Evangelicals seem happy with their control of the GOP
Or while 82 percent of the evangelical Republicans are "strongly" unfavorable of gay marriage, only 37 percent of moderate Republicans and 29 percent of independents feel that way. And while 64 percent of evangelicals and 58 percent of tea party Republicans are "strongly favorable" toward pro-life groups, only 24 percent of moderate Republicans and 17 percent of independents agree. Or while 71 percent of tea party supporting Republicans feel strongly favorable toward the NRA, only 34 percent of moderate GOPers and a like number of independents feel that way.

I can't see a damn reason to think when dealing with the socialists like you. You can't think and if you could, you would lie instead of just make up reality. Me? I would feed everyone of you riffraff to sharks and crocodiles and be rid of three problems: No hungry sharks. No hungry crocodiles. No more deadbeats with 90 IQs. BTW commie boy, are you one of the HI socialists famous for living off of the taxpayers?

the court, i.e. the judge, should not be diverted from impartiality by such actions......

probably true in the case of rape, but they would not wait 6 months to seek an abortion, and that is the issue in many of these bills......

Why no source? It's obvious your dumbazz didn't write that skewed piece.

what makes you (or rather the slug that you copied) think that this was an "epic goof" by Putin, rather than a carefully calculated message further testing Obama.....
who has already flunked the exam......
Putin is KGB and always has been, and Obama is no match.....

Bush would fund raise during a crisis. just like every President has done.
one really has to wonder why you hypocrites think Obama should be different. maybe you can explain without including any right wing nonsense? you know: tell the truth of it for once.

not very smart considering that the REST of the world is throwing a fit about it. every country that had a citizen on that plane is demanding answers.
Malaysia Airlines crash: Australian PM tells Russia to explain disaster
Tony Abott tells MPs:'This is not something that can just be dismissed as a tragic accident when you have Russian proxies using Russian-supplied equipment'
so was he testing also Abbott? every leader in the world maybe?
try some coherency why don't ya. would be a very refreshing change.

100% of all Republicans think that Obama and the DemoKKKrats are dangerous subversives....

With bigger and more catastrophic news stories, the kerfuffle about the IRSs Lois Lerner, her 2 years of lost emails, and her cleverly off-the-grid texts seem comparatively unimportant. Yet they are anything but a laughing matter. The integrity of the IRS and tax system are vital to our economy.
For over a year now, the DOJ and FBI have been investigating the IRS targeting scandal. Yet a DOJ lawyer testified before a Congressional committee that even a year into its investigation, DOJ had no advance notice of the 2 years worth of emails the IRS says went missing years ago.
On June 13, 2014, the IRS admitted that it lost Lois Lerners emails from January 2009 through April 2011. DOJ says it learned of the missing emails after June 13, 2014 from the media! Oh, those two-years worth of emails to and from the key IRS figure who refused to testify to Congress about her job as a top IRS official? They covered the precise period of time when the alleged IRS targeting of Tea Party groups took place.
Meanwhile, Ms. Lerners lawyer continues to say his client did nothing wrong. She refused to testify and was held in contempt of Congress. She professed her innocence herself to a Congressional committee, then promptly clammed up asserting her constitutional right against self-incrimination. Her case was turned over to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia.

The Obama administration leveled new sanctions on Russia amid newly increased tensions along the Ukrainian border, the first sanctions handed down by the U.S. on Russia since late April.
The sanctions are targeted at a series of large banks and energy and defense firms, marking a significant escalation in the U.S.'s standoff with Russia. Up to this point, the sanctions had only been aimed at several Russian individuals and their businesses involved in the destabilization of the situation in Ukraine.
Among the targeted firms on the new sanctions list include Rosneft, the world's largest oil company; Gazprombank, Russia's largest private bank; Novatek, Russia's largest independent natural-gas producer; and Vnesheconombank, a development lender.
Other entities were included on the list, including the entirety of the self-proclaimed "Donetsk People's Republic" and "Luhansk People's Republic" in Ukraine. Several Russian government individuals were also sanctioned, including senior Russian Federal Security Service official Sergey Beseda.
The sanctions restrict Russian access to U.S. debt markets. Senior administration officials portrayed the entities sanctioned as now being cut off "from the U.S. financial system and the U.S. economy."
"This is a significant step. These are some of the largest financial institutions in Russia," a senior Obama administration official told reporters on a conference call Wednesday.
The sanctions stop short of completely cutting off entire sectors of the Russian economy, which officials have threatened in the past.
How far to go with the new sanctions had presented a dilemma for the administration, which had imposed sanctions to this point in concert with the E.U., whose leaders were meeting to discuss implementing new sanctions on Wednesday. U.S. officials said the Obama administration's sanctions were coordinated among Obama and European leaders, but the E.U.'s own sanctions weren't expected to go as far as the U.S.
Analysts have said this week a unilateral move by the U.S. would have been unwise. It would be a significant shift from the Obama administration's calculus thus far a move that would signal a "weaker hand" going forward. It also would double down on a policy U.S. officials have admitted hasn't deterred Putin's actions in Ukraine.
"The Obama administration has consistently said that the U.S. was working to 'isolate' the Russians if they didnt back down on Ukraine," Eurasia Group president Ian Bremmer told Business Insider in an email. "It's unclear to me how unilateral sanctions supports that strategy.
"Russia's already ignored joint U.S.-E.U. sanctions, pressing ahead with escalation in Ukraine. America losing the Europeans only shows a weaker hand. If the U.S. is going to back off of whats been a failed policy, better to do it earlier (and with their allies) than down the road."
The Pentagon said Wednesday that Russia was again building up its troops along the border, and the U.S. has in recent days accused Russia of continuing to send tanks and other weapons to help struggling pro-Russian separatists. The State Department has also claimed Russian officials are permitting fighters from the self-proclaimed "Donetsk Peoples Republic" to establish a recruiting office in Moscow. Ukraine on Tuesday also accused Russia of having a role in two air strikes over the past two days.
A senior administration official said it was clear Russia's "support for the separatists has increased."

The libertarian moment discussions will also invariably feature polls that show a majority of Americans favor legalizing weed and gay marriage,
both issues that libertarians have been talking about for years.
(Name something, and libertarians will be in favor of legalizing it.)

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL) said in a Thursday interview with The Daily Beast that if Americans were killed in the attackand there are unconfirmed reports that there have beentheir families should immediately pursue civil lawsuits against Russian interests in the U.S. and Europe. Its a tactic employed in the wake of previous commercial airline attacks.
If weve had American deaths here, there should be a pretty swift response against Russian assets which are located in North America The Justice Department should assist the litigants, he said.The families of those Americans should immediately come forward with lawsuits that lock up a lot of Russian assets here in the U.S. and get recompense so the Russian oligarchs always know that it will hit them in their foreign pocketbooks if they needlessly kill civilians.
The Ukrainian foreign ministry released a statement promising to present evidence of Russian involvement.
According to the General Staff of Ukrainian Armed Forces, the airplane was shot down by the Russian Buk missile system as the liner was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters [33,000 feet], the statement said.Ukraine has no long-range air defense missile systems in this area. The plane was shot down, because the Russian air defense systems was affording protection to Russian mercenaries and terrorists in this area.

FLASHBACK: Palin And Other Conservatives Praised Putin Just 4 Months Ago
They're being reminded in the wake of the Malaysia Airlines crash
"Conservatives should really wait for a while before the start supporting people. Because it's been biting them in the ass for a while now.
Phil Robertson when he was anti-gay was okay, but when he said he didn't have an issue with Jim Crow... oops.
Cliven Bundy when he was fighting the fed was okay, but when he started having "things to tell [us] about the negro"....oops.
Vladimir Putin when he was fighting bears and putting gays in jail that was okay, but when weapons he supplied rebels with shot down a plane of civilians.... oops.
For future reference, maybe wait a month before you start lauding these people as "Strong leaders" or "Great men"."
