“Whatever he’s for, I’m for,” said Effie Pearson, 76, when asked about Trump attacking Canada. “I think he’s got the knowledge enough to know what is right and what is wrong. If he thinks that’s right, I’ll go with him.”

Es irritiert sie auch nicht, dass sie die ersten 76 Jahre ihres Lebens nichts von der Tödlichkeit der Zölle für Milcherzeugnisse gehört hat.

Mark Sanford, South Carolina, ehemaliger Gouverneur und seit Jahrzehnten etablierter Republikaner, Trumpkritiker, hatte bei seinen Primaries keine Chance gegen einen Trumpisten (und Rassisten).

Die Partei des freien Handels ist jetzt protektionistisch. Lob für den schlimmsten lebenden Diktator in der Welt wird abgenickt von einer Partei, die immer von Freiheit sprach. Die Anti-Defizit-Partei macht 1 Billion Dollar zusätzlicher Schulden.

Zitat
A senior advisor to the State Department appointed just two months ago has been quietly vetting career diplomats and American employees of international institutions to determine whether they are loyal to President Donald Trump and his political agenda, according to nearly a dozen current and former U.S. officials.

Mari Stull, a former food and beverage lobbyist-turned-wine blogger under the name “Vino Vixen,” has reviewed the social media pages of State Department staffers for signs of ideological deviation. She has researched the names of government officials to determine whether they signed off on Obama-era policies — though signing off does not mean officials personally endorsed them but merely cleared them through the bureaucratic chain. [...]

Noch ein schönes altes deutsches Wort: Kleptokratie

Zitat
The New York attorney general on Thursday filed suit against President Trump and his three eldest children alleging “persistently illegal conduct” at the president’s personal charity, saying Trump repeatedly misused the nonprofit — to pay off his businesses’ creditors, to decorate one of his golf clubs and to stage a multimillion dollar giveaway at his 2016 campaign events.

Zitat
But she asked the judge to go further, and require Trump to pay millions more. She said a 20-month state investigation found that Trump had repeatedly violated laws that set the ground rules for tax-exempt foundations — most importantly, that their money is meant to serve the public good, and not to provide private benefits to their founders.

Der Horowitz-Bericht ist veröffentlicht. Ich habe ihn nicht gelesen wegen a) versteh ich ihn in seiner Bedeutung sowieso nicht und b) keine Zeit für so was. Ich bin selbstverständlich (wie die allermeisten) auf Sekundärquellen angewiesen. Hier habe ich mal eine:
Zitat
James Comey:
I respect the DOJ IG office, which is why I urged them to do this review. The conclusions are reasonable, even though I disagree with some. People of good faith can see an unprecedented situation differently. I pray no Director faces it again. Thanks to IG’s people for hard work.
Das klingt jetzt nicht so, als würde er gleich in den Knast gehen  8)

Die Republikaner sind empört usw., aber selbst Fox hat:
Zitat
The Justice Department report, which was a stinging rebuke of the FBI for its handling of the Clinton email investigation, called Comey “insubordinate” and said his actions were “extraordinary.” The report, however, did not find that Comey’s actions were motivated by any political bias or preference.

The report made no recommendation of leveling any charges against Comey, but it gave both Democrats and Republicans plenty of ammunition to criticize him and the FBI.

From what I've read the IG report is careful, thorough, detailed and fair in all its parts. Now let the poisonous cherry picking begin.

Die WaPo hat einen Bericht zum IG-Report:
http://archive.is/mr46p?

Zitat
Inspector general blasts Comey, says others at FBI showed ‘willingness to take official action’ to hurt Trump
The Justice Department inspector general on Thursday castigated former FBI Director James B. Comey for his actions during the Hillary Clinton email investigation and found that other senior bureau officials showed a “willingness to take official action” to prevent Donald Trump from becoming president.
Oh. Es gab von Leuten innerhalb des FBI's eine Bereitschaft, Maßnahmen gegen Trump zu ergreifen, um ihm zu schaden.

Zitat
Though the inspector general condemned individual FBI officials, the report fell significantly short in supporting the assertion by the president and his allies that the investigation was rigged in favor of Clinton.
Der IG fand keine handfesten Beweise, dass die Clinton Ermittlungen zu ihren Gunsten frisiert wurden, aber einzelne FBI-Beamte werden wegen Fehlverhaltens beschuldigt.

Zitat
The report is a blistering public rebuke of Comey, who has spent recent months on a book tour promoting his brand of ethical leadership. Inspector general Michael Horowitz accused Comey of insubordination, saying he flouted Justice Department practices when he decided only he had the authority and credibility to make key decisions and speak for the Justice Department.
Wie hieß sein Buch nochmal? "A higher Loyalty".  ::)
Ja ne, is klar.

Zitat
Some senior bureau officials, the report found, exhibited a disturbing “willingness to take official action” to hurt Trump’s chances to become president
Ui.

Zitat
Perhaps the most damaging new revelation in the report is a previously-unreported text message in which Peter Strzok, a key investigator on both the Clinton email case and the investigation of Russia and the Trump campaign, assured an FBI lawyer in August 2016 that “we’ll stop” Trump from making it to the White House.
“[Trump’s] not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” the lawyer, Lisa Page, wrote to Strzok.
“No. No he won’t. We’ll stop it,” Strzok responded.
Tja.

Zitat
The inspector general concluded that Strzok’s text, along with others disparaging Trump, “is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects.”The messages “potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions were impacted by bias or improper considerations,” the inspector general wrote.
Darum die Bereitschaft, dem von den Dems bezahlten Pipi-Dossier zu glauben?

Zitat
Strzok told investigators he believed the message “was intended to reassure Page that Trump would not be elected, not to suggest that he would do something to impact the investigation,” according to the report. Both he and Page generally defended their messages as instances of sharing personal opinions that did not affect their work.“I’m an American. We have the First Amendment. I’m entitled to an opinion,” Page told investigators.Even that defense, however, undercuts Comey, who had long proclaimed that his investigators “don’t give a rip about politics.”
Soviel zu Comeys Glaubwürdigkeit.
Zitat
Horowitz also concluded there was no evidence that political bias infected Comey’s thinking, even as he criticized individual steps Comey took. The report, for example, called Comey’s July 2016 public recommendation that Clinton not be charged an “extraordinary and insubordinate” move, because Comey did not even tell then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch what he was about to do. But it added, “we found no evidence that Comey’s statement was the result of bias or an effort to influence the election.”
Das ist Comeys "Sie kommen aus dem Gefängnis frei"-Karte.
Da war er klüger als McCabe, der muss wegen der Meineide #2309 zittern.

Zitat
Comey was not the only official to face criticism. The report chided [jb]Lynch[/b] for indecision after meeting with former president Bill Clinton on the tarmac of the Phoenix airport in the late stages of the campaign. She neither recused herself from the case to avoid the appearance of impropriety, nor did she assert herself more vigorously as Comey seized command.
Lynch hätte sich wegen Befangenheit in der Clinton-Sache nach Ansicht des IG für befangen erklären müssen, was sie nicht getan hatte.

Zitat
The report similarly raised questions about how the FBI handled the ultimate recusal of the FBI deputy director, Andrew McCabe, from that and other cases because of political donations his wife had received from a group controlled by Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally.
Die Sache mit den hunderttausenden Dollars an Wahlkampfkostenhilfe durch Clinton für McCabes Frau.
Zitat
The report also faulted the bureau for assigning essentially the same personnel to the Russia and Clinton teams, and singled out Strzok, suggesting his anti-Trump views might have played a role in his not acting more expeditiously on the new lead.“Under these circumstances, we did not have confidence that Strzok’s decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead discovered on the Weiner laptop was free from bias,” the report said.
Natürlich nicht.

Fazit:
Die Glaubwürdigkeit Comeys ist flöten und es gibt jede Menge Hinweise auf einen Bias mehrerer FBI-Leute zu Ungunsten Trumps.
Müllers Bericht, sollte er noch vor den Midterms kommen, wird Trump und den Republikanern nicht mehr schaden können.

Insgesamt ein Punktsieg für Trump.

Sessions bibelfest (es geht um die Trennung der Kinder von ihren Eltern):
Zitat
"I would cite you to the Apostle Paul and his clear and wise command in Romans 13 to obey the laws of the government because God has ordained the government for his purposes," Sessions said.
https://edition.cnn.com/2018/06/14/politics/jeff-sessions-immigration-policy-defense-biblical/index.html

Roem 13, 1-2:
"1 Jedermann sei untertan der Obrigkeit, die Gewalt über ihn hat. Denn es ist keine Obrigkeit ohne von Gott; wo aber Obrigkeit ist, die ist von Gott verordnet.
2 Wer sich nun der Obrigkeit widersetzt, der widerstrebt Gottes Ordnung; die aber widerstreben, werden über sich ein Urteil empfangen."

Wenn es um ihre geliebten Knarren geht, dann entdecken sie aber plötzlich das Recht auf Widerstand gegen die Staatsgewalt.

Tatsächlich. Von Nordkorea lernen heißt siegen lernen.
Zitat
Trump joked after watching North Korean state-run television that not even Fox News praises him as much as the female anchor in North Korea praised Kim, a source told The Post.

The president also said that the North Korean anchor should maybe get a job in U.S. media, the newspaper reported.

Zitat von: Joe Walsh (conservative talk radio host, Tea Party activist)
So the #IGREPORT proves what?

1. The FBI was right to decide not to charge Hillary with a crime.
2. That decision wasn't motivated by political bias or improper considerations.
3. James Comey made mistakes.
4. Those mistakes helped Trump win.

Sounds like Hillary got screwed.

Angry WH Staffer:
This is where he’s wanted to go since he fired Comey.
This was always the end-game. It’s a desperate Hail Mary, but it’s coming.
Told ya we’d need alcohol today.

Sicherlich ist er zu allem fähig und zu nix in der Lage. Ich bin gespannt, ob ihn noch jemand von der Palme pflücken kann. Die eigentliche Entscheidung fällt im Senat. Wird Mitch McConnell wieder stumm an den Reportern vorbei zum Fahrstuhl schleichen?

Trump says he wants American people to treat him like North Koreans treat totalitarian dictator Kim Jong Un.

"Hey, he's the head of a country, and he's the strong head -- he speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same."

Nein, wird er nicht. Er findet jetzt auch, dass es an der Zeit ist, Mueller abzuschießen. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/mitch-mcconnell-why-cant-the-mueller-investigation-finally-wrap-up

Die Zustimmung für Trump ist wieder leicht angestiegen: nicht obwohl, sondern weil er ist, wie er ist. Nüchterne Bestandsaufnahme hier:
https://cookpolitical.com/analysis/national/national-politics/trump-everything-voters-hopedfeared-he-would-be

Ich denke mir das etwa so. McConnell sagt sich: Wir haben aktuell eine Chance, die Entlassung jetzt politisch zu überleben, aber wir haben keine Chance, wenn Mueller die Hintergrundmusik für die midterms im November dirigiert. Lieber jetzt den Schrecken, als zu den midterms im November das sichere Ende. Das ist eine Pascalsche Wette.

Im House ist man zu der gleichen Ansicht gelangt:
Zitat
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Friday said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation needs to end due to recent revelations by the Department of Justice's internal watchdog.

McCarthy said that the text messages sent between FBI agents during their probe of Hillary Clinton's private emails clearly discredit Mueller's team's work.
und liefert gleich die saga dazu, die aus allen Fox-Rohren verspritzt werden wird.

Und sie müssen schnell sein, sonst verpufft der kümmerliche Horowitz-Effekt völlig. Bitte anschnallen.
