Trump brags he’s using North Korea anti-media propaganda techniques in wandering South Carolina speech

Published

on

President Donald Trump regaled North Korea and the summit he participated in with dictator Kim Jong-un during his South Carolina rally Monday.

“South Korea. Remember, they came over from South Korea. They stopped. North Korea, South Korea. The Olympics. It started with the Olympics,” rambled Trump. “When chairman Kim said we want to go to the Olympics. I said that’s nice. That’s a big difference from the dialogue we had. They want to go to the Olympics. The Olympics would have been a massive failure and turned out to be a success. President moon of South Korea gives us the credit.”

He went on to say that Olympic tickets weren’t selling before the United States announced it was getting involved in talks.

“They were not selling,” he said. “People didn’t want to be nuked in a stadium as they watched the opening ceremony. They didn’t want to be watching the opening ceremonies at the same time and looking up at the skies. How long will this last? They were not exactly selling tickets. The minute that happened — he said he would like to be part of the Olympics out of nowhere. The minute that happened, they became a fantastic success. A great Olympics. Great Olympics.”

He went on to praise Kim, saying that the two had “good chemistry.”

“Not that easy. But they took down signs. Anti-United States signs all over North Korea. They’re down. They came down. Anti-U.S. signs,” Trump said. “Like I put up anti-media signs all over the place. You’re worse than I am. No, we just want honesty.”

Trump wants to wriggle out of impeachment by suing ‘everybody’ who makes him angry

Published

President Donald Trump wants to sue his way out of impeachment, just like he got himself out of jams before he entered the White House.

The president has been obsessed with undercover recordings by the right-wing Project Veritas outfit that misleadingly suggests an anti-Trump conspiracy by CNN president Jeff Zucker, and he has been privately ranting for days about the audio and video recordings, reported The Daily Beast.

Donald Trump’s big short: Is the president profiting off the market chaos he creates?

Published

on

Back in early 2018, I noticed something hinky about the confluence of Donald Trump’s blurts about his trade war with the movement of the stock market. As I wrote in this space back in August, I believe Trump or people close to Trump might be profiting off the volatility of the markets ever since the president first declared a trade war against our allies and frenemies alike.

Since the passage of the 2009 stimulus, and with the exception of 2015, the markets have been mostly climbing steadily, in a relatively smooth upward slope. This ascending trajectory continued through the first year of Trump’s presidency until suddenly we began to observe harrowing single-day declines — volatility in the form of precipitous collapses of as much as 1,175 points in the Dow.

Trump Jr. and McGahn didn’t testify before the Mueller grand jury — and a federal judge wants to know why

Published

on

During the Russia investigation, former special counsel Robert Mueller sought testimony from a long list of people. But according to a court filing on Sunday, two people who Mueller did not force to testify before a grand jury were Donald Trump Jr. and former White House Counsel Don McGahn. And U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell wants to know why.

The court filing on Sunday, according to The Week, was in response to a ruling Howell made on Thursday — when Howell asserted that the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) was withholding too much information from the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York. The House Judiciary Committee, The Week’s Peter Weber reports, has been “wrangling” with DOJ over the evidence that Mueller obtained during his lengthy investigation.
