Here's an actual historian documenting the GOP strategy to win southern states. This is actual facts and evidence Lyle. And to be fair, it does explain why all the racist white fuckers vote Republican now, doesn't it?
Of course you'll never read any of this what with your well known hostility to facts and evidence.
Weird lack of actual Trump news here often. Anyhoos here is what Japan has to say about his classy way of showing concern for US citizens today
Self-promotion: Trump boasts of rally crowd size during hospital visit to console Texas massacre survivors
WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump knew just how to raise the morale of medical staff recovering from last weekend’s mass shooting in Texas: boast to them about the size of his campaign rally in the city.
Footage of Trump bragging at the University Medical Center in El Paso on Wednesday surfaced Thursday.
In the clip, which was shot by a bystander and aired on KFOX14 television, a jovial Trump is seen praising medical staff at the hospital, telling them “they’re talking about you all over the world.”
But he then starts reminiscing about a re-election campaign rally he held in El Paso in February and ridicules Democratic opponent Beto O’Rourke, who is from the border city, and who held a counterrally the same day.
“That was some crowd,” Trump says of his event, claiming there were also “twice as many outside” his arena.
“Crazy” O’Rourke, the president then says scornfully, “had like 400 people in a parking lot.”
The issue of who had the bigger crowd on that February day has been a frequent matter of concern for Trump.
Critics piled into the president after Wednesday’s trip to El Paso, where 22 people were shot dead, and to Dayton, Ohio, where nine were killed, accusing him of using victims and first responders as backdrops for his self-promotion.
The White House described Trump’s trip, which took place mostly behind closed doors, as a bid to console survivors and emergency workers in the two cities.
However, the event was marred by street protests against Trump, as well as his decision to attack Democratic opponents throughout the day on Twitter and during his few public comments.
White House officials said journalists were mostly kept away from Trump because they didn’t want to treat the hospital visits as “photo-ops.”
However, Trump and his press team quickly released their own official pictures of him grinning and doing the thumbs up with staff and patients.
The White House also released a campaign-style short video, set to dramatic music, that focuses almost entirely on Trump shaking hands with groups of people in the hospitals or posing for pictures with onlookers.
Goes to visit shooting victims and Communities..makes campaign adds, attacks political foes like a school kid and talks about crowd sizes..inside the Hospital. Sir you are missing some common components.
A U.S. Foreign Service officer with nearly a decade of experience working for the State Department resigned Thursday in protest of President Donald Trump and his administration’s “toxic agenda.”
Chuck Park, whose most recent duties focused on trade development with British Columbia, explained his decision to step down in a searing opinion piece published Thursday in The Washington Post.
“I’m ashamed of how long it took me to make this decision,” Park wrote. “My excuse might be disappointing, if familiar to many of my colleagues: I let career perks silence my conscience. I let free housing, the countdown to a pension and the prestige of representing a powerful nation overseas distract me from ideals that once seemed so clear to me. I can’t do that anymore.”
Park condemned the Trump administration on several foreign policy actions, including its defense of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in regard to journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.
Though he was one of dozens of State Department workers to sign an internal dissent memo in 2017 objecting to Trump’s Muslim ban, Park said it wasn’t enough. He felt compelled to quit....
oh...and this y'all forgot to mention
- The Pentagon inspector general issued a report to Congress saying that the Islamic State is again growing in power in Syria and Iraq, with approximately 14,000 to 18,000 militants.
- The report specifically said President Donald Trump's decision to rapidly draw down troops in Syria and pull diplomatic staff from Iraq increased instability and allowed the militancy to regroup.
- Former Special Presidential Envoy Brett McGurk, who resigned following the drawdown announcement, has repeatedly warned of this scenario, saying that Trump's policies would lead to chaos and "an environment for extremists to thrive."

A report from the Pentagon inspector general found that President Donald Trump's decision to rapidly pull troops out of Syria and divert attention from diplomacy in Iraq has inadvertently aided the Islamic State's regrouping in Syria and Iraq.
The Department of Defense's quarterly report to Congress on the effectiveness of the US Operation Inherent Resolve mission said that "ISIS continued its transition from a territory-holding force to an insurgency in Syria, and it intensified its insurgency in Iraq" — even though Trump said ISIS was defeated and the caliphate quashed, The Wall Street Journal reported.
Many officials and experts have repeatedly warned that a rapid US withdrawal from Syria would enable ISIS to regroup into an insurgency after their battlefield defeats by the US-led coalition. ..
Yes Kirkland surprising absolutely no one you were wrong about the Confederate flag.
Oh it's a "myth" when a History Professor from Vanderbilt (who happens to be black) says what happened, but when a white guy from Princeton says what you so desperately want to be true it's "an actual historian" .... Interesting that
Mmmmmm.... That is delicious and Lindsey Graham says it's just the tip of the iceberg.
I noticed the timing of McCabe and Stzrok's lawsuits....almost like they want to get ahead of something or delay the release of something in hopes that the narrative will change and everyone will forget.
Sedition, treason... Drip, drip, drip. All roads lead back to not only Clinton but Obama. It'll be slow but justice will be done.

That baby's parents are dead due to Trump and the media who support him using immigration conspiracy theories to win votes.
Here's the facts about this Vanderbilt professor Lyle:
The Prager U video features Carol Swain, a now-retired Vanderbilt University professor. Right Wing Watch has written about her path from being a respected, if controversial, scholar to becoming a Religious Right culture-war propagandist hanging out with the likes of David Barton and Dinesh D’Souza. She has also promoted the work of far-right crank author Cleon Skousen, a favorite of Glenn Beck’s.
Historian Kruse responded to the Prager U video in 2018, challenging its “deeply ahistorical” arguments and false “facts.” Among the gems Kruse uncovered was a piece from one of Swain’s earlier, more serious, books— “The New White Nationalism in America”—in which Swain described “the Republican Party’s adoption of a ‘southern strategy’ that eventually enabled it to transform itself into a majority party after decades of minority status.”
Oddly enough, Swain doesn’t quote her own work in that Prager U video, which has more than 6 million views.
The same year Swain did the Prager U video, the right-wing Weekly Standard noticed that she had seemingly lost interest in being a serious scholar. She now writes Sean Hannity-endorsed screeds and appears at right-wing events, denouncing separation of church and state, trashing Black Lives Matter, calling liberal churches “agents of Marxism” and warning that liberals are out to steal children’s hearts and minds. Swain is what the Weekly Standard called “a thorny nationalist” on immigration, and she has urged Congress to “flex its muscles” and close what she calls a “loophole” of birthright citizenship guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.
So this professor you're citing after a frantic google has actually confirmed that the GOP used a southern strategy to win white racist votes. Great job Lyle, you've made my argument for me.
If you want to bet and lose even more money (I'm not going to even bother asking whether you've paid the poor black folks the money you owe them) we could bet on whatever this latest conspiracy rubbish is. But you won't do that either will you. Is the stuff about the Page warrant still on your little shelf? All the bullshit you were fed about that and you were convinced it was going to mean arrests and whatever. Whatever this latest thing is is just more of the same. We can bet if you like.

As for Carter Page....so he's a Russian spy or working WITH Russia is he? Is that what you're saying?
DOJ Documents Show Carter Page Helped FBI Catch Russian Spies
Seems a dubious charge to me considering he was helping the FBI in 2013 against (checks notes)....Russians
