The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump's Convention Veracity (Or Lack There Of)

 Image added by The Pardu
Thank you, thank you. Thank you very much.

Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States.

USA, USA, USA, USA, USA.

With an aura of the conservative American (high-end baby boomer) rebel yell: "USA, USA, USA", Donald J. Trump became  the official GOP nominee for the nation's 45th President. He also at that moment solidified and sealed the GOP as the party of American regressivism, developing Bolshevism, and the party stamped itself as the party of the pathological liar. We will hold additional comment about a party with growing fissures of bigotry and racism; we will hold for another more detailed piece. 

As we think of what transpired over the past four days, it is impossible to avoid thoughts of the leader of the Republican National convention. 
Wherefore art thou Reince Priebus and your 2013 "Autopsy." 

The GOP has gone full Paleozoic regarding social progress and cohesiveness in America.

As is always the case, when it comes to a reality TV carnival barker finding success off the psyches of frightened Americans, it pays to check to see what is in the carnival tent.  Frankly, it should be noted with each Trump appearance David (former KKK leader and white supremacists) Duke offers "I could not have said it better." Since we know white supremacists and white nationalists operate from a basis of misinformation focused singularly on the psyches of American whites, informed people should dig deeper for the truth.

Thus, our look at Trump's convention lies. We visited a few sources of credible fact-checking and reported below.  Yet, we should first visit  other fact checkers for Trump's history of lies, deceit, and misinformation.

Trump as Politifact 2015 "Lie of the Year"

WASHINGTON — TRUMP: “Decades of progress made in bringing down crime are now being reversed by this administration’s rollback of criminal enforcement. Homicides last year increased by 17 percent in America’s 50 largest cities. That’s the largest increase in 25 years.”
THE FACTS: A rollback? President Barack Obama has actually achieved some big increases in spending for state and local law enforcement, including billions in grants provided through the 2009 stimulus. While FBI crime statistics for 2015 are not yet available, Trump’s claim about rising homicides appears to come from a Washington Post analysis published in January. While Trump accurately quotes part of the analysis, he omits that the statistical jump was so large because homicides are still very low by historical standards. In the 50 cities cited by the Post, for example, half as many people were killed last year as in 1991.
