U.S.-backed Syrian 'rebels' behead young boy --U.S.: Beheading could affect U.S. support of 'rebels' [Yeah, USociopaths will give them even MORE money] | 21 July 2016 | Gruesome video footage has emerged of Syrian rebels terrorists beheading a young boy, in what leaders of the group involved called an "individual mistake." The video that emerged on social media showed a visibly frightened boy lying in the back of a truck alongside what appeared to be several rebel fighters. The rebels claimed the boy was a prisoner from Liwa al-Quds -- a pro-regime government militia force made up mostly of Palestinians in Syria -- and that he was captured from an unofficial refugee camp north of war-torn Aleppo.

Ted Cruz refuses to endorse Trump during RNC speech; leaves stage to boos

July 21, 2016 by legitgov

Ted Cruz refuses to endorse Trump during RNC speech; leaves stage to boos | 20 July 2016 | "I congratulate Donald Trump on winning the nomination last night." That was Texas Sen. [Grade 'A' sociopath and corporatist scum-bag] Ted Cruz's only mention of the GOP's presidential nominee during his speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland. Throughout his speech, which ended with him leaving the stage to boos and chants of "Trump," Cruz sidestepped any other reference to Trump and barely touched on the candidate's policies - and came far from endorsing his candidacy. Instead, the Texas lawmaker spent his time on stage giving what appeared to be a speech announcing his own candidacy for 2020.

Cop shoots caretaker of autistic man playing in the street with toy truck | 20 July 2016 | (North Miami, FL) When a 23-year-old autistic man carrying a toy truck wandered from a mental health center out into the street Monday, a worker there named Charles Kinsey went to retrieve him. A few minutes later the autistic man was still sitting cross-legged blocking the roadway while playing with the small, rectangular white toy. And Kinsey was prone on the ground next to him -- a bullet from an assault rifle fired by a police officer having struck his leg. "He throws his hands up in the air and says, 'Don't shoot me.' They say lie on the ground, so he does," Kinsey's attorney Hilton Napoleon said Wednesday.

July 21, 2016 by legitgov

U.S. appeals court finds Texas voter ID law discriminatory | 20 July 2016 | A Texas law requiring voters to show a government-issued form of photo identification before casting a ballot is discriminatory and violates the U.S. Voting Rights Act, a U.S. appeals court ruled on Wednesday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in a close decision among a special 15-judge panel, also sent the case back to a district court to examine claims by the plaintiffs that the law had a discriminatory purpose. The New Orleans-based Fifth Circuit, which has a reputation as one of the most conservative federal appeals courts, asked the district court for a short-term fix to be used in Texas in the November general election.

It allows the cabinet under the chairmanship of the president to issue decrees that have the force of law on matters relating to the state of emergency.

Melania's Plagiarism Actually Just Shows How Vapid Political Speeches Are

July 20, 2016 by walden9

Melania's Plagiarism Actually Just Shows How Vapid Political Speeches Are | 19 July 2016 | But what Melania Trump's plagiarism demonstrates more than anything else is that political speeches are largely vapid and interchangeable. They're so impersonal and without meaning that Melania could give Michelle's speeches, and Michelle could give Melania's, and hardly anyone would know the difference. The distance between the parties is not so great: they are united by their common clichés.

Donald Trump Officially Clinches Republican Presidential Nomination | 19 July 2016 | Donald Trump, the billionaire businessman whose outsider campaign has both galvanized millions of voters and divided the Republican Party, is the 2016 GOP presidential nominee. The New Yorker's embrace by the Republican National Convention marks a remarkable moment in U.S. political history and validates a campaign that shattered precedent, defied pundits and usurped the GOP establishment. His son Donald Trump, Jr., cast the votes for the New York delegation that put the billionaire businessman over the top of the 1,237 delegates he needed to clinch the nomination, as any talk of disruptive protest votes or walkouts dissipated. "It is my honor to be able to throw Donald Trump over the top in the delegate count tonight with 89 delegates," Donald Jr. said, surrounded by three of Trump's other children -- Ivanka, Eric and Tiffany.

#SpeechGate: Who Set Up Melania Trump? | 19 July 2016 | According to the operative – who ran a pro-Trump political organization prior to the "First in the South" presidential primary - many of the "new hands" ushered aboard the Trump Train in recent weeks are not loyal to their new employer. Their allegiances remain with U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas – the second-place GOP finisher who bitterly denounced Trump when he dropped out of the presidential race back in May. "I told you 'Never Trump' would infiltrate his campaign's most inner sanctum," the aide told us late Monday. "And they clearly succeeded. Knowingly plagiarizing Michelle Obama's speech? Wow." According to the aide, [Jason] Miller is one of several establishment "Republican" operatives loyal to Cruz who are working hard to sabotage Trump's campaign from within...In fact, the aide suggested the national humiliation of Melania Trump was payback for controversial comments Donald Trump made about Cruz's wife, Heidi Cruz.

The rebellion apparently caught Trump's campaign team by surprise, and his lieutenants were seen frantically whipping votes on the floor to squelch the effort amid scenes of deepening disarray.
