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.
Pre-election entries appear on the 'ORIGINAL SITE' link above. November 2016 election to December 2017 entries via link on bottom of this column. The site's entries and analyses are voluminous because the number of adverse events is voluminous.
December 25: Trump's Christmas day message. "It's a disgrace what's happening in our country. But other than that, I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas." The world agrees.
December 24: Trump spent Chrismas Eve attacking congressional republicans and top people he put into their position, whining that he is all alone in the White House. So sad.
No doubt Trump is contemplating how he would have caged and tortured 3 migrants 2,000 years ago. Mary, Joseph and Jesus. For Trump, escaping persecution and a governmental death threat is no excuse to seek asylum.
December 24: The Trump economy. Worst stock market since the great recession in 2008. Worst December since the great depression almost 90 years ago. Worst Christmas Eve in US history, the market losing 3% of its value in just one day. Trump called the CEO's of the 6 largest banks to be sure they have enough available money, ie liquidity. Three Trump government shutdowns in 2018. In the last month, Trump has caused Americans to lose trillions of dollars. The world, facing Trump economy themselves, is worried that Trump will cause an even larger crash in the stock market, which would lead to massive unemployment everywhere. Trump is breaking the US and the world for his masters in Russia and Saudi Arabia.
Corporations only repatriated about 10% of the trillions Trump promised would occur with his bogus tax law. Companies shared with employees a fraction of what Trump promised. Companies also closed US manufacturing plants and moved them outside the US.
To a president without any external ethical framework, folks who resign on principle must be confusing. (James Comey)
December 22: Since Trump decided to support ISIS against the US, the official Brett McGurk, charged with leading the fight against ISIS resigned, adding to DOD Secretary James Mattis' resignation in protest of Trump and general depression inside the Pentagon and by soldiers at their stations. (Trump announced that he didn't know his lead official organizing the fight against ISIS)
WARNING: Trump is setting the stage to make the US a minor player on the world stage. This could abruptly happen, easily, if China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Turkey unite and agree to discontinue trade with the US and share their nuclear weapons. The immediate crisis in the US would be followed by decades-long diminution of the US American jobs, income and prospects would be devastated and US national security would be mostly ruined.
Trump is a puppet of Russia and Saudi Arabia, and possibly of China, Turkey and North Korea. He is indebted hundreds of millions of dollars to Russia, China and Turkey, who all have documentary evidence of Trump's bribery, money laundering and bank fraud.
December 22: Trump stopped income to over 800,000 federal works and bragged that he hopes to do so for a long time to further weaken the US in favor of Russia. (this is Trump's THIRD shutdown in one year)
December 21: Trump actually tweeted his image of the wall, slats with spikes on top to torture, kill and display non-whites caught. Far worse, a third of Americans cheer. A Trump throwback to the gladiator Roman Colosseum days when Christians were ripped apart for entertainment. (the targets for Trump impalements are Christian)
December 20: Encouraged by Trump, Russia and North Korea warned of nuclear war against the US. Combined with his encouragement of ISIS and Al Qaeda and his degradation of US national security, Trump is feeding global terrorism and chaos to feed his bank accounts and to stay out of prison for his crimes and treason.
December 19: To further degrade the US FOR Putin, Trump forced Secretary of Defense James Mattis to resign in protest because of Trump's corruption and danger. For Putin, Trump is destabilizing the world. Disaster looms from Trump's degradation of America and its allies in favor of Russia, Turkey, North Korea and Iran.
"Just read Gen. Mattis resignation letter. It makes it abundantly clear that we are headed towards a series of grave policy errors which will endanger our nation,damage our alliances & empower our adversaries." (Senator Marco Rubio)
while busy crashing the stock market, shutting down the federal government at Christmas time, declaring the end of ISIS to turn Syria over to Russia and Iran, fighting mothers and children at the southern border, breaking health care, degrading national security and law enforcement, and conjuring new lies and crimes for his panoply of crimes now that every organization he ever ran is under criminal investigation
pleasing Putin with extreme degradation of the presidency and America
December 18: A blind amphibian creature that buries its head in the sand was discovered recently has been named after Trump, Dermophis donaldtrumpi.
December 19: Performing poorly in 17 criminal investigations against him, Trump declared the he eliminated ISIS and thus will withdraw all US troops from Syria. A lie that will lead to mass murder and ISIS resurgence. Just a few days ago, the Pentagon said that there are 30,000 ISIS fighters in Syria and we are a long way from eliminating ISIS. Trump's bogus declaration of victory is actually a victory for his patron, Putin.
Once again, Trump undermines US national security professionals with lies in order to benefit Putin, claiming "I know more about ISIS than the generals do, believe me."
The world no longer trusts the US or can rely on the US, which is making the world more dangerous and more fascist.
"Eight days ago the Administration called a hypothetical pullout ‘reckless.’ Today, we're leaving. The President's generals have no idea where this weak decision came from: They believe the high-fiving winners today are Iran, ISIS, and Hezbollah. The losers are Israel, humanitarian victims, and U.S. intelligence gathering. A lot of American allies will be slaughtered if this retreat is implemented."(Senator Ben Sasse)
Update: Trump also gave Putin another honorarium, reduction of sanctions against a close pal of Putin and bank to Paul Manafort. In turn, Putin applauded Trump for 2 big gifts today.
"Senior officials across the Administration agree that the President’s decision-by-tweet will recklessly put American and allied lives in danger around the world, take the pressure off of ISIS allowing them to reconstitute, and hand a strategic victory to our Syrian, Iranian, and Russian adversaries. It’s a mistake of colossal proportions and the President fails to see how it will endanger our country." (Jake Tapper)
"An attack such as the one in eastern Syria reinforces a view that is widely held among U.S. military and intelligence officials, as well as U.S. allies in region: Even as the territory claimed by the Islamic State continues to shrink, the group remains a powerful and deadly force across large swaths of Syria and Iraq. In some regions, the Islamist militants appear to be gaining ground, reconstituting themselves as a brutal insurgency bent on killing local leaders and police officers and terrorizing populations, officials and analysts say." (Washington Post)
Putin agrees with Trump, or vice versa. White House officials, the Pentagon, the CIA, the Congress and national security experts do not.
Update: In addition to clearing way for return of terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, Trump is doing the same in Afghanistan by removal of most troops, "setting in motion the loss of all our gains and paving the way toward a second 9/11." (Senator Lindsay Graham)
"People around the world are asking this and some of our friends and our allies in the Middle East are asking, did Erdoğan blackmail the president? Was there a payoff or something? Why would a guy make a decision like this? Because all the recommendations were against it." (Former NATO Commander Wesley Clark)
December 18: Trump deserves the judge sentencing Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.
"I am not hiding my disgust, my disdain for your criminal offense. I want to be frank with you, this crime is very serious. The aggravating circumstances are serious. Not only did you lie to the FBI, you lied to senior officials in the incoming administration. A high ranking official of the government. Making false statements in the White House is a very serious offense. All along, you were an unregistered agent of a foreign country while serving as the National Security Adviser to the President of the United States. That undermines everything this flag over here stands for. Arguably you sold your country out." The federal judge felt that Flynn could have been charged with treason."
Flynn admitted that he committed an array of crimes and the federal judge said that Flynn "sold his country out," thus rebuking Trump and his co-conspirators in Congress and Fox News, who claimed that Flynn was allowed to lie under oath and that the judge was so good that he would throw out Flynn's case. Flynn said he was not trapped and that he lied again and again. Flynn said he was guilty, in effect saying under oath that Trump was a liar.
Trump has committed far more crimes and treason than Flynn and should be sent to prison the rest of his life with his co-conspirators.
UPDATE: So shocked by the judge's condemnation and fearing a prison sentence, Flynn pleaded with the judge to postpone sentencing so that Flynn can more fully cooperate with prosecutors and perhaps earn less if any prison sentence.
UPDATE: Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered treasonous Flynn to surrender his passport and remain within 50 miles of Washington, D.C. in order not to escape to Russia and run away from justice. Traitor.
December 18: Trump's fake and criminal charity foundation was forced to dissolve under judicial supervision. Trump used the foundation as an illegal slush fund to pay his personal bills and make campaign donations.
"Our petition detailed a shocking pattern of illegality involving the Trump Foundation -- including unlawful coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing, and much more. This amounted to the Trump Foundation functioning as little more than a checkbook to serve Mr. Trump's business and political interests," NY Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement.
The Attorney General's lawsuit against Trump and his criminal foundation continues; today's news only covered the forced termination of the criminal foundation.
Newsflash...Trump and Putin are secretly, well not so secretly, conspiring against the US, attacking the FBI, the rule of law, the courts, the government, national security, the presidency, journalists, the Constitution, non-whites, civility, infrastructure, the military, NATO and asylum seekers. Both rely on lies, blaming others, fear, social media fraud, bank fraud, weakening the economy and bogus conspiracies - all devised together. Trump and Putin...what a pair.
December 15: "He is a terrible human being. Do I like Trump? No. Is he a role model for my son? Absolutely not." (Trump's 3rd Chief of Staff, Mick Mulvaney)
December 15: After redesigning what congress did in the Affordable Care Act, aka ObamaCare and endorsed by the US Supreme Court, a judge outlawed the law. Trump celebrated the ensuing loss of coverage to 20 million Americans, loss of coverage for pre-existing illnesses, loss of coverage for young adults, loss of various Medicare benefits increase in Medicare cost, increase health care costs for everyone and obliteration of Medicaid. Trump wants health care only for the wealthy.
Just a few days ago, Trump said he would be proud to shut down the federal government and immediately put 300,000 federal employees out of work for Christmas, which would expand to over a million and cost Americans billions of dollars, loss of national security and further trashing what America stands for.
December 15: Everything about Trump is under criminal investigation. His company, his sexual assaults and payoffs, his election campaign, his treason, his fraud and money laundering, his banking crimes, his inauguration committee, his family, his Cabinet appointments, his White House staff, his Russian and Saudi business partners, his fake charity foundation, his business associates, his personal attorney and chief corporate lawyer, his violations of the US Constitution and no doubt other areas we don't know about yet. Trump University has already been determined to be a fraud. Trump is a master criminal.
Trump is being investigated by the Special Counsel, 2 US attorney offices, several state attorneys general, several US citizens, the US Senate and the US House. Several Trump associates are in or going to prison, several others have pleaded guilty to crimes, several others are being investigated for their crimes. Trump presideds over a large criminal empire similar to and association with the mafia.
So guilty of crimes and treason, Trump's lawyers will not allow him to testify under oath. They know he will lie, confirm the facts of his crimes and treason, and probably start crying, begging not to be sent to prison like top members of his company, campaign and White House.
Is there anyone who wants to hang with Donald Trump? He’s not wanted. Not at funerals, though the Bush family, to show class and respect for tradition, held their noses and made an exception. Not in England, where they turned him into a big, hideous blimp. He’s forever fixated on how wanted he is (“My crowds!” “My ratings!”), but what’s more striking is how unwanted he is. And that’s not merely a function of the crests and dips that every president encounters. It’s not really about popularity at all. It’s about how he behaves — and the predictable harvest of all that nastiness. While other presidents sought to hone the art of persuasion, he revels in his talent for repulsion: how many people he attacks (he styles this as boldness); how many people he offends (he pretties this up as authenticity); how many people he sends into exile. His administration doesn’t have alumni so much as refugees. (Frank Bruni)
December 12: For an array of federal crimes directed and inspired by Trump, his personal attorney and Executive VP in Trump Org., Michael Cohen, was sentenced to 3 years in federal prison and ordered to pay $1 million in restitution and $50,000 in fine. One of these crimes was criminal campaign finance directed by Trump and implemented by Cohen (and the National Enquirer) to influence Trump's election campaign a few weeks before the election...confirmed by the owner of the National Enquirer to hide Trump's year-long affair with a Playboy model about the time Trump's 3rd wife Melania gave birth to Trump's youngest son.
Fox News legal analyst Andrew Napolitano. "Career prosecutors here in New York have evidence that the president of the United States committed a felony by ordering and paying Michael Cohen to break the law. How do we know that? They told that to the federal judge. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to the federal judge unless they actually have that hardcore evidence. Under the rules, they can’t tell that to the federal judge unless they intend to do something with that evidence. The felony is paying Michael Cohen to commit a felony. It’s pretty basic. You pay someone to commit a crime, they commit the crime. You are liable, criminally liable for the commission of that crime. That’s what the prosecutors told the federal judge."
Michael Cohen. I blame myself for the conduct which has brought me here today, and it was my own weakness, and a blind loyalty to this man that led me to choose a path of darkness over light. Recently, the President Tweeted a statement calling me weak, and he was correct, but for a much different reason than he was implying. It was because time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds rather than to listen to my own inner voice and my moral compass.
December 11: Trump announced his plan to change the purpose of the US military from protecting the US to becoming construction workers to build a ridiculous wall. Trump can't figure out that people can simply go around or fly over or dig under walls. Thusly, Trump will remove barriers to Russia's invasion of the US.
To cancel income checks for millions of workers Trump announced he will shut down the US government if he does not get $5 billion for his ridiculous wall.
Shame on the United States. Trump is transforming the US into a fascist state and collaborator with mass murderers, racists and criminals. He is degrading the rule of law and US national security. He is turning democracy into a tool of oppression. He is making millions from his misadventures, violating US laws and the US Constitution.
Mens Rea refers to criminal intent. The literal translation from Latin is "guilty mind." Via Twitter and his fascist/racist rallies, Trump is screaming guilt. Lies, threats, corruption and conspiracies are used increasingly by Trump to stoke the most gullible he can find, to degrade the US as investigations find wider and deeper crimes and treason.
Dictatorships around the world applaud Trump's US degradation. Trump has turned daily life in the US into non-stop chaos and the world leader in environmental destruction,corruption, imprisoning children, white supremacy, promoting global turmoil, degradation of the UN and NATO, and long-term economic destruction.
December 8: Trump is a traitor, a pervert, a pedophile, as sexual assaulter, a liar, a cheat, a clown, a draft dodger....and so on. He is also obscene, saying about Senator Richard Blumenthal, "Watched Da Nang Dick Blumenthal on television spewing facts almost as accurate as his bravery in Vietnam (which he never saw). Next time I go to Vietnam I will ask 'the Dick' to travel with me!"
December 7: Rex Tillerson, Trump Secretary of State. "So often, the president would say here's what I want to do and here's how I want to do it and I would have to say to him, 'Mr. President, I understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. It violates the law.' What Russia wants to do is undermine our confidence and undermine the world’s confidence in us. What’s challenging for me ... is to go to work for a man who is pretty undisciplined, doesn’t like to read, doesn’t read briefing reports, doesn’t like to get into the details of a lot of things. We are starkly different in our styles, we did not have a common value system."
Trump's response. "Mike Pompeo is doing a great job, I am very proud of him. His predecessor, Rex Tillerson, didn’t have the mental capacity needed. He was dumb as a rock and I couldn’t get rid of him fast enough. He was lazy as hell."
December 5: Some of the hundreds of millions of dollars given to Trump by Saudi Arabia are for 500 rooms in Trump's DC hotel. Saudi Arabia think they own Trump, and Trump shows they do. (yet another Trump violation of the US Constitution)
Trump Is More Loyal to Dictators Than to the U.S.
December 4: Trump announced that only he, Putin and Xi Jinping (China's president) can save the world. Not citizens, not Americans, no one but Trump, Putin and Xi. Dictators, greed and corruption will rule the world according to Trump, jailing and killing those who disagree.
Putin and Xi are thrilled to control Trump.
December 3: A couple months ago, a patriot's casket was carried into the Capitol, Senator John McCain. Today, another patriot's casket was carried into the Capitol. President George H. W. Bush. Both were shot down in their plane in war. Both were the highest level of patriot known to the US. Both were firmly dedicated to the United States, democracy, American ideals, truth, the rule of law and all Americans. Both were attacked by Trump, both are despised by Trump. Why? Because they were exemplary Americans and Trump is not. Trump despises what Senator McCain and President Bush were dedicated to. Trump only admires greed and treason.
Unlike McCain and Bush, Trump is owned by Putin.
November 30: Trump is the laughing stock of the world's leaders at the G20 Summit. The US is being disgraced by an idiot, whose incompetence and treason are exonerating and elevating the two most vile dictators on earth.
our 'useful idiot' degrades America even more than we do
November 29: Trump's crimes and treason, recognized for last 3 years, are now getting deeper attention by the Dept. of Justice, courts, state attorneys general and private litigants (eg, Senators, women, states, businesses). Significant attention will finally happen in Congress beginning January 2017 as the US House of Representatives finally observes its constitutional duty to oversee Trump. It is now clear that Trump is indebted to Russia and Saudi Arabia, from both of whom Trump has disclosed he received hundreds of millions of dollars, at least. Eg, Trump, after exhausting standard sources of loans due his long record of bankruptcies, Trump found the bank Deutche Bank, a major conduit for Russian money laundering. Trump still owes this 'bank' hundreds of millions of dollars of loans. Russia's second largest bank, VTB, ran by a close Putin associate, is perhaps the largest money launderer with Deutche Bank. Trump secured 100% funding for his largest business venture, Trump Tower in Moscow, from VTB, hundreds of millions of dollars. Trump offered Putin the $50 penthouse in this tower to sweeten the corruption. All that was left to do was get the US to drop sanctions against VTB by getting a "useful idiot" elected as US president. So, Trump collaborated with Putin to defraud US voters and tilt the election to Trump to degrade the US and to enrich Trump and Putin. All crimes....Trump negotiated massive loans with banks prohibited to be used by US citizens and his Putin offer violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. In parallel fashion, Trump is also collaborating with the crown prince of Saudi Arabia AGAINST the US. Trump is thoroughly corrupt and treasonous.
And, Trump is degrading US national security protection, eg dismissing the CIA, attacking the FBI, using the military for local police actions, degrading military commanders, breaking US national security institutions, installing corrupt judges, installing a corrupt attorney general and on and on.
November 29: Another day for criminal Trump's criminal empire. His lawyer, Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty of being a conduit between Trump and Putin business interests DURING 2016 (while Putin, in turn, tilted the election to Trump though a wide array of crimes). Also today, the Russian money laundering bank in Germany to which Trump owes $360 million was raided, and Trump's accountant law firm in Chicago was raided. Also revealed today, Trump offered Putin a $50 million penthouse in a Trump property, funded by Russia, as a bribe for Putin's services to Trump. Quid pro quo, collusion, conspiracy, criminal, treason.
Within 10 minutes of Trump confirming his meeting next week with Putin, Trump was forced to cancel this meeting and collaborate with Putin secretly.
Amazingly, Rudy Giuliani, on behalf of Trump, announced that Trump's official answers to Robert Mueller last week are consistent with Cohen's guilty plea!
During the campaign, Trump bragged that he made hundreds of millions of dollars from Russians. His son a few years earlier bragged the family had most of its money in Russia.
November 29: The Wall Street Journal issued a correction today after it referred to the Russian president as “Vladimir Trump.”
November 25: Trump hates non-white children and babies. He has 14,000 in captivity. Today, he started tear gassing children he has not yet captured. He has authorized the military to massacre them.
November 22: Everyday, Trump invents another lame excuse for assassinated and sawed apart an American. Today's stupid excuse, the world did it. It was not the actual killer, Trump's longtime business partner, the crown prince of Saudi Arabia,
November 22: It's Thanksgiving. Trump authorized the US military to kill starving mothers and children trying to escape torture, rape and murder.
The US is no longer a moral country.
Trump is degrading the US to just another Russia, North Korea, Saudi Arabia and Iran.
November 20: A few months ago, Trump ordered the prosecution and imprisonment of Hillary Clinton and FBI Director James Comey. White House Counsel Don McGahn refused and told Trump that his order was a crime and an impeachable offense. Trump fired McGahn and put a con artist after conspiring with him to prosecute Clinton and Comey, Matthew Whitaker, in charge of the Dept. of Justice to derail criminal investigations of his business partners and himself. Criminal, anti-Constitutional, anti-American.
November 20: Trump pledged loyalty to his partner in crimes against the US, Saudi Arabia, and exonerated its murder and dismembering a journalist for the Washington Post and its funding of terrorism against the US.
Thusly, Trump endorsed the murderer of a US resident and father of US citizens to keep alive Trump's criminal businesses with Saudi Arabia.
Once again, Trump dismisses findings of the CIA, first that Russia tilted the election to Trump and now about CIA's findings that the crown prince of Saudi Arabia ordered the brutal murder and dismemberment with a bone saw of an American resident and journalist. Trump prefers Russia and Saudi Arabia, terrorist dictatorships that torture and murder journalists and political adversaries, to the US.
Once a traitor, always a traitor. Trump intends the world to see that the US has abandoned its values and morality. Sadly, Trump co-conspirators against the US in congress, the judiciary and Dept. of Justice, endorse and implement Trump's desecration of America.
Trump tells everyone in the world, kill anyone you want as long as you pay Trump.
November 20: After spending $220 million as an election stunt, sending thousands of soldiers to the border with Mexico to ward off non whites hundreds of miles away, Trump is withdrawing US military troops (not that the non whites have reached the border).
November 19: Having been 2 years in office as commander in chief, Trump has yet to visit the troops. He says he is scared. Must be fake bone spurs.
And, Trump attacked the military plan and soldiers who killed Osama bin Laden.
November 19: Will Trump throw his daughter Ivanka in jail. During the campaign and at campaign rallies now, Trump cheers his desire to jail Hillary Clinton, "lock her up," for using a non goverment email account. Well, Ivanka used non goverment accounts for hundreds of emails pertaining to government business. Lock her up?
November 16: The bogus dictator strikes again. After a year trying to answer Mueller questions without lying, Trump and his lawyers concede they cannot do it. So, Trump announced that he answered the questions all by himself, isn't that nice, adding that it was easy. He has no idea when he will send his easy answers to Mueller. His lawyers say they open him to criminal prosecution.
November 15: While 50 countries did, 2 countries did not. Trump and Putin will not sign a pledge to fight cybercrimes, including interference in elections. Neither can win elections without fraud.
November 15: Trump has infected the Dept. of Defense with his incapacity to pass financial audits. For the first time in history, Trump induced DOD to fail its financial audit. So much corruption is hard to hide.
November 11: About Trump and his itching for a new world war on the anniversary of the first world war that ended 100 years ago, the president of France said, "Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By putting our own interests first, with no regard for others, we erase the very thing that a nation holds dearest, and the thing that keeps it alive: its moral values. Old demons are rising again. New ideologies are manipulating religions, and history is threatening to repeat its tragedies. Let us vow once more as nations to ensure peace is the utmost priority, above all else, because we know what it cost." Trump is portraying the US as the enemy of the people.
Under Trump, the US is taking its turn with fascism aimed at world war.
November 10: From Winston Churchill's grandson for skipping a visit to the Ainse-Marne American Cemetery and Memorial in northern France because of rain . "They died with their face to the foe and that pathetic inadequate Trump couldn’t even defy the weather to pay his respects to The Fallen."
Trump could not show up to 100 year commemoration of end of WWI.
And, Trump gave the finger to the world and US veterans by not joining the world in the parade of world leaders commemorating the end of WWI. If an African American US president performed like Trump, Fox News would go crazy.
November 10: Proving that he was only interfering with the election, Trump, after the election, stopped his emergency war advertising campaign against Hispanic women and mothers escaping rape and murder.
November 9: Liar again. Trump announced that he never met his pick for Attorney General and did not know who he was. An obvious lie. Not only is the AG a top Cabinet position, he met with with him several times in the White House to plot against Hillary Clinton, the FBI, the DOJ and Robert Meuller.
Trump ignored easy to find information about his AG pick establishing him as a con artist, corrupt and incompetent. Illegally, he threatened jail time for his critics.
November 8: Another Trump-encouraged mass murder happened last night, this one killing 12. More guns Trump says. More Americans gunned down Trump says. More suffering in American families Trump says. (some of those at the murder venue were also present during last year's mass murder in Las Vegas) (307 mass shooting in US so far in 2018)
November 7: Trump announced that he will, in violation of the US Constitution, order the US Senate to prosecute the US House of Representatives and dare to its job to oversee the executive branch of government.
November 7: Trump escalated his obstruction of justice crimes. He fired Attorney Jeff Sessions because Sessions would not interfere with justice, a crime. for Trump. Trump found a replacement that will assist Trump as a spy inside DOJ to interfere with justice and immediately removed Rod Rosenstein from oversight of the the 'Mueller Investigation'. Months ago, Trump planted this co-conspirator against the US inside the Dept. of Justice, often attacking Mueller in the media during the summer of 2017. Trump is orders of magnitude a greater criminal than any politician or government official in US history.
Trump's Attorney General choice is a con-artist criminal. Like Trump who operated a fake university, Trump's AG operated a fake patent company that was fined over $1 million by the FTC for stealing $26 million and threatening his victims with death. Trump's choice also attacked the Mueller investigation last year, attracting him to Trump. Trump's pick ran a fake organization to attack Democrats. Trump's pick attacked Dr. Christine Ford Blasey for identifying Brett Kavanaugh as her attempted rapist. In fact, Trump's pick falsely identified someone else for the crime.So criminal, even Fox News' Judge Anthony Nepolitano said that Trump's pick is an illegitimate AG. And, Kellyanne Conway's husband said that Trump's pick was put in charge of the DOJ in violation of the US Constitution and is illegal.
Trump and his new attorney general thrive on lies, corruption and deception to steal millions from consumers and violate the US Constitution. Both dismiss the judicial branch of goverment as inferior.
November 7: Trump is screaming that he won the midterm election yesterday, proud of his racist and anti-American supporters. Indeed, Trump won continuation of his fake Republican control of the US Senate. But, Trump LOST several state governors and the US House, and will finally be subject to open American investigation of his corruption and fascism. And, Trump has charted the course for non-whites, African Americans, Hispanics, women, young people, voters registered as independent, gays and college-educated people to leave the party of fake Anti-American Republicans. America will return. Eventually, the party of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan will return as well to contribute to America.
Notably, 'Republicans' also elected a candidate indicted for serious crimes and a dead owner of a brothel. Another indicted Republican candidate appears will also win.
November 6: Election Day. Trump has pushed the US to violence, racism, fraud, voter suppression, white supremacy and against the USA. So racist, his last campaign ad was refused airing by even Fox News, joining other networks and Facebook. Trump has assaulted the US military, sending them to the border with Mexico to layout barbed wire and build tent prisons for women and children fleeing rape and murder. Trump's lies are screaming against tens of millions US voters. Trump has painted his vision of America as a wasteland of zombies better served by fascism. No true American would vote for Trump or what he stands for; sadly millions of fake Americans will.
November 2: Emergency Alert from Trump. The US is under siege by hungry women and their children scared of rape and murder. They are dangerous invaders to Trump, the same term used by the killer of 11 Jews in Pittsburgh last Friday. They are a bigger enemy than Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, child molesters and millions of hardened criminals in the US. So, Trump is sending 15,000 military troops against the women and their children to kill them should a child throw a stone toward the US. Illegal of course. Constitution violation of course. Immoral of course. What else is new for Trump?
To prove he is a racist, Trump is now advertising against non-whites in his campaign marketing. He is determined to demonize and kill non-whites.
November 2: Trump has lied 6,420 times in 649 days. He claims he only tries to tell the truth when he can. Obviously, he never can. His lies are exploding for the election next week.
October 31: Now that he is sending 5,200 military troops to the border with Mexico to kill if they have to a couple thousand non-white mothers with children, Trump announced he will increase this to 15,000. Thus, Trump believes that non-white mothers and children are more dangerous that the Taliban and ISIS in Afghanistan, where the US has 14,000 troops. Trump will spend billions of dollars to threaten and possibly massacre non-white mothers and children, calling them an invasion force that will be repelled by 15,000 soldiers PLUS thousands of border patrol officers.
There is no legitimate military purpose to Trump's MILITARY war against non-whites.
October 30: Two years ago, 3 Trump supporters plotted to kill Somali refugees by blowing up an apartment complex in Kansas that contained a mosque. They were found guilty in April and face a maximum sentence of life in prison. A defense lawyer is asking for a more lenient sentence, arguing that the court consider the "backdrop" of the case: then-candidate Donald Trump's polarizing rhetoric. "The court cannot ignore the circumstances of one of the most rhetorically mold-breaking, violent, awful, hateful and contentious presidential elections in modern history, driven in large measure by the rhetorical China shop bull who is now our president."
October 30: Revealed today, Trump assisted Saudi Arabia to assassinate a Washington Post journalist, using Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner to deliver to the crown prince a murder hit list of 100 persons. Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman bragged of receiving classified US intelligence from Jared Kushner and using it as part of a purge of perceived foes of Trump and bin Salman.
October 30: Another day, another racist attack. Trump attacked gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum "a stone-cold thief," a derogatory stereotype Trump uses against African Americans.
October 30: Trump announced that he will again violate the US Constitution and disallow citizenship of those born in the US with foreign parents.
October 30: Like he did at his first NATO meeting pushing everyone aside to get to the front, Trump is going to Pittsburgh to push aside the funerals and caskets of those murdered last Friday (the largest mass murder of Jews in US history).
October 29: Trump sending 5,000 troops and war machines to defend from what he calls an invasion. The 'invasion' consists of non-white mothers and their children, some still in diapers. Trump is sending enough bullets and bombs to kill them several times over.
October 29: The 15th Trump Bomb, in 7 days, was found, the second sent to kill CNN employees and journalists, this time trying to also destroy CNN headquarters in Atlanta. Trump is attacking the US any way he can, through his supporters, through his tweets, through his rallies, through his white supremacy/nationalism, through his encouragement of terrorizing non-whites, through his degradations of national security and the FBI, through his making it the official policy of the US government to lable the press the enemy of the people, and through Russia.
Trump is creating the hostile environment for racists and religious zelots to threaten, attack and murder.
Trump has created a conservative Supreme Court to conserve and expand racism, white supremacy, neo-Nacism, bigotry, sexual assault, threats to US national security and government corruption to degrade Americans and the Constitution.
Truly amazing. Trump brags and enjoys stirring his sociopathic fans into violent frenzy aiming their Trump hate at enemies listed, demeaned and dehumanized by Trump, endorsing violence toward his hit list with promises to pay the legal bills...but then claims his intended hate inspirations have nothing to do with his supporters exercising their Trump hate to terrorize Trump's hit list of officials with pipe bombs and to kill with military assault weapons.
October 28: Another member of a key Trump fan base, neo-Nazis, charged into a Jewish synagogue and murdered, with a military weapon endorsed by Trump, at least 11 people murdered, injuring several others. This is the worst attack on Jews in the history of the US. Trump claimed the incident had nothing to do with guns but urged synagogues to have guns on premises so that gun battles could occur. (the 295th mass shooting in 2018)
This week, a white man sent bombs to democrats; another white man shot and killed black patrons at Kroger; and another white man just killed 8 at a synagogue and 3 officers. We don’t have a caravan problem. We have a white male domestic terrorism problem, white males inspired by Trump to kill. But Trump calls mothers with their babies in diapers a national security threat, not the white killers.
Rather than consider this past week and explore solutions, Trump went to a rally to stir up the hate that causes these murders, watched a baseball game and dreamed of stealing more children from their mothers to victimize them, to cage them and to sexually assault them. Trump seethes with hate for non-whites and America's values. (Trump considered cancelling the rally because of a bad hair day, but he could not resist feeding hate and went ahead with his hate rally)
The only thing wrong with all the Trump-inspired bombs and killing for Trump is that the mahyem interferes with his campaign message, more hate, more encouragement of violence, more degradation of America.
October 28: The Trump Bomber was Trump's ideal supporter. White supremacist, anti-immigrant, anti-gay, anti-Jew, anti-CNN, anti- Democrat, anti-American. He was a a long-time criminal, mentally unfit, a sociopath, lie lover, truth hater and Trump groupie, driving to Trump's rallies and inauguration blasting violent slogans and gestures. A big fan of Trump-like social media accounts as well to spread Trump's attacks against America.
October 26: The Trump Bomber, on behalf of Trump sent explosive devices to 2 US Presidents and several other government officials because Trump said they were his enemies and sub-human. Trump's problem with this unprecedented terrorist attack against the US was to whine that it is being covered by the media instead of covering his campaign prowess.
Notably, Trump's casting the FBI and DOJ as corrupt and incompetent found the Trump Bomber in merely several hours after the first bombs were discovered.
October 26: Trump attacked the media for covering the ongoing discovery of pipe bombs sent to officials Trump calls his enemies. Trump says the story is fake news about fake bombs. Rather than cover the largest terrorist attack in US history on behalf of Trump, Trump demands that the media only promote voters to vote for Republicans on behalf of Trump.
Update: Information Trump did not want released. A suspect involved with this terrorist attack against the US has been arrested in Plantation, FL, about 50 miles from Trump's Florida headquarters. A male in his 50s with a criminal history. NOTE: the suspects white van is plastered with pictures of Trump and the presidential seal. Trump ordered the van covered up with a blue tarp to hide dozens of pro-Trump images on this Trump campaign vehicle, a cover up before our eyes.
October 25: To be able to murder them all, Trump is sending the US military to the border with Mexico to defend the US against mothers and their children in diapers, hungry and scared of being raped and killed in their own country. Their crime according to Trump: they are not white. They are the biggest threat against the US says Trump. Machine guns, tanks, war machines, drones, satellites, everything the DOD can send will find and kill if necessary these mothers and their children.
Update: Trump declared these mothers and their children enemies of the US posing a national security threat, and thus subject to harassment, stealing of their children, being caged and being murdered.
Trump shows why and how white-collar criminals get away with stealing hundreds of billions of dollars and killing thousands every year. Lie, project their crimes onto others, blame others and deploy corrupt lawyers. The media can't fathom the depth of the crimes. Law enforcement officials are over their head.
THE US IS UNDER ATTACK. FROM RUSSIA AND NOW IN A VIOLENT WAY FROM TRUMP. The biggest multi-location multi-target assassination and attack against the US in history IS BEING PERPETRATED. Trump's favorite hit list was targeted for murder by 14 pipe bombs to rid Trump of most of what he calls his enemies an enemies of the US to rationalize targeting them for murder. Trump's war against America turns to bombs. Most if not all the bombs were sent from south Florida, near Trump's 'southern White House' to murder officials Trump has targeted and those around them. Hundreds of American lives have been put at risk to a death sentence by pipe bomb.
October 24: With his blessing, Trump's supporters are trying to bomb Trump-targeted CNN, President Barack Obama and his wife at their home, President President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who won the popular vote for president by 3,000 votes at their home and thus Trump's major target for assassination, Vice President Joe Biden and front runner to run against Trump in 2020 (2 bombs), Attorney General Eric Holder, Governor Andrew Cuomo, Representative Maxine Waters (2 bombs), CIA Director John Brennan, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former DNC director Representative Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Senator Pamela Harris, Senator Cory Booker, actor Robert De Niro and Democratic megadonor Tom Steyer. Democratic supporters at their homes and newspaper companies attempting to kill as many Democrats, their children and non-whites as they could. All the bombs were functional pipe bombs intended to kill hundreds and possibly burn the CNN building down. Trump may be beginning the second Civil War he promised.
Trump and his supporters are the biggest terrorists in the US, murder and degradation of women and the US their goal.
Even hours after today's bomb threats, Trump had nothing to say except to agree with VP Mike Pence. No rebuke of the threats out of his mouth or twitter finger.
Finally, after more than 5 hours after several pipe bombs were found for the biggest terrorist attack in US history, Trump swaggered to the microphone for ONE minute to read teleprompter text about the terrorist attack against his will. He quickly changed the subject to the opioid epidemic. The US is attacked, and Trump prefers to talk about opiouds and get ready for a campaign rally to rouse his supporters to attack journalists and Democrats. At this campain rally, Trump again blamed Democrats and journalists for being evil and deserving of injury and murder. (note, Trump's meager comment FOLLOWED his wife's condemnation of the attacks; her speech last must longer than his)
Just a few days ago, Trump applauded criminal assault against a journalist by a member of congress, and fired up thousands at his hate rally to join him.
Trump continues to encourage attacks against the US by Russia.
Trump also attacks the media and has openly encouraged his supporters to attack journalists. Some have. Hundreds of journalists pleaded for Trump to stop before more are injured or killed.
October 24: Trump is so determined to degrade US national security that he is permitting Russia and China to tape record his telephone conversations.
October 23: Putin congratulated and thanked Trump for breaking America on Putin's behalf.
In a wide-ranging exposition at the annual Valdai forum, Mr Putin continually returned to the idea that US hegemony was the cause of many global ills – but that its twilight offered opportunities for Russia and its friends. Putin used his annual foreign policy address to herald the end of U.S. dominance and tout Moscow's growing military might and diplomatic reach. Putin is delighted by Trump's producing of decline in US prestige and positive influence, and congratulated Trump for listening to Trump. He does what I say according to Putin.
Putin is assisting Trump's terrorism.
October 22: Like his dictator role models, eg Hitler, Trump announced that he is a nationalist and seeks to change US government from democracy into one based on lies, fear and radicalism against non-whites. Trump intends the US to be for whites only. Trump has elevated lies and fear to official public policy. Sadly, like in Germany during the 1930s, Trump has captivated tens of millions of Americans to follow his lead to turn the US into a fascist state wherein the public is turned against truth, the rule of law, education, open trade and societal institutions. Trump also seeks to turn the US into a mafia state wherein he sells protection to conventional US allies, threatens these allies by encouraging Russian military preparations against Europe and NATO. Unlike previous fascists, Trump seeks to unleash a nuclear free for all, charting reduced barriers against Russian and Chinese nuclear proliferation.
The term Nationalists or Nationals (nacionales) was coined by Joseph Goebbels following the visit of the clandestine Spanish delegation led by Captain Francisco Arranz requesting war material on 24 July 1936, in order to give a cloak of legitimacy to Nazi German help to the Spanish rebel military.
Like Hitler, Trump is a racist and calls journalists "the enemy of the people."
Retired KKK Grand Wizard David Duke applauded again Trump's white supremacy, white nationalism and racism.
October 20: Trump brags that he is the king of creating jobs. His 5,000th lie. Facts: Trump, 3.8 million; Obama, 17.2 million, Clinton: 21.5 million. For jobs and the stock market, Trump is simply riding the opportunity given him by Obama.
October 19: Trump invoked his usual defense regarding the torture and murder of an American resident and Washington Post journalist by Saudi Arabia, blame the victim. All week, Trump TV, aka Fox/fake News, has been bashing the journalist, claiming falsely that he was a terrorist and all around bad guy. Trump then convinced Saudi Arabia to claim that their torture/murder victim was at fault for starting a fist fight as they were cutting off his fingers and hands, head and more. Trump/Saudi Arabia can't have fist fights from their torture/murder victims. Thus, the lame excuse, as all Trump's excuses are lame, is that Saudi Arabia had no choice but kill the journalist struggling for his life and wholeness of his body. His dismembered body parts have not yet been found.
October 17: Trump announced that he is too busy to visit US troops. Most of his day is spent lying, tweeting, running bigot rallies, watching TV, interviewing on his TV station Fox News, counting his illegal profiteering, encouraging and aiding enemies of the US attack the US, breaking government, degrading women and African Americans, going for rides on Air Force One and Marine One, making sure his tie reaches his knees, dieing/combing his hair and adding orange makeup to his face. Trump is too busy being a jerk, racist, sexist and anti-American.
Trump is thrilled at the prospect at being recorded in history as America's first, best and biggest dictator. Trump is the biggest enemy the US has ever had.
October 17: Trump's gibberish for the day. "I mean, you have scientists on both sides of it. My uncle was a great professor at [Massachusetts Institute of Technology] for many years, Dr. John Trump. And I didn't talk to him about this particular subject, but I have a natural instinct for science, and I will say that you have scientists on both sides of the picture."
This is Trump pretending to talk about climate change. 999 scientists on one side vs 1 on the other side. Trump's claims to be this 1. Trump has denied climate change and claimed it was “created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing noncompetitive.”
Under Trump, the US now represents the leading perpetrator of racism, murder of African Americans, stealing children, sexual assault, lying, preference for cruel dictatorships, election fraud, voter suppression of non-whites and students, attacking journalists, bullying, global insecurity and mafia-like sales of 'protection'.
October 16: Trump's favorite target for degradation: women. He calls them pigs, fat, ugly, pieces of ass, gold diggers and more. Today, he called one of sex partners, Stormy Daniels, "horseface." This is from the highest office in the US from the White House.
Daniels responded. "Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present your president. In addition to his...umm...shortcomings, he has demonstrated his incompetence, hatred of women and lack of self control on Twitter AGAIN! And perhaps a penchant for bestiality. Game on, Tiny."
October 16: There are 3 countries/dictatorships at war with the US whose leaders are mass murderers of their own citizens: Russia, Saudi Arabia and North Korea. Trump says he loves them. Russia extensively interferes with US elections, businesses and government agencies. Trump defends Russia. Saudi Arabia produced and funded the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, and recently murdered and dismembered an American resident who has 3 children who are US citizens. Trump defends Saudi Arabia. North Korea has developed an arsenal of nuclear weapons to use against the US. Trump defends North Korea.
In contrast, Trump attacks Europe (particularly England, France and Germany), NATO, Mexico and Canada as well as non-whites, the disabled and the poor in the US.
Update: To fund Trump's assistance in Saudi Arabia's cover up of murder and cutting into pieces an American resident, they sent $100 million to the US today.
We know that Trump has profited hundreds of millions of dollars from Saudi Arabia. We know that Saudi Arabia just transferred $200 million to the US to assist Trump. We also know that Trump hates journalists for the Washington Post. We know that the American resident killed by the Saudi government was a journalist for the Washington Post. We know that this American/Saudi journalist was drugged, his fingers cut off, was murdered and dismembered by the Saudi government. We know that Trump is assisting Saudi Arabia for crafting a bogus cover up of its crime of torture and murder of an American resident. It appears that Trump's hate for Washington Post journalists induced Saudi Arabia to murder this journalist in collusion with Trump. Trump, supporter of Putin's and Kim Jong Un's murder of journalists, is also informing the world that the US supports the torture and murder of journalists. (Trump regularly encourages violence against journalists in the US)
October 14: On 60 Minutes Trump bragged at stirring his rally hoodlums to ridicule a women sexually assaulted with attempted rape by Brett Kavanaugh and all women so assaulted. Trump claimed that his mockery of women sexually assaulted is what got Kavanaugh approved by the Senate for the Supreme Court.
October 12: Trump claimed that Robert E. Lee, the Civil War general in charge of ripping the US apart to protect slavery and who killed hundreds of thousands of Americans, was great. Trump claimed that Abraham Lincoln was afraid of Lee. Trump despises African Americans along with women.
Robert Lee IV, who is a descendant of the Confederate commander, said Trump's remarks show "he supports an idol of white supremacy and of hatred.” “Robert E. Lee fought for the continued enslavement of black bodies. It was for state’s rights, yes, but it was for state’s rights to own slaves," he said.
October 7: Trump is breaking America with racism, dismissal of sexual assault and degradation of the FBI, US national security and global alliances. His fake Republicans have broken Congress and with Trump are breaking the judiciary. It's all just some corrupt real estate scheme to Trump, animated with his incompetence and cartoon tweets and rallies. Government agencies and law enforcement officers are opponents now as they always have been for Trump, and he is determined to make America one big con game.
Trump scared when victims speak
October 6: The Senate confirmed Trump's fellow perpetrator of serial sexual assault to the Supreme Court. Kavenaugh displayed his preference for lies and attacks against the US during his 30+ hours of hearing, repeatedly perjuring himself and degrading the judicial branch of government and women victimized by sexual assault. One more Trump break in the United States. Shame on Trump's fake Republicans.
Fake Republicans have proudly announced on TV that they would not believe their own daugter if she confided with him that she was sexually assaulted. Trump and his fake Republicans consider women sub-human and only objects of their sexual desires.
Watching the Senate voting was like watching a tragic funeral. Everyone knew that a sin had been committed.
October 4: When the FBI produces facts, Trump hates it. When the FBI produces lies or misleading reports, Trump loves it. FBI's Kavenaugh report was manipulated by Trump to then get the result he ordered. Neither Kavenaugh nor the leading witness were interviewed by the FBI, nor were dozens of corroborating witnesses to Kavanaugh's sexual assault, black outs, meanness toward women or lies. The FBI and the Supreme Court have not been infected with the disease called Trump.
Once again, Trump has degraded the FBI, enlisting the FBI to support his war on women on behalf of perpetrators of sexual assault and rape and to degrade their credibility on their investigations of him.
October 2: Trump severely attacked the victim of Brett Kavanaugh's attempted rape. Trump wants girls to be afraid and boys to be encouraged, telling boys to assault girls with no witnesses and thereby easy to exonerate. Trump's crowd cheered against the girls and for the boys. Trump, Kavanaugh and the like want to impregnate women at will, sometimes against their will, and then prevent abortion of the children they produce. Women have no rights or value to them.
The attorney for Kavanaugh's victim responded, "A vicious, vile and soulless attack on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. Is it any wonder that she was terrified to come forward, and that other sexual assault survivors are as well? She is a remarkable profile in courage. He is a profile in cowardice."
October 2: Trump is the biggest fraud in US history. Nothing but lies and scams about wealth, sex and talent. Trump claimed that his father got him started with $1 million. Facts show otherwise. Using massive tax and bank fraud, fake companies and money laundering, Trump got from his father nearly $450 million.
Trump got this money by engineering massive income tax evasion, over $500 million that should have been paid to taxpayers but instead paid to Trump.
Trump also stole billions of dollars from investors in his bogus businesses.
October 2: Trump wants non-whites and gays out of the US. Today, he banned partners of gay diplomats from entering the US.
October 2: Trump despises women except during adultery, during which has had innumerable sex partners. Yesterday, Trump against attacked women, and again in the media. Before one reporter could speak her question, Trump derided her, "She's shocked that I picked her," said Trump as a flock of staffers behind him — mostly men — smiled or laughed. "She's, like, in a state of shock." "I'm not," Vega said, rising from her seat. "Thank you, Mr. President." Trump, apparently mishearing "thank you" as "thinking," responded with an unprovoked jab: "I know you're not thinking. You never do." He later circled back to Vega in a press conference that also found Trump deriding other female reporters.
September 30: About Kim Jong Un Trump said, "We fell in love. No really. He wrote me beautiful letters. They were great letters. And then we fell in love."
Trump was so successful with the Access Hollywood video where he bragged of his serial sexual assault that he followed up by endorsing sexual deviants for high positions in order to corrupt the US government, partly because this would please his benefactor Vladimir Putin. For example, Trump endorsed Roy Moore, a serial pedophile. His latest example, Brett Kavanaugh, a serial sexual assaulter in the 1980s. One of Kavanaugh's pastimes was attending sex trains where a teenage girl was drugged and a line of teenage boys stood in their sex line. So rampant this practice, the headmaster of his high school and those of 6 other nearby schools distributed warnings to parents in 1990. "It would be hard to devise a better recipe for disaster than a social scene that includes the anonymity provided by an 'open party,' no adult supervision, considerable amounts of alcohol, and teenage hormones which encourage sexual or violent behavior."
September 28: Trump's new policies on college sexual misconduct could drastically change how administrators handle sexual assault on campus. Under a draft version of the proposed rules, colleges and universities would be held responsible for far fewer incidents, legally exempt from investigating, for example, any assaults not reported to the school official designated to deal with these cases, and any that take place outside of school grounds. The alleged victim could also have to prove his or her case by the “clear and convincing” standard of evidence, as opposed to the lower “preponderance of the evidence” standard required by the Obama administration.
For Trump, a woman's report of sexual assault is irrelevant. She is lying. The perpetrator is always innocent.
Trump has convinced Republicans to spend trillions of dollars and energize bank fraud. Passing debt onto taxpayers is his lifelong trick.
September 28: A psychiatrist says that special counsel Robert Mueller “unconsciously represents” President Trump’s father in the commander in chief’s mind. One of “the most interesting” things Dr. Justin A. Frank says he found out while working on his new book, “Trump on the Couch: Inside the Mind of the President,” was that as a teenager, a young Trump was sent away from his home in Queens “by his father for being delinquent — for lying to his father, for sneaking into Manhattan and for buying switchblade knives.” “One of his main defenses is projection, which is like the pot calling the kettle black,” says Frank, a former clinical professor of psychiatry at George Washington University Medical Center. “[Trump] accuses other people of doing whatever he’s doing. So one of the best ways to understand Trump is to see who he accuses and who he accuses of what, and unconsciously, he’s talking about himself.” (Judy Kurtz)
September 28: Trump has made sure the world, allies and foes alike, see the damage he is causing to the US and its citizens. Yesterday's Senate hearing to review attempted rape and homicide of a 15 year old girl, to degrade testimony from the victim and to show an incompetent nominee for the US Supreme Court cry throughout his testimony of purported denial was a travesty for all time, a greeenlight to future sexual assaulters and degradation of the US government. Putin is proud of his role and his Trump vehicle.
The bosses of congress, yesterday on display in the Senate, are breaking America by degrading women and corrupting government.
September 26: Trump announced that the MeToo movement "is very dangerous."
September 26: Bolivian president Evo Morales took aim at President Trump during a meeting of the U.N. Security Council. "I would like to say to you, frankly and openly here, that in no way is the United States interested in upholding democracy Tthe U.S. under his administration could not care less about human rights or justice. If this were the case, it would have signed the international conventions and treaties that have protected human rights. It would not have threatened the investigation mechanism of the International Criminal Court, nor would it promote the use of torture, nor would it have walked away from the Human Rights Council. And nor would it have separated migrant children from their families, nor put them in cages."
Sepember 25: Trump went to the UN to present the US as the world's biggest bully, enrichening itself by taxing and threatening other countries. Trump boasted how violent the US can be and how he is making the US an even worse threat. Virtually, everything he said against Iran is exactly what Trump is doing to the world with an increasingly heavily armed military, causing the death of hundreds of thousands of civilian Muslims, causing mass migrations from Syria and other countries, threatening allies and adversaries alike, and plundering the riches of the world. Trump attacked OPEC. Trump demanded that the price of oil be reduced. Trump demanded payment from any country expecting his protection. Trump lectured the world, claiming their inferiority to the menace he projected for the US. NOTHING was said by Trump about or against Russia, his patron.
Trump began his speech, "In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than any administration in the history of our country," Trump said, opening his address to the U.N. General Assembly. Audience members then began chuckling and the laughs grew louder when Trump said "so true."
Trump also went to the UN to show the world his attack of the criminal sexual assault victims of Brett Kavanaugh and to attack the US for permitting sexual assault victims to speak out. Trump claimed that Kavanaugh's victims were drunk, and therefore deserved what happened. Trump and his fake Republicans in the Senate have organized a prosecution of these victims in 2 days at a Senate hearing, having hired a sex crimes prosecutor to destroy Kavanaugh's victims. However, their plan may backfire as did Bill Cosby's attempt to shame his victims for his crimes, similar to Kavanaugh's, but failed, instead led out of the courtroom in handcuffs to go to prison for 3-10 years.
September 25: Elect more women. Appoint more women. Perhaps then, we would hear less often what Brett Kavanaugh, Republican nominee for the US Supreme Court, announced around the world on Fox News. "I did not have sexual intercourse or anything close to sexual intercourse in high school or for many years thereafter. And the girls from the schools I went to and I were friends," said Kavanaugh, sitting alongside his wife. "So you're saying through all these years that you were in question you were a virgin?" asked Martha MacCallum. The judge responded, "That's correct.""Never had sexual intercourse with anyone in high school?" the Fox News host follows up. "That's correct," Kavanaugh responds. "And through what years in college, since we're probing through your personal life here?" she asked. "Many years, many years after," he responds. "I'll leave it at that, many years after."
Kavanaugh, Trump and fake Republicans vehemently oppose any investigation of Kavanaugh, particularly by the FBI. They fear prosecution for any lying to the FBI as they do so readily on TV.
September 24: So many indictments and guilty pleas of Trump associates, testimony by them against Trump and so close to indictment of Trump himself and family members for crimes against the US and treason, Trump FIRED Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Update: Trump's plan failed. He scheduled a meeting with Rosenstein for Thursday in the White House, concurrent with Senate sexual assault hearing for Kavenaugh. Wonder what was in that briefcase Rosenstein brought to the White House today for his meeting with Chief of Staff John Kelly, who even walked Rosenstein to his car at the end of the meeting.
September 24: "How Russia Helped Swing the Election for Trump. A meticulous analysis of online activity during the 2016 campaign makes a powerful case that targeted cyberattacks by hackers and trolls were decisive. Ordinarily, Congress would aggressively examine an electoral controversy of this magnitude, but the official investigations in the House and the Senate, led by Republicans, have been too stymied by partisanship to address the ultimate question of whether Trump’s victory was legitimate. “Cyberwar: How Russian Hackers and Trolls Helped Elect a President—What We Don’t, Can’t, and Do Know,” by Kathleen Hall Jamieson, a professor of communications at the University of Pennsylvania, dares to ask—and even attempts to answer—whether Russian meddling had a decisive impact in 2016. Jamieson offers a forensic analysis of the available evidence and concludes that Russia very likely delivered Trump’s victory. Jamieson is seventy-one, and has spent forty years studying political speeches, ads, and debates. Since 1993, she has directed the Annenberg Public Policy Center, at Penn, and in 2003 she co-founded FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan watchdog group. Russian saboteurs nimbly amplified Trump’s divisive rhetoric on immigrants, minorities, and Muslims, among other signature topics, and targeted constituencies that he needed to reach." (Jane Mayer, New Yorker)
September 21: While few do, Trump attacked women as liars who do not quickly report sexual assault, attempted rape and rape.
Trump's fellow sexual assaulters in congress say that sexual assault is a joke. No matter what evidence there is, the senate will approve Kavenaugh, illegitimate as a nominees because Trump was elected illegitimately.
September 20: Trump directed Spain to build a 3,000 mile wall across Africa, the Sahara Desert, and bisecting 12 countries, none of which border with Spain. None of Africa borders with Spain. Trump's fictional wall with Mexico is 2,000 miles long.
SEPTEMBER 20: WE NEED MASS PROTESTS AND MASSIVE VOTING AGAINST TRUMP AND WHAT HE AND HIS FAKE REPUBLICANS ENCOURAGES. SEXUAL ASSAULT. CRIMES. RACISM. VEHEMENCE AGAINST FBI AND US NATIONAL SECURITY. SPITTING ON AMERICAN VALUES AND IDEALS. TREASON.
September 20: Trump is orchestrating a multi-million-dollar attack machine and the power of 2 branches of the federal government against the victim of attempted rape perpetrated by Brett Kavanaugh. Trump knows that Kavanaugh is guilty and ordered the FBI to stay away. Trump will defame and trivialize and destroy in any way possible anyone accusing him or his illicit progeny of sexual assault,one of Trump's favorite power crimes. Kavanaugh's victim is now in hiding from a deluge of death threats encouraged by Trump and his Senators. However, unlike Kavanaugh, his victim asks the FBI to investigate the attempeed rape and asks for corroborating witnesses (eg, Kavanough's drunkard classmate who also jumped on the victim). Neither Trump nor Kavanaugh was involvement of the FBI or witnesses to testify. Liars and criminals don't want the FBI involved. By the way, the more truth being told by the victim the more Kavanaugh is committing perjury.
Trump is fighting any presentation of evidence of sexual assault against Kavanaugh or himself. Kavanaugh's victim is being afforded far less than Anita Hill was in 1991. Hill was granted an FBI investigation and receipt of evidence in her support. A direct witness of Kavanaugh's attempted rape is specifically exluded from testifying. Blame the victim is still the go-to defense, especially by corrupt politicians with the power and taxpayer funds enabled by their office.
We are about to have a second Supreme Court Justice who sexually assaulted, as we have such a president. Shameful.
Trump supporters, including Senators, say 'what's the big deal, all men sexually assault, rape and gang rape women'.
September 20: Stormy Daniels has a book on the way. It includes detailed description of Trump's penis. If her story of sexual affair with Trump is false, it would be easy to prove now. But, of course, it isn't.
September 20: Trump went to North Carolina to ostensibly visit the devastation from Hurricane Florence. He turned it into an advertisement for his golf course there, and to sell his ridiculous border wall.
Psychological projection is a theory in psychology in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or 'qualities' by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others, eg victim blaming, bullying, guilt. For example, a person who is habitually rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude. It incorporates blame shifting. Trump shifts to others his lies, fraud, failures, weakness, corruption and treason.
September 17: Breaking Trump news. About Hurricane Florence, Trump said, "This is a tough hurricane, one of the wettest we’ve ever seen, from the standpoint of water." Water is wet and this is the wettest. A couple weeks ago, Trump said Hurricane Maria over Puerto Rico had wet water too. Someone, please give this guy another diaper.
September 17: Odds and ends. Another Trump chapter of obstruction of justice and degradation of national security, FBI, DOJ and judges. To attack investigation of his treason and help Russia murder US human assets in Russia, Trump ordered the release of the names of these assets, which will also inform Russia about methods national security agents use in Russia. Trump still will not direct protection of the US against Russian attacks against US national security. Separately, Trump ordered the FBI not to investigate the attempted rape report against Brett Kavanough. Trump has caused the number of children in federal custody to increase from 2,400 in May 2017 to 12,800 this month. Trump cannot find 1,500 children among the 11,254 migrant children he has placed with sponsors this year.
Thousands of FBI agents responded to Trump via the FBI Agents Association, "Attacks on our character and demeaning comments about the FBI will not deter Agents from continuing to do what we have always done—dedicate our lives to protecting the American people."
September 16: In addition to helping Trump avoid prosecution for his crimes, Trump found another aspect of Brett Kavanaugh, Trump's Supreme Court nominee, in common with Trump....sexual assault. While drunk in high school, Kavanaugh attempted to rape a high school girl, then 15 years old. Several women have testified that Trump sexually assaulted them. Trump bragged about serial sexual assault and his dream to sexually assault his daughter on recorded tape.
Kavanaugh's victim took a lie detector test administered by a former FBI agent in August, which determined she was telling the truth when she said her account of that night was accurate. "I thought he might inadvertently kill me. He was trying to attack me and remove my clothing." The victim and her husband disclosed the incident in 2012 to their couples therapist. She reported that she was attacked by students “from an elitist boys’ school” who went on to become “highly respected and high-ranking members of society in Washington.” Notes from an individual therapy session the following year, when she was being treated for what she says have been long-term effects of the incident, show Ford described a “rape attempt” in her late teens. (The victim is a Ph.D. research psychologist and professor at Palo Alto University who teaches at Stanford University, training graduate students in clinical psychology. Her work has been widely published in academic journals.)
The other man in the room, Mark Judge, published a book describing the excessive drinking he and his classmates (eg, Kavanaugh) did during high school, the time period of the attempted rape. Judge described alcohol blackouts. Judge's books include 'Wasted: Tales of a Genx Drunk' and 'A Tremor of Bliss: Sex, Catholicism, and Rock 'n' Roll'. Both Judge and his friend Kavanaugh drank heavily and say they cannot remember the attempted rape incident by Kavanaugh described above. Of course, suffering from severe drunkenness or blackout, they cannot say with certainty it did not happen. In his high school year book, Judge wrote, "Certain women should be struck regularly, like gongs." In 2015, Judge wrote, "And if that man is any kind of man, he'll allow himself to feel the awesome power, the wonderful beauty, of uncontrollable male passion." In 2015, Kavanaugh said, "What happens at Georgetown Prep stays at Georgetown Prep. That's been a good thing for all of us."
But, to Trumpers, attempted rape is no big deal. Trump dismissed the victim's report; he always dismisses victims of sexual abuse.
September 15: "Pardon us, but was it only three weeks ago that President Trump expressed “such respect” for Paul Manafort, his former campaign chairman and freshly minted felon, who had refused to cooperate with the special counsel’s office and took his federal bank- and tax-fraud conviction like a “brave man”? Unlike the weak Mr. Cohen, Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter, Mr. Manafort “refused to ‘break’ — make up stories in order to get a ‘deal.’” So much for that. Mr. Trump’s expectation that there is any honor among thieves has been confounded once again. On Friday, Mr. Manafort broke in a big way — agreeing to cooperate “fully, truthfully, completely, and forthrightly” regarding “any and all matters” the special counsel, Robert Mueller, wants him to. For now, Mr. Manafort can take comfort in the knowledge that he joins an ever-growing crowd of top Trump associates who have pleaded guilty to federal offenses: Michael Flynn, the president’s former national security adviser; George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign; Rick Gates, Mr. Manafort’s business partner and deputy campaign chairman; and Mr. Cohen, whose case is being handled by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. All have agreed to cooperate with authorities, except Mr. Cohen — and even that may be changing. How many more guilty pleas and convictions will there be in Trumpworld before all this crime starts to look — how can we put it — organized?" (New York Times Editorial Board)
Trump is at the top a an international criminal empire of money laundering, bank and tax fraud, obstruction of justice, bilking politicians of money and endorsement, and conspiracy against the US. Possibly the largest and most diverse crime family ever.
September 14: Trump's criminal campaign director, Paul Manafort, formally admitted in a federal court that he committed an array of crimes against the US 2006-2016: $30 million money laundering,$15 million tax, illegal foreign agent, obstruction of justice, witness tampering (thus, there was no need for the trial scheduled next week in DC). A few weeks ago, Manafort was convicted on an array of other serious crimes. Trump says Manafort is a "good man."
Manafort agreed to testify, "fully and truthfully" according to the federal judge presiding over Manafort,, to Robert Mueller all he knows about crimes of others in Trump's campaign and White House.
As summary, to date: Trump's campaign manager, deputy campaign manager, White House national security advisor, personal attorney and top campaign surrogate and a campaign advisor all have pleaded guilty to serious crimes and are cooperating with Robert Mueller. Trump's swamp is a criminal swamp. Notably, the lawyers for all these criminals claimed that their client was innocent of all charges and that the prosecutors were criminals (thus, be cautious about believing defense lawyers, especially for criminals conspiring against the US)
Without the abused benefits of the presidency, Trump would be on his way to jail already.
September 13: In 1974, as follow up to their heralded and indelible investigation published in The Washington Post, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein published "All the President's Men", about the downfall of Richard Nixon. It later became a movie. Fast forward to this week. Woodward published an even more penetrating investigation into 'Trump, FEAR, Trump in the White House'. It is essentially part one of Trump's place in a dark stain in America. Woodward's new book sold more than 750,000 copies through its first day of release, the most for any title in Simon & Schuster history, according to the 94-year-old publisher. "Based on immense pre-publication and ongoing interest, the reading public clearly has an enormous appetite for what we believe, as Woodward says, is 'a pivot point in history,'" said Simon & Schuster President Jonathan Karp. Later parts in Trump's pathological anti-America saga will cover money laundering, bank and tax fraud, violations of the US Constitution, war against non-whites, collusion with foreign dictators, devastating US government institutions, conspiracy against the US with congressional/corporate/judicial/lobbyist joint conspirators and treason.
September 13: Trump's big lie today. The 3,000 killed by Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico last year is a hoax. The bodies buried were actors. This is the same kind of claim Trump supporter Alex Jones said about the massacre in Sandy Hook. And, surrounded by opulence and power, Trump said he is the biggest victim of Hurricane Maria.
September 11: Trump boasted that his handling of a hurricane recovery in Puerto Rico was "an incredible unsung success. 3,000 US citizens, ie Americans, were killed. He through rolls of paper towells to a handful of survivors.
September 11: It's officially out, Bob Woodward's book, 'FEAR, Trump in the White House'. Indeed we should, particularly as the book noted that on March 31, 2016, "Real power is – I don't even want to use the word – fear." This is Trump's management style. It has served him well against competitors, banks, litigants, his victims of sexual assault/adultery/racism/defamation and the media for over 50 years. However, the book chronicles Trump's campaign and White House staff, basically split into 2 camps: sycophants (eg, Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, who enable his worst and professionals who created the means to combat his worst (eg, Gary Cohn, Don McGahn, John Dowd, Jim Mattis, H. R. McMaster, Rob Porter, and dozens of other un-named 'protectors' who call Trunp an idiot). Fear pervades the White House and the societal impact of Trump. Woodward paints a documented and detailed portrait – painted by Trump's closest advisors – of Trump's dangers, illicit schemes, chaos, incompetence and public policy of lies. The word 'fuck' seems to be the most common word around and by Trump. Trump even calls Obama "a weak dick." Particularly fascinating is how Trump's treason defense lawyers view Trump as "disabled," dillusional and "a fucking liar." And, told Robert Mueller so, hoping that Mueller in turn would not indict Trump for his crimes and treason.
"What a baby. Woodward’s recounting of Trump’s conversations is a study in character, or lack of it. The president’s vanity, pettiness and meanness of spirit were evident already in his tweets and public statements. But here is the annotated version, as told to Woodward by Trump’s aides, replete with enough F-bombs to stock an arsenal of profanity. Woodward’s narrative of the weakness phobia begins at the low point of the campaign, with the revelation of the “Access Hollywood” tape in which Trump boasts about grabbing women’s genitals. His aides have written a statement in which Trump would concede, “My language was inappropriate, not acceptable for a president.” But Trump protests: “I can’t do this. This is bull----. This is weak. You guys are weak.” Trump often expresses a peculiar concern about looking like a baby. He blasts campaign chairman Paul Manafort after a critical New York Times story, saying, “Paul, am I a baby? Is that what you’re saying, I’m a baby?” And what about Trump’s ruinous legal problems with special counsel Robert S. Mueller III? They’re the fault of Trump’s chicken-hearted lawyers, of course. Woodward quotes the tough-guy-in-chief. “I don’t have any good lawyers. . . . I’ve got a bunch of lawyers who are not aggressive, who are weak, who don’t have my best interests in mind, who aren’t loyal. It’s just a disaster.”" (David Ignatius) Trump IS weak and cries out, pouts, finger points and holds grudges (especially against women, African Americans and Hispanics).
September 11: "Trump is harming the dream of America more than any foreign adversary ever could. Trump’s Republican Party will create more debt in one year than was generated in the first 200 years of America’s existence. Sixteen years of strategic missteps have been followed by the maniacal moves of a man who has savaged America’s vital alliances, provided comfort to hostile foreign powers, attacked our intelligence and military communities, and lent a sympathetic ear to neo-Nazis and white supremacists across the globe. the gravest threat Trump poses to our national security is the damage done daily to America’s image. As the New York Times’s Roger Cohen wrote the month after Trump’s election, “America is an idea. Strip freedom, human rights, democracy and the rule of law from what the United States represents to the world and America itself is gutted.” Osama bin Laden was killed by SEAL Team 6 before he accomplished that goal. Other tyrants who tried to do the same were consigned to the ash heap of history. The question for voters this fall is whether their country will move beyond this troubled chapter in history or whether they will continue supporting a politician who has done more damage to the dream of America than any foreign adversary ever could." (Joe Scarborough, ex-Republican)
To dishonor the 3,000 victims and mass destruction of symbols of the US on 9/11/2001, Trump attacked the FBI and DOJ. Trump's hate is focused on Robert Mueller, who led the FBI's pursuit (as Bush's FBI Direcctor) of Osama bin Laden. And, Trump is steering the US into national security, world leadership, economic and moral decline by elevating the prominence of Russia, North Korea, Russia, Iran, racists, political/corporate fraud and cyberattacks against the US. To Trump America is simply a toy and a mechanism to defraud Americans and the world.
Trump has already had a devastating impact on young people. Non-white families can be expected to be torn apart, including kidnapping and abuse of their young children and babies. Lies, racism, bullying, making fun of the disabled, white supremacy, cheating, obscenity, adultery, immorality, and sexual assault are now official policies of the US government. American values and ideals are to be distrusted and replaced by tyrannical forces. Federal law enforcement and courts are to be scapegoated. Future personal and national indebtedness is exploding. The leading international trade agreements are shifting to exclude the US. Historical allies have been reduced and replaced by allegiance to dictatorships. The health care system is breaking. Care for the environment and endangered species is being destroyed. Truth is outweighed by lies. Torture is back. Greed is good. Respect for Americans and America is in decline. The shining city on the hill has been replaced by dystopia and a banana republic.
Since Congress and increasingly the judiciary are conspiring with Trump, the only remedy comes from American citizens. Vote.
September 9: Enthusiasm of Trump's surrogates on TV is fake. They signed contracts promising never to criticize Trump or be sued by Trump. Enthusiasm at Trump's rallies is also fake. If an attendee does not show enthusiasm, Trump orders the Secret Service, illegally, to remove and threaten the attendee. Attendees are told, ""You have to be enthusiastic, you have to be clapping, you have to be cheering for Donald Trump."
September 8: During October 2016, Trump entered into a contract with porn star Stormy Daniels to silence revelation of their sex affair. Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, testified under oath that they did so to sway the election, an illegal campaign enterprise. During 2017, Trump (and Cohen) sued Daniels to enforce the contract. Daniels counter sued and demanded depositions under oath of Trump (and Cohen). Terrified of ever testifying under oath, knowing he will lie, Trump TODAY claimed, after nearly 2 years insisting the contract with Daniels was valid and enforceable, that the contract was NEVER valid. Telling the truth is scary and impossible for Trump.
September 7: Trump has taken from Republicans the Party of law and order and transferred it to Democrats. Trump demonizes daily FBI agents and the Dept of Justice. Trump wants no one to believe FBI agents and to see them as criminals. Imagine the impact on juries of Trump's demonization. Let's say your child was kidnapped, killed by terrorists or raped AND FBI agent(s) were brought in to find the perpetrator and into the trial to help send the perpetrator to prison. Do you want these FBI agents to be disbelieved as Trump is masterminding? Do you want the jury to see these FBI agents as criminals?
Trump has also taken from Republicans the Party of reducing the deficit. Under Trump, the national debt has exploded, burdening Americans for decades. And, like Trump, 'Republicans' see Russia and North Korea as allies and Europe, Canada and Mexico as foes. Republicans are no longer conservative.
Trump has also made sure that Republicans are linked with racists, the KKK and neo-Nazis, corrupt politicians and corporations, environmental destruction, child abuse and kidnapping, religious intolerance, destroying relationships with allies, national INsecurity, abusing the instruments of government against critics/political foes/corporations/the press, against trade, chaos and Russia.
Trump said this review of America's progress, rule of law, civility, citizenship, leadership and remaining challenges put him to sleep
Embrace of the US Constitution makes America great. Trump hates it.
September 6: The total expense of Trump's golf outings (so far), including Secret Service protection, comes out to an estimated $77 million. Golf cart rentals in the U.S. have cost taxpayers $300,675. All free advertising for Trump for golf businesses but at great taxpayer expense.
Watching the Senate hearing for Trump's pick for Supreme Court justice, Brett Kavanough, it is clear that if men gave birth that there would be no movement to criminalize abortion. It would be elevated to endorsement by a new amendment to the US Constitution. (Trump chose Kavanaugh to abolish abortion and to exonerate Trump from his crimes and treason.)
September 6: Trump says news has always been fake news, claiming that fake news said that Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was a terrible speech. The only real news according to Trump is his lies. According to Trump, almost everything we know about the world, our city, our schools, our businesses, our sports, our weather, and most everything else is wrong because it is based on fake news.
Trump does not believe he is constrained by morals, the truth, the Constitution, his oath of office, congress or the rule of law. Apparently, the only constraint is the 'resistance' coup inside the White House and by Trump appointees to change or disregard Trump's orders. Eg, the Dept. of Defense has often disregarded Trump's orders (eg, assassinating foreign leaders, starting nuclear war, banning gays from military service, abandoning NATO).
September 6: Vladimir Putin is elated. Five days ago, Senator John McCain's memorial at the national church rebuked Trump's degradation of the US. Two days ago, the first excerpts of Bob Woodwards book about Trump, FEAR, were released, chronicling White House insiders' commentary about Trump's degradation. Yesterday, a top Trump official published an op-ed revealing a shadow government in the White House fighting Trump's degradation. Under Trump, the US is falling apart, and his supporters applaud and collaborate. Putin is winning big, and Trump supporters applaud and assist.
Who is in charge in the White House. Trump will not answer this question.
September 5: ALARM FROM WHITE HOUSE "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration. I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations. I would know. I am one of them. We believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic. That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office. The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic. From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief’s comments and actions. Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims. Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back. The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility. There is a quiet resistance within the administration of people choosing to put country first. But the real difference will be made by everyday citizens rising above politics, reaching across the aisle and resolving to shed the labels in favor of a single one: Americans."
Three Republican Senators, Sasse/Flake/Corker, agree. Months ago, Corker called the White House a day care center.
Two White House officials contacted a Yale psychiatrist regarding Trump's behaviors that scared them, Trump was "unraveling."
Consider the message to the rest of the world. Trump appointees, the writer of this op-ed and those audio-taped for Bob Woodwards book, know that Trump is unfit.
Update: Trump claimed the author of this warning guilty of treason and ordered the New York Times to turn over the author's name for reasons of national security so that Trump can arrest, torture and kill him/her. Trump is exploding, "volcanic" in the word of a White House insider. Worse things are coming.
Speculate who the author is, why not? Kellyanne Conway? John Kelly? Jeff Sessions?
September 5: Trump announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller and FBI Director James Comey are homosexuals, claiming he has 100 pictures of them hugging and kissing each other. Maybe he will publish the photos in The National Enquirer.
September 5: Crybaby said he wants libel laws so that he can sue Bob Woodward for his book FEAR, which largely consists of tape-recorded commentary from Trump's top officials. Bring it on buttercup. Should you sue Woodward, Woodward would gain access (via litigation discovery) to far more information about you. And, all those that Trump degrades as mentally retarded, non-white etc would gain a mechanism to sue Trump.
September 4: Today, the Senate started its hearing for a second illegitimate Supreme Course justice, Brett Kavanaugh. If he had integrity, he would not accept Trump's intention for him: to permit Trump to degrade DOJ/FBI, break the US, institute white supremacy, legalize sexual assault, harm the environment, weaken health care, kidnap children, violate the rights of US citizens, trash the US Constitution, commit crimes and treason, obstruct justice, violate his oath of office and exonerate him against litigation and criminal prosecution. If approved by the Senate nearly a quarter of the US Supreme Court will be illegitimate.
September 4: Just a taste. Bob Woodward’s new book, FEAR: Trump in the White House, reveals a ‘nervous breakdown’ of Trump’s presidency. White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly frequently lost his temper and told colleagues that he thought the president was “unhinged,” Woodward writes. In one small group meeting, Kelly said of Trump: “He’s an idiot. It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in Crazytown. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.” After Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad launched a chemical attack on civilians in April 2017, Trump called Mattis and said he wanted to assassinate the dictator. “Let’s fucking kill him! Let’s go in. Let’s kill the fucking lot of them,” Trump said. Mattis told the president that he would get right on it. But after hanging up the phone, he told a senior aide: “We’re not going to do any of that.” White House Chief Economic Advisor Gary Cohn came to regard the president as “a professional liar” and threatened to resign in August 2017 over Trump’s handling of a deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. Cohn, who is Jewish, was especially shaken when one of his daughters found a swastika on her college dorm room. Trump was sharply criticized for initially saying that “both sides” were to blame. At the urging of advisers, he then condemned white supremacists and neo-Nazis, but almost immediately told aides, “That was the biggest fucking mistake I’ve made” and the “worst speech I’ve ever given.” When Cohn met with Trump to deliver his resignation letter after Charlottesville, the president told him, “This is treason,” and persuaded his economic adviser to stay on. Kelly then confided to Cohn that he shared Cohn’s horror at Trump’s handling of the tragedy — and shared Cohn’s fury with Trump. “I would have taken that resignation letter and shoved it up his ass six different times,” Kelly told Cohn. On March 5, Dowd and Trump attorney Jay Sekulow met in Mueller’s office with the special counsel and his deputy, James Quarles, where Dowd and Sekulow reenacted Trump’s January practice session. Dowd then explained to Mueller and Quarles why he was trying to keep the president from testifying: “I’m not going to sit there and let him look like an idiot. And you publish that transcript, because everything leaks in Washington, and the guys overseas are going to say, ‘I told you he was an idiot. I told you he was a goddamn dumbbell. What are we dealing with this idiot for?’” “John, I understand,” Mueller replied. Later that month, Dowd told Trump: “Don’t testify. It’s either that or an orange jumpsuit.” But Trump, concerned about the optics of a president refusing to testify and convinced that he could handle Mueller’s questions, had by then decided otherwise. “I’ll be a real good witness,” Trump told Dowd, according to Woodward. “You are not a good witness,” Dowd replied. “Mr. President, I’m afraid I just can’t help you.” The next morning, Dowd resigned.
Trump's closest advisors (eg, Chief of Staff, Defense Secretary) call him a liar, a dope, a moron, an idiot, not to be trusted and sure to go to prison if he answers questions of Robert Mueller. He acts like a fifth or sixth grader!
Trump's lawyers informed Robert Mueller that Trump is a liar and will commit perjury during testimony about his crimes, treason and obstruction of justice!
Trump's lawyers informed Trump that he would be wearing an orange jump suit in prison should he testify before Robert Mueller!
September 4: Trump called for the end of NBC. Previously he called for the end of CNN, The New York Times and The Washington Post.
September 4: Jerry Springer, host of the most vile TV show, said about Trump, "He took my show and brought it to the White House."
September 4: About Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Trump said, "This guy is mentally retarded. He’s this dumb Southerner."
There are 2 critical oaths of office. 1. To preserve, protect and defend the US. 2. To faithfully execute the laws of the US. Trump violates both. And, he is ordering others to do so as well.
September 3: Trump is certain that the FBI/DOJ have found an array of his serious crimes, so all he can do is attack FBI/DOJ...the primary theme of his rallies, tweets and media interviews. Today, Trump announced that he will do everything he can to prevent release of Robert Mueller's report about Russian interference in the 2016 election on behalf of Trump, Trump's treason and an array of other serious crimes committed by Trump and his family against the US.
September 3: To celebrate Labor Day, Trump attacked labor unions and boasted about his efforts to send jobs outside the US and prevent wages from increasing.
Trump also attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions, again. This time, for DOJ's prosecution of corrupt Republican members of congress. Trump has ordered that only Democrats be prosecuted and that Hillary Clinton be jailed. Trump is ordering the DOJ/FBI to shield Republicans and prosecute Democrats, the Putin way.
September 2: More Trump treason to benefit Putin. Trump is forcing the DOJ/FBI to release classified information, pertaining to indictments against top Putin associates to help them evade prosecution, to co-conspirators in congress, who will make the classified information public in ways distorted to criminalize DOJ/FBI and exonerate Russian criminals operating at Putin's orders to degrade the US.
September 1: How dare Trump rule from the White House. How dare anyone shirk their duty. Today, in a rebuke of Trump, a solemn contrast faces us and challenges us. Senator McCain's casket passed by the White House on his way from the Capitol to the Vietnam Memorial, and then onto the National Cathedral. Honor guards, veterans and patriots rode along in spirit and admiration. The nation in praise. Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama present to celebrate America. Trump by himself, banned from week of celebration of McCain, on Twitter attacking America, even claiming like Putin that the American system is corrupt, but knowing that he is no McCain. McCain is no Trump. A hero tortured for over 5 years vs a coward who thrilled himself attacking what he called dumb generals. A devotee of the Constitution, government and the rule of law vs an illicit colluder with Russia, neo-Nazis, the KKK, corrupt politicians and opponents of the DOJ/FBI and courts, US allies, health care and economic solvency against America. An adherent to American values vs a criminal. An American hero who worked his entire life to make America better vs a traitor who worked his entire life to defraud America. In death surrounded by the richness of Americans vs a small man surrounded by the cheapness of his gold fetish. Values vs dollars. Patriotic wealth vs cheap lies. Courage vs cowardice. Greatness vs smallness. A victim of cruelty vs a purveyor of cruelty. Sacrifice vs greed. Honor vs dishonor. Truth to power vs selling of lies. Leadership in the world vs building walls. Inspiration vs a nightmare. National interest vs self centeredness. Liberty and justice for all vs racism and lawlessness. Moral duty vs desertion. A giver vs a taker. A courageous leader vs a swaggering despot. An American's character vs a tyrant. Forgiveness vs blame. Defiance against America's adversaries vs their embrace to collaborate against America. True grit vs fakery. Defined by love vs a symbol of hate.
"We gather here to mourn the passing of American greatness, the real thing, not cheap rhetoric from men who will never come near the sacrifice he gave so willingly, nor the opportunistic appropriation of those who live lives of comfort and privilege while he suffered and served," Meghan McCain told the crowd of mourners at Washington National Cathedral, which included family, friends, former presidents, military officials and foreign leaders. "The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again, because America was always great," she said, a not-so-veiled reference to Trump's 2016 campaign slogan. The line was received with loud and sustained applause in the cathedral.
After a few hours of stupid tweets, and during McCain's celebration of America at the national cathedral, Trump motorcaded from the White House to one of his golf club businesses to play golf.
Trump and Putin are a tag team against the US.
August 31: Last week, anti-American Trump had his split-screen coverage: his dishonorable campaign manager Paul Manafort's guilty verdicts and his personal lawyers Michael Cohen guilty pleas. Today, America has its split-screen coverage: the honorable Senator John McCain's memorial service in the Capitol and Aretha Franlin's funeral.
August 30: Trump is giving classified national security information to 'Republicans' to use as election weapons against Democrats. Very illegal. Very Putin.
August 30: A week of memorials to John McCain the hero and American contrasts greatly from Trump the shallow and traitor. Tonight, putting the contrast on full display, Trump will rile a rally with hate, bigotry, lies, racism and disdain for American values. Trump will lead chears against the US Constitution and free press and for attendees wearing T-shirts saying, "I'd rather be in Russia."
August 29: Hating Hispanics so much, Trump is stealing passports from US citizens who are Hispanic, claiming they falsified their birth certificates. Non-whites have no place in the US for Trump.
August 29: Because he spoke with Robert Mueller's team for 30 hours about Trump, Trump fired White House Counsel Don McGahn. Also booted, the White House ethics lawyer and 3 other McGahn deputies. Both, along with Trump's other lawyers, have been telling him that impeachment for his crimes is a near certainty.
August 29: Encouraged by Trump, his governor candidate in Florida, Ron DiSantis, referred to his Democratic challenger, an African American, as a monkey.
August 28: Trump has concluded that he cannot keep hiding from justice except by destroying it. He has concluded that he will be impeached by congress and indicted for an array of crimes by Robert Mueller. Therefore, Trump is finalizing plans to fire Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Special Counsel Robert Mueller and plans to pardon of their serious crimes himself, his son Don Jr, Campaign Manager Paul Manafort and National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Trump is also greenlighting his supporters to violently overthrow the government if needed to keep Trump in control.
Notable. Trump is aggressively attacking DOJ's Bruce Ohr. Ohr is a leading expert regarding the mafia in Russia, Trump's best friends. Ohr has a successful track record against heads of the mafia and Trump intends to derail US investigation and prosecution of Russian mafia crimes in the US. Trump refuses to defend the US from the Russian mafia and Russia's interference with US elections and democracy. Putin has told Trump to cease and desist US defense. Putin is pleased that Trump is cooperating to degrade expertise, investigation and prosecution of the Russian mafia's crimes against the US.
August 28: Trump announced that he will unleash violence if his fake Republicans lose the midterm elections, especially if Republicans lose the House and/or Senate. Without his tyranny, US operations will be destroyed he says. Trump insists that only he can protect white people from non-white people.
Trump's baiting one color against others is disgusting.
August 28: Trump bragged to the prime minister of Japan that he witnesses the Pearl Harbor attack. Wow, it happened nearly 5 years before Trump was born.
August 28: 3,000 Americans died from a hurricane and its aftermath in Puerto Rico. "Fantastic," Trump said. Trump does little for non-whites. In contrast, if a non-white kills a white, Trump throws temper tantrums.
August 28: Trump woke up today at war with Google. Entering 'Trump news' into a Google search produces mostly negative responses. Trump cannot understand why anyone thinks his 'news' is negative. For Trump, it is good news that he is conspiring with Russia against the US, is not defending the US from attack, promoting racism and white supremacy, blaming non-whites for the crimes of whites, breaking health care, plunging the US into deep debt, damaging trade with the US, making government corruption official policy, destroying the Republican Party, encouraging mass murder, obstructing of justice, kidnapping Hispanic children for sexual abuse, personally profiting greatly from US taxpayers, avoiding infrastructure improvements, threatening social security and Medicare, promoting sexual assault, demeaning war heroes and veterans, violating the US Constitution and his oath of office....the list of Trump's 'good news' seems endless.
Trump intends to regulate Google, Twitter, Facebook etc, "rigged" according to Trump, so that his obscenities prevail. Trump also wants to outlaw the free press.
It seems impossible to find someone more despicable than Trump.
August 27: Trump hired Paul Manafort for campaign director in 2016 for the reason that John McCain would not hire him to run the Republican Convention in 2008. Manafort was an agent for Russia. Manafort remains in jail for witness tampering. Last week, Manafort was convicted for tax and bank fraud. Next month, Manafort goes on trial for crimes and conspiracy against the US. (a crimes of Trump as well, and one more reason Trump hates McCain)
August 26: Envy and pettiness are both sides of the same Trump coin. Trump's envy of John McCain exposes his pettiness. Not a kind word for McCain from Trump. He even attacked McCain during his last days on his death bed from brain cancer. He rejected a statement of praise for McCain after he death drafted by White House staff. And, Trump ordered the White House US Flag returned to full staff from its half staff position for McCain for less than 48 hours. Leaders around the world are praising McCain and a week-long series of commemorations for McCain will take place from Arizona, to Washington, DC to Annapolis, MD. Trump knows that he will never be so honored.
Update: After global condemnation, especially from veterans, Trump was forced to finally said John McCain's name and relowered the US Flag at the White House to half staff.
Senator John McCain's last statement, his farewell to America: "My fellow Americans, whom I have gratefully served for sixty years, and especially my fellow Arizonans, Thank you for the privilege of serving you and for the rewarding life that service in uniform and in publ ic office has allowed me to lead. I have tried to serve our country honorably. I have made mistakes, but I hope my love for America will be weighed favorably against them. I have often observed that I am the luckiest person on earth. I feel that way eve n now as I prepare for the end of my life. I have loved my life, all of it. I have had experiences, adventures and friendships enough for ten satisfying lives, and I am so thankful. Like most people, I have regrets. But I would not trade a day of my life, in good or bad times, for the best day of anyone else’s. I owe that satisfaction to the love of my family. No man ever had a more loving wife or children he was prouder of than I am of mine. And I owe it to America. To be connected to America’s causes – liberty, equal justice, respect for the dignity of all people – brings happiness more sublime than life’s fleeting pleasures. Our identities and sense of worth are not circumscribed but enlarged by serving good causes bigger than ourselves. ‘Fellow Americans’ – that association has meant more to me than any other. I lived and died a proud American. We are citizens of the world’s greatest republic, a nation of ideals, not blood and soil. We are blessed and are a blessing to humanity when we uphold and advance those ideals at home and in the world. We have helped liberate more people from tyranny and poverty than ever before in history. We have acquired great wealth and power in the process. We weaken our greatness when we confuse our patriotism with tribal rivalries that have sown resentment and hatred and violence in all the corners of the globe. We weaken it when we hide behind walls, rather than tear them down, when we doubt the power of our ideals, rather than trust them to be the great force for change they have always been. We are three -hundred-and-twenty-five million opinionated, vociferous individuals. We argue and compete and sometimes even vilify each other in our raucous public debates. But we have always had so much more in common with each other than in disagreement. If only we remember that and give each other the benefit of the presumption that we all love our country we will get through these challenging times. We will come through them stronger than before. We always do. Ten years ago, I had the privilege to concede defeat in the election for president. I want to end my farewell to you with the heartfelt faith in Americans that I felt so powerfully that evening. I feel it powerfully still. Do not despair of our present difficulti es but believe always in the promise and greatness of America, because nothing is inevitable here. Americans never quit. We never surrender. We never hide from history. We make history. Farewell, fellow Americans. God bless you, and God bless America."
August 25: Last month, Senator John McCain, deemed a coward by cowardly Trump, was disgusted by Trump's failed show with Putin in Helsinki. "Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake, President Trump proved not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin. He and Putin seemed to be speaking from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant against the fair questions of a free press, and to grant Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies to the world. Coming close on the heels of President Trump’s bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today’s press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American Presidency. No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant. Not only did President Trump fail to speak the truth about an adversary; but speaking for America to the world, our president failed to defend all that makes us who we are—a republic of free people dedicated to the cause of liberty at home and abroad."
Trump enjoyed mocking McCain, leading his supporters especially at Trump's hateful rallies to chant against McCain. Trump hated McCain's values and his service to America.
Today, McCain lost his last battle. He died from brain cancer at 4:28 PM Arizona time.
Trump will never rise higher than the bottom of McCain's shoes.
Those pro-Trump 'contributors' on cable news and other media outlets are not allowed to say anything negative/true about Trump. The signed CONTRACTS with Trump to not to so and will, per contract, suffer significant penalties should they do so. They are required, per contract, to spin everything toward beneficial for Trump. Hardly honest commentary on their part.
August 25: One of the affairs that Trump arranged with The National Enquirer (November 15, 2015 contract with $30,000 hush money to hotel doorman) to hide is an affair with the Trump World Tower hotel housekeeper that produced a child. Undoubtedly, more hushed adulterous affairs will be revealed.
Trump is the envy of criminals everywhere. They wish they could immunize themselves with pardons, firing law enforcement officers and government attorneys, corrupt the justice system, tamper with witnesses, obstruct justice and get allies to threaten the death of adversaries, judges and jurors.
August 23: Trump is conspiring with corrupt layers and Fox News more counts of witness tampering and obstruction of justice. To stop witnesses from testifying against him (eg, his family, Paul Manafort), Trump is finalizing plans to pardon them of serious crimes, eg bank and tax fraud, conspiracy with Russia, conspiracy against the US). Death threats too via his followers. Witnesses who tell the truth are rats according to Trump and should be prosecuted themselves as outlaws.
The most efficient way to understand Trump is to see him as a mafia boss, a threatening strong man, rewarding secrecy and conspiracy, demanding payment for protection, forming unholy alliances with unsavory criminals and adversaries to the US, making a mockery of the justice system and rule of law, and corrupting government, law enforcement, attorneys, judges and juries, trials and the media. Thriving on crime, oblivious to the consequences to others. The Trump show is like watching a Godfather sequel.
August 23: Trump threatened to devastate the economy if he is impeached. If he can't be king, then blow everything up. Destroy everyone else's life. Start a civil war.
August 23: Trump proclaimed that his Justice Dept. is not longer a justice department. It is traitor Attorney Jeff Sessions' 'justice' department. Trump hired Sessions because unlike FBI Director James Comey who would not pledge loyalty to Trump, thus fired, Sessions pledged loyalty to Trump over the US. But, according to Trump, Sessions has violated his loyalty pledge. For Trump, loyalty to the US is senseless. Only loyalty to Trump matters.
Trump has transformed the Republican Party to a corrupt organization.
Senator Lindsay Graham: "You don't even have to be convicted of a crime. Impeachment is about cleansing the office. Impeachment is about restoring honor and integrity to the office."
Oops. For Trump and Russia, Graham changed his mind. Corruption and ruining America are now good.
August 22: To assist his illicit election campaign, Trump directed the National Enquirer to silence Playboy bunny Karen McDougal and other women having sex affairs with Trump. David Pecker, publisher for the National Enquirer, provided prosecutors with details about payments Michael Cohen arranged with women who alleged sexual encounters with Trump, including Trump’s knowledge of the deals. (Prosecutors have substantial physical evidence as well, including audio recordings between Cohen and Trump, financial payments, emails, text messages, documents and more.)
Trump's response, crimes are not crimes....even though Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes, under penalty of perjury, with and directed by Trump, crimes accepted as crimes by the US Dept. of Justice, FBI and the federal judge overseeing adjudication of Cohen's 8 crimes.
And, Trump went on a publicity tour to call those who tell the truth to law enforcement officers, prosecutors and judges rats, but praising those (eg, Paul Manafort) who don't. Like a mafia boss, Trump said that Manafort "refused to break," admiring loyalty to Trump's criminal empire. Trump thrives on fellow criminals who remain silent and says that telling the truth "should be outlawed." More Trump crimes to obstruct justice and tamper with witnesses.
UPDATE: David Pecker was granted immunity from prosecution for his criminal collusion with Trump and is now providing evidene of Trump's illicit use of The National Enquirer.
August 21: Trump's first 2 members of congress to endorse his candidacy have been charged with crimes. Chris Collins for insider trading, wherein Collins family members made hundreds of thousands of dollars. Duncan Hunter for campaign finance crime, wherein he stole $250,000 from campaign donors. Both involved criminal conspiracy.
August 21: 4-5 PM Eastern time was as riveting as it gets. A landslide of crime for 2 Trump insiders on high-def TV. On the TV screen were simulcasts of the guilt, Cohen's on the left and reporters rushing out of the courtroom on the right guilty verdict by guilty verdict for Manafort's.
Things are adding up. Trump campaign manager: Guilty. Trump personal lawyer: Guilty. Trump deputy campaign manager: Guilty. Trump National Security Advisor: Guilty. Trump foreign policy advisor: Guilty. Several cabinet secretaries and dozens of White House staffers outcast for corruption. Dozens of lawsuits against Trump arre progressing. Things will get much worse.
August 21: Giuliani told us a few weeks ago that Trump paid Cohen "a little extra" for their criminal conspiracy to silence Stormy Daniels for Trump to win the election. Today, we learned how much extra. Trump paid Daniels $130,000 in hush money. Trump reimbursed Cohen, who took out an illegal loan for which he was also charged as a crime, $420,000. That little extra amounted to $290,000. Again, Cohen pleaded guilty to crimes that Trump criminally directed Cohen to perpetrate. Trump masterminded these crimes for which Cohen is going to prison. A similar fate should be awarded to Trump.
August 21: Cohen's attorney, Lanny Davis, reported that Cohen has direct knowledge that Trump criminally colluded with Russia to win the election. Cohen has numerous documents and audio tapes with Trump proving Trump's criminal conspiracy. First, Trump planned with Russian spies the infamous meeting in Trump Tower in June 2016. Second, Trump planned with Russian spies the hacking of DNC and John Podesta email accounts and orchestrated their release to the public to win the election (last week, Omarosa said this as well). THIS IS CRIMINAL CONSPIRACY WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN AGAINST THE US AND AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS IS COLLUSION. THIS ENABLED A ILLEGITIMATE ELECTION TO WIN THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE US. THIS IS TREASON.
August 21: Trump's campaign manager and personal attorney for 10+ years are officially convicted felons today. Campaign Manager Paul Manafort was found guilty by a federal jury on 8 counts of bank fraud/tax fraud/failure to report a foreign bank account: 1 conviction/5 convictions/2 convictions, respectively (subject to 80 years in prison). Ten other charges against Manafort may get a follow-up trial; only 1 juror would not find Manafort guilty on these 10 counts, the other 11 found him guilty). Personal attorney Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to bank fraud and campaign finance fraud: 8 convictions – 5 for tax fraud, 1 for bank fraud, 2 for campaign finance crimes WITH AND AT THE DIRECTION OF TRUMP (subject to 65 years in prison; the 2 pertain to hush money paid by Trump to porn star Stormy Daniels ($130,000), the other to Playboy bunny Karen McDougal ($150,000) to influence Trump's campaign (Trump directed The National Enquirer to pay McDougal), thus illegal and excessive campaign contributions; a few weeks ago, Cohen released an audio tape of Trump conspiring and directing Cohen's campaign finance crimes; Trump is an 'unindicted co-conspirator' and could yet be charged with these and other crimes). Trump told us he would bring the best. Turns out they are criminals (Manafort, Cohen, Gates, Flynn, Papadopoulas, more to come). (16 total convictions today and 10 charges yet fully resolved in the Manafort trial)
Aware of the death threats of Trump supporters against them, as encouraged by Trump, the jury does not want their names to be released.
And, next month, Manafort is in federal court again for a trial covering several different charges.
And, Manafort and Cohen were both top conduits between Trump and Russia.
Mueller and Rosenstein didn't convict Manafort and Cohen. In Manafort's case, it was a jury of 12. In Cohen's case, it was Cohen himself.
Already, we have Trump crimes far worse that Richard Nixon's. Stay tuned.
Trump has made the White House a throne for his criminal empire.
Blame it on the Internet? 'Social media' and 'blogs' unleashed a remarkable outlet for racists, haters and anarchists. They can now troll vile one liners, the more vile the better. Millions of times every day. A story of rape of a child typically produces sickening comments, you've seen them. The trollers even try to out do the rapists with commentary of how they would rape. Even a story of American values produces degradations. As do just about any other story or news report. Out come the trolls to unleash their obscenity and hate. Trump has encouraged these anonymous posters to spew their commentary more readily. Trump says what they troll, 'he talks like we think' they say. Unfortunately, trollers, haters and racists account for 30-40% of voters and 80-90% of 'fake' Republicans, who have compelled elected representatives to endorse Trump's vulgarity against America and its patriots. Truth means nothing to them, they prefer obscenity.
The worst thing one can do is to hurt another. Trump's specialty.
August 20: 177 more national security officials blasted Trump. "In a recent statement 15 senior former senior intelligence officials expressed their strong opposition to actual or threatened removal of security clearances from former government officials. All of us (177 more today) believe it is critical to protect classified information from unauthorized disclosure. But we believe equally strongly that former government officials have the right to express their unclassified views on what they see as critical national security issues without fear of being punished for doing so. Our signatures below do not necessarily mean that we concur with the opinions expressed by former CIA Director Brennan or the way in which he expressed them. What they do represent, however, is our firm belief that the country will be weakened if there is a political litmus test applied before seasoned experts are allowed to share their views."
It is not possible to be a patriot and support Trump. Never before have so many patriots opposed the US president.
August 20: Trump says that those who tell the truth are rats. Let liars run our lives.
Truth isn't truth. Alternative facts are.
We are witness to a major setback in America's progress. Sure, our progress has been marred by episodes of corruption, but they were relatively contained. Now, corruption is the official policy of the US, infused into every government institution. Trump is determined to create a fascist state for whites where most will loose their rights, health and economic opportunities. We can hope that a course correction happens soon enough to reverse Trump's government of crime, moral decay and treason.
Many of us have learned it is much easier to tell the truth and more beneficial to our spirit. Trump proves several times everyday with tweets, lies and massive government and political corruption that he can't handle the truth. Voluminous tweet attacks, racist rallies, blame games and punitive executive orders are his obscene vocabulary.
The more cornered he becomes by the rule of law, common decency and the women he has degraded, the more vindictive he will become. If he has to fire the best people left in government, order his supporters to aim their guns against Americans or start a nuclear war, he will. He will use civil war to get what he wants and divert responsibility for his crimes.
What will happen when die-hard Trump fans figure out that they have been scammed?
August 19: Trump, the king of fake news, sent Rudy Giuliani to NBC's Meet the Press to say, "Truth isn't truth." Giuliani also said the purpose of the June 2016 in Trump Tower with the highest level officials in Trump, campaign (one floor below Trump's office) was to get from the Russian government stolen emails relevant to Hillary Clinton (this is a crime). And, Giuliani said that Robert Mueller is a criminal. A year ago, Trump sent Kellyanne Conway to the same news show to sell "alternative facts." A few weeks ago, Trump proclaimed, "What you're seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening."
Update. August 20: Trump said, "Even if I am telling the truth that makes me a liar."
August 19: The US president is supposed to be the most powerful person in the world. Trump is far from it, weak and scared. Omarosa and Stormy Daniels have him on the run. Racists and Putin control him. An Obama ghost haunts him when he is alone. The truth scares him 24 hours a day. Inside, he is little more than that Trump crybaby blimp on tour. Outside, he is a loud-mouth know-it-all clown. All he can do is attack, lie, blame and fall down.
But, he has power and is abusing it to degrade America, constitutional rights, national security, NATO, trade, leadership, ethics, government, the environment, the rule of law, congress and the judiciary, opportunity, and future of our children. Criminals and the dishonorable rule in Trump land.
August 18: Collusion evidence. From the DOJ sentencing report to the court for George Papadopoulos, recommending prison time: "The defendant’s crime was serious and caused damage to the government’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The defendant lied in order to conceal his contacts with Russians and Russian intermediaries during the campaign and made his false statements to investigators...the defendant met the Professor for the first time on or about March 14, 2016, after the defendant had already learned he would be a foreign policy advisor for the Trump campaign; the Professor showed interest in the defendant only after learning of his role on the campaign; and the Professor told the defendant about the Russians possessing “dirt” on Clinton in late April 2016...more than a month after the defendant had joined the campaign...the defendant understood the Professor to have substantial connections to high-level Russian government officials...the defendant first met the Female Russian National on or about March 24, 2016, after he had joined the campaign; he believed that she had connections to high-level Russian government officials and could help him arrange a potential foreign policy trip to Russia; he informed the campaign of his beliefs regarding her connections and during the campaign he emailed and spoke over Skype on numerous occasions with her about the potential trip to Russia...the defendant repeatedly lied throughout the interview in order to conceal the timing and significance of information the defendant had received regarding the Russians possessing “dirt” on Hillary Clinton, as well as his own outreach to Russia on behalf of the campaign. The defendant’s false statements were intended to harm the investigation, and did so."
August 18: While Trump keeps running away, the White House Chief Counsel, Don McGahn, spoke with Mueller investigators for 30 hours during 3 meetings over the course of 9 months. McGahn does NOT represent Trump, but represents the Office of the President. He provided the investigators examining whether Mr. Trump obstructed justice a clear view of the president’s most intimate moments. Among them were Mr. Trump’s comments and actions during the firing of the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, and Mr. Trump’s obsession with putting a loyalist in charge of the inquiry, including his repeated urging of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to claim oversight of it. Mr. McGahn was also centrally involved in Mr. Trump’s attempts to fire the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, which investigators might not have discovered without him. McGahn feared Trump was setting up McGahn to take the blame for any possible illegal acts of obstruction. Worried that Mr. Trump would ultimately blame him in the inquiry, Mr. McGahn told people he was determined to avoid the fate of the White House counsel for Nixon, John Dean, who was imprisoned in the Watergate scandal. Trump wrongly believed that Mr. McGahn would act as a personal lawyer would for clients and solely defend his interests to investigators. Trump’s behavior has so exasperated Mr. McGahn that he has called the president “King Kong” behind his back. McGahn decided to fully cooperate with Mr. Mueller. It was, he believed, the only choice he had to protect himself. (New York Times)
Trump is illegitimate
Trump attacks those protecting America to degrade America
August 17: CIA Director John Brennan. "I think right now, this country is in a crisis in terms of what Mr. Trump has done and is liable to do. And so, are the Republicans on the Hill — who have given him a pass — going to wait for a disaster to happen before they actually find their backbones and spines, to speak up against somebody who clearly, clearly is not carrying out his responsibilities with any sense of purpose and common sense from the standpoint of national security."
August 17: Trump loves killing Muslim children. The bomb that killed 40 children in Yemen was supplied by Trump (a 500-pound laser-guided MK 82 bomb made by Lockheed Martin). He has killed thousands of civilians in Syria, many children, but withdrew US aid to his Syrian victims. 'Suffer and die' he says.
August 17: Why not add jury tampering to your witness tampering and obstruction of justice? Day 2 of jury deliberations today in the Manafort trial (18 counts spanning tens of millions of dollars of income and tax fraud), and Trump announced, "I think the whole Manafort trial is sad. I think it's a very sad day for our country. He worked for a me for a very short period of time. But you know what, he happens to be a very good person. I think it's very sad what they've done to Paul Manafort." The US President is in effect telling jurors, not sequestered from the news and presidential announcements, to overlook Manaforts massive fraud....because he is "a good person." And, all the talk of Trump pardoning Manafort, an abuse of power and obstruction of justice, sends a message to the jury that their guilty verdicts would be a waste of time.
While you're at it, why not scare the trial judge? Trump has stirred so much hate that the judge announced that he has received death threats and has secured marshals' protection, and to protect jurors from assassination he will not release their names. If the jurors hear about the death threats against the judge and that he is sealing their names from the public, won't they be scared as well? Won't they get the message to exonerate Manafort? Trump and his minions want to derail the trial at all costs.
JUDGE ELLIS ANNOUNCED TODAY THAT JURORS WERE "SCARED" AND "AFRAID." Manafort and his lawyers left court pleased and thanked Trump for his judge, jury and witness tampering and threats that scared them.
August 16: Trump spent the day attacking the Boston Globe. As encouraged, the Globe received a bomb threat. Trump's media attacks have already produced several journalist deaths and Trump is thirsty for more killing of what he calls "the enemy of the people."
Trump's trade war is also producing other results Trump seeks to threaten America. China is actively developing its fleet of long-range bombers and training its pilots for missions targeting the US, according to a new Pentagon report. "The deployment and integration of nuclear capable bombers would, for the first time, provide China with a nuclear 'triad' of delivery systems dispersed across land, sea, and air," the report said.
Concurrently, Trump is degrading US national security.
Trump is orchestrating catastrophe for America.
August 16: Sending a message around the world, the architect of the Osama bin Laden raid, Admiral William McRaven, said that it was a badge of honor for former CIA Director John Brennan to have his security clearance stripped by Trump. "I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him. 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."
Thirteen former CIA chiefs (eight former CIA directors, five former deputy directors and former director of national intelligence) have denounced Trump's decision to revoke John Brennan's national security clearance. "We have never before seen the approval or removal of security clearances used as a political tool, as was done in this case. Beyond that, this action is quite clearly a signal to other former and current officials."
60 CIA officials also blasted Trump.
Trump has prepared several more vindictive security clearance revocations, not for national security but to harm it and to have them at the ready for public relations diversions he will need in the future.
Allies and adversaries see that the US is breaking. Trump is determined to destroy US national security.
Trump has become the most notorious criminal on earth.
August 16: Trump ordered the Attorney General of the United States to arrest Omarosa. No crimes, just arrest her. More banana republic on parade. Abuse of power is Trump's go to attack mechanism.
August 16: Trump has revealed that 30-40% of voters, 90% of fake 'Republicans', are racists, prefer Russia over America, and are thrilled at large-scale government kidnapping and abuse of non-white children.
August 16: To prove his lack of manhood Trump is going ahead with a colossal waste of money, $92 million for a military parade in DC to celebrate his tyranny and banana republic. (today, Trump postponed the parade to 2019 to accomodate Putin's schedule so that he can attend and oversee the parade with Trump)
August 16: We find greatness in the opposite of Trump. Today, a black women who gave us R-E-S-P-E-C-T passed away. Aretha Franklin, the great. The Queen of Soul will always outshine.
Dignity, her voice sang America
August 16: About 350 newspapers all have one thing in common on today: A statement supporting the free press and decrying Trump's attacks against the media.
In response and like other dictators, Trump declared the free press, made possible by the US Constitution, the "opposition party." Trump cannot stand the US Constitution and wants it burned.
August 16: A year ago, Trump bragged to Russian spies he invited into the Oval Office and announced on NBC that he fired FBI Director James Comey because of his role to investigate Russia's attack on the 2016 election. Yesterday, Trump bragged to the Wall Street Journal that he revoked CIA Director John Brennan's secururity clearance and is planning to revoke security clearance for other national security officers as well for the same anti-US reason, "I call it the rigged witch hunt, [it] is a sham. And these people led it! I don’t trust many of those people on that list. I think that they’re very duplicitous. I think they’re not good people." Trump despises those on his enemy's list because they were protecting the US. Trump prefers treason.
Trump's enemies list of national security leaders use their security clearances, in addition to providing historical continuity and experience, to prepare to testify in investigations to enhance national security. Revoking their clearance will prevent their informed testimony. Thus, yet another case of witness tampering by Trump.
CIA Director John Brennan's response: "Russian denials are, in a word, hogwash. Having worked closely with the F.B.I. over many years on counterintelligence investigations, I was well aware of Russia’s ability to work surreptitiously within the United States, cultivating relationships with individuals who wield actual or potential power. They troll political, business and cultural waters in search of gullible or unprincipled individuals who become pliant in the hands of their Russian puppet masters. Too often, those puppets are found. Mr. Trump’s claims of no collusion are, in a word, hogwash. The only questions that remain are whether the collusion that took place constituted criminally liable conspiracy, whether obstruction of justice occurred to cover up any collusion or conspiracy, and how many members of “Trump Incorporated” attempted to defraud the government by laundering and concealing the movement of money into their pockets. Mr. Trump clearly has become more desperate to protect himself and those close to him, which is why he made the politically motivated decision to revoke my security clearance in an attempt to scare into silence others who might dare to challenge him. Now more than ever, it is critically important that the special counsel, Robert Mueller, and his team of investigators be allowed to complete their work without interference — from Mr. Trump or anyone else — so that all Americans can get the answers they so rightly deserve."
August 15: To degrade US national security, to punish those national intelligence directors that found Russia's attack on the US (interfering in the 2016 election on behalf of Trump), to degrade utilization of their life-long experience with US adversaries, and to obstruct justice in investigating Putin-Trump collusion, Trump is removing their security clearance. Today, without consultation from national security directors, Trump stripped CIA Director John Brennan's national security clearance, removing his decades of experience as an asset for national security agencies to protect the US. Trump is orchestrating deeper takeover of the US by US adversaries.
"It’s astounding how often you fail to live up to minimum standards of decency, civility, & probity. Seems like you will never understand what it means to be president, nor what it takes to be a good, decent, & honest person. So disheartening, so dangerous for our Nation." (John Brennan)
Notably, Trump maintains national security clearance for Michael Flynn, a Russian agent, for which he was appointed as Trump's national security director, and convicted felon.
This episode of Trump's degradation of the US underscores an important matter. Trump's revocation of security clearances from national intelligence officals is legal, but it is wrong....a wrongful and dangerous attack against US national security on behalf of US adversaries.
August 14: It turns there is another reason why White House staff will not criticize Trump. Trump forced them to sign, illegally, a loyalty pledge that trumps their oath of office. They are subject to lawsuits from Trump should they disparage Trump. Blackmail and obstruction of justice.
August 14: Another Trump whopper lie. He claims Obama was a looser, creating only 195,000 jobs for African Americans in 8 years. The fact, Obama created 3.2 million jobs for African Americans (according to Trump's Dept. of Labor). Trump rules by lies, name calling and racism.
It is amazing that a porn star (Stormy Daniels) and a reality TV star (Omarosa) so easily expose Trump and generate so much twitter and litigation from Trump.
August 14: Trump hates African Americans, inspiring an explosion of racist attacks and murders. Over the last few weeks, he has attacked prominent African Americans, claiming that they have low intellect. Today, he called Omarosa, "a crazed, crying lowlife....that dog," trying to cast Omarosa the major villain in the world (while praising Putin and Kim Jong Un).
It all began in the 1990s, when Trump would code apartment applications of African Americans with "C," standing for 'colored' to earmark applicants for rejection. Also, Trump called for hanging 5 teenagers because they were African American. Trump later went 'full Monty' by vicious attacks against Barrack Obama as being a dumb, fake American and inferior. Today, an audiotape revealed Trump staff strategizing how to handle Trump's using the 'n-word'.
Trump has made demonization of non-whites – African Americans, Hispanics and Moslims – the official policy of the US.
UPDATE. The White House announced that Trump cannot control himself, using the Office of the President of the United States to attack African Americans he watches on CNN and MSNBC. Also, the White House announced they cannot guarantee that Trump does not us racial slurs and the n-word and has not been recorded doing so. (when Trump watches someone telling the truth about his immorality and crimes, he rants on Twitter, on TV and during his rallies, eg against Omarosa, Mueller, Rosenstein; Trump has attacked Omarosa on 10 tweets in the last 24 hours)
August 13: Small mind. Small soul. Small Man. Trump renamed 'John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019', removing John McCain's name.
In 1958, McCain entered military service. After nearly killed several times, On October 26, 1967, McCain was flying his twenty-third mission in Vietnam. As he neared the target, warning systems in McCain's A-4E Skyhawk alerted him that he was being tracked by enemy fire-control radar. Like other U.S. pilots in similar situations, he did not break off the bombing run, and he held his dive until he released his bombs at about 3,500 feet. As he started to pull up, the Skyhawk's wing was blown off by a Soviet-made SA-2 anti-aircraft missile fired by the North Vietnamese Air Defense Command's 61st Battalion. McCain's plane went into a vertical inverted spin. McCain bailed out upside down at high speed; the force of the ejection fractured his right arm in three places, his left arm, and his right leg at the knee, and knocked him unconscious. Several Vietnamese, possibly led by Department of Industry clerk Mai Van On, pulled him ashore. A mob gathered around, spat on him, kicked him, and stripped him of his clothes; his left shoulder was crushed with the butt of a rifle and he was bayoneted in his left foot and abdominal area. He was then transported to Hanoi's main Hỏa Lò Prison, nicknamed the "Hanoi Hilton" by American POWs. His captors refused to give him medical care unless he gave them military information; they beat and interrogated him. In March 1968, McCain was put into solitary confinement, where he remained for two years. In late August 1968, a program of vigorous torture methods began on McCain. The North Vietnamese used rope bindings to put him into prolonged, painful positions and severely beat him every two hours, all while he was suffering from dysentery. His right leg was reinjured, his ribs were cracked, some teeth were broken at the gumline, and his left arm was re-fractured. Lying in his own waste, his spirit was broken. Altogether, McCain was held as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam for five and a half years, nearly five of them after his refusal to accept the out-of-sequence repatriation offer. His wartime injuries left him permanently incapable of raising either arm more than 80 degrees.
But, McCain is not a racist, so cowardly Trump markets McCain as a coward for being shot down, captured and tortured. McCain the patriot vs Trump the traitor.
Update: Trump says he will violate this law and not condemn Russia's annexation of Crimea as required by the law he signed. Trump is pro-Russia and anti-US.
August 13: A day after Omarosa was fired from her year-long White House job, paid at the highest level ($180,000, the same as Chief of Staff John Kelly), Trump called her last December saying, "Omarosa, what’s going on? I just saw on the news that you’re thinking about leaving. What happened? Nobody even told me about it. You know, they run a big operation but I didn’t know it. I didn’t know that. Damnit. I don’t love you leaving at all." QUESTIONS: who is "they" Trump mentioned; what is the "big operation." Is Trump not running things at the White House? Trump has a deep state? Omarosa was offered, but declined, $180,000/year hush money (like the hush money paid to Trump's affairs). A couple days ago, Trump called her "low life." Like Trump says about other African Americans, Trump today said that Omarosa was "stupid."
Admired by them for his verbal and tweet attacks and violence promotion against non-whites, racists insist that Trump is not a racist. They pledge loyalty to their leader.
August 12: "The Founding Fathers had someone just like Donald Trump in mind when they banned any and all emoluments to the president from any foreign or state governments. Conservatives, we are constantly told, believe in strict adherence to the Constitution based primarily on the text and secondarily on the views of the Founding Fathers. If conservatives really were “originalists,” they would be the first to say that Donald Trump is exactly the kind of president who ought to be impeached. The Founding Fathers, savvy students of history and human nature, were highly attuned to the risks of public corruption — actual or perceived — and inserted language into the Articles of Confederation and later into the Constitution to guard against such human frailties. They wanted to make sure that anyone who held a public office would serve only one master: the American people. It seems the Founding Fathers had Donald Trump (or someone very like him) in mind when they wrote those (emoluments) clauses into the Constitution. They were concerned about our government officials being corrupted by foreign or domestic powers. Alexander Hamilton argued in Federalist Paper #73 that the domestic emoluments clause was designed to keep the president independent and incorruptible. “In the main,” Hamilton argued, “it will be found that a power over a man’s support is power over his will.” The Founding Fathers, in other words, would have impeached Trump in a New York minute." (Rex Nutting)
Trump embraces US adversaries but attacks NATO, Americans, Republicans, Democrats, the legal system, judges, US national security, children and his appointees (eg, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Omarosa, Paul Manafort).
August 11: Trump is terrified, panic stricken. Watching the Manafort trial exposing his money-laundering, tax evasion and bank fraud, Trump knows his financial and descrimination crimes and treason are far worse.
August 11: Around the world, the word 'racist' compels most people to identify Trump as the most infamous racist in the world. This weekend is the one-year anniversary of the Charlottesville racist march and murder of Heather Heyer, killed for peacefully protesting against racism (dozens of others were injured). This weekend, those KKK members, white supremacists and neo-Nazis are marching in Washington, DC, the operations base of their cult leader, Trump (who spends the weekend playing golf with fellow racists at his posh club in New Jersey; membership fee – $300,000).
Trump and his racists are the antithesis of Ronald Reagan, who said January 19, 1989, "And since this is the last speech that I will give as President, I think it's fitting to leave one final thought, an observation about a country which I love. It was stated best in a letter I received not long ago. A man wrote me and said: "You can go to live in France, but you cannot become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey or Japan, but you cannot become a German, a Turk, or a Japanese. But anyone, from any corner of the Earth, can come to live in America and become an American." Yes, the torch of Lady Liberty symbolizes our freedom and represents our heritage, the compact with our parents, our grandparents, and our ancestors. It is that lady who gives us our great and special place in the world. For it's the great life force of each generation of new Americans that guarantees that America's triumph shall continue unsurpassed into the next century and beyond. Other countries may seek to compete with us; but in one vital area, as a beacon of freedom and opportunity that draws the people of the world, no country on Earth comes close. This, I believe, is one of the most important sources of America's greatness. We lead the world because, unique among nations, we draw our people—our strength-from every country and every corner of the world. And by doing so we continuously renew and enrich our nation." Trump throws all this out, preferring white trash white supremacy and overthrow of US national security by Russia, broken trade and devastated rule of law. Trump's speeches, in contrast to Reagan, scream obscenities, denigrate Americans and America, and encourage hate and violence. Trump has created a crisis of moral leadership in America.
Reagan also said, "Through this Golden Door has come millions of men and women. These families came here to work. Others came to America and often harrowing conditions. They didn’t ask what this country could do for them but what they could do to make this refuge the greatest home of freedom in history. They brought with them courage and the values of family, work, and freedom. Let us pledge to each other that we can make America great again."
The attorney for first lady Melania Trump’s parents confirmed that the couple became U.S. citizens August 10 with help from their daughter, in a process sometimes called “chain migration” or family-based migration that Trump demands abolishing.
June 2015, Trump proclaimed, "The American Dream is dead." Surely, he is killing it
But, as we celebrate the end of world war, our civil war, we will celebrate the end of Trumpism.
August 9: Trump's threats of violence against the media have forced journalists to hire bodyguards.
August 9: "My problem with Donald Trump sitting down is that Donald Trump talks in such loopy ways, and he’s constantly contradicting himself and saying things. There’s a massive amount of risk. The risk of losing his office. That’s the risk." (President George Bush's press secretary, Ari Fleischer) Trump is incapable of telling the truth.
August 8: According to Rudy Giuliani, if Trump said he did NOT fire Director James Comey over the 'Russia investigation', then Trump would be committing perjury, ie lying and obstructing justice.
Non-white? Expect to be tasered, framed, beaten, tortured and killed. Trump is making this insanity worse.
August 8: Encouraged by Trump, Russia has already penetrated several election systems in Florida. Senator Bill Nelson: "They have already penetrated certain counties in the state and they now have free rein to move about. We were requested by the chairman and vice chairman of the Intelligence Committee to let supervisors of election in Florida know that the Russians are in their records."
August 8: Trump's number of lies in office approaching 5,000.
August 8: Trump announced that he will not answer questions from Robert Mueller about collusion, obstruction of justice or anything else Trump would lie about. Out of bounds Trump says. Trump couldn't even talk about golfing without lying. Oh, the games of scared criminals.
August 8: The Trump Club is a corrupt racket. Numerous campaign and White House staff have been forced out due to corruption. Today, Trump's Deputy Campaign Chair (Rick Gates) continues his trial testimony about crimes he conducted with the Campaign Chair (Paul Manafort), including during the campaign to collude with Russia (also included a bribery load for $16 million from a Chicago banker in exchange for possible appointment as Secretary of the Army). TODAY, a leading Trump co-conspirator in congress (Chris Collins) was arrested for insider trading (and lying to the FBI) initiated while he partying with Trump at the White House. Trump continues to refuse to tell the truth to Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller about Trump's collusion with Russia and his obstruction of justice.
August 7: VP Mike Pence supports Trump's immorality, criminal activity, treason, obstruction of justice, rasicm, adultery and sexual assault. But, for other presidents, Pence actually has standards. "Further, the Presidents repeated lies to the American people in this matter compound the case against him as they demonstrate his failure to protect the institution of the presidency as the 'inspiring supreme symbol of all that is highest in our American ideals.' Leaders affect the lives of families far beyond their own 'private life'. In the Bible story of Esther we are told of a king who was charged to put right his own household because there would be 'no end of disrespect and discord' among the families of the kingdom if he failed to do so. In a day when reckless extramarital sexual activity is manifesting itself in our staggering rates of illegitimacy and divorce, now more than ever, America needs to be able to look to her First Family as role models of all that we have been and can be again. If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous. Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of all of our highest hopes and ideals and values. To demand less is to do an injustice to the blood that bought our freedoms. Our leaders must either act to restore the luster and dignity of the institution of the Presidency or we can be certain that this is only the beginning of an even more difficult time for our land. For the nation to move on, the President must move out." But Trump, the most illicit president in history, gets a pass from Pence.
Trump pardoned this felon ex-sheriff now running for Senator
Trump is designing the US to fail. Lies prevail. Education sucks. Global partnerships and the environment be damned. Societal institutions are corrupt. Racism is on fire. Non-whites are deported. The US Constitution is dying. Plastic guns legalized. Core economic fundamentals are discarded. The ultra rich pay little income tax. Military service is primarily for the poor. Families are torn apart. Children are abused.
August 5: After 2 years of vehement denial and claiming fake news, Trump admitted to a crime (eg, conspiracy to defraud the United States), treason and obstruction of justice. Until today, Trump maintained that the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower (and his July 2017 memo about this meeting) was about adoption. Today, Trump admitted the 2016 meeting was intentionally and in fact about Russia's criminal contribution to his campaign to hand over to Trump stolen Hillary Clinton materials and his 2017 memo was to cover up this crime. Trump's admission also proves that his son LIED to congress about the 2016 meeting, also claiming the meeting was for adoption and that he wrote the 2017 memo; perjury. For 2 years, Trump, his lawyers, congressional co-conspirators, White House staff and TV representatived LIED.
August 5: Demonstrating yet again his incompetence, Trump claimed that his trade war will decrease the US national debt. Higher costs and decreased revenues will pay debt!
August 5: Vladimir Putin appointed actor and Trump supporter, Steven Segal, who became a Russian citizen in 2016 so inspired by Trump's embrace of Putin, as a "special representative" on US-Russian humanitarian ties. Segal and Trump are close friends of Putin. Putin-Trump USR (United States of Russia) is taking shape.
August 4: A few weeks ago, traitor Trump announced, "The appointment of the Special Counsel is totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL!" A federal judge ruled FALSE, whose comprehensive opinion denying the challenge to the special counsel regulation is no surprise. Republicans and Democrats alike for two decades have said the same. According to the judge, "Federal prosecutors are granted broad authority under our laws to choose their targets and pursue their investigations. The witness raises legitimate questions, but his concerns are not legally sustainable. The scope of the Special Counsel’s power falls well within the boundaries the Constitution permits, as the Special Counsel is supervised by an official who is himself accountable to the elected President. The witness’s remaining arguments fare no better. Multiple statutes authorize the Special Counsel’s appointment, and the official who appointed the Special Counsel had power to do so. The regulations seek to achieve “day-to-day independence” of the Special Counsel, who is “appointed to investigate and, if appropriate, prosecute matters when the Attorney General concludes that extraordinary circumstances exist such that the public interest would be served by removing a large degree of responsibility for the matter from the Department of Justice.” Id. The regulations leave a Special Counsel “free to structure the investigation as he or she wishes and to exercise independent prosecutorial discretion to decide whether charges should be brought, within the context of the established procedures of the Department,” while retaining in the Attorney General “ultimate responsibility for the matter and how it is handled.” Id. The regulations thus “explicitly acknowledge the possibility of review of specific decisions reached by the Special Counsel.” Id. The regulations also contemplate that the Acting Attorney General would assume responsibility over a Special Counsel matter “if the Attorney General is personally recused in the matter.” Id. The Department of Justice promulgated the regulations without either notice and comment or a 30-day delay in the effective date as “rule[s] relat[ing] to matters of agency management or personnel.” Id. at 37,041."
He's terrified. His inner gremlin of self worthlessness burns deep. A sociopath, he desperately tries to ease his nightmare, pumping his ego to gargantuan proportion, blaming lesser mortals for his ailment, clinging to those who seem to him to have mastered the demon – the world's strongmen (Putin, Kim Jong Un), painting himself gold, bragging that he is the smartest, ruining the lives of as many as he can and destroying what others believe is good (values, family, health, truth). He does not know what good is. He wants to go down in history as the world's most diabolical tyrant. America be damned.
"What responsible & right-thinking adult can point to Trump as a role model for our youth? Whenever he spews lies, insults, and polarizing hate speech against fellow Americans, think of its harmful impact on our young people and the way they talk, act, & treat others." (CIA Director John Brennan)
Today's exhibit. Another Trump racism. Trump attacked CNN's Don Lemon and basketball phenom Lebron James, both African Americans, as dumb. Don Lemon responded to Trump, "Who’s the real dummy? A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages?" (Lebron James just launched a new school for at-risk 3rd and 4th graders) (Trump often calls African Americans "dumb.") Michael Jordon commented, "I support L.J.. He's doing an amazing job for his community." Malania Trump commented through her spokeswoman, "It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation and just as she always has, the First Lady encourages everyone to have an open dialogue about issues facing children today."
August 4: More than anyone on earth Trump attacks journalists. His sick encouragement of his voters is having its intended effect, hostility, obscenity and threats of rape and murder against journalists.
August 2: We learned of another Trump bribery. Via Michael Cohen, a major Trump donor (Franklin Haney, who donated $1 million to Trump's election campaign) contracted to pay $10 million upon Trump approval of a $5 billion loan for a nuclear powerplant. The contract was signed in April, a few days before the FBI executed search warrants for documents and recordings of Michael Cohen regarding crimes and fearing destruction of evidence.
August 2: Some reality checks. For 4 years, Trump claimed he could fix health care easily, quickly and cheaply. Instead, he is breaking healthcare and substantially increasing its cost while reducing its quality. For 4 years, Trump promised that everyone would be rich. Hasn't happened. For 4 years, Trump bragged he had a better deal with Iran. Nothing. For 4 years, Trump promised to fix Veterans Affairs. Nothing. Trump's rallies continue to be filled with hate for every American value, particularly truth, the rule of law, US national security and its professionals, and the US Constitution for enabling a free press. Trump continues to adore Vladimir Putin and despise the FBI and Dept. of Justice. The US is losing its leadership role and its morality.
August 2: Trump attacked Mexicans again at his hate rally. "They’re sending, I mentioned words – I won’t even mention them tonight because there’s a lot of young people here — but I mentioned words and everyone thought it was wonderful. Guess what, what I said is peanuts compared to what turns out to be the truth. It’s peanuts." Those words are "rapists and murderers."
August 2: Exasperated by Trump lack of duty, US national security agencies (Directors for National Intelligence, NSA, Homeland Security and FBI) announced that their are going around Trump and organizing, though held back by Trump from full government respone, more efforts to protect US elections. "Our democracy is in the crosshairs. Free and fair elections are the cornerstone of our democracy" (Secretary of Homeland Security). However, it is already too late. Trump has provided NO leadership. And Russia and others have active programs against US elections as well as US electrical and nuclear grids.
A few hours later at a rally of crazies enamored with fake conspiracies, Trump called interference in US elections a hoax for his pro-Russian anti-American supporters.
Congressional 'Republicans', on behalf of Trump, refuse additional support for the expanding attack against the US. They, like Trump, prefer for the US to fail.
Last week, Trump essentially disreguarded national security agencies, allotting them less than 30 minutes to meet. Two weeks ago, Trump disregarded them, favoring Putin's lies about election interference. And even today, the Director of National Intelligence said he still did not know what Trump did with Putin in their private 2+ hour meeting. Trump still disagrees with ALL US national security agencies, siding with and cowering to Putin.
August 2: Trump celebrated as a great success that his buddy, Kim Jong Un, sent 55 boxes to the US allegedly containing remains of 55 soldiers killed in the Korean War in the early 1950s (7,000+ are still missing). Trump maintains that North Korea is no longer a threat (convincing other countries to relax economic sanctions against North Korea).
Trump and his co-conspirators in congress are determined to break the Dept. of Justice, the FBI, the rule of law, US national security agencies, US health care, relationships with allies, all 3 branches of US government, the economy, international trade, respect for fellow citizens, positive futures for non-whites and families while enhancing US national debt, societal divisiveness, Russia, North Korea, Syria and other dictatorships.
August 2: First, Trump promoted the KKK, then Alex Jones (famous for his on-air screaming and mouth foaming and his conspiracy fictions, like Hillary Clinton is running a pedophile group out of a pizza store and the killing of children in Sandy Hook was a hoax). This week, Trump started promoting 'Q', the leader of Trump-loving fake news and the wackiest conspiracy theories ever (eg, JFK Jr. did not die in a plane crash but is alive and leading the Q organization, special counsel Robert Mueller isn’t really investigating the Trump campaign—he’s actually working with Trump to take down a cabal of deep-state plotters and pedophiles. Soon, Q fans believe, Trump will team up with the military to throw top Democrats like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama into Guantanamo Bay.) The more insane the better, and Trump's followers march and scream to Trump's anti-Americanism.
Without lies Trump would have no supporters.
August 1: Trump ordered the US Attorney General to "stop" the Meuller investigation. It has already indicted 32 individuals/organizations and convicted many. Trump's campain manager Paul Manafort's first trial is in its second day. Trump is panic stricken that his lies and collusion are about to be targeted for prosecution.
His entire adult life, Trump obstructed justice.
Trump supporters do not take America seriously. They think America is to be ridiculed for sick entertainment and transformed into a racist pro-Russian state where lies trump truth. Their votes have become vicious Internet blog trolls. Their threats and obscene gestures at Trump rallies is the portrait of America they prefer. This is the nation Trump is creating. Trump grins, as do demagogues everywhere.
July 31: Trump claims that committing a crime is not a crime.
And so, Trump keeps encouraging Russia to attack the US. Today, Facebook found 32 Russian accounts interfering with the 2018 election (290,000 accounts were 'following' these accounts). Last week, Microsoft reported that 3 Democratic legislators were under attack. Enabled by Trump's collusion/treason, we are under attack.
July 31: Thousands have downloaded directions to use printers to create guns (undetectable by counter-measers of regular guns) approved by Trump for criminals and terrorists.
July 30: Trump is proud of attacking journalism, copying from dictators "enemy of the people" and teaching them "fake news". Because of increasing violence against journalists, news outlets have been forced to hire armed guards at their buildings. Eg, last month, 5 journalists were killed and 2 were injured in a"targeted attack" on the Capital Gazette newspaper in Annapolis, Maryland.
Murders of African Americans by police are also rising.
July 30: Collusion with Russia is so much on Trump's 'mind' that he has tweeted about it over 70 times since taking office.
July 30: Trump announced that he has no problem shutting down the US government and that he would meet with Iran with no preconditions anytime anywhere. (Update: Iran said no, US too unreliable and Iran leaders don't need Trump's flattery of being honorable and strong as he calls leaders of North Korea and Russia)
July 30: Trump attacked Obama for campaigning. But, Trump announced he will campaign everyday starting 60 days before the election (now 100 days away). Another lie, another likely boast of a world's record.
July 29: Desperate to protect Vladimir Putin and 20+ spies/spy organizations indicted for 100+ federal crimes, including start of a trial this week against a Russian agent conspiring against the US, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump announced that investigation of Russia's attack against the US "is an illegal scam." (Actually, Mueller is investigating Trump's illegal scam.) Trump also attacked media coverage of his government actions, coverage mandated by historical damage to the US Trump is perpetrating.
US national security is the enemy of the people
July 28: Chronology has meaning. By April 2016, Trump campaign staffer George Popadopoulos learned of Trump campaign collusion with Russia concerning stolen documents from the Hillary Clinton campaign for use by Trump AND paybacks to Russia for their assistance to get Trump elected. In London during May 2016, Popadopoulos told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer about the collusion (Downer informed the FBI to initiate an investigation into Trump July 2016, though never informing the public until May 2017, too late to inform voters November 2016). June 3-8, Russian spies contacted Don Trump Jr, offering dirt on Clinton, Don Jr. replying that "I love it." June 7, 2016 Trump gave a speech promising in a few days release of the Clinton dirt that he was about to receive at a June 9, 2016 meeting of top Trump campaign officials and Russian spies in Trump Tower in a meeting room one floor below Donald Trump's gold office (Trump waited in his office as Don Jr chaired the meeting, calling Trump before and after the meeting) (according to Rudy Giulianni on behalf of Trump, June 7, top campaign officials had a strategy meeting for the June 9 Trump Tower meeting to discuss transactions with Russian spies). Ever the showman and media manipulator, Trump decided to release the information closer to the election, October 2016 so it would maximum adverse effect on the Clinton campaign. July 27, 2016, Trump urged Russia to hack Clinton emails; later that day, Russia responded with a round of fresh cyber attacks. The so-called dirt deflated Clinton's campaign and produced Trump's election at the hands of Trump's treasonous collusion with Russia against the US.
July 27: Trump trumpeted a 4.1% increase in GDP (elevated by hording induced by Trump tariffs), insisting that Obama never achieved over 2%. As usual, a Trump lie. Obama broke this mark 15 times, and got 5.1% Q2 2014, 4.9% Q3 2014, 4.7% Q4 2011 and 4.5% Q4 2009. Obama exceeded 3% 8 times.
'Lie', 'liar and 'lying' finally have a brand name. Trump. He's applying for 'traitor', 'racist' and 'cheat'.
July 27: Trump is doing what he can to stop US interfering with Putin's cyberattacks against US elections, electrical grids, nuclear energy facilities. government agencies and corporations. He pushed out top managers in the US effort and has not authorized any coordinated, high level response. Today, he had a US national security meeting with cabinet secretaries and others, giving them no direction and limiting the meeting to less than 30 minutes, enough time for coffee, donuts and meet and greet. No substance. Weak. (in contrast, Trump spent 2 hours+ privately with Putin to undermine US national security)
July 27: Putin invited puppet Trump home to Moscow. More secret deals.
July 26: Trump said he did not commit the crime of obstruction of justice because his actions are not secret. This is like saying that a bank robber did not rob a bank if someone saw them. And, it evades that Trump also did a lot of obstructing not out in the open.
July 26: A telling headline. "American Racists Look for Allies in Russia."
July 25: Trump caved, fortunately. He raised his defeated flag in his trade war with Europe, freezing future expansion for now, and, after emergency pleadings from congressional 'Republicans' about the political suicide of Trump's invite for Putin to visit the White House and monitor Trump's military parade, pushed Trump to postponing the trip until the Mueller investigation is over.
It turns out that the soccer ball given to Trump by Putin last week on camera was indeed bugged with a listening device.
July 25: U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today delivered the following opening statement at a hearing featuring testimony from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo: "Secretary Pompeo, we are glad to have you here today. We are grateful for your service to our country. I have faith in your leadership, and I appreciate what you are doing to change the culture of the State Department in positive ways. But I want to get straight to the point. You come before a group of senators today who are filled with serious doubts about this White House and its conduct of American foreign policy. There are a number of reasons to be concerned, among them is the lack of information the administration has provided to members of this committee. It’s our hope that you will reduce our level of concern by providing us with clear answers that might help convince us that those at the White House know what they are doing and that – to be candid – you know what they are doing. I can’t say it more forcefully. We really need a clear understanding as to what is going on, what our president is agreeing to, and what our strategy is on a number of issues. Last week, President Trump held a summit with Vladimir Putin, someone who has violated the most fundamental international norms through his efforts to annex Crimea, has interfered with elections, including our own, has supported the brutal Assad regime in Syria, has used chemical weapons to poison a former Russian agent and his daughter in the United Kingdom, has occupied portions of Georgia, continues to violate the INF Treaty, has reportedly hacked U.S. utilities, the list goes on and on, and you know the list. In the face of these hostilities, in the summit’s aftermath, we saw an American president who appeared submissive and deferential. We’ve heard that some agreements were reached, but as of yet have little idea what those might be, even though the president has already extended an invitation to Putin to come to Washington to discuss the ‘implementation’ of these undefined agreements. The president also recently met with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, one of the most ruthless leaders on the planet, who has continued to develop nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles that could hit the United States, has executed his half-brother with poison in Malaysia and reportedly killed his uncle back home, has essentially murdered an American college student, and has enslaved millions of his own people. One in 10 North Koreans are living in slavery today, and one in five children are stunted due to malnutrition. In the face of these realities, the president has called him ‘very talented’ and that ‘he loves his people.’ Really? At the recent NATO summit, the president not only pushed NATO member countries to dedicate more of their budgets to defense – a goal we all share – he went on to berate them, question the very premise of NATO, and in my opinion, used false information to turn public opinion in the United States against the alliance. He even went so far as to cast doubt on the United States’ willingness to enforce Article 5 of the NATO treaty. We want to know if this is real or just another off-the-cuff statement. And the confronting of our partners goes beyond traditional security and extends into the economic space as well. I know you are aware of my strong feelings about the administration’s abuse of its authorities in using Section 232 to implement tariffs in the name of national security. So far, we have zero clarity from the administration as to what the endgame is on the Trump-Pence tariffs, which in reality are a massive tax increase on American consumers and businesses. And now, the administration appears ready to offer welfare to farmers, who would rather have trade than aid. As you know, senators have gone to the White House in groups to discuss these actions, and not a single person that I am aware of has left those meetings with the sense that there’s a coherent strategy driving these policies. The administration tells us, ‘Don’t worry, be patient, there is a strategy here.’ But from where we sit, it appears that in a ‘ready, fire, aim’ fashion, the White House is waking up every morning and making it up as they go. This is the first in a series of hearings we will hold in coming weeks dealing with the troubling dynamic I’ve described – one in which we are antagonizing our friends and placating those who clearly wish us ill. This series will deal specifically with Russia as perhaps the most troubling example of this emerging reality. I hope that in your position you will do all in your power to provide us with the answers we need today and as we move forward in our future hearings."
Later in the hearing, Corker said, "It’s the president that causes people to have concerns. For instance, at the Helsinki conference, to create an equivalence between our intelligence agencies and what Putin is saying – that shocks people. The notion of even exchanging diplomats, sending diplomats over to be interrogated by Putin? To even think about that, to let that be said as an official statement coming out of the White House, this is my opinion –– and I believe it is right –– to purposefully cause the American people to misunderstand about the NATO contributions and to cause them to doubt NATO and to really drive public opinion against NATO. That to me was purposeful, and not unlike what happened right after Charlottesville. It’s the president’s actions that create tremendous distrust in our nation, among our allies. Its palpable."
July 25: Faced with people quoting what he said, King Trump proclaimed, "Just remember, what you are seeing and what you are reading is not what’s happening." His lies and his illicitly altering official statements are what's happening.
Today's example, on audiotape, Trump, like a mobster, tells Michael Cohen "I'll pay with cash" to The National Enquirer via a shell company (Resolution Consultants LLC) specifically set up to hide from the electorate Trump's year-long affair with Karen McDougal (Cohen responded, "no, no,no, " noting that paying by check is a better way to control the situatio) Trump's rewrites that he was saying don't pay with cash and said to pay by check. False. And, a bogus deflection of Trump's affair and illegal cover up.
Thusly, Giuliani admitted Trump was an idiot because he said (falsely) that Trump wanted to pay by check showed that he was not an idiot.
Prosecutors have 99 more tapes from Cohen.
And, Trump conspired with Michael Cohen to pay off multiple other women prior to Election Day in 2016.
June 24: Latest Trump attack against Robert Mueller via Alex Jones, "they let Mueller rape kids in front of people, can you imagine being a monster like that."
July 24: To assist continuity of US national security, top national security officials typically maintain their security clearances so that they can assist new lead officials in national security. To break this continuity on behalf of Russia (and to deflect revelations about his collusion with Putin, obstruction of justice, sexual assault, adultery etc), Trump is terminating clearances of CIA Director John Brennan, National Intelligence Director James Clapper, NSA Director Michael Hayden, National Security Advisor Susan Rice, FBI Director James Comey and FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe (these latter 2 lost their clearances when wrongly fired by Trump to obstruct justice). Putin and Trump have the same enemies. A new form of abuse of power now added to Trump's list (already populated by Muslim ban, stealing babies and children from immigrants, illicit threats of nuclear annihilation of North Korea and Iran, degradation of NATO/Europe/Mexico/Canada, etc).
July 23: Former Republican Governor Christine Todd Whitman. "Trump’s disgraceful performance in Helsinki, Finland, and in the days since is an indication that he is not fit to remain in office. Trump’s turn toward Russia is indefensible. Trump’s avowed respect for the word of a dictator who has spent decades undermining the U.S. and its allies is utterly dangerous. Putin is not our ally. Despite the president’s dismal attempt to change the narrative by explaining that he misspoke in Helsinki, the pattern is clear: As a candidate and as president, he has constantly praised Putin just as he has constantly undercut the core institutions of our democracy — the courts, the media and the FBI. He has a history of discrediting members of his own Cabinet and the agencies they lead. These are not the actions of someone who should be navigating delicate diplomatic discussions and setting foreign policy. Trump has alienated our true allies in Europe and undermined the United States’ reputation as a consistent, reliable moral force for good in the world. He disdains democracies and admires dictatorships. What appears to matter to him is not what leaders represent but how they flatter him. North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and Putin have cracked that code and fan Trump’s ego in a way that respected heads of state do not. Only bold leadership can put the United States back on a path that values freedom and democracy, and truly puts America first."
July 23: Consider the cause of the major conflicts in the world: US vs US national security, US vs FBI, US vs middle class, US vs Iran, US vs North Korea, US vs Islam and Muslims, US vs hispanics, US vs China, US vs NATO, US vs Europe, US vs England, US vs Canada, US vs Mexico, US vs the environment, US vs children, US vs trade, US vs America. Trump, king of conflict.
And, Trump has transformed the Republican Party into the Russian Party. Most 'Republicans' and a third of the country already choose Russia over America.
July 22: Trump announced a hoax that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. Again, his loyalty to Putin shines through. Intelligence agencies, congressional leaders, and outside experts have all concluded that Russia was responsible for a sweeping attack on the US election in 2016 and Trump receives daily the details of Russia's ongoing attacks against the US. Undeniable, but Traitor Trump denies it, encouraged by his secret meetings and phone calls with Putin.
July 22: And Trump so commanded (to distract from his treason with Russia)...
To Iranian President Rouhani: NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE. WE ARE NO LONGER A COUNTRY THAT WILL STAND FOR YOUR DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH. BE CAUTIOUS!
Trump will kill millions over "demented words."
Last year, Trump threatened North Korea with mass extinction with nuclear weapons, salivating to kill millions. Iran gets it turn in Trump's 'nuclear' gun sight. Maybe Trump will have another secret meeting, this time with Rouhani, and then declare Iran is no threat as he did with Kim Jong Un and North Korea.
Trump's August 2017 threat against Kim Jong Un: "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen ... he has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before."
The carnival barker again. Grow up, will you?
July 22: So important a Russian spy, Putin wants Trump to release Maria Butina, indicted and jailed for spy crimes against the US and collusion with the NRA against the US, using sex, lies and guns. Butina is funded by a billionaire associate of Putin.
In 2015, Butina wrote, "It may take the election of a Republican to the White House in 2016 to improve relations between the Russian Federation and the United States. As improbable as it may sound, the Russian bear shares more interests with the Republican elephant than the Democratic donkey."
July 22: A Trump spin-off. An Alabama white supremacist organization is launching a Russian-language page calling on Russia and the American South to become allies.
July 22: Trump attacked the press for not covering his secret 2+ hour meeting with Putin. Um, they and no one else were allowed in the room, not the press, no note takers, no national security experts. The meeting was secret, collusion between Trump and Putin. Putin bulldozed him. And, Trump attacked the press for asking a hard question, did he believe US national security agencies' unanimous conclusion that Putin interfered in the election for Trump. Trump sided with the perpetrator, Putin, and defamed the US as wrong, stupid and foolish. Again, Putin bulldozed him. Trump is weak, scared and anti-American.
July 21: Trump wants Putin in DC to preside over a pompous military parade. Simultaneously, Putin will be continuing his direction of an act of war against the US, cyberattacking elections, electrical grids, nuclear energy plants, banks and companies and pushing pro-Rushian messages to Americans via Twitter and Facebook. Trump has disallowed any organized effort against Putin's war. Trump will be grinning ear to ear to be in the presence of his partner against the US. We get to watch the creation of the US/USR, the Union of Soviet/US Republics. The US gets its turn at fascism and control by a foreign adversary.
July 21: Trump, because he and his family have been rewarded with hundreds of millions of dollars by China, is also opening the door against the US for China, which is developing its avenues of power licit and illicit, public and private, economic and military, to undermine the US. Trump's insane trade war is fueling China's goal. The goal of China's influence operations around the world is to replace the United States as the world's leading superpower, the CIA's Michael Collins said. "At the end of the day they want every country around the world, when it's deciding its interests on policy issues, to first and foremost side with China and not the United States. It sets up a competition with us and what we stand behind far more significantly by any extreme than what the Russians could put forward."
Trump is elevating Russia and degrading US allies and the US itself. Trump's dark entertainment has convinced his followers to go along. Trump is the biggest threat to the US as he enables China and Russia against the US while degrading relationships with NATO, England and Europe.
July 20: Texas Republican Rep. Will Hurd and former undercover CIA agent. "The president's failure to defend the United States intelligence community's unanimous conclusions of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and condemn Russian covert counterinfluence campaigns and his standing idle on the world stage while a Russian dictator spouted lies confused many but should concern all Americans. By playing into Vladimir Putin's hands, the leader of the free world actively participated in a Russian disinformation campaign that legitimized Russian denial and weakened the credibility of the United States to both our friends and foes abroad. Over the course of my career as an undercover officer in the C.I.A., I saw Russian intelligence manipulate many people. I never thought I would see the day when an American president would be one of them. Without action, we risk losing further credibility in international negotiations with both our friends and foes on critical trade deals, military alliances and nuclear arms."
July 20: To change the news from Trump's treason and to harm Michael Cohen's defense against criminal charges, Trump lawyer Rudy Giulliani announced today that Trump and Michael Cohen discussed during September 2016 a hush money payment to a Playboy model, specifically reimbursing The National Enquirer for hiding the story to protect Trump's election prospects. Trump and Cohen worked to trick the model into thinking she was negotiating a hush agreement with The National Enquirer. Guiliani told the New York Times that during the recorded conversation, Trump told Cohen to make the payment in the form of a check to The National Enquirer. Playboy model Karen McDougal began a nearly yearlong affair with Trump in 2006, shortly after Trump’s wife, Melania, gave birth to their son Barron. August 2016, McDougal was paid by The National Enquirer $150,000 and a job offer that never materialized during the final months of the presidential campaign. We already know that Trump paid porn star Stormy Daniels $130,000 to silence her a few weeks before the election.
FBI Director James Comey famously said, Lordy, I hope there are tapes." Indeed, there are tapes.
Alexander Hamilton, Federalist Paper, March 14, 1788. "Nothing was more to be desired than that every practicable obstacle should be opposed to cabal, intrigue, and corruption. These most deadly adversaries of republican government might naturally have been expected to make their approaches from more than one quarter, but chiefly from the desire in foreign powers to gain an improper ascendant in our councils. How could they better gratify this, than by raising a creature of their own to the chief magistracy of the Union?" 228 years later, Putin raised his Trump creature to be the greatest threat of national security.
July 19: The Helsinki disaster went so well in Trump's view that Trump invited Putin to come to the White House during the election season this fall. Why cyberattack only from Russia, Putin will be able to do it from the White House. Trump wants more secret collusions against the US without the pain of traveling.
Director Of National Intelligence surprised
Dan Coates still does not know what Trump and Putin discussed secretly for 2+ hours in Helsinki 3 days ago
Spycraft 101: The number one goal of the first meeting is to get a second meeting.
If anyone was giving the same excuses to their spouse the other spouse would know they were having an affair.
There is always a reason behind lying.
July 19: Putin announce he made many useful agreements with Trump during their secret 2+ hours meeting in Helsinki. No US official in the world knows what they are. And, Russia conducted a range of new nuclear weapons tests, one called Invincible.
The day after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Trump had a secret meeting with Russian spies in the Oval Office to hand over classified information with them. Undoubtedly, Trump also handed over classified information to Putin in their secret meeting in Helsinki.
The founders of the United States gave future Presidents just one grave set of instructions, enshrined in Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution. Before assuming the office, the President-elect must swear to “preserve, protect and defend” the Constitution and “faithfully” execute the duties of the office. A traitor, Trump invites Putin's war against America and will not authorize preservation, protection or defense. Trump calls the US foolish and stupid and says Putin is strong and powerful. Trump violates his oath and the Constitution FOR Putin.
July 18: Weeks before his January 2017 inauguration, Trump was shown definitive, strong and powerful evidence by the highest level national security officials that Putin directed election interference for Trump. Every day since inauguration, Trump has received definitive evidence proving Putin's interference is ongoing and ramping up. He has been unable to ever not lie about Putin, and sadly has convinced most 'Republicans' that there was and is no Putin interference, sending them into alternate reality with fake facts. For them, Trump lies trump truth.
According to Steven Hall, the former head of Russian operations at the CIA in Moscow, "From a counterintelligence perspective, something is going on behind the scenes. Before Helsinki I was less sure; post Helsinki, I feel sick. According to former Chief of Staff/CIA Director/DOD Director Leon Panetta, "There's no question that there is something here that intimidates the president of the United States. The way he behaves, there's a clear signal that the Russians have something on him." Trump's Director of National Intelligence warned everyone 3 days before the Helsinki 'summit', "These actions are persistent, they're pervasive and they are meant to undermine America's democracy on a daily basis, regardless of whether it is election time or not. The warning signs are there. The system is blinking. And it is why I believe we are at a critical point." Today, Trump's FBI Director Christopher Wray said, "The intelligence community's assessment has not changed, my view has not changed -- which is that Russia attempted to interfere [in the past election] and continues to engage in malign influence operations to this day." Trump is a Putin puppet and asset, a traitor.
We know that Trump is not capable of telling the truth. We know that Putin tape recorded for future blackmail against Trump the secret 2 hour 10 meeting in Helsinki between Putin and his puppet Trump. And, Putin can say anything about this meeting, eg his announcement yesterday that a military deal was reached with Trump no one in the US knows about, and if Trump tries to balk, Putin will remind him with an audiotape of something egregious or treasonous Trump said during that meeting.
July 2018: Forced by threatened mass resignation, Trump finally announced what the world has known for 2 years, that Russia interfered with the 2016 election and Putin is responsible as he is responsible for what happens in the US (Trump denied this just 2 days ago in Helsinki; and, Putin's interference happened IN the US while colluding with Trump). But, Trump says they are not still targeting the US and will not say that Putin lied about the 2016 interference. And, Trump still says that investigation of this interference is a witch hunt and those who observed Russia's interference were low life (eg, FBI Director James Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, DNI Director James Clapper; note: the current directors in these positions, all appointed by Trump, agree and thus must also be low life). He does not believe the intelligence data showed to him daily proving Russia did interfere, still is interfering with US elections and ramping up to derail the November 2018 elections. He prefers lies from Putin, or perhaps instructed by Putin to spread.
Trump is trying to turn the US into Russia, and fake Republicans (ie, most elected 'Republicans') are helping.
July 18: Trump announced that he is open to Putin's request to hand over a US Ambassador to Russia (and others), obviously a US citizen and high US official, for interrogation almost certain torture and assassination. It's the only specific matter Trump has released regarding his secret 2 hour 10 minute meeting with Putin in Helsinki. Traitor Trump.
Trump has informed world leaders and US government officials that if Putin wants you then Trump will capture you and send you to Russia for torture and death.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert called the concept "absolutely absurd." "The fact that they want to question 11 American citizens, and the assertions that the Russian government is making about those American citizens — we do not stand by those assertions," Nauert said.Trump says Putin not targeting US
July 18: Trump announced, again, that Putin/Russia is no longer targeting the US. The threat from Putin/Russia is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FALSE. JUST MORE COLLUSION WITH PUTIN AGAINST THE US. CONTINUED VIOLATION OF OATH OF OFFICE AND US CONSTITUTION. All US national intelligence agencies have testified under oath that Putin/Russia is targeting the US and the Director of National Intelligence just said that Putin/Russia is ramping up against the US elections in November. Votes are getting worthless under Trump.
"We are doing very well. We are doing very well. And, we are doing very well. There has never been a president as tough on Russia than I am." (Trump, about noon today)
Contrary to his lie yesterday, confirmed again....Trump has no trust in US national intelligence. His allegience is to Putin, not the US.
In fact, Russia is actively attacking the entire infrastructure of the US (The National Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Center)
This is Putin-Trump collusion in real time.
Update: To Trump, no means yes. 3 hours ago, when asked by a female reporter if Putin/Russia was still a threat, Trump said "no."Even Fox News reported Trump's "no." Now, he says "yes." This is like when he sexually assaulted 3 dozen women. When they said no, he determined that their no meant yes.
July 18: In addition to exonerating the president from criminal prosecution, Trump appointed a new Supreme Court Justice because he "will put a nail in" the special counsel Supreme Court ruling 3 decades ago that upheld the the special counselc constitutionality, ie terminate Robert Mueller's investigation and indictments. Trump will defend Putin at all costs.
July 18: Trump announced that he will violate the NATO treaty and NOT defend Montenegro (country population about size of Louisville, KY) because the country is prosecuting pro-Russian conspirators attempting to take over Montenegro for Putin. Trump also said that Montenegro will instigate WWIII.
The only time in 70 years that NATO invoked Article 5 to defend one of its members is FOR THE US in response to the 9/11/2001 attack by Osama Bin Laden.
July 18: The father of three children killed in 2014 when Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down by Russia tore into Trump for his failure to hold Putin accountable. That passenger flight MH17 was shot out of the sky and 298 innocent people were murdered is an irrefutable fact. That the plane was hit by a Russian missile has been proven to be an irrefutable fact. That the man whose arse you’ve just been kissing did this, and continues to lie about it, is an irrefutable fact." Trump's response...Putin is strong and powerful and deserves admiration more than the US.
Trump said to the world that Americans are foolish and stupid. He is referring to his supporters who need his lies, his telling them how smart they are, his racism, his promotion of murdering non-whites, his stealing thousands of children from their parent, his Muslim ban, his hate, his pretense, his chaos, his attack of the FBI, his preference for dictators who murder journalists and political rivals, his boasts of his serial sexual assault and wanting to date his daughter because of her body, his violation of the Constitution and law, his obstruction of justice, his embrace of dictators and Putin, his degradation of NATO, Europe, Canada and Mexico, his trade wars, his promotion of police murdering African Americans, his destruction of the Republican Party, his tax breaks for the super rich, his ruin of health care, his explosion of the national debt to weaken America and his treason. They find The Trump Show makes them comfortable with bigotry and decline of America.
Where are Reagan Republicans? Please come back.
The Putin-Trump 'summit'. The master and the apprentice. History was made. History will remember.
July 17: Russian TV about Trump. "It's is very bizarre, you can't bash your own country like that - especially when you're the President. When Trump says our relations are bad because of American foolishness and stupidity, he really smells like an agent of the Kremlin." Indeed he is. On behalf of Putin, who Trump calls "extremely strong and powerful" Trump says the US is "foolish and stupid." "I have President Putin," Trump said in Helsinki. We certainly know that Putin has Trump.
July 17: Given the greenlight by Trump, Putin is ramping up operations against the US. Even Trump's Director of National Security says that the red light is blinking. It is happening to us again. The 'summit' in Helsinki was for Trump to approve Putin's dirty work, against which Trump will do nothing to stop and thus enable. Trump's treason is very inviting for Putin to exploit.
Trump is openly colluding with, enabling and inviting Putin's cyberwar against the US. Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
July 17: In vein, to expand his lie conspiracy and after 24 hours of emergency meetings in the White House, Trump tried to fix his announcements yesterday with Putin. Prompted by international, congressional and Fox News condemnation of his Putin summit, Trump's overnight conversion to support US national security agencies is fake news Trump style (unbelievably, after a year and a half in office). Just as Trump made his bogus announcement, blaming his ommission of the word 'not' from his 45 minute press conference for the world's alleged misunderstanding what he said, the lights went out, though he blamed US national intelligence agencies (notably, inserting that word negates his position today, that others beyond Russia are involved in election interference; previously, Trump blamed China and a 400 fat man hacking from his bed). And, Trump continues to insist that US national intelligence agencies are lying. According to Trump, without evidence or support, claimed that others are involved in election interference. FALSE. Rather, this is yet another obstruction of justice. Trump still believes Putin, who also contradicts US national security agencies.
Trump's 'not word' excuse does not explain his charge with Putin at his side and during interviews since that US national security agencies, DOJ/FBI, Robert Mueller and Congress are perpetrating a witch hunt.
July 17: Trump and his co-conspirators against the US still claim that Putin did nothing to help Trump win the election. Hey guys, you have a problem. Putin admitted yesterday, "yes, I did," ordering his officials to do so....just as outlined in dozens of indictments and 100+ criminal charges against them. Trump has been briefed daily for 2 years about Putin's intent.
July 17: GOP Governor Christine Todd Whitman: "Mr President, you should be ashamed. “To deny your own country and government in favor of a foreign leader whose country has, for decades, tried to undermine the United States is irrational and dangerous. Please step down, you are not fit to lead this great nation."
July 17: Trump supporter KKK Grand Wizard David Duke about the Trump-Putin 'summit': "What happened in Helsinki is Historic. In my lifetime I have never seen such a courageous attack on the whole of the ZOG, the Zionist Occupied Government of the United States and the Zionist Occupied Media!"
July 17: Based on his open collusion with Putin against the US Trump today says that US-Russia relations are closer than ever. Well, of course they are. Problem is though that Americans, US national security, NATO, Europe and other US allies have been degraded while Russia has been elevated.
It is amazing to watch politicians side with Russia against the US, argueing that Putin had good cause to attack the US because of his problems with Hillary Clinton.
When will Putin release the 'pee tape', in which Trump is shown urinating on prostitutes on the bed slepped in by Barrack Obama?
Putin proved what the world knows. Trump is weak. Trump proved again that he is America's biggest enemy.
While Reagan won the Cold War for America, NATO and Europe, Trump lost it.
Trump has transformed Republicans into enemies of America. Please recant for the sake of America.
Who is the bigger liar, Trump or Putin? What anti-American conspiracy did Trump and Putin devise in their 2 hour 10 minute secret meeting, especially in view of the massive damage presented during their 45-minute press conference? What classified information did Trump hand over to Putin?
Trump's allegience is to Putin, not to the US. Trump degraded Office of the President and the US and its allies.
July 16: Trump horrified the world. Champagne for Putin. All a reminder that Trump, Putin's patsy and spokesman, was elected illegitimately and is perpetrating treason. Trump exonerated Putin's attacks on NATO, Europe and the US. Putin owns Trump.
Putin said that Russia never interfered in a US election and never will, although also said that he wanted Trump to win the election AND he directed his officials to help Trump win. Putin preposterously offered more collusion: that Mueller could head a commission – per a 1999 treaty to cooperate in criminal cases – to investigate the indicted Russians as long as US allows Russia to prosecute US agents acting illegally in Russia. Eg, Mr. Bill Browder, under threat of assassination by Putin, took over $1 billion from Russia tax free and gave over $400 million to Hillary Clinton (if true, this would represent 70% of Clinton's campaign funding; in fact, Browder never gave Clinton even a cent...just anoher Trump-stye lie by Putin). Trump said the US is foolish and said that Putin is extremely strong and powerful. Trump said the election interference (that got him elected) probe in the US (Mueller, Congress) is a disaster for the US and is ridiculous and is an attempt by Democrats to explain their loss. Trump repeated several times that there was "no collusion." Trump also attacked the media, Peter Strzok and Democrats. Trump said he saw no reason why Russia should be seen as interfering in the election. (Trump sides with Putin's later answer that Mueller's indictments were forgeries of facts.)
It was a disgraceful and outrageous performance by Trump on the world stage. He was small and vindictive. He is compromised for Putin (to further scare Trump, Putin even raised the infamous 'pee tape', wherein Trump apparently urinated on prostitutes while visiting Russia). He trusts Putin, not the unanimous conclusion of all US national intelligence agencies and Senate Intelligence Committee. He sees no reason why it could have been Russia who interfered with the election, rather it had something to do with DNC computer server, Hillary Clinton emails and FBI's chief of counterintelligence Peter Strzok.
Putin won the 2016 US election and won the Helsinki summit. Trump degraded the US and realizing that he was elected illigitimately desperately reaches for the impossible – proof that he won fairly.
Over and over, Trump sided with Putin and against the US. Trump is a traitor. Trump fears Putin.
Former CIA Director John Brennan said, "Donald Trump’s press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of “high crimes & misdemeanors.” It was nothing short of treasonous. Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin. Republican Patriots: Where are you???"
Senator Jeff Flake. "I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression. This is shameful."
RNC Chair Michael Steele. "That's how a press conference sounds when an Asset stands next to his Handler."
Senator John McCain. "Today’s press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant."
Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas). "There is nothing about agreeing with a thug like Putin that puts America First. I've seen Russian intelligence manipulate many people over my professional career and I never would have thought that the US President would become one of the ones getting played by old KGB hands."
Senator Ben Sasse. "The problem that needed to be named today was Vladimir Putin. Instead, our president decided to advance a fake moral equivalency that plays right into ... Vladimir Putin's bloody hands. Everyone in this body should be disgusted by what happened in Helsinki. It was a terrible day for the American brand, for the American people and our allies."
FBI Director James Comey. "This was the day an American president stood on foreign soil next to a murderous lying thug and refused to back his own country. Patriots need to stand up and reject the behavior of this president."
Dictionary.com issued. "Patriot: A person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion. Traitor: A person who commits treason by betraying his or her country."
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coates. "The role of the Intelligence Community is to provide the best information and fact-based assessments possible for the President and policymakers. We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 20116 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security." A couple days ago, Coates warned that Russia's interference is again on the rise, emergency status.
John Roberts, Fox News. "The early indications are that this is going to cost the president dearly politically. Now, he is taking it on the chin, not just from Democrats but Republicans as well, and from literally every state across the nation. There is a growing consensus across the land that tonight the president threw the United States under the bus."
Lt. Col. Ralph Peters. "We have a president who is betraying us. The American people cannot have the least faith in our president. I am convinced that Donald Trump is a slave of Vladimir Putin. Trump is actively betraying our country. (Trump's summit with Putin) was indeed a sign of treason."
Thomas Friedman. "There is overwhelming evidence that our president, for the first time in our history, is deliberately or through gross negligence or because of his own twisted personality engaged in treasonous behavior — behavior that violates his oath of office to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” Trump vacated that oath today, and Republicans can no longer run and hide from that fact. Such behavior by an American president is so perverse, so contrary to American interests and values, that it leads to only one conclusion: Donald Trump is either an asset of Russian intelligence or really enjoys playing one on TV."
European envoys offered assessments that ranged from "frightening" and "devastating" to "an abomination," with some raising the need to create new strategies to deal with the US as a now less-than-reliable ally, perhaps even an adversary.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. "Magnificent, better than super."
A huge question remains. What did Trump give Putin during their 2 hour 10 minute private meeting? Putin closed the press conference smugly giving Trump a soccer ball (his metaphor for a Trojan Horse, possibly containing a listening device), saying "the ball is in your court" to extend Putin's cover up, opening yet another collusion between Trump and Putin.
Update: The DOJ indicted another Russian spy, adding to the dozens already indicted and colluding with Americans against the US (treason). A Russian woman living in D.C. was charged for conspiring for the Russian government by establishing relationships and infiltrating organizations that have influence in U.S. politics (funneling money to the NRA for Trump; in response, Trump terminated the duty of the NRA to report its donors to the IRS).
Putin leads his Trump puppet in Helsinki
Both on same side against the US, the free press and US allies
Putin indoctrinated Trump for 2 hours 10 minutes in a private meeting, no other officials present. According to CIA Director John Brennan, " Why did Trump meet 1 on 1 with Putin? What might he be hiding from Bolton, Pompeo, Kelly, & the American public? How will Putin use whatever Trump could be hiding to advantage Russia & hurt America? Trump’s total lack of credibility renders spurious whatever explanation he gives."
July 16: Putin greeted Trump. “Distinguished president, I am delighted to be able to meet you here in Finland. We have been in continual contact by telephone since the last time, and obviously the time has come to have a business-like conversation because there is so much happening in the world that we need to talk about.”
July 16: Forced to wait from Putin's intentional 45-minute late arrival (mind games), Trump rolled out his Blame America First apology again blaming the US for Russia's bad acts, eg nuclear threat, threatening Europe, exploding airlines in the air, killing journalists and political adversaries, poisonings in England, annexing Crimea, invading Ukraine, sponsoring Syria's Assad to murder hundreds of thousands and exile millions of Syria's citizens, funding North Korea and Iran and attacking the USdirectly with computer hacking/theft and marketing to get Trump elected (an attack that is ongoing and "blinking red" again according to Trump's Director of National Security). Alligned with Putin against the US, Trump says that ongoing attack against the US is fake news and a witch hunt.
Just as he did for Kim Jong Un, Trump is determined to legitimize Putin and degrade the US. Trump says that their muderous history is simply misunderstood and a product of the US.
Representing Putin against the US, Trump tweeted today, "Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!" Russia's foreign minister agreed. Trump is attacking his own Dept. of Justice for indicting dozens of Russian spies, laws of the US and the Constitution of the US on behalf of Putin. Trump announced that the US is stupid and foolish!
A Finnish newspaper installed 300 bilboards saying to Trump and Putin, "Mr. President, Welcome to the land of free press" and "Trump calls media enemy of the people."
July 15: In final prep to meet with Putin to plan new ways to degrade the US, Trump announced that the press is the enemy of the people. Yet another, and recurring, violation of the US Constitution, which underscores the importance of a free press.
July 15: Foreign direct investment in the United States dropped 32 percent, or $120 billion, in 2017 as compared to the year before. But, Trump has made millions charging US, European and Asian taxpayers to fund his business infomercials.
July 15: Although Europe faught with the US in World War 1, World War 2, Afghanistan Iraq, loosing tens of thousands of its citizens to protect the US, Trump annouced that Europe (like Canada) is an enemy of the US. Europe will not fall for Trump's extortion.
For Trump, US allies are enemies and pose a threat to the US. Dictatorships like Russia and North Korea are our friends pose no threat to the US.
July 14: "The indictments of the 12 Russian military officers who engaged in a coordinated attack on the United States to try to make their preferred candidate our president are a vital reminder that the Mueller investigation cannot and must not be seen as a political issue.The fact that Friday we also heard from our Director of National Intelligence, a conservative GOP former senator from Indiana, that the cyber offensive of which the GRU, Russian military intelligence, attacks were part is ongoing and that "we are at a critical point" in which "the warning signs are there" is also salient. That the president is abetted in his aid for the Russians — again, in the midst of this ongoing attack — by the leadership of the Republican Party makes the situation all the more extraordinary and dangerous. As they seek to undermine the investigation, they serve Russia as directly as if they were officers of the GRU. Some now reportedly seek to impeach Rosenstein on trumped up charges. To attack one of the leaders of our national defense as we are being attacked and to do so to benefit our foreign adversary is textbook treason. That is strong language. But consider this: If we updated our definitions of war to include cyberwar, then aiding a foreign power engaged in such a war against us would certainly meet the Constitutional definition: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort." (David Rothkopf is the CEO and Editor of Foreign Policy)
Rothkopf also wrote, "Bernie Madoff must be sitting in prison thinking to himself, “Schmuck, that’s how it is done!” That’s because the con just pulled off by Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and very nearly every Republican on Capitol Hill would have every great fraudster in American history from Ponzi to that tubby guy behind the Backstreet Boys marveling at its scope, boldness, and brazen criminality. While Trump was on the campaign trail stirring up the fears and anger of a white male base against brown people, black people, immigrants, and women, he was colluding… yes, colluding… with the richest and most powerful white men to hurt these guys like no “other” could. With McConnell and Ryan and their merry band of thieves they engineered a massive wealth transfer with their tax heist that will shift billions to the richest Americans and pay for it with cutting programs and limiting comparable benefits to the poor. As is well-known, 83 percent of the benefits of the current tax bill go to the 1 percent, but that is just the start of this pernicious plan’s pain for everyone else. While there are modest savings for average families, they go away within a decade, while the benefits for corporations and the richest Americans were made permanent."
"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." (Abraham Lincoln) Trump shows us how this can happen.
July 13: Friday the 13th is a bad day for Trump.
A few days ago, the US DOJ officially informed Trump what DOJ made public today. Nevertheless, to protect Putin, Trump afterwards called 2016 Putin interference in the election and its criminal investigation fake news and a witch hunt. FALSE.
Today, DOJ announced indictments of 12 Putin military spies who created US election interference, attacking computers of the Democratic National Committee, the Clinton campaign and state elections on behalf of Trump and against Clinton. Putin worked through DC Leaks, Gucifer 2.0, Facebook accounts and an un-named intermediary (probably Wikileaks, which Trump said he loved dozens of times during the campaign), which colluded with Americans un-named in the indictment (they were part of Trump's campaign staff/consultants). Some of the hacking directly responded to Trump's public request of Putin to hack into Clinton computers (eg, attempted hacking into Clinton email accounts began AFTER Trump's request from Putin).
Next Monday, Trump will negotiate further privately with Putin against the US.
No witch hunt. No fake news. It was/is acts of war from Russia against the US to help Trump and at the request of Trump. Trump is doing nothing to stop Putin's ongoing attacks. It is Trump treason with Putin against the US. And even more proof of the corruption in the US Congress and likely future corruption in the US Supreme Court in collusion with Trump against the US.
No credible professional would associate themselves with Trump, most notably Trump's recent pick for the US Supreme Court. Decency and patriotism would compel him to decline.
Update: Trump blames Obama for Trump's treasonous collusion. Trump says what Obama began to learn about September 2016 should have caused Obama to retroactively terminate. According to Trump, since no one stopped his treason it is ok. And, grand witches Trump and Putin synchronized their fake excuses, calling (to date) 191 criminal charges, indictements of 32 individuals and 3 businesses, 6 convictions, 2 in jail, and 2 upcoming trials for Trump's campaign manager fake news and a witch hunt.
July 13: Novartis Pharmaceuticals bribed Trump with millions of dollars, paid through Michael Cohen.
July 13: Trump announced that immigration is bad for the world and especially bad for the US. (virtually everyone in the US is an immigrant or descendant of an immigrant, virtually everyone takes pride in their heritage from England, France, Germany, China, Japan, Russia and the range of African, Asian, Arab, South/North American and European countries...every country on earth has descendants living in the US)
History will show that the United States under Trump induced devaluation of world peace, NATO, expanded racism, chaos, economic disasters, religious hysteria and decreased quality of life BUT elevate Russia, China and North Korea.
July 12: Russian TV reported that Trump did more to destroy NATO than Russia ever could.
During the election campaign, Trump promised us "the best." What we got is the opposite. Most top officials of his administration have left in shame, been indicted or have pleaded guilty of serious crimes, including conspiracy against the US.
July 12: While Russia directly attacked the US, and still is, and while all US national security agencies and the Senate Intelligence Committee agree, Trump announced at the NATO meeting in Brussels today that he will do nothing about it...in direct violation of his oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the US. All US national intelligence agencies have testified under oath that has authorized NO fight against Russia's attacks against the US. On the contrary, Trump repeatedly praises Vladimir Putin, Trump's business partner, mentor and benefactor. And, Trump will collude with Putin next Monday in Helsinki with all witnesses barred from the Trump-Putin secret meeting to continue their collusion against the US.
July 12: It turns out there is a reason Trump and his treasonous collaborators in Congress are attacking so viciously Peter Strzok and obstructing justice. He was FBI's chief of its counterespionage section, ie he directed investigation and prosecution of spies against the US, including Russian spies colluding with Trump to win the election initially reported to the US by British national intelligence, and received numerous commendations for being so successful. It turns out that Trump has been colluding with Russia/Soviet Union for decades, and still is.
Strzok's attorney noted June 14, "(Strzok's) political conviction that a Trump presidency would be disastrous for American national security is not based on bias, it was based on information that was available to him. Not every FBI investigation is of equal importance to US national security. There is simply no equivalence between an investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, a relatively commonplace occurrence in the FBI's and credible evidence suggesting that the presidential campaign of a major party candidate was actively colluding with a hostile foreign power in a way that could undermine the integrity of an American Presidential election. To require senior national security officials to profess fealty to this false equivalence is both short-sighted and dangerous."
Today, Strzok testified before Congress. A couple weeks ago, congressional staff interviewed Strzok for 11 hours. Strzok testified, "Let me be clear, unequivocally and under oath: not once in my 26 years of defending my nation did my personal opinions impact any official action I took. I have the utmost respect for Congress’s oversight role, but I truly believe that today’s hearing is just another victory notch in Putin’s belt and another milestone in our enemies’ campaign to tear America apart." Trump will say, who cares. We thrive on lies, not truth like what you offer. And, Trump has convinced his voters and congressional 'Republicans' to hate the FBI. [Regarding today's hearing, Trump's 'Republicans' corroded Congress and the United States to defend Trump's collusion with Putin's attack on the US. They considered Strzok saying 'fuck' in personal text message a bigger threat to the US than Russian interference in the election for Trump.]
Most notably, Strzok testified, "The information we had which was alleging a Russian offer of assistance to a member of the Trump campaign was of extraordinary significance. It was credible. It was from an extraordinarily sensitive and credible source."
July 11: This is truly sick. Trump installed a Russian agent mole into the Dept. of Justice to be in charge of the DOJ criminal division. This agent has never prosecuted a case but will be in charge of 600 prosecutors. And, should Trump fire Rod Rosenstein, Russia's agent will take over the Mueller investigation. A little gift from Trump to his boss Putin for their private no-witnesses meeting next Monday.
July 11: Qualifying as a weapon of mass destruction, asbestos kills 100,000+ annually, 15,000+ annually in the US alone. So it is fitting that a Russian mining company stamps Trump seals on its asbestos shipments. (traditional chemical warfare kills less than 1,000/year)
July 11: In 1949, NATO was created, essentially, to defend the US against the Soviet Union, now Russia, using Europe as the barrier. NATO was the centerpiece of US defense strategy. Trump and Putin, want NATO (and Europe) destroyed on behalf of Russia, and to break Trump's oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the US.
July 10: Trump announced that his easiest meeting over the next week will be with Vladimir Putin. His meetings with England's Prime Minister and NATO (ie, US allies) will be difficult.
July 9: Trump's pick for Supreme Court Justice was chosen by a lobbyist, adding to his fundamental illegitimacy (illegitimately elected, Trump's pick is also illegitimate). The likely new Justice should be ashamed accepting the appointment. Yet another example of Russia's degradation of the US via Trump.
Explaining Trump's nominee, Brett Kavanough: he supports expanded presidential power and that the president cannot be indicted for crimes or obstruct justice. Eg, according to this Supreme Court Justice nominee, it would be legal for the president to take an assault weapon from the White House arsenal, go out to Lafayette Park and murder dozens, even hundreds, of American citizens, again and again without restraint. No investigation. No charges, no trial, no conviction, no grand jury, no testimony under oath, no accountability for any crimes. No litigation, criminal or civil, against the president. IE, Trump should not be subject to Mueller's investigation authorized by the DOJ and federal courts, not subject to testimony, not subject of a report or indictment. Of course, Kavanough thought otherwise regarding President Bill Clinton, leading the pack against Clinton, demanding grand jury testimony and charges of obstruction of justice.
July 9: In one week, Trump will meet with Vladimir Putin one on one. No advisors. No protections. No record. More collusion. More degradation of the US. More breakdown of NATO and democracy on behalf of Russia.
"Will Trump Be Meeting With His Counterpart — Or His Handler? In 2015, Western European intelligence agencies began picking up evidence of communications between the Russian government and people in Donald Trump’s orbit. In April 2016, one of the Baltic states shared with then–CIA director John Brennan an audio recording of Russians discussing funneling money to the Trump campaign. In the summer of 2016, Robert Hannigan, head of the U.K. intelligence agency GCHQ, flew to Washington to brief Brennan on intercepted communications between the Trump campaign and Russia. The Russia scandal began far earlier than conventionally understood and ended later — indeed, is still happening. As Trump arranges to meet face-to-face and privately with Vladimir Putin later this month, the collusion between the two men metastasizing from a dark accusation into an open alliance...the summit is less a negotiation between two heads of state than a meeting between a Russian-intelligence asset and his handler. In 1986, Soviet ambassador Yuri Dubinin met Trump in New York, flattered him with praise for his building exploits, and invited him to discuss a building in Moscow. Trump visited Moscow in July 1987. He stayed at the National Hotel, in the Lenin Suite, which certainly would have been bugged. Trump returned from Moscow fired up with political ambition. He began the first of a long series of presidential flirtations, which included a flashy trip to New Hampshire. Two months after his Moscow visit, Trump spent almost $100,000 on a series of full-page newspaper ads that published a political manifesto. “An open letter from Donald J. Trump on why America should stop paying to defend countries that can afford to defend themselves,” as Trump labeled it, launched angry populist charges against the allies that benefited from the umbrella of American military protection. “Why are these nations not paying the United States for the human lives and billions of dollars we are losing to protect their interests?” Russian intelligence gains influence in foreign countries by operating subtly and patiently. It exerts different gradations of leverage over different kinds of people, and uses a basic tool kit of blackmail that involves the exploitation of greed, stupidity, ego, and sexual appetite. All of which are traits Trump has in abundance. It is not difficult to imagine that Russia quickly had something on Trump, from either exploits during his 1987 visit or any subsequent embarrassing behavior KGB assets might have uncovered. But the other leverage Russia enjoyed over Trump for at least 15 years is indisputable — in fact, his family has admitted to it multiple times. After a series of financial reversals and his brazen abuse of bankruptcy laws, Trump found it impossible to borrow from American banks and grew heavily reliant on unconventional sources of capital. Russian cash proved his salvation. From 2003 to 2017, people from the former USSR made 86 all-cash purchases — a red flag of potential money laundering — of Trump properties, totaling $109 million. In 2010, the private-wealth division of Deutsche Bank also loaned him hundreds of millions of dollars during the same period it was laundering billions in Russian money. “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets,” said Donald Jr. in 2008. “We don’t rely on American banks. We have all the funding we need out of Russia,” boasted Eric Trump in 2014." (Jonathan Chait, The New Yorker)
Collusion with Russia exploded during the campaign, with campaign executives meeting and coordinating often with Russian spies. Next week, Trump will meet PRIVATELY with his benefactor, mentor and handler, Vladimir Putin, the only person in the world that Trump invariably praises and believes. Bribery and blackmail are powerful inducements.
Trump has an easy cost-free way to reduce – by the largest margins in world history – terrorism and the crime caused by immigrants, Muslims and African Americans...STOP LYING, STOP EXAGURATING, STOP BLAMING THEM FOR CRIMES THEY DID NOT DO OR NEVER HAPPENED.
Trump supporters don't have a problem with Trump's selling of racism because they like him for saying that non-whites are rapists, criminals, stupid, low IQ, terrorists and live in shit hole countries. He is one of us they say, saying what we think.
Extreme SHAME on Trump and his new Republicans. They hate families, non-whites, Christianity, real Republicans and American values. They hate America, instead paying homage to lies and immorality.
"You are to governance & politics what Bernie Madoff was to the stock market & investment advice. The two of you share a remarkably unethical ability to deceive & manipulate others, building Ponzi schemes to aggrandize yourselves. Truth & justice ultimately caught up with Bernie." (CIA Director John Brennan)
Trump is a bigoted poor-taste condescending comic with a government and media gestapo, making things up to entertain his bigoted audience and sway them away from America and toward fascism.
July: 4: CIA Director John Brennan reminded us of the antithesis of Trump. As we mark the 242nd year of our great Nation’s birth, let us remember the words of our 1st President, George Washington: “The bosom of America is open to receive not only the opulent and respectable Stranger, but the oppressed and persecuted of all Nations and Religions.” Washington's view produced America. Trump's view would have produced forsaken psychotic dystopia.
America's Biggest Enemy
Harley Davidson was founded in 1903. But, Trump wants to kill the company and replace it with a foreign company. Why? Because Trump's tariffs forced Harley to manufacture its motorcycles outside the US for those sold outside the US. Like everything Trump says is a lie, Trump claimed that Harley lost sales in 2017 for its June 2018 announcement about foreign manufacturing. Yet another example that lies appeal to Trump supporters more than truth. The Trump clown show prevails.
July 4: Trump advisor Alex Jones announced that the Democrats are launching the second Civil War today.
July 3: One of Trump's border control agents was arrested for child pornography. An Oklahoma man who offered his home as a safe haven to an Trump-vilified immigrant was arrested Saturday for molesting the immigrant’s 5-year-old daughter. Is this what Trump is kidnapping and hiding thousands of children for?
July 3: The Republican Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that the US intelligence community was right...that Trump is lying about Russia. Indeed, Russia conspired to achieve Trump's election, confirming its illegitimacy. Anyone, including soon-to-be new Supreme Court Justice, is illegitimatized by Trump's election as well. Anyone with integrity would refuse appointment by Trump.
"The Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) released in January 2017 assessed that Russian activities in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election represented a significant escalation in a long history of Russian attempts to interfere in U.S. domestic politics. This escalation was made possible by cyber-espionage and cyber-driven covert influence operations, conducted as part of a broader "active measures" campaign that included overt messaging through Russian-controlled propaganda platforms. The ICA revealed key elements of a comprehensive and multifaceted Russian campaign against the United States as it was understood by the U.S. Intelligence Community at the end of 2016. The Committee finds that the Intelligence Community met President Obama’s tasking and that the ICA is a sound intelligence product. We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election. Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump. The Committee concurs with intelligence and open-source assessments that this influence campaign was approved by President Putin."
Today, Trump announced that he will meet with his benefactor Vladimir Putin ALONE this month. No doubt, to again thank him for his help, to degrade the US and to bestow more favors.
July 2: "One of the greatest dreams of the old Soviet Union was to put a highly suggestible American ideologue into power who would do the bidding of the Kremlin. For nearly a century, Russia wanted to change American policy in such a way that its economy and alliances with NATO would be so damaged that the Soviet Union would become the preeminent superpower in the world. The idea of a Kremlin-controlled President would live on after the death of the Soviet Union. In 2012, the plan to subject the 2016 United States election to a massive cyber influence operation, possibly in coordination with the Trump campaign, was launched. It ostensibly started with the hacking of the Democratic National Committees' servers in order to steal critical information to knock Hillary Clinton out of the running for President of the United States. The plan would eventually work to the benefit of Russia's chosen candidate, Donald Trump. On November 8, 2016, the American presidential election culminated into what could arguably be called the greatest intelligence operation in the history of the world. In the Russian attack on the American election, a strategic adversary influenced enough voters through manipulation of the internet to get their preferred candidate chosen – and convinced more than 40% of the American population that they had nothing whatsoever co do with it." (Malcolm Vance in The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West)
A movie plot realized!
July 1: Trump says NATO is worse than NAFTA and the EU is as bad as China. The US is bad, Russia and North Korea are good.
June 30: The illegitimate President of the United States announced, "Our laws are the dumbest anywhere in the world."
June 30: Trump's lies are voluminous and tiring. Three days ago, Trump said "HOUSE REPUBLICANS SHOULD PASS THE STRONG BUT FAIR IMMIGRATION BILL, KNOWN AS GOODLATTE II, IN THEIR AFTERNOON VOTE TODAY." Today, Trump said "I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2."
Trump has appointed corrupt congressional Republicans to 'serve' as defense attorneys for Vladimir Putin and his war against the US and democracy. When Rod Rosenstein and Christopher Wray, Trump appointees, appear in Congressional hearings, they are viciously attacked for not supplying classified national security and prosecutorial documents to Putin. Treasonous.
June 28: 178th day of the year, 195th mass shooting. This time, shooting and killing journalists, one of Trump's favorite targets for his supporters to attack. Repeatedly, Trump has declared that the press "is the enemy of the people" (as do the dictators around the world that Trump praises).
On social media, Trump supporters applauded the killing of journalists.
June 28: Trump announced, again, that Russia did not interfere with the 2016 election and that the FBI, CIA and all other intelligence agencies are lying. Trump says the the real criminals are them, Republican congressional investigators, Trump's appointees in DOJ/FBI, James Comey and Hillary Clinton. Lies trump truth. Vladimir Putin (and Kim Jong-Un) is Trump's strongest ally.
June: 27: It's party time in Russia again, Putin grinning big time. Destruction of the executive and legislative branches well underway, Trump has been given the opportunity to ruin the Supreme Court as well. Resignation of Justice Anthony Kennedy gives Trump another member of the 9-member Supreme Court. Progress in America is now on the chopping block as Trump, colluder with Russia and traitor, chooses another Supreme Court justice.
June 27: Now that China has directed hundreds of millions of dollars of bribes to Trump, Trump expanded China's pursuit of investment in US companies, ie stealing intellectual property and draining assets of Americans.
England prepares for crybaby Trump with parade blimp
Trump throws temper tantrums when anyone disagrees with his mocking the disabled, calling Hispanic children rapists and murderers, stealing immigrant babies and children from their mother and then selling/abusing them, calling FBI agents and national security officials traitors, calling women fat or ugly, blaming journalists of crimes when quoting him, defaming African Americans, praising ruthless dictators while degrading US allies, targeting US companies for ruin, promoting fascism, threatening nuclear war, attacking the rule of law and American values, defaming the US Constitution, urging his supporters to physically and criminally attack journalists while offering to pay their legal bills for causing injury to the journalists, promoting death threats and a vast array of verbal and public policy abuse.
Update: This crybaby Trump blimp will go on a world tour to follow Trump.
June 26: Trump won his Muslim ban. First, he entertained his voters promising a Muslim ban and won them over. Then he scared Republican legislators and won them over. Today, he got his Muslim ban from the US Supreme Court. Trump is one his way to ban non-whites from the US, Muslims and Hispanics lead his list. History, as the world already has, will point to the Trump era as the decline of America, religious freedom and human rights.
Joining Trump's endangerment of the US, the Supreme Court disregarded Trump's intent – to harm Muslims and invigorate terrorists.
June 24: "This month, we commemorate the 64th anniversary of the titanic clash of decency versus indecency in American politics, and decency won. What better way to mark it than this administration’s failed, repugnant use of migrant children as political hostages in an immigration debate? The issue 64 years ago was Sen. Joseph McCarthy, described as “the accidental demagogue” in David Halberstam’s masterpiece, “The Fifties.” The Wisconsin Republican dominated political discourse for four years by railing about a communist “deep state,” discrediting institutions (such as the federal government, entertainment industry and the media), hurling personal attacks, brazenly disregarding facts, sowing fear and distrust. Sound familiar? McCarthy drew vehement support from right-wing base voters but, by 1954, many Americans began to tire of his cruelty. A McCarthy fatigue was setting in. In March of that year, Edward Murrow threw a devastating punch. He used the entire half-hour of his CBS television program, “See It Now,” to methodically catalogue McCarthy’s fear-mongering and inconsistencies. Now we confront new indecencies. The indecency of snatching babies from parents at a border and creating military detention centers for children. The indecency that embraces a pathological North Korean dictator who starves and murders his own people, while poking traditional allies and shirking liberal democratic values. The indecency of taking a battering ram to our institutions, particularly the free press and the judiciary, for the sole purpose of weakening their ability to resist. The indecency of the many new “Roy Cohns” who advise, consent to, or help propel a dark and malicious agenda." (Steve Israel)
And, Trump is determined to break the judiciary as he did the legislative and executive branches of government. Acccording to Trump, "We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came." Down with due process.Trump Hotels No One wants

Trump is taking Christ out of Christianity and Christianity out of the United States. Racist and leader of racists, Trump damns the children. While his answer now is to attack the compassionate, how will he answer God? How will Trump's followers answer?
Trump is turning the United States into a global pariah, pillar of immorality and against itself. He attacks US allies and praises US adversaries, especially cruel dictators who murder and enslave their citizens. He is breaking international trade, civil rights and all three branches of US government, replacing them with lies, corruption, cruelty and self enrichment. He threatens to imprison FBI agents and anyone opposing his will. He has murdered indiscriminately thousands of Muslim civilians. He seeks an end to the rule of law, US national intelligence agencies, science, environmental protection, endangered species and journalism. He has turned ICE agents and soldiers into a gestapo, promoting their murder of non-whites. He encourages mass shootings in schools. He has made white supremacy, neo-Nazism, racism, sexual assault, tyranny and fascism official US policy. He undermines all religions, particularly Christianity. He has the police stopping cars and breaking into the homes of US citizens, arresting those who look like Mexicans. He has stolen thousands, losing many, of babies and children from desperate parents escaping murder and rape in their home country to save their children, then abusing them in many despicable ways, including packing them into cages, torture, rape, forced psychotropic drugs, stripping them of their clothing, handcuffing to chairsm, hoods over their heads and permanent brain and character damage. He is merely one step away from assembling them into an arena and killing them all. He sent his wife to Texas broadcasting with large letters that "I really don't care," Trump's thematic chant. He is selling the US to Russia to collude with destruction of democracy. He has formed a satanic cult of followers and racists, even in Congress, who applaud all of these atrocities. Women at his rallies wear shirts begging for Trump to grab their genitals. Men raise their fists against America. His rallies cheer defiling the US Constitution, family and American values. Under Trump, the US is no longer the moral leader of the world. Under Trump, the US is the most destabilizing influence in the world. Under Trump, the US has become an evil empire. Ronald Reagan's 'shining city on the hill' is extinguishing. Shame on Trump and his co-conspirators.
Trump calls babies and children mini rapists and murderers, steals them from their mothers to protect white supremacists, throws them into a prison cages, and sentences them to permanent brain and behavioral damage. He has set upon a path to kill them. Trump has made the US world famous for treachery and immorality.
Trump assaults Jesus, who said, "For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."
June 21: Truly incredible. Trump announced that his executive action to reverse his stealing children is temporary. He looks forward to breaking families again soon.
Trump ordered the Dept. of Defense to prepare to receive 20,000 stolen children, though also ordered 120,000 tents. Trump is obsessed with stealing children. And, he sent his wife to a detention center that has received few separated children Wearing a jacket that said in especially large letters meant for Trump's hater base, "I really don't care. Do you>"
June 21: Trump has admitted to stealing at least 2,300 children and distributing them around the US (at least 13 states)for abuse while sending their mothers back to Guatemala and elsewhere, their eyes swollen from crying in panic. Trump is perpetrating a serious human catastrophe, last night bragging how elite and better than everyone else he is. Putrid.
June 20: After, with immoral pride, devastating thousands of lives, stealing thousands of children and sending the across the US (losing many), global condemnation, papal condemnation, horror to millions of American mothers and condemnation from the Supreme Leader of Iran, Trump claimed he will reverse his policy to separate non-white children from their mothers. He said the sound of screaming babies was bad politics. No, it was his immorality.
For a week, Trump said issue could not be solved with an executive order (to stop his separation/child prison policy). Today, he issued an executive order to solve the issue. But, thousands of babies and children have already been removed, many already sexually abused and lost.
International inspectors are needed to investigate Trump's atrocities.
June 20: One of Trump's corrupt campaign managers and still working with Trump against the US made Trump happy by making fun of a 10 year old with Down's Syndrome stripped away from he mother by force. This is the image Trump wants the world to see. The US under Trump is immoral, attacking non-whites, US allies and American values while praising dictators, white supremacy and corruption.
The Republican Party made unrecognizable by Trump caused another departure. "29 years and nine months ago I registered to vote and became a member of The Republican Party which was founded in 1854 to oppose slavery and stand for the dignity of human life. Today I renounce my membership in the Republican Party. It is fully the party of Trump." (Steve Schmidt)
June 19: Trump jailed HUNDREDS OF BABIES in 3 toddler jails and is opening a 4th. Mini rapists, murderers and thieves these babies are to Trump. Their screams from Trump cages entertain Trump.
Trump ordered that the children be forcibly drugged with seizure medications, antipsychotic and antidepressant drugs, and the Parkinson's medication known as Benztropine. Children said the drugs had negative effects on them, including leaving them unable to walk, fatigued, and fearing other people.
A member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee is condemning Trump for the "zero tolerance" immigration policy that has resulted in separated families, saying that Trump is "no longer the moral leader of his country or the world."
June 19: Caught in the act of trashing human rights, most notably the right of parents and their children to be together, Trump Trump announced that he is pulling the U.S. out of the United Nations Human Rights Council.
June 19: Trump ordered an ICE agent remove a 10-year-old girl with Down syndrome from her family.
Trump will NOT allow videos of young girls taken from their mothers/fathers at the border. Where are they? Sold into sex trafficking by Trump?
June 19: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly announced that he is letting Trump do what he wants, even if it leads to impeachment, adding that at least this chapter of American history would come to a close.
June 19:Trump lost his dreamed-up war with Kim Jong-Un, so turned against young children, hoping they are an easier target for his racism.
June 18: Trump is perpetrating horrifying child abuse and torture, breaking apart families...putting the lie to notions of pro-family and pro-life. Shame on Trump and his co-conspirators against human rights, Christianity and America.
The president of the American Academy of Pediatrics on Monday said President Trump's “zero tolerance” policy separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border “amounts to child abuse.” “I can’t describe to you the room I was in with the toddlers. Normally toddlers are rambunctious and running around. We had one child just screaming and crying, and the others were really silent. And this is not normal activity or brain development with these children. It disrupts their brain architecture and keeps them from developing language and social, emotional bonds, and gross motor skills, and the development that they could possibly have,” she said.
Now that Trump is hording tens of thousands of non-whites, will he murder them?Trump to non-whites: step inside or be shot, tell your children to stop screaming when we rip them from your arms.
Trump 'state tv' (Fox News) refers to the infants and toddlers stripped away from their parents as "these mini rapists all have bombs strapped to their chests." Trump says they are "murderers and thieves...infesting our country." Trump sees non-white children as cockroaches.
Trump has made fascism the official policy of the United States (and then blame Democrats) to praise dictators (especially if they murder and jail large numbers of citizens), take orders from Vladimir Putin to weaken the US, remove from their parents by force and send young children to prison (Trump is sending 50/day, 2,000 in last 6 weeks), ban Muslims, threaten to jail Democrats, journalists and FBI agents, violate human rights, attack US allies (especially those who joined the US in war against US enemies), promote white supremacy and neo-Nazis, destroy the environment, degrade Christianity, degrade NATO and international trade, and lie about everything. With Trump the US is taking its turn toward authoritarianism, and like those before (eg, WWII Japan, Germany and Italy, Libya, Iraq) will be litigated, removed and chronicled in history.
Trump wants the world to fear the US, not admire the US. He wants payments for protection and human rights. He wants non-whites to be barred from the US. He wants business deals for his personal profit.
Trump is destroying Reagan's 'shining city on the hill' and corroding American ideals and worldwide admiration for them.
June 15: Trump's campaign manager and conduit to Russia for collusion was SENT TO JAIL pending trial in September. Over the past few months, he repeatedly conspired to tamper with witnesses and obstruct justice, sometimes attempting to hide his collusions, including with a Russian spy, using encrypted messaging programs, criminal charges that were added to an already long list of criminal charges, including conspiracy against the US.
Judge Amy Berman Jackson. "The harm in this case is the harm to the administration of justice. It is harm to the integrity of the court system. This is not middle school, I can't take your cell phone. But, I cannot turn a blind eye to these allegations. And this witness tampering occurred while the defendant was already on bond and already under an order by another judge not to do this. The defense suggested that is was inappropriate for the government to bring these matters to my attention. So I want to state quite clearly that it absolutely was not. This hearing is not about politics. It is about the defendant's alleged conduct. I am concerned that you are inclined to treat these proceedings as just another marketing experience and not a criminal case brought by a duly appointed federal prosecutor in a federal court. You have abused the trust placed in you six months ago. And, therefore, the government's motion will be granted. And the defendant will be detained pending trial as of today. And I'm also concerned that now that I have issued this order, that the risk of flight has just multiplied substantially. I appreciate the request for appeal...but I'm going to deny it." Manafort was then escorted to jail and his wallet, belt and tie were given to his wife. Bravo. Trump deserves the same.
June 15: Now that Trump has made the US a leading violator of human rights, Trump is removing the US from the UN human rights council.
June 15: Trump claimed he saved 50 million lives from HIS nuclear war with North Korea by forgiving Kim Jung Un's holding of US and Japanese hostages and murder, enslavement and rape of millions in North Korea.
June 15: Trump hoping to hang until dead Hillary Clinton, James Comey and HIS top FBI personnel, which he called '"scum at the top." Trump will obstruct justice any way he can.
June 14: Trump lawyer Jay Goldberg said that Michael Cohen interfaced with the mafia for Trump.
Trump blames the Bible, with the passage Hitler used to jail Jews, for taking young children and infants, some while breast feeding, from their parents on ruse of taking them to the showers (the Hitler trick), storing thousands in cages instead. Terrified mothers can hear their children screaming as they are dragged into inhumane jails – a concentration camp for children. Child internment camps!
Update: DHS says they have 11,500 children, increasing at rate of 250/day, estimated to reach 30,000 by August
Trump cannot tolerate non-whites in US
"Other governments have separated mothers and children." (General Michael Hayden, CIA Director)
Birkenau in Poland, a Hitler seperator
"(Trump's) zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart. These images are eerily reminiscent of the Japanese American internment camps of World War II, now considered to have been one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history. We also know that this treatment inflicts trauma; interned Japanese have been two times as likely to suffer cardiovascular disease or die prematurely than those who were not interned." (Laura Bush, First Lady)
June 14: Russia use to be referred to as The Bear. Now, this refers to Trump. How fitting.
Trump's abrupt change for 60+ years of military precedence to NOT train with South Korea to defend against North Korea was inspired by Trump's input from Putin. Russia is calling many shots in the US.
June 14: A DOJ IG report found, as this web site concluded/published 2 years ago, that FBI Director James Comey wrongly announced investigation into Hillary Clinton and then reopening this investigation 10 days before the November 2016 election (these announcements combined with Trump-Russia collusion to illegitimately elect Trump; Comey did NOT announce the investigation into Trump for his illicit collusion with Russia). The IG concluded that there was NO political motivation with FBI's investigation into Clinton, that there was no reason to criminally charge Clinton and that there was no substantive evidence of FBI bias against Trump. The IG concluded that Comey should NOT have made any announcements pertaining to Clinton. Again, what Comey did against Clinton did not work against Trump, but rather for Trump. Comey and Russia got Trump elected, which Trump has used to degrade the United States, the US Presidency, NATO, US allies, Hispanics, Muslims, African Americans, our children, American values, truth and many others AND to promote racism, white supremacy, sexual assault, lies, murder by gun especially in our schools, child abuse, free trade, US adversaries (eg, Russia, China, North Korea), obstruction of justice, collusion with Russia and treason.
The current FBI Director, Christopher Wray, appointed by Trump, said clearly that there was no bias in FBI's investigations, regardless of lies from Trump and his congressional and media co-conspirators against the FBI and American values.
Trump et all are attacking the DOJ and FBI because an FBI agent did not want Trump to win the election but failed to prevail and Comey did not reveal FBI investigation into Trump that began by July 2016 but instead significantly deflated Clinton's prospects. Trump is essentially attacking the government for winning the election.
Note: the IG report found that Comey used a personal email account, exactly what he chastised Clinton for so vehemently.
Republican Representative Joe Walsh. "1. The FBI was right to decide not to charge Hillary with a crime. 2. That decision wasn't motivated by political bias or improper considerations. 3. James Comey made mistakes. 4. Those mistakes helped Trump win."
June 14: The NY Attorney General sued Trump for a pattern of persistent illegal conduct, occurring over more than a decade, that includes extensive unlawful political coordination with the Trump presidential campaign, repeated and willful self-dealing transactions to benefit Mr. Trump’s personal and business interests, and violations of basic legal obligations for non-profit foundations. The Attorney General initiated a special proceeding to dissolve the Trump Foundation under court supervision and obtain restitution of $2.8 million and additional penalties. The AG’s lawsuit also seeks a ban from future service as a director of a New York not-for-profit of 10 years for Mr. Trump and one year for each of the Foundation’s other board members, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. The Attorney General also sent referral letters today to the Internal Revenue Service and the Federal Election Commission, identifying possible violations of federal law for further investigation and legal action by those federal agencies. Trump used the Trump Foundation’s charitable assets to pay off his legal obligations, to promote Trump hotels and other businesses, and to purchase personal items. In addition, at Mr. Trump’s behest, the Trump Foundation illegally provided extensive support to his 2016 presidential campaign by using the Trump Foundation’s name and funds it raised from the public to promote his campaign for presidency, including in the days before the Iowa nominating caucuses. “As our investigation reveals, the Trump Foundation was little more than a checkbook for payments from Mr. Trump or his businesses to nonprofits, regardless of their purpose or legality,” said Attorney General Underwood. The Trump Foundation also entered into at least five self-dealing transactions that were unlawful because they benefitted Mr. Trump or businesses he controls. These include a $100,000 payment to settle legal claims against Mr. Trump’s Mar-A-Lago resort; a $158,000 payment to settle legal claims against his Trump National Golf Club in 2008 from a hole-in-one tournament; and a $10,000 payment at a charity auction to purchase a painting of Mr. Trump that was displayed at the Trump National Doral in Miami.
Trump never does anything legal or tells the truth.
Trump admiringly called Kim Jung Un "a tough guy." He did what he had to do to be a success (eg, murder, rape, enslavement, executing family members, forced abortion, mass starvation, torture). Trump admires tough guys (Kim, Putin, Duterte, Assad). Trump finds appealing their killing and jailing millions of their citizens and denigrating journalists and minorities. Trump saluted 2 North Korean generals! Trump wants to be a tough guy too, denigrating the free press, banning Muslims and jailing Hispanics, including ripping children from breast-feeding mothers and throwing them into cages.
Behaving presidential is an anathema for Trump. He cannot comprehend the profound nature of true leadership, America or the presidency, eg the comment of Robert Kennedy, "Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
If Trump told the truth he would have no supporters.
June 13: Republican Senator Bob Corker concluded that Trump has transformed the Republican Party into a lie-based cult.
June 13: Trump proclaimed that North Korea "is no longer a nuclear threat." No more defense exercises with South Korea. US soldiers based at the DMZ are coming home. Trump 'NK-T Real Estate Ventures' is next. The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), which also reported Kim Jong-un had accepted an invitation to visit the White House, said Mr Trump had indicated he would lift sanctions along with ending military exercises with South Korea. According to Trump, North Korea is now a peace loving nation.
Trump says he trusts Kim Jong Un. And if he's wrong? "I may be wrong, I mean I may stand before you in six months and say, 'Hey I was wrong,'" said Trump, before adding, "I don't know that I'll ever admit that, but I'll find some kind of an excuse."
Trump announced today, again, that the media is America's biggest enemy.Trump's propaganda video for his new dictator buddy, Kim Jong-Un
Dear Supreme Leader, Trump real estate corruption will set you free
Trump honors murdering dictators and generals
Sad it is that American and Brittish voters were so suckered by Russia, intent on breaking the US and Britain for decades but finally reaching success with their Trump, NRA, Facebook and Brexit chess moves.
June 11: Trump legitimized Kim Jong Un, a ruthless mass murderer who even killed his brother and uncle, and transformed him into a world leader and called him "an honorable man." One dishonorable fascist calling another fascist honorable! Trump, needing a diversion, shook the hands of Kim and signed a pablum agreement to be nice. And, Trump promised Kim fantastic Trump hotels in search of more profit from violating the US Constitution by profiting from foreign governments. Trump sees North Korea as great real estate 'location location location'. Great prospects for Trump business development.
Hours before the big meeting, Kim toured Singapore as a rock star. Trump was locked in his room sweating profusely and doing his hair and makeup over and over.
Trump has a ‘very special bond’ with Kim Jong-Un but there is ‘a special place in hell’ reserved for Justin TrudeauMost infamous dictators unite for a real estate deal
Trump looks forward to developing hotels for Kim's waterfront property, ie North Korea's coast line.
Trump degraded the US to elevate North Korea
June 11: Putin is pleased. Trump rejected the communique from the G7. "We, the Leaders of the G7, have come together in Charlevoix, Quebec on June 8–9, 2018, guided by our shared values of freedom, democracy, the rule of law and respect for human rights and our commitment to promote a rules-based international order. As advanced economies and leading democracies, we share a fundamental commitment to investing in our citizens and meeting their needs and to responding to global challenges. We collectively affirm our strong determination to achieve a clean environment, clean air, and clean water. We are resolved to work together in creating a healthy, prosperous, sustainable and fair future for all. We acknowledge that free, fair, and mutually beneficial trade and investment, while creating reciprocal benefits, are key engines for growth and job creation. To support growth and equal participation that benefits everyone, and ensure our citizens lead healthy and productive lives, we commit to supporting strong, sustainable health systems that promote access to quality and affordable healthcare and to bringing greater attention to mental health. We recognize that gender equality is fundamental for the fulfillment of human rights and is a social and economic imperative. We urge Russia to cease its destabilizing behavior, to undermine democratic systems and its support of the Syrian regime. We condemn the attack using a military grade nerve agent in Salisbury, United Kingdom. We share and agree with the United Kingdom’s assessment that it is highly likely that the Russian Federation was responsible for the attack, and that there is no plausible alternative explanation. We share the responsibility of working together to stimulate sustainable economic growth that benefits everyone, and, in particular, those most at risk of being left behind."
Trump called Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau "very dishonest and weak," for presenting the communique.
June 11: Referring to Trump and Kim Jong Un, a Fox News host said, "This is history we are living, regardless of what happens in that meeting between the two dictators. What we are seeing right now, this is history."
Trump's friends: Russia, North Korea, China, Phillipines and Syria – who have killed millions. Trump's foes: Canada, Germany, France, US.Trump Hates Love

STOP KILLING OUR CHILDREN
June 9: "So.... you’re suggesting using a National Security regulation to charge $8B in tariffs to *American* consumers who buy 1 million cars made by American automakers, containing 60% American parts content, because of the price of milk in Windsor?" (Flavio Volpe, President of Canada's Automotive Parts Manufacturers Association)
"Simply put, the E.U. invests more in the United States, buys more American services and employs more American workers than the other way around. “As a ready comparison: 45 of 50 U.S. states export more to the E.U. than they do to China. And what of China’s foreign direct investment into the United States? It’s around one-hundredth that of Europe’s. But, as with any partnership, the prospect of unilateral action by one side, to the detriment of the other partner, places the entire mutually beneficial relationship at risk." (Twenty-nine European Union (EU) ambassadors)
"TRUMP disgraced the Presidency and the United States at the G-7 summit. From his slovenly appearance to his unpreparedness, ignorance and arrogance, he beclowned himself. The Republican majority is filled with cowards who are servile supplicants to the most unfit POTUS ever." (Steve Schmidt)
Trump's apology tour. He never does anything wrong, but tells the world that the world's problems are due to the US, 242 years of US presidents, the media, the rule of law, the FBI, US allies and democracy. On the other hand, Trump praises US enemies, dictators and 'leaders' who kill journalists and political rivals. They are so happy that they have someone so dear inside the US ruining the US.
June 9: Trump's crazy for the day. 1. He announced terminating ALL international trade if the G6 countries to not kneel to him. This would destroy the US economy on behalf of Russia. 2. He announced that he will give Kim Jong Un 1 minute to convince him that Kim will end his nuclear weapon program. His non-preparation for the 'summit' will be saved by Trump's intuition, which led to several bankruptcies. 3. He wants to reward Russia with membership in the G7 for invading Crimea and operating a war in Ukraine, the very reasons Russia was removed from the G8, thus forming the G7, which may yet become the G6 if the US is also removed.
"The president has inexplicably shown our adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies. Those nations that share our values and have sacrificed alongside us for decades are being treated with contempt. This is the antithesis of so-called ‘principled realism’ and a sure path to diminishing America’s leadership in the world.To our allies: bipartisan majorities of Americans remain pro-free trade, pro-globalization & supportive of alliances based on 70 years of shared values. Americans stand with you, even if our president doesn't." (Senator John McCain)
June 8: Trump announced that he is Russia's worst nightmare. What a nightmare it is – almost daily praise for Vladimir Putin and Russia and doing their bidding to degrade the US, weaken NATO and implant wedges and trade wars between US and NATA/Canada/Mexico/France/Germany/England. Putin engineered with Trump his corrupt election and could not be happier. Trump has made the US an agent for Russia.
Trump makes friends with America’s enemies and enemies out of America’s friends.
June 8: Trump announced that he will pardon Muhammad Ali and that Ali was not popular when he was alive. The facts: Ali was the most popular person in the world for decades, recognized by more people than anyone else has been. His career and wit were highly regarded. And, Ali needs no pardon. While Ali was convicted for evading the military draft, the US Supreme Court overruled this conviction by unanimous decision in 1971.
June 7: "I am convinced that Vladimir Putin has a grip on Trump. The President of the United States is frightened of Putin and his grip. When I first learned of the Steele dossier, it just rang true to me, because that’s how the Russians do things. And before he became a candidate or president, Donald Trump was the perfect target for Russian intelligence. Here is someone who has no self-control, a sense of sexual entitlement and intermittent financial crisis. I mean, that’s made-to-order for seduction by Russian intelligence." (Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, a former Fox News conservative military analyst who left the network amid claims of pro-Trump bias)
Trump is instituting fascism and monarchy in the US
June 7: Trump wants the death penalty for drug dealers....but, just pardoned a criminal convicted of running a cocaine drug ring out of her home. Trump likes giving the finger to the justice system.
June 7: Trump authorized Sean Hannity to broadcast advice for witnesses in the Trump investigation to destroy evidence that they have that could be used by Robert Mueller.
June 7: After being bribed by China with hundreds of millions of dollars, Trump sanctioned ZTE, the Chinese telecommunications firm that US national security agencies and the Pentagon say is a spy.
June 6: Trump congratulated FEMA for helping kill nearly 5,000 American citizens in Puerto Rico.
Trump needs his diaper changed.
June 6: Trump sent Rudy Giuliani out while in Israel to announce that Kim Jong Un "got on his knees and begged for it." This sexual innuendo is what Trump likes to say about his male adversaries. (During the same media appearance, Giuliani attacked Stormy Daniels, Trump's sex object, as less worthy than Trump's 3 wives, against whom Trump serially committed adultery. He considers all women as objects to be degraded. Notably, Trump's biggest complaint about living in the White House is that he cannot watch pornography. Trump even appeared in a 'porno movie' himself. And, Trump is eager to show off pictures of his wives and daughter scantily dressed.)
June 6: Trump continued his war against African Americans and everyone else alarmed with police brutality and murder of African Americans. He blamed the Philadelphia Eagles for kneeling during the national anthem, a lie, and canceled their event at the White House, replacing it with an 8-minute sing along to the national anthem to which he does not know the words. Poignantly, a white man in the audience 'took a knee'.
We kneel in church. Why can't we kneel to draw attention to police brutality and murder.Trump wants sins Great Again
June 6: Trump explained why he announced that Canada is a national security threat against the US. Trump blamed Canada for England's 1812 war against the US, during which England set fire to the White House. In fact, Canada had no role in the War of 1812 other than being attacked by the US on several occasions. As usual, Trump policy and attacks are based on lies.
Trump supporters prefer lies, attacking allies, ruining the FBI/DOJ, breaking the Constitution, sexual assault, racism....the worst of behaviors.
June 6: The World Bank is warning that trade tensions between the United States and other countries could hurt global trade as badly as the financial crisis did in 2008. "A broad-based increase in tariffs worldwide would have major adverse consequences for global trade and activity. An escalation of tariffs up to legally-allowed bound rates could translate into a decline in global trade flows amounting to 9 percent, similar to the drop seen during the global financial crisis in 2008-09."
June 6: Of course they do. Vladimir Putin announced, "Indeed, Donald Trump and I have, firstly, met more than once at various international venues and secondly, we regularly talk over the phone."
June 5: In response to the mass murder of students in Parkland, FL, Trump created a bogus 'school safety commission'. However, it is not allowed to discuss guns
No wonder an 8th grade class in Pennsylvania was issued bulletproof backpack plates as a graduation gift.
June 5: A federal judge ruled that a defamation lawsuit against Trump may proceed and that Trump must comply with deposition by January 31, 2019. Of course, he will lie over and over under oath as he does on Twitter, during interviews and during speeches.
June 4: 242 years ago, the US kicked out rule by king. Today, the US is ruled by a tyrant.
June 4: It should be obvious to everyone, not just most of us, that Trump and his lawyers are admitting that Trump is guilty of conspiracy with Russia against the US and obstruction of justice. They lie and fight the rule of law and lawful investigation viscously. They threaten the life and reputation of those seeking adherence to the US Constitution, truth and the rule of law. They boast of Trump being above the law able to exonerate himself from prosecution. Innocent people would simply tell the truth.
"So [Deputy Attorney General Rod] Rosenstein, Bob Mueller and others are now looking into this and for the president at this point to say it's unconstitutional, I think it just shows how worried is he, how fearful he is about what the special counsel is uncovering. And his tweets are not the tweets of an innocent individual. So I think it really demonstrates just how desperate he is get, grasping at straws and Rudy Giuliani as well. Neither Rudy nor his boss feel encumbered by facts, truth or common sense and that's why they're throwing these things out now to try to get whatever traction among their base as possible." (CIA Director John Brennan)
June 4: About Congress Ronald Reagan's daughter, Patti Davis, said, "He would be appalled and heartbroken at a Congress that refuses to stand up to a president who not only seems ignorant of the Constitution but who also attempts at every turn to dismantle and mock our system of checks and balances." She also said that her father would call on Americans "to recognize that the caustic, destructive language emanating from our current president is sullying the dream that America once was."
June 4: Trump declared today, "I HAVE THE ABSOLUTE RIGHT TO PARDON MYSELF." He will murder, he will obstruct justice, he will money launder and he will betray the United States. And, then pardon himself for high crimes and treason.
The US Supreme Court will disagree. Trump will lead his anti-American supporters into a second civil war and third world war.
June 3: "Our recollection keeps changing." Trump's latest explanation for non-stop lies.
June 3: Via Rudy Giuliani Trump says he cannot be indicted even for murdering James Comey. Trump says he is above all law. His power is absolute. The US Constitution is meaningless. Trump is wrong of course. And, he violates his oath of office to uphold the law. But bogus Republicans cheer. They want Russia in Americal as well.
Trump said during campaign that he could kill someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it.
June 3: Trump claims that NATO allies (eg, Canada, Germany) and Mexico are risks to US national security, and thus has instituted tariffs against them in order to fund US military build up against them. Trump wars in North Korea, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Iran and Palestinian territories need to be augmented with wars against NATO and Mexico according to Trump.
Canada purchases from the US exceed those of the EU, Mexico and Japan combined. Canada has partnered with US national security for 150 years. Now, Trump says Canada is a US national security threat and plans to attack Canada any way he can. He also particulary despises Mexico and Germany.
June 3: Trump inspires the worst behavior with his boast of serial sexual assault and racism (on Trump's behalf, his lawyer Michel Cohen said that raping a spouse is not a crime). For example. Nathan Larson, a self-declared racist and ex-con who advocates for pedophilia and rape, is running for Congress in the 10th Congressional District of Virginia. Larson even sounds like Trump, "A lot of people are tired of political correctness and being constrained by it. People prefer when there's an outsider who doesn't have anything to lose and is willing to say what's on a lot of people's minds."
June 3: Six finance ministers, representing some of the closest allies of the U.S., issued a stern rebuke of the protectionist policies of the administration of President Donald Trump, signaling a deep rift in the relations underpinning the post-World War II trading system. The ministers of the six non-U.S. members of the Group of Seven industrialized nations—the host Canada, along with France, Germany, the U.K., Italy and Japan—on Saturday issued a joint statement excluding the U.S., and conveying their “unanimous concern and disappointment” with the U.S. decision last week to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imported from the European Union, Canada and Mexico. Traditionally the U.S. has been a driver of G-7 unity, and typically leads efforts to reach consensus. On trade, the U.S. has quite dramatically become a source of discord and division.
June 2: Soon to a dark theater near you. Trump is finalizing a 'summit' with Vladimir Putin and practicing his thank you kiss. What else will Trump hand over to Russia?
June 2: Sen. Bob Corker said Saturday that he is working with other Senate Republicans on an effort to "push back" on Trump's use of authority "in ways never intended and that are damaging to our country and our allies."
June 2: The mother of a Texas school shooting victim said that in a recent meeting with families, "It was like talking to a toddler."
June 2: Trump has spent more in taxpayer dollars on frequent trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida than special counsel Robert Mueller's office has spent on the Russia investigation so far.
June 2: Maybe Donald Trump really is the Manchurian Candidate, a stooge of some foreign potentate. Much more likely, Trump is just mentally unstable and narcissistic. Whichever it is, Trump is rapidly destroying American global leadership, alliances, and interests. Wednesday's announcement of new tariffs on steel and aluminum exports from Canada, Mexico, and the European Union is the latest bizarre and self-destructive move. I have just returned from a trip to Europe. Across Europe, there was not a single word of respect for Trump. The constant refrain was extreme puzzlement and deep consternation. How did America fall so far so fast? The US has probably never before had a delusional President, one who speaks gibberish, insults those around him including his closest associates, and baffles the world. By instinct, we strive to make sense of Trump's nonsense, implicitly assuming some hidden strategy. There is none. Trump's trade actions are blatantly illegal. They are flimsily justified as an act of national security, but this is sheer nonsense. They are also fatuous in terms of US economic and geopolitical interests. Harming our closest allies, raising the prices on key intermediate products, and provoking retaliation cannot possibly deliver higher wages, better jobs, or an improved trade balance. Trump's latest notion to slap tariffs on German automobiles would be even more damaging geopolitically. Trump creates chaos for no reason other than his own flagrant inability to follow rules or respect the interests of others. His is a psychopath's trade war. The result will be to undermine the long-term role of the dollar; ratchet up the public debt; and undermine the current expansion through a spiral of protectionist measures and rising uncertainties for business. Trump is unwell and unfit to be President. He is a growing threat to the nation and the world. (Jeffrey Sachs is a professor and director of the Center for Sustainable Development at Columbia University.)
June 2: Trump sent a 20-page letter to Robert Mueller in January, informing Mueller that he, his lawyers and White House staff lied when they all said that Trump had nothing to do with the false, obstructive memo he wrote to cover-up a collusion campaign meeting with Russian spies in Trump Towers. He now says he personally dictated the lie. Like Nixon, Trump said he cannot be charged with crimes because he runs the show. He cannot be guilty of obstruction of justice because he has absolute authority over all federal investigations, especially against him because federal law enforcement agencies report to him. He can pardon anyone to defend himself from his crimes. The letter acknowledges that Trump would be a serial liar during any interview with Mueller. Although Mueller's investigation has already yielded numerous indictments and pleas of guilt, Trump says that the investigation is a fraud. Trump's letter is an official obstruction of justice. (Trump's lawyers leaked the letter to the press but blamed Mueller, a standard lie from Trump)
It is amazing how gullible voters are. Even though they know that politicians rarely tell the truth, they believe them anyway. Rarely is this so clear as it is with Trump, his wacky lawyers who effectively argue that earth is not round, and frightened members of congress – all amused that their scam is so effective. Their voters, to prove themselves to their idol, kill non-whites, wear KKK and Nazi costumes, scream racist rants, threaten the media and wear signs and T-shirts promoting sexual assault, bigotry, environmental destruction and unleashed corporate fraud. They blindly accept Trump's trade war that will cost them hundreds of billions of dollars, his transferring tax burdens from rich, his exploding national debt, his threats of nuclear annihilation, his petty wars against US allies in favor of US adversaries, his degradation of national security and American leadership and his assault on American values, democracy and rule of law.
June 1: Trump is hostile to American ideals ,the US led liberal global order, our Allies, the rule of law and the very idea of liberal democracy. He is a coddler of authoritarian leaders and regimes. He is the greatest divider ever to be President. There is not enough discussion about Trumps use of mass rallies to incite his base. These rallies are fueled by lies, scapegoating, and communal victimization. Trumps lies require his followers to submit to a dystopian reality where truth is defined by what the leader says is true. (Steve Schmidt)
June 1: Game on. An upcoming episode in Trump's reality TV show. Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un June 12 is back on after Trump cancelled it last week because Kim did not say something nice about Trump. Trump hosted for 2 hours North Korea's top spy in the Oval Office, someone not legally allowed to enter the US and who runs one of the best hacking operations in the world, apparently better than the US. How much hacking did this spy do while in the White House, especially since Trump uses insecure phones?
Officials with the Department of Homeland Security detected potential surveillance activity near “sensitive facilities” in Washington, including the White House.
June 1: Trump claimed he was a big success in assisting Puerto Rico's US citizens after Hurricane Maria, insisting it was a minor catastrophe compared to Hurricane Katina. However, Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico killed about 5,000. To Trump, these deaths don't matter because the killed were Hispanics.
June 1: "My first visit to the Oval Office came in October 1990, when I was a 35-year-old CIA officer. Over the next quarter-century, I returned to the Oval Office several hundred times during the administrations of Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The esteem with which I held the presidency was dealt a serious blow when Donald Trump took office. Almost immediately, I began to see a startling aberration from the remarkable, though human, presidents I had served. Mr. Trump’s lifelong preoccupation with aggrandizing himself seemed to intensify in office, and he quickly leveraged his 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. address and his Twitter handle to burnish his brand and misrepresent reality. Mr. Trump has shown highly abnormal behavior by lying routinely to the American people without compunction, intentionally fueling divisions in our country and actively working to degrade the imperfect but critical institutions that serve us. The impact of the Trump presidency will be felt for many years to come. Most worrisome is that his use of falsehoods, his mean-spirited and malicious behavior, and his self-absorption will be emulated by many young Americans — indeed, young people globally — who look to the president of the United States as a role model. At a time when deep-seated fears of socioeconomic and cultural change need to be addressed honestly and without prejudice, Mr. Trump grandstands like a snake-oil salesman, squandering his formidable charisma and communication skills in favor of ego, selfishness and false promises. As someone who had the rare privilege of directly serving four presidents, I will continue to speak out loudly and critically until integrity, decency, wisdom — and maybe even some humility — return to the White House." (former CIA Director John Brennan)
May 31: Via Director of the Joint Staff Lt. Gen. Kenneth McKenzie, Trump threatened China with massive war. Should China not cooperate with Trump, Trump is prepared to decimate China islands as a show of man-less bravado. He will blow them apart.
May 31: The White House is going ballistic over Samantha Bee saying that Ivanka Trump, because of her support for her father's extreme racism and sexual assault, "a feckless c-nt." On the other hand, the White House endorses Trump's using the word against strong women, calling Ivanka, on a radio show, a "piece of ass," that he wanted to date and bragging about grabbing women's "pussies," and endorsing Ted Nugent for calling Hillary Clinton, "a toxic c_nt." The White House also endorses Trump's extreme racism.
June 1 update. Trump demands Samantha Bee be fired for saying what Trump calls women.
May 31: Trump announced his plan to ban German luxury cars, especially Mercedes Benz, from the United States. This will cost tens of thousands of US jobs, skilled employees who manufacture these cars in the US. Trump is also imposing steep tariffs on steel and aluminum from three of America's biggest trading partners — Canada, Mexico and the European Union. This will cost tens of thousands of US jobs. Trump's assault will raise prices for all Americans, costing Americans billions of dollars and hundreds of thousands of jobs.
The European Union said they will take retaliatory action against the United States in response the Trump administration’s decision to issue hefty steel and aluminum tariffs.
"In response to the tariffs imposed by the United States, Mexico will impose equivalent measures to various products like flat steels (hot and cold foil, including coated and various tubes), lamps, legs and shoulders of pork, sausages and food preparations, apples, grapes, blueberries, various cheeses, among others, up to an amount comparable to the level of affectation." (Mexican government)
"Let me be clear: These tariffs are totally unacceptable,. Canadians have served alongside Americans in two world wars and in Korea. From the beaches of Normandy to the mountains of Afghanistan, we have fought and died together. Canada is a secure supplier of aluminum and steel to the U.S. defense industry, putting aluminum in American planes and steel in American tanks. That Canada could be considered a national security threat to the United States is inconceivable. These tariffs are an affront to the long-standing security partnership between Canada and the United States, and in particular, to the thousands of Canadians who have fought and died alongside American comrades-in-arms." (Canadian Prime MInister Justin Trudeau)
US Chamber of Commerce says that Trump's trade tirade risks 2.6 million US jobs.
May 30: "Big difference between Trump and Obama’s presidencies is the distinction between FEAR and HOPE. Trump sells fear. Obama provided hope. Trump is trashing Obama’s legacy to foster fear, grow his frightened constituency. Trump can’t GOVERN the hopeful. But he can RULE the fearful." (John Dean)
Trump supporters only believe lies. Truth is evil.
May 30: It is abhorrent that Trump is President of the United States of America. He detests US national security and the rule of law. He illegally uses classified information to raise money and releases it to get closer to Vladimir Putin. He routinely violates the US Constitution and his oath of office. He is a racist and has green-lighted a deluge vile expressions of hate and racism. He relies on his supporters also believing that African Americans, Hispanics and Muslims are less than human and thus killing them is OK. He thrives on pulling young children from immigrants and sending them to prison and human trafficking circles. He mocks who he thinks are ugly, fat or handicapped. He is despicable.
The latest Trump conspiracy, Spy Gate, seeks to destroy the FBI. So false, even Fox News, 'Judge' Anthony Nepolitano and Rep. Trey Gowdy say Trump's spew is BS.
May 29: Trump, the world's leading racist, lost his favorite TV show, 'Roseanne'. The star was fired for the extreme racist comment she made against Valerie Jarrett, "Muslim brotherhood & planet of the apes had a baby=vj." Roseanne Barr's agent, producer and writer quit in protest. ABC/Disney terminated the #1 TV show, made famous by Trump's applause of the show's racism and ratings and boast that the show represented "us," the racists of America. (Jarrett is an American attorney, businesswoman, and civic leader. She served as the senior advisor to the President Barrack Obma and assistant to the president for public engagement and intergovernmental affairs in the Obama administration from January 20, 2009 to January 20, 2017.)
The racism of Trump and his white supremacist/neo Nazi supporters is so powerful they cannot see America.
May 28: Memorial Day, Trump style. It's all about him. He bragged how great he is, the best president and with the most accomplishments the US ever had.
Trump supporters need to watch more TV, namely true crime stories – whether murders or white-collar crime schemes. The perpetrators all share Trump's excuses. Everyone is lying. The government is lying. The police are lying. A fake conspiracy is mounted against them. Braggadocio by all. A split screen documentary would make clear Trump's awareness of his guilt – a Trump sound-bite on the left half the screen and almost verbatim sound-bite from the criminal on the right. Trump can't even act like he's innocent.
Trump's dream. A more opulent Russia. Billionaires pontificating from villas like Trump's Palm Beach Mar-a-Largo (employing scores of 'illegal immigrants'). Commoners paying the taxes. Immigrants and African Americans the labor. Government and police the tools to control the little people and legalize racism. Jailing and murdering journalists.
May 26: Of thousands of immigrant children stolen by Trump, 1,500 cannot be found in 2018 alone. Murdered? Sold to human traffickers? Fed to animals? Trump enjoys being tough against immigrants and their children. Fake Christians and fake congressional conservatives applaud Trump's cruelty. 'Pro life' does not apply to Hispanics (or Muslims and African Americans). Trump is an abomination.
May 26: Facing total failure, Trump says his summit with Kim Jong Un is back on, cancelling it just 2 days ago, rationalizing that he was only playing games.
Trump: lie, distort, blame, conspire, profit.
May 25: One of Trump's wacky lawyers claims that the government is attempting a coup against The President of the United States because it is investigating crimes and treason perpetrated by Trump.
Trump claims that the executive branch of the US government, which he controls, is actually a conspiracy against the US. The leaders of this "spy gate" conspiracy: Trump, Chief of Staff James Kelly, White House Counsel Don McGahn, EPA Director Scott Pruitt, Secretary of State and former CIA Director Mike Pompeo, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross, OMB Director Mick Mulvaney, National Security Advisor John Bolton, Michael Cohen, Alan Dershowitz, Representative Devin Nunes, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, Representative Trey Gowdy, Senator Mitch McConnell, Fox News, Breitbart, the NRA, the Republican National Committee and Trump's attorneys. Many have connections with Russian spies, Russian banks and/or Vladimir Putin, all determined to degrade America.Another racist inspired by Trump
arrested for a hate crime
Trump, the self-appointed greatest deal maker, is losing in Europe, England, China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, Australia, Russia, Canada, Mexico, tech companies, auto companies, infrastructure companies, state governments, the courts, porn stars...ie, just about everywhere. He won't even try with any Muslim country. Trump is a loser.
"For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me" Matthew 25:35. For Trump, this does not apply to immigrants, African Americans, Hispanics or Muslims. If Trump were not white he would have been tased and jailed long ago. (Trump applauded his border control agent today for shooting in the head and killing an immigrant women for hiding in tall grass)
Trump is determined to ruin America's influence in the world. Everyday, Trump weakens America.
May 24: Trump threatened via letter nuclear annihilation of North Korea and canceled the June 12 summit, a few hours after North Korea destroyed its nuclear bomb testing facility in front of scores of western journalists (a few days ago, Trump threated Kim Jong Un with the fate of Muammar Gaddafi, murder). There goes Trump's Nobel Peace Prize. Will there be refunds for those who purchased Trump's coin celebating the summit meeting? Will the 18 members of Congress take back their letter nominating Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize?
A few days ago, Trump scared Kim, threatening Kim's murder and decimation of North Korea.
May 24: "The Obama Administration got FISA warrants to spy on people who colluded with Russian spies. The Trump Administration gives security clearances to people who collude with Russian spies. Who do you think Putin wants to be our President?" (Richard Painter, ethics chief for President George Bush)
May 24: Trump proclaimed that anyone who does not stand during the national anthem should not be in the US.
According to Director of National Intelligence and appointee by Presidents George H.W. Bush, George Bush and Barrack Obama, James Clapper concluded that Russia made Trump president. US voters were made pawns in Trump's conspiracy with Russia and the most significant attack against the US in history. Fully aware of his guilt, Trump is desperately derailing investigation and US national security, selling out America.
White evangelicals worship Trump instead of God. Racism and fascism trump their religion.
May 24: "I am here today as representative of a co-equal branch of our federal government — which is failing its constitutional obligations to counteract the power of the president, and in so doing is dishonoring itself — at a critical moment in the life of our nation. Not to be unpleasant, but I do bring news from our nation’s capital. First, the good news: Your national leadership is… not good. At all. Our presidency has been debased by a figure who has a seemingly bottomless appetite for destruction and division and only a passing familiarity with how the constitution works. And our Article I branch of government, the Congress (that’s me), is utterly supine in the face of the moral vandalism that flows from the White House daily. I do not think that the founders could have anticipated that the beauty of their invention might someday founder on the rocks of reality television, and that the Congress would be such willing accomplices to this calamity. Our most ardent enemies, doing their worst (and they are doing their worst), couldn’t hurt us more than we are hurting ourselves. Now, you might reasonably ask, where is the good news in that? Well, simply put: We may have hit bottom. How did we arrive at a moment of such peril, wherein a president of the United States publicly threatens— on Fox & Friends, historians will note — to interfere in the administration of justice, and seems to think that the office confers on him the ability to decide who and what gets investigated, and who and what does not? And just this week, the President — offering an outlandish rationale, ordered an investigation into the investigation of the Russian attack on our electoral process — not to defend the country against further attacks, mind you, but to defend himself. Obviously, ordering investigations is not a legitimate use of presidential power. The rule of law is an elemental value, a value that preceded and gave rise to our Constitution. It is not an ideology subject to the pendulum swings of politics, or something to be given a thumbs-up or thumbs-down in a call-in to your favorite morning show. It is the basis of our system of self-governance. America without the rule of law is no longer America. To be clear, we did not become great — and will never be great — by indulging and encouraging our very worst impulses. It doesn’t matter how many red caps you sell." (Senator Jeff Flake to students at Harvard University)
Trump merely makes things up to hide the truth about his crimes. Like all criminals, he blames the investigators and invents nonsense conspiracy theories. He relies on gullible followers willing to accept that the police, judges and juries are spies ... and that no one ever landed on the moon, aliens are in control of the government, massive pollution has no ill effect, mass murders in schools are fake, bogus pills will cure cancer, violent video games and anti-government movies are documentaries, vilains are heros, Russian spies are US patriots, American values and national security are conspirators against the supremacy of autocracy and so on. Smoke, mirrors and "spy gate" propaganda are true. Actual truth is fake, an invention used against criminals. To derail investigation of his obstructions, conspiracies and crimes Trump is damaging the US far more than attempted by any previous adversary.
May 23: Again, Trump admitted that he colluded with Russia to win the election. Yesterday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that Russia was investigated during 2016 for their massive interference with the election. According to Clapper, Russia swung the election to Trump. Today, Trump said that this meant that his campaign was being investigated. Trump knows that Russia's interference and his campaign were closely conspiring against the US...and still are.
"Dangerous time when our country is led by those who will lie about anything, backed by those who will believe anything, based on information from media sources that will say anything. Americans must break out of that bubble and seek truth. Facts matter. The FBI’s use of Confidential Human Sources (the actual term) is tightly regulated and essential to protecting the country. Attacks on the FBI and lying about its work will do lasting damage to our country. How will Republicans explain this to their grandchildren?" (James Comey)
Today, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged that he backs the finding by U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the U.S. presidential campaign to hurt Hillary Clinton and ultimately help Trump win.
May 21: Because Trump campaign officials were collaborating with Russia to distort the 2016 election toward Trump, the FBI/DOJ recruited an informant...an American living in England. Trump insists that this individual's name be publicized so that this American informant can be killed by Russian spies as they have killed via poison others in England. Trump is determined to break America, the FBI and DOJ. Trump is also calling for the imprisonment of President Barrack Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, FBI Director James Comey, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe and CIA Director John Brennan.
To assist Russia's murder of what Trump calls a spy, Trump ordered the release of the informant's name, a former professor at Cambridge University and now 73 years old is a Republican that served as as a domestic policy adviser for President Nixon, chief of staff for President Ford and deputy assistant secretary of State for President Reagan. An adversary to Russia is an adversary to Trump.
Notably, the FBI/DOJ assisted the election tilt toward Trump and away from Clinton, erroneously announcing status reports about Hillary Clinton but witholding information about Trump's collusion to interfere with the election.
There are 2 Muslim countries NOT on Trump's Muslim ban list. Saudi Arabia and UAE. Why? Because Trump has business interests in these countries and they helped, illegally as did Russia, to get Trump elected. Prior to the election, Trump campaign officials met representatives of Saudi Arabia and UAE, and Russia, in Trump Tower in NYC.
Trump awarded himself the Nobel Peace Prize and elevated Kim Jong Un to his equal. Called Kim an "honorable man" and "Supreme Leader" for agreeing to a summit with Trump. And, Trump started selling this coin. With Kim suggesting he will not show up, Trump threatened decimation of North Korea and Kim's murder.
May 24 UPDATE
Trump threatened via letter nuclear annihilation of North Korea and canceled the June 12 summit, a few hours after North Korea destroyed its nuclear bomb testing facility in front of scores of western journalists (a few days ago, Trump threated Kim Jong Un with the fate of Muammar Gaddafi, murder). There goes Trump's Nobel Peace Prize. Will there be refunds for those who purchased Trump's coin celebating the summit meeting? Will the 18 members of Congress take back their letter nominating Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize?
May 19: Today, England is more American than the US. A young British royal married a young bi-racial American. The church was filled with all races. We were presented with the human race celebrating love and togetherness.
A beautiful break from Trump's hatred of American values, support for white supremacy, spite for God's creations, collaboration with Russia to weaken the US and democracy, legalizing corruption and greed.
May 18: The Trump effect caused another mass shooting today, this time at a school in Texas by a neo-Nazi. 10 killed and 13 injured (guns kill 30,000+ and injure 100,000+ in the US). School kids know they are more likely to be killed in school in the war with children than all the wars outside the US.
Instead of dealing with this, Trump directed the post office to double the postage rate for Amazon.com because Trump hates is owner. One of the articles of impeachment against Nixon involved Nixon's use of a federal agency against Nixon's enemies.
"The Republican leaders of Congress will immediately consult their "Post Shooting Emergency Response Manual." It goes like this: Sorrowfully tweet thoughts and prayers, lower flags to half-staff, hold moments of silence, suggest arming teachers (or insert appropriate occupation here), and wait it out. Maybe some seats in Congress will be lost instead of the lives of innocent young people who sat for a day of classes at Santa Fe High School. The only way to see change is to vote this November." (Steve Israel) Reagan Republicans are nowhere to be found. Shame on them.
"Santa Fe High, you didn’t deserve this. You deserve peace all your lives, not just after a tombstone saying that is put over you. You deserve more than Thoughts and Prayers, and after supporting us by walking out we will be there to support you by raising up your voices." (Emma Gonzalez, Parkland high school mass murder survivor)
May 17: Trump the pervert ogled again. Bill Gates was scared by Trump's slobbering over Gates' 20-year-old daughter. "So when I first talked to him (2016) it was actually kind of scary how much he knew about my daughter’s appearance. Melinda [Gates’s wife] didn’t like that too well."
May 17: Trump is the world's villain. Extortion his tool. Last year, when Qatar would not hand over hundreds of millions of dollars to Jared Kushner, Trump instituted a military blockade of Qatar even though the US Central Command is based in Qatar. Over the past few weeks, Qatar relented, committing that hundreds of millions to Kushner and Trump lifted his blockade.
Trump is also extorting NATO countries to pay for their protection and threatening obliteration of North Korea if it doesn't do what Trump wants.
May 17: Just last week, Trump said that Kim Jong Un is an honorable man. However, today theatened to remove North Korea from the planet and murder tens of millions of people if Trump's meeting with Kim Jong Un is cancelled. Still, Trump says he is going to receive the Nobel Peace prize. Unlikely.
Trump is at war with America, Americans, democracy, the rule of law and the Constitution. He claims that it is legal to conspire with Russia against the US. He is trying to destroy the FBI and DOJ and to fight testimony under oath with all his might.
Trump says that he cannot be indicted for his crimes. But, Fox News lead legal analyst, Judge Anthony Nepolitano, says that he can, "The president is not above the law. He can be indicted like anybody else."
May 17: Crime on top of crime. Trump erased all but 2 bank special activity reports for Michael Cohen. With only 2 left, a law enforcement officer released them before Trump could delete them as well.
May 17: 13% of Americans consider Trump honest and trustworthy. This is higher than the rest of the world.
May 16: "With friends like that who needs enemies," tweeted Donald Tusk, the president of the EU's European Council.
May 16: In contrast to the bogus Republican House committee, the Senate Intelligence committee agreed with all national security agencies and over 100 million voters. Russia interfered in the 2016 US election to elect Trump and harm Hillary Clinton.
May 16: Trump called immigrants animals. So classy.
Republican mega donors, the Koch brothers, are funding political adds to support Democrats who are fighting for DACA.
May 16: Trump is elated. Rudy Giuliani says that Meuller's team informed him that Trump cannot be indicted for crimes. He could drop nuclear bombs on Chicago, New York and Los Angeles, killing tens of millions of Americans and NOT be charged with a crime! And, given Russsia's collaborators in Congress, Trump would not be subject to impeachments and removal from office. No wonder he openly promotes killing Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans and his opponents.
May 16: "As I reflect upon the state of our American democracy, I observe a growing crisis in ethics and integrity. If we do not as Americans confront the crisis of ethics and integrity in our society and among our leaders in both public and private sector — and regrettably, at times, even the non-profit sector — then American democracy, as we know it, is entering its twilight years. If our leaders seek to conceal the truth, or we as people become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as American citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom. A responsibility of every American citizen to each other is to preserve and protect our freedom by recognizing what truth is and is not, what a fact is and is not, and begin by holding ourselves accountable to truthfulness, and demand our pursuit of America's future be fact-based. When we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth, even on what may seem the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on America. The truth will make you free." (Rex Tillerson, fired by Trump for respecting truth and America, considered useless values for Trump)
May 16: The White House official had a startling assertion: He thought he had received an email in the first half of 2016 alerting the Trump campaign that Russia had damaging information about Hillary Clinton. Testifying behind closed doors on Capitol Hill in late March, the official, John K. Mashburn, said he remembered the email coming from George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy adviser to the campaign who was approached by a Russian agent, sometime before the party conventions — and well before WikiLeaks began publishing messages stolen in hackings from Democrats. (New York Times)
May 16: To assist Russia's interference in US elections Trump has stopped the US government from preventing it, including firing the top cyber security policy advisor. Trump's treason continues.
Notable. While Team Trump claims that Michael Cohen's solicitations selling Trump access are false, at least 2 of the companies involved, ATT and Novartis, fired top executives for their involvement with Trump. Obviously, as usual, Team Trump is lying.
Trump and his collaborating Republicans have turned America into a partisan issue. They oppose America, preferring corruption, racism and the Russian way.
They are tearing down the rule of law, government agencies and democracy.
May 15: Simultaneous with Trump's ceremony in Israel to institute Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, obliterating the views of Muslims, Israel killed 60+ Palestinians, including young children, and injured 2,500. Trump prevented the US from investigating these atrocities. For Trump, Muslims deserve to be murdered.
May 15: Trump plans to create illegal concentration camps like those of Nazi Germany, imprisoning children of migrant workers on US military bases.
May 14: Trump announced that members of his White House staff are traitors for discussing, emulating Trump, illegalities and attacks of Americans from the White House.
May 14: 72 hours after China 'invested' $500,000,000 into a Trump project, Trump, in turn, moved to bail out the Chinese telecom company ZTE to save ZTE jobs at the expense of US jobs...even though ZTE repeatedly violates US law and is considered by the DOJ as a risk to national security. US companies are prohibited from doing business with LTE because LTE supplies Iran and North Korea. Illegal quid pro quo and violation of Trump's oath of office. And, China awarded his daughter Ivanka 7 new trademarks, now totalling 34 inside China. And, yet another Trump violation of the US Constitution.
During the 2016 campaign, Trump boasted that China was raping the US, but after massive income from China to Trump, Trump is making China great again.
May 12: Off topic, but just as sick. Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer (R) signed a new bill into law on Thursday that bans police officers from having sex with people they pull over for traffic violations. Before the measure, Kansas was one of 33 states where consensual sex between police and an individual they detained was not a crime. 32 states still say that a cop pulling you over for going 1 mpg over the speed limit or for being black can legally force you into sex!
May 11: Trump proposed a 20% tariff on imported cars that would also be subject to Obama-era emissions regulations (Trump has lesser standard for US cars). Trump enjoys increasing prices for Americans.
May 11: Trump sold another empty plan, a placebo. His plan to reduce prescription drug prices was so useless that the drug industry cheered and their stock prices rose.
The Trump effect. He praises racist companies and gave them a huge tax cut paid for by the middle class. Then they fire employees and move their plants outside the US. The latest example is Harley Davidson, who closed a plant in Kansas to build a new one in Thailand.
May 10: Trump's removal from the Iran nuclear agreement to prevent Iran nuclear weapons has already escalated the Iran-Israel conflict, a promise of Saudi Arabia to acquire nuclear weapons and condemnation from US national security experts, France, England and Germany.
May 9: Trump claims that he should win the Nobel Peace Prize because he threatened nuclear bomb annihilation of North Korea in order for North Korea to capitulate to Trump's iron fist. Obviously, this despicable threat of Trump does not merit a prize of any sort.
Trump opposes peace. Because Senator John McCain opposes him, Trump says who cares, he is dying. He fires up his crowds to ban Muslims and Latinos, assault Islam and Christianity, mock disabled people and women he says are ugly and fat, applaud white supremacists and neo-Nazis, abandon democracy and American values of truth of and the rule of law, and promote sexual assault and government corruption. He claims that the US has the worst immigration laws in the history of mankind, worse than Nazis murdering millions of Jewish immigrants. He says immigrants have no skills. Trump despises truth and most of the world's population: non-whites, poor people, Muslims, Hispanics, Asians, women, non-fake Christians, all previous US presidents especially Barrack Obama because he was an African American. And, he wants to bring back torture "and worse" to the CIA and DOD.
May 9: Trump colluded with an associate of Vladimir Putin to pay porn star Stormy Daniels hush money using Michael Cohen as the middle man. $500,000 were transferred from Putin's associate AFTER the 2016 election, about the same amount and in installments 2017-2018 like Trump said he re-imbursed Michael Cohen, "funneling" hush and dirty tricks money from Trump according to Rudy Giuliani. TREASON.
Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avanatti, released details of far more money funneled to Cohen into Cohen's bank account Cohen said he set up to pay hush money to Daniels, over $3 million (grew to over $4 million as various Cohen 'clients' admitted during May 9 that they paid Cohen more; much of this money was paid to Trump for illicit access to Trump, revealing new crimes by Cohen...one of many Trump pay to play schemes). Cohen disputed merely $20,000 of the $4.2 million, meaning that Avanatti was nearly 100% accurate.
Consumed by hate, virtually all decisions by Trump are to erase President Obama's history and for Russia.
May 7: May 7, 1945, Nazi Germany signed unconditional surrender to its war. Trump would have attacked the agreement because it made the world a safer place, curtailing fascism. Today, Trump made the world a more dangerous place, announcing US withdrawal from Iran's agreement to stop development of nuclear weapons. Trump prefers a nuclear armed Iran. Confrontation at all costs.
Notably, Trump's CIA Director and Director of National Intelligence says that Iran is in full compliance with the agreement. US allies urged Trump not to damage the agreement. Trump couldn't care less.
"Today, Donald Trump simultaneously lied about the Iranian nuclear deal, undermined global confidence in US commitments, alienated our closest allies, strengthened Iranian hawks, & gave North Korea more reason to keep its nukes. This madness is a danger to our national security." (former CIA Director John Brennan)
Just one example of the economic cost. Boeing is losing a $17 billion contract to deliver 80 aircraft to Iran Air
May 7: Trump tried a 4 hour practice session for an interview with Robert Mueller. Trump failed, addressing only 2 questions in 4 hours, rambling and lying like he does on TV and Twitter. His lawyers and supporters know that there is a 100% chance of Trump lying under oath.
May 7: Trump, the world's most famous boaster of his prolific sexual assault, ridiculed Eric Sneiderman for allegations of rough sex. Sneiderman resigned 3 hours after news of the allegation. Trump boasts about his, supported by white evangelicals.
May 6: Moments after his wife spoke out to help children, Trump instituted the horrific US policy to forcibly remove young children, including infants, from their mother when crossing the border into the US (though only from Mexico). Hundreds of children have already been taken and sent to prison. Trump wants to be sure that the world and our own children see the US as terrible.
May 6: Adult-film star Stormy Daniels's attorney, Michael Avenatti, said Sunday that he believes evidence will be revealed proving Michael Cohen paid other women to cover up alleged affairs with President Trump. "Women have come forward and contacted our office, George, as I've stated in the past. And we haven't completed vetting those stories but I think at the end of the day, there's going to be evidence of such payments," Avenatti told George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week." Giuliani said Cohen would have paid other women as well "if it was necessary." Avenatti later pointed to Giuliani's comments and argued that they meant such payments on Trump's behalf were "commonplace." "The president had effectively an extramarital affair slush fund that was administered by Michael Cohen, and that he would just be expected to take care of these things," Avenatti said. (The Hill)
Trump is a serial adulterer and has been able to cover up these sex affairs using a slush fund for his personal fixer, Michael Cohen.
Trump and his defense lawyers are terrified that Michael Cohen and/or Paul Manafort will FLIP against Trump, ie tell the truth about Trump's lies, crimes and treason.
May 6: Once again, Rudy Giuliani, Trump's mad dog attorney, undermined Trump. Maybe it's the remaining prosecutor blood in him. Today, Giuliani said that he does not live in the fantasy world where everyone tells the truth. Thus, he does not want Trump to testify under oath...because Trump would not tell the truth. He never does. Giuliani also said that it is acceptable to lie to the American people but that such lies under oath would be a "perjury trap." And, Giuliani said that Trump has an extramarital sex affair slush fund administered by Michael Cohen. Trump paid Cohen nearly $500,000 – "funneled" by Trump through Cohen – for the Stormy Daniel's component of Trump's slush fund used to repay Cohen for his dirty tricks. Giuliani said that this slush fund could be a campaign contribution and last night on Fox News, Giuliani said that the Daniels' payment was a campain expenditure.
Giuliani also stated that a federal judge ruled that Robert Mueller's DOJ-authorized investigation is a "witch hunt." A lie, there was no such ruling. And, Giuliani said that Trump is above the law and would not have to comply with a subpoena to testify under oath.
Nixon and Bill Clinton fought subpoena to testify but lost their cases in the Supreme Court.
Giuliani said that Trump might invoke the Fifth Amendment, and invocation that Trump said shows you are a criminal.
The Trump/Giuliani proposition: if a bank robber repays the money, there is no crime.
For Trump, integrity has no value. His supporters agree and reflexively-but-not-meaningfully rationalize Trump's lies.
Trump supporters and white evangelicals applaud Trump for having an extramarital sex affair with porn-star Stormy Daniels. But, they trash un-married Daniels for having a sex affair with Trump. Go figure.
May 6: "You didn’t know about the $130,000 payment to a porn star, until you did. Said you knew nothing about how your former lawyer handled this, until you acknowledged today that you were the guy behind the retainer payment that took care of this. You insist that money from the campaign or campaign contributions played no role in this transaction. Of that you’re sure. The thing is, not even 24 hours ago, sir, you couldn’t recall any of this. I guess you’ve been too busy draining the swamp to stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your doing. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp. They’re not the problem, Mr. President. You are." (Neal Cavuto, Fox News)
May 6: Trump and Putin are still collaborating against the US with coordinated twitter storms against Robert Mueller, the FBI, DOJ and US national security, American values, truth and the rule of law.
May 6: Trump hired Israeli spies to dig up or invent dirt on Obama associates who supported the controls on Iran against nuclear weapon development. Trump wants to greenlight Iran nuclear weapons and enter into nuclear war with Iran.
May 6: Over the past couple days, Trump attacked England and France again, this time over guns. Trump claims that blood flows in the streets and hospitals from knife wounds (false of course), preferring the blood and carnage from guns. Trump claims, falsely, that guns would stop terrorism in France. Trump hopes to export to England and France murders by terrorism and the tens of thousands of murders guns in the US.
May 6: Senator John McCain is preparing for his death. He is suffering from Stage IV brain cancer. McCain has asked Presidents Barrack Obama and George Bush to give eulogies at his funeral at Washington National Cathedral. He does not want Trump there, who seethes with hate for McCain.
May 5: "A difference between some of us and some Trump apologists. When a judge criticizes the special counsel, we may disagree—but we take it in stride as part of the legal process. We don’t call for his impeachment, attack in a demagogic way, or abandon a commitment to the rule of law." (Bill Kristol)
Trump has convinced millions of Americans, especially fake Christians, to abandon the US Constitution (other than a distorted version of the Second Amendment) and American values of truth and the rule of law. Trump has made it the official policy of the US to lie, cheat, ridicule, trash civil rights and threaten.
May 4: Trump announced that enemies of the US are assembled along the border with Mexico. Yet another false verbal war.
May 4: The 3 stooges can't keep their lies straight. For months, including in 2018, Michael Cohen said that he was never reimbursed for the $130,000 payment to Stormy Daniels. Trump, early April 2018, said he knew nothing about this payment, even though it has been high in the news for many months and Trump has filed various pleadings in a California federal lawsuit regarding this payment). The past 2 days, Rudy Giuliani said he had authorization from Trump to say that Trump paid Cohen nearly $500,000 2017-2018 by funneling money to Cohen to reimburse Cohen ($500,00 to reimburse $130,000 paid to Stormy Daniels!). Giuliani also claimed that Trump knew nothing about his reimbursing Cohen with $500,000 until 10 days ago. He assured us that he carefully coordinated his statements with Trump. Today, Trump said that Giuliani only started yesterday (although he was hired 2 weeks ago and has been a Trump advisor since 2015), lied and that he and Giuliani will have another version of lies soon. Also, today, Trump blasted the FBI/DOJ/NY US Attorneys/Robert Mueller, calming that they were conducting a witch hunt because they were all Democrats (false, all the people he is talking about are Republicans, also not witch hunt).
May 3: 1,100 economists, which include 15 Nobel laureates and advisers to former presidents Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama, on warned Trump that protectionist trade policies will endanger economic growth and that similar action plunged the country into the Great Depression in the 1930s. Trump's anti-trade fetish will cost Americans trillions of dollars in lost income and higher prices.
America regrets that millions of Trump supporters, including white evangelicals, endorse Trump's promotion of lies, corruption, fraud, Putin's efforts to divide and demoralize America and damage democracy, violations of the US Constitution and US laws, sexual assault, attacks on federal law enforcement and government institutions, America's environment and future, degradation of America and the presidency, white supremacy, loss of health insurance by millions, military weapons in schools, war against Muslims and Hispanics, and treason. Most of the people around the world see the US falling apart under Trump.
May 3: Trump, Giuliani and their congressional enablers claim that American values of truth and rule of law, FBI leadership, hundreds of FBI agents, dozens of US Attorneys, DOJ leadership, Rod Rosenstein, Robert Meuller and his investigators, James Comey, several federal judges, dozens of federal grand jurors, the CIA, the NSA, hundreds of national intelligence professionals, Hilliary Clinton, millions of Democrats, hundreds of journalists, Stormy Daniels, 20 women victims of Trump's sexual assault/harassment, Michael Flynn, Rick Gates, George Popadopoulos, Sam Nunberg, and potentially Michael Cohen, Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort are engaged in a criminal conspiracy against Trump. False of course. Most of the people around the world see the US falling apart under Trump.
May 3: Rudy Giuliani, on behalf of Trump, had 3 more bombshells. 1) Trump paid $130,000 hush money to Stormy Daniels to keep the story out of the last month of the campaign (October/November 2016) among several other hush money payments. 2) Jared Kushner is expendable, effectively conceding that Kushner like Michael Cohen will be indicted.3) Ivanka Trump should be exonerated of crimes because she is a woman.
May 2: To dissuade Ukraine from cooperating with Robert Mueller, Trump sold missiles to the country, which convinced Ukraine to terminate their work with Mueller. Illegal quid pro quo.
May 2: For months, Trump claimed that he knew nothing about Michael Cohen's payment of $130,000 of hush money to Stormy Daniels to keep her from talking about their sex affair. Cohen said the same. Today, Rudy Giuliani on behalf of Trump said Trump DID know about it AND paid the money himself, repaying Cohen by the end of 2017. Giuliani also disclosed that Trump paid Cohen nearly $500,000 post inauguration 2017-2018 for his dirty tricks and cover ups!
Michael Cohen called the FBI agents involved in criminal search warrants for his office, home and hotel room courteous, respectful and professional. Trump and cohorts called them Nazis and stormtroopers. They know their committed many criminal acts against Americans.
James Comey's response: "I know the New York FBI. There are no “stormtroopers” there; just a group of people devoted to the rule of law and the truth. Our country would be better off if our leaders tried to be like them, rather than comparing them to Nazis."
Update: Trump added to Giuliano's revelation, claiming that Stormy Daniels is an extortionist and Trump will sue her for damages against his (sinful, criminal, treasonous) reputation. More defamation against Daniels.
May 2: Trump fired his lead lawyer, replacing Ty Cobb with Bill Clinton's impeachment lawyer, Emmet Flood. (Clinton was impeached in 1998) Obviously, Trump sees impeachment in his crystal ball.
May 2: Like criminals do, Trump announced that the US justice system is rigged and he is about to break it.
May 1: Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's response to Trump and his congressional co-conspirators: "I can tell you that there have been people that have been making threats against me privately and publicly for some time, and I think they should understand by now the Department of Justice is not going to be extorted."
May 1: Trump sent his (armed?) bodyguard and a Trump attorney to raid the office of Trump's NY physician for 35 years to ROB records that belonged to the physician. A robbery directed by Trump! According to the physician, "They must have been here for 25 minutes or 30 minutes. It created a lot of chaos. (he felt) raped, frightened and sad. They barged through the back door, they terrified the secretary, they pushed aside the patient that was in there." Just another Trump crime.
May 1: Via his lawyers, Trump leaked questions from Robert Mueller, then called the leak "disgraceful" and claimed that there were no questions about Russia collusion (14 of 49 questions were about Russia collusion).
Update: Indeed, Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, wrote the questions after discussion with Mueller about possible topics of interest. Sekulow et al wanted to scare Trump about what he faces. Trump is such a liar and so guilty of crimes and treason his lawyers do not want him to testify about anything under oath.
April 30: As of today, Trump has lied 3001 times since taking office January 2017. Trump is the biggest liar in the world.
April 30: Another attack on US intelligence agencies who say the opposite and itching for war, Trump announced that Iran HAS an active nuclear weapon program. "These facts are consistent with what the United States has long known: Iran has a robust, clandestine nuclear weapons program that it has tried and failed to hide from the world and from its own people." False of course. But, it may come true when Trump delivers his promise to terminate the Iran nuclear agreement.
April 30: Dennis Rodman took credit for Trump's embrace of Kim Jong Un.
April 30: As hush money to disuade Michael Cohen, Trump's dirty personal lawyer, to lie for Trump, Trump illegally gave him $228,000 October 2017 to January 2018.
April 30: "He doesn't even understand what DACA is. He's an idiot. We've got to save him from himself." (White House Chief of Staff John Kelly about Trump)
April 28: The White House Correspondents Association celebrated the First Amendment and student journalists. Trump boycotted again, instead going to Michigan to raise money for himself and attack the First Amendment. And, to share his terror if the House of Representatives shifts to the Democrats, after which he predicts with guilty conscience that he will be impeached.
A nice event, though the last 'speaker', a comedian, acted like a comedian with vulgarity and mockery. While Trump and his staff were properly identified as liars, the comedian perhaps went to far for the important event, though reminding us that Trump mocks most Americans (especially the disabled, women, patriots of the Constitution, African Americans, Native Americans, Muslim Americans, educated Americans, national security professionals, and the FBI and DOJ) and billions around the world. On the other hand, the event's comedian showcased the First Amendment.
Trump attacked the comedian for using vugar words like Trump has yelled thousands of times in the White House. What the comedian said was simply out of place for this event. Trump, not the comedian, attacked women accusing him of sexual assault saying that they were too ugly for him, he only sexually assaults good looking women. He, not the comedian, attacked presidential candidate Carly Fiorina as being too ugly to vote for. He, not the comedian, attacked handicapped people. He, not the comedian, attacks the press, Muslims and Mexicans daily. He, not the comedian attacks US laws as the worst laws in the world and the US FBI/DOJ as corrupt. Trump, not the comedian, is disgraceful.
April 28: Trump attacked US national security again. This time, attacking Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, "Clapper lied about (fraudulent) Dossier leaks to CNN” @foxandfriends FoxNews He is a lying machine who now works for Fake News CNN"
CIA Director John Brennon responded, "Mr. Trump: Your hypocrisy knows no bounds. Jim Clapper is a man of integrity, honesty, ethics, & morality. You are not. Jim Clapper served his country for over a half century, including in Vietnam. You did not. By your words & behavior, you diminish the Office of the Presidency."
April 27: Trump got a 90-day delay in the Stormy Daniels litigation because Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, the mastermind of the fraud against Daniels, is suffering from 3 FBI raids AND, according to the judge, is likely to be indicted for crimes.
April 27: Trump announced that he single-handedly ended the 66-year-old Korean War. First, it has not ended. Second, even if it was, this would be like saying since the previous building developer did not complete the top floor of a 66 story building, getting only to 65, the builder of the 66th floor can take all credit for building the entire structure.
April 27: Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, bragged that he was part of the Russian mob.
Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. and others at Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential race, admitted that she was a informant for the Russian government.
April 26: Overwhelmed with crime, scandal, lies, sexual assault, malfeasance, corruption and treason, Trump gave his presidency an A+. Trump has instituted a dark swamp. Fox News found that 56% voters believe that Robert Mueller will report Trump crimes.
April 25: While Trump does not have the time to tell the truth, especially under oath because his lawyers believe he will lie abundantly, his lawyers informed a federal judge that he has all the time needed to review hundreds of thousands of documents that will show he conspired with Michael Cohen, Trump's personal attorney, to commit a range of crimes and treason. "Our client will make himself available, as needed, to aid in our privilege review on his behalf." Trump is desperate to derail criminal investigation of himself and Cohen. Trump is very afraid that the everyone will realize he is a fraud and traitor.
No wonder Trump fired him. James Comey described Trump perfectly during a town hall wherein college students asked the questions. James Comey observed that Trump is empty, desperate for affirmation and lacks the confidence to be humble. Trump does not make decisions on the basis of philosophical, religious or logical considerations, but simply to assuage the deficiencies of his own character and emotional makeup. "His only reference point is internal -- 'what will bring me what I need, what will fill this hole in me -- get me the affirmation I crave' -- that is deeply concerning. presidency." Trump does not honor American values and is morally unfit to be president. Comey added, '"I've been embarrassed and ashamed by the way the Republican party has abandoned one of the two things that led me to consider myself a Republican in the 1980s when Ronald Reagan was president. I was attracted by the notion that character matters and values matter most of all. That's where you start in evaluating a person, an entity or a country. What are their values? That's nonnegotiable. And second, strong national defense, which I'm still passionate about."
April 25: Trump says that taking the Fifth Amendment means you are guilty of crime. Today, Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, took the Fifth in the federal court litigation involving Stormy Daniels, Trump's sex friend. According to Trump, "The mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" Never before in our nation’s history has the attorney for the sitting President invoked the Fifth Amendment in connection with issues surrounding the President.
In contrast to a criminal case, in a civil case, eg the Stormy Daniels case, taking the Fifth Amendment can legally be interpreted to mean that you are guilty of crime.
April 24: Trump called North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, a "very honorable" person.
April 24: We now know why Trump nominvated his White House physician to be VA Secretary. Beyond saying that Trump had superior genes to the rest of us, enabling him to live more than twice as long as almost all of us, Trump's nominee was a drunk, threatened women employees, yelled often at work, distributed narcotics without medical purpose or prescription (called the 'candy man' in the White House), and created a hostile work environment. Concurrently with defending his nominee for never being a subject of official review, Trump handed that official review, sharply critical of his nominee, out to reporters. As usual, Trump cannot distinguish between fake and real news.
April 23: Trump has bought good media his entire career. He has a non-ending supply of tabloid noise. He supplies favors. He brings them into his inner circle. He is still doing this now. For example, Sean Hannity talks to Trump often and last week was again at the White House for dinner. Trump provides him lawyers, eg Michael Cohen. And, Trump is forwarding millions of dollars of taxpayer funds into Hannity's side business of buying foreclosed properties across the US ranging from large mansions to low-income rentals. The relationship is going to be far more extensive than Mr. Hannity has led his FoxNews viewers to believe. Corruption is everywhere for Trump
April 22: Mostly true. "WASHINGTON -- Congressional Republicans and conservative leaders rallied around President Trump Friday, attempting to minimize political damage after Trump shot down a man in the middle of Fifth Avenue in New York City. “I’m not going to put myself in the position of having to respond to every presidential shooting,” House Speaker Paul Ryan said in a hastily called press conference at the Capitol, surrounded by members of his leadership team. “I just happen to think it’s important to keep our focus where it belongs, on enacting a conservative, pro-growth agenda that regular Americans care about, such as tax cuts for the rich and the repeal of Medicare.” Privately, however, at least some Republican members expressed concern about the long-term political impact of such incidents, especially with midterms looming in less than seven months. “I think that each elected Republican has to make a series of decisions, day in and day out, about whether they find the president's conduct acceptable and to what extent it's appropriate to work with him,” as one frustrated GOP congressman put it, demanding anonymity so he could speak freely. “This shooting is fine for Trump -- he’s not on the ballot this fall -- but he’s putting the rest of us in a really tough position.” The reaction was similar among Senate Republicans. “I think we should criticize the president when he’s done something wrong, and applaud him when he’s done something right,” said U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, who nonetheless refused to condemn the shooting directly. “The president and I are scheduled to play golf together next week,” Graham said. “If I have concerns -- and I’m not saying I do -- I think it’s more appropriate to express them to the president in private.” Others, however, were more blunt. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona quickly introduced a resolution warning the president of potential censure should he again pull out a gun and shoot somebody. They withdrew that measure after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made it clear that he would not bring it to a floor vote, calling it “divisive”and “unnecessary.” “I’ve been assured by people in the White House that there are no plans to shoot anybody else, at least not at this point,” McConnell said. The victim, attorney Michael Avenatti, was shot twice in the back as he left the studios of NBC News at Rockefeller Center after an interview. At a regularly scheduled White House press briefing Thursday, spokesperson Sarah Sanders referred all questions about the shooting to the president’s private attorneys. “Look, I know you folks in the mainstream media are looking for every opportunity to criticize this president, who continues to accomplish amazing things for the American people,” Sanders said. “The economy is stronger than it’s been in ages, ISIS is on the run, the remaking of the judiciary. That’s all far more important than any distractions the media likes to throw out there.” Sanders also refused to rule out the possibility of Trump issuing an immediate pardon for himself, as first proposed by famed legal scholar Alan Dershowitz. Despite network TV video of Trump emerging from the presidential limousine, gun in hand, other prominent Trump supporters are questioning whether the shooting occurred at all. Fox News host Sean Hannity used his entire Thursday night segment to explore secret links between Hillary Clinton and Avennati, describing the attorney as a “paid crisis actor” as well as “a clear descendant of immigrants.” According to Hannity, the attack has all the earmarks of a “false flag” operation choreographed by the FBI. “This is the deep state at work, undermining our democracy, my friends,” Hannity told his audience. “This is an unelected part of your government, looking to overturn a duly elected president. Don’t think this a coincidence -- it is the biggest scandal in American history.” According to an overnight Quinnipiac poll, 68 percent of Republicans now agree that the shooting never happened. A similar poll from Rasmussen put the number at 93 percent." (Jay Bookman)
On April 13, Trump again proved that he is a traitor against America. He pardoned Scooter Libby, who masterminded a fraudulent excuse to enter into the Iraq War in 2003 on behalf of VP Dick Cheney. Libby also obstructed justice and lied under oath, the favorite crimes of Trump associates. Libby also trashed Valerie Plame Wilson and her family (Plame was a covert CIA operative before being illegally revealed to cover up his and Cheney's disastrous war) and caused the death of thousands of American soldiers and innocent Iraqis based on a fraud. Trump's pardon of Libby was illicit and profoundly un-American, a ploy to distract from his crimes, his violations of the US Constitution and his treason. Shame on anyone who supports Libby's pardon or Trump's treason. Daily, Trump hurts America.
"But what gets lost in this assessment is why Libby was convicted of perjury and obstruction of justice in the first place, and why it matters today. In 2003, my husband, Joe Wilson, a former U.S. ambassador, wrote an op-ed in the New York Times criticizing the Bush White House’s central premise for the invasion of Iraq: Saddam Hussein represented an imminent nuclear threat. Joe wrote that the intelligence had been distorted and “cherry-picked” in an attempt to sell the war to the American people. Shortly afterward, senior White House officials betrayed my identity to various media sources. I was at the time a covert CIA ops officer. Joe and I were subjected to years of character assassination. Scooter Libby was the only administration aide indicted in connection with the leak of my identity, but the special prosecutor on the case, Patrick Fitzgerald, said at the conclusion of the trial that there was “a cloud over the office of the vice president.” Our national security is at serious risk when there is daylight and distrust between the president and the CIA. When President-elect Trump compared the intelligence community to Nazi Germany, he cast doubt over the future of his relationship with its hard-working and patriotic members. His chaotic presidency has exposed deep erosion in our democracy; the shoreline has vanished much faster than most of us ever imagined. In all the noise, it’s become increasingly difficult to separate issues that matter from those that are ephemeral. The pardon of Scooter Libby, the most senior aide to the vice president, who received a fair trial before an exacting trial judge and jury and was found guilty of the crimes of which he was accused, matters deeply." (Valerie Plame Wilson)
Now, under Trump, the White House attacks the FBI, DOJ and national intelligence community to cover up serious crimes.
April 20: In a federal court today (the Stormy Daniels case), Michael Cohen's own lawyer told the federal judge that Cohen is about to be indicted for crimes with Trump. Trump is terrified that Cohen will make a deal to avoid lengthy jail time by Cohen informing prosecutor about Trump's own crimes.
April 20: The Democratic National Committee, one of the targets of Russia's cyberwarfare, filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the Russian government, the Trump campaign, Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, Jared Kushner, Roger Stone, the WikiLeaks organization and others alleging a far-reaching conspiracy to disrupt the 2016 campaign and tilt the election to Donald Trump. “During the 2016 presidential campaign, Russia launched an all-out assault on our democracy, and it found a willing and active partner in Donald Trump’s campaign. This constituted an act of unprecedented treachery: the campaign of a nominee for President of the United States in league with a hostile foreign power to bolster its own chance to win the presidency,” DNC Chairman Tom Perez said. (The Washington Post)
"In the Trump campaign, Russia found a willing and active partner in this effort. In 2016, individuals tied to the Kremlin notified the Trump campaign that Russia intended to interfere with our democracy. Through multiple meetings, emails, and other communications, these Russian agents made clear that their government supported Trump and was prepared to use stolen emails and other information to damage his opponent and the Democratic party. Rather than report these repeated messages that Russia intended to interfere with U.S. elections, the Trump Campaign and its agents gleefully welcomed Russia's help. Indeed, the Trump Campaign solicited Russia's illegal assistance, and maintained secret communications with individuals tied to the Russian government, including one of the intelligence agencies responsible for attacking the DNC. Rather than report these repeated messages that Russia intended to interfere with U.S. elections, the Trump Campaign and its agents gleefully welcomed Russia's help. Indeed, the Trump Campaign solicited Russia's illegal assistance, and maintained secret communications with individuals tied to the Russian government, including one of the intelligence agencies responsible for attacking the DNC. The Trump Campaign was a Racketeering Enterprise (in RICO conspiracy with all of the defendants)." (from the lawsuit)
Bravo. If Republican legislators were not part of the conspiracy, they would have joined the DNC's lawsuit.
Trump insists that there was a conspiracy to get him elected and he despises DOJ, FBI, national security agencies, Democrats and Hillary Clinton for their role. They even colluded with Russa says Trump. 'We say, BS.'
April 19: Through his congressional co-conspirators with Russia to degrade DOJ/FBI, Trump forced the release of the 'Comey memos' (which were written months before his surprise firing by Trump) to interfere with an active DOJ/FBI investigation into Russia's election interference in 2016. They leaked them to the press, who they claim they hate, within minutes of receiving them. Backfired. They confirm everything Comey has said, adding that Trump loves prostitutes (especially after Putin told Trump that Russia has the most beautiful) and hates FBI acting/assistant director Andrew McCabe, who Trump fired and is now trying to send to jail. Trump also wanted to jail reporters. Never did Trump discuss what he should have – protection of the US against Russian interference.
April 19: Trump hired the mastermind of his Muslim Ban, Rudy Giuliani, to join his 'legal' team to derail investigation of Russia's election interference and Trump's crimes and treason.
April 19: Jay Goldberg, an attorney for Trump for 20 years, told Trump that Michael Cohen is guilty of serious crimes and to avoid going to prison for decades will supply incriminating facts about Trump to criminal prosecutors.
April 19: Trump told the DOJ to prosecute and jail the Assistant Director of the FBI he fired, Andrew McCabe. Trump's aim is to derail Mueller's investigation by jailing a witness in that investigation.
April 19: From the 'Steele dossier': "Speaking in confidence to a longstanding compatriot friend in mid-October 2016, a Kremlin insider highlighted the importance of Republican presidential candidate Donald TRUMP’s lawyer, Michael COHEN, in the ongoing secret liaison relationship between the New York tycoon’s campaign and the Russian leadership. According to the Kremlin insider, COHEN now was heavily engaged in a cover up and damage limitation operation in the attempt to prevent the full details of TRUMP’s relationship with Russia being exposed. In pursuit of this aim, COHEN had met secretly with several Russian Presidential Administration (PA) Legal Department officials in an EU country in August 2016. The immediate issues had been to contain further scandals involving MANNAFORT’s commercial and political role in Russia/Ukraine and to limit the damage arising from exposure of former TRUMP foreign policy advisor, Carter PAGE’s secret meetings with Russian leadership figures in Moscow the previous month. The overall objective had been "to sweep it all under the carpet and make sure no connections could be fully established or proven.""
Today, Cohen dropped his lawsuits against the assembler of the 'Steele dossier' and the media outlet that published it. Hard to fight truth for Cohen.
April 19: This is who Trump claims is an enemy of the US. "Robert S. Mueller III doesn’t seek deferments. After a classmate died in Vietnam, this well-to-do Princeton athlete traded his lacrosse stick for a military rifle and volunteered for war. He returned with a Bronze Star, a Purple Heart and a gunshot wound. When his 10-year term as FBI director expired, a notoriously gridlocked Congress changed the law—just for him—and, once again, Mueller forfeited comfort for continued service. To millions, the special counsel is either a political savior or berserk villain. He is neither. He’s a by-the-book lawman who, with nothing to prove and a lifetime of service behind him, agreed to lead the most fraught, least understood, highest-stakes investigation of our time." (Preet Bharara)
Trump claims that James Comey is a slime ball for not abandoning the US to pledge illicit loyalty to Trump. "We are experiencing a dangerous time in our country, with a political environment where basic facts are disputed, fundamental truth is questioned, lying is normalized, and unethical behavior is ignored, excused, or rewarded. Without a fundamental commitment to truth – especially in our public institutions and those who lead them – we are lost. Lying about things, large and small, in service to some warped code of loyalty. Donald Trump's presidency threatens much of what is good in this nation. This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values." (James Comey in his book A Higher Loyalty)
April 18: "Any Republican senator that hasn’t been conflicted over this presidency is either comatose or is pretty useless in their blindness." (Sen. Bob Corker)
April 18: October 2016, Trump said about James Comey, "it took a lot of guts" for him to decide the agency should review new evidence regarding Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server at the State Department. What he did, he brought back his reputation. He brought it back. What he did was the right thing." That was then. Since, he has fired Comey attempting to end investigation into his collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice and financial crimes. Trump also told Russian spies IN the Oval Office, that his firing of Comey would make their lives better. Today, Trump called Comey, "Slippery... the worst FBI Director in history." What a difference several indictments and many more to come can make.
April 18: James Comey left the Republican Party over Trump. "I just think they've lost their way and I can't be associated with it. These people don't represent anything that I believe in."
April 18: Stormy Daniels kept Trump awake last night. Early today, Trump twittered an attack. In turn, Daniels' attorney replied, "In my experience, there is nothing better in litigation than having a completely unhinged, undisciplined opponent who is prone to shooting himself in the foot. Always leads to BIGLY problems…like new claims (i.e. defamation)."
April 16: Yesterday, Trump announced new sanctions against Russia. But, then Vladimir Putin said no. Today, Trump canceled the new sanctions.
Trump has reduced the presidency to a cry baby and criminal.
April 15: "It tells you something about the chaos engulfing the Trump administration that the U.S. air strikes on Syria had to jostle for public attention with the voluminous news of the president’s scandals. But it’s hard to imagine that Trump, who in the best of times has the attention span of a hyperactive 8-year-old, can focus on strategy for Syria amid the far more pressing threats that he faces from an ever-expanding criminal investigation. If the United States had a parliamentary government, Congress could pass a motion of “no confidence,” thus allowing Trump to devote 100 percent of his attention to fighting the multiplying charges against him without the distractions of running the government. Instead, we must hope that the institutions of the U.S. government are strong enough to function more or less on autopilot while Trump is consumed by the wages of his own sins." (Max Boot, actual Republican)
When your lawyers need lawyers, it’s usually a bad sign. When your lawyers have their offices and homes raided, it’s a really bad sign.
Trump's Conspiracy of Democrats is run ENTIRELY by Republicans. Robert Mueller—Republican , Attorney General—Republican , FBI Director—Republican , DAG Rosenstein—Republican , (4) FISA Judges—Republicans , Senate—Republican, House—Republican , Acting US Atty SDNY—Republican.
April 14: 245 former DOJ officials have already signed it. "We, the undersigned, are proud alumni of the United States Department of Justice. We served this institution out of a commitment to the founding American principles that our democratic republic depends upon the rule of law, that the law must be applied equally, and that no one is above the law. Many of us served with Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein. We are therefore deeply disturbed by the attacks that have been levied against the good men and women of the Department. Not only is it an insult to their public service, but any attempt to corrupt or undermine the even-handed application of the rule of law threatens the foundation of our Republic."
While Trump called James Comey "a proven LEAKER & LIAR...a weak and untruthful slime ball," it is Trump who is so (white collar criminals always blame enforcers of laws and ethics with their own traits).
"I have a special practice. I handle one client." (From Don Corleone's lawyer in the Godfather movie) Michael Cohen for Trump.
April 13: Spending over $100 million Trump declared victory against an adversary who didn't fight back. After giving Syria a week to empty the buildings, Trump ordered their destruction, boasting "Mission Accomplished." Actually, the mission has a long way to go. Russia and the rest of the world marvel at Trump's weakness.
There were no chemical weapons where Trump bombed! Trump says, "Mission Accomplished." Weak.
April 13. Trump and Michael Cohen have a business together. Selling Nondisclosure agreements, fake names and defense lawyers for women having sex affairs. Lazy plan though. They use the same agreement, fake names and lawyer for the women. For example, Trump had sex affairs with Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, paying them $130,000 and $150,000 respectively. Elliott Broidy, Cohen's fellow co-chair at the RNC, had a sex affair with a Playboy model; Cohen arranged paying her $1.6 million and required abortion of the resulting baby. For all three cases, Trump/Broidy were called David Davidson, the women were called Peggy Peterson in the bogus agreements and their lawyer, assigned by Cohen, had the real name of Kieth Davidson.
April 13: In 2013, Trump tweeted "The President must get Congressional approval before attacking Syria-big mistake if he does not! What will we get for bombing Syria besides more debt and a possible long term conflict? Obama needs Congressional approval." Tonight, Trump bombed Syria. Weak.
April 13: "If he had been a piece of crap from the beginning, it wouldn’t be so bad. We’ve made so many sacrifices and now he’s crapping all over us. It makes me sick. Trump’s now a fraud. Fuck Trump." (Alex Jones, InfoWars)
Indictments against Trump conspirators, convictions against Trump conspirators, Robert Mueller, the FBI, US Attorneys and Stormy Daniels are draining Trump's swamp.
April 13: Two forms of Trump witness tampering today. First, he called the target of intensive criminal investigation, Michael Cohen....hinting don't worry, I'll get you off, don't talk (Monday, dozens of FBI agents served several search warrants against Cohen, producing as many as millions of documents according to Cohen). Second, out of the blue, Trump pardoned Scooter Libby (and simultaneously atttacked the CIA, FBI and DOJ) for his 2007 conviction for obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI (in connection with the criminal leak of a CIA officer’s identity.), the same crimes Trump's associates have been indicted for, hinting don't worry, I'll get you off....don't talk. Pardoning a criminal to evade prosecution against your your own crimes IS A CRIME.
Trump sees the criminal investigation and search warrants against Cohen as more problematic that Robert Mueller's investigations in Trump's conspiracy with Russia, money laundering, tax evasion, and obstruction of justice.
April 13: "Your kakistocracy is collapsing after its lamentable journey. As the greatest Nation history has known, we have the opportunity to emerge from this nightmare stronger & more committed to ensuring a better life for all Americans, including those you have so tragically deceived." (CIA Director John Brennan)
A kakistocracy is a system of government which is run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens.
April 13: James Comey is speaking. Trump, he says, reminded him of a mafia crime boss like the ones he prosecuted during his FBI career. He was engrossed by the possible video of him with prostitutes in Moscow urinating on the bed President Obama and his wife used. Comey did not know if this story was true or false. (what if there is a video held by Vladimir Putin?) Trump had no interest in Russia's attack against the US other than how to spin it to his favor. “He (John Kelly, now Chief of Staff for Trump) said he was sick about my firing and that he intended to quit in protest. He said he didn’t want to work for dishonorable people who would treat someone like me in such a manner. I urged Kelly not to do that, arguing that the country needed principled people around this president. Especially this president.” Comey paints a devastating portrait of a president who built “a cocoon of alternative reality that he was busily wrapping around all of us.” This President is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values. His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty. Comey describes Trump as a congenital liar and unethical leader, devoid of human emotion and driven by personal ego. Comey also ruminates on the psychology of liars in an apparent nod to the current occupant of the Oval Office. “They lose the ability to distinguish between what’s true and what’s not. They surround themselves with other liars. . . . Perks and access are given to those willing to lie and tolerate lies. This creates a culture, which becomes an entire way of life.”
Trump's response: "James Comey is a proven LEAKER & LIAR (False). Virtually everyone in Washington thought he should be fired for the terrible job he did-until he was, in fact, fired (False). He leaked CLASSIFIED information (False), for which he should be prosecuted. He lied to Congress under OATH (False). He is a weak and untruthful slime ball who was, as time has proven, a terrible Director of the FBI (False). It was my great honor to fire James Comey!" Trump never tells the truth and always obstructs justice and US safety.
April 12: During the campaign, Trump famously boasted, "If you are not guilty of a crime, what do you need immunity for? The mob takes the Fifth Amendment. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?" Many times since, Trumps said he would testify under oath with Robert Mueller. But, that was until a few days ago, when dozens of FBI agents, authorized by a federal judge, raided the office, home and hotel of Michael Cohen, Trump's fix-it 'lawyer' usually called Trump's consigliere (a Godfather movie reference for the layer for Mafia Don Corleone. Cohen called himself Ray Donovan, a reference to the movie fix-it lawyer who arranges bribes, payoffs, threats, and other shady activities to ensure the outcome desired by the client. Today, Trump made it known he would not testify. Also Today, Michael Cohen filed an emergency motion with the federal judge of the Stormy Daniels' litigation, seeking immediate cessation of the litigation between Stormy Daniels and Cohen/Trump because Cohen will plead the Fifth Amendment and not testify in the case for fea of self incrimination of crimes for which he is being investigated. Trump and Cohen have revealed themselves to be heads of a mob family, just as described by FBI Director James Comey, who sees Trump as "a mob boss" for his broadcast interview on ABC this coming Sunday. And, last night, Trump advertised Sean Hannity's show wherein James Comey, Robert Mueller and Hillary Clinton were portrayed as heads of their own (fictional) crime families. Alan Dershowitz argued that a special counsel (eg, Robert Mueller) "can find evidence to create or manufacture crimes against anybody." Newt Gingrich portrayed Robert Mueller and the FBI as Nazis. Joe diGenova said "James Comey is a dirty cop."
Trump is the leading actor of a new dystopian movie, 'Godfather IV', wherein Trump sees the FBI, DOJ, US Attorneys, judges and juries as criminal empires. As his own self-styled 'godfather', Trump is orchestrating his criminal and treasonous conspiracy against FBI, DOJ, the courts and the Constitution deploying Vladimir Putin, Fox News, InfoWars, Breitbart, elected Republicans and discredited lawyers and analysts.
Also revealed today, another hush agreement/ payoff to hide another Trump sex scandal. The doorman for Trump's building was paid $30,000 to not discuss that Trump fathered a child with one of his housekeepers.
April 11: By tweet, Trump waged war against Russian troops in Syria, bragging that he will be sending "nice, new and smart" missiles to bomb them. Of course, Russian troops might fire back.
Trump attacked Presidents George Bush and Barrack Obama for discussing their military plans. Trump said it was stupid to do what he is now doing.
Update: The Dept. of Defense said not so fast, there is not war plan.
April 9: Although attorneys typically get away with serious crimes, hiding them behind attorney-client 'privilege', the FBI/DOJ raided Trump's longtime mafia-like attorney, Michel Cohen. Documents, tax/business/ bank records, computers, phones and emails were removed by FBI agents. FBI's raids, surprise raids because FBI/DOJ/Court were concerned about crimes by Cohen and his destruction of evidence, at Cohen's office across the street from Trump Tower, his home and at his hotel were approved by a federal judge and the highest levels of the FBI and DOJ. At least some of the documents pertained to Stormy Daniels, Trump's porn-star sex partner, as well as communications of crime between Trump and Cohen.
There was not such a raid against Nixon lawyers! Raiding the office/home of an attorney for the president has never been done before in US history. Trump is that dirty.
Trump's response. "I just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys. It’s a disgraceful situation. I have this witch hunt constantly going on. It’s an attack on on our country...what we all stand for. The Attorney General made a huge mistake." Trump said, "they were all Democrats," referring to those who approved the stunning raid, all of whom were Republicans and appointed to their position by Trump (AG Jeff Sessions, AAG Rod Rosenstein, FBI Director Christopher Wray, US Attorney Geoffrey Berman, among others). More obstruction of justice from Trump. (White House staff reported that Trump was "glued to the television." He had to be watching CNN and/or MSNBC, stations he says he does not watch, because Fox News barely covered the historical raid.)
Question, Was Cohen destroying documents last week in Trump Tower and the fire got out of control?
April 8: A year ago, deluged with bad news, Trump ordered a PR-stunt military attack in Syria. This year, there have been 8 incidents of chemical warfare bombs against Syrian civilians. Trump's stunt was weak and a failure. In the next day or two, Trump will likely perform another diversionary stunt against Syria.
April 8: "Trump last week signaled to the world that the United States would prematurely withdraw from Syria. Bashar Assad and his Russian and Iranian backers have heard him, and emboldened by American inaction, Assad has reportedly launched another chemical attack against innocent men, women and children, this time in Douma." (Senator John McCain)
Like Trump says about true events, Russia says that the chemical attack that killed dozens, including 20+ children, is 'fake new's, it never happened. In fact, it did.
April 7: One died in the second fire in Trump Tower. Trump says, fake news. His tower was "well built." However, he forgot to put fire sprinklers in the building.
Maybe burning incriminating documents got out of control.
April 6: Trump is now established to be the most corrupt government official in the world. Several examples of corruption are recognized daily. Trump and his family are bilking taxpayers and foreign governments for millions of dollars and massive waste, fraud and abuse embedded into US government agencies. Criminal and constitutional violations abound. Trump is at war with Muslims, North Korea, Iran, countries refusing to load hundreds of millions to his son-in-law Jared Kushner, Mexico, US international trade, students, women, US businesses (eg, CNN, Amazon, Boeing, Apple) and anyone now a white supremacist. Trump White House and Campaign top officials have been indicted for conspiracy against the US, money laundering and lying to the FBI about their corruption (some have already pleaded guilty to crimes). Trump is hiring corrupt lobbyists to fire and damage government employees and derail critical government programs. Trump's Cabinet is best known as a gang of corruption. Trump is violating his oath to preserve, protect and defend the US. Trump is the target of dozens of lawsuits, including from a porn star, Playboy model, government ethics and civil liberties organizations, businesses and states for fraud and crimes. To cover up his corruption, Trump deploys non-stop chaos and controversy.
April 6: "It’s been a year since I testified to the Senate Select Intelligence Committee on Russian interference in the presidential election of 2016. The revelations from Robert Mueller’s indictments since then have provided so much clarity on how Russia interfered in our democracy — yet Americans seem more confused about the question of possible collusion with Russia. That is, in a way, by design — Russia’s design. Its infiltration and influence on America is difficult to understand, even with vastly more detail about Russia’s influence efforts. A standard Russian approach would have been to influence Mr. Trump through surrogates like Mr. Gates and Paul Manafort rather than through direct command through an individual — in this case, the candidate and then president. Russian intelligence develops options and pathways over many years; as objectives arise — like the election of Mr. Trump — they focus and engage all available touch points. Russia’s efforts to influence, known by the Kremlin moniker Active Measures, did not seek a single pathway into the Trump team. Instead, they targeted a wide spectrum of influential Americans to subtly nudge their preferred policy into the mainstream and sideline foreign opponents. Russian intelligence services establish campaign objectives and compromise foreign targets through espionage, but their principal focus is to recruit agents of influence. Typically, the Kremlin deploys layers of surrogates and proxies offering business inducements, information or threatened reprisals that can individually be explained away by coincidence while masking the strings and guiding hands of the Kremlin’s puppet masters and their objectives. When called upon by the Kremlin, oligarchs, contractors, criminals and spies (current or former) all provide levers for advancing President Vladimir Putin’s assault on democracies. In Trump and his campaign, Mr. Putin spotted a golden opportunity — an easily ingratiated celebrity motivated by fame and fortune, a foreign policy novice surrounded by unscreened opportunists open to manipulation and unaware of Russia’s long run game of subversion. Mr. Putin has succeeded where his Soviet forefathers failed by leveraging money and cyberspace to subtly infiltrate and influence Americans while maintaining plausible deniability of their efforts. And the Kremlin’s ground game “cut outs” — intermediaries who facilitate communication between agents — conducted a more complex game. Evidence of Russia’s intent to interfere in the election is overwhelming, and documentation of Trump campaign members’ collusion not only exists but is growing. Trump campaign members certainly colluded with Russian influence efforts, some willingly, some possibly knowingly. The president denies the Kremlin’s hand, either still unaware or in denial of being manipulated by Mr. Putin’s minions. For Mr. Putin, it’s likely everything he hoped for — America riddled with political infighting and mired in investigations, a weakened NATO alliance vulnerable to aggression and a United States president seeking his adoration, obstinate and ignorant of the great caper the Kremlin just orchestrated. The problem for the president is that ignorance is not immunity. The problem for America is that ignorance of Russian interference is vulnerability." (Clint Watts (@selectedwisdom) is the Robert A. Fox fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, a former F.B.I. special agent and author of the forthcoming book “Messing With The Enemy: Surviving in a Social Media World of Hackers, Terrorists, Russians and Fake News.”)
April 5: Trump announced that Hispanic immigrants have caused the biggest epidemic of rape in history. And, they have voted illegally millions of times. Both false, of course. Nevertheless, Trump is sending armed troops to the US border with Mexico to shoot and kill, ie murder innocent people like his favorite villains do.
April 5: Vindictiveness. Muslim ban. War with Mexicans. Attack NATO. Attack Germany and England. Blame African Americans. Call women horrible and liars and too fat or ugly to sexually assault. Defend white supremacists and Nazis. Use government against US companies. Demean the press. Treat truth as immoral. Institute corruption as US policy. Destroy the environment. End immigration except for white people. Dismiss worker safety. Threaten aircraft manufacturers. Break health care system. Break government agencies. Promote guns in schools and military guns on our streets. Create a trade war. Hire lobbyists. Obsess with Obama. Prefer Russia over America. Lie about everything. Trump is very busy.
April 4: What a ripoff. Trump made a huge deal about a glorious wall cutting off Mexico from the US. It was going to be big and deserve to have his gold name on it. It got 10 feet higher dozens of times. Today, through the Secretary of Homeland Security, Trump says repairs to existing wall/fences suffices to be called his new wall. Try fixing up your 20 year old car and selling it as new.
April 4: General HR McMaster fired for his views. "We have failed to impose sufficient costs. The Kremlin's confidence is growing. Russia has used old and new forms of aggression to undermine our open societies."
April 3: Another Trump war is advancing. Trump started it by issuing tariffs on steel and aluminum. China fired back, issuing tariffs on a range of products. Today, Trump listed 1,300 more Chinese products for tariffs. In response, China's state-run Xinhua news agency reported that the Commerce Ministry strongly condemned the new penalties on certain Chinese products exported to the U.S. and was ready to take retaliatory actions. (Update: The Chinese Ministry of Commerce on Wednesday said it plans to impose a 25% tariff on $50 billion worth of US exports. The 106 affected products will also include soybeans and chemicals.)
April 3: To enhance Russia's involvement in Syria, Trump announced that he is directing the Dept. of Defense to withdraw from Syria and the battle against ISIS there.
April 3: Considering Mexico a larger threat than Russia and ISIS, Trump is sending, illegally and without funding, the US military to the US border with Mexico. Tanks, fighter jets, nuclear weapons too? When his useless $30 billion wall is built, the military will be withdrawn says Trump. What an insult to the US military.
Trump wants the southern border of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California to be the front line of Trump's illegal new war.
April 3: Last week, Trump tried to show that he was tough on Russia, expelling 60 diplomats/spies. However, he approved their replacement with 60 new spies. Trump fakery at it again.
April 3: Demonstrating their smallness, Trump supporters and white evangelicals attack children whose classmates were murdered, women who were sexually assaulted and African Amerians protesting the murder of their family members. Trump and his supporters despise Americans.
April 2: Trump's attack on Amazon.com because its owner also owns The Washington Post caused Amazon.com's market value to decline $36 billion. Trump enjoys his ability to fraudulently use his office to damage those he sees as enemies (anyone that tells the truth). Vendettas and revenge have long been a Trump card.
Amazon's owner should buy Twitter and delete Trump's account.
Trump's vendetta is the biggest securities fraud (and election fraud) in world history.
April 2: Trump again attacked the FBI and DOJ. According to Trump, they are "An embarrassment to our country!"
Trump illicitly fired FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe 26 hours before his retirement. In 2 days, McCabe surpassed his fundraising goal of $150,000, raising – in 2 days – over $500,000.
From Andrew McCabe's wife, an emergency-room pediatrician: "After the 2016 election, I thought for a while that it was all over — at least now that President-elect Trump won, he would stop coming after us. How naive that was. After then-FBI Director James B. Comey was fired, we knew that Andrew could be the next target of the president’s wrath. Then the president started tweeting about how the contributions to my campaign made it clear that Andrew (and all the senior leadership at the FBI) were corrupt and that he should be removed. It went one step further in the days before Christmas, when the president made threats related to my husband’s retirement. To have my personal reputation and integrity and those of my family attacked this way is beyond horrible. It feels awful every day. It keeps me up nights. I made the decision to run for office because I was trying to help people. Instead, it turned into something that was used to attack our family, my husband’s career and the entire FBI." Trump is as scummy as it gets.
April 2: A year ago, Trump invited Russian spies into the Oval Office to boast that he fired FBI Director James Comey to make their lives easier. Russia announced today that Trump invited Vladimir Putin to the White House. Both events were censored from the US press.
April 2: "My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy. I’ve grabbed all the money I could get. I’m so greedy." (Trump in 2016) His ongoing corruption should be no surprise. Trump promised to make everyone rich, and his voters can see little else. They exonerate his sexual assaults, serial adultery, racism, his life of cheating and treason in favor of his lie to make them rich. They want to emulate Trump, the most powerful role model of their lives. Someday, it will sink in that Trump's tax cut, immorality and greed will cost them dearly, costing them, their children, their health and America many times more than a puny tax cut.
"He was a brilliant businessman, or at least starred in a television show as one. Since Trump took office, his pledge to ignore his own interests has been almost forgotten, lost in a disorienting hurricane of endless news. For all the mystery still surrounding the Russia investigation, for instance, it is already clear that the narrative revolves around a lust (and desperation) for money. Having burned enough American banks throughout his career that he could not obtain capital through conventional, legitimate channels, Trump turned to Russian sources, who typically have an ulterior political motive. The virtue of bribery is a subject of genuine conviction for Trump, whose entrée to politics came via transactional relationships with New York politicians as well as Mafia figures. Trump once called the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, which bars American corporations from engaging in bribery, a “ridiculous” and “horrible” law. Enforcement of this law has plummeted under his administration. Lobbyists are seeded in every agency, “regulating” their former employers and designing rules that favor bosses over employees and business owners over consumers. The problem of former government officials’ being paid by foreign governments has been superseded by the far larger problem of current government officials’ being paid by foreign governments. Trump represented himself as a rich man feared by the business elite. He had spent much of his life buying off politicians and exploiting the system, so he knew how the system worked and could exploit that knowledge on behalf of the people. In fact, his experiences with bribery opened his eyes to what further extortion might be possible. Trump was never looking to blow up the system. He was simply casing the joint. More than at any time in history, the president of the United States is actively using the power and prestige of his office to line his own pockets: landing loans for his businesses, steering wealthy buyers to his condos, securing cheap foreign labor for his resorts, preserving federal subsidies for his housing projects, easing regulations on his golf courses, licensing his name to overseas projects, even peddling coffee mugs and shot glasses bearing the presidential seal. For Trump, whose business revolves around the marketability of his name, there has proved to be no public policy too big, and no private opportunity too crass, to exploit for personal profit." (New York magazine)
April 1: For a cameo appearance in front of a church this Easter Sunday, Trump trumpeted his hate for Mexicans and Americans. Seven months ago, Trump singlehandedly crushed DACA but now blames Americans. Every time Trump speaks he displays his hate machine.
April 1: It's been 3 years of Trump hate, lies, obstruction of justice, bigotry, chaos, name calling, a horrible role model, war mongering, capitulation to and conspiracy with Russia, damaging national security, threatening US allies, stories of sexual assault, mismanagement and incompetence, corruption, staff turnover, empty promises, obscenity, fraud, tax cheating, money laundering, assault on education, attacking free speech and the press, violating the US Constitution, violating oath of office to protect and defend the US, and demeaning the US and presidency. National debt has exploded. Health costs are increasing while health care is eroding. Trump is making Russia the lead power in the world, encouraging its election interference in democracies, especially the US, manipulation of the executive and legislative branches of US government, development of new missiles and nuclear weapons, cyber attacks of US businesses and schools, and assuming leadership in the mid-East. A third of voters love it. Truth is now lies, and lies are now truth. Fakery is now real. Lack of competence is now genius. They like the Jerry Springer show running the government and ruining our future. They consider the Roseanne TV show more accurate than CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, PBS, NPR, NY Times, Washington Post....ie all media not endorsed by Trump (Trump endorses Fox News, Info Wars, Breitbart and white supremacist outlets). They see fictional 'survivor' and 'reality' TV shows as documentaries. They gorge themselves on conspiracy theories. They endorse Trump's crimes and corruption, grotesquely abusing taxpayer funds for personal benefit and marketing. They enjoy Trump's damage to the environment and our health and to US government, military, national security, law enforcement, religious and educational institutions. The good news: our children, with the most to lose, are rising.
March 29: Trump severely attacked HIS Dept. of Veterans Affairs (Trump has been in charge for 14 months). Not only did he replace its Secretary with someone having no competence for the job, Trump called his department's employees"sadists." Employees Trump controls. A sad assault by Trump on our veterans, an organization of nearly 400,000 employees and $200 billion budget. Trump's turmoil will injure many lives.
Trump has an idea to damage the Dept. of Defense. Take money needed for soldiers and move into paying for Trump's ridiculous readily-bypassable wall.
March 28: We now know that Trump's campaign (most notably its Chairman, Deputy Chairman and primary rally spokesman – Manafort, Gates, Flynn – among many others) was in repeated contact with Russian spies to achieve election November 2016. This is criminal conspiracy and treason. We also know that Trump was discussing pardons from criminal acts with Manafort, Gates and Flynn while they were testifying to the grand jury to lie to or withhold evidence from the grand jury. This is obstruction of justice. (Trump ordered White House Counsel Dan McGahn to fire Robert Mueller June 2017, though McGahn refused. Because this was another obstruction of justice by Trump, McGahn reported Trump's order to Mueller November 2017. January 2018, Trump ordered McGahn to deny the June 2017 order to obstruct justice. Again, McGahn refused. ) Examples of conspiracy and obstruction are far wider than these already dramatic findings.
A NY federal judge has ruled that a lawsuit against Trump for sexual assault can proceed, including sworn deposition by Trump. A separate lawsuit against Trump from a porn star paid $130,000 hush money is underway as well; a federal court hearing is scheduled April 30 that may permit this lawsuit to proceed, including sworn deposition by Trump. A third lawsuit from a Playboy model has also been filed which may also permit sworn deposition by Trump. Furthermore, a Maryland federal lawsuit pertaining to Trump's violation of the US Constitution's emoluments clause has been given judge approval by the judge to proceed, which may also permit sworn deposition by Trump. Last but not least, Trump will likely testify under oath before Robert Mueller and possibly the grand jury(s) examining Russia's interference into the 2016 election and conspiracy, money laundering and obstruction of justice by Trump. Trump's dwindling stable of lawyers are terrified by the prospect of Trump's sworn testimony because Trump is so well known as a prolific liar. Lying under oath would be yet another federal crime by Trump.
Trump has also caused dozens of lawsuits against government agencies.
March 27: Trump has attacked just about all of us. 500 specified individuals (eg, Obama, McCain, George and Jebb Bush, Rubio, DOJ/FBI directors, national security directors, journalists) and entire populations (eg, Hispanics, Muslims, African Americans, Native Americans, women, fat/ugly people). Billions of us altogether. EXCEPT for 2 people. Vladimir Putin and Stormy Daniels.
March 27: Stormy Daniels leads Trump for 2020 election. Can't wait for the bumper stickers.
March 27: Trump's abuse of the Constitution has convinced a retired REPUBLICAN Supreme Court Justice, John Paul Stevens, to call for repeal of the second amendment.
"Rarely in my lifetime have I seen the type of civic engagement schoolchildren and their supporters demonstrated in Washington and other major cities throughout the country this past Saturday. These demonstrations demand our respect. They reveal the broad public support for legislation to minimize the risk of mass killings of schoolchildren and others in our society. But the demonstrators should seek more effective and more lasting reform. They should demand a repeal of the Second Amendment."
We do not need to go this far. Ban military weapons outside of military use, limit magazine capacity, serious background checks without exceptions/loopholes, strengthen bad-actor registries, legalize and fund gun safety research, education and mental-health support.
March 26: Silence from mouthy Trump on today's two biggest stories. The US expelling 60 Russian spies from the US for Russia's nerve gas, a weapon of mass destruction, attack in England and Stormy Daniels 60 Minutes interview (Trump's porn star affair, Trump's incest fetish with his daughter Ivanka, life threat against Daniels to scare her from speaking about the affair and a Daniel's lawsuit against Trump and Trump's mafia style fix-it lawyer).
Note: Stormy still has the dress she wore the night of Trump sex. Gold, Trump's favorite color. Trump's DNA present? If so, a flashback to Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky's blue dress.
Update: Trump rolled out his Trump-branded non-denial denial. Stormy is not the "type" he finds attractive. His daughter Ivanka he finds attractive. Trump calls all the women he had affairs with or has sexually assaulted ugly, forgetting for a moment that he had affairs with his wives before marrying them.
Trump hopes we are stupid. He had many opportunities to enter an NDA with Stormy beginning in 2011 when he threatened a lawsuit against InTouch magazine for publishing an interview with Stormy. Instead, Trump waited until October 28, 2016, and out of the blue for what he calls a hoax paid Stormy $130,000 hush money. If he is really that generous, everyone should file for $130,000 hush money to cover up a 'hoax'.
March 26: “So Stormy says she and Trump had sex only once. I guess if you want the guy to screw you repeatedly, you have to be one of his voters. I knew he was a shallow, lazy ignoramus, and I didn’t care.” (Ann Coulter, who also called for Trump's impeachment)
March 26: The morning after. Steamed by Stormy on 60 Minutes last night describing unimpressive Trump sex, Trump expelled 60 Russian diplomats from the US.
March 26: Strong man Trump deported a US veteran who took part in two tours of duty in Afghanistan. The Veteran had arrived in the U.S. when he was 8-years-old with his parents and sister who are now naturalized U.S. citizens. He has another sister who is an American citizen by birth.
March 25: Obama established Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in 2012. September 2017, Trump rescinded DACA and began deporting protected children, though this bigoted and unconscionable retribution was suspended by a federal court. Trump now blames Democrats for not having the power in Congress as the minority party to reverse his termination of the program last September. Such is the crazy world of Trump. Trump could reverse his own termination of DACA any moment he desires. Trump turned it off, he can easily turn it back on....but will not because he markets Hispanics as rapists and murderers.
March 25: There are 40 million students in grade school, 20 million in high school and 20 million in college. If only 10% participate in recruiting new voter registration, imagine the impact of these 8 million students on Trump and other corrupt politicians. (yesterday alone, a Saturday, students inspired over 5,000 new voter registrations) Combine this with the impact of the women's marches, which have already produced dramatic elections and waves of new candidates for office.
Trump cheated on his first wife with his second wife. He cheated on his second wife with his third wife. He cheated on his third wife with a porn star and Playboy model (the model described their 10-month affair March 23 and that Trump compared her to his daughter often, the porn star described their 2-year affair March 25). He went on radio shows bragging about his daughters body and desire to date her. During all of this, Trump bragged about committing serial sexual assault. He and his associates have paid some of them hundreds of thousands of dollars of hush money. When his victims speak out, he calls them liars, attacks their looks and threatens to sue them. He has sued one of them for $20 million. No wonder his current wife has a separate bedroom. White evangelicals and a third of voters endorse him, morality be damned in favor of Trump. What terrible role models for our children.
March 25: It will be a STORMY night for Trump. Watch 60 Minutes.
It is worthwhile to marvel her Twitter. Her point/counterpoints are fantastic, statements of philosophy. They deserve a book. Keep them coming. (https://twitter.com/StormyDaniels). And donate (https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/stormy/). I did.
UPDATE: Stormy spoke on 60 Minutes, garnering its highest ratings in 10 years (22 million viewers, more than any Trump Apprentice TV show episode). She had consensual sex with Trump once in July 2006 but was not impressed with his money and fame or the size of his penis, which he often bragged about during the campaign, and did not comply with his subsequent sex requests. She was threatened in 2011 in Las Vegas right after her 2011 interview about her and Trump with InTouch magazine was 'killed', in the presence of her infant daughter, to shut up or else by a man she would readily recognize if seen again. "That’s a beautiful little girl. It’d be a shame if something happened to her mom," the man said. Like Trump did with Karen McDougal (the Playboy model Trump had an affair with for 10 months), Trump compared Stormy with Trump's daughter Ivanka. Trump's creepy incest fetish. Her attorney showed, during the interview, proof that Trump's attorney was representing Trump for the non-disclosure agreement with Daniels and the October 28, 2016 $130,000 hush money payment, 11 days before the election, a severe legal violation of campaign finance law. It is notable that Trump paraded women out late in the campaign in 2016 to denigrate Bill Clinton for behavior described about Trump by Stormy Daniels, Karen McDougal and 19 women AND blaming Hillary Clinton for Bill Clinton's behavior. Yet to be released is physical evidence (documents, photos etc) that Daniels has regarding her and Trump. Thus, Trump trumpeted such immorality in Bill Clinton while Trump supporters exonerate Trump for such immorality and violation of law.
March 24: THIS IS A WONDERFUL DAY. Like July 4, 1776, true Americans are speaking against King Trump and his un-noble men, the politicians attacking democracy, security and the American Dream. Our children are speaking. Millions of them are marching and determined to register to vote.
From the Declaration of Independence celebrated today as it was in 1776:
"When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
Please vote only for politicians who consider sacred Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Make them read and re-read and practice The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States of America.
Lead, follow or get out of the way and join the dust bin of history.
"We call BS. Hear your children cry. I just threw up on international television, and it feels great. We want change. This is what Democracy looks like. Don't worry, we've got this. The voters are coming. Today is a bad day for tyranny and corruption. We deserve to have a life. This is not a passing moment, it is a movement. We are not here for bread crumbs, we are here for real change. We are here to lead. We will vote them out. We will no longer be hunted down by politicians finding their NRA funding more important than our lives. Fight for your lives before it is someone else's job." (student speakers today in Washington, DC)
Today, celebrating corruption while our students celebrate America, Trump is playing golf at his posh Palm Beach resort about 50 miles from Parkland, site of the murder of 17 by a military weapon endorsed by Trump. He ordered his motorcade to bypass the march to save lives in West Palm Beach. He ran away from his job in the White House to pretend that the march in Washington, DC was not larger than the crowd at his inauguration. Not a single tweet did Trump have about the most profound expression of democracy since Martin Luther King Jr., whose 9 year old granddaughter, Yolanda Renee King, spoke eloquently today.
March 24: Millions of students in the US, supported by marches around the world, are marching to save their lives from Trump's gun fetish. They will soon vote and change the world for the better. (More than 187,000 students at nearly 200 schools in the U.S. have experienced gun violence at their schools since the Columbine shooting in 1999. There have been 10 school shootings per year since Columbine. At least 36 states have experienced a shooting at a school.)
Today, Trump canceled school safety studies!!!!!!!!!!!!
March 23: Trump demanded that Congress violate the US Constitution for him. The US Supreme Court ruled in 1998 that the 'line item veto' was unconstitutional. Trump ordered Congress to overrule the Court.
March 23: Treason exposed. Roger Stone, a Trump dirty trickster, admitted that he got stolen Democrat emails to use for Trump from 'Gucifer 2', who has been proven to be a Russian intelligence operative. Proof of Trump conspiracy with Russia against the US.
March 22: Trump fired General H. R. McMaster as National Security Director, replacing him with wacky John Bolton from Fox News. Now, Trump will have a partner to wipe North Korea and Iran off the face of the earth. Trump badly wants war everywhere. With China, North Korea, Iran, international trade, Stormy Daniels, his victims of sexual assault, Muslims, African Americans....and America.
In 2018, the stock market has lost nearly 3,000 points. As outbreak of world war gets closer, with nuclear weapons deployed by the US, North Korea, Iran and Israel, maybe even Russia and China, the US stock market will lose nearly all its value. Tens-hundreds of millions of earth's human inhabitants will be killed. A billion or more will be severely injured. The environment will be destroyed. The US Constitution will be suspended.
Save Trump's precious Russia. Rex Tillerson linked the UK poisoning to Russia. Fired. McMaster said that Russia's link to US election interference was incontrovertible. Fired.
March 22: Stormy Daniels, Trump's porn star 'friend', sent a demand to Trump today to preserve bank and business records for his company. Now that he has sued Daniels, Trump will be targeted for deposition and demands for a wide range of documents.
March 22: So much hot air. Last week, Trump made a big deal over large tariffs on steel and aluminum, insisting that granting any exceptions would drive their size even higher for those Trump villains remaining. Today, Trump exempted most countries that send steel and aluminum to the US: EU (ie, countries of Europe and UK), Canada, Mexico, Australia, South Korea, Argentina and Brazil.
Today, trump a new bag of tariffs against China, causing the stock market to lose 723 points, nearly 3% in value in one day. Tonight, the world may further react to Trumps trade war, sending stocks even lower tomorrow. China's reaction may be ominous over the next several weeks, including partnering with North Korea to defend against war with North Korea.
Update: China response: "China would fight to the end to defend its own legitimate interests with all necessary measure. China is not afraid of and will not recoil from a trade war. U.S. trade relations in danger with the purpose of hurting others that eventually end up hurting itself."
And, Trump dropped out of TPP, the other countries now have their own trade agreement. And, Trumps wants out of NAFTA. US trade has a bleak trade future.
Update: China is planning a 25 percent tariff on pork imports and 15 percent tariffs on steel pipes, fruit and wine. The tariffs will target $3 billion of U.S. imports.
March 22: Trump's lead lawyer for the 'Russia investigation' of Robert Mueller RESIGNED. Hard to defend someone so guilty of treason and violating the Constitution.
March 22: Trump, the bogus POTUS, threatened to beat up former VP Joe Biden (75 years old), "he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way." Violence comes easy to Trump.
March 21: More treason, more weakness. The Pentagon testified to congress yesterday that Russia and China have military weapons that the US cannot defend against, super fast missiles. Trump has given US elections, US nuclear power facilities, US businesses and US military defense away.
March 21: The Austin, TX bomber was white. So Trump did nothing. If he had been African American or Muslim, he would have sent tanks and jets and throw temper tantrums on TV and Twitter.
March 20: Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters announced that he was quitting Fox News as a strategic analyst on Tuesday in a fiery email to colleagues. "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed. Four decades ago, I took an oath as a newly commissioned officer. I swore to 'support and defend the Constitution,' and that oath did not expire when I took off my uniform. Today, I feel that Fox News is assaulting our constitutional order and the rule of law, while fostering corrosive and unjustified paranoia among viewers. In my view, Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration." Fox News is the defacto state TV station for Trump.
March 20: A New York judge rejected a bid by Trump to dismiss a lawsuit relating to his sexual assault of "The Apprentice" contestant Summer Zervos in 2007. The judge ruled that Trump is not above the law. Justice Jennifer Schecter wrote that a "sitting president is not immune from being sued in federal court for unofficial acts," citing court precedent that led to President Clinton's impeachment in 1998. Justice Schecter subsequently denied Trump's "motion to dismiss this case or hold it in abeyance." And, second woman, Karen McDougal, is suing a Trump associate, David Pecker, to cancel the non-disclosure 'agreement' about a Trump affair ($150,000 hush money paid), just as porn star Stormy Daniels filed last week regarding her 2006-2007 affair with Trump ($130,000 hush money paid). Three Trump women, three lawsuits in today's news.
A 2011 lie detector test showed Stormy Daniels truthful about Trump affair. "In the opinion of this examiner Ms. Clifford is truthful about having unprotected vaginal intercourse with Donald Trump in July 2006." Daniels spoke out today, "Technically I didn’t sleep with the POTUS 12 years ago. There was no sleeping (hehe) and he was just a goofy reality TV star."
March 20: Trump congratulated pal Putin for winning his sham election (after murdering, poisoning, banning and jailing his competition. Trump's national security team told him not to and told him to chastise Putin for poisoning people in England last week.
March 19: Trump hired another lawyer, this one specializing in saying that Trump's Justice Dept and FBI are framing him for treason and obstruction of justice. Void a tinfoil hat to protect him from invisible beams of conspiracy from aliens in a far away galaxy, this Trump lawyer says it was not Russia who corrupted the election but DOJ/FBI. Fear is boiling in Trump.
BUT, this is a simple case about a plot hatched during the 2016 presidential election. The story begins with close business contacts between the Defendant, Donald John Trump, and Russian oligarchs, including some who obtained and distributed illegally hacked emails belonging to the Democratic Party in order to help Trump win. It continues with Trump and his associates—after receiving stolen goods—promising a major favor to the Russians in return for their criminal activity. And it ends with the Defendant Trump trying to cover up his crimes. Actually, the true end of the story is — when justice and accountability are restored. In return for the Russians stealing and releasing emails, the Defendant Trump and members of his staff promised—publicly and privately—that after being sworn in, the new president would drop U.S. government sanctions against the Russian government and Russian oligarchs who are close to Russian President Vladimir Putin. The stolen emails and a variety of other illegal Russian efforts to hurt the Clinton campaign were the currency the Russians used to barter for sanctions relief. This quid pro quo is the criminal conspiracy. For Trump, it was to use any edge he could to win the election, even if it was clearly illegal, and to stay on good enough terms with Russian oligarchs to allow himself and his family and associates loan relief and other business deals with them if he lost. Trump knows that any criticism of Putin risks exposure of Russia’s extensive financial stakes in his businesses.
March 19: Andrew McCabe's lawyer: "We will not be responding to each childish, defamatory, disgusting & false tweet by the President. The whole truth will come out in due course. But the tweets confirm that he has corrupted the entire process that led to Mr. McCabe’s termination and has rendered it illegitimate."
March 19: What a trade. With Trump's return of favor, Putin won his election today.
Question: How often does Trump make secret phone calls to Vladimir Putin to conspire new ways to degrade the US and keep Trump's sex videos secret?
March 18: "Mr. Trump acts like a nasty, small-minded despot, not the leader of a democracy more than two centuries old in which rule of law is a sturdy pillar. If there is doubt that the timing of Mr. McCabe’s dismissal was driven by political vengeance, Mr. Trump does everything he can to prove the worst with his own sordid words. In nations without a strong democratic foundation, tyrants cling to power by belittling perceived enemies and insulting and co-opting other institutions, such as a free press, law enforcement and the military, coercing them into subservience. Now the president has attempted to discredit, and lauded the punishment of, a potential witness against him, an affront to the integrity and independence of law enforcement. In fact, the hardworking men and women of the FBI, the Justice Department, the intelligence agencies and elsewhere in government come to work every day to uphold the values of a democratic system based on rule of law — a system that is distinguished by the simple principle that everyone is judged fairly, not by grudge or whim, and that no one is above the law, not even the president." (The Washington Post)
March 18: After Robert Mueller sent him some sample questions for his interview with prosecutors, Trump went on an even crazier Twitter storm. Fear. He fired Andrew McCabe from a long career in the FBI 26 hours before retirement in attempt to derail his evidence against him. He ordered his lawyer to demand that Mueller be fired and that his investigation into Russia's interference in the election and his conspiracy with Putin be closed. And, worried about pictures and videos of his 2006-2007 affair, Stormy Daniels is keeping him awake. What if Mueller interviews Stormy? Trump is making Stormy the second most famous person and fastest fund raiser (https://www.crowdjustice.com/case/stormy/). 60 Minutes March 25 may become the most watched show. Beauty vs the beast.
March 18: Cambridge Analytica, the data firm the Trump campaign used during the 2016 election and closely tied to Jared Kushner and Russia, had the private information of more than 50 million people without their permission. The 50 million Facebook profiles the firm harvested without permission allowed it to plan with Russian collaboration techniques for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. Notably, Analytica paid gullible politicians handsomely and supplied Ukrainian women while videotaping them for future blackmail. A bucket of crimes.
Cambridge Analytica bragged. "We did all the research, all the data, all the analytics, all the targeting. We ran all the digital campaign, the television campaign and our data informed all the strategy. Charities or activist groups, and we use them — feed them the material and they do the work. We just put information into the bloodstream, to the internet, and then watch it grow, give it a little push every now and again over time to watch it take shape. And so this stuff infiltrates the on-line community and expands but with no branding — so it’s unattributable, untrackable."
Cambridge Analytica, a go-between Trump/Kushner/Russia/Wikileaks was created by a billionaire Trump supporter who also brought us Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway. Illegally, Analytica, paid $6 million by Trump, was also paid millions by other organizations working indirectly for the Trump campaign.
March 18: Trump ordered his lawyer to say on Trump's behalf. "I pray that Acting Attorney General Rosenstein will follow the brilliant and courageous example of the FBI Office of Professional Responsibility and Attorney General Jeff Sessions and bring an end to alleged Russia Collusion investigation manufactured by McCabe’s boss James Comey based upon a fraudulent and corrupt Dossier." Another Trump day, another Trump obstruction of justice.
Very afraid Trump is to testify before Rob Meuller and a grand jury or to comply with Mueller's subpoena for documents and emails pertaining to Trump-Russia criminal conspiracies.
Trump demands that Russia investigation by Robert Mueller cease! It began months earlier than Trump and his layer claim, when Trump's own campaign was bragging about Trump's Russia conspiracy April 2016 (FBI/DOJ investigation began July 2016. Months later, FBI/DOJ learned of the 'dossier'; the only parts of the dossier not confirmed are alleged Trump sex acts while in Russia, videotapes likely held by Putin). Trump's conspiracy began months to years earlier than April 2016. For example, in 2014, Trump was negotiating for a billion dollar real estate venture with a Putin associate and long before this was money laundering with Russia.
March 17: "The one thing I can say about The Donald is The Donald is fun. Well, for a dude — and I consider myself a dude — Donald is a man's man." (OJ Simpson)
March 17: "When the full extent of your venality, moral turpitude, and political corruption becomes known, you will take your rightful place as a disgraced demagogue in the dustbin of history. You may scapegoat Andy McCabe, but you will not destroy America...America will triumph over you." (CIA Director John Brennan)
March 17: Late last night was party time, "a great day" according to Trump. After a year of attacking Attorney General Jeff Sessions, FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe and the FBI as corrupt, Trump forced Sessions to fire McCabe 26 hours before his retirement so that his retirement benefits would be harmed. Trump also tried to punch FBI Director James Comey again, who Trump fired for telling the truth last May. Trump also joined litigation again against his porn star Stormy Daniels, claiming this time that she owes him $20 million. Trump also wants the litigation transferred to a federal court, over which he has control. Trump's obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and lies pound on.
McCabe's response. "I am being singled out and treated this way because of the role I played, the actions I took, and the events I witnessed in the aftermath of the firing of James Comey. I literally walked into the building every day expecting that I would be removed from my position before the end of the day. This attack on my credibility is one part of a larger effort not just to slander me personally, but to taint the FBI, law enforcement, and intelligence professionals more generally. It is part of this Administration's ongoing war on the FBI and the efforts of the Special Counsel investigation, which continue to this day. Their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the Special Counsel's work. I have been an FBI Special Agent for over 21 years. I spent half of that time investigating Russian Organized Crime as a street agent and Supervisor in New York City. I have spent the second half of my career focusing on national security issues and protecting this country from terrorism. For the last year and a half, my family and I have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country. Articles too numerous to count have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading allegation against us. The President's tweets have amplified and exacerbated it all. He called for my firing. He called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service." Most likely McCabe will file a lawsuit against Trump's vendetta against the FBI. McCabe will prevail.
Michael Avanatti, Daniel's attorney, response. "The fact that a sitting president is pursuing over $20M in bogus 'damages' against a private citizen, who is only trying to tell the public what really happened, is remarkable. Likely unprecedented in our history. We are NOT going away and we will NOT be intimidated."
With criminal conspiracy with Russia and its oligarchs, corrupt banks and money launderers, corrupt lawyers and politicians, chaos and fakery, and with malice toward all and charity for none –––– Trump is determined to break the United States. He will not succeed against the US Consitution, democracy and the American dream.
March 16: "Reluctantly I have concluded that President Trump is a serious threat to US national security. He is refusing to protect vital US interests from active Russian attacks. It is apparent that he is for some unknown reason under the sway of Mr Putin." (General Barry McCaffrey)
March 16: Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) hit the Republican Party on Thursday for its support of President Trump, saying the party may not deserve to lead. "If we are going to cloister ourselves in the alternative truth of an erratic leader, if we are going to refuse to live in the world that everyone else lives in and reckon with the daily reality that they face including the very real anxiety that they feel, then my party might not deserve to lead." Republicans siding with Russia against the US need to be removed from office. Bring back Reagan Republicans.
March 16: So unpatriotic even NRA's lawyer expressed concern that the NRA was being paid by Russia to support Trump's election.
The NRA violates the US Consitution like Trump. They ignore the first 4 words of the Second Amendment. "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
March 16: Trump goons have threatened to kill porn star Stormy Daniels, one of many paid hush money to shup up or else.
March 15: 60 Minutes announced that it will broadcast ints interview with Trump's porn star March 25. On March 24, millions of students will protest Trump; over 500,000 are expected in Washington, DC, marching between the White House and the Capitol.
March 15: The consequences of Trump's treason expand. All US national security directors and nominees testify that Trump is holding back protection of the US from Russia's cyberattack war. Not only has Russia hacked into US nuclear electric power plants, Russian computer programs reside on their computers, capable of taking control anytime Putin's order is given. The US Dept. of Homeland Security issued today its ominous warning, praying industry can fix what Trump will not. Eggregiously, Trump has encouraged even more damage than this. American officials and private cybersecurity experts uncovered a series of Russian attacks aimed not only at energy but also water and aviation sectors and critical manufacturing in the United States and Europe. “I would say right now they do not think much will happen to them,” General Nakasone said. “They don’t fear us.” Trump is Putin's agent, enabling Russia's war against the US (and its allies) in violation of the US Constitution and his oath to preserve, protect and defend the US.
Last week, Russia attacked England with chemical warfare, poisoning hundreds of its citizens, the first time Russia used chemical warfare since World War II. England, a US ally, suffers from Trump also.
With Trump, we are all in grave danger.
March 15: Trump's corporation presides over 500 businesses, many doing legal and illegal business around the world and now in violation of the US Constitution. Today, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller demanded by federal subpoena that Trump's company turnover everything pertaining to Trump business and Russia, directly exploring criminal conspiracy between Trump and Russia and/or other countries for political and/or financial gain and/or Trump's witting or unwitting recruitment by Russia, directly or indirectly, to become a Russian agent to degrade the United States. Notably, Mueller is not fishing. And, everyone in Trump's business is now officially on notice to be aware of their exposure to criminal prosecution. They better not destroy or alter evidence. Perhaps many more in Trump's orbit need to retain defense lawyers as so many already have.
Concurrently, Trump is embroiled in actual and threatened litigation involving Trump's 2006-2007 affair with a porn star and $130,000 hush money paid to her a couple weeks before election, several of his victims of sexual assault and several additional porn stars.
March 15: More Trump witness tampering. Trump announced that Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe is a "bad actor" and threatens to withhold McCabe's FBI retirement, which begins 3 days. McCabe is a key witness in Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election in favor of Trump. McCabe served honorably in the FBI on the SWAT team, fighting organized crime, combating terrorism, investigating the Boston Marathon bombing and securing the arrest of the terrorist who conspired on the Benghazi attack. In contrast, Trump dreamed up bone spurs.
March 15: Trump boasted to a room full of donors that he lied to and ridiculed the Prime Minister of Canada, accusing Canada of a crime against the US it did not commit and signaling world leaders that Trump does not tell the truth and will make fun of you to get a laugh from his audience.
March 15: Trump has been such a successful white collar criminal and mafia partner for so many decades that he sees law, law enforcement and prosecutors as a conspiracy against him, the standard defense of white collar criminals who usually argue that their wrongdoing is legal. Of course, they don't really believe this. They simply argue their gibberish through corrupt lawyers to the gullible, who unfortunately include the courts, prosecutors, regulators, banks, insurance companies, investors, the media and especially the public. Thusly, Trump hopes to be successful again, this time against the US Constitution, federal/state law and Americans, insisting (with a sly grin) the FBI, DOJ, Rod Rosenstein and Robert Mueller are criminals conspiring to investigate and prosecute his crimes. As a pompous celebrity, Trump enjoys support from scared and corrupt politicians and a third of voters who readily swallow his fakery.
March 15: Validating Robert Mueller's indictments, which Trump claims are fake news, and finally complying with US law, the Treasurey Dept issued sanctions against Russia for interfering in US elections. Some of those entities sanctioned by the Treasury Dept. today have already been indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller.
March 14: It is 10:00 AM. America's best is on stage. Students across America are protesting for their lives. 17 seconds or minutes of dedication, holy silence, in honor of 17 students murdered. (Columbine High School students will be silent for 30 seconds, 17 for Parkland plus 13 for the students slaughtered at Columbine in 1999.) At the White House, 1,000+ students have their back toward the White House because Trump has turned his back on them. Kill the students says Trump, congresssional collaborators and the NRA. It's good for business....war guns on our streets trump life.
Thousands of students marched to the Capitol from the White House. Hundreds of thousands of students are marching nationwide. March 24, students will amass even more (500,000+ are expected in DC alone). Many are turning 18 by November and will vote. Our future is great!
Trump has convinced his supporters, a third of voters, that tyranny is better than democracy, Russia is better than America and white supremacy is better than inclusion. War guns in schools are better than being banned. Adultery, sexual assault, vulgarity and deportation are now acceptable.
Trump's brain, Steve Bannon, went to France last week to market the idea internationally that racism is a badge to be proudly displayed.
March 13: The NRA forced Trump to run away from sane gun control and his promises made last week to save our children from murder by NRA's corporate members. Trump and his congressional collaborators against our children may try a pair of the 7,000 pairs of shoes laid out at the Capitol representing the students killed by guns since the 2012 Sandy Hook student massacre.
March 13: Trump fired several today, including Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who called Trump a moron several months ago and finding out via a Trump tweet, and John McEntee, Trump's personal assistant since the campaign (a security matter revealed in his background check). We look forward to saying to Trump, "You're fired." The final straw for Tillerson was that he criticized Russia for poisoning British residents with a military nerve agent. McEntee was perpetrating financial crimes from the White House.
Trump's firestorm was an attempt to get Trump's porn star Stormy Daniels out of the news.
Reporters gathered at the White House on Friday were stunned when Chief of Staff John Kelly shared a very embarrassing story about outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Kelly told the room Tillerson was suffering from a stomach bug during a diplomatic swing through Africa, and was using a toilet when Kelly broke the news to him. It wasn’t Kelly’s only off color comment at the meeting. He also joked about incoming chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow’s former cocaine habit.
March 13: As ordered by Trump, his co-conspirators in congress on the House Intelligence Committee violated their oath to preserve, protect and defend America. They too claim that the national intelligence community, including Trump-designated directors of CIA, FBI and NSA, is lying in their acknowledgment that Russia interfered with the 2016 election for Trump. Trump's co-conspirators refused to accept sworn testimony and pursue vial testimony. From committee member Adam Schiff, "By ending its oversight role in the only authorized investigation in the House, the Majority has placed the interests of protecting the President over protecting the country, and history will judge its actions harshly. Regrettably, that challenge proved too much. The Majority was not willing to pursue the facts wherever they would lead, would prove afraid to compel witnesses like Steve Bannon, Hope Hicks, Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump Jr., Corey Lewandowski and so many others to answer questions relevant to our investigation. It proved unwilling to subpoena documents like phone records, text messages, bank records and other key records so that we might determine the truth about the most significant attack on our democratic institutions in history. Instead, it began a series of counter-investigations, designed to attack the credibility of the FBI, the Departments of Justice and State, and investigate anyone and anything other than what they were charged to do — investigate Russia’s interference in our election and the role the Trump campaign played. Ironically, even while they close down the Russia investigation, they plan to continue trying to put our own government on trial: this is a great service to the President, and a profound disservice to the country."
Yet another greenlight to Russia to attack and control the US.
March 12: Big talk, no action. Trump offers gun control, DACA fix, superior health insurance, huge tax saving for the middle class, half page income tax form, infrastructure, the best executive branch employees, ethical behavior, showing us his tax returns, disengaging in personal businesses, work full time. Walks back. Delivers junk.
March 12: Trump's Russian friends poisoned 2 Russians, a double agent and his daughter, in England and exposed hundreds of others using a military-grade nerve agent, ie chemical warfare. Trump approves. What are friends for?
March 12: Classic Trump. He claimed Maxine Waters, an African American woman elected to congress since 1991 and elected to the California Assembly 1977-1991, has a low IQ. What does that say about Trump's IQ after lifelong adultery with 3 wives, affairs with porn stars and boasts about dating his daughter and grabbing women he casually meets by their genitals and other forms of sexual assault. Maxine Waters is the fifth out of thirteen children and was raised by her single mother once her father left the family when Maxine was two.
Things have really changed. It use to be that lies, racism, white supremacy, sexual assault, adultery, vulgarity, guns in schools, nuclear weapons and dictators were bad and that the US Constitution, democracy, trade promotion, inclusion, courtesy and quality of life were good. Not so with Trump, who brags about turning reality around. His fakery and tyranny produce better ratings.
While Trump markets illegals as snakes, it is Trump who is a snake...against his wives and against America. Trump uses the poem to describe himself. “Take me in, oh tender woman. Take me in, for heaven's sake Take me in oh tender woman, sighed the snake. Now she clutched him to her bosom, You're so beautiful, she cried. But if I hadn't brought you in by now you might have died. Now she stroked his pretty skin and then she kissed and held him tight. But instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite. Take me in, oh tender woman. Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in oh tender woman, sighed the snake. I saved you, cried that woman. And you've bit me even, why? You know your bite is poisonous and now I'm going to die. Oh shut up, silly woman, said the reptile with a grin. You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in. Take me in, oh tender woman. Take me in, for heaven's sake. Take me in oh tender woman, sighed the snake." (Belle Stars)
March 11: Last night, there was a disturbance in America. Trump assaulted America ferociously at a campaign rally. He mocked all previous presidents for behaving presidential, calling out Ronald Reagan and George Bush and having special scorn for Barrack Obama, an African American. He is determined to remove Obama from history. He attacked an African American congresswoman for having a low IQ, the aged attack of white supremacists. He attacked Oprah Winfrey, an African American. He defamed a US Senator as Pocahontas. He feverishly attacked the press, calling Chuck Todd a "sleeping son of a bitch." Like all tyrants, he sees the press and First Amendment as enemies of the people. He claimed that he single handedly converted Kim Jong Un into an honorable leader. Egregiously, he fired up a cheering crowd against Americans and America. And, of course, he praised himself. He took sole credit for the Olympics and the US economy. Like Duterte in the Philippines, he wants to kill drug dealers. No comment of course about Putin's shifting his responsibility for election interference for Trump to Jews. These are the indoctrinations Trump wants our children to learn or be subject themselves to deportation.
March 9: Trump hired another lawyer to handle his porn star affair. Lawrence Rosen describes himself as a "pit bull" on his firm's website. One more Trump show begins. Stormy Daniels' strip show appearances are busy, as she promotes herself as Trump's mistress.
March 9: Trump dramatically elevated the stature and status of North Korea, accepting Kim Jong Un's invitation to meet by May (Trump relied on a non-existent letter from Kim Jong Un). Rocket Man and Russia Man, Godzilla and King Kong, together. Leadership in Korean turmoil transferred from the US to South Korea. And, that's not all. Trump started a trade war with Europe and beyond as 11 Pacific countries banded together for a trans pacific partnership Trump ran away from. A new world order in the making. Anything to push Stormy Daniels, Trump's porn partner, away from the news.
Trump accepted Kim's invite within about an hour of hearing it. Kim slyly got Trump to jump at the shiny bait, to display Trump's gullibility and ignorance and to bring North Korea to the level of the US.
Trump's tariffs are a 'quickly' moving target. First, Trump said with was iron clad punishment for all the world that would last a long time. Then, exceptions and temporary terms took over Trump excels at walking back, eg ObamaCare, the 'wall', DACA, gun control and immigration. Trump can't even succeed in a deal with a porn star.
March 8: About Trump, Vladimir Putin said, "I have no disappointment at all. Moreover, on a personal level he made a very good impression on me. [The U.S. political system] has demonstrated its inefficiency and has been eating itself up."
With Trump, Putin deployed the most successful and efficient attack against the US.
Trump has set a new morality standard for white evangelicals and role model for our children. It is now OK to commit adultery with a porn star and then pay her off to keep the tawdry secret.
March 7: Another Trump lie exposed and more treason evidence. Trump and team claimed that a meeting in Seychelles BEFORE Trump was in office between a Trump advisor (and brother of Trump's Secretary of Education) and Russian spy was a random happenstance. False. In fact, it was planned and intended to set up a back channel between the Trump and the Kremlin to bypass US national security agencies, Congress and the American public. A Lebanese-American businessman named George Nader testified before a grand jury about the illegal meeting. Nader, who began cooperating with investigators in mid-January after he was stopped at Dulles Airport and served a subpoena, helped arrange and attended the meeting.
March 7: The top story of today. Trump is at war with a porn star. He paid her $130,000 about a week before the 2016 election to shut up about their 2006 adulterous sexual affair, a couple months after marrying Melania, with Stormy Daniels, featured in 'redtube' porn videos. Trump is now trying to keep secret various photos, videos and DNA evidence held by Daniels. The White House announced today that Trump won in court in a recent arbitration case aimed at muffling Daniels (the alleged arbitration case is bogus because Stormy was not informed of the procedure, or its alleged secret restraining order against her). This saga parallels likely video Vladimir Putin has involving Trump in sexual acts while in Russia in 2013, one of many reasons why Trump will not attack Vladimir Putin.
March 7: Clarified today, Trump ordered White House Counsel Dan McGahn to fire Robert Mueller June 2017, though McGahn refused. Because this was another obstruction of justice by Trump, McGahn reported Trump's order to Mueller November 2017. January 2018, Trump ordered McGahn to deny the June 2017 order to obstruct justice. Again, McGahn refused. Trump later confronted McGahn in the Oval Office in front of the White House chief of staff, John F. Kelly. McGahn replied that the president was wrong and that he had in fact asked Mr. McGahn in June to call the deputy attorney general, Rod J. Rosenstein, to tell him that the special counsel had a series of conflicts that disqualified him for overseeing the investigation and that he had to be dismissed.
Trump also probed McGahn and Reince Priebus about their testimony to Robert Mueller about Trump. Witness tampering.
March 6: Illegal and demeaning. Trump ordered 12-inch replicas of the presidential seal to be used as tee markers at Trump golf courses to further cash in one the office of the president.
March 5: Trump turned the US State Dept. over to Vladimir Putin, who removed Mitt Romney from consideration for Secretary and placed Rex Tillerson, who Putin awarded his 2013 Order of Friendship award. And, Putin has convinced Trump NOT to fight back against Putin's US election interference, not spend $120 million approved for the State Dept. by Congress and not implement sanctions against Russia mandated by US law.
March 3: Trump spent his 100th day since inauguration at one of his golf course businesses, costing taxpayers millions of dollars.
March 3: Well I think that you technically have an obstruction of justice case that already exists. I think that Steyer is absolutely right in the sense that Trump is derelict in his duties. We were attacked. It wasn't a physical attack, it was an electronic attack, on our most vital of systems, and he's done nothing to prepare us for what is to come. Because they're still coming. And he's done nothing to hold the Russians accountable in spite of the fact that this dysfunctional Congress passed sanctions that he has refused to implement. And that for me is breathtaking, unforgivable and ultimately something the American people have to hold him responsible for. The difference between me and [Attorney General] Jeff Sessions — I had a president I did not have to protect. (Eric Holder, Attorney General, 2009 to 2015)
March 2: Former CIA Director John Brennan: "Trump is unstable, inept, inexperienced, and also unethical. It is no secret to anybody that Donald Trump was very ill prepared and unexperienced in terms of dealing with matters that a head of state needs to deal with, head of government, and I think this is now coming to roost. When I hear what Vladimir Putin was saying just yesterday about the nuclear capabilities he has, the President of the United States is tweeting about Alec Baldwin this morning, I mean, where is your sense of priorities?"
March 2: Trump announced a 25% tariff on steel, but not before tipping off buddy Carl Icahn so that he could dump $31 million in stock. Illegal insider trading, par for Trump's course.
March 2: Trump admires how Singapore deals with drug-trafficking offenses: execution. Take them out back, stand them against a wall, and shoot them.
March 1: Having weakened the US by electing Trump and convincing Trump to encourage Russia's attacks against the US, Russia developed a superior nuclear weapon to use against the US. Putin broadcast a video bombing the US with nuclear bombs. Trump has no response. This is what Trump has invited from Putin.
Putin's "my missiles are bigger than yours" rhetoric was no accident -- Putin wanted Trump to hear him loud and clear. As a former Soviet secret service agent, Putin knows how to manipulate people. By poking at Trump's insecurities, Putin is hoping to distract the President -- making it less likely Trump will take action to hold Russia accountable for its ongoing attacks on the United States.
"Any use of nuclear weapons against Russia or its allies, any kind of attack, will be regarded as a nuclear attack against Russia, and in response, we will take action instantaneously no matter what the consequences are," Putin said. "Nobody should have any doubt about that." North Korea?
February 28: Gigantic Trump corruption. Taxpayers, foreign governments and Russia have spent tens of millions of dollars on Trump. But, so large it must be hush money or an endowment for his daughter Ivanka, Trump has empowered massive Jared Kushner corruption. Two companies alone paid Kushner $509 million for their access to the White House as 'investments' into Kusher's businesses ($184 million from Apollo Group and $325 million from Citigroup). Follow the money, connect the dots, recognize the obvious.
February 28: Yesterday, Hope Hicks, Trump's 5th White House Communications Director at the age of 29 with background in fashion but second in command in the White House, testified to Congress under oath that she often lied to protect Trump. Today, Hicks resigned.
Former Trump team legal spokesperson Mark Corallo resigned himself because of his concerns that Hicks could be considering obstructing justice after a comment she reportedly made about emails between Donald Trump Jr. and Russians ... that she was planning to hide or destroy evidence showing Trump-Russia collusion.
February 27: Revealed today, Russia broke into election systems of at least 7 states in the 2016 election. In turn, Trumps continues to encourage Russia to attack the US. Looking forward to continued Russian collusion against the US, Trump announced his campaign for re-election for 2020. Treason is Trump's proven winning strategy.
February 27: Trump 's treason continues. Last week, the FBI Director testified under oath that Trump is preventing the FBI from thwarting ongoing Russian attacks against the US. A few days ago, it became clear that Trump is not defending Russian attack against US soldiers in Syria. Today, the NSA Director testified that while his has the tools, Trump is preventing NSA from thwarting Russian attacks against the US. Trump refuses to protect the US and violates his oath to protect and defend the US from Russian military, business and election attacks against the US. Treason.
Former National Security Agency and CIA Director Michael Hayden said in an interview on Tuesday that he believes there is a "convergence" of interests between President Trump and Russia. “There is an eerie and uncomfortable echo between some of the things the president tweets, the different points of emphasis on Fox News, the thematic stories in the alt-right media, and Russian bots,” according to Hayden.
This past weekend, to appease Trump, Russia's candidate in the recent presidential election in France, was introduced by VP Mike Pence and addressed the pro-Russian gathering known as CPAC.
Trumps’ refusal to defend the integrity of the US election system and our Democracy from Russian attack represents an unconscionable dereliction of duty and utter faithlessness to his oath of office. This betrayal is unprecedented in American history. There has never been a President who refuses to defend America. Ever. He has been abetted by a deeply corrupted Republican majority in Congress and a profoundly dishonest right wing propaganda campaign. Their perfidy affronts the memory of all those who died so that we are free. (Steve Schmidt)
February 26: Trump's fake bravery. With a coward's record of fake bone spurs to get out of the military draft FIVE times, Trump announced that if he was around, he would have charged the shooter in the Parkland high school and killed him with his bare hands. Well, Mr. T., you were not far away at Mar-a-Lago and with your government helicopter could have been there as fast as local police. Did you choke again?
February 23: Trump invited would-be killers to attack hundreds of thousands of schools today, announcing that their doors are open to them and they will not be met with resistance. Kill baby kill.
February 22: Samantha Fuentes, 18, a senior at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, was shot in both legs and struck in the face with shrapnel. She currently has multiple stitches in her cheek, forehead and a bruise around her right eye, the shrapnel remains. Samantha had the misfortune of being on the receiving end of a call from Trump. Her response ... "He said he heard I was a big fan of his, and then he said 'I'm a big fan of yours, too.' I'm pretty sure he made that up. Talking to the president, I've never been so unimpressed by a person in all my life. He didn't make me feel better in the slightest."
When Fascism Comes To America, It Will Be Wrapped in the Flag and carrying the cross.
February 22: Trump announced that he wants to dramatically increase crime and increase school massacres. At taxpayer expense, he wants to mandate that teachers have guns in schools to engage in wild-west shootouts with students or others having guns in school. (there are hundreds of thousands of schools and millions of teachers in the US, and Trump wants to arm and train 20%, "maybe 40%," of teachers paid extra for becoming Trump mercenaries; the program would cost tens of billions of dollars and hundreds of murders each year; it would be a gold mine for gun manufacturers) Schools would look like a prison where scuffles and arguments would lead to shootings. Trump envisions schools as killing fields. Maybe, Trump would install walls with his logo emblazed. Undoubtedly, parents would withdraw their children, leaving hundreds of thousands of schools empty. And, actual law enforcement officers and SWAT teams entering the wild-west shootouts would shoot anyone with a gun, including teachers and what the NRA calls "good guys with guns." Trump also announced his intention, in retaliation against California, to remove federal law enforcement agents in California, thus creating a "crime nest" according to Trump. "You would have a crime mess like you've never seen in California," Trump added. Maybe, a Trump wall separating California from the US. Trillions in spending to take 'Trump control'.
February 21: "The Declaration of Independence was written in 1776, which gave my son the unalienable right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. So I ask you, why are my son's unalienable rights not protected as fiercely as the right to bear arms?" (Linda Biegel Schulman, whose son Scott Biegel was a geography teacher but murdered in Parkland by a war gun)
February 21: It is with overwhelming pride watching school children vastly outclass politicians today in Tallahassee. Year after year, thousands are killed by guns in the hands of criminals, the mentally disturbed and and the gullible taken in by the hate and lies of politicians who sell our lives and wellbeing for campaign cash, power games and self enrichment. It is time to re-elect no one. You failed us.
Last night, within 3 minutes of opening its session, the Florida legislature voted against even discussing war weapons sold to 18 year olds. Less than an hour later, it passed a resolution declaring pornography a public health risk. More war weapons and deaths, less porn they say.
February 21: Trump ordered Attorney General Jeff Sessions to investigate Barrack Obama for permitting Trump-Russia collusion, all those meetings between Russian spies and Trump's campaign, and Trump's ongoing subservience to Vladimir Putin. As always, Trump blames his problems on Obama.
Trump also told the Secretary of Veterans Affairs that he could fire "subversives." Sounds like Russia and a banana republic more every day.
February 21: Trump supporters are claiming that survivors of the Parkland massacre are only actors.
February 20: Trump is keeping the NRA happy. He is sending so many assault rifles to Syria, like the one used to kill 17 in Parkland, FL, that terrorists are selling them online. And Grenade launchers, heavy machine guns, thermal sniper scopes and body armor too. Trump's wars are big business for US gun makers and recipients of their campaign kick backs to gain license to arm terrorists.
February 19: Abraham Lincoln is rated the best US president, Trump is rated the worst. The former fought racism and defended America, the latter promotes racism and joins Russia attacking America.
Trump spent the Presidents Day weekend doing the Kremlin's work. His three days of Twitter venting against the FBI, his political opponents and the Russia investigation from his Mar-a-Lago resort were designed to further incite mistrust in the institutions of democracy and government, which the Russian intervention was designed to foment. At the same time, Trump failed to condemn the audacious "information warfare" effort alleged in a comprehensive indictment against 13 Russians that Mueller unveiled on Friday. He also failed to promise to protect future US elections -- even though intelligence chiefs have warned that an attempt to disrupt November's midterms may already be underway. this past weekend did reveal a remarkable continuity of interest between Trump and the Russians. As Trump brags, "They are laughing their asses off in Moscow." They are so happy with their investment in Trump to degrade America.
February 19: After 10 days of intense controversy of a wife beater and national security malfeasance in the White House, and Trump's illegal hush money payment of $130,000 just before the election to a porn star he had an affair with, an official in the White House announced that the massacre in Parkland, FL, killing 17, was a "reprieve", a welcome diversion. “For everyone, it was a distraction or a reprieve,” the official said. "A lot of people here felt like it was a reprieve from seven or eight days of just getting pummeled. But as we all know, sadly, when the coverage dies down a little bit, we’ll be back through the chaos."
February 19: "MISSING. INACTION. We Have a President Who Won’t Defend Our Nation. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats informed the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee that “frankly, the United States is under attack.” Coats sat at a long table alongside the directors of the CIA, the FBI,and the head of the National Security Agency. All were in agreement: Russia had declared war on our country. The president, Donald Trump, did nothing. This is the first time across all the dust-covered years of our history, centuries filled with courage and honor, that the elected commander-in-chief chose to tweet instead of plan to defend the country. And now we have another President’s Day. But this time we do not have a true and trusted President." (Mike Barnacle)
Today, Trump is back on the golf course and wining and dining with his wealthy patrons, only about 50 miles from the massacre in Parkland, FL.
February 19: Trump went ballistic over the weekend on Twitter, blaming his problems and guilt on the FBI, his National Security Advisor, Florida police, Florida students, Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, the media and Rep. Adam Schiff. Even Oprah Winfrey was trashed by Trump. Anyone but his benefactor, Vladimir Putin.
On this President's day, we are disgusted. The White House has become the nation's symbol of chaos, weakness, immorality, vulgarity, sociopathy, mental instability, desperation, disrespect, racism, bigotry, white supremacy, adultery, sexual assault, crime and treason. Trump is the worst role model our children and the US could have.
Trump has turned the presidency into a groveling, paranoid, delusional freak show. Trump's chaos and immorality is degrading America and its legendary leadership in the world, the life and future of our children and the American dream. Blame is his game. Truth is his nemesis. It comforts his sociopathy and helps pay his debts to Russia to tear apart families, divide the country, attack the government, destroy American institutions and inspire white supremacists to kill children.
Trump sees all of us merely as meaningless moving objects and pests around his obese ego. Incomprehensible to him is empathy, respect and integrity.
February 18: Students surviving the school massacre in Florida last week enabled by the NRA, Trump and politicians worry that adults are determined to murder them. "We are begging for our lives. You are either with us or against us." They will march on Washington, DC March 24 (www.marchforourlives.com and twitter.com/AMarch4OurLives). Sane people everywhere are with you.
The war-mongering NRA, Trump and politicians from their oppulent homes and taxpayer-paid-for woody offices adorned with expensive art want to see America turn into a war zone like Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria. They want to see more war weapons in the hands of untrained carriers in schools, shopping malls and neighborhoods.
Update: Missouri adults are having 3rd graders sell raffle tickets for the an AR15, the war gun used to kill 17 in Parkland, FL.
Trump is making sure that Russia wins its war against the US. Not doing anything to protect and defend the US, Trump is violating his oath of office – to protect and defend the US against all enemies foreign and domestic. His collusion and cover up is his treason.
February 17: Baby brat Trump says he didn't steal the cookies, Susie did. Attempting to divert everyone away from his treason with Russia, investigation of which has already produced 20 indictments, Trump tweeted that Hillary Clinton is the one who colluded with Russia. Trump's DOJ, FBI, CIA and the rest of US national intelligence agencies not buying Trump's tantrum.
February 17: White House had a big announcement today. Trump will not be golfing on this sunny Saturday in Palm Beach. It's his way of honoring the students murdered in Florida. What a man. Maybe tomorrow he can swing the clubs.
Actually, Trump did not give up golf to honor victims. He sat in bed tweeting lies against indictments yesterday of his best friends in the world, Russian criminals. And, he blamed the Florida massacre on the Russia investigation, not the killer with a war weapon, "Very sad that the FBI missed all of the many signals sent out by the Florida school shooter. This is not acceptable. They are spending too much time trying to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign..."
Always amazing to consider an opulent fake land baron running the US out of his opulent Palm Beach mansion while his voters don't realize how they are being made fools and are being ripped off by a cartoonish villain more than they ever have before. They are being duped by Trump and Vladimir Putin, conspiring together against America.
February 16: Although Trump denies – to cover up his collusion, obstruct justice and divert attention to Russia's success in getting him election - Russian interference in the 2016 election FOR him and AGAINST Hillary Clinton, in fact it happened. And, Russia is pleased with its success and its collusion with Trump and especially its infiltration of Trump's campaign and several US businesses and of staging protest rallies and millions of social media posts for Trump and against Clinton. Russia sent, and continues to send, its soldiers onto US soil, encouraged by Trump then and now.
Today, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian individuals and 3 organizational co-conspirators used in Russia's war against America with Trump's encouragement and defense. An excerpt: "to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the government through fraud and deceit for the purpose of interfering with the U.S. political and electoral processes, including the presidential election of 2016. Defendants' operations included supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J. Trump ("Trump Campaign") and disparaging Hillary Clinton. Defendants made various expenditures to carry out those activities, including buying political advertisements on social media in the names of U.S. persons and entities. Defendants also staged political rallies inside the United States, and while posing as U.S. grassroots entities and U.S. persons, and without revealing their Russian identities and ORGANIZATION affiliation, solicited and compensated real U.S. persons to promote or disparage candidates. Some Defendants, posing as U.S. persons and without revealing their Russian association, communicated with unwitting individuals associated with the Trump Campaign and with other political activists to seek to coordinate political activities. Defendants, together with others known and unknown to the Grand Jury, knowingly and intentionally conspired to defraud the United States by impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful functions of the Federal Election Commission, the U.S. Department of Justice, and the U.S. Department of State in administering federal requirements for disclosure of foreign involvement in certain domestic activities. The ORGANIZATION employed hundreds of individuals for its online operations, ranging from creators of fictitious personas to technical and administrative support. The ORGANIZATION's annual budget totaled the equivalent of millions of U.S. dollars. The conspiracy had as its object impairing, obstructing, and defeating the lawful governmental functions of the United States by dishonest means in order to enable the Defendants to interfere with U.S. political and electoral processes, including the 2016 U.S. presidential election."
Officially now, Trump's obstruction-of-justice claim that Mueller's investigation is a hoax is proven a lie. There was indeed an underlying crime of conspiracy against the US to benefit Donald J. Trump and harm the rest of us. And the indictments also confirm core elements of the Steele Dossier that Trump and his Republican co-conspirators also say is a hoax.
The indictments formally establish a war attack against the US by Russia began in 2014 right after Trump returned from Russia for a business venture with Vladimir Putin. Trump, egregiously violating his oath to protect and defend the US against enemies foreign and domestic, will do nothing to protect and defend the US from Russia, but rather encourage and collaborate with Russia's war. And, Trump has convinced most Republicans that Russia did not interfere in the 2016 election, is not interfering now for the 2018/2020 elections and beyond and that FBI/DOJ are investigating a hoax. About todays 15 indictments, Trump says they are merely false allegations and far-fetched theories. Well Mr Trump, the grand jury and DOJ/FBI disagree.
Three members of Trump's campaign were indicated in today's indictments.
Also released today by Mueller, a California man pleaded guilty 2 weeks ago for selling hundreds of bank account numbers using stolen identities over the internet to Russians interfering in the election on behalf of Trump.
Also released today by Mueller were addtional charges against Trump campaign director Paul Manafort for a series of bank frauds and bank fraud conspiracies.
(ABC News. March 21, 2017. For two years ending in 2013, the FBI had a court-approved warrant to eavesdrop on a sophisticated Russian organized crime money-laundering network that operated out of unit 63A in Trump Tower in New York. The Russian mafia figures worked out of unit 63A in the iconic skyscraper — just three floors below Trump’s penthouse residence — running what prosecutors called an “international money-laundering, sports gambling and extortion ring.” The FBI investigation led to a federal grand jury indictment of more than 30 people, including one of the world’s most notorious Russian mafia bosses, Alimzhan Tokhtakhounov. Known as the “Little Taiwanese,” he was the only target to slip away, and he remains a fugitive from American justice. Seven months after the April 2013 indictment and after Interpol issued a red notice for Tokhtakhounov, he appeared near Donald Trump in the VIP section of the Miss Universe pageant in Moscow. He is a major player,” said Mike Gaeta, the agent who led the 2013 FBI investigation of Tokhtakhounov and his alleged mafia money-laundering and gambling ring, in a 2014 interview with ABC News. “He is prominent. He has extremely good connections in the business world as well as the criminal world, overseas, in Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, other countries.” (NOTE: Trump's campaign manager and Trump's Commerce Secretary Wilber Ross were deeply involved with Russia's primary money laundering bank in Cyprus))
There will be more indictments and guilty pleas. Today's indictments dealt with only a component of Russia's war, part of the social media campaign. Yet to go are indictments and pleas pertaining to Russia's illegal cyberhacking of the DNC and Hillary Clinton's campaign, illegal money laundering, illegal financial collaborations between Trump and Russia, illegal co-conspiracy with Americans knowingly and illegally involved with Russia's war and illegal obstruction of justice by Trump and his campaign, White House and congressional co-conspirators, and probably more. All a predicate for indictment of Donald J. Trump for collusion with and cover-up of Russia's criminal conspiracy, money laundering with Russia and his own financial crimes (eg, income tax evasion). Trump will be proven to be a traitor and to have been elected illegitimately.
Still, Trump encourages continued interference in US elections, including violating the federal law he signed to sanction Russia for interfering with the 2016 US election Trump refuses to implement these sanctions or do anything else to curtail continued Russian interference.
While Republicans use to stand for conserving America, Republicans are not actually pro life. They support senseless killing of children, the poor, those addicted on prescription drugs, African Americans, Latinos and Muslims. They are anti-abortion as a means to subjugate women. They want to destroy the environment and species of life on the brink of extinction. They kill wonderful animals to hang on their wall. They support dictators who kill political rivals, members of the press and their citizens. They have no respect for life except for the despicable lives of corporations and hate groups who buy their patronage.
"The only people who don't care are the people making the laws." (Parkland, FL survivor of massacre by war weapon used by 19 year old white supremacist Trump supporter)
The Republican-Putin coalition (RPC) is flooding the internet with pro-war-weapon messages, including videos of gun-toting knive-toting threats from Trump supporters. This is their way to make America great again, kill by war guns at school.
February 18: Already 18 school shootings in 2018...and counting. Any politician who supports an 18-year-old buying a war weapon to massacre students is violating their oath to the United States Constitution. For them, campaign money is more important than our child's life.
February 14: The 18th school massacre in 2018 with a gun happened today in Florida about 50 miles from his palatial Palm Beach mansion. 17 were killed by a 19 year old with an assault rifle fed with high capacity bullet magazines. Students at the school predicted the rampage by a teenager they knew obsessed with guns. Trump says, more guns. More guns in the hand of the insane. More guns in schools. Teach our children to hate, to take revenge, to kill. This is the view of the US that Trump wants the world to see.
Trump's response, a tweet. If the killer had been non-white, Trump would sell rage, blame Obama and issue another ban against non-whites.
Trump relies on his 'base' who think that all these shootings are a hoax, fake news, and on his supporters who thrive and profit from mass murder.
Trump's FBI ignored several reports to FBI before the massacre that the shooter was planning to shoot up a school.
NOTE: One year ago, Trump signed into law REVOCATION of the rule that made it harder for people with mental illness to buy a gun. Trump prefers guns in the hands of the mentally ill. Trump's budget cuts millions from school safety. More guns, more murders, more massacres.
Update. The leader of the Republic of Florida white supremacist militia claimed that the shooter, an avid Trump supporter, belonged to the group and trained with other members in paramilitary drills. Trump likes white supremacists.Trump Calls This Fake News
February 12: A movie script or dark history in the making? Trump, compromised by illegal business relationships and sexual escapades in Russia, is a Russian agent put in place by Vladimir Putin. Compromised, Trump met with Russian spies often during the campaign, hired Paul Manafort as Campaign Director, heavily compromised with Russian banks and Putin, and installed Russia's foreign agent Michael Flynn as National Security Director and kept him in that role even after warnings from President Barack Obama and Attorney General Sally Yates, later fired by Trump for her recognition of Flynn's Russia connection. And, Trump is breaking US national security, most obviously his debilitation of the Dept. of Justice and FBI. Trump installed a CIA Director whose primary accomplishment has been to report that Trump can read, though chooses not to instead handing over national secrets to Jared Kushner, also compromised by Russia via large debts. One by one, leaders of these organizations are being pushed out. FBI Director Comey was the second to be removed (Yates the first: Yates was replaced by Jeff Sessions, himself heavily compromised by numerous Russian meetings that he lied about to Congress). Trump called Russia's top spies into the Oval Office to congratulate himself and assure the Russians that the pressure was off after firing Comey. A few weeks ago, Russia's top 3 intelligence chiefs paid a visit to Trump to assure he was in line. Associate Director of the DOJ and 'number 3' in the DOJ, Rachel Brand, was pushed out last week. Scores of others in US national security agencies are quitting in disgust and refusal to pledge loyalty to Trump/Russia rather than the US Constitution. Trump has expanded wasteful military excursions in Afghanistan, Iraq, Africa, Yemen, Qatar and Syria that are killing US soldiers and large numbers of civilians and threatening nuclear war in North Korea and Iran. Trump is encouraging ongoing Russian attacks on US elections, yet to implement any protections after the known massive interference in 2016. Trump, in violation of federal law signed by him, will not sanction Russia for its interference for Trump's 2016 election. The White House is intentionally immersed in chaos, orchestrated by Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly, to divert the media from more serious coverage (eg, for a week now, the media has been primarily obsessed with wife beating by top White House officials). More than a year in office, more than 130 White House officials do not have proper security clearances but have access to national security files. Kelly is making sure of that. Some of these officials have already been compromised, eg Jared Kushner, to benefit Russia. Trump, Kelly and members of the Cabinet, most notably longtime Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, are dismantling ALL US government agencies and assisting the rise of racism and white supremacy. Corruption of Trump's administration is monumental, costing millions of taxpayer dollars on personal expenses, trying to play the part of Russian oligarchs. Senate leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan are setting up economic collapse of the US with gigantic debt. And, pleasing Russia very much, Trump spends hours every day attacking the press, human rights and US Constitution. Worst of all, Trump has convinced most Republicans in office and a third of Americans to succumb to Russia. The world is watching the ruin of America and democracy as it also watches Russia renew and deploy its nuclear weapons aimed at Europe and the United States, Follow the money. Connect the dots. Recognize the obvious.
Trump's Russia collusion and mission to increase US debt $7 trillion on top of its $20 trillion debt and Trump's $1.5 trillion tax cut for the ultra wealthy to institutionalize a Russia-style corrupt oligarchy is a dire threat to US national security, and the dream of known as America.
UPDATE: Today, the Directors of all US national intelligence agencies testified to a Senate committee that the US IS UNDER ATTACK BY RUSSIA BUT TRUMP HAS NOT COMMANDED THEM TO DEFEND AGAINST RUSSIA'S ATTACK AND HAS NO STRATEGY TO DO SO. Why? Because Trump is a Russian agent undermining the US.
In one of the greatest derelictions of duty in presidential history, Trump refuses to unequivocally acknowledge that these attacks are happening, fails to designate one senior official to lead and manage the American response against them, fails to order his staff to develop a coordinated battle plan to counter them, fails to enforce American sanctions against them and praises the former KGB boss who directs them while he repeatedly attacks the FBI that defends America from them. Imagine if Franklin Roosevelt had told the nation on Dec. 7, 1941, that reports of the Pearl Harbor attack were fake news!
February 13: After months of denials, Trump's lawyer announced that he illegally paid, using a bogus corporation, a porn star $130,000 one week before the 2016 election to not discuss her sexual affair with Trump shortly after his marriage to Melania in 2006. It was a an illegal campaign contribution to illegally influence the election.
Trump's infamous tax cut: 13% goes to workers. $1.5 trillion added to national debt to serve corporations and wealthy.MEDIA WAKING UP
Trump's dystopia. Where the ignorant and gullible are sure they know everything better than those who do. Public safety and courtesy have no meaning. Dictatorship beats democracy.
Trump considers violent white supremacists and wife beaters 'fine people'.
February 8: Hell no to Trump says DOD Secretary James Mattis. While Trump is deporting 'dreamers', Secretary Mattis says that this will not occur with 'dreamers' in the military. "We would always stand by one of our people. They will not be subject to any kind of deportation."
No one, especially Trump's lawyers and staff, says that Trump will tell the truth to Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. All know Trump will lie, will cover up and will commit more crimes.
Trump has made it official policy of the US government that sexual abuse and assault, wife beating, child molestation are acceptable. Victims are never to be believed. They are always lying.
Trump hires and supports the worst he can find. Wife abusers, adulterers, pedophiles, felons, indicted as enemies of the US, Holocaust deniers, racists, white supremacists, bigots, liars, fully incompetent, corrupt, illegals and conspiracy theorists. With Trump, Russia is winning.
The February 8, 2018 example. Rob Porter, dating Hope Hicks, interfaces with Trump every day all day long, filtering all documents to and from Trump. Turns out that Porter beat his 2 wives, including dragging one of his wives naked out of the shower to beat her up. Because of this record, the FBI recommended to Trump a year ago that Porter not be granted security clearance. Trump disregarded the FBI, and sent Chief of Staff John Kelly out to rave what a great guy Porter is. Wife beating is a qualification, not disqualification, for Trump.
Trump has built a mountain of fake news. Trump refuses to do anything to fend off Russia's invasion of the US. Anything to damage America.
February 6: Trump announced that he would love to shut down the US government. Russia licks its lips.
February 6: Trump ordered the Pentagon to perform a military parade for him, costing millions of dollars. Like Nazi, North Korean and Russian dictators, Trump wants to parade the best in military weapons, his penis envy, to prove his power, adding to his weakness of calling everyone juvenile names. Shame on America.
February 5: The largest drop in the US stock market happened today. Under Trump. But, he has a plan to bring it back. Deport Latinos, cause a nuclear war, fire the Department of Justice and FBI, enslave African Americans, make the US borrow trillions of dollars from China, merge the US with Russia and build a useless-but-glorious wall.
February 5: Trump the racist claimed that African American US Representatives and Senators committed treason for not applauding his racist remarks.
Dishonesty and immorality personified. Trump. A traitor to America, families and citizenship.
February 4: Roy Cohn, lawyer, hatchet man and inspiration for Joe McCarthy, John Gotti and Donald Trump. What a genealogy.
February 4: Trump hates the FBI and wants Americans to feel likewise, and his fellow criminals to prosper by trashing the FBI for their defenses too. Overnight, Trump attacked the FBI again. "The FBI became a tool of anti-Trump political actors. This is unacceptable in a democracy and ought to alarm anyone who wants the FBI to be a nonpartisan enforcer of the law....The FBI wasn’t straight with Congress, as it hid most of these facts from investigators."
February 4: Trump sent his co-conspirators out to lie, insisting that Trump's foreign policy advisor, Carter Page, had nothing to do with Russia. He only went to Russia over and over for coffee and donuts. (Trump's infamous 'memo' he concocted to derail the Meuller investigation, was all about Page and nothing about the Meuller investigation.) HOWEVER, Trump's appeal for Page was all about Russia. Page, who now denies he spoke the Russian spies again and again but was targeted for espionage surveillance 4 times by a federal judge, noted in his August 25, 2013 letter to Academic Press, "Over the past half year, I have had the privilege to serve as an informal advisor to the staff of the Kremlin in preparation for their Presidency of the G-20 Summit next month, where energy issues will be a prominent point on the agenda." In June 2013, the FBI interviewed Page regarding his contacts with the Russians, Page says. The FBI believed that Russian intelligence services had attempted to recruit Page as an agent with promises of business opportunities in Russia, according to the 2015 court documents. Two months after his meeting with the FBI, Page sent the letter claiming to be a Kremlin adviser. Also in 2013, met with and passed documents to a Russian intelligence operative in New York City in 2013. Page's letter to Academic Press is not the first example of Page touting his relationship with Russia. The U.S. Embassy in Turkmenistan sent a cable to the U.S. State Department describing how Page had met with government officials in the country, which was formerly part of the Soviet Union, about working for their oil companies. The cable described how he touted his work with the Russian-run company Gazprom. Trump wanted and needed conduits to Russia's spies. Page was one of them.
February 3: "After more than a decade of service, which included investigating terrorism, working to rescue kidnapping victims overseas and being special assistant to the director, I am reluctantly turning in my badge and leaving an organization I love. Why? So I can join the growing chorus of people who believe that the relentless attacks on the bureau undermine not just America’s premier law enforcement agency but also the nation’s security. My resignation is painful, but the alternative of remaining quiet while the bureau is tarnished for political gain is impossible." (FBI agent responding to Trump's war with the FBI)
February 2: Trump admitted his guilt. Trump effectively announced that he hired into his illegitimate campaign a Russian foreign agent as a key Trump foreign policy advisor, Carter Page (the convicted Michael Flynn and the indicted Paul Manafort were also foreign agents acting against the US, the number 1 and 2 in Trump's campaign). According to his Trump/Nunes memo, a federal judge approved 4 times with steadily increasing evidence that Page was a Russian spy. Trump released his memo intending to fully derail the investigation of Robert Mueller into Russian interference with the election, Trump collusion with this interference, Trump's obstruction of justice and Trump's money laundering for Russia.
Trump also announced that the investigation against him is bigger than Watergate. Indeed it is. Watergate involved Nixon orchestrating a cover-up of breaking into an office at the Watergate hotel. Trump is orchestrating treason, criminal conspiracy, obstruction of justice, destruction of DOJ/FBI, money laundering with Russia and degradation of the presidency and America to benefit Russia. Nixon' obstruction of justice and war with the FBI was secret; Trump's obstruction and war is paraded around like a flashy mafia car.
So obsessed with the 'memo' engineered to prove that the Mueller investigation is based on the 'Steele Dossier', Trump failed to read the last paragraph of the 'memo', which confirmed that the investigation began with the Trump campaign bragging about its Russian collusion months before the 'dossier' existed. (The White House announced that Trump was left alone for hours to read the 'memo' before authorizing its release.)
February 2: The Trump/Nunes 'memo' is a big fat fizzle, a wild goose chase and fake news...and further proof of Trump's obstruction of justice, a serious crime. The memo was the best Trump could do to deflect his treason and crimes. Because the Trump campaign began bragging internationally about its collusion with Russia by April 2016, DOJ/FBI opened an investigation in July. Trump/Nunes, however, focus on a federal judge approved investigation for good cause that began October 21, 2016 involving Trump campaign official Carter Page's recurring trips to Russia to meet with Russian spies. A federal judge renewed approval 3 times, spanning approval from October 2016 to October 2017 (2 of the approvals occurred after Trump took office). Notably, some of the information reviewed by the judge included a 'dossier' assembled by Christopher Steele that was given Mother Jones magazine October 31, 2016 and to Senator John McCain in December 2016. McCain took it directly to FBI director James Comey on December 9, 2016. The memo further confirmed solid evidence that DOJ/FBI had months earlier. Amazingly, Trump/Nunes are marketing the lie that October-December 2016 information created the July 2016 DOJ/FBI investigation. Obviously, Trump/Nunes need training about the calendar, that July occurs months before October and December.
James Comey's response. "That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs."
Senator John McCain's response. "The latest attacks on the FBI and Department of Justice serve no American interests – no party’s, no president’s, only Putin’s."
February 2: Trump is against the leadership of the FBI and Department of Justice, Republicans who he appointed, alleging thet abused their surveillance tools, claiming the government agencies "politicized the sacred investigative process in favor of Democrats and against Republicans." Trump cannot stop obstucting justice and committing crimes.
February 1: Russia's primary treasonous co-conspirators against the United States: Donald Trump, John Kelly, Devin Nunes, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell. These elected Republicans and others are siding with Russia against the US. Today, Trump is assuring his co-conspirators that his obstruction of justice, eg releasing lies about national security (the distorted, falsified Nunes memo prepared in illegal collaboration with Trump), will discredit justice.
Don Jr, Trump's son who eagerly colluded with Russians, announced that Assistant FBI Director Andrew McCabe was fired to protect Trump Sr.
The FBI Agents Association issued a statement in support of FBI Director Christopher Wray who Trump is desperately attacking. The FBI Director of James Comey, fired by Trump in his ongoing obstruction of justice to cover up his treasonous collusion with Russia, applauded FBI agents, "All should appreciate the FBI speaking up. I wish more of our leaders would. But take heart: American history shows that, in the long run, weasels and liars never hold the field, so long as good people stand up. Not a lot of schools or streets named for Joe McCarthy."
January 31: A classic Trump supporter. Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren called Representative Joe Kennedy "a little whimp dick."
January 31: It has become clear that Trump and his congressional co-conspirators do not care about their place in America's history because they seek to overthrow America, replacing it with autocracy, just what America rebelled against in 1776. Last night, in stark disagreement with HIS Department of Justice and FBI, Trump announced that he will release falsified collection of lies and classified information, the Nunes memo, to degrade the DOJ, FBI and US national security. Trump will do what Edward Snowden did for which Snowden was called a traitor, but worse - an action specifically designed to disintegrate DOJ, FBI and national intelligence. And, last night, Trump called for Congress to give him the power to fire anyone he does not like. Yesterday, Trump demanded loyalty from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. And, Trump is returning to his campaign theme to arrest his rivals. Trump's neo-Nazi white supremacists will handle the non-whites, called rapists and criminals by Trump, in the streets. Trump's meeting with Russian spies last week was most productive for Vladimir Putin. History books will say that 'there use to be a country known as America'.
Trump is setting the stage for the Second Civil War, Americans vs pro-Russian, pro-dictator, pro-Nazi white supremacists.
January 31: After a top Russian spy, Sergey Naryshkin, the director of Russia's foreign intelligence service, met with Trump or his designee last week, Trump violated US law almost unanimously passed by Congress to sanction Russia for interfering with the 2016 election. Trump refused to implement the sanctions. And, Trump has yet to implement any protections against further US election interference. Trump is such a deal maker.
January 30: About playing golf with Trump, a professional golfer said, "He cheats like hell … so I don’t quite know how he is in business. They say that if you cheat at golf, you cheat at business. I’m pretty sure he pays his caddie well, since no matter how far into the woods he hits the ball, it’s in the middle of the fairway when we get there."
January 29: HISTORICAL BREAKING NEWS. Trump invented a plot to destroy the DOJ and FBI in his treasonous plan to derail investigation of his collusion with Russia, obstruction of justice and money laundering. Against objections from DOJ/FBI, Trump 1) will release a falsified memo discrediting DOJ/FBI and endanger national security in doing so (DOJ said that releasing Trump-inspired memo against the DOJ/FBI abusing and distorting classified information would be reckless), and 2) created formal congressional investigation of his DOJ/FBI, insisting that they are corrupt organizations. Trump makes Nixon look like a novice and will have an even darker place in history.
Trump also violated law, refusing to implement mandated sanctions against Russia for interfering in the election FOR Trump.
Congressional Republicans, especially in the House, have switched from allegiance to the United States to agents of Russia to take down America.
Personal self defense vs national security, national security loses.
January 29: Trump forced Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe out of his job because he would not swear loyalty to Trump rather than the US Constitution. Last year, Trump told McCabe that his wife was a loser. Trump despises ethics and women.
January 29: Trump, his White House staff, his congressional co-conspirators and his anti-American supporters are panicking at the prospect of Trump testifying to Robert Mueller. All believe that he will lie again and again. On average, Trump lies 6 times every day to the American people. (one of today's lies: Trump claimed that the polar ice caps are not melting but are at record levels; in fact, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said 2017 was one of the planet's warmest years on record. A NASA report last year found that the sea ice extent on both poles had reached the lowest levels since the data began to be recorded in 1979.
Trump creates his own delusional reality. Truth is banned.
January 29: Trump abuses show we must turn traditions into laws. One year into the Trump presidency, it’s clear that the norms and boundaries traditionally guiding American political behavior have deeply eroded. So far, President Trump has refused to divorce himself from his business interests, despite decades of tradition. He has repeatedly tried to influence federal criminal investigations. Policymaking processes have become haphazard. And we now see worrisome attacks on the independent press. All this shows just how easily a chief executive can ignore the unwritten rules that typically constrain presidents. So it’s not too early to begin mapping out needed change. The longer we wait, the more damage our system will sustain. It’s not enough to read news stories — or tweets — and fret. Our system is facing a challenge it has not faced in decades. These norms of liberal democracy are being pummeled around the world, as well. At a moment like this, perhaps it is a good thing to break the norm of partisanship. (Preet Bharara (US Attorney firedt by Trump and Christine Todd Whitman(former Republican Governor)
January 28: Trump loves Putin, sorry Melania. Trump loves that Putin can jail and kill his rivals. Today, Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny was arrested by Putin. Trump wishes to obsession that he could arrest Hillary Clinton and journalists throughout the US.
Tonight, in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was built by dreamers, for dreamers, chasing the American dream. (Camilla Cabello, 2018 Grammys)
Parents must keep their children away from Trump because of his vulgarity, racism, sexism, promotion of sexual abuse and abusers, danger, sociopathy, aggressive self aggrandizement, extreme self centeredness and recklessness. Trump is the worst influence children could have, a terrible role model teaching their children immorality and a pervert intent on damaging their lives for his ego gratification.
January 28: In addition to collusion with Trump's family, Russia used twitter bots heavily (twitter bot: software to automatically perform actions such as tweeting, retweeting, liking, following, unfollowing, or direct messaging other accounts). Millions of such fake messages were sent by Russia. Trump voters were suckered by Russia's fake election.
On his way home from Independence Hall where the US Constitution was created, a woman, Elizabeth Powell, asked Benjamin Franklin what sort of government had we created. Franklin replied, "A Republic, IF you can keep it." Let's hope Trump is only a test. Better yet, let's do something about it.
January 27: Trump went to Davos, Switzerland to defame the United States as a greedy, exploitative, war hungry, fraudulent, racist, neo-Nazi, white supremacist, anti-African, anti-Latino, anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, anti-trade, pro-Russia, pro-nuclear war, anti-environmental, anti-science, misogynist enemy who is actively undermining US democracy, values, rule of law and Constitution. For Trump, the world is an object to plunder for its riches at the cost of other countries to enrich corporations and barons in the US. Trump and his freak show portrayed the US not as a shining city on a hill but as an apocalyptic scheming empire. No wonder the audience booed him, many walked out and few applauded him. No wonder the Guggenheim Museum offered Trump a solid gold toilet. The US is in sad decline.
There is far more to life and America than money. On our death bed, luckily long before, we realize this. Money is meaningless beyond necessities compared to life itself, family, children, dreams, faith, integrity, truth, American ideals, freedom, democracy, helping others or the US Constitution.
January 26: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Conspiracy. This many people exposing themselves to perjury over Russia can’t be a coincidence. The Trump team has long engaged in a concerted effort to lie about campaign contacts with Russians during the 2016 election. (Slate)
January 26: Nikki Hailey, Trump's Ambassador to the UN, said that having an affair with Trump would be disgusting.
January 26: Delusional Trump sees his freak show in Davos, Switzerland as a glorious ceremony of his magnificence like the Academy Awards (which he despises) but with a lot more cameras. The Davos crowds are simply gawking at a freak.
January 26: So far, Trump has fired an Attorney General, an FBI Director and US Attorneys investigating him and has ordered the firing of a Special Prosecutor, an Assistant FBI Director and another Attorney General. So far, 4 of his top advisors have been indicted, 2 have been convicted, and dozens have retained lawyers to defend them in criminal investigation. So far, Trump has done nothing to constrain Russia's interference with US elections. Incidentally, Trump has also scared the world with threats of nuclear war, promoted white supremacy and racism, and focused on deporting non-whites from the US.
January 26: Trump Ordered Mueller Fired, but Backed Off When White House Counsel Threatened to Quit. Trump ordered the firing last June of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the Russia investigation, according to four people told of the matter, but ultimately backed down after the White House counsel threatened to resign rather than carry out the directive. Mr. McGahn disagreed with the president’s case and told senior White House officials that firing Mr. Mueller would have a catastrophic effect on Mr. Trump’s presidency. Mr. McGahn also told White House officials that Mr. Trump would not follow through on the dismissal on his own. The president then backed off. (New York Times)
Predictably, Trump, Kellyanne Conway and top Trump lawyer John Dowd lied last August, falsely claiming that Trump never considered firing Mueller. Lying is the core White House policy.
Trump also wants to fire Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein -- who oversees Mueller and the special counsel investigation -- in recent weeks, according to four sources familiar with the situation. At times, Trump even gripes about wanting Rosenstein removed, two of those sources said. One source said Trump makes comments like "let's fire him, let's get rid of him" before his advisers convince him it's an ill-fated idea.
January 25: Yesterday, Trump boasted his eagerness to testify under oath to questions posed by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. Trump supporters panicked. Realizing that Trump mostly lies, they know that Trump will lie to Mueller. They know Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. They know that Trump is heavily involved with Russian money laundering. They fear that Trump will brag about his crimes to Mueller and lie about them as well.
Trump said that his obstruction of justice is just his way of fighting back.
January 25: The Guggenheim Museum offered Trump a solid gold toilet from its collection as a "long-term loan" for the White House. Trump had asked to borrow a Van Gogh painting from the museum, but the Guggenheim responded that it could not accommodate the request and offered the toilet instead. Bravo Guggenheim.
January 25: Trump has made it the official policy of the US to ridicule people with demeaning names, Little Marco, Lyin' Ted, Sneaky Diane, Crooked Hillary, Dicky Durban, Cryin' Schumer. Trump especially likes to ridicule women. Today, his administration called an African American woman reporter Miss Piggy.
January 25: Trump announced that he is "looking forward to" testifying under oath to Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. Hope we get to see the video.
January 24: To the joy of Russia, China and North Korea and to the shock of the rest of the world Trump convinced his corrupt collaborators in congress to announce that there is a secret society society in the US FBI and DOJ to overthrow the President of the United States with Robert Mueller one of its leaders. A coup d'etat is taking place in the US! Trump's anti-American collaborators also profess to have a secret classified memo proving their claim that they will not allow congress, members or chairs of congressional intelligence committees, the FBI, the DOJ or the public see. Russia and partner Donald Trump Jr. are applauding the falsified memo intended to damage America.
January 24: Trump declared war on the U.S. dollar on Wednesday, thus increasing the value of foreign money to boost foreign purchasing power and wealth. Trump needs those profits for his foreign businesses.
January 24: Trump, a pervert like 'Dr.' Larry Nassar, who sexually assaulted at least 170 young women. Trump bragged about grabbing young women's genitals and getting away with it, and even convinced women supporting his election to invite similar illicit grabbing (and, Trump bragged that he wanted to date his daughter when she was an early teenager and how great her body was). Trump and Nassar both relied upon enablers, white evangelicals and extremist media outlets and politicians in Trump's case. Both are accomplished liars. Both denied his sexual assaults and denigrated his victims. Both claimed that his sexual assaults were misunderstood and fake news, that he did not actually abuse anyone. Both demeaned his family. Today, Nassar's life in prison was extended 175 years for his sexual assaults of young women in addition to 60 years already imposed for child pornography. Perhaps, Trump will not succeed in his crimes against women (and America) and thus join Nassar in prison and infamy.
White evangelicals don't care that Trump had an affair with a porn star after marrying a third time and paid her $130,000 hush money just before the election, insisting that Trump has changed, contradicting all evidence, into a good man.
Notably, Trump's prowess with sexual assault and demeaning treatment of his victims helped bolster the strong societal movement to prevent sexual abuse.
January 24: Trump has delegated most of his duties to his appointees so that he can expand his busnesses, watch TV, tweet, attack DOJ and FBI, undermine the US Constitution and rule of law, and deport non-whites from the US.
January 24: Trump's National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and now convicted felon, met with the FBI January 24, 2017 in his White House Office. January 26, 2017, Attorney General Sally Yates told White House Counsel Don McGahn that Flynn's FBI testimony "was problematic" and posed a risk for blackmail by Russia. McGahn said that he immediately informed Trump. January 27, 2017, McGahan discussed with Yates prosecution of Flynn. The same day, Trump fired Yates. Trump then met with FBI Director James Comey several times, ordering Comey to end investigation into Flynn. Because Comey refused, Trump fired him May 8, 2017. May 17, 2017, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller was appointed to continue investigation into Trump's collusion with Russia to achieve election, obstruction of justice and degradation of America.
January 24: Tourism to the United States has dropped 4% since Trump took office, an office that he graffitis with obscenity. Travel spending has dropped by 3.3 percent, or $4.6 billion, and 40,000 jobs have been lost.
January 24: Russia threat should unite us, not divide us: “It’s not about Republicans or Democrats. They’re coming after America, which I hope we all love equally... And they will be back, because we remain...that shining city on the hill, and they don’t like it. “ Me (Senate Intel 6/8/17) (James Comey, fired by Trump for thinking like this)
January 24: Characteristic of a criminal unable to handle their guilt, Trump attacks his perceived accusers. To deflect his most serious crimes, treason and obstruction of justice, Trump magnifies them by attacking the FBI and Department of Justice. For Trump, they represent a "deep state" and "secret society" determined to get rid of him. Trump's real nemeses are the US Constitution and the rules of law and decency.
Today's example of Trump's obstruction of justice is that he ordered, via Attorney General Jeff Sessions, of FBI Director Christopher Wray to fire FBI Assistant Director Andrew McCabe because McCabe was one of those told by Comey of Trump's obstruction of justice. Wray refused Trump's order and threatened to resign. A year ago, FBI Director James Comey refused Trump's order to obstruct justice and was fired by Trump.
Trump state television, Fox News, called for war against the FBI and Dept. of Justice. Trump congressional collaborators call them corrupt and an enemy of the people.
January 23: Breaking news. Trump's CIA Director announced that Trump can understand national security briefings, even though they are watered down to a page or two and are not allowed to mention Russia. Amazingly, Trump does not understand that his rantings against the DOJ and FBI reveal his consciousness of guilt of high crimes against the US.
January 22: Three days of government shut down. Trump is missing in action, mumbling around in the White House residence eating pizza cheese and oreos in his bathrobe. His own staff thinks Trump is incapable of running the government, reversing his squeaks. Pathetic trashing of America. On the global stage, Trump is a dangerous joke.
January 21: Trump closed the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the state of New York will reopen them. “We will not stand by as this symbol of freedom and opportunity goes dark.”
Government is not the problem, politicians are.
Can anyone seriously say they would buy a used car from Trump?
January 20: #TrumpShutDown is the number one tweet in the world.
Following up on last year's march the day after Trump took office, the world's largest protest march ever, women are marching around the world today for democracy, for the environment, for the free press, for the truth, against racism and bigotry, against sexual assault and especially against Trump, the world's most infamous perpetrator of racism, bigotry, sexual assault, democracy/free press assault and lying.
Bravo to them. The are the brighest lights for America and democracy. Millions of women and their supporters protested Trump around the world. Cities streamed with bravery against treachery. He can't to get to his million-dollar party from him to him in Palm Beach.
January 20: Republicans and Russians are collaborating again, this time for release of a 'memo' that is supposed to send FBI managers to jail. Any one willing to bet that it will?
Trump turned the Republican Party into a bunch of racists incapable of running the government that succumbed to 50,000+ Twitter accounts. Trump turned Americans away from America: Twitter informed 677,775 people that they liked, retweeted or followed Russian-linked accounts.
January 20: To celebrate his first anniversary of ruining the office of the president, Trump found a new way to hurt Americans and the United States. He shut down the government over his hate for Latinos, in particular now Latino children working, going to college and contributing to their US home. Trump's terminating DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) 4 months ago set the stage for Trump's shutdown...the first time in US history for a shutdown under a political party controlling both houses of congress and the presidency.
Trump proved he did not write 'his' book, The Art of the Deal. He turned away bipartisan deals to avoid TRUMP'S SHUTDOWN.
2,400 Trump tweets accumulated their hate and attacks to poison Congress.
Notably, Senate leader Republican Mitch McConnell joined 4 other Republicans (Jeff Flake, Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Lindsay Graham) and all but 5 Democrats to reject the House bill endorsed by Trump to delay a fourth time in 4 months to approve government funding.
Russia and China are celebrating with Trump, all three determined to undermine the US.
January 19: Trump's principle congressional co-conspirators to cover-up Trump's treason: House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).
January 19: More illegal cover-up of Trump's crimes by Trump, who told Steve Bannon to not testify to a congressional committee about Trump's campaign treason.
January 19: More profits for Trump. He is selling $100,000 tickets for a party for him at taxpayer expense.
January 19: In sworn congressional testimony, Glenn Simpson, the co-founder of the firm behind the so-called “Steele dossier,” testified that there were a constellation of business deals showing Russians laundering money through then-candidate Donald Trump.
Also, The FBI is investigating a top Russian banker who illegally gave money to the National Rifle Association (NRA) in an effort to tilt the election to Trump during the 2016 presidential race.
Crimes and lies.
January 18:Trump is bragging that he is the smartest president because of a cognitive test, which does not measure intelligence, that indicated that Trump could tell what time it is and could identify a lion, giraffe, and rhinoceros. So proud we are. But, can he tie his own shoes and hang up his own clothes? Certainly, his intellect and morality are minuscule.
Last week, the US CIA announced that Trump could read. But, outside of Twitter he doesn't. Trump's CIA is so helpful.
The more one is a racist, does not read, does not inspire others, does not produce, does not care about others, does not respect intelligence, does not recognize benefits of international affairs, admires the use of guns to kill innocent people (especially African Americans), ignores crimes against humanity and consumers, the more one supports Trump.
January 18: Imagine if Trump were a CEO of a public company. He would be fired and ultimately jailed. Imagine a CEO who spends a couple hours a day on Twitter and several hours a day watching TV, spending several hours a day attacking his employees and business partners, spending on average 2 days a week on one of his business golf courses, deporting non-white employees, lobbying foreign governments not for the company but for personal gain, promoting bank fraud, lying about everything, slashing health insurance benefits, promoting racism and sexual assault, bragging about dating his daughter, pervertedly describing her body, and sexual assault, and colluding with adversaries against his company.
January 18: In 2011, the porn star Trump had a 2006 affair with, after married to wife #3 Melania, reported that Trump compared her to his daughter Ivanka. Trump boasted on radio that he wanted to date Ivanka and she had great boobs and ass. In 2016, Trump paid her $130,000 hush money to shut up. Trump created a fake company a couple weeks before elections day to funnel the hush money to the porn star. (all according to the Wall Street Journal)
According to porn star Stormy Daniels, she and Trump first met at a golf tournament in Lake Tahoe in July 2006, just four months after his youngest son Barron was born. Trump asked for Daniels’ number and invited her to dinner. When she arrived, he was wearing sweatpants, and they ended up eating in his hotel room. She excused herself to the bathroom and when she emerged, Daniels told InTouch Magazine in 2011that Trump was sitting on the bed and invited her to join him. “Ugh, here we go,” thought Daniels. She described the sex as “textbook generic" and that he liked to be spanked with a Forbes magazine. Daniels said in 2011 that after the encounter, Trump kept saying: “ ‘I’m gonna call you, I’m gonna call you. I have to see you again. You’re amazing. We have to get you on The Apprentice.’”
January 18: Trump's Chief of Staff John Kelly said that Trump lied during the campaign, duping voters (of course, Kelly was politically correct, saying Trump was " notfully informed" about the impossibilities of his wall and Mexican purchase). There will be no glorious wall and Mexico will not pay for it, the 2 central promises of Trump. Trump's voters will realize eventually that they have been manimpulated into patsies, electing a fraudulent corrupt hater of America. We must figure out why we succomb so easily to politician's and dictator's lies.
Trump went into a temper tantrum at Kelly, because for every thousand lies, something true escapes.
January 17: Republican Senator Jeff Flake. "Mr. President, near the beginning of the document that made us free, our Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson wrote: "We hold these truths to be self-evident..." So, from our very beginnings, our freedom has been predicated on truth. The founders were visionary in this regard, understanding well that good faith and shared facts between the governed and the government would be the very basis of this ongoing idea of America. It is for that reason that I rise today, to talk about the truth, and its relationship to democracy. For without truth, and a principled fidelity to truth and to shared facts, Mr. President, our democracy will not last. 2017 was a year which saw the truth – objective, empirical, evidence-based truth -- more battered and abused than any other in the history of our country, at the hands of the most powerful figure in our government. It was a year which saw the White House enshrine "alternative facts" into the American lexicon, as justification for what used to be known simply as good old-fashioned falsehoods. It was the year in which an unrelenting daily assault on the constitutionally-protected free press was launched by that same White House, an assault that is as unprecedented as it is unwarranted. "The enemy of the people," was what the president of the United States called the free press in 2017. Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own president uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies. It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase "enemy of the people," that even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of "annihilating such individuals" who disagreed with the supreme leader. Mr. President, so powerful is the presidency that the damage done by the sustained attack on the truth will not be confined to the president's time in office. It is not my purpose here to inventory all of the official untruths of the past year. But a brief survey is in order. Some untruths are trivial – such as the bizarre contention regarding the crowd size at last year's inaugural. But many untruths are not at all trivial – such as the seminal untruth of the president's political career - the oft-repeated conspiracy about the birthplace of President Obama. Also not trivial are the equally pernicious fantasies about rigged elections and massive voter fraud, which are as destructive as they are inaccurate – to the effort to undermine confidence in the federal courts, federal law enforcement, the intelligence community and the free press, to perhaps the most vexing untruth of all – the supposed "hoax" at the heart of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. To be very clear, to call the Russia matter a "hoax" – as the president has many times – is a falsehood. We know that the attacks orchestrated by the Russian government during the election were real and constitute a grave threat to both American sovereignty and to our national security. It is in the interest of every American to get to the bottom of this matter, wherever the investigation leads. Ignoring or denying the truth about hostile Russian intentions toward the United States leaves us vulnerable to further attacks. We are told by our intelligence agencies that those attacks are ongoing, yet it has recently been reported that there has not been a single cabinet-level meeting regarding Russian interference and how to defend America against these attacks. Not one. What might seem like a casual and routine untruth – so casual and routine that it has by now become the white noise of Washington - is in fact a serious lapse in the defense of our country. Mr. President, let us be clear. The impulses underlying the dissemination of such untruths are not benign. They have the effect of eroding trust in our vital institutions and conditioning the public to no longer trust them. The destructive effect of this kind of behavior on our democracy cannot be overstated. Not only has the past year seen an American president borrow despotic language to refer to the free press, but it seems he has in turn inspired dictators and authoritarians with his own language. This is reprehensible. In our own country, from the trivial to the truly dangerous, it is the range and regularity of the untruths we see that should be cause for profound alarm, and spur to action. Add to that the by-now predictable habit of calling true things false, and false things true, and we have a recipe for disaster. Mr. President, the question of why the truth is now under such assault may well be for historians to determine. But for those who cherish American constitutional democracy, what matters is the effect on America and her people and her standing in an increasingly unstable world -- made all the more unstable by these very fabrications. What matters is the daily disassembling of our democratic institutions."
While most Republicans agree with Flake in private, they hide from the truth and fake it in public. History will record their conspiracy against America.
January 16: Shithole Trump, or is that shithouse? Trump claims he said neither, while bragging about saying it to his friends. People in the room head it. People around the world heard it. But, Trump can't handle the truth, and sent his Homeland Security Secretary to a congressional hearing to commit purgery. Over and over, the Secretary was asked about Trump's comment. Over and over, she denied he said it, instead blaming other all the other people in the room using tough talk and yelling cuss words and vulgarity, none of which she said she could remember. However, she did say that she heard Senator Graham repeat Trump's shithole/shithouse words when scolding Trump about using them. But, she lied, insisting Trump did not use the words that Graham repeated back to Trump. (While the first name of the Secretary is a Nordic name, the Secretary denied knowing that Norway has mostly white people. Trump prefers people from Norway rather than from countries predominantly non-white.)
January 15: After living in the U.S. for 30 years, a 39-year-old immigrant in metro Detroit was deported this morning to Mexico. Escorted by Trump's ICE agents, he said bye to wife and 2 kids before boarding. He was brought to US from Mexico when he was 10-yrs-old, too old to qualify for DACA. Racist Trump wants only whites in the US.
January 15: Trump celebrated Martin Luther King Day by running away from tradition to honor the day, instead making taxpayers pay hundreds of thousands of dollars for him to go to Florida to play golf at his posh racist Mar-a-Lago mansion. Golf is more important to Trump than America. (In 2015-2016, Trump ridiculed Barrack Obama for occasionally playing golf and promised not to ever play golf but work full time. One of the many lies that swayed his racist voters. Trump has played golf one third of his days in office...at one of his posh properties of course at millions of dollars taxpayer expense to market Trump golf courses.)
January 15: On this Martin Luther King day, Trump racism is on display, targeting Africans and Latinos for ridicule, blame and violence.
It will be impossible to adequately explain in decades to come just what it was like to be alive in the exhausting first year of Donald Trump's presidency. From the moment he trampled the unifying conventions of the inaugural address by decrying "American carnage," Trump shattered political normality, tearing at racial and societal divides, the limits and decorum of his office, even raising doubts about his fidelity to the nation's founding values. If there is one underlying theme of Trump's first year, it is his willingness -- whether in his disregard for ethics norms relating to his business empire or his belief that he has the "absolute right" to do what he wants with the Justice Department -- to flout every expectation and constraint of his office. It's a trend evident in his assault on institutions that act as checks on his power, like the intelligence agencies, the judiciary and the press, that will bear the scars after he has left the Oval Office. "He is a dictator in waiting, he talks as a dictator and he will do whatever he wants," said David Kay Johnston, whose book "It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration is Doing to America" concludes that Trump is unique in being the only US president not to pursue policies in the national interest. Trump remains uncouth, unrestrained and unrepentant. That's why his second year is likely to be even more draining and disruptive than his first. (CNN)
And, Trump is ruining the reputation of the US around the world.
January 14: Like Trump KKK supporters do against African Americans, Trump supporters in England built a gallows to hang London's Mayor, a Muslim. Racists uber alles.
January 14: Trump is bold, a bold liar. Lying about everything big and small, Trump had White House operations create a graphic proclaiming that the Wall Street Journal is fake news, claiming the Journal misquoted him. However, like the Journal itself, Trump's "official" recording of the interview matched that of the Journal proving that he was NOT misquoted. Indeed, Trump said he HAS a good relationship with Kim Jong Un, and bragged to his friends that he said it claiming that it would play well with his racist base. Similarly, he lies about his treason, attempting to claim his treason is not treason, his collusion is not collusion, his criminal conspiracy is not a crime. In the bold face of the truth, Trump lies to trash America.
January 14: The German magazine Der Spiegel mocked Trump on its latest cover this week, depicting by illustration Trump as an devolved man to a creature before apes.
January 14: Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona is expected to deliver a floor speech on Wednesday in which he will compare Trump's attacks on the news media to the rhetoric of late Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin. According to an excerpt of the speech, Flake will criticize the President for calling the news media the "enemy of the people," calling it "an assault as unprecedented as it is unwarranted." "Mr. President, it is a testament to the condition of our democracy that our own President uses words infamously spoken by Josef Stalin to describe his enemies," reads the excerpt. "It bears noting that so fraught with malice was the phrase 'enemy of the people,' that even Nikita Khrushchev forbade its use, telling the Soviet Communist Party that the phrase had been introduced by Stalin for the purpose of 'annihilating such individuals' who disagreed with the supreme leader." Flake's prepared speech goes on to say the President's actions should be "a great source of shame" for the Senate and the members of the Republican Party. "The free press is the despot's enemy, which makes the free press the guardian of democracy," Flake's remarks say. "When a figure in power reflexively calls any press that doesn't suit him 'fake news,' it is that person who should be the figure of suspicion, not the press."
Because of Trump, the official policies of the US are racism, white supremacy, corporate crime crime, sex abuse, broken health care, harm to the environment, denigration of federal law enforcement and national security, Russian interests, Stalinism, lying, cheating, corruption, breaking the US Constitution, imprisoning the press and political opponents, and treason.
January 14: The debasement of the office of the President of the United States of America is a tragedy. Trump has stained our national honor with his overt and unabashed racism. The people defending him on TV look like fools. The Trump faction in America accounts for between 32-36 percent of voters. The overwhelming majority of our fellow citizens are aghast at the racism, malevolence, chaos and corruption of this administration. November 2018 will present an opportunity to deliver a massive. Repudiation of Trumpism. Fire is part of the natural life cycle of the forest. It destroys the forest but also purifies and renews it so that the cycle of life can begin again. So it must be for the Trump-Republican party. Only through repudiation and defeat can it be renewed. The corrupted, rotten and complicit Republican majority that is abetting this Presidents damage to our institutions, national security and domestic tranquility must face electoral anhialation. A massive coalition of Democrats, independent and appalled Republicans must come together to deliver a message to the world that the American people will defend our Republic and the inheritance bequeathed to us by previous generations. A righteous anger is building in this country and it must be channeled into the 2018 elections. Enough. Defeat them all. (Steve Schmidt)
January 13: Trying to divert attention from his sociopathy and treason, Trump terrified the world by inducing alarms throughout Hawaii that a nuclear missile was inbound. Cell phone alerts, electronic road signs and radio/TV emergency alerts. Thousands prepared to die. Thousands panicked. "Ballistic missile inbound to Hawaii. Seek immediate shelter. This is not a drill." This could have been a pretext for Trump to release nuclear missiles himself but averted by commanders refusing to carry out Trump's order. This past week, reports noted that Trump was considering a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. It took 38 minutes for the system to realize it was a false alarm. Missiles in the hands of Trump are dangerous. We need rational and credible people in control.
Trump's next job will be either in prison, in Russia or as KKK Grand Wizard.
January 13: While Trump encourages Russia's interference in US elections, Russia is condemning Trump's interference in Russian elections.
January 13: Presidential historian Douglas Brinkley dubbed Trump's the most racist president since Woodrow Wilson following Trump's remarks referring to Haiti and African nations as "shithole countries." “What Trump is doing has popped up periodically, but in modern times, no president has been so racially insensitive and shown outright disdain for people who aren’t whited.”
January 13: Global leaders denounced Trump's reference to "shithole countries," calling it inaccurate and racist amid bipartisan backlash to the comment from U.S. lawmakers. Haiti's ambassador to the U.S. Paul Altidor said he and the Haitian government "vehemently condemn" Trump's comments, which he said were "based on stereotypes." “The language of @realDonaldTrump that the African continent, Haiti and El Salvador are ‘shithole countries’ is extremely unfortunate. We are certainly not a ‘shithole country,’” Ghana President Nana Akufo-Addo said in a tweet. “We will not accept such insults, even from a leader of a friendly country, no matter how powerful.” El Salvador President Salvador Sanchez Ceren, one of the countries whose emigrants Trump balked at giving shelter in the U.S., reportedly said that he "protests and energetically reject those types of statements." A spokeswoman for The African Union, an international body representing all African nations, said it was "frankly alarmed" by reports of Trump's vulgarity toward African countries.
January 13: All 55 African countries condemned Trump for calling them a "shithole countries." rump's remarks "dishonor the celebrated American creed and respect for diversity and human dignity," and that the administration has a "huge misunderstanding" of the continent.
January 12: "Earlier today the President underwent a physical exam...but Across Washington and much of the world...there is less concern about an update on the President's health, and more about the condition of his soul, tonight." (Jim Acosta, CNN)
A group of more than 70 psychologists, psychiatrists and mental health professionals sent a letter to Trump’s physician, imploring him to include an evaluation of Trump’s neurological health in a physical examination.
January 12: One month before the election, Trump paid a porn star to keep quiet about their sex in 2006, a year after Trump married Melania, the third Mrs. Trump. Trump also paid $150,000 to cover up a sex affair with a Playboy bunny. Steve Bannon said that Trump also "took care" of another 100 women.
January 12: Neo-Nazis and other white supremacists are celebrating Trump's "shithole countries."
January 12: England wins. Trump will not force himself onto London, claiming "Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!" (Trump damns facts. The decision to move the embassy from Grosvenor Square to Nine Elms was made in 2008 under George W. Bush, not Obama. It would have been impossible to retrofit the aging concrete building with the security measures needed, officials said at the time. The real reason: millions would have protest Trump like he is protested in the US.)
January 11: Another Trump con. He billed his son's charity $150,000 in 2016 and $322,000 in 2015. Much of the money goes to Trump's posh golf resorts.
January 11: Russian President Vladimir Putin said today that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un emerged victorious in the latest standoff with South Korea and the United States over Pyongyang's nuclear weapons program.
In response, Trump said he has "very good relationship" with Kim Jong Un.
January 11: "America represents something universal in the human spirit. I received a letter not long ago from a man who said, 'You can go to Japan to live, but you cannot become Japanese. You can go to France to live and not become a Frenchman. You can go to live in Germany or Turkey, and you won't become a German or a Turk.' But then he added, 'Anybody from any corner of the world can come to America to live and become an American.'" (Ronald Reagan, November 7, 1988) Mr. Trump, you are no Ronald Reagan and you are no American. Mr. Trump, get out.
January 11: A severe racist, Trump again kicked the face of the Statue of Liberty and stabbed the heart of America to the glee of his congressional co-conspirators. Trump despises entry into the US from non-white countries that he calls "shithole countries." Trump wants a US in the image of the KKK and has taught our children another vulgarity.
Trump demonstrated racism again and again. He called for hanging 5 innocent African American teenagers, promoted red-lining 'colored' people from his rentals, claimed President Obama was born in Kenya, called for banning Muslims, mocks Muslims in the US military and their families, said that Nigerians in the US should go back to their huts, said all Haitians have AIDS and should get out of the US, started his campaign claiming Mexicans were criminals and rapists, said African Americans are hopeless, denigrates African Americans in Congress, said a judge with Mexican parents is incompetent, says that Native Americans are targets for ridicule, says that only whites are legitimate immigrants, caters to racists, defends bigots, and said that white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the KKK are fine people.
Trump has turned the Oval Office and is turning the United States into a shithole.
Trump's message to the world. If you are non-white, stay out and get out. The US is a white supremacist country (where corporate crime, enrichening the rich, sexual assault, bigotry and racism are its values).
"Your mouth is the foulest shithole in the world. With what authority do you proclaim who’s welcome in America and who’s not. America’s greatness is built on diversity, or have you forgotten your immigrant background, Donald?" (Mexico President Vincente Fox)
"Trump has shit for brains. Trump spews vicious slur against immigrants." (New York Daily News cover)
A federal court ruled against Trump's DACA ban because of Trump's "racial animus towards Mexicans and Latinos was a motivating factor in the decision to end DACA."
The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights condemned Trump for calling Haiti, El Salvador and African nations “shithole countries,” saying “there’s no other word one can use but racist” to describe the remarks.
Former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said that “the evidence is incontrovertible” that Trump is a racist.
The president of the NAACP said that "we know that Trump is a racist.
""Lady Liberty, our founding fathers, and generations of right-thinking Americans are all weeping tonight over the atrocious comments attributed to Donald Trump, who continues to demonstrate daily that he is a deeply flawed person." (CIA Director John Brennan)
“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, the wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” This country’s greatness and true genius lies in its diversity. (FBI Director James Comey)
January 11: Trump sold $35 million of real estate in 2017 to secret buyers. We know many of them were Russian.
January 11: Trump claimed that Hillary Clinton colluded with Russia to lose the election.
January 11: According to Kellyanne Conway, Trump has discovered that his glorious racist wall need not be a wall.
January 11: Is Donald Trump mentally fit to be president of the United States? It’s an understandable question, and it’s also beside the point. Rather, we don’t need a medical degree or a psychiatric diagnosis to tell us what is wrong with Mr. Trump. It’s obvious to anyone who listens to him speak, reads his tweets and sees the effects of his behavior — on the presidency, on the nation and its most important institutions, and on the integrity of the global order. Presidents should not, for instance, taunt the leaders of hostile nations with demeaning nicknames and boasts about the size of their “nuclear button.” They should not tweet out videos depicting them violently assaulting their political opponents. They should not fire the F.B.I. director to derail an investigation into their own campaign’s possible collusion with a foreign government to swing the election. And, of course, they shouldn’t have to find themselves talking to reporters to insist that they’re mentally stable. If Mr. Trump were found to have no diagnosable illness, he would be no more fit for the office he holds than he is today. (New York Timed Editorial Board)
January 10: Trump continues to partner with Vladimir Putin against the US. Trump has done NOTHING to deter Russia from ongoing interference in US elections. This is how badly Trump needs money.
A senior National Security Council official proposed withdrawing some U.S. military forces from Eastern Europe as an overture to Vladimir Putin during the early days of the Trump presidency, according to two former administration officials.
January 9: "If he doesn’t call himself a genius, nobody else will." (Senator Lindsay Graham)
January 9: Steve Bannon, Trump's brain, circulated a document in 2015 claiming that Trump was associated with mobsters, detailing years of deals between Trump and figures in organized crime.
January 9: Trump will not allow a psychiatric examination during his annual physical.
January 9: Trump and his congressional collaborators in treason against the United States were proven liars again today. Desperate to derail the investigation of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller and trash the FBI, Trump et al claimed that the FBI created the 'Steele Dossier' to initiate a bogus investigation into a hoax. Facts again proved them wrong and guilty in their conspiracy against the US. The 'dossier' did not initiate FBI's investigation. The FBI did not create the 'dossier'. The FBI is not in tatters and criminal as Trump claims. The 'dossier' was shared with the FBI in August 2016 by Steels because he felt that he learned of a crime and progress and Steele, its assembler, spoke directly to the FBI in September (the 'dossier' is a collection of Russian reports about Trump's collusion with Putin. The FBI found that the 'dossier' corroborated what they learned months earlier, including from the Australian ambassador, who learned May 2016 from what the Trump campaign were negotiating by April with Russia against the US for Trump's election. Thankfully, Senator Dianne Feinstein released the 10-hour testimony of Steele's employer, the Fusion company. This release went around the roadblock Senate conspirators posed to revealing the truth.
Responding to Feinstein, Trump called her "Sneaky Dianne."
January 8: There is a fire at Trump Tower. Burning incriminating documents?
January 8: Russia thinks it is helping Trump by trying to reduce purchases of the book Fire and Fury by Michael Wollf (the book making Trump go ballistic, saying everything is false in the book BUT he believes what the book reported about Trump; notably, the book induced an array of Republican treason collaborators to testify on every news show they could get on that Trump is sane and can read, again and again proving the message of the book - Trump is unfit). Violating publisher trademark rights, Russia's arm Wikileaks released a pdf version of the book.
Consumed by hate over the book because he cannot handle the truth, Trump is staying up all night on Twitter and delaying showing up for his day job until 11:00 am and holding fewer meetings during the day. Worsening psychosis, dementia and immorality on display. And evolving contempt for Trump by White House officials.
January 7: To demonstrate his sociopathy, Trump is deporting an Ohio man who is the only provider and caregiver of a 6-year-old paraplegic boy. The man has lived with the boy's mother since 2014 and is the only father figure the boy has known.
January 6: Trump exploded with many tweets trying, in vein, to prove his sanity. So much a question given the extent of his sociopathy, Trump assured us that he is a "stable genius." So nice he cleared that up. Actually, even this cry out begs therapeutic intervention for Trump.
January 6: Like a banana republic dictator, Trump is determined to jail Hillary Clinton. He has fabricated bogus charges, just like other dictators, and has convinced congressional collaborators to huff and puff the Dept. of Justice to 'investigate' again, this time dreaming up charges for Clinton's arrest. It's working so far. Congressional Republicans demanded. US Attorney General Jeff Sessions fell in line and initiated Trump's bogus scheme.
January 6: Trump whined today, starved for more attention, announcing official US policy that "Actually, throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart. Crooked Hillary Clinton also played these cards very hard and, as everyone knows, went down in flames. I went from VERY successful businessman, to top T.V. Star to President of the United States (on my first try). I think that would qualify as not smart, but genius....and a very stable genius at that!" Nice try. Instead, you broadcast again how small, frightened and unstable you are. Someday, the US will have a president again and history will record his sociopathy and treason.
Like his imaginary 400 pound fat dude sitting on a bed hacking into Clinton campaign computers (actually, it was Russia), Trump sits in his solo bedroom in a gold robe and a dozen TV remote controls and McDonald's wrappers all over the place to dwell for hours everyday watching the news, hunting for inspirations to call into Fox News and to tweet with rants and raves against the truth, American history and values, respect for Women, Clinton, US national intelligence agencies, the FBI, DOJ, Robert Mueller, James Comey, Democrats, Barrack Obama, principled Republicans, the free press, media hosts, television networks, the New York Times, the Washington Post, book authors, Kim Jung Un, Iran, amazon.com, African Americans, Latinos and Muslims. Targeting people with childish names is Trump's prime expertise. On the other hand, Trump is always pro-Putin.
January 6: Trump huddled in the cold weather at Camp David with his Cabinet and top White House officials. All except Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who Trump blames for the investigations into his treason. Strategy session on how and when to fire Sessions (but lead to all of their downfall)?
January 6: Crybaby Trump called Steve Bannon a cry baby. Trump used to call Bannon a friend and great guy and relied upon Bannon as Campaign Director and White House Chief Status and Pied Piper for Trump's white supremacists, neo-Nazis, clansman, anti-Muslims and pro-Russian voters. But Bannon revealed the treason in the campaign, so Trump attacks who he now calls "Sloppy Steve." Divorces can be so "sad."
January 5: In his first year in office, Trump produced fewer jobs than Obama did annually throughout his 8 years. Also, Trump produced less rise in the stock market than Obama, Roosevelt and Truman during their first year in office.
January 4: OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE. Trump had to derail FBI's investigation into Trump's illegitimate election stemming from his collusion with Vladimir Putin to corrupt the election. March 2017, Trump ordered the White House top lawyer, Don McGahn (placed in similar circumstance to John Dean, who held the same position in the Nixon White House), to obstruct justice and command Attorney General Jeff Sessions to not recuse himself from investigation oversight stemming from his own collusion with Russian spies to corrupt the election (Trump knew that Sessions’s recusal led to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointing special counsel Robert Mueller to head the Russia investigation.). McGahn was unsuccessful, and the Trump erupted in anger in front of numerous White House officials, saying he needed his attorney general to protect him, not the presidency or Constitution. Trump then asked, "Where’s my Roy Cohn?", referring to his former personal lawyer and fixer, who had been Senator Joseph R. McCarthy’s top aide during the investigations into communist activity in the 1950s and a mafia lawyer (eg, for John Gotti) (Cohn was ultimately disbarred). Further demonstrating Trump's corrupt intent, Trump intended to send a letter to former FBI Director James Comey describing the Russia investigation as “fabricated and politically motivated,” but he was stopped by aides. Trump also summoned Comey to the Oval Office to demand loyalty, cover up and termination of investigation (Comey took contemporaneous notes about Trump's corrupt orders and shared his stunning Trump experiences with top aides in the FBI. Corroborating Trump's corrupt order to Comey, Chief of Staff Reince Priebus kept notes describing Trump's sharing with Priebus Trump's corrupt orders to Comey). Separately, Sessions sent an aide to Congress in search of diversionary dirt on Hillary Clinton. Two days after Comey’s testimony at a Senate Hearing March 2017, about 2 months before Trump fired him in May, this aide to Sessions approached a Capitol Hill staff member asking whether the staffer had any derogatory information about the F.B.I. director. The attorney general wanted one negative article a day in the news media about Mr. Comey. Later, Trump fabricated on Air Force One on his return from Germany another cover up of his treason, that the June 16, 2016 meeting between top Campaign officials (including Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort and Don Jr.) and Russian spies was about baby adoptions in Russia. Seeing this obstruction of justice, chief campaign spokesman Mark Corallo quit. Corallo privately confided with associates that he believed that Trump's cover up "represented a likely obstruction of justice." Of course, there is also the massive corrupt and orchestrated attacks of DOJ and FBI of Trump and his congressional and Fox News co-conspirators growing daily.
More obstruction. After a year of investigation into Russian interference in the election, Republican collaborators in Congress desperately trying to save Trump from impeachment and possible prison for treason finally issued a criminal referral to the Dept. of Justice. Not for the Russian spies or their partners in Trump Tower, but for Michael Steele (ex-Cambridge Union president, ex-M.I.6 Moscow field agent, ex-head of M.I.6’s Russia desk, ex-adviser to British Special Forces on capture-or-kill ops in Afghanistan), who was informed by contacts in Russia of the crime in progress and informed the FBI with notes about what Russians were telling him, which became known as the 'dossier'. (Steele first reported his initial findings to Fusion June 20, 2016, a month after the Trump campaign informed an Australian diplomat, who later informed the FBI for what he felt was a crime in progress. Early August 2016, Steele informed the FBI, which noted that the 'dossier' notes corroborated information they already had. A week before the election, US national security agencies informed the US public about their conclusions that Russia was interfering with the election for Trump. A half hour later, the infamous tape in which Trump brags about committing sexual assault was broadcast, overtaking the profound news about Russia's intervention for Trump. A half hour later, Russia/Trump released more Clinton campaign emails in defense to change the news to favor Trump.)
Nixon only tried to cover up a dopey petty burglary of paper files in the Watergate Hotel. Trump is trying to cover up treason.
January 4: More than a dozen lawmakers last month met with a Yale University psychiatry professor for two days to discuss President Trump’s fitness for office.
January 4: Because Trump's claim of massive voter fraud was a lie, desperately trying to overturn Clinton's 3,000,000+ more voters than Trump, Trump dissolved his bogus voter fraud commission. States refused to comply with demands from Trump of voter records and lawsuits against Trump's sham were mounting.
Who is more unfit, unstable or sociopathic? Trump or Kim Jong Un?
Who will drop the nuclear bomb first on the other? Who will be responsible for killing hundreds of thousands or millions?
January 3: Trump's last Campaign Director, Paul Manafort, and indicted on 12 counts and confined to home arrest with an electronic ankle monitor to constrain flight from justice, including criminal conspiracy AGAINST the US, sued the US Dept. of Justice, DOJ Assistant Director Rod Rosenstein and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller!
January 3: The editor-in-chief of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists said he believes there is "a danger" to President Trump's tweets on North Korea. "They increase the probability that North Korea will misinterpret normal military exercises as an attack and respond with force. This could result in a back-and-forth series of military actions that might — actually, really — lead to worldwide thermonuclear war and the end of the human experiment. This is a real possibility. This is why President Trump's tweets about North Korea are, in my opinion, an existential threat to humanity" John Mecklin said.
January 3: Trump's treasonous attacks on US national security has devastated morale and induced mass resignations, eg, hundreds of NSA agents have quit. NSA's Director, Michael Rogers, is leaving in the spring.
January 3: Trump invited a book author, Michael Wollf, into the White House, giving him wide access for several months. When the book was announced today, Trump went ballistic. The book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, was too honest, too credible and too damaging. Trump spent taxpayer funds to have lawyers send Wollf and his publisher a cease and desist letter and threatened to sue, totally contradicting Trump's invite and the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Trump wanted the book banned. Instead, book sales were moved up a week and exploded. According to Wollf, Trump's attempt to cover up proved the message of the book. "I absolutely spoke to the president... it certainly was not off the record. My window into Donald Trump is pretty significant. I work like every journalist works. I have recordings. I have notes. I am certainly and absolutely in every way comfortable with what I have reported. 100% of White House around Trump say Trump is unfit for office. The one description that everyone gave, everyone has in common, they all say he is like a child. And what they mean by that is he has a need for immediate gratification. It's all about him. They say he's a moron, an idiot. Actually, there's a competition to sort of get to the bottom line here of who this man is. Let's remember, this man does not read. Does not listen. So he's like a pinball. Just shooting off the sides. He's lost it," Wolff said.
The White House staff are acting like they never met Michael Wollf, even though they greeted him every day in the White House for several months. April 13, 2017, CSPAN broadcast an interview between Wollf and Kellyanne Conway, including her admiration of the press! (https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4666173/kellyanne-conway-talks-michael-wolff-newseum)
Although Trump says everything in the book is a lie, he believes everything it says. So he attacks people quoted in book, most notably Steve Bannon. Trump now calls Bannon "Sloppy Steve."
January 3: According to Trump's brain, Steve Bannon, about the Trump investigation..."You realize where this is going. This is all about money laundering. Mueller chose Weissmann first and he is a money-laundering guy. Their path to fucking Trump goes right through Paul Manafort, Don Jr and Jared Kushner. … It’s as plain as a hair on your face. They’re going to crack Don Junior like an egg on national TV. It goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. The Kushner shit is greasy. They’re going to go right through that. They’re going to roll those two guys up and say play me or trade me." Regarding the meeting June 2016 in Trump Tower among Russian spies, Jared Kushner, Don Jr and Paul Manafort, "The three senior guys in the campaign thought it was a good idea to meet with a foreign government inside Trump Tower in the conference room on the 25th floor -- with no lawyers. Even if you thought that this was not treasonous, or unpatriotic, or bad shit, and I happen to think it's all of that, you should have called the FBI immediately."
Predictably, Trump and Don Jr. attacked Bannon, who Trump relied upon to win office, awarded with office of
Chief Strategist for Trump and elevated to full member of National Security Council . Trump said he was a nobody, contradicting his role as Campaign Director and White House Chief Strategist. "Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my presidency,” Trump said. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind. Steve was rarely in a one-on-one meeting with me and only pretends to have had influence to fool a few people with no access and no clue, whom he helped write phony books." Don Jr. parroted White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, "I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock. I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the president."
Trump threatened to sue Bannon (similarly, Trump threatened to sue the many women reporting sexual assault and harassment by Trump).
Trump called Attorney General Sally Yates a cunt. He hated her for telling him that Michael Flynn was corrupt. (Obama had only one piece of advice for Trump November 8, 2016, don't hire Flynn.) Flynn is now a convicted felon, pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI, conspired against the US, was an illegal foreign agent and is a cooperating witness for Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.
January 3: Trump make countless promises to get elected. All lies. No Trump promise has been kept other than tarnishing the judicial branch of government with inept judges. Of course, voters didn't really care about his promises. They were enamored by his bigotry, media celebrity, cartoon character and most of all his alleged billions of dollars in net worth. His first year has only degraded America.
January 2: Trump claimed that investigations into his treason began with a 'dossier' assembled by a British intelligence agent. False. The Trump's own campaign did, eg bragging to an Australian diplomat May 2016 about its collusion with Russia. This diplomat later informed that FBI about a crime in progress.
Trump's congressional co-conspirators refuse to release sworn testimony by the company executive who initiated the dossier research. This executive, frustrated by Congress, published much of his testimony today in the New York Times. "A generation ago, Republicans sought to protect President Richard Nixon by urging the Senate Watergate committee to look at supposed wrongdoing by Democrats in previous elections. The committee chairman, Sam Ervin, a Democrat, said that would be “as foolish as the man who went bear hunting and stopped to chase rabbits.” In the year since the publication of the so-called Steele dossier — the collection of intelligence reports we commissioned about Donald Trump’s ties to Russia — the president has repeatedly attacked us on Twitter. His allies in Congress have dug through our bank records and sought to tarnish our firm to punish us for highlighting his links to Russia. Conservative news outlets and even our former employer, The Wall Street Journal, have spun a succession of mendacious conspiracy theories about our motives and backers. We are happy to correct the record. In fact, we already have. We walked investigators through our yearlong effort to decipher Mr. Trump’s complex business past, of which the Steele dossier is but one chapter. And we handed over our relevant bank records — while drawing the line at a fishing expedition for the records of companies we work for that have nothing to do with the Trump case. We don’t believe the Steele dossier was the trigger for the F.B.I.’s investigation into Russian meddling. As we told the Senate Judiciary Committee in August, our sources said the dossier was taken so seriously because it corroborated reports the bureau had received from other sources, including one inside the Trump camp. We suggested investigators look into the bank records of Deutsche Bank and others that were funding Mr. Trump’s businesses. Congress appears uninterested in that tip: Reportedly, ours are the only bank records the House Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed. We told Congress that from Manhattan to Sunny Isles Beach, Fla., and from Toronto to Panama, we found widespread evidence that Mr. Trump and his organization had worked with a wide array of dubious Russians in arrangements that often raised questions about money laundering. Likewise, those deals don’t seem to interest Congress. Yes, we hired Mr. Steele, a highly respected Russia expert. What came back shocked us. Mr. Steele’s sources in Russia (who were not paid) reported on an extensive — and now confirmed — effort by the Kremlin to help elect Mr. Trump president. Mr. Steele saw this as a crime in progress and decided he needed to report it to the F.B.I. It is time to stop chasing rabbits. The public still has much to learn about a man with the most troubling business past of any United States president. Congress should release transcripts of our firm’s testimony, so that the American people can learn the truth about our work and most important, what happened to our democracy."
January 2: There have been no commercial airliner deaths in the US since 2009. Trump took sole credit while having done nothing. His plan to 'deregulate' will cause deaths to return.
January 2: During the campaign, Trump bragged on stage that his penis was larger than Marco Rubio's. Today on Twitter, Trump bragged that his nuclear button was larger than Kim Jong Un's. Should Trump use nuclear weapons, he will brag that he killed more than anyone else. Shame on his supporters who endorse bragging about the size of penises and nuclear buttons. In business and now in Congress, Trump would be fired for penis shaming his competitors. What a terrible message to our children.
Trump wants to stroke his button 'badly', whether it's against North Korea, Pakistan, Iran, China or Russia.
January 2: Trump again claimed that HIS Dept. of Justice is a criminal organization deliberately ruining Trump. He ordered DOJ to jail Huma Abadin, Hillary Clinton and James Comey without criminal charges, trial or conviction.
