The greatest trick the deep state ever pulled was convincing the world it didn't exist.

AWKWARD! Watch Sean Hannity Keep Getting Corrected By Shep Smith In New Supercut

At least Hannity admits he's not a news reporter, but is a commentator. Smith claims to be a news reporter and not a commentator, but his so called newscasts are filled with obvious digs, foul facial expressions, bursts of righteous ignitation, etc.against Trump. Yeah, some unbiased newsman. :roll:

The issue is that trump and friends are now making major misrepresentations, if not outright lies, on a daily basis. This is not a matter of differing opinions or viewpoints any longer. The only question is if trump actually believes what he is saying, or merely whipping up the base of simple thinkers for support and/or distraction.

I find it humorous that you state that liberals require that all MUST agree.... yet judging from this thread it is something you and your friends require as well since when someone disagrees, you do your utmost to shout them down and make personal attacks rather than accept a "difference of opinion". Maybe your a liberal too?

Not shouting anyone down. Just pointing out that Hannity makes no bones about being a commentator and not a reporter. Smith on the other hand claims to be a reporter, but he shows his bias by constant negative Trump comments, angry or disusted facial expressions, etc. during his news program. These are the undeniable facts I pointed out. Tell me where I shouted anyone down, or personally attacked you.

I am amazed at the mental gymnastics required to believe that a deep state exists with no proof, and at the same time call the russia probe a hoax even though Mueller's team has charged four Americans once affiliated with Trump's campaign or administration, 13 Russian nationals, 12 Russian intelligence officers, three Russian companies, and two other people sine May 2017. Russia interfered in the 2016 election and continues to be an ongoing problem in the midterms according to all of trump's people... except for trump himself of course.

Constant negative trump comments... that must be when someone points out that trump is making things up again without proof? Maybe if trump didn't lie every day he wouldn't be on the receiving end of such "negative" comments on a daily basis. Let's face it, trump lies daily about things both insignificant and important. Yet if one points it out they must be liberals.... not just someone unwilling to buy yet another conspiracy theory with a straight face.

You didn't answer my questions, and I'll add, show me where I called you a liberal. My comment about liberals was a general one and represents my opinion. So you think if Trump quit lying as you say, no one on the liberal side would be calling him a racist, traitor, homophobe, anti woman, and overall digusting human being? Sure, it's a well known fact that politicians never lie about anything of course, so im sure that would be the case.

When one conservative yelled, "you lie" to Obama, he was crucified by the left and the media. Now it's perfectly ok to call Trump a liar by the left, and they are cheered on by the media. When Bush relied on U.S. and worldwide intelligence prior to the Iraq invasion, supported by the left, and was shown to be wrong, he too was crucified by he left and they were cheered on by the media. But if Trump dares to question U.S. intelligence, he is crucified by the left and by the media.

If you truly believe that the bias is unreal, then tell me why not a single television media source, except Fox news, and ABC (24 seconds), covered the arrival ceremony in Hawaii, where the Vice President spoke, of the remains of (hopefully) 55 MIA from the Korean War were returned. What a dishonor to our military and those families. I believe it wasn't covered because it was brokered by Trump, and there is no way they'd give him credit for anything.

The WaPo Trump "lie" blog collection is full of things like this. Maybe I'll find the time to "debunk" (ridicule) them one by one, but probably not. If you know what a non sequitur is, pass go and collect $200.

Is WaPo saying crime rates are up in Mexico because more Mexicans are returning to Mexico? :lol:

Yes, there should be an error tone that automatically sounds whenever anyone uses a non sequitur, or "spin". So many politicians do this to respond to tough questions.

Bbhack, I'm aware of Trump's tweet as shown but have not seen that WaPo Fact Checker response to it - where did you find it?

Here's another one.

The Politico piece, written before Trump won the nomination, does not prove or make clear that he sought the Koch's endorsement. Wanting to purchase analytics and wanting to speak at an event does not make the case. Once again, the liar (or fake news provider) is the opposite party.

More on QAnon from NYT.

They are dangerous conspiracy therorists who are on line as opposed to Antifa who is on the street physically beating up actual people.

These QAnon think that the deep state and things like pedophilia actually exist and they support Trump and show up at rallies and have signs. They are people the public needs to fear.
http://thehill.com/policy/technology/40 ... pose-qanon

QAnon the group I have never heard of, that showed up at a Trump rally with signs that said "Q" now has had Anonymous declare war on them.

Its kind of like when Anthony Bourdain died and all of a sudden Snoopes had a thing saying the Clinton's didn't do it. When I didn't know that anyone was saying they did.

City of West Hollywood calls for Trump Walk of Fame star to be removed
The resolution to request the removal of Trump's star's was unanimously adopted by the West Hollywood City Council but is not legally binding as the city has no jurisdiction over the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
God, grant me serenity to accept the things I can't change
Courage to change the things I can
And the firepower to make a difference.
