And We Haven’ Even Got to The Trial Part Yet…The Chumph’s Approval Number Tank To a New Low

We haven’t even go to the part where one or more Chumph collaborators and fellow traitors has gone down yet!

I can’t think of any President who has been on the wrong side of so many issues, and who has created issues de jour to be on the wrong side of so consistently.

Trump’s Approval Rating Drops to Lowest Level Yet in New NBC News/WSJ Poll

 President Donald Trump’s job approval rating has declined to the lowest point of his presidency, and nearly half of voters want their vote in the 2018 midterms to be a message for more Democrats in Congress to check Trump and congressional Republicans, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

Thirty eight percent of Americans say they approve of Trump’s job performance — down five points since September — while 58 percent disapprove.

Trump’s previous low in approval in the national NBC/WSJ poll was 39 percent back in May.

Trump Job Approval, Oct. 2017

“This is his worst showing of his young presidency so far,” said Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff and his team at Public Opinion Strategies.

The drop for Trump has come from independents (who shifted from 41 percent approval in September to 34 percent now), whites (who went from 51 percent to 47 percent) and whites without a college degree (from 58 percent to 51 percent).

“Are we starting to see the fraying of the Trump base … after this week of [Republican] infighting?” Yang asked.

Trump’s job approval rating of 38 percent is the lowest in modern times for a president at this stage of his presidency. The NBC/WSJ poll had George W. Bush at 88 percent, Barack Obama at 51 percent and Bill Clinton at 47 percent in the fall of their first year as president.

In this new survey, Trump also has seen a decline in his personal rating, with 36 percent viewing him positively and 54 percent negatively.

Back in September — when the political headlines were focused more on the president’s handling of the hurricanes that hit Texas and Florida, as well as Trump’s spending deal with congressional Democrats — his score was 39 percent positive, 49 percent negative.

But this current poll, conducted October 23-26, comes on the heels of a tumultuous two weeks in American politics, which included:

  • Trump charging that his predecessors didn’t make calls to the families of fallen U.S. soldiers;
  • Trump upsetting the family and friends of Sgt. La David T. Johnson, who was killed in Niger, by allegedly telling them that Johnson “must’ve known what he signed up for”;
  • Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., criticizing their party’s own president.

Additionally, the NBC/WSJ poll measures some of Trump’s recent actions over the past couple of months. The most popular: By a 48 percent to 27 percent margin, Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

And by a 42 percent-to-37 percent margin, they give a thumbs-up to the president’s handling of the economy.

But Trump is underwater on almost every other issue. Just 35 percent approve of his handling of his role as commander in chief; 34 percent approve of his handling of North Korea; 33 percent approve of his handling of the mass shooting in Las Vegas; and 30 percent approve of Trump’s handling of NFL players protesting during the National Anthem.

At the bottom: 29 percent agree with his handling of the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico; 27 percent approve of his handling of health care; and 24 percent approve of his handling of the Iran nuclear deal…

And there is no bottom in sight!

Feds Drop the Hammer on Drumph Militia – Arrest Campaign Co-Chair for Conspiracy

Apparently the DOJ has had enough of the right wing armed Militia extremists, and finally has begun to hold them accountable for their domestic terrorism. The Drumph is about to find at least a segment of his racist popular support …In jail. They aren’t being prosecuted because they are Trump supporters -buy rather the fact that they have committed crimes. It has been noted here, as well in a lot of other places the difference in handling these folks and a black or minority person who would point a gun at a federal or local police officer.

I would imagine that a lot of this is being driven by the violent reactions of Trump supporters against those who do not toe their line, or protesters –  mirroring that of Hitlers Brown Shirts during his rise to power. It was common for Hitler’s supporters to violently attack. beat, and even kill anyone they felt opposed them or belonged to another party.

Long past time to reign that shidt in.

Trump campaign co-chair arrested for conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States

Jerry Delemus, the husband of a New Hampshire Republican lawmaker and co-chair of the state’s “Veterans for Trump” coalition, was arrested Thursday for his role in the armed standoff nearly two years ago at the Bundy ranch.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Delemus on nine federal charges — including conspiracy to commit an offense against the United States, threatening a federal law enforcement officer, obstruction of justice, attempting to impede or injure a federal law enforcement officer and several firearms charges, reported Portsmouth Patch.

The Tea Party activist and outspoken Donald Trump supporter traveled cross-country in 2014 to take part in the armed standoff between Bureau of Land Management agents and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his militia supporters in a dispute over unpaid grazing fees.

He was apparently the security team member who asked Jerad and Amanda Miller toleave the Bundy ranch just weeks before they gunned down two Las Vegas police officers.

Delemus also traveled to Oregon in January to take part in the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Preserve.

His wife, state Rep. Susan Delemus (R-Rochester) announced the arrest to the former chairman of New Hampshire’s Republican Party — who issued a call on Facebook for “all NH patriots to come together ASAP” to ”protest this tyranny in the most visible way possible.”

“She said that the FBI just rolled up with lots of vehicles and Agents who were in tactical gear,” posted Jack Kimball, the former GOP chair. ”They forced their way into Jerry Delemus and Sue’s condo with weapons drawn and arrested Jerry and took him away.”

Delemus and his wife have been quoted multiple times by local and national media about their support for Trump.

Susan Delemus gained a measure of fame after she declared every politician but Trump was lying to her through the television.

“We’ve got people in positions of power who I know for a fact are liars. Liars!” Delemus said. “I watch the TV — My president comes on the TV and he lies to me! I know he’s lying. He lies all the time.”

She also made news four years ago, when she angrily confronted state officials in an attempt to keep Obama off the ballot in New Hampshire, causing the assistant secretary of state to fear for his safety.

Most recently, Susan Delemus made news for siding with Trump in his feud with Pope Francis.

“The Pope is the anti-Christ,” Susan Delemus posted on her own Facebook page. “Do your research.”

Jerry DeLemus switched over in July from Sen. Ted Cruz’s leadership team in New Hampshire, and instead backed Trump because he’s an “anti-politician.”

The failed candidate for “constitutional candidate” also organized the infamous rally where Trump failed to correct a man who called Obama a Muslim.

Civil War…Part Deux?

Glad someone else sees this…

Apocalyptic GOP Is Dragging Us Into a Civil War

Had a friend send me this article by former Republican staffer Mike Lofgren under the subject line, “Informative reading for tonight’s Republican showcase.” I’m probably late in seeing it, but Lofgren’s piece raises fascinating and terrifying questions about the future of our political system and the increasing possibility that we are headed toward something like a civil war, or a constitutional crisis.

Lofgren, in describing the reasons for his defection from the Republican party, describes a Republican camp that increasingly acts not like a traditional peacetime political organization, but more like an apocalyptic cult or one of the authoritarian movements from early 20th century European history.

In particular, the insane decision to turn the once-routine procedure of raising the debt ceiling (Lofgren notes it was done 87 times since WWII) into a political crisis revealed that the GOP party mainstream had sunk to the level of terrorism – holding our economic system hostage in exchange for political concessions.  Read the rest of this entry »

Obama – “Fox News Destructive to America”

The newly combative President Obama is pulling no punches…

At Last!

Faux News is nothing more than a propaganda outlet for the far right. It has fully supported, and actively promoted the formation and continuance of the Tea Party. It has given platform to right-wing whack jobs, and actively promoted outright lies and distortions.

If Obama had anyone on his staff with cajones larger than pinheads… The FCC would have either shut down, or fined Faux into compliance a long time ago.

Obama: Fox News is ‘destructive’ to America

President Obama is pulling no punches when it comes to Fox News, declaring the cable news outlet to be “destructive to [America’s] long-term growth.”

In a more than 8,000-word interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Obama compared the cable news channel to papers owned by William Randolph Hearst at the turn of the 20th century that unabashedly pushed the media titan’s own political views.

“You had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition – it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view,” Obama told the magazine.

Officials in the Obama White House have long made Fox News a punchingbag, launching a full blown offensive last year when aides declared the network to be “opinion journalism masquerading as news.” Then-White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said the cable outlet “operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican Party,” and top aide Valerie Jarret called Fox “clearly biased.”

But the new comments from Obama constitute the president’s most direct attack yet on the network owned by business mogul Rupert Murdoch.

Fox News pushes “a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world,” Obama said.

“But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.”

Faux News Owned by “Radical Muslim”!

Jon Stewart points out that Faux News Corporation is owned by the very same “Radical Muslim” guy who is funding the “Ground Zero” Mosque…

And he’s not a “Radical Muslim funding terrorist activities around the world”…

Unless you consider Faux News a “Terrorist Organization”.
