POLITICIZING & PANDERING

Trump’s Blame Game of Negativity

Donald J Trump continues to make himself the “issue” rather than being a leader. When Trump is being Trump, he energizes the opposition. His lack of political intelligence is stunning in so many ways. He is given opportunity after opportunity to demonstrate leadership qualities to unite the country, but he is unable to escape from his braggadocio and blunders. He chooses to politicize and pander rather than step up and become a president. He lives in a world of cheap put-downs, conspiracy theories and fraudulent excuses.

It was said that the President didn’t play golf this weekend out of respect for the students who were killed at Parkland’s Stoneman Douglas High School. But in his idle time, he disrespected America with more than 13 tweets that blamed most of all that is happening on everyone but the Russians. In his rants, there were no plans for prevention of Russian interference in the future and no additional punishments for what the Russians did to manipulate the election results. The man is impotent on Russia.

The new marching orders from the Great Orange Leader say there was “no collusion” with the Trump campaign and what the Russians did had no effect on the election. That interpretation of the 37-page indictment seems conclusive and self-serving.

We all know that this isn’t the end of the investigation, right? The Donald blamed Obama for his lack of action on the matter, but the indictment makes it clear that the illegal acts were focused on the 2016 election. In fact, it mentions the last election almost 20 times. And the sanctions Congress passed almost unanimously haven’t been launched against the evil Putin. Why is the White House not acting?

Trump, accusing the FBI of being too busy on the Russian investigation to act on signs that the shooter in Florida was ready to execute students, displayed one of his most shallow political actions. Through the Twitter Trump, we see the unfiltered, mean and manipulative man who thinks that everyone is out to get him. The tweets show his insecurity and fear of the Mueller investigation. He knows something.

Some people aren’t seeing the clues in the indictment. Back in June 2017, the Texas edition of The Patch ran a story that talked about a San Antonio-based digital operation overseen by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner and how it was under increased scrutiny.

According to Federal Election Commission filings in a story here, the web design and digital marketing company that Brad Parscale owns received more than $91 million from the Trump campaign and was in cahoots with one of Trump’s Super PACs. Brad Parscale joined the Trump Campaign and ran something they referred to as Project Alamo, which was covered in a 60 Minutes piece after Trump won the election. You can watch what they did here.

Paragraph 31 of the Federal indictment of 13 Russian nationals claims that the defendants and their co-conspirators, posing as U.S. persons, communicated with real U.S. persons affiliated with a Texas-based grassroots organization. Could this organization be Parscale’s company? Could this be the breadcrumb that leads to the future indictment of Jared Kushner?

Trump knows what Kushner and Parscale did and is doing everything he can to keep up the illusion that his campaign and administration owes nothing to the Russians. They did nothing nefarious to get him elected. It’s probably true that because of Trump’s complicated banking arrangements and because he rarely gets into detail, he may have no idea how much of his personal finances are intertwined with Russian oligarchs’ monies. He may have gotten dirty money along the way, but we will never know because he hasn’t released his tax returns.

Trump’s tweets of today (2-19-2018), about Oprah Winfrey’s appearance on 60 Minutes, seem motivated by some people on that program being negative about the President. Donald Trump suffers from a grand illusion that everyone must love him. He attacks anyone who speaks their mind about his negative actions, deeds and words. I am sure he felt Oprah didn’t do a good job standing up for him. Trump’s frame of mind is totally transparent. He’s afraid he’s going to be found out.

America must now come together about what Russia has done and figure out a way to move Trump off his cock-blocking of the charge against Russia. It’s time to do something about the cyber-attack of a foreign power. If the mainstream media wants to get beyond the Donald’s blatant manipulation of the narrative, they must deepen the investigation of what happened. What actions are being taken? It’s time to connect the dots.

A Russian company organized a propaganda effort to change the outcome of our election and, while doing so, used stolen American identities to conduct fraud. There should be a screaming alarm going off in the White House. The failure to acknowledge this indictment indicates that no siren has been triggered.

The net result of Trump’s pandering to his base on this issue is making red state Republicans feel that Russian interference was not a big deal. Can this really be happening? From wife-beaters in the White House, to another horrible shooting, to the attempts to blame the FBI for all his problems, Donald J. Trump is NOT a real President.

On this President’s Day, I confess with grave concern that we have the most dangerous president ever. If he isn’t stopped, Trump will absolutely make America less great. He is damaging our country and democracy. We must remain strong, however, because getting rid of him will cause more violence in America. After watching the Oprah Winfrey focus group on 60 Minutes, it’s clear that Trump supporters have been brainwashed like the good comrades he wants them to be.

SPECIAL COUNSEL LANDS FISH

Trump’s Denials Seem So Nixon-like

There have been moments in time when corruption bubbles up from the swamp and people’s reputations become soiled forever. The Russian Probe has produced two arrests, but what else looms in the future?

In the past, we had the Teapot Dome Scandal, a bribery incident from 1921 to 1922, during President Warren G. Harding’s administration. Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall did a deal for Navy petroleum reserves at Teapot Dome in Wyoming and two locations in California for private oil companies at low rates without competitive bidding.

This would be like someone giving a $300 million no-bid contract to a new company with only two employees located in the state of the Secretary of the Interior to repair the electrical grid in Puerto Rico. While the headlines screamed corruption, Secretary Zinke attacked the “dishonest media” for asking questions about a shady Whitefish Energy contract. Really? The company is based in the same small town that Ryan Zinke calls home and we are to believe there wasn’t anything fishy?

We had Watergate, which Richard Nixon claimed was a “witch-hunt” – does that sound familiar? That scandal was described by the White House as a third-rate burglary, but morphed into the reality that the President of the United States was involved in a cover-up. Nixon was forced to resign by his own party days before he was to be impeached.

Then we had the Iran-Contra Affair that occurred during the Ronald Reagan administration. This was a complicated scheme to supply weapons to Iran, which then was an enemy of the US, in hopes of securing the release of American hostages held in Lebanon by Hezbollah terrorists loyal to the Ayatollah Khomeini, Iran’s leader. Reagan’s men then took millions of dollars from the weapons sale and routed them, along with guns, to the right-wing “Contra” guerrillas in Nicaragua. In 1986, Lebanese magazine Ash-Shiraa published a series of articles that exposed the weapons-for-hostages deal. I guess they were the “dishonesty media.”

There were almost a dozen people charged for their involvement in Iran-Contra, from the Secretary of Defense, the National Security Adviser, Secretary of State people to CIA personnel. All were convicted for their involvement or perjury. They were all pardoned by George H.W. Bush. And this is the way our government works.

Today, the former manager of Donald Trump’s campaign, Paul Manafort, and his associate, Rick Gates, have been charged with a 12-count indictment that says they conspired to defraud the United States with money laundering activities, illegal tax schemes and foreign lobbying deeds. In short, they had more than $75 million flow through offshore accounts and managed to, according the indictment, launder $21 million so far with their schemes.

And this just in, according to the Washington Post: “Former Trump foreign policy advisor George Papadopoulos pleaded guilty earlier this month to making a false statement to FBI investigators who asked about his contacts with a foreigner connected to Russian officials, and the agreement was unsealed Monday (10-30-2017).” So, there were contacts with Russians during the campaign. FACT.

The good news for Trump is neither his campaign nor the administration was mentioned in this indictment. Most experts believe that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, III has only made his first move and people around Trump should take any request for information very seriously. And, oh yeah, don’t lie.

For those people who have a great desire for impeachment, you should focus on how the White House reacts to these charges. Donald Trump, who says he knows more than lawyers, continually distances himself from Manafort and over-amplifies the distractions. His morning tweet says it all, “Sorry, but this is years ago, before Paul Manafort was part of the Trump campaign. But why aren’t Crooked Hillary & the Dems the focus????? …Also, there is NO COLLUSION!”

Ty Cobb and his murder of attorneys have taken the bull by the horn and are attempting to spin this Mueller thing away from Donald Trump. But in the end, no one controls Trump and that will be his downfall. If he is the only person to really know, then knowing anything about these crimes is a crime itself.

Today is not the end, it is only beginning. At worst, Trump is just like all those other scandal makers in the White House. Deny involvement, blame someone else, and if someone took some pain for you, pardon them. For a “law and order” President, the Donald seems to have no respect for law.

For now, we know, at least, the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump is an extremely poor judge of character.
