    Now what? Pretty clear she broke the law in an attempt to disable FOIA inquiries and hide whatever she was hiding from public view. Did I mention she had the Ambassador to Kenya fired during her tenure for doing pretty much the same thing? I like that little detail. Shows real determination on her part. But what now? If she isn't indicted, we have moved into a totally new dimension where outright and provable corruption is permitted by high officials. On the other hand, if she is indicted, we are in banana republic zone where candidates for President are under...

    It would appear Trump fever has broken. It would seem the down, dirty, and ugly attacks by Rubio particularly, but also Romney, Cruz and others have kicked in. I sense that Trump has become a figure of ridicule, and no politician survives that. Plus his latest flip flops, like on torture, have weakened him as a serious person, although that may not have been obvious at the time. I think the teflon has worn off. If true, Chris Christy gets the bad timing of the year award

    Have you been following the hack story? Chinese hackers compromised key US Govt database and stole the records of everyone who had a security clearance, including their SS number, and personal, medical, financial, and family and relative information. they also appear to have stolen similar data for most everyone who is, or who has been, a government employee. The databases were unencrypted and not subject to any real security protection including the most basic intrusion detection systems. As reported, the security that is standard on an iPhone is superior to what the US Govt was using, in spite of having...
