How are these two still married?
Like all innocent people do, Rudy and friends ran around with several burner phones. Don’t worry, they’re totally innocent. It’s the deep state Purple Heart people like Mueller and Vindman who are the criminals.
Something to fight about, that doesn't matter to the marriage, spices things up for some people.
It's a bit.
Dang man. Thriller is making this place unreadable. Post after post. It's all him. It goes like 7 posts Thriller, 1 post other person, 5 posts Thriller, 2 posts other people. 8 posts Thriller.
I guess he thinks we all came to watch a Thriller.
Word of advice bro. You are watering down your message.
@Red @Zombie @colton @Gameface @One Brow
Are republicans just playing a game?
Are they really this stupid and rejecting our own IC and Mueller and just relying on being poorly informed by Fox News?
Tucker’s defending Putin again. Is there any fundamental difference between RT and Fox News?
Republicans are playing this brilliantly. The American people have lives. They don’t care enough about this to take time to carefully study the situation. So republicans feed simple easy to swallow propaganda bites.
Dems live life in nuance but republicans tap into emotions.
I don’t see the Dems running a smart campaign against trump.
Republicans have lost their soul to get and retain power.
really? Are Americans really so stupid? Are our attention spans really so short? I’m not so sure. Maybe among Trump’s stupid base. But I (hope) you’re not right about the majority of Americans.
If you’re right, then amen to American democracy.
Also, your post reminded me of one of my favorite passages from 1984:
Attorney General William P. Barr has told associates he disagrees with the Justice Department’s inspector general on one of the key findings in an upcoming report — that the FBI had enough information in July 2016 to justify launching an investigation into members of the Trump campaign, according to people familiar with the matter.
The Justice Department’s inspector general, Michael Horowitz, is due to release his long-awaited findings in a week, but behind the scenes at the Justice Department, disagreement has surfaced about one of Horowitz’s central conclusions on the origins of the Russia investigation. The discord could be the prelude to a major fissure within federal law enforcement on the controversial question of investigating a presidential campaign.
Barr has not been swayed by Horowitz’s rationale for concluding that the FBI had sufficient basis to open an investigation on July 31, 2016, these people said.
Barr’s public defenses of President Trump, including his assertion that intelligence agents spied on the Trump campaign, have led Democrats to accuse him of acting like the president’s personal attorney and eroding the independence of the Justice Department. But Trump and his Republican allies have cheered Barr’s skepticism of the Russia investigation.
It’s not yet clear how Barr plans to make his objection to Horowitz’s conclusion known. The inspector general report, currently in draft form, is being finalized after input from various witnesses and offices that were scrutinized by the inspector general. Barr or a senior Justice Department official could submit a formal letter as part of that process, which would then be included in the final report. It is standard practice for every inspector general report to include a written response from the department. Barr could forgo a written rebuttal on that specific point and just publicly state his concerns.
Spokespeople for the inspector general and the FBI declined to comment.
1. Soooooo Barr is going to make The IG report whatever he And Trump want it to be.
2. Fox News will misinform. The “left wing media” will help, by giving legitimacy to their fact free conspiracies and giving air time to hacks like Sen Kennedy.
3. Republicans will mindlessly regurgitate whatever Fox News and Trump want.
4. According to @silesian, Americans are too stupid and/or lazy to learn the truth.
5. The truth will be lost and Democrats will now have another front in this war to fight.
Again, this is how authoritarianism triumphs over democracy. Are we ever going to wake up???
This thread improved for me ever since I put him on ignore. Nothing of substance anyway...
Oh the irony
This doesn't really solve anything, but, at times like this in the history of a nation, there will be people who see clearly what is happening while it is happening, and there are many more people who are sleepwalking through their nation's history, and do not see or understand what is happening "before their very eyes" so to speak. The former, like yourself, like myself, will understandably be incredulous that something that seems so self evident, so easy to recognize, is not seen clearly by all citizens.
Look at the crowds at Trump's rallies. I won't say they are somehow inherently evil, they are as human as myself. But, these are the people who follow authoritarians like the Pied Piper. Right off a cliff if that is where he leads. These are the people, concerning whom their children and grandchildren will one day say "how could you do it? How could you support and follow such a man? Did you not learn anything from history?" They are quite unable to understand what they are doing.
My understanding is that AG Barr will have more control over how the conclusions of the Durham report are presented. We have seen, most regrettably, the control he was able to exert over the Mueller Report. It was brilliant, in that it successfully conditioned many Americans, Trump supporters all, to actually believe Mueller found "no collusion, no obstruction".
I suspect he will present the Durham Report to America in the same way, designed to please Trump, and therefore Trump's supporters. Barr and Durham have globe trotted together, Barr no doubt in search of the Deep State conspiracy to take down Trump. A conspiracy that did not exist. But Trump and Barr are not about truth. They are about increasing the power of the imperial presidency. Barr will himself not be happy until the United States is an elective monarchy.
And still the sheep will bleat and cheer if they could but own the liberals, the United States and democracy be damned.
Sleepwalking through their own nation's history.
The article seems to indicate that Barr will only be able to provide a response letter, and not control what's released. I'm very interested in how this plays out.
True, but that's the IG Horowitz report. There are 2 different reports. The Horowitz Report, which Barr apparently disagrees with, is due to be official released on 12/9. I was referring to the as yet to be released Durham Report. My understanding there is that he will have more control over how the Durham Report is presented, once it is ready to be released. It is this report regarding which AG Barr has been personally involved, traveling with Durham to interview Italian officials, for example. It is very unusual to see an AG so personally, and directly involved, in a investigation he launched. If he has more control over how the conclusions are presented, I must believe he will, as with Mueller, do so in a way that pleases dear leader.
This popped up in my reddit feed. It doesn't necessarily mean anything, but it makes you wonder about the third and fourth congressional reps are gonna get it.
Thank you for that clarification. Significant and meaningful.
