Trump, Working-Class Zero
New York Times, by Maureen Dowd

It’s not unknown, of course. 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. The Hirshhorn has a sold-out exhibit of Yayoi Kusama’s

I guess old Mo doesn´t read her own paper. Frankly, the fact that the Times had the wiretap story on it´s top, center, front page, and then 5 weeks later, went into its own archives and changed the title of the article, gives me the creeps. Although the Times tried to re-write history, luckily we have the internet.

Correcting the giant mess created over the past eight years by an America-hating, Communist-organizing, Marxist, Muzlim Mallard isn´t easy, unlike drinking gin and mindlessly snipping at him to please your disingenuous colleagues in the Noose Media.

Imagine living full time in the world of the Liberalism is a Mental Disorder gang. A nightmare continuation of the past 8 years of Marxist communist rule. That´s where we would be if Donald J. Trump had not won the Presidency.

Maybe it me but I sure do love to see the left chewing off their own arm trying to get rid of this president. Fortunately, President Trump is here to stay and I have longed for every change he has made thus far. Some of us have suffered in just as much anguish as we watched reed and chuckie steamroll half of the American people (the deplorable). And, the dessert for me is know that the rules of the Senate were changed by the left to make way for all these wonderful changes. Having family in West Virginia, I see the miners now losing their very modest homes as they reel from the loss of their incomes due to "obama" an nancy and reed. Yes I deliberately fought the spell correct to not capitalize certain names .

LEWISTON, Maine — Richard Rodrigue stood in the back of a banquet hall, watching his blond-haired, blue-eyed daughter mingle among her high school classmates. These teenagers speak dozens of languages, and hail from a dozen African nations. They fled brutal civil war, famine, oppressive regimes to find themselves here, at a pre-prom fete in this once-dying New England mill town, revived by an influx of some 7,500 immigrants over the last 16 years. Rodrigue smiled and waved at his daughter, proud she is a part of it. "It will help her in life," he said. "The world is not all




Trump administration says lax

violent gangs like MS-13
Los Angeles Times, by Joseph Tanfani    Original Article

Led by President Trump, top administration officials on Tuesday blamed what they called lax immigration enforcement for the rise of MS-13, the bloody crime cartel spawned in the streets and jails of Los Angeles, and promised a stronger federal response. Tweeting before dawn, Trump called his predecessor weak on illegal immigration and said, without evidence, that the Obama administration “allowed” the Mara Salvatrucha gang, also known as MS-13, to form in America. “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!” the president wrote on Twitter

The Trump administration came into power facing vexing foreign policy challenges ranging from a decaying global order to transnational terrorism. These problems are compounded by the fact that Americans are weary after decades of war in distant corners of the Middle East. To succeed, the administration has to balance competing imperatives: reaffirming alliances, engaging in transactional bargains with other great powers, and relentlessly pushing back on adversaries. Despite all the sound and fury, the Trump team is already demonstrating an ability to master these complex challenges in difficult times. The Democratic

Amid reports that Fox News is getting ready to announce Bill O’Reilly won’t be returning to the airwaves, Matt Drudge has taken to his seldom-used Twitter. Seemingly, he came to elegantly bury Caesar O’Reilly. Okay, there was a little praise, but it mostly reads like an obituary for the embattled host’s career. And when Drudge speaks on something like this, you ought to listen. [video] O’Reilly has been accused of sexual harassment and has reportedly settled with at least five women for at least $13 million. Calls for Fox to drop him have been loud and clear as physical demonstrations have happened

White House: Trump’s call to

President Donald Trump’s call congratulating Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on the referendum vote consolidating his power was not necessarily an endorsement or acceptance of the results, the White House said Tuesday. The outcome of the vote, which would amend Turkey’s constitution to grant the country’s autocratic president significantly more power, is being contested, and Trump surprised some in Washington on Monday when the White House said he had called Erdogan to congratulate him. Experts and other American leaders, including some Republicans, have responded to the vote by framing it as hugely damaging to democracy in Turkey. Speaking with reporters

Time for Trump to Triangulate

Washington is a world distorted by a magnifying glass, where minor slips morph into catastrophic falls, and a winning news cycle swells into a victory for all the ages. When overstimulation causes the jaded to speak in ever more extravagant terms, we should be careful about making mountains of molehills. That said, the Trump administration has hit some obstacles in its early weeks. It deferred many of the president’s signature policy items (on immigration and trade, for instance) in order to focus on health-care and tax reform. Some on Capitol Hill might like this outcome, as it minimizes the more



Facebook murder suspect allegedly shares

The gunman who randomly executed an elderly Cleveland resident in cold blood — and then posted footage of the killing to Facebook — was a self-described “monster” who tortured animals as a kid, a report says. Steve Stephens, 37, reportedly took his anger out on his pet parakeet while growing up, as well as other creatures that his family owned throughout his childhood. He ultimately shares an eerie similarity with serial killers, such as Jeffrey Dahmer and “Boston Strangler” Albert DeSalvo, who also abused their pets as youngsters. “That kid was not normal as we as normal people know it

Krauthammer on Trump’s Tax Returns:
This Issue Is a ‘Dead Parrot’
Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article
Posted By: Lalo- 4/18/2017 12:03:48     Post Reply
On Fox’s Special Report tonight, Charles Krauthammer said the issue of President Trump‘s tax returns is basically a “dead parrot.” Bret Baier brought up the Tax Day protests where people were demanding the returns, as well as the president’s response to them. Mara Liasson said Trump could put out his returns if he wanted to, though as Mollie Hemingway pointed out, as president, Trump’s tax returns are audited every year. When Baier asked Krauthammer if there’s any way Trump will release the returns, Krauthammer said, “Never. This issue is dead. It’s a dead parrot.” Or perhaps it’s just pining for the fjords?

LONDON — President Trump hasn’t even confirmed the exact dates for his state visit, but British politicians are already fretting — if not in an outright panic — over how to cope with the politically dicey drop-by, not least because of the protests that are likely to erupt once he arrives. Enter British Prime Minister Theresa May, who has come up with a plan: She wants to meet the president in the remote Scottish Highlands, where she could not only welcome the leader of the free world with pomp and circumstance worthy of the vaunted “special relationship,” but also keep Mr.

Panmunjom, South Korea - With North Korean soldiers standing less than 100 feet behind him at the Korean Demilitarized Zone, Vice President Mike Pence told CNN that Pyongyang should understand that the Trump administration´s approach toward the regime will be different than that of past US presidents. "We´re going to abandon the failed policy of strategic patience. But we´re going to redouble our efforts to bring diplomatic and economic pressure to bear on North Korea. Our hope is that we can resolve this issue peaceably," Pence said in an exclusive interview at the DMZ. To achieve this new strategy, the

Both the Trump administration and North Korea are ratcheting up statements about a potential conflict. “President [Donald] Trump has changed the equation. We don’t know what he will do,” said Fred Fleitz, a senior vice president for the Center for Security Policy, a conservative national security think tank. “If there is a strike, shooting down missiles would be proportional. But I don’t think we will see a strike on missile sites.” When visiting South Korea on Sunday, Vice President Mike Pence said “the era of strategic patience is over.” This came days after the North Korean state-run media asserted the country is

Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their compelling new book, “Shattered,” the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write that Clinton’s loss suddenly made sense of all the reporting they had been doing for a year and a half — reporting that had turned up all sorts of “foreboding signs” that often seemed at odds, in real time, with indications that Clinton was the favorite

No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump. In his first 12 weeks in office Trump took a staggering 18 golf course trips. That´s unheard of. In his first 12 weeks in office, President Obama didn´t visit a single golf course. By the end of this year, it´s likely that Trump will have golfed more than President Obama has in his entire presidency. And that´s strange. It´s really strange. Because Donald Trump and other conservative pundits seemed to be deeply bothered by the times President Obama went out and golfed. It appeared to genuinely offend

Would you attempt to bring someone happiness in their final moments in life, knowing full well that what you just told them was a lie? Well, one Oregon woman thought this was a good idea and, because of it, her ex-husband died with a smile on his face.

Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore says he’s “on fire” creatively in his “Easter Dinner Reflections” Facebook post. Why? It’s all about “removing a sitting president,” he says in his @mmflint Twitter promo for the Facebook commentary. Moore’s just not sure what the best media vehicle is for him to “take him down." He explains in his “Reflections”: “I think I need to make a movie. Or bring back my weekly series to TV. Or stand on a stage and howl. Or something. Or anything. Or all of it.” Moore ponders his options: "Can a simple movie actually bring down a sitting

Hillary Clinton phoned Barack Obama on election night after conceding defeat and told him: ‘I’m sorry’. The Democratic Presidential candidate stepped into an anteroom for the conversation to apologize for losing to Donald Trump in a conversation which has never previously been reported. As she took the call Clinton knew she had ‘let her country down’ and that Obama’s legacy lay ‘shattered at Donald Trump’s feet’, a new book reveals. Minutes earlier Clinton had called Trump and suppressed ‘the anger that touched every nerve in her body’ as she conceded. She said: ‘Congratulations, Donald. ‘I’ll be supportive of the country’s success and that means

By all accounts, Jared Kushner, the husband of President Trump´s favorite daughter, has become an extraordinarily powerful man in the White House. To formally appoint Kushner a senior adviser, with a top security clearance, the president sought and received a Justice Department opinion declaring the White House exempt from federal anti-nepotism laws. That meant Kushner could have an official White House title to go along with his trusted-member-of-the-family influence.
