A contested convention has been the goal from the very beginning of this election cycle. The mass quantity of candidates was there to assure that no one candidate would win 50% + 1 of the delegates (1237) in the primary/caucus process. The Republican nominee will be decided at the convention at the end of July.
This has prevented the Democrat controlled main stream media and DNC from blasting the nominee for a year before the november election even happens. Now they will only have 3 months to work with.

Try to understand something. When your job involves dealing with sensitive material and information that is likely to be classified there are security policies put in place to protect that information. You further have an agreement that you must sign (in order to hold that job) that outlines the penalties for breaking the security policies. Hillary willfully broke the rules specified in the security policy, an offense that caries heavy fines, loss of security clearance, and prison time.

Unfortunately, she could be indicted and convicted and it wouldn’t matter to the Dem faithful. The Dem faithful have been drinking the koolaid for so long that they will vote Dem no matter what. Laws don’t matter. Rules don’t matter. Honesty and Integrity don’t matter. You could have an axe murderer on the ballot for the Dems and they would still vote Dem. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, they simply don’t care.

The only reason Big O hasn’t been impeached yet is the Senate is held by the Democrats and the issue whould die as soon as it reached the Senate just as what happened with Clinton. If the control of the Senate changes to the Republicans in November, President Joe Biden will be giving the 2015 State of the Union address.
For what? He does not own the land he is sitting on. It is federal land! Legally the government has the right...as of now anyway.
He pays the feds a yearly lease. His INN costs the feds nothing, in fact they make money off of him. Maybe he needs to slow walk his payments from now on
booger, maybe. I think the BRP needs to be given back to the states. It is surrounded by state forest as it is, the differing regulations between the two have always bothered those of us who hike and camp here.
The GSMNP needs to go to Tenn and NC also.

If you haven’t read Farenheit 451 you really should. It is shocking how closely Bradbury’s “fictional” society matches up to our world today. Then after you’ve finished the book you realize it was written over 60 years ago.

Mr Berg, Are you really that incredibly stupid. Whether or not I like the congressman or not, I would not expect him to go out of his way to do an interview with you. You work for a backwater North Dakota TV station, While the congressman represents a district in Minnesota. You are so far down the media circus food chain you don’t even register a blip on the radar. I expect that the Minnesota media outlets (which you are not) get a different reaction.

Get this through your thick skull, Your employees are guilty of several FELONIES. You personally are an accessory to those crimes. You belong in the state prison. Keeping those facts in mind, you had better start bending over backwards to please this lady. If she wants $18,000, cut the check and consider yourself lucky to get off so cheap. Yep, the Banks shareholders are going to be unhappy with you and you’re likely going to lose your job. But guess what? You should!
If this lady goes forward and files criminal charges against you, your career in banking is over.
Get your head out of your butt and take responsibility for your mistakes.

This is no mistake. It is intentional and may be cause for the Judge to declare a mistrial. (Thus giving the Prosecutor some breathing room to get more creative.)

Watt, he is not liable for walking down a public street observing what is going on in his neighborhood.
Anybody can do that,

This entire situation is a sham. Our entire basis of justice is innocent until proven guilty. We also have the right to defend oneself. On the evening the altercation took place the police no doubt took statements from all the witnesses including the neighbor who saw Martin on top of Zimmerman punching and beating on him. The police didn’t arrest Zimmerman that night because an eyewitness saw Zimmerman being beaten. Zimmerman defended himself, case closed.
Months later the media and race baiters get involved stirring the pot raising the anger of the black community to the boiling point. So in an effort to appease them, we see an arrest, and a sham trial to give the appearance that the government cares.
In the meantime Zimmermans’ rights have been trampled, his personal life destroyed, the security of his family has been threatened, and the media ignors it. ABC, CBS, and NBC you should not only be ashamed but embarrased with the lack of integrity your empoyees have displayed.
The case against Zimmerman is criminally weak (pun intended). I worry he will be convicted anyway, regardless of all objective truth or evidence. The State must have order and the good of the welfare of State is far more important to it than the rights of one lonely man. The appease the mob I am sure The State will do whatever is necessary to convict him.
If he is acquitted, as he should be, I will be pleasantly surprised. Zimmerman best flee the country though. The State will not protect him from the urban mob that will put a price on his head. Zimmerman could afford to live comfortably on the proceeds of any book and interviews he might do, and any royalties to any film or tv dramas based on it.
Does Florida have a castle doctrine? Here in my state you immune from civil suits from cases of self defense under the doctrine. The Feds might try to prosecute like they did for the Rodney King case as a civil rights action.
The entire goal of this trial is an attempt to set a precedent to suppress the natural rights of law abiding free citizens. They want you deathly afraid of the state when criminals come to victimize you. The want you as a victim, there for the State agents to clean up after you have been murdered or brutalized. Broken and victimized and terrified citizens are easier for them to rule.
The alphabets should face criminal charges.
The Media always wants a race story to sell ... when they can't find one the create one. They want to have the stupid, mindless, raciest, bigoted people of all colors occupied with and consumed by these bull-S stories so they are not focused on the truth of what the media and government are doing to further control and enslave them ... the injustice of all this towards Zimmerman is over the top outrageous.
Pardon if this is a repost. My original seemed to disappear. The alphabet networks should face criminal charges.

It’s time to eliminate the Department of Education and restore all matters involving education to the States. Education is a State and Local issue and it needs to be delt with at that level.
Amen .. and unions have no business in the schools ... until then HOME SCHOOL!

She accomplished the main goal she had for seeking the office and that was getting the bridge construction project between Minnesota (in her district) and Wisconsin moving again after it had been stalled for decades. Groundbreaking for that project was yesterday and the project is underway.
She may see a couple of other political opportunities as well. Al Franken is up for election again and he is not well received accross the state. He is easy pickins for a well liked individual. The other opportunity is Gov’s job. The nitwit that is in their now squeaked by riding Barry’s coat tails. He is vulnerable and will most certainly be replaced after making some seriously bad political decisions.
One other possiblity for Michele is either she or someone in her family is seriously ill, and I hope that is not the case.
The sixth district electorate remains overwhelmingly conservative, even after recent re-districting. If a republican candidate is breathing they will defeat a democrat here.

This lady deserves ANSWERS not a load of political BS.
The Federal Government had damned well better be able to tell her in detail:
1. Why Security was so inadequate.
2. Why help was NOT sent.
3. WHO gave the order to NOT send help.
That is not too much to ask.
The rest of us would also like the answers to those questions as well as WHO created the pile of LIES that were fed to the American people in the weeks after the attack. Employees of “We The People” were killed while doing their jobs, and this administration acts as though it’s just business as usual.
Guess what boys and girls, it’s not business as usual. It is not acceptable job performance, and the time to make adjustments in leadership is WAY overdue.
After he's run through the wood chipper ... of course.
"He ran out of ammunition"; new mantra; limit the amount of ammunition a person can own to prevent domestic terrorists....and only allow FIVE round magazines.....I bet that would work so well, we could repeal 'gun free zones'......
Don't worry yourself', ..... where He Went, ... He Will BURN FOREVER !
Protestors shouldn't be upset with Mr. Stefan. I know him, and he is a really decent guy who also handles funeral services for 'financially challenged' families and those with no next of kin.
Be sure to bless the grave with the blood of swine and a few hot dogs
Why would his family want to bury him in the USA, which he stated that he hated? I am sure that someone from the all-caring, all-loving left would be more than willing to fund the flight home.
@OldNGrumpy, AGREE, he "deserves" nothing! Exactly what he got in his undignified exit from this planet. One less puke breathing our air...cremate him and send his ashes to his parents
First of all, a Wood chipper is too, well, clean. Get a rope. Find a tall lamp post near the Finish line. Know we know why his new nickname is "Speed-Bump".
Cause of death &&&& ISLAM &&&&.
My idea would be to grind up this Potato nose, and put him in the food we are feeding to his stupid brother. I wonder if he would still get his 72 Virgins with moustaches?
Wrap him in pigskin ... then add his sorry ass to the city dump.
Hmmm a proper burial? under an outhouse comes to mind! nothing less for a child maimer and killer.
If I were the marketing manager of Mercedes Benz, I would come out with a slogan like ; Our SUV' s suspension is so good, you can drive over your own brother and never even feel it...
City dump is too good for this murderous bastard; we need to ship his ass back to Chechnya or wherever... American soil will spit him up from Hell it his body is placed in our ground!
Touché, my thoughts exactly.

People need to read more and study world history. Islam is a predatory faith and it always has been. Throughout history muslims have never got along with non-muslim neighbors. It is impossible to get along if your paith tells you that non-believers of your faith are to be killed because they are infidels.
So long as they maintain the “It’s my way or death” doctrine in their religon, they won’t be able to live peaceably with anybody who is a non-muslim. They cannot live here in peace, so it’s time for them to go.

Rest in peace Pat. You were a long symbol of the changing of the seasons. When we heard your voice we knew another summer was at end, fall and football was again at hand. We will miss you.
April 6, 2013 at 7:22pm
I’m making a wild ass guess, but I suspect that local government decided the gun shop was an undesired business and they rezoned the property. The gun shop no longer complies with the new zoning restrictions. Somebody put a little hint in BATF’s ear and bye bye FFL License. (To get an FFL, you need to have a legal storefront.)

Don’t believe for one second that the AWB is dead. Diane will introduce it as an ammendment and it will get back in again. Don’t let up on the pressure to your legislators, this ain’t over by a long shot.
