Donald Trump Jr. went to UCLA to decry ‘triggered’ liberals. He was heckled off the stage by the far right.

Washington Post By Katie Shepherd

Donald Trump Jr. and Trump campaign senior adviser Kimberly Guilfoyle came prepared with snappy rejoinders for liberal protesters who might taunt them on Sunday at the University of California at Los Angeles, where they promoted Trump Jr.'s new book, “Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us.”

But when unruly heckling drowned out the couple’s answers, leading the pair to walk offstage, it wasn’t leftists who cut the event short. Instead, the rebukes came from a crowd of young people who rank among the most ardent and extreme supporters of President Trump.

As first reported by the Guardian, a number of conservatives — some in Make America Great Again caps and pro-Trump attire — began to shout at the president’s son and political adviser 20 minutes into an event moderated by Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, after learning a question-and-answer session had been canceled.

Video from the event showed a chant that started out as “U-S-A! U-S-A!” turning quickly into angry cries of “Q-and-A! Q-and-A!” Minutes later, Trump Jr. and Guilfoyle stormed off the stage.

The chaotic scene contradicted Trump Jr.'s central thesis that liberals have grown so intolerant of dissenting voices, conservative politicians can no longer engage in civil discourse. It also exposed an increasingly hostile fissure between conservative student groups like Turning Point USA and a hard-right faction of young Trump devotees who have flocked to self-professed “American Nationalist” Nicholas Fuentes and his “America First” movement.

...Fuentes, 21, appeared to take credit for the protests on Sunday evening, tweeting that he and his followers don’t disagree with Trump Jr. Instead, he said their complaint was with Turning Point USA. On Sunday, he shared dozens of tweets celebrating the event’s shutdown and denigrating Turning Point USA.

“Our problem is not with @DonaldJTrumpJr who is a patriot — We are supporters of his father!” he tweeted. “Our problem is with Charlie Kirk’s TPUSA organization that SHUTS DOWN and SMEARS socially conservative Christians and supporters of President Trump’s agenda. We are AMERICA FIRST!”

The host of an ultraconservative podcast and YouTube show called “America First,” Fuentes has appeared on YouTube with bloggers who advocate for a white ethnostate. He has used slurs and promoted anti-Semitism in his broadcasts, which has put him at odds with Daily Wire editor Ben Shapiro. Fuentes marched in Charlottesville with white supremacists during the deadly Unite the Right rally in 2017, the Boston Globe reported.

For weeks, Fuentes has been railing against Turning Point USA, which once invited him to speak at Iowa State University, and the more mainstream wing of the pro-Trump movement. On Nov. 4, he directed his fans to show up to Turning Point USA events and heckle speakers during question-and-answer segments. The 21-year-old’s fans have been harassing Kirk at several recent Turning Point USA events on college campuses.

Filthy racist POS senior policy adviser in the WH:

 

In the run-up to the 2016 election, White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller promoted white nationalist literature, pushed racist immigration stories and obsessed over the loss of Confederate symbols after Dylann Roof’s murderous rampage, according to leaked emails reviewed by Hatewatch.

 

The emails, which Miller sent to the conservative website Breitbart News in 2015 and 2016, showcase the extremist, anti-immigrant ideology that undergirds the policies he has helped create as an architect of Donald Trump’s presidency. These policies include reportedly setting arrest quotas for undocumented immigrants, an executive order effectively banning immigration from five Muslim-majority countries and a policy of family separation at refugee resettlement facilities that the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Inspector General said is causing “intense trauma” in children.

 

In this, the first of what will be a series about those emails, Hatewatch exposes the racist source material that has influenced Miller’s visions of policy. That source material, as laid out in his emails to Breitbart, includes white nationalist websites, a “white genocide”-themed novel in which Indian men rape white women, xenophobic conspiracy theories and eugenics-era immigration laws that Adolf Hitler lauded in “Mein Kampf.”

State Department Staffer Used Embellished Resume, Fake Time Magazine Cover

MSNBC

A senior Trump administration official has embellished her résumé with misleading claims about her professional background — even creating a fake Time magazine cover with her face on it — raising questions about her qualifications to hold a top position at the State Department.

Mina Chang, the deputy assistant secretary in the State Department's Bureau of Conflict and Stability Operations, falsely claims to be a Harvard grad, and exaggerated the scope of her nonprofit's work.

Regarding the two arrested while fleeing Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman, they were Trump's personal lawyer's associates.

Trump said he doesn't know them, and appears to be throwing loyal Rudy Giuliani under the bus.

CBS News poll: Americans remain divided on Trump impeachment

Ahead of Wednesday's public impeachment hearings, a CBS News poll finds more than half of Americans approve of the inquiry into President Trump.

However, a majority of Americans are unhappy with how the probe is being handled by both Democrats in Congress as well as President Trump.

CBS News director of elections and surveys Anthony Salvanto joined "Red and Blue" to break down the numbers and discuss how both parties could try to sway public opinion.

Arguably that makes her uniquely well qualified to work for the Trump administration.

Trump’s Impeachment Hearings Aren’t Going Well...If You’re Trump

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Maybe they are three years late, but the impeachment hearings are finally happening! One thing we already know for sure is that the president is definitely, absolutely not watching them even though he tweeted about them the entire time. Republicans fell apart as Ambassador Taylor’s testimony directly incriminated Trump. Buckle up. It’s going to be a long, weird ride.

POTUS in DC (with deepest apologies to Chuck Berry)

 


Russian information, give me POTUS in DC
Help me find the prezzie trying to get in touch with me
He could not leave a number but I know he tried to call
‘cause Mulvany took the message and he wrote it on the Wall

 

Help me Mr Putin, get in touch with my Spanky
I’m the only one so dumb to phone him publicly
He lives in Mar-a-Lago but he tweets from Washington
His taxes are the reason that he’s sitting in the sun

 

Help me Mr Putin, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss him and all the fun we had
Bolton didn’t like it and he got a little mad
But the whistle blower caused our deal to go bad

 

The last time I saw Spanky he was waving my big cheque
With tears of greedy joy that trickled down his chubby neck
He acts just like a six year-old, oh Mr Putin please,
Try to put me through to him I’m begging on my knees

Roger Stone is well-known for having a tattoo of Nixon on his back



Roger Stone guilty on all counts in federal trial of lying to Congress, witness tampering

Washington Post By Spencer S. Hsu, Rachel Weiner and Matt Zapotosky

A federal jury has convicted longtime Trump confidant Roger Stone of lying to Congress and tampering with a witness about his efforts to learn about the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks release of hacked Democratic emails in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The panel of nine women and three men deliberated for less than two days before finding Stone, 67, guilty on all seven counts resulting from his September 2017 testimony to a House intelligence committee investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and the Kremlin’s efforts to damage Trump’s Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

...Stone faces a legal maximum penalty of 50 years in prison — 20 years for the witness tampering charge and five years for each of the other counts, although a first offender would face far less time under federal sentencing guidelines.

Stone’s indictment was the last brought by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, revealing important details about the Trump campaign’s keen interest in computer files hacked by Russia and made public by WikiLeaks. He was accused of lying to Congress and tampering with a witness, an associate whom prosecutors said Stone threatened in a bid to prevent the man from cooperating with lawmakers.
