Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, November 23, 2019

After Taylor hearing: "Sondland lied under oath to Congress," said Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego. "He clearly lied to the committee," one anonymous Democratic representative told the Hill. "They should pursue charges against him." .... The Gambit: "Was there a quid pro quo?" he asked. "Yes." There was more. "Everyone was in the loop," Sondland said. "It was no secret." Vice President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, chief of staff Mick Mulvaney, they were all involved. It was great stuff. A bombshell! In an instant, the talk about Sondland lying to Congress vanished. Democrats were absolutely delighted that Sondland, once thought to be a witness friendly to the president, had given them so much good material. The media coverage went along. Sondland's testimony was damning, it was devastating, and, of course, it was a "turning point" in the impeachment proceedings. Except it wasn't.

Interesting ... Sondland throws out a face saving "accusation", the media and lefties run with it .... then an hour later it all come crumbling down; which of course isn't reported.

Is this the thread where righties pretend Sondland, Guilliani, Perry, Pence, and Mulvaney were all going rogue behind Trump's back?

Excuse # 23.

The hottest places in Hell are reserved for those who in a period of moral crisis maintain their neutrality.

There's a huge spectrum in between being neutral and being a total partisan hack.

Your mastery of Bumper Sticker Philosophy is unparalleled...

There is a section in Inferno that describs the fate of individuals who were neutral between good and evil. Their experiences were gruesome, but they were not placed in a location that was scorching hot. That phrase never appears in any translation of Dante's inferno.

"The origins of this "quote" evolved in a multistep process from a changing and imperfect interpretation of Dante's work. In 1915 Theodore Roosevelt accurately wrote that Dante had "reserved a special place of infamy" for neutral angels. In 1917 a religious orator named W. M. Vines incorrectly stated that Dante had placed neutral individuals "in the lowest place in hell".

In 1944 the spiritual writer Henry Powell Spring penned a book of aphorisms that included a statement ascribed to Dante that closely matched the modern quotation. John F. Kennedy used the saying several times in speeches in the 1950s and later. Kennedy also attributed the remark to Dante.evolved in a multistep process from a changing and imperfect interpretation of Dante's work.

Yeah that vacuum really holds your head up your ass quite tightly, doesn't it?

At least you're trying to extract it.

I don't know how anybody can be so sure. Nobody has ever come back to file a report.

BTW, is the Devil that little guy with horns and a forked tail that runs around in red leotards carrying a pitchfork?

That's what they told me in bible school.

Ah the old drunk well.

You guys have run that so dry it's basically turned into a version of crying uncle when you have nothing to say.

#18, as if you have anything to say in this thread? It seems you missed that my comment was directed primarily at the OP. Not surprising that those who have something in common with him tripped over themselves to attack me for it.

Keep posing as an enlightened centrist, Swastika Rehabilitator.
