The many ways our illegitimate, minority-elect president is dismantling the U.S. after six months in office begins today’s misadventures, his fraudulent ‘voter integrity’ commission dubiously tries to justify our popular vote losing liar’s claims that he won the popular vote, Trump and his team’s actions meet the definition of betrayal of country – which is treason, Trump’s ‘accomplishments’ during his first illicit 6 months after being ‘elected,’ Trump’s endless corruption and ignorance is coming back to bite him, our Liar-in-Chief’s Ministry of Propaganda is shifting the lies into overdrive and much more.

Understanding Trumpism and how it came about:

“Six months into Donald Trump’s presidency, the bond between him and his base remains strong, largely unaffected for now by the mounting scandals, talk of impeachment, and Trump’s stalled agenda. There have been five special elections to fill vacant House seats—in Georgia, Montana, Kansas, California, and South Carolina—and the Republicans have won four of them. In Georgia, the most closely watched race, the Democrats poured in $30 million for their candidate. But the Republicans nearly matched that figure, and their narrow victory in June was perceived as a win for Trump—and Trumpism, however ill-defined it may be.

Joshua Green’s new book, Devil’s Bargain, argues that Trumpism is best understood through his partnership with Stephen K. Bannon, now the president’s chief political strategist. Green, formerly a correspondent at The Atlantic and now at Bloomberg Businessweek, has been writing about conservatives since the George W. Bush years. It is a testament to his adroit intertwining of Bannon’s story with Trump’s that we’re not certain which of the two figures has sold the bigger part of himself to the other. In the broader sense, they are coauthors of our moment’s tabloid conservatism.

Trump has had many biographers, but it was Green who did the first in-depth reporting on Bannon, in a long Bloomberg profile in October 2015, ten months before Bannon formally joined the Trump campaign and rescued it from what looked like certain defeat. Previously, Bannon had been an informal adviser while making Breitbart News, the website he had run since 2012, Trump’s main propaganda auxiliary, surpassing Fox News, which had been divided over Trump and roiled by a sexual harassment scandal involving the network’s late founder and CEO, Roger Ailes. Green describes a conversation in which Ailes, still clinging to his job, tells Bannon he can survive. He just has to plead his case directly to Rupert Murdoch, who is away on his boat and can’t be reached. Bannon sees the obvious, telling Ailes, “If somebody called him about a merger, he’d take the fucking call…. You’re done.” A patois of coarseness is heard everywhere in this book, but especially from its two principals. Bannon was able to manage Trump the candidate when other, more seasoned operatives could not because Bannon is Trump’s unlikely spiritual twin, his bookish doppelgänger, unkempt in cargo shorts…”

Trump offers no evidence of voter fraud as he insists there’s ‘no choice’ but to investigate widespread voter fraud article from The Week. –

Trump can’t accept the fact that he is and always will be the popular vote losing president and there’s nothing he can do about it:

“President Trump insisted Wednesday that there is “no choice” but to investigate voter fraud. “We want to make America great again. We have to protect the integrity of the vote and our voters,” Trump said during an appearance at the first meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. Trump formed the commission after claiming, without any evidence, that he lost the popular vote because millions voted illegally in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump didn’t offer any evidence Wednesday, but he did detail some conversations he supposedly had with concerned citizens. Trump said the issue is “very important” to him because people told him during and after the presidential election that they were worried about “voter inconsistencies and irregularities, which they saw — in some cases having to do with very large numbers of people in certain states.” Experts have uncovered zero evidence of widespread voter fraud in the election and noted that voter fraud is actually quite rare.

Despite the obvious lack of proof, Trump said he’s very much looking forward to sharing the commission’s findings so “the full truth will be known and exposed.”

A small list of America’s worst-ever President’s ‘accomplishments’ since being ‘elected’:

“So after six months, has he delivered what he promised you?

1. He told you he’d repeal Obamacare and replace it with something “beautiful.” You bought it. But he didn’t repeal and he didn’t replace. (Just as well: His plan would have knocked at least 22 million off health insurance, including many of you.)

2. He told you he’d cut your taxes. You bought it. But tax “reform” is stalled. And if it ever moves, the only ones whose taxes will be cut are the wealthy.

3. He told you he’d invest $1 billion in our nation’ crumbling infrastructure. You bought it. But his infrastructure plan, which was really a giveaway to rich investors, is also stalled…”

Netanyahu Pushes Trump Toward Wider Wars article by Robert Perry from Consortium News. –

Once again our ‘ally’ is trying to push us – this time with an idiot in the White House – to more illegal wars in the Middle East on their behalf:

“A weakened, even desperate President Donald Trump must decide whether to stand up to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or to repudiate the Syrian partial ceasefire, which Trump hammered out with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 7.

Whether intentionally or not, this crossroads is where the months of Russia-gate hysteria have led the United States, making Trump even more vulnerable to Israeli and neoconservative pressure and making any cooperation with Russia more dangerous for him politically.

After meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris on Sunday, Netanyahu declared that Israel was totally opposed to the Trump-Putin cease-fire deal in southern Syria because it perpetuates Iranian presence in Syria in support of the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad.

Netanyahu’s position increases pressure on Trump to escalate U.S. military involvement in Syria and possibly move toward war against Iran and even Russia. The American neocons, who generally move in sync with Netanyahu’s wishes, already have as their list of current goals “regime changes” in Damascus, Tehran and Moscow – regardless of the dangers to the Middle East and indeed the world…”
