she really seems to want to make this massacre happen (lied about the massacre in two other interviews and claimed soldiers were killed)

http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics...ssacre-repeat/

Have a look at the things she said about donald before he hired her. She lies for whoever pays her most. . Seems dangerous to normalise such behavior.
When it seemed like a mistake that was one thing. It now appears to have been a calculated word choice used more than once.

Serious question... How many times can the Justice Department try to get the ban reimposed before they're told to move on? Apparently, there's a one hour verbal meeting scheduled today.
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/06/u...ourt.html?_r=0
In this particular case, if the 9th circuit rules against them then I believe the Justice Dept has to appeal to the Supreme Court. There are other lawsuits going on around the country though, so I think regardless of what the 9th circuit decides this is not over. Not by a long shot.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Rumors are emerging that the police were told to "stand down." The Mayor of Berkeley was interviewed by one of the main local stations and actually said, "The police did a fantastic job." One of the newscasters he was sitting with was flabbergasted and asked HOW could you say such a thing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2RJI8F20Ew

I don't think it will be possible to cover up if TWO police departments were issued stand down orders. Things are getting very interesting and not in a good way...

Same here but on second thought it becomes clear why. Imagine apprehending a single rioter after catching him:
He resists so has to be forced onto the ground with a few police wrestling him down and keepin him nailed. Risk of many rioters close by so you'd probably need a double-digit number of police to protect them, and even then those on the floor would be easy(immobile) targets that are unable to defend themselves lest they let the culprit go. Which doesn't even consider catching him in the first place - think about chasing a young (probably fit) man in light attire by police who are heavily armed.

So reasons against chasing is probably a combination of
- fast and mobile rioters vs slow police (heavy gear) hence little chance to apprehend even one culprit in the first place
- protect the police: if they're isolated, which would definitely happen in a chase on foot, some would be up against many fiendish rioters some of which would attack from behind
- priority to protect the public rather than immediately catch the rioters
- act as potential target if necessary to keep bystanders (relatively) safe, hence only present the protected front to the rioters
- canalize the riot, preferably keep it stationary to limit damage

Thanks for stepping in to take Phos' place. Here are some facts: 70 y/o overweight, unpopular Trump, a "bulldozer that might get some results" on American's obesity epidemic? An epidemic that has been spiraling out of control for the last several decades, way before the PC anti-fat shaming movement began. Not to mention that the Republican party platform is basically, "be unhealthy as you want because 'Murica". They hated Michelle Obama's initiatives, I might add. The only way Trump will in any way be directly effective in getting people to lose weight is if his administration causes a famine.

And for the larger point: people in general being in shape and taking care of themselves =/= women being told to "dress feminine" by a boss who has a mixed track record (understatement of the century) with his treatment of women. HTH.
What happened to him /her ,Got impeached ?

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The U.S. said the two top lawyers representing the U.S. would not take part in Tuesday’s hearing, because of their past relationship with one of the world’s biggest law firms, Jones Day.
Instead, August Flentje, a longtime Justice Department lawyer, will argue the administration’s case.

Acting Solicitor General Noel Francisco is no longer involved

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Call me snowflake, but this video breaks my heart on so many levels!

First, for a town that has not been able to change with a changing world. Secondly, for the rude awakening that these good folks are going to have when they realize that coal ain't coming back/ the President's "promises" are just talk.

Very enlightening video.
