Maddow has lived on Trump-Russia for two years. Not doing so well, now:
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow lost half-a-million viewers in just one week after special counsel Robert Mueller’s report indicated that he did not find enough evidence to support collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Maddow has been one of the most prominent voices on the collusion conspiracy, spending most of her programs over the past two years on allegations that President Donald Trump coordinated with the Russian government to win the 2016 presidential election…
We’ll see how it plays out – but I think a lot of people who aren’t committed Democrats were going along with this MSM Narrative simply because, until just now, their faith in the MSM remained mostly unshaken. But I wonder if this is the start of a complete break-down…where people in large numbers simply stop believing the MSM? This plus things like the Smollett case might make for a vastly different electorate in 2020 as opposed to 2016. Back then, almost everyone had their doubts about Trump…but come 2020, those doubts might be long gone, and that means Trump will get voted on based on how people think things are going.
RSM has more on this.
Meanwhile, Don Surber takes an early look at Trump’s 2020 strategy.
Excellent article about the history of America’s various two-party systems – but I think that while correct in saying we’re in a re-alignment phase, it doesn’t acknowledge just what one side wants: a complete revocation of everything that came before. Call it what you will – “the left” is just a bit of shorthand – the people compromising the real movers of the Democrat party despise the United States and the civilization it sprang from. They want it all gone and a completely new thing fashioned in its place. This is why I say that our current fight is for all the marbles. This isn’t FDR routing the remains of the Gilded Age GOP…this is a conflict between antithetical forces and one or the other will be eliminated.
The New York Times is upset that Poland is ok with admitting Christian immigrants but not so keen on non-Christians. My view: better that your immigrants have at least some familiarity with your national culture. Also my view: Christians are the most oppressed people in the world and should be first in line for all refugee claims in the West. Also my view: we should increase immigration from sub-Saharan Africa because that will inject some very devout Christians into the United States and will just really annoy the heck out of liberals.
