    Nunes used political dollars for $15K in Celtics tickets, winery tours and Vegas trips

    WASHINGTON
    Rep. Devin Nunes used political donations to pay for nearly $15,000 in tickets to Boston Celtics basketball games as well as winery tours and lavish trips to Las Vegas, according to reports from the Federal Election Commission and two nonpartisan watchdog groups.

    Nunes, R-Calif., has reportedly been a Celtics fan since high school, though he grew up in Tulare, California. He used the money from his political action committee last year on three occasions to buy tickets.

    His PAC also spent about $42,741 since 2013 on catering, site rentals, hotels and meals in Las Vegas. The most recent instance was March 9, when the PAC spent $7,229 at seven different restaurants and hotels in Las Vegas.
    But what about the young socialist!?!?!!?!!

    yes, she did. and it will matter until all of the folks that now seem to be very interested in a political neophyte in a very liberal new york city congressional district will find some other improper word usage to criticize her on to keep the attention. maybe bernie will instruct her on the correct terminology she is allowed to use.

    Palestinian territories

    Palestinian territories and occupied Palestinian territories (OPT or oPt) are terms often used to describe the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and the Gaza Strip, which are occupied or otherwise under the control of Israel.[7][8][9] Israeli governments have maintained that the area involved is within territorial dispute.[10][11] The extent of the territories, while subject to future negotiations, have frequently been defined by the Green Line.

    The term "Palestinian Territory, Occupied" was used by the United Nations (UN) and other international organizations between 1998 to 2013 in order to refer to areas controlled by the Palestinian National Authority. In December 2012, UN Secretariat communications replaced this by the term State of Palestine.[12] The ISO adopted the name change in 2013.[13] But, as of August 2015, the UN Security Council continues to treat Palestine as a non-sovereign entity;[14] this prevents its admission to UN General Assembly membership.[15]

    We canít have people like her getting in and rubbing elbows with the NAMBLA GOP members. It would be unseemly.

    Palestinian territories
    So, you are saying she wasn't referring to Israel?

    Palestinian Territory and Palestine aren't the same thing.....now are they?

    Pretty in depth interview with Tabitha Isner-

    https://www.salon.com/2018/07/22/exc...ont-shut-down/

    When Jeff Sessions vacated his Alabama Senate seat to become President Donald Trump's attorney general, it seemed like an odds-on bet that another Republican would succeed him in representing the solidly-red state on Capitol Hill. By year's end, an insurgent candidate Doug Jones emerged victorious over Judge Roy Moore. It was the first the Yellowhammer State elected a Democrat to the Senate in 25 years.

    Now, Tabitha Isner, an ordained minister turned Democratic candidate is rapidly gaining momentum in what is becoming a highly-contested battleground in Alabamaís 2nd congressional district, which includes the city of Montgomery. The race is flying under the radar, as the Cook Report doesnít even have it listed as a competitive contest Ė fitting to Isnerís style of approaching challenges undaunted.

    The more of the Freedom Caucus that loses, the better.
