Trump Invites Putin



An eloquent president stumbles through an incoherent set of comments before the White House Easter Egg Roll. Yet, he didn't seem to stumble related to Russia media reports he invited Putin to the White House.

 Watch a portion of his balcony address.
While Trump seems to have a problem with a reference to the White House he apparently he did a great job on his phone call to his de facto leader: "V Putin." After congratulating Putin on his electoral win (in a sham election), Trump invited the dictator to Washington DC and the White House.

Why?  My thoughts?  

Trump is a money grabber with no secondary emotions. He admires one thing on Earth and that one thing is power backed by money.  Putin is reported to be worth 270 plus billion dollars. Trump is reported to be worth 10 billion (maybe). Putin will serve as President of Russia until Russian oligarchs find him of little to no utility. Conversely, Trump will serve as US President until the nation awakens to his false reality and the dangers he poses to American Democracy.  Basically, Trump will one day (hopefully sooner than later) be out of the Oval Office with unfettered opportunity to advance his quest for money and Putin is a prime conduit for Trump's greed. 

In 2008, The New York Times reported Trump Jr commented about a family business treasure trove in Russia.  
"In terms of high-end product influx into the US, Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets," Donald Trump Jr. said at a New York real-estate conference that year. "Say, in Dubai, and certainly with our project in SoHo, and anywhere in New York. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia."
 My thought? Trump sees his future as a Putin snuggle boy.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews has an opinion on "why".

A Record Setting President (If You Listen; I Will Lie To You)



If You Listen; I Will Lie To You

Yesterday we published this piece regarding a long-term Fox News Left hating demagogue who decided to severe his relationship with the network rather than continue a life of lies and deceit. Colonel Peters was particularly useful to Fox when network producers crafted frequent anti-Presdient Obama segments. And Peters was particular useful to the vile anti-Obama Fox Business host Stuart Varney as shown in the (linked) segment. All things must end. 

While all of America knows Fox News isn't a news network in any sense.  The network is a conduit to conservative absorption of ideology comparable to current Sinclair Broadcasting's role (New Yorker Magazine; Mother Jones) in advancing Trumpism via local news networks. Fox has the nation's highest level of broadcast viewership of Americans (and some foreigners) who thrive off soaking-up lies, misinformation and deceit like a Goldfish bottom feeding remnants of a daily feeding.

Actually the Fox News mission parallels that of the White House Communications Department (including Sarah Huckabee Sanders) in serving as a conduit and rationalize of all things Trump. An existentially reality which carries a burden of covering for what follows in the video (below).  A President of the United States whose first thought is to always lie while also suffering from a chronic aversion to admitting lies once the lie is exposed as such.

Subversion By Any Definition (No Orders To Counter Putin?)



The United States has plunged into an abyss of national disgrace and seeming efforts by the president which come very close to appearing subversive.

While we avoid words such as treason due to the specific definition of the word..... 
ˈ
trea·son
ˈtrēzən/
noun
  1. the crime of betraying one's country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government.

No, "treason" doesn't fit Tumpism and the nation's 45th president.  The word "subversive" is yet another story. 

sub·ver·sive
səbˈvərsiv/
adjective
adjective: subversive
  1. 1.
    seeking or intended to subvert an established system or institution.
Subversive definition and meaning | Collins English DictionarySomething that is subversive is intended to weaken or destroy a political system or government. Subversives are people who attempt to weaken or destroy a political system or government.


Let's diminish the word intentional regarding Trump; and think in terms of an unwitting partner or partner in subversion via extortion, bullying, or subversive partnership to avoid the release of something (information, pictures, tapes etc.) In either construct, subversion is subversion regardless of impetus to subvert or consequence of subverting partners. 

Now, how about the possible consequences of subversion in any form. The Director of the National Security Agency sat before a congressional hearing earlier today. His agency has the wherewithal and responsibility to combat external threats in the realm of Signal intelligence (SIGINT), or electronic intelligence (ELINT). He is the person who heads the agency and powerful tools and wherewithal to combat Putin's election meddling. 

After viewing even brief snippets of his testimony, one should wonder how he defines "subversive."  We offer two very brief segments from his morning with the US Senatorial INTEL Committee. 

It appears Trump hasn't directed the NSA Chief to take countermeasures against Putin Cyber army.



After a morning of testimony captured by the very brief clips, this is what the national press corp received from Trump's Press Secretary (number one presstitute). 
“Look, this president as I told you last week has been much tougher on Russia than his predecessor. Let’s not forget that this happened under Obama,” she said.
The Great Con has grave consequences. Your reality TV Show replete with its cast of Trump and company is an international danger and it is no longer funny nor healthy.

SHUTDOWN USA; Trump's Past Rhetoric





Image result for trump shutdown

US Federal Government Shutdown.  The first in US History when the Executive and legislative branches of government are of one party.  That speaks to the incompetence of government.

But how did carnival barking Trump handle past shutdown prospects?

Fox News
Snopes also published a finding regarding Trump's past barking.

Carnival barker and leadership incompetence.
