"Robert Mueller is superb choice to be special counsel. His reputation is impeccable for honesty and integrity. Media should now calm down" - Newt Gingrich then
"Robert Mueller is corrupt" -Newt Gingrich now
Remember folks, if Mueller is fired, we take to the streets in protest. This is a blatant attempt to subvert the rule of law.
and in reality:
Newt is a piece of shit now, Newt was a piece of shit then, and Newt has been a piece of shit his entire career. Fuck that lizard fuck.
I so hope Fox News is implicated in all this. There has to be some co-ordination.
Rupert Murdoch chatting to Donald every week, Rupert's ex-wife now dating Vlaidimir Putin ...
thread full of details here:
I love how the Marine self-identified Republican is supposedly a partisan hack. These guys just refuse to acknowledge any type of objective truth that gets in the way of their partisan beliefs.
Edit: removed ex-
There's been one planned for months in the event it happens. If it's before 2pm, the marches start at 5pm. If it's after 2pm, they start at noon the next day.
I have been thinking this also. We will need to have massive protests nationwide
Fox is an extremist organization who should not have broadcast license. Its about as credible as ISIS's news network.
He is connected to Russian mob money and Trump tower himself.
Fox has quite a history of slandering decorated Vietnam vets...
Robert Mueller's Oath:
I, Robert S. Mueller do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
Sean Hannity's oath:
They're totally in cahoots. My question, is what is their punishment for doing so once this is all over.
Fear for their lives? No, there's something more effective: a general strike. Just grind the whole motherfucking country to a halt.
Not just Mueller, they went after FISA court today too. It didn't much coverage, but republicans today were calling it a rubber stamp court during Wray's testimony. They used to hate that when others would do it. Once it gets really bad I bet they start going after the judges.
Probably initially thought things were OK because Mueller is a republican. Didn’t realize he actually cared about his country and the rule of law unlike most republicans.
They need to go for Murdoch.
These d-bags calling the investigation a 'coup' would have started trying to impeach hillary before her hand was even off the bible. Shut up, hypocrites and let the investigation do its thing. If Mueller doesn't get trump (which is likely unfortunately) you'll be singing a very different song.
After nearly three years in federal custody, a racketeer who was convicted of running an international gambling and money laundering ring in partnership with a notorious Moscow crimelord is now living under house arrest on the 63rd floor of Trump Tower, three floors down from Trump’s penthouse, which is still home to First Lady Melania Trump and the couple’s 11-year-old son.
Vadim Trincher, 56, pleaded guilty in 2013 to running what a federal prosecutor called “one of the biggest bookmaking operations in the world,” an international racketeering enterpise that, beginning in 2006, laundered a total of approximately $100 million in gambling proceeds. Of that amount, $50 million was transferred into the U.S., often through a series of shell corporations in Cyprus that would issue phony loan agreements
Following a leak from an upstairs apartment (not Trump’s), the Trinchers filed an October 2012 lawsuit claiming that water had irreparably damaged custom designed wall panels that would cost in excess of $5 million to replace. A rare silk rug worth $150,000 was also ruined, the Trinchers said. Damage to the condo, the couple added, forced them to cancel a fundraiser they had planned for Newt Gingrich, then a Republican presidential candidate (the Trinchers had previously donated money to the Republican National Committee, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, George W. Bush, John McCain, and Lindsey Graham).
I signed up for this. Please everybody sign up. It gives some advance sense of how much interest there is.

GOP is a regressive hate group
The qualifiers seem to fit across the board.
Edit. A word.
And featuring sleazy draft dodgers like Ted Nugent and Donald Trump.
Protests don't do shit. They need to fear for their lives.
Actually it could be argued that 90's Newt is the reason our country is fucked now.
This is fucking scary. We are talking about a man of integrity, respected by Democrats and Republicans prior to this. And even now, Trump's own FBI has confidence in him. And yet, Donald Trump has the power to slander the man.
Fox News is the disease.
And that's terrifying since they have the power to shut this all down and literally destroy Democracy.
He said he would get waterboarded for charity.
Did Nazi propagandists end up at Nuremberg? or did they get free passes? looking at you Sean Hannity
Seriously. The dude is eskimo brothers with Putin. They're working together.
each time a right wing positioning finds itself in full diametric opposition from its original coordinates, an angel gets its wings.
Same mistake they made with Comey. Mueller and Comey aren't politicians or elected officials. They have a job to do.
People like to say politicians work for the people, well, when the people you work for are dumbfuck inbred hicks who will swallow whatever tripe you shovel down their throats, you only work for the limits of your own imagination.
"Mueller is corrupt. The senior FBI is corrupt. The system is corrupt," he told Laura Ingraham on Wednesday night. One hour earlier, the banners on Sean Hannity's show read "MUELLER'S PARTISAN ATTACK TEAM" and "THE DEEP STATE," so even if viewers had the volume down, they still saw the message. Channel surfers who stumbled on Fox by mistake might think they had landed in an alternate universe.
I'm sorry, it's hard to read shit like this and come away with any other interpretation than that these people are evil.
They have brainwashed an enormous chunk of the population who are no longer grounded in reality. They have an insane amount of power, arguably the foundation of the biggest threat to this country.
I'm going to live in DC if he's fired. I'll make it my daily job to march in protest. (I'm retired so I can actually follow thru on this; it's not empty promises.)
How much does a 10 year old account go for?
I keep seeing the criticism that its a rubber stamp court and they'll point to the rate at which warrants are granted. But whats more likely? The judges grant warrants indiscriminately on every case, or the prosecutors who appear before the court are professionals working with a known legal standard they are required to meet?
And if you think the FISA courts have too much authority, that is fine, but don't conflate it with this investigation. Its a completely different issue.
Petition to rename the network to "Foxiganda"
It's working, if anyone was curious. I work with a lot of very far right Alex Jones types, and I've heard them all ranting about "that Clinton lover Mueller".
Even if Mueller produces iron clad evidence, it will not matter to a large section of the country.
Goebbels chickened out and suicided rather than face justice.
edit: I did find out about Julius Streicher, who was a newspaperman that was executed for propaganda.
I call it Faux News.
Now I'm not in a position where I could afford to take even a day off work. What would be amazing to see, but I have no idea how the logistics of this would be even remotely doable, is everyone getting together and those that can afford it out money into a slush which people could use to compensate for the time off work needed to bring everything to a halt. Hell, one really wealthy person could do this
Edit: apparently half of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. There are about 130 million adults in America. Ideally I make about $135 a day after taxes (am paid per piece), so let's just say $200 for an easy number (lots of factors that doesn't take into account). That's $200 * 65 million people which comes out to $13 billion. Basically we'd need someone from high up on this list (who is down with the cause) to help us out.
The first quote is verbatim from a Newt Gingrich tweet. The second is not. Gingrich has stated his opposition to the special counsel on twitter though. Source: http://theweek.com/speedreads/705142/newt-gingrichs-stance-special-counsel-robert-mueller-give-wh...
Edit: I’m being told that Gingrich may have said “Mueller is corrupt” on a Fox News interview last night but I have been unable to find a clip as of now.
Fox is anti-American. They are absolutely as low as you can go at this point.
You're absolutely right.
Mueller is the red line.
Agreed, Fox news has been cashing the fuck in on all of this, needs to be punishment
Now why wouldn't Mueller get Trump?
It really cracks me up that people will buy into this nonsense and become so stunningly hyperbolic about it, yet completely ignore the mountains of evidence against Trump and his people.
Lol what an obviously odd account. I went all the way to the first post 10 months ago about an acorn video. 1 post -100 comment. Totally normal American human.
Some 8000+ days ago
It isn’t just Mueller, they’re going all in on the FBI harder than they ever have before. I think it’s because the investigation is tightening.
To borrow a line from Trump. I don't know if there's anything that can be done. But you know, those second amendment people, maybe they might have a solution.
This is part of what unions are for. They have funds for strikers so they don't starve or lose their houses. But unions have been largely eliminated from the private sector workforce.
It's incredible watching what stories each news program leads with between CNN, MSNBC and FOX. CNN and MSNBC seem to have similar takes of the days hot news, whereas FOX NEWS can inexplicably drag up something a couple days old to be their first story of the day.
If this investigation gets shut down and congress does nothing, I don’t see peaceful protests accomplishing anything
Rupert Murdoch cannot die soon enough. His kids seem less evil.
Just take that Newt Gingrich clip and all the others from the GOP that say that Mueller is impeccable and make it into a commercial to play during peak Fox News time.
Not sure how they're even allowed to spew this propaganda. It's literally advocating treason and a threat to democracy.
Fun fact, Goebbels murdered his whole family before he committed suicide. What a stand-up guy!
ISIS News: Bringing you the most explosive headlines.
Fox means Fuck Others Xtrahard. Who watches Fox? Old People. These are the fascists that stole our benefits and gave us the debt. And now they want to keep women lower than slaves because their religion and this guy says so? They are sucking up to this ADMITTED edophile. Fuck that!
*Marine ...there fixed it. Once a Marine always a Marine. You are right in your statement though
Has anyone ever investigated if he has ties to Russians? He certainly seems hell bent on destroying the United States.
Strikes/protests are a completely different animal if you have them organized vs doing it yourself. This is one of the strongest functions of unions.
Kind of a weird example, but my high school had a walk-out my Junior year for various reasons (the major ones being the achievement gap, and our principal being a racist bitch). In the days leading up to it, the student body was told those attending would be marked as an unexcused absence. When it became evident that 90% of students were going to participate, they realized they couldn't punish the entire school, so it kind of just happened with no repercussions.
Well yeah. Alex Jones is a conspiracy theorist. If they believe him, they will literally believe anything.
Then it looks like a billionaire is paying people to protest.
"Propaganda arm of the political party seeks to undermine national institutions in bid to keep funding source"
We must protect Mueller!
To clarify, "ex-Marine" is very disrespectful because you have to be kicked out to be an "ex-Marine." "Retired marine" is the preferred term.
Please feel free to correct me if I'm mistaken on any of this. I am not a member of the military.
BTW: It was change from grossly negligent not criminally.
Unless there's a money trial on him, I don't see what law influencing an idiot could get him.
I think he means even if Trump is shown beyond a reasonable doubt to be guilty but if congress doesn't impeach him anyway.
revoke press passes. they arent journalism anyway.
