Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s Orwellian nightmare goes off the rails

“President” Donald Trump recently referred to Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, as “Tim Apple.” Not a big deal, people make mistakes on names and places, and they laugh and correct themselves. Not “Orwell Lie Until I Turn Redenbacher” Trump. Trump cannot admit a mistake, rather, he wants his Cult 45 to ignore reality and yell “Fake News” and deny reality. Over the weekend, after making the mistake, Trump insisted that he’d called him “Tim Cook of Apple” and that no one heard him correctly. Chris Hayes on MSNBC on Monday night played the statement in slow time and nope, no “Cook” in between Tim and Apple. Again, no big deal, but no reason to lie.


When you are Corruptus Maximus with your entire orbit of stench and swamp surrounding you, you continue to lie. George Orwell warned us in his novel, 1984, alerting us: “The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command.” Trump has told his followers similar things, but we are living in it every day, twenty-four hours a day.




It is not just Trump. Erik “Dark” Prince was interviewed recently, as reported by Palmer Report. When pushed on his not disclosing a meeting at Trump Tower about Iran policy with Donald Trump, Jr. and a UAE lobbyist, Price had the audacity to assert that he had told Congress about it, and that the transcript was incorrect. Bet you a mercenary force engagement he did not answer that question truthfully.




On Monday, Trump finally changed his story, tweeting: “At a recent round table meeting of business executives, & long after formally introducing Tim Cook of Apple, I quickly referred to Tim + Apple as Tim/Apple as an easy way to save time & words. The Fake News was disparagingly all over this, & it became yet another bad Trump story!”



Donald Trump lies about his lies. This is a man who talked drivel and proverbial BS for more than two hours last weekend, and yet he claims to have saved time by condensing four words (“Tim Cook of Apple”) to two words (“Tim Apple”) to save time and words. Believe what you see and hear – the Corruptus Maximus is exactly what he appears to be.

Palmer Report: Roger Stone just blew it with the judge

Spread the Knowledge

  •  
  •  
  •  

Last week, Judge Amy Berman Jackson gave Roger Stone and his lawyers until today to explain why they never bothered to tell her that Stone was releasing a book about the criminal case against him, which appears to be in violation of his gag order. Stone and his legal team filed a response just now, and suffice it to say that they blew it.


The judge laid out several specific questions about the timing and circumstances of how the book launch came together. In response, Roger Stone’s lawyers are insisting that this is merely a newly released edition of an existing book, and that Stone wasn’t aware it had been re-released until he found out from a friend that it was newly on sale in bookstores. Okay, unlikely, but theoretically plausible. Then they blew it.




Here’s what Roger Stone’s lawyers said in conclusion in the lengthy new filing: “There was/is no intention to hide anything. The new introduction, post February 21, 2019, presented a question we tried, obviously clumsily, to address. Having been scolded, we seek only to defend Mr. Stone and move ahead without further ado.” Wait, what?




When a federal judge is trying to make a decision about whether to throw you in jail through the end of your trial, and she’s already reluctantly given you a few earlier chances, which you also blew, the last thing you want to do is to talk condescendingly to the judge, and belittle her concerns. This court filing sounds like a punk kid trying to look cool after he got in trouble with the teacher. It won’t fly.



Roger Stone may be newly emboldened by the fact that his longtime friend and partner in crime Paul Manafort recently received an overly lenient four year sentence from crackpot Judge TS Ellis. But there is no indication that Judge Jackson sees Stone in any sort of sympathetic light. Stone is playing with fire here, and he just blew it. Now we’ll find out on Thursday how badly he’s blown it, when the judge issues her ruling.

Palmer Report: The real reason putting the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee is such a brilliant move

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  

The Democratic Party announced today that its 2020 Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. This is a brilliant move, but it has nothing to do with the fact that Hillary Clinton lost Wisconsin in 2016, and everything to do with the manner in which the media portrayed the 2016 election, and how the media will portray the 2020 election.

If you’ve been paying attention to the facts, as opposed to the ongoing media hype, you know that Hillary Clinton had every reason not to campaign in Wisconsin. The internal and external polls told her that it was a safe state, so it would have been stupid to waste time campaigning in a state she knew she would win. Instead she spent that time in the states that she knew could have gone either way.

And if you’ve truly been paying attention, you know that Donald Trump only “won” Wisconsin and a few other key swing states because he conspired with the Russians to alter the outcome. The polls ended up being accurate in every state, except for those few swing states. Polls don’t naturally work that way; it’s obvious that the results in those specific states were altered. How was it done? Just ask the Senate Intelligence Committee, which quietly released a bipartisan report a year ago which confirmed that Russian hackers got into swing state voter registration databases just before the election, and were in position to delete voter registrations.

So yeah, Hillary Clinton didn’t make a mistake by skipping over Wisconsin, unless she was supposed to have had a crystal ball to tell her what the Russian hackers were specifically up to. But that doesn’t matter anymore. Even as the media has spent the past two years very gradually starting to admit that Donald Trump didn’t legitimately win the election, the media is still as obsessed as ever with pushing the narrative that Hillary blew it. This is because the media, which pushed endless phony scandals about Hillary in a blatant grab for ratings, knows it’s partly to blame for Trump being in power, and will never admit it.


Because the media will forever bang the phony drum about Hillary having blown it by not visiting Wisconsin, the general public now believes it. Even a lot of Democratic voters have fallen for this nonsense. And there’s nothing that can be done to correct this false narrative, because the media will always double down on it. This leaves only one option: play into it.




Because the Democrats have decided to hold their 2020 convention in Wisconsin, the media can’t push the narrative that the Democrats are “still ignoring white working class voters.” Instead the media will smugly say something along the lines of “Wow, the Democrats are finally learning from the imaginary mistakes they made in 2016.” The media will get to falsely pat itself on the back, but so what? The Democrats will shut down one of the talking points that the media was planning to use against them in 2020.




Will holding the 2020 Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee cause more people in Wisconsin to vote for the Democrat in the 2020 election? Of course not. That’s not how anything works. There is no historical evidence that holding your convention in a state has resulted in better than expected election results in that state. But because the media will loudly praise the Democrats for holding their convention in Wisconsin, it’ll cause more people to vote Democrat nationwide. That’s how it works. The people in the middle vote for whichever candidate and party the media is beating up the least.



You can’t earnestly beg the media to stop pushing its ratings-friendly phony narratives. You can only shake up the chess board so the media has no choice but to abandon those phony narratives. The Republicans have long been particularly good at this, even if they’re not good at anything else. It’s refreshing to see the Democrats finally understanding how to play the media at its own game.

Palmer Report: Donald Trump’s Space Force just took a Space Dump

Spread the Knowledge
  •  
  •  
  •  
  •  


So many officials resigned from Donald Trump’s failing regime last week, it’s taken a minute to sort out the meaning and impact of each of the rats leaving the sinking ship. One of those departures was Air Force Secretary Heather Wilson, which went largely unnoticed, perhaps because the average American doesn’t even know there’s a Secretary of the Air Force. But this move spells bad news for one of Trump’s biggest pipe dreams.




What is Space Force? No one knows. That’s partly because Donald Trump can’t come close to articulating what Space Force is supposed to do, and partly because – like his imaginary border wall and so many other of his nonsensical ideas – there is no tangible evidence that the Space Force concept is being advanced in any way. We do know, however, that Heather Wilson was in charge of the imaginary Space Force.




Donald Trump just released an imaginary budget that includes major funding for Space Force, which helps put Secretary Wilson’s abrupt resignation in context. Trump desperately wants to move ahead with Space Force – or more accurately he wants to allocate billions of dollars for the imaginary project and then shove the money into his friends’ pockets – and she apparently wanted nothing to do with the scam.



So yeah, maybe now Donald Trump can find someone more corrupt to be his new Secretary of the Air Force, or his new acting Secretary of the Air Force, since he no longer believes in bothering to get Senate confirmation for these positions. But the reality is that the person in charge of the imaginary Space Force just resigned. That’s never a good sign when it comes to trying to dupe the public into believing that an imaginary project needs to be well funded.
