be proud of or inspired by.
September 24: The president of the United States may have used his position to pressure a foreign country into investigating a political opponent, and he sought to use U.S. taxpayer dollars as leverage to do it. He allegedly sought to use the very security assistance dollars appropriated by Congress to create stability in the world, to help root out corruption and to protect our national security interests, for his own personal gain. These allegations are stunning, both in the national security threat they pose and the potential corruption they represent. We also know that on Sept. 9, the inspector general for the intelligence community notified Congress of a “credible” and “urgent” whistleblower complaint related to national security and potentially involving these allegations. Despite federal law requiring the disclosure of this complaint to Congress, the administration has blocked its release to Congress. This flagrant disregard for the law cannot stand. To uphold and defend our Constitution, Congress must determine whether the president was indeed willing to use his power and withhold security assistance funds to persuade a foreign country to assist him in an upcoming election. (Gil Cisneros, Jason Crow, Chrissy Houlahan, Elaine Luria, Mikie Sherrill, Elissa Slotkin and Abigail Spanberger, freshman members of congress and all with professional military or national security background)
This isn’t just another spat. Trump compromised our security for his gain. The Ukraine issue is about compromising U.S. national security — and direct pledges to allies — for the president’s personal political gain. That’s what’s so outrageous about Trump’s alleged push to get dirt on his potential 2020 rival, former vice president Joe Biden, in a July 25 phone call with newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Not for the first time, Trump was putting himself above his country. Trump isn’t even bothering to deny the basics. He confirmed Tuesday that he had held up delivery of a promised $391 million in military aid for the Ukrainians in mid-July, before his call to Zelensky. Trump claimed he wanted to pressure “Europe and other nations to contribute to Ukraine.” Trump had suggested Sunday that in the July call he had urged Zelensky to investigate Biden’s son’s work for a Ukrainian gas company. (David Ignatious)
September 24: The UK Supreme Court ruled that UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Trump's dear friend, broke the law and victimized the Queen for criminally shutting down Parliament, crimes encouraged by Trump. Trump is trying the same here in the US, determined to shut down function of congress and the press as well as send his political rivals to prison or to be killed in the electric chair.
September 23: Another Trump supporter was arrested for threatening to bomb CNN and murder Beto O'Rourke, a candidate for president.
September 23: Trump announced that he wants Joe Biden killed in the electric chair for running for president. Biden has committed no crime.
Trump hates true bravery. Greta Thunberg is at the UN from Sweden telling all of us, "How dare you." Trump walked out of the UN General Assembly as the world discussed climate change. Trump scorned Greta, an ally of his on Fox News called her "mentally ill."
Trump hates true bravery. Trump scorns victims of sexual assault like Chanel Miller. How dare you demean the victims of your sexual assault and that of your pedophile pals like Jeffrey Epstein. How dare you brag about your lust for your child daughter on radio shows. Perverts like you must never be allowed in the White House.
September 23: Trump walked out on the world. As soon as the UN began discussing climate change, considered by the Pentagon to be a serious crisis, Trump gathered his flock of anti-conservatives, and stood up and pouted out of the room. He can't stand anyone trying to save earth.
September 22: A mob enforcer doesn’t have to say “pay up, or we will destroy your store” to be guilty of extortion. The message is conveyed clearly enough if he says “nice store, shame if anything happened to it” combined with the storekeeper’s knowledge of what the mafia has done to those who didn’t pay up. Likewise, Trump did not have to say to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, “Accuse Joe Biden of corruption, or you’ll never see any more aid from the United States.” It was sufficient that, according to the Wall Street Journal, in a July 25 call, Trump badgered Zelensky eight times to investigate Biden, before also withholding $250 million in military aid. The Ukrainians got the message whether the quid pro quo was explicitly laid out. As a Ukrainian official told the Daily Beast, “Clearly, Trump is now looking for kompromat to discredit his opponent Biden, to take revenge for his friend Paul Manafort, who is serving seven years in prison.” (Max Boot, Conservative)
Corruption is now the official policy of the US, adding to racism and fraud.
September 22: Donald Trump is not a conservative. He’s not a traditionalist, institutionalist, or incrementalist. He’s not a free-trader. He’s openly hostile to meritocracy, accountability, and the rule of law. He does not advocate for smaller government or smaller deficits. His views on free expression, privacy, and due process are frighteningly authoritarian. (George Will, Conservative)
September 22: Trump entered another war, this one between Saudi Arabia and Iran. Trump sent US troops to Saudi Arabia to enter the battle. Casualties expected in yet another place resulting from Trump. (the US has no defense agreement with Saudi Arabia; it's about profit to Trump's business again at the expense of US lives, laws and values)
September 22: Trump promised a brave new wall 3,000 miles long built of impenetrable concrete so beautiful he would put his name on it. So far, rusty replacement of existing border wall is all Trump has delivered....after 3 years. His new wall, rusty steel slats, Trump bragged were unclimbable. Again, fact is the opposite of what he says. Most people could easily scale the useless Trump wall.
September 22: Trump is a hedonist and subliterate boor who seeks to strip away any program that serves people in need or common concerns like the environment or global warming.
September 22: The framers of the Constitution did foresee the possibility of a presidential candidate who might be compromised or beholden to a foreign power: The electoral college was intended to act as a second fail-safe in the event of poor voter judgment, if a truly dangerous candidate came along. (In this case, it failed.) Unfortunately, once a person who is willing to act against the interests of the United States assumes the awesome powers of the presidency, the laws and investigative techniques we use in ordinary national security situations are woefully inadequate. Like the breach of multiple hulls in the Titanic, the mechanisms designed to keep our democracy afloat are giving way one by one. )Asha Rangappa is a senior lecturer at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale University and a former FBI agent. )
September 18: A close associate of Trump has filed a complaint about a serious, urgent and credible threat against the US national security perpetrated from the White House. Another assault by Trump? We do not yet know, and we don't yet know if this is another treason by Trump. We DO know that Trump ordered his Director of National Intelligence not to disclose the matter to Congress, yet another Trump crime.
Recognizing that he cannot win elections without criminal foreign interventions, Trump collaborated with Russia in 2016 and with Ukraine in 2019. Criminal and traitor.
If Whistleblower Is Right, Trump May Have Committed Extortion and Bribery. The president supposedly dangled millions of dollars in military aid to Ukraine in exchange for Kiev investigating Joe Biden. That looks a lot like old-fashioned corruption. (Barbara McQuade)
If the President asked or pressured Ukraine’s president to investigate his political rival, either directly or through his personal attorney, it would be troubling in the extreme. (Mitt Romney)
The push by Trump and his personal attorney, Rudolph W. Giuliani, to influence the newly elected Ukrainian leader reveals a president convinced of his own invincibility — apparently willing and even eager to wield the vast powers of the United States to taint a political foe and confident that no one could hold him back. The effort — which came as the Trump administration was withholding financial and military support from Ukraine to help the small democracy protect itself against Russian aggression — illustrates Trump’s expansive view of executive power and what appears to be a cavalier attitude about legal limits on his conduct. Trump’s sense of himself as above the law has been reinforced throughout his time in office. As detailed in the Mueller report, he received help from a foreign adversary in 2016 without legal consequence. He sought to thwart the Russia investigation and possibly obstruct justice without consequence. Through the government, he has earned profits for his businesses without consequence. He has blocked Congress’s ability to conduct oversight without consequence. Now he is alleged to have leveraged taxpayer dollars and U.S. military might to extort a foreign government for opposition research on a political opponent, and it is unclear what consequences, if any, he may face. Trump said in June that he would accept help with his 2020 reelection campaign from another country, which would be against the law. (Washington Post)
Not for the first time, President Trump has revealed the fragility of this country’s democratic system. Three years into his presidency, the evidence of a weakened system is all around. It has happened in plain sight. The latest involves the president and Ukraine. Based on what has so far been reported, the president asked, encouraged or demanded that the leader of a foreign government undertake an investigation designed to produce information that could damage a potential 2020 campaign rival. The outlines are these: According to multiple reports, on July 25, the president spoke on the phone with newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. In that conversation, he pressed the Ukrainian leader to reopen an investigation into a company that at one time had Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden, on its board. Shortly after that phone call, Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York mayor and Trump’s personal lawyer, met in Spain with an adviser to Zelensky. Giuliani further pressed the Ukrainian government to pursue the investigation involving Biden’s son, as well as one about alleged Democratic involvement with Ukrainians affecting Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chairman who is in prison. The contents of the Trump phone call prompted someone in the government to file a whistleblower complaint, an unprecedented grievance aimed at the president. The inspector general for the intelligence community found the whistleblower’s charge credible and urgent, in which case the information should have been relayed to Congress. That hasn’t happened because the White House and Justice Department are fighting it. When the president asserts executive privilege to prevent testimony before Congress by a private citizen who never was on the government payroll — as happened this past week when Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s former campaign manager, appeared before the House Judiciary Committee — it is clear how much Trump is prepared to test his belief that his powers are unlimited. “I have the right to do whatever I want as president,” Trump once said, and that appears to be the basis upon which he is operating. Three years into his presidency, Trump has helped to reveal the weaknesses of the system. In the executive branch, and especially in the White House, there are few if any officials willing to challenge and check the president. To the extent that administration officials could do that, those who tried are gone. He has also demonstrated the degree to which Congress is dependent on a president who operates with some respect for the norms of the system created by the Founding Fathers. (Dan Balz)
UPDATE: Trump announced that he did indeed plot with the Ukrainian president against Joe Biden. A criminal treasonous plot. Trump, falsely, told the Ukrainian president that Biden was corrupt and had to do something about it. A few days before the call, Trump suspended military support for Ukraine, releasing the aid after the callm, effectively paying off the Ukrainian president to interfere with the 2020 US election. Fraud, crime, again and again.
September 17: Trump sent his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski to Congress to make a farce, a mockery of the US Constitution. Lied, deflected, called others liars, ridiculed, attacked, claimed he could't 'recall', disrespected, an obvious criminal.....a mini Trump. This induced a fake Republican to call the Democrats "useless idiots."
Like Trump, Lewandowski boasted that he has "no reason to be honest..."
September 16: Trump is probably the biggest socialist in the world. He orders companies what to do and where not to do business, he uses government to make money for himself, he orders the DOJ to prosecute his competitors, he directs farmers to rethink their business, he is thrilled at directing the stock market, he thrives on insider trading, he will not disclose his financial records, he overrules military and national security experts, he places stooges in his government departments, he seeks to corrupt elections and education, he lives on lies, he threatens violence and litigation against journalists and minorities, his best friends are socialist dictators, his 'Dept of Justice', judges, political allies and friendly media endorse his crimes, his children have top jobs in his government, engineering corruption of elections and reductions in voting rights, opposes democracy (eg, directing states to cancel primaries to avoid votes against him)....you know, like everything we thought socialists do in Russia, North Korea and China, his role models for the US.
September 13: An op-ed from the 3 Republicans running for President...
"A president always defines his or her party, and today the Republican Party has taken a wrong turn, led by a serial self-promoter who has abandoned the bedrock principles of the GOP. In the Trump era, personal responsibility, fiscal sanity and rule of law have been overtaken by a preference for alienating our allies while embracing terrorists and dictators, attacking the free press and pitting everyday Americans against one another. No surprise, then, that the latest disgrace, courtesy of Team Trump, is an effort to eliminate any threats to the president’s political power in 2020. Republicans have long held primaries and caucuses to bring out the best our party has to offer. Do Republicans really want to be the party with a nominating process that more resembles Russia or China than our American tradition? What does this say about the Republican Party? If a party stands for nothing but reelection, it indeed stands for nothing. Our next nominee must compete in the marketplace of ideas, values and leadership. Each of us believes we can best lead the party. So does the incumbent. Let us each take our case to the public. Cowards run from fights. Warriors stand and fight for what they believe. The United States respects warriors. Only the weak fear competition. Under this president, the meaning of truth has been challenged as never before. Under this president, the federal deficit has topped the $1 trillion mark. Do we as Republicans accept all this as inevitable? Are we to leave it to the Democrats to make the case for principles and values that, a few years ago, every Republican would have agreed formed the foundations of our party?"
Mark Sanford was governor of South Carolina from 2003 to 2011. Joe Walsh represented Illinois’s 8th Congressional District in the House of Representatives from 2011 to 2013. Bill Weld was governor of Massachusetts from 1991 to 1997.
September 11: Trump is engineering decades more of ISIS. His dismissing Syria and Iraq refugees and creation of slums of the wives and children of ISIS fighters are producing generations of militants aimed at the US.
September 11: Trump intended to celebrate today with the Taliban in Washington, DC and/or Manhattan and their role in crashing airliners into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania (this plane was headed to crash into the White House or the Capitol), murdering thousands of Americans. But Trumps' Taliban party was foiled by National Security Director John Bolton, so Trump fired him yesterday. And, Trump spent his Twitter day today attacking the press, election polls and Americans.
September 11: A hallowed day, but corrupt Trump is at work, ordering pursuit of amazon.com in a bogus anti-trust investigation. (Amazon owns the Washington Post, which Trump claims is the enemy of the people)
September 10: To celebrate 9/11, Trump plans to further reduce US national security. Already attempting to handover Afghanistan to the Taliban to prepare another attack against the US, already disallowing protection of US elections from Russian interference, already preferring love letters from Putin and Kim Jong Un over counsel from the US intelligence community, already raiding national security and disaster prep/relief funding for his insane wall with Mexico....Trump is adding a plan to disallow US human assets in hostile countries to advise the US. Trump likes Putin/Kim Jong Un denials more than CIA conclusions of their assaults against the US.
September 9: To save a Russian's life from Trump's treasonous transfer of US national intelligence again to Russia, the CIA withdrew its asset soon after Trump spilled US national intelligence to top Russian spies INSIDE the Oval Office in May 2017.
The Moscow informant was instrumental to the C.I.A.’s most explosive conclusion about Russia’s interference campaign: that President Vladimir V. Putin ordered and orchestrated it himself. As the American government’s best insight into the thinking of and orders from Mr. Putin, the source was also key to the C.I.A.’s assessment that he affirmatively favored Donald J. Trump’s election and personally ordered the hacking of the Democratic National Committee.
It is wrong for the US President to be selected by the Russian government and for this president to encourage Russia's takeover of the US election process.
September 9: "Trump's latest controversies make his presidency look more than ever like a vehicle for self-justification, self-preservation and self-enrichment. Trump's frenetic activity violates long-accepted guardrails governing the commander in chief's role." (Stephen Collinson)
SEPTEMBER 7: TRAITOR TRUMP WAS GOING TO MEET THE LEADER OF THE TALIBAN, PROTECTORS OF OSAMA BIN LADEN, AT CAMP DAVID IN WASHINGTON, DC TO PLOT AGAINST US NATIONAL SECURITY AND DEFILE THE MEMORY OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. HIS EGGREGIOUS PLAN WAS TO TOAST THE TALIBAN AT THE WHITE HOUSE ON SEPTEMBER 11. TRUMP'S PLOT WAS DISCOVERED SO HE WAS FORCED TO CANCEL THE CLANDESTINE MEETING. ONCE AGAIN, TRUMP PROVES HE IS A TRAITOR. AS USUAL, MEDIA IS CLUELESS AND GOING WITH TRUMP'S LIE THAT HE CANCELLED THE TRIP TONIGHT BECAUSE THE TALIBAN KILLED A US SOLDIER THREE DAYS AGO.
The Taliban has killed thousands of Americans the last 20 years, not just one 3 days ago.
Trump wanted to hand Afghanistan over to the Taliban to reassembe its aggression against the US and plot addtional mass murders as they sponsored September 11, 2001.
Americans have spent and borrowed trillions of dollars to recover from the largest terror attack in the world since WWII. But Trump wants to honor them, the killers of thousands of Americans, in Washington, DC.
Meanwhile, Trump encourages Kim Jong Un to test missiles that are being depoloyed to threaten the US and Vladimir Putin to keep interfering with US elections.
September 4: To scare people in Alabama, using a press conference from the Oval Office TODAY, produced a criminally-modified false map of the track of Hurricane Dorian, attempting his fake news that Dorian would devastate Alabama. For a week, all forecasts indicated Dorians paths would remain east of the US, and today is wreaking havoc in South Carolina. Dorian was NEVER forecast to go to Alabama. The actual path of Dorian follows that forcast for a week.
Caught red handed falsifying a map, Trump then told us that things are great with China. This way, he could deflect AND make money on the stock market.
Trump broke federal law. 18USC2074. Whoever knowingly issues or publishes any counterfeit weather forecast or warning of weather conditions falsely representing such forecast or warning to have been issued or published by the Weather Bureau, United States Signal Service, or other branch of the Government service, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ninety days, or both.
When asked who falsified the map he presented, he had the same guilt face he had when questioned who paid Stormy Daniels, "I don't know" his lying anser.
September 3: Neo-Nazi Trump congratulated Poland for being invaded by the Nazis September 1, 1939.
September 2: Mass murder in Texas. 30+ killed in a boat fire in California. A Category 5 hurricane. Kim Jong Un missiles. His partnership with the Taliban killing scores in Afghanistan, economy on the slide, Russia attacking the US, NATO member Turkey turning toward Russia. Chaos everywhere. So, Trump went golfing today.
September 1: Again today as he has several times since 2017, Trump says he never heard that a hurricane can be Category 5. There have been 4 here at the US since he took office. CIA must be keeping such a secret from him to maintain his stable genius.
Russia's Prize Idiot: Trump Duet with Putin
August 30: Trump fired his long time personal assistant for telling a reporter that Trump does not like to be photographed with his daughter Tiffany because she is overweight.
Several Apple products get a 15% tarrif, ie tax, September 1. Higher prices to consumers, here they come?
August 30: Trump announced that 13% of US companies doing business with China are terminating doing business with China following is order that ALL US businesses terminate doing business with China. Ready for more higher prices?
At the G7, Trump boasted that he is running the US like he ran his business. Chaos, racism, lies, attacking law enforcement and the courts, breaking laws, filing several bankruptcies, damaging his workers, damaging the environment and contractors, and currently hundreds of millions in debt. Already in office, Trump has increased US debt $2 trillion, violated many laws and the US Constitution, attacked judges, caused closure of numerous companies, seriously damaging farmers and US manufacturing, infusing chaos into governance and economy, attacked US allies, praised US enemies, ruined the lives of millions of people, caged non-white children, encouraged white supremacists, making lies and racism US national policy, caused mass murder of Jews and Hispanics, rewarded Putin for getting him elected, rewarding Kim Jong Un for threatening US national security, ordered his banks and IRS not to reveal his fraud, rewarded Saudi Arabia for butchering a Washington Post journalist, weakened US national security agencies and Pentagon, ordered staff to commit crimes and promised pardons if they are prosecuted, claims that no environmental castastophe is too large to deter real estate and fossil fuel development, ordered staff not to comply with congressional overesight, and on and on.
August 29: DOJ refused Trump's order to jail FBI Director James Comey for Trump's false charges of leaking classified information and for informing us that Trump ordered Comey to terminate investigation of Trump's collusion with Russia to win the election. DOJ announced that Comey committed no crime and did not leak classified information, declining criminal prosecution of Comey. Trump's reaction: Comey committed treason. False of course.
August 29: To assist his benefactor, Russia, Trump is planning to withhold $250 million from Ukraine used to protect themselves from Russia.
August 28: Trump ordered his staff to violate federal law and illegally take private property to speed the building of his stupid wall with Mexico. Trump is promising his law breaking staff that he will pardon them if DOJ ever prosecutes them.
August 27: Trump boasted at the G7 that he operates now as he did in business, to lie, cheat, deceive, demean and confuse everyone, not pay his bills and incoherence. But now, Trump hurts billions of people around the world, destabilizing economies, ruining health care, propping up murderous dictatorships, violating laws and the US Constitution, encouraging racism and white supremacists, encouraging domestic terrorism, emboldening ISIS and promising non stop misdeeds against America and the world population. Shame on America.
August 26: Trump can only lie. In France, Trump bragged that his wife, Melania, knew Kim Jong Un very well. Truth....she never met him.
August 26: From the G7 in France, Trump vociferously attacked the US, particularly Barrack Obama, as stupid, dumb, incompetent and bad for the American people. He blamed Obama for Russia's annexation of Crimea. Trump praised the presidents of Russia, Iran and North Korea as far smarter than Obama. African Americans will never meet Trump's low standards.
Trump also bragged that he would lose $3-5 billion as president (far more money than he has).
August 25: To violate the US Constitution and make great profits, Trump has selected one of his properties for the G7 conference next year, and plans to invite his benefactor, Vladimir Putin. Instead of profiteering from only Russia and Saudi Arabia, Trump would rake in millions from many more countries.
For minutes at his G7 press conference, Trump raved about his Doral property for the G7, effectively getting a free multi-million dollar ad for his resort. Just one more crime for Donny.
August 25: "Trump is as destructive a person in this century as Hitler, Stalin and Mao were in the last century. He may be responsible for many more million deaths than they were. He needs to be contained, but he needs to be contained by attacking his policies, not his person." (Allen Francis, chairman of psychiatry at Duke University).
August 25: Trump ordered the Federal Reserve to reduce interest rates...to save him millions of dollars of interest on his $400 million in loans.
August 25: Trump really wants to drop nuclear weapons. He threatened North Korea and Iran. Now, he wants to drop a nuclear bomb in a hurricane, which of course would cause massive devesation to life and environment.
August 25: Surprise, turns out that Trump has been lying about jobs added in the US. Actual jobs added this past year was 500,000 less than he advertised.
August 24: Trump, who appointed himself god 2 days ago, is scared. Tomorrow, the US stock market was poised for massive losses and businesses were poised to be destroyed by his latest escalation in his latest trade war attack against China and his order to companies to terminate business with China. Shelves at Walmart, computer stores, clothing stores and a whole lot more were about to go empty. Prices of remaining items, not made in China, would grow hundreds of times over. The six other countries at the G7 were telling the world Trump is a bozo and no way they would add Russia back to the group as Trump commanded. Trump's failures were about to spin the world far out of control. So, finally, Trump announced he made mistakes. A small step, but huge disaster might be curtailed.
Notable that Trump harms US allies but encourages US foes.
August 23: Trump ORDERED all businesses NOT to business with China. No purchases, no sales. If businesses did this, the US stock market would drop to ZERO.
“Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing...your companies HOME and making your products in the USA.” (Trump)
August 21: Trump announced that he is the "second coming of God. I am the chosen one." Trump also said he was king of Israel, which hasn't had a kind for a thousand years.
The Second Coming is when Jesus Christ will return to earth in fulfillment of His promises and to fulfill the prophecies made about Him. ... The Second Coming is the literal return of Jesus Christ to earth as King in power and glory to rule for a thousand years (Revelation 20:1-6). Many Christian denominations consider this second coming of Christ to be the final and eternal judgment by God of the people in every nation.
August 21: Trump's secretary of state annouonced that there are places where ISIS is stronger now that 3-4 years ago, ie before Trump.
August 21: To endanger their lives more at the hands of more white supremacists with assault weapons, anti-Semitic Trump announced that Jews who vote for Democrats are stupid and disloyal to the US. Jews vehemently disagreed.
Trump parrots Adolf Hitler, "The Jews are not loyal to the state."
Jews are speaking out on Twitter against neo-Nazi Trump, who encourages extinction of Jews via protest rallies and mass murder in synagogues. Please visit (copy and paste this address into your web browser) https://twitter.com/hashtag/DisloyalToTrump?src=hash
August 20: Various studies now show that, under Trump, the US would lose a war with Russia or China. Trump is weakening the US militarily, strategically, economically and morally.
Trump claims that assessement of the economy is a conspiracy against him....by Democrats, the media, several foreign countries also on verge of recession, Federal Reserve, bond market, Fox News, farmers, retailers, manufacturers, economists, Google and consumers....ie everyone but Trump (who is conspiring against the US with Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, his family and white supremacists).
While Trump boasts nothing is wrong with the economy, he wants a payroll tax cut to convince voters that the economy is not worsening. More debt Trump says, bury the US in debt....ie, bury US taxpayers in debt for the rest of time.
Trump has delegated US election security to Russia to steer US elections to white supremacists and to degrade national security of US and its allies.
Trump has diminished the presidency to that of a liar, garbage mouth and racist.
August 16: There is no bottom to Trump's putridity. Last night, another ugly rally against American values. A highlight: Trump stirring his crowd to ridicule someone as being fat and kicking him out of the rally. Much in common with the gladiator colloseum where the crowd cheers the most ugly parts of humanity.
August 15: Israel complied with Trump's direction to refuse entry to 2 non-white members of the US Congress into Israel. Racists united against non-whites. And, reminiscent of when Jews themselves were banned (often a marching cheer of Trump supporters).
Even though Congress approves $10 billion+ in subsidy of Israel (direct aid and loan guarentees) and approves Israel's nuclear weapons, Trump used Israel to relaliate against members of Congress he despises because they are not white!
Trump and Israel think that these 2 non whites are so powerful that they could destroy Israel, hence their excuse for banning them from Israel.
August 14: Trump loves Rep. Steve King, who claims that without rape and incest there would be no population.
August 14: Trump sent his Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services to announce that the Statue of Liberty's symbol and promise for liberty only applies to whites from Europe. To non whites, they say 'cages and abuse awaits'.
August 14: "I soon realized that I couldn’t support him because of the danger he poses to the country, especially the division he sows at every chance, culminating a few weeks ago in his ugly, racist attack on four minority congresswomen. The fact is, Mr. Trump is a racial arsonist who encourages bigotry and xenophobia to rouse his base and advance his electoral prospects. No matter his flag-hugging, or his military parades, he’s no patriot. In front of the world, he sides with Vladimir Putin over our own intelligence community. That’s dangerous. He encouraged Russian interference in the 2016 election, and he refuses to take foreign threats seriously as we enter the 2020 election. That’s reckless. For three years, he has been at war with our federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies, as he embraces tyrants abroad and embarrasses our allies. That’s un-American. He’s reckless on fiscal issues; he’s incompetent on the border; he’s clueless on trade; he misunderstands executive power; and he subverts the rule of law. Trump is unfit for office." (Republican Representative Joe Walsh)
August 13: Trump's piggy bank at work today. Like clockwork, Trump threatens tarrifs, stock market goes down, Trump and his insiders make money. Then, Trump delays tarrifs, stock market goes up, Trump and his insiders make money. Today, once again, he delayed tarrifs....stock market went up significantly. Piggy bank happy with stock market manipulation and insider trading.
August 12: Trump’s proclivity for spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts and outright falsehoods has continued at a remarkable pace. As of Aug. 5, his 928th day in office, he had made 12,019 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database. Lies, hate and racism rule Trump's stable genius brain and mouth. Hence this web site, mouthdung.org.
Today is the two-year anniversary of the Charlottesville massacre, when Trump's white supremacists marched against Jews and non-whites. As intended, Trump's racist supporters have perpetrated several mass murders since against Jews and non-whites. Two years ago, Trump called his white supremacists fine people.
August 12: White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci finally gets it. "Eventually he turns on everyone and soon it will be you and then the entire country...We are now in the early episodes of 'Chernobyl' on HBO, where the reactor is melting down and the apparatchiks are trying to figure out whether to cover it up or start the clean-up process...A couple more weeks like this and 'country over party' is going to require the Republicans to replace the top of the ticket in 2020...He is giving the people a license to hate. His Twitter account incites hate, it incites death threats."
Notable what Trump's trademark attributes are...racist, white supremacist, liar, narcissist, cheat, name caller, bully, fake billionaire, Russian puppet, anti-American.
August 11: Mimicking Trump, sexual assaults in the military have risen sharply.
August 10: Long-time pervert associate of Trump, Jeffrey Epstein, committed suicide after more details of his pedophilia and sex trafficking of underage girls were released. Looks like AG Bill Barr helped Trump again by setting the conditions for Epstein's 'suicide'.
To divert attention away from potentially Epstein's murder to protect Trump and other collaborators in Epstein's sex palaces, Trump announced that Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton murdered Epstein. Once again, when Trump feels guilty, he blames someone else (projection).
August 9: Trump has hardly been more gleeful. Fear pervades out life. A motorcycle backfires in Times Square, everybody runs. A sign drops in a mall, everybody runs. A Mexican or African American in their bed, watching TV or visiting the hospital are prime targets to be shot and killed.
August 9: The Pentagon announced than Trump is strengthening ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Trump of course lies that he has terminated ISIS. Trump always weakens US national security.
August 8: To further degrade US national security, Trump emptied the National Intelligence agency of its 2 top people. Russia is thankful. Not Putin can get Trump elected again easier.
August 8: To destroy more Hispanic families, Trump arrested 700 parents after they dropped their children at school, meaning when the children get out of class, they will learn that they have no parent. Update: indeed, the children cried, pleading for their parents stolen by Trump
August 8: After often attacking China for adjusting the price of its money, Trump ordered the Federal Reserve to weaken the dollar, ie illegally manipulate US currency. Hopefully, the Federal Reserve will ignore his orders just as other federal agencies have often done. If they follow his orders, the US destruction would hasten.
August 8: Trump went to Dayton and El Paso yesterday. Not to console anyone, not to address the communities. Not to attempt to fix the problem. Not to be an American. Instead, Trump went, keeping out of sight of the communities, to attack the communities, brag how great he is and most of all to film election campaign videos about how great he is....at hundreds of thousands of dollars of US taxpayer expense. White supremacists were fortified and their extremism on the Internet and violence will go on.
August 7: Trump is raising government US flags from half staff to full staff as a shout out to his neo-Nazi supporters tomorrow, August 8, or 8/8, a reference to Heil Hitler (88). They love this guy.
August 6: Japan, Uraguay and Venezuela warned its citizens against travel to Trump's white supremacist country. You could be killed too for being non white.
August 6: There are growing signs that something truly horrific is about to happen in Hong Kong. Trump has essentially given China’s rulers a green light to crush the pro-democracy protests. (Washington Post)
August 6: Because Obama said, "We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments," Trump attacked him. Trump can't stand an African American saying such a thing. Trump uses racism as a tool to induce murder of non whites and to feed a climate of fear and hatred.
August 6: In addition to weakening US national security, Trump is weaking an array of other protections, eg, under Trump, FDA appoved May 2019 the most expensive drug in the world, $2.1 million per dose, based on fraudulent data. Fraud rules now.
August 6: To encourage expansion of white supremacist terrorism Trump eliminated approx. 90% of the federal budget to fight it. And, he has placed thousands of ads on Facebook using the same language against Hispanics that the El Paso killer did in his manifesto. Clearly, regardless of what he reads seemingly at gun point from teleprompters, Trump wants white supremacy and their terrorism to grow as a stragegy to win the 2020 election. Killing Hispanics along with Russian assistance (against which he will not fight on behalf of America), Trump sees victory.
August 5: Trump's stock market manipulation reaps massive rewards for his family and friends. On one pendulum swing, Trump threatens China and so the stock market goes down (today, DOW declined nearly 1,000 points to close 767 points lower). Next, he swings the pendulum to dropping his threat and the stock market goes up. He knows when its happening, so he and his friends time their short and long trading. A few make billions, the general public loses billions.
August 5: Trump graced us with his fake concern over the mass killings targeting non-whites. He sent his empty thoughts and prayers to TOLEDO. The Ohio murders were in Dayton. And, Trump blamed the 22 murders, the deadliest mass murder of Hispanics in US history, on video games, ignoring the killer's manifesto parroting Trump's attacks against Hispanics and the killer's own words to police. White supremacist continue to find their leader with Trump and know that Trump inspired the pulling of the trigger over and over to kill 22 and injure 22. They are thrilled that Trump is putting Hispanics in cages, taking their children, raping and killing them and blaming them for everything.
Trump has made white supremacist terrorism the dominant terrorism in the US.
August 5: Now that Trump has weakened US national security, the Supreme Court, the federal courts, Congress and American values, Trump announced he wants to weaken the US dollar.
August 5: Only one Republican has spoken out against Trump's immigrant assassinations. State Senator John McCollister of Nebraska. "The Republican Party is enabling white supremacy in our country. As a lifelong Republican, it pains me to say this, but it’s the truth. I of course am not suggesting that all Republicans are white supremacists nor am I saying that the average Republican is even racist. What I am saying though is that the Republican Party is COMPLICIT to obvious racist and immoral activity inside our party. We have a Republican president who continually stokes racist fears in his base. He calls certain countries “shitholes,” tells women of color to “go back” to where they came from and lies more than he tells the truth. We have Republican senators and representatives who look the other way and say nothing for fear that it will negatively affect their elections. No more. When the history books are written, I refuse to be someone who said nothing. The time is now for us Republicans to be honest with what is happening inside our party. We are better than this and I implore my Republican colleagues to stand up and do the right thing. We all like to cite Abraham Lincoln’s Republican lineage when it is politically expedient but NOW is the time to ACT like Lincoln and take a stand."
America is under attack. From Trump, from Trump's Russian benefactors and from Trump's white supremacists. And from Trump's campaign donors that fund Trump's white supremacy and murders, rapes and family devesations of non-whites.
Almost all terrorism in the US comes from Trump's most feverish supporters, white supremacists. He stokes them, encourages them and applauds them. Why? To kill as many non-whites as possible to help him get elected.
August 3: Another Trump-inspired mass murderer, 21 years old, killed at least 22 and injured 22 in El Paso. Trump-trained to hate immigrants. "Send them back", Trump's creed, was featured in the killer's manifesto, as was Trump's "invasion" of Hispanics. The killer wanted to kill as many Hispanics as he could as called for by his leader, Trump. Last week, another Trump white supremacist committed mass murder. White supremacists emboldened by Trump is America's largest terrorism threat by far. (3 mass shootings in 8 days)
Another mass murder occurred in Dayton. 9 dead, 16 injured. Terrorism kills, Trump applauds.
Update: Trump sent his fake prayers while encouraging white supremacists elsewhere in the world.
August 2: To assist Russia's development of nuclear weapons against the US, Trump canceled the US treaty with Russia signed by Ronald Reagan in the 1980s that banned such development. Trump will help his mother Russia and harm the US any way he can.
August 1: Trump supports North Korea's launch of multiple rockets to improve its system of attacking South Korea, a US ally and where the US has military bases and tens of thousands of US soldiers. Why not? Trump supports anyone who attacks the US, eg Russia and Saudi Arabia. He threatens US allies and NATO. Traitor.
July 31: From The White House Trump announced that people living in Baltimore and not human and living in hell...his view of African Americans and where they live.
July 30: Trump gave a speech in Jamestown, VA to energize his racist followers for his racist 2020 campaign, applauding the 400-year anniversary of bringing slaves to America, specifically Jamestown, VA. Long live racism.
July 30: When he fumes about what others know about him, Trump projects his crimes toward others. Today, Trump announced that Rep. Elijah Cummins stole billions from taxpayers and that The Washington Post is an asset of Russia. Obviously, Trump has and is.
July 28: Another Trump white supremacist, 19 years old, perpetrated a mass shooting terrorist attack, killing 3 and injuring 12. A 6 year old boy and a 13 year old girl were killed.
July 28: Trump fired the Director of Nationa Intelligence for protecting the US, and replaced Dan Coates with a pro-Russian anti-American. Trump's cabinet is now mostly filled with incompetents, criminals and traitors. The disintegration of US national security continues.
July 27: Because Baltimore is 65% African American, Trump attacked Baltimore as rat infested, disgusting and announced that no human would want to live there. Trump does not consider African Americans humans. Racists and white supracists adore him.
"Trump sees attacking African American members of Congress as good politics, as it both warms the cockles of the white supremacists who love him and causes so many of the thoughtful people who don’t to scream. This is a president who will happily debase himself at the slightest provocation. We would tell the most dishonest man to ever occupy the Oval Office, the mocker of war heroes, the gleeful grabber of women’s private parts, the serial bankrupter of businesses, the useful idiot of Vladimir Putin and the guy who insisted there are “good people” among murderous neo-Nazis that he’s still not fooling most Americans into believing he’s even slightly competent in his current post. Or that he possesses a scintilla of integrity. Better to have some vermin living in your neighborhood than to be one." (Baltimore Sun response to racist Trump)
July 26: In his third year, all-powerful Trump keeps blaming Obama. Today, Trump's attacked Obama for the air conditioning system installed in the West Wing. Trump announced also that he wants Obama investigated for being President of the US and for writing a book. African Americans always are criminals and inferior to Trump...according to Trump. Actually, it's the other way around.
July 24, 2019: A sickening day it was. A Special Counsel testified wearing a straight jacket, constrained by training, his ex bosses and a severely limited mandate for his investigation (eg, he never looked into corrupt Trump money flow or tax/business fraud). His citizen opinions which should have nurtured more than most from a strong career capped with two-year immersion in the ugliness of Trump and Russia were few. Mueller displayed little patriotism other than noting, faintly murmuring actually, that too little is being done to combat Russia and other foreign adversaries to elect the president. What about the crimes, corruption, lies, immorality, attacks against America? Republicans, transformed by Trump into fake republicans, attacked Mueller relentlessly, caring nothing about America, the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, truth and the rule of law and defending Trump's dream (nightmare to true Americans) that he can commit any crime and immorality he wants without penalty. Their congressional power to reward their corporate enablers is that powerful. Democrats, prepared in part for their questioning, delayed again what must be done NOW, revitalize America and terminate Trump's treasonous tyranny. Again and again, and again today, Americans and America keep getting trivialized by do-little prosecutors, politicians and media. Shameful. Imagine if George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln acted like this. Alas, decisive leadership is lacking now. And by the time Trump completes a second term, also made possible by foreign adversaries and gullible voters falling for their plans, America will find itself overwhelmed by China, divorced from Europe, competing with several new terrorist governments with nuclear weapons, constrained by Russia, on the brink of a second civil war and with shredded visionary values thought to be immortalized 250 years ago, America no longer the shining city on a hill or beacon of freedom. America's glory will be relegated to history books.
July 24: Mueller testified that he fears that Trump's collusion with Russia against the US has become the new normal. If so, the US is over.
July 24: Mueller testified that knowingly accepting foreign assistance during a presidential campaign is a crime. This is exactly what Trump did, a crime.
July24: Mueller testified that Trump's sworn written answers were not truthful, but to litigate them would contradict his charge to finish his report.
July 24: Mueller testified that Russia is interfering in the US "as we sit here" now, and threatens to help Trump again in the 2020 election. But, Trump welcomed it, keeps inviting it and needing Russia for re-election. Russia advertised and marketed Trump, and got what they paid for.
Trump praised one of Russia's conduits, Wikileaks, which was called by Trump's CIA Director/Secretary of State a hostile foreign operation.
JULY 24: MUELLER TESTIFIED THAT HE WOULD HAVE INDICTED TRUMP IF HE WAS NOT PRESIDENT.
July 24: Robert Mueller testified, under oath, that he did not address collusion, that he charged 30 defendants and 7 convictions, he did not exonerate Trump and his report did not say that Trump did not obstruct justice, there were multiple acts (10) by Trump to obstruct justice, could not say Trump did not obstruct justice and that he did not indict Trump because of an Office of Legal Counsel opinion that a sitting president cannot be indicted, that Trump could be indicted after he leaves office, Trump was not exculpated of crimes, his Russia investigation is/was not a witch hunt or hoax as falsely marketed by Trump, Trump refused to be interviewed even after a year of trying, Trump exemplified corrupt conduct, Trump told Attorney General Jeff Sessions to un-recuse himself and take over the Mueller investigation to shield Trump, Trump told Sessions that "you are supposed to protect me," Russia interfered in the election to benefit Trump and Trump believed he would benefit from Russia's interference, Trump repeatedly directed White Counsel Don McGahn to fire Mueller which exemplified obstruction of justice, Trump directed his staff secretary Ron Porter to lie about Trump's directives to McGahn to fire Mueller, and when Trump was notified about Mueller's May 2017 appointment as Special Counsel to investigate Russia's election interference, Trump fell back and said, "I'm fucked."
Trump's mantra, "No obstruction, no collusion," is a lie, refuted by Mueller and yet another example of obstruction of justice.
Trump could not and cannot win an election without Russia. (and white supremacists)
Mueller recovered $42 million from conviction of Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, virtually covering all costs of Mueller's investigation.
July 24: Trump is exploding with panic at Robert Mueller's testimony to Congress. Tweets galore from the fake gold Mr. Crime. Attacks, blame, name calling, whining, defamation, slander, lies, extreme paranoia, false conspiracy theories and contrived allegations against Congress and his own Dept. of Justice for investigating Russia's interference with US elections, knowing that Russia, assisted by his collusion, got him elected and is hacking again to get him elected again. So weak, so scared, so guilty. Someday again, the US will have fair elections and integrity in The White House and a President who is not a traitor.
July 24: Trump has already added $2 trillion to US debt, and his new 'budget' will add one more. Taxpayers, especially our children, will have to bail out Trump's transfer of all this money to corporations and billionaires. Trump is devastating the poor and middle class financially and everyone morally.
Republicans use to rail against debt. But, Trump's fake republicans are as addicted as he is, of course at others' expense.
July 23: Trump announced he can commit any crime he wants.
July 23: The FBI Director announced that there were 100+ 'domestic terrorist' incidents already in 2019, mostly by white supremacist. Trump's anti-American army accepts its Trump marching orders....attack America.
The FBI Director also testified that Russia is still attacking the US and US elections. Trump invites it, encourages it and profits from it.
July 22: Trump announced his desire to kill 10 million people in one week in Afghanistan as he removes the country from existence. Of course, they are non-whites. Trump seeks to remove any non-white country from the face of the earth. No wonder white supremacists adore and obey him.
Trump and his white supremacists are in panic mode. In less than 25 years, whites will become a minority in the US. They fear not owning non-whites and being treated the way they treat non-whites.
July 19: Trump declared that most Americans are anti-American. Against racism? Trump says you are anti-American. Against cheating and fraud? Trump says you are anti-American. Against tax evasion? Trump says you are anti-American. Want functional health insurance? Trump says you are anti-American. Complaining about government inaction regarding infrastructure? Trump says you are anti-American. Trump says you are anti-American. Want not to be eliminated by the wealthy? Trump says you are anti-American. Want a profitable farm without taxpayer subsidy? Trump says you are anti-American. Want the best in national security and election integrity? Trump says you are anti-American. Want families to stay together? Trump says you are anti-American. Want religious freedom? Trump says you are anti-American. The only way to be pro America for Trump is to be pro Trump.
July 19: Trump announced from the Oval Office that those who perform racist chants at his rallies are patriots. Certainly, not American patriots.
If news coverage of Trump's rallies were in black and white, he would look and sound like Hitler.
Again and again, Trump proves that if you are a celebrity you can lie, commit adultery, sexually assault, cheat, rape, murder, market racism, steal, break the law and teach our children is it ok.
July 18: Court documents proved that Trump directed and coordinated a criminal conspiracy to silence a porn star regarding his adultery with her, a crime for which Michael Cohen was sent to prison for 3 years.
July 18: Trump is a disaster for US national security. He continues to invite from Russia interference in US elections, is promoting nuclear proliferation, will not fight cybersecurity threats, is devestating the EPA, ignores the disasters of climate change, has removed Cabinet Secretaries leaving government departments rudderless, routinely attacks the FBI and CIA as enemies of the people, and has rolled back numerous programs that were created after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks to help detect and avoid incidents involving weapons of mass destruction (including firing 100+ nuclear scientists).
July 18: As usual, Trump turned his rally lastnight into ugliness, stirring raucus racist chants against non-white women in Congress. Trump and his crowd screamed to deport them to where they came. Never mind, most were born in the US, another here since the age of 12 AND a US citizen. This is Trump's election strategy, racism. The fake Republicans in Congress agree. Damn what America stands for. Deport America their wish.
July 17: Armed with and by Vladimir Putin, Trump is breaking America. Putin's golden boy perfected his golden touch. Putin and Trump have raised the ugliness of racism and white supremacy, antisemitism, greed and fraud, mass-produced lies, corruption, legitimization Kim Jong Un (Trump even has placed a picture of this mass murderer presiding over a starving country on a wall in The White House) and more to break the US government, convince a third of Americans that it's better to live under Russia than America, obliterate the Republican Party, ruin the lives and families of non-whites, add massive debt for Americans to pay for decades if not forever, defame the US Constitution, degrade the Supreme Court, weaken NATO, assault national security, promote nuclear weapons in Iran and Saudi Arabia to explode the mideast and threaten Israel, elevate despots, undermine journalism and more. Amazingly, their weapon....not guns, not missiles, not armies, not air forces. But instead, social media, particularly Twitter and Facebook. On them, Trump parrots Putin's 'Trojan army' of conspiracy theories, white supremacy and assault of the glorious fabric of America. Cheap and efficient....but most hazardous to the environment (natural, cultural, political, rule of law, truth, democracy). A few weeks ago, Trump even transformed July 4 from a celebration of independence to one of dependence. Lies are replacing truth in numbers and value. Children are being taught to bully, sexually assault girls, cheat, steal, blame the innocent, that America is no good, get away with committing crimes, consider knowledge as bad, families are useless, destroy the environment...anything to disrupt America's glory. Inded, elections have consequences, especially when fraudulent.
A core passion of Trump is to destroy Obama's record because he is non-white, was not a white-supremacist, would not join with Russia and North Korea, opposed foreign interference with US elections, promoted health care and infrastructure and diversity, and endeavored to limit nuclear weapon proliferation.
July 17: Trump announced he is enjoying tearing the country apart.
July 16: Trump, the leading hater of Jews, likes to call others anti-Semitic. HOWEVER, Trump applauded the white supremacists in Charlottesville marching in a long line carrying tiki torches, chanting "Jews will not replace us" and threating their genocide.
July 16: Speaking for Trump, the White House announced that elected non-white representatives in congress represent "the dark underbelly of this country...a ver dark element in this country...we are sick and tired of many people in this country." Clearly, Trump's racism is his official policy and how he markets the US to the world....the US is racist by official government policy. Shameful.
July 15: "I believe that what this president has done to our culture, to our civic discourse ... you cannot unring these bells and you cannot unsay what he has said, and you cannot change that he has now in a very short time made it seem normal for schoolboy taunts and obvious lies to be spun out in a constant stream. I think this will do more lasting damage than Richard Nixon's surreptitious burglaries did." (George Will)
"Trump is a racist." (George Conway)
July 14: "Every one of us at some point, or virtually all of us, can trace our roots to what Trump has called shithole countries." (Thomas Friedman) Everytime Trump goes outside the US, he boasts that the United States is a shithole country with the worst government and laws in the world. Trump boasts he is in love with the world's cruelest dictators and adores his love letters with them. He wants, needs, what they have. Absolute authority with a license to kill at whim. He hates America and Americans.He loves dictators and white supremacists. America be damned, replaced by Trumpland.
July 14: Yet another addictive dose of Trump racism today, claiming that non-white Democrats in Congress are NOT American citizens and that they should go home. Non-whites were in America hundreds of years before Trump's supreme whites.
Update: Trump spent the rest of the day threatening the lives of 4 members of Congress, encouraging his supporters to attack non-whites.
July 14: Trump's raids against Hispanic families living, typically for years, in the US begin today. Trump's swat teams and prison guards will terrorize them, arrest them, handcuff them, jail them, abuse them, rape them, starve them, murder them. While racists cheer for Trump's supremacy, cries and screams will deplore across America. Expected targets: thousand of families split apart in New York, Baltimore, Chicago, Atlanta, New Orleans (under water from Hurricane Barry), Miami, Houston, Denver, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
Trump, on TV and radio, has called his daughter a voluptuous piece of ass who he kisses as often as he can, that he would know if she had breast implants, that he has no age limit for girls he would have sex with and he lost his virginity at 14, that he has had sex with three women simultaneously and believes everyone has, that he will grab a women's genitals because he can do whatever he wants, that he would have sex with his beauty pageant contestants and that he went backstage to see them naked. He has long marketed his daughter as a sex object.
We are living, alas, in the Dumptyan Era
Where scandals erupt by the hour.
They stir a recurring and queasy sensation
A virus infecting the health of the nation,
Brought on by a toxic and foul combination
Of money, perversion, and power.
(John Lithgow, from his book to release in October, Dumpty, the Age of Trump in Verse)
July 13: Under Trump, Russia is arming Turkey (a member of NATO) with missiles to defend Turkey....certainly not from Russia but from the US.
July 13: There was another common denominator between Trump and Epstein beyond addiction to young women/girls, illicit greet and evading prosecution for crimes....they both have/had attack dog Alan Dershowitz, self appointed master lawyer and apologist for both. Dershowitz also despises the US federal government and claim that it has no rights, even though both Trump and Epstein relied upon the government for their wealth. One of the girls, so far, says Epstein awarded her to him for sex on Epstein's private Caribbean island known as 'pedophile island'.
Both Trump and Epstein illegally pay witnesses and victims hundreds of thousands of dollars to shut up about their sex crimes. Dershowitz says that Epstein paid his young victims tens of millions of dollars.
July 12: Another corrupt criminal left Trump's Cabinet, Alex Acosta, ex Secretary of Labor. He enabled a mass pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein and degraded Epstein's victims. Um.....sounds like Trump.
July 12: Of course he lives in Trump Tower in Chicago. R. Kelly, another mass pedophile was arrested again last night. Trump and Kelly 'hang'....“I reached out to R. Kelly and said ‘R, you have the most beautiful voice I have ever heard, and we are going to make the greatest diss track ever written by a human, I guarantee it,” Trump said.
July 11: Trump filled a the White House lawn with dozens of Russian agents to rail against US journalism and pump them up to attack America more and more. The clan...the most vile social media agents he could find, those that invent conspiracies against US government agencies, media, scientists, academics and Democrats. Put on your seat belts for the putrid defilements Russia, Trump and their social media agents will unleash for the next election. Lies, fear, racism, crimes and fake conspiracies all they have.
July 11: Clarity. Trump is breaking families, kidnapping children, raping, and killing non-whites in order to assure greater impact of white supremacist voters for election of Trump and his co-conspirators against America.
July 10: Today, with the thrill of a New York ticker tape parade, we celebrate Trump's loss to the US Women's soccer team (now world champions for the forth time), and specifically the team's co-captain, Meagan Rapinoe, who Trump viciously attacked for representing the US, equality for women and the LGBTQ community so well. What a weak loser Trump is.
July 10: Trump has rented for this Saturday his exclusive golf club in Miami to a strip bar, Shadow Cabaret, which will allow golfers to pay for a dancer to serve as their “caddy girl”.
Trump hosted an exclusive party with Jeffrey Epstein at his Mar-a-Lago estate. It was just the 2 of them and '28 girls' flown in for a "calendar girl" competition that was requested by Trump. Caught with 'his pants down', Trump now claims he doesn't know Epstein.
July 8: Nuclear weapons in Iran. Thanks to Trump. By REMOVING agreement with Iran to NOT do this, Iran announced today it is doing it. Trump will no anything to degrade US and global security.
July 7: Diplomatic cables sent from the United Kingdom's ambassador to the United States back to London describe Trump as "inept," "insecure" and "incompetent," a UK government official confirmed.
July 7: “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy. He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side.” - Donald Trump, 2002. Last night, Jeffrey Epstein was arrested for sex trafficking and assault of dozens of young girls, committed between 2002 and 2005 (In New York and Florida, Epstein paid girls as young as 14 for sex and to procure other young girls for sex for his multi-state and -national sex web). Years ago, Epstein was convicted in 2008 of soliciting prostitution. However, Trump's Labor Secretary (Alexander Acosta) did not prosecute Epstein for his sex crimes in federal court, endearing to Trump for selection as Labor Secretary. Other Trump pals have also been arrested for sex crimes (eg, Robert Kraft, owner of New England Patriots, has an odd sex practice - driving to a strip mall in his limousine to visit prostitutes, for which he is now awaiting trial but actively engaged with Trump). During all this, Trump went on radio to brag about his sexual desires for his young daughter, Ivanka (and sexually assaulted several women).
Trump was accused of molesting a 13 year old girl in Epstein's Manhattan house (9 East 71st Street) in 1994. Trump went to a party with Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire who was a notorious registered sex offender, and raped a 13-year-old girl that night in what was a "savage sexual attack," according to a lawsuit filed in June 2016 by "Jane Doe." The account was corroborated by a witness in the suit, who claimed to have watched as the child performed various sexual acts on Trump and Epstein even after the two were advised she was a minor. "Immediately following this rape Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trump's sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I would be physically harmed if not killed," Jane Doe wrote in the lawsuit, filed in New York. The lawsuit was dropped in November 2016, just four days before the election, with Jane Doe's attorneys citing "numerous threats" against her.
This new prosecution, formally indicted today, is being handled by the Public Corruption Division of DOJ, meaning someone in government collaborated with Epstein's crimes.
How many rape parties did Trump attend at Epstein's homes? How many government officials were involved as participants or as providers of coverups? To be determined.
UPDATE: Trump praised Acosta for his role to NOT prosecute Epstein for sexually assaulting 80+ young girls. Trump endorses Acosta's endorsement of rape of 14 year old girls and will keep Acosta in charge of federal non-protection of victims of sexual assault.
Said Epstein, "I want to set up my modeling agency the same way Trump set up his modeling agency." Young girls and money were their driving forces.
July 4: Defaming America on its 243rd birthday, the ridiculous flaming idiot presented from inside a dripping wet foggy plastic box a speech delivered like a third grader. Choppy paragraphs seemingly written by a fifth grader low in his class. The speech cost more than $100,000 to write. Pointless bullets hastily copy-and-pasted from the Internet focused on US soldiers killing people, Trump rambled what the teleprompters said about America like a firing squad was behind him. Two tanks in front of him, military officers ordered to be there or else and war planes and helicopters circling in flight, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in fuel awaiting their cue to fly over the ridiculous, weak, self-described "stable genius" commander in chief while he puffed his chest like an eight grader trying to show he is strong. The world laughed. Putin and Kim Jong Un grinned at the flaming idiot. They are pleased at winning. Most Americans were dismayed at the $100 million spectacle defaming America.
An example of Trump's 'stable genius' during the speech. "Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket's red glare it had nothing but victory." Um....George Washington crossed the Delaware against the British in 1776. The Ft. McHenry battle occurred in 1812 and the Battle of Baltimore in 1814 (during which the Star Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key), a hundred years before planes or airports were invented. The Wright brothers didn't fly until 1903; eventually producing the first US warplane in 1909. The Army didn't get planes until 1919.
July 4: Representative Justin Amash, who called for Trump's removal from office, quit the Republican Party. "Growing up, I thought a lot about the brilliance of America. Our country’s founders established a constitutional republic uniquely dedicated to securing the rights of the people. In fact, they designed a political system so ordered around liberty that, in succeeding generations, the Constitution itself would strike back against the biases and blind spots of its authors. Today, I am declaring my independence and leaving the Republican Party. No matter your circumstance, I’m asking you to join me in rejecting the partisan loyalties and rhetoric that divide and dehumanize us. I’m asking you to believe that we can do better than this two-party system — and to work toward it. If we continue to take America for granted, we will lose it."
July 4: A prayer for this July 4. That America declares independence from Trump's tyrannical assault against America and his glorification of lies, racism, cruelty against non-whites, corruption, murderous dictators, destruction of democracy and undermining US national security, the US Constitution, the US government and 'we the people'.
Trump's disgusting self-celebration is costing over $100 million. Non-racist Americans are not allowed access. Fences have been installed to keep them away from Trump space, reserved for mega donors and anti-American co-collaborators in Congress, one happy anti-American family. As a campaign event, the debacle is criminal.
"There you have it. A taxpayer- funded campaign ad. Your tax dollars coopted for the benefit of a man whose idea of public service is the public serving him. Tens of millions effectively given to the Trump Campaign. This is what it was all about. This and revenue for his hotel." (Government Ethics Chief)
July 3: The Russian troll farms that carried out a sophisticated disinformation campaign on U.S. social media platforms in 2016 on behalf of Trump influenced Trump's standing in public opinion polls. Researchers at the University of Tennessee said that for every 25,000 retweets each week by the Russian Internet Research Agency (IRA), Trump's poll numbers would gain an increase of about 1 percent. "We find that changes in opinion poll numbers for one of the candidates were consistently preceded by corresponding changes in IRA re-tweet volume, at an optimum interval of one week before," the researchers wrote, referring to Trump. "As these tweets were part of a larger, multimedia campaign, it is plausible that the IRA was successful in influencing U.S. public opinion in 2016." Twitter has catalogued and released data that contained more than 9 million tweets stemming from the activity of 3,613 IRA-linked accounts, including roughly 800,000 English language tweets that were sent out during the 2016 campaign.
July 3: Trump taking credit for homelessnes? Trump announced that homelessness began only 6 months after he took office.
July 2: Trump is using a secret Facebook group of 9,500 deviates to ridicule, threaten and organize attacks against non-white children AND Hispanic members of Congress. They are proud of a picture they created showing Trump forcing Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to perform oral sex. They create pictures of their pride in seeing dead children floating on the Rio Grand River, accompanied with the most file commentary imaginable. Trump is thrilled at this face of the US being marketed to the world.
July 2: One thing that Trump as not ruined, the longest run economic expansion in many decades, 2009-present, created by Barrack Obama (elected 2008).
July 2: So weak, immature and in need to flash his manhood, Trump is using the 4th of July celebration to celebrate himself and his transformation of the US into a militant, racist country determined to abuse, rape, torture and murder non-whites and to degrade its national security, rule of law and morality. For the first time, Trump is militarizing the 4th of July with tanks and diverse other military equipment much like those he admires and seeks to emulate, dictators from Russia, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
What Trump is doing is wreathing himself in the most potent symbols of American history—delivering a speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, site of the 1963 March on Washington, looking across at a landscape of monuments—without any appreciation for the history that made that whole landscape possible. Perhaps uniquely among American presidents, he sees himself without any connection to the American story, any link to presidents past, other than his manifest superiority to any of them. Someone who can say of himself that he has been treated worse than any president in history—four of whom were assassinated—has an impressively unique understanding of his own role in the American story, to say the least. (Jeff Greenfield)
Trump is abusing July 4 by converting its celebration into an election campaign event, giving prime tickets to his favorite Republicans only....AT US TAXPAYER EXPENSE AS USUAL.
June 30: By way of his son, Trump has begun 'birthism' against Kamela Harris to degrade her and her presidential campaign, falsely claming that she is not black enough, is half Indian and half Jamaican, and was not born in the US. As usual, Trump is nothing but lies.
Trump loves dictators because they hate liberalism. His favorite dictators, mass murderers like Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Mohammed bin Salmon, with whom he shares love letters. Trump is desperately trying to add Iran's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei. They all say liberalism is obsolete, dead, an enemy of the people. But, liberalism is not the Democratic Party. Liberalism is not confined to political liberals. Liberalism is personal, religious, racial/ethic and press freedom. It is equality before the law. It is democracy. It realizes that government can pose a threat to liberty and justice. It is America. Liberalism liberates from oppression. Notably, the US Declaration of Independence and Constitution are liberating documents. Trump and is fellow dictators despise all of this, and is why they undermine America and they collaborate against US national security and freedom.
June 29: Trump announced it would be fun to step foot in North Korea, where 5 million were killed in the Korean war 1950-1953, including 40,000 Americans. He has to hug his number 2 boy friend and share love letters in person. Update: Trump did it, stepped into North Korea, the world's largest prison camp, to futher elevate Kim Jong Un and degrade the US.
June 28: Jimmy Carter concluded that Trump is illegitimate. "There's no doubt that the Russians did interfere in the election. And I think the interference, although not yet quantified, if fully investigated would show that Trump didn't actually win the election in 2016. He lost the election and he was put into office because the Russians interfered on his behalf."
June 27: To keep pleasing Putin, in person while on television, Trump trashed his oath of office and the US Constitution...inviting continuing Putin interference with US elections and praising Putin's capacity to murder journalists. Trump will not preserve, protect and defend the US and its Constitution from Putin's campaign against the US. Like Putin, Trump sees protecting the US and press is a joke.
Putin's grin gets bigger and bigger. He has ruination of America in his sights. A few pieces of gold was all it took for the 'gold man' in The White House.
June 26: Trump announced that Robert Mueller is a criminal. Of course, no evidence, a zero-page report with zero support. In contrast, Mueller published a 450 page report of Trump's crimes supported by the FBI, CIA and 1,000+ federal criminal prosecutors.
June 26: Trump announced that his discussions, negotiations, collusion, business deals and trashing US national security with Vladimir Putin in Japan this weekend is not the business of the American people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
June 25: Now, the American Bar Association says Trump is a criminal. The American Bar Association (ABA) condemned conditions at detention centers holding immigrant children, calling them violation of law and common decency. "The ABA calls on federal authorities to immediately end this inhumane and illegal treatment of children and provide attorney access to facilities operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. And we call on the administration to enforce laws and settlements that guarantee humane, minimal standards of care for vulnerable children, no matter how they arrived in our country. The American Bar Association is appalled by credible reports of hundreds of children being held in unsafe and unhealthy conditions in violation of federal and state law, court settlements and common decency."
Resulting from Trump's plan, many children have been starved, abused, raped and killed in Trump's custody.
Shame on all who endorse Trump.
June 25: Genius Trump announced sanctions against Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Take that, says Trump, for shooting down a US drone a few days ago. The problem...he died in 1989, 30 years ago.
Is rape an impeachable offense? Is bragging about grabbing women's genitals? Is bragging about wanting to date your daughter and her body? Trump supporters say no.
June: Trump is doing everything possilbe to make dictators, lies, crimes, corruption, fraud and tax evasion, crushing debt, white supremacy, sexual assault, broken families, child abuse and undermining national security rule the US.
Trump promised the best and brightest people in his cabinet. The result: most have been indicted, dismissed for corruption or refusing to follow Trump's orders to violate the law or left in disgust of Trump. The remaining are waiting their turn.
Illegal to perpetrate against Alkaeda and ISIS terrorists, Trump is sytematically torturing, raping, starving and killing young children he keeps in cages without beds, soap, toothbrushes and separated from their parents.
June 23: Trump announced his genocidal intention against Iran, killing millions...“it'll be obliteration like you've never seen before.” Likewise, Trump is determined in genocide of Hispanics. Non-whites are not safe or free in Trump's world.
June 21: Trump sexually assaulted many women, the 16th of whom shared her story of rape by Trump. Trump claimed he never met her. However, pictures of them together show otherwise, including one of her wearing his coat according to Trump. Trump's defense...she is "not his type" for raping.
June 21: Trump is so gushy over Kim Jong Un. Trump admires his capacity to murder, torture and starve. Even more dear, Trump brags about his beautiful and warm letters from his heart throb Kim. So precious what Kim wrote this week, Trump threated a Time Magazine reporter with prison should he publish his photographs of Kim's letter, which Trump showed off to a room full of Time journalists. Note: all the letter said was Happy Birthday.
Like he did with Kim Jong Un, ie threaten annihilation until Kim sent love letters to Trump, Trump is threatening Iran with annihilation until someone in charge in Iran sends him love letters. Trump needs love letters from powerful men (like Vladimir Putin).
During the 2016 campaign, Trump often spoke about sexual contact with his male competitors in the election.
June 21: "The most damaging evidence ever compiled against a sitting U.S. president."
June 18: Trump officially launched his re-election bid with a typical racist rally, announcing that he is running against Hillary Clinton...even though she lost in 2016 and is not running for anything herself. And, Trump relied on his preemptive projection, foaming the audience with his hate, prejudice, fake news, rage and fever to destroy everyone, and campaign to destroy our country as we know.
June 18: "Enough of the chaos, the division, the schoolyard insults, the self-aggrandizement, the corruption, and especially the lies. So many lies — from white lies to whoppers — told out of ignorance, laziness, recklessness, expediency or opportunity. According to a Washington Post database, the president has tallied more than 10,000 lies since he took office. Trump insults political opponents and national heroes alike with middle-school taunts. He demonstrates no capacity for empathy or remorse. He misuses his office to punish opponents, as when he recently called for a boycott of AT&T to get even with his least favorite media outlet, CNN. He tears down institutions, once airily suggesting the U.S. should try having a leader for life as China now allows. He seems incapable of learning a lesson, telling an ABC interviewer last week — just two months after Robert Mueller’s report on election interference was released — that he would accept dirt on an opponent from Russia or China. Trump has diminished our standing in the world. He reneges on deals, attacks allies and embraces enemies. This nation must never forget that humiliating public moment in Helsinki in 2018 when the president of the United States chose to accept Vladimir Putin’s denials of Russian interference in the 2016 election over the unanimous assessment of the American intelligence community. The nation must endure another 1½ years of Trump. But it needn’t suffer another four beyond that. We can do better. We have to do better." (Orlando Sentenel Editorial Board)
Trump does not know what reality is, thus truth, humanity and morality have no meaning and transformed to objects of ridicule. It's all a TV game about the bigoted, racist, fraudulent host of the show who compels his audience to cheer against anything good about America. Not only would Trump be sent to prison if he was not president, he would end up with fellow psychopaths removed from the regular prison population.
June 13: Another close Trump advisor, Kellyanne Conway, was found guilty of perpetrating crimes from The White House. Why not? Crime orchestrated by Trump out of The White House is now officially sanctioned US policy.
June 13: Trump provoked Iran to bomb two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman. Here we go. Trump bluster soon to follow, threats of all-out war, to which Iran will send missiles, some possibly nuclear weapons, to Israel.
June 13: In the month of May 2019 alone, even after Trump's taxpayer-funded tariffs, Trump added $208 billion to the US debt for taxpayers to pay. Corporate contributions declined thanks for Trump's tax cuts for the wealthy.
JUNE 13: TRUMP ANNOUNCED THAT HE WILL CONTINUE TO COLLUDE WITH ENEMIES OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST THE UNITED STATES, AND THAT US NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCIES ARE WRONT TO FIGHT OR INVESTIGATE IT. TRUMP IS FULLY OPPOSED TO THE UNITED STATES, THE CONSTITUTION, DEMOCRACY AND AMERICAN VALUES. FOR TRUMP, DECEPTION AND CRIME AND RUINING AMERICA RULE.
Trump announced this treason from the Oval Office of The White House, greenlighting treason for all and destruction of US democracy by enemies of the US.
Response of Federal Election Commission Chair: "Let me make something 100% clear to the American public and anyone running for public office: It is illegal for any person to solicit, accept, or receive anything of value from a foreign national in connection with a U.S. election. This is not a novel concept. Electoral intervention from foreign governments has been considered unacceptable since the beginnings of our nation. Our Founding Fathers sounded the alarm about 'foreign Interference, Intrigue, and Influence.' They knew that when foreign governments seek to influence American politics, it is always to advance their own interests, not America's. Anyone who solicits or accepts foreign assistance risks being on the wrong end of a federal investigation. Any political campaign that receives an offer of a prohibited donation from a foreign source should report that offer to the Federal Bureau of Investigation." Law 52 U.S.C. Section 30121 (a)(2) reads: "It shall be unlawful for a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation... from a foreign national."
Preemptive projection. A Trumpian strategy. To disguise and divert attention from his deep-seated traits, Trump assigns them to others by way of nicknames. Weak, nasty, criminal, crooked, guilty, unstable, lyin', looser, creepy, highly conflicted, animal, no talent, flunky, dope, fat, ugly, crazy, dumbo, swamp-man, the dick, heartless, slime-ball, sneaky, flaky, puppet, wacky, fake, dishonest, failing, angry, colluder, enemy of the people, treasonous.
In deed, Trump is guilty of all of this, along with sexual assault, orchestrating child abuse/rape/murder, breaking families, encouraging violence against non-whites, encouraging bullying, financial and tax fraud, making corruption and lying official US policy, promote terrorism and mass murder, and serial violation of his oath of office and the US Constitution.
June 7: Trump announced something 'huge'. A blockbuster deal with Mexico to stop migrants from entering into the US. Thus, he has terminated forever his tariff threat. Then why does he need his black wall with spikes on top to impale the migrants?
Actually, all this was about Trump manipulating stock prices, making them go down with threat of a tariff and then inspiring their swing back by dropping his threat. Illegal abuse of power for personal gain.
June 7: Blockhead Trump announced that the moon is part of Mars. In fact, the moon orbits Earth about 239,000 miles away. The moon is 33,900,000 miles from earth, and does not orbit earth. No one in the universe agrees with Trump.
Fifty-three percent of surveyed women said they were very unlikely to back Trump while 9 percent said they were somewhat unlikely. Thirty-eight percent of women who participated said they were likely to back Trump. WOW .... how could anyone support a serial sexual assaulter who calls women fat and ugly, someone who boasted of dating his daughter and about her breasts, someone who breaks families, kidnapping their children for cages children (thousands to never be returned to their parent), subjecting them to abuse, rape and death.
June 6: Trump has bilked $100 million+ for personal business expenses from taxpayers, even more egregious than is funding his personal life by his tax-free 'charitable foundation'. The latest corruption is Trump's bill to taxpayers for nearly $1 million to rent 4 cars in Ireland, $233,748 per vehicle, $116,879 per mile.
Trump is transforming the US into the most corrupt country in the world.
June 5: To celebrate D-Day, when 75 years ago there were 22,119 casualties including 2,811 killed, 5,665 missing, 79 prisoners, and 13,564 wounded, Trump attacked Americans and America. Trump, white supremacist, corrupt and anti-American, is replacing slavery as the darkest mark on America.
For criminals and their corrupt defense lawyers there is no such thing as crime except that perpetrated by their victims, police and prosecutors. Crime is Trump's profession and expertise who has yet to earn an honest dollar.
Letters sent from prison by notorious mob boss James "Whitey" Bulger in the last months of his life reveal repeated praise for Trump. Successful criminals adore each other, exemplified by Trump's adoration of the Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un and other murderous dictator criminals.
June 4: Trump praised Borris Johnson as excellent and great future Prime Minister and wanted to meet him. Johnson refused, saying Trump has "quite stupefying ignorance that makes him frankly unfit to hold the office of President of the United States. I wouldn't want to expose Londoners to the unnecessary risk of meeting Donald Trump."
Trump also claimed that he saw no protesters against him, when in fact there were tens of thousands marching with the Trump baby balloon and a new Trump mime, Trump sitting on a toilet with his Twitter phone.
June 4: Trump announced his intention to "do" a trade deal with Prime Minister Theresa May. Any deal would take years to accomplish, especially as Trump stirs the Brexit turmoil. Another glaring problem, May resigns June 7, ie in 3 days. So much for the best deal maker the world has ever seen.
June 3: Trump (the global symbol of white supremacy, sexual assault, corruption, falsely elected, a crybaby, narcissism, tyranny, hate aimed at Mulims and Hispanics, and disregard of the environment, peace, democracy, the rule of law) is in London demanding praise or suffer his mouth and Twitter dung and threats. He attacked the daughter-in-law of the Queen as "nasty' and the Mayor of London as "very dumb." The world-famous Trump crybaby blimp flies high today in London.
The people of England despise Trump. London's Mayor...."Praising the “very fine people on both sides” when torch-wielding white supremacists and antisemites marched through the streets clashing with anti-racist campaigners. Threatening to veto a ban on the use of rape as a weapon of war. Setting an immigration policy that forcefully separates young children from their parents at the border. The deliberate use of xenophobia, racism and “otherness” as an electoral tactic. Introducing a travel ban to a number of predominately Muslim countries. Lying deliberately and repeatedly to the public." Trump is "one of the most egregious examples of a growing global threat."
To please his racist followers, Trump has re-instituted the Roman Colosseum. Hispanic Christians are taken prisoner, caged, families separated, tortured, raped and murdered as spectacle for his fans. His catch is up to 100,000/month after his termination of programs to stem population escape from Central American countries.
If this was not the case, providing 'red meat' to his followers, Trump would send the military to the ultra-small central American countries generating Trump's 'red meat' rather than to North Korea and Iran. In a weekend, Trump could eliminate the villains in those countries, a ragtime band of boys with guns with no tanks, no war planes, no bombs, no nuclear weapons, no armies, no real threat for the US military to terminate. In this way, there would be no need to escape for eventual capture by Trump along the border with Mexico. No need to threaten Mexico. No need to abuse Hispanics. But wait, how would Trump hold his fans together?
For a racist nothing is more important that racism. Morality, US national security, trade, education, conserving American values and environment, rule of law, truth, democracy and the Constitution become objects of ridicule.
May 31: Trump endorsed Kim Jong Un's execution of his negotiators who could not figure out how to deal with Trump. Trump wishes he could execute his staff.
MAY 30: TRUMP ANNOUNCED THAT RUSSIA HELPED HIM GET ELECTED. While we know that his senior campaign officials conspired with Russia often, Trump insists he was not personally involved.
Notably, Trump, Putin, Fox News, congressional 'republicans' all have the same talking points against the US, US national security, the US Constitution, the FBI and Dept. of Justice, and American values.
A month ago, Trump proclaimed that Robert Mueller was an honorable man and that his report was the bible. Today, a day after Mueller endorsed his report on television, Trump spent the morning demeaning Mueller as scum and releasing a dung pile of lies.
It is abysmal that Trump could murder anyone and everyone and do-nothing Republicans at the Dept. of Justice and in Congress would endorse Trump's actions. Trump cannot be indicted, prosecuted or jailed. America is the shame of the world.
May 29: Robert Mueller, for the first time in 2 years, addressed the public about Trump's crimes and obstruction of justice during an 11-minute formal and official statement from the Dept. of Justice. Mueller explained that his report said it all, effectively proving Trump's attacks against Mueller and his report are empty and irrelevant to the facts about Trump's collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice. Mueller noted that from the beginning of his investigation, he knew he was constrained by the Dept. of Justice from charging Trump with crimes while he is president. Mueller repeated that if he could have exonerated Trump he would have. But he could not. Clearly, Trump committed many crimes that can only be 'prosecuted' by the Dept. of Justice after he leaves office or buy Congress by way of impeachment.
Under longstanding Department of Justice policy, Mueller said, "a president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office. Charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider. If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so."
Mueller also established that Russia worked to get Trump elected in many ways, including committing crimes against Hillary Clinton for which Mueller filed dozens of criminal charges.
Mueller also established that Attorney General William Barr lied about Mueller's report. It did not exonerate Trump but instead outlined numerous crimes by Trump.
May 28: Trump is back from an Asia trip, during which he again aligned himself, and by extension the US, with a ruthless dictator against the US. And, Trump excused North Korea's launching ballistic missiles toward Japan. Egregiously, Trump endorsed Kim Jong Un on Memorial Day, trashing the deaths of 34,000 US soldiers killed by Kim's grandfather in the Korean War of the 1950s. Anything a dictator does is endorsed by Trump. Anything done by American patriots is demeaned.
May 24: Trump declared several Americans guilty of treason and subject to death. Robert Mueller, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok and several individuals "higher up" that these 'enemies of the people', and subject to death for defending America. Trump has ordered his corrupt Attorney General to manipulate and distort anything he can find and to endange US national security and American lives to accomplish Trump's firing squad.
May 22: Trump announced that he is on strike and will not perform his duties. He will not work with Congress for infrastructure, health care, the budget....with nothing.
Instead, he continues his collaboration with Putin against the US, including inviting Russian nuclear bombers to threaten the US. Fortunately, at least some in the US military continue to defend the US and turn Russia's bombers away.
Trump demands that Congress violate the Constitution, commit crimes and obstruct justice as he is.
Unquestionably, Putin got Trump elected. Listening to countless Trump voters parrot Putin's advertising and voting for Trump based on Putin's interference, there is no question that Putin got Trump elected. And, after 2 years of denial, the Florida Governor announced that election machines for two counties were hacked. Unquestionably, there are many more voting machine collections that were hacked for Trump.
May 19: Two years ago, Trump threatened to remove North Korea from the planet. Today, he made the same threat against Iran.
May 18: Trump really hates Muslims, pardoning US soldiers anc contractors found guilty of murdering, raping and urinating on Muslims. And, Trump just authorized the murder of Muslims in Afghanistan by air bombs. Trump is making the US the most ruthless country on earth.
Trump also hates Hispanics, ripping families apart, caging and killing the stolen children and sending migrants to what he sees are Democratic cities to burden their expenses and hopefully increase their crime rate.
May 18: An actual Republican in Congress has been found. Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, who has concluded that "Trump has engaged in impeachable conduct," and that AG William Barr is covering up Trump's crimes. "People who say there were no underlying crimes and therefore the president could not have intended to illegally obstruct the investigation—and therefore cannot be impeached—are resting their argument on several falsehoods. n fact, there were many crimes revealed by the investigation, some of which were charged, and some of which were not but are nonetheless described in Mueller’s report. In fact, obstruction of justice does not require the prosecution of an underlying crime, and there is a logical reason for that. Prosecutors might not charge a crime precisely *because* obstruction of justice denied them timely access to evidence that could lead to a prosecution."
May 17: Trump announced his plan to paint his 'wall' black topped with spikes so that non-whites will know that the US means their torture and murder, a land of death and gruesome impalements for them.
Trump math. When he says he is worth billions, actually he lost billions. When he says the trade war will not cost US consumers anything, actually Trump's tariffs will be added taxes to their purchases.
May 12: "The Russia investigation was a legitimate investigation, with a legitimate basis, into how a hostile foreign power tried to interfere with and undermine our democracy. But because you are a malignant narcissist—a person with both narcissistic and antisocial personality disorders—you couldn’t view it that way. Instead of complying with your oath of office, and instead of taking stock of what was in the best interests of the nation whose Constitution and laws you swore to uphold, you viewed the matter purely in terms of your own ego: You viewed the investigation as casting doubt on what you perceive as your great election victory. Even today, despite the well-founded assessments of the intelligence community, and despite the damning evidence laid out in the Mueller report, you refuse to take what the Russians did seriously. It is an offense for which you should pay with your office, regardless of whether you are ultimately brought to justice in the courts of law." (George Conway)
Three years ago, Trump boasted he would quickly and easily fix the world's problems. Instead, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran, North Korea and Venezuela have out-witted him. His boast to reduce US debt was also a lie, instead adding $2 trillion in 2 years for future generations to pay for. Likewise, he has not fixed poverty, health care, infrastructure either. All lies. All the time.
May 11: Trump opposes the ban on female genital mutilation. And, he supports prison and execution of women who have an abortion.
May 10: Trump is in crisis. Not only is he receiving help from Russia, now for several years, Trump is now soliciting aid from Ukraine to interfere with the US and attack Robert Mueller, the FBI and patriotic elements of the DOJ. And, Trump wants Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden's son. Trump's crimes and treason widen.
Finding a corrupt Attorney General, William Barr, who will not prosecute Trump's crimes, Trump is dependent on foreign governments in his campaign against America and the Constitution.
May 10: Trump now has his goldest gold mine. Previously, it was real estate scams, bank fraud, money laundering, IRS fraud and bankruptcies. Now, Trump has a golden insider trading scam....buy stock low and sell high by manipulating stock prices via trade wars, tariffs, industry castigations and promotions, profiting massively by his global crises. No wonder he refuses disclosure of his IRS documents, at least until he can doctor them. No wonder he has sued his banks to prevent them from revealing bank records pertaining to Trump. No wonder the dirty secrets of his crimes in office are now 'executive privilege' and unavailable for constitutional oversight.
May 9: Trump's called the Mueller Report perfect, the Bible, but said it was written by evil enemies of the people. Trump claimed the report totally exonerated him but attacked all of the report's findings and evidence, which demonstrate some of his crimes.
May 9: Trump once again attacked the US vociferously, blaming the US for all the problems in the world, though his tyranny is here to save the day. Yes, Trump emulates Mighty Mouse cartoons from the 1950s.
May 9: With almost every day that passes, Trump is providing a glimpse of how American government might look under a President who disdains the principles and pillars on which it is built. Americans will wake up someday with America in the rear view mirror and tyrannic rule. Trump is steering America toward the dictatorships he admires....Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia.
May 8: Trump encouraged his supporters to MURDER migrants. It's the only way to stop them says Trump. (Trump's encouragement happened merely hours after another mass shooting at a high school.)
May 8: 1,000+ federal prosecutors disagree with DOJ and Trump corruption, and would charge Trump with several crimes of obstruction of justice and witness tampering and intimidation. And, but for Trump's order for destruction of evidence and lying, Trump would be charged with treason.
"We are former federal prosecutors. We served under both Republican and Democratic administrations at different levels of the federal system: as line attorneys, supervisors, special prosecutors, United States Attorneys, and senior officials at the Department of Justice. The offices in which we served were small, medium, and large; urban, suburban, and rural; and located in all parts of our country. The Mueller report describes several acts that satisfy all of the elements for an obstruction charge: conduct that obstructed or attempted to obstruct the truth-finding process, as to which the evidence of corrupt intent and connection to pending proceedings is overwhelming."
May 5: Trump praises liars and cheats, today attacking the Kentucky Derby for disqualifying the winner for cheating.
May 4: Trump spent the day praising white supremacists and anti-Americans that are so vile that Facebook banned them.
May 4: "Dr. King, we have come a distance, we have made some progress, but we still have a great distance to go before we lay down the burden of racism. There have been so many setbacks since you left. We have someone, the head of our government, who, in the finality, is a racist. He doesn’t understand the meaning of your life and the significance of the civil-rights movement." (Representative John Lewis)
From the Mueller Report: "But the evidence does indicate that a thorough FBI investigation would uncover facts about the campaign and the President personally that the President could have understood to be crimes or that would give rise to personal and political concerns." Thorough investigation was prevented by Trump by ordering destruction of evidence, witnesses to lie or refuse testimony, and Trump's own refusal for an interview under oath.
May 3: Trump called his mentor, Putin, to learn more ways to attack Mueller, the DOJ, the FBI, US national security, non-whites and the United States and to urge continuing interference in US elections.
Trump also caved again to Russia, believing Putin over all US officials....Putin claimed that Russia has no role in Venezuela. Never mind they control its president and have 100+ troops there.
Trump is Putin's PR department.
May 2: Inspired by Trump and his success with sexual assault, military sexual assaults have increased 38%: 20,500 cases of unwanted sexual contact in 2018.
Domestic terrorism from white supremacists, murder of non-whites and school bullying are also sharply increasing due to Trump.
According to Trump and Barr, if someone murders their spouse and children it is not a crime unless indicted and convicted. Anything not indicted is acceptable.
May 1: Another day, another Trump infomercial for criminals. Today, Trump sent his corrupt Attorney General to the US Senate to teach criminals how to escape prosecution. Lie, blame the investigators and prosecutors, split hairs, invent conspiracies, call the investigators and prosecutors criminals and call for their imprisonment, and hire corrupt defense lawyers like Trump has with the Attorney General. And, even though Mueller clearly said that his report was not about collusion, claim that the report was all about collusion and exonerated Trump. Even though Mueller outlined egregious interference from Russia in US democracy, claim that it is acceptable to accept aid and stolen assets from Russia in future elections. According to Trump and Barr, there is nothing wrong with Russia controlling the US. Obstruct justice, Congress and truth in every way possible. Violate your oath to preserve, protect and defend the US at all costs.
Barr even testified that 'spying' is not a bad thing. No wonder he exonerates Trump.
Barr testified that Trump cannot be investigated for a crime if he 'feels' he is being falsely subjected to a false accusation. So, Trump can murder anyone or hundreds, commit genocide against non-whites, order a nuclear attack against anyone for any reason, and all he has to say is that he 'feels' he is being falsely accused. Investigation and prosecution get tossed according to Barr. Trump found his ultimate corrupt fixer.
April 30: Robert Mueller firmly disagrees with Trump's corrupt Attorney General, William Barr. Barr said the Mueller report exonerated Trump of crimes. Mueller's response, Barr's report about the Mueller report “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance” of the Mueller report.
April 30: Most terrorist attacks in the US – 70% – are committed by Trump loyalists, white supremacists. The primary targets are Jews, Muslims and African Americans.
April 30: Trump announced via Michael Pompeo, Trump's corrupt Secretary of State, that Trump has assured that Russia will interfere in US elections for many decades. The US is no longer in control of its destiny. Trump has handed critical parts of the US over to Russia and China.
April 30: Trump surpassed 10,000 lies the past 2 years. There is nothing Trump does not lie about. The most famous liar in the world.
April 30: Trump is sponsoring a coup in Venezuela to forcibly remove its president.
April 26: Rod Rosenstein, Deputy Attorney General: "There was overwhelming evidence that Russian operatives hacked American computers and defrauded American citizens" for Trump and against Hillary Clinton, thus securing Trump's election by Russia. Also overwhelming evidence Trump colluded, defrauded voters, obstructed justice and HAS DONE NOTHING TO WARD OFF RUSSIA AND THUS COLLUDE AGAIN FOR 2020 WITH RUSSIA TO DEFRAUD AMERICANS AGAIN.
Rosenstein nevertheless promised Trump that he would assure that Trump would be protected from criminal charges and imprisonment.
April 26: Trump boasted that the US economy is number one in the world. Indeed, it has been that way for a hundred years. Fortunately, while degrading American morality and prestige, Trump has yet to derail the US economy re-invigorated by Obama after the near depression of 2008.
April 26: Trump boasted that his comments about Charlottesville were "perfect." Neo-Nazis, the KKK and white supremacists –"fine people" according to Trump – came from across the US with hundreds of guns for a violent march against Jews and non-whites to terrorize, threaten and murder. This is the America Trump seeks, domestic terrorists against anything American.
April 27: UPDATE. Trump's hate of Jews produced another mass shooting at a synagogue, this time near San Diego. One of victims was from Iran, another of Trump's targets for terror.
April 26: Trump seeks to jail and subjected to the death penalty President Barrack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of National Security James Clapper, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Special Counsel Robert Mueller and numerous FISA judges, DOJ attorneys and FBI agents. Trump ordered his corrupt Attorney General William Barr to carry out the elimination of these Americans. Trump claims that their investigation of his collusion with Russia to defraud US voters and obstruction of justice was a criminal coup against his treasonous campaign. Trump insists that tyranny is the destiny of the US in the style of Russia, China and North Korea.
Trump is also encouraging his supporters via Twitter and white-supremacist campaign rallies to assassinate members of Congress.
Trump proudly obstructs Congress and justice, refusing to comply with any subpoenas or information requests of Congress pursuant to Article One of the US Constitution. Trump refuses what Lindsay Graham calls legitimate oversight of the president.
April 25: Fox News's Judge Anthony Nepolitano. "Mueller laid out at least a half-dozen crimes of obstruction committed by Trump -- from asking former Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland to write an untruthful letter about the reason for Flynn's chat with Kislyak, to asking Corey Lewandowski and then-former White House Counse lDon McGahn to fire Mueller and McGahn to lie about it, to firing Comey to impede the FBI's investigations, to dangling a pardon in front of Michael Cohen to stay silent, to ordering his aides to hide and delete records. The president's job is to enforce federal law. If he had ordered its violation to save innocent life or preserve human freedom, he would have a moral defense. But ordering obstruction to save himself from the consequences of his own behavior is unlawful, defenseless and condemnable."
April 25: Trump's puppeteers, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, are meeting today to expand their plot against the US.
Trump cannot separate 'collusion' from Russia's election interference to get him elected. That's because they are the same thing and cannot be separated.
April 24: Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people. Whether they like it or not, Republicans in Congress share the constitutional responsibility to protect the country. Mueller’s report leaves many unanswered questions — in part because of Attorney General William P. Barr’s redactions and obfuscations. But it is a road map. It’s up to members of both parties to see where that road map leads — to the eventual filing of articles of impeachment, or not. We have to get this right. The Mueller report isn’t just a reckoning about our recent history; it’s also a warning about the future. Unless checked, the Russians will interfere again in 2020, and possibly other adversaries, such as China or North Korea, will as well. This is an urgent threat. Nobody but Americans should be able to decide America’s future. And, unless he’s held accountable, the president may show even more disregard for the laws of the land and the obligations of his office. He will likely redouble his efforts to advance Putin’s agenda, including rolling back sanctions, weakening NATO and undermining the European Union. Of all the lessons from our history, the one that’s most important may be that each of us has a vital role to play as citizens. A crime was committed against all Americans, and all Americans should demand action and accountability. Our founders envisioned the danger we face today and designed a system to meet it. Now it’s up to us to prove the wisdom of our Constitution, the resilience of our democracy and the strength of our nation. (Hillary Clinton)
April 24: To help Russia's economy, Trump is banning Iran's oil for sale, thus raising the price of oil to the world, which will increase revenues to Russia.
April 24: Bravo. The Iowa Legislature's longest-serving Republican, Andy McKean, announced Tuesday that because of Trump, he will leave the Republican Party. "With the 2020 president election looming on the horizon, I feel as a Republican that I need to be able to support the standard bearer of our party. Unfortunately, that is not something I am able to do. He sets, in my opinion, a poor example for the nation and particularly for our children by personally insulting -- often in a crude and juvenile fashion -- those who disagree with him, being a bully at a time when we we are attempting to discourage bullying, his frequent disregard for the truth and his willingness to ridicule or marginalize people for their appearance, ethnicity or disability. I believe that it is just a matter of time before our party pays a heavy price for President Trump's reckless spending and shortsighted financial policies, his erratic, destabilizing foreign policy and his disregard for environmental concerns. If this is the new normal, I want no part of it."
April 23: Trump, king of Tweet, attacked Twitter for removing 5,000 Russian accounts attacking investigation of Russia's interference in US elections. Via Jared Kushner, Trump announced that the investigation of Russia's election interference is worse than Russia's election interference. Treason everyday from Trump.
April 22: Trump announced that it is not only legal but appropriate to accept and solicit illicit assistance from foreign adversaries of the US. According to Trump, if it isn't illegal, then it is acceptable. Goodbye US national security and societal responsibility. Hello tyrrany and immorality.
For Trump and his followers, patriotism is dead, replaced by hate and racism.
April 20: On behalf of Russia, Trump has convinced rioters around the world to attack democracy, religious freedom, non-whites,Muslims, journalism, the truth, the climate, caged and molested children, abused women and freedom. America is taking its turn in history to govern by and incite immorality and tyranny.
April 19: Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano said that evidence detailed in special counsel Robert Mueller's report “might be enough to prosecute” Trump. “Depending upon how you look at them, it might be enough to prosecute,” Napolitano said. “But it did show a venal, amoral, deceptive Donald Trump, instructing his aides to lie and willing to help them do so. That’s not good in the president of the United States,” he added. (The Hill) “On obstruction of justice … the president is not exactly cleared,” he also said on the show, pointing to nearly a dozen instances of potential obstruction detailed in the report.
Trump is making Russia the most successful con artists on earth, and he adores Putin for his achievement.
April 19: Putin's response to the Mueller Report matches Trump's. Putin says it is fake news, Russia did not interfere in the US election, no collusion, no obstruction. All false of course. Everybody but the guilty knows that the Trump/Putin response is all false.
April 19: Trump's official response to Mueller Report, "Total Bullshit."
Those 7 convictions, 39 criminals still at large, 199 criminal counts and much more to come all total bullshit according to Trump (including Trump campaign chair, vice chair, national security advisor, personal attorney, campaign advisors, and dozens of his Russian buddies). If he weren't let go by Barr, he too would be in prison with his new and old buddies...where there is little bullshit.
Children everywhere, this is how to respond to your parents, teachers and police.
April 18: There is something critical that the Mueller Report did not do. It did not follow the money: money laundering, tax fraud, bank fraud, financial collusions with Russia and Saudi Arabia, campaign finance crimes, Trump foundation crimes etc.
Clinton lied about a sexual affair. Trump colluded with Russia against Americans, weakened US national security, cheated banks and taxpayers, defrauded voters, obstructed justice, lied thousands of times to Americans, markets white supremacy, encourages murder and assassination...and lied about several sexual affairs.
Everyone should read the Mueller Report and ask... Did he or did he not lie to us? Did he or did he not perpetrate an array of crimes? Why are so many Trump associates arrested? Does Trump represent America? Is it OK for a President to lie thousands of times, collude with Russia to defraud voters, obstruct justice, diminish national security and the rule of law, elevate white supremacy, cheat banks and taxpayers, run away from his financial responsibilities, encourage murder and assassination, and teach our children that his schemes are acceptable? Would you let your children do what Trump did and continues to do?
April 18: "White House counsel John Dean famously told Nixon that there was a cancer within the presidency and that it was growing. What the Mueller report disturbingly shows, with crystal clarity, is that today there is a cancer in the presidency: President Donald J. Trump. Congress now bears the solemn constitutional duty to excise that cancer without delay." (George Conway)
April 18: Mueller said he considered issuing a subpoena for Trump to sit for an interview but ultimately decided against it because it would have resulted in a lengthy legal battle. “We determined that the substantial quantity of information we had obtained from other sources allowed us to draw relevant factual conclusions on intent and credibility,” the special counsel wrote. Mueller said that, beginning in December 2017, he sought an interview with Trump for more than a year because the president was a subject of the investigation and his answers were considered “vital” for determining whether there were links between the Trump campaign and Russia and if he obstructed the probe. Mueller made it clear he was unhappy with the written question-and-answer, saying Trump’s answers “'demonstrate the inadequacy of the written format, as we have had no opportunity to ask follow-up questions that would ensure complete answers and potentially refresh your client's recollection.'”
April 18: While refusing to provide a sworn interview, Trump filed some written answers to some questions. Trump, who tells us his has the best brain and memory the world has ever seen, wrote that he cannot remember 37 times. Just what we need for someone who can launch nuclear weapons.
April 18, 2019. Established. Trump is corrupt, and should be removed as president if not jailed.
And so is William Barr, who should also be removed as Attorney General if not jailed. Mueller's report outlined 400+ pages of substantial evidence of collusion and obstruction. Barr's lie, there was no such evidence.
Russia now has not only Trump as an asset but also Barr. Trump and Barr will do little to stop Russia from choosing the US president in 2010 because both say that Trump's collusion was permissible.
April 18:The special counsel categorically rejected arguments advanced by Trump’s lawyers that the president is shielded from obstruction-of-justice laws by his unique constitutional role and powers. “The Constitution does not categorically and permanently immunize the president,” the Mueller report said in a dense section of legal analysis that suggested that investigators found abundant evidence that Trump had in fact repeatedly sought to undermine the probe. The report even describes a “significant change in the president’s conduct” after firing FBI Director James B. Comey, facing the formation of the special counsel and realizing that investigators were focusing on whether his behavior amounted to obstruction. The report makes clear that investigators saw ample evidence of both action and intent — noting, for example, that Trump instructed White House lawyer Donald McGahn to have the special counsel removed at the same time he was telling Sessions to limit the scope of the probe to campaign interference by Russia. The “temporal connection . . . suggests that both acts were taken with a related purpose,” the report said. The 25-page section dispenses with a series of arguments that Trump defenders have raised for months for presidential immunity, saying it doesn’t matter whether there was any underlying crime or whether Trump’s conduct — dangling pardons, attacking investigators — was in plain view for the public. Nor was Mueller’s team swayed by the argument that Trump ultimately allowed investigators to finish their work, noting that his efforts to undermine the probe failed “largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests.” Comey, for example, did not stop investigating Flynn. The section and its seeming certainty about the obstruction evidence and that Trump was not immune add to the mystery of why Mueller ultimately opted not to render judgment on the matter. The team appears to have decided that the Justice Department opinion that a sitting president can’t be indicted meant that the report should leave the issue of whether to pursue an obstruction charge to Congress. The section concludes with an endorsement of the adage that “no person is above the law” and that “while the report does not conclude that the president committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.” “Evidence concerning the President’s conduct towards Manafort indicates that the President intended to encourage Manafort to not cooperate with the government,” the report stated. “Before Manafort was convicted, the President repeatedly stated that Manafort had been treated unfairly. One day after Manafort was convicted on eight felony charges and potentially faced a lengthy prison term, the President said that Manafort was “a brave man” for refusing to “break” and that “flipping” “almost ought to be outlawed.’ ” ....and on and on... (Washington Post)
April 18: Knowing his extensive treason, crimes and lies, Trump's response when Robert Mueller was chosen to investigate. "Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m fucked."
So, Trump found a corrupt Attorney General to exonerate him. The last 3 years as well as the Mueller report confirm Trump's collusion with Russia and obstruction of justice to end, spoil and derail Mueller. Everyone in Trump's sphere violates their oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the US.
April 18: From the Mueller report. "If we had confidence after a thorough investigation of the facts that the President clearly did not commit obstruction of justice, we would so state. Based on the facts and the applicable legal standards, however, we are unable to reach that judgment. The evidence we obtained about the President’s actions and intent presents difficult issues that prevent us from conclusively determining that no criminal conduct occurred. Accordingly, while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him. A statement that the investigation did not establish palticular facts does not mean there was no evidence of those facts. Our investigation found multiple acts by the President that were capable of exerting undue influence over law enforcement investigations, including the Russian-interference and obstruction investigations. The President' s efforts to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful, but that is largely because the persons who surrounded the President declined to carry out orders or accedeto his requests. Comey did not end the investigation of Flynn, which ultimately resulted in Flynn'sprosecution and conviction for lying to the FBI. McGahn did not tell the Acting Attorney General that the Special Counsel must be removed, but was instead prepared to resign over the President's order. Lewandowski and Dearborn did not deliver the President's message to Sessions that he should confine the Russia investigation to future election meddling only. And McGahn refused to recede from his recollections about events surrounding the President's direction to have the Special Counsel removed, despite the President's multiple demands that he do so. The conclusion that Congress may apply the obstruction laws to the President's corrupt exercise of the powers of office accords with our constitutional system of checks and balances and the principle that no person is above the law. A possible remedy through impeachment for abuses of power would not substitute for potential
criminal liability after a President leaves office."
April 18: It happened right before your eyes. The United States Attorney General transformed his office to a mafia-like defense lawyer for his crime boss, Trump. Contrary to evidence, also before our eyes for 3 years, William Barr said about Trump, no collusion no obstruction. Barr excused Trump's lies about Russia and his family's and team's meetings, about which they all lied about, with Russian spies as permissible because Trump 'hurtfelioma', Trump's feelings were hurt from all the questions about his collusion, obstruction and lies. (Note: several of Trump's senior advisors have been found guilty of serious crimes against the US, some serving several years in prison for doing so.) Trump's firing of an FBI Director and an Attorney General for not terminating FBI's investigation of collusion, ordering a White House Counsel to fire Robert Mueller and ordering his staff to lie about collusion and obstruction were exonerated by Barr, insisting that Trump could not help himself in the face of criticism. Barr also announced that he met with White House and Trump's personal lawyers to share with them over the past 2 weeks Meuller's report for their counsel how to present it to the public and Congress. So corrupt is Barr, even Chris Wallace of Fox News announced on air, "The Attorney General seemed almost to be acting as the counselor for the defense, the counselor for the president, rather than the attorney general, talking about his motives, his emotions." We also know from Trump's defense lawyers that Trump would have established his collusion and obstruction under oath with the grand jury and thus prevented Trump's sworn testimony, needed to fully establish 'corrupt intent' in Trump's collusion, obstruction and lies.
About the Mueller Report, BARR REPEATEDLY LIED to protect Trump. Barr announced, falsely, that Meuller concluded that there was no evidence of collusion. In fact, Mueller concluded that so many committed so many crimes of lying and hiding critical information (at Trump's direction) that Mueller did not have enough evidence to charge crimes against Trump. In other words, there is substantial evidence but hidden and destroyed evidence that makes it not yet possible to charge Trump with crimes.
Note: Trump was identified in court documents filed by the US Attorney in New York as director of a criminal conspiracy against American voters to cover up Trump's sexual affairs with a porn star and a Playboy model. No consequence to Trump's Barr.
April 18: It's an evolution of the Saturday Night Massacre of Watergate. Now, we have Trump's Easter Sunday Massacre. Today, Trump unleashes a new form of his collusion with corruption, ordering a corrupt Attorney General to protect him from his crimes...not only not charging him for his crimes but covering them up with a a new chapter for Easter of his distorted PR campaign of Robert Mueller's 22-month investigation. There will be a press conference at 9:30 am to answer questions from journalists not permitted to see Mueller's report, further enabling Trump's cover-up. Corruption begets corruption, rising now to devestating conspiracy against the US and infusing cancer into the Department of Justice. Trump and AG Barr have tainted the DOJ/FBI as spies while enabling Russian interference in US democracy.
There use to be a shining city on the hill known as the United States of America, now corrupted.
NOTE: nothing Trump says is under oath. Very afraid he is to ever to do so. For Trump, the truth is like sun light to a vampire.
For three weeks, Trump boasted that Mueller's report totally exonerated him and that Mueller was honorable. All that is about to change. Trump announced that he has prepared a 30-page rebuttal to Mueller's report.
Trump logic: anything he does that is illegal is actually legal because he found an Attorney General who will not charge him for his crimes. Thus, since he will not be charged with a crime, his crimes are legal. Total vindication of his crimes. We finally have a president of the US who commits any crime he wants because his Attorney General will not charge him with a crime. American values, the rule of law and the US Constitution are for everyone else, not Trump.
April 16: Trump is maintaining and encouraging Russia's control of US elections, expecially for 2020. US voters are little more than pawns for Russia on behalf of Trump.
April 15: Trump thrives on the murder of Americans, inciting murder of most of the population except white supremacists. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is pleading for Trump to stop inciting the murder of elected Democrats and has instructed Capitol police to provide further protection from Trump's encouragement of assassination.
Update: Trump wants her dead, calling a member of House an enemy of the people. He also wants an array of Democrats, President Obama, Hillary Clinton and even Republican Robert Mueller imprisoned.
More examples. African Americans are murdered in their yards, cars and homes while posing a risk to no one...by white supremacists heeding Trump's messaging.
April 11: Trump criminal collaborator Julian Assange (Wikileaks founder) arrested. Trump praised Wikileaks often, "I love Wikileaks." Trump embraced and elevated Wikileaks 140+ times in 2016.
True to form, Trump lied in response, saying he does not know Wikilieaks.
Russia manipulated Trump, his campaign and his voters in part through Julian Assange and Trump lawyer Roger Stone - conduits of conspiracy - between Trump and Russia for crimes against the US.
April 7: Trump has inspired open hunting season to murder African Americans, Hispanics, elected Democrats and journalists. They are Trump's "enemies of the people." African Americans, in particular, are routinely arrested, attacked, tortured and murdered in their homes and on/in their property. Note the recent death threat against Representative Eric Swalwell. "Eric Swalwell, here’s a little ditty for ya: pop-pop-pop-bop-pop-pop-pop — 30-round clip, you’re all gonna drop. I don’t give a f--- anymore. You motherf---er think you got some new young motherf---ers going to take over and f-- the Constitution? F-- you. You want to go to war motherf---er? We’re going to war,” the man continues. “And you’re gonna be the first motherf---ing casualty. F--- you." Trump calls Hispanics criminals, rapists and animals. Phones, swords and guns are used threaten anyone Trump targets for elimination. Trump desires a civil war wherein white supremacists are the sole remaining occupants of the US.
Meanwhile, Trump sells tickets for $200,000 for spy access to him in Palm Beach, a spy's dream come true.
March 31: Trump is determined to undermine US national security. He ignores advice from the CIA/NSA/DOD/FBI etc, calling it fake news. He ridicules his agency appointees and their service. He collaborated with Russia to get elected and will do nothing to interfere with Russia's interference in US elections. He puts the lives of national security officers at increased risk in the field. Today, we learn that he dismissed denials for national security clearance for 25 members of his staff, approving their access to national security secrets over the objection of agency professionals. This on top of his systematic ruin of US national security agencies themselves.
At least some of these approvals for previously denied security clearance were for individuals working as agents of foreign adversaries to the US, eg Jared Kushner and Michael Flynn (a convicted criminal for conspiracy against the US).
Mueller implemented 500 search warrants, meaning multiple judges determined that crimes were probably committed. This is strong evidence of crime. In some cases, apparently but not yet known by us, the strength of the evidence may not have reached the high standard for trial. In other cases, Trump, via his appointees, squelched prosecution. In other cases, the DOJ rule that Trump could not be charged with a crime prevailed.
March 25: Three years ago, the FBI began a counter-intelligence operation into Trump associates meeting with Russian spies to interfere with the election. Twenty two months ago, Robert Mueller was appointed to examine whether these facts were also crimes and to narrowly focus this investigation on criminal conspiracy between Trump et al and Russian spies in concert with Vladimir Putin (often admired by Trump and a planned partner of Trump in real estate ventures) (Mueller did not investigate decades of Trump corruption and tax/bank/campaign finance fraud OR Trump corruption and bank/tax/campaign finance fraud since in the White House (some of Trump's campaign finance crimes were officially noted by DOJ in a federal case involving Trump's corrupt lawyer Michael Cohen). Six months later, auditioning for the job of Attorney General, William Barr publicized his advice to Trump that Trump could not be indicted for crimes and could not obstruct justice (both false of course). Over the last few months, Trump informed Mueller that he would not testify under oath because he would lie and compound his crimes. Trump made clear that if forced to testify that he would invoke the Fifth Amendment, an action Trump boasted often meant you were a criminal). A month ago, with Barr now Trump's Attorney General chosen to further derail criminal prosecution of Trump, Barr made clear to Mueller that Trump would not be charged with any crimes, including those focused upon by Mueller. Thus, Mueller finalized his report noting, according to Barr, that Mueller did not establish sufficient evidence against Trump that would change Barr's conclusion that Trump would not be indicted by Mueller regardless of the evidence, although Mueller noted that his report does NOT exonerate Trump. Notably, several Trump top officials were indicted and convicted of conspiracy and bank/tax fraud, matters investigated by the FBI long before Mueller's appointment. Undoubtedly, investigations into Trump's non-criminal conspiracy with Russia, tax fraud, bank fraud and corruption before and during his time in office.
On the other hand, it has been firmly established that Russia interfered with the 2016 to get Trump elected using Facebook and Twitter. And, Trump will do nothing to interfere with Russia's ongoing efforts to interfere with US elections and erode confidence in the US government.....objectives Trump shares.
March 25: A bad day for the USA, a very bad day. An accomplished high-end white-collar criminal showed how his corruption and crimes so effectively evade prosecution. Trump planted 2 loyalists, Attorney General Bill Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, to derail prosecution of Trump. The tried-and-true technique.....raise the bar so high that no amount of evidence could surmount it. And, attack the investigators, in this case the FBI and DOJ attorneys, as incompetent enemies of the people. This is how Trump succeeded in defrauding banks and consumers of billions of dollars for his career and doing it now to gain new businesses from the White House. Ironically, Trump also set the bar for entry into the White House so low that one would have to dig a hole to get under it. Russia rejoices. China rejoices. Racists rejoice. The USA is out of order. The kind of evidence that put Trump officials in prison was deemed insufficient to hold Trump accountable by prosecutors scared of being swept up by Trump's tyrrany. Trump had no corrupt intent according to Barr and Rosenstein, trapped by Trump's refusal to testify under oath, which even his army of lawyers would have incriminated him in an array of crimes. A bad day for all of us. Americans join the international community loathing the US government and those who betray America.
Trump, hate, lying, revenge, white supremacy, corruption, Russia, degradation of the rule of law, disabling election interference and the systematic erosion of American values won today.
Trump bragged he could get away with murder even if performed publically. He certainly got away from an array of crimes today, most performed publically. What a message to would-be criminals, do your criminal deeds in public and claim you are defending yourself against a bogus witch hunt (you may need to boast about grabbing women's genitals, be a TV star and thrive on decades of bank and tax fraud first).
It is notable, however, that it took 3 years for the Dept. of Justice, led by Trump appointees, to announce that Trump did not conspire with Russia. Should's this have taken less than 3 minutes? Also notable, top Trump officials have been convicted for conspiring with US adversaries, including Russia, conspiracy against the US, tax and bank fraud, and lies to the FBI,and dozens of Russian spies charged with interfering in the election for Trump, totally 199 criminal counts. Nevertheless, Trump's DOJ appointees performed their service, not charging Trump with his crimes and treason.
March 21: Trump calls for prison and hanging of Hillary Clinton for using a non-government email address. His top officials, especially 'saintly' Ivanka and Jared, are doing far worse....using not only email accounts but also messaging apps like WhatsApp.
Trump hates everything good about America but loves the imperfections, greed, racism and corruption.
Trump can't help stop drawing attention to his pathology. The husband of Trump sycophant Kellyanne Conway (George Conway) tells us his close-up view of Trump.
March 19: Trump is angry at Twitter because it is removing posts and accounts of those who plan and commit extreme violence against those Trump hates, non-whites, especially African-Americans, Muslims and Hispanics.
Yet another Trumpster, this one writing to Senator John McCain's widow, hated by Trump as well as the Senator, a prisoner of war tortured for years and body broken in Viet Nam.
Trump endorses the larges and most murderous terrorist group in the US, white supremacists. He is its leading member, endorsed by the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacist around the world.
March 17: St. Patrick's Day, so Trump used the occasion to attack Senator John McCain, who died a few months ago from brain cancer. He suffered decades from extreme torture as a prisoner of war when his fighter plane was shot down over Vietnam. Trump despises McCain for not being a white-supremacist who encourages daily the murder of non-whites and Muslims as Trump does.
Trump boasted that he "gave" Senator McCain his funeral and attacked him for not thanking Trump. For Trump, being dead is a coward's excuse.
The Cathedral that hosted the funeral responded to Trump's sacriligious lie. "Washington National Cathedral was honored to host the funeral service for Senator John McCain. All funerals and memorial services at the Cathedral are organized by the family of the deceased. No funeral at the Cathedral requires the approval of the president or any other government official."
March 17: Tiny-man Trump, world-class Putin puppet, claimed that Saturday Night Live, a TV comedy show for decades, is colluding with Russia. Oh my! Humor is a Russian plot to Trump.
March 16: Like Putin and Kim, Trump is restricting visas of any International Criminal Court (ICC) staffers who investigate US war crimes. Dictators unite.
March 14: Trump again encouraged HIS police, military, bikers and anyone with a gun to plan and commit violence against non-whites, Muslims, the FBI, the media and Democrats.
In turn, 49 Muslims were slaughtered today in New Zealand by a killer who endorses Trump's white supremacy and call to kill non-whites and Muslims.
Another Trumpster murderer appeared in a New Jersey court on Monday and flashed a pair of pro-Trump slogans written on his left hand: "MAGA Forever" and "United We Stand MAGA." Makes Trump happy.
March 13: Trashing the Bible, Trump signed them today, his signature outperforming the Bible itself. One of these dubious prizes was sold for $325 on eBay.
March 7: Trump has learned that white collar crime can earn you billions of dollars with little risk of being caught, and even if caught given a small prison sentence. Trump's campaign manager and chief conduit with Russia against the US, Paul Manafort, committed an array of serious crimes of massive fraud, money laundering, tax evasion, lying prolifically to FBI/DOJ agent, illicit gain of $30+ million and conspiracy against the US on behalf of US adversaries, but was sentenced today to less than 4 years in prison. In contrast, if you are an African American mowing your lawn and watching TV in your home, you can be sent to prison for decades for being black or smoking a joint, or be murdered by police who go uncharged for their crime.
Trump is running the executive branch with 2 kinds: corrupt and spies for US adversaries, particularly Russia and Saudi Arabia, Trump's 2 largest business and crime partners.
March 6: Trump's trade war and economic crimes produced the largest trade deficit in 294 years, $891.2 billion, a component of his expanding the US deficit $2 trillion. The middle class will have unfair tax bills for hundreds of years from Trump.
Same kind of Trump fraud in insurance. Eg, Trump claimed $17 million for non-existent insurance damage in 2005 to his Mara Lago palace caused by a hurricane he can't remember. Two years after a series of storms, the real estate tycoon said he didn’t know how much had been spent on repairs, but acknowledged he pocketed some of the money. He transferred funds into his personal accounts.
Amazing that many in Congress demanded impeachment AND removal from office Bill Clinton for having a sexual affair, but demand no such action against Trump for hundreds of millions of dollars of bank/insurance/tax fraud, defraud voters, conspiracy against the US, disassembling US national security and the rule of law, paying illegal hush money to a porn star and Playboy bunny, and having lied 9,000 times in office.
March 5: Trump is the most diverse mobster the world has seen. Bank fraud, insurance fraud, real estate fraud, money laundering, accounting fraud, tax fraud, product fraud....and now government fraud and corruption, selling US national security to foreign dictators (eg, Putin and the crown prince of Saudi Arabia), breaking US national security, election fraud, obstruction of justice, refusing to comply with congressional oversight, selling pardons to criminals and violations of the US Constitution.
February 28: Trump surrendered to a murderous dictator again, this time again siding with a dictator over US intelligence by accepting the "word" of Kim Jong Un that North Korea had nothing to do with the horrible end of the life of an American in North Korea. And, undermining the US and the presidency again on the world stage, Trump left his "summit" with Kim with nothing after promising final solutions with North Korea. While he was at it, Trump attack Americans while with Kim.
Thus, in the span of a few hours, Trump showed weakness and that he is a con man, cheat and racist who conspires against the US. Trump joins Nixon as a loser in Viet Nam, host of Trump's debacle.
February 27: "The president doesn’t tell the truth about a lot of things fairly consistently. And so the fact that he’s not telling the truth about Russia fairly consistently, at least in the eyes of the people around here, why is that any different? It’s not like he’s doing something out of character with the Russia investigation, that he’s not doing in other areas." (Rick Santorum, Trump apologist/defender!)
"The interesting thing is that there hasn’t been one Republican yet who has tried to defend the president on the substance, and I think that’s something that should be concerning to the White House." (Chris Christie, Trump apologist/defender!)
February 27: Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, was grilled in a House hearing today. Trump's bogus Republicans attacked Cohen, forced an African-American Trump employee to vouch for Trump (yet another form of Trump racism) or be fired. and railed against their duty to perform oversight.
BUT, they NEVER claimed Trump was lying today, thus endorsing the truth of what Cohen testified to...that Trump is a liar, con man, cheat, racist and traitor.
Notably, Trump's fake Republicans attacken Cohen for being found guilty and going to prison for a criminal conspiracy with Trump.
Also revealed today, there are several criminal investigations under way against Trump.
Last but not least, the fake Republicans screamed over and over that Cohen lied to Congress a year ago when Cohen testified that Trump was a good guy and did not commit crimes. What were they thinking?One of 11 checks Trump paid for his criminal conspiracy to break campaign finance law and to silence his porn-star sex . Trump's first installments, a check for $70,000, were made in the Oval Office shortly after he took office (orchestrating payment for his criminal conspiracy from the White House). Trump signed six other checks like this for his criminal conspiracy to defraud voters.
A Trump crime perpetrated from the White House!
Trump paid Cohen $420,000, paying Stormy Daniels $130,000 and keeping the rest for his service in Trump's criminal conspiracy to defraud voters
February 21: Trump is frustrated. His US policy to murder US citizens when they are African Americans, journalists or Democrats is moving too slowly. African Americans in their homes and cars are routinely murdered by the police. Last week, the editor of a newspaper in Alabama called for the KKK to eliminate Trump's foes in Washington, DC. Yesterday, one of Trump's white supremacists was arrested because of his arsenal and plan to kill over a dozen favorite enemies named by Trump on CNN, MSNBC and in Congress.
'No comment' from Trump about the member of the US Coast Guard arrested for planning to KILL an array of leaders in Congress, including the Speaker of the House and journalists. Instead, Trump calls these targets the enemies of the people, encouraging their assassination and threatens termination of the comedy show Saturday Night Live.
February 20: To assist Trump's menace against the US, Putin announced that he will target nuclear weapons against the US. Putin has said that Russia is militarily ready for a Cuban Missile-style crisis if the United States is foolish enough to want one and that his country currently has the edge when it comes to a first nuclear strike.
Trump continues to rely on Putin for re-election, and will do nothing to protect US elections from Putin's interference. Putin is active attacking potential Democratic candidates via social media for the 2020 elections.
Trump has already added over $2 trillion to the national debt, handing over hundreds of billions of dollars to banks, large corporations and billionaires (eg, while Trump attacks Amazon on Twitter, he enabled Amazon to pay NO federal income tax on $11 billion profit for 2018).
February 19: Daily it seems, Trump commits crimes, obstruction of justice and treason. Today's leading example: Trump directed the nitwit he installed as Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker, to drop the prosecution of criminal conspiracy between himself and Michael Cohen, who admitted guilt and is going to prison for 3 years starting in March. And, Trump directed Whitaker to lie about it to Congress by testifying falsely under oath that he never had discussions with Trump about this. Whitaker told associates that his job as Attorney General was to jump on a grenade for Trump.
February 18: Trump informed European countries that he plans to release hundreds of ISIS terrorists in addition to turning over Syria and Iraq back to ISIS.
February 18: Again and again, Trump pledges his allegiance to Vladimir Putin. Trump tells the CIA, FBI and NSA that he discounts US intelligence in favor of his late night calls with Putin. In turn, Trump is removing from these agencies of US patriots. Treason.
People who attack an investigation into their conduct are the ones who can’t defend themselves against it. In other words, guilty people.
February 15: The US commander who has been leading the war against ISIS, General Joseph Votel, disagrees with Trump over Syria troop pullout. "It would not have been my military advice at that particular time ... I would not have made that suggestion, frankly. (The caliphate) still has leaders, still has fighters, it still has facilitators, it still has resources, so our continued military pressure is necessary to continue to go after that network."
February 15: "The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot." (Ann Coulter)
Trump said it's easier to climb Mr. Everest than get through his wall. Never mind all one needs is a short ladder, shovels for tunnels, walk around it or fly over it on Delta.
Trump also said that taking executive action on immigration was an unconstitutional action that could lead to impeachment. And, he said he didn't need his emergency action except for his election campaign. Moments after declaring a national emergency, Trump went on vacation to Mara Lago in Palm Beach to share national secrets to those who pay him enough to get in and to watch his illegal immigrant employees do menial labor. Undoubtedly, Trump has many Russian spy members.
February 12: Trump still cannot count. He claimed his wacky El Paso rally last night had 35,000 attendees and Beto O'Rourke's march a block away had only 200-300. False of course. Both events had 10,000-12,000 in their audience. Oh, and he does not have $11 billion either. He'd be lucky to have 1% of this.
February 8: Looks like yet another Trump/Saudi/National Enquirer criminal conspiracy against a US citizen. This time, using - via a Trump agency - intercepted text messages of Jeff Bezos, the National Enquirer served the lead to extort, to benefit Trump, Bezos, owner of the Washington Post, despised by Trump. Owner of the National Enquirer, longtime Trump crime partner, threatened Bezos to stop researching facts about the National Enquirer or suffer the public release of the criminally-intercepted text messages of Bezos.
February 7: Trump's corruption with Russia included approving Putin's development of new nuclear weapons to devastate NATO countries in Europe. Trump hates NATO as much as Putin. And, assisted by Trump, Russia has developed weapons, now installed on 2 Russian warships, that disrupt the eyesight of targets as well as make them hallucinate and vomit.
February 7: Trump's corruption with Saudi Arabia includes Trump's selling military weapons to turn over to Al Qaeda, bin Laden's terrorist organization.
February 7: Trump corruption regarding illegal immigrants is so bad that, now exposed in part, Trump fired 18 illegal immigrants that he employed.
February 7: Trump's Dept. of Veterans Affairs is so corrupt that 19 veterans have committed suicide on the grounds of a VA hospital in protest of their poor treatment.
February 2: Putin is thrilled. Trump approved Putin's development of nuclear weapons to destroy NATO countries. Trump hates NATO too.
January 30: "Incredible willful blindness by Trump to looming threats to US national security. He has denied the evidence of our own intelligence officials. He has concealed from his own Cabinet and Congress private dealings with Putin and KJU. We are in trouble. It's a rogue presidency. The president is under the sway of Mr. Putin and will not authorize aggressive countermeasures against the Russians." (General Barry McCaffrey)
January 30: Putin speaks, Trump behaves. Today, from his White House warm room and fireplace, Trump attacked the tens of thousands of national security professionals, many risking their lives every day in Iran/Afghanistan/Syria/Iraq and dozens of other killing fields, as "extremely passive naive." Putin/Trump have made it official US policy that its national security agencies are frauds and criminals.
January 29: Trump's own chiefs of US national intelligence say Trump is a liar. Trump says ISIS is defeated, false they say. Trump says North Korea poses no nuclear threat, false they say. Trump says Iran is violating the 'Iran nuclear deal', false they say. Trump says that mothers and children escaping murder and rape are a national emergency, false they say. Trump says that Russia is not interfering with US elections, false they say. Trump says that Russia poses no military threat against the US, they say false. Trump's lies for Russia and against the US. Trump's own national security chiefs agree with those of Obama, Bush, Clinton, Reagan, Carter etc.
With Putin's help the Trump virus became more virulent. His life of crime and fraud has now infected US government, the presidency and the White House. Like a Putin computer virus, figuratively and literally, Trump degrades America.
Fines and prison terms for criminal employers of illegal immigrants, soliciting their entry in the US, would be more effective than a wall they can go under, around and over, or as half do - fly into US airports on a VISA but not return to their home country due to VISA expiration. Oops, Trump has hired hundreds of illegal immigrants.
January 26: “What a debacle President Trump’s shutdown proved to be — what a toddler’s pageant of foot-stomping and incompetence, of vainglory and self-defeat. Mr. Trump tormented public servants and citizens and wounded the country, and, in conceding on Friday after holding the government hostage for 35 days, could claim to have achieved nothing. He succeeded only in exposing the emptiness of his bully’s bravado, of his ‘I alone can fix it’ posturing. Once upon a time, Mr. Trump promised that Mexico would pay for a wall. He instead made all Americans pay for a partisan fantasy.”( New York Times) "Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States." (Ann Coulter)
January 25: On the brink of devestation of airline safety, the economy and US national security, Trump ended the Trump Shutdown of critical federal agencies. And, Trump tried to change the news regarding the Roger Stone chapter in his conspiracy with Russia against the US.
January 25: Another one of Trump's lawyers and conduits of crime and treason was arrested. Before sunrise, a dozen heavily armed FBI agents surrounded, arrested and handcuffed Roger Stone for conspiracy against the US, obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering (which included Stone's threat to murder the dog of a witness to silence this witness), Stone told this witness to kill himself to protect Trump.
From Stone's indictment, "After the July 22, 2016 release of stolen DNC emails by Organization 1, a senior Trump Campaign official was directed to contact STONE about any additional releases and what other damaging information Organization 1 had regarding the Clinton Campaign." Organization 1 is Wikileaks, an agent of Russia against the US that conspired with Trump and Russia, often praised by Trump. Question is....who directed a senior campaign official to pursue collusion. Trump himself?Another Trump conduit of treason and crime arrested
Trump campaign officials indicted or convicted: Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, George Popadopoulis, Alex van der Zwann, Michael Cohen and numerous Russian spies and Trump co-conspirators.
January 25: Trump hates Hispanic women and children escaping rape and murder far worse than his monumental hate of African Americans and Muslims. These mothers and their children are, to Trump, an existential threat against the United States. To prove it, Trump terminated paychecks to over a million Americans more than a month ago and breaking US national security and aviation safety on top of over a million families, many forced to work in the Coast Guard, FBI, air traffic control, FBI, Homeland Security and other critical roles. To these ends, Trump demands a WALL against Mexico, even though videos of tunnels under and ladders over existing walls are readily available as are records that most illegal immigrants arrive by plane and through the border around the US other than with Mexico. So fevered over his wall Trump has not played golf for his longest period of time in his life.
January 23: Scared by Trump's threats against the life of his family, attorney Michael Cohen postponed his testimony before the House of Representatives and American people. Trump's obstructions of justice keep expanding, this one also known as criminal witness tampering.
Trump's Dept. of Justice will not indict Trump for his many crimes and treason, so Trump perpetrates them freely realizing that, in violation of the US Constitution, he is above the rule of law and the US Constitution.
We never need to tell the truth to Trump supporters. They reject truth and will hate you for it.
January 18: Trump relaxed sanctions against one of his Russian co-conspirators. Another 'favor' for Putin against the US.
January 17: Trump attempted the assassination-by-terrorist of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, her delegation and top military officers in Afghanistan by leaking the travel plans of Pelosi to Afghanistan, forcing Pelosi to cancel her trip to save the lives targeted by Trump's assassination plan.
For Putin Trump is undermining America, its values, its culture, its government, its national security, its allies, its rule of law, its morality and its democracy.
The ultimate problem is that Trump has the power to go crazy, eg launch nuclear weapons, gun down thousands of mothers and children at the boarder, light fire to the white house….. these reasons inhibit action against him.
January 17: Trump, via his closest lawyer, announced that campaign officials colluded with Russia against the US. Trump's previous closest lawyer announced that Trump directed him for Trump's sole benefit to pay for another illegal campaign contribution, this one to rig election polling to falsify Trump's standing in the polls (a bag of cash in a Walmart bag was used). And, Trump personally directed Cohen to lie to Congress about Trump's Moscow Trump Tower project, one of Trump's treasonous conspiracies with Putin (Trump's AG nominee William Barr testified this week that coaching witnesses to lie is obstruction of justice).
Trump supporter Chris Christie announced that Trump is surrounded by convicted and unconvicted felons.
No wonder Trump will not testify under oath about anything.
January 16: Another Trump blunder kills Americans. Trump announced last month that he defeated ISIS (false) and, therefore, began removing US troops from Syria to handover Syria to Russia and Iran. Today, US soldiers were killed by ISIS in Syria.
January 16: To harm Americans on behalf of Russia, Trump has removed salaries from about one million government workers and contractors, thus harming the lives of millions of Americans. Trump tells them to try babysitting or licking postage stamps, and that he does not want them to ever renew their federal income.
January 16: To please Putin, Trump talks often about removing the US from NATO, seen by Putin as his largest threat. NATO has been incredibly successful for 70 years to protect democracy, a bad mission according to Trump and Putin.
January 15: It became clear why trump chose William Barr to be the new Attorney General. Barr testified that what Trump has committed many crimes BUT will not charge him with these crimes, no indictments for this treasonous president according to Barr. Trump rejoices, no jail time.
January 14: Trump says it's wrong to speak with his Department of Justice but it is right to speak privately with Vladimir Putin and destroy any notes of their several private meetings that banned any US official to participate AND to invite the top Russian spies into the Oval Office, while banning all US officials, to celebrate Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey in order to derail investigation of Trump-Putin collusion against the US. Treason.
January 12: Asked by Fox News if he is a Russian asset against the US, Trump could not say no. Trump was elected by Putin, is controlled by Putin and is loyal to Putin. And, is using his government shutdown to slow down investigations into his crimes and treason.
January 11: F.B.I. Opened Inquiry Into Whether Trump Was Secretly Working on Behalf of Russia. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.Go Around Walls Trump Says
Household tools cut through Trump's strongest wall
1050s movie about a con man named Trump with miracle wall
January 8: Criminal defense attorneys for Trump's campaign manager, Paul Manafort, confirmed in writing that Manafort on behalf of Trump in 2016 colluded, ie criminally conspired, with Russian spies, eg sharing voter data with Russia for Russia to better target its illicit support of Trump's election.
Trump is using his insane goverment shutdown to slowdown investigation into his crimes and treason, arguing in court that his lawyers do not have the resources now to handle the investigations.
January 6: Trump claims that it is a national emergency not to built a wall between the US and Mexico to hold back 6 possible-but-unlikely terrorists. (Seven times this number arrive via Canada, but no Trump wall.) Trump closed about 25% of the federal government, including portions of the Dept. of Homeland Security, in support of his emergency! Trump demands that Americans pay for his racism.
January 4: Trump attacked a congressman for saying the word 'fuck', calling it a disgrace against the US. But, to Nancy Palosi in the Oval Office for 15 minutes yelled 'fuck'. Speaking of disgrace, Trump's is the biggest disgrace on earth.
January 4: Trump's economy. Already added $2 trillion to US federal debt ($2,000,000,000,000), stopped paying 800,000 federal workers their income, froze the salary of all federal workers and cancelled their 2% raise (though gave his captains of corruption a $10,000 raise), caused substantial loss of sales of US products overseas, caused companies to close or move outside the US, ready to close critical portions of the federal goverment for years to slow down investigation of his crimes and treason, ready to delay tax refunds to Americans, and adversely impact future US economy in favor of Russia and Saudi Arabia.
January 2: Trump announced that his military forces are a failure and led by incompetent generals who have squandered $1.5 trillion that he gave to them.
Trump also claimed he "got rid of" Senators Jeff Flake and Bob Corker. Trump trashed incoming Senator MItt Romney. And, Trump claimed that he fired DOD Secretary James Mattis because he was a weak crybaby.
January 2: "Trump will not be removed from office by the Constitutional impeachment and removal process. Instead, the self-professed supreme dealmaker will use his presidency as a bargaining chip with federal and state authorities in 2019, agreeing to leave office in exchange for the relevant authorities not pursuing criminal charges against him, his children or the Trump Organization. Trump will be impeached by the House of Representatives for high crimes and misdemeanors." (Alan Steinberg, senior position in George Bush administration)
January 1: "It is my sincere hope that the forthcoming exposure of your malfeasance & corruption will convince enough Republicans to abandon you in 2019. We have had enough of your whining from the White House. We need an actual leader—our Nation’s future is at stake." (CIA Director John Brennan)Trump: Dishonest and Immoral
