Steve Scully suspended indefinitely over lying about his Twitter feed getting hacked...

on the date of his cancelled debate!

BREAKING NEWS: C-SPAN suspends Steve Scully indefinitely after he admits to lying about his Twitter acc't being hacked.

Dave (in MA)

Some actual news made it through AP:

APNEWSALERT: NEW YORK (AP) — C-SPAN suspends political editor Steve Scully indefinitely after he admits he lied about his Twitter feed being hacked

Dave (in MA)

Jussie Scullet

Dave (in MA)

I wonder if he cleared his mea culpa with the Mooch?

matt - deplore me if you must

I hope and pray that this scandal tips the election. The Streisand effect should light up social media and even the Leftist zealots are going to have to gag when filling out their ballots.

This may be the first time in history an elected politician is indicted before taking office ( I pray that he loses). getting Kamala out the gate would be a disaster of epic proportions for the country.

John S

Scully is more evidence, though none is needed, that Trump can do anything

Narciso

Just call him tupolev.

Ot in alaskam news ethan horowitz the mayor of anchorage and one and former gubernatorial candidate seems to have cunninghamed himself.

Ajit Pai has just made a statement.... boom!

Mark Wauck blogged recently why it was taking Durham so long. The Lipson article nailed it and I thought it was great. Release the documents now. Let the cases be developed properly .

C-SPAN suspended political editor Steve Scully indefinitely after he admitted he lied about his Twatter feed being hacked.

🤣

BeastsEngland

I guess I was a little slow on the uptake... :)

BeastsEngland

Pai is a badass. And I say that even though I died from Net Neutrality.

hrtshpdbox

Damn, Beasts, don't say that, that would leave me as some sort of algae or something.

This is supposedly the real Pauline Kael quote, which Vanity Fair thinks is somehow much better:

“I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don’t know. They’re outside my ken. But sometimes when I’m in a theater I can feel them.”

Thanks TomR... for some reason I still can't post a pic or a link here. It just disappears into the ether. Best I can do is quote a bit so someone can find it or put up a blurb for the same results.

ASOFB:

Biden's town hall, scheduled opposite POTUS’ town hall for tonight, has been canceled.
DAMAGE CONTROL ????

Can anyone confirm?????????

henry

Surprising no one.

clarice

Don't forget-- without any investigation at all, the CPD, CSpan and Chris Wallace vouched for Scully's tale ha had been hacked. My pal Yaacov proved immediately that was a lie.

Marlene

Ha. Dave we're watching Howie Carr's Newsmax hour and he is calling Biden "Pop."

Narciso

How is the. Chow in twitter jail.

lyle

the CPD, CSpan and Chris Wallace vouched for Scully's tale

Debased, abused crack whores have more credibility.

Good news from Florida voter registration numbers. GOP reduces the Democrat advantage from 2016 by 190K registrations.

Well, two out of three, anyway, since C-Span actually canned the dude.

All The Right People™ vouched for his integrity and honor...

Narciso


So marginally less foolish


https://mobile.twitter.com/mtracey/status/1316831966461915137

lyle

Okay, three outta three, per Ace:

C-SPAN has already announced that after a brief time-out, Scully will return to being a liar on their platform, suffering no penalty at all.

Social Media Opened for Hunter Biden Explainers from Washington Post and AP About the BANNED NY Post Story

Media: No, YOU can’t read the story about the utter perfidy and corruption of the Bidens. WE’LL explain it to you rubes. Any questions?

Tom R

I don't think Sasse has a realistic shot of getting the 2024 GOP nomination. It's too bad he can't be replaced on the ballot before the election.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/campaigns/exclusive-gop-sen-sasse-says-trump-kisses-dictators-butts-mocks-evangelicals

Sasse spokesman James Wegmann confirmed that his boss made the comments, saying the call occurred earlier this week.

Dave (in MA)
    Can anyone confirm?????????

I can only confirm that tonight's DEBATE was canceled. But that was using DJT's Peking Plague diagnosis as an excuse.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Well, when you also have your ringer moderator canceled from the debate... LOLOLOL

Dave (in MA)

Howie and Lewandowski are still talking about Biden on ABC tonight, so if it was canceled, it's not widely known.

Tom R

More good news for Trump from swing voters in key midwestern battleground states.

Dave (in MA)

Nothing on the cables, as Narciso would say.

hrtshpdbox

I don't think Sasse has a realistic shot of getting the 2024 GOP nomination.

If Mazie Hirono switched parties and declared her candidacy for 2024, Sasse would have a slightly better chance than her of securing the GOP nomination. Otherwise, he'd be dead last in any field.

Porchlight

Unless the news is just breaking in the last hour or so, the Biden townhall appears to be still on for tonight.

Captain Hate

Sassy Pants sounded like he was upsetting some people on the call.

Momto2

As if we needed any more evidence of Twitter bias...guess who's name is "trending" according to Twitter right now?

If you guessed Hunter Biden - Wrong!
It's Tiffany Trump! I'm sure whatever it is she's done it's comparable to Hunter! /s

matt - deplore me if you must

lyle, Hunter Biden has more credibility.

Dave (in MA)

Maybe Tiffany ate crackers in bed once.

henry

Not as if Racine Unified accomplishes anything by being open. Union gets paid to goof off at home for rest of year.

Seen on the internet:
See how effective the lockdowns have been! And as a side benefit, there has been a complete absence of elephant stampedes in Massachusetts this year due to the lockdowns! See what great leaders we have!

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Evidently Tiffany went out to celebrate in So Fla graduating from college and having a celebration and going out to a bar after.

So, like totes similar to Hunter cause she took a bath before she went out....

Porchlight

We have a battle going on the main artery closest to my house. There's a concrete curb on a corner, one of those triangular ones, I wish I had a photo. Someone spraypainted "TRUMP" on it a couple of weeks ago. Every night someone spraypaints over the TRUMP, and every day it gets repainted.

As of yesterday TRUMP was back up.

This is in a super liberal neighborhoood. :)

I will try to get a photo but you have to stop and take one and I don't want to draw attention to it/myself.

Narciso

Oh the huge manity

Since MM is not here,

Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrump

I will be doing a major Fake @NBCNews Town Hall Forum, live tonight from Miami, at 8:00 P.M. They asked me to do it in place of the Rigged Steve Scully (he is now suspended from @cspan for lying) Debate. I wonder if they’ll treat me as well as Sleepy Joe? They should!

henry

The all stars are in town

@kittylists

Linda Sarsour speaking in Wauwatosa today at "Jay-Z's Team ROC" justice rally for Alvin Cole. How many times is she going to be allowed to be involved in inciting unrest? What was she doing in Louisville? Do we have a justice system in America anymore at all?

I’m sorry, matt. Who? 😉

And that ass Scully blames Trump and Trump supporters.

Dave (in MA)

Hunter's laptop files include a sex tape.

Howie Carr Chump Line caller:

Joe Biden charges his own family a 50% vig.
He's worse than the mob.

Dave (in MA)

Scully will be working for CNN or MSNBC within a couple of months, tops.

lyle

And now a word from...

Interesting topic and timing, no?

’Maybe Tiffany ate crackers in bed once.’

I’ll allow it. Once. :)

Caller must be reading lyle on JOM:

So I’m a bit late to the revelation that the Sundown Shakedown Vig was 50% of the crime family income, huh? Nice gig...🤨

Momto2

Trying to bring up Tiffany in the midst of Hunter Biden's mess sounds very childish. "Oh yeah? Well, Trump's daughter did XYZ - SO THERE!"

Tom R

Clarice @ 5:17

According to the subpoena that was posted in the original NY Post article, the owner of the computer repair shop had to turnover Hunter Biden's computer to the FBI by 17 DEC 2019. Trump was impeached on 18 DEC 2019.

IMO the House GOP already knows the answer is Yes.

henry

I’ve seen Hunter’s notes refer to “Pops” and “the Big Guy” which are interpreted as SloJoe. I wonder if “theBig Guy” is Odumbo. He’s in the Oval Office “introduction” pics I’ve seen. Seems someone should ask.

Dave (in MA)

Rumors of a conveniently-timed Covid outbreak in the Biden camp.

Another Bob

Harris staffers are poz Dave. Biden too?

Another Bob

Trump is reading HBiden’s emails aloud to the rally crowd. LOL

Dave (in MA)

Dunno. Something mentioned on Howie Carr's show.

Dave (in MA)

Leaving off the link it refers to...

    Do you see what this idiot making videos in his mother's basement just did? With #ByeTiffany - this loser actually just showed what an open economy (Florida) looks like compared to shut down economies like NY and California. You can enjoy your life in a red state. What a dummy

Elliott

Should the next installment of The deBasement Tapes be entitled Bakchich Better or Kickback Better?

Tom R

If there were emails on Hunter Biden's computer that were smoking gun level of proof of quid pro quo corruption between the Obama administration and the governments of Ukraine and China, then I am fairly certain that when the FBI acquired Biden's computer the contents of the hard drive got slapped with a TOP SECRET classification designation. Incriminating evidence like that has an obvious impact on both national security matters as well as a criminal investigation.

Since we know Rudy has been sitting on this bombshell for a while, I think there is a good chance that Team Trump was waiting for the perfect time to release it. I think Trump's declassification order last week not only applied to the Russian hoax and Clinton email server, but also the contents of the Hunter Biden notebook.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

The "Big Guy" is mentioned immediately after "J" who is James Biden and who is to Joe Biden as Billy Clanton was to Ike.

And I still think this “10 held by H for the big guy?” is the most incriminating thing so far. The other thing is 50% of something, but what?
This was 10% of a deal directly funded by the ChiComs and held by Hunter for Joe to hide his ownership.

Dave (in MA)

When I go to Twitter right now, I get "Something went wrong." Specific URLs seem to work OK, but other than that, "Something went wrong."

Dave (in MA)

Something is technically wrong.
Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.

Elliott

Baksheesh, for those who haven't rid themselves of the serf's collar of orthography.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--"I believe that this rush, sham process is a disservice to our committee," Blumenthal said. "There has never been a nomination in an election year after the month of July."--

Guess the old bat should have croaked sooner.

henry

If things that never happened before are a sham, what of ACA and nude greed eel?

Another Bob

Dave, I can’t tweet/reply/retweet at all at the moment.

John S

Clarice, or anybody, how did someone "prove" that Scully's hack claim was a lie?

John S

On Howie Carr they are saying that Twitter is down

clarice

Yaacov did--I quoted his work and method in Sunday's column. Yaacov told me this afternoon that if Scully had not admitted this by the end of business on Friday "Otherwise the event logs were going to be published."

cathyf

Iggy, I think that "the big guy" is probably Joe, but also think that it might just be Obama exercising droit du seigneur over his vassal's pelf...

John S

Thanks much Clarice. I'll read your column

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Can anyone think of a more low life, white trash piece o' shit in American political life in the last few decades than Hunter Biden?

clarice

Yeah, Iggy, his father.

Another Bob

Um, what?

“FBI Director Wray said FBI agents destroyed Hunter Biden's laptop. They never counted on the store owner making a copy of his hard drive.”

John S

The importance of what that computer repair store owner did cannot be overstated

matt - deplore me if you must

hoo hoo hoo.....destroying evidence? Thees does not look good for Señor Wray....

Dave (in MA)

John S | October 15, 2020 at 06:02 PM
Proof by assertion.

Porchlight

Can't wait until Wray is fired.

I agree, John S. I hope he's protected. Having already handed over his evidence should help - but it didn't help Seth Rich.

And there is always punishment/vengeance as a motive.

henry

Iggy, pick a Kennedy (MA flavor). Any Kennedy. Or for that matter a Clinton.

Porchlight

New emails will be released on Tucker tonight.

That's right after Trump's townhall.

I almost want to watch Biden's townhall, if it's still happening, just to see if he's confronted at all. I assume he won't be but you never know.

Dave (in MA)

Tucker is on at the same time as the town hall, I believe.

clarice

Ab, the only place I can find that is from a tweet by some anonymous guy. Not credible and not worth passing on.

Dave (in MA)

Is Twitter down in the normal sense of the word, or is it down like the Chinese video feed when Pence is talking?

Porchlight

Ah yes, thanks Dave (in MA). I'll watch Trump and look for Tucker highlights afterwards.

henry

Dave, downdetector suggested global crash.

Porchlight

.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

In light of the 50% comment and the fact that if the big guy is Barry then Joe was left out in the cold by his family's graft I think it's safe to assume the very small man Hunter would call the very small man from whose loins he did spring "the big guy".

If it was Barry they would have let Reggie Love hold his pelf.

Dave (in MA)

Twitter working again.

henry

Iggy, true. Yet the amount held was only 25% of the family take.
