A FIFTH Clinton presidency? Hill, no! by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 I keep hearing that Hillary Clinton would be "Obama's third term." The math is wrong. Barack Obama served the Clinton crime family's third and fourth term. Electing Hillary would doom America to a fifth Clinton White House. From 1993-2001, under the "Two... Read More

Congressional Black Corruption by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2016 If “Black Lives Matter,” then why have entrenched members of the Congressional Black Caucus spent more time enriching themselves than taking care of their neglected constituents?

In New York’s 22nd congressional district, it’s spelled: R-I-C-H-A-R-D H-A-N-N-A.
