Tweety Birds

Generally an unmoderated forum for discussion of pretty much any topic. The focus however, is usually politics.

8 out of 18 times

All it took a was one MAGAt to deny the proof and undo a year's work.
Ah, I should have clicked on the link before posting :oops: . I just responded to the quote. Must have been tough getting those 8.

I didn't click it either. I just responded to the news that this particular MAGAt was the lone hold out on 10 charges. Charges that 11 rational adults unanimously found guilty.

This is how all future trials against trump will likely play out.

Question

How did prosecutors allow a full blown trumpette on the jury?
Did she lie during the selection process?
Can she be charged with lying to the court?
Should she be hung?

No if it's a man, it's difficult to fight their Y-chromosome imprinting.
Yes if it's a woman. ;)
However, Faux Noise interviewed a female Trumpette juror who does not reveal the gender of the holdout Trumpette juror.

I'd also be curious why this didn't come into play:

Manafort juror reveals lone holdout prevented Mueller team from convicting on all counts
Poll: Mueller approval rating jumps 11 points

... The poll revealed that 59 percent of registered voters approve of Mueller’s investigation, marking an 11-point jump from respondents who said the same in a July Fox News poll. Thirty-seven percent of respondents said they disapprove of Mueller's probe.
It's funny, I first heard about this poll on MSNBC, so I went looking on Faux Noise. I tried "mueller approval poll", "mueller approval" and "mueller poll" - no results. I was able to link to it from this The Hill article, http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/08 ... l-822.html , but it's in this raw and not very user-friendly format. Now that I knew what to search for, I tried "Fox News Poll". This is it, apparently no article at all anywhere. :roll: We're lucky that we have MSNBC and The Hill to tell us about news that Faux Noise pays for and generates, aren't we?

"The poll was conducted by telephone with live interviewers August 19-21, 2018 among a random national sample of 1,009 registered voters (RV)."

Only August 21 (Super Tuesday!) would have included people that knew about the Manafort and Cohen convictions, but they were imminent before that. If Manafort had skated, Mueller’s support would have soon been in the toilet. I think non-holdout Trumpette juror Paula Duncan should win some sort of integrity or courage award.

Maybe, but I doubt it.
Trumpettes went into 'coffee boy' mode on Manafort long ago.
The mixed verdicts don't give the paranoid crybabies much of a conspiracy to grab on to.
I should say not serious or numerous ones. Anyone can say, "Die, bitch," on facebook.

She says:
... But the verdict gave Duncan a license to share her story without fear.

“Had the verdict gone any other way, I might have been,” Duncan said....
"any other way" - despite being a Trumpette, it sounds like she's saying that all guiltys or all acquittals would have been worse. If so, quite fair and reasonable of her.

Donald Trump Was Forced To Unblock Twitter Critics. Now They're Getting Sweet Revenge.

President Donald Trump ― or whoever has access to his Twitter account ― apparently spent part of Tuesday evening unblocking users.

Since taking office, Trump has blocked a number of people for criticizing him or even just cracking jokes at his expense, including celebrities such as model Chrissy Teigen and author Stephen King.

However, in May, a federal judge said Trump’s blocks were unconstitutional as his Twitter feed was a public forum which “has been used in the course of the appointment of officers (including cabinet secretaries), the removal of officers and the conduct of foreign policy.”

U.S. District Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald advised Trump to use Twitter’s “mute” function instead and asked the president and White House social media director Dan Scavino to unblock the users. So Trump unblocked the seven plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed by the Knight First Amendment Institute, but not the others he had previously blocked.

Although the Justice Department announced in June that it would appeal, earlier this month, Knight asked the White House to unblock an additional 41 accounts. On Tuesday night, that happened ― at least for some of them.

Knight is now asking others who have been Trump-blocked to get in touch....
:---P

Wow, that's blatant. Comments:
Are you implying that it’s the Attorney General’s job to quash investigations of your political allies?
No, he's saying it outright!
Somewhere out there is a federal employee who just found out that Trump canceled his pay raise. And that employee has access to Trump’s tax returns.
:lol:
So what do you suggest? Letting the crooks run wild so that Republicans can win more House seats?
Josh Campbell

Sounds like he’s suggesting political ramifications *should* factor into prosecutorial decisions. 🤔
Josh I'm glad you are good at interpreting his nonsense. I gave up a long time ago 😂
It's no coincidence that @realDonaldTrump attacks our top Russian crime investigators -

Trump’s Top Targets in the Russia Probe Are Experts in Organized Crime
Some of President Trump’s favorite targets in the Russia probe have spent their careers in the Justice Department and the FBI investigating organized crime and money laundering, particularly as they pertain to Russia.
In nearly three decades at the Justice Department, Mr. Ohr has made a career of supporting and facilitating important cases that targeted Russian organized crime.

Bruce Ohr Fought Russian Organized Crime. Now He’s a Target of Trump.
Well, when you put it this way...!!

This is interesting:
Trump escalates attacks on his attorney general

... The first two Republicans to endorse Trump in the Republican presidential primaries were indicted on separate charges last month: Rep. Duncan Hunter of California on charges that included spending campaign funds for personal expenses and Rep. Chris Collins of New York on insider trading. Both have proclaimed their innocence....
Possibilities:

1. Complete coincidence.
2. Trumpettes are being targeted by the GOP DoJ.
3. Corrupt pols are more likely to support POSPOTUS sooner.

The headline writer misses the boat. The spat with Sessions is entertaining, but POSPOTUS is openly attacking the legal MANDATE that prosecutions not be guided by politics. That is an attack on America.

Wasn't there some sort of bullshit story concerning trump and someone's birth certificate or was it Cruz being involved in JFK'S assassination or was it ...?

Nah, probably wasn't trump pushing a lie. He only says the truth.

Billions of dollars are, and will be, coming into United States coffers because of Tariffs. Great also for negotiations - if a country won’t give us a fair Trade Deal, we will institute Tariffs on them. Used or not, jobs and businesses will be created. U.S. respected again!
Ummm,
Any money raised through tariffs is paid by US consumers. He's bragging about indirectly increasing taxes on them;
Jobs and businesses will be destroyed by retaliatory tariffs and by manufacturing for export moving offshore;
A trade war, like suicide, has never led to respect.
