UN leaders laugh at Trump – The Washington Post

I’m a little bit disheartened right now, the leading Twitter hashtag is #AmericaLast. I thought the Tangerine nightmare was going to make America great again, instead he’s made us the laughing stock of the world.

If President Obama had had this kind of reception at the UN Republicans would be calling for his head. But in this world wind of Scandal that is the Trump presidency this has not even made a ripple in the pond.

I’ve used this analogy before but if you watch Nickelodeon award shows when famous people get slimed at first there’s a look of shock on their face and eventually there’s resignation. The American people are in the resignation stage of this presidency. And that’s not a good place to be.

Who do you think is laughing the hardest right now? I am sure it’s Putin and his oligarchs who believe that they have one and have put us down in the view of the rest of the world. It’s time that the American people take charge and make sure that we have controls over this president and his terrible terrible positions Visa V the world.

Pence is first VP to speak at anti-gay group’s Values Voter Summit – NBC News

Each time I hear the word impeachment I think about a president Mike Pence and I shudder. Think Trump with none of the baggage and all of the hatred still inside. Now I’m not saying that pent is going to come off scot-free from the special counsel investigation. He was part of the campaign since the convention, and let me think wasn’t Manafort at the convention changing the GOP plank under orders of Putin? After the convention and when 45 was elected they fired unceremonious Lee Governor Chris Christie and put in my pence in charge of the transition period in charge of the transition means in charge of Mike Flynn and we know where Mike Flynn is going to be on December 18th at his sentencing. so, I’m truly afraid of Mike Pence presidency and would rather see this presidency just wither away until 2020.

It’s so important that we not only flip the house but also the senate in November and if we do that then we can keep reins on this President until a new chief executive is voted in and may God help us that it’s not on Mike Pence. Truly a horrible man using the cover of religion to foster hatred against his fellow Americans.

Trump launches first broadside at Mueller after Manafort plea deal – POLITICO

Talk about being conflicted, Trump is the most conflicted individual that ever has been in the White House and I include Andrew Jackson in that comparison. To say that the former FBI director is conflicted and that he has 17 Democrats is a lie. And if Democrats are angry it’s because we have a sham of a man in the White House. This liar in Chief needs to go and all the rain in the world could not stop them from spewing his hatred out. Rudy Giuliani should go out to pasture because he’s doing no good to this president. I never like Rudy Giuliani even when he was called America’s mayor. He was never my mayor.

I don’t think the Paul manafort plea deal is what is stirring the hatred in the White House. I think that it’s the fact that Michael Cohen Trump’s personal attorney is singing Like a Bird to the prosecutors. when Trump says that Paul manafort was a part of his campaign for 49 days it’s a lie but he was only part of the campaign for a little bit over 5 months. And yes he knows about what happened in the infamous Trump Tower meeting. He also until yesterday owned a condo in Trump Tower on the 27th floor. but Michael Cohen on the other hand knows all the dirt and he can put Jared Kushner, DonnyJunior, and Ivanka in jail.

The hatred coming out of this White House is spreading. I just read a story that a a National Guard member helping the victims of the hurricane use the white power salute to a reporter that was covering the disaster. This man in the White House is not just a liar in Chief, he’s the divider in Chief.

“There Won’t Even Be a Paper Trail”: Has Stephen Miller Become a Shadow Master at the State Department? – Vanity Fair

Purposefully separating parents from their children should be against the law. If we are at War mr. Miller would be committing a war crime. He is certainly committed a crime against Society. He needs to pay for this and a nice stint in an orange jumpsuit would be exactly what I have on my mind.

He is using tactics that are so similar to what the Nazis did to do Jews it’s frightening that it’s happening in the United States of America. We don’t separate parents from their children. when he conceived this diabolical plan he made sure there was no paper trail so that these children would never be reunited with their parents and then sent them across the 50 states so they would be literally needles and a haystack. Some of these children are so young that they don’t speak yet and so cannot tell you who their parents are. The ACLU has provided DNA kits but many of the parents are now deported and there is no way of matching them. This is akin to killing these children in the eyes of their parents.

Can you imagine losing your child permanently but knowing that they are alive somewhere and you can never see them again? This is inhuman and reptilian.

At President Trump’s hotel in New York, revenue went up this spring — thanks to a visit from big-spending Saudis – The Washington Post

The emoluments Clause of the Constitution prohibits this. It even says princes of foreign countries in it. How much clearer can it be? Donald Trump Jr andnd his family is in violation of the Constitution of the United States and for that reason alone should be impeached.

the only reason we know anything about this is that Trump does not own the hotel but only runs it, and I understand very badly for investors. In a letter to these investors the general manager wrote jubilantly how although the Saudi Prince did not stay at the hotel the Entourage did and this gave them a boost of 13% in the first quarter, a quarter which has been in the last 3 years a losing quarter for this hotel.

Michael Cohen, once at pinnacle of Trump’s world, now poses threat to it – The Washington Post

In order for Michael Cohen to dodge a bullet he may have to take the proverbial gun and aim it at Trump. He’s facing years in prison if not for the rest of his life on the multitude of charges. All the reporting in the last week since the raid on Michael Collins office makes it clear that the feds had a huge amount of information in order to mount such a spectacular raid on an attorney’s offices. Especially the private attorney to the president of the United States.

In order to garner loyalty from those around you you have to be nice to them. You have to be respectful of them. You can’t treat them like yesterday’s garbage. But Trump doesn’t understand any of this and he is mistreated and belittled Michael Cohen throughout their decade-long relationship. And I think Michael Cohen is not going to take that proverbial bullet for Trump this time.

White House staffer left email passwords on official stationery at bus stop: report – TheHill

First a little bit about what I know regarding Proton Mail. Proton Mail was designed by a group of physicists at the CERN reactor in Switzerland. The reactor was down for routine maintenance and they had a lot of time on their hands and they started thinking about creating a mail system which could not be intercepted by hackers. Unfortunately Proton Mail has one huge problem. You have to input a password in when you send it and the receiver has to put their own password when they want to read it. So what’s happened is that people like me signed up for Proton Mail never used it because they’re not enough people out there who want to do that much work to read an email. So those who use Proton Mail or in two categories. The first category are people who are paranoid about governmental intrusion in their email and the second category are criminals.

That all being said, you can understand why use of Proton Mail in governmental emails should be forbidden. It’s encryption was designed by physicists and if you watch The Big Bang Theory Sheldon has told you how smart physicists are. It’s basically impossible to open unless you’re the NSA and want to spend huge amount of time on trying to open a single email.

This brings me to the second point, when you hire the best people, well the best people in the mind of Donald Trump, this is what happens. This staffer was using proton mail something no staffer in the White House should be using because White House email is already very secure. Perhaps this staffer had his own personal reasons for using it or he was trying to hide something, I won’t speculate on that.

But really, if you’re hiring the best people would they leave their password on White House stationery on a bus bench? And what is this staffer trying to hide?

Bizarre legal brawl intensifies at Trump hotel in Panama – Washington Post

The Trump brand is toxic.

If one were to believe Donald J Trump then one would believe that all of these buildings that have his name on them belong to the Trump organization. In fact that is not true. a vast majority of the buildings that have his name on them are either a licensing agreement or a licensing and management agreement. The Trump organization does not own the buildings. Case in point Panama City Panama. Turns out having the Trump name on a building in South America is not very good for business, who would believe that? I’m sure this is fake news. In any case the manager of the hotel the owner of the hotel employees from the hotel. The hotel owner with the backing of the Panamanian government the Trump name was hurting business and he wanted to sever ties with this company.

Remember, 45 never put his Holdings in a blind Trust as has been the custom of every president. He just said that his genius son Donald jr. would run the company and they made Vape promises not to do business in foreign countries again.

I call BS.

President Trump hits back at Jay-Z over ‘superbug’ comments – BBC NEWS

The rapper Eminem has been attacking 45 since 45 started running for office. 45 remained very quiet about these attacks. Jay-Z talks about Trump and he attacks immediately. Let me think here, what’s the difference between these two rappers? Oh yeah, that’s right, Eminem is white. If anything demonstrates the racism that is inbred in 45 this demonstrates it in an empirical way.

I congratulate both rappers and their denunciation of this President. I congratulate all in the Arts who have made a point of separating this president from all other presidents. He is unlike any other president we’ve had in the modern era. It’s why he has a portrait of Andrew Jackson in the Oval Office. Racists love other racists.

I will only show half of 45’s face, and that’s giving them way too much credit because he’s not half the man any other president we’ve had is.
