Trump claims wind turbine 'noise causes cancer'

"If you have a windmill anywhere near your house, congratulations, your house just went down 75 percent in value. And they say the noise causes cancer," the president said while delivering remarks at the National Republican Congressional Committee's annual spring dinner. He offered no evidence to support the claim.

The same way that "crooked Hilary" had no effect since Trump was just as crooked.

There's another GOP initiative to investigate Hillary's emails, while the Trump family continues to use WhatsApp for communication of classified government information.

I think it was Mark Ames, who told a story about an earlier Reagan election. There were some rumors about his opponent making their rounds, maybe he was gay or something along those lines, but since it was only hearsay no respectable paper published them. So the Reagan people planted a reporter to ask him about the allegations which he answered with a quip.
The exchange was now news so everyone now had license to discuss the "scandal."
Impressive waste of time, apparently.

There's a very long history of "smear" campaigns (defamation) produced by opposition "research" UP and DOWN uniparty tickets. With the exception of Henry Wallace, my impression is that the longevity of formulaic illegitimate sex + illegitimate issue (miscegenation) trials have normally have complemented the popular imagination of Americana.

Not only are salacious buds nipped from the bush before they fully bloom, but America's electorate relies on The Press to arouse its civic duty with those insinuations of moral turpitude hiding in a candidate that best, or most accurately, ahh "give voice to" the healthy vanity of A Solid Middle-Class otherwise repressed by mundane pragmatism of equal or greater illicit "value".

Alleged novelty or cunning or unexpected results of Reagan's campaign to uproot deviance (eg. homosexuality) --especially following the relatively recent passing of The Edmund Muskie "scandal" wound up with Viet Nam-- underwhelms the ahh contextual sensitivity of consumers to yella sheet remediation. That particular device in the cycle was exhausted by the so-called Reagan era. FFS. His own son sabotaged that drama. For ever more, pretty much.

Fortunately, boomers have prepared their progeny to vanquish "white slavery", if red baiting proves ineffectual.

Maybe it will give all the golfers cancer.

Maybe the golfers who previously would have been willing to hand money over to Trump's company will be afraid to go there now.
