Submission + - Democrat Operatives Caused Violence at Trump Rallies, Framed Sanders Supporters ( 16

Xenographic writes: A new video has come out detailing how Democratic operatives created violence at Trump rallies. You may remember that they then framed Sanders supporters for those protests. This video is notable because one of the operatives, Zulema Rodriguez, can be identified in videos of the Arizona protests at 17:35 in this independent video as well as at 10:30 in the first video link. Furthermore, you look at the FEC records of disbursements to her and see that she was paid by Finally, this again can be corroborated with the Wikileaks dump, specifically this email. For those too lazy to browse all the links, you can see Zulema's appearance in both videos in this image and note that it's the same person down to the tiny mole on her chest.

I disagree. Whenever I had this setup (split infrastructure and internet providers) and I would run into a problem, both providers would just point the finger at the other and do nothing. So I switched to a single company that was responsible for the entire service and they took care of the problem. I have found that having a single party that is responsible, is key to success in many aspects of life.

Ironically, the ones who scream the loudest against helping the "unwashed masses" are the Jesus people. Conservative Christians seem fundamentally not capable of allowing someone else a basic standard of life. And yes, that makes them bad people.

You can't be serious. There are two takes out there in the Church. One, we should take care of the poor ourselves and of our own free will (these are the conservatives). Two, we should support those who will take care of the poor and by any means necessary (these are the liberals). I don't know any Christians that don't want to help the poor, they just have different ways of going about it.

It certainly would have helped if he'd published it a couple of months ago.

Yes, that would have helped Bernie Sanders, who would be a different candidate. I am guessing, that is not who they wanted to see picked. Even now the Democrats are headed to a technically open/contested convention. If Bernie would drop out (before) the convention, then we might see this kind of release of evidence to, "save the party." Without that concession, you run the risk of all the super delegates switching to Bernie and handing him the nomination. In most things timing is very important, politics is one of those things.

I have been reading all the signals from Microsoft (free upgrade, last version, free for life) as them moving to: a subscription model, a hardware tie in model, or both. While I recognize I could be wrong, this has lead me to telling people to cling to their Windows 7 licenses. Get them before they are gone. Just in case!

The PR hit will be based on the outcome. In the U.S. the odds that the police: aren't expected, don't identify themselves, and bust down the door to encounter someone "well within their rights" who has a gun is quite possible. The police are in a tough spot when working from an anonymous tip. They need to demonstrate the best judgement possible.

It doesn't seem fishy to me at all. I am sure Microsoft is tired of the stories about how their old operating systems are more popular than their current one. Their last two releases (8.0 & 8.1) have flopped. Windows XP is still more popular than both of them combined! A fair amount of this stems from people running old operating systems on old hardware and they hope a free upgrade on the software side will create the appearance of a win.
