The Russians simply applied the techniques they’d already been using on their own citizens to the 2016 American presidential campaign, taking full advantage of the fact that no one would […]
Donald J. Trump ✔@realDonaldTrump Did hillary clinton ever apologize for receiving the answers to the debate? Just asking! 4:21 AM – 3 Apr 2017 The first laughably absurd observation about […]
It’s a curious posture. Trump doesn’t want Congress to investigate a foreign adversary subverting American democracy on his behalf, but he does want Congress to investigate a news organization – […]

Liz and I were both delegates to The Clark County convention which was a disaster. About 4 times as many people showed up for the convention as expected and the convention had to be reconvened weeks later to complete the voting.
Again, both Liz and I were selected as delegates to the Nevada State convention which met in Reno. This was better run, but ran about an hour or two behind schedule all weekend.
Even though President Bill Clinton came to Reno to address the convention, the results of the caucuses were reversed at the convention.
