Everything Trump says is a lie and degradation of America

Slavery was America's first sin. Trump is America's second.

November 2016 election to December 2017
December 30: Revealed today, top foreign policy advisor for Trump during 2016 George Popadopoulis negotiated with foreign officials, eg diplomats in Saudi Arabia and Australia. By April 2016, Popadopoulos learned of Trump campaign collusion with Russia concerning stolen documents from the Clinton campaign for use by Trump AND paybacks to Russia for their assistance to get Trump elected. In May 2016 and in London, Popadopoulos told Australian diplomat Alexander Downer about the collusion. July 2016, the FBI began its investigation into Trump, though it did not interview Popadopoulos until January 2017. We already know about a dozen Trump campaign officials that negotiated with Russian operatives and spies for the collusion, eg Jared Kushner who wanted to evade US national security agencies and negotiate with Russian spies in its embassy in Washington, DC. Trump says he should get away with his treason because it is not a crime!

December 28: "A storm is gathering, and there is every reason to believe that 2018 will be the most consequential political year of our lives. The reckoning upon us follows a year mercifully drawing to a close this weekend. Over that horrid year, President Trump has questioned the legitimacy of federal judges, used Stalinist barbs to attack the free press and cast contempt on the rule of law, while his campaign manager, his national security adviser and a foreign policy aide have been marched into federal courts. Those anti-democratic instincts were made all the more ominous by his praising of autocrats across the world as they were ruthlessly consolidating power in countries such as Russia, China and the Philippines. It is difficult to pinpoint the nadir for a man who has savaged Mexicans, Muslims and Gold Star mothers while fat-shaming beauty queens and face-shaming female news hosts (disclosure: in the latter example, my own fiancee ). But the low moment in this presidency may have occurred four months ago, when Trump claimed a moral equivalency between neo-Nazis and those standing against them. Or perhaps it was three weeks ago, when the president told Americans to vote for an accused child molester who had called our country the focus of evil in the modern world and once suggested opposition to the constitutional amendments that ended slavery and gave women the right to vote. Borrowing again from Churchill, America’s constitutional norms tremble in the balance as Trump unleashes furious attacks on First Amendment protections, independent counsels and law enforcement officers who refuse to be bullied. While the framers of the Constitution foresaw the possibility of a tyrannical president, they never let their imaginations be darkened by the possibility of a compliant Congress. (from Winston Churchill regarding the creep to WWII) “The malice of the wicked was reinforced by the weakness of the virtuous . . . They lived from hand to mouth and from day to day, and from one election to another . . . The cheers of weak, well-meaning assemblies soon cease to echo, and their votes soon cease to count. Doom marches on.” The storm is gathering. And how we respond in the months ahead may determine our fate for years to come." (Joe Scarborough, former Republican US Representative from Florida and University of Alabama graduate)

History is watching and patriots will record the treason of Trump and his co-conspirators against the US Constitution, American ideals and dreams, democracy, leadership and the American people. Indeed, the US is taking its turn with fascism under Trump. It is remarkable that Trump supporters and enablers are so reckless about how they will be remembered and the disasters left behind for their children.

December 28: Trump ordered the US Postal Service to raise its rates to harm Amazon.com because its owner also owns the Washington Post. Fascist abuse of power.

December 28: Fake news generators. Trump, #1. Russia, #2. Fox News, #3. They are exempted from Trump's new game show – a trophy he will award to whom he thinks is the biggest fake news generator.

December 28: NEWSFLASH. Trump said something true, that the investigation of his treason and crimes makes the US look very bad.

December 28: National Security Director H. R. McMaster said the way Trump handles U.S. foreign policy "has moved a lot of us out of our comfort zone, me included." 

December 28: Trump bragged that 53% of US voters disapprove of his performance.

December 28: Proving again that he is more corrupt than Nixon, Trump boasted that "I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department." He can start or end any DOJ/FBI investigation he wants to. He can obstruct justice and abuse his power all he wants. "There is no collusion, and even if there was, it’s not a crime." Trump also said that the duty of his Attorney General is to protect him (false, the AG's duty is to protect the US Constitution)

Trump shows again and again how puny congressional Republicans are. They endorse Trump's treason. But, attack HIllary Clinton viciously, costing taxpayers $100 million, for sending her daugher an email (which eventually prooved to be true) saying, "Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group."

It is preposterous that violations of the US Constitution are not crimes.

December 27: Trump cannot stop lying. One of today's lies is that he signed more legislation than any other president in history. False. Since Eisenhower, Trump has signed the least. Even George Bush signed more even though faced with the 9/11 tragedy and preparation for war in Afghanistan. Maybe true if Trump means legilation for the wealthy at the expense of the middle class. Trump tells more than 5 lies a day.

December 27: For 2 years, Trump gloated that Michael Flynn was honorable, credible and trustworthy. Now that Flynn is telling the truth to Robert Meuller, Trump says that Flynn is a liar and part of a conspiracy of the FBI and Dept. of Justice to investigate a witch hunt hoax by Republicans about Trump. (so far, the investigation has produced 4 serious indictments scheduled for high profile federal court trials and 2 serious guilty pleas numerous additional indictments and guilty pleas to federal crimes are expected) Of course, all this Trump bluster only compounds his obstruction of justice.

December 27: Trump is doing everything he can to promote white collar criminals like himself. Degrade law enforcement (eg, calling the FBI tainted, corrupt and in tatters), degrade protective rules (eg, removing fines for environmental polluters or nursing homes that neglect or mistreat their clients).

December 27: With Trump's attack on international trade and withdrawal from the TPP, which was designed to constrain China, China's economy will surpass the US by 2032. Trump is determined to weaken the US, shrink US leadership and trash American values in order to promote Russia, China, North Korea, Iran and the Phillipines.

December 27: General Valery Gerasimov, a Russian official, said Trump has trained former ISIS fighters in Syria in an effort to further destabilize the war-torn country.

December 27: Trump and his co-conspirators are doing what they can to discredit the FBI to promote crime in the US and to weaken the US for Russia (and, Trump has done nothing to prevent Russian interference in US elections, futher weakening the US).

December 24: Faced with charges of treason, crime and impeachment, Trump, trying to save himself at all cost, is going to war with Russia. He is sending heavy military weapons and rockets to Ukraine in its war with Russia. Trump is also increasingly attacking China. The US could soon add 2 new wars to Trump's wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and North Korea and against truth, the UN, US national intelligence agencies, the FBI, Robert Mueller, non whites, Muslims, the Palestinian people, Iran, international trade, Mexico, Democrats, the Republican Party, conservatism, the environment, US health care, the US presidency , the US Constitution and the American people. All while promoting crime, racism, sexual assault and disintegration of US institutions and American values.

NATO official: Russian submarine activity highest 'since the cold war'

December 24: The FBI had a strong response to attacks from Trump and his co-conspirators.

"The Real Story of FBI Special Agents: Professionalism and Results The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) is the only professional organization dedicated to representing FBI Special Agents. As the voice of more than 14,000 active and retired FBI Special Agents, FBIAA can state unequivocally that Agents are effectively discharging their solemn duty to protect our country from criminals and terrorists. As Special Agents, we swear an oath of allegiance to the Constitution, and to defend it against all enemies foreign and domestic. This oath is more than words, it is the tie that binds Special Agents together and the foundation for the high standards of professionalism that we must satisfy. The procedures for enforcing these standards are rigorous and effective, and the public can rest assured that the Bureau employs the world's finest law enforcement professionals. Attacks on our character and demeaning comments about the FBI will not deter Agents from continuing to do what we have always done – dedicate our lives to protecting the American people. The true story of the FBI cannot be reduced to partisan talking points. The true story of the FBI is the work done by nearly 13,000 Special Agents and the 22,000 non-Agent FBI professionals spread around the country and the globe in 56 field offices, 355 resident agencies and over 60 legal attache offices connected to U.S. embassies. The true story of the FBI are the partnerships that Special Agents have with State and local law enforcement agencies throughout the country, and the over 50,000 law enforcement executives from the U.S. and over 170 countries who received training at the FBI National Academy. Ultimately, the true story of the FBI is about real results and not sound-bites, and the Office of the Inspector General's 2016 annual audit made it clear how effective the FBI's work can be in just a single year: • Terrorism – 460 disruptions of terrorist plots or organizations • Counterintelligence – 133 counterintelligence cases involving espionage against the U.S. • Cyber – 250 successful disruptions and dismantlements of cyber threats connected to criminal enterprises and national security activities, together with "noteworthy progress towards neutralizing global cybercrime." • Criminal enterprise – 22 high-priority drug trafficking organizations dismantled and 72 organizations disrupted, 118 violent gang criminal enterprises dismantled and 1,345 gang enterprises disrupted, and 342 white-collar criminal enterprises dismantled. Controversies of the day fade, but the sworn duty of Special Agents endures. Special Agents are focused on the Constitution and protecting the public. Their work should be recognized, not denigrated."

Take that scumbag.

"Not surprised Trump fears them, along with the rest of FBI." (CIA Director John Brennan)

"Like being on Nixon’s enemies list, being targeted by this wholly unfit President will soon be a badge of honor." (Representative Jim Hines)

December 23: Trump and his congressional co-conspirators are trying to purge the FBI, an ethical cleansing, of agents that they are afraid will testify about Trump's obstruction of justice and collusion with Putin to illegitimately obtain the office of President of the United States. So far, they have demoted the FBI General Counsel and induced retirement of FBI's Deputy Director. They are claiming that the FBI is a criminal enterprise. They are trying to engineer firing of Robert Meuller or destruction of his investigation.

Trump's denigration of the FBI will reduce credibility of FBI agents and evidence involved in prosecution of federal crimes across the US, thus promoting white collar crime, terrorism, civil rights crimes and all other crimes investigated by the FBI.

December 23: Yet another Trump marketing ploy and get rich quick scheme. Degrading the tradition of presidential coins, Trump is making radical changes. The national motto, E Plurisbus Unum, is replaced by a Trump business trademark, Make America Great Again. The presidential seal is replaced by an eagle bearing Trump’s signature. The 13 arrows representing the original states are gone. It will be bigger than all the rest. Trump’s coins will be given to donors and distributed at campaign rallies, breaking another tradition. 

The commemorative coins stem from the military tradition of exchanging coins covertly through a handshake. Presidents give them to troops, visitors and other members of the public. The coins have become collector’s items, and are sometimes sold for hundreds of dollars. “For the commander in chief to give a political token with a campaign slogan on it to military officers would violate the important principle of separating the military from politics, as well as diminishing the tradition of the coin,” Trevor Potter, a Republican former chairman of the Federal Election Commission said.

December 23: All they have is cynical lip service intertwined with vulgarity, racist/sexists chants/trolls and anti-Americanism. Political 'Christianity' has nothing to to with the words and life of Jesus Christ. Nothing from or about Trump and his political 'Christians' honors Him.

Unlike Trump and his political 'Christians', Jesus never promoted lying, conspiracies, false gods, sociopathy, stealing, cheating, marital affairs and adultery, pedophilia, child abuse and molestation and pornography, taking from the poor to give to the rich, sexual assault, racism, bigotry, crime, hating and banning Muslims, wars against Muslims, degrading non-whites and homosexuals, murder, abandoning the sick and the poor, damaging the lives of our children, damaging the environment, slaughtering animals, imprisoning political adversaries, annihilation of countries, genocide and defiling the rule of law. Should Jesus return, they would kill him.

Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or in members of a targeted group, hoping to make them question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief. Another Trump ploy. Warning signs. They tell blatant lies. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition. They wear you down over time. They know confusion weakens people. They try to align people against you. They tell you everyone else is a liar. They give false hope. They blackmail and extort. All Trump traits.

Life expectancy dropped in the US in 2017.

Autocrat: a ruler with unlimited power, or someone who demands that people completely obey them. The world's most famous and reviled autocrat: Trump.

December 21. The commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Robert Neller, told troops that "there's a war coming" and urged them to be prepared. In a question-and-answer session with the troops, Neller said the U.S. could shift its focus after years of fighting in the Middle East to Eastern Europe, citing Russia's conflicts with Ukraine and Georgia.

December 20: Trump is removing the US from the world except to kill/disparage/ban Muslims and obliterate North Korea. Today, Trump officially threatened– with Mafia-like extortion – to remove the US from the United Nations (founded in 1945), contribute to its funding and contribute aid to UN members. Trump seeks to obliterate countries needing assistance for their and their citizen's survival. (Update: 128 countries voted against Trump; 35 abstained to avoid Trump's wrath; Guatamala, Honduras, Israel, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nairu, Palou and Togo voted with Trump)

Russia, China, North Korea and terrorists are rejoicing.

"Trump Admin threat to retaliate against nations that exercise sovereign right in UN to oppose US position on Jerusalem is beyond outrageous. Shows Trump expects blind loyalty and subservience from everyone—qualities usually found in narcissistic, vengeful autocrats." (CIA Director John Brennan)

Trump sees the US as too weak to maintain leadership in the world. Trump prefers to promote crime in the US, make the US a puppet of Russia, denigrate minorities and institute white supremacy.

December 20: Desperate to deflect attention to his treason, Trump ordered the Justice Department and congressional committees to re-open a settled investigation to re-smear Hillary Clinton. Clinton was one of several members of a nine-agency panel (including the secretaries of the treasury, state, defense, homeland security, commerce and energy; the attorney general; the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; and representatives from two White House offices (the United States Trade Representative and the Office of Science and Technology Policy)) to recommend for Obama's approval of a 2010 sale of a Canadian uranium mining company to a Russian nuclear energy company. Trump and his co-conspirators are trying to blame a legal sale of a Canadian company on Clinton. The company was responsible for no more than 5.9 percent of domestic production, according to a September 2017 report by the U.S. International Trade Commission. Trump and company claim it is 20%.

December 20: Trump assigned his congressional co-conspirators to begin investigations into the FBI and Department of Justice. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), leader of the anti-Americans in congress, has been quietly working without the knowledge of the committee's Democrats to examine what they see as corruption in the nation's highest law enforcement body. Complimenting Trump's congressional campaign, Trump induces his media company, Fox News, to denigrate the FBI, Dept. of Justice and Robert Mueller, claiming that they are engaged in a coup against Trump and calling for their imprisonment.

December 20: Republicans have learned how to manipulate Trump, praise him to the extreme (Speaker Ryan says Trump is exquisite. Leader McConnell says Trump is extraordinary. Senator Hatch says Trump is the best president in US history). Praise is the only thing that motivates Trump more than money. Russia learned it. Saudi Arabia learned it. China learned it. Those that criticize Trump are attacked violently by Trump. So, congressional Republicans prayed to Trump today for his 'leadership' to payoff large corporations and Republican donors with a huge tax cut of millions to hundreds of millions of dollars a year, along with either no or merely – and temporarily – a few hundred dollars tax cut a year for the middle class BUT at the expense of a huge expansion of national debt, $1.5-2 trillion in the next 10 years alone, setting up the need for tax increases in the future. AND, Trump finally got to say, again, that Obama Care is dead. The individual mandate of Obama Care was terminated, setting up for huge increases in the population of uninsured (estimated at 13 million over the next 2 years) and in insurance cost for those keeping their health insurance (Trump's permanent increase in health care costs will vastly outsize the temporary small tax cut for the middle class). For Trump, breaking American health care while further indebting the US to China and other adversaries is a good thing.

Trump and his immediate family will profit hundreds of millions of dollars, at least, from today's passage of 'tax cuts' and huge expansion of US debt and interest payments.

The lesson: the US is for the rich at the expense of the middle class. Sock it to 'em. What's amazing is the block of voters who are suckered in. For longer than anyone has been alive, politicians promise the world but stick with their financial benefactors.

December 20: Trump began a new ground war, this one in Yemen. American troops have been sent in.

December 19: Stand up and speak out on America's core founding values. We are not living in ordinary times, and it's not enough to admire them from afar. What are the values that unite us? You don’t have to look much further than the Preamble to our Constitution, just 52 words, to find them: “We the people of the United States” (we are a democratic republic, not a dictatorship) “in order to form a more perfect union” (we are a work in progress dedicated to a noble pursuit) “establish justice” (we revere justice as the cornerstone of our democracy) “insure domestic tranquility” (we prize unity and peace, not divisiveness and discord), “provide for the common defense” (we should never give any foreign adversary reason to question our solidarity) “promote the general welfare” (we care about one another; compassion and decency matter) “and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” (we have a responsibility to protect not just our own generation, but future ones as well). (Sally Yates, Attorney General fired by Trump for noticing Trump's treason)

December 19: Via his state run media, Fox News, Trump announced that the FBI is plotting to assassinate him. He wants to kill the FBI.

December 19: Like kids in a candy story, Trump's tax plan is about the ultra rich and corporations rolling in profits taking Christmas goodies to be paid for by future generations. Politicians have written into the tax law numerous golden eggs to enrich themselves at the expense of taxpayers (eg, one of the golden eggs will pay Trump $11 million/year). Stealing at our expense. The Republican Party of the past would have gone wild over the massive growth in federal debt to fund millionaires and billionaires.

Whenever a politician says 'believe me,' run.

We already owe China a trillion dollars. We will now owe them billions more.

December 18: Trump delivered what was marketed as a major speech on national security. Almost entirely, it was a carry over of previous administrations. The only thing new was hearing how great he and Putin are. Putin cultivated Trump to be a Russian asset against the US, far more effective than millitary weapons and conventional spies.

December 18: A few months before the election, the FBI notified Trump that Russia was attempting to infiltrate his campaign. Already in heavy collusion, Trump already knew this. And, he never reported to the FBI the array of contacts Trump had with Russian spies, some beginning years earlier on behalf of Trump businesses.

December 18: Trump directed Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller to end his investigation within a few days and send Trump a "letter of exoneration," effectively threatening Mueller with being fired. Trump is also calling DOJ Deputy Director Rod Rosenstein, Mueller's boss, weak and a threat to his presidency. Comey firing all over again, this time on steroids to create a constitutional crisis and obstruction of justice on a grand scale. (Mueller's investigation has already secured significant indictments and guilty pleas)

December 17: Putin called Trump a second time in a few days. This time, Putin thanked the US CIA, who Trump trashes along with all other US national security agencies, especially the FBI. A few days ago, Putin called Trump to schmooze him with complements. Trump bragged in response.

December 17: Trump celebrated the mass murder of children and teachers in Sandy Hook, CT by hosting the director of the National Rifle Association. A mother of one of the killed children said, “Not only did he ignore the 5-year remembrance completely - not even a single tweet - he slapped us all in the face by having none other than NRA President Wayne LaPierre at his White House Christmas party that night. The appalling lack of humanity and decency has not gone unnoticed. While they ignorantly partied and remained uninformed on an issue that kills thousands of Americans every year, I was crying myself to sleep. While they got the chance to kiss their children goodnight, I kissed the urn holding my beautiful boy's ashes.”

December 17: Fearful of prison, via Fox News Trump alleged that the FBI is staging a coup against the government. The President of the United States says that US national security and law enforcement agencies are taking over.

Coup definition: a sudden, violent, and illegal seizure of power from a government. Trump lives in a delusion wrapped in delusion.

December 16: Trump not only wants to ban Muslims, truth and facts. He ordered the Center for Disease Control to ban the use of the words 'evidence based', 'science based', 'vulnerable', 'fetus' and 'diversity".

December 16: TAKE BACK AMERICA we must.

December 15: On behalf of Russia, Trump degrades US national security, democracy and rule of law. Today, he claimed that the FBI is a rigged system. His state media, Fox News, called for the abolition of the FBI. Trump has ordered his intelligence briefers to not present Russia's interference in the 2016 election. And, Trump is determined to end the free press promised in the US Consitution. Consequently, Trump and his corrupt congressional collaborators have done nothing to curtail Putin's campaign to destroy the United States.

Donald Trump Jr. said that the Russia investigation shows there are individuals “at the highest levels of government that don’t want to let America be America.”

December 15: If Trump was not guilty of treason, collusion and other crimes, he would not have fired FBI Director James Comey and attack the FBI, the Dept. of Justice and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

December 15: A historic London neighborhood, Greenwich, has banned Trump.

December 15: Trump would be happier living in Russia. Trump continued today his almost daily attack of the FBI, which Trump says is corrupt, and praise of Vladimir Putin, who Trump says is a better leader than any US president.

A year in the White House and we mostly hear about Trump involves Russia, collusion, sexual assault, support for child molestation, support for neo-Nazis and the KKK, chaos, obstruction of justice, bigotry, Muslim ban, white supremacy, lies, treason, vendettas, indictments, guilty pleas, incompetence, abuse of power, corruption, lawsuits against Trump and his threats to national security.

December 14: Fourteen former national security, intelligence and foreign policy officials filed an amicus brief in a lawsuit against the Trump campaign and GOP operative Roger Stone. The lawsuit was filed in July by three private citizens — Roy Cockrum, Scott Comer, and Eric Schoenberg — whose personal information was stolen in hacks of the Democratic National Committee and published by WikiLeaks. The plaintiffs have argued that the Trump campaign, Stone, "and those they conspired with arranged for the hacked information to be provided to WikiLeaks." Among the former officials who filed the amicus brief on December 8 are John Brennan, a CIA director; James Clapper, a director of national intelligence; and Michael Hayden, a director of the National Security Agency; Avril Haines, a deputy national security adviser; Michael McFaul, a US ambassador to Russia; and Michael Morell, an acting CIA director.

December 14: There is a reason why Putin snickers so much. He knows that he is in Trump's head. Easy to manipulate and scare. And, Trump is terrified knowing that he was elected illegitimately and that his treason looks on track to be prosecuted. Defensively, Trump has ordered his national security briefers to soften or eliminate any discussion of Russia's war against the US. Trump has also ordered congressional Republicans help him discredit US national security agencies, the Dept. of Justice, the FBI, the rule of law and especially Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. Trump's insecurities threaten US national security.

Trump called Putin today to thank him for his help and collaboration in denegrating America.

December 14: Conservative columnist George Will said that Trump will be known as the worst president in US history. "He is an anti-constitutional recidivist, twice removed from Alabama’s highest court for his theocratic insistence that his religious convictions take precedence over U.S. Supreme Court decisions, so he could not have sincerely sworn to 'support and defend the Constitution' and to 'bear true faith and allegiance to the same.' By joining Stephen K. Bannon’s buffoonery on Moore’s behalf, the 45th president planted an exclamation point punctuating a year of hitherto unplumbed presidential depths."

December 14: Putin praised his boy Trump for what he did in 2017, mostly for what Trump did not do, anything to prevent Putin from interfering with US elections again. Putin is helping Trump sell the lie that the investigations into Russian interference in the election are a conspiracy against the 2 amigos, Putin and Trump.

December 14: The mayor of the Israeli town of Nazareth, home of Jesus (of Nasareth), said Trump has taken the "joy" out of Christmas with his decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Mayor Ali Salam says the town has canceled the events it had planned for the holiday. The guardian of the most sacred site in Christianity, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, has refused to meet US Vice President Mike Pence when he visits Jerusalem. "I absolutely refuse to officially welcome the American Vice President Mr. Mike Pence at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and I will not be physically in church during his visit. This is an expression of my condemnation of President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel." (The Church of the Holy Sepulchre contains the two holiest sites in Christianity, the place Jesus Christ was crucified and the empty tomb where he is said to have been buried and resurrected.)

December 13: Omarosa (Omarosé Onée Manigault-Newman) has been a Trump sidekick for 14 years in both of his reality TV shows, The Apprentice and The White House Mess. Omarosa disagreed with Trump's support of the child molester Roy Moore. So, Trump said, You're Fired. When she balked, Trump, cowering in his White House bedroom, had Omarosa dragged and thrown out of the White House as she screamed vulgarities. "I have seen things that made me uncomfortable, that have upset me, that have affected me deeply and emotionally, that has affected my community and my people. And when I can tell my story, it is a profound story that I know the world will want to hear," Amarosa responded.

Another Trump side kick, and a Trump conduit to Russian spies, Roger Stone is working on a book, titled "The Unmaking of Trump," about Trump’s removal from office. "It’s painfully obvious Mueller will bring charges. Nikki Haley stuck a knife in his back," Stone said, adding that he thinks most of Trump’s Cabinet would vote to remove him from office under the 25th Amendment. "I just don’t think Trump is being told the truth about how bad things are."

Trump is systematically removing the US from leadership and morality and stunting the success of every American.

December 12: Trump brags loudly how great the Wharton School of Business is...because he went there. Well, the school published its analysis of Trump's plan to ruin the economy and lives of every American. According to Wharton, Trump's tax plan will cost taxpayers an additional $2 trillion to the nation's debt, that's $2,000 billlion.

December 12: Trump lost big time in Alabama. His fellow sexual pervert and violator of the Constitution lost the election for Senator. Trump's attacks against women, African Americans and American values backfired.

December 12: USA Today blasts Trump. "A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush. Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed. It should surprise no one how low he went with Gillibrand. When accused during the campaign of sexually harassing or molesting women in the past, Trump’s response was to belittle the looks of his accusers. Last October, Trump suggested that he never would have groped Jessica Leeds on an airplane decades ago: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” Trump mocked another accuser, former People reporter Natasha Stoynoff, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.” Other celebrities and politicians have denied accusations, but none has stooped as low as suggesting that their accusers weren’t attractive enough to be honored with their gropes. If recent history is any guide, the unique awfulness of the Trump era in U.S. politics is only going to get worse. Trump’s utter lack of morality, ethics and simple humanity has been underscored during his 11 months in office. Not to mention calling white supremacists "very fine people," pardoning a lawless sheriff, firing a respected FBI director, and pushing the Justice Department to investigate his political foes. The nation doesn’t seek nor expect perfect presidents, and some have certainly been deeply flawed. But a president who shows such disrespect for the truth, for ethics, for the basic duties of the job and for decency toward others fails at the very essence of what has always made America great."

December 12: Trump says that the FBI is corrupt and called for a Special Prosecutor to send FBI agents to jail.

December 12: Former NBA star Dennis Rodman said he thinks Trump and Kim Jong Un are "pretty much the same people."

December 12: Poll: 'Idiot' most common word used to describe Trump.

December 12: Politifact on named the claim that Russia's election hacking is a "made-up story" as its 2017 “Lie of the Year.”

December 12: Yesterday, Senator Kirsten Gillabrand, as she did for Senator Al Franken, called for Trump to resign because of his boasts of sexual assault and harassment and 19 women that reported being Trump targets. Trump responded today, calling Gillabrand a flunky whore, "slut shaming," according to Senator Elizabeth Warren. "Begging...she would do anything. USED!" (she would have sex with him, except for Trump, she was "used") for his favor according to Trump. This is the kind of message the bogus President of the United States is sending to children and women around the world. Yet another reprehensible chapter of Trump's disgusting attacks, official statements of the White House.

Gillibrand's response. "You cannot silence me or the millions of women who have gotten off the sidelines to speak out about the unfitness and shame you have brought to the Oval Office." What Trump said "was a sexist smear."

Trump claims that he never met any of the 19 women and somehow will produce eye witnesses that he did not sexually assault or harass them. Update. Trump provided 3 fake witnesses, each lying about their eyewitness accounts because they were no where near where or when Trump assaulted/harassed women. Update: pictures and videos show hugging victims.

Trump is furious with U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley for saying that the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct "should be heard. And I think we heard from them before the election. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up."

Trump has transformed the Republican Party into supporters of sexual assault, treason and bigotry.

Trump told top aides to think of each presidential day as an episode in a television show in which he vanquishes rivals. He watches TV 4-8 hours a day and plays golf 2 days a week. The rest of the time, he dreams up controversy that will keep in in the news so he can see watch the TV coverage.

"Before a (beauty pageant) show, I’ll go backstage and everyone’s getting dressed, and everything else, and you know, no men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it. You know, I’m inspecting because I want to make sure that everything is good. You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?' And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that." (Donald Trump) When women say Trump did this, Trump calls them liars and claims he will sue them.

Trump embraces Roy Moore for 4 reasons. 1) He also is a sexual predator. 2) He also is a bigot, longing for a country without diversity, without African Americans, without Latinos and without LGBT citizens. 3) He also is a follower of Vladimir Putin. 4) He also wants most of the US Constitution banned. In particular, both despise the First Amendment (right of free speech and free press), the Thirteenth Amendment (abolished slavery), the Fifteenth Amendment prohibited the denial of the right to vote based on race, color or previous condition of servitude), the Nineteenth Amendment (prohibited the denial of the right to vote based on sex).

Trump knows his guilt. As the indictments and plea bargains accumulate, he and his media realize that they must divert and attack.

All anyone needs consider is that Trump, his media and his congressional stooges would explode if Trump's name was replaced with Clinton or Obama in the press accounts, court document and FBI investigations involving Trump. They would lock them up. The problem, however, is that the treason, crimes and undermining America are Trump's. Terrified, they circle the Trump wagon. Instead, they should consider that someday the Trump scam will end and history will be written about their collaborations against the Constitution and America's ideals.

July 2017, Trump rejected Russia's offer to NOT interfere with US elections. He knows he cannot get elected without their help.

December 8: Thoroughly anti-American, Trump fired up his audience claiming that the American political system is rigged and sick. Trump prefers the Russian system where political foes and members of the press are killed or imprisoned.

Putin is elated with his puppet, Trump, who has convinced a third of Americans to prefer Russian values over American values and to dismiss the US Constitution and USA democracy.

December 8: "I love You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody okay?’” he continued. “And you see these incredible looking women, and so, I sort of get away with things like that.," Trump often said (Wikileaks an arm of Vladimir Putin effort to elect Trump). Putin hacked into the Democrat National Committee and Clinton Campaign Manager John Podesta's email account, steeling tens of thousands of emails on behalf of Putin's business partner Trump. Revealed today, Wikileaks/Russia gave Trump and several other conspirators in the Trump campaign private, encrypted, early access to these emails September 4, 2016. Collusion revealed again.

Congressional Republicans use to applaud the integrity, military record and government service of Robert Mueller. However, now that virtually everyone recognizes Trump's collaboration with Putin to win the election and long list of financial crimes, congressional Republicans are attacking Mueller, attempting to discredit his career and Trump investigation which has already produced profound indictments and convictions. Treason is a contagious disease.

Trump is eager to attack Senator Al Franken for sexual misbehavior but promotes his own serial sexual assault and the sexual molestation/assault and attempted rape record of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore.

December 6: Trump prohibited his son from truthfully answering questions at a congressional hearing, invoking attorney-client privilege. Neither Trump or his son is an attorney.

Trump hates Muslims, Latinos and African Americans. They are his go-to opportunistic targets to keep his bigoted supporters.

December 6: Trump wants homeless veterans to stay on the streets. He terminated the VA program to help them with housing.

December 6: US banks refusing to lend more money to Trump because of his track record to refuse payback, Trump's found a bank of last resort: Deutsche Bank in Germany, a well-known conduit for Russian money laundering (Deutsche Bank has paid the state of NY hundreds of millions of dollars in fines for this; the federal case that would have fined the bank billions of dollars, was killed by Trump). One of Putin's banks, VEB, purchased at least some of the money loaned to Trump in order to have leverage over Trump, explaining why, in addition to collusion to win the election, Trump is so friendly to Putin.

December 6: Eleven minutes after he was sworn in and during his inauguration speech, Trump greenlighted Flynn to text a business associate from the inaugural stage at the Capitol that a Middle East nuclear power project involving Russian state interests was 'good to go' upon culmination of Trump's promise to Putin to drop economic sanctions against Russia. Quid pro quo crime.

December 6: By now, any sentient being who is capable of rational thought about the U.S. president (a category that admittedly excludes his more fervent fans) must grasp the likelihood that there was a quid pro quo between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin: Russian President Vladimir Putin would help Donald Trump win the U.S. presidential election, and in return Trump would lift sanctions on Russia. The fact that Trump hasn’t made good on his end of the presumed bargain shouldn’t be any surprise: A long line of business partners and wives have discovered how worthless his commitments are. In fairness, however, Trump’s failure to follow through in this instance wasn’t necessarily because he didn’t want to; it was because the Russian meddling became public and therefore made it politically impossible for Trump to help out his Russian pal even if he had been inclined do so. (Max Boot, born in Moscow)

December 6: Trump, breaking decades of US leadership and global efforts for Mideast peace, named Jerusalem capital of Israel to derail the peace process and produce unrest and violence in the Mideast and Europe. Billions of people around the world now see the United States diminished, a promoter of violence and a fascist state. Trump is determined to ruin America and associate the US with turmoil and violence. A dozen Muslim countries, England, France, Germany and many more oppose Trump. The US government has warned its employees around the world that starting today that their lives are in danger from Trump's proclamation. The Pentagon is sending soldiers to Israel in anticipation of violence. Americans are now at greater risk while Trump is pleases with his global condemnation.

Update: December 7, a new war is breaking out in Israel and residents are burning Trump posters. Trump asked Israel to restrain response to Trump-induced violence. He wants the Mideast to burn.

During his speech, Trump again slurred his speech AGAIN, unable to articulate sentences and words. Trump has a range of impairments while he commands the US nuclear arsenal and instigates wars in North Korea and Muslim countries.

December 6: Trump's serial sexual assaults inspired the choice for Time's Person of the Year. The "The Silence Breakers" who sparked the "#MeToo" movement, victims of sexual assault and harassment.

December 5: Trump creating spy network to combat who he thinks are his enemies. Trump's spy network plan was developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince – who is also the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos – as well as retired CIA officer John Maguire and Oliver North, who was heavily involved in the Iran-Contra scandal and was brought on board to “sell the effort.” The spies would be “off the books,” sidestepping official U.S. intelligence agencies and would report directly to CIA Director Mike Pompeo, according to current and former U.S. intelligence officials. A former senior U.S. intelligence official with knowledge of the proposals told the Intercept that Pompeo doesn’t trust the “CIA bureaucracy,” so a global spy network is necessary to collect intelligence that is not shared with the intelligence community.

December 5: "I damn sure believe and have done my part to ensure that men who hurt little girls should go to jail, and not the United States Senate." (Alabama Senate Democrat candidate, Doug Jones) Trump and most Republicans disagree. For them, a child molester (Republican candidate Roy Moore) will make the Senate a better place.

December 5: Trump is already crafting his defense against impeachment, test marketing in search of something that will work. He first tried lies. Then he tried undermining national security agencies and agents. Then he tried firing DOJ leadership (Sally Yates and James Comey). Then he tried attacks against investigators. Then he tried Nixonism, claiming that Trump is the law and is not subject to the law; he cannot be found to commit obstruction of justice. His vile base thrives on Trump's treason and immorality.

Trump has replaced patriotism with affirmation of lies, sexual assault, child molestation, white supremacy, the KKK, racism and bigotry. Trump is the biggest threat to America since the Civil War.

December 5: A Trump campaign aide reported that Karen Pence, the vice president's wife, was "disgusted" with Trump. “She finds him reprehensible—just totally vile."

December 4: Even after indictment and stringent bale conditions, Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort worked with a Russian spy based in Russia.

December 4: Trump’s Pattern: Discredit Everyone Else. This weekend, President Trump blasted the F.B.I. on Twitter as a biased institution whose “reputation is in Tatters - worst in History!” (The capitalization choices are his.) He is casting the men and women of the Federal Bureau of Investigation as unreliable, if not worse, just as he has previously done with C.I.A. agents, federal judges, scientists, Congressional Budget Office analysts and journalists, among others. The president wants to undercut just about anybody who is an independent source of information. (New York Times)

December 4: About his campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump said "I’ve got a crook running my campaign."

December 4:Trump, a self-admitted serial sexual assaulter, again endorsed a child mollester and sexual assaulter for the US Senate (Roy Moore). He needs like-minded deviates in the Senate.

December 4: Trump attacked the FBI again, claiming it was unfair for the felon Michael Flynn was unfairly charged with a crime.

December 4: Now that Trump has admitted obstruction of justice, he announced that he is ABOVE THE LAW. Trump ordered his lawyer to say, "The President cannot obstruct justice because he is the chief law enforcement officer under [the Constitution's Article II] and has every right to express his view of any case."

Also wrongly, Nixon thought that the President cannot break the law. "When the President does it, it's not illegal." Nixon was removed from office for this illegal view.

No court would agree with Trump, or Nixon. Law enforcement officers are not immune from prosecution.

Republican strategist Alex Castellanos said he believes "we're closer to impeachment now than we think."

Trump has one accomplishment. His history of sexually assaulting women provided a tipping point. Perpetrators are being chastised, many in business being fired and many in politics being outed and pressed to resign. Hopefully the Secret Service will constrain Trump's urges.

December 3: Trump attacked James Comey and the FBI again in his relentless campaign to obstruct justice. Again, the FBI assured that Trump is lying. FBI leaders expressed their support of Comey. "Every day, FBI Special Agents put their lives on the line to protect the American public from national security and criminal threats. Agents perform these duties with unwavering integrity and professionalism and a focus on complying with the law and the Constitution. This is why the FBI continues to be the premier law enforcement agency in the world. FBI Agents are dedicated to their mission; suggesting otherwise is simply false," said the head of the FBI Agents Association, Thomas O’Connor. "I want the American people to know this truth: The FBI is honest. The FBI is strong. And the FBI is, and always will be, independent," said James Comey. "The only thing in tatters is the President’s respect for the rule of law. The dedicated men and women of the FBI deserve better," said Sally Yates, the DOJ Director that Trump fired for telling him that Michael Flynn lied to the FBI posed a threat to US national security. "The FBI’s reputation is not in “tatters”. It’s composed of the same dedicated men and women who have always worked there and who do a great, apolitical job. You’ll find integrity and honesty at FBI headquarters and not at 1600 Penn Ave right now," said DOJ Director Eric Holder.

Trump prefers criminals, Russia and hate mongering.

December 3: Consciousness of guilt. Trump woke up in a cold sweat, tweeting "I never asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn." Problem is, however, that he said he did in a TV interview months ago. Everyone knows that he did. Trump claims Comey is a liar. Everyone knows that he isn't.

Maybe Trump is being technical. He didn't ask Comey, he told him.

December 2: Trump's former deputy national security adviser K.T. McFarland told a friend in an email when she was on Trump's transition team that Russia "threw" the U.S. election to Trump. McFarland was informed by Flynn of his collusions with Russian spies for Trump according to Flynn's guilty plea yesterday.

December 2: Trump announced that he knew since January that Michael Flynn, White House National Security Advisor, was a felon for lying to the FBI for his collusions with Russia. "I had to fire General Flynn because he lied to the Vice President and the FBI. He has pled guilty to those lies." (no lawyer would use the term 'pled', the proper term is 'pleaded') Trump's lawyer told the Washington Post December 3 that Trump knew in January Flynn lied to the FBI, weeks before Trump fired Flynn (only because the press found out).

Thus, Trump admitted to the crime of obstruction of justice. Trump had already admitted obstruction of justice before, firing FBI Director James Comey for not terminating the investigation of Michael Flynn, a self-admitted felon for lying to the FBI. Now, Trump says that he fired Comey for investigating a crime that Trump knew that Flynn committed.

James Comey's response to Trump's admission: “To paraphrase the Buddha — Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun; the moon; and the truth.”

Update Dec. 3: Realizing his admission of his criminal act to obstruct justice, the story now is that he gave his lawyer the user name and password to Trump's Twitter account (false) so that his lawyer could impersonate Trump and post his first and last tweet to say that he authored Trump's admission of a crime. Even if he did, it still says that Trump obstructed justice, incriminating Trump in a criminal act and thereby subjecting himself to disbarment. Once again, Trump lies to cover up the truth. More obstruction of justice.

December 2: Built by 6,000 lobbyists, inspired by his hate for Obama, read by no one and adding $1.4 trillion of debt (that's 1,400 billion or 1,400,000 million) to reward the already wealthy and Trump's own riches, Trump got his tax plan through the Senate. And, to substantially increase the cost of health insurance while decrease its value and bring back the lack of health care insurance to tens of millions. Sock it to the middle class big time.

****************************************************************
December 1, 2017: Trump's right hand man, Michael Flynn, admitted in federal court today that he is a felon for acts that Trump tried, but failed, to terminate FBI investigation and fired FBI Director James Comey to end FBI's investigation. Flynn also told the court that he has agreed to cooperate with the Special Prosecutor's investigation into Trump, his family, his campaign staff and his White House staff of crimes and collusion with Russia to win the election. And, Flynn told the court that Trump ordered him to make contact with Russian spies to win the election. And, Flynn told the court that he coordinated with many in the campaign transition team that he coordinated with this team his Russian negotiations and he told many in the campaign transition team that he consummated his Russian negotiations. Today is a big day in TrumpGate.

Notable mentions in Flynn's guilty plea. Flynn agreed to participate in covert law enforcement activities and to turn over all evidence about and all persons involved with crimes (refers to wearing a concealed wire or recording telephone conversations with other suspects). Flynn's lies impeded a criminal investigation. A senior member of Trump's transition team directed Flynn to contact Russian spies and debriefed Flynn after his contacts with Russian spies (this was Jared Kushner). Kushner also directed Flynn to to influence governments around the world to delay a UN vote or defeat the UN resolution regarding Israeli settlements (Flynn contacted the Russian Ambassador about the pending vote. Flynn informed the Russian Ambassador about Trump's opposition to the resolution, and requested that Russia vote against or delay the resolution (interfering with US international affairs was illegal.). Flynn spoke with senior members of the Presidential Transition Team, including while they were with Trump in Mar-a-Lago, about his conversations with the lead Russian spy in the US regarding the U.S. Sanctions and Russia's decision not to escalate the situation. Flynn was involved in serious criminal conspiracy with Turkey. And, Flynn was not alone. These notables are not allegations, they are admitted by Flynn in writing.

Trump's diversions that all of this is a witch hunt, a hoax, a Democrat conspiracy and fake news are now proven false. It was a criminal conspiracy of Trump of his campaign and White House senior staffs.

It appears that Jared Kushner will be indicted or also plead guilty.

Trump's response to all of this today....it was Obama's fault.

Comey's response to all of this today..."'But let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream,' Amos 5:24," Comey wrote, referring to the Bible's book of Amos.
****************************************************************

December 1: Trump's National Security Advisor and famous for leading chants to "lock her up" regarding Hillary Clinton, Michael Flynn pleaded guilty for lying to the FBI. Flynn told the FBI that he did not have contact with the leading Russian spy in the US. A lie. He did. He colluded with Russia for Trump.

From the formal felony charge: "defendant Michael T. Flynn did willfully and knowingly make materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements and representations" (regarding negotiating with Russian spies in favor of Trump, about which Trump told the FBI and Congressional Republicans to STOP investigating and fired FBI Director James Comey) Potential for 10 year prison term.

ALTHOUGH WARNED ABOUT FLYNN BY PRESIDENT OBAMA AND DOJ DIRECTOR SALLY YATES, TRUMP AND HIS CO-CONSPIRATORS INSIST THAT WHAT FLYNN PLEADED GUILTY FOR IS A HOAX!

It is widely expected that Flynn is cooperating with the Special Prosecutor in investigation of Trump and other Trump campaign and White House officials.

Previously, Trump Campaign Manager and associate (Paul Manafort and Rick Gates) were indicted. Trump senior advisor George Papadopoulos pleaded guity.

November 30: Trump's crew has led to White House infestated with cockroaches, ants and mice.

November 30: Trump plans to oust Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo replacing him and nominating Sen. Tom Cotton to be CIA Director.

Trump is making the face of America and western democracy fascism.

"I think Islam hates us." (Donald J. Trump) FALSE.

November 30: After his latest spasm of deranged tweets, only those completely under his spell can deny what growing numbers of Americans have long suspected: The President of the United States is profoundly unstable. He is mad. He is, by any honest layman’s definition, mentally unwell and viciously lashing out. By engaging in the little Islamophobia-fest, Trump amplified the handiwork of a leader of Britain First, a fringe, far-right political movement that is the rough equivalent of America’s white nationalist alt-right. (New York Daily News)

Most in the White House, Congress and the public agree.

"There is nothing in the world like first-rate pussy."(Donald J. Trump)

What Trump is doing to the US is disgusting.

November 29: Overwhelmed by sex and taxes, the media is overlooking the biggest news of the day. Trump sent the US UN Ambassor to the UN to threaten the world with WW III. Trump is planning to blockade North Korea from receiving oil from China. Such a blockade would certainly inflame both North Kroea and its ally China, and probably irritate Russia as well.

November 29: Trump gratified KKK Grand Wizard David Duke by distributing to 44 million Americans falsified and egregious anti-Muslim videos that originated in England. England's Prime Minister condemned Trump. In contrast, Trump enjoys sowing division, fear and insecurity and inciting terrorists to attack westerners. Hate is Trump's game.

"It is deeply disturbing that the President of the United States has chosen to amplify the voice of far-right extremists. Britain First seeks to divide communities and intimidate minorities, especially our Muslim friends and neighbours. Britain First does not share our values of tolerance and solidarity. God calls us as Christians to love our neighbour and seek the flourishing of all in our communities, societies and nations. I join the urgent call of faith groups and others for President Trump not just to remove these tweets, but to make clear his opposition to racism and hatred in all forms." (The Archbishop of Canterbury)

"In retweeting Jayda Fransen’s posts, it is absolutely clear to me that President Trump is supporting and condoning fascism and far-right activity. This activity has frequently taken the form of violence on our streets. Ms Fransen herself has a long history of racism and Islamophobia, some of it criminal. Many of the people you have rightly banned from entering the UK were guilty of less than this." (Chris Bryant, a former Foreign Office minister, said the prime minister should issue a prohibition order against the president like those that apply to other far-right figures from the US)

"This is the president of the United States sharing, with millions, inflammatory and divisive content, deliberately posted to sow hatred and division by… a convicted criminal who is facing further charges, who represents a vile fascist organization seeking to spread hatred and violence in person and online. By sharing it, he is either a racist, incompetent or unthinking, or all three." (Stephen Doughty, Labour lawmaker)

"Trump should be arrested for inciting racial hatred if (Prime Minister) May allows him to set foot on UK soil." (Labour MP Paul Flynn)

November 29: Trump celebrated the firing of Matt Lauer from NBC for behavior that Trump bragged he did himself.

Trump lies: 1,700 in first 300 days. Slurs, insults and false conspiracy theories abound as well. America degradation continues.

Trump's assault on truth marches on. Now, Trump claims that his statements preserved on video tape regarding his sereal sexual assaults, about which he acknowledged a year ago, were fake, the boasts were not his voice. And, he is reviving his birther conspiracy, insisting that Obama was not born in the US.

November 27: To showoff the depths of his racism and hate for non-whites, Trump, an immigrant compared to them, summoned to the White House Navajo Native American leaders, and important WW II veterans, to spew a racial slur toward Senator Elizabeth Warren, calling her 'Pocahontas'. And he did this staging directly in front of a painting of Andrew Jackson, an avowed killer of thousands of Native Americans who enacted the Indian Removal Act. Trump has long despised Native Americans, eg Trump secretly paid for more than $1 million in ads that portrayed members of a tribe in Upstate New York as cocaine traffickers and career criminals. Trump links his racism to Jackson's genocide, and gets millions of his supporters to cheer.

Trump's 2017 accomplishments. The worst role model in the world for our children. A showcase of sociopathy. Indictments and criminal guilty plea of top staff. Serious investigations into his misconduct by 4 congressional committees and the Dept. of Justice. Reducing prestige of the presidency and America's leadership in the world. Degrading US national security agencies. Greenlighting and enhancing Russian interference in US elections, white supremacy, neo-Nazis, violence against journalists and sexual assault. Intensifying racism. Elevating North Korea and Russia. Banning Muslims. Spread of ISIS. Devastating the Dept. of State. Increasing bullying, cyber crimes and violent crimes. Numerous lawsuits against his actions. Attacking Gold Star families and African Americans. Becoming the world's second largest creator of fake news (the largest is Trump's benefactor, Russia). Wasting millions of public dollars on personal expenses. Daily senseless tweet storms. Chaos and turmoil. Intensification of moral tribalism. Taking about a third of his time off for marketing trips to his businesses. Playing lots of golf.

However, although dedicated to ruin the economy, so far, Trump has not altered Obama's substantial recovery of a collapsed economy. Stock market and corporate growth continue.

"I don’t agree with the way he’s conducting his presidency. He’s an individual that unfortunately is not anchored by a set of principles. I don’t think he has the fundamental underpinnings of principles and beliefs." (Senator John McCain)

On average, working hard to be the biggest show on earth, Trump lies 5½ times a day. Being outrageous, vindictive, a liar, a racist, a white supremacist, a sexual assaulter, a criminal, treasonous, opulent, assault on truth, his riveting reality TV shenanigans, obsession with TV ratings, and his attacks against the US, the Constitution, government, the media, national security, African Americans and Latinos are the characteristics of commanding attention. Bogus conspiracy theories are reliable diversions too.

November 25: Trump has fired most of the State department's African-American and Latino diplomats.

November 25: It's troll the bully clown day. After Trump said that he refuses to be named Time Magazine person of the year, a prize he has coveted for decades, actors, comedians, politicians and citizens announced that they refuse the honor too. Time Magazine called Trump’s claim of being named “total BS,” saying there was “not a speck of truth” to his comments. There never is.

November 25: Trump is angry at his daughter for saying about the pedophile Roy Moore that there is "a special place in hell for people who prey on children." Trump realizes that his has one of those special places.

November 25: Trump took 12 years to claim that his infamous 2005 Hollywood Access video, the one where he brags of grabbing women's genitals, is fake. Anything true is fake for Trump.

November 24: The legal team representing Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, ended an agreement to share information about the ongoing Russia probe with the White House, a sign that Flynn is possibly looking to cooperate with investigators.

November 23: Israeli intelligence officials were warned in January that American intelligence agencies believed Russia had “leverages of pressure” over Trump. The US warned Israel to “be careful” once Trump was inaugurated, adding that it was possible sensitive information shared with the White House and the National Security Council could be leaked to Russians. A few months later, Trump made headlines when he revealed highly classified intelligence information during a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak. It was later reported that the information related to Israeli intelligence about a terror plot involving ISIS. (The Hill)

November 22: Nixon paid witnesses hush money to obstruct justice, to commit perjury, to hide evidence and to mislead investigators. Today, Trump announced hush money for his staff's legal expenses unless they have been already indicted or targeted by the FBI.

November 22: Trump woke up today in his posh country club in Palm Beach to pound his chest and growl sonic booms out the window wearing his gold boxer shorts and hair net. His target today was an American citizen and father of a basketball player who refuses to kneel and kiss Trump's massive gold ring. "It was me" and only me Trump proclaimed, for allegedly single handedly forcing China to let 3 US basketball out of prison, held there without fair trial. A few days ago he yelled that he should have left the three US citizens rot in a China prison. This is how far the US presidency has been degraded by Trump.

Trump will likely pardon any pedophile or sexual assaulter that will assist his denigrative schemes.

November 21: Trump is always looking for profit, eg selling his wine brand in a taxpayer-funded national park.

November 21: For 90 minutes, Trump spoke with Vladimir Putin, the only person in the world Trump has not attacked.

Trump is a non-stop dog whistle that excites sexual predators, white supremacists and those ready to delete American values.

November 21: Trump, a sexual predator himself, prefers Roy Moore for election to the Senate. Trump sees himself in the pedophile Roy Moore (Trump has even more women reporting sexual assault against him than Roy Moore does). For Trump, sexual predators and molesters of young girls should win high office. As President, Trump made it policy for the executive branch of government to promote sexual assault. The Republican Party is being rebranded as the party of sexual predators.

James Comey's response: "The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of myself." (Jane Addams, 1860-1935)

Like Trump's career of sexual assault, the news is filled with politicians revealed as serial sexual harassers. All the product of arrogant power.

November 20: Trump hates CNN and targeted CNN for violent attacks and calls obliterate. So, Trump ordered his DOJ to act. Today, it did, filing litigation against the merger of ATT and CNN parent Time Warner. Illegal of course and one more brick in the wall of Trump's banana republic.

November 19: “If Jesus Christ gets down off the cross and told me Trump is with Russia, I would tell him, 'Hold on a second. I need to check with the president if it's true,’” said Mark Lee.

Trump has turned the executive branch of government into an attack machine against Gold Star families, football players, congressional Republicans, the Republican party, national intelligence agencies, the judiciary, the environment, health care, morals, American values, the press, the US Constitution, Trump's rejected staff, Muslims, children, the economy, education, truth, justice, Mitch McConnell, Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, John McCain, Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and James Comey. All to degrade America, to promote white supremacy, to defend Russia, bigotry and sexual assault, and to enhance Trump's financial status and super-sized dark ego.

Recurring themes with Trump: racism, white supremacist, collusion, dictator, anti-American, sexual assault, liar, business cheat, incompetent, vindictive, crybaby, bully, hate monger, chaos, farce, bigot, impeachment, greed, sociopath....a long list counter to America and American values.

November 18: Putin sending a spy to see Trump in Florida. A prominent Russian oligarch with ties to President Vladimir Putin has docked his 500-foot yacht, which is estimated to be worth between $400 and $500 million,in the Port of Palm Beach just days before Trump makes his way to Mar-a-Lago. When the Art of the Deal meets the KGB, the KGB will always win.

November 18: No responsible citizen trusts Trump. General John Hyten, commander of US Strategic Command and between Trump and the nuclear 'button', would push back against an order from Trump for a nuclear strike if it were "illegal."

Trump is a PINO, President In Name Only. Certainly, most people in the US and around the world know that Trump is no one look up to.

November 18: Trump is obsessed with Mrs. Hillary Clinton a year after the election. He can't stop thinking about her, especially as he tosses and turns in bed. Today, again, he got out of bed to tweet about Hillary. He wants her to run for President again. No wonder Trump's wife will not hold his hand.

Maybe Trump is overly consumed by all the news, and he longs for his obsession with sexual assault.

"I do not recall." The choreographed response of Trump, Sessions, Kushner etc when they intend to hide their Russia collusion.

"If you want truth to go round the world you must hire an express train to pull it; but if you want a lie to go round the world, it will fly; it is light as a feather and a breath will carry it." Rev. Charles Haddon Spurgeon (1855).

November 17: Trump connections with Russia abound. For example, investors and customers of the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower in Panama City have deep ties to Russian mafia, organized crime and drug trafficking.

November 17: Russian ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak said he couldn’t name all of the officials connected to President Trump that he’s spoken with or met during the campaign because “the list is so long, I'm not going to be able to go through it in 20 minutes.” Vitaly Bespalov, 26, admitted that the Internet Research Agency (IRA) in St. Petersburg, Russia, employed hundreds of workers around the clock to produce inflammatory political propaganda during the time of the election. The bloggers and former journalists churned out "lies ... a merry-go-round of lies." Trump had extensive contact with Russian spies during the campaign but had little contact with any other government, including the US government, during the campaign or post election.

Trump might consider changing his name to Donald J. Tumpov.

November: The Pentagon tweeted that Trump should resign.

November 16: Trump attacked Senator Al Franken for kissing a fellow entertainer but encouraged Senate candidate Roy Moore for mollesting a 14 year old girl, attempting rape of a 16 year old girl and prowling high schools and malls for teenage girls.

Trump bragged about forcibly kissing and sexually assaulting women (eg, forcibly grabbing their genitals), and discussed on radio his desire to date his daughter. Trump also frequently walked into dressing rooms at beauty pageants to goggle the naked contestants. Nine women have active complaints against Trump. But, Trumpenstein has the audacity to call Franken Frankenstein.

November 16: Trump loves the tax cuts passed by the House today. He will make over $1 billion (aka, over $1,000 million) funded by millions of taxpayers.

November 16: It is amazing how the sexual assaults of Roy Moore have so stifled Trump. Must be his own prolific history of sexual assault.

November 15: Like his effort to ruin the future of democracy Trump seeks to ruin the future of the African elephant, greenlighting illegal killing and import of elephant heads as trophies to the US. Last month, Trump approved importing lion head trophies into the US.

November 15: Trump returned from Asia claiming that he was subjected to torture in the Philipines. He moaned that he "was forced to watch CNN." Secret Service and the Department of Defense could not protect him. Sad.

November 14: Trump teaches Russia to use more fake news. Russia published a phone 'proving' that the US is an ally of ISIS. One litte problem: the photo is lifted from a video game on an iPhone, AC-130 Gunship Simulator: Special Ops Squadron.

Trump is transforming the US to the largest banana republic in history and one with a sociopath in charge of nuclear weapons. Trump has turned Republicans into Banana Republicans.

Trump, Putin and their tool Wikileaks are united in their aim to ruin US institutions of democracy. Before Trump's election campaign, it was known that Wikileaks was a tool for Putin. For example, the subject of one Wikileaks attack against the US is Eward Snowden, who stole substantial US national intelligence assets and now lives in Russia. During Trump's campaign, it was known that Putin deployed Wikileaks as part of his election interference for Trump and against Clinton. It was also known that top Trump campaign officials were coordinating with Wikileaks and Russia to interfere with the election....clear treasonous collusion. Follow the lies, follow the money.

"I love Wikileaks." (Trump)

November 13: Lie, rationalize, lie again. The Trump cycle. Over and over, Trump says that there were no contacts with Russia to 'win' the election. Over and over, they are revealed. Many have already been revealed. Trump says there are no more. Alas, there are. Today's revelation of Trump collusion, coordination and conspiracy with Russia involved Trump's son, Don Jr. collaborating with Wikileaks to 'leak' stolen documents from the DNC and Clinton campaign. (Trump's CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, agrees with thousands of national security professionals: Wikileaks is an arm of the Vladimir Putin to degrade the US.) One dramatic Wikileaks gift to Don Jr. led to candidate Trump to tweet about it 15 minutes later. Many times during the campaign, Trump praised Wikileaks (145 times in last month of campaign) and Russia.

Trump voters and Roy Moore voters in Alabama have much in common. They knew that Trump bragged of being a serial sexual assaulter and in bed with Russia, but they voted for him. Alabama voters know that Roy Moore committed child molestation of a 14 year old girl,attempted rape of a 16 year old girl and sleezed around high schools and malls to pick up teenagers (so often that it was common knowledge he did so and the mall prohibited his presence and a police officer in Gadsden , AL said, "It was a known fact: Roy Moore liked young girls. We were advised that he was being suspended from the mall because he would hang around the young girls that worked in the stores and, you know, really got into a place of where they say he was harassing. And we were also told to watch him at the ball games, and make sure that he didn’t hang around the cheerleaders."), but they vote for him...particularly white evangelicals who have become a party of white supremacists. 37 percent of Alabama evangelicals, new age white supremacists, more likely to vote for Moore after allegations. One 'pastor' supporter explained Moore's soliciting young teenagers...all the women his age were taken and he always asked their mothers for permission to 'date' their child daughters.

November 12: Trump applauded Philippines President Duterte for murdering thousands of citizens and threatening to murder journalists.

November 12: Trump sided with a sworn enemy and called his own citizens haters and fools. Over and over, Trump caves to Putin. Trump calls sanctions against Russia excessive. New: Trump caved to Kim Jong Un. For Trump, Russia and North Korea are more important than the US.

November 12: Trump elated with finally meeting another of his dictator heroes, the mass murderer President Duterte of the Philippines, who has killed thousands of its citizens without judicial review.

Blame America First. Trump blames the US for the world's problems and Russia's interference in the election for Trump. Trump prefers dictatorships in Russia, Saudi Arabia and the Philippines.

November 11: Today is Veterans Day. Trump took this day to attack and deligitimize US national intelligence agencies and their scores of professionals dedicated to protect the US. Rather than honor them Trump honors Vladimir Putin and seeks to comfort Putin's hurt feelings for being outed for interfering in the election for Trump and against Democracy.

"There's nothing 'America First' about taking the word of a KGB colonel over that of the American intelligence community. There's no 'principled realism' in cooperating with Russia to prop up the murderous Assad regime, which remains the greatest obstacle to a political solution that would bring an end to the bloodshed in Syria. Vladimir Putin does not have America's interests at heart. To believe otherwise is not only naive but also places our national security at risk." (Senator John McCain)

November 11: Trump on Saturday lashed out at U.S. intelligence leaders for their conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, calling them “political hacks” and slamming the investigations into Russian interference as a “Democratic hit job.” "I mean, give me a break, they are political hacks. So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them." Traitor Trump now using Putin to obstruct US justice.

Child molester Roy Moore is a Trump role model for 'make America great again'. "After my return from the military, I dated a lot of young ladies." And, stripped yourself and a 14 year old girl down to underwear, giving her alcohol and forcing her to touch your genitals and, against her will, touching her genitals. Pervert.

Teresa Jones, who served as Deputy District Attorney for Etowah County, Ala., from 1982 until 1985, said that multiple people thought it was unusual that Moore dated high school girls, but that no one ever raised the matter with him. "It was common knowledge that Roy Moore dated high school girls, everyone we knew thought it was weird. We wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall ... but you really wouldn't say anything to someone like that."

One of his victims was subjected to attempted by Roy Moore when she was 16. Moore claims he never heard of her or the restaurant where it happened. Notably, Moore wrote in the girl's high school year book, "To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say Merry Christmas. Christmas 1977. Love, Roy Moore, D.A Olde Hickory House." (Old Hickoy House was the restaurant where Moore attempted rape)

November 11: Trump and Putin met in Viet Nam. Trump claims that Putin told him that Russia did not meddle with his election and he was offended by the accusations that he did. Trump also claims that he told Putin that the issue was caused by Democrats. Trump said he believed Putin and not any of the US and European national security agencies and computer experts, all of whom have unanimously found that Russia interfered with Trump's election on behalf of Trump. Putin said that there was no conversation with Trump about Russian meddling in Trump's election. Someone is lying here.

CIA chief Mike Pompeo: Putin attacked 2016 election. DNI Dan Coats: Putin attacked 2016 election. FBI director Christopher Wray: Putin attacked 2016 election. NSA head Mike Rogers: Putin attacked 2016 election. Putin: I did not attack 2016 election. Trump: I believe Putin.

Trump is loyal to Russian spies, not thousands of US intelligence officials.

November 10: Trump has degraded and isolated the US. Now, the US is the only country in the world fighting earth conservation. And, at the Asian Summit, all countries represented agreed to a trade agreement except the US.

November 10: One reason Trump is protecting Russian agent Michael Flynn is that Flynn and his son planned a few weeks before inauguration at the 21 Club in NYC to kidnap a Turkish cleric living in Pennsylvania and sell him to Turkey for $15 million Human trafficking can be lucrative, especially when funded by US taxpayers.

November 10: "I moved on her, actually. You know, she was down on Palm Beach. I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it. I did try and fuck her. She was married. I moved on her like a bitch. But I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look. You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy. You can do anything." (Donald J. Trump)

Too many Republicans approve this conduct as well as the pedophilia of Republican Senate candidate, Roy Moore. Some say what Moore did to teenage girls was OK because Jesus's parents also had different ages (are they saying that Joseph forced Mary to have sex?).

Republican leadership at first snickered and the news of Moore's pedophilia. Six top Republicans were asked about the Moore news on camera. Senate Majority Leader McConnell giggled. Georgia Republican Sen. Johnny Isakson stared into nothing. Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley laughed. Utah's Hatch with an "I can't believe this is happening/"Is this actually happening? Treasury Secrertary Stephen Mnuchen and Director of Economic Advisors Gary Cohn smiled.

Evangelical Jerry Falwell Jr.believes that Moore is more credible than 30 witnesses against Moore. An Alabama state representative wants the 4 girls prosecuted, hang 'em high. Fox News said that victims of sexual assault are few and far between (Fact: Every 98 seconds someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. That means every single day more than 570 new victims this country.) Incredibly, many voters in Alabama are supporting a sexual predator and attacking his teenage victims, some insisting that God approves. Moore supporters see him as the modern day Jesus Christ. Indecency in defense of indecency.

November 9: The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. during the 2016 campaign while promising damaging information on Hillary Clinton offered President Trump's eldest son opposition research created by Fusion GPS — the firm behind the unverified Trump/Russia dossier. In July, Trump Jr. released a chain of emails revealing that an associate had offered to set up the meeting between him and Veselnitskaya, explaining the information she could provide "would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father," and was "very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump.""If it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer," Trump Jr. wrote back in an email.

November 9: After Trump's 'Access Hollywoood' video was released, showing Trump bragging about committing serial sexual assault, Trump needed help. Russia stepped in, releasing the stolen emails from the DNC that Russia told the Trump campaign about a few months earlier, and unleashed numerous Twitter accounts attacking Clinton and praising Trump. Armed with Russia, Trump won the election.

November 9: We now know why Trump is backing the corrupt judge Roy Moore for election to the Senate. Moore enjoyed young girls. For example, alone with a 14 year old girl, Moore chatted with her and asked for her phone number. Days later, he picked her up around the corner from her house, drove her about 30 minutes to his home in the woods, gave her alcohol, told her how pretty she was and kissed her. On a second visit, he again gave her alcohol, took off her shirt and pants and removed his clothes. He touched her over her bra and underpants and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear. The girl told her friends when the illicit encounters happened and eventually her mother, long before Moore started running for the Senate. Three other teenage girls also had inappropriate relationship with Moore. Perhaps this is why Moore will not debate his opponent for the Senate seat.

Roy Moore was twice removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for contempt of court and the US Constitution. Between 2007 and 2012, Moore collected $1 million in undisclosed payments to himself from the Foundation for Moral Law, which he had founded in 2002 as a non-profit organization. This amount was more than the revenue the foundation reported in its public tax filings.

Senate Republican leadership is calling for Alabama GOP candidate Roy Moore to step down as the party's nominee if new allegations of his inappropriate sexual conduct against a 14-year old girl are true.

Several women are now suing Trump for sexual assault When his daughter was a teenager, Trump bragged on radio about her body and that he wanted to date her. Trump notoriously bragged that he often grabbed women's genitals. Aware of Trump's sexual proclivities, Russia offered Trump 5 women to be sent to his hotel room for sex during his 2013 business visit according to his body guard.

November 9: Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) announced Wednesday the Senate Foreign Relations Committee would hold a hearing next week on “the executive’s authority to use nuclear weapons. “A number of members both on and off our committee have raised questions about the authorities of the legislative and executive branches with respect to war making, the use of nuclear weapons, and conducting foreign policy overall.”

November 8: Trump officially praised China for taking advantage of the US. "I don't blame China," Trump said during remarks to business leaders inside the Great Hall of the People. "After all, who can blame a country for being able to take advantage of another country for benefit of their citizens? I give China great credit." Instead of pointing the finger at Beijing for exacerbating trade disputes, Trump blamed past US administrations "for allowing this trade deficit to take place and to grow." Trump and China, and Russia: anti-American. (During the campaign to lure gullible voters Trump claimed that China was raping the US and perpetrating the greatest theft in the history of the world. Undoubtedly, Trump is now lobbying for his businesses in China, a violation of the US Constitution.)

The Trump US is the only country in the world against conserving earth.

November 7: Trump produced historic wins against Republicans across the US in state elections, most notably for the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General of Virginia; the Democrat Governor candidate won by 9 points.

"You (voters) have sent a message tonight not simply to the voters in the Commonwealth of Virginia, you have sent a message across the globe to South Korea: Donald Trump, you do not stand for our values. The America that Donald Trump comes back to in a few days is far different than the America he left. It's an America, where we are regaining our values." (Tom Perez)

Trump scores big for white supremacists and against Republicans.

November 7: Trump dramatically elevated the stature of North Korea in his speech in South Korea. According to Trump, the US is intimidated and threatened by North Korea, bringing what used to be the strongest country in the world down. Concurrently, Trump enhanced North Korea's need for self defense against the US. Looking to annihilate North Korea, Trump has amassed a massive nuclear arsenal in the air and sea. Trump is shattering respect for the US, music to Putin's ears.

Trump used the speech to market his golf course business in New Jersey.

November 6: Twitter data shows that Russian Twitter support for Trump started shortly after he launched his White House bid. 10% of Facebook, whose Russian ads for Trump reached 126 million voters, is owned by Putin associates. Rather than show up for a congressional hearing, Facebook CEO went to Russia to meet with Putin. Twitter and Facebook are Russian conduits to assault America.

November 5: Another mass shooting under Trump. 26 murdered, 30 injured. Not a big deal to Trump, the shooter was white. If the shooter had been an African American or someone posing as a Muslim, Trump would erupt with calls for 'extreme vetting' and execution. For white killers, Trump sees no need for prevention.

Trump is proud that the LARGEST mass murders are occurring now. Las Vegas was the largest in US history. Sutherland was the largest in a US church.

Sure, Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. Secondary reasons included collaboration to degrade the United States and Democracy and normalize white supremacy. The primary reason is money. Putin is by far the richest person in the world, nearly three times in net worth as Bill Gates or Warren Buffet or Trump's nemesis Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon and the Washington Post. Trump is obsessed with money.

Putin is Trump's mentor financially and politically. Trump seeks to emulate Putin's white supremacy, hate of the media and poisoning of his rivals Trump thinks that this will make him ultra rich too.

November 4: Attacking immigrants by day for his racist 'base', Trump approved his southern White House business, Mar-a-Lago, to hire 70 foreign workers. US workers, thousands available to Trump in Palm Beach, are unqualified for Trump.

November 4: Lies about Russia continue. We already knew that Trump's Commerce Secretary directed a Cyprus bank notorious for Russian money laundering. Now we learn that Ross failed to disclose shared business interests with Russian President Vladimir Putin's family. The documents show that Ross still has interest in Navigator Holdings, which was partially owned by his investment company. Putin's son-in-law, as well as other members of the president's inner circle, control a Russian energy firm that has a relationship with Navigator. Ross previously vowed to cut ties with more 80 financial entities that he has interests in. Of course, he lied.

A trove of more than 13 million leaked documents was published by news organizations around the world on Sunday, the contents of which implicate top officials and associates of President Donald Trump, as well as foreign politicians, in shady business relationships tied to offshore financial accounts. In at least two cases, the documents highlight previously undisclosed connections to Russia and Kremlin-linked interests.

The documents also reveal that Russian tech leader Yuri Milner invested $850,000 in a startup called Cadre that Kushner co-founded in 2014.

Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be told lies. To be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery. (Octavia E. Butler)

November 4: "He's a blowhard."( President George H. W. Bush about Trump) "This guy doesn't know what it means to be president." (President George W. Bush) George H. W. Bush voted for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. George W. Bush left the top of the ballot blank.

November 4: On July 27, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee approved three articles of impeachment against Richard M. Nixon. The second article charged that President Nixon abused the powers of the presidency either by using or trying to use federal investigative agencies against his political enemies or by interfering or trying to interfere with lawful investigations by those agencies into his own wrongdoing or that of his subordinates. Friday morning, President Donald Trump sent out a series of tweets in which he explicitly urged the Justice Department and the FBI to investigate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party for a grab bag of supposed offenses—emails deleted from then–Secretary of State Clinton’s private server, the Russia-uranium kerfluffle, activities by Tony Podesta (lobbyist and brother of Secretary Clinton’s campaign manager), and the allegation that officials at the Democratic National Committee worked with Clinton’s campaign to give it a boost over Sen. Bernie Sanders’. Every item on the laundry list of things for which Trump wants the Justice Department to investigate his political opponents is either not a crime, has already been or is being investigated—or in the case of the Clinton-uranium “scandal,” is an invented storyline promoted by Trump and his supporters to divert attention from Robert Mueller’s investigation. When a president of the United States publicly proclaims that he wants an executive branch agency to do something and will be deeply displeased if it doesn’t, that’s tantamount to an order. As the Nixon articles of impeachment observed, a president has the solemn constitutional obligation to “take care that the laws shall be faithfully executed.” If this duty means anything in the criminal justice setting, it means that presidents shoulder an obligation even more binding than that assumed by their subordinates not to unleash on any citizen the intrusive, life-altering power of federal investigative agencies absent credible evidence that a real crime may have been committed. It is not acceptable for a president either to employ, or threaten to employ, the agents and ministers of the criminal law of the United States against his enemies for political gain. A president who does so engages in precisely the class of misconduct perilous to the maintenance of republican government for which the founders designed the remedy of impeachment. (Slate)

Trump is taking America out of the US. America's declarations of ideals and values since 1776 are being desecrated by Trump in favor of greed, Russia and ego gratification.

November 3: Trump is removing the US from the international effort to fight corruption that targeted revenue from oil and natural gas extraction. Trump likes fraud.

If you are white and kill 58 (Las Vegas), Trump has little to say or do. If you are not white and kill 8 (New York), Trump explodes and wants you sent to Guantanamo, Cuba, tortured and executed. All unconstitutional.

Trump is collaborating with Steve Bannon/Breitbart to obstruct justice. Bannon/Breitbart threaten anyone supporting investigation into Trump-Russia collusion.

Collusion definition: secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, especially in order to cheat or deceive others.

November 2: A former top adviser to Putin, Gleb Pavlovsky, said that Putin takes credit for President Trump's victory in the 2016 election. "He [Putin] most probably thought that Clinton would be the winning candidate, and he tried to build his propaganda accordingly. Why not help her adversaries? They will be helpful, most probably, if he gives them a helping hand," Pavlovsky said.

November 2: "I'm the only one that matters." (Trump) 

November 2: Trump says he is sad and frustrated that he cannot control the Department of Justice to assault Hillary Clinton. Trump says the DOJ and Congressional investigations into Russian interference in the election are a disgrace and bad for the country.

November 2: On behalf of Trump, AG Jeff Sessions keeps lying about campaign connections with Russia. He denied any occurred. Turns out Trump and Manafort met Russians in Trump Tower, Clovis approved of staffers go to Russia (Papandopolous and Page did) and staffers spoke with Sessions about meeting with Russians and/or going to Russia.

J.D. Gordon, a former campaign adviser who was at the meeting, said Papandopoulos told Trump and Sessions that he was going to Russia to gain illegal gifts for the campaign (at a meeting that Trump, Sessions, Papandopoulos and Gordon were photographed at table in Trump Tower). Trump, who says he has the greatest memory ever claims he cannot remember any of this.

Carter Page admitted discussing with campaign officials his July 2016 meeting in Russia with Russia's Deputy Prime Minister.

While Trump and surragates try to lie, saying that George Papandopolous was no more than a coffee boy, Papandopolous had many discussions with Russia for the campaign and represented the campaign at numerous events in the US and abroad (including during the July Republican National Convention with Senator Bob Corker and Republican House members). The American Jewish Committee said that Papandopoulos was a contact AJC established and maintained with the Trump campaign. Papandopoulos even met with Israeli officials during Trump's inauguration January 20, 2017. (January 27, Papandopoulos was interviewed by the FBI, lying about his Russian contacts, arrested and began cooperating with the FBI July 27, and pleaded guilty October 5, his plea agreement unsealed October 30; he likely recorded conversations and emails with Trump staff during his FBI cooperation - particularly July 27-October 30)

November 2: We now know why Trump likes coal. His Secretary of Energy says fossil fuels prevent sexual assault. Trump, who brags about his success with sexual assault, knows he needs help in that department.

November 2: Another Trump lie exposed. Trump claims that Hillary Clinton paid the British MI6 agent $12 million to produce a 'dosier' about Trump and to collude with Russia(to lose the election). In fact, a law firm linked to the DNC paid the British agent $168,000 to extend investigation into Trump beyond that of a Republican operative.

November 2: Department of Justice investigators have identified at least 6 Russian government officials who took part in hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) on behalf of Trump. Trump says his DOJ is lying. He is still looking forthe real culprit, that 400 pound guy sitting in bed.

November 1: Trump called the US justice system a joke and laughing stock. Panic mode is setting in for Trump. He is increasingly frightened that the US justice system will continue to investigate him.

November 1: Unable to accept responsibility for his presidential decisions, Trump blamed Jared Kushner, his son-in-law, for firing James Comey and Michael Flynn and the investigations into Trump-Russia collusion to win the election. Previously, Trump blamed Hillary Clinton, the Democrats, Republicans, AG Jeff Sessions, James Comey and renegade FBI agents. Actually, Trump is to blame.

November 1: Steve Bannon, Trump's brain, does not think that Trump would survive an impeachment vote.

November 1: In the largest terrorist-driven attack in the US since 9/11/2001 Trump has yet to contact anyone in NY, not the Governor, not the Mayor, not the Police Chief. No one. And, Trump has not addressed the nation other than accusatory tweets and threats against immigrants (virtually everyone in the US is a descendant of an immigrant). Trump blamed the attack on NY Senator Chuck Schumer. Responding to Trump's attacks, Governor Andrew Cuomo said, "This is not the time to foment hate. The President's tweets were not appropriate. You play into the hands of the terrorists to the extent you obstruct and divide society." Mr. Big Man has nothing to offer but hate, attacks and division.

November 1: A poll published by the American Psychological Association finds 59 percent of Americans surveyed think this is the lowest point in the nation's history. 63 percent, say they are stressed about the nation's future. 60 percent of respondents said they were stressed about the social divisiveness in the country today.

November 1: Bush vs Trump. George Bush responded to the 9/11 terrorist attack in NYC by uniting Americans and reaching out to Muslims. Donald Trump, in stark contrast responded to yesterday's terror attack by dividing Americans, blaming political correctness and Senator Chuck Schumer, and threatening Muslims. Trump endeavors to be the strongest inspiration for terrorism, inciting terrorism to achieve degradations of America.

Outside of 9/11, the 2 largest terror attacks occurred in Oklahoma City and Las Vegas. No Trump extreme vetting or Muslim ban would have prevented them, or the tens of thousands of murders in the US. Terrorism is one of the least likely cause of death in the US, but Trump tries to blame Muslims for our problems. Trump bigotry will never work other than to divide.

Notably, Trump seeks to reduce funding for anti-terror programs.

Notably, Trump and terrorists rely upon the same weapons, Facebook, Twitter, lies, gullibility and fake news.

October 30: Trump's racism and longing for return of slavery is so infections that Chief of Staff James Kelley called generals fighting for slavery and breakup of the US patriots and deserving of commemorative statues. Kelley says that lack of compromise caused the civil war. No, it was slavery.

"I would tell you that Robert E. Lee (a Civil War General that killed Americans in defense of slavery) was an honorable man," Kelly said. "He was a man that gave up his country to fight for his state, which 150 years ago was more important than country. It was always loyalty to state first back in those days. Now it's different today. But the lack of an ability to compromise led to the Civil War, and men and women of good faith on both sides made their stand where their conscience had made them stand." There is no 'good faith' in support of slavery. There is no honor in killing hundreds of thousands of Americans in defense of slavery. Kelly is the definition of a dishonorable man.

October 30: Trump despises Americans so much that he is breaking the health care system by dramatically increasing insurance costs, the numbers of uninsured, resulting in increased treatment expenses.

October 30: Trying to calm fears, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told lawmakers that Trump does not have authority to use military force in North Korea outside of an imminent threat.

October 30: 126 million American's viewed Russian ads for Trump on Facebook alone. If merely 0.1% were swayed to vote for Trump because of Russia's advertising, this provided the margin for Trump's Russia-enabled win. (advertising is designed to sell a product; if advertising didn't work it would cease)

For example, thousands of Americans attended a march last November organized by a Russian group that used social media to interfere in the 2016 election.

October 30: Trump and his staff spent another day misleading the American public to obstruct justice. They claim that today's indictments and guilty plea had nothing to do with Russian collusion. In fact, they were all about collusion. Russian offers to meet the Trump campaign to disclose "dirt" on HIllary Clinton, a common method of Russia to corrupt western governments, were well received by Trump's campaign. Trump campaign managers responded regarding the efforts of one of their contacts with Russia, campaign national security expert embraced by Trump George Papandopolous, "Great work," "Let's discuss," they would "work it through the campaign." Papandopolous told Trump's meeting of national security experts March 2016 that he had connections that could arrange a meeting between Trump and Putin. In April, Papandopolous sent several members of Trump's campaign staff his outreach to Russia. June 1, Paul Manafort told Papandopolous to contact the campaign supervisor "running point' on Russia collusion. Papandopolous even had a Facebook page documenting his negotiations with Russia for Trump. It is clear in Meuller's 31-page statement of offenses of Papandopolous that Mueller has vast quantities of Trump campaign emails to and from all levels of Trump campaign staff about illegal and treasonous activity. Many have to be wondering from the campaign how they incriminated themselves with emails to Papondopolous, especially after July 27, 2017, the day he was arrested by the FBI and today, the day his guilty plea was made public.

Papandopolous had several emails to and from Trump's campaign chair (Paul Manafort) and co-chair (Sam Clovis), who often encouraged his negotiations with Russia. For example, in April and May 2016, Papandopolous told Manafort that Putin is eager to meet Trump to contribute Hillary Clinton emails Putin hacked. In August 2016, Clovis told Papandopolous that "I would encourage you" and another foreign policy advisor to the Campaign to "make the trip (to Russia/Putin), if it is feasible." Clearly, Papandopolous had continuous contact with the highest levels of Trump's campaign, Manafort and Clovis, who encouraged Papandopolous and collusion with Russia to win the election. (In May/June 2016, Russia reached out to Don Jr. (Trump's son) with similar offers to contribute to Trump's campaign, leading to at least one meeting in Trump Tower in June)

For more obstruction of justice, Trump is attacking Papandopolous to intimidate a witness in federal litigation.

Trump rewarded Clovis's collusion by naming him Chief Scientist for the Dept. of Agriculture. Clovis is not a scientist.

October 30: “Man’s capacity for justice makes democracy possible, but man’s inclination to injustice makes democracy necessary.” (James Comey)

Lame. As Trump's campaign associates get indicted and plead guilty to crimes, Trump blames Hillary Clinton.

October 30: Adding to Trump's prolific obstruction of justice, Trump is extorting his enemies. Last Friday, Trump spoke with Steve Bannon, Trump's brain, to further Trump's enemy list and work out strategy to attack Trump's enemies.

October 30: Trump campaign advisor George Papadopolous pleaded GUILTY to making false claims to the FBI. He was arrested July 27 and has met with prosecutors several times since. The agreement to plead guilty was made October 5 in exchange for information. Accordingly, Papadopolous was permitted to plead gulty to charges lesser than being considered by prosecutors. Tick, tick, tick.

Papandopolous worked to arrange meetings between Trump and Russian agents DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND PLEADED GUILTY AND MET WITH PROSECUTORS TO REVEAL EVEN MORE. Papandopolous MET WITH RUSSIANS MANY TIMES TO DISCUSS RUSSIAN GIFTS TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, EG THOUSANDS OF EMAILS of HILLARY CLINTON in their possession (also a subject of Don Jr's meeting June 16, 2016 in Trump Tower in NYC with Russian government representatives). Undoubtedly, Papandopolous discussed these matters with many other on Trump's campaign staff, including Trump and his son, Don Jr.

This guilty plea and ongoing testimony of Papandopolous to the FBI is BIG NEWS specific proof of Trump collusion with Russia to degrade America.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Two campaign officials were specifically knowledgeable of Papandopolous's negotiations with Russia. One sent the other an email stating, "Let's discuss. We need someone to communicate that DT is not doing these trips. It should be someone low level so as not to send any signal." Awareness of treason and crime. These 2 officials will likely not sleep well for a while.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

October 30: Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort indicted on 12 counts, including conspiracy against the US (including while he was Trump's campain manager and through 2017), conspiracy to launder money ($75 million), false statements, conspiracy to evade US taxes and acting as an unregistered foreign agent - all charges equally applicable to Trump. Manafort and his similarly indicted co-conspirator, Richard Gates, were arrested. More Trump criminals waiting to be arrested.

The US government requested that the judge approve a $10 million bail for Manafort, a $5 million bail for Gates and confinement to house arrest for both. UPDATE: the court approved.

The charges against Manafort and Gates mirror what many financial experts have long claimed about the Trump Organization: that they have been at pains to hide money from the IRS, including money from foreign sources; that they have engaged in conspiracies to launder foreign money; that they have made false statements and conspired to hide foreign funds. This is an indictment that should terrify Trump in that it shadows and hints at his own unlawful conduct and nabs two players who might be willing to cooperate to get out of their mess. 

The White House, defending Trump's treasonous acts, claimed victory in the Manafort/Gates indictments because there was no mention of Russia. However, in directly related documents, particularly a 55-page document, Mueller noted that Manafort was paid millions of dollars by a Russian oligarch AND has a Russian national employed in Manafort's office in Moscow. And, the court documents show that Manafort and Gates are high risk for flight from justice and that they have substantial financial resources and contacts in Russia.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
!!!!! Trump lunching with Attorney General Jeff Sessions today to plot illegal strategy against prosecution of Trump and his family.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trump hush money. Trump offering $500,000 toward legal fees for his corrupt associates. Trump obstruction of justice rolls on.

October 29: Preparing for arrest of someone in the Trump campaign tomorrow resulting from the 'Mueller investigation' (DOJ Special Prosecutor, investigating Trump collusion with Russia), the White house yesterday announced that Hillary Clinton collusion with Russia (to loose the election) is indisputable and Clinton should go to jail. This is the best misdirection that they can come up with even though there is NO investigation of Clinton as there is is Trump. Virtually everyone in Trump's administration, most notably his national security agencies, concluded long ago that Russia interfered with the US election to get Trump elected. Yet another Trump attempt to sabotage the Mueller investigation and obstruct justice.

UPDATE: Trump is on the war path against everyone today. He is blaming the Democrats for investigating him and not investigating Hillary Clinton. However, Republicans, holding the House, Senate, DOJ and FBI, define the who gets investigated. Violating rule, Trump is ordering the DOJ to investigate Clinton and stop investigating him. And, he keeps creating fake facts, a skill he learned from Putin. Trump is begging someone/anyone to "DO SOMETHING!" Scared he is. More Trump obstruction of justice.

October 28: Billionaire Republican-donor hedge fund manager Seth Klarman ripped President Trump at an investment conference last week, calling Trump “a threat to democracy.” “The president is a threat to democracy. He has attacked journalists and he’s threatening to take away NBC’s license. He’s attacking judges. He’s violating all sorts of democratic norms, from the emoluments clause to questioning the election and threatening to lock up his opponent. His words and actions over the last several days are so shockingly unacceptable in our diverse and democratic society that it is simply unthinkable that Donald Trump could become our president. The country is getting divided, whether it’s immigrants, whether it’s transgender people, whether it’s blacks, whether it’s Mexicans. It’s awful.”

October 28: Revealing his delusion again, Trump boasted that he is ahead of schedule for the release of JFK documents mandated by law 25 years ago. Still, Trump is violating the law by holding back hundreds of pages.

Similarly, Trump claims that Michael Moore's Broadway show was forced to close. False. It ran the scheduled course.

October 28: Disregarding his promises to NOT do business in foreign countries, Trump is opening 2 new business ventures in India.

October 28: Trump's inhumanity shows again. A ten-year-old girl with cerebral palsy was rushed to a US hospital for emergency gull bladder surgery. Trump removed the girl from her parents and sent her to jail for deportation. Families have little importance to Trump other than his own.

October 27: White House announced that the dozen+ women reporting sexual assault by Trump are all liars. Standard response of a serial sexual assaulter.

October 27: Trump invited about a dozen children of media representatives to degrade the children's parents, not grow up to be like their parents and applaud the children for not being fat. Despicable Trump mouth again.

October 27: Trying to deflect attention from the first indictments into the Trump-Russia investigation and collusion between Trump and Putin BEFORE the election, Trump alleged that Hillary Clinton colluded with Putin, who hated Clinton, AFTER the election. More Trump guild exposed.

October 26: “We have a leader who has a personality disorder,” according to former Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)

October 25: Trump again bragged about his memory, "one of he best of all time." Notably, when under oath to tell the truth, eg during depositions, Trump remembers very little.

October 25: Revealed today, the Trump campaign, as part of its multi-million payment to a computer data firm also heavily financed by Breitbart's sugar daddy, had direct contact June 2016 with Julian Assange of Wikileaks, a front for the Russian government according to previous and current (ie, Trump's) US national security agencies. July 2016, Trump reached out to Wikileaks on television regarding what his campaign was negotiating with Wikileaks/Russia a few weeks earlier, one of the 137 mentions of praise for Wikileaks that Trump expressed in 2016. Yet another component of Trump's collusion with Russia to tilt the election.

Trump running the government like a business -- his business, bilking US taxpayers and foreign governments.

October 25: To their historical discredit, Republican legislators claim that the comments about Trump by Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake are merely personal comments, missing the profound meaning of their comments that will be heralded in history. Such head-in-the-dirt rejection of Corker and Flake is reminiscent of the views of England in the 1700s to the comments of the founding fathers of the United States of America as transcribed in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Trump supporters, as England, dismiss America's values, replacing them with hate, greed, fascism, racism, bigotry and degrading democracy.

October 25: Senator Jeff Flake. "As I contemplate the Trump presidency, I cannot help but think of Joseph Welch. On June 9, 1954, during the Army-McCarthy hearings, Welch, who was the chief counsel for the Army, famously asked the committee chairman if he might speak on a point of personal privilege. What he said that day was so profound that it has become enshrined as a pivotal moment in defense of American values against those who would lay waste to them. Welch was the son of a small prairie town in northwest Iowa, and the plaintive quality of his flat Midwestern accent is burned into American history. After asking Sen. Joseph McCarthy for his attention and telling him to listen with both ears, Welch spoke: “Until this moment, senator, I think I never really gauged your cruelty, or your recklessness.” And then, in words that today echo from his time to ours, Welch delivered the coup de grace: “You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?” We face just such a time now. We have again forgotten who we are supposed to be. There is a sickness in our system — and it is contagious. How many more disgraceful public feuds with Gold Star families can we witness in silence before we ourselves are disgraced? How many more times will we see moral ambiguity in the face of shocking bigotry and shrug it off? How many more childish insults do we need to see hurled at a hostile foreign power before we acknowledge the senseless danger of it? How much more damage to our democracy and to the institutions of American liberty do we need to witness in silence before we count ourselves as complicit in that damage? It’s time we all say: Enough."

October 24: Senator Bob Corker. "The shame of it is, there are some some really good people around him, and if he would stay out of their way and let them perform, people like (Rex) Tillerson and (James) Mattis and others, we could really make progress on things that matter greatly to our country. I would hope the staff over there would figure out ways of controlling him when they know that everything he said today was absolutely untrue. The President has great difficulty with the truth. On many issues. I think that he's proven himself unable to rise to the occasion ... I don't think that that's possible. He's obviously not going to rise to the occasion as president. I don't know why he lowers himself to such a low, low standard, and debases our country in a way that he does, but he does. I think world leaders are very aware that much of what he says is untrue. When his term is over, I think the debasing of our nation, the constant non-truth telling, and the -- just the name calling, the things that I think, the debasement of our nation is what we will be remembered most important, and that's regretful."

October 24: Recognizing that history is watching and that one can not be a Republican with Trump, Senator Jeff Flake announced that he will leave the Senate. His speech will be respected by history. Trump will not be, and is not today.

(excerpted) Mr. President, I rise today to address a matter that has been much on my mind, at a moment when it seems that our democracy is more defined by our discord and our dysfunction than it is by our values and our principles. It must also be said that I rise today with no small measure of regret. Regret, because of the state of our disunion, regret because of the disrepair and destructiveness of our politics, regret because of the indecency of our discourse, regret because of the coarseness of our leadership, regret for the compromise of our moral authority, and by our -- all of our -- complicity in this alarming and dangerous state of affairs. It is time for our complicity and our accommodation of the unacceptable to end. We must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country - the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms, and institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons, reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with the fortunes of the people that we have all been elected to serve. Without fear of the consequences, and without consideration of the rules of what is politically safe or palatable, we must stop pretending that the degradation of our politics and the conduct of some in our executive branch are normal. Reckless, outrageous, and undignified behavior has become excused and countenanced as "telling it like it is," when it is actually just reckless, outrageous, and undignified.And when such behavior emanates from the top of our government, it is something else: It is dangerous to a democracy. Such behavior does not project strength -- because our strength comes from our values. It instead projects a corruption of the spirit, and weakness. It is often said that children are watching. Well, they are. And what are we going to do about that? When the next generation asks us, Why didn't you do something? Why didn't you speak up? -- what are we going to say? Mr. President, I rise today to say: Enough. If I have been critical, it not because I relish criticizing the behavior of the president of the United States. If I have been critical, it is because I believe that it is my obligation to do so, as a matter of duty and conscience. The notion that one should stay silent as the norms and values that keep America strong are undermined and as the alliances and agreements that ensure the stability of the entire world are routinely threatened by the level of thought that goes into 140 characters - the notion that one should say and do nothing in the face of such mercurial behavior is ahistoric and, I believe, profoundly misguided. Now, the efficacy of American leadership around the globe has come into question. When the United States emerged from World War II we contributed about half of the world's economic activity. It would have been easy to secure our dominance, keeping the countries that had been defeated or greatly weakened during the war in their place. We didn't do that. It would have been easy to focus inward. We resisted those impulses. Instead, we financed reconstruction of shattered countries and created international organizations and institutions that have helped provide security and foster prosperity around the world for more than 70 years. And the beneficiaries of this rather radical departure in the American approach to the world are the ideological enemies of our values. Despotism loves a vacuum. And our allies are now looking elsewhere for leadership. I have children and grandchildren to answer to, and so, Mr. President, I will not be complicit. We were not made great as a country by indulging or even exalting our worst impulses, turning against ourselves, glorying in the things which divide us, and calling fake things true and true things fake. And we did not become the beacon of freedom in the darkest corners of the world by flouting our institutions and failing to understand just how hard-won and vulnerable they are."

October 24: Trump admires Putin's power. A radio anchor and critic of Vladimir Putin was stabbed in the neck after an intruder forced his way into the radio station she works at in Moscow. US anchors, beware, Trump may give Putin's trick a try.

October 24: Senator Bob Corker about Trump, "Unfortunately I think world leaders are very aware that much of what he says are untrue. I don't know why he lowers himself to such a low standard. It debases our country. Asked if he regrets supporting Trump's 2016 campaign, Corker responded, "let's just say this, I would not do it again." Corker responded with a quick "No," to a question about whether he considered Trump to be a good role model for children. "The president has great difficulty with the truth. I don't know why he lowers himself to such a low low standard and debases our country in the way that he does, but he does," Corker said. "I think the debasing of our nation ... will be what he'll be remembered most for."

October 23: Trump banned Bill Browder, a British citizen and critic of and subject to arrest by Vladimir Putin, from entry to the US to support Putin. Browder was a driving force behind the Magnitsky Act (2012), a U.S. law under which Russians suspected of human rights abuses can see their assets frozen and visas revoked by the U.S. government. It was named after Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky, who died under mysterious circumstances while imprisoned in Russia. Magnitsky served as a lawyer to Browder. In response to U.S. passage of the Magnitsky Act, Russia cut off the U.S. adoption of Russian children. Congress demanded an immediate review of Trump's ban, which led to the Department of Homeland Security overturning the ban following outcry over the revelation that his travel privileges had been revoked.

Browder is a hedge fund manager in London whose tax lawyer in Russia, Sergei Magnitsky, was taken into custody on false charges and died in prison in 2008. U.S. Congress subsequently passed the Magnitsky Act, which applied sanctions to Russia in 2012.

October 23: Trump rescinded 72 documents that laid out the rights of students with disabilities. A couple weeks ago, Trump weakened protection of students against sexual assault.

October 23: Sgt. La David Johnson's widow says she was “hurt” by some of the things Trump said to her in a phone call after her husband was killed in an ambush in Niger. Myeshia Johnson confirmed the account of Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), who was in the car when the call came and publicly that Trump told Johnson her husband “knew what he signed up for.” “Whatever Ms. Wilson said was not fabricated, what she said was 100 percent correct,” Johnson said. “Why would we fabricate something like that? … I was very angry at the tone of his voice and how he said it.” Johnson said that the military would not allow her to see any part of her husband's dead body or answer any questions about his death. Trump and his disgusting chief of staff maintain that the family are liars, including the widow and mother of the killed US soldier. Trump proves over and over he is despicable.

Trump responded by Tweet another one of his famous attacks, this time against another grieving Gold Star widow. If you aren't white, Trump will attack your family if you are killed serving your country.

October 23: Trump placed the fleet of nuclear-armed B-52 bombers on 24-hour alert for the first time since 1991. Trump looks forward to the smell of death in the air.

Donald Trump and Harvey Weinstein have much in common.

October 22: Every investing partner working with Trump's company on a project to build a $500 million project of luxury condominiums in Toronto lost money on the project, save for Trump himself, according to an investigation published by the Toronto Star. The developer, Leib Waldman, was detained and extradited to the U.S., where he was sent to prison. Trump, however, walked away from the project with millions, according to the Toronto Star's report.  He collected $1.7 million in management fees between 2014 and 2016, as well as a further payout of at least $6 million after walking away from the project.

October 21: Non stop lies. Trump bragged that he called every soldier killed since he took office. False. He didn't even write letters to them. Due the controversy he began a few days ago, the White House scrambled to send letters to these soldiers. Belated disrespect. Trump would not have ever contacted the soldiers he sent to the grave if he wasn't shamed to do so.

October 20: Yesterday, Trump commanded his Chief of Staff, a General, to LIE to Americans. Video tape revealed the lie. General John Kelley ferociously attacked a member of Congress for being invited as a close friend and critical mentor to her son killed in military service October 4 (his funeral is tomorrow) to accompany her and her children and mother to receive the casket of her dead son, a casket that could not be opened because her son was so mutilated. Kelly scorned at length the congresswoman with a litany of lies, proven so by the 2015 videotape. Kelly lied, claiming that the congresswoman bragged about generating the funding for a new FBI building. The facts: the congresswoman did not achieve no brag about or even mention the funding. Rather, the congresswoman assisted the FBI in renaming the building at FBI request and praised law enforcement at length. Nothing Kelly said was true, and should, even if he is a Trump hack, apologize to the congresswoman and Blue Star families. Last night, Trump called the congresswoman crazy and wacky. A few hours earlier called her a liar (for telling the readily provable truth). To deflect questions about Kelly's lies, Trump says you cannot criticize a general, something Trump did for a sport during the campaign last year, calling general fools, incompetent and stupid. Trump egregiously dishonored General Kelly and the memory of Kelly's son killed in action in Afghanistan.

Trump defenders made thousands of threats of harm against the congresswoman, an African American, eg assembling "ten good men to help carry out a lynching," adding that they "must have own horse and saddle" but "rope will be provided.” Trump supporters find tremendous inspiration in Trump. Wonder if 'General' Kelly is patting himself on the the back for becoming Trump's 'defender-in-chief' AND assisting Trump in attacking women and African Americans.

October 20: Putin calls on Americans to respect Trump. "Inside the country, disrespect is shown for him. This is a regrettable negative component of the US political system."

October 20: Scared of them, Trump fired all US attorneys. Particularly for NY and DC districts, Trump is personally interviewing replacements to identify those he can trust to derail investigation and prosecution of his bad acts.

October 20: Trump Campaign Staffers Pushed Russian Propaganda Days Before the Election. Kellyanne Conway and Donald Trump Jr. pushed messages from an account operated from Russia’s ‘troll farm’—including allegations of voter fraud a week before Election Day. (Daily Beast) More collusion.

Trump is the role model for our children for cruelty, lying, vendetta, irresponsibility, blaming the innocent, bullying, racism, white supremacy, bigotry, name calling, sexual assault and stealing. Trump is vigously causing suffering in millions and assaulting American values. Causing suffering, especially when motivated by the darkness of aggressive ego, is the worst thing anyone can do. Slavery was America's first sin. Trump is America's second.

October 19: The CIA said on Thursday that the U.S. intelligence community has not reached new conclusions on Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, hours after the agency's director, Mike Pompeo, said that intelligence agencies had determined that the meddling had no effect on the results. Pompeo acknowledged at another security conference earlier this year that Russia did meddle in the presidential race.

October 19: A year ago and again 3 days ago, Trump tried, in vane, to prove he is the biggest man by demeaning Gold Star families grieving for their lost child, spouse and/or parent, killed in war. He boasted of calling all the Gold Star survivors, claiming that previous predidents were puny next to him. False of course. He bragged about promising to reduce his contact to an offer of $25,000 he would personally give out of his own pocket to a Gold Star father. Trump's check was not sent until the press noticed, just like how Trump tried to sneak away from contributions promised to veterans during his fraudulent campaign. Numerous Gold Star families have reported that Trump never called them, revealing more Trump lies. North Korea is right, Trump is mentally ill, overtaken by bully ego and greed.

About 3 weeks ago, 4 soldiers were killed in Africa under Trump's command. Trump gave them no support. They were ambushed and killed, one, and African American, not found for 2 days and so mutilated the military would not open his casket.

A few days before the ISIS attack in Niger, Trump banned travel from Chad. In turn, Chad removed its troops fighting ISIS from Chad. Thus, Trump's bigotry against Muslims, combined with Trump's lame command of the military, caused the death of 4 US soldiers in this ISIS attack in Niger.

October 19: United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Thursday that the Russian government committed "warfare" against the U.S. last year when hackers tied to Moscow meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. "When a country can come interfere in another country's elections, that is warfare," Haley said at the George W. Bush Institute with former secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice. "It really is, because you're making sure that the democracy shifts from what the people want to giving out that misinformation."

Haley added that Russia's cyber capabilities have become its "weapon of choice" against the U.S. and other democracies.

October 19: "Discontent deepened and sharpened partisan conflicts. Bigotry seems emboldened. Our politics seems more vulnerable to conspiracy theories and outright fabrication. We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty. We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism – forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America. We see a fading confidence in the value of free markets and international trade – forgetting that conflict, instability, and poverty follow in the wake of protectionism. We have seen the return of isolationist sentiments – forgetting that American security is directly threatened by the chaos and despair of distant places, where threats such as terrorism, infectious disease, criminal gangs and drug trafficking tend to emerge. Bullying and prejudice in our public life sets a national tone, provides permission for cruelty and bigotry, and compromises the moral education of children. The only way to pass along civic values is to first live up to them." (President George Bush)

October 19: Trump says that the FBI is colluding with Russia regarding the 'dosier' prepared by a UK national security agent that outlined Trump's collusion with Russia to capture the election. Yet another Trump obstruction of justice.

October 19: North Korea believes that Trump is mentally ill. In response to Trump's threat to eliminate North Korea from earth, North Korea feels it must defend itself from the US plan said the US will face "unimaginable" nuclear strike. Trump is looking forward to his nuclear war.

October 18: Trump the pendulum. First he is against ObamaCare, then for it, then against, then yesterday firmly endorsed a bipartisan effort to repair the sabotage Trump perpetrated last week. A few hours later, Trump reversed course again, now against his endorsement. Trump again reveals his schizophrenia and gloats in ruining millions of lives.

October 18: Today's Trump obstruction of justice, undermine FBI Director James Comey again, alleging he "lied and leaked" information to save Hillary Clinton. In fact, Comey created clouds over Clinton that combined with Trump's Russia collusion to illegitimately tilt the election to Trump.

October 18: Special counsel Robert Mueller has interviewed a cybersecurity expert who claims he was "recruited to collude with the Russians" in the 2016 election. Matt Tait claimed that he was recruited by a longtime GOP operative tied to the Trump campaign, Peter W. Smith.

October 17: In the wake of Trump's sabotage of ObamaCare, Trump proclaimed, "There is no such thing as ObamaCare anymore. It's dead."

October 17: More Trump degradation of judiciary. Trump nominated his consultant attorney in the Russian collusion probe to become a federal judge in the District of Columbia, this installing a corrupted judge who will likely eventually rule for Trump in legal cases against Trump.

October 17: Trump finally called the widow of a soldier, an African American, killed in action only to blame the soldier for getting killed, sarcastically repeating that "he knew was getting into." Another example of Trump's lack of empathy. It took 2 weeks and media questions to finally call families of soldiers killed in the largest number killed since Trump took office.

Trump responded by saying these first hand accounts are false. BUT, the mother of a killed soldier agreed that Trump was disrespectful, as he proved to be many times before against families of soldiers killed in action (eg, the Kahn family) and, repeatedly against John McCain for being captured and tortured for 6 years leaving him permanently disabled.

Trump committed to personally donate $25,000, an insult itself, to the father of a fallen soldier and promised to create an online fundraiser for the soldier’s family, but never followed through. Another insult. Then, when caught red handed, the White House announced that the check would soon be in the mail. Another insult. Though he claimed to contact all fallen soldiers (all nine of them, notably spending days calling 5 at a time!), this too a lie. And injurious political stunts. Par for Trump. Insult upon insult. Lie upon lie. Demean everyone.

October 17: Trump claimed that he has done more so far than "any president in history." True, to promote terrorism, white supremacy, the KKK, neo-Nazi's racism, sexual assault, division, culture wars, personal vendettas and treason and to degrade America, Americans, American ideals, democracy, the US Constitution, presidency, White House, Congress, the judiciary, religious freedom, rule of law, health care, the environment, education, public safety, families, our children's future, decency, integrity and truth.

Trumps's sources are fictitious. When caught in a lie, he first lies again, then insists someone, or 'people', told him this or that. Actually, Trump is simply using these fictional characters to prove or rationalize his lie. The meek media never press Trump for the identity of these people.

October 16: Trump had a press conference to brag that he is superior to other presidents because he MIGHT SOMEDAY IN The FUTURE contact the family of soldiers he sent to their death, the most soldiers killed since Trump took office. More lies. In fact, previous presidents contacted families of killed soldiers thousands of times, including Obama who contacted families at least hundreds of times.

Trump uses American soldiers killed in action as political pawns to attack, attack, attack.

There are 2 things that even Trump supporters will not do. Letting Trump manage their assets or be alone with their daughter.

October 15: Trump says that Vice President Mike Pence “wants to hang” all gay people.

October 15: A Canadian man who was recently freed from captivity from Taliban-tied kidnappers for five years in Afghanistan said he thought his captors were joking when they told him President Trump was president.

October 15: GOP donors attending a retreat for Speaker Paul Ryan in Jackson Hole, Wy., in August were given a slideshow highlighting the Democrats who would take over committees if Republicans lose the House next fall. One slide featured Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), who would take over the Oversight panel if Republicans lose their majority. That would give Cummings and Democrats subpoena power, which more and more Republicans believe would lead to an impeachment of Trump. "When Democrats take control of the House they will absolutely move for articles of impeachment," one Trump confidant predicted. In more than a dozen interviews, Republicans inside and outside the White House say that conversations are ramping up behind the scenes about whether Trump fully grasps that his feuds with members of his own party and shortage of legislative achievements could soon put the fate of his presidency at risk.

October 15: Contrary to Washington buzz, Trump did not castrate Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who announced, "I checked and I'm intact." Good news.

"What I do take seriously is when he [Trump] tries to destroy the credibility of the media. An independent press that can gather information that people can compare to the government’s versions of events — that is what we do. It is as crucial to our democracy as the right to vote. And when people try to undermine that, I think they are undermining the foundations of our democracy." (Bob Schieffer)

While Trump gave Russia a win in its war against the US, Russia isn't finished.

Trump is so offended that Obama was President that Trump's mission is to erase Obama's presidency.

Trump is the ultimate elitist, considering everyone else inferior, gullible and a mark for his cons.

Trump in the White House green lights sexual predation.

October 15: North Korea called Trump a "war merchant and strangler of peace." Trump is so small.

October 15: 100 psychologists and mental health professionals — are pushing for Trump to be ousted from his post. “We can sense the power of Trump’s underlying fear that he is worthless and weak by how intensely he resists and retaliated against any criticism,” said Harry Segal, a Cornell University psychologist. “No matter how minor, he can’t let anything go.” Michelle Golland, a clinical psychologist, told The New York Post the country is "suffering from his narcissistic personality." “He has no empathy. You can feel it, the way he spoke about the San Juan mayor," she said. "She has PTSD and our president mistreats her. She is re-victimized. That is a narcissist.”

Something else Trump does not respect. In 1943, The Supreme Court very forcefully declared that punishing students for not participating in the Pledge of Allegiance was unconstitutional. The decision had nothing to do with the students' religion and everything to do with their constitutional right to freedom of speech. As the Court wrote, in language that has become one of the most important principles of modern free speech law: "If there is any fixed star in our constitutional constellation, it is that no official, high or petty, can prescribe what shall be orthodox in politics, nationalism, religion, or other matters of opinion, or force citizens to confess by word or act their faith therein. If there are any circumstances which permit an exception, they do not now occur to us."

October 14: Iran's response to Trump. "The Iranian people will not bend down before a dictator." The moron known as Trump transferred the moral high ground to Iran, something no one else in the world could have done.

"Mr. Trump’s sociopathic characteristics are undeniable. They create a profound danger for America’s democracy and safety. Over time these characteristics will only become worse, either because Mr. Trump will succeed in gaining more power and more grandiosity with less grasp on reality, or because he will engender more criticism producing more paranoia, more lies, and more enraged destruction." (retired Harvard psychiatry professor Lance Dodes)

October 13: Trump further smashing the Affordable Care Act, producing dramatic increases in insurance cost and loss of insurance for millions of Americans...and ballooning the deficit $200 billion. Ruin the lives of Americans to feed Trump's vendettas.

The key to understanding Trump's motivations here are entirely contained in the ACA's shorthand nickname: Obamacare. It's named after the man -- former President Barack Obama (duh) -- who shepherded it into existence. And that's exactly why Trump wants to get rid of it. Trump's entire political life -- dating all the way back to his adoption of birtherism earlier this decade -- is positioned against all things Obama.

October 13: Disagreeing with all other countries, Israel, his national security staff (including DOD Secretary James Mattis) and his previous 2 certifications this year, Trump will 'decertify' the Iran nuclear deal so that Iran can quickly develop nuclear weapons. Trump is determined to have a nuclear war one way or another, insisting it is in US interest to have nuclear weapons and to have a nuclear war.

October 13: A former aide to President George W. Bush wrote Friday morning that it’s time for the GOP to “panic” abot Trump’s fitness for office. “It is no longer possible to safely ignore the leaked cries for help coming from within the administration,” Michael Gerson writes. “They reveal a president raging against enemies, obsessed by slights, deeply uninformed and incurious, unable to focus, and subject to destructive whims.”

October 12: "The companies represented at the Business Roundtable are very concerned with reports that the Trump administration will weaken NAFTA with drastic changes that would disrupt supply chains that have greatly benefited U.S. businesses, workers and consumers over the last two decades," Joshua Bolten, president and CEO of the group, wrote. “Even worse, withdrawal from NAFTA would put at stake millions of American jobs in every sector of the U.S. economy, the competitiveness of U.S.-produced goods and services, and our country’s standing as a global economic leader.”

If the Founding Fathers, creators of the Constitution and signers to the Declaration of Independence were not white, Trump would demean them, tell them to stop whining and ban their protests and even presence. He would prohibit their politics and ideals, eg "We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

October 12: Professional sports teams across the nation have stopped staying at Trump hotels, with many citing Trump’s divisiveness. 16 of the 17 NFL, NBA, MLB and NHL teams that stayed at Trump hotels in recent years confirmed they will be checking in at other properties when traveling.

October 12: Charlottesville, Va. and several local businesses have joined a lawsuit against white nationalists and “private militia groups” - fine people according to Trump - to prevent them from holding rallies in the city.

October 12: Trump canceled US membership in UNESCO, a specialized agency of the UN. UNESCO is responsible for coordinating international cooperation in education, science, culture and communication. UNESCO encourages international peace and universal respect for human rights by promoting collaboration among nations. These missions disgust Trump.

October 12. Trump is falling apart. “I hate everyone in the White House! There are a few exceptions, but I hate them!” Trump yells in the White House, breaking into temper tantrums often. Trump threw a fit in mid-July as his top advisers made their case to stick with the Obama-era Iran deal, was angry he was being compelled by Secretary of State Rex ­Tillerson, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and others to re-certify the 2015 nuclear deal that he viewed as a disaster.

Several months ago, former chief strategist Steve Bannon told Trump that the risk to his presidency wasn’t impeachment, but the 25th Amendment—the provision by which a majority of the Cabinet can vote to remove the president. When Bannon mentioned the 25th Amendment, Trump said, “What’s that?” Bannon has told people he thinks Trump has only a 30 percent chance of making it the full term, ie a 70% chance of being removed.

October 12: Unlike hurricane recovery support for Texas and Florida, Trump threatened to terminate support for Puerto Rico (a country of 3.4 million American citizens) even though 90% remain without electricity 2 weeks after the hurricane. He already stopped cargo shipments of needed supplies. Trump's racism on parade.

October 12: Trump, like Mao and Mussolini before him, gleefully degrades the press, and wants it to cease. Fundamentally, Trump tosses the Constitution once again. He wants to shred licenses of news networks to take them off the air (as usual, Trump is clueless, news networks are not licenses by anyone).

In response, Republican Ben Sasse issued this statement. "Mr. President: Words spoke by the President of the United States matter. Are you tonight recanting of the oath you took on January 20 to preserve, protect, and defend the First Amendment?"

A conservatuve columnist, Jennifer Rubin, wrote today that the Founding Fathers had Trump in mind when they added the impeachment clause. "He is precisely the sort of person whom the Founding Fathers had in mind when they included the impeachment clause. That’s not merely outrageous and indefensible. It is, I would argue, one of many instances in which Trump’s words reveal an inability to carry out his oath of office."

"Russia attacked the US and Putin's propaganda channel Russia Today still broadcasts in the US. But Trump threatens NBC for criticizing him." (Gary Kasparov)

October 11: “Your (America's) ancestors really considered the importance of liberty, freedom, democracy, these things.” (Dalai Lama) Now, not so much.

October 11: Trump is obsessed with using nuclear weapons. So he provokes North Korea and Iran, itching to pull the nuclear trigger to kill millions. Trump thrives at perpetrating atrocities, it balloons his ego to believe he is the biggest and baddest hombre the world has ever known. Before the election, Trump asked why not use nuclear weapons since we have them. Just a few months ago, July 20, Trump called for expanding US nuclear weapons TENFOLD with the nation’s highest ranking national security leaders, according to three officials who were in the room. It was soon after the meeting broke up that officials who remained behind heard Tillerson say that Trump is a “moron.” A moron with nuclear weapons for a self-obsessed juvenile psychopath to play with.

Two days ago, Trump again ruled out diplomacy with North Korea. Last night, he ordered 2 bombers with nuclear weapons fly over the Korean Peninsula. Over the past several days, Trump announced to get ready for his "storm."

While they realize the danger in private, for public consumption, most congressional Republicans support Trump's plans for destruction, genocide and treason.

October 10: Trump made 1,318 false or misleading claims over his first 263 days in office. That's over 5 false statements a day.

October 10: White House staff noted that they must constrain Trump from his anger with his Cabinet, Congress and the media. Chief of Staff John Kelly and DOD Secretary Jim Mattis have a plan to prevent Trump from launching a nuclear war even if it means physically restraining Trump. Most Senators believe that Trump is unfit for office. A very sorry state of America and degradation of the office held by George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan.

October 10: A year ago, we listened to Trump bragging on video how much he enjoyed to sexually assault women. A few days later, Trump threatened to sue all the women who reported his sexual assaults against them, though he has yet to do so. Years earlier, Trump announced he wanted to date his daughter, Ivanka, because of her body.

October 10: The University of Hawaii sent an email to students with tips on how to prepare for Trump's nuclear war.

October 10: The world's most famous moron, Trump, woke up to tell the world that his IQ is superior to that of Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Trump also attacked Republican Senator Bob Corker for being "liddle" and a "fool." Sure glad he cleared these critical matters up, so presidential.

Mensa offered to host an IQ match between Trump and Tillerson. Trump will not show up to expose his lie about superior IQ.

“Being powerful is like being a lady. If you have to tell people you are, you aren't.” (Margaret Thatcher)

October 9: It was the reality show battle of Trump's wives today. Ivana Trump insisted she is responsible for Trump and is the 'first lady'. Malania fought back, insisting she was. Break for commercial, and in the next episode of Trump TV........................to be continued.

October 9: Trump promised 6% economic growth. The firm from which Trump's top 2 economic experts came from, Goldman Sachs, determined that Trump's economic plan would increase economic growth by 0.1-0.2%, ballooning deficits and adding to the overall debt burden more than ever before. Of course, Trump will give himself a massive tax cut. Trump's corruption is boundless.

October 9: Putin says that Trump should exercise restraint in dealing with North Korea and there will be negative consequences if Trump abandons Iran nuclear deal. Trump prefers nuclear wars with North Korea and Iran and the escalation to World War III as China and Russia enter to control the madman of the world, Trump.

October 8: Trump’s digital campaign chief says Facebook was why president won. Russia's Facebook ads did the trick. Trump supporters bought the conspiracy hook, line and sinker. (Russia also placed ads for Trump in Instagram, Twitter, Pokemon Go, Google search pages, Gmail and YouTube)

October 8: Trump said he invented 'fake news'. Russia used his invention for Trump.

October 8: San Juan's (Puerto Rico) pleaded for help again, particularly for hospitals losing their power. “We filtered out the mayor a long time ago. We don’t have time for the political noise,” FEMA administrator Brock Long responded on behalf of Trump.

October 8: "It's a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed their shift this morning (referring to today's Tweet storm from Trump). He concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation. I don’t know why the president tweets out things that are not true. Corker said that Trump was treating his office like “a reality show,” with reckless threats toward other countries that could set the nation “on the path to World War III.”" (Republican Senator Bob Corker)

“Mr. Corker was expressing views that are widely held on Capitol Hill and even within the Trump Administration.” (Wall Street Journal)

October 8: Trump's encouragement of cyberwarfare against the US led to 2 military drones were infected by computer virusee. And, Russian interference against US elections goes unabated.

October 8: Trump ordered VP Pence to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayers dollars, inconvenience tens of thousands of football fans and put Americans at risk, sending him from Nevada to Indiana to attend a football game but to walk out in protest of African Americans and then to California to raise campaign funds for Russia's other insider, Representative Dana Rohrabacher. Trump/Pence protesting African Americans and supporters exercising their constitutional rights. Yet another corrupt political stunt against Americans.

October 7: Trump says let them go extinct, who needs animal species on earth. Today's target, the critically endangered Pacific Walruses, which Trump removed from legal protection.

October 7: It takes one to know one. Trump, the world's most famous perpetrator and promoter of sexual assault, trashed movie producer Harvey Weinstein for sexual harassment.

History is recording that Trump is the most corrupt politician in history. For ego enhancement, he entertains white supremacists, the KKK and racists. He squanders tens of millions of taxpayer dollars, funneling public funds into his businesses. His Cabinet secretaries live like millionaires, subsidized in their jet-trotting travels by taxpayers. He works international business deals with foreign governments in violation of the US Constitution. An array of crimes are perpetrated from the White House. Trump's only policy is to undue anything associated with Obama, willing to destroy American values, American prestige and leadership, our children's futures, health care, public safety, the economy and the environment for his vendetta and for his wallet. Trump created the concept of fake news to denigrate the news he generates.

October 6: Bravo. A women's advocacy group is airing the infamous "Access Hollywood" tape near the White House over a 12-hour stretch on Friday – just short of a year after the recording was made public. The group, Ultraviolet, is running the footage on a giant screen on Constitution Avenue, between the White House and the National Mall, on a loop from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. "It was not so-called ‘locker room talk,’ it was a man bragging about sexually assaulting women. The Donald Trump on that tape is the same Donald Trump that sits in the Oval Office every day, aggressively pursuing an anti-woman agenda, including the active dismantling of legal protections for survivors of sexual assault." (Ultraviolet co-founder Shaunna Thomas said in a statement) Trump will probably escape at taxpayer expense to promote one of his businesses.

October 5: After dinner with his military leaders, Trump warned of a storm coming. War or BS diversion from Tillerson calling him a moron?

October 5: White House told media “you have a responsibility to tell the truth.” Trump has a greater responsibility to tell the truth but instead lies. When the media reports a Trump lie, Trump calls it fake news.

Today, Trump told Congress and the Deptment of Justice to investigate the media. A violation of US Constitution.

Whenever Trump calls something fake news, he confirms that it is true.

Sentient beings are not Trump supporters. Trump supporters think sentient beings are elitist and don't want to be one. (sentient beings are beings with consciousness)

October 5: The expected was confirmed by the Secret Service. Trump is allowing no log be kept of his 'visitors' (foreign governments and lobbyists) meeting with him at his posth Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, what Trump calls the southern White House.

October 5: A handful of GOP deficit hawks are worried that Trump's tax plan could add trillions to the deficit, deepening a debt crisis for future generations. (so that Trump can gain millions from taxpayers)

October 5: Two of Trump's best friends are meeting today to plot against US with Trump's blessing to curb oil supplies to the West: Vladimir Putin and Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz. The Saudi king travelled to Russia for first time its king travelled to Russia in Saudi history.

October 4: "(Mattis, Kelly and Tillerson) work very well together to make sure the policies we put forth around the world are sound and coherent. There are other people within the administration that don't. I hope they stay because they're valuable to the national security of our nation. Secretary Tillerson, Secretary Mattis and Chief of Staff Kelly are those people that separate our country from chaos." (Senator Bob Corker) Trump is that chaos.

Trump visited an island completely devastated by the fury of Hurricane Maria and in full Trump fashion, used the opportunity as a self-aggrandizing political photo op to pat himself on the back for the “great work” he and his administration have done in Puerto Rico. It was an exercise in shoring up Trump’s massive, fragile ego that had been bruised by critics who know what an afterthought in planning and preparation Puerto Rico actually was for this administration. (MARIA CARDONA)

Trump knows he is a loser and weak caught in the twilight zone of constantly failing to prove otherwise.

October 4: Recognizing what Trump proves in new ways every day, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Trump a moron. Trump is also vindictive and obsessed with himself.

October 3: Trump went to Puerto Rico to tell them in person that Hurricane Maria was not a real catastrophe. The country has no electricity and almost no safe housing, water or phone service! Trump also blamed Puerto Rico for "putting the budget out of whack." He may spit on Puerto Ricans in his next stop and will probably keep telling everyone how great he is. Of course, he isn't.

Trump created a photo op with about 50, presumably Puerto Ricans, and, like a game show host, threw rolls of paper towels to them. Sick. Demeaning. Making a joke about suffering. And, that's not all. So disconnected from reality, in handing out flashlights, Trump said they didn't need them (few will have electricity for months to come). Trump went into tangent land bragging about how great his embrace is of F35 fighter jets. No time for empathy or serious assistance.

Next, he'll throw pennies to poor people.

October 3: The Justice Department released several legal memos issued under past administrations that found it is unlawful for presidents to appoint family members to White House positions or commissions. The memos, issued to White Houses run by former Presidents Nixon, Carter, Reagan and Obama, were overruled by Trump so he could (illegally) appoint his daughter and son-in-law to high White House positions, only to proceed to violate an array of other laws.

October 3: Trump rejected the Senate Judiciary Committee's request to access information about Russian interference in last year's election. The more truth that gets out the more illegitimate Trump is shown.

October 3: Oxfam America is stepping in to help Puerto Rico, saying the Trump administration's response has been “inadequate." The global non-profit's president, Abby Maxman, said in a statement Tuesday that the group is “outraged” at the U.S. government’s slow response in Puerto Rico, where more than half of the population is without clean drinking water, and food and electricity are scarce in the wake of Hurricane Maria. “We’re hearing excuses and criticism from the administration instead of a cohesive and compassionate response. The US has more than enough resources to mobilize an emergency response but has failed to do so in a swift and robust manner.” Maxman said.

While Puerto Rico is surrounded by water, Trump is under water, over his head. Unable to cope. So he attacks Puerto Ricans instead of solving their real problems.

October 3: Trump and his lawyers keep lying. Last week, they said that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner used only a single private email account to send a few emails for White House business. We now know that they have several private email accounts ON PRIVATE SERVERS they used to store HUNDREDS of government emails, just the activity Trump wants to send Hillary Clinton to prison for. Undoubtedly, the numbers will keep growing just as their disclosures of their meetings with Russia went from zero to a few to many. Undoubtedly, we will learn that they deleted numerous emails with Russia regarding Russia's interference in the election on behalf of Trump. The clan never tells the truth.

October 2: Unlike Trump's normal racist bluster against suspects, Trump gently discussed the largest mass murder in US history. Why? The killer was white.

Trump in the White House is like putting a New York City playing card street hustler in charge.

October 1: Today's Trump racist episode. From his posh golf course, Trump called Puerto Ricans, American citizens desperate to stay alive and standing in lines for everything (toilets, food, water, fuel, their cash, medicine), "politically motivated ingrates" and lazy people who want everything done for them. Again, they are desperate without safe homes, electricity, food, water and medicine. Trump would would go full crazy if he had to live for a few minutes what Puerto Ricans will endure for months and likely years.

With malice toward all and charity only toward white supremacists and Vladimir Putin. With Trump, it's always open season against victims of disaster or social injustice.

Adding insult to injury, from his golf course Trump dedicated a golf trophy to the victims in Puerto Rico, victimized by a hurricane and Trump racism since. Victims need food, water, medicine, a safe home and electricity...not a trophy.

Trump can't handle the truth, and he cannot handle reality. He claimed that helping people in Puerto Rico was too much of a challenge for him, the biggest challenge the US has ever faced, bigger than going to the moon, winning World War II, storming the Normandy beach on D-Day in 1944, founding the US and more.

October 1: Trump again insulted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, announcing that Tillerson is wasting his time with diplomacy with North Korea. Trump wants to kill people instead, preferably with nuclear weapons. For Trump, war crimes are more appealing than peace.

What a crybaby Trump is.

September 30: Hurricane Maria was the worst hurricane to hit Puerto Rico in 90 years. Yesterday, with most of Puerto Rico without food, water, medicine, fuel, safe homes and more, the mayor of San Juan, in tears over the scope of the human suffering and devastation, begged for help. Trump says no, it's her fault, attacking this morning via Twitter, falsely claiming that she is a poor leader. Trump also attacked Puerto Ricans, American citizens, for needing and asking for help. Trump had no such degradations for white Floridians and Texans after Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. Rather than focus on saving lives, and stranding tens of millions of pounds of critical supplies on San Juan docks, Trump is focused on genocide and attacks against American citizens except for white supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK members (no criticism of Putin, America's biggest adversary outside of Trump, either).

September 29: Trump fired HHS Secretary Tom Price for wasting taxpayer money for travel. Trump wastes far more than Price or his other Cabinet secretaries fleecing America. For example, taxpayers paid $330,000+ for a ski trip for his children.

September 29: Trump's genocide of American citizens continues 9 days after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico. Because most are non-white, the world's most famous white supremacist is dragging his feet to save the lives of 3.4 million American citizens in Puerto Rico. 9,500 shipping containers containing millions of pounds of relief supplies are stranded ON LAND in San Juan. Trump's excuses: he never heard of a Category 5 hurricane and Puerto Rico is surrounded by water and Puerto Rico carries debt. So what. Get over your racism for once in your life and stop letting Puerto Ricans die to fan your political base. Puerto Rico is not doing well as you said today. Have you no shame?

Puerto Rico, an American territory 110 miles by 35 miles, is about the size of Connecticut. Too big for Trump to handle.

Our fellow Americans are suffering in Puerto Rico because of the toxic mix of incompetence, delusion, dishonesty and malfeasance of POTUS. (Steve Schmidt)

Following Trump's lead, his Cabinet secretaries and family are spending million in taxpayer funding for personal pleasure flights for dinner with family, to watch the eclipse or to meet with lobbyists.

September 28: Because many in Puerto Rico are Hispanic, Trump is determined to kill as many as possible, charging them to escape and keeping 9500 shipping containers with millions of pounds of food, water, medicine and supplies locked and unaccessible to PR's hurricane victims. Make them suffer (3.4 million American citizens). Despicable.

Trump says his assault against PR's 3.4 million American citizens is a great job and his Director of Homeland Security is satisfied with how the US is helping, boasting that it is a great news story for Trump. No one in PR agrees, eg they are being rationed 2 packets of ice cubes and must pay $3 each.

Update: Following a week of suffering, death and criticism, Trump caved and is finally sending the military to PR to save the country and its 3.4 million American citizens.

September 27: Trump hates transgenders unless they are in his family. Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, registered to vote as a female. Lock her up.

September 27: A Trump-size conspiracy theory? A writer of fake political news who previously said he aided Trump's election has died near Phoenix, police said Tuesday. Evidence at the scene suggested this could be an accidental overdose. Paul Horner, whose fake news stories often went viral on Facebook and Twitter, said last year that Trump supporters were especially susceptible to being fooled. “My sites were picked up by Trump supporters all the time,” Horner said. “I think Trump is in the White House because of me. His followers don’t fact-check anything — they’ll post everything, believe anything. His campaign manager posted my story about a protester getting paid $3,500 as fact. Like, I made that up. I posted a fake ad on Craigslist. But Trump supporters — they just keep running with it! They never fact-check anything! Now he’s in the White House. Looking back, instead of hurting the campaign, I think I helped it. And that feels [bad].” Could this be the murder that Trump bragged that he could get away with? Could Putin, famous for poisoning people, have been involved with Trump as he was involved in fake news for Trump?

September 27: Trump is doing little to help Puerto Rico's 3.4 million American citizens because many are not white. Trump denied a request from several members of Congress to waive shipping restrictions to help get gasoline and other supplies to Puerto Rico. More shame.

September 27: FBI announced that there are 1,000 cases of investigation of domestic terrorism, eg by white supremacists like the killing in Charlottesville (the case where Trump called white supremacists good people and those protesting them bad dudes).

September 26: Director of the Drug Enforcement Agency resigned because Trump has no respect for rule of law.

Trump, supported by congressional Republicans, made Russia's president Vladimir Putin the most successful US politician in history. Putin installed the 46th president of the US.

Trump, a loser in life is a loser in the White House implementing Putin's plan to divide America, divide Americans, trash Democracy and degrade NATO.

September 25: Lock her up. And, lock him up. Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner have illegally been using private email accounts for White House business. No doubt, illegally deleting the emails as well. When Hillary Clinton used a private email address, when it was not illegal, Trump wanted to send her to prison for being so evil.

So did Steve Bannon, Reince Priebus, Gary Cohn and Steven Miller. Undoubtedly, there are many more as they keep contact with their benefactor Vladimir Putin.

September 25: Trump rushes to judgement against Muslims any chance he can get. "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel. They are also working with North Korea," Trump tweeted. "Not much of an agreement we have!" He says he will cancel the Iran nuclear deal over this. PROBLEM: the missile launch was fake news. Trump, who ignores facts and the intelligence community, told everyone it was true, just another Trump lie.

What is wrong with kneeling? We kneel in church. We kneel for reverence. NFL players, and now because of Trump more athletes, kneel to protest racism and social injustice, both anti-American. However, Trump elevates un-Americans and has cultivated supporters who hold allegience to racism and Russia. Shame on Trump's band, and brand, of white supremacy.

Trump demands BANNING African Americans from the NFL for calling attention to racism, social injustice and police brutality. Trump loves banning who he sees as inferior, particularly Muslims and African Americans.

Trump called Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones four times imploring him not to let his team kneel during the national anthem. Trump's persistence didn't pay off. Jones and the entire Cowboys team briefly knelt before the national anthem began. The team then stood as the anthem was sung. The Dallas Cowboys were among several teams that demonstrated, and are still demonstrating, not against the US or its anthem but against racism and social injustice. 

Trump is branding the Republican Party as the party of racists. Congress keeps going along with the world's most famous white supremacist.

September 24: Trump confirmed his policy of genocide against the 25 million people of North Korea, "They won't be around much longer."

For the first time in US history, a presidential candidate collaborated with a foreign adversary in its war against the US. As president, Trump portrays a dark apocalyptic country founded on lying, war crimes, juvenile threats, racism, white supremacy, sexism and Nazism. He has convinced 30-40% of Americans that his treason and tyranny are OK, as are insults, bullying and greed.

September 22: "Our intelligence community assessment did, I think, serve to cast doubt on the legitimacy of his victory in the election," James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence, said.

September 22: Trump, seeking to promote sexual assault on campus, dropped protections for its victims.

September 22: Contrary to all evidence, conclusions of Trump's CIA/Dept. of Justice/Homeland Security/Dept. of State/Dept. of Defense, experts, congressional Republicans and Russian government officials, Trump says that Russia's interference in the US presidential election was a hoax.

September 22: "Far from making remarks of any persuasive power that can be viewed to be helpful to defusing tension, he made unprecedented rude nonsense one has never heard from any of his predecessors. I will make the man holding the prerogative of the supreme command in the U.S. pay dearly for his speech calling for totally destroying [North Korea]. I will surely and definitely tame the mentally deranged U.S. dotard with fire. (dotard means senile old man lunatic)." So says Kim Jong-un, called Rocket Man by the infantile Trump.

Trump's idiocy is creating nuclear weapon crises in North Korea and Iran. He is reducing the stature of the US and the presidency to that of North Korea and Iran.

It looks like Russia's agent, Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, was placed into the Trump campaign by Russia to steer it and accomplish degradation of the US.

September 22: "Winning the popular vote is easier, " Trump said because he lost the popular vote.

September 22: Trump is a ridiculous commander-in-chief. He commanded the NFL to fire players taking a stand, by kneeling at football games, against racism and social injustice...both promoted by Trump. Trump yelled, his favorite communication style, "Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. He is fired."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell fired back at Trump for encouraging league owners to remove players who take a knee during the national anthem, saying "Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities."

An array of NFL and NBA players blasted Trump, who attacked African American players. The mother of one of Trump's targets responded to Trump, "It’s always at his rallies, and he’s always pandering and playing to the crowd. There are a lot of racist people in that crowd, a lot of people that are just looking for something to get hyped about, and this is the kind of thing he does. It’s like a bully on a playground, I guess."

"Going to White House was a great honor until you showed up! This guy that we’ve put in charge has tried to divide us once again. We all know what happened at Charlottesville and the divide that caused and now it’s even hitting more home for me now because he’s now using sports as the platform to try and divide us." (Lebron James)

"The callous and offensive comments made by the President are contradictory to what this great country stands for. Our players have exercised their rights as United States citizens to spark conversation and action to address social injustice." (CEO of the San Francisco 49ers Jed York)

Trump hates the First Amendment and loves to demean African Americans. Scum Trump.

Trump and Putin have the same answer. About election interference and collusion, both say they do not know how, the 'too stupid' defense.

We now know that Russia's government distributed massive fake news stories, purchased Facebook ads and organized Trump campaign rallies to get Trump elected. And, we know that Trump campaign officials collaborated with these efforts.

Ann Coulter, previously a fired-breathing Trump advocate, calls for Trumps impeachment. Trump supporters are burning the Trump merchandise they purchased.

In May, the co-founder of Twitter apologized for the social media platform’s role in Donald Trump’s rise to the White House.

September 20: Only 2 countries oppose the Paris climate accord, Syria and the US. Trump keeps reducing the US to the status of Syria and North Korea. No longer does the US inspire the world with American ideals.

A web site to watch, https://investigaterussia.org. It follows the details of Russia's war against the US via Trump.

September 20: Trump is so broke that he is using election campaign funds and the RNC to pay for his criminal defense lawyers. A self-claimed billionaire cannot afford a few million or even use the millions he is making from his White House business selling favors to foreign governments.

September 19: With the approval of a FISA judge, conversations of collusion between Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, and Russian operatives, on Trump's behalf, were recorded during the campaign AND after Trump became President.

September 19: Trump's speech to the UN was an embarrassment. Bluster, threats of war crimes and boasts of getting elected.

September 19: Trump threatened to destroy with nuclear weapons one of the smallest countries in the world, North Korea, about the only country in the world he can bully. A war crime. Weak. He sees the US as the North Korea of the West. Does anyone think that Russia and China would do nothing if Trump destroyed North Korea? (North Korea borders on Russia and China)

While in the White House, Trump permitted Michael Flynn to sell nuclear technology to Jordan with the assistance of Russian finances. The White House is a profit machine for Trump.

Trump now wants fired FBI Director James Comey arrested as a felon, claiming that he lied.

September 19: Because of Trump the US lost 5% in tourism, reducing foreign visitors by 700,000. Favorability view declined from 64% to 49%.

September 18: The 2 top criminal defense lawyers commiserated at a DC restaurant, complaining that Trump will not give them all critical documents pertaining to his collusion with Russia to steal the election. Instead, Trump keeps the documents locked in a White House safe.

September 18: Trump began his first speech to the UN with praise for his apartment building across the street whose profits were enabled by its proximity to the UN. Nevertheless, Trump says the UN is an enemy of democracy and freedom.

September 18: Trump is jealous of Russia, China and North Korea. Like their dictators needing to prop them selves up with street military displays, Trump want to roll tanks, bombs and all the rest down Pennsylvania Avenue in DC.

September 17: Trump distributed again incitement to violence, this time a video wherein he takes a swing and the golf ball hits Hillary Clinton in the back causing her to fall as she enters an airplane. Terrible message to our children.

September 14: Claiming to know more than anyone else about everything, Trump claimed that he never knew that there were Category 5 hurricanes...even though the Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were both Category 5.

September 11: "U.S. intelligence missed it when Russian intelligence stole the president of the United States." (so says member of Russian Parliament, Vyacheslav Nikonov)

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma showed how small Trump is. Having done nothing other than taking credit for what he claims are the biggest disasters ever.

September 8: The U.S. Civil Rights Commission slammed Trump's pardon of former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. "The [Arpaio] pardon functionally endorses racial profiling and abuses of authority, contrary to the work of the hundred of thousands of hardworking law enforcement officers around the country who uphold the law. (re DACA) The decision is a tremendous blow to the personal dreams and ambitions that DREAMers have been working toward since the DACA program began in 2012. They now face a reality where they are at risk of being exploited in the workplace and deported and prevented from fully contributing to and supporting their families, communities, and country."

The Civil Rights Act of 1957 created the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. Since then, Congress has reauthorized or extended the legislation creating the Commission several times; the last reauthorization was in 1994 by the Civil Rights Commission Amendments Act of 1994. Established as an independent, bipartisan, fact-finding federal agency, its mission is to inform the development of national civil rights policy and enhance enforcement of federal civil rights laws. It pursues this mission by studying alleged deprivations of voting rights and alleged discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, or national origin, or in the administration of justice. It plays a vital role in advancing civil rights through objective and comprehensive investigation, research, and analysis on issues of fundamental concern to the federal government and the public.

September 7: Don Trump, Jr. testified in Congress that he colluded with Russia to help his father win the election. He planned and attended a meeting with several Russian agents in Trump Tower June 2016 to gather opposition research against Hillary Clinton. This meeting also exemplifies obstruction of justice. First, Trump et al said the meeting never happened. Then, Trump as President wrote a false story that the purpose of this meeting was to discuss adoption. Then the Trump team said there was no campaign discussion. Alas, Don Jr. released some of his 2016 emails July 2017 showing his excitement at colluding with the Russian government to get his father elected. (We need Don Jr.'s email server and all of his emails. It is virtually impossible that the email chain he released in July is all there is.) Today, he verified his fraudulent intent for this meeting. This is the best story his lawyers could come up with, undoubtedly the full truth is far worse.

Don Jr. lied as well, falsely claiming that he did not talk about the meeting to his father. A few days after the meeting, Trump Sr. bragged about having Russia's treasure trove against Clinton.

September 6: The 'Dreamers' Trump wants to deport represent what Trump hates the most: non-white, educated and having the audacity of dreaming to be true Americans.

September 5: Racists are jubilant today, reinforcing their belief in Trump's loyalty to white supremacists and neo-Nazis. Trump is forcing 800,000 children who grew up as Americans to be forcefully returned to a country they never knew. The children, average age 6 years old, came to the US with their parent(s), got educated, earned a living and paid taxes, contributing billions of dollars to the economy. Business leaders, religious leaders and many Republicans disagree with Trump's cruel action. Yet another horrific Trump statement about the US to the rest of the world.

September 5: Trump has elevated North Korea to a world and nuclear power, simultaneously leading the US into decline. Other than starting a nuclear war with North Korea, likely aided by China and Russia against the US, the only idea Trump has announced is cutting off trade with China, Russia, South Korea, India, Pakistan, Thailand, Mexico, the Philippines and others. Trump wants to ruin the world economy and peace one way or another.

A guiding hand behind Trump is his hate of an African American, President Barrack Obama. Most of his decisions are simply to dismiss Obama's decisions. Rather than show strength, Trump demonstrates cowardice and weakness.

As of this Labor Day, September 4, Trump has plans to destroy the world economy, kill millions and separate millions of children from their families so that he can have businesses in Russia. Non-stop lies, chaos, racism and attacks from a narcissistic sociopath. Trump is making the US the leader in white supremacy and neo-Nazism.

September 4: Trump twitter-attacked South Korea because its government does not want US nuclear bombs to be dropped on North Korea. Trump's intent to destroy North Korea would kill millions in South Korea. No wonder its leaders do not wand US attack on North Korea.

September 3: Trump announced his intention to cut off all trade with companies doing business with North Korea. China is a major trading partner with North Korea. Shutting down all trade with China would devastate the US and world economies. Other North Korea trading partners include India, Pakistan, Burkina Faso, Russia, Thailand, Mexico and the Philippines. The US stock market would lose at least 50% of its value day one. Trump ain't no business man. No wonder he declared bankruptcy so often.

September 3: Trump bellicose bravado induced North Korea to detonate a ICBM-ready hydrogen bomb, far stronger than an atomic bomb and its largest nuclear explosion ever. Putin warned that the U.S. and North Korea were “on the brink of a large-scale conflict.” Trump is determined either to blow hot air for his supporters or produce nuclear conflict among the US, Russia and China.

While South Korea is calling for a strong response, Trump intends to terminate trade with South Korea, attacking South Korea more that the hot air Trump sends to North Korea.

September 2: It is already legendary that Trump lies about all things important. His Dept. of Justice officially concluded in a court submission that Trump lied about his March charge that Obama wire tapped Trump Tower. It didn't happen. Of course, we already knew that, regardless of all the lies from Trump that he would produce evidence. (for years, Trump bragged that he would produce evidence for his lie that Obama was born in Kenya as a Muslim)

August 31: Trump is very pleased. When a white women was pulled over by a Georgia cop and expressed worry about being shot, the cop said don't worry, "But you’re not black. Remember, we only kill black people." The cop's lawyer argues that the cop's statement was taken out of context. What context is proper where a cop assures a white women that cops only kill black people during traffic stops?

August 31: Trump fired FBI Director James Comey May 9, producing a fraudulent letter from Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who since announced that he did not recommend firing Comey and it was wrong for Trump to use his letter to validate Trump's illicit decision, reached days if not months before Rosenstein's letter. Trump had written his reasons, which combined with a seminal TV interview, established Trump's obstruction of justice: fire Comey to derail FBI investigation of his treasonous collaboration with Russia to win the election. The White House chief counsel conspired with Trump to produce a letter falsely justifying Comey's firing, blaming Trump's firing of Comey on Hillary Clinton. A preposterous lie compounding Trump's obstruction of justice. Special Counsel Robert Mueller has Trump's original letter rationalizing Comey's firing, the one that White House chief counsel said was "problematic" and conspired with Trump to produce a less obvious obstruction of justice.

August 30: Trump trying to bribe Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa to derail Senate Judicial Committee investigation of Trump, saying he wants Iowa ethanol gas. Quit pro quo. Obstruction of justice.

August 30: A majority of voters believe Trump is tearing the country apart, according to a new Fox News poll released Wednesday. His goal, break the US with partners from Russia, neo-Nazi, the KKK and white supremacists. 70% said that Trump hates the news media more than he hates white supremacists. 69% of Republicans agree with Trump.

Non-racist non-treason Trump supporters describe Trump as "dishonest," "narcissistic," "off-the-scale," "an abject disappointment," "contemptible" and "unbelievable." The presidency is about him and not us. Break America at all cost.

August 29: Not able to curtail his TV show, Trump's visit to Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey turned into a campaign event. He's the greatest doing the greatest job ever to solve the greatest natural catastrophe ever. All false of course. He brought along his Cabinet to again praise him for a non-job well done. Trump did not allow the FEMA Director to speak, the one actually in charge of the federal government effort. No upstaging for Trump allowed. Trump boasted that the small crowd for his empty speech was a big turnout. Notably, not one word from Trump for the millions of Texans struggling to deal with their devastation. Zero empathy for others, especially those in need. For Trump, everything is about Trump.

Like most things in which he claims to be the world's leading expert, Trump is clueless about drug abuse. The major drug problem in the US is addictive prescription opioids sold by the US pharmaceutical industry. Trump says this problem will be fixed with a Trump wall between the US and Mexico paid for by US taxpayers. The wall is a placebo.

August 28: Sheriff Joe Arpaio is best know for mass violations of the US Constitution and mass violations of a judges order to stop, for which he was convicted. Trump said in front of the world today that he applauded Arpaio's life of crime and disregard for the court, 2 of Trump's own traits. And, Trump and Arpaio were the biggest conspiracy theorists against Obama, claiming, contrary to all evidence, that Obama was born in Kenya as a Muslim and not the US, thereby an illicity US President for 8 years.

August 28: Trump says Russia is not a security threat. Russian money and influence talks.

August 28: Trump bragged that he pardoned convicted Sheriff Joe Arpaio during a weather catastrophe (Hurricane Harvey, which has already killed 8 and caused property and business losses in the billions) because the TV ratings would be high. He wanted to reach, as many and as efficiently as possible, his white supremacist, KKK and neo-Nazi partners. Grinning ear to ear with Trump they are. Trump is steering the US toward the most racist country on earth and more racist than the US has ever been. Trump likes to set records, good, bad or ugly.

August 28: "He's just like he is on TV," Republican Representative Dunncan Hunter said to a gathering with the Riverside County, CA Young Republicans. "He's an asshole, but he's our asshole."

August 28: A criminal business associate, Felix Slater, of Trump in 2015 told Trump's longtime lawyer that he would enlist Russian President Vladimir Putin in a proposed real estate deal that he boasted would help Trump win the presidency, according to emails. "I will get Putin on this program and we will get Donald elected," Sater wrote on Nov. 3, 2015, almost exactly a year before Election Day. "Our boy can become president of the USA and we can engineer it. I will get all of Putin's team to buy in on this, I will manage this process." Trump was fully aware of this 'doing business', discussing often with his lawyer and signing authorizing documents.

August 28: Granstander Trump on his way to Texas to squeeze what he can from the disaster. Over the weekend, he used the disaster to sell books and attack Democrats.

August 28: To encourage police threats, brutality and violent confrontation against citizens Trump is sending military war equipment and guns to civilian law enforcement agencies. He want to make our streets and neighborhoods look like war zones. More fear, more Trump.

August 28: Trump tried to open a Trump Tower in Moscow during the 2016 campaign.

August 28: Using racist and Russian government goals, Trump is dividing and breaking America. The military has noticed. Secretary of Defense James Mattis told a group of young troops to "just hold the line until our country gets back to understanding and respecting each other. You're a great example for our country right now and it's got problems. You know it and I know it. It's got problems we don't have in the military. And you just hold the line, my fine soldiers, and sailors and airmen and Marines."

August 28: 15 days ago, Heather Heyer was murdered while protesting racism. Trump called HER violent and Trump supporters said her murder at the hands of a white supremacist Trump supporter was more than justified and insists that the statues of Robert E. Lee was hornorable and necessary to keep. Last night, the descendant of Lee, Pastor Robert Lee, said NO. "I call on all of us with privilege and power to confront racism and white supremacy head-on." Nevertheless, Trump prefers racism and its supporters for him.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday said Trump “speaks for himself” in his wavering response to violence that erupted at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. No responsible American agrees with Trump's embrace of white supremacists.

We are watching what happens when a criminal is put in charge of the White House. Defense lawyers, twisted defenses, breaking limits, divide and conquer, passing blame, undermining government, bravado, threats, media games, name calling, diversions, lack of real evidence, nepotism and profiteering – all at taxpayer expense.

August 28: Because he is a bigot, Trump has banned LGBT citizens from the military over the objections of the entire military leadership because the LGBT community has served honorably. And, from a legal standpoint, the military can’t create special rules that limit people’s service or that treats them in ways that limit their opportunities just because of who they are. More lawsuits against Trump on the way, already the most sued and protested president in history, stemming from his assault on liberty, national security, minorities, the rule of law, health and the environment, workers and the Constitution in favor of white supremacists, the KKK, neo-Nazis, the wealthy and Russia.

August 27: As demonstrators protested against Trump's white supremacists, neo-Nazis and KKK two weeks ago in Charlottesville, where a white supremacist murdered one and injured 20, another white supremacist in a bulletproof vest turned, pointed a pistol toward the crowd and fired a single shot at the ground, in the direction of a black man. A dozen police did nothing, following Trump's encouragement of police brutality. (finally, yesterday, unable to deny the video, the shooter was arrested)

(Trump) Soils his office, stains our national honor, divides the American people and betrays the sacrifices of the Americans who came before us. (Steve Schmidt)

An illicit pardon from criminal acts is Trump's backup plan to obstruction of justice, especially when the criminal and/or treasonous acts involve police brutality and racism and Putin collusion to break America.

August 27: A con artist at work. Employees, promised to be paid $200-400/month, at a golf course owned by Trump go weeks or months without pay in brutal desert conditions. Trump has personally made $2 million to $10 million from the course.

August 26: Another Trump-Putin collaboration to break America for Russia. Russia’s army of media influencers, social media bots and trolls has increasingly amplified alt-right and far-right narratives in the United States since the 2016 presidential election (Trump elevated the alt right KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists). Moscow’s aim is widely viewed as exploiting divides and sowing distrust of democratic institutions, the latter a conclusion reached by the U.S. intelligence community in its initial investigation of Russia’s interference in the presidential election, including overt efforts to push propaganda. Promoting content that is divisive is the ultimate goal.

August 26: Yet another Trump obstruction of justice. Illegally, Trump asked the US Dept. of Justice to stop a criminal prosecution against Sheriff Joe Arpaio a few months ago. DOJ refused, so Trump pardoned the racist sheriff upon conviction BUT in violation of all precedent and rules (When Trump ordered FBI Director James Comey to stop criminal investigation of Michael Flynn, Trump fired comey when Comey refused.)

Taxpayers paid more than $140 million so far to settle & litigate 13,000+ claims of Arpaio staff abuses, deaths in custody, 1993-2016.

August 26: Arizona's largest newspaper issued a scathing rebuke of Trump's decision to pardon former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Friday, calling the action an "insult" and a "slap to the Latino community." "The vast majority of Latinos in Arizona are not undocumented, yet they all fell under heightened scrutiny as Arpaio honed his image," the editorial reads. Arpaio was found guilty of racially profiling Latinos, and was convicted last month of criminal contempt for disobeying a judge's order to stop the practice. "By pardoning Arpaio, Trump made it clear that institutional racism is not just OK with him. It is a goal," the publication's editorial board wrote.

August 26: Over a thousand religious leaders from various faiths will gather in Washington, D.C., on Monday to protest President Trump's moral leadership.

Augurst 26: "The March to Confront White Supremacy" is set to start a 10-day march from Charlottesville, Virginia to Washington, D.C. on Monday to confront white supremacy and demand Trump's removal from office. "This is the time to confront white supremacy in our government and throughout our history. We demand that President Trump to be removed from office for allying himself with this ideology of hate and we demand an agenda that repairs the damage it's done to our country and its people."

Quiz: Trump resembles: a. George Washington, b. Abraham Lincoln, c. Ronald Reagan, d. Kim Jong-Un, e. Adolf Hitler (there are 2 answers)

The KKK may elect Trump its Grand Wizard. It's party time for racists, white supremacists and neo-Nazis, their goals now official US policy under Trump for the world community to observe and Amercans to suffer.

August 25: Proving that he is a racist and determined to encourage racism and extend his obstruction of justice, Trump pardoned an extreme racist sheriff, Joe Arpaio, convicted of contempt of court for breaking the law over and over by terrorizing and imprisoning people that looked Latino, whether or not they had committed an actual crime. Their crime was that they LOOKED Latino. Trump claimed that Arpaio was "just doing his job" in pursuit of these hate crimes. Cowardly, Trump broke all precedent and rules to issue this pardon, coincidentally! with the arrival of a Category 4 hurricane on the gulf coast of Texas threatening millions of lives, businesses and properties (for them all Trump could say is "good luck"). Under Trump, the rule of law be damned in favor of division and crimes against Latinos, African-Americans and Muslims. Just as he did last week exonerating the KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacy, Trump now exonerates police racism (just 2 weeks ago, Trump encouraged police brutality). No wonder racists rejoice with Trump and his lack of humanity, endorsing and encouraging racism as US policy. The world and history are watching. Shame on the US.

"Arpaio was convicted of defying court order to stop violating 4th Amendment. It's a pardon of a govt official who ignored Bill of Rights." (Republican Representative Justin Amash)

"Pardon for Sheriff who specialized in tormenting immigrants." (Republican Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen)

"Mr. Arpaio was found guilty of criminal contempt for continuing to illegally profile Latinos living in Arizona based on their perceived immigration status in violation of a judge's orders. ...doing so (Trump's pardon) at this time undermines his claim for the respect of rule of law as Mr. Arpaio has shown no remorse for his actions." (Republican Senator John McCain)

"With his pardon pen, POTUS reveals his own contempt for our Constitution, our courts, and our founding principles of equality and justice." (Sally Yates, fired by Trump as Director of the Dept. of Justice for warning him about Michael Flynn treason)

"The speaker does not agree with the decision," Paul Ryan's spokesman Doug Andres told The Wall Street Journal. "Law-enforcement officials have a special responsibility to respect the rights of everyone in the United States. We should not allow anyone to believe that responsibility is diminished by this pardon."

"Arpaio action was appalling & political. It also sends message to witnesses in Russia investigation to keep quiet, stay loyal & get pardon." (Representative Adam Schiff)

Concurrently, Trump is removing environmental, labor and health protections for all.

Ongoing proof of Trump's incompetence and instability, and his greenlighiting racism. Longterm damage to the Republican Party.

August 25: In honor of our past and belief in our future, for the sake of our party and our nation, we Republicans must disassociate ourselves from Trump by expressing our opposition to his divisive tactics and by clearly and strongly insisting that he does not represent what it means to be a Republican. (Former Republican Senator John Danforth)

August 25: "This administration (ie, Trump) can and must do better in consistently and unequivocally condemning these groups and do everything we can to heal the deep divisions that exist in our communities. I have come under enormous pressure both to resign and to remain in my current position. As a patriotic American, I am reluctant to leave my post . . . because I feel a duty to fulfill my commitment to work on behalf of the American people. But I also feel compelled to voice my distress over the events of the last two weeks. Citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Please use the sharing tools found via the email icon at the top of articles. As a Jewish American, I will not allow neo-Nazis ranting ‘Jews will not replace us’ to cause this Jew to leave his job. I feel deep empathy for all who have been targeted by these hate groups. We must all unite together against them." (Gary Cohn, White House Economic Advisor) Trump's next attack victim?

August 25: The Secret Service spent $7,100 on luxury portable toilets to be used during Trump’s “working vacation” at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf club earlier this month

August 25: Proving that Republican Senator Bob Corker was right to say that Trump was incompetent and unstable, Trump twitter attacked Corker today.

August 24: Rather than do his job, Trump watches TV and attacks people. Today's attack list: McConnell, Ryan, Corker, Obama, Clapper. Trump is especially obsessed with Obama because he knows he will never compare favorably (Trump tweeted a picture today showing him 'eclipsing' Obama, missing the point that the moon eclipse this week darkened the world from the glory and life force of the sun, just as his is doing). Trump is a clown show.

August 24: Trump says that former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is a liar. False of course. There should be prizes for anyone that can find something Trump said is true.

August 24: No one is better at exposing the Trump for the hateful fraud that he is than Trump himself. Two days ago, Trump bragged, "I got the “white supremacists,” the “neo-Nazi”—I got ‘em all in there. Let’s see: Yeah. “KKK.” We have “KKK.” I got ‘em all." Trump is the best thing these racists ever had other than slavery itself.

Trump is a sociopath. Sociopaths are usually extremely charming and charismatic. Sociopaths oftentimes feel entitled to certain positions, people and things. They believe their own beliefs and opinions are the absolute authority and disregard others. Untruthfulness and insincerity. Lack of remorse and shame. Unreliability. Poor judgment and failure to learn by experience. Pathologic egocentricity. Callous unconcern for the feelings of others. Gross and persistent attitude of irresponsibility and disregard for social norms, and obligations. Very low tolerance to frustration, a low threshold for discharge of aggression, including violence. Markedly prone to blame others or to offer plausible rationalization for the behavior that has brought the person into conflict with society. Deception, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure. Impulsiveness or failure to plan ahead. Lack of remorse as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another. Trump traits to a T.

A VP candidate considered by Trump, Republican Senator Bob Corker says Trump is incompetent and unstable. So does the former Director of National Intelligence.

August 23: Because they are not bending to his will, Trump claims that the Republican Senate is wasting time.

August 23: Always a pervert. Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said her “skin crawled” during last year’s second presidential debate, a reaction to Donald Trump standing ominously near her as she delivered answers before a national audience. “This is not OK, I thought. It was the second presidential debate and Donald Trump was looming behind me. Two days before, the world heard him brag about groping women. Now we were on a small stage and no matter where I walked, he followed me closely, staring at me, making faces. It was incredibly uncomfortable. He was literally breathing down my neck. My skin crawled. It was one of those moments where you wish you could hit pause and ask everyone watching, well, what would you do? Do you stay calm, keep smiling and carry on as if he weren’t repeatedly invading your space? Or do you turn, look him in the eye and say loudly and clearly, ‘back up you creep, get away from me. I know you love to intimidate women but you can’t intimidate me, so back up.’”

Trump has abdicated the presidency envisioned by the founding of this country, particularly his duty to the Constitution. He praises of slavery and reaches for white supremacy and Nazism, seeking to redirect American culture. He has delegated national security to the military. His White House is run by 3 generals, who he called fools during the campaign, and shame on them for supporting Trump's mission to destroy America. To Trump, the US media is more dangerous than nuclear war, terrorism and white supremacy. Darkness over America.

August 22: Trump just showed in his Arizona rampage why even Republicans question whether he has the temperament and the capacity to serve as President. In an incredible performance at a raucous Arizona rally Tuesday, Trump rewrote the history of his response to violence in Charlottesville and reignited the culture wars. Throwing gasoline onto political controversies, Trump threatened to shut down the government unless Congress funds his border wall and all but promised a pardon for Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of contempt of court in a case related to racial profiling. He criticized Sen. John McCain, who is battling cancer (a Trump supporter wants him dead), and turned on GOP senators he blames for his paltry legislative record. He made fun of Arizona's other Republican Senator, Jeff Flake. Trump alleged that those who do not praise confederate traitors are taking away his preferred culture and heritage of slavery and white supremacy.

James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence, said he questioned President Donald Trump's fitness for office. Clapper said he found the President's rally "downright scary and disturbing." Clapper denounced Trump's "behavior and divisiveness and complete intellectual, moral and ethical void. I question his fitness to be in office."

August 22: Trump wants and needs white supremacy and is fighting to save statues celebrating racism, slavery and secession from the US to form a white-only country. He longs for the confederacy and it symbols, admirers of which form his core supporters.

August 22: Trump has already lost several of his advisory councils. Today, several members of his infrastructure council quit. The others cannot be far behind. Trump is a loser.

August 22: Over the past month, Trump threatened nuclear war with North Korea, flirted with military action in Venezuela, equated neo-Nazis and white supremacists with the anti-racist activists who protest them, thanked foreign adversary Russia for expelling U.S. diplomats, turned a Boy Scout jamboree into something resembling a fascist youth rally, banned transgender military personnel without informing the Pentagon – and more, as these are but a few plots of this four-week disaster miniseries filled with loathsome yet expendable players. (Remember the Mooch?)

August 22: Senator Mitch McConnell doubts whether Trump can function, recover from a series of blunders, support important Republicans, lead the party through the 2018 elections or save the presidency. The last time they spoke, August 9, Trump and McConnell devolved into a profane yelling match. During that conversation, attempting to obstruct justice, accused McConnell of refusing to protect him from ongoing investigations into Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow.

August 22: National security adviser H.R. McMaster showed Trump a photo of Afghan women in miniskirts from 1972 in an effort to convince him to keep U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Young women are a sure fire way to influence Trump. Grab them he will.

August 22: Everyone is on high alert for Trump's KKK rally tonight in Phoenix. Arizona's Republican Governor and 2 Republican Senators will not attend. The Mayor of Phoenix, who did not believe the rally to be appropriate because of its danger, pleaded for calm.

August 21: Trump announced his bold new strategy to win the war in Afghanistan (that Congress will not declare is a war). It's simple. The strategy: win. He will go to war in Pakistan, make India pay for it and ready US nuclear weapons. And, delegate the war to the military, let them figure it out. And enrichen the military business with unending war. Of course, Trump whined, blaming an unfair mess on everyone else, making him deal with it. Trump's vague new plan to continue the old plan will embolden Russia, China, North Korea and terrorists. But, Trump says his win will be fast, trust him, the guy, like generations of previous snake oil salesmen, that lies about everything.

Notably, Trump did a major flip-flop. For a decade, Trump railed against the war, saying it was nonsense. Never mind the 9/11 attack (with Trump supporters believe was either fake or caused by President George Bush). Now, Trump wants a permanent war, and new ones. It's good for business.

August 21: The Trump effect. 9% of Americans said holding neo-Nazi or white supremacist views is acceptable. Shame.

August 21: Trump is a moron. He watched the solar eclipse without eye protection. If children mimicked Trump, millions would be blind.

August 21: Trump chose Sam Clovis to run Department of Agriculture because he believes that LGBT protections will lead to legalizing pedophilia.

August 21: Following Trump's gross mismanagement of the military, the Navy announced an operational pause! 2 Navy vessel crashes that killed sailors in 2 months.

August 21: Bill O'Reily says that Trump doesn't understand who the Nazis were. Didn't his Jewish daughter and son-and-law teach him anything?

August 21: Trump supporters love fake news. The latest: they claim that Obama orchestrated the white supremacist/KKK/neo-Nazi rally to damage Trump. Funny how none of the racist protesters knew that.

August 21: Steve Bannon's Breitbart, "We’re prepared to help Paul Ryan rally votes for (Trump's) impeachment."

August 21: Trump fired his commission on climate change. Punishment after agreeing with thousands of experts and every country that climate change is real. Trump calls it fake news....based on his vast ignorance, which Trump thinks makes him an expert beyond real experts.

August 21: A group of alumni from one of the country's most influential evangelical Christian universities, Liberty University, is condemning their school's president for his continued alignment with President Trump, an proven racist. The alumni are returning their diplomas. Chris Gaumer, a former Student Government Association president and 2006 graduate, said it was a simple decision. I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists," Gaumer said. "And in defending the president's comments, Jerry Falwell Jr. is making himself and, it seems to me, the university he represents, complicit."

August 21: The Secret Service is nearing its spending limit for protecting President Trump and his family, the agency's director told USA Today. The increased spending is due in part to Trump's frequent travel from the White House to his properties along the East coast. Trump's family also is a factor. "The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,'' Alles told the newspaper. "I can't change that. I have no flexibility.'' Earlier this year, the Secret Service requested $60 million budget increase to cover Trump's protection costs. The Secret Service protects 42 members of the Trump administration, according to USA Today, including 18 members of the president's family. Thirty one people were protected during the Obama administration, by comparison.

August 21: If you don't know where you are going any road will get you there. So, Trump will announce an increase in soldiers sent to America's longest and most futile war, sending more to their death. Afghanistan. Apparently not winnable, now there for 16 years. He will ask Americans to trust him, the world's greatest liar, saying for years that the US should abandon Afghanistan (and let the Taliban and ISIS take over).

Under Trump, the navy had its second crash between a large war vessel and a merchant vessel, this time an oil tanker. Nevertheless, Trump brags about how great his has made the military, whose generals Trump despises. All Trump could say about the 10 mission sailors in this crash is, "that's too bad." (Breitbard blamed National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster)

Mostly, this is a Trump diversion from his Russia collusion, failures in congress, losing so many of his advisory panels and encouragement of white supremacists, the KKK and ne-Nazis.

August 20: Steve Bannon's war to help Trump found its first adversary, National Security Advisor General H. R. McMaster. Bannon claims that McMaster supports Islamic Terrorism.

August 20: Steve Bannon. "If the Republican Party on Capitol Hill gets behind the president on his plans and not theirs, it will all be sweetness and light, be one big happy family. No administration in history has been so divided among itself about the direction about where it should go."

August 19: Trump calls on America to submit to his racism or be divided. He announced via tweet, "Our great country has been divided for decade, but it will come together again. Sometimes protest is needed in order to heel, and heel we will!" Later, he released 3 similar tweets, confirming his vision. Just a days ago, Trump told us he wants an undivided country under racists, the KKK and white supremacists. Everyone else must heel.

August 19: We should recognize that it is entirely unprecedented to have a sitting president become so toxic that corporate America feels unable to publicly associate with him. (Talking Points Memo)

Many Republicans see that Trump has caused serious damage to their party. Trump has set back by years efforts to make the GOP more appealing to an increasingly diverse American electorate.

Trump is the Russian Trojan horse, using Trump to degrade the United States into a dysfunctional racist state. 

August 19: A few dozen racists gathered in Boston. BUT, 40,000 protesting their hate showed up. Bravo. Trump encourages BOTH. In one case to spew hate and embolden racists, ie Make America Great Again. In the other case, to protest the racist country he wants, the Make America Great Again. Never have so many protested a US President who sells and relies on racism.

"I want to thank all the people that came out to there that message of love, not hate," Mayor Marty Walsh said. "To fight back on racism, to fight back on anti-Semitism, to fight back on the supremacists that were coming to our city, on the Nazis that were coming to our city." Boston's Police Commissioner William Evans said, "99.9% of the people here were here for the right reason, and that's to fight bigotry and hate for the most part here today." Police joined those marching for peace, reciting "Boston strong."

Trump's response to the peaceful rally in Boston, "Looks like many anti-police agitators in Boston." No slapping comment against the racists who gathered for Trump to divide the US into a white nation and dirty place for everyone else. Trump prefers to see the KKK, white supremacists and neo-nazis spewing hate, carrying his campaign signs and pledging their allegiance to him.

August 19: Leadership of the Kennedy Center are thankful the KKK/neo-Nazi sympathizer Trump will not attend the Kennedy Center Honors celebration. Trump has convinced with his socially divisive and morally caustic rhetorical at least 2 of the honorees not to attend.

Trump would have been booed, only making him publish a racist tweet.

August 19: From Republican Senator Ben Sasse, "White supremacy and racism are un-American, period. The heartbreak in Charlottesville was the fault of the ‎white supremacists. Heather Heyer was murdered by an act of terrorism. The driver used his car to target public marchers. I expect that violence will come when white supremacists and the alt-right fight anarchist groups aligned with the extreme left. ‎What will happen next? I doubt that Donald Trump will be able to calm and comfort the nation in that moment. He (and lots of others) will probably tell an awful combination of partial truths and outright falsehoods. On top of the trust deficits that are already baked so deeply in, unity will be very hard to come by. Besides ability and temperament, I also worry that national unity will be unlikely because there are some whispering in the President's ear that racial division could be good politics for them. Bizarrely, many on the center-left seem not to see that there is little that some on the President's team would love more than to transform this into a fight about historical monuments. I wish more folks understood how many of the monuments now being debated are not really from the post-Civil War period as a way to remember war dead. Rather, contrary to popular understanding, many of these statues were explicitly erected as Segregation Monuments in the twentieth century, during Jim Crow, as a way of shouting – against the American Idea – that public spaces were to be whites-only spaces. Tragically, many of these monuments were erected exactly when lynchings of black Americans were being celebrated in those communities – and the timing overlap here was not accidental. (It's also worth noting that Gen. Robert E. Lee had opposed erecting Confederate Memorials because he worried, wisely, that they would become scabs of bitterness to be endlessly picked at.) The white supremacists from Charlottesville now feel emboldened. They’re headed to another city sometime soon – with the express purpose of spreading their hateful rhetoric and inciting violence. This is the most attention they've received in years. It feels like violence is coming. I'm not sure if this moment is like the summer of '67 or not. But it might be. Before that violence strikes again, it’s up to us to reaffirm that exceptional American Creed again today, with our neighbors, and in our kids' hearts."

Bravo Senator Sasse. There is no true equivalence between groups hating non-whites and Jews AND groups protesting the hate. No matter what Trump is trying to sell you.

August 18: Rush Limbaugh says. "America is under attack from within. Our culture, our history, our founding are under the most direct assault I have seen in my life. You might even get away with saying that we are on the cusp of a second civil war." (Limbaugh blames Democrats though, rather than Trump and his encouragement of white supremacy, re-enacting the cause of the first civil war.)

Trump, elected with Russia, will go down in history as the genesis of this civil war, During the campaign, he claimed that if he had lost there would have been a civil war only he could stop.

August 18: Trump's brain is free. A couple hours after being fired, Steve Bannon said, "The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over. I feel jacked up. Now I’m free. I’ve got my hands back on my weapons. Someone said, ‘it’s Bannon the Barbarian.’ I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There’s no doubt. I built a fucking machine at Breitbart. And now I’m about to go back, knowing what I know, and we’re about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do."

It's now war against the Republican establishment, inside and outside the White House. Jared Kushner, H. R. McMaster and John Kelly, Gary Cohn, Trump's Cabinet, House/Senate moderate Republicans his key targets. Bannon is Executive Chairman of Breitbart again and is on the war path, no prisoners, only bodies. You are all about to be stabbed in the back.

Right-wing bloggers have promised to release tons of opposition research against the White House. And, Bannon promised a few months ago to bring down the "administrative state." IE, government. A few days ago, Bannon met with billionaire Robert Mercer to bankroll his war machine.

The Game of Thrones is here.

August 18: The pastor of a New York megachurch said that he has resigned from Trump's Evangelical Advisory Board, citing "a deepening conflict in values" with the administration. 

August 18: Billionaire investor Carl Icahn stepped down as a special adviser to President Trump on regulatory reform. Trump sole Icahn as the savior of the economy and ultimate fix to China, both false of course. A lot of jumping away from Trump this week.

August 18: Members of a Department of Commerce committee called the Digital Economy Board of Advisors have turned in their resignations after President Trump’s defense of white supremacists in Charlottesville.

August 18: The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights condemned Trump.

August 18: Trump amputated his brain today, firing Steve Bannon. Stock market traders cheered. Now, Trump needs to fire himself.

August 18: All members of Trump's Art Council, an official government agency, quit and called on Trump to resign. Anyone with integrity would quit, including his toy generals in the White House John Kelly and H. R. McMaster.

August 18: In addition to his advisory councils and his Joint Chiefs of Staff, many in Trump's cybersecurity resource have departed from Trump, resigning. Yet another way Trump is putting the US at risk.

August 18: Mit Romney speaks out about Trump. "What he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn. His apologists strain to explain that he didn't mean what we heard. But what we heard is now the reality, and unless it is addressed by the president as such, with unprecedented candor and strength, there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric. The leaders of our branches of military service have spoken immediately and forcefully, repudiating the implications of the president's words. Why? In part because the morale and commitment of our forces--made up and sustained by men and women of all races--could be in the balance. Our allies around the world are stunned and our enemies celebrate; America's ability to help secure a peaceful and prosperous world is diminished. And who would want to come to the aid of a country they perceive as racist if ever the need were to arise, as it did after 9/11? This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children. They are watching, our soldiers are watching, the world is watching. Mr. President, act now for the good of the country."

August 18: Trump's brain, Steve Bannon, said, "accusing President Donald Trump of sympathizing with white supremacist groups will, in the long run, play to his political advantage." Sickening and anti-American.

Congratulations America. Now that Trump is promoting racism, the KKK and white supremacy, statues to confederate 'heroes', enemies of the United States as is Trump, are being removed.

August 18: Major charities have canceled their events at Trump's White House business in Palm Beach. The Cleveland Clinic, American Cancer Society, American Friends of Magen David, American Red Cross, Salvation Army, United Way, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the city of Palm Beach and more.

August 18: Heather Heyer's mother, "I have not and now I will not, I'm not talking to the president now. I'm sorry, after what he said about my child. It's not that I saw somebody else's tweets about him. I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protesters, like Ms. Heyer, with the KKK and the white supremacists. You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying 'I'm sorry.' I'm not forgiving for that."

Now his partners in crime are threatening to kill Heather's mother. The white supremacist Trump is an ugly stain on America. Shame on his supporters, particularly those in Congress.

August 17: James Murdoch, the CEO of 21st Century Fox, parent of Fox News strongly attacked Trump's egregious response to violence in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend, also pledging a $1 million donation to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). "These events remind us all why vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation - a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals. The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob. I can't even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Clansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so."

Heather Heyer, whose terrorist murder was caused and justified by white supremacist Trump supporters at a Trump rally to promote white supremacy, is already having a great effect – the removal of statues venerating US traitors who went to war against the US. Trump's racist effort to to save these statues for his supporters to inspire their treachery will fail.

Now that white supremacists killed Heather Heyer, they are threatening to kill her mother.

August 17: Worth repetition, Trump Lacks ‘Stability’ and ‘Competence’ for Job, Corker Says. Foreign Relations chairman warns of ‘great peril’ unless Trump changes. "The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful. He also, recently, has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation,” Corker added, apparently referring to the recent racially tinged violence in Charlottesville, Va. “He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today. … And without the things that I just mentioned happening, our nation is going to go through great peril. And anything that’s done to incite or cause a movement — white supremacy group, KKK, neo-Nazi group — anything that’s said to make them feel that their standing in our nation is enhanced is repugnant."

Senator Lindsay Graham, "Because of the manner in which you have handled the Charlottesville tragedy, you are now receiving praise from some of the most racist and hate-filled individuals and groups in our country. For the sake of our nation -- as our President -- please fix this. History is watching all of us."

Trump is at war with Republican Senators and is supporting their electoral defeat.

August 17: Republican Senator Tim Scott: "“I’m not going to defend the indefensible…[Trump’s] comments on Monday were strong (but they were prepared by someone else and read by Trump under pressure). His comments on Tuesday started erasing the comments that were strong. What we want to see from our president is clarity and moral authority. And that moral authority is compromised when Tuesday happened. There’s no question about that. Racism is real. It is alive. It is here. But the response from the vast majority of this country is diametrically opposite of the response in the ’60s. We’ve had the United States military, generals, leaders, standing up and rejecting, completely, racism.”

August 17: To change the Trump game about white supremacy, Trump saying all the controversy is about statues loved by white supremacists, the KKK and racists and that these statues are equivalent to those of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln. Facts show Trump wrong again.

The racist statues that Trump is trying to save represent traitors to the US, representing leaders that went to war against the US after their states seceded from the US to keep slavery.

August 17: So many are jumping ship that Trump fired his Infrastructure Council, once claimed to be the greatest. Members: Dept. of Homeland Security, American Public Health Association, Heartland Payment Systems, White House Office of Science and Technology, Xcel Energy, International Association of Fire Chiefs, MGM Resorts, Cisco Energy, National Security Council and more.

August 17: Corker: Trump hasn't demonstrated the stability or competence to be successful. Sen. Bob Corker slammed President Donald Trump's handling of the racially motivated protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, charging that the President "has not demonstrated he understands the character of this nation.""The President has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to be successful. He has not demonstrated that he understands what has made this nation great and what it is today, and he's got to demonstrate the characteristics of a president who understands that," Corker said. (CNN)

August 17: Despicable Trump is awake. When a US white supremacist terrorist murders a young woman, Trump says they are "fine people. Elsewhere, like in Barcelona's terrorist attack today, Trump wants to immediately shoot the terrorist in custody with bullets soaked in pig blood. He bases his insane plan on an Internet hoax claiming that General Pershing killed fake-Muslim terrorists that way 1909-1913 in the Philippines, and this rid the world of these terrorists for 35 years (during the campaign, Trump claimed 25 years). More Trump fake news, this one barbaric. A President of the United States wants to kill suspects, unless they are white supremacists, with bullets dipped in pig blood! Respect for America dropping fast.

Trumps glorification of his desired atrocities against Muslims, WAR CRIMES, is yet another PRO-ISIS strategy.

In fact, Pershing was known for being more enlightened and more successful. In “The Savage Wars of Peace: Small Wars and the Rise of American Power,” “Captain Pershing preferred to win over the Moros with outstretched hand rather than mailed fist. So successful was his campaign that he was made a datto, or chieftain.”

August 17: Steve Bannon, aka President Bannon or Trump's brain, unloaded on Trump. TRUMP IS A FOOL. “In Kim (North Korea), Trump has met his match,” I wrote. “The risk of two arrogant fools blundering into a nuclear exchange is more serious than at any time since October 1962. “There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.” Regarding the Secretaries of State and Defense, “Oh, they’re wetting themselves. I’m changing out people at East Asian Defense; I’m getting hawks in. I’m getting Susan Thornton [acting head of East Asian and Pacific Affairs] out at State.”

August 16: In addition to the military leaving Trump, so are the largest companies in the US. Blackstone, IBM, Aetna, Apple, Pepsi, Walmart, JP Morgan, GM, EY, BlackRock, Tesla, GE, Patomak, Global Infrastructure, Cleveland Clinic, Boeing, Boston Consulting Group, Harris, Dell, Nucor, Whirlpool, Ford, Merck, Johnson & Johnson, Intel, Corning, Under Armour, AAFL-CIO, 3, International Paper, Corning, Caterpillar, Campbell, US Steel, Dow Chemical, United Technologies, Lockheed Martin, Ford and many more. Trump is weak and a loser.

August 16: Mayor of Phoenix, AZ wants Trump to delay his racist rally there.

August 16: Through his top criminal defense lawyer, Trump informed the media via email that there is no difference between President George Washington and General Robert E. Lee who led war against the United States. Trump is anti-American to the core.

August 16: Unprecedented. The Joint Chiefs of Staff, top generals for the Army, Air Force, Marines and Navy and National Guard AND the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs AND the Secretary of Defense, denounced Trump's racism, extremism and hatred. No place for them in the military.

Trump has turned the White House into a white supremacist propaganda machine. Trump's plan: trickle down racism.

August 16: From the former CIA Director John Brennan to CNN's Wolf Blitzer. "Just watched your interview with Senator Blumenthal when you mentioned that you lost all four of your grandparents to the unspeakable evil of Nazism. I just want to extend my sympathies not only for their deaths but also to you and your family--and countless others--for the pain inflicted today by the despicable words of Donald Trump. Mr. Trump's words, and the beliefs they reflect, are a national disgrace, and all Americans of conscience need to repudiate his ugly and dangerous comments. If allowed to continue along this senseless path, Mr. Trump will do lasting harm to American society and to our standing in the world. By his words and his actions, Mr. Trump is putting our national security and our collective futures at grave risk."

August 16: Only the VA Secretary has spoken out. "It is a dishonor to our country's veterans to allow the Nazis and the white supremacists to go unchallenged,"David Shulkin said. "And I am strongly against them, and I believe that we have to all speak up as Americans." Thousands of other Trump employees associate themselves with Trump's racism, white supremacy and neo-Nazism. Don't they see how racist politicians of the past and the 1930s/1940s Nazis are treated by history?

August 16: Daily, Trump's illegitimacy increases. He claimed that he was the world's best business man and he knew how to negotiate. Today, he disbanded two of his advisory councils that he touted the most, the Strategic and Policy Forum and the Manufacturing Council. Their CEOs of the top US companies were leaving because of Trump's incompetence and racism. So, he quit all of them.

August 16: Web site behind white supremacy rally in Charlottesville was kicked out by Godaddy and Google. But, it found a home with another Trump partner, Russia. Putin playing Trump like a fiddle.

"If you are not outraged you are not paying attention." (Heather Heyer, murdered by Trump supporter to silence her protest against white supremacy)

August 16: A white supremacist said today that Trump would solve the racial divide. He would separate the races into different locations, division solved by separation. An ISIS like state within the US! Other white supremacists are more thorough, they say to kill every non-white.

Another Trump supporter. A judge in Georgia has been suspended for Facebook posts in which he compared protesters of Confederate statues to members of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

August 16: Public figures in Israel, Germany, the United Kingdom and elsewhere have condemned President Donald Trump's latest remarks on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

August 16: Heather Heyer, the 32 year old women murdered August 12 by a white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia because she protested againsts white supremacy, is buried today. Trump has yet to reach out to her family. Plese think about it, a young woman was murdered by a Trump supporter and Trump defends what the young womon was protesting against, white supremacy. She is gone. No pro-life sentiment for her from Trump.

HISTORY IS RECORDING TRUMP'S TRAVESTY AND WILL SHAME ALL THOSE WHO SUPPORTED IT

To Trump and his supporters America's founding ideals are a grand conspiracy that must be replaced by white supremacy and Nazism, the meaning behind Make America Great Again. To Trump, they are patriots. It is the "blacks" and Muslims who are terrorists.

"I don't think that you can feel about race the way that I do and watch that Kushner bastard walk around with that beautiful girl (Ivanka Trump)". (organizer of Charlottesville white supremacy/anti-Semite rally; About those protesting them, he said, "We are not non violent. We'll fuckin' kill these people if we have to.) Trump, Ivanka's father who wanted to date her when she was a child and bragged about her breast implants on live radio, called this organizer "fine people."

Just like criminal defendants do when found guilty, the white supremacist braggart quoted here posted a video August 16, crying for minutes after he heard a rumor (not verified by the police) that there is a warrant for his arrest because of his threats to kill more people disagreeing with his white supremacy. Big and bad devolves to a sniveling coward faced with jail, even though he says it won't be the first time. A five minute video crying that he is a good guy. Trump will be a crier too.

This Trump supporter is wanted on two warrants — both related to events in Charlottesville — for felony charges for the illegal use of gases and injury by caustic agent or explosive. 

Each charge carries a minimum sentence of five years’ imprisonment. 

Trump's infrastructure plan: neo-Nazi death camps in the US.

Trump sees equivalency between Robert E. Lee, a general for slave owners in the Civil War who killed thousands protesting slavery, and George Washington, the first President of the US.

August 15: “What about the ‘alt-left’ that came charging at, as you say, the ‘alt-right’? Let me ask you this: What about the fact they came charging — that they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.” Trump protecting the vile. No wonder they are jubilant. A white supremacist MURDERS a 32 year old woman protesting against white supremacy...and Trump defends white supremacy.

Just as pleased as white supremacists, Russia is pleased with its role, a phenomenol return on investment, to ruin America by tilting the election to Trump.

If you support the most powerful racist of our time you are a racist. The leader of a North Carolina based group associated with the Ku Klux Klan says he is glad that a woman died while taking part in a protest in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend. The women was MURDERED by a white supremacist for standing up against racism. This is the company you are keeping, and supporting.

Trump sees no difference between a racist and someone protesting racism. He sees those protesting racism, white supremacy, the KKK, fascism, anti-Semites and bigots as violent and deserving of being killed.

Shame on all who support Trump as he colludes with America's chief foreign adversary, Russia, and America's chief domestic adversaries, the KKK, white supremacists, neo-Nazis, bigots, racists and religion intolerants, He has given them control of the US. Notably, elected officials from the most racist states are the least likely to be voted out of office, the 'red' states.

Shame on Chief of Staff John Kelly, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, Trump's Cabinet and Trump's sycophants in the White House, Congress and the media. Shame on Republican leaders who will not stand up because they are on vacation. They have no decency. They will be recorded by history as traitors.

David Duke, former KKK Grand Wizard, chastised Trump. "I would recommend you take a good look in the mirror & remember it was White Americans who put you in the presidency." Duke wagged his finger and Trump capitulated. They, Trump's hate groups, view the ambiguity of blame from Trump as a win, as a stamp of approval by which they can grow their efforts to divide us and bring out the darkest parts of our humanity. Trump has elevated hate groups to control of America. We must always remember, Trump has been a KKK sympathizer and racist his whole life. In 1927, his father was arrested for protesting with the KKK. In the 1970s, Trump redlined 'colored' people from his NY condos. In 1989, Trump demanded the execution of 5 innocent black teens wrongly accused of rape. We must remember Trump's birtherism, his campain against President Barrack Obama with eggregious and false claims for years that Obama was a black Muslim illegally in the US. Trump is a moral failure.

Republicans are supporting Trump's plan to create a race war. Trump indicated, and fanned, during the campaign that his followers would have started a civil war if Trump lost the election. Now, from the White House and his plush properties subsidized by taxpayers. Trump's war and profiteering are underway.

August 15: Today, Trump said that fine people marched quietly in Virginia. A bold-faced lie. Trump's fine people were hundreds of white supremacists, haters of blacks and haters of Jews there explicitly to start a race war and march against the United Church of Christ, trapping the clergy and faithful scared to death by a long line of Trump's 'fine people' carrying hundreds of lit torches and chanting, "White Lives Matter, You (blacks) will not replace us, Jews will not replace us, Sieg Heil, blood and soil." Trump is the world's leading racist and is determined to bring back the Civil War and initiate a modern race war.

Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump and their 2 children are Jews. Trump, in effect, said today that fine people called for the end of Jews last Friday. Trump has no decency even with his own family.

August 15: Pussy is back. Trump's famous pussy grabbing pastime was revived by DOD Secretary James Mattis speaking to submarine sailors, "That means you're not some pussy sitting on the sidelines, you know what I mean?" (August 9 speech)

August 15: "Important Republicans/conservs/Intel-military hi-ups increasingly saying in private that Trump is unfit to be president. Because of lack of ethics, competence, ‘temperament/stability.’ Reporters should find out how pervasive such talk may be." (Cark Bernstein)

Alt Right, a fascist movement, is the new term that amalgamates white supremacists, neo-Nazis, KKK clansman and anti-Semites. Steve Bannon, chief Trump adviser, put the Alt Right on the map and led it as CEO of Breitbart.

August 15: TRUMP'S WHITE SUPREMACISTS AND NEO-NAZIS ARE JUBILENT. Today, overtaking a major infrastructure announcement (actually, it wasn't but Trump thought so), Trump slammed George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, threatened to remove their statues across the US, praised those who killed hundreds of thousands of Americans against slavery in the Civil War and blamed those standing up against hate for the violence in Charlottesville (FACT: it was a white supremacist terrorist who sped his car into those standing up against hate, killing one and injuring 19) KKK leader and its former Grand Wizard David Duke proclaimed, "Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists in BLM/Antifa." (BLM refers to Black Lives Matter, Antifa refers to anti-fascist) White supremacist David Spencer said, "I'm proud of him for speaking the truth." They are thankful for Trump's collusion and his expanding their hateful ranks.

That performance will send shivers down the spine of every Allied leader. It will inspire every adversary. Everyone sees the unfitness. There hasn't been a full reveal under pressure like this since A Few Good Men. (Steve Schmidt)

Dear world, please accept the apology of real Americans for the travesty of Trump and his KKK clansmen, white supremacists and neo-nazis.

Trump also had something big to say. That his winery in Virginia is one of the largest in the US. Ooops. The Charlottesville, Va. winery that Trump boasted about owning says they have no affiliation with him.

August 15: CBO: Trump Threat To Cut Obamacare Subsidies Would Raise Premiums 25%.

Trump's White Supremacy. "None of this makes sense. Unless, that is, we come to grips with the reality that we are seeing the effects of far too many Americans strung out on the most pervasive, devastating, reality-warping drug to ever hit the United States: white supremacy. Like all forms of substance abuse, it has destroyed families and communities and put enormous strains on governmental institutions. It has made millions of Americans forsake their God and jettison their patriotism just to get a taste. High on its effects, its users feel powerful, heady, even as they and everything around them disintegrates. And, as with most drug crises, while not everyone may be strung out, everyone is very surely affected. In 2017, millions of Americans are hooked on this drug. As clearly as track marks in the arms, the most visible signs are all around us. The “Heil Trump” salutes at a gathering of white nationalists shortly before the inauguration. A uptick in reported hate crimes across the country. The killing of Lt Richard Collins by a white supremacist in Maryland. The double homicide and severe wounding of Good Samaritans defending teen girls in Portland from another emboldened white supremacist. The nooses found at and near the National Museum of African American History and Culture. As long as Trump gives the white supremacists one more Ice raid, one more deportation, one more Muslim travel ban, one more hunt for “illegal voters” in a sanctuary city, the craving is temporarily satisfied. And as with any addict, anything that gets in between the user and the drug has to go.  Republicans have convinced themselves, as addicts do, that they’re still in charge, that they’re getting out of this what they’ve always wanted – tax cuts for the rich, eventual destruction of the Affordable Care Act, a supreme court that will overturn Roe v Wade, and decisively fewer regulations on private industry – but none of these, if they were truly sober and in their right minds, are worth destroying the United States for. Yet, here we are. We’re not all addicted, but we’re surely enduring the consequences." (Carol Anderson, Charles Howard Candler professor and chair of African American studies at Emory University and the author of White Rage)

August 15: 9 white supremacist rallies to be held this week. Trump's campaign for the next election under way.

August 15: Trump cut federal funding for groups fighting right-wing violence. For Trump it's 'long live violent white supremacists and Nazis'. For Trump America and Americans are to harmed, not protected.

Under current United States law, set forth in the USA PATRIOT Act, acts of domestic terrorism are those which: "(A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State; (B) appear to be intended – (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States."

Trump's extremists and Trump himself are domestic terrorists.

August 15: Trump admires Nazis, who killed: millions of Americans fought and died to defeat Nazism in World War II, Jews: up to 6 million, Soviet civilians: around 7 million (including 1.3 Soviet Jewish civilians, who are included in the 6 million figure for Jews), Soviet prisoners of war: around 3 million (including about 50,000 Jewish soldiers), Non-Jewish Polish civilians: around 1.8 million (including between 50,000 and 100,000 members of the Polish elites), Serb civilians (on the territory of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina): 312,000, People with disabilities living in institutions: up to 250,000, Roma (Gypsies): 196,000–220,000, Jehovah's Witnesses: around 1,900, Repeat criminal offenders and so-called asocials: at least 70,000, German political opponents and resistance activists in Axis-occupied territory: undetermined, Homosexuals: hundreds, possibly thousands (possibly also counted in part under the 70,000 repeat criminal offenders and so-called asocials noted above).

Nazis are Trump's vision for America. Last Saturday, a Trump neo-nazi killed a 32 year old woman in Charlottesville, VA and injured 19 others while protesting white supremacist hate. Two policemen were killed that were monitoring the white supremacist rally there.

August 15: Trump sent 2 notable tweets today to his 35 million followers. One said he is a fascist, how true. The other, in the aftermath of a white supremacist plowing into pedestrians terrorist style, killing one and injuring 19, Trump sent out a picture of a train, labelled Trump, slamming into a CNN reporter. During the campaign and since, Trump emboldens violence against the minorities, peaceful protesters and the media.

August 14: After Trump proved again to be a white supremacist, CEOs of Merck, Under Armour, Intel, Campbell and 3M quit Trump's manaufacturing advisory group. Good riddance says Trump. (Update: CEO of Alliance for American Manufacturing and president of the AFL-CIO quit)

August 14: Last Friday, Trump promised a big press conference today. It consisted of announcing that CNN was fake news, and then he walked out. His white supremacisty friends loved it. Trump hates the media, loves white supremacists.

August 14: The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in May warned of the threat posed by white supremacist groups in the United States. The white supremacist movement "likely will continue to pose a threat of lethal violence over the next year," the bulletin said. In the bulletin, the FBI reported that white supremacist groups were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016, "more than any other domestic extremist movement." More than any foreign terrorist group. However, Trump said to dismiss it. Then came Charlottesville.

August 14: Like the Nazi SS, Trump ordered the Department of Justice to obtain the 1.4 million visitors to an anti-Trump web site. Next, Trump will get families to turn family members into the police for crimes against Trump, ie the state.

August 14: So belatedly did Trump finally address white supremacists this afternoon, they know he didn't mean it and his comment was simply a superficial nod to all (eg, his top White House officers, his Cabinet and Republican legislators) that forced him to say something

To inform his supporters that he is only superficially chastising them and to reassure them, Trump plans to pardon Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted for defying a court order to stop detaining suspected undocumented immigrants.

August 14: Opposite of Trump, a spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel described the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., over the weekend as “evil” and “disgusting." The scenes at the right-wing extremist march were absolutely repulsive — naked racism, anti-Semitism and hate in their most evil form were on display. Such images and chants are disgusting wherever they may be and they are diametrically opposed to the political goals of the chancellor and the entire German government."

August 14: Merck CEO and Chairman Kenneth C. Frazier said he was leaving Trump's American Manufacturing Council, arguing U.S. leaders must "clearly reject expressions of hatred, bigotry and group supremacy." Trump then attacked him (for his integrity).

Trump is quick to attack legislators, black CEOs, Muslims, US national security agencies and US law, but will not attack Putin, KKK, Nazis and white supremacists.

August 14: Caught red handed as a Nazi, KKK and white supremacist supporter, Trump turned attention to trade, blaming Democrats for Republican policies.

Nazi's praised Trump's 'response'. "Trump comments were good. He didn't attack us. When asked to condemn, he just walked out of the room. Really, really good. God bless him. "Despite feigned outrage by the media, most people are glad she (the murder victim) is dead, as she is the definition of uselessness. A 32-year-old woman without children is a burden on society and has no value. He (Trump) didn't attack us. He just said the nation should come together. Nothing specific against us. He said that we need to study why people are so angry , and implied that there was hate on ... both sides! There was virtually no counter signaling of us at all. He loves us all."

Across the US and around the world, Nazis and white supremacists are opposed. Not so with Trump. They are his closest supporters.

August 13: About Trump, Charlottesville mayor Michael Signer said, "Look at the campaign he ran. Look at the intentional courting both, on the one hand, of all these white supremacists, white nationalist groups like that, anti-Semitic groups. And then look on the other hand, the repeated failure to step up, condemn, denounce, silence, you know, put to bed all those different efforts." Trump always fails the morality test.

August 13: Trump encouraged and endorsed the racism, white supremacy and anti-Semitic violence yesterday in Virginia. 1,500 Nazis and KKK members expressed thanks that Trump did not criticize them, Trump's strongest supporters. The world watches the world's greatest democracy devolve into the world's emerging fascist state at war with everyone. Amazingly, even with Republicans, too many of whom support his anti-Americanism. America's remarkable promise and accomplishment is subjected to daily trashing by Trump. Will the US Constitution survive Trump's assault?

Trump condemns Hillary, NYT, WP, Schwarzenegger, McConnell, McCain, Sessions, Comey, Mueller etc. But won't condemn Putin or Alt Right. (Max Boot) And, won't condemn his white supremacist and neo-nazi supporters.

August 12: Like terrorists in Europe, a white supremacist sped his car into pedestrians protesting the white supremacists, killing one and injuring 19, all standing up against white supremacy in contrast to Trump who courts them. Belatedly, Trump spoke and tweeted BUT did not address the white supremacist terrorists AND turned his statement into a campaign event bragging about the economy and job growth (he inherited from Obama). Still, Trump green-lights and mainstreams white supremacy and its terrorism. Trump can hardly contain his pride in his terrorist supporters, and blamed those against white supremacy for the violence and murder of white supremacists.

The mother of the murderer, a Nazi white supremacist, thought he was going to a Trump rally. It certainly looked and sounded like a Trump rally, filled with Trump signs, hats and hate. A teacher said he was very big into Nazism and idolized Hitler, explaining his loyalty to Trump to rough up protesters, though Trump has yet to offer to pay his legal bills as he did during his rallies.

Nazi symbols were prominent. Neo-Nazis and white supremacists are Trumps strongest supporters. Earlier this week, the Ann Frank Center for Mutural Respect noted the many parallels between Trump and Nazis of the 1930/1940s. About Trump, it said: Trump creates his own media, exploits youth at rallies, demonize people who believe, look or love differently, strips vulnerable people of their families, jobs and ability to live, and believes Congress should change its rules to give him more power.

Trump's chief advisor in the White House, Steve Bannon, aka Trump's brain, is a prominent white supremacist.

What a profound moral failure on the part of the President of the United States. (Steve Schmidt)

August 12: Even in 2017, Trumpism has fertile ground to inspire white supremacy riots. The state of Virginia declared 'state of emergency'. Trump bigotry and war mongering are painting a horrible picture of the US around the world. He smiles in glee.

Former KKK leader David Duke applauded Trump's promise to return the US to whites. According to duke, the purpose of the white supremacist rally was to fulfill Trump's promises.

August 12: Chinese President Xi Jinping put Trump on his lap and told him to count to ten. Stop the brat bluster. Xi splelled 'diplomacy' for the little Donald, who could only muster a temper tantrum.

August 11: Adding to Iraq, Syria, Libya and Afghanistan Trump announced he may go to war against Venezuela. He hopes to deflect his wars with Congress, American institutions, women, minorities and American Muslims. (Trump refused to take the call from Venezuela's President to ask 'what, another war, why?' The rest of the world want to know as well.)

August 11: Trump drew his third red line with North Korea. If they even utter a threat, he'll eliminate them. He said that US B-1 bombers are at the ready. North Korea crosses all 3 of Trump's red lines every day.

August 11: "Locked and loaded." During his 17 days of golf and ongoing low-rating TV show, Trump said he is ready to END North Korea. Trump's new world order.

August 10: Trump claimed government and national security officers were all incompetent before he took office. Now, he says, everything is wonderful...except the Senate, the House, the judiciary, national security agencies, governement agencies, women's health care and the nation's future.

August 10: Like minds think alike. Trump thanked Putin for kicking out of Russia 755 US diplomats. Who needs diplomacy when your other half runs the other country. And, Putin is right, the US is wrong for Trump.

August 10: Trump shows the world his is one the same level as Kim Jong-un, elevating North Korea, Russia and China in the process. Billions see Trump as a sick joke.

August 10: Trump is turning the US into a two-bit dictatorship with an itchy trigger finger on 7,000 nuclear weapons.

North Korea called Trump "senile," "bereft of reason" and "extremely getting on the nerves" of his soldiers.

Trump has eviscerated the State Department, refusing to nominate ambassadors around the world, particularly in Asia.

August 9: North Korea crossed Trump's blustery red line again today, saying it would send 4 missiles over Japan to Guam and that Trump's threat yesterday was " a load of nonsense" and that Trump understands "only absolute force."

August 9: Yesterday, Trump proclaimed, "My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before." Trump has done NOTHING that Obama did not start. Why should North Korea, China or Russia ever believe Trump? It is impossible that Trump changed the US nuclear arsenal. He is bluffing away America's prestige and risking national security.

When Trump ran for President in 1999, he said he would use nuclear weapons in a pre-emptive strike against North Korea.

Note: Trump has 12 businesses in South Korea.

August 9: The FBI raided with a search warrant Paul Manafort's home in July before dawn, meaning that the FBI had probably cause of crimes, critical documents were present and a judge agreed. Reporters noted that news of this raid today, which occured 2 weeks ago, had a chilling effect in the White House.

According to another Trump Russian agent, Roger Stone (business partner of Manafort), a dozen FBI agents broke into Manafort's residence and bedroom, shocking Manafort and his wife sleeping in bed.

August 9: More Trump infantile penis envy today. "My first order as President was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. It is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before." A year ago, Trump said he would use nuclear weapons in Europe and North Korea. "If we have them, why not use them." Yesterday, he threated nuclear war again.

Twitter finger in one hand, nuclear button finger in the other.

August 9: Trump cannot stand detailed national security briefings, demanding only single page reports with lots of pictures. In contrast, Trump demands extensive propaganda reports twice a day. These 'sensitive' papers, described by three White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful. One White House official said the only feedback the White House communications shop, which prepares the folder, has ever gotten in all these months is: “It needs to be more fucking positive.” That’s why some in the White House ruefully refer to the packet as “the propaganda document.”

Trump is an out-of-control ego.

August 9: Around the world, headlines are showing billions that the US has lost its way and leadership in the world.

August 8: More Trump bluster. He promised early today a major announcement about the opoid crisis at 3 PM. Didn't happen. Instead, he threatened World War III. Update: Trump's major announcement turned out to be to say that there would be no opioid abuse if users did not abuse opioids. Brilliant!

The bigger your ego the tinier you are. Trump, however, can compensate his tininess with nuclear weapons. Trump is showing that there is little difference between Kim Jung-un and himself, both madmen.

August 8: Trump threatened World War III. After pushing North Korea with his blubbery bluster for several months, North Korea miniaturized a nuclear weapon to fit on missiles, eg the ICBM it launched last week. In response, Trump announced, "North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States. They will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. He (Kim Jong-un) has been very threatening beyond a normal state. They will be met with fire, fury and frankly power the likes of which this world has never seen before." Another Trump red line. Trump effectively announced a nuclear attack against North Korea, which would likely cause military responses from North Korea's immediate neighbors, Russia and China. Notably, Trump blamed China for North Korea's weapons. North Korea would likely unleash Armageddon on South Korea, Japan and possibly the United States. Millions of lives are being threatened by Trump's nuclear announcement.

A Trump nuclear war to derail Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Update: North Korea's response to Trump's nuclear threat: preparing operational plans to attack Guam, a key to the US military's forward deployed presence in the Pacific and home to thousands of American service members and their families, thus crossing Trump's red line.

Unless someone gets Trump under control he will snuff the lives of millions. Amongst many transgressions, Trump is pushing North Korea into disaster.

August 8: Trump is pure BS. He is on a warpath against leaks of classified information UNLESS it is broadcast by his state media network, Fox News, which publishes classified information. Trump was so proud of the leak of classified information he re-tweeted it.

Trump is a PINO, president in name only. Always wrong, always bigoted, always anti-American.

Trump telegraphs who he feels inferior to. Those he attacks the most. The generals, Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Barack Obama, Richard Blumenthal, James Comey and Robert Mueller. And, the media, truth and the rule of law. Trump spends most of his time against them instead of doing his job.

August 7: Trump is despicable. During the campaign, Trump attacked Senator John McCain as a non-hero because he was tortured (to protect the US) for 5 years as a POW. Today, Trump attacked Senator Richard Blumenthal because he 'only' served in the military in the Reserve. Currently, nearly 900,000 serve in the Reserve as Trump calls them cry babies. Recently, Trump also attacked thousands of transgenders and Moslims serving in the military successfully. Trump NEVER served in the military in any capacity, too scared, too rich.

Deaths from chemical warfare in the US vastly exceeds conventional chemical warfare by terrorists. Prescription drugs kill over 100,000 each year in the US alone, half of which due to opioids. Those surviving live a life of addiction and with heart attacks, strokes, liver disease, psychiatric conditions and more. Trump intends to make this worse, having promised to curtail the prescription industry and particularly its largest killer, opioids, BUT having done nothing and creating TrumpCare proposals that would promote this chemical warfare. 'It's legal' is probably Trump's excuse. However, legality isn't everything. Morality and life are, but these are not in Trump's vocabulary let alone action plan. (Similarly for medical treatment mistakes, which ill nearly one million in the US each year. Nothing is being done about health care costs. All health care proposals only address part of the problem.)

It is unfortunate that Trump was elected based on racism, bigotry, religious intolerance, white supremacy, lies, cheating, violence, Islamophobia, arrogance, fraud, money laundering, taxpayer profiteering, government waste, bogus public policies, authoritarianism, Russia hacking and fake news, FBI blunders, congressional dysfunction, attacking US national security and the US military, and the vast difference between what politicians promise and what they deliver. In office, Trump is worsening all of these. Trump demeans the presidency, the White House, the Constitution and America.

August 5: The GOP has become the party of the grotesque. (George Will) The vision and aspirations of Ronald Reagan are over. Trump has mortally infected the GOP.

August 5: Trump attacked Obama as a lazy black Muslim for going on vacation. Trump promised he would not take vacations and not leave the White House because he would be too busy winning. Facts show otherwise. A loser who has spent millions of taxpayer funds at 60 visits to his properties and today starting a 17-day vacation. Trump has already spent more in 6 months that Obama did in 8 years.

Trump considers 'leaks' of facts as false fake news and is determined to imprison anyone who reveals information that demonstrates his lies.

August 3: Putin slapped his little boy US President. Through Putin's Prime Minister, Putin called Trump weak and impotent, outwitted by Congress. He predicted that Trump will be removed.

August 3: The Secret Service has vacated its command post in Trump Tower over a dispute with the Trump Organization regarding the agency's lease. The Secret Service command post was moved to a trailer on a New York City sidewalk. Trump's rent, paid by US taxpayers, was too high.

August 3: Senator John McCain stated that we are losing in Afghanistan because Trump failed.

August 3: Trump called the President of Mexico to trash New Hampshire as a drug-infested den (the Republican governor strongly disagreed) and that he won the state because of its opioid epidemic. According to Trump, Russia is great, the US is falling apart.

August 3: A big and recurring Trump lie. The central theme of Trump's campaign was that Mexico would pay for the (senseless) wall. However, transcript shows that Trump told the Mexican President otherwise, the American people would pay. His campaign promise was only politics. In a line likely to surprise some Trump supporters, the Trump described the wall as "the least important thing we are talking about, but politically this might be the most important."

August 3: "I have had it," Trump told his Australian counterpart during the Jan. 28 call, according to a transcript. "I have been making these calls all day, and this is the most unpleasant call all day. "Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous." Indeed, when Trump talks to Putin, he is talking to his benefactor and business partner.

August 3: Trump blamed "dangerously low" relationship with Russia on Congress. He cannot stand that they are concerned with Russia's interference with the election. Trump relies on a close relationship for his businesses.

August 2: Sam Clovis, Trump's nominee to be the Department of Agriculture's chief scientist, maintained a now-defunct blog for years in which he accused progressives of "enslaving" minorities, called black leaders "race traders," and labeled former President Barack Obama a "Maoist" with "communist" roots. Of course, no science credentials.

August 2: Mexico is denying that its president recently called President Trump to compliment the White House's immigration policy, saying Enrique Peña Nieto has not contacted Trump in weeks. “Even the president of Mexico called me," Trump said at a Cabinet meeting. Trump lie.

August 2: The former head of the Scottish government on Wednesday called Trump “a complete and utter nincompoop.” “The Grand Canyon is a minor crevice compared to the vast chasm of ignorance of that man.”

August 2: Trump lies again. The Boy Scouts of America said Wednesday the organization is not aware of any calls between its leaders and President Donald Trump, even though the president recently said he got a call praising his July 24 speech at the scouting jamboree. Trump claimed that the Boy Scouts said "it was the best speech ever made to them and they were very thankful." In fact, the Boy Scouts officially denounced Trump's salacious abusive speech in front of thousands of boys. The White House announced that there was no such phone call. Trump lie.

August 2: Trump told his golf club members, at least 8 members heard it, "that White house is a dump." So, he has left the White House nearly 50 times to stay at one of his posh golf clubs and several more excursions to eat at one of his posh restaurants and massive taxpayer expense, costing us in less than 1 year what Obama spent in 8 years (not including the massive taxpayer expenses, so far amounting to millions of dollars, to securitize so many Trump residences).

August 1: With a cover story of saving money, Trump is purchasing 2 Boeing 747's for the Air Force One fleet FROM RUSSIA.

August 1: Republican congressman Ken Buck from Colorado declared that the Republican Party is “dead,” arguing it “no longer has a vision for a better America.” Just the way Trump likes it.

August 1: Putin, Trump's partner against NATO, is amassing troops and tanks along the borders of NATO countries with Russia. No comment from Trump.

August 1: Trump engineered a false news story on Fox News – that the DNC murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich, which Fox had to retract TODAY. Today, Fox News was sued over Trump's fake story. According to the lawsuit from the homicide detective hired by Trump who says that Fox fabricated quotes from him, "Fox News was working with the Trump administration to disseminate fake news in order to distract the public from Russia's alleged attempts to influence our Country's presidential election."

Trump's purpose for this fake news story was to blame a murdered DNC staffer for hacking DNC computers rather than Russia, as concluded by the entire US national intelligence comunity. It was another Trump obstruction of justice.

Trump is very sick to trash a victim of murder whose case remains unsolved purely to distract from his treason. Pleas for mercy from Rich's parents were ignored by Trump.

July 31: On the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Germany last month, President Trump’s advisers discussed how to respond to a new revelation that Trump’s oldest son had met with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign — a disclosure the advisers knew carried political and potentially legal peril. The strategy, the advisers agreed, should be for Donald Trump Jr. to release a statement to get ahead of the story. They wanted to be truthful, so their account couldn’t be repudiated later if the full details emerged. But within hours, at the president’s direction, the plan changed. Flying home from Germany on July 8 aboard Air Force One, Trump personally dictated a statement in which Trump Jr. said he and the Russian lawyer had “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” when they met in June 2016, according to multiple people with knowledge of the deliberations. The statement, issued to the New York Times as it prepared a story, emphasized that the subject of the meeting was “not a campaign issue at the time.” The claims were later shown to be misleading. (Washington Post)

More Trump cover-up and obstruction of justice. Trump overruled his advisors who wanted him to tell the truth. Instead, Trump created a cover up.

And again, Trump sent his lawyers out to lie and further obstruct justice, this time claiming falsely that Trump did dictate the false and misleading 'words' of Don Jr.

UPDATE: A few hours after Trump's lawyers lied during media interviews, insisting that Trump had NOTHING to do with Don Jr.'s statement, the White House admitted that Trump indeed was involved. NOTHING Trump or his lawyers say to defend themselves is true.

Trump views Special Counsel Robert Mueller as an existential threat. Trump is consumed by his need to fire Meuller who Trump believes will report his corrupt business ties to Russia, his collusions with Russia and his damage to the presidency, the country and US allies.

Trump is terrified that Republicans in Congress will increasingly realize how corrupt, incompetent and un-American his is and join the majority of Americans who already want something done to save their country, their livelihood, their Constitution and their presidency.

Completely reversing his campaign attacks of our generals as weak, Trump hired another General (this time, White House Chief of Staff).

July 31: Who could blame the people who felt abandoned and ignored by the major parties for reaching in despair for a candidate who offered oversimplified answers to infinitely complex questions and managed to entertain them in the process? Under our Constitution, there simply are not that many people who are in a position to do something about an executive branch in chaos. As the first branch of government (Article I), the Congress was designed expressly to assert itself at just such moments. It is what we talk about when we talk about “checks and balances.” Too often, we observe the unfolding drama along with the rest of the country, passively, all but saying, “Someone should do something!” without seeming to realize that that someone is us. And so, that unnerving silence in the face of an erratic executive branch is an abdication, and those in positions of leadership bear particular responsibility. Even as our own government was documenting a concerted attack against our democratic processes by an enemy foreign power, our own White House was rejecting the authority of its own intelligence agencies, disclaiming their findings as a Democratic ruse and a hoax. Conduct that would have had conservatives up in arms had it been exhibited by our political opponents now had us dumbstruck. Senator Jeff Flake, Republican)

July 31: For 2 years, Trump claimed to be the most brilliant politician ever. Today, through Jared Kushner, now says he was too disorganized to collude with the Russians.

Perhaps so, but Russia assaulted Democracy and selected the US President on behalf of their 'useful idiot' who hardly knew he was compromised. Putin's tape recordings of Trump, including during his many business meetings years ago and the private one-hour chat between Trump and Putin 2 weeks ago, will someday come in handy for Putin.

Someday, Trump voters will realize that lies are lies, Russia-hugging is un-American and that what politicians promise to get elected should not be so readily accepted even after they are shown to be cynical manipulations. A better world it would be.

July 31: Throughout his campaign Trump claimed that US generals were fools and incompetent and that he knew more than the generals. Today, Trump appointed a general to be the new White House Chief of staff. Underlying reason: to obstruct justice. General John Kelly, who wanted to resign as Secretary of Homeland Security after the eggregious firing of FBI Director Comey, is, as Chief of Staff, more constrained in telling the truth about Trump-Russia.

Based on his White House management no wonder Trump filed for bankruptcy so often, costing bank customers and taxpayers billions of dollars.

July 31: Trump likes to threaten. Like his threats against minorities, Muslims, public health, US national security agencies and FBI, Trump added to his threats against Republicans in Congress, threatening to violate US law and federal support for health care insurance for those, he call fools, in Congress (as well as the general public) will be terminated.

July 30: Encouraged by US weakness, Putin took another step beyond collaborating in Syria' to manipulate Trump, expelling 75% (755) US diplomats from Russia. Putin sees Trump as a 'useful idiot' who he is using to degrade the US, create chaos in the US, undermine US democracy and elevate Russia.

Not wanting to diss his patron, Trump has had nothing to say about Putin's expelling most of the US diplomats in Russia.

July 30: Trump's primary problem as a leader is not that he is impetuous, brash or naive. It’s not that he is inexperienced, crude, an outsider. It is that he is weak and sniveling. It is that he undermines himself almost daily by ignoring traditional norms and forms of American masculinity. He’s not strong and self-controlled, not cool and tough, not low-key and determined; he’s whiny, weepy and self-pitying. He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic. He’s a drama queen. Half the president’s tweets show utter weakness. They are plaintive, shrill little cries, usually just after dawn. His public brutalizing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t strong, cool and deadly; it’s limp, lame and blubbery. Meanwhile the whole world is watching, a world that contains predators. How could they not be seeing this weakness, confusion and chaos and thinking it’s a good time to cause some trouble? (Peggy Noonan)

Trump knows he is illegitimate and hurting the country. So he whines, spits and kicks.

Trump and company insist that they cannot be guilty of any wrongdoing because they are idiots.

July 29: "A fish stinks from the head." (White House Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci)

July 29: Trump called Senate Republicans FOOLS. No wonder he has no real friends. Problem is....Congressional Republicans enjoy their S&M relationship with Trump.

July 28: North Korea launched a successful ICBM. Trump responded by shooting a few rockets into the water. What a scarry hombre Trump is.

July 28: Trump told police to rough up suspects and encouraged police abuses. Don't wait for proof or conviction. Illegal of course.

The Suffolk County Police Department said they do not tolerate the "roughing up of prisoners" in response to President Trump's address to police on Long Island on Wednesday, in which the president said cops should treat subjects violently. "The SCPD has strict rules & procedures relating to the handling of prisoners. Violations of those rules are treated extremely seriously," the department tweeted.

July 28: While Trump is mostly a grotesque failure, he has yet to buzz kill the Obama economy that Trump inherited. Market, jobs and confidence are still growing.

July 28: After 2 years of attacking Congress, threatening Republicans, threatening Alaskans, and sending a message of Steve Bannon oral sex on himself, Trump led to FAILURE to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, which Trump hates because it is also known as ObamaCare. Trump has vowed to kill ObamaCare and its beneficiaries.

July 27: Steve Bannon, Trump's brain in the White House, wants to regulate Google and Facebook like a public utility. More regulations!

July 27: Another White House day of chaos. First, Trump's 'mini me' Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, claimed he was going to order the FBI to imprison whoever 'leaked' his finance disclosure for a taxpayer-funded job. Problem: by law, his finance disclosure is public information and was supplied to media requests by Trump's government. Scaramucci announced he will be firing several White House staff tomorrow. Then, Scaramucci said about White House Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" and is about to be fired. Then, Scaramucci said, "I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock." Trump, sending words like this out of the White House and himself obsessed with grabbing female genitals... what a role model for our children.

More complete verbatim from Scaramucci about Trump's message. “They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channeled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and  see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” Scaramucci was particularly incensed by a Politico report about his financial-disclosure form, which he viewed as an illegal act of retaliation by Priebus. The reporter said Thursday morning that the document was publicly available and she had obtained it from the Export-Import Bank. Scaramucci didn’t know this at the time, and he insisted to me that Priebus had leaked the document, and that the act was “a felony.” “I’ve called the F.B.I. and the Department of Justice,” he told me .“What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people.” Scaramucci also told me that, unlike other senior officials, he had no interest in media attention. “I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” he said, speaking of Trump’s chief strategist. “I’m not trying to build my own brand off the fucking strength of the President. I’m here to serve the country.” (New Yorker)

Official White House policy, fellatio yourself.

UPDATE: Scaramucci's wife, following the vile disgusting language of her husband, is filing for divorce.

Update: July 31. Scarammucci, Trump's 'mini-me', was fired. Only Trump is allowed to talk like that.

July 26: Taking all by surprise, particularly the military, Trump needed a diversion from his chaos and treason. So, he banned transgender people from the military (producing a GOP backlash) and joined litigation against gays, claiming that they do not have civil rights.

The military, most notably the Chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, will not implement Trump's ban. Defense Secretary James Mattis was caught off-guard and "appalled" by President Trump's announcement that he was banning transgender people from serving in the military.

Trump is trying to degrade the business of Amazon because it owns the Washington Post.

July 26: Trump had his Energy Secretary Rick Perry call Ukraine's president to discuss a natural gas pipeline from Russia to Europe through Ukraine. An attempt at collusions with Russia. BUT, Perry was pranked by 2 Russians, ie Perry was duped by a fake phone call.

Amazingly, Trump doubts his legitimacy more than anyone else. And, he is scared by the Trump-Russia investigations. So increasingly, he attacks everyone except Russia's president Vladimir Putin.

July 25: According to Trump, "With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office." Lincoln died in 1865. Trump says he is better than Presidents George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin D. Roosevelt, John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. False of course. During the same speech, Trump attacked someone in the audience, "Boy, he's a young one. He's going back home to mommy. Oh is he in trouble. He's in trouble. And I'll bet his mommy voted for us, right? If you don’t point no one’s even going to know he’s here. Weak voice." Then, how did Trump notice? Trump is the least presidential in US history, befriending US foes, attacking the US Constitution and the rule of law, degrading minorities, demeaning US allies, attacking religious freedom, inspiring hate and violence, admiring dictators and using the White House to make hundreds of millions of dollars.

July 25: Shell-shocked by Trump, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is taking time off at a time when the US faces multiple foreign policy challenges!

On behalf of Russia, Trump is at war with President Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrats, Republicans, US national security agencies, Dept. of Justice, FBI, White House staff, government employees and minorities. And Europe and NATO.

July 25: Trump has made the US the leading banana republic in the world. Again today, Trump called for Hillary Clinton's prosecution for fictional crimes and expressed dissatisfaction with the Attorney General for not doing so. Trump considers it disloyal for anyone in government not to violate the Constitution and US laws for Trump. Trump is determined to obstruct justice in new ways almost daily and is widely reported to be planning the firing of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

July 25: Trump is grotesque. Yesterday, in contrast to decades of precedent for the president to discuss honor, Trump spoke to the boy scouts yesterday about cocktail parties, spending time on sex yachts, the weakness of his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, and stirred up putrid booing of President Barrack Obama, who Trump hates because, in Trump's eyes, Obama is a black Muslim. This morning, after another sleepless night of hate, Trump attacked the Attorney General and Acting FBI Director to obstruct justice and force them to investigate Trump's other hate object, Hillary Clinton, who Trump claims colluded with Ukraine, also a foe of brother Putin, to lose the election.

The Boy Scouts of America issued a statement distancing itself from partisan politics after Trump used his speech at the National Scout Jamboree to criticize former President Barack Obama (a boy scout himself), his former campaign rival Hillary Clinton, fake news and pundits. Trump broke with eight decades of tradition Monday when he criticized rivals and others at the National Jamboree, which gathers tens of thousands of young people from across the world to discuss values such as serving your country and exchanging ideas. During the speech, Trump attacked Obama, slammed “fake media” and trashed Clinton for not campaigning enough in Michigan. He also told a rambling story about a home builder, William Levitt, who “went personally bankrupt, and he was now much older. And I saw him at a cocktail party, and it was very sad because the hottest people in New York were at this party,” according to news reports.  (The Hill)

A couple days later: "I want to extend my sincere apologies to those in our Scouting family who were offended by the political rhetoric that was inserted into the jamboree," Michael Surbaugh, chief scout executive for the Boy Scouts of America said.

Trump is the opposite of a boy scout.

July 24: Of course he did. Trump's nominee to lead the Department of Justice's criminal division used to represent a major Russian bank whose owners have ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

July 24: Trump claimed that ObamaCare has killed for 17 years. Lie again. ObamaCare, which helps everyone with insurance without Medicare, was enacted in 2010. Trump is a non-stop lie, only pausing to take a beath.

Another Trump lie the past few days – that the New York Times wrote a news story that leaked classified secret information about the ISIS leader. In fact, the New York Times was simply reporting on the press release from the Secretary of the US Department of Defense. From the May 16, 2015 Pentagon press release: "Last night, at the direction of the Commander in Chief, I ordered U.S. Special Operations Forces to conduct an operation in al-Amr in eastern Syria to capture an ISIL senior leader known as Abu Sayyaf and his wife Umm Sayyaf. Abu Sayyaf was involved in ISIL's military operations and helped direct the terrorist organization's illicit oil, gas, and financial operations as well. Abu Sayyaf was killed during the course of the operation when he engaged U.S. forces." This DOD press release and the NYT story did not tip off the ISIS leader.

Two weeks ago in Hamburg, Germany, Trump evaded national security and had a one-hour meeting with Putin after dinner. During dinner, Putin had engaging discussion with Trump's wife WITHOUT interpreter, just a one hour plus private chat.

July 24: Trump begged Republicans in Congress to protect him from congressional investigation, from his Attorney General that he is attacking and from the Special Prosecutor. Trump also begged all of them to investigate Hillary Clinton and a fictitious plot by Democrats to engineer Trump's collusion with Russia to win the election.

July 22: Trump attacked US national security and the military for 2 years. Today, Trump attacked again, claiming falsely that the best military in the world is in very bad shape, inviting more provocations from North Korea, China and Russia.

Trump has so little to offer, he lies.

Trump is redefining America as the lying capitol of the world and a Russian satellite.

Trump agrees with Russia rather than the US Constitution.

Trump insists that he as had no business deals with Russians other than a 2013 Miss Universe contest held in Russia. Trump does not consider hundreds of millions of dollars of real estate sales to Russians as relevant. Investigation into his tax returns and business deals will reveal massive business with Russia and Putin. Thus, he is obstructing justice in any way he can, including defaming and possibly firing Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. He is terrified that Mueller will gain access to his tax returns and business records with Russia's oligarchs, spies, corrupt banks managing its money laundering, and Putin.

July 21: More Trump obstruction of justice. Trump has hired lawyers and others at taxpayer expense to interfere with and defame Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

July 21: Another day, another lie about Russian contacts exposed. March 2, 2017 (the day he recused himself from investigations regarding Russia because he lied during his Senate confirmation hearing), AG Jeff Sessions said that he had no contacts with Russian operatives during Trump's campaign in 2016. Like all the other denials from Trump et al regarding Russian contacts, Sessions lied. US national intelligence agencies have intercepts proving that Sessions spoke with Russian spies about Trump's campaign. Last week, Don Jr. told us he had been lying for over a year, and he too had contacts with Russian agents.

The widest treason in US history but endorsed by Trump voters and Republicans in Congress.

July 21: A sad day it is. Spicey is gone, Sean Spicer quit. Saturday Night Live loses a star.

Trump owns some interesting web site names. TrumpAndOJ.com, donaldtrumpsucks.com, trumpscam.com, donaldtrumpponzischeme.com and more.

July 21: Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said that Trump and Putin went to the toilet together. More play by play to follow?

July 20: Trump, knowing he is guilty of crimes, hired lawyers to explore ways for him to PARDON HIMSELF from a prison sentence.

To grant a pardon is to establish that a crime was committed. Criminals who receive pardons are spared prison time.

July 19: Trump gives Putin another gift, abolishing the cybersecurity office in the State Department.

July 19: Kris Kobach, vice chairman of Trump's voter fraud panel, said that the votes that led to President Trump's electoral victory in November were "absolutely" in doubt. Trump's election was rigged by Russia.

July 19: Trump is scared. So he attacked Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe, fired FBI Director James Comey and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, who Trump threatened to fire should he investigate Trump's finances. Trump considers them all co-conspirators against him. But, Trump finances are already being investigated. Deutche Bank, which loaned Trump hundreds of millions of dollars when no other bank would because of his terrible business track record, the bank already fined more than $600 million for its part in Russian money laundering, is already 'cooperating' with Mueller. ( Big German Bank, Key to Trump’s Finances, Faces New Scrutiny. Deutsche Bank has been in contact with federal investigators about the Trump accounts, according to two people briefed on the matter. And the bank is expecting to eventually have to provide information to Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel overseeing the federal investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Deutsche Bank has also lent money to Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, and to his family real estate business. New York Times)

July 19: Trump is shutting down the CIA's program to arm and train rebels fighting the Syrian government, a victory for Russia, which has called for the move for years.

July 18: Revealed only today, Trump had a previously UNDISCLOSED one-hour person-person meeting with Putin 2 weeks ago without ANY US official or staff in attendance (no US translator, Trump used Putin's). Man to man plotting against the US. Gravitating to Putin, walking around the large dinner table ALONE for a lengthy chummy chat and engineering to have only a Japanese interpreter who stayed far away and no US official/staffer, Trump showed the world his allegience to Putin and dropped the need for Putin to use spies to collude with Trump and, possibly to tape record Trump's treason during their one-hour meeting.

Trump held this meeting to evade US national security. When the time is right, Putin will release his audio recording of the meeting, or use it to blackmail Trump.

July 18: At the June 2016 meeting with Russians that he denied it occurrence for a year, until Don Jr. boasted about it, there were several Russians, including one identified today who is a money launderer for Russia and represented a Russian oligarch who had business deals with Trump and Putin. (other Russians at the meeting Trump lied about for over a year included a Russian foreign agent, a Russian oligarch publicist and a Russian lawyer tied to Putin)

July 17: For several months, Trump called promised that ditching ObamaCare and replacing it with TrumpCare would be easy and cost a fraction of the price of what insurance costs now. TrumpCare 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 FAILED. Too many lies from Trump to get anything done. Trump is a failure, a criminal and a traitor. Imagine the history books that our grandchildren will study.

Trump's arrogance caused so many losses that today he said he is will cause ObamaCare to fail. Send many to their deaths. Stop coverage for pre-existing illnesses. Drastically increase the cost of insurance, which combined with loss of insurance subsidies, will produce tens of millions of Americans without insurance. Trump prefers catastrophe. Trump is determined to destroy the US health system.

Trump announced that he and his associates will not comply with the law (Affordable Healthcare Act, aka ObamaCare), setting up a criminal conspiracy.

July 17: Trump called Republicans DOPES.

Trump's has turned his lawyers into state liars.

July 16: On all the big talk shows today, a Trump lawyer insisted there was nothing wrong with Trump colluding with US's major adversary to squash democracy and break an array of US laws to win the election. Aiding and abetting with enemies is a good thing.

Trump blamed a new target today, the Secret Service, because they let Russian spies into Trump Tower and the Trump White House. It was only a couple days ago that Trump blamed a Democrat plot that engineered Russia sending spies to sucker Trump. This attack on the Secret Service forced it to respond. "Donald Trump Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time." Trump attacks everything US in favor of Russia.

Trump-Russia. Drip. Drip. Drip. Oh, what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive!

July 14: Trump claims that his collusion with Russia to win the election was the result of a Democratic plot. It was Democrats who placed Russian spies inside Trump's campaign and White House. Trump was merely a victim. He succumbed to a plot, unable to resist it. Trump's lies get more and more ridiculous.

According to Trump, it is OK to do anything that is not illegal. Wrongdoing is acceptable if it is not illegal. Patriotism, morality and ethics are meaningless. Most religious prohibitions are not illegal, so go ahead, offend God. What a lesson for our children.

A majority of Republicans in a new survey think colleges and universities have a negative effect on the U.S. Just 36 percent of Republicans think they have a positive effect.

July 14: In addition to the Russian government lawyer in Don Jr.'s meeting to coordinate Trump-Russia plans to win the election, there was a Russian intelligence officer and lobbyist. And, solving yet another Trump lie, Trump did NOT only learn of the meeting last Saturday as he claimed but no later than a few weeks ago when his lawyers were informed of the Trump-Russia meeting in Trump Tower. However, it is likely that Trump knew about the meeting June 9, 2016, and perhaps he even attended.

Republicans in Congress are colluding with Russia to defend Trump's treason.

July 13: In France, Trump announced to the world that it is acceptable to collude with Vladimir Putin to win elections.

Trump lives in a make believe world.

The Russian orchestration of Trump. Russia has been playing Trump for a long time. With so many bankruptcies and difficulty finding funding, Russia stepped in with loans and business contracts, bringing Trump back from complete meltdown. This is the fundamental reason Trump is beholden to Russia. Then, after Trump hinted at running for President in 2012, Russia began discussing Trump extensively, funding political machines in the US and computer hacking Trump's most scary to Russia and most likely opponent of Trump, Hillary Clinton. Russia recruited Jared Kushner to create its far-reaching social media operations and target American voters to attack Clinton and to favor Trump. Russia contracted Cambridge Analytica for its voter targeting program; Cambridge is owned by Robert Mercer, a player with Breitbart News (previously led by Steve Bannon) and deep-pocket supporter of Trump. Russia sent several high-ranking Russian spies to interact directly with Trump in Trump Tower during 2016, including sending one of its lawyers under cover of expedited DOJ permission to enter the US. This lawyer who met with Trump, met with Trump's son, campaign manager Paul Manafort and Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner June 9, 2016 to inform Trump that Russia had juicy emails from the DNC and Clinton's campaign manager John Podesta. Don Jr. asked that public release be delayed for late summer, a request Russia obliged and started its email dumps in July. Trump publicly asked Russia for more cyber attacks against Clinton at a July press conference as well. The duped media under reported profound warnings from the national security community in favor of the titillation of Russia's email dumps. As engineered by Russia, Trump won the election.

July 13, Trump once again absolved his responsibility because his campaign crimes all happened while Obama was president. A specific example: the Russian government lawyer who flew from Moscow to meet with Trump, Don Jr. and Jared Kushner in 2016 was granted special circumstance in 2015 for the limited purpose to meet with a client charged with fraud in the US.

July 12: American intelligence intercepts recorded members of the Russian government talking about Donald Trump and his allies months before he launched his presidential bid.

July 12: Trump says 90% of campus sexual assaults are fake.

To escape jail and impeachment, Trump can rely on incompetence and laziness at the FBI and other government agencies. They prosecute few white-collar criminals, whose lawyers typically run diversionary rings around investigators. For example, it is reported that Special Prosecutor never thought of investigating Don Jr.'s emails regarding Russia and his businesses with Russia.

July 12: Trump is delusional. Todays presentation...Trump claimed that Don Jr.'s eager meeting with the Russian government lawyer (who has a long history fighting US sanctions against Russia and flew to the US from Moscow for the meeting) and email story was fake news, made up by the media. But, Don Jr. released the email chain with him setting up the treasonous Russian meeting to coordinate Russia's support for Trump's election. And, Don Jr. conducted several media interviews yesterday confirming the story, again and again.

Ethics lawyers for Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama blasted President Trump's son in a joint op-ed Tuesday after he admitted to meeting with a Kremlin-linked attorney offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. "It raises a host of potential criminal and other legal violations for Donald Jr. and others involved, including his brother-in-law Jared Kushner; Paul Manafort, the campaign chairman at the time; and perhaps the president himself," the two wrote. "The promised Russian 'documents and information' would have been an illegal campaign contribution from a foreign government — and a priceless one." "It is now more critical than ever that the investigations by the special prosecutor and Congress be allowed to complete their course without White House or other interference," they wrote.

Trump exposed another delusion today as well, that Vladimir Putin preferred HIllary Clinton for President. Contrary to fact, assessment of thousands of US national security agents, legislators, cyber and national security experts and just about everyone else. Trump's delusions are grasping for vacuums.

Chaos reigns in the White House.

July 11: There has never been a more treasonous criminal. Trump colluded with Russia to become President of the United States, the biggest black mark the country has ever had (except for slavery).

Trump and his team claims all this is fake news, that there is no evidence. BUT, TODAY, TRUMP'S SON, DON JR., RELEASED EMAILS THAT PROVE IT. The tip of the iceberg of treason exposed.

For Don Jr.'s June 9, 2016 eager meeting with a Russian government lawyer – a meeting Trump saw as so important that Trump also sent Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner – an associate of Don Jr. started an email chain with Don Jr. establishing that Putin had damaging information against Hillary Clinton for Trump's use (notably, Russian-hacked emails of the DNC) that Putin wanted to hand over to Trump to provide criminal support for Trump's campaign for president, insinuating an attack on the US in coordination with Trump. (The meeting was in Trump Tower and Trump was 'in the building'. A photograph shows Trump meeting with the Russian government lawyer and Don Jr.'s contact who set up the June 9 meeting, although this could be a different meeting than the June 9 meeting between the Russian lawyer, Don. Jr., Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner. We already know that there were many meetings with Russian spies with the Trump campaign in Trump Tower, and elsewhere.) Don Jr.'s contact with Russia wrote, "This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump (for president) and would be very useful to your father." Don Jr.'s view, "if it's what you say I love it especially later in the summer." Collusion, coordination and treason with the Russian government against the US.

Trump and his close supporters, many now in the White House, lied about this and all Russian meetings for over a year. On Saturday, Don Jr. began 4 days of specific lies about the June 9, 2916 meeting, releasing emails today because they were about to be published in the New York Times. Trump designed the first lie Saturday, claiming that the treasonous meeting was actually about adoption. Then, Trump said that Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner were not informed about the meeting. However, Don Jr. forwarded the email chain to them AND they attended the meeting. Today, Trump bragged about his son's transparency about the meeting the Trump team denied for over a year.

July 11: Trump made available to hackers access to credit card numbers and security codes for 'guests' to his 14 hotels. The latest breach comes months after the Trump organization was forced to pay $50,000 to New York state after it failed to notify customers immediately after data breaches in 2015 led to the theft of at least 70,000 credit card numbers and 300 Social Security numbers. Trump probably video taped his guests in their rooms as well.

July 11: The incompetence, corruption, dishonesty and malfeasance of this admin will lead to tragedy of epic dimensions before this is over. (Steve Schmidt, Campaign Manager for John McCain campaign for president)

Trump and Putin are obliterating the reputation and meaning of the USA. They have set up the executive branch of government as a criminal enterprise determine to infect the judicial branch. The legislative branch is rubber stamping the assault.

July 10: Trump called his fired FBI Director, James Comey, a criminal again today. False of course. It's amazing that Trump calls so many others criminals to hide his criminality. Trump can do nothing but dishonor America.

July 9: Even the Pope sees it. Pope Francis issued a stark warning against “dangerous” international alliances, including between the U.S. and Russia, on Saturday. The Pope said that he was afraid of "very dangerous alliances among [foreign] powers that have a distorted vision of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin and [Syrian President Bashar] Assad in the war in Syria." Previously, the dishonorable Trump called the Pope's comments “disgraceful.”

July 9: More Trump collusion with Russia and treason against the US for election aid reported by White House staff, who see Don Jr. as Trump's Fredo character from the Godfather movies. June 9, 2016, Trump sent his son, Don. Jr., to meet with a Russian lawyer affiliated with Putin to gather 'dirt' to use against Hillary Clinton, Putin's arch villain. The lawyer said that Trump was "longing for" the information "badly." So enticing, Don Jr. brought collusion collaborators Paul Manafort and Jared Kushner. All admitted lying about the meeting, failing to report the meeting to the US government until it was exposed. With Trump, nothing but lies and violations of law and the Constitution against the American people.

Saturday, July 8, when first asked about the meeting, Don. Jr. said it was about abortion. The next day, confronted with the published story, Don Jr. admitted it was about collusion to win the election for his father.

Before arranging a meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer he believed would offer him compromising information about Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump Jr. was informed in an email that the material was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy, according to three people with knowledge of the email. (New York Times) Don Jr. confirmed he went to the meeting to get dirt on Clinton.

Trump knew that Russia hacked DNC computers before anyone else, learning about it from Don Jr.'s June 9 meeting. A few weeks later, Russia began releasing batches of DNC emails to get Trump elected, following through on its deal with Trump. Also in July, Trump urged Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's computer.

Trump and Putin are US' two biggest adversaries.

July 7: Putin got what he wanted, Trump caved to Putin. Other than thanking Putin for the White House, forging warmth with Russia, accepting Putin's assurance that Russia did not interfere with the US election regardless of what the entire US national security community concluded last year, and giving Putin a major victory at the G20 in Hamburg, Germany, Trump had nothing to do today...except, he attacked Hillary Clinton's campaign manager by Tweet. Podesta responded, "Pulled in for a pit stop in E. Fairmont W. Va. to see that our whack job POTUS is tweeting about me at the G20. Get a grip man, the Russians committed a crime when they stole my emails to help get you elected President. First, I had nothing to do with the Democratic National Committee — I chaired Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. So there was no DNC server for me to refuse to give and I was never asked for one. Second, the CIA has no role in domestic intelligence-gathering — in fact, it’s prohibited The crime the Russians committed, as the intelligence community has concluded, was for the purpose of helping Trump get elected president. So the responsible thing for a U.S. president to do, in these circumstances, is to have the backbone to stand up against Russian interference in U.S. democracy — not to question, as Trump did on Thursday, the competence of our own intelligence community and to publicly doubt, once again, the conclusion that Russia was behind the hacking." (Trumps Tweet: "Everyone here(at G20 in Hamburg, Germany) is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!")

To further damage US national security, Trump agreed to cooperate with Putin regarding 'cybersecurity', Russia's most potent weapon against the US. Republicans in Congress applaud. President Ronald Reagan would be enraged.

The Russian government announced that Trump accepted Putin's denial of any Russian involvement in the US election and cyberattacks against US government and businesses.

Trump is confirming to the world that he is unfit to be President of the United States of America. Germany's Angela Merkel is now widely regarded as leader of the free world, replacing the US President. Before dominant at G20 summits, the US now stands alone and ridiculed by the world.

July 6: Yet another abuse of power and violation of the US Constitution. Blackmailing CNN in its merger with Time-Warner because CNN covers Trump.

Memo to Putin in preparation for Trump meeting. We undertook the most successful covert political influence campaign since World War II. We kept our nemesis Hillary Clinton out of the White House, and we installed a president who is deepening existing schisms in his country while creating new ones at home and abroad. This is the first time in history that the United States has been attacked by another country and not come together as a nation; instead, our actions have caused it to come apart. This is a great victory for us. (Michael Morell, deputy director of the CIA from 2010 to 2013 and twice served as acting director.)

July 6: Trump is the biggest friend Russian ever had. In Poland, Trump attacked President Obama, attacked US national security agencies, attacked the news media, trying like Putin to call any press coverage as fake news, and diluted blame for massive interference in the 2016 election by Russia. Trump is the weakest among the weak.

July 4: Trump has so corrupted and demoralized his supporters that they insist that NPR's sharing the text for our founding document, the Declaration of Independence, is biased fake news. Trump has trained Republicans and millions of voters to hate America.

Like all weak leaders, Trump spends most of his day attacking journalists rather than being president. Continuing his promotion of violence against the media during the campaign, July 2 Trump published a video to 33 million supporters wherein he attacks a man represented as CNN, punching, body slamming and taking to the ground. Disgusting behavior from a small man, though the official policy of the President of the United States.

July 1: I think something much greater is happening, and that is that we are in the midst of a malignant presidency. That malignancy is known to the military leaders of the country. It's known to the Republican leadership in Congress who recognize it, and it's known to the intelligence community. That has got our leaders worried. They are worried about his character. They are worried about his capabilities. They are worried about his temperament and state of his temperament, to use kind words here. This President is not in control of the presidency in a way that it is functioning, and that has got our leaders worried. (Carl Bernstein)

July 1: Trump called journalist Mika Brzezinski "dumb as a rock," following his attack of her as "low IQ", "crazy" and "bleeding from the face" (false, and falsely blamed on a botched facde lift). This is the official policy of the President of the United States, a laughing stock his whole adult life.

June 30: Trump now wants TrumpCare to mean total repeal of ObamaCare with replacement at some unknown future date. Trump is determined to bring disaster one way or another.

Trump has made lying the official policy of the US government.

June 30: During the campaign, on behalf of Trump, Michael Flynn reached out to Russian hackers to attack computers of US citizens to help get Trump elected. This is collusion against the US. This week, the White House and Fox News (Trump state TV) says 'no big deal'.

Every day, Trump proves he is unfit.

June 30: Trump is disbanding an office President Obama created that focuses on gender equity, White House Council on Women and Girls. Trump only abuses women.

June 30: AFTER HIS latest execrable tweets, it’s obvious that there is no point in urging President Trump to act with greater dignity, respect for his office or, for that matter, self-respect. It isn’t going to happen. That makes it all the more urgent for the rest of us to think about how to safeguard civility and democratic values until his presidency ends. What gives us hope is the conviction that the American people are better than the misogyny and rudeness we see spewing from the White House. Our politics have always been rough-and-tumble, but most of us don’t want to see this kind of ugliness become the dominant trait. We should all be focused on preserving a little flame of decency so that, whenever the Trump era ends, that flame can be rekindled into the kind of discourse that would make the country proud again. (Washington Post editors)

Trump is ruining the importance of America and is trashing the office held by George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy. Merely a few days before July 4, the celebration day for USA, Trump spit on us again.

Trump has redefined the meaning of Republican to bigots, misogynists and at war with American ideals.

June 30: It is the official position of the President of the United States that women are disgusting, that their looks defines them, that there is something satanic about women's blood and that strong women are crazy. Trump likes to call women "fat pigs." Trump brags that he has gotten away with serial sexual assault. "Grab them by their pussy," he recommends. It is also the official position of the President to lie and diminish the United States.

Trump has unleashed the dilapidating prestige of the White House against Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski. They responded to Trump's egregious attack from the Oval Office. "Trump claims that we asked to join him at Mar-a-Lago three nights in a row. That is false. He also claimed that he refused to see us. That is laughable. The president-elect invited us both to dinner on Dec. 30. Joe attended because Mika did not want to go. After listening to the president-elect talk about his foreign policy plans, Joe was asked by a disappointed Mr. Trump the next day if Mika could also visit Mar-a-Lago that night. She reluctantly agreed to go. After we arrived, the president-elect pulled us into his family’s living quarters with his wife, Melania, where we had a pleasant conversation. We politely declined his repeated invitations to attend a New Year’s Eve party, and we were back in our car within 15 minutes.

A company, a school district, a church and any responsible business owner would fire Trump for his attacks on women.

What parent would allow their children to say what Trump says against women, Muslims and Hispanics?

June 29: Much of the issue with Trump is not about party, policy or ideology, but lack of decency, honesty, character, temperament, adulthood, shame. (Preet Bharara, US Attorney)

June 29: Trump ordered data mining for his re-election and friends in Russia of voter rolls of all 50 states, specifically the full first and last names of all registrants, middle names or initials if available, addresses, dates of birth, political party, social security number if available, and voter history from 2006 onward. And, to upload this information to a non-secure server easily hacked for disastrous widespread identity theft. Privacy and security be damned.

Since hacking the election worked so well for Trump, he decided to simply use the US federal government rather than Russia to collect voter records, and sell them to the highest bidders.

Update: As of July 4, 44 states have refused. Bravo.

Trump has changed the presidency from world leader to world's leading bigot, misogynist, conspiracy theorist, white supremacist, fascist, dunce and threat to security. The worst role model for our children.

June 29: Listening to Trump, he is the biggest victim in the world. Nobody he thinks are important like him. So he explodes with insults. Today, saying he was bullied by a female journalist, Trump's insult was for Mika Brzezinski, who according to Trump pleaded to meet him 3 days in a row at Mar-a-Lago but he refused because she was bleeding from the face from a face lift. Trump also said that Brzezinski has a low IQ. Trump supporters laugh. Someday, they will realize that Trump is laughing at them. Trump is the puniest president in the world.

Last year, Trump mocked Fox News' host Megyn Kelly for menstruating.

Trump also tried to blackmail the two journalists, threatening to use his manipulation of The National Enquirer to publish a salacious story about the two unless they apologized.

Because of Trump America is in its biggest decline in history.

Supporters of Trump have no respect for the United States of America.

Trump and White House press briefings should end. They are nothing but lies and arrogant attacks on democracy, Americans, government agencies, Congress and decency.

June 28: Bravo Chuck Todd. Finally, some wisdom. NBC News host Chuck Todd went after the Trump administration today for running a "war on the truth." Todd's was defending rival news network CNN from White House criticism. "I'm obsessed with the White House's war on the press and on media. Let's be clear about this, that war is nothing less than a war on the truth," Todd said on his show "MTP Daily."Todd said the difference between the White House and the press is that if the media makes a mistake, they will "run a correction and in some cases people lose their jobs."The NBC anchor suggested that the White House takes advantage of the press needing to correct and apologize for an incorrect story, while the White House can feed false information publicly. "And of course that's the point, isn't it? Of course the White House attacks, delegitimizes the media to create running room for its own events. It is as old as the media itself. The White House is not above using anonymous sources to criticize the use of anonymous sources in order to promote what it admits is a lie to call others liars," he said. (The Hill)

June 27: Trump notoriously funnelled charity money to his businesses and personal expenses. So did his layer, Jay Sekulow. Sekulow's nonprofit Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (CASE) and its sister organization, the American Center for Legal Justice, have paid millions of dollars to the Sekulow family (first reported 2005).

June 27: Trump is the biggest producer, inspiration and benefitter of fake news. Today's example: hanging in several of his businesses is a large FAKE Time Magazine cover, dated March 1, 1999, showing him on the cover. Time demanded its removal.

Trump's entire business career and political campaign was based on fakery.

Wrong to do is not necessarily illegal. Trump and Fox News says that collusion with Russia to win the presidency is not illegal. Nevertheless, it is very wrong. Parents expect far better behavior and decisions from their children that what is not illegal. Rightfully, we expect more from our employers, government and friends that what is not illegal.

Most violations of the US Constitution are not illegal. Breaking most of the Commandments or other tenets of religion are not illegal. Legality is a minimum bar. America's ideals demand far more.

June 27: Across the world, more people distrust Trump (74%) than Putin (59%). 9 out of 10 view Trump as arrogant, 7 out of ten as dangerous. Because of Trump, respect for America is falling substantially.

Trump has taken us to an alternate reality with alternative facts. Truth is irrelevant, to be shunned. Personal business deals with the President are more valuable than legitimate commerce. Bigotry and retribution outweigh freedom and nurturing. Internet trolling has become public policy. Once admirable ideals have become contentious evils. Health care, for example, has become a despicable liberal conspiracy. American leadership has become a joke. National security has become a witch hunt. The Constitution has become trash. Muslims, the poor and anything Obama are to be ridiculed. Children are to be bathed in lies and hate. A better future is a thing of the past.

June 25: So guilty of colluding with Russia and obstructing justice that Trump blamed Obama for colluding with Russia and obstructing justice. Like a child caught in the act, Trump blames others for his actions and motivations.

Note to Trump. Obama is not under investigation. You are.

June 25: This is how far we have come with Trump. His 'state tv', Fox News, says that Trump's collusion with Russia is not a crime.

It's treason.

June 25: Trump saying that "it is possible" that there were recordings of his conversations with FBI Director James Comey. Lying to Congress, no big deal for Trump (he said he made no recordings to Congress).

June 25: Trump is so proud at calling TrumpCare mean that he is attacking Obama for also calling it mean. Trump diagnosed it first. Trump thinks he owns the trademark for the 'mean'.

Even more incredible, Trump is blaming Obama for Trump's collusion with Russia to win the election.

June 24: Trump claimed health care was easy, quick and cheap. He's made it a mess. He claimed that there would be no cuts in Medicaid. TrumpCare calls for nearly $1 trillion in cuts. He claimed Mid-East peace would be easy. It's a mess and is giving up with the Israelis and Palestinians. He claimed quick solutions to North Korea. It's a mess. He claimed he converted China into his close friend. Now he says it's not working out. He boasted about jobs at Carrier, auto and other companies. They are laying off thousands. He boasted that he convinced Ford to not move to Mexico. They are moving to China instead. He promised incredible infrastructure. No where in sight. He promised a wonderful wall against Mexico. It's going nowhere. He promised brilliant management. The White House is a disaster. He promised to be ethical. Instead, he relies primarily on lobbyists and secret business partners. He has funneled tens of millions of dollars of taxpayer money to his businesses. He is a laughing stock in Europe. Trump has always been a litany of lies. Before, he damaged lives only of his creditors and employees. Now, he is damaging millions of lives. And, he has yet to do anything about the biggest attack by an adversary against the US, Russia's cyber war except to encourage it.

June 23: Two-faced Trump. Trump says Russian election interference to get him elected is a hoax. BUT, Trump also says that Obama failed to stop it, thus affirming that it happened. (all experts, the entire national intelligence community, foreign intelligence agencies, congressional Republicans and Democrats, Trump Cabinet secretaries and facts say that there was Russian interference; Trump's treason, lies, cover ups, obstructions of justice, witness intimidations and abuses of power do not change the facts)

June 23: Early last August, an envelope with extraordinary handling restrictions arrived at the White House. Sent by courier from the CIA, it carried “eyes only” instructions that its contents be shown to just four people: President Barack Obama and three senior aides. Inside was an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race. But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and help elect her opponent, Donald Trump. In political terms, Russia’s interference was the crime of the century, an unprecedented and largely successful destabilizing attack on American democracy. (Washington Post) Thus, Trump is an illegitimate US president hand picked by Vladimir Putin, Trump's illicit business partner. Dutifully, Trump defends Russia and Putin at every turn. Trump treason.

It is despicable that so many elected Republicans and Trump supporters endorse Russian takeover of the US presidency. Nearly as despicable is that so many elected Democrats argue only that we cannot let this happen again.

June 23: Trump claimed that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, FBI Director James Comey, Democrats and Republican Committees are in (criminal) collusion against him. Yet another lie and obstruction of justice.

Trump is orchestrating the mass murder of tens of thousands of defenseless civilians, disproportionately children, in Iraq and Syria. Eg, in Raqqa, Syria, Trump is destroying entire neighborhoods but doing nothing for desperate residents and those trying to flee for their lives. History will record a dark chapter for America and further alienation of hundreds of millions of people against the US.

Trump's life is based on lies. For 5 months, Trump has been infusing lies into the federal government on behalf of America's leading adversary. The successes that lies gave his business career will do the opposite for the country. It will be recognized in history that Trump endeavored to ruin the United States with his obsession to protect his ego at the expense of the everyone else.

It is profoundly unfortunate that we elect politicians, who gerrymander law, policy and regulation as they gerrymander voting districts. They waste our time, our resources and our vitality. Rather than improve our lives they enrichen themselves and their financial benefactors. The rest of us are merely little people.

June 22: Once again with disrespect, Trump claiming that investigations by 4 Republican committees, the Dept. of Justice, Special Prosecutor and the FBI are merely a Democrat hoax. No, they are real and they are about the worst attack in history against US democracy, worst interference with an election and ongoing cyber attacks by Russia...none of which Trump will fix.

October 7, 2016, the US Dept. of Homeland Security announced, "The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities." BUT, the media were too busy with Trump diversions to cover the story, leaving voters uninformed.

June 22: For 6 weeks, Trump has been playing with Americans about whether his conversations with FBI Director James Comey were recorded. Today, further disrespecting all of us, Trump said he did not make recordings but cannot rule out if anyone else did (eg, Jared Kushner, Steve Bannon). Or, maybe Trump destroyed the evidence.

Another game Trump evolves. Today, live audio or video coverage of the White House press conference is banned. Trump uses games to cover up his damage to the US.

Trump cannot acknowledge Russia's cyber and social media attack because he knows that it happened, that he encouraged it, that he has several illicit business partnerships with Russia and that his election is illegitimate. For vanity and profit, Trump is selling out America, misleading Americans, damaging US allies and inspiring new generations of terrorists at home and abroad.

Trump treats his rally audiences as stooges, acting like a bad comedian, using punch lines to get his supporters to embrace conspiracy theories and laugh at the US Constitution, truth, public service, health care, medical and scientific research, the environment, education, national security, Muslims, the poor and American values. Trump treats immigrants, which most of us are either directly or indirectly through our past, as enemies.

Trump has convinced almost everyone, it seems, that the only murders that matter are those committed by terrorists (falsely) claiming to be Muslims. TV media go wall-to-wall with coverage with a murder or attempted murder in the US only if it is possibly linked to 'terrorism'. Never mind that all murder is terrorism. Never mind the tens of thousands killed in the US by non-Muslims. Eg, 1,300 children/year are murdered and there are 6,000 mostly-intentional non-fatal gunshot wounds. Prescription drugs keep killing 100,000+ Americans every year (eg, there are 20,000+ prescription opiod deaths a year, and millions are addicted and living horrible lives). Nearly 330,000 injuries occur each year from accidents caused by texting while driving. 1 out of every 4 car accidents in the United States is caused by texting and driving. Foreign terrorists are one of the least likely causes of morbidity and mortality in the US, but Trump and TV media falsely treat them as public enemy number one.

By actively neglecting cyber defense, convincing his supporters that Russia's attack is fake news and undermining investigation of the deepest attack against the US, Trump is promoting the degradation of US democracy in concert with Russia. In parallel, Trump is breaking health care, government agencies and respect for the US Constitution.

Similarly motivated by profits as Trump, TV media are playing right along. 24 hours a day on several channels, it's all simply continuous 'breaking news' devoid of serious conclusions. An array of social media and blog outlets inspire delusional troll noise.

Trump, his surrogates and his conspiracy theory TV/radio/web sites have successfully weaponized the public's short attention span. Daily diversions rule the day.

Sooner or later, when they realize that Trump is manipulating them for personal gain, Americans will revolt.

June 21: "[O]ur Constitution is only as powerful as the will of our people to enforce it. Trump’s reflexive use of official statements to lie about facts large and small, and his directing of his staff to do the same through the media, are redolent of the Nixon White House, even as Washington shakes almost daily to the sonic booms of revelations. Constitution and courage — both are needed to get to the bottom of crimes and abuses of power, but ultimately it is up to Americans to hold their government to account." (Lowell Weiker, former Republican senator from Connecticut and its former governor)

June 21: Eventually, the one-third of voters who support Trump will figure out what the other two-thirds know. That Trump lies, spins bogus conspiracy theories and is degrading America's institutions while reaping large business profits. Trump's firing of agency experts and managers and press office diversions will, hopefully before long-term damage is done, be recognized by all.

Sadly, TV media are content at servicing Trump's reality TV show for their ratings. Only the print press, most notably the Washington Post and New York Times, are functioning as journalists.

Rather than believe and act upon all US national intelligence agencies and Congressional conclusions regarding factual manipulation of the 2016 election, Trump has manufactured history's largest fake conspiracy theory to discredit the US in favor of Russia. Trump exonerates Russia's involvement, blaming US national intelligence agencies', FBI's, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller's and Republicans' in Conress investigations as fake news and a grand conspiracy.

June 21: Trump has yet to do anything to address or curtail the largest attack on US democracy in history, Russia's cyber attack to tilt the election to Trump. Trump is owned by Russia.

Since inauguration January 20, there have been several hundreds of lawsuit plaintiffs against Trump. Trump is already the most sued president in history.

June 20: All top people in the White House have hired personal lawyers to deflect their crimes, including Trump, Pence, Kushner and Sessions.

June 19: Russia issued a stark warning to the U.S. Monday, saying it will treat U.S.-led coalition planes in Syria that fly west of the Euphrates River as targets.

June 18: In addition to swinging the election to Trump, Russia renewed several trademarks for Trump during 2016. Trump is such an easy mark for Russia.

Trump also given 39 trademarks in China since inauguration.

June 16: Trump reported that he is getting richer now that he is President, what he predicted would happen during the campaign. Half of Trump's income comes from golf courses. Eric Trump says the funding for those courses comes from Russia. How much of the 'Emolumental growth' in Trump's wealth will be traced to Russia's kleptocracy? BUT, Trump still has hundreds of millions in debt, including to money launderers and undoubtedly Russia.

June 16: Described by advisers and confidants, Trump is yelling at TV sets at the White House.

June 16: The United States Commission on Civil Rights launched a two-year civil rights probe into Trump’s administration.

June 16: Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller has hired 13 lawyers for his Trump investigation; additional appointments are likely.

June 16: Sen. Dianne Feinstein said that she is "growing increasingly concerned" that Trump will try to fire special counsel Robert Mueller, who is overseeing the investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election, and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. "The message the president is sending through his tweets is that he believes the rule of law doesn’t apply to him and that anyone who thinks otherwise will be fired. That’s undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president’s oath of office."

June 16: Expanding his obstruction of justice, Trump is again attacking his own Department of Justice. After months of saying he wasn't, Trump announced today that he is under criminal investigation. Interestingly, Trump claims he is being investigated "by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director." About firing Comey, Trump claimed that he decided to do this last year and letters from the Attorney General and Deputy Attorney General were irrelevant. Trump also claimed that he fired Comey because Comey would not terminate the Russia investigation.

June 15: "In the past, by failing to pass a budget on time or eliminate the threat of sequestration, Congress sidelined itself from its active constitutional oversight role. It has blocked new programs, prevented service growth, stalled industry initiative, and placed troops at greater risk. Congress as a whole has met the present challenge with lassitude, not leadership." (Secr. Dept. of Defense, General James Mattis about Trump-intoxicated Congress)

June 15: Trump called Special Prosecutor "very bad and conflicted" and his obstuction of justice investigation a "phony story." Trump called the investigations by Republican committees in the House, Senate, Dept. of Justice, FBI as well as by the Special Prosecutor "the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history." A phony witch hunt it is not, but more Trump attempts to discredit investigators and obstruct justice according to 60% of Americans. 65% of say that Trump has little or no respect for the country's democratic institutions or traditions. 68% of Americans are at least moderately concerned Trump or his campaign associates had inappropriate links to Russia. Half of US CEOs give Trump an F, anothe 21% give Trump a D.

Today, Putin tried to help. "If Comey will be under the threat of political persecution, we are ready to accept him here."

June 15: Dennis Rodman gifted Kim Jong-un Trump's book, The Art of the Deal, Trump's proudest accomplishment even though he didn't write it.

June 14: Trump and his NY lawyer boasted this past week that Trump was vindicated because he was not under criminal investigation as of 2 months ago. A strange boast to be sure. As usual, there is a problem with this Trump boast. It's false. Assisted by his tweets, firing of FBI Director James Comey and party with Russian spies in the Oval Office last month, Trump is now the subject of criminal investigation for at least obstruction of justice and perhaps yet Russian collusion and financial fraud. The investigation began a few days after Trump fired Comey May 9 and before Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller was hired. Trump is also attacking Mueller as has been doing against Comey, the FBI, CIA, NSA and the other national intelligence agencies. Trump has achieved in 5 months what took Nixon several years, criminal investigation.

It's amazing, or to be expected, that Trump has done nothing to thwart the biggest attack against the US since Pearl Harbor, Russia's deep attack on US democracy and world leadership (in order to get Trump elected).

June 14: After previous mass shootings, Trump insisted that we need more guns, particularly in schools and bars. After today's mass shooting, and before victims' blood had dried, Don Jr. blamed a theatrical production about Ceasar. Rep. Chris Collins and Newt Gingrich blamed Democrats. Stupidity drops not far from the tree.

"I would argue the president has unleashed, partially, again not in anyway totally, but partially to blame for the demons that have been unleashed." (Rep. Mark Sanford)

Sadly, attention is focused on whether the white 66 year old US citizen is a terrorist, ie Muslim. Non-terrorist killing has lesser importance. Regardless of religion, a killer is a terrorist. All murder is a crime.

All violence is wrong. Unfortunately, extremists rely on it. Religious and political extremists. Trump churned up extremism throughout his campaign. Trump's hate mongering has consequences, which have already included violent attacks against Jews, Muslims, African Americans and today against a Republican baseball team. Congressional Democrats are being threatened. We need leaders who are aware that their words matter.

June 14: 196 members of Congress filed a lawsuit against Trump for violating the US Constitution. Bravo. There should be a class action lawsuit against Trump from every US citizen for his array of crimes against us.

June 14: 70% of real estate sold by Trump, $33 million, since election day is sold to anonymous buyers, ie shell companies, versus 4% the 2 years before. Deceit rules.

June 13: China gave Trump 6 more trademarks for his businesses. Anti-constitutional.

June 13: Trump called the House's ObamaCare repeal bill "mean" and said it should be more generous during a meeting with Republican senators, according to a Senate GOP aide.

June 13: Jeff Sessions proved that he is Attorney General In Name Only and has converted to Trump defense attorney. Notably, the last time Sessions testified under oath he lied, claiming that he did not meet "with the Russians" when in fact he did at least twice as Trump surrogate during 2016.

Notably, for months prior to inauguration, Trump and his surrogates, including Sessions, gushed with praise for FBI Director James Comey for discussing FBI investigation into candidate Hillary Clinton. Trump in particular found Comey's Clinton discussion a redeeming feature of Comey. In contrast, in response to Comey's investigation of Trump, Trump and his surrogates now say that Comey needed to be fired because of what they praised about him in 2016. And, Sessions testified that he could not remember anything he discussed with Trump during the campaign, including any discussions relating to his role in the campaign in national security. Sessions refused to answer questions about his discussions with Trump since January 20, arguing that while Trump is not invoking executive privilege now that Trump might in the future.

Sessions says that firing Comey had nothing to do with FBI Russia investigation even though Trump said it did and bragged to Russian spies that firing "nut job" Comey relieved pressure.

Asked about his discussions with Russian spies, Sessions testified that he "could not recall" if he spoke about Trump-Russia collusion. He could not say with certainty that he did not.

June 12: Trump friend Dennis Rodman on his way to North Korea to chit chat with Kim Jong-un. Crazy sends crazy to negotiate with crazy.

Trump is an unfortunate presentation of psychosis.

June 12: Mimicking Putin and Kim Jong-un, Trump humiliated his Cabinet Secretaries at their first meeting and other top officials by forcing them on camera to pledge allegiance and gush with praise for Trump. Trump boasted that he is most productive president in US history. True only if he means most degradations of America, most violations of the US Constitution, most illegality, most attacks against foreign allies, most attacks against the judiciary, most lawsuits, most losses in federal and appellate courts, most failed legislative attempts, most empty administrative posts, most promotions of terrorism and bigotry, most support of foreign opponents (most notably Russia), most suppression of the press, most firings, most protests, most lies, most chaos, most profiteering from taxpayers and most controversies.

June 12: Trump considering a deeper level of obstruction of justice, abuse of power and witness tampering. Just 2 weeks after Robert Mueller was assigned by Trump's Dept. of Justice as Special Prosecutor and only a few days after Trump announced that he would answer Mueller questions under oath, Trump sent out surrogates to the media to attack Mueller and announce that Trump is considering FIRING Mueller. Like the Watergate era, top Dept. of Justice appointees may resign. Mueller's investigation must be scaring Trump considerably.

June 11: Washington, DC and Maryland sued Trump for violating the US Constitution, specifically for profiting millions of dollars and favors from foreign governments and the US government (ie, US taxpayers). What took so long? There should be a class action lawsuit against Trump from every US citizen for his array of crimes against us.

Update: June 14: 200 Congressional Democrats sued Trump for violating the US Constitution.

June 10: Trump used munitions loaded with white phosphorus in Syria, the use of which, like thermite and napalm, in populated areas is prohibited under international law.

Last summer, House leader Kevin McCarthy noted that there were 2 Republicans probably on Putin's payroll: Trump and Dana Rohrabacher. This week, Rohrabacher said during a House hearing that a recent ISIS attack in Iran could be a "good thing" and that Trump support ISIS for attacking other terrorist groups. "Isn't a good thing for us to have the United States finally backing up Sunnis who will attack Hezbollah and the Shiite threat to us? Maybe it's a Trump strategy of actually supporting one groups against another, considering that you have two terrorist organizations." Yet another Trump threat to US and world security.

Trump is attacking Comey for sharing their conversations, but it was Trump who first disclosed them to the media. (Evan McMullin)

Donald J. Trump. The puniest president.

June 10: Trump typically claims that anyone who makes him look bad is nothing more than a rotten liar. Political opponents, beauty queens, alleged victims of sexual assault: Trump dismisses them all as fibbers and fabricators, spewing malicious falsehoods to besmirch his character and hurt his agenda. It was therefore no surprise that, following James Comey’s extraordinarily damaging testimony on Thursday, Trump accused the former FBI director of issuing “many false statements and lies” to the Senate Intelligence Committee. He then repeated this allegation at a Friday press conference and offered to go under oath to contradict Comey. Trump accused Comey of perjury, a federal crime that undermines our legal system and carries serious penalties. (Slate)

With hundreds of thousands of government employees and a massive budget, let's see if Trump can prove his charge. Or is Trump abusing his power? Will Trump again prove he is a demented clown?

Imagine how Trump and wayward Republicans will be covered in history books.

June 10: Trump's Muslim ban inspired 30+ ANTI-Muslim rallies across US.

June 10: Trump's slick lawyer works for Putin. Marc E. Kasowitz’s clients include Oleg Deripaska, a Russian oligarch who is close to President Vladimir Putin and has done business with Trump’s former campaign manager. Kasowitz also represents Sberbank, Russia’s largest state-owned bank, U.S. court records show. The Associated Press reported in March that (Paul) Manafort (Trump's campaign manager and now subject to grand jury investigation) “secretly worked for” Deripaska as far back as 2006 to influence politics and business dealings inside the United States to benefit Putin’s government. Manafort signed a $10 million annual contract beginning in 2006 and maintained a business relationship until at least 2009, the AP reported. Sherbank’s former vice president, who is now chief executive of another Russian state-owned financial institution, Vnesheconombank, met with Trump’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner, in December. Sberbank was one of the sponsors of the 2013 Miss Universe pageant in Moscow produced by Trump, who owned the competition. The deputy head of the bank at the time was Sergey Gorkov, who met with Kushner in December. Gorkov, a graduate of the academy of the Federal Security Service, or FSB, the domestic successor of the former Soviet KGB intelligence bureau, was named to head VEB in February 2016. (New York Times)

June 9: Trump, in effect, called on the world to go to war with Qatar. Less than an hour earlier, Secr. of State Rex Tillerson called for relaxation of the Arab blockade against Qatar. "The blockade is hindering U.S. military actions in the region and the campaign against ISIS," Tillerson said. Again, Trump disagrees with his Cabinet Secretaries.

June 9: More Trump obstruction of justice. Today, it's witness tampering. Trump said he is filing 2 complaints (one with the Senate, one with the Dept. of Justice) against James Comey for testifying before the Senate yesterday and Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

June 9: Trump announced from the White House Rose Garden that he is willing to testify under oath in response to Comey's testimony yesterday. About his secret audiotapes, Trump said he will answer whether they exist or not "in a very short period of time, you're going to be be very disappointed when you hear the answer." Trump wants war against James Comey, Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, and House/Senate committees investigations into his campaign.

About 10 years ago, Trump testified under oath and admitted he lied dozens of times in his business career. About the same time, about his business partners, Trump said, "Dan Sullivan was the guy that killed Jimmy Hoffa." Sullivan "probably wasn't an honest guy," Trump added, and Shapiro "was like a third-rate, local real estate Mafia."(Kenneth Shapiro, who was a bag man for the Philadelphia mob, and Daniel Sullivan, who was a Mafia associate and a labor negotiator.)

June 9: Trump's attack on Qatar is contributing to a new alliance forming among Qatar, Russia, Turkey and Iran. Trump is America's biggest security risk.

June 8: Who is lying? A proven serial liar or Director of the FBI? Trump claims that Comey lied over and over today under oath. If this is true, Trump will direct Congress to spend millions to investigate Comey for contempt and will direct his Dept. of Justice, and Russian collaborator AG Jeff Sessions, to file and prosecute several criminal charges for several instances of perjury, a felony, against Comey AND win at trial and all appeals, and ultimately send Comey to federal prison. One exemplar: Trump said he did not instruct Comey to drop the Flynn criminal investigation. Comey said he did. Black and white, either Trump or Comey is lying. Trump's case is bolstered by mysterious-yet-produced audio tapes generated by Trump. Trump's claim of tapes is probably a lie. Comey's case is bolstered by several official memos written immediately after each Trump conversation between Trump and Comey long before Comey was fired by Trump (according to Trump, for not dropping the Flynn investigation). Comey also briefed several top FBI leaders immediately after each conversation, discussing with them facts and what the FBI should do (Deputy Director of FBI Andrew McCabe, Chief of Staff to FBI Director Jim Rybicki, General Counsel FBI James Baker, Associate Deputy Director David Bowditch, National Security Branch (FBI) Carl Ghattas). Trump's pattern of lies VS Comey's pattern of consistency of candor. Without any doubt, Trump is a liar.

Trump's round of lies ensures that Trump will be investigated by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Retired judge Andrew Napolitano concluded that Comey's testimony made a "credible and compelling argument" that Trump lied to the public about why Comey was fired. "If you look...at the big picture...you get a very, very credible and compelling argument that the president of the United States has not been truthful with the American people"

June 8: In 137 day, Trump has made 623 false and misleading claims. Today's examples....Trump declared 2 days ago that he was not invoking executive privilege regarding Comey's testimony. Today, Trump claimed that Comey released privileged information. And, Trump claimed that Comey lied under oath...but Trump will not tell us what he says is the truth.

June 8: Trump proclaimed he won today via his $1,500/hour criminal defense attorney, and later via Trump tweet. Under oath, in contrast to Trump and his consigliere, FBI Director James Comey (fired by Trump to obstruct justice) testified that Trump lied repeatedly, attacked the FBI and directed Comey to drop an active FBI criminal investigation. Comey was horrified that Trump boasted with Russian spies how he reduced pressure on them all by firing "nut job" Comey. About the audio tapes that Trump said he had regarding his private uneasy meetings with Comey, Comey said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes, release them all" and that he was stunned when Trump ushered the Vice President, Chief of Staff, Attorney General and Jared Kushner out of the room to have surreptitious access to Comey to direct Comey to drop an active criminal investigation. The testimony was a no win for Trump.

Everything Trump does and says about Russia, the Trump-Russia investigation and collusion, and US national intelligence agencies and FBI wreaks of guilt.

June 8: Russia attacked the US for Trump and Trump welcomed it. Trump and his surrogates (elected representatives, staff and lobbyists) attack anyone who disapproves of Russia's attack and Trump's embrace and encouragement of it. Like Russia, Trump sees America as a threat. One example, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, bragging about it to Russia's top 2 spies, calling Comey a nut job and defaming the FBI, the US military and US national security agencies. Trump also is actively defaming US allies, weakening NATO, motivating terrorists and preferentially building alliances with dictators. Trump is 'ruling' the US like the movie characterization of a mafia godfather. In Russia's favor, Trump oversees the most dysfunctional and treasonous presidency in US history.

June 8: Republicans are celebrating Comey's testimony because Comey said prior to March 2017, Trump was not a specific target of FBI spy investigation (Comey did not address what is happening at FBI since March and what Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is investigating). Trump released a statement proclaiming that he was vindicated. Only Trump's associates and family are targets, and Trump wants them investigated. Trump only required Comey's loyalty to Trump rather than the Constitution or Comey's oath taken as FBI Director. That Trump directed Comey to stop a federal investigation into Michael Flynn, and when he did not was fired, doesn't mean all that much. That Trump's campaign finances and campaign collusion with Russia for crimes and treason are being investigated are ho hum. So what Trump's crimes and misdemeanors are far greater than Nixon's, for which he was impeached and resigned from office. So what if Trump mostly lies. So what that Trump and his staff and family have so many hidden and lied-about relationships with the Russian government but not the US government. So what so little is being done for Americans with Republicans in charge of all three branches of the federal government. Republicans are celebrating! And, broadcasting a national ad trashing Comey, a Republican, for his decades of service in the Department of Justice, casting Comey as a junior employee who did little in his career (impeccable career as a US Attorney, Deputy Director of Dept. of Justice, FBI Director, and several other executive positions in the private sector, and respected by 35,000+ FBI employees). With these kind of Republicans, why should they ever be elected? Republicans should read the US Constitution and study the intensity of our founding 'fathers'. Then, they could handle the truth about Trump.

For Comey's testimony, Trump huddled in White House dining room with layers, including Putin's lawyer.

June 7: Shame on Trump's Director of National Security and NSA Director who refused legitimate questions from Senators about what Trump told them (reported by several sources that they downplay the Russian investigations in public and derail FBI investigation of Michael Flynn). Since Trump did not invoke 'executive privilege', they had no legal basis to not answer oversight questions, and the National Security Director said so. These officers work for and are paid by taxpayers, not Trump. They did not take a (public) oath to Trump and are extending Trump's obstruction of justice and abuse of power, and now contempt of the Senate.

Regarding Congressional, FBI, DOJ and Special Prosecutor investigations, what is Trump afraid of? What is Trump hiding? Why is Trump's cover up so robust? Crimes and treason.

Trump boasted for years that he knows more than anyone else how to run the country, its administration and its military. His apologists in Congress and lobby firms insist that his monumental errors and wrongdoing are simply because his is incompetent, a New Yorker and Trump doesn't understand that he is the President. (if Trump is as incompetent as his supporters now say, Trump should be removed from office) Consider this kind of excuse for a murderer. I didn't know that a bullet shot out of a gun was strong enough to rip through the body and actually kill someone. People tell me this is fake news. It's on the Internet. Who knew, Trump often says. And, Trump's apologists claim that he cannot be charged with a crime anyway.

June 7: Truth and honor VS lies and dishonor. Trump VS Comey. Today, James Comey, fired as FBI Director by Trump because Comey would not stop the Russia investigation, not pledge loyalty and not comply with Trump's obstruction of justice, released his opening statement for his Senate testimony for tomorrow. As if a Godfather movie, Trump demanded loyalty to him rather than the US Constitution or Comey's oath. Trump directed Comey to clear Trump of wrongdoing. Trump claimed that he did not use Russian prostitutes. Trump, building his defense for high crimes and misdemeanors, ie impeachment, indicated that his associates might be illegally interacting with Russian spies. So stunning what Trump said to Comey in 9 one-on-one conversations, Comey immediately created memos. "Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward. This had not been my practice in the past." About his January 27 White House dinner with Trump, Comey noted, "My instincts told me that the one-on-one setting, and the pretense that this was our first discussion about my position, meant the dinner was, at least in part, an effort to have me ask for my job and create some sort of patronage relationship. That concerned me greatly, given the FBI’s traditionally independent status in the executive branch The President said, "I need loyalty, I expect loyalty."" Trump repeatedly defended Michael Flynn, a Russian agent who Trump fired and National Security Director. "I took the opportunity to implore the Attorney General to prevent any future direct communication between the President and me."

Comparing this to Nixon is unfair. Nixon did not obstruct an investigation of Russian subversive activity or any other threat to US security. (Richard Painter)

During a press conference last month, Trump was asked whether he urged Comey “in any way, shape, or form to close or to back down the investigation into Michael Flynn.” “No. No. Next question,” Trump gruffly responded. Clearly, Trump lied. Trump repeatedly directed Comey to 'remove the cloud'. Trump knew he was acting illegally because he repeatedly asked others (eg, the VP, the Attorney General, his Chief of Staff, and Jared Kushner) to leave the room when he pressured Comey.

Trump responded, without denying ANYTHING Comey wrote in his opening statement, that Comey's statement "totally vindicates" him. It does not. A far from completed investigation cannot vidicate anyone in anyway. And, Comey was fired a month ago, and thus cannot address what Special Prosecutor Robert Meuller, the DOJ or any other federal agency is doing. Trump is delusional and should be removed from office and treated.

Clearly, Comey did not turst Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Nor did the senior FBI officers dealing with Trump's command meetings/phone calls with Comey as they were occurring.

When Comey would not comply with Trump's directives to stop investigation, Trump fired Comey and bragged about it in the Oval Office with Russia's top 2 spies.

June 7: Because Gov. Chris Cristie's defense lawyer was able to derail criminal charges against Christie, Trump will nominate this lawyer, Christopher A. Wray, for FBI Director.

June 7: More Trump lies as we have come to expect. Trump claimed that Saudi Arabia is purchasing $110 billion in military arms and will invest hundreds of billions in the US to create millions of jobs. False. They only, maybe, talked about it. No agreements, no contracts. Saudi Arabia, Trump's best new friend, produced 15 out of the 17 plane hijackers behind the 9/11 attack. Trump is showing he can be bought and sold again and again.

June 7: "I think (if) you compare the two, that Watergate pales really in my view compared to what we're confronting now,” former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said of Trump-Putin interference with US democracy. So the question is: How long can these assaults go on and the institutions not be irrevocably damaged?"

Flashback. August 8, 2016. Fifty of the nation’s most senior Republican national security officials, many of them former top aides or cabinet members for President George W. Bush, have signed a letter declaring that Donald J. Trump “lacks the character, values and experience” to be president and “would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.” Mr. Trump, the officials warn, “would be the most reckless president in American history.” The letter says Mr. Trump would weaken the United States’ moral authority and questions his knowledge of and belief in the Constitution. It says he has “demonstrated repeatedly that he has little understanding” of the nation’s “vital national interests, its complex diplomatic challenges, its indispensable alliances and the democratic values” on which American policy should be based. And it laments that “Mr. Trump has shown no interest in educating himself.” (New York Times)

June 6: More obstruction of justice. Director of Natioal Intelligence Dan Coates told associates when it happened that Trump directed him to lie about the Trump-Russia investigation AND pressure FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation. On March 22, less than a week after being confirmed by the Senate, Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats attended a briefing at the White House together with officials from several government agencies. As the briefing was wrapping up, Trump asked everyone to leave the room except for Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. The president then started complaining about the FBI investigation and Comey’s handling of it, said officials familiar with the account Coats gave to associates. Two days earlier, Comey had confirmed in a congressional hearing that the bureau was probing whether Trump’s campaign coordinated with Russia during the 2016 race. After the encounter, Coats discussed the conversation with other officials and decided that intervening with Comey as Trump had suggested would be inappropriate. The interaction with Coats indicates that Trump aimed to enlist top officials to have Comey curtail the bureau’s probe, (Washington Post)

June 6: The day after President Trump asked James B. Comey, the F.B.I. director, to end an investigation into his former national security adviser, Mr. Comey confronted Attorney General Jeff Sessions and said he did not want to be left alone again with the president, according to current and former law enforcement officials. Mr. Comey believed Mr. Sessions should protect the F.B.I. from White House influence, the officials said, and pulled him aside after a meeting in February to tell him that private interactions between the F.B.I. director and the president were inappropriate. But Mr. Sessions could not guarantee that the president would not try to talk to Mr. Comey alone again, the officials said. Mr. Comey’s unwillingness to be alone with the president reflected how deeply Mr. Comey distrusted Mr. Trump, who Mr. Comey believed was trying to undermine the F.B.I.’s independence as it conducted a highly sensitive investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, the officials said. (New York Times)

June 6: White House announced that Trump's tweets are official statements.

June 6: Attorney General Jeff Sessions is considering resignation, sensing that Trump intends to fire him. Trump will not say anymore he has confidence in Sessions.

June 6: Canada's Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland on Tuesday criticized the United States for abandoning its role as a global leader, and called on Canada to step up in response.

June 6: Trump's charity foundation funneled, ie laundered, $100,000 in donations meant for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital into revenue for the Trump Organization by using his son's charity. A small crime for Trump. He prefers bigger ones.

June 6: Trump worsening security again. On top of provoking terrorism in England, Trump took credit, inspired by fake news from Russia, for the separation of Qatar, an important US military partner, from Saudi Arabia, Trump's new dictator friend and motivator for ISIS and Al Qaeda, and other Arab countries. The Pentagon disagreed with Trump's Qatar attack, noting that the US has a large military base with over 10,000 US soldiers in Qatar with the permission of its government. Oops, Trump didn't think about these soldiers now at greater risk.

Through his lies, bigotry, racism, sexism, mismanagement, greed, paranoia, hate for Muslims and Latinos, praise for dictators and enemies of democracy, criminal proclivities and personality disorder, Trump is the world's biggest threat to security.

June 5: Trump's election sugar daddy, Vladimir Putin, joined Trump in blaming US national intelligence agencies and US civilian hackers for their conspiracy against Trump. Neither agree that Russia interfered with the US election, contrary to 17 US national security agencies, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and leading tech experts.

June 5: More unconstitutional Trump greed. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has paid Trump International Hotel nearly $270,000 through its Washington, D.C. lobbying firm over the past several months, new foreign lobbying disclosure filings show. The payments were made for hotel rooms and catering services for dozens of U.S. veterans who the lobbying firm recruited as part of an influence campaign aimed at watering down legislation that could put Saudi Arabia on the hook financially for the 9/11 attacks.

June 5: Trump blaming Democrats for his empty administration. The facts, as usual, show that Trump is to blame. 442—No nominee. 15—Named but awaiting nomination. 63—Formally nominated. 39—Confirmed. Clearly, Trump is the problem.

June 5: Trump is only interested in murders he can blame on Muslims, correctly or not. Today, 5 were killed and 7 were injured in Orlando in a workplace shooting spree. No problem with Trump. Muslims not involved. (daily, gun violence kills 90 in the US; Trump's only concern is any discussion of the murder weapons)

June 5: "There are serious concerns about this president's mental stability, and there are serious problems when you have a president of the United States who is so erratic, so unreliable. This is incredibly damaging." (Jennifer Rubin, conservative columnist)

June 5: For second day in a row, Trump attacked the mayor of London, a Muslim, during his handling of a terrorist attack over the weekend killing 7 and wounding 48. London's mayor responded, We aren't going to allow anybody, whether it's Donald Trump or anybody else to divide our community." Shameful Trump at it again, stoking terrorism and adding to Trump's blaming England for wiretapping Trump Tower on behalf of US national security agencies. The only countries Trump supports are Russia and Saudi Arabia, both hotbeds for nurturing terrorists.

June 5: Again, today, Trump affirmed his Muslim ban, attacking the Department of Justice for not sticking with Trump's original Muslim ban but sending a watered-down, politically correct version to the US Supreme Court for its review, thus making nonsense of what the Supreme Court is reviewing and revealing as lies DOJ's and White House arguments attempting to overturn the federal court rulings against Trump's Muslim ban.

Overwhelmed with lies, Trump cannot be trusted. We've known this for decades.

"Trump tweets stain our national honor and the Presidency. Profound embarrassment to the American people and USA." (Steve Schmidt)

Trump has become the world's biggest motivator for terrorism by following Osama bin Laden's plan for the US to target Muslims for oppression. Previously, the major oppressor of Muslims was Saudi Arabia, a new partner with Trump. Notably, Trump's Muslim ban exempted Saudi Arabia. Over and over, Trump provokes ISIS and other terrorists.

June 4: Trump attacked London's mayor, a Muslim, for last night's terrorist attack in London. Then, he left White House to play golf. The mayor's response, "I have more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet." Again and again, Trump shows that he is the world's biggest buffoon.

Trump also blamed political correctness, a favorite target for bigots. What is wrong with political correctness? Definition: conforming to a belief that language and practices which could offend political sensibilities (as in matters of sex or race) should be eliminated. It is used to describe the avoidance of language or actions that are seen as excluding, marginalizing, or insulting groups of people who are seen as disadvantaged or discriminated against, especially groups defined by sex or race. Incredibly, Trump prefers insulting people.

June 3: Trump again claimed we need a Muslim ban, including to keep Muslims out of US that are born in the US, ie US citizens.

June 3: Trump held an anti-Paris rally in Lafayette Square across the street from the White House. The park is dedicated to French General Lafayette, who fought with the US in the American Revolution. Trump prefers to see France as the enemy.

June 3: Trump's Muslim ban was supposed to last 90 days for him to figure out "what the hell is going on." That was 120 days ago. That he still wants his Muslim ban shows that it is a Muslim ban. Trump does nothing but tweet hate.

Trump is quick to blame Muslims for terrorism. The latest example, the casino murders in Manila. It turns out the perpetrator was a disgruntled gambler, who stole $2.2 million in chips while killing 35.

June 3: Regarding Trump separating from nearly 200 countries to join Syria and Nicaragua against the Paris Accord. "I think the real problem today and the real sadness is the absolute death blow to the international credibly of the current U.S. leadership. The blow to the international political credibility of the United States really cannot be underestimated." (Christiana Figueres, the former head of the United Nation's climate change mission) Trump and Putin are determined to ruin America.

Trump is the the most protested for the most reasons in history.

Rather than collaborate with the world (eg, Paris Accord), Trump collaborates with Russia (eg, damaged elections).

It is amazing that anyone can fall for a bigot, liar, racist, sexual assaulter, traitor, cheater, ego maniac and someone who has caused the loss of so many billions of dollars in his businesses and is determined to ruin the lives of billions of people, obstruct justice and the US Constitution, and mislead our children for greed and retribution. "You can fool some of the people all of the time; you can fool all of the people some of the time, but you can never fool all of the people all of the time (Abraham Lincoln)."

June 2: The discredited House committee chair and Trump collaborator against the US is ranting about legal 'unmasking' of names by intelligence agencies, insisting these were crimes. It turns out, Rep. Devin Nunes did so himself many times.

June 2: Now that Trump has joined Putin to weaken NATO, Putin threatened NATO if Sweden joins NATO. "We will interpret that as an additional threat for Russia and we will think about how to eliminate this threat." (Putin)

June 2: Putin agreed with Trump today that he did not computer hack the election. Both despise US national intelligence agencies, NATO, the free press and the US Constitution. With Trump, Putin is saving billions of dollars in military spending to win against America.

June 2: More Trump inspirations. Nooses have appeared recently around the nation's capital — including the Smithsonian's new African-American history museum — in a rash of incidents that experts say shows the growing use of hate symbols in the U.S. to try to intimidate minorities.

On odd number days, Steve Bannon is president. On even number days, Jared Kushner is president.

June 2: More Trump obstruction of justice. Trump ordering federal agencies to ignore congressional oversight requests in order to keep Congress and the American people from gaining information that could be used against Trump.

June 2: Trump enjoys this kind of Republican representative. "God is much bigger than us. if there's a real problem, He can take care of it" (Tim Walberg)

Why should we ever do anything, like curing cancer, reducing racism and bigotry, preventing murder and rape, anything? If there's a real problem, God can take care of it.

A better approach from Pope Francis. "The book of Genesis tells us that God created man and woman entrusting them with the task of filling the earth and subuing it, which does not mean exploiting it, but nurturing and protecting it, caring for it through their work." Care for each other through our work. Then we are ready to meet God.

June 1: Trump's receding the US from international leadership is proceeding. In a big White House celebration, Trump removed the US from the international Paris agreement of 195 countries. Now, 194 because Trump changed the US status to that of Syria and Nicaragua, non-supporters. US national secruty and economy attacked again by Trump. And, planet Earth loses too.

June 1: Putin claims that Russia did not hack US computers, contradicting 17 US intelligence agencies (eg, CIA, NSA), the US House, the US Senate and FBI. Putin is trying to rescue Trump. (Trump agrees with Putin that US national intelligence agencies and the press are enemies.)

Update: Putin admitted today that patriotic Russian hackers hacked US computers to get Trump elected.

June 1: Trump exempted his entire senior staff from ethics rules so that they can work in the White House as well as function as lobbyists to get paid from taxpayers and businesses seeking Trump favor. Kellyanne Conway is transforming a $7.8 million DC mansion into a club house to take money in and dole White House favors out. "I intend to dive into social hosting," she said. This is the most corrupt 'administration' in US history. Under Trump, the White House and presidency is for sale.

June 1: Trump is planning to re-open 2 Russian spy locations closed last fall after revelations of Russian interference with the US election for Trump, rewarding Putin for tilting the election to Trump. Jared Kushner will have 2 more locations to conduct covert contacts between Trump and Putin.

Trump intended to do this in February, but the unraveling of Michael Flynn as a Russian foreign agent caused delay.

June 1: Approaching 4 months in office, Trump has yet to disagree with with Putin and continues his defense of Putin. Everything Trump has done supports Putin's mission against the US. No one else in the world is so revered by Trump, who even fired the FBI Director to take the pressure off of FBI's investigation of Trump-Putin collaboration.

June 1: Jared Kushner met Sergei Gorkov, Russia's state bank VEB's CEO and graduate of Russian spy school, in December 2016 at the suggestion of Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak soon after Kushner met with Kislyak. VEB has been used as a front for espionage activities in the recent past. VEB is currently under US and international sanctions for its collaboration with Putin against Ukraine.

1-2 days after this meeting, December 14, Gorkov flew to Japan to brief Putin directly about his meeting with Kushner and Russian progress with stoking treason by Trump and his close associates.

Trump is an agent for Russia, more useful to Putin that any spy Russia ever had.

May 31: Now that investigations are issuing subpoenas for Trump staff to testify under oath and produce documents, causing Trump to hire Putin's lawyer, Trump announced that the White House will no longer answer questions about his treasonous collaboration with Putin to degrade America.

May 31: Trump's kind of guy. The killer in Portland, Oregon that killed 2 trying to protect a Muslim said, "I stabbed the two (expletives) in the neck and I'm happy now. Think I stab (expletives) in the neck for fun? Oh yeah, you're right I do. I'm a patriot. That's what liberalism gets you. I hope they all die. I'm gonna say that on the stand. I'm a patriot, and I hope everyone I stabbed died." In the court room, the killer called his murders free speech. Trump endorses anti-Muslim bigotry and praises Saudi Arabia, the country that created the perpetrators of the horrors of 9/11/01, Osama bin Laden, Al Qaeda and ISIS/ISIL.

May 31: More Trump insanity. 195 nations support it. 300 top US businesses support it. Not Trump. Joining Nicaragua and Syria as non supporters, Trump is cancelling US participation with the 'Paris agreement'. This will separate Europe, international order and the US even more. Trump keeps making the US the most shameful country in the world and degrading US leadership.

Daily, paid by taxpayers, Trump and his surrogates unleash lies, obstructions and temper tantrums.

May 30: Jared Kushner, bypassing the State Dept. and US national security agencies, sought to set up a covert conduit unmonitorable by US national secuity agencies between Putin and himself using facilities in the Russian emabassy in Washington, DC using the CEO of a bank controlled by Putin while it is under sanction by the US to facilitate the covert 'backchannel'. The Russian banker said that Kushner wanted a covert 'backchannel' for real estate ventures with Russia. The White House claims that Kushner was negotiating solutions with Russia to the Syria conflict. What a rotten mess.

May 30: Trump investigation has expanded to yet another Trump surrogate, Boris Epshteyn (born in Russia).

May 30: Trump lawyer Michael Cohen will not cooperate with Congressional investigation. If tapes existed of his discussions, it would be jail time.

May 30: Part of Trump's love affair with Vladimir Putin against the US revealed: Russia has derogatory financial information against Trump to be used for blackmail against Trump.

May 30: Trump announced that the US relationship with Germany is BAD for the US. Preposterous.

May 29: Ivo H. Daalder, former US NATO envoy noted about Trump's weakening of NATO in favor of Russia, "This seems to be the end of an era, one in which the United States led and Europe followed. Today, the United States is heading into a direction on key issues that seems diametrically opposite of where Europe is heading. The president's failure to endorse Article 5 in a speech at NATO headquarters, his continued lambasting of Germany and other allies on trade, his apparent decision to walk away from the Paris climate agreement - all suggest that the United States is less interested in leading globally than has been the case for the lat 70 years." Sigmar Gabriel, German Foreign Minister noted, "Anyone who accelerates climate change by weakening environmental protection, who sells more weapons in conflict zones and who does not want to politically resolve religious conflicts is putting peace in Europe at risk. The short-sighted policies of the American government stand against the interests of the European Union. The West has become smaller, at least it has become weaker."Trump is determined to create a mafia-like protection racket wherein countries must pay for Trump's protection.

From Article I, Section 3 of the US Constitution: “Judgment in cases of impeachment shall not extend further than to removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any office of honor, trust or profit under the United States: but the party convicted shall nevertheless be liable and subject to indictment, trial, judgment and punishment, according to law." Nothing says that Trump cannot be indicted now.

"Reading the Constitution to insulate an incumbent President from criminal liability would not only feed the imperial delusions to which too many high officials in this century have succumbed, but would undermine the fundamental concept of the President as an ordinary citizen temporarily exercising power delegated by We the People." (Eric M. Freedman, Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, 1999)

May 29: According to Senator Charles Grassley, "Qiaowai Group, a Chinese company, and a second private company that calls itself the “U.S. Immigration Fund.” Both are involved in the development of One Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey, promoting the project to potential investors who seek to immigrate to the U.S. through the EB-5 investor visa program. The companies’ exact roles in the development are not entirely clear from public records, but both appear to be acting as a broker-dealer or agent for developers. Recent press reports indicate that Qiaowai has touted its relationship with the current administration as a guarantee that potential EB-5 investors will receive lawful permanent residence in return for a no-risk investment in One Journal Square. They said the president would make sure it came through." Trump insists he can run any business he wants, the US Constitution does not apply to him.

Slavery was America's first sin. Trump is America's second.

May 29: Senator John McCain noted, "Putin is a greater threat to the world than ISIS. I think ISIS can do terrible things. But it's the Russians who tried to destroy the fundamental of democracy and that is to change the outcome of an American election. We have done nothing since the election last November to respond to Vladimir Putin's attempt to change the outcome of our elections. So, way to go Vladimir. We haven't responded at all." Putin has been well rewarded. NATO is weakened, America is receding and Trump is in charge.

It's notable that Trump denies all Russian contacts, but applauds them when they are exposed. This is modus operandi for white collar criminals: deny, then embrace with guilt diversions. The diversions usually work because of incompetent investigators, confused courts and gullible media. Trump's incredible success is bolstered by Russia, scared politicians and voters who see ignorance as a virtue, are easily swayed by trashy celebrity and ego lifted by bigotry.

In Trump World, there is no need to go to college or even graduate from high school. Facts, knowledge, training and evidence are all fake news. All you need to know will come from Trump. Your health, your family and your future are meaningless.

Truth makes America great. Not lies.

May 28: Trump lies and greed continue. His sons, who were supposed to stay away from government, met with Republican leaders to plan strategy against the US.

May 28: Trump's lack of support for NATO in support of Russia is pitiful. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, rapidly becoming the leader of the free world, noted, "that her country could no longer "completely depend" on the U.S. as a reliable partner. She said that Europeans "must really take our destiny into our own hands."Illegally and Constitution violation, to twist arms of NATO members for Trump's profit, Trump complained to world leaders about roadblocks he has faced setting up golf courses in the European Union, indicating that if they want his NATO support then approve his busineses. Trump is damaging and reducing America for Russia and his wealth.

May 28: Illegally, Trump campaign did not preserve documents and communications key to the law enforcement investigation into possible collusion between President Trump's associates and the Kremlin. Cover-up, obstruction of justice and lies flourish.

May 27: Trump, Bannon and Kushner setting up a 'war room' in White House to focus on Trump-Russia collusion.

Russia has been at war with the US for 50+ years. During the Cold War, Russia focused on military pursuits, which fell short. Putin then created his winning weapons, computer warfare and turning US citizens toward Russia. With relatively small financial costs, stealing US national security, political and business records, distributing 'fake news'/false stories about the US and its leaders and cultivating US citizens to serve as Russian spies have succeeded to degrade, confuse and derail the US as well as shake US allies, most notably NATO countries. Astoundingly, roughly a third of US voters and most elected Republicans endorse Putin's success.

May 26: Evidence of Trump's collusion and treason keeps expanding, now including FBI investigation of Jared Kushner. Initially, Kushner like all the other in Trump's top team, claimed to NEVER have had contacts with Russian spies during the election campaign. All lies. Particularly dramatic, Trump had Kushner meeting with Russian spies, recommending to them early December 2016 in Trump Tower with Michael Flynn to have a back-channel created in the Kremlin for secret treasonous contacts between Trump and his team with Russian spies and Vladimir Putin to further weaken and degrade the United States with handsome profits going to Trump. Kushner also met in December with the CEO/Russian spy of Putin money laundering bank (being defended by Trump's new lawyer!); this meeting was also first denied by Kushner just like all meetings with Russian spies and the Trump campaign were denied...until they were reported in the press, then the Trump team admitted the secret meetings. No wonder Trump tried to derail Congressional and FBI investigations, including firing the FBI Director. Shame on politicians too afraid to stand up for the United States, instead to further enable Trump's assault.

The Washington Post was first alerted in mid-December to the meeting by an anonymous letter, which said that Kushner talked to Kislyak, a Russian spy, about setting up a communications back channel to be accessed in the Russian embassy in DC to avoid access by US intelligence agencies. This week, intelligence officials who reviewed the letter said the portion about the secret channel was consistent with their understanding of events. In addition to their (Kushner, Flynn and Kislyak) discussion about setting up the communications channel, they also talked about arranging a meeting between a representative of Trump and a “Russian contact” in a third country whose name was not identified, according to the anonymous letter. The Post reported in April that Erik Prince, the former founder of the private security firm Blackwater and an adviser to the Trump transition team, met on Jan. 11 — nine days before Trump’s inauguration — in the Seychelles islands in the Indian Ocean with a representative of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The meeting was arranged by the crown prince of the United Arab Emerites, who often visits Putin in Russia.

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that he and the intelligence community were “very concerned” about reports that White House adviser Jared Kushner discussed establishing secretive back channels with the Kremlin. "I will tell you that my dashboard warning light was clearly on, and I think that was the case with all of us in the intelligence community, very concerned about the nature of these approaches to the Russians."

Russia's surrogate and Trump lover, Wikileaks's Julian Assange praised Kushner for setting up secret channels with Russia to bypass US intelligence scrutiny.

May 26: The Senate Intelligence Committee, which is investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race, wants Trump’s political organization to gather and produce all documents, emails and phone records going back to his campaign’s launch in June 2015. (Washington Post)

May 25: Trump finally found a poll he likes. It shows him with a 48% approval, but a 52% disapproval.

May 25: Last summer, Russian spies began to influence Trump through Trump associates Paul Manafort and Michael Flynn. Both men had indirect ties to Russian officials, who appeared confident that each could be used to help shape Mr. Trump’s opinions on Russia. Some Russians boasted about how well they knew Mr. Flynn. Others discussed leveraging their ties to Viktor F. Yanukovych, the deposed president of Ukraine living in exile in Russia, who at one time had worked closely with Mr. Manafort. (New York Times) Trump will become known in history as America's most famous traitor.

May 25: Like his dictator associates around the world, Trump hates the press and often urged attacks against journalists. Last night, a Republican House candidate followed through. According to an eyewitness Fox News team, in response to a journalist question about health care, "Gianforte (the candidate) grabbed Jacobs (the journalists) by the neck with both hands and slammed him into the ground behind him. Faith, Keith and I (the Fox News team) watched in disbelief as Gianforte then began punching the reporter. As Gianforte moved on top of Jacobs, he began yelling something to the effect of, "I'm sick and tired of this! To be clear, at no point did any of us who witnessed this assault see Jacobs show any form of physical aggression toward Gianforte, who left the area after giving statements to local sheriff's deputies." Gianforte was charged with assault, but because the sheriff was a supporter Gianforte was not arrested. Gianforte distributed a false statement, claiming that Jacobs assaulted him.

May 24: Like he did with Russian spies, Trump shared top secret information with Philippines President Duterte but not with Americans...the location of 2 nuclear submarines.

British intelligence is now withholding information from Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May told Trump that secrets shared by England with the US must be kept confidential. Likewise, Israel is also now withholding intelligence information from Trump because of his lead of Israeli information to Russian spies.

May 24: Russia tilted the election to Trump in various ways, eg fake news, social media and computer hacking of Democrat computers and subsequent Wikileaks releases. A singularly damaging piece of fake news appears to have tripped FBI Director Comey to WRONGLY announce July 2016 with a press conference his opinions about Hillary Clinton's emails and re-raising the subject in October about 10 days before the election. Russia's fake news spread the false idea that US Attorney General Loretta Lynch would not pursue Clinton even if crimes were found. Comey, believing this false fake news was true was angered enough to announce his opinions against Clinton in contradiction to long-standing FBI rules and policies. Because of Comey's highly negative announcements, voting polls swung away from Clinton and toward Trump. Putin won. America lost. A fake document from Russia changed history and elected a bigoted clown intimately connected with Putin and Russian spies.

May 24: Trump leaks secret information again (last week, from Israel). This week, England is dissatisfied that Trump leaked the name of the suspect in the UK bombing 2 days ago.

May 24: More obstruction of justice. Trump instructed federal agencies to not cooperate with their inquiries on issues ranging from the Russia probe to ethics waivers for senior administration officials.

May 24: Trump applauded Philippines President Duterte for murdering 6,000 suspected drug dealers since July 2016, disregarding human rights and due process, enemies of Trump as well.

May 24: Trump hired the perfect white collar crime defense lawyer to cover up his illicit connections with Russia for business and to win the election. Marc Kasowitz, who is also the lawyer defending Russia's state-run bank, VEB, deeply involved with money laundering for Russia (Jared Kushner met with the bank's CEO December 2016). Kasowitz is also defending Russia's largest bank against US criminal prosecution for corporate raiding (Sherbank, which is majority owned by the Russian government). In December, Trump named another partner at Kasowitz’s firm, David Friedman, to serve as the ambassador to Israel. Kasowitz's web site says he is, "one of the most prominent and feared lawyers in the United States." Trump used him previously to threaten lawsuits against those reporting that Trump sexually assaulted them, though no lawsuits were ever filed. Notably, Trump's top choice for his new FBI Director, Joseph Lieberman, works in Kasowitz's law firm (Trump fired the former FBI Director, James Comey, to derail FBI's Trump-Russia investigation).

Kasowitz bills at $1,500/hour. Perhaps Putin will pay some of Trump's legal bills.

If Mr. Trump is truly unfit—if he has demonstrated already, so quickly, that he cannot competently perform the role, and that his drama will only get more dangerous and chaotic, how much time should pass to let him prove it? And how dangerous will the proving get? History is going to judge us by how we comported ourselves in this murky time. It will see who cared first for the country and who didn’t, who kept his head and did not, who remained true and calm and played it straight. (Peggy Noonan)

May 23: President Con Artist. Trump’s budget is his biggest fraud since Trump University. If you followed Trump’s presidential campaign, you might assume that his budget would reflect his promise to put “America first,” with a focus on ordinary people and their needs. Trump didn’t just fail to deliver; the entire thing was a scam. Indeed, along with attacks on Muslims and immigrants, Trump made specific promises: That he would provide cheaper, more comprehensive health care; that he would protect Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid; that he would raise wages and provide new jobs. People believed him, and millions backed his campaign, confident that he would steer government for their benefit. This was a scam too. There is no relief coming. No help with health care or jobs. Instead, if Trump and his team could govern by fiat, they would siphon trillions of dollars from the federal government to fill the coffers of the wealthiest people in the country, breaking his promises and immiserating millions of low-income and working Americans of all political stripes. Trump’s budget includes roughly $2.5 trillion in cuts to anti-poverty programs, spaced out over a 10-year period. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program—otherwise known as “food stamps”—loses $191 billion. Between the Republican health plan—included in the proposal—and a set of additional cuts that reduce eligibility and shrink year-over-year funding, Medicaid loses nearly $1.5 trillion, or just more than 47 percent of its budget over the next decade, an unfathomable blow to low-income families, children, and the elderly. Trump's assault, ie scam, goes much further. (Slate)

May 23: About Trump's treasonous path Former CIA Director John Brennan testified before Congress that:
– Putin is determined to undermine the US with cyber warfare, computer hacking and records theft, disinformation (fake news), social media and propaganda (eg, through RT state television controlled by Putin), stoking political divide, and engaging with business and political leaders.
– Putin was specifically determined to get Trump elected using these tools as a means to undermine the US. Putin clearly wanted to increase Trump's chance of winning the election.
– He saw sufficiently questionable contact between Russian spies and the Trump campaign to inform the FBI with intelligence gathered by CIA and NSA for further investigation (US citizens are not the purview of the CIA). the FBI probe into whether Russia meddled in the election is well founded.
– Russia may have successfully recruited Trump campaign aides. "I saw interaction that in my mind raised questions of whether it was collusion. I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals." He was worried that "persons" in the Trump campaign were on a treasonous path, and were knowingly or unknowingly becoming Russian spies.
– Unquestionably, Putin/Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election.
– Trump's sharing of classified intelligence with Russian spies violated critical and long-standing protocols of the US intelligence community to protect classified intelligence and not undermine US intelligence capabilities and not put lives at risk.
– Wikileaks and Russia are working with each other (during the campaign, Trump often said he loved Wikileaks).

To watch Trump operate is to watch a master white collar criminal's tools and defenses. Lies, shift blame, manipulate and blackmail business partners, create false scapegoats, fire innocent employees, delay, manufacture evidence, destroy evidence, change the subject, bluff, fake ignorance, pretend confusion, mislead hired lawyers, plead ignorance, attack. Typically, government investigators and prosecutors are little match against successful white collar criminals. And, the media today are succombing to Trump's diversions and lies, thinking, as Trump has so engineered, that maybe Trump is only naive and confused. The self-proclaimed world's smartest man is now trying to convince us that he didn't know that treasonous acts were treason. Clearly, this is not the case...Trump has perfected his act with 50 years of scams, manipulations and cover-ups.

May 22: Trump confirmed in Jerusalem that he gave top secret information to 2 Russian spies. The information concerned Israeli intelligence report of ISIS plan to use computer laptops to house bombs and Trump concluding that pressure is off investigation of Trump-Russia collusion to gain the presidency. Many lives are at risk from Trump's chumminess with Russia.

May 22: More Trump obstruction of justice and treason. Trump ordered the Director of National Intelligence and the Director of National Security to lie by claiming, falsely, that there was no collusion between Trump and Russia for Trump's election. These officers refused to comply because it was inappropriate for Trump to shut down an active investigation with false information. Trump reached into the ranks of a senior military officer, NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers, to lie in order to shut down an active FBI investigation that FBI Director James Comey announce publicly March 20! Rogers documented Trump's demand contemporaneously (in March). Senior intelligence officials also saw Trump's March orders as threats to the independence of U.S. spy agencies. Thus, we know that Trump attempted to shut down FBI's investigation by firing Comey and Attorney General Sally Yates and by directing Comey, Rogers, DNI Director Dan Coates, Devin Nunes in the House and several members of his White House staff to derail the FBI investigation with false statements.

May 22: One of Trump's Russian agents, Michael Flynn, refused to comply with subpoena to testify before and supply documents for congressional hearing. Available documents show, however, that - in violation of law and military rule - Flynn lied in his application for security clearance, claiming that he was not paid by Russia when in fact he had. Trump also has refused to turn over any documents requested by House and Senate. Last year, Trump said several times that using the Fifth Amendment to refuse to testify or produce documents proves that you are a criminal. Trump's cover-up deepening.

May 22: Trump’s trip to Saudi Arabia was bizarre, unseemly, unethical and un-American. It was a very strange place to speak out against Islamist extremism. Although Saudi Arabia is afraid of some forms of Islamist extremism, it supports others. Saudi Arabia sponsors extremist Wahabi mosques and imams all over the world; Osama bin Laden was a Saudi citizen, as were 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers. To denounce human rights in Iran while standing in Saudi Arabia, a place where there is no political freedom and no religious freedom, brought hypocrisy to a whole new level.  Saudi women must cover their heads and often their faces. They cannot drive cars, cannot travel without the permission of male guardians and are deprived of legal rights and education. Tillerson holding a news conference for foreign press only. The U.S. press corps was not invited. Presumably this was because the White House doesn’t want Americans to find out what the president was doing in Saudi Arabia. (Washington Post)

Trump is bragging that there were no protesters in Saudi Arabia. They would have been beheaded.

May 21: It’s time for America to get up. It’s time to regain our sense of unity and purpose. It’s time for us to start realizing who in God’s name we are. (Joe Biden, commencement speech to Colby College in Maine)

May 21: The media is taking its stupid pills today, reporting that Trump softened his tone against Muslims by shortening his attack from radical Islamic terrorism to Islamic terrorism. Nevertheless, Trump still castigates Islam as terrorism.

Update: The White House clarified why Trump left out the word 'radical' from 'radical Islamic terrorism', his signature phrase. He was "exhausted."

May 21: In the country that produced the 9/11 terrorists, Trump made a lot of deals for taxpayers to enrich Trump's business partners. He also identified the "crisis of Islamic extremism and the Islamists and Islamic terror of all kinds." Trump remains at war with Islam. (Far more Americans have been killed by what could be called 'Christian terrorism', as have millions of Muslims. However, Christians and Muslims should not be called terrorists.)

Trump made clear, however, that he will not hold Saudi Arabia and any other Arab dictatorship liable for human rights, their shortage of which produced ISIS/ISIL, Al-Qaeda, Osama bin Laden  and other terrorist groups. Trump is greenlighting the oppression that creates terrorists.

May 21: "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. Islam hates us." Trump is Islam's biggest hater and has inspired attacks against Muslims across the US. About Trump's new-but-false words in Saudi Arabia saying the opposite, Roger Stone says, "Candidly this makes me want to puke."

Trump also has inspired attacks against African Americans. Yesterday, attacking a US Representative in Congress, Trump supporters said, "You'll be hanging from a tree. You ain't going to impeach nobody. Try it and we will lynch all of you." Of course, there were a lot of N-words too.

May 20: "It’s a very bad thing, Twitter’s role in that. If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry." (Twitter co-founder, Evan Williams)

May 20: A former Trump campaign aide is requesting that President Donald Trump set up a legal fund to help associates ensnared in the federal probe into Trump campaign contacts with Russia. The ex-staff member is racking up legal fees after hiring an attorney in order to respond to questions from federal investigators, also said he was never paid for his work for the campaign. (CNN)

May 20: Trump has a new business in China, selling visas and paths to citizenship in the US to Chinese investors for $500,000, laundering the money through Jared Kushner.

May 20: The 86 year old father of former FBI Director James Comey, fired by Trump to end the Trump-Russia investigation, expressed his views. "I never was crazy about Trump. I'm convinced that he's nuts. I thought he belonged in an institution. He was crazy before he became president. Now he's really crazy. Oh my God, I think he should be impeached immediately -- yesterday. He's a very incompetent guy. He's out of his league." His son was fired "because Jim tells the truth, (while) Trump runs around lying most of the day." He his son was fired because Trump was "scared to death of him."

May 20: Trump again in contempt of court, this time for violating a court order to produce Rudy Giullani's memo rationalizing Trump's Muslim ban.

May 19: President Donald Trump told advisers in an Oval Office meeting Tuesday that he favored ending crucial Affordable Care Act payments to insurers, a move that would almost guarantee chaos in the individual health insurance market. Illegal sabotage.

May 19: Trump is desperately seeking ways to fire Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller, reduce his duties or derail his investigation.

May 19: Deputy Attorney General made clear that he did not recommend firing of FBI Director James Comey. In his May 9 memo to Trump, Rosenstein criticized Comey for public comments he made about the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. But Rosenstein also pointed out that his memo didn’t call for Comey to be fired. “My memorandum is not a statement of reasons to justify a for-cause termination,” he said. As to be expected, Trump lied again.

May 17 and 19, two incredible days regarding Trump.

********************************************************************
May 19: Trump fired FBI Director James Comey to derail the Trump-Russia investigation. Confirmed by the White House today AND contained in the official White House report of the meeting, Trump comforted his comrades, 2 Russian spies, in the Oval Office May 10 by telling them that firing Comey had relieved “great pressure” on him (and my extension to them), according to a White House document summarizing the meeting. "I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job. I faced great pressure because of Russia. That’s taken off." Trump said. (New York Times) No wonder Trump and Russia's top 2 spies in the US were laughing in pictures released by Russia (US media were censored from the meeting). Blatant obstruction of justice and more collusion with Russia.

May 19: Russian officials bragged they could use Flynn to influence Trump. The conversations deeply concerned US intelligence officials, some of whom acted on their own to limit how much sensitive information they shared with Flynn. Conversations picked up by US intelligence officials indicated the Russians regarded Flynn as an ally and believed that they could usse Flynn to influence Trump and his advisors. (CNN)

May 19: Close Putin ally, Victor Medvedchuck, running Putin's state bank, VEB, was one of the Russian contacts with the Trump campaign. A known associate of VEB is Carter Page. VEB financed Trump's Toronto Hotel.

May 19: Israeli intelligence officials are furious that Trump gave top secret information to Russia. (notably, Trump says this information is too secret to give to Americans)

May 19: Russia probe reaches current White House official. The senior White House adviser under scrutiny by investigators is someone close to Trump. Jared Kushner? (Washington Post)

May 19: Former FBI Director James Comey will testify publicly to the Senate Intelligence Committee in June. Wow. More facts on the way.

May 19: Investigators into Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential elections are now authorized to probe whether White House officials have engaged in a cover-up, according to members of Congress who were briefed Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

May 19: Trump has begun searching for impeachment attorneys.

See May 17 section below.

History is documenting the stretchy defenses Republican legislators are using to keep Trump in the White House. They may want to read 'All the President's Men', an investigative report into Watergate by 2 Washington Post reporters.
*********************************************************************

May 19: Foreign officials meeting Trump during his first overseas trip are being told to praise him. Don't expect him to know your country's history or hot-button issues. Make a short presentation tailored to his attention span, and don't try to bring up a long list of issues. "If you were prepping people for Donald Trump, the two or three points would be: one, bear in mind this is still a guy who focuses on wins," Peter Westmacott, a former British ambassador to the U.S. warned. "This is a guy with a limited attention span."

We must reject politicians fleecing us with false promises, lies and political tribalism.

Why does Trump NOT want to get to bottom of the investigation into Russian interference in the election? Why is he derailing it? If Trump was innocent, he would help, support investigators and tell the truth.

May 18: Taxpayers are increasingly paying Trump's bills and profits. Now, add a new one. Trump is hiring a team of lawyers to defend against the DOJ criminal investigations of Trump.

May 18: Over and over, Trump proves his guilt. Denials that change in the next tweet. Today, contrary to fact, Trump claimed that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein recommended firing FBI Director James Comey. The fact: Rosenstein was informed Monday May 8 that Trump had decided to fire Comey based on Comey's congressional testimony a week earlier and his March 2016 press conference regarding HIllary Clinton. Trump said in an interview last week that his decision predated his meeting with Rosenstein. Trump said that everyone, including his enemies, says there was/is no collusions with Russia. False. A majority of Americans believe that Trump fired Comey in order to hinder the investigation into Trump collusion with Russia. Trump added that he did not collude with the Russians but could not talk about collusions his campaign had with the Russians. Today, Trump insulted Robert Mueller, appointed yesterday as Special Prosecutor by Rosenstein. Numerous Republican legislators disagree with Trump's characterization of an array of Republcan and criminal investigations as a witch hunt. Still, Trump admires Putin and Flynn, a Russian agent. In fact, Trump remains in contact with Flynn, their last contact we know about was April 25. Flynn says that Trump told him to "stay strong." Obstruction of justice from one to another.

May 18: After Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein met with Senators, Senators affirmed that Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is conducting a criminal investigation, meaning that there is probably cause for Trump collusion with Russia to win the election and obstruction of justice.

May 18: Proving that everything Trump said about the firing of FBI Director James Comey occuring in response to Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein May 9 memo, today Rosenstein told 100 Senators that he knew Comey would be fired by Trump (not Rosenstein, Comey's boss) BEFORE Rosenstein wrote his memo. Rosenstein NEVER recommended Comey be fired.

May 18: Still, Trump is obstructing justice. Trump now on war path against Dept. of Justice for naming a Special Prosecutor to examine the most serious attack against the US in history. "I believe it hurts our country terribly, because it shows we're a divided, mixed-up, not-unified country." Trump also keeps blaming the Democrats for the DOJ, FBI, Senate and House investigations even though they are all led by Republicans. The Special Prosecutor, Robert Mueller (a registered Republican and chosen for FBI Director by President George Bush August 2001), was chosen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who Trump chose for the position 3 weeks ago. A legitimate investigation is NOT evidence of a divided, mixed-up country. It is a duty of the rule of law.

May 18: Advisers to President Trump's campaign had at least 18 undisclosed contacts with Russian officials and those with ties to Moscow during the last seven months of Trump's 2016 presidential campaign.

May 18: Responding to substantial investigations into him from the Dept. of Justice, FBI, US Senate, US House and, fortunately, journalists, Trump tweeted today that is is all a big witch hunt. This is how Trump sees the rule of law. Trump still is attempting to cover up his treason and crimes, and is insulting the newly-appointed Special Prosecutor Robert Meuller.

******************************************************************
Trump is in big trouble. Talk from Republicans of a President Mike Pence is expanding.

May 17: 6:00 PM announcement (Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, in the White House, were informed about 5:30 PM). Trump so sufficiently corrupted Congressional and FBI investigations that the Dept. of Justice named a Special Counsel/Prosecutor for the Trump-Russia investigation, Former FBI Director Robert Meuller for 12 years under Presidents Bush and Obama. Mueller will take over the FBI investigation. Likely, a US Grand Jury will be empaneled, search warrants will be issued and Trump will be interviewed under oath under penalty of perjury. Trump BS and obstruction of justice to be reigned in. From the DOJ order: "If the Special Counsel believes it is necessary and appropriate, the Special Counsel is authorized to prosecute federal crimes arising from the investigation of these matters." Trump's threats against and firing of FBI Director James Comey backfired.

Nixon got a special prosecutor after 4 years as president. Trump got his after 4 months (investigating Russia's tilting the election to Trump and his collusion with Putin to do so).

May 17: House majority leader to colleagues in June 2016 (a month before Trump secured the nomination): ‘I think Putin pays’ Trump. A month before Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, one of his closest allies in Congress — House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy — made a politically explosive assertion in a private conversation on Capitol Hill with his fellow GOP leaders: that Trump could be the beneficiary of payments from Russian President Vladimir Putin. “There’s two people I think Putin pays: [California Republican Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy (R-Calif.) said, according to a recording of the June 15, 2016 exchange, which was listened to and verified by The Washington Post. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is a Californian Republican known in Congress as a fervent defender of Putin and Russia. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) immediately interjected, stopping the conversation from further exploring McCarthy’s assertion, and swore the Republicans present to secrecy. (Washington Post) Paul Ryan's response to this story as it was being written effectively proves the story is true. First, Ryan said it did not happen. Then, he said a transcript was falsified, the discussion never happened. Then, faced with the audio tape, Ryan said it was a joke. So, why make all those present swear to secrecy? If it was a joke, the last excuse of Ryan, why are you joking about Putin buying Trump? Plausible, if not true, isn't it?

May 17: Michael Flynn told Trump and Pence Jan 4 that he was under criminal investigation, but Trump hired him as National Security Advisor anyway. The job gave Mr. Flynn access to the every secret held by American intelligence agencies for distribution back to his clients in Russia and Trukey. How did Flynn blackmail Trump? What does Flynn know about Trump? (Nov 10, 2016, Obama warned Trump about Flynn, urging Trump not to hire Flynn. Jan 26, Attorney General Sally Yates warned Trump that Flynn was under criminal investigation and a likely subject of Russian blackmail)

Trump named Flynn his national security adviser on Nov. 17, and Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), the ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, wrote a letter to then-Vice President-elect Mike Pence the next day expressing concern that he “was hired by a foreign company to lobby for Turkish interests.”

May 17: Jan 15, Michael Flynn, a highly-paid foreign agent for Turkey (and Russia) stopped a critical operation against ISIS' to retake capitol in Raqqa to please Turkey. The war against ISIS might have ended at that time, but Flynn was paid by Turkey to accomplish otherwise. (Obama’s team informed Trump because while the plan would be approved under Obama, it would likely be executed after Trump took office.) Did Turkey support ISIS during last weeks meeting between Trump and Turkey's dictator president? What will Trump do about the beating of US citizens by Turkey embassy officials in Washington, merely a few blocks from the White House?

May 17: Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, are 'subjects' of multiple grand jury subpoenas and criminal investigations, ie they are officially suspected of having committed crimes.

May 17: Putin's state-run bank plowed money into Trump's Toronto motel in 2010. An example of Trump sons saying that Russian money was flowing into Trump businesses.
******************************************************************

It remains a mystery that Trump administration claims that the information Trump gave to Russian spies in the Oval Office last week is too secret to give to Americans and US allies. And, the White House placed emergency calls to CIA and NSA to remove the top secret information from any documents pertaining to the meeting. Not a secret for a leading adversary but too much a secret for US allies and citizens! Notably, Putin offered to US investigators his transcript of the meeting, meaning that Russian spies brought a secret audio taping recorder into the Oval Office. Trump permitted Russian spies into the Oval Office to spy on Trump!

May 17: Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that he would have "no way to know" if the Russian government had bugged the Oval Office during President Trump's meeting with Russia's foreign minister and ambassador last week.

May 17: Trump's obstruction of justice is expansive. Not only threatening FBI Director James Comey he would be fired for not pledging loyalty or ending the Flynn investigation, Trump has yet to turn over any documents, transcripts or audio tapes to any investigation. Furthermore, Trump continually lies about the investigations and his innocence. And, his White House and Congressional supporters are also in jeopardy as they collude with Trump, at taxpayer expense, to derail Congressional and FBI investigations with lies and threats of their own. Trump is riding the biggest scandals in US history. Trump is the criminal president.

May 17: Trump controversy reaching "Watergate size and scale." (Sen. John McCain) Republican legislators refusing to show up on Fox News. Trump's defense is crumbling.

May 17: Trump's closest partner, Vladimir Putin, to the rescue, offering a Russian transcript of Trump's meeting with Russia's top 2 spies/spy recruiters last week in the Oval Office. Here I come to save the day, and my puppet Trump. It would be interesting to compare Trump and Putin transcripts.

Dear Trump enablers...History is watching. Russia is celebrating. America is losing. Even if Trump left today, his damage to national security, revival of white supremacy and fake news will last years.

May 16: Trump doublespeak. He says he declassified information and gave it to the Russian (and made a stooge of H. R. McMaster to defend it). But, he also says about reports about this 'declassified' information that the information is classified. How can something be classified and not classified at the same time?

May 16: With lives at risk, Trump's aides have no recourse but to leak.

May 16: Trump shows us every day why he lost billions of other people's money and filed bankruptcy so many times.

May 16: After FBI Director James Comey left his command dinner appearance with Trump Jan 27 (the day after the Attorney General informed Trump that Michael Flynn had committed crimes), Comey wrote a memo to the Russia investigation file after a later Trump meeting February 14, the day after Flynn was fired, noting that Trump ordered him to end the investigation of Michael Flynn. After Trump told Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions to leave the room so that Trump was alone with Comey (because Trump knew that the pressure he was about to apply to Comey was illegal), Trump tried to directly influence the Justice Department and F.B.I. investigation into links between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia. This is obstruction of justice, a crime. After writing up the memo that outlined the meeting, Mr. Comey shared it with senior F.B.I. officials. Mr. Comey and his aides perceived Mr. Trump’s comments as an effort to influence the investigation, but they decided that they would try to keep the conversation secret — even from the F.B.I. agents working on the Russia investigation — so the details of the conversation would not affect the investigation. Comey created similar memos as well — including some that are classified — about every phone call and meeting he had with Trump. Trump claims that he secretly tape recorded the Jan 27 meeting. Undoubtedly, it will confirm Comey's memo. Comey's paper trail vs Trump's tapes, Trump's reality tv to be continued. (it would be another Trump crime if he destroys the tapes)

Question: why can Trump tell classified intelligence to Russia but not to America? Trump claimed he instantaneously declassified information for the Russians, but simultaneously says Americans cannot have it.

May 16: Putin teamed up with Trump to tell Americans to stop reading US newspapers.

IMPEACH: In his conduct while president of the United States, Donald J. Trump, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of president of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has engaged in conduct that resulted in misuse and abuse of his high office: Article 1: Compromising the integrity of the presidency through continuing violation of the Constitution’s Emoluments Clause. Article 2: Violation of his constitutional oath to faithfully execute the duties of his office by disregarding U.S. interests and pursuing the interests of a hostile foreign power, to wit, Russia. Article 3: Impairment and obstruction of inquiries by the Justice Department and Congress into the extent of the Trump administration’s conflicts of interests and Russia ties. Article 4: Undermining of the American judicial system through felonious intimidation of potential witnesses. Article 5: Undermining of his office and the Constitution through repeated assaults on the integrity of the federal judiciary and its officers. Article 6: Demeaning the integrity of government and its public servants, particularly the military and intelligence agencies, in contravention of his constitutional duties to serve as chief executive and commander in chief of the armed forces. Article 7: Dereliction of his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the office of president by failing to timely appoint officers of the United States to administer the nation’s federal agencies. (Slate)

May 16: The source of the classified information Trump gave to Russia's top 2 spies/spy recruiters in an Oval Office 'party' was ISRAEL.

May 16: Trump met another dictator business partner in the Oval Office for a secret chat, Turkey President Tayyip Erdogan. What secrets did Trump hand over today?

To illustrate Republican threat to America, simply imagine their screaming at the top of their lungs if Hillary Clinton or Barrack Obama did what Trump did in firing FBI Director James Comey and in distributing classified information to Russia. It's time for Republicans in Congress to read the Constitution and their oath of office. And to recognize that Putin is playing Trump like a fiddle at the expense of Americans, America's allies and America's reputation.

Political chaos in Washington is a dramatic return on investment for Moscow that is reaping far more than what Putin invested. With Trump in White House, Putin will save billions in his military.

May 16: All allies of the US now need to be very cautious about Trump. In doing so, they will reduce terrorist intelligence with the US. Trump has assured that millions of lives are at higher risk. Trump needs to be removed from office, arrested or committed to an asylum if necessary, for our protection. (notably, Trump will not inform Congress with the information he handed over to Russia)

May 16: Last week, Trump made stooges out of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Vice President Mike Pence. Yesterday, it was National Security Director General H. R. McMaster and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who were trotted out to lie for Trump only to be contradicted by Trump today by admitting he did share top secrets with Russia in the Oval Office. For Trump, Putin is a business partner and Russia is not an adversary. For Russia, Trump is a stooge and the US is an adversary. (Update: after sending McMaster, the new Sean Spicer, to spin Americans two days in a row, Trump says that McMaster is a pain and talks too much, Saturday Night Live to the rescue)

May 15: After the Washington Post contacted the White House and received comments from 2 US national intelligence agencies for its blockbuster story, Trump met with the Crown Prince of the United Emerates, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, in the Oval Office. This is the same individual that meets often with Putin at the Kremlin and arranged the meeting between Trump's campaign and Russia in an island off the coast of The United Emerates. Trump called hims "a very special person." Trump is thrilled to assault the US.

May 15: Trump's leaking highly classified information to Russia's top 2 spies is the most serious assault on America and its alliesby a President in history, worsened by the pictures released by Russia of Trump celebrating with the 2 Russian spies in the Oval Office.

No wonder US intelligence agents warned their Israeli counterparts that Russia may have “levers of pressure” over Donald Trump and told them to be careful about sharing intelligence with the White House in case it was passed on to the Kremlin, according to Israeli media reports.

May 15: Trump again proved that he is the leading enemy of the US and is determined to make the US less safe on behalf of Russia. He is an imminent threat to the lives of many. Senator Bob Corker, Republican Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said, "Obviously they're in a downward spiral right now." And, Trump's illicit disclosure is certain to lead to the killing by Syria, Russia and Iran of many US allies. Trump is a clear and present danger.

Last week (May 10, the day after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey for refusing to end FBI's Russia investigation and to divert his sworn loyalty to the US to Trump), with US press barred, Trump shared highly classified information with Russia's top two spies, accompanied with Russian aides, who privately met with Trump in the Oval Office of the White House (Russian media were permitted in the Oval Office with equipment, likely leaving behind spy devices. We know about the clandestine meeting only because Russian media published the only pictures of the event.) Maybe Trump has audio tapes of his treason. Eventually, treason will be charged against Trump as well for his endorsement of and collusion with Russia's interference with the election. Trump is more loyal to Russia than the United States, violating his loyalty pledge to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic and that he will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.

"Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador in a White House meeting last week, according to current and former U.S. officials, who said that Trump’s disclosures jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State. In his meeting with Lavrov, Trump seemed to be boasting about his inside knowledge of the looming threat. “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” Trump said, according to an official with knowledge of the exchange. Trump went on to discuss aspects of the threat that the United States only learned through the espionage capabilities of a key partner. Most alarmingly, officials said, Trump revealed the city in the Islamic State’s territory where the U.S. intelligence partner detected the threat. After Trump’s meeting, senior White House officials took steps to contain the damage, placing calls to the CIA and National Security Agency. Senior White House officials appeared to recognize quickly that Trump had overstepped and moved to contain the potential fallout. Thomas P. Bossert, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, placed calls to the directors of the CIA and the NSA, services most directly involved in the intelligence-sharing arrangement with the partner. One of Bossert’s subordinates also called for the problematic portion of Trump’s discussion to be stricken from internal memos and for the full transcript to be limited to a small circle of recipients, efforts to prevent sensitive details from being disseminated further or leaked." (Washington Post, May 15)

"Trump boasted about highly classified intelligence in a meeting with the Russian foreign minister and ambassador last week, providing details that could expose the source of the information and the manner in which it was collected, a current and a former American government official said Monday. The intelligence disclosed by Mr. Trump in a meeting with Sergey V. Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, and Sergey I. Kislyak, the Russian ambassador to the United States, was about an Islamic State plot, according to the officials. A foreign ally that closely guards its own secrets provided the information, which was considered so sensitive that American officials did not share it widely within the United States government or pass it on to other allies." (New York Times, May 15)

Two US officials who were briefed on Trump’s disclosures last week confirmed to BuzzFeed News the veracity of the Post report, with one official noting that “it’s far worse than what has already been reported.”

Trump revealed more to Russia that he does to US allies. What ally would want to trust the US now?

What other classified information is Trump giving to the Russians? Certainly, Trump is selling far more to Russia. Trump is dismantling the US as a superpower in favor of Russia.

Update: White House response...manufacture details not in Washington Post and New York Times reports, and then claim they are false. Matters addressed in the reports were not addressed.

January 27, 2017, Trump committed a crime, one of his many over the past year. Trump bribed FBI Director James Comey: pledge allegiance to Trump or lose your job. Comey refused. Trump fired him. Trump claims that he secretly tape recorded his bribe. In the hands of the FBI, Trump will be indicted by his tape, and those conspiring with Trump will also be indicted.

May 14: FIRING COMEY WAS A GRAVE ABUSE OF POWER. In 1974, Republicans put country before Party and told Nixon it was time to go. Today’s G.O.P. seems unlikely to live up to its predecessor’s example. Trump all but acknowledged that he had fired Comey because the director had made sure that the Bureau continued to investigate the ties between Trump’s campaign and the efforts by the Russian government and its allies to hand the election to him. This is exactly the kind of investigation that requires the F.B.I. director to have independence; Trump’s short-circuiting of the probe, with Comey’s dismissal, is a grave abuse of Presidential power. Only the voters, in 2018 and beyond, will have a chance to send the kind of message that today’s cynical G.O.P. will understand. In the meantime, the Trump Presidency will stagger from one crisis to the next. Daily, and conspicuously, Trump proves the danger of his continued service. (Jeffrey Toobin)

If Trump was not guilty of treason, crimes and malfeasance, he would not lie so much, would not derail investigation but would cooperate and lead.

May 14: The US is under assault externally from Russia and internally from Trump. Their pattern of cooperation is concerning. (James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence)

You're fired, Trump's way to obstruct justice. January 26, Attorney General Sally Yates told Trump that his closest Russian agent Michael Flynn was under criminal investigation and compromised by Russia. Trump fired her. January 27, Trump summoned FBI Director James Comey to 'the last supper' to obstruct justice by demanding Comey pledge allegiance to Trump and drop the many Trump-Russian investigations (boldly, Trump called upon attendees at his campaign rallies to pledge allegiance to Trump as well). Comey refused. Trump fired him. Although Trump promised US Attorney Preet Brahaha continuation of his job, Trump learned that Brahaha was investigating Russian money laundering through Trump and other Trump matters. Trump fired him. As Sen. John McCain says, there will be more shoes to drop from the Trump centipede. (Trump also fired Michael Flynn, who responded by soliciting immunities from prosecution from Congress and the FBI, asserting that he had a story to tell to offer in exchange for immunity from criminal prosecution.)

Warning: No one should take a private call from Trump without witnesses. And, get a protection vest to deflect Trump stabbing you in the back. And, Trump may be tape recording the call to use against you. You might want a tape recording of your own to protect yourself.

May 12: Yesterday, Trump claimed that the FBI and its 35,500 employees despised fired FBI Director James Comey. Today, Trump canceled his trip to FBI headquarters after being told that its FBI agents and other employees were going to show their firm disagreement with Trump and strong respect for Comey.

Trump is the most sued President in US history. In his first three months in office, Trump has been sued in federal court 134 times – nearly three times more than his three most recent predecessors combined. Trump has also attacked judges the most.

Trump is not in charge. Hours every day, he watches TV and TIVO, and threatens and lies on Twitter. He has delegated his duties to white supremacists and anti-constitutionalists. He is obsessed with insisting that the investigations in the Senate, House, FBI, US intelligence agencies and the media are a hoax. Trump is determined that thousands of professionals are in a grand conspiracy against him. Trump reveals his psychosis every time he speaks. The only winner is Russia.

May 12: Trumponomics won’t make America great again. The impulsiveness and shallowness of America’s president threaten the economy as well as the rule of law. Donald Trump rules over Washington as if he were a king and the White House his court. His displays of dominance, his need to be the center of attention and his impetuousness have a whiff of Henry VIII about them. (The Economist)

May 12: January 27, Trump ordered FBI Director James Comey to the White House for dinner and demand of a pledge of allegience to Trump rather than the US, the Constitution, the rule of law and the American people. Lie for me, stop the Russia investigation, or 'you're fired'. Today in an illegal act of witness intimidation/tampering, Trump threatened ex-FBI Director James Comey, warning him that there better not be any tape recordings of his conversations with Comey. Trump playing Nixon again. Trumps keeps proving that he is guilty of treason and high crimes. Tapes would add proof to his guilt. (in contrast, Trump continues to praise Michael Flynn, a self-admitted paid Russian agent)

Trump is colluding with the largest attack against the US since May 11, 1945, the attack on Pearl Harbor. This time, it's Russia, and it's winning with Trump's endorsement and support. (Trump's engagement with Russia began by 1986. In 1987, he met with several economic and financial advisers in the Politburo. Since then, hundreds of millions of dollars have flowed to Trump from Russia.

May 11: A top cleric of the Russian Orthodox Church (Hilarion Alfeyev) and ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin met privately with Vice President Mike Pence Thursday morning. Hilarion says he expects to meet with Putin when he returns home to discuss his conversation with Pence. (Time)

May 11:Trump bragged about obstructing justice and treason by ending the Russian investigation quickly by firing FBI Director Comey. In January, Trump demanded total loyalty to Trump and to abandon the Constitution and rule of law. Comey refused. He had to be fired. Egregiously, most Republicans in Congress have capitulated to Trump's 21st century fascism.

May 11: Trump cannot stand that he won the election, deciding today to waste millions to search for voter fraud permitted by Republican officers responsible for vote tallies.

May 11: In effect, Trump said he lied yesterday about why he fired FBI Director James Comey. Yesterdays cover story was that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein's May 9 letter about Comey, which was ordered by Trump May 8, was why Trump fired Comey. Today's cover, this letter had nothing to do with the firing. Rosenstein was only a pawn in Trump's determination to terminate the Russia investigation. Trump now says that Comey is a "showboat" and "grandstander." Trump son, Don Jr., today said that Comey was responsible for Vince Foster's 1993 suicide. (Rosenstein demanded yesterday that Trump correct the record, confirming that Comey was not fired because of Rosenstein's letter) All of this series of cover stories contradict Trump's praise of Comey since March 2016. Lies usually unravel toward the truth. In this case, Trump admitted today that he fired Comey to terminate the Trump-Putin investigation.

May 11: Essentially bragging about his ignorance, Trump said that "in a short period of time I understood everything there was to know about health care." Not possible. No wonder TrumpCare is such a disaster and will harm all Americans.

May 11: Trump fake news, aka lies, debunked again. At Senate Intelligence Committee Hearing, all witnesses unanimously testified that Russia interfered with the November 2016 US election on behalf of Trump. The witnesses: NSA Director, National Intelligence Director (on behalf of his 17 national intelligence agencies), CIA Director, FBI Acting Director, Defense Intelligence Agency Director and National Geopspacial Intelligence Agency Director. The witnesses also testified that Russia is continuing its cyber and social media assault against the US.

Nevertheless, Trump had confidential meetings with Russia's top 2 spies yesterday in the Oval Office. One of them was the primary known contact for Trump's campaign to collude with Russia for Trump's election. The only news agency allowed to Russia Lavrov/Trump meeting was a Russian news agency. Americans kept out. The group of Russian spies in the Oval Office likely left behind a listening device.

Notably, leading 'anti-virus' software from the Russian company, Kaspersky Labs, is installed on millions of home users' computers. The witnesses firmly testified that they would not use this software, a likely espionage vehicle for Russia.

History is watching. Republicans exonerating and enabling Trump's abuse of power, obstruction of justice and collusions with Russia against America need to wake up, and realize their assessment in history. Do they really want to be seen as 21st century Benedict Arnolds? (The name "Benedict Arnold" represents treason or betrayal because he betrayed the US by leading the British army in battle against the men whom he once commanded.)

May 11: Putin owns Trump. Putin could blackmail Trump, threatening that if Trump does not submit to Russia on security issues he would leak or disclose information that would be catastrophic for Trump. Or, Putin could initiate aggressive actions against America or another democracy, and if Trump responded he could leak the negative information in the midst of a major crisis that Putin himself created, confident he has this politically lethal infowar weapon in his cyberwar arsenal.

May 11: Although Trump relied on and praised FBI Director Comey for his help to win the election (as well as cooperation with Russia), Trump decided to fire Comey on election day, Nov. 8, 2016. Last week, Comey crossed Trump's red line when he requested more resources for the Trump-Russia investigation, meaning that the substance of the investigation was expanding, particularly evidence of collusion between Trump and Putin to derail the presidential election. And, Comey refused to follow Trump's order to abandon FBI Russia and Trump-Putin investigations. To derail this expansion, as he had already derailed congressional investigations, and to derail the FBI investigation iteself, Trump decided to finally fire Comey to obstuct justice. May 8, Trump summoned Attorney General Jeff Sessions (who recused himself from any campaign, Russia or Russia-Putin investigation) and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein (two weeks on the job), ORDERING them to manufacture excuses to fire Comey to give Trump's obstruction of justice cover. Rosenstein in particular obliged, listing what Trump calls Comey atrocities against Hillary Clinton!

Steve Schmidt, Campaign Manager for McCain presidential campaign. Re Trump's firing Comey, "It's unprecedented, shocking and an enomous abuse of power. Any Republican member of Congress who takes the president's, his spokespeople’s assertions, that this action occurred because Director Comey was unfair to Hillary Clinton is either a fool, or they have so lost sight in this era of tribal politics their responsibilities to the country that they’ve become faithless to their oaths. This is an extraordinary moment in the history of the modern presidency and a very serious one."

Trump wrote in his letter to Comey, "While I greatly appreciate you informing me, on three separate occasions, that I am not under investigation, I nevertheless concur with the judgment of the Department of Justice that you are not able to effectively lead the Bureau." LIE. Comey never told Trump that he is not under investigation.

May 10: Following the firing of the FBI Director and Putin's order to Trump, Trump met with Russia's top 2 spies in the US in the White House, disallowing any US press to record the meetings as they reviewed Trump-Russia business projects, sharing of US intelligence and champagne over the election secured for Trump by Putin.

May 10: Trump called for an investigation into Senator Richard Blumenthal because he criticized Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey.

May 9: US attorney in Virginia issued grand jury subpoenas in FBI's Russia investigation for business records of associates of Michael Flynn.

May 9: BREAKING NEWS, 5:45 PM. To derail the only criminal investigation against Trump's treason and numerous criminal acts, Trump fired FBI Director James Comey (Comey learned about his firing from TV sets in the room as he was addressing FBI agents in Los Angeles). Fired a day after fired Attorney General Sally Yates gave dramatic testimony in Congress, Comey was scheduled to testify on Thursday before Congress about FBI's Trump-Russia criminal investigation. Yet another obstruction of justice, abuse of power and Nixon flash back by Trump. When Comey derailed Clinton's election, Trump praised Comey. April 12, Trump praised Comey. Now, as Comey manages a diversified Trump investigation and nearing recommendations for prosecutions, Trump fired Comey. Trump finally recognizes charges of treason and crimes were on their way. Trump's cover-up expands. Intense history in the making. Trump's 'Tuesday Night Massacre'.

Trump manufactured his case to fire Comey by ordering the Attorney General (who recused himself 2 months ago) and the Assistant Attorney General to specifically attack Comey for the same reasons Trump praised Comey for getting him elected, being mean to Hillary Clinton. Putin supports Trump decision to fire Comey, whose investigation was getting to close to exposing Trump-Putin collusion against America.

From Jeffrey Tubin, "[This is] grotesque abuse of power, by the President of the United States. This is the kind of thing that goes on in nondemocracies. That when there is an investigation that reaches near the president of the United States, or the leader of a nondemocracy, they fire the people who are in charge of the investigation."

This is the third significant firing by Trump. First was his first Attorney General, Sally Yates, for informing Trump that his National Security Advisor was under criminal investigation for being a Russian agent. Then came Preet Brahara, the lead prosecutor against Trump associates in Manhattan's federal district. Today, FBI Director James Comey, who began criminal investigation into Trump associates July 2016 and testified about it twice to Congress. Trump also fired all 46 US Attorneys. Trump also derailed the House Intelligence Committee's investigation by compromising the Committee's Chair, who had to step down. By firing Comey, Trump hopes to derail all Congressional investigations, which were relying heavily on Comey since Trump compelled the House and Senate to poorly staff the investigatory committees.

Vladimir Putin, Trump's best friend and business partner, is very happy today.

Update: Comey requested more funding for FBI's Trump-Russia investigation, indicating to Trump that the investigation was deepening. Trump had to derail Comey, so fired him.

May 9: Sen. Lindsay Graham, Chair of Senate Judiciary Committee, sent IRS request for information of fiancial ties between Russia and Trump.

May 8: Another blockbuster congressional hearing into Trump occurred today. Witnesses included the US Attorney General Sally Yates fired by Trump for concluding that his Muslim ban violated the Constitution (and informing the White House of crimes of Michael Flynn) and ex-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper. It became clearer that Trump did nothing to properly investigate FOREIGN AGENT Michael Flynn for National Security Director but later fired him for lying to the Vice President about his illegal collusions with Russia to get Trump elected (Flynn illegality was covered up by Trump during the 18 days between Yates' White House meeting January 26 and media report about Flynn's lies). Clapper also confirmed that European intel agencies passed along info about contacts between Trump campaign and Russians. Clapper noted that clearance for a White House or political appointee position, particularly for the National Security Director, is significantly more intrusive and thorough than what Flynn experienced, proving false Trump's position that Flynn, while fired by Obama, needed no more security clearance assessment than what Flynn received. Also clarified, Flynn never applied for proper security clearance for National Security Advisor, thus illegally given access to top security information, conversations with Putin (Janury 28, 2 days after Yates' warning) and sources and methods of US national intelligence. Yates firmly told Trump's White House attorney in a top secret room in the White House, confirmed by the White House as well, that Flynn's illegal communications with Russia could be used by Russia as blackmail against Trump. Yates told the White House that Flynn was compromised. Also clarified, Flynn lied to the FBI about his Russia communications, a federal crime. Notably, and confirmed by the White House today, President Obama, who fired Flynn for cause, urged Trump November 10 not to hire Flynn. No wonder Flynn requested immunity from prosecution in March to evade penalties for his litany of illegal acts (while promising that he "had a story to tell" to justify criminal immunity). Without question, Russia interfered with the US presidential election with cyber attacks and fake news to tilt the election to Trump. Trump became an illegitimate President.

The Flynn story today, only a part of the whole story, is remarkable. July 2016, FBI's criminal investigation of Trump and Flynn began. As part of it, FBI agents interviews Flynn in the White House January 2017, noting several irregularities and lies, convincing US Attorney General Sally Yates to call the White House Counsel, Don McGann, January 26 even before the agents' reports were written. Yates met with McGann in a secret room in the White House to review the explosive information about Flynn, including that Flynn was a subject to a FISA warrant and criminal investigation, was compromised by Russia, open to blackmail by Russia and was lying to the Vice President. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed the meetings and that McGann informed Trump immediately. Incredibly, Flynn discussed by phone with Putin for an hour from the Oval Office January 28 and likely sold to Russia top secret information he had illegal access to during his 18 days in office, during which Spicer said that he had too many foreign interactions to catalog them. February 10, Trump lied about knowing this story and kept defending Flynn, now we know a foreign agent for Russia and Turkey UNTILL the Washington Post published this information. Only then did Trump fire Flynn, though still claiming that the Flynn criminal investigation is a witch hunt by Republicans in Congress, Democrats and the media. Without the media, Flynn, a self-admitted foreign agent taking money from Russia and Turkey governments to act against the US, would still be Trump's National Security Advisor sending US intelligence to his and Trump's foreign clients. Compared to all this, which is only a tip of the criminal iceberg, Nixon's misdeeds were kid's stuff.

This morning, before the hearing, Trump illegally threatened Sally Yates from testifying truthfully, claiming that she committed a crime in leaking FBI information. As usual, a Trump lie.

Obvious during the Hearing today is that there is substantially more disturbing information that is classified and could not be discussed today.

Finally, during the hearing, Trump removed his Muslim ban promise from his campaign web site.

May 7: Revealed today that Trump's golf courses are funded by Russia, $100 million according to Eric Trump. Adding criminal support for his election from Russia made Trump happy and is making him rich.

May 7: Illegally, Trump selling Visas and paths to US citizenship to Chinese business men for $500,000 through his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. A little side money to go along with the millions he is charging taxpayers for his businesses for security, rentals and travel. Although the meeting was advertised as public, when Trump's allies learned of media in the room, then were forced out. (the day before this event, Trump extended the program) Trump is determined to make billions from US taxpayers anyway he can, especially if illegal.

May 5: Trump has now spent 14 straight weekends visiting his business properties, ripping off taxpayers for his and his family's travel over $100 million so far, several million sent directly to Trump businesses.

May 5: The Trump/Putin candidate (Marine Le Pen) will lose unless Trump/Russia cyber attacks against front-runner Emmanuel Macron. Macron emails and documents were stolen today by massive coordinated computer attack like that against HIllary Clinton. Also, like those against Clinton, Russia is planting fake emails and documents against Macron. France's election for President is Sunday.

Update. May 7. Trump/Russia candidate lost. Russia invested more effort and fake news for Trump. Contrary to the US, in France, publicity about and publishing the stolen documents was illegal. Thus, Trump/Russia defganged, Macron won by a 2 to 1 margin over the racist/xenophobic La Pen.

May 4: Trump tells press and Australian Prime Minister that Australia has a better healthcare system. Its system, called Medicare (for all) has been government funded since 1984. Individuals can purchase private insurance to pay expenses not covered, analogous to supplemental insurance in the US. Conservative Charles Krauthammer predicts single payer health insurance in the US within 7 years.

May 4: TrumpCare passed the US House. It removes 20+ million Americans from insurance, jeopardizes pre-existing insurance for a third of Americans now having that assurance and jeopardizes Medicare. No hospital or medical organization supports TrumpCare. No cost estimate for this latest version. Never before have Republicans allowed such devastation. Trump cheered. But, the House bill that Trump thinks is the best thing he ever did is so bad that the Senate will ignore it and draft its own bill.

The purpose of TrumpCare is to remove $1 trillion from healthcare and give it to the wealthy. Damage lives of many to enrich a few. Unprecedented cruelty.

As the U.S. House of Representatives ends its historic role as the People’s House, Americans know a few things more clearly than they did just 104 short days ago. Money talks. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. And joined together, money and power have begun the painful, purposeful dismantling of the Constitution and the protections it has offered for the past 228 years. (The Hill)

May 3: In the context of Russia's cyberattacking and fake news program for the 2016 election and beyond, FBI Director James Comey testified that Russia is the largest threat in the world against American democracy and that Russia learned that its cyberattacking works. It is shameful that so few Republicans are concerned and are covering up Trump's collusion with Russia to do so.

Eggregiously, Trump shifts the blame for Russia's assault to China, US national security agencies and a fat guy sitting on a bed. Too many Republicans support Trump's idiocy.

May 3: Former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) said Russia was "wildly successful" in sowing "mistrust" in U.S. election process through its meddling in the 2016 presidential race. "Their purpose was to sow discontent and mistrust in our elections, they wanted us to be at each others' throat when it was over," Rogers said Tuesday at a panel at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government. He said Russian meddling is now “influencing, I would say, [the] legislative process today. That’s wildly successful. Rogers spoke alongside former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who is scheduled to testify before Congress about Russia’s meddling next week. Clapper suggested Russia would likely attempt to influence other countries' elections. "This is the most assertive, most aggressive and most directly impactful of any engagement that they have had in our elections," Clapper said. "They have to regard what they did as a huge success. They've been doing it in France and they'll do it in Germany.” (The Hill)

Trump says the structure of the federal government invented by our founding 'fathers' is archaic. In fact, it is to check the tyranny Trump prefers. At his core, Trump's despises the core of Ameria.

May 2: Trump called for a total shutdown of the federal government in September. The world's dictators rejoice with Trump's desire to cripple the military, Medicare, Social Security, medical research, NATO....everything the US does. Of course, this will not happen. If it did, less money would be stolen by Trump from taxpayers.

Several times a day, Trump proves that he is unfit.

May 2: Illegally, Trump promoting Ivanka's book on government news service, Voice of America. Update May 4: Trump promoting Ivanka's book via US State Department.

May 1: Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross says President Trump’s missile strike in Syria served as “after-dinner entertainment” at Mar-a-Lago. "Just as dessert was being served, the president explained to Mr. Xi he had something he wanted to tell him, which was the launching of 59 missiles into Syria It was in lieu of after-dinner entertainment. The thing was, it didn’t cost the president anything to have that entertainment."

May 1: Trump's campaign for re-election has already paid Trump $300,000. Illegal of course.

May 1: "I don’t stand by anything." (Donald Trump, CBS News interview...in the same interview, Trump exonerated Russia and blamed China for meddling in the election)

May 1: Trump broke the law again today. In an ad for his re-election!, Trump used the military to sell himself. Active military members may NOT engage in political acts.

May 1: Trump said he may break up large banks, prohibiting banks from doing both consumer lending and investment banking. Trump also wants to increase the federal gas tax to help pay for his tax cuts.

So far, Trump has declared admiration only for Presidents Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-un, Rodrigo Duterte, Kim Jong-un, Tayyip Erdoğan, Abdel Fattah el-Sisi and Bashar al-Assad (Russia, Philippines, North Korea, Turkey, Egypt, Syria). All are murderous dictators who kill their opponents and are at war against the US. Trump also admires Russia's presidential candidate in France, Marine La Pen. Trump sees dictators as his role models. He hates civil rights.

May 1: Blaming Abraham Lincoln for the Civil War, Trump claimed that President Andrew Jackson was strongly against the Civil War, which began in 1861. Jackson left office in 1837 and died in 1845. There was no such thing as the Civil War in Jackson's life time. In fact, Jackson was a slave owner in Tennessee, owning 150, and wanted slavery to expand to western states. Jackson also promoted genocide of native Americans, signing the Indian Removal Act in 1830. Trump wishes he could be a slave owner and murder minorities like his idol President.

May 1: Trump found another dictator to admire, and is bringing him to the White House. Rodrigo Duterte, President of The Philippines. Trump likes Duterte's ratings and that Duterte called President Obama' mother a whore and brags about killing Filipinos with his bare hands. Duterte presided over killing 8,000 in the last 8 months without trials.

"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth." (Abraham Lincoln) Presidents need to know this. All the people, not only whites. Free elections, not voter suppression. For all the people, not only a few. America is different by these words and what they mean. Trump despises them.

April 30: Virtually everything Trump says is a lie meant to inflame bigotry and divisiveness. Carl Bernstein, "He has lied as no president of the United States in my lifetime has, day in and day out. It is our job to, as I said in that address to the correspondents' dinner last night: follow the money, yes, but follow the lies as well. Almost inevitably, unreasonable government secrecy is the enemy and usually the giveaway about what the real story might be." His campaign for 2020 rally last night, falsely called by Trump a record breaker even though the venue was far from full, consisted of nearly an hour of lies, bashing Latinos, blaming Democrats for his inability to manage and fill necessary jobs in the government, and slashing the First Amendment of the US Constitution again and again. Incredibly, Trump has convinced 56% of Republicans that Russia is a US ally. And, with a comment like this, Trump is likely to create a Kim Jong-un US fan club as well with his high praise, "He's obviously a pretty smart cookie." (update: May 1, Trump said he would be honored to meet Kim Jong-un)

April 29: TrumpCare 3 failed. Trump says version 4 will be here soon.

April 28: The U.S. economy grew at an anemic 0.7 percent rate in the first three months of the year, the weakest performance in three years.

April 27: This week, Michael Flynn's serving Russia as a foreign agent against the US is in the news. However, Flynn was also a foreign agent for Turkey against the US. Turkey paid Flynn at least $500,000 to engineer extradition of Fethullah Gulen living in Pennsylvania for return to Turkey for assassination. Notably, Ex-CIA Director James Woolsey reported in interviews March 2017 his participation in a Sept. 19, 2016 meeting at Essex House hotel in NYC with Flynn and Turkey government officials to kidnap Gulen and transfer him to Turkey without going through the extradition process. The day after election, Nov. 8, Flynn wrote an article in the Washington Post calling for Gulen's removal from the US, moving him to Turkey. Yet another crime and treason by Flynn and Trump.

April 27: Trump blamed Obama for Michael Flynn's crimes and treason done for Trump's election. Trump is a huge fraud.

April 27: InfoWars host Alex Jones, an avid supporter of President Trump during the campaign and his administration, said in a video posted to his Facebook on Thursday that Ivanka Trump’s policies are beginning to sound a lot like those of Hillary Clinton. “We did not elect Ivanka Trump to be the 45th President of the United States,” Jones says dressed in a white-collared shirt while driving a car. “I think she’s talented, she’s beautiful, I think the dresses she wears, the clothing line are cool. I have nothing against her personally. Or Jared Kushner, but we didn’t elect him to be president either. He’s a Democrat, his dad went to prison for fraud, his 666 building’s going sideways.” (Daily Beast)

April 27:TrumpCare 3 is worse than the first 2 versions. Now, Trump wants to drop coverage for pre-existing diseases and drop minimum requirements for insurance policies, thus making health insurance exorbitantly priced for some and worthless again for others. Trump keeps proving that he is a terrible negotiator and businessman.

April 27: The DOD Inspector General opened a criminal investigation of Michael Flynn, adding to investigations by the FBI, Senate and House. In a 2014 letter to Flynn from the DOD Defense Intelligence Agency, the agency advised him that it is illegal for former military officers to accept payment from a foreign government without prior approval. "Accordingly, if you are ever in a position where you would receive an emolument from a foreign government or from an entity that might be controlled by a foreign government, be sure to obtain advance approval from the Army prior to acceptance," Flynn was told.  Flynn violated this warning and US law on behalf of Russia and Trump's candidacy also on behalf of Russia.

Why is Trump covering up the crimes and treason of Michael Flynn? Because of their collusions with Russia? Why was Flynn a foreign agent while a senior member of Trump's campaign and Trump's National Security Advisor in the White House? What is the story that Flynn's lawyer said that Flynn had to tell? Why are Congressional Republicans siding with Trump's and Flynn's crimes and treason? Why does America and the US Constitution mean so little to them?

April 26: Which group is Trump lying to? Midday, Trump announced to Americans that he would unilaterally leave NAFTA. A few house later, Trump told Mexico and Canada, no. Different audience, different answer (underlying the different answers is that Trump figured out that he would lose substantially from canceling NAFTA, which permits $1.2 trillion of trade flow between the US and Canada/Mexico).

April 26: Trump war with the judicial branch of US government, now considering breaking up the 9th Circuit Court after a federal district court judge in its jurisdiction blocked his order to withhold funding from "sanctuary cities." Already doing a 'fine' job destroying the legislative branch of government, Trump has always wanted dissolution of the courts. (The 9th Circuit Court covers Arizona, California, Alaska, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, Washington and Hawaii, as well as Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands.)

April 26: Trump wasted money again, this time the PR stunt of busing 100 Senators to the White House to hear what anyone can hear on TV. Such sheep Senators have become.

April 26: Trump announced his plan to reduce revenues to the federal government by the largest amount in history, $4 trillion, in order to give his businesses the largest tax cut in history. One change alone would have benefited Trump in 2005 over $30 million.

April 26: Ivanka Trump mimics her father. Her products are made in China at sub-human labor factories where workers are paid $62 per week and work 82 hours of overtime. The Fair Labor Association found dozens of violations of international labor standards set by the U.N. International Labor Organization. Trump demands other businesses to manufacture in the US, or else.

Trump's first 100 days marked by lies, discrediting facts, claiming conspiracy against him by US and British intelligence agencies, illegality, firing his National Security Director (for criminal and anti-American activity and a self-admitted foreign agent), criminal investigations of his campaign manager (Paul Manafort) and his national security advisor (Carter Page) and his campaign advisor (Roger Stone), conflicts of interest, recusal of the US Attorney General from investigation of his collusions with Russia to win the election, federal judge rulings of violations of the US Constitution for his Muslim bans, threatening to end the US government, numerous new lawsuits against him, attacking federal judges and the judiciary, a PR bombing of Syria, killing of hundreds of civilian Muslims, countless reversals of campaign promises, failure of TrumpCare in Congress, plan to remove 24 million American from health insurance and dramatically increase its price, destroy ObamaCare with no replacement in place and ultimately the insurance industry, taking credit for Obama's accomplishments, numerous investigations into crimes and Russia collusions, tightening relationships with dictators, chaos, mismanagement, positing that his border wall with Mexico could be invisible, boasting of superiority to all other US Presidents, firing of the US Attorney General, profiting personally from taxpayer funds, starting a trade war with Canada, health department determinations of food dangers at Mar-a-Lago, threatening nuclear war with North Korea, promise to enable nuclear weapons in Iran by terminating the Iran nuclear agreement, placing the conspirators behind the global economic collapse in 2008 in charge of the economy again, threatening Republican legislators, playing golf 28% of the time, nepotism, putting Jared Kushner in charge of the White House, threatening health care, sending legal immigrants outside the US, passing off his responsibilities to Cabinet Secretaries outside the White House, the lowest ratings in US history, turning the public against the free press and toward dictators, reversing course on environmental protections, permitting river pollution, admitting his ignorance about NATO, conspiring with Rep. Devin Nunes to derail a congressional investigation of his Russian collusion, degrading America, obstruction of justice and still praising Vladimir Putin. Several large scale cover-ups of serious crimes and treason. Losing an aircraft carrier battle group for a week. Installing a red button on his Oval Office desk to summon Coca Cola. While previously hating Executive Orders, Trump has issued far more than anyone. Shame on you. Shame on Congress. Shame on the Dept. of Justice. Shame on Trump supporters.

April 25: Today, once again, Trump proved his incompetence as a manager. His official filings for his inauguration contained numerous lies about private funding.

April 25: Several federal judges ruled that Trump's Muslim bans violated the US Constitution. Today, another federal judge ruled Trump unconstitutional, this time for his order against Sanctuary Cities.

"The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds. Further, the Tenth Amendment requires that conditions on federal funds be unambiguous and timely made; that they bear some relation to the funds at issue; and that the total financial incentive not be coercive. Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the President disapproves."

April 25: Trump's business partner in Turkey, the countries dictator President, killed 30+ Iraqi and Syrian soldiers backed by the US against ISIS. OK with Trump.

April 25: Trump began his first trade war, adding a 20% tax on US imports of Canadian lumber. Homebuilders say that this will increase costs of new US homes. Stick it to Americans may be Trump's new slogan.

April 25: No wonder Trump will not comply with Congressional demands for documentation regarding Michael Flynn, fired after his Russian collusions became public (just like Carter Page and Paul Manafort were fired for their Russian collusion). Flynn, a self admitted foreign agent, illegally took payments from the Russian government, $600,000 so far identified, and did not disclose these payments on his security clearance reports. Notably, while fully required to gain security clearance for Flynn, Trump insists that he has no documentation pertaining to Flynn, saying it would be ridiculous for him to have them. More Trump treason.

Trump hates Obama because Trump scorns Obama's lack of greed and legacy to save the economy, expand healthcare, reduce wars, protect the environment, elevate minorities, reduce bigotry, respect women and provide a positive role model to our children. Trump is determined to reverse all Obama accomplishments but take credit for them (eg, today, Trump boasted that he created 500,000 jobs which resulted from Obama's policies). Trump's defining trait is insecurity. Trump realizes that he has done nothing for anyone but himself, and thus seeks to punish everyone but himself.

April 24: Trump explained why he said that NATO was obsolete. He did not know what NATO was. This is Trump's level of expertise about everything, and thus says everything is bad. As he learns the truth, Trump is systematically reversing his campaign lies which were so addicting to his voters. Trump was elected based on lies, bigotry and Russian help.

April 24: Trump has the US State Department's web site promoting his Palm Beach country club, Mar-a-Lago. Illegal. Again and again, Trump uses taxpayer funds toward his businesses.

April 24: Trump's first 100 days: chaos and lies, playing golf 28% of the time, wasting hundreds of millions of dollars for funding his vacation trips and business trips for himself and his children, mismanaging the Republican House and Senate, no significant legislation, several federal courts ruling his Muslim ban unconstitutional, PR stunt bombs in Syria, losing a aircraft carrier battle group for a week, failed military mission in Yemen, charging taxpayers millions for his businesses, virtually all promises broken, war on Latinos, more lawsuits, firing of Bill O'Reilly, more evidence of Russian collusion, endorsing Russia's Presidential candidate in France, representing white supremacy, increase in anti-Semitic violence, hiring more billionaires and Wall Street corruptors, plans to reward the ultra rich, more hiring of illegal immigrants for his businesses, harming the environment, shamed Republicans, nepotism above all, financial favors from China, killing scores of innocent Muslims, violations of US Constitution, insulting England and Germany, inspiration for millions protesting around the world, degradation of US, the lowest approval in US history.

April 22: Trump endorsing Russia's preferred candidate in France's election. Of course.

April 22: The Trump disaster has inspired the largest protest rallies since the Vietnam War. Today, Earth Day is celebrated with a global and first-ever March for Science. Down with Trump's fake news, alternative facts and degradation of knowledge.

Apology: This web site cannot keep up with Trump's travesties and corruptions. Promises broken or distorted. Honesty obliterated. Bigotry cultivated. Dangerous lack of banking controls revived. Security threatened. Health and product safety attacked. Prestige reduced. Well being damaged. The Constitution offended. Egregiously, teaching our children that lies, sexual assault, cheating and extreme self centeredness are beneficial. If the President succeeded with these traits, then I can too.

April 21: Addressing the court ruling that Trump incited violence at his campaign rallies, Trump told the court that the protesters violated his First Amendment Rights (and thus, he was exonerated from violating theirs and urging their physical injury). Notably, one of Trump's thugs says that he is exonerated from his violence against protesters because he was incited to violence by Trump.

April 21: Revealed today, not only was Trump colluding with Russia against the US, Russia was, probably still is, grooming Trump advisors to serve as spies for Russia. Specifically named was Carter Page, termed an "idiot" by one of his Russian handlers and seen as a fool ready to please both Trump and Russia....the perfect Russian mole.

Trump would not have been elected without Vladimir Putin and if Trump campaigned the way he is 'governing'. Trump's incompetency and immorality required diverting voter attention with Russia's fake news, Wikileaks, white supremacy, denegrating the US military and national intelligence community, scapegoating China and Mexico, demeaning minorities and women, and celebrity opulence and bogus promises.

April 19: A Moscow-based think tank linked to Russian President Vladimir Putin created a plan to swing the 2016 presidential election in favor of Trump. Successful it was.

April 19: Today, for the second day in a row, Russia sent nuclear weapon bombers to 36 miles of the US coast. Update: this Russian spying is ongoing, now several days in a row and likely to be continue.

In summary, Trump is inducing Russia, North Korea, Syria, Iran and ISIS to threaten the US more than they already were.

April 19: After claiming for over a year that the Iran Nuclear Deal was a failure and the dumbest deal in history, Trump officially certified that the Iran Nuclear Deal was working. Without it, Iran would have had nuclear weapons during 2017, which much appeal to Trump because he is considering breaking the deal and opening the floodgates toward Iran nuclear weapons.

April 19: Another sick Trump side effect. Florida state Sen. Frank Artiles (R) said "six niggers" in the GOP caucus had elected Joe Negron as GOP leader in the Florida Senate. Artiles also also called Negron a "pussy."


Trump's Justice Department is the hollowest in history. Still, after 3 months as President, no replacement for the 90+ fired US Attorneys fighting crime. And, the DOJ wants to roll back protections against police abuse of power against citizens, particularly African- and Hispanic- Americans (all other government agencies are hollow as well, displaying Trump weakness in management).

April 19: Trump claimed he won big in Georgia special election for a House seat held by Republicans for decades, including by Newt Gingrich. The Republican had 19% of the vote, the Democrat had 48%. Trump is so small.

April 19: Trump lost an entire aircraft carrier battle group and submarines with nuclear weapons. Last week, he announced that they were on their way to North Korea to threaten Kim Jong-un. Actually, they were parked 3,500 miles away, making Trump's boast of a powerful armada steaming to North Korea yet another weak lie. South Korea is, and everyone else should be, furious over Trump's paper-tiger bluff with North Korea. Of course, Trump is mostly bluff, as demonstrated daily with the vast differences between his campaign bluster and his vacation presidency.

April 19: Trump illegally deported an Hispanic immigrant officially authorized to be in US. Trump hate is boundless. Also today, Trump deported a mother of four U. S.-born children to Mexico. Powerful Trump.

April 19: Illegally, Ivanka Trump was awarded trademarks from China the same day that she met with China's President at Mar-a-Lago. With Trump, business first. Being President is a part time job used to enable his profits.

April 17: Trump congratulated Egypt's dictator for grabbing power by fraud and speech suppression to win a rigged election, Trump's own trademark go-to tools. Trump admires his jailing 90 journalists and 47,000 Egyptian citizens for questioning Egypt's dictator.

April 16: Trump admitted his China name calling was only for show. To Trump, China is a currency manipulator only if he doesn't like them. A currency manipulator is not a feeling, it has a meaning...except to Trump.

April 15: Little boy Trump thinks his job is an amusement park. In addition to having taxpayers paying for being out 28% of the time playing golf (costing taxpayer $100 million so far), Trump wants a ride with England's Queen in her gold carriage in October.

April 14: Trump claimed that he is immune from civil lawsuits. False. President Bill Clinton civil lawsuit, specifically his deposition taken while President regarding the lawsuit, led to Clinton's impeachment.

April 14: Using Trump's fake news BS machine, Putin says Assad's use of chemical warfare was fake, dreamed up to explain Trump's illegal attack on Syria (which did nothing other than induce Russia to replace Syria's dilapidated planes destroyed by Trump with new ones from Russia).

April 14: Although the White House does not belong to Trump and all business conducted there is supposed to be to benefit the public, Trump refuses to inform citizens of the US who visited the White House, and even more importantly, what business was conducted. The public should know all business conducted in the White House. But, Trump wants to keep his corruption and self dealing as unknown as possible. Transparency is not for him. The conservative group Judicial Watch, "This new secrecy policy undermines the rule of law and suggests this White House doesn’t want to be accountable to the American people."

Trump must be the laziest President ever. He crafted a campaign of one-liners trolling the most gullible and easy-to-persuade voters as possible. Red meat they call it. Down with honesty, down with immigrants, down with minorities, down with Hispanics, down with African Americans, down with health care, down with China, down with Islam, down with international trade, down with the environment, down with NATO, down with the US military and national security agencies. Let's use nuclear weapons because we have them. Let's have guns in schools and bars. Russia, lies, sexual assault, white supremacy and greed are good. Trump didn't know Russia was bad or health care was complicated. It was vastly easier to get votes by lying and blustering. In office, compelled by lobbyists and corporations, Trump has reversed his campaign promises. Let the swamp have what it wants. Why waste energy fighting it. Trump has delegated military operations to the Dept. of Defense to run things without oversight. Let the kids run the White House, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. Trump will mostly be at the golf courses he owns bragging about his unbelievable chocolate cake, figuring out ways to profit his businesses and dreaming up more PR stunts and threats (so far, Trump has been at Mar-a-Lago 28% of time).

April 13: Trump, relying on the military he demeaned and developed by Obama, claimed he did more against terrorism and Syria in 8 weeks than Obama did in 8 years.

April 13: Trump's PR stunt to bomb a Syrian air force base last week has resulted in Russia introducing more of its own planes and pilots to bomb Syrian civilians. Last Friday to this Tuesday, Russia killed at least 56 civilians, including 10 children and 8 women. Syrian aircraft killed 42. Yesterday and today, Russian warplanes took the lead role in air strikes in Aleppo, Idlib and Hama provinces. Where is Trump's compassion for murdered children at the hands of Russia? Instead, yesterday, Trump bombed Syria killing 18 US allies fighting ISIS in Syria. Today, Trump dropped the largest non-nuclear bomb and weighing 22,000 pounds, the first time it was ever used, in Afghanistan.

April 13: Britain’s spy agencies alerted U.S. intelligence officials to links between Trump's campaign and Russia after first noticing interactions in late 2015. Britain's Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) noticed suspicious interactions between Trump allies and known or suspected Russian agents in late 2015. (Trump claimed recently that GCHQ spied on Trump on behalf of Obama. False of course.) Other foreign nations also reportedly shared intelligence about links between Russia and Trump's campaign, including Australia, Germany, France, Netherlands, Estonia and Poland. Seven countries plus the US monitored Trump/Russian communications!

April 13: While Trump adores Wikileaks, and has yet to change his 'love' of
Wikileaks, his CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, said today, "It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a non-state hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia." In large part, Trump relied on Wikileaks/Russia to cheat voters. Pompeo mocked those who fear intelligence officials conduct surveillance through microwaves. Not long ago, Trump said NSA/FBI/CIA used microwaves to spy on him.

April 13: Taking a page out of Trump's playbook regarding his Russian connections for his election, Assad of Syria said that his chemical attack is fake news.

Trump is on track to spend 10 times as much as Obama on travel, $1 billion vs $98 million/8 years. Secret Service costs for Trump's family add even more. For example, 100 Secret Service agents escorted the president’s extended family on a spring break trip to Aspen last month. All this public spending also serves as free advertising/promotion for Trump businesses.

April 13: Is Trump trying to poison world leaders at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach? According to a report by The Miami Herald, the inspectors found 13 health violations in the resort's kitchen, including undercooled meat and dangerous fish. The inspectors deemed three of the violations to be “high priority,” which means that they could cause the presence of bacteria on dining room plates. As Trump jumped into presidential politics, so did the number of health violations. There were 11 in 2016 compared to just two in 2015. According to their latest visit to the club Jan. 26, state inspectors decided Mar-a-Lago’s kitchen did meet the minimum standards.

April 12: Like health care, Trump said today that he thought that fixing North Korea would be easy. It took China's President only 10 minutes to educate Trump, now recognizing that "it's not so easy." Trump knew nothing beyond real estate, explaining his daily astonishments at the complexity of national and international affairs. Every experience of his is the best, the biggest, the most unbelievable. Even his chocolate cake is the greatest. Trump is only now learning what most people have known for a long time.

April 12: Trump campaign manager, Paul Manafort, amended the record, admitting that he was in fact a foreign agent as Trump's campaign manager. Trump advisor Carter Page back filing as foreign agent as well, as did Michael Flynn. Trump was surrounded by illegal foreign agents for Russia. Notably, today, Trump again praised Russia as strong under Putin. (The day after Manafort left Trump's campaign due to increasing attention to Manafort's Russian connections, Trump loaned him $13 million. A payoff?)

April 12: Trump's anti-Muslim hysteria caused another Muslim death, this time the first Muslim judge in the US and first African American judge on New York's top court. She was found floating in the Hudson River about 132nd Street. Trump had no comment.

April 12: Braggart Trump shared with us his murderous childish boast with the President of China about Trump's Syria bombing. "We're now having dessert, and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen. And I said, Mr. President, let me explain something to you. This is during dessert. We've just fired 59 missiles, all of which hit by the way, unbelievable from, you know, hundreds of miles away, all of which hit. Our technology, our equipment, is better than anybody by a factor of five. What we have in terms of technology, nobody can even come close to competing. So what happens is I said, 'We've just launched 59 missiles ... heading to Iraq (presumably, Trump meant Syria; while launched missiles always hit something, not so with his words)." China's President simply grinned. More desert anyone?

We have arrived at a time where public policy is created and politicians are scared into submission by lies.

Trump was elected based on lies, his own and Putin's. His Cabinet Secretaries have declared his promises to be hyperbole, ie false advertising. The excitement of his voters that caused them to vote for Trump was baseless other than emotions Trump stirred to hate, denigrate the US and minorities, and blame immigrants for what they did not do. (April 12, Trump announced that NATO is no longer obsolete, China is no longer a currency manipulator, US-Russia relations are worse now that they were under Obama, the Export-Import Bank is a good thing, changes in Social Security and Medicare were removed from his budget proposal and he will not eliminate the national debt. And, while Trump attacked Obama for playing golf a few times, Trump has already played golf 15 times and hitting the course again this weekend. Still, however, Trump has nothing negative to say about Putin.) Combined with Trump's collusion with Russia, Trump was elected illegitimately.

Trump added a new lie April 12, claiming that the US is "not going into Syria." Truth is that Trump already has 1,000 US Troops in Syria and sending hundreds more without informing the public.

April 11: Press Secretary Sean Spicer conceded that Trump is de-stabilizing the Mid East.

April 11: Reported today, the FBI obtained a court order last summer, before the election, (FISA warrant after convincing a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court judge that there was probable cause to believe Page was acting as an agent of a foreign power, in this case Russia) to monitor Carter Page's collusion between Russia and Trump's campaign. Carter Page's was a foreign policy advisor for Trump. Undoubtedly, FBI believes that other Trump associates also acted as spies for Russia and likely similarly convinced a FISA judge to order monitoring of these actions. FISA warrants against American citizens have a high bar to achieve before approval. No wonder Trump is trying so hard to go to war with Syria and North Korea, to divert attention from treason.

April 11: Trump and Putin are fake newsing each other today. Trump says that Hitler did not use chemical weapons, even though Hitler killed millions with chemical weapons. Putin says that Assad did not use chemical weapons, even though he did, and Trump plans to release fake news that Assad again used chemical weapons in the future in order to attack Syria again (why not, attacking Syria is good politics for Trump).

Both helping each other to hide their collusion to win the White House, degrade US national security and expand fascism in the US.

Putin is the smart one of the three. The other two: weird hair, small hands, inferiority complex, lies, megalomania, mental instability, disregard for others and sociopathy...and both are itching for nuclear war.

April 9: Today, abruptly changing his position since 2013, Trump said that removing Assad from power in Syria is a top priority. His new power, to deploy the military, is great fun. Also today, Trump is sending an aircraft carrier fleet to North Korea (fleet consists of aircraft carrier, dozens of attack aircraft, destroyers and a dozen plus support attack military vessels). In both missions, Trump says he will act alone. More billions to be spent to change the news from his scandals, chaos and incompetence. Nevertheless, Trump still plays golf every week to advertise, at great taxpayer expense, his golf courses.

"The only thing scarier than Donald Trump acting unpresidential is Donald Trump acting presidential." (Saturday Night Live) Trump is with Assad against ISIS but simultaneously at war with Assad.

April 11 update. Trump bragged about sending an "armada" to North Korea, including submarines with nuclear weapons. Trump is ready for nuclear war against North Korea.

From a GQ editorial written March 2017, 2 weeks before Trump's war against Syria. "Donald Trump Could Really Use a War Right About Now. Can you imagine how desperately Donald Trump wants a war right now? How badly he is gunning for a full-on fight with a fresh enemy of the people, real or imagined, that could galvanize his limp (and getting limper) public support, stop people fake-newsing about the catastrophic failure of TrumpCare, remove the asterisk from his Glorious Victory against Hillary, and take the media spotlight off the dark web of Russian collusion that has dogged and—let us pray—will ultimately end his Brief and Terrifying Reign. He needs something to distract us from all these distractions. And there is one thing that always works. War, I am sorry to promise you, or wild and reckless military actions, will be the next game plan—that is, if Trump can start a fight faster than Congress can muster the will to repeal and replace him. And we all know how fast and furiously this man can start a fight. Along with his skills at serial bankruptcy and gold-plating entire hotel lobbies, it is, perhaps, his greatest gift."

April 7: Trump planning to send nuclear weapons to South Korea. Pre-emptive nuclear strike against North Korea? What a way to impress China.

April 6: Having the worst beginning of a presidency in history, Trump needed a diversion from mounting criminal investigations and immigrant, healthcare and spending policy losses. So, Trump went to war, bombing Syria with 59 missiles, costing at least $100 million for the mission. Of course, Trump told Russia in advance of Trump's attack so Russia could save its best aircraft from Trump's attack. For at least 4 years, Trump did not want confrontation with Syria, all the while Assad killed 500,000 Syrians and pushed 5 million Syrians out of Syria. Over the last week, he green-lighted Syria's Assad, who again ordered a chemical attack in response on Tuesday. While Trump had no problem with dozens of previous chemical attacks, including the big one in 2013 killing 1,400, Trump said Tuesday's chemical attack changed him. Undoubtedly not. Trump needed a diversion in addition to his blaming Obama. (April 7 update: the base hit by Trump is up and running, launching air strikes. Trump's diversion was so small, it had almost no impact.)

April 7, Russia said that the US and Russia are now "on the verge of a military clash," moving a war ship into the Mediterranean Sea near Syria and near the US Destroyers that launched Trump's attack.

Questions. Why is being killed by beheading, guns or bombs better than by chemical warfare? Why did take 100 chemical warfare deaths to get Trump's attention but 500,000 deaths did not? Answer. Trump didn't need a diversion during the non-chemical warfare deaths.

Trump's April 6 attack was simply a publicity stunt. It did not degrade the airport attacked or chemical weapons stored there. The airport was operational April 7, attacking the same place Assad had dropped chemical weapons a few days earlier. Old airplanes were destroyed, but they will be replaced by Russia with far better ones and bolstered with better radar facilities. Unless Trump attacks again and again, Assad will quickly be stronger than he was before Trump's attack. And, Trump had another weekend free to play golf for the 15th time since inauguration at one of his businesses, the 10th consecutive weekend.

April 6: US Attorney Preet Brahaha said that his firing was "a direct example of the kind of uncertain helter-skelter incompetence, when it comes to personnel decisions and executive actions."

April 6: Trump broke the US Senate and US Supreme Court today, a big step in his plan to degrade the judiciary to the level of the executive and legislative branches of government. Notwithstanding 100+ years of Senate history that worked through the Civil War, WWI and WWII and several Presidents and social crises, the Senate dropped the requirement for at least 60 votes for approval of a Supreme Court Justice, guaranteeing further destructive fracturing of the US. America is in decline with Trump, who has mainstreamed sexual assault, white supremacy and religious bigotry and actively violates the US Constitution for personal profit at public expense.

Trump said today that his 13 weeks in President has been the most successful in history. Um, Trump has been in office for 11 weeks....11 weeks of chaos, significant losses in Congress and in court, and fabricating criminal charges against President Obama and NSC Director Susan Rice, and more lunacy.

Trump's arrogance, grandiosity and sense of entitlement is costing taxpayers millions more that ever spent before for secret service, globe trotting by his family and maintaining 3 'white houses', the real one in DC, the north one in Manhattan and the south one in Palm Beach as well as maintaining his personal golf courses he frequents, extending Trump's gold rush at the expense of the little people.

April 6: Another casualty of Trump's Russia connections. Rep. Devin Nunes stepped down as Chair of the House Intelligence Committee for the Committee's Trump-Russia investigation. Nevertheless, Nunes remains on the Committee to spy for Trump.

April 5: Trump revealed again his Obama psychosis. Trump insists that Obama and those associated with Obama (eg, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, national security agencies) are criminals. Years ago, it began. Trump insisted that Obama was an immigrant illegally in the US. For months, Trump insisted that US national security agencies were cooperating in a grand dreamed-up criminal conspiracy against him. A month ago, Trump claimed that Obama was a felon for spying on him in Trump Tower. The FBI, DOJ and NSA says that there is no such evidence. Today, Trump blamed Obama at a press conference with Jordan's King Abdullah that Obama made Trump's presidency too difficult...for, wait for it, not taking actions that Trump opposed. Also today, Trump insisted that Susan Rice committed crimes for doing her job as US National Security Advisor. He blames Obama for his own weaknesses and claims crimes of Obama and associates that do not exist. Unfortunately, the media still presumes Trump knows things that no one else does and spends hours every day following Trump's rabbit hole diversions. Trump surrogates and enablers massage Trump's psychoses and call for investigations into Trump's bogus rabbit hole diversions to prove that Obama is a criminal. Republican legislators, scared of Trump's tweets, defend Trump's psychoses. Trump pendulum swings between hating Obama and feeding his greed. Heaven help us survive Trump delusions.

Not only do we need to see Trump's real tax returns, we need to see his real medical records.

April 5: Falsely, as usual, Trump claimed that he achieved more progress against ISIS in the past 6 weeks than occurred in several years before. In fact, all Trump has done so far is continue Obama's plan, which has reaped major achievements. Only Mosul in Iraq remains to be cleared, whereas when the campaign against ISIS began it controlled much of Iraq.

April 5: Trump and Russia are together again. Both blame President Obama for Syria's chemical weapon attack against Syrian civilians yesterday...using Russian aircraft and a green light from Trump a few days ago. At a press conference today, Trump whined that dealing with Syria is too difficult for him, wishing that Obama could have made things easier for him. Trump is incompetent and overwhelmed.

Trump's hypocrisy was on display again. This year alone, Assad dropped chemical weapons from Russian planes. Over the past 5 years, Assad has killed hundreds of thousands Syrian civilians. Over the past few days, Trump green-lighted Assad's treachery. But today, he said everything changed and Assad crossed many lines beyond a red line for yesterday's chemical bombs.

Trump hypocrisy all in one week...April 3, Trump wanted Assad to stay in place; by April 6, Trump wanted to remove Assad.

Update: April 6, more hypocrisy. Trump is demanding that Twitter Corp. UNMASK the owner of a Twitter account. Twitter filed lawsuit against Trump for violating the US Constitution. In response, Trump dropped his demand against Twitter.

April 5: Another disgusting Trump day. After Bill O'Reilly settled several sexual harassment cases for $13 million and 30+ advertisers canceled their advertising with O'Reilly, Trump said that O'Reilly should have taken the assaulted women to court because he did nothing wrong when he harassed/assaulted numerous women. Famously, Trump previously bragged about his prowess to sexually assault women. Also today, Trump charged Susan Rice, an African-American woman, with crimes during her tenure as National Security Advisor. Trump claimed, "It’s such an important story for our country and the world. It is one of the big stories of our time." Age and the Presidency has yet to provide Trump with respect for women.

More Trump diversions, throwing out bombastic lies to divert attention from his treason, and an array of criminal investigations into Trump's collusion with Russia (eg, Michael Flynn's request for immunity from prosecution in exchange for testifying in investigations into Trump's treason). Bogus shell games the tools of the guilty.

April 4: Trump confident Alex Jones today: "But (Rep. Adam) Schiff looks like the archetypal cocksucker with those little deer-in-the-headlight eyes and all his stuff. And there’s something about this fairy, hopping around, bossing everybody around, trying to intimidate people like me and you. I want to tell Congressman Schiff and all the rest of them, Hey listen asshole … listen you son of a bitch, what the fuck is your problem? You want to sit here and say that I’m a goddamn fucking Russian. You get in my face with that I’ll beat your goddamn ass, you son of a bitch. You piece of shit. You fucking goddamn fucker. Listen fuck head, you have fucking crossed a line. Get that through your goddamn fucking head. Stop pushing your shit. You’re the people that have fucked this country over and gang-raped the shit out of it and lost an election. So stop shooting your mouth off claiming I’m the enemy. You got that you goddamn son of a bitch? Fill your hands. I’m sorry, but I’m done. You start calling me a foreign agent, those are fucking fighting words. He’s sucking globalist dick." Music to Trump's ears.

April 4: ISIS said today that the United States was drowning and "being run by an idiot". Trump's war on Islam is ISIS's best recruitment tool.

April 4: Last year, Trump called Syria's Assad a partner. Last week, via Secretary Tillerson, Trump announced a change in US policy toward Assad, saying that the US no longer wants Assad out of power in Syria. Assad Trump's support as a green light to bomb its citizens today with chemical weapons, killing 100+ civilians, dozens of young children, and seriously harming many more. Trump has no comment on this use of a war of mass destruction against Muslims by either Assad or Putin other than blaming Obama.

Since 2013, Trump's position has been to do nothing in Syria, let them die. Trump applauded Russia's support of Assad's atrocities against Syrians.

April 3: Larry King, "this is one of the most ridiculous presidencies I’ve ever seen."

April 3: Cambridge, Mass., voted to approve a resolution calling for Congress to begin an impeachment investigation into President Trump.

April 3: Again, Trump is manufacturing fake news on behalf of Russia. This time, Trump used his reckless half-witted National Security Council to re-define proper behavior of Obama's National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, into something nefarious, then illegally leak the fake news to Fox News for broadcast from an anonymous source, Trump. Trump's allegation: that Susan Rice MAY HAVE asked who Russian spies were talking about in their recorded conversations. Since Trump says that they were he and his campaign associates, begging the question why were Russian spies so interested in Trump, Trump concludes that mere mention of his and his associate's name by Russian spies means that Obama was spying on Trump. Trump demonstrates again delusions and war with US national security agencies. (If Susan Rice did ask who Russian spies were talking about, Rice would have been wrong not to have asked who Russian spies were talking about.)

A white-collar criminal, Trump is using unrelated and falsified evidence to cover-up treason. Trump is desperate.

April 3: The bother (and founder of a military-style mercenary business) of Education Secretary Betsy Devos met with a close Putin associate in early January, creating another secret connection between Trump and Putin. Carter Page, another Trump associate, met with a Russian spy in 2013.

April 3: That Trump is paranoid about spying on him is an understatement. But, today, Trump sold everyone else's privacy by repealing Internet privacy. Now, our Internet usage can be tracked and sold.

April 3: Trump praises dictators who murder and torture. Today's example is Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, who, in 2013, led a military coup to takeover Egypt. In the White House, a place el-Sisi was previously not invited to because of his treachery, Trump was sure to shake his hand with a big smile, calling el-Sisi his friend. (Trump refused to shake the hand of Angela Merkel)

April 3: Trump lives in a world of fiction, delusion and psychosis. He has turned over his responsibilities mostly to Jared Kushner. Rather than read and listen to necessary matters, Trump watches TV and tweets his reviews. He parades repetitive sound bites and lives in the past, particularly regarding the election. Today, for example, Trump is whining about Hillary Clinton's campaign. At 70 years old, Trump cannot grow up.

It is likely that Trump likes Russia not so much for its policies but for their financial enrichment of Trump's businesses. He will ruin America for personal profit. Nothing means more to Trump than money. (Trump revised his 'trust' financial arrangement to pay him while President. Another Trump scam.)

April 2: A federal judge in Kentucky is allowing a lawsuit by three protesters assaulted at a Donald Trump campaign rally last March to move forward, agreeing with the plaintiffs that Trump's call from the podium for his supporters to "get 'em out of here" incited rally-goers to physically attack them. The opinion, from U.S. District Judge David J. Hale of the Western District of Kentucky, denied most of Trump's motion to dismiss the charges, saying that his angry demand for the removal of the protesters was "particularly reckless." Update: a white supremacist who perpetrated violence is claiming that Trump incited his violence.

April 2: Worth repeating. Clint Watts testified to Congress that Trump uses exactly the same techniques as Putin against the United States. This is not feasibly a coincidence. Russia speaks, and Trump tweets. (Watts, now a Fellow of the  Foreign Policy Research Institute, served as a U.S. Army infantry officer, a FBI Special Agent on a Joint Terrorism Task Force, as the Executive Officer of the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point and as a consultant to the FBI’s Counter Terrorism Division and National Security Branch.)

Watts says that Russia is still winning, still generating fake news...concentrating it when Trump is online. Trump 'dutifully' responds with more attacks against the US, the US media, US national security agencies and elected representatives. Trump is fighting any pursuit of the truth or remedy. "The other thing is we cannot counteract measures if we are anti-NATO and anti-EU. That is Russian propaganda as well ... that's what it seems like our administration is pushing right now." Russia speaks, and Trump tweets. Trump has become America's biggest enemy, pleasing US adversaries very much.

April 2: Mountains and mole hills. There is a mountain of evidence and several serious investigations against Trump. Like any guilty criminal or sociopath, Trump shifts blame to infinitely remote diversions lacking any evidence or serious investigation.

April1: This should be an April fool, but it isn't. Rather than use all the intelligence agencies that report to him (eg CIA, NSA, DNI, FBI, DHS), Trump uses Fox News' fake news and an anonymous source, claiming today (again actually) that the US intelligence community is conspiring against him, tweeting "Wow, @FoxNews just reporting big news. Source: 'Official behind unmasking is high up. Known Intel official is responsible. Some unmasked not associated with Russia. Trump team spied on before he was nominated. If this is true, does not get much bigger. Would be sad for U.S." If it is true?! Doesn't he know? Of course he does, the US intelligence community says it didn't happen, but Trump prefers bogus conspiracy theories. [At best, the basis for this 'breaking news', a rehash of old fake news, is that customary US intelligence of conversations between foreign Russian spies mention Trump for being elected. Trump calls this spying on him by the US.]

Trump wants NOT to receive analysis from the US intelligence community but instead get raw intelligence, perhaps to better share 'sources and methods' with Russia.

April 1: Trump is more than April's fool. He is the world's fool.

Mar 31: Trump continues to have zero concern with Russian interference in the United States. Rather, he invites it and capitalizes on it...while claiming that it does not exist (ie, fake news).

Watch Trump for an education of the tools and successes of white collar criminals who defraud the public for hundreds of billions of dollars every year. Bragging, obfuscating, bluffing, lying, shifting blame, attacking, covering up, hiding evidence, destroying evidence, threatening, conspiring, projecting wealth, capitalizing on gullibility, blackmailing, character assassinating, bribing, cheating, falsifying evidence, obstructing justice. Trump has honed these skills for fifty years. Every tweet, every speech, everything Trump does portrays guilt and degrades America.

Mar 30: Following a day of bombshell news, Trump's Russian whisperer and self-admitted secret foreign agent Michael Flynn said that he will testify before Congress and the FBI IF he is granted immunity from criminal prosecution. Flynn says he has a story to tell but needs immunity from prosecution to tell it. Notably, last year, Flynn said, "When you are given immunity you probably committed a crime." Last year, Trump said, "The reason they get immunity is because they did something wrong. If they didn't do anything wrong, they don't think in terms of immunity. If you're not guilty of a crime then why do you need immunity?"

Mar 30: Amidst numerous bombshells from the Senate Intelligence Hearing into Trump and Russia is the recognition of the Committee that Russia's interference inside the US is ongoing. Russian operatives have even been active in US politics through this week, driving a wedge between Republicans after the fallout from the health care bill failure, said Clinton Watts, a senior fellow at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University. "This past week we observed social media campaigns targeting speaker of the House Paul Ryan hoping to foment further unrest amongst US democratic institutions," Watts told senators. Still, Trump does nothing to disuade Russia's (info)war against the US.

Watts also testified that Russia's 'active measures' (computer hacking, fake news, Twitter bots, social media enterprise) worked because Trump used them, often in close connection with their release.

Mar 30: Sean Spicer, representing Trump, could not answer this question today in the White House briefing with 'YES'. "Can you say with certainty that there's nobody working for this White House that is presently working in the interest of a foreign gov't?" Obviously, there are Russian agents with Trump even now.

Mar 30: Trump had at least 3 White House staffers to leak classified information to Rep. Devin Nunes, Ezra Cohen-Watnick (close associate to Flynn and lawyer for the NSC), John Eisenberg (top lawyer for the NSC) and Michael Ellis (a national security lawyer with the White House Counsel's Office). Then, Nunes illegally announced the information to the press, also lying (Nunes previously said his White House 'deep throat' was not a White House staffer). (Trump is again caught lying, previously saying that no one from the White House helped Nunes.)

Rep. Ted Yoho's (R-Fla.) said today, "You have to keep in mind who [Nunes] works for," Yoho told MSNBC. "He works for the president and answers to the president."

Because the FBI would not disclose to Trump details of its criminal investigation against Trump, Trump is using classified intelligence to spy on the FBI.

Mar 30: Even though Trump derailed the House Intelligence Committee by turning its Chair into his 'asset', the Senate began its bipartisan week-long open hearing into Russian interference of the 2016 election for Trump. Still, Trump is kicking and screaming, refusing to cooperate, let alone lead. (the 8-month-long FBI criminal investigations continue)

Surprising Sen. Marco Rubio at the hearing, an FBI agent informed the committee that Russia (helping Trump against not only Clinton) targeted Rubio and Jeb Bush in Russia's influence operation. "It was the promotion of Trump over all other candidates. They were promoting him at such a volume that it drowned out organic support for Republican candidates… there’s a pumping up of one candidate and discrediting of the opponent, and there’s a combination of the two." (Clint Watts) Notably, Trump said to Rubio during the campaign, "Mark, I'm coming after you," concurrently with Russia's assault on Rubio. Trump's Russia collusion is larger than we already knew.

"There were upwards of 1,000 paid Internet trolls working out of a facility in Russia, in effect, taking over series of computers, which is then called a 'botnet,'" Sen. Mark Warner said. "If you Googled 'election hacking' leading up to the election and immediately afterwards, you wouldn't get Fox or ABC, The New York Times, what you got is four out of the first five news stories that popped up were Russian propaganda."

Mar 30: Now that awareness of Trump's collusion with Russia is gaining, Trump now thinks that his grand promise to embrace Russia openly is remote. And, as awareness grew, the Kushner family terminated its real estate deal with China for $2.85 billion and profit themselves $400 million.

The Trump-Russia collusion not only got him elected. In addition to degrading the United States, it is destabilizing Europe by degrading the European Union and NATO, and, like Russia did in the US for 2016, Russia is interfering with elections in France and Germany. Both anti-globalists, Putin is thrilled that Trump is supporting and not criticizing what Putin is doing to degrade admiration for America and disrupt the world order, to insult England and Germany and to separate the US from the rest of the world. Russia is also a major player in the move to separate California from the US. Divide and conquer, the motto for both Trump and Putin.

Mar 30: Trump tweeted ... "The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don't get on the team, & fast. We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!" Trump's formula to break the United States.

Mar 30: A federal judge halted Trump's Muslim ban, again. Religious freedom was re-affirmed. A Muslim ban is unconstitutional. "Where the historical context and the specific sequence of events leading up to the adoption of the challenged Executive Order are as full of religious animus, invective, and obvious pretext as is the record here, it is no wonder that the Government urges the Court to altogether ignore that history and context. The Court, however, declines to do so. The Court will not crawl into a corner, pull the shutters closed, and pretend it has not seen what it has. Plaintiffs have shown a strong likelihood of succeeding on their claim that the Executive Order violates First Amendment rights under the Constitution. Defendants and all their respective officers, agents, servants, employees, and attorneys, and persons in active concert or participation with them, are hereby enjoined from enforcing or implementing Sections 2 and 6 of the Executive Order across the Nation. Enforcement of these provisions in all places, including the United States, at all United States borders and ports of entry, and in the issuance of visas is prohibited, pending further orders from this Court."

Mar 29: Now, after Trump put the country through the debacle of TrumpCare and Congressional crisis, Trump claims that fixing healthcare will be easy and quick. Delusional again.

Why do politicians and authoritarians not appreciate that their bad acts are being recorded for history? Fifty years from now, imagine how Trump will be referenced? Like previous despots, con men, sociopaths and traitors?

A question for now. Why is Trump fighting inquiry into Russia's interference with democracy?

Also nagging. Why is terrorism from those POSING as Muslims so much worse that that from those who kill far more, from those that go into schools and churches to murder, from mass- or state-sponsored rape, or from genocide? Why does Trump ignore all but from those POSING as Muslims?

Mar 28: Trump asserted in court this week that he should be immune from a defamation lawsuit filed against him in association with Trump's sexual assault because of his presidential duties. Notably, Trump is relying on the case Clinton v Jones. However, in its unanimous decision, the US Supreme Court ruled that a sitting President has no immunity from civil litigation. Separation of powers does not mandate that federal courts delay all private civil lawsuits against the President until the end of his term of office. Certainly, we need testimony under oath from Trump. No one is above the law.

Mar 28: Trump lies never end. He promised a cheap but great Mexican wall, so cheap it would be free. But, Trump now wants $1 billion for 62 miles of wall (48 miles of new wall, the rest needs repair). That's $16 million per mile. For the wall 1,954 miles long, Trump will need $31 billion plus interest. Such a wall could add up to $100 billion by the time it is paid for. Trump's wall will come to be known as Trump's Folly.

Mar 28: To expand his real estate developments over the years, Donald Trump, his company and partners repeatedly turned to wealthy Russians and oligarchs from former Soviet republics — several allegedly connected to organized crime, according to a USA TODAY review of court cases, government and legal documents and an interview with a former federal prosecutor. After Trump addressed potential investors in Moscow, he bragged to Real Estate Weekly about his access to Russia's rich and powerful. “I have a great relationship with many Russians, and almost all of the oligarchs were in the room,” Trump said, referring to Russians who made fortunes when former Soviet state enterprises were sold to private investors. New York City real estate broker Dolly Lenz told USA TODAY she sold about 65 condos in Trump World at 845 U.N. Plaza in Manhattan to Russian investors, many of whom sought personal meetings with Trump for his business expertise. “I had contacts in Moscow looking to invest in the United States,” Lenz said. “They all wanted to meet Donald. They became very friendly.” Many of those meetings happened in Trump's office at Trump Tower or at sales events, Lenz said. Anybody who is an oligarch or is in any position of power in Russia got it because (President) Vladimir Putin or somebody in power saw some reason to give that person that job,” CIA's Steven Hall said in an interview. “All the organized crime figures I’ve ever heard of (in Russia) all have deep connections and are tied in with people in government."

Mar 28: Contradicting Trump's promise to bring back millions of coal industry jobs, coal executives insist that return of the coal industry will not happen. Power companies are also shifting away from coal.

Mar 28: In 2015, while Obama was President, Ford Motor Company announced a $9 billion investment in US facilities and 8,500 new jobs through 2019. Today, Trump took credit. (Today, Ford gave more specifics of its U.S. investment plan, saying it will put $1.2 billion into three Michigan plants, planning to create or retain 130 jobs at one of those facilities.)

Mar 28: In 1974, the GOP lost 49 House and 8 Senate seats because it was defending a corrupt, criminal President. Now, Republicans are defending a more corrupt, criminal President.

Mar 28: Sally Yates, Trump's first Attorney General but fired by Trump for not defending his Muslim ban, was scheduled to testify to the House Intelligence Committee today. However, when Trump learned this from Yates' lawyer last week, Trump ordered Nunes, the Committee Chair, to cancel all Committee meetings this week. Trump does not want Yates to testify about Michael Flynn's cover up of illicit contacts with Russian spies on behalf of Trump. (Yates informed Trump about Flynn but Trump lied about Flynn until media reports surfaced, then fired Flynn and Yates)

Nunes says that he will "never" disclose his "sources and methods", ie, he will not tell anyone who illegally leaked classified information to him that he has now been talking about for a week.

Mar 28: Trump turns US into reality TV. Trump maintains silence about Russia's crackdown on free speech and jailing Putin opponents.

Daily, Trump demeans the White House, the presidency and the American people.

The Nunes debacle is a classic Trump smokescreen. Trump boasted often during the campaign that he corrupted politicians for a career. This time it is Rep. Devin Nunes. Called to the White House in the dark using 2 cars to shake any tail, Nunes sneaked onto White House grounds and was let in the door and onto a White House computer by White House staff. What Nunes saw on the computer turned out to be empty, possibly even falsified nothingness planted by Trump. Over the past week, Nunes has given several unprecedented press conferences putting his corruption on display, giving answers that opposed each other in succession. Eg, Trump was monitored, then he wasn't, then it was possible, then he was, then it needs to be investigated, then he was, then we have to see what the intelligence agencies say. All a big Trump smokescreen to cover up certain his Russian collusion to dupe voters for his election with Russian fake news, Russian computer hacking, many meetings with Russian spies and ridiculous attempts to shift the blame (eg, last night, Trump tweeted that everyone should investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton instead of his Russian crimes). All we have to do is observe what Trump has done throughout his business and litigation career, lie.

Trump hopes everyone is as stupid as he found in his business frauds with the banks, regulators, litigants and politicians. Every few days, we learn of another secret meeting between Trump associates with Russian spies. Yesterday, we learned Jared Kushner met with 2 notorious Russian spies during December 2016. One was Sergei Gorkov, a Putin oligarch and the Chairman of the Russian bank under Western economic sanctions over Russia's incursion into Ukraine and possible investor into Kushner's Fifth Avenue skyscraper sale to make him $400 million after sale of the building for $1.8 billion now that he co runs the White House with Steve Bannon, a self-described Leninist (Lenin: Russian revolutionary who employed a strict version of Marxism to create Russian Communism and created the Soviet Union.) An employee from Gorkov's bank was convicted March 2016 for acting as an spy for the Russian government after prosecution by Preet Brahaha, fired by Trump and in the process of additional prosecutions of corrupt Russian bankers, Notably, Michael Flynn, who is a foreign agent himself, discussed easing sanctions against Russia with at least one Russian spy during 2016. Previously, Gorkov was the deputy chairman of Sberbank, Russia’s largest state bank and famous for international money laundering. Sberbank is now in the news for hiring Trump’s longtime lawyer, Marc Kasowitz, to defend it in court. Gorkov had earlier graduated from the Russian spy college. While Kushner claims that his meeting with this Russian spy was simply to say hello, the bank issued a statement yesterday that thee meeting was to discuss business and not simply to say hello. Indeed, the plot is very thick when it comes to Trump's collusions with Russian spies and Vladimir Putin to tear down the US government and democracy.

And Rudy Giullani is keeping busy. Eg, he is representing Reza Zarrab, 33, a Turkish citizen charged with tricking U.S. businesses into doing millions of dollars in deals with Iran, in violation of sanctions. The case was being prosecuted by Preet Brahaha, conveniently fired by Trump. Giuliani visited Erdogan in Turkey to discuss Zarrab's case, the Times reports. Giuliani was reportedly accompanied by Michael Mukasey, another American lawyer for Zarrab. Mukasey, a previous U.S. Attorney General, is a partner with Giuliani. Mukasey is also the father of Marc Mukasey, who has been reported as one of White House's candidates to replace former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. And, Michael Flynn, close Trump confidant, is a foreign agent for Turkey. And, Trump has big business in Turkey.

Mar 27: It is clear that Trump has turned over the presidency to others. The White House is under the control of Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner. Trump authorized DOD and CIA to conduct war on their own.

Mar 27: During Tump's first 63 days in office, the Wall Street Journal counted 317 Trump lies. A fake President. In Trump's first 66 days, he visited one of his businesses 21 days.

Mar 27: In December, Jared Kushner met with Russia's top spy in the US twice, and at this spy's request, Kushner met with the head of Russia’s state-owned development bank and trained spy for Russia about sanctions from the Obama administration after Putin of annexed Crimea and began meddling in Ukraine. Senate investigators plan to question Jared Kushner.

Mar 27: Another campaign promise broken. Trump boasted that he would not see another one of his golf courses again because he would be "working my ass off" in the White House. In first 2 months, Trump went to his golf courses 13 times, costing taxpayers millions of dollars and travels most weekends to Palm Beach, Florida, costing more millions. And, going to his DC restaurant and Manhattan home, costing more millions. Millions have already been paid directly to Trump businesses, paid for by taxpayers.

So famously lazy in office, Fox News posted a news alert yesterday claiming that Trump was working in the White House over the weekend. Braking news. Home alone, wonder what Trump did? Certainly nothing good the the country.

Mar 26: Anti-Putin opposition leader Alexei Navalny, protesters detained at Moscow rally. Police arrest hundreds of people across Russia during anti-corruption protests. Putin also kills his opponents and arrests media representatives, and has started investigations into US media. Trump would like to do all this in US. Putin claims that the protesters across Russia are paid protesters. (The nationwide protests in Russia against Putin look like the nationwide protest in the US against Trump. Both Putin and Trump claim that their protesters are paid.)

Trump, as usual, has no criticism of Putin.

Trump on Trump: "I've watched the politicians. I've dealt with 'em all my life. If you can't make a good deal with a politician, there's something wrong with you, you're certainly not very good." Finally, Trump says something true.

Mar 26: Crass and bigoted, Trump insulted Germany during Angela Merkel's visit to the White House in many ways, including handing her a $3.74 billion invoice. Tacky. Merkel could not be intimidated by Trump's new proof of incompetence and Trump's demand for protection money playing The Godfather mafia character.

Mar 26: Trump hates Muslims so much that he has killed hundreds of innocent Muslim civilians the past few days. Trump promised to kill families, now he has. "Bomb the shit out of them," Trump said. Mar 28, Trump said that the military is "fighting like never before and doing very very well."

Mar 25: Trump tweeted to his 27 million followers to watch Fox News at 9 PM. On cue, Judge Jeanine Pirro opened her show, "Paul Ryan needs to step down as House speaker. The reason: He failed to deliver the votes on his health care bill." TrumpCare was rejected by Congress and hundreds of millions of Americans," said Fox Business Network's Stuart Varney.

Mar 25: Ex-CIA Director James Woolsey said he attended a September 2016 meeting where other participants, including then-Trump adviser and still foreign agent Mike Flynn, talked of kidnapping from Pennsylvania and moving Fethullah Gulen back to Turkey without going through U.S. extradition process. Illegal of course. (parenthetically, in the last 5 months, Putin killed 8 of his rivals)

Mar 25: Headlines around the world trumpeted the downfall of TrumpCare, and point to numerous lawsuits, criminal and counterintelligence and ethics investigations against Trump. The world also knows that Congress is part of Trump's cover up of corruption and treason. The world knows that Trump staff in the White House and agencies are purging their phones and computers of evidence as part of Trump's obstruction of justice. Illegal of course.

Mar 24: Rep. Devin Nunes, House Intelligence Committee Chair, is Trump's most obvious point man in Congress to obstruct justice and enable Trump's treason. Following FBI announcement of a criminal investigation into Trump that began July 2016, Nunes addressed the press Mar 22, and then Trump directly, to exonerate Trump, claiming after illegally leaking classified information he said he saw in dozens of secret reports that suggested that Trump and his associates had been monitored by national intelligence agencies (the source of what Nunes saw is likely Trump). However, today, his story changed. What he saw were reports, once again illegally leaking classified information, of conversations of foreigners, perhaps some Russian spies, that mentioned Trump's name and that of some of his associates. Of course, foreigners say Trump's and his associates's name, they are headlining the news for treason. Nunes has turned the only investigation in the US House into a press outlet for Trump. And, House Speaker is endorsing Nunes's actions. Corruption to defend corruption.

Watergate was a coverup of a burglary. This could be the coverup of a nuclear-armed U.S. nemesis that infiltrated our politics with the specific aim of disrupting the very foundation of our democracy — a presidential election — and did so, possibly, in a manner that elected its preferred candidate and locked in all party control that could decimate the opposition party for years. (Mike Allen)

Update, Mar 27: Nunes met with his source (for his illegal leak of classified information) AT THE WHITE HOUSE before he announced to the press. Late Mar 27, the White House said that a member of Trump's administration (illegally) leaked the classified information to Nunes.

Perspective: ObamaCare is the law of the land AND it is in Trump's hands. Trump announced that he will violate the law and direct ObamaCare to explode, ruining the healthcare of hundreds of millions of Americans. Trump is determined to preside over a dramatic decline in the quality of life and increase in premature death of Americans. Trump will similarly ruin the economy, international relations, national security and peace.

Perspective: When investors/Wall Street realize that Trump's domestic agenda will fail like TrumpCare, imagine what will happen to the stock market. Trump's plan to destroy the economy will be even more problematic in Congress and generate even more protests by the public than TrumpCare.

Mar 24: Rather than hide in the shadows, Russia applied for a White House press pass and membership in the press pool traveling with Trump. This way, Russia can speak anytime it wants with Trump directly and bypass intelligence monitoring.

Mar 24: About 3:00 PM, Trump told Speaker Paul Ryan to cancel the vote on TrumpCare because it became obvious finally to Trump that TrumpCare would lose in Congress. Ryan cancelled the vote 2 days in a row. Trump's face to face meetings with 120+ Representatives failed. Congress defeated Trump (without Russia's help to him win). It was already a loser with the public. (during the day's excitement, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner went skiiing)

Yesterday, Trump said firmly, pass TrumpCare today or ObamaCare IS the law of the land.

For seven years, Republicans boasted that they had the perfect health care plan, Trump chimed in during the campaign. Today, it exploded. Seven years of lies exposed.

Even though TrumpCare is dead, we have a problem. Trump is illegally sabotaging ObamaCare with adverse consequences already happening.

(Mar 24: Putin has chosen his next President, this time for France. Putin endorsed his candidate: far-right-wing, anti-European-Union, anti-NATO, anti-immigrant, anti-American, pro-Trump candidate Marine Le Pen. La Pen traveled to Moscow today for Putin's endorsement and joint photo. We already know that Putin is hacking France' computers for La Pen like he did in 2016 for Trump.)

Trump friend, Putin, is arming the Taliban in Afghanistan to kill US troops.

Mar 24:Trump summoned FBI Director James Comey to the White House for a meeting not listed on Trump's schedule. Mar 20, Comey testified in Congress that Trump and his associates have been under criminal investigation for colluding with Russia for Trump's election, and testified that Trump's claim that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower was false. Being fired? Obstruction of justice to interfere with FBI's criminal investigation? Friday afternoon at the movies with popcorn?

Mar 23: Trump informed the House of Representatives that they approve TrumpCare tomorrow, Friday, or ObamaCare will be the law of the land, and Trump will skip further work on healthcare and move onto the budget and tax reform for the wealthy. Take it or leave it, Trump's art of the deal.

Mar 23: The Media Have Finally Figured Out How to Cover Trump’s Lies. Not just falsehood by falsehood, but as the defining feature of his presidency. Even Fox News has begun to set boundaries around the degree of pro-Trump dishonesty it will tolerate: This week it suspended one of its top legal commentators over false claims about wiretapping, which the White House had subsequently latched onto. That Trump is a professional peddler of smears and conspiracies has been clear from the outset. Trump’s reliance on dishonesty is not incidental to his character, or his appeal, or his approach to politics. It is his defining feature, shaping everything from how he talks, to the views he holds, to the way he conducts business and politics. (Will Oremus)

Perspective: It is not possible that Trump did not collude with Russia to win the election. Otherwise, he would aid the many investigations rather than lie about them, blame the media/Democrats/Obama, infuse smokescreens, blame US national security agencies, blame the United Kingdom and claim his lead advisors, who had/have extensive Russian connections, (eg, campaign manager Paul Manafort) had little role in his campaign. Trump consistently sides with Russia and criticizes the US. Everything he does is a cover-up of his treason. His behavior matches that of guilty criminals.

Mar 23: TrumpCare 2.0 increases the federal deficit and increases the number who will lose health insurance even more than the first version. After this second CBO assessment, Trump removed even more health insurance, removing the ObamaCare requirement that health insuance policies have minimum requirments. Under Trump's latest healthcare downgrade, people will find out when they need to use their insurance that their policy does not cover their expenses.

TrumpCare will not require insurance policies to cover outpatient care, emergency room trips, in hospital care, pregnancy/maternity/new born care, mental health and substance abuse, prescription drugs, rehabilitation, lab tests, preventative services, preventive medicine or pediatric services. In short, insuance does not have to cover what we purchase insurance for. Imagine the explosion in public sentiment will be if TrumpCare is approved and everyone finds that they have little or no coverage while paying more than they are now.

Trump, Pence and 30+ Republican representatives, all male, met at the White House to ask why men have to pay for insurance that covers their wives for maternity, new born pediatric services. Old white men still think that they no responsibility for creating or caring for children.

Trump is trying to turn healthcare insurance into a placebo.

Mar 23: The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, US officials told CNN. This is partly what FBI Director James Comey was referring to when he made a bombshell announcement Monday before Congress that the FBI is investigating the Trump campaign's ties to Russia, according to one source. In his statement on Monday Comey said the FBI began looking into possible coordination between Trump campaign associates and suspected Russian operatives because the bureau had gathered "a credible allegation of wrongdoing or reasonable basis to believe an American may be acting as an agent of a foreign power." Last July, Russian intelligence agencies began orchestrating the release of hacked emails stolen in a breach of the Democratic National Committee and associated organizations, as well as email accounts belonging to Clinton campaign officials, according to U.S. intelligence agencies. (CNN)

Perspective: Shame on Republicans in Congress. When terrorists attacked us September 11, 2001, an independent commission was quickly dispatched. However, when Russia attacks the US, the best they can do is take marching orders from Trump, a target of the investigation, to destroy the investigations.

Perspective: It can reasonably be said that our dear leader is now the most ridiculed man on the planet. In fact, he may well be the most ridiculed man in history. (Vanity Fair)

Mar 22: "I’ve been saying for a while that there’s a coverup going on here. The coverup is among those who worked in the Trump campaign and associates of Trump and it’s now becoming much more clear what it is that they have been concealing which are these contacts. The heroes of Watergate were really Republicans, they were Republicans in the House and the Senate who wanted this investigated to the bottom: What did the president know and when did he know it. That’s what we’re not seeing here. We’re not seeing it from the Republicans on the Hill who are consumed by supposedly looking for leaks." (Carl Bernstein)

Mar 22: Trump declined to join other countries in criticizing China over allegations of torture against human rights lawyers. The U.K., Germany, Canada and eight others signed a letter raising concerns about lawyers and rights activists detained incommunicado for long periods. Why? Because Trump despises human rights and loves torture.

Mar 22: Last week, Trump blamed England for wiretapping Trump Tower. Today, Trump blames possible terrorist attack in London on its mayor, a Muslim.

Mar 22: Revealed today, Trump sent a 17 year old to cease and desist her web site because it allowed users to plunk a cat's paw over Trump's photo.

Mar 22: Sen. John McCain called for outside investigation into Russian hacking of presidential election and Trump's collusion with Russia. "It's a bizarre situation, and what I think, the reason why I'm calling for this select committee or a special committee, is I think that this back-and-forth and what the American people have found out so far that no longer does the Congress have credibility to handle this alone."

Mar 22: Announced today is that there is DIRECT EVIDENCE as well as circumstantial evidence reviewed Mar 20 at a Congressional hearing showing treasonous collusion between Trump and Russia for Trump to gain the US presidency. Everyday, the leading news revolves around Trump crimes, violations of the Constitution, support of Russia, Trump's denigration of US national security agencies, Trump's Muslim ban, Trump's conflicts of financial interests, etc. It is time for Trump to testify under oath under penalty of perjury, impeachment and conviction. Trump's surrogates in Congress should be subjected to the same. Why did Trump and his associates have so many contacts with foreign agents and why are so many now representing foreign agents? Every day, obstruction of justice. Every day, Trump reduces the United States and elevates Russia more and more.

Mar 22: Big news today is that Trump says he is vindicated by learning that some of his surrogates were caught speaking with Russian spies. The media, of course, is off base as usual, elevating Trump's 'feeling' to breaking vague news briefed to Trump in some sort of emergency by Rep. Devin Nunes, during which he illegally leaked classified information and bypassed his Intel Committee and Speaker of the House, FBI, DOJ, CIA, NSA, going straight to Trump. We have known for years that Russian spies are recorded via orders issued by judges. We have known for years that when foreign agents speak to other foreign agents, names of US citizens may come up. We have known for months that Trump surrogates were caught on some of these recordings, eg Michael Flynn. As usual, Trump is trying to take advantage of the public misinformation and the media's regurgitating breaking news of Trump misinformation. Still, Trump lied when he said Obama wiretapped him. The FBI, DOJ and NSA said Trump's lie was false March 20. Nunes admitted, that his red-hot information does not change the fact that Trump lied about Obama. Nunes proved again that he cannot be objective in reviewing Trump's Russian-connection and that he is serving as a Trump surrogate. Nunes presented un-vetted illegal classified information directly to one of the targets of the investigation, Trump. Nunes joined Trump in obstruction of justice. Nunes also illegally announced the existence of numerous FISA warrants against Trump associates, which in addition to the illegal announcement establishes that Trump associates are the targets of criminal investigations. Nunes and his co-Trump associates should seek lawyers. (the other news today is that Trump wanted to emulate Russia and roll tanks and rockets down Pennsylvania Avenue from The Capitol to The White House on Inauguration Day; was denied, lied about, by Trump et al but proven in Pentagon emails)

Nunes illegally leaked intelligence illegally leaked to him and then ran to report it to Trump breaking all standards for the Chair of the House Intelligence Committee BECAUSE he is scared. The information Nunes ran to Trump with involves legal recordings Trump's transition team for purposes of criminal investigation. Notably, Nunes was a lead player in Trump's transition team. And, Monday, the FBI revealed that those surrounding Trump are under criminal investigation. Nunes should be compelled to testify under oath under penalty of perjury and should be investigated for criminal conspiracy with Trump to derail a congressional investigation of Trump.

November 11, 2016, Nunes wrote on his web site, "Today I was honored to have been named to the executive committee of President-elect Donald Trump's transition team. In this role, I will advise President-elect Trump ..." Obviously, Nunes is still working for Trump and against the US. (this quote still exists today, March 22, 2017)

When all is said and done, while Nunes committed a crime and destroyed the House Intel investigation, the purpose of Nunes' running to Trump was a Trump strategy to deflect attention for the major news of the day, that Trump's campaign manager had a career promoting Putin and manipulating US politics for Putin. It gave the incompetent opportunity for Trump to say that he was vidicated, which of course is false.

Mar 24 udpdate: Nunes essentially pulled back his false bombshells, which illegally leaked classified information, saying he doesn't really know what he saw. Even more critical, he said he ran to tell Trump about the false bombshells because Trump was have bad news days and needed a lift.

Mar 22: (Wall Street Journal) If President Trump announces that North Korea launched a missile that landed within 100 miles of Hawaii, would most Americans believe him? We’re not sure, which speaks to the damage that Mr. Trump is doing to his Presidency with his seemingly endless stream of exaggerations, evidence-free accusations, implausible denials and other falsehoods. (Re Trump's false claim that Obama wiretapped him) the President clings to his assertion like a drunk to an empty gin bottle, rolling out his press spokesman to make more dubious claims."

Mar 22: Trump's collaboration with Russia against Americans is appealing to Republicans in Congress. No wonder they care so little about Russia's Info War against America (interestingly, a major outlet for Russian fake news and for conversation with Trump is infowars.com). A group of congressional Republicans is teaming up with Russia-backed politicians in Eastern Europe with the shared goal of stopping a common enemy: billionaire financier George Soros. The congressional Russian supporters are led by Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey and Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. Russia’s state-controlled English-language websites rushed to trumpet Lee’s and Smith’s letters attacking Soros' campaign against Russia, holding them up as proof that the U.S. is guilty of exactly what it accuses Russia of doing in 2016 — interfering in another country’s politics.

Treason: Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States. (18 U.S. Code § 2381 - Treason) There is no closer adherent to Russia and giving Russia aid and comfort than Trump. Legislators should consider the prudence of joining 'photo ops' with and providing media interviews for Trump

Perspective: After a US spy sold nuclear bomb secrets to Russia in the late 1940s, Russia was able to test its first nuclear weapon September, 1949. The Cold War began. Russia achieved its dream to equal the US in global power, of sorts. Fast forward to 2016. After decades of decline and breakup of the 'mighty' Soviet Union, Russia again dreamed to begin a war to equal if not surpass the US in global power. Andrey Krutskikh, senior-level adviser Vladimir Putin, announced at a speech at a Russia security conference, "You think we are living in 2016. No, we are living in 1948. And do you know why? Because in 1949, the Soviet Union had its first atomic bomb test. And if until that moment, the Soviet Union was trying to reach agreement with [President Harry] Truman to ban nuclear weapons, and the Americans were not taking us seriously, in 1949 everything changed and they started talking to us on an equal footing. I’m warning you: We are at the verge of having ‘something’ in the information arena, which will allow us to talk to the Americans as equals. A new doctrine for Russia's aggression was born, using the information space as a domain of war to leap past the US. However, it needed another US asset. They chose longtime business partner and sociopath, Donald Trump. They assured though collusion that Trump would become US President. After all, Trump believed in Russian dreams for decades: weaken NATO, US national intelligence agencies and US military, and US government institutions by blaming them for the world's problems. Trump was easily convinced to turn on his friend Hillary Clinton and turn sufficient numbers of voters and Republicans in Congress toward Russia to win the White House. And for desert, Trump would lift economic sanctions against Russia and permit Russia's takeover of neighboring countries (eg, Crimea) and military expansion into the Middle East (eg, Syria). Russia and Trump, together, are addicted to 'winning' at the expense of US citizens. Russia is now also deploying its new tools for presidential elections in France and Germany. Notice how despicable Trump treated Angela Merkel March 27 in Washington, DC? Putin is very proud. His information war against the US in particular was a fantastic success. While Russia lost the Cold War, so far Russia is winning the Information War. Will FBI- and Congressional- investigations be enough to save the United States? Will Trump voters realize what Trump has done?

Mar 21: A Russian lawyer who was a witness in a US federal court case connected to the largest money-laundering scheme in Russian history was hospitalized after plunging four stories on Tuesday in Moscow. The case was led my Preet Brahaha, who Trump fired to protect Russia and to derail Brahaha's criminal investigation of Trump. Update, Mar 23: A former Russian lawmaker was shot and killed in Kiev in a contract hit ordered by Russia. Trump admires Putin for what he does against his opponents, and perhaps will try Putin-style 'leadership'.

Mar 20: After this dramatic day of discussion of treasonous Trump-Russia collusion under criminal investigation by the FBI (includes NATA degradation for Russia by Trump), Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will cancel his NATO meeting in Brussels with 28 NATO allies but go to Russia in April. (In 2013, Putin granted Tillerson Russia's 'Order of Friendship' award after signing deals with the state-owned Russian oil company Rosneft, whose chief, Igor Sechin, a very close associate with Putin. Perhaps, for even more collusion or to finalize a financial deal between Trump and Russia.)

Mar 20: New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman hired a prosecutor who served under Trump-fired U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara to focus on public corruption cases, including those involving the Trump administration, according to a Wall Street Journal report. These are separate investigations and possible prosecutions from FBI's.

Mar 20: Trump's and his surrogates in the White House and Congress are deflecting and attacking a criminal investigation of Trump treason, collusion between Trump and Russia against the US, that began July 2016 (eg, causing FBI/DOJ/NSA/CIA to investigate Trump's false charges of felony against Obama and false charges of espionage by the UK). This is OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE by Trump far worse than Watergate. This is an attack against the heart of America. Sometimes the line between acting guilty and being guilty is so thin it doesn't exist. Trump's litany of lies are obstructions of justice. 9 (NOTE: The FBI initiates criminal investigations only after a high threshold of evidence exists. So far, FBI's criminal investigation of Trump's treason has lasted 8 months.)

Mar 20: Apparently believing that Trump committed TREASON, Republican House Representatives today deflected the FBI/DOJ/NSA testimony today to alleged criminal acts of the media to publish information about Trump's treason. Notably, Watergate media investigator Carl Bernstein responded, "I can state w/confidence that many intel members now decrying 'leaks' of classified info have themselves 'leaked' classified info knowingly."

Everything Trump and his congressional surrogates are saying about this matter indicates consciousness of Trump's guilt.

Mar 20: Trump has 37% public support and has been under criminal investigation (treason) since July 2016.

Mar 20: Lying to hide Trump's Russian connections to gain the presidency, now being investigated for crimes by the FBI, today Trump is running away from his senior advisors, most notably Paul Manafort – Trump's campaign manager who engineered Trump's Republican nomination while collaborating with Russia (Manafort is wanted by the Ukraine government for suspected crimes). (Manafort received a $10 million/yr 2005-2009contract to promote and manipulate US politics for Putin. After this, he did the same for Russia's oligarch in Ukraine.) From the White House today, Trump ordered his press secretary to claim that Paul Manafort had little to do with Trump's campaign...."Obviously there has been some discussion of Paul Manafort, who played a very limited role for a very limited amount of time." What!!! The press secretary also said that Michael Flynn was only a volunteer for the campaign. What!!! Flynn was the campaign co-chair. Trump is also lying when saying during the hearing that the FBI and NSA testified today that Russia "did not influence the electoral process." Not only did they not say that but both concluded publicly January 2017 that Russia did influence the electoral process and testified today that that they still have that conclusion, thus fact checking Trump's lies in real time. Trump will attack anyone except Putin and Russia.

Mar 20: About Trump's many (false) charges that Obama wiretapped Trump, the FBI Director stated that the FBI and DOJ have NO information supporting Trump's charges. The NSA Director agreed. Clearly, Trump lied. No individual and no President could legally order a wiretap of any kind according to the FBI Director at the Congressional hearing today. The NSA Director agreed and says Trump's charges are nonsense and ridiculous. The NSA Director also testified that Trump's claim that the United Kingdom spied on Trump for Obama was false. On the other hand, the FBI Director testified that there is evidence that the Democrat headquarters, like in Watergate, were broken into, this time by Russia and often utilized by Trump in his campaign rallies (Russia also broke into Hillary Clinton's campaign chair's computer. Trump encouraged Russia to hack Clinton campaign computers even more).

Today, Trump re-affirmed his (false) charge against Obama, now also an obstruction of justice in FBI's criminal investigation of Trump.

Mar 20: For the first time, the US FBI and DOJ officially confirmed during a public congressional hearing criminal investigations into possible collusions between Trump and Russia to win the election for President of the United States. FBI/DOJ/NSA called this effort an attack on the US. There is a long list of contacts between Trump advisors and Russian spies during critical moments of KNOWN interference by Russia in the presidential election FOR Trump, and Trump openly and repeatedly encouraged Russia's asset Wikileaks in releasing stolen documents from Hillary Clinton's campaign. Millions of dollars and thousands of hours are being spent by Congress, FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA and others...Trump's response – it's all fake news. Trump continues to act guilty of numerous crimes and violations of his oath to defend the US Constitution in perpetrating the largest fraud and treason against the US in history.

The FBI began its investigation July 2016 of coordination between Trump and Russia for Trump's campaign. The FBI Director added that the FBI is early in its investigation. Notably, the FBI is not investigating Trump relationships with ANY country other than Russia.

Mar 20: Fearful, Trump installed spies in government agencies to tell him 'naughty' things Cabinet Secretaries are doing. Trump's appointees serve as observers and White House enforcers.

Mar 19: It was Trump who said, "The world is laughing at us. They’re laughing at the stupidity of our president." Stupid is as stupid does.

Mar 19: It is foolish to conclude that illicit Russian efforts did not induce Trump's election. Trump, his surrogates and the media spent most of the campaign on Russia's fake news and Democrat computer hacking. Trump's rallies led by Russian asset Michael Flynn secured voters fueled by trumped-up hate for government institutions, national security agencies and experts almost entirely opposed to Trump but no match for Russia's pursuit of Trump to weaken NATO and US ties to UK and Germany, chastise US military and national security agencies, and divide and demoralize American citizens. Trump won. Russia won. America lost.

Mar 19: Trump remains broke. While Trump promised to forgo his presidential salary and turn over foreign profits to his hotels/restaurants/golf courses, this will not occur, if ever, until 2018. Forbes calculated that his worth declined $1 billion the past year. However, Trump is not worried. He is accepting vast donations from foreign governments, though unconstitutional. He is starting new businesses. And, he looks forward to redirecting billions of taxpayer funds to himself.

Mar 19: Still today, Trump's web site says, "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on." Subsequent to this, Trump got Rudy Giulanni to craft a 'legal' way to say it and then watered it down hoping the courts will forget his ongoing intention. March 15, Trump made it clear, again, "Let's go back to the first order and go all the way, which is what I wanted to do in the first place." (when he announced a complete and total Muslim ban) Beyond any doubt, Trump wants a Muslim ban.

Mar 18: In ancient Egypt, there was the symbol of the ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. Nerve-addled octopuses sometimes consume their own arms. But we’ve never watched a president so hungrily devour his own presidency. Soon, there won’t be anything left except the sound of people snickering. Consumed by his paranoia about the deep state, Donald Trump has disappeared into the fog of his own conspiracy theories. As he rages in the storm, Lear-like, howling about poisonous fake news, he is spewing poisonous fake news. He trusts his beliefs more than facts. So many secrets, so many plots, so many shards of gossip swirl in his head, there seems to be no room for reality. Everyone is tiptoeing around the mad king in his gilded, sparse court. His lieges make fools of themselves trying to justify or interpret his transcendentally nutty tweets and willfully ignorant comments. (Maureen Dowd)

Mar 18: Worried its asset/mole cannot stymy a bill in the US Congress to consider violations of the Foreign Agents Registration Act committed by Russian TV (Michael Flynn one of its assets), Russia found a new way to help Trump – investigate US news organizations. Trump hates them, and so does Russia. Among the U.S. media organizations that could be investigated by Russia's Duma are CNN, Voice of America and Radio Liberty. Russia does not want to lose their man in the White House. Russia will also use its friends in the US Congress to kill the bill.

Russia is using Trump to break the United States, feeding Trump's discredits of US institutions, national security agencies, military, NATO, US allies (eg, blaming the UK for an act of war against the US for espionage against the US and threatening Germany with nuclear war and lack of US military protection should Russia attack) the media, the Constitution and 300 years of American history. Trump is even fueling the conspiracy theory rampant with Trump's white supremacist nationalist supporters that the US government is not being run by the executive, legislative and judicial branches of government but instead by a 'deep state', a powerful government within the government controlling our lives comprised of rogue agents inside US national security agencies. To Russia's delight, Trump is leading the US into fascism just like Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin before him. It is stunning to watch Congress and even the media enable Trump, unable to fathom Russia's role to tilt the election to Trump even though Trump bragged about it during the campaign (eg, encouraging Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's computer and applauding Russia's agent to tilt the election, Wikileaks).

Bragged about in 2008, Russian money keeps flowing into Trump. Over $100 million has flowed into Trump real estate, mostly in south Florida in 7 Trump towers near Trump's southern White House, Mar-a-Lago, over the past year.

Mar 17: If Trump cannot protect his homes, how can he protect the country? For 17 minutes, an illegal intruder could not be found on the White House grounds. He even tried getting in the door. Also, a laptop was stolen from a secret service agent; it had detailed floor plans to Trump Tower and about evacuation pathways, and more.

Mar 17: Another illicit reason why Trump fired US Attorney Preet Brahaha was reported. He was investigating HHS Secretary Tom Price for illegal financial investments.

Mar 17: During a globally broadcast news conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Trump trashed the US as the loser in international trade AND again charged President Obama with wiretapping Trump. No air quotes. No evidence for Trump's false claims. Reinforcing his 4 tweets claiming that President Obama was sick and a felon, Trump also endorsed Fox News' reports that the United Kingdom committed espionage in the US by wiretapping Trump at President Obama's illegal order, thus negating the White House apology to the UK Prime Minister and promise to not says such a thing again.

Fox News responded to Trump blaming Fox News during the press conference. "Fox News knows of no evidence of any kind, that the now president of the United States was surveilled at any time, in any way, full stop." (the Fox News commenter initiating the false claim, Andrew Nepolitano, was fired by Fox News Mar 20; Trump quoted the lie last Friday in his press conference with Angela Merkel, calling Nepolitano a brilliant legal mind...for lying, for which he was fired)

Trump was accusing the UK of an act of war against the US.

Merkel became the obvious leader of the free world. Trump might as well be wearing a clown suit.

Mar 17: Selling his futile budget, Trump went off the deep end again, citing a news story saying, "Some people are complaining that the budget proffered by the Trump administration, despite its wonderful, macho-sounding name, is too vague and makes all sorts of cuts to needed programs in favor of increasing military spending by leaps and bounds. These people are wimps. America has been soft and weak for too long. BUT HOW WILL I SURVIVE ON THIS BUDGET? you may be wondering. I AM A HUMAN CHILD, NOT A COSTLY FIGHTER JET. You may not survive, but that is because you are SOFT and WEAK, something this budget is designed to eliminate. Affordable housing is a luxury and we are going to get rid of it. Donald Trump does not live in affordable housing and neither should you. AMERICA WILL BE STRONGER THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN! Anyone who survives will be a gun covered in the fur of a rare mammal, capable of fighting disease with a single muscular flex. Clean rivers and breathable air are making us SOFT and letting the Chinese and the Russians get the jump on us. We must go back to the America that was great, when the air was full of coal and danger and the way you could tell if the air was breathable was by carrying a canary around with you at all times, perched on your leathery, coal-dust-covered finger. Furthermore, we will cut funding to Superfund cleanup in the EPA because the only thing manlier than clean water is DIRTY water. There will be no LABOR in the future. Labor is what women do, I think. All fetuses will burst out of wombs brandishing an Uzi on each arm. (Also, we will cut the funding to the people who would have explained that this is not how birth or labor works.) It will be great." No wonder Trump's budget is DOA.

Mar 16: Trump blamed James Bond for the fictional Obama wiretapping of Trump Tower. The real British national intelligence agency confirmed Trump is lying again, as did Congressional leaders and FBI. (Sean Spicer, the US version of 'Bagdad Bob' for so consistently denying the obvious and creating copious amounts of fake news, announced that England's GCHQ wiretapped Trump at Obama's order. After Trump's charge against America's biggest ally for devious espionage against the US, the UK government responded, "nonsense, utterly ridiculous and should be ignored." Good words to go by regarding Trump. Trump was accusing the UK of an act of war against the US.)

The sooner Trump is hospitalized for his psychotic hallucinations the better everyone will be.

Mar 16: Sebastian Gorka is Trump's top terrorism advisor. Could be because he anti-Muslim as well as a sworn member of Vitézi Rend, an anti-Semitic, quasi-Nazi Hungarian nationalist group.

Mar 16: Last month, a Russian spy ship was off the coast of Delaware and New York. Today, it is 50 miles away from a Navy base in Georgia after being docked in Cuba for 5 days. Trump's friends stay close.

Trump Muslim Ban. March 15, Trump was emphatic, "Let's go back to the first order and go all the way, which is what I wanted to do in the first place." (when he announced a complete and total Muslim ban) Beyond any doubt, Trump wants a Muslim ban.

Mar 16: House Speaker Paul Ryan said, no Trump wiretap evidence existed. The Senate Intelligence Committee formally concluded that Trump's claim that Obama was a "sick" felon for illegally wiretapping Trump Tower is FALSE, adding that there is no evidence for any form of surveillance regardless of what Trump claims (yesterday, Trump claimed his source was the NY Times...problem is however that the NY Times never said Obama surveilled Trump AND Trump says NY Times and other media – 8 fast talking minutes of media quotes – he relies on are "fake news") Trump is delusional. White House again in panic mode.

Mar 16: Another day, another revelation of Trump contacts with Russia. Trump's campaign co-Chairman, Michael Flynn, illegally received at least $52,650 from Russian firms and the Kremlin TV station (previously, Flynn denied any Russian payments). And, the investigations are just beginning.

Mar 16: Trump published his first budget. It calls for ruining the environment, State Department, counter-terrorism effort in New York city, food safety, funding for arts and humanities, programs helping the poor and the life of Trump's rural voters. The largest decrease in federal programs and assault on national security since World War II.

Mar 15: Unable to 'repeal and replace' ObamaCare, Trump is doing everything possible to sabotage ObamaCare, trying to produce its death spiral. Trump is violating the law again.

Mar 15: Trump faced 2 big setbacks today. First, 4 Russian operatives were indicted by the DOJ for computer hacking, the crime Trump wants Russia to do against America. Second, Trump's second Muslim ban, set to go into effect at midnight tonight, was halted by a federal judge. From the judge, "The illogic of the Government’s contentions is palpable. The notion that one can demonstrate animus toward any group of people only by targeting all of them at once is fundamentally flawed. Equally flawed is the notion that the Executive Order cannot be found to have targeted Islam because it applies to all individuals in the six referenced countries. It is undisputed, using the primary source upon which the Government itself relies, that these six countries have overwhelmingly Muslim populations that range from 90.7 percent to 99.8 percent. It would therefore be no paradigmatic leap to conclude that targeting these countries likewise targets Islam. Certainly, it would be inappropriate to conclude, as the Government does, that it does not. The Court turns to whether Plaintiffs sufficiently establish a likelihood of success on the merits of their Count I claim that the Executive Order violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment. Because a reasonable, objective observer—enlightened by the specific historical context, contemporaneous public statements, and specific sequence of events leading to its issuance—would conclude that the Executive Order was issued with a purpose to disfavor a particular religion, in spite of its stated, religiously-neutral purpose, the Court finds that Plaintiffs, and Dr. Elshikh in particular, are likely to succeed on the merits of their Establishment Clause claim." We've known for a few weeks that national security assessments concluded that there is no basis for Trump's Muslim ban(s).

Update. A couple hours after the federal court ruling, Trump fired up an audience in Nashville, calling the federal courts weak and for the break up of the 9th Federal Circuit. Trump also re-affirmed his intent to (unconstitutionally) ban Muslims from the US, insisting that his new Muslim ban was "a watered down version of the first order," referring to his first Muslim ban struck down by several federal courts across the US. "Let's go back to the first order and go all the way, which is what I wanted to do in the first place." Trump added (when he announced a complete and total Muslim ban). Trump is mighty proud of his bigotry and unconstitutional intentions for the US.

A second federal judge, in Maryland, also ruled against Trump's new Muslim ban. "It does not identify any instances of individuals who came from Iran, Libya, Sudan, Syria, or Yemen engaging in terrorist activity in the United States. On December 7, 2015, then-presidential candidate Donald Trump posted a "Statement on Preventing Muslim Immigration" on his campaign website in which he "call [ed) for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our representatives can figure out what is going on." In a March 9, 2016 interview with CNN, Trump professed his belief that "Islam hates us," and that the United States had "allowed this propaganda to spread all through the country that [Islam) is a religion of peace." Then, in a March 22, 2016 Fox Business interview, Trump reiterated his call for a ban on Muslim immigration, explaining that his call for the ban had gotten "tremendous support" and that "we're having problems with the Muslims, and we're having problems with Muslims coming into the country." These statements, which include explicit, direct statements of President Trump's animus towards Muslims and intention to impose a ban on Muslims entering the United States, present a convincing case that the First Executive Order was issued to accomplish, as nearly as possible, . President Trump's promised Muslim ban. Defendants do not directly contest that this record of public statements reveals a religious motivation for the travel ban. In this highly unique case, the record provides strong indications that the national security purpose is not the primary purpose for the travel ban. The Court finds that the Plaintiffs have established that they are likely to succeed on the merits of their Establishment Clause claim."

Mar 15: Unable to function as President, Trump is campaigning today for the 2020 election. The previous 2 Presidents waited until their third year. Trump waited until the end of his second month in office.

Mar 15: Now that the FBI, DOJ, Republican and Democrat Congressional leaders and White House staffers have concluded that Trump lied in claiming that Obama wiretapped him in Trump Tower, Trump claimed today, again, that Obama wiretapped him in Trump Tower.

Mar 15: A culture of paranoia is consuming the Trump administration, with staffers increasingly preoccupied with perceived enemies — inside their own government. Aides are going to great lengths to protect themselves. They’re turning off work-issued smart phones and putting them in drawers when they arrive home from work out of fear that they could be used to eavesdrop. They’re staying mum in meetings out of concern that their comments could be leaked to the press by foes. Many are using encrypted apps that automatically delete messages once they’ve been read, or are leaving their personal cellphones at home in case their bosses initiate phone checks of the sort that press secretary Sean Spicer deployed last month to try to identify leakers on his team. (Politico)

Trump's delusions poison his staff and America.

Mar 15: Trump threatened jail time for Snoop Dog for a music video.

Mar 15: To distract from a Senate Hearing today into Trump's Russian connections and lie that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, from 3 federal court hearings today about his second Muslim ban and from the meltdown of TrumpCare, Trump released his 2005 tax return, 2 pages out of hundreds. These 2 pages are the least informative pages of a tax return. Unlike his usual response lies, within 30 minutes of NBC seeking confirmation of the 2 pages, Trump confirmed their authenticity, although calling them fake news today. The 2 pages did not reveal the sources of his income or identities of his creditors.

Mar 14: Trump wanted FoxNews' Marcia Crawley to be #2 in National Security Council under Michael Flynn (anti-American, pro-Russian, illegal foreign agent). She withdrew after realization of her lifetime of plagiarism, most notably her book and her Ph.D. thesis. March 10, Crawley filed to be a foreign agent for Ukraine's second richest oligarch, Victor PInchuk. From Sputnik News, "In December, Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk wrote an explosive op-ed in The Wall Street Journal, laying out how Ukraine can end its conflict with Russia. Pinchuk's plan is simple: Kiev must close the book on Crimea, proceed with elections in Donbass, and forget NATO. Unfortunately, elites in Kiev see his ideas as nothing less than treasonous." In 2015, Pinchuk paid Trump $150,000 for a speech. Both are pro-Russia and anti-NATO. Trump said in the 2-minute video speech, for which he was paid $150,000 to attack the US and promote Russia, that "our President is not strong. Putin does not respect our President. It is a big problem. The United States itself has a problem." Why doesn't Trump just move to Russia?

Trump. Nothing but turmoil. Trump at war with everyone but Russia.

Mar 14: Trump corruption knows no bounds. Trump owes a German bank, Deutsche Bank, hundreds of millions of dollars. Deutsche Bank is Trump's largest lender. Seemingly separately, the US fined Deutsche Bank December 2016 $7.2 billion for illegal mortgages that contributed to the 2008 crash. In January, the state of New York fined Deutsche Bank $630 million for an illegal stock market scheme laundering $10 billion of Russian Rubles for Russian oligarchs behind Putin siphoning public money for themselves. However, under US Attorney Preet Brahaha, there is/was a federal pursuit, and a federal fine for this Russian money laundering could be in the billions. But, Mar 11, Trump fired Brahaha to derail an array of investigations into Trump Russian connections for his election and otherwise, including Trump's bank Deutsche Bank. (The Chairman of Deutsche Bank was fired after $20 billion in fines and moved to Turkey to become Chairman of the Russia-controlled Cyprus Bank. One of its lead share holders is the Russian oligarch, Dmitry Rybolovlev, who paid Trump $95 million for a Palm Beach house that Trump paid $44 million for, making Trump $51 million. The oligarch tore the 62,000 square feet mansion down recently. One American is a major share holder is now Trump's Commerce Secretary, Wilber Ross, who was also Vice Chairman under a Chairman who was deeply involved with money laundering with Russia (the bank's other Vice Chairman was selected by Vladimir Putin; Ross and his team invested more than $1 billion in the troubled bank). In another fantastic deal enabled by Trump in the White House, Trump's son-in-law and family will make $400 million from the sale by a Kushner family skyscraper on 5th Avenue (666 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan) for $2.85 billion to a Chinese company connected with the Chinese government. The Kushner family will be relieved of $50 million in mortgage for the building. Obviously, Trump had financial and corruption reasons for firing US Attorney Preet Brahaha.)

Perspective: Trump has yet to say anything negative about Russia or its agent Wikileaks, keeping Putin happy with his presidential bet.

Mar 13: Trump now saying 'wiretap' does not mean 'wiretap'. Says not to take him literally. But, he wants Congress to spend millions to investigate.

Mar 13: Trump admitted he has no proof for his claim that Obama wiretapped him during the campaign, asking for more time from Congress for him to find or manufacture proof.

Mar 13: TrumpCare, a death panel, will remove 24 million Americans from health insurance (14 million in the next year alone), ruin Medicaid, increase insurance costs dramatically for those over 50 years old and transfer $600 billion from the poor/middle class to those making over $250,000/year. Cost of insurance for young people will go down, largely because they will drop insurance altogether, and when they do increase insurance costs for everyone else. Property taxes will also rise because of greater assessments to cover uninsured individuals requiring hospital care from accident and serious disease. The White House's own assessment of TrumpCare is even bleaker, predicting 26 million will lose health insurance.

With ObamaCare, a 64-year-old earning $26,500/year would have to pay $1,700 for insurance, covering 87 percent of their medical costs. Under TrumpCare, that same person would pay $14,600, covering only 65 percent of their medical costs. The purpose of increasing the cost of healthcare with TrumpCare: to transfer hundreds of billions of dollars to the wealthy and insurance companies for tax cuts and profits.

Mar 13: More Trump absurd dellusions. Now blaming TV sets and microwave ovens turning into cameras for his bogus wiretapping charge against Obama. Trump says nothing believable to anyone but the gullible.

Mar 12: Rep. Steve King represents Trump to a T. Unless he is a native
American (Indian) or Alaskan, King comes from an immigrant family as Trump did. There were babies of immigrants. Nevertheless, today King echoed Trump via tweet, "We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies. I'd like to see an America that's just so homogenous that we look a lot the same." With Trump, white supremacy rules. KKK leader David Duke 'liked' King's tweet. As for facts, America was built on the immigrants Trump and King despise. Even American Indians and Alaskans were ultimately themselves immigrants. Immigrants are what makes America great. Not Trump. Not King. Not white supremacy. Diversity – in people and ideas – is strength.

Mar 11: Regarding Trump's foreign spies in the White House, Richard Painter, President George W. Bush's ethics lawyer, said, "It makes no sense to run a government this way. This is a completely chaotic situation, and then Gen. Flynn lied about his contacts with the Russians, lied to the vice president, and we’ve had the attorney general in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee say he did not contact the Russians when he had contacts with the Russians. What kind of country is it that we have foreign agents infiltrate the government. People are not being honest about their foreign contacts, and talk about this ‘deep state theory’ as if there are somehow Obama moles in the government under the Trump administration. It’s the KGB agents running around the West Wing or the national security council."

Flynn paid FBI agent Brian McCauley $28,000 October-December 2016. Related or not, McCauley is credited for leaking FBI (non) investigation tidbits against Hillary Clinton, which combined with Trump's Russia connection to tilt the election to Trump.

Notable: Trump and friends are defending against the evidence of Trump's Russian conspiracy to degrade the US by claiming that the CIA planted the evidence (Trump's 'deep state theory' that the core of the US government is a conspiracy against Trump). Putin keeps on grinning at his 'huge' success for US voters to distrust the US government, CIA, NATO, western democracy and Hillary Clinton...Trump calls them all weak and run by Nazis, Russia's enemy of the 1940s.

Mar 10: Trump's illegal Muslim ban snared Mohammad Ali's son a second time in a month at the airport at Reagan National Airport in DC on his way home to Florida, detaining him again for harassment. Trump, 'the smallest', hates Muslims even when they are US citizens by birth and son of 'the greatest'.

Mar 10: Trump abruptly and without notice requested all US Attorneys to resign. Normally, this would not be an issue. However, other than its abrupt nature, Trump's request happens amidst FBI investigations of Trump and several lawsuits against his new Muslim ban. Notably, included in the Trump's request is Preet Bharara, US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, the office leading the US Attorney investigation of Trump's Russian connections against the US using Trump Tower in Manhattan. Last November, Trump summoned Bharara to Trump Tower for Trump to ask him to stay in his job (as did Attorney General appointee Jeff Sessions), and Bharara accepted. What changed? Investigation of Trump's treason by a US Attorney with a strong record of holding powerful Wall Street executives and politicians responsible for their criminal acts. A shameful attempt to obstruct justice by Trump.

Update Mar 11: Bharara refused to resign. Accordingly, Trump fired him hoping to silence him and likely other US Attorneys unwilling to ignore Trump's Russian connections. Undoubtedly, Trump will dramatically shift prosecution away from criminal targets linked to Trump.

Mar 10: Trump's lying is a catchy disease. VP Mike Pence blatantly lied today, claiming that today was the first he ever heard that Michael Flynn was a foreign agent. Problem is: 1. It was published by numerous media outlets last fall, 2. He was informed by Flynn's lawyers last fall as well. It should have also been obvious from Flynn's writing an article on election day favoring Turkey against a US resident in Pennsylvania and Flynn's Russian calls to 'lock her up' referring to Putin nemesis, Hillary Clinton.

Mar 10: Trump says job numbers and unemployment rate were all phony until this month, insisting that the unemployment rate went from 40+% to 4.7% in one month. Only under Trump will the numbers/rates be real and not fake like they have been for decades, until of course the numbers go down. Even Press Secretary Sean Spicer laughed at the stupidity of what Trump had just ordered him to say at the White House briefing today.

Mar 9: Big day for Trump. Sued by 4 states over Trump's Muslim ban, several DC restaurant owners over unfair business practices and the ACLU over ethics violations. And, revealing his lie to prevent his appointees from becoming lobbyists, Michael Flynn registered as a lobbyist. Turns out, around the election day, several payments September-November, Flynn was paid $530,000 to be a foreign agent for Turkey on top of his clandestine agent status for Russia (Flynn likely knew of Trump's much larger business relationships with Turkey's pro-Russian government). Flynn hired several former FBI officials and a retired admiral. Pay for play Trump style, begging the question, why was a foreign agent running the Trump campaign as Co-Chair, calling for Hillary Clinton to be imprisoned on behalf of Trump and named National Security Advisor by Trump? Because he is a traitor. Another Trump conduit with Russia, Roger Stone, was again on state-run Russian television. Eric Trump bragged that the Trump business brand is the hottest it has ever been thanks to dad in the White House. Illegal, but so what. Russia is happy.

Observation: Speaker Paul Ryan does not understand insurance but hopes no one is noticing. The fatal flaw of ObamaCare to Ryan, claimed to be fixed by TrumpCare, is that insurance is insurance, ie those without the need help fund those with a need. Men should not pay for insurance for women (eg cancerous uterus) and women should not pay for insurance for men (eg cancderous prostate). By extension, perhaps adults should not pay for children's insurance, or vice versa. Ryan sells this as some sort of evil conspiracy. However, this is and has always been true for ALL insurance, health, car, life, social security/medicare etc and is the foundation of the insurance industry....claims paid by insurance companies for doctors, hospitals, drugs, car accidents, death and social security/medicare benefits are paid in part by those not incurring costs for these services. No conspiracy, just common sense and enabler of the insurance industry and its jobs.

Mar 9: Trump surrogate Nigel Farage visited Trump's other surrogate and Russian agent, Julian Assange (creator of Wikileaks, loved by Trump). Asked about what he spoke about, Farage said he could not remember, the same answer Trump surrogates have regarding their meetings with Russia. Passing a thank-you note for Trump? Notably, most Russian degradations of the US via Wikileaks the past 2 years has been associated with a visit from the Trump campaign, perhaps all once we know the rest of the Trump campaign meetings with Russia. Wikileaks has joined the Trump campaign against the CIA, State Department and NATO. Russia's investment in Trump has payed off bigtime, vastly more efficient that military war machines.

Mar 9: After claiming that John Huntsman was weak and sold the US to China, Trump named him US Ambassador to Russia.

Mar 8: Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Congress, "We believe that the Russians have deployed a land-based cruise missile that violates the spirit and intent of the Intermediate Nuclear Forces Treaty. The system itself presents a risk to most of our facilities in Europe. And we believe that the Russians have deliberately deployed it in order to pose a threat to NATO and to facilities within the NATO area of responsibility." Trump doing nothing against his benefactor, Russia. Both he and Russia want a weakened NATO, CIA and State Department. Russia's investment in Trump has paid off bigtime.

Mar 8: SHANGHAI — China approved 38 new Trump trademarks, previously denied for a decade, for Trump to develop a host of branded businesses from hotels to insurance to bodyguard and escort services. China's gift to Trump, quid pro quo in the making. Just another violation of the US Consitution being openly perpetrated by Trump.

Mar 7: Often during the campaign, Trump bragged that he loved Wikileaks, Russia's weapon of choice against the US and for Trump. Both Trump and Russia despise US national security agencies, both equally at war against them. Today, Wikileaks released thousands of secret documents stolen from US national security agencies. Russia has hacked the CIA, NSA, White House, State Department, Dept. of Defense, the Democrat National Committee and hundreds/thousands of others EXCEPT Hillary Clinton's 'private email server', the safest computer on earth. Trump urged Russia to hack it, but Russia could not. Trump is trading US national security for personal profit.

Mar 7: Now that Russia engineered a crybaby, fool and liar for US President, here's what state-run media in Russia is saying now. "Sessions Scandal: ‘U.S Headed to Constitutional Crisis." "Immigrants See American Dream Fade in Wake of Surge in Hate Crimes." "America is in the grips of hatred." "Are Trump’s policies dividing America more than ever?" "Trump Draws Noticeably Smaller Inauguration Crowd Than Predecessor." “If you recall how they were applauding Trump, I think 95 times they stood up,” said Edward Lozansky, president of the American University in Moscow. “Even during the Brezhnev time I don't recall that the delegates to the party congress stood up and gave standing ovations 95 times.” With Trump, Russia wins, US loses.

Mar 7: TrumpCare arrived. Trump officially endorsed the six-years-in-the-making House plan released today to 'repeal and replace ObamaCare'. The plan retains the major benefits of Obamacare to cover pre-existing illnesses and retain children until age 26 on their parent's health insurance. On the other hand, the plan gives tax breaks to the wealthy, increases costs and drops coverage to the poor, dramatically reduces the number of Americans with health insurance and increases profits for insurance companies. No transparency in pricing, no inter-state insurance company purchases, no control of skyrocketing healthcare prices. The full cost of the plan has been developed and thus cannot be considered seriously until its cost to the federal government is calculated. The Congressional Joint Committee on Taxation estimated today that the plan would result in $600 billion of lost federal revenue (including $117 billion in tax cuts for the very rich, giving them $250,000/year). The S&P Global Market Intelligence report also released today found that 2-4 million enrolled in ObamaCare individual markets could lose coverage, in addition to 4-6 million covered through Medicaid. Costs for those aged 50-64 Numerous will increase $5,000-$10,000 for less coverage. Republican legislators, Club for Growth, Heritage Foundation, Koch brothers, AARP, American Medical Association, American Nurses Association and the American Hospital Association are against TrumpCare.

Mar 7: Trump's Tuesday tweet lie. "122 vicious prisoners, released by the Obama Administration from Gitmo, have returned to the battlefield. Just another terrible decision!" However, 113 of those prisoners were released by President George Bush. Thus, President Obama released 9, not 122. More than a million employees under the President and all Trump can do is make things up.

Mar 6: Trump, hiding from the scary Press, issued his second Muslim ban today. Unlike the Jan 27 version that Trump insisted could not have a waiting period or otherwise open the floodgates to bad dude Muslims rushing to the US to kill, today's version has a 10 day hold (since the Jan 27 Muslim ban, there has been no Muslim terrorism in the US other than Trump-inspired life and property threats and attacks against Muslims in the US...showing just who the terrorists actually are). Notably, Dept. of Homeland Security assessments coordinated with several federal agencies found that there is no rational basis for a Trump Muslim ban. Today's version is no less bigoted than the first but will inspire continued terrorism against Muslims in the US and by ISIS against Muslims elsewhere in the world.

Observation: Trump keeps spitting on America and trashing the Presidency and White House. He is defending Russia and attacking US national security. Concurrently, Trump is raking in millions of dollars of taxpayer funds paid to his businesses and sending his children on business trips around the world AND violating the US Constitution for moneys and favors from foreign governments. Since inauguration, Trump has spent 25% of his time at is Palm Beach mansion.

Mar 6: Trump says he disagrees with FBI Director Michael Comey, who said March 4 that Trump was not wiretapped. Trump staffers claim that Trump has secret intelliegence showing that the previous President wiretapped Trump in Trump Tower. We are in crisis. And today, if not delayed for a third week, Trump says he will publish a new Muslim ban.

Mar 5: Trump orders Congress to investigate nonexistent wiretaps. Co-conspirators in Trump's corruption, the Republican Intelligence Chairs say they will. Why doesn't Trump simply tell us his secret (fictional) basis for calling Obama a felon (reminiscent of Trump's calling Obama an illegal Muslim born in Africa for several years)....or order the best investigations possible, easily trumping wasteful Congressional investigations....from his own employees in FBI, CIA and NSA? Why? Because they know Trump's charges are dellusional. Alas, Trump is too weak to order his national security agencies to investigate his paranoid fiction.

Mar 4: With his investment to bolster Trump's delusions, Putin is winning the 60-year Russian war against the US, now unstable and the laughing stock of the world. Trump is weakening the US and damaging democracy, the same aims Russia has had for 60 years. Today, Trump proclaimed that President Obama wiretapped Trump in Trump Tower in Manhattan. Trump thinks this is how everyone is learning that Trump colluded with Russia to win the election. However, Obama said it did not happen. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said it did not happen. CIA Director Leon Panetta said it did not happen, "They are trying to obfuscate and trying to cover up." FBI Director Michael Comey said it did not happen and asked Russian-friendly Attorney General Jeff Sessions to say so. Sen. Lindsay Graham said, "I’m very worried that our president is suggesting the former president has done something illegal." Rep. Tom Cottons said, "I have seen no evidence." Sen. Ben Sasse said, "We are in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust, and the President's allegations today demand the thorough and dispassionate attention of serious patriots." Mr. Trump, it's not non-existent wiretaps that proves your Russian preferences, it's your behavior, public statements and non-stop denigrations of America. You are a traitor and degrading the lives of all Americans.

If there were wiretaps, this would mean that there was official determination that Trump was a traitor or criminal sufficient to convince a federal judge to permit wiretaps.

Perspective: Trump and his pricey surrogates are either the most forgetful 'experts' in history or colluding with Russia against the US.

Mar 3: "Vice President Mike Pence routinely used a private email account to conduct public business as governor of Indiana, at times discussing sensitive matters and homeland security issues." (Indianapolis Star)

Mar 3: New critical security assessment goes against Trump just as federal and appellate courts did last month. No wonder Trump keeps delaying his rewritten Muslim ban (the first was struck down by the courts as unconstitutional, Trump conceded it was). Dated March 1, 2017, the Dept. of Homeland Security published an 8-page assessment of its Office of Intelligence Analysis concluding that most foreign-born, U.S.-based violent extremists are not radicalized when they come to the U.S., but rather become radicalized after living in the U.S. for a number of years, and thus screening and vetting has limited impact (DHS's assessement was endorsed by the Dept. of State, Customs and Border Control, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, National Counterterrorism Center and US Citizenship and Immigration Services). This means that 'terrorists' are a product of their life in the US, on average after 13 years in the US, in the US and are not sent here to do harm with only rare exception. Nearly half were under 16 years old when they entered the US. It was assessed that their parents did not pose a violent risk. Thus, there is no reason for Trump's Muslim ban according to experts. Trump's bigotry is the basis for his Muslim ban, not evidence or sound public policy or national security or protecting America. (Last week, an analysis of the the Dept. of Homeland Security concluded that country of origin was now predictive of a terrorist threat, thus abolishing the alleged basis of Trump's Muslim ban. Again, the basis of Trump's Muslim ban is bigoty and skapegoating, not evidence or sound public policy.)

Perspective: Trump, and his very smart appointees who are trying to claim that they did not know what they said were lies, know that Trump's voters and Republican Congressional collaborators are stupid. More and more, Trump will be saying he didn't know about an avalanche of Russian contacts with his campaign, some in the building in which he lives. And, they will be believe him....until they realize they have been taken and the US has been handed to Russia by Trump. Hopefully that happens before the US loses even more from Trump's subversion of the US to get elected to destroy US governmental institutions for his insatiable greed.

Trump has assaulted every country on earth except one, Russia, for which he he has praise and with which substantial business interests. Trump has assaulted everyone in the US except racists and Islamophobes, for whom Trump barks against minorities, Islam, women, the military and national security agencies.

Mar 2: About 4:15 PM, AG Jeff Sessions held a news conference to tell us that he finally remembered his meetings with a Russian agent last year, now that he has been exposed and even though the subject matter has been high in the news for almost a year, and that he will amend his swown testimony from last month claiming that he did not speak with any Russian agent last summer that produced calls by Republicans in Congress for Sessions to either resign or recuse himself from DOJ/FBI investigations of Trump's contacts with Russian agents during the campaign. Until today, Sessions' lie to the Senate stood as the record. Sessions, after meeting with DOJ ethics attorneys, announced today that he will indeed recuse himself...."I have recused myself in the matters that deal with the Trump campaign. I have decided to recuse myself from any existing or future investigations of any matters related in any way to the campaigns for President of the United States." Clearly, Sessions' swing in answers about this matter compel further investigation, Congressional hearings AND appointment of an independant prosecutor. (Update: Sessions used campaign funds to travel to his vist with Russia's top spy in the US)

Another suprise. The White House disclosed today yet another previously denied meeting with Russian agents and fired NSC Director Michael Flynn and Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner. This meeting(s) occurred in Trump Tower in Manhattan. Of course, there were many other meetings between Trump's campaign and Russian agents over the last 2 years. Almost certainly, we will learn much more about Trump-Russia contacts previously denied by Trump and Russia. (April 6 update: Trump conceded that Steve Bannon was placed on NSC to balance dangers posed by Michael Flynn)

Yesterday, several European governments reported holding evidence of several meetings between Trump's campaign and Russian agents occurred in Europe.

Questions: Have illicit contacts between Trump and his surrogates with Russian agents ended? Just how much false news and financial support did Russia give Trump? Why do Trump's arguments so closely match those of Russia over Trump-Russia contacts: fake news manufactured by the media?

Notably, this critical information came from journalism, not the Dept. of Justice. And, in coordinated fashion, both Trump and Russia call the Trump-Russia relationship a witch hunt.

Late today, 2 more Trump staffers, J.D. Gordon and Carter Page, were revealed to meet with Russia's agent, this time at the Republican National Convention. Thus, we know that there were numerous contacts between Trump and Russia in the US and Europe during the campaign, likely thanking Russia's help in getting Trump elected. Undoubtedly, we will learn of many more Trump staffers negotiating illicitly with Russia against the US.

Mar 2: Trump's Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, lies about Russia too, under oath. Months of cover-up exposed. In his Senate confirmation hearing for AG, Sessions said, "I did not have communications with the Russians." In fact, Sessions met with the Russians twice in 2016, a violation of law and now perjury. How could anyone believe that Sessions will conduct a proper investigation of Trump's Russian connections? Clearly, a special prosecutor is also needed to investigate Sessions in addition to Trump. In the meantime, Sessions should resign. Some jail time might help them start telling the truth. Caught so red handed, top Republicans in Congress, still wanting him to interfere with investigations against Trump, are simply calling for Sessions to recuse himself. This is worse that Republican protections of Nixon.

About President's Bill Clinton's lie and sexual misconduct, Sessions said in 1999, "The chief law-enforcement officer of the land, whose oath of office calls on him to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, crossed the line and failed to defend and protect the law and, in fact, attacked the law and the rights of a fellow citizen. Under our Constitution, equal justice requires that he forfeit his office. For these reasons, I felt compelled to vote to convict and remove the President from office. It is crucial to our system of justice that we demand the truth. I fear that an acquittal of this President will weaken the legal system by providing an option for those who consider being less than truthful in court."

Also revealed today is that the Obama administration feared Trump cover-up of Trump's Russian connections during the campaign and distributed intelligence reports in various agencies in attempt to disable complete Trump cover-up.

Why will Trump and his officers NOT TELL THE TRUTH about Trump's Russian connections to alter the election and Trump's financial ties with Russia?

Notably, Russia is defending Sessions and Trump.

NOTE: Trump is abdicating the responsibilities of the Presidency. He blamed the military for his failed mission in Yemen. Currently, he is considering delegating critical missions to the military and taking himiself out of the loop of responsibility.

Mar 1: Last night, Trump delivered a speech without yelling. Uncharacteristically, and with different speech writers obvious, Trump turned down the volume on arrogance and megalomania. The speech sounded normal and had some lofty notes. Trump painted a picture of America becoming perfect very soon. We shall see. But, his speech departed from his policies and needs legislation which is far from passing and does not look at this time that upcoming legislation will improve anything but rather take America backward. We shall see. On the other hand, Trump still sees America in ruins, building on his theme of American carnage. Trump attacked immigrants even though immigrants created and built America. Trump still sees immigrants as criminals and freeloaders, demonizing immigrants but this time with a smile. Regardless, Trump seeks to purge the US of Hispanics. Trump still exagerates, eg claiming that 94 million Americans are out of work. This includes the retired senior citizens, the disabled, high school students and those who voluntarily stay home to be homemakers. Trump still claims terrorists all came from outside the US even though almost all were US citizens or permanent residents. Furthermore, Americans kill tens of thousands of Americans annually, conveniently ignored by Trump. Racism, bigotry, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia are on the rise because of Trump. Trump promised a replacement to Obamacare, although his replacement is Obamacare except that subsidies are replaced by tax credits mostly benefitting the wealthy. The critical feature of Obamacare, coverage for pre-existing illnesses, will stay. Government exchanges will remain. We shall see what gets through Congress. Every Republican plan so far has been to dramatically reduce insurance coverage. A bill proposed by Sen. Bernie Sanders to permit access to Canadian drug products would be a major benefit. Trump blamed the media, our intelligence agencies and the courts for eroding America. In a warming moment, Trump recognized the widdow of the Navy Seal killed in Trump's failed January 29 raid in Yemen, ignoring this soldier's father who refused to meet with Trump last week, calling on Trump to stop hiding behind his son's death and to properly investigate and failed mission. Trump closed saying that every problem can be fixed. We shall see if his Russian connections and Cabinet billionaires that created the economic collapse 10 years ago fix anything.

Russia announced that it enjoyed Trump's speech very much. Encouraged by its alteration of who became the US President, Russia is now trying to alter the elections in France and Germany.

News: While the federal courts struck down Trump's Muslim ban last month, Trump enforcers are detaining passengers at airports demanding to know their religion. Even Mohamed Ali's son, born in the US, was detained for hours.

Feb 28: Trump claimed that the rising attacks on Jewish cemeteries and synagogues in the US are being perpetrated by Jews. Far more likely, however, is that they are being perpetrated by Trump voters emboldened by his anti-Semitism and bigotry.

Feb 28: Are you ready to have your mind blown? Last night on Rachel Maddow she told a story. A story no one else is really covering. She took 20 minutes of prime time air time to tell it. Please take the time to watch this. There should be no doubt after watching this that something is very, very wrong when it comes to Trump and the Russians. And I'm not just talking about the election. Today Trump will swear-in to his Cabinet the largest shareholder and vice-chair of the Bank of CYPRUS as his "American" Commerce Secretary -- the latest Russian operative and collaborator who happens to be an American citizen because he was born here and holds an American passport. But if judged by his actions, Wilbur Ross has not pledged his loyalty to the US -- he is first and foremost loyal to his billions. And then he must explain his loyalty to Russia. And his possible role in helping a Russian money launderer give Donald J Trump a $40 million dollar "gift." Friends, this whole thing stinks to the high heavens. You don't need more than an 8th grade education to figure out what's going on here. PLEASE watch this piece from Rachel's show last night. Please, you must. Your/our country is in the process of being ripped from you, right under your nose. http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/new-commerce-secretary-at-nexus-of-lucrative-trump-russian-deal-886220355575 (Michael Moore)

Feb 28: So shameful. Trump blamed HIS failed assault in Yemen, killing a Navy Seal, 25 civilians about half of which were young children, the military's fault....just like he claimed the military was stupid before his election. Trump's assault lost a $75 million US helicopter and gained no intelligence. Before today, Trump called his failed assault a huge success.

Feb 28: Trump gave himself an 'A' for achievement. But, nothing but failed Muslim ban, rise in anti-Semitism, threats to the economy and NATO and permission to pollute rivers achieved. No Day 1 promise kept. No radical improvement in health care. Nothing positive achieved.

Feb 28: Trump is more paranoid than Nixon was. He is investigating his staff for leaks of what he calls fake news. He says they are manufactured by the media (how can information be both a leak from his staff and manufactured by the media?). He says that the New York Times is evil. He blames his problems on Obama.

Feb 27: 121 US Generals and Admirals sent letter to Congress pleading that it not permit Trump's destruction of the US State Department.

Feb 27: Trump lied today, what else is new. He said he hasn't called Russia for 10 years. However, it is a fact that he was there 4 years ago for business and bragged about how great Putin treated him.

Feb 27: About healthcare, Trump said, "Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated. I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject." Trump is so perceptive. If he took his hands of Twitter and put his eyes on what is actually known and stopped dreaming of money so much , he might stop looking like a deer in the headlights....and stop lying so much.

Perspective: Trump treats 'true' and 'false' as equivalent, one is as 'good' as the other. Worse actually, Trump says that false/fake is better than truth. Tjos is the story of his adult life. He hates the media because he cannot accept criticism of his lies and lack of truth telling. Anything different from a Trump lie Trump calls phony fake news. He also sees nothing wrong, rather badges of 'honor', with bigotry, racism, sexism and xenophobia. He thrives on audiences that applaud these 'virtues'.

Notably, Trump goes most ballistic against the media over Russia, to which he has his allegience second only to money.

Contrasting with Trump, President George W. Bush said, "I consider the media to be indispensable to democracy. That we need the media to hold people like me to account. I mean, power can be very addictive and it can be corrosive and it's important for the media to call to account people who abuse their power, whether it be here or elsewhere. It's very important for all of us to recognize one of our great strengths is for people to be able to worship the way they want to, or not worship at all. The bedrock of our freedom — a bedrock of our freedom — is the right to worship freely. Terrorists are not religious people. I don't like the racism. I am for an immigration policy that's welcoming and upholds the law."

Feb 26: Israelis will soon be mass producing AK-47s for the U.S. market. An Israeli company with close connections to the country’s elite special forces has been licensed by Russia to produce assault rifles in America. (The Daily Beast) Trump and Russia collaborate again.

Feb 25: Another mockery, Trump pulled a publicity stunt for his DC hotel and restaurant at taxpayer expense (in blatant violation of the Constitution and the lease he has for the building). A line of cars and secret service agents traveled from the White House to his restaurant for dinner. Of course, all media were banned so as not to directly document his profiteering.

Feb 25: Trump can't make it because he can't stomach it. The White House Correspondence Dinner, celebrating since 1920 the First Amendment of the US Constitution. Trump hates the Constitution and freedom of the press, and will not be there April 29. Trump will be the first President not to attend (Ronald Reagan missed 1981 because he was recovering from an assassination attempt). Of course. Maybe Alec Baldwin can fill in.

Feb 25: Muhammad Ali Jr. was detained for several hours by immigration officials at a Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Ali and his mother Khalilah Camacho-Ali were arriving at the airport from a Black History Month event in Jamaica when they were pulled aside by customs and asked if they were Muslim. Trump hates Muslims, especially if they are non-white, even if born in the US and related to Mohammad Ali.

Feb 24: Trump compels Republican legislators across the country to criminalize protests against Trump. Down with the First Amendment to the US Constitution. Today, at CPAC, Trump declared that HE is the future of the Republican Party. RIP Ronald Reagan. Russian flags with Trump's name on them were handed out during Trump's speech. The degradation of America continues.

Perspective: During the campaign, Trump boasted again and again that he had a secret plan that would end ISIS. No where to be found.

Feb 24: Responding to Trump's attacks of the press, the New York Times will run its first ad in its 165-year history during the Academy Awards. "The truth is alternative facts are lies." While Trump claims the Times is failing, it added 276,000 new digital news subscriptions in the fourth quarter of 2016, marking its best quarter in five years. In retaliation, Trump blasted his fiction against the media and banned the New York Times, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Politico and Buzzfeed from a White House briefing today.

"Authoritarian systems define Truth as what the leader believes. This type of truth has always been understood for what it is- A Great Lie." (Steve Schmidt)

Feb 24: 15 law professors have reportedly filed a professional misconduct complaint against White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, saying she "brings shame upon the legal profession. She is currently acting in a way that brings shame upon the legal profession,” citing “conduct involving dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation. Ms. Conway was admitted to the DC bar on January 19, 1995 and is currently suspended for nonpayment of dues.”

Feb 23: President Steve Bannon, the white supremacist behind Trump often referred to as 'Trump's brain', said that government agencies will be deconstructed, torn apart, ruined. Why? To create a government of white supremacy, bigotry, racism, Islamophobia, fraud and ruination of American Democracy, the US Constitution, the economy, the middle class and minorities.

Feb 23: Trump ordered intelligence community to come up with rationalizations for his Muslim ban (ie, fabricate or skew), essentially conceding that there is no known national security reason for his Muslim ban. Homeland Security's in-house intelligence agency, the Office of Intelligence and Analysis, reported that it disagrees with Trump's view that blocking immigration from these seven countries strategically makes sense, they pose no special threat. Accordingly, Trump delayed again his often delayed Muslim ban untill he can manufacture a threat. And, Feb 25, Trump rejected the national security report. Trump wants one that falsifies threats so that he can try his Muslim ban again. Trump will fish for the most misleading report he can get or write it himself and order someone to sign it.

Feb 23: White House said today that what Trump says is not true, it is an adjective. Uh?

Feb 23: Today, Trump said he is going to dramatically expand nuclear weapons, following his campaign promises to use them for nuclear wars in Europe, Arab countries and North Korea. The Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation issued a press release correcting Trump’s alternative facts. "President Trump’s assertions about nuclear weapons policy conveniently ignore the facts. Every world leader on Earth except for President Trump knows that the United States already has the ‘top of the pack’ nuclear arsenal. No U.S. military leader would trade our nuclear weapons for the Russian stockpile, let alone any other nuclear power’s arsenal."

“President Trump’s assertions about nuclear weapons policy conveniently ignore the facts,” former Rep. John Tierney (D-Mass.), the executive director of the center, said in a statement. “Every world leader on Earth except for President Trump knows that the United States already has the ‘top of the pack’ nuclear arsenal. No U.S. military leader would trade our nuclear weapons for the Russian stockpile, let alone any other nuclear power’s arsenal.”

Feb 23: Illegally, again, Trump is interfering in an ongoing criminal investigation of his administration. Not only prodding the FBI for inside information, Trump ordered the FBI and other federal agencies to tell the media that its year-long reporting of connections between Trump and Russia are false. The FBI refused to comply to cover up Trump's treason. In response, Trump berated the FBI.

Update: Even more egregious, Trump ordered the Chairman of the 2 Congressional Intelligence Committees investigating Trump's treason in the House and Senate to spread Trump lies about his known, and still to be investigated, Russian connections to throw the presidential election to him (Sen. Richard Burr and Rep. Devin Nunes, both Republicans and both admitting representing Trump's false views with the media). It is not possible for these Congressional committees to properly investigate Trump; their chairman are Trump's representatives and severely tainted.

Thus, a Special Prosecutor is needed. Rep. Darell Issa called for one due to the severe conflict of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. That the Congressional intelligence investigations are even more severely compromised, appointment of a Special Prosecutor or 9/11- or Watergate-style Commission is mandatory.

Feb 23: About Trump's recurring attack on the media as "the enemy of the people," Will McRaven, a retired Navy admiral and commander of the raid killing Osama bin Laden, believes "We must challenge this statement and this sentiment that the news media is the enemy of the American people. This sentiment may be the greatest threat to democracy in my lifetime."

Feb 23: Almost daily, the VP or a Cabinet Secretary is compelled to reverse a Trump edict. Today, the Secr. of Homeland Security said there will be no mass deportations and the Secr. of Defense said that the military is not being used to deport immigrants. A few days ago the VP and Secr. of Defense assured NATO that the US is committed to NATO and Europe. The Secr. of State and Secr. of Homeland Security are in Mexico today to mend Trump's desctructive threats there. The Secr. of the Treasury said that China is not a currency manipulator. The National Security Advisor said he doesn't like the term 'radical Islamic terrorism' because terrorists are not Islamic. These officers and the courts protect us against Trump's dictatorship. We need Congress to do so as well.

Feb 23: Trump admitted that his forced removal of immigrants is a military operation against Mexico, including tearing a 26 year old women from a hospital diagnosed with brain cancer.

Feb 22: While Trump seeks to undermine and silence the press, the Washington Post, to represent the values of the First Amendment to the US Constitution, added to its mast head, "Democracy Dies in Darkness." Bravo.

Feb 22: Trump-inspired hate led to the murder of 2 people from India living in Kansas. Trump voters killing foreigners is a far larger risk than Trump says, falsely, exists with Muslims.

Feb 22: Trump is a major success. He has inspired bigots, anti-Semitic and racist voters, authoritarians against public welfare and public policy based on fraud. 32% of Republicans now support Vladimir Putin, up 20% compared to 2015.

Feb 21: An Iowa voter summed up Trump's determination to repeal ObamaCare, "We're going to create one great big death panel in this country that people can’t afford to get insurance." Or get the benefits of ObamaCare, eg coverage of pre-existing illness and no caps on coverage.

Feb 21: Newsflash. Trump is lazy and incompetent, blames others for his inadequacies. Of 549 posts requiring Senate approval, Trump has submitted merely 34 names (20 confirmed, 14 awaiting Republican Senate). 515 positions he has falied to even name. He blames the Democrats for what he cannot do.

Feb 20: Trump's bigotry has ignited so many attacks and bomb threats against Jewish centers in the US, the Anti Defamation League pleaded for Trump to deal with what he caused, exemplified by Trump's degrading a Jewish individual asking Trump at his press conference last week about the rising attacks against Jews. Only Ivanka Trump responded. Trump's response was a standard self-centered boast that he is the least anti-Semitic person, ignoring the real concerns of Jews everywhere. Why? Trump does not want to alienate his Nazi and KKK supporters.

Feb 20: So disgusted by the US dicatator, Trump, thousands of UK citizens protested at the UK Parliament against Trump, providing 2 petitions debated for hours inside the House of Commons. One of them had 1.85 million signatures. The other, asking for the visit to continue as planned, had 311,000 signatures. Six times the signers do not want Trump's stench to visit the UK and compared to those for Trump's visit.

Feb 20: Increasingly, Republicans in Congress and in Trump's Cabinet disagree with Trump. Accordingly, Putin, hoping to salvage his puppet US President even though he fired Putin's special friend Michael Flynn, is preparing a psychologcal analysis of Trump, increasingly seeing him as a risk taker and naïve, and now due to pressure seeming to pull back from weakening NATO and supporting Russia. Buyer's remorse?

Feb 18: Trump claims Sweden a terror threat to US. Sweden demands evidence. Again and again, Trump makes things up to scare his voters.

Feb 18: "After four miserable weeks of being locked up in presidential prison—starved of affection, suffocated by bureaucracy, tormented by the press—Donald Trump made a break for it Saturday (Air Force One to Melbourne, FL). Indeed, for at least one evening, Trump was able to inhabit a world where all bad news was fake, all protesters were paid, and the first month of his presidency was universally regarded as an historic success." (The Atlantic)

Perspective: Trump cheapens the White House, democracy and America. His daily attacks are stunts ruining the wonder and admiration of America. And, taxpayers are getting fleeced. Trump is spending 10 times as much as Obama did for personal travels and local law enforcement expenses are skyrocketing. At this rate, Trump will spend over $1 billion plus family travels with taxpayer funds. "What America has seen so far is an inept White House led by a celebrity apprentice. The White House is a toxic mix of ideology, inexperience and rivalries; insiders say tantrums are nearly as common as the spelling errors in the press office’s news releases" (New York Times). "The most dangerous 'enemy of the people' is presidential lying--always. Attacks on press by @realDonaldTrump more treacherous than Nixon's. eal news (not fake) is that @realDonaldTrump trying to make conduct of press the issue instead of egregious (and unhinged)conduct of POTUS" (Carl Bernstein)

Feb 18: "In the four decades I have attended the Munich Security Conference, I cannot recall a year where its purpose was more necessary or more important. The next panel asks us to consider whether the West will survive. In recent years, this question would invite accusations of hyperbole and alarmism. Not this year. If ever there were a time to treat this question with a deadly seriousness, it is now. What would von Kleist’s generation say if they saw our world today? They would be alarmed by an increasing turn away from universal values and toward old ties of blood, and race, and sectarianism. They would be alarmed by the hardening resentment we see toward immigrants, and refugees, and minority groups, especially Muslims. They would be alarmed by the growing inability, and even unwillingness, to separate truth from lies. They would be alarmed that more and more of our fellow citizens seem to be flirting with authoritarianism and romanticizing it as our moral equivalent. I know there is profound concern across Europe and the world that America is laying down the mantle of global leadership.  We need a free press. We must have it. It's vital. If you want to preserve – I'm very serious now – if you want to preserve democracy as we know it, you have to have a free and many times adversarial press. And without it, I am afraid that we would lose so much of our individual liberties over time. That's how dictators get started. They get started by suppressing free press. I worry about the president's understanding of some of these issues and his contradictory articulations" Sen. John McCain)

Feb 17: David Patreus also withdrew from being named as Director of National Security. Refuses to report to a white supremacist (Steve Bannon) and inexperienced young man (Jared Kushner).

Feb 16: China handing over what Trump hopes will be worth billions, a trademark for his name in China. Blatant violation of the US Constitution. "The fact that this decision comes just days after a conversation between President Trump and President Xi Jinping where President Trump reaffirmed the U.S. policy of ‘One China’ is even more disturbing as it gives the obvious impression of a quid pro quo. And this is just the start. Media reports state that the president has dozens of additional trademark applications pending just in China. These types of conflicts are exactly what we feared would happen: the president profiting off of his public service. I am deeply concerned that China and other countries will make certain decisions that will benefit the president with the hope of influencing his foreign policy decisions." (Sen. Dianne Feinstein)

Feb 16: Trump informed the federal court that there's no point in further court battles over Trump's Muslim ban, thus conceding that his Muslim ban was illegal. Trump wasted millions of taxpayer dollars and adversely impacted hundreds of thousands of travelers in the process.

Feb 16: Ten members of the Trump's Advisory Commission on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders resigned, objecting to President Trump's "portrayal of immigrants, refugees, people of color and people of various faiths as untrustworthy, threatening, and a drain on our nation."

Feb 16: At today's delusional 'press conference', scaring the world and emboldening US adversaries even more, Trump boasted that his administration is a finely-tuned machine and that his replacement National Security Advisor, Vice Admiral Robert Harward, was fantastic. BUT, a few hours later, Harward turned down the offer Trump made for the position a 3 days ago. Harward said he could not take the job because the White House is so chaotic, it's a shit sandwich. Trump boasted today that his administration is the opposite of chaos, "this administration is running like a fine-tuned machine," according to Trump. False. Trump's fine-tuned machine is seriously broken.

Perspective: Given the treason, lies, scapegoating, violating the Constitution, conflicts of interest, bankruptcies, business cheating, racist apartment rentals, degrading Islam and sexual assaults, Trump has ZERO moral authority to serve as President. Few will believe him when rants over media coverage of future crises in the economy and national security, when millions are suffering, lose their homes and savings, and hundreds or more killed in failed military confrontations.

Feb 16: Trump tells Dept. of Labor he needs to hire illegal immigrants for his wine business.

Feb 16: Trump claimed that he is running the government like "a fine-tuned machine," pretending as nonexistent several losses in federal and appellate courts over his Muslim ban, his calling the national security community Nazis and in criminal conspiracy against him, millions of Americans protesting against Trump, millions of Europeans and others protesting against Trump, fear in NATO, provocative military actions against the US by Russia and China, major FBI/CIA and Congressional investigations of his treasonous relationship with Russia, firing up his deportation force, his firing of the National Security Advisor over lying, threatening the First Amendment, resorting to alternative facts, doing personal business from the White House in violation of Constitution, orchestrating a disaster in Yemen that killed an American soldier and numerous innocent civilians, nationwide retail strikes, withdrawal of his nominee for Labor Secretary for beating his wife, his Supreme Court nominee criticizing Trump for denigrating the judiciary, manufacturing nonexistent voter fraud and more. About Russia, Trump said, "The leaks are real, the news is fake." About Putin, Trump said he was nice. About Trump's Muslim ban, Trump said the roll out was "perfect." Trump said he was anti-Semitic and racist, just less than others. Trump congratulated Michael Flynn for breaking the law, insisting that it was Flynn's job to do so, and said that he gladly would have told him to do so (negotiating with Russia terms of sanctions). No wonder a GOP Senator said Trump "should do this with a therapist, not on live television." Trump is posing far more chaos and criminality than Watergate. Like Nixon, Trump hates the media BUT also desperately needs the media to make him feel real to palliate his self loathing and extreme insecurity (which Russia, China and North Korea are already exploring).

Trump is still running for President, bragging at his first solo press conference that he received more electoral college votes - 304 (not 306 he said today) - than anyone since President Ronald Reagan. Problem: facts do exist. 1988, Bush had 426; 1992, Clinton had 370; 1996, Clinton had 379; 2008, Obama had 365; 2012, Obama had 332. Trump ranked 46 out of 58 elections.

Regarding Trump's chaotic and illegal Muslim ban, the Justice Department told a federal court today that there's no point in further court battles over Trump's Muslim ban, which have cost taxpayers millions and several lawsuits, because it will soon be replaced by a different Muslim ban.

Feb 16: With Trump in increasing trouble for treason, Putin has ordered his state-run media to reduce its praise for Trump.

Feb 16: Trump was given a gift from China Trump hopes is worth billions, a trademark for his name to be used in his pursuit of massive business in China. A violation of the US Constitution, which has become the theme for Trump in the White House.

Feb 16: Disclosed today is that the wife of the Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is orchestrating support for Trump's Muslim ban. Trump's corruption of government and the Constitution knows no bounds.

Feb 16: Three degrees of treason. 1) Does Trump have connections with Russian spies? 2) Is Trump being manipulated by Russian spies? 3) Is Trump a Russian spy? We know that Russian spies tilted the election to Trump and that Trump asked in a televised press conference last July that Russian spies hack into Democrat email accounts, which they did. Specifically briefed by US intelligence agencies in December about his campaign's continuous contacts with Russian spies, Trump, Pence and Flynn lied about their knowledge until this week. In the process of degradation, Trump is turning his voters against US national security.

Reported by the Wall Street Journal today, US intelligence agencies worry that Trump is a Russian spy. Therefore, they are withholding from Trump's national security briefings 'sources and methods' details, fearing that Trump will inform Russian spies and put lives in danger. Officials told the Journal that intelligence agencies have withheld details from past presidents, but never before out of fear over trustworthiness or leaks. The sources said that concerns stem largely from Trump's friendliness toward Russia and its president Vladimir Putin, and his encouragement of Russian operatives to hack Hillary Clinton's emails. Accordingly, Trump degrades US national security agencies, even claiming that they are Nazis. Shame on congressional Republicans. (A White House official said: "There is nothing that leads us to believe that this is an accurate account of what is actually happening.")

As of now, only the media and judiciary are outside Trump's direct control. To date, the Republican-controlled Congress demurs to Trump's corruption.

Feb 15: Trump walked away from decades of US policy regarding Israel and Palestine, backing off need for the 'two state solution' where both Israel and Palestine would be separate and official countries. Trump is open to the 'one state solution' wherein democracy would define its leadership. In a few years, this would end the state of Israel because by then Jewish citizens would be outnumbered by Arab citizens, assuming of course Israel maintained its democracy.

Feb 15: Trump issues ultimatum to NATO. Pay for his protection or lose it. Russia is very pleased with their man in the White House.

Feb 15: Trump's 3 day delusion binge. Today, Trump blamed fake media, a fictional entity, for Michael Flynn's demise (the media did not fire Flynn, Trump did). Yesterday, Trump blamed an illegal conspiracy of what he degrades as un-American US national security agencies (in contrast, Trump praised them last summer for tilting the election to him away from Hillary Clinton). The day earlier, Trump blamed a dishonest Flynn who lied to VP Michael Pence. Of coure, the Flynn story goes back months, if not years if you include his friendhip with Vladimir Putin. Last summer, during the campaign, the FBI and CIA began investigating Flynn and other Trump leaders for their contacts with Russia's spies. In December, FBI/CIA fully briefed Trump, a week later, Trump claimed he knew nothing about it. Additionally, Dec 29, President Obama issued sanctions against Russia for interfering with the election. The same day, Russia promised retalliation. Dec 30, Flynn had 5 phone calls with Russian intelligence agents. Dec 31, Putin called off retaliation and Trump praised him for being smart. So far, 3 Trump associates have been fired by Trump for Russian contacts known and directed by Trump: Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and Carter Page.

Trump has placed himself in a catch 22. He claims that any talk of his Russian connections is fake news, ie false. On the other hand, Trump considers this 'fake news' as classified intelligence and any 'leaking' a federal crime. To Trump, leaking fake news is a federal crime. (However, the entire intelligence community and Secr. of Defense 'Mad Dog' Mattis all say that Russia did in fact interfere with the presidential election.) Notably, when Trump likes leaks, he praises them, congratulating FBI and Wikileaks last summer when leaks went against Hillary Clinton. Now that leaks reveal his treason, Trump wants them classified and a federal crime and the leakers terminated.

Feb 15: Trump lied again. Last week, Trump promised a new Muslim ban executive order Feb 13 or Feb 14. Didn't happen, perhaps because he is busy consoling Russia on their loss of Michael Flynn in the White House.

Feb 15: Trump claims US national intelligence agencies are "un-American" for noticing Trump's connections with Russia. Trump despises US national intelligence agencies more than Russia.

Feb 15: Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election. American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election. The officials said the intercepted communications were not limited to Trump campaign officials, and included other associates of Mr. Trump. On the Russian side, the contacts also included members of the government outside of the intelligence services, they said. But the intercepts alarmed American intelligence and law enforcement agencies, in part because of the amount of contact that was occurring while Mr. Trump was speaking glowingly about the Russian president, Vladimir V. Putin. At one point last summer, Mr. Trump said at a campaign event that he hoped Russian intelligence services had stolen Hillary Clinton’s emails and would make them public. (New York Times)

Perspective: Trump boasted throughout the campaign that he would be the best manager the White House has ever seen. False, an understatement. On the other hand, Trump is the biggest liar, pro Russian, anti national security, traitor, thief, bigot, racist and sexist President in US history. Chaos. And, Trump has managed to receive millions from taxpayers in just his first month in the White House.

Feb 14: Trump used the Congressional Review Act for the first time in 16 years and only the second time ever to remove the regulation for oil companies to disclose foreign payments, ie bribery to foreign governments. The regulation's purpose was to thwart corruption emanating from the US, antithetical to Trump's corruption.

Feb 14: Emboldened by his child in the White House, Trump, Russia deployed a cruise missile in violation of the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty. The deployment of the missile puts NATO and U.S. forces in Europe at risk. Trump threatened not to protect Europe until they paid him. Trump also threatened nuclear war in Europe. He wants its money in the worst way. Furthermore, Russia has an active spy ship off the coast of Delaware as well as sending more troops into Ukraine (Feb 15, the Russian military presence was 30 miles off coast of Connecticut, still Trump doing nothing). Because of Trump's Russian ties, Trump has said nothing about these Russian provocations.

Feb 13: Another of Trump's illicit contacts with Russia quit, this time Michael Flynn, the National Security Advisor. Russia lost another double agent from Trump's circle (eg, Paul Manafort last summer). Flynn lied that he did not have illicit contacts, even though caught on tape and known by Trump for no less than a month but likely a reason Flynn was made National Security Advisor, a post lacking Senatorial review prior to selection. Not long after Flynn's Russian contact, possibly including CIA methods of obtaining Russian intelligence, Putin poisoned a Russian source for Russian intelligence. A month ago, the Dept. of Justice informed Trump that Flynn was lying about his Russian interactions in ways that subjected him to blackmail (shortly after, Trump fired the Director of DOJ). Still, Trump lied himself about Flynn not having them and even sent VP Michael Pence to the press to deny them. All liars. All traitors. Shame on Congressional Republicans who will not investigate Trump's Russian ties and the illicit contacts with Russia by Trump's 'national security advisor'. (Russia responded by defending its friend, Flynn) (DOJ is investigating Flynn for taking Russian money and violating the Constitution, something that Trump does all the time)

Again, Trump is lying. Friday night Feb 9, Trump said that he was unaware of reports of Flynn's discussions with Russia...even though there had been 24+ hours of media coverage, DOJ notification a few weeks earlier and days of reports during January than Flynn had been discussing with Russia on the day that President Obama issues sanctions against Russia for hacking the presidential election (than got Trump elected). Did Flynn act alone or was he carrying out White House orders? Easy answer, Flynn was told to do it. Treason. The strongest support for Flynn came from Moscow

Feb 13: Federal judge in Virginia rules that Trump's Muslim ban violates the First and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution, as well as the Immigration and Nationality Act and Religious Freedom Restoration Act. "Maximum power does not mean absolute power. Every presidential action must still comply with the limits set by Congress’ delegation of power and the constraints of the Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. It is a bedrock principle of this nation’s legal system that “the Constitution ought to be the standard of construction for the laws, and that wherever there is evident opposition, the laws ought to give place to the Constitution.” The Federalist No. 81, at 481 (Alexander Hamilton) (Clinton Rossiter ed., 1999). Defendants have cited no authority for the proposition that Congress can delegate to the president the power to violate the Constitution and its amendments and the Supreme Court has made it clear that even in the context of immigration law, congressional and executive power “is subject to important constitutional limitations.” Zadvidas v. Davis, 533 U.S. 678, 695 (2001)."

Feb 12: Weak and scared, Trump held another press conference accepting virtually no questions. Careless, Trump held security meeting in public over drinks surrounded by millionaires at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, FL. Unfit, insecure, delusional.

Perspective. "In the four decades between 1975 and 2015, terrorists born in the seven nations in Trump’s travel ban killed zero people in America, according to the Cato Institute. Zero. In that same period, guns claimed 1.34 million lives in America, including murders, suicides and accidents. That’s about as many people as live in Boston and Seattle combined. It’s also roughly as many Americans as died in all the wars in American history since the American Revolution, depending on the estimate used for Civil War dead. Continue reading the main story RELATED COVERAGE Opinion Nicholas Kristof Overreacting to Terrorism? MARCH 24, 2016 It’s true that Muslim Americans — both born in the United States and immigrants from countries other than those subject to Trump’s restrictions — have carried out deadly terrorism in America. There have been 123 such murders since the 9/11 attacks. The bottom line is that most years in the U.S., ladders kill far more Americans than Muslim terrorists do. Same with bathtubs. Ditto for stairs. And lightning. Above all, fear spouses: Husbands are incomparably more deadly in America than jihadist terrorists." (New York Times, Feb. 11)

Feb 12: The terrorist group Hezbollah announced, "We are very optimistic that when an idiot settles in the White House and boasts about his idiocy, this is the beginning of relief for the oppressed around the world."

Feb 12: Trump again on false voter fraud rampage. Claims he supplied massive evidence. Zero of course. Delusional of course.

Feb 11: Hoping no one would notice his weakness, Trump has yet to say anything about the provocative 'near miss' flight of a Chinese surveillance aircraft toward a US military aircraft.

Feb 11: Trump proclaims that legal system is broken in the US, like he proclaimed during the campaign that the Republican Party and democracy were broken. If so, Trump broke them. Other than the ongoing large protests against Trump, it is the judiciary that remains for our protection. (simultaneously, Trump is shocked that 77% of the refugees into the US since his 7-nation Muslim ban came from those 7 countries (actually, one wonders why its not higher, letting the door open to the banned 7 countries obviously would permit these entries into the US). Brilliant delusion. For his entire life, Trump has undercut the credibility of our courts and Constitution.

Feb 10: Trump holds press conference with Japan Prime Minister, but allows only news outlets owned by Rupert Murdoch (eg, Fox News), censoring everyone else. Trump has no respect for the free press as defined in the US Constitution.

Feb 9: James Clapper, Director of National Intelligence until Jan. 20, announced that there is no evidence to support Trump's Muslim ban. Trump is seeing things that do not exist (eg, 3 million fraudulent votes in the presidential election).

Feb 9: Trump's Dept. of Homeland Security says that Trump's (ridiculous) wall will cost $21 billion (Trump said it would cost $12 billion, Congress said it would cost $15 billion). Taxpayers lose big time, or 'bigly' as Trump would say. Undoubtedly, Trump will make billions using construction firms he has associations with.

Feb 9: In his call with Vladimir Putin, Trump denounced the 2010 arms-reduction treaty, which has controlled nuclear weapons. Although Trump did not know what treaty was, when he found out, he denounced it. Who needs nuclear weapons control anyway? (Trump's Secretary of State supports the treaty)

Feb 9: Unlike the success Trump has with ridicule and teenage name calling against Republican legislators and the media, Trump loses with the judiciary. Tonight, it rejected Trump's bogus claims and affirmed the halt in Trump's Muslim ban. From the appellate court, "Rather than present evidence to explain the need for the Executive Order, the Government has taken the position that we must not review its decision at all. We disagree. There is no precedent to support this claimed unreviewability, which runs contrary to the fundamental structure of our constitutional democracy. The Government has pointed to no evidence that any alien from any of the countries named in the Order has perpetrated a terrorist attack in the United States. The Government has not shown that the Executive Order provides what due process requires, such as notice and a hearing prior to restricting an individual’s ability to travel." Trump's response, "A disgraceful decision! SEE YOU IN COURT, THE SECURITY OF OUR NATION IS AT STAKE!" Fact is, there is little evidence that Muslims present a threat inside the US since 9/11, at least infinitesimal compared to terrorism from US citizens. NO refugee from the 7 Muslim countries targeted by Trump produced US terrorism. On the other hand, Trump's Muslim ban is producing ISIS terrorists and more hate against the US...and producing millions to protest Trump around the world, eg hundreds of thousands of Iranian demonstrators gathered to protest Trump in Tehran Feb 10. State television also showed Iranians carrying a banner that read "Thanks Mr. Trump for showing the real face of America." Trump puts the US at risk, security and reputation.

Trump is attempting blackmail against the judiciary, claiming that any Muslim attack in the US will now be the fault of the judiciary. Trump supporters are threatening federal judges, necessitating added protection of their life. Instigating violence is Trump's trump card.

Feb 9: Cashing in on Trump's megalomania, corporations are using publicity stunts to romance Trump. Eg, Intel announced in 2011 a $7 billion investment but told Trump they did it for him. Likewise for all the companies telling Trump they are hiring Americans, something they do no matter who is President. Companies have long been famous for fake news, Trump simply created its use in a big way for his profiteering presidency.

Feb 9: Trump has become the biggest and most famous liar in the world. Yesterday, Trump's Supreme Court nominee Judge Niel Gorsuch said that Trump's attacks on judges was "demoralizing and disheartening." Today, Trump said it was a lie to say that Gorsuch said this. However, Gorsuch's spokesperson said that Gorsuch indeed said this. Also, Republican Sen. Ben Sasse reported that Gorsuch was very passionate about disagreeing with Trump's attacks on the judiciary. Very little of what Trump says is true or legal.

Feb 8: More lies. Today Trump says that Islamic terrorists attacked Atlanta. FALSE. Never happened. But, Trump is determined to protect US from attacks that never happen.

Feb 8: Presidential profiteering takes a hit, so Trump hits back by badmouthing Nordstrom from dropping his wife's line of products (it did so because of poor sales performance). Interestingly, Trump tweeted his attack at 10:51 AM; Trump receives his security briefing at 10:30 AM, he must have cut the briefing short to run to his twitter phone) Trump is and illegal crybaby, running his businesses from the Oval Office. In response, TJ Maxx and Marshals told its employees, "Effective immediately, please remove all Ivanka Trump merchandise from features and mix into the runs." 'Runs' refers to the normal clothing racks where the majority of products hang. “All Ivanka Trump signs should be discarded.”

Feb 8: Trump continues his attack of the judiciary, this time impugning the appellate judges reviewing his illicit Muslim ban. Trump claims that the US will never be safe if the judiciary blocks his Muslim ban. "Even dumb kids can see I am right," says Trump, and bad students in high school are smarter than federal judges. Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, sickened by Trump says Trump's attacks on judges and judicial procedures are "demoralizing and disheartening." (Trump also attacks the DOJ lawyers representing him in court) Undoubtedly, Trump is fuming, may call Gorsuch a traitor at 3 AM.

Feb 8: Emboldened by Trump, the most famous white supremacist in the world, Senate Republicans silenced Sen. Elizabeth Warren from reading the 1986 letter of Loretta King, widow of Martin Luthur King, Jr., who was killed by a white supremacist, against confirmation of white supremacist Sen. Jeff Sessions as a federal judge. Sessions is now under review for US Attorney General to collaborate with Trump's white supremacy. Sen. Mitch McConnell proclaims about Warren, "She was warned. She was given an explanation. She persisted." McConnell: bigoted for white supremacy and against a women.

Feb 8: Presidential profiteering proceeds. The Dept. of Defense plans renting space in Trump's pricey luxury DC hotel. Taxpayers have already paid Trump millions for his other luxury properties. Billions of dollars remain to transfer to Trump.

Feb 7: Trump threatened to "destroy" the career of a Texas state senator after a sheriff told Trump in the White House that he disagreed with legislation the senator wanted to introduce in Texas. Trump thrives on vendettas against Democracy.

Feb 7: Because Saturday Night Live Feb 4 so effectively showed White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer to be a fool, Trump now believes that hiring Spicer was a mistake caused by Trump's Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus. Obvious to anyone watching the illicit acts of Trump, his White House is a clown show.

Feb 7: In a trumpian display of corruption, Trump meeting with Rep. Jason Chaffetz (summoned to the White House to convey maximum pressure), Chair of the House Government Oversight Committee to dissuade investigation into crimes and treason by Trump, FBI/CIA conclusion that Russia steered the election to Trump, Trump's illicit lease for his DC motel, Trump's illegal and unconstitutional Muslim ban etc. On the other hand, Chaffetz spent many millions of dollars on re-investigating Hillary Clinton, producing nothing but still promising to investigate Clinton further.

Feb 6: Trump claims that the media is covering up terrorist attacks. Trump lies again. He says he will provide a list of terrorist attacks the media is keeping secret. Then, why doesn't he tweet us? Update: Trump released a list of 78 terrorist attacks not covered by the media, though his list was assembled based on media reports. 78 lies, though there were some on the list that did not receive wall to wall coverage in the US. For example, the media covered with thousands of hours and hundreds of pages several of the events on the list, such as the Paris (France), Pulse night club, San Bernardino attacks, Russian airliner downed near Egypt, Germany truck attack, Turkey airport bombing etc. The list did not include the tens of thousand of murders in the US every year or the tens of thousands killed by Russia or the mass shooting of African American churchgoers by Dylann Roof, an avowed white supremacist, at a Charleston church in June 2015, or a mass shooting at a Colorado Planned Parenthood clinic or the killing of 20 children and 6 adults at the Sandy Hook, CT elementary school or the many terror attacks inspired by Trump against Muslims across the US. Trump's bogus list also did not include thousands of terrorist attacks against Muslims, probably because he endorses these.

Feb 6: 97 large American companies (eg, Apple, Microsoft, Intel, Twitter, Google, Facebook) and 16 state Attorneys General filed briefs against Trump's unconstitutional and illegal Muslim ban. Trump's response....he neither owns nor wears a bathrobe.

Feb 6: Trump proclaims that all negative polls are fake news. His lies are real news.

Note: Trump confuses terrorism for Islam and relishes infecting his voters with vile bigotry. Terrorists are not Muslims, Muslims are not terrorists. There is no such thing as 'Islamic terrorists' other than another form of racism, seemingly the easiest way to mislead oneself and each other. (Most killers and pedophiles in the US are Christians. It would be a serious error to claim the existence of 'Christianity terrorists' and demean Christianity for political or any other purpose.) Trump's war against Islam is undermining US national security. Targeting Muslims for a ban against entering the US is wrong; since 1980, there have been 3 million refugees into the US...no murders, no arrests. From the the 7 Muslim countries closed off by Trump 2 weeks ago, there have been no terrorists to enter the US.

Feb 5: After a year of boasts that he had the silver bullet to replace Obama Care with cheap insurance for everyone, Trump admitted that he does not. It will take Distiller 2018, the next election, he says now. Likewise, Trump claimed that he had a secret no-lose plan to defeat ISIS. Again, a lie. What is sad is that voters so readily accept lies from hucksters, degrading America and their own futures.

Feb 5: Federal Appeals Court rejects Trump demand to overturn federal judge's halting of Trump's illegal Muslim ban.

Feb 4: Dept. of Homeland Security halted implementation of Trump's Muslim ban, agreeing to follow judiciary even though Trump is not.

Feb 4:Trump defended Putin and degraded the US again. Trump says he respects Putin and that Russia is as immoral as the US, the US is no better than Russia to Trump. Never in US history has a President slandered the US like this.

Feb 4: Trump costs taxpayers $3 million for his presidential profiteering trip to Palm Beach to watch over millions of dollars flowing into Mar-a-Lago. Trump also charged taxpayers $100,000 for sending his son, Eric, to South America on a business trip for Trump.

Feb 4: Trump woke up twitter attacking a long-term federal judge, claiming that he was not qualified Trump to be a judge because he rejected Trump's Muslim ban. Later in the day, continued his twitter attack against the judiciary later in the day, claiming that the federal judge that halted Trump's illegal unconstitutional Muslim ban is is letting "everyone, even with bad intentions" enter the US. Because the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country." No one has found these alleged bad and dangerous Muslims.

Feb 3: After the ban, Trump claimed that it affected only 109 people, although hundreds of thousands protested. Today, the Dept. of Justice, on behalf of Trump, came closer to telling the truth, that 100,000 Visas were illegally canceled. Feb 4, the State Dept. corrected this lie to 60,000 (also false).

Feb 2: Trying to rationalize his Muslim ban and the extreme danger of Muslims in America, Trump invented the Bowling Green Massacre. Just another Trump alternative fact. There was no such event. In 2011, 2 Iraqi's attempted to support al Quaeda from Bowling Green Massacre. No one was killed or injured, there was no actual support. Also, Trump via voice box Conway claimed, falsely, that there was no media coverage of the matter, a recurring Trump lie. In fact, over 90 newspapers covered the matter.

Feb 2: Trump announced, "I will get rid of and totally destroy the Johnson Amendment." The Johnson Amendment, a 60+ year law ,bans all tax-exempt nonprofits — which includes churches and other houses of worship, as well as charities — from “directly or indirectly” participating in any political candidate’s campaign. Trump prefers that taxpayers subsidize charities to become political action committees.

Feb 2: Trump threatened University of California at Berkeley for students protesting against a Breitbart (white supremacist) speaker on campus. Trump sides with the Breitbart speaker, claiming his First Elements rights were violated. But, Trump, the President of the US, is violating the First Elements by threatening students for exercising their First Amendment rights.

Feb 2: Russia reported that Trump weakened the sanctions against Russia's spy agency, FSB.

Feb 2: Emboldened by Trump, House Republicans propose law to allow mentally disabled individuals to purchase a gun.

Feb 1: Trump's infamous physician, Dr. Harold Bornstein, reported that Trump uses a prostate-related drug to maintain hair growth, medication to control rosacea, a common skin problem, and statin, a lipid-lowering medication for elevated blood cholesterol.

Feb 1: Trump threatened Mexico that he will send US troops into Mexico. Tanks, bombs, drones too? Nuclear? Guess Trump's wall will not keep them out of Mexico. (threatening Mexico, Australia and Iran in one day: last week he insulted England and Germany; only one leader in the world Trump praises and does not criticize- Vladimir Putin)

Feb 1: Trump threatened Iran with military action. Iran responded, his threat is useless and comes from someone inexperienced.

Feb 1: Another day, another country berated. Today, it was Australia's turn, bragging to its Prime Minister how great Trump was, how dumb its refugee agreement with the US was and how terrible his call was. Sen. McCain later called the Australian Ambassador to patch things up.

Note: Trump's primary defense that his Muslim ban is not a Muslim ban is that "not all the world's Muslims were banned." (Trump has long promised a Muslim ban, including calling his executive order a ban in one of his Jan 30 tweets.) This is like saying you didn't rob a bank because you only robbed 7 banks and not all the banks in the world, or you don't discriminate against women because you only discriminated against women you know and not all the women in the world. Furthermore, fired by Trump, Attorney General Sally Yates was the only one authorized to approve surveillance warrants against terrorist communications. Until a new AG is finalized, we lose this protection, thus again making the US less safe. Perhaps, Trump is trying to turn off surveillance of his illicit communications.

Jan 31: Emboldened by Trump, Republicans are considering abolishing the EPA, tossing requirements for clean water and air. In Flint, we saw the result of a missing EPA, ruin of Flint's water supply with lead, a powerful irreversible brain toxin, dismissed by Trump because it affected mostly African Americans.

Jan 30: Trump fired the Director of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement shortly after firing the Attorney General. Both were put into their positions Jan 20 by Trump. Obviously, Trump is downgrading the government as he downgrades America.

Jan 30: Acting DOJ Attorney General, Sally Yates, a career Justice Department attorney named Jan 20 by Trump, says that the Trump Muslim ban executive order (a boost for ISIS propaganda) is legally indefensible and informed FBI not to defend legal complaints against it. Several lawsuits have already been filed and 5 federal judges have already ruled against Trump's Muslim ban. Trump quickly fired Yates, who Trump called weak and said she betrayed him, his favorite insult (reminiscent of Nixon's firing the AG before he was removed as President, the Acting Attorney General of the United States, Sally Yates. (from AG Yates: "I am responsible for ensuring that the positions we take in court remain consistent with this institution’s solemn obligation to always seek justice and stand for what is right. At present, I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful. Consequently, for as long as I am the Acting Attorney General, the Department of Justice will not present arguments in defense of the Executive Order, unless and until I become convinced that it is appropriate to do so.") Today, Trump suggested he would fire dozens in the State Department for disagreeing with Trump's Muslim ban. Since many in the Justice Department also disagree, Trump may be saying "Your Fired" to dozens of long-time professionals. A constitutional crisis is at hand.

Jan 30: Trump orders massive cut in regulations used to protect consumers. How soon they forget. Regulations follow from laws typically passed due to horrific fraud and product safety assaults. Only after many are killed, Congress acts to pass protective laws, which are implemented by regulations. And, known mostly by those subject to the regulations, they are mostly written by those subject to the regulations (regulators have far less impact on regulations than the regulated). Generally, decreasing regulations will put Americans at risk, just as Trump is doing in his assault on the US military and national security agencies, Muslim ban and diversion of taxpayer funds to his businesses (undoubtedly there are some regulations that need to be repealed and replaced).

Note: For first time in 30 years, there is no Hispanic in the Cabinet. Trump started his campaign proclaiming that Mexicans were rapists and murderers. Trump is doing every anti-American thing possible.

Jan 30: Trump blamed Sen Charles Schumer's Sunday night tears and Delta's Sunday afternoon computer glitch for the worldwide chaos beginning Friday night in response to Trump's illegal Muslim ban. Monday morning the US Dow Jones stock average dropped over 200 points (1%) directly from Trump's chaos and ban. Trump is determined to feed ISIS with ammunition against the US.

Jan 29: Trump effectively killed his first American soldier and other innocents, calling the doomed military mission a success. For his first military raid, in Yemen, military officials revealed that Trump’s Yemen operation was carried out without sufficient intelligence, ground support or adequate backup preparations, according to reports. An 8 year old girl and several other civilians were also killed. And, Trump's target in the botched raid got away and is now mocking Trump. And, Trump's raid yielded no intelligence (because it didn't start with any). Failure is not success. Update: Feb 8, because of Trump's blunder to kill its civilians (called successful by Trump) and Muslim ban, Yemen ended its permission of US troops into its country. Trump relishes making America less safe.

Jan 29: Another day, another bag of lies, again. Tonight, Trump called his Muslim ban a success and expertly conceived and implemented. False. Hundreds of thousands are protesting around the world. Yesterday, Trump arrested a 5 year old, a 10 year old and a 70 year old among hundreds arrested. Trump is claiming that his Muslim ban does not ban Muslims. False. Everyone arrested was a Muslim and only Muslim countries were targeted. Trump claims that he devised his Muslim ban with Congress. False. Trump claims that his Muslim ban was never to include Muslims with Green Cards. False. Until today, Trump said it did. Notably, Trump's Muslim ban includes no country he has business operations and includes no country that has produces terrorists that have struck the US. Today, Trump spoke with the government of Saudi Arabia, where he significant businesses and which produced the most damaging terrorists against the US in US history. Saudi terrorists killed 3,000 Americans September 11, 2001 but was not targeted by Trump for his Muslim ban, a key promise he made for several months during his illicit campaign. Today, Trump attacked Senators Graham and McCain for disagreeing with his Muslim ban, claiming that they are trying to start WWIII and they are weak. ISIS and Russia are so happy. The United States is getting weaker under Trump, of course not without diverting large amounts of government funds into his businesses. Criminal. (Reuters: "U.S. judges in at least five states blocked federal authorities from enforcing President Donald Trump's executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. However, lawyers representing people covered by the order said some authorities were unwilling on Sunday to follow the judges' rulings.")

Jan 29: Several other federal judges halted Trump's illegal Muslim ban. Demonstrating his delusions again, in the face of hundreds of thousands protesting Trump's ban, Trump says it is going smoothly. Update: several lawsuits against Trump's Muslim ban have been filed, including one where Customs Agents canceled on their own 2 Visas.

Jan 28: Trump's Jan 27 executive order, which struck fear around the world, to stop Muslims from rightfully entering the US was blocked by a federal judge. Trump suspended due process for Muslims in America. This is a constitutional crisis. Hundreds arrested by Trump at airports today are in the process of being released, though some may be jailed for weeks. Trump says that returning them to their birth country to be executed is merely an inconvenience. This is historic, as is all the illegality and corruption of Trump's presidency. America will continue to be shamed by Trump and those Republicans following his illegality and corruption. Unfortunately, Trump is dedicated to ruining the judicial branch of government as well as the executive and legislative...and encouraging ISIS terrorism against the US. (from CNN: "President Donald Trump's seismic move to ban more than 130 million people from the United States and to deny entry to all refugees reverberated worldwide Saturday, as chaos and confusion rippled through US law enforcement agencies, airports and foreign capitals trying to grasp the US's new policy.") Unquestionably, Trump is making the US less safe, inhibiting any Muslims from helping the US against terrorism. Notably, Trump's Muslim ban does not apply to any country Trump supplying employees for Trump's businesses, Trump wants to weaken his competitors.

Jan 28: In an unprecedented assault on US national security, Trump illegally redefined National Security Council, adding the white-supremacist, alt-right leader, pro-Russian Steve Bannon and removing US's top military and national security advisors, the Director of National Intelligence and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, thus further degrading US security. Russia grins. And, John McCain says that Trump's Muslim ban will give ISIS comfort and propaganda against the US. According to US law, Bannon cannot legally be added to the National Security Council; the law specifies its members and white-supremacist political hack is not on the list (US Code, Title 50, Section 3021).

Jan 28: Day after day, Trump underscores how small he is, a whiner, a name caller, a fraud. Today as usual, Trump attacked the media for truthful reporting of his insanities, corruption and lies. Trump calls the truth 'fake news' all the while Trump manufactures fake news, false facts, alternative facts and lies. Trump sure likes Putin though.

Jan 28: Another day, another Trump attack of the constitutionally protected media. Trump wants only a state-run propaganda media like Russia, for Trump comprised of his Twitter, Fox News and redefined Voice of America.

Jan 27: Trump signed an illegal executive order citing 9/11 to justify his Muslim ban on all travel to the US, but not including any of the countries the hijackers came from, or any of the countries where he owns businesses.

Jan 27: Another day, another Trump lie, another wasted voter, another assault on democracy and integrity. Turns out that many of the executive orders signed by Trump were holdovers from Mitt Romney/2012 plans. According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump's mistreatment of Mexico is "amateur hour." California has begun the process to leave the US; if it happens, Trump will be known for breaking up America. Mexico residents started boycotting US products. And why not, Trump is still saying that they are rapists and murderers. Trump's wall, even if 50 feet deep and 1,000 feet high would not curtail illegal immigration; it's $15 billion price tag for Americans a needless burden. Trump has begun a war on science to complement his war on truth. Trump said that 2 were fatally shot in Chicago while President Obama was speaking, false of course. Trump is digging in on his false allegation of massive voter fraud, seen as undermining the Constitution by Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger and countless others. While Trump riled against Hillary Clinton for using a non-government email server, Trump and his top staff are using private email servers and unprotected phones for Twitter. Trump is making millions of dollars of profit in 2017 alone for his role as President, illegal of course. Trump wants to commit torture, a war crime. Trump is considering easing sanctions against Russia for invading another country, instead rewarding his best friend, Putin. Trump's anti-Muslim and taking Iraq oil plans is pleasing ISIS. Russia grins, the world laughs.

Jan 27: Kremlin announces that Putin and Trump will speak with each other Jan 28, the first time since the election. Putin already congratulated Trump 'victory' through state media and government cheers. (notably, Trump is telling the US media to shut up and has elevated Fox News as his state media....it's the Russian thing to do) Also, Putin arrested a Russian spy for treason possibly after being tipped off about a source of information against Trump. US intelligence agencies expressed their worries a week ago that intelligence they give to Trump will be handed over to Russia.

Jan 26: Reminder. For 5 years, Trump claimed that President Obama was an illegal immigrant.

Jan 26: Trump at war with media and Mexico, insisting that the media is the enemy and should keep its mouth shut, not Democrats, and that Mexico will be charged a 20% tariff on products sold to the US. Particularly amazing, Trump is at war with the media while desperately needing their approval to validate is worth. When his news shows he is worthless and gets smaller audiences that President Obama and women marching the day after inauguration, he bites. Trump is an incredibly small man fighting American values, the Constitution, foreign countries, the world economy....while admiring and relying upon Vladimir Putin.

Jan 26: Trump says that it was "very, very, very scary" when he was given codes to launch nuclear war. Yes, we know, very scary.

Jan 26: Moving to further reduce America's role in the world, and thus elevate Russia's, Trump plans to cut funding of the United Nations by 40%. Trump's anti-NATO position stands. Russia grins, their US President is doing a good job for them.

Jan 26: Trump announced he wants to use torture, a US and international crime. However, he says he will let the Secretary of Defense, CIA Director and his 'team' over rule him. Thus, Trump is ceding control, although he prefers illegal torture. (Trump says anyone who says that violating international law in this regard, the Geneva Conventions, are fools. Thus, he is calling leading Republicans and his Cabinet fools.

Jan 25: Trump doubles the membership fee for his Winter White House in Palm Beach, Mar-a-Lago, jumping from $100,000 to $200,000. More profit for Trump as President.

Jan 25: Trump threatens to send federal empire storm troopers to Chicago to rid the city of alleged criminals. Got a parking ticket, charged with any crime whatsoever, merely suspected of being a threat...be afraid, be very afraid.

Jan 25: Trump continues his fake voter fraud charge. One example of his voter fraud: a voter registered in 2 states, like his daughter Tiffany and his son-in-law and top advisor Jared Kushner. And so does Steve Bannon and Steven Mnuchin, top member of Trump's White House staff. Fraud begins in the home; no wonder Trump claims so much voter fraud. Of course, Kelly Ann Conway has "alternate facts", ie lies, that say otherwise.

Jan 25: Trump announces "major investigation" into almost nonexistent election fraud, hoping to establish that voter fraud invalidates his election. Trump hopes to spend millions of taxpayer dollars for a unicorn investigation. Best evidence indicates 31 cases in 1 billion votes. This is about the odds of winning the lottery. Trump is claiming millions of cases of voter fraud in his election (demanding that the National Park Service 'find' evidence to manufacture a Trump 'truth'; they could not because Trump's claim is baseless), thus making his election illegitimate if truthful. Alas, it is not truthful. His election was illegitimate, however, due to tilting of the election to Trump by Russia.

Jan 24: Trump issues executive memo abandoning TPP because it helps China. One problem: TPP does not involve China in any way, they are not among the dozen countries that have signed on. Another Trump lie/delusion.

Jan 24: From the White House press room, Trump had the White House Press Secretary delve into the bizarre, ie into the (fake) Trump-alleged 3-5 million illegal votes in the election, insisting that Trump believes this occurred based on (nonexistent) studies. (Trump also says 14% of votes were from non citizens. That's 19 million illegal votes out of 137 million.) Speaker Paul Ryan says Trump's belief is false, as did Senator Graham, as do all experts, the author of the study Trump sites from Pew, and best of all our own eyes). No evidence, just Trump fake news. So insecure, Trump has now spent 2 days on this matter by day 5 of his presidency. Serious concerns are raised again about his sanity. Will he similarly lie and reveal mental disturbance regarding other national security matters? When he makes a consequential life and death decision or takes the US into nuclear war, can anyone truly rely on Trump?

Jan 23-26: An early violation of the US Constitution by Trump, receiving money from an agent for the Saudi government.

Jan 23: In another step to fascism, Trump ordered government agencies not to publicly discuss scientific research.

Jan 23: Copycatting Kim Jong-un of North Korea, Trump declared Jan. 20, 2017 "National Day of Patriotic Devotion." Still wishes he got his wish to have tanks and bombs in his inauguration parade.

Jan 23: More lies and delusion. Trump announced that there were 3-5 million votes in the presidential election, which would be the biggest scandal and crime in US election history. Trump will not investigate because he realizes that he is illegitimate. If in fact there were 3-5 million illegal votes, this would be further proof of his illegitimacy.

Jan 22: Trump's Department of Defense claims that using 'social media', eg Twitter, is linked to behavior issues. "Social media postings sometimes provide an important window into a person’s #mental health." How true in Trump's case.

Jan 22: Trump has Kelly Ann Conway rationalize his statement that there were more attendees at Trump's inauguration that the Women's Day March on Jan 21, calling his version "alternative facts." This is what Trump uses to confuse, mislead and lie. Alternative facts are false, are lies.

Jan 22: Trump promised to release his income tax returns often, as long as the phantom audit was complete. Another lie. Today, Trump says never. Too much to hide from America.

Jan 21: After several delays to the Trump's promised statement at 4:30 PM, Trump, ever ready to defend his penis size, announced at 5:40 PM (amidst the plethora of serious issues around the world, the largest protest against a US President in history today counting into millions marching in 600 US cities and 66 countries and Trump's egregious disrespect of fallen CIA officers today) that Trump is seethingly angry and at war with the media (remember, he was at war with the CIA between election and inauguration and minorities during the campaign). The press secretary, acting with the haste of a global catastrophe, yelled at the media in the room for the entire 4 minute Trump statement. Every 'number', which the press secretary insisted was impossible to obtain but listed fake/false numbers anyway. Foaming at the mouth, the press secretary answered no questions in the White House press briefing room and ran out. A very poor performance by someone too inept for the position. Trump alleges false and shameful reporting, although accurate, to cover up his lies. Even though Trump's National Park Service published comparison photos (as did many others ) of the relatively smaller attendance for Trump's inauguration yesterday compared to President Obama's inauguration. In retribution against a US Dept. of Interior, Trump ordered its web site shut down. Any viewer can readily see that Trump is lying, that the difference in attendance is dramatic: Trump's audience was about half that of Obama's AND substantially less than today's Washington protest rally/march. Trump is delusional again. The 5:40 PM angry Trump statement also alleged that there were 400+ CIA personnel present in the room of today's Trump CIA speech, that they were raucous and the room was overflowing (consistent with typical lies about attendance figures). Huff and puff, huff and puff, simply to roll out more lies. No wonder Trump's public support has dropped every day since election day. Putin's grin gets wider and wider.

Jan 21: Well, Trump rolled out his campaign lies again, this time during his first official visit as President. At the CIA, which he demeaned intensely for several months, Trump bragged about how great he is, that the media manufactured his feud with the CIA (all they did is quote his malicious tweets against the CIA the last several weeks), claimed as usual that the media are the most dishonest people on earth (mostly for quoting his campaign speeches), that God stopped the rain for his speech the day before (actually, a cold rain started during his speech), bragged about being on the cover of Time Magazine 15 times (though, they were mostly highly critical of Trump, eg 2 covers covering his campaign meltdowns) and that there were 1.5 million people at his egregious inauguration (perhaps, there was a third of that; furthermore, Trump claimed that a circular area in front of him during the speech had 250,000 even though this area holds at most a few thousand). As usual, Trump was sickening, focusing on his ego rather than the sacrifices of the many in the CIA who died while serving the US represented on the wall of stars Trump offensively used as the background for his lies and fake news. Again and again, Trump shows how small he is and his uncanny personal recognition of his deep inadequacies. Again and again, his speeches are mostly delusional and psychiatric revelations of the world's most famous bigot and egomaniac. So insecure, Trump told CIA professionals, "Trust me, I'm like a smart person." What is not known is whether Trump talked business at the CIA, eg more about their conclusions about Russia's tilting the election to him, or whether has spoken with the FBI and several other agencies investigating many known contacts between his election campaign and Russia. Does Trump want to know anything more about his collusion with Russia to snatch the US presidency?

CIA Director until yesterday, John Brennan, responded, Trump "should be ashamed of himself" for his "display of self-aggrandizement" in front of CIA's memorial wall of agency heroes. Brennan said that he "is deeply saddened and angered" at Trump.

Eventually, no one will believe Trump's lies or will believe him when he tells the truth.

Trump made other big news at the CIA show, announcing that the US should take Iraqi oil and the US may get another chance to get it. Trump is thinking about invading an ally to confiscate their oil. This is against US as well as International law.

Jan 20: Trumps first act was to cancel FHA mortgage fee cut, meaning that FHA mortgage holders will pay about $500 more for FHA insurance, amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars of expense to FHA mortgage holders. Why? To get more money for his billionaire Cabinet and other billionaires.

As President Elect (elected on lies and bigotry, chosen by Vladamir Putin)

Nov 10: Says President Obama a very good man (previously called him Satan)

Nov 11: Names Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, Don Trump Jr. and Eric Trump to Presidential Transition team. His children will act as a blind trust for his 500 businesses. (how is this legal, simultaneously part of government and executives of a fake blind trust?)

Nov 13: Same sex marriage constitutionality settled, "fine with it." The enabling 17 month old law is 'settled law', but the 43 year Roe v Wade and confirmed several times by the Supreme Court is not.

Nov 13: Steve Bannon named Chief Strategist (Breitbart CEO and guru for racism, fascism, Republican hate, white supremacy, populism, anti-immigration, anti-Muslim, fear mongering, divisiveness, anti-Semitism, Clinton bashing, false campaigns, lies, dirty tricks and baseless conspiracy theories) . Predictably, naming Bannon has reaped substantial praise from the KKK and other white supremacist groups. David Duke says "an excellent decision." In 2014, Bannon said, "I’m a Leninist. Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that’s my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today’s establishment." The FBI reported a 67% increase in hate crimes against Muslims and an overall 7% increase. Bannon trained Trump well during the campaign based on the revulsion by non-whites about Trump's election. While prohibited by ethics rules from involvement with Breitbart, it is unlikely he will comply.

Nov 13: Will not use White House as full-time residence, will spend weekends in Palm Beach club, Manhattan penthouse and New Jersey golf course (part-time President?) January 2016, Trump offered to build a $100 million ballroom for the White House.

Nov 13: Praises Chinese President Xi Jinping (previously, Trump called China a trade cheat and currency manipulator) (day after election, Trump won 10 year old trademark dispute in China over use of his name in China. Of the 53 registered trademarks under the Trump name in China—in categories ranging from clothing and beauty salons to pet care and golf courses—only 21 are owned by Trump. The Trump trademarks that he doesn’t own, some of which were registered recently, include aquarium products, ammunition, explosives, poker cards, condoms and tennis rackets.) Chinese President tells Trump that global warming is not a Chinese hoax; it's pursuit began with Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush...climate negotiations began in 1980s

Nov 13: After speaking with various world leaders, Trump calls Alex Jones, the hyper-agitated fire-breathing ultra-vile conspiracist, to arrange a meeting over the next few months and again broadcast an interview on InfoWars radio. During the campaign, Jones boasted that Trump would repeat many of the radio shows in his campaign speeches. For example, after Jones said President Barrack Obama and Hillary Clinton had the sulfur smell of the devil, Trump called them Satans. Jones initiated Trump's hatred of the media, and more.

Nov 13: Downgrades at least part of his grand 2,000 mile Mexican wall to a fence

Nov 13: Says there will be 2-3 million immediate deportations. Private prison companies looking to cash in.

Nov 13: Says he needs guidance from President Obama, did not know job as President entailed so much

Nov 13: Women may need to go to another state for abortions if overturned at federal level

Nov 13: Says core components of Obama Care will be kept (coverage for pre-existing illness and for children up to age 26)

Nov 14: Says he needs Ivanka Trump, her husband Jared Kushner, Don Trump Jr. and Eric Trump to have top secret security clearances (to better run the 500 Trump businesses, many international; a serious constitutional violation and conflict of interest) Designated son-in-law Jared Kirshner and retired General Michael Flynn to receive the daily presidential security briefing.

Nov 14: VP-Elect Pence's public business emails made private

Nov 14: Trump and Putin create partnership. Sen. John McCain responds, "We should place as much faith in such statements (from Putin) as any other made by a former KGB agent who has plunged his country into tyranny, murdered his political opponents, invaded his neighbors, threatened American allies, and attempted to undermine American elections." (they did; Trump praised Putin throughout campaign and urged Putin to cyberattack the American election)

Nov 15: Steve Bannon, Chief White House Strategist, will not be made available to the public.

Nov 15: Campaign promises of tax cuts, defense spending, infrastructure spending, fix inner cities shaved. (supporters outwitted by deceit again)

Nov 15: Says the Electoral College is a genius for not using the popular vote. Election day Nov. 2012, Trump said that it "was a disaster for democracy" for not using the popular vote. (Clinton's popular vote more than 1 million more than Trump)

Nov 15: Meets with 3 business partners from India regarding a Trump hotel business after vow to step away from company. (one of many conflicts of interest)

Week One: Other than Nov. 10 trip to Washington, DC, Trump secluded in Manhattan penthouse. Transition team in disarray from infighting and firings. Without preparation, Trump spoke to various world leaders. Negotiated with Putin. Receiving criticism from Republicans. Substantial criticism for designated Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist. Trump not yet contacted Defense or Justice departments. Nuclear strike decision against North Korea looms. Recognized that the Trump administration is already corrupt for the utility of the power of the presidency to promote and benefit Trump businesses.

Nov 16: Trump bans lobbyists from transition team and administration and issued a post-employment ban to lobby 5 years.

Nov 16: Bankers gleeful with Trump for putting together a bankers' dream team.

Nov 16: Key Trump surrogate proposes Trump Muslim registry, claiming that an internment camp like the illegal camp used for Japanese Americans in the 1940 would be legal. Former Navy Seal Carl Higbe said, "We've done it based on race, we've done it based on religion, we've done it based on region. We've done it with Iran back — back a while ago. We did it during World War II with [the] Japanese."

Nov 17: Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, resigned. "I have 64 days left and I would have a hard time with my wife for anything past that."

Nov 17: Paris Hilton reveals she voted for Trump. Notably, Trump boasted on a radio show that he watched porno tape of Hilton when she was 12 years old.

Nov 17: Disclosed that Trump meeting with Mitt Romney about Secretary of State job. Notably, about Trump, Romney said, "Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University. He's playing members of the American public for suckers. He gets a free ride to the White House, and all we get is a lousy hat. (he's a) con man and fraud."

Nov 17: Trump takes credit for something he did not do, as usual. This time, claiming to work hard with Ford and save a Ford plant in KY that was not closing.

Nov 17: Michael Flynn appointed National Security Advisor (a Senate hearting not required for this position, thus his conflicts of interest will not be reviewed by Senate). After his appointment, Flynn reversed his disagreement with using torture, now endorsing it on behalf of Trump. Flynn friendly with Russia, recurring visitor to Russia's state-run television, and claims that the religion Islam is not a religion but a political ideology (there are 1.3 practitioners of Islam, the second largest religion; notably, in the US being a Christian is mostly required to become elected, politicizing Christianity). Flynn tweeted Feb 2016, "Fear of Muslims is RATIONAL. Pro Russia, anti Muslim like Trump. Flynn received national security briefings during the campaign as he was consulting international clients, a conflict of interest (same plan for Trump and Jared Kirshner, get national intelligence for their businesses). KKK leader David Duke applauded Flynn's appointment, tweeting "Great Pick! - Gen. Flynn's re-tweet shows he knows that the Saudis, ISIS & the Jewish-NeoCons are the real enemies - NOT Assad & NOT Russia!." Hundreds of millions of Muslims are worried, especially American citizens who are increasingly being attacked by Trump supporters emboldened by Trump's bigotry. If a President can be bigoted, why not his supporters. Flynn had technicians secretly install an Internet connection in his Pentagon office, even though it was forbidden. After Flynn's son was caught spreading fake news that got Trump elected and going for a security clearance, he was allegedly dismissed from the team. Flynn himself illegally passed classified material to foreign governments. Flynn partnered this year with a company that is run in part by a man who was convicted of trying to sell stolen biotech material to the KGB.

Nov 17: Wall Street Journal recommends that Trump and family members liquidate their businesses to avoid self dealing.

Nov 17: Ivanka Trump sits in meeting between Trump and Japan Prime Minister to help steer family businesses.

Nov 17: Sen. Jeff Sessions, who has no confidence with FBI Director Comey, appointed Attorney General (in the 1980s, Sessions was deemed unfit to be a judge because he called the NAACP un-American and communist inspired; he thought that the KKK was fine until he found out they smoked pot; with Trump, everyday is Christmas for the KKK). Rep. Michael Pompeo appointed CIA Director.

Nov 17: Offered Gen. Jack Keane Secretary of Defense post, Keane declined offer.

Nov 18: To avoid testifying under oath, opening himself to perjury, Trump settled lawsuits against Trump University in favor of 6,000 Trump victims for $25 million, something he vowed repeatedly during the campaign that he would never do. We can expect tax return shenanigans, eg his charity will pay or he will loan the defunct university the $25 million and report it as a loss or his political campaign will pay for it. Again and again, his voters were duped with false claims, and Trump business fraud. And, as 2 wives learned, bye bye to Trump vols. When Trump swears to do something, run. About 75 additional lawsuits against Trump remain. Trump sits on a career mountain of fraud.

Nov 21: Scrapping the First Amendment, Trump summoned ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News and CNN and MSNBC executives and news anchors to his tower to yell at them for being liars, dishonest and deceitful...exactly what Trumps excels at.

Nov 21: Federal Election Commission finds a thousand violations of election law with Trump's campaign contributions, totaling $1.3 million.

Nov. 22: Trump confirmed that he has continued to talk business while holding meetings as president-elect, adding "the president can't have a conflict of interest." (The previously most corrupt President, Richard Nixon, said, "when the president does it, that means it is not illegal." Both positions are egregiously illegal.) Trump made very clear his priority, business before country. "In theory, I could run my business perfectly and then run the country perfectly." Trump also boasted that his new luxury hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue is "probably a more valuable asset than it was before" and his Trump brand is "hotter" now.

Nov 22: Trump reported to the IRS that his charity performed numerous illegal acts of self dealing. Trump admitted that he broke the law. Impeachable.

Nov 22: Trump says son-in-law, Jared Kushner, could help broker Israeli-Palestinian peace. (In October, Kushner held private talks with a pro-Russian figure in Paris regarding joint US-Russia efforts to end war in Syria!!!)

Nov 22: Another change from the campaign. Trump now says human activity impacts climate change and he will consider the Paris agreement.

Nov 22: Cheer leading 'lock her up' during the campaign, Trump decides not to prosecute Hillary Clinton, says he doesn't want to hurt the Clintons.

Nov 23: Nikki Haley chosen as UN Ambassador. Before the election, Haley criticized Trump's ethical and moral problems, and did not endorse Trump.

Nov 23: Republican billionaire mega-donor Betsy DeVos selected for Secretary Education.

Nov 23: Ben Carson appointed Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. During campaign, Trump said Carson was medically pathological for trying to kill his mother. In 2015, Carson called the 1968 Fair Housing Act an action of a communist country.

Nov 25: Fox News pundit, K.T. McFarland, appointed Deputy National Security Advisor. In 2013, McFarland said, "The world knows that Vladimir Putin is the one who really deserves that Nobel Peace Prize." A dictator, killer, invader, anti-west, ant-democracy, cyberattacker, state spy for the Peace Prize? No wonder Trump picked McFarland.

Nov 29: Rep. Tom Price chosen for Secretary Health and Human Services to end Obamacare's protections of coverage for pre-existing conditions and for children up to age 26 under their parents' plan. Elaine Chao, wife of Sen. Mitch McConnell, appointed Secretary of Transportation.

Dec 1: Trump threatens Carrier to keep jobs in US, slammed by Wall Street Journal Dec 2. Trump slammed the union leader for not saving the jobs (probably because the union leader could not provide taxpayer funds, ie corporate welfare, and business threats like Trump did. When the union leader noted that Trump lied about the number of jobs saves, Trump attacked the union leader. As desired by Trump, his supporters showered the union leader with death threats. In effect, Trump threatens your death if you criticize him. Trump will be the most vindictive President in US history.

Dec 1: Trump appointed anti-Islam Gen. James Mattis Secretary of Defense.

Dec 1: Trump appointed foreclosure king and major contributor to the 2008 economic collapse Steven Mnuchin Secretary of Treasury.

Ded 3: Trump tells Philippine President Duterte, who encourages rape, that his slaughter of drug dealers without judicial process is great. Trump admires Duterte from traveling the streets and killing people himself that Duerte thinks are criminals.

Dec 4: Trump threatens companies who manufacture outside the US with tariffs, bad mouth tweets and loss of business.

Dec 6: Trump claims he sold all of his stock in June, 5 months before his election. Yea, right. He's selling the Brooklyn Bridge too.

Dec 7: Trump announced that pharmaceutical prices are too high and that he is going to bring them down, ie interfere with the market.

Dec 7: Trumps selected Gen. John Kelly for Secretary of Homeland Security. (during the campaign, Trump denigrated generals as stupid and futile)

Dec 7: Trump selected Scott Pruitt, Oklahoma attorney general, for EPA Director. (Pruitt is suing the EPA and promotes fossil fuels)

Dec 7: Trump selects co-founder of WWF ('professional' wrestling), Linda McMahan, for Director of Small Business Administration. McMahan was Trump's largest campaign donor ($5 million). Money from the swamp talks.

Dec 8: Trump selects fast food CEO Andy Puzder for Secretary of Labor. Puzder repeatedly violated labor laws, opposes a $10/hr minimum wage and prefers the existing $7.25/hr wage, foreign workers and robots over American workers. (Trump prefers to manufacture his products outside US and to hire foreign workers.)

Dec 9: Progress Report. Trump looking at 5 generals for cabinet, just the group that he said were fools during the campaign. One of them, David Patraeus, if chosen, will have to get permission from his probation office to ever leave North Carolina (Patraeus is a convicted felon for giving his mistress classified information). Trump intends to be the most corrupt President in US history, 'earning' millions between the election and inauguration by fleecing foreign governments and instituting gangster capitalism (extorting businesses). Trump will continue on as executive producer of NBC's The Apprentice. Trump selling access for $1 million donations. Trump will be in violation of the US Constitution Dec 15 upon the vote of the Electoral College. Trump continues his fake news machine, the successful con that got him elected. Trump continues his twitter wars and insults against Americans. Trump continues to exonerate Putin, side with Russia and disagree with 17 national intelligence agencies and countless security professionals in the private sector that Russia interfered with the US election; Trump claims that the CIA is ridiculous. Trump continues to believe that the US military and intelligence agencies are useless. Trump continues to not show up to national security briefings, claiming he doesn't need them because he is smart. Trump continues to castigate the free market as the "dumb market." Trump defenders continue to look like idiots to Russia, ISIS, Syria and other dictators that Trump likes. Trump-inspired death threats and bigotry continue. Trump supporters continue to prefer fiction, fake news and bogus conspiracy theories over truth. Trump is staffing his administration with lobbyists, billionaires, Wall Street executives (particularly Goldman Sachs, so much so that the process is called Government Sachs) and TPP supporters to fleece America more than it ever has been. Trump remains unfit for the presidency or to tell the truth.

Most importantly, today the CIA concluded that Russia indeed steered the US election to Trump. "It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected. That’s the consensus view." Trump is illegitimate. Dec 10, Sen. Lindsay Graham said, "Don't have to be Sherlock Holmes to figure out what Russia is up to -- they're trying to undermine democracies all over the world. Russia is trying to break the backs of democracies – and democratic movements – all over the world. Using Trump, Putin succeeded in degrading America. Putin determined the outcome of the presidential election. Shamefully, congressional republican leaders argued against informing voters prior to the election.

Dec 10: The day after CIA revealed Russia's conspiracy to elect Trump, Trump selected Exxon Mobil CEO Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State. Tillerson has complementary ties dating back two decades to Russia and has personal ties with Vladimir Putin. Tillerson negotiated an energy partnership with Putin in 2011 that the Russian president said could be worth $500 billion. (Trump's National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, also has direct ties with Putin) Tillerson has no experience for the job other than his Trump-treasured ties with Russia. Russia responded with glee and applauds Trump's war with the CIA. For Russia, 'Trump and Tillerson' is the dream team to erode America from within.

Dec 9: Trump brags about despising US companies hiring foreign workers. Says it is illegal. Except when he does it, again and again. Today, his application was approved to hire foreign workers for Trump Vineyards at wages he could easily get US citizens to work for, $10.72 per hour. How soon will he deport his 'illegal immigrant' workers? Never.

Dec 12: Responding to Trump's attacks of China's sovereignty, China flies bomber with nuclear weapons over South China Sea. China's response to Trump's indication of changing the decades-old One China policy....if Trump proceeds, China has nothing more to discuss, including trade, environmental cooperation, manufacturing cooperation and controlling North Korea's nuclear weapon development. (During summer 2016, emboldened by Trump's anti-NATO policy, Russia deployed nuclear weapons close to NATO countries.) During the campaign, Trump called for nuclear confrontations and proliferation. If Trump proceeds, the economy and world security will explode. Of course, this is what Trump seeks with his tyranny...ruin America and the lives of everyone. (Dec 15, China seized an underwater Navy drone as another signal to Trump.)

Dec 12: Trump reveals another lie. For weeks, Trump has been promising a press conference and thorough announcement about his business conflicts of interest. Canceled today, plan now is for January.

Dec 12: Someone close to Trump, perhaps Trump himself, sold substantial stock in Lockheed Martin right before Trump trashed the company in a tweet, which caused significant decline in stock value. The seller netted millions in profit from this large 'short sell' of stock. Trump’s attack coincided with a four-percent drop in the Maryland-based company’s stock, wiping out $4 billion in wealth.The president-elect’s Twitter rants are notorious and often target American businesses against which Trump reportedly holds personal grudges. This is insider trading, it is illegal. It will explode during Trumps control of government. Trump will be the ultimate insider trader.

Dec 13: Trump selects Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy, the agency he could not remember when he said he would abolish 3 agencies: "it’s three agencies of government when I get there that are gone: Commerce, Education and the, uh, uh, what’s the third one there, let’s see?” Pressed on whether he could name the third agency, he confessed: “I can’t. Sorry. Oops.” During the campaign, Perry noted about Trump, "He offers a barking carnival act that can be best described as Trumpism: a toxic mix of demagoguery, mean-spiritedness and nonsense that will lead the Republican Party to perdition if pursued. Let no one be mistaken: Donald Trump’s candidacy is a cancer on conservatism, and it must be clearly diagnosed, excised and discarded. Donald Trump, the reality television star, is a great generator of ratings. But Donald Trump the candidate is a sower of division, wrongly demonizing Mexican-Americans for political sport. He has piqued the interest of some Republican voters who have legitimate concerns about a porous border and broken immigration system. But instead of offering those voters leadership or solutions, he has offered fear and sound bites. This cannot stand. He couldn’t have endured for five minutes what John McCain endured for five-and-a-half years. Most telling to me is his admission that there is not a single time in his life that he sought the forgiveness of God. Beware of false prophets. I will not go quiet when this cancer on conservatism threatens to metastasize into a movement of mean-spirited politics that will send the Republican Party to the same place it sent the Whig Party in 1854: the graveyard."

Dec 14: Michael Flynn deletes his fake news Nov 2 twitter story that caused a gunman to go to a pizza restaurant in Washington, DC and fire several rounds from a handgun over FAKE story that child sex trafficking was going on. Trump and his team repeatedly incite violence.

Dec 14: Trump meets with tech titans, eg Apple and Amazon, BUT did not allow Twitter in the room. The company that enabled his election, but shunned because Trump did not like their emoji policy of not allowing Trumps symbol for 'crooked Hillary'. Lame.

Dec 14: Trump's sons, Don Jr. and Eric, started a 'non profit' tax exempt charity to sell access to the President. For million-dollar payments, The Opening Day sells access. For $1 million, you are called 'Bald Eagle'. For $500,000, you are called 'Grizzly Bear'. For $250,000, you are called 'Elk'. And so on. The cheapest, for $25,000, you are called 'Wild Turkey'. The best corruption money can buy.

Dec 15: The soon-to-be! President of the United States is at it again, trashing the media over trivia. His scorn of the day is Vanity Fair for not liking food at one of his restaurants, claiming that they are going out of business themselves. Trump The Absurd. (In response, Vanity Fair headlined on its web site, "The magazine Trump doesn’t want you to read. Subscribe now!" Massive subscriptions to the magazine have broken records.)

Dec 19: Trump selects Vincent Viola, owner of the Florida Panthers hockey team(high frequency stock trader before that, just the kind of activity that slams the stock market) for Secretary of the Navy. Great qualifications, not.

Dec 19: Newt Gingrich recommends Trump pardons anyone in his administration who breaks the law, noting Ivanka Trump and husband Jared as examples. When Nixon tried this, he was removed from the Presidency. Gingrich wants Congress to change ethics rules for Trump (because he violates so many).

Dec 20: Pentagon announces that Trump has no plans pertaining to Russia and its threats against the US, which have heightened significantly after Putin diverted the election toward his protege, Trump.

Dec 20: Trump says to take what he says symbolically, not literally, whatever hogwash that means other than running away from the campaign promises that got him elected (combined with Vladimir Putin's and James Comey's assists). Dec 21, Trump says that he no longer plans to "drain the swamp." This has been obvious ever since election based on his Cabinet choices. With Trump, corruption and greed will rule.

Dec 20: It was revealed that Trump's National Security Advisor met a few weeks ago with the leader of a far-right Austrian political party that was founded by former Nazis after it signed a cooperation agreement with Russia’s ruling party.

Dec 21: Trump says he will hide his businesses in a "half blind trust." More BS and another corruption strategy.

Dec 21: Trump says (in his 85 second press conference, the first in several months) that he was 100% right to ban Muslims from the US, still promised on his web site, and doing so would have prevented the recent attacks in Turkey (primarily a Muslim country) and Germany. Trump rationality at its best. Trump says he still plans on mandating a Muslim registry in the US, yet another violation of the US Constitution. Bigots don't care.

Dec 21: Trump surrogates Corey Lewandowski and Barry Bennett started a lobbying firm, Avenue Strategies, to lobby Trump. Their sole office is a half block from the White House. Cozy, don't even need a cab. For example, Lewandowski arranged the meeting between Mexican telecom billionaire Carlos Slim and Trump over dinner this past Saturday at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, about 10 days after Lewandowski’s visit with Slim. Lewandowski says that Trump's promise of "draining the swamp" is at the bottom of his priorities. The corrupt gold rush continues. Swamp pollution worsens.

Dec 22: Again, Trump and Putin agree, let's revive the nuclear arms race. The world needs more and better nuclear weapons to end the world. Trump: "The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes."Trump also wants Japan and Saudi Arabia to get nuclear weapons. Putin: "We need to strengthen the military potential of strategic nuclear forces, especially with missile complexes that can reliably penetrate any existing and prospective missile defense systems." Of the many shortages in the world, nuclear weapons is not one of them except for Trump and Putin. They are green-lighting nuclear proliferation in North Korea, Iran and China. In Trump and Putin there is a shortage of common sense and decency.

Dec 22: During the campaign, Trump praised Saddam Hussein. Today, his daughter praised Trump.

Dec 23: Putin said, “Nobody believed he would win except for us." Trump praised him in return. Such good friends dictators can be. They can't wait for a new arms race to expand their nuclear arsenals to destroy the world even better, and make billions of dollars from their citizens.

Dec 23: Trump spokesperson calls for death to President Obama and about First Lady Michelle Obama said, "I’d like her to return to being a male and let loose in the outback of Zimbabwe where she lives comfortable in a cave with Maxie, the gorilla." Trump is so inspirational to his supporters, but harmful to everyone.

Dec 24: Trump claims he will terminate his 'charity foundation', the one he donated merely $10,000 over the past 10 years though brags that he donated "millions." Trump used this illegal charity to pay himself, pay his personal bills and purchase political/community power. Nov 22: Trump reported to the IRS that his charity performed numerous illegal acts of self dealing. Trump admitted that he broke the law. "To avoid even the appearance of any conflict with my role as President I have decided to continue to pursue my strong interest in philanthropy in other ways," Trump said in his statement. (notably, the conflicts are billions of times greater with his international corporate empire already selling favors to foreign governments in exchange for personal profit; this is a clear violation of the US Constitution) The New York Attorney General says that Trump cannot legally terminate the foundation because New York's criminal investigation remains underway.

Dec 25: Celebrating the birth of Jesus, Trump's Republican National Committee praised Donald Trump for being the "new king," superseding Jesus. (during the campaign, Trump often compared his book The Art of the Deal (written by someone else) to the Bible)

Dec 29: Trump says move on, there's nothing to see here, let Russia and Putin alone, they are my friends, you aren't. The You: sanctions levied against Russia today for interfering the the US presidential election in favor of Trump, a Department of Homeland Security/FBI joint report issued today concluding the espionage by Russia against the US in favor of Trump, diverse Senators confirming and outraged by Russia's cyber war against the US, endorsing Obama's sanctions as a good start. BUT, Trump was the beneficiary and he enjoys working for Putin so wants everyone to 'forget about it'. Trump says it's stupid to sanction Russia for its getting him elected President. Praising Putin today, Trump said, "I always knew he was very smart." Trump praises America's greatest adversary to weaken democracy. We can count on Trump to be shameful and anti-American.

Dec 31: Trump wished Happy New Year to his enemies and haters and losers regarding his egregious defamatory campaign, all of whom are Americans, but praises Vladimir Putin. Trump continues to degrade national intelligence officials, again all of whom are Americans, in favor of Russia. Trump bragged that he knows things about hacking that no one outside of Russia knows and that he will reveal the mysteries January 3 or 4. Trump especially despises, like Russia, the CIA/FBI/NSA who, Trump and Putin insist get big things wrong, eg blaming these organizations for being over-ruled by President George Bush regarding the Iraq War. He cannot justify any criticism or sanctions against Russia; Putin's invasion and annexation of territory in Europe, harassing NATO assets, destabilizing proxy wars, and espionage in US are nothing serious to Trump. Trump is a traitor.

2017

Jan 1: Progress report. Essentially, none. Trump remains the biggest know-it-all, biggest clown, biggest bigot, biggest ego, biggest fraud, biggest threat against the US, biggest liar and biggest traitor in the world. Trump redefines the past with lies and will use lies to distort the present and future. Trump hates the free press, but is addicted to the media to boost his ego like an addict who keeps shooting up with heroine or smoking crack. Trump prefers Twitter because no one challenges his lies this way, and he can barely speak more than 140 characters without strings of repetition. He epitomizes everything wrong in governance.

Jan 2: Two days after Trump promised that he would reveal what no one else knows about hacking of the Democratic Party and Hillary Clinton's campaign chief (determined to be Russia by CIA/FBI/NSA/DNI and top Republican leaders in Congress), Trump announced: 1. through Sean Spicer, Trump's and Putin's White House Press Secretary, that there is no evidence of Russia's hacking (meaning that CIA/FBI/NSA/DNI and Republican leaders in Congress are lying) and 2. through Trump surrogate Rep. Steve King that CIA/FBI/NSA/DNI were the hackers, not Russia. Trump says there is no evidence against Russia but evidence that the US national intelligence community and Republican leaders in Congress were the perpetrators. Trump is now accusing US national intelligence agencies and Republican leaders in Congress with crimes and treason. This is how close Trump is with Russia, that he fabricates serious crimes against US national intelligence agencies. Trump will defend Russia and his business with Russia rather than accept US intelligence and Congressional assessment. Trump is corrupt, collaborating with Russia against the US and has convinced tens of millions of Americans to help destroy the United States for Trump's greed. Already, his greed is putting American lives and morale in danger, preferring Russia and its agents (eg, Julian Assange) over thousands of US national security experts.

Jan 4: Trump lied again, yet to tell the truth. This time, he bragged he would reveal secrets only he knows Jan 3 or 4, not national intelligence agencies or computer experts, that Russia did not hack the election for Trump. As he would say to prove his manhood in other contexts, "not going to happen." Trump is doing everything he can to exonerate Russia, including siding with Julians Assange, Wikileaks owner, and against US national intelligence agencies. (Assange specializes in publishing stolen documents, including stolen national security documents. In 2010, Trump wanted the death penalty for Assange, but this is before Assange helped Russia get Trump the presidency. Now, Trump sees Assange as more credible than 17 US national intelligence agencies and virtually all Senators and Representatives.) (Separately, Sarah Palin apologized to Assange for criticizing him in the past for publishing stolen national security documents. Trump supporters prefer enemies to the US over US citizens and national security professionals.)

Jan 5: While Trump claimed repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act on 'day one', now he says no changes to 'Obamacare' until after the 2018 elections. Trump lies keep rolling in.

Jan 5: Another Trump lie. Trump wants US to pay for 'Mexican wall', not Mexico; working with Congress to put the costs into US budget.

Jan 6: Trump demands that all US Ambassadors resign by January 20, creating the biggest void in international relations in US history that will last months (at least).

Jan 6: The national security unclassified report was released. A Russian covert operation designed to undermine American democracy evolved into an attempt to help Donald Trump win, according to the declassified version of a long-awaited intelligence report released Friday. "We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election. Russia's goals were to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump." Trump effectively dismisses the report and work of thousands of national security officers, calling their work a "political witch hunt." Moreover, Trump insists that US national security agencies be investigated for their PUBLIC report. Trump is not calling for investigation into Russia's role and collaboration with Trump to interfere with the election for Trump.

Jan 8: Trump whining that he doesn't get the respect he deserves. Trump respects no one and is the world's most famous bigot, sexist, racist, insulter, dictator admirer, con artist, liar, anti-American and more. Trump hides his conflicts of interest and grossly misrepresents his business success and skills. He claims to know more than US military, national security, congressional and judicial leaders. Like his partner Russia, Trump despises the free press. He has reduced the stature of the US in the world recognizing that Russia tilted the presidential election of the largest democracy in the world. Ethics and morality are no where to be found in Trump. What is there to like in Trump? Does Trump respect himself? Cheating braggards do not.

Jan 9: Trump gives son-in-law a job, Senior Advisor to work in the White House. So what nepotism is illegal.

Jan 9: Trump had breaking news today, very high on his priority list. Trump says there are no inauguration gowns left in Washington, DC. Never mind that most would have them or purchase in their home city. Alas, yet another Trump lie. There are plenty of gowns to be found in DC. The pathological liar strikes again.

Jan 9: Trump lies again, saying Meryl Streep is an over-rated actor. She has 30 nominations from Hollywood Foreign Press (Jack Lemon had 22). She won the Golden Globes 8 times, more than anyone else. She has 19 Academy Awards nominations, the most nominated in history. She won 3 Academy Awards. She has 16 Screen Actors Guilds awards, 11 Critics Choice Awards, 4 major Lifetime Achievement Awards, and more. Trump has zero, though has 3 wives, wanted to date his daughter and grabbed many women's genitals.

Jan 11: Again and again, Trump and Putin release coordinated responses to news about their collaborations to win the US Presidency. They use each other as references for their 'reliability'. They, the two most infamous purveyors, claim today within a couple hours of each other that national intelligence findings regarding the collaboration is 'fake news' and a US national intelligence agency conspiracy. For the first time in US history, the US has two Presidents, one the front man, the other in the dark shadows.

Jan 11: A psychotic display and Trump business infomercial, Trump held first news conference since July 2016 (whereat he urged expanded Russian hacking of Democrat computers and Wikileaks releases to aid his election; when they did, he said, "I love Wikileaks."). He attacked the media, called US intelligence officials Nazis, and showed off stacks of papers that he alleged proved that he was separating himself from his hundreds of businesses (of course, they did not AND he refused to let anyone look at the supposed documents, which could have been blank; the Office of Government Ethics said that Trump fell short). Falsely, he claimed that he was not briefed about Russia's collection of information about him (about the news of the day, a 35 page dossier, Trump claimed that the CIA leaked it to the press; however, it is most likely that Trump leaked it to the press). He, the king of fake news and disinformation for decades (going national with his 'huge' birther campaign against President Obama, claimed that Russia's meddling into the election was fake news and that CNN specialized in fake news and in response refuse to answer a CNN question at the news conference (although briefly, he acknowledged that they did interfere). Expectedly, Trump continued to lie about his tax returns, including that Nelson Rockefeller did not disclose his tax returns (false, and Rockefeller was not a presidential candidate). Trump says the US intelligence agencies are incompetent and corrupt and calls them Nazis. Trump prefers Russia's fake news because he helps create it. He admires Vladimir Putin. With these castigations and preferences Trump criticizes Nato and Muslims and thusly is making the US less safe. Trump is making Russia, North Korea, China, Iran and terrorists very happy. (lesser news today, Trump said that the pharmaceutical industry is "getting away with murder.")

Jan 13: Now that they got their US President, Trump, a group of Russian hackers said they are quitting their hacking.

Jan 13: Trump unleashed more attacks on US national security. Trump is accumulating many lies about what his national intelligence briefings contained, eg Trump claims that he was not briefed on certain matters one week ago, just the opposite of what FBI Director James Comey says. Trump is enjoying sowing disrespect for US national intelligence agencies just as he sowed disrespect for US military leadership during the campaign. Russia is so pleased. Putin is getting far more than what he paid for. Trump is America's leading enemy.

Jan 13: Though Trump demonized them as corrupt during the campaign, Trump hired his 6th millionaire from Goldman Sachs, today's pick a hedge fund owner (the leading investment type that caused the massive economic collapse fixed by Obama). Trump plans to remove protective laws and regulations too. Looks like another massive economic collapse is in our future. Trump continues to pollute the swamp.

Jan 13: While Trump bragged about hating torture, and worse, during the campaign, several of Trump's cabinet choices vehemently oppose it and will not obey such promised Trump orders (most importantly, DOD Secretary, Attorney General, Director of National Intelligence and CIA Director).

Jan 13: While Trump praised FBI Director James Comey for getting him elected, the Wall Street Journal called for his resignation for his corruption. Trump slammed the FBI Inspector General's probe into Comey.

Jan 13: During the campaign, economists rated Trump one of the top 10 risks to the world economy. Today, Human Rights Watch rated Trump a significant threat to human rights in 697-page report. Report title... World Report 2017: Demagogues Threaten Human Rights: Trump, European Populists Foster Bigotry, Discrimination.

Jan 14: Demonstrating his preference for Putin and racism in a new way of rich white guys trivializing the Black American experience, 2 days before Martin Luther King Jr. day. Trump yelled at Rep. John Lewis, civil rights icon, for not attending the inauguration because Trump was elected illegitimately with Russia's tilting the election to Trump. "All talk, no action," Trump barked. Rep Lewis responded, "I’ve been beaten, bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what’s right for America. I’ve marched at Selma with Dr. King. Sometimes that’s what it takes to move our country in the right direction. We’re not done fighting for progress. We’re ready for the next four years. We had to sit in. We had to stand in. We had to march. And that’s why more than 50 years ago, a group of unarmed citizens, black and white, gathered on March 7, 1965, in an orderly peaceful non-violent fashion to walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama. Often, the only way we could demonstrate that a law on the books violated a higher law was by challenging that law. By putting our bodies on the line and showing the world the unholy price we had to pay for dignity and respect. We need leaders who will stand up and speak up and speak out for Americans, not someone who will work against us. Not someone who will move us backwards. I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected." Trivial according to Trump, who never rises to helping others. Showing further disdain for Rep. Lewis and African Americans, Trump decided not to visit National Museum of African American History and Culture on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Unquestionably, Trump was elected illegitimately based on lies, fake news and Russia's controls on democracy.

Jan 14: Trump to meet Vladimir Putin as his first road trip as President. Party time. They have to conjure more fake news to keep Trump in office and help ward off impeachment.

Jan 15: Trump will replace the closing Ringling Brothers/Barnum & Bailey circus. The Greatest Show on Earth replaced by a bigot.

Jan 15: Trump want drug testing of journalists. "Journalists who are at the White House more than one day per week should be subject to drug screenings to occur no more than twice a year at random times. Refusal to comply should exclude them from credentialing entirely."

Jan 15: Trump says NATO is obsolete, music to best friend Putin. Trump wants breakdown in relations with NATO that have existed since WWII. So when China enters its threatened "large scale war" with the US and Russia takes advantage of NATO weakening because of Trump, the US will lose big time, and no longer lead the world.

Jan 16: Another day, another lie, this time a violation of US Constitution. Trump promised at his Jan 11 news conference that he will no longer do 'deals' in foreign countries. But, necessitating approvals/gifts from the Scottish government, Trump is expanding his business in Scotland with a new golf course and 450-room hotel.

Jan 16: Progress report. All negative. Trump consistently shows how small he is...a spoiled brat who wants all the marbles and hates that anyone has any. Everything is about his small and dim view. Diaper change remedy? Trump says that America's largest and most vital ally is obsolete AND that US national intelligence is corrupt, pleasing Putin immensely, expands his feuds with the constitutional free press and civil rights leaders, rolls out lies daily, violates the Constitution regarding his businesses, makes impossible promises, disagrees with Republican leaders and his Cabinet appointees, threatens world war with China, whines about Saturday Night Live....same old, same old. Trump is determined to ruin America.

Jan 16: Day 3 is the new Day 1. Trump says that Day 1 of his Presidency will not be inauguration day but 3 days later, not Friday Jan 20 but Monday Jan 23. Bet he calls Putin to toast their partnership against America.

Jan 17: Newsflash. Putin claims that Trump did not meet with prostitutes in Russia, even though, Putin says, Russia's prostitutes are the best in the world. It's a relief to hear this from the world's second biggest liar (Trump is the biggest).

Jan 18: Trump, the king of Twitter and lies, claims that he dislikes Twitter and lies. Over last few days, in lockstep with Putin in phrase and ideology, Trump and Putin, the king and queen of fake news, say they hate fake news. Without fake news Trump and Putin would be nowhere, certainly not Presidents.


Trump inspired people to hate and give into fear.

He glorified fake news, insults and misogyny.
