There are 3 major problems with anonymous sources:
- There is the possibility that they are completely fabricated. If they are real or not, they appear the same, with one exception. They have a tendency to confirm a convenient point of view.
- There is no way to challenge the source. While the source might believe what they say, it is also possible they are mistaking.
- The source might be biased in many different ways. For instance, if I were angry with someone, I might try to spread vicious rumors about him simply for revenge.
To be sure, there might be a grain of truth to what is said. It does make it easier to sell the falsehood.
There is one more thing you might note. The source might be completely truthful as far as it goes. However, the source just might be withholding, or is unaware of something that might cast a different light on the situation. let’s face it. We have all been stuck in situations when all explanations make things sound worse.
It is a common practice among dummycrats and communists to use half-truths. It is also a common practice among reporters and papers lacking ethics… such as The New York Times. The truth is, I don’t believe anything from the Times, not until it is well confirmed. This is especially true when they site anonymous sources.
At least sense Andrew Jackson, the Dummycrats have had a candidate running for president. Bernie Sanders is independent, not a dummycrat. Hence the dummycrat party will not have a dummycrat in the race.
Just a thought. I really don’t think Bernie will be the nominee. I will say this for the man though. He is honest as apposed to Pocahontas. She is on record with at least four whoppers. When the two of them had a disagreement during the most recent debate, I strongly suspect that Pocahontas was the one telling the whopper. I believe the poor woman can’t help but lie. I don’t know why. Most of the lies gained her very little. In the end, they cost her far more. I certainly would not want to stake my life, or my country, on her being truthful. It kind of scares me that she just might become president.
Which is best?
1. Dismiss the case against President Trump immediately. After all, they have not truly charged him with so much as one crime. After the case is dismissed, the Senate could call witnesses exposing the so-called whistle blower and Joe Biden.
2. Allow a full scale trial to go on with witnesses. The dummycrats have far more to lose with witnesses. After all, their presidential front runner just might be exposed of committing the very thing they are accusing the president of, abuse of power and quid-pro-quo. Indeed Joe Biden could end up in jail. Now that could be embarrassing.
Either way, I suspect President Trump would be the biggest beneficiary. He just might end up running all fifty states. Then again, probably not. Sadly, California and New York are too far gone. They would rather vote for a mass murderer than for President Trump. It just must be something in the water they drink.
I guess my preference is for choice 1, though it is really a tough choice.
Oh. By the way. Regardless of the means and methods, they really should serve pizza to the senators during the trial. I will help keep them awake.
Those who have read my past post will be surprised when I say that I hope the House impeaches President Trump. Understand though, if they don’t, he will be assumed, “not guilty.” On the other hand, if he is tried in the Senate, he will be proved innocent. And, to be sure there is a difference.
Besides, it will be nice to see many of his accusers squirm when put under oath, and on the witness stand. It will also be interesting to see how the mainstream media will paint it. Without doubt, many of the so-called journalists will be shown for what they are.
Considering all of the number of dummycrats in The House, you would think they could find one honest one to lead the impeachment investigation. Well, then again, maybe that is expecting too much. It does seem that knowing how to lie is a requirement for them.
At least, they should find someone with a a little intelligence. I mean, Schiff really made an idiot out of himself when he tried to lie about what President Trump said in the phone call. I would say he just outright lied, but that is not true. It wasn’t even a successful lie. It was proven to be a lie almost before he finished it.
It just goes to show. You cannot trust the dummycrats to do anything. They aren’t even good at being dishonest.
By the way, this another proof positive that can’t count on someone with a college degree to be smart or honest. It is also proof positive that you can’t believe anything a dummycrat says.
The dummycrats have done what they do best. They wasted $30 million on a do-nothing investigation. Now that it has become obvious, they know it is time to PANIC!!! Now they are trying all sorts of things to distract the people.
They have no reason to fear though in the long run. The media will do their part for them. They will spread their lies as the farmer might spread feed for their animals.
Well, there is one thing some of the dummycrats need concern with. Now that the investagation is over, the justice department can go after the real criminals.
Just heard the judge’s decision on Acosta’s hard pass. Immediately, I figured a good solution. Insist all questions be submitted in writing one hour before the conference. The selected questions could be read and answered. Conceivably, the questions could be selected at random.
What Acosta did during his his battle over the microphone was just almost assault. Had he gone just a little further, she could have sued him and taken a dollar or two home with her.
