  1. You are making my point. You dont know what you are talking about.They had to fall back to that. They could not report that there was any factual base for reporting the Dossier because there was no factual base for it. That's how Buzzfeed got it, NO FACTS. Get the point? They HAD to go back to basically saying: "Well everyone in DC knows about this, so we must tell the public." You are completely missing, like 30,000 feet over your head, that no one would touch this story because none of it could be verified. They had to do it that way, no reputable news org would touch it.
  2. I actually agree with about 90% of that.
  3. Not when it is the same side. Look, the Steele Dossier got poo-pooed by every legitimate news source in the nation. It went downhill until they finally found BuzzFeed to publish it. No one else would touch it even though they had it for months. Read it for yourselves. Buzzfeed published not because they had verified anything, they never verified anything, and in truth sued the DNC over info on the hacking. After CNN reported the Federal Bureau of Investigation shared the dossier with then-President Barack Obama and President-elect Donald Trump, BuzzFeed decided to publish the document in its entirety. “When they made that decision, none of the BuzzFeed journalists involved knew or had any degree of awareness – let alone a ‘high degree’ of awareness – that the allegations about plaintiffs on the dossier’s last page were false, or harbored ‘serious doubts’ about that,” the filing states. Because they never even tried to fact check anything. Considering Russian cyber-attacks on the Democratic Party was already public knowledge, BuzzFeed claims they “simply filled in a few details about the hacking operation.” BuzzFeed argues the article falls under the “fair reporting privilege,” which shields journalists from liability for repeating potentially defamatory allegations if they stem from public records or a prominent, responsible organization.
  4. Nope. Just totally predictable. There are some on the Left, always there like bad breath and body odor. They just cant help themselves when it comes to Anti-Semitism. Even some of the Talking Heads at MSNBC just cant let an opportunity to take a swipe at Israel and/or Jews in particular. It's their comfort food topic. It's the thing they can talk over at the cocktail party and its always good for an emotional surge. Rep. Rashida Tlaib, Michigan Democrat, was called out Monday after Palestinian activist Abbas Hamideh, a staunch defender of the terrorist group Hezbollah, posted photos of the two of them posing at her swearing-in ceremony in Detroit. Mr. Hamideh tweeted a photo of himself Saturday with Ms. Tlaib along with the caption, “I was honored to be at Congresswoman @RashidaTlaib swearing in ceremony in #Detroit and private dinner afterward with the entire family, friends and activists across the country.” Critics were quick to point out that Mr. Hamideh, a co-founder of the pro-Palestinian group Al-Awda, which means “right of return,” has a history of praising Hezbollah leaders such as Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah and What went curiously unmentioned in all the flattering post-election coverage, however, was that Omar, who replaces Keith Ellison — a former acolyte of anti-Semitic minister Louis Farrakhan — also has some exotic notions about the Jewish people. In a 2012 tweet, for instance, the Democrat explained that “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel. #Gaza #Palestine #Israel.” Meanwhile, the other Muslim woman headed to Congress is Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants who wants to cut aid to the Jewish state because supporting it “doesn’t fit the values of our country.” Writer David Steinberg identified 105 news stories written in the immediate aftermath of Omar’s victory, and not a single one mentioned that she believed Jewry possessed mind-control abilities or that Israel was “evil.” No one called on the Democratic Party to distance itself from this rhetoric. No one at the partisan Anti-Defamation League, ostensibly tasked with stopping anti-Jewish libel but in reality busy hyperventilating over every far-flung right-wing bigot with a handful of supporters, paid her any attention. Now, it isn’t inherently anti-Semitic to be critical of Israeli political leadership or policies. The Democratic Party antagonism toward the Jewish state has been well-established over the past decade. But Omar used a well-worn anti-Semitic trope about the preternatural ability of a nefarious Jewish cabal to deceive the world. It’s something you would expect to read in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion or hear from a professor of comparative literature at Columbia University, not a US congresswoman. Omar had a chance to retract, or at least refine, her statement. Instead, she doubled down. “These accusations are without merit,” she claimed, blaming Jewish Islamophobia for the backlash. “They are rooted in bigotry toward a belief about what Muslims are stereotyped to believe.” To accuse the only democratic state in the Middle East, which grants more liberal rights to its Muslim citizens than any Arab nation, of being an “apartheid regime” is, on an intellectual level, grossly disingenuous or incredibly ignorant. And when a politician singles out Jewish allies as “evil,” but ignores every brutal theocratic regime in the area, it’s certainly noteworthy. Omar even wants the US to normalize relations with the Holocaust-denying terror-state of Iran. This seems like a fact reporters might have wanted to shoehorn into one their post-election articles. Then again, the media has a track record of tenaciously ignoring the anti-Semitism creeping into Democratic Party politics. The left, recall, has embraced the Women’s March and its co-founders, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour, even though they’re both supporters of the Nation of Islam, which has peddled anti-Jewish conspiracies about wicked Jewish influence in America. None of the leaders of the Democratic Party has said anything about the activist wing pushing these age-old hatreds. We have not heard a peep from those who see white supremacy behind every border security measure. There are elections to win, after all. And in the contemporary liberal establishment, conceived in identity politics, even many Jews have remained dutifully silent. In such an environment, members of the Congressional Black Caucus can maintain a relationship with anti-Semites without any blowback. Democrats have yet to explain why Maxine Waters and at least four other House Dems — who’ll all be in leadership positions come January — were seen on video schmoozing with the leader of the Nation of Islam. Omar’s defenders will claim she’s anti-Israel, not anti-Jewish. “Anti-Zionism” has been the preferred justification for Jew-hatred in institutions of education and within progressive activism for a long time. Now it’s coming for politics. Democrats can either allow it to be normalized, or they can remain silent. With anti-Semitic incidents on the rise across the globe and at home, it is critical that the Democratic Party, whose progressive wing has become avowedly hostile to Israel, and some of whose prominent figures have maintained ties with Louis Farrakhan, fully and unequivocally disavow anti-Semitism in all forms and recommit its support for the Jewish State. The waning support shown by the Democrats for Israel comes at a time when anti-Semitic incidents are increasing in the United States, as dramatically illustrated by the massacre in a Pittsburgh synagogue last month. Last year in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacists chanted “Jews will not replace us.” These are not isolated horrors in our nation. The Anti-Defamation League found that anti-Semitic incidents in the United States rose 57 percent in 2017, along with a 258 percent increase in the number of white supremacist propaganda incidents on college campuses. In Europe and elsewhere, the picture also is darkening. A report from the Kantor Center at Tel Aviv University found anti-Semitic feelings on the rise globally, while attacks have grown more brutal. Commentators in the United States tend to blame Donald Trump and his supporters on the “alt right” for resurgent anti-Semitism. However, what concerns us most is the rise of anti-Semitism among progressives, including top Democrats. The progressive left seems determined to undermine the “special relationship” between America and Israel, the only truly democratic ally the United States has in the Middle East, and also exhibits increasingly anti-Semitic tendencies. During her campaign, congresswoman-elect Alexandria Ocasio Cortez (D-N.Y.) decried the “occupation of Palestine,” which prompted the liberal Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz to refer to her as “the embodiment of the Democrats shifting away from Israel.” Haaretz is not wrong here. Ocasio Cortez is a darling of the Democratic Socialist faction of the Democratic Party which, in a state of “jubilation,” according to Chip Gibbons of the Democratic Socialists of America, passed a resolution in support of the Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement at its 2017 convention. They chanted “from the river to the sea, Palestine will be free!” Uttering these same words, which is code language for many Jews that stands for the destruction of Israel, recently cost CNN political analyst Marc Lamont Hill his job with the network. The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions movement demands, among other things, that Israel withdraw from the occupied territories and remove its West Bank security wall. If such proposals were enacted, the survival of Israel as a free state would be imperiled. Democrats cannot stand for this. I could go on and on. I did not post the OP's article. I was simply stating what I find to be as obvious as the nose on your face and waited for someone to respond AFTER predicting that the blatant Anti-Semitism would get a wink wink nod nod response.
  5. Dont like Warren? I like her points, her direction. Just needs to get this NA Crap behind her once and for all. When Dodd-Frank was being put together, she was the only one wanting to redo Glass-Stegall, which is much more than Dodd-Frank and what I think we really need. Her Consumer Protection work is needed. She is very much what I look for on topics and platform.
  6. <smdh> Why would heads roll at buzzfeed? They got the clicks...
  7. When did i say anything about the WE?
  8. Dub, they published the Steele Dossier because they were the only half assed news outlet that would print it. At the time, no one thought that pile of crap was real. No one.
  9. The last two Pulitzer winners at CNN got fired for releasing a one sourced news article that blew up in their faces. CNN Retracted it. Buzzfeed is Buzzfeed. It is infotainment on a good day. Buzzfeed is not a serious news org.
  10. The crickets from the forum on this thread is WAY TOO MUCH AND 100% PREDICTABLE. For the record, I went on the record, and I contacted a couple of the admins and predicted that the crickets would come out on this particular thread. It seems that Anti-Semitism is a TOLERABLE OFFENSE to some on the Left. I for one was itching to blow this thread up about the sheer hypocrisy in the article. If anybody on the Right had said or was pictured with Militant White Supremacists the Condemnation Machine would have hit overdrive. But because it's the Left and we are dealing with rampant Anti-Semitism, we get CRICKETS. This is one of the reasons so many reasonable people across the globe never take some on the American Left seriously, EVER. They have this blind spot when it comes to Israel and the Jews. Suddenly it is so "en vogue" to be Openly Anti-Semitic. Oh and throw in a few completely uninformed calls for BDS and you and the Hitler Jungen can call it a day. More 100% BS from the Brain Dead Talking Points Crowd...
  11. My church uses tons of COTH Materials. I have taught their LIFE Curriculum many times.
  12. Buzzfeed is not a news source. If you want to Read Clickbait like "100 Ways Your GF is Hotter than Ariana Grande" then you read Buzzfeed. I would actually refer to Buzzfeed as "ClickBait" more than anything.
  13. Guys, this is the kind of financial mess I just assumed would do the bastard in. He has cut corners all his life and when they flipped Cohen...well they got the motherlode. Folks, when the boot-lickers and butt-kissers at Fox turn on Trump, the story is probably 1) true and 2) Trump Admin is over.
  14. Not with you Proud...but with members of the denominations I would be naming. For the record, I attend a non-denom church that is pretty much baptist in core beliefs. But we are independent and not subject to any denom leadership.
