Alt-America and English Uprising review Trump, Brexit and the far right

Both David Neiwerts book on the US radical right and Paul Stockers on Brexit argue that economic factors take second place in explaining populismDonald Trump is US president because just under 80,000 people in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin flipped those states his way. Many of his extra voters were working-class white men who had voted for Obama in 2012 and switched because of Trumps pledge to bring jobs back to the rust belt. They may not have liked Obamas liberal policies on gay people and guns, but for them the big issue remained the economy.But Trump would not have won without the support of three other groups: his gains in suburban and rural counties outweighed Hillary Clintons success in the big cities; despite the reservations of the Republican establishment about his candidacy, Trump retained the partys base, particularly among religious voters (the three times married pussy-grabber won more than 80% of white evangelicals); and he energised a movement of supporters that gained him the Republican nomination, without which he wouldnt have got any votes at all.Continue reading…

Palmer Report: Donald Trump tips off that he knows Robert Mueller is going to get him on financial crimes

Anyone who has been paying close attention has long known that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Donald Trump for everything from obstruction of justice to conspiring with the Russians to rig the election. The bigger question has been whether Mueller would also investigate Trump’s long history of criminal financial deals. As per usual, Mueller has given no hint. However, Trump tipped off today that he knows Mueller is coming for his finances.Today, the Trump Organization officially pulled the plug on the Trump Soho hotel, announcing that it’s severing its financial relationship with the hotel, and that the “Trump” name will quickly be removed from the property. This is far from the first time in which Trump has walked away from an underperforming property. But this one is different. Of all the shady business deals Trump and his family have made over the decades, Trump Soho might be the dirtiest. It was arranged through a man named Felix Sater, who had been convicted for among other crimes money laundering in relation to the Russian mafia.It’s not difficult to see where this is going. Donald Trump is walking away from Trump Soho because he (or one of his kids or handlers, or whoever is calling the shots at this point) has figured out that the property is one of his greatest criminal liabilities. This comes just days after Trump announced that he’s shutting down his legally-troubled charitable foundation. That’s not a coincidence, and it’s far from the last shady financial venture that Trump will lop off from his empire as he tries to insulate himself from what he knows is coming.The trouble for Donald Trump: by now it’s too late. This is the equivalent of a speeder slowing down afterbeing spotted by the police car. Not only did Trump just tip off that he knows Robert Mueller is investigating his financial crimes, he also tipped off that he thinks Mueller is going to get him for it.The post Donald Trump tips off that he knows Robert Mueller is going to get him on financial crimesappeared first on Palmer Report.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump tells Ivanka and Jared Kushner to move back to New York

This summer, shortly after it was first revealed that Jared Kushner had secretly met with the Russian Ambassador and the head of a Russian bank during the transition period, he and Ivanka Trump floated a story to the press indicating that they had been considering moving back to New York anyway. That never did happen. But now the idea of them moving back home is being floated again and this time it’s coming from Donald Trump.Donald Trump and his allies are now clearly trying to pin the firing of FBI Director James Comey on Jared Kushner. Several people close to Trump are now telling the media that they witnessed Kushner pushing Trump to fire Comey in the hope of making the Trump-Russia investigation go away, which would constitute obstruction of justice. But the real bombshell is buried in the very last paragraph of a new Vanity Fair profile (link), which reveals that Trump wants his daughter and son-in-law to leave the White House and move back home.Even more notably, Kushner’s camp is now making sure the media knows that Trump is telling him and Ivanka to go home. Trump is telling Jared and Ivanka that they should abandon the White House because their reputations are “being damaged by negative press,” according to that same Vanity Fair profile. If Trump has merely been bluffing them on this, it appears Kushner is now calling that bluff.So what now? Donald Trump is clearly trying to scapegoat Jared Kushner in the hope of protecting himself from obstruction of justice charges. Kushner has reportedly been cooperating with Special Counsel Robert Mueller by giving him documents relating Comey’s firing. Now we know that Trump is telling Jared (and Ivanka) to get out of his White House and move back to New York, and Jared is running to the press to tattle on him for it. Will they stay or will they go? This might be the worst episode of Family Feud ever, and as the criminal probe continues, it’s just getting started.The post Donald Trump tells Ivanka and Jared Kushner to move back to New York appeared first on Palmer Report.
