The Big Crime Lie

Do you recall this from Trump's Gothic inauguration speech?
“the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.”
After one year in office, after the New York Times document 2140 Trump lies and after Politifact rated Trump as a liar at the plus 82% level, Trumps' information ministers and presstitutes are busy working to shape your thinking
Think Progress

Brennan Center crime data over a 29 year period.

Be very careful. The history of human kind has archive of recent national leader (dictators) who once in power turn nations into cesspools of greed, genocide, murder and the virtual death of their nations.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: When The Top Leads The Minions Follow (The Great Lie)

Image result for trump lies

When the US has a president who lives with a ready-to-go at the tip of his tongue, we get what follows on a daily basis.
GovTrack Insider
By his own standard, the President has sunk to last place with 94 bills signed into law by his 336th day in office (today). That’s 8 fewer than President George W. Bush and not even half as many as presidents Bill Clinton (209) and George H.W. Bush (242):

See the methodology for noes on Truman, Johnson, and Ford.

Established and reinforced on a daily basis.  Is there any wonder the ever-ready lie spreads down from the top. Trump's UN Ambassador, Nikki Haley)was recently the victim of a punk call and she bit like an old Catfish.

The following video is 22:00 minutes in duration.  I have posted a link for the segment which has garnered international attention.  

Why lie?  why not just say, I am not familiar with the incident of which you speak and put the caller back on his or her heals?

The Youtube video which follows:

Famous Russian pranksters Vovan & Lexus played a phone trick on the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley. Presenting themselves as The Prime-Minister of Poland they had a conversation with her that lasted for about 30 minutes. Nikky Haley was informed about the situation in Binomo - an island in the South China Sea: Putin supposedly interfered in their elections (this island doesn't exist for real). Ignorant Ambassador stated in all seriousness she was aware of the situation and confirmed Putin interfered in the elections of Binomo. Though it doesn't exist at all. Haley and the pranksters also discussed Kevin Spacey's harassment towards the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko and Trump's harassment. Vovan & Lexus are famous for their pranks with Senator McCain and Senator Graham, Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Congressman Adam Shiff, the U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, the President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, British singer Elton John and many other politicians and celebrities in Russia and the world.
Do you know Binomo?  (this island doesn't exist for real)

The Russian prank duo has caught others with their guard down. How can a credible UN Ambassador so readily fail for a prank involving a nation which doesn't exist on Earth? The question is rhetorical. The answer' it flows from the top. If the first thought wasn't to accommodate with a lie, such would not have taken place.

If you are leaving this post with your head shaking or thoughts of how did we get here, you may have interest in this Fox News segment

The Trump base (core GOP) love Trump.

And, therein lies our national shame.

Tax Plan And The GOP Facade

...the lies continue

The inarguable suckup of the 20th and 21st Centuries. Mike Pence, unleashed a stomach-curdling suckup to Donald Trump which most rational men and women would reserve for private suckling. Not the Trump style.

Various media are reporting Pence offered kissing praise of Trump every 12 seconds throughout the three-minute oral massage. If one thinks about the fact Pence never once looked a set of notes, the rational person has to acknowledge Pence is a second to none tsunami level ass kisser.

Take a look and listen, if you missed it earlier in the week.  Also, watch as Trump receives his suckling. Imagine Rome's Nero or Sadaam Hussein receiving lavished praise while gloating like an expectant father.

As is commonly the case with Trump and company, Pence's remarks were laced with lies.

Alas, Pence wasn't the only lie purveyor over the course of later last week. Trump and his daughter also provided backup chorus renditions of Trumpism.

Today marks a great win for all Americans. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act provides $5.5 trillion in tax cuts, $3.2 trillion, or nearly 60 percent, of which go to families.

12:08 PM - 20 Dec 2017 from Washington, DC

The USA TODAY effectively dealt with the $3.2 Trillion lie.   Linked.

CBS and most credible media also reported on Trump and his congressional operatives comment after the bill signing. The CBS fact check follows via an excerpt and the linked article.

A look at remarks made Wednesday and earlier about the tax plan Trump will shortly sign into law. 
PRES. TRUMP: "It's the largest tax cut in the history of our country." — remarks Wednesday.  
THE FACTS: It isn't. For months Trump has refused to recognize larger tax cuts in history, of which there have been many, or to grant that other presidents have enacted big tax cuts since Ronald Reagan in the 1980s.  
An October analysis by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget found that it would be the eighth biggest since 1918. As a percentage of the total economy, Reagan's 1981 cut is the biggest followed by the 1945 rollback of taxes that financed World War II. Trump's plan is also smaller than cuts in 1948, 1964 and 1921, and probably in other years.  
Valued at $1.5 trillion over 10 years, the plan is indeed large and expensive. But it's much smaller than originally intended. Back in the spring, it was shaping up as a $5.5 trillion package. Even then it would have only been the third largest since 1940 as a share of gross domestic product.
CBS linked.

Yes, the linked article also reached into Democrat "falsehoods" (lies).

Do you believe Americans will eventually tire of Trumps lies?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Only The Best People?

Image result for trump judicial nominations

Just weeks before the 2016 General Elections, Candidate trump was asked a question about pricing and hiring for his administration. His response: 
"I'll choose the best people for my administration."
A bit more.

We have posted two pieces today regarding Trump's utter disregard for the truth, lack of veracity and wanton lying. What you are about to witness was an example which came home to roost again this week.

Watch and listen.
When do we come to a point of recognizing federal leadership malfeasance?

If we consider a recent post from Nate Silvers 538 Blog, it appears many are recognizing Trump as a flimflam man, con artist and probably recognizing his serial lying. Linked. The following graphic has a month to month axis starting in February of this year. See link above for an interactive opportunity to view the chart.
There are actual old with results indicating a 32% (Pew Research)  and 35% ( Gallup) approval rating. 

Yes, we have a problem.

Trump Sought To Backtrack His Obama Comment (VIDEO)

When four US citizens (Embassy officials, security detail, and US Ambassador Stevens) died in the US Consulate attack in Benghazi, both President Obama and Security of State Clinton met the returning Americans in death.

Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor

After the death of four US Green Berets in Niger not only did Trump avoid mention of the deaths, he played golf upon their arrival back to their country.


Not only has Trump failed in showing any level of concern or respect for the deceased Army Special Forces, he has only initiated contact with the families of the dead after a typically disgusting response to a reporter's questions during yesterday's Rose Garden (Mitch McConnell) fiasco.

For two full weeks, Trump has avoided any mention of the deaths of four American Green Berets in the African nation of Niger. Of course, we all knew US troops were assigned to Niger, right?  Yes of course. we knew.

We can add another set of US military deaths to Trump's growing string of US troops killed in situations which seem avoidable. How is it possible the small group of Army Special Forces headed to a local village fell victim to an ISIS attack by 50 or more fighters?  Whatever happened to US INTEL, and command competency?  

Moreover, whatever happened to leadership from the Oval Office when such deaths take place. I personally recall the sad scenes of Barack Obama, and in some cases, his wife Michelle, comforting and offering national condolences to military Gold Star families. Trump has allowed two weeks to pass and seem to only have addressed the deaths when questions at today's Rose Garden visit.

“The traditional way, if you look at President Obama and other presidents, most of them didn’t make calls. A lot of them didn’t make calls,” he said. “I like to call when it’s appropriate when I think I’m able to do it.” 


Of course, we know trump resorted to his common refrain of "Obama didn't do it." 

Within seconds of his initial lie, watch as Trump offers his common backtrack. 

Is it possible the nation is acclimating to a new norm of a US President who's initial thought on all matters is to lie? Often the lie is so weak and feeble, even Trump cannot defend the lie. As you watched the linked video, did you notice Mitch McConnell standing nearby like a horse tied to a post awaiting its owner's next move?

Trump-O-Nomics (Fools Gold; Windfall For The Wealthy)

Trump-O-Nomics ......Reaganomics for the absolute ignorant 

Watch 37 seconds of Donald Trump's interview with softball interview impresario Sean Hannity.

Now spend a few minutes with an intellectual gifted financial mind who works as a show host on MSNBC. Ali Velshi dissects Trump's lie with the skill of a master craftsman.

Well, only one question remains. Are you one of the 32% of potential voters who cling to hope Trump is a credible and viable US President? 

Honesty is a key trait in any leadership position. It is without question a top line requirement in the Oval Office. 

This past June the New York Times set precedent with a direct affront to Trump's pathological lying via a well researched and crafted piece:   President Trump's Lies, the Definitive List - The New York Times.

The lie is a core component of the Trump tax plan. Whether you support Trump or do to support Trump, your Congressional representative will soon have the unenviable task of shaping Trumponomics into law. They will approach their work for to very basic lie platforms.

September 2017 (Quartz dot com)

White House tax debate has started with two outright—no other word for it—lies: wealthy don’t get a tax cut and cuts will pay for themselves
 Trumponomics is nothing more than Reaganomics on steroids.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Lies, Misinformation, Fakery

Lies, Misinformation, Fakery Bundled As "Incompetence"

If you are a High Information Voter (HIV), you really must peruse this piece from the Washington Post.

In 263 days, President Trump has made 1,318 false and misleading claims 

As of our latest update Oct. 10, 2017, or his 264th day in office, the president has made 1,318 claims over 263 days. He has averaged five claims a day, even picking up pace since the six-month mark. (Our full interactive graphic can be found here.)
The state of Trump is one of lies, misinformation, fakery accompanied by behind the scenes GOP reach back and grabs of times well past.  During last night's The Last Word, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, masterfully guided his audience through the Trump pathology of lie after lie, after lie.  

Yes, the Trump pathology.  Is it [possible Trump supporters are starting to see through his campaign rhetoric? Are they suffering a form of post-election dissonance? Are they feeling entertained? One can only hope the answer to each question is: "Yes." They are entertained without cable TV fees, but it comes with the real prospect of moving the nation back to a pre-1950s cesspool of social injustice, the risk of nuclear weapons use , indifference to national natural catastrophes, and an apparent lack of concern for our military personnel losses.  

While most will never admit to any level of "Trump concern", there is evidence of growing remorse from Trump's base. Just after the 2016 General elections, I read a social media comment which seemed to chide voters about the apparent or claimed, the success of a  "rural vote" election win. Yes, that ever-present rural vote (a euphemism) is time-worn and wrought with danger. We have suffered from the GOP rural vote" in our recent past.  It seems we may be doomed to relive that past with the prospect of worse via Trump.  

Th following graphic is noteworthy for a number of reasons, the least of which is the message it imparts. It shows growing dissatisfaction with Trump's leadership after the 2016 General elections. The poll is particularly germane as it was conducted over a four week period among potential respondents who are considered "rural."

It is hard to imagine talk of seven more years of Trump if the poll is accurate. But, let's not end with the chart; let's visit with the Reuters's piece and the story of a 70 year old retired banker who, joined many other high end Baby Boomers in their dream of "taking their country back." Reuters linked.

That "rural" vote. StumbleUpon

Trump Lies: I Have The Votes To Repeal Obamacare

Image result for what is it when people don't mind someone lying to them

My normal practice is to not post MSNBC segments from Hardball, Chris Matthews. Well, as is commonly the case these days, Donald Trump has forced a change in my behavior as the nation witnesses the daily meandering incompetence of a president who lies more than he consumes his favorite drink (Coca-Cola).

During yesterday's Hardball show Matthews straight-up dealt with trump lies and for the first time Matthews spoke openly about the obvious: Trump has issues which should have precluded his inauguration to the US Presidency

The first segment is a bit long, but recognize we are dealing with US history never before experienced. If we are not diligent in pursuing the truth and recognizing Trump for what he is we run the risk of following the man into world oblivion.

MSNBC Hardball with Chris Matthews

No rational American should be at all alarmed by the graphic which follows. Trump is a pathological liar whose first thought seems to be to lie. Politifact performs running analysis of Trump statements. The man lied over 381 times from a total of 455 statements.

If you want details regarding the Politifact Trump file, here is the site link. The link is highly recommended viewing.

When a person lies as much as trump, it is, without question, a sign he disrespects any potential listener.  Imagine foreign leaders and citizens of other countries who listen to his manifest lies and misrepresentations. 

Are you one of the millions across the nation who doesn't mind being lied to on a daily basis?

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Trump "The Shame"

Image result for trump shameless The shame!

How about a quick video laced reminder of exactly what the nation placed in the White House. While Trump is doing all he can to keep his Russia/Putin troubles out of the media, his desperation is only surpassed by the level of contempt he imparts to rational Americans.

Let's start with a quick exhibition of why he should seriously avoid issues which require any level of cognitive reliance on reality.  

ObamaCare for 17 years?  Really.

Seventeen years?

Now for the nascent White House communications chief who should more have the title of Chief Derriere Cleaner

Scaramucci shows extraordinary skills at derriere cleansing.

Football through a tire?

Trump continues his strong preference for entertaining crowds. Why not; he is the supreme carnival barker shelling out pure lies to get you to purchase a ticket to go in the carnival tent. Ever notice after you realize you have been ripped-off and the freak in the tent is laden with false props and makeup and isn't a real Snake woman, you run back outside to retrieve your money...and he is gone. Yes, the life of the carnival barker.

In Ohio and clear signs of a diseased mind selling snake oil.

While among the horde of supporters, Trump declared himself the most presidential of presidents in US History (other than Abe Lincoln).

The man has to be a psychiatrist and psychologist dream case.  

If a person has to go before a supportive audience and declares himself
best of all, it shows deep rooted inadequacy with a need for support for sycophants.

After a night of what might have included a few minutes of sleep, what does the erratic one do?  He jumps on his cell phone and tweets out an anti LGBTQ reversal of Barack Obama's "right to serve openly policy."   

How about the sudden LGBTQ shift. I suggest it is a smokescreen to distract from his current sets of Administration killing woes.

The man is as sad a carnival barker as we have witnessed over the course of our lives.

Thank you to the LGBT community! I will fight for you while Hillary brings in more people that will threaten your freedoms and beliefs.

CNN June 2016
"Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists into our country and who suppress women, gays and anyone else who doesn't share their views or values," Trump said, criticizing Clinton's call for the U.S. to accept more Syrian refugees. 
"She can't have it both ways. She can't claim to be supportive of these communities while trying to increase the number of people coming in who want to oppress these same communities," he added. 
Clinton is widely supported by the LGBT community and supports policies that would expand civil rights protections. She expressed solidarity with the community during a speech Monday in Cleveland. 
"I want to say this to all the LGBT people grieving today in Florida and across our country," she said. "You have millions of allies who will always have your back. And I am one of them."

Crooks & Liars and what I call he didn't go there."

If you can overlook the shame, it really doesn't bode well for your psyche Celebrity or not, Trump has mental issues.

But let's revisit yesterday's Rose Garden Presser.  Did you see Trump lie in response to a question with immediate contrary information offered by the Romanian President?

If you ave a few more minutes, follow this AM Joy, MSNBC, guest and his comment bout Trump...and his degraded state of mind.

If you believe anything which emanates from Trump's mouth or the mouths of his press staff and surrogates, you are either suffering from severe levels of gullible or, worse yet, you do not mind being fed a steady diet of lies.


Trump Talking Head Insults Humankind: "Trump is Not A Liar"

Image may contain: 1 person, text

Trump and his inner core mind-shapers sent a "presstitute" to the White House presser conference late week with a message: Trump is not a liar. Well, Tel me I am handsome; I will get a momentary shot of dopamine. Tell me I am wealthy; My first thought would be "I wish" while knowing you are misinformed or lying to me. Tell me Donald Trump is "not a liar" you have gone overboard with an attempt to mind shape or feed fodder to sycophant supporters while the world knows differently. Every utterance from Trump's mouth should first be considered a lie long ith the prospect 15% of the words may have a degree of truth.

A number of social media sources have posted articles or comment about Trump's lying. Buzzfeed's version is linked, here. Politifact's Trump file includes a graphic which shows Trump lies (In some form) far more than he speaks the truth: here. Interesting and informative Politico piece regarding Trumps lying.

While this piece came to be base don the Meme atop the piece, I can not help but end with a couple of snippets from Trump's Rose Garden comments of yesterday. He still hasn't learned he can not go on camera and lie about his just completed meeting with international leaders. 

Donald Trump is woefully ill-prepared for the office of the US Presidency. 

I really have to add this 52-second snippet from this morning's AM Joy Show on MSNBC.
