Hillary supporters are loyal. They put identy politics above good character, integrity and honesty. They want a lady Preisdent! The Clinton body counts continues to grow, will it matter?

Is Trump his own worst enemy? He still can’t resist the low hanging fruit. He still seems clueless that the media is not his friend. When he slips and misspeaks they will use it to tear him down.

The violence in Chicago should has reached a high alert level. This week the personal stories of the victims are heartbreaking. Are any elected officials talking about solutions? The DAILY tragedies go unmentioned by Obama, the mayor of Chicago and the aldermen.

In a 163 page report released Wednesday reveals Baltimore Police Department has violated the rights of citizens. A pattern or practice of discrimination. Jess Jackson says blacks should register to vote and elect people that look like us. Baltimore is run by black Democrats so how can the police department me racist?

These stories and any other breaking news.
