A resume of why Trump must be impeached
https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2019/oct/17/trump-autocrat-congress-judiciary-democracy

If Americans let him has his ways, they can say Bye-Bye to Democracy.
The path Trump is riding is the same path dictators took in History so far.
You have to wear solid pink glasses or be as stupid as DB to even think that Trump is the leader USA needs.

Trump is THE test for Democratic institutions. If they fail, USA fails too...
:P

The story of a man who had to choose
https://globalnews.ca/news/6041824/pompeo-aide-testifies-ukraine-trump-impeachment/

"Michael McKinley, a career foreign service officer and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo‘s de facto chief of staff, told investigators behind closed doors that he could no longer look the other way amid the Trump administration’s dealings with Ukraine, which were among the reasons he ended his 37-year career last week"

The choice is either the good or the evil.
He did the right thing. Up to the Americans to do the same.

Very divided this country. trump packs a Texas arena, yet his support in Texas is running slightly under 50%. He is really enjoying his 40%. The sociopath personality seems to want people to love him. Well, those thug leaders like Putin really do not love him. Erdogan either.

Erdogan condemns Trump letter: 'We haven't forgotten'
Trump had warned Turkey's leader to not be a "fool" or "tough guy."

https://www.politico.com/news/2019/10/18/erdogan-trump-turkey-syria-050796

By ABBEY MARSHALL
10/18/2019 11:55 AM EDT

President Donald Trump’s threatening letter in which he urged Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to not be a “fool” or a “tough guy” was not well-received, with Erdogan on Friday condemning the message as undiplomatic and saying, “We haven’t forgotten it.”

“President Trump’s letter, which did not go hand in hand with political and diplomatic courtesy, has appeared in the media,” Erdogan said Friday during a news conference about the Syria-Turkey cease-fire deal, according to a translation. “Of course we haven’t forgotten it. It would not be right for us to forget it.”

The Oct. 9 letter demanded that Erdogan call off his invasion of northern Syria, warning that he would be viewed as “the devil” in history if “good things don’t happen.” It came after Trump had already received bipartisan and widespread backlash for pulling U.S. troops out of the region, smoothing the way for the incursion.

“Let’s work out a good deal!” Trump penned. “You don’t want to be responsible for slaughtering thousands of people, and I don’t want to be responsible for destroying the Turkish economy — and I will.”

Trump’s threats referred to sanctions the Treasury Department previously imposed on senior Turkish officials for the detention of an American evangelical clergyman.

Erdogan reportedly threw the letter in the trash upon receiving it.

“For our relationship, there’s no point to dwell on this letter,” Erdogan told reporters on Friday. “This is not a priority for us, but when the time comes, we would like it to be known that we will take the necessary steps.”

He did not elaborate on what those steps would be.

“I hope history will not record this letter,” Serdar Kilic, Turkey’s ambassador to the U.S., said Thursday on “PBS NewsHour.” He maintained the letter should never have been sent because “it lacks all the niceties, and it’s void of any established practices in that regard.”

The Pee Tape was confirmed indirectly by the Mueller investigation where they found communications from Russia that relayed back to Cheat-O that a Russia "Friend" had obtained the "compromising" "Tape" and that he would keep it from being published...Hmm... :idea:

Considering Epstein, someone who ran a pedophile child trafficking ring out of Trump tower while he was living there, died in custody on Trump's watch, the tapes are most likely of Trump raping a child.

Oh, and btw, Disco Dumbfuk IS fake news. Every damn thing he posts is fake news....going all the way back to Ron Paul's 10 million votes. He so fucking stupid it's a waste of time to engage brainwashed racist dumb fucks like he and pedro. Fuck those stupid brainwashed cultist racist assholes.

The art of the boast: Donald Trump's a master
JILL COLVIN·18:44, Oct 19 2019

It's never just a deal.

US President Donald Trump's penchant for overselling his accomplishments has been on vivid display in recent days as he hailed his Syria cease-fire as a boon for civilisation and claimed his trade agreement with China was the biggest ever. The economy is the "greatest" "in the history of our Country", the military is the "most powerful" it has ever been, regulations have been cut at record rates, and, in his telling, America is "winning, winning, winning" like never before.

Trump has been a master of the art of exaggeration for decades, as he famously explained in his 1987 book, The Art of the Deal.

"People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular," he wrote. "I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration, and a very effective form of promotion."

A search of Trump's Twitter feed turns up more than 1200 mentions of the words "biggest," "best" and "smartest".

Critics, for their part, accuse him of creating problems in order to solve them - essentially setting fires and then demanding credit for putting them out.

Here's a look at some recent inflated claims.

A search of Trump's Twitter feed turns up more than 1200 mentions of the words "biggest," "best" and "smartest".

THE SYRIA CEASE-FIRE

Trump made big news when he announced that Vice President Mike Pence and other top administration officials had secured a five-day cease-fire deal with Turkey in northeast Syria - something Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had said he wouldn't do.

Trump quickly took credit, insisting his "unconventional approach" - including a pullback of US. troops that paved the way for a Turkish invasion targeting Syrian Kurds - was responsible.

Rather than bemoaning the loss of life that resulted, Trump spent much of Thursday minimising the carnage and hailing the deal in epic proportions.

"It's really a great day for civilisation," Trump said. He insisted that because of his intervention, "millions of lives will be saved."

"What Turkey is getting now is they're not going to have to kill millions of people, and millions of people aren't going to have to kill them," Trump said. In all, over the more than eight years of Syria's devastating civil war, hundreds of thousands have been killed.

THE CHINA DEAL

Trump last week announced with great fanfare a reprieve in the US-China trade war that has resulted in tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of goods.

"The deal I just made with China is, by far, the greatest and biggest deal ever made for our Great Patriot Farmers in the history of our Country," Trump tweeted the day after. "In fact, there is a question as to whether or not this much product can be produced? Our farmers will figure it out. Thank you China!"

But despite his big talk, there is much left to be done, with many details to be determined and no documents signed. And some of the thorniest issues - such as US allegations that China forces foreign companies to hand over trade secrets and a major dispute over the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei - were dealt with only partially, or not at all, and will require further talks.

"The president is acting as if a lot of Chinese concessions have been nailed down, and they just haven't," said Derek Scissors, a China specialist at the conservative American Enterprise Institute.


CRITICISING DEMOCRATS

Plenty of politicians criticise their rivals for having a bad idea or pushing ill-conceived policies. Trump paints them as an existential threat to the Republic and democracy. Throughout the 2016 campaign, the 2018 midterms and at his recent rallies, Trump has demonised Democrats as the enemy, claiming Thursday that they are out to "destroy America as we know it".

"At stake in this fight is the survival of American democracy itself," he told the crowd at a Dallas campaign rally. "I don't believe anymore that they love our country."

He warns the stock market will crash if he loses, and says Democrats want to destroy health care and repeal the Second Amendment.

HIS CROWD SIZE

Trump's exaggerations of his crowd sizes are well documented. On Thursday night he offered a doozy.

"So outside, they have close to 30,000 people," he reported to the enthusiastic crowd. Then he asked local officials whether they might be able to "fill up this little area, let 'em in. It would be so nice."

"You know they have a certain max," he added. "We broke the record tonight."

Tamika Dameron, a public information officer with the Dallas Police Department, said that wasn't even close.

The Dallas Fire-Rescue Department and American Airlines Center calculated the total number inside was 18,500, less than the 20,000 or so capacity of the arena, and said there were "about 5000 on the outside".

During the Mavericks 2011 NBA Finals series, the highest attendance at the American Airlines Center was 20,433.

Can't blame him. Really, I can't blame him.
When you have folks as gullible as DB and Pedro, why wouldn't he take advantage of the situation ?
Yeah, when you have supporters ready to back you up at every stupid lie you're telling, why care about Truth anymore ?
Truth doesn't pay, lies do ! At least, it did in 2016. Since it worked one time, why not do it again ?

Is Trump strong enough to kill Truth ?
No. He needs support. He owes everything to that bunch of crazy idiots and he knows it.
So, don't be surprised, he'll keep on lying, up till he has to leave.
He may well win again in 2020, not that I want him to.
If there's a thing I've learned with growing old is that one should never underestimate mass stupidity.
In History, it happened a lot of time.
:P :P :P :P :P
