    Before the inauguration is just a distant dot in the rear view mirror, let's not forget the movement Congressman John Lewis led -- the movement that encouraged a large number of liberal House Democrats to boycott the big day in Washington. Let's not forget it because it tells us something important about the people we elevate to hero status: that given enough time, even icons can become tedious. And, sadly, Congressman John Lewis has. Lewis was a genuine civil rights hero who earned his stripes on March 7, 1965, a day that has come to be known, for good reason,...

    "BREAKING: Trump-Hating Democratic @RepJohnLewis DIDN’T PAY TAXES On His Nearly $1 Million Fancy DC Townhouse" Trump-hating Democratic Georgia congressman John Lewis didn’t pay property taxes on his nearly $1 million fancy Washington, D.C. townhouse on Capitol Hill, despite being in Congress for decades, where the salary for a Representative starts at $174,000 per year. Lewis was in the news recently for saying he doesn’t see President-elect Donald J. Trump as “a legitimate president” because of the #RussianHackers Democratic conspiracy theory. Public records show he avoided paying property taxes on his DC townhouse at 219 3rd Street SE on Capitol Hill:

    GOP-Hating Rep. John Lewis Didn’t Pay His Real Estate Taxes Instead of finding fault with the new president, maybe Rep. John Lewis should worry about paying his real estate taxes. The well-paid congressman didn’t pay taxes on his nearly $1 million posh D.C. townhouse on Capital Hill. Rep. Lewis said Donald Trump isn’t a “legitimate” president, same thing he said about George Bush, but he’s not a legitimate taxpayer.

    John Lewis Disgraces Himself If a good man turns bad, are we required to pretend, for the rest of his life, that he is still good? Do such a man's earlier good deeds render him strictly off-limits from any and all subsequent criticism until the end of time? Is he entitled to be revered indefinitely as a hero, an icon, or a saint, even if he has spent the past half-century proving himself to be a vile race-baiter, an ally of America's enemies, and a liar who repeatedly bears false witness against his fellow man? We can answer all these...

It began on Jan. 14 with an excerpt from an interview that Lewis did for NBC’s Meet the Press, in which he said that while he believes in forgiveness, "it's going to be very difficult" to forge a relationship with Trump. "I don't see this president-elect as a legitimate president." In his Meet the Press interview, Lewis underlined the importance of his concerns about Trump by saying, "It will be the first (inauguration) that I...

Yes, Lewis’ accusation was baseless and blatantly partisan: He said Trump isn’t a “legitimate president” because of Russian hacking, and he’d skip the inauguration, “the first one I’ve missed since I’ve been in Congress.” Oops: He didn’t attend George W. Bush’s inauguration in 2001, either — charging that Dubya wasn’t truly elected. Last year, Lewis said Trump “reminds me so much of the things that George Wallace said and...

My neighborhood, Boulevard Heights, was then a poor community in the shadow of the federal prison where Cuban criminals from the Mariel boatlifts famously rioted in 1987. I moved to Boulevard Heights a few years after the riots but heard the stories.

    Seventy-six-year-old Congressman John Lewis once did something so heroic, so noble, that it helped to change the course of a nation for the better. The Georgia Democrat was beaten up savagely by white Southern racists in 1965, and everyone appreciates very much his personal sacrifice to advance civil rights. But what has this radical leftist blowhard done for America lately? Like the civil rights movement he served, he has become corrupt and destructive. He is a hateful old man who lies about his political adversaries and spews ugliness.
