    Yep we have the best democracy and best politicians money can buy on both sides of the isle. And you actually wonder who they work for? And you actually believe people like the Koch bros,, Trump, large corporations or any other member of the 1% care about your ideology or religious beliefs. For god’s sake you waste time watching TV shows where celebrities, some who have less than zero talent, dance with a professional dancer. Read, go spend time outdoors doing anything, go spend some time on the real arts and culture. You might still have a chance to be something other than a chronic low information voter.

    “I’ve found very few situations where Republicans cheat,” Giuliani said….. This guy would lie to St. Peter that he wasn’t really dead and if that didn’t work that he always told the truth. Except he is the poster child for the old joke about lawyers, “you know they are lying because their lips are moving”. It is well known that the only well known, documented, systematic voter fraud in the US occurred in WV up until the 1980′s, where the county sheriff was paid by both parties to list their candidates on the ballot first. As it was understood in the country that the country sheriff wanted people to vote for the guys he listed first. And it had nothing to do with which party they were in, it had to do with who paid the Sheriff more money. Read people its a much better source of information than liars like this clown and rush.

    Ok the government does not sponsor it in any way shape or form. So perhaps you should consider looking up the definition of sponsored. All the government has done is carry out the supreme court ruling that affirmed the under the framework laid out in Roe v. Wade women can exercise their constitutional right to privacy and self determination relative to their reproductive decisions. And if you really had any concept of the constitution you would know that such rights certainly cannot be limited or prohibited based on merely a religious based belief.

    “Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider” Also the largest single provider of women’s health services since that is 98% for what they do. But their are liars and then there are damn liars.

    “My prayer is that Christians will not be deceived by the liberal media about what is at stake for future generations.” Better that they should be deceived by me and those like me who ride on my fathers coat tails, make an absurd amount of money in the name of the Lord for the sole purpose of making the money, not spreading the gospel.

    Well good thing the show hasn’t got to him. And this is a guy some people could handle a really difficult and intense international crisis. Geez, it is a comedy satire show. Does the term emotional IQ ring a bell.

    Nice try but the fact is he appears afraid to release them and there can only be a couple of reasons and none of them are positive.

    “If you don’t appreciate our military and their ability to defend us, find one you can and go live under their rule.” Korea had nothing to do with DEFENSE, Vietnam had nothing to do with DEFENSE, Iraq had nothing to do with DEFENSE, etc. etc. And if you don’t realize that what Eisenhower warned the US about in terms of the military industrial complex has not transformed limited war into an industry, then you are the low information voter they have developed you into. The US spends almost as much of the rest of the world combined on the military. So are we expecting to fight the entire world, including our allies at the same time…..of course in defense.

    “You certainly have no clue about the constitution. One of the few delegated powers given to the federal government is national security.” Ok Mr. Expert, actually the constitution is clear in terms of a national DEFENSE, not national security. And the founding fathers were clear that the US should not use a military for offensive actions. And they certainly did not intend for us to put our nose into other countries affairs, simply because large corporate interests want us to. “There is nothing that is more efficient than a free market.” If that was even remotely true you would not have virtually every large corporation paying lobbyists to payoff congress to make laws and write regulations that create barriers to entry and protect them from higher quality and lower priced goods via patents and trade restrictions. And by the way there is not one example of a truly free market in the world, because one of the 3 requirements for a free market is FULL information on both the part of suppliers and consumers. Which means consumers know what the true cost of goods is and there is no such thing as proprietary formulas and proprietary ingredients. And if you look really hard you will find out that capitalism doesn’t really mean make as much money as you can regardless of how you make it.

    Ah you mean like free public education in the US through high school. And yes the community pays for that to and before cowardly republicans in many states, corporations and businesses also contributed in property taxes. Perhaps you are unaware that universities in South Africa were free to ALL students regardless of means up until this year. Not just the students who you feel better than because of their color.

    “Even if you’re a Democrat, this should piss you off.” Wow your tough tomigirl…… unfortunately ann coulter has already taken on the role of the little girl in school who waves her hand non-stop and says or does whatever is necessary to get attention. If you had any concept of being a journalist you would report that the countless benghazi investigations that wasted $$millions of taxpayer money found essentially nothing. Heck even dana loesch when pressed on exactly what hillary was guilty was could only come up with, she didn’t react fast enough regarding intelligence that the US embassies in the region might be attacked. Now if you apply the same standard to Bush and Rice regarding the intelligence in the months prior to 9/11 would you shrill as loud and demonstrate how little class you have?

  • [-3] October 14, 2016 at 10:44am

    Well because he can’t. And what is different than his refusal to share his tax returns until the appropriate time. The fact that they are under audit means nothing, as he certainly can share what he has filed, just like any other citizen.

  • [-1] October 14, 2016 at 10:43am

    You made a cogent rational point regarding the fact that bill clinton is not running, but ignored the fact that hannity and these women are obviously lying about not being contacted by the media. And clearly, Paula Jones was all over the press when she first made the allegations regarding bill clinton in the 1990′s. Despite what trump and his brietbart goons want to project, bill clinton’s disgracing of the white house is not a current story. And before you take hannity’s word and the other lying conservative media, go actually read the transcripts from the countless, wasteful benghazi investigations that found essentially nothing. Heck even dana loesch when pressed for exactly what hillary clinton was guilty of in terms of benghazi, could only come up with she didn’t react fast enough. And if the same “didn’t react fast enough” standard was applied to Bush and Rice with respect to 9/11 and the FACT that intelligence indicated there would be an attack on US soil… would you evaluate them? Either apply your criteria and condemnation equally and without any ideological bias or you really do lack credibility. Not as badly as hannity, but certainly to some degree. Hannity is nothing more than a ratings seeking liar.

    Yo leon, how’s about asking him about a policy issue that matters or why congress isn’t doing their jobs. He is neither a prosecutor in any of the allegations made against Trump, nor his defense attorney. So why would he even consider responding to such a foolish question. Go find a real story and spare us the bait click posts.

  • [1] October 13, 2016 at 10:45am

    Actually, I disagree with you here in terms of whether these accusations should have seen the light of day. These women gave up their right to bring forth such accusations given that they didn’t make them at the time the alleged behavior occurred. And if they made a calculated decision at the time to remain quiet because it would help their careers, then that is a form of consent or forgiveness. And the NY Times and this site are all showing the complete lack of integrity and ethics by running these stories. But that’s what happens when capitalism creeps into the news room and they are required to be profit centers. High visibility stories and bait click posts. But I do agree that Trump by responding to these types of stories as opposed to staying on message is hurting himself. I left him when he published a tax plan that benefited the wealthy, large corporations at the expense of the middle class and never ending deficits. Alas, I was hoping he would bring a business mind to DC and demand that congress have the courage to balance the budget by either cutting spending or increasing revenue. It is time for congress to actually do something besides just talk and hold BS hearings about benghazi and emails. They have real responsibilities besides wasting money on countless politically motivated hearings.

    “4 years? If Mrs. Clinton is elected POTUS it will be the end of the Republic as we know it. We’re looking at a “rough” rest of our lives.” Notwithstanding the drama queen statement, you really don’t know what you don’t know. This has never been a true republic in function and where we are is a direct result of where the large powerful corporations and wealthy have led us. We have the best politicians that money can buy on both sides of the isle and if you really believe that Trump, Clinton, Cruz, Rubio, Carson or anyone else would have significantly changed that you are delusional at best. You really think fictitious attacks on the 2nd. amendment, religious freedom, abortion, ISIS has anything to do with what is going on in this country. Take 10 minutes and educate yourself on who really benefits from federal spending, particularly deficit spending and then look at the concentration of wealth. If we were really a true democracy and really were a capitalistic country with true free markets, the concentration of wealth would decrease, not increase. But when you are in fact a monarchy that is controlled by the large corporations and the wealthy, you get a never increasing concentration of wealth. And keep in mind the wealthy individuals who currently control 90% of the wealth, really don’t care if the status quo is maintained. They have almost all of the wealth and power anyway. So you just keep wallowing in the parlor games that keep your focus off the truth.

    Well this “victim” isn’t 13 anymore so the burden of proof better be rather high, as she should have made her accusations at the time of the assault, not because it is politically convenient, or personally satisfying to get revenge against one or both of these men.

    “any church who hosts a public — or “secular” — event must also follow the regulation” No doubt hosts would refer to receiving money or compensation for use of the meeting space and in that instance the church is not acting as a religious organization but as a business. And as a business offering space to the public or secular organizations for payment they should follow the constitution and the applicable law. And under the constitution you cannot discriminate against another citizen based on your or their religious beliefs. And while this statement “A mass/service is a public event. You don’t check for credential at the door. This law targets the very existence of the Church as a place of worship.” is the same BS misinformation that rush will put forth to his low information voters it doesn’t change the essence of the transaction. If Churches want to act as businesses and rent their meeting rooms to the public and secular groups they must treat their customers equally, regardless of their religious beliefs or sexual orientation. Once again, rather than put forth the christian evangelical agenda here, the church should merely have groups that use their space make “unrelated” donations to the church and then they are not functioning as a business. But you can’t have it both ways.

    dave, let me clue you on to something. While it is true that gentlemen don’t speak about women the way trump does and they certainly don’t engage in the behavior he is being accused of. But they also don’t repeat what would amount to hearsay 15 years after the fact. If this woman was felt so violated and was so horrified by these actions she would have reported it to the authorities if no one else would listen. However, if she made a calculated decision that it would hurt her career or rather she could further her career by not demonstrably rebuking him, then she is a willing participant in the behavior. And spare me the power or authority figure defense. All individuals are responsible for their actions and lack of action. Including repeating this type of crap for the sole purpose of generating bait clicks.

    “What is sad is you believe the lamestream media.” Ok let’s not feel a need to identify rush as the source of your own ignorance and scapegoating. Trump is who he is and is responsible for his actions and his own statements. And NO gentlemen do not talk like him in the locker room, at least not gentlemen who care about their wives and daughters. And even if he was “bragging”, who brags about sexual assaulting women, and further who would tolerate and encourage such degrading statements. Certainly not someone who claimed to be a conservative, a christian and a true american.
