"You demonize...we call it the wrap-up smear, you smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest, and then you merchandise it and then you write it and say, "See, it's reported in the press that this, this, and this..." so they have that validation that the press reported the smear and then it's called a wrap-up-smear and the merchandise is the press' report on the smear we made. It's a tactic, and it's self-evident."

    This has become the modus operandi of the Left.  Political theater is their bread and butter.  "Nothing to see here" when the truth comes out.  The primary tactic is to claim the opposition is doing what in fact they are doing.  Trump was impeached for what Biden did.  Everything the left claims Trump did, they actually did and are still doing.  The lie has become the pillar of the State.

    I'm not quite sure how to rate this. Possibly 5 stars for a tactic that works or, a thumbs down because such heinous criminality is practiced with the grand success that it is. A demonic high priestess of the occupying statist theocracy infesting this land described well (as Archer stated above) her modus operandi.

    Evil has become "good" and good has become evil. The democrats in 2016, booed keeping God in the pledge. In 2020 they didn't even bother to mention Him. They are the party of the Klan and slavery...now the party of in your face treason, fraud and destruction...and the alleged "news" is right there bought and paid for. Sam Adams said so many years ago; "When a nation forgets it's God, tyrants soon forge it's chains."
    The left and the worst traitors the rino's, are self serving and treasonous...sadly they will probably get away with treason where in a true Constitutional Republic they would be hung. 
    But the judgement they will all face, unless there is a massive change, will be more unimaginable than they could even begin to surmise.
