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.

Is he going to start arresting members of the judicial  and media who don't support him??

 

 

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...

Just received from Petitions: UK Government and Parliament

"You’re receiving this email because you signed this petition: “Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.”.

"Dear #####,

"The Government has responded to the petition you signed – “Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom.”.


HM Government believes the President of the United States should be extended the full courtesy of a State Visit. We look forward to welcoming President Trump once dates and arrangements are finalised.
HM Government recognises the strong views expressed by the many* signatories of this petition, but does not support this petition.
During her visit to the United States on 27 January 2017, the Prime Minister, on behalf of Her Majesty the Queen, invited President Trump for a State Visit to the UK later this year. The invitation was accepted. This invitation reflects the importance of the relationship between the United States of America and the United Kingdom. At this stage, final dates have not yet been agreed for the State Visit.

Foreign and Commonwealth Office

This petition has over 100,000 signatures. The Petitions Committee will consider it for a debate. They can also gather further evidence and press the government for action.
The Committee is made up of 11 MPs, from political parties in government and in opposition. It is entirely independent of the Government.

Thanks,
The Petitions team
UK Government and Parliament


*  More than 1.8 million Brits signed this petition.

If it's anything like the previous "We don't like the Brexit result petition", you will find that 1.5 million signed it in Gibraltar!
