A Different Perspective

Sharyl Attkisson in this clip proposes that the problem was not Trump but the FISA abuses by the Intel communicated that caused the scare. They wanted what was hidden to remain hidden.

I was surprised at the end of the video the willingness of Mike Huckabee to promote another network’s news show.

What do you think?

  1. Attkisson is a treasure but also a nearly extinct breed of journalist who goes where the facts lead, independent of the narrative or preconceived ideas. The only others who come close are alternative media folks like Tim Pool who have no formal journalistic credentials. Attkisson is unique (or nearly so) in that her background is from the legacy media, where she was highly regarded until she stepped out of line, or more accurately, until the legacy media became even more dishonest than they had been.

    She has undoubtedly has paid a high price for having taken this path. Her reporting is available on her YouTube channel.

  2. I’m just going to call it as I see it.

    There is no Trump collusion and I know this because I always think first and foremost about agendae. HRC as SoS approved 20% of American uranium ore to be sold to the Russians and coincidentally, the Clinton Foundation rcvd a $50 million dollar contribution a month later.

    Why would Putin want a hard-ass like Trump to win? The answer is that he didn’t but he is KGB and knows exactly how to distract that presidency and its goals with a false narrative. That is what he did for a living during his tenure in the USSR.

    The American people should be embarrassed at their naïveté.

    Putin thought that the election was rigged for Hillary.   His intelligence apparatus was listening in on all the smart people in Washington, and they all believed there was no way Hillary could lose.

    Putin’s minions promoted Trump as a way of damaging Hillary and trimming her coattails so she would have more dissent from within Congress.

    We had a narrow escape.

    Now it is time to bring the Deep State to justice.

    It is the height of projection for A. Schiff to accuse Team Trump of “weaponizing law enforcement agencies.”   What Team Trump is getting ready to do is to expose the extent to which Team Obama had weaponized law enforcement agencies.

    I heard three separate people, in three separate segments on NPR, all during a half-hour drive this afternoon, say that they feared “selective” disclosure of classified materials related to the initiation of the investigations into Team Trump.   “Selective,” “selective,” “selective.”   That is the latest talking point; it is a preemptive strike in an attempt to discredit the sunlight that is getting ready to shine.

    I don’t believe that; Hillary could be easily bought and paid for. That’s why I always like voting for independently rich people- Perot, Romney, Trump.

    Hillary was willing to do small favors for big cash, but I think it is in Putin’s interest, and Russia’s, for the American President to be weak on account of strong opposition at home.   Putin likes to see Americans at each others’ throats.

    That is why the Russian trolls on social media promote extremes on both ends of the political spectrum and promote extremists of all sorts of activist groups.

    Small favor?!!! 20% of our uranium ore supply sold to an enemy when we have to import due to a shortage? She committed treason.

  8. If we want a better media, we need to laud and applaud the handful of actual journos who dug the story, reported on it and kept going despite the pressure to stop.

    We need to make then rich and famous, so all new journos want to be them.

    Yes.

    None is more deserving than theFederalist.   Margot Cleveland has parsed testimonies and exposed conflicts, while Mollie Z. Hemingway has been the sharpest of media critics, exposing their hypocrisies, insider dealing and many falsehoods.

    I want heads. On pikes.

    Do you have enough pikes?

    No problem … like this:

    but with heads instead of bell peppers and tofu and stuff.

    Ace, I thought you said these people weren’t  worth your spit. What changed?

    Always with the puns, 1o cents. What better way for heads to roll than on a spit over an infernally hot bed of mesquite briquettes. Then, I invite over the neighbors — the ones who are Democrats — for a celebratory meal.
