Sometimes you don't. The story is that the report says there was no collusion. Not that Republic have "broken" with the "intelligence community". lol

There is the OLD joke I have too often repeated which involves a Boston Guardian Globe reporter witnessing a young boy take out a rabid dog to save a bunch of orphans and Ted Kennedy's alibi.

"With an arm like that, you could pitch for the Red Sox! Headline: Home Grown Young Pitching Talent Saves. . . . blah blah" you can see how this "shaggy dog" joke develops. Boy admits he does not come from Boston, blah . . . blah . . . finally says he is a Mother Fucking Yankees fan.

Next day, Globe Headline: "Viscous Punk Bastard from New York Slaughters Treasured Family Pet"

Which is basically all that is happening here. Schiff is making a fool out of himself, but he laughs all the way to the Con'tituents Bank. I remind again that if it was Her Turn both Houses would have scopes so far up her fundament on Bengazi, Whitewater--remember that?!--e-mails, uranium, collusion, it would make this seem a minor distraction. The Dems would squawk "NO EVIDENCES . . . thanks" whilst the Repubs would blame the Dems and Her Turn for covering up the Evidences!

Just as Schiff whines that "15 months is not enough!" so would he and the Dems be condemning the Republicans for continuing investigations beyond six months while the same gloating Republicans would claim "we're just at the Tip of the Iceberg! [Time-shares available!--Ed.]"

But you can only FAIL like Her Turn: she goes to India and claims she lost women's votes BECAUSE they did what their husbands told them to do. Really:
'What happened in my election is I was on the way to winning white women until former director of the FBI Jim Comey dropped that very ill-advised letter on Oct. the 28th and my numbers just went down… All of a sudden white women who were going to vote for me, and frankly standing up to the men in their lives and the men in their work places were being told, “She’s going to jail, you don’t want to vote for her. It’s going to be terrible you can’t vote for that.” It stopped my momentum and it decreased my vote enough. Because I was ahead and I was winning and I thought I had fought my way back,' she concluded.

In 15 months they couldn't even answer "what justiifies this investigation".

Expect to see FAKENEWS about Trump firing TIllerson for criticizing RUSSHUH even though a week the Media (tm) were saying Putin installed Tillerson and that he was a puppet.

Even though they've already reported Tillerson was on his way out.

Even though they've already reported that Pompeo was likely to replace him.

Fake News on Faux News? Say it ain't so!

https://www.commentarymagazine.com/fore ... ria-trump/
On Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov addressed journalists inquiring about a gruesome chemical attack on civilians in Syria that took dozens of lives over the weekend. He insisted that there was little evidence to support the consensus opinion that this was the familiar work of the Assad regime. The Russian defense ministry went a step further, calling the ghastly footage of writhing victims and lifeless children “yet another fake.”

This reprehensible whitewashing of culpability for mass murder should disgust all Americans. But it does not. Sadly, Donald Trump’s most committed defenders in the conservative press didn’t have to wait for Moscow to send out marching orders before anticipating the Kremlin’s line and repeating it uncritically for American audiences.

On Monday night, Fox News Channel host Tucker Carlson suggested that this weekend’s nightmarish chemical attack on Douma might not have been the work of the Assad regime, if it happened at all. “All the geniuses tell us that Assad killed those children, but do they really know that? Of course, they don’t really know that,” he said. “They’re making it up.”

Carlson added that “both sides in the Syrian civil war possess chemical weapons” and asked how it would “benefit Assad” to deploy either chlorine or a substance like Sarin against civilians? He added for emphasis that the April 2017 sarin attack on Khan Shaykhun that resulted in the Trump administration’s ordering strikes on a Syrian airfield was “propaganda” that was “designed to manipulate Americans.” These and other assertions in this sprawling monologue represent nothing less than undiluted Russian propaganda.
If that's true that would seem to put Carlson at odds with what Trump himself has said about the matter. (He placed the blame on "Animal Assad" as well as Russia and Iran for backing him.)

"Undiluted Russian propaganda." Why is Tucker Carlson parroting the Russian line?
Don’t take my word for it. Just peruse Kremlin-funded sources of misinformation broadcast into the West, and you’ll find Carlson’s conclusions are common to a particular form of agitprop. The Kremlin-backed news outlet RT (formerly Russia Today) ran reports in 2017 alleging that “the rebels themselves” were responsible for their own gassing because of the power that their victim status conferred. It’s the same line they’ve taken since 2013, when the Damascus suburb of Ghouta was the target of a vicious Sarin attack that killed hundreds and injured 1,700 more. Another RT piece questioned what Assad would have to gain from such attacks. And, after all, Syria surrendered all its chemical weapons upon Moscow’s urging in 2014. Remember? Most recently, another Russian propaganda farm, the online publication Sputnik, insisted that the Douma attack, like the 2017 gassing of civilians in Khan Shaykhun, was a false flag operation orchestrated by the rebels themselves. RT agreed with this assessment.

To support Carlson’s claim that it was the rebels wot done it, Carlson cited a February confession by Defense Secretary James Mattis revealing that the United States did “not have evidence” to establish the Assad regime’s culpability in the 2017 attack that led to a U.S. cruise-missile attack on a Syrian airbase. This assertion is cited frequently by apologists for the genocidal regime in Damascus and its benefactors in Moscow and Tehran. It also appears to stem from an ambiguously worded Associated Press article summarizing Mattis’s comments. Politico’s military-affairs reporter, who was present when those comments were made, noted in his dispatch that Mattis acknowledged the validity of the “groups on the ground, NGOs, fighters” and others who substantiated the details of this chemical attack. His confession was merely the acknowledgment that the Pentagon—which does not have assets on the ground in Western Syria—was working to confirm those reports (which included a definitive account from the UN’s Joint Investigative Mechanism establishing Assad’s culpability).

So why would Carlson willfully mislead his audience and advance Russian geopolitical narratives in defense of a blood-soaked regime that threatens American interests? Well, perhaps it was his presumption that this is what Donald Trump really wants, whether he knows it or not.

Trump’s commitment to defending Putin’s honor was once so steadfast that he erected vacuous moral equivalencies that denigrate his own country and those who dedicate their lives to national service. It was that shallow impulse that surely led the American right to wrap their arms around a sordid figure like Julian Assange even though many of those same people denounced him as an enemy of the United States only a few years earlier. Long after Trump’s behavior made it clear that U.S. interests in the Levant conflicted with Moscow’s, Carlson continued to promote Russia’s value as an ally in Syria.

The right-wing media class has yet to acknowledge the extent to which the Trump administration has turned on Russia. For over a year now, this White House pursued an admirable policy of containment. It has instituted an unforgiving sanctions regime targeting close Putin associates, sold energy and weapons to Moscow’s adversaries, and thwarted its diplomatic endeavors. Even if Trump personally still clings to the fantasy that he can orchestrate a rapprochement with Russia, the president hasn’t been shy about implicating Moscow for the bloodshed in Syria. So, why has the #MAGA right stood so steadfastly by Putin on Syria even as Trump is abandoning him? Perhaps because they don’t mirror Trump; Trump mirrors them. What’s more, they know it.

It really is a pity (and damaging to getting anything useful done) because they're not exactly starving for real material to criticize him on.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

There was some podcast I was listening to where an NPR reporter was interviewing a little girl who came over the border. The reporter asked the little girl if she had been brought over by a coyote. Apparently she took that literally because she laughed and answered "No, it was a man!" :lol:

Some mainstream media stand by Trump 'animals' comment stories, despite other organizations' corrections
Several news organizations have refused to correct wildly misleading reports that took a comment made by President Trump out of context, even after other organizations such as the Associated Press have issued corrections.

Earlier this week President Trump referred to dangerous MS-13 gang members as “animals,” but several media organizations conveniently took his comments made it appear that he was talking about illegal immigrants.

The Associated Press, New York Times, Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, CBS News and CNN all published misleading pieces of content that failed to mention Trump was speaking about MS-13.

The AP issued a tweet correcting its error, and CNN also clarified its initial report. The other news organizations? Not so much.

...and now we have the White House doubling down on the terminology.

whitehouse.gov: What You Need To Know About The Violent Animals Of MS-13

Despite the overblown treatment of the original comments by the media, I decided I do have a serious problem with this anyway. It's no longer an off the cuff comment or an impulsive tweet--it's now an intentional terminology choice.

Am I overreacting myself? Because I can't say I like the pattern of identifying a particular enemy and dehumanizing them. Sounds a little familiar. Sure, it's not all the illegal immigrants. Some of them, I assume, are good people.
