  1. I was gone the last couple of weeks so I'm catching up myself. Doesn't seem like I missed much though. @TheSanDiegan is his usual emotional train wreck and @retrofade never met a conspiracy theory he didn't believe. Oh, and this story has as much credibility as the Mueller investigation and will end the same way.
  2. LOL. Why don't we keep it right on this issue in this thread? But really what's the point? I've already proven you wrong over Mueller, Kavanaugh, the Covington kids, etc. Only your lack of complete self awareness won't even let you admit you have been wrong. Nuthugging? That's the best you have? Dude, this isn't high school and I'm not a kid. You're embarrassing yourself.
  3. Anytime sweetheart. It’s hard to come off like the intellectual you think you are when you have been wrong for three years and can’t even spell the word cousin. Guys like you and @retrofade think you’re the smartest in the room. The only time that’s true is when you’re alone.
  4. How'd that Russian collusion go for you? Or the Kavanaugh hearings? Or all the numerous other smoking guns we've heard about here the last 3 years? Do you still want to punch people like you did the night of the election? You morons have been consistently wrong about everything the last 3 years but don't have the self awareness to look at yourself and realize how unhinged you are. It's hilarious to watch the idiot brigade of people like you, @retrofade, @akkula and ussr2001. You're never right but that never stops you. You've given me hours of laughter and entertainment. Thank you. I'll be sure to bookmark this thread for future use. Enjoy the next 5 years.
  5. How am I vitriolic? I never cursed or used caps in any posts about this. I never insulted anyone that disagreed with me on this issue. I laid out my position. If you can't handle that it's your problem, not mine. Your second paragraph is pure garbage. I never said that or lost my temper in this thread. Just because you don't agree with me is no reason for you to project about how you think I feel. If you don't like me or my posts feel free to ignore me.
  6. The only reason there was a press conference is because he asked the Register not to publish that info from when he was 16 and they told him no. So he got out in front of it. There would have been no press conference if they would have just not run that part of the story. Those tweets were 8 years ago when he was 16 and the register even said there were no tweets like that since. So you tell me how that info was in any way relevant to the story? The Register had the option to make this an issue or not. They made the choice to run that part of the story and King made the choice AFTER he asked them not to. I think it is a BS decision to run tweets that a 16 year old made 8 years ago when they found no instances since that he made tweets of that nature. Especially when those tweets had nothing to do with what he did now or that he had no other history of actions like that.
  7. I don't know why you are having so much trouble with my position. I don't think publishing 8 year old tweets made when King was 16 years old was in any way necessary to the story. You said yourself that "everyone gets that 16 is stupid". So why run it? It has nothing to do with who is he today or what he did. If those same tweets were made in the last 24 months then ok, I can see running it. But 8 years ago when he was 16 when there was no history of tweets like that since? Come on man, that's BS. You keep saying they were going to bury it. If they really wanted to bury it they wouldn't have run it pure and simple. He asked them not to and they told him no. That's why he went public first.
  8. Yeah, except for the one that supposedly was a smoking gun. That one he released to the public and showed nothing. Hilarious that you actually think this is new. Every transcript between conversations between the president and world leaders are handled the same way. Been that way for numerous administrations.
  9. No, they won't. The same posters here that fell for Russian collusion are the same ones here that now think they have found the smoking gun they've been looking for the last 3 years. The only poster that had any shame was Jackmormon. But he probably just is posting as one of his socks now.
  10. Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, was pranked last year by Russian comedians who offered nude photos of President Trump. Schiff thought he had been speaking with Ukrainian politician Andriy Parubiy, who offered potentially explosive information about Trump’s visit to Russia during the Miss Universe pageant in 2013, The Atlantic reported. “Before agreeing to take the call, and immediately following it, the committee informed appropriate law-enforcement and security personnel of the conversation, and of our belief that it was probably bogus,” a spokesman for Schiff told The Atlantic. The Daily Mail reported Tuesday that a member of Schiff’s staff continued correspondence with the pranksters via email, seeking the damaging material on Trump. The pranksters said they would transfer the material to Schiff through the Ukrainian embassy in Washington, D.C. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/adam-schiff-pranked-by-russians-who-offered-nude-photos-of-trump
  11. You just said it yourself. Everyone should get that you shouldn't be judged be things you say when you 16 when you are 24. The local newspaper didn't "bent over backwards". They made the decision to print what they did. What is there to mitigate? Those tweets weren't an issue until they made them an issue. They told King they found them them and were going to print about them even after King said he would erase them before the story published. He explained he was 16 when he tweeted and understands he shouldn't have tweeted that and would erase them. The paper said they were going to print that anyway. That forced King's hand. There was no need to include it in the story. The only reason they had any contrition is because of the blowback they received.
  12. Sure they do when it is deserved. This guy isn't rich. He was facetiously looking for beer money with a sign during Game Day. When people started donating he said all donations were going to the University of Iowa Childen's Hospital. That's when Busch and others matched the donations. He didn't take any money for himself. No, I'm saying he is 24 years old. His tweets 8 years ago when he was 16 years old have nothing to do with his actions. The guy had a joke sign, people donated thousands of dollars until he said the money was going to the hospital then it generated over 1 million. Now it is at 1.7 million. He never took a penny. If there was ever a feel good story this was it. Until they dug up tweets from when he was 16. Those tweets have nothing to do with what he has done and were 8 years ago. Is your position that everyone should be judged by their words when they are 16 and they should be made public? I think you have that the wrong way. The story is a guy that did a great thing had it tarnished because of cancel culture. He was trying to do a great thing for kids and his words when he was 16 had nothing to do with what he is doing today. Furthermore the reporters tweets were arguably worse. If the standard is that Carson King should be judged by his tweets from 8 years ago when he was 16 so should the reporters tweets and the Des Moines Register that employs him. If this is the game we are going to play then let's play. Does the Des Moines Register stand by their reporter? What about their advertisers? Should they advertise with the DM Register if this is the kind of person they employ? That standard was good enough to apply to Carson King it should be applied across the board. What King tweeted 8 years ago is not the story.
  13. Believe me, I try to avoid reading your nonsense. Your posts are like dog shit. I try really hard not to walk into either but sometimes mistakes happen.
  14. That's what I say to myself every time I read something from him.
