Yeah, its a real bitch for tyrants when the truth gets around.....
Barry: “I miss the days of the old Pravda”
I thought this was a remarkably bold line:
"Let's face it -- even some of the craziest claims can quickly gain traction. I've had some experience with that myself....considering how well the masses were manipulated by the media during his campaign and presidency thus far.
And when he starts talking about things that "threaten democracy," I start thinking the worst about what his brain-trust might come up with to solve the "problem."
Maybe it’s time for a Hugo Chavis like fairness Doctrine ... :)
The mainstream Marxist media the conservative weenie media have been silent on his natural born status.
It’s getting harder and harder to dupe those of us who make an effort to stay informed. Drats!
Fact is, his intention is to destroy our Republic.
Now what?!? 0 is preparing us for the theft of information and the freedom thereof by his administration. Lucifer is their hero.Guess I’d better get out my stationery and pen.
New methods need to be invented now!

That would create many-many government jobs reviewing all the posts. Would the rest of the world buy a crazy idea like this? Or would the same SCOTUS allow this that just threw out McCain-Feingold censorship bill?
only a communist could think or say such rubbish
This is how free elections are stopped and the voice of the opposition shut down.
