“The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command. George Orwell 1984

“What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.” Donald J Trump, July 2018

“No! Truth isn’t truth!” Rudy Giuliani, August 2018

“The President has alternative facts.” Kelly Ann Conway, January 2017

“Feelings are facts too.” Newt Gingrich, August 2016

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.” Issac Asimov

I hope that eventually it will dawn on everyone who the liars really are. Who it is that’s twisting the truth. Who it is that’s turning you into a liar every time you defend them by using their lies as a defense.

Or maybe everyone already knows. And just doesn’t care. I don’t know what’s worse. Having your head buried so far in the sand you can’t see what Donald Trump and the GOP are doing, or knowing they’re lying and manipulating the truth and just not caring. Being willing to let go of any expectation of ethical behavior because you hate the other side so much.

Supporting someone like Mitch McConnell who has already stated that he’s made up his mind about the impeachment before even seeing any of the evidence. In essence bastardizing the exact thing our leaders are supposedly elected for. All in the name of party loyalty. Not American loyalty.

At this point you either support Donald Trump or you support Democracy. You support a President proudly flouting the law or you support law and order. You support the constitution and the American process or you support sweeping Executive power and privilege.

Asimov was a prophet.

They trust in him without question, and they will go down with their Chosen One. By the time they realize that the GOP has betrayed us with the New Apostolic Reformation and Russia, it will be too late.

It's a case of the sunk cost fallacy. They've put so much time and energy into defending him that they will never admit they are wrong no matter what happens. They'll shift blame to anyone but their chosen one, all to make themselves believe all that time and energy wasn't wasted. They'll keep doubling down until the day they die because it's easier to fool someone than it is to convince them they've been fooled.

Don't you have a talking head or politician to listen to and get angry over?

Emotions! Just give in to them, the media demands it.

My fav quote from Asimov....
"People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do."

So you support the msm?
I don't trust either party, but what is happening in the media is nuts.
He's spot on.

It's disturbing to know that the fascist sympathizers have nothing better to do than to laugh and shrug off these damning quotes.

Trump surrounds himself with NAR dominionist who want a theocracy for America. They call it the Seven Mountains Mandate. They are indeed fascists. If you turn a blind eye to their agenda, you are a FASCIST SYMPATHIZER.

Wake up. Don't sacrifice everyone's freedom over a stupid rivalry.

It sickens me to admit that the Democrats are right this time, but the evidence is there. Just set the propaganda aside and looked for yourselves. The GOP doing a half-ass job at covering this up, and Trump's supporters keep their heads in the sand...just like Obama's supporters did. They've become like the very sycophants they hated.

Trump tried to bribe Ukraine. Then he withheld aid from them in an attempt to get what he wanted. He's trying to do Russia's dirty work for them.

Seek help. There is something seriously wrong with how you process reality and facts.

"I will have Mr. Giuliani give you a call".

Read the transcript Zelensky transcript. Trump wanted an investigation to which Zelensky agreed would be mutually beneficial. He tells Zelensky to correspond with Giuliani. Giuliani carries out his investigation.

That's probable cause. Trump got information that he wanted from Ukraine with Giuliani as the middle man. His name was mentioned in the transcript.

Yet, they aren’t impeaching for Bribery, so you should run down to DC and give your heroes the evidence they haven’t managed to find.

WRONG!
How do you bribe or extort someone when they don't know the are being bribed or extorted. Zelensky had no idea money was being withheld, the Bidens were not investigated by Ukraine, and Zelensky did not hold a press conference announcing an investigation. The democrats are afraid of what will be found in Ukraine, they are eyeball deep in corruption. A Ukrainian arms dealer had funraisers for Schiff, Pelosi's son is envolved in Ukraine. The FBI lied 4 times to the FISA court, so they could spy on Trump, even after he was elected President, but that's ok because he bad orange man.
