    Remember the rowdy tea party opposition to obamacare back in 2009 at town hall meetings? Is this author telling you how they were organized?

    The game is to get your followers to believe that your propaganda is real and the other guy's propaganda is fake.

    The underlying evil in all of this is the complicity of some of the press in not going out of its way to seek the absolute truth.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifes...=.26be789392dc

    CNN, New York Times, other media barred from White House briefing
    The headline says "Briefing." The internal story describes the get together thusly:
    a “gaggle,” a non-televised briefing, but gave access to a number of other reporters, including those representing conservative outlets.
    My facebook page says
    Trump White House Bars News Organizations From Press Briefing
    .

    So the propaganda (aka headline) implies that it is improper to have a "by invite only" press strategy session.

    What's the truth?

    Although the invited included Fox News, Breitbart and the Washington Times — all considered sympathetic to the administration — the approved list also included CBS, NBC, ABC, the Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Time and the Associated Press.
    Does the right to assemble an informal meeting, according to whatever standards the organizer wishes when it is an informal get together, a right or isn't it?

    It’s not unusual for the White House to handpick groups of reporters for some meetings. President Obama, for example, invited select columnists to the White House for off-the-record conversations.
    This post piece is all over the place, but the headline seems damaging. I have no problem with the piece except for the headline.

    Not one court case came of it. Texas Judge said the heavily edited videos are not proof.

    Your fake videos don't hold up in court.
    Labeling them veritas didn't make their lies truthful.

    And here you are responding right on cue to fake outrage.

    Conservatives know a lot about fake protests from the inside out.

    Another blast from the past.

    The anti-government fervor infusing the 2010 elections represents a political triumph for the Kochs. By giving money to “educate,” fund, and organize Tea Party protesters, they have helped turn their private agenda into a mass movement. Bruce Bartlett, a conservative economist and a historian, who once worked at the National Center for Policy Analysis, a Dallas-based think tank that the Kochs fund, said, “The problem with the whole libertarian movement is that it’s been all chiefs and no Indians. There haven’t been any actual people, like voters, who give a crap about it. So the problem for the Kochs has been trying to create a movement.” With the emergence of the Tea Party, he said, “everyone suddenly sees that for the first time there are Indians out there—people who can provide real ideological power.” The Kochs, he said, are “trying to shape and control and channel the populist uprising into their own policies.”

    A Republican campaign consultant who has done research on behalf of Charles and David Koch said of the Tea Party, “The Koch brothers gave the money that founded it. It’s like they put the seeds in the ground. Then the rainstorm comes, and the frogs come out of the mud—and they’re our candidates!”

    Donna Brazille just held up 463 pages of how Russians interfered in the election. Leaving the report for the next Chairman.
