As Trump's World Turns: Rally Chant (Abhorrent and Shameful)




Donald Trump choke
That Presidential Look?
The chief purveyor of Trump's racism and white nationalism, Steve Miller visited the Trump media outlet, Fox News, and spent 10:00 minutes spewing and responding to questions about nascent Trumpism. When Chris Wallace asked Miller about Trump's past criticism of the US government, the Trump operative went here:

"......upholding the “principles of Western civilization.”

Allow a quick back reach regarding the common white nationalism vernacular for Right-wing politicals. 

"Western civilization"

A definition:

Western culture, sometimes equated with Western civilizationWestern lifestyle or European civilization, is a term used very broadly to refer to a heritage of social norms, ethical values, traditional customs, belief systems, political systems, and specific artifacts and technologies that have some origin or ... 
Western culture - ScienceDaily
Well, that definition is a bIt white, to state it mildly. It is, the exact, sentiment and message communication operatives like Miller would deploy to advance GOP racism and right-wing white supremacy.

The 2016 night of the Republican National Convention; noted International racists Iowa's Steve King.




A startling yet unsurprising comment for the kin (excuse the pun) of white nationalism among many in conservative America. While seeking a definition of white nationalism, the phrase "white supremacist" also sat clearly on my monitor. As I followed the definition of white supremacy, guess what popped-up. The link: Merriam-Webster.



And the matter of white nationalism and Trump's attack on four non-white rookie members of the US House of representatives who happened to be women, Miller was unable to shake the ugliness his boss has put upon the world. 


While in a very diverse district in North Carolina, Trump's virtually all-white audience erupted into Trump's new slogan of "Send her back" ( a derivative of ...go back to where they came from).   


As you view what follows, know one of Trump's lies this week was his lack of fondness for this chant. He also, in another forum, called the chanters patriots. 





Another perspective on rally chants which represents the reality of Trump's choreographed ooziest chants.




No matter the spin from Miller, Trump's racist politicizing is abhorrent and shameful. 


Post-Script (considering I used the word shameful above).

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.

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: White House Lawn "Like Party", Ingraham Wall of Fame, and Red States Fact (Abortion)





It seems Trump morning included comment which couldn't even come from the mental concoction of a pre-teen. 

CNN (15 seconds)
Listen carefully and give the related CNN segment a one-minute viewing; linked here. How can any American follow the illogical lies of the nation's 4th President?  

Didn't Trump recently blast Nancy Pelosi for his exception of her on-air affect; including use of her hands?  
If you care to spend a few minutes reading about facts related to Trump's early morning lie attack, Media Matters offer the best summary, as yet. Media Matters for America, linked. Oh, let's not stop. Herewith is a quick fact check via CNN, linked.

Yes, the post-inauguration lies from Trump have to now stand well over 10,500 (verified). With record lying numbers as such one could begin to believe Trump even lies in his sleep. 

From Trump's lies to a reminder of the total commitment for Fox News to a social ideology some call whit nationalism. The phrase is a whitewash of the reality of white supremacy.  Laura Ingraham recently posted a set of images of Right-wing nutjobs she labeled "prominent citizens".  You will notice both Alex Jones, James Woods, and Candace Bergen the list.  Of significant interest and very noteworthy, Ingraham also posted one of the nation's most recognizable white supremacists on her screen feed to Fox News minions.  



That salute came at the end of a 17:26 minute RNC Convention speech I which Ingraham opened by equating, or making a weird analogy of,  Trump actions to that of a "god." 

Here is Ingraham'swall of fame via Media Matters. 

Did you read or hear about Trump's inner cabal ordering a US Navy warship named John McCain (named after the former Senators' father and grandfather...both Navy Vets to cover the name of the ship to avoid viewing by Trump? 


Let's close our run through Trumpism and US conservatism with a Twitter post of Democrat Party strategist Keith Boykin. A reminder of US conservatism and the politics which attract one-third of the US electorate. 

There is truly something horrible brewing in conservative America.

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

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.

As Trump's World Turns: Born In Germany and "Oranges"




There is something very badly wrong at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue

No, Trump's father was not born in Germany.

MSN dot com

   



All media are reporting the facts. Trump's father was born in New York City. The Bronx.

How can any person with even a modicum of a brain overlook the extent to which Trump's first thought is to speak a lie?

Wait there is another round of communication which should pule those among us who are rational.

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?

Image may contain: 2 people, text

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: "Wind doesn't blow", "Pencil-neck", "Michelle OBama"




...Yup, another Trump rally


First a look and listen to the hordes who line-up for Trump's Grand Rapids rally.

Now let's visit inside the cesspool.

Trump's audience sits with a presidential demagogue railing about our world (nothing related to policy other than slamming immigrants) while calling Democrats in Congress "sick people". Sick people? Have you ever heard of strategy related to deflection accompanied by a person with a lack of personal perception? Trump's crowd seems imbued as such. 

In another moment we find the short-sightedness of Trump and his sycophant supporters. MSNBC ratings drop? Really? How is that different from celebrating a gas price drop when prices will inevitably go up. Or, celebrating pool numbers when the same pollers could withing weeks report lowered polling numbers.
Pencil-neck?
Did the crowd partake-in  "Lock-her-up" with the reality of legal action against Trump's cabal? It seems his crowds are either reacting to crowd ques from Trump's handler's or they use "lock-her-up" as if at a football game doing the "wave". I suspect the latter as the aforementioned would surely draw attention from the media.
Remember this?



Now take a look and read about the reality of Trump current rally Lock-her-up chants as nothing more than an audience wave.

Well, actually sometimes the wave fails to develop ad it looks like this.

 

But at Trump rallies with people who very well may attend rallies to exercise their opportunity to chant "lock-her-up". The moments of chanting is comparable to this.



If you have a few minutes the psychology of the wave is an interesting study in human behavior.  A behavior with roots back to 1981 and captured via this quote from former sportscaster Joe Garagiola.

“Crescendo rising here. It’s amazing, I’ve never seen anything like this…”
-Sportscaster Joe Garagiola describing the first documented appearance of a "stadium wave" at the Oakland Alameda Coliseum on October 15, 1981.
Grab that Red MAGA cap and partake in a ritual chant. 

Alas, Trump moved to Michelle Obama. We will forego the rightful tendency to post pictures of Trump's arm-candy model prior to their marriage. It would be equally appropriate to post his wife's visit to the View at which she joined in racist birtherism. But, we will pass and simply post the Aaron Ruper tweet.

Question. While I recognize Trump's rallies are campaign visits to communities in which he has great support,  I must ask: Is there anything about the Twitter post above you find even remotely respectful, decent or "presidential?" 

Before I close, consider this as you think about our nation.
