PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES

Trump’s Enemies List Takes Shape

Consider the old saying, “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”  It basically means that you shouldn’t be a hypocrite. You shouldn’t be accusing someone of something if you do it yourself. But in the case of Donald J. Trump, it takes on another meaning. It has to do with using media and what using media means in the modern world.

If you are being recorded, there could be embarrassments and off-color remarks, or even racist ramblings, that might come back to bite you. In fact, the Donald has been living in a glass house all his life. And Trump’s lack of understanding about his own history and that of all his minions is astounding. I am convinced that if they could hold that history in their little hands for even a microsecond, they wouldn’t know what to do with it.

Richard Nixon had an enemies list. Donald Trump has an enemies list. My only question is how do I get on it? I want to be a registered Trump hater. But seriously, when Sarah Huckabee Sanders read the list on national TV yesterday, my memory took me back. It happened to be the same day that I watched the brilliant new Spike Lee film BlacKkKlansman, in which the final scene contrasts the cross burnings of the KKK in the early 1970s with the Neo-Nazi tiki torches of Charlottesville, Virginia one year ago. For someone who lived through both those aspects of American life, Trump has become Nixon.

So, here is the list:  John O. Brennan, former director of the CIA, James R. Clapper Jr., former director of national intelligence, James B. Comey, former FBI director, Michael V. Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and former CIA director, Andrew G. McCabe, former deputy FBI director, Bruce G. Ohr, former associate deputy attorney general, Lisa Page, former FBI attorney, Peter Strzok, former FBI agent, Susan E. Rice, former national security adviser and Sally Q. Yates, former deputy attorney general.

There is not much that the Great Orange Leader can do to these people, without causing more stones to be thrown at his house but coming out and telling the world your enemies list is really an idiotic thing to do.

They do understand that Nixon had to resign, right? They do know that the reason the press works day and night to discredit the current president and lunatic in power is because he’s dangerous to democracy, right? Actually, no, they don’t get it. Sarah Sanders might as well be Joseph Goebbels.

Trump has managed to mind-fuck some Congressional representatives and some middle Americans into believing that the press is the enemy of the people. We are at a breaking point. When the tape of Trump saying the N-word comes out, he will seem more like one of the flawed characters in BlacKkKlansman rather than a real person. He’s just doing a show for you America, and you may not like the ending. If Trump wins again, he will never leave office. He will simply slip one of his kids into the throne. This show needs to be canceled. The ratings are just okay.

With the State of Pennsylvania revealing the names of hundreds of priests who abused children at the hands of the Catholic Church, can we really trust anyone? Does that lying son-of-a-bitch in the White House deserve our faith? And for those who grant him permission to abuse his power and stain the presidency of our great country, you will be judged harshly when the final report comes in. Yes, you too, Christian evangelicals.

Abuse of power comes in little bits of wafer and wine, but then escalates to real damage. You cannot know the destruction until you see things destroyed. The people on Trump’s enemies list are exceptional and they will NOT be intimidated by a fake president. If Trump had his way, he would “lock them all up” to please his foaming mob, but the rest of us will not stand silent.

There are little cracks in that glass house. They aren’t quite visible to the common man who voted for what they thought was an uncommon president, but some know now that they made a terrible mistake. Others keep talking about the economy, which will end up going up and down for reasons far removed from Washington. Long before this is all over, we will see taxpayers bearing the brunt of Trump’s tariffs and trade wars.

As I peek into that glass house, I see a very disturbed person. Trump hates America. He’s happy kissing Macron in Paris, waving swords in Saudi Arabia and pressing the flesh with Putin, always meeting him more than halfway. Trump tends to put down everything in America he didn’t create. He disrespects a dying Senator and war hero and has no experience for real fighting and sacrifice. He doesn’t care about who we are as Americans.

I have only one piece of advice, screw the resistance. We don’t need to resist him, we need to stop him. We need to launch the biggest rock imaginable at that glass house. Trump doesn’t need to be exposed by Omarosa, he needs to be taken out by the power of the people. He’s wasting time tweeting and repeating, and his news cycle is done. Donald Trump is treading on America. It’s time to take our country back, patriots.

WHEN LAWYERS LIE

The Obstructing President’s Men

President Trump is wading into the deep end of the swamp he said he would drain. This weekend (8-5-2018), one of the President’s many personal attorneys went on TV right after Trump tweeted this, “Fake News reporting, a complete fabrication, that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son, Donald, had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent, totally legal and done all the time in politics – and it went nowhere. I did not know about it!”

Jay Sekulow, Trump’s personal attorney, was confronted on ABC TV on Sunday morning and about things he said previously regarding the infamous meeting in Trump Tower on June 9, 2016. Sekulow had said that Trump knew nothing of the meeting and that it was only about adoptions and the sanctions known as the Magnitsky Act. Now, Sekulow has been handed his own lie by his client’s early morning tweet.

On Fox News’ web site, the glaring headline read, “Trump attorney Jay Sekulow blames ‘bad information’ for Trump Tower statement mixup, says no sign Don Jr. under investigation.” It seems that his client lied to Jay. It also seems that his client has continuously lied to the American public, since the day he took office. Donald J. Trump is a LIAR!

One of the disconcerting things about America is our belief that there are different levels of truth and justice. Some say that attorneys are the public face of their clients and should try to sway public opinion. Others believe that you can try a case in the press and use TV reporters as shills in the quest to free a guilty man. As for the President of the United States, he can be removed from office only for “high crimes and misdemeanors.” The Senate would be the final arbiter of his fate.

It should be perfectly clear to anyone watching this charade that it began with little lies about no one in the campaign even being approached by Russians, to an array of lies that then lead to the admission that, yes, the Russians interfered in the election, yes, we may have had some meetings but nothing came of them, and, then, the audacity to pronounce that no one broke the law. Astoundingly, lamebrain Rudy Giuliani now says that colluding with the Russians isn’t against the law.

Well, it didn’t take Vox.com very long to cite this statute, 52 USC 30121, 36 USC 510 — the law governing foreign contributions to US campaigns. There are two key passages that apply here. This is the first: A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.

Here’s the second important passage of the statute: “No person shall knowingly solicit, accept, or receive from a foreign national any contribution or donation prohibited by [this law].”

According to University of California Irvine election law expert Rick Hasen, the word “solicit,” has a very specific meaning in this context. To quote the relevant statute: “A solicitation is an oral or written communication that, construed as reasonably understood in the context in which it is made, contains a clear message asking, requesting, or recommending that another person make a contribution, donation, transfer of funds, or otherwise provide anything of value.”

We could get one thousand legal experts to weigh in here, but that isn’t the point. What’s relevant is in order to practice law these lawyers must take an oath and pass a test called the bar exam. In that legal tradition, and as officers of the court, they should tell the truth when defending their clients.  Although being bar licensed does trigger ethical obligations, they don’t actually come from the bar exam. It’s from the professional responsibility exam (that every lawyer has to take and pass within one year of taking the bar – either before or after) in each jurisdiction’s rules of professional conduct. There are remedies to address a lawyer who lies in court, but when in front of a camera and using creative messaging to attempt to make their client look innocent, they run the risk of ruining their own reputations.

The Great Orange Leader, who won the electoral college but not the popular vote, has created chaos where none was needed. Trump, the national narcissist, has disgraced his name, family and country by his actions and lies. He hardly understands the cure of Climate Change, the workings of the independent branches of government or people’s real needs. He will be stopped, if not by the Congress, surely by the awaking electorate, who know they have been played.

Sadly, all his lawyers know that the person they are representing cares not about their futures. Trump wishes only to protect himself from imaginary and real enemies. The fake fears of this man are covered up by the real jeopardy he now lives with. He lied. He knows, it just as we all know it.


RADICALS STEAL REPUBLICAN PARTY

Trump Camp Infiltrated by Anarchists 

Something highly disturbing is happening with the Trump reign. Paranoia is striking deep within our president’s loyal base of lunatics. The delusions of the far right and fringe radical elements are creeping into the cult of Donald Trump. They believe that our President was ordained by a higher power and will lead America into neurotic nirvana. It’s all bullshit, but here goes.

It is a fact that Donald Trump was endorsed by Neo-Nazis, KKK, White Nationalists and many other fringe groups. When confronted about these endorsements, Trump either feigned not knowing the people or just ignored the question. When he was challenged about the anarchists and the white nationalists who caused death in Charlottesville, South Carolina, he said, “There were fine people on both sides.” He refuses to oppose or denounce the hate of these supporters. By his inaction and throttling institutions like the “free press” and the FBI, he has promoted conspiracy theories. The Donald has created a socio-political breeding ground for hate and fear.

That brings us to the signs at the Trump rallies in Florida and Pennsylvania this week. You might have noticed the Q and QAnon signs and T-shirts. This is the evidence that the Donald Trump cadre has been infiltrated by another fringe group of radicals who will absorb any remaining credibility of this president. These people are more than despictable, they are deeply disillusioned.

Imagine if the “deep state” and the “dark web” had a baby. You would get Q and QAnon, which was born on closed web forums and secret chat groups. The leader, or leaders, call themselves Q and promulgate what they call “bread crumbs.” These are short phrases and thoughts which are meant as clues that can be construed and developed into elaborate conspiracies. These people must be really bored.

QAnon says they have access to classified information involving the Trump administration and its opponents in the United States and have aligned themselves to a supposedly secret counter-coup against the alleged “deep state”. This is where we must remind ourselves that words matter. Anarchy is the absence of government and absolute freedom of the individual. This political ideal, according to Q, is a state of disorder due to absence or nonrecognition of authority. If we are out to fight this political force our militia won’t need guns. We will need a master hacker to defend ourselves and find out what actions this group will take.

The QAnon conspiracy theorists are supporters of President Donald Trump and promote themselves under the names, “The Storm” and “The Great Awakening.” People who run with these guys include, Roseanne Barr, Curt Schilling and James Wood. This group has already discredited themselves but continues to grow.

It started on October 28, 2017 with a person identifying as “Q Clearance Patriot” on the /pol/ board of 4chan. He created a thread entitled “Calm Before the Storm,” a sentence used by President Donald Trump when he had military families in the White House. There is no connection between what Trump said and the title of Q , but it enhanced the chatter online and the myth was elevated.

An app called “QDrops” about conspiracy theories was published and quickly became the most popular paid app in the “entertainment” section of Apple’s online store in 2018, as well as the tenth most popular paid app overall. Apple pulled the app after an inquiry from NBC News.

Edgar M. Welch, a 28-year-old father of two from Salisbury, N.C., read online that Comet Ping Pong, a pizza restaurant in northwest Washington, had kidnapped young children and made them sex slaves as part of a child-abuse ring led by Hillary Clinton. Welch came to the nation’s capital to help free the children and says he meant no harm.

On December 4, 2016, Welch walked into the pizza place armed with a knife, AR-15 assault weapon and a revolver, saying he wanted to investigate online conspiracy theories. Welch fired his gun multiple times into a locked storage closet. His actions led to his four-year jail term.

Trump’s on-knowing romance with this conspiracy group will produce more fringe actors and domestic terrorists, who will do more shooting. Is Trump free from any guilt? Would a group like QAnon, who push that Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks are pedophiles, stop at anything to create fear, anger and action? They seem to fixate on pedophilia. Strange.

I truly believe that Donald Trump has a psychological flaw, likely the result of an extremely enabled childhood that kept him from logical thought and critical thinking. The 45th President, doesn’t have the ability to discern a lie from the truth and is extremely susceptible to conspiracy theories and hoaxes. He has used these myths to motivate himself and justify attacking others. Our Great Orange Leader’s extreme narcissism and paranoia make him overreact and execute over-the-top actions even when clearer minds ask him to slow down and get the facts. He is, as many have said, mentally unfit to be president.

Just as Trump constantly uses and cites conspiracy theories, this QAnon group of anarchists in the end are going to hurt Donald Trump and the Republican party. This group will do “anything” to push their false claims, conspiracy theories and disruptive political agendas. They say that they want Donald Trump to succeed, but they will continue to act up, even if it means tearing down the government. They are not patriots. This may be why Trump is avoiding talking about them, for now.

If in the future someone gets killed or property gets destroyed, the administration will have to make it clear where they stand. If not, they will have blood on their hands. The fact that we have a free press and a First Amendment, we will always have people writing, reading and spreading the most outlandish lies and falsehoods.

The leaders of the Republican party probably are naïve and uninformed on the whole nature of the “dark web” and the secret little lies that are surfacing among Trump followers. They could have stopped Donald Trump before the primary election, but they didn’t want to lose. They have proved that winning is more important than honesty and truth. Would the G.O.P. really want to see the government be destroyed by these liars and lunatics?

Donald Trump is a dangerous person. He should not be President of the United States. We can only hope that Robert Mueller and his team of patriots will find the truth, tell us the truth and then, the Congress and Judiciary will do the right thing. No man is above the law and the longer that Trump is allowed to rule, the less safe America will be.

SIMPLY EXPRESSING HIS OPINION

Can Trump Ever ‘Put up, or Shut up?’

Donald Trump’s words and actions are enough to embarrass all 44 presidents that came before him, even Nixon. Rudy Giuliani is a disgrace to every lawyer and prosecutor in the land. And Sarah Huckabee Sanders is complicit with an array of lies and misinformation that proves that she is part of a major coverup. There I said it.

Most smart people in America know that our President lies. Experts in the legal field have made it very clear that the diversionary tactics of the Donald are not going to hold up in a court of law. It seems that these goofballs have been lying about everything, including what the law says about collusion and conspiracy: “If two or more persons conspire either to commit any offense against the United States, or to defraud the United States, or any agency thereof in any manner or for any purpose, and one or more of such persons do any act to effect the object of the conspiracy, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than five years, or both.” This is 18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud United States. Most judges would be hard pressed to say that any conspiring by someone in the Trump campaign to “affect” the outcome of a national election would not be a crime.

And while we are at this legal language part, let’s look at 18 U.S. Code § 1503 – Influencing or injuring officer or juror generally, which was what Trump did yesterday (8-1-2018) with this tweet to the Attorney General. The statue states clearly: “Whoever corruptly, or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, endeavors to influence, intimidate, or impede any grand or petit juror, or officer in or of any court of the United States, or officer who may be serving at any examination or other proceeding before any United States magistrate judge or other committing magistrate, in the discharge of his duty, or injures any such grand or petit juror in his person or property on account of any verdict or indictment assented to by him, or on account of his being or having been such juror, or injures any such officer, magistrate judge, or other committing magistrate in his person or property on account of the performance of his official duties, or corruptly or by threats or force, or by any threatening letter or communication, influences, obstructs, or impedes, or endeavors to influence, obstruct, or impede, the due administration of justice, shall be punished as provided in subsection.” The bottom line is you can get ten years in jail for breaking this law.   

What Trump tweeted yesterday might not make his base nervous, but a skilled prosecutor might conclude that our Great Orange Leader is getting closer and closer to breaking the law, “This is a terrible situation and Attorney General Jeff Sessions should stop this Rigged Witch Hunt right now, before it continues to stain our country any further. Bob Mueller is totally conflicted, and his 17 Angry Democrats that are doing his dirty work are a disgrace to USA!”

The mentally limited Giuliani said that it wasn’t an order, because Trump used the word “should” rather than “must.” Rudy didn’t reference the fact that the President did use the words, “right now” which could be interpreted as more of an order. If I said you should do something right now, the “right now” mean NOW!

Sarah Sanders claimed that it was NOT an order, but just the President expressing his opinion. Well, there you have it folks, we must have someone tell us when something Donald Trump says is “just an opinion” — like assholes, everyone has one — or Trump’s official statements. This one certainly did smell like a threat.

When Sanders says, “The president has made his views very clear” we all must just wonder what part of oxymoronic does she not get here? Giuliani, a New Yorker, like Trump, thinks he can slap the Special Counsel with the old poker yarn, “Put up or shut up” but would he ever say that to a judge? The disrespect for law and order by this former Mayor is agonizing. He’s become such a bottom-feeder, so much for legacy.

The latest headline on CNN says that TRUMP IS IN A DARK SPACE. And he should be. He cannot keep asking for this investigation to conclude, without comprehending that it cannot end without him sitting down with Robert Mueller. Could Trump be that stupid not to understand that he is NOT ABOVE THE LAW?

This is what we have, a businessman who thinks he can manipulate the press and opinions, intimidate judges and officers of the court and figure out loopholes around whatever gets in his way. When he says that America is tired of this investigation, he is correct. But be careful about what you ask for Mr. President. The end of this investigation could be the end of your presidential fantasy. All reality TV shows end, eventually.

TRADER OR TRAITOR

Trump’s Iceberg is Melting

As the blistering heat of one thousand blowtorches makes its way across America, leaving fires and floods in its wake, we hear nothing about these demonic occurrences from the commander and chief of America. As mother nature plays out her nasty dark side, there is the smell of revenge and the odor of partisanship wafting out of the orifice of power in the nation’s capital.

Somewhere in a small Midwest town, a farmer sits on top of this year’s soybean crop and wonders why he cannot count on China to pay a healthy profit for his yield. He now questions what seemed to be such a certain bet placed on a businessman from New York. Could it really be true that he was wooed by big talk which eventually took the shape of a retaliatory trade war that would bring him to his knees?

And now we get the news that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, is saying that candidate Trump knew in advance about the June 2016 meeting in Trump Tower in which Russians were expected to offer his campaign dirt on Hillary Clinton. This, comes from CNN, a source our Great Orange Leader condemns as “Fake News.” Are people perhaps feeling more confident to leak damaging information and data to that one network because CNN has become the apparent nemesis of the Donald? Is it coincidence that this is the same network his Justice Department appears to be punishing by stopping it from being part of an AT&T merger, even after a judge has found in favor of the deal?

All this talk of deal making and deal doing may be lost on the millions of people who voted for Donald Trump and are now seeing his rabid nationalism affect their daily bread. The world has left Trump and his ass-kissing experts in a heaping, stinking pile of America First for their well-established and connected globalism. All the clothing that Donald and Ivanka peddled in America was, in fact, made in other countries. In business they are globalists while in politics they are xenophobes. Ask the dozens of people who lost their jobs to yet another failing enterprise this family has shuttered. The Trumps walk away with all the money leaving others to pay for it.

Americans are strong-willed and sometimes blind, but once you take money out of their family budget to pay for “long-term” solutions, they get nervous. They see only next week’s grocery bill. The audacity of asking the citizens to be patient while you play your games with world powers is imprudent at best, and downright dastardly at worst.

The echo chamber on all the late-night comedy shows and news networks, except Fox News, reverberates that we have a liar for a president, ha! ha! ha! But the joke must be on us. We do see that Trump is being forced to fix what he broke, right? The meeting the other day with the President of the E.U. was nothing short of remarkable.

Within seven days, the President of the United States insulted the members of NATO, said that Europe was a “foe” and accused them of raping America. Now, he stands with Europe to work on repairing the damage his frothy little round mouth created. What a waste of 280 characters on Twitter, let alone the world’s largest economy.

When the final chapter on Donald Trump is written it will not be the story of a decisive leader who made America great. It will be a sad tale about a damaged man having not a grain of talent for real leadership, but a true gift of entertaining closed-minded people. The word “Statesman” will never be uttered in the whole book on Trump. A book, it looks like the Special Counsel is about to throw at him.

You see, in the land of the brave and the home of the free no man is above the law. And those conservative congresspeople who are attempting to wage war against the Justice Department are engaging in nothing short of obstruction of justice. By introducing a resolution calling for the impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein, they are attempting to stop the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Or worse, they may be trying to seize evidence in the case to give to Trump. That would make them parties to high crimes and misdemeanors. Do we smell impeachment in the air?

If I was arguing a case against the 45th President, I would create a matrix of guilt. Using the recordings from Michael Cohen, Trump’s tweets, meetings and timelines, along with the public statements that Donald Trump has made, I would show a definitive amalgamation of obstruction of justice, treason, jury tampering, witness intimidation and, oh yeah, violation of the Logan Act and the Emoluments Clause. This just in from NPR, “Federal District Judge Peter Messitte denied the Department of Justice’s request to dismiss a case brought by the attorneys general of Maryland and the District of Columbia. The Emoluments Clause bars any president from personally profiting from his dealings with foreign governments — or even U.S. state governments.”

Dumbfounded Donald could be made turn over his income tax returns as part of this case and the whole world will see the money trail. Will it lead to Putin and Russia or is Trump just a two-bit whore hustler who buys off porn stars while avoiding payment of his fair share of taxes, like most rich guys? He thinks he’s a wunderkind trader, but it appears that he’s nothing more than a narcissistic traitor. Mueller will turn up the heat and we know that something has got to explode. We have a lying, conniving criminal in the White House and it will be interesting to see who steps up in Congress to call for impeachment.

Michael Cohen is no choirboy, but he surely looks like he’s President Trump’s “John Dean,” with the truth in his hoister and recordings in his pockets. We gonna have ourselves another “Watergate.” Trump was right on that one.

A dangerous self-delusion

Trump peers over cliff, can he fly?

Your favorite President did nothing wrong!” sure sounds a lot like “I am not a crook!” When one engages in high risk marketing only two things can happen, and one is bad. In this case, the implication of the opposite is clear, he did do something wrong and he is covering up a whopper.

We are hearing tapes of the President’s voice instructing his lawyer to pay cash to hush-up a Playboy model. We are hearing him say not to believe what you read or hear. He is not well. He is not truthful and he is tearing down any respect left in the presidency of the United States of America.

The assumptive pronouncement, “Your favorite President…” is only meant to enrage the opposition. The enemy of the people is not the press, it is the people who are not checking the President’s reckless actions and statements. One group blindly follows this lunatic, while the other wants his disruption and instability to end. The resistance will pay for a clear path to normalization with a little bit of Constitutional crisis, if need be. In other words, most of the people in America think something is wrong. More than half believe Trump is doing a bad job, while the other 38% think he is being tried in a kangaroo court.

The self-delusional rhetoric from our Great Orange Leader feeds to the narrative that he is the victim, but the facts speak tons. More than 17 people have left this administration, either on their own or after being fired, with two or three of the appointments coming under fire as we speak. Might I remind everyone that these were people picked by Trump, so he must have made mistakes. Don’t hold your breath waiting for an apology.

After his fruitless photo-op with Kim Jong-Un and disastrous summit with Putin, Trump has proven that he’s an amateur on the world stage. He’s making the same mistakes which he has criticized former presidents of making. He draws his own red lines in his tweets, only to use hyperbole to divert the American public’s attention from these embarrassments. He’s a 250 pound tough guy perched on his toilet while blasting out all caps tweets. But when he gets face to face with world leaders needing a cautious approach, he kisses their asses. He spits in the faces of the allies we depend on to keep the world balanced and protected from dangerous regimes. Doing a Shylock shakedown of the NATO nations is beneath the leader of the free world. That challenge should have been kept in the family. Why give Russia hope? Or is that Trump’s primary role?

Trump’s latest eruption is another attempt to soil the Mueller Russian interference investigation. His acknowledgement of Russian interference was just another photo-op and left-handed compliment, but now he’s back to calling the whole thing a hoax. If you say that you agree with the intelligence community’s findings, but then throw massive shade on the investigation a day later, you are obviously not telling the truth. Trump equates the Mueller – Russian thing as all against him and a trick to delegitimatize his election. He’s not wrong. If Mueller finds anyone from the campaign involved in the Russian operation, Trump might be impeached just for being the benefactor of bad players within this campaign. Will any of the 17 people who left his administration be found involved in the meddling?

Trump today is attempting to move the story away from the delusional view of North Korea with a new attack on Iran. Last night’s tweet, (7-22-2018), shows the new tactic, “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!”

Congress should pass a law that taxes the use of ALL CAPS on Twitter to pay for the Russian investigation. Trump is a shameful example of who we should not let near the nuclear codes. He’s not a “stable genius.” His actions clearly show that he’s just an over-blown, fat baby president without any knowledge of history or government. As soon as this president gets to the edge of the war cliff, will his supporters believe they all can fly with him or will he fall out of power? History and gravity will destroy this administration and take Trump to the bottom. In the end, poor little Donnie will be all alone with his money, big ties and bad makeup.

WHAT’S IN IT FOR PUTIN

Trump Fumes, Fabricates and Fumbles

Donald Trump is a liar. No matter how many times I write that sentence, it doesn’t seem to matter. One of the best descriptions of President Trump came from his supporter and ally, Steve Bannon. He called him “Archie Bunker,” and that is the best moniker you could give our Great Orange Leader.

I can see the TV sitcom character with his cigar, played by Carroll O’Connor, sitting in that old living room chair pontificating about life, liberty and who should be able to pursue happiness. He was direct, blunt and bigoted. Although Archie occasionally showed some heart, he never grew outside of his own determined world. Donald Trump is a modern-day Bunker.

Earlier this week we witnessed an unprepared president attempt to adlib his way around a press conference with the President of Russia, Vladimir Putin. The reaction to what happened during that event was substantial and immediate. Trump appeared weak and unhinged. But what got most people crazy was the fact that he, once again, gave Putin a pass on the efforts of his government to interfere with our 2016 election. The attack on our democracy doesn’t seem to be at all important to Trump.

There are some who say that Putin is frustrated that Russia has been disrespected since the fall of the Soviet Union. Like Adolf Hitler after the Treaty of Versailles was signed, Putin is using nationalism and revenge to work up his base. Everything Putin does is an attempt to bring Russia back to her glory days. In a sense, Putin is the Russian version of Archie Bunker, only he’s a smart, polished, poised actor and politician. He often looks down and clears his throat, but he’s always reloading while the other person is talking. He listens to the questions and creates a more believable diversion than our so-called leader. Trump is glaringly transparent at times and that is his greatest weakness. We can see straight through to ignorance and awkwardness.

To be clear, the “clarification” that Donald Trump attempted to pull off yesterday (7-17-18) was more the liar’s lament than a credible, digestible correction. The line that Trump asked for a mulligan was, “I don’t see any reason why it would be.” Trump on Tuesday said that he meant to say: “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be [Russia].” But why argue about one word, read the whole transcript here.

In the context of the paragraph, it appeared to be the conclusion of a bigger point that President Trump was making, “With that being said, all I can do is ask the question. My people came to me, Dan Coats, came to me and some others they said they think it’s Russia. I have President Putin. He just said it’s not Russia. I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be.”  Why would the President of the United States claim that all he can do with a Russian President is to ask him? If that is all Trump thinks he can do, then his own words deny rather than confront the truth.

There is one firm conclusion that anyone can make. Donald Trump is a lousy communicator. He doesn’t construct his thoughts (you know, the words) in a way that states his point clearly. Dan Coats and his team never said they “thought” it could be Russia, they said it was Russia. Why add vagueness to the Intelligence Community’s findings? “Findings” are conclusions, that is why we call them findings.

Like the young boy who tells his teacher that his dog ate his homework, the attempt to change one word in that press conference, his flimsy meā culpā, was nothing more than a shell game of distraction. It was clear to everyone watching that Trump believed Putin over his intelligence team. Some called it treason, while others just shook their head and walked away from their oath to protect the Constitution. Lots of shame to go around here.

Putin has found his puppet in Trump. The saddest part of this whole movie is that Trump doesn’t realize that he is being used by the former KGB agent. The most disgraceful aspect of the relationship between Trump and Putin is that it spits in the face of Trump’s America First promise. He’s lying to his followers and most of them don’t even comprehend they elected a traitor.

In the end, we heard what the Donald said in public, but we don’t know what he promised Putin in private. As most of what happens in this administration, we will learn later what Trump gave away.

Like the last-minute Republican platform being changed by the now incarcerated Paul Manafort to halt giving Ukraine weapon shipments, we will see how Russia has played this administration.

Like the delay of the implementation of sanctions against Putin that Congress voted almost unanimously to pass last year to punish Russia for its meddling in the 2016 US election and aggression in east Ukraine, Trump seems to be protecting the Kremlin. Were the sanctions ever implemented?

And who voted against the sanctions? Those lawmakers were, in the House, Justin Amash (R-Mich.), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), John Duncan Jr. (R-Tenn.), and in the Senate, Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) These are the people I want to ask which team they are on.

Isn’t it about time that all Americans stand up as Americans and decide to put America First by taking Trump out of the office. He’s in Putin’s pocket and no one seems to know why. Maybe Robert Mueller knows?

DONALD TRUMP IS A TRAITOR

Putin Over-Powers Another President

When Donald Trump ran for president, he painted everyone who had come before him as weak and ineffective. And some of the people in this country voted for him, believing his rhetoric that he was a tough guy and a great deal maker. We’re not getting a do-over on this one.

If the last 18 months have shown me anything, it is that Trump is a horrible negotiator and unbelievably sheepish when he is face to face with anyone of power. He was critical of the sitting Prime Minister of Great Britain in a newspaper interview, but denied he said anything negative when standing next to Theresa May. Once again, he called it fake news, which is his go-to line once caught in a lie. The tape recording of the interview that Trump referenced in his denial showed that the reporting was exactly what he said. After all, the newspaper was The Sun, owned by the same person who owns Fox News. Maybe there is something mentally wrong with the 45th President.

So, Trump and Putin had a press conference after their short four-hour discussion today (7-16-2018), and Trump disappointed and embarrassed America stepping into so much crap. It would have been better if he left his shoes and the asshole standing in them in Finland.

Fox News said that the Donald seemed weak and unprepared when he was standing with Putin in Helsinki, Finland. Even Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House of the United States spoke out, “There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.”

So what do we do now, America? We have a puppet president who is intimidated by strong men to such a degree that he makes unAmerican statements and actions which could harm our nation. Donald J. Trump has sided with Putin and Russia and believes that his own intelligence community cannot be trusted. Our president seems to be more worried about Russia selling gas and oil to Germany than the fact that Russia attempted to disrupt our democracy by meddling in our election.

Not surprisingly, Senator John McCain also rebuked the President after he witnessed Trump’s presentation “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.

It is tempting to describe the press conference as a pathetic rout – as an illustration of the perils of under-preparation and inexperience. But these were not the errant tweets of a novice politician. These were the deliberate choices of a president who seems determined to realize his delusions of a warm relationship with Putin’s regime without any regard for the true nature of his rule, his violent disregard for the sovereignty of his neighbors, his complicity in the slaughter of the Syrian people, his violation of international treaties, and his assault on democratic institutions throughout 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. That the president was attended in Helsinki by a team of competent and patriotic advisors makes his blunders and capitulations all the more painful and inexplicable.

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. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed. Americans are waiting and hoping for President Trump to embrace that sacred responsibility. One can only hope they are not waiting totally in vain.” GOD BLESS JOHN MCCAIN.

During the Helsinki press conference, Putin gave Trump a ceremonial soccer ball from the recently concluded World Cup in Moscow. South Carolina Republican Lyndsey Graham showed his thinking and sense of humor by saying, “Meddling & collusion are NOT the same thing. Russia did meddle in 2016 election & are trying it again. I’ve seen no evidence of collusion, plenty evidence of Russian meddling. Russia didn’t beat Clinton. Trump beat Clinton. Bad day for the US. Can be fixed. Must be fixed. Finally, if it were me, I’d check the soccer ball for listening devices and never allow it in the White House.”

The only way to right this ship is for Congress to remove Trump’s power over foreign policy. If the Republicans cannot rein him in, then America should vote more Democrats into office to balance this insanity. And if things get worse, we should not be so shy about advancing a discussion about impeachment. It is clear that Donald J. Trump is unfit to be President of the United States.

SPEED DATING IN SINGAPORE

Trump’s Simplistic View of Diplomacy

What the world just witnessed in Singapore was the devaluation of reality. The bull in the china shop destroyed so much stemware and pottery that the United States will have to take out another loan to pay for it all. If I was a conspiracy theorist, I might suggest that the big summit between Kim Jong-Un and Donald Trump didn’t really happen. But we saw it on TV, so it must have taken place. However, the final product of the event has less backbone than a jellyfish.

The Democrats asked, “Where’s the beef,” While the Trump loyalists were toasting, “Well, Trump did it!” Yes, he took a meeting with the Chairman of a totalitarian nation, who arrests, tortures, kills and enslaves his people, but that never stood in the way of the Donald’s ego. He thinks he will get the Noble Peace Prize for this made-for-TV event, but he failed to get anything of substance from this high-level meeting. It’s pure Trump; lots of talk, lots of words, little substance.

Trump walked away with a two-page letter saying we agree to reaffirm the talks to denuclearize the Korean peninsula. We still don’t know if Kim’s definition of denuclearization matches ours. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the U.S. goal of the meeting with the North Korean despot was to get “Permanent, verifiable, irreversible dismantling” of their nuclear war machine. Mike has now become frustrated with the fair questions concerning that very pronouncement.

When Pompeo, probably suffering from the new orange form of jetlag, was asked about the fact that his words were not in the two-page agreement both leaders signed, he cited the word “complete” and equated it to “permanent, verifiable, irreversible dismantling” of North Korea’s nuclear arsenal. When pressed further, Pompeo barked, “I find that question insulting and ridiculous and, frankly, ludicrous. I just have to be honest with you. It’s a game and one ought not play games with serious matters like this.” Mike, Mike, we appreciate your being “honest” with us but, please, when you negotiate a complex disarmament agreement with another country, you should use precise legal verbiage. Right?

Since Trump returned from his speed-dating session with a dictator in Singapore, he has declared that North Korea is no longer a nuclear threat. This, we guess, is based not on an agreement but on his perception of a five-hour meeting with Kim Jong-Un. Donald Trump destroyed relationships with members of the G-7 with insults and his lack of understanding about how trade works, and then dashed off to the big summit. He doesn’t have a solid grasp of diplomacy, so he wasted his time and millions of dollars on a giant photo-op.

Time will tell whether a pledge to start a dialog will indeed lead to peace, but there is good reason to cast skepticism over what happened in Singapore. By telling Kim that we would suspend all military activities with South Korea, we gave the autocrat a gigantic win, without getting diddley-squat in return. Trump also hinted that we might pull out all our troops from South Korea. Really? Why would we do that?

When confronted about some of the North Korean human rights violations, Trump replied with praise for Kim Jong-Un as a “tough guy,” a “smart guy” and a “great negotiator.” When Bret Baier of Fox News interviewed Trump following the denuclearization summit, our president declined to condemn North Korea’s record.

International bodies have accused Kim of crimes against humanity, including assassinations of political rivals, public executions and the imprisonment of tens of thousands political adversaries. Trump seems numb to real carnage.

The Donald disassociated Kim from those atrocities with, “Hey, when you take over a country, tough country, with tough people, and you take it over from your father, I don’t care who you are, what you are, how much of an advantage you have – if you can do that at 27 years old, that’s one in 10,000 could do that.” I guess their first date went well, judging from Trump’s additional comment, “So he’s a very smart guy, he’s a great negotiator and I think we understand each other.”

Trump believes that everyone is like him and that flattering the other person is all that’s needed. When Trump says something that doesn’t get a response, he assumes he has won. Judging by what we know so far, Trump received a few words on paper, while America appears to have given more than we got. We all hope this is real but, judging by the reaction of Mike Pompeo to a few honest questions about the agreement, maybe the Secretary of State realizes that this is not as it appears.

Trump knows how to pull out of deals, but there is no evidence that he is competent with making pacts, agreements or peace treaties. Without good people like Pompeo, Trump would just be another fat, pompous politician with promises to keep. It’s not bad that he delivers on all his promises, but those promises are terribly destructive. He has made America less great. I am embarrassed by him.

LEAKING AND THE LAW

Trump’s Department of Justice

The tight-rope walk between protecting national security and the need for a free press has always been a challenge. It’s essential that government and justice operate without the fear of damaging leaks to the media, similar to your need of security on your social media platforms.

Our President, Donald Trump, spends an inordinate amount of time writing and sending posts to Twitter. Some people, even many of his followers, consider this an exorbitant use of a social media platform. Trump’s tweets often get him into trouble, but our president’s psychological vomiting gives the nation a revealing look into his soul.

There is a widely held belief in our government that if the President of the United States reveals something then it is no longer classified. Under this logic, once the leader of the free world speaks whatever he says is not a leak. Trump fails to realize, however, that some of the leaks he complains about are things that he shared with his buddies on the phone. Trump uses these people as sounding boards, but they also talk to others.

Good reporting is much like a jig-saw puzzle. A journalistic sleuth will interview and prod people in power and tap official sources. By carefully connecting the dots of loosely related pieces of a story, a talented journalist can then write a complete story, hopefully with the added value of a big scoop. Once the report is written, the correspondent usually calls people in authoritative positions to have them verify the premise or the facts. Many times, a “no comment” is interpreted as approval. While this is not always correct, it is an accepted technique. The old, “Well, they didn’t deny it,” can be a bit like walking on thin ice.

Because of the competitive nature of the press, and the aggressive, often unprofessional, work of web bloggers and media sites, reporters are not afraid of rummaging through someone’s trash to get a story. Some writers have a political purpose and will bend the story to fit their perspective, right or left. Washington, D.C. seems like a big city, but it’s really a bunch of little towns filled with gossip, rumors, and bottom-feeders. The government might be the Capitol’s biggest employer, but the notion of a swamp isn’t too far from the truth.

In their quest for truth, reporters will do just about anything to concoct a good story. Because the D.C. center of power is so small, personal relationships and late-night bed partners often play into the mix. Human nature doesn’t change, but the law about protecting the secrets of government are black and white.

In 2003, a journalist for The Washington Post, James Novak, received inside information from Richard Armitage, who worked at the Department of State. Novak then published a story that revealed the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame. Not only did this end Ms. Plame’s CIA career, it also generated a grand jury investigation.

The case was United States v. Libby and, yes, that is the same Scooter Libby who President Trump recently pardoned. Libby’s was VP Dick Cheney’s Chief of Staff, and he was found guilty of making false statements to investigators about leaking information to reporters.  Many people believe that Libby took the fall for Cheney, who was probably also in the loop of the leak.

Now, here are some strange coincidences. The special prosecutor in the Scooter Libby case was Patrick Fitzgerald. He prosecuted and got a conviction of Rod Blagojevich, who was the Governor of Illinois at the time, for attempting to sell Barack Obama’s Senate seat for money. Trump said he is considering pardoning Blagojevich. And to make the stew a little thicker, James Comey, then acting Attorney General, was the person who appointed Fitzgerald to investigate the leaking of Plame’s identity.

But it gets even stranger. Scooter Libby tried his hand at writing and published a fictional novel about a smallpox epidemic in Japan in 1903 called, The Apprentice. One can’t make this stuff up and it shows the interlocking circles of our government and Trump’s intentions.

The front-page story in the New York Times today (6-8-2018) reports that, “A former Senate Intelligence Committee aide was arrested on Thursday in an investigation of classified information leaks where prosecutors also secretly seized years’ worth of a New York Times reporter’s phone and email records.” The story alleges that the former aide, 57-year-old James A. Wolfe, was charged with lying repeatedly to FBI investigators about his contacts with three reporters. A shocking fact is this was the first known instance of the Trump Justice Department seizing a reporter’s records.

But wait, there’s more. Wolfe and reporter Ali Watkins were allegedly dating. The New York Times went on to add, “It appeared that the FBI was investigating how Ms. Watkins learned that Russian spies in 2013 had tried to recruit Carter Page, a former Trump foreign policy adviser.” I guess the “failing” New York Times really did have a major scoop.

Wolfe has worked in a security role on the Hill for over 30 years. This puts the Great Orange Leader in a precarious position. While Trump disparages his own Justice Department, those same professionals are using the same legal methods to obtain information which could lead to a conviction, just as they did in New York with Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer. This underscores the notion of no one being above the law, and that Donald Trump may be in the thick of the same kind of thorough investigation in the Russian probe. As someone pointed out, “investigation” is part of their name: Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Trump has his unlimited power to pardon, as he did for Scooter Libby. Perhaps this was a message sent to anyone who might be thinking of testifying against him or flipping on him. Regardless, the media will continue their relentless fact finding. That is what they do.

There are people who consider themselves whistle-blowers and the Washington press corps craves their precious pieces of information. All the king’s horses and men will never stop the leaks, whether they are legal or not. Human nature dictates that, sooner or later, someone will leak. And we thank them for giving us the gift that Trump cannot, TRANSPARENCY.
