  1. The Donald is calling Hillary a crook.
    Hillary is calling The Donald a crook.
    They’re both right for a change.
    Hillary is more dangerous for the country than The Donald.

  2. Maybe.
    However:
    1. Trump’s position on trade is Sanders’ position and would likely lead to a recession/depression.
    2. Trump’s position on health care is Sanders’ and would make a bad situation worse.
    3. Trump is deranged and unstable. That is dangerous for the country.
    4. Trump’s big mouth will cause problems between the US and many other countries (friend and foe alike).
    Trump might be better than Hillary. He might be worse. Both are horrible and completely unsuited to be president.

  3. The Hillary defense.

    “The FBI recommendation not to prosecute Hillary Clinton and her staff on charges of mishandling classified information will give those accused of flouting national security rules a new line of defense even as it highlights a dual standard in how senior government officials are treated, several experts said Wednesday.

    FBI Director James Comey recommended Tuesday that no charges be filed against Clinton or her team for their handling of classified information while she was secretary of state, even though she was “extremely careless” in using a private email address and servers. Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced Wednesday that she agreed with Comey’s assessment.

    Lawyers who specialize in representing government and military officials who’ve had security clearances revoked said Comey’s recommendation offered them a new tactic in seeking to rehabilitate their clients, especially if Clinton is elected president in November.

    “I intend to use the Hillary defense,” said Sean M. Bigley, a lawyer whose firm handles dozens of cases a year involving national security clearances. “I really question how any agency can say someone is a security risk if the president of the United States did something similar.”

    He added, “We’ve had people lose 20-year careers for doing less than what she did.”

    Mark F. Riley, a former military intelligence officer who became a lawyer defending those accused of national security violations, said he, too, would invoke the Clinton recommendation.

    “I’m going to use it every chance I get, particularly in oral arguments. I’m going to bring it up over and over and over,” Riley said, adding that he thinks Clinton and her team engaged in “an egregious, egregious security violation.”

    “Any other person would have had their security clearance revoked,” he said.”

  4. Watchin’ the Comey hearing. Let me just say this. Elijah Cummings is a liar and a fraud. It’s disgusting that frauds like him hold high office in this country. It’s little wonder we’re in the shape we are when dirt bags like this hold positions of power.

  5. Good news. Chaffetz just asked the FBI director if they reviewed Hillary’s testimony to Congress. Her testimony to Congress held numerous lies under oath. The director said they didn’t and wouldn’t, unless directed to by Congress. Chaffetz told him that request would be sent to the FBI in a matter of hours for review. 🙂

  6. I can’t log in to read the rest of the story Michelle, but I will say from the little I read…it is worse than that.
    As you know I wasn’t married to my Disabled Vet when he was in the military so I don’t know all the ins and outs of how the system works but my view from this side of it is that it is much worse than we all think we know. As you know Mr. P is form medical military so he knows how to get around in the system, but even he has been jerked around. Why else has it taken over TWO YEARS for him to get approval for the stimulator in his back while they have been prescribing some heavy duty meds???? They also have no plan for a step down from these drugs. At one point they were giving the doctors a bonus for not writing prescriptions so the doctor refused to write him a prescription for one of the drugs that you must be carefully weaned off of. It was a drug for something un-related to the back pain, but has a side effect of calming nerve damage. It should have never been prescribed in the first place.

    I am not impressed with how our veterans are treated. He wouldn’t be getting the help he is getting if I didn’t go to church with this doctor who is finally doing something to help him and get him off of all the pain meds.

    Vladimir Putin’s speech – SHORTEST SPEECH EVER. Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia: “In Russia, live like Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia, to work and eat in Russia, it should speak Russian, and should respect the Russian laws. If they prefer Sharia Law, and live the life of Muslim’s then we advise them to go to those places where that’s the state law.

    “Russia does not need Muslim minorities. Minorities need Russia, and we will not grant them special privileges, or try to change our laws to fit their desires, no matter how loud they yell ‘discrimination’. We will not tolerate disrespect of our Russian culture. We better learn from the suicides of America , England, Holland and France , if we are to survive as a nation. The Muslims are taking over those countries and they will not take over Russia. The Russian customs and traditions are not compatible with the lack of culture or the primitive ways of Sharia Law and Muslims.

    “When this honorable legislative body thinks of creating new laws, it should have in mind the Russian national interest first, observing that the Muslims Minorities Are Not Russians.”
