So Nunes just nuked everyone who had any involvement in the illegal conspiracy to accept hacked emails from the Russians which means Trump, Trump Jr., Roger Stone, Julian Assange and probably many more to come. Some have already copped a plea deal like Gates who was present for the proceedings and soon Michael Cohen, who was also there, should have his deal in place.

I'd say this is a whopper, but we all know there are going to dozens more tapes and testimonies like this spilling out now.

The dam is officially open

That's why Trump threads are relevant right now but Hillary ones are usually just petty, whiny men bitching about a woman that deserve to be locked.


Nope.
Trump tweets out dumb **** that doesn’t have **** to do with his job all of the time and you still see people to take that opportunity to stand on some soap box that morphs into general Trump hate that been hashed out over and over again.

The LeBron James tweet is a perfect example. Him saying whatever he said about LeBron doesn’t doesn’t effect this country at all.

It’s cool and all to bash Trump(I really don’t give a damn about what’s said here about him since I believe most of it) but there is another side to this fuqed up coin we call American politics and it’s the red side. That side seems to always be snuffed out and muted. I’m not even talking about Bill right now. Some poster was cussed out for stating an opinion in one of these Trump threads.

Trump winning should have been a wake up call to all waving that blue flag. Maybe it’s time to start listening to all sides before we end up with Trump being re-elected.

A lot of mofo’s stayed real quiet and hid their thoughts and feelings during the election due to the potential of being bashed to bits. Those same people voted for Trump. I think we’re going to see the same mess play out if we don’t start to see AT LEAST two-way CIVIL conversing.


This is coming from a registered INDEPENDENT


Yup, it's exactly as I said, Trump is the President and Clinton is not. This doesn't mean every little tweet he makes needs to be a thread but threads on his significant happenings have relevance. While whining about something that is mostly fiction from the dark crevices of hateful minds isn't very relevant.

So civil conversing about relevant substantiated topics is something we can intellectually entertain. Arguing for pages and threads on end about conspiracy theories conjured up by anonymous malingerers has been deemed by the mods as useless to the forum. Freedom of speech isn't freedom from consequences.
Ugly win > Pretty loss
Those who'd rather see their team fail so they can be right are fans of their opinion not the team.

Maddow obtained tape recordings of Devin Nunes. This is ugly. He was already prison-bound, but this secures his place in a jail cell for committing obstruction of justice.

MSNBC site will play the whole video segment here. First Nunes audio clip at 5:15 point:

https://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/nunes-on-secret-tape-kavanaugh-vote-then-rosenstein-impeachment-1295170115625


To me this comes off as fear mongering the rich for more donations .

in a world where elections are easily hacked how does it all end unless they let it?

How many Trump threads does there really need to be? We get it. He’s an ass. But then I see every Hillary thread get locked.

Like I said before, echo chamber. That’s doing nothing but starting nasty fights. I don’t post too much in these threads because the same **** is said over and over by the same people but this is getting ridiculous.

Trump has at least 2 years left in the Whitehouse. Is this really going to continue on like this as long as he’s President? That’s disheartening if so.


you've made your point. many times. in various threads. continuing to do so is a trend of derailing. just ignore the threads then, please.

threads are getting locked because of what goes on in them. if we do better they can be just fine.

You know why?

Because I feel like the mods aren’t addressing it as it keeps happening.

Why not speak up? Am I just supposed to shut up about it? I’ve been respectful in stating my opinion on this matter as has many others as well and yet it’s always met with dismissive responses from other posters and ignored by mods.

If we’re ignoring threads why wasn’t Bill’s threads ignored? Them **** were locked. As they should have been, but these threads live on.

his thread was locked because it was about a 3-year-old article with no intention than to macro derail.

you got something current you want to contribute from your voice? go for it.

if your voice is that there should be less voices, that's not how this is going to play.

you can speak up all you want. but don't derail what you don't like. that's really the only ask in this case.

Not necessarily what I’m trying to say. Everyone is singing the same tune. Can’t have that and expect a realistic view of the political landscape. That’s how we ended up with a walking cheeto as POTUS.

Balance is needed. Trumps ass needs to be talked about ALONG with other politicians.

Hillary is very relevant. Why? There are grumblings her dusty ass will run in 2020. So all of that old **** will pop right back up.

IMO [don't want to speak for all mods and admins] it would be perfectly fine to introduce something like this as a topic of discussion in a timely fashion.

one year or one month later and solely as a counter to something else new wouldn't be good. but say, if it were 8/31/17 today and you posted that hillary piece for discussion... okay.

or... if it were relevant to an existing discussion and you wanted to reference something relevant you had to say using it... okay. i don't see what would be the problem with that.

FYI, we're still working some of this stuff out. The timing (3 years later, lol) wasn't ideal but I personally wouldn't have locked the 2nd thread (the sourced article) if it weren't

A) Obviously Pidto who we had just banned - they are not allowed to post anything anywhere on these boards let alone start threads
B) Somebody clearly taking out their axe to grind with the mod team

This person was looking to start a fight with the mod team and derail the board. They can take a hike.



Hillary might run again? What a great idea. Turned out so well the first time :roll:
