Americans don't like being played for a sucker or patronized as 'little people,' so here's something else they won't like: being expected to believe without evidence that the Russians "attacked" our presidential election by "hacking" the DNC server -- and, the story doesn't go but this is what happened, exposing the sickening corruption of Clinton-Democrat machine. This Big Lie still-in-the- making has many fathers, mothers and caregivers, too: 1) the Democrats, to delegitimize Donald Trump's victory, paralyze his presidency, and sanctify Hillary Clinton's loss, thereby turning her into the patron saint of the New Cold and/or Hot War with Russia and even canceling our her and her husband's lifetimes of "collusion" with Beijing and Moscow dictators; 2) Democrat media (to do the same thing); and 3) Republicans, who can't wait to get back to Democrat/media business as usual, damn the Deplorables who won them their seats along with 31 states for Donald Trump.

Want to blow through the poisonous miasma of Russian Collusion to find out what was really going on in the American political system in the last year or two or twenty? Whatever you do, don't ask Congress to investigate -- not even to ask a few lame questions in five-minute increments. What's the point? Congress is the most expensive dog-and-pony-show on earth. We, the Taxpayers, pay through the nose for these guys and gals to go to "work" every day: by my calculation (635 X $174,000), Capitol Hill costs Americans at least $110,490,000 annually just for the privilege of being "represented." The only thing all that power and money coursing through those snaking hallways buys for us is power and money coursing through those snaking hallways. If you're looking for representative government, it's not to be found.
Just for a moment, imagine that the Time cover above features a different face: not that of the handsome young Donald Trump Jr., but the old one of Bill Clinton, whose every depravity has left him with a withered mask.
About those Comey hearings.
I really, really do not want to waste a lot of time on Donald Trump's Saudi Arabian visit; however, for the record, which is still important, it was a nightmare.
Occasionally, a dragonfly makes it out of the Swamp to arc across the sky, where, shimmering, it can still be seen.
From the Establishment, a news flash. The greatest threat today, writes Andrew A. Michta, dean of the College of International and Security Studies at the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies, is "the self-induced deconstruction of the West."
Brave new world without boundaries gets one: Milo Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from C-PAC after interview clips of him supporting "consenting" sexual relations between adolescents and adults surfaced, as they say.
After 15 years of war, billions and billions of dollars in fighting and training, more money than the US spent on the Marshall Plan on nation-building, over 2,000 combat deaths including scores by very our "Afghan allies," tens of thousands of injuries, including many grievous "dismounted complex blast injuries," another US general has come before the Senate Armed Services Committee to ask for more.
"Russian hacking" is the Left/Never-Trumpers' explanation for Donald Trump's election.
