“Unethical Amnesia”? No! It’s called “you can’t remember your LIES!”

commentary by Monomakh —–

The absolute bullshit that comes our of academia and “science” today never ceases to astound me.  These people are absolutely full of shit IMO!  Case in point?  Here’s the latest and it concerns PRESIDENT ELECT DONALD TRUMP:

Soviet_4“Unethical amnesia” could explain some of Donald Trump’s forgetfulness” reads the headline on AOL News this morning.  The article notes that Trump made headlines this past week by “forgetting” a campaign promise.  On his “Thank you tour” Trump said in Indiana that he “forgot” he’d promised to save American jobs at the Carrier gas furnace factory in Ohio.  In fact, he said he “found out” about HIS promise only when he saw a Carrier employee talking about it on TV!  Trump went on to say, “And I never thought I made that promise.  Not with Carrier.  I made it for everybody else.  I didn’t make it really for Carrier.”  FACT CHECK is that Trump DID in FACT pledge to keep Carrier jobs in the US rather than letting them go to Mexico.  And, Trump made that pledge SEVERAL TIMES during his presidential campaign!  So why did Trump forget?

Well leave it up to a Business Insider report to come up with an ABSOLUTE BULLSHIT explanation!  That opinion article refers to new social science research (what a load of CRAP) about what is being called “unethical amnesia.” And just what is that?  “Research” conducted by social science professors at Northwestern and Harvard Universities shows that some people have poor memories when they engage in dishonest behavior such as those who run for office and make campaign promises like Trump.  This research concluded that after a person engages in unethical behavior (ie:  LYING!) memories of their actions become more “obfuscated” over time because of the “psychological distress” (ie:  GUILT) and discomfort such misdeeds cause.  In other words, people who LIE tend to not be able to KEEP THEIR LIES STRAIGHT because they tell so many LIES they forget which lies they’ve told!  And we had to have a social science “research study” for this???  And the “cure” for this “unethical amnesia”?  The Northwestern and Harvard academics say the cure is  to “reflect.”  WTF?  Reflect?  Don’t you mean “try to remember what LIES you’ve told and to whom you’ve told them to”?

So is this a taste of what we’re going to get for the upcoming 4 years (and hopefully not any longer than that)?  The conservative press making up excuses for Trump?  (and YES I consider Business Insider a right wing Corporatist media).  The FACT is that Donald Trump made a lot of promises he knew he couldn’t keep during his campaign just as all other people running for office do.  His sole purpose was to get votes and get elected so he, like all other politicians, told people what he thought they wanted to hear.  He latched on to the far right winger agenda and played it like a fine tuned fiddle!  He simply told the right wingers what they wanted to hear and they fell of him lock, stock, and barrel.  But, NOW that he’s been elected there is a PROBLEM for all of you right wingers out there in never-never-land.

That right winger problem is Trump is appointing cabinet and staff officials to his administration that stand in DIRECT OPPOSITION to many of the positions he took during his campaign!  For example, this ExxonMobile CEO that (rumor says) he’s going to name as his Secretary of State does NOT support America becoming energy independent AND he has stated in the past that he SUPPORTS A CARBON TAX!  Those two items are directly opposed to what Trump said during his campaign as Trump specifically stated and tweeted that he was absolutely opposed to a carbon tax and that he absolutely supports America becoming energy independent.  So why is Trump appointing people that are at the opposite ends of his agenda?  “Unethical amnesia” perhaps?  LMAO!

Let me enlighten you and especially all you right wingers out there…………….

Donald Trump is a PLAYER AND ACTOR in case you haven’t noticed.  His “reality” TV hit “The Apprentice” was amazing and Trump played the role of “big boss man” absolutely perfectly.  But it was an ACT designed for TELEVISION!  In fact, all of these so called “reality shows” have little to nothing to do with REALITY at all.  Example:  I don’t know about you but if I were stuck on an island or deep in the wilderness and was trying to survive I’d be killing me some shit like rabbits, deer, wild boars, birds, fish, etc.  I’ll be damned if I would be sitting around eating rice and cockroaches!  Another example:  If I went hunting for Bigfoot and I got pics, DNA, and various sorts of physical evidence that the creature actually exists I’d make sure to PROVE IT beyond ANY doubt to the entire world using REAL SCIENCE so that its existence would be undeniable!  I’ll be damned if I’d be running to and fro unshaven and looking one of the Beverly Hillbillies looking at “evidence” (photos, blood, etc) gotten by other people and just walk away without taking possession of that evidence for testing!  Like I said.  There all of these “reality shows” have nothing to do with REALITY and that includes Trump’s “The Apprentice.”

I’ve personally always believed that a man or woman’s ACTIONS speak far louder than their words and in the case of our President-elect his recent actions in appointing his cabinet and staff are INCONSISTENT with his words spoken BY HIM during HIS campaign for POTUS.  That tells me HE LIED!  This guy isn’t even in office yet!  He’s appointing people that stand in direct opposition to his campaign rhetoric and promises and that tells me that in Trump’s mind running for POTUS was just another “reality show.”  Well guess what America?  LIFE ISN’T A FRICKIN REALITY SHOW!!  In MY opinion Donald Trump is already proving he’s a LIAR!  He’s already showing us just how well he played and conned us!  He’s already laughing at how stupid and foolish We The People have been AGAIN all the way to the Oval Office!!

End of the Obama Era

Political Commentary by Viktor Sukov

The end of the Obama era is now drawing to a close and all I can say is Thank God for that. The past 8 years of his presidency have been a complete disaster for our country, for our people, and for the entire world. And Thank God Hillary Clinton didn’t win the election as we would have 4 more years of Obama’s “doctrines” which are a joke to say the least.

No!  No!  I won't go!  This is my public housing home and they'll have to drag me out!  Why am I being forced out of the WH???

In the past 8 years we’ve seen our country reduced to almost a third world nation economically. We’ve seen attempt after attempt by the Obama administration to reduce the most sophisticated and powerful military on the planet to rubble. We’ve been played like fools and we’ve been repeatedly lied to that make one’s head swim. Instead of being a great unifier Barack Obama has turned out to be the Great Divider and he and his administration have divided our nation in ways that were once unimaginable. When it comes to Black Americans, Barack Obama hasn’t done one damned thing for them over the past 8 years and the fact is Black Americans are no better than off than they were 8 years ago and possibly even worse off. That’s a really sad legacy for America’s first “black” POTUS (remember he’s half black and half white).

Obama’s signature piece accomplishment has been the Affordable Healthcare Act aka Obamacare. He touted it as something that would reduce the high costs of medical care and assured us that for the first time in American history healthcare would be affordable to all. Not long ago people got their notices from their health insurance providers and those notices sent most people into a state of SHOCK as they were informed their monthly premiums were going up over 100%! Affordable? It now appears there is NOTHING AFFORDABLE about Obamacare. Continue reading

US Workers Take to Streets Over Wages!

WORKERS OF THE WORLD UNITE!!

uniteNow more than ever the American workers need to unite and fight against the ruthless predatory powers that be for a decent wage. For far too long American workers have been exploited and it is time to STAND UP. American workers have been little more than SERFS for the past 10 years and the GROSS LACK of action by that absolutely WORTHLESS body called “Congress” proves it beyond any shadow of doubt.

Fact is it is impossible to live on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour without also being on public assistance. All of our politicians claim they want to cut public assistance roles so why don’t they raise minimum wage so people can earn a descent living without being on such assistance? It’s because they are NOT serious about public assistance “reform” as it keeps the American worker in a state of servitude and that is exactly where the elites wish to keep us. SERFS!

The federal minimum wage today of $7.25 is worth LESS today than it was in 1968 when adjusted for inflation. That is absolutely ASTOUNDING! The federal minimum wage has not increased since 2009 and that is equally astounding considering the HUGE price increases we’ve seen over the past 6 years in terms of food, rent, gasoline, and all other costs of living.

Some states have taken it beyond themselves to raise state minimum wage to at least $12 per hour but that doesn’t happen until 2020 which is FOUR YEARS FROM NOW! Why is this state min wage not taking effect NOW? Again…..SERFDOM! Exploitation of the working poor! And this $12 per hour falls short of what many workers have been demanding which is $15 per hour.

Who Runs America? It ain’t poor or working White People!!

Who REALLY runs this nation? Well it sure as hell isn’t poor or working White people! Take a look at the following stats:

1. America today has MORE wealth and income inequality than any major developed country on the planet.

2. The gap between RICH and everyone else in this country is WIDER than at any time since the 1920s!

3. The top 1/10th of 1% owns almost as much wealth as the bottom 90%.

4. An astounding 58% of all new income since the Wall Street crash has gone to the top 1%.

5. We have an overflow of millionaires and billionaires in this nation YET at the same time millions of not-rich Americans work longer hours and for LOWER wages!

6. America has one of the HIGHEST child poverty rates of any developed country on the planet!! And yet we are the richest nation on the planet?

These are pretty DISGUSTING statistics for a nation who prides itself for being the richest nation on earth and a fortress for social justice, equality, opportunity, freedom and democracy!!

And yet, these stats PROVE beyond doubt who is REALLY running things in this nation and who has been for MANY decades now. It’s time for a REALITY CHECK America! It’s time to identify the REAL OPPRESSORS in this nation!!

And solutions to all this:

Obama, Federal Police, and No Division!

BY KEVIN LIPTAK Warsaw, Poland (CNN)Frankly acknowledging a “tough week” in the United States after anxious days of shootings and racial tensions, President Barack Obama said Saturday that he did not believe the United States was “as divided as some have suggested.” * “There is sorrow, there is anger, there is confusion about next steps,” […]

via OBAMA DENIES DIVISION PUSHES FEDERAL POLICE — tomfernandez28’s Blog

Barry O. has emerged from the cave on the golf course he’s been living in once again telling Poles that he wants more federal oversight of local police forces across the USA.  What he’s bucking for is to federalize all police!  Think GESTAPO, SS, etc!!  He also told Poles there is “no division” in America!  LOL you talk about out of touch and now we known where his compadre the CRIMINAL Hillary Clinton gets her “talking points” from.  Now….could he thought of a more appropriate place to talk about a Federal Police Force than Poland outside of Germany?  Ah yes, POLAND ….home of the NAZI DEATH CAMPS during WW2!!!!

SHAME on you Barry O!  Go back to your cave!

Serf’s REVOLT: The demise of democracy

The recent Brexit vote that ended the UK’s ties with the European Union has sent shock waves around the world among the global elite Corporatist who now find themselves scrambling to save their own necks. Clearly the masses are ANGRY! Clearly the masses are in REVOLT! This will become even more obvious come November when Donald Trump ousts Hillary Clinton for the presidency.

According to an article in the Washington Post the Brexit vote is not just a British problem but a reflection of growing discontent among the masses (serfs) and an erosion of confidence in democracies around the world. Clearly the common folk are sick and tired of immigration (legal or illegal)! Clearly they have had enough of “globalization.” And their growing discontent also stems from decades of empty promises and a lot of WORTHLESS LIP SERVICE from politicians who talk big talk but DON’T deliver JACK SHIT! These politicians are incapable of leading and the growing collapse in confidence in them is creating a goveRevoltrning crisis. The Post says, “…for which there seems no easy or quick answer.” Say what?

Here’s a clue Washington Post……….

We The People want these lying, snake jackasses OUT of government! We do NOT want their Nazi Fascist Corporatism! We do NOT desire to be citizens of the world nor do we desire to live among masses of immigrants from other lands who REFUSE to assimilate into OUR culture! We The People have had enough of the LIES and half-truths of CORRUPT politicians whom we KNOW no longer represent us but, instead, only represent their corporation overlords and special interests. We The People DEMAND representation and we DEMAND POWER TO THE PEOPLE be given back! Most especially we are sick and tired of being RULED over by an elite that is COMPLETELY OUT OF TOUCH with the masses and reality! The GLOBAL REVOLUTION has begun and you the Fascist Corporatists know it!

You can read the Post article at:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/will-brexit-change-the-behavior-of-politicians-in-britain-and-elsewhere/2016/06/27/f4317494-3c75-11e6-9e16-4cf01a41decb_story.html?hpid=hp_no-name_britpolitics-440pm-1%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

BTW Iceland just elected an relatively unknown leader similar to Trump. No one thought he had a chance to win but he WON! He’s not part of the Corporatist elites either. So the REVOLT of the COMMON PEOPLE is spreading like wildfire.

We DON’T have democracy anywhere!  What the world has is a FASCIST CORPORATIST SYSTEM POSING AS DEMOCRACY!  The solution is to put an end to the Fascist system and REPLACE it with DEMOCRACY!!

I think all this is GOOD! It’s about time people stand up to these corrupt elites and break the yoke of serfdom they have put around our necks! POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!!! Because that IS where POWER belongs!

THE SERF’S REVOLT!!! Global REVOLT against the New World Order!

The first rumblings of the working class being fed up with the New World Order as set forth and promised by POTUS Bush, Sr. began to arise in the Middle East during the so called “Arab Spring.” That was Part 1 and now Part 2 has begun with the British vote to leave the European Union effective ASAP. Part of this Part 2 also is the rise of GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump whose rapid rise up the American political ladder no one predicted. Surely, we thought, Trump would never come anywhere close to gaining a real chance for the GOP nomination BUT we were WRONG! And what is the meaning of all this? It is simply that the working poor on the planet are SICK AND TIRED of the global elites and their globalization! The common man and woman are REJECTING the elitist Corporatist plan!! Well…..IT’S ABOUT TIME!

protestor-san-cristobalWorkers have come to feel left out in the cold as they’ve watched their jobs go overseas, their income decline, prices rise, and a forced global “diversity” in which we are supposed to be accepting of anybody and everybody no matter what. Workers have grown increasingly anxious over forced rapid integration of foreign products and people into their lives. They’ve grown not only anxious but outright ANGRY over the loss of national borders, language, and culture. The elites might view themselves as “global citizens” but the common working man and woman in the West DOES NOT!

A growing sense of political helplessness among the common folk has contributed strongly to these feelings of resentment towards the global elites. Increasingly workers have come to KNOW that their leaders no longer respond to concerns of the common people and this realization has only served to anger the common masses even MORE!

Populist Uprisings are now the call of the day as Brexit (Britain’s exist from the EU) just proved and as, most likely, the November 2016 POTUS election will also prove. The common working people are sick of the status quo in the West. They are tired of being treated as 2nd class citizens! They want their country BACK wherever they live and out of the hands of the globalists!

Racial tensions and political polarization have contributed to the growing discontent of the masses. What we are now seeing is the beginnings of the Rise of POPULISM and that has got the Corporatist elites running scared. It’s about time! These globalists have manipulated economies to their own personal advantage and gain while the common folk have paid the price in terms of job loss, insecurity, and poverty! The common people DO NOT want to be “citizens of the world”!! The common people DO NOT want to live in borderless states! The common people DO NOT want to be a part of the globalist plan!! Now the common people in the West are driving those points home as yesterday’s vote in the UK to leave the EU cost the globalists BILLIONS of dollars in financial losses! Continue reading
