How can there be any kind of "unity" when trump and the trumpophiles continue to lie and lie and lie just about everything. Does unity mean those whose beliefs are fact based have to accept the false reality the extreme right propagates? Common ground is based on shared realities of which there are none when the conservative version of events is totally fictitious yet believed hook, line, and sinker by delusional psychopaths. There cannot be any unity until the right rejects the lies.

You are a dear Roberta....and hey.....that’s from my ticker ❤️.

RX 1029am - Is there just a bit of hubris in your certainty of which side has been doing all the lying?

And just for drill, in the above examples, do you understand the difference between disclosures of giving/getting, and soliciting unification and questioning the methodology used by the solicitor?

If you want to be taken seriously here, don't link to CNN.

11:50 -- what about Breitbart, Fox News, Daily Caller, Newsmax, and the other often quoted sources posted here... should I take them seriously?

FYI --in case you didn't know this already, but CNN was started by arch conservative Ted Turner as a counter voice to Walter Cronkite and other mainstream news sources he thought were too liberal. How times change..

Re CNN et al. All institutions (e.g. Ford and Rockefeller Foundations) that have been co-opted from their origins and founders' intents have been co-opted by and for the Left. That itself demonstrates the ignorance of the Right which longer has its act together. Privately maintaining your principles without also defending them in the public square never works. What freedom you want to practice privately, you must always defend publicly.

‘Washington Post Publisher: Biden Is Failing His First Major Test of a Campaign Promise‘

“President Biden is facing his first major test of a campaign promise and, it appears, he’s about to fail it . . .

It appears as though under the Biden administration, despots who offer momentarily strategic value to the United States might be given a “one free murder” pass . . .

There is no legal, moral or logical reason to apply sanctions to the lower-level players in this conspiracy, who were following orders, while letting the criminal mastermind get away without consequence. In fact, it’s contrary to the American system of justice, which always works to go up the chain of responsibility to land the person ultimately accountable for serious crimes. The man whom Biden described as a “pariah” is about to escape personal liability for a murder he ordered as we offer diplomatic-speak about “recalibration” rather than insist on accountability. As other tyrants in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world watch Mohammed escape without personal consequence for his brutal behavior, not only is his hand strengthened but the others become emboldened to do the same.

The Biden administration could argue that this approach to MBS is carefully calibrated and a just-tough-enough response to a complicated problem. And they could argue that applying sanctions to MBS would do lasting damage to U.S.–Saudi relations that are not in long-term American interests. But that would mean admitting that Biden’s campaign-trail promise of “make them pay the price and make them, in fact, the pariah that they are” — along with a pledge to end all arms sales to the kingdom — was oversimplified and overwrought campaign-trail rhetoric.

In other words, it would require the likes of Jen Psaki to admit that what Biden said back in November 2019 was just campaign-trail rhetoric, and that it was never meant to be taken seriously as a policy proposal.

UPDATE: Robin Wright of The New Yorker offers a similarly scathing assessment, concluding that Biden talked tough during the campaign and then wimped out once he was in office.

Biden has done nothing to punish M.B.S. Absolutely nothing—to the astonishment of human-rights groups, foreign-policy experts, Saudi activists, and even some on his own staff. For days, the Administration had pledged that Biden, unlike Trump, would both take punitive measures and recalibrate the relationship. Biden’s response would symbolize his tough stance on human rights globally, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said, last week. “He will not hold back, and he will speak out when there are concerns he has about human-rights abuses, about the lack of freedom of speech or the lack of freedom of media and expression,” Psaki told journalists. But the Administration didn’t even mention M.B.S.’s name in the punitive sanctions that it announced after releasing the intelligence report. On Saturday, Biden refused to answer questions shouted by the press pool about whether he intended to punish the Saudi royal.”

Column: CNN Should Shut Up About ‘Misinformation’

https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/tim-graham/2021/02/26/column-cnn-should-shut-about-misinformation

And why that fake-new junkie and mass spreader of misinformation , that man-boy Rechard Maddow still has a job is beyond me after building his entire career on the Russian Collusion Delusion and trying endlessly (and unsuccessfully) to debunk Spygate....which is true despite Wikipedia calling it as of today a conspiracy theory.

Bobbie, you might have a smidgen more creditability here if you didn’t go off the trails over Trump’s 4th of July parade in Washington DC in 2019..claiming most confidently that Trump was going to declare martial law, surround himself with troops, and appoint himself dictator for life. Connect the dots. Trump wants to showcase our military on the Fourth of July with a tank in the parade and our jets flying over the festivities means...means Trump is going to appoint himself God Emperor for Life....exactly confirming your deepest and oft stated fears. It’s true!!

Fear is the big one. The words ‘tanks in Washington DC’ and ‘the 4th of July’ really triggered you and sent you over the rails. Big derailment. ‘Tanks’ is one thing, but the ‘4th of July’ was the real trigger, I reckon.


You are in good company. Bobbie. Lots of those who participate in class warfare really really hate the ‘4th of July’ as much as the word, ‘Christmas’. You have a heavy cross to bear, pun intended.

PS: Bobbie, your deepest fears have come true. Washington DC is now surrounded by thousands upon thousands of troops. You were just a wee bit premature in your well sourced prediction about the coup. It is just you had the wrong President. Simple mistake....anyone of us could have fallen for that Whooper...not!

They are coming for you. Hide under Punchy’s Ann Coulter doll....and don’t look up under her skirt this time, ok?

Poor Babs...Add him to the list of fearful LIBS that demand all Conservative news be yanked from cable providers. Not just Fascistbook or twittworld.
You DO know what's called Bobby? Fascism.
"two Democratic members of Congress sent letters to the presidents of Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, Cox, Dish, and other cable and satellite companies implying that they should either stop carrying Fox News, One America News Network, and Newsmax or pressure them to change their coverage. According to the lawmakers, these conservative channels are responsible for promoting misinformation and political violence."
https://reason.com/2021/02/22/eshoo-mcnerney-letter-fox-news-newsmax-oann-comcast-misinformation/

No complaints from LIB news about BLM, ANTIFA violence for months on end.
That's OK... Right Bobby?

OK Babs,, have any proof that Conservative news is fake news?
Try something called,, *FACTS*..

George 12:51-- All institutions (e.g. Ford and Rockefeller Foundations) that have been co-opted from their origins and founders' intents have been co-opted by and for the Left."

What about Heritage, Hoover, American Enterprise institute, National chamber of Commerce, and numerous others...have they not been co-opted by and for the right?

RE: 11:47 -- I stand by my statements at 9:47 -- You can believe whatever you want George... but that does not make it true. According to all legal standards there was no election fraud. period paragraph..

Another gift from a soros funded DA oh never mind he was just an old asian close to death, Chesa Boudin has sparked outrage on social media after telling the New York Times that 19-year-old Antoine Watson was "in some sort of a temper tantrum" -

ABC7's Dion Lim spoke with Ratanapakdee's family, who said that a temper tantrum is "no excuse" for murdering someone. In addition, she obtained police documents showing Watson was "seen on surveillance going to a BMW after the crime— retrieving a cell phone & walk back to Ratanapakdee & appear to take photos of him as he was dying."

RX 716pm - co-opt = divert to or use in a role different from the usual or original one. The only one of your list one can argue that has been co-opted - and also toward the corporatist Left - is the National Chamber of Commerce. The others have remained true to their founding commissions.

Can we unify in reality on this at least? -

The alignment of our regional partners and allies in both the economic and security domains will ensure that the legacy of the Accords incentivizes other states to normalize relations with Israel and forge new economic and security partnerships to meet the myriad challenges posed not only by Iran, but also by the malign influence of China and Russia.

Following the announcement of diplomatic normalization between Israel and the UAE in August of last year, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco quickly followed suit. What motivated this move? Certainly, the threat from violent extremism and Iran animated the members, but so too did the promise of cooperation and recovery from the pandemic’s impact on their economies.

How can the U.S. capitalize on this momentum to persuade other countries to join and expand the Accords? The first step is to establish trust. This begins with cooperation on security threats that preoccupy the region’s leaders. In addition to restating joint commitments to counter violent extremism, we should ensure close collaboration to address the regional threat from Iran and its surrogates. The State Department can rapidly affirm the interagency review that approved of arms sales providing our regional partners with the tools required to combat shared threats, recognizing that both Russia and China would be happy to fill the void without restrictions.

Aha, I am beginning to catch on to this unity thang. It’s not reciting facts that is the issue here. It’s how people respond to facts that is the real issue. Off with her head!

‘Student Journalist Settles With ASU After Being Fired Over Tweet About Jacob Blake’

“So, it wasn’t for the views she expressed, it was for how students reacted to those views, which is somehow different. Instead of explaining to the allegedly offended students why Klein’s tweet was an act of journalism — providing context to a bigger story — the school took action against Klein.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/student-journalist-settles-with-asu-after-being-fired-over-tweet-about-jacob-blake

Best not to read why Blake had a warrant for his physical arrest and to henceforth be brought before the bench, per judge’s order.
