They can send them back to the donors, but they are also allowed to shift them over to another person’s campaign who’s running for president. He could also keep the money for his next presidential run. I don’t know for sure, but i don’t think he can use it for his senate campaign, unless there was some language in the contribution forms that allowed it.
Can Paul use them for his Senate run?
He still has that one coming up against some Mayor.
I think Rand Paul is better suited for the Senate. He can do more damage to the GOP and they deserve to be damaged.

He handed out 20,000 tickets and 5k showed up. That’s 25%, take out the protesters and lookie loos and he’s pulling under 20%.

Probable cause was the arrest warrant signed by a Federal Judge for crimes related to the occupation of government land.

If he’s in control of the not-for-profit then he can doctor the numbers to make it look like he raised a huge amount of money for Vets on this night, even if the event is a bust as far as donations. If it was directly going to a separate third-party not-for-profit vet group, it wouldn’t be as easy to manipulate the numbers.
Clever Trump, always takes care to make sure he doesn’t ever look like a failure.
There is also the possibility that he actually gives the money to vets. We know the VA has been squandering it and not giving any services.

Since when is running and hiding behind wounded veterans “having a pair”?

Last Fox News debate had 24 million viewers. According to Greta’s poll 17% of the people will watch the debate. Currently there are around 300 million people in the U.S. If 17% is accurate that means 51 million people will watch the debate. Math is fun.

She was announced as moderator months ago. Trump is using this as a smokescreen because he thinks the debate can only hurt his chances in Iowa.

wigone, having conversations with yourself is a troubling sign. You should get that checked out. Also, the choice isn’t between Trump and Clinton. I would choose the 5 other serious republican candidates over Trump any day of the week. They don’t run when things get tough.

How can this guy meet the needs of the children in his care through the foster system, if he’s in another state? Wouldn’t it be reasonable for the children to be removed from his care if he’s not providing what he signed up to provide?
Exactly. His first and foremost duty would be to the children entrusted in his care, rather than going on rabble rousing in other states.
It is pretty damn sad to realize your mentality, and those just like you. His wife was taking care of the children, in case you purposefully didn't read that part ("kids were taken from his wife"). And based on your though process, every person on welfare should have their children taken away (they should never have children to begin with). It would be nice for the government to one day turn totally Conservative (never happen because of the welfare voters), and the government start harassing all of you idiots the way you liberals harass people that believe in the Constitution.
Government kidnappers agree with you, and thank you for your support.
Then every fatherless welfare baby should be taken into custody.

Do you equally feel that people who believe the seditionists should do some research and prove the allegations they’ve made?

He is a natural born citizen because by the virtue if his birth he was an American citizen and did not have to be naturalized.
Anyway, Trump always claims that he has the “best attorneys in the world”. They looked at it in September and said there was no issue and Cruz was eligible. What changed? Is Trump saying his own attorneys are wrong? Or in reality is Trump so petty that he doesn’t care what the truth is?
Facts and reality seem to have little meaning for these diehard Trumpettes.
Don knows Cruz is eligible he's just slinging mud to cloud the waters and confuse the electorate.
The absense of modern 'naturalization' does not constitute natural born.....It is not the same.
The Constitution says nothing to indicate any sort of 'naturalization' - that was created by Congress after the Constittuion. Therefore, a definition of what 'natural born citizen' cannot be defined by the absense of naturalization.....No, it was something more than that.
The naturalization process is what is done when someone is NOT a natural born citizen. Cruz was born naturally a citizen.
You Cruzers are so blind to facts. THE WASHINGTON POST ALREADY HAD ARTICLES ON THIS. THEY ASKED TRIMP HIS OPINION.TRUMP SAID , LIKE HE HAS BEFORE, HE THINKS CRUZ IS ELIGIBLE BUT ITS A CAMPAIGN PROBLEM CRUZ NEEDS TO TAKE CARE OF.
Don't blame Trump cause CRUZ didn't take care of his own business.
If the mud fits on the shovel, it can be slung. Bush really demonstrated his reflexes with the shoe toss in Iraq. They kept missing him both before and during his presidency. Cruz OTOH might be in for a pasting. I have a great deal of appreciation for how the Obama birther idiocy has infected the very people who promoted it in the first place, karma baby.

Trump offered Cruz the VP spot? He has to know that if he thinks Cruz isn’t eligible for president then he isn’t eligible for VP right? He has to. He can’t be that dumb right? That would be ridiculously dumb.
I think he did it as a joke, as Cruz' response to offering Trump was. so many calling for Trump/Cruz ticket just don't get it. Their policy idea are so different, Cruz would NEVER be VP in a trump ticket. They try to excuse Trump's lack of constitutional behavior as "VP Cruz will keep him in line" not a chance, he wouldn't be on the ticket, and VP is pretty irrelevant anyway unless the President dies. The VP is just a shill for the president's agenda.
keep your head down, the wheels might hit you when the next one goes over
The Constitution has no such requirement for VP only the Pres.
But if Cruz were VP and disqualified Trump could still carryout his duties as President and appoint a new Natural Born VP.

Explain where you find here that this bill gave illegals public funds. All it did was charge the kids in-state prices as opposed to out if state prices.

My Freshman year in college i played on a tennis team with some Moroccans who were Muslim. This was before 9-11 so tensions weren’t high and discussing religion was no big deal. From their perspective they worship the same God, but believe that Christians were wrong and that Jesus was not the prophet the Old Testament spoke about, Muhammad was. They also don’t agree with our belief in the God is both 1 and 3 concept which raises Jesus up as more than just the son of God but also Gog himself. (FYI, this was hotly contested in the early Church and after a big meeting the Books of the New Testament that didn’t follow the 1 and 3 concept were destroyed.)
I won’t assume that these 4 Muslims had a monopoly on the Muslim belief tenets, but it was how they described it to me.
FYI, when talking to Moroccans, don’t refer to the French as “their former employers”, not even as a joke. They don’t like it.

Sigh…Would Beck please cite the federal statute the Judge violated and what that statute proscribes as the possible punishment?
No, BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ONE. It's just Beck throwing out meat to his mindless minions.

Winston, not citing CNN for veracity. It’s all the same AP article, CNN just had the whole one with the part about the government’s evidence. It bugs me when blaze edits certain portions of articles out. Regardless of the issue I’d like to be fully informed on what each sides position is so I can make an informed decision about what I think is right. The additional sentence is the worst part of this. What it sounds like was that the Judge tried to impose a sentence he thought was right but that the federal law they were con c cited had a mandatory minimum sentence on it so the Judge had no jurisdictional authority to impose a lesser sentence. Bundy’s have seized a federal building. They are in the wrong and have broken a ridiculous amount federal laws. They literally took up arms against the U.S.A. and have taken our land. Taking it back with any amount of force is 100% justified.

Then you need to read this:

CNN article has full story, including what government’s evidence was. They had an eye witness who saw Hammonds kill at least 7 deer on federal land without a permit. Then a relative of Hammonds testified that they set the fire to cover up the improper killing of the deer. Fire burned through 130 acres and shut down use of the area to all other permitted ranchers for 2 years. Trier of Fact believed government’s evidence over the Hammonds, they got there day in court and lost. Bundy believes the government shouldn’t exist and therefore shouldn’t own land. They believe they should be able to use all land, even if they don’t own it, for their benefit to the exclusion of all others.
Sighting CNN? Seriously? Why not sight Pravda on the USSR, that would be equally creditable. The original crime is NOT the issue. This judge seeking to impose a new penalty is. This should have been fought in court, not with this kind of grandstanding protest which will get headlines but little else. The only way this becomes bigger is if one side starts shooting. First side to shoot will be the PR losser!

From someone other than Pravda USA ...
