  1. The New One Percent

    What a couple of sleeze balls Hillary Clinton and Debbie Wasserman Shultz turned out to be... money laundering big dollar donors thru the state level organizations to receive funding that would otherwise violate federal law. Clinton fundraising leaves little for state parties Hillary Clinton Caught Hoarding 99 Percent of Funds Raised for State Parties The Democratic front-runner says she's raising big checks to help state committees, but they've gotten to keep only 1 percent of the $60 million raised. By Kenneth P. Vogel and Isaac Arnsdorf 05/02/16 05:21 AM EDT According to the agreements signed by the participating committees, which were obtained by POLITICO, the money is required to be distributed, at least initially, based on a formula set forth in joint fundraising agreements signed by the participants. The first $2,700 goes to the Clinton campaign, the next $33,400 goes to the DNC, and any remaining funds are to be distributed among the state parties. But what happens to the cash after that initial distribution is left almost entirely to the discretion of the Clinton campaign. Its chief operating officer, Beth Jones, is the treasurer of the victory fund. And FEC filings show that within a day of most transfers from the victory fund to the state parties, identical sums were transferred from the state party accounts to the DNC, which Sanders’ supporters have accused of functioning as an adjunct of the Clinton campaign. For example, the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party received $43,500 from the victory fund on Nov. 2, only to transfer the same amount to the DNC that same day. The pattern repeated itself after the Minnesota party received transfers from the victory fund of $20,600 on Dec. 1 (the party sent the same amount to the DNC the next day) and $150,000 on Jan. 4 (it transferred the same amount to the DNC that day). That means that Minnesota’s net gain from its participation in the victory fund was precisely $0 through the end of March. Meanwhile, the DNC pocketed an extra $214,100 in cash routed through Minnesota — much of which the DNC wouldn’t have been able to accept directly, since it came from donors who had mostly had already maxed out to the national party committee. While state party officials were made aware that Clinton's campaign would control the movement of the funds between participating committees, one operative who has relationships with multiple state parties said that some of their officials have complained that they weren't notified of the transfers into and out of their accounts until after the fact. That's despite their stipulations in the banking documents that their affirmative consent was required before such transfers could be made from their accounts. But the operative said that the state party officials are reluctant to complain to the DNC about the arrangement out of fear of financial retribution. Most of the victory funds ads were executed by the same firm that does advertising for Clinton’s campaign, Bully Pulpit Interactive, which has been paid $8.6 million by the Hillary Victory Fund for online advertising, and $9.2 million by Hillary for America for online advertising and media buys. Those victory fund ads, as well as a direct mail campaign funded by the same committee, “appear to benefit only [the Clinton campaign] by generating low-dollar contributions that flow only to HFA, rather than to the DNC or any of the participating state party committees,” charged Sanders’ campaign lawyer in an open letter sent to the DNC in April. It alleged that the victory fund was essentially a pass-through to allow Clinton to benefit from contributions that far exceed the amount that her campaign could legally accept.

  2. Ted Cruz drops out. Let the pun wars begin.

    Hillary would equal or exceed any record that Trump could possibly establish. Does anyone doubt, if Hillary is elected, that republican discussions of impeachment would begin prior to her inauguration?
  3. CCW Owner Gets in the Middle of a Domestic Dispute.... and Dies

    The vast majority of gun owners are not trained to deal with situations like this one. Former military are not an exception to that rule, unless we want to believe our society has devolved into Iraq or Afghanistan. Protect yourself and your family by avoiding conflict not inviting it. This guy sounds like he was a great provider who will no longer be able to be there for his family. An unnecessary and tragic outcome. RIP
  4. CCW Owner Gets in the Middle of a Domestic Dispute.... and Dies

    Real life was not like the old 1950s romanticized western movies portray.
  5. Ted Cruz drops out. Let the pun wars begin.

    What a bunch of selfish pricks baby boomers turned out to be. For America's sake, please let this be the last of the baby boomer candidates. May whoever wins only be one term president, because our nation cannot withstand another two term GWB like fiasco. These two candidates are proof greatness skips a generation.
  6. Trump vs. Hillary

    Trump has a good chance of winning against Hillary if she gets the nomination. Clinton is still losing primaries in May to democratic socialist from a small northeastern state most Americans couldn't locate given a map... of Vermont and New Hampshire.
  7. Selective use of logic: Guns and Bathrooms.

    Government isn't a monolith despite what some here may choose to believe. Exhibit A: NC Legislature vs. Charlotte City Council I rest my case.
  8. Selective use of logic: Guns and Bathrooms.

    Question: So far this year, which of the following has been the greatest threat to Americans life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness? A. Transgenders using women's bathrooms? B. Toddlers with guns? C. The NC Legislature? D. Hillary Clinton's unquenchable lust for more power and money?
  9. GOP 'Family Values' Is Hypocritical Bullsh*t

    ‘Family’ Group Says It’s Now Sending Men Into Target’s Women’s Restrooms Oh, the irony of clueless religious nuts sending men into women's bathrooms to protest "men" going into women's bathrooms! Anyway, everybody already knows what the real threat is... religious leaders and republican pols going into men's bathrooms to hook up with little boys.
  10. GOP 'Family Values' Is Hypocritical Bullsh*t

    Public Arrest Rooms Fake news reports that NC police tased and "brutally ejected" a woman from a ladies' restroom because they thought she was transgender. Despite its reference to a topical controversy, this item was nothing more than another fabrication from World News Daily Report (WNDR), a clickbait web site that traffics in fake news stories. WNDR's disclaimer notes that all of the site's articles are "entirely fictional" and that any resemblance to the truth in them is "purely a miracle"
  11. Hillary Full Of Meaningless Platitudes

    Is it any wonder we've ended up with a couple of titanic turds tussling in the American toilet bowl of politics for the right to lead the "free world"? No matter how many times we flush, these two won't go away. Both have thrived off of pay-to-pay politics, spewing unmitigated bullshyt to a largely ill-informed electorate and most of all... their high name recognition (thanks to hosting a "reality" program or being married to Slick Willie). I doubt voters standards can sink much lower than these pols... both of whom have the highest unfavorability numbers of any presidential candidate to run for the office... EVAH! Once again, too many Americans are willing sell their nation down the river for a lousy hand job and a peck on the cheek. I'm truly concerned for the future of our nation.
  12. Hillary Full Of Meaningless Platitudes

    Hillary Clinton won big primary victories in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware and Connecticut on Tuesday, April 28th. Her victory speech was full of platitudes and generalities that mean absolutely nothing. Get used to it.
  13. How many GOP Speakers of the House have been caught sexually violating the public trust? Honestly, I've lost count. Former Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is going to jail for illegal bank transactions in attempting to hide his past as a serial child molester. He joins a long list of disgraced GOP leadership including Newt Gingrich, Bob Livingston and David Vitter who prove the lie that Republicans actually care
  14. Might be Jobless

    Money equals power. Even if you aren't a millionaire or billionaire, being free of debt is a YUGE factor! It enables individuals the ability to raise their standards when it comes to what is tolerable and not tolerable employer behavior/practices. Those employees living paycheck to paycheck tend to keep their heads down and their mouths shut. The ideal employee owes their soul to the company store...
  15. A Funchess Reminder

    Panthers have more talent at wide receiver than they've ever had before. It is going to be tough to part ways with a few of these guys.
