The TPI Gazette: Trump Upstaged By A Son; Trump Businesses, Pathetic US Media

Non-Progressive News...

War Hero Talk From A Draft Dodger

Time doesn't permit following, reporting nor commenting on the many manifestations of Donald Trump and his GOP. I am opting for a few quick reads (and video) via Facebook and Twitter posts.

I call it the TPI Gazette and its current focus is our world of Donald Trump and the GOP.

Let's start with a heart-chattering story about Trump's (fraudulent) University which was never a university. Universities must have proper certification and licensing to operate via regional and state charters. Trumps workshop never met the higher education billing while existing as a place for hand-out binders and speaker bureaus of inspirational speakers. In all frankness, one has to consider the mindset of people who would actually pay life savings to follow a carnival barker down a path to a placed called "rip-off." 
If you wonder why Trump is having success in what was once consider a civil, fair and open nation, check out the video link which follows. Without any words, the message is clear. People who worship Trump are people who have devolved into a seething US demographic which Clinton recently called " deplorables."

Imagine what follows from one of Trump's despicable offspring.

 This image says it all. Let's end the politically correct agenda that doesn't put America first. 
If you do not get the deep drift of "juniors" horrific use of the image, take a few minutes for a short piece from National Public Radio (NPR). As you read the piece, recall NPR is considered the most reliable of all US media.

Now for much more serious reporting from Newsweek.

While media is awash in Hillary Clinton's misfortune of falling ill and oozing over all things Trump, Newsweek published a piece of journalism which should have relegated the prospect of Trump's candidacy to that of an also-ran who should drop out of the fall elections.

Kurt Eichenwaldal on Trump's overseas connections

Linked video

If we as a nation do not recognize Trump as an international wheeler dealer who cannot serve in pubic office without consideration of his business dealings, we deserve what would come form a Trump administration.

As Trump Jr. traipsed across the airways over the past few days, another notable moment stands out. During a discussion of the Newsweek article and Trump's many overseas financial connections, partners and only heaven know what else, 'junior' asked for "trust me" as he stated his father would divorce himself of all business dealings should he win the presidency. "TRUST ME," from a person who's father has been rated by fact checkers as lying 91% of the time. Watch the following video at the 6:09-minute mark till its end.  "TRUST ME?"

"Trust me"

Let's end on a campaign related note. First, US media often mention Clinton's lack of "transparency." She was especially blasted after she succumbed to environment and issues related to "walking" pneumonia during herSeptp. 11, Ground Zero visit.   Well, comparisons show Clinton is far more transparent than her opponent. It is amazing cable media doesn't seem to find time to explore Trump's lack of transparency.

Since we are now on the topic of media coverage, how about a graphic showing the lack of coverage on an issue that is just today gaining traction (Trump's Foundation) vs. a case of "walking" Pneumonia.  Are we as a nation really this shallow?

Are we really so very shallow?

The TPI Gazette: Ben Carson Rambles On Fox News Plus A GOP Gallery Of Ridiculousness

Non-Progressive News...

While the GOP Primary field offers a gallery of candidates who represent regressive economic and social ideology, the field also includes two documented carnival barkers. Both Donald Trump and Ben Carson are performing at the level of very effectively in garnering attention and polling numbers from US conservatives who may wear the collective collar of "Tea Party." While Trump has major issues with "lying for effect" and developing a solid base of bigots and white supremacists (who are becoming overt in their support, pulls up a distant second when we consider outright over the top insanity from Ben Carson.

Carson often reminds of a robot programmed to speak and act in certain manner when faced with pre-programmed scenarios. When forced outside the programmed responses, he stumbles and rambles like a child caught with one hand in the candy jar.  His handlers have a candidate who in many ways reminds of a Sarah Palin with a brain. Yet, he is so far outside the reality of a viable presidential candidate he is often embarrassing.  I should also add, I firmly believe he suffers from some for of cognitive degeneration that results in whacked-out thoughts emanating from this mouth. 

Watch as Carson runs up against a Fox News host this past Sunday.  
After Crooks & Liars piece, give some thought to pursuing a few Twitter post (with links to other 2016 ridiculousness).

Crooks & Liars

Ben Carson Can't Name Any Of Our Allies For His International Coalition

On this morning's Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Ben Carson how he would defeat ISIS and after a lengthy word salad response, Wallace tried to pin him down on detailing something real so he asked him who he would bring first into an International military coalition. As you'll see, Ben had trouble naming our allies…

The TPI Gazette: Jeb Bush, "White Lives Matter", Ben Carson, Mexico's President

Megyn Kelly has been a good storm trooper for Fox News. She did a surprise job of appropriately questioned Donald Trump in the first GOP Debate, and now she suffers the wrath of American plutocracy. And, it has to feel as if Nero ordered her as sacrifice. After declaring to the world Santa and Jesus are white, and before that co-signing Bill O'Reilly's support for pepper spraying protesting college students, she may find her devotion to duty and possible attempt to appear as a credible debate host failed the Fox News model. Maybe, her role was to appear bland and cute, and follow the other Fox News hosts in soft balling the first debate. What we are now seeing is the perfect example of Trumps recent admission that whining is a winning strategy (with sycophants, conservatives and money hungry cable news executive).

After the death threats she's been getting from Trump supporters, she better bring some bodyguards...Posted by Salon on Thursday, August 13, 2015
Death threats from Trump supporters? How does that differ from Brown shirt thugs in the late 1930s Germany.

I must do this again.  


 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:
Martin Niemöller, a prominent Protestant pastor who opposed the Nazi regime. He spent the last seven years of Nazi rule in concentration camps. Germany, 1937.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.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me

 Megyn Kelly may very well feel as such.

Mexico's President doesn't seem to feel Trumps wall acorss teh US will be "paid for" by his country.  I wonder if Trump will Twitter "whip" Mexico's President tonight. Trump has spent weeks calling Mexico's leaders so much smarter than our national leaders. Maybe, so but it doesn't take much cognitive acuity to discern Trump is lying about building a wall and forcing another nation to pay for the wall.

Now let's visit an issue that is front an center for Republican candidates since they have no other hot button issues for their voters and Independents who are so inclined. Abortion is the issue for the GOP that for 2016 supersedes their secondary issue: terrorism. 

Do you think for one second the GOP would address any, but one of the issues depicted in the graph? Remember, they do not have issues via the US economy, Transportation (Infrastructure), Climate Control, nor obvious and despicable growing cop militarization.

Abortion is the 2016 'biggie." Well, there are skeletons in the closet from some potential 2016 candidates. Rubio has stated forced child deliver even in cases of incest or rape (Not a specific quote).  Ben Carson?

Let's close with a reminder many in the United States does not give one damn about obvious cop abuse in the Black community. Not only do the vast majority of Americans not care abuse outside of their "safe" communities, I suspect there are those who relish the beatings and killings of the innocent. How about a very basic piece of evidence of my points shrouded in the legal and slush funds that derive from cops who kill blacks. If there is a killer cop solicitation online, it will quickly amass to six figures and more.

A more sad and insensitive piece of evidence manifest when young African-Americans dare speak-up for the right to be treated shy of beatings and death by cops. "Black Lives Matter" is a poignant appeal for fairness via cop interactions; it does not ask for special privilege even equal to privilege  whites receive with cop interactions. 

Of course, "White Lives Matter!" All lives actually matter, but anyone who will argue with the data clears operates from a paradigm that I call "I DO NOT CARE." Beyond not caring the message of "White Lives Matter": during periods when the data clear shows disparate treatment of a community, is factually callous and existentially fringes on racism while lying solidly in white privilege. The "Black Live Matter" activist are not asking for equal abuse of white people.  

The Black Lives protest can at times come across as an irritant when the interruptions appears as misplaced. I would offer there is no misplacement of the protest even though I resent the temporary interruptions of a speech or event. But, I find a deep degree of contempt when a conservative audience enacts an equivalent "White Lives Matter" chant to the common conservative "USA, USA, USA" refrain when challenged with a reality outside of their paradigm.

Protesters chanted "black lives matter," which was quickly met with "white lives matter" and "all lives matter" chants.
