🌟Jim Cardoza: Why Hillary Clinton is Flashing a Devilish Smile

"Certainly, one does not need 20-20 vision to see warts on Donald Trump. They are neon. He is brash, arrogant, far too glib, frequently insulting and routinely defensive. Unlike a polished politician, he hasn’t learned to measure his words and shroud his intentions. But while he is admittedly flawed in a myriad of ways, he does present two very under-appreciated qualities in the era of FBI cover-upssecret domestic surveillance and other hidden agenda schemes."

Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection

FBI DIRECTOR DISCOVERED ON THE TAKE FROM THE CLINTON FOUNDATION

Economic Inequality Is Not Increasing. Propaganda Is

by Gary North.    It never ends. We are besieged by articles on today's increasing economic inequality. These articles have three things in common: 1.

Here is the main problem with these  ... MORE
