One reason not to depend on humans to think for you, is because, even if sincere chances Satan makes them hasty to conclusions and makes them err.

The Quran paraphrases a lot. The following are examples:

1. Moses' prayer is paraphrased in many different ways in Quran.
2. Zakariya's prayer is paraphrased in many different ways in Quran.
3. Stories and what exactly God said to Moses is paraphrased differently in Quran.
4. What people replied to Messengers is paraphrased differently in Quran.
5. In the 6th Surah, the word Wali, Mawla, and Hakim are used interchangeably in a Surah.

Why am I saying this? Because paraphrasing is an important way to keep the meaning of something.

It is assumed that the Prophet (s) didn't repeat the issue of Quran and his family, it maybe he repeated it many ways, that are not mutually exclusive and don't contradict, but he repeated differently to emphasize on what he meant.

In fact, this is more rational to assume, because it's the style of Quran.  Quran never leaves anything by itself but has other words to contextualize it and reword it from different angles so you get the right view.

Your articles all assume that the Prophet (s) only said the phrase once. There is no reason to assume, he didn't paraphrase many times at Ghadeer.

In fact, he might repeated in more ways then we even recorded.  In light of this, the hadiths with okay chains or even weak chains are not mutually exclusive.

It maybe he said "thaqalain, amrain, khalifatayn" all three. It maybe he even said in light of that, in singular taraka, to emphasize more on their unity.

It could be at times he emphasized more on his Ahlulbayt (a), while others time when repeated, brought the importance of Quran.

This is not even accounted for in your articles, it seems, like you guys don't know really how to reflect outside a narrow box.
