A Readers’ Digest Condensed Version of the Election  •  Take a deep breath and try to follow along: Hillary cheated her way into the presidential candidacy.

There’s No Disputin’ that Old Vlad Putin  • Recently we’ve heard a lot of loose talk about how the November election was “hacked” by the Russians. If one Googles “election,” “hack,” and “Russians” without quotation marks, one is liable to get 20,100,000 hits. More » • (502 views)
