Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

I think when the dust settles, ex-FBI Director, Robert Meuller will have nipped and supped more on Democrat whale carcasses than the alive and sitting "Orange Tweeter".

In fact, if I were Susan "a video caused the Benghazi murders" Rice, James Crap...er...Clapper, John Podesta, Hillary and the rest of the D.C. Uniparty vermin of liars, ideologues, schemers and propagandists, I'd be booking flights to non-extradition countries.

"The Russians are coming, the Russians are coming!"

No, indeed not! "Justice is coming, justice is coming!" LOL !!!!!!!

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

...In other news, a Special Prosecutor has been named, and his name is Mueller. He will be the shark who is designated to swim closest to the whale. Will he nip? Will he bite? Will he disembowel the hapless Orange Tweeter? Hang on to your hats kids, it's about to get exciting.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Grove,
Is this a murder theory from the same guy who claimed there is a national network of armed lesbians roaming the country and sexually assaulting children? I think Clancy is a bit better than that.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@LoveBC,

I'm curious to see where this investigation of the Rich murder leads. Guy leaks thousands of DNC emails to Wikileaks and ends up shot by two men who make no attempt to rob him?

It's something straight out of a Clancy novel. I hope it's not something that can be swept under the rug. I also hope something leaks to help identify who made the call to end this man's life.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Imagine if Comey were instrumental in bringing down both Clinton and Trump. Saved by bureaucracy?

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Lot of tit for tat. The former FBI director was right to investigate both the Clinton and Trump camps. They are all self centered game players.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Who actually pays attention to, or believes anything "Lil Stevie the Boot-Licker" does or says anymore?

"Lil Stevie" is nothing more than a bought-and-paid-for lap dummy of the D.C. Uniparty who pull his strings to make his mouth move and spew lies, innuendos and lunacy.

In case anyone missed it, over the past several years "Lil Stevie" and his party have become irrelevant and powerless in D.C. In fact, I'd add laughable, too.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

You're right AP. It's no different than how the conservative media handled Whitewater, Benghazi, the Clinton emails, you name it.

Sometimes the politically slanted press will end up right about scandals. Sometimes the evidence won't be there, but hey, it provides the media some good fodder for a while either way.

I still make sure to read equal doses of Fox and CNN though, because I want to make sure I try to get both directions of the spin cycle, so that I end up somewhere back near the middle, and hopefully somewhere closer to the truth in the end.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Well, Pop, you can sit back and wait for it to unfold. But I'm thankful for the media right now. I would prefer we didn't have to hear about chump's shenanigans all day, every day. But as long as we have an idiot in the White House, I'm going to be paying very close attention to the speculation.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

APop,
I thought you were referring to the op-ed pieces concerning Nixon.
Oh yeah, the Clintons were guilty, fat lot of good it did us.
As for selective memory, I have no control over my memory as I recall.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@CL

I was taking about persuasive power.

But you have a selective memory, my dear sir.

Go back to the Whitewater investigation and read some of the op-eds published by the conservative press. That investigation took years over schedule and was expanded into areas far removed from the original purpose. Led by the redoubtable Ken Starr, what started off as an investigation into real estate dealings morphed into an investigation into Bill Clinton's affair with Ms Lewinsky, and even into the death of a White House aide. The conservative press ate it up. I can remember reading, in an editorial, that the crooked real estate dealings were small potatoes; The Clinton's were actually guilty of Murder! Murder no less. Allegations made with no proof at all. In fact, the Clintons were never prosecuted because of that lack of proof. Yet, reputations were tarnished, rights were trampled in the process.

Like I said, I have seen all this before. Extremely sad the Press, who could act as the grownups in the room since Congress will not, just urge it on instead of restoring reason.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

APop,
And yet all the bullshit op-eds, were right.
And since the spineless bastards in Congress will to only react to being given money or to the loss of votes, an outraged, if not totally t-crossed and i-dotted public, will push the investigation.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@Nobody

Right now, it is pure speculation that anybody has done anything illegal or immoral. Much less possibly have committed treason, or that (per Mr. Cohen) our democracy is in danger, or that (per many Democrats) this is Watergate all over again, and much other loose talk beside that.

Investigations lead to the truth. The investigations are not complete and we don't know the truth yet, so it is pure speculation at this point. The existence of an investigation does not prove anything one way or the other. It is all political theater at this point. But stand by, it may turn into something else if evidence of wrong-doing is found.

The press, either side, is not about to take my advice on anything. What I would say is that it might be best to realize your role is to protect our freedom. not degrade our rights or cheapen the political discourse. That all persons are innocent until proven guilty, and please take the majority of those talking heads off the air. I am not sure who two-thirds of them are anyway or why in hell I should pay attention to what they say. Cover public hearings from end to end and please spare us your biased analysis afterwards. Remember what got Nixon tossed. It was when TV covered the public hearings. For me, it was hearing sworn testimony from Nixon associates that persuaded me he was guilty as hell. All the bullshit op-eds in the world were not as persuasive as that was.

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

Well, it's more than just pure speculation because there is an FBI investigation and a congressional hearing. It's not like it's just a bunch people making things up. It's based on what's happening right now. And the news is reporting it because most people in the US and many in the rest of the world want to know what's happening. It makes me pretty anxious to be in the dark about the President.
Should the media just sit back and say nothing until there's a conviction based on hard evidence?

Re: “Cohen Reacts to Comey Firing

@CL

I don't know about that one, CL.

I think that might be best reserved for actions that led to an arrest or indictment.

But here are some more I found in the Flyer just today:

"quite possible"
"appeared"
"committed possible treason"
"should be terrified"

Read it yourself. See any solid indication any of that is beyond pure speculation? Of course it is the writers's perfect right to speculate as much as he wants. Further, The Flyer is an alternate newspaper and no one holds The Flyer to the same standards as a mainstream media outlet. Even further, Bruce has a commitment to free speech that sets an example to others. He walks that walk.

Still, does that stuff really advance the cause of justice, get us closer to the truth, or raise the level of political discourse?
