    I find it darkly funny that the whitehouse can assassinate citizens with less due process that it takes to remove someones press pass. Crazy times.

    Nothing at all funny about that, but I'm not sure what the connection is.

    The point is the our government has the power to drone its citizens to death but cant keep Jim Acosta out of press briefings.

    Well, it's good to know that there's an occasional line they can't cross. They shouldn't be allowed to deny access to adversarial reporters, even if it's not the worst thing they can get away with.

    I agree. Just find it strange that they can get away with one, but not the other.

    The assassination of al-Awlaki was an appalling abuse of the Constitution.

    Cindy Hyde-Smith also talked about happily going to a public hanging last week so she's hitting all the Mississippi beats.

    I've been doing text banking this election season. I have sent texts to people in 6 states and by far the most rude and obnoxious people have been from Mississippi.

    It was talked about a lot when it happened, but even the GOP didn't want to tie themselves TOO closely with a member of Al Qaeda. It was a an abuse of power, for sure, but there is a very big difference between an American who spent years recruiting for Al Qaeda, and a CNN reporter asking Trump questions he doesn't like.

    Of course there is. I think you missed my point. I was saying that its strange our government has the power to drone a citizen to death but cant keep Jim Acosta out of press briefings. (And im not saying he should be kept away either)

    I've been doing texting in Georgia and Mississippi. The Georgia folks were generally quite friendly. The Mississippi ones were decidedly less so.

    Abrams conceded

    Edit: she didn’t concede, rather acknowledged Kemp would be declared the winner.

    And im saying its just silly to compare the two. Jim Acosta isnt trying to raise arms against the US. There’s likely a lot of crap that the government does that is more egregious than banning Acosta... we probably don’t even have to think that hard to find some (like the second Iraqi war) But you likely brought up this incident because it happened during Obama’s tenure. And thatks just silly.

    Yeah, there wasn’t a whole lot of right wing call for Bowe Bergdahl’s due process.

    The CIA has concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the assassination of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last month, contradicting the Saudi government’s claims that he was not involved in the killing, according to people familiar with the matter.

    The CIA’s assessment, in which officials have said they have high confidence, is the most definitive to date linking Mohammed to the operation and complicates the Trump administration’s efforts to preserve its relationship with a close ally.

    Again, im not comparing one to the other. I would think it would be much harder to get the ok to drone a US citizen to death than to get the ok to keep a certain reporter out of the whitehouse. Yet one was done with ease and one was not.

    What does that have to do with anything? Bergdahl had a trial heard by a judge, he didnt do any prison time.
