Sunday Trumpism: Rallies, Surveys And Lies





Presidents don't hold rallies; dictators do.




_______________________________________

Before we move into the piece, we offer a reminder of the Trump "Lie of the Day."  This episode reaches as far away as Sweden. Click the image below for navigation to Occupy Democrats.



A few days ago he a major current events rarity took place. Fox News's Shepard Smith used eight full minutes of Fox News air-time to contest, refute and expose Trump as the manipulative maniac without. Click the image below



 

"Mainstream Media Accountability Survey"
Would you believe Trump and his team have rehashed and emailed a "media" survey to supporters?  Please read the last sentence once again: "......emailed a "media" survey to supporters." How does that sentence (or the survey promulgation) differ in any way from surveying 6 year old children the night before Christmas regarding their belief in Santa Clause?  

The survey is linked here.













Do you get the drift? A survey disseminated via email, to supporters (assuming also all conservative, with full opportunity to complete the survey as much as the person wishes. What followis is as non-scientific a survey tool as any high school socials since of civics student could create.

A few points beyond the potential survey respondent group (Trump supporters). The survey tool has an obvious leading construction. When posing certain question notice how Fox News was placed as the first potential response. The questions are also construct such that a three year old could easily discern the desire response. Moreover, the tool provides the perfect future solicitation archive. It requests your email address and once done the respondent is forced navigated to a donation page. A bit more about the email address.  The survey offers no valid way to verify the requested email address and there aren't any of the more common email survey verification tools.  

If you have read about the survey to this point, certainly you should take advantage of an NPR piece regarding the revealing offer to manipulate and alter minds.

Quick Hit: Watergate, The Cover-up, Trump's Fired NSC Director and "Fake News?"






Do you see the parallel and the reality of conservatism's inability to shed its authoritarian inclinations?  





The first 36 seconds of the linked video say it all.  The Nixon Tapes and his anti-press/media strategy nd obsession while he sought to fix an election and the subsequent coverup.
