Trump directly attacks Fed Chairman Powell, saying ‘Obama had zero’ interest rates

  • President Donald Trump attacked Fed Chairman Powell by name in an interview with the Wall Street Journal.

  • Trump accused Powell of endangering the U.S. economy by raising interest rates.

  • The U.S. president indicated that he sees the current performance of the economy as a competition between himself and President Barack Obama.

SOURCE .

President Donald Trump directly accused Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell of endangering the U.S. economy by raising interest rates, according to The Wall Street Journal.

“I’m just saying this: I’m very unhappy with the Fed because Obama had zero interest rates,” Trump told the Journal on Tuesday. “Every time we do something great, he raises the interest rates.”

The president said Powell “almost looks like he’s happy raising interest rates,” but declined to elaborate, according to the Journal.

Trump acknowledged that the Fed is traditionally independent of political influence, the Journal reported, but he still pressed his attacks and appears to view the United States’ current economic performance as a competition between himself and President Barack Obama.

Trump on Fed Chief: ‘Maybe’ I Shouldn’t Have Hired Him

President goes after Jerome Powell and central bank for raising interest rates

Still, Trump told the Journal that while it’s “too early to say,” he “maybe” isn’t so sure he should have nominated Powell…in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. Trump called the Fed the “biggest risk” to the economy, due to the three times it’s raised interest rates this year; it will likely do so a fourth time in December. Trump lamented Powell “was supposed to be a low-interest-rate guy. It’s turned out that he’s not,” adding that Powell “almost looks like he’s happy” when he raises the rates. Trump also seemed irritated that during former President Obama’s tenure in the White House, interest rates hovered near zero.

Former White House Lawyer Ty Cobb Says Mueller Probe Isn’t ‘A Witch Hunt’

That assessment pits Cobb against his former boss, President Donald Trump.

SOURCE .

(EXCERPTS.)

Former White House lawyer Ty Cobb on Monday said he doesn’t buy President Donald Trump’s claim that the ongoing special counsel investigation is a “witch hunt.”

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing probe is investigating, among other things, whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia to help its candidate win the 2016 presidential election.

Trump and his allies have repeatedly called the investigation a “witch hunt” and denied that there was collusion. The president has on a number of occasions floated the idea of firing Mueller.

Cobb, who stepped down from his post as White House lawyer in May, told host Gloria Borger at CNN’s CITIZEN Conference in New York on Monday that he rejects the president’s analysis of the probe. He also praised Mueller, who he said he has “respected” for decades.

“Bob Mueller is an American hero in my view,” Cobb said during a panel with Jack Quinn, who served as White House lawyer under former President Bill Clinton. “He was a very serious prosecutor. He and I first met in the mid-’80s when we were prosecuting different places, and I have respected him throughout.”

During his tenure at the White House, Cobb was the lead attorney dealing with requests from the special counsel. He repeatedly said Trump would eventually agree to meet with Mueller, though the president hasn’t always appeared willing to do so. 

Trump replaced Cobb with Emmet Flood, who represented President Clinton during his impeachment hearings

The “Blind Ape Theory” Proven Right Yet Again

“The Blind Ape Theory”: Even a blind ape will hit something if it throws enough crap.

As applied here to Trump (and Co.) is that even Trump in his multitude of words, screeds, rants, and tirades is occasionally- usually accidentally- right.

But as all things with Trump even when he blindly stumbles onto the right side of an issue it is 1) usually for the WRONG reason, and/or 2) presented, and applied in the WRONG way.

Case in point: Illegals invading U.S. Sovereign territory. 

F-bombs and a storm-out by Trump’s top staff as tensions rise over border policies

An angry exchange between Trump officials over how to curtail rising border crossings points to a widening White House divide.

by Carol E. Lee, Julia Ainsley and Nicolle Wallace /

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s frustration over rising numbers of undocumented immigrants crossing into the U.S. is stoking tensions among his advisers as some White House officials push for a more aggressive policy that includes completely sealing the southern border, said four people familiar with the discussions.

The differences escalated into an angry, profanity-laced exchange on Thursday between White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and national security adviser John Bolton as a Honduran migrant caravan of roughly 4,000 people approached the U.S. border. The dispute was so heated, according to several people, that Kelly ended up storming out of the White House shortly afterward.

Trump’s hard-line stance on immigration, including family separation policies that involved holding children in cages, has been a centerpiece of his presidency and a core message ahead of the midterm elections. But his failure to secure funding for a promised wall along the border with Mexico, coupled with a renewed surge in border crossings, has tested his ability to make good on his promises.

=========================

MORE SOURCING .

WHAT DOES THE U.S. CONSTITUTION SAY ABOUT THIS?

Article IV

Section 4.

The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence.

So, on this ONE, LONE issue Trump IS RIGHT.

We DO need border security, deportation of ILLEGALS, in short, a Border Security Fence.

BUT…Trump does NOT arrive at this conclusion based solely on Constitutional means, rooted in Law and Order. No. Trump is a life-long racist and bigot, and a very stupid, arrogant one to boot. Hate and prejudice motivate Trump’s stupidity- NOT Law and Order, and certainly NOT The U.S. Constitution.

SO, WHAT CAN BE LEGALLY DONE VIA CONSTITUTIONAL MEANS?

I proposed THIS back in late 1999, early 2000 before President George W. Bush and Congress passed law on this in 2006. (BTW, they were right in what they said and signed into law, WRONG on NOT following through on it.)

MY PROPOSAL BASED ON THE CONSTITUTION:

  1. BUILD A DOUBLE REINFORCED SECURITY ALONG ENTIRE BORDER.
  2. FENCE HEIGHT 30 FT. .
  3. HAVE DITCHES 30 FT. DEEP AND 30 FT. SIDE ON BOTH SIDES OF FENCE.
  4. PLACE BARBED WIRE AND RAZOR WIRE IN DITCHES ON BOTH SIDES OF FENCE, AND BARBED WIRE AND RAZOR WIRE AT TOPS OF BOTH FENCES.
  5. PLACE STATE OF THE ART MOTION DETECTORS, SOUND DETECTORS, CAMERAS, NIGHT VISION CAMERAS ALONG ENTIRE FENCE.
  6. TRIPLE BORDER PATROL/SECURITY.
  7. ON ROTATING BASIS STATION EACH STATE’S NATIONAL GUARD ALONE ENTIRE BORDER.
  8. FINE ALL BUSINESSES THAT HIRE ILLEGALS $500,000 PER ILLEGAL.
  9. ABSOLUTELY NO WELFARE, NO WIC, NO FOOD STAMPS, NO EDUCATION, NO SOCIAL SECURITY, NOTHING THAT IS FOR LEGAL U.S. RESIDENTS AND CITIZENS.
  10. ROUND UP AND DEPORT ALL ILLEGALS.

The Long Line Of Treason

Donald Trump.

“Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.”

The Train Of Abuses Keeps Getting Longer By The Day

FIRST-

Trump team’s contact with Mueller targets could taint findings

Legal experts say the president’s lawyers may be pushing ethical boundaries by communicating with people involved in the Mueller probe.

[MY NOTE: “may be”?? There is NO “may be”! Trump & Co. ARE guilty of obstruction of justice, witness tampering, bribery or threats- or both, perjury, fraud, conspiracy to steal an election, and treason.]

SOURCE .

LET’S LOOK AT THIS CLOSER…

Trump & Co. are under investigation for:

CONSPIRACY TO TAMPER WITH AND STEAL AN ELECTION

PERJURY

FRAUD

CORRUPTION

COLLUSION

WITNESS TAMPERING: BRIBERY AND THREATS

OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

PUBLIC DAILY ATTACKING LAW ENFORCEMENT AND THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

EVIDENCE TAMPERING/DESTRUCTION and

TREASON.

SOooooo, what does Trump & Co. do??

Do they behave as INNOCENT people?

Do they let the investigation run its course as people INNOCENT of any wrong/crime?

Do they remain SILENT and do NOT say or do ANYTHING to interfere or meddle with the investigation? like those who are INNOCENT?

When they do speak or act they they do so with RESPECT and DEFERENCE to the Law Enforcement and Justice System investigating them? again, like INNOCENT people?

The answer to all these questions is a resounding “NO!”. 

What they DO engage in is the very type of activities that they are under investigation for!!

Rick Gates Sought Online Manipulation Plans From Israeli Intelligence Firm for Trump Campaign

SOURCE .

WASHINGTON — A top Trump campaign official requested proposals in 2016 from an Israeli company to create fake online identities, to use social media manipulation and to gather intelligence to help defeat Republican primary race opponents and Hillary Clinton, according to interviews and copies of the proposals.

The Trump campaign’s interest in the work began as Russians were escalating their effort to aid Donald J. Trump. Though the Israeli company’s pitches were narrower than Moscow’s interference campaign and appear unconnected, the documents show that a senior Trump aide saw the promise of a disruption effort to swing voters in Mr. Trump’s favor.

The campaign official, Rick Gates, sought one proposal to use bogus personas to target and sway 5,000 delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention by attacking Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, Mr. Trump’s main opponent at the time. Another proposal describes opposition research and “complementary intelligence activities” about Mrs. Clinton and people close to her, according to copies of the proposals obtained by The New York Times and interviews with four people involved in creating the documents…

At least 8 Trump associates have already been found GUILTY or plead GUILTY in the Mueller investigation…

WHERE THERE IS SMOKE- THERE IS FIRE…AND WITH THIS MUCH SMOKE THE ENTIRE U.S. IS ON FIRE!!!

AND IT GETS WORSE…

The past 48 hours in Mueller investigation news, explained

We’ve gotten news on Alfa Bank, Psy-Group, and Peter W. Smith — three long-simmering subplots of the Russia investigation.

 

New reports over the past two days have brought increased attention to three long-simmering subplots in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

First, the Wall Street Journal revealed new details about GOP operative Peter W. Smith’s quest to obtain Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers during the 2016 campaign — including that he raised at least $100,000 for the effort and then pitched in $50,000 of his own money. (Smith was found dead last year, and local authorities ruled his death a suicide.)

Second, the New Yorker revisited the question of mysterious online communications between a Russian bank and a domain tied to the Trump Organization. This topic came up during the campaign and was received skeptically, but now the New Yorker quotes experts who’ve reviewed the data and still suspect there’s something there.

Third, the New York Times revealed that an Israeli firm called Psy-Group pitched its “social media manipulation” services to Trump campaign aide Rick Gates in early 2016, but that Gates didn’t hire the firm. Mueller’s team has been investigating Psy-Group closely for months for reasons that are not entirely clear but seem to be about whether the firm did in fact do work on behalf of Trump’s campaign.

All three of these storylines could be quite consequential — or they could have relatively innocuous explanations. But as former Justice Department official Matthew Miller observed on Twitter, all this news should remind us of the staggering complexity of the Mueller investigation, and that there’s still so much we don’t know about what he’s found…

======================

In closing, nothing that Trump has done, EVER, bears the earmarks of an innocent man. Crikey! He barely acts sane!!!

No. Everything about Trump wreaks of fraud, perjury, con, depravity, lies, corruption, deception, distraction, obstruction of justice, witness and evidence tampering…and TREASON.

Trump: The Politics of Distraction

Image result for smoke and mirrors

THE MAIN THING IS TO MAKE SURE THE MAIN THING STAYS THE MAIN THING.

Smoke-n-mirrors (aka Horse-n-Pony, aka Tail-Wagging-The-Dog) tactics are not new to Trump and Co., BUT Trump Inc. has had a plethora of more reasons to utilize them than any 10 other corrupt frauds combined.

Case(s) in point:

  1. Trump’s NAFTA battle with Canada,
  2. Trump’s Border Security battle with Mexico,
  3. Trump’s war on the Media, calling them repeatedly “The Enemy”,
  4. Trump’s war against all 17 of America’s LE & Intel agencies,
  5. Trump’s battles with celebrities, athletes, the entire NFL,
  6. Trump’s smear campaign against Mueller and The FBI,
  7. Trump’s attacks alienating us from out ALLIES,
  8. Trump’s Tariff war on, well, everyone,
  9. and lastly for this list, Trump’s blathering about the Kavanaugh confirmation.

These are important in their proper context, BUT in the context that Trump is using it is nothing but SMOKE-N-MIRRORS to distract us.

“To distract us from what?” Oh, how about from THIS:

Truth squad: Has Iran said it wants to attack Israel?

SOURCE .

[EXCERPTS.]

The statement: “…why is it that we’re talking about Israel having to make a strike against Iran? It’s because Iran has announced they plan to strike Israel.
“They’ve stated, as recently as August just before President Ahmadinejad came to — to the U.N. General Assembly. He said that he wanted to eradicate Israel from the face of the Earth.
“He has said that if he has a nuclear weapon he will use it to wipe Israel off the face of the Earth. He will use it against the United States of America.”
The facts:
In 2005, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, during a meeting with protesting students at Iran’s Interior Ministry, quoted a remark from Ayatollah Khomeini, founder of Iran’s Islamic revolution, that Israel “must be wiped out from the map of the world.”
Ahmadinejad then said: “And God willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world without the United States and Zionism,” according to a quote published by Iran’s state news outlet, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).

 

[NOTE: Some may argue that this is from 7 years ago…my response? Has Iran changed it’s mind or attitude/stance towards Israel and the U.S.? NO.]

Iran and North Korea: Dangerous partners in nuclear proliferation

BY RAYMOND TANTER, OPINION CONTRIBUTOR — 

Iran and North Korea: Dangerous partners in nuclear proliferation

SOURCE .

[EXCERPTS.]

Recall Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia, and the United States formed a political commitment with Iran in Geneva on July 14, 2015. The third anniversary of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, known as the Iran deal will be mid-July 2018. (The deal was neither a treaty nor signed.)

But now there is a new wrinkle concerning Iran: Tehran is an apparent partner in proliferation with North Korea. Iran can get around the “sunset provision” of refraining from a nuclear weapons breakout for 10 years after the commitment was made among the parties to the 2015 nuclear deal: Tehran would be able to purchase technology or knowledge related to building a nuclear weapon from Pyongyang and breakout far sooner.

Earlier this year, CIA Director Mike Pompeo told Fox News:

“As North Korea continues to improve its ability to do longer-range missiles and to put nuclear weapons on those missiles, it is very unlikely, if they get that capability, that they wouldn’t share it with lots of folks, and Iran would certainly be someone who would be willing to pay them for it.”

North Korea and Iran have a history of joint missile development dating back to the 1980s, and both countries have been linked to the same Pakistani nuclear physicist. As CNN reports:

“Iran currently possesses more ballistic missiles than any other country in the Middle East but remains dependent on foreign suppliers for missile development and production.”

North Korea issued another threat of nuclear annihilation against the U.S. on Thursday, vowing to unleash an “unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time.”

The warning comes as American military forces conduct ongoing joint naval exercises with South Korea — and as top U.S. officials warned the rogue regime’s nuclear capabilities are close to being perfected.

TRUMP & Co. ARE GUILTY OT TREASON

And that this treason has so compromised and weakened us that we may not be able to withstand the coming global onslaught…not to mention that the global economies are on verge of a COLLAPSE that will make 1929 look like a picnic in paradise.
