Bei Spicer könnte man vielleicht noch eine Spur Mitleid haben, is halt'n Scheiß-Job.
Zitat von: BrechtMitfühlend sehe ich die geschwollenen Stirnadern, andeutend
wie anstrengend es ist, böse zu sein.

Nicht so bei Frau Conway, die sich ebenso konsequent in die Lächerlichkeit entwickelt hat.
ZitatBut according to someone who has worked with Conway and knows her thinking intimately, none of that much matters to Conway. She's taking a long view in her bid to rise in the White House ranks — and she's performing for an audience of one: President Donald Trump.

Man muss sicher schon etwas weiter in der Geschichte zurückgehen, um Parallelen zu finden. ,,Audience of one" ist vermutlich eine Anspielung auf die ,,Majority of one", vgl.
ZitatBut the most important poll was created by Henry David Thoreau when he wrote, "any man more right than his neighbors constitutes a majority of one ... "
You are a majority of one. You have a duty to act like it. You have a duty to do something to preserve democracy. Something nonviolent, I hope, but something.


Weiter zur Frage, ob Rogue echt ist.

Note: this came in 30 min before Trump's tweet
POTUS happy with Miller's telephone interview. Contemplating making it required practice.
Gemeint ist Stephen Miller bei Meet The Press. Eine neue Taktik: 100 Antworten vorbereitet, und Miller liest ab, was ihm eingespielt wird. Egal ob's passt (nicht Telefon, sondern Teleprompter - ein anderer Teil der Diskussion).

Der Trump-Tweet übrigens:
ZitatDonald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump  vor 1 Stunde
Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!

Antwort von Rogue:
ZitatNo doubt many will attribute that to time difference between DC and Moscow.
Verdammt gut.


ZitatPresident Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning that Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is "not smart enough to run for president," likely a response from comments Cuban made Friday warning CEOs to be careful in talking with and about Trump.


Cuban first dismissed Trump's tweet by replying with "LOL." Cuban then tweeted an image of a 2016 letter he wrote to Trump saying that in order to be president, Trump needed "to really dig in on the issues."

Cuban also replied to a tweet on why Trump is dissing him, saying: "I don't know. But isn't it better for all of us that he is tweeting rather than trying to govern?"

Das ging dann wohl nach hinten los. Kellyanne, wo bleibt Ihr Einsatz?  :rofl


Noch eine hübsche kleine Anekdote von heute:
ZitatIn quoting civil rights activist W.E.B. Du Bois, the Department of Education on Sunday sent out a tweet misspelling his name. And then it sent out an apology that misspelled its apology.
There's probably never a good time for the Department of Education to misspell words but the time seemed particularly unfortunate for two reasons. [...]

"In the Days of Loose & Careless Logic, We Must Teach Thinkers to THINK." - William Edward Burghardt DU Bois" the NAACP tweeted, adding emphasis to Du Bois' last name.


Man beachte die Zeitangaben.

Edit. Ich hätte auch zitieren sollen, wie es weiter gegangen ist:
Zitat@RoguePOTUSStaff: To be fair, we have an advantage by posting from Moscow, which is several hours ahead of D.C.

@mmitchell_ai: Guess you are listening in via his insecure Android phone? ;-)

@RoguePOTUSStaff: Actually it's an unsecured android owned by an insecure POTUS.
Wann werden wir je wieder soviel Spaß mit einem US-Präsidenten haben.   :P :-[


Was ist das Problem?
ZitatTrump's governing style to date can only loosely be called management. He makes decisions quickly, often without consulting relevant experts or even his own appointees. He reads almost nothing, at most a few bullet points—often ripped straight from cable TV—that cannot possibly capture the nuance of complicated policy issues. When his hastily considered decisions backfire in inevitable ways, he doubles down and attacks any critics who point out either the folly or impracticability of his orders.

As with the bellowing Wizard of Oz, however, those boisterous attacks merely hide the weakness of the man behind the curtain, weakness that has already been exploited by both his staff and outside interests.

How to fix it: Die Suche nach dem Schuldigen beginnt.
Zitat"You're not going to see Trump come out and say I was wrong," this person said. "If you're waiting on him to take the blame, you're going to be waiting a long time."
His Trumpness ist es also nicht. Wer dann also? In Frage kommen Flynn, Priebus, Spicer; natürlich nicht Conway, und auch von Bannon ist keine Rede.
ZitatThe president has complained to at least one person about "how his people didn't give him good advice"

"New York Rep. Tom Reed, a top Trump ally," sagt:
Zitat"He's a loyal guy, but he's from the private sector, and he'll want to see results. As long as he sees progress, I think he'll keep his current staff around for the foreseeable future."
Das ist nun eigentlich das genaue Gegenteil von Loyalität. Die ist ja erst gefordert, wenn's mal nicht so läuft.

Franz I (1494-1547), König von Frankreich, war grandios. Aber er war auch geistreich und wollte, Nachhall der Ritterzeit, bewundert sein. Nach der Schlacht von Pavia twitterte er:
ZitatAlles verloren, nur die Ehre nicht.
Dass er seine Feldherrn beschimpft hätte, ist nicht überliefert. Seine Finanzpolitik war von ähnlicher Qualität wie die roll-outs der Präsidentenerlasse, aber seine Reaktion bestand nicht darin, dass er seine nächsten Ratgeber (unter denen kluge Leute waren) köpfen ließ. Die Frage nach den Schuldigen regelte er ohne Zugriff auf seine unmittelbare Umgebung. Die Encyclopaedia Britannica berichtet:
ZitatMoney disappeared into thin air. A few paymasters were hanged, though in vain.



"wenn gott nicht das universum und unsere physik gesetze geschaffen hat dann wie kann es sein dass wasser bei genau 0 Grad friert und bei genau 100 Grad kocht? Zufällig 2 runde zahlen, was wäre die wahrscheinlichkeit?"


ZitatA judge in Seattle has turned down the federal government's request to put a lawsuit there on hold while an appeals court mulls further action regarding President Donald Trump's travel ban executive order.

At a hearing Monday, U.S. District Court Judge James Robart rejected the Justice Department's call for a delay and invoked Trump's own Twitter comments seeming to seek quick action in the case.

"I thought the president said, We'll see you in court?" Robart said, according to a KOMO-TV reporter present at the hearing.

Twittern ist Mist, Mr President, schon gemerkt?  :grins


ZitatOn Sunday, White House aide Stephen Miller bragged, "We have a president who has done more in three weeks than most presidents have done in an entire administration."
Wenn es überhaupt jemanden gibt, für den die Bezeichnung "jungscher Schnösel" noch eine Schmeichelei ist, dann ist es wahrscheinlich Miller. Besonders nervend ist ja, dass er auf den Eindruck der alles umstürzenden Hyperaktivität bauen kann, den der Präsident vermittelt hat. Politico kommt dagegen zu einem überraschend anderen Ergebnis:

ZitatBut Miller was dead wrong about this. There is a wide gap, a chasm even, between what the administration has said and what it has done. There have been 45 executive orders or presidential memoranda signed, which may seem like a lot but lags President Barack Obama's pace. More crucially, with the notable exception of the travel ban, almost none of these orders have mandated much action or clear change of current regulations. So far, Trump has behaved exactly like he has throughout his previous career: He has generated intense attention and sold himself as a man of action while doing little other than promote an image of himself as someone who gets things done.

It is the illusion of a presidency, not the real thing.

Die Erlasse werden dann einzeln auseinander genommen, als erstes die Mauer; Zusammenfassung:
ZitatThis executive order, therefore, changes nothing, and only mandates something that has already been mandated, already been constructed and that the president lacks the spending authority to upgrade.
The travel ban, of course, is different. Aber selbst bei diesem sollte man sich hüten, Worte für Taten zu halten, sagt Politico.

IMHO ist die Öffentlichkeit aber zu Recht alarmiert. Es ist sicher etwas zuviel der Gelassenheit zu meinen, "der bellt nur, der tut nix".


Dazu die folgende Unterhaltung:
ZitatKir Heft: Staff love you guys but can you give an explanation? Curious how this works...thanks! Stay safe!

Rogue POTUS Staff:  Bag is for classified material. Rule one: do not leave key in bag when non-cleared individuals are present.

Brandi Devlin:  curious how many files on his desk are related to his business and not govt files

Rogue POTUS Staff ‏: Most papers are for show. POTUS liked to create the appearance of being constantly busy.

JR ‏@jarvik7: Hope you didn't take that picture!

Dann kommt der Link auf die Washington Post.

Hier das Originalbild von der WaPo, Detail:


Wie Trump die Hände anderer Leute okkupiert (der japanische Premier kann einem echt leid tun :o )

ist ja wirklich fast als Angriff zu werten, jemand wird sie ihm mal abhacken:
If the only thing keeping a person decent is the expectation of divine reward, brother, that person is a piece of shit. Rusty Cohle


RoguePOTUSStaff. Sie hatten die Entlassung von Flynn als Sieg der GOP im Weißen Haus über die Trump-Loyalisten dargestellt, aber die Sache ist nicht entschieden. Hier eine Auswahl der Tweets.
ZitatVP was sincerely surprised. Has been gunning for Flynn since the news broke. VP realizing defending Loyalists dangerous.

Only one thing changed over the course of Monday: publicity. Flynn wasn't fired, Pence forced him to resign.

If Priebus goes then Pence stand alone. POTUS loyalists lost the Flynn battle, but may be winning the war.

VP & COS hoping to insert another establishment player if COS replacement is needed. But not sure they can.
VP: Vice President, Pence.
COS: Chief of Staff, Priebus.

Hier eine indirekte Bestätigung für die Authentizität von RPS. Die Trumpisten verstehen die Entlassung von Flynn als Kriegserklärung.
