    Does Trump lie too much? Is he becoming like the "Thought Police" of 1984?

    I understand that politicians are spin-doctors in their own right.  However, it seems like Trump is trying to rewrite history, much like the "Thought Police" in Orwell's _1984_.  He provided remarkably inaccurate facts about the attendance at his inauguration speech.  Since being in office, the White House has deleted website pages about Civil Rights and Climate Change.  A simple web search will reveal many more examples.  Is he just catering to his supporters or is he really trying to change the facts of the world?  He's not fixing his inaccurate statements.  What's his deal?

    Luke, Attendance at the Inauguration, who cares. What pages were deleted specifically? A web search of what? He is catering to the will of the people that made him president, and he is working off those campaign goals.
    Name a Major inaccurate statement and how is it inaccurate? Disregard the ones mentioned in your ? as they are not important.

    As for Climate Change, I wrote a ? on it that you can't answer because there is no answer for it.
    What facts of the world. Even the Big Bang Theory while well established in the current scientific community is NOT a fact. Neither is Einstein's Theory of Relativity, and even Einstein knew it because he tried till he died to perfect his Grand Unification Theory.

    So what is your definition of facts as stated in your ?.
    Trump's deal is to change the continued decline of the US for the last 28years, into to the great United States that it once was, a very long time ago.

    As far as the thought police, you don't have to look any further than the NSA, the enacting of the Patriot Act with out any declared wars, by pres GW Bush, and extended by pres Barack Obama. The social reengineering by Hollywood and the Main Stream Media. A media that claims to be a News organization, but it doesn't report the news, it season's the few facts with its pundits, and tone in which it delivers it to their audience. They report on everything that Trump accomplishes for the people as a negative, while never acknowledging the failures of the democrats, especially Hillary Clinton and pres Barack Obama. That is subliminal thought control.

    I really don't understand the point of your question, although I tried to answer every point you stated in it. For the record, I am not democrat, republican, independent or any label. It just so happens that I think the democrats, and their liberals have done more damage to the average person than the republicans. I like Donald Trump because both the democrats and the republicans fear that he will break their do nothing political clubs. We don't need lifetime politicians in congress, we need politicians that will work for the people that elected them, and move the politics to the center.
    Del if u wish.

    Inauguration turnout.... take a look at this giga photo from CNN (so it must be true yeah?)

    http://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2017/01/politic...

    Sure looks like a whole lot of people there...

    He won, he's your POTUS for the next four years at least, get over it and stop trying to find fault, all politicians are at fault, Trump is no worse, and may be a whole lot better than the earlier POTUS's.

    He could hardly be less effective than Obama.

      Trump WON the majority of counties by a vast margin, and you have a constitutional republic, not a 'democracy' with safeguards built in to ensure that 'sanctuary states' like your own California, cannot control the whole USA.

      Like it or leave.

      John, why so aggressive? Why do people have to LEAVE if they disagree or dislike something? That seems very much against what our founding fathers originally intended. All I hear from Trump supporters are regurgitations of each other's naivety.

      Not hostile, I'm not even American, just fed up of whinging people nit picking because their choice lost the votes of middle America.

      Trump was voted in by those people, fair and square, and it's California that's speaking of leaving...

      I'm not whining, only asking a question. Conversations like these are important to flush out further information. Think about what he is doing to our country on a vibrational level. People are scared and worried. That's why they are speaking up/out.

      "what he is doing to our country on a vibrational level" - Please!

      He is going to bring the 'vibrational' level back to normal, the liberal elite have changed it into what they wished it to be, it appears middle America would like it normalized.

      I thought that maybe, based off of your hubs, you could feel vibrations. I guess not. It's ok. I would check your own tonality, though, and investigate your own spirit and energy; especially how you come off to others.

      I exist in two areas, the world and the Kingdom, your question was based in the world, I answered accordingly.
      But I take your point, frankly, I am just fed up of people nit picking over Trump. If he is a 'wrong un' he will be deposed.

      I agree with you, John, and thank you for being civil.  Only time will tell what Trump is truly like.  Have a nice weekend smile

      AP, the last guy put in place things that he thought made sense, many did not, Trump will do what he thinks make sense, and as I said, if he gets it wrong, he fails and will be deposed. You may not like his objectives, but he WON so, he can do them.

      SOME Americans are at war with Trump, however those are the liberal left who LOST, but the millions of middle Americans who voted him into power, they are not at war with Trump, though they may well go to war against the rioters if needed.

      Really?..... time will tell, meanwhile there are more important things than playing table tennis with you.

      I think you are suffering a breakdown, take a deep breath and accept that if America can survive the last 50 years of corrupt power elite misrule, it can survive Trump, and may come out stronger once the liberals have stopped whinging.
