The lesson from 2016 should be, nominate someone who is inspiring to voters and brings with them too little baggage to be buried under. The media types who are Republicans and lean to the center/right or right, are more preoccupied with filling the Dem nomination slot with someone reflecting their more conservative, establishment sensibilities. That is very different from picking the candidate most likely to beat Trump and best bring change to the country.
Liberals don’t promote that conservatives are racists. They promote that the Republican Party is racist, and conservatives who are not racist should leave that party.
Those who voted for Trump might recall that Hillary promised people in Kentucky that she would put coal miners out of business, AND replace it with green jobs. Kentuckians were offended by Hillary’s vision of a new economy for Kentucky. I wonder how that is working out for Mitch McConnell’s and Donald Trump’s supporters in Kentucky?
"Global Warming," as a legislative human rights issue, is about owning the sources of the energy we use. Global warming, as an environmental issue, is largely incomprehensible and made overwhelmingly so by the professional disinformers.
There are many traps for conscientious candidates who run against a sociopathic demogogue who shows no hesitation to damage society or abuse the powers of the presidency to win at any cost. Avoiding them is critical.
Nunes claims that the portrayal he sees of himself in mirrors demean him and make him appear like "an overweight, slimy douche-bag".
For a little perspective on 2018, we invite you to take a stroll back through some of the events of this year through a gallery of graphics that were on PlanetPOV. Enjoy!
The Trump Twitter scheme is a rigged con game from a con man. We can't win at it because the game is keeping the media and people chasing intentional lies each day, to control their behavior and their topics of discussion.
Confronted by reporters that this didn't make any sense in the rest of his Putin-supporting/America bashing statement, Trump replied, "It's not surprising that people in the fake news have so much hate in them, even for pudding. Pudding doesn't make sense? It's not supposed to make sense, it's just supposed to taste good and that's why I be loving pudding,"
The message here to the media is, quit playing dumb. Accept what is obviously true about Trump and stop asking "neutral" or fair" questions about what he says and does in the pursuit of appearing impartial.
