Erick Erickson Website “Resurgent” Paid By Pro-Cruz/Anti-Trump “Our Principles PAC”…

Thanks to the candidacy of Donald Trump the financial intersection of money and political opinion, as guided by the monetary motives therein, has brought some amazing revelations to the surface.

House Budget Chairman Paul Ryans-ERIC-ERICKSON-large

These financial/media relationships have largely, and historically, remained hidden.  They have damned sure never been publicly, clearly, and regularly stated so the consuming audience would know the presentation was fraught with financial conflict.

♦ The Senate Conservatives Fund (PAC) purchasing massive quantities ($400,000) of Mark Levin’s books in exchange for favorable candidacy political opinion.  Conveniently Hidden by the radio host who avoids mentioning the financial conflict created.

Then again, Levin never informed his audience of his family working within the Staff of Senator Ted Cruz either.  Does Levin’s endorsement, when contrast against the crony-constitutional advocacy, clarify with a little sunlight?  You decide.

♦ Or how about the Breitbart Media enterprise being run via an $11 million purchase from Billionaire Robert Mercer, who also funded Ted Cruz’s Super-PAC “Keep The Promise 1”, to the tune of $10 million.  Little overlooked facts, never openly shared for news consumers to determine source motive.   Pesky Sunlight

♦ Maybe the Ben Shapiro website “The Daily Wire“, being funded by the billionaire Wilks Brothers, Levi and Farris, in Texas.  Who also fund Ted Cruz and his Super-PAC “Keep The Promise”.  Shapiro never publicly disclosed the financial/content conflict, or the extent therein.  Could Shapiro support any other candidate other than who his content owners approved of?  Again, you decide.  (Yep, Pesky Sunlight)

♦ The Chairman of Glenn Beck’s Mercury One charity, David Barton, jointly running the Pro-Ted Cruz Super-PAC “Keep The Promise”; also never put into the sunlight by Glenn Beck or his various media enterprises so the consuming audience could filter presented political opinion through the filter of fiduciary connectionsMore Pesky Sunlight

These are just a few of the politically motivated – financially dependent – revelations we probably would never have known about were it not for Donald Trump presenting a genuinely conservative America-First platform; and as a direct consequence, the faux-constitutionalists having to reverse opinion simply to retain income.

♦ So it perhaps shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that Erick Erickson’s media venture “The Resurgent“, is taking Super-PAC money from the (formerly Scott Walker advocates and financial backers) Ricketts family of Wisconsin who fund OUR PRINCIPLES PAC to the tune of $3,000,000 in February alone.

FEC Monthly Filing ‘Amended’ Date 3/13/16

Look at where the money was spent (pdf link and below):

Yes, it appears there’s another conservative voice who can be added to the list of those whose opinions are conveniently tied to a financial incentive therein.

In addition to all of those in the Salem Media Communications network, along with Mark Levin, Glenn Beck, Ben Shapiro, Erick Erickson and anyone who is hosted upon the various media enterprises they front for…. all paid shrills dependent upon political graft.

Interesting indeed how the intersection of financial dependency drives the political ideology of these modern “conservative voices”.   However, this does increasingly explain how those same voices will stand and cheer for Mr. No-Budget/Omnibus, House Speaker Paul Ryan.

“Smaller government”?  Yeah, sure.

  1. Flush Blimpjaw has been unlistenable for twenty years, since he tooted the kazoo for Clinton’s NAFTA, ignored his Assault Weapon Ban, and ridiculed any caller who dared mention OKC or TWA 800, calling them ‘conspiracy kooks’, on behalf of his paymasters.

    Leviathan is quite taken with himself, and that mess in the jeans and porkpie hat needs to be on a locked ward.

    Laura Ingraham and Alex Jones have integrity, so I listen to them.

    As for savage, he’s through here, our family is done with him after his on-air rudeness last Friday, gassing off about dropping Trump simply because of the NE mistress story. Many here have said Savage is just using Trump to boost his show’s rating, they’re likely right.

    How much of his neurotic, self-absorbed, whining are we supposed to endure re the fifty eight thousand degrees, ninety two million books, all classics of course, his ‘waaaaahhh! I can’t go to England’ crying, the dog, the Chinese food, the wine, wine, wine; his ‘buy my book, buy my book’ routine along with “I know this, you don’t and I’m the only one who’ll tell you this.’

    Savage told me everything I needed to know about him last Friday, when he went off half-cocked – or perhaps completely cocked? – and threatened to drop his support of Trump. Who cares? Let him. What, he thinks he’s almighty Savage now?

    He needs to get off the cross, and on his feet, take more walks, less chicom grub; stuff some oxygen into those clotted arteries.

    No matter, he’s through here, all washed up. He’s proven himself to be unreliable, doing his show only an hour or two a few days a week, the rest of the time is filled by able studio engineers who quickly cut in tapes of prior shows when he walks out in a huff – well known among broadcast personnel for a decade or more.

    • The great thing about this country is we get to listen to who we want to listen to. I appreciate your commentary but was all it really necessary? Personally, to me, it sounds like all you are saying is you only listen to people whom you agree with 100% of the time. That tends to lead to very narrow minded thinking.

      Also, it it really necessary to make up names like “Flush Blimpjaw” and “Leviathan” When describing these hosts? It’s hard to take you seriously and perceive your musings to come from a mature individual when you stoop to third grade name play.

        I think a whole bunch of people are very disillusioned and very angry about things they are now learning regarding people like Levin, Limbaugh, Savage maybe, many media websites, and FOX News. If I recall correctly, a few weeks ago, lots of people commenting here were all happy about Savage. They thought he was great. Now, possibly, the same people aren’t so happy about Savage. Go back a little further in time, rinse and repeat for all these mentioned above.

        As you said, though, we can all listen to whomever we want.

        It’s been some years now since I stopped listening to these radio people. I never much liked Savage and really never listened to him. About the same time, I cut the cable, so Fox News was gone. I also, slowly but surely, stopped my daily visits to “conservative” websites I had been frequenting. I had some good reasons for my decisions, but I did not know, then, the money angles that Sundance has been bringing into the light for a long time now. Thank you, Sundance, for staying on these revelations.

        Part of what happened to me when I began dropping people and websites and Fox is that I had a reaction of looking at myself and feeling foolish and sort of dumb for having so slavishly trusted and believed most everything “they” had been saying. I specifically remember the “dawning” of the change in mental thinking about Mr. Limbaugh. Yes, I was getting pretty angry, but some of that anger was because I squirmed inside with personal embarrassment. That’s what happened to me, anyway.

        The “made-up names” thing is something I’m not too fond of either. But it’s all over the place. I think it’s silly. Others don’t.

          I find myself dropping a lot of people and websites I formerly listened too and visited. I still listen to Rush. I don’t think he is a poser or pretender. My problem with a lot of Trump bashers is the continued misrepresentation of Trump and his supporters. For example, I heard a soundbite today of Cruz STILL claiming that Trump is responsible for the the violence perpetrated by Soros’s paid thugs at his rallies and that Trump wants to break up NATO. The fact that people cannot disagree with Trump without lying about what he actually says is just too much. Its not that I don’t listen to opposing opinions. I cannot abide liars and deceivers. If someone wants to persuade me I’m wrong about Trump start by speaking the truth about him.

          I even heard Scott Ott on PJ Media the other day mocking and maligning Trump’s supporters.

He makes up 100 fold for it with other insights. Moreover, he has improved a lot over what he used to say. Nobody is obligated to listen to any of the talk show hosts. We haven’t yet got to the stage where loudspeakers blare propaganda in public.

          Many of us not in the political class, have been disgusted with #DIRTYFILTHMEDIA since the first Clinton race, when Paul Bagala and James Carville entered the scene back in the 90’s. “It’s the economy stupid”. Still remembered not for how insulting it was to voters, but for how economically the phrase allowed the media to create a cesspool of confusion.

          The Clinton mafia was used not only to get Bill elected but to so confuse the electorate about the details of the Clinton impeachment proceedings. “It depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is”. No other politician could have survived this without the behind-the-scenes snookering of the media by their typhoon of lies, half-truths, innuendo, phony website stories, and sympathetic on-air personalities.

          Today, although no connection has been made – except for the Soros’ paid ‘protesters’ there is an eerie familiarity to the media blanket of confusion, misinformation, lies, and hidden financial payoffs.

          The Clinton mafia silenced the women raped, assaulted and humiliated by Mrs. Clinton’s husband. A similar tactic is being used against Trump supporters.

          As these financial illegalities become more visible to the electorate, I suggest there is coordination between the Clinton dirty tricks duo and the Amanda Carpenters, Liz Mair, Michelle Fields and other #cruzsexscandal thieves.

      I said the same thing last Friday, but then I went ahead and listened to the next show when Mr. Trump came on and explained the whole thing about Lyin’ Ted not objecting to Melania Trump’s scantly clad 2000 GQ modeling picture being passed out by a Pro-Cruz Super-Pac right before the Utah (very religious Mormon groups ) voting began. Dr. Savage allowed Mr. Trump to finally get his story out, unlike the national media, and we see now how unfair Cruz is blaming Trump over the NE story, when it was REALLY Rubio’s team that gathered all that info about Cruz and the “cheating with five women story”.
      There have only been a couple of occasions that Michael has had a different opinion than Donald about things. They both agree on Borders, Language, and Culture (like Michael Savage’s new book).
      Let’s enjoy “Savage Nation” while we can, because until Donald Trump came along, I think Michael Savage, (and WE, too), had almost given up on this country. I didn’t even know why (until Donald Trump explained in his own way) what was going on in this world. I guess I was just drifting in this world–but now we all have some hope that we CAN Make America Great Again!

      Actually I think you are completely wrong about Savage, he’s never cared about the opinions of other talking head show hosts because he doesn’t want to invest himself in their paid off shill work, the likes of Beck, Levin and now Limbaugh are all obvious shills for red state media. NOT SAVAGE.

      If you don’t like his show, fine, DON’T LISTEN, by all means, suit yourself, but mischaracterizing him as simply using Trump, well, he’s a smart man, he could see the reasoning behind what you are accusing him of, but he still has a lot of insight that you won’t find from the standard political punditry.

      Savage understands EXACTLY why the establishment is afraid of Trump.

      This was one of the most informative pieces I have had the pleasure to read in a long long time. Of course I did a little research on my own and uncovered the Dan WIlks connection to Keep the Promise I and his ties to religious extremism. But this piece really peels back the layers and exposes these douche bags for who they really are. I supported Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012 and was backing Rand Paul this year until he got media-trumped(LOL). So, I jumped on the Trump train because any logical true conservative knows that Donald is really the only choice left in the race that makes any sense (unless I was just going to write in Rand’s name like I did his father’s in 08 and 12).

      The GOP’s focus is on globalism and lining their own pockets. The most ridiculous and unchallenged statement made during this campaign was by John Kasich when he had enormous balls to announce how stoked he was over Communist Chinese building a manufacturing plant in Dayton to hire Ohioans. Shockingly, not a single so-called journalist or any other politician has thrown the bullshit flag on that. The Chinese are using the $500 Billion they enjoy in annual trade deficits to buy America (they recently purchased the historic Hotel del Coronado here in San Diego). Where are our values! Who is benefiting in China from this trade deficit? Certainly it isn’t the Chinese people who are paid slave wages with no benefits in order that American consumers can enjoy super low prices on goods! No doubt, it is the Political Elite tyrants who are reaping the benefits. These elites are buying up America. It’s a disgrace. Truly, the Republicans and Democrats have become the Enemy Within.

      The Democrats, at least are honest about what they want to do to America while the Republican Establishment lies to its membership and to long time registered voting Republicans.

      Romney? Give me a break, Romney-Care just about sums up this big government liberal. Additionally, this prick earned his wealth through leveraged buyouts and putting workers out on the street. He isn’t even the same class as Donald Trump.

      Erickson made a big show a few years back abt enrolling in theology/divinity school. He said he felt called to pursue it. For awhile, everything he wrote was seasoned with comments abt his faith, Bible quotes and such. Great. No problem with that, but look where he is today? Like Beck, like Cruz, like so many before them, there are men that wear their faith like a shield that starts out protecting them but often ends up protecting their deeds that do not reflect a Christ-centered life.

      Most of us aren’t looking for a Pastor in Chief and as Trump supporters, we know very well that Trump has flaws and has made personal mistakes, like the rest of us. For whatever faults and sins chalked up to Trump’s account, he does not run from them. He knows his personal life has been front page news for 30 years. To me, his pursuit of the presidency may well be a desire to be redeemed–of course, he needs confession and then absolution from God to obtain it but maybe this begins that road for him. He’s nearly 70 yrs old, has seen, done and had everything imaginable to the human mind. He has grandchildren now and highly successful children. He’s at peace with his former wives, both of whom support his candidacy, speak well of him and have admiration for Melania. He’s at a point where donating to charities isn’t enough. From Day One of his campaign I sensed an earnest and authentic desire on his part to apply all he knows, all his successes, what he’s learned from his mistakes toward the presidency to improve the lives of the good people of this country. A country that has been very good to him. He knows the crooks, fakes, liars and phonies in politics and business and as he’s traveled this country seeing 10’s of thousands of common people, the people those crooks and liars make fun of and despise, Trump has become a better man. He wants to champion our causes, to be uplifting, a helper and protector. Spare me the rehearsed legalese rhetoric of Mr. Cruz, I feel far more comfortable putting the safety of my grandchildren in the hands of the Blue Collar Billionaire, who doesn’t talk down to me, criticize me, scold, threaten or insult me. He doesn’t claim an exclusive holy connection to God’s throne, he admits he’s a fellow sinner on the walkway of life like the rest of us.

      Why won’t the media report on Cruz’ sleazy financial connections and expose men given in this article that use the Word of the Lord as a front to hide their own sins, shortcomings and illicit dealings? Why won’t Rush or Mark or Glenn treat listeners with respect and talk abt the CO preacher that supports Cruz and also believes every state should pass a law making the gay lifestyle a felony and then round them up for arrest? Why will they belabor the Lewandowski story as if it is more significant than an ISIS attack, while never talking bluntly abt Cruz’ refusal to say whether or not he’s ever cheated on his wife? Why will self proclaimed ‘men of the cloth’ such as Beck, Barton and Erickson, et al, deceive, misinform, ignore facts, fail to report, on their Chosen One and yet, forget all abt their faith and the teachings of Jesus who gladly hung out with sinners and held the Pharisees, men that believed they were the only ones holy enough to be around Jesus, in contempt? Why is there forgiveness for Glenn Beck after a former life of drugs, alcohol, adultery, divorce but no forgiveness for fellow sinner, Donald Trump? Why is Trump’s braggadocios manner, affinity for attaching labels and calling people names despicable but when Rush does the same, no problem? The Devil is alive and well and resides on the shoulders of many sitting behind microphones. It’s not the will of God they are hearing in their ears and espousing over the airwaves.

    These Cruz super PACs are sure shuffling the big bucks around.
    Wonder if Lyin’ Ted knows anything about it?
    Oh wait—he has nothing to do with the PACs…he isn’t allowed to be involved with them, and so he does not talk to them.
    Um-hmm…
    Recall that pro-Cruz PAC, Keep the Promise I donated a half million dollars to Fiorina’s campaign (there’s a story about an alleged mistress and hush money there).
    Recall that pro-Cruz super PAC Make America Awesome ran the ad targeting Melania (gee, that PAC is run by an alleged mistress).
    The senator is a vile creature with tentacles all over the place.

      I thank God every day I found CTH and Sundance, reading is so much better for the soul. For 20 years I have listened to Rush, never questioning his reasoning. My husband and I blindly, and subconsciously listening on a daily basis. Cold turkey we have turned off talk radio, our lives are better, and we go with our gut feelings. Excluding Fox was another step in thinking for ourselves!!!!!

      Correction: POSTERS have a pro Trump tilt.

      Save for Joel Pollack and Milo I cannot name even one BB contributor who is really pro Trump. Nolte has changed, but only LATELY, and was a pro Felito for a long time. Not sure what has changed with Nolte, but same as others I suspect some financial gain for him, for now, since he was beat up by pro Trump BB readers. Probably decided to go with the flow for now.

      BB is heavily financed by Mercer, claiming that Mercer somehow has a pro Trump tilt is nuts, in so many ways. Mercer also finances biggest Felito Super PACs.

    Sundance, my eyes have been clearly opened.

    Watching one of my few holdouts, Stewart Varney. First he had Vicki McKenna as a guest, local Wisconsin talk radio. Stewart asked her why all of Wisconsin media was against Trump. She rattled off a few items, refuting Trump’s claims about Wisconsin finances, that seemed to impress Stewart’s panel. I looked her up…iHeart Radio.

    Then he had Rick Grennell on. Am familiar with him, but do not know his corporate backing. Seems he has a start up from 2011, Capitol Media Partners. Also bashing Trump with the now very tired ‘Trump is a Dem’. Does anyone know where his money comes from? Bain by any chance?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Grenell

    Does anyone have Varney’s email to ask him to clarify these contributors’ connections as they are pontificating?

    I love the way they throw around the word Conservatism and attack Trump as not being conservative. Yet, this bunch does anything but conserve; they are massively funded with big bucks by donors who want anything but what the true meaning of conservatism stands for. Such hypocrisy.

    Personally, and imho, never have and never will listen to talk radio, nor do I watch much TV anymore.

    It is all about one person with a microphone , a lot of advertisers and their own personal opinion which, through fancy and well constructed dialogues, they try to convince you, the voter, that they are important, thus they are right.

    So, how do I get my information? Through a variety of online news sites, and of course the treehouse. I even include the BBC and CNN.

    I make my own decision weighing all information presented. Rather than wasting time listening to pundents, I am using FB to post researched, and truthful facts…not innuendo. My goal is to enlighten one voter at a time….and…btw….I am up to 8 “switch-overs” to Trump ….mostly younger WOMEN, who had previously been convinced by the msm that Trump was the devil incarnate. This should be our mission.

    I posted the tearful video of the young, former Miss WI who is dying this morning. My FB friends are not going to see that video on the msm. Nor, the fact that the Trump family very quietly supports and serves many non profit organizations.

    Refer your FB friends to different issues and facts to Google and research for themselves. Especially young women who are daily bombarded with mis- information. Imho…listening to the radio pundents is wasted time.

    Excellent article which really helps to explain why Conservative websites are so bifurcated currently. I also explains why so called New Media websites are yielding to the same temptations as the old media. High costs require high donor support, and big donors want payback.
    Martin Luther discovered the solution 500 years ago. His low cost pamphlets overwhelmed high cost, state-owned book publishers. I suggest that we either create our own, inexpensive, very new media websites, such as http://TrumpFocus.com (my own), or back those that we can trust. Either way, we need simple, inexpensive websites that act as brochures that we can distribute to voters that still have the capacity to think for themselves. GO TRUMP.

    I still listen to Rush, because as an ex-radio guy, I’m fascinated by his subtlety. For the layperson, his particular flavor of Democrat bad/Republican good can be received as gospel, being the selling of the “conservative” brand as if it isn’t at all damaged, at least as represented by the GOPe. Consequently, he’s still banging that drum, as if Cruz is the bandleader.

    But from the start of this presidential cycle, I’ve applied an extreme filter, as if I’m watching PBS, because his subtlety is less so, and he really does employ the Schumer Principle: what I say now is all that matters, especially when making a point that asserts his “correctness,” kinda like O’Baxter on FNC does.

    Today, first hour, he compared two “reviews” of the CNN Town Hall, regarding Trump. One a screed from Horowitz at CR, the other he described as a fanzine gush over at Breitbart – without disclosing that CR is Levin territory, and that “TrumpBart” is actually Cruz PAC funder-owned. Did I email a lambast? You betcha.

    It’s hard to let slide an establishment-style omission, when used to sell a failed “conservative” brand. Without Sundance and CTH, most of us would be otherwise clueless.

    In my opinion, we all need to forget about the GOPe’s stalwarts and their allies’ machinations and manipulations via Old Media (TV, Radio, Newspapers). All attention to draw in new voters for Trump needs to be directed towards the younger generations via Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). They, despite their cultural libertarian leanings which may turn many older people off, are our natural allies in this battle against the elite establishment of both political parties.

    We all see the same problems, we just prefer different solutions. We must do our best to convince them that Trump is on their side and is not the fascist/corporatist that the elites are convincing them he is through propaganda and street performance protests. They, like us, see their futures crashing down around them which is why so many are gravitating to Bernie. They can see clearly what the DNCe is doing with superdelegates to deny Bernie the nomination and it is making them just as angry as we are with our authoritarian elites.

    I’d suggest that people educate themselves on what exactly our Millenials did in revolt against SJWs and the Leftist Powers That Be during #GamerGate, they stopped them dead in their tracks!

    Go to YouTube and watch the two-part documentary named “Gamergate the documentary” and see what happened for yourselves: Part 1 – https://youtu.be/Z7ubG5nG2Gc & Part 2 – https://youtu.be/1T2-sPc57-8 .
    That incident woke up many Millenials to the nightmare that our so-called “betters” have in store for all of us. And it is still ongoing because the harcore leftists never give up.

    Tune in to the younger generations’ fears and apprehension about the future and help to educate them about socialism’s failures, because they truly have no clue. They have been made ignorant of the past intentionally by our media and especially their teachers and professors. Stop thinking they are just “stupid and spoiled brats”! What they have been indoctrinated with their entire lives isn’t their fault, it’s the older (leftist-elite) generations who have manipulated them to be this way. They are starving for honest information. All we have to do is feed them a morsels of truth and watch their freshly nourished minds light up in needed recognition instead of the numb confusion they’ve been gourged on forever!

    The mask is slipping away from their eyes, slowly but surely. We, who lived during the Cold War, and know the truth, must be there to show them the true meaning of freedom and liberty that we learned from our own experiences. We can’t reach the hardcore indoctrinated, many are too far gone, but for those on the fence who sense the lies and deceit, we should recognize them, and instead of mocking or shaming them, reach out a kind hand and help guide them back to reality.

    If that is done, we may be surprised by how many join us in this fight against Elite Globalism, and for the restoration of the heart and soul of the American republican experiment. This is no longer just a battle between Democrat and Republican or Left versus Right. This is ultimately a battle between Authoritarianism and Libertarianism, between crushing Tyranny or enlightened Freedom. We must battle on those terms and those terms alone. Make clear the vital stakes involved and the terrible consequences if we fail.

    I am hopeful of the beautiful results if success can be had.

    Just my 10 cents (inflation ya know;-).

        Thanks, Irene.
        If anybody is interested, and to further illustrate my points, I’ve got two more videos to share.
        #1 – https://youtube.com/watch?v=jDlQ4H0Kdg8
        In this video a young white man with dreadlocks is accosted by a young black woman and accused of “Cultural Appropriation” because of his choice of hairstyle. Now, many of us may not like his style either, but I think ALL of us would agree he shouldn’t be treated in this way because of it. So, ask yourself if you feel this man, and many of the thousands like him who are treated this way and are sick and tired of the SJWs and their tactics might be open to joining the side of Liberty? I think he would, and millions of his peers would join him. All they need is the right invitation.

        #2 – https://youtu.be/DiA0P9iELAA
        This video features Dave Rubin interviewing Milo Yiannopoulis.
        These are two gay men having the best intellectual political conversation I’ve seen in ages. Milo was involved with #GamerGate and is a hero to many Millenials because of it. He too thinks that the younger generations can be our allies for “Daddy” Trump (an obviously trollish name he uses to antagonize the “Furhrer” & “Drumpf” tags).
        Trigger Warning😉 – Milo is a flaming queen, but he’s a genius on fighting in the new cultural battleground. In my estimation he’s the true inheritor to Andrew Breitbart. There is salty language and uncomfortable topics in this conversation, but I still think it is a must-see for Trump supporters. In the end, I think Milo has almost convinced Dave to seriously consider voting for Trump. THIS is what we need to win!

        Thanks to Sundance & Crew for this forum, sincerely.

          Both thumbs up on your post! I only learned of Milo in the past 2 months or so and am so glad I did. He totally trashed my own irrational belief that gay = progressive politics. I would have never thought that a gay white man would suddenly be the “enemy” of the Progs, but he points out that being 1) white and 2) a man trumps his gayness in their eyes. He enjoys both “white privilege” and “male paternalism” that the new breed of feminists are so irrationally hateful towards.

          Youtube has some excellent vids of his college campus speeches and Q&A sessions that he bills as “The Dangerous Faggot Tour” and shouldn’t be missed. For all their other faults, Breitbart has so far not controlled him or his topics. He is also an opponent to the concept of female compensation inequality basically saying “want to earn like a man? Then quit majoring in female dance interpretation and study engineering”.

          Rather than being offended by this flaming British queen, I find his humor, intelligence, strong assertiveness and acceptance of his sexuality to be refreshing in the normally dour world of us vs. them. He is a yuuuuuge Trump supporter.

    the ratings go through the roof, the books show # 1 on the best seller lists which generate more sales from public consumers and the cycle keeps building …

    Next comes the “call” for protests and eventually included are recruiting, hiring, organizing , transporting the violent protesters. The media has been notified far in advance of the agendas and activities.
