Russian Bots Blame Schumer For Shutdown

Russian social media bots are promoting #SchumerShutdown more than any other hash tag right now, according to the Alliance for Securing Democracy, a group of cyber security experts who monitor Russian influenced activity on Twitter. The group regularly monitors a set of accounts related to Russian influence campaigns and tracks the number of times the same message is promoted by all of the accounts. The groups most current chart, published Sunday evening, shows #SchumerShutdown as the number one hashtag used by those accounts on Twitter.

I disagree. He got the CR to end before the SOTU. He got CHIP off the table. And when Yertle fails on his "intention", Shumer will have cover for Shutdown Redux.

More on #2:

Republican lawmakers are pushing for the House Intelligence Committee to release a memo written by the panel's chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes, that outlines purported surveillance during the transition period against President-elect Donald Trump by former President Barack Obama's administration.

And Russia-linked Twitter bots have jumped on the bandwagon.

#ReleaseTheMemo is the top-trending hashtag among Twitter accounts linked to Russian influence operations, according to Hamilton 68, a website launched last year that says it tracks Russian propaganda in near-real time.

The frequency with which the accounts have been promoting the hashtag has spiked by 233,000% over the past 48 hours, according to the site. The accounts' references to the "memo," meanwhile, have increased by 68,000%.

He got CHIP off the table. - #4 | Posted by Danforth at 2018-01-23 12:49 AM

He didn't get CHIP off the table. CHIP was funded for 6 years in the bill that Schumer filibustered. What Schumer got in exchange for shutting down the government is a reduction in the length of the CR from 4 weeks to 3 weeks and a hand-shake guarantee to bring DACA up for debate in the Senate. No word on that it will come up in the House.
Republicans had put heavy pressure on the Democrats to pass the spending bill by tying it to a provision that would fund the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, for six years.
In case you don't like that cite for some reason:
"The current house Continuing Resolution package has a six-year extension of CHIP, not a 30 day extension," Cornyn wrote.

And it does not fund the community health centers where more than 20 million rural patients have to go to get care.

So nice work to Cons. Using a stripped out version of CHIP to leverage the CR vote that provides insurance but no funding for the health centers for the insured to go to get care.

If you listened to any of the speeches for what Republicans were willing to do vs what Democrats were willing to do you would instantly realize that it is inevitable that we will be right back in shutdown mode come Feb 8th. Especially if the Cons don't get a real budget on the table.

And as Avi points out the House hasn't agreed to anything.

I am suggesting Government workers get their affairs in order and prepare for a long shutdown come Feb 8th.

They cannot use CHIP to split the Democrats anymore. So since the bill was passed CHIP IS off the table.

Now the Senate can focus on a clean DACA bill. Which, of course, they will not do as promised because we know McConnell will not keep his word. So we will be right back in shutdown mode Feb 8th. And CHIP will not be in play.

No kidding. It's why I've said so 3 times in this thread. The comment was that Schumer's actions caused it to be removed from the table. I'm attempting to inform you that his actions had nothing to do with it. If he had not filibustered, it was already through the House and would have passed the Senate. When he DID filibuster, it still passed after he conceded. In either case his filibuster actions had nothing to do with CHIP being passed. Schumer didn't get it off the table. You're trying to give credit where none is due. Credit whoever added CHIP into the House bill if you really want to give honest credit for CHIP passing.

Once again, I am not stating that CHIP can be used, that it's not off the table, or that it hasn't been passed. You're arguing against what you think I'm saying without actually reading what I've written. Danforth said Schumer got CHIP off the table. I explained that Schumer's actions had nothing to do with it because it was already in the bill that passed the House and that Schumer filibustered. Had Schumer NOT chosen to shut down the government, the bill to fund CHIP would have passed sooner. So I guess Schumer did accomplish something in regards to CHIP. Just nothing good.

FFS Danforth. CHIP funding for 6 years was included in the CR that passed the House. I linked cites to it up above. NPR interviewed House Representatives live on the air on Friday talking about how they were happy that they got a 6 year funding for CHIP in the CR.
CHIP funding for 6 years was included in the CR that failed to get 60 votes for cloture in the Senate.
You measure the effect someone had by looking at the delta between what condition it was in before and after their effect. The delta, the measurable difference between the CR prior to and after the government shutdown, is no change to the funding of CHIP. Schumer's shutdown of the government's only effect on CHIP was to delay the CR that included it.

I'm not ignoring the fact. It just doesn't have any bearing to the conversation at hand. All I stated that giving credit to Schumer was incorrect. It remains so, even if our Congress is too incompetent to pass the bill that they admit should be passed. It doesn't help that when a bill comes to the floor funding CHIP, that the Top Democrat filibusters it. Giving him credit for getting the very thing he blocked passed is asinine.

Actually he could have stood his ground. Many of us thought he should.

And then nothing would have been passed.

Schumer decided that this time to get CHIP off the table so that next time the Republicans could not hold our children hostage to their schemes.

Next time will not be so simple. Feb 8th is getting closer every day and I don't see any movement yet.

That is 2 days already wasted.

The conversation I was having with Danforth (and later Donnerboy) was if Schumer should be given credit for getting funding for CHIP into the CR.
In what way does the Congress' inability to put CHIP funding up for a vote over the last 4 months have bearing on whether Schumer's filibuster is to be credited for funding CHIP?

You were having a conversation with Donnerboy, and so was I! #62 | Posted by Hans at 2018-01-24 01:50 PM
Ah, sorry to interrupt you talking to Donnerboy. Carry on.

"Carry on." - #63 | Posted by Avigdore at 2018-01-24 01:55 PM

Carry on?

That's mighty white of you, Avigdore

He says there is hope for Dreamers but NO guarantees.
FTFY

Danke.

Anyone who thinks the Dems can force the GOP to protect Dreamers but who also didn't vote for Dems in 2016 is seriously misguided.

I always wondered why you were always using that phrase, Hans.

From your link: mighty white of you -Foolish phrase used by some to show so-called white superiority
Makes so much sense now that you would keep using it. Carry on.

That TOP DEFINITION notice at the top of the link, you know, the very first definition listed, must be a real challenge for you.

Instead, you scrolled down to the very last definition listed.

Makes so much sense that you wouldn't catch that one, Avigdore.

But, of course.

Birds of a feather.

So let's make sure I have this straight:
I managed to read ALL of the link that you posted to, and learned that the statement you've adopted here on the Retort is used by white supremacists to espouse their white supremacist views.
You, Hans, linked to the ACTUAL page that SHOWS that definition and how it is a Foolish phrase used by some to show so-called white superiority.
And you want us to believe that you were too challeneged to actually read the definition, and you were unintentionally spouting white supremacist jargon here.
That's the story you're going with?

No, you don't... As usual.

"...and learned that the statement you've adopted here on the Retort is used by white supremacists to espouse their white supremacist views."

You seemed to have missed this part of that last definition:

Now sometimes said in a sarcastic manner to people who act as they are superior ...
"Now said...", as in contemporary.

And "...people who act as they are superior...". Sounds just like you, Avigdore.

So, yeah, I guess that fits you as well as the first definition, which is how I was using it.

Reading and reading comprehension are not really your friends, Avigdore.

But your concern is noted.

#69 | Posted by Hans at 2018-01-24 03:35 PM

The real question is will you carry on using your white supremacist lingo?

"...will you carry on using your white supremacist lingo?" - #70 | Posted by Avigdore at 2018-01-24 06:57 PM

As usual, that makes no sense whatsoever.
