Mueller Reminds Congress Report Doesn't Exonerate Trump From Assassination Of President Lincoln

WASHINGTON, D.C.—In his 29-hour-long testimony to Congress earlier this week, former special counsel Robert Mueller was quick to remind lawmakers that his report on Russian interference in the 2016 election did not exonerate Trump from the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865.

"Now I want to be clear," he said, "that while this report did not find the president guilty of obstruction of justice or collusion with the Russians, it also does not exonerate him from the assassination of President Lincoln."

Confused congresspeople sat in silence, looking at one another awkwardly.

"While we couldn't place him at Ford's Theatre on the evening of April 14, 1865, we could not confirm he wasn't present, either," Mueller continued. "That is for Congress to decide."

One congressperson asked Mueller if Trump could be charged with the crime of shooting Lincoln in the head when he leaves the White House.

Mueller thought for a moment. "I don't want to answer that. But yes."
By the way UK, you have not been exonerated of being an antisemite.


Funny you sound just like the defensive dusty old bitch and the woman with impossibly large mouth at the 24 minute mark.

If any criticism of Zionism is equal to racism then I guess the israeli’s are free to do whatever they need to eliminate Palestine.
Because too bad for Palestinians they are in the way...

51% OF MASS SHOOTERS IN 2019 WERE BLACK: ONLY 29% WERE WHITE

Daniel Greenfield, a Shillman Journalism Fellow at the Freedom Center, is an investigative journalist and writer focusing on the radical Left and Islamic terrorism.

This tide of violence has received less media coverage because it challenges the false claim that, as a CNN op-ed once put it, mass shootings are a “white man’s problem.”

"I would say our country should be more fearful of white men across our country because they are actually causing most of the deaths within this country," Rep. Ilhan Omar claimed on Al Jazeera.

"We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men," Don Lemon had previously claimed on CNN.

"White Men Have Committed More Mass Shootings Than Any Other Group," Newsweek had argued.


The perception that mass shootings are a “white man’s problem” lingers around the country because white mass shooters tend to get more publicity.

Mass shooters have no particular ideology. Crusius and Betts were opposites ideologically. (Though both cared deeply about the environment.) Nor are mass shooters a white problem or a black problem.

Looking at the data from the Mass Shooting Tracker, widely utilized by the media, as of this writing, of the 72 mass shooters, perpetrators in shootings that killed or wounded 4 or more people, whose race is known, 21 were white, 37 were black, 8 were Latino, and 6 were members of other groups.

51% of mass shooters in 2019 were black, 29% were white, and 11% were Latino.

Three mass shooters were Asian, two were American Indian and one was Arab.

These numbers are if anything vastly understated. As many as half of the mass shootings that took place in 2019 thus far remain unsolved, but they often took place in black areas and claimed black victims.

White people make up 61% of the country’s population, followed by Hispanics at 17.8%, and African-Americans at 12.7%. In that context, white people are actually dramatically underrepresented among mass shooters, as are Latinos, while African-Americans are highly overrepresented.

I felt this needed to be posted because of some of the hot-takes posted here recently.

EDIT: Also logic dictates a nutjob shooter doesn't represent his political affiliation, be it Dem or Repub.

So there's that and then there's some of your other posts:
Yes I did re-post this from YOUR OWN source. If it was biased then you brought it to the discussion (if one can call you trying to assassinate my character a discussion.) Its interesting that of all the criticisms leveled against Israel in your article this is the one you jumped on, but I am not surprised. The targeted killing of terrorists sounds like justice to the vengeful (conservatives with greed, fear and hatred in the hearts like yourself) but its not justice at all. It's vigilantism at a national level and it condemned by many.

theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/oct/24/obama-terrorism-kill-list
nytimes.com/2018/03/07/books/review/ronen-bergman-rise-and-kill-first.html



Targeted killing is defined as a form of assassination carried by governments against their perceived enemies. Analysts believe it to be a modern euphemism for the assassination (prominent premeditated killing) of an individual by a state organization or institution outside a judicial procedure or a battlefield.

the-tls.co.uk/articles/public/state-sponsored-assassination/
cfr.org/counterterrorism/targeted-killings/p9627



Since the late 20th century, the legal status of targeted killing has become a subject of contention within and between various nations. Historically, at least since the mid-eighteenth century, Western thinking has generally considered the use of assassination as a tool of statecraft to be illegal. Some academics, military personnel and officials describe targeted killing as legitimate within the context of self-defense, when employed against terrorists or combatants engaged in asymmetrical warfare. They argue that drones are more humane and more accurate than manned vehicles, and that targeted or "named killings" do not occur in any context other than a declared state of war.

the-tls.co.uk/articles/public/state-sponsored-assassination/

Some twenty-six members of Congress, with academics, civil rights groups (i.e. the American Civil Liberties Union) have criticized targeted killings as a form of extrajudicial killings, which may be illegal within the United States and under international law. According to statistical analyses provided by Reprieve, 9 children have been killed for every targeted adult the United States has tried to assassinate, and, in numerous failed attempts to kill Ayman al-Zawahri, the CIA has killed 76 children and 29 adult bystanders.

Targeted killings by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also called targeted prevention or focused foiling, has occurred in the course of the Israeli–Palestinian conflict against persons accused of carrying out or planning attacks on Israeli targets in the West Bank or inside Israel.

The practice of targeted killing developed in the post-World War II period, throughout which Israel has exercised the option more than any other Western democracy, according to Israeli investigative journalist Ronen Bergman. This passes one of the tests for whether or not anti-zionism is Anti-semitism, holding Israel to a higher standard than other democracies...

Civilian casualty ratio
According to the Israeli Human Rights organization B'Tselem, which uses data independent of the Israeli military, Israeli targeted killings claimed 425 Palestinian lives between September 2000 and August 2011. Of these, 251 persons (59.1 percent) were the targeted individuals and 174 (40.9 percent) were civilian bystanders. This implies a ratio of civilians to targets of 1:1.44 during the whole period.

old.btselem.org/statistics/english/

I think you and I can agree that for Justice to occur, there needs to be a judicial process involved and it seems accurate to question whether Israel has been concerned with eliminating its enemies rather than concerned justice that is NOT an Anti Semite question.

I was in error in the statement that "Americans blindly support Israel" It is a blanket statement and i'll adjust it now to say Right Wing Christian zionist Conservatives blindly support Israel therefore it is unsurprising that american media is known to be biased.

A recent media study based on an analysis of 50 years of data found that major U.S. newspapers have provided consistently skewed, pro-Israel reporting on Israel-Palestine.

The study, conducted by 416Labs, a Toronto-based consulting and research firm, is the largest of its kind.

Using computer analysis, researchers evaluated the headlines of five influential U.S. newspapers: the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal from 1967 to 2017.

https://www.mintpressnews.com/new-study ... ia/254049/

Once again, to suggest that the US media is biased is NOT anti-Semitic

^Obviously you didn't read the Source link, nor look into it's legitimacy (rave reviews).

As for the other link... "HATE group"?? :lol: :lol: :lol:

That was a conservative-hating pinko who passed that judgement... oh the irony!

Here's what Wikipedia has to say about FrontPage: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FrontPage_Magazine

Some of their writings are biased to the right, just as your postings are biased to the left.

It might be true that FP hates Islamic terrorism

... but my linked article had nothing to do with Islam (so like wotdafuq dude!)

But this particular writer (Daniel Greenfield) is highly respected and unbiased.

Let me guess, you don't believe a word he says because he is a Jew born in Israel? :hmmm:

Exactly!

But the reason people keep debating this is because the Don immediately after the report was delivered (but not yet made public) insisted that he was completely exonerated by it. Which he of course wasn’t.

More irony!

He's "not respected" by Hamas! :lol:

(read below)

You got those quotes from from loonwatch.com! :lol:

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2012/1/19/1056337/-
Loonwatch unconditionally attacks criticism of Islam but they refuse to criticize the many, many Islamic clerics and terrorists who are hurting people in the name of Islam. Should a person have something to say publicly questioning the funneling of monies from Islamic charities to Islamic terrorist networks, Loonwatch is there to call them a “Loon” for even raising the question. That’s quite a clever system – a form of radical Islamic McCarthyism it seems – with the first line of defense being a blogoshere of misinformed infidels who will blurt out the word “Islamophobe” at the slightest mention that within Islam there might be a problem brewing. What a clever design.

And how does Loonwatch report on the many, many Islamic inspired hate crimes in the world today? By waiting for someone to say anything critical about them and then branding that person a “Loon”.

For what it’s worth, here is what WikiPedia says about the connection between Hamas and the Council on American Islamic Relations (C.A.I.R.):
(read the link I posted)

How does this relate to Loonwatch? Loonwatch works with CAIR by broadcasting CAIR's point of view. They are very consistent on this. Loonwatch is never in disagreement with CAIR. CAIR thanks Loonwatch in their "Hate Report".

Connecting all of these dots is deeply, deeply concerning. Here is the math: Out of the Muslim Brotherhood come a number of terrorist organizations including Al Queda and Hamas. Out of Hamas comes C.A.I.R. and Loonwatch becomes a mirror for anything that C.A.I.R. wants to convey to Americans about how harmless Islam is.
Why am I not surprised you get your info from them? :wink:

As for your previous link mediaBias (that "passed judgement" on Greenfield/Frontpage) here's what they are all about:

Amateur attempts at such tools already exist, and have found plenty of fans. Google “media bias,” and you’ll find Media Bias/Fact Check, run by armchair media analyst Dave Van Zandt. The site’s methodology is simple: Van Zandt and his team rate each outlet from 0 to 10 on the categories of biased wording and headlines, factuality and sourcing, story choices (“does the source report news from both sides”), and political affiliation.

A similar effort is “The Media Bias Chart,” or simply, “The Chart.” Created by Colorado patent attorney Vanessa Otero, the chart has gone through several methodological iterations, but currently is based on her evaluation of outlets’ stories on dimensions of veracity, fairness, and expression.

Both efforts suffer from the very problem they’re trying to address: Their subjective assessments leave room for human biases, or even simple inconsistencies, to creep in. Compared to Gentzkow and Shapiro, the five to 20 stories typically judged on these sites represent but a drop of mainstream news outlets’ production.
Like I said... irony!
