To listen to some of Donald Trump’s critics today, in America or abroad, you might conclude the West was facing another existential threat.

Having watched what has happened to the UK and Europe over the last 30 years or so, I would say it's not just America that is...

If this is the view of the Trump WH, then its REALLY scary. 

 

Quote, Stephen Miller. Senior Advisor to President Trump:

 

"Our opponents, the media and the whole world will soon see as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned."

 

Basically claiming that the US President has absolute power, and that the courts should just fall in line.

That was a disgraceful display by a man that appears to have zero constitutional knowledge

No, but they may find themselves redeployed or retired.

No. Any disloyal comrades will be sent to the re-education camps.

Yep, didn't last long: Michael Flynn, Trump's Security Adviser quits.

 

 

Earlier, US media reported that the Justice Department had warned the White House about the contacts late last month.

 

They said that Mr Flynn might be vulnerable to Russian blackmail.

Trump's meeting about North Korea, in public view, posted on Facebook, with his "advisers" using smartphone flashlights to read - smartphones with cameras - and a member of his "country club" taking photos with the aide-de-camp that carries the Nucleare Football.

 

This guy's lacks the minimum to be involved in "security".

 

Imagine how many foreign intelligence officers bought those $200,000 membership to the country club just for an opportunity like this?

Hopefully this is the start of a flood. Trump still hasn't filled most of the appointments that should be in place by now, and he has difficulty getting those he does appoint approved. Now one of his first choices has already fallen by the wayside after less than a month. I wonder if that stupid woman with the phobia about grizzly bears will be next?

To be fair, it is perfectly reasonable to be afraid of grizzly bears...
