Trump’s Hypocrisy! Got a clue yet America??

He’s only been in the Crap House for 9 months but it seems like he’s been there for at least 4 years already.  Yes, I’m talking about our esteemed President Donald J. Trump and I don’t know about you but to me and many others he’s already a full-fledged nightmare that everyone is wishing would just go away.  Trump and his administration are a bit like living in the “Twilight Zone.”  For starters it should now be clear to everyone that Trump has problems working with people.  In fact, it appears he can’t work with people because he seems to have an attitude of “my way or no way.”  That attitude might work in the greed ridden halls of business but it doesn’t work when you are the leader of a country or in any other high political office.  Politics is an art and, specifically, it is an art of COMPROMISE.  The Democrats showed during 8 years of the Obama regime that they didn’t understand that little basic reality of politics and now the Republicans are showing that they don’t get it either!  And as for Trump?  The man doesn’t even know the meaning of the world “compromise” I assure you.

Trump is now going to bed with the Democrats because he can’t get anything done with his own party, the GOP, and that would be because of his attitude of “my way or no way.”  Like I said, Trump has problems working with other people.  Right off the bat he offended the GOP leadership in both the Senate and House to the point that all they wanted was to do anything and everything they could to screw him over and they’ve done just that for the past 9 months.  That’s why Trump’s agenda has gone nowhere!  So now he’s hopped in bed with the Democrats to get Obamacare axed and he’s going after GOP congressmen and senators who don’t support the latest version of “repeal and replace.”  Case in point….Trump is now going after Rand Paul for not supporting the latest version to screw the working poor out of affordable healthcare.

No one should be surprised by Trump’s actions (or lack thereof) over the past 9 months because he’s simply doing what he’s done for decades in the business world.  That is….Screwing people over!  That’s the way he’s gotten to where he is via his real estate business and investments, screwing people over, and he’s made a lot of enemies along the way who have not forgotten how they were screwed by him.  Trump is just continuing his typical M. O.  A number of his FORMER supporters, I saw a few days ago, burned their “MAGA” hats in a bonfire already because they are so frustrated and disappointed with him.  LOL guess they now realize just how Trump played them like a fiddle for the naive people they are.  But, again, get used to it because that is what Trump has done in the business world for decades now and in the near future he will continue to screw over his supporters IF and when he deems it to HIS advantage.  This man, this president, has no loyalty to anyone but himself, period!

“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

Security Without Freedom is SLAVERY!

security_1Esteemed Polish Philosopher Zygmunt Bauman has some things to say about the global situation today and the growing fear among humanity. He says that upheaval across the globe is symptomatic of the diffusion of fear. Bauman says people across Europe are on edge as migration and economic uncertainties continue to grow. He notes that the political landscape is changing as there is a growing feeling that the old social structures and paradigms no longer work. So they are being replaced or challenged by the masses. And the SAME thing is happening in the USA! A serious divide is growing along race and economics says Bauman.

Bauman has written extensively about the modern age and what it is doing to the masses across the globe. He coined the phrase “liquid fear” which he has defined as a tangible feeling of generalized anxiety that we see everywhere on the planet today. He says that the problem with “liquid fear” is you don’t know where it will strike from unlike specific fear and danger which you know.

In an in-depth interview with Al Jazeera, Bauman said that humanity is “walking on a minefield.” He went on to say that there are “no solid structures around us on which we can rely, in which we can invest our hopes and expectations.” He notes that even the world’s most powerful governments can no longer deliver on their promises and this only adds to the fear and growing anxiety we all feel.

“ON EVERY LEVEL OF HUMAN LIFE, YOU HAVE THE SAME SITUATION. UNCERTAINTY,” Bauman says.  He told Al Jazeera that today humanity is living in a “state of continuous uncertainty, which makes us afraid.”  He points out that there are two crucial values that are vital to human life and those are Security and Freedom.  Both are absolutely necessary to human existence he says.

“SECURITY WITHOUT FREEDOM IS SLAVERY,” Bauman pointed out, and “Freedom without Security is complete CHAOS where you are LOST, ABANDONED, and you don’t know what to do.”  Today people find themselves “uneasy, lost, incapable of acting with certainty, with assurance.”  He thinks what we see happening all over the world today is the “turning of the pendulum.”  He notes that he believes people want politicians who assert “Give me the power and I will take responsibility for your future.”  In other words, people all over the planet today are looking for a magical SAVIOR!!

“People are looking for MAGIC in leadership,” he says, but notes that is a waste of time!  He also referred to the growing refugee problem in Europe and millions of refugees are flooding into Europe to escape war-torn nations in the Middle East such as Syria.  He specifically notes that these REFUGEES are NOT people who are hungry without bread or water BUT that they are people who only yesterday were proud of their homes, their social positions, and often were very well-educated and well off financially.  But now they are refugees and they “embody all of our FEARS.”  They embody our own fears of losing everything and he says that makes our own anxiety and fears grow and he says in his estimation the “SHOCK is only BEGINNING.”

This generalized anxiety is not something new in my opinion because I think it’s been around for a long time.  We felt it back in the late 70s for sure and since that time I think it has festered and grown.  Humanity has been uneasy or anxious for a long time now!  That anxiety is nonspecific meaning we can’t quite put our finger on it when it comes to identifying the source of our anxiety.  ANXIETY IS UNSPECIFIC FEAR!  That perhaps is the worst kind of fear there is.

Hillary Up To Her Old Tricks Again???

ClintonTwenty-one Democrats in Vermont have filed a complaint on behalf of two Vermont male delegates to the Democratic National Convention that starts next week. The complaint alleges that the DNC demanded two male delegates be replaced by 2 female delegates in the name of “gender balance” EVEN though the 2 male delegates were ELECTED June 11th!! The complaint alleges the 2 male delegates were replaced without due process.

The two Vermont male delegates are Senator Tim Ashe and Ken Dean. Vermont Democrat Party Exec Director Conor Casey told reporters today that the state party was simply following requirements of the DNC. Of course,, the DNC has not responded to the complaint. Ironically, Dean, Ashe, and the 2 female delegates support Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

So what has happened here? The electorate has been bypassed and the DNC via the state party has ignored the duly elected delegates and ordered them replaced by 2 female delegates. And that is just the kind of BULLSHIT that goes on in places like Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia because the electoral process meant absolutely NOTHING! Why are we allowing the DNC to dictate and override the electoral process? And I’m sure the replacements are something Hillary Clinton wanted. She isn’t even in the WH yet (and hopefully never will be) and she’s already playing little dictator! And that’s not all……………

Philadelphia Police and upset with Clinton over her inviting families of victims killed by police to speak at the DNC next week in Philadelphia. They also are upset because Clinton has not invited even one family of one slain police officer to speak at the DNC. Now wouldn’t that be “balance”? Ah, but alas, their is NO real balance when it comes to the criminal Hillary Clinton and Company! However, there is a lot of lopsidedness! Here’s the deal….Hillary Clinton is about APPEARANCES ONLY just as if Barack Obama. Her and her kind are all about “do as I say not as I do.” Frankly, I’m beginning to think Hillary Clinton just might be a BIGOT and MAN HATER!! And it starting to look like she’s a POLICE HATER too! Has anyone heard her express any remorse over slain cops???

And you didn’t really think that’s all did you? Here’s more………………

The DNC Hose Committee has asked a court to keep secret the Clinton donor list!! That is until AFTER the convention in Philadelphia next week. But, this is in spite of a state open records agency ordering the DNC to make public that donor list.

The claimed reason for keeping donor records secret according to DNC lawyers is the fear that revealing it may hurt last minute efforts to seek further donations and negotiate vendor contracts. WTF? No…no I think it might reveal just who is REALLY backing Hillary Clinton and I’m sure one of those BIG DONORS is none other than SAUDI ARABIA the most BARBARIC, women hating, gay hating, hypocritical nation on the planet!! You see, Hillary has been trying to play herself as a “defender” of women’s and gay rights but she’s been getting campaign donations from the most ruthless anti-woman, anti-gay regime on the planet (ie: Saudi Arabia). So how can a “defender” of women and gay rights accept money from a nation like Saudi Arabia???

Now you should NOT be surprised by any of this UNDERHANDED dealing because this is the PC machine in action and Hillary Clinton personifies Political Correctness which denies reality and prefers FANTASY! And btw do you know who came up with the original PC bullshit? Why it was none other than Soviet Leader JOSEF STALIN! Trump might be the “American Hitler” but Hillary is the “American Stalin” and frankly I don’t know which one is WORSE!!

Gingrich Wants “Religious Test” for US Muslims!

“Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for redress of grievances.” [US Constitution, 1st Amendment]

POLICE STATE!!

POLICE STATE!!

Former House Speaker and loudmouth Newt Gingrich spouted off on the Hannity Show yesterday commenting about the terror attack in Nice, France that left at least 80 dead and many wounded. Of course, Gingrich is a neo-con and we all know neo-cons like nothing better than war unless it is the persecution of certain segments of people they don’t like.

His comments yesterday on Hannity centered around Muslims as he called for a “religious test” for Muslims in the US and if they are found to believe in Sharia (Islamic Law) then they should be deported. He went on to say, “Western civilization is at war! We should frankly test every person here who is of Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization. Modern Muslims who have given up Sharia, glad to have them as citizens. Perfectly happy to have them next door.”

But Gingrich wasn’t finished yet! He went on to say that he thinks anyone who goes to any website that supports ISIS or al-Qaeda or any other terrorist group should be charged with a felony. He added that any organization that hosts such a website should be charged with felonies and the website shut down immediately. He also referred to the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution saying the Constitution protects against “an establishment of religion, prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” NOT EXACTLY Mr Gingrich!!

So if we have such a test for Muslims and their personal beliefs then where does it end? Do we next test radical Christian fundamentalists such as those belonging to the Westboro Baptist Church? And after that do we test fundamentalist Jews and their beliefs in Old Testament law? And what about people who believe in the laws of Leviticus in the Old Testament, in which, virtually every “punishment” is death be a person gay or an adulterer? And do we also shut down their “radical” websites out of fear that they might inspire domestic terrorism? Where does this all end Mr Gingrich? Obviously, Gingrich hasn’t really thought this through and that is NOT surprising as he typically has a tendency to run his mouth before he thinks! Continue reading
