Trump goes after Joy Reid this morning and DU promptly joins in with multiple threads trashing her

throughout the day for not being nice enough to one particular presidential candidate - and telling us why her opinion doesn’t matter.

Coincidence? I think not.

Patterns and themes ...

NBC: Russia's propaganda machine discovers 2020 Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard

A few months old, but still very relevant ...

The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 U.S. election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat who earlier this month declared her intention to run for president in 2020.

An NBC News analysis of the main English-language news sites employed by Russia in its 2016 election meddling shows Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii, who is set to make her formal announcement Saturday, has become a favorite of the sites Moscow used when it interfered in 2016. Several experts who track websites and social media linked to the Kremlin have also seen what they believe may be the first stirrings of an upcoming Russian campaign of support for Gabbard.

Since Gabbard announced her intention to run on Jan. 11, there have been at least 20 Gabbard stories on three major Moscow-based English-language websites affiliated with or supportive of the Russian government: RT, the Russian-owned TV outlet; Sputnik News, a radio outlet; and Russia Insider, a blog that experts say closely follows the Kremlin line. The CIA has called RT and Sputnik part of "Russia's state-run propaganda machine."

All three sites celebrated Gabbard's announcement, defended her positions on Russia and her 2017 meeting with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad, and attacked those who have suggested she is a pawn for Moscow. The coverage devoted to Gabbard, both in news and commentary, exceeds that afforded to any of the declared or rumored Democratic candidates despite Gabbard's lack of voter recognition.

A sure sign that Mueller delivered and Democrats kicked ass today:

The number of “concern” threads here about how “frail” and “ineffective” and “complicit Mueller was, how the Democrats blew it, and what a dud the hearings were.

Transparent as hell.

I see the "Harris is too racist" threads are dying down and the "Pelosi's too weak" threads are back

And the beat goes on ...

Biden said something that Harris and lots of other people said was hurtful. Biden apologized

“for the pain or misconception that I caused.”

So why are people still attacking Harris and others for saying she found his words hurtful after he admitted himself that they were?

It’s really time to let it go, people.

What happened to all of the "Nancy Pelosi is weak" and "Impeach NOW or ELSE!" threads?

A couple of weeks ago, this board was inundated with them. Now, Poof! Gone.

Where’d they all go? Did Speaker Pelosi do or say something that got folks off her back?

Or is there only so much “outrage” to go around and someone else said or did something that shifted all of the fire and ire toward them?

I can't help noticing for every OP complaining about busing as a discussion issue, there seems

to be two OPs talking about Harris’ position on busing - and that more often than not, the complaints and the “Harris on busing” OPs are all coming from the same people.

It’s breathtaking how many here seem to falling for and are even (unwittingly, I’m sure) promoting the ratfucking.

C’mon people! Wake up. You’re being played!

Which candidate(s) will take a run at Biden in the next debate, now that he's shown a vulnerability

in not thinking fast enough on his feet.

And I wonder if the reaction will be as aggressive and angry as the response to his record being challenged in the last debate.

It will be interesting to see.


Y'all DO realize that some of the Harris-Biden fights here are eerily similar to the 2016 battles

we later learned were cultivated and ginned up on Russian troll farms, right?

I mean, really - just look at the OPs on the first page of the forum. Just about every one of them is an attack on Harris or on Biden. And the threads are full of accusations and in-fighting between the two camps.

Why do you think that is? Because they’re seen as the FRONTRUNNERS.

And until a few days ago, Biden bore the brunt of these kinds of negative posts. But since the debate, Harris has now joined him as the target of head on and relentless attacks.

I recommend we scale back some of this in-fighting.

This isn’t a scold - I’ve been doing it, too. But a couple of days being offline gave me a perspective.

We need to chill and not fall right back into the trap being set for us.

If an elected official said I support gay marriage

as long as it's voluntary, i.e., the local government voluntarily issues licemses and recognized gay marriage, but I don't believe the federal government has any right to force local communities to perform or recognize same-sex marriage," would you think that's acceptable?

If not, do you understand why many people have an issue with his state's rights defense of his position on busing and why we are hoping he'll clarify where he stands?
