Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816

The Northwest Sportsman’s show is the backdrop for breaking news! Mueller’s big fishing expedition is over. We’ll talk about it in Fishing Expedition Ends-Bob Davis Podcast 816.

Attorney General’s Report of A Report

While the media melts down and the rest of the world yells at each other about the ‘details’ of four pages from the Attorney General. it’s time to vent.

A Political Minority Monopolizes Our Time For Nothing

These days it sure seems like we are at the mercy of political types. People who spend all day clicking on, watching and listening to any show doling out details Washington’s latest intrigue.

Real People Looking At Boats Seems Like A Good Idea

What a breath of fresh air to join Minnesotans at the Sportsman’s show. Fishing rods and reels. Rifle scopes. Resorts. Meat smokers and boats. Lots of boats. A rite of spring in these parts.

No CNN MSNBC or Fox Equals Bliss

Moreover not a single TV in the place tuned to CNN or Fox, or MSNBC and their incessant coverage of every scratch of Robert Mueller’s ass and Donald Trump’s anguished tweets in response. Or the bleating of the disappointed democrats. Or the “I told you so’s” from republicans.

All The Predictions Turn Out To Be Wrong

Especially relevant is our need to be delivered from the heroes of political news addicts, and their constant uninformed predictions.

Trump’s Revenge

Finally for now, President Trump can take a well deserved victory lap in the form of tweets and mass emails, or the next hour long press conference, In addition his supporters deserve a moment of bliss as for once their sworn enemies are left reaching or speechless.

Time For All The Politicians And Political Addicts To STFU

In conclusion it seems to me that our biggest problem is our fixation on the intrigues of the federal government in Washington, and our worthless politicians in state capitols, county commissioner offices and city hall.

Fishing Anyone?

Suddenly going fishing sounds like a pretty good idea.

Russia Targets American Politics Again?-Bob Davis Podcast 809

Get ready. A sustained disinformation attack on the top democrat presidential candidates is already in progress. That’s the new story line. These days you can’t be sure. We’ll talk about it in Russia Targets American Politics Again?-Bob Davis Podcast 809.

Breaking News From Politico

Most noteworthy is a series of stories Politico has done about ‘hacking’ the US electoral process. The latest is an article which sources data analysts and other experts. Especially relevant? A new charge by experts. Russia is back to its old tricks.

We take a look at the story and the charge in In Russia Targets American Politics Again?

A Wide Ranging Effort

Natasha Korecki says her Politico story shows a wide ranging effort aimed at Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. She reports certainly it is up and running with signs foreign state actors are behind some of it.

It’s Happening Again

According to Politico Weaponized Propaganda picks at the most sensitive issues in our public discourse. Furthermore that propaganda is being pushed across a variety of platforms. It’s happening again.

Wait! Not All Of It Is Organized!

Wait though. Not all the activity is organized. In contrast, a lot of it appears to be regular Joe’s sharing stuff they think is funny or relevant on their feeds.

Sources For Politico Article Include Democrat Operatives

Finally sources for this story include Brett Horvath who has worked for the Mayor of Seattle as well as other operatives who have worked for democrats including Hillary Clinton. Or companies like Storyful who spy on reporters.

No Conclusive Evidence

Even more Korecki writes researchers and others cannot conclusively point to actors behind “the coordinated activity”.

We’re All Trolls Now

Maybe I’m churlish but it seems to me the writer, sources and Politico itself are getting a lot of mileage out of this. The principles in the story are sharing the story on their own feeds. Just slightly Troll Like, don’t you think? Maybe the Russians have switched sides this time!

Republican Dark Future-Raising The Stakes-Bob Davis Podcast 780

The political blame game has only just begun for republicans. What’s wrong and what is the future for the GOP. We’ll talk about it in Republican Dark Future-Raising The Stakes-Bob Davis Podcast 780.

A Dark Future For So Called Conservatives

Most noteworthy, and not surprisingly talking heads who predicted the GOP would hold the house (they were wrong) are now telling anyone who will listen how to fix the failed republican effort. The real truth is the republican party has a dark future.

A Deal With The Devil

What happened? Let’s be honest. Republican Moderates made a deal with a reality TV host and real estate developer. He would be the standard bearer and they would run things. Turned out neither was very good at either.

Reality Show Government

With only two major legislative accomplishments to its credit, the Trump administration has become a reality show played out on Twitter and Cable news.

All Things Republican Trumpism Is Not

Meanwhile the president ‘fixes’ everything and ‘drains the swamp’ with executive orders, which of course can be reversed. Free trade? Not this president.

Supply Side Economics? Nope. Cutting spending? Not gonna happen. Repealing the Affordable Care Act? You can forget about that. Now, growing concerns about a possible recession and corporate debt, actually all kinds of debt, even though the president says the economy is “Booming”.

A Republican Is Burying Us In Deficits?

Demand we “Build A Wall” and refuse to pay for it? Deploy United States Troops within the borders of the USA? Adding Trillions to the budget deficit? Yep. Failing to solve immigration, education and health care issues? Sure. Dear readers and listeners! Is this really what a conservative republican president is supposed to do? I’ll ask the question in Republican Dark Future-Raising The Stakes-Bob Davis Podcast 780.

Campaigning On Thin Air

In conclusion, republicans in 2018 had to defend this president or get out. In the end those that stayed to face the music had to campaign on slogans and defending Trumpism because there weren’t many accomplishments and even less money. Meanwhile well funded democrats sold a plan and got the vote out. I guess something beats nothing.

But Hey, It’s Not Hillary

It’s hard to hear but republicans are another side of the same political coin. Collectivist policies and the expansion of government and executive power to the extent that it may already be democratic socialism seems to be the result no matter which party is in control.

In the end, Republicans are just as responsible for it as democrats.

But. At least it’s not Hillary, right?
