Reddit might be able to delete its Trumpist subreddits but can't stop Trump's arrest #ResignNowTrump

Yesterday r/The_Donald group got banned by Reddit. Not so easy for the rest of us. x In 2017, we used subreddit algebra to dissect r/The_Donald and filter out commenters’ interest in politics.

Trump: “Safety might happen at a level like safety has never happened before”

Trump both condemned and supported contradictory positions today during his presser. Nothing new, but unlike his campaign rallies, he gets refuted in real time. What national biowarfare suicide looks like.  Trump said his CDC director was ‘misquoted.’ Then his CDC director said he was ‘accurately quoted.’ x 2 months in the dark: the increasingly damning timeline…

What might next happen if an Iran invasion moves forward

Casus Belli arguments will emerge and they will be conditioned by disinformation of a sort to which we have been accustomed by the relentless falsehoods and lies. MSM will be complicit.
