The New York Times article on Trump's financial dealings was impressively documented, taken from 100,000 pages of public legal and tax documents. "Balance" was hardly to be found. The investigation showed, simply and, "straight from the record," that the Trump family were professional swindlers and tax cheats, to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars; in sum equal to the GDP of many nations. The "Enemy of the People" stood in Trump's way. They had to be widely discredited. Then ruined financially.
In an interview clip shown on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Perry told Ed Henry that the president was “the chosen one” sent by God to rule over America. The former Texas governor and Republican presidential rival of Trump used Old Testament kings to make his point.
The lesson from 2016 should be, nominate someone who is inspiring to voters and brings with them too little baggage to be buried under. The media types who are Republicans and lean to the center/right or right, are more preoccupied with filling the Dem nomination slot with someone reflecting their more conservative, establishment sensibilities. That is very different from picking the candidate most likely to beat Trump and best bring change to the country.

Conservatism And Racism

Liberals don’t promote that conservatives are racists. They promote that the Republican Party is racist, and conservatives who are not racist should leave that party.
Those who voted for Trump might recall that Hillary promised people in Kentucky that she would put coal miners out of business, AND replace it with green jobs. Kentuckians were offended by Hillary’s vision of a new economy for Kentucky. I wonder how that is working out for Mitch McConnell’s and Donald Trump’s supporters in Kentucky?
"Global Warming," as a legislative human rights issue, is about owning the sources of the energy we use. Global warming, as an environmental issue, is largely incomprehensible and made overwhelmingly so by the professional disinformers.
There are many traps for conscientious candidates who run against a sociopathic demogogue who shows no hesitation to damage society or abuse the powers of the presidency to win at any cost. Avoiding them is critical.
Nunes claims that the portrayal he sees of himself in mirrors demean him and make him appear like "an overweight, slimy douche-bag".
For a little perspective on 2018, we invite you to take a stroll back through some of the events of this year through a gallery of graphics that were on PlanetPOV. Enjoy!
The Trump Twitter scheme is a rigged con game from a con man. We can't win at it because the game is keeping the media and people chasing intentional lies each day, to control their behavior and their topics of discussion.
