Hillary's Message -- Trump's Campaign & Breitbart -- Read and HEED!!

Forward to anyone you choose.

Whenever you hear about a right-wing conspiracy theory somehow making its way into the mainstream of political dialogue, there's a good chance that Breitbart News had something to do with it.

Never heard of Breitbart News? It's a fringe website where there's no opinion too ugly, too divisive, or too outright crazy to be worth breathless promotion.

The one about President Obama being a secret Muslim born in Kenya? Breitbart was all over that "story."

Or maybe you heard about the time they attacked an opponent -- a conservative Republican, no less -- by calling him a "renegade Jew."

Why does this matter?

Donald Trump just hired Breitbart's executive director to be his new campaign CEO.

Now, we've had a conservative media in this country for a while. I don't always like what they have to say, but I respect their role and their right to exist.

Breitbart is something different. They make Fox News look like a Democratic Party pamphlet. They're a different breed altogether -- not just conservative but radical, bigoted, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy peddlers who never have been and never should be anywhere near the levers of power in this country.

But Donald Trump just gave them a broad new mandate to shape his campaign, his message, the future of the Republican Party, and quite possibly the country.

It goes without saying that we have to beat these people. But I want to beat them so decisively that their kind never rises again.

Doing that is going to take hard work, moral clarity, unshakeable determination.

Trump's New Chilling Team

If you did not have a chance watch yesterday's Rachel Maddow here or below do so. You would NOT believe what is going on with this ridiculous shift in Trump's team. He demoted rather mainstream Manfort and brought in the "CEO" manager of the sensationalist extremist right wing a guy named Bannon and a Republican pollster Kellyann Conway.

Rachel explains this move much better than I have time to do but Trump's campaign is now headed, in essence, by an extremist right wing baloney spin machine promoting ALL kinds of conspiracy theories that comprise it and a plethora of made up crap against most especially Cinton and Obama (the birthers and other lies) or any liberal Democrat who wants to hold office. Breitbart uses conspiratorialist views of radio shock jock Alex Jones as well and Trump listens to them. This explains a LOT!

They go after Hillary now with made up concoctions about her health or whether she sits on a pillow (no, I'm not kidding), they post fake MRI's of her brain and fake film of her by speeding it up to make her look like she has some kind of neurological disease. The film of her they sometimes use is like an early 20th century fast walking film as "proof" that she has a neurological disease and even mouth cancer. No, again, I'm not kidding. It's ALL total extremist baloney. Worse still is that Trump re-tweets junk from white supremacist advocates and white nationalists. These horrible humans USED to be the right wing fringe and NOT certainly mainstream Republicans they are now.

Breitbart/Drudge are AWFUL sites made up of phony UNtruths. It is consummately RIDICULOUS and even more ridiculous that the Republican candidate for the presidency uses these sites of lies and is now using it's manager, Bannon. The late Breitbart, who died young, was a right wing extremist and Bannon, the now "CEO" Manager of the Trump campaign took over Breitbart. It posts the phony sensationalist site of as well.

Trump goes to Alex Jones conspiracy theorist seen by Jones's right wing extremist niche market for his view points. This shows one how unqualified Trump is and that his campaign now is run by solely Trump as Trump and his right wing extremist lackeys that take only his orders. It is totally OUTRAGEOUS as it is volcanic.

They verbally indict Obama and Hillary for invading Afghanistan (it was invaded by Bush in 2001) and his moronic supporters like former Mayor Giuliani accuse Obama as the only president who has had terrorist attacks on his watch. Excuse me former Mr. Mayor I seem to remember 9/11 on Bush's and Giuliani's watch. Moreover, some of Breitbart's posts are not above pointed antiSemitic slurs against mainstream Republican figures like Billy Kristol and others.

This is the kind of crap with which Hillary is having to deal. Robbie Mook, Hillary's campaign manger, was interviewed by Rachel too. It is illuminating as she gives you a pointed understanding of who now surrounds and advises the deranged Trump. Chilling!
