Re: “A nation mourns Tree of Life victims while Trump continues to spread hate

Imagine someone in The White House calling an employee, and at full volume no less a "fucking Jew bastard'!
Of course that was Hilary Clinton.
Here we are in high tech heaven but no media outlet ever has a sound and video recording of the supposed outrageous things The President of the United States of America was supposed to have said. They can only tell us in their own words.
Dear media, Go piss up a rope. You are beating the "hate" drum 24 hours a day so let us blame you for this and everything else. Plus let's place a bet on how many things you have lied about concerning Trump in the last year. Every inaccuracy will cost you a million bucks donated to a charity I choose. Name one thing he said that was enough to cause murder and provide the proof . And without looking in a dictionary what is the definition of "nationalist". Colorado Springs Independent- tell us what is "news"?
You know who motivated the synagogue shooting>?Jesus Christ! Now go on the attack and bring this Jesus bastard to his knees and never let me hear another person ever say "It was God's will" about anything, ever again.

Re: “A nation mourns Tree of Life victims while Trump continues to spread hate

Mr. Shirley, you missed the whole point of the column, which is that the president does not care about the victims, even though he did make a show of going to Pittsburgh.

Re: “A nation mourns Tree of Life victims while Trump continues to spread hate

And if the President hadn't gone to Pittsburgh, would you be writing a column on how he didn't care about those who were murdered?

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

"Completely ignoring the fact that Obama, Waters, Hillary, etc have all advocated using intimidation and even violence..."

Way to blame the victims! That is just another Trump lie that served to inflame the mad bomber wannabe and motivate him to send packages to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Maxine Waters, among others.

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

". But Trump is responsible for the language, the anger, the divisiveness, the scapegoating in our country. " - Mike Littwin

Completely ignoring the fact that Obama, Waters, Hillary, etc have all advocated using intimidation and even violence, groups like ANTIFA openly employ such tactics, and that people in the Trump admin have been sent ricin, vandalism against Republican candidates is well documented, as are physical attacks against Trump supporters.

The fact is the divisiness was caused in large part by Obama, not Trump.

And you wonder why people talk about "fake news", Mike Littwin? Take a nice long look in the mirror. It is because of people like you who blame Trump for stuff that your own side has been doing for many years.

Re: “What if the bombs had exploded?

They were too hoax devices. One of them had a goddamn alarm clock from amazon taped to it. No bomb maker would put a clock on a bomb this isnt the movies sweetheart you have been had.

Re: “Kavanaugh said ‘what goes around comes around.’ The midterms could prove him right.

How courteous of Mr. Foster to demonstrate the progressive way of thinking: if someone doesn't agree with you, don't bother discovering their reasons or anything. Just insult them. They probably deserve to be disparaged and dismissed anyway.

did anyone expect anything different with the p@$$y grabber in chief running this "reality show". poor poor old fart white guys... you have had it so tough...

Donnie dumpsterfire and his clan of teabilly nutjobs will stick together no matter what comes out... certainly a sexual assault or two is not going to make a difference to these alternative fact believing, putin, kim jung un and Nazi loving fools.

Re: “Kavanaugh said ‘what goes around comes around.’ The midterms could prove him right.

Great article.

Any thoughtful person knew this vote was along ideological lines and that the confirmation was a sure bet regardless of the dog and pony show televised to the country. And if you look at how senators voted, you'll see it was. Senator Murkowski, a Republican from Alaska, said she "would have" voted "No" but decided not to vote out of respect for another Pub senator who couldn't vote because he was at a wedding (respect?). One Dem, Manchin from West Virginia, voted "Yes." Just enough Dems, one in this case, aided the conservative cause. If they had needed two or three Dems, that would've happened as well.

Yes, there will be an investigation if Dems get the support they need in November. Perhaps we can get this serial sexual assaulter removed, charged, then convicted of his crimes and jailed.

"I'll be voting exclusively Republican..." Most stupid people do, because it relieves them of actually reading - and thinking - about the issues. It must be easy being a conservative...

Re: “Kavanaugh said ‘what goes around comes around.’ The midterms could prove him right.

Mr. Littwin is nothing if not passionate. I'd like to thank him and the Independent for helping me decide my voting this November.

I'll be voting exclusively Republican. I don't see how anyone with reasoning beyond "Dr. Ford said it so it must be gospel" can justify otherwise.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

Liberals don't want kavanaugh. Because he can't answer a question and is hot under the collar Oh and the Federalist connection which the right wing thinks means extreme Constitution. Bots like Nik spreading propaganda about thorough exoneration shows the extent the right goes to make false claims. This cut and paste is everywhere mamakop.

Conservatives have extremely short memories. Except of course for reaching back to the Kennedy's. Conservatives are constantly talking about Soros paying protestors because that is what the GOP does. Not the democrats. Susan Connors voted for Kavanaugh because she need to make sure that her lobbyist husband wouldn't be put out of work. Cult45 will keep mentioning a Hillary Kill list while overlooking the truth of buying SCOTUS seats.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

30 Alarming Statistics That Show The Reality Of Sexual Violence In America

Every 98 seconds someone in the U.S. is sexually assaulted. That means every single day more than 570 people experience sexual violence in this country.

Sexual violence permeates our culture, from violent rape scenes on hit TV shows to sexist dress codes that reinforce rape culture; from famous athletes telling young girls theyre supposed to be silent, to near-daily stories of sexual assaults on college campuses; from a former Olympic doctor accused of sexually abusing more than 100 women, to a President of The United States who has been publicly accused of sexually assaulting more than 15 women and was recorded boasting that he grabs women by the pussy.

All of these examples create a culture that reinforces the normalization of sexual violence.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

Kavanaugh was not exonerated and there will be no further investigations, despite all the bluster, because the administration is still afraid that a proper and thorough investigation will bring to light conclusive evidence against Kavanaugh.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

There are many crucial questions that must still be answered. Kavanaugh has been thoroughly exonerated, but Ford, her team, and Senate Democrats should now come under the microscope. Coordinated smear campaigns destroy innocent lives and undermine our system of government. A CNN analyst said yesterday that this is all "just politics." No, it's a lot more than that. If this was a calculated effort to lie, slander, and perjure which is certainly how it looks then it is not "politics" but a crime, and everyone involved should spend the next several years in a prison cell.

Re: “The day Kavanaugh turned into Trump

Unbalanced yes. The fact is no liberal wishes Judge Kavanaugh to be on the supreme court. People are presumed innocent until proven guilty. If you were accused of a crime you would wish for due process. Then it is said, well this isn't a trial. It is a trial of public opinion used to push an agenda and destroy a man's reputation, without proof. However this comes out, no man should run for office because most likely there is a woman out there that that can destroy your reputation without proof.

I had the same reaction when I was living in Atlanta and Jimmy Carter announced he would run.

Re: “Hickenlooper is now officially thinking of running for president

No way will the current Democratic Party select a governor from a "Hick" flyover state as their nominee in 2020.
