NEWS ALERT: HOW LIES BECOME TRUTHS

July 18, 2019

We hear what we want to hear, see what we want to see and accept what we choose to accept. Or, as with the quote often attributed to Marcus Aurelius, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth”.

It is becoming all too common. A statement, a tweet or gesture is taken out of context and spread across social media until it seeps into the realm of traditional media. If not prior, it then becomes the truth that many seek. The repetition makes it undeniable. It’s real. It happened, I read/saw it everywhere!

Because “somebody did something” some time ago, it is easy to conflate that happening to a glance, a phrase or motion giving it a meaning never meant. It is a ploy used effectively throughout our daily lives and is profoundly used by the main stream media and politicians.

While conflation for effect is used by both sides of the political aisle, it is used most frequently by the left and the far left. If you don’t believe what I say or act the way I believe is correct it’s because you’re a RACIST.

At Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, a former clerk, sitting behind him, made a movement with her right hand. To Trump haters, this was a display of the White Power symbol. To some, it was a showing of “OK” as if she was agreeing with his answer or with the proceedings. To others she was simply scratching her left arm.

Michelle Obama: “All this for a Damn flag”, was accepted as a true lip reading at 9/11 commemoration ceremony and it became fodder for hatred of the first lady. It gained authenticity as the video and interpretation made the rounds. Nobody other than Michelle and Barack knows for sure what she actually said.

Go back to your country has been used so many times it has the same affect as calling somebody racist…none. Therefore, it can be used as a point of conflation when necessary.

Last Sunday, President Trump aired his frustration with four Democrat freshmen in a tweet. The actual tweet: “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

There was no reference or inference to their sex, heritage, race, ethnicity or national origin. There was no mention of any country yet the distorted version which is so prevalent is “Go back to their countries and fix their governments”. For effect, the Trump haters across the nation, in congress, in cyber, on air and in columns and “actual” news stories have conflated this tweet with a familiar admonishment.

The “Squad” to whom President referred in his tweet consists of:

Ilhan Omar – Minneapolis, MN – poverty rate for Minneapolis is +/- 22% compared to MN over all rate of 10.2%. 109% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 15.73 daily crimes that occur in Minneapolis making it less safe than 97% of the cities in the United States. In Minneapolis you have a 1 in 18 chance of becoming a victim of a crime on any given day.

Ayanna Pressley – MA 7th district – Boston. A very diverse population. Poverty is 18.7% or 1.5 times the rate of MA and 1.4 times the national rate. Violent crime is 87.66% higher than the state of Massachusetts and 78.15% higher than national crime rate.

Alexandrea Ocasia-Cortez – Bronx/Queens, New York. 1.7 Million people (52% of her district’s population) lives below the poverty threshold. Chances of being a victim of violent crime is almost 3 times greater than anywhere else in New York State.

Rashida Tlaib – MI 13th dist. Includes half of Detroit. Median household income $29,863 (roughly half of U.S. income). Unemployment 24.7% (6.5 times the national average). Violent crime is second highest in U.S.

Is there still a question about what President Trump was referring to when he said, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

If you watch or read nothing but opinion news from biased sources you’re left with only one viewpoint and therefore it is the correct one. If you favor the truth, you will avail yourself to multiple sources that vary in viewpoint, each containing at least a modicum of truth.

PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW UNDER INVESTIGATION FOR USING MORE THAN TWO SQUARES

December 17, 2018

While on her Global Warming College Tour in 2007, Sheryl Crow told the audience that the average person should use “only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required”.

Though applauded by her fellow Al Gore and save-a-tree groupies, she was ridiculed by all who wish to do a thorough job of cleanup in the restroom. If you use only one or two squares it becomes very important that you use an abundance of warm soapy water to cleanse your hands…not environmentally recommended. Beyond that, the need for extra attention to clothes washing must be considered.

I’m reminded of this little star studded idiocy episode due to the multitude of President Trump investigations. It seems now that a group of highly partisan Democrats headed by Robert Mueller might be screening the sewers under the White House and Mar-a-Lago to identify if the president is, or has been, following the one or two squares rule. They’re seeking anything possible to use against him and/or his family or associates that CNN and MSNBC can use to fill their air time for 24-48 hours..

The latest lurch to non-conclusion is an investigation into possible inappropriate spending of inaugural committee donations. It seems that President Trump may have spent too little on inaugural balls, fluff and hoopla and gave too much of the donated money to charities providing relief services to hurricane victims.  IMPEACH 45! IMPEACH 45!

While I have admittedly received more than one deserved ticket for excessive speed, I generally follow the local, state and federal laws. I expect others to have similar respect for our laws and the enforcement of them. If President Trump or Michael Cohen or Hillary Clinton or Lois Lerner or Charlie Rangel or any members of any of the myriad alphabet agencies under the executive branch or any group or individual throughout our government are, or have been, subverting our laws they must be punished. The statute of limitations should include, but not exceed the perpetrator’s lifetime!

The law must be applied equally to members of all political parties and just discipline must be carried out. Likewise, any prosecutorial misconduct must also be harshly punished.

For nearly 26 months now, our current president has been under constant siege.  The swamp creatures are seeking anything…anything…on which he might be held criminally liable. From collusion to crapping, thus far no evidence has been presented that he has done anything different from any of his predecessors of any political party or governmental position. He is despised because he is an outsider and the insiders want to get rid of him.

If there is any severe bending or breaking of any law by any of our elected officials or the bureaucrats whom they hire, there should be swift justice meted. I’m not referring to a verbal or even written reprimand or censure put into a file and forgotten. I’m calling for punishment that cannot be waved in front of, and lauded by, fellow party members as a badge of honor. In my view, a lengthy stay in general population at the medium security United States Penitentiary, Fort Leavenworth is an apt adjudication for those who have abused their fiduciary responsibility.

Continually searching the sewers of Washington D.C. for evidence of double use of poop paper when there is no direct tie to the president is ridiculous, wasteful of both taxpayer money and government resources and, at this point, needless. It is time to wrap up the politically motivated special counsel so that congress and others can get back to their regular and normal in-fighting and wastefully spending our tax dollars.

If evidence is available, after more than two years of intense investigation, that President Trump unnecessarily used four squares, send him to Kansas. Otherwise Mueller must shut it down and let Trump continue making America great again even if he’s unconventional or not presidential in his approach.

YEAH, AND JOE SCARBOROUGH WAS A REGISTERED REPUBLICAN UNTIL LAST YEAR

June 19, 2018

I just love the noise coming from our congressional anti-Trump Democrats and even many with an (R) after their name. If the president is for it, they are against it even if they were for it prior to the November 8, 2016 (10:00pm EST) vote tally. And the expression of dissent is so hateful!

Despite his efforts to correct the dictatorial edicts made by his predecessor, President Trump has been called every vile name possible. He has been compared to Hitler so many times that even high school and college kids are actually beginning to Google “Hitler” to find out why they are supposed to despise him (them). Apparently, public schools have replaced world history with social justice classes.

In any case, the fact that someone has been associated with the Republican party and does not agree with everything this president says or does, does not make them the “official source” of all that is true. Constantly we hear “James Comey is a Republican”, “Robert Mueller is a Republican” or so-and-so was appointed by a Republican, therefore they cannot be biased either for Hillary or against Trump. When a sitting congressman or Senator with an (R) after their name says something derogatory about the current administration, he or she becomes the authority and their words become the chant of the MSM outlets for the following 72 hours or beyond.

President Trump ran under the Republican ticket, accepted the Republican nomination and won the presidency but with little help from the Republican party. He is not a true Republican by the definition of any era. He was a registered Democrat for many years. Today he is the President of the United States. He is a businessman trying to do the job no politician is willing to do. He is doing a pretty darn good job of it, too, without the support of the old line politicians…of either party. Because he is not Hillary Clinton (former Queen and twice losing Democrat), and he is not a traditional politician, and because he is not a life-long tax paratrophic, he is reviled by many in both of the major parties.

He’s the new kid on the block and everyone must stand back until he starts giving out candy. When each person has enough gifts, they might cautiously approach for more. It’s kinda like the raccoon that crosses your property every night. If he sees you put out food and a bowl of water enough evenings, eventually he will approach you while you do it. He might even appear to be friendly until the rabid animal bites you.

Personally, I don’t expect the president to hand out any more candy again before he gets to ride that brand new bicycle. President Trump was duped once by the conniving politicians of congress. He signed a massive, deficit riddled CR without funding for a security wall on our southern border. I seriously doubt that will happen again in the next 30 months.

President Trump is not Hitler and Joe Scarborough is no authority on either Hitler or this presidency.

TRUMP vs. THE SWAMP

October 30, 2017

I am not a Trump supporter. I did not vote for President Trump in the primary though I did vote against the lying, conniving and corrupt malefactor known as Hillary Rodham Clinton in the general election.

That said, I find myself tending to defend the president’s attempts to make America great again more and more with every attack on him from the left and established politicians of both parties. It is not necessarily because I agree with everything he’s doing, it’s just an innate need to counter-resist the insanity that is pushed into my face and senses every day.

I have, from before the beginning of his presidency, believed that he will do what he can to make the necessary changes to the political inbreeding of the past century. The eight year period prior to his inauguration was filled with Alinsky divisiveness to turn this country into a Marxist/socialist experiment. The Constitution was shredded with executive orders, underhanded and corrupt dealings, illegal and unnecessary regulations, fines and confiscations.  Many of President Obama’s actions and those he encouraged were contrary to our founding documents and laws passed by congress thereafter. The courts are just now getting around to ruling on and reversing those violations.

President Obama sliced and diced the country thinner than any Ginsu cutlery could and in more ways than one can count.  He pitted blacks against whites, poor and working Americans against their wealthier counterparts, workers against management, women against men, Latinos (even American Latinos) against other Americans, gays against straights and virtually every possible faction and subset of our society against those whose views were different. There was no compromise. Deep and wide chasms were formed where dialogue once existed. By his promotion and organizing, discussion became vitriolic and dislike became hatred.

The task of restoring our democratic republic is only made harder by those entrenched in government stalling and combating the president’s every effort. This is coming not only from those elected to congress, but from the career bureaucrats who view change as a threat to their existence. It’s as if they fear their effective tenure inoculation will be rendered deficient. In reality, any change to increase efficiency and economy is truly a threat to them. Some may even have to quit playing GTA and watching as much porn on our computers during the work day and get a little work done.

It happens to be Donald Trump, a man with a tendency to be direct and abrasive when demeaned or belittled. However, it could be anybody in the White House trying to make major changes and correct the course of the current and failing political structure in Washington, D.C. (the swamp). There are simply too many public functionaries anchored throughout the halls of all federal (now feral) entities for a small cadre to overcome within a few months. Congress stalls appointments and the intelligence and law enforcement arms refuse to cooperate for fear of indicting themselves. They seem to still be taking orders and directions from the immediate past president who forms and organizes public and private resistance just a short distance from the White House.

I’ve been watching politics since the mid 1970s, perhaps a bit before, and this is the first time that I can recall former presidents and congressional members (without respect to party) attacking a duly elected president outright. Yes, there have been one-off snide comments, snipes and innuendos over the years, but nothing like the unmitigated onslaughts that happen on an almost daily basis. This year and last has been a circus of has-beens, wannabes and other losers trying to one-up each other and take their 15 minutes of celebrity by shooting the captain in the back before scuttling a seaworthy ship.

To restore law and order, the filthy swamp must be drained, dehydrated and incinerated.  We voters must then refill the void with new and hygienic resources in Washington, D.C. and our local governments.

BOAST OF ACHIEVEMENTS, BLAME BUSH, BELEAGUER TRUMP

February 3, 2017

Just like the nightly liars and bird cage liners, I just can’t say enough about our recent former president. He manages to stay in the news almost as well as the news has managed to stay on President Trump. He hates it when the Klieg lights are not focused on him.  For the first time in over eight years, Obama used some restraint for an amazing ten days. Then he made a fool of himself again.

Every time President Obama was caught indecisive, from his campaigning days on, he blamed President Bush for the predicament. The situation, any situation, was caused by his predecessor. Well into his second term as the country’s theoretic leader he refused to take responsibility for the outcome of his own actions or inaction. To be truthful, the closest he ever came to accepting responsibility was when he said, “it could have been done differently” referring to one of his many f*#kups.

Now he’s weighing in on his successor. Still not ready to accept responsibility for jobs, the economy, global hatred and distrust for the U.S. caused by his lack of leadership, he is mocking any changes made to mitigate his ineptness. Like any good Alinsky acolyte, he is encouraging anarchy.

On Monday of this week, Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country”. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”

Burning cars, breaking windows, beating people with opposing views is not the way to display dissatisfaction with a policy or administration. Protest, yes. Riot, no.

Per normal, he got it wrong again. In an effort to raise angst and anger among his loony groupies, he interjected the “Muslim ban” meme into the vetting of potential terrorists. Conflate for effect…or outright lie. That is the way of the progressive left.

It antagonizes the left any time a particular group of people is somehow restricted. Well, that is, groups other than normal people, people who use logic and reason in decision making, those who believe in and follow the constitution and abide by the laws (God’s laws or man’s), etc.

No, he couldn’t raise enough emotion among his hate-filled, hurtful and vicious lemmings when he was president to order or invoke martial law. Oh what glorious power that would have bestowed upon him. Perhaps now that he can again pray on his knees, head to floor, five times a day he can find the enlightenment to enrage the left and elevate them to complete and violent nihilism. Then he can blame Trump!
