Whoopi: You can't do it for 8 yrs & then be pissed off that someone does same thing to you-COMRADE"

“You can’t do it for eight years and then be pissed off that someone does the same thing to you, comrade. Look, that’s what America is built on, man. And if you’re going to be the president you’ve got to get yourself right, because people are going to be coming at you because now there are questions about your presidency. Maybe the same kind of BS questions you might have had if you’d been thinking, had you thought about this.”

your move, Mr. Assange


George W. Bush at least was openly helped by the UNITED STATES Supreme Court...

not secretly by RUSSIAN leader Vladimir Putin.

And then we knew Cheney and Rove were the ones actually in charge.

WH: Sounds like Putin got his copy of talking points--certainly sounds like what Trump team says

President Obama’s spokesman needled Russian President Vladimir Putin and President-elect Donald Trump Tuesday, saying Mr. Putin was using the new administration’s “talking points” to accuse the Obama team of undermining Mr. Trump.

“It sounds like he got his copy of the talking points,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest. “It certainly sounds a lot like what the incoming administration’s team is saying.”

Mr. Putin said the Obama administration was trying to undermine the legitimacy of Mr. Trump’s election by spreading falsehoods about Russia helping him by hacking Democratic records.

“People who order such fakes against the U.S. president-elect, fabricate them and use them in political struggle are worse than prostitutes,” Mr. Putin said.

We The People - Get To Choose Whether Trump is Legitimate Or Not.

We Choose Whether Trump is Legitimate

Given what I wrote in my last piece about the country being in cardiac arrest, Byron York’s effort to parse the meaning of “legitimate president” seems like so much whistling past the graveyard. It’s a game of gotcha where the idea is that anyone who sincerely believes that President Trump wasn’t elected in a fair, square, and constitutional manner must be some kind of half-mad far left conspiracy theorist.

It’s true that you can distinguish between folks who believe the election was outright stolen and people who think it was unfairly influenced. There are those who think that Trump won according to the rules but that rules should be changed so that the loser of the popular vote doesn’t win the election. There are those who think that the FBI director’s interference made a decision difference, and since Comey’s actions were illegitimate, that makes the result illegitimate. There are those who think that the drip-drip-drip of Russian-pilfered leaks fatally undermined Clinton’s credibility, bringing her down to Trump’s level. They don’t think a foreign power should be able to change the course of our history through criminal interference in our political process.

Only a small minority think that actual count was off. People voted how they voted.

Getting caught up on the word “legitimate” is a waste of time. The important thing is that we now have a president who wants to help Putin destroy the European Union, dismantle NATO, and crush the pluralistic, ecumenical, secular Western left in the name of white supremacy and a petro economy. The question shouldn’t be whether Trump was elected legitimately but who wants to go along with his program?

There are parts that the Republicans like. Most of it, however, is so hostile to American influence and any common conception of American interest, that’s there is little division between Democrats and Republicans in opposing it.

At least that was the case until, perhaps, now.

Byron York is playing by the old rules, but those rules are obsolete.

We choose whether what Trump wants to do is legitimate. And, for Republicans, now is the time to choose.
