Pencil necked friends? You come off as very angry.


Brennan getting his clearance pulled was the final straw. There is no way Trump would do that to one of 'the boys' while knowing there's something out there Mueller might find. No way.

Weinstein might have put both fists through a wall when he heard the news. That guy has got to be on nervous breakdown number 4 by now.

I'm 99% certain this is not going to end well for Trump haters. Mueller will pen up some 160 page salad that he dramatically presents as damaging to Trump, but with no charges. Manafort, Cohen and 27(?) Russians, who will never step foot on our soil, are going to have to do. Just my opinion.

Favor and our bet
If this goes, as I suspect it will, I am asking for you to take my winnings and donate them to a No Kill animal shelter. I hope that you will do this for me.

Not angry at all-you were the only one of the three that took the bet so you have my respect. Also, as the owner of 2 dogs and two cats, I'd be pleased to honor your request having rescued the cats from kill shelters. They are awful places.
Thanks

Loons are so unhinged, now threatening a Federal Judge and the jurors.

Did I miss the part in the article where they identified the people making threats as being on the Left? Apologies if I misinterpreted your statement, but seeing as you commonly refer to us on the Left as "loons", "loony", and "unhinged" I can only assume you mean to infer that someone on the Left is harassing the judge and jurors.

The left doesn't have a monopoly on loons, whoever threatens a Federal judge of all people is beyond loony toons.

Why would CNN want the court to release the jurors names and adresses before the trial is over?? The judge denied it fortunately, but it sounds absolutely mental to request that in such a high profile case.

The jury went back to the judge for clarification on 'reasonable doubt', then Mueller announced they have 3X the evidence for round two.

Hmm.

They want to interview the jurors obviously. Standard operating procedure. Happens all the time in high profile cases.

When haven't they been? The Clinton News Network is a joke.

They have a first Amendment right to ask for the names of the jurors, but over the course of the past 30-40 years it seems judges have been more apt to keep the identities of jurors secret in high profile cases. So while CNN has the right to ask for their identities, going by their hatred of this President and anything surrounding him, you have to view their request with quite a bit of pessimism. Knowing what I know about CNN I'd say their request, while valid, reeks of jury intimidation.

If I was on that jury, there's no way in hell I'd want my identity known. The judge himself is getting death threats, if the loons are threatening a Federal judge the jurors themselves certainly won't be immune. Many folks who believe in the fairy tale of Russian/Trump collusion are completely unhinged, I'd be concerned for the safety of all the jurors and I'd support the decision of the Judge to keep their identities secret.

Likewise, if I was wingnut and wound up being on a jury that convicted Manafort, I wouldn't want my name known to the other wingnuts either. I'd be concerned about my job etc. if the boss leaned right. Everything is political now, you can't even judge a man fairly on the evidence now without being accused of political leanings. I don't know which way this trial is going to go, but I promise you if he's acquitted the loons will go nuts, and if he's found guilty the wingnuts will rage. Those jurors are in a no win situation, and I'd keep their identities secret. The situation in this country now is too polarized.

What annoys me are the wingnuts talking about the trial is a sham etc. because Mueller is just going after Trump, trying to flip Manafort. That is no doubt true since nothing in this trial has to do with Russian/Trump collusion, but give me a break. If these charges are true I don't care about the motive of the trial. If he's found guilty, he needs to serve the time for these serious charges. I just wish everybody would allow the justice system to work here.

I'd say a year ago, they were just left of center, according to that rating site.
When they started going completely bonkers they had to get pushed out near the nutters sites and downgraded to Mixed factually.

They don't care. Committed to crap journalism and the people that eat it up.


I don't care if it was Soros, antifa or Trump Jr...you threaten a federal judge and the hounds are coming for you and hopefully, bite their faces off.

If you threaten a Federal judge, someone or something has so whipped you into a frenzy that you're not thinking clearly nor rationally. So yes, mind controlled.

Since we don't have an outcome, question is, is who is the someone, what is the something and who is the mind controller.
