MSM lie about how many attended Trump’s inauguration

Don’t believe the MSM’s lies about the sparse number of people who attended Trump’s presidential inauguration yesterday.

THE LIE

The pic below is a screenshot I took from a Daily Mail article. The pic is CNN’s; the caption is Daily Mail‘s.

Rick Owens’ insane menswear at Paris Fashion Week

Richard Saturnino Owens, known as Rick Owens, 55, is an American fashion designer from Porterville, California.

He is married to a demonic-looking woman named Michele Lamy who is his “muse”.

The following are some of Owens’ menswear seen at the 2017 Paris Fashion Week:

Reporting for Fashion Times on Jan. 22, 2017, Jayne Mountford writes that Rick Owens has been called “the godfather of brutal chic” and that “In his show notes Rick Owens asks some challenging questions and describes eloquently what his collection is all about”:

“Change can be ominous but isn’t evolution inevitable? Do we really expect to live forever? or might we gracefully go the way of the dinosaur?

Balancing control and collapse is what I’ve built my aesthetic on —- discipline versus indulgence, immortality versus its defeat, architecture versus wilderness.

Fashion’s evolution has expressed ideals of beauty through exaggeration like stretch jeans, stilettos, bustles and panniers. I’ve used volume at the pelvis to construct the effect I think panniers were intended for.

Shapes in thick cotton moleskins and wool suiting are tight and controlled at the top, gradually expanding at the hips to drag and melt tree trunk-like into the ground, shearlings are the simplest of shapes, or twisted and draped into cascading blobs. Bombers are in pirarucu, a Brazilian eco-friendly fish hide with prehistoric-looking scales. Parkas are cut in falling apart mohair or black suburban nylon, twisted and stretched to the floor. Looks are anchored by Adidas pro model shell toes.”

For the 2015 Paris Fashion Week, Owens debuted a line of men’s wear that are dresses with peep-hole cut-outs exposing the genitalia. See my post, “New menswear is a dress with a cutout exposing your penis“.

Trump is right: NATO allies are not paying their fair share

Throughout his campaign, President Donald John Trump had said that one of the things he’ll do as POTUS is to make fairer and better “deals” with supposed U.S. allies — in Asia (Japan, South Korea), and in Europe (referring to our allies in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO).

In the case of America’s NATO allies, they are supposed to pay at least 2% of their GDPs as their “fair share” in defense costs — except they’re not.

Rick Clough reports for Bloomberg, Jan. 18, 2017, that “Donald Trump is right to say America’s NATO allies aren’t paying their fair share,” which you can see in the map below.

nato-defense-spending

Whereas the U.S. pays more than our “fair share” as a member of NATO (3.6% of our GDP), the vast majority of NATO allies pay less than their fair share:

  1. Albania: 1.2%
  2. Belgium: 0.9%
  3. Bulgaria: 1.3%
  4. Canada: 1%
  5. Croatia: 1.2%
  6. Czech Republic: 1%
  7. Denmark: 1.2%
  8. France: 1.8%
  9. Germany: 1.2%
  10. Hungary: 1%
  11. Italy: 1.1%
  12. Latvia: 1.5%
  13. Lithuania: 1.5%
  14. Luxembourg: 0.4%
  15. Netherlands: 1.2%
  16. Norway: 1.5%
  17. Portugal: 1.4%
  18. Romania: 1.5%
  19. Slovakia: 1.2%
  20. Slovenia: 0.9%
  21. Spain: 0.9%
  22. Turkey: 1.6%

In all, only four NATO countries pay their fair share:

  • Estonia: 2.2%
  • Greece: 2.4%
  • Poland: 2%
  • United Kingdom: 2.2%

Not only are our “allies” not shouldering their fair share, instead leaving it up to the United States, as usual, to fork up more than our share, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization itself should be mothballed, being a relic of the Cold War against a communist Soviet Union that no longer exists.

Bloomberg‘s Clough observes:

“He [Trump] reaffirmed his skepticism about the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and his readiness to make deals with Russia, in European media interviews published last weekend. Trump isn’t famous for his policy consistency, but those positions have held fairly steady — leaving European leaders wondering whether they can still rely on the American security umbrella.

‘Let’s not fool ourselves,’ German Chancellor Angela Merkel said last week. ‘There is no infinite guarantee.’

So Merkel’s Germany, and many other European nations, are boosting military budgets.

[…] the prospect of a European arms-shopping spree is a win-win for suppliers. Investors have noticed: From Raytheon Co. to Lockheed Martin Corp. to Thales SA, defense contractors have hit all-time highs since Trump’s election. […]

Germany, which spent 1.2 percent of GDP on defense last year according to NATO figures, has announced the biggest increase in 25 years — an extra 10.6 billion euros ($11.2 billion) through 2020. France has approved increased outlays for 2017. Altogether, 19 of NATO’s 28 members have boosted military budgets in the past 18 months, according to a Bank of America Merrill Lynch report.

[…] The new administration isn’t all upside for defense contractors. Trump has already called out companies like Lockheed and Boeing Co. for their high prices.”

And both Lockheed and Boeing, even before Trump was inaugurated as President, already made concessions:

But neo-conservative Bill Kristol whines that he finds Trump putting America’s interests first to be “vulgar, embarrassing and depressing”.

Neo-con Bill Kristol finds Trump’s ‘America First’ vulgar and embarrassing

I’ve said before that neo-conservatives are warmongers.

Bill Kristol is a prominent neo-conservative. From Wikipedia:

“William ‘Bill’ Kristol (born December 23, 1952) is an American conservative political analyst and commentator. He is the founder and editor at large of the political magazine The Weekly Standard and a political commentator on several networks.”

kristol-betrayalBill Kristol has been hostile to Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy from the start. See:

In a tweet today, reacting to President Trump’s inaugural speech, Kristol‘s phony conservatism is unmasked. He says he is embarrassed by, and finds it “profoundly depressing and vulgar to hear an American President proclaim ‘America First’.”

Here’s his tweet:

bill-kristol-tweet

So Bill Kristol, the neo-conservative, is a warmonger and a “globalist” who thinks an American president who puts America’s interests first is vulgar, depressing, and embarrassing.

The questions that then must be asked are:

If not America, which nation should come first for an American president?

In whose interests does Kristol warmonger?

From Wikipedia:

“Kristol is associated with a number of prominent conservative think tanks . . . [and] serves on the board of the Emergency Committee for Israel . . . .

Kristol was born on December 23, 1952 in New York City, into a Jewish family. His father, Irving Kristol was an editor and publisher who served as the managing editor of Commentary magazine . . . and has been described as the “godfather of neoconservatism”

If you’re an American who loves America, why would you listen to this man or read his magazine The Weekly Standard?

Hillary caught Bill leching after Ivanka Trump at Inauguration

Yet another bullet that America dodged on November 8, 2016: 4 years of lecherous Bill Clinton back in the White House.

Watch the dirty old man salivating, even smacking his lips, at Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, at today’s Inauguration . . . .

Did you catch Bill’s look of abject fear when he realized Hillary caught him ogling? LOL

Gateway Pundit says Bill was ogling at Firs Lady Melania Trump, but to me he appears to be mouthing “Ivanka”. What do you think?

President Trump’s Inaugural Speech: ‘I will never let you down’

At a little past 12 noon today, Donald J. Trump was inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States of America.

Inauguration Of Donald Trump As 45th President Of The United States

As headlines on Drudge Report correctly observe:

  • Trump eviscerates Obama’s Washington
  • Trump’s speech focuses on “we” and leaves himself out almost entirely — unlike Obama’s “I, me, my” speeches.

Here is the text of President Trump’s inaugural speech (CNBC), followed by the video:

“Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans and people of the world, thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Every four years we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power.

And we are grateful to President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition.

They have been magnificent.

Thank you.

Today’s ceremony, however, has a very special meaning because today we are not merely transferring power from one administration to another or from one party to another, but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C., and giving it back to you, the people.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have bore the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs. And while they celebrated in our nation’s capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes starting right here and right now, because this moment is your moment.

It belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America.

This is your day.

This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th, 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again.

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer. Everyone is listening to you now. You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement, the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction that a nation exists to serve its citizens. Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families and good jobs for themselves.

These are just and reasonable demands of righteous people and a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists.

Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities, rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation.

An education system flush with cash but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of all knowledge.

And the crime and the gangs and the drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential. This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation, and their pain is our pain.

Their dreams are our dreams, and their success will be our success. We share one heart, one home and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry, subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military.

We’ve defended other nations’ borders while refusing to defend our own. And we’ve spent trillions and trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength and confidence of our country has dissipated over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores with not even a thought about the millions and millions of American workers that were left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed all across the world. But that is the past, and now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital and in every hall of power. From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first, America first. Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs will be made to benefit American workers and American families. We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our product, stealing our companies and destroying our jobs.

Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength. I will fight for you with every breath in my body, and I will never ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs.

We will bring back our borders.

We will bring back our wealth, and we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads and highways and bridges and airports and tunnels and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work, rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world, but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example.

We will shine for everyone to follow.

We will re-enforce old alliances and form new ones and unite the civilized world against radical Islamic terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity. We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity. When America is united, America is totally unstoppable. There should be no fear. We are protected and we will always be protected. We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement. And most importantly, we will be protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger. In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving. We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action, constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over. Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not allow anyone to tell you that it cannot be done. No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America. We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir ourselves, lift our sights and heal our divisions. It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots.

We all enjoy the same glorious freedoms and we all salute the same great American flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty creator.

So to all Americans in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together we will make America strong again, we will make America wealthy again, we will make America proud again, we will make America safe again.

And, yes, together we will make America great again.

Thank you.

God bless you.

And God bless America.”

May God bless Donald Trump, and may America be worthy of this second chance God mercifully gave us.
