    So, you can't prove it. Now, how did I know that already? Cute only counts with babies and baby animals....not so much here. May I suggest that next you decide to make statements from your nether region (SEVERAL TIMES) you be prepared to back that excrement up......especially something that was obviously cowplop-like.

    Now Justy I did not certify that they were Democrats. This is what I said:

    "Must be Democrat cops paying too much attention to racist political leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden. All the Republicans I know want to see AOC re-elected." Ddy

    I suppose the could be foolish Republicans who can't see just how right AOC is on so many issue. Feel better now? :)

    She is just uninformed and outspoken. Most of our ignorant politicians hide it a bit better than AOC. OTOH, her anti-establishment instincts are pretty good.

    AOC is my favorite Democrat politician. Hope the DP doesn't Bernie her.

    Agreed. We entrust peace officers with deadly force and they need to consistently exhibit a higher level of discipline. And AOC is still an anti-American racist bigot hater.

    AOC on House BDS resolution: If we punish nonviolent forms of protest, it might force people into violence

    [​IMG]

    “I would hate to be a part of, you know, paving that kind of path.”

    She's paving the way for claiming we shouldn’t act shocked later when people start, say, vandalizing Israel-linked businesses to express their frustration instead.

    AOC just said that a non-binding resolution stating the House's opposition to the anti-Semitic BDS movement will "force" people into terrorism. Among other things a stunning indictment of the anti-Israel movement -- a Kinsleyan gaffe.

    https://twitter.com/HotlineJosh/status/1153817705918525440 …

    The resolution condemning BDS ended up passing 398-17, with Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, and Ilhan Omar — but not Ayanna Pressley, the fourth member of the Squad and the only one with a real brain, interestingly — voting no. The resolution wasn’t “punitive” towards free speech in any way, not “overly” and not minimally. It suggested no sanction for BDS supporters. It was the legislative equivalent of a thumbs-down emoji. If merely indicating disapproval of BDS is enough to force adherents into “other channels” then they have a major problem.

    Remember, her response to Pelosi’s jabs at the Squad was to wonder if she had a problem with women of color and to note that the four members were receiving death threats. Criticism of Ocasio-Cortez and her causes is perpetually deemed illegitimate at best and dangerous incitement at worst, even when it’s coming from Democrat leaders. Go figure that she’d view a toothless House resolution as potential justification for a terrorist backlash.

    This “don’t criticize me or else” logic wouldn’t fly for her in other contexts, needless to say. If a Trump fan threw a rock through her campaign-office window, she’d be irate if the White House spun it as a regrettable but understandable burst of frustration over the recent House resolution condemning Trump’s “go back where you came from” tweets about the Squad. “If the president can’t express his opposition to their views through nonviolent means without formal disapproval from Congress,” the WH press office might say, “then we can’t be surprised when his fans decide that violent opposition is the only alternative.” That response would itself be condemned, correctly, as de facto incitement, possibly even drawing a second rebuke from the House. But here’s AOC embracing the same thought process for the BDS movement.

    All of the felons that worked for the Comey FBI certainly need to be fired and prosecuted.

    For instance, a ruling declassified this month by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) chronicles nearly 10 pages listing hundreds of violations of the FBI’s privacy-protecting minimization rules that occurred on Comey’s watch.

    The behavior the FBI admitted to a FISA judge just last month ranged from illegally sharing raw intelligence with unauthorized third parties to accessing intercepted attorney-client privileged communications without proper oversight the bureau promised was in place years ago.

    The court also opined aloud that it fears the violations are more extensive than already disclosed. 

    “The Court is nonetheless concerned about the FBI’s apparent disregard of minimization rules and whether the FBI is engaging in similar disclosures of raw Section 702 information that have not been reported,” the April 2017 ruling declared.

    The court isn’t the only oversight body to disclose recent concerns that the FBI’s voluntary system for policing its behavior and self-disclosing mistakes hasn’t been working.”

    Although their thoughts about AOC and the rest of them are no doubt shared by large numbers of Americans, and a majority of police officers, it's an amazingly stupid thing to do, to post them.

    However, wishing that some hated political figure were dead is not the same thing as advocating assassination. If it were the same thing, practically the entire country would be guilty of it, certainly that half who hate Donald Trump.

    As I recall, liberal defense lawyers for the Black Panthers argued in court, when defending various Panther murderers, that their signature slogan, "Off the Pig" was just ghetto rhetoric. So what's sauce for the goose should be sauce for the gander.

    So you want the police to have the same standards as murderers? One group is charged with murder, while one group often uses the defense of feeling threatened when they have killed

    I don't understand your reply. Please elaborate on it, unless my response answers it:

    I believe the police must be professionals. This means that, whatever their personal feelings, they must behave in a certain way -- they must treat everyone alike. These policemen should have kept their thoughts to themselves, just as Hispanic and Black police officers who don't like Donald Trump must do. They didn't, and they have rightly been dismissed from the force.

    However, I do note that people on the Left at the time were highly sympathetic to the Panthers, who openly called for the murder of policemen. And today liberal-oriented history books make heroes of the Panthers. A person who almost certainly helped facilitate a failed escape attempt by a violent criminal that resulted in the murder of a judge is a celebrated speaker at liberal campuses. So I view leftist outrage here as a bit hypocritical.

    If you are a partisan Republican, surely you want her to ascend to Nancy Pelosi's position, and in general for 'the Squad' to become the public face of the Democratic Party.

    Not that it's relevant here, but both AOC and Omar seem to me to be of above-average intelligence for politicians, where admittedly the bar is set low. It's what they believe that needs to be addressed, not their personal qualities. There are plenty of Republican Congressmen and would-be Congressmen or Senators that I would shudder to see made the face of the Republican Party, like this fellow, who doesn't believe in evolution and in his case may be justified in his belief. Although of course after Mr Trump, anything would be preferable.

    I agree, Comey and everyone in the Deep State and the MSM who has violated The Espionage Act should have been charged years ago.

    Do you really think the Deep State is an invention of Hollywood?

    "Unfortunately we’ve forgotten those hard-earned lessons of the 18thcentury. After World War II, we created factions that would ultimately culminate in the Deep State whose components comprise every branch of government and the sub-divisions within it: Departments of State, Homeland Security, Justice, Treasury, NSA, CIA, FBI and all agencies supervised by the executive Branch, among others. In addition, both Houses of Congress and recently the Supreme Court must be considered part of the Deep State."

    People interested in this whole business -- the 'Deep State', what Trump is really guilty of, if anything -- should read this article by a very good scholar of Russia, Stephen Kotkin, in the latest Foreign Affairs. (Which has several other interesting pieces as well.) I don't know if I'm allowed to post the whole thing here, as it's behind a paywall, but if you can get to it, it seems to be a fair-minded summary of the whole issue.

    Actually, the saddest part about that fact is that His Bloated Orangeness' cheerleaders and supporters don't care what trash shows up at his non-stop pep rallies. It's sad and very scary at the same time. I can't help but wonder what kind and how many back-door, or basement, secret (yet well-known) Meetings are held before and after His Bloated Orangeness' "look-at-me-come-worship-me-my-loyal-subjects" pep rallies. It wouldn't surprise me one iota if he supplies the Egyptian cotton Klown Suits for such meetings. I wonder what their favorite flavor of Kool-aide is? Bet it isn't BLACK cherry. We all know His Bloated Orangeness likes His liquid refreshment straight from the source.....the Golden Russian Tap. Ya reckon they, the makers and providers of His Golden Russian Kool-aide , let him cop a grab first? Not that He cares about violating or assaulting any females. He thinks it's His Golden Right to do so. He OPENLY brags about it---while His cheerleaders don't bat a single eye at such disgusting and hedonistic "man talk." That's what scares me. What will it take from His sick, depraved mind and mouth for His cheerleaders to actually pause and go, "wait. What DA FUQUE did He say/do? Uhhhhhhhh, time the **** out." How far is too far with His disciples and subjects? Every single person living under His Reign should be asking themselves, and others next to them at His Kool-aide KlambaKes, that question before it's too late.

    So, D. W. Griffith was working for the FBI while he was looking for that long cool woman in a black dress who had it all?
    No, LM, The Deep State invented the Hollies - not Hollywood. Of course, they are easily confused. ;-)
