Sadly that's how partisan and entrenched things are these days.


I don't know about your friend but I've noticed a phenomenon dating at least as far back to W. running for re-election - I call it "the Stealth Republican"

I'm talking about Republicans who say they are "really more of a libertarian" and then spout some religious right crap. the ones who claim never to watch FOX News and then rattle off the three things FOX is talking about today. I knew a LOT of Repubs who said they weren't voting for TRUMP in the primary - I don't know how they voted - I wasn't at the booth with them but I'd bet money that MOST of them did.

My favorite is the Bill O'Reilly type Republican who identify themselves as "Independents". watch a C-SPAN call in show. Dems call the Dem line and FOX News watching lunatics call the Repub line AND the "Independent" line.

I don't think this is an accident. I think they want to appear to be a bigger, more diverse and more thoughtful group than they actually are. the FOX News boiler plate they generally fall back on shows this is either bullshit or that all that stuff enters their brains in other ways -- osmosis maybe.

Chait piece getting some traction in the form of a Politico look at it that reads like you smoked weed that was WAY stronger than you thought it would be.

If only Trump were bumbling and ineffective, like regular stupid guys.

Instead, he seems to be courting catastrophe, for him and everyone else. He'll pull everything down with him if he can, and you know it.

As I read the original story and then this what goes concurrently through my mind is why smart pundits like these can't apply their clearly deductive minds to conspiracies like 9/11. There are smart articles out here that if you but took the time to read would make you see that the official story is a crock. And this is why. In the second Trump-Putin connection story above is this bit of snark.

People who once wanted to imprison Hillary Clinton for a uranium deal approved by the U.S. government are now waving away 30 years of Moscow’s personal and financial investments in Donald Trump as though it’s nothing more than a condo purchase on an overdrawn checking account.


As if the uranium deal was the dirtiest charge against HRC. It isn't by far, especially if you look at the Clinton Foundation doings. Not to do that litigation here but had the writer said something like the Clintons have their own problematic issues but this Trump guy may be an actual traitor, had he given a nod to other "conspiracies" he'd have a lot more diverse people seeing truth.

Ask the writer. He conjoined them first. He could have made his case without the dig and I wouldn't have noticed. Trump is digging his own grave. But if he wants to take a swipe at Hillary haters let him be as factual about why they hate her as he is about why he thinks Trump might be in league with the Russians.

Sorry, my wording was clumsy.
I meant why is there a need to conjoin the two, not you personally Jimbo.

Because whatever the Clinton's have done in no way lessens what Trump is doing.

I think a lot of commentators and journalists now feel obliged to conjoin HRC and Trump's skeletons in the closet in order to give the impression that it is serious comment/investigation and not just a witchhunt against Trump. He has played every single attempt to expose and delegitimise him and his presidency as a "fake news" witchunt; so any thoughtpieces now have to go to great lengths to try and show they are looking at these situations objectively. Trump has recalibrated how even serious investigative jourmalism is judged/accepted, and as such it seems to require a few paragraph's shining a light on HRC's quesionable integrity too in order to maintain an illusion of balance and give what they are writing validity and creedence.

Besides, HRC isn’t bullying the fuck out of NATO. DJT is.
HRC isn’t appointing somebody to the SCOTUS who thinks Sea World has more rights than people mauled by Orcas do.
Donald, settle down. But, Mommy, what about Hillary?

And my point was that IF you co-join the two then do it honestly. A comparison of the two no longer needs be on a partisan basis. The campaign is over. Evidence shows they are both SOBs. The earlier essay was more honest and on target and showed that Trump is corrupt and possibly in the pocket of the Russians. I don't think HRC was even mentioned. (If you can't say something nice say nothing.) It was fair enough. The second essay dropped in a HRC hater hate-nugget to just to show his distain for the many - also partisan - Trump supporters who usually drop a HRC hate-nugget of their own.

Why even talk about freaking Hillary Clinton AT ALL for crying out loud? She's not the damn president.

Quote THIS bit:

But there is no way to read Chait’s story—or to do any judicious review of Donald Trump’s dealings with the Russians over years—and reach any other conclusion but that the Kremlin has damaging and deeply compromising knowledge about the president. Whether they are using such materials, and how, is a matter of legitimate argument. That such things exist, however, and that they seem to be preoccupying the president, should be obvious.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

WHO CARES?

I swear to God this is like re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The important stuff is what the Count quoted, and it's important not just for what it says, but for where it appears, namely Politico, which might as well be USA Today (in other words, a very mainstream outlet). It's significant, I think, that this stuff is coming out of the shadows of partisan organs like Daily Kos or Wonkette and into some very bright sunlight.

Ha Ha Hillary. Ha Ha Pantsuits. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.
I was doing my thing at work while Tucker Carlson was on last night (or the night before)
Tucker had a guest host so maybe the mechanics of the thing were a little easier to spot.
Like Tucker the guest host had on someone she disagreed with. like Tucker she presented herself as a fair and understanding person before engaging them. and then she did what FOX News has been doing reliably since the "Hannity & Colmes" days -- she presented a conflicting point of view for the sole purpose of marginalizing it. like Carson she looked smugly into the camera at the end of the "debate" as if to say. "obviously they were no match for ME!!!!"

there are 2 TV's in the break room. for about a week now a guy has the FOX on the main TV - he watches basketball on the other TV then when someone goes to change the channel (it's always on VERY LOUD) on the main TV- he comes out. tells them he's watching it. lingers until they leave and then leaves it blasting while he returns to his basketball game. No other programming is allowed. He'll back down if somebody goes Alpha Male on him but usually people don't really want to engage with him.

it was on this morning - the remote wouldn't work to change the channel and it was LOUD. it went something like this: oh, those foolish people in the Democrat Party, oh how out of touch they are with the AMERICAN PEOPLE by not admitting what a baseball coaching, fun loving, average American this Kavanaugh guy is. oh, how they hurt themselves by suggesting anyone will be affected negatively by any judgements he might make. polite chuckles mixed with derisive laughter. UGH. god bless the "mute" button.

what an advantage the Trump Admin. has in having the Nation's most popular News Channel be 100% behind anything he does. shit, there were people on there explaining why Melania's "I don't care do U?" jacket was a wonderful thing and why would anybody insult the American People by saying otherwise.

sheesh.

You'd think with all this validation they get from Fox they'd be happier and not have to harass women wearing Puerto Rico jerseys or check moms' IDs along with their pool cards.
