As Trump's World Turns: The Ugliness Of Hate And The Pathetic State of Trump

Imagine That...

The Ugliness of Hate

The following Media Matters news segment appeared on CNN.  

CNN"S ALISYN CAMEROTA conducted a rather long segment with a young white man who seems to have awakened to the ills of white supremacy as ti manifest in American. He spoke of being radicalized via YouTube; the res is as follows (including the brief segment excerpt).
ALISYN CAMEROTA (CO-HOST): How does a liberal young man become a follower of the "alt-right"? You're about a meet a man who says he was radicalized by "alt-right" figures via their persuasive YouTube videos. He believed their extremist conspiracies for years. But then he somehow deradicalized himself, and he's now working to help others get out. Joining us now is Caleb Cain. Caleb, thank you so much for being here to tell your personal story. I think it is so fascinating. So just to bring people up to speed, somewhere around, as I understand it, 2015, you were sort of at loose ends. You had dropped out of college, you were looking for direction. I think -- correct me if I'm wrong -- at the time you would describe yourself as liberal. And somehow online you found your way to these "alt-right" videos and websites. And then describe what happened. 
CALEB CAIN: Yes, ....... (The video follows)

The Pathetic State of Trump

Time to move to our ever-present lying White House occupant. If you follow any current events you know the nation elected a pathological liar. Therefore, we expect daily lies for Trump and each of his inner cabal.  The extent of lying from the White House is so pervasive, GOP members of Congress and false Democrats who site in the US Congress are finding themselves revealing the level to which they will also lie to the American people. As we move through the 360-degree essential reality of Trump and his congressional stooges and staff, there is another critical group which wears the same label of shame. US conservatives who facilitate Trumpism via overt and obvious willingness to accept any and every lie as well as tacit conservatives who are willing to ignore historic poor leadership form the GOP and record lying form Trump and company. 

The latest and most disturbing example of a Trump lie was offered to the world yesterday. While speaking about reports Kim Jong Un's brother was a CIA asset, Trump clear stated the prospect of such an operation would not be part of the manner in which he conducts business. Wouldn't you know, today he seeks to modify his comments with one of the zaniest yet validating statements he has uttered since taking office  His words clearly show he speaks with a brain which has a core in lying.

Watch and listen...

Did the headline in the Crooks & Liars piece read with the word "Bizarrely"?  Well, Trump topped that late yesterday.
Imagine that... literally inviting foreign involvement and meddling in US general elections.  

After such a statement any rational person should question Trump's recent adjective-laden criticism of Joe Biden.  A US president stooped to calling a potential election opponent, "dumb", "less mental", "not so good looking", and in some cases "sleepy". If Trump's remarks to ABC's Stephanopoulos doesn't show his criticism of Bide as something of a mirror reflection of the nation's 45thh, this linked CNN segment with Rick Santorum may remind of you

Speaking of CNN, conjure up and consider thoughts of an international news (and entertainment) network which pays conservatives to come on air to defend the wild manifestations and insanity of Trump. It is the existential reality of my use the word "presstitute." Santorum is a classic presstitute. 

And how did Trump's favorite news show handle his bumbling revelation?  Media Matters offers how Fox offers the ugly to its viewers. 

Another example of the most non-presidential person to sit in the White House was recently published via Snopes. "...cleanest air in the world."

This is an update to a post from earlier today:  Herewith is yet another example of the intellect form the Oval Office. Yes, he typed "whales" Instead of "wales". There is something about it that leads me to the prospect it wasn't a typographical error. Crooks And Liars.

The Pathetic, The Callous, And The Lie (Trump And Your GOP)

A Trump and GOP Smorgasbord

The World Economic Forum
Image result for gender pay gap 2018
Why does the US sit in the middle of what can be described only as pay discrimination agist women employees? Why are European countries and New Zealand towards the bottom of the disparity scale? Rhetorical questions?

Let's bring the gender pay discrimination to the US alone with the white male employees as a gauge.

Image result for us gender pay gap 2018

Data doesn't lie. When we accept the reality of gender pay disparity, contemplate your GOP via the following social media embed.


You may live as a conservative and you have every right to support the party of your choice, but how do you explain the data to your wife, daughter niece grandmother et al? 

We cannot complete this post without a reminder of the utter pathetic nature of Trump and Trumpism. Watch and listens as Crooks & Liars capture Trump profanity.

Moving along... 

Can you imagine a The Progressive Influence smorgasbord without a visit to the Trump lie meter?  As Trump moves towards hitting the 9500 lie mark since taking office, Politifact ran a review of one of his first lies since the Barr/Mueller setup.

The Circus continues.

Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill

Pure Republicanism!

I often wonder why African-Americans support the GOP. Yes, I understand the need for some human beings to overstep all rational existence via reaching to differentiate themselves from another group they literally stand as utter fools. In the context of this past that Pother group: happens to be other African-Americans. As I move through the piece it is important to remind readers African-American who claim and affiliate with conservative Amercian refuse to refer to themselves in the commonly accepted vernacular of "African-American." You refer to them as "black" or do not refer to them with any skin color phraseology at all.  well, an ideal state which has not come to be in the US. 

A few examples are clear. Clarence Thomas and his confessed hatred of his "blackness' and year after year of disassociation from the black community while so diligently working to associate with the GOP he often makes himself appear pathetic. Another well-known example...

"I am an American. Black. Conservative," he said, punctuating each aspect of his self-identity. "I don't use African-American, because I'm American, I'm black and I'm conservative. I don't like people trying to label me. African- American is socially acceptable for some people, but I am not some people."
While the vast majority of "black" conservatives work to disassociate from African-American it should be noted they to the person claiming the GOP. The next and logical question is why doesn't the GOP work to at as a minimum to offer some degree of support for slam-dunk humane issues?  Before the following segment allow me a moment to answer the question.

First, the part, movement, and conservative America don't give one damn about Americans who are not white. The statement may appear harsh, but the reality is irrefutable. Another consideration is the basic paradigm of the Conservative mind: Ayn Randism and the reality of their "It doesn't affect me" psyche.  On a tertiary basis and probably the most influencing of them all, GOP politician will not go against the underlying core values of their constituents.  If the politician signs on with legislation or measures which only addresses the African-American community, the politician risks the wrath of all things conservative among their constituents. Basically, and in much more simple terms. Give the constituents what they want and avoid that which would raise their eyebrows. 

The need for an anti-lynching bill is a bit perplexing, but still a measure only one GOP Senator supported. The one supporters: Southern Carolina's Tim Scott.

Crooks & Liars

Sen. Tim Scott Is The Only Republican To Sign On To The Anti-Lynching Bill: Sen. Tim Scott could not explain why no other Republican in the Senate is supporting his anti-lynching legislation.

Trump's Presstitutes Circle The Wagons Around Trump And Porter

Image result for porter wife black eye 

Donald Trump's utter disregard for the beaten former wives (and girlfriend) of his former White House Secretary, Rob Porter, is spreading across the GOP like a runaway tax cut. We should have anticipated the strategy from Trump's presstitutes and surrogates following his own concern-free remarks in defense of Porter.
Trump's remarks: 
Well, we wish him well. He worked very hard. I found out about it recently, and I was surprised by it. But we certainly wish him well. 
bviously, tough time for him. He did a very good job when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career, and hopefully he will have a great career ahead of him. But it was very sad when we heard about it. And, certainly, he’s also very sad. 
Now he also — as you probably know, he says he’s innocent, and I think you have to remember that. He said very strongly yesterday that he's innocent. So you’ll have to talk to him about that. But we absolutely wish him well. Did a very good job while he was at the White House. 
Thank you very much everybody. Thank you.
Trump didn't speak one word about the women who reported Porter's past abuse.l not even the women with the now internationally viewed black eye.

Image result for porter wife black eye

It is time to explore a few surrogate and presstitute defense of "he/him" Porter. Watch as Ben Stein struggles with the illogical strategy to indirectly invalidate the reality of Porter laying a black eye on one of his wives. The video is eight minutes long, I encourage clicking-off the video after the first 2:38 minutes. Two minutes of embarrassing equivocation is not easy to watch.

Of course, Trump dispatched his seasoned presstitute to the airways for Sunday morning Trump rationalizing and implied defense of the wife beater Porter.


All said there were none who compared to the idiotic manifestation of a noted GOP /ENC talking head: Alex (I have a real tan better than Trump's makeup) Castellanos.  

Before the piece embed of the Crooks & Liars article with Castellanos, how about watching a few minutes of pure Fox News demagoguery which totally supports the perception of Fox News as Right Wing state TV. What follows is shameful.

Sh*thole V: Rand Paul Pleads For Trump

Trump goes full racist; and after a few days of strategy it seems the talking points are either:

"He didnt say such" or "Let's just not refer to him as a racist."

While republicans Cotton and Perdue have taken up the (in the meeting) we did nit hear it lie, others in the GOP have embarked on Trump's racism from another perspective:  "Let's just not refer to him as a racist."

One noted ("Let's not call Trump a racist") talking head is Kentucky's Rand Paul. Would you expect different from Rand Paul. Paul is a noted Libertarian. I have never seen nor heard from a Left leaning Libertarian. Paul fits the private Business can deny services for any reason. Basically, if a private business owner wanted to maintain a whites only swimming pool, We assume Paul is fine with that. We can also assume Paul would be find with said business owner also flat out denying services to LGBTQ potential customers. His inner core values also lend to the prospect such business owners could discriminate against women. Once Paul's discrimination gates are open the business owners can universally discriminate.

Before the Rand Paul video, take a look at the tree from which he fell


In the newsletter, bylined by Ron Paul himself, black people were described as “terrorists,” "animals" and worse.

I think we can safely assume that 95% of the black males in [major U.S. cities] are semi-criminal or entirely criminal.
A few months later Paul's newsletter also passed along this advice on how to get away with shooting black teenagers:

“What can you do? More and more Americans are carrying a gun in the car. An ex-cop I know advises that if you have to use a gun on a youth, you should leave the scene immediately, disposing of the wiped off gun as soon as possible. Such a gun cannot, of course, be registered to you, but one bought privately (through the classifieds, for example.
If you want a more detailed and direct look at 1992 passages from the newsletter take a few minutes to run through the embed which follows. It is important to acknowledge Paul, as is frequently the case with conservative politicians, denies writing the verbiage. Nonetheless, Paul certainly served as editor of the passages.

Ron Paul Report Racial Terrorism June 1992

Rand Paul exhorting media to back-off on apropos labelling Trump as a racist is analogous to Trump stating the TMZ "grab em by the pussy" tapes are fake.

CNN's Dana Bash OfferedTrump Feed For Self Love

YOUR 45TH President 
Yesterday in response to a recently published book which questioned his competency and mental state, Trump hosted a meeting with congressional representatives. The 55-minute meeting was obviously staged to offer Trump an opportunity to appear as a viable US President; it failed overall with an exception for certain ratings hawking TV personalities who made the mistake of saying "Trump had revived his presidency. "   

Of particular note (and linked above), CNN's Dana Bash showed her level of gullibility and surface thinking via falling for the camera opportunity. Moreover, the substance of Trump's interaction with the members of Congress was shifty, seemingly insincere and laced with Trump's typical lack of understanding matters of state.

It seems Trump used one of his three-bedroom television sets to follow the CNN post meeting talk.  Let's assume her heard 

Immigration Meeting

.  Knowing what you and I know of Trump, can you find it possible he would take Bash's effusive comments and fantasize "letters from TV hosts?"  I am now guessing if you are the US President there exist a process r system t receive US mail overnight.

Laura Ingraham Feeds Fox Viewers Pure Ugliness

I am just going to leave this here until a few newsrooms deal with Fox News's Laura Ingraham's over the top bigotry and verbal racism.

Crooks & Liars

'What’s Your Urban Agenda? Handouts?'

While we realize the only thing necessary for convincing Fox News viewers of anything, Fox News show hosts simply have to say the words. Let's see if any fact checkers address Ingraham's racism. It is possible we will hear or read about black employment while Trump has been in office. Well, OK but I am not convinced Trump isn't still riding at the head of an economic boom lingering form the Obama Years. What actual economic policy or legislation has Trump and company passed which will support the possible claim of great employment for the black community under Trump.

Fox News should probably stick with guest such as the next example and avoid the non-Trump lovers in the Black Community.

Maybe, Ingraham should also research related to the growing demographics of "urban" environments and so-called handout recipients.

The GOP Tax Trojan Horse

Trump and Ryan's Tax Trojan Horse

Be very aware of this:

It is important to recall the citizens of Troy facilitated their downfall via pulling the Roman Trojan Horse through the gates of Troy. After seven years of war, they thought the Romans had given-up the fight and left them a gift.

Be Aware of Republicans Baring Gifts. 

The Trump tax plan is as circa an economic Trojan Horse any subterfuge perpetrated against the citizens of Troy. Besides, Trump has been assessed as lying over 80 percent of the time. why would you believe his claims of a middle-class tax relief plan?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump "The Shame"

Image result for trump shameless The shame!

How about a quick video laced reminder of exactly what the nation placed in the White House. While Trump is doing all he can to keep his Russia/Putin troubles out of the media, his desperation is only surpassed by the level of contempt he imparts to rational Americans.

Let's start with a quick exhibition of why he should seriously avoid issues which require any level of cognitive reliance on reality.  

ObamaCare for 17 years?  Really.

Seventeen years?

Now for the nascent White House communications chief who should more have the title of Chief Derriere Cleaner

Scaramucci shows extraordinary skills at derriere cleansing.

Football through a tire?

Trump continues his strong preference for entertaining crowds. Why not; he is the supreme carnival barker shelling out pure lies to get you to purchase a ticket to go in the carnival tent. Ever notice after you realize you have been ripped-off and the freak in the tent is laden with false props and makeup and isn't a real Snake woman, you run back outside to retrieve your money...and he is gone. Yes, the life of the carnival barker.

In Ohio and clear signs of a diseased mind selling snake oil.

While among the horde of supporters, Trump declared himself the most presidential of presidents in US History (other than Abe Lincoln).

The man has to be a psychiatrist and psychologist dream case.  

If a person has to go before a supportive audience and declares himself
best of all, it shows deep rooted inadequacy with a need for support for sycophants.

After a night of what might have included a few minutes of sleep, what does the erratic one do?  He jumps on his cell phone and tweets out an anti LGBTQ reversal of Barack Obama's "right to serve openly policy."   

How about the sudden LGBTQ shift. I suggest it is a smokescreen to distract from his current sets of Administration killing woes.

The man is as sad a carnival barker as we have witnessed over the course of our lives.

"Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists into our country and who suppress women, gays and anyone else who doesn't share their views or values," Trump said, criticizing Clinton's call for the U.S. to accept more Syrian refugees. 
"She can't have it both ways. She can't claim to be supportive of these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming in who want to oppress these same communities," he added. 
Clinton is widely supported by the LGBT community and supports policies that would expand civil rights protections. She expressed solidarity with the community during a speech Monday in Cleveland.
