Middle East? What the hell's going on there and how do we get out of it.

Meanwhile, the big concern is what server Hlllary used as Secretary of State?

This. A thousand times this. And when Clinton is sworn into office you know the first thing the GOP-led House will do is start a new "investigation" of her that will last her entire term. They will do nothing else, because they have already shown us that doing nothing--with the notable exception of conducting phony "investigations"--is the only thing they excel at. Then they will whine because she's not getting anything done.

And in the meantime, the infrastructure will continue to crumble, but the GOP House won't be able to find time, in between their pretend "investigations", to deal with it.

More like the left is showing they like keeping certain people in charge and making sure the rest of us working people take care of the so-called poor, called Democrat voters.

The last one is the only sticking point for Liberals, since they think they are more capable than everyone else of deciding what is best for everyone else.

Their need to control is so strong that they would give up all the other things to elect one of their own...even if she is unqualified.
tiny fraction? I don't think so. how many votes did Cruz get before he dropped out of the race? Not talking about how many states he won, how many votes did he get?

and then, how many religious nut bags voted for Trump once he gained momentum, because they knew that Cruz was a sinking ship.

Definitely not buying that its a tiny fraction.

Nevertheless - we need more than 2 RELEVANT parties in this country. There needs to be more than 2 just 2 sides!

I suppose the media drove all of the recent LGBT laws in the South?

BREAKING: Egypt Charges Obama and Hillary with Conspiring with Terrorist Muslim Brotherhood


It should be remembered that while the Muslim Brotherhood was in charge in Egypt, Obama showered them with praise and provided billions of dollars in aid, arms, tanks and planes. Egypt hasn’t forgotten the support offered to the Muslim Brotherhood by Obama, and has now charged Obama and Hillary Clinton for conspiring and collaborating with them and their terrorist activities. (H/T Western Journalism)
In two separate criminal complaints, Egyptian lawmakers have charged Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton with conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood.

President Obama has been named as an accessory to crimes committed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, with the charge reading that Obama “…cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes…”.
Hillary’s Connection To The Muslim Brotherhood And Her Multiple Private Emails With Her Muslim Assistant Huma Abedin Is Being Investigated For Muslim Brotherhood Connections | Walid Shoebat
Shoebat.com has spent quite some time revealing the Muslim Brotherhood and the Wahhabist connections of the Abedin family and it is perhaps the right time for all this to resurface again. We do not need just emails to prove it.
And just to give a glimpse of what we researched, it was Huma’s mother, father and brother who were neck deep as well as Huma with activism for the Wahhabists and the Muslim Brotherhood. Her mother Saleha Abedin is Vice Dean at Dar El-Hekma College in Saudi Arabia, Saleha was also one of the institution’s founders, along with Yaseen Abdullah Kadi—a designated terrorist by the U.S.—and members of the bin Laden family.
In 2010, Huma arranged for the Secretary of State to visit Dar El-Hekma where Clinton spoke alongside both Saleha and another Sisterhood member named Suheir Qureshi, who like so many of her colleagues, holds a Ph.D.

A rather psychotic little screed.

I give it 1.8 on a 10 point scale.

Well, they might shut down the federal government a time or two.

They'll work at undermining Social Security and health care for everyone. Cut funding for veterans care and so forth. We all know that.

And, of course, there's the ongoing attempts to shove their religious dogma down all our throats. Limit access to birth control... Why we allow churches who are involved in politics and legislation to be tax exempt is beyond me.

Really, why anyone votes for Republicans is beyond me.

Surely, no one believes their constant nattering about being the party of "fiscal responsibility" when the last Republican President to leave our nation in better economic shape than he found it was Eisenhower.

I'm wondering if the never ending attacks on the Clintons and President Obama are meant to distract citizens from the Republican's dismal performance.

Come November, we'll see if it works.

So true.
And the same is happening on the other side with Trump.

That is exactly what they do. Classified material is communicated across a closed government network, they issue specific devices and computers that can only be used on it. It's physically separated from the outside world to prevent hacking, these are steps you need to take to protect government secrets. It's a felony if that material is removed from that network when it's not been declassified, that has to be done by the agency that first classified it.
