Entire West Virginia Supreme Court Hit With Articles Of Impeachment
 
04:17
The state Supreme Court of West Virginia is facing impeachment – the ENTIRE court. The state legislature this week approved the articles of impeachment after a lengthy investigation revealed a major spending scandal among the justices, which included them spending $34,000 on a couch, in addition to other unnecessary renovations of their offices. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains what this could mean for the future of that court system.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/west-virginia-impeaches-entire-supreme-court Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Last week the West Virginia House of Delegates approved 14 articles of impeachment against the sitting judges at the moment. And then Monday of this week, the house at large approved 11 of those 14 articles of impeachment. Now, this is significant. This is every single member on the West Virginia State Supreme Court of Appeals. This is a massive move. And what started all this is actually a spending scandal, that kind of embroiled everyone there on the Supreme Court. One of the things that they spent money on, they spent $34,000 on a couch. They also spend hundreds of thousands of dollars renovating their individual offices, using public vehicles for private travel. Wracking up all kinds of bills that they shouldn't be able to wrack up, which is why they're being impeached. And honestly, that's a good move. The makeup of the court as it stands right now, because one Justice has already resigned, is that there's two Democrats, one Republican, and one Republican leaning independent. So it's pretty much split two and two, the Chief Justice is a Democrat. But here's the thing, the solid Republican on that court is actually facing additional charges, could be look at actual criminal prosecution, not just impeachment, because he, and here it is, he faces federal prosecution for fraud, witness tampering, and false statements. And he's also accused of using a state contract in a moving company to steal priceless office furniture from state buildings for personal use, and billing state accounts for his book signing tour, which actually happened to be a book about government corruption in the state of West Virginia. So, while he's out promoting a book about corruption in West Virginia, he's also engaging in corruption in West Virginia to promote his book. I mean that is how disgusting this entire court system in the state of West Virginia apparently had become, at least at the State Supreme Court level. And here's the sickening part to me though. In addition to the spending scandals, the witness tampering, the fraud, the false statements, all of that, is that there's actually some Democrats out here who are furious that this has happened. The Daily Coast is mad because they're saying, "Oh, this is just the Republicans and the legislature, they're trying to take back over the court. You could tell that from the timing of this." An investigation happened, it founds massive wrongdoing amongst all members of the Supreme Court, not just the Democrats, but the Republicans too. Everybody was engaging in unethical, potentially illegal behavior. So, I'm sorry that that angers you, that you think this is a Republican power grab, but regardless of political party, corruption needs to be rooted out of all levels of government. I mean I'm tired of hearing Democrats, "You can't say this, because that's a Democrat and we need them." Oh, we can't lose this Supreme Court that goes right 90% of the time anyway, because they're Democrats. Listen, corruption knows no party, right? If somebody is corrupt as hell, and doing things that are potentially illegal, it doesn't matter if there's a D, and R, and I, a G, or an L next to their name, they need to go. That's how this government, that's how this country is supposed to work. So, don't whine to me that an already right leaning state Supreme Court that rules with corporations and fossil fuel interests most of the time could be remade into being even more conservative. If you're already conservative, you're not going to get more conservative than that when it's a black and white issue such as the law.

Trump Officials Say They Are FINALLY Embarrassed To Work For Trump
 
02:58
Top officials in the White House are finally willing to admit that Donald Trump is an embarrassment to the country, and all it took was for him to commit some light treason on international television with the world watching. According to interviews with top administration officials, they said they couldn’t even finish watching Trump’s press conference in Helsinki out of sheer embarrassment. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.axios.com/trump-white-house-officials-embarrassed-putin-russia-2a8fb858-4913-4f14-a86f-9384edfa796d.html Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

The officials that work inside of the Trump administration are not quite as forgiving. According to a new report by Axios, the reactions that senior Trump administration officials had to his appearance on stage with Putin was absolutely one of embarrassment. I want to read you a couple things out of this Axios article because it's just phenomenal. A former senior White House official who worked closely with Trump immediately texted us, reporters were saying this, "I need a shower after watching Donald Trump fall all over Putin." One of Trumps own former National Security Council officials texted, "Dude, this is a total effing disgrace. The president has lost his mind." And, CBS Face the Nation anchor Margaret Brennan who was in the audience told the AP that she was messaging some US officials during the speech who said they were at the point where they were just turning off their television. What's happening right now inside of the Trump administration is embarrassment. Unfortunately, it took Donald Trump going on international television and betraying the United States for these people to finally feel embarrassed, but at least it happened. And it actually gets worse, because after that little presser between Trump and Putin, his National Security Advisors got together and had a meeting of which Donald Trump was supposed to attend but instead, they reported that he went back to his hotel room, climbed into bed and turned in TV. So, after betraying the United States, he couldn't even bother to meet with his National Security Council and instead wanted to crawl into bed, maybe have some of his "executive time," and watch TV. Tuesday morning when he's back at the White House, they had to have another emergency Security Council meeting basically just to do damage control about what this morn said in Helsinki. Later in the day obviously we got Donald Trump;s pre-typed apology backtrack note, which didn't apologize or backtrack for anything. He gave a lame excuse that you'd have to be borderline brain dead to actually believe but, that's what's happening. I don't think we're going to see anybody actually leave the Trump administration because they feel embarrassed now or because they realize that Donald Trump doesn't care about this country. But, at least they finally get it. They finally understand what most people in this country saw from day one. Perhaps they were just a little too close to the president at the time to be able to recognize it.

Trump Sent Into Panic As Michael Cohen Says He Won’t Be Silent Anymore
 
03:20
If you haven’t noticed in the last few weeks, Donald Trump’s behavior and his insistence that the investigations into him are “phony” have been increasingly erratic. The reason is because he understands what’s happening with Michael Cohen. Armed with a new lawyer, Cohen says that he refuses to remain silent any longer, and this can only mean that the man is ready to work with investigators to potentially take down Trump. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/07/michael-cohen-lanny-davis/amp Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, there have been countless stories in the last week and a half about Cohen flipping, potentially flipping I should say, and yeah, it seems more and more likely that he's going to do that. In fact, according to friends of Cohen's, he recently had the following thing to say here. "For a year and a half I've been silent. What has silence gotten me? It's ruined by business, it's ruined my wife's life, it's ruined my children's lives. I've been a punching bag for everybody, why am I going to continue to be silent?" This statement from Michael Cohen would seem to indicate that he's ready to start talking to people. Now, as it stands right now, he has not met with investigators or prosecutors, so we know that there is currently not been any kind of plea deal arranged for Michael Cohen. That could change any day. It may never change. We have to wait this out and see what happens, but what we do know is that Michael Cohen is very clearly signaling to the president that, "I am not going to sit idly by anymore, let you run roughshod over all of these investigations, not defend me, and expect me to still have your back at the end of the day." Now again, we've had reports recently of Cohen being angry with Trump for not paying his legal bills, for not coming to his defense, and that is kind of what sparked all of this. It's likely what sparked his hiring of Lanny Davis. The reason Cohen is being so outspoken right now, now that he has Lanny Davis, is because Davis is a different kind of attorney from the ones that Cohen had had. They didn't want him out there talking. They did not want him talking to the press. They basically silenced him completely, would only allow him to give short, a few word responses to any questions from the media, could not go on TV, but once Davis took over, all that changed. They are sending a clear message to the President of the United States. Lanny Davis has also been sending those messages to both Giuliani and Trump. That message is, wait and see what happens. You turned your back on the guy that saved your butt countless times throughout your life and now the one man who knows all of your dirty secrets is not going to stay silent anymore. That has Donald Trump freaked out more than anything on this planet. That also helps explain why Donald Trump's behavior's becoming a little bit more erratic, why he's constantly tweeting out about witch hunts and trying to say, "Look how great our economy is, it's roaring." He said in a tweet this past Tuesday. "Roaring." As thousands of people lose their jobs from his tariffs, but that's all he's got. He needs a win because he sees in the very near future a very massive loss headed his way at the hands of Michael Cohen.

Trump Already Creating An Alibi For Potential Midterm Losses For Republicans
 
03:15
In the last few days, Donald Trump has upped his calls for a government shutdown over his border wall funding, a call that is leaving many Republicans terrified for their political futures with midterms right around the corner. But the shutdown threat has less to do with the border wall and more to do with creating an excuse for the expected losses Republicans are looking at in November. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains Trump’s motives.   Link – http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/399713-trump-sticks-by-shutdown-threat-i-dont-care-what-the-political Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, this is one of the things that Donald Trump has tweeted out this week. He said, "I don't care what the political ramifications are. Our immigration laws and border security have been a complete and total disaster for decades. There's no way that the Democrats will allow it to be fixed without a government shutdown." So, he's already trying to say, we're going to have to shut down the government, because the Democrats don't want to fix it, but he also says he doesn't care about the political ramifications. See, that to me is key right there, because I have a theory about all this. We know that, right now Republicans across the country, the elected officials, I should say, are freaking out at the prospect of a government shutdown, because the budget year ends at the end of September, which would mean, if they cannot pass a new one with border wall funding and it basically comes to a stalemate, government shuts down beginning of October. What happens one month later? The 2018 midterm elections, where Republicans are expected and predicted to take a massive shellacking from the Democrats, lose the House, possibly even the Senate. See, Donald Trump, for the first time in his life actually understands something, and he understands that, that Republicans are most likely going to lose. If they do, it's going to make him look bad, and that's what's important to him, how he looks to the public. So, by threatening this shutdown and possibly by actually shutting down the government, he knows Republicans are going to lose anyway, but a shutdown's going to hurt them even more, he can then use that as clearance and say, "Hey look, Republicans lost the midterms, but not because of me, not because I was unpopular, but because they wouldn't fall in line with me and secure that border wall funding like I asked, and now they paid the price. Now the Democrats are here, and I'll never get the funding. Oh, that's why everything's so horrible. So you gotta vote for me in 2020, and get the Republicans back in the House, 'cause they've probably learned their lesson by now, and then we can get the funding." He is actually setting up the long game now. He knows he's not going get that border wall funding this year. It's not going to come really ever. Let's be 100% honest about that. That border wall funding will never go through, no matter who controls the House, Republicans or Democrats, whatever it is, he'll never get it. He knows that. His base doesn't know it, because they're not the brightest bunch out there. As long as he keeps out there, with these phony talking points, saying, "Oh, the Democrats did this ... darn them, and that's why Republicans lost in the midterms. Not because of me, because I'm great, right guys?" He is setting this up, and it's all because of his ego. Has nothing to do with border wall funding. It has nothing to do with not caring about the political ramifications. It's about covering his own ass before his party takes a massive beating in the 2018 midterms.

Jared Kushner’s Father Is Headed For Financial Ruin Because Of Jared
 
04:15
Jared Kushner’s political ties and his seemingly never-ending corruption are helping to destroy his family’s fortune. New reports say that Jared’s father is now struggling to find investors for his business an property holdings, and that he could be facing financial ruin by the end of this year. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this. Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/jared-kushners-dad-shunned-investors-headed-disaster-report/ Ring of Fire needs your help!

Charles Kushner, the father of Jared Kushner, who is the son-in-law of the President of the United States, could be headed for financial ruin, according to a recent report, as early as the end of this year. Here's what's happening to Charles Kushner and his multi-billion dollar real estate empire in the state of New York. You see, Kushner is in debt, I think by about $1.2 billion. He asked to get investors and other kind of financiers to step in and help him with the properties and projects that he wants to do. It's a typical thing that happens in real estate. You're in debt until you sell a bunch of properties, then you get all your money back and then some. However, Kushner's having a really hard time right now because nobody wants to work with him because of the political affiliations and seemingly nonstop scandals coming from his son, Jared. So, because he cannot find investors, because nobody wants to work with him, he could be headed towards bankruptcy by the end of this year. I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for Charles Kushner. This is not, surprisingly, Jared Kushner's fault. Well, I guess, to an extent, it is, because Jared Kushner being thrust into the national spotlight has allowed that national spotlight to also shine on all of the horrible things that his family business has done. That's the problem here. It's not that Jared necessarily went and did all these horrible things that the company's been accused of. He was involved in some of them according to investigations, but it's the fact that people are now paying attention and they understand what kind of shady shoddy business Charles Kushner and Jared Kushner have been running for years. That's the problem that Charles Kushner is facing right now. And I'm sure it doesn't help that his own son is being investigated for four different things by four different organizations but sooner or later, all of this would've come out eventually. There's only so many times that any kind of big major business or company can continuously, allegedly, I have to throw in there, break the law without somebody stepping in and saying, "Hold up. We've got to take a look at this," and that's exactly what happened recently with the New York Department of Buildings, that's now investigating Kushner and the family business because they lied repeatedly on at least 80 different official state forms. So yeah, Charles Kushner probably isn't too happy with Jared right now. But at the same time, he needs to understand that he is also a part of this. This isn't just because of Kushner, it's not because of the fact that Jared is the son-in-law of the most hated President in modern American history. It's due to the fact that they're unethical businessmen and that seems to be a common theme among some of the people who are high profile Republicans in the Republican party. That's what we've come to expect. I would expect no less from Jared Kushner's father. After all, where do you think this kid learned how to do all the shady things he's been accused of doing? He didn't read a book about it. Probably learned it by watching Daddy, which according to reports, is what Jared Kushner, who is 36, 37 years old still calls his father. I'm curious as to see what kind of influence Jared Kushner will still have within the White House if his family ends up going bankrupt and Jared Kushner is suddenly worth $0. I'm sure in the eyes of Donald Trump, possibly even Ivanka, that's going to make him not just financially worthless, but also worthless as a human being. That's going to be interesting to see how that plays out.

Donald Trump, Jr. May Have Been Caught On Wiretap With Russian Asset
 
04:30
Donald Trump, Jr. should be very concerned – those are the words that Spanish investigators who have been monitoring and wiretapping Russian asset Alexander Torshin used to describe Trump’s meeting with Torshin during his father’s campaign. The Spanish intelligence agency has not yet confirmed that Trump is on one of their wiretaps of Torshin, but they have made it clear that things are looking bad for the little Trump. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.yahoo.com/amphtml/news/trumps-son-concerned-wiretaps-show-trump-jr-met-putin-ally-231215529.html?__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And here's why, and before we get into here's why, just understand that those aren't my words, no. That's actually what Spanish intelligence officers are telling us, specifically a man by the name of Jose [Grinda 00:00:19]. He was actually in charge of an investigation into the Russian asset Alexander Torshin. And if you're not familiar with Torshin, he is with the Russian Central Bank. He used to be with the Russian government, very close ties, good personal friend of Vladimir Putin, and he's been operating in the United States as well as other countries to basically interfere as best he could on behalf of the Kremlin. So Spanish investigators, their head investigative body, decided to put a wire tap on him. They wanted to know what the hell he was doing and what was going on. So Jose Grinda, in an interview this week, when asked if people should be concerned, or if that he, himself was concerned. He said this, "Mr. Trump's son should be concerned." Referring to the wire taps that they have gone through, and that, by the way, they have also turned over to US investigative bodies. Now, while they didn't say which investigative bodies they've given those wire taps to, most believe that obviously, these were handed over to the special prosecutors office, or, which is probably more likely, they went to the FBI for further investigation. Now, he also admits that the US, if they want to use these in any kind of trial or prosecution, or for specific charges against an individual, they will have to file new paperwork and make it official that they're going to be using this Spanish information. But again, here's the thing, we know that Donald Trump, Jr., the man who should be very concerned right now, met with both Alexander Torshin and Maria Butina, the woman who offered sex in exchange for positions at high ranking, high profile Republican and political organizations. He met with them during the time that Spanish authorities say that they did have a wire tap on Torshin. Now, they did not specifically say whether or not that meeting was wire tapped, but the ominous warning that Trump, Jr. should be very concerned, is basically a tacit admission that they know something that one, Trump, Jr. doesn't want them to know. And two, that could be potentially damning for Donald Trump, Jr's. career, wherever he may want to go. Again, very bad news for Trump, Jr., especially with all of the news coming out about Torshin himself, about Maria Butina, who the news about her, just honestly keeps getting worse by the day. People are going to start going down soon. We already have Republican Dana Rohrabacher, who's been called Vladimir Putin's favorite Republican member of Congress. He's roped into this through his contacts with Butina. We know that she was offering sex to anybody willing to let her move up in an organization. We're going to find out pretty soon, I imagine, if anybody took her up on that offer. We know she had close ties to the NRA. We've seen the photographs of her standing with people like Wayne La Pierre, Rick Santorum, Bobby [Jindal 00:03:42], Scott Walker from Wisconsin.

Judge Laughs At Trump Family For Trying To Delay Charity Fraud Trial

Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire The Trump Foundation will be facing trial before the midterm elections, but that isn’t for a lack of trying on the part of the Trump family. Last week, the judge overseeing the case laughed out loud when asked if the case could be delayed until after the November elections, which is a huge blow to both the Trump family and the entire Republican Party, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.

Now this suit involves Donald Trump himself, Donald Trump Jr., Ivanka Trump, and Eric Trump. But anyway, during last Tuesday's hearing, lawyers for the Trump family actually tried to argue that the case, the trial, should be moved back, which is currently set for October, but they didn't want it to start in October, because they felt it might influence people in this year's midterm election, so they tried to have it moved till after the midterms take place. Do you know what the judge's response to that was? She laughed. She laughed out loud in the courtroom. Not only did she then say like, "I'm not going to move it at all. This thing's happening in October," but then she added, "and guess what? I'm probably going to call Donald Trump in to testify." See, the Trump family is facing a lot of legal problems, not just from Mueller, not just from the IRS investigations, and the FBI investigations, but also from this case here in New York City. Now luckily for the Trump family, at the moment this is just a civil suit. There are no criminal charges filed for basically using their charity to defraud everyone. That is illegal and the case has been referred for possible criminal prosecution, but as of right now the New York attorney general is only seeking the money back that the charity basically stole and used for their own personal wellbeing. Again, this involves every member of the Trump family that's worth anything at the moment, Trump himself, Jr., Ivanka, Eric. They're all in this together, because they all work together to make sure that this charity was their own personal piggy bank, but back to the big issue here. The fact that this judge laughed when this guy, the Trump lawyer, tried to get the case pushed back so as not to interfere with the midterms. This presents a very real problem for not just the Trump family, but for the entire Republican Party. In fact, the judge actually told the Trump children, "You guys need to go ahead and take a deal that's being offered where you admit to wrongdoing and you don't serve on the board of a charity in New York for the next year." She's telling them you need to do that, because as this goes forward, as more of this comes out, it's not going to work out well for you, and the judge said, "I'm probably going to go ahead and make a ruling that you can't serve on a charity for a year anyway," so why not just take this wonderful offer, pay back the money, which is basically an admission of wrongdoing, and don't be on another charity board. But they're not doing it, because they're stubborn, and let's be honest, they're pretty stupid. This judge is handing them everything to make it easier for them so as not to influence the midterms, but the Trump family's arrogance and stupidity is preventing them from taking this very generous offer. They're going to let it go to trial. They're going to be involved in this civil suit, and everyone in this country is going to see just how disgusting, deceitful, and dare I say deplorable, every member of that Trump family truly is.

Even Fox News Hosts Are SHOCKED By Rudy Giuliani’s Stupidity

Rudy Giuliani had a disastrous Monday, to put it mildly. After a string of bad interviews, he decided to give it one more shot by appearing on Fox News, the friendliest network to this administration, and he somehow managed to make things so much worse for himself and Donald Trump to the point that even the hosts couldn’t believe how much Giuliani was harming his case.

I know most people say they hate Mondays, but, trust me, yours probably wasn't as awful as Rudy Giuliani's. See, Giuliani thought it'd be a good idea Sunday and Monday to make the media rounds, get his face back out there, and also destroy his client's case, which is exactly what he did during almost every single interview. In fact, after he had given all those horrible interviews, he decided to go on Fox News, the friendly audience, the people who absolutely could not screw this up. They're team Trump. They're going to make sure Giuliani doesn't do anything ridiculously stupid, and they absolutely failed. Take a look at what happened when Giuliani phoned it in on Fox News. Let me just ask it this way. You've now told us about two meetings. There was one that the public knows about, which when you talk about a meeting and you say that the president wasn't there, that's the one that everybody would assume that we're all on the same page about. What you're saying now is that there was another meeting that was leaked that has not been made public, and I would assume until now really described by you, Rudy Giuliani, in detail, that happened three days prior that had Don, Jr., Jared Kushner, Paul Manafort, Gates, and possibly two others. That's the meeting that Michael Cohen says the president was not ... or the president knew about ahead of time, but you say the president was not there. No, no. Cohen is not alleging ... Look, I don't know. All I have are two reporters telling me Cohen told them there was a meeting three days before with a group of people that I said and that they discussed [inaudible 00:01:42] meeting and that the president was not there. He didn't say the president knew about it. I am telling [inaudible 00:01:48] that meeting didn't take place, never happened. He had to have it with himself. Second, there's another leak. This one is out, and this one Cohen says he was in Donald Trump's office when Donald Trump, Jr. walked in and told them about a Russian meeting that was about to start. That is also not true. But, sir- Didn't happen. This is Melissa Francis. I just want to jump in. I don't think any of that really addresses the question of why you would say he wasn't at the meeting. Who? Why did Cohen say? Why are you saying that the president wasn't at the meeting? I understand those two meetings that you just set out there, but that doesn't explain why you're saying he wasn't there. Because the meeting didn't take- Who asked if he was there? No one asked if he was there. It takes a lot for the people who are your friends, the people who would defend you no matter what. The guys at Fox News, the women at Fox News, the producers at Fox News, everybody is on your side. When you leave them stunned, shocked, searching for words, trying to make sense of what the hell you just said, you know you've screwed up. Because as those hosts right there on Outnumbered admitted, you just gave information that you hadn't said before, and it doesn't look really good for Donald Trump. "Was there a second meeting?" "Maybe, but no, but Trump was there but he wasn't there, but he didn't know about because he did know about it." That is essentially what happened during that interview.

Trump Lawyer Michael Cohen Totally Screwed After FBI Seize 16 Cell Phones In Raid
 
02:37
Michael Cohen might actually be the dumbest criminal ever. Anyone that has ever watched a police drama show knows that you are supposed to throw away those cheap “burner” phones you get at gas stations. But apparently Cohen didn’t realize that, and he kept these burners lying around, just waiting to be seized, and that is EXACTLY what happened during the FBI raid. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses the fact that 16 cell phones were taken from Cohen and what this means for the investigation.   Link – https://nypost.com/2018/04/26/feds-seized-more-than-a-dozen-of-michael-cohens-phones/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Here's why, it was revealed this past week that Cohen, during the FBI on his house, his office, and his hotel room, they seized 16 cell phones from the guy. Now, if you have ever watched any kind of cop drama on TV you know that people committing crimes like to use those burner cell phones. They go to the gas station, they buy a cell phone to make a few quick calls or some kind of deal or whatever, then they throw it away and it's untraceable. Apparently, Michael Cohen doesn't know to do that and so he just kept all of his cell phones ever, that all have all of his call records. We can trace everything that he did. We can find out who he was text messaging, who he was calling, how long they talked, when it was. We can create a criminal timeline of activity because Michael Cohen, much like his client Donald Trump, is painfully and almost criminally stupid. In fact, the FBI actually said that some of the phones they seized, at least two of them were Blackberries. If that gives you any idea as to how long this guy was holding on to some of those cell phones. We can probably, conservatively trace phone calls and text messages and emails from him, back at least a decade. The FBI turned in four phones and one iPad already to the court. They said they still have about a dozen more to go, there's 16 of them, and there's no telling what kind of information they're going to get on this. If they can create a timeline that shows that Michael Cohen was in direct contact with the Donald Trump in the days before and the days after the payment that he made to Stormy Daniels, then that ties Trump into this criminal conspiracy and could very easily lead to his prosecution, completely outside of the results of the Mueller investigation and it's all because Michael Cohen, much like his client, is just one stupid individual.

John Kelly Gives Up, Doesn’t Care If Trump Gets Himself Impeached
 
02:41
According to a new report from Politico, people inside the White House are saying that Trump and his chief of staff John Kelly are barely tolerating one another, and that Kelly has decided to just let Trump do whatever the hell he wants to do, even if it leads to his impeachment. This makes sense, considering how unhinged Trump has been in the last few weeks, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/john-kelly-barely-tolerating-donald-trump-and-lets-him-do-what-he-wants-even-if-it-leads-impeachment Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

According to these sources, both Donald Trump and John Kelly barely tolerate one another at this point. They try to interact as little as possible and John Kelly has conceded that he is never going to be able to change the President's behavior or the words that he says, or even some of his most horrendous policies. So, John Kelly according to these aides has basically just said “Screw it.” He doesn't care what happens to the President and according to these people inside the White House, he doesn't even care anymore if Trump gets himself impeached. Now that's a pretty big statement to make, and I am hoping that these sources inside the White House talking to Politico, I'm hoping that they've actually heard John Kelly say that, because that is exactly what Donald Trump is doing at this point. Every time he goes out there and talks to the press, talks to a business group, gives any kind of speech, he is giving information about one, how unstable he is mentally and two, about how terrified he is of these investigations. We know that there was no bias in the decision to launch the investigation into Donald Trump. The IG report last week explicitly said that. I know Republicans are still saying that “Comey should be locked up, and Hillary should be locked up and that there was bias,” but those idiots haven't read the actual report that says, “Nope, no bias in the investigation.” So, John Kelly has decided at this point, I can't handle this, I can't reign this mad-man in. I'm just gonna let him go out there and sink his own ship by repeating these lies about the investigation, by enacting these horrible policies, and by basically acting like a crazy person anytime the cameras are rolling. So, good for you John Kelly, I'm actually more proud of you for staying in this position with a screw-it attitude, then I would be if you'd quit. Because if you quit, Donald Trump might get somebody in there to be his Chief of Staff that might actually try to stop him again, that might reign him back, but not you. You've decided that you're gonna sit there and have a front row seat for this Donald Trump sinking ship, and for that I admire you.

Canada Gives Trump The Middle Finger With Massive Tariffs On US Goods
 
03:18
Canada is backing down from Donald Trump’s trade war, and they’ve decided to escalate the situation by imposing massive tariffs on a new array of goods from the United States. Trump is out of his element here – he doesn’t know what he’s doing, he doesn’t even have an end goal, he just knows that he wants to try to bully the rest of the world and it is backfiring on us worse and worse every day. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://thinkprogress.org/canada-responds-to-trump-with-its-own-tariffs-c51181add3b4/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, that was in response to Donald Trump recently slapping more tariffs on Canada thinking that he was going to pressure them and muscle them out of these trade wars, and get them to cave in everything. The tariffs were also not just on Canada, they were also on goods in the European Union. In addition to all the tariffs that he's put on China and Canada, just like everybody else has done, decided to issue a massive middle finger to Donald Trump that said, "We're not going to be bullied. Instead, we're going to tax all of the crap coming out of your country." Here are some of the goods that Canada has slapped the tariffs on. In addition to aluminum and steel, they've also got whiskey, maple syrup, orange juice, lawn mowers, and ketchup. Now, here's the thing. Trump doesn't know what he's doing. He thinks that these little trade wars are the same as trying to muscle another business into selling you their company, you know? You squeeze them out of a market here, squeeze them out of one there, increase the prices that they have to pay for things to the point where it's not profitable for them to operate, so they sell to you. That's how the business world works, but here in the real world with real people and real world leaders who actually have just as much power as you, Mr. Trump, you can't do that. Trump doesn't understand that, and most of his troglodyte followers don't seem to understand that. Nobody wins in a trade war. There is no good outcome for any side in these processes, because what's happening right now is that thousands of people in this country have already lost their job, and many more are on the verge of being laid off because of these tariffs. It's 100% because of these tariffs. Businesses are saying that they're about to close. Harley-Davidson has already made the decision to ship their jobs oversees because of these tariffs. We are going to see more of that, and again, I cannot say this enough, this has been going on for less than a month and a half, and we've already seen these very dire consequences of it. Can you imagine how bad things are going to be by the time the mid-terms actually roll around, how many newly unemployed people there are going to be? How many jobs this country will have lost? How much economic activity will have been lost? How many more dips in the stock market we're going to have? It's all 100% because of Donald Trump. Congress tried to step in, the democrats tried to step in and pass legislation that would prevent Donald Trump from imposing these tariffs. Republicans blocked it, didn't even allow it to come to a vote. So yeah, Donald Trump owns this. Democrats tried to fix this. That is the biggest most important piece of information that every person in this country needs to take with them when they head to the polls this coming November.

Trump FURIOUS After Catching Melania Watching CNN
 
02:49
It is no secret that Donald Trump absolutely HATES CNN, but according to recent reports, the President grew furious when he saw that Melania’s TV on Air Force One was tuned into CNN. Its one thing to dislike the network that isn’t fawning all over you, but it is completely psychotic to go into a blind rage when you find your wife watching the channel.

According to the report by the New York Times, the TV in question happened to be Melania's television. But rather than flying into a blind rage at Melania, staff members, in their emails, say that he actually took his rage out on them, which caused, "A bit of a stir on Air Force One." According to these employees, they have made it standard practice to go ahead, and put whatever TV is near Trump on Fox News, but this happened to be Melania's TV, she wanted to watch, I don't know, something that wasn't just pro-Trump propaganda for a few minutes, and so she tuned it to CNN. Donald Trump, and they actually mention this in their article about him, wants to live in his own little world, where nothing that he does is wrong. And the only world that exists like that is Fox News. He cannot handle anything outside of that alternative reality bubble, in which he loves to live. That also helps explain why yesterday, he kicked a CNN reporter out of the White House, and then they forbade her from coming back, and covering an event later in the day. They kicked CNN out and said, "You can't come back today." Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied about what actually happened. All the other reporters in that room denied what Sarah Huckabee Sanders said had happened, which was that the reporter wouldn't leave, she was being rude and unruly. Nobody else in that room saw that. But nonetheless, Donald Trump has a very real bias, and just downright anger towards CNN. It doesn't quite make any sense. There's lots of reasons to hate CNN, you can hate them for drumming up wars with Iraq and Afghanistan. Right now they're beating the drums of war against Russia. Plenty of things to hate that network about, but their coverage of Donald Trump and the crap that he's pulling every single day isn't one of them. On that particular issue, they've been astoundingly accurate. Not only in exposing what Trump is doing as President, but also in showing how stupid the people that he has surrounded himself with, in the White House, truly are. And that's why Donald Trump hates them, and that's why he is furious that his wife had the audacity to watch that network.

Fox Hosts STUNNED After Trump Sides With Putin Over US
 
03:24
It takes a lot to send a Fox News host into a stunned silence, but Donald Trump managed to do exactly that after his meeting with Vladimir Putin on Monday. Fox hosts Stuart Varney and Neil Cavuto were in a complete state of disbelief that the President said he sided with Putin over US intelligence agencies, and Cavuto even went as far as to blame the President’s weak and timid behavior on jet lag. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/maybe-jet-lag-fox-news-neil-cavuto-struggles-defend-trumps-submissive-behavior-putin-summit/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

But those of us who've been watching Donald Trump's presidency and reporting on it every single day since the man was elected fully expected that to happen. The people who didn't expect that to happen were the people on Fox News. Take a look at their immediate reaction following that interaction between Trump and Putin, here it is. What it ended, it's up five. Our time is up but there's a lot more on this from Neil Cavuto, sir, it's yours. This has got to be the most incredible thing I've ever witnessed. Mm-hmm (affirmative). You talk about Vladimir Putin now saying, "I've got an idea comrade. We'll exchange information from each side's accused hackers, we'll exchange information." So sort of like the fireman after he caused the fire saying, "I'm going to help you look into the fire." Wow. It was not a very forceful presentation from President Trump, with Putin standing right next to him. I don't know. Not forceful at all. I'll give the benefit of the doubt to maybe jet lag and time differences, but holy tamoly. All right. You know, it really takes a lot to stun a Fox News host into absolute silence or just stammering incomprehensible words, but Trump managed to do it with his meeting there with Putin. Neil Cavuto could not figure out what to say, "Maybe it's jet lag, I don't know." To his credit though, Cavuto did come back later on in the day and he kind of attacked Donald Trump as very weak, very timid, he let Vladimir Putin run circles around him. So it is nice that he finally gathered the words and the courage to say, "Yeah, the president really screwed up." And Cavuto and Stuart Varney aren't alone. Tuesday morning the folks at Fox and Friends also very timidly said, "Well, the president needs to come out and clarify those statements and basically take them back and say something better instead." Of all the hosts on Fox News, the only two that really didn't go after the president were the two obvious ones, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson. Everybody else there seemed to understand what was happening and why it is such a danger to the United States of America, but Hannity and Tucker didn't want to criticize the president because they are the two people who got exclusive interviews with Donald Trump after everything was over and they didn't want to jeopardize that. But everybody else, from the viewers, to the hosts, to our elected officials of both parties, to people on both sides of the aisle throughout this country, they understood what just happened there. Calls for Trump's impeachment have reached a fever pitch in the last 24 hours alone because of his performance at that summit, trashing the United States and instead siding with the word of Vladimir Putin.

Trump-Supporting Business Owner Lays Off Staff, Begs Democrats To Save His Business
 
03:50
The New York Times recently ran an interview with George Skarich, one of the leading producer of nails in the United States. Skarich supported Donald Trump, but now that Trump’s tariffs have caused his sales to plummet and forced him to lay off hundreds of employees, he’s now begging Democrats to step in and help him. He can’t say he wasn’t warned this kind of thing would happen, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/393793-nail-supplier-who-voted-for-trump-blames-him-for-layoffs-asks?amp&__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And the answer to that question is, "I don't really know." This past week, a new report from the New York Times came out that told the story of an ardent Trump supporter who has now found his business absolutely destroyed because of Donald Trump's tariffs. This isn't just a local farmer. This isn't a small business owner. This actually happens to be the vice president of the largest nail manufacturing company here in the United States, George Skarich. Skarich was interviewed by the New York Times about Donald Trump's tariffs, especially on steel and aluminum that are effecting his nail business. Now he says he's had to lay off hundreds of workers, I think upwards of 500 of his own workers, and he one hundred percent blames Donald Trump and his tariffs. Skarich is a guy who absolutely, one hundred percent supported Donald Trump's election. He voted for him, he got duped and now that Trump's policies are absolutely destroying his business, he actually said that he is out there begging Democrats to come help him out. Specifically, he has said he is lobbying Democrat Claire McCaskill to do something about Donald Trump's tariffs to help save his business. Now listen, I have absolute sympathy for the 500 people or however many people have been laid off from this company, I do. But for a person like Skarich? Absolutely not. You know, I am so sick and tired of hearing these sob stories of people who voted for Donald Trump and then when he did exactly what he said he was gonna do, they start freaking out and say, "Oh my God! This is gonna ruin my business, my life. How am I going to feed my family?" You should have thought of that before you voted for him, idiot. It's not like people weren't out there warning you every, single day. I mean hell, it's not like the President didn't warn you he was going to do these things. I mean to his credit, Donald Trump has actually kept a lot of his promises. It's just that his promises were absolutely horrible for policy here in the United States. Did you not think he was going to follow through with it? Because, he did and now you're screwed. Well, I should say nailed in this case. But nonetheless, I have no more sympathy for these people. You put yourself in this position. If we can help you, we'll help you. That doesn't mean I feel sympathy for you, but I do believe that when somebody's down on their luck they should be able to get a helping hand. That's never gonna change, but that's the difference between Democrats and Republicans. This guy's out there begging for somebody, a Democrat, to come save his ass after he realized that his own voting habits and his party affiliation have absolutely destroyed his company and destroyed the lives of up to 500 people who used to work for him. This is gonna continue happening. We're gonna hear more stories about this. Now, we do have some stories right now. Raw Story had a great one this morning talking about a farmer who's losing tons and tons of money. His farm is going under because of Trump's tariffs, but he still says, "If he could go back and do it all, he'd vote for Donald Trump again even if it meant his own financial ruin." That's why it's very hard to have any sympathy for these Trump supporters who are finding their lives destroyed by the man that they put in office.

Trump Voter Says She’s “Ashamed” Of Her Vote After Daughter-in-Law Gets Deported
 
02:53
A Trump supporter by the name of Shirley Stegall is now willing to admit that she is “ashamed” of not only voting for Donald Trump, but that he has made her ashamed of her country. The reason for her sudden change of heart? The fact that her daughter-in-law, who happened to be an undocumented immigrant, was recently deported.

But this weeks is a little bit different than ones we've seen in the past. The story of Lettie Stigall is one that not most people in this country obviously know about. Lettie Stigall was an undocumented immigrant here in the United States who was married to a US citizen. Lettie was deported not that long ago and is not allowed back in the United States at least for the time being. Her and her husband also had a 17 year old daughter who is a US citizen. Well as it turns out, Lettie's mother-in-law, Shirley Stigall actually voted for and supported Donald Trump in 2016. But now according to a very lengthy article in the Associated Press, Shirley says that not only is she ashamed of her vote, but she is also ashamed of her country for the first time in her life. And this isn't meant to say welcome to the other side, thanks for finally opening your eyes. This is a real world story about how many consequences can come from something as simple as your vote. That's the real problem here. The people who supported Donald Trump don't even understand how much they're screwing over themselves, screwing over their families, screwing over their friends and everyone else in their lives. Why? All because they were motivated to vote for a con man because they were easily conned. This woman, Shirley Stigall, saw first hand what's happens when you put a racist in the Oval Office as she watched her daughter in law, the mother of her granddaughter, get packed up and shipped to another country possibly to never be seen again. Now they do video chat but whether or not they'll ever be able to reunite as an actual family remains unclear at this point. And this is not a unique story. This is happening all over the country right now. We also have actual US citizens, people who went through the naturalization process, are currently being threatened of being stripped of their citizenship and deported back to where they came from. That's a new program that this administration is working on. So yeah we have a very real problem here in the United States. And apparently the administration isn't just satisfied enough deporting undocumented immigrants because now they're actually going after legal US citizens. And every Trump voter in this country needs to understand that they are responsible for this.

Fox News Host Says Obama To Blame For Rob Porter’s Wife Beating
 
04:02
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro said this weekend that General John Kelly, Trump’s Chief of Staff, deserves absolutely no blame for his handling of the Rob Porter wife beating scandal, but if we need someone to blame, we should just go ahead and blame Obama. Pirro was 100% serious about blaming Obama for Porter’s behavior, but she failed to explain why this was Obama’s fault. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/02/fox-news-host-jeanine-pirro-blames-barack-obama-rob-porter-wife-beating-scandal/   Ring of Fire needs your help!

This past weekend on Fox News, Judge Jeanine Pirro decided to take on the Rob Porter scandal and come to the defense of John Kelly's handling of the Rob Porter scandal, but more importantly, she told us exactly who was to blame for this entire Rob Porter beating-his-wife story. Take a look. For everyone who's looking for someone to blame, chill out. You want to blame someone? Blame the batterer. He doesn't walk around with a scarlet letter or a sign on his forehead that says, "I beat women." He is cunning and clever, presenting himself as a charming individual who's a Rhodes Scholar with a Harvard degree. You want to stop a four-star general who is running the White House, who believes in chain of command, who makes a decision within 40 minutes, because you hate Donald Trump? Find another scapegoat. You might want to look at the last president. That's right, ladies and gentlemen. When all else fails, blame Obama. Rob Porter beat the hell out of two ex-wives, and Jeanine Pirro, the woman who was driving 119 miles an hour in a residential area recently and was pulled over and ticketed heavily for that, the woman whose husband went to prison for fraud, believes that Obama is somehow to blame for Rob Porter, the Trump appointee staff secretary beating the hell out of his two ex-wives. Meanwhile, John Kelly reacted and solved the issue, according to Pirro in that clip, in 40 minutes. Really? I know, Jeanine Pirro, you are a judge, so I have to assume at some point you went to school, at least college, probably law school. I know sometimes judges can get appointments even without going to law school, but we'll leave it at I'm assuming you went. For somebody who went through that much education, you are dumb as a brick. John Kelly knew what Rob Porter did as far back as September, when the FBI came back and said, "Yeah, we can't give him a security clearance because of X, Y, and Z," and X and Y happen to be beat the hell out of this woman and then Y was beat the hell out of this woman. Z was got a restraining order filed against him because of beating the hell out of those two women. He knew about it. It wasn't 40 minutes. It was five months. Fox News has absolutely gone off the rails with their level of insanity since Trump took office. This woman, Judge Jeanine, trying to blame Obama, which, for the record, she didn't even explain why we should blame Obama. She just said that we should. I would love to hear the circular logic that she used in her own head to come up with that point and say maybe we should blame the past administration for this guy that Donald Trump defends. I don't even know anymore. Honest to God, we've hit a point with Fox News where their level of incompetency and the lies coming out of that network are just too much to even comprehend. It may not even be worth the time anymore to go through and explain why they're lying, because these lies are getting more and more outrageous by the day, which is a sign that this network is getting more and more desperate to continuously defend a president that even they understand at this point is probably not going to make it to the end of his first term if these investigations go the way that pretty much everybody thinks they're going to go.

Ex-White House Stenographer Says Trump Doesn’t Like Being Recorded Because Truth Bothers Him
 
03:55
Beck Dorey-Stein, a former White House stenographer for both Obama and Trump, says in a new op-ed that Trump doesn’t like having his conversations recorded in any way – whether it be on tape or in writing – because he has a very severe aversion to the truth. This isn’t something that most of us didn’t already know, but it does give us an even better look into the window of Trump’s mind. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.nytimes.com/2018/07/17/opinion/trump-recording-press-news.html Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

This op-ed is much better than most of the recent op-eds that New York Times have been running about why we should just try to get along, or why liberals should love Brad Cavanagh. No, no, no, no. Beck Dorey-Stein actually has a great op-ed, because she used to be a White House stenographer for both Barack Obama and Donald Trump, and she explains why Donald Trump seems to have such an aversion to reality. According to Dorey-Stein, Donald Trump did not like for her to write down the things that he said, even though that was her job, because Donald Trump doesn't like to be quoted. He doesn't like his own words to eventually be used against him, which again is ironic, coming from a man who tweets his every single thought, but admittedly, those tweets do always end up coming back to haunt him. Dorey-Stein points out that previous presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, they loved stenographers, and even the presidents before that. Why? Because it held them accountable and it allowed them to avoid being misquoted by the press. She was there to capture their every single word, whether it was during an interview, or whether it was during a meeting. She was there to write it down, as were the other stenographers, but Trump made sure that they weren't around, that they couldn't record everything that he said. Hope Hicks at one point, according to Dorey-Stein, actually took Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly when they were in the middle of an interview out of the room with the stenographer so they could go into the Oval Office and have some privacy so that she couldn't know what the two men were talking about. She says it all boils down to this. The reason Trump doesn't like this, is because his biggest adversary as president of the United States is the truth. That makes perfect sense. And again, this isn't anything shocking that most of us didn't know, we all know that Donald Trump lies all the time. We know he has an aversion to the truth, but this puts a different spin on it, right? We didn't necessarily know that Donald Trump doesn't like to be confronted with his own words. We didn't know that Donald Trump and his staff went out of the way to make sure that the stenographers were not in the same room as them so that nothing could be recorded, and we didn't know that Donald Trump was so terrified of reality that he was actually willing to hide from it. That is what this story's about. That's what Beck Dorey-Stein's op-ed is about. It's about a man who is not mentally stable enough to serve as the president of the United States. His actions for the past few weeks alone have proved that, with what he did at the G7 summit, what he did at the NATO summit, what he did in Britain, and more importantly, what he did in Helsinki, Finland. Donald Trump is not the man that we need to be running this country. We need anybody else, somebody else. It doesn't matter gender, race, religion, anybody else would do a better job than Donald Trump, because I think at least anybody else, no matter how horrible they are as a republican politician, they at least can sometimes understand the truth when it slaps them in the face. That's something that Donald Trump is incapable of doing, and that is what makes him quite possibly one of the worst people imaginable to ever serve as president of the United States.

Paul Ryan Is Hellbent On Destroying America Before He Retires
 
03:22
House Republicans, led by the soon-to-be retiring Paul Ryan, quietly unveiled their 2019 budget this year which includes TRILLIONS of dollars in cuts to social safety net programs that help keep millions of Americans afloat. It seems like Paul Ryan is determined to ruin this country before he leaves office, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link - https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/06/19/morally-bankrupt-after-tax-cuts-richest-house-gop-unveils-54-trillion-attack-nations Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And in those last few months this guy has in office, he is hell-bent on absolutely destroying everything good about the United States of America. You see earlier this week, while nobody was paying attention, the House of Representatives, the Republican's in the House of Representatives I should say, released their 2019 proposed budget. And do you know what that budget calls for? 5.4 trillion dollars in domestic spending cuts, 5.4 trillion dollars, one and a half trillion of those dollars are gonna come in cuts to Medicaid. Right off the top, one and a half trillion dollars from Medicaid, you know, because poor people don't need health insurance, I guess. Right? Not when we've got the wealthy getting one and a half trillion, the same exact amount worth of tax cuts. Paul Ryan and his Republican colleagues in Congress, let's give them all credit, they literally stole money to take away health care from poor people in this country to give the wealthy elite a tax break. Poor people will die, that's not hyperbole, we know what happens when people lose health insurance in this country. They can't afford to go to the doctor, they can't afford medication and therefore they die. Paul Ryan is willing to kill people in this country, because they didn't have enough money to benefit from his tax cut plan. But that's not everything. We've got four billion dollars in cuts coming to Social Security, we got over 500 billion dollars in cuts coming to Medicare, the healthcare program for senior citizens, and then the rest of it is gonna come from other programs. At least on Wednesday of this week, they voted down cuts to the Children's Health Insurance Program, thank God that enough people stood up to protect that. But let's not forget what's happening here folks. It's easy to get distracted by Donald Trump and his insanity, but no major media outlets are talking about these stories. They're not talking about the fact that Republican's led by Paul Ryan, are willing to let poor people die because they want to give their donor's a tax break. This is Paul Ryan's legacy, but you know what else is his legacy? Every person that loses their health insurance and goes to an early grave. We should be putting on headstones, “This is Paul Ryan's fault,” because it will be. If these budget cuts go through, if Paul Ryan has his way, if his little dream comes true of destroying the Federal Government before he leaves, then that needs to be marked on every gravestone in this country. Of somebody who died from losing their health insurance, because they were just too darn poor for Paul Ryan to care about them.

Fox News Hosts PANIC After Realizing They Booked The WRONG Democrat
 
03:44
The hosts on Fox News aren’t known for being the brightest of the bunch, and recently when they thought they had booked a pro-ICE Democrat, they got the shock of their lives to find out that they booked the WRONG Democrat who wanted to talk about how horrible Trump is on immigration. They abruptly ended the segment in the most awkward way possible once they realized their mistake. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.alternet.org/watch-these-fox-news-hosts-realize-they-booked-wrong-democrat-and-panic-she-rips-trump?amp&__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

But, a few days ago, on a show called Fox and Friends First, which is the Fox and Friends that they show before the real idiots take to the couch. The folks on Fox and Friends First, proved that they could be just as dumb as the main course of Fox and Friends. Take a look at what happened when they thought they had found the perfect non-progressive Democrat to join their program. And joining us now, that candidate, the only Democrat on stage to support ICE, Ann Kirkpatrick. Thank you for joining us. We appreciate it. Tell us why you do support ICE. Good morning. I'm actually here to speak directly to Donald Trump. I feel that what's happening at the border is wrong. I'm a mother of four, and I believe that separating kids from their parents is illegal and inhumane. I'm actually Barbara A. L'Italien, I'm a state senator representing a large immigrant community. I'm running for congress in Massachusets. I keep thinking about what we're putting parents through. Imagining how terrifying that must be for those families. Imagining how it would know if I would ever see my kids again. We have to stop abducting children, and ripping them from their parents arms. Uh, okay- Stop putting kids in cages. You want- And stop making three year olds defend themselves in court. You have to stop- But that practice has stopped at this point Ms. Kirkpatrick. Right? Score political points with your base. One family's have been reunited, kids have been reunited with their families. Again, my name is Barbara A. L'Italien and I refuse to believe that our only options- Yeah. Okay. Are open borders or traumatizing- Who is this? Who is this? Okay. Okay. All right. Here's the thing. The person they were trying to book is, a woman by the name of Ann Kirkpatrick, who about a month ago at a campaign event, said that she supports ICE the way it is right now, and that we do not need any additional oversight for it. Now, pretty much anybody who's been paying attention to what's happening with immigration understands that, that is categorically false. You can support it if you want to, but to say that they don't even need any extra oversight. Yeah. You're obviously pandering to centrist republicans at that point. Nobody on the left thinks they don't need more oversight. And that's who Fox and Friends first thought they were getting for their program. But instead, do to, I don't know if it's producer error, if it's host error in communications, either way, they were absolutely panicked, when the woman they brought on managed to actually get about a minutes worth of attacks on Donald Trump in. T The funniest thing to me though, about that entire clip is, how at the end, they just cut her off. Didn't even say goodbye or thank you. They realized somebody screwed up, so they cut her feed completely before they'd even taken her off the screen. And then, just that, "Yeah. Yeah. Well what, yeah, go to break. Why not." Everybody got to see what idiots you were. You were not even prepared to be able to speak to this other woman. You could have rolled with it, you could have tried to make counter argument, but you were pulled off your game. You didn't have a script ready in that teleprompter for something different, and your simple little minds couldn't comprehend what you weren't already coached to say.

Trump Is Toast – President Took 4 Hours To Answer 2 Questions During Mueller Testimony Prep
 
03:01
According to The Wall Street Journal, Donald Trump is struggling through the mock testimony prep for a potential interview with Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. The paper reports that during a recent session, the President was only able to answer TWO questions in the span of FOUR HOURS because he just rambled on and on. This is not good news for the President, especially since Mueller has rejected the administration’s request to allow Trump to submit his answers in writing. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-lawyers-aim-to-decide-by-may-17-whether-president-testifies-in-mueller-probe-1525727774?redirect=amp#click=https://t.co/Jb9mMh75F7 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

As most people remember, one of the things that Giuliani came on to the Donald Trump legal team to do was to get this Mueller investigation over with, done with, out of the way. So he asked Mueller, "Is it cool if we just get the questions from you and then Trump just writes down his answers and we send 'em back to you?" And this week, Mueller said, "Yeah, that's not ever going to happen. I wanna talk to the guy." So the Trump Administration has now said, "Well, we'll let know by May 17th whether or not the president's gonna sit down with you." And here's why that's important. Because they've actually been doing mock ... ah, you can't call it mock trial, but like a mock testimony with Donald Trump in practice at the White House and things aren't going so well for the president. In fact, according to reports, a recent ... a Q&A with the president during one of these mock prep sessions, it took him over 4 hours to answer 2 questions. And this isn't coming from some liberal newspaper. This is actually coming from The Wall Street Journal, a Donald Trump-supporting news organization owned by Newscorp, who also owns Fox News. They are letting us know how horrible the prep is going for the president. Because here's the thing. In any kind of legal questioning, the more you talk, the more you say, the longer it takes you to answer questions, the more likely it is you're going to give up information about yourself that's going to implicate you in some kind of crime, or if you just keep talking and talking, the more likely it is you're gonna end up saying something that's not true or something that contradicts something you already said — especially when you're dealing with a guy like Trump who loves to contradict himself. In fact, he's frequently done it in the span of 280 characters in his own tweets. So just imagine what would happen if this man spoke nonstop for 2 hours, how many contradictions would be in there? And that's why Giuliani wanted to have him submit those written questions. Donald Trump's not gonna write something for 2 hours. No. He's gonna give it short, sweet, brief and answer the question and move on. But he can't do that in person because Trump thinks that he is always the smartest guy in the room, no matter what room he walks into. And the fact is, he's not. Probably not even in the top 80% of smartest people in any room ever, even if he walked into a preschool. Nonetheless, they're gonna have to make a decision. And as Mueller himself has said, if Trump's not gonna go and testify willingly, then they're just gonna issue a subpoena and make this dumbass walk in there and speak nonstop and make sure the recorders are rolling and somebody's writing it all down, because that man will definitely say something that's going to ruin his future.

Germans Want Trump’s Ambassador Kicked Out Of Their Country
 
03:08
Politicians in Germany are wanting to remove Donald Trump’s ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, after he publicly came out and said that part of his job was to promote the conservative party in Germany. Not only are ambassadors not allowed to get involved in politics in the countries that they are sent to, but this is not Grenell’s first time meddling in the business of Germans, and now they want him gone.

Now as you'll recall, not that long ago, in fact it was actually less than 24 hours after the guy accepted the position of German ambassador, he tweeted out that the German people, German businesses need to immediately stop doing any kind of business with Iran because the US pulled out of the deal so everybody else needs to do what the US did. It pissed off a lot of people in Germany. But this week, Grenell once again managed to show that, one, he's completely incompetent and bad as his job, but, two, that he's completely insensitive as to the workings of German politics and businesses. Because Grenell came out and said that it is his job as ambassador on behalf of Donald Trump to ensure that conservative policies and conservative politicians in Germany succeed while beating back liberalism. So now a whole lot of politicians in Germany as well as German citizens are calling for Richard Grenell to be expelled from the country. He's doing such a bad job and offending so many people that they essentially want to kick him out of Germany, send him back to the United States, and send a big message to Donald Trump that, one, you can't interfere with our politics, you jerk, and, two, you don't know what you're doing as president of the United States because that's what this all comes back to. Now, we have seen pretty crappy ambassadors being appointed by both Obama and Bush before him, but we have never seen the level of incompetence that we have seen from some of the people that Donald Trump has picked and Richard Grenell is exhibit A. He admitted to the German people that he wants to interfere with their politics. That he wants to make conservative politicians succeed while making liberal politicians fail. Germany has every right to expel him from their country at this point, and I believe that they should. They need to send a message to the president that you cannot send some unqualified, know-nothing ambassador over here with the expressed intent of trying to interfere with our politics. The United States wouldn't accept it if there was a German coming to the United States to do the same, so why should the German people accept the same coming from the United States? Donald Trump doesn't know how to be president. He's not smart enough, he's not competent enough, and he's not trustworthy enough. Now we're starting to see that his level of incompetence is alienating some of our biggest allies on the planet.

Fox News TORCHES Donald Trump For His Constant Lies
 
04:32
Everyone has a breaking point, and for some of the people at Fox News, all of the craziness from the Trump White House this weeks seems to be the last straw. On Thursday evening, Fox News host Neil Cavuto issued a blistering attack on Donald Trump, pointing out countless lies that the President has told and explaining that this isn’t a very good look for Trump. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/05/watch-fox-news-neil-cavuto-spends-4-minutes-cataloging-trumps-lies-world-weary-lecture/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Thursday evening, Fox News host Neil Cavuto decided to devote more than four minutes of his show to exposing the very, very, very long list of Donald Trump's lies. Take a look at how Cavuto torches Donald Trump while at the same time trying to act like he's really not torching Donald Trump, even though he is. Take a look. So let me be clear, Mr. President, how can you drain the swamp if you're the one who keeps muddying the waters? You didn't know about that $130,000 payment to a porn star until you did. Said you knew nothing about how your former lawyer, Michael Cohen, handled this, until acknowledging today you were the guy behind the retainer payment that took care of this. You insist that money from the campaign or campaign contributions played no role in this transaction, of that you're sure. Thing is, not even 24 hours ago, sir, you couldn't recall any of this and you seemed very sure. I'm not saying you're a liar, you're president, you're busy, I'm just having a devil of a time figuring out which news is fake. Let's just say you're own words on lots of stuff give me, shall I say, lots of pause. Like the time you said the Russians didn't interfere in the 2016 election until a lot of Republicans had to remind you they did. Came back months later and you said, "Well, I never said that Russia didn't meddle in the election," when, in fact, you had, a lot. Now, none of this makes me a Never Trumper, just always confused. Like when you claimed your tax plan was the biggest in US history, when it wasn't, or that the bill you signed to make it all happen would cost you a fortune, when it turns out it is going to help make you a bigger fortune, or that your job approval numbers really aren't that bad, it's relative to other presidents at this stage, when they're actually worse than most presidents at this stage. That can change but what's weird is this pattern does not. Like the time that you said rumors of Rex Tillerson's departure at the State Department were false, until they weren't, or that your former chief of staff, Reince Priebus, wasn't going anywhere, though he was, or your economic advisor, Gary Cohn, was doing a great job until he wasn't. When you absolutely loved Steve Bannon until you didn't. Swore by Jeff Sessions, until you started swearing at Jeff Sessions. Had your legal team locked in place until it wasn't. Denied reports you were ever thinking about firing Robert Mueller, even as you now threatened getting involved at the Justice Department. Now, none of this makes you evil, but I'm sure you can understand why even your friends say these inconsistencies don't make you look good. And keep in mind, that was only about half of that entire segment. Cavuto went on to talk about all of the things that Donald Trump has lied about and presenting it in such a way that shows that we really cannot trust the president. That is what Neil Cavuto was trying to get at without having to actually say those words, because as he said in the clip you saw, he's not a Never Trumper, he's not saying that you're a horrible person, but everything that you do kind of points to those things, Mr. President. As Cavuto himself said, this isn't a good look for you, especially when the mid-terms are creeping up right around the corner and, literally, at this point, every week gets worse and worse for Donald Trump.

Protestors Prepare GIANT Baby Trump Blimp To Mock Trump In England

British protestors are planning on letting their disdain for the American president known to the world, and they are preparing to launch a 20-foot tall blimp in the shape of a giant baby version of Donald Trump – complete with diaper – in the air when Trump touches down for his visit.

It had been planned a couple times, it had been canceled a couple times, postponed a few times, but now the official visit is set for July 13th. When Donald Trump touches down in the United Kingdom he is going to be greeted by a 20 foot tall blimp that is actually an image of a baby Donald Trump with a diaper. That is the form of protest that British protesters have decided is the best way to show Donald Trump that he is not welcome in their country and that they do not respect him. This to me is one of the greatest forms of protest imaginable, because the people over there seem to understand Donald Trump in a way that a lot of the folks in the United States don't quite get. Here's an exact quote, this is from Leo [Murray 00:01:07], he is the guy who organized all this, got the blimp together, raised the money to do it. This is what he says, and this is so spot on, "Moral outrage has no effect on Trump because he has no shame. He's immune to it but he has a tremendously fragile ego, so ridicule is an effective form of protest. So we want to make sure that he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him." That's what you have to do. That's how you resist. That's how you fight back against this man. You can't try to show him the truth, you can't try to show him that his policies are destroying the United States, that they're wrecking the economy, that they're destroying families, that they're destroying the environment because he doesn't care. To be honest he probably doesn't quite understand it, but what he does understand is when people are making fun of him. That is exactly what the Brits are going to do here. They're going to make sure that he gets off that plane and where ever he goes, that there is a giant 20 foot baby Trump following him around the city, and they've made sure that if they can't get the permit to fly the blimp, that they have already got a barge ready and they're just going to have it on the barge. So there is no way that the president is not going to see this thing. They're going to make sure that he knows what the rest of the world thinks of him and it's going to be interesting for Donald because one of the reasons he'd been putting off this trip was because he didn't want to be met by protestors, so they've up it. They may not be in the streets, I'm sure there'll probably be a lot of them though but they don't have to be at this point because the biggest form of protest imaginable is going to be hovering over Donald Trump's head through his entire visit.

Watch Rudy Giuliani FREAK OUT On CNN When Busted Lying “This is Really UNFAIR!”
 
03:18
CNN’s Chris Cuomo decided to use Rudy Giuliani’s own words against him by showing an old clip of Giuliani saying that the President must appear if he gets subpoenaed. Giuliani promptly freaked out on the air, saying that airing clips of him from the past was “really unfair.” Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/05/unfair-rudy-giuliani-explodes-cnns-cuomo-plays-clip-saying-presidents-must-obey-subpoenas/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Friday morning, he made the decision to go on Chris Cuomo's show, where he insisted that you cannot subpoena a president, a sitting president. Well, unfortunately, for Giuliani, Chris Cuomo and the team at CNN was actually well-aware of comments that Giuliani had made on Charlie Rose's show in the past. When confronted with those previous comments that contradict his current comments, Giuliani absolutely flipped out. Take a look. You got to comply. You got to go. You can't. You can't. I never heard of the subpoena for the president's person. Well you said exactly that. No, no. He went on to say- Chris, let's distinguish between a subpoena for documents ... that takes the president out of the Oval Office, and puts him in front of a grand jury or hearing. Can't do it. Can't do the second. You can do the first. President- But you never made that distinction before. Well I never, never, never occurred to me they would try to subpoena the president. That's exactly what was going on in 1998, but people are going to say I'm making this up. And they list it, and they list it, and they list- Here's Charlie Rose with you in the interview and you tell me what you meant. Oh, come on. What, you don't want to hear it? It's not even relevant. If the president is asked to testify, subpoenad to testify before a grand jury- That's really unfair. What you're doing right now is extremely unfair. No. I'm giving you a chance to explain it. And it says [crosstalk 00:01:24]. [crosstalk 00:01:24] the reason people don't come on this show. Oh stop. But with all that- Not going to do it. You got to do it. I mean you don't have a choice. That promoting of Avenatti for ambulance chasing. What happens if Robert Mueller subpoenas the president? What does that have to do with this? Because they're all trying to bring Trump into that, and he's not involved in it, Chris. Look- So in the mind of a guy like Rudy Giuliani, showing a clip of things you had said in the past is unfair. Using your own legal advice or opinions against you is somehow wrong? Here's what's funny about the whole clip, though. When you watch it, originally you see that Giuliani is still talking as they're showing the old clip, but there's no audio coming from him. What I'm assuming is that the producers decided to pot-down his mic so that they could just see his facial reactions when he hears what he had said, which contradicts what he was currently trying to say. But when they saw that he was absolutely freaking out, somebody in that control room made the decision to turn his mic back on so that everybody watching could see Giuliani freaking out and claiming that his past statements, this video of him from 20 years ago, was somehow unfair. Now, you know what's unfair, Giuliani? You going out there in the media and lying to everyone. You've been doing it all week long. Hell, you've been doing it for decades, but you've really hit a new low in this past week with all of the false statements that you are out there saying to the media. I guarantee you after this, and Giuliani hinted at it himself, he's probably not going to come back on CNN. Giuliani's going to stick to the more friendly waters of FOX News, where they won't confront him about his lies. They're not going to show old clips of him proving himself wrong. They're just going to sit there with a smile, and let Giuliani says whatever he wants to to defend the President.

Trump’s Trade War Is About To Cost Us Another 100,000 American Jobs
 
03:50
This video was originally released under our Early Access tier on Patreon. Find out how to unlock Early Access at our Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire According to a report from the Auto Care Association, Donald Trump’s trade wars are about to cost the US economy around 100,000 jobs in the auto industry alone. These jobs include direct manufacturing, parts distributors, and countless other cuts throughout the chain of production. Trump doesn’t understand what he’s doing, and that makes his decisions far more dangerous, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.ajot.com/news/study-finds-over-100000-industry-jobs-at-risk-with-tariffs-on-imported-auto-parts Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Last Friday, in comments submitted to the US Department of Commerce, the AutoCare Association warned this administration that as many as 100,000 jobs just in the auto industry are about to be lost because of Donald Trump's tariffs. 100,000 American jobs are going to be lost possibly by the end of the year if Donald Trump does not stop with these ridiculous tariffs that other countries are now instituting retaliatory tariffs on, and it's screwing over workers in every sector in this country. But as for the automobile manufacturers, and everybody else along the supply and distribution chains, we're talking about job losses and obviously manufacturing, because steel and aluminum are going to become far more expensive, auto parts dealers, car maintenance places, your local Pep Boys might have to lay off people because they can't afford the parts from the distributors from the manufacturers, et cetera, et cetera. See, here's the thing though. All along that supply chain there, that's where those 100,000 jobs are going to come from, and that's what the AutoCare Association is obviously worried about, but it doesn't stop there, because do you know what happens in a city of let's say 300,000 people when 5,000 people lose their jobs, when 10,000 people lose their jobs? That is hundreds of thousands of dollars in economic activity lost in that area. Do you know what happens after that? There's more layoffs in other areas. Suddenly people don't have money to go out to eat, so restaurants have to lay off their servers. Then suddenly there's even less money going around in the economy. That's how it happens, folks, and Donald Trump is making the situation so much worse because he doesn't understand how the overall economy works, because it's not just here in the United States, right? Especially when we're talking about tariffs, this is a global economy, a global economy that the Republicans told us was going to benefit everybody and make everything so much better. Well guess what? It's killing us here in this country now. Corporations are still making their money for the time being, but we already know some organizations are starting to lose everything because of these trade wars. I have no sympathy for the CEOs, but I do have sympathy for the average workers out there who are getting screwed over every single day, the people who are fretting right now every morning they go into work about whether or not they're going to have a job by the end of the day, because the reality is every day people are being laid off and 100% of it is related to Donald Trump's trade wars. Not every firing in this country is because of it, but if you're in one of these industries that's being hit hard by the tariffs, then yeah, you are. I want you folks to remember that. Remember that when you go to the polls this November, as you're struggling to get by because you lost your job four months ago. Remember who put you in that situation. Remember the response from the Republicans who wouldn't let the Democrats bring legislation to the floor to even debate about how to handle these tariffs. It wasn't the Democrats who put you in this situation. It was the Republicans, and I'm willing to bet that by the time midterms roll around, if these trade wars are still going on, that 100,000 job loss number is going to look like small potatoes compared to what's coming.

Trump Admin LIES To UN, Says Poverty In America Doesn’t Actually Exist
 
04:36
According to the Trump administration, the number of people living in extreme poverty in the United States is so low that it statistically doesn’t even exist. This claim came about from a recent UN report showing that more than 18 million US citizens are languishing in extreme poverty, but now the government is simply saying that these people don’t actually exist. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/news/wonk/wp/2018/06/25/trump-team-rebukes-u-n-saying-it-overestimates-extreme-poverty-in-america-by-18-million-people/?__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

So last Friday the administration fought back and they told the UN Human Rights Council that extreme poverty actually doesn't exist in the United States at all. That's what they said. They said that less than 250,000 people in the US are living in extreme poverty, which would be .08%, which statistically would mean it does not exist. The Trump administration is trying to act like there are not eighteen and a half million people in this country living in extreme poverty, unsure of how they're going to survive from day to day. Now the UN based their numbers on income, on census data. You know, things that actually matter. The Trump administration got their 250,000 person number from the conservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation, and where did The Heritage Foundation get it? Well, basically they made it up. They took estimates of how many people they think are living on less than $4 per day in this country and they came up with 250,000. That's literally the math that they used. There were no hard statistics. There was no hard data. They just kind of guessed and made up an arbitrary number, $4 a day, as extreme poverty, and a quarter of a million, end of the discussion. So that's what the Trump administration actually went to the UN and told them. They said UN, you are lying about eighteen and a half million. Our number right here that I just wrote on a piece of paper says 250,000. That's not how it works. But more importantly, it shows that this administration, one, is not taking the issue of extreme poverty seriously and, two, doesn't give a damn about the people that put them in power. Because if you look at maps, you look at where this extreme poverty is, the worst state in the country is Alabama, you know, all of those hard-core liberals in Alabama, right? No. Those are Trump supporters. The rest of them are in that so-called fly over country, the mid-west, who also happen to be Trump supporters and Republicans. Donald Trump is denying that these people even exist, and yet they somehow think that they, the forgotten majority they call themselves, are being protected by Donald Trump, that he's going to take care of them, that he cares about them. I mean do you people understand he literally had his people go to the UN and say that you don't exist? You think he's got a plan to fix things? You think he's got an idea to make the economy any better or your lives any better? Because he doesn't. He wants you to not exist, and I'm not just talking about on paper. He wishes people like you weren't in this country. He would never associate with someone of your status, and I don't mean that to be offensive to you. I've been there, trust me. But people like Donald Trump don't understand it. They don't know what it's like. They don't know what it's like to go to the grocery store and try to spend $8 but have your debit card declined. That has happened to me before. It's happened to a lot of people in this country.

Jared Kushner And Ivanka Trump Vanish As Investigations Close In
 
02:21
During a recent segment on MSNBC, the hosts and guests mused about the fact that Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump appear to have “gone into hiding” as the numerous investigations into the pair seem to be closing in. This is fairly accurate, considering that the two have been out of the public eye for their longest stretch since joining this administration. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/04/kids-gone-underground-jared-kushner-ivanka-trump-hiding-mueller-nears-oval-office/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

They were musing amongst themselves about, where have the Trump kids gone? Where is Ivanka Trump? Where is her husband, Jared Kushner? Nobody seems to have had any real reports of those two doing anything in the last few weeks, ever since all of the investigations into them began kind of closing in. Not to mention the fact, that Jared Kushner has basically been MIA ever since he had his security clearance revoked. They've brought up some good points in that. Really, when you get to thinking about it, where the hell are those two? We know that Ivanka herself is under separate investigations, that do not involve her husband. We know that the investigations into Jared Kushner, and his companies dealings, and fraudulent paperwork in New York, we know that that investigation is heating up by the day. We also know that Jared Kushner is squarely in the cross hairs of Robert Mueller, not to mention the IRS, and FBI investigations into Jared Kushner as well. I think Ivanka's investigation's actually coming from the FBI as well. So, where are they? What happened to these two? What happened to all of the really best people that Donald Trump was going to hire to run his administration? These are members of his own family, that he has reportedly been trying to get rid of for some time now. He wants his Chief of Staff, John Kelly, to work along with him on that. But, where are they? It's kind of hard to fire somebody if you can't find them. Now, I don't think that they're actually hiding out in the closet in the White House, or avoiding phone calls, turning their phone off, or just disappearing out into the wilderness. I think they're somewhere around there, meandering slowly through the White House, wondering how in the hell they're going to fight off all of these allegations coming against them at rapid fire rates. But, I do think that, as these investigations continue, we're probably going to see even less of Jared, and of Ivanka, than we currently are. They're going to disappear, and hopefully, eventually, at the end of all this, the two of them are going to be disappearing into a prison cell.

Fox News Tried To Attack Medicare For All, Instead Showed How Much People Love It
 
03:56
A recent Fox News poll gave the network an unexpected result. They were hoping they could show that most Americans don’t want a Medicare for All healthcare plan in the US, but instead found that nearly three-quarters of respondents really like the idea and don’t care about the costs. This is the second time this week that right wingers have gotten their bottoms handed to them on this issue, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.commondreams.org/news/2018/08/01/fox-friends-poll-designed-discredit-medicare-all-explodes-their-face Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

We all know that earlier this week the Koch brothers, a group that they fund, put out a study that showed that, wow, this thing was going to have a 32.6 trillion dollar price tag over the next 10 years. And the same study admitted that that's actually two trillion dollars less than what we already pay now as a country. So, their own study showed that this would save us money. So, knowing that and everybody jumped on that, the Koch brothers looked ridiculous. Bernie Sanders actually thanked them for putting it out and showing that it saved us money. Fox News tried to get people back on the side of Medicare for all is evil, so they put out a poll on Twitter, in which they got more than 32,000 people to respond. Here is what the question says, "Bernie Sanders' Medicare for all bill, estimated to cost 32.6 trillion, new study says. Would the benefits outweigh the costs?" 73% of the more than 32,000 people who responded to this said yes, the benefits outweigh the costs. So Fox News, trying to discredit this and put out that already discredited information, got 73%, nearly three quarters of their respondents to say, "Yeah, that's actually worth it, we would be willing to do that." So even Fox News can't help but make the case that Medicare for all is not only what the people want, but they don't even care about the price tag, when you don't include the fact that it's actually going to save us money and be cheaper in the long run. They just want it. This is a program that they support regardless of the cost, and at this point again, we know that we will end up saving money. Republicans and Democrats actually support this kind of plan. And this isn't to say that everybody's going to have federally mandated government health insurance. Medicare is an optional program if you want to do it. The only people who could suffer under such a plan would be insurance company executives, and of course Big Pharma executives, because part of the thing with this would be that drug companies would have to lower their prices here in the United States. If you wanted to have a private plan with Blue Cross or Aetna or Cigna or whoever, you could still go and buy that plan. No problem with that. But, if you wanted the cheaper option, the federal government option, the Medicare for all, you could also do that. This is all about expanding choice in this country, the exact opposite of communism or socialism, like Republicans are trying to scare us with, and most people know that on both sides of the aisle. Progressive policies like a Medicare for all type plan are hugely popular when you do not associate them with any political party. They're popular among Republicans, they're popular among Democrats, and that's what's happened with Medicare for all. Since the Democrats refused to jump on it when Bernie was pushing it, it has become disassociated from the Democratic Party, and now it's just a plan that most people want regardless of party affiliation. It's going to save us money and, so far, every single time that these Republican pundits, networks, and think tanks have tried to debunk it and tell us how horrible it is, they have ended up telling us that this is almost at this point, inevitable for this country because it's what the people want.

Trump Voters Losing Their Jobs Daily Because Of Trump’s Policies
 
04:27
The tariffs that Donald Trump has put in place are not only having the opposite effect that he had predicted, but they are also disproportionately affecting the people who put him in office. So far 65% of the job losses and expected job losses from the tariffs have happened in counties that voted for Trump, meaning his voters are getting screwed the most from his policies. Should we be sympathetic, or is it time that people learn the consequences of their voting habits? Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2018/07/09/trumps-delusions-are-about-to-blow-up-in-his-own-voters-faces/?utm_term=.810d3cd59402 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

And this story here is another example of just why it's getting harder and harder to care. See, as we all know, Donald Trump has engaged the United States in a massive trade war with countries all over the planet. And right now, the United States actually appears to be losing those trade wars because, much like Bush with Iraq and Afghanistan, Donald Trump entered these trade wars with absolutely no exit strategy. He knows nothing of global economic policy, and therefore he's decided to just screw us all over. But, according to a new report, he's actually screwing over the people who voted for him more than anyone else in this country. 65% of the retaliatory tariffs that other countries have placed on the United States are directly affecting counties that voted for Trump. 65%, so we're talking two-thirds of the tariffs that have been put in place by other countries on our country are directly affecting the people who voted for Donald Trump. Only 35% are affecting counties that voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election. But here's the kicker. Some of these counties where the tariffs are hitting the hardest, and we're talking about potentially 1,046,686 jobs that could be lost in red counties alone in the United States, upwards of two million total from the trade wars. But over one million red county jobs are at stake, and part of it is because countries like China are actually pretty smart with what they're doing. They're not just trying to harm the United States. What they're trying to do is harm Donald Trump himself with his voters, because they tailored their tariffs to directly affect those counties, to directly affect the reddest areas of the United States. They knew what they were doing. And it is sad when anybody loses their job. Hell, if we lose these one million or two million jobs that are currently being projected within the next year, that is going to absolutely decimate the U.S. economy, and we do not need that to happen. We need a remedy for Donald Trump's trade wars before he destroys this economy that Barack Obama took eight years to try to correct and still couldn't even finish it. This is not something that can be turned around in four years or eight years. And we're on the cusp of the hardest part of an economic recovery when we're at the most vulnerable to outside forces. These trade wars will, according to economists, send us into another recession, possibly within the next 12 months. And if we lose another one million, two million jobs in this country, we could be right back in the same situation we were in in 2007. But Trump doesn't care about that. He doesn't care that the people who put him in office are suffering, that they're on the verge of losing their job, and that thousands upon thousands already have lost their jobs because of his trade wars. It's 100% because of that. And again, I'm finding it hard to find sympathy for these people. They did this to themselves. They knew what they were getting into. Trump was very clear about what he wanted to do as President of the United States.

Trump Refuses To Take The Blame For Destroying American Businesses

Harley Davidson became the latest company to announce that they are shipping more American jobs overseas, arguing that Trump’s trade wars are going to cost them dearly. But in true Trump fashion, the President refuses to acknowledge that he is to blame for this move, as well as the handful of other companies going under as a result of his trade policies.

That's right. The president who wants to take credit for riding his economic coattails of Obama, and wants us to say that every good economic things that happens is because of him, refuses to take the blame for all of the bad things that are starting to pop up all over the US economy. This week, it was Harley Davidson. They announced that due to the tariffs, the retaliatory tariffs that have been put in place by other countries as a result of Donald Trump's tariffs on those countries. That they're going to have to move some of their production overseas. They're going to lay off American workers, they're going to move some factory production so that they can get around all of these horrible tariffs that are in place because of Donald Trump's policies. So, Trump lashed out at Harley Davidson on Twitter. He said, their employees and customers are already very angry at them, if they move, watch, it will be the beginning of the end. They surrendered, they quit, the aura will be gone, and they will be taxed like never before. Now, to me, it sounds like the president is using his official capacity as the political leader of this country to intimidate and harass and threaten a private business. Now, last time I checked, that's actually illegal. But of course, as we've seen with every single thing Trump has done, nobody's ever going to hold them accountable. Nobody's going to file an ethics complaint against them for this, but just remember that when you see these things that yes, this is technically illegal for the President to do it. But at this point, that's the least of our concerns. What we do have to worry about are the businesses that are closing their doors and laying off American workers because they can't afford to keep operating due to Donald Trump's trade war. Harley Davidson is not the first one this week. We already heard about the story of the nail manufacturing company, the largest in the United States that's already laid off 500 people. And now the president of that company is worried that he's going to have to shut his doors completely because they simply can't afford to operate due to Donald Trump's trade wars. Yet, here Trump is on Twitter threatening these companies and saying that, "It's not my fault. You got to wait it out. Be patient. Yeah, things are going to suck for quite a while, but eventually they'll get better." That's not how this works Donald. You're playing a game that you don't understand. Nobody ever emerges as the winner of a trade war. It eventually comes down to everybody having to sit down and make a ton of concessions in order to get it to stop. And that is not something that Donald Trump is willing to do. And because of that, this is going to last, this is going to get worse, and let's remember, this has been what, about a month now that these terrorists have been going on. And we've lost well over $1 billion worth of economic activity in the United States. Businesses are closing their doors, hundreds of people, if not thousands at this point, have already lost their jobs in one month. Can you imagine how bad things will be by the end of the summer if he doesn't stop this. In all of it, every single piece of it is 100% his fault.

Donald Trump’s Presence Is Absolutely Killing The Republican Party
 
02:57
According to the available data, Republicans have lost ground in every single special election that has taken place in the U.S. since Donald Trump became president. While the Party in power has typically struggled during their first year in office, there has never been an instance where the Party in power has lost ground in EVERY SINGLE ELECTION. But that’s what Trump has done to the GOP, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/04/25/us/politics/special-election-results-shift-democratic.html Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

You see, in every special election, according to this data that's been published by the New York Times, in every single special election that's happened since Donald Trump took office in January of 2018, the republicans have lost ground. Excuse me, it was January 2017 there. But anyway, every special election since Donald Trump was sworn in Republicans have lost ground. Meaning they have not yet won any special election by the same or more margin that Donald Trump won in that area in the special election or that Donald Trump gained during that election in case it was a democratic county or democratic area that went more for Hilary than for Trump. They've lost ground in over 40 special elections in less than a year and a half. That is the kind of toxicity that Donald Trump has brought to the Republican party. But let's be perfectly honest here, this is not just a Donald Trump story, this is a Americans absolutely hate Republican policies story. Because the policies that have been signed into law under Donald Trump all came from the Republican party. I mean let's not forget that those control the house and the senate, and they're the ones who are sponsoring this legislation, they're writing it, they're putting it forward, they're enacting all of their horrible policies that they've been promising to enact over the years, and now they finally got a guy in the White House who's willing to just green light every bit of it and get it out as fast as possible. Well as it turns out, people hate it. The latest round of polling shows that the majority of people in this country, the vast majority understand that the Republican tax plan, yeah, that was just a scam. And the American public understands that and they see it now. So it's not surprising that Republicans are losing in these special elections, but here's the thing, a lot of people are out there saying right now that, "Oh it's because the party in power typically loses during their first two years in office. It happens all the time." This is true. But it's only true of the mid terms, not of special elections. The amount of support that the Republican party has lost in the last year and a half is unprecedented. This has not happened before, and hopefully this is a sign that American voters are waking up to the fraud of the Republican party and Donald Trump himself. And if the Democrats have enough sense they're going to offer much clearer viable alternatives to Republicans in the 2018 midterms.

Panic Time For Trump As Mueller Hires MORE Prosecutors
 
02:28
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is in the process of hiring even more prosecutors for his probe into the Trump campaign and administration, a move which indicates that there are A LOT more indictments headed down the pipeline. Could this move by Mueller help explain Trump’s increasingly erratic and unhinged behavior? Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – http://thehill.com/homenews/news/395565-mueller-hires-more-prosecutors-as-russia-probe-moves-forward-report?amp&__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, here's the thing, you don't just hire more prosecutors because you want to have more people in the room with you. You don't hire more prosecutors because you're feeling a little bit lonely, you hire more prosecutors when you realize that you have more indictments, more people that you want to bring in front of a jury, than you have prosecutors, and that is pretty much exactly what we can go ahead and assume has happened with Robert Mueller's investigation. More prosecutors is indicative of more indictments to come down the road. These indictments may be soon, we may see them in the months leading up to the midterms or, if Mueller wants to try to appease Republicans by not doing it before the midterms, I imagine that in late November, we're going to see the biggest flurry of indictments and arrests that we have seen so far from this investigation. Now there's no indication at the moment that any of these prosecutors are being hired to take on Trump himself, but obviously since this investigation revolves around the people Donald Trump hired for his campaign, it's not sitting well with Donald Trump, and this might help to explain some of his recently increasingly erratic behavior. Trump has been on the absolute warpath for the last couple of weeks. His tweets are getting more insane, his rallies are becoming more like white-hooded Klan rallies, but nonetheless he's starting to freak out, because he understands that most of the small fish have been captured out of the pond at this point. Mueller doesn't have any other small fish to go after, so he's going after the bigger ones. We know he's looking into Kushner, we know he's looking into Trump Junior, we know he's got his hands on financial records from Russia as well as financial records from Donald Trump himself, and Donald Trump is absolutely freaking out right now. And the fact that Mueller's decided that he needs even more prosecutors on his team, well that's not going to bode well for anyone that has ever associated themselves with Donald Trump.

Fox Host Asks Rudy Giuliani If He Feels Disoriented
 
04:15
Rudy Giuliani has a habit of saying some crazy and outlandish things about during TV interviews about his client, Donald Trump, and those claims have sparked speculation among some current and former Republicans as to whether or not Giuliani is suffering from some kind of mental decline. This weekend, Fox host Howard Kurtz asked Giuliani, in the context of a comment made by Joe Scarborough, if these claims have any merit. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link - https://www.rawstory.com/2018/08/feel-disoriented-fox-news-host-asks-rudy-giuliani-seems-confused-time/amp/?__twitter_impression=true Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Take a look at this exchange and see how Rudy Giuliani immediately adapts his performance so that he doesn't come off as crazy. Here it is. Now, you get personally hammered a lot in your very public role here. And, particularly on MSNBC. So, for example, just to give you a chance to respond, Nicole Wallace, former Bush White House official said, 'Oh, my God. Rudy needs to check his carbon monoxide monitors.' And, Joe Scarborough, one time republican congressman said in while criticizing some of your comments, 'His eyes are bulging while he's talking and he looks disoriented.' Do you feel disoriented, Mr. Mayor? Absolutely. I'm completely disoriented. I'm sure it sounds that way. Is there something wr- ... I mean, doesn't this give you an indication how we have, of what you cover, of how completely disoriented the press is and how out of control they are. Not only criticizing the President, but everybody around him. I don't know, you can disagree with me. I'm hardly disoriented. I know where I am. I know who I am. I don't even think it's worth commenting except for the fact that aren't they way out of control with journalists accusing you of some kind of mental illness? Well, that's in the political coverage of Donald Trump as opposed to the coverage of the investigation. Hey, look, a lot of the coverage of President Trump is negative, but Mueller is running an investigation where there have been indictments and guilty pleas. So, lemme- [crosstalk 00:01:43] Go ahead. But, it's one thing, it's one thing to do that, it's another thing to say that a person's disoriented whose not. It's another thing to say that the ... I mean, they said that about the President, right? All the time Scarborough's said that. Scarborough's got some deep animus to the President. I mean all of MSNBC does. Okay, again. Let's start with the fact that Giuliani suddenly, yes, I'm totally disoriented. He changed his entire demeanor because he understands completely what Joe Scarborough was talking about that Howard Kurtz brought up. He knows exactly what he does that comes across as crazy. But, more importantly, I don't feel like Howard Kurtz was joking around with him there. That man was stone-faced absolutely asking him, do you feel disoriented? It wasn't a joke. He wasn't playing around. I feel like Howard Kurtz, in that particular clip, was legitimately trying to find out if there is something wrong with Rudy Giuliani. Now, maybe I'm wrong about that. Maybe Howard Kurtz just has a very dry sense of humor, but based on what we've seen from him over the past few years, I don't think that's the case at all.

Ted Cruz Freaks Out, Asks Trump To Help His Failing Campaign
 
03:31
Ted Cruz is currently fighting for his political life in Texas, with challenger Beto O’Rourke closing in on him in the polls. Right now it is a statistical dead heat, so Cruz is now begging Donald Trump to come hold a rally for him to boost his numbers. The man that was constantly berated by Trump during the Republican primaries is now showing what a coward he is by asking for his help after he took his abuse for several years.

The latest round of polling shows that Ted Cruz, I believe he's one or two points ahead of his democratic challenger Beto O'Rourke, a gap that he's been closing week by week in the last few months. Now, given the margin of error for the poll, it is a statistical dead heat, because you factor in the margin of error and Beto O'Rourke might actually be a point ahead of Ted Cruz. So that's a big deal in the state of Texas where you have a guy like Ted Cruz, been [inaudible 00:00:34] for years, this should have been a slam dunk, home run, touchdown of a campaign for him. No problem, just sailing right back to six more years in the Senate. Now it looks like this man might actually lose, which would be the biggest upset of the coming midterms. So Ted Cruz obviously understands that his campaign is going down in flames and that he's losing more and more each week, so he has reached out the one person that he believes can help him and that person sadly is the man who spent over a year making fun of him and his family and his wife, his father, and that person is Donald Trump. Ted Cruz has admitted that his campaign is in touch with Donald Trump and they're trying to get him to come down to Texas to hold a rally for Ted Cruz. Now, it's important to remember, please, that Ted Cruz was mocked relentlessly by Donald Trump during the republican presidential primaries. During those debates he made fun of Ted Cruz. In other instances, he made fun of Ted Cruz's wife's appearance. He insinuated that Ted Cruz's father, and he allowed this conspiracy theory to spread, that his father was somehow the Zodiac Killer. Or it was, excuse me, involved with the Kennedy assassination. The other conspiracy theories, that Ted Cruz looked a little bit like the Zodiac Killer, sorry. None the less, and he may have been joking with that, the people may have been joking, but none the less this man insulted every branch of Ted Cruz's family tree over the course of a year and a half, still mocks him whenever the opportunity comes up, but Ted Cruz is so desperate for help that he is willing to come to this man and say, "I know you've been horrible to me, I know you've been horrible to my family, but please, for the love of God, I don't wanna lose my job. I'm willing to put all of that aside. Forget the horrible things you said about the woman I allegedly love, if you only can help me save my career." This is a kind of thing that tells you everything you need to know about Ted Cruz. He's a guy that has no morals, he has no spine, he has no backbone and he has no loyalty to his own family if he is willing to reach out to this man, Donald Trump, to say, "The only thing that matters is my job. Saving my seat in the Senate." For this reason alone, Ted Cruz should be defeated. Don't even factor all of the horrible things he's done legislatively, the horrible things he said as a human being. The fact that he has more loyalty to his seat in the Senate than he does to his own wife, that is more than enough for the people of Texas to see him as a scumbag that he is and finally vote him out of the U.S. Senate, because that is exactly what this kind of spineless coward deserves.

Judge Smacks Down Trump’s Legal Arguments, Says He Can Be Deposed In Defamation Suit
 
03:16
Donald Trump’s legal team has been arguing that the President cannot be sued for defamation while in office, but all of their arguments have failed when ruled on by an actual judge. That’s the case right now with the defamation case against Trump filed by former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos, and this week a judge ruled that the President himself must face a deposition in the lawsuit. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.politico.com/story/2018/06/05/trump-depose-summer-zervos-lawsuit-624186 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Now, in case you're not familiar with it, here's the backstory on this entire lawsuit. Summer Zervos, a former Apprentice contestant, claims that Donald Trump groped and kissed her in a meeting that the two were supposed to be having. These were unwanted sexual advances, according to Zervos, so she was one of the woman who had accused Donald Trump of sexual assault. Donald Trump gets on Twitter, long ago, says it's a hoax, calls her a liar. Now, she's suing for defamation. Judge ruled not only can this case move forward against the wishes of Donald Trump's lawyers, but now that Donald Trump himself is likely going to have to sit for a deposition. And this is why this is important, not just as part of a defamation lawsuit against the president, but it shows you that when Donald Trump's lawyers try to put these arguments, that Trump has been making himself on Twitter, in front of an actually judge, they get shot down. A few months ago, Trump's lawyers had tried to argue before this judge that he could not stand trial for defamation because he was the president of the United States, and you cannot sue him. Well, as it turns out, you can. And then, they tried to argue that, okay, well, he doesn't have to sit for a deposition or really ever be a part of this, we're going to handle it on his behalf. And the judge said, once again, no, you can't do that, and yes, he can sit for a deposition. Again, every argument that Donald Trump's lawyers have tried to put in front of this judge has failed, and it just shows you what we can expect as this Muller investigation continues going forward. If Trump's lawyers try to go in front of the grand jury and make these same arguments, it's not going to work. They're not going to be able to say that, oh, a sitting president can't be accused of obstruction of justice or perjury, or they can't be subpoenaed, because yes, they can. Or, hey, Donald Trump can just pardon himself, when in reality, no, he cannot. Donald Trump has obviously surrounded himself with some of the most incompetent lawyers in this country, and that's not even including Rudy Giuliani in all of this. They're making bad faith legal arguments in front of sitting judges, and they are getting smacked down at every possible opportunity. As for Summer Zervos, she deserves justice. If what she has claimed that Donald Trump did is true, which we do not have very much reason to doubt her on this at all, then hopefully Donald Trump will not only go down for the defamation, but also for the assault that he performed on Summer Zervos. And his lawyers, if they keep doing what they're doing, are going to make sure that Donald Trump loses all of his legal cases.

Ivanka Trump May Be Even MORE Corrupt Than Her Father
 
04:02
Ivanka Trump has been winning new trademarks for her products in countries that have business before the US government, and the Trump administration has been more than happy to grant these countries whatever wishes they may have, usually either right before or right after they give Ivanka her trademarks. Is it possible that she’s even more corrupt than her father? As Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains, signs are very clearly pointing to ‘yes.’   Link – https://www.citizensforethics.org/ivankajapantrademarks/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

There's no question that Donald Trump is corrupt as hell. But recently after I read an article by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, CREW, about Ivanka Trump, I got to think that maybe Trump is actually not the most corrupt member of his family. I firmly believe that the mantle of most corrupt Trump in the United States belongs to Ivanka, and it's not just because of what she's done, it's also because of how she's able to wrap a smile around it, a pretty face and sell it to the American public as if she's out there somehow fighting for them. As part of this CREW article, they talked about the fact that Ivanka Trump is winning new trademarks left and right all over the world and they all always, always happen to coincide with a decision made by the government that benefits the country granting here the trademarks either right before they grant them or right after. For example, all of the Chinese trademarks that Ivanka Trump recently won happen to coincide with Donald Trump lifting sanctions against Chinese telecom company ZTE, which by our government's own admission, was spying on people. They were breaking the law. But Trump said, "Nah, go ahead and do your thing. Don't forget my daughter has got those patents waiting for ya." And they delivered. They delivered and Trump delivered. I have no doubt that Trump delivered because Ivanka asked him to because she wanted more money. Similar situation happened with Shinzō Abe from Japan. She met with him. Mike Pence met with him. Then suddenly, boom, they approve a bunch of new trademarks for Ivanka Trump. Here's the thing. Ivanka Trump has no real role, no defined job at the White House. In fact, there have been reports saying that most people in the White House have no idea why she's even there, what she does. They don't know. They know that occasionally she travels the world and meets with world leaders and then she gets trademarks from those people. This woman is literally using a really nonexistent job to go out there and sell herself and her company to these other countries in order to win more trademarks in order to gain her more money. This woman needs to be investigated today. In fact, she actually is under investigation at the moment looking into some of the deals that she has made. But we need a broader investigation. There is very clearly some pay to play here happening. There are conflicts of interests. There are all kinds of potentially criminal activities taking place at the hands of Ivanka Trump. Someone needs to be looking into this diligently. As good as these watchdog organizations are, they're not the ones who can get into all of the details and documents and meetings that somebody inside the White House could, an inspector general for example or a special prosecutor. We need organizations like CREW out there. They're the ones who help expose this, but ultimately they're not the ones who can do as in depth digging. They can't get search warrants. They can't get subpoenas so we need someone with that power to come forward because I guarantee you if we were to look more into her, if we were to find out what she's doing, who she's meeting with and what she's getting in return, Ivanka Trump would probably spend at least a decade, maybe more, in federal prison for not only scamming US tax payers, but scamming the federal government and using this nonexistent position that she has to make herself a little bit more wealthy.

John Kelly Wants To Know What The Hell Jared And Ivanka Do All Day
 
02:47
In a scene straight out of the cult classic Office Space, Trump’s Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly wants to know exactly what Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump do all day while they are at work. White House insiders say that Kelly is growing increasingly frustrated at the couple, and so far no one has even been able to answer his question about what the couple actually does in the White House.

The Associated Press reported earlier this week that John Kelly, Donald Trump's Chief of Staff is mad as hell at Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, and in a scene straight out of Office Space is wondering to aides what in the hell Ivanka and Jared do all day at the White House. I'm sure for those of you who have seen the movie, Office Space, you're aware of what I'm talking about, where you have the Bobs asking: "What would you say it is you do here?" That's pretty much what John Kelly is doing at this point with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump and this is part of the tension that's been growing between Kelly and Ivanka and Jared for about a week and a half now. As we know last week, reports said that Donald Trump was reaching out to John Kelly to find a way to push Ivanka and Jared out so Donald Trump didn't have to get his hands dirty by firing his own daughter and her husband. So I guess John Kelly has now stepped in and part of the "How do I push them out?" conversation involves around finding out what in the hell they actually do because I agree with John Kelly on this. Why are they there? What are they doing every day other than, based on the investigations, trying to use their foreign contacts and their positions of power to make money for themselves, which is obviously highly illegal of them. But so far, that's really the only information that we have about what these two people are doing inside the White House. They're not qualified for the positions that they hold. They're certainly not ethical enough to work within the White House and to be perfectly honest, neither of them are smart enough to be working inside the White House. John Kelly, for all his flaws and for all his horrible beliefs, actually does understand that. He wants to get back to his original mission of being the grownup inside the Trump Administration and so his first order of business is to get rid of the nepotism that has played this Administration since Day 1. Donald Trump promised us it was only going to be the best people, and instead, he pretty much picked the worst possible people that he could find throughout this entire country, and to be honest, he didn't even have to look far because some of the worst people in this country happen to also be his family members. At least John Kelly is trying to do away with that.

Robert Mueller Creates Prosecution Network In Case Trump Fires Him
 
03:33
Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller is making sure that he has all of his bases covered and that his investigation isn’t destroyed in the event that Donald Trump fires him, so he has worked with the Justice Department to farm out the prosecution of certain cases that have arisen from his investigation. This prosecution network will have all of the evidence necessary to proceed with prosecutions, should the special prosecutor’s office ever be shut down. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/mueller-pushing-to-wrap-up-parts-of-russia-probe-faces-question-of-american-involvement/2018/07/14/4bdcef90-8786-11e8-8f6c-46cb43e3f306_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.2061957c7c52 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

At this point, we have a lot of evidence that proves that Russia did in fact interfere with the 2016 election in order to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton. What is missing at this point is whether or not there was actual, firm, confirmable communication between the people who did that and the Trump administration. I know a lot of people who're watching this probably wanna say, yes of course they were. Let's just wait for the evidence to be able to prove that before somebody comes and along and says we don't have evidence. So just hold off on that for now. But I promise you, it's probably gonna come. Nonetheless, everybody's talking about now, well Robert Mueller's getting closer to Trump. Closer and closer and closer, so is it possible that Donal Trump could fire Robert Mueller and end this investigation altogether? The answer is both yes and no. Donald Trump could fire Robert Mueller, potentially sparking a constitutional crisis. But considering all of the constitutional crises that this man has started, I doubt he's concerned about starting one more. But here's the good news ladies and gentlemen. Robert Mueller perhaps sensing from the beginning that Donald Trump could fire him if he comes to a conclusion that Donald Trump doesn't like in any of his indictments, has been setting up fail safes so that even if he gets fired, these prosecutions and the investigations are not going away. According to a recent report, by The Washington Post, Robert Mueller and the Special Prosecutor's office, they've actually been farming out the prosecutions. They come up with the evidence, they submit it to the grand jury, they get their indictments and then it moves on to a different office that Donald Trump can't interfere with. He can't fire those prosecutors, he can't do anything about that. So that particular case, which ever one it may be lives on, no matter what happens to Robert Mueller, and that is what he's been doing according to this report from the very beginning. There's already some people that have left the Special Prosecutor's office to go return to work within the Justice Department, where they are continuing on with both the investigation and the prosecutions that Robert Mueller has already referred. Those will not stop if Robert Mueller gets fired. So this is a very smart move on Mueller's behalf. This is a very smart move for the Special Prosecutor's office, and it's a very bad thing for Donald Trump because what it shows is that these people he's dealing with are a lot smarter than he is. They understand what he may do because he wears his emotions on his sleeve. So they went ahead and they put these safeguards in place to make sure that if Donald Trump does the unthinkable, their investigation not only doesn't end, but it continues with a new sense of purpose. And that new sense of purpose will be to take down anyone in this administration, that may have committed treason. And that's not going to stop even if Robert Mueller gets fired.

Trump Is Mad That A Reporter Asked Him A Hard Question
 
02:41
Trump just won’t let his dismal performance in Helsinki go, and new reports say that he was fuming at his staff members for allowing a reporter to ask him a hard question that led to his traitorous gaffe with Putin. This helps explain why Trump loves to call media outlets “fake news” – its because they can actually speak intelligibly, unlike the President. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/398192-trump-complained-reporters-question-at-summit-was-too-hard Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

See, Donald Trump was upset about the fact that Lemire asked him a very tough question and was wondering why they wouldn't instead call on somebody who would throw him a softball. In case you're wondering, the question that this AP reporter asked was this, "With the whole world watching, will you tell President Putin that you denounce what happened in 2016 and would you warn him to never do it again?" See, that's the question that ended up getting Donald Trump in a lot of trouble last week. That's where he said, oh, no, he said he didn't do it so I trust him. Our intelligence agencies, they're awful. They're horrible people. They're partisan. They're biased. They're whatever. I trust Putin over these people. And Donald Trump was mad, not because of his response to it, but because it was a very hard question for him to ask. Keep in mind this is the same man who earlier today, or excuse me, actually Sunday evening, got on Twitter and threatened war against Iran. Obviously Donald Trump has no problem talking tough to people. It's just that in typical bully fashion, he has a problem talking tough to people to their face. Why? Because he is a complete coward. And, no, there is no equivalency between what Fox News is calling, like, oh, did they want him to shoot him on stage? Did they want a fistfight to break out? No. But you can still be tough. You can be diplomatic, but strong. That's something that Fox News doesn't understand because they haven't had a good Republican diplomat in decades. It's possible to do. Barack Obama did it. Donald Trump could do it if he wasn't such an incompetent bullish jackass. But nonetheless, he's mad at the reporter because they made a reporter who was not going to throw Trump softballs ask a question. And that gives us a little more info about why Donald Trump is always railing about the fake news. It's not that it's fake, it's that it's not pleasant to him. He doesn't quite understand it and it's not fawning all over him. That's the kind of media that this man hates and that's the kind of media that Donald Trump, regardless of how true it actually is, will always refer to as fake news.

Trump’s Stupidity Is Going To Lead To His Impeachment
 
03:27
Donald Trump doesn’t think before he speaks. For an average American, that could lead you into trouble, but for a man like Trump who is under criminal investigation, that could lead to jail time. As we saw with his Thursday morning Fox & Friends interview, he’s not doing himself any favors by speaking to the public, but his arrogance makes him continue to do it. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains how Trump’s stupidity is going to be his downfall.   Link – http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/trump-michael-cohen-fox-and-friends-live-tv-legal-advice-1.4637403 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

But, when you couple that with his arrogance, it makes for quite interesting spectacles, like we saw take place Thursday morning, when the president went on Fox and Friends. During that one single 30 minute telephone interview, Donald Trump managed to completely destroy many of the legal arguments that his lawyers, and lawyers for Michael Cohen, had been attempting to build over the last few weeks. His own stupidity, his inability to think before he speaks, may have just doomed his entire presidency, because not only did he implicate himself in the Michael Cohen scandal, but he also contradicted his previous statements about other investigations that are currently going on. So there's the thing, the Canadian broadcast company posted an article about this. And they had several different instances here of things that Donald Trump did that are highly questionable. First one, he acknowledged that he knew Cohen was representing him as a lawyer to deal with the matter involving Stormy Daniels. So, if Trump has knowledge of this $130,000 hush money payment that his lawyer allegedly made on his own, then that suddenly implicates Donald Trump in what could be a pretty massive crime. Number two, he supplied ample contradictions, including a remark that bolsters the lewdest claim made in the so called steel dossier, strengthening the case for deposition. That would be the fact that during the interview he mentioned "Yeah, I stayed the night in Russia on those dates." So okay, in spite of the fact that he had denied it constantly in the past, he now admits to it, and again, the dates that he was in Russia actually corroborate the steel dossier, as when the alleged P-Tape actually happened. So, pretty bad for Trump there. He suggested that he might medal with the department of justice, which is conducting an investigation in the Trump campaign's alleged ties with Russia. Specifically, he had said that he's not going to get involved in the justice department, although what they're doing is a disgrace, so he might get involved. He somehow managed to contradict himself literally in the same sentence that he was saying. Why? Because he's an idiot. If Donald Trump ends up getting impeached, which, to be honest is starting to seem a lot more likely, it's going to be because of his own stupidity. And of course, his arrogance in wanting to get his name on TV, and do these interviews, and talk to people who allegedly love him. That Fox and Friends interview Thursday was an absolute train wreck. I mean Michael Cohen reportedly had to call his lawyers after the segment aired, and he was in a panic over the things that Donald Trump said. That's not a really good thing for a guy who's facing criminal investigations. And it's certainly not a good thing for a guy like Trump, who's trying to avoid criminal prosecution.

Observers Agree That Trump’s Mental State Is Declining Rapidly
 
04:09
According to reporters who have spent every day of this administration paying close attention to the President, Donald Trump’s mental stability is declining at an alarming rate. Citing the increased frequency of his lies and his erratic behavior, these observers agree that something has changed with the President. And they aren’t wrong, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/06/trump-always-frequent-liar-observers-agree-getting-worse/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Ashley Parker is actually 100% right about that. Donald Trump has always been a liar. In fact, according to the fact checkers there at the Washington Post, he's still lying an average of 6.5 times per day over his entire administration, which has been 497 days. Almost 500 days, basically. Anyway, in the last few weeks alone, the frequency with which he lies has grown exponentially. A week ago, Friday, he lied 19 times before noon, Eastern. 19 times in one morning, on one day. Why? That's the question Ashley Parker was asking about this, is why? Why are the lies increasing? Why is the behavior getting weirder? Hell, we saw this week, he's hugging flags, he's accusing Canadians of smuggling shoes, he's lying about his family separation policy constantly. The reason is because these investigations that are going on are starting to freak him out. Another possible reason is because John Kelly's given up. New reports earlier this week said John Kelly just says, "I don't care anymore. Do whatever you want, even if it leads to your own impeachment." There is nobody looking over Donald Trump's shoulder anymore. Hope Hicks is gone. She was his closest confidante. She was his best friend in the White House. Ivanka Trump has gone MIA ever since she got slammed for sharing that picture of her and her child on Twitter while staying silent about the administration's family separation policies, so she's disappeared. Jared Kushner's fighting off five different investigations. Scott Pruitt's fighting off more than 12 different investigations. So, Trump has no one except for Fox News. One thing we've noticed as Trump's behavior has gotten more psychotic is that so has Fox News. Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, all of them within the last week were sitting there telling us things that everybody, including their audience, was commenting on Twitter saying, "This is not true. You're absolutely lying about all of this." Tucker said don't ever trust anything you hear in a media outlet that's not Fox. Sean Hannity said the IG report shows that Hillary Clinton should be in jail even though it said the exact opposite. Laura Ingraham said that these detention facilities, these internment camps, are basically just summer camps for these little kids. Fox News gets crazier, Donald Trump gets crazier, and the country just sits back in horror as we realize that our president's mental stability is on a very rapid decline, and it's been over a year since psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health experts warned us about Donald Trump's mental state and how dangerous it was. Here we are, one year later, watching in horror as all of their predictions have come true. He is freaked out about Mueller investigation, he's freaked out about Michael Cohen flipping on him, he's freaked out because he has no friends, and no allies, and no one to reign him in, so he relies on Fox News. So, he gets crazier, and they have to up it, and they get crazier. Again, we are the ones who have to sit here and watch this freak show continue to destroy this country.

Trump’s Friends Suggest He KNEW About Junior’s Trump Tower Meeting
 
03:28
Three of Donald Trump’s closest associates – Michael Cohen, Rudy Giuliani, and Sam Nunberg – have all either refused to answer whether Donald Trump knew about his son’s meeting with Russian lobbyists in Trump Tower, or they have implied that there’s no way he could have NOT known what was happening. This claim is central to the case being built by the special prosecutor, and if his friends aren’t willing to deny that he knew about it then its increasingly likely that Trump was aware of it from day 1. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – http://www.businessinsider.com/did-trump-know-about-trump-tower-russia-meeting-2018-7 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Most recently, it was Michael Cohen, who, during his recent interview with George Stephanopoulos, said that he couldn't answer whether Donald Trump knew about that particular meeting taking place, because his lawyers had advised him not to say anything about it. Now, that actually kind of sounds like something your lawyers would tell you if you had worked out a plea deal with the special prosecutor. The second person who won't deny that it happened is Rudy Giuliani, one of Donald Trump's lawyers who, back in May, admitted that Trump probably just can't remember whether or not he knew about it, because as Giuliani says, even he wouldn't remember if he had known about something like that. No. Giuliani, I'm pretty sure if you committed treason, it's probably something that's going to stick to your memory, no matter how bad your memory is. Treason seems to be one of those things a person probably isn't going to forget. Nonetheless, you didn't outright say it didn't happen, and you know what Trump had done, because you're his lawyer. But the most damning person who knows about this, a person who has already had to testify in front of a grand jury, is Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide for Donald Trump. Nunberg has actually come out publicly and said, "Yeah. Trump knew about it. He knew about it about a week before, and yet he continues going out there lying about it." Nunberg also added, "I don't know why he's lying. He should just say, 'Yeah. We met with him. So what? Big deal.'" Nunberg admits Trump knew that this meeting was going to take place, which really seems to be at the heart of the entire Mueller investigation, but he thinks it's no big deal and Trump should say it's no big deal. God, I hope he told that to that grand jury when he testified a few months ago, like, "Yeah. He knew about it. He did it, but come on. Come on. Really. What's the point? Who cares? Right? Let's all go out and have a few drinks." Yeah. That's not how these investigations work, Mr. Nunberg, but again, I really, really hope that you said that to that grand jury. The bottom line here is that Donald Trump's friends are no longer outright denying Trump's knowledge of this specific event, and they haven't denied his knowledge of other things that have happened during the campaign. Who are these people attempting to defend Donald Trump? How are they so grossly incompetent that they don't even know that regardless of what you know, you still have to make it sound like it didn't happen. You're doing your client so much damage now, and I love it, personally. I love it. I can't wait for something to take this president down, possibly put him in prison, but at the very least, get him out of the White House. But his lawyer, his buddies, his former lawyer, they are not doing him any favors by telling the press that they're not going to deny that he knew about this meeting that potentially sets up the entire basis for the collusion investigation.

Kellyanne Conway’s Husband Calls For New Criminal Investigation Of Trump
 
03:35
George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, believes that a new criminal investigation of his wife’s boss should be launched to determine whether the President and his children broke the law with their charity. Conway makes a good argument, and there is certainly enough evidence to warrant an investigation.

George Conway, Kellyanne Conway's husband, tweeted out, this week, that Donald Trump should be referred for criminal investigation to the state of New York. Here's what happened. George Conway was tweeting out about the story about Trump charities and the new charges coming from New York attorney general, Barbara Underwood. Conway, a lawyer himself, understands that these are very serious allegations. He said that this case should absolutely be referred for criminal investigation. Now, this is not the first time in recent weeks that George Conway has come out and, basically, attacked his wife's boss on Twitter. Right here, in this particular instance, George Conway has a very good point. This story about Trump charities being sued by the New York attorney general and being referred for possible criminal prosecution is one of the biggest stories in this country right now, and yet you cannot find coverage of it anywhere. Yes, obviously, we have a very massive problem with the detainment of children, in this country, but we also have a problem of a man who has likely committed crimes serving currently as president of the United States. These are verifiable, okay. The New York attorney's general office has emails. They've got all kinds of evidence to show that Donald Trump, himself, and his children, Ivanka, Trump Jr., and Eric, were all involved in a massive fraud scheme to rip off their own charity, use it as their personal piggy bank, which is the first illegal act. The second one is to use it in order to manipulate voters, which was using a charity for political purposes, which is also illegal. This is a pretty cut and dry story here. The evidence tells it very well. There's emails from Corey Lewandowski directing the charity to make a donation to a veterans' fund the day that Donald Trump was going to speak to a veterans' group so that he'd have something to boast about. You don't get more politically involved with a charity than that. Yeah, George Conway has a very good point. This just adds on to all of the other investigations going on with Donald Trump, himself. In my opinion, I think this charity one has the most potential. We know there's going to be some things that come out of Robert Mueller investigation. We know there's going to be some things that don't come out that I think a lot of people are waiting for. They may not ever come to fruition. This one, in the state of New York, an area where Donald Trump could not pardon anyone if they were convicted of a crime, even if they're his children of himself, this one has the very real potential to put Trump and possibly even his corrupt little children in prison for a very long time, or, at the least, remove the man from office. To be honest, I think that's what George Conway wants too. Yeah, he's a conservative. He's always been a hard core conservative. At least he's one of those conservatives that happens to understand that Donald Trump is causing irreversible harm to the Republican Party. Conway want him gone, even if it means his wife loses her job.

Trump’s Twitter Meltdown May Have Proven Collusion
 
02:58
On Sunday morning, Donald Trump attempted to hit back at reports that he was worried about Donald Trump, Jr. accidentally breaking the law, but instead of making the case for his son, he ended up implicating himself in the collusion conspiracy. By admitting that the meeting was to seek dirt on Hillary Clinton, Trump contradicted his own lawyers’ accounts of the meeting and possibly destroyed his entire defense.

Here is the tweet, and we'll get to why he tweeted this in a moment, but let's start with the actual tweet itself. "Fake news reporting a complete fabrication that I am concerned about the meeting my wonderful son Donald had in Trump Tower. This was a meeting to get information on an opponent. Totally legal and done all the time in politics and it went nowhere. I did not know about it". Alright. The reason Donald Trump tweeted this out is because over the weekend, stories began breaking that aids to Donald Trump have been telling the press that the President is afraid that his son accidentally broke the law by going to this Trump Tower meeting. Now, the administration's defense of this meeting, at least in the very beginning, was that Trump Junior was meeting with attorney, Russian attorney Natalia Veselnitskaya, who we now know actually has ties to the Russian Intelligence Community. He was meeting with her to discuss adoptions. That was actually what was in the memo dictated by Donald Trump on Air Force One as a response to a story by the New York Times. Adoptions. And here in black and white on Twitter on Sunday morning, Donald Trump admitted this was a meeting to seek dirt on our political opponent. And, yes. Those kinds of things do happen all the time. He's right about that, but he's wrong about where it comes from because, yeah, people hire opposition researchers. They pay independent firms to do things like this; totally legal, does happen all the time. They don't meet with foreign agents to try to get help in a U.S. election because that is illegal, but you just admitted that that is what happened. There is little doubt in the mind of any thinking rational human being that collusion happened. I mean, the President basically admitted it right there on Twitter. You cannot continue to deny that there was at least no attempted collusion, but when you're talking about something such as conspiracy, it doesn't necessarily have to have come to fruition. The fact that they attempted to make it happen is all you need to secure a conviction at this point. Trump Junior's in hell of a lot of trouble. Donald Trump is also now in a hell of a lot of trouble because he is such a moron that he can't keep his mouth shut for five seconds, and instead feels the need to constantly get out there in front of the public and implicate himself and his family in further potentially criminal activity.

Arrested Russian National Has Clear Ties To Trump Family
 
05:59
Maria Butina, the Russian national who was arrested for infiltrating the NRA and attempting to use her power to sway US politics, has very clear ties to the Trump family and once offered to set up a communication line between Trump and Putin. Mother Jones also uncovered footage from a 2015 Trump rally where Butina posed as a simple audience member and got Trump to say he’d lift sanctions on Russia. While this doesn’t prove collusion, it certainly isn’t a “nothing burger”, as Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains.   Link – https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/jul/16/maria-butina-charged-spying-russia-us-doj?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_reddit_is_fun Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Maria Butina happens to be a Russian national with high ranking contacts inside the Kremlin. And she was arrested, according to the release by the US Department of Justice, for conspiracy to infiltrate groups inside the USA in order to influence them to be friendlier and give favorable policies to Russia. Basically, she was hired by the Kremlin, sent over here to the United States, to infiltrate powerful groups, make powerful connections, and basically change US politics in favor of Russia. Now I don't know about you, but to me, that sounds very important. Almost as important, if not more so, than Donald Trump bowing down to Vladimir Putin on Monday. I think this is actually a bigger story. And here it is. Here is what happened. Butina came over here. She became a member of the NRA kind of worked her way through that organization, meeting people. She attended White House prayer breakfasts and all kind of events in Washington DC where she met and interacted with very high profile people within the NRA and the Republican party. Those two points are very important. It was the NRA and the Republican party. This woman was not out there meeting with Democrats. She was not trying to use them to influence US politics. It was strictly through the NRA and through the Republican party. Her contact over in Russia was a man by the name of Alexander Torshin, senior official at the Russian Central Bank, who's also a long-time associate of the NRA. He was placed under sanction earlier this year by the United States. He was her contact. He had close ties, was getting his orders from the Kremlin directly, telling Butina what to do, who to meet with, how to do things. And at one point, both Torshin and Butina had a private, little meeting with Donald Trump Jr. That is probably the most important take away from this entire story. Republicans and even some Democrats have been crying for months and months, if not over a year, that there's no hard evidence of collusion, there's none. It's not there. It doesn't exist. Really? Cause the DOJ just arrested a woman who was sent here by Russia to influence US politics and we can easily place her in a meeting with Donald Trump Jr. But that's not the extent of her connections with the Donald Trump family. Take a look at this clip of Butina posing as just an average Russian person in an audience asking Trump straight up, in 2015, at an event in Las Vegas, if he would end the sanctions on Russia. [inaudible 00:03:04] Yes, ma'am. I'm visiting from Russia. So my question- Ah, Putin. Good friend of Obama, Putin. He likes Obama a lot. Go ahead. My question will be about foreign politics. If you would be elected as a president, what would be your foreign politics especially in your relationships with my country? And do you want to continue the politics of sanctions that dimension of [inaudible 00:03:28] economy or you have any other ideas?

Nixon Was Guilty As Hell – And Trump Sounds Just Like Him
 
04:52
If you took Donald Trump’s word for it, you’d likely believe that the entire Mueller investigation was a politically-motivated witch hunt put together by a depressed and despondent Democratic Party. But if you know your history, then you also know that Richard Nixon tried the EXACT same tactic against the Special Prosecutor’s office investigating the Watergate scandal, and Trump’s attacks on Mueller and his team are likely to end the same way they ended for Nixon.

Why Is Sarah Huckabee Sanders Such A Horrible Person? Just Look At Her Dad
 
03:56
If you’ve ever wondered how Sarah Huckabee Sanders can lie with such impunity and always deny the reality of the world we live in, then all you have to do is take a good look at her father. Mike Huckabee set the standard for the Huckabee family, and his daughter is absolutely following in his footsteps as a horrible human being. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/07/mike-huckabee-claims-donald-trump-never-encouraged-violence-democrats-violent-ones/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, when you watch him, when he does interviews, the things he says, you can see that this guy has absolutely no concern for reality or the truth and instead basically just makes up whatever comes to his head. A great example happened this past weekend when Mike Huckabee went on Fox News and he once again attacked the incivility of the democrats. Then he claimed that Donald Trump has never ever encouraged violence against anybody that disagreed with him, which obviously for anyone who hasn't seen it, there is a video clip going around. There's actually a link to it in the article which is linked in this description. Trump has done it repeatedly, more so than anybody else. Last we checked, including Maxine Waters, nobody on the left has called for any kind of violence whatsoever against republicans or people that they disagree with. You see reality didn't matter there to Mike Huckabee and that is exactly where Sarah Huckabee Sanders gets it. Her father has been a liar for decades. He's been in the public eye for decades, first as governor as Arkansas, then as a repeated failed presidential candidate. Remember he tried to hitch his evangelical wagon to the woman who refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples because she didn't want to do her job. Huckabee thought that was going to be great for him, but unfortunately Ted Cruise snuck in and got there before he did. That's the kind of person Huckabee's always been. Jump on the most disgusting, horrible person you can find if you think it's going to excel your career, and that is what he did. His daughter saw that. His daughter learned from that, and that's why she is the way she is. Let's not forget that Huckabee is clearly been a horrible parent throughout his kids' entire childhood because his son, while a counselor, I guess, or whatever you call it, at Boy Scout camp murdered a dog with a fellow camp counselor that got them both fired and kicked out of the Boy Scouts. Unfortunately in that story there's actually not enough information. We don't know why they actually killed the dog. We don't even know how they killed the dog. We just know that the 17 year old David Huckabee, along with his buddy, killed a dog and nobody's story seemed to match with anybody else's story about the particular incident. In case you were wondering, yes, that is 100% psychotic behavior and is typically a warning sign of a very violent and deranged individual. Mike Huckabee didn't see it like that. He went out and did media interviews when the story resurfaced in '07-'08 and excused his son's psychotic behavior trying to write it off as no, no, no. He was being humane by killing the dog. That was a good thing he did. It's not a presidential issue. It certainly doesn't have any bearing on how I raised my children. No, but it does. Every time you see Sarah Huckabee Sanders go out there and lie about something flip over and watch Mike Huckabee on Fox News because he's going to lie about the same things. He's going to lie about everything. He's going to lie about the sky color just because that's the kind of human being he is. That is exactly the kind of people that he raised his children to become.

Seth Meyers FORCES Sarah Huckabee Sanders To Finally Tell The Truth
 
03:51
Seth Meyers found a clever way of finally getting Sarah Huckabee Sanders to tell the truth, and on a recent episode of Late Night, he aired a clip showing her answering his questions as honestly as possible. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins explains how comedians like Meyers and many others are the last breath of sanity in this country today.   Link – https://www.rawstory.com/2018/05/seth-meyers-strategically-edited-sarah-huckabee-sanders-press-briefing-deliver-honesty/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

On Tuesday night's program, Seth Meyers aired a mashup of Huckabee Sanders' clips to which he was asking questions to, and believe it or not, he finally got the woman to tell the truth. Take a look. Sarah. Sarah, Sarah, Sarah, Sarah, yeah over here. Sarah, yeah, thank you Seth Meyers, Late Night With Seth Meyers, Secretary Sanders, how do you think the history books will remember the Trump presidency? Nothing more than a poorly executed PR stunt. Can you tell us, why does the President keep attacking Robert Mueller on Twitter? The President does not have a lot of respect for people whose sole job is to carry out the law. If you'd only name one, what's the biggest weakness of the Trump administration? Certainly, our intelligence. What's Don Jr's primary role in the White House? Collusion with Russia. What do you think the future of this country looks like? I don't know that there will be one by the end of this year. When I look into your eyes, I sense a deep sadness, why? I spend more time with the President than anyone else. What do you call the rules outlining when Eric is allowed to come out of the basement? The Sunset Provision. What's your favorite type of pencil? Certainly, we have confidence in the number two. What was the name of Michael Cohen's band in college? The Legal Loopholes. If we do ever get to see the nude pics of Trump that Stormy Daniels claims to have, what do you think it'll look like? Like two peas in a pod. The thing I love so much about this video is the fact that everyone knows that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a liar. I mean there's no question about that. We know it. The thing is she doesn't have to be. If she doesn't want to answer questions that are a little too tough, then don't. Just say, "I'm not going to address that and move on," but instead she makes the choice to go out there and lie on behalf of the President, lie on behalf of the administration, lie on behalf of the Republican Party. Too few people are willing to go out there and admit that, "Yeah, she's just a liar." That's why people like Seth Meyers, Samantha Bee, Michelle Wolf, Jimmy Kimmel, that's why they're so important right now. It's a little breath of sanity in an otherwise insane world. More importantly, these people, these comedians are actually doing the job that the corporate media should of been doing since day one of this administration. It's really sad when we have to put our faith and hope for the country in comedians and late night talk show hosts, rather than the media, whose job it is to keep us informed and to hold those in power, accountable.

Mike Pence Heads To Midwest To Survey Trump’s Damage
 
03:23
Mike Pence has been sent out on a “damage control” mission, and his Trump Apology Tour has landed him in the heart of the Midwest. Pence is trying to ease the growing fears about Donald Trump’s trade wars, but Midwest voters are slow to buy into his assertions. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://www.politico.com/story/2018/07/11/pence-republicans-midterms-midwest-708710 Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

During Mike Pence's little trip he's gonna be visiting Kansas City, Cedar Rapids, and Chicago. And he's going to meet with people who have been directly affected by Donald Trump's trade wars. But don't worry, he's not actually gonna go out there and meet with the farmers who are losing their livelihoods, no, he's going to meet with wealthy republican donors who are concerned that the trade wars could eventually affect their livelihood. So at a time when we're getting stories on a daily basis about Trump supporters in the Midwest feeling betrayed by this administration, their pleas are falling on deaf ears, with a direct quote from one of them from a recent Detroit news article, "Pence isn't meeting with those people, he's meeting with wealthy republican donors to assure them that Donald Trump has a plan for these trade wars and that in the end we're all going to come out better." See here's the thing that Mike Pence and these republican donors don't understand, nobody wins in a trade war. There's never a victor, there's always just losers. And right now everyone involved in this trade war is losing. But nobody is losing it worse than republican voters. We've already talked in the past about how most of the tariffs that other countries are putting in place on US goods are directly targeting red counties throughout the United States, counties that voted for Donald Trump over Hilary Clinton. 65% actually, of the retaliatory tariffs have directly affected red counties as opposed to blue counties. So Mike Pence, knowing this, knowing that people are uneasy, knowing that jobs are being lost left and right and up to 1.5 million more could be on the chopping block in the next year, has decided that his best course of action is to meet with republican donors, tell them everything is fine, lie to them, just so they continue to donate money so that their republican members of congress don't get voted out in the potential blue wave this coming November. That's not going to work Mike. You see, here's the thing about economic policies, right? When it does start directly affecting you and you know who did it, you really can't go out there and pay for 10 million dollars worth of ads telling those same people that it didn't happen, because they know it did, because they lived it. So if you really wanna do some damage control for Donald Trump and the Republican Party, my suggestion is that you get out of those fancy swanky little boardrooms, put on some work boots, walk out into the fields and actually meet the people who are losing their livelihoods as a result of your boss's policies.

Study Confirms That Workers Got SCREWED On Tax Cut Deal
 
03:16
With results that shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone, the tax cut package that was put into place at the end of last year has given virtually NOTHING to American workers and corporations are using that money to pay themselves instead of their workers. This is what happens when corporations control our politicians, and until we get money out of politics, nothing will ever change. Ring of Fire’s Farron Cousins discusses this.   Link – https://thinkprogress.org/worker-income-low-in-trumps-booming-economy-stock-buybacks-wealthy-22f1d2af5ab8/ Support us by becoming a monthly patron on Patreon, and help keep progressive media alive!: https://www.patreon.com/TheRingofFire Spread the word!

How will you spend yours?" Well, here's the thing Heritage, the average worker isn't actually getting $26,000 or $2,600 because as you pointed out, it's over the next 10 years. The average American worker is getting nothing. The average American worker is actually getting less than nothing because according to every single study including those by republican organizations, those tax cut savings that corporations brought home, are not going to their workers. They are going to stock buybacks and to basically pay off their wealthy CEOs. American workers are getting absolutely nothing. In fact, real wages for American workers since this past December when the tax cut package was passed, have actually declined. We're getting less than we were eight months ago. And republicans, politicians and think tanks alike, they want to tell us that we need to be grateful that the average person is getting $26,000 over the next 10 years, ignoring the fact that the CEOs are getting 10-20 million a piece and we're getting a buck or two? Like when Paul Ryan touted the fact that, "Hey, this librarian's getting a buck-fifty a paycheck!" Whoo-hoo! That's a massive tax cut, right? They don't understand. Why? Because they're being paid to not understand the issue, and that's the problem with corporations both funding politicians and funding these phony think tanks like the Heritage Foundation. These corporations have a seemingly endless supply of money, and republicans just gave them a lot more with this tax cut package. Could be giving them even more soon with Donald Trump's capital gains tax cuts that he wants to do through the treasury. They're going to have more money than ever. They do have more money than ever. They're paying themselves more than ever. And they're not giving a dime of it to their workers. A few people got raises. All right? A few. But not enough. And so these corporations are going to continue to pay off the politicians to go out there and spread these lies. They're going to pay the think tanks to go out there and write these phonied up papers using "fuzzy math" according to George W. Bush, to say that these tax cuts are great and everybody's getting something from it. But the truth is, none of us, unless you happen to be a CEO or you were already pulling in more than half a million dollars every year, most of us don't fall into those categories, so most of us are going to be getting absolutely nothing while the corporations that put out poison pills, destroy our environment, are responsible for oil spills ... they get to pocket a few extra million dollars every single year for doing nothing more than being the puppet masters of our political leaders.
