  • Democrat strategies

    Most of the conservatives here think people like Barbie, Alate, annabenedetti, etc... are just individuals who happen to be mistaken in their beliefs. Well, here is evidence that they are not. That they are a part of a national strategy to undermine all conservative points of view. This first started before the 1996 elections.

    What the heck?
    According to a new report, prior to the 1996 election — via which Bill Clinton faced a dubious 2nd term — the Democratic Party hatched a plan to inundate conservative talk radio show with callers who were sneakily in fact left-wingers. The mission? To push Democrat talking points.
    Evidence of the Talk Radio Initiative was discovered within documents at the Clinton Presidential Library, as noted by The Washington Free Beacon.
    According to the article, the effort was launched in light of the tremendous GOP victory of the 1994 midterms — for the first time since 1954, Republicans ruled the House.
    In an internal report from the time, the DNC laid it out:
    Democrats have largely ignored talk radio, and only since the last election, have we paid attention to how we can win back the airwaves and the discussion. We have now put our frustration into action.
    So their idea was to convert hardcore conservative radio listeners with liberal ideas?
    Yep. From the Free Beacon:
    [W]ith 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.
    Interesting plan.

    Michigan Democrats prepared a guide; here’s a sample:
    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. Democratic performance in the 1996 elections will no doubt be affected by the success or failure of this initiative.
    So how’d they do?:
    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.”
    Great jobs, ya stealthy spies.
    It’s a real shame — Wolverine State Dems spelled out how to evade capture:
    If you are afraid that producers are beginning to recognize your name and are weary of allowing you on the air, use an alias. For example, be Carol today, Sue tomorrow, and Debbie on Friday!
    According to the Free Beacon’s research, 23 states were involved in the mission, with 4,000 operatives on the ball.
    The records also revealed that the Clinton administration consistently kept tabs on and coordinated with TRI, considering it a crucial pillar of the administration’s plan to neutralize conservative radio in preparation for the 1996 election.
    As per the report, at the 1996 Democratic Convention, TRI set up three-hour training sessions for the agents.
    Because the left operates from what is a completely foreign paradigm to conservative thought you guys dismiss them as stupid. They are not. They just have a paradigm that is so foreign to conservative thought that it appears irrational and stupid. You guys dismiss them as dumb and lacking malice to the US to your own hurt.

    Here is Rush Limbaugh's response to this news. He identified them as "seminar callers" as soon as they started calling his show as they all said the same things from the same scripts.

    RUSH: I just got an email. This relates. I didn't have a chance to print it out 'cause I just now fixed a printer problem. Cookie got a note from somebody who has been made aware of some documents from the Clinton library, and these documents from Clinton library confirm that they were running seminar caller sessions. They were teaching people how to call this program to try to corrupt this program. And, of course, they couldn't because I recognize seminar callers.

    The point is this. Back in '92, '93, this show was it, folks. CNN was out there, but they were all on Clinton's side. There wasn't Fox News. There wasn't the blogosphere yet. And Bill Clinton went nuts with one radio show, a three-hour radio show, that's all the opposition he had, he went nuts about it.
    He called KMOX in St. Louis from Air Force One to complain about this program and how there was no Truth Detector after it. There was nobody to set the record straight. Here's the note. "My name is blah, blah. I'm a reporter for the blah, blah. We're working on a story regarding a confidential document that we uncovered from the Clinton library detailing White House involvement with the effort to train callers to call into conservative talk shows around the country. I know this is something Rush has always suspected, that he used to be identify these trained callers –" that's right. They were seminars callers.
    Here's my point. Bill Clinton went crazy -- well, that may be a bit of a -- Bill Clinton was totally bamboozled by one three-hour radio show. Blaming me for the Oklahoma City bombing, anything he could talk about. One radio show. And then, of course, there became more as Clinton's term began.
    Fox News started in late '96, '97. What is Trump up against? Trump is up against the entirety of the American Media, the entirety of it. He's up against everything but talk radio and Fox News, and half of Fox News is gone in terms of being anti-Trump. And all he's got is his tweets. That's all he's got, personally.

    He doesn't have a three-hour radio show. He doesn't have a show on Fox, and he can't because he's president. He will someday. But the point is Bill Clinton had the entirety of the mainstream media on his side defending him and attacking me and others in conservative media. But one three-hour radio show, were there people telling Bill, “You know, Bill, you need to shut up. Don't start complaining about Limbaugh on Air Force One going into St. Louis, don't do this kind of thing.”
    Nope. But here's everybody telling Trump, “You gotta stop responding, Mr. President, stop the tweeting.” Hell's bells, he does. He's up against an entire industry! Bill Clinton was up against one radio show for the first two to three years of his administration, first term presidency. One radio show. Then the other talk shows sprang up and the blogosphere and it became a full-fledged effort. But one three-hour radio show ticked off Bill Clinton.
    I gotta take a break. But stop and think about that. What Trump is up against there's not a Democrat walking this earth who understands the obstacles, the opposition, the efforts to destroy that Trump is facing every day.
    RUSH: I got the Clinton calling KMOX in St. Louis from Air Force One. In fact, that's audio sound bite number 32. That's all the way back in 1994. Can anybody say, "election meddling"? We now have it confirmed from documents in the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor in Little Rock that they were training people to call this program to sabotage it. Seminar callers! You know it. You've been listening here a long time. You've heard of these seminar callers. I can still spot them. They're still out there.
    When they happen to sneak past Mr. Snerdley and some of our guest screeners, they stand out like a sore thumb. Can anybody say, "election meddling"? They were meddling in the election, trying to sabotage this program. It had a political identity. But again, I just want to stress to you, folks, Bill Clinton was upset by one radio show, a three-hour radio show. There isn't a Democrat alive who has ever had to endure what Donald Trump has had to endure every day since the 16th of June 2015 when he announced.

    There's not a single one of them, much less a Republican, who could put up with any of this. Here's Clinton. He phoned in to Charles Brennan, the Charlie Brennan Show on KMOX St. Louis. He was heading into St. Louis, opening -- I don't know -- a new bus route, train route, new train station, some such thing, and he actually called KMOX on the morning show on the way to St. Louis. He was on Air Force One.
    CLINTON: After I get off the radio today with you, Rush Limbaugh will have three hours to say whatever he wants --
    BRENNAN: Would you like to leave a message?
    CLINTON: -- and I won’t have any opportunity to respond, and there’s no truth detector. You won’t get on afterwards and say what was true and what wasn’t!
    RUSH: It's a three-hour radio show! So here's Trump. Trump is in same situation, except he's not facing one three-hour radio show. He's got the entirety of the American news industry, the totality of the American news industry -- and his response to it is to tweet, to try to set the record, to correct the record. For all of you that are made nervous by it, get over it, because he's not gonna stop it, and he's gonna continue to punch down.
    I'm sure there are people on his staff telling him, "You know, you need to ignore John Legend. Who really cares?" But he's not gonna ignore people that are lying about him. He's gonna push back.
