Philosophy, Religion & Society / Re: President Joe Biden
« on: Today at 08:59:23 PM »

So "We need transparency" Republicans really really don't want Hunter Biden's testemony to be public.  Wonder why?

Any insights Tom?

The punchline is that most Republicans can't explain specifically any evidence supporting their narrative. After years of searching, all we keep hearing is 'foreign money from U.S. adversaries' without a molecule of proof. They know how stupid they're going to look when they put Hunter on the stand and it becomes obvious that they have no real evidence.

This is how the Republican party operates now. They launch attacks and worry about reality later. Just like their impeachment of Joe Biden, their first witness "acknowledged that the evidence Republicans had gathered so far, however, doesn't prove their case."

The media, in fact, has been going on for weeks about how Cohen was supposed to be the prosecution's "star witness" -
I'll leave Cohen's star witness status to be decided by a court of law rather than the court of public opinion.

Please try to understand that the judge already determined that there was enough evidence to find Trump guilty of fraud even before Cohen took the stand.

Actually, they had plenty of ammo without Cohen. They only put Cohen up at that specific time to rattle Trump prior to his testimony.

Trump's lawyers are idiots and the prosecutors are playing him the same same way Putin did.

Look guys.
Tom is gonna say 'i told you so' if Powell has nothing.
If Powell has damning testemony, he'll dismiss it as fake or lies or whatever.

Actually, what Tom and the Maganoids don't understand is that Kraken Lady ALREADY testified on video. If she changes her testimony on the stand at this point, the video of her proffer will still be shown in evidence and she will be facing all the original felonies.

As traitors go, Ellis is very different than Kraken Lady in that she seems genuinely remorseful and understands what a dumbass she was for believing anything from the Trump people.

There are plenty of alternative theories to the one you propose -

You are trying to tell us what other people are thinking, who you do not know.

That article and its comments section is absolutely hideous. It's utter Trump spin, albeit an order of magnitude in quality above his idiot lawyers. Heavily armed rednecks posting life and death support to Kraken lady, whose manifesto centers around Hugo Chavez and software from Argentina, needs to be a wake up call to every American. Anyone who understands that professional wrestling is not a competitive sport and will never be in the Olympics needs to get together and outvote this stupidity for the good of humanity.

EDIT: Oh, but to credit Tom's post, we really have no idea what these freaks are thinking.

If it was an agreement to flip on trump you might have something. However, it is not. It an agreement to truthfully testify, which could have been given out of a number of reasons, such as desperation.

According to the left the walls have been closing in on Trump for 9 years now, for a wide range of crimes which are totally provable in court but somehow falls apart. Surely, you have him now.  ::)

Wake up. The 'truth' is already on a tape that Kraken bitch recorded.
Just like Nixon, it took a decade for the truth to fully come out.

Maybe she is intending to testify. I still don't see anything substantial suggesting that she has flipped on Trump, however. The agreement is for her to testify truthfully. There could be a number of reasons that agreement was given. Maybe they initially overcharged her and gave her this standard truth agreement as a hail mary. Sidney Powell is certainly not acting like she flipped on Trump, judging by her continuous attacks on the prosecutors after this agreement -

"Sidney Powell pushes claims that 2020 election was rigged and prosecutors 'extorted' her after she pleaded guilty to election interference"


"On her social-media accounts, Powell has continued to push claims that the 2020 election was rigged and that prosecutors in Georgia who brought the criminal case against her were politically motivated."


"Powell's newsletter promoted a claim that Willis 'extorted' her guilty plea"


"Since her guilty plea, the newsletters have urged her followers to "hold fast." They told supporters to read and share articles and YouTube videos that argue her guilty plea was 'extorted' and amounted to a blow to Willis, the Fulton County district attorney."


"Powell's followers were directed to the same Federalist article again in her Monday newsletter. It also cited an Epoch Times article quoting Trump's attorney Steve Sadow, who said Powell pleaded guilty only because of 'pressure' from Willis."


"Ronald Carlson, a professor at the University of Georgia School of Law, told Insider that Powell's comments were unusual for a cooperating witness who was likely to be asked to testify on behalf of the prosecution at a trial.

'Usually, after a guilty plea, the defendants do not want to rock the boat,' Carlson said."

Dude, she's already turned on Trump. In the plea process she gives a 'proffer', in this case a video testimony of what she will say at trial. What she recorded is so devastating to Trump that the prosecutors reduced her felonies to misdemeanors. If her testimony in court is different than her videoed proffer, then she will be guilty of felonies and go to prison for years.

I can understand an idiot believing the earth is flat because it simply looks flat. But anyone who still believes anything Trump says after all of this is a special kind of transcendental stupid.

Did you read any of the cherry picked quotes which I am deliberately misrepresenting or wilfully misunderstanding?
Fixed your post.

Where is your evidence that it is being misrepresented? The only evidence you have provided is your own understanding from popular culture on what a prosecutor is.

Dude, listen to someone who has seen prosecutors up close. You don't know what you're talking about.
Conservatives are saying absolutely stupid and ridiculous things trying to defend Trump but if anyone points out any of the ignorant, shitty things Trump has done and said it's all "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

Even the most dim-witted MAGA bumpkin has to wonder at this point, "Why when a Democrat wins, the system is rigged but when Republicans win, the people have spoken?"

Tom's post is simply an example of the desperate MAGA babble trying to make Trump look like a victim. It's what they do.

Plea deals happen everyday.
These are not defendants with the presumption of innocence, they are convicts who have pled guilty and the only question is of what is appropriate punishment. The punishment will depend on them telling the truth and they have to convince the prosecutors they have some truth worth telling. If the truth is juicy enough, the prosecutors will give the guilty a break in punishment for testifying in court. If the guilty does not tell the truth on the stand that they told the prosecutors, the deal is cancelled and the dumb-ass kraken bitch is guilty of a half dozen felonies instead of misdemeanors.

There's nothing that challenges the Constitution or anything conspiratorial about plea deals. I know lots of people who've been arrested.

Looks like another half dozen rats might be getting ready to jump ship.

At this rate, Trump will be the only one on trial.


The thing is that only the first few rats get the sweet deal. Once prosecutors have enough evidence to seal the case, the rest of the rats are out of luck. But it's OK, I'm sure Trump will supply bail money and lawyers to help out all of his incarcerated supporters who ignorantly destroyed their lives by being part of his stupid plan helping Putin to overthrow our government.

And another pleads guilty.

Weird.  You'd think all these lawyers wouldn't need to do that if what they did was perfectly legal and the election was stolen.

They're like rats fleeing a sinking ship. Of course, Trump's reaction is to call them rats and throw them off the ship.

Keep in mind, this is just one of a number of sinking ships in Trump's fleet each with a similar rat drama unfolding.

That being said, I think it's far too early to be celebrating over this. This wouldn't be the first time - or even the second time - that someone was convicted for being an accessory or accomplice to one of Trump's crimes while Trump himself walked free. There's something deeply paradoxical about that, but it's the reality.

Nixon all over again...

Kraken lady has all kinds of emails, documents and testimony involving Trump. Trump's lawyers are saying they welcome the 'truth' because that's what's lawyers say.

His lawyers are bottom of the barrel legal idiots but they know what's coming.

It just says that she agreed to give "truthful testimony" in future hearings. Unless I am missing something, you are already required to give "truthful testimony" in court hearings.

As part of her sentence, she also agreed to provide a written letter of apology to the people of Georgia and give "truthful testimony" at any future hearings and trials relating to other defendants.

The reason that traitorous, lying, bat-shit-crazy bitch got misdemeanors instead of what she really deserved is because she agreed to burn Trump. It's so awesome to see a former Trumpian turn on Trump the way he turned all his idiotic, radicalized followers rotting in jail.

She's going to have to come to terms with the fact that there was no 'kraken' and all crap swirling in her diseased mind was just bullshit she just imagined.

BTW, yes, you are always required to give truthful testimony. But in this situation, the plea bargainer is reminded of their responsibilities to fulfill the conditions of the plea deal.

...  and she's a lying sack of shit that has never told the truth about anything so it doesn't hurt to remind her.

The Trumpians are just deluding themselves with this stupid shit. Their leaders know it's bullshit but it brings in the money.
All these years and these idiots still haven't produced one molecule of evidence to support their claims.

No, by which I mean your endless trope about "shoputing fire in a crowded movie theatre," is useless here as nothing of the sort occurred.

He's right!

This is about federal counts of conspiracy, violations of the Espionage act, falsifying business records and state-level racketeering indictments. None of which is protected speech.

Freedom of speech doesn’t mean you can say anything you like in any situation. It’s a common misconception, that.
And here come the meaningless cliches...

Here's a meaningless cliche from Bill Barr, Trumps corrupt, Putin sucking, attorney general traitor that has now turned on Trump like the piece of rat shit that he is...

"All conspiracies involve speech, and all fraud involves speech. So, free speech doesn't give you the right to engage in a fraudulent conspiracy."

It is a feature of the willfully ignorant that they will reject any evidence that goes against their beliefs. There are people that work on nuclear weapons, there are astronauts that have orbited the earth but the willful ingnoids whose delusions are threatened these people simply brand them as liars.

Truthfully, I wouldn't care if these idiots didn't believe the earth is round or if nukes exist. The smugness wrapping their absolute stupidity is very entertaining. They'll never know how idiotic they are to those of us who who have to deal with reality. The danger they pose is when their soft mushy minds are used by people like Trump or Putin. Let's face it, if you can't even understand the basic geography of this planet, you're going to be fodder for cult leaders, despots, late night infomercials and internet banner ads. Have your credit card standing by!

I do wonder, metaphysically, if in our death, we do see some level of truth in the beyond. I imagine the soul of a flat earther leaving their body and being exposed to the nature of truth around them. As their disembodied soul soars over the stars and planets, will they still curse and insist it's all a liberal hoax?

If Rushy was blown up by a nuclear weapon, would there be a moment of enlightenment where all dimensions of the past and future are visible. Would he see the bomb being built and deployed? Would the story of what really killed him enter his awareness?

lol, Imagine the afterlife, Jesus trying to explain to Rushy that he was blown up by a nuclear weapon.

Aside from the papers being legitimately located at Mar-a-Lago for many reasons, including a President ordering them to be there, there were no boxes of classified documents in the bathroom. They found the classified papers in the basement storage room.

It was later claimed that more classified documents were found in Trump's office area, but it is unclear how secure that was. Presumably the Secret Service would design it to be secure for sensitive papers to go between the basement and the president's/former president's office. It was not the bathroom where documents were found. So, you were lied to and your argument is based on lies.

It's all good. The Republicans want their President to have unilateral control over sensitive documents with no oversight.

Even if they were in a bathroom, it's ok. Mar-a-lago is a very secure place.

We could let the Donald off as an ignorant buffoon when it comes to the whole document incident. Maybe, the fact that he's a traitorous piece of shit that allied himself with every one of our national adversaries and the fact that he left sensitive documents vulnerable like an idiot is just a coincidence.
