Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, June 14, 2019

President Trump on Friday said he will not fire White House counselor Kellyanne Conway after a federal watchdog recommended that she be removed for repeatedly violating the Hatch Act by engaging in partisan political activity on behalf of her boss.

It is becoming more and more evident with each passing day that Pres trump is not the "Law and Order" President that he told his supporters he was.

It is becoming more and more clear that Pres Trump cherishes loyalty to him above all else, even above loyalty to the Constitution.

How did he justify his support of Ms Conway? He said she is loyal to him. Not that he thought she had not made those ethical digressions, but that she was loyal to him.

Does anyone else see a problem with Pres Trump's "l'état, c'est moi" approach to the Presidency?

Have you ever watched the TV show BattleBots (it's on the Science channel and the Discovery channel)?

It, is some aspects is quite reflective of what happens here. Sometimes when the two bots are fighting each other the producers add a mini-bot into the arena. Not for any specific purpose, but more to be a nuisance that needs to be tended to. The mini-bot is too small to do any damage, all it can do is annoy.

Our drinking friend here reminds me of those nuisance mini-bots. Not significant, but a minor occurrence that is fun to watch. Something to toy with.

The Democrats are dumb and desperate - but this is dumb and desperate even for them. With more and more Dems openly accusing the President of crimes with result in the death penalty with ZERO justification - it is entirely hypocritical to now claim the Hatch Act. Everyone could have predicted where this was going to end with the deranged Left started amping up their attacks. Much like the nuclear option, up or down votes, etc - this is exploding in the Dem's faces. Why are Dems unable to see more than 2 weeks into the future?

Deflections and lying are two completely different things.

When I read through the thread regarding Trump's comments about receiving campaign dirt from a foreign source Sheeple brought up Hillary and Fusion GPS and was right in doing so - there was no lie contained therein.

But it WAS a huge deflection. If you scroll way up my recollection is that Joe addressed the deflection very effectively.

You seem to be conflating a deflection - which usually illustrates hypocrisy - with a lie. They are quite different.

Point them out next time you see it.

Because I don't. There are obvious trolls but Sheepleshart isn't just trolling. His posts lack the obvious hyperbole, sarcasm or caricature of trolls.

His is a concerted effort to distort, deflect or lie with the kind of subtlety you'd expect from a practitioner of propaganda dissemination.

I disagree but if that's how you view it, plonk him.

If I may be so bold (channeling Spock with that) I'd like to offer a bit of unsolicited advice...

Over the years I've had a couple of DR members who absolutely incensed me for a number of reasons. I'm literally living vicariously through you as I watch you try to deal with Sheeple. I've been there and it can be frustrating.

Here's where the unsolicited advice comes in...

First, decide what he is as far as the DR cretin goes.

Is he a worthless troll? Ignore or plonk.

Is he a dangerous troll who mixes lies with the truth to confuse us, like the demon in "The Exorcist"? This is trickier and I think it's where you are at. Alone in a frigid bedroom chanting, "The power of JPW compels you" whilst wielding holy water, or in your case, fire water, might work. On a blog like this? The only remedy is dispassionate and factual disproval of distortions.

The last possibility is the most difficult. Maybe he's misunderstood. That requires a lot of open and honest dialogue and a healthy dose of humility to gain proper understanding.

It doesn't work.

It doesn't work on you either, which is probably why you don't see it as a problem, and why you're going to bat for him.

But, here's a thought:

Maybe you should try persuading him with facts. Since you're giving him the benefit of the doubt nobody else is.

FFS how many times do we have to see internecine warfare between the puritopians on the left and the pragmatists on the left - Bernie Bros vs Hil-Bots - ?

Yep. He rarely if ever criticizes Republicans or Trump.

If he was such a 'progressive' he'd spend a lot more time talking up candidates he likes rather than always bashing Democrats or staying mum whenever Trump does something amoral, illegal, unpatriotic, or downright stupid.

IMO, he's a stone cold liar about ever supporting Bernie. Bernie's running but not a peep out of this alleged 'Bernie Bro?' It was all an act in his efforts to help Trump defeat Clinton.

AU,

He's on record as being a big supporter of Sanders and I'm pretty sure I saw a comment today from him that he'd vote for Warran in she were to be nominated. I know he said that if Biden were to be nominated he wouldn't vote for him but won't vote for Trump either.

Not generous at all. Spot on.

And yes, Warren is becoming a viable candidate day-by-day. The day she announced I said I'd vote for her - Hans can confirm.
The only mark she has against her is the DNA debacle. The DNC and liberal media can overcome that with blanket coverage of her policies.

Ask yourself this. Will Dems and mods stay home if she's the nominee? Will they vote Trump?

Of course not. She can win. Biden won't because the left will stay home or vote 3rd party. Promote Biden at your own risk. It's a win for Trump.

These are just three of the many organizations that work with and help settle refugees in my community.

"But before that, you were asking if refugees and asylum seekers had all their papers in order.

Yes they can be both true, because they are. Hundreds of thousands of refugees have entered the US legally and sought asylum. I welcome them and support them. They're fleeing some of the worst war-torn countries in the world. But they need to enter the US legally.

The vast majority, not all of them, but the vast majority of the folks at the southern border are job seekers. If they were refugees, they'd end their journey as soon as they reached safety.

But say they want a job in America, Okay. That's fine. There are processes and procedures for that too. And as long as they follow those directives, they're welcome as well. But to flood the border, dash across, and attempt to disappear into the US, only to claim asylum when caught?

It's you presenting the canard. and the distortion.

"You're a liar. That's really the bottom line here. You're just a deceptive sniveling little liar."

No.
I don't lie.
That is a fact.

JeffJ left out all the times SheepShart has been a silent apologist for Trump.

Yeah, can't forget all those times Bernie was mute to Trump transgressions.

Any more Republican Fables to share with the class?

I actually agree with JPW's #17. Rcade does make his small contribution to the re-election of Trump and the degradation of all honest debate by allowing posters such as SheepleS to remain on this site. The constant lies, disruption of honest conversation and trolling really have damaged this site in my opinion. I kind of get the feeling that Rcade has thrown up his arms in the air and given up. He almost never posts here anymore. His presence is just a small percentage of what it used to be. Maybe Despair has set in?

Anyway, it is Rcade's site, and if he is willing to allow it become a tool of Trump Trolls, that is his right. I can think of no legitimate journalistic reason to allow a lying troll such as Sheeple to remain here. And telling people to just 'plonk' him misses the point. He contaminates all the threads he touches whether we read his individual comments or not.

Professional courtesy from a guy who is generally happy with Trump's policies.

I've seen my user number drop from the 50s to high 40s in the past year or so.

I do not think I am willing to abandon the DR due to the likes of Sheeple, but I certainly have dramatically cut down on my number of posts from a year ago. It is one thing trying to converse with stupid people such as Boaz or Gracie, or flat out dishonest people such as Nulli. But it is a whole new level of nihilism altogether having to wade through to trolling propaganda of Sheeple. It really ruins pretty much every thread he shows up on, plonked or not.

I think he allows sheeple to stay because it boosts post counts which in turn keeps this site afloat. Without the trolls we would be looking for a new blog home.

Sorry LM, I gotta disagree with you. With the trolls many of us are increasingly looking around for a new blog home. If Rcade could end Goatman's Reign of Troll he certainly could also can end Sheeple.

Trump says he won't fire Kellyanne Conway for Hatch Act Violations

Just another article of impeachment: failure to uphold his oath of office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.

Article II of the Constitution (i.e. Take Care Clause) requires that the President "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed". By not disciplining Conway, he is violating Article II.
