    Good point.
    should we thank Bergdahl? McVeigh? Hasan?

    I know there are military who have many different views but if they are active OR still working for the gov't they are not supposed to be political.

    The original media tweet was taken down
    Only the lower part here is the same, and is what they were talking about

    if they treated Trump that way like they did Obama then Trump wouldn’t even go on Twitter. Also his temperament wouldn’t be questioned ever. It would put the Dems in a position to actually have to work with Trump.

    Which is worse .....
    Their treatment of Trump?, or
    Their treatment of Obama?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who notices stuff like this. There's tremendous bias in how an issue is framed. If you say something is "unverified," that sounds a lot better than "no evidence" or even worse, "debunked." It's a little like the difference between "lie" and "misspoke" or "stated incorrectly."

    The Biden thing says a lot. Whether criminality has been established, only a fool wouldn't be suspicious as hell. There's a hell of a lot of "no evidence." And keep in mind that Democrats have been very quick to proclaim that a crime isn't needed to impeach. If that's the case (and it is), then the "no evidence" mantra shouldn't matter, because the mere shadiness of the arrangement should be enough to judge Biden.

    Smacks of Algore's "controlling legal authority" comments long ago...

    That was completely absurd.

    It goes to show how the Democrats are protected by the media. Imagine Trump saying that about the alleged "quid pro quo."

    So was the testimony that the phone was 2 feet away from Holmes being held out so he could hear and that there was absolute silence around them? Is that what Cuomo's little experiment was supposed to show could substantiate what Holmes says he clearly overheard?

    Trump tweeted this morning that it’s hard to overhear phone conversations - “people should try it!”

    CNN, in desperate attempt to own Trump, tried to do it on live TV.

    Oof.

    CNN ended up punching themselves in the balls.

    I didn't know CNN had balls. Seems like a very weepy vaginal kind of place to me.

    Will Hurd is such a wasted chair, geez

    But he did at least just signal that he will vote "no" on impeachment
    One never knows with that guy

    Trump on Fox And Friends this morning for 57 minutes. I'll be curious to see what headlines from that CNN and MSNBC and the other fake news come upon with. I'm sure they will report and broadcast the clips that put him in a positive light. Right?

    The Dems thought social media was their advantage going into the 2016. Now they believe it wasn’t and felt like there is fake news posted in it. They are now trying to get involved by stopping it. But they have no problem with CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NY Times, Wash Post and on and on with all the fake news they spew.

    CNN has been running a series lately about what has driven this country apart. They point fingers even at media outlets(Fox, NY Times)....but guess which media outlet they seem to hold harmless ? And as bad as MSNBC is, IMO CNN is worse. Their entire front page is devoted to persuasion in favor of Dems these days. They even run clips of SNL as though it is newsworthy.

    Besides comparing the Nancy to a bedbug, he also said he thinks all this Russigate/Urkrainegate hate goes all the way to the top. The rest of these losers wouldn’t have been doing it without it going to the top. He still wants to see the Crowd Strike servers.

    “They gave the server to Crowdstrike. Why did they give it to a Ukrainian company?”

    Seems like a good question

    This is my hometown paper -- which is actually run out of San Francisco.
    And it's not just Thanksgiving, they always think you are fat and dumb.

    It's fair and truthful to say all Americans are fat and dumb? Did LH or Bubba hack your account?

    It didn't say "all." It's a generalization.

    You dont seem to realize they were including you

    Or, maybe you did and that was some type of self-own?
