THIS IS WHAT A LYING SACK OF ELEPHANT DUNG LOOKS LIKE…
The sack is marked “SUGAR” – but the stink from it reveals the truth: The sack contains Elephant dung.
Why elephant dung and not some other kind of dung? The symbol of the GOP – the elephant.
The GOP picked Trump. Trump picked Paul Manafort to be in charge of his Orwellian “Ministry of Truth” – to then deny the truth about the Melania speech plagiarism. This has been the modus operandi of Trump – deny everything and never admit to a mistake. History revision. Those upper class blue book social snobs live in their own fantasy world anyway. I was in favor of Trump. I wanted a businessman in the White House instead of another lying politician. Trump turned out to be not the kind of businessman I had in mind. He is worse then lying politicians, but not as bad as Hillary Clinton – the Queen of All Lies. Therefore, I’ll vote for Johnson-Weld.
Later today, the truth came out from the “ghost writer” responsible for the mistake the others would not admit to.
Paul Manafort totally obliterated his credibility live on CNN, going against the known obvious truth. I’d like to see him get back on CNN tomorrow morning and explain his claims from Wednesday morning – blaming Clinton, blaming the news media, blaming everyone but those who are guilty, as well as denying anything wrong was done. He has made himself the King of All Lies, even more so than Trump himself.
Even more disappointing, Chris Christi – who I’ve been strongly in favor of – told the same lies. Then Newt “the Grinch” Gingrich jumped on the same wagon of lies carrying sacks of elephant dung labeled SUGAR.
Former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was dumped by Trump when Ivanka Trump demanded he be fired – she threatened to leave the campaign – the “him or me” kind of threat. Thus, Paul Manafort became the new Minister of Truth.
I don’t want another lying politician (or a lying businessman) in the White House. “Make America Great Again”? “Make America First Again”? I say, “Make America Honest Again” – then First and Greatness will follow. A vote for Johnson-Weld is a vote for truth.
“In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
For a “businessman” instead of a “lying politician” in The White House, I’d not have cared if he or she were to be a Democrat or Republican, Liberal or Conservative – but I’d have preferred an Independent, averaging out to be a Centrist like me – similar to Libertarians – for the best of both worlds.
With Obama in the White House, Republicans fought hard to gain control of Congress – House and Senate. They got it. Then they did NOTHING with it. Why? It wasn’t totally Obama’s fault. It was mainly because of greater division forming within the GOP than between Conservative Republicans and Liberal Democrats. Some Republicans claiming other Republicans are not true Conservatives. Ted Cruz led the revolt not only to shut down traditional Republicans and prevent them from gaining any ground, but also the goal to shut down the government. If it were not for Cruz and his ilk, the Republicans could have gained a lot of ground by vetoing any of Obama’s vetoes. They could have stopped Obama Care, but Cruz stood in the way – wanting to punish all Americans for electing Obama – twice – and especially to punish traditional Republicans who he has despised. The end result is Cruz doing as much damage as Obama did. Cruz continues to be a thorn in the political process. No matter how much water goes into the political toilet, some turds will not flush. Time to call Roto-Rooter. Dump the two extremes – far left and far right for a more reasonable political middle. Vote for Libertarians Johnson-Weld, both former Republicans twice elected governors of blue Democrat states.
Update 9:00pm CT Wednesday night 20 July 2016…
However, Ted Cruz just made an excellent speech at the Republican National Convention. If only he had talked about the major issues during the primary like he just did, instead of spending so much time condemning the other candidates – especially Trump, then he might have won the GOP nomination. During this speech, Cruz did NOT endorse Trump, very likely because he does not consider Trump to be conservative enough – not as extreme far right as Cruz himself is. Cruz continues to be divisive within the Republican Party, and by doing so he is indirectly giving aid to the Democratic Party – his actions will help Hillary Clinton to win on 8 November 2016. As is, Cruz vs. Trump amounts to despicable vs. despicable. Trump’s own behavior will also help Hillary Clinton to become the next U.S. President.
