Donald Trump, Fear Monger

In almost every possible way, Donald Trump is the worst U.S. politician in more than a generation. He lies about everything, literally on a daily basis. In previous posts I’ve pointed out that independent fact checkers tell us that only around 10% of what he says is fully true.

What’s worse, he lies about things in a deliberate effort to instill fear. A few days ago he sent out this Tweet:

Inner-city crime is reaching record levels. African-Americans will vote for Trump because they know I will stop the slaughter going on!

Did you know there was a “slaughter” going on? And it’s happening at “record levels”!

Frightening … and false.

FBI statistics only go up to 2014, and there has been a slight uptick in violence recently, but we are nowhere near “record levels” of crime, not in the inner-cities nor elsewhere. PolitiFact rates this Tweet as a “Pants on Fire” lie. (Just one of many of his statements to receive that rating.)

By the way, he never discloses exactly how he plans on making us “safe again.”  He just tells us, with a straight face, that he is “the only one” who can do it.

How do people fall for this nonsense?

Trump understands that he cannot win on the merits of his positions (what are his positions?), nor his experience. So he screams that we are a third-rate country teeming with crime and violence. And of course on a daily basis he pushes the fear buttons when it comes to immigrants. Listen to his speeches and you apparently should be scared to walk out your front door because some Mexican or Muslim is lurking out there, waiting to kill you.

He is truly disgusting.

Thanks for caring about the truth.

    Whatever you can say about Trump pales in comparison to the lies that Hillary Clinton has made with a straight face to the American public. It’s disgusting watching the re-runs of her interviews regarding the subject of her emails. She by far is the most dangerous and corrupt presidential nominee ever. It is unbelievable how the media has protected her. Her handlers won’t even allow her to be interviewed by the press for fear of how she might respond to their queries.

    Yes, Trump is not a smooth Politician. He’s not even a Politician. Yet, a man who has built such an incredible financial empire around the world is not stupid. Who is stupid id the Democratic party for putting up Hillary Clinton as their candidate for the presidency. Are you telling me that there wasn’t one qualified Senator, Governor, congressman (Male or Female) that wasn’t qualified to run? Was Bernie Sanders the only one willing to challenge the Democratic Party’s Candidate? Trump had to beat 16 candidates who spent millions trying to beat him in the primary. –

    It’s pointless for me to argue with you Ken. I once asked you whether you were in favor of all of Obama’s policies. You said yes. You lost me at that point. If you have money, You should love Obama; he’s made a lot of rich people richer. If you are a working stiff, leaving from paycheck to paycheck, you and have been screwed these past 8 years. – If you are black, you’ve been screwed these past 8 years. If you are Hispanic, you’ve been screwed these past 8 years – If you think by electing Hillary with the continuation of the Obama policies and higher taxes is going to turn this Country around and improve the economy and our world standing, you are either lying to yourself or delusional. The media and the Washington elite will do everything they can do or, say to make sure an outsider to Washington politics does not get elected and upset that Status Quo.

    I expect the debates this month to be very interesting –

    Here is REAL INSANITY! –

    A shot across the bow to my Liberal friends – A frightening picture coming soon to your cities in America if the Liberal’s position on immigration from Syria and other war-torn nations is allowed to continue through Obama’s policy, and carried on by Hillary Clinton should she be elected President.

    Ken, we may disagree on many political viewpoints but this story, told by a female physician in Germany is frightening and truly a harbinger of what will occur in our country given the “political correctness” and if the Liberal naivety on immigration remains dominate in the Democratic platform and in the Liberal media. Say what you want but, on this issue, Trump’s position on immigration is correct; just look at what’s happened in Germany and other countries in Europe. – I and millions of Americans believe America will be next if Hillary gets elected.

    A female physician in Munich, Germany sends a message to the world—
    I did Google this and indeed it is accurate.

    A Female Physician in Munich, Germany sends a message to the world! Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals. Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we, women, are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse.

    Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units. Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them. If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash. This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: “So, cure them here yourselves!” So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.

    Truly we said openly: Where are all those who had welcomed in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations?! Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them. Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million.

    Most of these people are completely unemployable. A bare minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and neglected. If this continues and Germany re-opens its borders, I’m going home to the Czech Republic.

    Nobody can keep me here in this situation, not even double the salary than at home. I went to Germany, not to Africa or the Middle East. Even the professor who heads our department told us how sad it makes him to see the cleaning woman, who for 800 Euros cleans every day for years, and then meets young men in the hallways who just wait with their hand outstretched, want everything for free, and when they don’t get it they throw a fit. I really don’t need this! But I’m afraid that if I return, that at some point it will be the same in the Czech Republic.

    If the Germans, with their culture cannot handle this, then in the Czech Republic, it would be total chaos. Nobody who has not come in contact with them has no idea what kind of animals they are, especially the ones from Africa, and how Muslims act superior to our staff, regarding their religious accommodation. For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time.

    In a hospital near the Rhine, migrants attacked the staff with knives after they had handed over an 8-month-old on the brink of death, which they had dragged across half of Europe for three months. The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished. The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email.

    What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife? Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d go straight to jail and later to court.

    With these people – so far, nothing has happened. And so I ask, where are all those greeters and receivers from the train stations? Sitting pretty at home, enjoying their non-profits and looking forward to more trains and their next batch of cash from acting like greeters at the stations. If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants. Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help.Is this “situation” coming to America? Australia? New Zealand? Canada? England? etc., etc….
