The out-of-control Trump saga, our liar-in-chief loves torture, White House Press Secretary Spicer still spreading lies, Trump’s unethical conflicts of interest, expanding the U.S nuclear arsenal, Trump’s moral panic tactics, Trump’s man-baby antics, Trump’s economic nationalist Agenda, a global counter-Trump movement is rising, a new low of attacking children, the potential for another illegal ground war and more.
These are the questions you hear all over Washington right now. Which is strange, because normally you wouldn’t be idly speculating about the end of a presidency barely a month after the inauguration. Certainly, in parts of the country that voted overwhelmingly for Trump, the sense is he’s just getting started.
But the pervasive view in the capital is that President Trump at this point is like a guy behind the wheel who hasn’t slept in a week, surrounded by a small mountain of empty Red Bull cans as he weaves his way across four lanes at night, squinting to read the signs and ignoring the angry blasts of horns.
Sure, it’s a straight drive home on a sparsely populated highway. But at this rate, what are the odds he makes it very far without hurting himself … or someone else?
Some of this is just the lingering shock of the election. A lot of people in Washington are still waking up every morning with a feeling of “this cannot be happening,” and from there it’s a short jump to “this cannot go on for very long.”
But it’s also the sense that Trump himself has skipped right over the opening and middle stages of a normal presidency — honeymoon, legislative push, midterms and reelection — and leaped straight into the self-pitying, paranoid, scandal-shadowed slog of year seven…”
More than 1 million sign petition for minority-elect President Trump to release his tax returns, Micheal Moore’s 10 point plan to protest Trump, Trump’s dubious claims of denouncing anti-semitism – regardless of surrounding himself with alt-right wing malicious miscreants, legal questions surround Trump’s new immigration ban, Trump pushes back against progressive activism, speculation that Trump is a weak President, Trump’s fluctuating popularity – depending on who polls and who is asked, more on Trump’s Stalinist actions, Trump’s tax sham, Trump’s EPA Chief is in bed with the fossil fuel industry, Steve Bannon’s legion of alt-right, anti-Semitic miscreants, growing number of American’s noticing Trump’s increasing leadership incompetence, Trump’s ‘so-called’ angry crowds ignorance, the Manchurian President and more.
“DON’T MESS WITH TAXES. President Trump has taken to saying that no one cares about his taxes. And it’s true that he was able to win office while thumbing his nose at the transparency norm of releasing his tax returns while running for the White House. But the drumbeat of interest in them is not going away, and now the White House petition site registered a new milestone, the pro-transparency Sunlight Foundation noted Monday: The petition to “Immediately release Donald Trump’s full tax returns, with all information needed to verify emoluments clause compliance” passed more than 1 million signatures since it was launched on Inauguration Day. White House petitions need to draw more than 100,000 signatures within 30 days to be considered for an official response from the White House. The previous record holder was a 2012 petition to recognize the Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group, with more than 387,000 signatures, according to a Pew study of the White House petition site.
That Trump tax release petition is just one of a number of ongoing efforts to create public — and legal — pressure on the president to release his tax returns. “Sixteen states and the District of Columbia have proposed bills to prevent access to the presidential ballot without disclosing federal tax returns,” the AP reported Sunday. These measures are unlikely to succeed in most states where they have been proposed even if they make it through state legislatures, because their Republican governors — such as New Jersey’s Chris Christie — are almost certain not to sign them into law. Only five of the 16 states have Democratic governors. But even if only California and New York adopted the measures, turning what was a campaign norm into a campaign law, that would have some kind of impact in a world where the president needs solid support in those states to have a chance of winning the popular vote…”
Holding Trump accountable for his ethics violations, Trump’s dystopian attributes, questions about Trump’s illiteracy and the miscreants he surrounds himself with, and other pernicious psychoses from those surrounding him in the land of delusion.
“The first month of Trump in office unleashed chaos and turmoil in the nation, creating what some called a constitutional crisis. With a series of executive orders threatening women’s reproductive rights, immigrants and sacred water guarded by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, public outrage galvanized in protests across the country.
This new resistance against Trump’s repressive nationalist agenda is very encouraging. Yet, in order for this spark to become a truly transformative force, we need to take a hard look at how we got here. Trump’s outrageous move barring people from seven majority Muslim nations from entering into the United States sent shockwaves nationwide. The truth is that this didn’t emerge out of nowhere. This controversial list of Muslim countries that Trump is now using in his executive order was created by Obama, who was the commander in chief that had bombed 7 countries and expanded the Bush era ‘War on Terror’.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is now receiving a flood of funding after Trump’s unconstitutional immigrant order, had for a long time been fighting the same battle. This nonpartisan civil rights defender had little support when they fought fiercely against the deportation of over 2 million people under Obama. Also, the ubiquitous illegal drone attacks that are now gaining more scrutiny was Obama’s signature policy. The 8-year-old girl that was just killed under Trump was the sister of a 16-year-old American in Yemen, who was a collateral drone strike victim from Obama’s kill list…”
More lying about Obamacare, voter fraud, Bannon’s role in the White House, prepare for a false flag for an illegal power grab from the Trump cabal, ethics violations, conflicts of interest, staff shake ups and more.
“It is time to stop pretending that Donald Trump has the intelligence, integrity, or understanding to be President. He is not smart, he is not a good person, and he is not even a good businessman. If he was smart, he would not talk about how smart he is all the time. If he was a good person, he would not lie all the time. And if he was a good businessman, he would release the tax forms and other records to prove it.
He only knows how to do one thing. It is a technique that got him pretty far on reality television and as a famous-for-being-famous-type celebrity. It has now catapulted him into a job he did not want and is hopelessly inadequate for. He knows it and yet has neither the will nor the ability to learn from his mistakes and rise to the occasion.
The sole and only thing Donald Trump knows how to do is what economists call “externalizing.” That means making others pay for your choices or behavior. He uses this technique in business and in responding to criticism.
Trump is a one-trick pony who externalized his costs over and over to make money by using the bankruptcy and tax laws and underpaying his contractors and those who worked for him to force others to pay the costs of his failures while he got to keep the profits. Those gains are probably less than he claims, of course, because otherwise he would show us the details.
Ah the irony of minority-elect popular vote loser President Donald John Trump bitching about “fake news.” Now that Trump has been sworn in to less than stellar crowds regardless of how much he lies about record attendance, the Trump administration has taken to creating “alternative facts” to rewrite history and fabricate an alternative reality. Listening to Trump’s dubious claims of ‘media dishonesty’ and ‘fake news’ would be hilarious were it not for the fact that in addition to having Twitter to spread his fake news and lies, he has the most powerful office in the country to expand his delusional agenda.
Trump is profoundly corrupt and ignorant enough to believe his own narcissistic alternate version of reality and is more dishonest than the media he complains about. Less than 24 hours after Trump took office White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer destroyed all his credibility by blatantly lying about the attendance at Trump’s meager inauguration. When Spicer’s failed attempts of ignorantly trying to sell his boss’s delusional reality failed, Trump’s subservient Chief propagandist Kellyanne Conway, who also serves as White House counselor, went on America’s Sunday morning political theater TV and defended Spicer’s decision to provide ‘alternate facts.’
To understand and defeat the pathological liar-in-chief in the White House and the propaganda pushers filling his key cabinet positions, it’s important to learn how they disseminate their lies. Our delusional leader and Kellyanne Conway are responsible for most of the lies, though Trump’s Chief strategist Steve Bannon, a White alt-right Nationalist who was registered to vote in 2 states, and was the former editor of Breitbart – a right-wing conspiracy theory pushing publication that will be increasingly utilized to push Trump’s lies – will also play a major role in pushing the White House’s fallacies. The top 3 strategies used by Trump and his ilk include: Lie, repeat the lie, then try to deflect, distract and divert the lie. When that fails the next strategy includes bullying and attacking those that dispute the easily refutable lies so don’t get confused by their duplicitous bull shit.
A MINORITY-ELECT PRESIDENT WITH NO MANDATE
It can be challenging to keep up with all the Trump administration’s lies so seeking the truth will require keeping close tabs on everything he does. Like many before our minority-elect, popular vote losing President, Trump says one thing and does another. Actions really do speak louder than words so no matter how disingenuously Trump lies, his actions will reveal his true intentions. Deflating Trump’s lies will also require fighting back and holding the fraudulent companies and political pundits accountable for their actions and lies (a good place to start is educating yourself on the Heritage Foundation and the American Legislative Exchange Council which have been advising our dimwitted, thin-skinned president all along, then get to know Bannon and Conway better as they will continue playing crucial roles in Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda).
