    Oh, Good Grief! I watched that story,......The man is a talented glass maker,.....and now an obviously talented liar, too. A quick scan on the internet shows that it ain't "Fake News".....groups as diverse as the Army Times, Newsweek, and the Drudge Report are reporting the expose'.......

    I will refrain from comments about "poetic justice"...."hoist by their own petard"........and "glass houses".......

    Maybe Faux News will finally learn the term "vetted",....and will research the background of the people they put on the air.

    As a veteran,....I hope the Stolen Valor people come down on this guy like a ton o' bricks. And....I hope Faux News gives them airtime to do it......

    I've been on vacation. This morning was the first news I've watched in two weeks. This is shameful.

    Last year, near Davenport, Iowa, I sat with a veteran who had no legs. He worked for the DAV. He told me there are almost four times as many people claiming today to have served there, as actually did. Shameful.....

    Another "state side war hero" Good God why try to be something you weren't. Yes you served "thank you" just leave it at that, nothing more. And yes I'm a Veteran but I don't talk about it much just the good times I had and the places I saw that's all

    If you don’t see the difference in a guy claiming to be a navy seal fooling the reporters and cnn making up information to slander our president then your fooling yourself. Your statement “This is what Trumps people have resorted to, sad” makes you look stupid.
    https://amp.theguardian.com/media/2...ists-resign-over-retracted-trump-russia-story

    Read that and tell me it’s the same thing! One is a fluff piece of a guy who was later found to be using stolen valor. He made an award for the president and wanted to give it to him. A non story until the vet group found it to be untrue. Then fox retracted it. The guy that lied disrespected vets. A terrible thing? Yes. But isn’t getting anyone thrown in prison.
    CNN was making accusations of corroboration with the Russian government, a treasonous offense. Which one of these is trying to ruin someone’s life?

    Trump is the mirror image of Obama, pendulum swinging. You liked when your guy did the exec orders, but now you’re mad that the exact same method is undoing Obama’s overreaches.

    Trumps a ignorant pampas ass, he was when he started running and he remains so.
    But he does know how to sell himself, he's been doing that all his life.
    That doesn't make him a wise compassionate leader.
    that just makes him a salesmen.

    And that’s your opinion. So what? What does that have to do with a guy claiming he was a navy seal? That guy lied. Fox in this instance used this liar as a source. The left media just says “sources say”. At least in this instance you can go check the source. You can’t do that with the “ sources say” model CNN loves to use.

    Shame the guy wasn't a Dem, you could have elected him to the senate like Blumenthal

    Yes this guy is a POS
    he deserves everything he gets but once again seems much more like a one way street

    I agree. People like this guy need to be trashed and bashed for weeks on end to deter anyone else from pulling the same stunt.
    There once was a time when a man's word was as good as gold, not so much nowadays.

    Kudos to Neil. Now if we could just get CNN and MSLSD to stop airing lies that they already know is a lie, then we'll be getting somewhere.

    The left considers Trump's Executive Orders that are undoing Obama's tyranny, as an actual EO. I guess their bias and incompetence doesn't allow them to see the difference.
    :duh:
