As Trumps World Turns: Junior Attacks CNN's Anderson Cooper (VIDEO)

What follows via video is a must view

What follows is a stark indictment of how our minds are being fed pure unadulterated garbage for the right. That garbage reaches a state of utter feces when the initiators of efforts to shape-our-minds comments from Trump's inner-circle.

The Twitter embed which follows is a Donald Trump Jr. initiated an attack against CNN host Anderson Cooper.  A duly noted aspect of the attack is a particular response from a Trump worshipper. The commenter commented regarding Cooper's sexuality off the back of Trump Jr.'s utter lie.

Watch as a professional journalist and very decent human being Cooper, responds to the Trump sleaze.
What you just viewed is endemic of how the Trumps go about world shape a reality more suited (and facilitating) for their way of life. We know Donald Trump has committed over 5,000 documented lies since taking the Oval Office less than 2 years ago. He is a pathological liar his first thought seems to offer the public a lie. 

While Propaganda and mind-shaping are key Trump cabal tools, shouldn't we as a nation live with an expect better.

An Unpopular Reality: US Racism

We will start this post with a reminder of how some people deal in race and promulgate utter racism. The recent professional tennis Open loss for Serena Williams is for another post. What follows is yet another example of manifest racism with obvious origins in nefarious, deviate example conservative minds.

As you know Serena Williams loss her Finals match to Haitian/Japanese Naomi Osaka. Well, have a look at what is not very different than many pics of Brack Obam and his family as he served as the nation's 44th President.

Ugly depiction eh?

Well, allow for a bit more ugly straight out of conservative America.

Trumpites: Swap Out The Crowd; Recall 2016 Crowd Anger

Watch as your president's mind-shapers swap-out people placed behind Trump. People who do not appear enthused about Trump's oratory. 

Have you ever seen anything like the swap out during a speech by a US President? Do we need to offer more validating evidence Trump and his cabal are about the show while any substance is totally absent? You will notice the supposed attractive women replace average Joe types (one wearing a Trump red cap). Also watch the woman immediately took-up the hand clap expectation. How crass and carnival?
Watch another version. You simply must watch the video in Choi's Twitter thread.
It is all about the show.  Of particular interest and an indication of desperation, the swap out took place in the heart of Trump's oral diarrhea.  

The young high school student who was removed may have been discovered wearing a stick-on tag showing affection for democratic socialist views.

Tyler Linfesty wearing the Democratic Socialists of America Rose.

Maybe Mr. Linfsty was reacting to this part of Trump's oratory. He actually offered his audience the prospect of guilt if he is impeached

From another perspective, we have Trump training around red states delivering nothing more than reality TV threats and comments in supposedly damaging for GOP candidates. All the while lacing NFL kneelers into his oratory. How about a reveler who may very well hate the NFL Players who protest police brutality in their communities, yet she used the US Flag to blow and wipe her nose.

If you have a few more minutes (very few). watch a compilation of Trump supporters who would never receive a swap out.  These are people who Hillary Clinton appropriately called "deplorable (s)". 

Ugly, eh?

Parkland Shooting Victim's Father Refused A Handshake From Trumps Kavanaugh

Fred Guttenberg, a gun reform advocate who lost his daughter in the Parkland shooting. Attempts to shake the hand of Trump's Supreme Court nominee. Wouldn't you know he refused to shake the hand of a man who lost his daughter to senseless gun violence?

Guttenberg Tweeted:

“Just walked up to Judge Kavanaugh as morning session ended. Put out my hand to introduce myself as Jaime Guttenberg’s dad. He pulled his hand back, turned his back to me and walked away. I guess he did not want to deal with the reality of gun violence."
Image may contain: 9 people, suit

The Daily Beast published the following 23-second video. Notice the contemptuous look on Kavanaugh's face.

As an African-American, I can not express how many times I have seen that very look from many across the course of my life.

How insensitive and callous...typically conservative.

As Trump's World Turns: The Art of the Lie And Defense Of Two Allies

Is there any wonder Trump would draw four Pinocchios from the Washinton Post fact-finders?  If you are thinking, "yes" quite a surprise, take a few minutes to see how 45 manages his life as President of the United States.

The world awakened to the daily diarrhea of Trump Tweets.  From comment about Asad to an FBI Probe to an example of banana republic justice system tampering akin to that of Putin's Russia.  Take a read of pure and unadulterated defense of the indefensible.  In one case, a US congressman's charged with insider trading (of which there are audio tape and video documentation). Another case involces a California congressman who has practically pleaded guilty via shifting total blame for campaign funds abuse to his wife. 

Two long running, Obama era, investigations of two very popular Republican Congressmen were brought to a well publicized charge, just ahead of the Mid-Terms, by the Jeff Sessions Justice Department. Two easy wins now in doubt because there is not enough time. Good job Jeff......
Trump offers-up a defense which includes the reality the two potential felons were early su[p[prters, as well as bemoaning the potential loss of two safe Congressional seats. Actually, there is no way the New York state seat will be lost, and I personally doubt Duncan's seat, if left vacant, will be won by a Democrat. Nonetheless, the sleepless and frightened Trump places politics well beyond the law.  The nation's 45th President opts for attacking Jeff Sessions, via the use of two blatantly shameful Republicans for sake of tickling his base.
Aol via Reuters offers a quick read summary of the charges against the two members of Congress Trump has used as a tool against his Attorney General.

Trump accuses Sessions of hurting U.S. Republican congressional races


In Aug. 8, Congressman Christopher Collins, a Republican who was candidate Trump's first supporter in the House, was charged with participating in an insider trading scheme involving an Australian biotechnology company on whose board he served. Collins has denied wrongdoing but will not seek re-election. 
Despite Trump's claim that both investigations began under Democratic President Barack Obama, Collins was charged over trades in June 2017 - nearly six months after Trump took office. 
On Aug. 23, Republican Representative Duncan Hunter was indicted on charges that he and his wife used hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign funds to pay for vacations, video games and other personal expenses and filed false campaign finance reports, federal officials said.
End AOL excerpt

There once was a time in the US when actions such as the defense of potential felons from a sitting US President was unheard of.   

Oh, times they are a changing.

Trump's GOP And Ryan Super PAC Malfeasance

Image may contain: one or more people and text

As polling goes, you might recall a few weeks ago Trump's White House Press Secretary openly commented about Trump's support in the black community at 36 percent. It is important to note, the data shows African-American respondents yielded approval at the level of over one-third supporting Trump. My suspicion of the comment was validated when I found which pollster Sanders referenced. Also, note (hypothetically and for sake of making a point) a 36 approval percent response could also mean of the black respondents 2.16 out of 6 approval; if the data is even accurate and honest.

It took less than ten minutes to locate the poll Huckabee Sanders quoted. She quoted Rassmussen. well, that answered that.  Take a look at how Nate Silver's 538 Blog rates Rassmussen on a biased scale

A much more reliable shows Trump approval in the Black community an utter modicum of Rasmussen's results.  The ABC/ Washington Post Poll.  The Week Magzine published a piece with links tot he poll:  poll by The Washington Post and ABC News.

Rassmussen (heavy Red lean) or ABC/Washington Post (Slight Blue lean)? 

But let's move away from polling for a bit. another political dynamic has manifest, and it is utterly disgusting and pathetic.

With polling numbers as shown above, is there any wonder the GOP is resorting to what can only be called underhanded tactics to win elections? The GOP has a history of dirty tricks politics, it has a history of voter suppression, and possibly regarding cases of voter ID fraud on election day than Democrats, but the current news regarding a Paul Ryan linked Super-PAC and the 2018 mid-terms is unbelievable.

What follows is six-plus minutes of a new phenomenon in GOP politics.

Florida's Rick Scott: Lie to Win

Says Sen. Bill Nelson "voted for higher taxes" 349 times.
— Rick Scott on Wednesday, June 13th, 2018 in an ad

Rick Scott, soon to be former governor of Florida and candidate for the US Senate, is little more than a state level Donald Trump.  Granted Scott may not have a cabal of apparent criminals and perpetrators of fraud at his side or on call, but his use of the lie for politicking tracks right along with Trump.

Scott published via Tweet a lie about Bill Nelson's voting record via the common use of taxes by the GOP to win elections. the tweet is an over-the-top lie according to Politifacts.

You may follow Scott's latest campaign lie via the Politifact link, here.

A Liberal's Perspective On Trump's Inauguration Pledges

Obama Vs  Trump Inauguration

Image result for trump inauguration vs obama inauguration

Is it necessary to identify which image associates with Obama or Trump's inauguration?

Once passed the comparisons, let's take a (Liberal) peep at inauguration pledge amounts. Trump's FEC filing (pdf) shows total pledges just shy of $107 million. Obamas 2009 filing reflected a record $53 million which was double the previous record Of George W. Bush at $42 million. 

Pledge Digression:Trump's Inaugural Committee Paid $26 Million to Firm of First Lady's

Days after the inauguration political observers and television news show hosts (other than hosts employed by Fox News) questioned the historic pledge amount. Some TV hosts even questioned inauguration expenditures in light of the scarcity of Trump's inauguration festivities (entertainers, events et al). Questions of expenditures faded like Trump campaign promises, but concerns about the historic pledge amount have lingered for almost two years.

Is it possible we have answers about the $107 million pledges coming to the light of public scrutiny? Last nights The Rachel Maddow Show offered an MSNBC and Maddow perspective based on information oozing out of Trump's News periphery. Linked here.

If you visited the Maddow (four-minute) link regarding Trump's inauguration pledges, you might find the following link even more intriguing. Apparently, Special Counsel Mueller has yet another plea agreement conviction in the winds.

And, a bit more on Patten: linked here.  Crooks and fraud's et al.

All things considered and with the reality of conservative Americans indifference to caring, more rational Americans should stand firmly behind the Mueller Investigations. Trump is as guilty as his actions seem to indicate Have you ever seen a person act as guilty as Trump?

Think long and hard, but recognize you will not find a US President in your recall if you find anyone who acts as guilty.

As Trump's World Turns; "Zero" Increase For Federal Employees; Trump's Disapproval At 60%

 Image may contain: 1 person
"I have determined that for 2019, both across the board pay increases and locality pay increases will be set at zero."
Imagine an almost billionaire along with a Congress of predominant millionaires with the prospect of an anvil of a pay increase for federal workers at their whim. Now consider that same set of US politicians not long ago passed and signed a major tax cut for the nations most wealthy taxpayers while using the same legislation to sneak middle class and lower income tax hits on other Americans. 


Millionaires on average will get an extra $69,660 boost. Those with less than $10,000 will get an extra $10 to play with. 
The percentage change also skews upward, with the best benefits accruing to the $500,000 to $1 million bracket. The $50,000-to-$75,000 bracket sees a 1.6% benefit.
Things change however once 2025 rolls around. If no change is made, what were tax cuts will become tax hikes, even relative to current law.
Another look via Time

Image result for who benefited from the trump tax cuts

While the charts and the reality of Trump's "zero," remark are now folded into US History, the sad reality isn't mitigated in any manner. 

And last night Trump laid another lie-egg on his audience.

I distinctly recall reading Paul Ryan's comments regarding "entitlement" programs as he defended the Trump/Ryan tax cuts.

"Zero!" for federal employees, unless the GOP Congress passes legislation to offset Trump's elitist disregard form middle America.

How did Senator Ben Cardin respond  when asked about Trump's  budget letter including the word "Zero?"

"Zero. This seems to be how much respect President Trump has for federal workers," wrote Sen. Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, in a statement. "It is outrageous and hypocritical that after spending billions of taxpayer dollars on unnecessary tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations -- and as the President boasts about the 'great' state of the American economy, that suddenly the White House finds that there is zero money left to pay a minimal cost-of-living adjustment to the patriotic, dedicated public servants."
Is there any wonder a recent ABC/ Washington Post Poll shows Trump's approval rating is slipping into the darkness. Of course, Republicans nationwide support Trump at the 90% level, rational Americans continue to find the nation's 45th president a manner close to abhorrent.

Poll linked.

As Trump's World Turns: Propaganda, Threats, Fear Mongering

Propaganda and political malfeasance

The Trump propaganda machine is active and dangerous. Let's run through a few examples.

“President Trump has done more for minority groups in this country than any president in decades.” @LouDobbs 2:54 AM - 28 Aug 2018
Just ask the 3,000 people who died in Puerto Rico.

What follows is propaganda much like we have witnessed throughout recent history. Do you recall how the Rwandan Tutsis and Hutus, and words and phrases used to exhort a people to perpetrate genocide on a fellow nation people? 

Differences between the communities were greatly emphasised by the European invaders of Rwanda and Burundi, first Germans then Belgians, as an instrument of colonial rule. Hutus and Tutsis have the same language; the same religion; the same culture.Nov 16, 1996

Colonialism at its most heinous and its aftermath: millions killed by their national brothers and sisters. 

If you allow yourself to think and deep regarding decades of propaganda ending in the Holocaust and millions dead after World War II, the linked video won't advance your knowledge of the dangers of propaganda. If you live in a bubble of innocence and pristine non-reality, the video is worth every second of its runtime.

How about Bosnia many years later? What was it called "ethnic cleansing"?

For the first time in US History (well at least since the Civil War) A US President has exhorted members of a specific group of evangelical leaders to be aware of the coming elections as a loss could lead to violence from progressive America. The comments were a threat comparable to the many CEOS in 2012 who told their employees to vote for Romney or they would lose their jobs), and a deeper message to the nation with the false promulgation of fear of the Left. 

"You're one election away from losing everything that you've got," and said their opponents were "violent people" who would overturn these gains "violently."

"The level of hatred, the level of anger is unbelievable," he said. "Part of it is because of some of the things I've done for you and for me and for my family, but I've done them. … This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it's a referendum on your religion, it's a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment."

If the GOP loses, he said, "they will overturn everything that we've done and they'll do it quickly and violently, and violently. There's violence. When you look at Antifa and you look at some of these groups — these are violent people."
Trump would use religious leaders to impart sermons to their congregations to support him while cautioning with the false prophecy about an election loss. Imagine that! Trump has a history of declaring "both sides" in the Charlottesville Confederate Statue confrontations included fine people. Those who march with torches, those who fired guns and the man who drove his car into a crowd of progressive protesters where not people who embraced the Left.  Yet, Trump wars of violence if his core support groups do not vote Republican in the fall elections.

Charlottesville killer driver drove his car into protesters  His actions required using his vehicle as a missile to ram other standing vehicles resulting in one death

KKK leader joined Charlottesville protest and firs pistol: sentenced to jail.


"Fine people" And the Left will perpetrate violence?  Propaganda is so dangerous.  

MSNBC's Ali Velshi hosted a segment which literally nails Trump's propaganda for what it is worth. It is a pathetic reality when a US President speaks as such, and it is a microscopic peep into Trump's inner core. Dictators and despots speak and demagogue as Trump spoke with his Evangelical leaders.
Trump warns of ‘violence’ from groups on the left if GOP lose midterms. THIS is the militarization and weaponization of culture. MSNBC Contributor @MalcolmNance on why this is straight out of “the dictator’s playbook”
— Ali Velshi (@AliVelshi) August 29, 2018
Trump continues his attack on US Media 

Recall the Third Reich video licked above and segments of the video regarding the media.

Read a few of Trump's overnight Tweets. If you cannot see the strategy regarding CNN and the media (other than Sinclair News, Fox News and Info Wars) you are wearing blinders. In a moment we will show you how your blinders are a danger to humankind.

I just cannot state strongly enough how totally dishonest much of the Media is. Truth doesn’t matter to them, they only have their hatred & agenda. This includes fake books, which come out about me all the time, always anonymous sources, and are pure fiction. Enemy of the People! 4:11 AM - 30 Aug 2018

What’s going on at @CNN is happening, to different degrees, at other networks - with @NBCNews being the worst. The good news is that Andy Lack(y) is about to be fired(?) for incompetence, and much worse. When Lester Holt got caught fudging my tape on Russia, they were hurt badly! 4:02 AM - 30 Aug 2018

The hatred and extreme bias of me by @CNN has clouded their thinking and made them unable to function. But actually, as I have always said, this has been going on for a long time. Little Jeff Z has done a terrible job, his ratings suck, & AT&T should fire him to save credibility!
3:50 AM - 30 Aug 2018
Any media which reports related to Trump in a non-favorable manner becomes an object of his scorn and targets of propaganda to his base and gullible independents.
