Trump’s Gilded Throne of Lies – The Russian War on Truth

First posted 1/02/2017

In this post I offer a screenshot timeline of the disinformation campaign
against Hillary Clinton from June through November of 2016.

This post was first published as A Gilded Throne of Lies: The Right-
Wing War on Truth.

I’ve changed the title to illustrate what Robert Mueller’s Investigation confirms: that members of the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian Government to subvert Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Weaponized disinformation is the use of media to subvert reality to such a degree that the people are no longer able to trust their own perceptions.

Another term for this is ‘gaslighting’.

Gaslighting does what any systematic abuse does to any psyche. It makes you give up your own truth. Self-doubt takes over because you no longer rely on your reality. You lose touch with who you once were or thought you were — because everything is hazy now. Gaslighting: It’s Really A Thing

Trust is essential to the success of free and open democracies.

If you want to bring down American Democracy, the best way is erode the people’s faith in reason and the Rule of Law 

Even as investigators attempt to assess the damage of this attack, Trump’s team dismisses the American legal system as an international laughing-stock.

The President of the United States thinks his Nation’s legal system
is his enemy.

How did this happen?

Let’s review a timeline of the Russian assault on reality that gave
the Presidency to Donald Trump.

On Being Unable to Reach the Fifth Stage of Grief

Excellent thoughts and reaction to the election from an American ex-patriot

Buffalo Schnitzel

I felt this election in my bones.

I’ll be honest–this is the first political race that I’ve ever lost sleep over, that affected my mood, that made me feel uncontrollably combative towards the ‘other side’ even when I tried very, very hard not to. I know I’m far from alone in this.

I desperately wanted to be an activist–if we were in the States, I can guarantee I would have donned my very own coordinated pantsuit and gone door-to-door, making quite the impassioned case.

Even though I once promised myself to avoid all political talk on Facebook and stick to family pictures or light updates on the state of my being, for the past month or so I just couldn’t help myself. I poured a glass of wine as soon as I got home from work and thought, no, no, stay away, stay awayno one’s mind has…

My Letter To Media Outlets Regarding Their 2016 Election Season Coverage

Dear Media, DT is a liar, a con artist, a bully, dirty tricks expert etc, but you enabled him by letting him get away with constructing his huuuuge pile of manure. This is who he is both before and post the election process. He may have conned enough folks to get elected but he didn’t succeed with most of us.

Gronda Morin

The following is a template of what I will be writing to various media outlets. I do fault the media for their complicity in helping the republican’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump to become our next U.S. president.

Dear Media Representatives,

Image result for cartoons about media coverage of electionYou are about to receive many letters similar to mine. While I do not hold your paper and /or the media, in general, solely responsible for Donald Trump’s victory, you have been a major  factor/ player in helping him win.

The rest of the story…(DT is Donald Trump and HRC is Hillary Clinton)

Previously, I have written to media outlets (I am certain that I was not alone) indicating that if DT won, the media would be held culpable in helping  DT with his victory. I was asking the press to end their coverage of treating both candidate with a sense of false equivalency because there was no comparison between the two.

The media writers and pundits were…
