So important - Judd Legum explains: "WTF is going on with Trump's social media accounts?"

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1124661987546468352.html


1. WTF is going on with Trump's social media accounts?

Let me explain in plain English.


2. Social media is central to Trump's reelection strategy. He made the guy in charge of his 2016 social media strategy, @parscale, his 2020 campaign manager.

Trump is spending 500K per week on Facebook and Google and he doesn't even have an opponent yet.


3. Trump's strategy on social media, particularly Facebook, involves him breaking all of the platform rules.

They bragged about this last time -- suppressing African-American votes with fake information
This time they started targeting seniors w/fake promises about the border.


4. But after all the criticism of 2016 Facebook is more sensitive now about how its platform is being used for elections.

When I pointed out hundreds of rules violations by the Trump campaign, Facebook acted and took the ads down
UPDATE: Facebook admits it ran hundreds of Trump campaign ads that violate Facebook rules


5. This is what is unacceptable to Trump.

He needs to be a VICTIM of Facebook censorship so that it's IMPOSSIBLE for Facebook to enforce their own rules


6. So Trump took a routine announcement by Facebook it was permanently banning several accounts that traffic in racism and conspiracy theories and made it a HUGE DEAL.

It makes him the victim again.
Facebook banned dozens of liberal last year on thinner grounds w/no fanfare


7. Trump's goal is to make Facebook's rules UNENFORCEABLE.

In Trump's mind there is no difference between NBC and InfoWars and if Facebook tries to create one its CENSORSHIP.
That's the political space he needs to operate.


8. The problem is that the media is complicit. There is almost no coverage of how Trump is spending money online

I'm filling in the gap w/my newsletter, Popular Information. I spend hours reviewing the Trump's social media ads
You can subscribe at

9. A big part of the problem is the social media company themselves. Twitter, Facebook and Google won't enforce their rules.

They are scared are regulation and Trump is a very good customer. They have every incentive not to act.


10. In the meantime, what's happening online in advance of 2020 is shaping up to be even worse than 2016.

---------------

If you are on twitter you surely noticed all major right-wing twitter accounts are 100% aligned and pushing this "censorship" message hard for the past 24 hours at least. Harassment and bald threats at @CNN and other media is a part of what they are doing right now.

#4 political advert on FB last week: trump-aligned EpochTimes spreading Biden-Ukraine conspiracy

https://www.anotheracronym.org/newsletter/where-are-they-now/



Donald Trump’s campaign digital spending ticked up slightly over the past week, and he’s now spent over $8.5 million on Google and Facebook since the midterms.

....


We noticed The Epoch Times, an international news outlet with a pro-Trump bias was one of the top spenders of the week on Facebook. Last week, it ran hundreds of Facebook ads (some of which are still active) boosting Donald Trump and floating conspiracy theories about Joe Biden…and they even promised a free poster. Here are a few of their ads:

Chotiner rule: max 3 issues in any election (trump: Socialism, Late Term Abortion, Open Borders)

I found this commentary from Chris Matthews to be pretty interesting:

The Chotiner rule: voters can take up no more than three issues in any election



http://www.msnbc.com/transcripts/hardball/2019-04-24
Air date 4/24/19


Trump won Pennsylvania in 2016 with three winning arguments. He would do

something about illegal immigration. He would oppose abortion. And he

would not be Hillary Clinton.




It worked because a lot of blue collar voters have come to believe the

Democratic Party of their parents had grown too elite and took working

people for granted. As the Pittsburgh friend of mine said, people don`t

mind being used, they mind being discarded.



Well, heading into 2020, another trio of targets awaits Donald Trump. He`s

made clear he would readily hit the Democrats for open borders, late term

abortion and socialism.
The theory of why this trifecta would work was

propounded 70 years ago by a Beverly Hills public relations guy named

Murray Chotiner. He was Richard Nixon`s first campaign adviser.



The Chotiner rule was that voters can take up no more than three issues in

any election, the goal of any campaign should therefore be, to make sure

all three issues are about your opponent and that all three issues are

negative.
In the early 1950s, the Republicans destroyed the Democrats with

communism, corruption, and Korea. Those are three reasons why the eloquent

Adlai Stevenson never got to speak to the country from the Oval Office.



In the 1980s, the Republicans hit Michael Dukakis for letting lifer Willie

Horton out on weekend furloughs, refusing to fine teachers for not leading

their classes on a Pledge of Allegiance, and being a, quote, card carrying

member of the ACLU.



Well, that trio took Dukakis, his lead of 17 points in August down to an

eight-point deficit by election.



And right now, the one Democrat who might be bulletproof on the

Republicans` big three targets, illegal immigration, late term abortion and

socialism,
is a man who`s announcing his run tomorrow. Joe Biden can beat

Donald Trump in Pennsylvania. And I said that because maybe other

Democrats can, too, but Biden definitely can beat him there.



It`s worth thinking about this because without the Keystone State, the

Democratic Party is not getting through the Oval Office door.


----------------------------------------

If Dems had to make a Chotiner list aimed at trump, what would it be?

TREASON/BETRAYAL
CORRUPTION/LAWLESSNESS
DANGEROUS

alternatives? what are the 3 best??

FWIW, Dr. Jack Brown analyzes trump's dilated pupils

https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/969459517594394624.html

MEGA-THREAD: Body Langauge Analysis No. 4221: Why are Donald Trump's Pupils Intermittently So Large? - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence
#DonaldTrump #Pupils #LargePupils #Nonverbal #EmotionalIntelligence #bodylanguage #EQ

1/ Why are Donald Trump's pupils intermittently so large?

You probably haven't noticed, but President Trump's pupils are intermittently much larger than normal (the intermittent pattern is crucial).

2/ From a medical standpoint, this is not at all subtle or to be dismissed - on the contrary, it is glaring. Sirens Blaring. Red flashing lights.

I write this article with the expertise of both an ophthalmologist as well as a body language expert.

3/ In the image above Trump's pupils are approximately 8.0 mm. The dark-adapted eyes of a healthy 12-year-old may have 8.0 mm pupils - but in an unmedicated 70-year-old with healthy eyes, in a well-lit room - the statistical odds of such large pupil size approaches zero.

4/ Why is this significant? Dilated pupils, to this degree, would not occur in a 70-year-old, in a well-lit room unless there is either disease, injury or a pharmacologic cause present.

...

41/ Are Trump's large pupils caused by Systemic Drugs? (medications not used in eye drops [as mentioned above], but taken by mouth or by other means) - From a medical standpoint, this is highly probable.

42/ Here's a of list of the possibilities (of course, anesthesia and those labeled with "poisoning" and "overdose" don't apply):

5-HT2A receptor-mediated psychedelic drugs
5-Hydroxytryptophan
Adrenaline
Amphetamine

Attorney General MUST notify Congress if he disagreed, overruled, or blocked Mueller

Barr violated these rules.
He failed to appear for the House (when DOJ rules obligate informing Congress), and LIED to Crist and VanHollen about overruling Mueller, both in his letter and in person.

Maya Wiley: Barr obstructing by trying to force a criminal law standard on Congressional oversight

By blocking Congress from acting unless the high bar of criminal guilt has been met, he is flying in the face of the Congressional oversight role ---- which has no such standard.
