DACA’s Dark Day

On Tuesday most likely, President Trump will announce an end to President Obama’s DACA program. If your an ardent Trump supporter, this news probably thrills your little xenophobic heart. However, if your one of the roughly 65% of Americans that didn’t vote for Trump, its another blight & embarrassment. If your one of the Dreamers, it’s a sad end too your “American Dream”. 

  There are a great many things Trump has promised and hasn’t delivered. No Obamacare repeal anywhere in sight. His vaunted infrastructure package has yet to see the light of day. The “wall” will most likely never be built & if so, we the people will pay for it.  This however is one campaign promise the bigoted and xenophobic autocratic President will deliver on.  Not surprising or shocking for a man who just a few weeks ago defended the KKK & Nazi’s.

Spanning The Country 

Taking a quick look around the country today, we makes stops at the two newspapers of record, The New York Times & The Washington Post. Despite what you have heard from our fake President, these two papers have been getting it right for decades & more lately they have accurately hammered President Trump on his many many missteps. 

The biggest story today is North Korea boasting yet again about testing of nuclear weapons.  It has yet to be determined if these latest claims are accurate or more hubris from Kim Jong Un. One thing is certain, our lack of experience & real leadership in the White House & at the State Department. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has been grossly overmatched during the last few months with the nuclear threat from North Korea. If tweet threats counted, the U.S. would be safe & sound, however they do not.  One thing is certain, no one in this current administration with the possible exception of Defense Secretary of State James Mattis seems to have any possible solutions that go beyond basic syllables.

In other news making headlines across the country was President Trump & FLOTUS doing another photo op in Texas with victims of Hurricane Harvey.  In typical Trump fashion there was plenty of sizzle & very little steak. Trump was caught on camera asking people about the boxed meals he was passing out, bragging about the sanitary gloves not fitting his hands & thanking everyone for coming out, as if they had a choice.

Trump Returns to Texas, With Words of Encouragement and Triumph

Russian Hacked GOP ?

Pretty interesting story from The Wall Street Journal, regarding Russian hacking. Except, it’s not what you may think. FBI Director James Comey, yesterday said that the GOP was also hacked, but not to the extent as the DNC. Comey also disclosed the Russians didn’t for whatever reason (wink wink) didn’t release the Republican hacked information.

The Russian Trump Card??

News is flying fast and furious this evening, and several media outlets are reporting the following information. The information below was reported by Robert Reich & The New York Time

More to follow…..

Here’s what the Russians have on Trump: 

None of the following are yet substantiated by the FBI or other U.S. intelligence agencies. The information comes from a former British intelligence officer who is considered a competent and reliable source, with extensive experience in Russia. His memos describe: 

1. Several purported meetings during the 2016 presidential campaign between Trump representatives and Russian officials to discuss matters of mutual interest, including the Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee and of Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta.

2. Lucrative deals proposed to Trump by Russian officials — essentially disguised bribes — designed to win influence over Trump.

3. Sex videos involving prostitutes with Trump in a 2013 visit to a Moscow hotel. The videos were supposedly prepared as “kompromat,” or compromising material, with the possible goal of blackmailing Trump in the future.

Again, none of this is substantiated. Apparently the FBI is looking into them.

What do you think?
