The Liars Club: Truth Edition—The Cult of Trumpism

A blog category briefly showcasing the “my-goal-is-to-destroy-democracy” lies of the president of the Liars Club, Donald Trump and his blind and groveling cronies.

As you know (surely you know, right?), a delusional Donald Trump continues to push his 2020 anti-democracy, pro-autocracy election lies.

I am so thankful that there are Truth Tellers willing to call him out.

Such as SE Cupp …

It’s a three-minute difficult but truthful video exposition ….

(Give it a few seconds to get through a commercial and download.)

The Liars Club: Foxy Liars

A blog category briefly showcasing the “my-goal-is-to-destroy-democracy” lies of the president of the Liars Club, Donald Trump and his blind and groveling cronies.

Fox News, terrified of the truth of democracy, is lying as usual …

Liar. Liar. Liar.

The Jan. 6 committee is painstakingly, truthfully, courageously documenting the Fat Liar‘s attempt to overturn our democracy in America.

May his and his cohorts’ horrendous, anti-Anerican voices be silenced.

The Difficult Truth of 1619 — #7

A blog category examining the difficult yet enlightening truth found in The 1619 Project.

“Donald Trump’s false claims of electoral fraud in the wake of the 2020 presidential election were an expression of the idea that only certain majorities are real majorities, that only some Americans deserve to hold power.”

“And while Trump lost and left office, the idea persists.”

“Rather than mobilize new voters or persuade existing ones, Republicans throughout the country have set about restricting access to the forms of voting that helped Democrats win in traditionally Republican states like Georgia and Arizona.”

“In Michigan, likewise, Republican lawmakers want to change the way the state distributes its Electoral College votes to nullify the influence of Detroit [overwhelmingly Black] on the final result.” p. 208

May our democracy survive this extremist far-right onslaught of truth, integrity and American values.

The Liars Club — Ignorant Ones

A blog category briefly showcasing the “my-goal-is-to-destroy-democracy” lies of the president of the Liars Club, Donald Trump and his blind and groveling cronies.

Still?

Two years later?

Seriously?

No.

The Liar lost.

He lost.

He lost.

He lost.

Which means that Trump is a delusional loser.

And his blind followers are, well, blind to truth.

The Liars Club — Meeting One

A blog category briefly showcasing the “my-goal-is-to-destroy-democracy” lies of the president of the Liars Club, Donald Trump and his blind and groveling cronies.

************

Have you heard about the Liars Club? It’s a sad and dangerous organization with the primary aim of destroying our democracy in the United States. Its leader and president? Well, Donald Trump of course. Elected unanimously as the #1 Liar in Our Nation. He’s proud of the fact that he received more votes than any candidate for any race in the history of the world. Also The Liars Club meetings see the largest crowds in the history of human gatherings!

************

Let’s begin with perhaps Trump’s most blatant, dangerous, anti-democracy and enduring lie. Here are his disingenuous words the morning after the 2020 election, with literally millions of votes in key states yet to be counted (including my own pivotal state of Georgia).

“I want to thank the American people for their tremendous support. Millions and millions of people voted for us tonight. And a very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people and we won’t stand for it.” Donald Trump 2020 Election Night Speech Transcript

And in a White House speech: “If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us.”

Donald Trump is a Liar.

Donald Trump did not win the 2020 election.

Donald Trump lost the 2020 election.

My Georgia was incredibly important in that clear Biden victory. And my REPUBLICAN state leaders (Governor, Lt Governor, Secretary of State and Chief Elections Officer), again ALL REPUBLICAN, told my state and the nation that Trump was a liar. They painstakingly documented Biden’s win. Oh, and recounted the votes THREE TMES.

As a matter of fact, they are up in Washington DC even as I write this blog post, telling the January 6 commission the same thing: Donald Trump cannot be believed because he was and is a Liar.

LET’S MAKE AMERICA TRUTHFUL AGAIN.

Let’s reject the Liar’s Lies.

Are We Living in a Post Decorum World? A Call for Kindness

A new blog category examining how our lack of civility today is causing horrendous harm. And perhaps what we can do in our own tiny worlds to make our big world more kind.

My mother and father, decades ago, taught me, more by example than word, to be polite, to say “Thank you” and “I’m sorry.” To give others the benefit of the doubt. To be KIND. I most definitely HAVE NOT always lived up to their instructions, but I always harbored them (instructions and parents) in my mind and heart.

My folks have passed away now.

I am beginning to fear that maybe common civility and etiquette (two of kindness’s offspring) have passed away as well.

Recently watching Ketanji Brown Jackson garnering enough votes in the Senate to become the first black woman ever to become a justice on the Supreme Court in its nearly 250 year history, I was shocked, embarrassed, appalled to see the Republican side of the aisle get up and walk stoically, rudely out of the chamber after the tally had been announced.

Political and ideological side-ings aside, what has happened to common courtesy? Jackson won enough votes to be seated. Why not at least applaud (even if with gritted teeth) the historic First Time Ever?

At this year’s supposedly celebratory Oscars, Chris Rock and Will Smith … well, you know.

At nearly every red light (at least here in Savannah), you DO NOT start to drive forward when the light turns green. Even though, as I learned in kindergarten, green means go. Why not, for heaven’s sake? Because folks now keep speeding, barreling through the red light for five, ten seconds after the light changes. That early greenness at traffic lights has now become Guillotine Green.

Controversial House of Representatives member Marjorie Taylor Greene (from my Georgia) insanely screeches for Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg and husband Chasten to stay out of girls’ bathrooms! What? Huh?

President Biden hot-mike-ly refers to a Fox News correspondent as a “stupid SOB.”

Trump …. Don’t get me started.

The other day, Yankees fans throw debris at Cleveland Guardians outfielders at game’s end.

WHAT IS GOING ON?

Are we so politically, culturally, ideologically separated that common courtesy, simple kindness, and for-the-good-of-all common sense have left the room?

Are we in such a hurry to “Get There!” that we will risk our lives and the lives of others (even our babies in child seats as I saw recently) to risk it through the Green Guillotine?

Is Simple Kindness sliding down the hierarchy of Best Human Practices?

I hope not. But I just don’t know. This blog category examines those questions.

Suggestion For This Moment: I encourage you to set forth a little INTENTION to simply pay more ATTENTION to how you treat other people in your life TODAY. Family at home. Coworkers. Folks on the street, in nearby cars, at the checkout line, etc. Just try to bring AWARENESS to the dynamics of your human connections for the rest of this day. I will too.
