Did I Hear Right That 'Drain The Swamp', 'Build The Wall' & 'Crooked Hillary' All....

were creations of CA? They were provided for Trump to use in his campaigning? CA created and managed Trump's campaign and Trump was just their puppet?

21. It was. "Deep State" was one of the first, along with "Drain the Swamp!"

.

And the CEO of CA and his companion mentioned how they would plant it in the internet and let it spread with gentle prodding, just enough so poeple would not suspect it as being politically motivated.

That whole "Deep State" narrative spread though Republican and Democratic camps. Last night, MSNBC (I think Hardball) had a survey that showed more Democrats believe in the Deep State than Republicans. So, it seems like the message resonates on some common ground between both party groups.

The Puppet used "any means necessary" to get elected. Greed, ego, and apathy. It's hard to figure out who's using who to get their agenda realised.

4. Bannon needed a vessel.

Putin needed a Bitch.
Trump needed cash.
The Republicans needed Power.
Their donors 'needed' a tax cut.

This is what the summation of Muellers investigation will be.

41. It sounds like a heist flick because that's exactly what it is.

Bannon was the only one with anything that could be called 'higher ideals'; everybody else was in it for the payday.
And Bannon is fuckin crazy. It's shock doctrine, domesticated. I think Chris Hedges was probably right.

12. So Do You Think This Could Be Trump's Undoing With His Base?....

The base learning that he isn't the linguistic genius he's made himself out to be. That the lines they thought were 100% Trump were just words from a script he was given to read and repeat to them. That even his using and calling out 'crooked hillary' was a fraud. That he was using them just like he was being used - as a puppet.

3. "Drain the Swamp" was stolen from Pelosi

 

who coined the phrase in 2006 to campaign against the Abramoff GOP Congress.

Our Trump-infatuated media gushed over Donnie's supposedly clever linguistics creation that wasn't even his.

29. Trump's supporters are convinced he's their messiah

If their messiah didn't come up with all his brilliant sayings, if he's just parroting memes fed to him by Russian trolls, some of them might begin to doubt his powers. Some of them might begin to question their previous fealty to a man who tells it like it is when they find out that he really just tells it like he's been told. Those feet might just be made of clay overlaid with gilt.

24. I think I heard that on the news.

But if people are going to allow themselves to be led instead of doing research, tactics like that work. Large numbers of democrats bought into those caricatures during the primary.

35. They definitely targeted people who wouldnt be inclined to do research

They analyzed each of the profiles by running them thru a computer to get a psychological profile of their fears and paranoia, as well as their habits.

Besides Trump folk they targeted potential Clinton voters and sent false messages designed to convince them to literally be scared to vote for her.

They should flog this fact until every rabid idiot shouting those horrific slogans realizes it wasn’t the brilliance of their leader, that he was indeed a puppet and his words meant nothing but “Me! Me!”

39. and "Deep State" too

I remember when Trump first tried that phrase. He said he didn't like it, but the crowds loved it, and so he loved it.

He gets this phrase from CA, tries it out, it resonates, so he uses it.

He's a total con man, a media creation, and we are paying the price for stupidity.

They literally tested Nazism on their focus groups and decided it was a winning message.
Trump used a campaign strategy firm run by his campaign manager that decided the best way to appeal through voters was a combination of racism of authoritarianism. They literally tested Nazism on their focus groups and decided it was a winning message.
