  1. This is the tendency, and it’s deliberate!
    The names of the victims are immediately identified, whereas the names of perpetrators are not so as to allow the closing of files, or online postings, or deep-sixing of any other adverse information that might impede the ‘narrative’ or might favor the tracking of the perpetrator to the CORRECT SOURCE!!

    • This comment was in regards to an upstream posting which referenced a NYT report that names of perps were not available.

        This Jersey City story has disappeared.
        The perps and weapons used don’t fit the gun control/PDJT supporter narrative.

      • CTH readers will readily admit that Communists have never gained power, anywhere, and in all their history, by any other means than through targeted shootings. European History of the 19th and 29th centuries is rife with these actions that are catalysts to shifts in balance of power between the established order and the revolutionaries.
        Many worry about voter fraud. Me too. But nothing compares to the willingness to shoot and kill innocent people for political gain, and I affirm, with every fiber of my being that this New Jersey shooting is a DEEP STATE operation, and must be investigated as such!!

          If one was listening as this unfolded yesterday, the discrepancies are quite telling.
          Each time one of these instances occur, go to a live independent, local feed, police scanner, if possible, also. That will be the closest to truth you will ever hear. After that, it just gets all glossied up for us folks.

            Single largest problem with the official story is this. The first officer shot was responding to a report of “suspicious characters” near the deli (Wilkenson and MLK) and was shot in Bay View Cemetery….. the problem being the two locations are 14 blocks from each other. I’m in Jersey City, four blocks from the scene and details are scarce. This went on for close to 3 1/2 hours and quite frankly sounded like a war zone. I know a large number of you might be reluctant to believe this however…..this wasn’t just another day in J.C.

              Wasn’t one officer undercover and shot by friendly fire? Was this another botched sting or something?
              It sounded as if the fracas moved into the deli during the shooting, the deli may not have even been the plan. Possibly the synagogue or somewhere else. I don’t know Jersey City at all, and missed most of this. Just heard a few things yesterday.
              What is your take?

    On News Max just now, they said the Dems are still pushing the Impeachment and could send this mess to the full house for a vote this week.. If that happens will all of those people who won a seat in PTs states will they go ahead and vote with the Dems ? Just cant believe this has gone this far and every time the Right tries to straighten out some of it the left starts throwing more and more nuts in the mix.. Sure hope that PT and Barr can get to the bottom of this.

    What an incredible week so far, and Wednesday is only just beginning. Monday saw the release of the Horowitz report that completely demolished the Steele dossier and the upper echelon of the FBI. Having done that, it left the entire Russian hoax in smoking ruins. Then, Tuesday morning, we saw laughably grim-faced Pelosi and Nadler announce the articles of impeachment they hope to bring against the president. The articles have about as much meat on them as year-old cow bones in Death Valley.

    Then we segue to Hershey Giant Arena for the president’s rally last night. It’s a shame there is not an arena that holds 500,000 people, because he would fill it. The place was packed with red hats and Trump signs.

    House Dems Unveil Surefire Plan To Get Trump Reelected
    WASHINGTON, D.C.—House Democrats today announced a new plan to ensure Trump wins the White House again in 2020.

    “We hereby unveil these articles of impeachment, which clearly lay out the undeniable fact that we will not win the White House back next year,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler. “We have found Trump guilty of absolutely nothing, but we already started this whole process and it would look bad to back out now, so here we are.”

    “I declare here and now that Trump will be in the White House for at least another four years.”

    Some questioned if this was the best strategy, but Democrats pointed out that with four more years of Trump, they will be able to generate far more outrage than if they took back the White House. “It’s a lot more fun to be extremists and scream at the sky for years and years instead of proposing policies that most Americans support and actually win elections.”

        People like to think they are just smarter than him and PC/SJW culture make people also feel morally superior to people who don’t hold their views.

        BUT, since Trump keeps winning those people have to double/triple down because they look like the idiots instead. The ole conformation bias and media makes it easy to think Trump is an idiot, walls are closing in, etc. So people feel justified in hating Trump because if he goes down – then they were right all along. And therefore smarter than every single Trump supporter. They don’t care that they are fake charges, evidence, lack of legal anything. They just want it to happen.

        It’s a cult. That’s why Dems are constantly appealing to emotions and shunning people who show the wrong “group think.” They are cult leaders.

        Cult leaders also use projection, which is why the media have started accusing Trump supporters of being in a “cult.” Gotta deflect from the obvious cult like tendencies of the TDS infected DNC.

  24. THE FIVE-MINUTE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL

    PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Mr. President, would you consider it a breach of your oath of office to withhold important information from a foreign leader regarding a matter of national security importance merely because it might harm you politically or in an upcoming election?

    THE PRESIDENT: I certainly would.

    PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Do you believe Presidents should offer information or withhold information from foreign leaders due to political or electoral considerations?

    THE PRESIDENT: I do not!

    PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Do you consider Joseph Biden to be a national security threat?

    THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I do.

    PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Why is that?

    THE PRESIDENT: Because he admitted a corrupt act in a videotaped event that could endanger our relationship with Ukraine, as well as our commitment against anti-corruption measures in Ukraine for which American taxpayers have footed the bill, as well as severely complicate our relationship with Russia.

    PRESIDENT’S COUNSEL: Now Mr. President, let’s go back in history to a time when American politicians routinely went across the aisle to endorse for president a member of the opposition party, and let’s assume that Joe Biden called you a year ago to inform you that he was going to endorse you for president, would you consider it a breach of your oath of office and an abuse of power if you purposely withheld information about the corrupt act that Mr. Biden had openly admitted, even while you knew that this might imperil our relationship with Ukraine?
    THE PRESIDENT: Yes, I would?

    FTA – The House of Representatives approved on Wednesday a $738 billion bill setting policy for the U.S. Department of Defense on everything from family leave to fighter jets and the creation of a Space Force that has been a priority for President Donald Trump. The count in the Democratic-controlled chamber was 377-48, enough to send the conference report on the National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, to the Senate, where a vote is expected by the end of next week. Trump has promised to sign the legislation as soon as it passes Congress.
