I really can't wait till this asshole is out of there. Even when he does something right he makes it wrong with some stupid comment or lie. I truly believe he will go down as the worst President ever.

Only if we let him have a war. Until then, he'll simply be the least competent.

I mean the first thing that stands out about the tweet of course is the fact that Moon is of course now recognized as part of Mars. Never mind the fact that this is a complete reversal of Trump and his administrations position as recently as a month ago I believe, but we'll see how the win blows tomorrow. Trump could be going again to the Moon in a week, Trump could decide that he wants to put tariffs on Mexico because his deal wasn't good enough for the right wing media whatever the terms may be, at this point I'll be expecting Trump to announce on twitter with in the month that tariffs will soon be coming on the Moon.

Nice timing of course after the dow has been in a rough spot for the last month or so an I see there wasn't any tweet with the jobs report numbers that he usually loves to post.

Jobs creation slows dramatically with payrolls up just 75,000 in May, much worse than expected

You don't say. Boy Blunder denied a clearance due to foreign influence peddling is getting rich from unknown foreign monies? Weird.

Drain that swamp!


Kushner Company Has Taken in $90M From Unnamed Foreign Accounts Since 2017: Report

A real estate company co-owned by Jared Kushner, White House senior adviser and President Trump’s son-in-law, has reportedly received foreign funds totaling $90 million from unknown offshore accounts since 2017.

The Guardian reported Mr. Kushner’s company, Cadre, has received overseas investment through a Cayman Islands Goldman Sachs vehicle while Mr. Kushner has worked as an envoy to foreign nations, according to filings and interviews.

Cadre withholds names from foreign investments via Goldman Sachs, but two sources said a majority of the money came from two accounts, one in the tax haven of The Cayman Islands while the other was located in Saudi Arabia.

Mr. Kushner resigned from his board position and sold his shares before joining the administration, but kept his stake in the company, reported at 25% and valued at about $50 million, according to financial discourse documents.

Ethics experts say this report could raise concerns about Mr. Kushner having conflicts of interests while working on official U.S. business.

“It will cause people to wonder whether he is being improperly influenced,” said Jessica Tillipman, a government ethics and anti-corruption lecturer at George Washington University Law School, told The Guardian.

This report comes after a White House whistleblower said in April that Mr. Kushner was originally denied a security clearance due to “foreign influence” and his business interests.
Mr. Kushner, Mr. Trump and other administration officials have met backlash for keeping business holdings while serving in the executive branch, which past presidents have largely avoided doing.

“The problem with Kushner — and with Trump — is that we have all these corporate entities, and often nobody knows who is invested in them and where those investors borrowed their money,” said Richard Painter, a Bush-era ethics lawyer. “We simply have no idea.”

Just another Monday morning corruption case that would cripple any other administration for the remainder of the term.

It’s a cut and dry case of why he shouldn’t have a clearance. It is an absolute affront to the process that he has a clearance right now when people with far less dubious qualities in their files take years to get one or are denied altogether.

Enough people won’t understand this or care to understand why this is an absolute joke and a mockery of our national security, but they should.

And elections are still insecure and not a single Republican cares. They are actively voting for the destruction of our democracy. I used to disagree but respect some conservatives like my WWII grandad, but this I can't abide. Bipartisan legislation passed the house and the Senate will not vote on it due to mconnell. Thinking political correctness is the problem that needs attention in this country while this goes on is so naive.

Oh without a doubt it makes a complete mockery of the system by the fact that Kushner was nagged into getting security clearance. To go along with that I have no trust in someone like Kushner to protect this country's secrets essentially when he has these foreign ties and this administration has acted in directions that would show to be favorable to those ties. Look no further then the recent Saudi arms deal that was pushed through. Honestly its why most of the Republican complaining about ethics is rich, they left ethics at the door a long time ago.

Fresh lies from Trump:

1) We have a secret deal with Mexico where get great stuff as a result of tariffs. Also that stuff they already were doing/agreed to is part of the deal even though they say neither are true.

2) China's economy lost $15-20 trillion in value because of tariffs, even though their economy has continued to grow during the Trump admin and it's estimated closer to $12 trillion...

3) Various dumbshit claims about how tariffs have many benefits.

This always happens. Trump supporters deny shit, deny reality, claim a vast conspiracy, invest themselves in it.

And then he comes out and basically admits he would break the law, or did.

So the traitor admits he'd get into bed with the enemy to win I mean, he already did. Also, he obviously has no concept of why the law should apply to him as failure to disclose foreign contact violates several laws and is there for very good reasons.

Damnatio Memoriae will be too good for him after he serves his prison sentence(s).


'I think I’d Take it': In Exclusive Interview, Trump Says he Would Listen if Foreign [Governments] Offered Dirt on Opponents

President Donald Trump may not alert the FBI if foreign governments offered damaging information against his 2020 rivals during the upcoming presidential race, he said, despite the deluge of investigations stemming from his campaign's interactions with Russians during the 2016 campaign.

Asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos in the Oval Office on Wednesday whether his campaign would accept such information from foreigners -- such as China or Russia -- or hand it over the FBI, Trump said, "I think maybe you do both."

"I think you might want to listen, there isn't anything wrong with listening," Trump continued. "If somebody called from a country, Norway, [and said] ‘we have information on your opponent' -- oh, I think I'd want to hear it."

President Trump made the remark during an exclusive interview with ABC News over the course of two days, wherein Stephanopoulos joined the president on a visit to Iowa and back to Washington for a day inside the White House.

Trump disputed the idea that if a foreign government provided information on a political opponent, it would be considered interference in our election process.

"It's not an interference, they have information -- I think I'd take it," Trump said. "If I thought there was something wrong, I'd go maybe to the FBI -- if I thought there was something wrong. But when somebody comes up with oppo research, right, they come up with oppo research, 'oh let's call the FBI.' The FBI doesn't have enough agents to take care of it. When you go and talk, honestly, to congressman, they all do it, they always have, and that's the way it is. It's called oppo research."

President Trump lamented the attention on his son, Donald Trump Jr., for his role in the now-infamous Trump Tower meeting in June 2016. Stephanopoulos asked whether Trump Jr. should have taken the Russians' offer for "dirt" on then-candidate Hillary Clinton to the FBI.
"Somebody comes up and says, ‘hey, I have information on your opponent,' do you call the FBI?" Trump responded.

"I'll tell you what, I've seen a lot of things over my life. I don't think in my whole life I've ever called the FBI. In my whole life. You don't call the FBI. You throw somebody out of your office, you do whatever you do," Trump continued. "Oh, give me a break – life doesn't work that way."

"The FBI director said that is what should happen," Stephanopoulos replied, referring to comments FBI Director Christopher Wray made during congressional testimony last month, when he told lawmakers "the FBI would want to know about" any foreign election meddling.
But on Wednesday, the president refuted Wray's sentiment.

"The FBI director is wrong, because frankly it doesn't happen like that in life," Trump said. "Now maybe it will start happening, maybe today you'd think differently."

Liberals and anyone not firmly in Trump’s camp can say whatever they want.

It’s up to those who support him to have standards and moral baselines which need to be realized.

I’m finding it more and more difficult to even look at those folks with a straight face, at this point.
