Marianne Williamson Heard Praising Conservatives Over Leftists for Civility During Hot Mic Moment

Democratic 2020 candidate and author Marianne Williamson was invited onto Fox News for an interview and she came away with a realization that she voiced when she thought no one was listening.

According to Fox News, during a hot mic moment, Williams can be heard talking after her interview and saying that she was surprised at just how nicer the right is than the left:

In an audio recording released from an interview last week, Williamson sounded off on the hostility she has faced from the political left.

“What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the lefties are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me?… It’s such a bizarre world,” Williamson said. “You know, I’m such a lefty. I mean, I’m a serious lefty, but they’re so… I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right, they are.”

After expressing frustration about the release of the clip, Williamson clarified that it was how she felt on “that day” and expected that she knew running for president wouldn’t be a “walk in the park.” She added how Republicans “don’t have to be attacking” her during a Democratic primary while other Democrats “are working for other candidates.”

That last part of Williamson’s complaints about the left seems to ring true for the 2020 races as various candidates seem to be treated with care while others, like Rep. Tulsi Gabbard and Andrew Yang get the short end of the stick.

For instance, in the early debates, Yang could be seen attempting to speak but his microphone was cut off by MSNBC while other candidate’s microphones were working just fine.

After Gabbard took down Sen. Kamala Harris during a debate over her corrupt history as California’s District Attorney, CNN attempted to help Harris do damage control while they attacked Gabbard about past decisions. Needless to say, it didn’t work out well for Harris or CNN, both of whom didn’t come off well.

And we already know that the powers that be in the Democratic party are ready and willing to work for a specific candidate as evidenced by the way they were found to have been actively working against Bernie Sanders in favor of Hillary Clinton during the 2016 elections.

Williamson is discovering what many of us already knew or are finding out. The left is not her friend.

Obamacare-Backing Big Insurance – Looking to Again Expand Government Medicine

One heinous aspect of the heinous history of the woefully misnamed Affordable Care Act – aka Obamacare – was…and is…the vociferous backing of the inanity by huge insurance companies.

Notice I didn’t say small insurance companies.  Few such animals still exist – most having already been murdered by government medicine programs.

Small insurance companies can’t afford all the crushing costs of huge government medicine – so they die.

Which is good for huge insurance companies.  You know – less competition.

Also good for Big Insurance?  A law mandating everyone in the nation purchase their products – which Obamacare did.

Did Big Insurance know the law was awful – and it would make their products MUCH more expensive?  Of course they did.  Bad news for We the People – great news for them.

On average, Obamacare doubled premiums and tripled deductibles for those of us subjected to its heinousness.  Great news for Big Insurance.

Even better news…for Big Insurance?  Government would hand them ongoing, rolling, huge rafts of cash – i.e. around $1 trillion in premium subsidies.

But Obamacare was so awful – those ongoing, rolling, huge rafts of cash…weren’t nearly enough.  So President Barack Obama started unilaterally, illegally handing Big Insurance even more of our money.

So when the Donald Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans, God bless them all, started rolling back all the omni-directional Obamacare heinousness – we were delivered some of the most unsurprising headlines in the history of human communication.

Insurers Come Out Swinging Against New Republican Health Care Bill

Insurers Oppose Latest Republican Obamacare Repeal Effort

Insurers Oppose Repeal of Obamacare Individual Mandate

Not Even Insurance Companies Want Obamacare Repealed

“Not even” – should actually read “most especially.”

Because of the $1+ trillion in government money.  Because of the government mandate We the People buy their stuff.

Who cares if government medicine always and everywhere makes things demonstrably, exponentially worse for 300+ million Americans?

There are Big Insurance executives’ estates to be maintained.  And trillions of dollars of government money – covers a lot of lawn and house work.

So when any opportunity arises to increase government’s screwing up of medicine – Big Insurance is all the way down with the struggle.

Senators Release Plan to Lower Health Costs, End Surprise Bills

Because as has – yet again, very recently – been thoroughly demonstrated…government is excellent at lowering health costs.

A huge fan of this government medicine expansion – is a man by the name of Loren Adler:

“‘From a policy perspective, there’s a rationale that this is the ideal approach,’ said Loren Adler, the associate director of USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy….

“It’s possible that this option will upset provider groups, who risk receiving lower payments and having less leverage with insurance companies. Adler said these fears are mostly unfounded….”

Adler seems to be the media’s go-to fan of this latest attempt at government medicine expansion:

“Loren Adler, associate director of the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy, estimated that the proposed benchmark payment rate provision could help lower health insurance premiums by about 0.5% across the country.”

Wow.  A whole one-half of one percent.  Maybe.

Government yet again assaulting the medical industry – to get a MAYBE 0.5% rate reduction.

Thank you, no.  We the People pass.  Congress – should not.

And this minuscule prospective reduction – is according to this guy Adler.

The media loves mentioning Adler’s college gig.  But did you catch that “Brookings” reference?:

“Loren Adler is associate director of the USC-Brookings Schaeffer Initiative for Health Policy,  a partnership between the Center for Health Policy at Brookings and the University of Southern California Schaeffer Center for Health Policy & Economics.”

“Brookings” – is the Brookings Institute.  A Leftist “think” tank headquartered in Washington, D.C.

Did you catch the “Schaeffer” reference?  “Schaeffer” – is Leonard D. Schaeffer.

Let’s flash back to February 2016, shall we?

Leonard D. Schaeffer Initiative for Innovation in Health Policy Established:

“Leonard D. Schaeffer, a trustee of both Brookings and the University of Southern California, has provided a gift of $4 million to establish the Leonard D. Schaeffer Initiative for Innovation in Health Policy….

“The Initiative aims to inform the national health care debate with rigorous, evidence-based analysis leading to practical recommendations using the collaborative strengths of USC and Brookings.”

That’s an extraordinary amount of coin.  But that really ain’t nothing.

New Gift Strengthens USC Schaeffer Center’s Influence in Health Policy:

“Ten years after they created a research center at USC dedicated to advancing health policy, Leonard and Pamela Schaeffer have renewed their investment with a donation of $17 million….

“They established the center in 2009 and endowed it three years later with a $25 million gift.”

Tens of millions of dollars.  Dedicated by Schaeffer – to affecting government medicine policy.

Which seemingly means – expanding government medicine…yet again to the benefit of Big Insurance.

And how, pray tell, did Schaeffer acquire so much money – that he can afford to donate this manner of big coin to affect government policy?

Let us flashback to October 2003, shall we?

Acquisition Would Create Nation’s Largest Health Insurer:

“In a marriage of Blue Cross giants, Anthem Inc. agreed yesterday to buy WellPoint Health Networks for $16.4 billion in stock and cash, creating a company that would be the nation’s largest health insurer….

“WellPoint’s chief executive, Leonard D. Schaeffer, who created the company on the foundation of a successful turnaround of Blue Cross of California, will hand the reins to Larry Glasscock, Anthem’s chief executive….Mr. Schaeffer, 58, a former government health care official, will be chairman.

“Mr. Schaeffer’s WellPoint holdings — 3.3 million shares, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing last month — jumped in value by more than $70 million yesterday, to over $300 million.

“He would also receive $27.5 million under a change-of-control clause in his contract and about $10 million more in executive retirement benefits, according to the WellPoint proxy and other filings.”

Well isn’t all of that utterly unsurprising.

Schaeffer – was a government health care official.

Who then became the key player in turning already-big insurance – into the biggest of Big Insurance.

And received more than $300 million by so doing.

And now he and his minions are trying to expand government medicine – to the benefit of Big Insurance.

How very DC of…everyone involved in this very terrible idea.

Fake News Exposed: Washington Post Gets Busted After Attempting Bogus 9/11 Smear of NC House Republicans

Westlake Legal Group fake-news-1024x578-620x350 Fake News Exposed: Washington Post Gets Busted After Attempting Bogus 9/11 Smear of NC House Republicans Social Media roy cooper republicans Politics North Carolina News Media Mainstream Media journalism Government Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post fake news democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

As I wrote Wednesday, the New York Times got taken to the woodshed over how they initially portrayed the 18th anniversary of 9/11 as a day where “airplanes took aim” at the World Trade Center. It was an utterly shameless Ilhan Omar-esque take on the terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 innocent people after terrorists took aim at the Twin Towers by way of hijacking two planes.

Unfortunately the Times was not the only national newspaper who played fast and loose with the facts on 9/11.

The Washington Post published a report Wednesday afternoon on an incident that happened in the North Carolina state legislature involving a veto override done by House Republicans at the start of the day, and outraged Democrats who melted down on the House floor claiming they were lied to about there being “no votes” scheduled on the 9/11 calendar.

Whether NC House Dems were “lied to” is a separate (and untrue) argument that I won’t get into in this piece. Instead, we’ll focus on how the paper bogusly framed the issue in falsely painting the Republicans in the most unflattering light possible. This led to other national news outlets like CBS and left wing publications/commentators like the Daily Beast, “NowThis News”, and MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow spreading a story that in reality provides us with a classic example of fake news spreading like wildfire.

In the WaPo’s initial story, the headline read something to the effect of “North Carolina Republicans Overrode Budget Veto While Democrats Were at 9/11 Ceremony.” I didn’t get a screen grab of it, but you can see from the URL that’s it’s pretty close to what they had originally.

Reporter Lateshia Beachum started the story off by writing that “While North Carolina Democrats were remembering the lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, their Republican colleagues took advantage of their absence and …” The screen cap of her original report is below:

Westlake Legal Group WaPoInitial1-620x283 Fake News Exposed: Washington Post Gets Busted After Attempting Bogus 9/11 Smear of NC House Republicans Social Media roy cooper republicans Politics North Carolina News Media Mainstream Media journalism Government Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post fake news democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Cooper didn’t actually say NC House Democrats were away at 9/11 memorials while the override, but he inferred it:

“Today, on the 18th anniversary of 9-11, while the state was honoring first responders, Republicans called a deceptive surprise override of my budget veto.”

Instead of doing actual journalism by way of independently verifying the claim that NC House Democrats were en masse out solemnly attending 9/11 remembrances while Republicans overrode a veto, Beachum ran with Cooper’s claim uncritically. You can see it by the original headline used, and by how she framed the first two paragraphs.

By reading what she initially reported, you’d think Republicans underhandedly used the 18th anniversary of 9/11 to upstage Democrats after a months-long budget stalemate.

CBS News also ran with it after reporting that a local news media outlet (WTVD) said “many Democrats were at 9/11 commemoration events.” Except there was no such claim in WTVD’s reporting other Cooper’s claim.

“NowThis News” ran with this framing in a tweet that has well over 20,000 retweets as of this writing, and which has been retweeted by liberal comedian Sarah Silverman and actress Alyssa Milano among others. Rachel Maddow ran with this framing (nearly 7,000 RTs). The Daily Beast ran with the framing as well.

The only problem? It’s not true.

North Carolina journalist Colin Campbell, who writes for the Raleigh News and Observer and other local publications, noted in a tweet yesterday that in reality only one House Democrat had attended a 9/11 ceremony:

In fact, numerous other Democrats were indeed working at the state legislature on 9/11 instead of attending remembrances. Yesterday was not a national holiday and there were bills on the calendar for reconsideration among other important state issues that were being addressed by legislators in both parties.

Another News and Observer journalist noted that audio from Tuesday’s session confirmed votes would be taken on 9/11:

The WaPo issued a bogus “clarification” later and rewrote the story, but by that point it was too late:

For whatever people think about Republicans overriding the veto itself without all members present (it can be done and has been done in the past – by House Democrats when they had control of the state House), the erroneous reporting done by the Washington Post set off a chain reaction of other websites running with the same fake news about how Democrats “were away” at 9/11 ceremonies when they really weren’t:

Usually here in North Carolina it’s the local political media we have to watch out for when it comes to spreading fake news. This time around it was the national media with local news reporters (to my pleasant surprise) correcting them.

The damage has already been done, but nevertheless the truth should be put out there for the record.

Watch: Former ICE Director Clowns Debbie Wasserman Schultz About Her Ignorance On the Border Crisis

Westlake Legal Group Capture-2-620x345 Watch: Former ICE Director Clowns Debbie Wasserman Schultz About Her Ignorance On the Border Crisis Tom Homan Politics immigration Ice Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Debbie Wasserman-Schultz border crisis Allow Media Exception

Former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan wasn’t taking any lip from Democrats during a House Oversight Subcommittee on Civil Rights and Civil Liberties on Wednesday, specifically from Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida.

According to Fox News, Homan was pushing back against a Democrat party established narrative that said President Donald Trump’s administration was ending deferred action, which gives certain illegal immigrants with medical issues a reprieve from deportation.

Wasserman Schultz didn’t like the fact that Homan was correcting the lie and attacked him personally with accusations of bigotry and essentially calling him a liar.

“I think it’s important to really make sure that the jingoistic, bigoted testimony of Mr. Homan is called out as nearly completely untrue, as being an outrage, and as a former official directing the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, he should know better,” she said.

“What did I say was inaccurate?” Homan asked her.

“I just think it’s important that it’s not accepted as accurate testimony,” said Wasserman, ignoring the question and moving on to another witness.

Homan waited until it was Republican Rep. Jim Jordan’s turn to ask the question, and used the time to fire back at Wasserman Schultz. The former ICE director made sure Wasserman Schultz’s ignorance about the border crisis was on full display, and made her look like a coward to boot.

“If I can respond to the earlier remark from Wasserman Schultz, I’ve forgotten more about this issue than you’ll ever know,” he said. “So if you say my testimony is inaccurate, it’s wrong. Everything I said here is accurate. Bottom line. If you want to go toe to toe, I’m here. I’m here on my own time to speak to the American people about what’s false and what’s fact.”

“I’m happy to go toe to toe with you Mr. Homan,” Wasserman Schultz responded. “I’m happy to do that any day.”

“Then you gotta let me respond to your question rather than dropping a bomb and running away,” Homan fired back.

Wasserman Schultz attempted to make an excuse about her fleeing Homan’s question with “it was my time,” but the damage was done.

Homan continued by stating that the border crisis won’t be solved by generating false narratives and promising things to illegal immigrants like leniency and free healthcare.

Homan has been fighting the narrative created by Democrats that ICE are heartless people who mistreat immigrants at the border.

“It doesn’t help to have a mixed message that all of a sudden deferred action is going away,” he said during his remarks to congress. “ICE doesn’t put their heart on a shelf when they wear the badge and gun and all of a sudden don’t care about humanity. It’s ridiculous. It’s a ridiculous false narrative, and I’m going to be here ’till the day I die defending the men and women of the Border Patrol and ICE who put it on the line defending this country.”

Watch: Nancy Pelosi Gets Treated Like a Republican by the Press and She Doesn’t Like It at All

Westlake Legal Group media.townhall-9-620x317 Watch: Nancy Pelosi Gets Treated Like a Republican by the Press and She Doesn’t Like It at All San Francisco Chronicle republicans Politics Nancy Pelosi Mitch McConnell Media Mainstream Media Guns gun control Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats Allow Media Exception

Normally, the Democrats get treated pretty well by the mainstream media. They’re often thrown softball questions, or are given the opportunity to blatantly lie without the reporter ever correcting them. This is the opposite for Republicans, who are often put in the hot seat and asked to tangle with a narrative pre-established by the media.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is one such Democrat that has gotten a pretty cushy treatment by the press throughout her career, while rarely ever having to be in a situation where she’s in any real danger of hostility from the media.

However, on Wednesday, Pelosi was confronted by a reporter from the San Francisco Chronicle who apparently made Pelosi answer for the lack of gun control measures despite Democrats best efforts. Pelosi didn’t appreciate it, to say the least, and after putting the blame on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, proceeded to chide the reporter for asking those kinds of questions.

“Do you have any regrets about not bringing the House back in August to keep the flame lit on gun violence?” asked the reporter.

“No, absolutely not. We did our job. The Senate was supposed to come back. Why don’t you all get that straight? The Senate did not come back to pass the bill. I’m getting very angry about the silliness of these questions. Lives are at stake. Senator McConnell is standing in the way,” Pelosi replied, clearly annoyed.

“We passed our bill in February. Members had events all over the country to ask him to bring up the bill. Don’t ask me what we haven’t done. We have done it,” she continued.

Pelosi proceeded to instruct the journalist on what she should be doing instead of asking her these questions.

“And if you are annoyed with my impatience, it’s because people are dying because Senator McConnell hasn’t acted. Why don’t you go ask him if he has any regrets for all the people who died because he hasn’t acted?” she said.

While Pelosi blames McConnell for there not being any advancement on gun control legislation, it should be noted that the American people are actually losing interest in gun control, and that as a result of the Democrats pushing gun control efforts, gun sales have once again spiked.

That said, it’s good to see Democrats being asked difficult questions by the press. Trust in the media is still at a low point, and it’s no wonder why. It’s more or less dedicated itself to becoming an anti-Trump propaganda machine and failing at it to boot. Not only does it look overwhelmingly biased, but it also looks incompetent.

Still, it’s funny to see how angry a Democrat gets when its media when it asks an unapproved question.

MSNBC Anchor Asks Condoleezza Rice If Russia’s Interference Elected Trump; Rice Leaves Her Speechless

MSNBC’s Savannah Guthrie asks former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, “Do you think it’s possible that Russia’s election interference actually worked, actually elected Donald Trump?”

Before Guthrie even finishes the last phrase of her question, Rice is shaking her head no and says:

I don’t think there is any evidence of that and you know, I really don’t think that that’s a good conversation to have. I think that really does devalue the people in Wisconsin and Michigan and others who decided to vote for President Trump. Whether you like this President or not, whether you believe that he should have been President or not, let’s give the credit to the Americans who went out and voted for somebody who they thought would bring change. And the question is, are we going to be responsive to some of the messages that were out there and do you hear me now? People who felt that they were disadvantaged by globalization, the unemployed coalminers in West Virginia, the opioid addict in Pennsylvania, are we going to be responsive to those people? That’s really the question we should be asking.

Guthrie is in a state of shock because she has just been so completely, yet so diplomatically, shut down. There is really nothing she can say. She immediately shifts back to the new book (about the Cold War) that Rice appeared on the show to promote.

Guthrie says, “Well, the book of course is called “To Build A Better World.” It’s got a lot of thought provoking issues in it. Thank you so much for being here this morning.”

And that was the end of that.

CNN Does Something Absolutely Disgusting On the Anniversary of 9/11

Westlake Legal Group fake-news-1024x578-620x350 CNN Does Something Absolutely Disgusting On the Anniversary of 9/11 white supremacy Unbelievable The New York Times Right Wingers Politics leftists Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story fake news Disgusting democrats CNN Amnesia 9/11

These people have no shame at all.

CNN continues its march past the brink of insanity by using the anniversary of 9/11 to push their favorite narrative. Namely, that Republicans are racist and that the real shame of today is that we have “amnesia” by not treating white supremacy seriously. Yes, on the anniversary of the worst attack on America in history, instead of reflecting on Islamic terrorism or simply focusing on the victims, CNN decided to run interference for terrorists and lecture Americans on the violence of “right-wingers.”

Because of course they did. They couldn’t give it a rest for even one day.

Here’s a screenshot of one of the graphics they put up.

Yes, this was a real segment. It was so absurd that some people actually thought the captures of it going around were photoshopped.

CNN calls it a “reality check” and instead of focusing on what happened on 9/11, including who perpetrated it, they deflect to blaming  “Right-wingers” for being the “deadliest terrorists.” I’m a right-winger. Am I a terrorist now? CNN apparently thinks so based on their vague use of language, which is obviously purposeful.

Wait, you mean if you wipe away 3,000 victims of Islamic terrorism from the record, suddenly Islamists don’t lead in the body count? Shocking if true.

I can’t begin to explain how ridiculous and disgusting this is. Today is about remembering the victims of 9/11. CNN ignores the dead and wants to rant about right wingers being terrorists. How do they think that makes the families of the victims feel? That they are so unimportant, so subservient to the leftist narrative, that they aren’t even counted in order for CNN to force a point.

Meanwhile, The New York Times decided to only push out a single editorial today discussing 9/11. What was it about? America’s Islamophobia of course.

The press at large are just trash. They couldn’t give it a rest for one day. Not one stinking day.

We’ve chronicled the campaign of lawfare that the left has conducted against this administration for over two and one half years now. Whenever they’ve lost actual power, via changes in laws or changes in policy, they’ve toddled off to some nice tame and stump-broke progressive judge who will take control of the entire United States government by issuing a nationwide injunction. The White House and Attorney General have let it be known that they are well aware of the abuse of authority by federal judges who illegally make decisions for the entire nation based on the one case before them. The Supreme Court has let it be known that it’s majority, too, is becoming annoyed at federal judges acting as a combined legislative/executive branch and imposing their policy preferences on the country rather than ruling on matters of law.

The matter be close to coming to a head on the issue of the new amnesty rules promulgated by the Department of Justice. Basically, they say that if you come to the US seeking amnesty and you have transited any other nation or nations en route that you must have applied for amnesty in at least one of them and been turned down.

This should have been a fairly uncontroversial rule but because OrangeManBad groups with no apparent standing went to a federal judge, Jon Tigar, who is naturally situated in San Francisco. Tigar his so hostile to the administration that he gained the distinction of having President Trump label him an Obama judge. This caused the Lido deck cruise bunch to have a cow and provoked Chief Justice John Roberts to nonsensically proclaim that there were no Obama judges or Trump judges. Anyway Tigar ordered a nationwide injunction. The decision was appealed to the Ninth Circuit. Surprisingly, in a fit of sanity, the Ninth Circuit lifted the nationwide injunction, left it in place for the Ninth Circuit, and remanded the case for further fact finding. But, the Justice Department also took the nearly unprecedented step of asking the Supreme Court to take up the case immediately. Finding facts happened and in short order, two days ago, Tigar issued yet another nationwide injunction. Yesterday, the Ninth Circuit again limited the effect to that circuit. But today the Supreme Court had had enough Resistance bullsh**.

In what appears to be a 7-2 decision, the Supreme Court removed the injunction and let the regulation go into effect nationwide. The order removes the injunction through trial and appeal to the Ninth Circuit. If the Ninth Circuit rules against the administration, the stay of any injunction remains in place until the Supreme Court either declines to hear the government’s appeal or when the Supreme Court makes a decision.

There is more than a little butt-hurt from the self-styled “wise Latina” but who really cares?

This is probably as much a shot across the bows of Resistance judges as anything else. It seems that the Supreme Court, for the most part, has heard Barr’s complaint and decided to do something about single federal judges setting national policy. If that is the case, then this has gone a long way towards establishing a bit of humility among our black-robed masters and restoring the rule of law.

Report: the DNC Launched an Initiative to Infiltrate Talk Radio. Are Their Instructions Still Being Followed?

What the heck?

According to a new report, prior to the 1996 election — via which Bill Clinton faced a dubious 2nd term — the Democratic Party hatched a plan to inundate conservative talk radio show with callers who were sneakily in fact left-wingers. The mission? To push Democrat talking points.

Evidence of the Talk Radio Initiative was discovered within documents at the Clinton Presidential Library, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon.

According to the article, the effort was launched in light of the tremendous GOP victory of the 1994 midterms — for the first time since 1954, Republicans ruled the House.

In an internal report from the time, the DNC laid it out:

Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion. We have now put our frustration into action.

So their idea was to convert hardcore conservative radio listeners with liberal ideas?

Yep. From the Free Beacon:

[W]ith the blessing of the Clinton White House, launched the Talk Radio Initiative (TRI) ahead of the 1996 campaign. The program trained thousands of operatives to call in to radio shows, conduct surveillance of their contents, and secretly disseminate Democratic talking points while posing as ordinary listeners.

Interesting plan.

Michigan Democrats prepared a guide; here’s a sample:

Volunteers must be able to keep the project confidential so as not to create the image of a “Democratic conspiracy” to infiltrate Detroit area talk radio shows. Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.

So how’d they do?:

Radio show hosts long suspected that someone was training so-called “seminar callers” to inundate their shows with sympathetic callers. Lars Larson, a host in the Pacific Northwest since the mid-1990s, recalled being on the receiving end of many such calls, but was not aware that many may have been trained by the DNC.

“You would get calls, an hour apart, from different people with different voices and different names, but they would talk the same lines. So close that you knew that this was not a coincidence,” Larson said. “It was the same language on the same subject and the same arguments.”

Great jobs, ya stealthy spies.

It’s a real shame — Wolverine State Dems spelled out how to evade capture:

If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!

Genius!

According to the Free Beacon’s research, 23 states were involved in the mission, with 4,000 operatives on the ball.

Furthermore:

The records also revealed that the Clinton administration consistently kept tabs on and coordinated with TRI, considering it a crucial pillar of the administration’s plan to neutralize conservative radio in preparation for the 1996 election.

As per the report, at the 1996 Democratic Convention, TRI set up three-hour training sessions for the agents.

Rush Limbaugh responded to news of the initiative Tuesday; check that out here.

So did the project ever officially end?

The DNC-published instructions advised a novel approach:

Sound dumb. Even though you may have indicated a difference of opinion with the host, appear to present an opportunity for him to demolish you with his “superior” intelligence.

Some might suspect the same instructions are still being doled out.
