        Thank you for posting these links. “Liked” because of the link being posted, definitely don’t like that members of Congress take it upon themselves to eject other members of Congress. Surely that’s illegal even by their own standards?

        Would a constituent of Gaetz have standing to sue for not allowing their elected voice to be present during the business of the Congress, including committees and sub-committees to which their elected representative has membership?

          It is already posted on CNN.com

          CNN breathlessly reported that Representative Gaetz violated Pelosi’s House of Representative Rules and House Intel Committee Rules set by Schiff, which limit attendance at his hearings to members of his committee and staff, only.

          So much for representatives representing their constituents. CNN even admitted he was there just to observe.

          Also interesting that unelected staff members of congressional members and the committee can sit in on the hearings as well.

Like Pandora’s Box, their actions are now a permanent part of our culture.

      Taibbi does attack the President in this piece but he raises good points and lines of argument that should help influence discussions with fence sitters. The first comment and its replies at the end was also worth a read for insight on how these fence sitters are taking in this whole coup attempt. What is missing from the outline of events Taibbi provides are the details that we know of thanks to Sundance that exonerate the President and condemn the plotters. Nevertheless, it’s a good starting point for reasoned conversation with those ‘the other side’ who aren’t feeling well about the impeachment circus.

        Taibbi’s a subversive little twerp from the nose-holding upper class echelons of society where his father, NBC’s Mike Taibbi, gave rise to the little brat.

        He doesn’t know diddly about President Trump but he sure knew enough about his commie messiah Obama to keep his articles to himself during his 8-year reign.

        So Taibbi calls it a ‘coup’ and we gasp. Gimme a break. He’s nowhere close to having a real conversation with a deplorable–he’s all in for any which way to get rid of Trump.

        Mixing an obvious truth with Aesopian deception to pile on Trump is worse than Trump-haters with their decapitated head of our President.

      AGREED. The media is in a frenzy to make Trump look derelict for not putting U.S. troops in harm’s way. Like he should directing our special forces to be firing upon Turkey — A MEMBER OF NATO.

      They’ve really gone all-in. Like he has somehow handed the keys of Syria over to Russia and ISIS at the same time, if that is even conceivable. Hint: IT ISN’T.
      The Kurds and Assad/Russia have been jointly patrolling the Euphrates and numerous border checkpoints since 2018. And rolling back ISIS with airstrikes just as much as the West. If pulling the U.S. out isn’t right, when the hell will it be?

        Just to add some more depth to your great comment. The Russians have been propping up the Assad Family with weapons, troops and money since the 1950’s, in return for use of Bases in Syria, especially at Latakia. The even flew CAP over parts of Syria in the 1967 and 1973 Arab-Israeli Wars.

    Insider Confirms CIA Controls CNN

    Our insider says the CIA are mainly talking to Jake Tapper and Wolf Blitzer and Jeff Zucker. Our source says the CIA tells them what to say, and everyone is “so mad at this Vault 7 Assange person.”

    Our CNN insider had been out of touch with us for several days. We were starting to wonder what was going on, but in our latest communication, our CNN insider did confirm our biggest fears. The CIA is indeed attempting, with all their might, to control the message to the masses!

    They are embedded with all of the mainstream media – CNN, NBC, Huffington Post, New York Times, Washington Post, probably Fox, as well.

    Why The Federal Government Can Now Use Propaganda On Americans
    By KrisAnne Hall, JD

    Richard Stengel, former head of the office for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs at the Obama’s State Department from 2013 to 2016, former editor of Time Magazine, and a regular pundit on MSNBC, said in April of 2018, at a Council on Foreign Relations forum about “fake news,” that he supports the use of propaganda on American citizens. He then continued and said;

    “Basically, every country creates their own narrative story and, you know, my old job at the State Department was what people used to joke as the ‘chief propagandist’ job.”

    Keep in mind, that in 2013 Congress passed legislation allowing the federal government to fund and create propaganda they knew could be used to manipulate Americans on American soil. This legislation was called The Smith-Mundt Modernization Act, sponsored by Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX), that failed in 2011 when it was submitted on its own. But in 2013 Thornberry and his co-sponsors buried this legislation in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2014, where it surreptitiously was passed.
