1. A great read!

Highly recommended.
The concept of 'framing' is a great one.

Explains why I'm pro Democrat, law and order, stick to the established rules, etc.

Watched a documentary on 'Doomsday preppers'. Their 'logic' sounds like the Republican party in general.

9. Well, when you can't think of anything original to hurl at your opponents...

and there's nothing you can say to destabilize the facts, attack!
You're right: this is the way tRump has been his entire life.

6. Thank you for that, Hermit.. I learned a

new Latin phrase.

They can "Tu quoque" all they want but it's not working for those who aren't Not brainwashed.

12. The money quote:

"This letter proves, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Trump is unfit for office. The letter ITSELF is proof that Trump has abused his power and obstructed justice.
"The #TrumpLetter is proof positive that Trump is unqualified to be President of the United States of America."


Next week, the traitor punditry will be smeeeeerking away as they snivel, "Well, obviously he didn't write that himself; your beef is with the person who did."
