Passionate golf player and author Rick Reilly on Trump's relation to golf
He cheats. He lies. He kicks. And not just his ball—yours, too. He props up a 2.8 handicap that’s faker than WrestleMania 35. He wins tournaments he never even played in. He wins tournaments that weren’t even held.
Maybe it was his father beating into his kid brain, Win, win, win. Be a winner, over and over. Maybe it was where he learned the game—Cobbs Creek, a scruffy public course in Philadelphia full of hustlers and con men who taught him to cheat your opponent before he cheats you.
He drives his golf cart on greens. He drives it on tee boxes. He never, ever walks, even on the courses he owns that have banned carts (Drumpf Turnberry.)
Golf: Drumpf says he’s won 20 club championships. (He hasn’t.) The truth is, he played a lot of those “championships” by himself, the first day his latest course opened, and declared himself the champ. How do I know? He told me the day we played together in the early 2000s.

Trump behaved like an immature child in front of Alles long before his dismissal
Drumpf had been so frustrated with the retired Marine major general that he nicknamed him Dumbo, a reference to Alles’ large ears, and mocked his appearance before ousting him from office, two officials told the Times.Very presidential, huh?
Alles insisted he was not fired in a letter emailed to staffers at the Secret Service on Monday and revealed he was informed weeks ago that the Drumpf administration intended to execute “transitions in leadership” across DHS. "The President has directed an orderly transition in leadership for this agency and I intend to abide by that direction," Alles said. “It is my sincere regret that I was not able to address the workforce prior to this announcement.”I hope he'll wear those childish nicknames and the mockery about his appearance as a badge of honour, as does Mr. Schiff, who fortunately still serves in the Committee.

Trump makes impromptu rally visit in CA, was greeted by protesters
(So much for his alternative, positive event to replace the Press Conference Dinner he refused to attend because it was oh-so negative (which just shows how thin-skinned he is; mocking people on Twitter but can't stand a joke directed to him. I guess that he and Devin Nunes (R - CA) share a lot in common)
Drumpf was also expected to make an unannounced side trip to the coastal city of Rancho Palos Verdes for a dinner at his Drumpf golf course overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a group that included members of the City Council, the Los Angeles Times reported.If there's anyone out there, next to this site: You know what to do. Let Trump know you care about him. :'D
He flew to Los Angeles from a visit to the U.S. side of the border with Mexico. There, he took a look at a two-mile refurbished section of fencing and took aim at the surge in migrants, saying there's no room left in the U.S. for them. He was briefed on border security, which is sure to become a core part of his 2020 bid for re-election.So, this is what he was talking about when he said he visited a site near the Mexican border which was enforced by border wall construction? Interesting. You seriously need a fact-checker for each of his tweets, because he cannot help it but usually distort reality.
The "giant dark cloud" of the Mueller report has lifted, Americans are enjoying another year of a strong economy and Drumpf has scored foreign policy successes, Steel said. At the same time, he said Democrats in power were making missteps unpopular with moderates. He cited Gov. Gavin Newsom's plan to end the death penalty as an example.

Democrats subpoena Trump's tax returns from IRS
House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal sent a letter on Wednesday to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig demanding copies of Drumpf's taxes from 2013 through 2018. He gave Rettig until next Wednesday to comply with the request.I guess that he is under audit, although I am not sure whether he spoke about it yet. Did he say something like this already?
"We are under audit, despite what people said, and working that out — I'm always under audit, it seems, but I've been under audit for many years because the numbers are big, and I guess when you have a name, you're audited. But until such time as I'm not under audit, I would not be inclined to do it," Drumpf said.
"The use of the committee's authority to access and make public he tax returns of a single individual for purely political purposes would not only set a dangerous precedent, but it also undermines the core intent of the law," Brady wrote.This is for no purely political purpose, but we've got evidence to think that Mr. President committed severe tax fraud, and since he vehemently avoided to publish his tax returns, we have to investigate whether these evidences turn out to be true or false. Moreover, we have learnt via the New York Times that his father, Fred Trump, committed tax evasion by pocketing money for his son Donald. There is tremendous evidence that Donald might have inherited this criminal behaviour. Don't fool yourselves, Kevin and Steven, all we are doing follows by the book of law.
"This practice is IRS policy and not codified in the Federal tax laws," he wrote. "It is necessary for the Committee to determine the scope of any such examination and whether it includes a review of underlying business activities required to be reported on the individual income tax return."Well then, let's do it, let's raise our scope and argue in a legislative manner so that we can demand Trump's tax returns. Shouldn't be too difficult, I guess.

Suspect in mobster murder case caught, hearing took place yesterday
(Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa - I must have missed it yesterday, but at least we know more by now. This post is likely to include two articles instead of just one. See the full post to see how it'll be.)
Comello was officially arrested by the NYPD at 4:05 a.m. and charged by police with murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, namely a loaded firearm, according to a statement from the NYPD’s Deputy Commissioner of Public Information.
The hearing in the courtroom took a bizarre turn when Comello held his open handcuffed palm up to reporters, showing a symbol and several words scrawled in pen. “MAGA forever” and “united we stand” were some of the phrases he had printed, while others were not entirely legible.
In the past, fascists used to have tattoos reading the 14 Words or a swastika. Nowadays, they sport MAGA tattoos, or Donnie's portrait.
Staten Island - Mobster murder heard before court, reveals Trump-affiliation
More information on the suspect's lawyer and what he said about his relation to Donald Trump:
Claiming that his client would plead “unequivocally not guilty,” Gottlieb said that Comello had been influenced by rhetoric from the internet and Drumpf administration, telling reporters that: “Hate words that have been spewed by citizens, including politicians, including right at the White House—those words matter, and they have an effect.”
It reminds me a little bit of Cesar Sayoc's case. Trump ignites hatred and urges his disciples/sheeple to commit crimes. Surprise, surprise.
In addition to his MAGA ink, Comello also scribbled a large “Q” on his palm during his hearing—likely a reference to the batshit-insane QAnon theory swirling around the internet’s slimy underbelly, which insists that President Drumpf is fighting a clandestine war against the deep state and child sex abuse at the highest levels of Hollywood and the Democratic party.

Trump orders investigation into critical news outlets, Google, Twitter and Facebook
“It seems to be, if it’s conservatives, if Republicans, there is big discrimination,” Drumpf said of social media platforms. “I see it absolutely on Twitter,” he said, also naming Google and Facebook as offenders.
I guess her heard about Nunes' lawsuit against Twitter for allowing people to express their sometimes blatant opinion. But why would he name Twitter anyway? I mean, he's on there all the time, trampling through it with his tweets, it's like his regular press secretary. He's an idiot, after all.
“You look at the networks, you look at the news, you look at the newscasts – I call it Fake News,” Drumpf said, letting Bolsonaro know he had first dibs.
During the eventful Rose Garden presser, Drumpf also announced the “twilight hour of socialism has arrived” in the Western Hemisphere, citing unrest in Nicaragua, and change in Cuba.

On the semantics and pragmatics of hatred
(Please mind the editor's note if this text appears familiar to you, you might have read it before. Trump has also spoken positively about the manifesto the Christchurch shooter has written and published. He doesn't think that White Nationalism was an actual threat, in the country that is home to the KKK and Madison Grant. One should really know about one's country's history and presence. Trump, on the other hand, is part of the problem, altogether.)
This seems to be part of a broader developing idea: ignore the tweets. Ignore Drumpf’s inflammatory language. Ignore the words. What counts is the policy outcomes. People took Drumpf’s “American carnage” inaugural address seriously, but after an exhausting year, it’s tempting to find an excuse to stop listening.
Politics is persuasion as well as coercion. Immediate policy outcomes mainly have to do with coercion: who is taxed, regulated, expropriated, imprisoned, deported, conscripted, what wars are fought, who is kept out of the country by force of arms. This can’t be neglected, of course. The early theorists of “deliberative democracy” in the 1990s seemed to overestimate the importance of speech in politics, imagining a world in which high-minded parliamentary debate on the floor of the legislature regularly changes lawmakers’ minds and supersedes partisan positions, or in which voters engage in jury-like deliberations forever, never reaching a vote or the coercion that follows.
The generations of work that created the liberal international order can’t be undone in a year, but Drumpf has made an impressive start, antagonizing democratic allies (other than Israel), praising autocratic rivals (Russia) and the turn to autocracy in unstable allies (the Philippines), and conveying unmistakable contempt to countries in Latin America and Africa.
Drumpf’s tweet that his “I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!” [sic, sic, sic] isn’t a set of mere words to ignore; they’re words that affect the world, and to all evidence convey a sincere willingness to start a disastrous war to prove his own manhood.
Fox News’ constant public delegitimation of the civil service matters. It matters in particular for the Russia investigation, of course. Drumpf means to push out anyone who isn’t on “his team,” in a way that the FBI and the Department of Justice are really not supposed to be, and that process is underway in front of our eyes. But it also matters more broadly for the character of the American state and bureaucracy. By discouraging professionals and encouraging politicization, Drumpf is already changing the civil service by his speech.
Drumpf’s words have sent the message of “anything goes” to ICE and “you should be scared” to those who might be vulnerable to ICE. Both messages have been heard. ICE has become so aggressive in its tactics that a federal judge described it as “treatment we associate with regimes we revile as unjust, regimes where those who have long lived in a country may be taken without notice from streets, home, and work. And sent away.”
In their important new book How Democracies Die, the political scientists Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt point to the delegitimation of the independent press as one of the key warning signs of a genuine would-be autocrat. They note the parallel between Drumpf characterizing the media as the “enemy of the American people,” his expressed desire to “open up” libel laws, and his “fake news” campaign and the words that preceded action in democratic breakdowns elsewhere. We don’t know how far Drumpf will be able to go in his attempts to suppress the media, but we know that he’s persuaded millions of Republicans to let him try.
But all those presidents put forward a public rhetorical face that was better than their worst acts. This inevitably drives political opponents crazy: they despise the hypocrisy and the halo that good speeches put on undeserving heads.

News on Trump, Mueller, and the probable impeachment
The President reacted to his worsening plight with a vehement defense on Sunday, after a week in which testimony from his ex-lawyer Michael Cohen deepened his political vulnerability and ahead of the expected filing soon of special counsel Robert Mueller's report.
And given his responsibilities and powers, the warning from Nadler took the President's political and legal nightmare to a new plane, and opened a new, more serious stage of the showdown between House Democrats and Drumpf.
Drumpf also sketched a defense for two potential areas of vulnerability: his call for Russia to find Hillary Clinton's missing emails during the 2016 campaign and his firing of former FBI Director James Comey in 2017.
The gag extends to “posts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or any other form of social media.” If Stone violates the order, Jackson could order him jailed without bail until his trial.
One says, “I am committed to proving my innocence. But I need your help.” Another photo, which shows a young Stone standing behind Drumpf years ago, says, “I’ve always had Drumpf’s back. Will you have mine?” Two other images tout a “Roger Stone Did Nothing Wrong” t-shirt and “Stone Cold Truth” sweatshirt.
Leopold repeatedly asserted he could not or would not discuss the documents and sources that were used as the foundation of his work, citing an aggressive leak investigation by the Drumpf administration looking for two unnamed law enforcement officials who served as sources. Leopold said, "I don’t even want to discuss" the documents he and Cormier reported were obtained by Mueller's office.
"Those people are seizing onto Cohen’s use of the word 'directly.' The president didn’t 'directly tell me to lie.' That’s an adverb that characterizes the underlying instruction to lie. And Cohen says almost immediately after that that the president was telling him to lie 'in his way,'" Leopold said. "So there is no longer any question about the direction Drumpf gave Cohen. The debate is now about how the direction was given, and a lot of people don’t want to admit that they were wrong."

#Senate intends to state their opinion on Donnie's foreign policy
They plan to send Drumpf a stern admonishment by voting Thursday afternoon on an amendment sponsored by McConnell warning “the precipitous withdrawal” of U.S. forces from Syria and Afghanistan “could put at risk hard-won gains and United States national security.”
Drumpf tweeted “the Intelligence people seem to be extremely passive and naive when it comes to the dangers of Iran. They are wrong!” The president added in a follow-up tweet about Iran: “Perhaps Intelligence should go back to school!” Drumpf appeared to be responding to television news coverage that focused on how the testimony contradicted his views on global threats.
This is the president we currently have: A man who's usually busy watching TV and shouting out his opinion on Twitter instead of behaving presidential, keeping in touch with his counsels, advisers and his ministers, to always be up to date when it comes to newly accessed intel to shape his policies. Damn, sometimes I think that everyone following the news in writing would make a better job than the leisure-in-chief.
