    Man, that speech by Mister Heck was straight out amazing.
    He really was talking about how the US should be. Striving for the best, not the worst.

    Comey and Rogers talking like Patriots (Not Nationalists).
    They have come out as surprisingly idealistic. Not just about America, but as Comey repeats, also for their allies.
    Comey's choice of words was harking back to his thinking that the US should be a shining beacon on the hill, which I did not expect of him.

    I'm not even American, but this makes me kinda wish I was, haha.

    Man, Gowdy is one heck of a miserable bastard.

    Deflect! Deflect! Blame! Blame! Deflect! Oh Woe Is Me Not Being Respected!

    That was one hell of a mix of being whiny and decrying that anonymous sources exist.


    Nunes asking if Comey investigates the current Administration.

    Comey: "I cannot comment on that."



    ...Why the heck are all the Republicans giving such a slimey impression?

    They avoid Russia like the plague, but keep on attacking the IC.

    AND back to FAKE NEWS New York Times, etc.

    Edit:
    Are you kidding me...

    They actually try to say the Russians are behind the New York Times, Washington Post, etc... this is unbelievable.

    This is.. Jesus Christ...
    Clearly the GOP has decided the lügenpresse are a bigger threat then Russia.

    Man, if these Trump supporters were around in 1920s Germany, they would be saying "I don't read the mainstream media, I only read Der Sturmer, everything else is fake news.''

    Canadian politics sucks sometimes, but I am glad for a Prime Minister who is not a pathological liar (though he has broken some promises recently) and the Tories do not conspire with foreign governments to gain power.

    Also while I live in Canada, an actually half American and I worry for my family down there.

    Me neither, but I'm pretty sure we're both better off for it.

    Because they're slime. Nothing more complicated than that.

    It also doesn't help that the Republicans look like bumbling idiots here, and the Democrats like professionals.

    I think it is also important that Comey confirmed something that I and others on this thread have speculated on quite a few times:

    Both parties were hacked.
    Only material from the Democratic Party hacks were selectively made public by the Russians via Wikileaks.

    That means they likely still have material to blackmail Trump and the GOP.

    Unfuckingbelievable
    Spicey said that Trump's campaign manager Manafort played a "very limited role" in Trump's campaign.

    Think about that.

    Now, #VeryLimitedRole is trending nationally on Twitter.

    There is a bill in Massachusetts that criminalize female genital mutilation, apparently this has been going for sometime but only now is getting attention.
    http://www.theahafoundation.org/mass...ve-it-forward/

    the bill will ban the practice, give jail time to anyone who participate in the act which include family members, it would fund education on the issues how the practice is unnecessary and harmful and it will give financial compensation to the victim.

    i hope it pass, this practice is really awful specially for the little girl who suffer this, they could easily get infected in the future, but yeah you can support this bill in the link i just added

    And thanks to Roger Stone shooting his mouth off on Twitter last week, we know he was in direct contact with Wikileaks while they were leaking info from the DNC, and the Trump campaign knew what was going to be released BEFORE Wikileaks even released it.
