What don't you understand about the judge being a Republican appointed by George Bush? He has turned this into a Kangaroo court and the Federal Government is not going to be his pawn. As Glass said, they will produce more discovery when the parties are more specific in their requests. I suggest you "bow out" as you have no idea what is going on.
You finally convinced me-YOU ARE ONE PARANOID person who assumes everyone is acting in bad faith.

Maybe that is a sad reflection of how you deal with others?

no, this is about one's religious cult beliefs not abrogating others rights or superseding US law.
YOU'RE, or even my, belief a religion is a cult has nothing to do with it. You brought up cult.

The GOP War on Women takes a new front. Bully Chris Christie has called his former employee, "stupid", "a liar", and now, an emotional slut. Well, even if you're a loyalist, you can only be scapegoated so far. Kelly just responded to Christie's slut shaming smear tactics.
Her attorney just released a statement:
“The report's venomous, gratuitous, and inappropriate sexist remarks concerning Ms. Kelly have no place in what is alleged to be a professional and independent report.”
Rush Limbaugh tells the sheeple to call women "sluts" and they all fall in line. Just last month, Mike Huckabee said women can't control their libidos. So watching Christie's crew wield a misogyny club comes as no surprise.
But wait! There's more!
"The only credible investigation into the lane closings is being conducted by the U.S. Attorney's Office."
"If Ms. Kelly were provided with the appropriate procedural safeguards, she will be fully cooperative and provide truthful and complete answers to any questions asked of her by the appropriate law enforcement authorities."
She's ready to sing and to put Christie's bullying ass behind bars.
Kelley's attorney Michael Critchley also points out how Christie's so-called internal investigation was nothing more than a pathetic attempt to trash key witnesses of his felonious acts.
“A preemptive strike to isolate Ms. Kelly and impugn her credibility is not surprising."
“There appear to be two distinct versions of the George Washington Bridge lane closings. On the one hand, Mr. Wildstein, through his counsel, has taken one clear position. On the other hand, Mr. Mastro has staked a different view. Thus, Ms. Kelly's evidence could be critical to verifying either of the two competing versions of events."

A Reporter Tried to Ask the EPA Chief a Question; You’ll Never Guess What Happened Next

March 28, 2014 By Jennifer Burke

Obama-and-Gina-McCarthy
Ari Natter, renewables and energy efficiency reporter for Bloomberg BNA, tweeted today that he was detained by Capitol Hill police. His crime? He was simply doing his job. Natter attended the American Council On Renewable Energy conference to cover the event. EPA chief Gina McCarthy was a speaker. After she made her remarks, Natter attempted to ask her a question. After all, that is what reporters do. The content of the question was not disclosed in Natter’s tweets, but he did tweet about his experience of being detained. These tweets were picked up and reported initially by the Daily Caller.

Natter was detained while covering the American Council On Renewable Energy conference, where McCarthy spoke. Also speaking at the conference was Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, a staunch supporter of green energy who regularly takes the Senate floor to sound the alarm on global warming.

McCarthy spoke about renewable energy issues, including the EPA’s proposal to cut back the amount of ethanol refiners are required to blend into gasoline annually to avoid economic calamity. She also talked about the Obama administration’s view that energy and environmental policy go hand in hand.

While the question asked by Natter that led to his detainment is not known, here is what he tweeted just prior to his ‘arrest’.

Natter was subsequently released after police checked with their superiors and ran a background check to determine if his press credentials were valid. They were, so they let him go.

Given the Obama administration’s scandals involving attacks on freedom of the press with the spying on of James Rosen; seizing the phone records of AP reporters; and his attempted plan to monitor news rooms, this latest incident will undoubtedly make one wonder about the future of a free press under an Obama presidency.

We do? That's news. We're accused of being isolationists. You must be thinking of neocons like McCain.
If you want to stay out of places like the Ukraine, you shouldn't be giving assurances we'll be there to help when things go bad in the first place. It's a matter of honoring your word now.

so you think we should have let a failing economy and nascent gov't with little control like the Ukraine's just let their nukes get sold off by military people trying to get back years worth of back pay?

we signed that agreement for very good reasons...

don't worry. treaties like that get ignored all the time in the real world..you notice no one serious is really calling that up now, don't you?

As if a young black dude has a chance of getting a job other than minimum wage.
If.. he stayed in school and graduated his chances of being hired are 100% better than he/she drops out at 16? Anyway minimum wage is a starting wage which is usually increased after 90 days employment. Get a life, not everyone wants to be on the dole, as you do?

Of course you like Ben Carson; like you he's anti gay comparing them to pedophiles and those who practice bestiality. He's also made totally ignorant statements about the ACA being socialism despite the fact that it relies on private sector insurance providers, physicians and hospitals.
Condi Rice should be best known for her failure as National Security Advisor to heed the warnings of the intelligence community of an imminent attack on this country.
