Thread: Cummings telegraphs to the press

  1. #1

    Cummings telegraphs to the press

    Elijah Cummings gave an impromptu press briefing following his meeting with the special counsel Mueller, and said the following (I doubt there is a link or video to this since it's pretty new news):

    "If there is any moment that the press, in our country's history, has a major role, it is this moment. This is your moment. You have got to put it out there, so people can understand what is going on. I have said it before, and I'll say it again, this is about the fight for the soul of our democracy. We cannot afford to lose this one."

    This, IN MY OPINION, is Cummings telling the press to go full-on onslaught against Trump. What does he mean "we cannot afford to lose this one"? Although Cummings has stated they aren't there yet for impeachment, it's what they (democrats) ultimately want.

    Make no doubt about it, they are going to step it up. Get ready for some very ugly few weeks.

    Cummings is front man for the resistance. He is stupid enough to say anything and they are using him.

    I take it more as "this is our chance to bring down a guy we hate, media don't screw this up"

    It'd be a major black eye if all these anonymous sources were fake and all but guarantee a horrible showing for the Dems during midterm elections.

    Democrat Camila Page [professor of media studies at the University of the Arts] stated the press is all but guaranteeing a Trump Election in 2020
    colluding with the Democrats and creating all this hype and rage for the sake of hype and rage
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Starting to see glimmers of comments to the effect that some of them "get" that, too. Not the stump-stupid old goats like Cummings, or Waters, but some of them nonetheless.

    If they are fake and the authors THEMSELVES come out and say so - there are still those on the left who won't change their minds about it.
    We still have people who believe in the Loch Ness monster and there are shows about Bigfoot - even though MANY fakes have been exposed.
    Heck, the most famous pic of Nessie was revealed BY THE MAN WHO TOOK THE PIC to be a fake - and people believe it.

    A version of "invincible ignorance".

It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.".Daniel Webster

    There will always be people like that. There's people that believe in these "false flag" events like 9/11 and Sandy Hook.

    Luckily, they aren't a majority enough to make a difference

    Politics

    Paglia characterizes herself as a libertarian.[55][62] She opposes laws against prostitution, pornography, drugs, and abortion, and is also opposed to affirmative action laws.[63][64] Some of her views have been characterized as conservative.[8] Paglia criticized Bill Clinton for not resigning after the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which she says "paralyzed the government for two years, leading directly to our blindsiding by 9/11".[65] In the 2000 U.S. presidential campaign she voted for the Green Party candidate Ralph Nader, "[because] I detest the arrogant, corrupt superstructure of the Democratic Party, with which I remain stubbornly registered."[65]

    In the 2004 U.S. presidential election, Paglia supported John Kerry; and in 2008, she supported Barack Obama.[66] In 2012, she supported Green Party candidate Jill Stein.[67] Paglia was highly critical of 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, calling her a "fraud" and a "liar".[68] Paglia refused to support either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, indicating in a March Salon.com column that if Hillary Clinton won the Democratic Party's nomination she would either cast a write-in vote for Bernie Sanders or else vote for Green Party candidate Stein, as she did in 2012.[69] Paglia later clarified in a statement that she would vote for Stein.[70]

    Cool, but I assumed she was a real person.

    I was being facetious in asking of there really was a school named "University of the Arts".

    What does he mean "we cannot afford to lose this one"?
    Umm...what words didn't you understand? What part of what is going on don't you get??? Here let me wrap this up in a little bow for you...

    all 17 intelligence agencies signed off that they believe the Russian govt interfered in our Presidential election. No dumbass, that does NOT mean they stuffed the ballot box. It means they used fake info to influence teeny tiny little minds (3/4 of the people on here still think Hillary Clinton has parkinsons)

    ...the way things LOOK, the way the President in ACTING...isn't that of an innocent person or a person who thinks those around him are innocent.

    So...what Mr. Cummings meant...since you can't understand English...is that we know the Russians exerted influence over our election...and the President or his staff MAY have helped...THAT is a threat to our democracy. THE details of what happened MUST be understood...the Russian thing MUST NOT be allowed to occur in the future (although how that happens with such teeny tiny little minds infecting our electorate is beyond me)...IF (understand what that means...morons)...IF the current President or his staff helped the Russians...then people need to go...and some of them may need to go to jail.

    Do you understand yet?? Do you get it? You voted for Trump...the guy may have cheated...isn't that something you should WANT to know and understand??? You people go nuts over an under inflated football...but you don't care if a guy may have cheated to win the Presidency?? Is that a lesson you want to teach your kids? "It's ok to cheat Johhny...just don't get caught."

    Get ready for some very ugly few weeks.
    One way or another that now has to be....Trump (no one else, TRUMP) forced this hand and the appointment of the special counsel...his idiotic firing of Comey and his asinine comments proclaimed he did it because of the Russian investigation left no choice. If you had any brains...any at all...you would clearly see that. HE backed Rosenstein into a corner...not the media...not "snowflakes"...as has been the case for roughly 120 days...Trump has been his one worst enemy.
