One must wonder if that the reason the Democrats have been so angry with Donald Trump’s election is that they did indeed lie, cheat, and steal to win the 2016 presidential election and they still lost anyway.
You must also wonder just how many of the votes for Hillary Clinton in states without voter ID laws were cast by those people in this country illegally who are allowed to register to vote without any proof of their citizenship.
Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton have finally voiced the reality: There’s politics. There’s dirty politics. And then there’s progressive politics—lying, cheating, and stealing to win.https://t.co/27DkulXxiY

Within the span of a week, two high-profile Democrats verbalized their party’s perspective on politics. “When they go low, we kick them,” former attorney general Eric Holder frothed to a group of loyalists. “That is what this new Democratic Party is about,” Barack Obama’s former cabinet official proclaimed to shouts of “fight, fight, fight.” (Holder later backtracked.)
Then a few days later Hillary Clinton told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about.” Holder and Clinton have finally voiced the reality: There’s politics. There’s dirty politics. And then there’s the trifecta of progressive politics—lying, cheating, and stealing to win.
Of course, everyone plays politics. Republicans used their Senate majority status in 2016 to reject President Obama’s election-year Supreme Court nomination of Merrick Garland: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell flexed the muscle of the majority to control the Judiciary Committee’s hearings and refused to schedule the necessary hearing and vote for Garland.
A few years earlier, Republicans instead found the filibuster their friend, when Democrats and Sen. Harry Reid controlled the Senate. But then Reid removed that political weapon from Republicans’ arsenal when he nuked the filibuster for lower-court nominees. Looking ahead, the retiring Reid suggested that if Democrats took back the Senate following the 2016 election, a further rule change would remove the filibuster option for Supreme Court nominees.
Reid was half-right. When Republicans won two years ago and Democrats used the filibuster to resist confirming Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, Republicans responded as Reid suggested. Then with a simple majority, Republicans confirmed both Gorsuch and later Brett Kavanaugh. More
All their dirty tricks and the billions of dollars spent was for nothing! Ouch, that had to hurt!
