Can you remember a President that has flat out LIED to your face more so than Barack Obama? Now that question can be easily refuted by any idiot Democrat liberal using their idiot ability to shrug off the facts, say "but", then proceed into a diatribe of George W. Bush.

Bigotry! Nativism! Racism! That's what elites in Britain, Europe and here have been howling, explanations for why 52 percent of a higher-than-general-election turnout of British voters voted for their nation to leave the European Union. But there is plenty of bigotry, condescension and snobbery in the accusations and the people making them.

They can't discern evil even if it bit their nose off! They choose to live in a happy bubble, waiting for their reality to resurface in the midst of war.

With congressional leaders once again at a stalemate over how to respond to a mass shooting, the Senate's most moderate Republican, Susan Collins of Maine, is developing a compromise measure that would prevent some terrorism suspects from purchasing weapons, while sidestepping partisan flash points that have doomed similar legislation in the past and threaten to do so again next week.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch held a press briefing on the Orlando attack, where she said that Omar Mateen, the culprit in this likely terrorist attack, and his motive may never been known.
