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

Please excuse the following quick digression.

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."

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.

As Trump's World Turns: Jokes? Shooting Immigrants? White Power Sign?





 Image result for jokes

Joking? Watch a recent broadcast segment from MSNBC" Jokes?" No, the segment isn't laced with funny items from the Trump carnival show. Give the video a watch ......and think of how leadership impacts people.

MSNBC's The Last Word w/Lawrence O'Donnell



It was a joke.

Let's take "joke" to another level and another arena.

First this... 

Image result for White power sign  If you are one who refuses to accept the undercurrents of US racism and white supremacy, recognize the ideology has its own hand gesture.

Image result for White power sign  After comments from media about the flash, her husband spoke of the ethnicity of this woman (Mexican and Jewish). Really? Well, Clarence Thomas is a black American and Trump adviser Steve Miller is Jewish. Enough said.

And this week there is this flash during a broadcast of a Chicago Cubs Baseball game.

Image result for White power sign

Well, a Cubs fan allowed his inner core beliefs and vision of what supremacy overshadow his common sense and judgment. After being reported to have been banned form Cubs games, he spoke. CBS Link, here.   

Inner core judgment? Joke? Think about the Lawrence O'Donnell segment at the top of this piece.  People laughed, smiled and relished the moment at public lynchings of black people during the decades of Jim Crow. 


Let's end with a reminder from Business Insider: Since Trump, hate crimes have increased by 226 percent.

As Trump's World Turns: "The People of France"




Did Trump ever actually speak as such about the Americans who live in Puerto Rico after the hurricanes hit the US territory?

How about his talk with the "President of the Virgin Islands"?

As Trump's World Turns; Puerto Rico "That County"




Earlier today, I saw an introduced to a segment on MSNBC with a guest who serves in Trumps Communications Department. Yes, of course, I turned the channel. I really don't take to carnival barking and I sure don't make a habit of listening to documented and proven liars. The words just slide off my gray matter like a Slinky (tm)  of an oiled set of stairs.


The guest was Hogan Gidley as a guest on Hallie Jackson's morning show. As I look back, maybe I should have sat through the segment. Gidley joined trump in subliminal messaging regarding the unincorporated territory of Puerto Rico.

The following segment is 3:21 minutes long. The broadcast segment is, in fact, a moment in US history as Gidley referred to Puerto Rico as "that country" twice in the three minutes.


Did I mention Gidley followed Trump's leadership?

The Raw Story also ran a piece on Gidley's remarks.


Is it possible to avoid the perception of racism and white nationalism from the White House? If you can get past the Puerto Rico comments via Trump and his spox, you should probably seek an examination and possible medication for bigotry.  Bigotry is in the racist DNA chain. You don't want the disease to metastasized to full-blown racists.

Trump's and Gidley's remarks are a far greater matter than a Freudian Slip.  We have a mindset elected into the US Presidency.

As Trump's World Turns: Quick Hit (Congressman Schiff And "AOC Sucks")




Congressman Adam Schiff, who spent two years knowingly and unlawfully lying and leaking, should be forced to resign from Congress!

How pathetic actually?  A few days after the Mueller/Barr release of the nation's 45th president from any culpability in working with Russians to win an election,  Trump goes full bore into the insane.   And of course, his Congressional supporters join him in scuttle-butt which will never take place. Adam Schiff, D-CA) will not resign.

Speaking of Adam Schiff and his response to Trump (and his GOP sycophant members of Congress) there is little point in working to defend purveyors of Russian influence in the US. Watch as one of CNN's contributors (Staged partisan battle participants) mumbles into rational oblivion trying to defend Donald Trump's son. The following CNN segment relates to Junior's attack on newly elected New York Congresswoman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As Trump's World Turns: Trump, CPAC, And The Song Remains The Same





In February 2018, Trump peppered his sycophant CPAC audience with a dose of celebrity very much outside the realm of reality when one considers a US President. "bald spot moment."


Yes, believe it.

After a year of Trump TV via the White House and an accumulation of an additional 5,000 lies and at least four major cabinets "resignations (or terminations), Trump again took the stage at the annual conservative oozfest.  Let's take a few peeps at his tow hour plus performance. 

Since I interjected Trump Administration departures, here is a link to a February 28, 2019, New York Times piece about the unprecedented number of positions vacated under Trump.  In 2018, the sings of a sick organization manifest with these departures: CBS.


Now for a glimpse at CPAC.  (Brief digression:  To the person (visitor) who visits the page and leaves comments exhorting more writing vs. making my point via video and images. When I consider Trump and CPAC, I'd rather take a seat in front of my freezer, open the door and watch experience the joy of watch water freeze to ice. If you know your physics, my seat and viewing would be a major waste as ice freezing with an open door is impossible. Nonetheless a far more productive undertaking than sitting or even 30 minutes of Trump at CPAC.) 

Trump speaking at CPAC...  No words


How embarrassing and shameful to see an adult and the nation's top elected official stoop to such silly antics. Check out the image below.

The Atlantic best captured the CPAC cesspool and Trump's clown show. The AtlanticThe 7 Most Bewildering Moments From Trump’s CPAC Speech

How about a US president who spends a moderate amount of his 122-minute performance insulting a former Attorney General he used to prop-up his early campaign. Then Senator Jeff Sessions was the first member of Congress to offer copious support for Trump. 

Please excuse the profanity. Credible and respectful US Presidents don't come to a podium and sprinkle profane language throughout their message.



North Korea?  After this regarding Otto Wambier's comatose return to the US  and his death...  



...Trump goes here at CPAC.



Of course, there was much more but I abide by my longstanding policy of only scant comments about CPAC.

Without understanding how VOX could keep Trump's most bizarre CPAC moments to seven, the piece is worth a quick read.

The AP also ran a piece about the veracity of Trump's visit to the 2019 oozfest. 

Let's close with these.

It is so easy to dupe the uninformed who have allowed themselves to fall into deep sycophancy.
