Anyone know about Facebook ad buying? Do you

create your own database to give them and say, post this ad on everyone's page in the dbase?

If we could get a fund of donations, and we knew who to target, we could hire a team to monitor FB. The second they saw a smear ad, they could create a quick anti-smear ad and release it out to the same people?

Just blaming McConnell for letting election protection bill die is not enough. Action is needed.

I saw Beto climbing in TX only to be hit with the smear barrage and he plateaued. We can complain all day, but where's a doable action plan ? Guess it's gotta come from the private sector.

Like Bloomie had, what would you spend some of it in to defeat trump?

I'd spent 10 on defeating trump.

I would go down to the border and build free decent housing for immigrants.

I would give every precinct in America anti-tampering software for election.

I would start my own cable network...with one thing only...constant loop of Trump's malfeasance. I would also have a ticker on scroll - # days since last proper press conference where people could hear the questions. And # of days since last press briefing.

Sickening WaPo expose - what Trump's doing to our children


Trumpís words, bullied kids, scarred schools
The presidentís rhetoric has
changed the way hundreds of children are harassed in American classrooms, The Post found.

By Hannah Natanson, John Woodrow Cox and Perry Stein Feb. 13, 2020

Two kindergartners in Utah told a Latino boy that President Trump would send him back to Mexico, and teenagers in Maine sneered "Ban Muslims" at a classmate wearing a hijab. In Tennessee, a group of middle-schoolers linked arms, imitating the president's proposed border wall as they refused to let nonwhite students pass. In Ohio, another group of middle-schoolers surrounded a mixed-race sixth-grader and, as she confided to her mother, told the girl: "This is Trump country."

Since Trumpís rise to the nationís highest office, his inflammatory language ó often condemned as racist and xenophobic ó has seeped into schools across America. Many bullies now target other children differently than they used to, with kids as young as 6 mimicking the presidentís insults and the cruel way he delivers them.

Trumpís words, those chanted by his followers at campaign rallies and even his last name have been wielded by students and school staff members to harass children more than 300 times since the start of 2016, a Washington Post review of 28,000 news stories found. At least three-quarters of the attacks were directed at kids who are Hispanic, black or Muslim, according to the analysis. Students have also been victimized because they support the president ó more than 45 times during the same period.

Although many hateful episodes garnered coverage just after the election, The Post found that Trump-connected persecution of children has never stopped. Even without the huge total from November 2016, an average of nearly two incidents per school week have been publicly reported over the past four years. Still, because so much of the bullying never appears in the news, The Postís figure represents a small fraction of the actual total. It also doesnít include the thousands of slurs, swastikas and racial epithets that arenít directly linked to Trump but that the presidentís detractors argue his behavior has exacerbated.

Guess nobody's gonna subpoena Bolton ?

Couldn't find any new news


Last news 2-6-2020

House Democrats are torn about whether they should call in former National Security Adviser John Bolton to testify following the acquittal of President Donald Trump in the Senateís impeachment trial.

With Trump now acquitted and his office secure, House investigators could still issue their own subpoena. And many Democrats believe it remains vital that he testify about what he witnessed during the administrationís push to withhold U.S. security aid until Ukraine investigated Trumpís political rivals.

But thereís a fear among some Democrats that Bolton is primarily seeking to capitalize on the spotlight in order to promote his forthcoming tell-all book. Whatís more, some key lawmakers believe Boltonís account is no longer essential

John Boltonís gonna come in front of us and say, the President said, donít give out the aid until thereís an investigation,Ē Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT), a member of the Intelligence Committee, told The Daily Beast.ďI donít really believe weíre going to learn a lot more from John Bolton. I want to know what the hell Rudy Giuliani was doing, I want to know why Mike Pompeo didnít stand up much moreÖ Iím not saying I donít want to hear from Bolton, Iím just saying, Bolton will tell us what we already know. And he will do it in a way mainly designed to sell his book.Ē

Himesí skepticism isnít shared throughout the party. But Democratic leadership has notably not made any overt moves that suggest imminent plans to issue a subpoena for Bolton in the 24 hours since Trumpís acquittal. Instead, theyíve signaled a desire to regroup, take a post-impeachment breather, and focus on other topics. All of which has contributed to a curious outcome: that the House might hold off on using its power to get answers to significant lingering questions about the conduct at the heart of the articles of impeachment against the president.

Uh-oh...rumors on 3rd party run?


Libertarian Gary Johnson offers 'whatever I can do' to help Tulsi Gabbard in New Hampshire amid third party talk around the candidate

Jake Lahut Feb 9, 2020, 3:23 PM

Gary Johnson, the former governor of New Mexico and the 2016 Libertarian Party nominee, offered "whatever I can do" to support Tulsi Gabbard ahead of Tuesday's New Hampshire Primary. Gabbard, a Democrat, has bucked her party in the past and consistently draws Republicans, 2016 Trump supporters, libertarians and other non-Democrats to her events in the Granite State.
Johnson's support came the same day that Gabbard responded to an audience question that she would be "receptive to a third party" in front of a room that included many independent and Libertarian voters. She later clarified, "I am not running as a third party candidate."
Johnson won more votes than any third party candidate for the presidency in 2016 since Ross Perot did in 1992.

NOTE:. Think this story is much broader than just the Dem primaries, so posted here.
