Yes, which is why the anti-Trump stories totaling about 98% of all coverage is appalling.

The sad thing is that Douchefroth actuality believes that...this, despite the fact that the economy is so good that his --------- operator job at the Flying J upped his pay to $2.00/load.

No surprise Ira proffers himself as the expert on the going rate at the local bathroom stall.

Rumor is he's running for Senator from Idaho next year.

Hey Rube, remember when you were taking a home run trot saying 4% growth was the new normal?

Remember when myself and others said you were full of Trump? We said 4% was a blip, and growth would be back to normal soon.

Looks like you were wrong, again, and we were right...again. And the massive growth promised to make the tax cuts cost "only" $2.3 Trillion was a lie you fell for.

No - because I never said that. You have a link? I did say that Obama's 2% is the new normal is moronic, but that is not what you are claiming now. Maybe you suffer from IDS along with TDS.

US News media is shielded from some subjects by an iron dome.

While it's true that many of us on this Uzbekestani political-thumb-wrestling forum might not always agree with one another, I think we can all come together and agree on the fact that Jeffrey Epstein didn't kill himself, and that the so-called mainstream media is due for some serious interrogation.

Malarkey. You were full if yourself, and the 4% growth blip. Proof Trump's stewardship was working. I wasn't the only one disagreeing.

Now you look like the guy smugly trotting around first, before he discovers the catcher is holding strike three.

I agree w/ Epstein - and I will go one step further - that the person that killed him/had him killed will NEVER be brought to justice.

I was there. You touted 4% as the new normal, and took a victory lap, licking Trump's taint the entire time.

But here we are back at 2% growth...and all it took us to get here was another trillion dollars in borrowing. Thanks, Trump.

Again, link. Should not be hard. I don't have a huge posting history. Ask Creep HANDS to help you.

We are at 2% while the Eurozone is already in recession, Canada is growing at 1.5%, and Japan is 0.8%. So yeah - we are doing something right. I don't think the tax cuts helped much - never agreed with cutting personal rates but the corporate rate cut was needed and the Fed being the most aggressive bank in the developed world certainly held us back. Eurozone is at negative growth and negative interest rates - so they got nothing left in the tanks. I think the reason why our economy continues its strong growth in the face of the headwinds is the trade policies. Why do you think we are so vastly outperforming Europe, Japan, and Canada?

Daphne Caruana Galizia didn't kill herself either.
That story is also essentially untouched.

Killing journalists works. Just ask Putin.

She died in a carbomb attack -------. No one is claiming that she was 'Arkansided' so this is apples and oranges.

Seen any investigations into who killed her?

Like I said, apples and oranges. If you want an apples to apples for your poor comparison it would be 2Pac. If you want a true comparison to Epstein it would be Vince Foster.

I know, right? Things would be so much better if only the government got any say in what news you were exposed to.

If you are making a claim about my words, link or shut up. If you are asking for a link with supporting details for your argument, that is a different story.

What massive international conspiracy did Tupac uncover, and pay for with his life?

If not for The Miami Herald, in particular Julie Brown, using old fashion investigative reporting, we would still think Epstein was a "billionaire genius". He was neither.

The media didn't fail here, the justice system failed. Most egregiously the Federal Prosecutor in Florida, but the LA Sheriffs dept, Santa Fe Sheriff, Palm Beach PD, Columbus OH Sheriff, and the New York DA all had shots at Epstein and 'missed'. At any point after 2005 he could have been locked up for any number of violations of his parole, he never attended the mandated therapy, never gave notice of travel, never met the 90 day check-ins, nothing. And remember he pled guilty to a crime that doesn't exist. One cannot solicit prostitution from a minor, that's called "child sex trafficking", not solicitation.
Epstein lived as if he knew he was untouchable by the law because he was.

I think this goes far beyond rich white guy syndrome. My guess is that he was an asset of a covert organization, probably Mossad, possibly the Brits, and it connects all the way back to Robert Maxwell who we know was a Mossad agent and who was found dead after 'falling' from his 100 million dollar yacht in calm seas. Maxwell's daughter was Epstein's one time girl friend and life long fixer, she hasn't been seen in months.
