Misogyny is so normative in our society, it has cost us greatly

Misogyny is so normative.

Media went wild about ‘her emails’, but not the same coverage for Trump ‘treason in broad daylight’.

We have to extract our best spies because Trump will expose them, and the country has lost attention already.

Republicans have a history of exposing our intel for political payback. Bush did it with Valerie Plame.

Vote these treacherous GOP assholes out in 2020.

  1. Had tRumpsky not built his campaign around Hillary’s (claimed) indiscretions, we wouldn’t have given the situation any (or little) attention. Now that the spotlight is on him, however, it’s an entirely different matter. Now, the Repukes circle the wagons and make tRumpsky just a poor innocent and unknowing fall-guy.

    • Hello Nan. Yes I have heard the misdirections of State Propaganda TV. However the Republicans are really good at Branding, taking a talking point and beating it into people. 9 Benghazi hearings found Hillary innocent of doing anything wrong and they had scheduled a 10th until she lost the election, then they admitted it no longer mattered. Democrats don’t have that perseverance, that determination to just go after someone for no reason other than to ruin them in the eyes of the public. I often think that Democrats better get tougher, better at fighting as we have lost so much ground we may not ever be able to win again. I personally cannot stand Chuck Schumer. That man has no spine. He won’t stand up and fight if he had to break a sweat. Hugs

      • I tend to support what the Democrats stand for, but overall, they are proving themselves to be a namby-pamby weak and ineffective party. IMO, one of the big differences between them and the Repuks is the latter stick together. Individually, they may not always agree with an action, but they follow the lead of the one in charge and (for the most part) keep their mouths shut.

        The Democrats, on the other hand, can’t stop arguing among themselves and so nothing (like the ongoing impeachment actions) gets done.

        • Hello Nan. Again I agree. That looking weak is a big turn off to a lot of people. I think that is what draws a lot of people to the new young progressives, they don’t back down and they back up what they say. I wish the older establishment Democrats could understand that while they once were grand for the party, that has long ago changed and now they are endorsing tactics and positions that are hurting the party. This is not the 1980’s-1990’s anymore. It is time for the leaders to reflect that it is 2019. Hugs

  2. (TLDR version – Oh, no, not the Hillary email thing again! She didn’t violate rules in ;place at the time by having a server! She was responsible for vetting her emails and choosing which ones needed to be stored, not every jerk Republican jerk with a desire to show off his Hillary points when he gets home. Criminy!)

    Argh! Hillary’s servers! I tracked down regulations from the time she was SOS and there were two points that really stood out.
    First, there was no requirement to do email business on the government server. She went to Colin Powell and asked how it was done and followed his advice since the rules had not changed at that time and using your own server was actually considered best practice until the rule change during Kerry’s tenure. Don’t bring it up, though, or you can expect to be accused of accusing Powell of misdeeds. Total blowing off of the point. Every time.
    Second, the rules state that the SOS is to go through her emails (and other correspondence, of course) and determine which items are to be archived and which are not necessary for this treatment as they are irrelevant or a duplicate. Levels classification would dictate that most confidential info would never be emailed to her as that would be a violation of handling rules – and changing the designation after the fact is just plain not playing fair. Also, I read a discussion of confidential doc handling (Tengrain, IIRC) in which it was pointed out that an entire missive might be marked classified on the first page and the last page could end with “see you at the opening of congress next week” but sending that last thing could be technically construed as sending classified information – which was buried elsewhere in the letter. So, all the caterwauling about her lack of storage of emails is total bs and never discussed as her responsibility not some republican jerks. Again, never brought up in most discussions – and if it was brought up can you imagine the screeching? And claiming she was constantly mis-handling classified data? Yeah, the 9 and a half investigations turned up 3 instances which might have been that situation. Comey has balls of brass for
    Sorry, it just gets my goat, bad. So bad it might be PTSD from some buried incident in my past of enduring unjust accusations…

    • Hello MDavis. Well said sir, well said! I agree. I have argued the same. I recently heard from a person on the web who had not spoke to me since the election in 2016. No matter how bad tRump was he just had in his mind this caricature of Hillary that he couldn’t shake. He bought into all the State TV Republican talking points about her. He also couldn’t find any good about Obama. So I hope his vote is working out for him. Hugs
