• Still waiting for that evidence that the report is false.
      Arguing on the basis of authority only works if one actually says who that authority is.

    • The Russians working the social media platforms in 2016 were learning from that creativity. As a feedback loop, being given a range of negative or positive responses helps shape the final product. Maybe it less about certain thoughts being given free reign than aggregators having data sets that...

    • Beat egg whites in a copper bowl until stiff but not dry.

    • they are lying about it because what they did and are still doing, it's killing them, they have no other recourse except to lie about it, it's the # 1 issue in the polls and it's killing them. Example:

    • the following from a related twitter thread by Noah Smith speaks to one of my long-time favorite rants in real life. How if Catholics worldwide would just quit following the preaching of Pope Paul VI's stupid heretical theories about birth control, living standards would go up in a lot of places...

    • Conflating general crime and punishment in the US with a political inquisition at the highest level of the DOJ is weak and a diversion. The Manafort case was opportunistically dragged into the witch-hunt for a PR display even though there was no connection to the Russian election meddling...

    • I am inspired by your comment about this not being a belief system: to point out that certain mental illnesses often seem to exhibit very similar narratives, i.e. the paranoid shizophrenic types obssessed with a "tin foil hat" type conspiracy about either microwaves or mind control by the...

    • When viewing the right wing talking points, it is interesting how small a worldview it is. The same arguments repeated over and over by the unverified visitor can be found word for word on Briebart, Drudge Report, Fox, and certain areas of Reddit.

    • I believe that people who have not been charged with a crime and have not pleaded guilty to any crime are innocent. I believe that people who have been charged with a crime, can afford and have good legal representation, who then plead guilty to that crime are guilty.

    • Well wow, Peter - welcome to America's justice system - simple Google tells you "about 90% of cases end in a plea bargain, and of those going to trial, 90% end in a guilty verdict".
      So are you going to pull out a new standard of cases "convicted of a crime by jury" to be valid? Presumably...

    • You know what, Peter? it doesn't matter - payoffs are payoffs, for true reasons or not - Trump hid payments during campaign season, so he's guilty of illegal campaign donations. Cohen has been testifying to this. That Mueller hasn't indicted a sitting President while under a bunch of threats to...

    • Wasn't there a love-child that verified the relationship in the Edward's scandal? Stormy was selling her accusation for profit without any evidence that it was true. The cheap payoff that she took for her non-disclosure leads me to think she was just a gold digger.

    • You are wallowing in a dirty fantasy, PP. Only one of Trump's associates has been convicted of a crime by a jury trial and Manafort's crimes had nothing to do with Trump, his campaign or the Russians. It's ironic that Manafort has been flipped by Mueller and may testify against Podesta if he is...

    • It's been well-established that these under the table payoffs during a campaign count as an undeclared contribution, I.e. illegal. This was as true for John Edwards as it was for Trump.

    • Yeah Flavius, you just don't understand how the legal system works. Someone, like Hillary, who has never  been charged with a crime or pleaded guilty is clearly guilty and should be locked up. But someone, like Cohen, who has been charged with a crime and pleaded guilty is innocent.

    • Flav, what accuser and what crime?  It seems like you and others are attempting to create the appearance of a crime and frame Trump for something you wish were a crime. Paying someone to not disclose a possibly embarrassing  non-crime is a legal financial transaction which you should know....
