    Of course Mr. Limbaugh is completely silent on the Bob McDonnell corruption conviction ruling – unanimous overturning of a conviction ruling. Think it had anything to do with Mr. McDonnell being a Republican?

    That ruling, of course made it much harder to prosecute corruption in US politics. A sitting governor can essentially accept $165,000 in gifts and loans from a wealthy businessman in exchange for promoting a dietary supplement. And all the governor had to say is that he never took any official action to benefit Star Scientific Inc. CEO Jonnie Williams or pressured other public officials to do so. Mr. McDonnell simply claimed he performed routine courtesies for Williams like setting up meetings and hosting events.

    If you criminalize this type of behavior 50% of the politicians in America would be in jail. And we certainly can’t have that. Right?

    Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump are the least of your concerns. Better keep an eye on your city councilor, state reps, senators, governor, and congregational delegation.

    As a former refugee from the old Soviet Union, I can tell you the old Soviet party bosses used to claim all their political opponents were insane, and they duly locked them all away in insane asylums. The reasoning went that they must be insane to not love communism.

    Sound familiar?

    Translation:

    We’ve got nothing!

    Unlikely to issue anything new or substantive before November 8, 2016, we are now strategizing how to bring this into Mrs. Clinton’s first term to do maximum political damage and perhaps create some controversy.

    The same people who deny there is bias in Hollywood wrt sex and race argue that there is bias wrt political ideology.
    Meanwhile Ms. Dash will be starring in the soon to be released Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens.

    If you type “Stacey Dash” into IMDB the first result is Stacey Dash (Actress, Clueless (1995)). Pretty much says it all.

    UK never accepted the EU refugee quotas and were fighting Brussels on this. They were only asked to accept 90k out of 1.3M. Cry me a friggin river.

    Btw the quota originated from the UN, and the UK is still going to remain in the UN, they are on the Security Council. So they will still be asked to accept refugees in any case.

    Ms. Amanpour is 100% correct.

    The UK already had full independence.

    The EU only functions to liberalize trade and reduce tariffs on goods and services with the EU member nations. It also facilitates the flow of labour. However, unlike most other EU member states—and some countries outside the EU—the UK is not part of the Schengen passport-free area because it hasn’t signed the Schengen agreement. This means it can retain border controls. The British government retains full control over its own border controls. Travellers who hold EU passports can’t cross the UK border without having their passport or identity checked, and the same applies for travelers from non-EU countries.

    So if you live in England and wish to sell your goods and services with the EU without paying cross border tariffs, your prospects just became a lot worse. How is that good for the UK economy?

    So who controls ICANN smart guy?
    My bet is there are more Americans involved than any other nationality.

  • [-4] June 24, 2016 at 4:48pm

    Wrong again, it does not control if and who gets anything.

    It coordinates IP addresses, making sure that all are unique and that they connect correctly. That is, ICANN coordinates these unique identifiers across the world. So when you’re sitting in your granny’s basement and click on “The Blaze” link you actually go to “The Blaze” website and not to I Love Big Black Butts.

    ICANN doesn’t control content on the Internet. It cannot stop spam and it doesn’t deal with access to the Internet.

    Figures that Mr. Trump would pick “Tehran” Tom Cotton they both have roughly the same foreign policy expertise.

    Memo to Mr. Cotton: Iran already controls Tehran, it’s their freakin’ capital you dolt!

    Agreed!

    “Lyin” Mr. Cruz takes fear mongering and demagoguery to a whole new level.

    He tried the same thing with Net Neutrality which is essentially keeping the internet as it is (just the way everyone likes it) and spun it as a government takeover of the internet.

    Now he’s complaining that the government is relinquishing control of the internet to ICANN.
    Un freakin’ believable!

    Does Mr. Cruz even understand what ICANN is or what it actually does?

    But I digress, this must be a first, Mr. Cruz is actually arguing that a US government agency is preferable to a non profit corporation. Unbelievable!

    The again Mr. Cruz thought Chuck Hagel was lobbying on behalf f North Korea.

    Ironically Mr. Trump made his statement from Turnberry, Scotland – Scotland voted to stay in the EU.
    So the “great businessman” who owns an iconic golf course in Scotland is essentially giving its people the middle finger.

    On the night of Barack Obama’s inauguration, a group of top GOP luminaries quietly gathered in a Washington steakhouse to lick their wounds and ultimately create the outline of a plan for how to deal with the incoming administration.

    “The room was filled. It was a who’s who of ranking members who had at one point been committee chairmen, or in the majority, who now wondered out loud whether they were in the permanent minority,” Frank Luntz, who organized the event, told FRONTLINE.

    Among them were Senate power brokers Jim DeMint, Jon Kyl and Tom Coburn, and conservative congressmen Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan.

    After three hours of strategizing, they decided they needed to fight Obama on everything. The new president had no idea what the Republicans were planning.

    A week before the first annual April 15th Tea Party rallies in 2009, Fox News promotions kicked into an even higher gear. Glenn Beck told his viewers, “We’re getting ready for next week’s Tax Day tea parties. All across the country, people coming together to let the politicians know, OK, enough spending.” Sean Hannity was even more explicit: “And, of course, April 15th, our big show coming out of Atlanta. It’s Tax Day, our Tax Day tea party show. Don’t forget, we’re going to have ‘Joe the Plumber’.” At times, Fox anchors adopted an almost cajoling tone. On Sean Hannity’s show, viewers were told, “Anybody can come, it’s free,” while Beck fans were warned, “You don’t want to miss it.” In an ironic moment, Arthur Laffer (inventor of the Laffer Curve that was used to justify Reagan’s supply-side economic the­ories) congratulated Beck on air for the success of the Tea Parties. “I’m just attending,” Beck quickly demurred, before continuing his promotion of the upcoming San Antonio Tea Party.

    Give me a break!

    Has Ms. Kelly forgotten 2009 and the whole FNC and the Tea Party rallies fiasco.

    A few weeks after Rick Santelli’s tea party rant on CNBC, Fox News soon recognized a major conservative phenomenon in the making and moved to become cheerleader-in-chief. Fox began to cover the first major tea party rallies six weeks in advance, starting with a March 5, 2009 appear­ance by Newt Gingrich to talk up the protests on Greta Van Susteren’s show. Scarcely a trickle of Tea Party events occurred over ensuing weeks, but that did not prevent Fox News hosts and guests from speculating wildly about the likely huge size and impact of the forthcoming rallies. Viewers watching Fox News in early 2009 were told that “Tea Party protests are erupting across the country” and assured that “these tea parties are starting to really take off.” Newt Gingrich went on air to make the confident prediction that the April 15th rallies would have “over 300,000” attendees.

    Forgot to mention that Scotland and Northern Ireland voted to stay in the EU.

    So what does that mean for the future of the United Kingdom? Clearly these regions are benefiting from the trade union. Scotland could finally claim it’s it long sought after independence and Northern Ireland can finally reunite with Ireland.
