You didn't even click on the links in the article. :lol:

That's OK. You're the type of person to dispute it just because it's not a fact you like.

I think your definition of "good news" needs a bit of work, Jebus.

Fun fact: Tomorrow is the 72nd anniversary of the bombing of Nagasaki.

I'm sure President Furious Firepants is well aware of his history.

Hey hey hey, settle down with the facts about food stamps!

And yo, cheebus, click the related Breitbart story from July 20 that talks about the long decline of food stamps due to, wait for it, CUTS!!!

Also, nothing from the USDA indicates the cause for the drop. But it's obvious, and Breitbart even confirm it in their earlier story.

:snack:

So the FBI executed a pre-dawn raid at Manafort's home the day after he spoke to the Senate Intel Committee.

Don't have a proper mouse on hand to copy and paste the whole article, but in laymen's terms, he's probably in deep shit.

He certainly is if they find something damning that he didn't turn over already.

However, I suspect nothing turned up because it would've leaked already.

Despite having "unidentified people close to the probe", the press only reporting it now when this raid actually happened a couple of weeks ago. I bet they were saving this story - you know, the media has got to keep this Russian collusion witch hunt on the front page somehow.

Nothing's leaked already because word has it Mueller runs a pretty tight ship. If any leaking happens, it'll be from the White House- accompanied by the cries that the leaks are fake while simultaneously condemning leakers. A Schroedinger's Spigot of sorts.

It's called 'protecting your sources'. You know, that thing that's been a bedrock of journalism for decades now?

If you're always this disingenuous it's preferable that you bow out of this discussion, but up to you really.

Or you know, a bunch of high profile lawyers and investigators, many of who'm are the elite in their fields left far higher paying jobs and risked their careers and reputations because there was absolutely nothing. Yeah ok...

The leaders of civilised nations don't take the lead from North Korean State TV and issue threats that are medieval in their metaphoric content. They don't descend to the level of savages, and when they have to act IN RETALIATION to a foreign military invasion - they will act and leave the loudmouth part to TV anchors. In fact the more they resort to verbal sabre rattling - the weaker they seem. Really, Mr. Trump? Your corporate handlers, the Senate, the Congress will let you start a REAL ground war on the Korean peninsula over retaliatory threats issued by the Korean State TV meant for DPRK's INTERNAL audience? That I got to see :lol:

And no matter how much this is painted as a victory for the current administration, - it's nothing like that. These are REAL sanctions, unlike the extra-legal Russia sanctions, sanctions which are imposed by the UN security council and the only reason they are going ahead is because neither Russia nor China decided to veto them, feeling rather edgy to have a new neighbour with nuclear weapons and an underdeveloped, unpredictable system of delivery. But in reality - the former American administration did everything in its power to have North Korea resort to nuclear weapons development. The real reason they will keep perfecting their weapons is because North Korea doesn't want to share the fate of Libya and Iraq (and you can thank Hillary Clinton for the former).

Maybe if the US government didn't wage illegal wars all over the planet, North Korean government wouldn't have such a pressing need for a nuclear weapons program in the first place? They are not so stupid as to refuse foreign investment and foreign technologies, they just don't want to pay the same price for them as Qaddafi did.

Jebus is just mad that the giant stinking orange turd that he worships is, in fact, a corrupt, sexually assaulting, racist sociopath. Which he has been for decades now.

But hey it's all "fake news" if it doesn't come from Breitbart or Fox News right? :)

Oh, so it IS still an active news story after all! Funny that, you being wrong all along. :lol:

And now your #1 hero is threatening nuclear war. Two unstable leaders in a pissing contest to see who blinks first. This is going so well.

Come on, when they sit on a story for 2 weeks only to release it on a slow news day, you know they're just doing it for ratings.

Of course they are. Especially when it paints the GOP or Trump in a bad light right?

Riiiiight? ;)

Not sure what constitutes a slow news day, as it was released nearly concurrent with the North Korea story. Of course this point will be construed as proof positive of a 'witch hunt', and the cycle begins again.

I mentioned it on the last page. That's okay, it definitely bears repeating to certain people that Trump is mentally unfit to be leading a country.

Unless by some form of luck Kim Jong Whateverthisoneis takes his lesbian haircut and goes home, but I don't see that as overly likely. Maybe Trump has a grown up on staff he can refer to who actually knows what the fuck they're doing.

Gee, what a surprise you dig up the one article that disputes the months and months of clear evidence of Russian involvement and possible collusion.

I seem to remember you jacking off like a madman to all those emails Guccifer 2.0 was leaking last year. You are so amazingly shallow it almost borders on parody at this point.
