the democrats are demonstrating their see through propaganda creation strategy that would be good to study in a classroom to show how despotic regimes take over a country.


First conjure a theoretical scenario, probability unimportant.


Then contact your official propaganda machine, can't do this without a mainstream propaganda machine.


Now you can project outcomes to fit your narrative. Take the best negative version and run with that as if it were reality.


Again, dems hate and fear mongering strategy is nothing without an official media propaganda machine.


Because Trump had oatmeal for breakfast.........what are the ramifications of the US invading Palestine and torturing Abbas?

The only hit-job being staged is by the coordinated messaging campaign between right-wing media and the rank-and-file Republican members of Congress that has one end-goal: fire Bob Mueller.

This is corrupt right-wing partisan hackery, and believe me the people will not stand for this. We will not let you kill this investigation and/or replace the investigator with a right-wing stooge who won't do actually do the job.

You have not a shred of support for this supposed "plot" by Andrew McCabe. Not one legitimate shred.

I'm not positive but I can't help but think at their core, they know they're lying.

I suspect so.

At least the leaders do.

Trump knows Obama didn't wiretap him, there weren't three million illegal votes, there indeed had been communication with the Russians, ...

Hold your horses there, I'm not cosigning this.

I think what's happening here is very simple. I don't think necessarily that Trump colluded with Russia, and ultimately I doubt there will be any sort of indictments on that front.

However, I do believe Trump supporters know at their core (or at least suspect) that there's something dirty to be unearthed in Trump's finances. The truth is they don't care if Trump laundered money for Russian oligarchs, and they'd rather it not be found if that's indeed the case. They don't want Mueller digging into Trump's finances, so they want to kill this investigation before it gets there.

Anyone who has kept up is probably aware that Trump is afloat via Russian financing, some of which which likely laundered, ill-gotten gains.

Suspicious donations from Russian types to various GOP coffers. Probably would just as soon that not get a public airing.

Of course GOP types don't want Mueller to follow the money. It puts them all in a bad light.

fox news is having a tizzy-fit today claiming mueller's obtaining the PTT emails was illegal:

Gregg Jarrett: Mueller's Allegedly Lawless Acts Have Corrupted His Probe and Demand His Removal - Fox Nation

they fail to mention that the GSA has specifically pointed out that it wasn't illegal and they're specifically required to turn over emails to law enforcement investigations.
