There Is A Silver Lining In Trump’s Biggest Mistake

President Trump will never make a bigger mistake than the one he made one second after he was sworn in by not firing all of the Clinton and Obama leftovers. That mistake has been a major disaster for him and the country, but something good can come from it.

Assuming Trump will replace Democrats with decent civil servants before he leaves office the next Democrat president will waste no time firing every one of them. Note that Trump has to go much deeper than the Department of Justice:


Last night, Fox News' Brit Hume kicked off his show by criticizing the media for "news stories reporting that the Bush administration had considered firing all 93 U.S. attorneys across the country [that] failed to mention that that is exactly what Bill Clinton did soon after taking office back in 1993."

This argument has been making its way around the conservative echo chamber. Wrote Brent Baker: "The broadcast network evening newscasts, which didn't care in 1993 about the Clinton administration's decision to ask for the resignations of all 93 U.S. attorneys, went apoplectic Tuesday night in leading with the 'controversy,' fed by the media, over the Bush administration for replacing eight U.S. attorneys in late 2006."

In light of all this, I thought it was important to compare the two cases.

The Washington Post laid it out like this: "Although Bush and President Bill Clinton each dismissed nearly all U.S. attorneys upon taking office, legal experts and former prosecutors say the firing of a large number of prosecutors in the middle of a term appears to be unprecedented and threatens the independence of prosecutors."
So Is This U.S. Attorney Purge Unprecedented Or Not?

The WAPO was right. Mueller & Company sure as hell hung onto their independence.

It took Democrats decades to put America-haters and traitors in positions of authority. They do not have the time to displace loyal Americans incrementally a second time. Democrats know they have to do it immediately if they want to get back to where they are at today let alone advance their global government agenda.

Conservatives informing the voting public is the silver lining. Americans will not get any help from major media, but they can use the Internet to ask voters “Do you want to go back to the Muellers, the Comeys, the John Brennans, and the rest of their kind.” That is what is in store for the country when the next Democrat is president.

Picking up seats in the midterms will not rattle the status quo. What good does it do to when Establishment Republicans and Democrats rotate majorities in both chambers while bureaucrats continue to run the country?

Finally, print journalism’s influence is gone forever. The time has come to rein-in TELEVISION. Eliminating the advertising tax deduction will put a damper on television propaganda without touching the First Amendment.

I would go further. Teach young children how to watch television. That is teach them how to spot the lies, the propaganda, etc. The material for homework assignments is unlimited. Homework would include watching a news show, or an entertainment show, and identify three government lies. New World Order and environmental garbage spliced into everything on television would keep the kids busy. By the time the gumps are in highschool they would forever be immune from the ravages of TVD (Television Disease).

Eliminating the advertising tax deduction applies to every venue:

The digital world has been flooded with concerns in recent months over the power of the giant tech companies, particularly Google and Facebook, over the flow of information.

Conservatives in America have expressed alarm, and in Europe, a leader of the Brexit movement has accused Facebook of “doctoring” the news.

Now Congress has been told that the “digital ecosystem” that exists today is unworkable.

“Two companies dominate the market. The privacy of internet users is under assault. The revenue model that sustained journalism is broken. The ad platforms are manipulated by foreign adversaries. Secrecy and complexity are increasing as accountability is diminished,” said the Electronic Privacy Information Center in a statement delivered to members of Congress.

“It would be foolish to imagine that the current model is sustainable.”

The statement was delivered to members of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Digital Commerce & Consumer Protection in connection with a hearing on the “ecosystem.”

The letter explained: “Today’s digital advertising techniques are very different from traditional advertising models. In the analog world, consumers could readily identify the placement of an ad, the source and its purpose. There was little need for advertisers to gather personal data from users. Perhaps most critically, advertising supported editorial content. Advertising made possible the publication of daily news. Traditional advertising sustained a healthy ecosystem that also made possible the production of news without government subsidy.
The advertising tax deduction is a government subsidy because everybody is forced to pay for it.

Much of that has changed,” the letter said.

“There are many problems today with the Digital Advertising Ecosystems – profiling and tracking of internet users, increasing concentration of providers (Google and Facebook), the loss of support for editorial content, discriminatory practices and redlining, preferencing the advertiser’s products over competitor’s, and political ads purchased by foreign advertisers intended [to] undermine democratic elections.

“It didn’t have to be this way. More active regulation by the government could have sustained digital advertising models that were good advertisers and businesses, and good also for consumers, journalism, and democracy.”
Sustaining democracy is not a good thing regardless of how it is done.

The letter explained an early system, called DoubleClick, protected consumers’ privacy, but it later was acquired by Google, and the Federal Trade Commission approved the deal despite EPIC warnings about one company having “access to more information about the internet activities of consumers than any other company in the world.”

“Much of what we predicted happened. Google broke many of the agreements to protect privacy that DoubleClick had established,” the group’s letter said.

The next “great damage” was done when Google moved from contextual advertising to behavioral advertising.
Socialists have been dictating behavior for decades. Legislating love is their political agenda. Whatever else the Internet does it provides freedom of speech for everyone for the first time in history. That is what scares the government. Government censoring free speech is the goal. Everything else is double-talk bullshit.

Contextual advertising simple shows products in newspapers or on the web. But behavioral advertising “targets the consumer directly. It relies on deep profiles. It provides no benefit to content providers, such as news organizations. In fact, the … model attacks the revenue model that has sustained news organizations in the United States since the early days.”

This system uses those algorithms that consider age, race, religion, nationality and other factors.

The letter says while advertising should provide consumers with information about products, Google and Facebook now “are providing advertisers information about consumers who have become the product.
It was always that way.
