John Lewis -“Trump is Illegitimate”

13 Jan

Wow…He went there. This probably means a lot of other folks, who aren’t speaking out – are there too.

To hear a sitting ranking senior politician say this…Is Earth shaking.

John Lewis on Trump: ‘I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president’

Rep. John Lewis, the Georgia Democrat and civil rights icon, says he does not see Donald Trump as a legitimate president.

“I believe in forgiveness. I believe in trying to work with people,” Lewis told NBC’s Chuck Todd in a segment set to air Sunday on “Meet the Press.” “It’s going to be hard. It’s going to be very difficult. I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president.”

Lewis argued that the suspected efforts of Russian hackers to tilt the election in Trump’s favor are evidence of “a conspiracy on the part of the Russians and others to help him get elected.”

“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected,” Lewis said when asked why he does not believe Trump to be legitimate. “And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

According to U.S. intelligence officials, Russian hackers waged cyberattacks on top Democratic Party officials during the campaign in an attempt to disrupt the election. As a result of the hacks, thousands of internal emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, were published on the website WikiLeaks, repeatedly embarrassing the campaign.

“It’s not right, that’s not fair,” Lewis said of the hacking. “It’s not the open, democratic process.”

As Todd told Lewis in the segment, the congressman’s statement is sure to “send a big message to a lot of people in this country.” Lewis is widely admired among Democrats, and many liberals remain despondent about Clinton’s upset loss to Trump. As Trump’s critics refuse to come around to him, his approval ratings remain very low.

Thousands of people are expected to protest Trump’s inauguration next Friday. Lewis, for his part, said he will not be attending the ceremony: “It will be the first one that I miss since I’ve been in Congress,” he said. “You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong, is not right.”

    All CBC geriatric pork chops “should spend more time on fixing and helping their districts, which are in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results.”

    And no, the CBC hasn’t grown a pair, won’t grow a pair, and I would still pay good money to hear this particular elderly pork chop try to lithp the word “Russia”….,

      “If you’re looking to heal and bridge, and bring people of America together, well, we’re a part of that. As black folks, we’re apart of that,” Steele remarked. “Our expectation is, not only will you attempt that same effort that you would to white folks in other communities, but that you will show respect for our leadership, those who do represent our interests. You know, the tweet is unnecessary. John Lewis has a walk that very few people in this country, least of all Donald Trump, have ever walked.”

        Straight to the CBC gala buffet.

        It was time for him to sit his do-nothing, old, oxygen-thieving ass down 20 years ago from that symbolic walk and ass-whooping 50 years ago. Along with “nutrient-medium for tufts of ear-hair” former mayor Rev. Emmanuel Cleaver who never managed to accomplish a damned thing useful for black folks in Kansas City, but has somehow managed to turn up like a crusty green and black old penny at the trough – for he and his wife’s tiny circle of utterly incompetent cronies.

        Make sure you keep plenty of that tar and those feathers for old stanky pork chops living WAAAAAYY too high off the congressional hogs but bringing less than zero pork back home to their constituents, INCLUDING MOST CONSPICUOUSLY – they’re continuing mimetic cover for failed criminal justice reform…,

        While we may agree on he ineffectual CBC. The alternate choice here is Golden Shower boy.

        Really?

        Oh and about those “Olgas”. I can see you haven’t gotten out much from that Red Zone. You see they also have “Svetlanas”. Now they Russkies want to put me up in a $2000 a night hotel room with Svetlana and film… Three things – call the airline and move the departure date out 3 days, tell the hotel I’ll be staying. And send up a few bottles of Vodka, some Caviar and Oysters, have a cardiac doctor on standby…And send me a copy of the 4 DVD set.

        Really?

        Absolutely!

        And without hesitation. It’s your fake virtue signalling around these CBC pork chops that’s in question here. You’ve had eight years to make a peep about the abject nonsense going on within the CBC.

        cue crickets…,

        So trotting these useless shit stains out now doesn’t do you a lick of good wrt making a case against Trump.

        As also, the pearl-clutching and vapor-catching around Russia and Putin as “our” enemy,

        The CBC pork chops are bigger enemies of me and mine than Vladimir Putin and any 100 million Russians ever thought about being.

        That’s the problem your status quo side has wrt making its case. You put up a useless, incompetent, and ineffectual teleprompter reader as preznit, and outside the symbolic domain, he, along with the CBC oxygen-thieves, set black folks back generations.

        We, in the red zone or whatever dismissive asshattery you beltway crumb collectors want to throw our way, were supposed to preserve that legacy of uselessness by voting for Hitlery – pay for play – corrupt to the bone Clinton?!?!?!?!?!

        Really?

        I’d rather see it all broken into a million itsy bitsy pieces than to put up with more years of smug, lying, conniving incompetent and evil shit stains – shilling specious identity politics as part of a divide and conqueer strategy to distract folks from their hands so deep in the public cookie jar.

        Lastly…Do you have a fucking clue what the Fifth District is?

        When you see a picture of Atlanta – you know that tall round building where Bobby Short used to play in the penthouse bar in the center of Atlanta? Atlanta’s downtown is in the 5th. The district has a lower crime rate the Kansas City.

        It includes the world headquarters of Coca Cola and Delta Airlines.

        The larger Atlanta area had a rate of 401 violent crimes per 100,000 population. However, that statistic included the entire Atlanta metropolitan statistical area, which includes not just Fulton but more than two dozen surrounding counties as well.

        The rate of 401 puts Atlanta would be similar to that of the Clarksville, Tenn., area which had a rate of 405. That’s higher than the rate of the Dallas-Fort Worth area (338) but lower than those of Kansas City (536), Columbia, S.C. (651) and Columbus, Ga. (469). The national rate was 373.

    John Lewis is a necessary diversion for the “Establishment Power”, who would otherwise and over time BE EXPOSED as grand harvesters of the people’s valuables.

    John Lewis has a time series N-1 benefit (history) and an N+1 (the future where you’ll catch the carrot on the stick) where “N” is the PRESENT TIME that must be distracted from.

    N-1 = the time in Selma where “JOHN LEWIS GOT HIS ASS KICKED BY THE ALABAMA STATE PATROL” and you should be thankful today for his sacrifice. Never mind that people are GETTING THEIR ASSES KICKED today in his 5th district (the whole of Atlanta and first ring cities).

    N+1 = He must expand his fight to include yet another faction of the PROGRESSIVE FUNDAMENTALIST NATIONALISTIC CONFEDERATION . When he stops talking about protecting “The Blacks” and moves on to “The Gays”, “The Hispanic Immigrants” YOU SHOULD KNOW that he has temporarily run out of “Black Grievance” to blame the White Right Wing enemy – as he DAMNED SURE will never blame the lack of RETURN ON INVESTMENT from the GRAND HARVEST that he and others have run for more than 50 years to get Black People To Vote For Their Salvation.

      Craig – You continuously miss the point. I don’t give a shit what the tool is, whether it is an “out of date, John Lewis”, or the Democrat feather fucks in Congress to take out the existential threat of the rabid dog racist right wing republicans and their Reich. When there is a rabid fox in my yard, it really doesn’t matter whether I pick up the 12 gauge, the 300 Win Mag, the 22 rifle, or the little 22 Varmint pistol…The objective isn’t to scare it away…

      It’s to kill it before it bites one of my neighbors or their children. Now it doesn’t matter that Jane, my elderly neighbor to the right is on her porch banging on her pot to try and scare off what she can’t see clearly enough to tell whether is is a fox or raccoon. Years ago she was an Olympic shooter won Gold. Now she is an elderly woman who doesn’t see or get around so well. Nor that it matter that John, on the other side is trying to sneak up on the Rabid Fox to get within the 10′ his Glockety-Glock might have a chance of hitting it…

      Just as long as I get within 40 yards or so, where my Number 4 shot will definitely lay said diseased and insane animal to rest.

      Now, I can’t legally treat said enemies by shooting them or killing them – but I damn sure can help fight them by any other means necessary.

      So anyone who wants to throw up some flack and distraction making that virtual bullet possible…Is welcome.

      It is my personal belief, this gets into a shooting war in about 6 months. You gonna get your new America…Over the bodies of 30-40 million Americans.

        If so, it’ll only be because elements of the Deep State and the status quo Establishment contiuously stoke it and provoke it. I have no stake in their continued governance or resource/value extraction. Notwithstanding the extent that me-phi-me has shook up these fraternal orders of thieves and parasites, his taking the throne to act – can not and does not occur without the throne acting on him.

        The rules are the same for Trump as for anyone else, and in consequence of that commonsense fact, you really need to dial your zeal back a notch or several.

        They are called MAEs little brother – they already exist…There are actually two, one operated by Amazon (AWS), within a few miles of each other.

        And you really need to stop talking about things which you have so little knowledge.

        http://www.nextgov.com/big-data/2016/01/70-percent-global-internet-traffic-goes-through-northern-virginia/124976/

        UP TO 70 PERCENT OF GLOBAL INTERNET TRAFFIC GOES THROUGH NORTHERN VIRGINIA

        …Thanks to that concentration of network companies and a whole lot of support from the National Science Foundation, Tysons Corner became home to MAE-East, one of the earliest Internet exchanges and home to the foundation of what would become that Internet backbone. Networks build atop networks, and the presence of this backbone in Tysons Corner led to more backbone, more tech companies, and more data centers. Today, up to 70 percent of Internet traffic worldwide travels through this region, as the Loudon county (((Where the AWS is located))) economic-development board cheerfully notes in its marketing materials.

        An unfathomable amount of that traffic is from AWS. Amazon doesn’t release exact numbers at to just how much of the global Internet currently sits atop its infrastructure. In 2012, a now-lost blog post by network-intelligence startup DeepField estimated that on average, one-third of all daily Internet usage accesses a site running on AWS. Over the last three years, that percentage has most likely only increased….

        Do try and keep up. This ain’t your side of the networking cookie…But it is mine. If it makes you feel better after blowing yourself up with that bomb … I don’t know Jack Shidt about them little “enterprise” systems and itty-bitty Cisco routers.

      A bit small to cover the “point”.

      And WTF is Yvette Carnell – and why do I give a shit what she brainfarts?

      It would seem those 3rd generation inheritors of the Civil Rights movement aren’t the only “Oxygen suckers” who would sit on their ass hoping for Massa to do “Do the right thing” for them.
