The Mossad 'leaks' smell political. Think CIA, if you will not believe that.

Usually when an intelligence agency starts leaking information for political reasons, its to support whatever their boss has been saying. In this case, it was to counter what their boss has been saying. What can politically be achieved by Mossad if they call out their boss his nonsense.

Nonsense, of course.

You have to understand reality.

Well, we have gridlock in our Government, as well, all WITHOUT the freedom-robbing compulsory voting enforced by the police powers of the government.

Gridlock was the Founding Principal of the US Constitution.

Gridlock, according to the Federalist Papers, would protect the Freedoms of the Individual, from Government Tyranny.

Individuals have the Natural Right, and the Freedom of Choice, to participate, or not.

No one, excepting petty, wanna be dictators, believe otherwise.

And that could very well present a little... problem with his candidacy. Does Cruz qualify as a 'natural born' US Citizen (remember the Constitutional requirement to be so to qualify to be president)?


One of THREE requirements to be President is, in modern terminology, BORN an American Citizen. Meaning one parent MUST be a Citizen. Place of birth has no meaning.

I'd like to see Elizabeth Warren run for president, but she doesn't have the Armour that Hillary has.
If the USA is to have a president, that is also female, then Hillary it will be.
Imagine Women voting for a Womam, ...where will it end?

Agree about Warren.

Hate our SOB President. But proud of what we did.

Time for a women? of course.
26) Message boards : Politics : Bowe Bergdahl has been charged with desertion along with one other charge. (Message 1659081)

That is a sad litany and probably mostly true.
I don't believe he deserted there is no evidence that he never intended to return, that was the definition of desertion when I was subject to the UCMJ back in the early 60s, I think he went AWOL.

When I was in the service 72-80 the line between desertion and awol was in being awol you had left your clothes in your locker at the barracks. You had every intention of coming back. I have no clue what being on the front lines were.

Not much difference.

AWOL also depended on the reason (Sex? Drink? Both?), your Service Record, and WHERE!!!

Desertion: (Censored)

They have Ted Cruz. I am going to sit back and enjoy the show. He's our gift, from Canada to America, with love.

Idiot Cruz is just a side show. No one cares about him.

Republicans will have a new scandal every 2 weeks for the people to obsess over.

That infrequent?!

The Democrats are better.

They scandalize the Republicans EVERY week.

Saudi and allied air strikes in Yemen. Intense last-minute talks with Iran in Lausanne. And Netanyahu goes ballistic in his rhetoric.
If there is no deal with Iran in Lausanne, Iran can do more or less what it wants in terms of enrichment and nuclear technology.
The thesis that one can sort things out in the Middle East with some bombing has a - mildly speaking - somewhat debatable track record.

The Enemy of my Enemy, is my Friend.

Iran is The Enemy of Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Isreal, Egypt, etc.

Interesting, and possible (Temporary) Alliance.

Iran is not the enemy of Iraq, not anymore. Iran is also the enemy of IS which is a common threat faced by Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Israel.

Furthermore, Iran is still years away from getting a nuclear weapon, at least according to Mossad intelligence (I told you Netanyahu is a liar). Of course, trust the Israeli's to do something stupid if they don't get what they want.

ALL the country's surrounding Persia, Are their enemy.

If you read ALL articles regarding Intelligence Assessments (Involved decades ago), you will understand disagreements, between Intelligence Agency's, and within the SAME Agency's, regarding Assessments.

Almost all 'Information' is Partial, and Incomplete. There are many disagreements.

The Mossad 'leaks' smell political. Think CIA, if you will not believe that.

Judge Marengo did not respond to requests for comment.

Bergeron said "judges will not comment on their own decisions."

Same Judges, here in the US.

...Mrs. Clinton is a lawyer and officer of the court. If she truly was unaware of the nature of using personal equipment or accounts for government business, then you are telling me she is unfit to be a lawyer as I can't believe that she has so shirked her requirement for continuing education as to be ignorant.

The general public may not understand this.

The General Public does understand erasing 18 minutes of tape, and erasing hard drives, on Equipment used for Government purposes.

That is Hillary's problem.

BTW: I would rather have her as President, rather than the present occupant, and a couple of Right Wing Republican prospects.

The problem is showing one's face while giving testimony. VERY important in determining truthfulness.

Before you embarrass yourself further become educated.

Gary...

I have grown out of youthful embarrassment. When one takes themselves too serious.

Hopefully, one day, you will also reach that exalted level.

BTW: I do agree regarding the second item in your previous post. Not the first.

The problem is showing one's face while giving testimony. VERY important in determining truthfulness.

And what about Photo ID's.

A Hijab does not cover the face. Its just a headscarf. Would the judge also expect a nun to remove her headscarf?

For photo id's the women in question did remove her headscarf. However, that is not the same as being in an open court where anyone can see.

See my mistake.

Then we agree on both. Correct?

Perhaps I am incorrect regarding the foundation of your opinion.

I have no idea because you have not made any point suggesting what your understanding of my opinion is.

OK. Why do you believe that the ONLY persons interested, would not vote for her anyway.

I wish to understand.

Appears I am winning the discussion.

What discussion would that be, Clyde? Because all you've done is ask questions that are also totally off the topic of the thread.

If your imagined discussion is on topic, go ahead and actually contribute to it. We would actually like to hear your opinions.

Read my replys.

I believe that requires him to have one ......

Hmmmmmmmmm.

Another personal attack.

The only people who Don't Care, are going to vote for her anyway.

I suspect that most independent thinkers realise that the whole "scandal" is a political storm in the teacup and most likely not what it is painted out to be. Much like that Benghazi nonsense.

We disagree.

Explain.

The same reason for your opinion. Only opposite.

Perhaps I am incorrect regarding the foundation of your opinion. Could you explain your reason. Then we can continue.

Believe it or nor, we do agree with much.

Regarding your last line (in BOLD):

This will also apply, and your Post Deleted - If you insult me, or accuse me, when you misunderstand me? Correct?

Clyde. I don't make ad hominem attacks against you. You often misread or misunderstand my posts and rather than asking for clarification you fly off the handle and start calling me names.

In future, if you are offended by something I write, ask for clarification. Re-read it. Think about the different ways a post can be read or understood and ask yourself if you really do have the actual meaning behind it. Sometimes I might get the punctuation wrong or most often I assume that there is a certain common ground that I don't need to state and make a brief statement based on that understanding.

I have to say, pretty much every time you freaked out about something I've written is is because you haven't actually understood what I am trying to say.

And you haven'the understood me.

What is the difference?

Note: No reason to censor my reply, responding to your reply. Correct?

You've answered a question with a question. How about you put forward your opinion?

Isn't my Right to frame a question, or an opinion, in my way. As it is yours?
