I think that "speech" in Arizona might have really revealed what an unbalanced man-child he really is.

The Americans desperately need to find a way to get rid of this goof sooner rather than later. :smt045

What if Steve Bannon Is Right?

In normal times, you could bank the bet that a man who was a Russian stooge, gave comfort to neo-Nazis and spent his first year in office trying to take health care from 22 million Americans was going to get destroyed when voters finally had a chance to send him a message.

Add to that an approval rating that hit 34 percent this week, and a poll from swing states showing one in five of people who voted for Donald Trump are now embarrassed by his presidency, and you’d think Democrats were in great shape for next year’s midterm elections.

But consider Steve Bannon’s parting political words, which were largely overlooked in the chaos of his exit. You heard the jokes — Trump finally found a racist monument he could get rid of, one of the better ones. But they obscure a dark doctrine from Bannon the Barbarian.

“The longer they talk about identity politics, I got ’em,” he said of Democrats. “I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.”

He may be right. More than anything else, the white voters who drifted from President Barack Obama in 2012 to Trump last year — a seemingly incongruent transition — sealed the Republican victory.

Adding to his "legacy". Draining the swamp in Arizona …

The disturbing lessons of Trump's shameful Arpaio pardon

During his very loosely hinged extemporaneous remarks in Phoenix on Tuesday, President Trump strongly hinted that he would pardon the infamous former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. On Friday evening, with a frightening hurricane descending on Texas, Trump made it official. The decision to issue his first pardon to a public official who made his reputation, such as it is, through race-baiting and a contempt for both legal restraints and basic human decency tells us a lot about Trump — and none of it is good.

<snip>

It should go without saying that Arpaio is a terrible candidate for a pardon. If you have any doubts, read this chilling 2009 profile of Arpaio by William Finnegan in The New Yorker. Arpaio's first claim to local fame was to make the conditions of imprisonment for inmates under his jurisdiction as inhumane as possible — housing thousands of people in tents next to cites like dumps and waste disposal plants in the brutal Arizona heat. He fed inmates for 30 cents a meal, two meals a day, and then made the Food Network one of three channels available to prisoners. He put many people who were being held for trial and had not been convicted of any crime to work on chain gangs. Under his watch, guards were so consistently cruel to inmates that the county had amassed more than $40 million in civil damages from lawsuits. And he also engaged in egregious racial profiling when detaining people suspected of being illegal immigrants.

Arpaio's focus on abusing prisoners and arbitrarily detaining people of Latin American descent also made his "tough on crime" reputation grossly misleading. The resources wasted on his cruel publicity stunts took money away from law enforcement, slowing response times and leading to (among other problems) hundreds of botched or perfunctory sex crimes investigations. He did, however, find the time to file frivolous charges against two journalists who were looking into his suspicious property dealings, leading to another huge legal settlement for Maricopa County's taxpayers to pay off.

So of course it's completely logical that Trump would be a fan of Sherrif Joe.

<snip>

The crime that Arpaio was convicted for exemplifies his revolting career. In 2011, a federal judge found that Arpaio's detentions of people suspected of being illegal immigrants and nothing else were unconstitutional. Arpaio refused to comply, continuing to violate the Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights of numerous "suspects." Finally, earlier this year he was found to have been in contempt of court for refusing to comply with a judicial order.

Pardoning Arpaio under these circumstances is a gross affront to the principle of the rule of law.

<snip>

Unfortunately, the presidential pardon power is unreviewable. Short of impeaching and removing Trump, there is no remedy for this disgraceful pardon. Instead, it is yet another hard lesson of the dangers inherent in giving the awesome powers of the presidency to a man who is thoroughly unfit for office in any respect.

I had no idea about that man being like that. I had heard he is "tough on crime" but that was about it, not the details.

Unbelievable!

How Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump have restarted the war on drugs

<snip>

“The war on drugs has never been about the war on drugs; it’s always been about controlling and prosecuting and persecuting certain communities,” says Michael Collins, the deputy director for national affairs at the Drug Policy Alliance in Washington. “This is not a scientific judgment on drugs or what drugs do to you. This is about people governed by zealotry,” he adds. “The very foundation of the war on drugs is racism and xenophobia.”

America’s drug war seems increasingly “intended as a war on the poor”, Baltimore journalist David Simon told the Guardian in 2013. “It may have begun a long time ago as a war on dangerous drugs, but at some point it morphed, to the point where it was really about social control,’’ ...

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/politics/ ... &ocid=iehp

Like not enough tax dollars (in the many billions already) already completely and utterly wasted on an unwinnable “war” that has already lead to increased use, increased supply and countless numbers of destroyed lives. This is the conservative way of thinking – take a purely ideological strategy that has never worked and that has just made the situation much worse, ignore all the research and evidence proving that the strategy is a dismal failure (at reducing drug use and availability) and keep at it. As suggested, this “war” is less about drug control and more about social control. Worth the billions in tax dollars I suppose.

Pardoning hate criminals.
Now ethno-cleansing.

Ivanka Trump has learned well from her father’s cons

Ivanka Trump is for working women the way her father is for the working class:
In both cases, the Trumps really just want their money.

‘Trump betrays everyone’

The move should come as no surprise to students of Trump’s long history of broken alliances and agreements. In business, his personal life, his campaign and now his presidency …

He also repeatedly demonstrates that, while he demands absolutely loyalty from others, he is ultimately loyal to no one but himself. [woefully unsuited as presidential material]

“It makes all of their normalizing and ‘Trumpsplaining’ look silly and hollow,” said Rick Wilson, a Republican strategist sharply critical of Trump, referring to his party’s congressional leaders. “Trump betrays everyone: wives, business associates, contractors, bankers and now, the leaders of the House and Senate in his own party. They can’t explain this away as [a] 15-dimensional Trump chess game. It’s a dishonest person behaving according to his long-established pattern.”

^^ It's a trait that's indicative of a narcissist.

I wish I could find some of these Tina Fuller quotes about narcissistic parents that weren't meme's because I'm too lazy to type them out. But she hits the nail on the head explaining Trump's behaviour to a tee.

Trump pushes Congress to 'move fast' on tax reform

Trump's tweet comes as his administration looks to achieve their first legislative victory during his eight months in office, although no tax package has been introduced.

http://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/world/tru ... &ocid=iehp

Poor Donny. Eight months in and still a big zero for his list of accomplishments. Finding out that actually achieving something is much more difficult than simply destroying what others before him have accomplished. What a legacy. What a goof.

I've already proven why he's the worse president ever. The FACTS speak for themselves. Also, Obama was the best president. Bush was also very bad...
