Ah, the collective I.Q. Lies and smears seem to have a longer half life than nuclear waste, while the truth struggles to survive. Alleged sordid, scandalous behavior sells while the boring and sterile truth seems to lose life and withers on the vine.
The Mass media has heretofore been adept at manipulating the masses. However, in the sea change that has occurred throughout the entire 2016 primary process and election, veracity has been thrown a life line.
While the alternative news can be partially credited; the populace was not fooled by the administration's twisted rhetoric regarding economic conditions as well as the divide and conquer war being waged. They became disgusted by the continued assertions that things were so much better than when the present administration assumed the White House.
The approved narrative did not match what was happening in the trenches. The lack of good paying jobs, skyrocketing health care costs, and social discord could not be spun into Utopia, no matter how hard the operators juiced up the spin cycle.
Unable to accept defeat, the "loyal opposition" reached into the tool box and pulled out the time honored smear campaign wrench. Unfortunately for them, the accusations were debunked, and most of the suffering public did not fall for the lies. Nevertheless, the lies continued to be repeated by the desperate, the anguished, and the elites.
Through it all, Trump pulled through courtesy of the disgusted working and middle classes, left wing arrogance and condescension, as well as alternative news aources. He is neither the Messiah, nor is he perfect. He is human. He was duly elected. Let's see what he can do, despite the fact that his enemies are legion.
The Top 10 Trump Myths
Submitted by Gavin McInnes via TakiMag.com,
Fake news site Buzzfeed just published a fake news story that is so fake, it’s not even fake news. “It’s just fake,” as Kellyanne Conway put it. The editor of Buzzfeed himself says he has
“serious reason to doubt the allegations in it,” but he published it
anyway because this is “how we see the job of reporters in 2017.” So,
the role of reporters is to just barf out whatever anyone throws at
them? The dossier implicates the president-elect in everything from
being a stooge for the Russian government to demanding women pee on him. It’s written like a prank from our side to lampoon how gullible and biased their side is. It’s also a good jumping-off point to discuss 10 other myths about our next president.
(1) TRUMP IS AN ADMITTED SEXUAL PREDATOR
LORD in heaven above am I sick of talking about a private conversation
two guys had in a bus 11 years ago. I’m honestly stunned this devoured
so much of the presidential election. It’s completely irrelevant, but if
you really want to get into the nitty-gritty of the whole thing, it’s
the opposite of sexist. That’s right. Trump was marveling at what
groupies let you get away with and saying it’s crazy. It’s the same as
the time he said he could
“shoot somebody” in the middle of Fifth Avenue and get away with it.
The tone was “Can you believe this shit? These women will basically let
you do anything.” Megyn Kelly said he “grabbed women against their will.” This is a lie. He said, “They let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
The real problem here is that people revile Trump so much they can’t imagine women adore him as much as, say, Elvis,
who kissed whoever he wanted whenever he wanted. Sorry, libs, money and
power are a bigger aphrodisiac than being a “feminist ally.”
(2) TRUMP MOCKED A HANDICAPPED REPORTER
as frustrated by these myths as I am? Why would anyone on earth brag
about randomly grabbing women by the vagina? Why would anyone mock a
handicapped reporter? Insulting someone just because they’re handicapped
is something you might do when you’re 7 years old and then deeply
regret it when you’re 8. Meryl Streep won a lifetime achievement award
at the Golden Globes and dedicated her entire speech to criticizing
Trump for making fun of a crippled reporter. He wasn’t. He was making
the same flustered gesture he makes to mimic everyone he sees as
flustered. Video of him doing this to everyone is very easy to dig up (I
made one too), but that doesn’t stop the likes of The Washington Post from claiming our “assertions are not supported by video evidence.”
(3) TRUMP’S BANKRUPTCIES PROVE HE’S A BAD BUSINESSMAN
is yet another example of people who have never tried something judging
those who have actually done it. I’ve been an entrepreneur my whole
life. You’re pretty much looking at 12 failures for every successful
venture. When you run hundreds of businesses, bankruptcies are an
Also, lots of companies took advantage of bankruptcy laws in the
1990s. This was a problem with the system and its roots are in
government intervention. It’s like the real estate collapse. Yes, Wall
Streeters took advantage of the collapse, but that money was just
sitting on the floor. It was sitting there because big government
decided every black and Hispanic person in the country deserved a
(4) TRUMP’S A HYPOCRITE BECAUSE CHINA MANUFACTURED HIS TIES
The same answer applies to this question. When everyone is cheating, to play by the rules is to lose. I made action figures
for my old company many years ago and was determined to make them in
America. I quickly learned this wouldn’t just make them expensive, it
would make them so expensive we couldn’t do the project. That’s the
world we are living in. It’s not a fantasy and it’s not based on what
you would like to happen. Trump wants to get us to the point where we
don’t have to outsource manufacturing to stay not just competitive, but
(5) TRUMP’S INHERITANCE WOULD HAVE MADE MORE MONEY IN THE STOCK MARKET
these are broke people scoffing at a businessman who made billions.
Trump got $40 million in equity when his father died and today he’s
worth $3.7 billion.
Getting a million dollars and not blowing it all is an accomplishment.
Look at lottery winners or retired athletes. According to economist Matt Palumbo,
if Trump invested $40M in the market, today he would have $1.91 billion
after tax. This assumes dozens of variables against Trump including the
assumption he could liquidate his inheritance. At any rate, even when
we throw liberals a bone with this hypothetical scenario he ends up
almost $2 billion poorer.
(6) HE SAID “MEXICANS ARE RAPISTS”
A fun game to
play with liberals is to demand, “What exact sentence did this person
say that is factually incorrect?” He never said all Mexicans are
rapists. He said,
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best.… They’re
bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I
assume, are good people.” His point was that a disproportionate number
of the illegals who cross the border are rapists. I’d say 80% is a fairly disproportionate number. The age of consent there is 12. They’re certainly not NOT rapists.
(7) TRUMP WILL OVERTURN ROE V. WADE AND GAY MARRIAGE
have no idea where this comes from, but abortion is pretty much the
only thing I can get women to cite as a reason they chose Hillary over
him. They seem to think he’s going to shut down Planned Parenthood and
make abortions completely impossible in America despite absolutely zero
evidence or any quote that even implies that.
The gays say the same thing about gay marriage, and when pressed for
evidence, they say Mike Pence wants gays to be electrocuted. Trump has
never implied he wants to do anything about gay marriage. His exact
“It’s done.” Also, Pence never pushed for electroshock therapy for
gays. His website once implied AIDS money should be redirected to “those
seeking to change their sexual behavior.” Incidentally, if you got AIDS
at a circuit party on meth after having sex nonstop for 36 hours,
change your sexual behavior.
(8) TRUMP IS A BIGOT
Trump is the opposite of a bigot. He is Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack,
a loud, obnoxious blowhard who wants to party with anyone and everyone,
right now. In fact, that’s what the old-money bigots hate about him.
His country clubs refuse to cater to the elitism that defines most
clubs. If you’re black or Jewish or a weird immigrant grocer but you’ve
got the money to join, come on in.
Trump’s exposure to blacks has been the employed family men he worked
with on job sites and the educated elites he’s worked with in business.
He’s never lived near the ghetto. If anything, his life experience with
blacks is abnormally positive. In other words, he likes them more than
As for Jews,
all his adult kids are having sex with a Jew right now. His businesses
are crammed to the ceiling with Chosen Ones. How can Jews not get this? I
think their obsession with Nazis has been going on for so long, they’ve
brainwashed themselves into being petrified of anyone who seems Aryan
and alpha, even when the guy is on their side.
Do I need to include gays in this list? Sorry, LGBTQ, Trump doesn’t
have a stance on you. He doesn’t care about you. Actually, we’re all
pretty bored of you, to be honest. We’re not homophobes, we’re
(9) TRUMP WANTS TO DEPORT MUSLIMS
My reaction to
most of these myths is “I wish.” Trump never said one thing about
deporting Muslims. He didn’t even suggest a database of Muslims living
in America. That was a reporter’s idea.
All Trump said was he’d like to have a
“shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s
representatives can figure out what is going on.” This was during a time
of unprecedented attacks on America, France, Britain, and Canada.
Almost without fail, when we learn about these Muslim terrorists, we
discover they spent time in a Muslim country being further radicalized
and trained to better attack us. Would have been nice if we caught them
on the way in or the way back in.
Of course, this idea—and it was an idea, not a dictum—gets morphed
into an America where Muslims are randomly picked up off the street and
thrown in a van. Indian millionaires like Aziz Ansari can moan that
Trump makes him scared for his family and The New York Times bawls their eyes out.
(10) TRUMP’S WALL WON’T HAPPEN BECAUSE MEXICO SAID SO
Ex-president Vicente Fox keeps telling us he’s
“not going to pay for that fucking wall,” like anyone asked him. Dude,
you haven’t been president for over a decade, shut up. Nobody asked you
or Enrique what you think of our plan.
We spend $58 billion
more on Mexican goods than they spend on us. If a restaurant were
making that much money off of you, you could ask for a seat by the
window. You could also ask for a wall. Add to that the estimated $100 billion illegals cost us and coming down hard on immigration becomes very profitable. That’s more than enough for the $8–10 billion the wall will cost. Barack wasted that on Obamacare alone.
There are problems with Trump. I’m not nuts about him hiring his son-in-law and I don’t get why he’s making fun of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s
ratings. However, the left is too lazy to dig up anything valid so they
stick to drama-club myths that make great headlines. This might have
been effective if we hadn’t all figured out that the mainstream media is
#FakeNews. Lie all you want about the president-elect, we’re no longer
