As Trump's World Turns: Sarah Huckabee Sanders Purveyor Of The Lie

The Life Of The Presstitute

Do you recall this White House presser from 2017? Of course, you don't but you certainly know Trump's White House Secretary is the trumpeter for all things Trump. that means Huckabee Sanders has a job essential skills ability at lying.

"I heard from countless member of the FBI who are grateful," Sarah Sanders on Comey's firing, which contradicts McCabe's Senate testimony


After the release of the Muller Reports, Trump's presser was challenged by the host of Good Morning America.

"Why can't you acknowledge that what you said then was not true?"
After Mueller report release, presses Sarah Sanders on her statement about FBI employees after firing of James Comey. Watch the full interview:

While we shouldn't expect any White House Press secretary to visit the podium and point fingers at their boss (the President) with charges of lying of misstating reality tot he public, we surely should expect our players to the Presser yield some degree of honesty. That isn't the world in which Sanders lives and works, and she performs her duties quite within parameters set by her lying boss and his cabal.

The verbiage on Page 72 of the report was clearly inserted by the Mueller team and even more clearly aimed at purveying the reality of Sanders and the White House.

AS this is a quick hit, let's end on the following as proof positive of the intricacies of Sander's job description.  When you have to defend what follows, one has to be a willing liar.

Really America, really.

As Trump's World Turns: "The People of France"

Did Trump ever actually speak as such about the Americans who live in Puerto Rico after the hurricanes hit the US territory?

How about his talk with the "President of the Virgin Islands"?

How about the reality the now destroyed Cathedral is of the utmost importance to Catholics acorss the globe?

As Trump's World Turns: Threat or No Threat

You decide... and recall communication involves perception. What seems innocent to you could be marching orders for others.

Over the weekend someone in Trump's cabal created a video which is hard to distinguish from the work of Joseph Goebbels and his work to advance the agenda of one Adolf Hitler. While Trump's Tweet (as follows) is void of direct threats, he has a willing sect of followers who take his veiled messages and seeks to weaponize his messages. The Congresswoman from Michigan is receiving an increasing number of death threats. Herewith is the video obviously created by some minister of messaging
Congresswoman Omar has responded. 
The White House issued a statement indicating Trump wishes "ill will" to Congresswoman Omar:  PBS.

What a statement. Trump and his message ministers know full well plausible denial after delivering messages with targeted meanings are accepted by millions. The problem; the Right has a noticeable set of people who react to Trumps messaging in the most twisted of ways.

An amalgam set of reminders regarding Trump's messaging. Time.

In Fayetteville, North Carolina, we saw and heard this.

While we could go on and one lets end with this reminder.

Do you remember Cesar Sayoc?  The avid Trump supporter and rally attendee sent more than a dozen explosive devices to media, members of Congress and liberal entertainers.  

FBI Director Wray.

Yes, Trump's messaging carries dire consequences.

According to Politifacts, and for openness and credibility Omar didn't offer an accurate set of words regarding the inception CAIR, Council on American-Islamic Relations. While the Congresswoman should seek to deliver more accurate messaging, I do not feel it worthwhile nor productive to run with the quote Trump's message developers chose to hand him over the weekend.

As Trump's World Turns: Father Born In Germany?

The following cartoon is brilliant. Brilliant in a few ways but most of all its deep meaning should ring a bell for rational people. The meaning won't ring well for most Trump supporters based on their deep-rooted affinity for all things "white" and their possible aversion to all things nonwhite. While we live in a world which requires dicing the previous sentence into degrees of bigotry, the sentence nonetheless stands as an American reality.

Trump gained international attention and deep favor from millions in the United States for his racist banter and politicking against Barack Obama based on the reality of his fathers African birth ad Kenyan citizenship. 

The Guardian UK

Politifact published a review of Trumps repeat lies and posted with reference "Pants On Fire."

Says his father, Fred Trump, was "born in a very wonderful place in Germany."

Donald Trump on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2019 in remarks to reporters

 Pants on Fire!

Despite what Donald Trump keeps saying, his father was born in New York, not Germany

In 1885, Friedrich Trump — the father of the late Fred Trump and the grandfather of President Donald Trump — immigrated from Germany to New York.
Then 16, Friedrich left before he could legally have been conscripted into the German military service, according to journalist Gwenda Blair, author of The Trumps: Three Generations of Builders and a President.
Some years later, Friedrich and his homesick wife, Elizabeth, tried to return to Germany, but their stay was short and they were eventually deported back to the United States. Not only had Friedrich, now too old to be drafted, not done his military service, but he had become a U.S. citizen, Blair explained to PolitiFact.
Why the history lesson?
Well, on April 2, 2019, (which happens to be International Fact-Checking Day), in making remarks to reporters about Germany, referred to his father, Fred, and said:
"My father is German, right? Was German, and born in a very wonderful place in Germany."
A flurry of news reports quickly declared that the president had uttered a falsehood about his father’s birthplace  — again. The stories pointed out that, as has been reported many times, Fred Trump was born in New York. Just as his New York Times obituary says he was.
(Interestingly, as the New York Times obit notes, Fred Trump at one stage of his life took to telling people he was of Swedish origin. Baird told us that was likely due to his business dealings with many Jewish people in New York and to anti-German sentiment in the United States during and after World War II.)
As for the president’s claim about his father, when PolitiFact inquired to the White House, a spokesman did not respond.
Blair, speaking to PolitiFact from New York’s Central Park, said there’s no doubt that Elizabeth Trump was pregnant with Fred while she and Friedrich were still in Germany.
But there is also no question, Blair attested, that the couple had returned to New York by the time Fred was born.
"As we know, that does not make him born in Germany," Blair said. "Conceived in Germany? OK. But, born in Germany, no."
Newsweek and The Independent reported that Trump has made the erroneous claim about his father at least four times since taking office.
Each time, according to Newsweek, he has been either criticizing Germany's contribution to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) or the European Union's trade relationship with the U.S.
Our ruling
Donald Trump said his father was born in Germany  — even though, as has been reported many times -- Fred Trump was born in New York.
It’s unclear why the president keeps repeating it, but it’s wrong.
Pants on Fire.

As Trump's World Turns; Puerto Rico "That County"

Earlier today, I saw an introduced to a segment on MSNBC with a guest who serves in Trumps Communications Department. Yes, of course, I turned the channel. I really don't take to carnival barking and I sure don't make a habit of listening to documented and proven liars. The words just slide off my gray matter like a Slinky (tm)  of an oiled set of stairs.

The guest was Hogan Gidley as a guest on Hallie Jackson's morning show. As I look back, maybe I should have sat through the segment. Gidley joined trump in subliminal messaging regarding the unincorporated territory of Puerto Rico.

The following segment is 3:21 minutes long. The broadcast segment is, in fact, a moment in US history as Gidley referred to Puerto Rico as "that country" twice in the three minutes.

Did I mention Gidley followed Trump's leadership?

The Raw Story also ran a piece on Gidley's remarks.

Is it possible to avoid the perception of racism and white nationalism from the White House? If you can get past the Puerto Rico comments via Trump and his spox, you should probably seek an examination and possible medication for bigotry.  Bigotry is in the racist DNA chain. You don't want the disease to metastasized to full-blown racists.

Trump's and Gidley's remarks are a far greater matter than a Freudian Slip.  We have a mindset elected into the US Presidency.


As Trump's World Turns: Secrets And Lies (The Security Clearance Scandal)

Image result for top secret security clearance
Top Secret is a more stringent clearance. A Top Secret, or "TS", clearance, is often given as the result of a Single Scope Background Investigation, or SSBI. Top Secret clearances, in general, afford one access to data that affects national security, counterterrorism/counterintelligence, or other highly sensitive data.
In brief, why would a security clearance be denied?

According to Dennis Copeland for Quora:
...... essentially any serious contact with law enforcement (beyond routine traffic offenses); any observed problems with alcohol or drugs (discovered through interviews with friends, neighbors, others); erratic behavior; untrustworthy behavior; ties to, or close family in foreign lands; and debt/money problems are among the most frequent reasons for disqualifying someone.
If there is any doubt as to why such criteria exist, think in terms of blackmail and proven untrustworthiness. Think about the person whose life is consumed with issues of money. Think about the person who would sell her/his soul for a few thousand dollars. Or, in days of old think about being LGBTQ and hiding your life from general knowledge.

...John Anthony Walker Jr. (July 28, 1937 – August 28, 2014) was a United States Navychief warrant officer and communications specialist convicted of spying for the Soviet Union from 1968 to 1985.[2]
...In the June 2010 issue of Naval History Magazine, John Prados, a senior fellow with the National Security Archive in Washington, D.C., pointed out that after Walker introduced himself to Soviet officials, North Korean forces seized USS Pueblo in order to make better use of Walker's spying. Prados added that North Korea subsequently shared information gleaned from the spy ship with the Soviets, enabling them to build replicas and gain access to the U.S. naval communications system, which continued until the system was completely revamped in the late 1980s.[6]
John Walker was turned into authorities via his wife.

If you have a few extra mintues checkout this link with Americans who spied for other naitons. 

If the importance of security clearances and the risk to the nation isn't clear to you, you also may not realize as Donald Trump's hairdo is a comb-over.  Well, I could have used other analogies but some would require far too much linking and verbiage (e.g, Trump: bigotry, lying, indecency, Putin stooge).

Why would the election of Donald Trump take the nation to what follows?  Meet Tricia Newbold, an 18-year government employee.

Tricia Newbold
This past January Ms. Newbold was suspended from her White House position for defying orders to issue a security clearance to a few Trump officials despite FBI background security concerns. Jared Kushner is reported to have received clearances without regard for cautions from the FBI.

Celeb Daily News posted a video segment on Youtube which captures the released of Ms. Newbold while clearly stating issues related to Kushner's clearance. 

The full scope of the lax security process from Trump's White House is delineated via this NBC News report.

White House whistleblower says Trump administration overturned 25 ..

When will the nation come to its senses and act as if it has had enough?  

The obvious is obvious.
