I'm sure Clinton never had to deal with such nonsense. Oh wait. He didn't.  He did what the fuck he wanted and got away, scot free.

 

I suspect that as an experienced politician and lawyer, Clinton had a much better understanding of what was legal and what wasn't.  By no means am I saying that Clinton was ethical, just that he understood how the system worked from a legal standpoint.

-The headline implies Trump knowingly tries to break the law while the actual quote is Tillerson telling Trump the legal status of whatever the given topic was.

 

-I appreciate the roundabout acknowledgement of media bias.

 

-But you are perfectly fine with juvenile insults from any level of professional as long as they are directed at the office of the President?

 

All media has bias.  That's a given.  That said, some sources have more egregious levels of bias than others.

 

As to juvenile insults aimed at the President, that's a long standing American tradition from both sides of the aisle.  That said, I would not call Tillerson's comments "juvenile insults."  They were his honest impressions of the President.  That they happen to be rather critical does not make them insults.

And that makes it better, how?

Personally, I don't know why everyone is making fun of Mike Pence for looking asleep in the recent meeting with Trump and the Democratic leadership.  If I were stuck in a room with Donald Trump, Nanci Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, I would probably be doing the exact same thing as Pence.

That the Left and the Press would think that Jared Kushner was an actual candidate for the WH Chief of Staff says more about the underwear-on-head retardation of those entities than anything else.

 

As punishment, I'm linking the Breitbart article on Trump picking Mick Mulvaney as Kelly's replacement.

Breitbart?

 

Yeah. They're shit.

 

But most news sites can't afford to hire a copy editor or even have an editor who will read a story before it's posted.

Also, to be fair, Brietbart also has an article about Kushner being a candidate for COS.

Good thing this is a work computer. Wouldn't want that much pollution from clicking on BB on my own rig.

This is the best ya got?  The State department shared classified information with people who are legally allowed to view classified information.  Not sure what the issue is here.

      After seeing the rampant crack down on speech in the UK, I decided that more should be done than just Thoughts and Prayers. 
       
      I know that it's a scary time for our UK members. Knowing that what you say on the internet can put you on the wrong side of a Bobby's nightstick, well, I find that despicable. 
       
      So I've created this place for all your impure or degenerate thoughts. Here's how it works. 
       
      Perhaps you want to say something "offensive". Instead of saying it yourself, you can message any US member of this forum and have them act as your avatar of avarice. 
       
      For example, say you had a particularly heinous fish and chips at the local pub. You may want to say, "Oi, that cheeky fucker Barnaby William can't do a proper chip if he had a fryer for hands!"
       
      This on it's own could send you straight to jail for defamation. Moreso, if instead of chips that sent you reeling it happened to be a kebab from Omar down the street. 
       
      Now your crime has gone from offensive to racially insensitive!
       
      Anytime such an urge comes along, call on your ex colonial friends. We will translate and post your complaint for all the world to revel in, free of charge!
       
      I personally think Omar should learn to pull the fucking kebab off heat before it's crisper than his wife's crotch and blacker than his beard. That tosser!
       
      See? Don't you feel better? And now, no one will be knocking on your door, serving you with a summons for being a racist git.

      Might as well make a new thread now that the election is over.
