Playtime’s Over…


Trump arraigned on election charges Mr. Trump was booked and fingerprinted before entering the courtroom this week and offering a soft-spoken “not guilty” to each of the four counts lodged against him on Tuesday by the special counsel. In addition to the election case, he faces federal charges of mishandling classified documents and accusations in New York related to hush money payments to a porn...

It’s Official: Trump Grabbed ‘er by the Pussy


The results are in & Trump is a rapist Donald has been claiming that because a jury in May found him guilty of sexual abuse, it meant he was not found guilty of rape. His legal team is drawing a distinction between the two as though they belong to separate categories and committing one precludes the other. In actuality, rape is but one subset of the broader term “sexual abuse.”...

“The Art of (Breaking) The Deal”

Instead of putting deals together, Trump finds it much easier to break them apart One thing has certainly become clear since Donald J. Trump assumed the office of the presidency: the man’s word means nothing. He’s already broken many of his own, personal campaign promises and in-office commitments, but it’s other peoples deals he enjoys blowing up the most. I mean, let’s be honest: if all you...

State Run Propaganda


Trump suggests U.S. launch it’s own TV network Gee, I wonder whether the White House would have a compelling amount of control over the new network he suggests creating. Perhaps he finally sees he may not win reelection in 2020 between his low popularity, the loss of the House and over 400 State legislature seats, and the unfavorable trajectory of the Mueller investigation. Perhaps he’s getting...

The Doctor Is In.


Trump has official government photos doctored “Trump inauguration crowd photos were edited after he intervened”The Guardian Ugh. Need I say more? This kind of thing probably shouldn’t be too surprising anymore from a White House but peddles lies, distortions and propaganda on a regular basis. I know his crowd size isn’t the most important thing in the world (besides, isn’t it the...

“Truth isn’t truth”


“1984″ is alive and well in 2018 In an unprecedented new era of falsehoods, hypocracy, and downright propaganda, it really requires something shocking to stand out amongst the noise and knock one back a step. Yesterday was one of those moments. Wow. Let’s back up a second, though, and look at a few of the other data points along the way that have led us to where we’re at today...

Welcome to the Upside Down


Stranger, Stranger, and Stranger Things What a week. Trump just declared he finally believes his own intelligence community directors that Russia is, indeed, actively trying to hack and/or manipulate our upcoming election. Just one thing – he thinks they’re rooting for the Democrats this time. Yup. You heard right. President Trump contradicting his earlier statement he does not believe Russia is...

Case of the disappearing man


Now you see him; Now you don’t! Hocus Pocus Propaganda may be alive and well in the 21st century; and not just in China and Russia but right here, “Made In America” in the good ole United States. By now, we‘re all aware foreign and domestic actors are actively and more or less continuously trying to manipulate our opinions and actions. From fake accounts, names and websites to fake news, posts...

Helsinki froze over


Right in plain sight Seems like as good a place to start a blog like this as any… Last week in Finland, Donald Trump reconfirmed to the world during a joint press conference that he is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vladimir Putin and, for once, it seemed like everyone was finally in agreement about what’s been so obvious the entire time. I didn’t have a chance to watch footage until two days after...
