      Does this sound vaguely familiar:

      “All these newspapers used to have foreign bureaus,” he said. “Now they don’t. They call us to explain to them what’s happening in Moscow and Cairo. Most of the outlets are reporting on world events from Washington. The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old, and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That’s a sea change. They literally know nothing.”

      Rhodes set up a team of staffers who were focused on promoting the deal, which apparently included the feeding of talking points at useful times in the news cycle to foreign policy experts who were favorably disposed toward it. “We created an echo chamber,” he told the magazine. “They [the seemingly independent experts] were saying things that validated what we had given them to say.”

      Ben Rhodes, May 2016

        I am amazed that Russia has time to
        do anything else. What with all thier interference,
        hacking, social media postings, bots, spies
        and all the colluding. Those Russians
        are great multitaskers.

    I know I may sometimes come across as a Pollyanna regarding getting involved with the GOP and politics at a local level but I am realistic and know that it isn’t all roses or simple. However, we only loose when we give up.
    Good thread on getting involved from several perspectives

      Pollyanna or not, I appreciate the reminders and tips to get involved locally. Like so many others, I spend way too much time on these forums pontificating when I should be interacting eyeball-to-eyeball with our community members and Republican groups. Here in Utah my local Rep women’s group love Romney and just before the last election they were rooting for the equally despicable Mia Love! Yuck, I find it cringe-worthy to even think about going to the meetings. Bless you that you have so much more fortitude than I. Keep up the reminders, though, so I might finally feel so darn guilty I dive into that quagmire!.

        In this internet age it is tempting to be hyper informed. This ain’t a trivia game!😉

        We must all find the balance between knowledge/being informed and action/being involved. Both are important as are the actions of digging up info through original research and thus informing others accurately and passiong on info to help others be informed.

        But at what point are we over/hyper informed and under active/effective?

        Balance, intentional political activism and purposeful, disciplined time usage all are important for us to not just know about MAGA but to be part of helping MAGA happen!

        There is method in these accusations: they believe if they repeat the “incoherent” line enough times that they will be able to use the XXVth Amendment, which has already cycled around at least twice since President Trump’s Inauguration.

        I’m not on twitter, but none of the twitter messages repeated on CTH have been incoherent. But since we increasingly live in totally separate universes, those of us who see the sense in what President Trump has to say are not the target audience of the narrative-news media, who probably really do find him incoherent; they believe their own lies.

    Maureen Dowd, who did that interview or article with Pelosi the other day, has written another piece trying to talk down the Loony Brigade:

    I did not read the column nor will I, but I know what it is — more “sounding the alarm” over the Dem Civil War and telling the far left to stand down so that Trump isn’t helped for 2020.

    When Team Trump decided to elevate AOC’s “Squad” (AOC, Tlaib, Omar, Pressley) as their 2020 boogeymen, Team Trump knew what they were doing.

    The more AOC and her squad are the face of the Dems, the easier will be POTUS’ victory in 2020.

    So radicals, do not back down or be cowed. Fight! Don’t give in to the bad moderates! To arms!

    Love it.

  12. AG Barr just crowned every district judge in America king
    Daniel Horowitz · July 12, 2019

    Yet, in one fell swoop AG Barr has signaled to the Left and the legal profession that so long as they tie up any issue in several liberal courts, the administration will not assert separation of powers. We essentially have one branch of government.

      Read a sob story on a Portland news website about a woman who’s been here since she was 1 year old. In her late 20’s now. She was apprehended by ICE a couple days ago and being held in Tacoma.

      She lost her DACA status because she’s now had 2 DUII’s. Failed to show up for the latest hearing so issued warrant for her arrest. Didn’t show up for her immigration status hearing either.

      So we’re supposed to feel sorry for that? She’s lucky she didn’t kill anyone driving drunk.
      Now she’s separated from her kids? Sorry….not sorry.

      If she’s been in the USA for over 20 years why didn’t she just work towards citizenship?

      Send her back.

      Adam Schiff is a dink. And he looks like a thumb. But this (manufactured, if you’ll allow) overemotional kerfuffle around this planned ICE raid can be used to the Administration’s advantage.

      At the beginning of each calendar week, issue a public statement outlining “this week’s ICE raids”. Name the cities, the times, the number of targets, etc. Number of targets should be a high number. 10’s of thousand, at least.

      You can imagine the drama that will ensue… at first. Until they get used to it. Then they lower their guards eventually… gradually… slowly.

      Than BAM! You hit one city. Maybe two. Hard. REAL hard.

      Rinse, repeat. Every once in a while you’ll announce a Sunday raid, but you hit them on Friday. Or you announce a Saturday AND a Sunday raid. Enjoy your weekend, Mayor What’s-Your-Face from Oakland. Make sure y’all lock yourselves in your houses and apartments. Never know who’s gonna come ‘a knockin’.

      This will keep the MSM, the Talking Morons, and the Political Morons busy for days and weeks on end. It will consume them, day and night.

        So…around 7PM, the power went out for about 62K in a section of Manhattan.
        Many TV shows have been preempted and all news channels have cancelled their regular shows to try to make this into a major disaster. Many are trying to compare it to 911. Too bad for them, whenever they try to interview people on the street, no one is panicked, even enjoying the experience, many hanging out at local bars for blackout parties. By 10PM half of the power had been restored, another third of that several minutes ago and Con Ed is stating all power will be restored by midnight.
        As I type this, the guy on FOX News is still trying to dramatize the story as more and more lights come on behind him.

    Why is no one, including SD talking about the HOUSE immigration Bill for the CoC and big business, where they approved 300,000 visas for Indian workers. They paid McCarthy, Jordan, and others and these Republicans actually voted for this American job killing bill. Yet they do not vote on a comprehensive immigration reform bill. RIDICULOUS.

    Trump either vetoes this and insists on comprehensive immigration reform, or he says goodbye to my vote in 2020. We voted for Trump to get rid of the quid pro quo that Big Business exerts over our Congress via their legalized BRIBERY. I did not vote for the status quo. McConnell is in a pickle if he allows this to pass.

        We don’t have enough American engineers to fill the positions left behind by the engineers getting ready to retire.

        It’s just the way the numbers work right now.

        I know this because my husband is an engineer.

        Not enough Americans have majored in engineering over the last 20 years. It’s just a fact.

        Do you still want roads and bridges and factories? Someone needs to fill the void.

        I admit that H1B visas have been abused by companies such as Disney. But we need more engineers.

      I totally agree on these visa bills (incl. Rand Paul’s Senate version) and we have a right to be angry with the Republicans if either pass both houses and go to the President’s desk. And I will be angry with the President if he signs it, even if they have veto-proof majorities. But I hope the President can use this opportunity to say “no way!” until I get the legislation needed to fix the border situation, THEN we can talk about what you want. Last year he signed a bill that basically doubled the visas so now Congress feels they can push him again (and perhaps again and again).

      BTW, it’s unfortunate that Sundance is not covering this crucial topic. But write the President and sign the petition.

      And even if he does sign these bills, I will still vote for him as the best option but know the fast-track to citizenship in these bills dooms us demographically as we are being rapidly replaced with those who largely do not reflect traditional American values. It will just be a bit slower with PTrump ***IF*** he does not, or cannot, hold Congress’ feet to the fire.

    • Call your senator, try to prevent it passing in the Senate. It has only passed the House so far, although by a frightening amount (pretty sure veto-proof, meaning it wouldn’t matter if President Trump did veto it).

      Seriously, we ALL need to act. One man alone may make things worse, but one man alone cannot save this country.

      My congressman literally changed his stance based in large part on calls from home district.

      Let them know how you feel about this bill and get the word out to your local network of fellow conservative voters and MAGA supporters that you have made via being locally involved in the GOP and volunteering for campaigns.

      When you act together minds and votes in DC can be changed.
