Above and beyond the good sense for 'social distancing' against coronavirus, multiple artists and bands wish their music to be distanced from being Trumped:


Linkin Park take action after Donald Trump retweet
wrote:
Linkin Park have issued a cease and desist notice after Donald Trump retweeted a video featuring one of their songs...

... The band Tweeted: "Linkin Park did not and does not endorse Trump, nor authorize his organization to use any of our music."

Adele, REM and Pharrell Williams have previously taken issue with Mr Trump using their music...




Stay clear! Stay clean!!

Is v2.0 going to make his dictatorship run?

Trump consults Bush torture lawyer on how to skirt law and rule by decree.

The Trump administration has been consulting the former government lawyer who wrote the legal justification for waterboarding on how the president might try to rule by decree.

John Yoo told the Guardian he has been talking to White House officials about his view that a recent supreme court ruling on immigration would allow Trump to issue executive orders on whether to apply existing federal laws.

“If the court really believes what it just did, then it just handed President Trump a great deal of power, too,” Yoo, a professor at Berkeley Law, said.

“The supreme court has said President Obama could not enforce immigration laws for about 2 million cases. And why can’t the Trump administration do something similar with immigration – create its own ... program, but it could do it in areas beyond that, like healthcare, tax policy, criminal justice, inner city policy. I talked to them a fair amount about cities, because of the disorder.”
But he sure back flips when thing are going in the wrong direction.

Troubled Trump to relaunch coronavirus briefings, backs mask wearing.

Trump promised Monday to resume televised coronavirus briefings and finally spoke out in favor of mask-wearing -- a marked change of tune as polls show him headed for election disaster.

With only just over 100 days until the election against Democrat Joe Biden, Trump is scrambling to respond to public anger over his troubled months-long handling of the pandemic.

Since the virus first hit the United States, Trump has insisted that it will just "disappear."

But that sunny claim is now badly strained even among loyal supporters, as they watch COVID-19 cases surge through populous Republican-led states like Florida and Texas.
Or is he just using this as an excuse to pitch more fake election B.S. like before?

Is the U.S. ready for a "Dictator in Chief"?

Trump's team is increasingly adopting the narratives of autocracy.

Strongman-dominated political systems usually share common traits.
Rooted in a cult of personality, they reinvent reality, define patriotism to serve political ends, and drum up fear about outsiders. They erode democracy, often by elevating one strain of religion, manipulating history, empowering security forces to operate beyond traditional law enforcement frameworks, and corrupting checks on power.
America's robust legal, political and civilian military structure have constrained many of President Donald Trump's actions. But his team is increasingly adopting the narratives of autocracy: The President is railing against left-wing "fascists" and warning in racially charged tones of mob violence in US suburbs -- the areas where the 2020 election will be won and lost, and which he claims a Joe Biden presidency would "abolish."
Is the U.S. prepared to bow down to Vladimir Donny Trump-Hitler?

Maybe him and Donny could do a 2 for the price of 1 deal with some sanitarium somewhere. ;-)

I originally thought Wiggo's post was in the wrong thread and that he was stating Key West needed help with more firearms.

What I did find funny was that his 2% support actually came out of v2.0's portion. LOL

Since and stocks and pillory are considered to be a cruel and unusual punishment locking him up is appropriate.
Lock him up.

Get use to more of v2.0's gestapo coming to a city near you.

Portland protests: US federal agents 'will not retreat', Chad Wolf says.

And v2.0 threatens that Chicago is next as he accelerates the actual violence happening in Portland with his secret police on the case.

Isn't this also breaking the U.S. constitution?

Are you people stupid enough to have a dictator enact/inflict "1984" on you all?

Can you not see that he's still playing Hitler's playbook to get what he wants? (total domination anyone?)

Yep, be on the lookout for v2.0's gestapo crews as they're coming to cause havoc near you.

Trump sending federal law enforcement agents to Chicago, Albuquerque.

Who will be next? Maybe the Ukraine?

Trump posts misleading ad using Ukraine photo.

He's certainly following in v1.0's footsteps.

Is this the first glimmer of a reality hit?

Trump notices that he might not be the big hit he dreams of?...


Coronavirus: The week when everything changed for Trump
wrote:
... And the really big U-turn came...

... It was a stunning and painful reverse...

... If we're looking for a significant "thing" it is this. Last week, Trump fired his 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, and installed a new one. And it appears Bill Stepien has sat the president down and given him the ice cold bucket of water. That the polls are awful, and going in the wrong direction; that all is not lost but quickly could spin out of control. That a change of direction and tone is urgently needed. Particularly when it comes to anything and everything to do with Covid-19...

... For three and a half years the president has been able to define his own reality; to bend and fashion facts to suit his own narrative. The coronavirus has been unimpressed by his efforts...


Is this all a temporary 'make-believe reality' for the sake of Trumped desperate showmanship?


All only in the USA?
