Sooooooo....are the liberals and Democrats willing to admit to being wrong?
“As it begins to wrap up its investigation, the Senate Intelligence Committee has not found “any direct evidence” that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians during the 2016 presidential election, according to a report on Tuesday.
“After two years and interviewing more than 200 witnesses, the Senate intelligence Committee has not uncovered any direct evidence of a conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia,” NBC correspondent Ken Dilanian told MSNBC anchor Hallie Jackson.
She appeared stunned by the revelation.”

The senate minority leader disagreed with the majority leader, Mike. Did you neglect to mention this or was it on purpose?
The Republican head of the Senate Intelligence Committee thinks his Republican boss is innocent.
Fortunately, his claims are just in time for the start of Trump's campaign to get himself re-elected next year.
Randy, I'm disappointed you don't agree with him.
Promisen, haven't heard from you for awhile...hope all is well.
And I'd like to add, Trump's reelection campaign has been churning for over a year.
Thank you, Mike. I hope you are well too.
I was referring to Trump's campaign kickoff speech in El Paso.

Go figure. The Republican disagrees with the Democrat!
Shocking, isn't it? Why can't we all just get along and work together for a better country?
Probably because the internet creates an illusion of majority and consensus, politicians play to the most they think they can garner a vote from.
This climate has escalated exponentially because of social media.
More and more the web (not just social media, but the vast majority of everything posted) reminds me of the snake oil salesmen of the old west. Preying on the naive, the trusting, they went forth with lies and "spin" to convince others that a falsehood was true.
And we're seeing the same thing today - we haven't learned that everything we see is only part of the picture, or simply an outright lie. We trust, and it isn't working. The web is, or could be, the most valuable resource ever created in the history of mankind, but when it is used as a propaganda tool more than an information source we do ourselves a great disservice.
I agree. Extremists and special interests on both sides have used social media to inflame differences.
Compromise is nearly gone as a result. But at least we all compromise on these forums.
We all compromise on the forums? Did Randy get the memo?
"I agree. Extremists and special interests on both sides have used social media to inflame differences."
Not to mention our groundbreaking Twitter President, who uses social media to divide, inflame, and promote lies.
Way to make clear that compromise isn't your forte.
Huh? How did you get that from my comment?
Your last statement, blaming Trump. Trump didn't start the problem, he tapped into it. He's to blame for a lot, but only commenting on him with every negative post (you guys know who you are) it pushes the divide. By not making clear that all sides have their share of instigators.
Trump is bad. No worse than Hillary with her lies. Not as bad as Maxine Waters with her attempts to fan the flames of incivility and unrest.
I could go on. But blaming Trump at every turn, and only Trump, sets the stage for the other side to accept you turn a blind eye to other agitators.
I was responding to this comment: "Extremists and special interests on both sides have used social media to inflame differences."
I suppose we could pretend only extremists and special interests sow division on social media, but that would be ignoring the elephant in the room, which is that the President of the United States uses social media, in an unprecedented and pervasive manner, to lie, malign, and inflame. You can pretend this divisive behavior coming from the top has no effect on the country if you want but you would be denying the truth. I did not "blame" Trump, but I found the statement that extremists do it to be a blatant omission of the obvious.
LOL. Only Trump. That is too rich. Self imposed blinders. Enough said.
Where did I say only Trump? Just like falsely saying I blamed Trump, you are determined to rewrite what I say to make it easier to argue against. Either show where I said Trump was to blame, and only Trump, or admit you made it up.
Did you name anyone else? Do you ever name anyone else? That's the point pp.
It's like a broken record. Trump, Trump, Trump. Any time anything is pointed out that is wrong in the world you come along and point out your dislike for Trump.
Trust me. Anyone listening gets it. Even if you don't.
Lol, you've lost it. "Trust me"? Now, that's a substantive response.
So, don't trust me. Better? Either way, your not trusting me doesn't fix the broken record.
So, apparently you haven't noticed that l go for days on end posting on the forums about nothing to do with Trump, but the minute I do, there you are swooping in to tell me I'm wearing blinders (your favorite) or some variation thereof.
You, lady, are the broken record. And it's pretty damned funny. ;-)
So we both get to laugh. How great is that?
Just so you know, I don't follow your comments. I respond when you comment on threads I'm in, if I see them. If you want me to see every thing you write you'll have to email them or something. I'm not interested enough to follow you.
Geez, Loueez, of course you don't follow my comments, but you do choose to respond to a certain kind of comment of mine with the same accusation.
Oh, well, how about this. Every time I post something negative about Trump, I'll just add that LtL thinks I'm wearing blinders and that will save you the trouble. Enjoy your free time.
Woo hoo!!! I've got an extra five minutes each month. Whatever will I do?
Lol. I don't get the local news. I do like that guy Gutfield. I've seen him on YouTube. He's quite funny.
I know. I know. You guys on the left don't have a sense of humor you're aware of. You apparently don't have a sense of humor those on the right are aware of either.
I don't have a sense of humor any time a cretin is ruining the country, LTL. And you know nothing about any of us having a sense of humor on the left, unless you're psycho.....er….I mean psychic.
I believe because there's little agreement on what makes a "better" country, or at least where thrre's agreement on that, there's not much agreement et mentioned on how to get there. We're looking at an unbridgeable divide.
If we are looking an an "unbridgeable divide", then the future is bleak.
Our Founding Fathers created a Constitution that included compromise as a core principle. If no one is willing to compromise, then nothing will get done.
No one could have conceived of how divided this country has become. The only other time, arguably, it was divided this way was during the years just before and during the Civil War. Not making predictions, but things do not look good for the US.
The deep state is alive and well...

Unfortunately, there is no right or wrong in the game of politics. As long as your actions can irritate your opponents and rile up your base, your doing "good" by political standards.
As the Senate Intelligence Committee wrapped up their investigation and concluded that there was no direct evidence of collusion — guess what? Now the House Intelligence Committee is going to be restarting their own investigation.
Truth, facts, common sense — they have no driving role in the game of politics.
I believe if they investigated the Hillary Clinton campaign with the same determination....the findings of collusion with Russia would be very different.
That's right, Mike? She was never investigated at all. No money was spent on the investigation either! Did I miss anything else from Fox?
Doesn't really matter. To the left, this will be like the birther argument was to the far right. No amount of evidence will make them believe anything but what they want to believe.
Thank you for speaking for us on the left, LTL. Now I'll do the same for you as I'm sure you won't mind.
It does matter. To the right, this will be no evidence of Hillary's crimes. No amount of evidence will convince them she was innocent.
Cool! This is fun. We can simply say what the other is afraid to, LTL. You're as smart--well not actually--as Jack thinks he is!
To answer the question posed...No, never.
For leftists, some things are worth keeping alive, no matter what it takes!
Thanks Grace, Scott and Randy aren't of the same opinion!
No, that's not what I typed.
I teasingly suggested the right doesn't keep some things alive, "no matter what it takes". I did it because you made a sweeping generalization about the left.
People who make sweeping generalizations about the right and left are part of what's wrong with this country.
Thank you Promisem, nothing is ever in strict dichotomies but there are always infinite variations.
But not the right. They would never act that way.
No I don’t agree with that statement Promise. The right also focuses on things worth keeping alive, no matter what it takes.
So the left is all bad and the right is all good? In that case, if we must protect the purity of the right, we should:
1. Strip the left of citizenship or;
2. Put them in concentration camps or;
3. Expel them from the country.
"No matter what it takes."
Then please clarify what you mean by your comment about the left and "no matter what it takes".
Not much to clarify. Questioned asked. Questioned answered.
What a great response…..if you're a Trumpster. Absolutely no answer.
There’s a question on the table, “Are the liberals and Dems willing to admit to being wrong”?
My response, no never. Ya’ll are proving me right, right here, right now.
Am I wrong? Are there not things that the left seeks to keep alive and others things they don’t give a darn about keeping alive and the same could be said of the right?
Randy is a lost cause. He is so far gone, it will take a hurricane to extract him from the hole he dug for himself.
TDS has casualties.
Because you don't like what I say......means I'm saying the right things. Keep on disliking it..
Keep saying what you're saying Randy. It brings me joy in ways you may not understand.
I understand all Trump devotees, Mike. They are exactly like their idol, especially his ability to be honest. Congrats!
Another bit of brilliance. i'm sure you have more where this came from. Keep 'em coming. You're the best!
My favorite one is from Mark Twain “Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.”
No because you are hopelessly biased.
Here is a simple test.
If you read the transcript of the SOTU speech, you would be cheering.
Because of the Trump name, you are against it.
How does that make any sense?
Saw the stupid speech, Jack. Trump's a moron and nothing you can say will change that.
So 76% of Americans are wrong and you are right?
You, me, and now credence are all blind. Apparently, liberals who believe their own eyes and ears need glasses. I'm surprised we haven't been called "deaf," too. Weird.
https://hubpages.com/politics/forum/342 … ost4062281
You can certainly accuse me of blind bias but, I challenge you to review comments on these forums. All in all I'd wager money I have shown more variety on stands than you have, and more willingness to give the benefit of doubt until more information is available.
I'm pleased you admit to the right doing the same..
That's TWO big hoaxes completely obliterated here, in the year of our lord, 2019
. 1. The international lugenpresse, anti-white, anti-Christian, and anti-American slandered a child, many journalist calling for violence against him, and his school. And why? Because he stood and smiled peacefully in the face of some Native American idiot doing some moronic crap in his face with a drum.
2. Of course the Russian conspiracy thing was completely made up. The establishment couldn't stand to lose. But globalism is over. Mass migration is OVER. Let the right wing across America, and Europe rise. Amen.
Further, the persons who own the international lugenpresse continue to lose credibility, right along with their precious EU, and their precious Democrat party. I smell the death of the EU and the Democrat party. Smellls sweet.
Here's a list of conservative comedians, to sprinkle on your pretend parade.
https://www.ranker.com/list/best-conser … ker-comedy
I've heard of some of them, especially the dead ones.
Now, now, you can't laugh. We have no sense of humor, remember? Lol
You did realize multiple smiley faces is not proof of humor.
I don't know much about this Branco fellow(?) that does these funny political cartoons, shared here by Mike, but I'd say he has a great sense of humor!
It's only a guess, but I think it is safe to say that he (or she) is conservative.
I personally haven't found anyone on late night television funny since Carson and Leno.... of course, this opinion is based on bits and pieces of their shtick...I am not actually awake past 9:30.
