AUGUST 13, 2019
ANOTHER DAY WITH ROTTEN TRUMP


22 states against weak coal rule.
https://earther.gizmodo.com/a-coalition-of-22-states-are-suing-the-trump-administra-1837211326

Trump doesn't believe in climate change. It will take another Democrat Government to change things. Until them... cough !
:smoke:


Prsidency costing him a fortune ? And jealous that Obama made millions for a book he wrote AFTER leaving office ?
As always, Trump will do his best to hide his tax report so we'll never know the Truth.
Up till then, it's only blahblah from him.
https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/457287-trump-rips-emolument-lawsuits-being-president-costing-me-a-fortune

Anyway, he'll do millions too we he'll leave. And think of the future film, and TV series,...
:P


Trump and conspiracy theories... Foolish and untrue, we all know that. Even Trump fans with half a working brain.
Why does he keep repeating those absurdities ? He may think that it keeps suspicions on others than him...
https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/donald-trump/was-retweet-trump-defends-sharing-conspiracy-theory-linking-bill-clinton-n1041841

But hard Trump fans may jerk when they hear the Liar-In_Chief.
:P


Yeah, that's an idea ! To get Trump's attention and to tell him how a scumbag he is
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/aug/13/julian-castro-fox-news-ad-blame-trump-racism-el-paso-shooting-us

Maybe they should wrap big macs when some NYT and Washington Post ?!?
It would reach him surely in his bedroom while watching FOX
:mrgreen:

Be back tomorrow hopefully...

I think most of them probably were. That still doesn't deract from the racism propounded by Trump in his statements, surely? Just because some people make racist statements, it doesn't make the racist statements of somebody else less racist. Also, in Trump's case, we're talking about frequency as well.
Pedro likes to practice "whataboutism". A false-equivilancy favorite of his. 8)



Bingo. That and also a massive dose of cognitive dissonance. Same for DB.

Here are the eleven signs of gaslighting. See how many you recognize:

1. They tell blatant lies.
2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
4. They wear you down over time.
5. Their actions do not match their words.
6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you.
7. They know confusion weakens people.
8. They project.
9. They try to align people against you.
10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.
11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.

And here's the Psychology Today article that explains all eleven:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/11-warning-signs-gaslighting

It would be fun to see Trump facing challenge from his own party.
https://www.cnn.com/videos/politics/2019/08/13/mark-sanford-donald-trump-big-storm-coming-sot-vpx-lead.cnn

Wish it's the start of a long list.
Let's be honest... anyone could do a better job than Trump !

Trump is feeling tired. He was not top shape this week.
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics/weekly-fact-check-donald-trump-21-false/index.html

He's slowing down. Only an average of 3 lies a day ? I think he shoud consult soon...

Rewriting the Statue of Liberty ?
Maybe it should have been rewritten BEFORE the Trump emigrated in USA.
https://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word/watch/the-trump-team-rewrites-the-statue-of-liberty-66039877965

USA is becoming crazy
:P

An economic policy that is a disaster... one more !

AUGUST 14, 2019
ANOTHER DAY WITH ROTTEN TRUMP


First, there's disapproval going steady, and improving
https://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/trump-s-dismal-state-by-state-job-approval-66036805512
OK, that's the GOOD news....
:mrgreen:


Now, what about some lies, about environment
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics/donald-trump-pennsylvania-speech-energy/index.html
Trump is an enenmy of environment. You should know that by now.
:P :P :P :P :P


FRANK warned us about "Plastic People". Was he aware that Trump was one of them ?
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics/plastic-trump-recycling/index.html
:P :P :P :P :P


He could have taken informations around instead of making, once again, a fool of himself...
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics/trump-blagojevich-commutation-illinois-republicans/index.html
:P :P :P :P :P


Remember:
PAY MORE , SELL LESS
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-14/trump-tariffs-to-hurt-u-s-farmers-more-than-china-counterparts

It's the work of a "Stable Genius" !!!
I pity the folks who still think Trump knows what he's doing, cause indeed he doesn't have a clue.
:P :P :P :P :P

MORE TO COME AS THE NEWS UNFOLD...

THIS IS A JOB FOR . . . STABLE GENIUS !!!

Always a pleasure to read about the "STABLE GENIUS" failures in Economy
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-08-14/trump-faces-election-reality-on-trade-war-pain

Recession anyone ?
:mrgreen: :P

Just glad he's not in charge of Canada's economy !
It's not really that good but it would be worse !! We'd go bankrupt.

OK, OK, I admit it ! I have a burst of laughter when I read about the damage done by "STABLE GENIUS".
Couldn't resist that one...
https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/14/politics/2020-election-trump-recession-risk/index.html

Pedro, please, stop bursting your head against the wall !
There's nothing you can do to stop Trump, and nothing you can say to excuse him. Understand ?

Meanwhile, in my secret location, I'm having a ball.
:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

PS: I sincerely feel sorry for the REAL Americans. They don't deserve the effects of bad policies from a real bad President.
:( :( :( :( :(
I know you folks deserve way much better. Let's hope 2020 will put an end to that madness.
There's still some hope

Well the farmers are finally realizing that he is an idiot and has no idea how to make a deal much less not screw everything up, one group down several to go, we can never expect 3 groups to come around;

1.) The white supremacists - for obvious reason (we don't want them anyway)

2.) The hard core religious people - they believe he will start Armageddon war and the second coming of Jesus (BTW Pence is all in with that crowd and if Cheat-O got jacked out Pence may push the button to fulfill his perceived destiny)

3.) The Conspiracy Heads - Face it no matter what happens it ends up being a conspiracy.

But you can fathom all of us being dirt poor instead. Because if you've studied history (?!), that's what actually happens when socialism is implemented!!! :shock:

The problem punknaynowned is that Americans can't make the difference between socialism and communism.
A lot think it's the same.
In a speech, a politician just have to say the word "socialist" and a lot of ordinary folks will picture
a regime à la USSR.
Victims of their own uneducation.

Some solialist politics are good. Like I wouldn't want to pay each time I go to the Hospital.
Health is not a luxury.

10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.

And here's the Psychology Today article that explains all eleven:

https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/11-warning-signs-gaslighting


Examples being...
1. They tell blatant lies.
Quote:
YOU were the one that stated a few months back, "Socialism is the future."

Quote:
You damn well know you said, "Socialism is the future."

Quote:
the reason why I haven't posted your quote is simply because I can't find it or that you deleted it.


2. They deny they ever said something, even though you have proof.
Quote:
I NEVER said FZ was strictly libertarian

Quote:
"...I'm absolutely a Libertarian on MANY issues..." ~ Frank Zappa, Rochester, NY, March 11, 1988


3. They use what is near and dear to you as ammunition.
Quote:
Maybe if you learn to speak and write English properly, you'll start to make sense?


4. They wear you down over time.
Quote:
ONE.MORE.TIME.FOR.THE.WORLD


5. Their actions do not match their words.
Quote:
More ad hominem attacks without ANY evidence, explanation or argument to the contrary. What a HUGE surprise

Quote:
Go die in a bus fire, you liberal moron


6. They throw in positive reinforcement to confuse you. (a difficult one, this)
Quote:
Even though I already know all about the important details discussed from the link in question, thanks for posting it.


7. They know confusion weakens people.
Quote:
The labor force participation rate remained at a 36-year low of 62.8 percent

Quote:
more positively consistent monthly labor force participation rates (as of May 2019, 62.8%) than most months Obama was in office


8. They project.
Quote:
from someone who thinks that, "Socialism is the future."


9. They try to align people against you.
Quote:
there are other conservatives here, beside pedro1 and myself (it's just that they don't post often, nor do over 95% of the Z forum members)


10. They tell you or others that you are crazy.
Quote:
Your bat-shit-fucking-crazy liberal friends and you constantly create narratives that contain ZERO proof, evidence, logic or FACTS.


11. They tell you everyone else is a liar.
Quote:
That's the majority of this very forum. Oh, the irony...
