    Are we really on that? Trump has 5000 ties to Russia and Kutchner has private communication with Russia and you're getting worked up over this? And that's like somebody breaking their leg and being worried over the fact they have a hangnail.

    Clinton during her Wesley commencement speech

    "If our leaders lie about the problems we face, we'll never solve them,"

    I wonder if she was referring to lies like:

    "Dodging sniper fire"
    "Didn't use private server"
    "Benghazi was a video"
    "Came out of WH dead broke"

    Comparing Hillary's drama to trump isn't even close. Nice try, though. When all else fails throw out Benghazi and hope it sticks.

    Per Rep. Keith Ellison's twitter feed this morning. :lookingdown:

    "Our healthcare system is so cruel, one of the heroes of the Portland stabbing has to crowdfund his lifesaving medical care."


    But...I thought they'd fixed all that?? So confused!!

    Good Lord Sooo Much false information here:

    1.) When someone gets to keep more of their own money (i.e. --- A tax cut) YOU AREN'T PAYING - its their money.

    2.) Your "tax loop holes" and "tax havens" are legal parts of the existing tax code and legitimate ways of keeping your own money. When someone else gets to keep their money ---- "YOU AREN'T PAYING".

    Logic - its tough for liberals.

    And oddly enough the Portland stabbing was done by a Bernie Supporter......


    Jeremy Joseph Christian, the 35-year-old Portland man who allegedly murdered two men and left another critically wounded while yelling anti-Muslim slurs in a knife attack on Friday, has been painted by the mainstream media as a “right-wing extremist,” but posts on his Facebook page indicate he was a supporter of socialist Senator Bernie Sanders and Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

    According to screen captures of his Facebook page obtained by Buzzfeed, Christian was not a Trump supporter, as many media outlets claimed, but was a supporter of the idea of a Sanders/Stein ticket.

    Does who he supports politically make a stabbing any more or less of a crime?

    Ummm wow short memory - all of you lefties tried (and failed when the facts didn't fit your story line) time and again to take every mass shooting and tie it to the right wing.

    Remember the Gabrielle Giffords shooting - Supposedly a Bush voting right - turned out to be a card carrying registered democrat.

    And for this one - the Green Party Candidate comes out on the Portland Shooting and says the following --- of course before the facts were known. She clearly tries to make a political motivation for the shooting.

    Here is her twitter where she tries - later to fail tying this to Trump.

    Is there much in the Sander's populist rhetoric that promotes violence?

    You know who was a Republican though? The brave soul who stepped in to protect the young Muslim woman from harassment and sacrificed his life in the process.

    Dan Rather nails it again:

    Dear President Trump,

    Their names were Taliesin Myrddin Namkai-Meche and Ricky John Best. One was a recent college graduate. The other was an army veteran and father of four. I wish we would hear you say these names, or even just tweet them. They were brave Americans who died at the hands of someone who, when all the facts are collected, we may have every right to call a terrorist. A third brave man, Micah David-Cole Fletcher, was wounded in the knife attack.

    This story may not neatly fit into a narrative you pushed on the campaign trail and that has followed you into the White House. They were not killed by an undocumented immigrant or a "radical Islamic terrorist." They were killed in an act of civic love, facing down a man allegedly spewing hate speech directed at two teenage girls, one of whom was wearing a hijab. That man seems to have a public record of "extremist ideology" - a term issued by the Portland Police Bureau.

    This "extremism" may be of a different type than gets most of your attention, or even the attention in the press. But that doesn't make it any less serious, or deadly. And this kind of "extremism" is on the rise, especially in the wake of your political ascendency. Most people who study these sorts of things do not think that is a coincidence. I do not blame you directly for this incident. Nor do I think other people should. But what a President says, who he has around him, and the tone he sets can set the tone for the nation at large.

    Perhaps Portland, Oregon is off your radar. It is, after all, a rather liberal place. It's even a "sanctuary city." But it is still an American city. And you are its President. Two Americans have died leaving family and friends behind. They are mourned by millions more who are also deeply worried about what might come next.

    I hope you can find it worthy of your time to take notice.

    Actually it is - her' was worse - but the Press ignored it. Under Trump every little thing is magnified to biblical proportions until the facts come in and they are proved wrong.

    Simple answer to Dan (make up new to swing an election fraud) --- Police your own liberals. He was a ranting anti-trumpet and anti-hillary Bernie Sanders support.

    Dan Rather is a disgraced liar with nothing to say - he should shut up and stay in the nursing home.
