The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there's one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It's an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel.

When the annals of mistakes and abuses in the FBI's Russia investigation are finally written, Bruce Ohr almost certainly will be the No. 1 witness, according to my sources.

This coming Monday, Rafael Madrigal Jr. will once again try to prove his innocence. RECOMMENDED VIDEO Madrigal was wrongly convicted of attempted murder in Los Angeles County in 2002 and was serving 25 years to life when a federal judge dismissed the case and ordered him freed in 2009, ruling that Madrigal's defense attorney was incompetent and failed to present evidence that would probably have led to a verdict of not guilty. Now, Madrigal is trying to convince another group of people that he's innocent: the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board. When someone in California is convicted of a crime he or she did not commit, the state is supposed to pay $100 compensation for every day the person spent behind bars. But the Sacramento-based board must approve the compensation, and it rarely does, as it almost always follows the recommendations of the attorney general. read more

Liberals are evil..

"Unacceptable" ~ Pelosi

Dreamers shafted by Obama, who failed to ensure them a permanent path to citizenship, and now left hanging by Pelosi & company.

Do Democrats care about them as much as they pretend to? or is their hatred of all that is Trump that strong?

Pretty incredible Trumps offer is a non-starter ....
