Hillary Clinton on Tuesday said she took “absolute personal responsibility” for her losing presidential campaign -- but went on to blame FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference for aiding Republican rival Donald Trump’s ascension to the presidency.

I take absolute personal responsibility for this post...but it's Comey and the Russians' fault that I did it. :roll:

Late night talk show host Stephen Colbert pushed even his own envelope by insulting Trump in a manner that probably violates forum rules for even posting this.

Sad.



Never seen his show, and never will, the whole gist of any of them these days is to denigrate Trump, continue spreading fake news, and looking like complete buffoons for not being what the American people care about. They are still so much in denial, that they were't who the voters listened to, before the election, and they are just doubling down on stupid.

The average Republican/Conservative/Disgruntled American people are such suckers....first we got majority in the House of Representatives, and were told in order to get the country back on track we had to have the Senate. Then we got a majority in the Senate, and were told we had to have the White House. Then we got the White House, a majority Senate and a majority House - only now to be told we must have 60 Republican Senators in order to get anything done. It's beginning to look like electing Trump over Clinton is only delaying (somewhat) the inevitable demise of this country.

Oxymoron= Republican Leadership. Fiddling away while the country burns.

Even when the left loses, they still win and the country suffers. It seems it does little to no good to win.

We don't need to spend billions and billions of dollars building a wall. Hungary has achieved the desired results with fences.

http://dailycaller.com/2017/04/30/exclusive-it-was-an-invasion-how-hungary-managed-to-erase-illegal-immigration-in-just-a-few-months/

Build a fence like that with the monitoring and enforcement behind it, add in a opportunity for citizens to volunteer to stand watch and see what happens.

Source close to Comey says there were 2 reasons the FBI director was fired - CNN
https://apple.news/AyIBNdJv5RRmC5CQSpnIySw

Trump fires the director of the FBI.

My view: about time.

MSM: because Comey was investigating the Russia connection to the point he was going to find something.

My favorite on Apple news was that it was impeachment time. I think maybe now for the 10 th time.

But don't look at the list above. Instead focus on this:

Washington Post: Trump shared classified info to Russians - CNN
https://apple.news/A61nnDsEHQiKy-5vpsIJ0yw

CNN just repeats WP story since they like it.

Nice list B T W.

Am I wrong but the President is free to make anything not classified by just saying it?

I believe that the POTUS can declassify as long as the information is owned by the USA.

:iagree:

Great list, some of those I wasn't even aware of, probably because nothing he does gets much media coverage. From what I have read, somehow, "former" US officials claim that he provided classified information. How many former US officials were at the meeting? The people who actually were there, say it didn't happen. I guess MSM got tired of looking like idiots over Comey's firing, and had not met their daily quota on fake news, this week.
