Trump furious that lawmakers were briefed on Russian election interference

CBS This Morning (a US lightweight middle-of-road morning show)

President Trump was furious that Joseph Maguire, the former acting director of national intelligence, allowed one of his subordinates to tell House lawmakers that Russia appears to favor him in the 2020 election. Democrats are now calling for additional hearings, while Republicans are questioning the evidence presented, Paula Reid reports.

Trump hates the movie "Parasite", because kept choking on his fast food while reading the subtitles out loud. A 280 character tweet, a magazine cover, or newspaper headline is more than enough reading for Trump.

The Washington Post - Trump embarks on expansive search for disloyalty as administration-wide purge escalates

 

today

 


President Trump has instructed his White House to identify and force out officials across his administration who are not seen as sufficiently loyal, a post-impeachment escalation that administration officials say reflects a new phase of a campaign of retribution and restructuring ahead of the November election.

 

The push comes in the aftermath of an impeachment process in which several members of Trump’s administration provided damning testimony about his behavior with regard to Ukraine. ...

 

“We want bad people out of our government!” Trump tweeted Feb. 13, kicking off a tumultuous stretch of firings, resignations, controversial appointments and private skirmishes that have since spilled into public view.

 

The National Security Council, the State Department and the Justice Department are targets of particular focus, according to two administration officials, and there have recently been multiple resignations and reassignments at each of those agencies.

Joining the list of female villains working with Trump.

She pushed Trump to exit the Paris climate agreement and roll back environmental rules. And she’s returning to EPA as chief of staff.

Washington Post, by Juliet Eilperin and Brady Dennis

One of EPA’s first Trump appointees, Mandy Gunasekara, has run a ‘pro-Trump nonprofit’ since leaving the agency a year ago

Mandy Gunasekara, who pressed for President Trump to exit the Paris climate agreement as the Environmental Protection Agency’s top air-policy adviser, is poised to return to the agency as its next chief of staff, according to two individuals briefed on the matter.

Gunasekara left the EPA a year ago to start what she called a “pro-Trump nonprofit” in her home state of Mississippi. As head of the advocacy group Energy 45, she has argued on behalf of the president’s support for fossil fuels and other energy policies, writing that his approach “has brought both economic prosperity and cleaner air and water.”

After joining the EPA in March 2017, Gunasekara oversaw the agency’s Office of Air and Radiation on an acting basis for nearly eight months under then-Administrator Scott Pruitt. Trained as a lawyer, she played a key role in working to scale back federal rules aimed at cutting greenhouse gas emissions and other forms of pollution, including replacing the Obama-era Clean Power Plan and federal gas-mileage standards.

The Washington Post - Trump puts an unqualified loyalist in charge of national intelligence

 

21 Feb 2020

 


PRESIDENT TRUMP’S campaign to purge the government of anyone not blindly loyal to him continued Wednesday with the appointment of Richard Grenell as acting director of national intelligence. 

 

Mr. Grenell, who currently serves as ambassador to Germany, is manifestly unqualified for the job, even in an acting capacity. 

 

He has no experience in intelligence or in managing large organizations like the 17 agencies that will now report to him.

 

Mr. Grenell has nevertheless won the president’s favor in a familiar way: by loudly praising him and his agenda on Fox News programs and social media. 

 

Probably, he has convinced Mr. Trump he can be counted on to put the president’s personal and political interests above those of national security - something the two previous DNIs would not reliably do. ...

Psychiatrists would call that "appropriate affect".  🙃

 

A malicious, amoral, ignorant egomaniac is destroying democracy in the USA and elsewhere, whilst being genuinely convinced that he is "perfect".

 

Psychiatrists call that "malignant Narcissism".

"Donald Trump went broke running a casino" is equally shameful in Las Vegas.  😊

RUTH BADER GINSBURG SAYS TRUMP SHOULD RECUSE HIMSELF FROM ALL DECISIONS INVOLVING THE FUTURE OF THE USA

 

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Asserting that his personal interests put him in direct conflict with the interests of the United States of America, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has demanded that Donald Trump recuse himself from all decisions involving the future of the U.S.

 

Speaking from her office at the Supreme Court, Ginsburg said that Trump’s oft-stated allegiance to himself makes it impossible for him to render unbiased decisions on issues affecting people other than himself.

 

“Since the United States is populated by three hundred and thirty-one million people who are not him, any decision regarding their fates would, by definition, ensnare Trump in an insoluble conflict of interest,” she said.

 

Ginsburg enumerated a list of issues about which Trump should immediately recuse himself, including immigration, trade, taxes, the social safety net, women’s reproductive rights, health care, the economy, the military, the environment, “and just about any other issue not listed above.”

 

Ginsburg stressed, however, that after recusing himself from those matters, Trump should still be allowed to weigh in on other important decisions, like “what to eat and which channel to watch.”





'Ask not what you can do for your country: ask what you can do for me'. Donald J.Trump. US President 2016 - 2020.

The New York Times - opinion - Dems, You Can Defeat Trump in a Landslide

 

today

 


Back in May 2018, the former House speaker John Boehner declared: “There is no Republican Party. There’s a Trump party. The Republican Party is kind of taking a nap somewhere.”

 

It’s actually not napping anymore. It’s dead.

 

And I will tell you the day it died. 

 

It was just last week, when Trump sacked Maguire for advancing the truth and replaced him with a loyalist, an incompetent political hack, Richard Grenell. 

 

Grenell is the widely disliked U.S. ambassador to Germany, a post for which he is also unfit. 

 

Grenell is now purging the intelligence service of Trump critics. 

 

How are we going to get unvarnished, nonpolitical intelligence analysis when the message goes out that if your expert conclusions disagree with Trump’s wishes, you’re gone? ...

 

 

 

... Veteran political analyst E.J. Dionne argues that it is crucial that moderate and progressive Democrats find a way to build a governing coalition together.

 

Neither can defeat the other. Neither can win without the other. Neither can govern without the other.

 

If they don’t join together - if the Democrats opt for a circular firing squad - you can kiss the America you grew up in goodbye. ...
