The harder he tries to lose, the more popular he becomes.

OF COURSE, he could, ESPECIALLY if it was a black or Latino! Now, if it was a white guy or gal, then he might have to do some explaining, but this could all be done with "that person was an undesirable." And, do not fret, Trump would not spend ONE hour in jail or probably even be charged with a crime (notice the right wing freaks who have taken over a wild life refuge and have sacked it!--no charges and a friendly handshake from the sherrif. Not the case with three blacks that did this over a decade ago.) Well, Trump, the same could be said for Adolf Hitler. He could have killed anyone and no one would not have objected. This is the difference between you and Bernie Sanders or Hillary.It would be game over for either one of these with their followers. Kind of shows the difference between right-wingers and those who are liberals, huh?

This man is absurd, and his "fans" are even more absurd.

What he actually said: "They say I have the most loyal people - did you ever see that? - where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody, and I wouldn't lose any voters,"

Although was it Trump coming up with this out of the blue or was he quoting someone else? Who is the they, in “They say?”

MacWilliams wrote in Politico. In an online poll of 1,800 Americans, conducted in late December, he found an authoritarian mindset—that is, belief in absolute obedience to authority—was the sole "statistically significant variable" that predicted support for Trump.

By posting this I'm not making a comparison to 1930's Germany because I don't believe history repeats itself in perfectly identical ways. Mighty similar, however.

You can't stop Trump. He represents the millions of the scared, gun-loving, arrogant, racist Americans. Sadly, there's really nothing anyone can do to stop him, even those in his own party. I say, let him win. He'll be worse than Bush Sr. and Bush Jr. combined. Hopefully I'll find a new country to reside in before then. Wish me luck.

Cruz picked up the endorsement of conservative firebrand Glenn Beck, a counterweight of sorts to Trump’s endorsement by 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

What an outstanding group of human beings leading the GOP pack.

No rational person running for president would say something like that. But then again Trump and his Trump mobsters are not rational people.

I keep thinking Trump is the insane guy raving on a street corner and Cruz is the insane serial killer leading a relatively quiet but equally twisted existence. Both are equally terrifying should they ever gain the presidency.

Trump is about as 'Christian' as my dog's best friend is a fire hydrant. Fido uses it when convenient, but that's about it.

Many Americans think Trump is nuts and are afraid of him. I'm pretty sure Putin and Xi will be also.

Choosing a president in the US is so screwed up. I've been reading that even if Sanders soundly wins the nomination, that Hillary will use her "super delegates" to unseat him. What's up with that? Would any of you prefer another Bush? I will vote for Trump or Sanders, never Hillary. Why Trump? Because he's not a politician. People are tired of this right/left BS, and that's where Trump comes in. Any comments of his should be taken as campaign rhetoric, nothing more.

scared, gun-loving, arrogant, racist Americans

This is total BS. You might as well connect your brain to CNN and just mouth what ever they say. One more time, people are TIRED of politicians, TIRED of the MSM that controls the message, TIRED of watching these two parties put their interests first before the peoples interest. I have no idea what Trump will do if he gets elected, but I know what the Dems and Reps will do, nothing different. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who votes for a Dem or Rep should be ashamed of themselves for continuing this charade for the last 35 years since Reagan.

Trump clearly looks down on his supporters, continually patronizes them, and obviously feels substantial contempt toward them.

Could it be that he is running a reality show production, not a political campaign? The longer I watch the GOP race unfold, the more I suspect that he is trolling/punking us all.

I know it seems somewhat unlikely, but just possibly when all is said and done he will stand in front of the cameras and say, "gocha!" He will then tell the world that his campaign was all an orchestrated farce — that he wanted to show how absurd the political system really is, and how malleable and easily manipulable the masses really are. If so, he will have crafted an epic hoax that people will refer to for generations to come, and the ultimate reality show.

I know that scenario seems far-fetched (I'd give it a 5% likelihood of panning out), but I wouldn't put it past him and wouldn't be completely surprised if that is what happens in the end.

Sioux Center, Iowa (CNN) Donald Trump boasted Saturday that support for his presidential campaign would not decline even if he shot someone

What a sick, sick person.

How some are drawn to this adolescent appeal surely defines the content of the Trump fan club.

As far as content of Trump's character? Moral bankruptcy and elderly temper tantrums seems a lousy resume for the Office of the President.

As an Italian, Trump reminds me of Berlusconi. But he is way more dangerous and even more absurd.

"Many Americans think Trump is nuts and are afraid of him. I'm pretty sure Putin and Xi will be also."

Rather than fearing him, Putin seems to have a bit of time for Trump. Talk of shooting people will no doubt endear him to Putin further.

Do you spend every waking moment thinking about/hating China?

No rational person running for president would say something like that.

Really ? Some of you people are the ones that clearly reek of desperation. Trump was making fun of the media for saying it in the first place. The audience was laughing and clapping. Humor often isn't rational, obviously, .

@Jimizo

I had to laugh at that because it is painfully true. Kindred spirits no doubt.

Trump delivers the possibility that the U.S. could have its own Putin at the helm. Plus, with Palin his likely pick as VP running mate, what possibly could go wrong?

Oh, Pie!JAN. 24, 2016 - 08:20AM JST You can't stop Trump. He represents the millions of the scared, gun-loving, arrogant, racist Americans. Sadly, there's really nothing anyone can do to stop him, even those in his own party.

Sure you can. It's called the general election. And months of GOP fighting over their base have given democrats ample fuel for winning it. Check Trump's numbers - he may have the majority of Republicans, but he doesn't have anywhere near the majority of the nation.

Y'know, he's probably right. He's still a pathetic loser, though. John Lennon had the guts to say, "We're more popular than Jesus now" - and he was a glasses-wearing socialist! I'd be more impressed if the Donald took his schtick in that direction: "Jesus - yuuuge guy. Lotsa fans, topped the polls. Still crucified. He's revered 'cause he was crucufied. I like people that weren't crucified, OK?"

What Trump ACTUALLY said:

"They say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that?" Trump said to his supporters in Sioux Center, Iowa. He continued: "Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody. And I wouldn't lose any voters, OK? It's like incredible."

What the authors of this article claim Trump said:

By Steve Holland and Ginger Gibson World Jan. 24, 2016 - 07:15AM JST ( 14 )

PELLA, Iowa — U.S. Republican front-runner Donald Trump expressed confidence on Saturday that he could push back attempts by his rivals to knock him off his top perch, saying he could stand in New York’s Fifth Avenue “and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters.”

It appears that Steve Holland and Ginger Gibson are attempting to create the news, instead of reporting the news. Trump was actually talking about what OTHER people have said about him.

But why let the truth get in the way of a good political smear?

5 ( +9 / -4 )

That's why we should all vote for Bernie.

Many Americans think Trump is nuts and are afraid of him. I'm pretty sure Putin and Xi will be also.

It's sad how many 'mericans think that 'fear' is a good thing. We don't need a POTUS that is feared, you do recall we have the strongest military and the largest economy, right?

I'm not a Trump fan (in fact I think he's a raving megalomaniac) but what Lizz said is true and the Reuters article somehow omits that part of his sentence.

Trump was quoting unnamed sources who had supposedly said (as an example of how mindlessly faithful Trump's supporters are) that Trump could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue, shoot people, and his supporters would still be with him.

Once again this is Trump pulling his "others say" routine so he can claim total deniability. More than likely, it was ONE Trump fanboy who said it and of course Trump turns it into "others".

What an extremely asinine thing for someone to say. Oh yeah, the Donald said it !

@arrestpaul

I don't see what you are getting at. The direct quote in and of itself, in context, is a well-deserved, self-inflicted "political smear" revealing Trump's true colors.

It certainly makes him seem no less abhorrent and megalomaniacal than the paraphrased reporting of Holland and Gibson.

Remember, Trump said this with pride as if his invincibility thanks to the mindless "no matter what" loyalty of his supporters were a good thing, contrasting himself against the other GOP candidates whose support, as he said, is either “soft” or “they have no people.”

That still begs the simple question, was Trump outraged by the statement, or proud of it?

You are clearly missing the boat here. He is obviously being criticized not for originating the statement, but for agreeing with it and regarding it as a good thing that he is so popular that he could shoot somebody and not lose any voters — which clearly shows how much he looks down on his supporters.

0 ( +4 / -4 )

Trump does have a lot in common with Putin it seems. Putin also shoots people in the street and he stays in power. That is why they praise each other. Oh, just a few months ago the red dog republicans were saying Trump was a passing fancy. No, Trump is your leader and is exactly what the republican party has become since the Tea Party types took over. That is white, angry, paranoid, a puppet for the rich, racist and totally clueless. Many liberals predicting the end of the republican party years ago and now we see it playing out in full. The republicans are a sick, sick organisation now and need to go the way of the Whigs. The USA and the world will be better off when Trump puts the dagger in the heart of the republican party.

Trump may have been repeating someone else's words (though I don't see that his comment really says that), but even if he is - he also said the words, and with the belief behind them. So who cares if he was repeating someone else's words - he said them too which makes him culpable for them.

Confident Trump says he could 'shoot people' and not lose voters

Maybe he should try shooting his own voters, just to test that theory out. Will he still be so sure once he has no voters left?

So who cares if he was repeating someone else's words - he said them too which makes him culpable for them.

You'd think so, but because he invoked the vague "they say", anyone who tries to take him to task for saying it will get threatened with a lawsuit, GUARANTEED. It's the Trump modus operandi.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

It's like if he said "they say that all Jews should be executed" and expecting to get away with it because Hitler said it first.

If you repeat someone's words, then they also become your words. Unless you are clear in the repetition that you don't agree with the words.

Yes, hating a dictatorship that gives the Chinese people no say in their government and is threatening all of Asia. Why do you spend ever waking moment defending such evil? Nationalism gone to your head?

-5 ( +5 / -10 )

Donald Trump appeals to the under-educated, mostly white male, portion of the population who see conspiracy theories behind every blade of grass. That portion of the electorate typically votes Republican, even though the "party" has done nothing for them, and they see Trump as a savior of their "rights" and entitlements.

They are the voters who are typically covert (well maybe many overt) racist and think America is going to hell because of diversity. Trump plays on their fears and pushes the right buttons that make them think he is "one of them" Yet the reality is he is the furthest thing from it.

I get the impression that Trump is the rich man's version of Al Bundy from "Married with Children"

I can't remember ever defending the CCP. I have defended Chinese people against ignorant, hateful people who never have and never would set foot in the country.

World peace and stability would be under a far greater threat from another war-mongering, rich-kid rightist leading the USA than from China.

Nationalism gone to my head? I'm not sure what you mean by that. I despise nationalism and patriotism. By the way, your handle is an interesting one.

Kinda like Sanders is becoming the leader of the Democrats. That's equally as frightening that we have a 74 year old Brooklyn Bolshevik trying to get into the White House.

That is white, angry, paranoid, a puppet for the rich, racist and totally clueless.

So what about the Blacks and Hispanic (Americans that are voting for Trump)?

Many liberals predicting the end of the republican party years ago and now we see it playing out in full.

Well, it's amazing how you liberals supposedly are for freedom of speech and diversity and yet, you guys want a one party progressive movement. As I have always said, liberals are a lying bunch. But I will submit to you this and something that you libs need to understand, but for some reason don't. The Democratic party is the exact mirror opposite of what the GOP is going through. The difference is, Trump is very entertaining and sucking out all the air out of the room and the Democrats are beyond boring. Watching Clinton and Sanders together is mustering all the strength in your body to watch them without falling into a deep coma. But make no mistake, most people are not happy with another Clinton presidency either and many are flocking to this old socialist. Now you are starting to see the liberal divide.

The republicans are a sick, sick organisation now and need to go the way of the Whigs.

And the Democrats and this admin. are beyond pathetic and you wonder why Trump is gaining???

The USA and the world will be better off when Trump puts the dagger in the heart of the republican party.

As well as Sanders does to the Democrats.

Donald Trump is a loose canon and divisive. However he is a self made billionaire. He has got many pretty women. He can travel with his own big plane. He is free from pleasing powerful lobby groups as their representatives. He can spend his own money for the campaign. He can talk anything as he wants.

It makes him unique for becoming honest candidate for next president. He does not need any of the political correctness.Thomas Jefferson said I prefer not to lose Liberty over winning more votes with Lies and broken promises.

At least, Trump may be a better President than current one.

True, Trump is smart enough to use the "entertainment" system that's been electing presidents for the last 35 years. It's what's in the heart that matters, right? And I see only a black hole for Hillary. I see true heart in Sanders and will vote for him ONLY if I think he WILL break-up the banks.

I lived in Japan from 1995 to 2005 and reside in the US now. I'm not sure how many American posters on this site actually reside in Japan, but to those of you who do my comments are for you:

You can say what you want about Trump meteoric rise. You can be for him or against him. My comments are not about that. When you live in Japan to a certain degree you are living in a box. I know because I experienced it first hand. Your only news about what's going on back home comes from the tv, internet, magazines, emails/phone calls to friends and families back in the states, etc. I say this not as a bad thing, but because it is the truth. Now, I will try to convey to you what I am am experiencing at work and in everyday life in America. 60% (White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, etc.) of the American people (and all political parties) are absolutely fed up with the direction of the country. Right-leaning people are angry because of the direction the country has taken under President Obama. Left-leaning people are either disappointed or downright angry because they believe President Obama hasn't taken the country even further to the left. NOBODY CAN BE SATISFIED! The other 40% of the American people are basically "out to lunch" and couldn't care about anything outside of their own lives.

Trump is equally hated by all of the establishment (Republican and Democrat). The Republican establishment, especially the elitist highly educated George Will-types, cannot believe that Trump has essentially "jumped the line" and is beating all of the other candidates. They are seething with rage and it is easy to see (hear) their frustrations by watching any of the establishment talk shows and publications (i.e. "The National Review"). My personal opinion is that the Republican establishment would be just as butt-hurt if Cruz was leading in the polls. The Democratic establishment thinks Donald Trump is a dangerous buffoon because of his political views. Either way both establishments are missing the whole point.

As I said before, 60% of the American people who more or less hold middle-right or middle-left political opinions are so damn frustrated with the direction of the country over the past twelve years (4 of Bush Jr. and 8 of Obama). They are frustrated over many things such as wage stagnation, political correctness, poor education for their children, rising health care costs (Affordable Health Care Act be damned), uncertain employment, terrorism, illegal immigration, the national debt, etc. Underlying all this is both parties are so beholden to special interest groups and lobbyists that almost nothing gets done for the sake of the American people. Both parties are to blame. The average American worker DOES gives a damn about the country. So many times over the past two or three years I have heard many fellow Americans say things like, "All these career politicians are screwing us over. It's like the politicians don't give a damn about doing the right thing. They're all crooks. And the most important thing.... I WISH SOMEONE COULD COME ALONG AND BLOW THIS THING UP. HOW ABOUT A RESET ON CONGRESS! WE NEED PEOPLE IN OFFICE WHO ARE MORE LIKE THE FOUNDING FATHERS WHO SERVED IN OFFICE FOR A TERM OR TWO AND WENT BACK TO THEIR FARMS OR BUSINESSES.." I hear these things in everyday life; work, waiting in line at the Post Office, waiting at the car wash, sitting in the doctor/dentist office waiting room, etc. I hear these things coming from young people fresh out of college, workers in their 30s, 40s, 50, seniors, Grandmas, Grampas, everyone. People are fed up with the status quo.

So, here comes along Trump. Whether you're for him or against Trump speaks his mind, is unscripted, definitely is not politically correct, and comes across as genuine (even if you don't believe in his views). Donald Trump is definitely not a politician (obviously) and does come across to a lot of American people as someone who will BLOW THINGS UP in Washington. Trump's style is refreshing to a lot of Americans. Just a small example of Trump's popularity. I live in Henderson, NV (few minutes to Las Vegas). This past Friday afternoon (maybe Thursday) Trump had a campaign rally at the South Point Arena (South Point Casino). The venue holds 4,600 permanent seats and probably another 1,000 if you place temporary seats in the arena floor. Anyways, the place was packed. The South Point had to turn away thousands of people because the place was packed to capacity to hear him speak. Now say what you will, "They're just Trump nuts or something similar." But, even Trumps hardest detractors have to admit the numbers of people he's pulling is amazing. No other candidate, Republican or Democrat, is even close.

In closing, I ask the American people living/working in Japan to consider the downright anger at both establishments. I mean even a Socialist borderline Communist, Bernie Sanders, is giving Hillary a scare in the Democratic nomination race. People are tired of the same old same old.

4 ( +7 / -3 )

When people need to resort to calling others stupid, it's usually because they don't have a valid argument. But then again, I guess there are lots of stupid people, who fell for Obama's campaign lies TWICE, and for W. Bush's campaign lies TWICE, and so on and on...

People are fed up with politicians. I don't particularly like Trump, but he is by far the best of the candidates. I hope he wins.

-6 ( +5 / -11 )

Last time I checked, Sanders still believes in private property ownership.

That's great, but the man still believes in heavy income redistribution. No thanks! Sad thing is or good thing depending on your point of view, the man will never get into the White House, so we don't need to even entertain that thought.

Yes, it covers "corporate" media. All for profit and division, not for the truth

So what is your Interputation of the truth? Something that makes you feel good or that you agree with or fits your worldview? Sorry, but that's not how the media operates.

Well, it's difficult for him to lose voters, because the morons who support him lack the intelligence to see just how bad the things he says are.

A lot of people felt exactly the same way about the current president in 2008 and 2012 now the shoe is on the other foot.

On that note, it's also difficult for him to gain voters, because all the people stupid enough to support him already do.

You guys need to stop going by your predictions, you're not good at it. You guys said the GOP wouldn't retake congress and you guys said that Trump is a fad and will blow over. You guys thought he could circumvent the constitution and the Supreme Court stopped him twice. At this point, you guys should just tread lightly with the comments because you don't know what or how this all will end. It'll be either Trump or Hillary, but as for Sanders and Cruz, definitely a long shot.

The sad thing is that such a significant number of people support him.

Significant??

The good thing is that not enough Americans are so stupid as to vote for him to become president.

Well, that's true, they voted for Obama twice, go figure.....

Even from 'the box' I am well aware of how frustrated Americans are, but they are uniformed idiots if they think Trump will fix A SINGLE THING wrong with the current situation. Trump is a rich man, who will do things to help his rich buddies, just like all the establishment politicians do.

His 'speaking his mind' is also uniformed, ignorant or straight out lies. They like him speaking his mind, but his mind is full of garbage. He will ruin our international relations, and probably make it a lot easier for ISIS to grow. People who support him are authoritarians, who don't bother thinking things through for themselves.

Speaking of Trumps lies, have you heard him talk about Japan? He still thinks it's the bubble era when Japan was more powerful, and fails to recognise how many Japanese cars are now built in the U.S. by U.S. workers.

"That's great, but the man still believes in heavy income redistribution. No thanks!"

Enormous wealth distribution has been going on for three and a half decades and continues with people like yourself cheering it on. Your disagreement with Sanders is just a simple case of the direction of this redistribution.

All new wealth will continue to be pumped upstairs under Clinton or Trump. If you have the kind of wealth you claim to have, you've got nothing to worry about.

I'm not a USAer, but hopefully there are more people upset by Trump than enamoured and Sanders takes the Presidency. Bloomberg in the race doesn't mean he'll win either. Bloomberg in the field would just split the vote and help a Trump victory. Clinton also represents money politics that doesn't help the country. Only Sanders has an unprecedented number of individual donations. But the Billionaires own the MSM, so he's dismissed along with voters who want off this merry-go-round immediately.

Billionaires in charge is not how America will stop pandering to billionaires.

Enormous wealth distribution has been going on for three and a half decades and continues with people like yourself cheering it on.

I've never cheered it on and I know where you're going with this. I'm talking about the huge entitlement apperatus that's breaking the countries financial back. This president keeps spending like no other president, we're printing more money and the debt is climbing and in the meantime, the people are getting less, wages are down. We don't need anymore of that.

Your disagreement with Sanders is just a simple case of the direction of this redistribution.

For entitlements on a massive scale (which he could never, ever deliver) you bet I do! The last thing we need is an old Bolshevik relic in the White House.

All new wealth will continue to be pumped upstairs under Clinton or Trump. If you have the kind of wealth you claim to have, you've got nothing to worry about.

I'm not worried about myself, but I do worry for the average American person.

No wonder TRUMP has supporter with news like those from FOX NEWS which are feeding lies about NO GO ZONE in Paris just to scare the people

I've been there myself in Paris, Germany and the Netherlands, I know for a fact there are lots of them or are you saying now that Europe equally doesn't have a problem with radical Muslims or many of the Muslim refugee men raping women. So I guess all the news outlets are lying, right? Ever wonder for example why in Sweden, they are never allowed to talk about a perpetrators nationality? Gee, I wonder why that is?

His 'speaking his mind' is also uniformed, ignorant or straight out lies. They like him speaking his mind, but his mind is full of garbage.

On the other hand, Trump does seem conceited and arrogant enough to avoid failing in front of the world at all cost.

I think we can all agree he is a crony capitalist/national/populist at heart that will no doubt make deals with the establishment to get things done but he has also promised that as president, he would not talk as much, be less combative and have a much different tone than as candidate.

The Trump movement is drawing millions of "lost voters" to care again for a few basic reasons : He's self-funded (doesn't beg from anyone), speaks his mind with clarity, genuinely wants to help, and has a track record of massive business success. Read the "Art of the Deal" for insight into the dynamics of the mind of a true leader In a nutshell, if embarking on a certain course of action would cost you too much today, wait and check back from time to time. Eventually a better opportunity will present itself. There are plenty of specific policy solutions in his other books that will be laid out in detail in the coming months and years.

He's probably as racist as Democrats are for less taxation.

The KKK was founded by the Dixie Democrats. By the way, what's going with the Oscars and not having enough equality and diversity. The liberal Hollywood society isn't as tolerant as one might think. I guess that means, libs can not only be selectively racists, but they can be the biggest hypocrites as well.

The haters have found their man, a billionaire to help make them poorer and more angry over time.

Hey, if Sanders were to become president, we would be poorer than North Korea. With the debt we have and the way Sanders wants to tax us all into oblivion, the dollar would become worthless.

You have Hillary who doesn't have a shred of decency, integrity, accountability or honesty in her soul. She will position herself to be for any liberal cause and going against her own principles depending on what the voters want or what the political climate is for that day.

Sanders in stark contrast is honest and direct and at least he will tell you the truth that he wants to redistribute everyone's income and promises to give free stuff. The man wants $15 an hour increase job wages? The man is a certifiable loon. Walmart did that and guess what happened, they are now closing a few hundred stores, prime example how his socialist ideas will NOT work in the US and all of the lazy kids that believe that are setting themselves up for a huge disappointment.

Someone else said it. Trump repeated it. And the media chose to blame Trump for it. Again.

@arrestpaul

That still begs the simple question, was Trump outraged by the statement, or proud of it?

You are clearly missing the boat here. He is obviously being criticized not for originating the statement, but for agreeing with it and regarding it as a good thing that he is so popular that he could shoot somebody and not lose any voters — which clearly shows how much he looks down on his supporters.

I'll suggest that Trump was amazed that SOMEONE ELSE SAID Trump could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody - and wouldn't lose any voters. Trump was commenting on someone else's claim. Trump commented, "OK? It's like incredible."

To repeat what Trump ACTUALLY said, "THEY say I have the most loyal people. Did you ever see that?" Trump said to his supporters in Sioux Center, Iowa. He continued: "Where I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody. And I wouldn't lose any voters, OK? It's like incredible."

This is a common forum, not a legal forum. We're speaking in the vernacular, here, not in legalese. So, yes, an opinion.

But Lizz's link raises some important new information (or maybe I just haven't been paying attention, lately).

Apparently concerted efforts were made by more than three of Hillary's top aides to copy top-secret info from secure servers into emails that they could send to Hillary over non-secure channels. It's difficult to believe that they made the decision to do that without a directive from her.

http://nypost.com/2016/01/24/hillarys-team-copied-intel-off-top-secret-server-to-email/

... In one e-mail, Clinton pressured Sullivan to declassify cabled remarks by a foreign leader.

"Just email it," Clinton snapped, to which Sullivan replied: "Trust me, I share your exasperation. But until ops converts it to the unclassified e-mail system there is no physical way for me to e-mail it."

In another recently released e-mail, Clinton instructed Sullivan to convert a classified document into an unclassified e-mail attachment by scanning it into an unsecured computer and sending it to her without any classified markings. "Turn into nonpaper w no identifying heading and send nonsecure," she ordered.

However, never underestimate the power of the media to forgive their favored party. Lerner got away with it.

He says 'I'll be great' I'll be the best at that' Yes, it's clear. It is also meaningless rubbish.

Genuinely wants to help? Who? How? The only people I see him helping is his rich friends by giving them tax cuts.

Haha. He has had FOUR bankruptcies, and he started his first company with a million dollars and his daddy's name that came with contacts and reputation. He then got an estimates 50 million when daddy passed. With that kind of money in the bank, anyone can afford to 'wait' for better opportunities.

He is selling snake oil.

There has already been a batch of emails released by the State Dept in which Hillary orders her staff to take a classified set of talking points, strip it of it’s classified markings, and then send it over an unsecured channel. That is a felony showing criminal intent right there worth at least 10 years in prison.

So when the FBI comes out in a few weeks with a recommendation to refer charges to the Department of Justice Attorney General Loretta Lynch would then decide whether to indict. Whatever Lynch decides, there will be a maelstrom if FBI agents found substantial evidence of criminal wrongdoing which they almost certainly have, including Clinton Foundation donors that wielded influence over her while she was in office. That alone will be enough to derail her candidacy for felonious and criminal corruption in the highest echelons of the US government.

True and the same goes for the Dems, I have never, in fact, the country has never seen a Bolshevik trying to get into the White House and now the Dems are fearing a Sanders presidency, something that Obama doesn't want. The man doesn't like Hillary, but who else can he support? Biden isn't running. I'll give you this, the GOP is running a funny race with Trump in it, very entertaining. But the Dems, anybody watching at all? Hillary is boring as hell and Sanders ONLY talks about giving away free stuff and making young kids salivate for something they will never get. Less entertaining, but entertaining nonetheless.

Did you see the GOP response to the State of the Union? They openly attacked their leading candidate.

Sure, I understand. But that has nothing to do with how the voters feel. Has you already know, Trump is attacked on a daily basis, so my question to you is, is he losing in the polls? Are his numbers rapidly falling? I think you already know the answer to that.

The guy in 2nd place, Ted Cruz, is also loathed by other GOP party members. How did your party end up with so much hatred for each other?

It's called diversity, something the Democrats desperately need, claim they have, but believe in a monolithic one party, one thought movement.

"And Hillary is a straight up criminal...." That's just an opinion unless there is an actual indictment.

In the majority of the publics eyes, she is a criminal and the FBI didn't conclude their investigation, so on that end, the jury is out, but for the feds, case is still very open.

Not if the DC council raised wages in an effort to insulate Walmart from competition, which would have been the unintended effect since small businesses are the least able to absorb a dramatic increase in their labor costs. The government still obviously wants them to come in to low income areas under any conditions.

Actually, that kind of comment doesn't surprise me. This is why liberals don't get the big picture, it's bigger than Walmart. The point is, Sanders wants to pay people $15 wages, so you think in retail or in restaurants, they can sustain, keep a lot of employees, keep extremely low prices and just eat up the cost without passing it on to the customers?? They did this in Seattle with many restaurants and a big chunk of them closed now.

The Walton family is the richest in the country, worth an estimated 140 BILLION dollars, why should they have that kind of money and have their employees receiving welfare?

I'm not going to get into the semantics of how the Walton family runs their business, I could care less, but anyone that works there and isn't happy with the conditions of the company should go somewhere else in search of employment. Regardless, someone will fill the vacant position and someone always needs work.

That's the problem with conservatives, you think the Waltons and the Trumps of the world deserve to be filthy rich while dodging taxes and making money off of exploiting the powerless.

LOL, what on Earth are you talking about? Of course, the Walton's and Trump pay huge amount of taxes. Even with Sanders whacky idea of wanting to tax the rich or the 1% how much should he tax? 70-90%? I hope you know that 1% of the wealthy rich is not even close enough to fulfill Sanders plan of income redistribution. That means, he would have to tax the middle class to make up the difference and at this point, that is not a wise thing to do, given the economy is still sluggish and people aren't feeling safe to go out in droves to spend money and it will continue to be like that until the people feel safe and secure to go out and spend and Bernie or more of Obama's policies won't change that.

Come on now. You say that people who disagree with work conditions should go somewhere else, but in the same breath you say that people who need work will work there.

Exactly. When I worked somewhere, I never complained, money is money and if it wasn't enough, I went somewhere else. Better having a job than having either NO job or spooning off the government. I never did that would never do that and I was not raised to do that.

You pretend to advocate for the freedom to choose your workplace, but it really comes out as ''quit complaining and work for that crappy company you hate.

If you really need money and you have no choice or do you think sitting at home on your parents couch or just thumbing your nose at the system will get you by? This is a reason why a lot of people hire illegals and Mexicans to do these low paid wage jobs, they never complain, they just work and want to make money to provide for their families and then they move up the economic ladder, can afford nicer homes, cars, better education for their kids, become entrepreneurial and open up their own business. They do it the honest way, nowadays, everyone wants something for free and that's just not going to happen.

The last year of Bush's admin. we started to see a huge rise in unemployment and then we had Obama had 7 years to do something and he just made things worse. Very bad, as a matter of fact.

Jimizo hit the nail on the head. Wealth distribution has been going on for the longest time, going right up to the richest and staying there. You just disagree with having a more even distribution.

No, if we have a president that will cut taxes and stimulate growth by giving tax breaks to companies to hire and properly train people that's a start, bring the corporate tax down, you will start to see some life again. Give people jobs in the private sector, people make money, people spend money, you are starting to put money back into the economy. 7 years and this guy did nothing, Obamacare doesn't work if you can't pay for it and since the life of it depends on the middle class keeping it alive, it's getting harder to do that.

Liberal: One who accepts evolution, does not accept the fact Obama is either a Muslim or an atheist and thinks sending soldiers to die in losing battles is a bad idea. They also think Santa Claus and Jesus are/were not white. They also want to make belief in the latter a capital offence.

Right, wasn't like that 25 years ago or earlier . Everyone just kept their noses to the grindstone. People didn't unionize and fight for wages and worker's rights against the wealthy. The strikes seemed to have accomplished a lot for them. When unions were busted up, the corporations were happy and workers started losing what they gained. I understand hard work, and I'm not advocating for anything different. But it's unacceptable to have people so wealthy when there are many people living in/falling into poverty. Where's the compassion?

What I don't want to accept is that we can't make a better country for everyone that gives everyone a fair chance. Holding onto the majority of the wealth by a few does not accomplish that.

If it weren't true, these cities wouldn't have a problem with many of the radicals that cause problems in these areas. It's like, "who are you going to believe, me or my lying eyes?"

I can assure you, you can still visit Paris even if you are not a muslim, watch the video link I posted and see for yourself.

I have been to Paris many times, that doesn't mean there isn't a problem with Islam and Muslims assimilating throughout Europe and that's the basic point of the argument. You can't deny it, it's an epidemic and Germany, I think is now kicking itself in the rear for opening up the flood gates to allow all these refugees in.

Who is 'you guys'? I made that post. I never claimed the GOP wouldn't retake congress (I actually predicted the actual result), and I have never said that Trump is a fad, nor that he will blow over. And on top of that, you are telling me to stop making predictions, but as you can see from the quote above, I didn't predict anything, so how could I stop making predictions?

I never mentioned you or called you out. When I do, you would know by now. So no worries.

If that were true she would have dropped out a long time ago. Is FOX news reporting on an impending arrest of Hillary? If not then it's just personal opinion of not liking her.

So how is the FBI investigation for Obama faking his passport? "In the majority of the puclics eyes" he was born in Kenya and illegally faked his passport which means a 10-year sentence in a Supermax prison. What say you?

If it were true I very much doubt my brother would be happy for his (very obviously non-Muslim) wife and daughter to take frequent shopping trips into the heart of Brum. He's probably not so happy about the money they spend, but he's not concerned about where his women go, he knows they're as safe in Brum as they are anywhere else in the country. And No, that does not mean the whole of the country is quaking in its boots under the so-called Muslim threat. There are no 'no go zones' in the UK.

Yeah it was written on the walls and reported as such well before the elections. I remember having a conversation about the low turnouts the Democrats usually have and the high number of Democratic seats up for grabs since the last election was a landslide. FiveThirtyEight.com was reporting that a Democratic candidate would need to have a 5-6% lead by election day to have a chance of winning. I remember talking about that, too. I've seen Bass make the same erroneous statement a dozen times but I just ignore it. It's bass.

You're breaking out on your own on this one, huh? I follow the bubble and I don't see many articles saying the Democrats are in as bad of shape as the GOP. But I suppose you have to have some kind of response.

Sure, if you don't want to get assaulted, will that happen or could it happen, there is always a high possibility. That was the main point and he was right.

This is outrageously inaccurate and downright stupid.

Because you don't like to hear the truth about that. Next you'll be saying, Germany is safe and doesn't have a problem with radical Islam or NO go zones either.

Seriously, I am not, but I have been in very dicey situations before reporting on these No Go Zones before it became an international Household name over 16 years ago.

And No, that does not mean the whole of the country is quaking in its boots under the so-called Muslim threat.

I never said that, but the fact remains it is there. I lived with it and seen it, grew up in Germany and spent 5 years in Sweden, so I know there is a huge problem with Muslims assimilating in a western society, that is something you can't deny.

"he wasn't going for a single payer healthcare, No one wants that" No, he will after he is elected. Watch. yes, lots of people have it already and continue to have it- poor, handicapped, and old people. It works for them. He is not saying that directly because he wants his base to elect him. When he is elected there will be more public healthcare. Maybe even more than what a Democrat would implement. It's a fact that the Conservatives invented ObamaCare anyway.

More proof that public healthcare will go up under Trump: He will raise taxes. He did say that. Some of those taxes will go to more public healthcare. Where else would it go?

Misunderstood. For eight long years so many Conservatives like yourself have been obsessed with wanting to see Obama being arrested for falsifying official Department of State records (which is a ten-year sentence generally). But with all this obsession of the illegal acts that Obama did - no arrest. Don't Conservatives who hate Obama and want him arrested for that alleged crime feel frustrated? It seems there is nothing there. Now I see the same pattern with Hillary. All this obsession for what Hillary did and so far nothing. It will continue to be nothing. Whether she becomes president or not there will be nothing. The only WH official to be found guilty these recent years was Scooter Libby who did reveal US secrets, tried and found guilty in court, disbarred and other punishments like not being able to vote for a while. He is a felon because it was the outcome of the courts and is a disgrace.

Some things Dems were obsessed with was Romney evading taxes and hiding money overseas which was false which was not true.

But OK, let Trump be president then. He will raise taxes and the amount of public healthcare will go up anyway. Especially since ObamaCare was invented by the Republicans. Go Trump, higher taxes and more public healthcare in the USA. Fine with me, I guess.
