I'm pretty sure I can think for myself.


"Pretty sure"... Yet not certain. LOL


I expected someone to come back with this remark.

However, I left it at Pretty sure - - to see if I was right.

I find it enjoyable watching CNN trying to spin this. Mental gymnastics


Are you kidding? I listen to CNN at the gym as I exercise with my eyes closed.

You could tell every time a Republican came on because they threw in every "Alternate Fact" they could conjure up.

It was really pathetic.



It's all edited programming to brainwash the masses Annee. FOX does it, CNN does it, they all do it. CNN isn't going to air a Republican making much sense anymore than FOX would a Dem and if and when they do, it's always out of context. Do yourself a favor and put on some jams to workout to, your sanity will thank you.


I'm pretty sure I can think for myself.



Well.........I'm starting to dare to differ, you said it yourself "I listen to CNN with my eyes closed". I now assume you meant this figuratively.

That's so amazing. You are a genius. You can predict when someone replies to stupid comments. You deserve an award for that. It's incredible.

Now go back to watching CNN and confirming your bias.

Yes, because Trump is 'just one of us' and the fact he's a special interest billionaire has nothing to do with the fact he was tapped. You should be outraged at the similarity of your circumstances to his and the Government listening to your calls. /s


This is one of the dumbest controversies of all time, Republicans are more mad they got caught than anything, and will debase the intelligence agencies collecting information at any cost. Tapping 1 billionaire isn't an attempt to 'destroy America', it's an effort to vet him and preserve it. What are you so angry about? You people are becoming religious zealots in frenzy, like tapping Trump is equivalent to slapping the Pope. If I were the CIA, I'd be tapping the Pope too.

It's just massive arrogance and ego at work. People think they're so special. No one is immune to this type of scrutiny. Sure you can hide in fear like the Government is listening, but you're not Trump or a Russian Contact.

Who that is informed is seriously going to suggest we shouldn't listen to any phone calls at all? We might as well just send the terrorist RSVP's.

And all this aside, if the tapped calls revealed anything terrible would this not be a GOOD thing? Or is getting away with being a terrible person how Republican's gauge success? Doesn't get more transparent than listening to Trump when he doesn't know. Grab them by the pussy.

You don't need eyesight to listen.

No tricks here.

Annee, doesn't it ever begin to feel like this sometimes?



The "backfire effect" is quite real around here. Despite being confronted with compelling evidence, people dig their feet in and double down. It's a very real phenomenon:



When you read a negative comment, when someone *bleeps* on what you love, when your beliefs are challenged, you pore over the data, picking it apart, searching for weakness. The cognitive dissonance locks up the gears of your mind until you deal with it. In the process you form more neural connections, build new memories and put out effort – once you finally move on, your original convictions are stronger than ever.

The trump army will never admit they're wrong, that would require being honest and having self reflection.

To be honest though, sight is a huge favorable factor in authenticating news, while listening is purely for digestion. People that listen to the radio for news exclusively are loons, but well informed loons, while people that watch TV are ding-bats.

The internet is best if you want to know the information you're getting is real; not that you don't know, it's honestly funny the ATS standards to reality. He's telling someone with 36,000 posts on ATS they "Only watch/listen/whatever CNN". People on ATS generally are already at a different standard than that, can we end the meme already?

And watching CNN doesn't mean your brain is melting, it would mean you would have better understanding of that platform. John Stewart watched all the networks and got rich from criticizing them all. His joke that CNN is for the airport has extremely negative undertones around the idea that only Rich Business people support it.

I honestly don't know where all these people that watch CNN 12 hours a day are, but according to you guys they're everywhere. You should know, 25 million homes(20%) are a 'cord cutter' generation and don't even have access to 12 hours of CNN a day.

Sessions has recused himself from any investigation of the president remember? He can't even publicly make a comment on the situation.

Watch the video of the hearings.
There is another one next Monday I believe also. Though I don't know if the committee is still valid after what Nunes pulled today.

Hell yeah! I'm very logical. And I try to read words/phrases exactly as stated.

The "word gymnastics" from Trumpster's is enough to make you dizzy.

That's merely right wing rhetoric you know right?
Every time you repeat it you're a sheep.
There's nothing wrong with CNN or msm for that matter.
The idiot in the Whitehouse doesn't know anything. He's uninformed, ill educated and thick headed while being thin skinned and he defames everybody and any media that doesn't put him on a pedestal. So when he says fake news you can pretty much assume it's real.
It's only day 62 people!

He should be removed from the investigation.

Actually, reality is quite clear, pretty simple, obvious in many respects.

That lefties don't see it and instead argue from this imaginary utopia they've constructed, does no one any good.

Indeed, there is quite a bit of gymnastics. Someone should warn the Russians, their Olympic ambitions might be in jeopardy!
