Here are the great big right-in-the-open FACTS we all know about what just happened in Hamburg, Germany last week:
  1. Trump deliberately scheduled a major meeting with Putin.
  2. The meeting lasted two hours.
  3. Only ten minutes worth of the meeting has been explained.
  4. Only two translators were in the room along with the four leaders.
  5. Trump allegedly challenged Putin about cyber-warfare.
  6. Putin said he didn't do it.
  7. Trump said he didn't think Putin did it.
  8. Trump mocked the 17 United States Intelligence agencies for their findings.

There is little room for debate about the clear conclusions to be drawn from the basic facts of what Trump (and Putin) have shown us to be true:
  • Trump is not an American.
  • Trump does not represent America.
  • Trump will never choose the interests of America over the interests of Trump.

Any margin for alternative interpretation of the Trumps is now gone. They are working on a corporate merger between two powerful countries, with each of them as CEO of their respective major divisions. They both expect to be able to write their own rules, as corporate boards have always allowed when accompanied by profits. The fact that our nation, the United States, is designed in such a way as to be CONSTITUTIONALLY AVERSE to this style of operation, is merely a stumbling-block at the front-end of their venture.

Trump has no interest in courts, or a congress, and certainly not any free media, and he intends to dispense with all of those things to model his beloved homeland in the image of modern Russia, combined with Nazi Germany and any old European Monarchy. And he will be patriotic about it every step of the way. He sees himself as the first in a long line of King Trumps.

The last year of political life in the United States has been like a reality-show version of the Marvin Gaye song "What's Goin' On?" 

Except that Marvin and the rest of us KNEW what was going on around 1970, and it was plenty bad. In this verse, we really did not know "what's goin' on" with the whole Trump movement, the Russia connection, and so forth. We have been spectators to an unprecedented suspense/horror/drama/adventure movie - - - in real life - - - that has largely made no sense at all.

Now we have the answer.
Once and for all.

In the opening segment of her show on January 11, Maddow presented factual data assembled by her research team that sheds the key angle of light on the Trump "Presidency" that suddenly, and completely, makes everything clear. The entire show from that night appears below, and you are welcome to watch the whole thing, but it's the FIRST 20 MINUTES THAT WILL EXPLAIN EVERYTHING THAT'S BEEN GOING ON FOR THE PAST YEAR:



QUICK SYNOPSIS:  Exxon has purchased rights to drill oil in more than 60-million acres of Russian land. The sanctions against Russia have stopped those projects from moving forward. The Exxon properties in Russia represent more than half of all the properties worldwide that Exxon can explore. If Exxon can get the United States to be "more friendly" with Russia, the sanctions could be lifted, and Exxon would be in line to make trillions, if not quadrillions of dollars in the coming years. 

BOTTOM LINE:  This is all about OIL MONEY. Trump has been compromised and Putin is extorting him to open up drilling in Russia. The profits from these projects will enrich Trump and Putin, and may give rise to the return of the U.S.S.R.






As "funny" as this picture may be, it sums up what has been happening in our world about as well as any other single image. Vladimir Putin politically seduced Donald Trump years ago, subsequently extorting him to win the United States Presidency.

Now Putin rides Trump on a daily basis, commanding him to open up the Russian oil fields to Exxon. The profits of that venture would enrich Trump and fund the rise and return of the Soviet Union. Trump is not only anti-Obama, he is also anti-Reagan.

We continue our series of "Top Ten" lists - - - the "Greatest Hits" of Barack Obama - - - taken from the web site "Please Cut The Crap", which lists 400 accomplishments of the first openly bi-racial President. Each claim comes with a link that allows you to check out the basis of the claim.

Don't let the "Fake News History Team" re-write the story of what actually happened under the Obama Administration. It was truly one of the best periods of modern American life, despite the continual efforts of the Republican Elite Class to distort the picture. Trump inherits a peaceful nation with a steadily growing economy. If the status quo is not maintained, the fault is with Trump, not Obama.

Specific Examples of Economic Improvement

As of October 2016, a record 73 consecutive months of overall job growth. http://on.msnbc.com/1TKFCPQ

As of August 2016, Unemployment drops below 5% for the first time in eight years and without a significant bubble, remains below 5% all year so far. 4.9% http://on.msnbc.com/1TKFCPQ

As of October 2016, there have been 80 consecutive months of private sector job growth. http://1.usa.gov/1Xhizho

In April 2016, new unemployment claims hit their lowest level since 1973. As of September 2016, they remain at 43-year lows. That means lower than at any time during Saint Reagan’s Administration. http://yhoo.it/2eaIPbf http://nyti.ms/1YhZEBk,

Since February 2010, when unemployment peaked, 15.6 million non-farm private sector jobs have been created. http://1.usa.gov/1Xhizho

Contrary to GOP rhetoric, most of the new jobs created have been full-time, not temporary. http://bit.ly/2dF7pjO

Oversaw a reduction in the federal budget deficit by two-thirds since taking office. http://bit.ly/1xKMmjY

Reduced the federal budget deficit from 9.8% of GDP in Fiscal Year 2009 under Bush, to 2.5% of GDP in FY 2015. http://bit.ly/2cI4ABV

Scolds Congress and gets a $305 billion highways bill passed. This bill has the added benefit of created hundreds of thousands of new jobs and creating incentives for green cars. http://bit.ly/1NsL2Zq

Stock market has reached record highs, restoring most of the economic losses felt during the Bush Recession. http://bit.ly/1z4FAtL

The only way to "get to" Donald Trump is his bank account. He loves money, that's for sure, but only if it's HIS MONEY. There is now a way to make it harder for Trump to make more money.

An APP for your smartphone has been created to help you avoid purchasing products that are associated with the Trumps. You can read about it from the sources listed below.

The new APP was also mentioned recently on Saturday Night Live:

Before we officially reach the end of the Barack Obama Era, we should take time to remember for posterity those things that he did as President that were actually very good for America. How many of us listened to the awful things said about him during his term of office only to "bite our lips" and let the silly comments go by the wayside? Who among us thought that the wing-nut crowd would get in position to literally rewrite history with their nonsense?

So we start this series of "Top Ten" lists, taken from the web site "Please Cut The Crap", which lists 400 accomplishments of the first openly bi-racial President. Each claim comes with a link that allows you to check out the basis of the claim. (Too bad we can't force Donald Trump to post links along with his crazy claims, eh?)

He changed the Culture of the Executive Branch

  • Within his first week, he signed an Executive Order ordering an audit of government contracts, combating waste and abuse.   http://1.usa.gov/dUvbu5

  • On his first full day, he froze White House salaries for the duration of the Great Recession.  http://cbsn.ws/2aNMqNN

  • He committed to phasing out unnecessary and outdated weapons systems and signed the Weapons Systems Acquisition Reform Act, in an attempt to limit waste, fraud and abuse in the defense procurement and contracting systems. http://bit.ly/hOw1t1

  • Signed an Executive Order instructing federal agencies to review all federal regulations and remove any unnecessary and/or burdensome regulations from the books.  http://1.usa.gov/Lpo5bd

  • Banned anyone from working in an agency they had lobbied in previous years and placed strict limits on lobbyists’ access to the White House.   http://nyti.ms/gOrznV

  • Restored the 30-day time frame for former presidents to review records and eliminated the right for the vice president or family members of former presidents to do the reviews, giving the public greater access to historic White House documents, and curtails the use of executive privilege to shield them. http://1.usa.gov/gUetLb

  • Improved the Freedom of Information Act and issued new guidelines to make FOIA more open and transparent when processing FOIA requests.  http://1.usa.gov/gjrnp2

  • Provided the first voluntary disclosure of the White House Visitors Log in history.  http://1.usa.gov/hQ7

Funny how the mainstream news-cycles work sometimes. The evidence of Russian interference in the American Election was evident months ago, well before Election Day. The vague announcement in mid-October about the mischief was incomplete; we now know that was by design. And now, suddenly, just before the Electoral College does its thing, the truth is revealed:

The dots were connected right after the Election by Scott Dworkin, in his self-titled "Dworkin Report". He's the one who runs the "democraticcoalition.org" web site.

Dworkin is now working on a project to compile all of the shenanigans of Trump into one location, found on Twitter as #TRUMPLEAKS. You can also get to that project through the main web site.

Newsweek reported on the Russian support for Trump in the week prior to Election Day. The BBC was on the story in September. Time was moving on this story in August. Check out this video about the Russian love for Trump dating back to last April (also from the BBC). The Political Insider previewed the KGB vote for Trump all the way back to December 2015, one year ago.

So much for the "anti-Trump bias" of
the so-called Mainstream Media.

The media supported Trump's campaign
like no other since its inception.

We showed you this billboard in Russia (submitted courtesy of a reader), but not to surprise you, only to verify what we've basically known all along. Trump has no greater purpose to seek the presidency than to promote his Russian political values.

- - - - - THIS JUST IN - - - - -

(original source web site here)

Former KGB Director Vladimir Putin finally has his "puppet" in the White House. The Soviet Dream during the Reagan Era has come true. Russians are rejoicing over the election of TheRump.

The Russian "meddling" in the American Election process is front and center now, but it's not exactly news. Remember the reports in October? How about this report the day after the election? The only thing that's changed is that government officials are playing different versions of "hide-and-seek" and "keep-away" with the information.

Momentum is gathering on this issue, but it may not be enough to block access to the White House. It seems likely, however, to be one of the items on the "Naughty List" that Republicans can use to impeach the Abominable Showman in 2017.

The nomination of "Mad Dog Mattis" as Secretary of Defense is a fancy way for Donald Trump to tell everybody in the United States: "Shove it up your wherever, I'm in charge and you can't stop me."

Mattis is not eligible for the position. By law, he must have been out of uniform (or never in uniform) for at least seven years. Trump knows that Mattis does not qualify, which is probably one of the reasons for his nomination.

The US Congress clearly stated its intent for Secretary of Defense nominations immediately following World War II. Appointing Mattis would violate the clear policy instructions of the Americans who survived the fascist tide of Nazism by defeating the Axis Powers. It might be considered "patriotic" to follow those instructions, but Trump is no Patriot.

These maneuverings by the presumed-president-elect have brought the concept of "civilian control" to the center of public debate. Most everybody would agree it's best to not have the foxes guarding the hen houses. But Trump is banking on the broadly-respected Mattis to convince everybody inside the beltway to - - - once again, just like the election - - - act against their own self-interests by letting the military run the military.

It's pretty clear that Trump is gearing up for a series of major wars. He will view geopolitical divisions as a business opportunity. 

In business, the big companies take over the small companies. We've seen that happen countless times in the last century or more. Whether that's good, bad, or ugly is an economic discussion; it's not my point here.

Trump the Simpleton will see the smaller countries as inferior due to their size, and will consider them ripe for takeover by the larger countries. Hence, his adoring fascination with Vladimir Putin and his unprecedented love for Mother Russia.

Trump the Fool will allow/encourage Russia to "consolidate their business operations" by taking over several eastern european countries, effectively re-forming the U.S.S.R. under the standard practices of large corporations. He intends to work with Russia on a variety of business initiatives, in part to ruffle the feathers of China, in part to enrich his family fortune. He only risks world war in doing so, and he has calculated his own survival of such a disaster to be high.

Trump the Assaulter wants to show "American Strength" to the world, using military force to make smaller countries comply with his demands. He wants most of North America and South America to be "owned by" the United States, while ceding most of Europe to the resurrected Soviet Union, putting pressure on China to do what they are told by the superior powers.

He misunderstands China. As much as he loves Mother Russia, he does not "get" the Chinese view of life and their role in the world. There are 1.2-billion Chinese, and they have the longest-running large culture in the world. They will not back down when pressured, and they are not vulnerable to bribes and money. They have more intelligence in their military kitchens than we are about to have in the White House.

China will mop the floor with Trump, but the costs in human lives will be of epic proportions. The likelihood of nuclear weapons usage is very high under Trump.

How many times in United States history has a convicted con-man become President? That question remains officially unanswered, as Donald Trump avoided conviction with an out-of-court settlement last month in the Trump University class-action lawsuit.

We all know the basics, as Trump agreed to pay out 25-million dollars to those aggrieved by his interstate con-game. That case floated over his head during the final stages of the campaign, with the Trump-loving media allowing it to go unmentioned for weeks at a time while it was arguably the number one criteria for selecting the next President. After all, the Republican-loving media had portrayed Hillary Clinton as a criminal without any charges to back up the depiction, yet there were actual charges against Trump implying true criminality in this case. 

Nobody seemed to question why Trump got a free-pass from the courts to wait until after the election to see if there was proof that he was actually guilty. Why did that happen? His lawyers claimed he would be "too busy" to attend to such a case during the campaign. But he was not too busy to hit the road for a Victory Tour. How "favored" can one person be without people noticing?

When Trump agreed to the payout in order to avoid trial, he essentially sent a message confirming his own guilt in the scam. This is not rocket-science or brain-surgery.

When the accused party settles out-of-court,
they are always presumed "guilty".

This means a confirmed con-man is heading to the White House.

How does Trump keep getting away with everything? He will be using this settlement to further avoid paying taxes, as the payments are considered to be a tax-deduction.

Do you remember Trump's twitter-war against the "Hamilton" cast after Mike Pence was booed at a recent performance?

That "performance" by Trump served as "cover-fire"
to distract attention from the class-action settlement.

Since then, we've had multiple recounts, the bogus Carrier "deal", and an "Apprentice-style" parade of potential cabinet appointments dominating the headlines. All of these news-flurries have taken the public eye off of an unprecedented and egregious ethical breach by the person lined-up to take over control of the executive branch of the United States. Trump should be held to scrutiny over his de-facto "guilty verdict", regardless of what he tweets about tomorrow.

Since Time Magazine just named Donald Trump as "Person of the Year", Trumpists everywhere are proclaiming his greatness. But what the herd of Trump Sheep don't understand is that the Time selection is not necessarily a popularity contest. It's more a measurement of "impact", be it positive or negative.

So you might say the "Person of the Year" recipients over the decades have been a combination of "The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly". Charles Lindbergh, Franklin Roosevelt, and Mahatma Gandhi come to mind in the "Good" category. William Westmoreland, Henry Kissinger, Newt Gingrich and Kenneth Starr are names from the "Bad" group.

Trump fits into the "Ugly" category for this award.
He has had impact, and it has been awful.

Here are some of the other folks to get this distinction largely based on their "Ugly" impact on humanity:

  • 1938:  Adolf Hitler
  • 1939:  Joseph Stalin
  • 1957:  Nikita Khruschev
  • 1971:  Richard Nixon
  • 1979:  Ayatollah Khomeni
  • 2007:  Vladimir Putin

Don't believe me? Here's what the magazine said about their award:
"It's hard to measure the scale of his disruption. This real estate baron and casino owner turned reality-TV star and provocateur -- never a day spent in public office, never a debt owed to any interest besides his own -- now surveys the smoking ruin of a vast political edifice that once housed parties, pundits, donors, pollsters, all those who did not see him coming or take him seriously. Out of this reckoning, Trump is poised to preside, for better or worse."

D.J. Trump watched Saturday Night Live" and tweeted out what he thought of Alec Baldwin. Danielle Muscato read the Trumpy Tweets and let the presumptive-president-elect have it in what truly was an epic twitter storm.

What makes the Muscato Message so compelling is that it is so true. Muscato speaks for millions of Americans - - - perhaps tens of millions - - - when she called out Trump over the weekend.

We have transcribed the message here into one single article. Links to Muscato are at the bottom of this post.

=====  =====  =====
You are the president-elect. Pick your f---ing battles, man. You're embarrassing yourself. Alec Baldwin's impression isn't "Sad." You know what's sad? In seven weeks you'll be responsible for 330-million lives and you can't think of anything better to do than tweet about a comedy show. You know that actual lives are at stake, right? You're pathetic. 
This is not a joke, Donald. Don't you have anything better to do? Are you so narcissistic that a PARODY is your priority? Do you know how many transgender people were murdered since Election Day? Do you know how many veterans killed themselves? Do you know how many children went to bed tonight without enough food to eat? Do you even care? What is *wrong* with you?!
No, of course you don't know those things. You don't even know what a "blind trust" is, and you call yourself a businessman. You're pathetic. You ran for president for attention. You are a fake, a fraud. You never wanted to win anyway; we can all see it.You are not fooling anyone. You're scared, and overwhelmed, and you have absolutely no idea what you're doing. And it shows.
You think we're all too polite, too aghast, to call you out. I see through you, Donny. I'm calling you out. You're a joke. With every fiber of my being, I am disgusted by you. And you know what the real secret is? You're disgusted by you, too. That's why you surround yourself with gold, and beautiful women that you objectify. You know you're a loser, so you try to make yourself feel better, feel successful, authoritative, with things, and money. You are an impostor. You are a fraud.
I'm ashamed of you. The world is ashamed. You spout NONSENSE, millions of illegal voters?! Even you don't believe it—absurd. Do you think we're stupid? You think we don't know what you're doing? Trying to control the narrative, get your followers to distrust the media, the polls, news reporters, so that they must turn to YOU for what's true, what's real? There's a name for that. It's "propaganda." We know what you're doing. We will not allow you to suppress votes with this nonsense.
We will not allow you to trample our civil rights! We will not allow you to destroy the progress we've made! WE WILL RESIST. I call upon progressives, Democrats, independents AND Republicans to #RESIST @realDonaldTrump. #RESIST fascism, crony capitalism, hypocrisy!
When @realDonaldTrump "lies," acknowledge and call out as propaganda! When he tests boundaries, acknowledge and call out as fascism! #RESIST
We CANNOT "wait and see." @realDonaldTrump is telling us, here and now, what he is going to do. BELIEVE HIM.
"Millions" of "illegal" votes is not a claim about reality, despite @realDonaldTrump's pretense. It is a warning; a threat. Pay attention—RESIST!
Trump is  TELLING US he'll suppress votes. Our democracy is at stake. We cannot wait, let him enact policy, then whine—We must resist.
Trump tweets so we forget that his kids will run his company in a "blind trust" (!) while sitting in on diplomatic meetings.
Trump tweets so we forget that he is stacking his cabinet with the very same people he promised to remove from his influence.
Trump tweets so we ignore that he's clueless at governance. The more outrageous his tweets, the harder it is for us to keep up.
We see you, Donald. We know exactly what you're doing and it's not working on us. You're a disgrace and you should be ashamed.
The next 4 years will be brutal for me & my fellow civil rights activists. Not all of us will survive. But we will #RESIST
We will #RESIST until racist police are imprisoned. We will #RESIST until FULL equality for women—We will #RESIST. We are ready. We will #RESIST until abortion is accessible to everyone who needs it. Until LGBTQ are safe & healthy, until PoC are safe. You can fight us on it—and you are, and you will. But you will lose. Because history is on our side. We may not live to see but we know we will win. We will fight you every step, so be ready. You can't stop progress, no matter how hard you try.

Donald Trumpet blew his own horn again last week, loudly as usual. The presumptive-president-elect was claiming victory (again) after what can only be described as a mediocre performance, at best.

Trump says he "saved 1000 jobs" at a plant in Indiana, but he conveniently neglected to mention that another 1300 jobs at that same company are still headed to Mexico. Plus, it's not really 1000, it's much closer to 800. So that means that 500 jobs are temporarily staying home, but there is no binding agreement that keeps those jobs permanently in the United States. The original plan to move those operations was not scheduled for completion until 2019, so we won't really know for years whether they even stayed or not. And it only cost millions of dollars of Hoosier taxes to complete this "deal". We wrote about the whole fiasco here.

This latest episode of "Trump in Wonderland" raises a comparison between Barack Obama and this dramatic Batman-to-the-rescue story from Indianapolis. After all, if saving 500, or even 1000 jobs is so impressive, then how well has Obama been doing these last eight years?

How does Trump compare to Obama on the jobs problem?
Has Obama ever "saved" 500-1000 jobs before?

This is actually an easy question to answer. A quick look at the FACTS shows that Trump couldn't carry Obama's jockstrap when it comes to job creation and/or retention.
The Obama Administration has "created" more than 11-million jobs over the past eight years. That works out to an average of nearly 4,000 per DAY.
There were 161,000 jobs added to the United States economy in October, 2016. That's an average of more than 5,000 per DAY
There were 156,000 jobs added to the United States economy in September, 2016. That's an average of more than 5,000 per DAY.
The job gains itemized above are just a glimpse into the overall national economic picture. A detailed summary of job gains and losses over the past years can be found here.
Overall, the official Unemployment Rate dropped from about 10% (where George Bush left it) when Obama took office, to less than 5% now (4.6%). After a bumpy first two years, those numbers have been on a gradual downward slide during the entirety of the Obama Administration.

Trump was squawking like a goose about his great "jobs victory",
but it pales in comparison to what Obama has been doing
on a regular basis for years.

The Carrier deal is just another example of Donald
blowing his Trumpet about Donald.


Saturday, December 3, 2016


We're starting to understand the chosen last name of the presumed-president-elect, Donald Trump. We know that his original family name was "Drumpf", and it was changed by his grandfather to help with business marketing. "Trump", after all, sounds somewhat better than "Drumpf".

But while we may have thought that "Trump" was a play on the word for the most powerful suit in a card-game, perhaps it is actually short for "Trumpet", since that's the role that The Donald seems to
relish the most. He loves to blow his own horn.

As he did in Indiana last week, claiming to have single-handedly "saved" more than 1000 jobs at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis. The mainstream media showed their eternal devotion to the Trumpet, replaying his words ad infinitum, as if they were actually true. As usual, those claims are slightly true, but largely FALSE.

First, let's do the math. There were about 2100 jobs on the line, as Carrier openly discussed pulling up the stakes and moving to Mexico. After the Trump intervention, there are about 1300 jobs still slated for elimination in the United States, while about 800 have been temporarily left in Indiana. Here's what that equation looks like:
  • 2100 scheduled to leave
  • 800 staying
  • 1300 leaving
  • Net Loss of 500 Jobs
Donald Trump failed to "save" 500 jobs at the Carrier plant.

The original company plans to move were not scheduled to be completed until 2019. So we won't know for years whether or not the company actually changed anything, or if they are just negotiating benefits for their company in the post-election political swirling by Trump.

It's been widely reported in the days following "the deal" that Indiana Governor Mike Pence used his unilateral authority to award Carrier with millions of dollars of tax-breaks in order to slow down their moves. And it's been widely speculated that Trump may have promised the company lucrative defense department weapons contracts totalling into the tens of millions, if not billions. But only if they maintain some operations in Indiana. 

Trump played "so tough" with Carrier, didn't he?

The post-game discussion was so harsh on Trump that even Sarah Palin called him out for breaking one of his many campaign promises by offering tax breaks. So did Bernie Sanders.

The Carrier deal put Sarah Palin and Bernie Sanders
on the same page, both criticizing Trump for doing the wrong thing.

Sarah Palin and Bernie Sanders, politically in unison?
That may be Trump's greatest achievement.



(this is a moving news story, so check links for updates)

The Ku Klux Klan loves Donald Trump so much that they felt a need to show their political affection in public, and they are doing so in North Carolina today.

The Klan announced their plan just after the election, and have chosen the town of Pelham to showcase their love/hate relationship with the presumed-president-elect.

Anti-Klan groups have been prepping for this event since it was announced, and hundreds, if not thousands of protesters are streaming into North Carolina for the clash of ideologies.

We are unable to "ride" this story through the day, so look for updates from major news sources. Here is a list to get you started:

Friday, December 2, 2016


To quote Ronald Reagan, "There they go again." The Republicans are trying to stop another national election from reaching it's final conclusion. They have the "results" they want, so there is no need to process the public voting process any longer.

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has filed a lawsuit - - - on behalf of his own party, apparently - - - aimed at stopping the Michigan recount requested legally by Jill Stein. The text of his appeal does nothing to prove that a recount is harmful or even unnecessary, only that a conclusion has been reached, and the State of Michigan must be right until proven wrong, and that there should be no process followed to prove that it's wrong.

Yes, that's a convoluted line of "reasoning".
But it's emblematic of how Republicans are "thinking" right now.

The Schuette lawsuit will go directly to the Michigan Supreme Court, and presumably, carry forward to the United States Supreme Court by whichever party is ruled against by the MSC.

Does this sound familiar?
It's the same thing Republicans did in Florida in 2000.

The Bush v. Gore lawsuit was originated by Republicans who simply wanted vote-counting to stop, since the original count gave their candidate the victory.
