Russian Bounty story

I can’t believe this isn’t getting big coverage right now. It’s almost like the media doesn’t care.

3. If we keep pumping it on social media

they'll pick it up.

I've been sharing it on another forum, as well as copying and sending Steve Schmidt's unrolled twitter thread to my senator who's up for re-election this year - Joni Ernst.

I'll also be sharing his unrolled thread on FB along with the NYT story.

The story just came out; it WILL gain steam....

Disappointing.

6. We still dont get it, do we.

I kept saying the traitor would let putin KILL Us and we would not be able to do anything about it.

And he is, they are.

The virus is being used to thin out the herd, putin wants us dead and the traitor takes orders.

NOTHING I just said is exaggeration...yet we still are not fully willing to absorb that

THEY ARE KILLING US ON PURPOSE

RIGHT NOW

10. Yeah I just watched the CNN segment

It was on, they made a big deal about it and then nonchalantly transitioned to another story like this is no big deal. I have seen it where CNN talked about something with a reporter and then went immediately to a panel to discuss further and get their opinions.

8. As the Guardian News of

 

Eourpe reported out some months ago,American News Reporters as well as News outlets have zero clue how to cover or report about Trump or anyone associated with him. American Reporters were called timid and are afraid of loosing access.

9. Two things need to happen for this to be the biggest story / scandal in modern political history

1. The story has to be provably true.

2. It has to be provably true that Trump knew about it, did not respond and actually continued his practice of appeasing Putin.


I believe these things to be true but we need receipts - without them it will make a small splash but be dismissed as “fake news” by the Trumpers.

Prove it and Trump will not be re-elected and it may actually be enough to motivate vulnerable Rs to remove him.

15. The media will only cover

what will fill airtime between ads for drugs we never knew we needed. If something will put more eyes on the tube, it will be beaten to death or the story will be flouted until they can beat it to death, resurrect it and beat it to death again it has little if anything to do with journalism or the news. They are only interested in $$$$$ from ad revenue.

19. Non stop squealing from the right wing For years

accusing mainstream media of being “LIBERAL MEDIA” was yet another very effective way the right has manipulated this country. MSM is so afraid of being the target of another one of the right’s hysterical and loud public outcries, they don’t push these stories enough.

20. See post 15

The media particularly cable noise infotainment is owned by large corporations who are in business to make money 💰. There job is two fold, 1). Fill airtime between ads for drugs that we never knew we needed and 2). Keep the status quo by fostering the divisions within society so that the monied interests can laugh safely all the way to the Camen Islands Bank.

13. Keep spreading the news on every social media platform that you have access to.

This WILL get out there, whether the media blows it up or not. We have more power than we think we do. Forward the links on this to everyone you know, post it on Facebook, Twitter and every other platform you belong to.

We can not let this story get swept under the rug. This is treason, it is unforgivable and it should be grounds for Trump's removal, whether by impeachment or otherwise. Never let this story die.

Call your congress people, contact the media, do everything you can to get this in their faces until they have no choice but to do something about it.

16. Saturday is a slow news day.

Wait to see what happens on the Sunday programs as well as next week.

I think this has legs.
