It all finally caught up to Donald Trump ~ Trump’s post-presidency: Avoid indictment and bankruptcy

Trump, who built a brand on projecting indestructibility, has been branded as something he despises most: a loser.

Trump, 74, was born into a wealthy family, built a global business, with a few bankruptcies along the way, became a reality TV star and then won the presidency with no political experience. It allowed the megalomaniac businessman to craft his own legacy: Success against all odds.

But now the FBI and authorities are examining whether Trump illegally and inappropriately instigated the Capitol riot of January 6; Investigators are examining whether Trump illegally, inappropriately and improperly inflated assets, evaded taxes and paid off women alleging affairs in violation of campaign finance laws; Lawsuits filed by women against Trump accusing him of harassing and assaulting them are still pending in courts; Lenders are looking for hundreds of millions of dollars in loans to be repaid; The New York Attorney General’s Office is investigating whether Trump and his company misreported assets on financial statements used to seek loans, tax breaks and economic benefits; The Manhattan district attorney is still probing Trump’s payoffs to two women to keep them quiet during the 2016 campaign about extramarital affairs; The Manhattan district attorney may also be broader than the hush money payments, possibly including a probe of tax crimes and bank and insurance fraud.

Trump, who spent decades teasing a White House bid before finally running in 2016, plowed through a first term marred by an impeachment trial, omnipresent investigations, back-biting leaks, tell-all memoirs from ex-staffers, prominent resignations and firings and crisis after crisis of his own making. While in the White House, given a longstanding Justice Department precedent not to indict a sitting president, Trump has been largely protected from facing criminal charges. But once he leaves office, he will have to grapple with a series of investigations that might directly implicate him. And, if he is to lose the legal immunity of the presidency Trump may well be facing jail time.

Trump has, again and again, evaded, side-stepped and shrugged off legal, financial and personal woes. He has survived an impeachment trial, numerous accusations of sexual misconduct and thousands of lawsuits. While he has been through adversities of his own making, bankruptcies, settlements with authorities over alleged malfeasance at his charitable foundation and the now-shuttered Trump University, he has always remained unbowed. These days are over, not even a self-granted preemptive presidential pardon would allow Trump to evade authorities probing him.

There is no way out. Since most of these probes are state, not federal investigations, Trump cannot pardon himself preemptively on the way out the door. Time is running short.

Happy New Year Mr. President,

I just hope your loyal supporters and friends will visit you in whatever jail you will be ending.

Not Only in the USA ~ March for Trump in Japan

JAPAN January 6, 2021: Tokyo Trump supporters march to decry US election result

TOKYO: hundreds rallied in support of Trump on Wednesday, protesting the US presidential elections results, which they say are fraudulent. The rally took place as the US Congress was gathering in the Capitol to certify the victory of President-elect Joe Biden.

Japanese Trump supporters were chanting slogans such as ”Fight for Trump” while marching and carrying banners reading ”Trump win! Japan win!”

“Many people from all over the United States should be gathering in Washington, DC, in the USA to support President Trump. Here we are, Japanese people, who support President Trump,” said Takao Furuyama, one of the Trump supporters.

“And we believe that he is thinking about the peace of the United States, the peace of Japan, and the peace of the world,” he added.

Masumi Yokuni, another demonstrator, said, “I think President Trump is the president who fights the deep state, revealing what has happened behind the scenes and behind the politics of the world, without our knowledge. I am supporting him because I think that his winning will be a big boost not only for the United States but also for Japan and the world.”

The incumbent president has said he won’t give up the White House to President-elect Joe Biden. Trump’s legal team launched a series of court cases to overturn the results after the official results called Biden as the president-elect, without providing compelling evidence.

What do you know!

Not only in the USA; There are crazy idiotic people all around the world!

The Trump Raffensperger Infamous and Incriminating Phone Call

A total lack of judgement! Who in his right mind would make such a call, who would discuss such issues over the phone? Only Donald J. Trump!

Trump is suffering from the James Bond Syndrome: a disorder in which someone like Trump believes that he can run barefoot and nude in a snowbank, at 40 below zero while carrying an infinite of weapons and ammunitions up his ass and still maintain an erection.

Donald J. Trump, The Art of Covert Hypnosis

The Obscene Presidential Reign of Donald J. Trump

INTRODUCTION

In the old Kingdom of ancient Egypt, the first pharaohs understood the extraordinary power of ideology and of its visual counterpart, iconography, to unite disparate people and bind them in loyalty to them and the state. Ancient Egypt’s earliest kings formulated and harnessed the tools of leadership that are still present with us today, especially under the obscene presidential reign of Donald J. Trump: elaborate trappings of office and carefully choreographed public appearances; pomp and spectacles on grand state occasions, all of these trappings expressed orally and visually to set him apart from the populace and reinforce the bonds of loyalty of his supporters. But, like for Trump today, the pharaohs and their advisers knew equally well that their grip on power could be maintained just as effectively by other less benevolent means: political cunning propaganda, a personal and political ideology of xenophobia, close surveillance of the masses and population mood, brutal repression of any form of dissent.

The ancient Egyptians invented the concept of nation-state that still dominates our planet five thousand years later. The Egyptians’ creation was remarkable, not only for its impact, but also for its longevity: the pharaonic age lasted for three millennia. By comparison, Rome barely managed to rule the world for one millennium, the hegemony of the British Empire lasted only for a few centuries and the American supremacy has yet to survive. A key reason for this remarkable survival is that the philosophical and political framework first developed at the birth of ancient Egypt was so well attuned to the national psyche that it remained the archetypal pattern of government for the next one hundred generations; despite prolonged periods of political fragmentation, decentralization, and unrest, the pharaonic rule remained a powerful ideal.

Other times, other manners. Ancient Egypt was a sparsely populated tribal society, its polytheistic religion, pre-monetary economy, the low rate of literacy, the political ideological dominance of divine kingship, all these defining characteristics of ancient Egypt are utterly alien to most contemporary Western civilization including the United States of America and its constituency. Notwithstanding how devious Donald J. Trump may be, what did work for the ancient Egypt’s rulers may not work for him and help him in his 2020 reelection crusade. The arrogance of Donald J. Trump and his self-confidence contain the seeds of his own destruction and the obliteration of the USA domination and influence around the world.

PEOPLE: IT IS NOW TIME TO GO NUCLEAR ON THIS CLOWN

“I am awesome!” – Donald Trump

“I am exceptionally smart” he said.” “I’m, like, a very smart person,” he assured voters in 2016, “A very stable genius,” he ruled two years later.

And then, on last April 24, this exceptionally smart, very stable genius comes out with this unbelievable statement suggesting “injection” of disinfectant to beat coronavirus and “clean” the lungs. No modern politician anywhere in the world can match and surpass Trump’s record of irrational or illogical statements.

Trump is in a class of its own.

His constant careless and too often delusional statements definitely invited questions about his intelligence and actual state of mind.

When Rex Tillerson called Trump a “moron” in private, he was absolutely right. So where all other former senior administration officials that did the same or rendered equivalent verdicts.

Trump is a megalomaniac.

Since long before his 2016 campaign, few subjects have been as meaningful to him as appraisals of his intellect. For Trump, it always has been a source of perpetual obsession and manifest insecurity, so much, that he always felt and still do feel the need to allude to his brainpower regularly.

Trump does not want to feel like anybody is better than he is. He cannot deal with that and this is the reason why he his so often dismissing doctors and their opinions. He used to be intimidated by lawyers. Anyone who knows more than he does makes him feel less than he is.

Don’t get me wrong, I always cheer the underdog and applaud when they win. But if I was still be praising Trump, I would have to question my own sanity!

I now believe that it is time to go nuclear on Trump.

The only remedy is the 25th Amendment.

Are the media more to blame than Trump for the white supremacist rhetoric surge?

From Trump to Fox News to 8chan: the web of white supremacist rhetoric is wide

Since 16 June 2015, the day he rode an escalator down to the lobby of Trump Tower, Trump has made fear of immigrants and those who might look like immigrants, the central theme of his campaigns and his administrative priorities. Trump is a politician perfectly fitted for a media ecosystem that amplifies extreme emotions, resists complex or nuanced thought, impedes deliberation and allows the loud to drown out the calm. Regardless of his tweets and speeches, his actions have inspired and emboldened violent bigots.

It’s hard in the heat of the moment, in the face of so much suffering and horror, to look at the entire ecosystem that fosters and encourages such thought and action. There are no simple, straightforward causes for this phenomenon. There is no simple “solution”. There is not one distinct medium to blame. White nationalists are savvy about how they work our dynamic, interconnected media ecosystem. Some are even savvier than the journalists who write about them and definitely know to exploit the weaknesses of the system. When they post screeds on forums such as 8Chan, white nationalists intend for police and journalists to quote directly from them and spread their messages farther than they could themselves. Their claims and terms of choice leap from the dark recesses of small, discrete groups into wider circulation. Coverage and quotes echo around mainstream news reports, then get recirculated even farther and revised into vernacular commentary via amateur posts to Twitter, WhatsApp and Facebook. Facebook’s algorithms are designed to amplify content that generates strong emotions and thus, user reactions. Individuals add their own perspectives, reaction to the supremacist’s events and gelling into new forms and new expressions via Facebook and Twitter. What rises on Twitter tends to echo on Facebook and vice versa. Soon images and messages are bouncing back and forth, getting picked up by cable news, newspapers and news sites.

Every player in this complex ecosystem enhances, amplifies and changes the story and the message. The spectacle is the reward. For violent white nationalists and all other propagandists of all kinds and gender, this is an ideal media system. Their numbers can grow once their messages don’t seem so jarring and outside the bounds of normal conversation. The rhetoric of violent white supremacy like for the rhetoric of LGBT groups, the #MeToo movement has become common, almost normal. More and more people find homosexuality, lesbianism, white nationalism and so on, viable and acceptable.

Many, like for any other deviant philosophy and way of life, become less willing to condemn discrimination, racism and bigotry and mainstream media, journalists and pundits, like it or not, by their continuous insistence on reporting and commenting on Trump’s elucubrations are only contributing to convince a growing majority of their audience to grant racists the benefit of the doubt and take their concerns seriously.

In a world of increasing poverty and misery, more and more people might find white nationalism a comfortable world view, one that satisfies a once-latent urge to bond only with those like them and blame problems on those unlike them.

It is about time for all media to realize that without them, like for all deviant groups, Trump is nothing.

Give Trump the credit

FadeDonald

Trump is a political animal

Throughout the primary season, Trump surprisingly demonstrated a never seen before acute political instinct that is hard to match.

During the February Florida Republican debate, Trump was asked about former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s comment that his country wouldn’t pay for Trump’s “fucking wall.”

“The wall just got 10 feet taller,” Trump shot back.

He then called on Fox to apologize for his foul language, reiterated that Mexico would, indeed, pay for the wall and hit Mexico for its countless sins against the United States.

In slapping down the former Mexican president, Trump reiterated and confirmed his toughness and nationalistic fiber.

Trump did the same thing when he turned Ted Cruz’s “New York values” attack into a riff about 9/11.

And again, reaffirming his patriotic values, in response to the San Bernardino terror attack, when he proposed his now infamous temporary ban on all Muslims entering the United States.

Everyone denounced him. Apparently, no one agreed with him.

Trump could not care less. For trump, the emotional punch of the ban, and the way it differentiated him from the other candidates, was the important thing and ultimately, a large part of the Republican voters agreed with him.

In New Hampshire, 65 percent supported the ban, in South Carolina, 74 percent supported it, in New York, 68 percent.

Trump calls it as it is

With no pollsters, no speechwriters, no fundraising staff, little campaign organization, few TV advertisements, no debate prep, Trump has won the Republican presidential nomination.

Trump’s achievement is not so difficult to comprehend.

He did it by pounding a simple, emotive message over and over: “Making America Great Again”. He did it not being afraid of controversy and saying it as it is. It made him stand out from a field of an original field of seventeen candidates.

Trump’s every act of outrageousness reinforced his reputation as the “truth-telling” outsider.

Challenging and changing the rules

Trump while proving to be an exceptionally skilled politician was also fortunate. Not being taken seriously, for most of the primary season, there wasn’t any organized effort against him. He won three out of the first four contests while his rivals squabbled among themselves.

The establishment initially bet on Jeb Bush, and then, tapped out financially and psychologically, did nothing to rally around Cruz, whom many insiders fear and hate more than Trump.

Rubio may have been an option but trying to go against Trump mano to mano was not is greatest idea.

All of sudden, it became clear that the only alternative to a clean Trump nomination was a contested convention.

Trump has changed all the political rules. What he has done is not easily replicable. Now it is on to the next test: Will the Trump’s recipe work in the general election or will he fade away?

It would be foolish to discount his chances.

Donald Trump: Defying Gravity

donald-trump-exlarge

Donald Trump: Against all odds

Everyone said it wouldn’t happen. Everyone was wrong.

May 3, 2016, Donald Trump pulls off one of the most unlikely electoral coups of modern times. Toppling the political and media establishment, Trump becomes the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

His campaign initially dismissed as a joke, Trump confounds the pundits to such a degree that all bets are off about how the rest of the 2016 Presidential race might unfold.

‘Thought I’d be going longer’

Even Trump himself seemed surprised by the swiftness at which he locked down the nomination. In an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday May 4, Trump said he expected Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton to finish her primary campaign before him. “I’m even surprised,” Trump said. “I thought I’d be going longer, she’d be going shorter.”

But the drudgery of presidential politics leaves no time for relishing victory.

In his first full day as the presumptive nominee, Trump’s campaign had to quickly shift gears from a primary fight to a search for a running mate.

Meanwhile, Trump faces a host of new questions including whether his unorthodox approach to winning the GOP primary will translate into a general election battle against one of the biggest names in politics today: Hilary Clinton.

Starting from a tough place

The latest CNN/ORC poll dated Wednesday May 4 find that Clinton leads Trump 54% to 41% in a potential general election match-up. She is more trusted than him on issues ranging from foreign policy to education and health care.

Still, by a 50% to 45% margin, voters say Trump would do a better job handling the economy. And almost 9 out of 10 voters in the poll called the economy extremely or very important to their vote, outranking any other issue tested in the poll.

The political skills that Trump brought to the primary fight could prove potent in a race already shaping up as a bitter, nasty personal clash between the two presidential candidates.

Up to now, Trump’s tough tactics disrupted one of the most experienced Republican fields of presidential candidates in a generation. He destroyed the political hopes of Jeb Bush with his “low energy” jibe. He destroyed the political hopes of Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio referring to them as “Lying” Ted and “Little” Marco.

Trump is now trying to take a similar approach to Clinton, dubbing her “Crooked Hillary,” accusing her to play “The Women Card”.

Revolutionizing political campaigns

With an spot-on eye for a rival’s weaknesses, Trump revolutionized how campaigns are won, becoming a master of social media, hijacking news agendas with skills honed on a reality television and a mastery of targeted marketing.

And with undeniable political skill, Trump became an earthy cypher for ignored blue collar Americans who revile conventional politicians as they struggle to get by in a wounded economy.

Using just a few issues, like illegal immigration, the toll wreaked on industrial communities by free trade and by playing into a wider sense of national decline with his “Make America Great Again” message, Trump made himself an unstoppable political force. His bite was so intimidating that by the time competitors such as Bush, Cruz and Rubio mustered the courage to criticize his past, his character and his politics, their campaigns were already faltering.

Clinton may not make a similar mistake. In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, she showed no problem hitting Trump. “He’s a loose cannon,” she said. “And loose cannons tend to misfire.”

Even though along the primaries, Trump lifted his vote totals easily above the 50% mark, his core support in the blue collar Republican electorate still represents a minority of opinion in a nation that is becoming more diverse and less white.

Defying rock-bottom approval ratings

Trump enters the general election with rock-bottom approval ratings among Hispanics, African-Americans and women.

His rudimentary policy platforms will come under increasing scrutiny. Then voters will have to decide if they are willing to elect a President whose impact is already reaching far beyond the nation’s borders, triggering palpable concern abroad.

Trump’s critics worry that his political rhetoric on issues from immigration to women’s rights take American politics closer to the dark fringes of demagoguery than it has been for decades and the Democratic barrage has already begun.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren went on the attack soon after Trump’s triumph in Indiana tweeting that Trump built his campaign on “racism, sexism, and xenophobia” and that what happens next “will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness.”

Many Democrats believe that Trump’s victory in the GOP primary means they are almost certain to keep the White House. However, as the past year has proven, they would be unwise to underestimate the power of Trump.

Trump will be the next president of the United States of America.
