So I keep hearing on the News that Michael Flynn Violated the Logan Act. I put this in the Madness Forum instead of the Mud Pit Forum because this is just Maddening. The Democrats are trying so hard to impeach Trump and are just failing miserably. Fighting Trump on everyone of his Cabinet picks. I mean people didn't like Bush or Obama but i dont ever remember them ever wanting them to fail. The worst I ever heard about Obama(at least during the 1st 100 Days) was that he's a Muslim or that he wasn't born in the US. And ever since the Democrats lost all 3 Branches Obama started this Fake News nonsense which has turned reality. Just take a look at this article 2nd paragraph:

Did Michael Flynn Violate the Logan Act? Will He Resign Over Russia?




However, it’s a law that no one has ever been found guilty of violating, despite being on the books since 1798, according to The Washington Post, which added, “It seems its main purpose these past 200 years has been as a political weapon for the opposition party to cast doubt on the other party’s foreign policies.”




no one has ever been found guilty of violating


And thats when I stopped reading the article. When the Republicans went after Hillary she just said "There’s a lot of smoke and there’s no fire". When the Democrats are so desperate to try and convict someone for a crime that no one has ever been convicted of before and its been on the books since 1798 your critical thinking skills should be on overdrive.

Even if Flynn was convicted of violating the Logan Act, it would not be grounds to impeach Trump. So I'm not sure what one has to do with the other.

The Republicans fought Obama too, in the same manner.



And ever since the Democrats lost all 3 Branches Obama started this Fake News nonsense which has turned reality.


So since the Democrats lost power, Obama created Fake news?

What? That makes no sense. Fake news came to the spotlight when it was discovered fake news sites were being created to generate revenue, and the Right was falling for it. Their reaction was to embrace the term and call everything they disagree with fake news.

If there's a law on the books that hasn't been broken since 1798, that law shouldn't exist.

That one, and a few million others, fire starters.

How about Hillary attending all those Bilderberg meetings?

And cronying with George Soros?

And the Pay For Play millions "donated" to the Clinton Foundation by foreign government sorts?

A violation of the Logan Act is how I view the immigration ban fight.

Ponder them apples.

No the Republicans never acted like this. Though I must admit it is entertaining.

The resurrecting of this story is just a deflection away from the real issues.

There's a lot that's going to be exposed soon about the last Administration.

Big news on the way.

Of course it dominates it. It's become the latest craze among the Right Wing. It's their knee-jerk response out of embarrassment.

How is that meaningful?

That's what you believe based on the propaganda you subject yourself to. CNN is the Right Wing scapegoat. The truth is, fake news is something different entirely.


The rising trend of fake news during 2016 was very different to largely state controlled analogue modes of 20th century propaganda. What we saw often here were small groups of people taking advantage of social media interaction and algorithms through creating hyperbolic articles around a major political event: the US Presidential election.



After November 9th, the network of sites publishing fake news were being decried loudly by media outlets. Many flatly announced that Facebook, and the fake news shooting through newsfeeds within, had won the election for Trump.


Trump's unpredictability and his fueling of distrust of his opponents led to a growth in fake news that was supportive of him. In an atmosphere where you never know what might happen next or what to believe, you're going to be more receptive to hyperbole and truth distortion. "Pope backs Trump", "Hillary sold weapons to ISIS", "FBI Agent Suspected in Hillary Email Leaks Found Dead" - these fake headlines all went viral on Facebook in the run up to the election, gaining such high engagement that BuzzFeed published an analysis on how they had outperformed real news on Facebook.

What reality are you living in?

Are you that dense, fail to pay attention, or just selectively pay attention?

Obama was constantly stonewalled in most of what he wanted, or tried, to do at every turn. Republicans stated they wanted Obama and his policies to fail (Limbaugh, Pence, etc) from the very start. They refused a hearing on Garland, and they blocked any and all things they could that Obama and the democrats tried to do for eight years.

It's the complete BS statement like you made above that is part of the problem—because you and so many others believe it.

The Republicans were indeed obstructionist during Obama's terms.

Since CNN is fake news, can you please direct me to where I can find non-fake news, then?

I really like to know what source I can completely trust.

Try again.

2006 his party took over both the house and senate.

By 2008 they held the trifecta, and went so far as to change rules so.

What is going on now compared to then is a false equivalence.

Because its suggestive ...Oh look who is on the list mmmm the US is last but if the subject matter was of a positive nature then you could be sure that the US would be # 1 ... Fake news takes on different characteristics ..miss leading ,factually incorrect ,edited comments , miss quoted ,. the list is long and even using blue or green screens . There is a ton of examples but CNN dominates it and claims its not us ...

Fake News is completely fabricated news. Not misleading, not factually incorrect, not biased.

CNN is not fake news. The websites created to push fabricated news to troll Right Wingers, are fake news.

I notice you didn't comment on any thing else in my post.

Why?
