    World Kushner Following Trump's Orders On Secret Link With Russia, Ex-CIA Official Suggests Investigations into Russian interference in the American presidential election aren’t only getting close to Donald Trump, they’ve begun to stir up concerns about the chain of command. Reports that top White House adviser Jared Kushner attempted to establish a secret communication link with Russia has an ex-CIA official wondering if he was acting on his or following orders— and if so, whose orders. “I’m going to presume he did this at the behest of the president-elect of the United States,” former CIA official Phillip Mudd said on CNN Monday. Mudd was referring to last week’s Washington Post report that Kushner met in December with the Russian ambassador to the U.S. to discuss establishing a secret communication channel to the Kremlin that could not be monitored by U.S. intelligence — using Russian facilities. The link was not established, The Post reported. “There’s a judgment by Jared Kushner and the president’s team that says, ‘I trust the Russians more than I trust the Americans. I’m going to go talk to the Russian embassy because I don’t trust American channels,’” Mudd said on CNN’s “The Situation Room.” CNN political analyst Chris Cillizza also said he doesn’t believe Kushner was “lone-wolfing” it at the time, but was following orders from his father-in-law or Michael Flynn, who would later be booted as Trump’s national security advisor over his ties to Russia. “I find it hard to believe ... that he was lone wolfing it on this — that he developed a plan entirely independent of Donald Trump or Mike Flynn or anybody else,” Cillizza said. “Yes, he is a member of the family, he is a trusted adviser. But he’s not someone who believes he should just go and run channels, particularly at that point, particularly in the transition period.” Without directly addressing the Post report, Trump defended Kushner in a statement to The New York Times published Sunday, saying he has “total confidence in him.” Kushner, Trump added, is “respected by virtually everyone” and “is a very good person.” After he returned from Europe, the president also disparaged White House leaks and “fake news” from the media in a series of tweets, apparently in response to a number of damaging news stories last week, including the Kushner report. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, has called for a review of Kushner’s security clearance. Kushner emerged last week as a person of interest in the FBI probe into Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election and possible links to the Trump campaign.

    98 percent of Republican military veterans approve of Trump: Poll By Jennifer Harper - The Washington Times - Monday, May 29, 2017 President Trump has some unwavering support from a very unique demographic: Republican military veterans. An extensive new Pew Research Center reveals that 98 percent of these GOP vets approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing. He has some fans across the greater population of vets as well. The poll also found that 54 percent of them also approve of the president. Another 47 percent of independent vets and 10 percent of Democratic vets approve of the president. “U.S. veterans, who broadly supported Donald Trump in the 2016 election, have remained positive about the job he is doing as president,” wrote Shiva Maniam, and analyst for the pollster. “In April, 54 percent of those who have served in the military approved of his job performance. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/may/29/98-percent-of-republican-military-veterans-approve/

    Remember the Gold Star Family Guy? Remember this guy? Khizr Kahn and his wife - the "Gold Star" family, who caused such a commotion denouncing Trump for his stand against Muslim immigration at the DNC Convention? Now we learn that not only did the Dems pay actors to fill up seats at their convention, but they paid Khan $25,000 to make that speech. (Which was, by the way, not written by him, but two DNC staffers). Remember the copy of Constitution he held up? (Bought by a staffer two hours before speech). And that's just the tip of the iceberg! FIVE Gold Star families turned down the DNC's request to speak at the convention. Khan's law firm is in debt $1.7 million, and owes back taxes of over $850,000 plus penalties. (Which the IRS has put on hold since his convention speech). In addition, the DNC paid him a bonus of $175,000 for his "media effort." AND ... CNN paid him over $100,000 for his interviews. *NOW who's dishonoring his son's memory? Talk about a soulless bastard!!*

    THIS IS DONALDOF TRUMPLER CRIMINAL JUSTICE WORLD Watch as Portland white supremacist threatens police with knife but does not get shot A video has captured the dramatic moment a white supremacist threatened police with a knife after he used the weapon to slash the throats of two men on a train, on Friday in Portland, Oregon. Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, was reportedly yelling anti-Islam slurs at two young women – one in a hijab – when several men confronted the convicted felon. He then pulled out the knife and slit the throats of two men, identified as Army veteran Ricky John Best, 54, and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai Mache, before stabbing but not seriously injuring a third, Micah Fletcher. Moments after the gruesome double murder, by-standers captured the scene as Oregon's Portland Police Department tried to detain Christian. As the suspect was closed in on by several squad cars, with officers pointing pistols at him behind car doors, Christian could be seen waving the knife within feet of officers' faces while yelling a tirade of abuse. "Well, shoot me then. Shoot me then. F**k you. You ain't shit," he could be heard saying. However, police did not react and Christian was arrested moments later. At Multnomah County Detention Center, he was charged with two counts of aggravated murder, one of attempted murder, possession of a restricted weapon and intimidation in the second degree, a hate crime offence. After his arrest, it emerged that Christian was a strident supporter of the "alt-right" and openly shared neo-Nazi and antisemitic material on social media. In one video, he can be seen making the Nazi salute while wearing the American flag draped on his back, while in one Facebook post, he wrote: "If Trump is Hitler, I'm joining his SS. Jihadi Muslims are going to the ovens." Following Christian's arrest, a candlelight vigil was later held outside the Hollywood Transit Center, where the attack happened, in which several speakers praised the courage of the men who stood up to the racism. A fundraising page for the families of the victims, under the banner of Muslims Unite for Portland Heroes, has since raised over $175,000 (£136,600). DONALDOF....BE PROUD OF YOURSELF....YOU ARE CREATING ANOTHER NAZI THING HERE IN AMERICA......

    With a President Trump, an emphasis on 'law and order' "It remains to be seen what policies he chooses to support, but the rhetoric has been fairly unhelpful,'' said Inimai Chettiar, Justice Program director at the non-partisan Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law. Chettiar said that Trump has not articulated a criminal justice plan, other than dark references during the campaign to rampant violent crime in U.S. inner cities, where he has called for a return of racially charged stop-and-frisk practices. The tactic, which allows police to detain and search people on the basis of reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, was found to be unconstitutional as applied in New York City. PROMISES AND PROMISES.... AND Trump Had Over 20 Chances To Address The Portland Attack On Twitter. He Didn't. Donald Trump has been tweeting regularly throughout the weekend, but not once has he mentioned the fatal stabbing in Portland, Oregon, that left two men dead after they confronted a man spewing hatred to two Muslim girls. On Friday, Ricky John Best and Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche were stabbed to death while traveling on one of Portland’s MAX trains. They both stood up to confront a man verbally attacking two girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab. Police say Jeremy Joseph Christian, 35, who has ties to white supremacist groups, targeted the girls for “religiously and racially motivated reasons.” When confronted by Best, Namkai-Meche and a third man, 21-year-old Micah David-Cole Fletcher, Christian violently attacked them with a knife. Fletcher survived the stabbing but remains in the hospital with serious injuries. Since the fatal attack made national news on Saturday, Trump has sent almost two dozen tweets. Not one of those messages mention Portland, the two deceased men being hailed as “heroes,” or a condemnation of the attacker’s actions that are being investigated by police as a hate crime. YOU KNOW WHY HE DIDN'T EVEN MAKE THE ATTEMPT TO ADDRESS THE ATTACK? BECAUSE THE ATTACKER IS A WHITE SUPREMACIST, WHICH DONALDOF IS WELL ALIGNED WITH, AND THE TWO BRAVE MEN WHO DIED IN THE INCIDENT WERE DEFENDING A MUSLIM WOMAN !!!! THAT RIGHT THERE IS A ENOUGH PROOF OF DONALDOF RACIST BACKGROUND ALONG WITH HIS TWISTED AND DISCRIMINATING BELIEFS. BUT IF IT WAS THE OTHER WAY AROUND, LET'S SAY, TWO MUSLIMS ATTACKED A WHITE MAN IN PORTLAND, HE WOULD BE TWEETING HIS SORRY REAR END TO NO END ABOUT HOW HEINOUS THE CRIME WAS. DON'T TAKE IT IN THE WRONG WAY, A SENSELESS CRIME IN OUR COUNTRY THAT RESULTS IN THE LOSS OF LIFE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. BUT IN CIRCUMSTANCES LIKE THE THIS, THE PUPPET SHOULD AT LEAST MAKE AN EFFORT TO HAIL THE VALIANT AND HEROIC DEEDS IN WHICH TWO MEN GAVE THEIR LIVES AND THESE MEN GAVE THEIR LIVES AFFIRMING THEIR BELIEFS AND THEIR STRONG CONVICTIONS THAT REGARDLESS WHERE YOU FROM AND WHO YOU PRAY TO, OR WHAT YOU WEAR ON YOUR HEAD, THAT BE A HABIB OR A CAP WITH ALUMINUM FOIL, YOU ARE A HUMAN BEING, YOU ARE PERSON AND NOT AN OBJECT. AND THOSE ARE BELIEFS DONALDOF DEEPLY DESPISES AND HATE. THESE TWO MEN DIED AND DONALDOF DIDN'T EVEN ACKNOWLEDGE. DONALDOF...GOOD FOR YOU. IT SHOWS CLEARLY WHAT ARE YOU MADE OF; CRAP.

    On Russia-Kushner Backchannel, Trump's H.R. McMaster And John Kelly Show Lack Of Judgment Anders Corr , Contributor I cover international politics, security and political risk. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own. Tweet This Kushner's backchannel proposal reportedly surprised Ambassador Kislyak. But Kelly said such backchannel communication “doesn’t bother me” and “is a good thing.” McMaster said he was “not concerned.” These statements show loyalty to the boss’ son-in-law, rather than loyalty to the American people. That is a profound failure in judgment. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly publicly supported Jared Kushner over the past two days in relation to Kushner’s reported pretransition backchannel discussions with a Russian Ambassador, and another meeting with a Russian banker close to Putin. Trump son-in-law and foreign policy adviser Kushner allegedly proposed to use Russian diplomatic facilities for communications with Russia, ostensibly to ensure secrecy. Kushner made his unusual proposal to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, in a meeting attended by former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn at Trump Tower on December 1 or 2. Kushner's backchannel proposal reportedly surprised Ambassador Kislyak. But Kelly said such backchannel communication “doesn’t bother me” and “is a good thing.” McMaster said he was “not concerned.” These statements show loyalty to the boss’ son-in-law, rather than loyalty to the American people. That is a profound failure in judgment. While Kelly and McMaster are unconcerned, the public, and a multitude of U.S. investigators, are increasingly attentive. The FBI now considers the Kushner-Kislyak discussions, and another discussion Kushner had with a Russian banker to whom Putin reportedly assigns sensitive financial transactions, to be of investigative interest. Given that by definition a backchannel is outside the regular routes of government-to-government communication, it could be intended for illegal communications. Were those communications meant to be legal, why not hold them on secure channels from the State Department, with its full support, rather than from a Russian diplomatic outpost? Kushner and the Trump team have in general shown a fatal disregard for decades of relevant intelligence and analysis from the State Department and intelligence agencies in Washington, and in this case it shows. The U.S. Government, with the entirety of its institutional knowledge, is supposed to be the single point of political contact with outside governments, and while it is common for high-level advisors of incoming presidential teams to converse with foreign leaders and high level officials, Kushner should not be communicating secretly with Russian officials before the transition except through established government channels. There is absolutely no excuse for Kushner to have such secret conversations with a Putin crony of a sanctioned Russian bank. That will be very hard to explain to the FBI. It was ludicrous from the start for Trump to put his real-estate investor son-in-law in charge of foreign policy. He is in way over his head. One senior intelligence official told the Washington Post that Kushner’s proposal to communicate secretly from a Russian diplomatic outpost was either “extremely naive or absolutely crazy.” That McMaster and Kelly have now defended or deflected criticism of the pretransition backchannel communications to Russia puts their judgment into question. Indeed, McMaster is publicly losing political allies for doing so. As author Thomas Ricks said with respect to McMasters, don’t confuse “protecting the President with protecting the country.” That Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Secretary of Defense “Mad Dog” Mattis have not made such statements, is to their credit. They are generally making the right moves in Washington, and abroad. Please follow me on Twitter @anderscorr, or contact me at corr@canalyt.com.

It later emerged that he too had met Mr Kislyak - at a private meeting in September and as part of a group of ambassadors in July last year. The Alabama senator was one of the most prominent players in Mr Trump's bid to take the White House. But he says his meetings with Mr Kislyak were related to his role as a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and had nothing to do with the election campaign. The Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said he lied under oath and should resign. In response, Mr Sessions recused himself from the FBI investigation into the Russian hacking claims, an investigation he is overseeing. Mr Trump has made no secret of his regard for Mr Putin and his desire to establish closer ties with Russia. But the more pressing question, and one which the president just can't seem to shake, is just how close those ties already go. FBI investigation confirmed... and Comey fired Two months into the Trump presidency, Mr Comey confirmed at a rare open hearing of the House Intelligence Committee that the agency was investigating alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. It is an "ongoing" investigation that began in July 2016, he said. The probe includes examining possible links between Mr Trump's campaign and the Russian government. Mr Comey said the FBI would look into any collusion and assess whether any crimes were committed. But he added the inquiry was "very complex" and he could not give a timetable on its completion, nor which individuals in the Trump campaign might be subject to it. "We will follow the facts wherever they lead," he said. The White House initially said that Mr Comey had been fired over his handling of the inquiry into Hillary Clinton's emails. But Mr Trump later said "this Russia thing with Trump" was a factor in his decision. Democrats are calling for Congress to appoint a special prosecutor to resume the investigation. Trump: 'I have the absolute right' to share with Russia On 15 May the Washington Post reported that Mr Trump had confided top secret intelligence information to the Russian foreign minister and the Russian ambassador to Washington. The intelligence about possible Islamic State group terror plots was said to have been divulged during a meeting in the Oval Office, which was documented by Russian state media after the White House barred US media outlets. The president revealed details that could lead to the exposure of a source of information inside Syria, officials told the Washington Post. After White House officials denied that Mr Trump had shared intelligence, Mr Trump took to Twitter to explain why " wanted to share with Russia". Mr Trump's move is not illegal, as the US president has the authority to declassify information, but experts say it could qualify as negligence. The alleged action drew strong criticism from Democrats and a call for an explanation from his own Republican party. Critics have noted Mr Trump's own campaign criticism of the way Hillary Clinton handled sensitive material during her time in government.

    That is right...this is the true origin.... Russia: The scandal Trump can't shake Throughout the confusion of Donald Trump's campaign and the chaotic events of his early days in the White House, one controversy has clung to the Trump train like glue: Russia. The accusation that Mr Trump shared highly-sensitive "codeword" material with the Russian ambassador and foreign minister during a meeting in the Oval Office has sent shockwaves throughout Washington, but is only the latest bombshell. The sudden departure of Michael Flynn from his role as national security adviser in February and the revelations of Attorney General Jeff Sessions's meetings with Russia's ambassador Sergei Kislyak are also among a string of controversies tying the administration to apparent Russian interests. In March, then-FBI director James Comey also confirmed for the first time that the bureau was investigating potential links between Mr Trump's campaign aides and the Russian government as part of a broader probe into Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 election. Mr Comey himself was sacked by President Trump on 9 May - in a move that shocked Washington, and fuelled claims the dismissal may have been part of a cover up. Early warning signs It was back in May 2016 that the first reports emerged of hackers targeting the Democratic Party. Over the next two months, the reports suggested US intelligence agencies had traced the breaches back to Russian hackers. In July, on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, Wikileaks published 20,000 internal emails stolen by the hackers. US intelligence officials said they believed with "high confidence" that Russia was behind the operation, but the Trump campaign publicly refused to accept the findings. Instead, at a press conference, Mr Trump caused outrage by inviting Russian hackers to target Hillary Clinton's controversial personal email server, saying: "Russia, if you're listening, I hope you're able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing". The first casualty About the same time the hacking scandal was beginning to unfold, Mr Trump's then campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was accused of accepting millions of dollars in cash for representing Russian interests in Ukraine and US, including dealings with an oligarch with close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin. While Mr Manafort was running the campaign, the Republican Party changed the language in its manifesto regarding the conflict in Ukraine, removing anti-Russian sentiment, allegedly at the behest of two Trump campaign representatives. Mr Manafort, who quit as Mr Trump's campaign chairman last August, is being investigated by the FBI and also reportedly by New York officials. Like Mr Flynn, Mr Manafort, a political operative with more than 40 years' experience, was supposed to marshal some of the chaos and controversy around Mr Trump, but ended up falling prey to it. Subsequently, further allegations have been made in Ukraine about secret funds said to have been paid to Mr Manafort, and it has also been claimed that he secretly worked for a Russian billionaire to assist President Vladimir Putin's political ends. Mr Manafort has denied both allegations. At odds with the intelligence In October, the US intelligence community released a unanimous statement formally accusing Russia of being behind the hacking of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Mr Trump continued to argue against the finding, claiming in a presidential debate that it "could be Russia, but it could also be China, it could also be lots of other people. It also could be somebody sitting on their bed that weighs 400 pounds". The same day that the intelligence agencies released their findings, the explosive "Access Hollywood" recording emerged of Mr Trump's obscene remarks about women in 2005. An hour later, Wikileaks began dumping thousands more leaked Clinton emails. Mr Trump continued to refuse to acknowledge the consensus that Russia was behind the hack. 'I always knew Putin was smart!' In December, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security published a report of the US intelligence findings linking Russia to the hack. In response, President Barack Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats and levied new sanctions on Russia. The world awaited Mr Putin's response but he chose not retaliate. Mr Trump, by then the president-elect, sided with the Russian president, tweeting: "Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!" Mr Putin's decision not to respond in kind struck many as a canny PR move, but reportedly set off suspicions among US intelligence officials that Russia was confident the sanctions would not last. The same month, Mr Trump picked Rex Tillerson as his nominee for secretary of state, arguably the most important job in the cabinet. The biggest hurdle for Mr Tillerson's confirmation? Close ties to Mr Putin. As CEO of the ExxonMobil oil company, Mr Tillerson cultivated a close personal relationship with the Russian leader, leading many to speculate on whether he was fit to serve as America's most senior foreign diplomat. Mr Tillerson was sworn in as secretary of state on 2 February. The 'compromising claims' dossier In January, Buzzfeed published a dossier compiled by Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence official and Russia expert, which alleged that Moscow had compromising material on the then-president-elect, making him liable to blackmail. Among the various memos in the dossier was an allegation that Mr Trump had been recorded by Russian security services consorting with prostitutes at a Moscow hotel. Mr Trump dismissed the claims as fake news. CNN revealed that President Obama and President-elect Trump had been briefed on the existence of the dossier by intelligence officials, and Buzzfeed went one further, publishing the entire thing. The document went off like a hand grenade tossed into the already febrile political scene and generated a backlash against Buzzfeed for publishing what were essentially unverified claims. The evidence against Flynn... In February, the most concrete and damaging Russia scandal finally surfaced, months after suspicions were raised among intelligence officials. US media reported that Mr Flynn had discussed the potential lifting of Mr Obama's Russia sanctions with the Russian ambassador, Sergei Kislyak, before Mr Trump took the reins of government. It is illegal for private citizens to conduct US diplomacy. He resigned as Mr Trump's national security adviser after 23 days on the job, saying he had "inadvertently briefed the vice-president-elect and others with incomplete information regarding my phone calls with the Russian ambassador" late last year. Mr Flynn, who had appeared regularly on Russian propaganda channel RT, once attended dinner with Mr Putin in Moscow. Since leaving the White House, the Pentagon has launched an investigation into whether he failed to disclose payments from Russian and Turkish lobbyists that he was given for speeches and consulting work. In March, he registered with the US government as a "foreign agent" due to his work for the Turkish government.

    If an incoherent shitbird can actually earn a check, this is the likely origin: I do not understand how living in a country with its democracy established over 200 years ago, and now, for the first time in history, suddenly we have one of our former presidents set up a group called "Organizing for Action" - (OFA). OFA - 30,000 strong working to disrupt everything that our current president is trying to do. This goes against our Democracy, it is an operation that will destroy our way of governing. It goes against our Constitution, our laws, and the processes established over 200 years ago. If this is allowed to proceed then we will be living in chaos very much like third world countries are run. What good is it to have an established government if it is not going to be respected and allowed to follow our laws? If this does not scare you, then we are in worse trouble than you know. It is explained below. Do your part: read it and at least pass this on so others will know what we are up against. We are losing our country and we are so compliant. We are becoming a "PERFECT TARGET" for our enemy! Article from the New York Post - If you had an army some 30,000 strong and a court system stacked over the decades with judges who would allow you to break the laws, how much damage could you do to a country? We are about to find out in America! The ex-president said he was going to stay involved through community organizing and speak out on the issues and that appears to be one post-administration promise he intends to keep. He has moved many of his administration's top dogs over to an organization called Organizing for Action (OFA). OFA is behind the strategic and tactical implementation of the resistance we are seeing across America, and politically active courts are providing the leverage for this revolution. OFA is dedicated to organizing communities for "progressive" change. Issues are gun control, socialist healthcare, abortion, sexual equality, climate change, and of course, immigration reform. OFA members were propped up by the ex-president's message from the shadows: "Organizing is the building block of everything great we've accomplished. Organizers around the country are fighting for change in their communities - and OFA is one of the groups on the front lines. Commit to this work in 2016 and beyond." OFA's website says it obtained its "digital" assets from the ex-president's re-election effort and that he inspired the movement. In short, it's the shadow government organization aimed at resisting and tearing down the Constitutional Republic - AMERICA Paul Sperry, writing for the New York Post, says OFA will fight President Donald Trump at every turn of his presidency and the ex-president "will command them from a bunker less than two miles from the White House." Sperry writes that the ex-president is setting up a shadow government to sabotage the incoming administration through a network of non-profits led by OFA, which is growing its war chest (more than $40 million) and has some 250 offices nationwide. OFA IRS filings, according to Sperry, indicate OFA has 32,525 volunteers nationwide. The ex-president and his wife will oversee the operation from their home/ office near the White House. Think about how this works - for example: Trump issues an immigration executive order; OFA signals for protests and statements from pro-immigrant groups; ACLU lawyers file lawsuits in jurisdictions where activist judges obstruct the laws; volunteers are called to protest at airports and Congressional town hall meetings; the leftist media springs to action; the twitter sphere lights up with social media; violence follows - all emanating from the ex-president's signal that he is heartened by the protests. If Barack Obama did not do enough to destroy this country in the 8 years he was in office, it appears his future plans are to destroy the foundation on which this country has operated on for the last 241 years.

    Politics New Trump Budget Completely Disappears In An Amazing Just 3 Days As of now, the only place you may find the Trump 2018 budget may be on a container of milk asking you to call the authorities if you've seen it. With the news about the possible scandals likely to intensify and the White House apparently planning to announce major staff changes, last week may well be the last time anyone hears about the Trump 2018 budget again. As of now, the only place you may find the Trump 2018 budget may be on a container of milk asking you to call the authorities if you've seen it. As predicted in this post, the Trump 2018 budget released last Tuesday completely disappeared from view before the start of the Memorial Day weekend just three days later. By Wednesday, that is, the day after the Trump budget was unveiled, it was clear that there was little Republican (and even less Democratic) enthusiasm for what the president had proposed. The next day, the only real budget-related news was that Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin -- the two cabinet members with the Trump administration's primary fiscal policy responsibilities -- had dramatically different views about if and how tax reform would be paid for. By Friday, just a mere three days after it was released, the White House had nothing new to say about its budget and wasn't even bothering to respond to the blistering criticism it was receiving. On Saturday, four days after it was announced, the White House released the president's first statement on his budget...a 2 minute and 41 second video that used the same economic generalizations Trump used during his campaign and talked about what would be released rather than what his administration had already announced earlier in the week. And on the first Sunday after it was was released, when the Trump budget should have been the hot topic of political conversation, no member of the Trump cabinet with economic responsibilities -- not the OMB director, Treasury secretary or director of the National Economic Council (the chair of the Council of Economic Advisors is not yet on the job because he hasn't been confirmed), all of whom normally would be expected to flack the president's proposals -- was scheduled to appear on any of the Sunday talk shows. There were a variety of reasons for this. First, as I noted last week, the Trump administration planned the worst rollout of a president's budget in decades. Other than the final budget released by a lame duck just as he was about to leave office, I can't recall a less well-planned and more ineffective introduction of a president's budget. This is especially true of a president's first budget, the one used to create substantial momentum toward achieving the promised agenda. Second, as if the poorly-planned introduction wasn't enough, the scandals surrounding the Trump administration intensified last week and overwhelmed every substantive issue. The budget simply didn't have a chance to compete with all that highly charged and politically voyeuristic news. Third, the president stepped on his own budget story with an overseas trip that initially produced positive and then overwhelmingly negative news. As noted above, while he was traveling Trump didn't even release a written statement about his own budget. Fourth, on Wednesday and Thursday, the special congressional election in Montana overwhelmed everything coming from Washington. The public Mulvaney-Mnuchin dispute, which had it happened in previous years would have been characterized as the gang that couldn't shoot straight, got relatively little attention. Fifth, the Trump budget was quickly and very poorly received by the House and Senate and quickly rejected by senior Republicans. It was clear from when it was released that this was nothing more than a check-the-box moment for the Trump White House that didn't change the coming taxing, spending and debt ceiling debate at all. And this week promises to be more of the same. With the news about the possible scandals likely to intensify and the White House apparently planning to announce major staff changes, last week may well be the last time anyone hears about the Trump 2018 budget again.

    YOU...MAKE...ME...LAUGH...HARD !!!! Dude..don't you realize by now how you react to any little thing that portrays your boyfriend in a negative light?.... You can say whatever the hell you want, but the fact is that you get triggered so easy that is actually... incredibly laughable and funny !!! I never hide that I dislike your boyfriend that much. I said multiple times and I say it again. I dislike Donaldof Trumpler. Do you have a problem with that?....because I don't. You say I hate Donaldof?...No. I don't hate anyone. I know hatred firsthand and I've seen the results of hatred in a country that is full of raw, unadulterated hatred. You haven't and most likely you never will.. The only hatred you know is what you see from the comfy Lazy-Boy in your house while you watch the news in your big TV. Matter fact, you haven't experience hatred to even begin to understand what hatred really is. Do you? Where were my opinions from the prior administration? I don't have one as negative as I have of your boyfriend Donaldof, I was busy doing the job you would never in your unexceptional and uninspiring life could even dream to do. That I believe Obama did a good job?.... probably.... or.... probably not. One thing for sure, he wasn't as racist and bigot as your boyfriend. Back then, the Commander in Chief was the Commander in Chief and you couldn't opinion about it. Now I am a retired officer and I have a voice...I will voice my opinion...I am voicing my opinion, right here and right now. So dude...keep commenting like that.... you are making my day, week and month !!!....

PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine's youngest son was among eight people charged for allegedly disrupting a March rally in support of President Donald Trump. Linwood "Woody" Kaine, of Minneapolis, was charged Friday with one gross misdemeanor count of obstructing the legal process and misdemeanor counts of fleeing on foot and concealing his identity in public. Seven other people were also charged, including two with felonies. A criminal complaint says Kaine and others changed into black clothing during the rally and entered the Capitol. One group member threw a smoke bomb inside. The complaint says the 24-year-old Kaine was among those who ran away, and he initially resisted arrest. Kaine doesn't have a listed number and it's not immediately clear if he has an attorney. Tim Kaine was Hillary Clinton's running mate.
