Trump demands journalists correct stories on the use of tear gas. According to the CDC, it was tear gas.

The truth boils down to an exercise in semantics.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: “Riot control agents (sometimes referred to as “tear gas”) are chemical compounds that temporarily make people unable to function by causing irritation to the eyes, mouth, throat, lungs, and skin.”
And, according to the CDC, “several different compounds” fall under this definition, and are employed by security forces, including military and police, in riot control situations.


Among others, they include chloroacetophenone (CN), more commonly referred to as “mace,” or pepper sprays — in other words, the compound that was deployed in Lafayette Square — and chlorobenzylidenemalononitrile (CS), “one of the most commonly used tear gases in the world,” according to an article in the British Medical Journal.

Methodology is off. Small sample only 700 and they are weighing it towards Democrats.

So much for A rated.
Where do you see the methodology?
I found one here for pew.

I wonder what percentage of pollsters tell these people to F off with their annoying polling.

Just follow the link to Monmouth then got the pdf.



They got stuff laughably wrong, not even in line with the last election.https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/democracy/reports/2017/11/01/441926/voter-trends-in-2016/

All because, his little run to the bunker last Friday,....the frailties of an egomaniac.
Pres. of Law and Order will sadly not win a reelection, GOP will lose the Senate, Dems will increase their majority in the House of Reps. GOP got royally conned, and Dems will have a FDR period of redefining cleaning up America.


Could have just done the standard -White House : Any enquiries regarding the protection of the President , is referred to the relevant federal agency , in this case the Secret Service. SS : We do not discuss the protocols in place to insure the safety of the President and the Fist Family. But nope...

Rep. Steve King—Who Embraced White Supremacy—Loses Primary Amid Nationwide Protests Against Racism

The guy Trump and Ben Shapiro embraced.

But what was interesting is that Feenstra didn't run on King's white supremacy being bad. He ran on King being an "ineffective ally" for Trump because he isn't on committees anymore.

This part of the peaceful group according to you?

The story of the statue. https://www.google.com/amp/s/6abc.com/amp/philadelphia-news-frank-rizzo-statue-racism/6228470/

City work crew removing it.

The guy was tough on crime so he got reelected a few times, but apparently that's racist.
Stanning on behalf of a statue of an unrepentant racist? Just... why?

Federalist running propaganda? What a shock.

The U.S.Park Police, one of the law enforcement agencies involved with clearing the park on Monday,denied using tear gas. But the agency acknowledged using "pepper balls," another chemical irritant.

What is a pepper ball?
A pepper ball is a projectile that contains chemicals, like pepper spray, that would irritate the eyes and lungs. Such a combination with smoke canisters would create clouds of a chemical irritant that would cause tearing.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests that "tear gas" and "riot control agents" are terms that can be used interchangeably. On its website, the agency also states that "pepper spray" is a "riot control agent."

Uhm. Unnecessary to call in the military for one guy screaming in another guys face. There was no looting, no property damage, no murder. Everything worked out okay.

And carrying guns with them isn't a problem.

1A and all that. It's applicable to both sides.
Yeah, they just shut down a State legislature, no biggie. And still the cops didn't escalate. Real mysterious.

Bystanders and witnesses have said that the crowd was not protesting when the police arrived. Police claim that they were returning fire after the crowd began shooting.
Good thing cops never lie about these things.

What does a 5 second Google search show you about the media reporting on this?

Peggie gets fact-checked on a Federalist tweet he posts... Immediately posts Mollie Hemingway.
