It's about people being in their rightful place...beneath them.

    Also, interwoven with that sort of psychological undercurrent, is this sort of mentality that Trump supporters have adopted that Democrats and Trump critics are not real people, real citizens, with actual rights, that they don't have any right whatsoever to participate in the same legal and political processes as they do.

    Does a dog have any right tell you that you can't screw over a subcontractor? What does an ant have to say about ethics and law and duty?
    I too, "liked" (in the sense of finding them thought provoking) the question and answer.

    Unfortunately both the question and answer distressed me a great deal as they appear to say something VERY significant about the course that American society has embarked upon.

    That course CAN be changed.

    The question is "Does the American people have the will to do so?".

    I wish that I was as confident in a "Yes." as I would like to be.
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't _DESERVE_ the best. What's second best?

    None of us cared that the lot of you were sad that Epstein died either.

    Then again, in Hillary's case. It was most likely that she had protection. Because I don't think it's legal for a person to destroy evidence, and public record. Especially when they're ordered to hand all of it over.

    But it must've had some rather incriminating items on it, if she felt the need to erase all of it with the kind of software that they used.
    Why do they run?
    Because they have no choice son, such is the way of cowards.
    But even a cornered rat, with no choice, will fight.
    Yes my son, and that should tell you more than you need to know about the coward.

    Trump still uses his personal cell phone despite warnings and increased call scrutiny - CNNPolitics

    President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN.

    The Democratic impeachment inquiry has resurrected concerns about the security and potential vulnerability of the President's communications. Witness testimony revealed some top officials repeatedly failed to follow protocol intended to prevent sensitive phone conversations, including those involving the President, from being intercepted by foreign intelligence services

    But but but her e-mails!

    Trump and his supporters never cared about issues related to classified information or our national security with regard to the Clinton e-mail controversy. It was all just an excuse to attack Clinton.
    It's been equipped with all the latest security features. Prove it's not.

    Also, the President has access 24/7/365 to other communication devices with ultimate security.

    Yes, Obama got to keep his BlackBerry...with enhanced encryption and limitations on use.

    Nope, it would be the Presidential Records Act, which requires archiving presidential communications, telling him that.

    And that's the question, whether he's following the necessary steps? Aside from not preserving records and potential hacking/malware infection, a concern is the GPS of an unsecured phone makes it easier to pinpoint the President's location.

    And presumably to unsecured ones.

    Someone loves making up silly stories! Especially stories to attack Rudy and the president.

    Fake News @CNN is reporting that I am “still using personal cell phone for calls despite repeated security warnings.” This is totally false information and reporting. I haven’t had a personal cell phone for years. Only use government approved and issued phones. Retract!
