musings on the mainstream "press corps" and the american discourse
Look at the comments from NY Times Picks: "sinking deeper and deeper in the muck of obstruction of justice" ..."He’s running scared"..."Trump thinks he's above the law" (this one in a comment acknowledging that speaking to those who have already testified is NOT tampering)..."The President of the United States doesn't care about laws when they apply to his behavior and actions. And he believes he is always above the law. Absolute power."How will these people react if Trump is now charged with any crime by the Special Prosecutor?
I think you meant "not" charged. If he is "now" charged, I suspect they will feel relief that a crooked conman has been brought to justice.
How would people react if David in Cal took a permanent powder?Yay!Yay!Yay!
David, you treasonous bastard, how does it feel carrying that goal post around all day?
I'm treasonous because I voted for Trump who illegally colluded with Russia. But, after a year of intensive investigation, the Special Prosecutor has no evidence that Trump or his campaign illegally colluded with Russia. So, Maybe I'm not treasonous. mmm -- when will the investigation have gone on long enough so that you will acknowledge that Trump didn't illegally collude with Russia? Another month of fruitless investigation? Another year? Forever?
The investigation is incomplete and the results are not yet known to the public. We do not know what evidence he has so it is incorrect to conclude that Trump did not collude with Russia or that he is not treasonous.I will believe that Trump didn't collude only when Mueller issues a formal report saying so. It will take as long as it takes to fully investigate and reach a conclusion. In the meantime, I will also believe the results of court trials examining the guilt or innocence of the various members of Trump's team, up to and including himself, if he is indicted.You don't decide guilt or innocence based on how much time has gone by since an investigation started. The longer it goes on, the more likely there will be evidence of Trump's collusion, in my opinion. If there was nothing there, it would be easy to say so.
That's the meme de jour for David and other obnoxious Trump trolls. Today, I've seen it pimped by drive-by trolls in the comment boxes for Mother Jones, Media Matters, Washington Monthly, and others.
DavidinCal,No wonder you stopped calling Hillary Clinton "corrupt" three years ago, after 8 official (and dozens more unofficial) GOP-led investigations turned up not a shred of corruption.Oops.
I'm sure DavidinCal normally doesn't vote for grifters and self-admitted sexual predators. He will probably never do so again, unless the bigotry smells as sweet as Trump's.No problem David. I have your back.
I'm treasonous because I voted for Trump ...No, no, no, Comrade DinC. I don't call you treasonous because you voted for the pussygrabbing degenerate corrupt lying sack of shit. No, that just makes you a nasty hypocritical sonofabitch.I call you a treasonous bastard because even now, after all that the Mueller investigation has uncovered, you want Mueller to pack his bags and go home. First of all you're wrong, it hasn't even been a year. Mueller was appointed in May of 2017, May 17 to be exact. That's like less than 10 months, less time than the FBI spent investigating Clinton's emails.I call you a treasonous bastard because you have taken to attacking our intelligence agencies and the FBI based on bullshit obstruction of the investigation. Nunes served you up a bowl of steaming horseshit and poured some milk on it, grabbed a big spoon and shoveled it down your piehole, exclaiming how delicious it was.As has been repeatedly pointed out to you, you have no idea what Mr. Mueller has found with respect to collusion. Mr. Mueller is not running a political witch hunt. He is no Ken Starr. But just based on what we have seen so far, any normal patriotic American should be seriously concerned. But not you. No, I call you a treasonous bastard because as I have said many times before, it is evident that no matter what Mueller uncovers, you won't give a flying fuck. Mr. Mueller, a combat decorated Marine officer, will let you know when he is done. OK?
mm - Yes, I slightly exaggerated the length of the special prosecutor. OTOH the Obama Administration was investigating the Trump campaign during the election, included wiretapping at least on Trump campaign worker. They found nothing.
Yes, Comrade DinC, and then president obstruction of justice decided to fire Comey. You are a fucking broken record. "they found nothing"???? I'm sorry, you treasonous bastard, I must have missed their final report. Can you point me to a link to support the bullshit you keep peddling here? They apparently found enough to justify FISA warrants and a full blown FBI and CIA investigation that president dumbfuck tried to obstruct by firing Comey, you treasonous bastard. That's quite a rogues gallery of shady corrupt characters your president picked to join his team.The Whitewater investigation into a decades old failed real estate investment in which it was clear from the beginning that the Clintons lost money was stretched out for nearly 6 years. As I said, Mr. Mueller, a combat decorated veteran Marine officer - who must be thoroughly appalled and disgusted by this corrupt lying sack of shit president - will let you know when he is done. Seems to me he is making great progress. I don't blame you for the flop sweat pouring off your treasonous face right about now. It's getting "Stormy" out there, eh?
...included wiretapping at least on Trump campaign worker. Once again, you lying sack of shit, the FISA warrant for Carter Page didn't happen until October 2016, and Carter Page was off the campaign by July, so no you fucking treasonous bastard, the facts are that the Obama administration was not wiretapping "one Trump campaign worker". That's just a fact.But really, you treasonous bastard, what would you have had our intelligence agencies do? Just ignore the evidence just like your treasonous party leaders decided to do, like McConnel putting his party ahead of his country?
David is a moron. Twenty bucks says he was one of the gullible doofuses following right-wing marching orders to make believe he cared about "rule of law" during the Clinton Presidency.
Somerby readers are morons. Somerby comenters are prehuman,
mm - I am pleased with the conduct of our intelligence agencies. By going easy on Hillary Clinton, they allowed her to be the candidate. Thus, Trump ran against the only Democrat he could possibly beat.
Oh look, Nasty DinC is pissed because he got called out for all the bullshit he wrote and he has no answer. So he lashes out like a catty bitch. I am sure he did so in the most sincere humble manner however. Just be sure of one thing, in a week or a month or a year he will come back and repeat the same bullshit. That's this troll's mo.
Going easy on Hillary Clinton = they didn't arrest her and frogmarch her to jail during the campaign.Insensate bootlicker for the .0001%ers = David in Cal.
Misdirection by The Howler. What McGahn did or didn't do isn't the main issue. Or even *any* issue. The issue is: what did Trump do.
So, tonight Bill Maher says "Hillary cackled..." referring to her laughing at something Trump said.How can anyone seriously ask why she lost when Trump haters talk like that about their own candidate?This is what misogyny sounds like, because Hillary has no control over what her voice and laugh sounds like and because women's voices are different than men's and that difference is not a negative or bad thing.Women get so tired of this shit day in and day out. It wears on you worse than poverty CMike, because you can do something about poverty.
Hillary was a bad candidate. It had nothing to do with gender.
This becomes a self-fulfilling statement if men cannot imagine voting for a female candidate, like the men who hear cackling when a woman laughs.
@ 9:58 PM is a bad commenter. It has nothing to do with gender, but everything to do with CDS.FTFY
I think I need more research.
Rude Pundit reminds us: "By the way, for the record, Stormy Daniels is also a director and writer of dozens of porn films. She has even moved into producing them now. She's not just a porn star. She's a porn maven. She's a business person who knows where her bread gets buttered. "
Putin is saying that election meddling was done by Jews with Russian nationality. That should help things.
Not Russian nationality. Russian citizenship. Uncle Vova is not blaming his Russian compatriots. He's suggesting it was other nationalities within the federation. Ukrainians or Tatars, as well as Jews.https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/03/10/putin-says-jews-russian-citizenship-could-behind-u-s-election-meddling/413321002/
Those damned Uzbeks!
