Skip to comments.Pelosi’s “wrap-up smear” reads like template for Democrat attacks on Kavanaugh

As we continue to celebrate the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, it seems rather fitting that a video from a 2017 weekly presser is making the rounds. It shows House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) explaining to the assembled press what a wrap-up smear is and how it can be used to harm political opponents.
It reads like a template for the base and unfounded attacks on Justice Kavanaugh duringand afterhis confirmation hearings.
Pelosi: They [Republicans] dont want them [voters] to see that contrast, so they focus on something else. Its a diversionary tactic. Its a self-fulfilling prophesy, you demonize and then [trails off]. We call it the wrap-up smear. . . . You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest and then you merchandise it.
And then you [speaking to the press] write it, and theyll say, see its reported in the press . . . so they have that validation that the press reported the smear, and then its called the wrap-up smear. And now Im going to merchandize the presss report on the smear that we made. [Shrugging and smirking] Its a tactic. And its, its self-evident.

Whew! At least her definition of ‘Wrap Up Smear’ is not
gynecological in any way. With Dems of today, one never knows what to expect.
I just assumed she was accusing our side of this, though their side does it ad infinitum.
These people have no concept of what our nation is truly all about.
It’s about fair play, personal rights and liberties. It’s about innocent until proven guilty.
The Leftists are such frauds. Think about it. They want felons to be released, so they can have a life.
Then you take a guy found guilty of nothing, and they want them to pay for the rest of their life.
They are constantly engaged in extreme conflicts.
Pelosi stands for things our nation NEVER did.
Lost in space...
Isn’t it great though, to have to remain vigilant but to NOT have to win the presidency or congress back?
People here get so mad at the silliness of dems and I don’t blame them.
But at the end of the day, go to sleep with a smile.
We are defending territory already won, i.e., the presidency, congress, SCOTUS now.
We are finally not fighting to gain brutally difficult to attain territory. :)
November is Nancy’s last kick at the cat
There is a group of women that are stoking a civil war. They couldnt fight their way out of a paper bag and their talking thrash. Nancy,Maxine and Hillary are going to get some folks killed.
By any means necessary
What part needs explanation?
A Milano said they lost the battle but won in pushing the envelope further ... A Milano says they are winning the culture war.
Is she correct?
Exact same scam they ran on the FISA court judge to spy on the Trump campaign.
When it comes to our youth, I don’t know.
We see all the Leftists on parade on our school campuses, but we know our side can’t purchase any exposure.
What percent of people coming out of our universities are delusional vegetables on graduation day?
It may be far less than we think
The media will put anyone on camera that spews their ideology.
It looks as if we’re losing ground. I’m not convinced.
With the full court press the media, education, and Democrats have launched, we still win elections.
They get a few wing-nut protesters to act out, and city councils and university leaderships melt. Were these protesters the majority? I don’t think so.
You cannot destroy immutable truths.
They will remain immutable truths no matter what you do.
In the entertainment culture we have Blue Blood/Tom Selleck, and Tim Allen and Chuck Norris and James Woods.
The other side has almost everyone else and almost all other exposure.
Comrade Pelosi admits to the disinformation tactics and strategy.
Precisely what Pelosi Galore’s side did with Strozk/Page doing the *exact same thing* re: Trump.
Yes, I agree. As I understand it, Hitler had much the same support out of those groups.
I get it! Just like leaking the Steele Dossier to the press, then using the press reports as if they were independent confirmation of the same dossier when submitting the FISA application.
Wrap-up smear! Now we have a name for it. Now we can “merchandise” that!
Thanks for posting.
Very keen insight....

You've gone from being a wild bull in the China Shop to a serious philosopher in relatively short order. ;-)
