You Can’t Take Him Anywhere

The ABC has a short background piece on Qatar: What caused the crisis and how is Donald Trump involved?

CNN reports Trump is trying to get in line with his own Secretaries of State and Defense.

Meanwhile there are the Iran attacks: Twin assaults on parliament and shrine rock Tehran

Tehran, Iran (CNN)- Attackers have mounted simultaneous gun and suicide bomb assaults on Iran’s parliament building and the tomb of the republic’s revolutionary founder, in one of the most audacious assaults to hit Tehran in decades.

At least 12 people were killed and dozens more injured in the twin assaults on the Iranian capital, state media reported. A third attack was foiled, Iran’s Intelligence.

And Trump can’t even send a “sympathy card” without triggering an international incident:Iran FM Zarif slams ‘repugnant’ Trump statement on Tehran attacks

Iran’s foreign minister has denounced as “repugnant” a White House statement on Wednesday’s terror attack in Tehran that said Iran was a “terror sponsor”.

President Trump had said he was praying for the victims, but added that “states that sponsor terrorism risk falling victim to the evil they promote”.

But Javad Zarif said Iran “rejected such claims of friendship” and claimed the attackers from so-called Islamic State had been “backed by US clients”.

Thirteen people died in the attacks.

He refuses to read briefing papers, and doesn’t know what his own State and Defense Departments are doing.

How’s your blood pressure these day’s m8? I had to up my hypertension med’s. Stronger one called “Twynsta 40/5”. May have to go up to 40/10 the way things are going! Still… The UK elections gives some hope. *shrug*

I did get a huge smile out of this massive put down of the Trumps & Trump Jr. especially! 😀

Nicole Wallace shreds Trump Jr: ‘A guy who kills baby elephants for kicks’ can’t bash Comey’s character

Ahem. Well, I hope your BP is good m8!

DOJ: Trump can accept payments from foreign governments

No comment.

Ms Wallace was the communications director for the White House under the Shrubbery, not a raving left wing nut case. Junior and his brother, Eric, are even more worthless than their father.

Those arguments are just the start of a long process. They are actually pretty meaningless. The emoluments clause is fairly straight forward, and says you can’t take money from foreign governments. Trump could have avoided all of the problems by putting his money in a blind trust, but he refused to do that. There are people with very obvious standing, i.e. they are financially injured by Trump’s not divorcing himself from his holdings, so the case will go forward.

You know the huuuuuuuge arm’s deal with Saudi Arabia? Not so much! Not at all actually!

BREAKING: Trump’s Saudi Arms Deal Is Actually Fake

It’s actually no surprise at all! Given everything about Trump is as real as a $3 bill with his face on it! 😆

No President cuts a trade deal. This kabuki was about giving executive branch approval for the Saudis to begin negotiations with the US military industrial complex about arms deals. Weapons deals with the US have to be cleared in advance. Once the Saudis finish their deal, the end product has to be cleared a second time before the sale can go through. It will be years.

Oh yes! I sure know all about that. I knew it was BS. It’s just nice to see someone in the media finally doing some real investigative reporting! About time. I hope they keep the momentum going.

The media should have known the procedure and reported it properly the first time.

8 Kryten42 { 06.17.17 at 11:31 am }

For sure. And in fact some the MSM are only just reporting something about it. It was TPM that broke it. I’m sure at least some of the MSM knew it, but were probably told to STFU by their masters who still haven’t gotten a handle on the internet yet. 😉 😆

Trump hasn’t did much of anything except waste tax dollars by going to his properties on weekends. He is a PowerPoint President – he calls meetings to announce ‘vision statements, but doesn’t actually accomplish anything.
