Republicans point to video games, Trump blames fake news but does admit that white supremacy is to blame! Trump does not admit, however, that he stokes the fires of said white supremacy! News media, just because it disagrees with Trump is not fake news! But is responsible in one sense, they cover his rallies and hate speech giving him a world platform to spread his hate, fear, and blame game! So in that way, they contribute to the incitement of those who are ready to hate into actions that cause death and destruction! I played a lot of video games, and yes I played shooting games that included combat. I also played cowboys and Indians as a kid because the movies at the time screwed with history and I did not know any better! But I have never entertained a desire to do another harm! In adulthood, I became an avid supporter of Native American rights and programs to help improve their lives! That is because unlike some politicians, I became educated by reading and studying about what is really going in the world, you know actual history! Columbus did not discover America, never even saw it. His main gift to his Queen upon his return was, in his opinion, a native population that could easily be enslaved and stripped of any wealth! And no, Africans did not migrate to America, they were stacked asshole to bellybutton in the hold of a ship and brought here to be sold like cattle to the highest bidder. One last rant, we are all one race, we all came out of Africa at one point or another in our past, and climate and the local environment caused us to adapt and is responsible for our differences in appearance. But we all have common ancestors, there is no superior race, only inferior thinkers. We have one of those inferior thinkers in the current White House, backed by some of the most backward-thinking people in our history! Do you get it now!

There is a lot more to Gallagher than just this case! He was the subject of an investigation for the shooting of a young girl in Afghanistan in 2010! He also allegedly tried to run over a Navy police officer with his car in 2014 after being detained at a traffic stop. By 2015, Gallagher had acquired a reputation as someone more interested in fighting terrorists and less interested in compliance with rules!

Another accusation was that Gallagher’s sniper work during his 2017 deployment became indiscriminate, reckless, and bloodthirsty. He fired his rifle far more frequently than other snipers who also did not consider him to be a competent sniper! He also took “random shots” into buildings. Other snipers said they witnessed Gallagher killing an unarmed older man and a young girl walking with other girls. Gallagher allegedly boasted about the large number of people he had killed, claiming he averaged three kills a day over 80 days, including four women. Gallagher also was reportedly known for indiscriminately spraying neighborhoods with rockets and machine-gun fire with no known enemy force in the region.

The case was difficult due to the Navy’s slow response to the reports of misconduct. No investigation began for nearly a year after the reports had been filed and by then much of the physical evidence was not recoverable. The prosecution’s case relied on eyewitness testimony, which the defense sought to discredit as merely that of malcontents who disliked Gallagher’s leadership style. The defense also said that Gallagher’s text messages only reflected dark comedy in a stressful situation and that his more outrageous boasts were impossible (such as killing twenty people a day).

A charge of obstruction of justice was brought against Gallagher for alleged witness intimidation. According to the claim, Gallagher threatened to kill fellow SEALs if they reported his actions. The Navy cited his text messages as attempting to undermine the investigation! This resulted in confinement with heavy restrictions on his ability to communicate, later lifted by Trump with no regard for why he was so restricted!

So I am a former two-tour Vietnam vet, a Marine Sgt. and proud of my service. So I am not a basher of the Navy or Marines. But I am going to point out what I think is going on here. As I stated, it took almost a year for the Navy to start investigating. That alone says something. The other problem as I have already pointed out is that he had all kinds of indicators that command should have picked up on but did not! Reread paragraph two! So if he had been found guilty, there would have been questions! Why people who were responsible for him did not know or react to his attitude and the many horrible infractions that were coming up on a regular basis! I hate to believe the following, but I do! The medic who finally came forward and confessed to the killing of the combatant, I believe, was pressured by his superiors to do so and guaranteed immunity if he did! This was done so that questions about why command did not react to multiple reports and charges that would asked if found guilty! So this man was only convicted for posing with a dead man when he had ten charges filed against him. Even two drug charges! According to the original Navy prosecutor, “Chief Gallagher decided to act like the monster the terrorists accuse us of being. He handed ISIS propaganda manna from heaven. His actions are everything ISIS says we are.”

The Navy is thinking about charging the medic with perjury who claims he actually killed this combatant! However, for reasons I just gave, I doubt that will happen, the chain of command up the line will not support this! Trump thinks that this man should have never been prosecuted regardless of his guilt. He was just killing the enemy, and he does not see that honor and integrity were destroyed here! Just the man’s tweets and emails alone prove his guilt by his own admission!

Now Trump wants any medals given to Navy prosecutors, in this case, to be stripped from them! These Navy officers do not get to select who they prosecute. They receive orders then they follow them based on the Uniform Code of Military Justice! So Trump is, as per usual, wrong-minded here! If he understood how all this works as the Commander in Chief, he would never make such a request. But of course, he knows more than anyone in the Navy, the Pentagon, more than all the Generals and Admirals, according to his own words anyway!

Trump’s Descriptors

  1. We will start with the word yuge, he used this word to describe things like solid gold staircases.
  2. Bigly is another he uses to describe things he thinks are important or anything describing some action of his!
  3. Believe me is a catchphrase of his, which is not surprising since he has told 2,000 lies or aberrations of the truth since he became President!
  4. Stupid is another word he loves to shower on anyone who disagrees with him, usually either preceded or followed by I am a very stable genius!
  5. Loser is a word he uses to describe anyone he does not like, from national heroes to terrorists!
  6. Moron is one of his favorite words to describe anyone making statements about him that are unfavorable. This from a man who has threatened to sue anyone who releases any of his grades! You would think a very stable genius would be proud of his grades!
  7. Great is a favorite, it is on his hat, describes his wall, anything he has ever done, maybe followed or preceded by bigly!
  8. Fake News, a term he uses anytime any of his antics are actually reported on. Sure news is pejorative in a lot of cases, but if you pay attention, he uses the term “fake news” when it has uncovered something he does not want you to know about!
  9. Trump likes to use words no President should ever use to describe his political adversaries. Sloppy Steve Bannon, Lyin Ted, Crooked Hillary, Liddle Marco, his spelling, not mine, Low Energy Jeb Bush, Pocahontas, Cryin Chuck Schumer, Flaky Jeff Flake, Liddle Bob Corker, Little Rocket Man, Leakin James Comey, Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd, Nervous Nancy, and the list goes on. Is this how you imagined a President of the United States representing you to the world?
  10. I only ask that you remember what class and decorum from a President used to look like! When the phrase “I heard a lot of people saying” was not proof that what you just heard was true! When a President actually knew where countries were on the globe, who did not complain that Hawaii’s president failed to greet him, or that he expressed a wish for a Happy Memorial day to a bunch of Japanese diplomats and military brass while in Japan!When a President did not take the word of a Russian leader over his own intelligence agencies! Or when he describes brutal dictators as great leaders and a good man! When your President on a live mike talked about how he chased married women for sex, and how they let him grab private parts of their anatomy, all while being married himself. He openly cheated on former wives while still married to them. Trump has paid off more than one porn star to keep quiet, he has been named in multiple cases of sexual assault, and one rape of a minor. Money made that go away, but that does not make the crime any less! If you support this man you support the degradation of our democracy, both morally, and as a nation! There is no other way to describe you! Everything here is in the public record for anyone to see! Anyone that cars to see, anyway!

 

 

 

Trumps Economy?

Trumps Economy!
Not the boon to mankind that was promised!

Our leadership and ranking in the world economy, because of Trump’s tariff wars, has dropped from first place to third!
The welfare check that was written to the wealthy also did nothing but add to the national debt by the largest margins in our history! Backed up by this administration’s own reporting and the International Monetary Funds report on how nothing trickled, no jobs were saved, no bonus for the workers!

Now Trump is going to place tariffs on our largest trading partner, Mexico, to hold them responsible for his fear and loathing of brown people. A 5% tariff will begin on June 10, “if the crisis persists” tariffs will increase to 10% on July 1, the tariffs will continue to increase to 15% on Aug. 1, 20% on Sept. 1 and 25% on Oct. 1! If Mexico does not take action “to dramatically reduce or eliminate” the number of migrants traveling through its territory to the U.S.-Mexico border the tariffs will permanently remain at 25% until Mexico “substantially stops” the flow of migrants coming to the United States illegally through its territory. You think going to the grocery store is expensive, you haven’t seen anything yet! From turnips to cars, everything will get more expensive! Cars alone will increase in price about 1,300 bucks!

Trump keeps saying how his tariff war makes us money, he does not understand basic economics. The tariff is passed on to you and me! I might point out tariffs as a punishment of a foreign country that is not connected to commerce has never been done before, and again, it is tied to Trump’s belief that this is a national emergency! Or at least a lie he wants you to believe! A lie about an army of rapists, terrorists, and gang members, which anyone knows is bullshite! The problem is the terror, rape, and abject poverty that is driving these people north! Trump is not even looking at the root problem because he does not care that it is happening! He just does not want them here, for reasons you and I both know has nothing to do with economics!

Do You Get It Yet

image.pngTrump is a narcissistic megalomaniac, thief, and moral deviate! Everything that is associated with his family is the most beautiful, the grandest this and that. But since his facts and history only exist in his head, I guess he can embellish all he wants, or lie, which is what he does every single time he opens his mouth! Are any of you starting to get it yet!

Trump several times, whenever he is overseas and complains about NATO says his father was born in Germany, he was actually born in New York. Trump does have German roots through his grandfather. Grandad Trump tried to immigrate to Bavaria as his wife hated the Bronx, where they were living at the time. Gramps was forced out of Bavaria because he had formerly run away to avoid military service, which was required! Trump also claims his dad was a hero in the war and shot down 80 enemy aircraft if so he would be a national hero, but the fact is neither his father Fred Trump nor grandfather was ever in the military, the apple does not fall far from the tree, evidently!

In 1927 Fred Trump, Donald’s dad was arrested by New York police while marching in a Ku Klux Klan parade, Donald denies his father was ever arrested, I guess he was to busy shooting down those 80 aircraft in the war!

In 1954, Fred Trump was investigated by a U.S. Senate committee for profiteering from public contracts, including overstating his Beach Haven building charges by $3.7 million. Sound familiar, taught his son well!

Donald Trump joined Trump Management Company around 1968 and rose to become company president in 1971. Donald Trump claimed to receive a loan from his father in the mid-1970s of $1 million but actually documented as numerous loans exceeding $14 million!

Minority applicants turned away from renting apartments complained to the New York City Commission on Human Rights and the Urban League, leading the League and other groups to send test applicants to Trump-owned complexes in July 1972. They concluded that whites were offered apartments, while blacks were generally steered away. Both advocacy organizations then raised the issue with the Justice Department. In October 1973, the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a civil rights suit against the Trump organization (Fred Trump, chair & Donald Trump, president) for “violating the Fair Housing Act of 1968.” Actually, they had to file against Donald Trump a second time, as he was still turning tenants of color away years later! Really a great man and role model sitting in the Oval Office, don’t you think!

There is a whole list of building projects that were not reported accurately on taxes, whole sets of apartments Fred sold to Donald way below market value as a tax dodge. Probably one of the reasons Donald Trump does not want anyone looking at his taxes, one of many reasons I am sure!

Again, I ask, are you starting to get it now?

Let’s start with a few facts. There are no true socialist countries in the world, never have been. There are countries that spout socialist ideas and like the Soviet Union, as it was called during the cold war era, mixed socialism and communism ideologies together, but was neither. It was a dictatorship or a monarchy take your pick! The communist party owned everything, controlled everything, and gave the populace enough to sustain the workforce, not much else!

So Trump wants you to believe, and why you would not just automatically assume anything he said was a lie with his record, that the Democratic Party wants us to become a socialist country! That liberals want to destroy capitalism using climate change as its driving force! That his wall and his rule are necessary to keep our country from being overrun and decimated by non-white criminals, and by any green initiatives, again an attack on capitalism, according to Trump! That he is a religious icon and that Christianity is under attack and the Christian Bible should rule our education and our government. In that vein, he states that the Constitution is too restrictive and the rules need to be rewritten! His words, not mine!

So now, let’s look at a few things from a world point of view. If climate change is not happening, and we are not accelerating it (humankind) then why is it that we are the only country, the only one, on the entire planet not to actively engage in the fight to combat it! Or why, on the world stage, are we the only industrial nation not to provide universal health care to its citizens, even though we spend way more than they do on healthcare, have less positive outcomes, a lower life expectancy than all to them! Again, the only one! When everyone else on the planet says one thing, and you are the lone holdout, does that not suggest you may be on the wrong side of a said issue? Especially since our own Pentagon has told us that climate change is the #1 most dangerous threat to our national security! That prestigious organizations across the globe like NASA and our own National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have said that climate change is real, it is caused in large part by our industry and lack of restraint. And that it will be devastating to our economy, safety, and quality of life. Yes even under the Trump admin they still say the same thing!

Now let us dwell on the title of this article for just a moment. Trump only cares about power, money, and adulation, as do a majority of his fellow Republicans, they just do not take it the edge of lunacy, but they protect their President because he is their scapegoat. Get it while you can and screw the rest mentality exists in our political representatives, and if you are honest, more prolific as a GOP trait. In that pursuit, they have given out corporate welfare by the trillions, including huge perks to the most wealthy among us. At the same time write-offs that policeman, firefighters, and teachers used to get were abolished, in favor of the rich being able to write off the maintenance and storage costs of their private jets! If you block any attempt to barter for the best prices for drugs, what possible moral road have you just gone down, or are we protecting oligarchs and their bottom line? Of course, we are! They never replaced the Affordable Care Act with the big beautiful and so much better plan Trump promised! They, Republicans, are not even trying to create one, they never intended to! The ACA messed with the oligarch’s profit margins and that could not be allowed to happen. And since money now has as much standing as our citizenry, it just stood up and bought what it wanted, or those that have it did, anyway!

I do not know if you are aware, but the countries that inhabit the planet earth do not consider us a capitalist country, but an oligarchy! They no longer trust us, and think we are a threat to the health of the planet and its safety! And no matter what Trump says, he is not respected, but rather he is feared among our allies for his ignorance, his innate fascination with dictators, any so-called strong man, and people who have absolute power over their respective populations. This is power he admires and wants! This is why countries that used to be our allies are looking elsewhere because we are now thought of as a bullying nation, not a bastion of peace or safety for the globe, not any longer!

So Trump, our Liar in Chief, has already started on his campaign of misinformation and outright lies to make the American people think that he is at war and that he is our savior! Just fact check the CPAC speech, there was no truth in anything he said! It was all misdirection, obfuscation, and prevarication! If you cannot bear to vote democratic, at least try and elect someone who has some integrity, some moral values! I am sure there must be a Republican candidate that has not been accused of sexual misconduct, is not under investigation, convicted, or confessed to multiple crimes out there somewhere, find he or she and get rid of the orange menace!
