March 17th - Feinstein hints at a Trump resignation:

http://www.latimes.com/politics/esse...htmlstory.html

Feinstein was also asked by one protester about Trump’s business connections and how the president might be removed from office.

“We have a lot of people looking at this, technical people,” she said. “And I think he is going to get himself out.”

Don't forget the kid who drove into the gates of Mar a Lago last weekend when Trump was there.

The US are working on a bid for the 2026 FIFA World Cup. The FIFA president has already said that the travel ban puts that bid at risk. Iran, for instance, are a decent team who have qualified for past tournaments. If you can't even guarantee that participants will be allowed in the country, that seems like a big black mark. The same applies for all future sporting events as an example. Why should anybody plan on hosting international events in the US right now?

Because under the table payments are what matters. FIFA will be hosting back to back tournaments in the well known human rights proponents of Russia and Qatar. The Olympics went to China and Russia (and will be back in China soon), again, those wonderful respecters of human rights. So long as the bribes are there, that's what really matters. Plus the IOC owes NBC a US Olympics soon.

The "Saudi Arabia gave $20 million" was a Trump campaign thing. Trump demanded Clinton return the "$25 million" Saudi Arabia has given to the Clinton Foundation. https://www.facebook.com/DonaldTrump...7164335365725#

When pressed, the Trump campaign, of course, could provide no evidence of any money having come from Saudi Arabia.

Despite non-profits not being required to disclose their donors, the Clinton Foundation largely has, Politifact learned the following:

Quote:
It’s now possible to look up donation amounts on the Clinton Foundation’s website. Using Trump’s Saudi Arabia example, Saudi Arabia shows up as having given between $10 million and $25 million since the foundation started [in 1997].
It took me 4 minutes to learn all this information by googling "Trump Clinton Saudi Arabia 20 million"

In regards to campaign promises, Trump thus far has achieved 9 of his campaign promises, broken 13, compromised on 2, begun progress on 17, and had no action on 138.
https://trumptracker.github.io/

Kept:
Hiring freeze on Fed employees; Eliminate 2 regs for every 1 new one; lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying for foreign govs; withdraw from TPP; approve Keystone; Begin process of choosing SCOTUS judge; Suspend immigration from 'terror prone' regions; "extreme vetting"; allow exceptions to "Muslim Ban."

Broken:
Refuse President's salary and only take $1; Everyone will say "Merry Christmas" again; Never take a vacation while serving as President; Assign a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton; Won't tweet anymore when President; Will fight for the LGBT community; Make the wealthy pay more in taxes; Get rid of Sanctuary Cities; Deport "criminal illegal immigrants" within 1 hour of being sworn in; Establish consequences for burning American flag; Get rid of gun-free-zones on his 1st day in Office; Save Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security without cutting benefits; Complete ban on all Muslim entry to US.

Apparently a new travel regulation to be announced tomorrow will restrict passengers on specific airlines from having any electronic bigger than a cell phone in the cabin on US inbound flights. Here is one source but there are a number out there.

Good to see Trump and company continue to see how much damage they can do to tourism in America.

A little subtly maybe?

Quote:
U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson plans to skip an April 5-6 meeting of NATO foreign ministers for a U.S. visit by the Chinese president and will travel to Russia later in the month, U.S. officials said on Monday, a step allies may see as putting Moscow's concerns ahead of theirs.

Tillerson intends to miss what would be his first meeting in Brussels with the 28 NATO members to attend President Donald Trump's expected April 6-7 talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, four current and former U.S. officials said.

The decisions to skip the NATO meeting and to visit Moscow risked feeding a perception that Trump may be putting U.S. dealings with big powers before those of smaller nations that depend on Washington for their security, said two former U.S. officials.

Trump has often praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, and Tillerson worked with Russia's government for years as a top executive at Exxon Mobil Corp, and has questioned the wisdom of sanctions against Russia that he said could harm U.S. businesses.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner had no immediate comment on whether Tillerson would skip the NATO meeting or visit Russia. Two U.S. officials said Tillerson planned to visit Moscow on April 12.

This whole thing just gets more and more absurd by the day.

http://www.cnbc.com/2017/03/20/first...ng-office.html

Quote:
Ivanka Trump is working out of a West Wing office and will get access to classified information, though she is not technically serving as a government employee.

Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for Ivanka Trump, said Monday that the first daughter will not have an official title, but will get a West Wing office, government-issued communications devices and security clearance to access classified information.
So she's not an elected official, but she'll be able to access classified government documents? Sure, why not.

^ To be fair, is it really that weird (besides the Nepotism and lack of title)? Lots of White House staffers aren't elected and have access to classified documents.

They're also usually properly vetted and have the necessary knowledge to handle sensitive documents

Except she's not an employee with any specified role. She's just his daughter with access to classified info and an office in the white house

Rare, I know, but I really want Kellyanne all over TV in the coming days so that this can consistently be brought up. I wanna see if she actual physical contorts into a pretzel trying to twist and spin this.

Assuming she is clever enough, perhaps trying to get herself out of Trumpland while the getting is good.

Her husband is about to get a Trump job too.
