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 the unraveling of his fraudulent ‘voter integrity commission,’ a look at the metastasized canter that has been the first year of America’s illegitimate worst-ever president’s failed presidency, White House employees are not allowed to read our deranged Twitter tyrant’s tweets, more on Trump’s fraudulent tax reform scam, what happens when a very big country is led by a very demented little man and the price Americans are paying for their Liar-in-Chief’s profound ignorance, the number of lies coming out of Trump’s mouth on a daily basis continues rising – currently averaging at least 9 lies per day, our pussy-grabbing predatory president’s past is once again coming back to haunt him and a lot more.

What You Need to Know About Trump’s Latest Judicial Appointments article from Truthout. –
When America’s worst, most corrupt president appoints judges Americans are going to have serious problems and ‘Justice’ no longer exists:
“Republican President Donald Trump’s policy agenda has been moving at a snail’s pace — at least, it has for anything that hasn’t involved him simply signing executive orders.
Still, there is one place he has been remarkably successful, and that is at stacking the courts with far right judicial nominees. Benches that were left empty for years thanks to GOP filibustering and partisanship are now being loaded with a line of judges hand-picked by conservative action groups, leading us to a permanent social conservative judiciary that could haunt the country for decades to come.
The President’s earlier appointments — especially his Supreme Court pick Neil Gorsuch — gave us a clear guideline of the pro-business, anti-civil liberties, anti-federalism type nominees we could expect from the White House, and that has continued unabated even into the most recently confirmed candidates.
Take Joan Larsen: she will now serve on the US Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, despite opposition from 27 LGBTQ advocacy organizations who brought up Larson’s troubling record on gay rights issues, including calling the Supreme Court’s strike down of the Texas ban on sodomy “revolutionary.”…”

UNPRESIDENTED – A Complete Breakdown Of Donald Trump’s 42nd Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt. –
A breakdown of the latest week of misadventures in our Loser-in-Chief’s failed presidency:
“This week was a turning point. Not just in American politics, but the world. While Americans stood for their values at the ballot box, President Trump stood for nothing in Asia.
On November 7th, Americans repudiated Donald Trump and his counterproductive agenda in special elections around the U.S., giving Democrats historic wins and a feeling they hadn’t adequately felt since last November 7th: Hope.
As Americans readjusted to this new reality and the growing possibility that Democrats may indeed take back the House in 2018, President Trump was in Asia proving that he’s an even weaker leader than we feared. The only country he’s making great again is China (and Russia of course). Trump’s week ended with some more Putin bromancing and a tweet directed at Kim Jong-un that could’ve easily come straight from Regina George’s RAZR 3.
Aside from Democratic triumphs at home and Trumpian treachery abroad, a lot happened this week. The Paradise Papers made waves, revealing more Trump-Russia ties. Special Counsel Robert Mueller made moves, interviewing Stephen Miller and closing in on Michael Flynn. Republicans and right-wing propaganda disgustingly made rejecting pedophilia a partisan issue, defending the depraved Roy Moore…”

Trump Court Pick Forgot To Mention He’s Married To A White House Lawyer article from The Huffington Post. –
Yet another oversight on one of the many miscreants Trump selected for a lifetime judgeship:
“One of President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees didn’t tell the Senate about a major conflict of interest in his bid to become a lifetime federal judge: his wife is chief of staff to White House counsel Don McGahn, who oversees the president’s judicial nominations.
As first reported by The New York Times, Brett Talley, a nominee to an Alabama district court seat, did not disclose in his questionnaire to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he’s married to Ann Donaldson, McGahn’s top aide.
The questionnaire specifically asks Talley, 36, to identify family members who are “likely to present potential conflicts of interest.” He did not identify his wife.
Neither Talley nor the White House returned a request for comment…”

One Year Later: The Political Cancer Metastasizes article from Alternet. –
The damage incurred after our demented delusionist was ‘elected’:
“Exactly one day short of one year after the election of Donald Trump, the fog finally seemed to lift and the skies brightened. On Tuesday, voters rejected Trumpism in New Jersey and in Virginia, where establishment Republican Ed Gillespie embraced Trump’s racism and nativism, indicating how deeply the president’s poison has penetrated even the precincts of the party that should be vigorously in opposition to it.
In Maine, voters approved an expansion of Medicaid that their right-wing governor had rejected several times. In Washington state, Democrats won the upper house of the legislature. Meanwhile, GOP members of Congress are deserting the ship, one by one. As Steve Bannon marshals his “alt-right” forces to defeat mainstream Republicans, his primary candidates may be so far off the political spectrum next year that they could derail the Republicans’ Senate hopes. Across the board, Democratic prospects in 2018 look promising, if the Democrats don’t manage to screw things up, which is a very big if.
And yet, before anyone gets too sanguine, consider where we are. There will come a time, no doubt, when professional historians look back on these times and assess what happened to America, and I don’t think the assessment will be pretty. They will think of it as a period of national derangement, a time when America lost its bearings.
One year ago, Donald Trump, through the vicissitudes of our bizarre electoral system, beat Hillary Clinton, and one year ago I wrote a valedictory to the America I had known and loved, quoting lines from W.H. Auden’s September 1, 1939, in which he described the cataclysm of Hitler’s armies marching into Poland and launching World War II. America had flirted with disaster in the past, but we prided ourselves on not having succumbed to it, save with the Civil War. Somehow alleged good sense and solid institutions kept us from going over the precipice. Somehow…”

Is the Trump administration afflicted with ‘Moscow memory’? article from The Guardian. –
No it’s not, it’s just full of liars and criminals:
“For so many people who are close to Donald Trump, Russia is the Bermuda Triangle of their memory.
Conversations and meetings seem to pass through this mysterious quadrant of their brains and simply disappear. Even when the wreckage is found on some server or other, they profess ignorance, confusion or innocence. And sometimes all three at once.
On Tuesday the synapses inside the skull of attorney general Jeff Sessions magically reconnected around a March 2016 campaign meeting in which he heard Trump’s point man on Russian policy discuss how the candidate could get together with one Vladimir Putin.
This is kind of awkward since Sessions had sworn, like the honorable southern gentleman that he is, that there were no absolutely no such contacts with the Russians, no siree…”

President Trump has made 1,628 false or misleading claims over 298 days article from The Washington Post. –
Which speaks volumes as to why our ‘president’ is illegitimate and has no mandate:
“For some reason, our year-long project analyzing, categorizing and tracking every false or misleading claim by President Trump had seemed like quite a burden in the past month. Well, the numbers are in and now we know why: In the past 35 days, Trump has averaged an astonishing nine claims a day.
The total now stands at 1,628 claims in 298 days, or an average of 5.5 claims a day. That puts the president on track to reach 1,999 claims by the end of his first year in office, though he obviously would easily exceed 2,000 if he maintained the pace of the past month. (Our full interactive graphic can be found here.)
As regular readers know, the president has a tendency to repeat himself — often. There are now at least 50 claims that he has repeated three or more times.
Trump’s most repeated claim, uttered 60 times, was some variation of the statement that the Affordable Care Act is dying and “essentially dead.” The Congressional Budget Office has said that the Obamacare exchanges, despite well-documented issues, are not imploding and are expected to remain stable for the foreseeable future. Indeed, healthy enrollment for the coming year has surprised health-care experts…”

WATCH: 16 Women Tell Their Heartbreaking Stories of Sexual Assault by Trump article from Alternet. –
Our pussy-grabbing predator president’s past is once again coming back to haunt him.
This is one of the saddest aspects of the Trump candidacy and presidency article from The Raw Story. –
The fact that Trump is only in office to enrich himself and his family while screwing everyone else over is going to cost Trump dearly:
“Looking back at the last tumultuous year, to me, one of the saddest aspects of the Trump candidacy and presidency is that both in part were built from one of the basest of human impulses: revenge.
We’re taught that ideally, the desire to run for office should reflect a commitment to public service. And we know that the reality is far too often otherwise, running to slake a thirst for power and money that overpowers the greater good.
Yet to seek elected office for revenge, to use it to get back at someone or inflict harm on them or anyone associated with them seems in some ways even worse; shabby, petty and immoral.
Examine the roots of the Trump campaign and you see two men eager to use position to take revenge, to get even for insults, imagined or sometimes real, and to lash out at perceived conspiracies against them:…”
