CNN suddenly loses connection with a reporter that started spilling the beans about her support of the Crime Control Act of 1994. We definitely can't afford to accidentally inform people as to why the US incarceration rates are so high!

it definitely makes sense that anyone at cnn would think that cutting off a reporter, during one interview, after the interviewer already mentions the thing she's apparently not supposed to mention, is going to keep anyone from becoming aware of one of bill clinton's most significant pieces of legislation.  a ton of sense.



hey can you think of anything that happened around 1970 that may have contributed to the increase in incarceration rates?  haha yeah me neither.

NINJA EDIT: clinton's crime act is a giant piece of dogshit legislation.  it's awful, and they should both be ashamed to have supported it.  but it probably wasn't so terrible that it caused an increase in incarceration rates 25 years before its passage.

If that isn't "conspiratard-level nonsense," I don't know what is.  Also, they must not have clued in their colleagues running CNN's online news.  Here they are spilling the beans:

You seemed to be under the inclination that I said the 1994 crime act is the only thing that increased incarceration rates, friendo.



In other news: Trump will announce his VP pick on Friday, July 15 @11AM Eastern time. I hope it's Sarah Palin! Love you, gurl!

It always helps to be able to pick a VP from one's next of kin.

Both Christie and Gingrich are Trump's cousins (Christie, 6th cousin of Donald Trump through the paternal line of his Scottish born great-grandfather, James H. Christie; Newt Gingrich's real name is Newton McPherson).

Even better, now we have two cousins having been nominated by their own respective parties:

Minute by minute account of what happened in the Rules Committee:

https://twitter.com/@TimAlberta


As evidenced by the images above, what the public will get is another set of staged debates, everything has been planned long ahead of time.

Someone tell me how Priebus still has a job. The entire primary and selection process was an absolute cluster with absolutely no leadership or strategic thought behind it. Romney ran a campaign destined to lose, Priebus was the party lead and yet Priebus still remains. This speaks volumes about the absolute lack of any leadership in the Republican party. Its frankly mind boggling that the Dems were nominating such a flawed candidate and yet the Republican leadership and establishment has no forethought into how to manage the nomination process. It's ironic that the very people like Priebus whose negligence lead to Trump's ascension may be plotting an even more disastrous coup for the convention. I do not blame Trump, he did what he needed to do.

http://stateofthenation2012.com/?p=43292 (Anyone trashing Bernie today needs to wake up and respect the masterful chess move he just made)

Priebus & co. were able to defeat the "free the delegates" movement, not the nevertrump faction.

There will be one last chance for this faction on Monday, when the amendments passed late Thursday will be voted upon by all the delegates.


In Paris, a truck loaded with explosives was stopped at the last moment by the DGSI before it had a chance to reach the Eiffel Tower.

And Trump has selected his running mate: Mike Pence.

If you are going to DebOOonK an expert then you have to at least provide a source with credentials of equal or greater relevance. Even then, it merely shows that some experts disagree with each other.

That didn't last long.  Kinda funny though that it got through.  Bet someone was fired for that blunder.

So, apparently Steven Colbert has done something silly at the convention, which started today.

I'm not shocked he did it, but shocked they took so long to take him off stage.
