Using snopes to debunk something that makes the left look bad is like citing Wikipedia as a source on a Master Thesis.

Yup... Snopes is part of the propaganda machine which claims to be "independent" but isn't.

Just like the "news".

Speaking of snopes, there's been a write up making it's rounds out there regarding a ton of political stuff. Snopes didn't do a piece on the whole thing, but I noticed they did multiple pieces on select portions of this write up. Each time, they pathetically mirco focus on one little thing and claim it's unproven, etc.

Here they focus on whether the records were "deleted", and they disprove this by saying "It took us only a few minutes to find that case on a court records database and locate a document written and signed by Barsoomian.", which sounds complicated in them having to search a database to find it.
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/li...od-rosenstein/

This, of course, is just a tiny fraction of the overall write up that they seem to ignore as a whole. I'll post a link to the entire thing, by chance a reddit link where a guy asks people to debunk it(nobody does):
https://www.reddit.com/r/politicalfa...uttal_to_this/

Here is another snopes article that only focuses on yet another small part of that, and they deem it "unproven" that Comey benefited from Clinton Foundation:
https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/co...on-foundation/

Curious to hear what any of you guys think of it.

Ha. No worries, yet my referenced stats held up and had no need of being debunked. A cursory search would have told that tale to the poster.

Wikipedia. I spent some early time there about ten years ago and gave up having to defend the simplest things. I don't even bother to clean up bad grammar anymore.

CNBC had an article today outlining how JP Morgan told its "wealthy clients" that the big-D candidates were a "threat", (yep, they used that exact word), to the US economy and US markets.

In regards to President Trump, JP Morgan stated:

While Warren and Sanders are a legitimate threat, the firm noted that Trump has the strongest election tailwinds since 1896, with regard to market and economic score. The score includes consumer price inflation, unemployment levels, GDP, equity market returns and volatility and home price appreciation.

“Current conditions compare favorably for Trump as an incumbent compared to history,”

My predictions are sadly moving towards coming true.
It looks like it'll be a really tight race between Sanders and Biden.

I'm not sure what Sander's chances are if he gets the nomination, but if he did win, it'll be interesting to say the least.

Two old white guys with crazy hair going at in the debates.

Creepy Joe Biden and his worthless son getting slammed yesterday at the impeachment hearings....but there will be no justice as Democrats/liberals once again turn a blind eye to any corruption, immorality, or racism anyone on their side commits.

The democratic debates have already sank to spelling-bee level.

For shitsakes we had aunt liz and uncle bernie calling each other liars just the other day.
Quidpro Joe calling people fat...
Bloomberg on campaign ads bragging about spending his money to interfere with and influence state level elections...
Gabbard suing clinton for defamation...


how much 'stupider' can it get ???

Even the Liberal Press would rather cover anything but the 2020 Democrat Candidates.

I think Sanders and Gabbard are their best options, and we know they'll never choose Gabbard. But sanders is just so easy to snipe, what with all the readily available videos of him praising pinko commies and fraternising with the jihadi/sarsour's of the world. If I were Trump debating him, I'd just wear a 'Viva la Venezuela' tshirt and smirk at him.

Obama did say he'd have to say something if Bernie were the nominee, as well.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/01/21/hillary-clinton-barack-obama-want-stop-bernie-sanders-can-they-actually-do-it/

It would be epic to see the backlash in 2024 if Bernie won 2020, as people watch the assault on *any* income begin.

Bloomberg is running a ton of ads in Tennessee. I saw one yesterday and just started laughing at how stupid it was. Basically, it was blaming POTUS for climate change.
