Trump Campaign Rally fuels Trump’s fantasies in the land of delusion, once again citing non-existent terror attacks – this time in Sweden, during his duplicitous campaign rally, Trump complains about ‘Fake News’ while spreading it, pro-Trump groups fraudulently blaming President Obama for massive anti-Trump protests, Trump’s America like Nazi Germany, Trump’s treasonous actions, death eaters operating in the White House, turns out Trump’s criticisms of President Obama apply to Trump, Trump acting like a douche bag, Trump’s pernicious ‘enemy of the people’ press claims based on 20th century totalitarian play book and more.

Trump Campaign Rally fuels Trump’s fantasies in the land of delusion:

“President Donald Trump at a rally in Florida Saturday again ripped the media as “fake news” and renewed pledges on Obamacare and border security in an event that appeared little changed from the rallies he gave on the campaign trail.

“They just don’t want to report the truth,” Trump told the crowd of around 9,000 in Melbourne, calling the media as “part of the problem” and “part of the corrupt system.”

“They have their own agenda, and their agenda is not your agenda,” the president said. Trump’s attacks on the media came a day after the president on Twitter called the “fake” news media “the enemy of the American people.”

Despite the fact that the 2016 election has long come and gone, the phenomena of the Trump rally felt as if it had been frozen in time, nearly perfectly preserved since the last time the then-candidate strode to the podium and told thousands of his cheering supporters about the woes of the country and the battles he planned to fight…”

Trump’s lies are finally catching up with him, more on the growing resistance to our minority-elect President, a month of flailing deception from the Trump cabal, reality of Trump stressing people out, delusional dipshittery, more on the other rabid alt-right whack job Stephen Miller, Trump’s endless self-pity, dishonest assertions and scapegoating, corrupt Congress critters avoiding their constituents, Trumps depravity, racism, simplemindedness, ecocide and corruption, Trump’s bottom-feeding percentile presidency and more.

Resisting Trump: The Great American Awakening article from Common Dreams. –

“Old wounds break open. Deep, encrusted wrongs are suddenly visible. The streets flow with anger and solidarity. The past and the future meet.

The news is All Trump, All the Time, but what’s really happening is only minimally about Donald Trump, even though his outrageous actions and bizarre alliances are the trigger.

“As the nightmare reality of Donald Trump sinks in, we need to put our resistance in a larger perspective,” Bob Fitrakis and Harvey Wasserman wrote recently, describing Trump as “our imperial vulture come home to roost.”

The context in which most Trumpnews is delivered is miniscule: more or less beginning and ending with the man himself — his campaign, his businesses, his appointees, his ego, his endless scandals (“what did he know and when did he know it?”) — which maintains the news at the level of entertainment, and surrounds it with the fantasy context of a United States that used to be an open, fair and peace-loving democracy, respectful of all humanity. In other words, Trump is the problem, and if he goes away, we can get back to what we used to be…”

Still refusing to answer questions by deflecting and distracting, more Trump lies, anti-Semitic attacks on the rise since Trump’s popular vote losing victory, more on Trump’s Russian quagmire and the miscreant he “fired,” Trump’s delusional dipshittery continues – speaking volumes about his narcissistic insecurity, Trump’s growing desperation, a conspiracy to impeach Trump and more.

“President Trump is flailing like a man who fears he’s about to go under, and he hasn’t even been in office a full month. His instinct is to flee to the warmth and comfort of his political base — but he will learn that while presidents can run, they can’t hide.

Trump’s administration faces two acute, interlocking crises: serious questions about his campaign’s contacts with official and unofficial representatives of the Russian government, which U.S. intelligence agencies believe made concerted efforts to help Trump win the election; and appalling levels of dysfunction in the White House that make self-inflicted wounds the rule rather than the exception.

The president’s response has been to rant on Twitter and schedule a campaign-style rally Saturday in Florida — both of which may boost Trump’s morale but will do nothing to make his problems go away…”

“…Loving America and Resisting Trump
The New Patriotism
By Frida Berrigan

So reality has inexorably, inescapably penetrated my life. It didn’t take long. Yes, Donald Trump is actually the president of the United States. In that guise, in just his first weeks in office, he’s already declared war on language, on loving, on people who are different from him — on the kind of world, in short, that I want to live in. He’s promised to erect high walls, keep some people in and others out and lock up those he despises, while threatening to torture and abuse with impunity.

Still, a small personal miracle emerges from this nightmare. It turns out that, despite growing up an anarchist protest kid who automatically read Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States alongside the official textbooks, I love this country more each day. So I find myself eternally upset about our new political reality-show, about a man so thin-skinned he lashes out at everything and so insulated in his own alt-reality that no response to him seems to matter.

Above all, I am so mad. Yeah, I’m mad at all those people who voted for Trump and even madder at the ones who didn’t vote at all. I’m mad at everyone who thinks the sum total of their contribution to the political well-being of this country is voting every two or four years. I’m mad at our corporate-political system and how easily distracted people are. I’m steaming mad, but mostly at myself…”

Trump’s conflicts of interest are making him money, avoiding real press conferences, continuing chaos in the White House, more on the moronic miscreants Trump has surrounded himself with, and the revelation that all News that is critical of Trump is “fake News” according to our so-called President and the anti-Christ cabal he allegedly runs.

Trump now owns Obamacare article from Yahoo! News. –
https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/trump-now-owns-obamacare-181736930.html

“President Trump seems gleeful every time the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, encounters some new difficulty. But these are now becoming Trump’s problems, not his predecessor’s, and he’s likely to get most of the blame if some 20 million Americans who get health coverage under the ACA suffer from the program’s demise.

Health insurer Humana (HUM) recently said it would pull out of the ACA in 2018, a development Trump reveled in. Here’s the tweet:

Obamacare continues to fail. Humana to pull out in 2018. Will repeal, replace & save healthcare for ALL Americans. https://origin-nyi.thehill.com/policy/healthcare/319538-humana-to-drop-out-of-obamacare-marketplace-at-end-of-2017 …”

In a Time of Executive Orders, Upholding Truth is a Revolutionary Act article from Counter Punch. –
http://www.counterpunch.org/2017/02/14/in-a-time-of-executive-orders-upholding-truth-is-a-revolutionary-act/

“The first month of Trump in office unleashed chaos and turmoil in the nation, creating what some called a constitutional crisis. With a series of executive orders threatening women’s reproductive rights, immigrants and sacred water guarded by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, public outrage galvanized in protests across the country.

This new resistance against Trump’s repressive nationalist agenda is very encouraging. Yet, in order for this spark to become a truly transformative force, we need to take a hard look at how we got here. Trump’s outrageous move barring people from seven majority Muslim nations from entering into the United States sent shockwaves nationwide. The truth is that this didn’t emerge out of nowhere. This controversial list of Muslim countries that Trump is now using in his executive order was created by Obama, who was the commander in chief that had bombed 7 countries and expanded the Bush era ‘War on Terror’.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which is now receiving a flood of funding after Trump’s unconstitutional immigrant order, had for a long time been fighting the same battle. This nonpartisan civil rights defender had little support when they fought fiercely against the deportation of over 2 million people under Obama. Also, the ubiquitous illegal drone attacks that are now gaining more scrutiny was Obama’s signature policy. The 8-year-old girl that was just killed under Trump was the sister of a 16-year-old American in Yemen, who was a collateral drone strike victim from Obama’s kill list…”

Donald Trump Only Knows How to Do One Thing — And It Isn’t Being President article from the Huffington Post. –
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nell-minow/donald-trump-only-knows-h_b_14689290.html

“It is time to stop pretending that Donald Trump has the intelligence, integrity, or understanding to be President. He is not smart, he is not a good person, and he is not even a good businessman. If he was smart, he would not talk about how smart he is all the time. If he was a good person, he would not lie all the time. And if he was a good businessman, he would release the tax forms and other records to prove it.

He only knows how to do one thing. It is a technique that got him pretty far on reality television and as a famous-for-being-famous-type celebrity. It has now catapulted him into a job he did not want and is hopelessly inadequate for. He knows it and yet has neither the will nor the ability to learn from his mistakes and rise to the occasion.

The sole and only thing Donald Trump knows how to do is what economists call “externalizing.” That means making others pay for your choices or behavior. He uses this technique in business and in responding to criticism.

Trump is a one-trick pony who externalized his costs over and over to make money by using the bankruptcy and tax laws and underpaying his contractors and those who worked for him to force others to pay the costs of his failures while he got to keep the profits. Those gains are probably less than he claims, of course, because otherwise he would show us the details.

That’s it. That’s all he knows how to do…”

Misadventures of a minority-elect President

This will be an ongoing series that appears regularly and will include information about minority-elect President Trump and the rest of the miscreants that make up his administration.

Trump lost the majority vote to Hillary Clinton more than 2.8 million votes – more than 11 million votes when you add those that didn’t vote for either establishment candidate – and has no mandate whatsoever. But that hasn’t stopped him from illegally pushing his immoral agenda on the rest of us. This series of posts will serve as a reminder of that.

Sidney Blumenthal: 5 Ways to Measure Trump’s Illegitimacy article from AlterNet. –
http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/donald-trump-illegitimate

“Not since The Wizard of Oz has anyone proclaimed himself to be so great and powerful as Donald Trump.

He knows more than the generals, the spies and the senators. He knows more than the Federal Reserve, the State Department and the scientists.

He often tells us that he is “a smart person.” Explaining why he does not need to pay attention to intelligence briefings, he said, “I’m, like, a very smart person.”

Comparing himself to George Will and Karl Rove, he said, “I’m much smarter than them. I think I have a much higher I.Q. I think I went to a better college—better everything.”

He has said his mind works at “super genius stuff.” He has said that Vladimir Putin “called me a genius,” which he did not, though he did call him “talented.” Trump has said, “I have the world’s most selective memory.””

Trumpocracy: Where Alternative Facts Create Alternative Reality

Ah the irony of minority-elect popular vote loser President Donald John Trump bitching about “fake news.” Now that Trump has been sworn in to less than stellar crowds regardless of how much he lies about record attendance, the Trump administration has taken to creating “alternative facts” to rewrite history and fabricate an alternative reality. Listening to Trump’s dubious claims of ‘media dishonesty’ and ‘fake news’ would be hilarious were it not for the fact that in addition to having Twitter to spread his fake news and lies, he has the most powerful office in the country to expand his delusional agenda.

Trump is profoundly corrupt and ignorant enough to believe his own narcissistic alternate version of reality and is more dishonest than the media he complains about. Less than 24 hours after Trump took office White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer destroyed all his credibility by blatantly lying about the attendance at Trump’s meager inauguration. When Spicer’s failed attempts of ignorantly trying to sell his boss’s delusional reality failed, Trump’s subservient Chief propagandist Kellyanne Conway, who also serves as White House counselor, went on America’s Sunday morning political theater TV and defended Spicer’s decision to provide ‘alternate facts.’

To understand and defeat the pathological liar-in-chief in the White House and the propaganda pushers filling his key cabinet positions, it’s important to learn how they disseminate their lies. Our delusional leader and Kellyanne Conway are responsible for most of the lies, though Trump’s Chief strategist Steve Bannon, a White alt-right Nationalist who was registered to vote in 2 states, and was the former editor of Breitbart – a right-wing conspiracy theory pushing publication that will be increasingly utilized to push Trump’s lies – will also play a major role in pushing the White House’s fallacies. The top 3 strategies used by Trump and his ilk include: Lie, repeat the lie, then try to deflect, distract and divert the lie. When that fails the next strategy includes bullying and attacking those that dispute the easily refutable lies so don’t get confused by their duplicitous bull shit.

A MINORITY-ELECT PRESIDENT WITH NO MANDATE

It can be challenging to keep up with all the Trump administration’s lies so seeking the truth will require keeping close tabs on everything he does. Like many before our minority-elect, popular vote losing President, Trump says one thing and does another. Actions really do speak louder than words so no matter how disingenuously Trump lies, his actions will reveal his true intentions. Deflating Trump’s lies will also require fighting back and holding the fraudulent companies and political pundits accountable for their actions and lies (a good place to start is educating yourself on the Heritage Foundation and the American Legislative Exchange Council which have been advising our dimwitted, thin-skinned president all along, then get to know Bannon and Conway better as they will continue playing crucial roles in Trump’s Ministry of Propaganda).

The biggest pisser of the 2016 election

Like the majority of Americans that didn’t vote for our illegitimate minority-elect President Donald J. Trump who has absolutely no mandate whatsoever, I awoke on November 9, 2016 with a putrid sense of despair knowing that for at least the next 2 years America will be drastically eviscerated courtesy of the minority mass of morons that were foolish enough to be conned into voting for him. But the biggest pisser of the 2016 election is that now a majority of us will also pay a heavy price for the perfidious ignorance of a minority that was foolish enough to put a profoundly corrupt psychopathic wannabe dictator in the White House.

Despite the unsubstantiated Kafkaesque cries of Russian hacking of America’s election based on bogus assessments and speculation with no proof whatsoever that, according to one leader of our Intelligence complex, did not result in any votes being flipped for our Orange incoming wannabe dictator and were only designed to sway public opinion against the establishment’s more preferred Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton coupled with flatulent cries of FBI interference – despite protecting Clinton from prosecution from criminal malfeasance with a private email server which would have landed virtually anyone else prison time — Clinton has no one to blame for losing the election to a fraudulent, profoundly delusional liar whose disdain for rules and laws have been well documented but herself.

Leaked – not hacked – emails revealed numerous questionable acts of chicanery and malfeasance that only confirmed what many of us knew about Clinton all along. Disenfranchising the more popular candidate didn’t do the Democratic Party any favors either. Also note that the same morons in Washington’s Culture of Corruption that willfully lied us to war with Iraq (DNI James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham as well as their whores in our Corporate media) are claiming Russian interference in an effort to goad the public to war with Russia. Think about it and consider the sources.

After losing the presidency despite having more than 2.8 million popular votes from the majority of Americans that weren’t disenfranchised and discriminated against, Democrats lost badly as more Republicans won elections in a multitude of U.S. states and gained total control of the U.S. Congress thanks in large part to the flood of corporate money in public elections geared towards misinforming a large part of America’s gullible population that is incapable of making informed decisions and too stupid to realize that once again they have been duped, voter disenfranchisement in 27 states, uncounted ballots, and because multitudes of people couldn’t bring themselves to vote for either candidate.
