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.

Trump has been on a burst of pardons and commutations, and they're all for shitbags like this:

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.

Things move slowly, but sometimes they get there eventually. Stories like this restore my faith a bit. Remember when Barr held on to the Mueller report before releasing it even to congress and tried to tell the public it had nothing bad to say about Dump, even though it had plenty bad to say? Well, a Judge in a FOIA case just said as much and it is strongly implied that he don't really trust Bilbar Baghead. He wants access to the unredacted report to assess whether Barr redacted parts to make the report appear more favorable to Dump's interest than it really is.

Federal judge blasts William Barr for Mueller report rollout - CNNPolitics

Quote:
"The Court cannot reconcile certain public representations made by Attorney General Barr with the findings in the Mueller Report," Walton wrote on Thursday. Barr's initial publicly announced interpretation of the findings from former special counsel Robert Mueller "cause the Court to seriously question whether Attorney General Barr made a calculated attempt to influence public discourse about the Mueller Report in favor of President Trump despite certain findings in the redacted version of the Mueller Report to the contrary."
Thank you Judge for recognizing the reality. I really appreciate that. For real.

Quote:
"The speed by which Attorney General Barr released to the public the summary of Special Counsel Mueller's principal conclusions, coupled with the fact that Attorney General Barr failed to provide a thorough representation of the findings set forth in the Mueller Report, causes the Court to question whether Attorney General Barr's intent was to create a one-sided narrative about the Mueller Report -- a narrative that is clearly in some respects substantively at odds with the redacted version of the Mueller Report," Walton wrote.
I hope I'm not just naďve, but it seems as if there is significant recognition of and active opposition to Barr's toadiness within the DOJ.
