Re: “Danehy

Two classic Lying Tom article motifs in one: Brush with Greatness, and Hurling Racial Epithets at African Americans.

Lying Toms patent insecurity causes him to feel the need to constantly tell us about someone famous he had some sort of contact with. Hes like the annoying person at a party who is always trying to one up you by telling you about famous people they know or bumped into as if that will impress you and somehow makes them superior to you.

And what can be more racist than a middle age white guy deciding what is not acceptable behavior, employment, or set of beliefs for African Americans? In Racist Lying Toms world there is a monolithic set of actions, political philosophy, and values that he deems necessary for them to adhere to in order to be authentic African Americans. Let an African American step off of Racist Lying Toms plantation and he feels empowered to sling a racial slur at the person.

A nasty piece of work.

Re: “Danehy

A Trump campaign associate was sentenced last week to 14 days in jail. For what?

Papadopoulos acknowledged that his false statements to the FBI were intentional and were aimed at concealing details about his contacts with Mifsud. I hid many aspects of my relationship with Joseph Mifsud. That was wrong and it was a crime, the former Trump adviser said.

https://www.politico.com/story/2018/09/07/george-papadopoulos-jail-sentence-809381

But still no, now coveted Russian collusion. The length of his sentence is much like a DUI conviction. $28M spent so far. An awful lot of people could have been fed for that kind of money. I'm starting to grow weary of this.

Re: “Danehy

Hey Tom the internet is a bitch isnt it? Unfortunately I watched the rally live. Obviously you didnt. You lied about Trump's rally. What keeps us from believing anything you have written? This kind of calls into question everything you have written no? Confronting "right wing idiots" at firearms shows, grocery stores, on the street, winning prizes shooting free-throws at the county fair, etc. Actually if one reads your columns regularly it is pretty obvious to see what you are lying about.

Come on down-thumbers please justify Toms lying. Satire, comedy, intentional fiction? Please say Hey President Trump lies so .

Arent we reading daily about how the fourth estate is the savior of the country, above reproach, un-impeachable, unbiased purveyors of truth, and President Trumps attack on the media is unjustified and even unconstitutional? And yet Tom is the poster boy for a biased, willing to lie to prove a point journalism.

Come on New Times. Show us you are really about truth in journalism. I have been reading this paper for 34 years. When you first started the New Times you were all about being an alternative to both left/right wing journalism. Now you have become a bunch of partisan left wing hacks that dont really care about the truth, and you are now all about how Fox News lies. You have the facts before you. Tom said one thing. The evidence proves another. Show us you have some integrity.

Re: “Danehy

"Then Fox would show a crowd shot and, for whatever reason, they would focus in on this one toothless hillbilly, wearing a red MAGA hat and, obviously high on one opioid or another, constantly chanting "Lock her up! Lock her up!" I wondered if he knew that Cohen and Manafort are hims."

So here you go. Here is the Fox News coverage of President Trump's speech.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVIrt2fLNM…

I challenge anyone to find one time they cut away to the crowd during the speech. Tom claims it was multiple times.
Find one time when they cut away to the crowd and they focused on one person.
Find one time they cut away to the crowd and they focused on one person in a red maga hat.
Find one time they cut away to the crowd and they focused on one person who was a toothless hillbilly in a red maga hat chanting lock her up.

Lying Liar Tom. The Liar's liar.

Come on all of you 101 down-thumbers, defend your boy.

Lying Tom Danehy

Hey New Times, do you have any journalistic ethics and standards at the paper? Are you going to let Tom Danehy lie with impunity?

Liar.

constantly chanting "Lock her up! Lock her up!" I wondered if he knew that Cohen and Manafort are hims.

Liar or stupid.

Everyone knows whom the crowd was chanting about when they said lock her up. So which one is it? Liar or stupid?

Re: “Danehy

Another diatribe about the same ole same ole., with similar commenters and comments, yuk yuk. You have a bigger responsibility here than just repeating the judgements you and others have been yammering about for the last 24 months. There are no do overs Tom. Even if he's impeached, he'll never be convicted It's time to move on to another subject, lots of other things happening in the world, stop being lazy and get to it.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, you are very unkind in this article. You call Trump a misogynist, a bigot, a bully, a liar and a dumb-ass. This is insulting to misogynists, bigots, bullies, liars and dumb-asses the world over.

Re: “Danehy

It's not that Trump is dumb, he's not. Trump ups the ante with gaslighting, essentially rendering facts and truth to quaint notions. Alternate facts. Don't believe what you see and hear. The press is the enemy of the people. The economy is the strongest ever in history but we have to cut federal pay raises because they are too great a drain on the fragile economy. I never said that (despite there he is on tape saying that). We've had dumb presidents in the past, feel free to nominate your own but I will go with GW Bush. We survive dumb - the cards are in the air if we can afford Orwellian carnival barkers.

Re: “Danehy

You don't have to be a genius to see that Trump is a dumbass or that his Trumpuppets should have a swastika tattooed on their foreheads . They are willing to murder Democracy and honor Vladimir Putin with the dead carcass. Trump is using his nitwits to continue building the Trump brand internationally. The Trumparrots are wrapped up in their zeal for a leader who openly expresses his racism, sexism, and ignorance giving them the go-ahead to do and say what they have suppressed since the Civil War. Using reason with this army of cretins to convince them of their folly would be akin to stopping a mass suicide of lemmings intent on their own destruction.

Casey and H.W. Bush committed treason by making an arms for hostage deal with the Iranians. The Israelis transferred the weapons.

Mr. Small, Good news. It appears that Hunting Guy solved the mystery as to the article you read. It appeared in the ADI, and was co-authored by Jonathan DuHamel and a Mr. Briggs. Hope youre not too disappointed.

Re: “Danehy

"The unions financial support of Democrats is not new or unusual. What is news though is the extent to which unions have gone to hide the aggressively partisan nature of their expenditures."

This Forbes article does a better job of explaining the NEA's actions as it pertains to the use of membership dues.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/realspin/2014/11/03/big-political-spending-by-unions-paid-with-dues/#18651f5f4de2

I'm not sure why they go to such lengths to hide it.
