Can you quote where I suggested a military response?


In your posts above.

So now election meddling is an act of war.

In other words, the US is committing acts of war all over the planet.

Do you think the US meddles in Russia's elections?

Are we committing acts of war against Russia?

I suppose this is as close as you'll get to admitting that the Mueller Report is not a total exoneration/nothingburger?

Not for 99% of the population.

It's not normal to want to sit around and read a 400 page legal document.

The total of five "reviews" for the Ken Starr report on Amazon illustrate my point.

Clinton = Trump?

I have zero idea. I just enjoyed the post-Barr gloating.

Like I said, the only thing I know about the Mueller report is what I saw on CNN. And from 7AM Thursday morning to Friday night at 7PM I got 48 hours of CNN coverage in my ear.

Their summary:
1) Trump said "I'm fucked!" when he found out he was going to be investigated.
2) Trump may have committed obstruction of justice.

I'm just guessing - I may be wrong - CNN does not hold back when it comes to punching Trump.

So far I'm hearing echoes of 1998 with 100x drama. Total snooze fest.

Why do you insist on mischaracterizing what I've written?

Trump and Clinton are not the same (duh).

The investigations, in spirit, were the same

Two years ago I said this investigation will end with a few people in prison along with a perjury and obstruction of justice fiasco just like the witchunt investigations of Bill Clinton.

I was wrong on the perjury part - Trumpster wiggled his way out of being deposed, Slick Willy will wasn't lubed enough and ended up lying under oath.

Regardless, both investigations were essentially nothingburgers motivated by a certain political class.

The goal was to use a few nothingburgers to look for cancer. And when you look for cancer you find cancer.

Why do so many of you fellows have such a hard time with the concept of questions?

It's like a thing.

“And no, I'm not going to read the report.

Nobody actually wants to read that shit.”

“100% of what I know about the report I learned from CNN.”

Trump truly is a reflection of his supporters.

Is there a word for describing a person’s words in a way that totally differs from their original meaning?
