Rogue POTUS Staff
who reports from inside the white House!

So far they have revealed that Trump wanted to call Putin with no witnesses, but Bannon and Priebus insisted on being there.
They seem to be suspicious...gee, I wonder why?

Wants to be the President who will be remembered as a King. His words, not ours.

There is now a Twitter account calling itself @RoguePOTUSStaff which purports to consist of a group of White House staffers who believe Donald Trump is out of control and want to rein him in. Because they need to remain anonymous for their own professional safety, there’s no way to independently prove that they are who they say they are.
But what they’ve been leaking, for instance Trump’s plan to tweet that he didn’t want to meet with the Mexican President, have matched up with how things ended up playing out. That gives credence to the other things they’ve tweeted, and some of them are eye popping.

Wants to be ‘the President who will be remembered as a King.’ His words, not ours.”
And then there’s the assertion that “Nobody’s really sure who’s in charge” in the White House because Trump is “easily manipulated with smooth compliments.”

Trump purportedly loved it when Kellyanne Conway made her “alternative facts” flub on national television, because while he thinks she’s “dumb” he liked the idea that everyone would be talking about it — presumably taking the heat off his own scandals. And then there’s the assertion that Trump keeps going around telling everyone that the White House is “a little drab for what I’m used to,” suggesting he’s too hung up on the aesthetics of the place to focus on the job.

Here is what you can do to help:


All immigrants should pretend to be Christians. You know, like Republicans do.

Madeleine Albright's heart felt response to the Muslim ban:


Please! see this part of the immigration ban order he just wrote:


this is the silent objective from the religious right, who want this country to be all white, all Christian.

Specifically banning any specific religion is contrary to the Constitution, and why Dems must not let another right wing Justice ascend to the Supreme Court.

So what is he tweeting now? Castigating the WaPo for saying he will lose the election.

3 tweets about the "failing WaPo" for being wrong.

THAT is what he is doing during this, of all days.
He has enough spare time to use his unsecured Android to rant about the god damn election!!!!

New development about that wall

BREAKING NEWS: Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto announces "Escalera Tax," a 20% tax on the $236 Billion in goods imported from the US to Mexico. (Machinery, electronics, agriculture, etc.)
Pena Nieto said the tax revenue would be used to buy 32,000 extension ladders to be placed every 100 yards along the 2,000 mile "Trump Wall," rendering it useless. Pena Nieto said he could get a good deal on ladders from their other major trading partner, China, at about $30 each, for a total under $1 million.
Speaking through a translator, Nieto said the ladder tax will leave Mexico with over $47 Billion left over to give back to the people of Mexico to help cover any costs from the "Wall Tax" by that "pinche pendejo" from the north, more than defraying price increases for Mexicans buying US cars and shopping at the hundreds of Walmarts and Home Depots in Mexico.
This is a great windfall for the Mexican people, "Muchisimas gracias, Presidente Trump!" concluded the Mexican President.

Mystery solved: President Trump's executive orders are reportedly being written by Steve Bannon.

And they are not being run by the agencies they affect.

President Donald Trump’s team made little effort to consult with federal agency lawyers or lawmakers as they churned out executive actions this week, stoking fears the White House is creating the appearance of real momentum with flawed orders that might be unworkable, unenforceable or even illegal.

The White House didn’t ask State Department experts to review Trump’s memorandum on the Keystone XL pipeline, even though the company that wants to build the pipeline is suing the U.S. for $15 billion, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Defense Secretary James Mattis and CIA Director Mike Pompeo were “blindsided” by a draft order that would require agencies to reconsider using interrogation techniques that are currently banned as torture, according to sources with knowledge of their thinking.

Just a small circle of officials at the Department of Health and Human Services knew about the executive action starting to unwind Obamacare, and only less than two hours before it was released. Key members of Congress weren’t consulted either, according to several members. And at a conference in Philadelphia, GOP legislators say they had no idea whether some of the executive orders would contrast with existing laws — because they hadn't reviewed them.

Has your Senator taken money from Betsy DeVos? Find out here, and call them on it.

21 members of the Senate Committee considering Betsy DeVos's nomination for Secretary of Education have taken tens of thousands of dollars of campaign contributions from Betsy DeVos and her family - a total of more than $950,000!

“Hi, I’m a constituent, and I’m very concerned about the contributions he/she has received from Betsy DeVos and her family. Senator (name) should recuse him/herself from voting on her confirmation to avoid the appearance of pay-to-play politics. I hope Senator (name) does the right thing and recuses him/herself. Thank you.”
