Trump is losing his war on the FBI

Sixty-six percent of Americans surveyed said they would take the side of the FBI if a schism were to arise between the bureau and Trump, while only 24 percent said they would side with the president.

Archie Bunker actually had a human side to him and could occasionally be brought, grudgingly, to the right thing.

I've no similar expectations for this one.

When was 50% a majority?

"50% of Likely U.S. Voters believe it’s at least Somewhat Likely senior federal law enforcement officials broke the law in an effort to prevent Donald Trump from winning the presidency, including 32% who think it’s Very Likely. Forty percent (40%) think it’s not likely these officials broke the law, with 25% who feel it’s Not At All Likely."

From your original post.

MIT indeed.

Is that sufficient enough to move on to the next disinformation campaign, or were you looking for higher numbers?

Speaking of higher numbers...

"Some 55% of those said it was "likely" that the Obama administration "improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 election." There was an obvious partisan split among the responses, with 87% of Republicans and 55% of independents saying the improper spying took place, but only 31% of Democrats.

On the question of whether a special counsel was needed to "investigate whether the FBI and the Department of Justice improperly surveilled the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election," 54% responded "yes," and 44% "no." Again, 74% of Republicans and 50% of independents wanted a special counsel appointed. But even 44% of Democrats thought it would be a good idea".

Right...You probably think it common for an investigator to determine the outcome of an investigation in advance too. Time will tell what's disinformation and what's not..

"There are many more layers of the onion to peel, but here’s where we are now: It increasingly appears that the Clinton machine was the secret, original source of virtually all the allegations about Trump and Russia that led to the FBI investigation.

In addition, the campaign and its associates, including Steele, were behind the explosion of anonymously sourced media reports during the fall of 2016 about that investigation.

Thus, the Democratic nominee paid for and created allegations against her Republican opponent, gave them to law enforcement, then tipped friendly media to the investigation. And it is almost certain FBI agents supporting Clinton were among the anonymous sources.

In fact, the Clinton connections are so fundamental that there probably would not have been an FBI investigation without her involvement.

That makes hers a brazen work of political genius — and perhaps the dirtiest dirty trick ever played in presidential history. Following her manipulation of the party operation to thwart Bernie Sanders in the primary, Clinton is revealed as relentlessly ruthless in her quest to be president".

It appears some of the Faithful are suggesting action be taken because a “majority” of folks polled believe something. 

I wonder if those same folks have taken a look at their Messiah’s approval ratings. You know, the ones that have NEVER climbed above 50%.

His disapproval numbers indicate a majority of folks polled do not approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing as President. Time to take action?

Same reason for what Americans think about other subjects, not all of them are right-wing.

Almost half of Americans see torture as acceptable

The same people told them that they would be safer if brown people were tortured, they believe it.

So, 50% of "likely voters" say it is "somewhat likely" that senior law enforcement broke the law and Jack takes that a majority believing they actually did break the law? Preprocessing incomplete moron.

Thinking something is "somewhat likely" is not the same as thinking it is so. Ignoring the fact they only went with their version of "likely voters" (i.e. didn't poll all adults, didn't even poll all registered voters - or at least didn't report on those polls if they did) - only 32% of that demographic subset think it is "Very Likely"; which is close on the number of people that support Trump regardless of what he does. Which seems about right to me.

50% didn't say "Yes". They said they thought it "somewhat likely". The closest to a "Yes" would be the rusted on 32% that said "Very Likely"... and they merely reflect those (like yourself) that will accept whatever Trump says regardless of how stupid it might be.

Any first year intern at a polling company would understand the difference between "Yes" and "Somewhat Likely". One can only assume that you "met" your polling hero outside his workplace, possibly accosting him on the street stars in your eyes and your usual preprocessed drivel in your mouth. It's no surprise Nate continues to own you at every turn.

I think what you meant to say was "I am a shameless shill with nothing of value to add to any discussion. Sorry I wasted everyone's time and impugned their intelligence by suggesting I had something moderately sensible to say."

Apology accepted, now take your meltdown elsewhere.

To ignore the facts of Manafort's obligations to Russian oligarchs, Trump's dependency on Russian money and Papadopolous' statements, Carter Page's checkered history with the Russians and to blame this whole mess on Hillary Clinton is insidious gaslighting that is only meaningful within the right wing sound machine.

Everywhere else, it is regarded for the half-baked lies and propaganda on behalf of a morally decrepit millionaire/shyster whose minions have become unlikely champions for a country subject to Russian misinformation and FOXy infotainment.

Some may convince themselves and those who believe such "gospel", but that's not impressive nor does it make your interpretation of the bible legitimate. They worship false idols and speak blasphemy. They've exchanged patriotism and the rule of law for a cult of personality and "winning." It's dangerous and leads our country on a dangerous path.

Numbers, as we know them in the abstract are really just random shapes, or symbols to which quantitative value has been randomly given. Is 5 really 5?, or was it mislabeled at some point to the effect that now it qualifies as 5 by general consensus.

But if that is so, all of our math regarding 5, and whichever shape it superseded is simply wrong. It can be made to work because we now accept 5 as 5, but it doesn't make it correct.....

Nonsense...

The possibility of Trump collusion with Russia is hardly being ignored. It is the subject of investigation by a special prosecutor. This is not either/or, it can be both, and both should be investigated.


There is a growing stack of very compelling evidence that agents in FBI and DOJ used their office to clear Hillary of mishandling classified information and to influence an election.  The use of the agencies of government to subvert our democracy is pretty dangerous itself and should be of concern to patriots of all stripes.

Nah, it’s that the Clinton investigation went on for more than a decade with nothing to show for it. I’m sick of that being the entire GOP platform.

Turns out that’s the best of their platform. 

GOP fiscal plans will lead to more crushing debt atop that already created by UNPAID wars of aggression, their draconian social attitudes are racist and backwards, & they’d prefer to leave millions without worse healthcare and bankrupt. 

But, at least they have empowered pedophiles, wife beaters, pussy grabbers, billionaires and Nazi flag waving white boys: these underserved minorities are enjoying their 15minutes.

I don’t equate being a Democrat with corruption. Much of this is partisan bullshit. Trump is paired with too many questionable characters to avoid intense scrutiny; posts here which try to pin the FBI investigation on Clinton’s team spoofing the FBI is gaslighting  

As for the rest, the meeting on the tarmac without reliable witnesses/stated agenda was at minimum bad optics, which pales in comparison to the pale racist elf we’ve got now: Sessions is purposely placed as a paean to those who hate all things MLK, Trumps malfeasance dwarfs this old bull crap, and this is distracting from our current problems. 

Tell you what: show me the GOP is willing to look at the log in their eye and the FBI/DOJ investigation will get support. But the GOP isn’t the party of law and order anymore, Garland deserved a vote, and rules don’t seem to apply to this administration. 

When the GOP wants to become reasonable citizens, recognize facts and squelch the hyperpartisan bullshit, check back with me. Until then, they’ve  chosen warfare, lies, racism and corruption. You reap what you sew.

When the GOP wants to become reasonable citizens, recognize facts and squelch the hyperpartisan bullshit, check back with me. Until then, you’ve chosen warfare, lies, racism and corruption. You reap what you sew. 

I'll take that as a no but I fail to see what Trump or the current state of the GOP has to do with the question.

So you say.

Show some evidence of that along with how it was obtained.

Just call Nunes in and ask him to bend over.

Yeah, we already got that you don't like the GOP.

How would you feel about a special prosecutor to investigate corruption in the DOJ and FBI?

I rambled a bit about the perfidy of the GOP... then

The point is, Dog, I believe the FBI and the DOJ are institutions worthy of my respect. I trust them far more than the GOP which has shown it’s lack of respect for our laws, traditions and peoples of all walks of life and ethnic descent. 

So if the GOP cries foul, pointing fingers at the FBI? I have to question their motives. The GOP lacks the honor, honesty, gravitas, patriotism and heartfelt intent to help the whole country for me to take their claims of corruption seriously. 

The GOP is, IMO, a corrupt institution unworthy of making these claims of “corruption”. Unless & until they clean house and rediscover a path to moral legitimacy I cannot take their POV seriously.
