The guy is accused
of manipulating U.S. politics and enabling the killing in Aleppo, and
his favorability rating goes up. Seriously?

Much like President-elect Donald Trump and Vice President-elect Mike Pence,
9 in 10 Republicans describe Putin as a strong leader. Nonetheless,
about 7 in 10 say they’re confident in Trump’s ability to “handle
Russia.” By contrast, only 28 percent of Republicans say they have
confidence in the CIA.
Republicans Show True Colors As GOP Views Putin More Favorably Than Obama Republican opinions of Putin spiked around the same time Trump called on Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails. By Sean Colarossi on
According to a new Economist/YouGov poll, Republicans view Vladimir Putin – a man directly involved in a cyber attack against the United States – more favorably than current U.S. President Barack Obama.
The survey showed that 17 percent of Republicans have a very or
somewhat favorable opinion of the current president – a
What is surprising is that GOPers, by double digits, have much more
positive feelings about Putin. According to the poll, 37 percent have
very or somewhat favorable feelings about the Russian president who,
again, personally influenced America’s presidential election.
Over the past two years, Putin’s favorability rating among
Republicans has grown by a stunning 56 points. Democrats, on the other
hand, view him more negatively now than they did in 2014. Full Article
Trump owes $713 million in loans, $2 billion in real estate debt
Mother Jones, 3 days ago
Below is a list of all the financial players that Trump owes money
to and how much Trump directly has borrowed from each one. This roster
is based on publicly available loan documents. According to his own
public disclosure, Trump, as of May, was on the hook for 16 loans worth
at least $713 million. This list does not include an estimated $2
billion in debt amassed by real estate partnerships that include Trump.
One of those loans is a $950 million deal that was cobbled together by
Goldman Sachs and the state-owned Bank of China—an arrangement that
ethics experts believe violates the Constitution’s emolument clause,
which prohibits foreign governments from providing financial benefits to
federal officials. http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/12/guide-donald-trump-debt Who knows what his tax returns would reveal. Perhaps he's not a billionaire or even a millionaire. Most likely a shitty businessman wanna be. Beholden the world over and easily exploitable.
What billionaire or millionaire scotch tapes his cheap ass Chinese tie???
Fake news front man and nutritional supplement hawking Alex Jones scrambles to save his profitable colloidal silver empire. His "Dick Enhancing" supplement actually seems to work though, despite turning the user orange.
A bright orange Trump depends on Jones for news and talking points.
Conspiracy theorist and InfoWars host Alex Jones is scrambling to erase content he’s disseminated related to #PizzaGate, according to Media Matters.
Promoters of the Pizza Gate conspiracy theory claim that a D.C.
pizzeria was used as headquarters in a child sex trafficking operation
run by Hillary Clinton. The story was shared on
numerous junk websites and was even shared on the social media accounts
of people close to president-elect Donald Trump‘s transition team.
It’s well known that Jones was an avid promoter of Pizza Gate, until InfoWars fan Edgar Welch walked in the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in D.C. and fired off a few rounds
from his assault rifle. Now, Jones is doing everything he can to
distance himself from the fact that he helped the ridiculous claims go
One particular video where Jones says that Clinton is “one of the
most vicious serial killers the planet has ever seen,” and goes on to
accuse her of being a pedophiliac child killer, was viewed over 427,000
times before being scrubbed from his YouTube channel (it has been
The video, titled “Watch PIZZAGATE: The Bigger Picture on YouTube,” was shared by Welch before the shooting.
Right Wing Watch was able to recover the video’s audio:
In the wake of the Comet Ping Pong shooting, the FBI filed a criminal complaint that inquired about the video.
Sniveling bully move by someone using Twitter as his fledgling state run media outlet.
Source: Twitter cut out of Trump tech meeting over failed emoji deal
by Nancy Scola via Politico
Twitter was told it was "bounced" from Wednesday's meeting between tech
executives and President-elect Donald Trump in retribution for refusing
during the campaign to allow an emoji version of the hashtag #CrookedHillary, according to a source close to the situation.
Halfway through a recent late lunch at the Trump Grill—the clubby
steakhouse in the lobby of Trump Tower that has recently become famous
through the incessant media coverage of its namesake landlord, and the
many dignitaries traipsing through its marbled hall to kiss his ring—I
sensed the initial symptoms of a Trump overdose. Thanks to an
unprecedented influx of diners, we were sitting at a wobbly overflow
table outside the restaurant, in the middle of a crush of
tourists, some of whom were proposing to their partners, or waiting to
buy Trump-branded merchandise, or sprinting to the bathroom.
Former congressional staffers reveal best practices for making Congress listen
Donald Trump is the biggest popular vote loser in history to ever to call himself President-Elect. In spite of the fact that he has no mandate, he will attempt to use his congressional majority to reshape America in his own racist, authoritarian, and corrupt image. If progressives are going to stop this, we must stand indivisibly opposed to Trump and the members of Congress who would do his bidding. Together, we have the power to resist - and we have the power to win. We know this because we’ve seen it before. The authors of this guide are former congressional staffers who witnessed the rise of the Tea Party. We saw these activists take on a popular president with a mandate for change and a supermajority in Congress. We saw them organize locally and convince their own members of Congress to reject President Obama’s agenda. Their ideas were wrong, cruel, and tinged with racism - and they won. We believe that protecting our values and neighbors will require mounting a similar resistance to the Trump agenda -- but a resistance built on the values of inclusion, tolerance, and fairness. Trump is not popular. He does not have a mandate. He does not have large congressional margins. If a small minority in the Tea Party can stop President Barack Obama, then we the majority can stop a petty tyrant named Trump.
Who is this document by and for?
We: Are former progressive congressional staffers who saw the Tea Party beat back President Obama’s agenda.
We: See the enthusiasm to fight the Trump agenda and want to share insider info on how best to influence Congress to do that.
You: Want to do your part to beat back the Trump agenda and understand that will require more than calls & petitions.
You: Should use this guide, share it, amend it, make it your own, and get to work.
