Not at all an intended lie. If the board allowed edits more than a few minutes after posting. I'd be happy to edit it down to:

No, some are 'getting their panties in a twist' about the son, son-in-law and campaign manager of a major party candidate knowingly taking a meeting with a Russian government lawyer regarding documents obtained by the Russian government hacking the U.S.

Pasting the statute that corresponds to the actions outlined in the emails is pretty relevant to the conversation when you're trying to argue that the content being solicited is of importance instead of the act of solicitation itself. The bolding was to make it easier to parse.

Cool, let's say it isn't the hacked information. It's still a crime.

"§ 110.20 Prohibition on contributions, donations, expenditures, independent expenditures, and disbursements by foreign nationals (52 U.S.C. 30121, 36 U.S.C. 510).

(g)Solicitation, acceptance, or receipt of contributions and donations from foreign nationals. No person shall knowingly solicit, accept, or receive from a foreign national any contribution or donation prohibited by paragraphs (b) through (d) of this section.

(b)Contributions and donations by foreign nationals in connection with elections. A foreign national shall not, directly or indirectly, make a contribution or a donation of money or other thing of value, or expressly or impliedly promise to make a contribution or a donation, in connection with any Federal, State, or local election.

4)Knowingly means that a person must:
(i) Have actual knowledge that the source of the funds solicited, accepted or received is a foreign national;

(ii) Be aware of facts that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that there is a substantial probability that the source of the funds solicited, accepted or received is a foreign national; or

(iii) Be aware of facts that would lead a reasonable person to inquire whether the source of the funds solicited, accepted or received is a foreign national, but the person failed to conduct a reasonable inquiry."

On the north side, the corner near Harborside 3 and Pier Apartments wasn't super packed and had a perfect site line to the barge parked just off the water in front of the Hyatt. Easy exit as this was the outskirts of the crowd.

I'm surprised no one got hurt as all the folks on the north side of the Hyatt pier rushed east after they realized they wouldn't be able to see anything.

Post a link to one you can vouch for and I will read it with an open mind. But here is what I've found wheneve I make an offer like the one above: conservatives CANT provide a link to valid news sources that support their views.


This is hilarious, given that it was an ex NYTimes Pulitzer Prize winning reporter who was just fired from CNN for being responsible for-wait for it-fake news reporting!

And, no, the former great Grey Lady isn't just providing op-ed on the op-ed pages. It's all over the paper, every story is colored. I guess when your largest stockholder, Carlos Slim, hates Trump it shouldn't be a surprise. Or over at WaPo, where Bezos maybe hates Trump even more.


Not to mention, just today the New York Times quietly retracted their false claim that all 17 intelligence agencies agreed that Russia hacked into the DNC.

And just 4 days ago, they were snidely ripping into Trump over this, who turned out to be right AGAIN:

"In the Times’ White House Memo of June 25, correspondent Maggie Haberman mocked Trump for “still refus[ing] to acknowledge a basic fact agreed upon by 17 American intelligence agencies that he now oversees: Russia orchestrated the attacks, and did it to help get him elected.”

https://consortiumnews.com/2017/06/29/ ... racts-russia-gate-canard/


This is HUGE. You're telling me that only the FBI, CIA, NSA and Office of the Director of National Intelligence agreed that Russia orchestrated the cyber attacks??

The Coast Guard Intelligence and and Twenty-Fifth Air Force must know the real story. Can't wait to find out.

Yeah, I don't really understand your argument. Why should the same bands cost less money here than they do at the Kings Theatre? Just like White Eagle Hall I would never expect to pay less, but be happy paying the same for the convenience of location.

You either spent a few extra $$'s and a lot of your time (1 hr each way on public trans) or a lot of extra $$'s on an Uber and a decent amount of time plus $$ on the tunnel if you drove yourself.

Another total bungle. Normal rules are in effect: https://twitter.com/JCParking

At least Erie and Jersey were marked for no parking today through Weds to be milled. The best was the road crews using cones to block off entry to E<->W streets at Marin and Jersey leaving it nearly impossible to access the only valid parking spots.

From jeseycityupfront:

As for drinks — the Lutze will have a full bar along with 16-oz. $9 draft beers (Radeberger, Weihenstephaner, Leinenkugel Summer Shandy, more), $7 can beers (Lutze Amber Ale, Sixpoint Crisp, more), $9 wine/rosé, and $9 sangria. They’ll also offer frozen margaritas at $11. You can check out the full menu here (PDF). Drink prices are actually very reasonable considering the location and the view.


Are we really supposed to think anything other than maybe the wine prices are reasonable? Especially considering a week ago I could effectively BYO and sit in those same seats or continue to do so on any part of the waterfront.

On the second half, people are way too stupid to be able to handle moving from one car to another to exit.

No, I don't doubt that the place is lackluster. It was simply that there were three posts in a row from users with NAME### and fewer than 5 previous posts.

It has definitely happened here before, much like on Yelp, that a place opens and competitors or friends/family try to swing public perception through false reviews.

Gotcha. I was having trouble parsing that with Two Boots complaining about $200/yr.

Does that mean there are roughly 300 businesses in the HDSID and they would all have to contribute to this fund even if they're all the way down at Newark and 3rd or York and Grove and not open during these hours?

I'm all for some kind of change here. I don't think that closing the plaza really solves for anything.

That said, the $3000 number quoted in the article makes no sense to me. If we just consider "warmer months" to be May - September we're talking about 60 working days and 2 officers per day.

Are we expected to believe that these off-duty cops are going to work 5-6 hour shifts for $25?

FAR from isolated incidents, liberals are the primary perpetrators.

Like I said, I look forward to seeing more liberals get arrested!


Great article.

The first few items on the list reference hate crime "stories" shared on Facebook, not reported by actual news organizations. There are also two or three items on the list that reference what we can assume are white, conservative Trump supporters who attempted to frame the Black Lives Matter movement.

While I don't doubt that there are plenty of stupid people out there who are more than capable of committing the acts mentioned, there is a great sense of irony that you seem to be missing. This is exactly where the concept of "fake news" comes from that the president has co-opted to label unflattering, but factually accurate articles from proper journalists.

"Fake news" are the stories and sensational tabloid articles, very much in line with what LidBlog generates, that are shared via social media and get perpetuated through the groupthink mentality enabled by the algorithms driving your Facebook feed.

This benefits no one and dumbs down the general populace on both sides such that they don't bother to vet or validate anything they read. It is lowest common denominator nonsense that preys on our most basic psychology in confirmation bias.

For anyone interested, Lidblog.com, the source cited here, is behind such objective journalism as:

Presently, the danger posed by our disgusting media is amplified by the rats in the deep state.

Here's an example:

If the language surrounding the investigation remains florid and purple, if Democrats try to please their Trump-hating constituents by screaming impeachment and liberal media tries to garner audience by jumping openly and vociferously on the bandwagon, the Trumpians will respond in kind by stirring the pot through their media and their argumentation.

The result might well be violence. Not rhetorical violence. Actual violence. Actual political violence. Actual conflicts between anti-Trumpers and Trumpers. At demonstrations. In the streets. Of our cities. Political violence of a sort we haven’t seen in 50 years, and maybe haven’t really seen in this country in the modern era. Those who believe Trump is a unique menace whose threat to our democratic way of life will be met with those who believe the elites are using illicit means to oust the legitimately elected president of the United States.

This is not a fantasy. This is one possible future. And every rational person who cares about the future of the country should be mindful of it, and should work to forestall it.

https://www.commentarymagazine.com/pol ... iggering-the-coup-theory/


I agree with the general sentiment of the article but fail to see how it argues your point. First, it is an opinion piece that sites no individual instance of its underlying conceit. The closest it gets, other than the blanket statement about Democrats that you quoted, is here:

"Already pro-Trump voices on the right are calling the leaks that led to Michael Flynn’s firing evidence of an attempted coup d’etat. The fevered use of such terms is part and parcel of the way in which social media amplifies the melodrama of daily news stories."

My opinion of the problem is that we have a president who is fanning these flames through incendiary comments such as:

"The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People!"

There have been zero instances in which the administration, or anyone, has pointed to a specific story where one of these outlets got something objectively wrong. It very much feels that terms like "fake news" are used because they are simple, easily repeatable catch-phrases that lead those uttering them to think they've won an argument or are absolved of real debate.

i think said reporter would justifiably be fired if he called mrs obama or anyone by the "n" word or any other derogatory term. i do not think said reporter would be fired if he called mrs obama a hooker. and btw, some escorts are very hard working and respectable people. anyway, enough of the faux outrage.


As some one who refers to President Trump as scumbag... thanks for your impartial opinion of the libel of the First Lady by another hack reporter from the NYT.


It would be libel if the nyt printed this statement as fact. It was said in conversation at a party so it is slander at best, but you know as well as I that this dude's comment will have cause zero damages for the First Lady. Again, please point to the disgusting work printed by the disgusting media that actually matter.
