Hurricane Trump Continues to Defy Democracy With Every Lie

"I call it truthful hyperbole."
-Trump, from the Art of the Deal"

Good Day World!

The Category 5 assault upon the Constitution by Hurricane Trump and cronies has gone off the charts this year.

Last week Trump took his Sharpie to a weather map in a pathetic attempt to prove he wasn't wrong about Alabama being in the course of Hurricane Dorian.

Doubling down, Trump ordered NOAA top brass to lie about his Alabama claim. 

NOAA Employees Told Not To Contradict Trump

Followed up with this story...Commerce Chief Threatened firing of NOAA Officials After Trump's Hurricane Tweets 

Now this: Another attempt to defy the Constitution - Judge blocks Trump's Asylum Ban Along Entire US-Mexico Border for the Second Time 

And this: Trump told officials that if they break the law to finish hundreds of miles of fence along the US-Mexican border, he'd pardon them.

Then he ordered the officials to fast-track contracts on his beloved wall and to seize land and break any environmental laws that stood in the way. 

When questioned about it, WH staff claimed it was a joke. The only joke I see is Trump in the presidency.

Trump's dubious claims (lies) about China are documented.  He and his cronies have been jerking the stock market around with conflicting stories and claims about the ongoing trade war with China since last year.

The effect of Trump's witless tariffs are becoming clearer every day. Experts are saying Trump's trade war is creating a scenario similar to 2016. Trump continues to say that US taxpayers aren't suffering under his regime. Another big lie.

According to Bloomberg Monday, a Recession Already Grips Corners of U.S., menacing Trump's 2020 bid

Before signing off today I want to share one more story that made my blood run cold:

US Removed Covert Source in Russia Due To Safety Concerns Under Trump

According to a CNN report, US Officials had been alarmed by Trump's private meeting in 2017 with Putin in Hamburg and his infamous Oval Office meeting in May 2017 when Trump discussed Comey's firing, and highly sensitive intelligence concerning ISIS in Syria with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and then the ambassador to the U.S., Sergery Kislyak. 

The big takeaway from this news is our intelligence community was concerned with Trump and his cronies keeping their flaps shut and possibly jeopardizing the spy's life.

There's no doubt in my mind that Trump is the biggest threat to democracy in modern history.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
