TPI Gazette: Trumpism Devolving (Medicaid And Medicare Cuts)

On the eve of Trump/Ryan's budget release let us remind you of the phoniness, lies and false promises of Trump and his GOP. We should also not forget this:
Trump's budget, expected to be unveiled Tuesday, to include $800B in Medicaid cuts, administration official confirms

"Now hear this" for those who so consistently run to polling places to vote GOP.

Is it possible such GOP attacks on the lifelines of people who are far from high income will finally start to see the light?

Mother Jones, Kevin Drum May 22, 2017

May 2015: "I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid."

Today: "President Trump's first major budget proposal on Tuesday will include massive cuts to Medicaid....Trump's budget plan would follow through on a bill passed by House Republicans to cut more than $800 billion over 10 years. The Congressional Budget Office has estimated that this could cut off Medicaid benefits for about 10 million people over the next decade."

The Guilty plead the Fifth!

One a day when Trump's 'man with Russia" Mike Flynn via his lawyer pleaded the right to avoid self-incrimination, we really must look back at another moment of Trumpism.


I response to a Congressional subpoena to appear before an investigatory committee, Trump's Russian creative, Mike Flynn, has refused to appear citing his Fifth Amendment rights against potential self-incrimination.

Huffington Post Flynn's Fifth
In a letter to the leaders of the Senate intelligence committee posted by the Associated Press, Flynn’s lawyer said that without “assurances against unfair prosecution,” he would “respectfully decline your request for an interview and for the production of documents.”
“The context in which the Committee has called for General Flynn’s testimonial production of documents makes clear that he has more than a reasonable apprehension that any testimony he provides could be used against him,” Flynn attorney Robert Kelner wrote. “Multiple Members of Congress have demanded that he be investigated and even prosecuted. He is the target on nearly a daily basis of outrageous allegations... [that] feed the escalating public frenzy against him.”
“While we recognize General Flynn’s constitutional right to invoke the Fifth Amendment, we are disappointed he has chosen to disregard the Committee’s subpoena request for documents relevant and necessary to our investigation,” responded Sens. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Mark Warner (D-Va.), the chair and ranking member, respectively, of the committee. “We will vigorously pursue General Flynn’s testimony and his production of any and all pertinent materials pursuant to the Committee’s authorities.”During the campaign, Flynn criticized the technology specialist who set up Hillary Clinton’s private email server for invoking his Fifth Amendment rights during a court case.

Taking the Fifth Amendment as a constitutional right to avoid self-incrimination?  Suppose to be fair, I should state the declaration of the "Fifth" doesn't mean the defendant is guilty.

TPI Gazette: Distraction, Dossiers And White Supremacist Interview

......Perception Counts ...Non Progressive News

Politifact: Trump lies with 91% of his comments.  

Only an irrational person could possible twist their mind to believe Trump's first thoughts isn't to speak a lie. The facts are there and irrefutable.  This week we found many examples of lies emanating from the mouth and staff of Trump; CBS News captured and broadcast a few of the more notable lies. O, as some broadcast media chooses to label it: Trump "falsehoods."

Kelly Ayotte defeated by bussed-in illegal voters?  Would someone please push Trump for validating evidence of such lies?

CBS new recently broadcast a week's summary of Trump's lies. The really interesting (and disappointing) aspect of the segment was network producers shying away for calling Trump lies actual lies.

Let's follow for a few minutes another unbelievable story from Media Matters. Think of a time when a president of the United States authorized a chief public relations staff to offer white supremacist media an exclusive interview? Telling isn't it? Trump has a few African-American (or "Blacks as conservative African-Americans prefer to call themselves) who stand tall in support of Trump's every utterance and flatulence release.  One has to wonder how they felt or reacted when Spicer met with the white supremacist? 

Maybe the paycheck supersedes and relegates such insults o 13 million African-Americans and millions across the Jewish Community to an irritation probably soothed by that trip to the bank.

From courting white supremacist to riding the White House of properly questioning and monitoring Cyber Security officials.

Can you imagine the danger of softening issues of cyber security in the White House? It is a critical issue as we are now seeing INTEL agencies worldwide who are closing of Putin's cyber support for Trump's win last November. CNN reports, here.

Time for a quick visit to one of Americans newly coined additions to our lexicon or vernacular: "fake news."  It joins other Trump Administration jargon while expanding his base of manipulation and subterfuge (eg. "alternate facts"). It truly doesn't come anymore serious than this piece from Media Matters.


Ultimately, Trump and his surrogate millionaires fell no one cares about ethics violations.  Really<

And, the Non-Progressive News rambles on. What will Trump bring us tomorrow?

TPI Gazette: Trumpism And A Party Dripping With Racism

Non-Progressive News...

Donald Trump hires, a far right operative who not only has issues with African-Americans (and we assume Latinos), he has issues with Jewish people.  Would Trump go there despite probable support from Adelson?

Facebook Post (Click image)

Now for a quick look at the deep psyche of million across America. As you read and view what follows, you may want to seriously contemplate the level and scope of increasing overuse of racism and racially charged language from the Right. Yes, of course, some on the Right will point to the Left with accusations of "they do it also." Well, in my entire lifetime, I have yet to see or hear a confessed liberal use the "No" word. We are not saying it doesn't take place; we are stating it doesn't show on media, on email, not via any surreptitiously secured communication. 

"The nigger won." (Click image)

Further comment...unnecessary.

If you wonder why such comments have seemed to ooze under the surface among some int eh GOP, think in terms of the proliferation fo such remarks since President Obama was inaugurated in 2009. Also, think about the current overt manifestation of far Right extremists, white supremacists and white nationalist who openly support the GOP and its nascent party leader: Donald Trump. Anti-Trump ad

Did you hear this voicemail left by the Governor of Maine?  (Courtesy Mother Jones) I should add, the Republican governor of Maine. Another GOP governor makes the news for again foraying into guttural levels. An interesting aspect of the Maine governor's disgust? The impetus for the call (voice phone recording) wasn't even a charge of racism. As you view what follows, you will find concern for "high powered" heroin currently in the news. And, yes LaPage has a history of laying his state's drug abuse solely to drug dealers and pimps form Connecticut and New York City. 
Paul LePage, Maine's Governor: “I would like to talk to you about your comments about my being a racist, you c*cksucker," he politely asked...
We have posted below two video segments including video. While we realize there is inherent redundancy in the dual posts, we feel it critical to post a segment in which the actual legislator threatened by the governor.



LePage later invited the Press Herald to his house, where he continued to rail against the “snot-nosed little guy” and say he would’ve loved challenging Gattine to a duel.
“That’s how angry I am, and I would not put my gun in the air, I guarantee you, I would not be (Alexander) Hamilton. I would point it right between his eyes, because he is a snot-nosed little runt and he has not done a damn thing since he’s been in this Legislature to help move the state forward.”

While all MSNBC hosts (and shows) have broadcast regarding LaPage's latest racist manifestation, Joy Ann Reid's early morning broadcast does it best. We prefer the segment because Reid's is the first show to book the Maine legislator LaPage threatened.

Again, each MSNBC host broadcast a segment. Last night's Rachel Maddow show segment was very detailed (albeit it way too long), and I also believe Chris Hayes and Lawrence O'Donnell broadcast notable pieces.  

One more report from CNN: Roger Stone's racism ostracized from CNN.

Rience Priebus "Where Fore Art Thou?"

It is amazing I am still seeing people on news broadcasts, alleged unbiased potential voters, saying they will take their decision right down to the wire. Really?

TPI Gazette: Roger Ailes, Donald Trump And Conservative Hatred

The is so much "ugly" going-on in conservative American, we simply must post-up a gazette. You choose your mustard from an increasingly sour part of American.

Roger Ailes out at Fox. Didn't you ever wonder why so many women on the network employee liberal leg and thigh policies? One has to wonder if Ailes will ever (out of spite) reveal which of his leggy displays "played the game."  I suspect he wouldn't go there until the woman (or women) start to adorn "I didn't do it" or "Didn't Do Roger" buttons on live TV.

Trump Quick Hits!

Ninety-one percent lies....That is pathological to say the very least.

Tuesday night's Republican 'hatred and oozfest was supposed to be about jobs.  Well......

A man of little class.

More Trump uber wealthy servant loving lack of class and insensitivity.

Now there’s the entitled, spoiled brat we all knew Trump Jr. to be. The mask has come off and boy is he ugly on the inside. 
Like his father, Trump Jr. seems to have very little interest in helping anyone else but himself. He found out his gardener missed his own sister’s wedding to work on his property and he couldn’t help but be smug about it. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Now the Trump family is trying to convince America that their history of self-serving behavior will be good for America? Don’t count on it.

New Year's TPI Gazette: GOPism; Carson, Trump, Racist Rant, Editor's Choice

Non-Progressive News...

Let's start our quick Gazette piece with a visit to Politifact and a chain email that continues to flow among the nation's tin-foil heads.  The rational person should question the continued proliferation of such garbage as President Obama will leave office at the end of this year. The more distrusting sorts, as am I, know the genesis of the false depiction and its continued promulgation: racism and an attempt to punish a nation for electing a non-white male president in 2008.

Obama As A Foreign Student (As part of a Politifact "Pants on Fire" Gallery)

Pants on Fire!

This image has been around for a few years now. Here’s a 2013 post from "Tea Party United."

Other Internet debunkers have looked at this before (Snopes, for one), but we wanted to take our own look.
It may not surprise you that it’s a sham.

Read more linked above. If you clink the link and take a few minutes review some of the faces, false reports and outright "pants on Fire" lies, you will notice a heavy social and political  skewering to the Right.  

How about a case of pure subterfuge that shines a light of human sycophancy. A creatively nefarious developer replaced an Adolf Hitler quote with an image and signature of Donal Trump.  The response to the false attribution is noteworthy in delineating the extent of danger inherent if celebrity worship and contempt for US politicians. 

Read the story from the Bipartisan Report, below.



The BiPartisan Report

Sycophancy Kills!

One Twitter guy recommends Jeb Bush deal with Donald Trumps "phonyism" as Trump has benefitted from his association with the WWE.
White House qualified or entertainment hound?  A rhetorical question; I have my answer.

A New Year's Day Gazette wouldn;t be complete without a quick visit to that ever-present racist who, unlike Paty Buchanan, refuses to go ahead and openly flaunt white privilege racism.

Again a racist who declares she is not a racist...How often do you read and hear such?

What was that famous lyrics refrain from the late Reggae icon, Bob Marley,?  "Who Da Cap Fit Let Them Wear it." 
Some will hate you, pretend they love you now,
Then behind they try to eliminate you.
But who Jah bless, no one curse;
Thank God, we're past the worse.
Hypocrites and parasites
Will come up and take a bite.
And if your night should turn to day,
A lot of people would run away.
And who the stock fit let them wear it!
Who the (cap fit) let them (wear it)!

If one lives the life of the racist, one should  proudly wear the collar.

Case in point. The following relates to the very issue of wearing one's racism as proudly as one political preference. A Pennsylvania racist was fired from his job after publicly confronting protesters and calling a camera operator a "Nigger", along with associated Great Ape mimicry. 

He proudly wore his "cap" given to him via his parents right into the reality of the unemployment line. 

Ben Carson in the news!  The following is a comprehensive (yet abbreviated) delineation of Ben Carson's staff resignations. We have shrouded the resignations (without specific name and title details) with a review of some aspects of Carson, "the insane one."

Let's take it from the top.

Ben Carson has issues that seem to center in the very area of the human anatomy for which he carved a historic medical niche.   He reminds of that advice we all received as pre-teens. "If the fool keeps her/his mouth closed, they are not likely to be discovered as a fool."

According to Carson, he spent parts of his life attempting "stabbing" in the neighborhood, threatening his mother with a hammer and throwing bricks at cops cars. The zany former medical doctor never heard the advice from a parent. Since bursting on the political scene with a public confrontation fo President Obama at the National Prayer Breakfast a few years back, Carson has talked himself into a what could be diagnosed as a lack on cogency between his brain and his mouth coupled with an inclination to lie.

Carson's advice when confronted with a Popeye chicken outlet robber. Don't rob me, rob that guy behind the counter. A claim unsubstantiated by Popeyes, not the Washington DC Police Department. How can any sane presidential candidate respond to a mass killing in such a manner? The operative word from the last sentence is "sane."  Ben Carson is not sane.  If you need any validation of such, follow the short videos linked and embed to follow.



Carson saw the cheering New Jersy Muslims as the WTC fell on 9/11.

As with his political opponents Donald Trump, Carson incessantly lies while deflecting off on others.  He claims to have a problem being lied about. No, he clearly has a problem with lying.


As Carson's time on the campaign trail starts to crumble, his "Business Manager" joined CNN to discuss changes in the campaign staff (resignations).  Why is this man titled "Business Manager" vs. the more common campaign staff titles?  

Despite resignations, it is going to be OK.

Why the title of "Business Manager?"  Armstrong Williams knows the GOP will not soon nominate a black republican (the do not embrace the vernacular of African-American) to the top of the GOP presidential ticket. As a longtime friend of Carson, Williams is far too smart to pigeon-hole himself into a position so easily discarded when times go bad. He is also smart to the point of knowing Carson has US dollar marketability; thus personal riches for Williams.  

As to Willam's CNN interview, I posit not one word made a modicum of rational sense. Carson and Willaims speak to a level of GOP insanity never before illustrated in US History. 

We should all thank Donald Trump and Reince Priebus for revealing what all high-information folks have known about the GOP for many years. It doesn't maintain itself as a party of 92% white people with many associated racist fissures since the days of Richard Nixon (personified via Ronald Reagan).

TPI Gazette: Racism, Cop Abuse, Ben Carson, What no Trump?

Non-Progressive News...

Mother Jones (via The Progressive Mind) delves into the Ron and Rand Paul adviser who would buy an endorsement. If you think money in politics only relates to buying media advertisements and paying staff for legal responsibilities, you should think much deeper. We live with a shadowy and real world of political operatives and dirty-tricksters.  Why  does it not surprise the Pauls would find themselves immersed in one such case?

Ben Carson seems to have serious cognitive issues.  He actually believes he can win the nomination of a party that relies on a southern strategy to win election after election. He fails to understand or fails to accept that the vast majority of overt racism exercised against African-Americans emanates from conservative America. The former Neuro-surgeon is so ridden with homophobia his led to a series of over-the-top anti-LGBT statements. He consistently uses analogies to slavery to make points that favor his severe Right political lean.
