This just in: I’m a news junkie in that if I have a spare moment, I’m either reading or watching the news. I watch local, national and international news.

Whew! My typing fingers are getting tired.
Please note that I did not filter out the ones saying positive things. There were none. On Reddit, the 6th largest site on the internet, readers fact check and down-vote articles that are seen as untrue or propaganda. For this reason, almost nothing from Fox News is ever in the top 100 article on politics.
Now, for a moment….remember Benghazi. The issues were (1) Did Hillary rightly or wrongly call this a terrorist attack and (2) Hillary should have allotted more money to protect this one single embassy.
There were 4 Republican led investigations into Benghazi and every one found … NOTHING,
Now, take a look at any one of the above articles. The Republicans would have had a fit over any of them. The same Republicans that praised Trump for meeting Kim Jong Un without preconditions. The same Republicans that threatened to impeach Obama for even mentioning that he would meet Kim Jong Un without preconditions.
Vote in 2018…you’re our only hope.
Time to save the world.
Up, up and away…
