    Many people who watch Fox "News" and other conservative media don't even realize they use right wing talking points because the only "news" they get is from Fox "News" and other conservative media. If that garbage is the only thing you hear then you think that it has to be true.

    The worst part is when people use right wing talking points and then insist, INSIST! that they came up with what they said all by themselves. It's amazing how people can convince themselves of something when it is easy to prove otherwise.

    Republicans do a very good job of confusing their followers. The Yates and Comey hearing was supposed to be focused on Russian interference in our Presidential election, but Republican Senators were more focused on leaks and unmasking.

    Their strategy seemed to work because our resident right-wing "Democrat" who has never once stood up for a single Democratic politician or policy position reappeared to repeat Republican talking points pretty much verbatim.

    Yeah well, when I ran expedited cargo for awhile, trying to listen to FM radio for music was useless, I'd flip the switch to AM and seek liberal talk media, but gosh dang, there was hardly any out there. All I'd be able to receive was conservative talk crap. I'd be able to stand about 2 minutes of that. When I'd pull my van into truck stops for fuel or fast food, they'd have Fux news on televisions, I was like.. is that all these people out in the country listen to? OMG, lot's of brainwashed people out there, lot's. It was always good to get within range of Chicago where my radio was receiving liberal talk, and not country and western stuff, I'm not a country boy at all.

    And those R talking points, I learned from Chris Matthews that those are what he called dog whistle politics. It's a good thing I have a pc to watch MSNBC, otherwise, I'd go nuts watching con media all the time.

    Trust me, I know exactly where you're coming from. I grew up in central Illinois, which might as well be called northern Kentucky.


    Back to the topic though - I long for a day where a hearing is held and the topic of the hearing is what is actually discussed. Republicans want nothing more than to bury this whole Russian interference thing under the rug, but I would caution them that their short term gains may wind up being their long term losses.

    If Donald is as unpopular next November as he is right now then Republicans in Congress are going to be up shit creek without a paddle. Well, as long as Democrats actually come out and vote in 2018.

    The only thing that keeps me optimistic about our midterm chances is reminding myself about the 2006 election. Democrats only seem to vote in midterm elections when we aren't in power.

    Sally Yates will be on Anderson Cooper's show tonight and CNN released a teaser clip where she said that Russia had "real leverage" over Flynn. This comes on the same day that the New York Times reported that Donald wishes he never fired Flynn. Talk about bad timing...

    I'll post the full interview once CNN releases it.

    Nightly news opened with breaking news that Trump had asked Comey to go light on Flynn because he's genuinely a good guy. Comey was subsequently fired so apparently he can't recognize when a suggestion is an order. Russia should be brought up at every opportunity because this country was screwed and the guilty parties are not being asked to be accountable. Pressure should be constant.

    Comey recognized that every meeting with the fat idiot was a crime planning session , so he wrote down everything , every time and now we will have the minutes of the sessions , every shit stained minute.

    Buckle your seat belts and get your popcorn ready the shit is about to bit the fan.

    This young lady is saying the things I want said. She's getting media exposure frequently. Take a note leadership, this is what we need far more of. A future in politics could go exceedingly well if she chose.

    (not on Russia topic but Sally Yates opposing the admin. is good but not worth a new thread)
