Why the Media Madness Over Hillary's Emails is Just Another Smokescreen

Notwithstanding feverish media squeals about Hillary Clinton’s “private” email usage as Secretary of State, the fact is she adhered to the laws in place during her four years in that position.  The law insisting solely upon .gov email usage for government employees was not passed until nearly two years after Clinton left office, as Clinton made clear in Tuesday’s press conference.  Click-hungry pundits and agenda driven Republicans’ fear of Clinton’s “se...more

If that's all the bracelet will tell me, it isn't going on my wrist. Enter the Apple Watch. ...more

Not all bloggers are—or want to be—journalists, but there are certainly occasions when a blogger is well positioned to report the news firsthand.

Earlier this week, a central California jury convicted undocumented single mother Nan Hui Jo of kidnapping her then one-year-old daughter, when she escaped from her boyfriend and the child’s father, Jesse Charlton. ...more
