Trump's War On The Media

" it is a responsibility of the President to call out violations of that important part of our society for they are truly an "enemy of the people"

 

Violations? I'm LOL. The definition of a violation for Trump and his minions is any news media outlet which criticizes him. 

 

The real enemy of the people is the pathological liar in the White House who is supported 100% by his blind, loyal cult members as Trump continually attacks our free press.

The first thing Trump did was describe the free press the "enemy of the people". That was and is disgusting, scary behavior. Never fear, members of the Trump Cult will defend his dictator like behavior to the very end.


Understanding the importance of an open, free and unbiased mass media, it is a responsibility of the President to call out violations of that important part of our society for they are truly an "enemy of the people".

Gee, I miss having a real president!


Yes, William, look at "the idiot they so adore" and the rest of that stuff and see if you are looking at, "severe dislike" as opposed to open minded willingness to discuss.

rk, please observe proper protocol here. We do not suffer from blind hatred, but rather open eyed, 

truthful, severe dislike...there is a difference. 

 

Thanks. From your friendly neighborhood, fake news, lefty liberal, neo-marxist!!

Chuckle, chuckle!


Yep, "Republicans suck" is "open eyed" as is calling anyone of a different view "Nazi, fascist, alt-right, racist, etc.".

 

As to "neoMarxist" - as I have posted read up on Karl Marx and study his 10 planks and if you cannot see them in the Progressive Movement.

You got it!!

interesting your comment about mirrors and reflections. And to think that theoretical physicists speak of parallel universes that may exist right next to us without us being aware of. Such as matter & anti-matter universes beside one another. Perhaps what we have here is truth & anti-truth universes along side each other...

sure seems that way!

 

truth is not theoretical, it exists

It's scary. I wish others would think for themselves instead of demonstrating blind loyalty to their hero in the White House.


We are here but you are unable to see it because of your blind hatred for the President. Do you have any idea how often you post that "hero" nonsense without a single example or bit of proof as to motivations?


Nobody "hates" Lemontop - we hate what he's doing to destroy America. The proof of his hero-worship cult of followers is 30% STILL approve of him. the "proof" of motivation is simple: All he's done is attack minorities, insult our allies and rant for War with Iran and North Korea. Those who cheer are either braindead or in favor of persecuting minorities, destroying our alliances and starting more Wars. If they're NOT, they'd stop cheering.


The usual childishness "Lemontop" and "hero-worship" followed by the approved list of "those" facts like "attack minorities".

 

Standing up to trading partners you see as destroying alliances and starting a war when, if you could get rid of your "Oh how I hate Trump" prism you would see that he is making America first and setting up negotiation bottom lines.

Like the man said "You have a right to your own opinion, but not to your own facts."

FACT: The Reagan Tax scam RAISED taxes on the bottom 99% and caused the greatest redistribution of wealth - from the middle to the very top - in the history of Civiliazation.

FACT: The above is not true no matter how many times it is repeated.

LIE: Check the tax tables and deductions before and after Reagan. When the money was collected as taxes it went to the middle class who did the work the Government paid for. When it went to the 1%, they kept it for themselves. How do you think the concentration of wealth at the top happened?

TRUTH: Whether a person keeps or spends their own money is not the business of the government.

FACT: Obamacare REDUCED the growth of medical costs for the first time in 50 years and gave PRIVATE health insurance to 34 MILLION Americans.

FACT: It did not reduce the cost, it just passed the bill to someone else.

LIE It DID reduce the cost by removing the handout to the Corporate providers ($71Billion/year) AND it slowed the growth of costs by keeping people with Obamacare healthy so their use of medical services was reduced

TRUTH: Your claim about "gave PRIVATE health insurance to 34 MILLION Americans" is misleading - someone had to pay for it, ergo, wealth redistribution.

FACT: Raising the SS "cap" to $250,000 immediately will make the system solvent forever.

FACT: It will not work if those paying increased "contributions" receive comparable payout.

LIE. The payout is based on a 30-year average of contributions, so for 30 years the increase in revenue will exceed the increase in payout. During that time the SSTF will increase to the point the interest earned will outweigh the increased payout and the system is solvent forever.

FACT: Common sense says that if you use the same increasing everything the same ends up with the same outcome. Besides, that is opposed to the FDR concept. Are you disagreeing with FDR?

FACT: The Trump Tax scam handed $1.4 Trillion to the Corporate Oligarchs who have already used it to buy back stock and give one-time bonuses to some workers who will soon lose their jobs because nothing is being invested to keep them competative in the world economy.

FACT: It is none of your business what anyone does with their own property.

LIE It is my business when it's my tax money that was intended to boost the economy, not the personal fortunes of the Oligarchs

TRUTH: The economy has been boosted, the nation has profited, the American citizens have gained. 

FACT: The FBI is the most respected "police force" in the World and Republicans are trying to make it a political hit team.

FACT: True (first part) and what a shame that a few corrupted individuals have damaged it's reputation. As to the second part, that is the corruption of the Obama Administration I refer to.

LIE. If there is corruption to the level needed to derail that high profile an investigation, the system must be corrupt and that is what the NRAGOP is saying, despite the fact the head of the FBI disgraced himself and the agency with his unprecidented slander against Hillary

TRUTH: Using the DOJ of partisan purposes is corruption. Cleaning the corruption up enhances the reputation of the FBI. There was no slander there was only letting her off the hook.

FACT: Privatization is just another insideous redistribution of wealth from the citizens of the USA to the Oligarchs.

It has been around for a long time and has nothing to do with anything more insidious than government officials finding the most efficient way to discharge their responsibilities. 

LIE. In private sector, it is something that did not exist before the Reaganscam made it possible for the Oligarchs to keep all the profits for themselves. In Government, it did not exist before Reagan initiated the NRAGOP drive to destroy Government Unions and give all Government functions to the private sector. There never has been an example where the privatization of a Government function resulted in better or less expensive services for the public that is being served by the function.

What didn't exist - privatization?? Carter did it. 

 

FACT: Delta Airlines did not move to GA to get tax breaks any more than any of your above has any basis in FACT.

MEANINGLESS. Delta moved to Atlanta in the 1940's BEFORE Corporations learned they could blackmail cities and states. Now their threat is to move if they don't get MORE tax breaks.

Not meaningless - it points out just one more example of "those" facts which you used to make a point and clung to ever since.
