John Kerry’s attempt to negotiate US foreign policy with a hostile foreign government shows his utter disregard for law and his breathtaking arrogance

What John Kerry is now doing – trying to create a parallel understanding with a hostile foreign nation – is far more serious than anything Mike Flynn did in the days before becoming National Security Advisor to Trump.

This is a brazen attempt to privately negotiate – and assist a foreign government in confounding – U.S. foreign policy and national security.  Whatever the reader thinks of our president, deliberately undermining a sitting Chief Executive in this way is inexcusable.

When does a gross indiscretion, aimed at undermining President Trump through private negotiations with a sworn enemy of America, become something bigger?  Former Secretary of State John Kerry, deep into his months-long “shadow diplomacy” with Iran, is testing the point.

Truth is, the antiquated Logan Act – which bars exactly that sort of extra-legal, unofficial and patently officious and offensive behavior – has never been enforced, although referenced as late as 1991 by the Supreme Court.

That does not make Kerry’s behavior acceptable, patriotic or defensible.  In fact, at a time when everyone from President Trump to America’s national security team are working overtime to warn Iran against counting on that faux nuclear deal, Kerry’s actions – not for the first time – are quite unforgivable.

Irony on irony, Kerry’s “stealthy” anti-Trump diplomacy comes on the heels of the Democratic Party’s aggressive 2017 attempts to call a single conversation between incoming Trump National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and the Russian Ambassador a Logan Act violation.

One could even argue that, in a cascade of politically-motivated Logan Act attacks, illegal unmasking of Flynn by the Obama White House (for which no one was held accountable), FBI interviews that left interviewers divided on Flynn’s intent, and Flynn’s own bad judgement, Mr. Mueller got his biggest one-count guilty plea.

 

John Kerry should be charged and found guilty...because he is guilty

 

Think about it for a moment.  What we are now witnessing is a second former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential nominee openly aiming to reverse the results of the 2016 presidential election.

Hillary Clinton paid for opposition research that was funneled through partisan FBI leadership to a blind-sided FISA court permitting the government to spy on a member of the Trump campaign – eventually triggering the Comey leaks and the appointment of a special counsel.

Kerry is negotiating foreign policy.

The audacity of this bitter, anti-President Trump crowd is just breathtaking.  One wonders when they will simply show up at the White House and just ask for the Oval Office back.  By rights, they think it is still theirs.

As Fox News reported, Kerry is actively engaged in “shadow diplomacy” in an attempt to preserve the Iran nuclear deal, to which he feels attached.

Specifically, “Kerry sat down twice with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif in recent months to strategize in a bid to save the deal, as part of what the Globe described as ‘an aggressive yet stealthy’ mission to put pressure on the Trump administration …”

Now, with President Trump facing a May 12 deadline to review the Iran deal, “Kerry has been ramping up his meetings ahead of that deadline,” and “reportedly met with German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier — who was foreign minister of Germany when the deal was negotiated,” as well as “French President Emmanuel Macron twice” and by “phone with European Union foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini.”

Here’s what the Logan Act says: “Any citizen of the United States who …without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”

Assuming Mr. Kerry is not authorized to embolden the Iranians and Europeans with false hope, pushing the string our president is trying to pull, then he is in express violation of the act.  Unlike the Flynn case, there is little ambiguity here.  The violation is textbook.

Does that mean anything will happen?  No.  For his own purposes and to preserve his own unelected, unappointed, and unauthorized political agenda, Mr. Kerry will probably continue chasing the Nobel Prize he never got, so badly wants and still feels he deserves – all for that horrific Iran deal.

After all, Mr. Kerry handed over $1.7 billion to Iran, in American cash.  He must feel he is owed something.

That same $1.7 billion, if applied to American needs, would have bought a big chunk of a southern border wall, wider veterans’ benefits, one year of federal low income energy assistance, two-thirds of all federal job training, or all standardized testing for American kids for a year.  But never mind.  John Kerry needed his prize, and he still wants it.

President Trump’s Justice Department, consumed in responding to a mess created by Mr. Obama’s other Secretary of State, will likely let the Logan Act violation go.  And maybe that is the right thing.  We can only call out so many bad acts and bad actors.  And the Logan Act may be – as Professor Alan Dershowitz suggests – unconstitutionally vague.

Still, this does not make Kerry blameless, any more than he is blameless for having set this terrible Iran deal in motion, with his predecessor and with Obama, in the first place.  What his insolence, arrogance and indefensible continuation of private “shadow diplomacy” points to is this:  The Democrats will not accept the outcome of the American electoral process, and for the first time in American history are actively – and probably illegally – seeking to undermine it.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  What the Democrats continue to show the rest of America is this: They have no respect for the rule of law; they have no respect for the man in the Oval Office who beat their candidate quite handily; and they are willing to employ any means to openly oppose and undermine the US government.  Does that sound like a political party which should have won the election?  You can count it a huge blessing that they did not.  Donald Trump is showing America what a president should look like; all Obama ever showed us is what a terrible choice the Democrats made, and what a worse choice the voters made who sent him to the White House.  Donald Trump loves America; Obama still does not.

Upcoming investigation into Hillary Clinton, the FBI, and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court

Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano broke down the upcoming investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the FBI and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday. He expects subpoenas to start flying.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced John Huber, the U.S. attorney in Utah, will be investigating Clinton along with the FBI and the Department of Justice for their role in spying on then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

“The attorney general appoints the chief federal prosecutor for Utah to investigate three things,” Napolitano said.

“The exoneration of Mrs. Clinton before all the evidence was in. The exoneration of President Clinton and Secretary Clinton on Uranium One before all the evidence was in and the abuse of FISA by the FBI and the DOJ.”

See the interview on Fox News below:

Fox News interviews Judge Napolitano

Napolitano called Huber a “de facto special counsel” and expects him to convene a grand jury to begin issuing subpoenas.

“So this guy is in Utah. If he comes to Washington, D.C., and gets a half-dozen federal prosecutors assigned to him and a dozen or so FBI agents assigned to you him — He is a de facto special counsel. He’s doing what needs to be done,” Napolitano said.

“He’ll impanel a grand jury. They’ll present evidence to the grand jury. The grand jury will issue subpoenas. If the subpoenas don’t work, he’ll go to a federal judge and get a search warrant.”

Napolitano thinks Huber must make the trip the D.C. to be effective, because his power would be limited if he remains in Utah.  “If he stays in Utah, he cannot impanel a grand jury there to examine something that happened in D.C.”,  Napolitano said.

“All the evidence is in D.C. You’re examining NSA, FBI, DOJ, present and past. The Utah grand jury does not have jurisdiction over events in D.C.  He will be toothless if he stays in Utah,” Napolitano concluded.   “You present evidence to the grand jury, and the grand jury issues subpoenas.  That’s the way it’s supposed to work.”

Important brief update from The Swamp (otherwise known as Washington, DC)…

The nation’s media and political class have been fixated recently on the firing of the No. 2 person in the FBI, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe. McCabe became embroiled in the investigation of President Donald Trump because of his alleged approval of the use of a political dossier, written about Trump and paid for by the Democrats and not entirely substantiated, as a basis to secure a search warrant for surveillance of a former Trump campaign adviser who once boasted that he worked for the Kremlin at the same time that he was advising candidate Trump.

The dossier itself and whatever was learned from the surveillance formed the basis for commencing the investigation of the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russia by the Obama Department of Justice, which is now being run by special counsel Robert Mueller and has been expanded into other areas. The surveillance of the Trump campaign based on arguably flimsy evidence put McCabe into President Trump’s crosshairs. Indeed, Trump attacked McCabe many times on social media and even rejoiced when Attorney General Jeff Sessions fired him at 10 p.m. last Friday, just 26 hours before his retirement was to have begun.

Why the fixation on this? Here is the back story.

After the unlawful use of the FBI and CIA by the Nixon administration to spy on President Nixon’s domestic political opponents, Congress passed the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978. This statute outlawed all domestic surveillance except that which is authorized by the Constitution or by the new Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

That court, the statute declared, could authorize surveillance of foreigners physically located in the United States on a legal standard lesser than that which the Constitution requires. Even though this meant Congress could avoid the Constitution — an event that every high school social studies student knows is unconstitutional — the FISC enthusiastically embraced its protocol.

That protocol was a recipe for the constitutional crisis that is now approaching. The recipe consists of a secret court whose records and rulings are not available to the public. It’s a court where only the government’s lawyers appear; hence there is no challenge to the government’s submissions. And it’s a court that applies a legal standard profoundly at odds with the Constitution. The Constitution requires the presentation of evidence of probable cause of a crime as the trigger for a search warrant, yet FISA requires only probable cause of a relationship to a foreign power.

In the years in which the FISC authorized spying only on foreigners, few Americans complained. Some of us warned at FISA’s inception that this system violates the Constitution and is ripe for abuse, yet we did not know then how corrupt the system would become. The corruption was subtle, as it consisted of government lawyers, in secret and without opposition, persuading the FISC to permit spying on Americans.

The logic was laughable, but it went like this: We need to spy on all foreigners, whether they’re working for a foreign government or not; we need to spy on anyone who communicates with a foreigner; and we need to spy on anyone who has communicated with anyone else who has ever communicated with a foreigner.

These absurd extrapolations, pressed on the FISC and accepted by it in secret, turned FISA — a statute written to prevent spying on Americans — into a tool that facilitates it. Now, back to McCabe.

Though the use of FISA for domestic spying on ordinary Americans came about gradually and was generally known only to those in the federal intelligence and law enforcement communities and to members of the Senate and House intelligence committees, by the time McCabe became deputy director of the FBI, this spying was commonplace. The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (is it really a court, given that its rulings are secret and it hears only the government and it rejects the constraints of the Constitution?) has granted 99.9 percent of government surveillance requests.

So when McCabe and his colleagues went to the FISC in October 2016 looking for a search warrant to conduct surveillance of officials in the Trump campaign, they knew that their request would be granted, but they never expected that their application, their work and the purpose of their request — as far removed as it was from the original purpose of FISA — would come under public scrutiny.

Indeed, it was not until the surveillance of Trump and his colleagues in the campaign and the transition came to light — with McCabe as the poster boy for it — that most Americans even knew how insidiously governmental powers are being abused.

The stated reason for McCabe’s firing was not his abuse of FISA but his absence of candor to FBI investigators about his use of FISA. I don’t know whether those allegations are the true reasons for his firing or McCabe was sacrificed at the altar of government abuse — because those who fired him also have abused FISA.

But I do know that there are lessons to learn in all this. Courts are bound by the Constitution, just as are Congress and the president. Just because Congress says something is lawful does not mean it is constitutional. Secret courts are the tools of tyrants and lead to the corruption of the judicial process and the erosion of freedom.

And courts that hear no challenge to the government and grant whatever it wants are not courts as we understand them; they are government hacks. They and the folks who have facilitated all this have undermined personal liberty in our once free society.

The whole purpose of the Constitution is to restrain the government and to protect personal liberty. FISA and its enablers in both major political parties have done the opposite. They have infused government with corruption and have assaulted the privacy of all of us.

Four dead and dozens hospitalized in Georgia due to massive overdose of sold-on-the-street painkiller

At least four people are dead and dozens more have been hospitalized after overdosing on what authorities in Georgia believe to be Percocet.

The victims reportedly ingested a “yellow pill,” which authorities have not yet definitely identified.  The Georgia Department of Public Health called the pills “extremely potent” and warned that while the overdoses are concentrated in the middle and southern areas of the state, the drugs may be sold elsewhere, AJC.com reported.

Opioid overdoses, including prescription drugs and heroin, killed more than 33,000 people in 2015, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). More than half of the fatalities involved a prescription opioid.

Georgia Poison Center is currently working with the hospitals and gathering more information to determine whether these additional cases are connected to the cluster of overdoses reported in the past three days.

Emergency workers responded in the last 48 hours to reports of overdoses in Centerville, Perry and Warner Robins, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. However, the drugs might also have been sold on the street in other areas of the state.

Doctor are eagerly awaiting toxicology tests to find out what is in these pills that triggered this mass overdose.  They worry about the possibility of more cases if this drug is still on the streets.  “Difficulty breathing, slurred speech, most are coming through the ambulance,” Dr. Chris Hendry said.

The chief medical officer describes the symptoms of the rash of overdose patients that have arrived at a Macon hospital in the last 48 hours.  They all had one thing in common, they took pills that they thought were pharmaceutical quality pain meds. They were wrong.

“It’s being sold on the street as Percocet, however, when it’s taken, the patients are experiencing significant and severely decreased levels of consciousness, and respiratory failure,” Hendry said. “There have been four deaths associated with this opioid overdose.”

It’s not yet known what the pills contain.

In a recent trend, drug dealers are creating counterfeit pain pills that contain the powerful synthetic drug fentanyl but look like legitimate pain pills. Users have no idea of what they’re taking.  “Someone has developed this particular pill, this substance and passing it off as a prescription medicine. It’s not,” Sheriff Dave Davis said.  Davis said he’s working with state and federal law enforcement to catch those selling the drug, before there are more overdoses and overdose deaths.

“Somebody knows something about the person passing out this poison in our community and someone should make the call,” Davis said.

Doctors have issued an alert warning people not buy pain medications from someone on the street. They could produce deadly results.

Fox News says House Intelligence Committee Democrats “hell bent” on destroying Trump

The House Intelligence Committee is supposed to be more bipartisan than other House committees and a place where members conduct serious oversight of America’s intelligence agencies. Its members are expected to put politics aside to oversee sensitive intelligence programs that are crucial to protecting our nation’s national security.

That’s not what we saw in Monday’s rare open Intelligence Committee hearing.  Democratic members spent every minute of the hearing to smear the president before the cameras. By doing so, they made a mockery of bipartisan intelligence oversight.

Republican Intelligence Committee members were taken off guard by hyper-partisan behavior of their Democratic colleagues. At the hearing there were some useful exchanges between Republican members and Comey on the seriousness of recent leaks of intelligence as well as the unmasking and illegal disclosure of General Michael Flynn’s name from NSA reports.  Unfortunately, these discussions were overshadowed by the Democrats who were much more aggressive in pushing their Trump-Russia conspiracy theories.

Congressional Republicans must learn from this episode that the Democratic Party is so obsessed with destroying President Trump that their Democratic colleagues cannot be trusted to engage in good faith deliberations or hearings on anything that they can use to hurt Trump.  Sadly, this includes national security.

This means there should be no more open hearings on issues like Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. Additional open hearings that the Senate and House Intelligence Committees have scheduled on this issue should be made closed hearings.

Republicans seemed to have gotten the message on this. Friday, an open House Intelligence Committee hearing scheduled for next week on the Russia/election hearing scheduled was cancelled. It will be replaced with a closed hearing.

If open congressional hearings on the Russia/election or similar issues are held, Republican members must be much more aggressive in pursuing leaks of classified information and the abuse of U.S intelligence by the Obama administration to spy on the Trump campaign. Committee chairmen should run such hearings with iron gavels and give Democratic members zero leeway to turn them into political circuses.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes proved that he knows what he’s up against in the aftermath of Monday’s intelligence committee hearing by the way he handled new information suggesting that the Obama administration did surveil the Trump campaign.

Nunes was given intelligence, apparently under the table from U.S. intelligence officers, which indicates the names of Trump campaign aides were “demasked” in intelligence reports that had nothing to do with Russia or any alleged wrongdoing by the Trump campaign.

This is a big deal because the names of American citizens incidentally collected by U.S. intelligence agencies are blacked out and are not supposed to be revealed unless there is a compelling national security reason.

Nunes has been condemned by Intelligence Committee Democrats and the news media by the way he disclosed this information since he presented it to the press without informing his Democratic colleagues in advance. Nunes also informed the White House about this information before he briefed the committee and is refusing to tell Democratic committee members the name or names of his sources.

Maybe Nunes should not have brought this information to the White House before he briefed committee members.  (He apologized to them for this.)

My view is that Nunes took the right approach. He knows it is pointless to work with committee Democrats on this issue and if he had brought this intelligence to them before his press conference, they would have quickly leaked this information to the press to discredit it.

Nunes also is absolutely right in not revealing the name or names of his sources since there is a good chance committee Democrats would try to out these sources or get their managers to retaliate against them. I saw this happen when I worked for the CIA.

This story looks like it will soon get even more interesting. Fox News’ James Rosen reported Thursday that the committee may soon receive – possibly today — intelligence that “is said to leave no doubt the Obama administration, in its closing days, was using the cover of legitimate surveillance on foreign targets to spy on President-elect Trump.”

Nunes was smart to double down on his effort to fight back against Democratic politicization of intelligence oversight when he said at a press conference Friday that he was cancelling an open hearing next week on the Russia election hearing and had turned it into a closed hearing.

In addition, Nunes said he has recalled FBI Director Comey and NSA Director Rogers to testify to this hearing.

I assume Nunes’ new information, the FBI’s refusal to fully cooperate with the committee’s investigation and Comey’s failure to fully answer questions about intelligence leaks are why Nunes is recalling Comey and Rogers.

Predictably, Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee complained bitterly in a follow-up press conference Friday that Nunes cancelled the open hearing and questioned why Comey and Rogers were being recalled.

It was the height of gall for Schiff to complain that Nunes’ actions indicate he is not interested in an independent and objective investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election after Schiff and his Democratic colleagues proved at Monday’s hearing that they are only interested in using this investigation to destroy the Trump presidency.

Nunes realizes this and decided to fight back.  Until congressional Democrats start putting the good of the country above their hatred of President Trump, Republican congressional leaders must employ similar tactics to do the work of the American people and safeguard our national security.

Why liberals (still) want to get rid of the Electoral College voting system

Liberals argue it’s not fair that someone can garner more votes than his or her opponent but still lose the election because of the Electoral College. They say it’s a system that disadvantages Democrats.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  It does NOT disadvantage Democrats, it levels the playing field — as it was designed to do — so that rural votes have the same overall weight as big-city votes. What DOES disadvantage Democrats are lying, stupid, corrupt Democrats, as Clinton and Obama have both now proven beyond dispute.

 

As many have pointed out time and time again, if we decided elections purely by popular vote, candidates would not bother campaigning in Middle America. They’d focus on the big cities. New York and Los Angeles would decide every election.

The Electoral College makes it so that a candidate has to have widespread support across the nation, instead of having the support of a few, densely populated population pockets.

Bill O’Reilly of Fox News explains:

After Hillary Clinton won the popular vote, the left in America is demanding that the Electoral College system, put into place in 1787, be scrapped.

But there is a hidden reason for this. As we have reported, even though Secretary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million, the progressive state of California provided that margin, Clinton defeating Trump there by about 4.3 million votes.

So, if the Electoral College were abolished, presidential candidates could simply campaign in the nation’s largest states and cities – New York, LA, Chicago, Houston – and rack up enough votes to pretty much win any election.

That’s what the left wants – because in the large urban areas and blue states like New York and California, minorities are substantial.  Look at the landscape – Philadelphia, Dallas – Fort Worth, Miami – in all of these places the minority vote usually goes heavily to the Democrats.  Add that to New York City, LA, Chicago, and San Francisco and you don’t really have a national election anymore, you have targeted populations.

Newspapers like the New York Times and the L.A. Times have editorialized to get rid of the Electoral College.  They well know that neutralizing the largely white rural areas in the Midwest and South will assure liberal politicians get power and keep it.

Talking Points believes this is all about race. The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with.  Therefore white working-class voters must be marginalized, and what better way to do that than center the voting power in the cities?

Very few commentators will tell you that the heart of liberalism in America is based on race.  It permeates almost every issue – that white men have set up a system of oppression and that system must be destroyed.  Bernie Sanders peddled that. To some extent Hillary Clinton did. And the liberal media tries to sell that all day long.

So-called white privilege bad; diversity good.  If you look at the voting patterns, it is clear that the Democrats are heavily reliant on the minority vote.  Also on the female vote.  White men have largely abandoned the Democrats and the left believes this is because of racism – that they want to punish minorities and keep them down.

So that’s what’s really going on when you hear about the Electoral College and how unfair it allegedly is.

Summing up, the left wants power taken away from the white establishment and they want a profound change in the way America is run.  Taking voting power away from white precincts, and putting it in the hands of Democrat voting blocs, is the quickest way to do that.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Once again, Democrats are demonstrating that they want a voting system that is NOT best for the country, but best for them.  When are we going to see a Democrat — ANY Democrat — who is in favor of doing what he or she was elected to do, which is to make the USA a better place to live and work?

Here’s proof that common sense is not extinct yet!

Good grief, Charlie Brown. What a bunch of blockheads.

A school principal in Killeen, Texas, got her bells jingled after ordering a staffer on Wednesday to remove a Charlie Brown Christmas poster quoting the famous Bible passage in the book of Luke which says “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior which is Christ the Lord.” The poster also then shows Linus saying “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”

Well, ma’am, this is Texas. As in “don’t mess with.” And one of the things they don’t mess with is Christmas. So when the state attorney general called, the school principal probably knew to expect a lump of coal in her stocking.

“This is an attack on religious liberty and a violation of the First Amendment and state law,” Attorney General Ken Paxton said. “I am calling on the school board of the Killeen Independent School District to immediately reverse their unlawful decision.”

The school board has a long history of standing up for religious liberty. The Board of Trustees voted to change the name of “Winter Break” to “Christmas Break,” refused to cease praying before meetings, and ignored the federal Department of Education’s demand for transgender bathrooms.

In 2013, then-Gov. Rick Perry, a Republican, signed the “Merry Christmas” bill into law. TheBlaze reported that this legislation protected public school officials’ right to make biblical references to Christmas. The principal might have inadvertently broken this law.

This isn’t Linus’ first foray into the storm of political correctness. Fox News reported that last year a Kentucky school cancelled a Charlie Brown Christmas play due to the inclusion of Bible verses.

In another school, one horrified grandmother told WND that “Silent Night” had been replaced by the “Whip Nae Nae” song. Seriously.

The hypocrisy of school officials who preach diversity but miss no opportunity to exclude all things Christian is glaringly nonsensical.  December 25th  is called Christmas. Not Wintermas, not Breakmas, not Giftmas.  At the center of the holiday is Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God. He was a flesh-and-blood, real, historical person, the evidence for which is overwhelming, both in the Bible and in secular writings.  Our schools might as well start teaching that George Washington never existed as to try to ignore Jesus the Messiah.

Thank you, Linus.

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown.

Texas, we’re depending on you.

 

 Hillary’s doomed recount effort still doomed: “Borders On The Irrational,” says judge

Four days after Green Party candidate and Hillary Clinton point woman Jill Stein was informed by a federal district court judge that she had no standing to call for a vote recount in Michigan, she received the same “Dear Jill” letter this morning from a judge in Pennsylvania. From the Associated Press:

A federal judge on Monday issued a stinging rejection of a Green Party-backed request to recount paper ballots in Pennsylvania’s presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, and scan some counties’ election systems for signs of hacking.

In his 31-page decision, U.S. District Judge Paul Diamond said there were at least six grounds that required him to reject the Green Party’s lawsuit, which had been opposed by Trump, the Pennsylvania Republican Party and the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office.

Suspicion of a hacked Pennsylvania election “borders on the irrational” while granting the Green Party’s recount bid could “ensure that that no Pennsylvania vote counts” given Tuesday’s federal deadline to certify the vote for the Electoral College, Diamond wrote.

America’s Sore Loser Party (aka the Democrats) may just tell its members to hold their breath and pout till their faces turn a much deeper shade of blue.

 

NORM ‘n’ AL Note:  Call us crazy, but we think the whole “Hillary for President” thing bordered on the irrational.
