White House policy adviser, Stephen Miller, states emphatically that Donald Trump's powers "will not be questioned."

Courtesy of Share Blue:  

Donald Trump senior policy advisor Stephen Miller’s debut on the Sunday shows was rife with troubling foreshadowing, with his high-volume repetition of Trump talking points and botched invocation of Trump’s “voter fraud” lie.

There was one moment, though, which stood out for its shocking audacity: Miller explicitly told Face the Nation’s John Dickerson that Trump’s power exceeds that of the judiciary, the people of the United States, the free press, or anyone else. 

Miller railed against a “supreme” judicial branch in other television appearances, but on CBS, he made Trump’s despotic ambitions explicit (emphasis added):

"The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial, and will not be questioned."

Just a reminder that Donald Trump did not run to be president.

He ran to be king.  And he will not suffer those he considers "less than" to dare question him, his authority, or his policies.

Even if they are wearing judicial robes and representing the third branch of the government.

By the way this beady eyed little shit weasel made the rounds of the Sunday talk shows, and essentially repeated the same old talking points in each and every interview.

In fact in several of the interviews it appeared that he was reading the answers off of a teleprompter:
Well good, then I wasn't just imagining it.

So gee look, yet another soulless, dead eyed, seemingly animatronic spokes-liar representing the Trump administration.

I wonder if they build these in a factory, or if they are the result of some frightening Nazi inspired biological experimentation?

  10. poster previously accused of posting under the Batchit Whisperer nom de plumb9:15 AM


    Hey mister blogger whatever your name is- the post is missing a few words, take a look at what you aksidentally deleted from this post-I TOOK THE LIBERTY OF USING ALL CAPS TO SHOW WHAT YOU PROBABLY INTENDED TO SAY!

    So gee look, yet another soulless, dead eyed, seemingly animatronic spokes-liar FORMER MICHELE BATCHIT BACHMANN STAFFER* representing the Trump administration.

    *Definition of MICHELE BATCHIT BACHMANN STAFFER= someone who doesn't admit there was something wrong with Michele and her hubby Markkkus!

    WHEN STEVEN MILLER says something like this: MICHELE BACHMANN:

    (she was)a "tremendous boss" who "fostered a lively intellectual environment." Then either Miller is an accomplished spokes-liar or Miller has more Batchit in his belfry than Michele does. OR MAYBE EVEN BOTH!

    In context here is the Miller quote about Batchit Bachmann from a 2011 article:

    ""She's tough to work for," said north metro radio host Jack Tomczak, who was let go after working on the congressional and campaign sides of Bachmann's political organization. "On the positive side, she can be very demanding, and not everybody's up to the task. On the less flattering side, she can be erratic and irrational."

    The best example, Tomczak said, was Bachmann's "House Call" Tea Party rally at the U.S. Capitol to protest President Obama's health care overhaul in 2009. The event was Bachmann's brainchild and drew thousands, despite the skepticism of congressional Republican leaders and some of her own staff. Afterward, Tomczak said, Bachmann wanted a follow-up event where protesters would surround the Capitol banging pots and pans. That idea was nixed.

    "Both of those events sounded crazy," Tomczak said. "One of them was pulled off spectacularly, and the other one was crazy."

    Becky Rogness, Bachmann's current congressional press secretary, said she never heard about the pots and pans plan. But she said there's a better explanation for the frequent staff turnover in the office.

    "Working for Congresswoman Bachmann is a high-profile job in a fast-paced environment," she said. "It's not surprising staffers built sought-after experience here with Bachmann and have been enticed to take other notable positions."

    One was Stephen Miller, a young Republican aide who has cycled through several congressional leadership offices since leaving Bachmann. He calls her a "tremendous boss" who "fostered a lively intellectual environment."

    That view differs sharply from those of Carey and Tomczak, as well as four other former aides who spoke on condition of anonymity. Uniformly, and in separate interviews, they describe a politician who demands fealty and distrusts outsiders.

    "She had a way of mistrusting those around her because she viewed them as mercenaries," said one former aide well-regarded in Minnesota GOP circles. "She looked at us as somebody who wanted a paycheck, so it wasn't about helping her. But you don't question that when it's your son or your husband.""

    Reluctance to trust outside advice is seen in her recent gaffes, turnover."

      When tornadoes tore through the South third week of January, killing 20 people, the govs of Georgia, Miss., and LA were begging for help from Trump/FEMA. Trump only responded days later after a lot of criticism in the news, and then he only gave aid to Georgia and Miss. Now there have been a lot more tornadoes and in LA and FEMA is finally giving some aid to that state. Trump dropped the ball on this tornado stuff. It's been compared to how W handled Katrina. And it's been compared to how BO handled tornado emergencies and got help started even before it was needed.

      Donald Trump Is Turning His Mar-a-Lago Estate Into a National Security Nightmare

      .... As the two leaders learned of the unfolding international crisis, so too did the private citizens and resort members who happened to be dining alongside them. Quick to realize he was witnessing something unusual and highly shareable, club member Richard DeAgazio swiftly took out his camera phone to capture the incident and post the resulting photos to Facebook:
      ....
      The social media postings have sparked widespread alarm over the extraordinary security risks Trump poses by governing from his Palm Beach estate, where hundreds of members and staff who lack proper security clearances are free to roam while high level meetings, and even international crises, take place.

      "There's no excuse for letting an international crisis play out in front of a bunch of country club members like dinner theater," House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) fired off in a tweet on Monday.

      With Trump scheduled to ditch the White House for Florida for the third time since his inauguration this coming weekend, there are likely to be future photos offering regular Americans, who can't shell out the recently doubled $200,000 membership fee, more glimpses of the luxe and occasionally top-secret life at Mar-a-Lago.

    Trump has gotten even less popular while in office

    One of the enduring myths of President Donald Trump's political career is the belief that "nothing matters" — that the controversies that surround him have no effect on his standing with the public.

    The three weeks since Trump's inauguration have once again proven that untrue: Trump has lost significant ground in public approval in the aftermath of a rough start.

    ... Gallup has tracked every American president since Franklin D. Roosevelt, and before Trump, none hit 50 percent disapproval for months, sometimes years. Trump has fallen below the low point for President Barack Obama and into territory plumbed by Harry Truman, Richard Nixon and Jimmy Carter.

    Other polls showing a decline include a GOP favorite, Rasmussen, which has shown Trump dropping from a 14-point net approval rating when he started to four points now; YouGov, which has found a 13-point decline; and Quinnipiac, with a 17-point drop.

    Jerry Sandusky's Son Jeffrey Charged With Child Sexual Abuse

    One of Jerry Sandusky's adult sons faces multiple charges of sexual offenses involving children, more than five years after the former Penn State assistant coach was himself first arrested.

    Court records filed Monday say 41-year-old Jeffrey S. Sandusky was charged with 14 counts, including criminal solicitation and corruption of minors.

    The online court docket says Jeffrey Sandusky was arraigned Monday and bail was set at $200,000. He's currently in the Centre County Correctional Facility.

    Jeffrey Sandusky's lawyer didn't immediately return a phone message. The district attorney's office says it is about to release a statement.

    WTAJ-TV says state police accuse him of sending inappropriate texts to a victim and asking for naked photos.

    Jerry Sandusky is serving a lengthy prison sentence for sexual abuse of 10 boys.
