TRUMPS WORLD IN BITS and PIECES




CHAOS AND FAILURE

 

HE IS KNOWN BY THE COMPANY HE KEEPS… AND HIS AND THEIR LIES…SIMILAR FOOTING…
Whether or not President Donald Trump’s dealings with Ukraine, his actions were wrong—and, sadly, not uncommon in the present era.  “T-RUMP is a particularly egregious example, but his misbehavior fits a global trend.  Leaders from Britain’s Boris Johnson to India’s Narendra Modi to the Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte have all violated democratic norms. Political parties typically check this behavior, but that’s not happening in the US. “American Democracy today desperately needs the GOP to uphold democracy rather than feast on its destruction,”.

The Ukraine risks became a partisan issue in the US—at a moment when it can’t afford to lose America’s diplomatic and military backing. 

Israel has grown more aligned with Trump’s Republican Party, and Brexit has driven a similar partisan wedge in US approaches to Britain, for instance.

Trump’s overall approach to foreign policy probably led the whistle to be blown: Foreign policy professionals prize their traditions and professionalism, and T-RUMP has “offended their sense of propriety,”.   As a result, T-RUMP has alienated that class of civil servants and caused alarm among them.   He has destroyed the DOJ, the Courts, the FBI, the CIA and our standing in the world.


HIS APPOINTEES HAVE DESTROYED THE DOJ AND THE SUPREME COURT

Washington (CNN)A federal judge in Wisconsin has penned a caustic essay accusing Chief Justice John Roberts of "undermining democracy" and placing him at the center of problems in a polarized America, just as Roberts has been increasingly trying to defend the Court from US politics.  In a piece ricocheting across social media and provoking conservatives, US District Court Judge Lynn Adelman, a 1997 appointee of former President Bill Clinton, writes that Roberts' confirmation pledge to be an umpire merely calling balls and strikes "was a masterpiece of disingenuousness."   "The Roberts Court has been anything but passive," Adelman says in his 35-page essay. "Rather, the Court's hard right majority is actively participating in undermining American democracy." 

Adelman highlights decisions such as the 2013 Shelby County v. Holder decision that curtailed the reach of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and the 2010 Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling that lifted campaign finance regulations. Both cases were decided by 5-4 votes, with Republican-appointed conservatives holding the majority. 

An overriding point of Adelman, a former Wisconsin state senator known for his liberalism, is that the high court answers the desires of wealthy people while shortchanging ordinary Americans.  Such criticism from a fellow federal judge is startling, although Adelman's key points have long been detailed by liberal advocates, law professors and other writers. Rarely do jurists break ranks so publicly and personally. 

He described Roberts' 2005 Senate confirmation testimony as "misleading" and declared that "the Roberts Court has contributed to insuring that the political system in the United States pays little attention to ordinary Americans and responds only to the wishes of a relatively small number of powerful corporations and individuals." 

John Roberts lays groundwork for Supreme Court to limit abortion

In a telephone interview with CNN on Thursday, Adelman said he has been caught off guard by attention to his law review essay.  "All this fuss has disarmed me," he said, but quickly added, "I felt it needed to be said. Other people have written on this subject. But it's such an important issue. You can't say it enough." He said he wanted to add his unique perspective as a judge.  In his essay, he wrote, "We desperately need public officials who will work to revitalize our democratic republic. Unfortunately, the conservative Justices on the Roberts Court are not among them."   The piece, entitled "The Roberts Court's Assault on Democracy," will be in the Harvard Law & Policy Review, a student law journal published by the liberal American Constitution Society. 

Adelman's assessment has burst forth amid Roberts' recent efforts to rope off the Court and just a week after scorching exchanges at the fulcrum of the law and politics. Roberts issued a rare statement to defend conservative justices against attacks by Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer during an abortion-rights case, and President Donald Trump separately lashed out on Twitter against liberal justices Sonia Sotomayor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. 

Roberts did not respond to a request for comment. Adelman, who is 80 and still hearing cases in Milwaukee, has spawned a heated round of critiques, from conservatives, who have denounced him, and liberals, praising his candor. 

"This screed could have come from a Bernie stump speech," Professor Josh Blackman wrote on the right-leaning Volokh Conspiracy legal blog. "It has no place in a publication by a federal judge. ... There is nothing new or original here. Judge Adelman merely repeats the same tropes we have heard for a decade."   Blackman, a professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston, also suggested Adelman compromised judicial ethics by publishing his complaints, which included a biting critique of Trump, and then by talking to reporters. 

US DISTRICT JUDGE LYNN ADELMAN

From the opposite perspective, Slate commentators Dahlia Lithwick and Mark Joseph Stern acknowledged in a piece on Tuesday that in the past the judge might have been challenging the usual norms in his scathing essay.   But they wrote, “ t is in the finest tradition of the judicial branch to sacrifice decorum and politeness to calls for actual justice, especially when the rights of minorities, women, the poor, and the disenfranchised have been hollowed out by monied interests and the political branches that answer to them.  “The real tragedy here," Lithwick and Stern added, "is that progressive judges will be pilloried for saying out loud what conservative judges have secretly, and not so secretly, crowed about themselves for decades."  Adelman told CNN he believes he crossed no line and, rather, fulfilled a duty.

"It's reasonable to criticize decisions of the Supreme Court," he said. "I understand that I'm bound by them. And I've done that (in rulings). But I think I have a duty to criticize decisions that are flawed."

THE OTHERS REALLY CAN’T STAND HIM
They see him as a fool…The love affair that Donald promised and with full fake cooperation by the North Korean Dictatorship Kim Jong Un, has gone over like a fart in a spacesuit.  Make that a full dump in a space suit.  All those platitudes and conversations, photo-ops, were bullsh*t  including letters sent by both sides and promises based on the parties concerned were BULL SH*T.   

Thats Donald all bullsh*t wiped away by crisis after crisis made up by him with simple photo-ops and tweets to cover with fake indignation his lies and bullsh*t.

Bottom Line:  Failure… from a wall promised that didn’t work as planned to love letters and platitudes with despots, nothing but bullsh*t and failure.

HOW DO WE STOP IT? THREE METHODS CAN WORK…

1) Vote the bastard out of office, we have only one chance… 

2)  He drops dead from natural causes… I will cover his grave with the appropriate flowers, Ragweed, Poison Ivy, and Poison Sumac.  Varied thorns and a tropical tree from Central America known as The manchineel tree may be endangered, but so is anyone who messes with it. That’s because this rare tropical plant, which offers deceptively sweet fruit, is one of the most poisonous trees on Earth, appropriate for the greatest liar in history

3) If you are into financial Conservativeness then method three will appeal… Assassination Cheapest and it gets rid of his followers and tribe now known as the Bathroom Cabinet due to all the sh*t that comes out of there… Anything else is a waste of time.

4)  One thing to note: When T-RUMP goes we eliminate the cabinet, the DOJ blunder, and his family.  Thats too rich to not take advantage of.
