Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, September 21, 2019

The greatest threat to our democracy today is a Republican Party that plays dirty to win. The party's abandonment of fair play was showcased spectacularly in 2016, when the United States Senate refused to allow President Barack Obama to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Antonin Scalia's death in February.

Why Republicans Play Dirty

Because the Democratic Party is weak, ineffective, and doesn't stand for much of anything.

Because the Democratic Party is weak, ineffective, and doesn't stand for much of anything.

Right now the Democrats in Congress are the only thing between Trump and Trump gaining what amounts to full authoritarian, dictatorial power without any restraint whatsoever.

The Democrats are constrained by the fact of the laws and rules enshrined in the Constitution that dictates the proper stewardship of government, along with belief in the spirit of comity that transcends politics.

The Republicans no longer acknowledge any restraints whatsoever when in pursuit of their political and policy goals. The ends justify the means and when you can't win fairly, just win however you can.

Therein lies the difference.

Democrats can't get Trump's tax returns?

It's clear too me Democrats aren't interested in doing so, despite whatever they say publicly.

That issue is in the courts right now because Mnuchin blatantly violated the law that compels him to turn them over. The law isn't ambiguous at all, but whatever, here we are in stasis, and those unfamiliar with why blame the ones following the rules.

You're making my case. The Dems are indeed following the rules and procedures in what they're doing trying to pin Trump down. And the Trumpers don't care and feel emboldened by the scores of appellate judges Trump's appointed, who they feel will rule in their favor. Or they bog down the process by forwarding nonsensical arguments in the courts, thereby making sure any final adjudication won't come until after the 2020 election, if ever, after all the appeals should they lose.

While that may be true, there should be no delay in deciding whether or not to escalate an issue to the courts. Dems know enough by now and have known for months, how Trump and his henchmen behave. Subpoenas should be prepared in advance of every interaction with Trump henchmen so that when that interaction goes as planned, the subpoena can be issued IMMEDIATELY: no 3 month delay, or 1 week delay; not even 1 day. The subpoena should be issued IMMEDIATELY.

The sense of urgency associated with an immediate issuance will send a signal to the judiciary that time is of the essence.

I disagree with the premise of the opinion piece. Claiming your opponent is playing dirty is just another tool of the loser of the contest to try to gain the upper hand or make excuses for a loss. The player doesn't get to make that call, it's the umpire, the ref, or the voter.

This all depends on how you define dirty. I think accusing a man of serial rape like they did with Kavanaugh is extremely dirty. I think pandering to illegals to create a crisis and then whining about the crisis is extremely dirty. I think making 100% false statements about Trump and hooker tapes is extremely dirty. I think utilizing a lying media to create 93% negative stories and repeatedly call the president a traitor, a rapist and a racist is extremely dirty. The Dems own that.

1) accusing someone of rape is not dirty. Preventing a real investigation is dirty
2) Nobody is pandering to illegals. None of the people being detained have been accused of a crime. They are awaiting the hearing they are entitled to as part of the LEGAL process of applying for asylum.
3) Trump created the crisis by detaining everyone. He can end the crisis with a pen. He owns it.
4) Nobody has made any 100% false statements about Trump and hooker tapes. Not one word of the Steele Dossier has been proven false
5) The reason there are 93% negative stories about Trump is that 93% of the things he does are negative.
6) The media is not anti Trump they are just reporting what he did. That is their job.
7) Repeatedly calling a racist rapist traitor a racist rapist traitor is not dirty. Being a racist rapist traitor is.

You can't defend him by attacking the side that has all the facts in their favor. Trumpist alternative facts are not facts they are lies

1) accusing someone of rape is not dirty. Preventing a real investigation is dirty - a majority of the accusers have already admitted they lied. Ford also clearly lied. They lied to undermine our democracy/

2) Nobody is pandering to illegals. - sanctuary cities, free healthcare, and no internal enforcement is pandering - that is the Dem platform from every presidential candidate.

3) Trump created the crisis by detaining everyone - the crisis is PEOPLE SWARMING THE BORDER, not kids in cages. All your plan does is increase the amount of people swarming the border.

4) Not one word of the Steele Dossier has been proven false - what about the Cohen Prague meeting? 100% false. Nothing in the Steele Dossier has been proven to be true and to still stand behind it at this point is proving you are a shill.

5) The reason there are 93% negative - is because the media is biased. Record economy, stopping wars, criminal justice reform, fixing the Surpeme Court - all great accomplishments.

6) The media is not anti Trump they are just reporting what he did - if you believe this, you are braindead.

7) Repeatedly calling a racist rapist traitor a racist rapist traitor is not dirty - not worth responding to this one. Rational thought is beyond your capabilities.

What on earth are you talking about?

Obama's own former CBP head said that they system is being overwhelmed. We are up almost 50% over 2018 and we are only in September. 1999 is irrelevant as that was pre-Bush economic collapse and Obama crap growth. The numbers from 2017, 2018, 2019 are EXPLODING. Facilities are overwhelmed and Dems are voting not to increase bed capacity at detention facilities. They go on national TV and say that ICE is evil. The set up sanctuary cities and don't even want to deport rapists, drug dealers, or other violent felons.

Further WE HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARE CROSSING. We only know the number that are CAUGHT. Same goes with drug smugglers. The Democrats are fighting the government's ability to even ascertain that number - why do you think that is? It is because they are the ones causing the humanitarian crisis.

LOL, the little racist Libs run crying and I have a problem? As to Ukraine, asking Ukraine to restart an investigation into corruption by a US citizen that was improperly obstructed by the Vice President using US taxpayer dollars in a quid pro quo arrangement is probably one of the most legally correct things Trump has ever done. Given Biden has admitted his role in obstructing justice, this is a no brainer to restart. After that, they can see why the Chinese gave Biden's cokehead kid $1.5B.

Zero fear in this. As a matter of fact Biden should be charged under the FCPA - if he was a private citizen, he would be in jail already for bribing a government official. Just because he is in government should not give him a get out of jail free card for bribery that has ZERO to do with US interests and EVERYTHING to do with his personal financial well being.

I'm traveling at the moment, so it has taken me a while to get back to your eloquent prose.

"What is racist" you ask and I answer your words "You crowned that half-black loser...".

America crowned ( to use your term ) an American citizen as President and all you can see is someone who is "half-black". Just curious, but why not half-white? Less racist that way?

As for you being objective, that is an opinion we do not share. I have trouble accepting that someone does not demonize based " on race" when they feel it necessary to inject race in to every description of someone with whom they disagree. Don't believe me? Read your own comments again.

I was responding to someone calling Trump Orange. No one uses the term 'half-white' so that was out of the question.

"As for you being objective, that is an opinion we do not share."

So, Obama is not half-black? That is an objective fact, unless you have your own birther conspiracy.

"I have trouble accepting that someone does not demonize based " on race""

Again, he is not a loser because he is half-black, he is a loser based on his policies.

Why does it matter to you what color Obama is? If you feel he is a loser based on policies with which you disagree, why do you need to bring his color into it? Obama may not be a loser because he is " half-black", but you are certainly racist for your focus on it.

It does not work as a literary device if I didn't following the same construction as the original author. You are welcome for your free language lesson.

"If you feel he is a loser based on policies with which you disagree, why do you need to bring his color into it?"

So your decision is to double down on the statement being purely factual and not derogatory and racist. Sorry, within the contexts that you have used it I do not believe you.

As for whether Obama is half-back, an "objective fact" as far as you are concerned, you may like to know that his mother's ancestry can be traced back to include some of the earliest African slaves in the US. It is unlikely then that she is able to pass on 100% "white" genes to her son and therefore equally unlikely that Obama is "half" anything.

I get that English is not your native language. Here in the US, half-black is a perfectly acceptable term. I would tell Obama he is half-black to his face, it is not offensive.

In February 2016, the site appended lengthy corrections to five stories by reporter Juan M. Thompson and retracted a sixth, about Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof, written over the previous year, focused on the African-American community. Shortly afterward, a note from editor Betsy Reed indicated that Thompson had been fired recently after his editors discovered "a pattern of deception" in his reporting. According to Reed, he had "fabricated several quotes in his stories and created fake email accounts that he used to impersonate people, one of which was a Gmail account in my name".

Oh but he's suppressing the spread of Islam. Oh wait that's model economy and socialist example of doing things right (and Trump victim) China.

detainees at the border did not come through valid ports of entry. And yeah the pics of kids in cages were from the Obama years. But who cares? Pin it on Trumo.

And there is tape of Biden bragging that he had a Ukraine prosecutor fired in exchange for releasing aid. To aid his son who then got off free for --- he was pulling in Ukraine and then he got billions for his investment management fund from foreign sources.

From the article. Dems take heed and lose the 2016 election gracefully:

"Democracy requires that parties know how to lose. Politicians who fail to win elections must be willing to accept defeat, go home, and get ready to play again the next day. This norm of gracious losing is essential to a healthy democracy.

But for parties to accept losing, two conditions must hold. First, they must feel secure that losing today will not bring ruinous consequences; and second, they must believe they have a reasonable chance of winning again in the future. When party leaders fear that they cannot win future elections, or that defeat poses an existential threat to themselves or their constituents, the stakes rise. Their time horizons shorten. They throw tomorrow to the wind and seek to win at any cost today. In short, desperation leads politicians to play dirty."

Describes the last three years of Dems pretty well. Or are they just desperate?

The real reason is that the GOP voters understand that the Dems WILL PLAY DIRTY TOO coupled with PLAYING DIRTY WORKS. Thus, you can be full of virtue and steamrolled in elections such that none of your policies are enacted, or, you can adopt the same strategy as your opponents and just implemented them better.

I think you will see this come back in spades from the Kavanaugh fake sex assault claims. The GOP can select anyone that they feel is too powerful on the Dem side and then smear with sex assault allegations (true or false) and put the Dems in an untenable position. Either they believe the victim ALWAYS, or they are hypocritical liars - either way, the GOP will win the argument. We see this with up and down votes in the Senate and if the Dems remove the filibuster, you will see that haunt them as well. Dems can never look more than a year or 2 into the future.

Unfortunately, I think the biggest destruction will come from the Dems destroying the FBI, the prestige of the position of the president, and the legitimacy of the Supreme Court (lower court legitimacy already was destroyed by the 9th Circuit). I don't see how the country will ever turn back the clock on these. With the unprecedented attacks on the president - openly calling him a liar, a racist, a rapist, a traitor, etc - the GOP will take that same attack and amp it up to 11.

Then perhaps a rebuttal instead of a personal attack is in order, Yav. You bitch about posts that you think aren't good or add to the discussion. Yet you have no problem with name calling and denigration in lieu of thought out and reasoned rebuttal..

Do as you say, not as you do, right?

Goatman,Yav has no choice. He cannot refute what posted so he bangs the table like a child having a tantrum. That is what Trump has reduced the liberals to at this point. They have only themslves to blame.

#166 you deny Trump is a liar.

You probably also deny he's committed sexual assault.

You are in fact an idiot. That is an undeniable fact.

More quality posting from the person who demands it from others and denigrates others to prop up his emotional weaknesses and lack of self esteem.

Is Projection the Most Powerful Defense Mechanism?
Projection is a form of distortion in which information that is actually about oneself is incorrectly attributed to another person.

When we project, we "put" part of ourselves onto other people, usually to "get rid of" something objectionable. It is as if we are throwing a part of ourselves outward and casting it, like the image from a movie projector, onto (really, into) the other person.

We treat the other person consistently with how we feel about that quality in ourselves. We are unaware of and/or avoiding something true about ourselves.

I see you are taking my earlier suggestions that you engage in more introspection to heart.

Good on you, Joe.
