As Trump's World Turns: Charlottesville, Tucker Carlson, Trump In El Paso



Two years ago today, white supremacists perpetrated mayhem and murder in the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia.  Shortly thereafter Trump (when pressed) commented that the event and the day were shared by 'fine people on both sides". 

Leadership?

True leadership. How does a true leader lead in times of horrific experienced for her/his constituents? The true leader shows empathy, sympathy and offers a personal touch; which could mean much to those who suffer.

The Buffoon, narcissistic camera hound and his wife show exactly the core of the current GOP and US conservative mindset. The baby's parents are dead Shot by a right-wing racist who seemed to clone Trump's "invasion" moniker for brown people who are seeking a better life in the United States.  The photo opportunity was yet another example of the existential reality of Trumpism. 

If you have time and respect the sanctity and special elevation of the US Presidency, you have to sit through this MSNBC segment.  The manner of speech is as critical as a presidents judgment. We have almost three years of empirical evidence Trump has zero judgment.  Watch and listen as Chris Hayes shows us the full measure of Trump's inept mental processes (as exemplified via speech). 
A visit over on Fox News finds another evening host who suddenly announced a "vacation." 
Does Fox News management and Ruppert Murdoch so disrespect their viewers they practice disciplinary "vacation" closeting when a host shows the true core values of the organization? Is sending a host on an unplanned "vacation" a mere band-aid and hand-slap? would termination serve a better purpose? Alas, a question for credible media with viewers who might find utter racism and defense of racism a "deplorable act ".

Let's take another look (and listen). 


"Deplorable?"

James Alex Fields, Jr August 12, 2017


And David Duke on August 12, 2017, put it into words.


If you are familiar with professional sports and television broadcast, you know the term "color commentator".  While the use of the term, regarding David Duke's validation and of Trump, also carries a nagging pun (hence "color"), I cannot find a better metaphorical analogy.  

Why should we ask should Fox management even respond with an "Immediate vacation"?  We suspect to slow the trickle of advertisers, more so than an attack of consciousness. 

On the anniversary day of Charlottesville, we find Fox News's Tucker Carlson on immediate vacation and we find an image of Trump and his wife with a baby with deceased via an American terrorist influenced by Trump's incessant oratory and hate speech.

As Trump's World Turns: When The Polls Don't LIe; FIre The Pollsters







Image result for abc news trump

Watch at the 1:00-minute mark. Trump with ABC's George Stephanopoulos. After Trump's internal pollings numbers were leak showing he is training Joe Biden in all states, Trump plays the "Lie Card" Actually, he went off the record in the interviews an ordered a call to someone on his tea with a request for polling numbers. You will notice the cameras do not return to the limo interview. Or, is his behavior best represented by the word delusional?" 
"I don't believe those polls. There's no way [former Vice President Joe Biden] beats me in Texas," Trump told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos on Tuesday during an exclusive interview. "No, my polls show that I'm winning everywhere."
ABC's piece report Trump continued with his diatribe response to the point of using the "T" word (truth). There isn't a person in industrialized Earth who doesn't know that Trump is absent the ability, to tell the truth. (Washington Post April 2019)
"Nobody showed you those polls because those polls don't exist, George. Those polls don't exist. I'm losing in 15 out of 17 states? Those polls don't exist," Trump said. "I just was given a meeting with my pollster who I frankly don't even believe in pollsters if you want to know the truth, you just run a campaign and whatever it is, it is, but I just had a meeting with somebody that's a pollster and I'm winning everywhere, so I don't know what you're talking about."



On June 10th, 2019 The New York Times reported Trump knew was formed of the polling data and instructed his staff to deny the numbers.  

After working through the proceeding, you have to know what comes next.  Trump fired the pollsters. Crooks And Liars.

US Conservatism: The Ugly, The Shameful , And The Liar





We don't often write about matters of Trump's wife on this page. As Trump and his cabal and family bring their UK visit to a close, I have noticed the anticipated reveling about the "beauty and poise" of Trump's wife. While I won't speak of the long record of his wife's prior to their marriage. I will, however, use a Twitter post to remind of Melania Trump the Birther.
______________

Pier sMorgan questioned Trump about America's need for the AR-15 armed citizens.  Wouldnt you think Truno would have avoided the use of the word "entertainment?" 

Talking Point Memo published 5 key moments from Trump's 30-minute interview. Linked.  Will the lies ever cease?  A rhetorical question.

Trump's comment about the  United Kingdom's as America's largest trading partner?

On April 27, 2019, The Washington Post updated its running Trump "lie count".
In 828 days, President
Trump has made 10,111
false or misleading claims
The Fact Checker’s ongoing database of the false or misleading claims made by President Trump since assuming office.
See WAPO article for an interactive graphic. Linked, here.


Of course, one and a half months past the end of April, we can only assume Trump's "lie count"will reach 11,000 by years end.

The need to further illustrate Trump's pathological state of lying probably isn't necessary,, yet it isn't often we can share report of his laying lies on foreign soil.  CNN's Don Lemon offered a 'facts first" with Trump as the central character.

Grannie brandished her gun

Let's skip down to the Great State of Mississippi.

Ruby Nell Howell was arrested Tuesday, the Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Office said.

It seems someone's grandmother has been arrested and charged with a gun-related misdemeanor.  Do you recognize her?  Do you from time to time catch national news?  Or do you live in Starkville Mississippi?  

Hint.  


Oh yes, black people and a granny with a gun.  Do you suspect the elderly white woman sought firearm protect because she was attacked and fear for her life?   

If you answered "no" to any of the questions, here is the back story.  Linked via Longroom dot com.

The closet racist who didn't live in a closet

We intended to end this piece at this point. well, as is frequently the case with conservative America another racist has raised her head, acted on her racism and subsequently lost her job. The segment is a bit long due to CNN's frequently practice of offering a dialog between the network's host and o camera guests. 



Apparently, the teacher has been employed by the school district since 1998. Often employees with long employment histories have work records which reflect on the character of the employee (good, bad or neutral). Georgia Clark has a history which indicates past negligence for her district managers. She is a clear racist and should have been relieved of working with children many years ago. Star-Telegram linked (short) video here. The Star-Telegram piece, here (must read).

If you visited the Star-Telegram piece you read through word after the word which thoroughly illustrated the typical US racist.  Typical, yes, but it isn't often we can witness and read about the level to which such people ooze around in the darkness of social media while satisfying an inner-core need for sycophancy.

If you didn't read the Star-Telegram piece, her is an excerpt of how Clark managed her social interactions with children.
Clark was suspended without pay and reassigned in 2013 after referring to students at Western Hills High School as “Little Mexico” and “white bread.” 
During the 2013-14 school year, Clark worked at Western Hills High School as a reading teacher, but was recommended for termination by a review committee after she was accused of using racist language toward students. She was kept by the district after the United Educators Associationhelped her find a resolution with the district, the records state.  
Eighteen student witnesses made statements in that case. A co-worker on campus also told the district Clark used racist language when referring to students. That internal review began Nov. 7, 2013, and closed on Jan. 3, 2014. 
In November 2013, Clark was accused of calling a group of Hispanic students “Little Mexico.” She also reportedly called a Caucasian student “white bread,” and separated the class by race, according to the reports. 
“The Mexicans on one side and the white and black people on another side,” one student told the district’s Office of Professional Standards in 2013. “She had told the Mexicans that (they’re) Mexico and that the white and blacks are America.”
What a shame, but a surprise? No!

As Trump's World Turns: Britain, Protesters Or Lack Of Protesters





Before reading beyond the title above, know the claim of "no protesters" is a lie.

No, this post isn't about attire. However.....

Image may contain: 3 people, people smiling, people standing and suit

It is about phantom protesters. somehow media is full on reports of protesters against Trump and his cabal as they visit England. But for some reason, Trump is stating he hasn't seen any protesters. Have we witnessed yet another addition to Trump's growing number of lies thus reachiing10,500 lies during his three years in office?

London part of trip is going really well. The Queen and the entire Royal family have been fantastic. The relationship with the United Kingdom is very strong. Tremendous crowds of wellwishers and people that love our Country. Haven’t seen any protests yet, but I’m sure the....
Seriously? Unseen protests may have much to do with helicopter flights to the Palace and strategic avoidance of the streets of London. Imagine anyone gullible enough to believe the twist of the tweet. Of course,e he has seen any protesters.

Video is a powerful communications tools.



How could he miss the following picture as his motorcade is very visible in the background?



Well if this is his reference, I don't see any protesters either.  But notice what else is absent fort he image. If you are slow today, notice the number of revelers or well-wishers

The New York Post also ran a piece regarding Trump's reception via the citizens of England. Linked here.

The BBC


Time


Oh yes, there were protesters and despite The Trump cabal and Fox News's efforts to offer up supportive crowds, the number of Englanders unhappy about the state of the current US President was quite noticeable.

Protest against U.S. President Donald Trump in London

Trafalgar Square, London, Britain, June 4, 2019.

Is there a question of respect for a president who shows no respect. 
As was in the linked piece via the New York Post, some spoken openly about their contempt for the US President.

Excerpt
“A state visit is an honor, and we don’t think that this president deserves an honor,” UK Shadow Foreign Secretary Emily Thornberry said on BBC’s “Today” radio show Tuesday. “He is a sexual predator, he is a racist, and it’s right to say that. And I think we need to think about when is it that our country got so scared. Why can’t we start saying things as they are?” 
She added, “We’ve seen the way in which this current British government have tried to deal with Donald Trump, by fawning all over him, holding his hand, and what respect have we got as a result of it?
Well, I believe that somewhat sums it up.  

Question: Do you recall similar protest as any other US president visited  Britain?

As Trump's World Turns: Barr Vs Mueller





If you are an average reader or one who follows international current events, you know a bit about the existential reality of dictators or the ultimate authoritarian leader. I am speaking of world despots and decisions like Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Haiti's François "Papa Doc" Duvalier, Jong Un (and his predecessor family), Putin (although somewhat disguised via a faulty political system), and you may also see tendencies in Trump. If you fail to watch and consider the various political maneuvers and occasional verbiage from Trump, you won't find what follows very appealing.

Question:  What would be the prototypical legal system and backdrop support for any an all dictators? Rhetorical question, correct?  There would be no actual viable legal system or the system would sit as a mere Cart Blanche wing of the leader. Do you believe Jong Un has a legal system which strives for equal justice for all North Koreans  How about Putin's Russia? Any student of history knows how Hitler's Cart Blanche system worked as a facilitator of his politics and genocide. I don't even recall if the murderous Pol Pot was propped up by a legal system. You have to now know where I am leading you.

Trump's Justice Department is showing signs of rivaling like regimes across the span of recent international history. Of specific concern is his current hand-picked (after job application memo) Attorney General Barr.  A few months ago you probably saw Barr walkout to a microphone and proclaim the Special Counsel Report as a document which exonerated Trump of any election wrongdoing.  You knew as did we all that Barr was lying. Within days Mueller wrote and sent a memo to Barr with a caution about the manner in which he, Barr, misrepresented the Report findings and verbiage.   

With Mueller's scheduled presser today, any suspicion of Barr as a legal system stooge and operative has been borne out and highlighted.  Since you may have missed Mueller's nine minutes on camera, you may find it worthwhile to seek the text of his comments.  We want you to view a CNN video segment of how Barr's previous statements about the report compared against Mueller's comments today.

As Trump's World Turns: A Right-Wing King Performed




Image may contain: 1 person

Please excuse the following quick digression.

          Image may contain: 1 person, text

As you view the following image, do you experience thoughts of a degree of planning of a pending event? Carefully consider your thought response as to indicate you don't see planning could be an indication of either something missing in your gray matter or a simple state of conservative obtuse.

No photo description available.

What follows offers the perfect opportunity across the full breadth of Trumpism to view how many across the globe must have begrudgingly viewed many failed dictators and despots. While it is sad the 46.9 percent of eligible voters in 2016 didn't cast a vote for President of the United States, it is utterly tragic the caricature of our US despot.

If you want the back story on the three images posted above (specifically the third image), read on. 

Under the guise of an infrastructure meeting, Trump and his cabal drew members of Congress and the opposition party Democrats to the White House for an obviously staged carnival spectacle, of course, you shouldn't be surprised as you may have helped elect the nation's first carnival president.  While delivering many more than 10,000 verifiable lies since taking office, Trump and his communications network, Fox News, delivers frequent examples of staged reality show-like events.  
A wrtier for Occupy Democarts summed up the Trump drama as such. he following ha sbeen reproted here for the "We're IN! 100% ALL IN!" Facebook page.
"So in review, Trump, Pelosi and Schumer agreed to meet today to discuss INFRASTRUCTURE. But Trump said he heard from someone that “Nancy” just minutes before the meeting, said Trump was involved in a cover-up..Trump then said sorry, no dice. I can’t discuss infrastructure with anybody who would say such a mean, nasty lie about me, so he *spontaneously* walked out to the Rose Garden to address the public, where someone had *spontaneously* attached this placard to the podium, which miraculously, and also no doubt *spontaneously* mirrored Trumps very inaccurate term “18 Angry Democrats.”
.This man is certifiably batshit, my friends. I’m beginning to think impeachment is too good for him. They choreographed this WHOLE goddamn thing, long before he heard what Speaker Pelosi said, and probably even before the infrastructure meeting was agreed to."
~ Bruce Lindner

Speaking of guises, this post wouldn't be complete with visiting another of conservative America's daily lies and misrepresentations regarding their messiah. Apparently, someone on a mission took an aerial view of the 1969 Woodstock Music Festival in upstate New York and passed it off as an image of a recent Trump rally crowd. 

Well, Snopes responded to the image and its false representation as such: linked

We've lived through the crowd thing before.  Within days of Trump's inauguration, Sean Spicer was dispatched to the White House Briefing room to perform as such.



From Snopes and Trump crowd issues to an admitted White House liar. 


Huckabee Sanders "...Pelosi has lost control of her party". 
Sanders Part Deux.  It is, important to consider this before moving forward.


From late April to Sanders today on the White House Lawn. After yesterday's Trump tantrum, the White House dispatched its Number two presstitute to answer questions from yelling White House reporters.  Sanders addressed what seemed an obviously planned meeting walkout via Trump

Oh....... and that makes it the truth. Lest we remind of over 10,000 validates lies I threw years in office. Lear we forget this mouthpiece has admitted to the Special Counsel is position requirements.

Lest we forget Trump has pulled a walkout before after offering candy to start a meeting. And, never forget the expensive and seemingly planned Pence walkout from an Indianapolis professional football game National Anthem protest. Someone in the Trump cabal believes walkouts are the thing to do to entertain Trump's base.
