One strategic observation:
The mainstream media wants right-thinking Americans silenced or dead, so rather than simply focusing on people who have already written us off, why not focus on their advertisers as well?
Money is the absolute lifeblood of every news organization, so if we can shake the advertisers at CNNABCMSNBCCBSNBCFOX, we will be standing on the throats of the propagandists.
Do what you can where you are; more as I know more.
