1. This Danielle Pletka op ed on why she's more afraid of Biden than Trump has been much dunked on -- expertly & hilariously so by @petridishes & @dandrezner -- but it does help clarify limits Democrat's efforts to win over disaffected Republicans. washingtonpost.com/opinions/i-can…
2. The thing is Pletka is very, very right wing. I mean used to work for Jesse Helms. She says she didn't support Trump in 2016 but the fact is she also didn't support Clinton and called herself #NeverHillary that year. Image
3. Obviously Biden has had some success in winning over moderates and disenchanted Republicans, but in 2020 anyone of that stripe who hasn't already jumped ship is not going to. What we're left with is people like Pletka who don't like Trump personally but are like his policies

About 25 percent of Bernie's voters were #NeverHillary in 2016. Now they have a lot more choices. Can he win without them? (Spoiler: yes, but his coalition is likely to look different.) 53eig.ht/2DVDW3q
Of the states Sanders won last time, 8 were because of #NeverHillary voters. In the more conservative states in particular (e.g. Indiana and West Virginia) he may not replicate that success this time around.
Contrary to the stereotype, the #NeverHillary voters were largely *not* leftist voters who thought Clinton was too conservative. They were mostly moderate and conservative Democrats, or independents and Republicans who chose to vote in the Democratic primary.

OK my @medium account got "caught in the spam filter" & has been restored so let me try this #thread again. I've been working for several months on a series of blogs explaining trolling & botting tactics used by 4chan during the election. #ContentWarning: medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…
Several months ago @elimisteve from @PursuanceProj found a series of pastebins and sent them to me. 4chan trolls studied learned graphic design software to make memes, memetic warfare and botting to troll the election. medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…
The 1st part is an 8chan thread by someone who claimed to have worked in the marketing & advertising industry. The explain various components of effective graphic design & instructions for /pol/ to “normalize” their message to blend in with the normies. medium.com/@erin_gallaghe…

Ok time to sound off politically. I am not going to take sides. I remain firmly #NeverTrump but also #NeverHillary. So take that into acct.
1. There is a sound basis for Trump’s position on trade. He is going about it incorrectly and he is unlikely to stick with it but .....
2. I do believe Ricardo on trade (somewhat surprised I recalled the theory and its name correctly lol). But without doing advanced reasearch, I suspect it falls apart in a world with multiple players and massive potential excess supply and one very large buyer.
3. It is incontrovertible that China, India and other nations protect their local mkts with protected sectors, high tariffs, non-tariff barriers, etc. Japan has the lowest tariffs out there, but the non-tariff barriers are massive (regs, distribution channels, etc.)

*Thread* (1/75) Clinton & Co are directly, irrefutably responsible for President Trump and the epic implosion of the Democratic party.
(2/75) Hillary has a long record of choosing self service over public service; this time her personal ambitions delivered us Donald Trump.
(3/75) Wall st banks gambled away the pensions, homes, & livelihoods of millions of Americans; Hillary & co gambled away the US presidency.
