Benghazi was the Witch Hunt

Part of me seriously wonders if the lengthy Benghazi investigation which never resulted in anything was an attempt to desensitize the American public to the gravity of an ongoing federal investigation?

When Will It End?

Marv Conan is an award-winning musician and activist whose music dovetails with his politics in often quite brilliant ways. We’ve written about him before.

Huffpost is reporting that Donald Trump is working to make it easier and cheaper for US gun manufacturers to sell their product overseas. His greed knows no bounds. Makes perfect sense to me that he is reducing the restrictions on the exportation of death so arms manufacturers and dealers can make a bloody buck. SAD!…
