“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

Obama Strikes Out Again!

obama5President Barack Obama I must admit has been somewhat of an enigma to me over the course of the past 8 years. He’s a very good orator but he seems not to know when he’s said enough and leave it at that. Instead he gives a great and inspiring speech and then throws in something divisive and that just blows me away! And he did it again…today…in Dallas!

Both Obama and former POTUS George Bush 2 attended a memorial for the fallen Dallas Police Officers today killed last week in a domestic TERROR attack. Obama gave a very unifying speech and offered comfort to friends and family but…but then….he did it again. At the end of his Unifying speech he decided to end it by speaking about gun control! He unified and then he divided and sadly that is typical of this president. Why didn’t he just end it before he made his comments about gun control? The answer to that is rather simple. Obama is NOT a unifier but a divider and he’s proven that over and over again during his tenure as president.

Back in 2008 I had high hopes for Obama. I thought being our first part Black president that he’d do a lot for Black America. I thought he’d sound a message of unity among Americans of all races loud and clear. Why, I even thought he might turn out to be a second Dr Martin Luther King! Sadly, it didn’t take me long to figure out that Barack Obama was no Dr King and it didn’t take me long to figure out that he wasn’t going to do much for Black America. I began to realize that unlike Dr King, Obama was a divider instead of a messenger of Unity! Obama has turned out NOT to be anything I thought he was back in 2008 when we first elected him POTUS.

And now here he is in the last few final months of his presidency and Obama is STILL missing his opportunity. He’s still capitalizing on DIVISION instead of unity! He STILL hasn’t done anything for Black America! What he’s done is proven over and over again that he’s not a unifier and that he is a CORPORATIST just as his protege Hillary Clinton is. He and Hillary are for the RICH and all those who are not rich of ALL COLORS are SERFS! Hillary is playing the SAME GAME Obama played with us back in 2008. And like Obama back then Hillary is just paying us a lot of LIP SERVICE! Empty words and empty promises with NO substance and NO intention of fulfilling any of the promises at all, period! Will America fall for this CON GAME again? Hate to say it but it is highly likely.

Barack Obama is a man and a president who has now missed his golden opportunity and sadly that also means America has missed its golden opportunity. Today, America seems more DIVIDED than every before and that’s pretty sad in light of the fact that Obama is our first Black POTUS. What’s even sadder is Obama doesn’t even seem like he realizes he’s missed such a golden opportunity OR he just doesn’t care. So, in my mind Barack Obama has been a failure as a president and I can’t help but imagine how America would be today had this first Black President been a unifier instead of a divider.  How much different would America and Americans be today had President Barack Obama been a man in the footsteps of Dr Martin Luther King?  We can only imagine now…………..

 

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:

Hillary Blames WHITES for Black Problems! Wait SHE’S WHITE!!

Now let me ask you something.  Why in the world would ANYONE take an advice from the now KNOWN LIAR and CRIMINAL Hillary Rodham Clinton?  Yet, she’s passing out HER advice like no tomorrow now that she’s gotten away with divulging classified info and endangering our national security to the tune of at least 110 times!

ClintonClinton used a CNN interview yesterday to spout her rhetoric (her words mean absolutely nothing in case you’re interested) to embrace Democrats CLAIMS that white people and cops must change to help reduce the number of Black Americans killed in tense exchanges with US Police.  Now grants and as I’ve been saying I think we have some cops that are a bit too trigger happy.  They could shoot suspects in the leg but instead the fire a kill shot. And I also think we have some cops fresh from combat that have some real mental health issues and, thus, should not be cops at all.

You can read more of Hillary’s words at the link below because frankly sense the FBI announced no charges, even though the FBI Director clearly pointed out clear CRIMINAL violations when she served as Sec of State, I just can’t stomach listening to her any longer. Suffice it to say that apparently Hillary has forgotten (conveniently) how it was HER HUSBAND Slick Willy Clinton who instituted “judicial reform” that RESULTED IN the IMPRISONMENT of COUNTLESS young Black Men!!  And now she wants to blame White People?  Well I have news for you…………

There’s no such thing as “White privilege” and if you are White and one of the working poor you know that first hand.  In fact, the ONLY WHITE GROUP that has WHITE PRIVILEGE are the RICH WHITES!  Anyone notice Hillary and her hubby are one of those RICH WHITES WITH WHITE PRIVILEGE?  And she wants to give advice to all the working poor white people???????  LMAO that’s like calling the kettle orange!

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!

RACE WAR Hits America!

NY PostA protest by Black Lives Matter in Dallas, TX turned into a bloody carnage yesterday as snipers shot 12 Dallas Police Officer killing 5. One suspect taken into custody said he planned to kill more cops and another said he wanted to kill white people. Three suspects have been arrested and the fourth one was killed by police. The demonstration began as a protest against two recent incidents of police shooting two black men, one in St Paul, MN and another in Louisiana earlier this week.

I understand this from two points of few. First, why are our police shooting to kill ANYONE OF ANY COLOR? Why not shoot them in the leg, arm, or tase them? I think some of our police are a bit too trigger happy! You can stop someone from reaching for a gun by shooting them in the leg or arm. It doesn’t have to be a kill shot! No one can help but notice that MOST of the suspects are black males. Sorry but that’s a FACT! I can’t help but wonder just how much racism exists in our police departments and the case in Dallas is somewhat perplexing as they have a BLACK police chief. And then there is the matter of hiring police……….

Ex-military USED to make good police officers but I’m NOT so sure that is the case anymore. Vets are being hired and, sadly, SOME of those vets have mental issues due to their service in Iraq and/or Afghanistan. Likely these people should have never been in the military as they weren’t cut out to be SOLDIERS. It takes a different kind of person to be a soldier ESPECIALLY in war! Some Americans just DON’T have what it takes to kill the enemy and forget about it or at least not let it bother them. War is UGLY BUSINESS! It’s not a video game or make-believe!! It is very real and very ugly. Horrible things are done in the midst of war that, sometimes, no human being in their right mind would ever think of doing. But, war has its own special place and rules and they do NOT conform to the rules of peace of civility.

The next thing I want to address is all of the growing hate in our nation especially along racial and political lines. This is a CLEAR sign that something is VERY WRONG in America! This is a clear sign that we are a nation in GROSS DECLINE bordering on the edge of anarchy and barbarism! We’ve seen this hate and anger grow across the country as the gap between rich and poor has consistently widened over the past decade at least. People do unthinkable things when they are hungry and/or have nothing.

Tensions along MANY LINES just not racial ones have been building in this nation for a long, long time now and we all knew that one day these tensions would explode in a very violent way. They exploded, in part, in Dallas, Texas yesterday. Instead of appeasing We The People (all of us no matter what our skin color) the powers that be have been appeasing themselves for decades now and this is the end result of that! No one wants to be enslaved! No one wants to be a serf! Everyone wants to be cared about and respected! No one wants to be discriminated against or hated! It doesn’t matter what the skin color is because the bottom line is we are all human beings and we all want these SAME things. Continue reading
