The year 2019 is off to such a great start. To begin with the MSM has been caught in four great hoaxes or lies. They are getting worse and worse about this. They have such great hatred of the President any lie by anyone blows up into a massive breaking news, and then with egg on their face they have to retract it.

The simple fact is the MSM has KILLED journalism by becoming the propaganda machine for the DNC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Such a great start they cannot even keep the government operating, the stock market fluctuates like crazy, and talk of a major Recession coming in 2020, yeah the things are great because trump and the press continue to act like spoils children. Some of us expect more from those in power, seems some have lower expectations....

Economy booming, ISIS caliphate gone, China ready to end its unfair trade practices, as its economy flounders, record low unemployment, wages rising as highest rate in over a decade.

THINGS ARE TERRIBLE!! (If you ask a leftist, anyway!! ) :lamo

Trump cannot run the government without money. The House and Pelosi have yet to pass an acceptable budget bill.

Herr herr herrr........

/facepalm


Meuller didn't indicate which part or parts of the Buzzfeed report were "inaccurate".

The videos wingers claim completely exonerate actually show a bunch of brats doing "tomahawk chops" at a native while mocking him, mimicking his chant, etc., which isn't cool unless one has no problem with being racist. And really, the only things wrong with the initial reports were that they said the kids walked over to the native, when in fact, the native walked over, walked up and down the front of the crowd a bit, until they surrounded him, whereupon the stare down drum competition happened.

What other two?

PS: Trump, racism, and Russia are more important than any four mistakes of varying degree. You might have something if the NYT announced Russia had launched a nuclear missile, Fox talked about it, Trump heard about it, and then immediately launched a full retaliation. Then, you'd have an argument. Until then, it's just the usual RW false victimhood wank.

PSS: It is fundamentally dishonest to use one specific media outlet's mistake to attack the whole media.

PSSS: It is also reekingly hypocritical when RW media, especially places like brietbart, regularly **** up and you don't utter a peep then.

No doubt there are some genuine liberals who are secretly embarrassed by the fake news media (such as CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, etc.), but understandably they have to keep quiet.


Journalism no longer exists in the United States of America.


When the Democrats take control in January, 2021 (maybe President Harris / Castro / Biden, et al.), the media will sing the praises of the Democratic Party just as the media in China sing the praises of the (so-called) Communist Party.

IF the Democrats take control in January 2021, then there will likely be no peaceful way of turning back from their Marxism, as they will likely ignore the Constitution in order to keep a firm grip on their gained power. If they piss off enough of "flyover country" that way, then the potential for another civil war greatly increases.

What happened to the national crisis you and Trump and his other sycophants kept talking about? I haven't seen you tinkle in your adult diaper about that lately. Must not have been much of a crisis.

Stop making it so easy. Seriously. Jim Jones' supporters were more honest and clued in.

Still on the table.

Splendid! Then Pelosi can shove an open government up her ass, since she's not doing her Constitutional duty to fund it.

She cant her head is there.

The only bill the Liar on Chief will sign is one that includes funding for his wall. He knew that wasn't going to happen. This is Trump's shutdown; he said so himself.

As far as I'm concerned it's the same house of cards that the bush administration lived in. Economy great, fundamentals great, and then boom and things weren't so great...and ISIS is not gone and we are not safer from north korea, but let's worry about a wall.

No, we Americans learned our lesson in 1861 that violence just results in unspeakable grief and has lasting consequences down to the present day.

But I do agree with some people that in a hundred years or so, there may be a peaceful division of this nation.


In Czechoslovakia, for example, the Czechs and the Slovaks agreed to an amiable divorce.


There is no guarantee that the United States of America will remain one nation forever, either.


Conditions change, and we must change with them. Human beings (bless their little hearts) are very flexible, for they have no choice.

we have a president who can't get a US loan, is under investigation by the feds and the states, a stock market still in chop, government shut down over a vanity wall and Trump team members in jail or about to go to jail.

some Americans have a really, really low bar.
