This is #HowFakeNewsWorks:
* Make an accusation without basis
* Build a narrative around the accusation- With assumption of truth
* Make a definitive statement based on narrative
* Repeat statement as fact
Here is the #AssumptionAccusation by @RepSwalwell: "if you step back and ask why did the president direct Michael Cohen to lie, IF THAT'S WHAT HE DID, it’s to cover up a relationship that he had with Russia that is still ongoing today."
Here's the narrative on the #AssumptionAccusation: "That’s evidence of collusion There’s an entanglement with a country that is not our friend. I think some of the best evidence, if there’s a quid-pro-quo, the quo really started to heat up after the Helsinki conference, right?"

So I looked into the "House of Cards" and it's relation to what is about to happen. Let's start out with the common definition of a '#HouseOfCardsQ' : "A plan, organization, or other entity that is destined to fail due to a weak structure or foundation" @intheMatrixxx @412Anon87
2) Q-Group has referenced "House of Cards" 5 times. The first reference was 372 (373 on some). The context in the surrounding drops was relating to actual mil-operations taking place. ATL extraction, the congressional train derailment, & an extraction at Charles Degaulle Airport.
3) Drop 372 came in on December 18, 2017 and read:
House of cards.
12 deals rejected (today alone).
Panic in DC.
Enjoy the show.
So in context "House of Cards" seems to be referring to 'cards' that have been removed- thereby weakening the structure.

The lefty media is starting to supplant damage control articles. They have been letting the dimms down easy on the 'blue wave' talk for the past month and now they are starting to warm them up to the idea that the Mueller report will disappoint.…
Politico published a downer on Friday. “President Donald Trump’s critics have spent the past 17 months anticipating what some expect will be among the most thrilling events of their lives: special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report on Russian 2016 election interference,”
“They may be in for a disappointment.” That’s the conclusion reporter Darren Samuelsohn came to after speaking with defense lawyers involved in the case and “more than 15 former government officials with investigation experience.”

Here is an example of #HowFakeNewsWorks
Slate Misquotes Kavanaugh, Then Attacks Him over Its Lie.

The Sunday piece by Molly Olmstead is titled “Kavanaugh, Who Said He Had ‘No Connections’ to Yale, Was a Legacy Student.”…
2) So, Molly Olmstead from Slate quoted Kavanaugh as saying, under oath, that he had no connections to Yale and that he got in because he busted his butt.

She attacked/accused Kavanaugh for lying under oath, and blasted it out on their website as 'news'.
3) The point of 'fake news' propaganda outlets is to steer the mind. If they can tell a lie enough, your mind will absorb it and even if you later find out it's a lie, it still affects your thought.

Remember NYT = FAKE NEWS
This may have been what they were told as a follow-up to the anonymous op-ed that they published a few weeks ago. This is simply a wind-up article that has NO VALUE.
Let me correct myself, NO 'NEWS' value. It will certainly be valuable from the standpoint to winding up the dimms to say more stupid crap.
And since I think that we 'planted' the anonymous op-ed to stir the pot, I also think that this story was 'planted' in order to help move the needle on the patriotism of RR in the minds of the people. Time will tell.

I wonder how Paul Manafort likes having his entire career erased? Everything he had ever done up to the point of March 29, 2016, not even a memory- except the old charges from 10yrs ago. Now, every media report identifies him as- Former Trump campaign mgr.- #HowFakeNewsWorks
You see, this is the msm's way of connecting @realDonaldTrump to negative press because he has none of his own. They think that if they mention Trump's name enough in negative light, that people will believe he too is in trouble. That's ALL 'they' got.
They leave out that Manafort only worked for @realDonaldTrump for 144 days. They leave out that Manafort was 'planted' inside the Trump campaign, BECAUSE of his Russian connections, in order to lay the groundwork for the collusion case.

"I would certainly meet with Iran if they want to meet, I don't know that they are ready yet, they are having a hard time right now." @realDonaldTrump
2) "I do believe that they will probably end up wanting to meet. And I am ready to meet anytime they want to. And I don't do that from strength or from weakness. I think it is an appropriate thing to do. If we could work something out that is meaningful......
3).... not the waste of paper that the other deal was, I would certainly be willing to meet." Reporter: Do you have preconditions for that meeting? @POTUS: No preconditions, NO. They want to meet, I'll meet. Anytime they want, anytime they want. It's good for the country....
