Rachel Maddow won her case in court and her lawyers never even had to call her a liar, how about Tucker?
Winning her court case is irrelevant. She won it the same as Tucker on the same basis. "Opinion"

Cuomo with his fake Covid seclusion, Joy lying about her past homophobic statements. The list is endless actually.
So in other words you lied? Are you now also a bootlicker? Or perhaps people can critique unwarranted attacks without being labelled one.

In that interview Tucker mentions other hosts lying and his own guilt of lying, but specifically said he tries to never do that on air. Yet you construed this as he always lies.
So back to your previous statement. It does not seem that you apply your standards consistently.

There is no bastion of truth. If you believe that you're blinkered.

I've regularly said I love Nicolle Wallace, but don't let that disturb your sleep in that human-battery pod of yours, Kieppie.
Yes Greg people can like other people. I'm glad you realise this. Is this only because she's on MSNBC?

Does this negate bootlicking for the other hosts?
I mean, you are one that brings up the topic so often.

I’mma just summarise the last two days for folks who don’t see how you play your game, Kieppie.

First you assert, unequivocally, “Some more proof that celebrities should not be listened to... Not even if you for some reason like their WAPs

I point out that ya boi, Tucker *is*, in fact, listening to celebrities with his “which seems sensible” take.

Realising your position is untenable, you backtrack, slipping off the “celebrities should not be listened to” highway, and onto a “her right to express her views” red herring side road, inadvertently giving personal credence to...

A

Celebrity.

Then, you bluster to buy time as a deflection... Smoke to cover your ass you've just shown the whole world.

When time comes calling, you shake your fist at me, who's still on the “celebrities should not be listened to” highway, from your clown car on the “her right to express her views” red herring side road.

The "celebrities should not be listened to” highway ends with Tucker sending a crew to Trinidad because of something a goddamn celebrity said... You know, that thing you asserted, unequivocally, right at the get-go, that no one should do, not even if they for some reason like their WAPs.

But you’ve fought the fight, you’ve patched your cognitive dissonance well enough to carry on, and your gang has eaten up that delicious red herring you’ve been serving.

Sadly, the rest of us are laughing at you because you’re a…

confederate, insurrectionist sympathiser

Clown.

Lol. The gap will close quite a lot. Still millions of votes to count which will be heavily Republican. Look at how much the percentage has changed since Orbital posted already. Read greggy boy, read. A 6 percent outperformance in a little less than a year is great especially in a hostile environment like Commiefornia California.

This is a dumb take though, just because a Democrat would vote to replace Newsom with another Democrat doesn't mean they would vote for a Republican in an election year.

Problem is there are no real suitable candidates, so voters will probably abstain or retain the status quo. EDIT: it will also vary by county, those counties with less issues will keep newsom while people in other counties are not happy with the state of affairs.

There you already make the mistake.
I laugh at her idiotic anecdotal story. Not her "don't be bullied" decide for yourself. Tucker said the same.
No point arguing further if you miss the first point. I know reading comprehension was decades ago, but please try.

Thanks for playing Greg

Yeah there are loads of variables. Regarding no suitable candidates, that's American politics in a nutshell, politics worldwide in general really.

The Hudson mayor is asking all five school board members to resign or face possible criminal charges over high school course material that he said a judge called "child pornography."

Parents said there was a prompt that asked students to "write a sex scene you wouldn't show your mom," and another which said "rewrite the sex scene from above into one that you'd let your mom read."

"We did not exercise due diligence when we reviewed this resource and as a result, we overlooked several writing prompts among the 642 that are not appropriate for our high school audience," Wilch said. "…We feel terrible. At no time were any of these inappropriate prompts selected or discussed, but still they were there and they were viewable, and you can't unsee them."

While emphasizing he is not familiar with the Hudson Board of Education's process to approve curriculum, Lusher said school boards typically have a process where curriculum is reviewed by committees before it comes before the board for its approval. He said he believes it's "unlikely that something would get to them that is of such moral turpitude that it would bring criminal charges."


This story highlights how little school boards are actually aware of when it comes to resources used in the school system. If a committee can greenlight a resources and it appears benign on it's surface then it can make it into the classroom.

This is why students or parents speaking up when such material is found is so important.
Yet they are ridiculed and school boards are protected?

It's been fun watching you define the abstract, and then go on to attack and deconstruct your own principles, Kieppie.

I found a more age appropriate pic to sum up your position...

You project your interpretation of my post and then just run with it. Doesn't matter if it's correct or not. You did the same with the abortion "debate"

So to use your analogy. Yes I'm still on the don't listen to celebrities as with this anecdotal story, but at the same time they have the right to say what they want and the message about individual freedom happens to be correct.

When Nicky fans prove to be more intelligent than Greg :X3:

A new book claims that General Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the Pentagon was so worried about a coup attempt during the 2020 presidential election that top brass drew up contingency plans to stop a power grab by former President Trump.

As the former president pushed his narrative about a stolen election, the nation's top military officer worried Mr. Trump or his supporters could attempt a coup, Washington Post reporters Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker write in the forthcoming book, "I Alone Can Fix It."

"They may try, but they're not going to f---ing succeed," Milley is quoted as saying. "You can't do this without the military. You can't do this without the CIA and the FBI. We're the guys with the guns."
On Thursday, Mr. Trump fired back at the news, calling the claims "so ridiculous."
The book also claims Milley was not alone in his concerns. Top Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, told Milley to assure her that Mr. Trump would not use nuclear weapons, the book said.

When asked by CBS News if he had similar conversations with Milley, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said "I'm going to keep my conversations between myself and General Milley private."

Milley himself was criticized for appearing with Mr. Trump on June 1, 2020, after protesters were forcefully cleared from Lafayette Square in front of the White House. Milley later apologized.

Which turned out to be a big nothing burger. Leaving only Milley guilty of organizing a coup?
Haha Milley apologised for Lafayette Square for no reason, yet this will be ok.

Anyway a more detailed article from Axios.


  • In the account, Milley reportedly assures the Chinese general that Trump would not attack China and that if Trump did decide to attack then Milley would give his Chinese counterpart a secret heads up.
Behind the scenes: In mid-October 2020, top Pentagon officials grew concerned about intelligence they'd seen. It showed the Chinese were consuming their own intelligence that had made them concerned about the possibility of a surprise U.S. strike against China, three sources familiar with the situation tell Axios.
Around the same time Esper learned of the Chinese concerns, he also learned that a long-planned deployment to Asia had been moved up a couple of weeks earlier than previously planned, to accommodate COVID quarantine protocols.

  • Esper told colleagues the last thing the Chinese needed to see at that moment — when they were already misreading Washington's intentions — was more planes, according to one of the sources.
  • Esper went so far as to delay this long planned exercise in Asia until after the election, to lower the temperature.

At least know we know why that exercise was cancelled.
