As Trump's World Turns: "I'm Fucked", Presstitutes, And IPSOS Poll

The Mueller Report Tsunami

The Muller Report was released this week. Despite 30 minutes of Trump's facilitating stooge Attorney General and two very stoic mannequins offering a commercial for Trump' "No Collusion" mantra, one pool is showing a major drop in Trump's approval rating. The Ipsos Affairs website via its IPSOS / REUTERS POLL DATA  is reporting an approval rating at 37 percent among a group of survey respondents.

The survey is like below via a pdf doc. But, first lets spending a few minutes in the zany (and dangerous) world of Trumpism.

Trump's White House Counsel told Muller investigators Trump spoke as follows when informed by then Atty General Jeff Session Bob Muller had been appointed Speical Counsel.

Image may contain: one or more people, people standing and text

A quick lesson in life.

When faced with actual and accurate information regarding Trump's behavior after learning of the appointment of the Special Counsel and after becoming familiar with the Mueller Report, it is time to watch Trump sycophants go to work.

Sycophant Number One with a reach back via video to 1999. Or, should I refer to this one as 'hired hand" mouthpiece?

Rudy Giuliani on this morning's CNN State of The Union.
"There's nothing wrong with taking information from Russians. It depends on where it came from," Giuliani said. "You're assuming that the giving of information is a campaign contribution. Read the report carefully. The report says we can't conclude that because the law is pretty much against that. People get information from this person, that person."

Are we to believe that any Russian leader has an interest in doing the right thing towards the United States? In 2018, didn't Putin state that the US can't be trusted as a world leader with an implication Russia should fill the void?

When "the leader" is reported to have offered written response to Special Counsel questions with "I can't recall" or "I don't recall", one knows his lawyers furnished he answers. But when Fox New (or as I call it "FOXPEN "(Fox Propaganda and Entertainment Network) broadcast about the 36 responses, one should know something is brewing. 

Sycophant Number Two and chief White House adviser,  rehash that neo-mantra of: " If he says he didn't do it, he didn't do it." 

Before we move to the Ipsos Poll, a quick visit with John Heilemann. Only a few say it better.
Now for that poll. While the pool respondent pool includes nine more Democrats than Republicans, the nine respondents Left-leaning doesn't constitute a law or skewed respondent pool.

I doubt Trump nor his presstitutes will speak about polls this week.

What we have here is a US Presidency which is fizzling down to a Cub Scout troupe at our expense.

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: Attorney General Barr

Isn't a facilitating Justice Department common to all dictators and despots?

If you have just arrived back on Earth from the International Space Station or recently re-emerged from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean via a deep sea explore you may not be aware of a matter related to Trump's facilitating Attorney General. Yes, Barr solicited the appointment via a 14-page memo regarding his thoughts on Constitutional rights of the "executive." And, Trump is being rewarded with Justice Department rulings and interpretations which seem written on his own iPhone.

On the eve of the much-anticipated release of the "Mueller Report" and the prospect the document will be redacted to the point few words with lots of blacked out text, CNN just ran an intriguing segment regarding Barr.

Let's assume you didn't just arrive from deep Space nor emerged from 10,000 fathoms below the surface of the sea. Let's assume you know Barr quotes regarding Trump and the Mueller Report. If that is the case the following CNN segment is very much a critical watch.


By the way, we cannot get over what follows.  after watching the Fox News Bernie Sanders interview 45 took to twitter like a child and did this:

“So weird to watch Crazy Bernie on @FoxNews,” the president tweeted in the morning. “Not surprisingly, @BretBaier and the ‘audience’ was so smiley and nice. Very strange, and now we have @donnabrazile?”

Did you notice the "we"? "We" regarding supposed or alleged news network as if the network was the defense (or offense) on a football team.

"We"....... how juvenile and shallow?

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: "Wiki Leaks" (Video Quick Hits)

As Trump's World Turns: Fox News Messaging

Image result for Fox News toilet heads

Watch Fox News feed its minion viewers.   It doesn't matter what you are about to see and hear is pure propaganda based on a lie and misstated data. The producers of the Fox shows know once the information reaches the inner core of its viewer's brain, the data sticks like a too small MAGA cap.

Watch Lou Dobbs crowing like a morning rooster while spewing the Fox News lie and showing a graphic.

The Trump approval number isn't accurate. What follows is is a chart from the site. 

If you wish to see a full set of slides, this link will take you to the pdf poll results. 

The following Snopes link relates to the Fox News misstated report   I have posted it for another, and more detailed, look at the misstated data.

Fox News chart (graphic) manipulation is well known and thoroughly documented. Let's check a few examples.

Unemployment during the Obama Administration. What follows looks normal, eh?

Here is how the Bureau of Labor Statistics data should appear on a chart. 

Fox could have failed in developing the chart due to the employment of interns or a low-grade hands-on project via a set of high school day trip visitors to the network graphics department. Or the network could have suffered from a few moments of poor editing in the production room. Or, and quite probably the network graphics staff developed a chart to minimize the impact of Obama's dropping unemployment rate.

Here is another major effort to deceive on behalf of Mitt Romney's run for the US presidency. Romney claimed welfare recipients had increased during Obama's first term.

Notice the chart Y-Axis at 94M, instead of the much more widely accepted "0".

Media Matters posted a chart which shows a prepared and posted an accurate representation of how the bars should appear. 

Quite a bit of difference, eh?

Let's view more example. Have you ever seen a chart like the following chart?

Image result for Fox News lie charts Notice what appears as a substantial separation of enrollment and goal.

Now check out a couple of views of the same chart with proper y-axis to the left side of the chart.

And, that is how it works. No, Fox isn't guilty of using interns of inattentive high school day trippers. The network is about the business of propaganda, entertain, and message delivery for the GOP/Trump.

We will end this part of the piece with 53 seconds of Morning Joe.

Since I mentioned message delivery for and to conservative America consider the following segment from Trump's most-watched morning entertainment. What we have here is the full extent of Fox News's degeneration into a racist repository of manipulation and indecency.

As Trump's World Turns: Born In Germany and "Oranges"

There is something very badly wrong at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

No, Trump's father was not born in Germany.

MSN dot com


All media are reporting the facts. Trump's father was born in New York City. The Bronx.

How can any person with even a modicum of a brain overlook the extent to which Trump's first thought is to speak a lie?

Wait there is another round of communication which should pule those among us who are rational. 

The Oranges...

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.
