Republican Congressman slams Trump for Attacking Biden while Praising Kim Jong-un

Apparently there are still some patriots left in the Republicans Party. Maybe now more GOPers will come to their senses and realize Donald Trump is leading the party to destruction:

Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger on Sunday blasted President Donald Trump for taking a shot at former Vice President Joe Biden while praising North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

Kinzinger, an Air Force veteran who served in Iraq twice and remains in the Illinois National Guard, complained about a tweet the president posted on Memorial Day weekend.

‘It’s Memorial Day Weekend and you’re taking a shot at Biden while praising a dictator. This is just plain wrong,’ Kinzinger wrote on Twitter.

Corrupt Foreign Donor Who Gives To GOP Gets $62 Million In Trump Trade War Aid

Just another impeachable offense:

President Trump is funneling $62 million of taxpayer funded farm aid to a foreign, Brazilian owned meatpacking company, which is owned by two billionaire majority GOP donor brothers who just so happen to be under investigation by the Department of Justice after the brothers admitted to bribing politicians to obtain benefits for their businesses.

Trump says debt crisis after presidency OK as ‘I won’t be here’: report

Donald Trump has done and said some terrible things. But this could be the worst. He is jeopardizing the future of country by deliberately bankrupting us. Not even Putin (his boss) could be so destructive:

President Donald Trump is said to not be worried about setting the US up for a massive debt crisis because he doesn’t think it’ll erupt until after he leaves office.

Sources close to the presidency told The Daily Beast that Trump had repeatedly shrugged off any concerns about the rising national debt because it was projected to come to a head only after he would finish a second term.

During a 2017 briefing with senior officials, Trump responded to a presentation of charts and graphics by saying, “Yeah, but I won’t be here,” according to a source The Daily Beast said witnessed the comment.

Donald Trump Releases Pride T-shirt

The fraudster in the White House has no shame. He’ll try to get votes wherever he can. But what must those evangelicals that support Trump so passionately be thinking:

President Donald Trump has released a new LGBTQ Pride t-shirt in time for Pride month – a decision that’s confusing and upsetting LGBTQ advocates. The shirt features a watercolor rainbow design and the phrase “LGBTQ for Trump.” The back bears the Trump-Pence campaign logo and phrase, “Make America Great Again.” It normally retails for $30 […]

Meanwhile, this administration is attacking LGBTQ rights:

Candidate Donald Trump promised he would be an LGBTQ ally. Since he’s been in the White House, however, he’s failed to live up to those promises for at least one part of the community, enacting multiple policies that directly target transgender people.

The latest: The Department of Health and Human Services is rolling back regulations that protected transgender people from being discriminated against by health care providers over their gender identity.

Secretive dark money group got $22 million to get Trump SCOTUS pick confirmed – and most came from one anonymous donor

There is a good chance that money came from Russia:

A just-published report by the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics’ award-winning OpenSecrets.org reveals the Judicial Crisis Network, a conservative secretive dark money group received $22 million from anonymous donors in the year leading up to the Tump administration and conservatives’ push to place Brett Kavanaugh on the U.S. Supreme Court.$17 million of that $22 million came from one anonymous donor.

Deutsche Bank Staff Saw Suspicious Activity in Trump and Kushner Accounts

In other words, the Obama administration could have exposed the criminal acts before Trump became president. Because money is more important than duty:

Anti-money laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank recommended in 2016 and 2017 that multiple transactions involving legal entities controlled by Donald J. Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, be reported to a federal financial-crimes watchdog.

The transactions, some of which involved Mr. Trump’s now-defunct foundation, set off alerts in a computer system designed to detect illicit activity, according to five current and former bank employees. Compliance staff members who then reviewed the transactions prepared so-called suspicious activity reports that they believed should be sent to a unit of the Treasury Department that polices financial crimes.

But executives at Deutsche Bank, which has lent billions of dollars to the Trump and Kushner companies, rejected their employees’ advice. The reports were never filed with the government.

GOP senators raise alarms, criticize Trump as U.S.-China trade war heats up

We need more Republicans speaking out against what Trump is doing to his their own constituents. They haven’t spoken out more forcefully in the past because they are afraid of his voters. What these cowards don’t realize is that the occupant in the White House is destroying the GOP. His ‘policies’ will lead to a recession which will cost Republicans control of the Senate and lose them the presidential race in 2020:

Senate Republicans expressed growing concern Tuesday that President Trump’s escalating trade war with China is hurting their constituents in rural America, ratcheting up tension between the White House and Congress on a signature issue.

Some Republican lawmakers, increasingly frustrated with Trump, took the unusual step of openly criticizing a president from their own party.

“I’m not sure if you talk to him face to face, he hears everything you say,” said Senate Finance Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa), who has emerged as one of Trump’s chief critics on trade and who said he planned to write to the president to explain farmers’ concerns.

Is a Desperate Trump trying to start a war with Iran to Divert Attention?

A desperate Trump will do anything to save his skin. Including diverting attention by starting another major war in the middle east, either by design or miscalculation. Unfortunately, the press never seems to understand that Trump is a master at wagging-the-dog. Whenever the press coverage turns to his crimes the liar-in-chief does something outrageous to change the subject. For years now he’s been race-baiting  as favorite tactic, especially as it relates to the border. He also does it to motivate his ‘base.’ That isn’t working so much anymore. He needs a new distraction. Why not a war with Iran? We can’t put it past Trump. Anybody for a new ‘Gulf of Tonkin’?

President Trump denied a report from the New York Times that his top national security aides discussed a plan to send up to 120,000 troops to the Middle East in case of a fallout with Iran, adding that if they were planning to, “we’d send a hell of a lot more troops than that.”

…Bolton and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been warning of an unspecified “escalating threat” from Iran in recent weeks, after receiving intelligence from Israel about a possible Iranian plot to attack U.S. interests in the region. Trump told reporters Monday that he’d been “hearing little stories about Iran,” adding: “If they do anything, they will suffer greatly.”

Washington Senate passes bill that would keep Trump off 2020 ballot unless he releases tax returns

Now we need to get other states to go along. Such a law would encourage other Republicans to challenge Trump during the primaries:

Washington’s state Senate passed a bill this week that would drop President Trump from the state’s 2020 presidential ballot until he releases his tax returns.

The bill, which advanced Tuesday to the state’s House of Representatives, according to CBS News, would require any candidate on the ballot for president in the state to release five years of tax returns before appearing in a general or primary election.
