“Just remember, what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening” ~ Donald Trump, 7/24/18
“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. ” ~ 1984 George Orwell
1. What you are seeing: A President named Donald Trump.
What’s really happening: Hillary Clinton was elected by a vast majority of Americans to be POTUS 45, but Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, and his team, hacked into our voting system, manipulating the outcome in key states, thereby giving Trump the win by way of the electoral college. Exit polls did not correlate with the tally. They stole the presidency.
2. What’s happening: Rudy Giuliani tells us Donald Trump’s comments on tape are “exculpatory”, prove his innocence, because in them Trump tells his attorney Michael Cohen to write a check in order to preserve proper documentation of a transaction.
What you’re really hearing: An audio tape of Donald Trump telling his attorney Michael Cohen, a month before the presidential election, to pay Trump’s friend at The National Enquirer, $150k in cash. The cash buyout was in exchange for the “exclusive” rights to Playboy model Karen McDougal’s story of her affair with with Donald Trump. The purpose— to keep the story out of the press. The affair took place about the same time (shark week) Trump had sex with porn star Stormy Daniels. Trump’s third wife (Melanie?) had given birth to their son, just weeks before. (Antibiotics all around.)
3. What you’re reading:
Paul Ryan tweets about the success of his ingenious tax plan, the results of which are an increase, over the next 10 years, in take home pay for the “average” American of $18,943.
The truth: I’m no mathematician, but Paul Ryan’s choice of words— “average” rather than “median” is another attempt to deceive the public. If 1000 Americans get $1, and one billionaire gets $1 million, the “average” each American will get is $1,000 per person. It doesn’t change the fact that all but one person will receive only $1… and his claim is over 10 years.
Additionally, to pay for that gift to corporate America and the wealthiest 1% of the population, Ryan is cutting Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, Food Stamps, and has sabotaged the Affordable Care Act. It is estimated over the next 3 years, the cost of healthcare for a family of 4 will increase by $5,000.
Here are some numbers for you Pauly:
The number of people who go bankrupt every year because of medical bills:
Britain – 0
France – 0
Germany – 0
Netherlands – 0
Sweden – 0
Japan – 0
Canada – 0
The United States – 643,000
4. What Trump says: My tariffs are saving jobs.
What you’re reading: American farmers are to receive a $12 billion emergency bail out, from Trump (taxpayers), in order to offset the losses they will sustain as a result of Trump’s tariffs.
Trump, great (failed) business man that he is, can not bail out (with our money) every industry his tariffs destroy.
5. What they’re telling us: Migrant parents will be reunited with their children by July 27, as per court order.
What has happened: After kidnapping and abusing 2300 children, the US may have deported nearly 500 migrant parents without their children. No real effort has been made to reunite any of these families.
6. What you’re reading: The Russians are going to cheat in the next election because they want Democrats to win.
The truth: It is an acknowledged fact that Russia waged a cyber war against the U.S. and won. Their goal was to put Donald Trump in the White House. Since then, the GOP has done nothing to secure our voting system, because they want to stay in power, and unless they cheat, they will not.
And speaking of power:
