After a lot of consideration, USMB Staff has decided to try an alternate format for this Front Page forum. The purpose of having a Front Page Forum is to attract new eyes and views and have something fresh, informative and up to date in that spot.

Got to credit Lucy Hamilton for asking about a "Breaking News" forum, because that's what prompted this experiment. We do fine with breaking news threads in their own relevant forums right now, but it's a convenient way to give us better recruitment "advertising" on the Front Page.

So here's the outline of the "experiment". Any Poster may choose to place a "Breaking News" story in that forum SUBJECT TO the rules provided below. You don't HAVE to place such threads in THIS forum. You can still put them in appropriate forums. If there's a thread in the Home Page forum on this news flash, we MAY consolidate threads from lower forums to the Front Page forum when a story breaks -- especially if they started in another Zone2 forum. Posters should put EXTRA effort into preparing the OP. Wait 5 minutes or whatever's necessary to get adequate details. Include as much as you can. Multiple Links or Pics PREFERRED. Rules for that forum will be as follows:

1) Zone2 Rules

2) OP must be about news no older than 24 hours when posted. News can be about any broad interest subject.

3) Story must be linked to at least one major news outlet, newspaper or periodical. Other secondary links encouraged.

4) Members should include the Breaking News: prefix in front of the Title. (Admin may do this automatically for us -- so check current usage.)

5) Moderation reserves the right to move and place in a more appropriate forum. OR to move brand new threads to this Front Page forum..

6) Keep the conversations on the news topic as details comes in. Serious derailments will result in closure. And try to NOT extend the conversations much past the point where it's no longer "breaking".

Realize that during the...

What is going on guys? Are they stealing an election, and like Hilary, telling America to "go f yourselves"?

The lawyers for #BrendaSnipes will not allow comply with court order. That very same order, ruled that Snipes violated the Florida Constitution by not allowing access to these important records. I suspect the night will lead into drafting a motion for contempt...

Also, per Rubio:

#PalmBeachCounty elections supervisor bans media cameras from public ballot counting & threatens them with arrest. How much more will it take to convince skeptics that what is happening in Palm Beach & #BrowardCounty is not a normal elections process?

What a great news conference, Trump at his best battling self. I love it. America and the West needs this! Media clown tries to attack Trump as they always do and they end up looking silly.

Give it to them Trump, some of these anti-American sob's are so angry, $5.2B total spent on both sides and they can't deal with policies and issues and they lose Senate seats. STILL trying to paint Trump as "pitting Americans against one another", angry global socialist puppets in many cases.

The Caravan is viewed as a nice group of friendly illegals coming to add to the 22M already in your country. They don't want borders, ICE or even police in some cases. Some of them are bloody nuts.
