Trump weaponizes the presidency after impeachment victory


Trump sent a strong signal of Washington's new power realities Friday by ignoring pleas from the Republican senators who acquitted him and who had hoped to protect those who testified against him.

Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, a national security council Ukraine specialist and his brother Yevgeny, a national security lawyer who was not involved in the Ukraine controversy, were sent back to the Pentagon. US ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who effectively implicated Trump in a quid pro quo in colorful House testimony, was also sent packing. The two had been quietly planning exits of their own, three sources told CNN's Kaitlan Collins, but according to a person familiar with Trump's thinking, although he had been advised to simply let them leave to avoid the criticism of firing impeachment witnesses, he didn't want them to go quietly.

It was also during the campaign that Trump first declared that his main strategy to combat the Islamic State and militancy in the Middle East would be to take their oil. “I would knock out the source of their wealth, the primary sources of their wealth, which is oil. And in order to do that, you would have to put boots on the ground. I would knock the hell out of them but I’d put a ring around it and I’d take the oil for our country,” he told MSNBC. Taking oil would become a persistent theme, and undercut America’s ability to form counterterrorism and other security partnership because Trump’s statements provided fodder for political oppositions across the Middle East to raise questions and populist anger against any agreement which would bring American forces into the region. All of this might have been ignored, however, had it not been for the tone-deaf decision to redeploy U.S. forces around Syrian oil fields. Proponents of the decision say that it was the only argument that could convince Trump to keep forces in Syria. The problem is that the image of U.S. Humvees parked in front of oil derricks affirms decades of “war-for-oil” conspiracies that permeate the Middle East and broader Islamic world and will, in the long-term, do more harm to the United States.

A new Gallup poll showed President Donald Trump with a positive approval rating for the first time ever, with the number of Americans approving of his job performance just about trumping those who disapprove - (pun very much intended).

The poll, which was released on Thursday, found that 49% of Americans approved of the job that Trump is doing, the same as a poll from last month. However, that number is up 5 percentage points from a poll taken in early January.

For the first time ever, that figure is tops the 48% of citizens who think the opposite, with the remaining 3% unable to or choosing not to answer.

"Trump’s elevated job approval rating comes at a time when Americans are increasingly positive about the state of the nation,” Gallup said in a statement.

Trump is looking good for getting re-elected.

Will he retain Mike Pence as VP if/when he gets re-elected?

I'd say he will get re-elected - because the Democrats are so utterly hopeless. But Trump is a very weak minded individual, with very little sense of right or wrong.

On that subject.
One stellar reason to dump the moron in here.
Won't have the least bearing on anything but it's dreadful.

More of a plague on all political life in the US. Gets to the point of the sheer vile fraud.

At the boundary of Good Taste. Apparently.
It was the [REDACTED] what did it.

RussiaGate conspiracies have filled Irish, as much if not more than the rest of the West's MSM, airwaves for a couple of years but as they have fallen to pieces the real culprits emerge. IT WAS THE [REDACTED]! Interestingly a Google search returns plenty of mentions of this in Israeli media but feck all from US or Irish or anywhere else

An interesting snippet
One entry dated “on or about August 12, 2016,” reads: “[NAME REDACTED] messaged STONE, ‘Roger, hello from Jerusalem. Any progress? He is going to be defeated [sic] unless we intervene. We have critical intell. The key is in your hands! Back in the US next week. How is your Pneumonia? Thank you. [REDACTED] STONE replied, ‘I am well. Matters complicated. Pondering. R., [REDACTED] Thank You.’”
