    2019 in a nutshell.

    Fresno Republicans to reschedule annual dinner after Nunes-Twitter beef explodes
    Several tweets called for Fresno-area residents to flood the event and “moo” at Nunes – a reference to Nunes’ decision to sue Twitter, a Republican political operative and two parody accounts including “Devin Nunes’ cow” for $250 million earlier in the week.

    The dinner was originally planned for April 11 at Pardini’s in northwest Fresno.

    As news of the lawsuit spread, celebrities and influencers threw tremendous weight behind the cow account, causing its Twitter follower count to rise from about 2,000 to 620,000 as of Friday afternoon.
    What a bunch of snowflakes.

    Remember hos happy libs were when Reid used the nuclear option ?

    Not smiling so much now....

    The pendulum turns. In your scenario , the change would indicate that the populous was unhappy with D control and voted for change. It's like Obama using EO's to enact his policies- it's easy to make them disappear The idea of checks and balances ( I know the filibuster isn't part of the Constitution ) was to make it hard to enact legislation

    Trump-Russia 2.0: Dossier-Tied Firm Pitching Journalists Daily on 'Collusion'
    By Paul Sperry, RealClearInvestigations
    March 20, 201

    You can't discount this as " well it's from x site so I don't have to pay attention to it

    Real Clear sites have credibility



    "Key Democratic operatives and private investigators who tried to derail Donald Trump’s campaign by claiming he was a tool of the Kremlin have rebooted their operation since his election with a multimillion-dollar stealth campaign to persuade major media outlets and lawmakers that the president should be impeached.
    The effort has successfully placed a series of questionable stories alleging secret back channels and meetings between Trump associates and Russian spies, while influencing related investigations and reports from Congress.

    The operation’s nerve center is a Washington-based nonprofit called The Democracy Integrity Project, or TDIP. Among other activities, it pumps out daily “research” briefings to prominent Washington journalists, as well as congressional staffers, to keep the Russia “collusion” narrative alive.

    TDIP is led by Daniel J. Jones, a former FBI investigator, Clinton administration volunteer and top staffer to California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. It employs the key opposition-research figures behind the salacious and unverified dossier: Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson and ex-British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Its financial backers include the actor/director Rob Reiner and billionaire activist George Soros.

    The project’s work has been largely shrouded in mystery. But a months-long examination by RealClearInvestigations, drawn from documents and more than a dozen interviews, found that the organization is running an elaborate media-influence operation that includes driving and shaping daily coverage of the Russia collusion theory, as well as pushing stories about Trump in the national media that attempt to tie the president or his associates to the Kremlin.

    The group also feeds information to FBI and congressional investigators, and then tells reporters that authorities are investigating those leads. The tactic adds credibility to TDIP’s pitches, luring big media outlets to bite on stories. It mirrors the strategy federal authorities themselves deployed to secure FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign: citing published news reports of investigative details their informants had leaked to the media to bolster their wiretap requests.

    "New Knowledge publicly stated it was tracking Russian social-media disinformation networks during the 2018 campaign. In fact, it was secretly involved in its own disinformation campaign to influence the outcome of the 2017 Alabama Senate special election. New Knowledge operatives created thousands of fake Russian Twitter accounts programmed to follow GOP candidate Roy Moore to make it appear he was backed by Moscow.

    The scheme worked: a number of media stories reported Moore was being supported by Russians. Only, it was a high-tech frame-up. Most elections experts have concluded this fake Russian disinformation campaign did not affect the outcome of the race, which Moore lost largely because of allegations of sexual misconduct.
