This is not a Trump propaganda blog

with 39 comments

Some commenters seem to think I have some responsibility to only blog about Trump in a favorable light.

Well this blog has always been about the TRUTH and not about propagandizing. (Although I’d be willing to become a Trump propaganda blog if someone was willing to pay me a decent income for doing that. See, total honesty! But so far, no one from the Trump transition has asked me to work for them in any capacity at all.)

For example, I never tried to defend Trump “University,” which was always viewed here as an indefensible scam business (but of course never a reason to vote against Trump who is our only hope of stopping illegal immigration which is destroying our country).

I’ve also always said that my ideal president would have Trump’s views on immigration, Bernie’s views on taxes, and have Mitt Romney’s demeanor. But it’s not likely that guy would have been elected. For starters, the proles don’t like Romney and it has nothing to do with his views on immigration or the Iraq war. The very demeanor that I like turns off the proles, and you need the prole vote to get elected.

Regarding Barron, he probably has some sort of developmental or learning disability, which is probably autism. Just my conclusion based on all of the evidence available to me (which includes additional private evidence beyond what’s publicly available online), made suddenly relevant and worth a blog post because it was tweeted by Rosie O’Donnell who has almost a million followers, and has been mentioned by many news sources (but notably none of the major leading news sources such as CNN, the New York Times or the Washington Post because this is seen as a story that puts liberal Rosie O’Donnell in a bad light and makes people feel sympathy for Trump).

The goal of my blog is to uncover truth. Learn to deal with the truth.

  3. You will find the propaganda you’re speaking about in a very dense way in this parodical sketch :

    NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Speaking to reporters late Friday night, President-elect Donald Trump revealed that he had Googled Obamacare for the first time earlier in the day.

    “I Googled it, and, I must say, I was surprised,” he said. “There was a lot in it that really made sense, to be honest.”

    He said that he regretted that the frenetic pace of the presidential campaign had prevented him from Googling Obamacare earlier. “You’re always running, running, running,” he said. “There were so many times that I made a mental note to Google Obamacare but I just never got around to it.”

    Trump also told the reporters that, now that the campaign was over, he had finally found the time to Google Mexico.

    “Really eye-opening,” he said. “A lot of the Mexicans are terrific. They do just terrific things.”

    When asked if Googling Mexico had affected his position on building a wall, Trump said, “Quite frankly, it did make me wonder a bit about that. A lot of these terrific Mexicans could come in and make a real contribution to our country and, in exchange, I think they’d really benefit from Obamacare.”

    The President-elect also said that he had put Mike Pence in charge of the transition team “to give me more time for my conversion to Islam.”

    Andy Borowitz is a New York Times best-selling author and a comedian who has written for The New Yorker since 1998. He writes the Borowitz Report for newyorker.com.

    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Fulfilling a promise that was a hallmark of his campaign, President-elect Donald J. Trump said on Thursday that on Day One of his Administration he would create jobs for two unskilled white males.

    Appearing at a press conference flanked by the males, Trump assailed an economy that had left the two men behind.

    “These two guys are completely unskilled, unemployable, and angry,” Trump said, as the two males glowered at the press corps. “I, and I alone, can create jobs for people like them.”

    Gesturing vehemently at the two men, Trump underlined his last point. “No one—I repeat, no one—but me is willing to give these two jobs,” he said.

    The two unskilled men profusely thanked Trump, and said that they had almost given up hope that anyone would ever hire them again.

    Appearing on CNN, another unskilled white male, Corey Lewandowski, said that the two jobs Trump had created were “just the beginning.”

    “Almost everyone Donald Trump knows is an angry, unskilled white male, and he’s going to give jobs to every last one of them,” he said.

    • That’s just not funny. I agree 100% about obamacare but it’s just not funny.

      It’s also not accurate he really said he wanted to keep certain elements of obamacare (even if what he proposed is almost certainly going to be worse) and he spent way more time during the campaign talking about how great Hispanics were than saying anything negative.

  5. LOL, I won’t take anything personally.🙂

    I’m glad this isn’t a Trump propaganda blog. I liked your stuff on Trump U., and I agree w/you about Trump’s demeanor and his challenged ability to describe his own positions.

    But I’m not a Lion dittohead, and I think that your take on Barron is wrong. Also, your take on why the press isn’t covering this. It’s not out of solicitude for Rosie. She’s not loved. This has nothing to do with the fact that she’s on “their” side. There is just a gentleman’s agreement to leave the kids alone. Why you don’t get this, I don’t get.

    • I do understand there’s a gentleman’s agreement not to speak ill of people’s children, I mentioned that, but I’m not the mainstream media, and I’m not introducing the issue but adding to the conversation, and conservatives had mean things to say about Chelsea before she turned 18 and mean things to say about Obama’s children as well as Obama’s wife.

      • I think Obama’s children were largely spared from mean words, at least up until last summer when one of them smoked marijuana. But that was in the middle of the election, so she didn’t get much more than a few jokes at her expense.

        Michelle Obama was seldom criticized by the mainstream right, but there were some mean things said about her in our corner of the net (such as Heartiste).

        I was too young and wasn’t paying close enough attention to remember how Chelsea was treated. I thought she was fair game during the election because of how closely involved she was with the campaign and the Foundation.

        Personally, I think it’s fair to criticize Trump’s three oldest children because they’re successful adults and have been a key part of the campaign. Tiffany is a young adult and hasn’t been very public for the most part, so I think it’s unfair to drag her in unless she becomes more involved with his administration (which seems unlikely – who cares about what a young college grad thinks?)

        I don’t think it’s fair for major outlets to talk about Barron, but it’s fun to speculate about him on blogs like this.

      • A lot of Trump supporters will be marching on government institutions if Hillary somehow wins a recount. What’s more is that 70% or so of law enforcement officers and soldiers voted for Trump. As Mao said, “Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun,” and the people holding guns like Trump.

      • “A lot of Trump supporters will be marching on government institutions if Hillary somehow wins a recount.”

        It will be a lot worse than just marching on government. If they actually do a recount and Hillary’s numbers magically go up, it’s going to look a lot like election fraud. This is the sort of thing that could tear this country apart.

      • Yes. Which makes it doubly stupid to say that this is about ensuring trust.

        I was wrong about Hillary. I always thought of her as one of those controlled, play it close to the vest card players. Her behavior in the last weeks has revealed her as unstable. She began to go crazy when she was Sec State. Imagine going on TV and saying, “We came, we saw, he died..” and laughing about it. That shows unbelievable hubris but also a basic lack of control.

      • My guess isbthe recount effort will fail. I can understand Jill Stein pulling a stunt like this, because she’s batshit crazy, but it’s a major mistake for the Democrats to join in. Maybe it’s true, Hillary really is batshit crazy.

      • “If they actually do a recount and Hillary’s numbers magically go up, it’s going to look a lot like election fraud. This is the sort of thing that could tear this country apart.”

        After the election, the left took the streets and cried. If Hillary magically wins a recount, Trump supporters will take the streets and demand Trump be given the presidency. The police won’t do much of anything to stop them. US soldiers will refuse to step in and stop it. More and more centers of power will declare their solidarity with the Trump protesters.

        In the end, the American left can only get away with what they do because America’s gun owners, police officers and soldiers have agreed to play by the rules. If the people holding guns believe the rules are gone, they will step in and take over.

        “I was wrong about Hillary. I always thought of her as one of those controlled, play it close to the vest card players. Her behavior in the last weeks has revealed her as unstable.”

        I think she’s a high functioning alcoholic. You can get away with that for awhile, but by the time you’re 69, years of hard drinking will have taken their toll. She also clearly suffered major brain damage in December 2012 when she collapsed. When you see old videos of her as Secretary of State, she looked a lot leaner, more active, and altogether sharper than she did during the campaign. She also collapsed at the 9/11 event this year, which suggests she’s suffering from a worsening neurological illness.

        “I can understand Jill Stein pulling a stunt like this, because she’s batshit crazy, but it’s a major mistake for the Democrats to join in. Maybe it’s true, Hillary really is batshit crazy.”

        I agree with the theory that Jill Stein wants to regain street cred within the left after running a faintly pro-Trump campaign. It’s also likely that the recount is a scam to get the Green Party some cash.

        It sounds like Obama has recognized that Trump won fair and square, and is urging the Democrats to keep their cool. I think part of him is glad that the Clintons are just about terminated, so he can be the de facto head of the Democratic Party and its chief power broker until Q4 2019 or so.

    • Trump University was a real estate course founded during an industry boom period. Nothing criminal occurred and the complaints were litigated. You can’t satisfy everybody. The settlement was a mistake and will only embolden future attacks. It also undermined Trump’s claim that the lawsuit was politically motivated. Despite that these people were grown adults who knew what they were signing up for and Trump should have fought this all the way but instead opted for a generous settlement without admitting any wrongdoing. Trump University still exists but is now called the Trump Entrepreneur Initiative. On Twitter Trump said one of his regrets about being president elect was that he didn’t have enough time to successfully win the Trump U lawsuit. Kinda hard to believe that a series of courses established by billionaire and president could be of so little value to some but it’s their loss.

      • How were these courses at worst any different from your run of the mill Tony Robbins or Eckhart Tolle or even a PUA seminar?

        Probably because with real estate you can actually measure before and after success whereas Robbins and Tolle and PUA is just some ephemeral subjective standard of how self actualized you are.

        Admittedly with pick up there is at least the element of your notch count, but even then it’s hard to de-trend how much a seminar helped you versus what would be your natural progression. Trump U probably didn’t emphasize enough that any failures are your own. That’s how the Robbins and PUA shysters do it.

  6. There were no autistic kids when I grew up in the 60s and 70s. There were weird kids and most of them grew out of their weirdness, and a few remained weird permanently. Barron will likely grow out of whatever minor psychological condition he is afflicted with.

    That said, I think weird kids are more common to men who father late in life.

  7. Rosie O’Donnell is an asshole to have tweeted that. If the boy is autistic that is not anyone’s business.

    JFK’s sister was mentally retarded. From the time JFK was a boy his rich, powerful family went to great lengths to hide his sister’s problem. Including the infamous lobotomy. But sometime in the 60’s the story came out and it became respectable.

    I wonder why Trump seems like a prole but the Kennedys seemed like royalty. Joseph Kennedy was a businessman who became fabulously wealthy, and had been accused of corruption, etc.

    Is it just because Trump likes gaudy interior decorating and has funny hair?

    • That’s an excellent question. I wish I’d thought of it myself, especially since I was alive for the Kennedy rapture or whatever you want to call it. I think the proximate answer must be that the Left is no longer Arthur Schlesinger and Edward R. Burrow. In other words, fairness is passe. But anyway, to complete the argument, Trump was just as good looking as JFK at a similar age, handsomer in fact. And Joe Kennedy made his nut illegally, right? Running liquor from Canada during Prohibition?

    • Rosemary Kennedy was mildly retarded. Today she would have been integrated in normal schools, on the track for slower, mildly retarded kids. What her mother and father did to her was unconscionable. They feared that as a young, not unattractive woman she would get seduced by some rascal and become pregnant. An absolute horror for a strict (for the girls, that is. Lads are expected to be lads) Roman Catholic family. They believed that a lobotomy was preferable to this eventuality.

  9. Cuckstate article talks about how Trump’s victory has changed the Republican party: http://www.redstate.com/diary/pjensen66/2016/11/25/big-tent-returns-gop/

    I think this article exaggerates the magnitude of Trump’s victory, but not it’s effect.

    While there will always be some #NeverTrump holdouts, Trump’s electoral victory has destroyed #NeverTrump as a movement. The annihilation of the TruCons and the Cuckservitives is complete.

    When we embarked on this war of endless annihilation a year and a half ago, we had the following staged goals:

    stage 1: Destruction of the TruCons and Cuckservatives
    stage 2: Destruction of the immigrant community
    stage 3: Final destruction of liberalism

    We have already completed stage 1. Now we must work to ruthlessly annihilate the immigrant community. The final destruction of liberalism will not be possible until after Trump is re-elected, however.

    After the immigrants have been destroyed, here is my proposed plan for the final destruction of liberalism:

    1. Massive voter suppression laws. Put all the Dem GOTV operatives in jail. Unions that refuse or fail to deliver votes from Republicans must be dissolved and their leaders imprisoned. Voting stations in minority areas must be drastically reduced with the goal of increasing wait times to vote by at least a factor of 3.

    2. States should be won by electoral colleges that disproportionately reward rural and suburban areas at the expense of cities

    3. States should be given extra EVs based on land area. WV and VA should be reunited. Inland NY, CA, WA and OR should be broken off into their own states.

    4. Import another 50 million whites but don’t allow anyone else in. This plus assimilation of non black minorities will return our population to 90% white.

    5. End all welfare and promote free birth control and abortions. Without welfare, the black and hispanic populations will utterly collapse. Encouraging birth control and abortion will also help.
