As Trump's World Turns: "I am proud to shutdown the government!”"

Do you recall a historic case of recent Trump carnival barking? 

If the leader paced his credibility in a sieve, why are we now awash in daily accusations of Democrat party responsibility for Trump's federal government shutdown? Answer: we are the perpetual victims of Trump's carnival barking and absence of forethought lies.  Our Sunday morning dose of utterly ridiculous demagoguery was served-up by Trump's White House talking head Kelly Anne Conway.

CNN's Dana Bash took a turn in the Trump information carnival via offering up airtime to the White House's number one presstitute (word salad slinger if you prefer). Yes, Kelly Anne Conway is a hired talking head who will deliver any message for a price.

When asked about the Trump wall shutdown and its related death of two immigrant children CNN, Conway spewed out the salad. The segment is five-plus minutes long; you may wish to skip around a bit to avoid overexposure to Trump's Shutdown defense.

While sitting in the friendly and facilitating confines of a Fox News studio, Conway visited Nancy Pelosi's vacation to Hawaii.
"The Democrats have to come back," (from Hawaii) "Nancy Pelosi needs to come back from Hawaii -- less hula, more moola for the DHS Customs and Border Patrol, funding our border security. They need to come to the table and do their job. A fully-functioning democracy demands that both parties come together and that the Congress and the executive branch work together."

And, where was Conway as she criticized Pelosi's vacation? In Florida, pray tell

How ridiculous the level and scope of chaos inherent in Trumpism?  If for no other reason our world and humankind will be far improved if Trump and company were no longer in the White House along with a few more of his cohorts indictment.

"...less hula, more moola....."  Did Conway actually go there?  I have yet to hear use country music line dancing to support her demagoguery. 

Before closing let's have one last visit with Trump's puerility-like White House spokesperson. Why Puerility? Lying to the extent Trump works his communications department reminds of the child who repeatedly gets caught stealing from the neighborhood confectionary. Oh, I date myself with use of confectionary. Nowadays such neighborhood retail stores have been replaced with Walgreens stores.

Watch as Sarah Sanders offers a job-ending set of lies before her departure from Trump's White House. She comments regarding the death of children at the US Southern border; children who were in US border patrol custody.

The lie as US Policy and practice.

As Trump's World Turns: Conway Attempts Military Pay Increase Lie on CNN (Foiled Again)

Related image

Watch 1:06 minutes of Trump's White House Staffer, Conway, as she occupies The Sunday Morning News shows with oral Trumpism.  While the segment lasted many minutes longer, the excerpt which follows embodies how Trump employs talking head demagogues to spew scripts seeming written with little attention to facts. What does Conway offer the CNN audience? She spews alternative facts (lies) which included insertion of their common and ever-present lie about the only and largest military pay increase in US history.   

CNN host Jake Tapper quickly destroyed Conway's lie. Conway quickly accepted the actual reality of her lie and continued on her Gish Gallop effort to occupy the full scope of segment minutes.

The American Independent published the following transcript of the 30 seconds of on-air military pay increase lie. We have posted the transcript with permission.

Conway gets busted lying about military pay, then lies about it again
Tommy Christopher 09 Sep 2018
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway continued to lie about military pay raises Sunday morning, even after she was busted for it just minutes before by CNN’s Jake Tapper. 
On Sunday morning’s edition of CNN’s “State of the Union,” Conway kicked off a day of desperate damage control over this week’s revelations that senior Trump administration officials routinely disobey and ignore Trump’s orders in order to keep disaster at bay. 
In the middle of that effort, Conway tried to slip in an unrelated lie. 
“We have had the first pay raise for the military in years,” Conway fibbed to Tapper. 
“Well, not the first,” Tapper interrupted. 
Conway tried to talk over him, but Tapper finished his correction: “It’s a bigger pay raise, but they’ve been going on every year.” 
Indeed, as Tapper noted, military service members have gotten pay raises every year. 
But Tapper’s fact check didn’t stop Conway from repeating the same lie to another reporter. 
In a later interview with “Meet the Press” moderator Chuck Todd, Conway again claimed that Trump had passed “the first military pay raise in quite a while.” 
Todd didn’t catch her lie. 
Tapper’s fact check also didn’t convey just how badly Trump has insulted our troops when it comes to pay. 
Trump recently “joked” to troops at Fort Drum that they would give up their pay raises if they were “real patriots.” He also rewrote history by insisting that the 2.6 percent raise was the “biggest pay increase in a decade.” 
It’s true, as Tapper noted, that this year’s pay raise for troops was larger than in recent years. 
However, this year’s 2.6 percent increase still fell short of the 3.4 percent pay raise President Obama enacted in 2010 when he had the support of a Democratic Congress. 
It was only after Republicans took control of the House that military pay raises dipped below 3 percent, and even fell to a measly 1 percent in 2014 and 2015. 
It’s not surprising that Conway would lie for Trump. But it is especially galling that she would use a lie about military pay in order to defend a person who avoided military service himself during the Vietnam War, and who later described his ability to avoid contracting an STD as his own “personal Vietnam.” 
Trump has also failed to visit troops in a combat zone even once during his first year and a half in office, and has practically made a second career of attacking military families and veterans. 
After ignoring the sacrifice of American troops who were killed in Niger, Trump then started a feud with the grieving family of one of those troops. 
And Trump recently capped off years of attacks on former prisoner of war John McCain by refusing to honor McCain’s life after he died of cancer last month. 
Our troops deserve better than what Republicans and Trump have given them — and they definitely deserve better than to be blatantly lied about by one of Trump’s closest advisers.
Shouldn't a sane nation expect much more than day after day hour upon hour of dying from the Oval Office?

As Trump 's World Turns: Communications Can Hurt

Image may contain: 1 person, text

When we think in terms of speaking, do you agree with the thought a highly compensated talking head (presstitutes) should have the skill to appear on a News network segment and speak without fail about their boss? Well, the logical answer is: "Yes." The defensive answer is: "Maybe."  And, the irrational Trump supporter's answer is: "No."

The Trump supporter is correct, in the context of this post.

Watch seven seconds of a very highly compensated talking head on CNN.

On the eve of the 74th anniversary of D-Day, former Fox News personality and State Department official,  Heather Nauert, spoke in defense of a US Ambassador to Germany who is reported to be on the wrong side of acceptable to German political officials  What transpired in the State Department briefing is absolutely stupefying yet indicative of Trump's staffing decisions.   

Nauert invoked a phantom D-Day relationship with Germany.  The US lost 9,000 fighting men on the beaches of Normandy. Guess which nation was responsible for their deaths. 

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department in Washington, Wednesday, Aug. 9, 2017
 Heather Nauert 
"When you talk about Germany — we have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany," the senior State Department spokesperson said at a June 5 briefing. "Looking back in the history books, today is the 71st anniversary of the speech that announced the Marshall Plan. Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government."

Before we close let's take a couple of minutes to see and hear how MSNBC's Rachel Maddow addressed the obvious State Department FUBAR laced with a chronic lack of professionalism from Nauert.

Shouldn't we expect better from our Executive Branch of Federal government?

Doesn't the nation deserve better from the State Department?

For some reason, I believe the nations deserves much better in the State Department.  Nauert's comments were intern-like Bush League and downright embarrassing.

Presstitutes: Giuliani Hides and Conway Goes 'People Are Starved For Unique Content'

Related image
This past week Trumps increasingly quiet presstitute, Kelly Anne Conway, seeks to rationalize Fox News's, Sean Hannity. Hannity has openly said he is not a journalist. He also has a public history of advising Trump while sitting on Fox News defending all things conservative even to the point of openly lying and doctoring videotape.

As you view what follows, recognize this is the same Trump aide who went here after Sean Spicer was ordered to lie about the size of Trump's inauguration crowd.

It is unfortunate but due to Conway's skills at twisting topics and convoluted answers, the segment is 3:39 minutes long. But, you have to watch the segment for perspective.

Ridiculous, right?  Imagine a vernacular entry into the annals of US English with a background based in a flat-out lie: alternative facts." 

Conway tells the American public that many of them prefer anti-liberal propagandized entertainment regarding all things Trump. 

Conway defends propaganda. Linked. here. The full Crooks & Liars story

There isn't an attorney presstitute who stands taller and more off-the-rocker than Rudy Giuliani. Watch as the former New York City mayor and former federal prosecutor goes bat crazy when confronted with past on-camera remarks which were contrary to his "Trump Presstitute" positions. Undoubtedly a nascent position slated with dollars.

Does personal credibility have a prove?  Obviously, Trump knows how to pay for the preferential talk. 

The real question is do these paid talkers influence your psyche and ideology?

Sunday Morning With Trump Talking Heads Earning Money Via Alternative Facts

Image result for kellyanne conway

Early today CNN's Jake Tapper sat with Trump staffer Kelly Anne Conway for what amounted to a lengthy alternate facts segment. During the segment, Conway apparently stated or implied trump wasn't one who lies. We will join that segment in a but. First, let's remind ourselves (as if we really need to remind ourselves) of Trump's utter lack of veracity, honesty, and credibility.

The day after Donald Trump's inauguration as the 45th President of the United States, he commenced his propaganda and self-defense campaign via dispatching his (then) Press Secretary to declare his inauguration audience was the largest ever.

Spicer was clearly reading text handed to him via the White House Staff ad seemed to have a touch of Trump hyperbole laced throughout the pressers' sentences.  The Tampa Bay Times Fact-checker, Politifact rated the statements "Pants on Fire", while photographs offered an irrefutable counter to Trump's crowd size lie. 
Pants on Fire!
Spicer"That was the largest audience to witness an inauguration, period."
— Sean Spicer on Saturday, January 21st, 2017 in a press conference

Anyone who has access to a television and international news knows Donald Trump has a mental pathology which leads to lying at a record level. Trump staffers who agree to television interviews to counter the reality of Trump as a pathological liar, simply have no regard for their own credibility. They work for money and they work for the now Vs. the future.  There is little to no future in being archived in US History as a presstitute for a president who lies at an unequaled level. 

National press and media have documented the stupefying level of Trump's lack of veracity.  One very revealing graphic related to Trump's lying was published in The New York Times. 

Image result for New York Times trump lies vs obama lies graphic
Since we have referenced a few sources which you might consider liberal (or progressive if the word liberal doesn't become you), it is worthwhile to also show how one Fox News host views Trump's administration with full acceptance of his lies are part of the problem.  And, yes America we do have a problem.

Neil Cavuto

Now let's move to the Jake Tapper interview (short version and the full interview, if you wish)
The full interview

No matter the words Conway uses to deflect away from Trump's lying, rational Americans and people across the globe can see the truth for themselves.  While we wouldn't expect Conway nor Huckabee Sanders to declare Oh yes he lies, we once held a sense of decency and respect for the majority of US presidents. Certainly, each former president was busted for lying at various degrees. Bush (DUBYA) most definitely took the nation to the precipice of an abyss of national death, Trump in 16 months has set the nation on a path of no return.

As Trump's World Turns: Kelly Anne Conway Goes Alternate Facts (Melania VS Michelle?) VIDEO

Watch and listen to Trump's number one presstitute and personal cheerleader respond when asked about national magazines not publishing about Trump's wife: Melania.
"Melania Trump is such a superior and excellent First Lady," Kellyanne told TMZ ... "This country is so lucky to have her."


After 1.3 years of in the Oval Office with clear evidence of personal indifference to racial intolerance and tacit support for overt racism, the rational person would think the use of the word would be offered with caution. Of course, if Conway is bound to tickling Trump's innards as all members of his inner circle, we shouldn't be surprised with her use of the word "superior." It seems I may have thought my way into the full understanding of the use of the word. The thought Conway would respond with any level of honesty would mean real trouble around the White House, for Conway. Yes, it was probably best to clone frequent use of the obvious lie to get through the moment.

Aside from handing a subliminal visual to the nation's white supremacists, Conway also offered Trump supporters an Inauguration crowd moment. 

Largest inauguration crowd ever.

The lie is one reality; pictures offer a real truth about Trump's inauguration.

If you have 48 seconds more for another video, watch Conway state what it seems she is now doing regarding Michelle Obama (in additions to playing the bigot card). Alternative Facts.  

Another case of Trump shaping the world in which we live. Conway's addition to the American lexicon is shameful while lacking any level of credibility. 

Now about Michelle Obama.

Michelle Obama worked tirelessly on issues related to child obesity She was very visible in matters related to Veterans family well being.  She is a law school graduate. Her life is consumed with her daughters and blessed with a living other.  And she is married to a class gentleman who will be regarded by US History as the president who presided over bringing the nation back from economic ruin.

Trump's wife?  I will simply refer you to a Googe search of her past and remind you of her history of plagiarizing speeches, false degree claims and a The View appearance at which she joined her husband as leading birthers.

Kelly Anne Conway Defends Trump Jr. The LIfe Of The Presstitute

...and the wanna be presstitute who eventually claims sexual harassment after seduction for a job.

Image result for conservative newsWe write a lot about Trump's cadre of presstitutes who comply with cable news producer requests to occupy interview seats along with the network hosts.  

CNN's role in staging interactions with Trump's talking head alternative fact purveyor is unsurpassed on cable network news relates shows.  This morning's New Day followed the script with Trump's "alternative facts" queen Kelly Anne Conway: Trump's closest (and most prolific) presstitute who practice interview times minute dominance better than any other. It is important to recognize Conway's role of spewing Trumpism replete with agreed upon lies (alternative facts) while consuming airtime to the point of stifling a productive interview. Cable news segments have tight time requirements with newsroom producers and directors guiding and directing the interview. The on air host knows when it is time to cut away from a segment, especially if a segment advertisement awaits. It is obvious the guest also have a sense of over consumption of minutes means less time to field real question base din genuine concerns.

An opportunity to show as a spokesperson fulfilling the Administration's responsibility to communicate while working to tie the interview into a time wasted knot seems to be a way to please Trump and Bannon. It doesn't seem to matter that such interactions make the presstitute appear as a dishonest purveyor of lies and misinformation; highly paid albeit, but nonetheless a lying on camera talking head. 

After Sunday's New York Times report, Donald Trump Jr. admitted to reports he met with "a formidable operator with a history with the Kremlin" Trump and company must have spent the night strategizing on air minutes for Conway and company.  Conway hit the morning trail ready to spew the innocence of Trump Jr. while bent on talking throw interview segments like a robot covered in skin wearing a hairpiece. (No we are not saying Conway wears  a hair piece). 

Consider a Mediaite piece with two early morning segments of Conway running interference for Trump's increasingly unpopular administration. The segment ran for quite some time as Conway is a skilled presstitute.

ABC News also had its Sunday morning session with Conway.

It should be noted, Conway spent copious air minutes disparaging Trump when she served as a mouthpiece for GOP candidate Ted Cruz. (Exhibit 1,  Exhibit 2, Exhibit 3). Exhibit 3 is of particular note as it also has a noted Trump presstitute for the campaign: Scotty Neil Hughes. 

It is not possible to avoid a summary conclusion that Trump's presstitutes are of questionable character who probably fit the job description requirement of spewing alternative facts (lies) without hesitation. 

Over this past weekend, The Daily Mail UK and other print media reported on an unfolding lawsuit of sexual harassment against another Fox News personality.

Payne presents Making Money on Fox Business, but is currently suspended
Fox News Charles Payne
Racy emails have emerged that were purportedly sent  from married analyst Scottie Nell Hughes (pictured) to Fox Business host Charles Payne during their three-year affair
Accuser Scotty Nell Hughes
  Oh boy!

Before we go on, let's refresh our memory of comments of " I was vying for a contributors contract" from victims of Fox News host's sexual harassment. Another point worthy, is the reality the pubic claims of harassment seem to solely fall on "hot shots" show hosts who worked for the Fox News Network.
The emails also appear to imply weekend sexual encounters
Yes, Let's Make America Great Again

How about a teaser from The Daily Mail UK

"at an election-night 'war room', she said she walked in on Hughes and a nationally syndicated radio DJ: 'his pants were undone, half of her clothes were off, his hair was disheveled"
Make you want to review images of conservative nationally syndicated radio DJ's to see which have enough hair for their coiffure to become "disheveled."

Payne has addressed the reports and the harassment suit, Hughes official did not respond to The Daily Mail. 

Heavy dot com also developed a reminder post about Hughes. 

Oh the life and times of the presstitute and some who wish to secure income via "any means" necessary.

When A Nation Follows A Pathological Liar

.......Bad things soon follow.

As we hear reports of Donald Trump's massive flip-flopping over the past few days, we thought it would be worthwhile to highlight a few instances.

The only explanation for what follows is a very unstable mind.

Jobs Anger Blog

Trump's promise to stay in the White House instead of playing golf (as he accused President Obama of doing too much) was just another campaign lie. As the top chart shows, he has spent much more time on the golf course than any of the last three presidents in the first 81 days (or even all three of the last presidents combined).

Is it possible the common Trump voter exist without a great deal of dissonance regarding Trump's use of the maximum cache of lies during the 2016 Campaign?

Trump's unbelievable number of golf outings since taking office is one issue. Beyond the hypocrisy based on his yeas long criticism of President Obama's infrequent outings, think about the obvious lack of attention to the Presidency. There is now way any person who occupies the Oval Office can effectively delegate leading our nation off to thirty somethings.

Trump campaign against NATO ("V Putin's number two mission after managing an adversarial existence with the US.) NO MORE agaisnt NATO!
Trump against China: "Currency manipulator."  NO MORE against CHINA as a currency manipulator. 
Over-the-top pervasive campaign lies
Can a rational person actually not find cause for concern?

On more......

Before we leave the utter fallacy of Trump as US President, let's check-in with two Trump "presstitutes." Kelly Anne ("Alternate facts") Conway and Jeffrey Lord as top-of-the-line examples of purveyors of the trumpism. Politicians who win elections with a high level of dependence on the "Lie' must employee the nation's best and most prolific liars. Conway is such a consummate and effective liar, Trump overlooked her criticism against him while employed by Trump's nomination competitor Ted Cruz

Acclaimed journalist Michael Wolff recently sat for an interview with Conway. We are not posting the complete interview based on of reading the interview was pretty unremarkable until Wolff appropriately handed Conway a characterization which fits like an expensive glove. "'re the darkness."
Wolff: How personal do you take this?

Conway: How personal do I take what?
Wolff: This coverage of you … “democracy dies in darkness.” Because I’m gonna tell you when they say “democracy dies in darkness”– you are the darkness.”
Conway: I’m not the darkness. Didn’t you see the skit, “Walking on Sunshine?” Conway went on to say, It’s like I tell small children. Just because someone says something doesn’t make it true.

When the presstitute, goes way off the rails without any regarding for the quality of character of which he worships.

The presstitute is yet another sick manifestation of Donald J. Trump.

The CNN Host and The Trump Presstitute

We start with a basic example of deductive reasoning (AKA Syllogism). We are aware you know the basics of the syllogism, but allow me to refresh, remind or inform (if necessary).

  1. an instance of a form of reasoning in which a conclusion is drawn (whether validly or not) from two given or assumed propositions (premises), each of which shares a term with the conclusion, and shares a common or middle term not present in the conclusion (e.g., all dogs are animals; all animals have four legs; therefore all dogs have four legs ).
    • deductive reasoning as distinct from induction.

      "logic is rules or syllogism"

Now, to the main point of the post. Yes, Donald Trump and his "presstitutes" are the central focus of this piece. The syllogism:

Donald Trump lies 90% of the time
Chronic liars are more comfortable around liars
Thus Trump would have lying as a central trait of any hired"presstitute"

Logic dictates the chronic liar would have to employ like liars if for no other reason but to cover his or her lies. Also, recognize the chronic liar is more comfortable around people who understand his/her need to first in terms of the lie. We cold refer to it as a form of "I'm OK, You're OK" among comrade chronic liars?

While Reince Priebus, Trump's White House Chief of Staff, and Spicer, Trump's Press Secretary, fulfill his wishes, as well as anyone, could imagine, think about the life and lies of his chief public on-camera presstitute: Kelly Anne Conway.

Watch as CNN's Jake Tapper twisted Conway into a bundle of rambling gibberish.

The New York Times and a You Tube CNN video segment.

How about a quick piece on how her boss is dealing with US broadcast? No, this is not normal.  What follows seems to be cut right from the annuls of international fascism.
