    We know Trump has been called “litigious,” to say the least. We know he’s run his personal for-profit endeavors into bankruptcy, many times. Looks like he’s doing this now in every matter – or threatening it – WITH OUR TAXPAYER DOLLARS and TO OUR DETRIMENT. Can’t even imagine how much federal and state taxpayer dollars are going into not just this one court case, but all the others around the country now and down the road.

    Bringing over this tweet from NCLB’s comment from the last post….

    https://twitter.com/jbarro/status/829065493151621121

    I believe much of the self-inflicted crises are deliberate to distract us from the fact that DJT — and his cronies — are financially benefiting from his presidency. I resent that his companies (Trump Towers, Mar-a-Lago, etc) are being paid millions under the guise of security costs for him and his family. People are being put in cabinet positions where they can stop enforcing regulations (that aren’t changed via EO’s and GOP legislation) that would benefit their pockets, while being detrimental to the people Trump promised to help.

    The media, predictably, is chasing every alt-fact — LIE — coming from this WH, without any long-term focus on any one thing. You would think that everyone has to focus on the same thing at the same time. As a result, the MSM says nothing about the fact that we STILL have not seen DJT’s taxes (while they pummeled HRC about releasing the transcripts to her speeches). They aren’t saying much, if anything, about the conflict of interests that continue to exist. I wish someone would question Trump about the details on all these EO’s he’s signing; whether he has even read them and comprehends the impact. Not to mention the issues — legal, moral, lack of qualifications — regarding most of his cabinet and staff choices.

    Thankfully, PBO has gotten us into the habit of paying attention and has ingrained into us our responsibilities as citizens. The founding fathers had a lot of foresight when incorporating the checks and balances into the branches of government. As a result, DJT is not able to operate as the autocrat he had hoped to be. GOP (and Democratic) congresspersons are finding that they are no longer operating under the radar; that citizens are watching, making their voices heard, taking note, and hold them accountable.

      For 8 years, Trump said everything President Obama did was wrong. Now he blames all of his unpopular decisions on “We were just following what President Obama did.” We see you Trump. We don’t want to see you, but we see you.

    Rachel pointed out another case of where the non-administration of today is blaming the Obama administration for one of its current moves that they were caught doing (in the USDA situation of removing animal abuse data from its website) … luckily, a member of President Obama’s team came back with the truth.

    Trump forgets President Obama and his entire administration are still around to tell the truth on the orange glowstick’s efforts to blame everything on our President … unlike Frederick Douglass, not to be disrespectful to him but only to Trump, none of them have been dead for more than a century. And we are still around, too.

    Never in my life have I seen ANYTHING as dumb (for lack of a better word) as this entire group of a$$holes in the White House is on a daily basis.

    It turns out all it took to get Donald Trump to demote Sean Spicer was to have him portrayed as a woman on Saturday Night Live. Nevermind that Spicer has been bumblingly incompetent for the entirety of his two-plus weeks on the job in the White House; that didn’t seem to matter so much. But now Trump thinks Spicer is “weak” because SNL used a female actress, Melissa McCarthy, to lampoon him, and sure enough, Spicer is being demoted.

      Angry at the civilian casualties incurred last month in the first commando raid authorized by President Trump, Yemen has withdrawn permission for the United States to run Special Operations ground missions against suspected terror groups in the country, according to American officials.

      While the White House continues to insist that the attack was a “success” — a characterization it repeated on Tuesday — the suspension of commando operations is a setback for Mr. Trump, who has made it clear he plans to take a far more aggressive approach against Islamic militants.

      It also calls into question whether the Pentagon will receive permission from the president for far more autonomy in selecting and executing its counterterrorism missions in Yemen, which it sought, unsuccessfully, from President Barack Obama in the last months of his presidency.

    Coretta Scott King’s letter

    (Read the full letter below)

    “Anyone who has used the power of his office as United States Attorney to intimidate and chill the free exercise of the ballot by citizens should not be elevated to our courts,” King wrote in the cover page of her nine-page letter opposing Sessions’s nomination, which failed. “Mr. Sessions has used the awesome powers of his office in a shabby attempt to intimidate and frighten elderly black voters. For this reprehensible conduct, he should not be rewarded with a federal judgeship.”

    Thirty years later, Sessions, now a senator, is again undergoing confirmation hearings as President-elect Donald Trump’s nominee for attorney general, and he is facing fierce opposition from civil rights groups.

    In the letter, King writes that Sessions’s ascension to the federal bench “simply cannot be allowed to happen,” arguing that as a U.S. attorney, the Alabama lawmaker pursued “politically-motivated voting fraud prosecutions” and that he “lacks the temperament, fairness and judgment to be a federal judge.” She said Sessions’s conduct in prosecuting civil rights leaders in a voting-fraud case “raises serious questions about his commitment to the protection of the voting rights of all American citizens.”

    “The irony of Mr. Sessions’ nomination is that, if confirmed, he will be given a life tenure for doing with a federal prosecution what the local sheriffs accomplished twenty years ago with clubs and cattle prods,” she wrote, later adding, “I believe his confirmation would have a devastating effect on not only the judicial system in Alabama, but also on the progress we have made toward fulfilling my husband’s dream.”

    The Daily 202 newsletter

    A must-read morning briefing for decision-makers.

    During the 1986 hearing, the letter and King’s opposition became a crucial part of the argument against Sessions’s confirmation.

    BuzzFeed News first reported the existence of the letter earlier Tuesday, noting that it was never entered into the congressional record by then-Judiciary Committee Chair Strom Thurmond.

      I hope and pray that this photo and video of it reaches the Middle East. This one and others like that of the Yemini bodega owners and others kneeling in prayer on the street in NYC protected and supported by the other protesters. These are things that the broadcast media should be talking about and illustrating instead of once again falling for the distraction piece. It is so obvious that the list of so-called unreported terror attacks was put out to draw their attention away from more important issues, like that vote to get rid of the federal agency that monitors the voting machines. I said before that these two think are all about ego and getting over on each other and not about doing their jobs to serve the rest of us. Thank God for social media and for the local newspapers (only one of which endorsed 45) which are the only real sources of news.

    A silver lining? (Not before too much damage will be done to so many children)

    http://www.boomantribune.com/story/2017/2/7/144341/8055

    Democrats are frustrated that they couldn’t stop the confirmation of Betsy DeVos to be the Secretary of Education, but (setting aside the damage she will surely do) this could be a very pyrrhic victory for the Republicans. There were already big problems with the Democratic Party before the stunning election loss in November. Primary among them was that the party was built to win presidential elections but increasingly incapable of winning control of the House of Representatives or control of most state legislatures. But, just as their blue Electoral College wall unexpectedly crumbled in Pennsylvania and parts of the Midwest, the Republicans advantage in supposedly red districts could fall apart over how they handle our public schools.

    We’re already seeing formally dormant citizens erupt into political action over Trump’s immigration policies and attacks on health care. Public education is a potentially potent catalyst, as well, and one that knows no red/blue dividing line.

    The Democrats did themselves a favor by unanimously rejecting DeVos and forcing Vice-President Pence to cast the deciding vote. The Republicans now 100% own DeVos and the resulting incompetence and most likely deeply unpopular changes to education that are coming.

    Corbett learned the hard way that screwing up public education can undo your political coalition and end your career, and it looks to me like the congressional Republicans just Corbetted themselves.

    Just a reminder, just sayin’

    We’ve all seen that movie. When dudes throw bloody fodder into the ocean & sharks just start circling, totally distracted from whatever they were initially doing. Well-seasoned dictators are not the sharks, they feed the sharks the fodder to do their bidding. Do not allow yourselves or those who are supposed to represent you to be the fodder or the sharks. And as those dictators circle around enforcing and changing the rules, it’s only to affect their longevity in power. They will throw so much “fodder” all at once & thereafter just to maintain power & their own personal enrichment.

    Knowing the short attention span that’s been so well nurtured in this society, they’ll try to keep everybody busy and blind to the sleight of hand as they continue to demolish the very foundation of this country, who we are, the constitution, you name it.

    Don’t always go for the shiny objects they throw your way, keep a vigilant eye on all they’re doing. And do not be distracted by the 4th Estate’s obsession with shiny objects; push them to do their damn jobs.

    Keep in mind that well-renowned thieves never announce their presence. They just take it from right under your nose. So pay keen attention to the laws they’re trying to pass behind the scenes, from local to federal. Otherwise we’re heading for a terrifying dictatorship era.

    I’ve seen this “movie” before in my early life & it never ends well for the “everyday” person.

    GE TODville.

    Saw a flurry of tweets this morning about Jason Kander’s new national organization, Let America Vote (on Twitter, @Let_AmericaVote).

    Here’s an article with quotes from our favorite Press Secretary:

    From the article:

    “Kander, a Kansas City Democrat who lost a narrow race to Republican Sen. Roy Blunt in November, said that there’s been a coordinated effort to suppress voting in recent years and that ‘now that President Trump is in the White House that campaign is being run out of the White House.’ He’s launched a new national organization, Let America Vote, to combat that effort.”

    Quotes from Josh Earnest:

    “Former White House press secretary Josh Earnest praised Kander as ‘someone who has a long track record on these issues as secretary of state and has pushed back on some of these cynical efforts to make it harder for people to vote.’

    Earnest, who is from Kansas City, will sit on the group’s board of advisers along with an array other high-profile activists and Democratic Party stalwarts, including Martin Luther King III, former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau and Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood.

    ‘I think Jason’s hope and — I think he’s right about this — is this is larger than just one faction of the Democratic Party. Protecting access to the ballot is something that every American should agree on,’ Earnest said.”

    Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka was a trustee for a large bloc of shares in 21st Century Fox and News Corp that belong to Rupert Murdoch’s two youngest daughters, underscoring the close ties between the US president’s family and the mogul behind the Fox News Channel.

    The president’s daughter was a trustee of Grace and Chloe Murdoch, Mr Murdoch’s children by his ex-wife Wendi Deng, during the campaign. The two girls, aged 15 and 13, hold shares worth close to a combined $300m in the two companies, which are controlled by Mr Murdoch and his family.

    A spokesman for Mr Murdoch declined to comment on Ms Trump’s role on a five-person trustee board, which was confirmed by several people briefed on the situation who said she was a trustee for several years. A spokesperson for Ms Trump told the Financial Times that she stepped down from the board on December 28.

    -snip-

    Mr Murdoch is said to be in regular contact with the new president and his daughter, according to people briefed on the situation. The close ties between the families have endured since the election, according to multiple people aware of the relationships.

    Legal correspondent on Good Morning America questioned why no one was talking about DJT violation of the Emoluments Clause with the Pentagon renting space in Trump Towers — and other similar rentals/leases associated with Trump properties. Same thing every time he goes to his “Winter White House”.

    • February 8, 2017 at 8:26 am

      “Pentagon Considers Leasing Space at Trump Tower”

      The Defense Department may rent space in Trump Tower, where President Trump lives part time, raising questions about a potential conflict of interest because taxpayer dollars could be going directly to his business interests.

      An official said the move might be necessary to support the day-to-day operations for the president and his staff.

      The Pentagon made similar arrangements with past presidents, including for the Chicago home of President Barack Obama. The difference in this case, which was reported by CNN on Tuesday night, is that the Defense Department could be funneling government money directly to Mr. Trump’s commercial interests.

      • February 8, 2017 at 9:01 am

        I think that’s the same strategy that President Obama used. He never *showed* anger; always kept a calm and collected persona. Nor did he react recklessly. He always studied the situation — not afraid to get opposing viewpoints — before making decisions. Republicans did not know how to respond to this, often reacting immaturely and recklessly with no consideration of what is good for the country.

          And they never caught on – or perhaps CARED – that their behavior never resulted in anything positive. He outmaneuvered them at every turn.

          And continuing in that vein, Trump’s inner circle motivates his decisions by saying it isn’t what Obama would do.

There is not enough “internal fortitude” left in that entire sh*tpile of bigots and imbeciles and con men and looters to organize a game of charades, much less any serious opposition to the whims and ravings of the puppet of a hostile foreign power who is using The Bastard President to smash the last of our democratic institutions to bits. Hell, the other elected leaders of the Party of Lincoln are so frantic to slash taxes and regulations for their paymasters and gut the social safety net for everyone else that they can’t even manage a collecting finger-wag as The Bastard President openly sides with Vlad the Elector against his own country.

    Remember, these are the same Republican elected officials who lost their collective shite every hour on the hour for the last eight years over nonsense like Barack Obama wearing a tan suit or putting his feet up on his desk. The same Republican elected officials who lied and slandered and held the United States government and the global economy hostage over and over again. Whose major accomplishment were meaningless votes to strip people of their health insurance and endless witch-hunts over manufactured “scandals” like Benghazi and Solyndra.

    And the reason for they did all of it — the reason for eight years of berserk rage against a decent man over shite they invented followed by two weeks of craven groveling before a racist lunatic who is actually wrecking the place — is the worst kept secret in America. The reason they did it all is because the paranoid, malignantly ignorant, racist base of the party love it.

    Figured this was the case…

    According to the Independent, “Military officials got Donald Trump to agree to the botched Yemen raid by suggesting Barack Obama would never have had the courage to do it.” The truth of the matter, according to the New York Times, is that President Obama was advised to hold off on the plan until a moonless night, an event that would not occur until after Trump’s inauguration.

    In other words, they appealed to the petulant toddler that is the current President of the United States, stroking his fragile ego and giving him a chance to show how manly he is in comparison to his predecessor. They held a delicious treat in front of him, knowing full well that he’d do whatever they asked.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden will be a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, the school announced Tuesday. Biden has been named the Benjamin Franklin Presidential Practice professor and will reportedly lead the university’s new Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement. The center will be based in Washington, D.C., but Biden will reportedly also have an office at the university’s home campus in Philadelphia.

      That is great news for Joe Biden and the students who will have the opportunity to have him as a professor. The wealth of knowledge he can share will be invaluable.

    He’s not having ANY of his lies!

      Every time there is something negative about Trump, his administration or his family, a lie is tweeted or verbally declared, the media is attacked, and PBO is blamed. When this happens, we should look for the REAL story.
