Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid compared the purported Russian hacking of the U.S. election to the 9/11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 Americans.
“I think this is as big a deal as Watergate, as 9/11,” the retiring Nevada Democrat (useful idiot) told BuzzFeed at an event in Washington, D.C.
“I think they should have a 9/11-type commission. I know that [Sen.] Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), [Sen.] Ben Cardin (D-Md.) and others are calling for that. I think it’s a step in the right direction. This is a scandal that’s been uncovered,” he added.
Reid was referring to the CIA analysis that the Russian government hacked the Democratic National Committee and then leaked the information that proved damaging to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Opponents of Trump say the Kremlin may have been involved to hurt Clinton’s chances of becoming president and help the billionaire businessman, who has suggested it would be “nice” if the U.S. got along with Russia.
“To think that [Russian President Vladimir] Putin has such good relations with the president-elect and now his new secretary of state,” Reid said, referring to ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson, whom Trump has chosen to be the next top diplomat. Tillerson’s close ties to Russia as an international businessman have lawmakers on both sides of the aisle concerned.
Harry, nobody has given proof that Russia was the hacker. There is absolutely no proof as to what the motive of the leaker was, much less the motive of the hacker. Perhaps most importantly, everything that was made public about Hillary and the DNC is accurate. It was what these people said that was damaging. Perhaps the people who made the damaging statements should be investigated.
According to Whoopi Goldberg, the right to publicly celebrate Christmas is the same as a “woman’s right to choose.”
During The View on Dec. 13, Goldberg brought up a story from Texas where a “public school teacher was forced to remove a display, a – a Christmas display of Linus,” based off of the Peanuts film A Charlie Brown Christmas. That display, she added, included a Biblical quote from the cartoon movie reading, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord. That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.’”
After an irrational discussion with Joy Behar about the rights of the teacher, Behar sought middle ground by saying that even though she’s a “very big Christmas fan” she still agreed “separation of church and state must be adhered to in a public school.”
Goldberg disagreed again – this time by bringing up (the completely unrelated topic of) abortion:
“But it’s the same conversation with a woman’s right to choose. What I do with my body is my right. It is not your right to tell me. The same thing is it’s – if you believe in Christmas, it’s not my right – you know, I grew up and – and, you know, kids who didn’t go to Catholic school had Christmas and they – we never knew what their religions were, but we hung cause it was Christmas holiday.”
Behar predictably reverted to the politically correct, but not constitutionally protected, position that Christian teachings and beliefs cannot be spoken or exhibited in any public setting. Goldberg just made a totally irrational argument for the sole purpose, it would seem, to equate the right to kill a baby with the right to celebrate God coming to earth as man. The birth of Christ brings life and abortion ends life.
The “useful idiots” of the Marxists such as Pelosi, Reid, Behar, and Goldberg, must cause the Marxists like Obama, Jarrett, Holder, Axelrod, Sharpton, Jackson, and the others to cringe with embarrassment.
