If I told you that Democratic Party lobbyist Tony Podesta, whose brother John Podesta chairs Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, is a registered foreign agent on the Saudi government's payroll, you'd probably think I was a Trump-thumping, conspiratorial nutcase. But it's true.

The lobby firm created by both Tony and John Podesta in 1988 receives $140,000 a month from the Saudi government, a government that beheads nonviolent dissidents, uses torture to extract forced confessions, doesn't allow women to drive, and bombs schools, hospitals and residential neighborhoods in neighboring Yemen.

Multiple sources have confirmed that Sacramento Mayor, former NBA star, and UC Berkeley standout Kevin Johnson was hit in the face with a pie tonight at a farm-to-table dinner event -- then he tackled and assaulted the protester in a "bloody" brawl.

Interesting........ What if Trump did this?

In the latest edition of Campus Craziness, Brit Hume reported that students at one New Jersey college were forced to change the name of their "American Barbecue" because the descriptor could be deemed offensive.


ORLANDO -- Hillary Clinton gave voice Wednesday to a question on the minds of many of her fiercest advocates in her race against the controversy-prone Donald Trump: Why isn't she way, way ahead?

Well Et_Al ... I do....

"Justifiable Deadly Force by Officer" - Deadly force by a law enforcement officer may be justifiable: The officer is in the performance of his legal duty or the execution of legal process and reasonably believes the use of the force is necessary to protect himself or others from the infliction of serious bodily harm;

This argument cannot be used by a civilian

Crutcher wasn't an imminent threat unless you believe the judgments of both the firing officers that him splayed across his vehicle put them in danger.

Are you saying they were working together at the point of the "shooting"? I find the officers firing at the same time, too much of a coincidence.

They deemed him a threat because he didn't follow their orders

Thats not true, they let him meander back to his SUV without incident.

Why didn't the non-firing cops not feel like the others?

Fair question, from the cam view I had one officer was trying to figure out where to go he was behind the SUV and didn't see a thing, the other was behind the other officers, training I would think, would dictate not to shoot with fellow officers or innocents in front of you, or the line of fire..

The blue line doesn't recognize sex unless it's a female claiming harassment or discrimination, then you're more likely right.

So your position is that they recognize the racial lines but not the sexual? IMO Cops are a good ole boyz club, they protect their own, then they within that they protect their kin. They are human.....
