Fake News – Part Two

The Flock of Women Who Sued Trump

There was one point where I saw an article on Huffington Post with a title something like “14 Women Have Now Sued Trump for Sexual Abuse.” I read the article and it made no mention of the fact that the first 13 women who brought similar lawsuits had all been discredited and had their suits thrown out. I mentioned this to my wife and she said, “Oh, the mainstream media only reports when someone sues him. They don’t report when the lawsuit is thrown out.”

This shocked me because it would leave many in the public thinking that Trump had all these pending lawsuits against him. Doesn’t the media owe the public the whole story? Some of these cases were downright hilarious.

There was the woman who was a former executive in the Trump Corp. who sued him for having to give up her position allegedly because she refused his sexual advances. In court, it came out that not only had she never reported this violation of EEOC regulations to the EEOC or anyone else, but Trump’s attorney produced multiple personal letters she had sent to Trump after she’d left his employ asking him if she could have her job back because he was the best boss she’d ever worked for! The judge told her to take a hike.

Then there was the Miss Universe contestant who sued him for telling her she would have to lose some weight, which she took as sexual harassment, despite the fact that her contract specified she would have to maintain her weight at a specific level which she had failed to do. Then it came out in court that she had recently been released from prison after serving time for a bank robbery in which she had driven the getaway car! Take a hike!

And there was the woman who claimed Trump had physically molested her continually over a period of hours in the first class section on an airline flight. She couldn’t recall the exact date or the flight number. The FAA came to her aid by informing her that they never destroyed any passenger records on domestic or international flights. They looked at every flight Trump had taken within a couple years of when she said the incident had occurred and couldn’t find a single flight anywhere that she had been on with Donald Trump. A couple of flight attendants then testified that it would be an impossibility for a woman to be continually harassed in first class, as there is always a flight attendant there to cater to the high-end customers. Get lost!

Then there was the 13-year-old girl brought into court by her mother, claiming that Trump had molested her daughter. When the girl herself couldn’t keep her story straight about what had happened and when it happened and how it happened, changing the details with every retelling, the judge reprimanded the girl’s attorney for bringing phony lawsuits into his courtroom and told the attorney if he did this one more time, he would take steps to have him censured and disbarred.

Then it came out the amounts of money that were being offered to women to bring cases against Trump, hundreds of thousands of dollars and in one case a woman said she’d been offered two million to bring a sexual harassment case against Trump. Yet, the mainstream media ignored all of the outcomes of these lawsuits and just kept focusing on “how many” women had sued him, as if all these cases were still pending. They wanted so bad to portray him as another Harvey Weinstein that they chose to ignore the fact that all these cases were pure bullshit.

The Disabled Reporter

Then there was the time Trump waved his hands around and made a silly face when answering a reporter in a press conference. The media reported that the reporter who asked the question was disabled and that Trump was making fun of the handicapped.

When they asked Trump about it, he said he didn’t even remember the incident and he didn’t know the person who asked the question was disabled. The reporter who’d asked the question said he’d met Trump once at a social function in New York. Trump didn’t recall meeting him.

Then I saw a video of the reporter and he looked perfectly normal. His “disability” was limited to one arm that he couldn’t move. He talked perfectly normal, walked normal, just seemed like  regular guy. At a crowded press conference whether he would have been sitting or standing, no ine would even notice his disability. Then a website called “Catholics for Trump” (or something like that) posted videos of Trump waving his hands around in the same silly way on a dozen different occasions when there was no disabled person anywhere around. It was just one of his mannerisms when he was saying something sounded crazy to him.

The whole thing sounded phony because why would someone running for public office decide to start mocking disabled people? And why has no one ever seen Trump mocking disabled people before or since? Even if a public figure did actually hate the disabled, wouldn’t they keep it to themselves?

But the media and the dems refused to accept Trump’s explanation that he didn’t know the guy, didn’t know there was anything wrong with the guy, and had no personal animus toward disabled people.

Shortly after, I was sitting in a garage waiting room when getting an oil change and an ad came on the TV of an actual paraplegic child — maybe 8, 9, 10 years old — struggling to talk in the way that some paraplegics do, saying “Donald Trump makes fun of people like me. You should vote for Hillary.” (or something like that) How disgustingly sick was the person who decided to use a paraplegic child to attack a candidate on a totally bogus charge? Disgusting.

And Then There’s Immigration . . .

Immigration is the sickest fake news story of all time.

First, let’s consider the traditional republican view of illegal immigration. It was the republicans that started illegal immigration as a specific financial strategy back in the late 60s and early 70s. The democrats vehemently opposed it. How do I know this? Because I moved to California in 1967 and it was big news there for years.

The billionaires who own most of the land in California and especially the really valuable land in the wine country hired (legal) Mexican immigrants to pick grapes because they would work for beans and had few protections against abuse.

The hero of the Mexican farm workers back then was Cesar Chavez who started the United Farm Workers (UFW), a union to negotiate for fair pay and better working conditions. Unfortunately, the governor of California was a republican who hated Chavez and hated unions—Ronald Reagan.

The billionaire land owners told Reagan they were sick of Chavez and his attempts to upgrade the working conditions of the grape pickers, so when the UFW started calling for strikes and picketing, Reagan started allowing illegal immigrants across the border to work as scabs. You can read about this in Wikipedia. In fact, here’s part of what Wikipedia says:

In 1969, Chavez and members of the UFW marched through the Imperial and Coachella Valleys to the border of Mexico to protest growers’ use of illegal immigrants as strikebreakers. Joining him on the march were Reverend Ralph Abernathy and U.S. Senator Walter Mondale. In its early years, the UFW and Chavez went so far as to report illegal immigrants who served as strikebreaking replacement workers (as well as those who refused to unionize) to the Immigration and Naturalization Service.   In 1973, the United Farm Workers set up a “wet line” along the United States-Mexico border to prevent Mexican immigrants from entering the United States illegally and potentially undermining the UFW’s unionization efforts. During one such event, in which Chavez was not involved, some UFW members, under the guidance of Chavez’s cousin Manuel, physically attacked the strikebreakers after peaceful attempts to persuade them not to cross the border failed.

Chavez is still widely regarded as a hero by Mexicans in the U.S. Ultimately, he lost his fight to keep the illegal immigrants from coming in. The billionaires got what they wanted because republican governors in border states catered to the billionaires and special interests that were funding them. In fact, it got worse and they started bringing them into Texas and other states.

By the time George W. Bush was elected in 2000, there were millions of illegal immigrants in the country and he was doing nothing to stop it, despite democrats in the Senate calling him out on it. Democrats knew that the only reason republicans wanted the illegal aliens was for cheap labor. Here’s Senator Obama in 2005 complaining about Bush’s stance on illegal immigrants:

In the mid-2000s, Bush made it even easier to get the illegals into the country with a program he called “catch and release.” He made it “official” in 2008, despite the fact that it was a violation of federal law. There are videos of Senators Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi and other democrat senators in the mid-2000s similar to the video of Obama calling for Bush to stop allowing illegal immigrants to enter the country.

Obama became president in 2009, pledging to pass immigration reform, but he changed his tune when Citizens United passed in 2010. The democrats had allegedly opposed Citizens United, which took all restrictions off of donations from corporations and billionaires and the democrats started getting huge funding from the same corporate lobbyists as the republicans because big business wanted the cheap labor. Obama sold out his party and the dream of Cesar Chavez to better the lives of Mexicans who were living here legally.

Obama made expanded the catch and release system with a regulation that any illegal immigrants who entered with children had to be released into the general public within 20 days of being caught. As there was a huge backlog of dealing with illegal immigrants, Obama’s version of catch and release started flooding the country with illegal immigrants that never even had a hearing.

Why do the Koch brothers spend millions lobbying for open borders? Why have the Koch brothers pledged to spend $100 million in the coming midterm election to promote anti-Trump republicans? Illegal immigrants are used as cheap labor all over the country now, not just in California picking grapes. They’re the perfect employees from the business owners’ perspective. You can work them long hours with no overtime pay and dock their pay any amount at any time for any reason and they can’t complain. They have no rights. Their English is substandard and they don’t even know what U.S. labor laws are and it doesn’t matter because our labor laws don’t apply to anyone in the U.S. illegally. You can beat them, abuse them, sexually molest them, and they can’t complain. The EEOC doesn’t represent illegal immigrants. If they complain to any government agency about anything, they’re liable to be arrested and deported and this is the threat their employers hold over them.

Unfortunately, the democrats who used to support the UFW in its attempts to keep illegal immigrants from entering the country have become basically the same as republicans. Virtually all of the members of the Senate and Congress who have been in office any length of time are—like the republicans—multimillionaires with vast stock holdings in many of the same companies and are lobbied by the same lobbyists to keep the cheap labor supply. But the democrats’ other agenda is that they believe all of these illegals will become democrat voters if they can just get them amnesty and eventually turn them into US citizens.

Neither the republicans nor the democrats give a flying fuck about the fact that the illegals often live in squalor because the jobs they get pay so bad. Nor do they care that they end up competing with blacks and Hispanics and poor whites and push these actual American citizens into unemployment and homelessness because employers simply prefer workers they can use however they want and pay them less for more work.

But what the democrats and republicans have done is turn the immigrants’ story into a story of people who need our help, people whose lives we can make better because we’re such a rich and prosperous and generous nation of goodhearted people, when according to the U.S. Department of HUD, there are an estimated 554,000 homeless people living in the U.S. Many of these are people living on the streets, eating out of garbage cans, panhandling, many turning to theft and prostitution and drug dealing. As if the U.S. is really able to take in refugees from other countries and care for them. What a crock. We can’t take care of our own.

Cesar Chavez was right. We shouldn’t be allowing these people into the country for the financial gain of the few billionaires while the poor in our country get the raw end of the deal. The democrat and republican overlords are the true heartless racists and their evil scheme to reap $$ rewards from the abuse and suffering of not only the illegal immigrants, but the blacks and Hispanics and poor whites in our inner-city slums should be a huge scandal. But don’t expect the mainstream media to ever tell it like it is. The same people who own the politicians own the media and they are evil racist liars, just as guilty as the politicians who are doing everything they can to keep cramming more and more illegals into the U.S. Trump’s efforts to put an end to this are nothing short of heroic, with the media portraying him as the bad guy.
