Charges never should have been brought. The prosecutor who did it who used to be a board member of the local PP should be sanctioned at the very least if not disbarred or removed from office for politically motivated persecution and frivolous prosecution
And yet that cobalt turd is worried about wasting more tax dollars.

How does bringing in someone with a lifetime rating of 0 with Conservative Review and others “move to the right”?

“The fact that so many right wing conservatives that own guns RSVPd to this event makes me feel extremely uncomfortable,” the student wrote. “We should be able to go to an event without worrying about our safety.”
If the kid wants to feel safe, they should go to the safest place on earth…..a gun show. When was the last time you ever heard of someone being shot at a gun show? I would feel safer with a bunch of right wing conservatives that own guns around me than I would almost anywhere else.

There is nothing sincere about the DNC anymore than there is about the RNC, other than retaining their power structure.

They say no your enemy, but sorry, I know this enemy well enough, I don’t need to suffer through hours of drudgery complaining about how evil america is, how we aren’t doing enough to combat global warming, how evil we are to minorities, how evil we are in wealth redistribution and how great communism, err socialism, errr progressivism, errr liberalism is.

Interesting how Bozell was a regular all over FOX before they started pumping Trump…. I would love to see him have a 30 minute media bias show every week on The Blaze
TheBlaze already has Dana... And Tomi. And Buck Sexton... haha. They don't have room for the guy.

WR – you are the one that needs to “grow some” It is not unintelligent to actually have principles and stand by what you believe in. You have abandoned your principles if you had any to begin with. You call this a “strategy”. I better strategy would have been to stand by your principles and support Cruz when you had the chance. Few Cruz supporters are going to support the progressive crony capitalist, ultimate insider who is a pathological liar and authoritarian. His scortched earth campaign against Cruz even continued post-convention as he went back to hitting cruz and his father. He is clearly not trying to bring cruz supporters on board, and sorry, he doesn’t get my vote just because he is “not hillary”. He needs to earn it and he is doing everything he can to drive me and other principled conservatives as far away as possible.

I can’t imagine anything that would get any Ted Cruz supporter to vote for Hillary. We just will leave that spot in the ballot empty or vote for Constitution party if he is on a particular state’s ballot. Everything Hillary is and believes is antithetical to a Cruz supporter.
Stop worshiping men, coward. Vote for strategy. Trump is a strategy. Stop being unintelligent and grow smarter.
Amen. I will NOT be responsible for putting either of these miscreants in charge of my children's future.

” including a healing of an ozone hole over Antarctica”
Wow, really? Taking credit for what we now know is a recurring natural phenomena? Banning CFCs didn’t alter the size or shape of it at all for 30 years, then suddenly it closed and observations showed that it was natural and that it opened and closed perpetually.

They are all scumbags. They could care less what their candidate has done in the past, what their candidate stands for, the fact that their candidate is against free market capitalism, that their candidate is only in it for their own power and wealth accumulation and that their candidate has no morals or principles.
Oh wait, are we talking about Clinton or Trump here?
You had me agreeing with you until your last line. The left will have you believe all the BS on Trump, don't let them sway you. Voting for Clinton is simply not an option and Cruz started a war he couldn't possibly win.
 July 23, 2016 at 6:52am
do you not understand the difference between “yes*I* can” and yes *you* will”? One is individual liberty you are taking into your own hands, the other is giving the power to a single individual to take over for you. That is Jefferson vs. Hitler.
Actually, the honest answer would be no. Benjamin Franklin said that "he who gives up essential liberty for security deserves neither," but that's where were at now and as Mark Twain said, "it's easier to fool someone than to convince them, they've been fooled." I used to think it was only democrats who were looking for government to solve all of their problems, but apparently it's a common trait in both parties.
 July 23, 2016 at 6:32am
he didn’t say either of those things. he talked about conscience, not whether your were conscious or not, which apparently you weren’t!
 July 23, 2016 at 6:25am
If people today still had a conscience and actually voted it, then The unindicted felon would get 0 votes, the pathologically lying crony capitalist con man would get 0 votes, The open border liberal libertarian nut job would get about 2000 votes and some constitution party candidate would sweep everything.
its a sick joke by progs. obama caught red handed financing opposition to netanyahoo. nothing even mentioned about it.
obviously you didn't get the memo - when a democrap does it, it's not illegal, kind of like when a cop lies, it's not lying

not sure what your point is RJJ, but agree agree with your facts. I made the same point about Trump’s 3/29 abrogation of the pledge, but even if he hadn’t, I wouldn’t have faulted Ted for not following it. Even if he hadn’t officially thrown it out, the nasty personal campaign of slander on his wife, his father, himself, I believe he is perfectly justified and he said nothing negative about Trump at all, he simply discussed principles. In fact, most of the booing was set up by Trump subordinates running through the crowd whipping them up so Trump could make his entrance. It was all a “destroy Cruz” movement since Cruz would never kiss Donny’s ring. I believe to thinking people it completely backfired, it is only Trumpanzees that don’t see it for what it really is.
 July 22, 2016 at 9:18am
So you are admitting that if you actually vote your conscience you cannot vote for Trump Rob?
 July 22, 2016 at 7:24am
To quote the infamous line “What difference, at this point, does it make?” Two sides of the same coin. Solid speech tonight even with several liberal policies thrown in, but who can believe anything he says at this point. He could give exactly the opposite keynote speech at the DNC next week and be just as believable as he was tonight. which is, not at all.
Maybe he would even be more believable, since those are the beliefs he held most of his life until he changed his mind on everything to appeal the disenfranchised low information segment of the republican party.
Marnin, I have to admit to having something wrong the other day. I actually did expect Ted to endorse Trump the other night but was not at all disappointed with his speech. The same speech that Trump and staff had transcripts to three days prior to when the speech was made. Trump and staff were even made aware by Cruz that he would not endorse him roughly three weeks prior also. Furthermore, it was Trump who declared the 'pledge' to be null and void on 29 Mar 2016.
RJJ - You are spot on. The Trumpers are running around talking about how Cruz was not a man of his word. It was Trump who backed out of the pledge and told Cruz he did not need him or expect him to endorse him.
trump is now going to sound more conservative than ever, as last nights speech indicated. Seems he needs those conservative votes after all.
not sure what your point is RJJ, but agree agree with your facts. I made the same point about Trump's 3/29 abrogation of the pledge, but even if he hadn't, I wouldn't have faulted Ted for not following it.

I don’t see why it was a gamble. He said nothing negative about Trump, said “vote your conscience” If that bothers Trump voters, then did they check their conscience at the door to become Trump supporters and are now embarrassed? He s don’t stay home in November, vote for principled constitutionalists UP and down the ballot (again, does that prickle Trump supporters because they know he isn’t a constitutionalist)?
He said vote for love over hate (again, Trump supporters, that an issue for you?) and then spoke all about freedom and principles.
You actually expect any more of an endorsement from someone who had been personally slandered, had his family slandered, had his father accused of plotting to kill JFK, etc.?
Trump abrogated the “promise” you all speak of so much on 3/29 when he said he wasn’t going to follow it, until later he was again (once he knew he would win).
Hypocrisy much? Or just very scared of self reflection and what you will actually see in the mirror for voting for the pathological lying, crony capitalist fraud?
The vote your conscience line was nothing but a dog whistle for that never trump crowd.
So you are admitting that if you actually vote your conscience you cannot vote for Trump Rob?
Vote your conscience was used over and over by beck or the never Trump dummies. So to steal the platform at the convention was dirty and low. As far as everybody ( even a 12 years old ) can see, cruz is done
Knau - probably because it's a true principle. You vote _for_ people who hold the same principles you do. That's voting one's conscience. And Cruz didn't "steal the platform". He was _invited_ by Trump to speak and Trump had a copy of Cruz' speech before he ever gave it. And what was exactly the content of the speech? It was support for anyone who holds the Constitution as the law of the land. It was support for the principles that once made America great. Trump could have taken it as a ringing endorsement for his policies. Why didn't he? Because Trump is no more a Constitutionalist than Obama! And that should come as no surprise to anyone who heard Donald say that he too would continue Obama's practice of using Executive Orders to rule!
What's to argue with?
Folks are just upset that he did not go on ad nauseum about how beautiful Donny is, how great a man he is, how fabulous he is, how he might be the closest thing to Jesus, etc.

NC should turn around and say fine. Raise the rent to ridiculous amounts for home games in Charlotte Colosseum. Let the team move somewhere else. Get rid of the bigots passing themselves off as “tolerant”
 July 21, 2016 at 9:03pm
@bhps – Trump couldn’t have stopped Cruz from speaking if he wanted to. Cruz could have placed his name in nomination as he met the qualifications, in which case he could not be refused as much time as he wanted to make his case. Instead Trump campaign knowing this (Insider Manafort knows how it works), made a deal with him to speak and knew before hand THERE WOULD BE NO ENDORSEMENT. This came as no surprise, which is why Trump people were seen in the audience whipping up the crowd asking them to boo, and Trump knew exactly when to enter knowing when the booing would start.
