Your partisanship is showing again. If the Russians had been behind embarrassing Republican email leaks during the election you'd be screaming about it.

 

There is no proof on who was behind the hacking, and those email leaks had nothing to do with Hillary losing the election. She lost because she was a horrible candidate, she mismanaged her whole campaign. In the final days of the election- she, Bill, Obama and everyone else were out campaigning for her. She lost, it is time to move on.

 

BTW, it is really funny how those that came up with the weapons of mass destruction are supposed to be believed on the emails, you can't have it both ways.

Boy, you got it easy, Jake. Just blindly post and paste a right wing internet fake news much of the time headline or a Trump tweet. No thinking required on your part; certainly few attempts to articulate.

To be a Patriot in the United States, you have to believe in democracy, equality and fairness for all. There is no place for the glass house of racism in a democracy like the United States.

 

Falsely accusing people of racism is about the lowest form of demagoguery. Its what people do when they have nothing else to say.

 Let's see, Bill Clinton messed with an intern in the White House while President, then lied about it. And Hillary couldn't even handle an email server while Secretary of State, and lied about it. Yep, its all Trump and the Russians fault.

Are you sure you really didn't get him mixed up with Warren Beatty-- maybe it was really Warren Beatty who did that because you don't like him either. Or maybe Warren Beatty actually did that in a movie. LOL

So if you have left your door unlocked and it just so happens that a gang enter and murder your family and steal everything you have only yourself to blame?   Yes it may be careless but I wouldn't go as far as to say that the gang did nothing criminal.

I thought saying Trump isn't a "legitimate" president was somebody's sly way of calling him a bastard. ;)

Sepiatone

Sep--

Some words in English have more than one definition, more than one usage.

Certainly the word "bastard" also has a definition, which has nothing to do with whether or not a person's parents were married or not, but instead is used in association with a subjective Judgment of an individual's character.

In terms of the word "legitimate", I think the Congressman is using that word to describe something illegal such as, Trump's presidency is illegitimate because the election process which is putting him in office was illegal. Therefore Trump's presidency would be not be legitimite. I think that's what Congressman Lewis is asserting in his statement.

John Lewis's repudiation of Trump's Presidency may prove to be significant. As a civil rights leader he carries a moral authority that the President-elect lacks. Many working cohorts call him a hero. He is also not known for partisan politics but as a man who tries to work with politicians on both sides of the aisle.

Therefore, for Lewis to make a public statement questioning the legitimacy of Trump's victory may have more of a reverberation with fellow politicians than if those same words had come from a blatantly more partisan politician.

John Lewis has shown in his life that he has a great deal of Courage.

There are probably very few people in this country who would have the kind of Courage that he had, to do what he did on that bridge in Selma, Alabama in 1965.

Having said that, there are very few people in this country today who have the courage to do what he is doing right now - - standing up to a rich and powerful demagogue.

That's a nice scenario. Let's see if we can improve on it.
 
So you have left your door unlocked and a gang enters and they can see the family is all dead, "a murder suicide" so the gang decides to rob the house.

Nice to see you taking the high road like the Obama's

 

"The words that we say moving forward -- all of us, it matters, which is one of the reasons Barack and I are so supportive of this transition, because no matter how we felt going into it, it is important for the health of this nation that we support the commander-in-chief," she told Oprah Winfrey in an interview that aired Monday on CBS. "Wasn't done when my husband took office but we're going high and this is what's best for the country."
 
"So we are going to be there for the next president and do whatever we have to do to make sure that he is successful because if he succeeds we all succeed," she added.

I read that Bill Clinton has a relationship with a female Russian spy and that is how they got Hillary's emails.

Had she hid them in her pantsuits, they would have been perfectly safe. BTW they hacked the DNC, and the laptop that the FBI got was due to Anthony Weiner and Huma. They have nobody to blame but themselves.

Trump made a very public statement ... "Russia if you are listening" ... encouraging them to hack Clinton's emails which no matter how much you may hate Clinton would be an illegal activity by a foreign government.

There are accusations, still unproven, of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians in regards to the Wikileaks leaks on Clinton's email. If this is true, at the very least, members of Trump's campaign consorted with a foreign power to hack an American political party in an effort to get their candidate elected President.

 

Whether these allegations are true, or Trump himself had knowledge of the activity, has yet to be proven.

You tell 'em, Jake! So What? Who Cares? You care so little that you felt compelled to post in large, bold lettering how much you don't care. That's a lot of not caring. That'll show those simpering leftists who's got the largest care deficit! Ole Jake!

 

I bet Nippy cares so little he'll only post 5 to 12 times about it in the next 24 hours.
