Trump: The Lying King




Image result for telling the lie

.....tell incessant lies and it shows as pathology. 

Trump oftens declares himself the first ,the most, or the best.  Well, there is evidence he is correct; when it comes to lying.

He will certainly go down in US history as the most prolific liar to ever occupy the Oval Office.  The Tampa Bay Times fact checker, Politifact, maintians a regularly updated tally of Trump's veracity, or lack there of with associated links. Here.

Politifact


The fact-checker has anointed Trumo Lie of the Year for consevutive years.

From a few weeks ago through today.




"It's Growing"

Let's take a run through a few cases of White House lying to the detriment to the nation.
From another angle, it looks even worse.



Democratic Strategist, Keith Boykin posted the following on his Twitter page. 
 A bit more...... 
The son-in-law is an issue who actially rivlas Trump as Manchurian Candidate of the decades. 
Along with our piece (incessant liar) theme here is another large lie from Trump's this week's support Roy Moore side eye visit to Florida.

News.groopspeak

Simply, not true. the U.S. Census shows black home owership peaking at 47.9% in 2004, before the housing crash. In 2017, black family home ownership is down to 42.7 percent.

Trump is a shame to humankind. The only way to deal with a person who is so consumed with lying as a first output of his memta processes, is to call him out with each and every lie.

Roy Moore: " Getting rid of amendments after 10th would 'eliminate many problems':



In 2011 Roy Moore sat for a radio interview with a well-known Radio conspiracy theorists: "Aroostook Watchmen", hosted by Maine residents Jack McCarthy and Steve Martin

The interview inclcuded rambling asserrtons, insane claims and outright nuttiness for a patilaur radio audiece  Moore spoke about abolishing many US Constitutional Amendments. A couple of Amendments Moore spoke of was the 14th and 17th Amendments which legalized rights for former svles and womens rights respectivley.

We have embed three audio segments from a CNN piece regarding Moore's Draconian and Paleozoic Era social views







It is sad the people of Alabama will have opportuity to so shape our future with consideration of electing or not electing yet another straightup conservative racist and bigot to the US Senate.

Roy Moore Impacts The GOP, Black Surrogates Losing Battles, And One Minority Escapes The Party



Let us start where it counts: alleged pedophilia.



What you witnessed in the video segment was the long-term effect of inherent in millions who reside in the deep south. Let there be no mistake, the Republicanism is a common mental state across the nation. But, I wager you will not find such a severe case of chronic republicanism couped with over active disregard for pedophilia in most red states.

In order to appreciate current conservative mind-shaping and Trump rationalizing , let's step back for a quick CNN segment regarding Trump's "fine people" comments after the white supremacists rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. "....fine people on both sides."

Seriously?


Now for the point at hand. 

Watch as Trump's number one "black" presstitute works for his CNN paycheck. I use the word "Black" due to reality African-American conservatives seem to harbor a great deal of disdain for use of the more common vernacular as an identifier of black people who live in America and are of American ancestry (non-immigrant post slavery). 

Paris Rennard battles with CNN host Chris Cuomo.  I would be amazed it in the segment, Rennard didn't throw out his common defense against people "questioning his blackness."  A common ploy which seems to have roots in his own discomfort with his chosen political affiliation.  He also knows 96% of African-Americans hold the GOP in contempt for reasons he chooses to overlook or simply ignore. 

Rennard knows, to his core, the GOP doesn't give one damn about the African-American community. If you really need evidence, take a close look.

Take a close look at the Mitt Romney website from the 2012 campaign.

Romney campaign website.

Has anyone ever asked Rennard about the 2012 outreach menu?

As you watch Rennard go about spewing Trump apologism, notice his demeanor and associated strategy when challenged about Roy Moore's affinity for a tine of US slavery. The "blackness defense" rolls-out on cue.



Oh, know Rennard isn't the only Trump talking head who earns a nice paycheck from CNN. The following segment is relevant in understanding the level and scope of Trumpism as its fissures into the black community, via another popular CNN Trump surrogate.



Apparently, one former Breitbart News editor has had enough of the GOP.

Roy Moore And Donald Trump's GOP



Image result for roy moore yearbook inscription

After the 2012 General Elections and the loss of GOP candidate for the White House, the RNC/GOP undertook the "why's and what for" of the loss. The RNC Chair eventually came up with a nothing burger wrapped in a mind-warping report which seemed to support the need to diversify its voting base.  If you are reading this page this specific piece, it is impossible that you did not hear former RNC Chair's need for a GOP autopsy. If you have visited The Progressive Influence on a fairly regular basis, you may recall our positing the GOP needed a lobotomy, not an autopsy. As a point of specificity, an autopsy is only performed in cases of death.  

The report came forth and was immediately existentially dismissed by a political party with a core base of "angry white men" and a growing faction of white supremacy.  And, all unchallenged by the leadership of the party.

"Growth and Opportunity Project," 100-page report was first announced at the National Press Club in 2013, after Obama's win over Mitt Romney.


As you peruse what follows from an ABC News report from the RNC Chair Reince Priebus, spend a minute reviewing the extent to which the GOP relegated the black community to that of the "Invisible Negro."  In August 2012, The Grio reported a striking and shameful example of GOP concern with outreach to the African American Community.  

Look closely:


Romney campaign website.


The& "Invisible Negro." 

According to ABC News Priebus's expensive "autopsy" yielded ample amount of information for Priebus to offer a facade of caring accompanied by a need to appeal to minorities in a very different manner.
Priebus noted that the party's policies are fundamentally sound but require a softer tone and broader outreach, include a stronger push for African-American, Latino, Asian, women and gay voters.
"To be clear, our principles our sound, our principles are not old rusty thoughts in some book," Priebus said, but the "report notes the way we communicate our principles isn't resonating widely enough." 
"I think our policies are sound, but I think in many ways the way we communicate can be a real problem." 
"We need to campaign among Hispanic, black, Asian, and gay Americans and demonstrate we care about them, too. We must recruit more candidates who come from minority communities. But it is not just tone that counts. Policy always matters." 
The report has an extensive list of ways to reach out to voters of color, including recruiting candidates and outreach to universities, especially a "strong focus" on historically black colleges. The $10 million field program will begin immediately and hire hundreds of paid field workers to reach out to minority and female voters. 
"We've never put this many paid boots on the ground this early in an off-year," Priebus said. "We have also never been this dedicated to win minority votes household to household."
Needless to say, the GOP autopsy was a sad facade which went no further than Preibus half-hearted remarks. Within a few years, Preibus's shelved autopsy stood as a dust collecting relic of a socially Paleozoic Era political party with deeply ingrained (and inbred) bigotry and racism. A party which will move in a diametrically opposite path to the autopsy and Priebus's remarks straight to a party which fully embraced racism, racists, white supremacist, and social bigots.

The GOP and RNC, for sake of one Senate vote, has formally and officially endorsed the candidacy of  Roy Moore: racist, homophobic, and alleged pedophile.

While cable news offers may panel discussion regarding More and his party, the following two-part discussion accurately embodies the social horror of a party so ent on offering billions in tax breaks to the nation's wealthy (including themselves), they embraced a man who would have been welcome as a high operative in Hitler's Third Reich.

Part I


Part II


The plight of the right-wing presstitute is comparable to that of a fish out of the water. There isn't one intellectually credible thought available in defense of his party and Roy Moore.

Roy Moore "Spokesperson": Words For Hire Machine



Image result for evasive denial
Evasive Denial


Time doesn't permit devotion of lots of time to conservative "presstitute" (words ad demagoguery for hire) operatives.  Yet, we will always seek to show them when possible and illustrate who they earn their keep.

Alabama senatorial candidate Roy Moore has apparently hired an over the top callous talking head who could probably give Trump's KellyAnne Conway a run for her "alternative facts." 

Watch Janet Moore with two CNN show hosts on consecutive days.  

While we realize viewing a set of video isn't a great way to spend your time, we also recognize the importance of watching and listening to people who say and do anything for a paycheck.


CNN segments (AC 360)


Cooper: I want to hear Moore's positions
Cooper: Moore took an oath to mislead?
Frankly, I don't find presstitutes like Moore any different than those employed by Adolf Hitler and Joseph Goebbels as they sought to mind-shape a nation in the mid-1920s: it worked now didn't it.

Roy Moore, Alabama Church And Blasphemy (VIDEO)



US conservatism is fizzling into an insane bucket of shameful disgust and nation-killing ideology.

Snopes will walk us through the latest example of what some consider evangelicalism.  

Did an Alabama Church Display a Sign Comparing Roy Moore to Jesus?


Living Way Ministries said its pastor did not approve of the sign, but at least two other churches were also caught using a blatantly political sign.
SNOPES.COM

If you have a few additional minutes consider watching another example of Alabama conservative cesspool ideology regarding Roy Moore, an accused abuser of teenaged girls years in his past. The CNN segment which follows includes the booking of a Roy Moore spokesperson who emptied the "gutter cup" via accepting the appearance an appearing on camera with a mission to use the pregnancy of the CNN host as a prop. A prop with an inference that her unborn child should stand as a balance regarding the unborn (abortion) vs Moore's alleged abuse. You may know Moore and they are using potential Democrat Party support for abortion as leverage against Moore's documented prohibition from local malls and restrictions from hanging around a local YWCA (as a thirty-something).



Would the Moore demagogue protect the rights of unborn girls with total disregard for men who prey upon them as they grow to puberty?

Who Pays James O'Keefe To Produce Fake Gotcha Video? Maybe....




As we are against thrust into the shadowy and mind-shaping propagandist world of Americans number one conservative surreptitious (false) video purveyor, I am sure you wonder: "OK, so who pays this schmuck for his highly edited tapes?"  

Who pays James O'Keefe?

Thn8ik Progress posted a piece regarding O'Keefe's Money people. linked here.

Crooks & Liars also offers a perspective which is hard to simply ignore.

Project Veritas' Funding Comes Courtesy Of The Koch Donation Laundering Machine

James O'Keefe's Project Veritas is back at it with their entrapment style videos aimed at proving what idiots they are. This time, The Washington Post busted them when they sent their undercover faux victim to see if their writers would bite on an absurd fake sexual assault story on Roy Moore. Somehow, they reasoned that if…

O'Keefe Project Veritas Busted






Image result for james o'keefe

“I am not doing an interview right now, so I’m not going to say a word,” James O’Keefe, the founder of Project Veritas and convicted misdemeanor right wing "gotcha ya and fake video fiend.

The evasive declaration of a conservative operative when he and his organization seem busted for attempting to assist alleged child molester, Roy Moore. O'Keefe's specialty; deploy fake people in setup gotcha scenarios as an underground hitman. You may recall O'Keefe's troopers snared a CNN executive (producer) towards mid-2017. While the CNN producer deserved exposure for his boasting machismo, it is no surprise O'Keefe's troopers have never targeted Fox News.

It seems Project Veritas is busted for a failed attempted to "get dirty" on the Washington Post.  As you know the Post is the media outlet which dispatched reporters to Alabama for interviews and discussion regarding Moore's past predilection for dating and consorting with teenagers in his late twenties and early thirties.  

The following video shows a woman named Jaime Phillips interviewing a Washington Post reporter.


The Washington Post picks up the story. Linked here.


How about a few closing remarks to celebrate a virtual bust of O'Keefe and his null organization? Project Veritas seems amazingly similar to black ops organizations used by any and all dictators throughout modern world history. Another key point. Why does the Right need an undercover operative to assist or validate attacks on the media? Also, how does O'Keefe bill or invoice for his services?

In all cases with all considerations, it is interesting and telling to see someone with a conservative vested interest seek to stick it to the Washington Post. The Post did to places the words in the mouth of that woman who descriptively spoke about Roy Moore "tight white underwear episode."

CNN Also Booked Breitbart Propagandist and Rightwing Silly Talker

Small image (person) of the day!

As we experience the reality of an alleged child molester close to winning an election tt he US Senate, America's political/social Right is charged up for the defense.

Charged up and as effective as Auburn's offensive line front-four, as solid as the old west wagon train circled to fend off an attack, and the Roy Moore defenders are as intellectually diminutive as a nocturnal snail slugs.

Watch the following ever-increasingly popular (MSNBC's Ali Velshi's too frequent guest) and now CNN, talking-head Breitbart editor: Joel Pollack.

Watch and listen to 30 seconds of Rightwing media insanity.



If you need a more in-depth perspective of Rightwing Bannon and Mercer media, the following is a seven-minute segment with Pollack and his MSNBC host facilitator Ali Velshi.



If we can twist our minds to the possibility US media has a dual role, it isn't a surprise MSNBC and CNN books such a feeble demagogue. The roles are clear: Inform between entertaining viewers who are the basis for advertisement revenue.

While Fox News is the ultimate purveyor of Rightwing ideology and mind-altering propaganda, we must not overlook the shortcomings of cable news media we tend to prefer.  

When Trump attacks media (other than FoxNews) and people like Pollack make a mockery of the venue while defending an alleged pedophile, the nation suffers greatly.

Sexual Predation Takes A Back Seat To TOP 20 Percent Income Earners Tax Cuts



The current news surrounding everyone's sexual harassment and their respective (yet tragic) victims will eventually prove good for the nation. Of course, the abuse is worldwide and we are only just beginning to see its pervasive reach and scope.

While cases of harassment have occasionally sprinkled across our news, Donald Trump's involuntary admission of abuse not only is the current catalyst, it is a fact known before his election. Apparently, most Americans didn't give a damn about trump's date vagina grabbing and inclination to kiss "um" as of a serial kisser.  It all passed into US History without anticipation of what was to come. Since the election of a totally unhinged occupant of the White House and despite white and non-voters electing Trump, we have tsunami-like accusations of similar abuse. In two cases, Roy Moore and Kevin Spacey, public accusation involving past abuse of minors. 

Earlier today the Washington Post published a piece with the following video.  

Donald Trump 
“Women are very special. I think it’s a very special time, a lot of things are coming out and I think that’s good for our society and I think it’s very, very good for women and I’m very happy a lot of these things are coming out. I’m very happy it’s being exposed.”
— President Trump, remarks to reporters, Nov. 21, 2017

As of this week, the Trump cabal has turned a different face on the accusations against Roy Moore. It seems the importance of a vote for the nation's wealth far exceeds past false aura of GOP moral values.

Trump has now gone public with off-handed support for Roy Moore, while his presstitutes and surrogates carry the flag of full support.
While many non-elected Republican officials are speaking out against reports of Roy Moore's alleged sexual predation, earlier today a CNN segment capsulized the Republican spectrum of sentiment.

Fair Housing? Pro Publica Bust Facebook




Silver State Fair Housing Counil

Well, I have been busy working the oils and canvas, but this article drew my attention. If you are averse to matters important to equal right don't read this post. If you are not bothered by creeping construction of supremacy of one group of people over others check the turkey and leave this post. If growing evidence of authoritarianism coupled with clear evidence millions is quietly enabling it, good luck with your future. I am seeing it even in visual arts these days. Our favorite social-media outlet seems to have even more issues with accepting advertisements (Hint: Recall Russian ads against Clinton and Sanders). How about ads which discriminate against African-Americans and Jews?

ProPublica (nineteen photos). Pro Publica ran a discriminatory test ad; it was approved in minutes.


What we have here is an ugly example of Roy Moore's comment about his aversion fo 1960s rights laws. trump effectively endorsed Moore on yesterday.

Pro Publica _______________
Earlier this year Facebook said it had rolled out a system that would catch advertisers who tried to buy housing, credit and employment ads that excluded people by race.

We tested to see whether or not Facebook actually fixed the problem.

They didn't. Our sample discriminatory ads for rental apartments sailed through. Every single one we approved.

These are just a few examples. All of these categories are protected under The Fair Housing Act of 1968. (Full story: http://propub.li/2mPSmNf)

Quick Hit: AJ Plus and Roy Moore's Robot Attorney



The following short video is well worth less than two minutes of our time. The Roy Moor's associate/lawyer in the video has become the visible face of a man who has a history of being barred from malls, and a local YWCA.  Who among us lives parts of their lives in malls and the YWCA? Young girls and boys are often denizens of the local mall.

The lawyer as the star of this short clip shows what seems a seedy and null side of news of abusive treatment of young girls 40 years ago.  As you what a man who seriously reminds of walkers for the TV series The Walking Dead, offers overt racism and over the top silliness as he goes about his job.

A Lack of Decency And A Twist Against Diversity While Defending A Self-Soiled Politician (VIDEO)





We posted this segment in our final post of yesterday. It is such an important glimpse into GOP politics and Alabama racism, we feel it is worth a video only post.

We often hear conservative feign our nation is free of bigotry and racism; we also know there are millions upon millions of so-called liberals who also cringe at the word "racism." Let's be honest and face the reality most white people really do not have a deep interest in issues related to race until the issue strikes close to their homes or family. On a personal note, we actually notice a decrease in readers of this site when we post a few too many posts with titles indicating matters of race, US racism, white supremacy and whoa be it upon us to post about "white privilege."

Since we live in a nation with uber-wealthy political donors who have deep inner cores of racism, is there any surprise the GOP would exist with an inarguable undercurrent and noticeable fissure of overt racism? The question was a rhetorical question as the answer is obvious. One clear example of our point emanates from legal entanglements involving one of Trump and Bannon's major financial money broker: Robert Mercer.

A few weeks ago the Washington Monthly published a piece focused on a legal battle between Mercer and a former business associate: David Magerman. In politics, worldwide money is a driver. If money is a driver, and it is an irrefutable driver, is it at all a surprise politician's consider billionaires their most beloved constituents Further on, would it take much to convince you politicians work hard to repay their election donations and PAC contributions via working to please or placate the uber-wealthy donors? The following excerpt relates to the legal entanglements of Magerman Vs Mercer. Notice Megerman states in private conservation he personally heard mercer categorizes US Jim Crow laws as "not important."

Washington Monthly

Excerpt
In court papers filed on Friday, Magerman argues that following a pair of phone conversations in which Mercer expressed arguably racist opinions, Magerman felt obliged to inform the press about his boss’s viewpoints—and that he received verbal assurance by Renaissance C.O.O. Mark Silber that the statements he intended to make were “permissible under company policy.” Those racist opinions, according to Magerman, included comments such as: a) The United States began to go in the wrong direction after the passage of the Civl Rights Act in the 1960s; b) African Americans were doing fine in the late-1950s and early-1960s before the Civil Rights Act; c) The Civil Rights Act “infantilized” African Americas by making them dependent on government and removing any incentive to work;d) The only racist people remaining in the United States are black; and e) White people have no racial animus toward African Americans anymore, and if there is any, is it not something that the government should be concerned with.

The best part of the filing, at least to us, was that when Magerman “point[ed] out that society was segregated before the Civil Rights Act and African Americans were required to use separate and inferior schools, water fountains, and other everyday services and items,” Mercer allegedly responded that “those issues were not important.” In a subsequent phone conversation (the “white supremacist” one), Magerman claimed Mercer initially “disputed that he had said such things, although he did not actually deny saying them” and “in the course of rehashing the conversation . . . repeated many of these same views, and even cited research that allegedly supported his opinion that the Civil Rights Act harmed African Americans economically.” (A spokesman for Renaissance declined to comment.)

Is there any wonder Trump has a following which includes many fissures into white supremacy?  

Let's take the piece back to Roy Moore. Alabama's candidate for a special election to replace Jeff Sessions in the US Senate.  Roy Moore is a racist in a state with many racist denizens and evangelicals who seem to find his serial sexual abuse of teenage girls acceptable, or at least not worthy of scorn.

During a Monday night campaign stop, Moore lamented a society with restrictions on state  (government) sanctioned religion as well as clear lamenting of Civil Rights laws circa 1965.


"they started creating new rights in 1965"
And, how does Moore's racism translate for people with whom he associates or contracts for services?  An exact and clear example manifest on MSNBCs late morning Velshi & Ruehl show.


The following video runs for ten full minutes.  While most the video offers a glimpse into GOP robotism via an attorney who seems a member of The Walking Dead "walkers", lit includes the clearest example of conservative racism over the past few months. If you are not aware, Ali Velshi was born in Kenya and is a Canadian citizen.   What does the racist attorney do?  He reaches to ethnicity and race in a defense of a sleazy client.  

The segment also includes a telling image of Moore's signature on a high school student's yearbook page and very recent signatures.

The full morning segment (10:06 minutes)



You have seen the core elements of racism and an example of a person who willing lies and offers services (for a fee) without any sense of decency. (UPDATE: Stephanie Ruhle spoke this morning about the shock of Moore's associates racism.)

When a nation allows racism to ooze to the level of increased acceptance of public exhibition we are doomed to more of that follows.
While the perpetrated seemed intoxicated, how is it no one stepped up to work at bringing the attack to an end. Yes, of course, I recall the racist killing of two citizens who attempted to stop an attack on a woman wearing traditional cultural Islamic headgear. Is it a reality that killing has worked in pushing "right thinking" people into a closet of what they don't see doesn't hurt them. Yet, they saw and heard every word of the racist attack.
