    People know that it's a lie that Tulsi has had an awkward and suspicious past with Russia and backing their talking points? Because that's quite wrong if that's your claim.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.
    _____

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    No women in the race had their names in the same sentence as Russian assets over and over again like Tulsi. It was around the time they were labeling her an Assad supporter. The more anti-establishment one is, the more smear jobs that are done on them.

    Tulsi and Bernie have faced smear jobs after smear jobs from the wall street dems this year.

    If you know something that the military intelligence doesn't know about someone serving this country then you best tell them. I can't walk with you on this because it is so over the top. Did this awkward and suspicious past occur while she was surfing in Hawaii? Don't you think she has been screen in depth by the military, CIA and FBI. Or you like Trump and don't trust the intelligence agencies to do their job?

    I remember when they called anybody who was against the Vietnam war, a communist sympathizer.

    If it was published it would be libel. Defamation is for things said.

    I'm aware, that's what I'm saying. It's even more difficult to get damages awarded for defamation than it is for libel.

    I'm generally not a fan of lawsuits since, for the most part, I think they just make lawyers rich, but this one could make politicians think twice about lying about opponents.

    Of ocurse, only if Tulsi can make the case stick which may or may not happen. We'll see.
    Oh, Tulsi doesn't have to make it stick in the court of law. I would bet she not even thinking of her day in court. But in the political world, during an election year and the progressive most hate moderate/Wall Street democrat, Tulsi could force Hillary to go on the offensive by either more smear jobs, or defend her words and the action behind them in the public eye.

    The two biggest wins of this lawsuit is

    1. Anything she says against Bernie or anybody else with have the public shadow of defamation. She best not get caught in a lie because every word will be scrutinized.

    2. She neutralizes Bernie's chief opposition and political machine, The Clinton and maybe Obama depending Tulsi and Bernie play this.

    I am also betting they are playing bad cop and a good cop. She did knee capped Kamala Harris, challenge the other military-experienced candidate Mayor Pete, also had to be stopped by the debate moderators for going after Pete with strong accusations, as she did with Kamala, at one point.

    She is perfect for "I just want to focus on the job, No Drama" Bernie as running mate.

    FYI, slander is for things said, libel for thing written down. Both are Defamation.

    Edit: Bob and Tom bit that is the funniest explanation of the difference between slander and libel. Link.

    Despite anybody who tries to be informed knows that the opposite is true. Bernie should have been the nominee, and he would have won.

    If Trump can become president with no political background then I don't understand why I need a resumé

    Following up an Associated Press report from earlier this month, Common Cause, a nonpartisan organization that advocates government reform, has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission, alleging that Our Revolution, a political nonprofit organization founded by Bernie Sanders, violated campaign finance law by accepting donations in excess of federal limits while helping to boost his run for the presidency.

    Dissapointing to hear about Our Revolution, but Sanders hasn't even been associated with them since 2016. They support his bid but he has no influence over what they do.
