Causality, takes you back to the republican primary, where he was given a very easy ride by ALL the media, a regular complaint by the other candidates at the time.

One assumes the democrat media were happy because his flaws made him unelectable, so a lot of angry people in the media were largely responsible for allowing him a run against Hillary, who was seriously flawed. The liberal media really lost the plot after Hillary lost and anyone with a detached view can see, they overreached.

Lets face it many of Trump supporters think he probably shouldn't be President of the United States, a narcissist with some serious character flaws particularly around telling the truth. But every time people play the man and not the issue, he actually improves his chances of a second term.
 
The Rotund Precedent Frump who is, according to his own ego the smartest person ever, drops yet another clanger
Where is the media outrage over the catch-and-release policies that allowed deadly drugs to pour into our country? Where is the condemnation of the Democrats’ sanctuary cities that release violent criminals into our communities and then protect them? Like the Mayor of San Diego when she warned everybody that ICE is coming, and they scattered. A big operation, or expensive operation. They were all together. They all scattered. And what are they going to do about looking at her, by the way? I’ve been asking this question now for four weeks. She can do that?​
One slight problem… it was actually the Mayor of Oakland, not San Diego so no wonder no-one answered the question ya fat man-baby .
 
Sinclair Forces Stations To Air Commentary Arguing ‘Liberal’ Reports of Child Detention Were Exaggerated.
by Rachel Dicker | 12:53 pm, June 21st, 2018
Frump Propaganda TV


In the latest chapter of “Sinclair Spews Conservative Propaganda on Hundreds of Television Channels,” the media conglomerate forced its networks to air a segment claiming that the outcry over the Trump administration’s practice of separating children from their families and placing them in detention centers was largely just liberal histrionics.

The “must-run” segment, anchored by Sinclair Chief Political Analyst and former Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn, is slated to air on more than 100 Sinclair-owned or operated news stations across the U.S., Media Matters reports. Many of these are local news stations.

“Our immigration system is undeniably broken and the discourse around this topic is toxic,” Epshteyn says in the segment. “Many members of the media and opponents of the president have seized on this issue to make it seem as if those who are tough on immigration are somehow monsters.”

“Let’s be honest: While some of the concern is real, a lot of it is politically driven by the liberals in politics and the media,” he continues. “Some have even gone as far as comparing American immigration policies to the Holocaust.”



“The president is working to show that it is possible to balance humanity with security for our borders,” he adds. However (No word on the president implementing that inhumane “zero tolerance” policy in the first place.)

" Believe me.”

U.S. President Donald Trump has used that phrase countless times, whether he is talking about counterterrorism (“I know more about ISIS than the generals do. Believe me”), building a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border (“Believe me, one way or the other, we’re going to get that wall”), or the Iran nuclear deal (“Believe me. Oh, believe me. . . . It’s a bad deal”).

Trump wants to be taken at his word. But public opinion polls consistently indicate that between two-thirds and three-quarters of Americans do not find him trustworthy. The global picture is no better. Most citizens of traditional U.S. allies, such as Australia, France, Germany, Japan, Jordan, Mexico, South Korea, and the United Kingdom, say that they have no confidence in the U.S. president.

In other words, Trump suffers from a credibility gap. This is, perhaps, unsurprising. According to The New York Times, Trump said something untrue every day for the first 40 days of his presidency. His actions speak even louder.

Trump has sown doubt about some of the United States’ oldest and most important commitments, such as its support for NATO—an alliance Trump described as “obsolete” in January, before declaring it “no longer obsolete” in April. He has flip-flopped on policy positions, publicly undermined the efforts of members of his own administration, and backpedaled on diplomatic agreements, including the Paris climate accord and the Iran nuclear deal.

The United States does not derive its credibility from the words of the executive alone, but Trump’s behavior carries consequences. As the president undermines the nation’s credibility at home and abroad, allies will hesitate to trust American promises, and U.S. threats will lose some of their force. The risks of deadly miscalculation will increase. And to demonstrate its resolve, the United States may need to take more costly and extreme actions.



 
It's no surprise to anyone that the Orange Maniac has a weird feedback loop with Fox News, where he not only gets favorable coverage from the Frump propaganda network but seems to develop his policies based on what they say but, and this is the big laugh... he also colludes with the National Enquirer to ensure only stories that put Hair Furor in a good light are published. The NE is well known as a tabloid magazine that has always published made up crap.

Nothing illegal, both party's enjoy media sympathetic to their own ideologies and The National Enquirer isn’t nearly as influential as Fake News Fox.

The story here is that the Tangerine Twot who regularly complains about “fake news” deals with a publication that literally publishes fake news to stoke his own ego.
 
Trump’s Reckless Mistakes Are Driven By Desperate Fear of the Looming Midterms
by David Atkins
June 23, 2018. A very Good Article

In almost any sport, there comes a time in the dwindling minutes when a losing team has to start making otherwise ill-advised desperation plays. In football, it’s the onside kick and the hail mary pass; in hockey, it’s pulling the goalie; in basketball, it’s quick fouls and long-shot three pointers. It does work every so often or teams wouldn’t do it. But most of the time it only ends up making matters worse, embarrassing the losing side and rendering the final score even more lopsided than it would otherwise have been.

Donald Trump’s latest maneuvers have a similar whiff of desperation to them, and they are backfiring in similar ways. Trump is well aware of his personal and political peril: the Mueller investigation is closing in on targets ever nearer to the president and his family, his longtime consigliere seems almost ready to turn state’s evidence, his businesses and organizations are being sued, and his cabinet is a hotbed of corruption.

Just as Trump has always had to stay a step ahead of his creditors and his victims to avoid disaster throughout his career, so too must he avoid accountability from Congress in the form of investigations and possible impeachment. That means ensuring Republicans stay in control of both the House (where Republicans are actively obstructing justice to protect him from real congressional inquiries) and the Senate (which ultimately has the power to remove him from office pending impeachment in the lower chamber.)

Things look dire for the president on that front, with Democrats maintaining a significant edge in generic congressional polling matchup.

Stripped of its ugly racism and human rights abuses, that’s ultimately what is driving Trump’s disastrous family separation policy and subsequent reluctant reversal. Trump needs to motivate his base, and he knows that his base wants the border wall above all else. He needs it desperately.

Much as Andrew Sullivan seems to have missed it, Democrats have for years been willing to negotiate with Republicans on stricter border security measures in exchange for reasonable immigration reforms–including granting Trump large amounts of funding for his wall. But immigration hardliners like Steve King and Stephen Miller won’t make the necessary concessions.

So with November and a dispirited Republican base barreling down at him, Trump decided to make the same play that desperate bank robbers do: he took hostages. Like a classic mob protection racket, he calculated that Democrats would have enough heartbroken empathy for children ripped from their parents’ arms that they would give Trump all his border wall funding and other concessions just to bring an end to the pain and suffering.

Trump is an ignorant fool by most measures, but he does have a keen gut feel for shifting political winds. He must have sensed the danger in the move and the potential for universal moral condemnation on all sides, but the peril of his situation demanded that he take the risk. It backfired badly.

Like a hockey team victimized again by an empty-net goal and compelled to reinsert the keeper, Trump was forced to pull back where normally he would double- and triple down. But to save face, he lurched forward with an embarrassing attempt to reframe the conversation to victims of crimes committed by victims of crime by undocumented immigrants. But that only earned him tepid coverage even in the right-wing media, and nearly horrified looks from anyone else insofar as they even noticed.

After all, undocumented immigrants commit violent crimes at lower rates than citizens do, and Trump couldn’t help embarrassing himself again by tactlessly signing autographs on the photographs of the very victims whose bloody shirts he was trying to wave.

Now, just a few days after insisting that Republicans take up immigration legislation, Trump has again reversed course, insisting that Republicans wait until after the midterms. But that would only make sense if Trump thought Republicans were going to win a significant number of seats in November, which he must know isn’t going to happen.

But it’s important to remember that Trump’s proclamatory missives aren’t meant for the country as a whole, or for his opponents or even his allies in Washington. They’re for his base, the people who attend his rallies, the deplorables on whom he is depending to flood the polls in November. That’s why he’s bizarrely tweeting about a “red wave”: not because there is any real indication of such a thing, but because he believes that the best way of creating one is through sheer magical realist willpower.

Are these gambits reckless and counterproductive? Certainly, in a normal political sense. But hail mary passes and onside kicks are bad football strategy in a normal football sense, too, until time starts running out on the losing team.

Time is running out on Trump and his party as we approach a midterm election that seems likely to go against him. That in turns means the plays he will calls will likely become even more bizarre and heedless in the months ahead.

Well the fat wankerr has some good news at last which I am proud to report.

Trump Applauds Steel Industry Investments; Mill Reopening Following Tariff Hikes

Read Newsmax: Trump Applauds Steel Industry Investments; Mill Reopening Following Tariff Hikes | Newsmax.com

President Donald Trump early Saturday applauded investments being made in the United States steel industry, following the announcement that an India-based company plans to invest millions in a closed Ohio steel mill after his moves on tariffs on imported steel and on tax reform.

"Steel is coming back fast!" Trump tweeted. "U.S. Steel is adding great capacity also. So are others."

The president provided a link to a Fox Business story about plans made from JSW Steel USA, which plans to invest $500 million to build a new factory in the U.S., along with modernizing the former Acero Junction plant in Mingo Junction, Ohio. The facility had been owned and operated for decades by Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Corp.


"The Trump administration was the driver behind giving us in the U.S. the ability to compete for capital," JSW Steel USA CEO John Hritz told Fox Business.

JSW Steel is buying the defunct arc furnace and rolling mill for $80.9 million, and plans to invest more than $500 million in the steel plant, which was built in 1929, rather than opening a new facility in India.

The project is expected to create at least 300 permanent jobs in the Jefferson County, Ohio, location, sparking new life in an area hit hard when the mill closed its doors.

Great news for the people in Jefferson County. Well done Trump, great job proving that you are smarter than the average bear.

Oh No, what's this on the same page?

However, the growing trade war and tariffs are harming several companies already operating in the nation
Trump's steel tariffs are disrupting domestic supply chains and resulting in retaliation from global trading partners against American products George Skarich, the vice president of sales for the Missouri-based Mid Continent Nail Corporation, told The Times he'd voted for Trump, but he feared the growing trade wars will put his company out of business.

Mid Continent, as the largest U.S. producer of nails, uses imported Mexican steel, which is now subject to the 25 percent Trump tariffs. That has forced the company to raise prices by nearly 20 percent, and orders have dropped by 50 percent this month alone. The company has cut 60 jobs from its 500-person workforce, and could cut 200 more in coming weeks.

I bet you $2,000,0000 that the Tangerine Twot doesn't mention the 2nd part.
 
Admittedly, The Daily Beast seems not to be a fan of Trump so is biased, but in this opinion piece they think the caging of children has caused him a massive problem in that many Trump supporters have criticised him over it.

This Was the Week That Finally Broke Trump’s Spell
It's not just the Daily Beast that had this opinion a lot of the Right Wing media came to the same conclusion as well. Despite the efforts to discredit the Democrats it was bad optics all round and became a world wide story that put the US in a bad light. Trump never expected the outcry and once again chose the wrong route to get out of it by insisting that his 'zero policy' was the right thing to do and using the same tactics to throw blame on everyone else but him which I believe people are beginning to see through.

The Sarah Huckabee Sanders scam
Opinion » Columnists

See more at The Sarah Huckabee Sanders scam

Recently, the Online world was filled with right-wing "outrage" over the fact that Donald Trump's chief propagandist, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, had been asked to leave a small restaurant in Virginia due to the owner's disdain for Huckabee Sanders's often disingenuous defense of Trump's policies.

Much of this outrage mirrored a theme I discussed in a recent Pravda.Report article, I Love Free Speech; I Hate Free Speech (June 5, 2018): That people will vociferously support speech and/or actions that comport with their beliefs, and just as vociferously condemn speech and/or actions that don't.

As many commentators pointed out, Huckabee Sanders had no compunction about praising a recent Supreme Court decision that allowed a private business to refuse service to a gay couple, and
undoubtedly many of those now expressing "outrage" at her so-called "mistreatment" most likely applauded this decision as well. And how many of these same commentators, through online contributions, raised almost a million dollars for the owners of an Indiana pizzeria after they announced they would not provide catering services for same-sex weddings (How To Get Rich in America, Pravda.Report, April 9, 2015).


But what has been left out of the equation is that people like Trump and Huckabee Sanders, who incessantly holler "fake news" when the facts don't suit their delusions, certainly should know how to create fake news themselves.

Today in America, the media, and millions of its citizens, are outraged by Trump's immigration policy that separates children from their parents. And, although Trump and his fellow goose-steppers have been largely successful in the past diverting attention from their cruelty and ineptitude by attacking the media, exploiting racism, and pandering to the mindless cultism of many of his supporters, these time-worn antics were ultimately unable to erase the images of crying children being held in cages.

So what better way to shift attention away from the true victims than to become a "victim" yourself?

According to the Washington Post, the restaurant Huckabee Sanders was asked to leave is a "farm to table" style restaurant that seats twenty-six people and "is no bigger than some apartments." It is roughly two hundred miles from Washington D.C. Huckabee Sanders, or someone in her party, had apparently made reservations under her husband's name.

The restaurant is located in a small Virginia town with a population of around 7000. The citizens of this town had voted "overwhelmingly against Trump in a county that had voted overwhelmingly for him."

Also, according to Heavy.Com, the restaurant owner is environmentally conscious, receives vegetables from a farm founded by Mexican immigrants, and has gay employees-everything Trump despises.

So, let's examine this scenario. First, the Washington D.C area has a plethora of larger restaurants Huckabee Sanders could have gone to, where she would have probably been welcomed; Second, the reservations suggest that Huckabee Sanders's party intended to make the two hundred mile drive and did not just come upon this restaurant by happenstance; Third, the restaurant is located in an oasis of liberalism surrounded by a desert of Trump supporters; Fourth, the political views of its owner, the fact that it is owned locally and not by a corporation, and its small size virtually guaranteed that the presence of Huckabee Sanders would cause consternation; Fifth, other slime that works for Trump, like Stephen Miller and Kirstjen Nielsen, have recently been heckled at restaurants; Sixth, Trump has already shown, through the sycophantic antics of Mike Pence, that he is willing to send his lackeys to places, just so they can make dramatic, highly visible, exits.

Add them up and what do you get?-the old diversionary tactic of criminals portraying themselves as victims to divert attention from their crimes. This is reinforced by the fact that Huckabee Sanders did not simply state she was asked to leave a restaurant: She made a special point of both naming the restaurant and giving its location, and, in doing so, may have, according to a former director of the Office of Government Ethics, violated ethics laws by using her official White House account to disseminate this information.

There is little doubt that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is one of the most despicable human beings to ever walk the face of the earth, and whatever shreds of a soul she once had have long since evaporated. She is not a victim. She is, like the tyrant she serves, a cold, calculating, dissembling, mendacious, hypocritical, sociopathic fascist.

And she knows that, in the cult of Trump, you can fool some of the people all of the time.

Why Trade Wars don't work

An opinion piece with a view shared by many of the worlds economists.

The art of Trump’s deals: How the president’s trade wars could lead to another Great Depression
NOMI PRINS, TOMDISPATCH
24 JUN 2018 AT 07:27 ET


Readers are routinely confronted with philosophical dilemmas. Here’s a classic one for our Trumptopian times: If you make enemies out of your friends and friends out of your enemies, where does that leave you?
This piece originally appeared on TomDispatch.

What does winning (or losing) really look like? Is a world in which walls of every sort encircle America’s borders a goal worth seeking? And what would be left in a future fragmented international economic system marked by tit-for-tat tariffs, travel restrictions, and hyper-nationalism? Ultimately, how will such a world affect regular people?

Let’s cut through all of this for the moment and ask one crucial question about our present cult-of-personality era in American politics: Other than accumulating more wealth and influence for himself, his children, and the Trump family empire, what’s Donald J. Trump’s end game as president? If his goal is to keep this country from being, as he likes to complain, “the world’s piggy bank,” then his words, threats, and actions are concerning. However bombastic and disdainful of a history he appears to know little about, he is already making the world a less stable, less affordable, and more fear-driven place. In the end, it’s even possible that, despite the upbeat economic news of the moment, he could almost singlehandedly smash that piggy bank himself, as he has many of his own business ventures.

Still, give him credit for one thing: Donald Trump has lent remarkable new meaning to the old phrase “the imperial presidency.” The members of his administration, largely a set of aging white men, either conform to his erratic wishes or get fired. In other words, he’s running domestic politics in much the same fashion as he oversaw the boardroom on his reality TV show “The Apprentice.”

Now, he’s begun running the country’s foreign policy in the same personalized, take-no-prisoners, you’re-fired style. From the moment he hit the Oval Office, he’s made it clear at home and abroad that it’s his way or the highway. If only, of course, it really was that simple. What he will learn, if “learning process” and “President Trump” can even occupy the same sentence, is that “firing” Canada, the European Union (EU), or for that matter China has a cost.

What the American working and the middle classes will see (sooner than anyone imagines) is that actions of his sort have unexpected global consequences. They could cost the U.S. and the rest of the world big time. If he were indeed emperor and his subjects (that would be us) grasped where his policies might be leading, they would be preparing a revolt. In the end, they — again, that’s us — will be the ones paying the price in this global chess match.

The art of Trump’s deals
So far, President Trump has only taken America out of trade deals or threatened to do so if other countries don’t behave in a way that satisfies him
. On his third day in the White House, he honored his campaign promise to remove the U.S. from the Trans Pacific Partnership, a decision that opened space for our allies and competitors, China in particular, to negotiate deals without us. Since that grand exit, there has, in fact, been a boom in side deals involving China and other Pacific rim countries that has weakened, not strengthened, Washington’s global bargaining position. Meanwhile, closer to home, the Trump administration has engaged in a barrage of NAFTA-baiting that is isolating us from our regional partners, Canada and Mexico.

Conversely, the art-of-the-deal aficionado has yet to sign a single new bilateral trade deal. Despite steadfast claims that he would serve up the best deals ever, we have been left with little so far but various tariffs and an onslaught against American trading partners. His one claim to bilateral-trade-deal fame was the renegotiation of a six-year-old deal with South Korea in March that doubled the number of cars each U.S. manufacturer could export to South Korea (without having to pass as many safety standards).

As White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders put it, when speaking of Kim Jong-un’s North Korea, “The President is, I think, the ultimate negotiator and dealmaker when it comes to any type of conversation…” She left out the obvious footnote, however: any type that doesn’t involve international trade.

In the past four months, Trump has imposed tariffs, exempting certain countries, only to re-impose them at his whim. If trust were a coveted commodity, when it came to the present White House, it would now be trading at zero. His supporters undoubtedly see this approach as the fulfillment of his many campaign promises and part of his classic method of keeping both friends and enemies guessing until he’s ready to go in for the kill. At the heart of this approach, however, lies a certain global madness, for he now is sparking a set of trade wars that could, in the end, cost millions of American jobs.
