Chuck Todd Screams, Rages at Senator Ron Johnson for Daring to Note That He's a Biased Liberal

Fat clown.

Todd moaned and groaned and then said I have no idea why Fox News conspiracy propaganda stuff is popping up on here. I have no idea why were going here." When Johnson said this is why people hate the media, "This is not about the media! Senator Johnson, please!! As in "please stop criticizing the heroic press."

...

Then Todd turned to liberal Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy, who's used to softball interviews. Murphy was allowed to uncork long 180-word answers without Todd interjecting. Then Todd complained to Murphy, like they were teammates: "We have a major problem here. I mean, the-- the comfort level that the senator had to character assassinate the show and us-- in this-- in this bizarre, personal way I think shows you where we're headed. What do we do?"

19 I have to hand one thing to Trump. This is the first time I have ever seen the press engage in a rear-guard action. Ever, in my entire life. That they are mewling about how important they are negates the point they are trying to make.

They are cheats, sneaks and liars. Many have known this for a long time. No one who the Press is basically obligated to cover has ever had the balls to say it before, much less say it loudly and often.

They're impotent little weasels who hate their audience and lie constantly. The more the hem and haw about it, the better. Normal people see this for what it is - the barely-contained temper tantrums of spoiled children in grown-ups' bodies.

Indeed. The state is not allowed to impede or censor them. The state is *not* obligated to enable them in any way. Trump could revoke all of their press passes and provide nothing to them and there is no constitutional problem. He could start his own network and just play Nelson Muntz pointing and laughing at pictures of them on loop around the clock and there would be no violation.

This rejiggering they've done to try to sell the line of "you must support and enable us or else you're a censor" is absurd and insulting.

So, it sounds like the gout-ridden mansion-dwelling Man of the People had a heart attack, which prompted his doctors to place a stent in a blocked artery.

Here's what I don't get. If, like YD Sr., he had been making regular visits to a decent cardiologist, this should have been caught, and the stent should have been placed BEFORE the heart attack.

How does this socialist millionaire not have decent doctors looking at his heart, given his high-stress lifestyle of phony presidential campaigns for self-enrichment? It seems shortsighted to me.

No, it's much more than that.


The use of the term conspiracy theory is what allows them to de-legitimize and therefore censor whatever they label so and also allows them to wave off avenue of inquiry.


That's the vehicle they chose to de-platform Alex Jones that's also the excuse CNN used to deny Trumps PAC from running commercials this week on their network.


So the flagrant use of "conspiracy theory" to label everything they disagree with is intentional.

178 Willowed: As much as I'd like to see the Kurds free, if only because fuck Erdogan, they are not supportable. They're landlocked and surrounded by hostile powers. Assuming Iraq doesn't become a complete Iranian puppet, the only supply route to the Kurds either goes through the Persian Gulf or across Saudi Arabia and BOTH go across the width of Iraq.

The Press cannot work without access.

Some of the 'Press' outlets are partisan, so STOP that access.

Deny them any interviews. Kick them out of Press conferences. Do not tell them your schedule.

And make it an Executive order. Denying Access does NOT limit freedom of the press. They can print whatever crap they want (they will anyway), but it WILL point out their bias.

Make it clear, that when they become more even handed? When they are not so blatantly one sided? They can return.

You really think they're gonna stop, brother? Take another look at the map. That's really their objective and they've been making the same noise about needing a buffer from Iraqi Kurdistan.

You can somewhat understand some of the fundamentals in Syria. They are a sovereign nation and we've always told the KDF we're not there to hold ground. They have delayed the pullout, and this move is partially a bet they will move out before the Turkish offensive. It's a stupid bet by the president and if past is prologue, it's going to end badly. There are a lot of refugees and others the KDF and the U.S. are protecting, and frankly Trump's tweet was a vapid, stupid political statement. I support the president, but it appears to me he's surrounding himself with a lot of ass kissing sycophants.

what they are doing now is a continuation of the partisan witch hunt that started in 2015 and perhaps earlier.


The only way for this to have been a legitimate impeachment process is for the house to vote on instigating an impeachment inquiry, which would have given both the minority party and the President rights to issue, subpeona's call witnesses, etc.

I'm always surprised they like us so much considering how George H.W. Bush sold them out after the Gulf War. Saddam Husseing was looking to take his anger out on someone so he picked his old enemy the Kurds. The Iraqi military launched an offensive and used attack helicopters instead of jets to get around the no fly zone (I think that's what happened or else the no fly zone was the result of the offensive it's been a long time). Bush did nothing to stop it.

I don't necessarily disagree. But the new Iraqi government said they would seize Kurdistan by force if they tried to become an independent state. Don't forget a lot of the oil revenue comes out of Iraqi Kurdistan, so it was more about dollars. By the way, Trump, in his first move against the Kurds, said he would not support an independent Kurdistan. Now he's bending them over again. The Kurds always get screwed, and now we're part of the screw team.

245 We are seeing the Political weaponization of government power happen in real time folks.

Congress is using the subpoena power as a tool for opposition research. President needs to shut that down by signing an Executive order saying that Congress does NOT have oversite over the Executive Branch. He will of course, cooperate with a REAL impeachment inquiry, but he is exercising Executive Privilege as a co equal branch of the Government, short of that.

And he needs to tell STATE courts to get bent.

I don't necessarily disagree. But the new Iraqi government said they would seize Kurdistan by force if they tried to become an independent state. Don't forget a lot of the oil revenue comes out of Iraqi Kurdistan, so it was more about dollars. By the way, Trump, in his first move against the Kurds, said he would not support an independent Kurdistan. Now he's bending them over again. The Kurds always get screwed, and now we're part of the screw team.

Chuckie got an earful and the Senator was not going to stop because Johnson was irate at being lied to again (and again). Chuckie thought it was an accusation that the Senator wanted to appease the President? What the heck? Fox News? What the heck? I think Maria Bartiromo has smashed all the Sunday talkies and poor Chuckie, et al, are silent actors run over by real journalism.

People mistunderstand what Executive Orders can and cannot do. EO's can only direct the Executive Branch as to what to do; for example, he can order the bureaucracy to ignore Congressional demands. However, the Executive has no authority to tell Congress what to do, and no authority over the Judiciary either, so no EO can apply to either of those two branches. He also has no authority over State Courts or State Governments, absent National Security needs.

All in due time. We like to give them a little extra time to truly marinate in their sins and reject every chance at salvation. It gives their damned souls a nice smoky flavor.

324 >>I thought BroFu Omar couldn't divorce her current husband because she never divorced her brother so her 2nd marriage wasn't valid?

Nah, she cleaned that mess up before she got to Congress - but get this! - she used campaign funds to have the divorce done, and also lied 9 times on the legal form to have it done w/out participation from her brusband.

So, the clean-up caused a bigger mess with all of the perjury and campaign finance violations.

____________

I think she did divorce the brother/husband, but since that marriage was void from its inception under MN law, a divorce wasn't really necessary. Since the incestuous marriage was never legally valid, it could not have been an impediment to any subsequent divorce or marriage.

There's a skit on SNL during Desert Storm where President Bush the elder (Dana Carvey) does a speech where he uses Biblical, flowery language to warn Iraq, and the Iraqi press is shown being all impressed and appreciative. It was hilarious and effective.

Remember who the intended audience is.

350 Meaning she lied on her immigration papers and actually SHOULD be deported.
______________

She lied about her identity, not her marital status at that point. She came to the U.S. as a child, but she claimed to be part of the Omar family, which she was not. She was part of the Elmi family, and several of her siblings immigrated as "refugees" to the U.K. using that family name. It was one of those siblings, her gay brother, that she subsequently "married" in order to bring him into the U.S. to attend a public university here.

She has lied and perjured herself repeatedly, starting with lying about her own identity. She has committed immigration fraud, marriage fraud, tax fraud, and various campaign finance violations, and those are just the things we know about and can document. We can only guess at what other crimes she has committed.

No! The brother marriage was the legal one, her legit partner was referred to as her husband under her "faith traditions" - no legal paperwork (initially).

The marriage to her brother was performed by a Christian minister and was legal. That's why it was such a problem: he claimed husband in her campaign materials, interviews, etc. had no record of being her husband. Powerline and Sternberg figured this out when she was first running for state office 3 years ago.

She did officially marry him, IIRC, after she cleaned up the brother marriage, but NOW she's divorcing him, too.

_____________

I am aware that it was a "legal" marriage on paper. But as a matter of law in MN, a marriage between a sister and a brother is void from its inception, meaning it can never actually be a legal marriage, no matter what the marriage certificate says or who performed the marriage.
