There's a second panel?

I thought it was over!

"Look Me In The Eyes "

I respect this man!


So Bernie declared he's an independent huh? Watch full interview

But if you only want what people are up in arms about. Go to 7:35 and 14:38 it sounds like he's a democratic to me and can't change his party until he runs again.

People love to jump to conclusions without the facts at hand.

'Super bacteria' discovered in Rio's waters as Olympics near

Source: CNN

A group of Brazilian scientists have detected a drug-resistant bacteria growing off the shores of some of Rio de Janeiro's most stunning beaches, one month before they're due to host the 2016 Olympic Games.

According to lead researcher Renata Picao, the "super bacteria" entered the city's waterways when sewage coming from local hospitals got channeled into the bay.

"We have been looking for 'super bacteria' in coastal waters during a one year period in five beaches," Picao told CNN, during a visit to her lab. "We found that the threats occur in coastal waters in a variety of concentrations and that they are strongly associated with pollution."

Among the beaches flagged were Flamengo and Botafogo, which border the bay where Olympic sailors are scheduled to compete.

I don't think I would go if I was an athlete. Body parts are washing up onto the Olympic beaches!

FBI Director Comey will be giving a statement today at 11am et

And will supposedly take questions afterward.

Maybe the reports are right because it seems almost anticlimactic in a way.

Oil turns white boats to brown in Rio Olympic sailing venue

Source: AP

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) A new pollution problem has surfaced in Guanabara Bay, the venue for sailing in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics.

Sailors complained Monday about an oil slick that turned white boats brown with crews in town practicing for the Olympics, which open in a month.

"We've never seen anything like this. It was all over the place," said Finnish sailor Camilla Cedercreutz. "There was no way you could avoid it."

It's yet another in a long list of problems confronting South America's first games: the Zika virus, rising crime and violence, budget cuts, and slow ticket sales."

Booker stokes speculation about Clinton VP job

"New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker is now referring questions about whether he is being vetted as a potential running mate for Hillary Clinton to her campaign -- a shift from as recently as two weeks ago, when he flatly denied he was in the running for the job.

"I'm just referring questions about the vice presidency to the woman who is going to have to make this decision," Booker told CNN's Brianna Keilar in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union." "You should talk to the Clinton campaign."

Booker's tightly guarded answer is a marked difference from how he responded to that question last month, when he told MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell: "I'm not being vetted."

Booker is one of several Democrats believed to be under consideration by Clinton. Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro, Labor Secretary Tom Perez, Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio and Rep. Xavier Beccera of California have all been floated as potential choices.

One factor that potentially could work against Booker is that he's from a state with a Republican governor, meaning his seat in the Senate would almost certainly be replaced by a Republican were he to be elected vice president."


I'm really wondering who it will be.

In unprecedented move, British police summoned Tzipi Livni over suspected Gaza war crimes

Source: Haaretz

LONDON - Former Foreign Minister MK Tzipi Livni, currently in London to attend the Haaretz Israel Conference, has been granted special diplomatic immunity following a bid by the British police to question her in connection with war crimes.

The unprecedented police summons, which was delivered last Thursday, was cancelled after diplomatic contacts between Israel and Britain, at the end of which Livni received immunity.

According to the summons, police wanted to question Livni, a Zionist Union Knesset member, on suspicion of involvement in war crimes during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in 2008, when she was foreign minister, vice prime minister and a member of the diplomatic-security cabinet.

Haaretz understands that Livni received a telephone call last Thursday from a detective belonging to Scotland Yard's War Crimes unit, who asked her to confirm that she would be visiting London. At the conclusion of the telephone conversation, he sent her the summons via email.

Donald Trump's "Star of David" Hillary Clinton Meme Was Created by White Supremacists

"Donald Trump tweeted a meme Saturday that used dog-whistle anti-Semitism to announce that his political rival, "Crooked Hillary," had "made history." The meme Trump tweeted prominently featured the Star of David a holy symbol of the Jewish religion that Nazis attempted to pervert by forcing Jews over the age of 6 to sew it onto their clothing during Hitler's reign.

Emblazoned onto the Star of David in Trump's meme are the words "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"

The star lies atop a giant pile of money.

Mic discovered Sunday that Donald Trump's Twitter wasn't the first place the meme appeared. The image was previously featured on /pol/ an Internet message board for the alt-right, a digital movement of neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and white supremacists newly emboldened by the success of Donald Trump's rhetoric as early as June 22, over a week before Trump's team tweeted it.

Though the thread where the meme was featured no longer exists, you can find it by searching the URL in Archive.is, a "time capsule of the internet" that saves unalterable text and graphic of webpages. Doing so allows you to see the thread on /pol/ as it originally existed.

Of note is the file name of the photo, HillHistory.jpg, potentially a nod to the Neo-Nazi code for "HH," or "Heil Hitler," which the alt-right is fond of hiding in plain sight. "


Trump might be out before the convention if this keeps up. It's almost like self sabotage.
