It’s no secret that Donald Trump adores Fox News because they lie for him in the stories they report. Finding angles to make him seem like he’s actually a great President. So, basically, the FAKE NEWS that Trump loves to speaks of.
People always question why the hell would these top journalists and political commentators throw their careers on the line for this man. Well, that’s because he’s paying these folks and we have receipts. According to NPR, Mark Serrano, a conservative political consultant was on the payroll of the Trump 2020 re-election campaign this spring, while also defending the president in political commentary on the Fox Business Network.
This all makes sense. Especially because who in their right mind would really defend Trump’s crooked ways and bad decisions? Someone who is getting paid big bucks to, that’s who. Trump’s 2020 campaign made two payments to Serrano’s company, ProActive Communications LLC: $20,000 on April 17 of this year and $10,000 on May 30. And that was at a time the top commentator was making frequent appearances on the Fox Business Network to back his buddy, Trump.
Just back in May, Serrano was defending Trump’s twitter habit while talking to Fox’s Neil Cavuto, saying,
“The president turns to Twitter for a very good reason. You know, it’s because he knows that the American people don’t believe this fake news story about Russian collusion.”
Well, Mark if that were true, how do explain the fact amid this Russia scandal, Trump’s had the lowest six-month approval rating of any president in polls dating back 70 years. ABCNews reported last month that 72 percent think Trump benefited from the collusion, and 67 percent think members of his campaign intentionally helped those efforts.
The Washington Post was the first to blow up Serrano’s spot. Then he got in his feelings, took a page from Trump and called the story fake news. He also released a statement via Twitter saying,
What I find unbelievable and troubling is that at a time with serious challenges facing our country, The Post wants to focus on this Fake News. Stories such as this make me more committed than ever to support the President and his ambitious positive agenda for America.
Even with the proof of the shady business relationship Serrano and Trump have, he still denies it. The Post even tried contacting Serrano by phone to get his statement on this matter, like a journalist does, but they never got a callback. So stop all your theatrics Serrano, you were caught red handed. This goes to show that you and other Fox News affiliates aren’t CREDIBLE. On top of that, it’s clear Trump’s foundation is crumbling as he has to resort to paying people to support him. Just pathetic.
Bloomberg: 23 Trump Businesses Receive Subpoenas In Emoluments Case
Subpoenas are being sent to 23 Trump businesses requiring them to preserve records that may be sought by the attorneys general from the District of Columbia and Maryland in a lawsuit accusing the president of profiting from his office.
U.S. District Judge Peter Messitte on Tuesday issued a two-paragraph order granting the Democratic officials’ request for permission to serve those subpoenas, which don’t call for the immediate production of any information.
Not really earth-shattering, but the judge is not likely to do this and then grant a motion to dismiss.
Trump Invites Religious Leaders To White House To Praise Him For Harvey Efforts; He Is Sick (VIDEO)
President Trump signed a proclamation to make Sunday a “National Day of Prayer” in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
Trump was joined by religious leaders and members of faith-based organizations in the Oval Office on Friday to announce the proclamation.
In honor of the celebration, Trump made every religious leader who attended surround him and profusely thank him for his response to Hurricane Harvey, despite not doing anything in his first visit to Texas (unless you count bragging about his crowd size, of course).
After he made everyone suck to him, Trump turned it over to Pastor (and Fox News contributor) Robert Jeffress to lead the room in prayer, with some placing their hands on the president as if he is The Pope.
Watch the video, here:
Special Counsel Subpoenas Trump Bank Accounts, Phone Calls, Trump Threatens To Fire Him
Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s decision to personally go after Trump for possible criminal acts and obstruction of justice has marked a turning point in the Russia collusion investigation, which until recently has only focused on Russia’s meddling into the 2016 presidential election.
Now – Mueller has issued subpoenas of President Trump’s personal bank accounts, along with his phone records. Since it’s an official court order, refusal to comply can result in contempt of court charge, punishable by jail, a fine, or both.
The move is expected to put Trump’s personal finances under a microscope. So far, Trump has been the only president in recent history to refuse to divulge his tax returns. The expanding probe is likely to reveal a ton of dirt from the president’s financial past.
Aides close to the president indicated he’s “furious,” and is threatening to fire Mueller. Trump doesn’t believe Mueller is conducting an impartial investigation of him and accused Mueller of conducting a “witch hunt.” Everyone close to the president is strongly advising against the move, and say that it would prompt a “nuclear bomb” to go off in Washington, making Trump’s impeachment for obstruction of justice that much more likely.
Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, even shot down Trump’s suggestion saying in effect that he would ignore Trump if he’s given the order to terminate Mueller.
“As long as I’m in this position, he’s not going to be fired without good cause,” Mr. Rosenstein said. “I’m not going to follow any orders unless I believe those are lawful and appropriate orders,” he added, emphasizing that the attorney general “actually does not know what we’re investigating.”
But – that’s the thing – Trump is working hard to find “good cause.” He has accused members of Mueller’s ever growing team of donating to Democrats in the past. He even tried to connect Comey with Mueller by saying they had a personal relationship with one another because they worked together at one point in the past.
Mueller has added a whole host of financial experts experienced in complex fraud and international bribery cases, including Andrew Weissmann, criminal law expert Michael Dreeban, and Justice Department trial attorney Lisa Page. If Trump has something to hide, they are sure to find them.
So far the investigation has been guarded in secrecy but we do know that Mueller met up with Senate-Russia investigators in a secure room recently – the first time they have met since Mueller has headed the probe.
And, we also know that there’s one particular exchange that Mueller is placing an enormous amount of interest in. That’s concerning a conversation Trump had with Director of National Intelligence Daniel Coats and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Trump asked everyone to leave the room except those two and personally asked him if he could intervene with Comey to get the FBI to back off its investigation of Michael Flynn. Then a day or two after that Trump called both of them asking them to issue public statements saying there was no coordination, even though the investigation was ongoing.
Right now the White House is remaining quiet, referring all questions to Trump’s personal lawyer Marc Kasowitz. Instead of addressing the merits of the investigation, Kasowitz and his firm are instead focusing on the leaks coming out of the FBI. It’s an unusual legal defense.
“The FBI leak of information regarding the President is outrageous, inexcusable and illegal,” said Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Kasowitz.
In a further blow to the White House, it also doesn’t look like they will be able to invoke executive privilege in regards to the president’s personal conversations with his subordinates. Experts rightly point out that the Supreme Court has already ruled on this issue and officials cannot use privilege when it involves a criminal case.
Millions of Dollars Worth of Crops Are Rotting in California All Thanks to Trump [Details]
President Trump and AG Jeff Sessions think kicking Mexicans out of America is the best thing since sliced bread. Their blatant racism knows no bounds and also doesn’t consider the consequences of relieving the entire country of Mexican immigrants. One debilitating result of their anti-immigration policies/rhetoric is the millions of dollars worth of rotting crops in California.
In 2015, more Mexican immigrants exited the U.S. than entered while Obama was in office. In fact, Obama deported more illegal immigrants than any other president before him. But this is Donald Trump; he thinks anything Obama can do, he can do better.
Farmers are scrambling to find workers to harvest their crops. Entire fields of fruits and vegetables are being left to rot, which hits farmers’ pockets the hardest.
Claire Wineman of the Grower-Shipper Association of Santa Barbara/San Luis Obispo County said, “It’s absolutely been detrimental to the agricultural community. To be able to continue to grow and harvest the fruits and vegetables, it made it difficult to have day-to-day certainty.”
Two California counties have already lost over $13 million in crops. In the Golden State, 9 out of 10 farm workers are immigrants.
Trump recently announced that he wants to go a step further and cut legal immigration in half. This is Trump’s isolationist agenda hard at work.

Donald Trump strands reporters in windowless room after Russian oligarch’s plane arrives in New Jersey
On Friday, just as Donald Trump was flying into New Jersey for the start of his seventeen day golf vacation, a private plane belonging to Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich also arrived at the same Newark airport (link). There is no proof that Abramovich was even on his plane, let alone that he traveled on to Trump’s golf resort. But newly suspicious behavior on Trump’s part reveals that he’s definitely trying to hide something big from the media.
Today, Donald Trump ditched the traveling press pool by leaving them in a windowless room at a Marriott located twelve miles away from his Bedminster golf resort, thus ensuring that they had no ability to see anything that might have transpired at his golf property today (source: Celeste Katz). This will cause any number of skeptics to ask aloud if Trump was trying to prevent the media from seeing Abramovich, or whoever might have arrived on Abramovich’s plane.
If this story sounds oddly familiar, it’s because something strikingly similar has happened before. Back in February, traveling reporters revealed that they’d been ditched in a Mar-a-Lago basement with the windows blacked out. This was the same weekend in which the private plane belonging to another Russian oligarch, Dmitry Rybolovlev, flew into a nearby airport. There was widespread suspicion that Trump was trying to prevent the media from seeing Rybolovlev’s arrival at Mar-a-Lago. However, it was never proven that Rybolovlev was at Mar-a-Lago, and he’s since insisted that the flight was a mere coincidence.
But now that Donald Trump is once again ditching the traveling reporters in a windowless room during a golf vacation, at a time when a Russian oligarch’s private plane has just arrived at a nearby airport, it’s going to raise a whole new round of questions about what Trump is hiding and why.
Mike Pence’s AOL email scandal is back again, and this time it could take him down
Back in November, Palmer Report brought you the story of Mike Pence’s email scandal, which at the time was largely only making headlines in his home state of Indiana (link). Pence had been using an America Online email account to conduct state business while he was Governor. The scandal died down after he went to court and was successful in temporarily blocking the release of those emails. But nine months later, that effort has now failed.
Mike Pence has ultimately had to turn over his AOL emails to the State of Indiana, which is now about to release them to the public, according to a new report from the prominent local Indy Star newspaper (link). It’s still not known what’s in these emails. But Pence’s decision to go to court in November to suppress their release, knowing how bad it would look that he was trying to hide private emails after he had just finished attacking Hillary Clinton over her emails – particularly at a time when he was supposed to be busy running Donald Trump’s transition team – has long stood out as suspicious.
It stands to reason that Mike Pence cared a great deal about making sure the contents of these emails never saw the light of day. Was he trying to hide something scandalous, illegal, or just personally embarrassing? It looks like we’re about to find out. And it comes at a particularly tricky time for Pence, as it’s just been revealed that he’s gearing up to run for president in 2020 (link) under the presumption that Donald Trump will be sunk by then.
Meanwhile, as we reported last week, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s latest moves suggest that he might end up taking down Mike Pence in addition to Donald Trump (link), based on Pence’s role in the Russia coverup. And now on top of it, Pence’s email scandal is suddenly back as well.
