Trump Pledge to Help China Telecom Co. Comes Days After China Approved Large Trump Project

This story is new and breaking on MSNBC as I write. But I must get it out because you deserve to know the truth immediately, given that I wrote just days ago about Trump’s pledge to void/help a Chinese telecom company fined $1.2 billion by Trump’s own fking Commerce Department. I wrote – and you of course knew – that Trump’s “America First” promise comes with an asterisk bigger than a basketball, the one asterisk being “unless I get millions out of the deal.” We knew that Trump had a side arrangement.

Well, even I didn’t think it would only take days to get the news that the Trump “pledge” came only days after the Chinese government approved a huge Trump project in China. Obviously, that is why Trump momentarily had a “China First” promise, noting that he couldn’t possibly allow that $1.2 billion dollar fine to be enforced because, as he said, “too many Chinese jobs would be lost.”

Concern about Chinese jobs? When the company blatantly cheated U.S. sanctions on two countries building nukes to kill people?

Fines issued by the United States government generally go first to American people hurt by the company fined, and then possibly to the department issuing the fine, to assist programs to enforce regulations that brought about the fine. Often neither category fits, in such cases the money goes to the federal general fund. We likely don’t even want to know how much $1.2 billion could assist poor kids with cancer, asthma, cerebral palsy, how many elderly who cannot afford nursing home care despite desperate need could be assisted, or the desperately needed bridges and road repairs that amount could fund, could even go to science done to cure cancer. Yet Trump is concerned about the number of Chinese jobs lost.

By the way, each of those causes listed above, they assist with American jobs.

But, Trump had a deal made. How the deal got made, who the fk knows, because it wasn’t through official channels. If the smallest magistrate judge in your town or city offered a ruling in exchange for $1,000 – he’s be fired, and face criminal charges. The President of the United States can do it out in the open, because “the president cannot have a conflict,” Trump says. It is true that the law currently doesn’t require the president to declare and reject conflicts, but that is mostly because Congress and previous presidents never even envisioned the possible need for one, given the obvious principle.

I am so mad it is hard to write right now. I apologize for any typos or grammatical errors.

Dozens of mothers rally around Kavanaugh accuser’s home in a show of support

As questions swirl around Trump Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, and how truly awful a person he has possibly always been, the conservative forces in our culture are working relentlessly to discredit Professor Christine B. Ford. Ford has accused Kavanaugh of attempting to sexually assault her back in high school, and Republican officials continue to expose themselves for the sorry misogynists that they are, with right-wing media misinforming the public at every turn. Even our sexual assaulter in chief’s children have gotten into the game of slut-shaming, and of spewing deep-state conspiracy-theory rhetoric that incites their minions to threaten Christine Ford’s life.

A group of over thirty women and a handful of men convened at Ford’s home in Palo Alto in a show of support on Thursday. The Mercury News reports that the supporters chanted “We believe Christine. Her story is our story!”

“I’m here today for all of my friends who are too retraumatized to come, who say ‘I can’t go through this again,”” said Jill Rege, who lives in Palo Alto. “They can barely get out of bed because it puts them right back where they were 25 or 30 years ago. They hid, they shoved it down, but they all remember.”

We believe Christine.

If this allegation is true (along with others) than it is apparent that Trump supporters oppose abortion except in cases where the fetus is an inconvenience to the father.

Raw Story

“According to a court filing, President Donald Trump’s former aide Jason Miller allegedly gave a pregnant stripper an abortion pill without her knowledge.

The court document obtained by Splinter News was filed in Miami-Dade Circuit Court. The stripper’s name was not identified and the report referred to her as Jane Doe.

After engaging in a sexual relationship with Jane Doe, Miller discovered she was pregnant. He then “Unbeknownst to Jane Doe, [gave her a] smoothie  [that] contained an abortion pill.”

The pill had traumatic effects on Jane Doe. “The pill-induced an abortion and Jane Doe wound up in a hospital emergency room, bleeding heavily and nearly went into a coma. The unborn child died,” the report stated.”

Fortunately, the male involved suffered no consequences. /s

Yet.

Trump Offends Poland This Week By Disrespecting Polish President

Trump Offends Poland This Week By Disrespecting Polish President

Polish President Andrzej Duda visited the White House on Tuesday, and although he was pleased with the visit, many other polish citizens were left less than thrilled. In fact, Trump managed to offend the Poles so deeply that the fallout was all over Polish news sites on Wednesday morning.

At the end of the meeting between Duda and Trump, the two leaders signed a strategic partnership pact to boost defense, energy, trade and security ties.  The moment was captured in a photo that was…uh…awkward.

Polish radio correspondent Pawel Zuchowski commented, “It’s nice of President Trump that he moved a bit, because otherwise our president would have had to sign the document on his knees.”

International diplomacy scholar Janusz Sibora called the incident an “offense” in an interview with Gazeta, a polish news site, which also compared the meeting with Trump’s ceremonial signing of an agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un earlier this year, when both leaders sat at the same table.

“The message is clear: Americans do not respect Poles,” Sibora said. “If we sign such an important document in that way, we should ask ourselves whether this wasn’t detrimental to the honor of Poland.”

Pawel Zalewski, of the opposition liberal-conservative party wrote, “Signing a Polish-American declaration at the desk of the American president, while he is sitting, and [the Polish president] is standing is a symbolic confirmation [of] @AndrzejDuda as a customer [of] @realDonaldTrump. We have never been so low.”

Even Former President and Nobel Prize winner, Lech Walesa had a negative opinion of the encounter.  Walesa appeared to troll Duda on Facebook with a photo of Walesa sitting with Trump standing next to him.  “You find difference,” read the caption.

Znajdź różnice.You find difference.

Posted by Lech Wałęsa on Tuesday, September 18, 2018

There was no sign, however, that Duda himself was bothered by the photo. He rejected the criticism and posted a more pleasant view of the visit on Twitter, hailing it as a success.
