1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s goon squad is trying to hurry up and finish the job

  •

This week National Security Adviser John Bolton began making such brazen moves to try to start a war with Iran, even a frustrated Donald Trump leaked his frustration about it to the media. This week the Trump regime – no doubt coming from Stephen Miller – leaked that it’s about to round up undocumented immigrants on such a huge scale, the move would set off massive immediate backlash nationwide.



There are other examples. The question is why so many of Donald Trump’s top people have each suddenly decided to make a mad dash toward their own perverse fantasy – Bolton obliterating Iran, Miller making America whiter – and why they’re moving with such reckless haste. If they simply think Trump is now unstoppable, it would give them at least a year and a half to move forward in the kind of strategic fashion with the strongest chance of success. Instead, they’re all racing toward their goal is if the clock were in danger of soon ticking down to zero on them.




Trump’s allies outside the White House also suddenly seem to be racing against the clock. This week a number of pro-Trump states have frantically passed laws banning abortion to varying degrees, with the goal of putting the issue in front of the Supreme Court, in the faint hope that it’ll result in Roe v. Wade being overturned. Of course the more likely outcome is that these laws will be struck down, and it’ll put an end to the incremental state-level shadow banning of abortion. It’s a last minute hail mary, which is weird, considering they could have taken a more methodical approach with a higher chance of success.


It’s becoming clear that Donald Trump’s henchmen and allies have recently decided they need to hurry up chase their own deranged fantasies as fast as they can. The question is why. Are they simply too ginned up to realize that they’re moving too hastily? Or have they looked at Trump’s worsening criminal scandals and decided that they may not have much more time to work with? Even if Trump isn’t ousted, there’s a threshold where the scandals and investigations will prevent the Trump regime from being able to do anything but play defense. We’re not there yet – but some of Trump’s own people seem to think we’re coming up on it soon.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Down goes William Barr

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Attorney General Bill Barr looks like he’s seen a ghost, and he has. It’s the ghost of his freedom. Not even Fox News can soften the landing his reputation is taking on those sharp, obstruction rocks. After Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s filing revealed Michael Flynn witnessed Trump & Co. committing various crimes, (and there are even tapes!), the story for Barr can only get worse. For Mueller, the story and the filings are just getting started.



Flynn was always Trump’s Achilles heel. The reason we know this is Trump has never, ever criticized him. Fear paralyzes him around Flynn, for some reason that is sure to come out. Now Trump is twisting the story to make himself the victim, but President Obama warned him about Flynn, and Trump went ahead with appointing Flynn anyway. He also attempted to protect Flynn from the FBI. Even now, Trump still has yet to attack Flynn.




Meanwhile, Bill Barr is in trouble. Mueller’s current document says Flynn alerted them to obstructive acts committed by “persons connected to the Administration or Congress.” One of Trump’s lawyers left a voicemail for Flynn’s attorney, laughably inquiring about the investigation as a matter of “national security.” Mueller’s prosecutors say Flynn described conversations among senior Trump campaign officials about reaching out to WikiLeaks to help the campaign. Every time you see “WikiLeaks,” please know you are reading “GRU” – Russian military intelligence. That’s definitely a matter of national security right there, but not the kind Barr is thinking of.


Bill Barr has sold his soul, his reputation and his freedom to Donald Trump – not to help this country but to help white male Republicans stay in power against a wave of women and minorities. Barr scammed the American public in order to be confirmed as Attorney General in order to perform as Trump’s handmaiden. While he is still technically overseeing Mueller in the Department of Justice, Mueller is now doing a brilliant dodge to get the info out there. There is more to come. This slope just keeps getting slipperier, and Bill Barr is headed down this obstruction hill on an unstoppable sled.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump goes completely off the rails during speech and has profane meltdown

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


Donald Trump’s criminal scandals are growing worse for him by the hour, this time thanks to the revelation that Michael Flynn sold him out to Robert Mueller. Trump is trying to distract us all by threatening to invade Iran as a distraction from his scandals, but because the whole thing is a poorly thought out con game, even his attempt at a distraction is falling apart. With everything going wrong for him, let’s just say that Trump isn’t exactly taking it well today.



Trump was supposed to give a speech today to a group of realtors. You can’t get any more nonpartisan or noncontroversial than that, right? The trouble is, Trump’s mind was elsewhere. In the middle of the speech, Trump went off script and threw a fit about the recent major newspaper reports of conflict between him and his National Security Adviser John Bolton over Iran. These reports have come from within Trump’s own White House, so obviously the names of the sources can’t be printed – but when the New York Times or the Washington Post says it has a reliable inside source, that’s a pretty good indicator that it does indeed have such a source.




Just not in Trump’s delusional mind. He decided that, because he doesn’t like what his own people are publicly revealing about his failures, these inside sources must somehow not exist. During his speech today, he began ranting that “There is no source. The person doesn’t exist. The person’s not alive. It’s bullshit, OK? It’s bullshit.” Debates about the appropriateness of the President of the United States using profanity aside, this meltdown makes clear that Trump has lost it – even by his low standards.


Donald Trump clearly doesn’t think any of this is going well for him. Not the Michael Flynn bombshell, not the Iran distraction, none of it. When you’re going off script and ranting like that in public, it’s because you know you’ve lost control of the narrative, and because you know you’re just plain losing, period. The question now is what Trump will or won’t do in response to how badly things are spiraling out of control for him.

1. Trump from Michael_Novakhov (197 sites): Palmer Report: Donald Trump and William Barr are spiraling out of control

  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


“President” Donald Trump and his Attorney General William “Fu” Barr are both insisting that the Trump campaign was spied upon by the federal government, and Barr has appointed a United States Attorney to examine the origins of the Russia investigation and determine if the surveillance of the Trump campaign was “lawful and appropriate.” Barr on Friday is talking about changes to Department of Justice rules.



What is terrifying and chilling is that Barr’s intended beneficiary of all of this action is Trump, who tweeted this morning: “My Campaign for President was conclusively spied on. Nothing like this has ever happened in American Politics. A really bad situation. TREASON means long jail sentences, and this was TREASON!”




Mimi Rocah, a former federal prosecutor and pretty rational and very smart person, tweeted her reaction to this. She noted:
“First I was outraged at these kinds of tweets-how could a POTUS talk like this? After a while, I rolled my eyes & shrugged them off as meaningless & repetitive nonsense. Now, especially because of Barr, this gives me chills & terrifies me. Nothing seems inconceivable anymore.”


She has a right to be concerned. We all should be. We are in dangerous times, and Barr’s actions and Trump’s words suggest that someone will be punished for exposing Trump’s crimes. Every sentence in Trump’s tweet is false and a lie. But the rhetoric is dangerous, and with Barr seemingly out to protect only Trump, and damn the nation and rule of law, we are in a situation that is “FuBarr.”
