Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, October 11, 2019

CNN has reported, and ABC News has now confirmed, that Rudy Giuliani is a subject in the criminal investigation that has already landed two of his "associates" in jail. The investigation into Giuliani's business relationship with Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman is part of an ongoing investigation by the FBI's New York field office and prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.

I don't often give the funny flag because it is oft misused.

But #3 made me laugh when I read it.

Must be handy to just scream DEEP STATE whenever your cult leaders' crimes are exposed. That way they're never guilty of anything.

Anyime you hear of any wrongdoing it's FAKE NEWS! and anytime law enforcement prosecutes the crime its DEEP STATE!

What a pile of gullible chumps you are.

AU a compliment from you is appreciated. I would rate you as one of the most knowledgeable and intelligent people her. Because you are.

And Lamp, I am corrected by you quite often but I do respect your knowledge.
We deal with such complicated issues, sure we have morons posting among us, but we are also lucky to have some brilliant minds posting here and I do not include myself in that group but I do think I am intelligent enough to recognize who they are.

AU is definitely one of them.

Thank you, DANNI. I feel the same way about you. :)

An uninformed citizenry is an antithetical to democracy. There are some on DR who educate themselves with facts and others who troll and mock. The former are why I come here, the latter are why I'm glad there is a way to avoid wasting time scrolling through their nonsense.

We all have opinions. I, like you and some other here, try to educate myself to form my own informed opinions. The rabble on DR are merely parrots who trot out the nonsensical, biased opinions of others.

Right is right and wrong is wrong. Political persuasion shouldn't enter into that equation. But, sadly, too many on the right here are willing to either cheer or look the other way at wrongdoing that's clearly evident to anyone who actually cares about an honest, fair, democratic system of government.

My dad, a Republican, taught me to always do my best to do the right thing, and to expect that of others. When he understood the extent of Richard Nixon's wrongdoing, my dad abandoned him and any Republican who didn't stand on the right side of ethics by continuing to support him. If only those on the far right had the same code of ethics. We all benefit from honest government.

"An uninformed citizenry is an antithetical to democracy."

There's a Ben Franklin quote to that effect.

But what would the guy who invented public libraries know about an informed citizenry? :P

POSTED BY AMERICANUNITY "

An informed citizenry who nonetheless takes one side even if they are wrong and refuses to acknowledge the good and right of the other side is far more insidious and dangerous. You have been shown to be wrong many times (regardless of how lovey dovey Danni is towards you) yet you refuse to admit when you are wrong. Guess what? Trump does the same as you. I'm surprised that you don't love him for that.

Welcome to Americanunity's, Danni's, Speaksoftly's et alia world.

Even the dissenting judge's opinion (she's a Trump appointee) on today's ruling - that Trump's taxes must be released from his accounting firm - stated that a president is not above the law and must adhere to the laws of the land and the checks and balances that make our democracy work.

Right is right, wrong is wrong. If a Democrat was doing the things Trump & Co are, I'd be equally as generous with my condemnation of them.

I grew up when we had drills to prepare in the event the Soviet Union attack us with nuclear weapons. Everyone in America was united in their condemnation of their government as our chief adversary. Putin, former head of the KGB for the Soviet Union, is every bit an equal adversary, seeking to destroy ours and other democracies around the world.

That a president of the United States treats him as a 'friend' and does his bidding (as he just did with Syria), and participates in underhanded schemes to undermine the credibility of elections within the U.S., and undermines America's reputation as a country who stands up for democratic principles, adds up to a person who's a dire threat to our democracy and standing in the world.

That's why I oppose Trump so vociferously. He isn't a Republican, he's an opportunistic narcissist without a political core. He is a despicable man, not an American patriot acting in America's best interests.

I didn't post here for 2 years after his election. The reason why is that I didn't respect him as a person, but like all other freely elected presidents, I wanted him to do well. So, I stood back to see what he'd do in the office. Only after he exposed himself to be a narcissistic self-seeker who did not stand up for America, and how he undermined all that I believed America is supposed to be and stand for, did I rejoin the conversation. Now, I speak my mind, based on the facts as they've been revealed.

No doubt GOATMAN or some other right winger who don't seem to care about what Trump is doing to this country will also flag this as 'Funny.' Help yourself. That's all Trump is doing in office. Helping himself.

Look, you sound like you've been wildly successful (taking your statements at face value) and to that I say good for you. Seriously.

But the stuff you say here is so far beyond rational I have trouble believing you're serious.

But it's not funny either nor are the topics, particularly of late, good places for humor.
