First sentence of TFA: In a famous dissent from 1988, Justice Antonin Scalia had some prescient remarks that seem newly relevant in the wake of an FBI raid on Mar a Lago, private home of former President Donald Trump Monday night, authorized by President Joe Biden's Department of Justice.

I've bolded the parts that are misleading, dishonest, biased, or just downright wrong. I don't feel a need to read the rest of the article.

"But there is evidence that Garland and his team are acting with partisan motives-evidence they themselves appear to have leaked."

Interesting that the article doesn't show, or even hint at, what this evidence is.

No.

Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.

The DOJ policy is to be quiet. Meanwhile, the jackals are running wild with conspiracies.
 
2022-08-10 8:25:23 AM  
Oh yeah... I'm going to take what this asshole says to heart:

Mark R. Weaver - Communications Counsel

Tell you what, get replace Justice Beer Bro with him and we'll discuss it.  I bet you won't like the next guy any better though.

And we are posting GQP propaganda exactly why?
 
2022-08-10 9:23:03 AM  
Lol really grasping at straws aren't they?

"Garland is partisan for uh reasons and suchforth"

GQP: Do what I tell you to do, don't tell me what to do.

Explains the entire outrage at the government doing its job.

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: And we are posting GQP propaganda exactly why?


We ran out of My Little Pony quotes.

This guy thinks the 1/6 committee is worse than 1/6, so his opinion is only good for lining birdcages.

At least have the guts to link the original Newsweek article so we can just ignore it, subby.
 
2022-08-10 9:25:12 AM  
Are Christopher Wray, the FBI field agents who executed the warrant, and the judge who authorized it also partisan hacks?
 
2022-08-10 9:25:19 AM  
I don't think the media should be advocating for seditionists.

Weaver runs a "crisis communications" shop in Ohio which has done business for 30 states.  He was once the Ohio AG.  He likes to be associated with famous people.  Couldn't read the article without looking for agenda.

That cannot possibly be true.

Unless you are, you know, a seditionist.

If the tens of millions of our countrymen who support Trump's re-election in 2024 see federal prosecutors and FBI as nothing more than partisan agents of the least popular chief executive in generations, our national fabric may rip beyond repair.

They shiat on the floor, now they get their noses rubbed in it.

Long-time Republican hack operative has shiatty opinion about holding Republicans accountable.

Stunning development.

Betcha Trump wishes Merrick Garland was on the Supreme Court right now.

There's a lot of that lately - it's the only way, it seems, some of this shiat's getting approved, by linking to another aggregator's presentation of a shiatty article from an already-known shiatty source.

I mean, I somewhat agree Garland should be removed and Frank Castle should be in his place as a temporary appointment until Steve Rogers finally decides to thaw, but, in the meantime, you execute with the DOJ you have not the one you wish you had.

Their fear is palpable.

And it's stoked constantly by the professionalism of a DOJ that refuses to leak or tip it's hand and instead simply, quietly, efficiently continues to investigate & gather evidence.

1) clicks
2) wank fodder for the right wingers because there hasn't been any 'children liquefied by superior ultra manly firepower' links (yet)
 
2022-08-10 9:35:21 AM  
I thought that Garland should step aside because Ain't Nothin Gonna Happen?
 
2022-08-10 9:36:17 AM  
Somethin' finally happened.  Right wing looses its shiat.

I love it.

"A Wordsmith's Work." Right up there with "Faster than the Speed of Love" on the list of most pretentious titles. Except Brian Griffin has an excuse in that he is a cartoon dog.
 
2022-08-10 9:38:20 AM  
I'm happy that Trump is being inconvenienced

I'll take a huge bong hit if/when he ever has to stand for sentencing, no matter how comically light the sentence ends up being

Cool, so we like Merrick Garland again now.

The fact that they hauled out the boxes they were looking for says it all, IMHO

The far left and far right seem to both equally hate him.

Republicans have become so corrupted that qualities like integrity, service, duty, and honesty are repulsive to them.  Sort of like vampires and crosses.

Everything I've seen has been written like this.  It's extremely concerning

I think of myself as far left and I did complain about the slow pace but I never wish him any harm.
It is my hope that he will turn into the juggernaut we need to save United States of America.
