The Daily GOP Ignominious: In The Absence of Truisms Some Combat Trumpism



The Lie As National Policy Begets Failure

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels Third Reich Ministry of Information and Propaganda                           Image result for joseph goebbels


Is there anything about the Trump Administration which is sacred while touching into high character realm of the truth? Trump's continued snipping at the Gold Star widower of Army Sgt. La David Johnson is not only inexcusable, it is indicative of a person with a mind which no longer contains his subconscious. 

How can rational Americans resist the onslaught of Goebbels like propaganda and lies from Trump's information forces?  We can seek credible news sources and credible reporters of current events. But, there is one very critical component to combating the daily barrages to Trumpism: challenging the liars and countering with the truth. 

If we fail to recognize the signs of a out-of-control leader, we fail to accept the first steps towards righting a wrong. The truth is the first line of defense.

Yesterday CNN ran a segment with a one-minute diatribe from a former US INTEL operative, Philip Mudd.  Give the segment a look and listen.
Philip Mudd as a truthsayer and soothsayer is hard to ignore.

Trump's messaging is also offer to those who watch cable news via dedicated demagogues who are paid by the cable networks while defending Trump even if 45 was caught with his pants around his ankles completely compromised.

CNN panel dismantles Trump surrogate, Jack Kingston, as he works to defend all things, Trump.


And it goes on and on.

Crooks & Liars published a piece with the perfect exhibition of how to shut down the political talking head who spews talking points obviously crafted in the White House. The Republican congressman didn't hesitate to throw-out a common lie about GDP growth (3%). When challenged he simply ignored the correction and went about working to occupy segment time with over-talking data and common talking points.


Let's visit with a segment from last night's, If we are failing in reporting on mind-shaping lies from the Administration comparable to Joseph Goebbels' paving a path for Adolf Hitler,  The Rachel Maddow Show. The State Department attempted to offer the world a lie to about the safety of Rex Tillerson's surprise visit to "Kabul." Well, the visit wasn't in Kabul. 



How is it the White House has turned into a carnival-barking cabal of lies to cover what is becoming an obvious Keystone Cop administration? A better question is how so many on the Right actually constitute to fail to see Trump's metaphorical "trees" are hiding a forest of lies, deceit, and misinformation? 

Ad, yes media has a role. Media Matters just published a piece about the extent to which CNN has facilitated its ratings via paying Trump surrogates to go on-camera either with lies or to defend lies.



Trump's world is that of the carnival barker advancing his agenda by hiding the truth while selling the unsuspecting a false reality in his carnival tent.
