Alternate Reality

Donald Trump, The Republican Party, And Two “Big Lies”!

Donald Trump lost the national popular vote twice, by massive margins, much more than George W. Bush in 2000, Rutherford B. Hayes in 1876, Benjamin Harrison in 1888, and John Quincy Adams in 1824.

Together, he lost by nearly 10 million votes–2.85 million in 2016, and 7.1 million in 2020.

The “Big Lie” is that Donald Trump won EITHER time, 2016 and 2020.

It is clear that the Russians and Vladimir Putin helped to fix the election in 2016 in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, giving Trump the victory by a combined total of about 78,000 votes.

In 2020, Trump lost much more massively, even in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, along with Georgia and Arizona, but his party is perpetuating a myth that helped to provoke the Capitol Insurrection of January 6, 2021, for which Donald Trump should be held accountable and be in prison!

Conservatism and the Republican Party are being destroyed, and the idea that nearly 70 percent of Republicans in polls believe the “Big Lie”, and refuse to acknowledge Joe Biden won the Presidency is beyond any sense of reality. This undermines American democracy, rule of law, and respect for the Constitution.

The Republican Party officeholders, with the exception of a small group, including Liz Cheney, Mitt Romney, Adam Kinzinger, Lisa Murkowski, and a few others, has become a Fascist Party, a right wing Populist Party, a worshipper of Donald Trump, as if he is their Adolf Hitler or Benito Mussolini, unwilling or unable to accept the truth, and living in an alternate reality!

Donald Trump Remains A Menace, As He Lies And Continues To Spread Conspiracy Theories At CPAC

Donald Trump put on a performance of lies and deceit yesterday at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Florida, and it is clear that he remains a menace, as he spread conspiracy theories and Fascist authoritarianism!

Trump claimed Joe Biden has had the worst first five weeks as President in American history, a totally moronic and preposterous statement, as reality is just the opposite, so it demonstrates how Trump is living in an alternate reality, but with millions of crazy people who seem him as a God like figure!

Trump spoke of having “won” two elections, when he lost the popular vote by a massive margin twice, and his two impeachments also add to the reality that never has Trump “won” anything in his political life, other than the Republican Presidential nomination twice! He has never had a majority public opinion rating, while Joe Biden now has a 59-63 rating, depending on which public opinion polls one follows!

It was sickening seeing the absolute flattery and obsequious nature and sycophancy displayed by the long list of Republicans who are acting slavishly to Donald Trump, and the the thought of any of these disgraces being the next Republican Presidential nominee if Trump does not run, which is likely reality, is enough to make one vomit!

Unless the Republican Party pursues the nomination of a mainstream conservative, such as Liz Cheney, Adam Kinzinger, Mitt Romney, or Ben Sasse, they are doomed to die in the next few years!

Alternate Reality, Improper Use Of Government Sites, And Violation Of Hatch Act: Highlights Of Second Night Of Republican National Convention

The second night of the Republican National Convention was a time of alternate reality;

acting as if the CoronaVirus Pandemic is over when it is not (as expressed by Larry Kudlow);

having First Lady Melania Trump condemn hate and division on social media, while her husband has done so non stop on Twitter for his entire Presidency;

having Pam Bondi, former Florida Attorney General, use the Ukraine scandal that led to the impeachment of Donald Trump as a gimmick to attack Joe Biden and his family with conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden, when the Trump children have been involved in corrupt activities all along;

and libertarian Rand Paul forgetting his condemnation of Donald Trump in 2016, and suddenly seeing Trump as someone to admire in 2020.

We also saw Donald Trump holding a citizenship ceremony for five immigrants at the White House, an improper use of a government building to try to convince Americans that he is open minded on immigration, while his record is the most horrific in American history, bar none!

He is trying to make the nation forget his separation of children from their parents at the border, and putting them in cages, which will harm them psychologically for the rest of their lives, and with some never reunited with their parents!

We also saw Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Jerusalem giving a speech to attract evangelical Christians and Jews, violating the Hatch Act, which bans government officials from making political speeches in foreign nations for purposes of political manipulation.

There is no such thing as a utterance or action of Donald Trump and his minions that will not lower the standard of decency, that will not undermine respect for the Constitution and the rule of law!

It is all designed just to win enough support to have a second term, where the President will be unleashed to wreak yet further havoc on America. The thought that it might occur is enough to cause one to wonder how the nation will ever revive from the establishment of a Fascist authoritarian government!

Donald Trump is a threat to American values and history, and we have to hope that the American people will repudiate this threat, as otherwise, the destruction of the America that has survived 231 years under the Constitution, and 244 years since the Declaration of Independence, is in dire peril!

Donald Trump And The Republican Party Have No Shame: No Limit To Their Abuse Of Power And Only Interest In Self Preservation

America and the world are living in an alternate reality.

All semblance of ethics, morality, patriotism, and dedication to our Constitution is gone, in the era of Donald Trump and the modern Republican Party.

All semblance of duty to country, and to the advancement of the nation, has disappeared, and now, the only goal is to sweep all scandal and abuse under the rug, and perpetuate oneself in power, dropping all sense of shame.

The Republican Party has had a long, distinguished history since 1854, but in 2019, it should be declared bankrupt, and die in history, as the Whig Party did 165 years ago.

The party has lost all sense of right and wrong, and its history of some great Presidents and some great members of Congress and governors, is all lost in the morass of destruction of America’s domestic and foreign policy.

Not only have the events of the past three years shamed America, but it has also demonstrated that modern conservatism is bankrupt, and that evangelical Christianity, and also the hard line Catholic community, and the orthodox Jewish community, have all sold their soul to the corruption and mismanagement of Donald Trump.

So these extreme religious groups also need to be swept out in the dustbin of history.

Will it happen? If it does not, then America is on the road to constant decline and deterioration, and America, as an example of democracy and freedom, and as a beacon to the world on the potential for the advancement of mankind, will be lost, in the midst of a nation in anarchy and chaos long term.

54 Percent Of Voters Against Trump On Election Day, Same Percentage After 100 Days Of Trump Presidency

On Election Day 2016, 54 percent, a clear strong majority, voted AGAINST Donald Trump.

The Electoral College system elected Donald Trump, NOT the American people.

Now, 100 days into his administration, the same 54 percent, a clear strong majority, has condemned and rejected Donald Trump’s record.

What else is needed to know?

The American people, counting one person one vote, have rejected Donald Trump and his despicable domestic and foreign agenda, and no President has ever had such a rejection in the era of public opinion polls since Harry Truman to now.

The American people have voted no confidence in a President who is:

a loose cannon;

a mentally deranged leader;

a person who lives in an alternate reality;

a man who is racist, misogynistic, nativist, and associates with antisemites;

a man who consorts with authoritarian leaders who deny their own people basic human rights;

a man who is totally ignorant of history, science, and basic morals and ethics;

a man who is out to promote the elite wealthy over the middle class and poor population of this nation;

a person who is out to destroy all labor, consumer, environmental laws in favor of the interests of corporations;

a President who is undermining our relations with our allies and friends in the world;

and a man who is truly the LIAR IN CHIEF, rather than the Commander in Chief of this nation, and never admits any mistakes or errors, and tells mistruths multiple times a day.

Donald Trump is a total disaster and embarrassment as our 45th President, and undermines respect for the office, and definitely raises the stock of our worst Presidents and most controversial Presidents up a notch!

Donald Trump’s Alternate Reality And Inability To Tell The Truth Undermining America Today And In The Future

Donald Trump is clearly a very sick man, mentally unbalanced, and unable to see reality or tell the truth about anything.

We are living through a nightmare, that every morning, we wake up, and want to imagine it is over, but it is NOT over, and after 45 days in the White House, we are living through a tumultuous time which is undermining any possibility of unity, or optimism about the future.

Trump lives in an alternate reality, and is the LIAR IN CHIEF, and anyone with any common sense, can clearly notice that his behavior is far outside the norm, and that he stands out as the worst possible example of Presidential leadership.

Many observers seem to think that somehow Trump can make it through a four year term, but this author and blogger does not see it that way, and believes that if he were to do so, this nation would be so damaged in domestic and foreign policy, that it would take many decades to recover.

Why, oh why, did this nightmare have to occur, and undermine all of the progress in the past century and more under both Democratic and Republican Presidents?

All progressives have to commit themselves to active efforts to end this nightmare by stopping their divisive tactics, as with the Democratic National Chairman election, where some came out of the situation disgruntled.

The fact that Tom Perez asked Keith Ellison to be his deputy should be the first example of cooperation among progressives for the future, or else, progressivism is doomed long term.
