    Trump economic ‘uncertainty’ worse than ’08 financial crisis levels, index shows
    CNBC May 19, 2017

    —The election of President Trump is eclipsed only by the 9/11 terrorist attack and the battle over the fiscal cliff in 2011 in terms of generating doubt about future economic policy, according to the Economic Policy Uncertainty Index.
    —Increases “in policy uncertainty foreshadow declines in investment, output, and employment in the United States,” the three professors who created the index wrote in a 2016 paper.
    —They do not say recession necessarily follows, only that there is a measurable economic effect from uncertainty, and they urge lawmakers to keep that in mind.
    ——————

    From the standpoint of creating economic uncertainty, the election of Donald Trump has been more tumultuous than the 1987 stock market crash and the 2008 financial crisis.

    Judged by the Economic Policy Uncertainty Index — devised by economists from Stanford, the University of Chicago, and Northwestern — the election of President Trump stands as the third-biggest source of uncertainty in the index’s 30-plus-year history. It is eclipsed only by the 9/11 terrorist attack and the battle over the fiscal cliff in 2011 in terms of generating doubt about future economic policy.

    Trump Told Russians That Firing Nut Job Comey Eased Pressure From Investigation

    Source: New York Times

    WASHINGTON President Trump told Russian officials in the Oval Office this month that firing the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, had relieved great pressure on him, according to a document summarizing the meeting.

    “I just fired the head of the F.B.I. He was crazy, a real nut job”, Mr. Trump said, according to the document, which was read to The New York Times by an American official. “I faced great pressure because of Russia. Thats taken off. Mr. Trump added, Im not under investigation.”

    The conversation, during a May 10 meeting the day after he fired Mr. Comey reinforces the notion that Mr. Trump dismissed him primarily because of the bureaus investigation into possible collusion between his campaign and Russian operatives. Mr. Trump said as much in one televised interview, but the White House has offered changing justifications for the firing.

    The White House document that contained Mr. Trumps comments was based on notes taken from inside the Oval Office and has been circulated as the official account of the meeting. One official read quotations to The Times, and a second official confirmed the broad outlines of the discussion.

    Justice Department seeks increase in private prison beds

    Source: CNN

    (CNN)The Obama administration planned to reduce the number of non-US offenders housed in federal private prisons.

    President Donald Trump’s administration is seeking to undo those cuts — and could add more than 1,500 on top.

    The potential increases are laid out by the US Bureau of Prisons in a notice for beds in Criminal Alien Requirement (CAR) facilities, privately-managed prisons primarily for non-US citizens convicted of low-level drug and immigration offenses.

    The notice of bids from the Bureau of Prisons was posted on April 21 and signals an increase of 1,607 beds to the system. That could bring the total population in private prisons to 22,894.

      Why is trump himself under investigation?

  • jziglar

    Trump is a dumb motherfucker (excuse my language). I’ve never seen someone this dumb in such a high level position of power. People talk about comparing Trump to Nixon. LOL! That’s an insult to Nixon. Nixon was very intelligent and actually had some major accomplishments that he thought of before entering office, and worked on them heavily. Like opening relations with China, pursing détente with Russia during the Cold War in the form of nuclear arms agreements. And on the domestic front he signed a big expansion of social security, the creation of the EPA and OSHA, the Clean Air and Clean water Acts, among other things. Trump has done nothing of major significance or anything that is broadly popular. And Nixon’s team was way smarter and more capable than Trump’s. Nixon was a paranoid man who had a dark side, and that’s what did him in. But comparing Trump to Nixon is a joke.

    • Miranda

      He’s been this dumb his entire life and his daddy’s money is why he got any where.

      • rikyrah

        without his Daddy’s money, he’d be selling used cars.

    • BoomerGal

      And Nixon was an attorney!! This man is a reality tv host/”real estate developer”/high school graduate. A little mediocre white man who bit off more than he can chew.

    • When they asked Nixon what the solution was to the problems in the inner city he said two words: Black Capitalism.

      And not just Republicans either. many progressives jumped on their paternalism train, wagging their fingers while giving PBO their own imaginary timetables for the job HE had to do..they just chased ratings and fundraising goals.

      So many have been exposed for abysmal behavior toward the intelligent black president while twisting themselves in contortions for the intellectually deficient, mediocre, disgraceful white successor.

    NEW YORK — Jim Donovan is dropping out as President Donald Trump’s nominee to serve as deputy Treasury secretary.

    The Goldman Sachs executive, nominated in March to serve as Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s No. 2, informed the White House this week that he could not take the job due to family concerns. He was expected to play a critical role in helping shape the administration’s tax reform policy through Capitol Hill.

    “I am deeply honored by President Trump’s decision to nominate me as Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Treasury,” Donovan said in a statement. “However, at this time I want to focus on my family, and I can no longer accept it. I hope to be able to serve this administration in the future and fully support President Trump and Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s ongoing work to reform the tax system and grow the U.S. economy.”

    Donovan’s departure will come as the administration struggles to push the focus back to its major policy initiatives and away from a series of revelations about the administration and Russia.

    White House expected to reassign economic adviser amid internal tension

    Source: Politico

    By ANDREW RESTUCCIA and NAHAL TOOSI 05/19/2017 02:56 PM EDT

    The White House is expected to soon reassign a top official on the National Economic Council amid internal tension among President Donald Trump’s aides, two administration officials told POLITICO.

    Kenneth Juster, the NEC’s deputy director and an adviser to Trump on international economic affairs, is expected to be removed from the council “imminently,” one administration official said, though it’s unclear where he will land.

    “He is not long for the White House. I know he is going to be reassigned,” the administration official said. “He is not going to be here long. The question is where will he go. That’s the only reason he’s not gone already is they’re trying to find him an alternate position.”

    Two officials said Juster had been involved in disagreements within the administration between the so-called “globalists” and “nationalists” at the White House. That tension has prominently played out between NEC director Gary Cohn, a former Goldman Sachs executive and registered Democrat, and White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, who helped shape Trump’s nationalistic rhetoric during the campaign.

    HUD budget slashes housing programs, drawing protests from advocates

    Source: Politico

    By LORRAINE WOELLERT 05/19/2017 01:36 PM EDT Updated 05/19/2017 12:58 PM EDT

    President Donald Trump’s administration will seek to slash spending on affordable housing and community development programs, a plan that housing advocates condemned as “immoral” and a blow to voters who sent him to the White House.

    The administration is seeking to cut spending on affordable housing and community development and wants mortgage lenders to fund technology fixes at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, according to a budget draft obtained by POLITICO. The proposal also eliminates the Housing Trust Fund, a program financed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac profits.

    In all, the request cuts funding by some $6 billion for fiscal year 2018, to about $40 billion. The draft, dated May 4, might not reflect the administration’s final spending request, which is expected next week. A HUD spokesman did not respond to requests for comment.

    The document puts increased responsibility on state and local governments and calls for the private sector to do more to meet community needs, a key goal of HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

    The Mueller probe has now broadened to include financial crimes committed by anyone

    close to DT.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/russia-probe-reaches-current-white-house-official-people-familiar-with-the-case-say/2017/05/19/7685adba-3c99-11e7-9e48-c4f199710b69_story.html?utm_term=.4da368da33af

    It is unclear exactly how Mueller’s leadership will affect the direction of the probe, and he is already bringing in new people to work on the team. Those familiar with the case said its significance had increased before Mueller’s appointment.

    While the case began quietly last July as an effort to determine whether any Trump associates coordinated with Russian operatives to meddle in the presidential election campaign, the investigative work now being done by the FBI also includes determining whether any financial crimes were committed by people close to the president. The people familiar with the matter said the probe has sharpened into something more fraught for the White House, the FBI and the Justice Department — particularly because of the public steps investigators know they now need to take, the people said.

    When subpoenas are issued or interviews are requested, it is possible the people being asked to talk or provide documents will reveal publicly what they were asked about.

    A small group of lawmakers known as the Gang of Eight were notified of the change in tempo and focus in the investigation at a classified briefing on Wednesday evening, the people familiar with the matter said. FBI Director James Comey had publicly confirmed the existence of the investigation in March.

    Sources: White House lawyers research impeachment

    Source: CNN

    Washington (CNN)White House lawyers have begun researching impeachment procedures in an effort to prepare for what officials still believe is a distant possibility that President Donald Trump could have to fend off attempts to remove him from office, two people briefed on the discussions tell CNN.

    White House officials believe the President has the backing of Republican allies in Congress and that impeachment is not in the cards, according to the people briefed on the legal discussions. Even Democrats have tried to calm impeachment talk out of concern it is premature.

    But lawyers in the White House counsel’s office have consulted experts in impeachment during the past week and have begun collecting information on how such proceedings would work, a person briefed on the matter told CNN.

    The White House did not comment for the story.

    White House Tells World Leaders That They Must Tell Trump He’s Doing Better Than Obama

    By Jason Easley on Fri, May 19th, 2017 at 1:30 pm

    Foreign leaders are being told that they are to compliment Trump on his Electoral College win and compare him favorably to President Obama as part of the rules for meeting with the President during his first foreign trip.

    The New York Times reported:

    Trump can only handle one point in a very short conversation, and he needs his ego flattered and a slide show.

    Donald Trump’s trip isn’t an international visit overseas by a president. It is a global babysitting operation to give American a break for its perpetually needy, corrupt, and scandal-plagued toddler.

    The White House’s “rules” for meeting Trump aren’t diplomatic guidelines for international diplomacy. They are a list you leave on the fridge for the babysitter before you both head out to catch a movie.

    The idea that world leaders are expected to lie and praise Trump as better than Obama is jaw-droppingly shallow. We all know that Trump can’t handle any criticism, but he is so insecure about not being as good of a president as Obama that it could be viewed as a symptom a deep mental or emotional issue.

    Trump will return to the United States thinking his trip was great, and he made lots of new friends, but the reality has never been more clear that Donald Trump isn’t just an American problem. He is also a headache for the entire world.

    “Clock boy” discrimination lawsuit dismissed by federal judge

    Source: CBS News

    A federal judge has dismissed a discrimination lawsuit brought by the family a Muslim student who was arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school that officials believed to be a bomb, saying the student’s attorneys failed to prove he was treated differently based on his race or religion.

    In September 2015, Ahmed Mohamed, an avid hobbyist who was 14 at the time, assembled the clock using a circuit board and digital display and proudly brought the clock to school to show to his teachers. One of his teachers heard the device beeping and brought Mohamed to the principal’s office. He was then arrested and suspended for three days.
