… have Hank and BigBlock as our LOUDEST spokespers. Their overwhelming, 'in-your-face,' radically imposed fortitude for dumping their propaganda on us on a daily basis - here on a friendfinder site - is representative of Trump's agenda and reminiscent of the level of awareness and wherewithal he counts on in the way of leading those with a lack of education.

It's mind-boggling!!!

I don't know about you, but, perally, I (figuratively) look to the high heavens and pray, "Lord help us!!"

…. that Epstein is a 'friend' of Trump's???? "A good man, " as Trump sees it? Epstein's a sexual predator! So was Moore! So was/is the owner/editor of the rag sheet that bought stories to trash/hide them rather than publish them. What was his name? So was Bill O'Reilly. ALL friends of Trump's! More that I'm missing.

From a simple search of Melania's 4th of July frock:

"If Melania’s patriotic outfit is inspiring you to pick up a rainbow striped dress of your own, her exact Carolina Herrera frock is on sale now with limited sizes available for a whopping 70% off. The price is down to $1,187 from $4,095 so it’s still a splurge, but definitely one that you’ll be getting a good deal on."

A good deal? Oh, yeah? For the 1st Lady to display the image of the paper dolls I used to dress in 'finery,' maybe. Otherwise, IMO, it was a 'stick it to you' moment.

A failed moment at that. She looked like a Stick Lady, one of those cardboard stand-ups you see posted next to a new car at an auto show. Melania is about as warm and fuzzy as a parking meter in that outfit. The designer should be put to shame. It was UGLY!

Yeah, yeah … I can hear it already! I'm just green with envy. amp; Uh huh.

What say YOU? You gonna run out and buy the item at sale price??

Perally revised lyrics applied to Trump:

My Country 'tis of Me,
My tweets reign liberally,
Of ME I sing ……..

Insert dramatic effects: * Flags waving, fireworks blazing, jet engines raging, yada, yada, yada. *

He appears to be hung up on the above refrain. Let's ghost-write for him to push him onward with his love affair with self. You notice, he overrides the Savior in replacing Thee with ME. This may be the only way to get along … to yield and declare him the self proclaimed King of Kings.

Take it from here …. "Land where my father died …" considering he left him his fortune ... Just a thought.

Psssssssssst! BigBlock, Hank, Bob … no offerings from the peanut gallery are solicited. You guy have no sense of humor … no creativity … nor can you stay on task …. you have nothing to offer that would warrant a in this 'game'. Recalling a nasty expression I've been privy to hearing on occasion, you guys could 'screw up a wet dream'. (Just look at my last post!)

……… ends with the proverbial, "'ll see what happens " and what appears to me to be nothing more than a greater loyalty to the enemy: Putin, Kim Jung Un and the Crown Prince of Saudi.

Republicans are rallying 'round the liar of the century.

Over time, I have come to realize that the two most combative, 24-hr news sources here in the U.S. are nothing more than a steady flow of propaganda. YES, both!

I have shut down both FOX News, the 'fair and balanced' network, and CNN, 'the most trusted news source'. One or the other has captivated the American consciousness and in so doing has contributed to the great divide that fractures us to a point of vulnerability. It means nothing more than divide and conquer. Each contributes its own brand of frenzy, contrived of lies and deceit, not to mention liberally imposed, peral prejudice. Each BANKS on ignorance!

Truth lies somewhere beyond preponderance of evidence and in the ability to discriminate via critical thinking. This is lacking in a leader who is entangled in OBVIOUS corruption and alignment. WATCH and delineate! This is the order of the day to salvage a democracy.

Opinion: Americans must accept that none of these things ever happened

Oh no, he didn’t.

I believe President Trump when he says “I never called Meghan Markle ‘nasty.’ ” I believe him even though Britain’s Sun newspaper published an interview with Trump the day before in which he referred to the Duchess of Sussex with that very word — and even though the Sun has a recording.

Likewise, I believed Trump when he visited Britain last year and said “I didn’t criticize the prime minister” – even though the Sun also had a recorded interview of him that time, criticizing Prime Minister Theresa May.

And I am fully prepared to believe Trump tomorrow if he says “I never called Sadiq Khan a ‘stone cold loser’ ” — even though Trump, landing in Britain on Monday, called the London mayor just that in a tweet that misspelled Khan’s name and also mocked him for being short.

I believe all this and more because the alternative is unthinkable: that our great nation inflicted on the world a president who is, well, a stone cold loser, boorish and ignorant.

Therefore I plan to do as Trump does: live today as if yesterday never happened. But it’s not enough to imagine away this week’s name-calling. To preserve national dignity, Americans must accept that none of the following ever happened:
Trump did not shove the prime minister of Montenegro and he didn’t declare that he “fell in love” with the dictator of North Korea. He didn’t hang up on the Australian prime minister, nor attack the pope on Twitter. He didn’t use a phony accent to imitate the Indian prime minister, nor make fun of Chinese leaders’ eyewear. He didn’t refer to African nations and Haiti as “s******e countries.”

At no time did Trump confuse the Baltics with the Balkans. Never did he tastelessly comment on the French first lady’s body. He certainly did not invent the country of “Nambia,” nor did he boast about selling Norway a fighter jet that only exists in a computer game. He didn’t mispronounce Nepal as “nipple.”

Under no circumstance did Trump assert that “there is no longer a nuclear threat from North Korea,” nor did he believe North Korea’s dictator over Japan’s prime minister. He most definitely did not land in Israel and announce: “We just got back from the Middle East.” He didn’t skip a visit to a U.S. military cemetery in France because of a little rain. He didn’t accept Vladimir Putin’s word over that of U.S. intelligence, and when told “do not congratulate” Putin on his rigged election victory, he did not congratulate. He didn’t refer to Brussels as a “hellhole” nor assert that “Belgium is a beautiful city.” And spelling the British prime minister’s name as that of a British porn actress? Never happened.

His administration didn’t confuse Singapore with Indonesia and China with Taiwan, nor misidentify the Australian prime minister, nor misspell “Denmark.” Not once did Trump vow to “promote the possibility of lasting peach” in the Middle East.
Trump simply did not advise the French to dump water on Notre Dame Cathedral from the sky, nor did he claim that Finland avoids fires by “raking” forests. He didn’t fabricate trade figures in talks with the Canadian prime minister. Neither did he falsely accuse South Africa of “large scale killing” of farmers, nor volunteer any thoughts, ever, on “what happened last night in Sweden.”

Trump, furthermore, did not sign the guest book at Israel’s Holocaust memorial with the words “so amazing.” He didn’t pull his name from a Group of Seven communique. He didn’t take a limousine and a golf cart instead of walking with other world leaders at summits. He didn’t struggle with a group handholding exercise in Manila, his knuckles didn’t whiten in the grip of Emmanuel Macron, and Melania Trump did not swat his hand away on the tarmac in Tel Aviv.

Furthermore, Trump did not reveal secret Israeli intelligence to Russia. He didn’t accuse Germany of being “totally controlled by Russia.” He didn’t taunt the French over street protests, attack the idea of NATO, use an all-caps tweet to threaten Iran with annihilation, hail “fantastic” strongmen nor pine for the reign of Moammar Gaddafi.

Fortunately, it has all been a misunderstanding. For if an American president had
actually done even a fraction of the above, it would be an indelible national disgrace.

Trump says top economic advisor to leave job shortly


(Bloomberg) -- Kevin Hassett, a fixture of conservative economic circles for two decades who vigorously defended President Donald Trump’s signature tax cuts, will soon be leaving his role as chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

“Kevin Hassett, who has done such a great job for me and the Administration, will be leaving shortly,” Trump tweeted Sunday night after leaving for the U.K. “His very talented replacement will be named as soon as I get back to the U.S. I want to thank Kevin for all he has done -- he is a true friend!”

Hassett, 57, who directed economic policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute before joining the administration, regularly credited the overhaul of the tax code with boosting financial markets and wages during television appearances and media briefings.

He provided relentlessly positive economic analysis, served as a booster for the president’s trade policies and was well liked at the White House. Hassett thrived despite initial skepticism from hardliners within Trump’s circle who were upset when he was first appointed because of his past support for immigration as a driver of economic growth.

But Hassett’s influence within the West Wing appeared tempered by a president who regularly bases policy decisions on gut feelings rather than detailed statistical analyses. His post was downgraded from a cabinet-level position, as it had been under recent presidents.

Hassett’s tenure was also marred by occasional factual miscues and the decision to quibble with traditional statistics that didn’t support Trump’s claims of historic economic growth. His office has regularly promoted alternative measures to data produced by the Congressional Budget Office, the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Census Bureau on key issues including wages, inflation, poverty and deficits, while complaining about outside analyses that showed the president’s trade conflicts hurting the economy.

Last year, Hassett told CNN that the economics team at Goldman Sachs Group Inc. “almost at times looks like the Democratic opposition” after the bank’s strategists estimated that Trump’s tariffs could hurt corporate earnings next year.
And other claims have proven inaccurate. In August, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Trump had tripled Obama’s eight-year job creation record for black workers in just 18 months, quoting inaccurate numbers. She later issued a correction, and Hassett apologized for the error.

Earlier in the year, Trump posted a false statistic on Twitter comparing U.S. gross domestic product to unemployment. Hassett said he didn’t know how the error was made. “I’m not the chairman of the Council of Twitter Advisers,” he said.
