    When is Trump going to attack our public school indoctrination system, as promised he would do in 2016? All talk of it is gone and it’s disappeared from his rallies. It’s getting beyond desperate out here in the public schools.

      When trying to douse a gasoline fire you must start at the source and work your way backwards. Similarly, our US public school system is the spigot for progressives. Liberal clones continue to be manufactured here.

        My well educated son told me that the economy is due to Obama and one of his degrees is in economics so he should know – according to him. I don’t have a degree in economics so difficult to argue with him but this is a serious person who believes this but it makes zero sense to me that the guy who said “those jobs are never coming back” is responsible for those jobs coming back.

          As a person who grew up poor and got a degree in econ and spent some time in investment banking, I know that the economy under O’bama was as close to dead as you could get. People who were lucky enough to have a job were doing more and more with each passing week. Everyone knew O’bama didn’t care at all about the working class.

          You might remind him that most of the employment gains under him were part time jobs due to the rules of Obamacare and it forced people to have several jobs. In truth, Obama screwed up everything he touched.f

      Unfortunately, POTUS with DeVos appears content to take the Republican management class platform of vouchers and privatization as the solution, leaving working and middle class kids stuck in these indoctrination centers until they fail badly enough to precipitate the elimination of the DOE altogether. Basically, Obama’s approach to getting rid of the USPS.
      Piss poor government from people who all have the $$$ to send their kids to private school, so why should they care?

      Attacking the teacher’s unions may help in blue states. They already have considerably less power in red states. The real failure is the crackpot educational theory and consultant racket that’s coming out of the monolithically Left colleges of education at universities. Until universities are forced, like big tech, to allow diversity of thought and opinion among students and faculty, they will keep forcing their liberal theories into local schools. Citizens also need to be awakened to the carrier of this virus, the consulting/educational products racket that I suspect is fostered by kickbacks to superintendents and school boards and central office administration. Rant off. I’m an ex-teacher and my wife is a current ine.

      • I agree with your thoughtful but angry comments, Free. “No Child Left Behind™” was and still is a disastrous travesty of education theory which has prompted businesses (such as Chili’s and Starbucks) to remove words from their signage to benefit illterate school graduates who only learned how to cheat standardized tests and to know that their teachers would help them do it. We turned against generations of experience that showed us how to build schools that worked, in favor of crackpot theories that have utterly failed, and yet we cling to them because – once again – “there is money in it.”

          Speaking of crackpot theories in education…the no-zero policy

          “A small but growing number of school districts have implemented new grading systems that ban grades of less than 50% – the so-called “no-zero” policy. It usually works like this:

          If a student has completed an assignment – no matter how late or poorly done – he has shown a “good faith” effort, and therefore deserves somewhere between a zero and 49.”

          http://neatoday.org/2016/08/04/no-zero-policy-pro-con/

          Lets send a copy of this article to all businesses and employers across the United States and see if they want employees who can turn in their work whenever they want, not show up on time, not meet deadlines, have no work ethic and behave in any manner they choose.

            This drives my wife NUTS. The talking heads in administration speak platitudes about ‘accountability’ and ‘promoting excellence’ while at the same time micromanaging classroom teachers with crap like above that directly undermines accountability and excellence. A lot of school administrators are content to grade inflate because they don’t want griping parents calling board members. It’s gotten pathetic. These parents just want their kids to be given an A, not actually prepared to succeed.

          • Exactly. In the real world, the distinct possibility exists that: You(!) Flunked!” You aren’t doing anyone any good by teaching them that they can be rewarded for doing nothing. It used to be that, if you didn’t pass third grade, you repeated that grade the next year until you did. This is how the real world really works, and we’re actually doing our children a terrible disservice by acting as though it does not. You are personally responsible for what happens to You.”

            I think that teachers should “bend over backwards” to help a student, for example, identify(!) and then compensate any learning disabilities that they might have. (My mother, a schoolteacher, once carefully took a student aside and asked her privately, ‘do the letters sometimes appear to turn upside-down or backwards when you look at them?’ The child burst into tears as she said, ‘yes.’ It was the first moment that the child realized not only that she had an identifiable problem that was not unique to her, but that there were ways to compensate. Her education turned-around from that moment forward.)

            But … personal responsibility must remain, because that’s how the world works. Whether learning [a particular subject] is easy or hard for you, it is a challenge that you must accept and a goal that you must achieve – be willing to accept and to achieve.

            • P.S.: I forgot to mention that my mother gave this child an audio tape on the subject of “dyslexia,” and set aside a private time for her to listen to it, taking care that no one else in the classroom was ever aware. The child listened to it several times, and after that “there was a gleam of hope on her face.” She had grown up with this problem and had kept it hidden the entire time, because she didn’t know. When she discovered that her condition was not only “not unique to her,” but that it had a name, that’s what turned the corner in her life. Yeah, my mom really enjoyed her career.

        My wife, too, is a former teacher and she would disagree with you, as do I. I think you’re addressing the problem too far down the line. The problem comes far before the college level. The problem comes in the homes of our children. Parents are responsible for a child’s education, the schools just supplement that.

        I’m a baby boomer and when I was growing up my parents made sure I was being taught the correct and needed things by the public schools that I attended. They taught us kids lots of things that went further than the schools and, often, challenged what the schools were teaching.

        I grew up in one of the most progressive liberal school systems in the nation and yet was raised with solid, strict conservative understanding of history and civics. Even in junior and senior high school I challenged the teaching when it was wrong because I had been taught the whole truth by my parents. I was taught to challenge respectfully and never backed off. I upset many teachers and administrators, but my parents stood behind me and I didn’t back off. Often the teachers and administrators would back down and admit I was correct or at least that I had a right to my opinion. I was never shut down because of how I was taught to critically think and express and argument with respect to authority. Those lessons by my parents have continued to carry me throughout life with great success.

        Too many parents expect the schools to educate their kids. My father had a job that had him gone on business trips every week from Monday through Friday and he still took the time on weekends to make sure us kids were getting the right education. My mother supplemented that throughout the week as she stayed home with us kids and also worked at a job to help support the family. If my father would have been able to be home during the week I’m sure he would have run for the school board, but that wasn’t possible. Even though we were in an extremely progressive liberal school system, the work my parents did assured that we got the education we needed.

        Education of a child is the parent’s responsibility, not the community’s or the government’s. Parents can run for the school board and help direct where things go, which is a great idea. But the bottom line is that if parents had been doing their job all these years (including voting the right people into power in their communities),the education system in this country would not be in the mess it’s in.

          An issue with this point of view too is you can take all the personal responsibility for yourself and your children you want. And you can disdain and criticize the way the majority of parents are raising their kids. Much of that’s deserved. But you can’t change how those people are living and you can’t go off onto a mountainside and live life the way you want to, and figure, “Hey, I’m doing it right. Everybody else has the problem.” Because one day, those parents who are just going along with the Left educational establishment will raise children who will vote in Demosocialists. Great, you’re kids were raised right. And they’ll be outnumbered.

          The Left needs to be confronted in their seats of power in education. It’s not good enough to say, “Well, let’s just privatize and let the free market take care of it.” Who do you think backed common core and removed most of our traditional American literature for non-fiction texts? Bill Gates. There’s your free market at work. The Left’s monopolies have to be broken up. So far a big goose egg from Barr on confronting any of this.

          My children are taught to back off when confronting nonsense.

          The “teachers” usually do not know what they are saying. They are not civics majors. They are not scientists. They got a TEACHING degree.

          They are probably cult members in the SJW Virtue Cult. They usually do not talk common sense, and they cannot have a back-and-forth discussion.

          The only thing a kid can do is: note objections and expose the concept that there are other views for the benefit of other kids around; shake up the dogmatic virtue cult members so they are less dogmatic; create space for others to voice questions and disagreements.

          I have already taught my kids that one goal of the school system is to cause a separation between the kid and the parent, so the government can be in charge and not the parent.

The ONLY bright spot I see in education today are the handful of charter schools that are Classical ed schools and also homeschooling. Everything else is the same crappy curriculum. Betsy Devos has been a placeholder. Hopefully after POTUS Trump is re-elected in 2020 we can get down to business with someone else.

They can join other families for outings and even different classes. For some families it will be better than two parents working and paying child care. We get the kids out of indoctrination and they no longer have to fear for their safety. It is a win/win.

            So much of what we are seeing and dealing with now, IS the result of the ‘boil the frog slowly’ creep of Conmunism, the deceptive Uniparty con (creating the ILLUSION of a two party system) and yes, WE, THE PEOPLE failing, collectively in our obligations as citisens.

            Just as many abrogated their responsiblility to parent, including being actively involved in their childs education, in a MAJOR role, many most turn over primary role of their healthcare to Doctors, rather than taking the primary role and responsibility for their healthcare, themselves.

            My grandfather had a 6th grade education. But he could set a broken bone, birth a calf or baby, and had a better understanding of anatomy and physiology than most College grads.

            So much has been lost, so much ground to make up. And yes, No child left behind, followed by race to the top, are some of the things that have caused me to realise the Bushes were every bit as bad for our Country as the Clintons.

            So many things we let slide,….so much ground to make up.

            For instance, many are NOW outraged, because they are openly advocating for post partum abortions. Many who did Not express outrage as first trimester abortions, gradually morphed into second, and then third.

            A much smaller group protested, and predicted this was where it was all heading. But, so may wanted to go along to get along, or itvwasn’t enough of a priority to actually DO anything.
            And, here we are. There IS actually a debate in the pro abortion lobby.

            They are agreed on post partum abortion; in THAT they are united.
            The argument is on the time, AFTER the child is born, when the mother can still instruct the Dr to kill the child.

            Some say a week, some a month, and some up to 1 year. After all, its the womans right to choose, remember?
            It can drastically alter her life, so it should be a decision between the mother and her Dr.

        This is the main issue in the education debate! Little kids need to be read to, and, as they understand that the letters are grouped as they are to form words, the words you are reading need to be pointed at as they are being read.

        Is the above being subverted? Only if the child’s caregiver puts an electronic device into a young child’s hand instead of a book, OR if they take an innocent mind into one of these library story hours that has more to do with the ‘reader’ than the reading . . .

      I suggest people research / look at the apprenticeship programs which are springing up all over the country. The programs cover technology and trades. Many are an “earn while you learn’ proposition and often end in the awarding of associate degrees in useful disciplines, as well as full-time employment. One other tidbit – graduates usually have ZERO student loan debt.

      The federal apprenticeship program was launched in 2017. A massive report was issued in May 2018 by the departments of Labor, Commerce and Education. It strikes at the heart of progressive collegiate academic rackets, which create indentured servants to the US government rather than useful employees for businesses.

      People can be forgiven for knowing little or nothing about apprenticeships. It’s not like the corporate media whores (whose college training is arguably 100% worthless) would bother reporting something positive about the Trump administration.

      The only way this gets fixed is with the parents. You cannot expect the president to create some kind of ideology test for teachers. But parents can. Pull your kid or revolt at the local level. Start suing schools for suspending students for holding up a political banner, freedom of speech. It isn’t up to the President, get your rear off the chair and run for school board if it bothers you so much.

      Best ROI is create the jobs, and rebuild effective trade programs that enable workers to make a good living — and the ineffectgive school systems and universities will start drying up. Eliminate the training of foriegn people where they can take trade secrets back to their countries and become parasites of the USA economy, sans the insane regulations our businesses face.

It is very difficult to know what the overall year plan is, and what the major topics or content are within the plan, and then to know week by week, day by day, and then to know what assignments are given.

      If I knew in advance, I could cover half the stuff on a first pass in the summer, at our leisure, and make sure my kids get it right.

      Also: parents are adversarial to school, not supportive, or are indifferent. Teachers can guess who the good parents are, from the first few days. Teachers get discouraged by the absent, unconcerned parenting style and the style of being adversarial with school to protect their little child’s feeling from getting hurt.

      A major problem is that kids MUST be in school. So, the 2/3 that are ready to learn are thoroughly disrupted by the one kid with all kinda social problems. Thoroughly. This bothers me so much that I have a new idea: Your Kid Can Be Bounced Out Indefinitely. Make a path to get back in, via some alternative school. Also, Part B: We switch to ONLY requiring K-8, BUT make K-8 great. You SHOULD be able to do math and to read by the end of 8th.

      IF you are doing OK, you can OPT to get 9-12. Maybe have huge vocational centers for those who prefer this or are not academic otherwise.

      But playing a charade that a HS degree holder can read and write is a joke, and a time waster, and money waster.

      Parents: the govt will give your kid K-8. After that, it is on YOU to have your kid show their chops. No reason to babysit teenagers. Along with all of this, make some GED type adult deal widely available once the goofballs wise up. Free. Better to spend the money on more mature responsible adults than kids who are not interested, or who fail to have the family support to actually do anything but disrupt a good thing for everyone else.

      Whoever you are: minority, low income, immigrant, spoiled rich kid, etc.: we ONLY have 9-12 for those who VALUE it. If any of these groups wants some fabled great American experience, they can make up their minds and go get it. It will be right here, WAITING for them, but not forced on unwilling participants.

      Cancel the student loan program as it is. Make loans available per potential future earnings. Teaching degrees have a very sure future, so they could get stu loans. Oh- to get past sophomore year, the teaching-degree students MUST pass a reading and writing test. Maybe give them the GED test.

      But the no-college -loans idea would get rid of the vast numbers of people in college having no idea what they want to study, forming an unaware mass to be shepharded through SJW indoctrination. This subsidy of directionless young adults creates the demand for thee courses, and the Reds are ready to step in and teach them.

    Now on to the PRC.

    On Monday, all PRC papers published a speech made by Xi Jinping to a Party meeting in 2014. The speech was a roadmap on the Party’s correct path, but warned that they faced enemies within and without to establishing the China dream. The ultimate collapse of capitalism and the victory of communism with ‘Chinese Characteristics’.

    Why now?

    There are two interpretations, diametrically opposed for this rather massive propaganda effort. One is that to remind cadres that they must redouble efforts to support the Party/State of which he is the sole arbiter of success. And to show his prescience in knowing that China would face international and domestic difficulties.

    The other is that his position is insecure against the growing backlash to his policies, from the militarisation of the SCS, money bleeding out to support the BRI, pushback on Huawei and the ‘made in China policy 2025, Xinjiang suppression, Hong Kong resistance, failed economic policies such as the housing crisis, banking failures, porkgate, and flight of companies and supply chains to the rest of Asia or the US and the increasing pressure points of the trade war that is not a trade war.

    Of course you were not paying attention, why would you with all the salacious stuff of US politics grabbing your eyeballs as the next election is gearing up. However some of us have to pay attention.

    Perhaps the Chairman of Everything may have a rethink about his chairman for life gambit.

    I will put on my Carnac the Magnificent Hat ( Hat-tip to the much missed Johnny Carson), put the envelope against my brow. And answer the unknown question.( insert laugh track).

    Answer :Hong Kong

    Question: why did Mr Pillsbury go to China?

    I surmise, as the so-called ‘unofficial emissary’ he is going to the PRC to sound out the comrades on whether they are willing to back down on Hong Kong, allow Traitor Lam to concede to the five demands and ultimately to restore an important international lifeline to the regime that needs foreign exchange, protects the wealth of the Party elites, gets business back to normal ( Moody’s has downgraded HK to negative and most of that hits PRC businesses globally) and so on and so forth.

    As for leverage to the discussions, the bi-partisan Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act that will no doubt be passed in Congress, both aisles. The act allows for individuals who have violated Human rights to be sanctioned by the US. Most of those targets are big bosses in PRC.

    As I see it, it presents them with a win win situation before their big Commie celebrations on 1 October.

      SOME of us are very much paying attention, (BKR, Ghost and others) and in fact SOME of us maintain thecWHOLE REASON for this salascious political resistance to “Trump” is BECAUSE of what he is doing with trade and specifically CHINA.

      AND, we very much appreciate your reports and insights, and yes, your “ode to Carnac” predictions.

      I have maintained that IF they take this Gambit, of having Lam accede to the protesters demands, its over. It may take time to “play out”, but once a brutal dictatorship fails to ruthlessly tamp down dissent, theyvlose their credibilty AS a brutal dictatorship.

      They rule by intimidation, not the consent of the governed. So, just as the USSR’s responce to the velvet revolution presaged the collapse of the USSR, conceding to the HK protesters would be the beginning of the end.

      HOW can they continue to insist on a “One China policy” after this? “Well, there is still ONE CHINA, its just that,…well because we need HK banking, its one china for HK, and a DIFFERENT one for everybody else!”

      LOL, Lots of luck with selling that, Xi.
      What happens when people on the mainland, begin to protest, openly critisising Xi and CCP policies?

      Do they crack down hard, again hilighting their hypocrisy, or do they again concede? Once they start conceding, its a slippery slope for dictators, with an inevitable outcome; driven from power.

      So, do you see the PRC Comrades as agreeing to the proposal, and if so dobyou agree with my assesment of the ultimate outcome?

      Put another way, do you think they can make these concessions to the HK protesters, and still retain power long term?

      And yeah, Xi; “Emperor for LIFE? WHAT was I thinking? I just signed my own death sentence! New rule, NEVER sign ANYTHING when I’ve been drinking!” LOL!

    FTA “An organization that leads the protest movement against President Trump’s judicial nominees and presents itself as grassroots is really the project of Arabella Advisors, a largely unknown, massively funded strategy company pushing the interests of wealthy leftist donors….As previously reported here, the Arabella firm manages four nonprofits: the New Venture Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, Windward Fund, and Hopewell Fund. These nonprofit entities play host to hundreds of groups and projects that promote interests and political movements strategically deployed in a long-term campaign to nudge the country to the left….A central component of Arabella’s activism is opposition to Trump’s conservative judicial nominees. One Arabella-tied organization calling itself Demand Justice quickly thrust itself into the center of opposition to Trump’s Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh. The Capital Research Center has explained that Demand Justice is actually a project of Arabella’s Sixteen Thirty Fund….Arabella’s nonprofits, meanwhile, raised a combined $1.6 billion from 2013-2017 with the aim of advancing “the political policies desired by wealthy left-wing interests through hundreds of ‘front’ groups,” according to the report. “And those interests pay well: the network’s revenues grew by an incredible 392 percent over that same period.””

    I’ve never heard of this group. It seems to me the left has an enormous number of non profits aimed at destroying this country as founded. Add to this group all the non profits supported by Soros, the non profits associated with obama and billions are being spent by leftists. I can’t really name any conservative non profits that spend money like this supporting Republicans or conservatives. These political non profits not associated with any political candidate need to be done away with and no longer get the tax breaks that religious and healthcare non profits get. Where are all these billions coming from?

Order them to stop refining that “messy” gasoline and Diesel fuel.

        Within 48 hours or so, there won’t be any traffic problems on the LA freeways. And we won’t be hearing anything more on social media from these people because their laptops and phones will have run out of power. “Problem solved.”

It’s even easy to print a “WPA-style poster.” Much, much harder to actually address those problems. We have in this country a carefully-developed electrical power grid which delivers power with 98% reliability everywhere “from sea to shining sea,” and our lives literally depend on it. It is “simply, useless” to talk in the way that these people do.

    DOJ Sued For Docs On FBI/CIA Informant Who Spearheaded Trump Tower Moscow Scheme
    16 Sep 2019

    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/doj-sued-docs-fbicia-informant-who-spearheaded-trump-tower-moscow-idea

    A Freedom of Information (FOIA) lawsuit filed on Monday by Judicial Watch against the Department of Justice seeks all records of communications regarding Felix Sater – a former Trump organization official known to US intelligence as “The Quarterback,” who was recently confirmed to be an informant for both the FBI and CIA.

    Sater went from a “Wall Street wunderkind” working at Bear Stearns and Lehman Brothers, to getting barred from the securities industry over a barroom brawl which led to a year in prison, to facilitating a $40 million pump-and-dump stock scheme for the New York mafia, to working telecom deals in Russia – where the FBI and CIA tapped him in the late 1990s as an undercover intelligence asset who was told by his handler “I want you to understand: If you’re caught, the USA is going to disavow you and, at best, you get a bullet in the head”…

    Judicial Watch notes that “The Mueller report mentions Sater more than 100 times but fails to mention that he was an active undercover informant for the FBI/CIA for more than two decades. In 2017, Sater was the subject of two interviews conducted under a proffer agreement with Mueller’s office according to page 69, footnote 304 of Mueller’s report on his Russian collusion investigation.”

    As such, their lawsuit seeks all communications with Sater – including the FBI’s 302 interview reports and offer agreements between Mueller and Sater.

    A Sater Setup?

    Interestingly, Judicial Watch chief investigative reporter Micah Morrison noted in June that “Beginning in late 2015, Sater repeatedly tried to arrange for [Trump attorney Michael] Cohen and candidate Trump, as representatives of the Trump Organization, to travel to Russia to meet with Russian government officials and possible financing partners.”

The British were coming was a phrase from the start of the American Revolution in 1775, but the Second Amendment wasn’t written until 1789, 6 years after the Revolution ended. People may think my point is minor, but the left will look for any reason to claim what we say is false and we should be careful about that.

      The British agreed to a peace in 1783 but did really think of us as an independent nation until the peace of 1815. Look at how they treated us on the high seas, how they treated sailors etc. Tensions eased after 1783, yes, but were still high in 1787/1789 and they did indeed come back for us just 25 yrs post the initial Constitution (1787) and 23 yrs post the actual 2A (1789).

      However, I think you are correct in that the US citizens at the time insisted on the 10A/Bill of Rights as protection against the fed gov they were allowing to be born, allowing to be put in place over them – they were agreeing to it with specific conditions and other unspoken conditions that were powers left to the States so that the Fed gov would never overrule the States and the States would not become simple, regional divisions of the country under the full control of a central, all powerful fed gov.

      It was from the memory of the way we won when the British were coming and, in party, motivated that the British or any other force could come in the future to rule imperiously over the government of the states and of the people.

    • I personally think that these women shamelessly made a travesty of the actual, very real issue of sexual abuse, by shamelessly trying to twist it for obvious political purposes. They “opportunistically” claimed to come forward with unverifiable and, as it turns out, inconsistent claims of incidents that supposedly had happened in their youth … just to use those claims as a weapon. Meanwhile, both men and women face “the real crime” every day.

    Top Canadian Mountie Cameron Ortis arrested for information security violations involving five eyes. Bill Browder of Magnitsky Act fame jumping out to disclose two meetings with Ortis in 2017, supposedly looking into Russian money laundering, suggesting those efforts might have been “compromised.”

    Who the H*** is Bill Browder to be accessing Five Eyes for “money laundering” investigations?

    I don’t tweet but awhile back PapaD mentioned he was going to retrieve the money he was given and left in Italy and turn it over to the FIB so they could trace it.

    Could somebody ask him via twitter if this ever happened?

    That story seems to have totally died.

    • Oh, I daresay that “Pappa” is much too smart to do that. If that money’s still in his foreign lawyer’s office, he can simply give them a photograph of a few of the bills. He’s got tangible, irrefutable evidence of a very clumsy attempt to frame him. Why should he give that smoking-gun up?

        The FBI could then put that money in the same top secret bin as Weiner’s laptop, the video coverage from Epstein’s cell, the disk with Clinton’s emails, the location of Jimmy Hoffa’s body, and the identity of the shooter at the grassy knoll.

      You are right in NOT physically giving all the money back but how about a bill or two.

      The point is we want to see if they are actually investigating the obvious and running the serial numbers is just common sense in any criminal investigation.

      The point is, are they following seeking the truth sense or sweeper sense?

      PapaD’s answer would tell a lot IMO.

    The only way to change the media and effectiveness of SJW on corporations is for conservatives to have a seat at the table.
    Money talks. I don’t have a lot of money to invest, but I would invest what I could in a conservative investment group that would purchase stocks in these corporations with the purpose of making conservative’s positions heard. There are many of us, and I think getting a large group of every day conservatives pool their money together to buy shares in these corporations so we have a voice in their actions is the only way they will change from their leftist ways. They are so interested in diversity, let’s try diversity of thought.

    Is there such an investment group? If not, we need one ASAP.

      Interesting idea, Dixie. It’s just that conservatives tend to be honest, and true to their fiduciary duties. To get a board seat on a major media corporation would take very large pools of money, 100s of millions per seat, which would require raising money from wealthy investors. Investments are to make money, not to advocate politically. Once you mix up what you’re trying to accomplish, you become confused, and given to dissembling, trying to appear to be doing one thing, while doing another, like Socialists.

      Besides, the Big Lie people don’t operate according to the rules. It just takes a few people who are dedicated cadre to steer a much larger enterprise. “Big Lie” Baquet at the NYTimes, for example.

      Yes, money talks, and the SJW left has a 30 year head start on using Alinsky-ite tactics to shame, pressure, and boycott. It’s time we started hitting them where it hurts, turn the Alinsky-ite SJW tactics against them: shame and boycott these leftist corporations.

      Stage protests at Nike flagship stores, with big posters of the enslaved Chinese children used to make Nike goods – launch a nationwide boycott – and go from there. Any company donating to Planned Parenthood should get called out. Any company helping dissolve the 2nd amendment, same thing. We’ve got some catching up to do, but conservatives are quick learners.

      Thanks for posting. This is disturbing and everyone should be on the look out for it. If the trend continues, it’s important for people be aware of it. And I hope someone is able to trace it back.

      It looks like a coordinated attack by someone (e.g. Antifa) to “tag” the Twitter feeds of pro-MAGA patriots with key words tied to violence, terrorism, “hate,” etc. Just guessing, but I can think of many reasons they’d do it, from general harassment to triggering mass suspensions of those Twitter accounts for hate speech/violence.
