Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, September 10, 2020

Only four new auto plants have been announced since Trump took office, and investment in auto manufacturing was higher under the last three years of Barack Obama's presidency than the first three of Trump's.

Hitler wrote about his Big Lie theory in Mein Kampf: tell a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously".

Goebbels expanded on that theory:
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State."

Is there any wonder that Drumpf has allied himself with the Alt-Right, Neo Nazis, White Nationalists, the Boogaloo Bois, the 3%ers and the rest of the Reichwing sewer dwellers.

There ARE new auto plants. Air Forcer jets capture them in their gun cameras.

When your support comes from people who only listen to propaganda news channels you ca say anything you want because your supporters will never fact check you. Even when they are informed that you are lying your ass off they still deny, deny, deny that you would ever lie to them. Our only hope is for massive numbers of voters to overwhelm their cheating operations and strategies, we must show up at the polls or vote by mail in massive numbers simillar to the Obama victories. We need President Obama to be out publicly campaigning for Biden and President Clinton too. We need to motivate, motivate, motivate our voters to crush Donald Trump like the cockroach he is.

President Donald Trump made wildly inaccurate claims at a rally outside Saginaw on Thursday night, suggesting he has revitalized auto manufacturing in the state when it actually lost jobs even before coronavirus hit in March.... As of February, there were about 2,400 fewer auto and auto parts jobs in Michigan than when Trump took office in January 2017.

Almost every statement coming out of Trump's mouth is a lie.

Yet, his people continue to lap them up like the tastiest mead coming directly from heaven. We are so screwed.

No, really, lots more plants have been built. In Detroit. But no one goes there anymore, so you can't see them...
-Trump, master of logic

Imaginary auto plants employing imaginary employees to manufacture imaginary cars. Everything Trump claims is imaginary. How about how he imagines that his administration has done such a great job dealing with the pandemic? 4% of the world population but 25% of the Covid deaths. Most deaths of any nation in the world by far. And that clown claims he's doing a great job. Worse, some of y'all believe him!

A Neurology of the Conservative-Liberal Dimension of Political Ideology
...What emerges from this highly variable literature is evidence for a normal right-sided "conservative-complex" involving structures sensitive to negativity bias, threat, disgust, and avoidance. This conservative-complex may be damaged with brain disease, sometimes leading to a pathological "liberal shift" or a reduced tendency to conservatism in political ideology. Although not deterministic, these findings recommend further research on politics and the brain.

A link between brain damage and religious fundamentalism has now been established by scientists (Actual Study here.
A study published in the journal Neuropsychologia has shown that religious fundamentalism is, in part, the result of a functional impairment in a brain region known as the prefrontal cortex. The findings suggest that damage to particular areas of the prefrontal cortex indirectly promotes religious fundamentalism by diminishing cognitive flexibility and openness"a psychology term that describes a personality trait which involves dimensions like curiosity, creativity, and open-mindedness.

With more and more studies like these, one has to wonder if "conservatives" and "religious fundamentalists" should be allowed to vote at all - they are cognitively impaired and being prayed upon by the likes of the Kochs, Trump, etc. Maybe that is a good approach to go after conservatives - abuse of the mentally infirm.
