Yes, I know. You don’t have to tell me that Republican propaganda began, in earnest, with Nixon and has been growing ever sense. But the last couple weeks have been very bad for the Tangerine Tovarisch. Twelve of his allies in Russia were indicted. The Helsinki blowjob and his subsequent lame excuse humiliated him. The Mueller probe is closing in. Cohen taped him bribing a mistress. Worst of all, people all over the world are laughing at him. I think the current barrage of disinformation is borne of desperation, and his minions keep goose-stepping behind him.

I saw this when it happened, now it’s been cut off out of the tape. Just like dt to do this, with the backup and support of Putin, and the gop.

He wants nothing but praise, & fawning, and obliteration of the free press/media. imho.
Now that’s scary!

GOP has long lived in "opposite world", if they say it the opposite is true

Ordinarily, when I put a comment on one thread here which is applicable to more than one, I don't repeat it. But I remarked on this on the Open Thread, and I'm repeating the warning here, because frankly this scares me more than Republicans. Please don't think I am not in agreement with "Vote Blue No Matter Who" - I absolutely am. I just don't want us to forget that we are going to have to be working with some people we don't agree with in order to get things done. And I don't mean Republicans - they won't work with anyone and won't listen to reason or facts, and there's not really much we can do about that. Democrats certainly have the potential lo listen to reason, and I hope will do so. I don't want to offend them (I don't care how much I offend Republicans.) I'm not sure how we need to deal with this.

RESIST AND PERSIST!

“…back to normal.” Excuse me, but what was “normal” over the last decades? Have we been buddy, buddy with Russia over that period? Clearly, what we have here is BS on steroids. But “Da!” He did want and have his people act for Dumpy! And some wonder why the WH transcript might read differently? Right, the WH is going to point it out and say “See he did do that!”

Keep up the pressure, folks! Keep contacting your Congress critters via phone, e-mail, text, Tweet, handwritten letter (best of all - shows you are going to some serious effort), singing telegram, etc. Spread the news, attend protests, keep raising hell! Let us hope this is the beginning of the end for the Orange Ogre's FUBAR "administration."

Thankfully the sequel has been postponed (announced 'not until next year when Mueller investigation ends') and Ryan did say Putin would not be invited to address Congress...hope the postponement includes the military parade plans, too, since they resemble what Russia does (I hope these elements of Russia are sufficiently on topic for this post TC).

This is so scary. The peeps that only watch faux news and don't read will believe whatever they are told. I'm very glad that we have not gone so far down the rabbit hole that we still have reputable news sources to point out his lies and back them up. I agree with you Freya. We must do everything you said.

It's getting crazier. We must do like Freya suggested and keep after our ones in Congress. Hopefully it will lead tRump and his cronies out of the W.H. and into their cells.
Thanks TomCat

The putrid pus-sac known as Donald J. Trump, that the Electoral College has foisted upon the country and the world is trying to rewrite history, right before our eyes.

Those that would stand for this are not American but are both un-American and anti-American.

I believe that we need to investigate the Electoral College.

I guess the biggest problem is how do we convince the people Trump has duped that he is a wolf in sheep's clothing? He has plenty of Republican supporters who who exactly what he is but are willing to hold their noses as long as he keeps appointing extreme conservatives to the bench. Those people are a lost cause. But how do we reach all the blue collar and rural folks who think Trump is their Savior? I honestly don't know.

Years of living have taught me that some folks like to play in the dark side of life. It seems that a portion of tRump's followers could be among that ilk. But, I also believe that the core center of this country is based in hopeful people who dream of making this nation a good place to be, where integrity has the last word, and corruption is born out as destructive to society. The Democrats have a pretty fair shot at blocking further moves toward tyranny. Enthusiasm to correct our present day governmental take-over can build, can inspire, can give back this precious hope that once our Nation of Freedom aspired across all borders. Nobody is perfect ~ however, we are seeing the harm, and abuse, of the Republican party, - propped up by the Russian agenda to remake our country. We must do all in our power to stop this nightmare from becoming our day of sorrow.
Bravo to Our TC - your constant thread of dialogue is golden in this tapestry of threat to us all.

In agreement with the comments here...the BS gets even worse as I do surveys daily and some are on politics, people and issues. Am starting to see a few surveys on people running for office in various states. We are given what are supposedly quotes, partial sentences, of what candidates have said in the past. We choose which statements we like, which are convincing, and which are least convincing for us to vote for a candidate.

So far it has only been the state's candidates for Governor and our legislatures and the candidates are only for our states, as given by the zipcodes we enter. Last election we got this from the POTUS candidates and it was a trip. For two months now we have also been answering general questions about how we like/approve and/or disapprove/do not like specific people in office, including the Hairball and his minions. Included are the GOP, and various Congress members. Cannot give actual questions and info out as we are bound by secrecy as to content of surveys.

I imagine this will get crazier as we get closer to election time. ..Thanx TomCat.

I hear you Mitch! When I heard "back to normal", I wondered what normal . . . the cold war, glasnost, Drumpfian, Putinesque?

And then there is the matter of the Reuters journalist's question . . . the truth (which I of course prefer), the WH scrubbed version which leaves out part of the question, and the Russian version which completely deleted the question and answer from the posted transcript. Richard is correct. Both the Drumpf régime and Russia are trying to rewrite history for their own realities and purposes. Unfortunately, the Drumpfians will cling to the WH version because it suits their beliefs.

Then there is the matter of the 12 Americans, including Ambassador McFaul, who Putin says he wants to question about crimes in Russia and Drumpf seemed to entertain for 4 days. What was Drumpf thinking?
My bad . . . Drumpf does not think! Rachel mentioned that the Wikipedia article about Maria Butina had been scrubbed by Russia. It appears to have been reversed 25/07/2018 but that does not mean such things will not happen again.

This entire episode should seal the case for treason, but it won't. I am sure that when confronted, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will spin more lies for the régime.

This was an excellent piece and of course Rachel did her usual excellent reporting.

Resist, Persist, Remove!!!

Lock HIM up!!!

Silence is Consent!!!

I have just heard that BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) are trying to overcome the western countries. Why cant we all work in tandem. ANOTHER product has been removed from our shelves because it is harmful.
