As Trump'sTurns World Turns: The Manifestation Of Racism And "Send Her Back"

... And the growing "Lie Count"

It is July 18, 2019; a full 35 years after Trump assume the desk in the Oval Office Since his inauguration, the nation's 45th President has surpassed all record keeping of lies while in office he has surpassed the level of past lies comparable to watching a Hare and a Turtle 100 Yard Dash.

According to the Washington Post, the Trump "Lie Count" was at 10,796 lies during the late spring of this year. Surely he has surpassed 11,000 to date Or, maybe his early morning Oval Office lie regarding his latest racist rally (oozfest), took him over the 11,000 lies level.

Let's visit with our lying president and his Oval Office camera opportunity.

Before viewing the video from the Oval Office, considering running the 46-second video at the tip of this post. Notice Trump has his wife very visible over his shoulder. We should recall the primary item of his verbal scorn, the congresswoman from Minnesota became a US citizen well before Trump's wife secured her "EINSTEIN VISA". Extraordinary ability? Really?

The lie? "I tried to shut-off the chant".

He has shown his true colors (excuse the pun) before. Here is but one example.

As Trump's World Turns: The Art of the Lie And Defense Of Two Allies

Is there any wonder Trump would draw four Pinocchios from the Washinton Post fact-finders?  If you are thinking, "yes" quite a surprise, take a few minutes to see how 45 manages his life as President of the United States.

The world awakened to the daily diarrhea of Trump Tweets.  From comment about Asad to an FBI Probe to an example of banana republic justice system tampering akin to that of Putin's Russia.  Take a read of pure and unadulterated defense of the indefensible.  In one case, a US congressman's charged with insider trading (of which there are audio tape and video documentation). Another case involces a California congressman who has practically pleaded guilty via shifting total blame for campaign funds abuse to his wife. 

Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff......
Trump offers-up a defense which includes the reality the two potential felons were early su[p[prters, as well as bemoaning the potential loss of two safe Congressional seats. Actually, there is no way the New York state seat will be lost, and I personally doubt Duncan's seat, if left vacant, will be won by a Democrat. Nonetheless, the sleepless and frightened Trump places politics well beyond the law.  The nation's 45th President opts for attacking Jeff Sessions, via the use of two blatantly shameful Republicans for sake of tickling his base.
Aol via Reuters offers a quick read summary of the charges against the two members of Congress Trump has used as a tool against his Attorney General.

Trump accuses Sessions of hurting U.S. Republican congressional races


In Aug. 8, Congressman Christopher Collins, a Republican who was candidate Trump's first supporter in the House, was charged with participating in an insider trading scheme involving an Australian biotechnology company on whose board he served. Collins has denied wrongdoing but will not seek re-election. 
Despite Trump's claim that both investigations began under Democratic President Barack Obama, Collins was charged over trades in June 2017 - nearly six months after Trump took office. 
On Aug. 23, Republican Representative Duncan Hunter was indicted on charges that he and his wife used hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to pay for vacations, video games and other personal expenses and filed false campaign finance reports, federal officials said.
End AOL excerpt

There once was a time in the US when actions such as the defense of potential felons from a sitting US President was unheard of.   

Oh, times they are a changing.

Trump Speaks To Reporters: We Didn't Expect Much...We Got Less

Trump started his public day with an obviously planned set of brief appearances to address the last few days of Trumpocracy. From Rudy Giuliani through the Special Counsel investigation he peppered reporters with incoherent, inaccurate and phony utterances. 

Once very bold shot of Trump lying was his cover for Giuliani.  He actually insulted the intelligence of a majority of Americans by stating his loose canon attorney had just started in the White House the day before his remarks to Fox News's Trump frontman: Hannity. Giuliani just started yesterday? How about two weeks ago.
"Happy to meet with Mueller, would love to....."?  Well, his lawyers know he cannot tell the truth, thus he will lie. Doesn't he realize the reality of why his lawyers tell him no to a sit down with Mueller?
"Go look at what I said....." OK, we live in an age of video capture. Let's go look. It should be noted the very same reporter who posed the question Air Force One, asked today's question.
Another blurp of Trumpism came as he responded to a question about sitting for an investigation interview with Special Counsel Mueller.
Trump's comments continued as he approached Air Force One to fly over to Texas for a visit with a major campaign contributor: The NRA.  

It is becoming increasingly difficult to sit for cable news shows due to 24/7 minute to minute coverage of Trump's traveling reality TV show.  The throughout-the-day segments wouldn't be as hard to stomach if the nation's 45th President wasn't such a pathological liar.  He has peppered us with so many lies, I am unabashed in stating I now view the man the same as the fabled Chicken Little.  For me, his aura and tendencies to lie surpassed Pinocchio as he approached his electoral win in the fall of 2016. Thr lying hs grown to the level of an expectation. and therein lies the danger.

Trump's tendency to lie as a first thought can only be described as a pathological condition. Trump's pathological lying is the very reason his lawyers are abhorrent regarding his speaking with special Counsel Mueller. Of course, Trump may be lying about his wish to sit with Mueller.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: When A President Should Shut Up

A few days ago we published this piece: 

The piece has a genesis in personal observation of the very visible portrait of former US President Andrew Jackson hanging visibly near Trump's desk.

It seems the nation's 45th President continues to sit for interviews without realizing his signaling his deep-rooted bigotry and racism, is harmful to the nation. He may tickle the innards of the nation's overt and closeted white nationalist, but he also signals a regressive personality to non supporters and people across the globe. Trump's early morning interview led to comment about Andrew Jackson. (Newser) (Mediaite Sirus audio).

President Trump: "Why was there the Civil War? Why could that one not have been worked out?"
— CNN (@CNN) May 1, 2017

Here's Trump's full answer on "swashbuckler" Andrew Jackson and the Civil War: "Why could that one not have been worked out?"

Long story short, Andrew Jackson was a murderous slave owner and perpetrator of genocide against Native Original People North Americans.  

While the Internet is full of varied scribes and articles about the causes of the US Civil War, we offer a very abbreviated piece which seems to capture the essence of what we learned about the war. 

Wonder if Trump (and Bannon) are not aware Jackson died 16 years before the Civil War? Rest assured Bannon knows Jackson was a slave owner. Of course, there wouldn't have been a Civil War if Jackson was the US President.

Donald Trump is a dangerous person.

100 Days Of An American Occupation

Image result for 100 days

When hypocrisy is so embarrassing it oozes into shameful. 

When lying is revealed as not just an inclination to cover something the person wishes to hide, the viewer has to surmise it is a "first thought" obsession which is more appropriately called an indication of pathology. Simply stated: a pathological liar. The Independent UK recently published a piece regarding comments from psychiatric experts and Trump's pathology. Nonetheless, his supporters do not seem to have interest. 

When supporters chose to overlook Trump's abnormal behavior and continue to support Trump at the 96% level, it doesn't say much about large swaths of the American public. 

Also in his first 100 days, Trump committed yet another egregious personal exhibition. Let's first take a peep at a campaign fumble from the man who really does seem to have entered early stages of mental diminution.

"7/11" VS "9/11"?  

Speaking of 9/11, what sort of human being would take their personal narcissism to a low level of comparing a TV appearance to the tragedy laid upon the nation in 2001? During an interview with the AP Trump reached to that very lowest of levels. Doesn't Trump also realize millions who despise him may also have watched viewed the appearance?

Trump mentioned an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer which garnered according to Trump, 9.2 million viewers.
It had 9.2 million people. It’s the highest they’ve ever had. On any, on air, [CBS’s John] Dickerson had 5.2 million people.
“It’s the highest for ‘Face the Nation’ or as I call it, ‘Deface the Nation’. It’s the highest for ‘Deface the Nation’ since the World Trade Center. Since the World Trade Center came down. It’s a tremendous advantage. embarrassing it oozes into shameful. 

How did we get here? We traveled a path of political operatives, accommodating (and facilitating) media, a bit of Russian tampering, and FBI Director who obviously had a stake in the outcome and gullible "social voters."

And then there were the "social voters." and a flawed electoral (college) system which doesn't allow for any consideration of the popular vote.

"Bomb The S_ _T Out Of Em", Secrecy And More Lies

The language in the following video is unfit for the ears of young Americans. The nation's 45th President as a candidate did not hesitate to spew vulgar rhetoric about his intent to bomb indiscriminately (and even "kill their families").

After Trump authorized the recent Tomahawk (cruise missile) attack ( or fireworks show) against a Syrian airport, We predicted a key dynamic. Our thought was if Trump received approval ratings rise from the attack, he would become a wild firing maniac.

In 1998 Bill Clinton experience a slight jump in approval polling after the missile strike on Iraq. December 1998. A Google search regarding Trump's approval ratings after the Syrian missile attack yields as partisan results as any matters in the US Congress and across the greater society. As we perused the survey result fields a CBS Poll stands out as an indicator of Trump's boost in ratings after the "fireworks" Tomahawk attack.

As reported by The New York Daily News:

1,006 adults across the country
Fifty-seven percent of respondents approved of Thursday’s air strike, according to a CBS News poll released Monday. Along party lines, 84% of Republicans and 40% of Democrats supported the move.
MSNBC offers a stark graphic:

Full support from conservative America and probably too much attention from non-conservatives. Are we as a nation egging on a president who could have failed to fully cognitively and experientially develop to a level required for service as US president?

When the erratic, attention loving and the immature person receives a positive response, what does the person generally react? They repeat the behavior and await the next round of praise. We are seeing just that dynamic regarding Trump's lobbing bombs across the globe. Of course, you noticed the vast difference in support for armed actions via the nation's conservative poll respondents. Sadly we previously followed conservative dogma into a nation killing abyss in recent US History.

While many in the nation are lauding Trump's meandering jingoism overseas while ignoring his complete and utter failures domestically, Trump shows us the extent of his immaturity.

Earlier in the week, Mother Jones published a piece inclusive of what follows.  As you read through the excerpt, think about a time when you could imagine an American President speaking as such.  In a segment of the interview, Trump spoke about communicating his decision to launch the Syrian missile attack.
"I was sitting at the table, we had finished dinner," Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo. "We're now having dessert—and we had the most beautiful piece of chocolate cake that you've ever seen—and President Xi was enjoying it." 
Bartiromo then said it was "brilliant" that the missiles were "unmanned."
"It's so incredible. It's brilliant," Trump agreed.
Then Trump appeared to momentarily forget which country the United States had attacked last week, naming Iraq instead of Syria. 
"So what happens is I said, 'We've just launched 59 missiles heading to Iraq, and I wanted you to know this,'" Trump said in the interview. "And he was eating his cake. And he was silent." 
"Syria?" Bartiromo corrected. 
"Yes, heading toward Syria," Trump said. He followed up by mentioning Xi finished his dessert.
Where did Trump head from that point? Where did he go as his cabal comes under increasing scrutiny for interaction with savory Russian operatives (in the past)? He moved to another exhibit of fireworks for effect. His "authorized" military decided the perfect time to drop the largest single ordinance (shy of a nuclear device) in the history of humankind. 
Of course, that leads to a public statement of the possibility of a pre-emptive strike against North Korea. The timing is almost bully-like.
The end of this piece would have been natural at this point, However, we cannot resist embedding a couple of short additions from CNN regarding Trump's increasing erratic behavior. Trump and company's decision to return to a more secretive White House visitor list is profoundly amazing.  That is unless we consider how Trump utilizes his weekend visits to Mar-A-Lago. The Koch brothers apparently visited with Trump last weekend. Lest we forget by authorizing the Keystone XL Pipeline construction benefited the Kochs in the range of $80 to $100 billion.  

First a few minutes on vacation hypocrisy.

In an earlier segment, CNN host Erin Burnett related to the clamp-down on publishing the White House visitor list. Watch as noted Trump presstitute literally made a fool of himself spewing Trumpism related to security issues as a reason for the policy change.

We wouldn't serve properly if we did not remind of the following:
