The More Things Change, The More Democrats Cheat

Before there was social media, there was talk radio.

Dems Secretly Trained Thousands of Activists to Manipulate Media, Clinton Library Docs Show

The Democratic party developed an elaborate, multi-year operation in the 1990s that deployed thousands of activists to covertly mold public opinion using talk radio, according to documents from the Clinton Presidential Library.

The Democratic National Committee (DNC), with 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.

“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,” a 1995 TRI guide prepared by Michigan Democrats said. “Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.”

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.”

One of the things I noticed during the 2008 primaries and the general election was that pro-Obama talking points would appear simultaneously in comments across social media using nearly identical language. I first noticed it when Obama gave his Greatest Speech on Race EVER (the one where he threw his grandma under the bus while affirming his close relationship with Rev. Jeremiah Wright) when I noticed two different people commenting on two different blogs who both claimed to have been moved to tears just from reading a transcript of the speech. Later, I found a third one saying the same thing.

Not long after that I became a moderator at TC and I was able to see more evidence of coordination in the comments made by trolls. What has been seen cannot be unseen. Once I became aware of what was happening it became more and more obvious. Sometimes they worked in teams.

When John McCain (MHBIH) announced that he had chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate it caught the Obama campaign completely by surprise. The Obama trolls were uncharacteristically silent for nearly an hour, then all at once, they were singing in unison about a small-town mayor who lacked the experience to be POTUS. The Obama campaign obviously didn’t have any official talking points about Sarah Palin so the trolls didn’t know what to say at first.

All the stuff the Democrats accuse the Russians of doing in the last election is what the Democrats have been doing for years. That’s what makes this part ironic:

Bua credited then-first lady Hillary Clinton with coming up with the initiative, while he was hosting a TRI seminar for feminists at the 1996 convention, according to a National Review dispatch. Clinton’s approach to private actors manipulating public opinion through popular media has changed in the wake of the 2016 election. She has since claimed that “misinformation” by “domestic actors” on social media helped lead to her surprise loss to President Donald Trump.

“The big social media platforms know their systems are being manipulated by foreign and domestic actors to sow division, promote extremism and spread misinformation,” Hillary said at a June commencement address.

Democrats hate it when you beat them at their own game.

It was supposed to be MY turn!

    Oh, but it’s a VAST RIGHT WING CONSPIRACY to hold her husband accountable. Fucking bitch. I’ve never said that about Hillary, because I used to like her and politics is politics, but she’s gotten what she deserved. Twice.

    But in other happy news!

      Wonder if this was in today’s daily briefing sitting on her replica of the Resolute Desk in her Chappaqua basement?

      • Somebody says:

        Are we sure it’s a replica resolute desk? The Clintons made off with WH China and other stuff. Somehow I wouldn’t put it past them to slip a fake in the oval office and take the real thing…….but of course if they did, no reasonable prosecutor would indict because there was no intent 🙄

      I never thought about her for a second until she went after Bill’s sloppy seconds and tried to shame them.

      LOL. What a dumb ass.

    • Woke Lola says:

      Dangerous. I’m telling you. This is how it starts. Not that he has a chance, but other Democrats will now take this up. This is how it started in Nazi Germany with Jewish people.

      • lyn says:

        Democrats already started with the deplorables and dregs of society. White supremacy is a problem, because warped-out Democrats and caca media think it is. There were only 5,000 white supremacists in our country before Charlottesville. There are only 5,000 white supremacists in our country after Charlottesville.

  10. lateblum says:

    I was just watching the WGNTV 5 o’clock news. There is a blond 30-something (I’m being kind) woman who was reading the sports news. A story about a 112 y/o (black)man who was a guest at the White Sox game today. One of the respected black advocates had taken him to the game. It was this elderly man’s very first professional baseball game! So the bimbo who was reading the story decided, very unwisely I might add, to make an extemporaneous comment.
    She said,
    ”If you’re a baseball fan, how do you go through your entire life and not attend a baseball game?”
    Talk about no self awareness! White privilege was definitely on display. I don’t often notice this level of stupidity on local news. I must be living in a bubble. No. She is. I swear I don’t go looking for it. But even the news anchor, who I really don’t care for, said in a very kind way, “There are often circumstances. . . “
    I am smh’ing.

    • lateblum says:

      So, on the 6 o’clock news, they didn’t let her even read the story, much less comment on it.
      She may be a lovely person, but she is a danger to herself. And you know what? She is most likely a D so there will be no repercussions.

        • mothy2017 says:

          Youch. I take a little offense at hep c jokes. It’s a virus. When I got court ordered to rehab they did a blood panel. I tested positive for hep c. I was the safest person you can imagine. I said impossible. They wanted to put me on interfuron back in the 90’s I said no. I paid twice for independent testing. There is zero trace of hep c in my blood. I have the antibodies. I had hundreds of transfusions as a kid. I carry every antibody from everyone who donated blood.
          I came as close to suicide as a person can get. I had this weird stuff seep out of my baby blues. I don’t cry. I felt so dirty and ashamed. Sat and wept. This thing that could kill was running through my veins. I felt like garbage. They made me attend support groups. I had no access to real information. I was nearly forced into getting interfuron without an actual test for the virus. I knew in my heart I did not have it. Back then it cost tens of thousands for treatment. Rehab clients were hostage. I never had unsafe sex or used a needle. My odds were negligible, but it is a virus. No different than HIV or chicken pox. The people that have it shouldn’t be shamed. I was at South Beach Psychiatric on Staten Island when they called me into an office and told me I had this filthy bug. I felt so dirty. We had a few hours each day to roam. South Beach was a long term care psych campus. There were ball fields, stores, gyms, and a small forest. I went into the woods with the intent of climbing a tree and using my belt to jump from a branch. I hurt so bad with shame. Hep C was filth. I didn’t have the guts to jump. I climbed the tree, but wasn’t my thing. I had not told anyone. I was in rehab. It was not cool in 1995 to do lockdown. I was 100% alone. For real they would have had me take an experimental drug for “free”. I said no. Zero trace of hep c in my blood. None.
          I don’t like hep c jokes. I don’t like AIDS jokes. I remember to well the fear late 80’s/90’s. God’s Love We Deliver gets so little credit with regards to the early work. I wish I hadn’t been so afraid back then. I did many home visits, but I was always afraid people would think I had AIDS. I was so much less than I could have been.

          • Anthony says:

            Sorry you had that experience, good you didn’t have it. I too was falsely diagnosed with it, as were countless others. Fortunately for me, my Dr ordered more testing which concluded I was clean. Then I was offered interferon ‘as a prophylactic’ to which I promptly responded ‘No thanks, fuck off’ . Government drug testing should be criminalized.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    Between Vodkapundit, Twitter….following the debate…. dh’s poker night was over so I went downstairs to make sure he turned on the debate so he could yell at the tv. My goodness, the Dems are a mess. He was watching and not yelling. Weird, never seen him eye roll so quietly before, lol.

          Would bank robbery count if no gun was used? Burglary? Asking for a friend.

          • Mt.Laurel says:

            I am sure those poor burglars and robbers will be excused for their momentary loss of control and rash behavior. Especially when the all new definition of violence. As long as the don’t go pointing any fingers at people. Then they might be considered to be setting off abstract triggers. That is even worse than old fashioned violence.

    This comment was perfect. All Dem candidates have the same idea: “Vote for me, you planet-killing racist, so I can take your stuff.”

      LOL, I’ve seen that all day retweeted, and it’s so true. When the Dems lost in 2004 against Boooosh, we didn’t scream at the sky. Somewhere between 2004 and 2008, we got Woke. I mourn for the demise of the party of JFK, and if you believe the tinfoilers, probably killed him.

    This month’s full Moon rises on the night of Friday, September 13, and reaches peak fullness at 12:33 a.m. EDT on the 14th.

    Yes, that’s right—the brilliant Harvest Moon makes its annual appearance on Friday the 13th this year! What a clash of lore! Look skyward on Friday night for the best view of the shining Full Harvest Moon (but watch out for black cats and open ladders, too).
