The only way to get some truth about Obama. Because the mainstream press didn’t and won’t hold the former president accountable for his failure. He paved the way for Trump to sneak his way into the White House. Obama was a disaster as president. He should be exposed for that failure:
The former President used the party structure as a ‘host’ for his 2012 campaign for a second term then treated it like a ‘husk’ to be discarded with $2.4million in debt.
Obama’s aloof demeanor and professorial detachment masked the reality that he was full of ‘self-assured self-regard.’
He oversaw the ‘pilfering of talent, money, resources, and purpose’ away from the Democratic National Committee to his own reelection team.
After eight years under Obama, the Democrats suffered a net loss of 947 state legislative seats, 63 House seats, 11 senators, and 13 governors – but Obama refused to take the blame.
A plan to rapidly reopen schools in Texas may have contributed to thousands of COVID-19 cases and hundreds of deaths, according to an analysis by economists and public policy experts from the University of Kentucky.
The analysis, which has not yet been peer reviewed, used a statistical model to estimate that roughly 43,000 people contracted COVID-19 and 800 people possibly died in Texas two months after schools reopened statewide, when virus transmission already was high.
Occasionally the mainstream press does it’s job and pursues the truth:
CBS host John Dickerson on Sunday pressed Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about his motivations for using disproportional force to kill Palestinian people, including civilians and children.
“You are under investigation for bribery, fraud, breach of trust,” Dickerson noted. “You’ve also had some difficult — four failed attempts to put together a government in the last 23 months. This leads to the criticism that your current actions are basically an effort to stay in power.”
Much of the QAnon conspiracy, anti-masker movement can be attributed to foreign disinformation posted online. This expose points to that fact:
A sprawling online network tied to Chinese businessman Guo Wengui has become a potent platform for disinformation in the United States, attacking the safety of coronavirus vaccines, promoting false election-fraud claims and spreading baseless QAnon conspiracies, according to research published Monday by the network analysis company Graphika.
The report, provided in advance to The Washington Post, details a network that Graphika says amplifies the views of Guo, a Chinese real estate developer whose association with former Trump White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon became a focus of news coverage last year after Bannon was arrested aboard Guo’s yacht on federal fraud charges.
Graphika said the network includes media websites such as GTV, for which Guo last year publicly said he was raising funds, along with thousands of social media accounts that Graphika said amplify content in a coordinated fashion. The network also includes more than a dozen local-action groups over which Guo has publicly claimed an oversight role, Graphika found.
Truth telling. He is obviously inspired by Liz Cheney. And you don’t have to like either one of them to support their voices in helping to destroy the current Republican Party leadership. That’s a good thing. Dividing the GOP is good for America:
Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) called the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol an “insurrection against the Constitution” as some GOP lawmakers sought to minimize the violence this week.
The comment came as several Republicans, including Reps. Andrew Clyde (Ga.), Jody Hice Norman (Ga.) and Paul Gosar (Ariz.), downplayed or made false claims about the attack.
…“I was there,” Romney said. “What happened was a violent effort to interfere with and prevent the constitutional order of installing a new president.”
“As such, it was an insurrection against the Constitution that resulted in severe property damage, severe injuries and death,” he continued.
I think Gaetz is in a whole heap of trouble. And his mentor and leader can’t help him. No one can help him:
“When Rep. Matt Gaetz attended a 2019 GOP fundraiser in Orlando, his date that night was someone he knew well: a paid escort and amateur Instagram model who led a cocaine-fueled party after the event, according to two witnesses. The Florida congressman’s one-time wingman, Joel Greenberg, will identify that escort to investigators as one of more than 15 young women Gaetz paid for sex, according to a source familiar with the investigation,” The Beast reported.
Stefanisk has become a powerful figure by selling her soul. She has morphed into a shameless Trump loyalist. Because if you want to get ahead within the Republican party you must show a total lack of scruples:
This marks the triumph of Trump-uber-alles fealty within GOP circles. A heretic is being excommunicated and replaced by a loyalist. It’s been noted that Stefanik entered the House as a moderate and now is being anointed as a top Trumper who has fully supported Trump’s Big Lie that the election was rigged against him. But Stefanik’s Trumpification stands out because only a few years ago—well into Trump’s presidency—she was speaking critically about him on key fronts. In fact, at times Stefanik sounded practically like a Never Trumper, as she called on Trump to recognize that Russia had attacked the 2016 election to help him, urged him to release his tax returns, and assailed him for his comments about women.
…When the Access Hollywood video of Trump boasting of sexually assaulting women became public during the 2016 race, Stefanik criticized Trump, saying, “Donald Trump’s inappropriate, offensive comments are just wrong—no matter when he said them or whatever the context. I hope his apology is sincere.”
A network of conservative activists, aided by a British former spy, mounted a campaign during the Trump administration to discredit perceived enemies of President Trump inside the government, according to documents and people involved in the operations.
The campaign included a planned sting operation against Mr. Trump’s national security adviser at the time, H.R. McMaster, and secret surveillance operations against F.B.I. employees, aimed at exposing anti-Trump sentiment in the bureau’s ranks.
The operations against the F.B.I., run by the conservative group Project Veritas, were conducted from a large home in the Georgetown section of Washington that rented for $10,000 per month. Female undercover operatives arranged dates with the F.B.I. employees with the aim of secretly recording them making disparaging comments about Mr. Trump.
Another day, another senseless shooting. Senseless because guns are only being to hurt the innocent. Rarely are they used for good. At this rate we will end up likely lawless states such as Libya and Afghanistan:
A 2-year-old boy reportedly shot both of his parents in Maine after coming across a gun that was on a nightstand. The child, who was also injured when the firearm recoiled, fired just a single shot, according to CBS affiliate WGME.
The boy’s mother was shot in her leg and his father suffered a minor head injury Wednesday morning. All three were treated for non life-threatening injuries.
