From your previous highly biased and propaganda filled posts, I don't think you are doing a very good job of it. Have you checked this out?

https://www.adfontesmedia.com/wp-content...in-1024x759.jpg



Sue me! It bothers me when supposedly informed and morally superior people use politics as an excuse to destroy somebody's life. Hey, the Kav ran a gang rape operation, there isn't any evidence, but who needs eveidence! Hey, the Kav likes beer and when he was in high school he acted like a high schooler! Oh my god can you believe it? Hey, the Kav is a Justice on the Supreme Court! Politics have consequences, and I still hope that the Kav remembers exactly what the Democratic Party tried to do to him. I am an Irishman, I know all about holding grudges. I try not to, but there are a few that I can't let slide. It is human nature and more importantly, it is the nature of politics.

Who knows, maybe the Kav will burry the hatchet? The Irish in me asked where the hatchet will be buried.

I see the right wing gaslighting worked it's magic on you!

Why yes I have Mr LogT, but conservatives and trump supporters know that is a concoction by liberals to denigrate real news sources like Fox, Drudge, WND, etc.

If you read that in one of your highly rated news sources you got conned.

Absolutely no one said that. What was said was, he was at house parties where there were gang rapes. No one said he participated. No one said he promoted it.

The reason Democrats kept bringing up his drinking was not to make an issue of drinking but to find out if he got drunk enough to pass out and not know what the frak he was doing or what he did during a blackout. Dr Ford claimed he was very drunk. Is it not possible he was so drunk he assaulted her and did not remember it? why yes it is.

There are now too many stories from Yalies claiming J Kavananugh was drunk often and was so drunk he was incoherent. There is a claim he ran into another vehicle while drunk and told the owner to frak off. While I don't give a crap about him drinking or getting drunk, I do expect a SC nominee to accept responsibility for his actions and admit he got very drunk and may not have known what the frak he did when that drunk. That you can not see that (and you say you are Irish) happening amazes me. But then you are a hyper-partisan so it is believable.

I am amazed. All this talk about what Kavanaugh did, or didn't do, to women. Until that actually gets examined and investigated its just a charge (sorry) On the other hand, his behavior, whilst being questioned by the Senate and their 'investigator' (and then ignored by them that brought her to the party) displayed a man that should never be a judge. He is biased, believes conspiracy theories, is flat out partisan, etc. On top of that it turns out that several judges serving with him have complained to the supremes about him for, exactly, the same reasons.

So, the Kavanaugh/woman thing has taken over the entire story whilst he skates through known problems, demonstrated on live tv! I gotta tell you, the Republicans are GREAT at controlling the argument and changing the subject and they did it, yet again, in this instant. Hopefully we will all start to learn this lesson in the fullness of time?

I too find it more than a little bit deplorable, until I remember that
Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" was revived by Dick Armey of FreedomWorks, who made every volunteer and employee read it.

Quote:
The Prince' was written by Machiavelli for the Haves on how to hold power. 'Rules for Radicals' is written for the Have-Nots on how to take it away."

---Saul Alinsky

The trouble is, now that Republicans are in power, they haven't put down their new toy.
They're continuing to use principles in the book even though they already won.
They're clinging to Alinsky when they should have switched to Machiavelli.
So don't feel too bad, because in reality, we don't have to "become more like Republicans", we just have to remember where we tossed our dog-eared old copies of the Alinsky book.

Fake News.

What Tim really means is not that the reporting is factually inaccurate but that the articles are negative reports of the Trump administration.

Thus we could rate "news" sources on a positive and negative scale of the Trump administration and successfully name Tim's choices for news by whether the source is positive or negative. The more positive would be the source for Tim. If the outlet has a negative rating it would be a fake news source.

So lets check and see if my theory has any validity. Tim's choices are Washington Times, the Boston Herald, the Boston Globe, Drudge, WSJ.

Washington Times

Under Wes Pruden's editorship (1992-2008), The Washington Times was noted for its association with white supremacism, as it regularly printed excerpts from white supremacist publications, published laudatory pieces about white supremacists and the Confederacy, and published racially incendiary commentary about President Barack Obama


Boston Herald ... sad ... at one time a highly respected rag but for past 40 years it has been a tabloid akin to National Inquirer ... o and it was at one time owned by Murdoch.

Boston Globe ...

Yikes I would find it hard to believe Tim would read fake news

Drudge ...

But may I refer the reader to view current web page to see for himself the tabloid journalism which some pass off as "news"

WSJ ... editorial board is conservative while news side has a liberal bias ...

Thus I suspect Tim would rather read something to confirm his bias than be challenged by fact based reporting which cast doubts on the competence, integrity, and honesty of the Trump administration.



O and still waiting for proof of your claim Tim i.e. NYT is ultimate source of fake news.

Of course, the most egregious fake news generator is the Trump Administration.

The accusation of Kavanaugh is that he spiked punch so girls would become too drunk or high to resist unwanted advances (and rapes), not that he personally raped them. Other accusations are that he exposed himself and attempted to rape Dr. Ford.

That's just high school boys being boys? Drugging women? Attempted rape? I was pretty horny in High School, and I NEVER did that sort of thing. I touched a girl's crotch once, and she didn't think I might kill her: She laughed! Maybe it's because I wasn't stupid drunk and my other hand wasn't over her mouth. My hand has NEVER been over a woman's mouth. That's pretty close to strangulation, and strangulation is the most highly correlated act there is with homicide.

Pinning a girl down and not letting her get away, and then holding your hand over her mouth so she can't scream for help is essentially kidnapping. Something else I NEVER did in High School. In fact, never did ever.
