1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: “I want great climate”

Donald Trump is a career criminal, a racist, a malignant narcissist, a serial sexual assaulter, a pathological liar, a money launderer, and a traitor who conspired with a foreign enemy to rig his own election, so it’s not as if we need any additional reasons to disqualify him from being President of the United States. Nonetheless, he keeps giving us more reasons.



For instance, in addition to everything else that’s inherently unsuitable about him, Donald Trump’s long-addled brain has all but ceased functioning altogether. Whether the pressure of losing the midterms and having Robert Mueller breathing down his neck has finally broken him, or his signs of early-stage dementia are no longer particularly early-stage, Trump now sounds something like a drunk kindergartner.




For instance, while touring the devastating California fires yesterday, Trump was asked if seeing the devastation first hand has changed his views on climate change. His response: “No. I want great climate.” No really, that’s what he said, as relayed by NBC News. This comes after he tried to tell Fox News that the fire was somehow caused by insufficient raking, even as he rambled grotesquely about how the bodies of the victims were “burned beyond recognition” – because that’s what everyone wants to hear from their, ahem, president right now.


We know why Donald Trump won’t admit climate change is real, and why he’s pushing for forests to be chopped down instead; one of his wealthy conservative puppet masters has obviously put him up to it. The corruption is nothing new. The real trouble here is that even when Trump has been given a script to follow, he can’t even speak anymore. He seems to know his brain is fading too. When he bragged this week that he completed his Trump-Russia interview questions without any help from his attorneys, it was a desperate attempt at covering up the fact that he probably didn’t even understand the questions. This guy is cratering in the cognitive department.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s lies go down the toilet

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Matthew Whitaker made sure to go on television and attack the Trump-Russia probe so that “President” Donald Trump would see him. Whitaker was successful in his endeavor, and the preeminently unqualified Whitaker became Chief of Staff to Jeff Sessions, then was recently appointed as Acting Attorney General. There continues to be debate about whether the appointment was legitimate, and defendants around the nation already are attempting to have their charges dismissed.


Whitaker had one thing on his resume that was attractive to Trump – namely, Whitaker has been an outspoken critic of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, and made it clear he had no intention of recusing himself. Whitaker’s biggest push of his views came on August 6, 2017, just before joining the Trump administration, when he wrote an op-ed piece, “Mueller’s investigation of Trump is going too far.”

On various outlets on Sunday, Trump opened his mouth – which means of course lies are coming. Today’s lies have to do with his lack of knowledge of Whitaker’s views. On an interview for Fox, Trump had the following exchange with Chris Wallace:

WALLACE: Did you know, before you appointed him, that he had that record and was so critical of Robert Mueller —


TRUMP: I did not know that. I did not know he took views on the Mueller investigation as such.


WALLACE: And when you found that out?
TRUMP: I don’t think it had any effect. If you look at those statements those statements that can — they really can be viewed either way, but I don’t think it will have any impact —



WALLACE: Well, he said there’s no collusion, he says–
TRUMP: Chris, I’ll tell you what–



WALLACE: –he said you can starve the investigation.




TRUMP: He’s right. What do you do when a person’s right? There is no collusion. He happened to be right. I mean, he said it. So if he said there is collusion, I’m supposed to be taking somebody that says there is? Because then I wouldn’t take him for two reasons, but the number one reason is the fact that he would have been wrong. If he said that there’s no collusion, he’s right.


Donald Trump then said he would not interfere if Whitaker ended the investigation, and then confirmed in a different discussion that he would not sit down with Mueller for an interview. Trump’s denial of knowing what Whitaker’s views are is more proverbial BS, but this is a day ending in y – so we know Trump is lying as always.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: How Florida rigged the election this time

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Back in 2016, the election went about as expected nationwide, except for four key swing states, where the results were shocking, nonsensical, perfectly mathematically convenient for one party. Here in 2018, the election once again went about as expected across the nation, except in Florida, where the results were once against shocking, nonsensical, perfectly mathematically convenient for one party. So what just happened?


It’s not difficult to figure out that in 2016, the systemic and criminal collusion between the Donald Trump campaign, the Russian government, Russian hackers, and WikiLeaks resulted in the outcome in those four key swing states being altered. How exactly did hackers pull it off? That’s for Robert Mueller to ultimately determine, but the Senate Intel Committee has already pointed to Russian hackers deleting voter registrations ahead of election day, thus preventing a number of registered Democrats from being able to cast their votes. All that aside, there is no known evidence that the Russians were involved in altering the outcome of the 2018 elections.

For one thing, the results this time were largely what we expected across the nation. Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, whose results were clearly altered by the Trump-Russia plot in 2016, all suddenly snapped back to normal and expected results in 2018. We did see Republican cheating around the nation, but it was fairly straightforward, and the perpetrators didn’t try to hide it. Kris Kobach cheated in Kansas and still lost. Brian Kemp cheated in Georgia and won, but the final polling averages suggested he was going to win anyway. North Dakota cheated against Native Americans, but they found a way to vote anyway.

The upshot is that all of these various forms of cheating in 2018, whether they worked or not, are easily explainable. Then there’s Florida. The final polling averages called for a clear victory by Andrew Gillum, and a more narrow victory for Bill Nelson. Yet when it was all said and done, they both lost, and Gillum somehow lost by a significantly larger margin than Nelson. The results in these two races in Florida make no mathematical sense, and they’re arguably the only notable election results in the nation that make no sense.

Of course we can point to a number of bizarre things in Florida in 2018. For instance, the ballot in Democratic stronghold Broward County was designed in a ridiculous manner which caused a number of voters to miss the Bill Nelson vs Rick Scott race entirely. Is this level of honest incompetence even possible? The county supervisor of elections is a Democrat, but she was originally appointed by then-Governor Jeb Bush, a Republican – and we all recall Jeb having meddled in the 2000 presidential election on his brother’s behalf.


But even that Broward ballot problem doesn’t fully explain the results. It may have taken ten thousand or more votes away from Bill Nelson, costing him the Senate election. But that would mean that Nelson won and Gillum lost – a nearly impossible result when you look at the polling averages in these two races. If Broward explains how Nelson was robbed, how was Gillum robbed?


There are some hints. For instance, as Andrew Gillum’s Republican opponent Ron DeSantis fell further behind in the polls in the final weeks of the race, he made the extremely unusual move of canceling all his interviews. Yes, he was terrible at giving interviews. But when you’re falling behind that close to election day, you do every interview that comes your way and take your chances, because you have to try to shake things up. Instead, DeSantis spent the whole time making interview decisions that a candidate would only make if they were pretty sure they were going to win by sitting tight.




Then there’s the fact that the often verbally reckless DeSantis all but disappeared after election day, allowing Donald Trump and Rick Scott – who was both the outgoing Governor and the Republican candidate for Senate – to do all the talking. DeSantis was fighting for his political life during the counting and recounting, but he had nothing to say? What did Trump and Scott say to DeSantis to make him comfortable enough to stay quiet?


The bottom line is that of all the states involved in 2016 Trump-Russia election cheating, Florida was the only one that once again cheated in 2018. And of all the states that did try their hand at blatant Republican cheating in 2018, Florida is the only one whose election results are unexplainable. The common thread in 2016 and 2018: Florida Governor Rick Scott, whom Trump just shoehorned into the Senate, and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, whom Trump is now considering for U.S. Attorney General. Funny how that works.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: Yes, the 2016 election was rigged – and we’re getting closer to proving it

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

Days after the 2016 election, Palmer Report made the mathematical argument that the election results in four states – Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – had rather obviously been rigged. It wasn’t that Donald Trump won; it was how he won. I acknowledged that I had no evidence of who altered the results, or how they did it, but the math alone demonstrated that the results were essentially not organically possible. At the time, pundits on the left and right responded by calling me a “conspiracy theorist” and worse. But a funny thing is now happening.


In the 2018 midterm elections we’ve seen various attempts at rigging the results. For instance, Brian Kemp and Kris Kobach each rigged things on their own behalf (through suppression and other tactics); only Kemp was successful. In addition, the North Dakota GOP tried to rig the vote against Native Americans, and well, Florida turned out to be Florida. But in each of these instances, we’ve seen the mainstream media acknowledge that attempts were made at rigging the results.


Interestingly, these same mainstream media outlets are largely still refusing to even allow for the possibility that the 2016 election was rigged in Donald Trump’s favor, and that he didn’t actually win. They talk openly about Trump-Russia collusion, but never acknowledge the logical result of that collusion. They’ll have to explain someday why they’ve spent the past two years ignoring the obvious, even while floating implausible theories about how Trump somehow magically won those four states. The thing is, we’re getting very close to learning from Robert Mueller just how Trump and Russia altered the the 2016 election result. In fact we already have a big piece of it from the Senate.


Earlier this year the Senate Intelligence Committee quietly issued a bipartisan statement confirming that Russian hackers gained access to the voter registration databases in key states ahead of election day, and that the hackers specifically had the ability to delete existing voter registrations. All they had to do was delete the entries for a fraction of Democrats in each precinct, meaning they wouldn’t be able to vote when they showed up. Even provisional ballots wouldn’t end up counting, because they weren’t in the registration database.




We’re getting close to the answer. Earlier this year New York Magazine reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was specifically investigating vote rigging in at least some of the suspicious swing states in question. We expect he’ll expose what the Senate has already hinted at: that the Russian hackers deleted targeted registrations, thus effectively rigging the vote totals before voting even began.


Mueller will expose that not only did Donald Trump not really win the 2016 election, he and his campaign committed a form of treason by conspiring with the Russians to rig the results. The mainstream media surely knows by now that this is coming. It’s not clear why they’re still declining to acknowledge it. Perhaps they feel they’re in too deep, after having spent the past two years refusing to even acknowledge the possibility, and floating so many silly narratives about “economic anxiety” instead. In any case, Trump was never elected president – period – and history will end up writing as much. If only the pundits hadn’t tried to shout me down two years ago.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (198 sites): Palmer Report: You’d better believe Robert Mueller is investigating Anthony Kennedy’s connection to Trump-Russia

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Earlier, Palmer Report pulled together all the confirmed pieces of the puzzle when it comes to Donald Trump, Russia, Deutsche Bank, and retiring Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. We argued that while the mountain of circumstantial evidence doesn’t prove anything, it’s the kind of situation that calls for a criminal investigation. In response, several readers asked us if we had any way of getting our article to Special Counsel Robert Mueller. We can do you one better.



Based on the pattern we’ve watched play out with Robert Mueller over the past year, we can virtually guarantee you that one of two scenarios is true. Either Mueller and his team began investigating the Trump-Kennedy-Russia connection the minute it showed up in newspaper headlines last week, or Mueller and his team already knew about it and their investigation into it is well underway. How can we be so sure?




No, we don’t have some secret backchannel to Robert Mueller. We’ve simply observed how he operates. Whenever the media exposes some new aspect of the Trump-Russia scandal, we usually later learn that Mueller knew about it before the media did. Even in the instances where Mueller doesn’t have something first, we’ve seen that he’s leaving absolutely no stone unturned. The Trump-Russia meeting in the Seychelles? Check. Roger Stone’s communications with WikiLeaks? Check. Every credibly reported aspect of the scandal, big or small, no matter who’s involved, ends up landing on Mueller’s radar eventually.


We’re looking at a situation where a Supreme Court Justice’s son used his position at a major bank to steer absurdly inappropriate loans to Donald Trump, at the same time that bank just happened to be laundering billions of dollars of Russian money into the hands of clients in the city where Trump lived, even as Russia was working to get Trump elected President, and then that same Justice stepped down at just the right time to help Trump. You’d better believe Robert Mueller is looking into something that obvious and ominous – and if it is indeed a criminal matter, he’ll pursue it and expose it.
