Fake News And Real News



This just in!

Wasn’t that great news we learned from the House Oversight Committee hearing? 

No, not from Cohen. He’s a liar. So what if he lied to protect Trump? After he admitted it, and expressed shame and remorse, the Republicans repeatedly reminded him he was a liar. They were righteously upset about Cohen the rat telling lies. I get angry just thinking about it, don't you?

That's all we needed to hear.

But that’s not the big news.

The big news is "non-racist" Republican Mark Meadows PROVED Birther Trump is not a racist! 

We knew it all along!

That’s right. By producing one silent prop, an unqualified black woman who works for "non-racist" Birther Trump, he proved "non-racist" Birther Trump can’t possibly be a racist.

When his stunt was called out by some nasty woman of color, "non-racist" Meadows got angry. As he should have, because as an angry white Republican, HE was the real victim of racism.

And of course, the nasty woman of color was the real racist. The highly offended "non-racist" Meadows raged, “It’s racist to suggest I asked her to come in here for that reason!”

He should know. "Non-Racist" Birther candidate Mark Meadows told crowds, “We're Going to Send Obama Home to Kenya”.

So there you go. Cohen LIED about "non-racist" Birther Trump being a racist. 

That’s settled. 

Why don’t those racist Democrats get out of the way and let "non-racist" Birther Trump make America great again?

That’s the real news.

Don’t get distracted by all those revelations of election campaign felonies, bank fraud, insurance fraud, charity foundation fraud, Moscow Trump Tower negotiations during the campaign, foreknowledge of wiki email dumps, and foreknowledge of a Trump Tower meeting with Russian agents.

Pay no attention to all that trivial, boring, fake news from the enemy of the people.

There may be even bigger news from the Hanoi meeting between the North Korean dictator and the "non-racist" Tangerine Tyrant.  

A tremendous deal is in the making.

If all goes as planned, we just might have the groundwork in place for a Pyongyang Trump Tower!

Do you feel the love yet?

But that’s not all. "Non-racist" Trump's beloved new friend will be getting a fantastic deal!  In addition to a generous commission for the Pyongyang Trump Tower, Kim will be appointed a special place of honor. 

We are extremely happy to report that Kim Jong Un will be named our new Director of National Intelligence. 

You read it here first. MAGA! MAGA!

LOL

Do ya' think the "non-racist birther" Mark Meadows was pissed for being called out on his prop show? LOL

And of course, at this early hour on the east coast, the news of Trump's lovefest blowing up in Hanoi is the talk of the town.

Oh well, Trump and Kim have called off their engagement.

"I am ashamed that I chose to take part in concealing Mr Trump’s illicit acts rather than listening to my own conscience. I am ashamed because I know what Mr Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat." ~~ Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer and fixer, in testimony before House Oversight committee, February 27, 2019

"The country has seen Mr Trump court white supremacists and bigots. You have heard him call poorer countries shitholes. In private, he is even worse." ~~ Michael Cohen, Trump's lawyer and fixer, in testimony before House Oversight Committee, February 27, 2019

In private, he's even worse? Wow!

TB3 said...

I watched nearly all of that hours-long hearing with Cohen. I found it remarkable that nearly every Republican hit on the same points. Cohen as a liar and looking to profit off of this time with the President. As if those things had any bearing on anything. As a tactic to discredit Cohen, I think it fell flat. The man plead guilty to lieing to Congress and he's already slated to go to jail. Hammering him on his lies in the past was a waste of time. Considering they were doing in an effort to do exactly for the reason Cohen lied in the first place; to defend the President.

Also- Of course he's going to write a book one day and do TV interviews after his time in jail. One wonders what these Republicans think of a similar figure who also did bad things to defend their President: Oliver North.

Just the Facts! said...

Other than learning a southern GOP Congressman is not a racist there were other interesting things learned. From Cohen we found out:

Been to Prague? NO
Russian collusion? NOPE
Trump physically assaulting Melania? NO
Love child? NONE
Paid for any abortions? NEGATIVE
Drugs? NEVER
Any racist comments on tape? NONE

From Cohen we learned.

Congressman Glenn Grothman(R): “Do you expect, anytime, using this testimony, other testimony, after you get done doing whatever you are going to do this week. Do you ever expect to go back and ask for any sort of reduction in sentence?”

Michael Cohen: “Yes”

Isn't odd that the left who has been claiming President Trump has committed impeachable crimes are now reduced to accepting the word of a convicted liar that Mr. Trump said racist things? What does this say about the Democrats and what they said about Mr. Obama before he became President?

Since saying racist things are bad, is wearing black face bad? Like the Democrat leadership of Virginia has been proven to have done.

KARMA.

No.

Not "reduced to", Vern.

It's more like "in addition to", wouldn't you say?

U.P. Tim said...

All I've got to say is the hearing was a Republicon freak show. They are nothing but a bunch of clowns trying to defend an evil person. It almost made me puke.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Vern, do you know the difference between Michael Cohen and Donald Trump?

One is a convicted liar, the other isn't convicted...yet.

Be patient. His day will come.

Dave Dubya said...

JTF Declares:

From Cohen we found out: Been to Prague? NO Russian collusion? NOPE Trump physically assaulting Melania? NO Love child? NONE Paid for any abortions? NEGATIVE Drugs? NEVER Any racist comments on tape? NONE

Look who's "now reduced to accepting the word of a convicted liar."

So JTF agrees with us that Cohen needed to be honest in his sworn testimony. To avoid more prison time Cohen had to tell the truth.

Excellent.

I feel so happy we share common ground with our fellow supporter of socialized retirement and public health programs.

I'm a uniter, not a divider.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

LOLOL

Sounds like Vern is accepting of what Michael Cohen, "the convicted liar", has to say only when it fits his own narrative.

LOLOL

Dave Dubya said...

Tim,
I'd say evil House clowns were deflecting for the evil clown in the White House.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

...meanwhile, while his Hanoi trip burns in flames, the mobster-in-chief cries about being upstaged by the Cohen chronicles and lectures about how so many people don't know the meaning of the word denuclearization -- like him!

LOL

What a douche bag... [head shaking]

TB3 said...

"Look who's "now reduced to accepting the word of a convicted liar." - DD

I noticed this about JTF as well. I laughed out loud when I read their comment. Cohen is Schroedinger's Witness to certain people. He's a known liar (this is rich considering the President, but I digress) so everything he has said and will ever say should be dismissed. He's also a credible witness to refute all the claims made against the President. So we shouldn't listen to him, except for when we think he refutes the negative accusations against the President.

What also made me laugh about JTF's comment is that they most assuredly did not even watch the hearing or listen to the questioning or Cohen's responses. Wherever they regurgitated those talkings points from could have said that Cohen arrived at the hearing on a Rickshaw being pulled by Speaker Pelosi and Leader Schumer and they'd believe it.

Dave Dubya said...

It was fun while it lasted, but we probably won't be getting any more contributions from JTF on this topic. Back to copy and paste.

We just know he hates liars, and believes them, so it's all good. ;-)

TB3 said...

Simultaneously hates lying liars and the lies they tell, and worships lying liars and the lies they tell that give them the warm fuzzies.

It'd be pretty funny if it wasn't such a pathetic way to live one's life.

Dave Dubya said...

TB3,

Cohen said it was like a cult

Being in a cult is pathetic to outsiders who value having a conscience and thinking for themselves. But cults are all about warm fuzzies, and hate for all the "liars" outside their safe place.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"...we probably won't be getting any more contributions from JTF on this topic. Back to copy and paste." ~~ Dave Dubya

LOL

It substantiates, Dave, what you've been saying all along -- Vern's a true-blue loyalist to the cult.

Being a cultist, he's incapable of independent critical thought. All he can do is copy, verbatim, other's words and ideas, and then regurgitate them.

I'm going to wager a bet that Vern's been begging you to let him comment if he promises to behave, but the old boy just can't keep his mouth shut.

Like his stupid-ass president, he's such a man-child. [snicker]

Dave Dubya said...

I drew a line. Vern wasted a lot of keyboard time calling me an "authoritarian" for refusing to let him continue addressing me by a Klansman's name. Yes, he whined, like the victim he always sees in himself.

At least we agree that Cohen told the truth, and that we support social security and healthcare programs. As with homophobia, deep anger towards socialism often hides a secret desire for it.

He can come out of his closet(s) anytime here. We welcome him.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

I recall when Tom Degan shut him down. Vern begged him to allow his commenting to resume. Tom relented, unfortunately.

He's definitely a closet-queen, always getting turned on by me when he thought I was gay. It took some of the wind out of his sails when I revealed I'm not.

So we know about his psycho-sexual leanings because he's revealed that side of himself. Now, I wonder why he's not forthcoming about his partaking of the government handouts he receives via "socialist programs" such as Social Security and Medicare? Maybe there are some VA benefits thrown in there, too?

You'd think he was being asked about his most secret fantasy. ;-)

Dave Dubya said...

JTF has never criticized Social Security or Medicare. He agrees they are good. His problem is he reveres Trump, white nationalists, and authoritarians, and hates anyone not in his cult.

We tend towards democratic socialism while he tends towards national socialism. I think that is what distinguishes us.

Just the Facts! said...

What about the babies that survive abortion? How come they can’t have healthcare?

Dave Dubya said...

Fake questions.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"We tend towards democratic socialism while [Vern] tends towards national socialism." ~~ Dave Dubya

In other words, Vern's a true-blue fascist and a Nazi in the making. It suits him just fine.

I wonder when he and "other fine people" plan to march on Charlottsville again?

Dave Dubya said...

JG,


Speaking of JTF's fellow "very fine people"...


https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/02/us/black-president-nazi-group/index.html

Black man becomes head of neo-Nazi group he intends to destroy

(CNN)Call it a clever twist of fate, a shrewd power play, or simply comeuppance for one of the largest neo-Nazi groups in America.

Its new president is a black man — a California pastor and activist — with one goal in mind.

"Change it, reverse it, and ultimately destroy it," James Hart Stern told CNN in an interview Friday.

Stern says the former president of the Detroit-based National Socialist Movement, Jeff Schoep, turned the group over to him amid infighting by the group's core members, and to escape the threat of a lawsuit filed against NSM for its alleged role in the violent 2017 clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia.

The NSM and Schoep, along with more than 20 other organizations and individuals including convicted murderer James Alex Fields, are being sued civilly by victims who were injured at Charlottesville.

The lawsuit says, "The violence, suffering, and emotional distress that occurred in Charlottesville was a direct, intended, and foreseeable result of Defendants' unlawful conspiracy."

Schoep claims he was "deceived" by Stern.


The Karmic wheel turns. Soon it will turn on the white nationalist in the White House.

Indeed. 2019 will certainly go down as the year the shit hit the fan. The escalation begins.

Did you see outtakes of Trump's marathon, off-script, "speech" at CPAC yesterday? He's definitely lost his marbles.

Reminds me of Hitler's meandering divisive speeches where he'd whip up the mobs into a frenzy. The methodology is exactly the same.

I have the sinking feeling things are going to go south really quickly now.

He's a danger to all Americans. All.

As the BRICS nations develop competing currencies, the once lofty strength of the U.S. Dollar as the reserve currancy of the world will tumble into oblivian.

We're watching, in real-time, the economic superiority of the United States collapse right before our eyes.

The 2020s will see America's fall from grace. No longer will we be considered the economic powerhouse we were in the last part of the 20th century.

The shift is in motion.

It'll never happen. He has drunk the kool-aid.

He'll pay for it in Hell.

But first he'll pay for it here, if the old coot lives long enough. Certainly his children, and their children, will suffer in future years due to the inaction of con-servatives on climate change, for example, and the horrid policies of the mobster-in-chief's administration, in particular.

Dark days are looming for this country.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

Just watched the White Fascism vid. Lots of information. Too bad alt-right racists like Vern will never watch it. Guess they don't want to have to acknowledge they'll be excluded -- not be part of the "us" -- as the pyramid grows thinner.

They never do. ;-)

If I taught sociology, this would be required viewing.

Thanks for sharing...

Dave Dubya said...

What con-servatives fear, and why they MUST cling to ignorance.

Another good presentation:

Debunked: "Socialism Has Never Worked"

Socialism is NOT Marxism or Communism. Cons will always maintain their willful ignorance of this fact.

Anarcho syndicalism and social democracies have proven to work, by providing education, a higher standard of living, and better healthcare. Socialistic programs are compatible with regulated capitalism. In fact they are vital to protect from abuses by the power of authoritarian economic elites.

Sorry, JTF. Your cult prohibits you from learning these facts.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"Socialism is NOT Marxism or Communism. Cons will always maintain their willful ignorance of this fact." ~~ Dave Dubya

It's a con-servative talking point that's losing traction. The wealthy, and multinational corporations, have benefited from socialism for decades. They just don't want commoners to do the same.

For example, the knucklehead-in-chief is relying on socialism when he compensates his base, many whom are farmers, from losing their businesses/livelihoods because of Trump's tariff war.

Trump's stupid, but not stupid enough that he doesn't know this is socialism when he proclaims "there will never be socialism in America". What he really means is there will never be socialism for his ignorant base. He's, of course, excluding the aforementioned groups who have been sucking up government subsidies (i.e. "socialism") forever.

Poor old Vern just can't stand to acknowledge this. ;-)

Dave Dubya said...

Poor Vern's just too busy whining, "Keep government out of my Medicare! You damn socialists!"

That thar's cammanism.

Jefferson's Guardian said...

"That thar's cammanism. ~~ Dave Dubya

Well, I guess if Vern wants to call the government program keeping his decrepit body alive, "cammanism", that's the illogical reality he chooses to live in.

If so, Vern must also acknowledge that he's a card-carrying "cammanist".

Somebody's going to have to explain to me how Ilhan Omar's recent remarks can be even remotely construed to be anti-semitic.

Anti-rightwing Israeli government, sure, but anti-Jewish?

No way.

Dave Dubya said...

The Right has successfully conflated and equated criticism of AIPAC and the Israeli far Right with antisemitism. They found an emotional trigger that gives them a wedge they can employ to divide gullible and uninformed Christians, and foment more divisive political correctness among sensitive liberals and Jews.

AIPAC's powerful influence and the free speech-suppressing anti-boycott laws have already infiltrated into our legal system.

The US has become a battleground for foreign influences. The primary contest is between Israeli far Right factions and Putin. Every despot is "playing the dotard" with Trump. Each are winning what we are losing.

Meanwhile China's working all sides.

World powers know we are a crumbling empire and are moving in like vultures. Like Cheney did in Iraq and like the Trump Cartel wants to do in Venezuela. There's no doubt oily politicians and their corporate bosses are drawing up their claims for Venezuela like Cheney's task force did for Iraq.

We are in for a taste of our own medicine.

How's that for new spin on nationalist paranoia?

No wonder all these authoritarian powers want to suppress democracy, especially ours. It pays well.

The Right has been feverishly ramping up their hate. Now everyone outside their cult "hates America". It's the inevitable nature of fascism and cults.

This is getting frighteningly close to Hitler's dream. He would be so proud of Trump, and Trump would be in so love with Adolf.

The sickos think opposing a crooked, hateful, racist, evil liar is hating America. This shows us they not only support evil, they ARE evil.

National Socialism has taken our country. The tragedy is we need the few sane conservatives and honest republicans to eradicate the evil. Will they show the guts and decency and patriotism to help us remove the Tangerine Tyrant?

"Rep. Omar's comments were wrong and she has proven multiple times that she embodies a vile, hate-filled, anti-Semitic, anti-Israel bigotry. She deserves to be rebuked, by name, and removed from the House Foreign Affairs Committee so that there is no mistake about the values and priorities that the House stands for.

For Democratic leadership to kowtow to their radical members and refuse to offer legislative language that criticizes Rep. Omar's statements in the strongest possible manner confirms what we already knew: that their party is controlled by far-left extremists who can't even muster the courage to stand up to blatant anti-Semitism.
" ~~ Rep. Liz Cheney (WY), one of 23 Republicans who refused to vote 'yes' in anti-hate resolution, March 7, 2019

Once again, I could not determine where any of Ilhan Omar's remarks, at any time, could be even remotely interpreted as anti-semitic in any way.

Anti-rightwing, Netanyahu government in Israel, yes, but not anti-semitic.

This isn't even quibbling over shades of nuance. Not even close.

Republicans, as usual, are totally disingenuous -- and they know it -- just as corporatist Democrats were initially when this story unfolded.

Is more evidence needed to show that the tail wags the dog?

Tell T. Paine we need Carrie, the Israel and Middle East expert, to sort this one out. ;-)

Now SHE gets to be more Jewish than Bernie? She's just evil. No other word fits her and her father and the Party of Trump. If White Nationalist Liz Cheney cared about Jews, she would be demanding the resignation of her fellow national socialist Steve King.
