” taxi was stopped by individuals posing as armed police officers”
…Posing as police officers? They may well have been part of Rio’s finest.
The question asked by thisprayerwarrior can best be answered this way… the people who make out like bandits on each Olympic event are always to be the Olympic Committee members selecting sites.
What a pile of garbage the whole thing is. Who are these people? Who gets paid all of the money that Televisors of these events into various countries payout? It isn’t like only NBC pays out money, but every country has their own set of broadcasters that are putting up cash for the broadcasting rights into their respective countries. This is no better than the total corruption we see that takes place under the banner of the UN!
They hold this out as being an example of the kinds of things that the world needs more of, just a simple meeting of the world’s greatest athletes competing in a fair and honest event. While a pile of garbage. It is anything but that. If that were the case, we’d have 5 women who would have been competing for the all around gymnasts. Instead they limit it to two per nation. The Chinese, Russians and who know which other countries engage in win at all costs strategies and we see more money changing hands.
Brazil is promised that they’ll end up with piles of cash, but all they’ll really have left is decaying venues in 5 years, and tourists never coming back to this dump.

Pay the 10K. suit everyone you can name afterwards including the City. Why continue working for a City that refuses to protect their officers doing a good job?

And “Joe Gomez with the Fresno Police Department” was later accused by the press of being a White-Hispanic racist that supported the shooting because he was a thug but of a different race than himself.
Good shooting Mr. Store Clerk. Bring that aim a little higher next time and you can overcome the pernicious problems created by the State of California dumping the Death Penalty.

Perhaps he thinks Donald needs to learn how to play spades for those times when everyone is gathered in the War Room except for the President.

“I will shoot myself in both feet if the strategy I helped formulate to knock Ted Cruz out of the race by pushing Trump down everyone’s throats succeeds.”
For some reason this nation has entirely forgotten and attempted to defeat the very purpose for which the Electoral College was created. The re-writers of history would have you believe that it was implemented because communication in that day were slow and little was known about a candidate. BS. In fact it was the concern that communications were improving rapidly and media could more easily be used to sway opinions than in the past.
The purpose was to elect people to meet/correspond with potential Pres and VP candidates; ones who understood the Constitution & good government. A State might put forth a Favorite Son, but they also may find one of the other candidates was a person of sound understanding, good character and judgement, well qualified for the office.
Parties enacted a myriad of State laws restricting Electoral College Reps viting, mandating they must vote for specific candidates rather than voting their conscience. Sound familiar?
Change state law to allow for a better process of electing our Electoral College reps, removing mandates for restrictive voting and you just might be able to improve our end choice of the better of two dictators. Your (popular) vote is not for Pres/VP candidates but for Electoral College.
it was meant to keep a populis state from negating smaller states. but today in many states ex ny is now dictated by NYC. ca by La ans San fran,PA by philly and pitt. but i see no reason to mess with electoral college. but the state primaries should only be party members and who gets 50+1% runoff if theirs no winner.takes the state delegates no super delegates no dem voting rep no rep voting d this is the way most state and local elections go and concentrate primaries into 3 or 4 sections that vote not 2 in feb 1 march 4 apr it has become a zoo

Normally State or US Attorneys General would be looking into this kind of corruption of the Justice System. Fat chance on that one with this group in charge.

The truth comes out again, but true justice will continue to be denied.
As a part of ancient law, someone who falsely accused someone, once the falsehood is discovered, would face the same fate they were trying to push on the innocently accused.
The prosecutors must be friends under the protection of Hillary.

What was really important to me is that the message was as applicable to the current Republican Leadership and Congress as it was to the Dems.
I liked the presentation of the message. The film bordered on entertaining but seemed more informative instead. I hope it will help a younger less informed crowd understand better how it is that power over others is obtained and retained. Sadly I suspect that hope will go unfulfilled.
The con-game is afoot and this time they mean to destroy what little liberty we have remaining.

Because race has nothing to do with intelligence and reasoning abilities we can firmly state that his stupidity is totally owned by him, and what little training he received in complex thought was provided by social engineers and was successful in its goals.

In the words of Dr. Michael Savage – next time you see a gang of thugs heading down the street in the dark of night towards you, what number are you going to dial on your little i-phone, 9-1-1 or A-C-L-U?
My kids and grand kids could kick your sorry behinds any day of the week you weenie whining students. Why we spend a dime on “public education” at these institutions of lesser learning I’ll never know..

“I knew he leaned to the left, but he made an effort to not let it show.”
Mr. Linder – Perhaps it was the pretty NBC peacock that mesmerized you as you watched Tom in living color. We watched him on our old black and whites and his political leanings were pretty evident. Leanings??…they were more like daily shovings down the throats of a viewing nation that didn’t agree with his wacky liberal ideas…disguised as “news”. That, and his cohort Jane Polly (who married the most leftest political cartoonists of the day) really were not so subtle about what was to be heard and how it was to be heard by the little people.
Tom thinks that the Greatest Generation that went to war against Germany, was so great only because they had commie Russians as their ally.
While I find that the majority of the people in this country have much more conservative values than T.B. would lead you to believe, the problem is that these are the folks with the microphones – and they’re yelling in our faces everyday; spewing the same failing rhetoric spat out non-stop for the past 100 years.
It’s no wonder Talk Radio and the Internet pushed T.B., Jane, Dan, and the whole bunch of them into a little corner where they can all talk to themselves, pat each other on the back, and say, “I made a difference” instead of “I reported the news”. The difference you made was seldom for the better Tommy boy. Now shut-up and eat your milk toast.

Mike Schmuckaby then went into the convention where he cut a deal with John McCain down by the Florida Delegates to keep Mitt Romney out of the convention.
If so, then that was a great thing and more kudos to Huckabee. Romney? Again? No way, Jose.

“The Hatch Act prohibits federal employees in the executive branch from giving their political opinions while in their official capacity.”…but it does little to protect us from their forcing their political opinions upon us all.

“the employee who refused to serve the officers was subsequently fired.”
Immediately fired on the spot in front of everyone, would have been a little more to my liking.
I do have a problem with Taco Bell though. Recently some geniuses at Corporate decided to quit carrying the little packs of Green Chili Sauce. Instead they’re pushing some crap sauce another marketing wonder decided to name “Diablo”. The two sauces are NOTHING like each other and their Diablo sauce that they are pushing tastes like it may have been made with cigarette ashes. Apparently the Corporate Chef’s,like all of those other Chef’s I see, have smoked like stove-pipes for 40 years and have lost all ability for tasting anything.
I’ve been purchasing products from Taco Bell for over 50 years. I think I’m big enough to determine if I want green chili sauce or not with my burrito. Their Corporate geniuses are actiing just like the Obama regime…THEY know better than you do what you like to eat. It’s no wonder to me that an employee is telling the officers to get out of the place; they’re taking their queues from the jerks at Corporate.
They used to make these little things that were like street tacos and they were so good! But they quit carrying them! I still miss the Bell Beefer...
I think they think have a green prejudice. I'm still upset they quit putting green onions on their mexican pizzas and no longer buy them because of it. Now they no longer have green chili sauce? Come on, Taco Bell.
Good point. Where the hell was the manager? He/she should be walking too.
