As Trump's World Turns: The Corrupt, The Felons, The News Makers, And The Swamp




A  Culture of Corruption

Image may contain: 6 people, text

First 30-seconds of Fox News, Hannity, and GOP Operative Newt Gingrich. Yes, Manafort (the felon) helped get Trump elected.


Alas.....

If you were raised without ever hearing the following you certainly were not raised in the United States:


" Birds of a feather flock together."  

Allow me to apply that old adage to Trumpism.  I will do so with a couple of questions.  

Do you believe it is possible for Trump to literally have surrounded himself with sleazy, fraudulent, deceitful and deplorable characters without also having an inner core which touches into an underbelly of life in the US?
Does it in any way surprise you the first two members of the GOP House to openly support Trump for president face charges from the strong arm of US Law?

If the questions don't point to a sebaceous cyst Trump voters and the nation's approximately 90 too 100 million nonvoters failed to consider, think what follows.


All of that said, let's visit with Trump's record-breaking and historic August 21, 2018.




CNN Cohen Pleads Guilty.  Note the 50-second mark of the following video.



......'his co-conspirator and/or his aider and abetter' was the President. Actually, the co-conspirator was the candidate for President on the Republican ticket; Cohen's one of three clients: Donald J. Trump.


All The President's Men

With the hour in a court in Virginia, Trump's former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, was receiving the verdicts of his 18 count court case.  


The following CNN video is our choice to encapsulate the essence of Trump's day int eh swamp. The video again touches on Cohen' plea while offering a noteworthy report of the Manafort guilty verdicts. We also find the video a good choice as we consider Trump's August 21, day in the swamp and ...All The President's Men (to date).


Our intent was to quickly with video deal with yesterday's historic day in Trump's world. A complete review of yesterday should also include touching on yet another Republicans caught up in felonious acts regarding campaign funds.

The second Congressman to openly support Trump for president has been charged along with his wife.  The SWAMP......


Felonious members of Congress aside, it is literally unfathomable the number and scope of Trump's political apparatus who are being scrutinized or charged with crimes.  In addition, we have members of his cabinet who have been or are under investigation for misuse and abuse of their cabinet positions. And we have a literal cadre of Trump talking heads all over cable news (especially CNN and Fox News) spewing Trump propaganda which could rival that of Hitler's Joseph Goebbels. 

Watch as CNN's Anderson Copper challenges the talking-point spewing Rick "BLAH PeopleSantorum, linked here.

Let's close with a view worthy segment from Don Lemon's CNN Tonight.

One more. I know you have to get back to work, but consider Lemon's "All The President's Lies

"......Only the best."

Trump Smorgasbord: Russian Asbestos, Fox News Racism, Suppress The Media





Image may contain: text

Yes, the meme is based on fact.  Check Snopes dot com.
____________________________


Now for a less popular topic which reaches across the full spectrum of US society. The far-reaching issue of race in the United States cannot be avoided and it can not escape its growing home on the social and political Right.

As you view what follows, notice the insertion of new phraseology from the caverns of Trumpism: "Legal immigration." A phrase introduced by Donald Trump over the past couple of weeks.



Alas, what does it take for lowlife white supremacist like David Duke to come to the same level of Ingraham?

Now watch as an MSNBC host, Nicole Wallace, addressed Fox New's growing support for the racist fissures of Trumpism. Of particular note is her unabashed unwillingness to accept fellow conservatives, Charley Sikes', characterization of Ingraham's remarks as "nativism." Nativism? How often we forget white people are not US natives and any attempt to gaslight or whitewash, or, less inflammatory use of the word racism is ridiculous.

A Media Matters take on Ingraham's Fox News segment.


If you are thinking the matter is isolated and unworthy of your time. CNN offers a stark example of what Hillary Clinton characterized as a "deplorable".

CNN ran the segment on the Erin Burnett Out Front show. (linked here) on the Right and may on the Left work at avoiding the reality of growing Nazis in the US, take a look at what follows.

Image may contain: 1 person, meme and text I posted that meme, but I know and you know Trump is carnival barking about what he called "Fake News." 

While real media is reporting matters critical to our lives of Trumpism, wouldn't you know Trump's mission (along with his closest advisers) don't relish the scrutiny? In fact, Trump's daily rant against the media is leading to increasing numbers of US conservatives who accept the prospect Trump could shut down all media which views him unfavorably. Imagine Fox News, Alex Jones and various A radio host as your only source of information. Actually, information isn't the correct word; it is more aptly called propaganda

Watch and listen...AXIOS

As Trump's World Turns: To Russia With Love




No automatic alt text available.Who really needs words these days? From a president who appears to idolize authoritarian dictators and despots through a group of US members of Congress begging for an audience with Putin only to be relegated to party officials who mocked them.  And then there is this:

As Trump's World Turns: Michael Cohen.Consigliere VIDEO







Is The Consigliere Ready To Speak?

Related image Image result for the godfather and his consigliere

As the backside of the following story unfolds, most of us can look back and think: well, of course, Trump knew of the meeting. As the meeting participants prepared for their 'dirt" session Trump gleefully stood on-camera and promised ''dirt on Clinton".

Recall?
Last night CNN broke a story which has both sides of the Trump "payoff of the Playboy Model (bunny)" issue scrambling to control the media. Trump's camp will not admit to leaking the information. Michael Cohen's Camp indicate being

The CNN Breaking News of last night.


Well, now we have an admission of knowing via both camps based on the backside efforts to control the story. Does it actually matter who leaked the story?

It actually does matter. Let's see how MSNBC's Rachel Maddow covered the story as it broke on a competing CNN Show.




After the revelation, Trump's Number One Cable News rationalizer and supposed lawyer visited with Chris Cuomo. The segment is three minutes plus in run-time, and most of the talking is mere host/guest verbal jousting, at one moment Cuomo nails the segment regarding its worthiness regarding the Cohen revelation.

Yes, Trump has a credibility problem unsurpassed by any US President since 1776.

Trump's Politifact File


Giuliani said Cohen is a pathological liar.  If you look above it is obvious who is the pathological liar.

NATO And Trump..An Embarrassing Rump





"Rump" Double Entendre and Pun; Unavoidable

Do you recall the following from Trump's first NATO visit after taking Office in 2017? Leadership?

While the NATO conference in 2017 included fr more stupefying acts from Trump, let's move into today's visit.

First NATO, an alliance which offers major security to the United States.  



What follows is a composition of social media posts and a few words from our perspective.  

NATO countries came to the aid of post-Katrina Gulf Coast states.   A couple of NATO nation's jumped to support the US after the 91 attack. 
“Germany, as far as I’m concerned, is captive to Russia because it’s getting so much of its energy from Russia,” Trump told NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in a fiery on-camera exchange that was among the harshest in the history of the post-World War II alliance.

A perspective worth a mention. 
No matter the source of what follows, it is a must watch and less than one minute.

Did Fox News's Shepard Smith actually take 10 minutes to fact-check Trump's NATO diaster?
