What kind of president condemns the press, the Courts, the FBI, the Intelligence agencies, revokes the security clearance of a former Chairman of the CIA, and his own Attorney General?  What kind of president defends Putin, Duterete, the head of the KKK, supports pedophiles,

pardons people who violate the constitutional rights of Americans, repeatedly and in defiance of Federal Court orders?

The answer is clearly our current President, Donald Trump.  Trump has assaulted the US Constitution and common decency so many times that it has become commonplace.  We have developed a tolerance for this outrageous behavior.  It is ” forbearance” that has become the problem.  http://www2.philly.com/philly/columnists/will_bunch/trump-is-becoming-a-dictator-pardons-lies-obstruction-of-justice-20180603.html
We have grown tolerant and complacent with this immoral man at the helm of the most powerful country in the world.   Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt, authors of the  2018 best seller  How Democracies Die — is “not deploying one’s institutional prerogatives to the hilt, even if it’s legal to do so.” In other words, an American president can launch a nuclear first strike, add justices to pack the Supreme Court, fire prosecutors investigating him or his family or, failing that, issue full pardons to his allies or even perhaps himself. There are no laws and clauses in the Constitution to stop him from doing these things. Only tradition and a sense of what’s right and what’s good for America.
Remember Trump is the President who promised to choose the “best people”.

By his 365th day as president, 34 percent of Trump’s most senior staffers had quit, switched roles or were forced out, according to a study by the Brookings Institution’s Katie Dunn Tenpas that tracked staffers with the help of a list compiled by National Journal. That statistic has now climbed to 43 percent.  That’s more than double every other administration since 1981, when National Journal began the list.https://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/article/2018/mar/15/trump-white-house-turnover/

Twelve former CIA chiefs have denounced Donald Trump‘s decision to revoke John Brennan’s national security clearance, condemning the move as “an attempt to stifle free speech”.

“We all agree that the president’s action regarding John Brennan and the threats of similar action against other former officials has nothing to do with who should and should not hold security clearances – and everything to do with an attempt to stifle free speech,” the statement said.

It continued: “We have never before seen the approval or removal of security clearances used as a political tool, as was done in this case. Beyond that, this action is quite clearly a signal to other former and current officials.

“As individuals who have cherished and helped preserve the right of Americans to free speech – even when that right has been used to criticise us – that signal is inappropriate and deeply regrettable. Decisions on security clearances should be based on national security concerns and not political views.”https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/john-brennan-trump-cia-diretctor-security-clearance-revoke-us-president-joint-statement-in-full-a8495556.html

 Today the outrage has reach its highest level since Trump was inaugurated.  The New York Times relies on a source close to Trump and explains he: ” is not only unfit to be the most powerful man in the world, but is a venal mix of ignorance and ego, pettiness, malignancy and recklessness that is putting the republic and the world itself at risk.
The thunderclap of the Times piece laid bare an administration in disarray, a President dangerously off the rails and a nation adrift without the stable hand of an effective leader.
“Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” the official wrote.
“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room … this isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.”

Trump slams damning New York Times op-ed as 'gutless'

The legendary muckraker’s deeply reported account exposes profound disdain for the President among senior officials who are said to view him as an “idiot” with a fifth-grade education who the world needs protecting against.
“For all his boasts of historic success and self-image as a strongman’s strongman, the “adults in the room” want Americans to know: the emperor has no clothes.
“The root of the problem is the President’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making,” the unnamed official wrote in the staggering essay published by the Times.
The official even revealed there had even been talk among Cabinet officers about invoking the 25th Amendment to remove the President. Washington has seen almost everything under Trump, but a palace coup would be something else.
“There is somebody working for the President of the United States at a very senior level who is trying to destroy him,” Michael Caputo, a former Trump campaign aide told CNN’s Anderson Cooper.
It’s hard to find a parallel in Western political history for a leader to survive such a knifing since the power and fear need to sustain iron rule can slip away especially quickly in a democracy — as opposed to an autocratic state.”
Like a wounded king’s furious wail, Trump tweeted a single word: “TREASON?”

Woodward was just the start

The White House was already groggy Wednesday from the fearful blow of Woodward’s new book peeling open the West Wing, “Fear: Trump in the White House.”
The legendary muckraker’s deeply reported account exposes profound disdain for the President among senior officials who are said to view him as an “idiot” with a fifth-grade education who the world needs protecting against.
It turns out Woodward was just the appetizer.
The thunderclap of the Times piece laid bare an administration in disarray, a President dangerously off the rails and a nation adrift without the stable hand of an effective leader.
“Many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations,” the official wrote.
“It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room … this isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.”
The effect of the op-ed was to validate many of the claims of a President dangerously out of his depth that were made by Woodward, crushing White House efforts to fight back.
Washington is already getting consumed with speculation about who wrote the op-ed, the city’s biggest literary whodunit since the 1996 novel “Primary Colors,” loosely based on the Clintons, was revealed as the work of Joe Klein.
Then there is a quickening debate over the decision of the author to stay in the shadows and whether the person should demonstrate their courage of convictions by resigning and revealing their name.
If talk of the 25th Amendment is renewed, a true constitutional crisis could be looming.
Trump has responded in the East Room of the White House in an extraordinary display of defiance soon after The New York Times op-ed appeared.
“The failing New York Times has an anonymous editorial — can you believe it?” Trump told a gathering of sheriffs.
“Anonymous — meaning gutless. A gutless editorial,” the President said, in an appearance in which he laid claim to a record of staggering political success, a roaring economy and building military might.
Later, his mood had darkened and he delivered a truly sinister tweet.Does the so-called “Senior Administration Official” really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!
At a time like this we must stand up to any traitor who would endanger American values.  We must all be patriots and stand united against any leader who threatens the American way of life.

  1. Mitt Romney came out on the national stage and warned the world during trumps FAKE campaign to rig the USA Presidential election. He called him every name in the book. And then? oddly wanted a job. Hmmmm? Trump plays by lies, extortion, bribes, threats, crime, obstruction, deceit. He is a terrible example of man, father, human. His deranged delusional idea that he is smart, gifted, wealthy and admired is dangerous. With the collusion and aid of the KGB, trump has committed Treason against the United States of America. This shameful ugly lying sob pos can only resign into his deep dark state of denial. The evil slob is finished.

  2. Not sure what the point of that “op-ed” is. It may not exist. For all we know, trump himself could have authored it as a pretext to his next move. The anonymity thing is bullshit. Standing up for country requires a name.
