About Pappachoppers

About Me “Pappachoppers” is my chosen pen (nom de plume), or literary name. Not initially a pseudonym, because its my daughter’s happy nickname for me. I say “happy,” because when displeased, my name will then be an extremely refined “Dad!” I haven’t the foggiest ideal where or how she came up with “Pappachoppers,” but I like it as much as I love her for giving it to me, and her encouraging me to post a blog. My preference to remain anonymous correlates directly with the subject of many of my blogs. As, it is my passion to expose the lack of truth and civility in America’s politics by politicians, political pundits, talk show host, and the public. However, I do appreciate your views, and will reply to any civil comments and recommendations. Thank You ~ Pappachoppers AKA Truth Sayer

Imagined False History

Imagined False History

There has, and more than likely continue to be discussions about confederate statues mounted on government and public land throughout the U.S. Why would these so-called religious people think to build statues well after the civil war of evil people who treated and degraded other humans worst than farm animals? To remind Blacks ” know their place.” The simplest litmus test to determine if they (the statues) stay or go is to act upon one single question: “What country in the present or past, built or permitted statues in government or public places depicting tractors who attempted to overthrow the government?” None! Regardless if they are moved or taken down now or in the future, images of these traitors will not be honored or respected in the ever-changing America. They will be removed because they occupy a space where luxury condos will be more fitting; scrap metal scavengers will now have a newfound source of brass and copper to take to the scrap yard for coin; spray paint artist will freshen up the color of the horse and traitor with a bright pink! And, the old confederacy lover will be sad because his Made in China sweat stained confederate flag cap will be the only possession left linking him to his imaginary glorious history. Even though history book are filled with the raw unadulterated truth about his beloved institution of slavery, he’ll be disinterested. As, living a lie is much more comforting.

Running Lying Man….

We the public have just been informed that Special Counsel Bob Mueller impanels a new Russia Grand Jury.    My advice to Trump,  family, and friends: don’t just go on vacation – Flee to Russia!  It saddens me to inform you that your friend Vladimir Putin had a prior appointed bare-shirt riding lessons, and will not be able to greet you. However, It will be comforting to you to know that a countryman you know, American former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) employee Edward Snowden will be in the Welcoming Wagon to greet you.  I won’t prevaricate, as this will be a difficult period of time for you.  If you decide not to leave the country, I am honored to dedicate your Swan Song

An Independent Chair

Democrats continue saying “we got to start winning elections.” Such comment is indicative of the fact that Democratic leaders still fail to see where they falter with voters – Especially their core constituents.  They continue to whimper and snivel the same aged  tune how ‘Republicans are bad.’  Which I admit is not only true, but an understatement.  On the other hand,  Democrats still have their head in a cloud. But I suspect in an unmentionable undisclosed location regarding why they continue losing the overwhelming majority of elected positions all across the nation each year.  Lately, in a move of sheer desperation, they began to turn against themselves.  Who would have guessed the first likely to be driven from the pack leadership would be Nancy.  Yes, that Nancy; the one that Republicans love to hate.  Why you ask?  Because Republicans said so.   The mere mentioning of her name to the Republican base is equivalent to Pavlov’s dog classical conditioning.  Salivating instantly and unintentionally at the very sound of her name.    And Republican leadership know all to well that Red meat words like “Nancy  Pelosi” and “Obama” will  fill up their coffers.

Being an independent has its advantages.  Its like sitting in a comfortable cozy armchair.   Which is much better than a Democratic K-mart Blue Light special lawn chair, designed to be missing before the election, and fall apart after the election. Or, the overly priced Republican  3 legged fake leather stool with one broken leg.   I would hazard a guess that such a  stool will be used in their health Care Plan to reduce cost.    I think you get the point.  Toodles, its time for my toddy (freshly ground hot Colombian coffee with a dash of Irish cream liquor).

Lies, Dam Lies, and Trump Lies

Lies, Dam Lies, and Trump Lies

Although the U.S. News and World Report describes Trump’s disingenuous statements as “casual elasticity with the truth,” such lighthearted and polished explanations should only be reserved for youngsters who tell “stories, fibs, untruths.” Or, as the British call fabrications of the truth: “Porkies.”   In Trump’s case, lets call it like it is — Outright dam lies!  Lies flows smoothly from Trumps lips so often and so fast that the star-crossed news media can’t keep up with them.   Voters and citizens throughout the world continue to watch speechless, jaw-dropped newscasters gasping with “deer in the headlight stares,” not knowing how to keep up with the Donald’s fleet-of-tongue lies. Truth be told, Trump has mastered his own style of lying by crafting the infamous Bernie Madoff’s pyramid scheme with an enhanced style of Reality show splendor.

 Allow me to explain. New York Times writer Nicholas Kristof wrote that “We should be guard dogs, not lap dogs, and when the public sees Trump as more honest than Clinton, something has gone wrong.[1]” A classic example of Trump’s recent showmanship, and his ability to control others occurred when he met with Dr. Oz to review his health and exercise habits. The deluded Dr. Oz asked him: How do you stay healthy on the campaign trail? Trump’s replied “When I’m speaking in front of 15 and 20,000 people and I’m up there using a lot of motion, I guess in it’s own way, it’s a pretty healthy act. I really enjoy doing it. A lot of times these rooms are very hot, like saunas, and I guess that is a form of exercise and, you know?” Did Doctor Oz challenge Trump’s statement that using a lot of [hand and arm] motions was not exercise? No, of course not. The good doctor humbly nodded his approval and meekly changed the subject.

Unlike the loyal followers of his ‘dog Whistle’ who drools when fed scraps of red meat rhetoric, Devious Donald leads the news medial around on his ‘Tweet Leash’. On September 16th, at 9:32 AM he pulled off one of the most impressive political hustles in American history by tweeting “I am now going to the brand new Trump International, Hotel D.C. for a major statement.”   His mark was directed to the ever-gullible news media. In hindsight, it’s remarkable how duping the highly educated and susceptible reporters required no other shills (accomplices in scams), except the unsuspecting news reporters. Any self-respecting flimflam scoundrel will verify that the best con game is when the unknowing accomplices are also the marks.

Upon receiving Dapper Donald’s tweet to assemble for a command performance, naive news reporters soared from far-flung distances to their Donald’s beckoning. It didn’t take long for Trump Tower to be surrounded with massive semi-tractor trailers, and vans with satellite dish reaching two stories blocking out the sun around Trump’s new tower. With cameramen in tow, they obediently filed into their assigned area and waited impatiently for the sizzling news to be articulated by their handler: The Donald. Knowing Trump, it would be unthinkable if he did not take advantage of his marks by using them for free live coverage to promote his new hotel. Why shouldn’t he enrich himself? After all, he was the Donald. Keeping the suspense elevated, in a soft voice he pitched the hotel eloquently, pointing out the beauty and the many amenities. After using free media to pitch his hotel, he wasn’t finished toying with their eagerness. As a prelude, to his “major statement,” Trump fed them generously with Patriotism by marching out a cadre of decorated generals and Medal of Honor recipients. When the climatic moment did finally arrive, Trump stated:

“Hillary Clinton and her campaign of 2008 started the birther controversy[2]. I finished it.  President Barack Obama was born in the United States.  Period. Now we all want to get back to making America strong again.”

Immediately after his brief proclamation, Dapper Donald exited the stage faster than a Pop Tart® springing out of a toaster; leaving the news media still salivating over their mikes in anticipation of a “major statement.” First to come out of shock was Jake Tapper from CNN. He said it best by announcing that Trump had pulled a “political Rick roll.[3]” Do you think that the Donald would slip away quietly, leaving his marks confused and dumfounded? If so, then you don’t know Con artist Donald.   Employing his favorite tool, the “tweet leash,” Trump gloated mockingly about his marks saying that “Donald Trumps Birther event is the greatest trick he ever pulled.”  Upon reading the tweet, a sensible person would think that the bamboozled news media would cowboy/cowgirl-up and dump their teaser. Not so. They whined, griped, and protested their outrage of being deceived on twitter and their media outlets. Later on, still whimpering and venting their frustration, they dried their tears and meekly trotted after their oppressor.

“Donald Trump’s birther event is the greatest trick he’s ever pulled”

Despite what one feels about him, Donald Trump built an epic political pyramid scheme with the same appeal and pretentiousness of his reality show.   All the while beating out sixteen Republican presidential contenders; most being seasoned politicians. One must remember that the Donald is a master of ad hominem; articulating veiled threats; lying; manipulating his “tweet leashed” news media; and feeding red meat rhetoric to his loyal disciples. How does he do it?

First, know that Trump has no reservations about telling a pack of lies and calling his opponents “Lyin’ Ted,” “Little Marco”, “Low Energy” Bush, “low life,” and a host of other names. He avoids honest questioners and those that displease him.   For example, when Mika Brzezinski, Co-host of Morning Joe called him on his statements; he releases a tirade of remarks. Stating that she “has gone wild with hate,” “very insecure,” “clown,” “off the wall,” “neurotic,” “not very bright,” and a “mess!“ When caught in a lie, the crafty Donald either double down, tell another lie, or he makes outrageous and insulting statements. Whereby, the hapless news medial drops challenging his previous lies and shocking statements, and pick up Trump’s new disingenuous assertion.  Again, before they can fact check and call him on it, the wily Donald is two steps ahead of them with a whole new parcel of new juicy lies and outrageous statements — leaving the news media again speechless in a mired of lies.

I’ve been told that Politifacts has hired extra staff to keep up with Trump’s perpetual contemptible statements and lies.  As, he has so many “Paints on Fire” lies most cognitive readers would think that the Donald’s pants should have burst in flames a long time ago.   As noted on the link below, Trump has broken the Lie Bank.  As, 54% of his statements are false or paints on fire.   And only a paltry 15% have been rated “True” or “Mostly True.”

                     Donald Trump    Hillary Clinton *

True                      4                             16

Mostly True              10                                48

Total                        35                                88


Mostly False            28                               16

False                        65                               15

Pants on Fire          30                               1

Total                        158                           120

Remember, these rankings only include the statements we’ve fact-checked after Clinton and Trump formally entered the race for president. — Politifacts

According to Politifacts[4] at the web sites below, Donald Trump has generated a new level of lying. When it comes to Trump, the word ‘lie’ does not suffice, nor is ‘dam lie’ adequate. I propose that we call such lying utterances as “Trump Lies.” The purpose of these lies, like all long con schemes, he has been calculating this con game with the ultimate goal of swindling the presidency of United from the American people.

“Release the Hounds” Alt-Right

“Release the Hounds” Alt-Right

If one were to take a pragmatic look at Donald Trump’s ideology of the world around him, we would see that his beliefs mirror that of the character Charles Montgomery ‘Mr. Burns’ in the television series ‘The Simpsons.’  I thought about the time when Mr. Burns said “You know Smithers, I think I’ll donate a million dollars to the local orphanage….. When pigs fly.”   Sure as the day follow night if it didn’t remind me of the Donald’s remark that “I’m really rich”.  I haven’t forgotten when Homer said, “You know, Mr. Burns, you’re the richest guy I know. Way richer than Lenny. ”  And, Mr. Burns, being the egoistic person he is, replies, “Yes, but I’d trade it all for a little more.”  Again, another reminder of Trump’s endless “I am rich” arrogance.  Of course Mr. Burn’s most memorable remark inquiring, “What was I laughing about? Ah yes, that crippled Irishman” was reminiscent of how Trump publically vilified a disabled person.   Mr. Burns said  “Hmm, one dollar for eternal happiness. Mmm… I’d be happier with the dollar.”  The Donald did one better; he is now offering a Special 2016 Election Dollar Bill featuring… himself of course.   Mr. Burn’s “Cheating is the gift man gives himself” is no different from Trump’s duplicitous dealings with contractors and the American public.

Regardless what they choose to call themselves, Tea-Republicans, Trump Republicans, or their newly polished obscured political trademark — Alternative Right, or more commonly know as the ‘Alt-Right.” Their brand is nothing more than a disingenuous and pitiful attempt to describe their surreptitious movement.  Which is nothing more than a conduit for slim dredged from the sewers of Trump World filled with anti-Semites, Birthers, White supremacists, and sewer grade radical principles.   

Those who answer the call of the Dog Whistle do not, and most likely will never know the ideology of the artful Donald’s approach to slay experienced moderates like “Low Energy Jeb Bush and Ohio’s Governor Kasich, as well as ultra-conservative evangelical Republican rivals Lyn’ Ted, Lil’ Marco, and Carly Fiorina.  Even when Trump’s Republican rivals told the truth, which didn’t happen often, Trump mangled the truth and ran roughshod over them.  Causing them to fold like a K-Mart Blue Light Special defective lawn chair.   For example, John Kasich said “But for the 11 million people – come on folks – we all know you can’t pick them up and ship them back across the border.  It’s a silly argument.”    Of course it was a “silly argument” to most Americans.   But devious Donald would have none of that.  Throwing out a chunk of red meat trump crowed, ” “I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, Believe me — and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”  They devoured his red meat rant whole without chewing. And, Trump hasn’t looked back since.

Cutting to the chase, the ultra right-wing represented by the Alt-Right, endorsed one of the greatest snake oil selling con man of the 21st Century.  It may surprise many people that I am an admirer of W.F. Buckley brand of conservatism.  I admire his ideals of civility in political discourse, even though I may disagree with his brand of conservatism; which is void of hate, divisiveness, bigotry, and racism as demonstrated by Trump’s rhetoric.  Sadly, Trump’s supporters fail to realize that he is a master of classical rhetoric — what Plato called “the art of winning the soul by discourse.” And yes, while Donald Trump may seem to be a clown or buffoon, he is in fact one of the most effective practitioners of persuasive rhetoric the political world has seen in a long time. If he wins the GOP nomination it will be in large part because of his mastery of rhetoric.”[1]

Trump’s flock continues to heed his rhetoric every day without pause to seek out the validity of his comments.   Why would they want to know the truth?  Because it validates the existence of others in their world to contrasts without guilt or remorse those they dislike, hate, or appear inferior to them.  Daily feeding is necessary to garner funding and dedication of Trump followers. It would be unthinkable for him to go to Mexico and return the same day, and not provide juicy morsels for his flock.  As demonstrated upon his return, he provided generious portions of adulterated red meat to the faithful.  Come November Election Day, ” Release the hounds” Alt-Right [2] will be the cry and hue from master Trump.  Alt-Right Trump supporters will lunge to fulfill their foolish errand. But they will falter and fail. Never realizing that the red meat they were being fed by a carnival barker had no sustenance needed for the progression of humankind, much less beneficial for this nation.  Donald Trump does not practice civility while engaging in political discourse — The necessity for comradely among all Americans.   Being humble or respectful towards others who may disagree with him is not in the vocabulary of a con man who avoids the truth by releasing the hounds of lies.

[2] “Occasionally, Mr. Burns orders Smithers to “release the hounds“, so as to let his vicious guard dogs attack any intruders, enemies or even invited guests.”

“We Feed Adulterated Raw Red meat* to The Republican Party Base”

If you believe….

  1. That President Obama was not born in America…
  2. That President Obama should visit a natural disaster early regardless that needed resources are taken reverted away from where it’s needed.
  3. That there is massive voter fraud in the United States.
  4. That Obama is going to take away your guns.
  5. That the U.S. election system is rigged.
  6. That Obama founded ISIS.
  7. That Hillary Clinton is the co-founder of ISIS….
  8. That “The Obama administration was actively supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq, the terrorist group that became the Islamic State.”
  9. That Russia is not in Crimea.
  10. The 2016 federal omnibus-spending bill “funds illegal immigrants coming in the U.S.
  11. Hillary Clinton’s plan is that “illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes get to stay.”
  12. Hillary Clinton is “proposing to print instant work permits for millions of illegal immigrants to come in and take everybody’s jobs, including low-income African-Americans.”
  13. One percent of what Rudy Giuliani says.
  14. Trump “will get over 95 percent of the African-American vote” in 4 years as he claims.

Then you are a True Red Meat Trump supporter who heard and believed in the call of the Dog Whistle….  

*Lies, hate, fear, racism, anger, sexism, and American is no longer a great place.
