Hey all, I know it goes beyond the claimed 2-minute attention span of some around here, but the "Trump @ War" documentary is currently available on YouTube. It's definitely worth a watch:

Wow. Slick production. There's a new superhero in town. Will he play himself in the film? Who will play Darth Vader and the evil witch of the west? Released just in time for the midterms, I reckon.

Did you watch it and for what reason did you watch this and decide to post this here. I really hope it was not to aggravate in some way.
Have you the counter of this for balance.

This is not a documentary. It is a promotional piece of political whip & propaganda work by Bannon , timed for the US mid term elections.

Anyone with a h'aporth of sense should be looking for national and international hard facts and figures.

It is the buying into a preferred rhetoric like this that spoils & divides nations and its people rather than engaging in a democratic process.

Yes, I watched "Trump at War" a few hours ago after my questions regarding his achievements went unanswered on the other thread. It occurs to me that we've all been negatively influenced by all the bad things we keep getting told about him. Sure he's had loads of names thrown at him and he's a very imperfect and eccentric person, elected when the line up of alternatives was really crap. But since being elected he's done what he said he would do and genuinely achieved a lot and says and does what he believes in a very non-presidential way. The film appears to be a fairly accurate and authentic summary of the last two and a half years of US politics, and I of course welcome those who want to show where the summary is inaccurate or to fill in any gaps.

If someone needs to explain it to you, you haven't been paying attention. I won't waste my time.

His achievements so far, are illusions. Yes, he's deregulated and lowered taxes, particularly for the top earners, and there will always be a bit of bounce from that. So far though, the average taxpayer hasn't experienced much of it, but has only been told they have. That euphoria will eventually wear off. It always does.

​​​​​​And as the senseless trade war heats up and Americans start to feel it in their pocketbooks, companies quietly establish presence in more trade-friendly jurisdictions, job creation begins to falter, and unregulated banks start freely lending to an eager population unable to service that debt... Well, we know how that works out.

Some of the analysis I've seen here have shown little or no increased investment as a result of the tax cuts, although pay does seem to be increasing along with employment rates.

The same analysis looked at the cost of those tax cuts, which the increased tariffs (particularly China) will be paying for. And as we know, tariffs are passed on to the consumer so those big tax cuts for the rich are being paid for by your average Joe.

Are you familiar with the term "confirmation bias" at all?

So, did he actually post a link to the Bannon "movie" ?

I use air quotes for "movie" because that's how The Human Pustule characterized his shitty little propaganda piece that he can't even find an audience for . Nobody else called it a movie, just Bannon.

I really do wonder about the type of mind that would be so easily seduced by such obvious manipulation. I suppose the same type that used to line up to buy snake-oil or give their hard-earned wages to a tent-show revivalist.

It's what happens when you take too many Infowars supplements.
