Inside the Wire

Ilhan Omar said she said she has an “unwavering love for America”. That is entirely possible. It is also possible to say, as James Comey did, that you don’t believe clandestine “court-ordered electronic surveillance” of someone, isn’t “thought of that as spying” even though working for a government or other organization by secretly collecting information…

A Wildfire of Straw Men

Democrats can’t exist without the protection of the media.
