No it isn’t. Power players of all types tend to get their circles and inner circles of people and stay together through the years. You see it in politics, business, entertainment and elsewhere.


Yeah, that applies pretty neatly to your beloved Trump.

Hardly my “beloved Trump “ and yes the example I gave absolutely includes him. Fairly certain most of you would similarly point such things out were the situation reversed.

Nothing quite like having your unreleased book be discredited on a live radio broadcast because you don't know what you are talking about.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m00057k4

A former advisor to Bill Clinton and Al Gore may have set a record for fastest discrediting of a book when a BBC interviewer showed her the central thesis was based on a misreading of legal terminology.

Naomi Wolf’s book, “Outrages: Sex, Censorship, and the Criminalization of Love,” which is not even out for another month, makes the claim that the British government continued to execute people for sodomy long after it was previously thought the practice ended. Wolf looked at records from the Old Bailey and saw the term “death recorded,” a term she realizes in this interview actually refers to cases in which a sentence of death is passed but suspended. Wolf claims to have found “several dozen executions.” Her research, she claims, “corrects a misapprehension that is in every website that the last man was executed for sodomy in Britain in 1835.”

“I don’t think you’re right about this,” the BBC’s Matthew Sweet replied to her in the interview.

The presenter pointed to the case of Thomas Silver in 1859. Wolf claims in her book that Silver was executed, but he was not. “Death recorded” meant that a judge used judicial discretion to suspend a death sentence, a practice in use since the 1820s.

“I don’t think any of the executions you’ve identified here actually happened,” Sweet added.

Sweet also added that the offense in question hardly makes a good example of same-sex love being criminalized, as it involved a 14 year-old’s “indecent assault” on a six year-old boy.


But aside from her being clueless, and lacking of "facts" that actually are true, I'm sure it is a great book.

So, she's about as reputable as most conservative journalists?

China is pumping tons of banned chemicals into the air

But...but...but didn't China signal their grave concern over the environment with their signature on the Paris Accord? Want to guess at how they are doing with those goals?

Far less as reputable as them, and perhaps on the level with most liberal journalists.

When is the last time you saw a conservative author get embarrassed by themselves like this?

Well documented best sellers by conservative authors like Mark Levin, Greg Jarrett, Dan Bongino and others never have this sort of problems.

What story? Jussie Smollett? Nobody cares. Jail him, jail everyone, nobody cares.


Oh bullshit. The Chicago Police cared as they had a solid case. The protection racket cared enough for a high powered lawyer with connections bothered to intervene. The DA cared enough to go out of her way to provide unequal justice for a sacred cow AND seal the court records.

I suspect people trying to claim they are victims of possible hate crimes in the future will care because there will be a question as to whether it is just another set up.

I suspect some Hollywood folks care because despite all their claims of supporting Jussie their show has been cancelled.

I suspect anyone in the justice system being punished for a criminal charge while knowing there are other special snowflakes and sacred cows who did the same or worse and walked with no consequences - Biden’s druggie son for example- care because there isn’t the equal justice under the law that is supposed to be there.



Ah... The "protection racket".

Nice dogwhistle. Is the same one you use to call your victim's into the basement?

Meanwhile, a certain company was fined $500 million for fraud and no one went to jail or lost their job.

They are such an embarrassment no one needs to bother with them. Better off receiving political commentary from Garfield.

Mark Levin! :lol:

You're right. Nobody ever considered Master Shake's voice actor, Alex Jones lite, and Dan Bongo to be reputable in the first place. Tall trees fall hard, weeds just get smushed.
