A crazed man at the Donald Trump Rally tonight in Reno, Nevada just pulled out again and attempted to shoot and kill Donald J. Trump.
James Otis said he planned to turn himself in for damaging Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
But before doing that, he told media early Thursday, he would hold a news conference at the scene of the crime — where a replacement star had been installed.
L.A. police were having none of that. Hours before the planned event, officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood station arrested Otis on suspicion of smashing up the star.
Otis, a Beverly Hills resident, said he took a sledgehammer and pick to Trump’s star the day before, causing damage that police estimated at $2,500. The offense would be considered felony vandalism, police said.
In a phone interview with a Los Angeles Times reporter Wednesday, Otis spoke of his disdain for the Republican presidential candidate, business mogul and reality TV star.

Gloom and doom and presidential candidates
Christians for Trump – Now that the Republican primary has turned a corner with Ted Cruz dropping out, I have heard some “gloom and doom” words coming from Christians saying that now Hillary has won and our only choice is between the lesser of two evils, two immoral candidates.
I do not agree with the premise that we are choosing between two “immoral” people. In my estimation, there is clearly one candidate that clearly has no moral compass and that would be Hillary Clinton. The evidence is overwhelming and I really don’t have the stomach to go there right now.
As far as Donald Trump, someone is going to have to show me how he is so immoral and I have been studying everything he does and says for the last 10 months. Most Christians would point to his rudeness and his language and demeanor. If I applied that to many Christians I know, they would fail the test also. It’s not uncommon to hear the f-bomb or sh*t fly in a stressful situation even among Christians. Do I label them immoral? No. What are the evidences of Donald Trump’s immorality? I mean real evidence. Not just what the media has twisted around. Is it his kids? Do they reflect his immorality? You know what they say, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Is it all the anecdotal and testimonial evidence of all his helping and giving to others? Maybe he was immoral when he said on national tv that he was proud to be a Christian and the Bible was the greatest book ever written. Or was he being immoral when he stated on national tv that if he was president he would take measures to protect Christians from being ridiculed and discriminated against? I, personally, have not heard many, if any, make these bold statements on national media. Donald Trump is not a perfect man, but then again there are NO perfect men.
Is Trumps Persona really as bad as his enemies say it is?
Christians For Trump – The bible says that we are known by our fruit. It’s only outsiders, those who don’t know him that criticize him. There is no criticism coming from those who know him, regardless of their race or sex.
People aren’t use to a man who just “lets it all hang out” as they use to say. Every word out of his mouth is unfiltered. He’s like a bull in a china shop but you know exactly who he is because he’s not hiding anything.
Somehow we think that a person like Hillary Clinton (or Obama) is more civil because she guards her words and doesn’t speak like Donald Trump, but you should speak with some of her (and Bill’s) secret service detail, like I have, and you would know that she’s a pro at slinging out every kind of nastiness out of her mouth like breathing. That’s called deception and dishonesty. I would much rather have a Donald Trump, a bull in a china shop, than someone who hides their true persona.
Please someone show me the case for the immorality of Donald Trump, keeping in mind that when God chose Paul(Saul), Paul was persecuting and murdering Christians. When God chose Moses, he had just murdered a man. When God had chosen David, He knew that David was a womanizer and had sent his mistress’ husband to battle to be killed.
God has never had the perfect man to use except for Jesus. God has always chosen the unqualified for His own reasons and THEN qualified them for the purpose he chose them for.
As for us, I guess we would have been complaining to God about Paul, saying what a poor choice God had made. Some things don’t change.
After all, how could a man endure all the attacks that this man endured from ALL sides and each attack only make him stronger if Gods hand was not on him. This is called favor. God’s favor is on him. There is no other explanation.
It’s funny how Christians pray and pray and pray for their country and when God sends someone to do something about it, they don’t recognize it, as if God just forgot about all those prayers or maybe He just didn’t hear them. Maybe God just doesn’t want to get involved in this 2016 election even though His followers cry out for help. Maybe God couldn’t get His candidate in, and instead, the devil got TWO of his candidates on the ballot.
It wouldn’t be the first time that we didn’t recognize an answer from God when it came. Remember what we did to His messiah when He came? Just because God doesn’t answer us in the way we think He will or expect Him to doesn’t invalidate that this is the answer God is giving us for the requests that we have made. I have had many personal prayers answered that didn’t come in the form I expected them to, and some were painful, but still answered my prayers.
God has clearly shown that His hand is on this man, Donald Trump. There is no other explanation for what has happened. He spent hardly any money on his campaign, comparatively, yet literally in the 100s of millions were spent to oppose him on ALL sides. He only became stronger. Only God can do this. Even Donald Trump is incapable of doing this on his own. As of right now, Trump is poised to break the all-time record of most votes EVER in a republican primary which is currently held by George W Bush. He is estimated to surpass Bush by up to 2 million. And contrary to the gloom and doom of many, there are experts who know about these things (one who has predicted presidential elections correctly for 104 years straight), not polls, that say that Donald Trump will run over Hillary Clinton in this election to a landslide victory.
Christians for Trump
As believers, we must entertain the possibility that God has chosen a candidate. He may not look like what we expected. He may not even act like what we wanted. Otherwise we must believe God is just not interested, doesn’t care, or doesn’t hear. If, indeed he has chosen one, we must trust that He knows what He’s doing. It’s called faith, believing without seeing.
Touchy subject but I’m going to tackle it! I wonder how many people actually support legal marijuana in some form or the other?
Decades of research point to a variety of medical uses for this unique compound.
THC, or tetrahydrocannabinol, is the most recognized ingredient in cannabis. It is best known for causing the high that you get from using marijuana.
As a result, THC has also caused the most controversy surrounding the plant’s medical use, with many health professionals citing the high as a drawback.
Economically legalize marijuana
All eyes were on Colorado to gauge the impact of the country’s first-ever state law to tax and regulate the sale and private use of marijuana for non-medical purposes. January 1, 2015, marked the first anniversary since marijuana became available for purchase for adults 21 and older in Colorado. For over two years, the state has also allowed adults to possess and cultivate limited amounts of marijuana.
What’s happening with tax revenue, crime rates, marijuana arrests, the economy, youth prevention and traffic safety? What’s working and where is their room for improvement? What effect is marijuana legalization having on neighboring states and throughout the country? Will Colorado’s legalization law have a ripple effect on the rest of the nation?
Here’s what we know so far: According to the state’s department of revenue, the first ten months of legal marijuana sales have resulted in nearly $40 million in tax revenue. Denver saw a decrease in violent crime rates in the first 11 months of 2014. Statewide traffic fatalities continue to decline, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation. Upwards of $8 million has been allocated to fund youth education and drug prevention efforts. And the state is enjoying economic growth and the lowest unemployment rate in years.
Jon Gettman’s 2007 study “Lost Taxes and Other Costs of Marijuana Laws” found that the U.S. marijuana industry is a $113 billion annual business that costs taxpayers $31.1 billion in lost tax revenues. Gettman, who has a Ph.D. in public policy from George Mason University, suggests that $10.7 billion could be saved each year from the country’s $193 billion in annual criminal justice expenditures if marijuana arrests – 5.54 percent of all criminal apprehensions – were stopped.
Last spring, more than 300 economists, including three Nobel Laureates, signed a petition supporting a paper by Harvard economist Jeffrey Miron, who argued the government could save $7.7 billion a year by not having to enforce marijuana prohibition. The report also found that taxing pot at rates comparable to those levied on tobacco and alcohol could raise $6.2 billion annually.That’s a total of $13.9 billion in savings and income.
Economist Stephen Easton penned an article in Businessweek that suggested the financial benefits of pot legalization may be even bigger than what Miron predicted. Eatson guesses that legalizing the drug could bring in $45 to $100 billion a year.
Taxing Medical Marijuana Brings in Cash!
Although the above numbers are all speculative and admittedly somewhat disparate, there are some actual, hard figures reported by states and cities that have had medical marijuana laws in effect for some years. In 2011:
Oakland, Calif., collected $1.4 million in taxes from medical marijuana dispensaries – nearly 3 percent of all business tax revenue. The state of Colorado collected $5 million in sales taxes from the medical marijuana business. Denver collected $3.4 million from sales tax, application and license fees for its medical marijuana dispensaries (of which the city has more of than it has Starbucks coffee shops). Colorado Springs, Colo., collected more than $700,000 in taxes from the marijuana industry. Oregon raised an estimated $6.7 million in taxes which it used to pay for other state health programs.
Estimates for Washington: $2 billion in tax revenue will be raised over the next five years; for Colorado: $600 million in taxes and savings over the same time period.
Clinton’s stance, that she will not legalize marijuana. CEO of XEROX Ursula Burns participated in a Q&A with Clinton which later leaked. Ursula used Wall Street jargon to cover her use of the word “weed”. Clinton Campaign staffers have worked on removing these speech excerpts, and this was one of them:
URSULA BURNS: SO LONG MEANS THUMBS UP, SHORT MEANS THUMBS DOWN; OR LONG MEANS I SUPPORT, SHORT MEANS I DON’T. I’M GOING TO START WITH — I’M GOING TO GIVE YOU ABOUT TEN LONG-SHORTS.
HILLARY CLINTON: EVEN IF YOU COULD MAKE MONEY ON A SHORT, YOU CAN’T ANSWER SHORT.
URSULA BURNS: YOU CAN ANSWER SHORT, BUT YOU GOT TO BE CAREFUL ABOUT LETTING ANYBODY ELSE KNOW THAT. THEY WILL BET AGAINST YOU. SO LEGALIZATION OF POT?
HILLARY CLINTON: SHORT IN ALL SENSES OF THE WORD.”
Hillary Clinton is bankrolled by big pharmaceutical companies.
In the infographic below by OurAmazingWorld.org it shows the comparison of each candidate of the 2016 election. Hillary Clinton of course, being number one and Donald Trump being the very last.
One of the main reasons the United States hasn’t legalized marijuana is due to the big power pharmaceutical companies have in our government. Once marijuana is legal, these companies will need to react to new forms of competition.
Donald Trump is pro-marijuana and promises to let states decide on legalization.
For marijuana supporters, the thought of voting for a Republican is bizarre. Donald Trump is the only hope for legalization. He stated recently that he wants to see it legalized and dealt with state by state instead of federally.
Trump’s whole movement is about Making America Great Again and recreating the culture of positivity all Americans once shared.
So if the legalization of Marijuana could help bring in billions of revenue, and can also help millions of patients, why is Hillary Clinton so against it? Simple Hillary Clinton is tied into the FDA scam of America a legalized marijuana would be very bad for the big drug companies!
Just think of the money America could make from taxation of legal marijuana. The money America would save on menial marijuana arrests and imprisonment, the court costs, the jail stays, that would add up real quick. Think about the money it would save instead of the high-priced pharmaceuticals used now, and a share of those high-priced pharmaceuticals are paid for by the government, through free medical insurance. It’d be like a booster jump-start to our economy.
But for me, it’d have to be the medical use that would be oh so important. I’ve watched several videos where children actually stop having life changing seizures time and time again. Or how cancer patients get an appetite or stop throwing up after treatment.
Did you ever stop to think maybe God put this plant here for a reason? Doesn’t the bible tell us in Genesis 1:29 King James Bible.
And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you, it shall be for meat.
There was never any mention of marijuana in the Bible. But many assume it’s a sin. But then again the Bible has been interpreted so many ways, and no one man will ever know the true meaning of everything in the Bible. God said as much.
So are the Hillary Clinton’s of the World worried it’s immoral, or less money in their pockets?
Let’s see, Hillary clearly is for late-term abortion, or as I call it murder, and she clearly supports gay marriage, which the Bible tells us is an abomination of God.
I’m thinking it is the Big Money Pharmaceuticals in her pocket! How about you?
