This is comical.
Hillary Clinton set up an e-mail server to avoid the press, Congressional oversight and the rule of law. Foreign actors MAY HAVE accessed her weakly-secured server. When called on this, she deleted 33,000 e-mails with no oversight from anyone. This was done years before Trump even thought about entering the Presidential race and somehow… someway… IF the Russians, who may or may not have hacked the DNC as well, have those e-mails, it’s Trump’s fault.
This morning Donald Trumpencouraged Russia to escalate cyberwar against his rival, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while also contending that Russia is “probably not” responsible for the recent Wikileaks cache of hacked Democratic National Committee emails.
At worst, Trump is siding with a semi-hostile foreign nation against his domestic political opponent. At best, he’s being used as a dupe and a pawn of Putin and Assange, and escalating the uproar that his campaign is a puppet of Putin. (If his unstable comments are a desperate cry to steal attention from Clinton’s star-studded convention, it’s a scary precedent for how Trump would handle international relations.)
In a fiery address to reporters Wednesday, Mosby said she still believes Gray’s death was a homicide. But now, she said, she realizes the criminal justice system needs “real, substantive reforms” to hold officers accountable.
“We could try this case 100 times, and cases just like it, and we would still end up with the same result.”
Mosby said the case showed “an inherent bias that is a direct result of when police police themselves.”
“There were individual police officers that were witnesses to the case, yet were part of the investigative team, interrogations that were conducted without asking the most poignant questions, lead detectives that were completely uncooperative and started a counter-investigation to disprove the state’s case,” she said, shouting into a microphone as she read her remarks.
Mosby, who comes from a long line of police officers, told reporters she isn’t anti-police.

“I’m anti-police brutality. And I need not remind you that the only loss — and the greatest loss — in all of this was that of Freddie Gray’s life,” she said.
When Mosby first took on Gray’s case, some praised how swiftly she acted. Others, however, said there wasn’t enough evidence to convict the officers.
This story is phenomenal.
The lottery would be expected to bring in $225 million annually. That new revenue would dedicate the money to the “basic services the state must provide.”
“I’m giving you the right to vote on a lottery,” says Bentley in his video message. “It is, I believe, after all other options have been exhausted, our best chance to solve this problem.”
The governor plans to share more details about the plan in the coming weeks. In the meantime, Bentley plans to travel the state to listen to opinions about the plan.
Bentley closes his statement asking voters to call their state senators and representatives and ask for the right to vote on the lottery.
Have an opinion about this issue? Contact your legislators.
A vote for a vote is a vote for a lottery, this statement from Rep. Satndbridge is a cop-out….
“There is no doubt our state budget is in peril. I do not personally support the lottery, nor do I believe that a lottery is the answer to all our state’s financial needs. However, I do believe in the citizens’ right to vote on important issues and would not deny the people the right to vote on a well-planned and vetted lottery bill. I will not support any legislation which is unclear on where the lottery funds will be spent or that does not contain safeguards from corruption.”
So it this, there was no “free money”…
This would of expanded spending, not reduced it.
This lottery mess is never happening.
In 2006, U.S. Senator Barack Obama’s voice thundered across the Senate floor as he boldly declared that “increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.” That was one of the truest things that he ever said, but just a couple of years later he won the 2008 election and he turned his back on those principles. As I write this article, the U.S. national debt is sitting at a grand total of $19,402,361,890,929.46. But when Barack Obama first entered the White House, our federal government was only 10.6 trillion dollars in debt. That means that we have added an average of 1.1 trillion dollars a year to the national debt under Obama, and we still have about six more months to go.
Even though Barack Obama is on track to be the first president in all of U.S. history to not have a single year when the U.S. economy grew by 3 percent or better, many have still been mystified by the fact that the economy has been relatively stable in recent years.
But the explanation is rather simple, actually. Anyone can live like a millionaire if the credit card companies will lend them enough money. You could even do it yourself. Just go out and apply for as many credit cards as possible and then spend money like there is no tomorrow. In no time at all, you will be living the high life.
Of course many of you would immediately object that a day of reckoning would come eventually, and you would be right. Just like for those that abuse credit cards, a financial day of reckoning is coming for America too.
In the United States today, our standard of living is being massively inflated by taking trillions of dollars of future consumption and moving it into the present. The politicians love to do this because it makes them look good and they can take credit for an “economic recovery”, but what we are doing to our children and our grandchildren is beyond criminal.
On average, we are stealing more than 100 million dollars from future generations of Americans every single hour of every single day. We are complete and utter pigs, and yet most Americans don’t see anything wrong with what we are doing.
At this point, our national debt is more than 30 times larger than it was just 40 years ago, and many (including myself) have argued that it is now mathematically impossible for the U.S. government to ever pay off all of this debt.
