How the parallels between Trump and Muammar Gaddafi of Libya – while quite creepy – are eerily similar begins today’s misadventures of our malignant minority-elect president* as our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s desires continue showing in everything he does, our imbecilic gift that keeps on giving has no intention of letting up, the damage from having America’s most corrupt-ever president* and his parasitic administration in charge of this country is growing, Trump lied about draining the swamp that he now owns, repercussions from our Lord of the Lies over his ignorant decision to derail the Iran Nuclear agreement are beginning to appear – as are the lies he used to justify it, our nefarious narcissist has been a masterful con man and fake news manipulator for decades, the foreign policies of our illegitimate president* and his administration are built on corruption and ignorance, why having a bull shitting con artist who lies all the time in charge is really bad for this country, listening to the head cheerleader (Sean Hannity) of his Ministry of Propaganda is making our lackluster lame duck president* look even more foolish and corrupt and much more.

Rudy Giuliani Unveils New Legal Defense That Trump Is A Clueless Idiot article from PoliticusUSA. –
That has been obvious since America’s impotent imbecile took office, but now it’s more obvious with his equally imbecilic lawyer in charge of his defense:
“Rudy Giuliani is trying to defend Trump by saying that the president had no idea that his lawyer who he talks to regularly was selling access to the White House and the Oval Office. In other words, Giuliani has adopted the Trump is a clueless idiot defense.
CNN’s Dana Bash reported, “I just got off the phone with Rudy Giuliani about this very issue. And asked him the key question, I think, did the president know that Michael Cohen was doing this. And here’s what Giuliani told me. He said that he talked to — he, Giuliani, talked to the president one time about it before the latest in the last 36 hours, our reporting about other attempts to get business. At that time, the president told Giuliani that he was not aware of the situation. And Giuliani said, obviously now things are getting a little bit more — the word he used was but then Giuliani went on to say he’s only going to be concerned about it if somebody says this involves the president. And so far they are not saying it. Now, again, this is Giuliani saying he spoke to the president only once about the notion of Michael Cohen. Basically trying to sell access. President didn’t know about it. But has not spoken to him since our reporting about the volume with which the — Michael Cohen tried to do this.”…”

Swamp Thing article from The Atlantic. –
Looking at his actions it’s obvious that Trump lied his ass off when he promised to drain the swamp – since he owns it now:
“Donald Trump promised to “drain the swamp” while running for office. Voters gave him the opportunity to follow through when they propelled him to the White House. Instead, he surrounded himself with people who saw his victory as an opportunity to enrich themselves by selling the promise of access or influence.
This betrayal of the American public warrants more attention. Trump voters who wanted to rid Washington of sellouts should be most upset, but no one wants to admit that the person they voted for was misrepresenting his intentions. And those who rely on commentators like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Rush Limbaugh, and Tucker Carlson for information lack many relevant facts.
Here’s what Trump voters should know. Michael Cohen was the president’s personal attorney. He stepped up when someone was needed to pay hush money to Stormy Daniels on the eve of the election, even using a shell corporation created under a pseudonym to hide the matter.
But that corporation wasn’t just for paying off the pornography actress. He also used it to receive huge sums of money from folks with powerful interests in influencing the U.S. government. “A Korean defense company competing for a U.S. contract said it paid him $150,000 to advise it on accounting practices,” The Washington Post reported earlier this week. “A global pharmaceutical company said it paid him $1.2 million to provide insight into health-care policy—money it said it was required to keep paying even after concluding that Cohen had little to offer. A telecommunication company said it turned to him simply to better understand the Trump administration.”…”

The escalation between Iran and Israel has everything to do with Trump article from Think Progress. –
Yet another repercussion of our Liar and Thief derailing the Iran Nuclear agreement – apparently in part on Israel’s behalf:
“Tensions have escalated at a frightening pace between Iran and Israel in the three days since President Donald Trump said he was pulling the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal.
Although Israel has struck Iranian targets in Syria several times in the past, Trump’s announcement to leave the multilateral Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) earlier this week has led Israel to intensify its assault. On Tuesday, Israel struck Iranian troops in Syria who back President Bashar al-Assad’s forces in their fight against rebel groups and the self-proclaimed Islamic State.
As it had said it would, Iran finally retaliated on Wednesday. By early Thursday, Israel returned fire and, as the Associated Press reported on Friday, it called on the U.N. Security Council to condemn Iran’s strikes.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman accused Israel of attacking Syria under “fabricated and baseless excuses,” breaching Syria’s sovereignty…”

White House: Payments to Cohen’s shell company are actually evidence of Trump ‘draining the swamp’ article from ThinkProgress. –
Always lying and trying to twist shit around to make our big Orange turd ball president* look good – and always failing miserably:
“At the White House press briefing on Friday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended AT&T paying $600,000 to a shell company owned by President Donald Trump’s personal attorney, Michael Cohen. Sanders claimed the payments actually show that the president isn’t beholden to special interests.
“I think this further proves that the president is not going to be influenced by special interests,” Sanders said. “This is actually the definition of draining the swamp, something the president talked about repeatedly during the campaign.”
Sanders was then pressed on how a major corporation paying Trump’s lawyer $600,000 for access constituted draining the swamp. “I think it’s pretty clear that the Department of Justice opposed the [AT&T and TimeWarner] merger,” she said. “Certainly the president has not been influenced by any, or his administration influenced by, any outside special interests.”

Trump abandons key campaign promise on prescription medications article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
More on Trump’s broken promises and lies involving his prescription drug scam:
“One of the few key areas on which Donald Trump broke with Republican Party orthodoxy was lowering prices on prescription drugs. In fact, as regular readers know, he complained bitterly shortly before taking office about the pharmaceutical industry’s powerful lobbyists, and said drug companies are “getting away with murder.”
The president has even accused the drug industry of corruption, arguing that pharmaceutical companies contribute “massive amounts of money” to politicians as part of a scheme to keep the cost of medicines higher.
He even had a bold idea: if elected, Trump told voters, he’d leverage Medicare’s buying power to lower the cost of prescription medication. Shortly after the Republican’s inauguration, the White House said the new president “absolutely” stood by that position.
And then, his posture changed, to the point that Trump put a pharmaceutical company executive in charge of the Department of Health and Human Services. And if that wasn’t enough to cement this president’s role as a key ally of drug makers, today did the trick…”

Trump’s Attempt To Make An Example Of The Immigrant ‘Caravan’ Is Backfiring article from The Huffington Post. –
Once again our Twitter tyrant shoots himself in the foot by tweeting before thinking – which he is obviously incapable of:
“The Trump administration sought to make an example of 11 migrants, whom officials say were part of a large refugee caravan, by making a public affair of hauling them into criminal courts rather than putting them through the civil deportation system.
But President Donald Trump’s caravan prosecutions are already hitting roadblocks. Lawyers are challenging most of the normally open-and-shut misdemeanor immigration prosecutions and using the president’s tweets and public statements about Central Americans to do it.
The severity of the cases hardly matches the outsized pronouncements from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Prosecutors have offered to release most of the 11 migrants based on time served if they agree to plead guilty. Then they would then take their claims to immigration court, having their currently clean criminal records stained with a conviction.
In an unusual step, though, at least six of the 11 alleged caravan members are seeking to have their cases dismissed entirely, contending the Trump administration selectively prosecuted them based on their national origin as it sought to deter Central American asylum seekers. Some secured reduced bonds, which may allow them to fight their cases without being jailed…”

Historian Benjamin Carter Hett: Trump’s ‘cultivation of dishonesty’ strongly reminiscent of Nazis article from Salon. –
The many ways our Hitler-aspiring wannabe dictator’s despotic delusions of grandeur make him emulate his Nazi hero:
“Mark Twain may have been correct: History does not repeat itself but it often does rhymes.
Donald Trump’s behavior is drawn from a familiar authoritarian playbook: threats of violence against his political enemies, contempt for the rule of law, incessant lies and corruption, militant nationalism, disdain for a free press, and the portrayal of his supporters as “real citizens” over and against lesser others. Trump has merely adapted those most vulgar of political tactics to fit America’s political culture.
But there are more sinister echoes from one of the darkest moments in modern history in Donald Trump’s version of American fascism. Some people hide behind sophomoric rules of internet culture, where to compare anything in American life to the horrors of Hitler and the Nazi era is automatically dismissed. That is functional surrender. Real resistance requires facing America’s present circumstances with open eyes.
How is Donald Trump’s political style and agenda similar (or not) to that of the Nazis and Adolf Hitler? What parallels and comparisons exist between the economic and social crisis in German society and democracy during the 1920s and 1930s and the United States in the age of Trump? How did mainstream right-wing German politicians — like Republicans today — enable Hitler’s rise to power? How are anxiety and guilt among the dominant group regarding their treatment of minority groups used by right-wing authoritarians? What lessons do that earlier era of “fake news” and “the big lie” hold for America now?…”
