    So to say Islam has nothing to do with this shooting is just plain ignorance.

    Islam was an excuse to do what he wanted. That was the part Islam and ISIS played.

    The fact is that this person was an American, and the people involved are Americans. He lived his whole life in America.

    No supposed policy of Trumph's to block Muslims from immigrating would have changed the result, and Trumph deserves no credit whatsoever.

    Smug Trumph. He is an idiot, plain and simple. The only reason he is the Republican nominee for president is because the Republicans party and Republicans are so out of touch.

    The shooter was an American who had a grudge against gay people. His father said the shooter was motivated because he saw two gay men kissing in Miami. He was being radicalized by a former U.S. Marine and ex-convict who encouraged crimes against gay people. So, all the actors are domestic, and the real reason for the shooting is an angry homophobe.

    Trump's supposed policies to block immigration of Muslims would have never stopped this shooting since everyone involved were Americans. He callously congratulates himself, for what? Hate and policies that would have done nothing to stop this shooting. I'm just surprised he didn't congratulate the shooter, because I am sure he is also a homophobe, like the rest of the Republican establishment. They don't believe in liberty, except when it applies to policies that support their wealth.

    “The exercises… do not contribute to an atmosphere of trust and security,” said spokesman Dmitry Peskov... “Unfortunately we are still witnessing a deficit in mutual trust.”

    Invading countries to annex desired locations creates a lot of trust and security. These exercises and countries like the Georgia and the Ukraine wanting to join NATO are a result of Russia's aggression in Europe.

    NATO hasn't used military force on other countries.

    I don't like the whole super delegate system, let alone the whole election system.

    The primary system is archaic and meant to provide an illusion of voting for a candidate and allow the party establishment to retain the power to determine its candidates. Still, Clinton has more pledged delegates (not counting super delegates) under the primary rules they are working under.

    Sanders claims the super delegates taint the system (agreed), but then he says he should be the candidate because he has the best chance of beating Trumph. So, he decries the system, but then he thinks the system should ignore the popular vote and appoint him as the candidate.

    He should just resign from the race, but he is probably holding on until he gets a promise for a cabinet position.

    The family of the woman in her 30s had asked police in neighboring Yamaguchi Prefecture early Wednesday to search for the three, they said.

    The police were looking for her, so that is probably the reason she was stopped. Pretty sad story.

    The tariffs are because the U.S. steel industry spent years creating the technology to make cold rolled steel, and now Chinese companies mysteriously have that technology and are selling the steel below cost. It is no secret that the technology was stolen by the Chinese military and provided to the Chinese steel industry.

    Chinese companies are also trying to hide the source of the steel by attempting to sell it through companies located in other countries, which coincidentally do not have a steel industry. Clever, but not clever enough.

    This hit the sailors where it hurts. Sailors are known to drink like a fish.

    I am hoping they quickly come to the desired understanding and refrain from acting like .... drunken sailors.

    LGBT and Trannies....He'd be ashamed about LGBT and Trannies using any restroom they want. Didn't Abe say something like, " a nation divided cannot stand". Look at all the division obama created

    The U.S. has a diverse population. LGBT and trannies are real and part of the country. But you would rather divide them from the country and deny them a voice in their own country. The bathroom choice along with that whole community integrating into the nation is something that will evolve in time as issues are addressed.

    A nation divided? The Republicans have divided the nation by trying to make everyone accept their perverted vision of a judeo-christian state and saying no at every step. It goes to show the Republicans are not the same party as Lincoln's party. They cannot accept diversity and would rather divide the nation if it will not accept their narrow and antiquated religious agenda.

    On the topic of the article, Trumph is a petty confidence man writ large. I can thankfully say that I have never bought anything with a Trumph name on it.

    Now, the Trumph name is attached to the Republicans, a true reflection of the regressive state of the Republican party.

    Republicans fought to rid the south of Slavery. The KKK was formed by democrats.

    This is hardly Abe Lincoln's Republican party. That was a long time ago and a lot has changed.

    Abe Lincon's party has digressed to elect the likes of Donald Trumph. Abe would be ashamed.

    Trumph also knows David Duke, a KKK leader, but now he conveniently can't remember saying he was a good guy.

    . . .like how Obama sold that "vote for change" lemon to everyone?? Did you buy that line too? I sure as hell didn't-

    All presidents call for change and then realize that it is not so easy. Reagan is famous for calling for a reduction in government and deficit spending, but he created trillions in debt and enlarged government. Bush said read my lips, no taxes, but he raised taxes. Bill Clinton argued a more liberal agenda as a candidate, but he came to the center and even did what big name Republicans promised and couldn't do, he balanced the budget. Later, we had Bush come along and screw up the budget with the desire to spend and provide tax breaks to his wealthy supporters.

    At least Obama created a national health plan. That was a huge change... and for the better. The Republicans have offered no meaningful alternatives, other than saying no for nearly eight years. Now more people are insured, people are not denied insurance, and health care costs are coming down. Women get prenatal care covered by insurance.

    Obama also escalated drone strikes killing numerous terrorists and made the decision to go after and kill Bin Laden. Bin Laden was lost on Bush's watch when he decided attacking Hussein was a good idea and pulled troops out of Afghanistan, which created a huge mess in the middle east that Obama has been left to deal with.

    Yea, Republicans have been a boone for the U.S. They have created unimaginable deficits, started ineffective and unnecessary wars, and have tried at every turn to recast the U.S. into some kind of right wing religious fundamentalist society. Now, they can only put forward a flim-flam man as a candidate.

    The Republicans biggest unspoken complaint against Obama is that he is black, and they don't like that he is not in their pocket.

    Hillary will resort to any tactics whatsoever to get into office; few politicians in the past century are more ambitious or power hungry than she it. That was an understatement!

    These statements are meaningless diatribe. Politicians are inherently ambitious type A personalities.

    Besides, your champion Trumph is the poster boy for ambition. He sells it to suckers every day.

    This is just a stunt by two stunt men because stunts are all they have left.

    Trump should have just declined instead of lying about actually debating Sanders.

    Besides, what will Trumph say at a debate that would be meaningful?

    Let's not forget that he was also an ex-marine.

    Your statement is made to show cause and effect where none exists.

    From my perspective, being an ex-Marine means that the Marine's were not involved. He was not in the Marine chain of command. He was simply a base worker like many other U.S. and Japanese civilians.

    Plus, there are many thousands of ex-Marines, and the vast majority of ex-Marines and active duty Marines never commit a crime, let alone murder.

    As an Ex-Marine, I despise people like this, and I despise comments like this.

    What does "former Marine" mean?

    If he wasn't in the military, why protest to the military commander? Was the murderer wasn't under the commander's chain of command? Not enough information in this article.

    How long until the Republican party is unified?

    Sounds like a big never. The party leadership is all about low taxes on the rich. They want to keep their low dividend and capital gains rates while their secretaries pay more tax as a proportion of their income. Mitt Romney doesn't like it. Paul Ryann doesn't like it. They are trying to pull Trump's chain to get their agendas put forward.

    A quote from CNN: the anxious party leadership has grown so out of touch with the electorate that it's missing the genuine anger fueling Trump's rise.

    Trump has a record of building things, created thousands of jobs.

    Trumph has a record of bilking investors. Those jobs came from the investors whose money was never returned. Trumph is only a manufactured name brand, and Donald is nothing short of a high-stakes con man. His family's real name is Drumph. #MakeDonaldDrumphAgain

    I'm all for this movie since Shane Black will be writing and directing, and he intends it to be a larger movie than the smaller budget predator movies. It also isn't a reboot per IMDB.

    Still, I enjoyed the last Predators movie with Adrien Brody.

    Alien vs. Predators was just garbage loosely aimed at fans of a semi-decent video game.

    Laguna: The woman deserves the worst.

    I tuned out the early the primaries when she was running, so I did not know that she had done that. Nuts.

    My sentiment was only that she is just a pawn, and there is nothing about the running candidate/VP pick than a PR stunt.

    Still, I do know that she killed HP and would probably do the same for the U.S. I in no way want her anywhere near the Whitehouse, or my kids.

    An inexperienced right wing conservative and a business executive who killed Hewlett Packard.

    Madness. What, women will now vote for him? I feel bad for Fiorina, she is just a pawn for a loser.

    Well, Cruz will go down in history as the third idiot to try this trick. He is losing so badly, he can only resort to tricks and gimmicks. So, maybe give him points (but no votes) for his efforts and tenacity.

    Reagan and Brown tried it as a means to prop up their losing campaigns and failed. Reagan at least learned his lesson and waited until he won the next primary before nominating his VP.

    My only hope, Cruz will quickly lose the next two primaries in rapid succession so that we stop hearing about him.
