Lowest Approval Rating in History – Welcome to the “Ghetto”, Chumph

Even folks who voted for him are learning to hate him…

Donald Trump is historically unpopular as he reaches the 100-day mark

He is the first president since modern polling began to fall below 50 percent at this point in his presidency

Less than two weeks after a Gallup survey discovered a 17-point drop in the number of Americans who believe President Donald Trump keeps his promises, a new poll reveals that Trump has the lowest approval rating of any president at their 100-day mark since the start of the survey.

Only 44 percent of Americans approve of how Trump is handling the presidency at this point in his administration, compared to 54 percent who disapprove, according to a recent poll by CNN/ORC.  This puts him at the bottom of the list of 12 presidents (himself included). The next lowest, Bill Clinton, had a 55 percent approval rating at this point in his administration.

Although there is a sharp partisan divide in voters’ perceptions of Trump — 85 percent of Republicans approve of him, compared to only 8 percent of Democrats — there is bad news for Trump even within his own party. While 82 percent of Republicans had a lot of confidence in Trump’s ability to handle the economy, that number has fallen to 72 percent now. Similarly, Trump has experienced a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he will appoint the best people to office, a 9 point drop among Republicans who are confident in his leadership skills, a 13 point drop in Republicans who believe he can unite the country, an 8 point drop in Republicans who believe he will effectively manage the government, and a 10 point drop in Republicans who think he cares about people like themselves.

A recent Fox News Poll contains similarly inauspicious findings for the president. It puts Trump’s approval rating at 45 percent, well below the marks attained by Barack Obama (62 percent) and George W. Bush (63 percent) at this point in their presidencies. Perhaps most strikingly, only 36 percent of voters say they would want to re-elect Trump, compared to 55 percent who would not — of whom 47 percent say they would “definitely” vote for someone else. Even among people who voted for Trump in 2016, only 49 percent said they would definitely vote to reelect him in 2020. By contrast, Barack Obama had 64 percent support among his own voters from 2008 at this point in his administration (his overall reelection number was 52 percent).

Oh yeah…

Former Chumph NSC Adviser Flynn Now Under Investigation By Pentagon

Every day, another layer of dirt on Putin’s Bitch’s boys taking bribes from Russia.

Elijah Cummings just released new docs that destroy Mike Flynn’s defense for taking foreign cash

Newly released documents reveal that the Department of Defense warned former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn against taking money from foreign governments — but nevertheless, he persisted.

CNN reports that the new documents show Flynn was warned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to not accept cash from foreign governments in 2014 as he entered retirement. Flynn nonetheless took money from both the Russian and Turkish governments for paid speeches and for lobbying work, respectively.

“These documents raise grave questions about why General Flynn concealed the payments he received from foreign sources after he was warned explicitly by the Pentagon,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), who released the documents on Thursday. “Our next step is to get the documents we are seeking from the White House so we can complete our investigation. I thank the Department of Defense for providing us with unclassified versions of these documents.”

In a press statement on the documents, Cummings also noted that the newly revealed DIA letter “counters the suggestion by Flynn’s attorney on Tuesday that Flynn followed appropriate procedures for accepting foreign funds for his trip to Moscow.”

Both Cummings and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) this week said that it appeared that Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, might have committed a felony by not disclosing payments he received from foreign governments before he assumed the role of national security adviser.

What’s that thing Stevie Wonder sang?

“So, it’s gettin’ ready to blow
It’s gettin’ ready to show
Somebody shot off at the mouth and
We’re gettin’ ready to know

It’s gettin’ ready to drop
It’s gettin’ ready to shock
Somebody done turned up the heater
An’a it’s gettin’ ready to pop”

ANOTHER Chumph Smackdown! Federal Judge Rules Executive Order Unconstitutional

I can imagine the Chumph can’t wait to get his stooges on the benches across America so he can twist and destroy the Constitution…

But right now he is stuck with those that are in place.

On the Chumph “Executive Order” on Sanctuary Cities, withdrawing all Federal funding...

“Although the Government’s new interpretation of the Order  is not legally plausible, ineffect it appears to put the parties in general agreement regarding the Order’s constitutional
limitations. The Constitution vests the spending powers in Congress, not the President, so the Order cannot constitutionally place new conditions on federal funds. Further, the Tenth Amendment requires that conditions on federal funds be unambiguous and timely made; that they bear some relation to the funds at issue; and that the total financial incentive not be coercive.Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the President disapproves.”

Flynn likely broke the law by failing to disclose foreign payments, House Oversight leaders say

Image result for Michael Flynn CanaryFormer national security adviser Michael Flynn likely broke the law by failing to disclose foreign income he earned from Russia and Turkey, the heads of the House Oversight Committee said Tuesday.

Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) and ranking member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) said they believe Flynn neither received permission nor fully disclosed income he earned for a speaking engagement in Russia and lobbying activities on behalf of Turkey when he applied to reinstate his security clearance, after viewing two classified memos and Flynn’s disclosure form in a private briefing Tuesday morning.

“Personally I see no evidence or no data to support the notion that General Flynn complied with the law,” Chaffetz told reporters following the briefing.

“He was supposed to get permission, he was supposed to report it, and he didn’t,” Cummings said.

Another Conservative Icon, Rush Limbaugh Radio Headed for the Dumpster

Oh my…Add to the death toll of conservatwit blowhards…

Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity face uncertain futures with iHeartMedia

24k Gold Microphone for sale…Cheap!

Top radio station owner and programming syndicator says it might not exist in 12 months

The parent company of iHeartCommunications, which syndicates programs by conservative talk-show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, appears to be headed toward bankruptcy.

In a statement filed last week with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the federal agency charged with regulating companies that offer investments to the public, iHeartCommunications’ parent company, iHeartMedia Inc., said that it had “substantial doubt” that it would be in business by the middle of next year.

Beyond syndicating shows by Limbaugh, Hannity and other hosts like Steve Harvey and Ryan Seacrest, iHeartCommunications owns and operates more than 800 radio stations. It also sells ads on thousands of billboards across the country.

The radio industry as a whole has been fading away, not because people aren’t tuning in but rather because advertisers have been shifting their dollars to the online world where performance can be measured much more effectively, according to radio industry veteran Seth Resler: “What many people don’t realize is that the job of a radio salesperson is getting harder as more and more clients start thinking about advertising as a science and not an art,” Resler wrote. “As an industry, we simply aren’t providing them with the tools they need to compete against these new mediums.”

According to a 2016 Pew Research Center report, more than 90 percent of Americans said they have listened to radio via an online or broadcast form in a given week.

The ad challenge is made worse for iHeartCommunications since many of its stations feature a conservative talk format whose audience is literally dying off. According to industry figures, the age of a talk show listener is about 67. Further complicating things for the company has been that its top host, Limbaugh, has immersed himself in several controversies in recent years, such as the time he called a liberal activist a “slut” on the air.

Being in an expensive, dying and controversial industry isn’t good for stock prices, which is why in 2008, iHeartCommunications became a wholly owned subsidiary of iHeartMedia in a $24 billion stock buyout transaction initiated by Bain Capital, the investment firm for which past GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney labored for many years.

That buyout option saddled iHeartMedia with a huge amount of debt, almost $350 million of which is about to come due, according to MarketWatch reporter Ciara Linnane.

In December ratings agency Moody’s said that iHeartMedia had a “negative” outlook, a sign that its already junk-level bond rating might be downgraded even further.

According to Reuters, iHeartMedia is trying to kick the debt can further down the road by trying to pay off its maturing bonds by purchasing other ones while undergoing yet another corporate overhaul.

But this time, the company’s bondholders aren’t playing along. Per Reuters, a group that claims to represent more than half of the company’s lenders are refusing to cooperate with the restructuring plan, meaning that there is a very real possibility that iHeartMedia may have to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy in order to evade its creditors.

Should such a restructuring happen, there’s a very real chance that it could allow iHeartMedia to force Limbaugh, Hannity and its other top talents to renegotiate their contracts for a lower payment amount. Of course, that’s assuming that there would be any takers on what are likely to be bonds that would be sold at fire-sale prices.

Will Rush Limbaugh need a government bailout?

More Evidence of Flynn’s Treason and How He Was Paid By the Russians Through Turkey

The Chumph’s boy Flynn offered up testimony in exchange for not being prosecuted…He thought he could offer a deal and testify only on his own terms, and pick and choose what he disclosed.

The Government, and Congress shot down that ploy…Quickly.

Apparently Flynn didn’t know how much the Government had on his ass.

He is not looking at “11 Years in Twelveworth”…

He is looking at half the next century in a hole in the ground out west with no windows. If he dies before the sentence is up – They may just bury him in the Deseret in a cell to serve out the rest of his term.

He is gonna squeal! Or serve some really long hard time.

Ditto for the other Chumph co-conspirators.

And there isn’t a damn thing the Republican co-conspirators in Congress can do about it…Which is why Chaffetz jumped ship. At some point they are going to get around the Republican traitors who tried to derail the investigation.

In Russia, almost all roads in major business lead to the Putin Cartel. An international criminal Cartel which controls not only the organized crime, but oil, natural gas, and other industries.So Flynn ultimately was on Putin’s payroll, as was Carter Page, and Paul Manafort….And Putin’s Bitch.

Ain’t nobody giving a fired (Flynn had been tossed out of the Military) and disgraced US General $600,000…To do anything legal.

The only real question left is…Did they get Sessions too?

Flynn’s Turkish lobbying linked to Russia

The former national security adviser’s client had business dealings in Russia and worked with an executive in Russian oil companies on Turkish lobbying projects.

170424-Michael-Flynn-AP_17089851495505.jpgThe Turkish man who gave Mike Flynn a $600,000 lobbying deal just before President Donald Trump picked him to be national security adviser has business ties to Russia, including a 2009 aviation financing deal negotiated with Vladimir Putin, according to court records.

The man, Ekim Alptekin, has in recent years helped to coordinate Turkish lobbying in Washington with Dmitri “David” Zaikin, a Soviet-born former executive in Russian energy and mining companies who also has had dealings with Putin’s government, according to three people with direct knowledge of the activities.

This unusual arrangement, in which Alptekin and Zaikin have helped steer Turkish lobbying through various groups since at least 2015, raises questions about both the agenda of the two men and the source of the funds used to pay the lobbyists.

Although Turkey is a NATO ally, its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has grown increasingly authoritarian and friendly with Putin. And the hiring of Flynn by Alptekin came at a time when Flynn was working for Trump’s campaign and Putin’s government was under investigation for interfering with the U.S. election.

Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner, declined to comment. In a filing with the Justice Department, Flynn said he relied on assurances from Alptekin that he was not directly or indirectly funded by a foreign government. But shifting explanations and a web of business ties raise questions about the arrangement.

Flynn has offered evolving accounts of his lobbying work for Alptekin. In September, Flynn reported his client as a Dutch shell company owned by Alptekin. After being forced to leave the White House — reportedly because he lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations during the transition with the Russian ambassador — Flynn filed new paperwork in March acknowledging that his lobbying work “principally benefitted” the Turkish government.

The revelation of Russian business ties to the man who hired Flynn — which has not been previously reported — threatens to complicate the White House’s struggle to escape the shadow of the FBI investigation into whether members of the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian agents.

Flynn has been a focus for concerns about Russian ties to both the Trump campaign, for which he was a key adviser and surrogate, and the Trump administration, in which, as national security adviser, he had access to the most sensitive state secrets.

He also has a history of failing to disclose ties to Russia. His original White House ethics disclosure failed to include payments from Kremlin propaganda network RT and two other Russian companies. The RT payment was for a paid speech Flynn gave at a Moscow gala where he sat at the same table as Putin.

A White House spokesman declined to comment.

Zaikin declined to be interviewed but said in an email that he wasn’t involved in Flynn’s lobbying and doesn’t know Alptekin.

Alptekin, in an interview, said he hired Flynn with his own money and did not coordinate any lobbying for the Turkish government. He also denied knowing Zaikin.

But Alptekin acknowledged that he has attended events and met with leaders of the Turkish Heritage Organization, a Washington-based group of Turkish-Americans loyal to Erdogan. The organization was started when Zaikin asked a Washington-based international political consultant named John Moreira to help set it up, Moreira told POLITICO.

Asked why Zaikin — who is not Turkish and has no apparent ties to Turkey — would be organizing a Turkish heritage organization, Moreira said he thought Zaikin had Turkish friends and business associates.

“I don’t know who David was working for. He just asked me to do this,” Moreira said.

Moreira said he was paid to help manage the heritage organization but would not say by whom…

Sally Yates and the Throwdown on Chumph-Putin Collusion

Sally Yates was the acting US Attorney General after Loretta Lynch submitted her resignation as part of the administration turnover.

Jake Clapper is the former CIA Director.

Both were in positions with high enough security clearances to see all the actionable intelligence relative to collusion between the Chumph campaign and the Russians.

While both are prohibited from disclosing details – they are not prohibited from discussing their conclusions based on the evidence.

Yates in particular has a few bones to pick with the Chumph, based on her firing, and the continued coverup by Republicans in Congress.

This well could be the prelude to letting the whole cat out of the box in public on national TV.

Time to take Putin’s Bitch down for the traitor he is.
