    So? Have you offered to blow any of them?

    Now, back to the thread topic: Do you like failing New York Times reporters that lie?

    Because you say so or a Twitter response says so? NO LINK for either of you.

    Bottom line, why if the funding was in place did these guys have to show up and ask for it? Seems like they would have better things to do than hop in cars or Amtrak trains and ride to DC with Jon Stewart. Train fare what $60 each way from NYC or Jersey? What don't WE know about this subject?

    PS I don't know who the ranking member is on this Committee but JIM JORDAN was at the investigation to throw out BS at the Trump Obstruction/Collusion investigation. Yethe wasn't at the 9/11 responder group's and apparently he sits on that committee too...



    So it was a notable when just a day later, when his committee held an emotional hearing about getting health care for 9/11 first responders sickened by their exposure to toxic dust and chemicals at Ground Zero, Jordan was nowhere to be found:

    Yesterday Jim Jordan lambasted House Democrats and questioned their priorities.

    Today he skipped his committee’s hearing on helping 9/11 victims.

    When it came time to discuss a concrete issue that had nothing to do with Trump investigations, House Democrats were there — and Jordan, for all his bluster, was not.

    Default Muslim bigamist FEMOCRAT filed false tax returns; AP defends her



    JEW-HATING MUSLIM IS A BIGAMIST AND TAX CHEAT


    Last week, we were given the news that Ilhan Omar had committed campaign finance violations.

    It took an announcement by Minnesota campaign finance officials to finally get a few mainstream outlets to notice.

    Then things got worse, as it became clear that part of the entire scheme involved her filing joint tax returns with someone she wasn’t married to, all while simultaneously being married to another man.

    The Associated Press did finally put out a story on the ordeal, but decided to use it’s position to shill for Omar.

    Instead of an investigative piece on her wrongdoing, they found an “expert” to do a Q&A assuring everyone that Omar is in the clear.


    Despite the mainstream press’ desire to bury this story, Omar’s hometown paper has a bit of a harsher (but not too harsh) take. While they are extremely pro-DEMOCRAT, the Star Tribune’s editorial board took the Congresswoman to task: It’s against the law in Minnesota to file jointly unless one filer is legally married to the other. Last year Omar told the Star Tribune that she had married her partner “in her faith,” and had earlier divorced her first husband “in her faith.” That’s fine for religious purposes. But for tax purposes, only civil marriages qualify. It’s not known whether she benefited materially by filing jointly. That is something that voters, who are obliged to follow tax laws no matter how painful, are entitled to know.

    Omar’s excuse has been to say she was divorced and remarried in her “faith.” The IRS doesn’t care about that.

    Default Russian bots linked to mainstream news




    A new study by cybersecurity company Symantec made waves last week with a new study claiming that Russia’s activities on Twitter in the run-up to the 2016 election.

    The study concluded that Russia’s Internet Research Agency (IRA) funded by Russian operative Yevgeny Prigozhin had an “incredibly successful” run on Twitter “well in advance” of the 2016 election. But how much bigger? And could the difference have swayed voter decision-making?

    Did Putin’s bots really succeed in breaking up U.S. politics as many on the left have implied?

    Symantec found that tweets from IRA accounts shared links from popular news websites such as NBC, a San Francisco news site called Kron4, The Seattle Times, CBS and more.

    Journalist Tim Pool, who has spoken extensively on the issue of Russian activity on social media, said, “Many activist groups and special interests do share real news in an effort to surface certain conversations. NBC previously reported that Russia is trying to foment racial animosity so by sharing certain stories, on say police brutality, they can push divisive conversations to the forefront and cause problems for the U.S.”

    It is impossible to say that such a phenomenon influenced voter decisions in 2016.

    What is perhaps equally concerning is the fact that the Russians profited off their fake accounts and interactions on social media. Symantec found that at least one of the 3,836 Russian accounts made a “substantial income” through a monetization website called Shorte.st, which claims that its users can earn up to $14 for shortening links through their application, so as long as it gets at least 1,000 clicks.

    So while attempting to further divide Americans by promoting tweets specific to both left and right-wing ideologies, Russian operatives were also profiting off their most successful social media posts.

    For comparison purposes, Fox News earned three times as many primetime viewers (2.34 million) and more than twice as many total day viewers (1.34 million). What’s more, when compared to this same month last year, Fox lost none of its primetime viewers and only four percent of its total day viewers.
    Fox numbers are misleading, first, it is the same people watching, nobody turns on Fox for news, all they are doing is preaching to the choir, and secondly, they are pale in comparison to all three network news broadcasts

    And beyond belief is that you would use Breitfart compiled statistics as evidence and commentary, might as well have employed the Onion for the same
