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 malignant minority-elect president* with his aspirations of becoming a dictator – but fortunately for the majority of this country, he’s too stupid to successfully pull it off, Trump is freaking out because the lies about his exoneration in the Russia probe have been blown to smithereens with the release – albeit highly redacted in Attorney General Barr’s ongoing attempts to keep the multitude of crimes committed by the illegitimate wannabe despot he works for covered up – of the Mueller report, the crimes against the Don have been laid out and will haunt him for the remainder of his failed presidency, the Donald is suing to prevent his financial records from being turned over to Congress – in all probability due to the fact that it will reveal how much of a fraudulent, treasonous crook he really is and much more.
The crisis is here: Trump is a weak president – but he’s a budding authoritarian article from Alternet. –
Trump is an illegitimate, lousy president* who wants to be a dictator, but he’s too stupid to pull it off successfully.
Trump Is Freaking Over Obstruction Of Justice Info In Mueller Report article from PoliticusUSA. –
There is more than ample evidence of the Donald’s Obstruction of Justice, including in the Mueller report which, despite his lies, did not exonerate him, and he’s freaking out about it:

A Complete Analysis Of Trump’s 116th Unpresidented Week As POTUS article from Rantt. –
A look back at the Don’s most recent failed week, and as usual, they keep getting worse:
“The President the Founding Fathers feared is here. The Constitution was crafted to protect the American people from a wannabe monarch who would corruptly use his power to protect his interests, financially enrich himself, and drift America towards autocracy. But the Constitution fails when there is no one willing to enforce it.
This week was different. America’s institutions are being tested, the rule of law is being strained, and the constitutional mechanisms put in place to ensure checks and balances appear to be failing. The President of the United States appears hell-bent on consolidating his power at any cost, even if that cost is America’s democratic system as we know it. Unfortunately, none of this is hyperbole.
The lawlessness the Trump administration has displayed over the last two years is picking up speed. After Attorney General William Barr took it upon himself to clear the President of obstruction of justice, Trump appears emboldened. President Trump has never been one to hide his corruption and frustration with America’s democratic processes, but this week things went up several notches.
Multiple reports, and President Trump’s own tweets, revealed the extent to which the Trump administration has endeavored to violate immigration law. President Trump reportedly asked then-CBP head Kevin McAleena to violate the law by closing the border, then offered him a pardon if he were to be jailed for doing so. Trump denied the reports and threatened to order DHS officials to violate the law – in one tweet…”
Here are 5 lies Trump defenders are guaranteed to tell about the Mueller report – and why you shouldn’t believe them article from The Raw Story. –
Trump’s lap dog Attorney General – who will end up on the wrong side of history with his corrupt boss – had a press conference to spin the lies he’s trying to push in order to cover up Trump’s crimes, despite the fact that it isn’t going to work well for either one of them.

This Is Why Trump Fears The Incoming Mueller Report article from Rantt. –
Because there is more than ample evidence of his myriad of crimes and regardless of how Barr tries to spin it, it’s still going to be damaging to the Don:
“Tomorrow our political reality will change — a critical moment over 22 months in the making. On Thursday, a redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report on Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, the Trump campaign’s connection to that interference, and President Trump’s potential obstruction of justice is set to be released.
On March 24, Attorney General William Barr initially released a 4-page summary of Mueller’s nearly 400-page report. Barr released this after receiving the report less than 48 hours earlier. Given Barr’s previous 19-page memo declaring a president can’t obstruct justice, the summary stirred controversy when Barr took it upon himself to clear President Trump of obstruction. Barr also alleged that Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not find enough evidence to charge the Trump campaign in a criminal conspiracy with the Russian government.
Many were skeptical of Barr’s report, and for good reason. Multiple news organizations reported that some on Mueller’s team believe Barr downplayed their findings. They have reportedly told associates that the evidence of obstruction of justice they found was “alarming and significant”. And when it comes to conspiracy, although they could not find enough evidence to charge it criminally, the evidence of collusion was “compelling”.
Of the 101 words of Mueller’s report Barr cited in his summary, there was this important quote: “‘…while this report does not conclude that the President committed a crime, it also does not exonerate him.’” In spite of this, President Trump claimed “total and complete exoneration” in the aftermath of the summary, but his tone suddenly shifted thereafter. President Trump then began calling Mueller and his investigators treasonous and made clear he wants the report suppressed. It appears he has grown aware of how politically ruinous the report could be. It’s now been reported that the Justice Department has discussed the White House about the conclusions in the report. Former and current White House officials are reportedly concerned that the report may expose that they gave Mueller damning evidence against President Trump. Trump’s lawyers have also reportedly prepared a counter-report…”
Mueller report listed 10 episodes of potential obstruction – but Barr cleared Trump because of his ‘non-corrupt motives’ article from Alternet. –
Barr cleared Trump of obstruction because of his delusional belief that Trump has ‘non-corrupt motives’ despite the fact that every facet of everything Trump does is corrupt – so once again this won’t clear Trump and it’s high time for Mueller to testify openly to our Congress.
Robert Mueller Found Enough Evidence To Indict Donald Trump article from PoliticusUSA. –
The Donald’s ‘exoneration’ claims have been blown to bits as the Mueller report reveals that there was enough evidence to indict him but Barr illegally decided not to:
In bizarre press conference, Barr said what Trump wanted to hear article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
By trying to protect our treasonous president*, Barr only made things worse – and clearly proved that Trump was anything but exonerated.
The Mueller Report Is an Impeachment Referral article from The Atlantic. –
Despite the lies from Trump’s butt buddy Barr, the Mueller report puts the investigation into the hands of Congress to investigate and paves the way to impeachment:
“The redacted version of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report released on Thursday runs 448 pages. But its most important implication can be summarized in a single sentence: There is sufficient evidence that President Donald Trump obstructed justice to merit impeachment hearings.
A basic principle lies at the heart of the American criminal-justice system: The accused is entitled to a fair defense and a chance to clear his name. Every American is entitled to this protection, from the humblest citizen all the way up to the chief executive. And that, Mueller explained in his report, is why criminal allegations against a sitting president should be considered by Congress and not the Justice Department. The Mueller report, in short, is an impeachment referral.
In his report, Mueller took pains to detail why he “determined not to make a traditional prosecutorial judgment” as to whether the president had broken the law by obstructing justice. He began by noting that he accepted the opinion of the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC)—which issues guidance for the executive branch on questions of law—that a sitting president cannot be indicted.
That, Mueller explained, posed an insurmountable problem. A normal investigation would end with a prosecutor deciding to bring charges, or to drop the case. It’s a binary choice. But “fairness concerns counseled against potentially reaching that judgment when no charges can be brought.” Ordinarily, a criminal charge would result in “a speedy and public trial, with all the procedural protections that surround a criminal case.” But if Mueller were to state plainly that, in his judgment, the president had broken the law and obstructed justice, it would afford “no such adversarial opportunity for public name-clearing before an impartial adjudicator.” In other words, because a sitting president cannot be indicted, making such a charge publicly would effectively deny Trump his day in court, and the chance to clear his name…”
Trump Blames Obama For Mueller’s Damning Report article from PoliticusUSA. –
Still blaming – falsely as usual – his predecessor for his failures speaks volumes as to Donnie’s corruption, delusions, and ignorance:
1. Russia interfered
2. They did it to help Trump
3. Trump wanted their help
4. Trump’s campaign met with the Russians to seek out that help
5. Trump and his campaign repeatedly lied about those contacts
6. Trump fired the FBI Director to stop an investigation into the matter

Take it from a magician: Trump isn’t trying to distract us, he’s misdirecting us article from The Los Angeles Times. –
How recognizing Trump’s dubious distractions and trickery is the key to understanding just how corrupt and compromised he is:
“Critics of President Trump routinely depict his maneuvers — such as shutting down the government and threatening to close the southern border — as distractions.
“He loves the distraction from his other problems,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has said. Ezra Klein, a political commentator and editor at Vox, goes so far as to declare distraction “the core of Donald Trump’s political strategy.”
So pervasive is this notion, political cartoonist Tom Tomorrow titled one of his graphic commentaries, “Are Trump’s Distractions a Distraction From His Distractions?”
As a sociologist who studies political rhetoric and, more important, as a magician, I have a different take. Trump isn’t trying to distract us; he’s misdirecting us. The distinction is important. As Gary Kurtz, a prominent Canadian magician put it, misdirection “has nothing to do with distraction” and “everything to do with controlling audience attention at all times.”…”

What Will It Take For Trump to Get His Due? article from Counter Punch. –
It’ll take voters to remove the corrupt piece of shit that illegitimately occupies the White House – despite the fact that he belongs behind bars:
“It is hard to recall now but before the 2016 election, blatant contempt for the rule of law and other longstanding (small-r) republican values, public displays of stupidity, extreme character flaws, and irrefutable evidence of psychological instability could wreck a presidential campaign; and it was practically axiomatic that no presidency could be headed by anyone to whom those descriptions apply.
No longer. By force of example, Donald Trump has proven the conventional wisdom wrong.
The sixty percent or so of Americans whose heads are screwed on more or less correctly have therefore had to face up to the fact that as many as forty percent of their fellow citizens are either too benighted to face the truth about the president they elected, or, if they do have some inkling, that they either don’t care, or actually like being led by “a fucking moron.”
It was one of the handful of by now long gone “adults in the room,” Trump’s first Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, a man of impeccably nefarious capitalist (and anti-environmentalist) credentials, who described Trump that way. He was spot on right…”

Mueller’s report: A profile of a president willing to sell out his country article from Salon. –
Some of the many reasons the most corrupt, illegitimate president* in history needs to be held accountable for his criminal endeavors:
“When Attorney General William Barr provided a brief, four-page summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation on March 22, it was obvious there were more questions remaining than answers. The full report was rumored to have clocked in at well over three hundred pages and Barr’s summary left much to be desired as to just what Mueller had uncovered. The message that Donald Trump would not be charged with offenses directly relating to Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, and that the Department of Justice had decided not to file charges of obstruction of justice, was met by celebration with some and puzzlement by others.
Having finally had a chance to look at an initial, redacted version of the report, Americans got a chance last Thursday to see for themselves just what horrors Attorney General Barr had been trying to bury for his president. In Mueller’s 448-page detailed narrative of his investigation, we saw the story of a campaign deeply steeped in Russian efforts to undermine our free and fair elections and a president attempting to or actively breaking the law to cover it up.
Though Barr’s continued misinformation campaign was meant to spin the report and Trump flip-flopped from trumpeting the investigation as totally exonerating him to characterizing it as “bullshit” on Saturday, Mueller leaves little doubt in his report as to just what he found. It’s as bad as anyone could have imagined, and, in many cases, so much worse.
The first volume of the report details the Russian hacking of the 2016 Presidential election, its many operations that intended to aid Donald Trump’s election, and a troubling account of interactions between Trump’s campaign and those Russian operations. Though Mueller wasn’t able to prove there was an explicit conspiracy between Russia and the campaign, what he did find was a slew of interactions wherein the campaign and Russian individuals communicated and cooperated, every instance toeing the line between conduct that was technically legal but disturbing, and outright criminal…”

The problem with Trump’s ‘no obstruction’ claim: it’s plainly false article from Rachel Maddow on MSNBC. –
Twitter tyrant Trump expects his delusions to become law once he willfully tweets his never-ending ignorance, but he’s either never read the report or he’s just trying to goad his moronic miscreant supporters into taking his lying words as the truth:
“I can imagine some Americans being confused by the recent talk about Donald Trump’s possible impeachment. After all, the public has been told for the last month that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report was great news for the White House.
The president enjoyed a “victory lap.” He declared “game over.” His critics and skeptics were despondent. The special counsel proved, definitively, there was “no collusion” and “no obstruction.” Trump was “totally and completely exonerated.”
Over the last seven days, the president has published the words “no obstruction” on Twitter seven times, including this pair on Saturday:
“Despite the fact that the Mueller Report should not have been authorized in the first place & was written as nastily as possible by 13 (18) Angry Democrats who were true Trump Haters, including highly conflicted Bob Mueller himself, the end result is No Collusion, No Obstruction!…”
