3 College Republicans at a college in Vancouver, WA attempted to hold a rally with a group called Patriot Prayer to speak. They were viciously attacked by off-campus thugs and a riot ensued. No mention of who the attackers were was made in this article by AP, but in the past these thugs have been far left socialist thugs financed and paid for by George Soros so I would not be surprised that it would be the same this time.

These costs will be paid for by a gas tax increase (of course) and federal pig trough money from nationwide taxpayers. I say fine on the GA gas tax increase and BS on me paying for highways in GA.

--Amazon wants to employ Millennials, and Millenials tend to want to live in big cities.But work-from-home is a serious trend, especially as companies realize that they can cut out real-estate expenses by having employees work from home. Many companies are changing the layout of their properties, turning spaces that used to be dedicated to a single employee (a cubicle/office, etc) into "shared" spaces that are essentially to be used by whichever employees are coming to work in the office on that day.For the employees, working from home may allow an additional tax deduction (for the home office), so it has the potential to be mutually-beneficial.Generally, though, I find it much more productive to be in the office than working from home, especially with small kids.

collusion with the election and bribery indictments out. And thats just

no leaks ever come from his office

Depends on the size of the pan. I like mine a little thicker but I have been using a large non-stick skillet lately and the eggs spread out a lot more and thus thinner. But I normally use two eggs anyway just because smaller. I have used three and saw no problem. And I like room for hash browns or grits too.

--

It's high past time that this kind of behavior be put to an end. We are truly at a point where college conservatives (and their offshoots such as this Patriot Prayer group and other speakers like Milo, Shapiro, Coulter...) are in mortal danger for just speaking. Are we in America anymore???

The National Guard had to protect black students from crazed leftists in the '60s. Now we apparently need them again to protect Republican students just for holding a meeting. Unreal.

Priestap has been on my radar for some time. He is the only person in the hierarchy who has been mysteriously overlooked throughout this process.

If he really has flipped it would explain why his name never comes up and why he seems to still have his job while all around him are falling like flies. It probably also means that for at least this part of the scandal HPSCI knows everything already and they are just dripping stuff out now.

Last night, Sara Carter also started another thread. She and Dan Bongino both reported that their sources are telling them that people involved in this scandal were also passing highly classified documents on unsecured devices, documents at least as highly classified as the ones they were charged with investigating Hillary for passing.

Let that one sink in. They were investigating Hillary for the same crime they were guilty of. They seem not to understand the concept of this whole law enforcement thing.

At the end of the day I can't let the American people off the hook on all of this stuff. The whole point of government by and of the people is that we are supposed to be watching and punishing people when they do bad stuff.

For too long we have been treating politicians like rock stars and allowing the bureaucracy to grow to a ridiculous size and become almost unaccountable.

"So anyway, in those days all he gave was about two hundred dollars in advance for a new book, but I needed a thousand dollars because my wingman buddy and I were going to build a house. We were going to live in a tent and build a house up in Newburgh, New York, out in the country. This was right after the War. So anyway, we got the thousand dollars and we bought the property and squeezed into the tent, and we built the house. It was real funny. I’ve got a picture, standing by this house, half-built. We were still laying cinder blocks and my friend, who was handling all my finances because, hell, I still can’t count, said, “Why don’t you get a truck?” And I said, “We haven’t got the money.” And he said, “You got two million dollars in the bank!” And I said, “What!”

Anyway, money’s the same way now as it was then. It’s something you use if you need it. I’ve never been money-hungry, fortunately. And I’ll tell you something else I’m very glad about. I’m glad that I was brought up during the Depression because, to this day, I don’t owe a nickel. I own the house I’m in. I’ve been here for 54 years, taxes paid. And I drive my Carolina Cadillac—a Ford Pick-Up truck.

She was speaking of Africa, where the Sahara desrt in the north is in an unstable equilibrium with grasslands to the south. So, if the desert expands, it does expand to the south.

Doesn't matter. The most depressing thing I'm learning is that these people are 100% correct in believing that they are above the law.

I mean hell, the FBI texts exposes multiple ethics violations and even crimes (admitting using non FBI hardware to communicate about FBI related work in order to avoid being recorded), and yet nothing will happen.
The Hillary campaign was given federal permission to literally spy on its opposing campaign with fake evidence supplied by itself. And nothing will happen.
James Comey hid critical information to congress in order to help Hillary during the campaign, and then leaked classified information (illegal) in an attempt to delegitimize President Trump. And yet nothing will happen.
These people don't need to follow the same laws they impose on us nor do they face any consequence for breaking them. Same goes for liberals in general. See an immigration law you don't like? Ignore it. See a president you don't like? Delegitimize him. See an executive order you don't like? Shop for a black-robbed activist to rule it illegal. Want to implement something that is clearly unconstitutional? Do it anyway.

We have a major political party that increasingly no longer recognizes the rule of law and will obey no authority but its own.

The pissing and moaning about tax breaks for Amazon (or any other company) is misdirected, it seems to me..

We all cheered when Trump and Congress cut corporate taxes just a few weeks ago, didn't we?

Here's the thing about tax incentives.. They are only tax breaks ON PAPER..

Let's say Amazon moves to Georgia and gets a $100 Million dollar tax break over the next ten years.. The state isn't losing $100 Million. It's $100 Million they wouldn't have had anyway!

But what the state IS gaining is thousands of jobs.. and those jobs bring in many millions in income tax revenue from those workers.. and those workers spend money in their communities with a multiplier effect added on.

It is almost always a good deal to give tax incentives.

While I certainly agree that some of the most obvious and worst offenders like Lindsay Graham and John McCain need to go I think a lot can be if not rehabilitated then made to start doing the right thing.

What's that old statement about creating the conditions to make the wrong people do the right thing? I think between Trump, the gutting of the corruption that Obama left behind and what I believe will be a big public outrage once this stuff breaks through the media blackout and the extent of what really happened is exposed we are going to see a demand that government become a lot more responsive to average Americans and less to the lunatic left fringe.

The media seems to be eager to help this happen by doing things like covering up the real scandal and giving loving treatment to North Korea at the Olympics while trying to slam Trump in comparison. It's pretty incredible.

from context, Hillary did not intend to violate the (that specific) law, a new ignorance of the law claim, if cannot cite the section & paragraph of a law how could you intend to violate it? She certainly did intent to send / receive / keep classified information as demonstrated by her continually doing so and asking people to send her stuff, so the Obama Administration coverup team was also misleading by citing a code that pertained to accidental mishandling.

230 Great tool, though, and I use it constantly for anything that doesn't have to be perfect to a fraction of an inch. The purchase gave me sort of the same feeling as when I realized how useful pneumatic nail guns are.

231 Let's say Amazon moves to Georgia and gets a $100 Million dollar tax break over the next ten years.. The state isn't losing $100 Million. It's $100 Million they wouldn't have had anyway!

But what the state IS gaining is thousands of jobs.. and those jobs bring in many millions in income tax revenue from those workers.. and those workers spend money in their communities with a multiplier effect added on.

It is almost always a good deal to give tax incentives.

Do they receive police and fire services? Do they use the roads? Are they paying for those things?

It's the same principle behind all those sports teams that demand new stadiums on taxpayer dime every decade or so.

Plus you just know that these prog-run outfits that got all these tax breaks will lobby for crap that will run up the tax bill even further for the poor saps paying for the services they use.

No, thank you.

233 Today in my church tradition it's Transfiguration Sunday-The story of Jesus on the Mountaintop with Peter and James and John. Jesus' clothes turn dazzling white and they hear a voice saying, "You are my beloved son" They also have a vision of Moses and Elijah as well.

The transfiguration is as much about them as it is about Jesus. Yes, they see God's glory in Jesus but he id not suddenly become something he was not. There eyes were opened and they could see Jesus as he always was. They heard a voice that has hasn't ceased speaking from before the beginning of our time . May we have moments where we see life transfigured-even if it's something as as supposedly simple as holding a new child or grandchild for the very first time-moments our lives are changed in which we are given a new way of seeing things.

And here is a poem about God working in nature and through the Holy Spirit - from the Jesuit priest and poet-Gerard Manley Hopkins-"God's grandeur"

236 Klavan nails it: "The resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter is a big scandal because Democrats and their news media are pumping it up to distract the public from the truly enormous scandal of the Obama administration's apparent illegal spying on the Trump campaign...If the charges are true, it is certainly a scandal, but a minor one. Unlike the Obama administration's widespread corruption, it does not make the people more or less free.

I found myself flicking back and forth between conservative Fox News and leftist CNN for an hour or so. Fox covered the budget negotiations. CNN covered Rob Porter. Fox covered the Obama spying scandal. CNN covered Rob Porter. Fox covered Rob Porter. CNN covered Rob Porter. Fox covered the war in Syria. CNN covered Rob Porter. And on and on. On CNN, it was Rob Porter all night long.".......

The rats know the ship is sinking and they're flailing.

Isnt it ironic that so shortly after it came out that Hillary kept in place a known abuser, her MSM is accusing Team Trump of the same.
Shameless bastards can never be original, always accusing the other of doing what they always have. Like screaming it as loud as possible will cover their own tracks. It most often does.

From what I have seen these $500K speaking fees have dried up a lot since she lost. They are not actually "speaking fees" they are bribes. But nobody will ever prosecute her.

The roads, police, etc are paid for out of the pockets of Amazon's employees. City and municipality taxes on paychecks pay for most of those things and state and federal taxes cover the rest. Not to mention the tax on gasoline and over the road truckers. Certainly there are states that don't have an income tax, but they offset that with mega sales taxes that collect from everyone, residents and non residents alike.

I would be more concerned with the upper and middle management of Amazon filtering into my school system administration, my local committees and boards, local government. Those are the ones that bring progressivism to a community.

Yep. We used to have a lot of corporate gypsies. West coasties were relatively easy to talk with and debate issues. East coasties were absolutely impossible because they could not even imagine funding being structured differently and their 'social' issues (which golf club to join, etc) was just painful and pretty much irrelevant in the Midwest.

Our government is failing us.

The strategic thing would be a SEAL Team and Delta Force raid on the main Soros compound or compounds. With a Ranger battalion as outer screen. Use NSA to get the meta-links and find the actual network. Roll the network up using RICO. Confiscate wealth, documents, hard drives, phones, thumb drives.

Interrogate them as enemies of Western Civilization.

Failing that, there is another possibility. Seems like we need our own brute squad. And not one with millennials included. Although FBI infiltration must be assumed.

If I see a threatened rally in the local area, maybe I can get some 29 year olds, all vets naturally, to attend. If threatened, "All ready on the right. All ready on the left." Even us Navy guys understand that.

246 3 College Republicans at a college in Vancouver, WA attempted to hold a rally with a group called Patriot Prayer to speak. They were viciously attacked by off-campus thugs and a riot ensued. No mention of who the attackers were was made in this article by AP, but in the past these thugs have been far left socialist thugs financed and paid for by George Soros so I would not be surprised that it would be the same this time.
