Trump’s Twitter threat to destroy Iran’s cultural sites is a historic mistake : The Conversation


If the US makes good on the president’s threat, Iran’s heritage won’t be the only thing damaged. Washington’s reputation would also take a hit.

How Trump’s attempt to profit off the G7 summit just ‘backfired spectacularly’ – Alternet.org


In a truly brazen and stunningly corrupt moment in what was a broadly humiliating display for the United States all around, President Donald Trump made the suggestion at the G7 conference in France that the next conference should be held at his own resort in Miami.

Observers and experts quickly observed that this idea was likely illegal and potentially unconstitutional. Oops!

Donald Trump Continues To Show He’s Racist | HuffPost UK


Donald Trump has added to his long list of racist rhetoric and actions.

On July 14, the U.S. president tweeted a racist rant, clearly aimed at four Democratic lawmakers, all women of color ― Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) and Rashida Tlaib (Mich.) ― saying they should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

All four are American, and only Omar was born outside the U.S.

Trump then doubled down on his remarks the next day, telling reporters at an event at the White House that he believes the congresswomen “hate our country.”

Throughout Trump’s campaign and beyond, HuffPost has kept a running list of examples of Trump’s racism, dating back to the 1970s. He’s added much fodderto the list since he’s been in the White House. Here are just a few examples:

Trump lashes out at New York Times for Mueller reporting | TheHill


“The New York Times had no legitimate sources, which would be totally illegal, concerning the Mueller Report. In fact, they probably had no sources at all! They are a Fake News paper who have already been forced to apologize for their incorrect and very bad reporting on me!” Trump tweeted.

The Times report detailed concerns from unidentified investigators that Mueller’s findings are worse for Trump than Barr’s summary made them appear.

“False. Our reporters interviewed multiple government officials and others to gather the facts for the story,” The Times said in a statement responding to Trump’s tweet.

Barr’s letter on Mueller rpt, Trump stops new sanctions, Nominee hates Fed. Reserve, FEMA exposed victims


Like the UK who knows what is happening in the US.

Who is in control and for how long?

Trump appears to be still delivering policy by Twitter, is he not answerable to anyone, for he is only the President not a dictator, no matter how much he would wish to be the latter.

Is there an official Trump administration and if there is Trump himself aware of this.

Is the President aware of the policies being undertaken by his own administration and is the Administration aware of the views and directions of Trump.

Perhaps the latter is difficult to be aware of, as it appears you have to be glued to Twitter to find this information.

Is FEMA aware of the Laws of America or do they believe they are above the law and the Constitution , as it would appear the President of America feels he is.

I assume that the persons whose privacy has been violated by FEMA can take legal action against FEMA or would the President feel he can obstruct this.

Who needs ememies when Trump and his administration are around?

Barr’s letter on Mueller rpt

Many people are already jumping to conclusions about the Mueller report on Russian collusion during the 2016 election even though we don’t know anything about what it actually says.  While the public’s frustration is perfectly understandable, such conclusions are both premature and unwarranted at this point.  Until the report is released in full, final judgment should be withheld.  If it is not released, then Americans have every right to be outraged.  Government secrecy is not an option because it would be widely perceived as an official cover-up.

We must keep in mind the following:

  • That Mueller’s report should address whether or not 1) any Americans engaged in a criminal conspiracy with Russia to affect the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, 2) any Americans willingly or unwittingly assisted the Russian effort (i.e. collusion), and 3) whether or not the president and/or…

Trump: ‘Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly’ | TheHill


President Trump on Tuesday warned about the complexity of modern aircraft after the United Kingdom became the latest country to ground Boeing 737 Max 8 planes in the wake of the latest crash involving the aircraft.

“Airplanes are becoming far too complex to fly,” Trump tweeted. “Pilots are no longer needed, but rather computer scientists from MIT. I see it all the time in many products. Always seeking to go one unnecessary step further, when often old and simpler is far better.”

“Split second decisions are needed, and the complexity creates danger,” he continued. “All of this for great cost yet very little gain. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want Albert Einstein to be my pilot. I want great flying professionals that are allowed to easily and quickly take control of a plane!”

The United Kingdom’s Civil Aviation Authority on Tuesday morning banned the Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft from its airspace after two fatal crashes involving the plane. The U.K. joined China, Indonesia, Ethiopia, Australia and Singapore.

The aircraft was involved in an Ethiopian Airlines crash over the weekend that killed all 157 people on board. It was also the type of plane that crashed in Indonesia last October.

U.S. officials are assisting in the investigation into the Ethiopian Airlines crash, and Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) on Tuesday called for the planes to be grounded in U.S. airspace as well.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) said in a statement Monday that the planes are safe to fly.

Katie Price is right. Disabled people shouldn’t be forced off the internet by abuse | Gaby Hinsliff | Opinion | The Guardian


What sort of person repeatedly picks on a disabled child in the most vicious and cruel of terms?

The answer, of course, is the sort of people the model Katie Price had in mindwhen she started campaigning for online abuse to become a specific criminal offence. Price’s 15-year-old son Harvey – who is blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome – has been hideously mocked and taunted. His mother quickly gathered more than 220,000 supportive signatures for a petition demanding online abuse be treated as a hate crime, and now the parliamentary petitions committee has accepted her argument that the law isn’t fit for purpose – or to be precise a part of that argument. (Price’s petition referred not just to disability but to homophobia, racism and even body-shaming of women; the MPs were careful to single out disability alone, arguing in their report that they didn’t want to cut across the work of others on the rest.)
