Ask Attorney General Lynch to Speed Up the FBI Investigation of Hillary Clinton

The longer the FBI investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of private e-mails takes, the better it is for the Republicans.

If this investigation drags on for months, it could propel Donald J. Trump into the White House, regardless of whether HRC is ultimately indicted or not.

Send an e-mail to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking her to please do all she can to speed up the FBI investigation of Clinton's e-mails.

Washington Post, April 29, 2016

Former Alabama governor Don E. Siegelman was sent to solitary confinement this week at the Louisiana facility in which he is imprisoned on political corruption charges, according to his son, Joseph Siegelman.

We Are The Sons & Daughters of Liberty

This is almost entirely due to the independent Senator from Vermont, Bernard “Bernie” Sanders. Bernie has thrust progressive ideals and policies into mainstream American politics and we progressives owe him more gratitude then any of us can possibly express.

Inspection- Trump May Damn Well Win

Who could imagine, despite the shallowness of past campaigns, that even if a lead Republican ran ads nationwide calling himself, "The Mr. Nothing but Brag and Blather Candidate," he might win anyway? He certainly enjoys that kind of ad hominem-based campaigning,and suffers little, to not at all, for it. Indeed it often makes his numbers soar.

41 YEARS AGO TODAY marks the end period in which NIXON COMMITTED TREASON

41 years ago today in 1975 American helicopters were landing on the roof of the American Embassy in Saigon South Vietnam, desperately trying to evacuate American personal as troops from North Vietnams regulars surrounded the city.

That was 7 years after President Lyndon Johnson had brokered a peace treaty between the Americans and their South Vietnam forces and North Vietnam. Negoiations that would be subverted for the political gains by Richard Nixon.

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
