INTERACTIVE GRAPH: In 558 Days President Trump Has Made 4,230 False Or Misleading Claims

By jazz_music following x   2018 Aug 1, 8:13pm 5,303 views   49 comments   watch   nsfw   quote     share    


The rate of Trump's lying has been increasing now for a few months. (concave upwards) He must not be encountering a lot of resistance.
THE BS
“Collusion is not a crime, but that doesn’t matter because there was No Collusion (except by Crooked Hillary and the Democrats)!”
THE FACT CHECK:
Trump long maintained there was no collusion, but now he claims collusion is not even a crime. He's playing games with words. Conspiracy to defraud the government is certainly a crime. No evidence has emerged of any collusion between the Democrats and Russia, whereas evidence has emerged of many contacts between Trump campaign officials and Russian-linked individuals.

The whole article is interactive and can be tailored in so many ways.

Don't forget the NY Times full page of Trump's lies

It seems that tabulating and fact checking Trump's lies has become a cottage industry.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE

His aim is to undermine peoples’ perceptions of the world, so they never know what is really happening.

Trump has baited the press with a flurry of potential cabinet picks, instigated a bizarre fight with the cast of a Broadway musical, and concealed his true policy priorities behind a thicket of conflicting reports.

It’s working. The media’s coverage of the Trump transition is blurry and confused. Stories that should be real scandals — such as Trump’s apparent efforts to manipulate international diplomacy for personal financial gain — get lost in the shuffle.

Non-linear warfare
Bannon is a skilled practitioner of the “darkness” strategy, but he is not its inventor. The real Master of the Dark Arts is another Karl Rove equivalent: Vladislav Surkov, a top adviser to Russian President Vladimir Putin.


Surkov, the documentary journalist Adam Curtis said in a 2014 film, is “a hero of our time.” He went on to describe the Surkovian method:

Surkov turned Russian politics into a bewildering, constantly changing piece of theater. He sponsored all kinds of groups, from neo-Nazi skinheads to liberal human rights groups. He even backed parties that were opposed to President Putin.

But the key thing was, that Surkov then let it be known that this was what he was doing, which meant that no one was sure what was real or fake. As one journalist put it: “It is a strategy of power that keeps any opposition constantly confused.”

A ceaseless shape-shifting that is unstoppable because it is undefinable. It is exactly what Surkov is alleged to have done in the Ukraine this year. In typical fashion, as the war began, Surkov published a short story about something he called non-linear war. A war where you never know what the enemy are really up to, or even who they are. The underlying aim, Surkov says, is not to win the war, but to use the conflict to create a constant state of destabilized perception, in order to manage and control.


Bannon and Trump deployed that strategy with aplomb throughout the primary. Because of the constant media focus on his campaign, Trump was able to bombard the airwaves with an unending stream of surreal falsehoods. At the same time, Bannon turned Breitbart News into a Trump Party organ and used it to disseminate further confusion. Independent of Trump and Bannon, a number of other fake news sites — an improbable number of which happened to be headquartered in Macedonia — inundated social media with inaccurate information. There is some evidence to suggest that Surkov’s employer contributed to the process as well, using the website Wikileaks as a conduit.


Bizarre circus so you have no idea what is real or who to trust.

This is what has been happening to you!

Koch has changed sides? --bizarre huh?

All this...."he lied" nonsense, is just nonsense. Trump has been very successful as a President. His approval ratings are higher than Obama's.
He won the election once, and with his unexpected phenomenal success in handling the economy and foreign affairs, he will obviously win again by a much larger margin.
