The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

In the last analysis, Kennedy was surely right. People who see the policies they have voted for rejected again and again, by the very elites they defeated, will inevitably turn to other means to preserve what they have.

The "yellow vest" protests in Paris show us that.Patrick J. Buchanan


Quote II

“It’s important to tell the story of where we’ve been and what others are doing as well because we look at, for example, Germany, and how they’ve been able or they’re attempt to try to heal after the Holocaust. Germany paid reparations and they went through that process and they had that truth-telling process. And until America tells the truth about itself, we’re not going to heal.” Rep. Loony-Tune Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)


Quote III

The possibility that children’s past-life statements may be fantasies independent of any parental influence merits further attention as well. Can preexisting GNC lead a child to report past-life memories specifically as a member of a different sex, as if playing out gender nonconforming tendencies in fantasy? Several points argue against this possibility. First, although it is impossible to rule out that in some of these cases the child’s statements and behaviors may be rooted in fantasy, in more than half of our cases the idiosyncratic details of the past life have been found to match the life of an actual deceased individual. When limiting our analysis to such cases only, we find an equally strong association between GNC and memories of a life as a member of a different sex.”International Journal of Sexual Health


Quote IV

Although Hogan doesn't have much of a national profile, it's less of a stretch than you might think. Hogan's constituency isn't made up primarily of Trump fans....In other words, Hogan doesn't stand to lose much politically by taking on the president." The Bulwark's Andrew Egger

The Catholic students from Covington, KY are not the only victims of anti-religious bigotry. So is Mr. Gordon Giampietro, an attorney from Milwaukee, WI.

EXCLUSIVE: White House Kills Nomination Of Milwaukee Federal Judge Nominee Because Of
Baldwin’s Opposition To His Catholic Views

I have learned that the White House has informed prominent Milwaukee attorney Gordon Giampietro
he will not be re-nominated for a vacant position on the federal bench in Milwaukee. Giampietro has
been the target of a “blue slip” from Democratic Wisconsin Senator Tammy Baldwin who has criticized
Giampietro’s statement of support of Roman Catholic teachings on same sex marriage and birth
control. Giampietro is a practicing Catholic.

Following Baldwin’s opposition last year, the five Catholic bishops in Wisconsin wrote Baldwin a letter
asking her to reconsider and called for the confirmation of Giampietro. Giampietro has said Baldwin’s
comments were an attack on his Catholic faith. A “blue slip” is a Senate procedure that allows a senator
to block a judicial nominee from his or her state. It is not a law but a long-standing practice of the
senate. Sources tell me Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Lindsay Graham of South Carolina will not
budge on Giampietro because of Baldwin’s blue slip.


Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is a despicable bigot.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) forgot to drink his testosterone.

NBC (Nothing But Crap) has a conflict of interest. No wonder why NBC has sunk to gutter level, they have 400 million reasons for Buzzfeed to succeed.

Conflict of interest? What conflict of interest?

Who knew that Buzzfeed and the peacock network, NBC, had a cozy relationship to the tune of about 400 million dollars? Not many it seems.

After a weekend where the kindest thing you can say about the press is that they “messed” all over themselves like a brand new puppy after Muller corrected Buzzfeed and kids with MAGA hats at the March for Life were vilified for smiling, comes this lil nugget from Fox News.

The 9th Circus Court of Appeals once again backs government over the citizenry.

Late last week, the US Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit published an opinion (PDF) stating that California's regulation of fuel sales based on a lifecycle analysis of carbon emissions did not violate federal commerce rules.

California amends rules to push vehicles toward hydrogen, electricity, biofuel
Since 2011, California has had a Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) program, which requires fuel sellers to reduce their fuel's carbon intensity by certain deadlines. If oil, ethanol, or other fuel sellers can't meet those deadlines, they can buy credits from companies that have complied with the standard.

The right to carry a concealed weapon in Washington has been on the books since 1961. Just now Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib (D-WA) is concerned about these dangerous people.

Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib did not preside at the governor's address to a joint session of the Legislature on Tuesday because he felt vulnerable in the House chamber, where people can carry concealed weapons in the public galleries.

"There is no specific threat to me. There is no specific threat we know of, period," he said before the governor's speech. "It's about the policy."

White Couple Who Identify as Black Are Sure Their Baby Will Come Out Black, Too

“If it’s milk chocolate or a little bit lighter, it doesn’t matter.”
A white German couple who had artificially darkened their skin said that they’re expecting to have a black baby.

For most of her life model Martina Big was fair of both hair and skin. But in 2017 she went on the British morning show “This Morning” to declare that not only does she identify as an “African black woman,” but she has been getting tanning injections to become properly dark.

“In the past it was blonde Barbie with white skin but now it is [an] extreme exotic Barbie,” she told Barcroft TV at the time.

2) If RBG does leave the court and we get a decent replacement, would it be worth it for the Supreme Court to invest in a big "OVERTURNED" rubber stamp? It would save a ton of time when dealing with decisions from the 9th Circuit.

I can't parse that Buchanan quote. How can the elites who have been defeated reject the polices people have been voting for?

Voters are voting for a candidate that promises certain policies ... but then I get lost, because the elite (candidates) have been defeated by the voters?

97 Sky gazers at Ponte Vedra Beach were watching the rare lunar eclipse known as a super blood wolf moon on Sunday night when the high tide crept in, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office confirmed Monday.

"Known"? Known by whom?

When I was a child back in the 20th Century it was called a LUNAR ECLIPSE.

Do I take that segment at the top to mean that "past life" nonsense is being used to justify tranny-type child abuse? If I am reading that right, are these people for real? And the "past life" story from children - children who are (like most are) imaginative, creative, and attempt to synthesize their environment - is being accepted more or less at face value? And because about half of the stories can be mapped (not sure how the tortured the mapping is) onto some real person they could find, it means that "gender non-conforming" children are actually reverting to their *real* sex from a prior life through some kind of bungled sex-swapped reincarnation?

Please tell me I have this all desperately wrong, and that this isn't the nexus of stupid and evil in academic robes.

I used to have a recurring dream when I was very young about the time me and my two siblings were together before any of us were born. We were babies in three bassinets all in a row in a little cottage. Very peaceful and calm. Birds chirping, sunshine, flowers peeking in at the front window. One of the things we discussed was the order in which we would be born. A really nice man would show up every now and then (Jesus?) to see how we were doing. My brother left, then at some point my sister left, then I guess I left. There was a sense of timelessness about it. I used to try and tell everyone my dream but I couldn't articulate it very well.

168 "Germany paid reparations and they went through that process and they had that truth-telling process. And until America tells the truth about itself, we're not going to heal."


So we are finally going to hear how Lincoln was the first Republican president, and the Republican party was founded on freeing the slaves, and how the KKK was the militant arm of the Democrat party after the CW, and how all the lynchings were done by Democrats, and how a higher percentage of Republicans voted for the Civil Rights Act of '64 than Dems and how the patron saint of the Democrat party, Margaret Sanger, pushed legalized abortion to exterminate the blacks, and how the NRA was created in part to help freed blacks protect themselves from the KKK and how . . .

Continued for 50 pages of history America doesn't know about how evil the Democrats have been for 200 years . . .

Somehow I don't think this issue is going to pan out as well as AoC thinks it will.

Yeah, I mentioned that in the last thread. Socialism is a walk in the park compared to some of the things they've gone through over the centuries.

But some countries like Russia, China, and Cambodia, which saw not only massive killing of people who opposed socialism, but wholesale erasure and rewriting of history, I'm not so sure about. I don't see how you come back from that. Those people and nations are permanently changed.

The "yellow vest" protests in Paris show us that.Patrick J. Buchanan'

I have not read the full piece, but this seems poorly written and reasoned to me.

Buchanan seems to be saying:
1) The people voted against these measures.
2) The elites did them anyway.
3) The people are pissed off.
4) The French protests are an example.

While this theorem may be true here, a lot of the French people voted for the very same people who said they were going to do just what they did. They did it because they feared being called racist for voting for more 'extreme' (as they saw it) candidates. That they are now pissed off that their leaders are doing exactly what they said they were going to do when these guys voted for them is kind of stupid, actually.

I can see where the French protesters are coming from, but I would never have voted for Macron in the first fucking place. So you have sewn, so shall you reap. Suck it up buttercup and fricking vote different next time. But they won't, will they?

No. Lot like West Virginia. Marquette County votes 2 to 1 democrat because of the University and United Mine workers.

Rest of the UP Counties went for Trump.
Downstate, the State Capital and Detroit metro went to Hillary. (Another University in the State Capital, plus government workers.) Overall, Michigan went for Trump, but the Democrats took the governorship with a white female candidate. I think the GOP candidate got smeared but I didn't follow the local stuff.

I've always said Trump is/was democrat and drew a lot of support from the middle of the spectrum, especially Reagan Democrats.

273 {i]It's apparent that all the limited history AOC knows is from Howard Zinn textbooks.

I had the misfortune of reading the chapter on slavery from Zinn's book.

In summary:

1) He only discusses the United States - there is no indication that slavery existed in any other country.

2) He talks a lot about the slave trade and the "United States" - he fails to mention that the Constitution banned the slave trade, and that slave importation predated the establishment of the United States.

3) He talks about how slavers went a thousand miles inland to capture slaves - he failed to note that it wasn't white people going a thousand miles inland to capture slaves, but other African tribes.

4) He throws out a guess on what percentage of slaves died on the Middle Passage - I think it was 30%. British records (which required ship manifests both departing Africa and arriving in the Americas) shows that the death rate among slaves was less than 10%, and that the death rates among the crews was higher (tropical Africa was not a healthy place for people who didn't grow up there).

It's all very carefully worded - he goes to great lengths to keep from explicitly lying, but he expertly gives the impression that the United States is uniquely complicit in the institution of slavery.

This is the history book most college students have been learning American history from for years.

Andrew Johnson was his running mate in 1864 to form a fusion and reconciliation ticket. Johnson was a Union man from Tennessee, and it was hoped this would promote reconciliation after the War was over, which was in sight.

Yep - no mention of the Arab slave trade, no mention of slavery elsewhere in the Americas, no mention of slavery among Native Americans.

Only American white people are responsible for slavery.

I recall that there is a Yale class where the professor takes a survey at the beginning of the term to see what the students believe - a substantial faction of the students believe that slavery existed only in the United States.

Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at January 23, 2019 10:17 PM (wYseH)

Slave importation did predate the establishment of the US. The Constitution did not ban the slave trade, but protected the slave trade for a period or years - a demand of the Southern states no doubt, and probably part of the reason for the 3/5ths clause, but I'm too lazy to check. After that period expired, the slave trade was banned.

So, while the slave trade was not explicitly banned by the constitution, the ability for the federal government to end it was made implicit.

About the time they realized what a conflict of interest that was.

The change came about when Aaron Burr became VP under Thomas Jefferson, even though the two men hated and loathed each other. And everyone suddenly realized that Burr had every reason in the world to try to find some way to stick a shiv in Jefferson's back and get rewarded with the Presidency.

Jefferson was careful, and Burr ended up killing Hamilton, after which he had to get out of Dodge quick.

pushed him on this.

I take that back. A quick check shows he did align with the RR's before running. I thought otherwise because he was not really that political before and during the war, not as idealistic as a RR. Of course he owned a slave at one point and his wife owned slaves I think until the end or pretty close. My bad.

441 Check out this quote from George Orwell:

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself - anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called."


Ok that's just fucking terrifying now. I wish the left would stop reading 1984 like it's an instruction manual.

Sheridan was certainly well known in the 19th century - he was one of Grant's closest confidants. When Grant retired from the Army, Sherman took over as Commanding General (equivalent to a modern 5 Star, and there were no Joint Chiefs in those days) When Sherman retired in 1883, Sheridan took over as Commanding General of all US Military forces, a post he held until his death in 1888.

You are correct. In his extensive memoirs, Cold Harber was the only battle where Grant openly admitted to having made a terrible mistake.

503 Imagine the lulz with Presiden Trump and VP Hillary.

That happened to Jerry Brown, first time he was governor - the voters elected a Republican lieutenant governor.

Jerry wanted to run for President, but there was a California law saying that the lieutenant governor became acting governor if the governor was out of state for a short time - I think 48 hours.

So Jerry would go to Iowa for a couple of days, and the lieutenant governor would start signing bills and appointing judges and other state positions. I think Jerry successfully went to court to stop this.

The first White House is still standing.

For some reason Canadians like to brag that "they" (even though Canada wasn't even a country yet) "burned down the White House".

Nope. British troops torched the interior, but the original building is still standing.

In fact, it became known as the White House after it was whitewashed to hide the soot stains from the attempted arson.

They also burned the Library of Congress on the same expedition, but somehow they don't seem as proud of that.

I've read a very good extensive comparison of the two. Orwell said that Government would get so strong that it would control all of our actions, and impose a vicious tyranny on us. (some countries have done that, obviously) Huxley said no way, we would find ways to make life so completely easy that we would all just sit around and do drugs and amuse ourselves to death on pointless and trivial pursuits, and that libraries and knowledge would disapear because no one would bother to read anything any more, because it involved actual effort, which no one would want to make any more. In the end, government would take over by default, but only because nobody else could be bothered to actually do anything.

I give the nod to Huxley.

I was a little bit of a retard when young but it turns out it was pure indoctrination.

OTOH, I took one of those "political" quizzes sometime ago and answered based on what I believed when in college years before and it turns out I've always been conservative. For example, I loved Rush Limbaugh's TV show on WWOR-NY in 1992 when I was but a teen. But I wasn't political, and fairly uninformed, and was easily lead to think stupid shit like if we are wary of muslims, it's exactly the same thing as Naziism.

579 The corruption of language as an avenue to power is an ancient evil, one that keeps coming back over and over again. It's why Confucius named the Rectification of the Language as one of the most important tasks that must be accomplished if society is to be reformed and corruption driven out.

Noam Chomsky is famous for instantly citing his sources as he speaks (lies). Chomsky can go on a rant and instantly back up his "facts" with sources.

But what they don't say is the validity of his sources are dubious because they're all bullshit leftists with opinions like himself.

In other words, Chomsky will back up his opinions, which he'll call 'facts.' with other people's opinions pretending to be facts.

657 One of the few satisfying moments of Soviet history is reading about the fall and executions of Yagoda and Yezhov, the heads of the NKVD/KGB, each of whom reportedly fell to his knees (IIRC) and begged - unsuccessfully - for his life.

Posted by: Deplorable Jay Guevara at January 23, 2019 11:20 PM (WDxUi)


Yeah, Beria too.

I watched that flick, "The Death Of Stalin". They got Beria's execution all wrong. Beria didn't have a hasty trial and execution (like Coucescu). Beria was held in the lovely accommodations of the Lubyanka for about 6 months before he was finally shot. I guess they wanted to get all the dirt Beria knew out of him before getting rid of him. No one liked Beria. I have to wonder how much longer Beria would have lived if Stalin had not died? I recently read/saw a bit about how Molotov was on the next purge list when they found Stalin dying.

Be forewarned, it is a factual description and reads like a text book sometimes and it will take you sometime to get through, more if you haven't been following the whole thing closely. If you have, it is amazing. It is either way. And it's all true.

731 His wife (a prominent Jewish activist) had already been sent to a camp. There is reasonably good evidence that Stalin was planning a mass purge of Jews, and exiling them to Siberia, before his untimely demise.
Posted by: The ARC of History at January 23, 2019 11:40 PM (I2/tG)


Stalin had already whacked a buttload of Jews who had been among the premier leaders of the USSR. For example, after Lenin died, Stalin ruled with Kameniev and Zinoviev, both Jewish, and each of whom met his fate in the Lubyanka after Stalin had Kirov assassinated. Add to that Yagoda, Yezhov, and a few others whose names I don't now recall.

The KKK was actually in quite a number of places in the North, but even if Trump's father was a member of the KKK (who knows where Milano got this information from) her reasoning doesn't follow.

John Brennan was the ringleader of the whole Russian collusion thing. He created the "evidence" that found its way back to the FBI.

He ran the thing right out of his CIA office, using his foreign operatives and buddies to help gin it up.

They were thinking Hillary would win, and then they would use this to arrest and imprison Trump for the Russian collusion.

It was to be a clear message to any other billionaires with ideas about taking on the Deep State.

757 It doesn't matter whether Trump speaks this Tuesday night. What matters is the optics of Trump speaking at his own SOTU that the public is well used to seeing from "incumbent" Presidents.

A SOTU that he has twice got up with the bases juiced and slugged out of his zip code - and he will do this with either Peloser behind him, or an empty chair with a cardboard cutout of Peloser behind him. Either way - he wins BIGLY.

And this is all after a deal has been struck to reopen the government, whereupon he will use said speech to deliver in front of the entire world the news that he has kept yet another promise (wall) to the American people, spiking the football with the oh-so-delicate, feather-touch aplomb for which Donald J. Trump is well known.

Peloser really shot herself in the foot this time and probably already knows it. She and her party would have MUCH been better off with him giving a SOTU during the shutdown where he could be easily painted to look like a failure, or be seen bragging while "families are suffering". But Trump's enemies seem to do that kind of thing... A LOT.

Re SOTU history. Washington and Adams gave such speeches. Jefferson ended it, on grounds that it was to much like the King's speech to parliament, and therefore unAmerican.

1. Create or locate a flow of cash going from one place to another.
2. Arrange a location near the flow.

Any sort of reparations would require a bureaucracy to make certain the money got from the taxpayers to the recipients. And I am sure that would take no more than 40 to 60% of the funds. Sure would provide jobs for a lot of *-Studies graduates though.

Unlike in the US, I see no reason to think that, in fact, a majority of Germans actually have opposed the stupefyingly idiotic policies of the last few years, but were ignored/betrayed/duped by office-holders.


Talked to some Germans yesterday, really wanted to ask them about the situation there, but was having too good a discussion of military aviation, WWII issues, to spoil it.

854 In every big transaction, there is a magic moment during which a man has surrendered a treasure, and during which the man who is due to receive it has not yet done so. An alert lawyer will make that moment his own, possessing the treasure for a magic microsecond, taking a little of it, passing it on. If the man who is to receive the treasure is unused to wealth, has an inferiority complex and shapeless feelings of guilt, as most people do, the lawyer can often take as much as half the bundle, and still receive the recipient’s blubbering thanks. –

905 YD: I wonder what would have happened in Russia if Schiklgruber had decided *not* to invade Poland, but just suckerpunched Denmark and France in 1939 instead.

And what would have happened in Poland. Poland as of 1939 was already trending antiSemitic. If Addie had assured Poland: nah, y'all are doing good there, keeping our flank against Jewish Bolshevism . . .

The lawyer chick Tucker had on was an expert on defamation/libel law. I don't think she said they wouldn't go anywhere, just pointed out some hurdles.

She did point out that lawsuits against members of Congress wouldn't go anywhere because, thanks to the Westfall Act of 1989.

That gives them absolute immunity from libel and most other common law tort claims.

910 How many really bad Twilight Zone episodes can you think of?

---------

The last one of the series, The Bewitchin' Pool, pretty much blew chunks. It was an Earle Hamner story (The Waltons) with bad casting, bad acting and lousy directing.

To be fair, background noise during filming required the dubbing of the little girl's voice by Rocky the Squirrel. Distracting, but entertaining.

Comedian Bill Burr does a bit about why Hitler but not Stalin or Mao? Meaning, why is Hitler always invoked as the worst of the worst but Stalin and Mao, who killed millions more people than Hitler ever dreamed of, aren't really as the ultimate insult? He's puzzled by it but it's very simple, Bill. The left thinks Hitler was right-wing while Stalin and Mao were commies.

936 Robert Redford played Death in a Twilight Zone episode. He sweet talks a scared old lady into going with him on that last journey.

There was another one about an old man who's walking along with his dog. He just died, he's trying to figure out where the path he's on is taking him. He comes across a guy at a gate, telling him Heaven is in here, come right in, almost like a carnival barker, promising all sorts of good things. The old man hesitates. The dog growls at the guy at the gate, who tells him his dog can't come in. The old man doesn't like that, but the carnival barker has just about convinced him with his slick promises, when the dog physically prevents his master from entering, of course it's really Hell and once you enter you can't leave. The relieved old man walks along with his dog, hearing the guy at the gate yelling after him, and finds the real Heaven a little further down the path where he and his dog are welcomed.

I wish, ha ha. But when I viewed the small exhibit on the Davy Crockett at the Museum of Atomic Testing in Las Vegas, I learned that for the Davy Crockett test (Lil' Guy?), they mounted the launcher on a Weasel, and fired it from there. The Davy Crockett missile looked like a 20-pound propane cylinder with a 3-foot rocket tube attached.


A number of inventors in Canada tried building aero-sleds. I have seen movies of them in operation. They go fine on frozen lakes, and very flat ground. Hills, and slushy conditions stymie them, big time.

But one of the Jeeps on the tour broke down, and we had to make emergency repairs, and going further into the back country would have been unwise, so we turned around and went back the way we came.

Ol' Marlin did get out of the jeep a time or two:

It was Johnny Carson (who had Jim on a million times) who started the joking of Marlin in the jeep, saying "Jim go wrestle than rino in heat while I make martinis in the jeep".

Jim said that bothered Marlin at first, but one of the producers told him, "Marlin, when Johnny is joking about you, that's the highest form of flattery there is." Marlin was OK with it after that.

Lenny Bruce bumps into her, bails her out, and she returns the favor. That got me interested in Lenny Bruce and his real life history.

That's actually a very real and important point. The Leftwing mob would be the ones throwing Lenny Bruce in jail.

This would be a good topic for someone like Tucker Carlson.

Sean Hannity has the ability to do it too, but he would cut off all his guests when they try to answer his questions.

And today, judging from the words coming out of their mouth, many popular comedians today are much more foul-mouthed than Lenny Bruce. Some like Bill Mahr get their own TV shows.

And in Cali and NY, how many voters were citizens?


It was a topic on Tucker last night, the corrupt voter rolls in Democrat states. It wasn't titled that way, but that was the underlying issue. He was pointing out the specific results.

I have preached a lot about the corrupt Motor Voter laws. I live in a corrupt state; I have seen the corruption happen with my own eyes. The sanctitude of voter rolls, specifically only actual citizens legally eligible to vote, must be realized. They are a STD-infested whore right now. And it's fixable.

I'm not even talking about the person who votes twice, or votes using their gramma in failing health. That's nothing.


Our system insures non-citizens can easily and freely attain a voter card, and virtually nobody checks it. The government looks the other way, and if the topic is mentioned, the questioner is the questioned.

And for the few that DO want to check it, like in Kansas, the Leftists will attack mercilessly to stop it from happening.

Only citizens should vote. Until this is fixed, don't expect reality to be reflected at the polls.

Like Socialist Macron in France, Socialist Maduro in Venezuela isn't going to let a couple hundred thousand citizens 'taking it to the streets' force him out. Power hungry, power retention is the name of the game.

1074 It looks like California had a 75% graduation rate in 2011, btw, so modern high school is clearly very doable passable.

I live in a county that had a single billionaire type. This is about 20 years ago. Anyway, the county taxes were nice and low, because this one billionaire was paying about 90% of them. He took it to court, and won, and our county taxes tripled the next year.

Well what he can do is give a series of "states of the union" "political rallies" around the country that illustrate the necessity of border enforcement and the wall while simultaneously savaging Pelosi and the Democrats, the media would have to cover it, then at some later date while the pressure is still on, call a special session of congress, which is his constitutional precognitive to do and give a SOTU speech.

1122 According to Ocasio Cortez we owe reparations to minority groups that barely existed in the US during the New Deal. Hispanics were less than 1% of the population, Asians not even a rounding error. Under this system future Americans, if there are any, will be paying for the oppression of the descendants of Somalis and Pakistanis.
It boggles the mind but this is where this country is headed. Everything they think they know and makes them smart and independent thinkers is leftist lies and propaganda. How can you even argue with such insanity, which is admired and shared by millions? You can't, there is not a common reality to start a discussion.

1125 the Twitter account that started the whole Covington thing was a fake name, but somehow got the whole "meme" started. "Theory" would be that DeepState pushes this stuff out of the ether, or maybe that is what Buzzfeed is used for ... to push these memes, allowing major networks to report it as "news" ... because it was now "trending".


It is PsyOp (meme war) on every level, as we see with the FusionGPS fabrication of Trump/Russia. It went into high levels of the FBI before it ever became public, with their paid "journolistas" cranking out "news reports" to establish the propaganda. Clearly our government is involved in trying to take down a duly elected president ... and AG Barr is close friends with Mueller (apparently) ... so it sure seems like they still have control ...
