Biden needs to hammer home all the WH "unmasking" requests on redacted documents, and then circle in on the subject matter of those docs.
I'm not sure that's true. It reeks of allowing Nero to set the agenda. I tend to think this is the media's job--to recognize that Once Again Nero is making shit up; that the story is not any Gate, but that Nero is One Again making shit up.

Biden, preferably his surrogates (talking about you, Kamala Harris), can slap it down when any idiot reporter decides to amplify Nero's shit, but other than that, no.

The pile of shit from the GOP is sky high, and is, IMO impossible to deal with one at a time, all the time.
Prolly good advise.

Just attempted to watch Trump on Fox talking about "Obamagate" and had to turn it off. He's literally just making shit up as he goes, double-talking bullshit and latching onto Bartiromo's lead. Not a single fact or scrap of anything but hearsay. Certainly nothing resembling a coherent story.

A good watch! It's fun to see those who are gone (Bill O'Lielly) and those who are still around and at it (Karl Rove, Lou "Birther" Dobbs, Hannity) and some who have woken the fuck up (Jake Tapper). But yeah, these were the big outrages.

I agree with everything here. There is no reason for Biden's camp to add legs to this bs other than dismissing it all out of hand. Let the journalists vet Trump's cac.

Sue me. I don't put ketchup on my burgers ( or on anything else, actually (sugar) ). Some tangy mustard, spicy brown or Dijon if you've got it and kick-it w some cajun seasoning. Seriously, there is NO ketchup in my house. :nope:

The absurdity of the conspiracy theory
Four years ago, there was a global conspiracy—comprised of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, FBI Director Jim Comey, much of the FBI, the DNC, a company called CrowdStrike, multiple foreign intelligence services, and Ukrainian oligarchs—to undermine Donald Trump by planting a phony conspiracy theory that he was colluding with the Russians to win the 2016 election. These deep state operators framed several top Trump officials, fabricated evidence, and spied on the campaign with the end goal of committing the biggest fraud in American history in order to derail Trump.

Actually 5 was Henry Heinz lucky number and 7 was his wife's. The original slogan was "57 Varieties of good things to eat". At the time it was adopted in the early 1890's Heinz made more than 60 products.

Note that the North Fork of LI was one of Heinz sources.

Cauliflower was pickled for Heinz just a few hundred feet from our cottage just across from the LIRR Station.

The Bulwark - Tim Miller: Trump’s Weekend of Scandal Was Hiding in Plain Sight

It's going on right now and no one can see it because of the chaff. ...

The president used the leads from the director of National Intelligence to advance an elaborate lie that accuses his opponent of committing illegal espionage against him.

This is the most outrageous and pernicious lie that a president has levied against his opponent in my lifetime.

And despite the president himself elevating this lie on Saturday, it was not discussed on front pages across the country. Forget front pages, it’s hard to find any article at all addressing the President’s insane charges.

Most coverage of the issue is framed around discussing whether or not Obama and Biden did anything wrong—there is literally no evidence to suggest that they did—rather than focusing on how the Trump administration is guilty of weaponizing American intelligence agencies for political ends by perpetrating this falsehood. ...

Trump’s actions combine the politicization of intelligence, the misuse of tax dollars, and the creation of a phony investigation using the Department of Justice in order to advance the president’s reelection campaign. And that’s just the nuts-and-bolts, the stuff you can probe with your hands. The president has also created a propaganda campaign that will lead millions to believe that one party actively spied on the other, further tearing the fabric of our country in ways that won’t be repaired for a generation. Or maybe ever.
