Here's a theory regarding the Brust letter.
DT never expected/wanted to be Pres. He obviously never knew much about it the way he has acted. One would usually look into a job you are trying for before you actually try to get it. Not in DT's case.
He ran for, and now is the Presidency. All he really wanted is to make a lot of money on the whole thing. We are finding out, the more we look into his businesses, that he is entangled all over the world. Most of them seem to be shady deals with some pretty unsavory charactors. If he is ever forced to show his tax returns, it would be it's own "little shop of horrors". I think he'll resign before that happens.
One would be hard pressed to find worse choices for most of his Cabinet appointments. Carson, Pruitt, DeVos, et.al. But he didn't care because he's not planning on lasting out the year. His foil may be the spineless GOP who have such power needs to fill that what is best for America takes a back seat to the corporate sponsors that pay their way. They may keep him in office until they have fulfilled their unpatriotic promises to Big Oil/Pharm and the military suppliers. And to accomplish this, they expect to take away as many voting rights as possible. And all those rights that women have strived so long to attain? Sorry, collaterral damage.
So keep talking "fake news" so enough people believe long enough until the truth finally shows it's ugly head.
Well written, Steve. But by your creds, it is to be expected.
When your POTUS lies about 77% of the time and the press rebuts those lies, it is not "fake news". It is journalism. When FOX News either defends the lies or never mentions them, that is fake news (no quotes needed).
Space does not allow the listing of the lies, just since Jan. 2oth, let alone the campaign.
When your news comes only from FOX, Breitbart, Alex Jones, David Duke and the like, you're living in a "fake reality". Yes, there are left wing news outlets but overall the majority are professional organizations that want the truth to be written. If your side of the story has no provable basis, you're on the wrong side of the argument.
This president and his band of syncophants fit that bill quite well.
Ken M.....PEW @ 39 and Gallup @ 41
Rest of the world? Very nervous.
Fred, Ken, Dan, Scott,et.al. Listen to DT's latest press conference. The ranting, gibberish, blaming, meandering, self-congrats, the third grade English. The way he treats people is horrible. Sec State Tillerson was not allowed his choice of undersecretary because Abramson had made bad comments of DT. The Sec of State was not told of the immigration ban or the Yemen raid. The Sec of State! There are departments that are draining from people quitting and no one is replacing them. Soon it will be Bannon and the son-in-law and the raving looney Miller only. Flynn's replacement said No. This doesn't worry any of you? DT claims the best El. College victory since RR. It was the worst. He's delusional. There is no other explanation. It's a "fine tuned" first 3 weeks? Yeah, right.
Ken M. Read your piece. Did not know about that. But there doesn't seem to be much comparison to me. It was done in an effort to deal with Hamas in Egypt to try and get a working relationship going. Way different than Flynn and Putin and who knows who else. And the depth of the cover-up seems to pale in comparison to what's going on now. And we've barely scratched the surface.
Ken M, forget 401s for a bit. Dan K, forget policies that we can't effect. Fred, Burns is as dead as Dredd Scott. How about addressing the elephant and the 800lb gorilla. Flynn. And now how the administration has known for weeks or probably months about his dealing with Russion officials. And the FBI, CIA and the USAG warning that they have tapes of the conversations. These are possibly/probably bigger than any scandal we have ever witnessed, especially concerning national security. And now Chaffetz, the dog who could only smell Benghazi, and Sessions, who won't recuse himself from Trump investigations, and spineless Ryan and McConnel have all decided it's not worth chasing. Just curious. What have you to toss out on this bump in the road?
Fred quotes a comedian and Ken M show the shallowness of greed. I doubt GB would approve of DT and the DOW means nothing to a vast majority of Americans.
But the dishonesty of so many in the T circle is breathtaking, in a bad way.
Watergate, Whitewater, Lewinsky and Bengahzi all pale in comparison to the possible/probable damage Flyn and others are involved in. We now know Trump knew this for at least a couple of weeks. Say nothing about a dangerous event until it becomes public. That's quite a mission statement for a presidential administration. Hope you're proud of all these patriotic folks.
We "got over it" after 2000 when hundreds of thousands were killed and maimed from 2 unnecessary wars. Don't even think of asking millions of Americans to do it again.
Think I'm mad? What right thinking person wouldn't be?
Move forward. Give him a chance.
After 3 weeks it's obvious that isn't a wise idea. Flynn leaves and the Ethics Chair says "Nothing here to see. Let's move on." BS. That same joke of a Senator raked Hillary over the coals for months and spent millions of dollars and found nothing. Flynn compromised our security and who knows who else was involved, when they knew it and how long they covered it up. Including the president, small p! You Trump backers would go ballistic if it was the other way around. Trump went out of his way to pick some of the worst people to be his cabinat. And the new mouth on the scene, S Miller scares the crap out most sane Americans after his rants Sunday morning. The creep threatened the country to question the 100% right president, small p.
If you backed Trump, you backed the most unqualified candidate in our lives. You also backed a liar with no equals, a mysoginist, a 6 time bankrupter screwing 1000's of workers, a know-nothing Constitutionalist, a tax evader, and the list goes on. We are seeing the respect of the world go down the drain. We are the laughingstock of the world now. They fear us not out of power but out of our leader's ignorance. He signs Ex. Orders and doesn't even know what they say. He has white supremicists at the top of his cabal. He kisses the behinds of the oil industry.
Give him a chance? I'd like like to give him the 25th Amendment. Of course, he doesn't even know there is one.
So Perry can open up, with Pruitt's help, our Natl Parks for developement since the price of oil is so high...oh wait, that's the problem.
DeVos wants our schools to teach "the Kingdom of God"?
Get rid of the EPA and let's let the climate change get here faster.
Breitbart is a racist org.
MSM = far left? Most of America gets their news from FOX. Wouldn't that make it MSM? Three studies have shown FOX viewers are the least fact informed of all viewers AND non viewers of news.
And now we are about to start a ground war with.....Nordstroms. (Her stuff wasn't selling. I'd think free enterprise would explain dropping a line in that case. We still believe in that don't we?)
25th Amendment within a year?
Nobody seems to be answering the question of Bannon and his white supremist background. Or the clueless Rick Perry. Or DeVos who wants to get rid of public schools in favor of "Kingdom of God" education. Or the fact, not alternative fact, that Trump lies about every other sentence and can be proved wrong by simply playing a news video. How many lies before you folks call "Too many"? Is there a limit? Is it good to have a real estate mogul on the NSC and not the Jnt Chief guy or the Intel guy? The EPA guy is a disaster in the making unless you don't believe science.
And please, don't go into the all politicians lie. It's the quantity that is so obscene here. Answer these specific points without trying to compare past administrations.
