Trump Is Nervous. He Should Be. article from Truthout. –
Once Mueller’s investigation is finished, Trump will still have part of Congress crawling up his ass with a microscope and it isn’t going to end well for his criminal regime or his equally corrupt family.
Trump finds a new way to falsely claim exoneration in Russia scandal article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
For someone who keeps claiming innocents while acting guilty as hell, the Donald keeps finding new ways – albeit unsuccessfully – to lie about it.
What did the president know and when did he know it? Trump knew it all, from the beginning article from Salon. –
The Don’s history of lying about his endless corruption has been blatantly obvious to anyone paying attention:
“Every week seems to bring another Trump scandal. There are so many now we’re going to have to start numbering them. Up until now the sheer volume of alleged misdeeds and malfeasance has actually worked in the president’s favor. There is so much out there that it’s hard to keep the whole picture straight in your mind and that has the weird effect of making things seem less serious than they actually are.
We know that the Trump base and the vast majority of Republican voters still support the president and think it’s all nothing but a witch hunt. They are mesmerized by the president and propagandized by Fox News and other right-wing media. But I would imagine that even people who don’t like Trump but don’t follow all this closely or in much detail wonder whether maybe the whole thing is just a collection of complaints that don’t really add up to anything.
That’s why it’s meaningful when the likes of Jim VandeHei and Mike Allen of Axios, journalists whom the political establishment sees as avatars of acceptable mainstream thinking, decide that it’s time to take stock of how many scandals are now being investigated and how wide the scope of the alleged criminality and corruption has become. It’s rather sobering. On Thursday they wrote out a partial list, entitling it, “The biggest political scandal in American history.”
VandeHei and Allen report that historians tell them there are only two previous scandals that even come close to what we are dealing with now: One is Watergate, and even Americans who weren’t alive at the time have heard plenty about that one. The other would be Teapot Dome, a bribery scandal under the manifestly corrupt Warren G. Harding administration in the 1920s…”

All of Trump’s bogus bluster about Witch Hunts, presidential harassment and such are quite revealing and he’s going to learn quickly how much of a bitch Karma can be.
Trump is claiming accomplishments while ignoring the reality of his failures article from The Raw Story. –
Claiming his embellishments as successes while ignoring the massive failure that is his corrupt, illegitimate presidency reveals how out of touch with reality the Donald is:
“President Trump has again claimed, via Twitter, to have done more than any past president, while blaming the “hostile and corrupt media” for holding him back.
Despite the most hostile and corrupt media in the history of American politics, the Trump Administration has accomplished more in its first two years than any other Administration. Judges, biggest Tax & Regulation Cuts, V.A. Choice, Best Economy, Lowest Unemployment & much more!

His tweet comes just two days after a report from the U.S. Department of Labor showed that the economy only added 20,000 new jobs, compared to the 180,000 that had been estimated.
The Trump “best economy” has largely been thanks to holdovers from the previous administration, though this is showing signs of slowing due to issues such as trumps trade war with China and other countries, leading to financial crises amongst farmers and others…”

Yet another failed week of Trump’s troubled presidency and reflection on the joke it has fast become:
Fox News amplifies Trump’s brand of authoritarianism, but they are also the engineers of it.
Without Fox’s decades of dishonest programming, there would be no Trump base.
Now, they spread his lies and drive his agenda.
This should concern everyone.https://t.co/i569jfOPHu

Trump’s new budget abandons all pretense of being fiscally responsible article from ThinkProgress. –
Trump’s delusional budget is a joke that doesn’t even come close to balancing the budget in ten years:
“President Donald Trump’s new budget proposal for the fiscal year 2020, which was released on Monday, breaks with his repeated campaign promises to rein in the debt and eliminate the deficit.
The newly released budget document — which has very little chance of being enacted wholesale, but nevertheless kicks off the annual federal budget process by articulating the administration’s priorities — calls for massive cuts in domestic programs, increases defense spending, and renews the president’s traditional call for billions of dollars to be allocated for the purpose of building a wall on the Mexican border. Trump has been continually rebuffed by Congress on that last request.
Nonetheless, the document’s intended message contends to be one of fiscal discipline.
“My 2020 Budget builds on the tremendous progress we have made and provides a clear roadmap for the Congress to bring Federal spending and debt under control. We must protect future generations from Washington’s habitual deficit spending,” Trump writes in the “budget message of the president” the precedes the budget document’s accounting…”
On Medicare, Trump arrives at his ‘Read My Lips’ moment article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
It’s not surprising that Donnie lied about not cutting Medicare but his new ‘budget’ proposes cutting $845 Billion from it, and that’s going to come back and haunt him.
Trump’s Immoral Budget Could Hand Democrats The White House In 2020 article from PoliticusUSA. –
More on the joke that is the disastrous budget concocted by Trump that is going to end up costing his miserable ass big time when everyone – those smart enough not to support him – learns how much of a scam it is:
The #TrumpBudget is cruel and reckless, with billions in cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, home energy assistance, teen pregnancy prevention, SNAP, afterschool programs, & much more. It would be a cold day in hell before I helped pass a budget like this. https://t.co/qreHcKzCWr

It’s Uncanny How Much Trump Sounds Like Nixon article from Crooks and Liars. –
The growing desperation and multitude of actions that make him look guilty – including spreading lies on Twitter to the minority of morons stupid enough to believe everything his lying ass says – reveal Trump’s Nixonian delusions:
“CNN released this side-by-side comparison of Trump and Nixon this morning.
And yeah, they both want an end to their investigation, claim innocence and have an “I am not a crook” moment, Trump adding lots of “believe me’s” to his denials.
Of course, Trump never had a successful trip to Asia like Nixon did.
He didn’t make the world better with the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency like Nixon did…”

No one should be surprised that candidate Donnie lied – that’s all he ever does and his entire fraudulent, failed presidency is nothing but endless lies.
I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. Huckabee copied me.

Trump’s Dystopian Budget Proposal. Slashing Social Programs. More Money for War article from The Centre for Research on Globalization. –
More on the Donald’s dystopian dipshittery and broken promises as made evident by the heaping pile of shit he calls his budget:
“Trump’s dead on arrival budget proposal to Congress is all about funding greater militarism and belligerence, along with serving corporate interests and high-net worth households – while gutting vital social programs.
It’s a proposal only Wall Street, the military, industrial, security complex, Big Oil, and monied interests could love.
Totaling $4.75 trillion, Trump wants an increase of $34 billion in war spending, euphemistically called “defense” – at a time sharp cuts are needed.
Washington’s only enemies are invented ones. No real ones exist. He wants $8.6 billion more for wall construction along the southern border with Mexico…”
New Report Shows Trump’s ‘Tough on Crime’ Stance Doesn’t Extend to ‘Lawbreaking Corporations’ article from Common Dreams. –
Probably because they own Donald’s grifter ass and they know they’ve made a good investment because his record of corrupt ignorance is unbeatable and unfathomable:
Once Trump took over the CFPB, enforcement activity against lawbreaking corporations sank by more than 50 percent.
In one recent case, the CFPB fined a lender accused of swindling veterans out of their benefits just *one dollar* after the lender claimed he couldn’t pay.

Trump may send volunteer force to border article from Politico. –
Donnie is searching for a way to ‘legally’ send volunteers to the border – the sad part is that the minor fraction of this country that supports him will be stupid enough to do it:
“The Trump administration may send a volunteer emergency response team to assist with security and humanitarian efforts at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to four current and former officials briefed on the discussions.
With border arrest numbers on the rise, the Trump administration has been “casting about” for ways to devote additional resources to stem the flow of migrants, according to a DHS official familiar with the discussions.
“My question is, do they actually need more people on the border or are they just trying to make a statement here?’” asked Craig Fugate, who was FEMA administrator during the Obama administration.
A second DHS official similarly questioned the administration’s motives for considering the force. It “makes eminent sense for a hurricane,” this person said, but not for the border. “All of this is just to buttress the administration’s claim that there’s an emergency,” the official said…”

After NZ Massacre By White Nationalist, Trump Proudly Signs Veto Promoting White Nationalism article from Crooks and Liars. –
Feigning sorrow about the White Nationalist massacre in NZ and lying about his non-existent national emergency at the border – while ignoring the one he created – as he vetoed the bill aimed at stopping his own personal White Nationalist agenda involving the fraudulent national emergency he dubiously decided to declare is quite revealing:
“It’s so on-brand for Trump to express fake sorrow about people being gunned down at prayer, and then turn around and use the exact same language that inspired the murderer to commit the slaughter.
At the his ceremony celebrating (celebrating?) his first veto, he said some words that weren’t wrong, but weren’t quite right or true expressing solidarity with New Zealand for the tragedy they’ve suffered over the last day. He did say the word “mosques,” though not the word “Muslims.” He mentioned how we’ve had a close relationship with New Zealand, blah, blah, blah, and anything they need, we’d provide.
Welp. Turns out one thing that they might need is for him to stop spreading and codifying his white supremacist rhetoric and policies, but he’s not gonna do that. In the very next breath he explained why he was proud —so proud — to sign the veto aimed at blocking his declaration of a National Emergency for funding his border wall. He vetoed that so proudly, and continued his propaganda about the dire threat of brown people rushing the border, killers and drug dealers, nearly to a person…”
