Sharpie-gate, and the lie that keeps getting bigger.

Image result for Trump Map Images Hurricane
Someone please tell Mr. trump that this sharpie fiasco has gone on long enough. What should have been a one day news story that just pretty much confirms that he is a liar who will lie about the smallest of things, has turned into what is now being called sharpiegate.

Mr. trump has doubled and tripled down on his ridiculous and dangerous lie that the people of Alabama were in harms way when Hurricane Dorian was heading towards the United States. It is a lie that was proven wrong, and that the authorities in Alabama had to quickly correct before their citizens went into a full blown panic. And yet this petty man who some of you chose to elect as your president insists on perpetrating a fraudulent story.

The kicker was when he held a press briefing and used a sharpie to include Alabama in the hurricane's track. (A little stunt that was illegal to boot.) That would have been the low point in any normal presidency, but we are talking about Donald trump here, so that probably registers somewhere in the middle on the outrage meter.

And  still he won't let it go.

The following is from the Washington Post:

"He posted nine tweets and five maps about Alabama and the big storm.

He defended a doctored hurricane map that had been altered with a black Sharpie to include the state.
And he had his White House release a 225-word statement defending his erroneous warnings that Alabama was “going to get a piece” of the storm.

As Hurricane Dorian battered the Carolinas with torrential rain and wind Thursday, President Trump remained fixated on sunny Alabama — a state he falsely claimed was in the storm’s crosshairs long after it was in the clear.

For a fourth straight day, Trump’s White House sought to clean up the president’s mistaken warnings to Alabama from Sunday, seeking to defend Trump’s tweets by releasing statements, disseminating alternative hurricane maps and attacking the media.

Trump also took to Twitter again to defend his use of a doctored and outdated hurricane map that looped in Alabama using black marker — the latest iteration in a days-long, administration-wide campaign on the topic....

Tim O’Brien, a Trump biographer and executive editor of Bloomberg Opinion, said the Alabama claims underscore the president’s belief that admitting error is a sign of weakness.

“He’s doubling down on the worst sides of his troubled personality — to never admit an error and to continue obsessing about it, and emphasizing it, when it doesn’t serve him well to do so,” he said. “He doesn’t move along because he is incapable of moving along.”

Trump, who canceled a trip to Poland to monitor the storm, was especially sensitive to the criticism he has received for misrepresenting the hurricane’s path, according to current and former officials.
“Always good to be prepared! But the Fake News is only interested in demeaning and belittling,” Trump tweeted Monday, complaining about an ABC News report that highlighted the discrepancy between Trump’s warnings to Alabama and the government’s assurance that the state was not under threat." [Source]

We are all under a threat. The threat of Donald trump. 

Finally, there is a story breaking tonight from Mother Jones about Mr. trump's finances, and a mysterious $50 million loan that he says that he owes to one of his own companies. If you care anything about what is happening with the conman in Washington you will give it a quick read. [Read here.]

The Mad Emperor's Sharpie
an Underfable


Once upon a time, a mad Emperor said to an approaching Hurricane, "Disperse or I will nuke you!"
The Hurricane said, "Then I will be radioactive."
The Emperor drew forth his Sharpie, and said, "By the credibility of this Sharpie, I hereby order you to go straight!"
The Hurricane turned right and raked the coast.
The Emperor said, "You're not listening! Who do you think you are?"
The Hurricane said, "I am what I am what I am what I am what I am what I am what I am!"

Moral: Nature bats last.

Good morning to all the feelz,

Just an observation, the three leading democrat candidates for president are old white people. How can this be? I was under the impression that the democrat party was so over white people. What gives?

Another observation, it appears that the democrat platform for the presidential election is "America Sucks" and the "planet is going to die in a few years". I know it does not matter to democrat voters what their candidates say or do but how is this a winning strategy?

Asking for a friend. Thanks in advance.

Anyone with a pulse and without a massive head injury is better than trump. We now have an individual who lies constantly, acts like a petulant toddler and just isn't a good person. Any criticism coming from a virtually all white party about the racial composition of the Democratic Party is highly hypocritical.

Biden on Colbert told a verifiable lie about holding cages for immigrant kids that went unchecked.

The “Abrams is actually governor” conspiracy theory is promoted by presidential candidates and continues to go unchecked.

Our brave media will freak out over a sharpie mark but let monstrous lies continues... I guess falsely accusing the American government of human rights abuses is no big deal or claiming that an election is rigged isn’t as dangerous as they pretended it to be.

No, not “America sucks”; it’s just racists like you that suck. You are not the totality of “America,” no matter how much you pretend to be.

And “the planet is going to die in a few years” is an exaggeration, but it’s not that far off the mark. Doing nothing about climate change now guarantees a miserable future for coming generations. The alternative is that Dem candidates could LIE to the public and tell them that everything’s fine — you know, the Republican way.

3. Why has the earth's rainfall patterns changed?
4. Why are we regularly experiencing category 5 hurricanes?
5. Why is the sea level rising all around the earth?

No Republican politician says that.

The trouble with advocating for "clean energy" is that this appeals to altruism, which the R's have proven is a weak force. Stronger is self-interest, including acquisitiveness and the will to power. I therefore recommend that we re-brand "clean energy", a.k.a. "green energy" and "renewable energy", as "owned power".

When you put up a solar panel or a windmill or a hydro turbine or a geothermal tap, then you own a source of power. Those kilowatts are yours; the rent-seekers in the oil oligopolies and the oil autocracies cannot embargo you. Therefore you own your own power, both in the physical sense and in the political sense.

Fuel-based power is rented power; natural-flow-based power is owned power; and it's better to own your power than to rent it.

This is the argument that I propose the Green New Deal make.

Of course not. They leave out the part about subservience to rich people, because that would be giving the game away. Instead, all the deregulation and union-busting and tax cuts are described as “defending liberty” and “fiscal responsibility” and “promoting innovation,” and similar claptrap. This sounds ever so slightly nicer than “hand over your wallet to the important people.”

It’s always the same dynamic. Dimwitted rednecks voting over and over again to financially fuck themselves because a bunch of lying GOP con men scared them senseless with a campaign of racist lies about black welfare cheats and Mexican rapists and rampaging jihadis.

1. Why is every year hotter than the last?

That's simply not true. Global mean temperatures do not rise every year. The 1930's are the hottest decade on record for the US.

2. Why are the glaciers around the world melting?

Glaciers always fluctuate. Receding glaciers in the Alps reveal mines from 1,000 years ago that indicate there was no glacier there then. Most glaciers in the northern hemisphere are receding now. Most in the southern hemisphere are not, or are growing.

3. Why has the earth's rainfall patterns changed?

Rainfall patterns are always changing. It's called weather.

4. Why are we regularly experiencing category 5 hurricanes?

We are not regularly experiencing category 5 hurricanes. In fact, the last 15 years have seen a historically low hurricane frequency. Destruction is much more an issue now because of coastal development. There's more stuff there to destroy and more people to be harmed.

5. Why is the sea level rising all around the earth?

The sea level has been rising since the end of the Ice Age maximum (over 400 feet). All the evidence shows that the rate of sea level rise has not increased during this century, even though greenhouse gas emissions have increased substantially. Obama just bought a mansion on Martha's Vineyard. The day you see rich people selling their beachfront property for pennies on the dollar, you'll know catastrophic sea level rise is real.

"When the whole earth catches fire, then will you see the truth??? Maybe not."

This is religious thinking, not science.

There is a deep-seated need for spirituality in people. Post-Christian progressivism attempts to fill this void by sacralizing the elements of their ideology. The old sins have been replaced with new ones - "racism", "sexism", "homophobia", "whiteness", etc. The transcendence of the soul has been replaced with a gnostic vision of Heaven on Earth, where the inherent evil of humanity can only atoned for by vanquishing the iron rules of nature. It's a war not on superstition, but on reality. All people have not just equal value (true), but equal abilities (false). You can change your gender just by saying so. Evolution is real except for where it implies differences between people, in which case it's a sin.

And if you don't bow before the precepts of this new religion, it even has it's own Apocalypse Myth: Climate change. The end is nigh!

No it isn't, it's called climate. Climate and weather are entirely different things. Then there's this...

"Rising temperatures will intensify the Earth’s water cycle, increasing evaporation. Increased evaporation will result in more storms, but also contribute to drying over some land areas. As a result, storm-affected areas are likely to experience increases in precipitation and increased risk of flooding, while areas located far away from storm tracks are likely to experience less precipitation and increased risk of drought."

Nope. The planet will be fine, it's been through far more extreme conditions.

Millions of people will die and/or be displaced, but the planet will go on without caring even a little.

See, we are responsible for maintaining the living conditions we depend on now that there are so many of us that we affect them with our behavior, and we will be the ones who pay the price for failing to do so, along with all the other species that we drive to extinction in the process.

Like every other creature, we have to learn to not shit in our own nests, or pay the price for failing to learn.

Like petulant toddlers, too many of us just try to deny that there's anything wrong until what's wrong kills us or displaces us from our homes.

Some of us would rather deal with the problems while we still can than live through the consequences of inaction.

Wednesday during CNN’s climate town hall, Democratic presidential hopeful Mayor of South Bend, IN, Pete Buttigieg called inaction on climate change a “sin.”:

“There’s a lot of evidence that the Syria civil war is one of the first that was partly caused as a consequence of climate change. We want to talk about security, let’s talk about securing the lives of future generations. Let’s talk in language that is understood across the heartland about faith. If you believe that God is watching, as poison is being belched into the air of creation, and people are being harmed by it. Countries are at risk of vanishing in low lying areas. What does God think of that? It’s messed up.”

“You don’t have to be religious to see the moral dimension. Frankly, every religious and non-religious moral tradition tells us that we have some responsibility of stewardship. Some responsibility for taking care of what’s around us and our neighbor. Eventually, it gets to the point this is less and less about the planet as an abstract thing and more about specific people suffering specific harm because of what we’re doing right now. At least one way of talking about this is that it’s a kind of sin.”

Head on down to Planned Parenthood, maybe they'll let you watch. And now Democrats are linking abortion to Climate Change.

Bernie Sanders at Wednesday's CNN town hall:

Audience member, Martha Readyoff: “I realize this is a poisonous topic for politicians, but it is crucial to face. Empowering women and educating everyone on the need to curb population growth seems a reasonable campaign to enact. Would you be courageous enough to discuss this issue and make it a key feature of a plan to address climate catastrophe?”

Sanders: “Well Martha the answer is yes. And the answer has everything to do with the fact that women in the United States of America, by the way, have a right to control their own bodies, and make reproductive decisions.”

Sanders added that he would support taxpayer-funded programs to provide abortions and birth control for women in developing countriesas a measure to combat the climate crisis.

From Steve Benen:

"Donald Trump has now been in office for 31 full months -- February 2017 through August 2019 -- and in that time, the economy has created 5.85 million jobs. In the 31 months preceding Trump's presidency -- July 2014 to January 2017 -- the economy created 6.84 million jobs.

I recently heard from some readers who asked what would happen if we looked at the same numbers, but assigned the job totals from January 2017 to Trump, even though Obama was president for most of the month. On balance, I think that paints a misleading picture, but it doesn't change the underlying dynamic: if we applied jobs from January 2017 to Trump and compared the last 32 months to the previous 32 months, job totals still slowed from 7.13 million to 6.10 million.

The White House, meanwhile, believes we should actually start the clock for Trump at November 2016 -- the month of the Republican's election -- and apply the jobs created during the final months of the Obama era to the current Republican president. But that still doesn't help: if we compare the last 34 months to the previous 34 months, job totals slowed from 7.67 million to 6.48 million.

Trump continues to tell the world that he's overseeing the strongest domestic job growth in American history, which is plainly false. What's more, the White House has not yet offered an explanation for why job growth has slowed since Trump took office."

"Sanders added that he would support taxpayer-funded programs to provide abortions and birth control for women in developing countriesas a measure to combat the climate crisis."

Bernie is way behind the times on that issue, and the actual situation should be something you would imagine to be right in his wheelhouse.

Back in the '90s, the International Population Conference had some good news: the growth curve in some of the most problematic areas had significantly flattened from previous projections. We weren't out of the woods yet, but progress toward avoiding the kind of mass famine situations they were working against was far better than they had expected, and the reasons kind of surprised them.

I'm gonna try and quote the scientist doing the presentation from memory: "It turns out that curbing problematic population growth doesn't have as much to do with the mass distribution of contraceptives as we thought it would. Instead, the surprising gains were all made in places where we simply tried to improve the women's lot in life. It turns out that if women in extreme poverty have hope for their own lives, and hope for their children's lives, they have fewer children and take better care of the ones they have. This seems simple, but apparently it has taken us the whole of time so far to figure it out."

Get with it, Bernie, this is stuff you are already promoting.

The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board (WSJ) recently suggested that the Obama administration pulled off “the biggest accounting fraud in history” with student loans when eliminating the role of private lenders in the federal student lending market.

In 2010, Democrats “nationalized the market to help pay for Obama Care,” WSJ asserted. “The Congressional Budget Office at the time forecast that eliminating private lenders would save taxpayers $58 billion over 10 years. This estimate was pure fantasy, and now we’re seeing how much.”

The WSJ op-ed also highlighted the rising number of severely delinquent student loans since then and blamed the Obama administration for expanding plans in 2012 for new borrowers “to reduce defaults, buy off millennial voters and disguise the cost of its student-loan takeover.”

The editorial board then added: “This may be the biggest accounting fraud in history.”

WSJ argued that eliminating private lenders from the student loan market severely hurt Americans and that by using fair-market accounting, it becomes clear that student loans will actually cost taxpayers nearly $307 billion over the next 10 years.

Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) during the George W. Bush administration and currently president of the center-right American Action Forum, agreed that the accounting discrepancy manifested because of the “technique” used by the CBO to evaluate the cost of these loan programs.

“A widely known deficiency of the Federal Credit and Reform Act is that it does not allow the CBO to incorporate [market risk] into assessments," Holtz-Eakin told Yahoo Finance. “So the loans, when they're evaluated are evaluated as safer than they truly are, and thus, the losses are smaller than they may truly be. And there's no way around that — the techniques force you to do that.”

No babies are sacrificed in the United States except the ones Trump has killed in his "detention centers". I think the number is around seven, maybe more by now. Abortion can in no way be defined as sacrificing babies.

Yes he did cut taxes for middle income and small businesses, but trayorous wingnuts prevented the taxcuts they let Drump have, for Obama.

mike from iowa said...

Like stoopid fucking lying wingnuts conveniently forget about Obama's service is he inherited the worst recession since the dirty 30's plus the government is strapped with all the debt from dumbass dubya's illegal wars and unpaid for Medicare Part D. The best way out of a recession is government spending massive amounts to stimulate the economy.

Drumpf was handed 3rd base a foot from home plate and clims he did the heavy lifting himself. Lying like he alsways does and stoopid fucking wingnuts lap his lies like dogs licking shit.

Well, there are the infants among the 15K+ poor people who are dead because Republican states refused to expand Medicaid out of spite and hatred of a black Democratic president.
Given the maternal mortality rates in those states, I would imagine the number of babies sacrificed to their twisted ideology to be at least in the hundreds.

Climate change is a hoax.....

Anonymous said...

Man-made “climate change” is largely a myth promoted by politicians to scare the public into accepting a vast expansion of government to supposedly stop “global warming.”
Global warming is a manufactured problem played up by the government to instigate a public reaction – fear – the government then exploits to offer a predetermined solution: the expansion of government at the public’s expense.
This strategy, now known as the Hegelian Dialectic, has been used successfully by politicians for millennia to expand government, which can only grow at the expense of individual liberties.

Anon@1:20 AM, there is a big difference: CNN acknowledged their mistake and kept it popping. The idiot in chief, on the other hand, has refused to acknowledge that he made a mistake because his ego just won't let him.

Moar to the grifting story in Scotland. There is an airport within 50 miles of Turnberry GC that is failing and if it goes, so does what is left of Drumpf's golf course. He has military planes land at civilian airport to refuel and much greater cost than at American air bases and has the plane occupants shipped to his properties to pad his bottom lines.

Wish Obama could have enriched himself this way.

The Coatrsville ExPat said...

A couple of things are in order here Judge. First off, The POTUS holding the map wasn't the lie (I mean all white men are liars, right?). It was extrapolation, or forecasting a result based on existing data. Second off, as I learned after leaving the Coatesville plantation, becoming a weather observer in the USAF, I quickly learned that any forecast beyound 36 hours was a guess. Your ignorance, bigotry, and irrational hatred of all things caucasian are astounding.

Tony Rezko said...

"Wish Obama could have enriched himself this way"

When Barack Obama joined the U.S. Senate in 2005, he was a 43-year old former law professor making $85,000 a year. In the 12 years following to the end of his second term as president, he earned $20 million.

Three-fourths of that money came from lucrative book deals. In total, Obama earned $15.6 million as an author while serving in Washington. Obama made another $3.7 million from government salaries.

In January 2005, the same month he joined the Senate, he got approval from its ethics committee for a $1.9 million advance against royalties with Random House for two non-fiction books and one children’s book.

Less than two months after leaving office, Barack and Michelle Obama received a joint book deal worth $65 million.

In may of 2018 the Obama's signed a deal with Netflix for $50 million to “produce television shows and films for the streaming service.”

WSJ editorial board are a bunch of aristocratic dickheads who only care about what happens to rich people and the rest can go to hell.

For once, they are on the right side of things, but only because Trump’s profoundly stupid trade war stands to screw almost everybody, regardless of class. The rich won’t be exempted from the harm caused by this particular boneheaded policy, so they’re finally turning against him.

This is for Anons. 8:38 AM, 840:-* AM and all other delusional Climate Change deniers:

https://www.currentresults.com/Environment-Facts/changes-in-earth-temperature.phpTemperature Change Since 1880

Despite the overall increase, global temperatures have not climbed steadily during the decades. The average global annual temperature hovered around 13.7 °C (56.7 °F) from the 1880s through the 1910s.
During the 1920s to 1940s, temperatures climbed about 0.1 °C (0.18 °F) each decade. Mean global temperatures then stabilized at roughly 14.0°C (57.2 °F) until the 1980s.
The world has mainly grown hotter since 1980, at a rate of nearly 0.2 °C (0.36 °F) per decade. The annual global temperature from 2000 to 2009 was 0.61 °C (1.1 °F) higher than the average temperature for 1951 to 1980. If the current rate of increase continues, the world will warm by 2 °C (3.6 °F) in the next century.
Decade °C °F

The rich will profit handsomely from Drumpf's endless trade wars. Like vultures they wait patiently for farms to be foreclosed on so they can swoop in and buy more of America's finite and most valuable assets- farm ground.

There will be valuable businesses losing billions and up for sale. The rich will profit from drumpf's major miscues. That is why they backed him as mini-czar in the first place. They knew he would leave economic devastation behind for them to pick the carcasses clean.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/09/iran-activates-advanced-centrifuges-latest-nuclear-move-190907054456905.html

Iran activates advanced centrifuges in their Drumpf allowed quest to get nukes. Obama and European nations had a deal in place where Iran did not work to develop nukes, but crybaby Drumpf jumped into the shit and now, when Iran gets their nukes, the blame will all be the orange crybaby's fault.

Unless Drumpf declares unilateral war like a dumbfucker would do.

“The rich will profit from drumpf's major miscues. That is why they backed him as mini-czar in the first place. They knew he would leave economic devastation behind for them to pick the carcasses clean.”

Undoubtedly, there will be some who benefit from his trade war. There are always some people who do well out of calamity — disaster capitalists, vulture funders, etc, whatever you want to call them. There were some who did well out of the Great Depression.

But most won’t. The instability will harm their existing businesses. The number of rich people who stand to lose far exceeds the handful who will win.

At this point, there isn’t a very large constituency for Trump’s trade war. It consists of stupid, economically illiterate hyper nationalist morons, who aren’t a big proportion of population. But they’re diehard Trump supporters, so the president caters to them, and he doesn’t seem to care that everyone else hates this policy. It gets less popular with each passing day. Much like Trump!

Like most bullies, Mr. Trump has the emotional maturity of a ten-month old baby and lacks the ability to admit when he makes a mistake. He has no idea how ridiculous that makes him appear. Admitting one's mistakes requires courage, but the cowardly Mr. Trump has none.
