Obama had in de Rasmussen poll precies 8 jaar geleden een approval rating van 48%. Dus zelfs in de meest biased poll lukt het Trump niet om meer dan een schamele 2% voorsprong te houden. Uberhaupt het sneue vergelijken al.

quote:A HIGHER LOYALTY - Truth, Lies, and Leadership
By James Comey - 290 pages. Flatiron Books. $29.99
Review by By MICHIKO KAKUTANI
In his absorbing new book, “A Higher Loyalty,” the former F.B.I. director James B. Comey calls the Trump presidency a “forest fire” that is doing serious damage to the country’s norms and traditions.“This president is unethical, and untethered to truth and institutional values,” Comey writes. “His leadership is transactional, ego driven and about personal loyalty.”
Decades before he led the F.B.I.’s investigation into whether members of Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to influence the 2016 election, Comey was a career prosecutor who helped dismantle the Gambino crime family; and he doesn’t hesitate in these pages to draw a direct analogy between the Mafia bosses he helped pack off to prison years ago and the current occupant of the Oval Office.
A February 2017 meeting in the White House with Trump and then chief of staff Reince Priebus left Comey recalling his days as a federal prosecutor facing off against the Mob: “The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth.” An earlier visit to Trump Tower in January made Comey think about the New York Mafia social clubs he knew as a Manhattan prosecutor in the 1980s and 1990s — “The Ravenite. The Palma Boys. Café Giardino.”SPOILERquote:"The silent circle of assent. The boss in complete control. The loyalty oaths. The us-versus-them worldview. The lying about all things, large and small, in service to some code of loyalty that put the organization above morality and above the truth."
quote:The Supreme Court is set to hear a seemingly minor case later this month on the status of administrative judges at the Securities and Exchange Commission, an issue that normally might only draw the interest of those accused of stock fraud.
But the dispute turns on the president's power to hire and fire officials throughout the government. And it comes just as the White House is saying President Trump believes he has the power to fire special counsel Robert S. Mueller III.
Trump's Solicitor Gen. Noel Francisco intervened in the SEC case to urge the high court to clarify the president's constitutional power to fire all "officers of the United States" who "exercise significant authority" under the law.
"The Constitution gives the president what the framers saw as the traditional means of ensuring accountability: the power to oversee executive officers through removal," he wrote in Lucia vs. SEC. "The president is accordingly authorized under our constitutional system to remove all principal officers, as well as all 'inferior officers' he has appointed."
In addition to representing the administration before the Supreme Court, Francisco, a former law clerk for the late Justice Antonin Scalia, could be in line to oversee the Mueller inquiry if Deputy Atty. Gen. Rod Rosenstein is fired. Atty. Gen Jeff Sessions has recused himself from the investigation.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell
quote:An executive whose bank lent as much as $16 million to former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort around the time the banker was seeking to become Army secretary called Army personnel shortly after the election to inquire about the confirmation process, according to information provided by the Pentagon to congressional Democrats.
Stephen Calk, the chief executive of the Federal Savings Bank and a former campaign adviser to President Donald Trump, also spoke to the Army’s chief of staff eight days after the 2016 election during a luncheon in Chicago, where the bank is located, Democrats said a Pentagon official told them.
The official’s details on the interactions came in response to Democrats’ request for information about Mr. Calk’s contacts with the department, and were included in a new letter sent by the Democrats to Mr. Calk requesting more information.SPOILER“The fundamental cause of the trouble in the modern world today is that the stupid are cocksure while the intelligent are full of doubt.”— Bertrand Russell
Kaine to oppose Pompeo for secretary of statetwitter:timkaine twitterde op zondag 15-04-2018 om 16:55:02 Now more than ever, we need a Secretary of State who will stand strong for vigorous diplomacy, not exacerbate President Trump’s proclivity towards conflict. Unfortunately, Mike Pompeo has often demonstrated a similar disposition against diplomacy, so I will oppose his nomination. reageer retweet
quote:Sen. Tim Kaine announced on Sunday he would oppose Mike Pompeo to be secretary of state, further complicating the CIA director's confirmation prospects on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“We have a president who is anti-diplomacy. And I worry that Mike Pompeo has shown the same tendency to oppose diplomacy," Kaine, a member of the Foreign Relations Committee who voted for Pompeo to take over the CIA, said on CBS' "Face the Nation.”
"I don’t want a secretary of state who is going to exacerbate [President Donald Trump's] tendencies," the Democratic senator from Virginia said, noting Pompeo's opposition to the Iran nuclear deal and for taking military action without the approval of Congress.
In addition to Kaine, fellow panel members Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.), have signaled they would also vote against Pompeo's nomination.
Even if Pompeo doesn't win the committee's endorsement, Senate Republican leaders will still likely bring his nomination to the floor, where he could be approved.
“We're going to have a floor vote. I'm telling what you my vote is,” Kaine said.
