When will we, as Americans, wise up? We have become so naive in so many ways. We’ve been conned by so many of the world’s countries that it’s shameful.

We send money to countries that have no respect for us. We have covered the legitimate bills of other countries that they owe to international organizations. We sold/gave technologies to countries who oppose us – pick any Communist country. We establish favorable trade policies with China to the extent that we’ve become far too dependent upon one Communist country for goods and services. Whoever thought that was a good idea? Nixon? Clinton? There’s blame for all sides. It’s apparently become politically incorrect to use China’s name in a negative manner.

If a publication puts something in print, too many consider it to be gospel. The Washington Post, New York Times, Huffington Post and Mother Jones (aka MoJo), among others can print no wrong, according to many leftists. Even if they print stuff from anonymous sources without sufficient verification techniques, too many believe it because they read it — even after the report is proven false.

In one of the more recent displays of anti-Trumpism, The Atlantic has chimed in. In a published article, this magazine has claimed that Donald Trump (You know him. He’s the one who legally won the last presidential election by defeating the one formerly known as “The Smartest Woman in the World.”) made disparaging remarks about American war dead — fallen warriors. Each of the following quotes was taken from The Atlantic (9/3/20) article about Trump’s alleged verbal transgressions: “But according to sources…” “According to sources with knowledge…” “…according to three sources with direct knowledge of this event…” “…according to four people with firsthand knowledge…” Not one source was identified who could or would verify the alleged information allegedly supplied to this allegedly reliable publication.

It is noted that John Bolton (no friend of Trump’s said of The Atlantic report, “That’s simply not true.” He was there. Military general officers have said it didn’t happen. So much for The Atlantic’s credibility and impartiality.

Such is the state of the politics of personal destruction today. Create fictitious information (lies), and then attack the lies. For the left, it’s a time-honored technique. As evidence, I submit the leftist claim that Republicans will cut/eliminate Social Security — claimed by leftists for decades but never done.

Remember former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid? He publicly lied about Mitt Romney not paying taxes. While admitting the lie (after the election) Reid laughed saying, “Romney didn’t win, did he?” (Washington Post, 9/15/16. Just saying stuff is not going to convince rational people, but too many are naive.

I don’t intend to discuss the very latest “reveal” by Bob Woodward. This ordinary reporter peaked back at Watergate and has been riding that tired horse ever since. His latest is just another case of much ado about nothing. It seems that Woodward thinks that Trump, upon learning of COVID-19, should have run through the streets shouting that the sky was falling – thus alarming the American public instead of staying calm. As stated, Woodward peaked years ago, but still needs to pay the bills. Thus, he slings trash.

Let’s check to see who’s been paying attention for the past three years. Since being elected how many “bombshells” have been dropped on Trump? Now, how many have been direct hits? How many have been duds? Have you noticed the trend? Here’s a clue. He’s still standing. The longer he stands, the more leftists seem to come down with Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Chuck Schumer said of The Atlantic’s story, “This time the evidence was totally believable.” I have come to listen carefully to the words emanating from leftists because, to their credit, they’ve become experts in word manipulation. Note that Schumer didn’t say that the evidence was factual or true. He said that it’s “believable.” Think about the nuance.

Did they stop telling the children’s story “Aesop’s Fables” about the boy who cried wolf? Seems a large segment of the population hasn’t learned the childhood lesson. The left has “cried wolf” countless times since 2016. So far? “Absolutamente nada!”

Good to see Reek and CDeez out capin' for the clowns. The clown congregation was truly underrepresented until the 2 of you showed up. Good lookin' out.

PurplePickles

@NMP

Did you know that at one time Eric wanted to be a clown, but scary clowns are not popular at birthday parties so instead he and his clown friends decided to branch out and post their clown comments on the FNP forums.

Now I for one have not laughed once at their comments. I've rolled my eyes and face palmed myself, and I have wanted to stab myself in the eye at the stunning lack of substance they display, but what do I expect from clowns? But the clown persona they have down pat.

NewMarketParent

@PurplePickles

You should read up on the double face-palm. It was first rumored to be used by Sir Patrick Stuart as Captain Picard in Star Trek. It is a beauty to behold. I practice it daily as I read their comments. They are about as disingenuous as it gets. I usually wait until the weekends to start drinking though. Reek seems to want the world to believe he is a POC, but I have caught him here multiple times letting his real identity slip. Of course, I know the reason he masked his fake POC identity. It is because he wanted to shut down any sort of empathy to POC by using his fake POC status to cape for white supremacy.

PurplePickles

@NMP

I’m not sure why Eric is determined to personify a POC? You can’t personify someone your not because it will come off as fake and people will see right through your persona, you were able to see through it because you are a POC.

Like I said Eric is trying to work on his persona’s, but you as you can see it isn’t going well for him. I think he should practice his tough/macho persona instead , that he may be able to perfect, but it’s going to take him awhile longer?

NewMarketParent

@PurplePickles

When you scratch the surface, you find that most of them live a life full of fear. I blame Faux News. It has literally reinforced this false notion that the world is a big, scary place. I refuse to believe that. There are definitely bad actors and there is little doubt in my mind about that, but the statistics don't support the notion that the bad people are that significant portion of the population.

As technology increases, so does the effectiveness of bad actors, but so does the reach of the good people and the helpers. The older I get, the more I want to be one of the helpers. Some people just want to watch the world burn, but I want this place to be better for everyone than when I got here.

Yet it seems like the Trump-flu has taken the brains and logic and ethical fiber of the loonies on the right and flushed it like the diarrhea that comes out of Trump's mouth daily, only so they can absorb more lies. It's like a contest to see who's the stupidest and most dishonest of the stupids and dishonest...or a competition among town drunks to see who can get drunker.

matts853

Trump’s immoral cover up of the lethality of Covid reminds me of the movie Jaws (one of my faves):

The Mayor of Amity Island knew Jaws was out there eating people and was told by Hooper and the chief not to open the beaches on the 4th of July. But he ignored them and lied to the public about the shark having already been caught, and surprise: the shark ate more people.

Brilliant, Donald, just brilliant.

Greg F

It's just a wee rabbit...harmless....

matts853

Hey Rich, try these duds on for size. Trump quotes from an April 13 audio recording discussion Covid with Bob Woodward - you know the guy that Trump himself called like 18 times. And he said all this the day after Easter, you know when he wanted to open everything up when he knew lives would be in danger:

“...a killer if it gets you. If you’re the wrong person, you don’t have a chance.” (I wonder, does he mean like his dearly departed friend Herman Cain who caught it at a rally and died 3 weeks later? He might have wanted to know this.)

It “rips you apart.”

And my favorite: “It is the plague.”

But it in public he was saying it was just a “hoax.”

You must love being lied to Rick.

bosco

You need to fact check that hoax theory, Matt, and post what was actually said.

[ninja]

matts853

Semantics, Bosco. Regardless of whether he was referring to the virus itself as a hoax or democrat criticism of his (mis)handling of it, it was irresponsible to use that word under that context. And it doesn’t excuse all the blatant and incessant lies he sold the American public.

threecents

[thumbup]Matt. The fact is that millions of Trump supporters believed the virus hype was a hoax because of what Trump said. And they failed to take precautions because of that. There is no way of getting around that, and I think that is going to hurt Trump in November.

Well Des, while you peddle conjecture and anecdotes to fit your purposes, I deal in facts. For example this little tidbit from the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference in the 2016 election. Here it is in black white, tovarisch Des:

“Taken as a whole, Manafort's high level access and willingness to share information with individuals closely affiliated with the Russian intelligence services, particularly Kilimnik and associates of Oleg Deripaska, represented a grave counterintelligence threat."

And don’t try and tell me that Manafort, Jr. and Kushner were operating in a vacuum without Trump‘s full knowledge and support.

They worked directly with a Russian Intelligence Officer, Dave. Think about it.

Science is tested and true over your puny opinion, which is sh** thrown up against a wall to see if it sticks.

matts853

This guy is totally out of his mind. I think he may be the single most depraved, naive, and obtuse Trump supporter I’ve ever heard. He cherry picks a few examples of things the terrible “lefties” have done and just looks right past the fact that Trump has done some of the same things and more but far worse by an order of magnitude.

The flagship channel for the Trump cult is FOX “News”. It’s viewers are mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed poo. That network’s sole mission is to cover up Trump’s lies - the man is a chronic, pathological liar so business is good - and spread misinformation about the “left”.

Trump spreads more fear than the wildfires in California. The election is rigged! The dems are going to destroy your suburbs! There’s people wearing black suits flying all over the country to get you! This is the stuff of pure madness and demagoguery.

Mr. Richard, here’s all you need to know about Trump the traitor: 1. He is mentally unstable; 2. He is actively trying to subvert our election; 3. Trump LIED - constantly - about the pandemic. He put your life and mine in danger and caused the needless death of 10s of thousands of Americans by COVERING UP the severity of Covid. He’s the one that panicked because he knew it would be bad for his campaign; 4. Any person with the gall to mock John McCain’s heroism when he bought his way out of Vietnam with a letter from his daddy’s doctor is depraved and more than capable of uttering perverse words about our service members.

You divert, spin and, often, argue against your own self interests. As far as fracking goes, that industry is slowly ripening on the vine and will soon go by the wayside due to a glut of oil. The sad part is, decaying piplines, toxic sludge and poisoned land and water will be left behind for taxpayers to deal with. Keep your head buried in the sand.

threecents

In some case the evidence against Trump is so overwhelming that his followers end up saying yah, but,... at least he's honest, which, yah, still makes our heads explode, so at least Pdl and Bosco are happy.

shiftless88

I truly wonder if he COULD murder someone on 5th Ave and retain support. It is not clear that many of his supporters would ever drop their support. Cult of Personality.

NewMarketParent

@threecents

But, we know they aren't really happy. No one who supports this cult is really happy. They just live to clutch their pearls when a black man wears a suit while president, while doing the snoopy dance when their guy steals their last $20 as long as he promises to put brown babies in cages.

pdl603

The sad thing is that you actually believe The Party lies they force feed you on a daily basis. How does it feel to be lied to on a daily basis? Oh, I forgot to mention that today is Sept. 14, 2020 and Barrack is the most corrupt president ever and Hillary isn’t president.

bosco

Pdl603, another flip flop on fracking? Are they for it or agin it? Which way is the wind blowing today?

[ninja]

pdl603

IDK, but when he reads from a teleprompter at his next staged presser maybe we’ll find out.

phydeaux994

Trump reads everything from a teleprompter for hours in the same monotone voice while he lays on and hugs the podium. He is a sick, deranged man who went secretly to Walter Reed to be treated for a mini-stroke and a LIE extraction, both of which failed.

hayduke2

There you go, divert and create a strawman. Honestly Bosco, can you deny that Trump lied about the virus, still lies about it, puts hundreds at risk with this rallies, basically told Woodward that the stock market is more important than 190,000 American lives, disparages generals and service members, plays at being religious, and gives a crap about the average American. Is your own ego so fragile that you can't admit any of this might just make him unfit to lead this country? Sad. ( BTW, I expect some snarky comment about this making the leftists..... ) You have a nice day on Fantasy Island.

bosco

So, yes or no answer hayduke2, does Biden use a teleprompter to answer pre-arranged questions at his so-called press conferences? Yes or no?

[ninja]

hayduke2

I don't know and neither do you for sure. I do know that earlier claims like this have been refuted - https://apnews.com/afs:Content:9084540270 However, you failed to answer my question and used your divert and deny method once again.

awteam2000

Bosco, Trump demonstrated he can’t read a teleprompter when he made a historical blunder during his Fourth of July “Salute to America” speech, when he said that the Continental Army “took over the airports” from the British during the American Revolutionary War in the 1770s. Or could he be simply unknowingly ignorant?

In case you don’t know, the airplane is a 20th century invention. The first powered flight of an airplane was officially attributed to the Wright brothers, who accomplished their feat in 1903. Trump also praised the Wright brothers earlier in his Independence Day speech.🤷‍♂️

bosco

Hayduke2, thanks for your old link from when Biden was still Hiden' Try some more current news when Wheezy couldn't answer a prepared question without the teleprompter.

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/09/08/biden_caught_on_tape_asking_staff_to_adjust_teleprompter_before_answering_voters_question.html

And watch his spokesman dodge and divert:

https://thehill.com/homenews/media/515990-biden-spokesman-ducks-answering-foxs-baier-on-biden-teleprompter-use

And then Biden holds up a photo and you can see the teleprompter reflected in the glass:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86CGv7mjKWk

I wonder if they'll allow him to use his teleprompter at the debates?

[ninja]

hayduke2

AND exactly what does he use or not use of a teleprompter have to do with my question. Divert all you want but actually answer my question Bosco! Why won't you?

hayduke2

See my 2:48 comment if you forget the question. Let me see how you run and hide from it.

bosco

Was there a question in there, hayduke2? I thought you were just pontificating and passing gas, just like your state run media is wont to do.

How's wheezy doing today? Any teleprompter glitches? Looking forward to the debates? Set your DVR for Trump's town hall on ABC Tuesday night and see if you can catch any pre-arranged questions and the answers on a teleprompter.

[ninja]

hayduke2

As I thought Bosco. Can' answer the questions so you run, hide and call names. Pitiful.

hayduke2

Here is is again Bosco. Run away from it. Hey Bosco - answer the question I posed to Rick earlier - "Please tell me how you will explain away Trump's own words on tape to Bob Woodward? How he put the stock market ( and maybe his own wealth ) ahead of being honest with Americans, how he just held a rally inside with no mask requirements or safeguards when he knows how deadly this virus is and how easily transmitted it is, how he and staff ran out of a meeting when someone sneezed because of his knowledge of the virus, how he called Bob Woodward a number of times to initiate the converstation ( so it is not a gotcha kind of thing) ? How about how he leaned on the CDC and DHS to change reports to make them more favorable to Trump? Come on man.

NewMarketParent

@hayduke2

Reek only wants to beat up his strawman. That is his safe space.

phydeaux994

What gets me is that Trump passed off managing the Pandemic on the Governors because he didn’t have a clue what to do so the Governor of Nevada puts restrictions on large gatherings and requires social distancing and wearing masks and Trump says “screw you Guv, I’ll do anything I dang well please because I can as President of the United States and Grand Potentate and Master of the lowly Masses and you can’t stop me”. Na Na a Na Na.

And of course, Reek and his buddy, C.D. come caping for Blatchford.

smassaros

Mr. Blatchford, how can anyone anywhere criticize an Atlantic reporter for not specifying sources when Mr. Trump daily utters imaginings based on “people are saying,” “I know a guy who,” etc? No one is saying. He doesn’t know a guy. It’s all stream of consciousness and it is treasonous because it undermines our country’s stability. Not to mention Mr. Trump himself has belittled soldiers on video and audio talk shows FOR YEARS. There seems to be a knee-jerk reaction on the part of Trump believers to automatically lump anyone critical of him with The Left. Come on. Most of us are Center. Biden isn’t going to roll over for any AOC or Sanders. He will work with them, but he will work with the Blatchford’s of the world, too. This country has already moved beyond Trump. Even if he “wins,” we’ve left him behind.

gary4books

The story of the boy and the wolf is interesting. The boy lied so much that few (if any) believed him when he told the truth. And now that Woodward has the truth on tape, Rick is not willing to believe him. Why not? Are facts irrelevant? Trump does lie, so do all liars think that everyone lies? And their followers do agree?

Dwasserba

"A lot of people are saying" the voice on tape is Alec Baldwin.

gary4books

They seem to be stark raving mad.

shiftless88

The railing against unnamed sources is funny from a group that believes Trump when he says "Some people say...."

NewMarketParent

@shiftless88

These people also believed in Pizzagate, Jade Helm, Massacre of Bolling Green, and other assorted Qanon quack theories. They wouldn't know the truth if it sat on their chest and fed them pizza in their mom's basements.

olefool

This whole letter, and the comments of the Russian trolls CD and bosco, shine a bright light on what the word "DUD" really says... Yep, first the "dud" letter, written by a prolific "dud" writer, and then the "dud" comments, spouted by the usual "dud" authors again falls short of reality.

bosco

Yep, olefool, that Atlantic article was a dud ok. How's the investigation into story that Biden sniffs little girls bicycle seats coming along. Two unnamed sources corroborated each other's story and Schumer said it's believable. [ninja]

phydeaux994

bosco, I first heard your sick, nasty, little “snif” thing at Hyattsville Jr. HS in the early 1950’s and never heard it again until you started using it over and over lately. Have you been hanging around 7th graders lately?? 👃🤮

public-redux

“It seems that Woodward thinks that Trump, upon learning of COVID-19, should have run through the streets shouting that the sky was falling...”

I know Rick is a stickler for accuracy [wink] so I hope he will pop into the comments with a citation for this claim.

threecents

Are you suggesting that maybe Trump should have told the public what he believed to be true - rather than the opposite of what he believed to be true?

bosco

I watched the 60 Minutes interview and noted a few dates as it went along. 1/28 Trump gets the briefing about the virus from the security advisor, 1/29 he forms a task force to address the virus, 1/31 he starts restricting travel from China, 2/4 he addresses the virus in his SOU address but Pelosi is too busy pre-tearing her copy to notice, 2/7 Trump tells Woodward it's deadly stuff worse than the flu, 3/19 Trump tells Woodward he played it down so as not to create panic.

Scott Pelly chastised Woodward at the end of the interview for putting his finger on the scale and switching from reporter to editor when he said the same thing he had been saying on CNN for years that Trump is an unfit president.

What if Trump had stressed how bad the virus was, weve had five deaths in the US, we had no vaccine, and he's shutting down the country? Do you think the Dems would've cried it was a distraction from the impeachment hearings? Do you think you'd be able to find any toilet paper on the shelves yet?

If the Dems and their state run media knew how deadly it was then, would Pelosi still have done her come on down to Chinatown tour?

The hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

Reek won't answer because he is tired of getting dunked on.

No, I’m suggesting that Rick has absolutely no basis for asserting that Woodward thinks Trump should have behaved in anything remotely similar to Rick’s characterization. I could be wrong. I await Rick’s citation.

Nope. He just dropped a stinky and threw up the peace sign.

We've heard them. As if we ever thought a President should "jump up and down"...in the great tradition of Presidents who jump up and down. As if there are no other behavior choices. As if he would not be addressing ...adults. Withstanding bad news and adapting is what adults are expected to do. All those dead people he protected from the truth would back me up.

awteam2000

Screams from a man about to be hung: “I didn’t do it”. “ it wasn’t me”, “the other guy did it“, “he had it coming”, “ Do you believe a guy like me would do anything like that?“ My all time favorite, “the b**** set me up.”

pdl603

Only Presidential Trump could make Democrats against peace in the Middle East, but as many Arab countries line up to normalize relations with Israel only the left and corporate media have down played its significance. This is why Rick’s LTE is spot on. The intolerant left cannot accept that Trump has succeeded where they have failed miserably, so they have to lie.

Greg F

Your are really reaching there swamp dweller.

bosco

How's the confirmation on that Atlantic story coming along GregF. Does Schiff have the irrefutable proof locked away in his star chamber files? You better hope it wasn't on those 27 cellphones used by the Muller investigators that all got accidentally wiped of all data. In the meantime, the Chinese and the Iranians are working to get Biden elected. Why do you think that is? Hunter's business deals with China. Another pallet of cash for the mullahas? Are you ready for an investigation into Chinese collusion with the Biden campaign?

[ninja]

smassaros

Biscotti, Schiff did not write the Atlantic piece, so he wouldn’t have any info locked away. Mr. Trump has mocked soldiers for years. It is on video and audio for all to sees. TV talk shows, radio talk shows, the 2016 campaign. Are you sure Iran and China are pushing Biden? Or is it yet more propaganda generated by the Trump unfiltered mouth?

awteam2000

I agree 100%, pdl, especially with your last sentence. The left can't accept anything positive about Trump despite all the good he's done. Their miserable failings are more than evident, and are going to cost them the election in November.

@Roscoe

You ain't never gonna own them boots, fake POC.

bosco

If Trump's for it, the left is agin it. For example, Biden and Harris are sowing fear about the vaccine being developed under Operation Warp Speed. So, if they were to win the election, they'll flush all of that vaccine down the drain and start all over with the usual 2-year approval process? Is that their plan? So far, their plan is Orange Man Bad.

Like jerry says here, the hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

NewMarketParent

If it isn't my favorite fake POC, Roscoe.

threecents

Bosco, I missed that. Do you have a reference? I googled it and didn't find it. All I found were statements that Biden and Harris would not take Trump's word about the safety of a vaccine - which makes sense because Trump used to champion the anti-vaccine movement, and he still supported hydroxychloroquine treatment even after clinical studies showed it not only did not work, but it contributed to the death of some Covid-19 patients. I did find that Biden is working on a vaccine distribution plan. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/bidens-covid-19-adviser-vivek-murthy-says-candidate-has-already-started-vaccine-distribution-plan/

There will be a vaccine. It will have been tested. It will not be available tomorrow. Biden and Harris are not against a vaccine.

threecents

Bosco, I already googled it and did not find it. This is like when you and Rick claimed we could get N95 masks from Home Depot. You couldn't then, and you can't now because there is still a shortage, which is still affecting hospitals and labs, as well as the carpenters and gardeners who used to use them.

Dwasserba

Get the vaccine.

PurplePickles

@Bosco/Eric Trump

Eric you mean to tell me you would take a vaccine that hasn't had enough time to be thoroughly tested? I know Ivanka said she would, I'll tell you what you and Ivanka go first, then I'm pretty sure Biden and Harris will stop sowing fear about a warp speed vaccine. If you and Ivanka will volunteer to go first and have the vaccine to shows us it's safe and no side effects. Though with you Eric the side effects may be hard to tell apart from you just being Eric. But go first since you know a warp speed vaccine is safe.

DickD

Better said, Bosco, if Trump says it, it must be a lie! Because he doesn't know how to tell the truth - wait a minute, he told Woodward the truth it was the rest of us that he lied too. lol

matts853

If Trump’s for something, then It’s a bad idea Roscoe.

DickD

How would Trump or anyone that supports Trump know what is or is not a lie? If you believe Trump's lies, you will believe anything!

fjulia

Great LTE Rick, your shoveling of the lies, bootlicking support for the adulterer & failed man, and regurgitation of "conservative" pundits is laudable. I am sure all those "losers" who died since 9/11 applaud you. Among all those generals, what did Gen. Kelly say?

pdl603

Great LTE, Rick. Your analysis of the tactics used by the left is spot on.

Greg F

He should read this while looking in a mirror...it’s all projection of himself and the right into others.
