Trump’s baseless, paranoid claims that Obama is behind the massive protests against him, Trump’s approval ratings still falling, White House plants Fake News stories to smear reporters, White House trying to orchestrate a cover up of Trump’s ties to Russia, treason and treachery from the U.S. Congress, Trump’s accomplishments – or lack thereof – during his first month in office, what the New York Times and Trump have in common, the latest in Trump’s fake news in his war with the media, two words Trump says every time he lies, FBI may be too compromised to investigate Trump’s ties to Russia, the more Trump denies things the bigger the hole he digs himself, questions of who is actually in charge at the White House, even George W.

Trump’s Approval Ratings Still In Free Fall article from the International Business Times. –
https://www.yahoo.com/news/trumps-approval-ratings-still-free-144510783.html

“President Donald Trump was well on his way this week to cementing a presidential record for the least-approved first 100 days in American history.

A poll released Sunday night by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal indicated Trump was continuing to face the lowest approval ratings for any incoming president in recent years, with the majority of Americans disapproving of Trump’s first few weeks on the job. About 48 percent of those surveyed said they viewed the president’s performance unfavorably, compared to 44 percent who approved of Trump’s first 100 days thus far.

The joint survey was conducted from Feb. 18-22 and surveyed 1,000 Americans across the United States. But its results weren’t out of the ordinary: Trump’s approval ratings have continued to sink to new lows amid ongoing investigations into his presidential campaign’s ties to Russian government operatives, as well as his continued Twitter spats with everyone from Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.t, to the national intelligence community’s FBI and CIA…”

Trump’s approval ratings still sitting at historic low, more on the alt-right wing miscreants in Trump’s cabal, rising hatred and misogyny on the raise courtesy of the Trump campaign, Trump saw Sweden terror attack on FOX’s fake news, the consequences of chaos, pure fantasy Trumponomics, and more.

Poll: Trump’s approval rating after first month is historically low article from AOL News. –

“A month into Donald Trump’s presidency and his job approval rating keeps breaking records — but probably not in the way the administration would prefer.

According to a Gallup poll over the weekend, Trump’s 40 percent job approval is 21 points below the historic average for elected presidents around mid-February (61 percent). That’s also 11 points below the lowest mid-February numbers for any other president in Gallup’s history.

While across the board Trump’s numbers are historically low, approval ratings have become hotly debated under the new administration. Discrepancies have been popping up across varying polling organizations as some paint a rosier picture than others…”

Trump’s lies are finally catching up with him, more on the growing resistance to our minority-elect President, a month of flailing deception from the Trump cabal, reality of Trump stressing people out, delusional dipshittery, more on the other rabid alt-right whack job Stephen Miller, Trump’s endless self-pity, dishonest assertions and scapegoating, corrupt Congress critters avoiding their constituents, Trumps depravity, racism, simplemindedness, ecocide and corruption, Trump’s bottom-feeding percentile presidency and more.

Resisting Trump: The Great American Awakening article from Common Dreams. –

“Old wounds break open. Deep, encrusted wrongs are suddenly visible. The streets flow with anger and solidarity. The past and the future meet.

The news is All Trump, All the Time, but what’s really happening is only minimally about Donald Trump, even though his outrageous actions and bizarre alliances are the trigger.

“As the nightmare reality of Donald Trump sinks in, we need to put our resistance in a larger perspective,” Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman wrote recently, describing Trump as “our imperial vulture come home to roost.”

The context in which most Trumpnews is delivered is miniscule: more or less beginning and ending with the man himself — his campaign, his businesses, his appointees, his ego, his endless scandals (“what did he know and when did he know it?”) — which maintains the news at the level of entertainment, and surrounds it with the fantasy context of a United States that used to be an open, fair and peace-loving democracy, respectful of all humanity. In other words, Trump is the problem, and if he goes away, we can get back to what we used to be…”

In a Time of Executive Orders, Upholding Truth is a Revolutionary Act article from Counter Punch. –
http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/02/14/in-a-time-of-executive-orders-upholding-truth-is-a-revolutionary-act/

“The first month of Trump in office unleashed chaos and turmoil in the nation, creating what some called a constitutional crisis. With a series of executive orders threatening women’s reproductive rights, immigrants and sacred water guarded by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, public outrage galvanized in protests across the country.

This new resistance against Trump’s repressive nationalist agenda is very encouraging. Yet, in order for this spark to become a truly transformative force, we need to take a hard look at how we got here. Trump’s outrageous move barring people from seven majority Muslim nations from entering into the United States sent shockwaves nationwide. The truth is that this didn’t emerge out of nowhere. This controversial list of Muslim countries that Trump is now using in his executive order was created by Obama, who was the commander in chief that had bombed 7 countries and expanded the Bush era ‘War on Terror’.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is now receiving a flood of funding after Trump’s unconstitutional immigrant order, had for a long time been fighting the same battle. This nonpartisan civil rights defender had little support when they fought fiercely against the deportation of over 2 million people under Obama. Also, the ubiquitous illegal drone attacks that are now gaining more scrutiny was Obama’s signature policy. The 8-year-old girl that was just killed under Trump was the sister of a 16-year-old American in Yemen, who was a collateral drone strike victim from Obama’s kill list…”
