Oh Goody….We Have A New Chant

Those mindless freaks that flock to the rallies that Trump holds have graduated from “Lock her up” to something new and more odious…..

A combative President Donald Trump rallied Republican supporters Wednesday in North Carolina, harshly criticizing four fiery, left-wing congresswoman of being un-American and claiming they are the face of the Democratic Party that will ruin the country, the AP reports. “I think in some cases they hate our country,” Trump said to the crowd in North Carolina, a swing state he won in 2016 and wants to win again next year. Trump’s jabs were aimed at the four freshman Democrats, self-described as “the squad,” who have garnered attention since their arrival in January for their outspoken liberal views and distaste for Trump: Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, and Rashida Tlaib of Michigan.

All were born in the US except for Omar, who came to America as a child after fleeing Somalia with her family. Trump recently tweeted that the Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back” to their home countries—though three were born in the United States. Trump has accused the four of “spewing some of the most vile, hateful and disgusting things ever said by a politician” and has told them, “If you hate our Country, or if you are not happy here, you can leave!” When he named them at Wednesday’s rally, the crowd booed and launched into chants of “Send her back!” Before he left Washington, Trump said he has no regrets about his ongoing spat with the four. Trump told reporters he thinks he’s “winning the political argument” and “winning it by a lot.”

Some pundits are outraged…..some were the same pundits that approved of “Love It Or Leave It”…..all too much crap.

Personally I do not give a crap about Israel or what someone thinks of it….that has absolutely NOTHING to do with pulling this nation into the 21st century.  Trying to piant someone as unpatriotic or hates this country because they do not agree with a bigot and a racist is silly.

But it works on the mindless…..so it will probably work again.

When he, Trump, or any of that members of the most lying bunch, the GOP, uses Israel to drive the political conversation gets their money from Israelis to do so……these are bought toadies of another nation and as such should be under investigation for being a foreign agent.

The mindless nose pickers chanting in a crowd…but how many will do it at work?  Plus this manure by the president may be painting a target on the backs of these 4 Congress people…..what happens when one is injured (hopefully not)?

My America is so much better than Donald Trump and his mindless supporters….sadly too many do not agree with me.

Enough Said!

Every time Trump or his knuckle draggers open their mouths we hear how successful this damn silly Trump trade war is….but just because he says something does not make it so….regardless what the drooling 30% thinks.

Despite the somewhat positive news that Trump would refrain from slapping new duties on an additional $300 billion worth of Chinese goods – which would have sparked a full-blown trade war. Americans have recently become irritated with Trump’s tariffs and his self-proclaimed label as Tariff Man, new IBD/TIPP polling shows, and first reported by Investor’s Business Daily.

The IBD/TIPP Poll covered 900 responses from June 20-27, 16% of respondents said Trump should increase tariffs if there’s no China trade deal this summer. Another 33% said Trump should remove all tariffs on China, even if a near-term agreement can’t be reached, while 44% said Trump should leave the duties in place.

While the President continues to insist that China pays the tariffs, Americans are starting to become more spectacle that he could be deceiving them

Corporate media will not report the real story of Trump’s trade policies….instead they will tell the nation what is rosy and what is total manure.

Back in the day when I did more writing for a local paper I was always having m-to deal with the “Love it of leave it” crowd…people that did not like the criticisms that I wrote would resort to that argument when that was all they had.

Looks like our dear loving president has been part of that crowd as well as “White Is Right” crowd.

He lashed out at the freshmen Democrats that are in the news…..

Four Democratic congresswomen of color should “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came,” President Trump said Sunday. The lawmakers—Ayanna Pressley, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Ilhan Omar— all are US citizens, the Washington Post points out. Omar’s family fled Somalia when she was a child, during civil war; she was a teenager when she became a US citizen. Trump didn’t name the lawmakers but said he was referring to “‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen.” The four women were elected to Congress last year. They have been critical of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi at times, and Trump’s tweet said they are “now loudly and viciously telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful Nation on earth, how our government is to be run.”

Pelosi answered by saying Trump wants to “make America white again.” She added in a tweet, “Our diversity is our strength and our unity is our power.” Asked about Trump’s comment on Fox News Sunday, Democratic lawmaker Ben Ray Luján of New Mexico said: “That’s a racist tweet. Telling people to go back where they came from? These are American citizens elected by voters in the United States of America to serve in one of the most distinguished bodies, in the U.S. House of Representatives.” On CNN, per Politico, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, a Democratic candidate for president, said Trump’s goal “is make America hate again.”

This is typical of the moronic mouth of this president.

Every American should be outraged at this statement from our Dear Beloved Leader…….but instead the sound of crickets for the most part.

I find it disgusting!

I am waiting to see the reaction from the GOP membership….so far as expected they are COWARDS and silent.

Trump In 2020

The report is history and now the news medias will have to find something else to inject into the conversation of the nation…….how about 2020?

Looks like Trump will run for re-election in 2020…..and did you know he is the only president that has NEVER gotten the support of the majority of the nation?

His support has NEVER rose beyond 45%…….

Donald Trump is the first president to fail to win over the support of a majority of Americans during his term, according to an analysis of Gallup polls by the New York Times.

While Trump’s low polling numbers come after George W. Bush failed to earn a majority of support in his second term and Barack Obama failed to earn a majority in the last three years of his presidency, they still mark a record low for presidential approval ratings.

The Times report, which was written by the paper’s chief White House correspondent Peter Baker, noted that the majority of Americans haven’t backed Trump for even a day of his presidency, while his approval rating has fluctuated between 35 to 45 percent.

 
Plus there is bad news for those that do not like Trump (full disclosure…I am one of them)…..there seems to be a consensus that Trump could win re-election…..

Most Americans don’t like Donald Trump.

Trump will most likely be reelected in 2020.

How can both of these statements be true? Here’s how:

Even when people are unhappy with a state of affairs, they are usually disinclined to change it. In my area of research, the cognitive and behavioral sciences, this is known as the “default effect.”

Software and entertainment companies exploit this tendency to empower programs to collect as much data as possible from consumers, or to keep us glued to our seats for “one more episode” of a streaming show. Overall, only 5 percent of users ever change these settings, despite widespread concerns about how companies might be using collected information or manipulating people’s choices.

Yes you read that right……but how can this be?

Democrats accuse President Donald Trump of violating the norms of the American presidency and of the US political system, and in most cases, they’re correct.

Unfortunately, instead of making clear they will right where Trump went wrong, some members of the party apparatus and 2020 presidential candidates aren’t advocating correction. What they’re proposing seeks to overcorrect, creating an environment in which Trump can win a second term by labeling Democrats the extremists.

Trump’s routine trashing of the free press, his dismissal of the intelligence community and the people he handpicked to lead those agencies, and his attacks on the Justice Department apparatus investigating Russian involvement in the 2016 election have created a political climate unlike any other we have seen in modern times.

There are 3 reasons why Trump could win….again…..

It seems absurd to believe that America could make the same mistake again, to elect an ignorant and vulgar narcissist to the most powerful position in the world. But we can’t underestimate the ability of the self-serving super-rich to convince millions of Americans that a surging stock market and a powerful military are essential to their livelihoods. All at the expense of jobs and health care and education.

There are at least three good reasons—strangely and sadly enough—why Trump could win again.

https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/05/13/3-dark-and-disturbing-reasons-why-trump-could-win-again

Dems need to focus less on Trump and more on bread and butter issues to the voter…health care, jobs, income, etc……if they focus on being anti-Trump then I feel they will lose the election.

2020 will be an interesting election…one unlike anything most Americans have never seen….but with that said I do not believe either presidential candidate will have a walk in the park……

“The 2020 election isn’t going to be close.”

That’s the provocative first line of a Washington Post piece by conservative pundit Hugh Hewitt in which he makes the case — as you might have already surmised — that President Donald Trump will be easily reelected.

Here’s the key piece of the Hewitt case, referencing the positive gross domestic product number released last week:

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/opinion/the-idea-that-donald-trump-will-win-easily-in-2020-is-ridiculous/ar-AAAK8gR

Keep in mind something that I posted back in the early days of the 2016 campaign………https://lobotero.com/2016/03/10/is-hillarys-nomination-political-suicide-for-dems/

So to contradict the MSM, who desperately wants Biden as the nominee, the country does not need another Obama-esque candidate…..that ended badly in 2016.

The key to saving the country is……

Homelessness

Our Dear Beloved Supreme Leader in an interview with Tucker Carlson made known a revelation that homelessness was a two year old phenom….

WTF? Right?

I have been writing about the situation for at least 7 years but not to be tooting my own horn here are some of the post from IST…….

https://lobotero.com/2018/10/24/homeless-and-hungry-just-another-country-song/

There is more but this is just a sampling……but now to why I fond the president’s statement as absurd…..

During his interview with President Trump that aired on Monday night on Fox News, Tucker Carlson got the president to weigh in on a topic that he and other Fox News hosts have devoted copious amounts of airtime to lately—homelessness in largely Democratic-run cities and states.

And, according to Trump, the homeless problem is a rather recent phenomenon.

Noting that they were in Japan during the president’s visit to the G-20 summit, Carlson contrasted the cleanliness of their metro areas to large American cities, adding that “there is no graffiti” or people “going to the bathroom on the streets” in Japan.

But if you hate to read then watch his comments…..

These deranged delusional rants are becoming more and more common…..almost like he may be losing his grip on reality…..but that is only my opinion.

The speech of speeches given on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in the shadow of tanks and fly overs out Dear Beloved Supreme Leader (you people do realize when I type that I am being as damn sarcastic as I can without being vulgar, right?)

President Donald Trump read most of his Independence Day speech from a prepared text, but stumbled on his history at one point: He talked about airports during the American Revolution.

“Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports,” Trump said of the fighting force created by the Continental Congress in 1775.

There was no air travel in 18th Century America.

The full riff:

“In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief. The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown.

“Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory. And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant.”

One other note: The battle at Fort McHenry that inspired Francis Scott Key to write “The Star-Spangled Banner” took place during the War of 1812, not the American Revolution.

(USA Today)

Not to worry as usual it was someone or something else fault for the miscue….this time it was the teleprompter…..

President Trump took a lot of ribbing on Twitter Friday over a mistake in his Independence Day speech. When discussing the Revolutionary War, he said: “Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do …” Trump critics were thrilled to point out that air travel was still a long ways off in the 18th century, notes Business Insider. On Friday, Trump told reporters that his teleprompter went out right in the middle of that passage. “It just went out—it went kaput,” said Trump, reports USA Today.

A reporter asked if that might explain the airport mistake. “Yeah, the teleprompter went out,” said Trump. See his comments to the media here. “That’s not a good feeling,” said the president of the dark teleprompter. “You’re standing in front of millions of millions of people on television and I don’t know what the final count was but that (the crowd) went all the way back to the Washington Monument.”

This moron that YOU elected is so ignorant that he cannot ad lib on history…..yet another example of our fine education system….a moron can become president…then there is hope for Alfred E. Newman….we already have Dumb and Dumber.

As we prepare to celebrate Independence Day and the subject of patriotism and love of country will also be celebrated.

The highest form of patriotism is to put country above personal ambition……and we know that the 45th president does that at every turn (that was sarcasm)…..but there is a new low to his rhetoric and his ego-centric dealings.

His daughter with Marples, Tiffany, is the center of a news report……it seems Trump would cut her off if she decided to join the military and serve her country……

Donald Trump’s prenuptial agreement with his second wife, Marla Maples, contains shocking revelations about his finances and values, Vanity Fair reported Tuesday.

“A source recently passed me a revealing document from this era: Trump’s prenuptial agreement with Maples. Its draconian terms suggest a penuriousness at odds with his public image as a free-spending billionaire in his gilded triplex penthouse. And its confidential financial statements included in the agreement is a sketch of Trump’s immense privilege and the wealth he squandered, telling in both what it illuminates and what it obfuscates,” reporter Gabriel Sherman wrote.

“More than anything, the prenup shows how fiercely Trump wanted to protect the money he did have. Maples reportedly wanted $25 million, but Trump agreed to pay her only $1 million if they separated within five years, plus another $1 million to buy a house,” Vanity Fair reported.

“Trump also would stop making $100,000 child support payments for Tiffany when she turned 21. The agreement states that Trump’s payments would cease earlier if Tiffany got a full-time job, enlisted in the military, or joined the Peace Corps,” the magazine added.

Now that is a true LOVE OF COUNTRY (again sarcasm)……..and a higher form of patriotism.

To be honest this is not unique to Trump….it is a common practice for the wealthy that want it all and not to have to pay for their freedom.
