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...

Trump said he believed Putin over his own intelligence agencies. Trump then said he misspoke, he does actually trust his intelligence agencies VERY much. Well just over an hour ago on Twitter Trump once again said that the Russian meddling investigation is all a hoax.

So President Obama knew about Russia before the Election. Why didn’t he do something about it? Why didn’t he tell our campaign? Because it is all a big hoax, that’s why, and he thought Crooked Hillary was going to win!!!

IMHO, President Trump has driven them plum loco.

This is funny, but the libs are likely to resort to violence like they did when they shot up the Republican baseball practice in Alexandria last year.

President Trump really needs to have Haldol dumped into the water supply of major liberal metropolis, and get these people to mellow out.

Even on duck-boats, life preservers should be worn...

'Duck boat' capsizes in Missouri, kills at least 11 - police
July 19, 2018 - At least 11 people drowned on Thursday when an amphibious “duck boat” capsized and sank in stormy weather on a lake in Missouri with 31 people, including children, on board, as divers searched for other possible victims, police said.

'The Senate on Thursday unanimously approved a non-binding resolution against making current and former diplomats available to the Russian government for questioning in exchange for cooperation with the Mueller probe.

Why it matters: This is a blowing rebuke against President Trump who was initially considering the request from Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling it an "incredible offer." Trump's willingness to consider handing U.S. citizens, including former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul, for interrogation triggered widespread outrage. The White House ruled out the request just hours before the Senate vote.'

Senate votes against Putin's proposal to question Americans in exchange for cooperation

It is incredible that Trump was even considering Putin's ridiculous offer.

If you don't think he should have dismissed it immediately, you are an idiot or a disloyal American...or perhaps both.

Hats off to the Senate for doing the right thing and stopping Trump from trying to do this madness (had he decided to take Putin's offer up). And sending a clear message to Putin (since Trump refuses to) that his insane idea will NOT be matter what Trump tells Putin in private.
