Gcomeau is this the next President?

Another mysterious death of a FBI agent and his wife (murder/suicide) before testifying about the Clinton foundation! Nothing to see here, the Teflon Queen strikes again? Nothing sticks to HRC but people keep dying!

Except when it really, really isn't.

Like, for example, these ~200 statements by Trump.

Smr, you do understand that the first story in what you posted is actually "fake".

It links to a news story by the same people that admits it happened but claims it didn't because the purchaser backed out at the last minute, the story then goes on to say that there was actualky nothing wrong with being able to by an at15 in 5 minutes, or whatever the timefeame was.

I went onto that Townhall website at smr's suggestion before. Absolute looney tunes stuff with no connection to reality. I then had to scrub my PC as it tried to download various trackers and pop ups.

No actually truth by definition cannot be subjective. Subjective judgments are matters of opinion and as such are neither true nor false. They just, are.

You can say that it is true that you have the subjective opinion you hold, as the reality that you hold that opinion can be established factually, but you cannot say the content of a subjectively held opinion itself is a truth.

Setting that aside, it still somewhat astonishes me how people like smr look at reputable news organizations, scour the thousands upon thousands of stories they report on year by year for any hint of inaccuracy in some small percentage of them, and then when they find anything they even think might be wrong they seize on it and scream "FAKE NEWS!!!!" as an excuse to ignore all the other reporting they don't like hearing.... and then they point to a propaganda site like townhall.com as a reliable source.

I'm just going to ignore your paranoid delusional conspiracy theorizing about secret Clinton death squads roaming the country knocking people off and point out... yet again.... in the probably pointless hope that you might have something resembling an attention span and the ability to remember things that are told to you... that I CAN'T STAND CLINTON. So why are you directing that question at me you clueless wonder?
