If I or anyone else wants to read Mensch and Taylor, it's really NOYDB. Sure I'm not alone on this

Funny all these attacks on her today. I and others consider her to be an ally.

If you don't buy her ideas, fine. That is your opinion, but others will continue to read her.

I have her back because she is putting herself out there and her safety on the line. She is researching things that no one including MSM is bothering with.

To me she is a soldier fighting for the USA. Brit she. Our country is worth fighting for.

She has shared that she has ADHD which is a curse and a blessing. It explains her research and methods. Hyperfocused and able to see connections from lots and lots of data... which is what the Trump/Russia is made of.

I for one am thankful for her time and energy.

Dear LM carry on! Brave woman and patriot.

edit:

I love this quote from Charlotte Little:


If I or anyone else wants to read Mensch and Taylor, it's really NOYDB.

I personally hope their right even if they get the details all squirrelly. In the meantime, I follow them on twitter just as I follow Maddow and O'Donnell. I'm a big girl, all grown up and capable of deciding for myself what I think is possible and what's not. Has nothing to do with it being "helpful for some purpose."

I would imagine I'm not alone on this.

1. Ask yourself these questions

 

1. Is that person a reporter for a legitimate news outlet?

2. If this person tweets a claim attributed to an anonymous source, do they follow that claim up with any reporting?

3. Does this person have credentials relevant to the subject matter they’re discussing?

4. Are this person’s claims drastically out of step with what’s currently being reported?

5. Why would a high-level official leak to this specific person?

6. Am I only tweeting this because it makes me feel good?


I don't believe she's credible and I am highly suspect of her motives.

4. Ask yourself this question

Will I recant my dismissal of her credibility if time bears out her reporting on the subject?

We are in the middle of a top-secret investigation of dozens of individuals. Our only source of true information is leaks. That is true, for the most part, of the Twitter stars (Mensch, Taylor, et al.) and the MSM (WaPo, NYT).

It is too early to assail any of these sources.

Only in retrospect will we know whether they are veritable or whether they are liars.

Your assessment jumps the gun, IMHO.

330. Is Mensch any less credible than MSM?

 

MSM (Mourning Joe et al) is quoted & linked and that is fine to do so.
However I take what Louise says with the same interest as MSM.
I find her & Taylor incredibly interesting in the fact there intel sources do not come through the same channels as MSM.
Some of their intel sources exist outside the predictable channels.
They come from the Five Eyes who aren't under the same direction & control of our US media.

The Five Eyes, often abbreviated as FVEY, is an intelligence alliance comprising Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

I will certainly read Mensch, Taylor etc, and sincerely hope they are correct in the end.

I don't see what the big to-do is suddenly.
I'm more than ready to look elsewhere for current political events, considering how devoted our US media was 24/7 to DTrump throughout the campaign.
They get no pass from me for their role.
Thank you

352. Will You Do Likewise?

 

ABSOLUTELY I will recant!

We're all Democrats here. We all would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see Drumpf indicted or impeached.

Just because some of us don't get unrealistically optimistic about rumors which are most likely false, does not mean we don't want the same thing.

I will gladly come to DU and say how completely wrong I was. Somehow I doubt all the cheerleaders rallying behind these rumors, will do likewise.

353. I don't think I'll have anything to recant, actually

My whole point is that it is too early to know whether any of these sources are veritable or not. Time will tell. There are many who have already condemned the integrity of these sources, prior to their reports being verified or not. They're the ones who'll need to address their own skepticism.

I'm keeping an open mind, fully cognizant that none of this has been corroborated, and some of it most likely will not be proven until introduced in a court of law.

5. Your questions are funny, but #4....

How do you think any new information is ever found out if you only consider a valid item one that others are already reporting? That makes zero sense..

If you don't like her, don't read anything she posts. Simple as that.

One of the refreshing things about reading online citizen journalists is they aren't constrained by the false "both sides do it" that traditional journalists twist themselves through.

They say what they've found. Believe it. Don't believe it. Doesn't matter to them.

For some reason, certain somebodies don't want those of us rubber-necking Mensch to do so when in fact they can just ignore her and us.

12. Ask yourself the Woodward and Bernstein question. Is this the best version of the truth today?

What you are doing is not only divisive, it is a list of right-wing talking points which can be condensed to a trump quote, "Fake news."

Louise Mensch is a former member of the British Parliament who has connections in the British intelligence community and is a conduit of information they wish to make publicly known. She also has connections to the author of the Steele Dossier.

Please, tell us about your intel connections and the exclusive reporting you have done. I'd love to compare your sources and work with hers.[center]

193. This thread totally covers the situation:

1. A fact doesn't go away just bc a bunch of livid one-sided Putin/Trump/Alt right OR LEFT trolls try to attack Claude & Louise.
2. So in all your foaming at the mouth & LYING about them being wrong when they've been proven right repeatedly on BIG stuff, remember that
3. When you keep trying to discredit those delivering the information despite repeated clarifications, you've LOST before you started.
4. Facts are stubborn like that, they don't go away. No matter how much mud you sling at @TrueFactsStated & @LouiseMensch Trump IS indicted.
5. And that's because it's a reality that cannot be changed. The amount of time people are wasting trying to discredit is staggering. STOP.

49. Answers to your questions re Mensch


1. No, but that does not disqualify her. It's a fact to be considered. However she proceeds with the same level of professionalism on the TrumpRussia scandal as reporters from outlets you would consider legitimate.

2. Yes, she does.

3. By now she is so deep into this subject matter that she is more credible than just about anybody except an FBI forensic accountant. On other stuff, not so much but on TrumpRussia she has a good track record.

4. No, they are not drastically out of step with the WaPo or Newsweek or LA Times, etc. She is sometimes ahead of them, but in essence her reporting has proved out on the TrumpRussia scheme.

5. Louise Mensch stood up for some people in the Intelligence Community and defended them vigorously and effectively some time back. Ever since they have been leaking to her.

By now she has garnered a good reputation for protecting sources and reporting conscientiously with proper caveats. So people from other high levels of government have leaked to her.

6. No. The three main posters forwarding her articles and tweets to us have been very actively posting other good information on the TrumpRussia treason.

91. Ask yourself this question: which legitimate news outlet reported on the October FISA warrant

on the Alfa bank and US persons before Louise Mensch did?

As to your other questions.

2. yes.
3. yes, she was a reporter for Heat street, a libertarian publication, and for Fox.
4. yes, she beat every other news outlet to the FISA warrant story. And she was correct.
5. she has the trust of some IC sources because, at the time of the Snowden debacle, she wrote on behalf of the need for the intelligence community not to be outed -- which is what Snowden did with his leaking.
6. no.

3. No, Woodward was a rookie reporter when he connected with Deep Throat. No relevant credentials.

4. Yes, his reports were drastically out of step.

5. No reason a high level official would leak to this rookie reporter. It turned out just to be a fluke that ever caused them to meet.

I put my skeptical glasses on while reading a number of these 'citizen journalists.' But I don't ignore their posts, nor do I discount them out of hand. Truth is, Mensch, Schindler, Taylor, Jester, Nance, Hennessey et al have been pretty damn accurate and ahead of the curve. They come at the issues with varying degrees of expertise and contacts. Then, too, the 'mainstream' press is beginning to verify aspects of their reports.

We need to glean information where ever we can attain it, run the facts and details through various filters for confirmation, and then be willing to tip our hats to those who have found the inside track. Doesn't matter whether those reports come from the Washington Post or a citizen journalist feed line.

Heads up, people. We've entered uncharted waters where reality itself is being challenged. Don't shoot the messenger.

FBI has FISA warrant for Trump secret server connected to Russia.

Of course, even those who did got shut down as this thread started to go yuugely viral on election day (see view count) when the hackers shut down DU.

We hope what she tweets is true. But any reputable journalist would show a little more restraint. For instance, just because she has a source doesn't mean she should tweet what they told her. Do some journalism work, that's what leads to credible and trustworthy news. She simply seems to be throwing whatever she hears at the wall to see what sticks.

Sorry, there are standards that we should demand and she's not even approaching them. Demanding real journalism is something that the Left should view as a must. This is not FOX News or the Free Republic.

What I think though is that outrageous tweets are being put out to try to make our side look irrational and nutty. This process is going to take a long time, be patient. Sealed indictments are totally baseless for now, let this run its course, we are in step 2 of a 40 step process.

My point was one can believe the Russian story is real without hitting refresh on Louise's twitter feed 500 times a day. You seem to have an issue with that based on the "Do you believe the Russian story is fake news?" question simply because I believe that Mensch is trolling the gullible.

Anyway, we're done here.

11. I read her and Claude Taylor every day

I do think they are on the right track even if they aren't right on top of the truth I think they are close enough, and everything that ads to 45's paranoia and continued deterioration is fine with me.

It's doubtless that 45 knows what they are saying every day and if they are close to the truth it's just another way to keep the pressure up, and it's obvious that things like constant leaks and public participation in the discourse of such keep him on the defensive.

And that's where he needs to be, so if it takes a leap of faith to believe what's being said I'll take that leap, I prefer hope over dispair every time.

Time To Investigate Paul Ryan After He Gives False Information To Defend Devin Nunes
By Jason Easley on Thu, Mar 30th, 2017 at 9:32 am

During an interview on CBS This Morning, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan made a false statement about House Intelligence Committee Chair Devin Nunes's source being a "whistleblower type person," which is a reason for an independent investigation into the role of the Speaker in the effort to cover-up the Russia scandal. http://www.politicususa.com/2017/03/30/time-investigate-paul-ryan-false-information-defend-devin-nunes.html


Intel community chatter: Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell caught red handed in Trump-Russia scandal
Over the weekend, credible leaks from the U.S. intelligence community have sprung afoot, ranging from Donald Trump and three advisers being caught on tape admitting to treason with Russia (link) to Rudy Giuliani trying to cut a deal against Trump (link). Now comes chatter that GOP leaders Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell may have been nailed as well.

The claims about the GOP House and Senate leaders are coming from two different political pundits whose sources have a history of being proven correct. One is former Bill Clinton White House staffer Claude Taylor, who stated today that he’s “Starting to hear chatter that there are intercepts w/ Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell discussing funneling illegal Russian money into campaign” (link). He went on to stress that “This really is ‘chatter’ as opposed to sourced,” making clear that this is not confirmed on his end.

16. Most of her tweets are elaborate, if not fanciful, stories which have not come to pass or be proven.

Could most of what she is saying be true and we need to be patient for it all to come to light? Yes.

Could most of what she is saying be complete bullshit that will never see the light of day? Yes.

People can believe her if they wish; however I think it is premature, maybe even foolish to pin hopes on her at this point in time. More evidence and public events are needed before her words should be consumed as gospel.

125. "Could most of what she is saying be complete bullshit that will never see the light of day?"FALSE

EDUCATE yourself. You just name call and never give any specifics.

In the journalistic race to get to the bottom of one of the most closely guarded secrets in Washington – the investigation into the Trump team’s contacts with Moscow – one of the biggest scoops came from an unexpected source: the British former MP and novelist Louise Mensch.

However, it seems increasingly clear that Mensch landed an extraordinary scoop that had eluded the best investigative journalists in the US. Her explanation is that her vocal advocacy on behalf of UK and US intelligence agencies since former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s revelations about mass surveillance led her sources to trust her.
Donald Trump's first 100 days: a guide to the successes, the failures – and the tweets
Read more

“They gave me one of the most closely guarded secrets in intelligence,” she said in a telephone interview. “People are speculating why someone trusted me with that. Nobody met me in a darkened alley in a fedora, but they saw me as someone who has political experience and is their friend. I am a pro-national security partisan. I don’t have divided loyalties.”

Mensch said she gained her reputation among intelligence professionals on both sides of the Atlantic as a result of her furious criticism of the Guardian’s handling of the NSA files leaked by Snowden when he walked out of his NSA job in Hawaii and fled to Hong Kong.

Mensch has lived in New York since resigning as the Conservative MP for Corby in 2012 so that she could spend more time with her children and her American husband, Peter, the manager of the heavy metal band Metallica.

Now 45, the woman born Louise Bagshawe in London who once dominated the chick-lit bestseller lists in the UK has reinvented herself once more: working as an executive for Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp by day, and probing Donald Trump’s Moscow connections by night."

Whether Trump's firing of Comey constitutes obstruction of justice is something that people can reasonably debate. It's not a slam dunk that it was or that it was not.

But those claiming it was unconstitutional. Or claiming that Pence somehow also engaged in obstruction of justice (he didn't fire Comey -- he doesn't have that legal authority) are just making things up.

criticized Sen Sanders after he didn't endorse Jon Ossoff...so that explains all the angst...not saying you. I would not presume to make assumptions on why you dislike this person...you can tell me if you choose too or not.

In my opinion, she broke the biggest story this year with the FISA warrant story. And now people are echoing her story about Trump and criminal warrants. I don't find her credible...and again I will say this...It is not your business who or what others on this site decide is credible...unless it violates TOS.

I know Racist tweets are on my top billing for blocking someone. Derogatory language towards Asians, Hispanics, Blacks, Gays and Lesbians are a great indication of people I have blocked in the past. I may not recall the reason, but if something offended me greatly, its not likely, I would want to give them a second chance.

170. It's standard web brigades technique


Have ready a bunch of points and pre-packaged paragraphs, usually phrased as concern. Copy and paste and tweak and post. It's fast and allows relatively new posters to build up large post counts quickly. But the main purpose is disruption.

In a thread like this it is possible to be more direct. Just post smears and personal attacks against the target (Mensch) and no need for evidence or links because people (me included sometimes) will react. First we ask for evidence, expecting a rational discussion. By time we give up on the poster there has been a lot of go-round and heat generated with no light, no insight, no willingness to think about the issue.

I'm seeing accusations of how it happens all the time here. Womanofthehills has been the only one to offer one—one—example. You seem to understand a person's desire for evidence or links. That's all I'm asking for.

In people's zeal here to want to believe everything Louise Mensch writes, they should be careful not to get so caught up in it that they reject all criticism, and condemn the critics as being not of the body. That's fanaticism.

If anybody provided "concrete examples of disruptive trolling", that would be 'meta' and could easily lead to posts being quickly removed. I went as far as anyone could. If you don't see it in this thread and others, then so be it.

And with regard to Mensch herself,

Indeed it is.

Which is why we ask for specific criticisms, specific examples, from the critics. But we get more flat-out rejection of her, more broad based smears and no specifics. Repetitive amorphous smears without specifics is what is disruptive.

On David Cameron's "A-list" no less. Could have had a very successful UK government career. I believe it was purely personal/family reasons why she resigned her seat.

However Conservatives and Republicans are in my eyes in the same boat. So I'll take her commentary and insight with a pinch of salt. I don't know her - personally or professionally - so I'm obliged to keep an open mind. But this anti-Tory, anti-Republican lens that I view my life through means that I'm going to be naturally suspicious about a Tory or Republican railing against DJT.

from reading twitter posts linked here . So yes I take what I read from her with a grain of salt not knowing who she is or possible contacts she may have . Have gotten my hopes up one to many times on a post of hers not to do otherwise or know who she is really working for .

I read the threads regarding Mensch with interest and a wait and see attitude, and I think that everyone here is smart enough to read and evaluate material for themselves. I don't understand the need to beat things down (and quite consistently).

Not trusting that they would get their news out - or protect their confidentiality.

MSM screwed up the whole of last year. They did not take seriously the danger of a Trump presidency and his obvious corruption and collusion with Russia. They relied on a false equivalency where HRC was on par with DT.

MSM 2015--2017: They were ridiculous. They enabled bad actors.

I believe in the 1st amendment but the MSM needs to do some serious soul-searching.

In fact, there have been many of them (as in complaints about this very subject) on DU that has not been in non-compliance with DU Rules, so it's quite funny you picked this one out. Funny indeed.

Instead, your beef is the subject manner. In particular, Mensch and Taylor. Last time we checked Mensch is not a Democratic Figure in anyway shape of form and Taylor might be a Democrat but that does not mean that DU posters cannot heed caution to his speculative tweets. Where exactly on the DU Rules is it that stating a form of Caution on speculative tweets is a violation?

So, please don't tell us or try to spin and fail about we are trying to run a DU board or DU itself due to concern about Tweets Links with little to no explanation that are speculative themselves in nature. That line of reply is a swing and HUGE MISS.

216. The problem is that the tweets and now the blog (with ads) remind me of fake news sites.

The deplorables and their ilk on the right bought into these crazy conspiracy stories and other fake news items that were being distributed by bullshit artists out to make a quick buck. Those purveyors of the bs preyed upon the gulliable RW because they were desperate for anyone and anything that supported their views.

Now we may or may not have something similar going on for those of us on the left. Some of us are acting much like the fake news believers on the right because Mensch, Taylor and company are saying things that people want to believe. Now there's a money making website dispensing their views. Could it be legit? Could it be a scam? Until we have some sort of confirmation of what they are peddling, we should use extreme caution with them. They might be valid and are simply passing along vital info that nobody else is willing to do. They might be taking people for a ride.

Be patient and don't get your hopes up.

Whether any of this involves collusion or worse is something I'm leaving for the FBI.

People need to ask themselves why the MSM has not broached any of this stuff about the grand juries. Why has nobody in the MSM confirmed the bulk of what they are saying?

The "report" from this weekend about Hatch receiving security briefings in preparation for becoming President soon should have made everyone raise an eyebrow in suspicion. First of all, this could all be part of the standard procedures for maintaining our government. Did anyone ask if he was receiving them last year during Obama's term? Also, this suggests Ryan is up to his neck in this. While he is doing undoubtedly a scumbag of epic proportions, it is one hell of a leap to include him in all of this given 2012 and the seeming distance between him and 45 during the campaign. Yet people lapped up all of this without batting an eye.

Once people are arrested or the MSM reports on this stuff, then I will start believing. Until then, I am highly skeptical of all this as should everyone else due to lack of proof.

What is your opinion on BLM?

313. You sure about that?

"The minimization of Russian influence on our elections by the Young Turks has been rather interesting, with journalists like Michael Tracey who pooh-poohs the impact of Russian interference in our elections. He decided to troll a bunch of protestors to trick them into downplaying Russia’s impact, but got completely owned by a woman who was far much more knowledgeable than he was."

The video of this is a MUST-SEE for anyone fighting back against Russia’s continued interference into our elections, as actually confirmed today in a live Senate intelligence hearing. "

317. So you're of the position BLM was funded by Russians

Did BLM work to get Trump elected too? Don't be fatuous, Jeffrey.

356. No, but there could have been disruptors who started fires and such...and I don't think BLM had

had anything to do with the violence, and they said at the time the folks were outsider who did these things...I also think the cops set some of the fires...and none of this has anything to do with the fact that the FISA Warrant info was true...and she is being backed up by folks including Scarborough for the the latest...and now we learn that Trump revealed classified info to the Russians. Who's Jeffrey?

are not trustworthy...the link I sent you shows them downplaying the Russian story.

Some of the replies that I've gotten on this site make me wonder - they'd rather trust a crazy Brit than their own instincts. Unless their instincts suck too.

people from Ferguson said outsiders were mostly responsible for the Ferguson riots.

...from a yellow journalist flat-out inventing things.

If she's going to break any big news, it'll eventually be supported by real reporting, and that will happen long before any impeachment proceedngs actually begin. We don't have to be in a hurry to do anything but fact-check her yet.

and perhaps you should report her words accurately. As for Milo ...see below. You all are mad because she made a disparaging comment against Sen. Sanders. I didn't care for that either...however, she has been proven correct more than once.

266. I don't care if you read them or not. But when folks post Mensche/Taylor tweets and blogs here on DU

it is perfectly appropriate -- and should be expected -- that others will challenge and criticize those tweets and blogs and, by extension, the DUers who post them.

295. Its going to take a village to hold this adminstration. All voices welcome. I remember reading NYT

article on Halloween that said not ties between Trump and Russia. Everyone thought that was true, but turns out, NYT was
completely wrong.

Have to read lots of sources, distill, analyze, compare before arriving at facts.
