Donald J Trump – Creator of Fake News, Destroyer of Democracy

As vocal as Donald Trump has been about the existence of “fake news,” he always seems to be the source of it.  Again, I call on Trump supporters to stop being closed minded and stop hanging onto every word Rush Limbaugh says, and genuinely look for the truth.

Trump has been great at rallying crowds of hardcore Republicans with false claims about the media being out to get him, but it’s all nonsense and it needs to stop.

Recent claims that President Obama wiretapped Trump Towers have not only been proven to be false, but even GOP leaders have stepped up and admitted that they have ZERO evidence to support these claims.

In an age where politics tend to override common sense, common decency, and accountability, it’s refreshing to see some GOP leaders put party aside and admit that the President’s claims are nonsense.

For that I applaud them.

America deserves better than a President that feels the need to create fake stories to divert attention from his scandal of the week.  We need to restore integrity and honor to the White House or risk losing the respect of the world, and that can only be done if Republicans and Democrats work together to put an end to fabricated news coming from Washington.

Trump has time and time again thrown out unsubstantiated claims as a smoke screen to the truth.  It’s like clock work.  As soon as the heat starts building on him, a new and wild allegation comes out.  It’s juvenile and beneath the office of the President of the United States of America.

It’s time that America unites and holds him accountable for his actions, his words and his nonsensical fake news.

Trumpocrisy Strikes Again

 

As inept and unstable POTUS Donald Trump was giving a speech about Making America Great Again by buying American and Hiring American, and claiming that it’s not just a motto – it’s a pledge, news spread that his daughter currently has approximately 53 tons of Chinese products in shipping containers on their way to the United States.

So my question to Disastrous Donald…Is Ivanka going to send back the 53 tons of Chinese shoes and clothing and pay a fair price to make them in the United States?

We all know the answer and we once again see proof that Donald Trump is in this for the Trump Organization, not the American people.

On the “Hire American” front, you may remember that Trump claims that he has to hire immigrant workers at his Florida golf club because “getting help in Palm Beach during the season is almost impossible.”

Records show that since 2010, approximately 300 U.S. residents have applied for waitstaff and housekeeping jobs at Mar-a-Lago, but only 17 have been hired.

Trump supporters need to open their eyes and open their minds just a little and start facing the truth. Donald Trump’s hypocritical actions speak louder than the words written for him on the teleprompters.

Truth and Human Decency be Damned! Trump is Win-At-All-Costs

Politics have always been  dirty  and this is never seen more than in a Presidential election, but Donald Trump has taken the game and made it a complete war.  He has thrown out all rules and all civility for a win-at-all-cost campaign where integrity and human decency are no longer important.

Not only has Trump gone to a no-holds-barred type of fight where hitting below the belt is a common occurrence, but now he has decided that there is also no need for the truth. Politicians regularly stretch the truth, or take things out of context to benefit their campaign, but Trump takes it to a whole new level.  The only thing important to him is getting his degenerate crowds to cheer.

Whether he’s telling supporters that Hillary Clinton is going to allow 650 million immigrants into the country, or that she’ll eliminate the 2nd amendment, or that she’ll triple the cost of their health insurance, truth is secondary to cheers (at best).

#47 in the greatest hits of #Trump’s campaign of lies:

Unfortunately, millions of Trump supporters have been brainwashed and blinded to a point that they are willing to overlook rape and sexual assault allegations, blatant lies, and complete indecency when it comes to the GOP, but want to lock-up (or even assassinate) Clinton for using a private email server.  It has really become a sick and divisive campaign that will, win or lose, leave our country divided and in chaos.

Trump’s childish, deplorable antics are un-American and definitely not those of an American President.

Hopefully enough of the nation will be clear-minded and intelligent enough to see through his fear mongering and scare tactics and keep him out of the White House.  If not, the America we know and love will be a thing of the past.

FOX News Reports Trumps “Flexibility” on Issues

 

I find it humorous that the only non-politician in the Presidential race is acting the most like a political stereotype.  Trump has been called out numerous times, once by FOX News itself, for flip-flopping on hot topics to tell the voters exactly what they want to hear.

Now, on the topics of minimum wage and taxes on the wealthy, FOX is calling it “flexibility.”

The bottom line is that Trump will say whatever he needs to say to pander to the voters.  When he was trying to win over Republicans, he was firmly against a minimum wage hike and would never consider raising the taxes of the rich.

But now that he’s got the Republican seat locked down, it’s time to start pandering to the swing voters that may be a little more liberal.  So now his “flexibility” is coming into play.

It really saddens me to see how many Americans don’t see through this crystal clear facade.  It doesn’t say much for the intelligence of our nation as a whole when someone like Donald Trump can manipulate masses like this.

He’s not even truly a Republican, but because he put his name on the GOP ticket and went around for a few months bashing Democrats, now every Rush Limbaugh-loving conservative has been drawn into his web.

It really is amazing!

 

Rush Limbaugh: The Posterboy for Misongynistic A-holes

Have you ever played the game telephone and seen how badly a phrase or story gets twisted as it gets interpreted by different individuals?  Well that’s nothing compared to how extremist Republican talk show host Rush Limbaugh has twisted events surrounding Sandra Fluke.

Fluke is a Georgetown law student who was lobbying to have her birth control medication covered by the insurance of  the university. 

She wasn’t protesting or causing a distraction to anyone, simply exercising her right to respectful free expression.  But for some reason Limbaugh was offended by her actions and used his radio show as a platform to attempt to destroy her character in front of a national audience.

In his opinion, covering the cost of her birth control is a “welfare entitlement.” 

His interpretation of her request was that she “goes before a Congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex.”

Really?  She said she must be paid to have sex?  The guy is an absolute moron that twists every event in such an extreme way to get his thoughtless followers fired up and enraged.

He went on to call Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute.” 

“She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”

Can someone please explain to Mr. Limbaugh how women’s birth control works and that it is the same cost regardless of how much sex they have?  And while you’re at it, please explain to him that birth control is not simply used for contraception but can be prescribed for other health issues, like irregular menstrual periods, menstrual cramps, acne, PMS, endometriosis, and for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome.

It would be my hope that his listeners would see how badly he twists the truth on an everyday basis but the IQ level of his audience probably isn’t high enough to put 2 and 2 together.

It is great that his sponsors are all leaving him. 

Rush Limbaugh is a misogynistic a-hole and I hope that his ivory tower comes crashing town on him.

War in Iran is “not a game!”

After four years of bashing the President about government spending as he tries to bail the nation out from the mess that Republican President George W. Bush got us into, Republican candidates are now bashing him for not jumping into a war with Iran.

President Obama continues to maintain peace the best he can through diplomacy and strict sanctions, but GOP candidates apparently believe that America should drop bombs first and ask questions last.  Did any of these candidates witness the Bush administration’s years in the White House?

In an address to a pro-Israel group meeting in Washington, Mitt Romney declared that, “as president, I will be ready to engage in diplomacy, but I will be just as ready to engage our military might.”

Is he implying that the President isn’t willing to engage in military action when necessary?  Did he forget who got Osama Bin Laden after a Republican President chased him for eight years?

This attitude that America is the super power that should flex its “military might” anytime anyone in the world does anything against our policies is the attitude that makes America the most hated nation in the world.

President Obama has flexed enough power already with the implementation of some of the strictest sanctions ever and at this point there is no reason to jump into a war that will further cripple our economy.

It is also funny that all of the GOP candidates are blaming the Obama Administration for gas prices to try to win votes of people who aren’t smart enough to understand that the accusations are ridiculous yet every one of them is ready to start bombing Iran immediately, which would send gas prices easily into the $5.00 range.

Only Ron Paul, who I normally disagree with, is intelligent enough to understand that Iran is not an immediate threat and that diplomacy, not the immediate use or threat of force is needed.

If diplomacy fails, then let’s put the military into action.  But at this point it would not be wise to go in with guns blazing.  The President’s response was exactly right when he said that “war in Iran is not a game.”

President Obama went on to say “When I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war, I’m reminded of the costs involved in war; I’m reminded of the decision that I have to make, in terms of sending our young men and women into battle, and the impacts that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy.”

Let’s not forget that even though we’re in an election year and it’s easy to get caught up in a campaign and winning, we still have a nation to run and we must continue to do what is in the best interest of our nation and put the politics aside.

I think it’s important for everyone in America to understand that the two-party system is supposed to be there for checks and balances, not to create two Americas. 

Let’s start working together instead of fighting each other based solely on party affiliations.  God Bless the USA

America…Think on your own! Make your own Decisions!

I’ve never been a really political guy and really never attach myself to any political party permanently.  I try to go into each election looking at the candidates’ views, demeanor and personality before making a choice. 

If a candidate dances around questions or issues, chooses to bash the other candidates before highlighting himself, or has a clear agenda that is above the good of the community or nation, I choose not to support them.

I try to look for a candidate that seems genuine, talks about what he will do rather than sling mud, and has an overall presidential presence. 

Politics has just gotten way too out of hand lately for me.  Politicians are so focused on the next election, regardless of when it is, that they don’t care about actually working to help the country.

If politicians would simply work together and be open-minded enough to compromise every now and then, America could once again be the greatest nation in the world. 

Right now we’re sliding into a hole as a country and the farther we fall, the harder it will be to eventually get out.  Politicians are wasting time and money that is needed to repair our nation on negative advertising and political non-sense. 

So much time is wasted on Capital Hill fighting and bickering rather than talking and compromising.  It is hard for me to believe that educated adults could be so close-minded that they would let party affiliations and egos stand in the way of national progress.

I will give President Obama a lot of credit for opening doors for bipartisan opportunities but it seems like in the past few years republicans have been more worried about setting up the next election than working with the President and democrats to repair our economy and nation.

Let’s put an end to the nonsense and move our nation forward.  The problem is that too many Americans form their opinions based on what they hear on television and talk radio.  Stop listening to extremist like Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and start listening to the candidates to make your own decisions. 

Not that these guys are wrong about everything, but they are paid to be extreme and paint a negative picture about everything anyone in the democratic party does.  They are not paid to report the unbiased facts.

Too many Americans are too lazy to do their own research and make their own decisions so they rely on someone with an extremist view of politics to spoon feed them opinions and political knowledge.   America…think on your own!  Make your own decisions!
