Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928

Live from the Front Porch! These days we all need some summer fun. I once lived on the front porch for an entire summer and it was pure bliss. Summer stories in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

First of all we honor those who have fallen in battle for our country on Memorial Day.

Second we’re not supposed to say, “Have a happy Memorial Day Weekend”.

Finally I did anyway. I know. Just seems like we all need some good summer vibes.

Consequently I might take some flack for my summer best wishes. However this three day weekend in the US is also our summer kick off.

More importantly this is probably going to be the weirdest Memorial Day weekend in memory.

Therefore as I we kick off the weekend time to share some stories about summer.

For example there was the time I spent an entire summer living on the front porch. My backyard ‘fort’. Running around the neighborhood in the middle of the night. Spending the entire summer at the Lion’s Club Pool.

What about those rainy cold summers? Day after day spent playing cards with all the other kids on the neighbor’s front porch. At the end of the summer someone would announce school was starting soon. What happened to the summer?

Above all summers in the upper Midwest are short. Memorial day weekends are usually rainy and cold. Due to the extreme nature of our seasons up here we approach every moment of any warmth with gusto! We’ll talk about it in Front-Porch-Summer-Stories-Bob Davis Podcast 928.

In conclusion, join me on my front porch today as I test out some new podcasting equipment and tell some stories. We all need a break from the insanity.

Most importantly the mechanics of this victory show how Trump could win the 2020 election.

Social Media and Misinformation

First of all I’ve been watching how right wing groups use social media and internet platforms to float ideas.

Fringe Fest

Secondly it usually starts with the fringe.

Mainstreamers, Think Tanks and The President Chime In

How To Be Your Own Reporter

I’ve explained all this in a previous podcast which you can find here.

Learn Tactics

However even I was a little surprised when the White House employed the tactics I’ve uncovered in the open up debate.

If You Think Trump Can’t Win In 2020

Above all this is something democrats should pay attention to. In short even some republicans think the president cannot be reelected.

Democrats Be Warned

Meanwhile many democrats say the president cannot win in 2020.

When you consider these tactics, for instance, those who doubt a Trump victory in 2020 might want to think about it.

Not Going To Tell You What To Think

Seems like everyone these days is telling us whether we should open up again. I am not going to do that.

Where Do Those Memes, Articles and Videos Come From?

Above all what’s especially relevant here are the kinds of information populating social media. Furthermore what’s the source of the information?

Even more I run down some of the sources of ‘news’ being shared.

Suddenly Sinister

Certainly information in support of opening up the country suddenly seems sinister. Learn more in Trump’s-Sinister-Open-Up-Campaign-Bob Davis Podcast 922.

Helpful or Campaign Propaganda?

The most noteworthy question is whether videos and stories on social media are helpful? Or are they cornerstones for the president’s re-election?

Partisan Silos Across The Nation

Above all reactions to the pandemic itself have become partisan.

Patterns and Examples

I’ll take you through two or three examples of seeding social media with partisan political videos and ‘news’.

(Editor’s note: One of the assertions in this podcast cites controversial reports the president does not read his daily intelligence briefings. Some say the story is false. So far the president has not specifically denied the story and said in 2016 he didn’t want daily intelligence briefings. Moreover the assertion has not been debunked as some have reported.)
