Another article from 2016, exposing Trump's pathological lying from court transcripts, where lie after lie was exposed and is now part of the public record.

Court documents are not "Fake News"...

Here are some of the statements he told that court, and for which he was exposed as a liar.
From the article linked below:

[Trump's Lie] Trump owned a 50 percent stake in the West Side Yards real estate development partnership.
(The Fact) Trump actually owned 30 percent, but he gave himself credit for a bigger stake because he had not been required to put up money to get that share: “Because of the fact that I put no money up, that 30 percent is equated to 50 percent.”

[Trump's Lie] He was paid $1 million for a single speech in 2005.
(The Fact) In reality, Trump was paid $400,000 for the speech. But, he said, advertising for the speech had added to the value of his brand. He believed that with the value of that publicity included, the true payment for the speech was more than $1 million.

[Trump's Lie] He “largely” owned the Waikiki Trump Tower building.
(The Fact) He didn’t own the building. Somebody else did. Trump had agreed to let his name be used on the building. But, Trump said, this licensing deal was so advantageous to him that it was “a form of ownership.”

[Trump's Lie] In the early 1990s, he was $9.2 billion in debt.
(The Fact) This was published in Trump's book "How to Get Rich” Trump uses this figure to make his comeback seem even more impressive. But his debt was never that high. Trump shifted the blame, saying co-author Meredith McIver put the number in.

[Trump's Lie] Trump Tower Las Vegas brought in $1.3 billion.
(The Fact) Trump acknowledged the actual value of units sold was $956 million but said the units he was “not actively selling,” and keeping as an investment, brought the total to $1.3 billion. Trump's falsehoods often include specific numbers, making them easily disprovable.

[Trump's Lie] His net worth in 2004 was $3.5 billion.
(The Fact) Even though at least two banks estimated his net worth to be much lower, Trump contended that they must have missed or discounted assets.

[Trump's Lie] Memberships at his golf club in Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., cost $300,000.
(The Fact) The memberships to this golf club were being sold for $200,000. Trump said he arrived at the higher number by including yearly fees that members had to pay after joining.

[Trump's Lie] Trump Tower Las Vegas was mostly sold out.
(The Fact) Trump was keeping a number of units for himself. The lawyer estimated that closer to three-quarters of the units had been sold. Trump's response was "What would you like me to say, 'Oh, gee, the building is not doing well, blah, blah, blah, come by the building’? Nobody talks that way. Who would ever talk that way?"

[Trump's Lie] Trump Tower Las Vegas was worth $4.3 million.
(The Fact) In an internal document, Trump had valued the property at $366 million. “I guess some people would say that was the value and other people would say maybe not,” Trump said when asked about the discrepancy.

[Trump's Lie] His Seven Springs property was worth $150 million because he planned to build homes on it.
(The Fact) Trump was touting that higher value, but he had not made any significant effort to build the homes that the value was based on. “I don't have a plan to build homes, because I don't want to build homes,” he said.

[Trump's Lie] He sold a home lot in California for about $4 million.
(The Fact) Property records indicated it was $1.4 million.

[Trump's Lie] His net worth was between $5 billion and $6 billion in the early 2000s.
(The Fact) Internal documents from the same period put his net worth around $3.5 billion. But he said that figure did not include the value of Trump’s personal brand.

[Trump's Lie] The operating income at Trump Tower was $17.5 million per year.
(The Fact) He actually got about $4 million in the year in question. Trump said the property was unusually vacant that year because of a turnover in tenants.

[Trump's Lie] He had “zero borrowings” from his father’s estate.
(The Fact) Trump said he borrowed about $9 million from his father’s estate.

[Trump's Lie] Trump said 22,000 people worked for him.
(The Fact) Trump was counting people who weren’t actually on his payroll -- employees of his businesses’ subcontractors and suppliers.

Now You Like It, Now You Don't: Brain Stimulation Changes Musical Enjoyment

Enjoyment of music is considered a subjective experience; what one person finds gratifying, another may find irritating. Music theorists have long emphasized that although musical taste is relative, our enjoyment of music, be it classical or heavy metal, arises, among other aspects, from structural features of music, such as chord or rhythm patterns that generate anticipation and expectancy.

Gameday. ⚔️ the Pistons host the Cavaliers

With all the injuries the Cavaliers have been hit with, coupled with an ugly start to the season, it forces the Cavaliers into multiple like up changes. The Iman Shumpert injuries linger for 5-7 days. Jose Calderon gets his second start of the season. The Pistons are playing their second game of a back to back, after winning against the Timberwolves on the road. The Pistons have the edge in multiple areas and have won all(3,) of their back-to-back games this season.

So far the Detroit Pistons have been one of the best teams in the league. They’re better than solid on the defensive end. They; take care of the ball, finish possessions with defensive rebounds, can score/shoot, move the ball, and they control the pace of games by slowing things down. The Pistons play tough, and have won their last 6 games at home.

The Cavaliers are currently on a 4 game winning streak, with a 5.4 Net rating. In a series of comeback wins and close games it would be nice to us control a game from start to finish; or at least put a game out of reach before the 5 minute mark of the 4th quarter. With a old roster that’s been hit the injury bug, rest in games/in between games is vital. This game marks the first time we will come into a game with 3 days of rest.

Theory: Flexibility is at the Heart of Human Intelligence

Centuries of study have yielded many theories about how the brain gives rise to human intelligence. Some neuroscientists think intelligence springs from a single region or neural network. Others argue that metabolism or the efficiency with which brain cells make use of essential resources are key.

Observations from ESO’s Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was travelling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It seems to be a dark red highly-elongated metallic or rocky object, about 400 metres long, and is unlike anything normally found in the Solar System.

Trump continues to tell blatant lies about Obama.
The article linked below exposes another one, and proposes one highly probable motive for Trump's obviously desperate need to tell these lies.

From the article linked below, dated Nov 14, 2017:

On Tuesday, Donald Trump told a story about Air Force One and former President Barack Obama. The only problem is that it never happened. Before boarding the plane to come home, Trump told the press that Air Force One was denied landing rights in the Philippines during a trip by his predecessor because U.S. relations with the nation were so bad.

Trump said Air Force One “never got to land” in the Philippines while be bragged about having “a very strong relationship” with the Southeast Asian nation.

“And as you know, we were having a lot of problems with the Philippines. The relationship with the past administration was horrible, to use a nice word,” Trump told reporters in Manila.

“I would say ‘horrible’ is putting it mildly. You know what happened. Many of you were there, and you never got to land,” he continued. “The plane came close but it didn’t land.”

The Associated Press fact-checked Trump’s claim:

Trump appeared to be referencing a meeting Obama canceled in September of 2016 with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte. The two were supposed to gather in Laos, but Obama canceled the meeting after Duterte referred to him as a “son of a bitch.”
We understand that Trump is jealous of President Obama, but his lies prove why he has so much disdain for fact-checkers. It’s sad that he doesn’t have that same disdain for murderous dictators, though.

Hey I'm famous. LOL! My poem "Night Thoughts of a Mottled Songbird" placed second in the IBPC monthly competition!


Night Thoughts of a Mottled Songbird
by Kenny A. Chaffin
from Wild Poetry Forum

Dark as the inside of a dog’s stomach
and brain going a hundred miles an hour
Why can I never sleep no wonder
my songs suffer. I keep slipping off this
branch, that don’t help and I can’t help
thinking that maybe this is all just a dream
Maybe nothing is real, Maybe some kind of trick
Maybe everything I think, everything I see, every song
I hear or think I hear is really just in my own head.

Maybe nothing is real…
Maybe I’m a brain in a vat
or a computer program
or just a fragment
of underdone potato
but, but, but, but, I am
therefore I think.

I think of seeds,
will there be seeds tomorrow
will the sun rise as it always does
will there be rain will I fly
through the air
tree to tree
twittering my song
hearing friends’ songs
or will they
be in my head
in the vat, in the lab
in the computer

Or is it real

I must stop
must sleep
must sing
stop the
monkey mind
and rest

Why do I keep slipping
off this branch, did some
fool pig-grease it, should
move to another branch
or is the grease on my feet
or in my mind
Will I slip from that
branch too

How can I sleep
How can I rest
slipping like this
Why me – is it because
I’m mottled – is it
my brain – is it me —
is it everyone could it
be the theory of bird mind
or just pig-grease inside a
black dog’s stomach vat

God of Birds!
Let me sleep
Let me rest
Let me sing

Judge's Comments:
This is very clever. So many of us are plagued with sleep deprivation, yet who but the author of this piece has (perhaps while suffering his/her own bout of insomnia) bothered to wonder if other creatures lie or sit awake all night, puzzling over their own dilemmas and conundrums, slipping off their perches until dawn. Reading this, I could see the bird tilting his head one way and the other, puzzling over how it is with him. It’s so fully informed with humor that it almost becomes a vaudeville routine, or one of those old Heckle and Jeckyl cartoons about the two interminably squabbling magpies tapping off cigar ash and speaking out of the sides of their beaks. Except now both magpies are inside one bird’s head, making him tilt one way and then another in a dialogue worthy of Sam Beckett. These are matters of considerable personal importance to me, since I suffer from both obstructive sleep apneas and late-onset narcolepsy (surely the most surreal of afflictions), but they are of general importance as well. If songs and dreams emanate from the same place, as well they might, how are we to arrive at the former without access to the latter? This poem deserves to have its own Saturday morning kid's show. --Michael Larrain

The #UnitedStates’ recent and high profile withdrawals from key international agreements and forums have triggered concerns over the future of US leadership of, and commitment to, the region. It is also to be hoped that Trump will spell out his core position on Sino-US relations, an anchor of regional stability and peace. While most nations in the region actually welcome a strong and prosperous #China and have long sought stable US-China relations, they also want Washington to contain what they see as excessive Chinese assertiveness under a nationalistic leadership and to challenge Beijing to become a responsible stakeholder in the community of states.

While #Trump and his Chinese counterpart #XiJinping have built a personal rapport bordering on 'bromance', they are faced with having to maintain cooperation between not only the world’s two largest economies, but its two greatest political adversaries – the leading free democracy and the last major communist-ruled nation. They have their task cut out.

From rainforests to croplands, boreal forests to mangroves, NASA will take a new look at terrestrial vegetation across our living planet over the next two years with several unique instruments in space. The missions will help scientists investigate the role of plants in Earth’s global carbon and water cycles.

Since the 1970s, NASA has studied life from space with satellites such as Landsat, Terra, Aqua and NASA/NOAA’s Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership. Scientists have used these data along with observations from international spacecraft to conduct a wide range of research, from detecting northward expansion of forests in the Arctic to monitoring how burned areas recover from wildfires.
