Revelations

Postby KeithE » Sat Jan 27, 2018 8:54 am

Most every day now, there are new revelations of (1) obstruction of justice by Trump, (2) abuse of power by Trump, (3) past lewd behavior by Trump, and/or (4) some form of cooperation between the Trump campaign and Russia continue. And virtually every day, Trump continues to tell lies, exaggerates, and/or misleads Americans. Yesterday at Davos Trump Mixes Facts With Fiction - read it, there are 7 fictions explained. It used to be that any misrepresentation by a President would be pounced on very hard by the press until the truth be known by all who cared and shame be levied on the perpetrator. In Trump’s case, the press and its readership cannot keep up with his lies, exaggerations, misleads. We are in overload. That is his tactic.

Most every day now, there are new revelations of (1) obstruction of justice by Clinton, justice, and FBI (2) abuse of power by FBI, (3) past lewd behavior by Clinton associates, and/or (4) some form of cooperation between the Clinton campaign and Russia continue. And virtually every day, Democrats continue to tell lies, exaggerates, and/or misleads Americans. In all but Trump’s case, the press will ignore and its readership will be uninformed with his lies, exaggerations, misleads. We are in overload. That is their tactic.

Hey, we gotta guy working on it. Let's see what he says. It's all politics and a refusal to accept election results but...my anti-Trump friends can always keep hope.

:lol:
William, I'd love to hear one of your sermons. If you can put that much wild imagination, irrelevance and fantasy into a single paragraph here, I can only imagine what your preaching was like. You must have had 'em rolling in the aisles.

Is there an extremist right wing media source out there for sermon material, like the same sort of thing where you got all of this material?

In the best sermonic tradition I merely copied and pasted Keith's with a few substitutions.

I think I'll stick to timeless scripture when preaching.

The degree and scope of Trump’s legal/ethical issues far exceed that by Bill or Hillary Clinton.
(1) Obstruction of justice: I see you had to add “justice (DOJ?) and FBI” to Clinton so that there would be any case at all (and a weak one at that) comparable to what Trump has done in the lane of obstruction of justice.
(2) Abuse of Power: It is true that in FBI history especially in the J Edgar Hoover days has had many abuses of power. But no President has abused power like Trump has. e.g. Trump abuses power in using public funds for private benefit
(3) Lewd Behavior: Who knows who has had more lewd behavior Clinton or Trump (but Trump has not yet been impeached or charged legally for any of his and we have admissions on tape for Trump - Trump needs a good impeachment and day in court for admitted (or bragging) sex harassment).
(4) Hidden Russian Cooperation: You'll have to come up with some Clinton / Russian hidden cooperation that is not already in the open.

As for lying Trump is orders of magnitude worse. Over 2000 lies since in office.

And when does someone else's bad behavior ever serve as a basis to bypass justice for another offender?!

You’re defense of this President is beyond my comprehension.
