  1. The Trumpers are really bad at their BS

    So, Quest, can you provide that information to 13 intelligence agencies, Congress, Senate, JCS, NSC, etc., because all of them still haven't gotten that memo?
  2. Protesters

    Using a typical Quest, Heel and other morons who support Trump vernacular- got proof?
  3. Ruh roh - indictments

    "There's zero chance whatsoever that Putin would've rather had Trump in office here than Hillary. Had no idea about Trump. Why would he want an unknown in rather than a known weak leader who he could easily take advantage of all the time." If you actually believe Trump was an "unknown" to Putin, you are sadly mistaken. Trump has been borrowing Russian money for a couple decades and he's beholden to the Russian oligarchs who loaned it to him and who also run the Kremlin. That's why the entire investigation is about following the money- because a sh!t-ton of Trump's money came from Russia, and now it's time to collect the debt. Ever watch the Sopranos back in the day? Remember the 2-3 episode story line of the sport goods store owner and the "bust-out?" That's exactly what this is.
  4. Wonder how this one will end

    It'll end up with a maladjusted kid stuck between a couple parents who are sadly mistaken that their efforts are in the "best interests of the child."
  5. No Quentin Tarantino type crap coming soon, we hope..... Congrats! Looking forward to seeing it.
  6. Ruh roh - indictments

    But the hole to bury your head in is much more shallow and is easier to dig.
  7. Instead of a Robert E. Lee statute at UVA......
  8. Trump is Killing It and Them Overseas

    There is so much wrong, scary and hair-raising in that one small sentence........ "Donald Trump" "adult" "needs to get involved" Anyone else want to question any reason I had for buying a place in Mexico?
  9. Trump's day so far

    And let's not forget the latest plea deal in the works... https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/15/politics/rick-gates-plea-deal-mueller-russia-investigation/index.html https://www.vox.com/2018/2/15/16955292/rick-gates-plea-deal http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/374146-gates-close-to-plea-deal-with-mueller-in-russia-probe-report Former Trump campaign adviser Richard Gates is reportedly close to a plea deal with special counsel Robert Mueller. Sources familiar with the case told CNN that Gates has been in negotiations for a plea deal for nearly a month. A plea deal with Mueller could indicate Gates is cooperating with the special counsel’s investigation. CNN reports that Gates has had a “Queen for a Day” interview with Mueller’s team, a term criminal lawyers use to describe an interview in which a defendant answers questions from prosecutors and can admit to crimes with few consequences. Meanwhile, Mueller’s investigators are planning to file new charges against Gates that are tax related, sources familiar with the investigation told the network. The additional charges could be used to pressure Gates into cooperating with Mueller’s team. Additional charges against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort are also being prepared, according to CNN, which reported that Gates's plea deal could be announced within the next week. Gates hired a top white-collar attorney last month that was spotted meeting twice with Mueller’s team. The former business associate of Manafort pleaded not guilty in October to eight charges in the probe, including money laundering. Manafort also pleaded not guilty to charges in the same case. Mueller has filed charges against four figures tied to President Trump in his probe, including Gates and Manafort, whose charges stem from work they did for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos have both pleaded guilty to charges from Mueller. Both Flynn and Papadopoulos have agreed to cooperate with Mueller in the investigation.
  10. Multiple new outlets reporting 16 dead. https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/14/us/florida-high-school-shooting/index.html
  11. Wikileaks chatlogs leaked: they're about what you would expect

    Anyone here who's actually listened to Assange and thought he was the least bit credible, intelligent, or guided by any moral need to do what he does is lying to themselves or everyone else. Regardless, a liar is a liar.
  12. Introduced in House (01/03/2017) ConcealedCarryReciprocityAct of 2017 This bill amends the federal criminal code to allow a qualified individual to carry a concealed handgun into or possess a concealed handgun in another state that allows individuals to carryconcealed firearms. A qualified individual must: (1) be eligible to possess, transport, or receive a firearm under federal law; (2) carry a valid photo identification document; and (3) carry a valid concealedcarry permit issued by any state or be eligible to carry a concealed firearm in his or her state of residence. Additionally, the bill specifies that a qualified individual who lawfully carries or possesses a concealed handgun in another state: (1) is not subject to the federal prohibition on possessing a firearm in a school zone, and (2) may carry or possess the concealed handgun in federally owned lands that are open to the public. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, this has passed the House. It basically allows Joe Smith, a resident of Arizona; one of the easiest states in the country to buy, carry and otherwise possess a firearm; to carry his concealed weapon into any state he wishes as long as his Arizona permit is valid. Let's remember that there is no national data base of firearm permits in this country; there is no national data base of purchased, registered or reported stolen handguns in this country. So, while Joe Smith may have had to do nothing more than sign his name to get a CCW permit in Arizona, he'd be completely okay to carry said weapon around Times Square on New Years Eve, in the state of New York, home of some of the strictest gun laws in the country. Keep on winning, Congress!
  13. Well, yes. But seeing how the affair was a mutual thing and there's no law against it, the impeachment process was meant as nothing more than a public humiliation effort. And questioning Trump would be so easy (if he were to actually answer the questions along these lines). And let's look at some of those who were doing the impeaching, shall we? 1. Helen Chenoweth-Hage, Representative (R-ID), called for the resignation of Bill Clinton, and then admitted in 1998 to having had a six-year affair with a married rancher before she entered government. Chenoweth said: "Fourteen years ago, when I was a private citizen and a single woman, I was involved in a relationship that I came to regret, that I'm not proud of....I only wish I could have learned the lessons sooner." 2. Bob Barr, Representative (R-GA), had an affair while married to his second wife. Barr was the first lawmaker in either chamber to call for Clinton's resignation due to the Lewinsky scandal. Barr lost a primary challenge less than three years after the impeachment proceedings. 3. Dan Burton, Representative (R-IN): In 1995 speaking of the then-recent affairs of Republican Robert Packwood and the unfolding affair of Democrat Bill Clinton Burton stated "No one, regardless of what party they serve, no one, regardless of what branch of government they serve, should be allowed to get away with these alleged sexual improprieties...." In 1998 Vanity Fair printed an article detailing an affair which Burton himself had in 1983 which produced a child. Before publication Burton admitted to fathering a son with a former state employee. 4. Robert Livingston, Representative (R-LA), called for the resignation of Bill Clinton and when his own extramarital affairs were leaked, his wife urged him to resign and urge Clinton to do likewise. 5. Newt Gingrich, Representative (R-GA) and leader of the Republican Revolution of 1994, resigned from the House after admitting in 1998 to having had an affair with a staffer while he was married to his second wife, and at the same time he was leading the impeachment of Bill Clinton for perjury regarding an affair with his intern Monica Lewinsky. 6. Henry Hyde, Representative (R-IL): in 1998, Salon.com stated that from 1965 to 1969 (before Hyde won federal office), he conducted an extramarital sexual affair with a married woman who had three children from her marriage. Hyde, who was 41 years old and married when the affair occurred, admitted to the affair in 1998, describing the relationship as a "youthful indiscretion".The revelation of this affair took place as Hyde was spearheading the impeachment hearings of President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal. 7. Pete Domenici Senator (R-NM) voted for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton in 1998 after his affair with Monica Lewinsky. In 2013 he confessed that in 1978 he fathered a son, Adam Laxalt, outside of his marriage; Adam Laxalt's mother is Michelle Laxalt, the daughter of Senator Paul Laxalt and a prominent Republican lobbyist.
  14. To be fair, Clinton's impeachment was for perjury and obstruction of justice; which is also still in the cards for Trump. And in the same vain, continuing to trot out comparisons to previous Presidents is not a Trumpian propaganda act, it's how the right constructs their talking points these days. Bill Clinton was first elected over 24 years ago, Hillary was never elected, yet the right continues to set their own Trump barometer on these 2 people. And if you listen to the right, they don't think much of either of the Clintons, so they've established their own metrics pretty fugging low, eh? So yeah, there are differing moral compasses when talking about a consensual affair versus blatant sexual assault and predatory behavior.
  15. If this were even remotely believable.... There's no law against giving your money to whomever you choose. And, if done like most normal people, it isn't even traceable or noticed. But why did he go through all the BS of setting up a fake Delaware LLC, using fake names....? And now, suddenly, he remembers, ".... oh yeah. I forgot. I paid her myself..." Gimme a fugging break.
