The Daily GOP Ignominious: KellyAnne Conway (Alternative Facts?)

Forty-four seconds in US History presented by the Trump Administration's number one presstitute, the former Ted Cruz presstitute, KellyAnne Conway. Alternative Facts Kelly.

Yes, you recall that 44 seconds of pure credibility killing drivel from the White House. I should qualify credibility killing for rational Americans who have avoided the severe psychological infestation of Trumpism.

Apparently earlier today, Conway appeared on CNN's New Day and jousted with a show host.  Conway was fully equipped and loaded with alternative facts.

Keith Boykin, Democrat Party consultant, and strategist, Twitter post.
Kellyanne Conway: “The president has tremendous moral standards.” 
Trump: “I did try and fuck her. She was married...I moved on her like a bitch...I just start kissing them... And when you’re a star, they let you do it...Grab ‘em by the pussy.”
It seems the occupants of the White House have moral values uncommon to denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Trump's War Against Real News (VIDEO)

When the popular vote means nothing in the General election, we finish the voting process with a White House littered with nation killing rubbish.

And that rubbish includes attacks against US media and US press; a dangerous and ugly reminder of times which span modern international history.

Cable news has a place in society.

It informs, it an enlightens and it an and does offer enough psyche draining coverage (on camera coverage) to serve as a psychic drain on us all.  The news providers certainly fall well shy of far-Right AM radio, the less flaming far-right FM radio and cable news falls well shy of comparison to the likes of YouTube demagogue Alex Jones's Info Wars. even the GOP's cable news giant (dwindling giant) Fox News offers scant pockets of non-far right broadcast generally staffed by actual TV journalist Vs information purveyors focused on right-wing propaganda (e.g, Hannity, Fox & Friends, Tucker Carlson). 

Despite the role of working to offer credible news, we all too often find ourselves viewing networks like CNN which offers so very much viewing segments. One such segment ran a couple of days ago on CNN. New Day host Chris Cuomo sat for an on-camera interview with Trump's number two"presstitute" standing with the White House as a backdrop. Kelly Anne Conway is well known by all informed Americans as the first spoke purveyor of the nascent phrase: "Alternative Facts."  Of course, we know the highly compensated talking head coined the phrase (or possibly delivered the coined phrase) to cover her bosses and the 45th US President's pathological lying. 

"Alternative facts" is a phrase used by U.S. Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway during a Meet the Press interview on January 22, 2017, in which she defended White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer's false statement about the attendance numbers of Donald Trump's inauguration as President of the United States. When pressed during the interview with Chuck Todd to explain why Spicer "utter[ed] a provable falsehood", Conway stated that Spicer was giving "alternative facts". Todd responded, "Look, alternative facts are not facts. They're falsehoods."[1]

Within days Trump's Conway appeared on NBC News and introduced the phrase to cover the inauguration day lies sent to the White House Press Room podium via the ill-fated and now unemployed Sean Spicer.
Yet, CNN continues to offer air-time to Conway despite full-knowledge she willing lies with each appearance on the news shows. Her job is to spew such lies and she executes her job with a degree of mastery unfounded in most White House spokespersons. Why should expose the nation to Trump's "lie specialists?"

Cuomo and other CNN host and producers should actually avoid booking Conway on their shows. CNN accomplished nothing via this interview. Conway Gish Gallloped the CNN Host; and did so effectively. She did so without making a point. She did so via running the segment out of satellite minutes. A common GOP talking head strategy

Conway is the perfect "presstitute" for a US President who's first cognitive response to response stimuli is to tell a lie.

A recent social media report also reports on one case of a Fox New show guest flat out stropping and correcting lies from an aforementioned network propagandist. Watch as Nevada's Attorney General corrects and redirects Carlson mission-driven right-wing apologist hosting.

Attorney General Laxalt probably induced major tsunami butt-puckers from Carlson and his production team.

Yet, I digress. Let's get back to the mind-shaping acts from the White House and its obviously misplaced chief resident. 

As Trump's nascent number; one presstitute, Sara Huckabee Sanders, went about spewing the latest version of daily lies from Trump and his communications team, one journalist challenged her bosses use of "fake news."

Trump and his communications team are the true purveyors of "fake news". Of course, Fox News is a willing and competence challenger for the "fake news' distinction.

We assert Trump not only repeatedly shows he doesn't have what it takes to serve as an effective US President, you should also recognize he has tendencies which rival the anti-press mindset of the common dictator regarding the free and open press and media.

Trump Goes Into Dictator Mode: Calls For Investigations Into 'Fake News' Media

Donald Trump has renewed his calls for Congress to investigate news outlets that he feels are not sympathetic to him. Dear Fox and Friends, this doesn't apply to you since you've become a state sponsored propaganda program for Trump. Why Isn't the Senate Intel Committee looking into the Fake News Networks in OUR country to see…

One Half Hour Of Pure Trump/Kelly Anne Conway Bull And Alternative Facts

While Trump Jr.'s political meandering and possible collusion soaks-in

Kelly Anne Conway has the most formidable job on Earth.  As a White House adviser and a top level talking head, she draws a check for daily journeys down a bridge too far. Anyone working to offer comments about the daily Keystone Cop behavior of the Trump cabal has to be comparable to serving as a weather center host in Antarctica with a hope of reporting on a 90-degree day.

Yesterday morning CNN assigned Chris Cuomo the task of providing a platform for Conway and her role of rationalizing Donald Trump Jr.'s possible collusion against the Clinton campaign. 

What follows is the full 30-minute interview. Of course, you have no need, and probably no interest, in viewing a 30-minute video of a person who can match Donald Trump's lying like no other. The video, however, is worth a skip through for snippets of responses which often seem disjointed, irrational and zany beyond belief.

30 minutes of Trumpism

Here is how Junior responded to the relations. He doesn't seem to understand the issue goes well beyond "Dems."  A Twitter statement, eh.

Media & Dems are extremely invested in the Russia story. If this nonsense meeting is all they have after a yr, I understand the desperation!
The lawyer involved in the meeting offers a different story about the meeting intent than the explanation issues by Junior.

Last night the New York Times reported Junior was told in a pre-meeting email that the Russian government wanted to share information to help with his father's campaign. The following segment is plus six minutes long, but a worthy quick view.

It seems Trump Jr. stepped on a political and possibly a legal landmine.

It is also impossible to believe Trump himself did not know of the meeting well prior to Junior accepting the meeting.

Trumponomics Demagogue Called Out: "You Are On The Take."

GRAYMATTER ALERT (News for Sane Americans and a Warning)

Stephen Moore

Image result for Stephen moore caught lying

When you see this man on your television monitor, know two things.

First, you are going to hear as focused a right wing perspective on all economic commentary, equal to the left wing social commentary you will hear and see if you watch MSNBC's evening news and commentary shows. 

Second, Moore is a rightwing economic hitman who has a wide history of hiring himself out to deliver demagoguery without caring of outcomes. Outcomes which will always come from his apparent devotion to Supply-side (Trickle-down) econ theory as well as his longing for affiliation with the Koch bros and their deep deep wallets.

We have recent history of Moore deliberately distorting facts well before the Trump Administration's newly coined "alternative facts."  It is amazing how conservatives so pollute language. Alternative facts is nothing more than what used to be called the "lie." 

Media Matters Conservative Media's Favorite Economist Caught Distorting Facts
Media Matter also reported last month on Moore stumble into what seems an admission regarding Trumponomcs.  

CNN's Stephen Moore Accidentally Confirms Trump Was Lying About

CNN today. The network hoased a panel with Moore as a call-in on camera guest.  Well, it seems one noted economist and  educator has grown frustrated with Moore's incessant hitman messages. Yes the CNN's employment of the rightwing economic demagogue is duly noted. While Moore no longer works for the Trump campaign, we feel it acceptable to anoint Moore with that honored Trump Administration title: "presstitute." 
Economist Jeff Sachs absolutely went off against President Donald Trump and the White House at large for the decision to withdraw from the Paris climate accord on CNN Friday. 
“It’s just unbelievable,” Sachs said. “Every word has been a lie for the last two days.”

The Daily GOP Ignominious: "Trumpism 101" Control The Media The Nation Will Follow

When you boss has been assessed to lie 91% of the time via POLITIFACT and other fact checkers, I suppose we shouldn't expect much difference.

From this presstitutes "alternative facts" through Trump's National Security Council guy, Flynn, lying to the FBI as well as the Trump Team strategy of a new addition to our lexicon: "Fake News." 

"Alternative facts." The phrase could only emanate from a group of people dead set on nefarious subterfuge while covering for the need to pose a false reality of the world in which they live, and a world they wish to promulgate for personal gain.  

The Urban Dictionary
Alternative facts
When truth is so unfavorable to a pathological liar, that they must invent a whole new category of lies to describe their nakedly intentional acts of deception. 
Kellyanne Conway told CNN that the President and his Press Secretary presented alternative facts about inauguration photographs that prove conclusively how few people attended the ceremony. 
by hewritesforODandcoinedthisterm January 22, 2017

"Fake News." An obvious strategy from Trump and his information ministers pushed down through is surrogacy cadre with the intent to label unfavorable news as false.  

”The leaks are real, but the news is fake.” Trump.

One news host over of the GOP's Fox News refuses to provide a clean path from Trumpism. watch and listen as Shepard Smith takes on the business of Trump as immune from the press and media.
Fox News anchor Shep Smith defends CNN reporter who asked about Russia— The Hill (@thehill) February 16, 2017
A CNN host and his network have decided to push back on Trump's presstitute cadre via not providing a platform for the baseless assertion (and attempt to mind control Americans). 

Trump and his administration staffers as well as surrogates, so disrespect the minds and intellect of rational Americans. Yet, we are seeing a degree of veracity with certain media regarding the "lie." Example CNN's John King, not a person I consider a fair and impartial commentator, addressed Trump's claim of inheriting a mess from the nation's 44th President.

Speaking of rational Americans: Why is the following of no surprise?

As Trump and his team work to control US Media (akin to any and all fascists regimes in modern history) some are resisting and million across the United States are not buying his propaganda and subterfuge.

Talking Points Memo

Just four weeks into his term, 56 percent of Americans disapprove of the job Donald Trump is doing as President, according to a Gallup's daily poll released Friday.

Racist or Bigoted?

Actually, the question is rhetorical, but you may choose the descriptor that makes you feel best.

Let's end with a peep at the creative output of a Trump supporter or a group of supporters.

Trump supporters would take an iconic Civil Rights artistic statement from the late and great Norman Rockwell, add blonde hair and offer the most low-class propaganda.

All his subject wanted was an opportunity education.

Alternative Facts: The Reality (Lies)

"Alternative Facts"

The Republicans are masters at shaping language to facilitate fear, loathing and for leveraging of their agenda. I should add they are masterful technicians at developing facilitating language for feeding their GOP minions. Lexicon expansion is one item we do not need from the GOP. If you need an example of my point, consider Kelly Anne Conway's recent work in support of Trump's Press Secretary's lie regarding the size of the audience on inauguration day events.

The Sunday after Inauguration Day, Conway sat with MSNBC's Chuck Todd. 
Chuck Todd, of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” asked Conway early Sunday morning why Mr. Trump had Spicer utter a “falsehood” the first time he formally faced reporters from the White House briefing room. 
“Why did he do that?” Todd questioned, referencing Spicer’s incorrect assertion that the audience at Friday’s inauguration was the largest to ever witness the ceremony both in person and around the globe. “It undermines the credibility of the entire White House press office on day one.” 
Conway dismissed the question. 
“Don’t be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck,” she replied. “You’re saying it’s a falsehood and they’re giving -- Sean Spicer, our press secretary, gave alternative facts to that.” 
“Alternative facts?” Todd shot back. “Look, alternative facts are not facts, they’re falsehoods.”

"Alternative Facts"

Friend of the TPI, Benjamin T. Moore offers a few perspectives of Conway's phraseology.
