He doesn't seize anything; he is gifted it by people who accept lies as truths. But you have the benefit of having read this book; I have not.

Who doesn't accept lies to one degree or another as truth?
:hs:

You, we all, have to. How would anybody make it through the day?! :nod:

We are all guilty of this. And it is not our fault.
:noclue:

Yea, its that degree of truth that counts, but who are the elite to say that the truths of the people who are struggling each day are invalid?

And if we go...what about the racists?! That is exactly where Trump wants you to go. Call 50% or more of the American public racists. That is simply not true.

There are racists for sure, but I would put the figure closer to 15% of the American public who are politically dangerous racists. I dont care about them.

You win.

Nothing but necessary truths should be relied upon. I was a born male. That's all I know

I will have to say that Trumps brilliance at media manipulation and persuasion never ceases to amaze me. Truly.

He runs a master class on 21st century persuasion where it counts......

:noclue:
I am on the waiting list for the windmill/cancer cell connection.

WRAUOOOOW - WRAUOOOOW - WRAUOOOOW :lol:



Don't know if you have seen this, but it's pretty compelling. The cancer shtick is bunk, Trump knows this, but health risks and environmental risks, absolutely! So he gaslights the left. Windfarms should be nowhere near people.... :noclue:



Roger Ebert gave the film 3 out of 4 stars, writing that the film "left me disheartened. I thought wind energy was something I could believe in. This film suggests it's just another corporate flim-flam game." He notes that there is doubtless a legion of wind-power activists and lobbyists who would counter-argue the points made in Windfall, but asks "How many of them live on wind farms?"[1]
Yeah, so... this is almost entirely BS. There were over 80 windmills on a small island just across from where I used to live. I've been up close around them. They're fine. I know farmers who are going solar, first though, because it's easy for a family to install panels. Much harder to install a personal wind-turbine.

I think Taibbi hits it out of the park.... :nod: :sad:



If you're wondering if Taibbi is a Trump apologist, I'd encourage you to go ahead and read any one of his other articles in the last 20 years.

We're in a permanent coup
Americans might soon wish they just waited to vote their way out of the Trump era


I’ve lived through a few coups. They’re insane, random, and terrifying, like watching sports, except your political future depends on the score.

The kickoff begins when a key official decides to buck the executive. From that moment, government becomes a high-speed head-counting exercise. Who’s got the power plant, the airport, the police in the capital? How many department chiefs are answering their phones? Who’s writing tonight’s newscast?

When the KGB in 1991 tried to reassume control of the crumbling Soviet Union by placing Mikhail Gorbachev under arrest and attempting to seize Moscow, logistics ruled. Boris Yeltsin’s crew drove to the Russian White House in ordinary cars, beating KGB coup plotters who were trying to reach the seat of Russian government in armored vehicles. A key moment came when one of Yeltsin’s men, Alexander Rutskoi – who two years later would himself lead a coup against Yeltsin – prevailed upon a Major in a tank unit to defy KGB orders and turn on the “criminals.”

We have long been spared this madness in America. Our head-counting ceremony was Election Day. We did it once every four years.

That’s all over, in the Trump era...................

Taibbi is a curious read. He gets it for the most part, but is still not quite there on Trumps deep understanding of what is going on here.

His intro to Insane Clown President (the campaign book) is good. It gets 90% of it right, but there is 10% that is still quite wrong/antiquated thinking.

The longer the media plays the buffoon card, the longer it's going to take to right this ship.

In case there was any notion of doubt (hope......), it still seems readily apparent to me that Trump will be winning 2020 easily. Bigger electoral win than 2016. He'll get Minnesota and maybe a couple other states.

Dems and Media still in the woods.

Anti Trump city and an Anti Trumper was picked to throw out the first pitch. The tone was definitely set. It was reminiscent of Michelle Obama getting booed at NASCAR. Who didn’t see that one coming? The country has become so split down the middle due to politics there's no refuge to be had in any sort of entertainment anymore.

Trump Ordered to Pay $2 Million to Charities for Misuse of Foundation

The president admitted he had used funds raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his campaign and pay business debts.
A fund-raiser for veterans that Mr. Trump held in Iowa was in fact a campaign event, he acknowledged.

By Alan Feuer
Nov. 7, 2019

A state judge ordered President Trump to pay $2 million in damages to nonprofit groups on Thursday after the president admitted misusing money raised by the Donald J. Trump Foundation to promote his presidential bid, pay off business debts and purchase a portrait of himself for one of his hotels.
...
The settlement, which was finalized last month and announced on Thursday in the judge’s order, included a detailed admission of misconduct that is rare for the president, who has long employed a scorched-earth approach toward fighting lawsuits.

Among Mr. Trump’s admissions in court papers: The charity gave his campaign complete control over disbursing the $2.8 million that the foundation had raised at a fund-raiser for veterans in Iowa in January 2016, only days before the state’s presidential nominating caucuses. The fund-raiser, he acknowledged, was in fact a campaign event.
The president also admitted to using the foundation to settle the legal obligations of companies he owned, including Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Florida, and the Trump National Golf Club in Westchester County, N.Y. And he acknowledged that the foundation purchased the $10,000 portrait of Mr. Trump, which was ultimately displayed at one of his Florida hotels.

Though he had admitted wrongdoing in court papers, Mr. Trump attacked what he described as “the political hacks in New York State” in a defiant statement posted on Twitter on Thursday night, claiming that the foundation had given “100 percent of the funds to great charities” and that he had suffered “4 years of politically motivated harassment” by the attorney general’s office.

President Donald Trump Has Begun ‘Portions’ of Annual Physical Exam At Walter Reed
Pilar Melendez
Published Nov. 16, 2019 4:59PM ET

President Donald Trump is “taking advantage of a free weekend” and began “portions” of his annual physical exam on Saturday, according to the White House. Trump, 73, arrived at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland in an unannounced visit on Saturday afternoon, three months before his anticipated February appointment. “Anticipating a very busy 2020, the President is taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington, D.C., to begin portions of his routine annual physical exam at Walter Reed,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in a statement to CNN.
