How to use barrage in a sentence?

  1. Ben Carson:

    Before the barrage of attacks on me occurred, I was beating Trump head-to-head, Hillary head-to-head and there are those who didn't like that very much. And the people are the only ones who can rectify the situation.

  2. The President:

    The tonal shiftThe most tangible development over the course of Tuesday was the subtle, yet very critical, shift in tone coming from the Democratic members who have held significant sway -- or even control -- over the state of play in White House. Red lines that had been drawn were blurred. Public spats that spilled into the open played out again behind closed doors. Yes, the details still need significant work. No, not all members are there yet.But, there was a recognition that something had to happen and fast before The President leaves for Scotland. It's a shift from where members were just before the recess, when Pelosi was forced to postpone a vote on the bipartisan infrastructure bill because factions could not come together. The impending deadline of Glasgow paired with the reality of a midterm election just a year away and the constant barrage of stories about Democratic infighting all coalesced and began chipping away at the resolve of folks who up until this point had demanded they get everything or give nothing at all.Here's your signFor example : Members of the progressive caucus started to say they may not need a full Senate vote on the Build Back Better package before they vote for the bipartisan infrastructure bill. Members in that meeting said that is because The President made it abundantly clear that any bill that The President backed and said would have the Senate's support, would. Analysis : Gas prices are high. That could mess with Bidens climate agenda.

  3. The IDF:

    After terrorists in Gaza Strip fired a barrage of rockets at central and southern Israel over the past few hours, we just struck three Hamas terrorists in Gaza Strip.

  4. Tal Ben-Shahar:

    One of the best ways to deal with the depressing and demoralizing impact of the constant barrage of bad news is distraction. We are not burying our head in the sand when we engage in activities that take us away from an otherwise distressing situation.

  5. Charlie Sheen:

    Charlie Sheen said Charlie Sheen found out Charlie Sheen was HIV positive about four years ago. Charlie Sheen symptoms began with crushing headaches. I thought I had a brain tumor, Charlie Sheen recalled. I thought it was over. The star said Charlie Sheen was coming forward with the truth because of the rumors in the press surrounding Charlie Sheen health. I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn't be further from the truth. Charlie Sheen said the most hurtful rumor Charlie Sheen read claimed Charlie Sheen intentionally transmitted the disease to Charlie Sheen partners. That’s as far from the truth as anything can be, Charlie Sheen said. Drug and alcohol use have marred Sheen's personal and professional life in recent years. Charlie Sheen was kicked off CBS' Two and a Half Men in 2011 after an explosive meltdown that included calling the show's producer a contaminated little maggot. Charlie Sheen escapades have also included the revelation that Charlie Sheen spent more than $ 50,000 as a client of Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss' prostitution ring. You can only hear ‘ winning ’ in the streets so many times, i am approaching a time of more of a philanthropic culture in my life.
