Trump’s US delegation was ‘dumbfounded’ by hostile reception at Munich conference: report


Quote:

Politico specifically reports that the American delegation was “dumbfounded” after French President Emmanuel Macron, “speaking at the forum for the first time, echoed Steinmeier the next day, noting that ‘what Europe wants is not quite the same as the U.S.'”

Pompeo lashed back at Steinmeier’s comments in his speech, telling the attendees, “I’m here to tell you the facts. Those statements do not reflect reality.”

Quote:
After the speech, a consensus formed among the Germans and French that Pompeo’s audience wasn’t the Europeans in the room, but Donald Trump. Pompeo’s insistence that the “West is winning, we’re collectively winning,” was registered by many attendees as “the U.S. is winning.”

First there was the letter of 1000+ former DoJ signatures calling for bar to resign, and now Federal judges' association calls emergency meeting after DOJ intervenes in case of Trump ally Roger Stone .

Quote:
Rufe, nominated to the bench by President George W. Bush, said the group of more than 1,000 federal jurists called for the meeting last week after Trump criticized prosecutors' initial sentencing recommendation for his friend Roger Stone and the Department of Justice overruled them.
Trump also took a swipe at the federal judge who is set to preside at Stone’s sentencing hearing Thursday.

While I'm guessing that's rhetorical, I've an answer. If the kids in a family don't show enough enthusiasm for abusive daddy, they're volunteering for the uncoveted position of Least Favourite, and all the extra abuse that entails.

Trump has been on a burst of pardons and commutations, and they're all for shitbags like this:
Trump Commutes The Sentence Of Rod Blagojevich | WBEZ

Other people who don't deserve clemency include Michael Milkin and Bernie Kerik, but they received it anyway.

It feels like Trump is really going all out to broadcast it’s open season for corruption and anyone on team Trump is guaranteed leniency. Given everything it really does seem it’s building to some corrupt officials giving whole states to Trump under the belief that so long as Trump wins, there won’t be any consequences even if caught. Bonus if propaganda networks spin Trump getting caught as proof our system is unreliable thus we should halt the elections until a Trump government approved investigation into whether democrats illegally exposed Trump officials just doing their job rigging the numbers and how many democratic senators should be jailed for exposing such weakness to our enemy. Or some such bootlicking bullcrap.

It’s amusing how so many people are realizing that when Trump asked if he could pardon himself, it was a serious question.

So being on Celebrity Apprentice is ... what? Something like time served?

But hey, let's not forget the Real American reason for granting pardons, namely payola:

Quote:
Paul Pogue, a construction company owner who pleaded guilty to underpaying his taxes by $473,000 and received three years probation, was issued a full pardon and clemency by the president.

According to FEC filings, Pogue’s family has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars in direct contributions and in-kind air travel to the Trump Victory Committee. Beginning in August 2019, Ben Pogue—CEO of Pogue Construction and son of Paul Pogue—and his wife Ashleigh made over $200,000 in contributions to the campaign.

In August alone, Ben Pogue donated $85,000 to Trump Victory while Ashleigh Pogue contributed $50,000 that month. The following month, Ben Pogue made an in-kind air travel contribution of $75,404.40. The couple also made several large donations to the Republican National Committee and each donated $5,600 to Donald Trump for President Inc.
