Sometime threats don't work and can even backfire.

" Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, confirmed Thursday that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke contacted her after her vote against a health care bill earlier this week. The conversation reportedly involved threats of administrative retribution against her home state. " ......

" Murkowski is not without leverage in the dispute. As the chair of the Senate’s Energy and Natural Resources Committee, Murkowski will be able to control nomination hearings for Interior Department posts. A meeting to confirm a series of appointments to Zinke’s department was postponed Thursday, the committee announced. A spokesperson claimed that the delay was due to scheduling uncertainty.

And Murkowski is also the chair of an appropriations subcommittee centered on the Interior Department.

Concerns have also been raised that Zinke’s actions could prompt a review from the department’s inspector general. At least one Democratic congressman said that he would request an investigation into Zinke’s potential threats."

And she voted against the Skinny Plan too.

How low can this administration go? Probably lower than "hell."

2. Here's the perfect example of how the Hard Left uses innuendo.

"...the conversation REPORTEDLY involved..."

"...one Democratic congressman said that he would request an investigation into Zinke's POTENTIAL threats."

All of that adds up to dick.

7. "adds up to dick"

 

and that is what this administration has been getting from the Senate, dick.

And if you read the article, Zinke had the same conversation with Alaska’s other GOP senator, Dan Sullivan. Nice way to make enemies out of your "friends."

9. There's enough wiggle room in that article to fly a fucking Boeing Dreamliner through.

And that's pretty much what the Hard Left media does every day... give us "reportedly" and "on condition of anonymity" with a heaping dose of innuendo.

Using those tactics, the press could make up anything they ever wanted in order to keep the fish schooling in the right direction. What you all don't understand is that the fish ain't schoolin' like they used to. Well I take that back... the Hard Left swims in the same direction, in lock-fin, but that's why the change that was once on the horizon is now wrapped around you like air.

63,000,000 voting Americans ain't taking "anonymous sources" or "reportedly" or "some people are saying" and the other types of innuendo that the Hard Left pushes as a staple of their information diets any longer. And that number is growing.

Hold on; it's going to be a wild ride.

13. Seems like today, history has caught up to the Hard Left, and the innuendo peddlers.

Your anonymous sources, and people "close to" or who "have knowledge" without the balls to be named are soon going to be passe, and by necessity. People ain't listenin'.

6. Oh Dexter don't worry your little head about it

Go on believing in your Orange Trump clown king with all you have. If you hold onto it tight enough ... it has to be true. Just keep saying:

"Trump is my king, I will question nothing... "

repeat 10 times and then 10 times again before you go to bed each night. Surely this will help with any silly doubts that might creep into your fantasy land world.

8. To cons, real news is "bullshit fake news"

 

It really gets bad when the cons former favorite news source, "Breathfart News", is starting to be labeled by cons as a Fake news source too.

And it was reported in the Alaska Dispatch News.
