All Things Trump: 10,000 Lies

   Image result for pinocchio gif nose

It has been just over two years since Trump occupied the Oval Office and the US Presidency. Records, polls and " ...the best ever" have been his common and most uttered babbling over the past few years. Well, he has now ascended to a level in the US Presidency which has never been so high and will never fall to another US President.

The Washington Post has fact-checked Trump to the 10,000 lies level. ASTONISHING and shameful at the very same time.

Is there any wonder current polling is showing a deep lack of interest in reelecting the carnival barker so call "President"The Independent UK.

Let's end with a link to the Washington Post piece.

Growing US White Supremacy

We recognize US racism is a topic many of our readers avoid reading or read reluctantly but life in America is changing and many are practicing an avoidance demeanor which will bring us back to our past (internationally).

We persevere! 

It is a fact there were many many across the span of humankind who may have taken the position of: "Sssshhh, if we draw attention, they will turn on us."
 David Himbara former Rwandan head of state 
"When they came for Umuhoza Ingabire, I did not speak out; I was not a Hutu." 
Martin Niemöller (1892–1984) was a prominent Protestant pastor who emerged as an outspoken public foe of Adolf Hitler and spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. 
Niemöller is perhaps best remembered for the quotation:
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—

Because I was not a Socialist. 
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—  
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—  
Because I was not a Jew. 
—and there was no one left to speak for me.
And, life has a tendency to repeat itself, if we allow such.

Well known white supremacist and Charles Barkley's choice to interact with one of the nation's most overt white supremacists.

Short version.

More: the full interaction.
