Now, conceder this…
Those that oppose water boarding do so arguing it is torture. Further arguing that information extracted by torture is unreliable. When torture is applied the subject with say anything to stop it is the basic logic presented.…
Before moving to the next point… water boarding is *SIMULATED* drowning (emphasis added)
If we are to stipulate water boarding being ‘torture’, pouring water on someone’s face, what else qualifies?

🤔 Humm...
What about having millions of dollars in legal fees imposed upon you and your freedom taken?
All predicated on issues examined and dismissed in the past but is now being used to ‘pressure’ into ‘cooperation’.
Obviously this is steering to Paul Manafort (@paulmanafort) like most of the country, I never heard of him prior to his coming on the Trump campaign.
I quickly formed the opinion I didn’t care for him. Came off sleazy IMO. His associate Roger Stone is another one!
I was pleased when the campaign jettisoned Mr. Manafort. #truestory
Regardless, what is being done to him is a disgrace. An absolute disgrace! Ironically enough, for all the Nazi hyperbole tossed around; the closest to experiencing gestapo tactics is the ordeal of Paul Manafort.…
Never short on irony, the very same people that gleefully support a US citizen subjected to economic and legal torture to “get him to *flip on Trump” (*very presumptuous alone) harshly condemned torture against enemy combatants to extract valuable Intel.…
Applying pressure to flip on trump could be considered gaining Intel, correct?

Yes it is.

How would that be different than Intel gained from waterboarding? How would any “cooperation” be reliable?
What would you rather have done to you?
Have your life’s accumulated wealth taken from you and be tossed into solitary with the potential of dying in prison; or have water poured on your face?

Be honest!
What is worse?? seems obvious to me. If the crimes Manafort faces were so serious 🤔 why wait for nearly a decade to prosecute? His sleaziness withstanding, the prevailing presumption of guilt is ill advised IMO.
This is a fair comparison… all the talk of “pressure him to turn on Trump” talk got me to thinking… aren’t these the same people jumping up and down about applying pressure to cooperate using enhanced interrogation techniques. Yes, yes it is.…
Not only is this permissible in the same people's minds, euphoric pleasure is disturbingly extracted from this whole process as it unfolds.…
Keeping consistent in Inconsistency, the enthusiastic pleasure in seeing enhanced prosecutorial techniques being aggressively applied upon Paul Manafort should be most unsettling to all freedom loving Americans.
I have no idea of his ultimate guilt or innocence for the crimes he’s currently charged with.
I recall a time when presumption of innocence was big with the people...
I do, also, know the peanut gallery is elated with the harsh, torturous, treatment of an American citizen and advocates special protections to enemy combatants... 😕

As most of us expected, Brett Cavanaugh was confirmed as the 114th Supreme Court Justice.

After a particularly contentious confirmation process rife with rumor, innuendo and salacious accusations: largely described “palace intrigue” in the mass market media.
The notable decline in decorum with regard to judicial nominees within the united states senate has not gone unnoticed.
The correspondents were discussing whether there was a need to fundamentally change the senate or the Judicial confirmation process at least.
Of course my reflex reaction is: NO! Often reflex reactions can be wrong.
With little doubt do we have the same idea.
The talking heads would probably want to further bastardize the senate in some shape or form.

🤣 That's hilarious. So this clown chimes in with this snarky comment. The irony is, it is she that is the partisan hack that doesn't know what she's talking about.
I noted Holder to be first cabinet official held in contempt of congress (fact BTW)
I promptly respond, using partisan sources, her partisan sources... @nytimes and @politico to show her her error. I love when cocky idiots step to me, it's great!
Not one word in response... I mean, what do you say to that? Must have been a blow to the ego. Clearly blocking me is the answer 🤣 what a total LOSER!

A concern my father expressed with the Michigan election... and he has a point.

Given it's not exclusive, however, this proposal will bring every beatnik leftist wanna be kid to the poles in droves...
I'm not knocking it... I probably support this and had a living off the care giver laws. I am watching the small guy getting run over and people that sold major wieght for years become "legitimized" taking over much of the industry here.
For example most grow stores, especially ME owned, have massive illegal grows behind them, same with dispensaries. I've watched one major player criminal after the next step into these roles because they have the cash.

@JohnJamesMI rocking ya out until election day. 👍🦅🗽🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

For God & County!
However, I don't really wear ball caps anymore (good for that pic) ... Mainly the #MAGA stays on my armoire. 🇺🇸 But is on hand for special events. Procured from the Washington MI rally.
My favorite 2 flags are featured in each pic too! 🇺🇸🦅
First is my Mount Vernon flag, named because it was first flown on the flag pole of Washington's estate. Forget the day, the certificate is particularly in frame. This flag has been bannered in my home office ever since.

@twitter you guys really siphoned all the fun out of your platform. @jack obsession with lopsided censorship is reaching new levels.🤐

Mere Conservative ideas; GOTTA GO! 🤬

Known, recognized terrorist organizations funding and recruitment;
meh, no biggie...🤯

This is 🐂💩!
What do I mean?
#JamesWoods #ThomasWictor #GavinMcinnes #OwenBenjamin to name just a few... Can't have them.
No no.
But this crap is perfectly fine...
I was watching a 1977 episode of 'Soap' last night, this program could not be produced today. Not because Billy Crystal's gay character was concidering a sex change, attempted suicide, then opted against the sex change... No, this scene cought my attention... 👇
