The Case Against Criminal Charges For Hillary Clinton

I want to renew a call I made in the days just after the election, that trying and convicting Hillary Clinton for the long list of crimes she stands accused of doing may not be the best way to deal with her. Especially her legacy. I mean this in the purest sense of wanting to ... Read More

Democrats Place Bounty on Trump Agenda, GOP Leadership Aims to Collect

If you stop to consider the profile of James Hodgkison there is more there there than first imagined.
