What about the Clinton corruption investigation?

Since FBI Director James Comey delivered a blistering indictment of Hillary Clinton's email practices on Tuesday, and then outrageously declared that no "reasonable" prosecutor would bring charges, it seems that many in the press view the matter as closed.

Rediscovering God in America

America's most iconic author, Mark Twain, once observed that "it ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so."
