First Amd. right to lie’

Fox News contributor Donna Brazile sent co-hosts of “The Five” into a fit of laughter over her take on the First Amendment.The former Democratic National Committee Chairwoman left the panel momentarily speechless after she declared that “there’s no First Amendment right to lie” during a discussion on the battle between President Trump and Twitter. (Video) “This whole fact-checking thing is designed as a way to tackle misinformation which would be good if there was a balance,” Greg Gutfeld noted in the discussion after President Trump blasted the platform this week for adding a fact-check label to his tweets about mail-in voting.“

She is flat-out wrong - the Stolen Valor Supreme Court decision expressly stated that lying is protected Constitutionally. The opinion is interesting. By the time I completed it I concluded the court was right.

Donna Briazile has no business on Fox News and The Five. When she arrives I leave. I don't watch most shows as it is, maybe Fox and Friends or Fox Business in the morning but then I won't watch again until The Five comes on. Sometimes I wish I hadn't watched that show as well. When Donna is on, I can't stomach it! Shame of Fox for paying a Cheater to be on their shows!

If there's no right to lie in the First Amendment....then...why is she lying about there being no right to lie in the First Amendment? A first-class asshat. Every dime Fox pays this grifter would be better spent going to the unisex restroom and flushing the money down the unisex commode.

Uh, yeah, actually, you ignorant airhead, you have the First Amendment RIGHT to say ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SAY. Leftists CANNOT put limits on free speech, no matter how much they hate losing the arguments - and no matter how often they claim that views different from theirs are "lies". IMO, 90%, at least, of what Brazile says on a daily basis is a lie.

She is partially correct. The First Amendment will not protect you from civil liability for defamation and fraud, and it will not protect you from lying to the FBI or lying under oath (perjury). And if you tell your wife you were out with the guys and you were really seeing Lulu, you will need more than the First Amendment to protect your sorry hide.

Actually, I think she meant there's no First Amendment for Republicans to lie but it's O.K. for 'rats. Agree with other poster, when I see Brazile on the Five I don't want to watch them. Today it was that really really smart Marie Harf. You know she's smart because she wears really really big black rimmed glasses.

I am glad to see her on the Five (occasionally). I fast forward through her segment because I know what she says will be stupid but since she is there to represent the Dim perspective I am glad she is the one doing it because anyone who watches can easily see how stupid the point she tries to make.

I'm gonna catch grief for seemingly defending Brazille, but she is right in a limited sense. That is in the law of slander and defamation. However, that is a different context from that which she made her statement. In that context she is completely wrong.

#28, the Supreme Court has put limits on suits for defamation based on the 1st Amendment. To sue a public figure, the plaintiff has to prove knowledge of falsity or reckless disregard for the truth. One SC justice--I think it was Hugo Black--dissented from rulings in defamation cases arguing that the 1st amendment was absolute and that defamation suits are unconstitutional. That didn't carry the day, but sometimes minority views end up becoming majority.

Donna Brazile. One of the reasons I watch Fox less and less. When she is on, I switch the station. I would rather watch a commercial than watch this admitted liar. Am watching Newsmax more often. It is stunning, absolutely STUNNING, that she has the ball- to talk about lying. She purloined debate questions from CNN ; she lied every time she opened her mouth about hag Clinton. She is the poster child for the dangerous, lying corrupt Democrat party. Sickening.

She should still be fired for telling the RNC chairgirl to "Go to Hell" on the air. I dare say that if even Sean Hannity would have told a guest to Go to Hell, he would be gone, but everyone always has a double standard for Democrats. Even Fox News has a double standard and that is ridiculous. This time on Fox News as exposed Donna Brazile as nothing more than a trash talker who gives black woman attitude (i.e. Maxine Waters, Shelia Jackson Lee). Before coming on Fox News I was under the impression that she was refined, intelligent and classy. Those illusions are gone. When her arguments are week she goes into sassy looks at the camera.

Let's be polite: on a good day Lady Donna is a know-nothing liar. Write to Bret Baier on FB and tell him to never have her on again. Ditto re: The Five. Someone at Fox is forcing hosts to utilize her since some idiot decided to hire her as a Fox News Contributor. She's like a horrible relief pitcher with a high salary. The manager is pressured to use her. Fox must be told to not renew her contract and if she has to be put on the air. . .well, put her on doing some sort of infomercial for cow manure in the middle of the night. She is little more than a political hack who was affirmatively actioned into a position of unearned prominence.

Seems like an odd statement to come out of Donna's mouth, what with her originally insisting she did not give those debate questions to the Hillary Campaign in advance. Which, of course, was a lie. I guess it's a definitional issue. If a Republican says something, it's a lie. If a Democrat says anything, it's the truth. Just ask Adam Schiff. Or Donna Brazile.

Yes, #32! She used the holy name of Jesus Christ as an expletive when addressing Jessie. I was shocked because this is not generally accepted on shows nor should it be. Then in the next segment she declared herself a Christian woman. Sorry, Donna, but real Christians do not use the name of our Lord as an expletive. I haven’t watched the show in awhile, and when I turned it on and saw her, I was instantly on edge. Juan is bad enough, but she is anathema. Also, she told Jessie he was a whiner. Dems are the biggest whiners of all time, that is all they do, 24/7.

FIRST AMENDMENT: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." Technically, she is correct. The First Amendment does not guarantee Americans the right to speak a lie or, for that matter, the right to speak the truth. It only mandates that no law be made to limit or curtail (thereby punishing) free speech. Gods' moral law working through our conscience should govern the content of all speech because one day, God will hold all of us accountable for everything done and said during our life on earth. Politicians who acknowledge no moral law (other than their own agenda) and no accountability to God feel free to lie. Politicians who acknowledge their accountability and try to live within Gods' moral law are less inclined to do so. In both cases, their rise to political power is a reflection of the values of the people who vote for them.

The man's three children -- 3, 5 and 8 -- were in the car, a family attorney said. Identified by Wisconsin's governor as Jacob Blake, the man is in serious condition and fighting for his life. Attorney Ben Crump, who now represents the Blake family, posted a video of the Sunday evening shooting in Kenosha. The footage spread across social media, sparking protests and leading county officials to institute a

Periods may be coming to a full stop. While older texters may consider the period an innocent symbol that a sentence has ended, digital natives consider it a triggering form of aggression. The punctuation problem ignited over social media recently, with Gen Z and millennials agreeing that ending a sentence with a period is overly hostile and, worse yet, extremely uncool. “Only old people or troubled souls put periods at the end of every sentence,” wrote digital culture journalist Victoria Turk in her book on digital etiquette “Kill Reply All.”   Corrections*

The NFL is preparing to end the use of military honor guards to present the American flag ahead of the national anthem, according to reports. A league source claims that the policy benching military, federal, and police guards is part of its COVID-19 response, according to Front Office Sports. “They won’t be on the field,” a source told the site. “That could change as the season progresses. But that’s the plan at the beginning.” It appears that there will be no flags on the field and the flag will only appear on electronic scoreboards during the playing of the national anthem, at least for the beginning of the season.

Going the full Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has joined the crowd: But unlike the celebs, who don't take themselves too seriously, Ocasio-Cortez sees all sorts of significance in her makeup routine, and demands respect and power for it. “I used to think that I would be taken less seriously, and as the youngest woman in Congress and as a woman of color, it’s so hard to be taken seriously,” the 30-year-old Democratic socialist told Vogue magazine in the video clip, just before showing her gold glittery eyeshadow palette.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will be addressing the Republican National Convention this week “in his personal capacity,” according to the State Department, but the decision to do so while on a visit to Israel has upset some Jewish Democrats, who see it as a ploy to politicize the U.S.-Israel relationship.Pompeo arrived in Israel early Monday, at the start of a five-day trip that will also take him to the United Arab Emirates and two other Arab countries – Bahrain and Sudan – that are predicted to follow the UAE in its recent historic decision to normalize ties with Israel.In an unusual move, Pompeo is among the keynote speakers for  Correction*

Contrary to much speculation on the right, Democrats stuck with the fast-failing, feeble Joe Biden through their hilariously inept convention – Stop! Hey! What’s that sound! Look at this LP of my grandpa’s that I found! – and they are now well and truly stuck with him. Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit did not stagger in, waving her half-empty bottle of screw-top Trader Joe’s Chardonnay, and putsch him out of the way. Michelle stayed put in her seaside villa from which she chides us for, among other things, not taking the global warming hoax’s rising ocean threat seriously. And Kamala failed to get that box of “special” chocolates

Hillary Clinton urged Joe Biden not to concede the presidential race if he is trailing President Trump on election night. Clinton, who lost to Trump in the 2016 election and conceded the morning after the contest, said she believes this year's election will drag out for several days because of issues with voting during the pandemic. She told Showtime's The Circus that Biden would be wise to stay in the race long past Election Day. "Joe Biden should not concede under any circumstances because I think this is going to drag out, and eventually, I do believe he will win if we don't give an inch

Hollywood elites expressed disgust and even physical revulsion during the first night of the Republican National Convention, ruthlessly mocking the evening’s speakers for supporting the reelection of President Donald Trump. “Is it just me or is anyone else throwing up right now?” Rob Reiner asked at the top of the broadcast.Celebrities including Alec Baldwin, Bette Midler, Dave Bautista, and anti-Trump comedian Kathy Griffin joined in the mockery, providing snarky commentary of Monday’s virtual convention. Many of those same stars were quiet during last week’s Democratic National Convention in the latest indication that the left’s hatred of Trump outweighs their passion for Joe Biden.Rob Reiner asked

The California Supreme Court on Monday overturned the death penalty sentence for Scott Peterson, convicted in the Christmas Eve murder of his pregnant wife, Laci, and their unborn son, Conner. The court's decision came more than 15 years after Laci, a Modesto, Calif., school teacher, was killed. Investigators said Peterson dumped his wife's body from his fishing boat into the San Francisco Bay in 2002. The bodies of Laci and Conner surfaced months later. While the murder conviction against Peterson stayed in place, the court ordered a new penalty phase trial.

A new study published to the journal Scientific Reports suggests that moderate alcohol consumption is associated with slightly decreased brain volume. Scientists have long known that heavy alcohol use shrinks the brain, but it's not clear whether or not moderate drinking has a similar effect. Researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland explored the possible link within a sample of 353 Finnish men and women aged 39 to 45. On average, the subject group reported moderate alcohol consumption, indicated by an AUDIT-C score of 3.92. Such a score is roughly equivalent to drinking two to four times a month, having between three and four drinks a session,

According to the Preamble of our Constitution, one of the purposes for establishing our Constitutional Republic was to insure domestic tranquility: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” The dictionary defines Tranquility as a peaceful, calm state, without noise, violence, worry, etc. It is only late August 2020 and there must be a certain level of desperation
