And Gaslighting Continues

Closing Thought–30Jul18

Never thought I would ever hear a politician, especially one in control, ever say the things Our Dear Leader said the other day….

Hours before President Donald Trump’s former lawyer released an audio recording of Trump discussing a hush-money payment to a former Playboy model, the president uttered a phrase that critics said seemed ripped from the pages of George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984.

“It’s all working out,” Trump told a gathering of Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Kansas City, Missouri. “Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”

The remark was made as the president promoted his plan to hit China with new tariffs in an address that took on the form of a campaign speech. Trump’s escalating trade war has resulted in rising costs for some products that farmers rely on, as China has responded to Trump’s first round of tariffs introduced earlier this month.

“Don’t believe the crap you hear from these people—the fake news,” he said of reports of the negative impact of his trade policy.


And the truly sad part is that I know people that will believe this slug on every outrageous lie he tells….without the least amount of proof…..what should be termed as the “mental midget brigade”…..people that will believe a lie over their own eyes and ears….yes 1984 comes to mind.  (Think that is a stretch then maybe reading a book would improve your mind)

“Just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”  (Ever heard the word “propaganda” used before?)

Lies to the Left, lies to the Right….the country suffers and no one cares…….the masses just keeps applauding for worthless slogans and booing anyone not in agreement with their limited understanding of reality.

Just what part of the statement has anything to do with democracy?  The last time I checked this nation was deemed a “democracy”…the statement that I am referring to is something that I have heard many times (I am old so it is many years)……people like Saddam, Andropov, Stalin, Idi Amin, on and on…..but never thought I would hear the leader of this country ever utter such nonsense.

Now the question is….how long will the American people allow this to continue?

The week begins and I do hope that my followers have a great week….be well, be safe….chuq

    1. I love his statement…..”we cannot believe what we see and hear only what comes from his mouth”… that is ego-centric….chuq

  1. Pentagon papers. I was there in the sixties. People of my generation have had trouble believing what we have been told ever since by the government. Including this administration. I have no idea what Trump is going. Obama’s and his Secretary of State Clinton I did not trust. Regean and Ollie North. George W. Bush lied for eight years about what he was doing. Worse performance I ever saw was Powell before the UN. When I watched that I thought it was incredulous and unbelievable that Powell could sit there making those ridiculously inane statments. Never had any respect for him since. I could go on but I will stop now.

    Sorry for the rant. Maybe I am having a bad day. I just got started and could not stop.

    1. No problem… an old fart also I recall the ones you mentioned…..then we have those like Ollie North that was rewarded for their lies and deception….chuq
