Conspiracy Theories

CNN’s Brian Stelter on Trump: ‘Inventing a conspiracy theory is no way to make America great again’

On CNN’s Reliable Sources this Sunday, host Brian Stelter called out Donald Trump and his supporters’ rumblings that the election is going to be “rigged,” saying that disseminating conspiracy theories in such a polarized political environment is dangerous threat to our democracy.

Stelter argued that reporters aren’t doing their jobs when it comes to fact-checking Trump’s accusations.

“Trump’s lies about election rigging have become a form of background noise, more of the same, and this is a propaganda technique, whether Trump knows it or not,” Stelter said. “If you say something often enough, if you plant enough seeds, people start to wonder, ‘Will my vote matter? Will it actually count?’”

Stelter then played a clip of Trump crying voter fraud and warning about crooked polls during a speech in Philadelphia on Monday – a speech that received little scrutiny on CNN.

“We as a country cannot allow ourselves to become numb to this,” Stelter pleaded, adding that there’s zero evidence to back up Trump’s claims. “We as a media cannot shrug it off as old news … Some of his supporters believe him.”

Trump has even suggested that his supporters “hang out” at polling places and keep an eye out for irregularities – a notion many see as threatening. Some of his supporters and surrogates have even called for an armed revolt in the even Hillary wins.

“Mr. Trump, think of your children,” Stelter concluded. “America is great partly because everyone accepts the results of elections, for decades in the past and hopefully for decades to come. Inventing a conspiracy theory is no way to make America great again.”

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

    There aree various conjditions that can be aided through wearing
    an Arch-Support Insole. Plantar Fasciitis is one such condition due to the thickening of the
    muscle that surrounds the arch. Having both a low arch and a high
    can cause complications for the foot due to the unnatural strain beeing placed on the foot.Wearing an arch-support insole helps to combat this.
    If it is caused by low-arches/flat feet, then the insole helps to lift the
    foot and stop over-pronation from occurring from
    the foot being too flat on the ground. However,
    if the discomfort is being caused through high arches,
    an arch-support inssole can be equally useful. If you are suffering from a high arch, the foot is not being supportive
    enough and the straiin iss being taken onto different parts of thhe fot to combat it.
    Wearing an Arch-Support Insole provides the additional support the foot nereds in order to reduce the pressure and strain on other parts
    of thhe foot.Arch-Support Insoles come in a wide range of designs,
    styles aand sizes. This means that regardless of what is causing the pain in your arch, you can find the right suport
    to suit your needs. Ensuring you have the right support and
    size is essential forr combnating the symptoms
    and reducing the pain and discomfort caused.If you require
    more information about tthe range of arch-support ibsoles availabhle from
    Shoe Insoles, please contact our support team oon 020 7501 1102 or via the contact page on this site.
