      Good. CBP has still been harassing Muslims despite courts decreeing that Trump’s Muslim Executive Order is illegal and unconstitutional. They need to back down.

    How many of Trump Regime Unfit idiots are being escorted by Taxpayers $$ and what were the cost to past Administrations? Trump has all these Billionaires supporting his Undemocratic Regime……they should be paying for his Flunkies’ protection.

      Why isn’t Trump being held responsible for this? I recall all the harassment President Obama was subjected to based on problems at the VA which predated his administration.

      Trump Threatens to Withhold Payments to Insurers to Press Democrats on Health Bill
      ‘Democrats will start calling me’ if turmoil hits insurance markets, President Donald Trump tells The Wall Street Journal

      This is no president. This is an insane man given power by ignorant deplorables.

        I heard this this morning on NPR and emailed my two Senators. I asked them the question if there was any legal way given the EVERY branch of government is controlled by the GOP of getting rid of the incompetent lying bully that is CIC? Stated the health care threat and nuclear threat to N Korea as justification among many unstated concerns.

    • April 13, 2017 at 7:33 am

      If Trump goes with this I hope the Dems stand their ground. Unless Pelosi can peal off some Repubs to form a coalition. If not we just will have to stand firm

    President Donald Trump, in a joint news conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, said he no longer believes that the organization is “obsolete,” a view he expressed during the 2016 campaign.

    “I said it was obsolete. It is no longer obsolete,” Trump said, citing the group’s recent anti-terrorism efforts. Stoltenberg noted in his opening remarks that NATO soldiers have fought terrorism for many years, including in Afghanistan.

    “In facing our common challenges, we must also ensure that NATO members meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe. Many have not been doing that,” Trump said.

    Trump said during the news conference that US relations with Russia “may be at an all-time low.”

    He also called Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad a “butcher” and defended the US missile strikes in Syria last week that came in response to a chemical attack there. “I have absolutely no doubt that we did the right thing,” Trump said.

    Man who was our Foreign Minister for meany years (Sec of State – like) said a few words about the man who would be king

    “Donald Trump is the most psychologically ill-equipped president in US history, according to former foreign minister Gareth Evans.
    “Personally driven by instinct and impulse, unhampered by knowledge or judgment, he has led an administration acting so far on the basis of postures rather than policies,” Mr Evans will say in a speech today to the National Press Club.

    Gareth Evans says Australia should focus more on Asia, and less on the US.
    “While the commentariat is beginning to find some comforting early signs that the adults are regaining charge of foreign policy, anyone betting on this administration delivering consistent, coherent, constructive and decent outcomes over the next four years is making a very big gamble indeed.”


    It is time politicians worldwide started to call him out.

    The world can and will go on without the US and we are the biggest loser. This country has become a pariah state, ruled by an ignorant despot and his greedy, equally ignorant and amoral cohorts in less than 100 days.

    Almost a hundred days into Trump’s Presidency, it’s obvious that he has no agenda or coherent ideology. But two qualities that clearly have no place in his muddled, deconstructive Administration are caution and restraint. As a result, the planet, and everything on it, will suffer.

    I don’t know how many others are currently living their lives on edge like me;

    living with the anticipation that something huge had better break (and fast) so as to change the current dangerous and morally-bankrupt direction the US and the world are trying to taken by this putin puppet;

    how could non-voters and millions of voters inflict so much trauma on everyone????

    something had better happen ……

      GE JER.

      And Mystic Seminars is excited to host him!

      Bill R. and Judith Fardig — apparently this is a get-together for wedding photographers — here’s info on 2018 event:
      “Mystic Seminars is going into the fourth year in the fun and quirky city of Portland, Oregon where their motto is “Keep Portland Weird” The 13th annual Mystic Seminars, January 8-11, 2018, will be held at the gorgeous Benson Hotel in downtown Portland, Oregon with Mystic special pricing of $139 per night.”

      Since Pete included a pic from Japan, here’s my favorite @PeteSouza photograph of PBO in Japan:

      And here’s a reminder of PBO’s final visit with Japanese PM Abe last December (seems like a lifetime ago, no?):

    GOP Rep. Greg Walden, the only Republican Congressman from Oregon, who helped frame the ACA repeal bill, gets hounded by hordes of angry Oregonians today at a town hall in The Dalles, Oregon. Tomorrow he goes to Bend, Oregon. I hope he gets the same treatment.

    but also nepotism which is compounded by inexperience in anything about government is still wrong and illegal;

    bottom line: bannon, ivanka, kushner should not be in the WH and all should follow an impeached and jailed corrupt trump & pence and their corrupt billionaire cabinet;
