I hope he let people behind him play through.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Another Trump tweet storm today, maybe the rumour is true that Mueller will indict another one from his inner circle before month end!

I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People!

It's almost impossible to read his Tweets without hearing it in his whiny "poor me" voice.

The news from the Financial Markets is even better than anticipated. For all of you that have made a fortune in the markets, or seen your 401k’s rise beyond your wildest expectations, more good news is coming!

1:20 PM - 30 Aug 2018
Ironically this good news has seen all US stock futures turn negative today!

I am very excited about the person who will be taking the place of Don McGahn as White House Councel! I liked Don, but he was NOT responsible for me not firing Bob Mueller or Jeff Sessions. So much Fake Reporting and Fake News!

2:12 PM - 30 Aug 2018
He still cannot spell Counsel!

Wonder who is dumb enough to take this job? Maybe nobody

White House Counsel Don McGahn will be leaving his position in the fall, shortly after the confirmation (hopefully) of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the United States Supreme Court.
I have worked with Don for a long time and truly appreciate his service!

Ivanka Trump & Jared Kushner had NOTHING to do with the so called “pushing out” of Don McGahn.The Fake News Media has it, purposely,so wrong! They love to portray chaos in the White House when they know that chaos doesn’t exist-just a “smooth running machine” with changing parts!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump tries to force the hand of the free press, in the most blatant way possible.

This is Trump musing (not for the first time) "Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?"

That's what despots and dictators do. Not "leaders of the free world".

Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks - with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse.
When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly!
More than a year after Donald Trump told Lester Holt that he fired FBI Director James Comey with the Russia investigation in mind, the president accused the NBC News anchor of “fudging” their interview.

Frightening thing is that Trump's base will believe this cr#p!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Update on a few of the Trump Administration's amoral policies targeting black and brown people.

Child Separation Policy - Source
Quote:
More than a month after a court deadline passed for the government to reunite families divided by President Trump’s border crackdown, nearly 500 children remain in U.S. government-funded shelters without their parents, according to court papers filed Thursday night.

Advocates and government officials say it could be weeks, months or longer before they are together.

Nearly two-thirds of the 497 minors still in custody — including 22 “tender-age” children, who are younger than 5 — have parents who were deported, mostly in the first weeks of Trump’s “zero-tolerance” policy.
Deportation into Slavery - Source
Quote:
The West African nation of Mauritania is known for its poets, for its reserves of gold — and for its failure to take meaningful action to curtail the pervasive practice of modern slaveholding. Tens of thousands of people there, especially women and children, are believed to be in bondage, which explains why undocumented Mauritanians living in the United States have seldom been deported in the past — because doing so would mean enslavement and even torture for many of them.

That seems not to concern the Trump administration’s deportation agents, who, in a stark departure from past practice, have sent back dozens of Mauritanians to a likely future in bondage. In many cases, the deportees have lived in the United States for many years, during which they were merely required to check in periodically with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
Denying / Voiding Passports for Hispanic Americans with US Birth Certificates - Source
Quote:
PHARR, Tex. — On paper, he’s a devoted U.S. citizen.

His official American birth certificate shows he was delivered by a midwife in Brownsville, at the southern tip of Texas. He spent his life wearing American uniforms: three years as a private in the Army, then as a cadet in the Border Patrol and now as a state prison guard.

But when Juan, 40, applied to renew his U.S. passport this year, the government’s response floored him. In a letter, the State Department said it didn’t believe he was an American citizen.

As he would later learn, Juan is one of a growing number of people whose official birth records show they were born in the United States but who are now being denied passports — their citizenship suddenly thrown into question. The Trump administration is accusing hundreds, and possibly thousands, of Hispanics along the border of using fraudulent birth certificates since they were babies, and it is undertaking a widespread crackdown.
This crackdown started initially in Bush's Presidency and was justified by a few fraudulent midwives ~30 years ago. It was effectively resolved a few months into the Obama administration when they reached an agreement for a quick verification process with the ACLU. The Trump admin is now liberally accusing large swaths (100s to 1000s, the total is not yet confirmed) of the Hispanics born in the area and making it virtually impossible for them to prove their case. If your birth certificate, army ID, drivers license, social security card, etc. are all considered insufficient, how the hell do you prove your citizenship? Birtherism is now federal policy...

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

A former associate of Paul Manafort, W. Samuel Patten, has been charged by Special Counsel Mueller with failing to register as a foreign agent in the United States.

Rumours are he had a nearly two-decade-long friendship and business relationship with suspected Russian intelligence agent Konstantin Kilimnik, also that he was a Cambridge Analytica contractor. Cambridge Analytica was the firm used by the Trump campaign that exploited the personal Facebook data of millions.

The same rumour mongers are also plugging the fact that two of Trump's favourite targets, Andy McCabe ex-FBI and Bruce Ohr DOJ, are experts on the Russian Mafia; how that may be relevant I do not know?

It is also rumoured Patten will plead guilty which implies he is cooperating with the Special Counsel Mueller.

Trump supporting white supremacists again

Latest to be banned by Facebook was Alex Jones and his Infowars media business who spread conspiracy theories like the left-wing faking of the Sandy Hook massacre where 26 children and adults were killed at the elementary school in Connecticut.

Now also banned for a week by Twitter due to a link to a video calling for supporters to get their “battle rifles” ready against media and others.

Quote:
Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices. Speaking loudly and clearly for the Trump Administration, we won’t let that happen.
They are closing down the opinions of many people on the RIGHT, while at the same time doing nothing to others .
Censorship is a very dangerous thing & absolutely impossible to police.
If you are weeding out Fake News, there is nothing so Fake as CNN & MSNBC, & yet I do not ask that their sick behavior be removed.

I get used to it and watch with a grain of salt, or don’t watch at all
Too many voices are being destroyed, some good & some bad, and that cannot be allowed to happen.
Who is making the choices, because I can already tell you that too many mistakes are being made.
Let everybody participate, good & bad, and we will all just have to figure it out!
I assume Trump is concerned about being banned himself as he has crossed a number of Twitter red lines
According to this media source Trump's new concern about "Social Media is totally discriminating against Republican/Conservative voices." is because he is currently losing a lot of social media followers. Whether it is just him who is losing support or a general loss of interest in social media is not known.

Patten's case was referred by Mueller to prosecutors in the U.S. attorney's office in D.C.
He pleaded guilty Friday to the foreign lobbying charge and is now cooperating with government prosecutors, though the extent or nature of that cooperation remains unclear.

Certainly Trump seems respectful towards Putin!

And meanwhile as it is Friday

Quote:
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said Thursday that President Trump's transformation from a Democrat to a Republican can be attributed to the network.

"Trump was radicalized by something," Gutfeld said. "He was a Democrat for a long time. He was fairly — he was pro-choice, liberal."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Disapproval of Donald Trump is at a new high, support for the Mueller investigation is broad and half of Americans in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll favor Congress initiating impeachment proceedings against the president.

Source

The ABC News/Washington Post poll usually shows low numbers for Trump but these are extra low!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Quote:
The Trump administration and Canada failed to come to an agreement on the president's bilateral trade deal with Mexico Friday, prompting the White House to submit the deal to Congress without Canada even while planning to continue talks between the two countries.

"Today the president notified the Congress of his intent to sign a trade agreement with Mexico -- and Canada, if it is willing -- 90 days from now,"
Source

Difficult to forecast what Congress will do with this!
I believe they will not start to draft a Bill before the agreement is final and while talks continue with Canada then nothing is final.
There is also the uncomfortable fact that Congress gave Trump permission to renegotiate NAFTA not a bilateral agreement with Mexico, presumably Trump is hoping to bully his way through?

Anyway if Dems succeed in midterms then anything could happen?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Talking about censorship of Conservative sites look what I got when I tried to see what Spanky tweeted recently, see picture below.

I do not even use Avast
Seems to be somehow related to my Chrome browser, when I look at this site with Microsoft Edge then there is no Avast warning.

I could not find anyway to turn off the pop up window; I did not want to click "get me out of here" as I have no idea who or what is behind this, no evidence it is really Avast?
My own anti virus did not show any problem with this site!
