Trump Seeks Historic $3.6 Trillion In Spending Cuts, Including Selling Half The US Strategic Oil Reserve
ZeroHEdge | author | 05/23/17

More details of President Donald Trump's first budget proposal were reported Monday by Bloomberg and Reuters. The leaks add to the picture of what we know about Trump's budget, which also includes a flurry of leaks published by The Washington Post, the Associated Press and Bloomberg late Sunday, which fleshed out Trump's plans to slash entitlement spending.

In total, the budget plans to trim $3.6 trillion in spending over 10 years across all discretionary spending and non-discretionary spending lines, in order to enable tax reductions across the board: if enacted - and remember that the president's budget is just an initial blueprint which rarely passes in its original form - the Trump administration would implement the deepest cuts to government programs in a generation, delivering the opening salvo in a new round of budget battles in Washington.="http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-05-23/more-trump-budget-details-200-billion-infrastructure-25-billion-paid-family-leave" ...

The double count: Trump budget includes $2 trillion accounting gimmick
Salon | Matthew Rozsa | 05/23/17

Trump's budget gurus claim that the same $2.06 trillion will pay for both deficit reduction and tax reform

President Donald Trump's new budget seems to have a $2.06 trillion error. That is, it claims that the same $2.06 trillion can be used to both reduce the budget deficit and simultaneously pay for Trump’s proposed tax cuts, according to a report by Axios. When confronted about this during a press conference on Tuesday, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney argued that the administration "did [the double count] on purpose... I'm aware of the criticisms and would simply come back and say there's other places where we were probably overly conservative in our accounting. We stand by the numbers."

Economists interviewed by the Los Angeles Times seem to agree that Trump's figures are absurd. A senior vice president for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget named told the Times that “you can't use the same money twice.” Lawrence Summers, who served in economic policy positions for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, referred to the double-counting as an "egregious accounting error." ...

Terror Strikes At Ariana Grande Concert, Leaving 22 Dead
HP | Mollie Reilly | 05/22/17

Moments after Ariana Grande finished performing her 2016 hit single "Dangerous Woman" Monday, a loud blast jarred thousands of British fans cheering the American pop star at the Manchester Arena.

Concertgoers, many of them Grande's young fans and their friends, parents and grandparents, scrambled to evacuate the enormous concert hall, filling the arena with screams. Some were still clutching pink balloons that had dropped from the rafters during Grande's encore. ... Read more

Trump's Budget Will Slash $1.7 Trillion In Entitlements, Cut Food Stamps By 25%
ZeroHedge | author | 05/22/17

More details from President Donald Trump's first budget proposal are trickling out via a flurry of overnight reports from The Washington Post, Associated Press and Bloomberg News.

  1. The budget will slash $1.7 trillion in spending on entitlement programs, according to Bloomberg.
  2. Trump's budget will include a massive nearly $200 billion cut to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, the modern version of food stamps, over the next 10 years -- what amounts to a 25% reduction, according to The Washington Post.
  3. The food stamp cuts are part of a broader $274 billion welfare-reform effort, according to a report by The Associated Press.
  4. The budget calls for about $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for fiscal year 2018, WaPo reported.
  5. The budget also calls for $2.6 billion in border security spending, $1.6 billion of which will be earmarked for Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.'s southern border.
  6. The budget is also expected to propose major domestic discretionary spending cuts - an earlier version of the budget called for $54 billion in such cuts next year alone.

While the president exhausts himself on a brief overseas trip, his team drops the worst budget proposal ever

President Donald Trump is exhausted. At least that's what an aide told the press as an explanation for why he used the word "Islamic" rather than "Islamist" in his big speech in Saudi Arabia and ended up offending his hosts. After the speech, Trump canceled his appearance at the Tweeps Forum and had his daughter fill in for him. He did manage to handle a weird glowing orb and swayed along with a traditional all-male sword dance along with Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and White House adviser Steve Bannon on the first night but none of that looked very arduous. And the team brought home a major arms deal, with presidential son-in-law Jared Kushner arranging a nice discount for the wealthy Saudi government which will undoubtedly give the war in Yemen a big boost. But the administration didn't come away empty by any means: Read more

Escalating probes rattle Trump and his aides
Politico | Josh Dawsey | 05/22/17

While Trump's foreign trip may lift his spirits, the president can't escape the intensifying investigations he's facing at home.

President Donald Trump seemed rattled before he left Washington Friday afternoon, two people who spoke with him last week said, as he wondered aloud how much investigations into Russia's involvement in the 2016 election might damage his presidency.

One adviser said Trump said in a conversation last week that he felt that "there are a lot of people out to get him," musing that he should not have attacked the intelligence community so vociferously. An administration official who spoke to the president said he "seemed down more than angry," even though Trump defiantly tweeted that he was facing a "witch hunt." ... Read more

Roger Stone On Trump's Saudi Award: 'Makes Me Want To Puke'

Trump "should have demanded Saudis pay for 9/11," the president's confidant argued.

Longtime Donald Trump pal and former campaign adviser Roger Stone says seeing the president receive an award from Saudi Arabia's King Salman "makes me want to puke."

Stone, like many other conservative Trump backers, believes the president may be softening his hard-line stand against Islamic terrorism. ... Read more

Donald Trump Talked Michael Flynn Into White House Job -- and Wants Him Back in the Administration
Daily Beast | Lachlan Markay | 05/18/17

President Donald Trump pressured a "reluctant" Michael Flynn into accepting a job as the White House's top national security official even after Flynn warned the president that he was under investigation over undisclosed lobbying on behalf of a foreign government, The Daily Beast has learned. ...

... But Trump doesn't just hope that Flynn will beat the rap. Several sources close to Flynn and to the administration tell The Daily Beast that Trump has expressed his hopes that a resolution of the FBI's investigation in Flynn's favor might allow Flynn to rejoin the White House in some capacity -- a scenario some of Trump's closest advisers in and outside the West Wing have assured him absolutely should not happen. ...

U.S. aircraft conduct strike on Syrian army convoy
ABC News & AP | author | 05/18/17

The U.S. sent aircraft to strike Syrian regime vehicles on Thursday that violated a deconfliction zone set up around al-Tanf, an army base where special forces are training Syrian militias, CBS News national security correspondent David Martin reports.

American officials and Syrian activists said the strike hit the pro-Syrian government forces as they were setting up fighting positions in a protected area in the desert near the border with Jordan. A bulldozer and a tank were hit, although it was unclear if it struck the Syrian army or just militias allied with the government. ... Read more

BREAKING: The Justice Department Has Named a Special Prosecutor for the Russia Investigation
Esquire | Jack Holmes | 05/17/17

In n a seismic event, the United States Department of Justice just announced a special prosecutor will lead the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, which includes a probe of whether associates of President Donald Trump colluded with Russian officials. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein selected former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who preceded James Comey in that role from 2001 to 2013 and served under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

The move follows months of damaging revelations, salacious leaks, and generalized uncertainty surrounding the investigation, which gradually lost the public's faith as a result. After all, Rosenstein made the selection because the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, was forced to recuse himself after it emerged that he misled a Senate committee about whether he was in contact with Russian officials during the campaign. The Washington Post reported that Sessions met with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on two separate occasions, something Sessions did not include in his testimony. ... Read more

When the World Is Led by a Child
NYTimes | David Brooks | 05/15/17

At certain times Donald Trump has seemed like a budding authoritarian, a corrupt Nixon, a rabble-rousing populist or a big business corporatist.

But as Trump has settled into his White House role, he has given a series of long interviews, and when you study the transcripts it becomes clear that fundamentally he is none of these things.

At base, Trump is an infantalist. There are three tasks that most mature adults have sort of figured out by the time they hit 25. Trump has mastered none of them. Immaturity is becoming the dominant note of his presidency, lack of self-control his leitmotif.

First, most adults have learned to sit still. But mentally, Trump is still a 7-year-old boy who is bouncing around the classroom. ... Read more

Thhe whispers are growing louder that President Donald Trump may be suffering some sort of mental decline and cognitive impairment -- and his longtime pal Roger Stone thinks it's a conspiracy.

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who has known the president for years, has been suggesting on air that Trump is suffering from mental decline and possibly even dementia.

The "Morning Joe" host and others -- including the bloggers Duncan "Atrios" Black and David Pakman -- have compared Trump's recent statements with his past comments, which they've cited as evidence the president may be in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. ... Read more

White House officials spent early Tuesday wondering who was leaking details of President Donald Trump's classified conversations with Russian officials about intelligence shared by the Israelis, and moving to contain the fallout ahead of Trump's planned trip to Jerusalem next week. They spent the evening facing a report that, before he fired FBI director James Comey, Trump directly asked him to stop investigating the Trump campaign's Russia ties -- and worrying what else might yet be revealed.
