English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. advocate

    Abet and instigate are now used almost without exception in a bad sense; one may incite either to good or evil. One incites or instigates to the doing of something not yet done, or to increased activity or further advance in the doing of it; one abets by giving sympathy, countenance, or substantial aid to the doing of that which is already projected or in process of commission. Abet and instigate apply either to persons or actions, incite to persons only; one incites a person to an action. A clergyman will advocate the claims of justice, aid the poor, encourage the despondent, support the weak, uphold the constituted authorities; but he will not incite to a quarrel, instigate a riot, or abet a crime. The originator of a crime often instigates or incites others to abet him in it, or one may instigate or incite others to a crime in the commission of which he himself takes no active part. Compare HELP.

  2. Svenja Schulze:

    As far as I'm concerned it's not about immediately refitting all diesels in Germany, i advocate a step-wise plan to refit diesels where the air is particularly bad... The total costs would then be in the low single-digit billions.

  3. Larry Rosenbluth:

    Second Amendment issues have yet to take center stage in the 6th District Congressional race, in which Republican Karen Handel faces a June 20 runoff against Democrat Jon Ossoff. However, President Donald Trump is scheduled to hold a fundraiser for Republican Karen Handel after delivering a speech at the The NRA meeting. The president, who received the NRA’s endorsement early on in his campaign, is expected to deliver pro-Second Amendment remarks that resonate with the crowd. But lawyer Larry Rosenbluth, a 6th district Democrat who likes to hunt and considers Larry Rosenbluth a Second Amendment advocate, told Fox News Larry Rosenbluth ’d like to see policymakers on both sides of the gun debate seek common ground. The NRA has always had a policy that if you give an inch, they'll take a mile, i don't think The NRA needs to be that slippery slope where one compromise leads to drastic measures. The NRA AFFILIATE SUES CALIFORNIA OVER GUN-CONTROL LAWS THAT' DEMONIZE' FIREARM OWNERS Amy Jeffs, who lives in 6th district and follows the Georgia legislature for the advocacy group.

  4. Matt Kadlec:

    What's in the smoke from wildfires is, milligram per milligram, more toxic than tobacco smoke, although I certainly don't advocate smoking cigarettes, either, the nice thing about the lungs is, at least in healthy people, most of that pollution gets cleared out eventually. It might take about a month or so if you are healthy. If you have COPD or some other chronic respiratory illness, it can take longer.

  5. Mark Warner:

    As director of the CIA, Gina Haspel will be the first operations officer in more than five decades to lead the agency. I believe that Gina Haspel will be a strong advocate for the agency’s workforce, and an independent voice who can and will stand up on behalf of our nation’s intelligence community, most importantly, I believe Gina Haspel is someone who can and will stand up to the president if ordered to do something illegal or immoral -- like a return to torture.
