2019 was #2 a Year of much deceit in the U.S.A.

Since a few years some world leaders seem to have their hands on one stomach. They are really of the same kind, so their unity or similar speech should not surprise us.
Only problem is that so many people are carried away by their eloquence or ability to overwhelm others with their voice and attitude. Probably they had a lot of practice in their childhood were they developed their skills to keep others under control and to implement their will.
Nobody wants to be inferior to such personalities that have succeeded in becoming president of a great nation and who are convinced that they are the best world leader.

White House meeting on Wednesday 13 November 2019, between Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and American President Donald Trump to resolve an issue that has badly strained relations between the two NATO allies.

The gentlemen Putin, Trump, Erdogan, Farage, Johnson are one-of-a-kind who know to twist the tongue like its suits them as a second nature. They also may call each other “very good friends”. One or the other may be angered for something the other did, like Putin being cross with America not taking sites of Assad, and Erdogan being angered at the U.S. for supporting the Kurdish forces it views as a threat and for refusing to extradite a Muslim cleric Turkey accuses of fomenting a 2016 coup attempt against Erdogan. But that are just forgivable differences. It was not like that with a lot of people who were given a particular job in ministerial departments but afterwards showed their disagreement with their boss and 45th president of the United States. In any case that president does as if he is of his proud record-setting turnover rate in his Administration.

On September 18, 2019, a reporter asked Trump about the lack of stability in his administration, particularly in DHS. He replied:

“We have acting people. The reason they are acting is because I’m seeing how I like them, and I’m liking a lot of them very, very much. There are people who have done a bad job, and I let them go. If you call that turmoil, I don’t call that turmoil. I say that is being smart. That’s what we do.” {Remarks by President Trump During Visit to the Border Wall | San Diego, CA}

The president also said he likes the word “acting,”

because it gives me great flexibility. {Remarks by President Trump During Visit to the Border Wall | San Diego, CA}

and that flexibility he used a lot. For him his acting and reacting is always in the interest of his own country. Concerning his intrusion and interference with foreign policy and foreign affairs he proudly announces every time.

We are doing it the right way. We’re doing it the smart way. It’s very easy to go in. We could go in in one instant. Just one phone call, we could go in. And we’ll see — and that might happen. That might happen. But we will — we will see what we will see.

In better times. Pres. George W. Bush naming John R. Bolton (left) to the post of U.S. ambassador to the UN, Washington, D.C., August 1, 2005; Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is at right.

For the people he fired, he often blame others not being able to work with them. One of his big excuses is to say others advised him to use those people, but he from set one was critical about them. Take John Bolton for example

I was critical of John Bolton for getting us involved with a lot of other people in the Middle East. We’ve spent seven and a half trillion dollars in the Middle East. And you ought to ask a lot of people about that.

lot of people disagreed with his ideas. And a lot of people were very critical that I brought him on in the first place, because of the fact that he was so in favor of going into the Middle East. And he got stuck in quicksand. We became policemen for the Middle East and it’s ridiculous. {Remarks by President Trump During Visit to the Border Wall | San Diego, CA}

Afterwards Trump is very handy to say

I’ve always felt that. I always felt it. From day one …

and in giving himself an excuse he repeats himself a hundred times.

Were a.o. to leave: Reince Priebus and Michael Flynn whose tenures may be considered by the shortest in the office’s history, with Michael Dubke and Anthony Scaramucci. Steve Bannon, who was asked for his immediate resignation on August 18 and went back to Breitbart News. John Bolton resigned amid disagreements within the Trump administration on Korea, Iran and Afghanistan policy. that working with First Lady Melania Trump was also not so easy got Mira Ricardel to know after reported disputes with her and with Defense Secretary James Mattis. Witnesses in the impeachment inquiry should have been warned by previous remarks of the dictator. Presidential advisor Fiona Hill with Tim Morrison could close their books, like Madeleine Westerhout who shared details of Trump family matters and Oval Office operations with reporters.

In a period full of lies and intrigues, on February 27, 2018, Hicks told a Congressional committee that Hope Hicks had told “white lies” on Trump’s behalf. The next day Hicks announced her intention to resign, effective March 29.
Those who attempted to disuade the president to do something he had in mind could follow the investment banker Gary Cohn who was against imposing import tariffs on steel and aluminum.

Trump wants the American people to believe his interest goes to the American economy and the Americans their jobs and well being. Therefore America needs armed interventions outside of America. Matters about climate change are deconstructive for economy and therefore global warming and the need to do something against it, is considered a joke, a lie from Europe and from scientists who know nothing about it. Strangely enough Trump has had a wall of grass bales built on the edge of his Irish golf course. This seemed to have happened to stop seawater crawling higher and higher. In the building application, Trumps golf company referred explicitly to scientific studies on global warming and rising sea levels.

According to the White House the American economy has come roaring back to life under President Trump. The stock market has hit record high after record high, helping more Americans build wealth and secure their futures, though when we see pictures from many places in different cities and in rural areas, we do get another picture. The government is proud to announce that through needed tax cuts and reform, the Administration will bring jobs back to their country. We hear of expanding apprenticeship programs, reforming job training programs, and bringing businesses and educators together to ensure high-quality classroom instruction and on-the-job training, but in real life there is not so much of it to see.

After many debacles at the end of 2019 the White House could proudly announced

As a result of President Donald J. Trump’s leadership, the United States reached a historic and enforceable phase one agreement with China that achieves progress on a number of critical fronts.

This historic agreement is a tremendous victory for the American economy – especially American farmers, manufacturers, and innovators.

The president saying

“We have agreed to a very large Phase One Deal with China. They have agreed to many structural changes and massive purchases of Agricultural Product, Energy, and Manufactured Goods, plus much more.”

All the time in 2019 we heard a lot of superlatives and had to believe everything in the United States was going super and Mr. Trump did everything to save the world. Though more than once, we in Europe kept our heart still, fearing worse things or even war could come unto us in the near future, by the lunatic actions of this incredible president, who still has so many sympathisers, because he can twist them around his finger easily.

Already in 2016 Mr. Trump was already buffetted by accusations of misconduct, but several adding cases of misconduct, fraud, threats and bribery did not seem to dare or harm him. Instead he took a more victorious body attitude.

It took until Monday the 16th of December 2019 for the House judiciary committee to release its report explaining that the charges it has levelled against President Donald Trump were serious enoug to start impeachement procedures. Justifications for deciding to charge Trump with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress were laid out by Representative Jerry Nadler, chairman of the committee.
The report notes that unlike past presidents,

“Trump declined to attend any hearings, question any witnesses, or recommend that the Committee call additional witnesses in his defense.”

The verdict prompted Donald Trump to once again label the impeachment process a “sham” and a “hoax.” He retweeted dozens of posts from various accounts that sought to criticize democratic efforts to impeach him. He tweeted as @real Donald Trump

The Impeachment Hoax is the greatest con job in the history of American politics! The Fake News Media, and their partner, the Democrat Party, are working overtime to make life for the United Republican Party, and all it stands for, as difficult as possible!

The decision followed nearly three months of public and private hearings into whether Trump pressured Ukraine president Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden for Trump’s political gain. Trump is accused of withholding $391 million in military aide unless Zelensky agreed to help him. Trump also allegedly sought Zelensky’s help investigating the unfounded claim that Ukraine — not Russia — meddled in the 2016 U.S. election.

“One investigation was designed to help him gain an advantage in the 2020 election. The other was intended to help President Trump conceal the truth about the 2016 election,”

the report says.

In the previous decades other presidents had to leave office for less bad cases than can be counted on the curriculum vitae of this 45th president, who manages to make a mockery of him and his country.

Behind doors it is a wellknown fact that this “man of Trump” has exercised more than once the powers of his office to obtain an improper personal benefit while injuring and ignoring the national interest.

The report also said:

“… When the President weakens a partner who advances American security interests, the President weakens America.

“As to election integrity, American democracy above all rests upon elections that are free and fair. When the President demands that a foreign government announce investigations targeting his domestic political rival, he corrupts our elections. To the Founders, this kind of corruption was especially pernicious, and plainly merited impeachment.”

U.S. Sen. Joseph McCarthy testifies before a Senate subcomittee on elections and rules in an effort to link fellow U.S. Sen. William Benton to communism.

With all the lies this 45th president sent into the air, American democracy has only be in a similar danger in the Joseph Raymond McCarthy years when it was also a Republican who brought terror and false information over the American citizens. As Trump, that Republican U.S. Senator from the state of Wisconsin in the beginning of 1950 could become the most visible public face of a period in the United States in which Cold War tensions fueled fears of widespread Communist subversion. In those horrible years for actors and teachers he managed with some others and the American Leage of Actors to spread lies about activities of several Jews and people who gained some public attention. The House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC) was the devil in the cubard at that time. Not just actors, but screenwriters, directors, musicians, and other American entertainment professionals were barred from work by the studios,finding them on the Hollywood blacklist.

It took also a long time before his smear tactics led him to be censured by the U.S. Senate.

Instead of keeping the 50 states of the United States of America, the current president seems to have created more distrust and division in the nation than ever before. Certainly him being a master in manipulating people and spreading lies about people of other faith and from other countries. His smearing and mocking not only made himself an object of derision, but made him to be the first professional scoffer who got the most important seat in North America.
