    I had to start over a couple of times in my life. Divorce, etc. It's not easy but it can be done.

    I think many conservatives are ready to consider the still thinking Left's approach to dealing with DP corruption.

    "Afterall, the clintons didn't have to return the millions they earned off their failed attempt to cram the Keystone XL Pipeline down the throats of Americans (they didn't but the company TransCanada instead wants millions from the Taxpayers! THANKS ALOT CLINTONS!)

    Sadly all the Taxpayer funded shenanigans in Colombia traceable back to a deposit of funds with the Clintons pales in comparison to what the Clintons pulled in Nigeria. The scams the Clintons pulled on the US Taxpayers to enrich themselves working with the murderous warlords in Africa are detailed in the book (they involve, but are not limited to, direct financial aid from the US to African states (that somehow found their way into an account the Clinton’s had material influence over) and kickbacks from friends benefiting from the USAID’s Development Credit Authority (which is funded by US taxpayers))

    So, here it is. For the typical 99%’r American, the camel’s back has broken by the last straw sourced in Washington so many times the camel doesn’t even have what you’d refer to as a spin anymore.

    The Clinton’s need to have their assets seized, Giustra needs to arrested, and at a minimum racketeering charges need to pursued against the whole damn bunch of ‘em….BEFORE IT GETS REPEATED WITH, SAY, THE TPP.

    Hillary needs to face charges of Espionage for her e-mail. And if guilty, like with Edward Snowden, all options for disposition of her miserable guilty ass should be on the table including the death penalty."
    THOMHARTTMANN.COM, Clinton’s used Trade Agreements to get access to Taxpayer money and enrich themselves, their cronies, as well as clear-cut and mine massive portions of the Rainforest - all while Obama was President., By telliottmbamsc, Jan. 29, 2016.

    LOL! Did the Commissioner of the IRS take the 5th?

    The thinking left used to know all about crooked cops.

    "“Like the agitator concept, the claim of foreign influence is a means of discounting domestic unrest. Indeed, the agitator was classically a “foreign agitator”. The need to discredit the anti-Vietnam war movement of the 60s and early 70s, as well as campus and ghetto unrest, reinvigorated the foreign-influence and Moscow-Gold theories of the past, despite the fact that these movements were manifestly indigenous and Indeed typically quite opposed Soviet communism as well as its domestic (Old Left) supporters on the grounds of “bureaucracy”, “revisionism”, and repressiveness. The uncompromising reality did not, as I will show, deter the intelligence of evaluators, although their efforts were little value in discrediting their targets.” The Age of Surveillance, The Aims and Methods of America's Political intelligence System, Frank J. Donner, Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., New York, 1980, p. 19.

    All this politically expedient amnesia is not helping what still passes for the "Left" these days overcome its credibility gap.

    AND...

    Exactly how does that Anti-Clinton Copypasta relate to the OP Topic of YouTube/Google and Trump Ads?

    The markets are way overdue for a correction. Now would be a good time for one.

    It has everything to do with how to deal with corrupt politicians and their crony capitalist minions like Google/Youtube.

    The thinking Left used to know how The Lawless State works.
    More politically expedient amnesia? ;-)

    "To quell dissent, the FBI's primary efforts inevitably interfered in the political process. The thrust of the FBI campaign against the Socialist Workers party was to subvert SWP's efforts to elect candidates to public office. In 1962, the New York office of the FBI compiled an arrest and conviction record on an SWP candidate for Manhattan borough president and supplied it to a reporter for the New York Daily News, who published it in a column. In 1963, the San Francisco office sent an anonymous letter to a black independent candidate for mayor of the city, attacking the SWP members active in his campaign and urging him to dissociate himself from them. In 1964, the Newark office distributed leaflets attacking a New Jersey SWP candidate for the U.S. Senate for alleged anti-black political stands on issues. In 1965, the Denver office sent an anonymous letter from a "concerned mother" to the Denver School Board in which the SWP affiliations and activities of a school board candidate were detailed. The purpose of the letter was "to prevent him from being elected to the School Board." When an SWP candidate was running for mayor in 1965, the New York field office sent an anonymous letter to various newspapers and television stations revealing that the candidate had previously appeared in court in Chicago for "non-support" of his family and that his marital status could be questioned. In 1969, the New York field office sent an anonymous letter to a black SWP candidate for mayor that purported to be from white members of the SWP and attacked him for being too militant on the race issue, in order to cause dissension and hurt his campaign."
    THE LAWLESS STATE, The crimes of the U.S. Inteligence Agencies, by Morton Halperin, Jerry Berman, Robert Borosage, Christine Marwick, Penguin Books, 1976.

    To a large degree, yes. What closet? I've never hid the fact that I'm a liberty leaning republican?

    I don't buy those ridiculous conspiracies, when many of them are projected by the nitwit Alex Jones.

    Google only consistently deleted the adds that violated it rules.
    You go find an add made by the dems that violates their policies and you have a point.
    No point to whine about it otherwise.

    Republicans only like rules when they are the ones making them.

    The left has to take away freedom of speech in order to protect us from ourselves.

    Whenever I cite Alex Jones you let me know. ;-)

    "I had tried to search out any other evidence of internal corruption that would show that the DNC was ***rigging*** the system to throw the primary to Hillary, but I could not find any in party affairs or among the staff. I had gone department by department, investigating individual conduct for evidence of skewed decisions, and I was happy to see that I had found none. Then I found this agreement.

    The funding arrangement with HFA and the victory fund agreement was not illegal, but it sure looked unethical. If the fight had been fair, one campaign would not have control of the party before the voters had decided which one they wanted to lead. This was not a criminal act, but as I saw it, it compromised the party’s integrity."
    POLITICO, Inside Hillary Clinton’s Secret Takeover of the DNC, When I was asked to run the Democratic Party after the Russians hacked our emails, I stumbled onto a shocking truth about the Clinton campaign., By DONNA BRAZILE November 02, 2017. (*** mine)

    Conspiracies are rather common. Any review of human history will confirm it.

    The Left historically has always managed to commit suicide.
    Ending freedom of speech and imposing speech codes is usually an early step in that direction.

    You may have missed the memo because you aren't in the loop. I don't remember when exactly but I'm sure it was in 2017, there was a confrence of sorts, attended by the movers and shakers in the tech world. The women had their marches, and the scientists had theirs. But the people of high tech had a different approach. Since about 1990 or so, the tech world has been a major funder and brain trust for the Democratic Party. Republicans have big oil and the Democratics have big data.

    Early on it had become apparent that Trump and his crowd were not about to be honest. After all, fake news, was one of the first lines to come out if his mouth. And he was backed by Sean Hannity and the folks over at the Heritage Foundation, perhaps the greatest propagators of alternate "facts". Not to mention that he had the Russians helping him hack into computers, and to spread false and misleading information.

    There were discussions about how the Democratic Party wasn't always gutsy enough to fight back enough, as dirty politics don't seem to be their forte. Maybe back in they days when they had mob connections, but those days have long past.

    But since the Republicans and Russians were using the creation of liberals, the intellectual liberals that is, not the homeless bums conservatives pretend they are. Mostly the idea had been to keep things honest. To promote fact checking.

    But it is quite obvious that a lie can't be counteracted with a fact check that few will ever bother to look. Perhaps the better path is to block false and misleading information. It isn't just Republican, Russian, and consevative postings that are blocked, as many far left YouTubers are making the same complaints. However, that is how dictatorial governments like Russia operate. They flood society with so much false information that most people don't trust any information, allowing the leaders to say whatever nonsense they what the people to hear, regardless of the truthfulness of it.

    Cutting out the garbage, makes it easier to see the truth.

    So here I am, sounding a bit like a Soviet dissident complaining about Soviet propaganda techniques. But it is the red Party in America that I am complaining about. Could it be, the Russians gave Trump campaign advice. Start out slamming the press, and the true believers will never accept any negative press. I wonder which Russian fed him the line about shooting someone on fifth avenue.

    Well I not sure that the term deep state goes that far back, but conspiracies certainly do. That said, it doesn't make them valid.
