One wonders if an ad by some old-time rank & file conservative Republicans just may do the trick. Will it bend the indoctrination curve?

Republicans for the Rule of Law wrote the following on the ad titled "Why Did President Trump Lie About the COVID-19 Crisis?" The first responsibility of government is, as the Constitution says, "to provide for the common defense." President Trump has now rightly compared the coronavirus pandemic to a war. But he was still minimizing the threat as recently as three days ago. In a crisis, there are three rules that must be followed when communicating with the public: Be first. Be right. Be credible. President Trump has often been first but he has seldom been right and he has never been credible. In early February, 72% of Republicans agreed that coronavirus was a serious threat. Today, that number is 40%. President Trump bears responsibility misleading his supporters. Accurate and timely information is America's most potent defense against the pandemic we now face. The 60% of Republicans who have been misled by the president's self-serving coronavirus lies are our families, our friends, and our neighbors. We urge them, and all Americans, to get their coronavirus information from the CDC and other reliable sources. This isn't about politics. It's about saving hundreds of thousands of American lives. Who is Republicans for the Rule of Law Republicans for the Rule of Law is the principal 2019 initiative of the conservative political group Defending Democracy Together, founded by Bill Kristol, Mona Charen, Linda Chavez, Sarah Longwell, and Andy Zwick. The project created a media campaign to demand more information from Republican Senators during the impeachment of Donald Trump. As the movement to impeach President Trump got underway, the group spent over $1 million running television advertisements on Fox and MSNBC, calling on Republicans to "demand the facts" about Mr. Trump and Ukraine.

Here is an interesting look at how key members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force are behaving during this pandemic:

Given the allegations of the extremely serious nature of the pandemic, one would think that our leaders would at least practice what they are preaching....but apparently not.

He has Barr in his pocket along with Republican Senators. Incredible. Bring him to court for not allowing anyone he decides should ignore a subpoena and what are the odds of getting a conviction?

How can Trump avoid responsibility for the pandemic hitting the USA when on May 10 2018 He and Bolton got rid of Rear Adm R. Timothy Ziemer the senior director for global health and security and biodefense at the National Security Council. He drastically reduced funding to the CDC. Those actions should be enough to strip him from office. He bears the deaths of so many people, yet still, like a clown, says He and his administration are doing a wonderful job of controlling the Coronavirus. How can thinking Republican Senators defend him and continue to act like lapdogs?

Senator Johnson (R-WI) voted against the aid package because he said it will only affect at the most 3.4% of our population. It should be noted to the mentally deficient Johnson that 3.4% of our population involves 9 to 10 Million people. That's 9,000,000 10,000,000! Glad he thinks that's a small amount because he's accustomed to giving much larger sums of dollars to his donors.

At White House press conferences, a child wearing baseball caps that carry self-lauding slogans is not a leader.

Been reading you for years, Egberto. All we can do out here in the hustings is keep hollering and throwing mud on the wall, and maybe gradually the mud will stick, and people will hear, and "get it."
