The wording of the Espionage Act only requires gross negligence, not intent. So James Comey is dishonorable by his suggestion that the standard is intent.
While I do believe that HRC didn’t intend to harm the USA, I do believe her actions were intentional, not merely “extremely careless” (a.k.a. gross negligent). I am confident her real purpose for the personal servers was to evade FOIA scrutiny while covering her corruption through the Clinton Foundation. Those many $250k speeches were really just money laundered bribes.

I have noticed long ago that Obama’s oration skills are waaaaay overrated.
But aside from the lack of smoothness, the real problem with Obama is his substance. What he is basically saying is that you are a bad person if you don’t agree with his radical Leftist agenda. But I don’t give a cr*p what that radical Leftist believes or says. I resist and fight the further radicalization of America, a.k.a. the “fundamental transformation of America”.

Mills having a law degree does not make her Clinton’s lawyer. They keep twisting the language such that it no longer has any meaning.
The law is only for us great unwashed masses to follow, not for the ruling elites. I used to say we are getting more and more like Mao era China. Now, I am starting to think we are looking more and more like North Korea with the law not applying to the ruling class.
Right on point -- in order for the privilege to be in effect the relationship has to be established or such that it is obvious that establishment of the atty-client relation is imminent. Unless Mills was employed as legal counsel to the secretary, that relationship didn't exist.

Since when does Obama believe in capitalism? Ans.: never. I don’t trust him. He is up to something that he isn’t telling, as he always has before.
It's called "More government control of everything in our lives" Nothing more to it.

I used to live in Micronesia. That is pretty much the lifestyle there.
The main pastimes are visiting friends and getting a buzz with alcohol or locally grown plants, not necessarily both at the same time.

The challenge of landing on the ship is what makes it that much cooler and impressive engineering accomplishment.

I had thought for a long time that Ms. Fiorina would be a good VP candidate. Traditionally, the VP is the attack dog (no suggestion of the B word was intended) of the ticket. Of all the GOP candidates, she was the best by far, IMO, in making the case against Hillary. Though she wasn’t my first choice as president, I felt she would make a competent president.

That sounds like sound advice to me. I know of and have been to places in the world where one would be wise to follow that advice.

I expect firing under stress to be a major impairment of accuracy. I have been in a self defense situation. I was shaking like a leaf for probably another 10 minutes after the situation was over.

I have been in a self defense situation before. The stress and adrenaline will make most people shake like a leaf. Unless you have had military or LEO training or some other training to deal with the self defense situation stress, I doubt you can hold still to control your shots well.

I have been in a self defense situation before. My heart was racing like mad. It wouldn’t be easy to hold a handgun steady in such conditions. Andrew Cuomo rants like a mad man “You don’t need 7 shots to kill a deer”. Cuomo conveniently ignores the fact that home invaders aren’t deer that aren’t moving much because you don’t know you are there, and deer aren’t usually trying to hurt you so you don’t have the same degree of adrenaline rush. I understand the shaking like a leaf under stress (in fact, I was shaking for quite a while after the self defense situation was over) and I understand the challenge of shooting a handgun accurately even under good conditions and shooting at something that isn’t standing still.

That PIT was pretty cool. Beautifully executed.

Those were pretty solid blows. I think the victim was lucky that he wasn’t even worse off.
I am not blaming Trump yet for such things, but he needs to affirmatively speak out against such actions. There are more ways than violence to deal with the rally disrupters.
You want Trump to say: “Hey black people in the audience, please ignore the agitators wearing the KKK garb. By the way, please get up, and give them your seats.”
That’s what Obama would do before having the DOJ investigate the supporters like the DOJ fined St.Louis cops and Ferguson.

IMO, Trump does not need to put up with having his message suppressed. My problem is how he chooses to deal with it. There are more choices than inaction or an iron fist. Voters need to start asking whether President Trump will view options as only binary.
"There are more choices than inaction or an iron fist. "
More choices like what exactly?! Name them and be specific. My guess is, you can't.

No way would Cruz be praised for that. You have got to be kidding. Cruz gets NO praise from anyone but conservatives. Conservatives praise him for sticking to conservative principles. Dealing with protesters with violence or soft violence would absolutely NOT be praised by conservatives.

States are incapable of conducting fair trials????!!!!! She is basically saying that states are not legitimate and that all power must be centralized in the national government. Yes, I know Progressives think that way but she hit it home. We must not elect her president. It will be more progress towards totalitarianism.
Perfect example how liberals are anything but "progressive" . It has always amazed me that the GOP has allowed liberals to hijack that word and adopt it as their identity since most of their policy is anything but.

What does empathy have to do with a SCOTUS justice? When I serve on a jury, I am to decide according to the evidence and the law. Empathy is irrelevant. I expect a SCOTUS justice to judge according to the law. It is not justice if done otherwise.
These Leftists infuriate me by their twisted thinking.
It is a very common business model for a company to design the produce and contract another for manufacture it. This the case with nearly all semiconductor companies for the last 20 years. These are called “fabless semiconductor” companies. Most semiconductor companies don’t have large enough volumes to make it economically viable to have their own fabs. Two of the semiconductor companies I worked for previously are fabless and they very much have real businesses that have sold tens of millions of chips. But even tens of millions of chips cannot economically justify the company owning its own fab.
I think it is legitimate for a business not to do its own manufacturing. Amazon.com is quite a legitimate business and it doesn’t manufacture anything it sells. Neither does WalMart, which is also a legit business.
BUT – for Trump Steaks to be a legit business, IMO, does it have staff and sales and profit and files its taxes as its own entity?

If “getting one’s life back” is THE justification and the standard, a lot of evil can be justified. A lot of crimes are rationalized with that reasoning, at least in the mind of the criminal.
In my mind after decades of pondering the issue, I have concluded for myself that the only relevant question is, “At what point is it a human life?” Once that question is answered satisfactorily, the answers to the other questions related to abortion are obvious.

I read somewhere else that Trump has a history of being sensitive about the size of his hands, a bit like Obama about his ears. So Rubio is just trying to p*ss off Trump, not really trying to increase voter support with this.
