    This entire "scandal" is so painfully, embarrassingly obvious as a fake that I fully expect Rudy to turn out to be Jacob Wohl in a mask. It's about that level of incompetence.

    The only thing that makes me think the information might be true (though Rudy was surely fed Hunter's emails by Russian hackers, not a blind computer repair shop conspiracy theorist) is how weak and irrelevant the dirt is. For all the fanfare there is nothing they've released that reflects badly on Joe Biden, much less is evidence of actual corruption or misbehaviour. 

     

    If it was all fake couldn't they have invented something punchier?

    In response to a lawsuit by BuzzFeed News, the government said that just because Trump demanded that the Russia investigation be declassified, it doesn’t mean he wanted the Russia investigation to be declassified.

    [facepalm]

    Release all documents?

    No, redactions!

    Let's see what happens now.

    And in a turn of events surprising no one except Ron, the Trump White House is now fighting in court to keep those same documents secret. Redactions!

     

    Interestingly, White House council is actually arguing that the direct pronouncements of the President should not be taken as evidence of the President’s orders, only the word of subordinate Administration officials should be trusted to convey the President’s position. Isn’t that exactly what the Deep State would want us to think?XoX

    Old news Bill.  There hasn't been a halt in negotiations.  What you're getting a chub over is a negotiating tactic called "the takeaway".

    I'm sure 12.6M unemployed people will find that comforting.

     

    Now, exactly which part of Pelosi's negotiating technique are you getting a chub over?

    To Occam's Razor and Hobson's Choice we can now add Jakee's Posit. 

    Looks more like a Joe's Obsession though doesn't it?

    Yes, I'll write a retraction, and do it in Presidential ALL CAP'S, if that's more satisfying. But I'm not too worried.

    Because you'll find any excuse not to, obviously;)

    I'll bite. It's a play on the Fox News slogan of the past. "We report, you decide". At the time they were claiming to be the only real objective cable news service available. I believe they eventually dropped it when it became such an obvious lie that it was the butt of jokes.

    Ahhhh ok. But was that when They switched to ‘Fair and Balanced’ instead?:p

    I'm sure the 12.6 million unemployed folks will find that comforting.

    Then let's hope those 12.6M folks can put some pressure on the President to stop publicly changing his mind on the stimulus several times a day. To make him let his representatives sit down and negotiate in good faith with the Democrats. To make him stop sending his press corps out to flatly contradict the stance his negotiators think they're supposed to take.

    Ummm...

    It couldn't have 'turned into' a nothingburger.

    That would imply that it started off as a 'somethingburger'.

    No kidding. I've been wondering how Turtle failed to notice that while the Post claim to have a massive trove of Hunter's emails their headline bombshell, the absolute worst thing for Joe Biden they could find, was Hunter maybe engineering one single encounter between Joe Biden and a Ukrainian on a day Joe Biden was speaking at multiple public events. 

     

    And... that's it. No follow up. No discussion. Not a single mention of Joe Biden doing anything at all. And that's their smoking gun.

    But considering they still believe that HRC & the dems had children enslaved in the basement of a restaurant that never had a basement

    Well, of course they would say that. It's the perfect cover.

    Okay, will someone please explain to me what Extortion 17 has to do with Benghazi?

    mh

    I'm not going to give them the Youtube click to actually watch the video, but my take from reading the synopsis is that they claim the Seal team who raided OBL's compound actually killed OBL's body double, not OBL. Because Obama and Clinton needed to keep this quiet they orchestrated the shootdown of Extortion 17 which secretly had on board that same Seal team. The people who are alive now who say they were on that team are probably part of the conspiracy. And Iran was hiding OBL all along because the nuclear deal? Or something. It's pretty weird.

    What I find particularly intriguing is that Parrot's account of events corroborates Glenn Beck's analysis of the events about two days after the Benghazi tragedy.

    In what way is that intriguing? Right wing nutcase copies other right wing nutcase - it ain't rocket surgery.

    It's been said here before.  When the D's had control they pulled the same stuff the R's are now.  It's about power and control.

    You can say it all you want, but unless you bring some examples you'll get no traction.

     

    In fact,what we usually hear from the the righties is that the D's would do the same as the R's if they were in the same position, because then they can weasel their way out of providing any examples. But then when you keep hearing it over and over and over again without ever getting to the point where the D's are actually doing it, the accusation falls just as flat. The Republicans are the party that prioritises winning over everything else in a way the Democrats never have been. It's woven into the very DNA of free-market capitalist conservatism.

    Theories include observations and proven facts, but they're still subject to further observation/facts and can be significantly modified over time.

    The technical definition of a theory in science is irrelevant to the normal, colloquial use of the word theory when discussing QAnon. QAnon is not science.

    She's using the playbook of RBG.  It's kind of fun to watch how frustrated the questioners get with her non-answers.

    Lol right. Because to the Republicans nothing is so important that the game of 'let's piss off the dems' doesn't take precedence.

     

    Exactly when did you decide to abdicate any feeling of civic responsibility?
