ROBERT KNIGHT — Despite several horrifying current examples of nations in the grip of socialism, many of America's millennials are happily skipping down the socialist Yellow Brick Road toward an Oz that could never be. It isn't just Bernie Sanders' young legions of admirers. A recent survey showed that a whopping 44 percent of young people favor socialism over capitalism, with seven percent opting for outright communism and seven percent more for fascism. It adds up to a majority wanting total government control over the economy -- and their lives, if they stop to think about it.... (more)

This is a commission that has reached out to the public to gather information and concerns about voting irregularities in America's elections. My letter to this Commission is attached, as an example.... (more)

"You know, this dossier that Fusion GPS did -- actually we know that Hillary Clinton and the DNC hired a firm -- Perkins Coie actually hired them to do the dossier," Mr. Meadows, North Carolina Republican, said on Fox News. "But there's other disturbing information that would suggest that the Obama campaign, the same month that she did that, paid another $900,000 to the same law firm."... (more)

CLIFF KINCAID — The so-called Trump Dossier, financed by the Hillary campaign and provided by the KGB through a former British intelligence agent, has fizzled out. It has been supplanted by the Moore Dossier, concocted by Washington Post reporters working for their billionaire owner, P.T Barnum-like Jeff Bezos. This variation of the ploy, with a new target, seems to have legs. Many Republicans and conservatives are falling for it.... (more)
