The latest edition of Time Magazine released this past week shows a black cover with 3 words, "Is Truth Dead". When it comes to the state of affairs in Washington D.C. and especially at the White House these 3 simple words ring a loud warning bell. It seems that our leaders in the nations capitol have thrown common sense and truth to the wind for partisan volleys of lies and untruths. They have blatantly disregarded the intelligence of the American public for their self interests and self esteem by spewing untold lies during interviews or on their Twitter accounts. Lying seems to be common place anymore. It is actually sickening.
When I was a kid, my parents taught me not to lie. It was a fundamental belief that most of us grew up with. Today, this belief has been thrown to the waste side by the men and women who are deciding the fate of our country every day. This new trend of untruths is being led by none other than the President himself, Donald Trump, or as I call him The Trumpster. It seems that every time he opens his filthy pie hole nothing but garbage flows out. During his campaign, the Huffington Post wrote,"Donald Trump has lied so many times this presidential election campaign that the very value of truth in politics seems meaningless". He lied to the faces of the American public time and time again during his campaign, but somehow still got elected. Does this mean that the people just don't give a rats rear end anymore? It certainly seems that way.I guess the public was so fed up with politics as usual they decided that a liar was better as President than a full time, qualified politician.
Now that the campaign is over and The Trumpster is actually our President, the lies have not stopped. In fact they have become bigger and are spewed more often. On January 23rd of 2017, the Independent wrote, "President Donald Trump
cemented his reputation for fabrication on the campaign trail, but
ascending to the highest office in the land has not kept him from making
false claims", only days after he was sworn into office. Let's not forget how his mouth piece Kellyanne Conway uttered those ridiculous words about Sean Spicer giving "Alternative Facts". I just grabbed at my forehead yet again in disbelief as I write this. There is absolutely no such thing as Alternative Facts. A fact is a fact...PERIOD! If it's not a fact than it is a untruth or a lie.
So what is the bottom line here? It's either our President lives in a fantasy world or he is simply a down right lying sack of crap. In my opinion it could be either. The Trumpster once claimed that he was on the cover of Time Magazine 14 or 15 times and that was a record never to be broken. Wrong-O beaver breath. Richard Nixon donned the cover 55 times while The Trumpster hit the cover 11 times. Was this a lie or was he just inflating his own self centered ego. Either way, this has to stop. Have politicians in Washington been lying to the American public since the beginning? Sure they have, but not as blatantly as they are now. Our President needs to lead by example and reign in the politics of untruths. It's time for our politicians to come clean and start to lead our country by telling the truth. If not, We The People need to rise up and vote these knuckleheads out of office. It's time that they make decisions based on what is good for this country and not was better for their own personal gains. It certainly seems that the truth is dead in Washington.
I must be a genius. A prognosticating mammal with more powers than the weather predicting rodent Punxsutawney Phil. A real Nostradamus when it comes to predicting the future. Back about a year ago during the Presidential election, I predicted that Mexico would not pay one red cent or should I say Peso toward Donald Trumps wall. I also predicted that our maniacal, delusional President would hoist the burden of his wall onto the backs of us taxpayers. Boy was I right!
This past week, the Trumpster released his 2017 fiscal budget that included $1.5 billion for his "great" wall. I put the word great in quotations because the Chumpster himself says that if you do this it broadens the meaning of the word. This is for a future Gripe. He is also asking for another $2.6 billion in the 2018 fiscal budget which by the way begins this October. That is a total of $4.1 billion dollars for a wall in the 2017 calendar year that in my opinion and the opinion of many experts, will not stop the flow of illegal immigrants. It may slow it down, but it will not stop the flow of illegals coming into our country. FYI, in case you didn't know, the Department of Homeland Security estimated that the entire cost of this wall would be somewhere near $21.6 billion. Of course the Chumpster claims that it will only cost a mere $12 billion. The $21.6 billion must be a "fake" number.
People, I have a real Gripe with this. Back on the campaign trail, one of the central themes of the Chumpster was, "We are going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it". In fact his supporters would chant it right along with him when he said it. It was a call and response rally cry for the Chump campaign. However, in January, Chump backed off his campaign promise and finally admitted that "We The People" would be paying for the wall, but Mexico would reimburse us for it. Of course, time and time again Mexican President Enrique Nieto stated that in no way will Mexico pay for this wall. Former Mexican President Vicente Fox tweeted, "I've said this to @realDonaldTrump and now I'll tell you: Mexico is not going to pay for that fucking wall." I love this guy. He is not afraid to tell it like he sees it.
Here is the bottom line. Our President lives in an ivory tower fantasy world where he is used to getting his own way. The people around him in his business world bow down to him because he holds the ultimate power over them. In the political realm, Chump does not wield Excalibur all over the world. He cannot strong arm other countries to genuflect at his feet so he can get what he wants. Donald Chump lied on the campaign trail and he continues to lie to this day as the President of the United States. The wall is only one example of the numerous piles of bull shit that he laid on the American public. I sit here at my lap top shaking my head as I write this. How could close to half of the American public fall for his forked tongue rhetoric? I know I didn't. I made my prediction a year ago and I will stand by it until Mexico sends us a check.
I am sick and tired of these DUI Checkpoints. I see that the PA State Police just got done with what they called Operation Nighthawk. Yea, they even give them names. I always thought that this was entrapment. Now, I'm not saying that you should get all mangled up and then get behind the wheel, that's what cabs and Uber's are for. What I don't like is you have two or three beers and you are cuffed and treated worse than a murderer. Hell, anymore if you open a beer and take a smell of it you are considered over the limit. Let's stop the bull shit and concentrate on the drug dealers who are flowing into our area to sell their crap. Lay off the poor guy or gal that goes for a few drinks with their friends and is totally capable of operating a vehice.
