Leftist censorship again:  Must not praise Trump cabinet picks

A Republican super PAC promoting President Trump’s Cabinet nominees took down its website after it was hit by hackers Monday, according to a new report.

The hackers changed sections of the 45 Committee’s homepage to mock Trump and his Cabinet picks, CNN said.

A spokesman for the group — which was founded by GOP mega-donors Sheldon Adelson and Todd Ricketts — confirmed the website’s hacking Monday to CNN.

Hackers renamed one section “Make America S----y Again,” the group said, and wrote “Black Lives Matter” across the website’s video portion.

A commercial in support of Rep. Tom Price (R-Ga.), Trump’s nominee for Health and Human Services secretary, was relabeled “Steve Bannon is a White Supremacist.”

Bannon, who is Trump’s chief strategist and senior counselor, has faced criticism for his past role as chairman of Breitbart News.

Critics have accused Breitbart of serving as a platform for the alt-right, a movement they argue promotes white nationalism, misogyny and anti-Semitism.

CNN also reported that another 45 Committee spot touting Trump’s attorney general nominee, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), was retitled “Sessions is Too Racist to be a Federal Judge.”

Sessions failed to be confirmed as a federal judge in 1986 after former colleagues accused him of making racially insensitive remarks. Sessions, though, has fiercely denied those claims.

The 45 Committee has spent more than $4 million so far on broadcast and online ads praising Trump’s Cabinet nominees, according to CNN.

It's time to find these hackers and sentence them to 10 yrs minimum with no IT access. No computer, no smart hone no iPad or tablet. No modern technology. Let them hack that while they cool their heels. Those that are caught are not sentenced in line with victim expectation nor for to compensate for the damage done. Time to end that once and for all. Hackers do not commit victimless crimes and should be treated like the criminal they are. Imagine if it had been done to Obama or Clinton.

Some Liberals are in a frenzy because they were not able to elect a candidate who was a liar, a crook, and not competent to be President even though she was female.
