As Trump's World Turns: "...Thousands Of Greeters"




Do you recall this from 2017? Trump Inauguration Crowd Vs Obama's Image result for Trump Lies About Crowd Size, London Edition

 Of course, you recall this...



Trump's second day in Britain along with his grown siblings and wife found the strange eating president deflecting about protests.  As is often the case with Trump his deflection included an over the top manipulative stretch about not seeing any protesters. Trump's remarks also included a claim of not seeing protesters he stated knowledge of supportive revelers. 

Yesterday, we published a piece about Day 2; linked here.

How about a take on Trump's carnival barking from a very credible international reporter?

As Trump's World Turns: Britain, Protesters Or Lack Of Protesters





Before reading beyond the title above, know the claim of "no protesters" is a lie.

No, this post isn't about attire. However.....

It is about phantom protesters. somehow media is full on reports of protesters against Trump and his cabal as they visit England. But for some reason, Trump is stating he hasn't seen any protesters. Have we witnessed yet another addition to Trump's growing number of lies thus reachiing10,500 lies during his three years in office?

London part of trip is going really well. The Queen and the entire Royal family have been fantastic. The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. Tremendous crowds of wellwishers and people that love our Country. Haven’t seen any protests yet, but I’m sure the....
Seriously? Unseen protests may have much to do with helicopter flights to the Palace and strategic avoidance of the streets of London. Imagine anyone gullible enough to believe the twist of the tweet. Of course,e he has seen any protesters.

Video is a powerful communications tools.



How could he miss the following picture as his motorcade is very visible in the background?



Well if this is his reference, I don't see any protesters either.  But notice what else is absent fort he image. If you are slow today, notice the number of revelers or well-wishers

The New York Post also ran a piece regarding Trump's reception via the citizens of England. Linked here.

The BBC


Time


Oh yes, there were protesters and despite The Trump cabal and Fox News's efforts to offer up supportive crowds, the number of Englanders unhappy about the state of the current US President was quite noticeable.

Protest against U.S. President Donald Trump in London

Trafalgar Square, London, Britain, June 4, 2019.

Is there a question of respect for a president who shows no respect. 
As was in the linked piece via the New York Post, some spoken openly about their contempt for the US President.

Excerpt
“A state visit is an honor, and we don’t think that this president deserves an honor,” UK Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry said on BBC’s “Today” radio show Tuesday. “He is a sexual predator, he is a racist, and it’s right to say that. And I think we need to think about when is it that our country got so scared. Why can’t we start saying things as they are?” 
She added, “We’ve seen the way in which this current British government have tried to deal with Donald Trump, by fawning all over him, holding his hand, and what respect have we got as a result of it?
Well, I believe that somewhat sums it up.  

Question: Do you recall similar protest as any other US president visited  Britain?

As Trump's World Turns: White House Lawn "Like Party", Ingraham Wall of Fame, and Red States Fact (Abortion)





It seems Trump morning included comment which couldn't even come from the mental concoction of a pre-teen. 

CNN (15 seconds)
Listen carefully and give the related CNN segment a one-minute viewing; linked here. How can any American follow the illogical lies of the nation's 4th President?  

Didn't Trump recently blast Nancy Pelosi for his exception of her on-air affect; including use of her hands?  
If you care to spend a few minutes reading about facts related to Trump's early morning lie attack, Media Matters offer the best summary, as yet. Media Matters for America, linked. Oh, let's not stop. Herewith is a quick fact check via CNN, linked.

Yes, the post-inauguration lies from Trump have to now stand well over 10,500 (verified). With record lying numbers as such one could begin to believe Trump even lies in his sleep. 

From Trump's lies to a reminder of the total commitment for Fox News to a social ideology some call whit nationalism. The phrase is a whitewash of the reality of white supremacy.  Laura Ingraham recently posted a set of images of Right-wing nutjobs she labeled "prominent citizens".  You will notice both Alex Jones, James Woods, and Candace Bergen the list.  Of significant interest and very noteworthy, Ingraham also posted one of the nation's most recognizable white supremacists on her screen feed to Fox News minions.  



That salute came at the end of a 17:26 minute RNC Convention speech I which Ingraham opened by equating, or making a weird analogy of,  Trump actions to that of a "god." 

Here is Ingraham'swall of fame via Media Matters. 

Did you read or hear about Trump's inner cabal ordering a US Navy warship named John McCain (named after the former Senators' father and grandfather...both Navy Vets to cover the name of the ship to avoid viewing by Trump? 


Let's close our run through Trumpism and US conservatism with a Twitter post of Democrat Party strategist Keith Boykin. A reminder of US conservatism and the politics which attract one-third of the US electorate. 

There is truly something horrible brewing in conservative America.

As Trump's World Turns: Barr Vs Mueller





If you are an average reader or one who follows international current events, you know a bit about the existential reality of dictators or the ultimate authoritarian leader. I am speaking of world despots and decisions like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Haiti's François "Papa Doc" Duvalier, Jong Un (and his predecessor family), Putin (although somewhat disguised via a faulty political system), and you may also see tendencies in Trump. If you fail to watch and consider the various political maneuvers and occasional verbiage from Trump, you won't find what follows very appealing.

Question:  What would be the prototypical legal system and backdrop support for any an all dictators? Rhetorical question, correct?  There would be no actual viable legal system or the system would sit as a mere Cart Blanche wing of the leader. Do you believe Jong Un has a legal system which strives for equal justice for all North Koreans  How about Putin's Russia? Any student of history knows how Hitler's Cart Blanche system worked as a facilitator of his politics and genocide. I don't even recall if the murderous Pol Pot was propped up by a legal system. You have to now know where I am leading you.

Trump's Justice Department is showing signs of rivaling like regimes across the span of recent international history. Of specific concern is his current hand-picked (after job application memo) Attorney General Barr.  A few months ago you probably saw Barr walkout to a microphone and proclaim the Special Counsel Report as a document which exonerated Trump of any election wrongdoing.  You knew as did we all that Barr was lying. Within days Mueller wrote and sent a memo to Barr with a caution about the manner in which he, Barr, misrepresented the Report findings and verbiage.   

With Mueller's scheduled presser today, any suspicion of Barr as a legal system stooge and operative has been borne out and highlighted.  Since you may have missed Mueller's nine minutes on camera, you may find it worthwhile to seek the text of his comments.  We want you to view a CNN video segment of how Barr's previous statements about the report compared against Mueller's comments today.

As Trump's World Turns: Doctored Video As A Right-wing Weapon




The Washington Post and other non-Fox News media are reporting on a clear case of right-wing anti-Nancy Pelosi Internet video subterfuge. Following a trump attack on Pelosi earlier in the week, someone or a team of criminals took it upon themselves to doctored (or edited) a video of the Democrat Party Speaker of the House of Representatives. The dirty trick is a short video of Pelosi appearing senile, and, or drunken.  

The Washington Post, linked here.



Former Federal attorney and former mayor of New York City, and now Trump stooge, Rudy Giuliani joined in on promulgating the edited video.  His re-tweet included the following words.  First, keep in mind, Giuliani has to know the video is fake, but how can one serve as the perfect stooge million if one allows the truth to dilute his subservience to Trump. 

Giuliani words tweet: "What is wrong with Nancy Pelosi? Her speech pattern is bizarre."

Talking Points Memo's reports on the edited video are noteworthy.  


As we consider the success of the edited video and the boosting from Fox News Business and Giuliani, it is important to note the following video did not receive like scrutiny from the Right. What follows is an obvious "mess".


The video as a weapon?  In January of this year, CNN's Jake Tapper broadcast a segment regarding the Congressional testimony of National Security Director Coates.  While the first 1:12 seconds of the video relates to international adversaries, the following portions of the video have proven to be point-on. 

Doctored 'deep fake' videos posing threat to elections, security


Remember Republicans don't win elections via straight campaigning, dirty tricks and election subterfuge (including voter suppression) are key weapons of the party on the right.  And how does the high information voter avoid becoming a victim of the GOP's election black hole?  

If you think this is a strategy and political weaponry misreported via CNN, think again. Fox News's Laura Ingraham also went video attack during a broadcast within the past 24 hours.  Watch the video Ingrahan weaponry, here (Media Matters). 

Don't accept the Right as an entity which has an inner core of honesty and fair administration of matters of politics.  

Live suspiciously and seek information.

As Trump's World Turns: A Right-Wing King Performed




Image may contain: 1 person

Please excuse the following quick digression.

          Image may contain: 1 person, text

As you view the following image, do you experience thoughts of a degree of planning of a pending event? Carefully consider your thought response as to indicate you don't see planning could be an indication of either something missing in your gray matter or a simple state of conservative obtuse.

No photo description available.

What follows offers the perfect opportunity across the full breadth of Trumpism to view how many across the globe must have begrudgingly viewed many failed dictators and despots. While it is sad the 46.9 percent of eligible voters in 2016 didn't cast a vote for President of the United States, it is utterly tragic the caricature of our US despot.

If you want the back story on the three images posted above (specifically the third image), read on. 

Under the guise of an infrastructure meeting, Trump and his cabal drew members of Congress and the opposition party Democrats to the White House for an obviously staged carnival spectacle, of course, you shouldn't be surprised as you may have helped elect the nation's first carnival president.  While delivering many more than 10,000 verifiable lies since taking office, Trump and his communications network, Fox News, delivers frequent examples of staged reality show-like events.  
A wrtier for Occupy Democarts summed up the Trump drama as such. he following ha sbeen reproted here for the "We're IN! 100% ALL IN!" Facebook page.
"So in review, Trump, Pelosi and Schumer agreed to meet today to discuss INFRASTRUCTURE. But Trump said he heard from someone that “Nancy” just minutes before the meeting, said Trump was involved in a cover-up..Trump then said sorry, no dice. I can’t discuss infrastructure with anybody who would say such a mean, nasty lie about me, so he *spontaneously* walked out to the Rose Garden to address the public, where someone had *spontaneously* attached this placard to the podium, which miraculously, and also no doubt *spontaneously* mirrored Trumps very inaccurate term “18 Angry Democrats.”
.This man is certifiably batshit, my friends. I’m beginning to think impeachment is too good for him. They choreographed this WHOLE goddamn thing, long before he heard what Speaker Pelosi said, and probably even before the infrastructure meeting was agreed to."
~ Bruce Lindner

Speaking of guises, this post wouldn't be complete with visiting another of conservative America's daily lies and misrepresentations regarding their messiah. Apparently, someone on a mission took an aerial view of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival in upstate New York and passed it off as an image of a recent Trump rally crowd. 

Well, Snopes responded to the image and its false representation as such: linked

We've lived through the crowd thing before.  Within days of Trump's inauguration, Sean Spicer was dispatched to the White House Briefing room to perform as such.



From Snopes and Trump crowd issues to an admitted White House liar. 


Huckabee Sanders "...Pelosi has lost control of her party". 
Sanders Part Deux.  It is, important to consider this before moving forward.


From late April to Sanders today on the White House Lawn. After yesterday's Trump tantrum, the White House dispatched its Number two presstitute to answer questions from yelling White House reporters.  Sanders addressed what seemed an obviously planned meeting walkout via Trump

Oh....... and that makes it the truth. Lest we remind of over 10,000 validates lies I threw years in office. Lear we forget this mouthpiece has admitted to the Special Counsel is position requirements.

Lest we forget Trump has pulled a walkout before after offering candy to start a meeting. And, never forget the expensive and seemingly planned Pence walkout from an Indianapolis professional football game National Anthem protest. Someone in the Trump cabal believes walkouts are the thing to do to entertain Trump's base.

As Trump's World Turns: Game of Marbles and Trump's GOP



Before We Do Trump's Marbles Image result for Trump  marbles 

US Representative Katie Porter and a very condensed and shameful segment with Trump's Ben Carson. Carson was appointed to head the Department of Housing and Urban development via a president two doesn't give one damn about the plight of Americans who earn less than a million dollars per year. A president who has validated he has absolutely no interest in the plight of the nation's poor. If the aforementioned poor is a person of color... well you can complete that thought. 

The twitter post follows.
Let's drill down on that again.
If you believe that was a bit revealing and uncomfortable give this segment a few minutes of your time. Time is valuable, but the current state of life int he US requires expending time and effort to understand the level to which 70 percent of the US electorate has delivered the nation to Trumpism.

US Representative Alma  Adams, D-NC, questioned Trump's obviously inept and misplaced Head of Housing and Urban Development, Ben Carson. 

As is the case with all things Trump, how do you suspect Carson handled his utter inept stumble offer a common housing industry acronym, REO?  He resorts to theatrics akin to that of a trump carnival clown. Courtesy The Business Insider.

From Carson to a quick visit with  Republican who stated the prospect of the rape of a woman as in some cases consensual.

May 17, 2019 | 1:44 PM EDT



Apparently, the Republican returned to this statements and offered the ever-present perfunctory apology.


From "consensual rape to the leader of the GOP, and the leader of conservative America (as well as the 46.9% of potential US voters who didn't vote in 2016), and the nation's irrefutable worse president in the nation's history.

Earlier today, Nancy Pelosi responded to questions about Trump's potential involvement in a coverup.  Her response was "yes." It appears as such.  Within the hour Trump is reported to have left an infrastructure meeting with Pelosi and others. He seems to have run out the Rose Garden for a game of marbles. Yes, take ones marbles and run hone when the game just isn't as one wishes.

Take a few minutes to watch and listen to a guilty person throwout invalidated garbage regarding his presidency.



Last week we held on the follows Trump carnival acts.  Life is simply too short to work at tracking and reporting on Trump's idiocy and his rapidly growing reality of the Trump Lie
Everyone should go back and view a few segments of The Apprentice and Celebrity Apprentice, and after viewing ask yourself a question.  Is it truly possible Trump as a celebrity would warm to the hearts and psyches of so many very gullible Americans? Obviously, the question is a look back with an overdose of rhetorical. 

A Game of Marbles.
