Okay. But interesting response. Which point exactly? The point that we have a republic and not a democracy? The very pointed difference between a democracy and a republic? The point of how analyzing one form of government falsely as another form of government is faulty and therefore inaccurate and irrelevant?


It could be argued this is nothing more than a Brave New Oligarchy since at least 2008, with the coup that was literally too big to fail. I'm saying you have a valuable point for a different discussion, but none of that would be relevant for the recent mutations of American Mythology under Mr. Presents.

Featuring interviews with lawmakers, journalists, activists and dissidents, world renowned historians, and constitutional scholars and lawyerson the front lines of scores of battles against the Trump administration, this episode offers an overview of how the Republican Party has embraced Trump as a Trojan horse to ram through its most extreme — and long-standing — policy agendas. It also probes the role of Democratic Party leaders in facilitating some of Trump and the GOP’s most dangerous policies and lays out the stakes of the 2020 presidential election, which Trump is already calling illegitimate.

I suggest people not.

Straight up PROPAGANDA.



WRONG. Even Republicans hate him. Can't imagine why.


here is the source where you can verify this for yourself. It’s at the Federal Election Commissions website. Follow instructions in detail.


In the Disbursements download you will find multiple filings of cash being transferred from conservative Campaigns/Pacs. The amount of cash being transferred for each transaction can be as low as $100,000 to $5,000,000,000 and up..

This is either the biggest theft/ hack in American history. The biggest glitch in the FEC database in American history or the Republican party backstabbing the President, all Trump Supporter, most conservatives , and just about everyone living in the USA. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. What little integrity that remained in the political parties in the USA is gone. This will prove that the Republicans are/have been working with democrats all along. A one party government.

I see Joe Biden’s “ Biden for President “ funds growing at a record breaking rate..

'Black' people are only suppose to vote for Democrats. For some odd reason they aren't allowed to make up their minds.


Yeah, that's really backfiring on Dems this election! And the riots and violence they doubled down on just made even more Black people "walk away."

I don't expect them all to vote Trump -- although many will -- but I suspect the Black (and Hispanic) defections from the Dem party are far higher than they want us to know.

That whole mob rule/cancel culture/violent rioting ain't working out so well for them Dems right now.

Fair enough.

But I think there is already far too many people using the clear and consistent violations of both the letter and spirit of our republic to legitimize other ideologies.

I want to know how Trump -- and others -- have twisted and tweaked our proper form of government, and how to get back to what it should be.

I used to never check Media Bias now it's routine.I prefer my news sourcers to not lean either left or right. Here's what it says about the Intercept...

mediabiasfactcheck.com...

In review, The Intercept publishes articles with strongly emotionally loaded language such as “The Ignored Legacy of George H.W. Bush: War Crimes, Racism, and Obstruction of Justice” and “The 10 Most Appalling Articles in the Weekly Standard’s Short and Dreadful Life.” The Intercept rejects mainstream establishment politics in favor of progressive liberalism with this pro-Bernie Sanders quote: “ignore the opinion polls and the bogus arguments against him: whether you like him or not, Bernie Sanders is the frontrunner right now”, from “Critics Say Bernie Sanders Is Too Old, Too White, and Too Socialist to Run for President in 2020. They’re Wrong.” When it comes to sourcing The Intercept always uses credible sources such as Washington Examiner, The Economist, The Hill Politico, NYMag, and the Washington Post.

In general, The Intercept provides indepth investigative stories that are sensational in nature. Most stories are critical of the right-left establishment and lean strongly progressive left in ideology.

A factual search reveals they have not failed a fact check, however in 2016 they fired Juan Thompson for fabricating quotes and establishing email accounts to trick editors. The Intercept reported: “Thompson admitted to creating fake email accounts and fabricating messages, but stood by his published work. He did not cooperate in the review,”

Overall, we rate The Intercept progressive Left Biased based on story selection that favors the left and High for factual reporting due to proper sourcing. (5/18/2016) Updated (M. Huitsing 12/22/2018)

But that story cannot be told without also exploring how various U.S. systems and the policies of Trump’s predecessors carved the way for many of his most dangerous actions.


I've often said the consolidation of power away from the Legislative and into the Executive under what is now known as the Unitary Executive is the most dangerous thing we have done in the United States. The President has far too much power and it needs to be redelegated to the Congress.


I would agree only if term limits for congress are part of the deal.

I’m the same. Such a sad world we live in where we can’t trust our politicians or our media because of their ideological agendas they try to force on us.

I don't think it needs to be an either or, the President has too much power and will continue to consolidate more.

You'll need to be faster if you wanna shoot the messenger in your quest for adhom fallacies. You guys think Breitbart is a legit sauce, why not try the Intercept for once?

Go ahead, I'm still looking forward to a single factual response from one of you useful idiots with the strong worded zero argument replies. Kinda typical tho, which is pretty hilarious on it's own merit.

Go find once in my 15 plus years here where I sourced Breibart, my post says I prefer my media to not lean either way. It kind of defeats the point of fair and honest.

Nobody cares about your posting history. You chose to fly with the literal adhom fallacy to ignore anything from Scahill, for "good reasons" you derived from copypasta.

Duly noted. Next?

I love how hit pieces like this fail to reflect on the political situation in Washington.

Some years ago a woman named Pelosi said and I quote " You must vote on it before you read it".

This was a bill authored by the Obama administration. This was an example of the power grab and dictatorial policy being driven by the left. Notice during this time the left had a majority in all branches of government and failed to deliver on promises made, but continued enriching themselves and aligning themselves with countries that do not share our ideals and horrible histories on human rights.

At that point, the left lost any trust in their behavior in government and would do anything to take hold of our free society.

Why do journalists need to be "fair". What does that even mean? The Intercept is 100% facts. Anything it claims to be factual, is factual, always. That's honesty. They also have an opinion, because Scahill believes in a kind of politics that's far off from the U.S.'s current left or right ideals. And, to add to the honesty, he's pretty forthright about where he writes from politically.

If you're aware of the bias held by the media agent, but all of the facts they're claiming are still 100% factual, that's as honest as journalism is going to get in the age of the 24 hour news cycle.

Talk about an awful response to a legitimate comment. Media bias is real. Both sides are guilty of falling for political spin. Both sides of the media are guilty of purposefully lying and misleading their viewers to push their propaganda with sensationalized journalism. Your guy Jeremy is no better than the worst of them. All Putnam is saying is that they research their news sources like any decent human being should before reading it, and that they found your website to be garbage. Which it is. He’s not defending the right, he’s saying he demands neutral journalism which is becoming harder to find as long as ignorant fools keep sharing this ideological filth.

My we are sensitive today...

Reading is fundamental where did I say ignore, all I said was prefer non-leaning media sources left or right, yes I know it's a dying breed these days. But I do prefer as they usually attack both sides equally.

I read the article and didn't say it wasn't factual. Media Bias actually gave them a high rating for factual information. But it also points out the use of bombastic words etc. Yes, I know the media has to make a buck, and pandering to its audience is the easiest way to achieve that. Still my preferred,as in my personal choice which in no way invalidates your preferences or choices, was like CBS used to operate its news division at a loss, but it had integrity and implied nonbiased reporting.

ill be honest: im not going to watch it. Im just not that hard for him either way...and won't watch stuff about him. Unless he dons a superhero outfit and shoots lasers out his eyes, or learns hand to hand combat, its not my kind of entertainment.

But i will point out that the OP indicates this is a predetermined outcome. Calling him "extreme" is kind of absurd. There really isn't much extreme about his policies. Other than they benefit just about everyone.

Do you take in media that doesn't confirm your bias? Not a facetious question. Its an honest question. Because it does not seem that you do. Which should concern you, if accurate.
