Emily Kask for NPR Several protesters standing in the river held mirrors directed at law enforcement officers lined up on the other side and at police on the river in boats. Article continues after sponsorship "Everybody was just sharing love to these officers and explaining why it is we're here and questioning why they were," says Jasper. One law enforcement official had a very different view of the protest. "In my 27 years in law enforcement, I have never seen such an absolute disregard for the law or other people's rights because of someone else's ideology," said Cass County, N.D., Sheriff Paul Laney.

This base is quite important because it holds a certain energy balance for the planet. People who visit that part of the world can see and experience many interesting and wonderful phenomena in that area. (Thank you). RichardCobra in one of your previous interviews with the Prepare for Change group it was said – that a soul’s agenda is to return with the Source once again. What happens to the soul’s individual personality when this happens? COBRAThe personality gets absorbed back into the soul because you never were a personality. Personality is just a reaction of the soul on the primary anomaly. It’s a secondary function of a being. It is not the primary function of a being. Richard – I understand. Thank you. Once the soul evolution is complete and once it leads back to its source, what happens then. COBRAWhen the being is back to the source it becomes one with the source again.

Also, the slogan "GOP: Do Your Job" can both jeopardize marginal Republican incumbents in purple states while also making it harder for the party of win the presidency. If Trump's the nominee, why allow Clinton the pick when there are likely more Democratic Senators, perhaps even a majority? Cooke says McConnell can't give in "without breaking his party apart." If McConnell holds out and maintains his majority, does he have the nerve and power to refuse to consider any Supreme Court appointments over the next four or eight years or is that a level of obstruction too far even for a Heads-I-Win, Tails-You-Lose GOP (see filibusters, gerrymandering, money, SupCourt)? Charles thinks that's so out-there as to be nearly inconceivable. David doesn't put it past the Grand Old Party to at least try....that is, if the party's still around after Trump makes Goldwater look like a winner.

For Dimbleby, “freedom of expression [is] not only a right but a defining characteristic of what it means to be a civilized individual.” It’s a view he holds “very strongly,” but he admits that the valid exceptions to the rule are “where the difficult territory starts.” Dimbleby points to “very obvious circumstances when you dont have freedom of expression and should not have freedom of expression.” One of the exceptions involveslaws that say that if you express yourself freely, you are directly putting someone else’s life at risk.” This is not as clear-cut as it seems. The “dangerous territory,” he argues, begins with circumscribing language that incites anger or offense in others. We are back to the question of offense, and it is not a uncomplicated one. Although activists very often need to be uncivil to be heard at all, there’s also a necessary place for public discussions that are as thoughtful and careful as we can manage.

LISTEN HERE: By Mark Green Matalin and Corn preview the first Dem debate: Will HRC's new progressive push work? What's O'Malley's opening against an iconic woman and anti-plutocrat? Will Joe stop his tease? Then: after Oregon and four gun deaths per-hour all year, Right says answer is more guns. Really? Debate Preview I: Hillary & Bernie. After months of being target practice for a jaded media and no-holds-barred GOP, Hillary tried pre-debate to turn around a negative narrative by opposing TPP and Keystone, humor-izing herself on SNL, pushing back on Benghazi based on McCarthy's gaffe, going hard on gun safety after Oregon. Has she re-set race or at least stabilized it? Mary maintains that McCarthy's admission about the political motive of the Benghazi Special Committee was stupid because it enabled Hillary to "play to her sweet spot which is to play the victim.

If the Fed cancels a rate hike or announced QE4, it would damage the US dollar. It would be good for gold and precious metals, says Rick. Would this boost gold stocks? Not necessarily. Rick reminds that in the near term, gold stocks might decline along with the broad stock market even if gold rises or holds steady. In the 1987 crash, gold stocks fell when the broad stock market crashed. What about Commodities and Natural Resources? Rick warns that most commodities are linked to real economic growth and right now, its not looking promising. Oil and gas, minerals used in energy and agriculture, and base metals are seeing weak demand globally, he explains. Past quantitative easing and stimulus programs are part of the problem behind weak demand for commodities. When you lower interest rates, you bring demand forward.
