Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 16, 2019

President Donald Trump is dishonest about a whole lot of things. But he is rarely as comprehensively dishonest as he has been about his dealings with Ukraine and the impeachment inquiry they have triggered.

The President is dissembling about so many different topics at once that it can be difficult to keep track of what is true and what isn't. To help you fight Trump-induced dizziness, here are brief fact checks of 45 separate false claims Trump has made on the subject of Ukraine or impeachment.

The Democrat playbook to victory is to use the presstitutes to argue the case that hating Trump is cool ...

I get it ...

There is so much that is odd regarding Pres Trump and Ukraine. On some occasions, it appears as if he is doing Pres Putin's bidding.

Reading through the October 30, 2019 testimony of Christopher Anderson, I see the following:


P.14
0n November 25th, 20t8, Russia escalated the conflict further when its forces openly attacked and seized Ukrainian military vessels heading to a Ukrainian port in the Sea of Azov. While my colleagues at the State Department quickly prepared a statement condemning Russia for its escalation, senior officials in the White House blocked it from being issued.

P.35,36
There was a CNN stony which said that -- and I don't remember seeing the news report, but that referenced this freedom-of-navigation operation into the Black Sea and made it seem as if this were a direct response to Russia and that it was a challenge to Russia.

Now, I don't know -- the news report seemed to be, in my understanding, exaggerating the situation, because all the Navy had done was file a standard notification under the Montreux Convention that they were planning to transit into the Black Sea.

Q And how do you know that the President was not pleased with this report?

A Ambassador Bolton relayed that he was called at home by the President, who complained about this news report.


So the State Department prepared a statement condemning Russia for escalating the aggression against Ukraine, and Pres Trump's White House prevented the State Department from issuing the statement in support of an ally. Instead opting not to criticize Russia, an enemy.

Also Pres Trump seemed angered by our Navy's freedom-of-navigation show of strength against Russia.

Why does Pres Trump always seem so anxious to placate, even assist, Pres Putin?

Because Apparently, Actual Facts Induce Dizziness in Deplorables.

Apparently.

@#3 ... Articles like this only really intended for an audience who've already made up their mind about Trump ...

Pres Trump has lied so frequently and to such an extreme extent, that articles about his lies are readily dismissed for trite reason(s).

What I think is quite important about the continual noting of Pres Trump's continuous extreme lying, is that Pres Trump has stated that the only person everyone needs to listen to in order to hear the truth.

Now, if most people, including the supporters of Pres Trump, so readily admit he lies continually ... what does that say about Pres Trump's declaration that he is the only person you need to listen to in order to hear the truth?

I'm not sure what your point is here.

Are you saying that it is OK that a serial liar in the Oval Office is good for the Country?

#10, what I'm saying is reacting to a serial liar in the Oval Office in an OCD manner is not effective. It's like going beyond saying the emperor has no clothes, and repeating how every single one of his body parts is naked, as if that's going to convince anyone who doesn't already see it or doesn't care. It's annoying AF who those already agree about him but don't share the OCD obsession.

Not seem, he does - Putin is a good employer, who has financed his "advertising" campaign in 2016, to much bigger success than they both expected.

Shady, corrupt Russians and Saudis have been buying Trump's (and Kushner's) condos and real-estate (mostly in New York, New Jersey and Florida) since at least the 90's whenever real estate industry and/or he, in particular, fell on hard times - because "The King of Debt" has always been leveraged to the hilt, and most banks stopped working with him and giving him loans.

Don Jr boasted about not needing banks because they had "all the Russian money" they needed. All those Trump's money-losing golf courses are money-laundering schemes that allow Trump write off losses on his tax returns, while "washing" them for their rightful owners who will "buy" them later.

Vladimir in the Kremlin, Boris at 10 Downing Street, Don in Oval Office at 1600 Pensilvania Ave. What's not to smile about?

Hard to whittle it down to only the top 45 here. There are so many ways he is disappointing the office.

45 LIES, 10 LIES, 101 LIES, 10000 LIES, 11001 LIES.

They should be documented and the information sent to the voters.

That is what is being done here.

Picking only the top 45 is being overly generous to Trump.

In fact, this article is pandering to him and his base by using that number which they are so proud of.
