In other words, the White House dares not offend Beijing

Some of the responses:

What part of his answer did you not understand? You went to all these private schools, taught in a private school in UK, and live in Virginia, and can’t understand that the White House supports the people (and not the government) of China in this protest?

How hard is it to denounce the leader of your Party dining with a white nationalist and an anti-semite?
Trump/Fuentes/Hawley

Pipe down there treasonous Insurrectionist. Your “peaceful protest” was an attempt to overthrow the government of the United States. We won’t forget that Joshua.

The runner says what.

The running coward says what?

FYI Hawley tweeted this while running down a hall.

Practicing.

And what are you doing to support them? Writing snarking comments on Twitter doesn’t count.

Especially from your home in Virginia.

You didn’t say anything when Ivanka got her trademarks from China while “working” in the White House.

There’s that.

Well, Josh, at least he didn’t say there are good people on both sides. Right?

No, it means:

“The White House supports the right of peaceful protest.”

Sorry you were running away when you said that and I couldnt hear you. Loser.

Little Running Insurrectionist says what?

Guess it doesn’t bother you at all that most people now only see you holding your fist up to incite insurrectionists then running away in the halls. That’s it. A cowardly, weak, pathetic, insurrectionist inciter.

The head of your party dines with neo-Nazis, white supremacists and anti-semites. Yet you remain silent.

Your opinion is worthless.

Shouldn’t you be running somewhere??

#RunHawleyRun

In other words, the administration gave the correct answer diplomatically and we cannot be seen as encouraging or fomenting an insurrection in China. Do you understand that or are you just trying to score political points as always?

Don’t you have somewhere to run off to?

We’re all just impressed you’re able to text while running, Josh.

St. Louis Comes After Lawyer Who Accused Them of Sunshine Law Violations
The city calls Elad Gross’ lawsuit “a publicity stunt,” seeks $25K in damages
By Ryan Krull on Mon, Nov 28, 2022 at 11:53 am

Elad Gross For Missouri
[….]
I sometimes sue the government on behalf of hurt people. The day before Thanksgiving, my government decided to sue me and start a negative media campaign in an Eric-Greitens-esque attempt to discredit my work.
I believe that the government should be accountable to the people it represents. A lot of folks agree, and that’s why Republicans and Democrats passed the Missouri Sunshine Law almost 50 years ago, so we could see what our government is doing with our money and in our name. But now, decades later, we have far too many government officials who think you and I shouldn’t see anything at all.
I represent a man who was temporarily detained in a St. Louis jail. Because the cell locks admittedly don’t work and the jail is unsafe, he was assaulted and severely injured. As part of our investigation, I asked for public records from St. Louis City. Over the course of a year, the City violated the Sunshine Law multiple times and delayed producing public records. I learned that attorneys, reporters, researchers, and other members of the public had similar issues with the City. I offered to help the City comply with the Sunshine Law on multiple occasions, and each time I was ignored.
As a last resort, I filed a Sunshine Law lawsuit against the City and several officials. Because of the number of violations involved, the lawsuit was very long and took considerable time to write. I again offered to resolve the dispute, and again the City ignored that offer.
Instead, the City and several of its officials decided to file an illegal lawsuit against me for daring to hold them accountable. They have asked for maximum monetary damages, including an award of punitive damages, which is not allowed in Missouri without special permission of the judge, permission they never asked for. They claim that once the City violates the Sunshine Law on a request, it can violate it as many times as it would like to without additional liability, a novel argument that I’m sure other lawbreakers would love to use in their cases too. Ironically, the name of the claim the City is using to try to shut me up and deter others from seeking transparency is called “abuse of process.”
The City spends a lot of its lawsuit disparaging me, saying that because I ran for Attorney General more than two years ago I should not be believed. I guess the City doesn’t want people running for office either, especially for an office that is supposed to police Sunshine Law violations. If only it did.
These City officials then shared portions of their work with the media in some weird attempt to discredit me. In their comments to the media, the government officials criticized me for… talking to the media. About folks – including reporters – being prevented from seeing public records. About people being assaulted in their jails! These City officials left out the fact that reporters approached me about the issues they were having, or that we have freedom of speech in this country.
Eric Greitens used to attack me for being a “Democratic operative” when I sued him for hiding records, well before I was a candidate for office. Josh Hawley, Eric Schmitt, and Mike Parson took their turns too. They all lost.
It’s a very sad time in the Show-Me State when some government officials act like they own their offices, like the people don’t matter. It’s a scary time when some officials are willing to use their authority and taxpayer money to silence citizens. In some states, these kinds of strategic lawsuits against public participation filed by the City are strictly prohibited. They should be in Missouri too.
If you’ve had issues with the St. Louis City public records portal online and are willing to tell the court about it, please feel free to reach out. Sounds like we’ll be in court soon

Bet on Elad.

Heh.

Ain’t nuthin’ in the world like a dsillusioned right wingnut.

Some of the responses:

Joe Scarborough @JoeNBC
Wonder if the Republicans who blamed Biden for gas prices when it was global forces driving prices up will thank Biden now that it is global forces driving prices down.

I would love to see this sticker at pumps in gas stations very soon!

Weird how that happened right after the mid-terms.

It’s funny how after the election they accelerate down.

Notice how after the election, gas prices are down and republicans no longer care about inflation?

Hey, Look!! The elections are over!

[….]

Just a few of the non-sychophant comments:

You have no honor and no integrity. But you know how to grandstand!

You condemn Dr Fauci but remain silent on your hero 45. He had dinner with a White Supremacist and a holocaust denier. How can you possibly represent all Missourians when your hero supports the worst in human nature and you say Nothing?

Yep … breaking on truth channel : feaux news . Eric the clown ! Are you having dinner with Nick Fuentes too ?

“Faux News channel, fascist groupies” – protest sign, circa 2003- 2004.

Funny you said they saved lives in a lawsuit against china, at the same time saying maks dont matter for all the lawsuits you pressed on locals… take your moronic hypocracy elsewhere.

This is the funniest thing I’ve read in months! Are you an eight ball of coke that somehow earned a law license and got elected to political office?

Heh.

“The truth shall MAKE you free.” Big difference. But you would actually have to know the Bible.

Am I the only one who knows that ‘allegedly’ means ‘no proof’?
Schmitt is trying to emulate that lying POS AG Barr, who lied about the contents of the Mueller Report.
Bullschmitt is just stirring shit.

Eric Schmitt is an idiot.

This comment in support of Eric Schmitt (r) is priceless:

truly a concern, I worry someone that was fooled into the vaxxx strokes out, etc while driving I use back roads often.

Because the pavement is in better shape?

Only three responses:

Your freedom is not dependent upon someone else’s oppression.

Freedom of religion is enshrined in the constitution already and has been held up and expanded over the past decade. Yes even in the workplace.

What. The. Fuck.

Are you fucking joking? America is nothing BUT religious freedom for Christians. Everyone else has to FIGHT for what you take for granted.

Get the fuck outta here.

Like a bad dream, she’ll be back.

Happy holidays.
