Trump Horror, Day 19: Attacks Court: “I Understand Things. I Comprehend Very Well, Better Than Almost Anybody”

Arrogant braggart attacks justice system
Politics • Views: 36,061

Our Narcissist in Chief spoke to the National Sheriffs’ Association’s winter meeting this morning and made a bizarre, delusional boast, yet another in a long line of crazed statements: “I was a good student. I understand things. I comprehend very well, better than I think almost anybody.”

Yes, it’s a 70-year old man still bragging about what a “good student” he was.

Here’s a longer clip of his rambling speech, in which he laboriously reads the entire executive order banning Muslims from entering the US, interspersed with swaggering self-praise, saying, “Even a bad student knows I’m right.”

It still horrifies me that this childish malevolent sociopath is in the White House.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A full moon and comet share double billing in a special night sky show this weekend.

A lunar eclipse starts everything off Friday night. The moon will pass into Earth’s penumbra, or outer shadow. The moon won’t be blacked out like in a full eclipse. Only part of the moon will be shaded, but it should be easily visible from much of the world.

Comet 45P, meanwhile, will zoom past Earth early Saturday. It will be a close encounter as these things go, passing within some 7 million miles.

The comet will be visible in the constellation Hercules. Binoculars and telescopes will help in the search.

Stargazers have been tracking Comet 45P for the past couple months. The ice ball comes around every five years.

End Times, obviously….

Mid-stage Alzheimer’s Disease
Progressive deterioration eventually hinders independence, with subjects being unable to perform most common activities of daily living.[26] Speech difficulties become evident due to an inability to recall vocabulary, which leads to frequent incorrect word substitutions (paraphasias). Reading and writing skills are also progressively lost.[26][30] Complex motor sequences become less coordinated as time passes and AD progresses, so the risk of falling increases.[26] During this phase, memory problems worsen, and the person may fail to recognise close relatives.[26] Long-term memory, which was previously intact, becomes impaired.[26]

Behavioural and neuropsychiatric changes become more prevalent. Common manifestations are wandering, irritability and labile affect, leading to crying, outbursts of unpremeditated aggression, or resistance to caregiving.[26] Sundowning can also appear.[31] Approximately 30% of people with AD develop illusionary misidentifications and other delusional symptoms.[26] Subjects also lose insight of their disease process and limitations (anosognosia).[26] Urinary incontinence can develop.[26] These symptoms create stress for relatives and carers, which can be reduced by moving the person from home care to other long-term care facilities.[26][32]

They note a dramatic split along party lines, and on the bright side (if you can call it that), a majority of independents rated the admin as “untruthful”

And to be truly useful, these polls need a better breakdown. Saying “the media” is far too vague (I mean, look how often *we* complain about substandard reporting). They should at least break it down according to cable news, regular networks, print media/newspapers, etc.

The partisan divide jumped out at me too. I’m still surprised sometimes when I see how willing Republicans and “conservatives” are to dump their alleged principles to root for their team. It really does feel like sports where you’re willing to look past a lot of bad stuff a guy on “your” team does if it means they’re going to win. And utterly depressing.

My favorite part of this story is how Nordstrom’s stock dropped very briefly and conservatives ran to say how going against Trump is bad for business and the liberals need to shut up, and by the time they hit “publish”, Nordstrom’s stock had rebounded and is now up almost 3% on the day.

The poll is heavily skewed by Republicans lost in a fantasy world:

The numbers split along party lines, with nearly 9 in 10 Republicans saying the Trump administration is truthful, compared with more than 3 in 4 Democrats who say the opposite.

The Emerson poll found that 69 percent of Democrats think the news media is truthful while 91 percent of Republicans consider the Fourth Estate untruthful.

They’ve completely abandoned the entire notion of honesty and responsibility and are cravenly appealing to the lowest common denominator.

The more we learn about the WH prep ahead of the raid, the more it looks like Bannon/Trump was goaded into carrying out the attack because Mattis said that Obama delayed action. So, to appear aggressive, he approved the raid despite inadequate intel and that the raid was compromised right off the bat.

Brilliant.

Not only didn’t we get the intel we needed/sought, but a SEAL member was killed, a valuable piece of equipment was destroyed, and several other servicemembers were injured, to say nothing of the civilian casualties, including an American girl.

According to the website, Harold Eavenson, sheriff of Rockwell County, Texas, brought up the issue of civil asset forfeiture.

A wedding officiant friend just sent this to me - I guess to her, it’s occupational humor.

Donald Trump’s Actual Wedding Vows to Melania

(Semi NSFW, so behind the button they go…)

My dear Melania or whoever happens to be standing in front of me by the time I read this. I love you for more than your beautiful face. I love you for your beautiful legs and beautiful chest. They’re both tens. Your face is a ten too. Nose is maybe a nine but your lips are an eleven so it balances out. But I don’t just love you because you’re beautiful. I love you because you’re gorgeous. I love you because you’re pretty. I love you because you’re sexually attractive. And young. I love you because you’re young. I’ve loved you since our first date at IKEA. I’ve loved you since that very first time I kissed you without permission and grabbed your… well… you know what. Your pussy.

Some very smart people have told me females want you to talk about their personalities and shit like that. Melania, or whoever, you have the most astonishingly excellent personality. People are always telling me, “She has such a great personality.” Believe me, you have a great personality. You’re quiet. That’s good. When you do speak, you have a cute little accent from whatever country it is I bought you from. Did I mention you have fabulous tits? They’re probably the best part of your personality. Both are tens. I’m going to squeeze them now.

Citizen K  Feb 8, 2017 • 12:13:25pm

Have I mentioned how much I dislike Rahm Emmanuel and wonder how the hell he ever got to head the Dems?

Despite the party base digging in for fights on Cabinet nominations and Neil Gorsuch’s Supreme Court confirmation, they’ve come up empty. And it’s looking more and more like the fight just may not be in Senate Democrats — or at least, not to the extent the base is looking for.

The National Review’s Jim Geraghty points out that nine Senate Democrats are now on the record in favor of holding a vote on Gorsuch’s nomination — a number that would end any attempted filibuster and allow for Gorsuch’s confirmation, given Republicans have 52 senators and need 60 votes to end debate.

(…)

Emanuel, ever the electoral pragmatist, urged his party not to get too dug in on every single issue. It’s not clear whether he was purposefully addressing what’s happening in Washington right now, but it sure seemed that way.

“You’ve got to pick which ones you’re going to fight about; not every pitch has to be swung at,” Emanuel said. “We don’t have the power to swing at everything. So you have to pick what is essential.”

The most important portion of Emanuel’s remarks, though, is this: ‘Our party likes to be right, even if they lose. I don’t go to moral victory speeches. … It’s about winning, because if you win, you then have the power to go do what you need to get done.’

Because ‘keeping the powder dry’ and picking/choosing fights worked so damn well.

Maybe the problem is letting GOP win fights too goddamn easily and pick up fucking momentum and letting them just steamroll you the fuck over because you DIDN’T FUCKING FIGHT YOU FUCKING TWITWIT.

My favorite part of this story is how Nordstrom’s stock dropped very briefly and conservatives ran to say how going against Trump is bad for business and the liberals need to shut up, and by the time they hit “publish”, Nordstrom’s stock had rebounded and is now up almost 3% on the day.

The Trump brand sells overpriced pseudo-“classy” crap to people with more dollars than sense, as the old saying goes. It’s a market, to be sure, but it only constitutes a modest portion of his share of the electorate. Most folks who voted for Trump (or Clinton, btw) can’t afford his shit, never could, never will. I suspect that Nordstrom’s knows their market better than Trump does.

This probably means they’re going to issue a longer reasoned decision and treat the lower court’s stay as an injunction instead of as the TRO is was intended to be.

To be fair no matter what they do it’s going to the Supreme Court next so they’re probably writing their decision with that outcome in mind instead of issuing a narrow ruling for the trial court to implement. It’s just going to suck though if we don’t get a full trial to begin with so that a concrete factual record can be established.

“…The Trump administration has prepared a new executive order that would extinguish regulatory controls designed to prevent US companies profiting from and encouraging the spread of “conflict minerals” that are inflaming violence in Congo.

A draft executive order, composed last week and obtained by the Guardian, proposes a two-year suspension of a portion of the Dodd-Frank financial reforms that requires US firms to carry out due diligence to ensure that the products they sell include no minerals mined in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or neighboring countries. The regulation was widely applauded as a mainstay of attempts to cut the umbilical chord between big business and violent warlords who have spread unrest throughout the Congo and caused the deaths of more than five million people since the 1990s…”

Unless the 9th Circuit or the Supreme Court determines that there’s no standing or that this case involves a political question, (or if Trump repeals the EO) there will still be a trial. The question is whether the EO can be enforced during litigation - and that’s actually a dangerous position for the administration because if it turns out that they act discriminatory in enforcing the order, that will be evidence against them.

After a meeting with Trump at the White House, the president essentially turned the microphone over to Krzanich for what amounted to a product unveiling in the Oval Office that aired for free on the major cable networks. The Intel CEO touted the fact that the company makes the “majority” of its products in the United States, showed off a new computer chip and stressed the company held off on “doing this investment until now.”…”

so he is basically telling the local authorities that they have free rein to do whatever they see fit…and the Federal Government will back them up

Reichsfuckingkristallnacht is coming

re: #12 Clearly a Country For Sick Old Haters

Trump has always been an awful person. Way back when he was discriminating against Black/Brown tenants and writing op-eds against innocent Black/Brown teenagers. I have no reason to believe that his awfulness/bigotry is related to any mental disease. He is just an awful person.

re: #9 Nyet

A nice article on the annoying “5 million others” meme, which was basically a lie by Simon Wiesenthal (who often had problems with the truth):

‘Remember the 11 million’? Why an inflated victims tally irks Holocaust historians

Tied to the Trump statement.

The number isn’t a lie. There were roughly 3 million Russian P.O.W.s who were killed in camps. Plus another 1 million non-Jewish Poles. Then add in a quarter-million Romani plus a shit-load of Resistance fighters from various countries, including France. The Russians refused to sign the Geneva Accords, which means that they and the Germans treated each other’s prisoners of war like garbage.

This whole past year has put me back into my 1973/75 mindset. At least now I have meds and therapy. Still have ghosts though.

There is no requirement to fluoridate the water. When I lived in town they did not fluoridate the water. I am now on a private system that does not fluoridate the water. I just use Crest! Problem solved.

How about both? He’s an awful person who is now exhibiting traits associated with Alzheimers. Doesn’t excuse his earlier behavior at all, and doesn’t make his current condition any more sympathetic. Just all the more dangerous. There were plenty of people in a position to call out a warning on this — that they chose not to tells us all we need to know about their motives.

The number is a lie because Wiesenthal lied about it. Read the article.
The actual number is either much bigger (if we include all criminal killings under the Nazis) or much smaller (if we only include genocide).

Trump:

I was a good student. I understand things. I comprehend very well, better than I think almost anybody

I have never seen a clearer statement of the Dunning Kruger effect.

Say I criticize Operation Market Garden — how many dead soldiers am I insulting?

Nah, it was the fault of the idiots who ordered it, not the soldiers who died following those orders.
