Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion; Everyone’s entitled to Alternative Facts. Cool.

LIES- The Knickerbockers

You think that you’re such a smart girl
And I’ll believe what you say
But who do you think you are, girl
To lead me on this way hey
Lies, lies
I can’t believe a word you say
Lies, lies
Are gonna make you sad someday
Some day you’re gonna be lonely
But you won’t find me around
Lies, lies
A-breakin’ my heart…

Washington Post:

“Why put him (press secretary Sean Spicer) out there for the very first time, in front of that podium, to utter a provable falsehood?” Chuck Todd of NBC asked Kellyanne Conway …. referring to the dustup over the crowd count at the inauguration… “It’s a small thing, but the first time he confronts the public, it’s a falsehood?”

After some tense back and forth, Conway offered this:

Don’t be so overly dramatic about it, Chuck. You’re saying it’s a falsehood, and they’re giving — our press secretary, Sean Spicer, gave alternative facts to that. But the point really is —

At this point, a visibly exasperated Todd cut in. “Wait a minute. Alternative facts? Alternative facts? Four of the five facts he uttered . . . were just not true. Alternative facts are not facts; they’re falsehoods.”

bk: ALTERNATIVE FACTS…..Game, Set, Match. Bring out the trophy. The contest is over. The United States of Insanity has its queen, Kellyanne Conway, counselor to the President of the United States… Donald J. Trump, the anti-George Washington. “I cannot tell the truth,” is his credo, and he has his Pussy Posse of Prevaricators, led by Kellyanne, the Majorette leading this Baton Brigade of Bullshit. ALTERNATIVE FACTS…. Dick Nixon spun around in his grave to send a tweet of congratulations to Trump. “It took me years to accomplish what you have in just a few days being president… lying with world-class arrogant impunity and compiling an enviable enemies list . Well done, Donald! signed, Dick” ALTERNATIVE FACTS…. George Orwell just checked in with Kudos For Kellyanne! “When I came up with the idea of Doublespeak, I never dreamed one as lovely as you could take it to a new level of deception… War Is Peace. Freedom Is Slavery. Trump Won In A Landslide. You go, girl..” ALTERNATIVE FACTS…. Stephen Colbert’s “truthiness,” a quality characterizing a “truth” that a person making an argument or assertion claims to know intuitively “from the gut” or because it “feels right” without regard to evidence, logic, intellectual examination, or facts… was named Word of the Year for 2005 by the American Dialect Society and for 2006 by Merriam-Webster. The world progresses (regresses?) and ALTERNATIVE FACTS, which of course by definition are lies, supplants truthiness forever!

No Class Oaf Kicks Off 2020 Campaign For Reelection In Darkest, Angriest, Ugliest Inaugural Address Ever… His Fans Dig It, Of Course

I KNEW TRUMP WAS INCAPABLE of even the slightest hint of humanity, but the darkness of this speech was beyond that. A third-rate version of his campaign appearances… minus the always crowd pleasing recitiation of primary victories, the size of the crowd, and some shots at the dishonest press. No shining city on a hill, but a third-rate, disheveled slum, is the country he leads. Well we’re living here in Allentown. And they’re closing all the factories down. Only I can fix it. Certainly no “ask what you do for your country.” The only thing we have to fear is Trump himself. Remember, he’s doing us a favor by giving up his life for this.

Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway explains he’s actually settling and we should all appreciate that. In fact, Conway said Friday morning on FOX, President Trump made “enormous sacrifices” to become president. “He actually gave up more money, more power, more prestige, more position than he will have,” she said.

American nationalism to the world; bite-me-if-you-didn’t-vote-for-me to the electoral majority of Hillaryville. The world is put on notice: not just America First, but America First and Only. No gracious tip of the hat to previous presidents. It’s not what he does. Repeal the recent past and he’ll get back to you with the details. Let the world know, from this day forward, that the contents of Donald Trump’s Inaugural Speech were merely the seeds immediately planted for his reelection. He will soon hit the rally trail again, quoting himself from what he’ll term as the greatest inaugural speech ever. The crowd will cheer the brag… he’ll soak up the love… and they will eat up the idea of the Trump Permanent Campaign.  Why really run something when it’s more fun to run for something?

Even Paul Anka, F.O.D, HAS NOW COME UP WITH AN EXCUSE TO PULL OUT OF SINGING FOR TRUMP’S INAUGURATION

 

FOD (friend of Donald), 75-year old Paul Anka, is not too old or too dumb to keep having children in his Social Security years.  So, at an age when a normal person is trying to decide which blood-thinning miracle drug they should be on, Anka’s still playing Kramer vs. Kramer. This, of course, makes my hard work on new song lyrics for him pointless, irrelevant, and not nearly as funny.  It’s all about me, of course. Thanks, Paul. Via The Wrap:

Anka says that Trump is a long-time friend of his and personally invited him to perform at the inauguration gala ball at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, where he would have perform “My Way” as Trump danced with his wife, Melania.  Instead, Anka had to cancel due to a scheduling change in an ongoing custody case for his son. Anka said that he had always been planning to perform on Jan. 20 “for the office and for our country.”  More here

He never backed out on Lisa Simpson….

Depending on your purient interest level, here’s Paul talking about life at home with the National Enquirer in 2009:

On Dec. 3, Anna Aberg, a sexy blonde fitness author who has been wed to Anka for only a year, called 911 from the couple’s Thousand Oaks, Calif., mansion during a domestic dispute.

Anna – author of The 30-Minute Pregnancy Workout Book – claimed Paul had pulled a gun on her during a heated argument about a member of their household staff.

Paul says he explained to police that he had moved out of the house and was living in a nearby hotel. But that on the day of the incident, he had gone to the home to take their young children to school. Paul and Anna began to argue about an employee she had fired, he says he explained to officers.

Paul told The ENQUIRER that he also placed a call to cops.

“Anna locked herself and the nanny in the laundry room and started screaming at the top of her lungs,” Paul revealed.

“Our kids were in the kitchen, hearing Anna scream, so they started freaking out crying. Anna went ballistic, she finally comes out and shoves me and then calls 911.”

When the cops arrived to the Anka home, they reported no visible injuries and no arrests were made.

This isn’t the first time the couple has had a run-in with the law. Last year, Anna, 38, was arrested for felony domestic battery after she threw a piece of ice at Paul, splitting his head open.

At the time, Paul refused to press charges and the matter was dropped.

Brad Gets The Last-Minute Phone Call To Rescue The Inauguration Of Donald J. Trump!

 

When I saw this headline my heart raced with excitement!

Great to see Paul Anka is still active. He asked me to help him with rewrites of his biggest hits and then I got a call from Lee Greenwood, too! Glad to help.

In addition to a special “F-U, Losers,” rewrite of “My Way,” “Diana” has been retooled.

“Ivanka”

“I’m so old and you’re so young
Thinking where to stick my tongue
I don’t care just what they say
‘Cause forever I will pray
You and I will be as free
As the birds up in the trees
Oh, please, stay by me, Ivanka

Because I’m old our days are few
Why’d you marry that slimy Jew?
Oh Ivanka, can’t you see
I love you with all my heart
And I hope we will never part
Oh, please, stay with me, Ivanka”

Particularly proud to help out old friend Lee Greenwood with his classic.

God HELP The USA

“If tomorrow all the lies he told
Didn’t win him the job as prez
He’d be stuck in that stupid tower
And Rachel Maddow’s still a lez

I’d have thunk my lucky stars
For the white trash working class
If their good sense would have seen
That the Con Man is an ass

And I’m proud to be an American
Where we used to sorta be free
Then V. Putin hacked and Comey backed
God Help The USA!”

 

 

I HEAR THE TRUMP TRAIN COMIN…. IT’S ROLLING ROUND THE BEND

 

 

You may have had a parent or teacher use the admonition: “your mouth is ahead of your brain….” which, of course, is advice to think before you speak. Social media has obviously exacerbated this problem… typing before thinking. People lose jobs, relationships… you know the deal. America is a week away from its president being the prototype of this problem. Over and over again, he speaks or tweets with no preparation or thought or insight, just the spontaneous ignorance of a fool. I think it’s even more fair to go back well before Trump was a candidate, when his Twitter feed was barely noticed…. a dark foreshadow of what was to come. October, 2014 for this drivel about “Blackish,” the well-constructed hit comedy on ABC.  

So much wrong in just 24 words.

1. “How is ABC Television allowed to have a show entitled “Blackish”?
The answer, Donald, is that they are “allowed” because we have a free country and there is no one “deciding” what a show is “allowed” to be called. (Plus, you’re supposed to put the question mark INSIDE the quotation marks) After your Hitlerian-style beatdown of Jim Acosta of CNN this week and your singling out of other news outlets and reporters for years, can we look forward to a new Trump agency: The Department of Allowing Stuff Only That Trump Likes… Or Gets?

2. “Can you imagine the furor of the show, “Whiteish”!
(I won’t dwell on the ignorance of the punctuation again) Can a show have “furor?” Of course Trump was really too careless and lazy to say correctly, “can you imagine the furor OVER a show called “Whiteish?” The answer is there would be none, unless it was rattling around in your mind that your imaginary “Whiteish” was a Brietbart-produced weekly celebration of whiteness as an endangered segment of America about to be overrun by the OTHER. This week’s guest host, David Duke. He must think Blackish is JayZ/Beyonce/Al Sharpton celebration of black folks at his expense. How come we don’t celebrate whiteness, huh? Hey Donald, are you still upset over “White Men Can’t Jump?”

3. “Racism at highest level?”
Uh…. no, not at all. Trump clearly had never seen the show. And what is that high level you speak of? As president will you be calling Bob Iger, CEO of Disney, to lodge your complaint? Trump’s entire pathology of Impulsive Ignorance is on display here. This is only about a tv show. Soon he’ll be tweeting and speaking with the power to move markets, start wars, to destroy people and companies who do not bow down to him. Bring this up to someone who voted for Trump and they’ll parrot his response to the indefensible: “he won.”  It won’t be the last time we hear that one.  We’re about to find out as we never have before that elections have not just big consequences, but catastrophic ones.  And that’s not fake news.
