The young Black Woman Trump supporter standing by her man…..

The NY Times is out with a front page story that feature s  Parson Hicks  at first, who as a black female in Boston from the South  would be NOT be expected to be a Donald Trump supporter …..

The piece points to Hicks being against some of Trump policy positions, but firmly supports Trump HIMSELF, and at times must deal with picking out half truths in Trump’s rants….

Ms Hicks is middle class Republican….

Further down in the Times look at other Trump supporters we get mostly white males who like Hicks, scratch their heads at their parties leader (and find rational for his words), but deep down support him because they do NOT want a Democrat against in the White House…

For Parson Hicks, a health care finance executive who supports President Trump, this past week has felt a little like déjà vu. Mr. Trump says something. His opponents howl and then predict, with certainty, a point of no return.

The last time this happened, she said, was in October with the notorious “Access Hollywood” recording of Mr. Trump talking lewdly about women. His opponents were sure he was finished. His supporters knew better.

“Let’s be honest, the people who are currently outraged are the same people who have always been outraged,” said Ms. Hicks, 35, a lifelong Republican who lives in Boston. “The media makes it seem like something has changed, when in reality nothing has.”

It was a week of incessant tumult, when Mr. Trump tumbled into open warfare with some in his own party over his statements on the violence in Charlottesville, Va.; business executives abandoned his advisory councils; top military leaders pointedly made statements denouncing racism in a way he did not; and his embattled chief strategist, Stephen K. Bannon, stepped down. But around the country, Mr. Trump’s supporters — and, according to many polls, Republicans more broadly — agreed with his interpretation of a swirl of racially charged events and stood with him amid still more clatter and churn.

Sixty-seven percent of Republicans said they approved of the president’s response to the violence in Charlottesville last weekend, compared with just 10 percent of Democrats, according to a CBS News survey conducted over the past week.

It’s an indication of what now seems an almost immutable law of the Trump presidency. There are signs that Mr. Trump’s support among Republican leaders and some Republican voters is weakening. But in an increasingly tribal America, with people on the left and the right getting information from different sources and seeing the same facts in different ways, it reflects the way Mr. Trump has become in many ways both symbol and chief agitator of a divided nation…..

Rupert Murdoch’s son breaks with Trump….Joins other Business Executives …

Things ARE getting sideways between Donald Trump and corporate America…..

At 5:55 p.m. on Thursday, James Murdoch sent an email to a list of blind-copied recipients offering a striking repudiation of President Trump and a pledge to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League. He addressed the note to “friends,” stating in the first line that he was writing it in a “personal capacity, as a concerned citizen and a father.”

Yet for the son of the conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch, who speaks regularly with Mr. Trump, it’s impossible to separate the personal, the political and the corporate.

James Murdoch’s message, which he wrote himself, was sent to a number of business associates from his company email address at 21st Century Fox, the global media conglomerate where he reigns as chief executive. And within two hours, it had been leaked to the news media, offering a window into the nuanced internal and external politics of the Murdoch media empire.

The email also raises questions about whether it is a harbinger of change at the Murdoch-controlled conservative-leaning media outlets — including Fox News, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Post — and the political direction of the company under a new generation of Murdoch leaders, James and his brother, Lachlan, the company’s executive chairman.

With the note, James Murdoch joined a number of other chief executives this week in rebuking the president for his response to the violence in Charlottesville, Va., and denouncing racism, anti-Semitism, white supremacy and neo-Nazis. Most chief executives released public statements in their roles as business leaders, although some invoked personal terms in their messages….

In recent days, after the Charlottesville bloodshed, the chief executive of General Motors, Mary T. Barra, called on people to “come together as a country and reinforce values and ideals that unite us — tolerance, inclusion and diversity.”

Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan said, “The equal treatment of all people is one of our nation’s bedrock principles.”

Walmart’s chief executive, Doug McMillon, criticized Mr. Trump by name for his handling of the violence in Charlottesville, and called for healing.

And in a rebuke to the president, who suggested that both the racist groups and the counterprotesters marching in Charlottesville were to blame for the violence there, a wave of chief executives who had agreed to advise Mr. Trump quit his business advisory councils, leading to the dissolution of two groups.

The forthright engagement of these and other executives with one of the most charged political issues in years — the swelling confidence of a torch-bearing, swastika-saluting, whites-first movement — is “a seminal moment in the history of business in America,” said Darren Walker, the president of the Ford Foundation and a board member at PepsiCo.

“In this maelstrom, the most clarifying voice has been the voice of business,” he said. “These C.E.O.s have taken the risk to speak truth to power.”…

Bannon is correct….’That Presidency is over’….

With John Kelly cleaning house and gaining a hand over things the campaign rebel rousers are gone from the Trump Admin….Some are sitting with their lawyers and talking to FBI agents….

Some are back in the private rightwing world supporting their guy….

But former Trump advisor Steve Bannon is correct….

The establishment (Majority Republican) IS clawing back …Moving  to take control of a President that adopted them , but gives then the finger ever chance he gets….Being President seems to be a bit much for a New York Real Estate Guy who wasn’t supposed to win the big prize and shows everyone why not every time he can…

With the departure from the White House of strategist Stephen K. Bannon, who helped shape the so-called nationalist-populist program embraced by Donald Trump in his unlikely path to election, a new phase of the Trump presidency begins. Given Trump’s nature, what comes next will hardly be conventional, but it may well be less willfully disruptive—which, to Bannon, had been the point of winning the White House.

“The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon said Friday, shortly after confirming his departure. “We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It’ll be something else. And there’ll be all kinds of fights, and there’ll be good days and bad days, but that presidency is over.”….

White House Sources…Bannon’s time in his day job are numbered?….Update…He’s Gone…

Update….

Stephen K. Bannon, the embattled chief strategist who helped President Trump win the 2016 election but clashed for months with other senior West Wing advisers, is leaving his post, a White House spokeswoman announced Friday.

“White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today would be Steve’s last day,” the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said in a statement. “We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.”…

While some are writing stories in the media that Donald Trump’s Charlottesville bob and weave was White House aide Steve Bannon’s idea…..

The growing consensus is new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly  has his hand on the trap door for Bannon…..Maybe….

Image result for bannon/trump/kelly

A decision is imminent from White House chief of staff John Kelly on whether Steve Bannon will keep his job, according to administration officials with knowledge of the situation:

  • Bannon, who has run afoul of Trump in the past, is now suspected by the president of leakingabout his West Wing colleagues. And Trump resents the publicity Bannon has been getting as mastermind of the campaign.
  • Many West Wing officials are now asking “when,” not “if,” Bannon goes.
  • Chief of Staff General John Kelly has been reviewing Bannon’s position.
  • A recent deluge of media coverage of Bannon — including Bannon’s explosive conversation with the American Prospect — have not escaped either the president’s or Kelly’s attention.

One White House source twists the knife: “His departure may seem turbulent in the media, but inside it will be very smooth. He has no projects or responsibilities to hand off.”

Why Bannon might still survive:

  • Trump often sends mixed signals about his personnel plans, and makes decisions — both to keep and dismiss people — on whim.
  • Bannon, with his close connection to the president’s base, is the one West Wing official who could do authentic damage to Trump on the outside.
  • We’re told that Bannon’s friendship with the billionaire Mercer family, who has been an important Trump ally, is a factor in the president’s decision and could be part of the strategist’s survival package.

Bannon is unfazed, according to friends and confidants….

Steve Bannon just gave a lefty media editor an interview….

Huh?

We KNOW he likes to stir things up, but this move is crazy…..

And actually makes his boss, the President look BAD.…(Is he spilling Foreign Policy here?)

Maybe after the Trump’s…’Steve a nice guy’ thing he don’t want the job anymore?

‘Loose lips sink ship, eh?’

Steve Bannon’s White House colleagues can’t believe what they’re reading tonight — and here’s the twist: neither can Bannon.

The White House chief strategist has told associates he never intended to do an “interview” with an editor at the American Prospect, a left-wing publication.

Bannon has told associates that he admired the author’s stance on China, and so called the journalist, Robert Kuttner, on Tuesday, to discuss his piece. Apparently Bannon never thought that the journalist might take his (very newsworthy) comments and turn them into a story. It’s Anthony Scaramucci all over again (minus the curse words.)

The result is not good for Bannon, who is already under pressure, with colleagues lined up against him and a president who agrees with him ideologically but tells associates he thinks Bannon is a leaker.

Here’s what one of Bannon’s colleagues — somebody who’s not an enemy of his — told me after reading the piece: “Since Steve apparently enjoys casually undermining U.S. national security, I’ll put this in terms he’ll understand: This is DEFCON 1-level bad.”….

More…

Here are some things that Bannon’s colleagues tell me bother them about the interview — an article that appears to be so well-read that it’s crashing the American Prospect’s servers:

  • The liberal journalist Bannon called — Robert Kuttner — is no friend of Trump’s. As Kuttner writes, “I’d just published a column on how China was profiting from the U.S.-North Korea nuclear brinkmanship, and it included some choice words about Bannon’s boss. ‘In Kim, Trump has met his match,’ I wrote. ‘The risk of two arrogant fools blundering into a nuclear exchange is more serious than at any time since October 1962.'”
  • Bannon undercut the president’s stance on North Korea: “Contrary to Trump’s threat of fire and fury, Bannon said: ‘There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.”

Donald Trump stands Defiant…And increasingly Alone…Open Thread for 8/16/17…

In a pattern that got him last years GOP Presidential nomination and the Presidency itself?

Donald J. Trump has pushed back against what is expected of person who is supposed to be leading the nation and LOUDLY proclaimed HIS version of the truth….

Pushed into walking away from the rightwingnuts that supported him and are against Minorities and Jews…

Trump doubled back to blaming the racial and religious  violence in Charlottesville on EVERYBODY except the White Power types that have been shown on TV being the aggressors…

We’ve always said here the Trump operates in an Alternate Universe and his actions recently seem to be proof…

A mixture of listening to rightwingnuts and anger at being led to do the ‘right thing’ seems to have made the man VERY angry and defiant…

(He STILL has his base people..But even that number is dropping in new polling…They seem to be ALL he has?)

And seems to be pushing him away from what ever support he has had from establishment GOPer’s…Not many are up front in chastising his action in the last 48 hours…But those same establishment GOP lawmakers that he needs to get any legislation passed ?….(Congress voted AGAINST him on Russian sanctions…There is NOT Obamacare Repeal and the Congress is getting ready to take away Trump’s ability to withhold Healthcare Insurance subsidies)

They have to be wondering WTF they would be going out on a limb to do what a New York Real Estate guy, who could give a shit about anybody but him wants….

“After Trump won the election he had the whole party behind him, except for some malcontents in Washington, but that’s shrinking now,” said one GOP strategist who requested anonymity to talk candidly about the president’s standing with his party.

“Even when all we heard about was the dysfunction and staff infighting and leaks, most Republicans were in lockstep behind the president,” the strategist said. “It feels like that is starting to break. It feels like this is getting away from him.”….

REALLY???Trump gets a rosy briefing everyday?

A daily stroking for the guy and his subordinates?

Twice a day since the beginning of the Trump administration, a special folder is prepared for the president. The first document is prepared around 9:30 a.m. and the follow-up, around 4:30 p.m. Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and former Press Secretary Sean Spicer both wanted the privilege of delivering the 20-to-25-page packet to President Trump personally, White House sources say.

These sensitive papers, described to VICE News by three current and former White House officials, don’t contain top-secret intelligence or updates on legislative initiatives. Instead, the folders are filled with screenshots of positive cable news chyrons (those lower-third headlines and crawls), admiring tweets, transcripts of fawning TV interviews, praise-filled news stories, and sometimes just pictures of Trump on TV looking powerful….

Federal employees including Obama holdovers voice their displeasure with their boss…

it’s been seven months since Donald Trump became President….

Since getting in office he has hasn’t had one kind word about federal employees…As a matter of fact?….Trump and  GOP lawmakers have been talking about taking benefits away from government workers…

So it should be little surprise that some of those workers are grumbling out loud….

A handful of current and former career staffers in the Interior Department and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have openly shredded their superiors within the last several weeks, continuing a trend that has developed throughout the government over the course of Trump’s tenure in the Oval Office.

The growing opposition in the executive branch comes as the White House’s legislative agenda has stalled in Congress and Trump turns to his Cabinet agencies to change course in several policy areas. It also is emanating from career staffers or political holdovers whose resistance to Trump has, at times, been rooted in deep opposition to the president’s agenda…..

Trump turns to buttering up some Conservatives….

As some in the Conservative movement gripe about Donald Trump’s failure to come thru on campaign problems and his poll numbers drop thru the floor ?

Donald Trump turns to keep his support with other Conservatives that still are with him for now….

Mr. Trump has strained relations with a lot of people these days — members of his own party in Congress, the 55-plus percent of Americans who say they disapprove of his performance, his attorney general, his recently ousted communications director and chief of staff. But through all the drama and dismay, one group has never really wavered: the leaders of the conservative movement.

This is no accident. Mr. Trump and members of his administration have spent their first six months in office cultivating and strengthening ties to the movement’s key groups and players with a level of attention and care that stands out for a White House that often struggles with the most elementary tasks of politics and governing.

Their outreach extends to groups across the ideological spectrum — small government, tax-averse Tea Party followers; gun owners; abortion opponents; evangelical Christians and other culturally traditional voters. And it reflects the importance that Mr. Trump and his aides have placed on the movement politics of the right, which they recognize as the one base of support they cannot afford to alienate since conservatives, according to Gallup, are 36 percent of the electorate.

“You want the structures that deliver people, votes and enthusiasm — and he understands that,” said Grover Norquist, the veteran anti-tax activist who has been working with White House officials as they develop a tax legislation package.

“Where’s Trump been the most solid?” Mr. Norquist asked, listing the range of conservative constituencies the president has prioritized. “Taxes. He’s never going to raise taxes. Pro-life, he gets that. Home schoolers, he listens to them. And guns. He’s good on guns.”

In the last week alone, the White House has given the right plenty to applaud. Besides the transgender order, Mr. Trump announced plans to crack down on Latino gang activity, urging police not to be “too nice’” in making arrests. A memo surfaced describing the Justice Department’s plan to redirect resources against universities that have affirmative action policies it deems discriminatory to whites…..

Donald Trump just won the Presidency…It Shows

Donald Trump was NOT supposed to win the Presidency….

In fact?

Image result for trump

He LOST the popular vote by almost THREE MILLION votes….

He started off with just 44% of American’s happy with him in the Real Clear Politics average…

THAT number has dropping in the last few days to 38.4%….

In just about ALL polling, independent, democratic and republican leaners?

Trump is BELOW 40%…..

We add these numbers to Trump’s inability to have signed ANY major legislation generated by his adopted parties, (which he ran against) majority led House and Senate….(and locking the Democrats out of things)

And top things off with NUMEROUS personnel changes on the front pages of the news media and Donald Trump’s tweets that highlight his inability to tell people the truth….

All of this is giving America and the World a President that is weak politically and getting weaker by the day….

……while presidents’ parties don’t always march in step with the White House agenda, partisanship can count for a lot. Even within Jimmy Carter’s White House, which was notorious for clashing with Congressional Democrats, party loyalty guaranteed a certain amount of support.

This means that Trump came into the White House at a disadvantage. Although his victory has sparked a lot of interest in why he won, the fact remains that he won fewer votes than Hillary Clinton and a below-average share of the Electoral College for a winning candidate. He also won with much less support from his own party than most newly elected presidents have received. Moreover, he articulated plenty of positions that were at odds with the GOP’s usual stances (and sometimes at odds with his own previous statements). This is especially true on health care: During his campaign, Trump promised to cover more people for less money, but that’s not what the House and Senate bills did, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates of their impacts.

Finally, while the political conditions go a long way toward determining how “strong” a president is, the White House needs a certain amount of organization to take full advantage of them. First, when it comes to policy, the main advantage that the president has over Congress is coordination. While Congress has to balance the ideas and opinions of 535 people, the executive branch can theoretically speak with one voice. Here the problems within Trump’s White House are about more than optics…

Trump Admin moves to review China’s trade practices….

I guess they don’t want China’s help with North Korea, eh?

This is probably Trump trying to leverage the Chinese into leaning on the North Korea’s….

A counter is that China HAS been aggressively trying to lock American companies out of their markets….China IS moving to step ahead of America’s leadership in world trade as Trump looks to try wring more money for American companies ….

Note….

China is America’s BIGGEST trade partner….We import almost FOUR time as much as  we export…..American’s like and buy a LOT of Chinese made products  at lower prices than they could be made in America….Trump has said he wants American manufactures to increase their market…But since Trump has gotten into office?…More American companies are moving their manufacturing operations OUT of America….

Chinese interests also have over a Trillion dollar is loans TO American interests ….That is slightly more than 25% of America’s total indebtedness….

The Trump Admin needs to be VERY careful in it’s dealings with China….

The move, which could come in the next several days, signals a shift by the administration away from its emphasis on greater cooperation between Washington and Beijing, in part because administration officials have become frustrated by China’s reluctance to confront North Korea over its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

The investigation will focus on alleged Chinese violations of American intellectual property, according to three people with a detailed knowledge of the administration’s plans. The people spoke on the condition of anonymity because the deliberations were not yet public.

Any move by the Trump administration to punish China over its trade practices would raise tensions within the world’s largest trade relationship between two countries. China’s export sector still contributes heavily to its economy growth despite Beijing’s efforts to diversify its economy, and China represents a lucrative market for American automakers, technology companies like Apple, farmers and many others….

Still, China’s industrial ambitions — and growing frustration among American companies doing business there — have become harder for United States officials to ignore.

China’s policy to become a leading manufacturer by 2025 in the fields of driverless cars, medical devices, semiconductors, artificial intelligence, robotics and many other technologies has caught the attention of officials in President Trump’s administration. The policy, known as Made in China 2025, sets goals for China to be a global leader in 10 fields of industry with the help of huge infusions of state money and the protection of those industries from American competitors.

At the same time, the Chinese government has demanded that American companies cut the licensing fees that they charge for key patents and has insisted that companies set up joint ventures to do business in China.

President Trump’s approval rating this week has dipped below the lowest numbers of former President Barack Obama, according to a Republican-leaning polling firm’s regular tracking.

The Rasmussen Reports tracking poll for Wednesday says 38 percent of likely voters approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while 62 percent disapprove.

A quarter of those polled said they strongly approve of how Trump is performing in the White House, while 50 percent strongly disapprove.

The president, in previous months, has touted the Rasmussen poll on Twitter, calling it “one of the most accurate in the 2016 Election” while bragging about his approval rating at the time.

The president’s approval ratings in the conservative-leaning Rasmussen poll generally have been higher than in other polls…..

Fresh off a stinging health-care defeat and with internal chaos embroiling the Trump administration, White House aides are signaling newfound openness to working with congressional Democrats—or, at least, to alleviating some of the toxic partisan differences that have marked their tenure.

Sources in the administration say an outreach campaign by newly minted Chief of Staff John Kelly is in the works to rebuild some bridges and, potentially, chip away at the unified Democratic opposition to President Donald Trump’s agenda. Even before he formally started the job, Kelly was reaching out to top Capitol Hill Democrats in hopes of regaining political capital ahead of what is expected to be a bruising fight over tax reform and other administration priorities.

“Tax reform is gonna be a heavy lift,” a senior White House official told The Daily Beast. “No reason to write off/alienate [Democrats] any more than we already have.”

A spokeswoman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told The Daily Beast that Kelly reached out her over the weekend with the two holding a phone conversation Sunday. A spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) confirmed that Kelly reached out to him as well…..

The New York mouth didn’t last long  eh?…..11 Days….

The NY Times says new Chief of Staff seems to have flexed on the 

‘ Mooch’who told people he reported DIRECTLY to the President…

It appears the ex-general wasn’t having THAT…

The ‘Mooch’ was also probably upstaging his boss in the media a ‘No…No’….

President Trump has decided to remove Anthony Scaramucci from his position as communications director, three people close to the decision said Monday, relieving him just days after Mr. Scaramucci unloaded a crude verbal tirade against other senior members of the president’s senior staff.

Mr. Scaramucci’s abrupt removal came just 10 days after the wealthy New York financier was brought on to the West Wing staff, a move that convulsed an already chaotic White House and led to the departures of Sean Spicer, the former press secretary, and Reince Priebus, the president’s first chief of staff.

The decision to remove Mr. Scaramucci, who had boasted about reporting directly to the president not the chief of staff, John F. Kelly, came at Mr. Kelly’s request, the people said…..

The new Trump Communications guy Anthony Scaramucci is finding out working in the White House isn’t like working on Wall Street….

The Hedge Fund guy, who lets us know he went to Harvard Law school after growing up on Long Island, NY seems to have more lip than his boss Donald Trump….That may not be a good thing…

He’s pissed that his financials are out in the media and it appears he thinks Trump Chief of Staff Reince Preibus leaked it….( Preibus has been portrayed as on thin ice since he got the job and did NOT want his boss to hire the ‘Mooch’)…

Presidential staff jockeying is normal…

But this new guy is setting a record for keeping things center stage…

Just after Politico reported that financial disclosure forms from White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci show he may profit from his ownership in an investment firm despite moving to the White House, Scaramucci tweeted:

“In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept #Swamp @Reince45…”

Ryan Lizza: “In case there’s any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking.”

Washington Post: “Some in White House are trying to build a case that Priebus is a leaker — ‘a diagram’ charting leaks, per senior official — to show Trump.”

Apparently unknown to Scaramucci: His financial disclosure is a public document….

Could this be ANOTHER Trump effort to get a staff member to quit?

Update…

Add Steve Bannon to people the ‘Mooch’ is now after….

Incoming White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci blasted chief strategist Stephen Bannon in a phone call with a reporter from The New Yorker on Wednesday night.

“I’m not Steve Bannon, I’m not trying to suck my own cock,” Scaramucci reportedly told The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza, according to an account of the explosive phone call published Thursday.

“I’m not trying to build my own brand off the f—— strength of the president. I’m here to serve the country,” Scaramucci continued on the call.

Bannon, who was a top surrogate for Trump at Breitbart News before joining the campaign and then the administration, declined to comment to The New Yorker….
