Misadventures of a minority-elect President 132

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

We begin today’s misadventures of our illegitimate, minority-elect president with his war on the press that is actually a war on the truth – his biggest enemy – on his quest to become America’s first dictator, Syrian civilian deaths rocketing as our War Criminal-in-Chief commits more war crimes there under the dubious guise of fighting terrorism while his plans to invade Iran unfold, our Loser-in-Chief tweets more lies about his fraudulent healthcare tax giveaway bill, the miscreants supporting our national embarrassment’s fraudulent health care tax giveaway are lying their asses off about it – and failing miserably, Trump’s Syrian gas attack false flag exposed in all its ignorant glory, Trump’s fraudulent Voter Integrity Commission laying the ground work to screw Americans out of future elections and much more.

How unpopular is Donald Trump? Latest presidential approval ratings article from AL. –

At 35 percent, very unpopular:

“Amid squabbles with CNN and Congressional Democrats, President Donald Trump faces another foe – dismally low approval ratings.

The latest daily tracker from Gallup shows 39 percent of those responding to the poll approve of the job the president is doing as compared to 56 percent who do not. The 39 percent approval rating is an improvement for Trump, whose numbers dipped to 36 percent earlier this week following reports that millions could lose health insurance under the Senate’s Obamacare replacement plan.

In comparison, President Barack Obama’s approval ratings during the summer of his first term were around 60 percent.

Trump’s lowest approval rating of his presidency – 35 percent – came on March 28…”

ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN 2.0 article from Vanity Fair. –

After Trump secures his place in history as America’s worst-ever President, historians will try to figure why so many power people continue supporting his dubious ass:

“What about those of us who knew better, we who knew the words were lies and worse than lies? Why did we sit silent? Why did we take part? Because we loved our country. What difference does it make if a few political extremists lose their rights? What difference does it make if a few racial minorities lose their rights? It is only a passing phase.”

These words, spoken by Ernst Janning in Judgment at Nuremberg, Abby Mann’s drama about the war-crimes tribunals that took place in Germany in the late 1940s, reflect horrors far greater than those we face today. Nevertheless, coming from Janning, a distinguished jurist and patriot and a man who knew better but who turned a blind eye to what was going on around him, they have a certain relevance. And they must surely echo the private thoughts of Republican mandarins who stand by while their leader ravages the institutions and tenets that keep American democracy in place.

When the historians finally weigh in on the Trump presidency (and it’s never too early to start), they will have a troubling question to answer. It’s not why many good Americans, angered and disgusted by the dysfunction of Washington, were misled by Trump’s mendacious rhetoric. The real question is why powerful people who (like Janning) knew better—and who now know exactly what kind of man Trump is—continue to support him and make his presidency possible. These are the same men who have in the past publicly called Trump a racist, a xenophobe, a jackass, a man of sickening sexual crudeness, and unfit to serve as commander in chief. Trump in his characteristic way has called them things you wouldn’t say about your worst enemy.

In “The Enablers,” Sarah Ellison takes on six of these men—Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mike Pence, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Reince Priebus—all of whom have the political acumen, knowledge of government, and sufficient grip on reality to know firsthand that our president is not just in over his head but perhaps out of his mind. It would be one thing if they were surrounding him in order to stop him. But in fact they surround him in order to enable him for their own various ends. The myriad acts of malignant legislation committed while the nation is distracted by the president’s woes are evidence of their own agendas…”

Trump’s ‘fake news’ crusade is the stuff of dictators article from The Chicago Tribune. –

More on our dimwitted dip shit’s quest to become America’s dictator:

“The president of the United States has now declared that CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC along with the “failing” New York Times and the Washington Post are not news organizations staffed by professional journalists but mere fabricators of baseless information.

“They are all Fake News!” Donald Trump wrote in yet another wildly unpresidential Twitter salvo.

Let’s pause to appreciate what this means: The president of the United States is issuing a blanket declaration that six of the most prominent and respected news outlets in the country are not to be trusted.

What prompted these latest hysterics from Trump were the resignations of three CNN journalists in the wake of the retraction of a story published on the network’s website.

The story, citing one anonymous source, claimed the Senate intelligence committee was looking into a meeting between the head of a Russian investment fund and Trump ally Anthony Scaramucci shortly before Trump took office…”

Trump and Pence ‘laying the groundwork for voter suppression’ with new election integrity commission: report article from The Raw Story. –

Trump’s fraudulent voter suppression commission is preparing to suppress millions of voters to win future elections:

“New documents reveal that Vice President Mike Pence is spearheading an “election integrity commission” — and according to one civil rights advocate, the vice president’s commission is making the case for voter suppression.

The letter sent Wednesday by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who is leading the “anti-voter fraud” commission, was sent to every state and claims the commission is tasked with “studying the registration and voting processes used in federal elections” and submitting them to President Donald Trump.

The letter was published on Twitter by Vanita Gupta, a former head of the Department of Justice’s civil rights division, who is now President and CEO of The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. In her tweet, Gupta claims “Pence and Kobach are laying the groundwork for voter suppression, plain and simple.”

Among the questions asked of the states in the letter, Kobach requested information about “instances of voter fraud or registration fraud” in each state, as well as “election-related crimes.”…”

Dispatch From the Middle East: U.S. Buildup All About Iran article from The American Conservative. –

Our illegitimate wannabe dictator’s list of war crimes in Syria is growing:

“DAMASCUS – As the drive to push ISIS out of its remaining territories in Syria and Iraq rapidly advances, the U.S. and its allied forces have entrenched themselves in the southeastern Syrian border town of al-Tanaf, cutting off a major highway linking Damascus to Baghdad.

Defeating ISIS is Washington’s only stated military objective inside Syria. So what are those American troops doing there, blocking a vital artery connecting two Arab allied states in their own fight against terrorism?

“Our presence in al-Tanaf is temporary,” says Col. Ryan Dillon, spokesman for the Combined Joint Task Force of Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR), the U.S.-led campaign against ISIS, via phone from Baghdad. “Our primary reason there is to train partner forces from that area for potential fights against ISIS elsewhere…and to maintain security in that border region.”

Dillon adds for emphasis: “Our fight is not with the (Syrian) regime.”

But since May 18, when U.S. airstrikes targeted Syrian forces and their vehicles approaching al-Tanaf, American forces have shot down two Syrian drones and fired on allied Syrian troops several times, each time citing “self-defense.” In that same period, however, it doesn’t appear that the al-Tanaf-based U.S.-backed militants have even once engaged in combat with ISIS…”
