I love it.. always blame it on the hippies. LMAONovember 8, 2023 at 4:48 am #230254
Wolfheathen: I know you were being kind. And I too had to giggle at “OT/Wankery’. But I think you missed Caroline’s point completely. She wasn’t complaining about cryptid content. And she didn’t mention the propaganda. Nor did she say ‘These forums stank’. Re-read her only statement. It seems clear to me.
Cyndie – No interpreter needed. Just to be clear for “giggles,” as you say, the word “Propaganda” is your thinly veiled choice not her words. Most people here are intelligent and quite capable of reading and comprehending what they read. Her opening salvo was not a friendly hello everybody but an insult to everybody specifically and apparently directed only to those who do not agree with your truths. ~GumshoguyOctober 14, 2023 at 3:34 pm #229317
Page 9 of the unredacted flight logs of Jeff Epstein contains the name Donald Trump. Sure, it could be a coincidence but then you would have to believe in coincidences.September 29, 2023 at 2:32 pm #228881
Are you aware that Tucker Carlson himself claims that his dog and pony show is and always has been complete satire and that his antics amount to nothing more than him bloviating for his audience?? Do you know that while under oath, tucker surmised, that even when he makes claims that he is giving undisputed facts, no reasonable person, (especially his regular viewers) would believe that he is actually providing facts? Did you know that Fox’s lawyer’s successfully argued in an moi court given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer arrives with an appropriate amount of skepticism about the statements he makes.”
The judge said given the “general tenor” of his show, it should inform a viewer that he is not “stating actual facts” about the topics he discusses and is instead engaging in “exaggeration” and “non-literal commentary.” … Given Mr. Carlson’s reputation, any reasonable viewer ‘arrive[s] with an appropriate amount of skepticism’ …about the statements he makes.
In other words, “any reasonable viewer” doesn’t actually believe what Tucker Carlson is saying to be true. It is therefore unreasonable to take what Tucker Carlson says as truth. Its the same with Fox. Right? Remember they officially added the ‘Entertainment’ portion to their name and removed the word ‘News’
lest any person in their right mind believe the information they provide is actual news or truth. Never mind they recently settled the largest defamation lawsuit in the history of the united states because they perpetuated lies and mistruths about the voting machines etc. etc. etc. You literally cannot believe anything fox Entertainment is claiming.
Its the same with the Gateway Pundit…right?, Sean Hannity…. the Blaze…Breitbart…These are all organizations which are known to provide false narratives. Whether people enjoy them for entertainment value or not is irrelevant. Everyday citizens are soaking up their stories as if they are facts. Even though the sources, themselves, are claiming their information is false and should not be believed as factual. People listen to their programs and believe they are getting the truth. It is a real problem. I notice many of the people in this forum rely heavily upon all the bad apples for their source citing. Again in general it is a real problem.
As to your specifics:
I agree migration should be regulated. and there is no doubt migration over time will help to shape our culture. I dont view that as a negative thing necessarily. But your claim that migrants are bankrupting our economy is false. According to an analysis of 2019 (ACS) data by the New American Economy, immigrants (14 percent of the U.S. population) wield $1.3 trillion in spending power. 19 In some of the largest state economies the contributions of immigrants are substantial. power is $105 billion. Even the undocumented workers are paying into our economy handsomely. and without documentation they are unable to pull it back out. That is not to say they dont claim any benefits, but they are hardly “bankrupting our economy”.
I agree 100% that everybody can make up their own mind whether to get vaccinated or not. That includes businesses who want their employees to be vaccinated and or wear a mask. You have the right to look for another job if you don’t like your employers position.
There I managed to find a couple of things we can agree on.September 4, 2023 at 12:07 pm #227202
CJM you said “I mean the whole reason for the suits is to shut them up right?”. I think you are right. The whole reason is stop the widespread disinformation campaigns and gaslighting which is harming our country. The goal would be to silence those who are knowingly making false accusations, pushing baseless conspiracy theories and spewing hateful rhetoric. However, for those who are speaking truth to fact and have evidence which actually relates to the topic, nothing should silence them, and nothing could negate their message.August 28, 2023 at 5:44 am #226917
Wolf you said of Trump: “knowing the election was going to be stolen from him accepted the inevitable was coming”. And I do recall Trump starting to groom his base even before the 2016 election stating that if he didn’t win the only reason could be because the election had been stolen from him. And then he won. He never mentioned it again until the 2020 elections were approaching. Then he starts priming his base again claiming the only way possible he could lose would be if it was stolen from him. Trump was so busy during his time in office. He was getting rid everything Obama. He was hiring all the best of people. He was stacking the courts. He was attacking the media. He was visiting dictators and snubbing allies. etc. etc. Since you seem to know so much about Trump and how he felt and why he did or did not do certain things, could you please explain why he didn’t focus on the security of our elections at all during the years when he was in charge? I mean he was in a position to really make it a priority for our nation. He was laser focused into all the different ways it could have happened and yet never fixed any of it during his presidency. In fact, as far as I can remember he never even mentioned any of it outside the times when it was his main excuse for not winning the presidential elections.August 24, 2023 at 3:06 pm #226785

Pam, you have a show? I don’t frequent SC like I used to. If you announced it, I apologize. I missed it. Where? When? I’m very interested.August 20, 2023 at 5:43 pm #226626
How insecure you must be to bother posting countless pictures of the obama’s and suggesting they are gay or transgendered or reptilian? What if you right on all counts? What if he is gay? What is it to you? He is an adult. He can be what he wants to be. WTF do you care? Don’t you have anything better to do? What if Michelle is transgendered? What if there are no pictures of her pregnant? So what? Really? Seriously? They are consenting adults. If you don’t approve, too bad. Try living your own life and quit judging others. Why aren’t you worried about thousands of catholic preachers and other religious zealots who are really harming our youth? (and have been grooming and seducing our children for decades). No, you are worried about how many prego pictures can be found of Michelle Obama. Get ahold of yourself. Petty is not pretty.August 15, 2023 at 6:42 pm #226500
Oh come on! And somebody found his phone and determined he was never seen again? Who the heck up loaded it to TikTok? Bend OR PD?July 14, 2023 at 8:00 pm #225407
At first I thought I missed an explanation as to what became of Glenn. But at the very end they said it. 🙁 Life marches on. Thanks for sharing that Pam. I found it quite interesting.July 13, 2023 at 8:47 pm #225351
Tucker’s show on fox never was based in fact. It was an opinion piece and shown for entertainment purposes only. You can say “Carlson was not out front on the stolen election”. But we all know he often inferred there was wide spread election fraud in the 2020 elections. This despite the fact that Sidney Powel stiffed him. The right wing party is absolutely filled with liars and grifters. That he (or anyone else) would even pretend his show on fox was anything close to unbiased news, is laughable and criminal.
I mean really! Take a step back. Try not to get bogged down in the victim mentality. Why in the world would Tucker and Fox news spend so much time and effort just a couple years ago to convince the public and the courts that TC’s show and Fox network in general is satire, comedy and entertainment? Why because they knew it was all lies and they were getting sued. They didn’t have a leg to stand on. So they admitted it was pure entertainment, not based in fact. They got out of paying a settlement.
But now… now TC is implying his words are the truth… he is unbiased???!!! Oh yeah, that’s right, Tucker is now seeking donations to start his own network. BTW you know he is still being paid by fox , right?
Bottom line is Tucker Carlson spreads misinformation and disinformation. He is not a victim of a smear campaign. He has a hidden agenda if he is trying to convince people otherwise. You are gullible if you believe him.June 29, 2023 at 5:18 pm #225039
Thats funny Wolf. If you are referring to me, you aren’t even half right.June 29, 2023 at 2:43 am #225011
