The anti-gay hack pol uses an anti-gay massacre as an excuse to run for office again,

and then campaigns, where the anti-gay massacre occurred, alongside of virulent anti-gay activists.

Doubling down. Jamming the massively contradictory cognitive-dissonance exhibition into the public's face. Acting proud about something they should be ashamed of.

'Captain Khan was a hero', says Pence for the dRumpf campaign,

while dRumpf campaign proxy Roger Stone simultaneously says Khan and his family are Muslim Brotherhood.

'Nobody cares about and supports our troops and vets like dRumpf', Pence says, in order to support the guy who badmouthed POWs, used a fake one member astro-turf group called 'Veterans for a Strong America' to skip out of a debate, and did everything he could to not donate one cent to that fake fundraiser for the vets, until WaPo caught him on it in late May. And who wants to privatize the VA.

Hmmm. A reich wing repug threatening civil war.

How strange. Most unusual. etc.

Hey Roger, how is Jerry DeLemus doing lately? You may get a chance to get together and chew the fat with him, real soon.

That's not a new style repug candidate they're running, there. He's exactly the same as all of them

Nixon, Raygun, Poppy, l'il bush, and now dRumpf all claim that 'overzealous underlings did it', 'we weren't involved or in the loop', 'mistakes were made (that just happened to benefit their cronies and their political ideologues)'. They're all in the know enough to understand that things are going exactly like they want them to go, and they have plausible deniability in case their side gets caught stealing and breaking the law.

They're packaging this orange hitler like he's a wildly different break from tradition breath of fresh air. He's the same exact lazy ass, hands off, head up his hindquarters boss that all the rest of the gop's felony laden leaders have been. (O.K. I'll admit that Nixon, Poppy, and dick Cheney weren't lazy, they were just extra evil to make up for not being lazy.) The flunkies do all the dirty work he wants done while he looks the other way and whistles up into the air. But he's disguised as 'not your standard politician', and he's faking like he's a tough no nonsense micromanager who knows and keeps track of everything and tells any underling that doesn't do exactly what he wants 'you're fired.' Until he gets caught, then he has nothing to do with it, and knows nothing.

Here's a post from Kpete, from March 2:


It was China, at least at that time.

And by the way, before he switched hat production to a company called 'cali-fame', (which uses Hispanic labor and has been caught lying in it's claims that it uses American parts, fabric and materials,) he used another company, Ace Specialties:

"Mr. Trump spent $114,000 to stage an enormous rally in September in Dallas, even though Texas does not hold its primary until March. He spent about $2 million on hats, T-shirts and other merchandise, roughly half of it going to a Louisiana-based company, Ace Specialties, owned by a board member of Mr. Trump’s son’s charitable foundation. During the last half of 2015, Mr. Trump’s campaign spent more on renting stages and audiovisual equipment ($1.4 million) than on voter lists, field offices and collecting signatures to get onto ballots ($1.2 million.)"


The title is "Provocateur Donald Trump Speaks At Hate Crime Site".

Maddow's coverage is from 3 months ago, during the NY primary. I can't get a link from MSNBC, though you might be able to, but here's a yahoo one.


It's a 20 min video, up to about min 11:45, it talks about Raygun dog-whistling in MS. The second half talks about the incidents in Patchogue, Suffolk County, Long Island.

Summary is that 4 days after Obama was elected on 11/4, a bunch of white teens went 'wilding', looking for Hispanic victims, attacked 4 people in 3 separate attacks, and wound up killing Marcello Lucero. The Daily News called them the "Long Island Lynch Mob". The Hispanic population there said that this was just one incident in years of unprovoked racist attacks, which the Suffolk County police did nothing about. In '09, the Justice Dept entered into an oversight agreement with the Suffolk County police, forcing them to investigate and prevent hate crime attacks.

dRumpf campaigned in the NY primary there, on the same street where Lucero was killed, 2 1/2 blocks away, and was introduced by Carl Palladino whipping up the crowd to chant about building the wall to keep Mexicans out.

I just came across Milt Rosenberg, while looking at some info on Koch birchers.

He was involved with Rick Santelli's 'spur of the moment' tea-party launch:

"Within hours of Santelli’s rant, a website called ChicagoTeaParty.com sprang to life. Essentially inactive until that day, it now featured a YouTube video of Santelli’s “tea party” rant and billed itself as the official home of the Chicago Tea Party. The domain was registered in August, 2008 by Zack Christenson, a dweeby Twitter Republican and producer for a popular Chicago rightwing radio host Milt Rosenberg—a familiar name to Obama campaign people. Last August, Rosenberg, who looks like Martin Short’s Irving Cohen character, caused an outcry when he interviewed Stanley Kurtz, the conservative writer who first “exposed” a personal link between Obama and former Weather Undergound leader Bill Ayers. As a result of Rosenberg’s radio interview, the Ayers story was given a major push through the Republican media echo chamber, culminating in Sarah Palin’s accusation that Obama was “palling around with terrorists.” That Rosenberg’s producer owns the “chicagoteaparty.com” site is already weird—but what’s even stranger is that he first bought the domain last August, right around the time of Rosenburg’s launch of the “Obama is a terrorist” campaign. It’s as if they held this “Chicago tea party” campaign in reserve, like a sleeper-site. Which is exactly what it was."


And none of his nitwit doublethinking followers even blinks

at his obvious, blatant lying.

The act of open lying is itself nazi propaganda or psy warfare, as much as the actual misinfo that the lies attempt to convey are. Because normal people then have to argue about whether the open lie is a lie with his surrogates, while everyone knows it's a lie, and the pro-dRumpf people are laughing up their sleeves while arguing with their opponents in the reality based world.

It's like some bad little 7 year old school yard bully taking a smaller kids hand and hitting the smaller kid with his own hand, while saying 'stop hitting yourself!' If the kid says 'I'm not hitting myself, you're hitting me', that makes the bully feel like they're winning bigger. That's the level of swinish moron we're dealing with, when we're dealing with dRumpf teabag repugs.

Just got this bit of info from factchecking dRumpf's speech:

"Darrel Stephens, executive director of the Major Cities Chiefs Police Association, told us in an email that it was “too soon to talk about trends.” Stephens said there had been “a spike in the past year in some large cities (particularly in five or six) — something we should be concerned about to be sure but not a trend or even close to 20 years ago.”


We took a longer view of what has happened in some major cities, compiling the FBI city-specific data, which comes from voluntary reports from police departments, available through 2012, and 2015 numbers reported by police departments to the Major Cities Chiefs Police Association. Every city shows a big drop in the number of murders since the 1990s, and mixed movement from 2012 to 2015.

Excerpt ends.

So Chicago, for example, is on track to hit a murder level it experienced under W bush, a couple hundred less murders than occurred during the high point it reached under Raygun/Poppy. After decades of decline, including 6 years of decline under President Obama. While the head of the Major City Chiefs association says a spike isn't a trend. Of course, the repugs weren't concerned about the murder rate when they were in power, and could do something about it.

He's mastering the art of going in polar opposite directions at the same time.

While his spokeswoman (Katrina Pierson) uses this 'amplification' about dRumpf's immigration policy to claim that he was never about banning all moslems, in order to lower the number of people who view dRumpf negatively, he's able to simultaneously claim that he's doubling down on his policy and increasing it, pointing to the exact same campaign immigration policy amplification or correction, and his followers find it credible.

He will try to do any nazi thing possible, if he gets in, so he does want to double down. But he simultaneously wants credit for being more moderate than the 'lyin' media says. Followers get to hear all the nazi they want, and independents get to hear that he's not the terrible nazi boogeyman, with the exact same policy speech.
