Conservative commentator and Fox News analyst Brit Hume added to the pile-on of criticism facing NBC political director Chuck Todd after he touted a letter that compared the story of Noah's ark to a "fairytale.""I wonder if Chuck Todd also thinks this is a 'fairy tale,'" Hume tweeted Monday night, along with a picture of CNN reporter Jake Tapper's Hanukkah celebration.

That letter encapsulates every atheist troll comment you find on any conservative blog. It is BS as are the troll comments.

There were times when the most “up-to-date science” included belief in phlogiston and in spontaneous generation. A little more humility might be in order.

Every notable ancient culture had an account of a great flood. Examination of human mitochondrial DNA has revealed that the world population of humans experienced a cataclysmic 'bottleneck' tens of thousands of years ago with even non-Christian scientists stating that the worldwide human population may have been reduced from many millions down to as little as 'a few families'. Yet, scientists always point to some other cause for this because... well... it's just a Bible story. The reduction in human population has been proven.

So, while Chuck Todd wants to pretend he's being fair and balanced in his coverage of the news, and wanted have a program about fake news and disinformation, he should start by looking at how he, NBC, and other news outlets have been actually covering the last 3 years. It would seem they have determined that they will protect their sources for scoops and leaks, instead of covering possibly the largest story of their lifetime(s). They KNOW that Trump was not a Russian asset, that the many "bombshell" reports were simply false, but decided to run with them, instead of digging a bit more, and realizing there was a group of individuals who concocted a story, and were using the power of the government to spy on, and later use a highly partisan investigation team to remove a duly elected President (and likely to cover up the shenanigans of the previous administration spying activities - Comey, Brennan and Clapper were all political appointees of the previous administration). The problem for the MSM, they would be biting the hand that feeds them their stories, so they decided they needed to go along, I suppose. Under the impression it would end quickly, and no one would know anything. However, as it's dragged on, more and more has been exposed, and now the Durham prosecutions (he's not simply investigating or issuing a report) are moving along which will does not look too good for many of those top-level people from the previous administration.

Funny thing Chuckles, I see the belief that you can get more of something by punishing it to be a fairy tale. I see the belief that bovine flatulence can make a significant contribution to the destruction of planet earth to be a fairy tail. And like you, I believe people vote for "progressives" based on those fairy tales. But Chuckie, there's one enormous difference, I may not be able to prove my beliefs are incorrect but you cannot prove they are not. However; I can prove your beliefs are flat out wrong and based on fraud.

Todd is a third rate pseudo-intellectual. It even comes across the TV screen that he is just not that smart. MTP is a waste of time. Tim Russert also was a close-minded Democrat partisan but he was at least likeable.

President Trump and Barack Obama are locked in a dead heat as 2019’s most admired man, according to a new study that underscores the political divide in America. It was Trump’s first time earning the distinction and his predecessor’s 12th.The Gallup poll, conducted each year since 1948, asked Americans to name which man and woman living anywhere in the world they admire most.Of the people surveyed between Dec. 2 and 15, 18 percent of respondents named both Obama and Trump. But the results were predictably split along party lines — with 41 percent of Democrats naming Obama and 45 percent of Republicans choosing Trump.

Wilson, a deeply experienced firearms instructor, was legally carrying and took down a gunman with a single shot.

Maybe Democrats have decided that, in the era of President Trump, honesty is no longer required. Or maybe Elizabeth Warren is just too insecure to tell the truth about her own life. Whatever the reason, the Massachusetts senator has built her campaign on a foundation of exaggerations and misrepresentations. It's common knowledge by now that Warren, one of the top four 2020 Democratic presidential contenders, identified as a Native American, despite being somewhere between 0.1% and 3% Native American and having zero experience in tribal life. If only her misrepresentations began and ended there. Ask her constituents in Massachusetts and they may remind you that the senator also fibbed when she promised

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff. A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials. White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort.

For Republicans, the 2010s end with the party seemingly in a better situation than it was when the decade started. The GOP has control of the White House and the Senate. Ten years ago, the Democrats held the White House and both houses of Congress. But that scorecard doesn't tell the whole story. Thanks to five major blunders over the last decade, the Republican Party is actually weaker than it was on Jan.1, 2010. To understand why, you have to document each key mistake in order:

He set the rules to allow only the witnesses he wanted. He lied in his opening statement to commence the inquiry by making up President Trump's phone conversation with Ukraine's President Zelensky. The resulting vote to impeach was a foregone conclusion regardless of the evidence, or lack thereof. Pelosi has not sent Shifty's articles of impeachment to the Senate for a trial because she said she wants to first see the Senate trial procedures.
