1. Unlike the Republicans (with the exception of Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger), the Democrats will fully participate in the GOP House hearings. The Dems will be asking half the questions. The Dems will use humor to point out hypocrisy to undermine the GOP efforts to prosecute the Bidens.

2. In the J6 hearings, the Dems went to great pains not to have the hearings appear partisan. The witnesses were Republicans and/or former members on the Trump staff and administration.

3. J6 was a not a hearing looking for a crime. The crime was an attempted coup. The criminal insurrectionists' attack on the Capitol was obvious. Undo influence on state level election officials by Trump allies was well established. In contrast, the Republicans will be searching for a crime that they hope to pin on Joe Biden.

4. The GOP House will spend a lot of time on pseudo-scandals: Hunter Biden doing drugs, Hunter Biden naked, etc.

5. The GOP House will embarrass themselves with their own hypocrisy. They will attempt to turn Hunter Biden's ethically-questionable choices into a crime. They will decry nepotism. All the while swearing fealty to the criminal enterprise known as the Trump Family. The media will report on GOP House member's family members with lucrative government contracts and cushy government jobs.

6. Unlike the J6 hearings which were about a crime against America and peaceable transference of power, the House will be investigating a private citizen. They will be outraged by Hunter Biden's tax avoidance all the while being oblivious to the Trump Organization being found guilty of 17 counts of tax fraud.

7. Republicans will demonstrate their misunderstanding of the First Amendment by whining about Twitter, a private business, and their decision to not run the Hunter Biden's laptop story. The Wall Street Journal made the same editorial decision.

8. The Republican hearings won't have the same high quality production values as J6. I will be surprised if any are aired in prime time. Expect to see a lot of Coatless Jim Jordan interrupting witnesses and pounding the table.

9. Republicans will whine that their hearings aren't getting the same sort of media coverage and Nielsen ratings as the J6 hearings.

10. The Democrats will get as many or more of the sound bites that airs in newscasts. In other words, the GOP will lose control of the narrative. Not surprising as the GOP goals were vague in the first place.

11. The GOP House hearings will have a farcical vibe. The ensuing lack of respect will drive MAGAites nuts.

    WOW! That was spinning faster than a top!


  2. by oldedude on December 11, 2022 6:22 pm
    Sorry. Of course it was. This is completely your "Feelings." Since it was what you "feel," it's not relative to fact. The flip side is that I truly think you believe everything you wrote. Fairness and the rule of law are not part of sheeples feelings. Only their feelings of what should be. The two are very distinct and if you can't separate them, it's very hard to look at fact. All you get is "perception."


  3. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2022 7:13 pm
    OD, which of my enumerated observations/predictions will not come to pass? You can just list the numbers.


  4. by oldedude on December 11, 2022 8:13 pm
    1. The GOP gave the chair two lists, they were refused on both.

    2. There was no chance for a cross examination

    3. The crime as stated by J6 members was to link Trump with the rioters. Thereby pinning him with an insurrection charge in court. That was an epic fail.

    4. Hunter and drugs, sheep, ponys, hookers, etc are of no concern. Although illegal, they're not federal crimes enough to worry about.

    5. We talked about the Trump family. You had your chance and fukked it up. Oh well. Get over it. Just like you've told us to not worry about hill. Hunter not registering with the State Dept IS an issue. Tecchnically, he was a spy for the foreign government. You're so worried about the little things. I even gave you the citations for you to look up the law, which (like I've said before and you mocked me) would have answered that question. The issue, like I've said at least a half dozen times, is that he was the person who chose the contracts. THAT makes it nepotism. Had it been someone else, I wouldn't have a problem with it.

    6.If Trump, Inc is found of Tax fraud fine. I hope they do it soon. This is a national security issue.

    7. It would be stupid for any twitter question to in this. It's the facts of the case that matter. I don't give a rats ... about twitter. Did it prove the dims manipulated the media for a furtherance of their agenda and to censure what the public knew about the case? Yes. But it's not the point. If they go there, it should be thrown out as a waste of time.

    8. I agree. The dims hired a PRODUCTION COMPANY to run the audio and visuals of the entire kangaroo court. More wasted money.

    9. That won't have any affect on it. I know you would love it to be, but no one cares either way. AND Polls don't matter in this, as much as you would like them to.

    10. Only in the MSM which the dims own anyway. They'll just pay for the MSM to only carry their side. What's so different about that?

    11. Again, there's no fact in that. At best it's conjecture. At worst, you didn't have anything else to say but you needed one more item. It's just stoopid.


  5. by Curt_Anderson on December 11, 2022 9:54 pm
    I will comment on your list OD.
    #1 Pelosi rejected just two members of Congress, Jim Banks and Jim Jordan. Both are election deniers and were potential defendants/witnesses.

    #2 That's because in a snit, McCarthy pulled all of the Republicans off the committee.

    #3 The J6 riots were one part, along with the BIG LIE, of Trump's effort to fraudulently remaining in power.

    #4 They may not be of concern as you say, but I still predict the Republicans will pontificate on it.

    #5 Get over what? We are pleased. Trump is facing Jack Smith's investigation and the one in Georgia. They relate to Trump's efforts to illegally remain in power. Plus there is the Mar-a-Lago stolen and mishandled classified documents case.

    #6 If?! He was found guilty on 17 criminal counts of tax fraud. You didn't hear?

    #7 It may be stupid, but that won't stop the Republicans from haranguing on the topic.

    #8 Hard to say if it was a waste of money. Especially considering the Democrats had the most successful midterms of any party in power since 1934. Not to mention they will be making criminal referrals to the DOJ. Election deniers in particular lost election bids.

    #9 You seem to agree that Republicans will whine about their coverage.

    #10 Again you seem to agree with me.

    #11 Of course, everything on my list is conjecture. We will need to wait about a month to see if my predictions happen or yours.

    OD,

    In your heart of hearts, do you think Curt's being serious? I really want to think that this is all tongue in cheek and that he's created a character based on some novel about life in Germany in the years leading up to and during WWII. There are points in your exchange with Curt that what he's posting seems so farcical that I want to think that Curt's busting a gut, laughing as he's typing. Then again, psychosis is a real phenomenon among humans and, if you choose to seek out lies and to promote them...you can destroy your mind.

    I'm not engaging him on this thread because I suspect Curt's pulling our legs. This is too far disconnected from life in the real world.


  7. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 5:51 am
    Yeah, it's a setup just to argue. I wanted to see what he'd say. I'm not sure either. And honestly, being pulled in by the Alinsky crowd is less and less an exchange of thought vs just being a setup.


  8. by Curt_Anderson on December 12, 2022 11:09 am
    What gives? You are stealing my #7 prediction while denigrating it.

    I can't wait for the day when Michelle Ma Belle sits in front of the GOP dominated Biden Crime Family Committee to answer questions about her connection to Twitter and other social media platforms. Hoohoohoohoohoohoohoo heeheeheeheeheeheehee hahahahahahahahaha!---HtS

    Donna tried to subtly point out your unconstitutional foolishness and hypocrisy. Are you not aware that FOX News has for years done of the bidding of the GOP? Trump makes no secret about his efforts to control the media and what is and isn't reported. FOX News and Twitter are private entities with First Amendment rights to publish or not publish as they see fit. It's certainly not the role of Congress to tell any media organization which editorial decisions to make.

    Of course you're correct Curt. And likewise MSNBC does the bidding of the Democratic Party. No one is ever going to be able to control that, not that it should be controlled anyhow.


  10. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 12:02 pm
    MSN (inclusive), CNN, Twitter, etc.

    Trump HATES Fox...except for Hannity.

    I watch Fox nearly every day. I'm not aware that it does the bidding of the GOP.

    In fact, as OD and pb have been pointing out, the GOP is the party of openness and inclusion and tolerance, diversity and freethinking. There ain't such a thing as a single idea that could be GOP bidding. Just ask Mitt Romney and Ted Cruz.


  13. by Curt_Anderson on December 12, 2022 3:14 pm
    Seriously, HtS, you are unaware that FOX News carries the GOP's and Trump's water?

    How much coverage did you see of the Trump Org. tax fraud guilty verdict on any of their prime time hosts' programs? (answer below)

    But you saw plenty from Fox hosts and guests promoting false claims that Dominion threw votes from then-President Donald Trump to Joe Biden in the 2020 elections. Rupert Murdoch has been subpoenaed to testify today in the Dominions' defamation lawsuit against FOX.








    *It's a trick question: there was zero coverage. FOX decided to not cover that story. OD seemed to be unware of the guilty verdict. See comment #4 above, in it OD wrote, "6. If Trump, Inc is found of Tax fraud fine. I hope they do it soon. "


  14. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 5:22 pm
    Actually, knowing the "system" much better than you apparently, I know there will be challenges to the verdict. Court isn't done yet, contrary to your wishes in the depths of your heart. It pays to know and understand how things work. Jussayin.


  15. by Curt_Anderson on December 12, 2022 5:52 pm
    Yes, Trump could appeal. In fact, he said he would appeal. The so called self-made businessman and tax expert is claiming ignorance of the tax fraud scheme and blaming it all on Allen Weisselberg (even though Trump signed the checks for Weisselberg's grandkids' private schooling, etc.). In the meantime he's still paying Weisselberg's salary who will be going to prison. Trump even through him a birthday bash.

    There needs to grounds for an appeal: like a legal error, juror misconduct and ineffective assistance of counsel.



  16. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 7:01 pm
    The point that your missing (or your putting your "feelings" in to) is these things take years to go through.


  17. by Curt_Anderson on December 12, 2022 7:18 pm
    Maybe the court cases will drag on. But there is a finite amount of time in which to file an appeal: usually 30 days.


  18. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 8:44 pm
    Yes. and each step there's a finite amount of time TO FILE on each level. Then, they have to find a docket. Then they make a schedule, which may be months, or a year. Especially in the appellate system. Unfortunately, I don't think this will be done by 2024 elections.


  19. by oldedude on December 12, 2022 8:55 pm
    "Seriously, HtS, you are unaware that FOX News carries the GOP's and Trump's water?"

    You would expect a sheep to say that. Trump refused interviews with FOXNEWS several times, because they didn't fully support him. He expected them to fall in line like CNN, MSN (inclusive), et al, do for the left. He didn't get that.


  20. by HatetheSwamp on December 13, 2022 3:58 am

    Curt posts more about what's said and done on Fox than anyone here. And. It's ALWAYS wrong!

    Bahahahahahahahahahaha.

    These days, FNC normally has more viewers than MSNBC and CNN combined. They've done that by having very tightly controlled editorial policies. Since about, say, April 021, Trump is never mentioned on Fox unless he's in the headlines and then he's reported on. He's never the focus of commentary...except for Hannity.

    I frequently mention TDS, which is real. Based on Curt's posts, there must be sources of FDS. How silly. How cute. I suspect that because Curt is so quick with quotes from and references to FNC. Every time I've been watching, Curt's either lying or exaggerating. And, I'm confident that Curt never tunes in on the FNC.
