Russia doesn't love the U.S. but they love Trump. If they had to invent a U.S. president, he'd be Trump.

Considering Trump's relationship with Russia goes back to the mid-80s, I'd say the Russians accomplished exactly that.

Isn't that the same thing former Southern Democrats, turned Republican, have been doing for the last four hundred years at home and the CIA has been doing for at least 75 years around the world?

#4 | Posted by bayviking, Your ignorance about the South is telling. Can I note that a Cheese Head probity has no idea what happened 40 years ago when the drift to the GOP happened. The racist, rural democrats did not change parties. The fact is the South became urban and industrialized. Lifestyles and employment changed which resulted in a change in political identity. It was a cultural shift, something that has never occurred in your neck of the woods.

I get your point about the union busting industrialization of the South. But, Nixon, Reagan, Bushies, Trump relied on the divisive Southern strategy with rural poor and evangelical pawns, the consequences include failed education systems, hate crimes galore, and rising inequality.

The russians already delivered their fatal payload to this country back when they used to be the soviet union. The poison of radical leftism has taken some time to run its course but now the damage is becoming manifest. At this point, the best the russians could do is hammer away at various fracture points which are already structural, but the majority of the damage was seeded decades ago.

DOCNJO is just full of crap. I've lived in many parts of the nation but mostly in the South which is a bastion for racist hatret, don't let anyone tell you different. The Southern Strategy is how Republicans win the Presidency since Nixon. The one thing they can depend on is that racist hatret is still strong in the South. Anyone that tells you different is a liar.

And then there is that treasonous coward Mitch McConnell who vows to prevent any legislation at all designed to prevent foreign tampering in our elections. I'm just sorry but I don't have an ounce of respect for anyone who votes Republican today. You're all treasonous cowards. I feel a need to puke.

#10 | Posted by danni,#9 | Posted by danni,#8 | Posted by danni, You have a deep love of that "Southern Strategy" myth. It is almost religious. But it just isn't true. Nixon already knew that the Dems were vulnerable in the south, the '68 Chicago convention was the straw that broke the camel's back. If the southern people wanted more racist to run things, they already had the Democrat party.

"You have a deep love of that "Southern Strategy" myth."

You just pretend it's a myth then tell me why Ronald Reagan kicked off his campaign from Philadelphia, MS, which is only famous because that is where the three civil rights workers were murdered back in the sixties. And tell me why Don Jr. did a rally there too while you are at it. The Southern Strategy is the Republican strategy, Republicans weren't even racists back in the early sixties, the Dems were but then the Dems reformed our party and the Republicans appealed to the angry white Dems to join their party, which they did, the rest is history. REad a book stupid.

"If the southern people wanted more racist to run things, they already had the Democrat party."

The racists left the Democratic Party when John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson pushed through the Civil Rights bills, I was a teenager at the time living in Mississippi, trust me on this, I watched and learned. The South is full of racist white haters with a few very fine white people who supported Civil Rights to the point that their very lives were in danger. My parents had freinds who had the FBI parked in front of their house 365 days a year because of all the death threats against them.

I don't think all the racists left the Democrat party. Biden is running for president.

So the racist Democrats left their party over the Civil Rights bills that were supported by Republicans? Wow, the cognitive dissonance is strong with this one.

That is exactly what happened. Sorry you haven't ever read a history book, it's not too late you can still educate yourself. Funny thing, those Republicans, from that era would be ashamed of their party today. They were fiscal conservatives who believed in a balanced budget not tax cuts for the 1%. In those days Republicans were actually good citizens, Reagan changed all that. Even Nixon didn't defy court orders to hand over the tapes which brought him down unlike the ------- in the WH today who defies court orders with impunity and nearly total support from Republicans in Congress.

Why not read a history book yourself. BTW, The subpoena was issued by a house committee, not a court. What they asked for from the AG, was illegal to him the divulge. Grand jury testimony is protected for good reason.

#20 | Posted by 1947steamer As I remember Wallace, Conner and Maddox all had the opportunity to change parties when the shift happened, guess what? They stayed in the Democrat party till they died. They were voted out and replaced by Republicans. Did the House Judiciary Committee ask a judge to review the document? Nope.

"#17 | Posted by danni Remember Lester Maddox? Bull Conner? George Wallace? Remember who controlled the south when all this crap was going on?"

Lincoln (R) started the War of Northern Aggression.
Wilson (D) purged blacks from as many Federal positions as he could.

But then things started changing.
Truman (D) integrated the military.
The Democrats split off the Dixiecrats over race and nothing else.
Even the name Dixiecrats goes back to that Civil War, clearly making it about race.
Strom Thurmond and Jesse Helms became Republicans.

Not much has changed since then, on the race relations front.

Look at the racial makeup of the Republican and Democrat Congressional delegations.
It's plain as day which party is the white male party.

#33 | Posted by aborted_monson, Abortion, you want your delusions to bear fruit? Keep believing nonsense. You are the racist. You can't conceive that any black man is your equal, they must be "cared for" with special actions. Paternalism is worse than prejudice. One can change the mind of someone prejudiced, but the paternalist can't. He is doing good. He is virtuous. He is noble. He will care for the black community to death, destroy the black family, put generations of people into a state of dependency and destroy the education system to prevent any avenue of escape. Some have a lot to answer for.
