BREAKING NEWS & The Hypocrisy of Trump!

Trump Trade wars with several nations will cost everyone - including his constituents - PLENTY of money! Who will care about unemployment statistics, after they are forced to take a second job to pay for Trump's inflationary decisions?

China is ramping up trade-war tensions after Trump's tariff threat, saying it will 'fight to the end'
Theron Mohamed
Jun. 11, 2019

President Donald Trump threatened to immediately expand tariffs to virtually all Chinese goods if his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, fails to meet him at the G-20 meeting in Japan at the end of the month.

"We're expected to meet and if we do that's fine, and if we don't -- look, from our standpoint the best deal we can have is 25% on $600 billion," Trump told CNBC on Monday.

Trump has already slapped duties on $250 billion of imports from China, and said he could impose tariffs of 25% or "much higher" on a further $300 billion. Products in the firing line include smartphones, laptops, TVs, computer monitors, video-game consoles, and flash drives.

False accusation by the Commander-In-Thief show his hypocrisy:

@realDonaldTrump
Google is helping China and their military, but not the U.S. Terrible! The good news is that they helped Crooked Hillary Clinton, and not Trump....and how did that turn out?

3:07 PM - Mar 16, 2019
Google denied Trump’s accusation in a statement: “We are not working with the Chinese military. We are working with the U.S. government, including the Department of Defense, in many areas including cybersecurity, recruiting and healthcare.”

By using the U.S. Military as a "political tool" http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/06/def-sec-to-white-house-stop-politicizing-the-military.html "pardoning accused war-criminals" https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2019/05/trump-war-crimes-pardons.html and "dishonored U.S. Veterans and the military" https://www.latimes.com/nydn-news-politics-times-trump-insulted-u-s-veterans-military-service-1-3204210-story.html the Criminal-In-Chief proves a disdain for the U.S. Constitution he has sworn to uphold. There is also evidence that Trump was - in fact - a draft-dodger: It’s not an assertion without merit... The New York Times reported that the daughter of the doctor who gave Trump his bone spurs diagnosis did so as a favor to Fred Trump, Donald’s father. http://nymag.com/intelligencer/2019/05/buttigieg-trump-faked-a-disability-to-avoid-vietnam.html

Previously, Trump had played football, tennis and squash; and was taking up golf. His medical history was unblemished, aside from a routine appendectomy when he was 10. But after he graduated from college in the spring of 1968, making him eligible to be drafted and sent to Vietnam, he received a diagnosis that would change his path: bone spurs in his heels.

It’s little secret by now that Trump faked a disability to stay out of the Vietnam War; but he also tried to rewrite history!

"CNN Fact Check" reports silliest Republican lie in recent history! LOL

Fact check: Are migrants at the southern border 'renting babies' to pose as families?
By Priscilla Alvarez and Holmes Lybrand, CNN
Updated 1:40 PM ET, Fri June 7, 2019

Washington (CNN) While discussing his frustration over President Donald Trump's plan to impose tariffs on imports from Mexico, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley on Thursday also addressed the border crisis, claiming that migrants are "renting babies" to game the US immigration system.

"People down there in Central America or Mexico are renting babies to get across the border and then sending the babies back and then renting them again to send them across the border," Grassley told reporters.

Facts first: Immigration and Customs Enforcement says there is evidence that some migrants coming into the US have used children to pose as a family, though the agency has said it's uncommon for an infant to be used for this purpose.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/06/07/politics/migrants-renting-babies-to-cross-border-fact-check/index.html?cid=web-alerts&nsid=76393661

As expected, the "pawn" tRump appointed Secretary of Department of Homeland Security perpetuated the lie, without offering ANY reasonable evidence or reliable statistics to support it.

"BIRTHSTRIKE" in opposition of Climate Change

BirthStrike: The people refusing to have kids, because of climate change
By Stephanie Bailey, CNN

London (CNN)Climate change is rapidly changing the environment... But how far would you be willing to go to help save the planet? Would you skip school? Eat pig's feet? Deliberately get arrested? How about forgo having kids?

For 33-year-old British musician Blythe Pepino the latter is a reality. Her fears about climate change are so strong she has decided not to have biological children.

"I really want a kid," she told CNN. "I love my partner and I want a family with him but I don't feel like this is a time that you can do that."

Pepino believes that there will be an "ecological Armageddon" and founded BirthStrike at the end of 2018. BirthStrike is a group of people who are declaring their decision not to have kids because of climate change.

Cohen's Life Behind Bars

Michael Cohen's life behind bars
By Kara Scannell and Gloria Borger, CNN
Updated 7:35 AM ET, Fri June 7, 2019

(CNN)Michael Cohen was nervous about his new life behind bars. President Donald Trump's former fixer turned star government witness was worried that inmates who supported Trump might bring trouble when he arrived at the Otisville Federal Correctional Institution last month.

Instead, his notoriety has turned him into a celebrity of the cell block. A decade working for the real estate mogul-turned-politician and the scandalous hush money payments made to a former adult film star have become his currency in the new world Cohen has entered, five people familiar with Cohen's experience told CNN.

"He's pleasantly surprised that everyone has been very cordial and have actually been coming up offering him advice about prison life and offering him to come eat lunch with them," a source close to Cohen said.

Inmates have approached Cohen asking him for legal advice and wanting to spend downtime with him. They've quizzed Cohen about what it was like working for Trump and about the payments to actress Stormy Daniels, a second source says.

Breaking News - Trump plans threaten important, foreign intelligence partners...

US intelligence partners wary of Barr's Russia review
By Alex Marquardt and Zachary Cohen, CNN
Updated 4:58 AM ET, Thu May 30, 2019

Washington (CNN)Key allies who share intelligence with the United States could soon be dragged into the middle of Attorney General Bill Barr's politically-charged Justice Department review of how the Russia investigation began.

President Donald Trump has said he wants Barr to look into the role key intelligence partners, including the United Kingdom and Australia... Trump told reporters, "I hope he looks at the UK and I hope he looks at Australia and I hope he looks at Ukraine."

For now, those allies are trying to stay out of the fray, arguing it's a domestic issue. But the President has granted Barr -- not the intelligence community -- sweeping powers to decide what intelligence can be declassified.

That means Barr could potentially reveal intelligence shared with the US by other countries related to Russian election meddling and, in the process, risk damaging those critical relationships with foreign partners.

At least the Criminal-in-Chief has found a friend (or lover) in North Korea

(BBC) Trump on Kim Jong-un: 'We fell in love'
The US president told a rally in Wheeling, West Virginia that the North Korean leader had sent him "beautiful" letters...
https://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-canada-45696420/trump-on-kim-jong-un-we-fell-in-love

Has the Criminal-In-Chief broken a record for US presidential meetings with a North Korean leader?

How many "summits" has Trump had with Kim Jong - a monstrous tyrant, who continues to test nuclear missiles that threaten the USA and MANY other nations?

And, in this VERY recent photo, why is the idiot saluting a North Korean military leader, who was only planning to shake his hand?

MUELLER BREAKS FROM BARR ON TRUMP INVESTIGATION!!!

National Security [section] New York Times
May 29 at 6:21 PM
Mueller’s statement highlights key differences with Barr on investigation of President Trump

By Devlin Barrett
Reporter focusing on national security and law enforcement

Departing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III finally spoke publicly Wednesday, and his carefully chosen comments highlight the ways in which he disagrees with his boss, Attorney General William P. Barr, about the facts and the law surrounding the investigation into President Trump.

“If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so,” Mueller said Wednesday.

[Mueller complained to Barr about his characterization of investigation findings]

Since filing their 448-page report, Mueller and his team have been frustrated by what they perceive as a lack of public understanding about this point...

The president was pleased that Mueller does not want to testify, an aide said...

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, a New York Democrat on the Judiciary Committee, said Mueller’s comments undercut Barr’s past claims.

Congressional Democrats must decide what, if anything, to do with Mueller’s evidence against President Trump, which detailed potential obstruction of justice. (Taylor Turner/The Washington Post)

At some point, Jeffries insisted, "Mueller is going to tell the whole story.”

N.Y.T. briefing: "covering... abortion & rare string of tornadoes"

John Bolton, Tornadoes, Abortion: Your Wednesday Briefing
by Chris Stanford

"We’re covering an apparent divide between President Trump and his national security adviser, a rare string of tornadoes, and the unusual things that New Yorkers take on the subway."

Developing

Robert Mueller, the special counsel, today characterized for the first time his investigation of whether President Trump obstructed justice, saying “if we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so.”

A disconnect on foreign policy
President Trump split from his national security adviser, John Bolton, during their Japan trip that ended on Tuesday, saying that, unlike Mr. Bolton, he was not seeking regime change in Iran. Mr. Trump also contradicted Mr. Bolton by asserting that recent North Korean missile tests had not violated United Nations resolutions.

Background: Mr. Trump chose Mr. Bolton, known for his hawkish foreign policy views, last year as his third national security adviser. Mr. Bolton has learned to brief Mr. Trump effectively, but the two have never bonded on a personal level, according to administration officials.

Related: Mr. Bolton left Japan for the United Arab Emirates, where today he blamed Iran for reported attacks on oil tankers.

WHO THE FUC$K CARE'S ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE vs HUMANS AND OTHER LIVING ENTITIES ON EARTH?
By Coral Davenport and Mark Landler
May 27, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Trump has rolled back environmental regulations, pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord, brushed aside dire predictions about the effects of climate change, and turned the term “global warming” into a punch line rather than a prognosis.

And, in what could be Mr. Trump’s most consequential action yet, his administration will seek to undermine the very science on which climate change policy rests.

Trump rolls back environmental regulations and turns "global warming into a punchline."

Trump Administration Hardens Its Attack on Climate Science
By Coral Davenport and Mark Landler
May 27, 2019

WASHINGTON — President Trump has rolled back environmental regulations, pulled the United States out of the Paris climate accord, brushed aside dire predictions about the effects of climate change, and turned the term “global warming” into a punch line rather than a prognosis.

Now, after two years spent unraveling the policies of his predecessors, Mr. Trump and his political appointees are launching a new assault.

In the next few months, the White House will complete the rollback of the most significant federal effort to curb greenhouse-gas emissions, initiated during the Obama administration. It will expand its efforts to impose Mr. Trump’s hard-line views on other nations, building on his retreat from the Paris accord and his recent refusal to sign a communiqué to protect the rapidly melting Arctic region unless it was stripped of any references to climate change.
