.#MAGA[ts], this is how you get played.

@EliseStefanik (and @kayleighmcenany, of course) apparently thinks that #leadership is complaining and #lying and shrieking and NOT about proposing solutions.

But then, she's a #Republican. #Governing is NOT what the @GOP does.
.#MAGA[ts], so what's ACTUALLY going on.

@POTUS @JoeBiden spend some time with @FLOTUS because it was her birthday.

No one has a right to begrudge them that. If you have a problem with it, sit and spin. Not everything is about you nor is it always your business.
.#MAGA[ts], the deal with #gasprices, as has been explained, many times, is that we are seeing a seasonal rise in prices that were, for a time, aggravated by the recent #ColonialPipeline hack that resulted in the closing of the pipeline.
.#MAGA[ts], in general, #POTUS has little influence on #gasprices, regardless of who or which party, and there is no #gasshortage2021.

The current #inflation is aggravated by the fact that we're coming out of a #pandemic, during which inflation was exceptionally low.
.#MAGA[ts], with respect to #economics and related issues like #inflation, it usually takes the sitting #POTUS's policies much longer than @POTUS @JoeBiden has been in office to be an influence.

Again, #Republicans want to fix blame - not find #solutions.
.#MAGA[ts], #unemployment must also be considered with respect to the current situation with respect to the #pandemic. It was almost 15% a year ago - when #Trump was in office - and you heard no complaints from #Republicans like @EliseStefanik.
.#MAGA[ts], as we come out of this period of #economic #instability caused by the #pandemic and #Trump and the #Republicans inept response to it - including lying to you repeatedly about it - we can expect fluctuations in the numbers.
.#MAGA[ts], in response to the situation, @POTUS @JoeBiden and @TheDemocrats passed the #AmericanRescuePlan. NOT ONE #Republican voted for it.

#Biden and the #Democrats proposed the #AmericanJobsPlan.

#Republicans are uniformly against it and consistently lie about it.
.#MAGA[ts], with all the complaints and show-boating that #Republicans are doing, what #SOLUTIONS are they proposing? What plans for #recovery and #growth have they put before you, as voters and citizens, to consider?

The answer, of course, and effectively speaking, is "none."
.#MAGA[ts], the entire #Republican "#strategy," such as it might be, is to keep you stirred up over "#culture" and "#wedge" issues that, really, don't matter much - if at all - to your individual daily lives: Plastic potato toys, #DrSeuss, "#CancelCulture," and "#woke."
.#MAGA[ts], next on @EliseStefanik's list is #nationalcrises, separate from #immigration.

But what "#crises" are we talking about, here, and what specific things is @POTUS @JoeBiden doing or not doing that #Republicans would do differently - and WHY?
.#MAGA[ts], there's what's going on in #Israel, of course, but that is not a #nationalcrisis for the #UnitedStates - face it.

As one of #Jewish descent, I'll point out, again, that, in general, neither this country nor its "#Christians" gives a SHIT about the #Jews or Israel.
.#MAGA[ts], in terms of #economics and #geopolitics, this country cares about #Israel because of its proximity to the #oil-producing countries. That's what #Republican politicians care about, and they play the phony "#Christians" who's only concern about Israel has to do with...
...#Israel's alleged role in ridiculous "#Christian" #apocalyptic literature.

Because those are the only arguments #Republicans have, what this country does in response to issues in #Israel has always been skewed.

But that's not a "#crisis."
.#MAGA[ts], responding to events elsewhere in the world as if they were "#crises" - especially when a #Democrat is in the #WhiteHouse - is part of the #Republican strategy when it comes to playing you.

Which brings us to #immigration.
.#MAGA[ts], one more time: There is NO #BorderCrisis.

What we're seeing is what has been happening on the border for decades.

With respect to this year, #Republicans speak of "misguided policies," but don't detail what those are or how THEY would deal with it...
...even while many of them will admit, in rare moments of candor, that the factors involved are quite complex, frequently shifting, and not uncommonly out of our control, with respect to what CAUSES folks to head for our borders.
.@MAGA[ts], #Republican responses to #immigration have long been designed to play to your fears and bigotries, and that's to keep you fighting with the rest of us over crumbs while the @GOP and their leash-holders make off with the bakery.

.#MAGA[ts], @EliseStefanik posted that, with all that's going on, @POTUS @JoeBiden should be exhibiting #leadership by NOT taking a little time for his wife on her birthday.

And having no sense of #irony, @kayleighmcenany retweeted it.
.#MAGA[ts], pointing out #Trump's lack of #leadership during his term and @EliseStefanik's inability to be a #leader, now, is not #whataboutism because the current administration IS #leading and is doing good work for the people - including YOU.

#Republicans just play you.
.#MAGA[ts], I think the real problem for you is that you might actually bother to examine how things like the #AmericanRescuePlan and the #AmericanJobsPlan will benefit you, directly or indirectly.

But you're not happy unless it's JUST you.

It's way past time to grow up.

@SenTedCruz .@SenTedCruz (@TedCruz), I couldn't beyond a few seconds into this bit of #propaganda, #Renfield, because this was not #reporting, #news, or #journalism.

This was a #FoxNews #MAGA[t] leading with #Republican/#Trump #talkingpoints and you nodding, stupidly, in agreement...
@SenTedCruz @tedcruz ...and following the script.

In other words, this is just you playing the #MAGA[ts], #Renfield - again.

There were no "emails showing Facebook acting as state agency on behalf of the federal government."

The #FauciEmails is another point of phony #outrage for #Republicans.
@SenTedCruz @tedcruz .@tedcruz (@SenTedCruz), what's especially hysterical about this clip, your tweet, and your claim, #Renfield, is that you hypocritically make this claim about a @FoxNews piece and it's #FoxNews that acts as a #propaganda outlet for the @GOP - and always has.

.@RealCandaceO is a #liar who makes a living as a #propagandist for the Fright-Wing Shriek Machine.

She's easy enough to expose. Sadly, here level of #DunningKruger is probably only as high as the @realDonaldTrump misfits who won't check her claims.

From the article:

"Owens appears to be implying that the number of deaths that resulted from COVID-19 is being artificially inflated. "
"The implication is that these individuals are being counted as coronavirus deaths even if the illness did not cause the fatality. But this isn’t the case."
