Nope. I think that it's important to get a wide variety of viewpoints if possible. Only a fool believes that his side is completely right--on almost all issues we struggle with as a nation, there are good, compelling arguments for each side (speaking simplistically, of course, as if anything really has just two sides). A thoughtful person will always have some dissonance in his/her viewpoint, recognizing that there are good arguments against that viewpoint.

TIL a blog is peer reviewed data that comes from 15 members/stories from Joe's weirdo family. I especially like the "bad idea blog". Just the name of it sounds eerily similar to your life from conception on forward.

You realize the recount wasn't ever supposed to overturn the election, and the rest of your "points " were made by people like your self, not sensible Democrats. Your posts are always so confusing.

Omg... no. How could they possibly tamper with the votes? And wouldn't it actually benefit them to have Hilary as their buddy in the whitehouse? She's already set the world on fire and her foundation is the reason Russia owns a ton of US uranium. But aside from allllll of that.... if it was reported by the media, its bullshit. Period. My two cents. I have ZERO faith in our government, our media, our education system, the FBI.... I don't recognize my country any more. Not even 12 years ago we were the most colorblind this country has ever been. We saw each other as equals and didn't give a damn what flavor they were. Honestly, I think most of us still don't but all of the above mentioned will teach and tell you otherwise.

While I agree that is completely reprehensible, that is microscopic potatoes by comparison to our cold war rival manipulating our elections.

Haven't read the whole thread but has anyone noticed "they" (always anonymous) are LEAKING CLASSIFIED INFORMATION in order to smear Trump in the Media?

Until of course Obama made a public statement... to cover their ashes...

I mean....is this the story that they're running with again?

If this "Russian Involvement" is really just pointing to Russian sources that freed up DNC/Hillary emails it doesn't do anything to invalidate Trumps presidency. If anything, it's just pointing to the Russians favoring Trump over Hillary, which is old news.

When this came out last week, I was thinking of something more groundbreaking.

None of this would have happened if she did put those emails on a private email server.

Bolton makes extraordinary claim that hacking may be a ‘false flag’ by Obama administration
Well, it seems Bolton (image below):


Oops, I mean:


Oh rats, here it is:


Is going full Alex-Jones conspiracy mode and claiming Obama might be behind the DNC hacks:

Quote:
John Bolton, a former U.N. ambassador reportedly being considered for deputy secretary of state in the Trump administration, said Sunday that reports of Russian interference in the presidential election may be a “false flag” conjured up by the Obama administration.
Honestly, you can't make this stuff up.

Putin views the collapse of the Soviet Union as one the greatest geopolitical tragedies of our time. He certainly views America as responsible for it. He would love to see the same happen to America.

Trump (and Trump supporters) may be the useful idiots Putin has waited for.

The book The Sword and the Shield comes to mind on the KGB's history.

The Post reported late Friday that the CIA had concluded that individuals with close ties to the Russian government delivered thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, including from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, to WikiLeaks a few weeks before the election
