It is time for the Democratic Party to undergo a fundamental reassessment. The Democrats will shortly choose a new Democratic National Committee (DNC) chairman. Hopefully, the DNC will choose wisely as the Democratic Party needs to be re-imagined as less of an insider’s club focused on raising money, more of an advocate for the working-class, and not rest on the current status quo. With a new, reinvigorated DNC and a new presidential nominee, the Democrats can take back the White House in four years.

FACT: Some Judges can and will commit crimes, the problem is exposing them and getting them prosecuted. When someone exposes a judge the first thing they do is attack the person who reports them. Police often side with the judge because they can’t be objective due to working under that judge. This allows unethical judges to commit crimes, abuse victims and stay immune to prosecution.

Like the blazing sparks of a wild prairie fire, the political conflagration set off by Arizona's Senate Bill requiring police to demand identification and arrest anyone suspected of being in the state without proper immigration documents is burning.

The VA this week outlined which ships are now considered to have been exposed to Agent Orange during Viet Nam. A number of offshore “blue water” naval vessels conducted operations on the inland “brown water” rivers and delta areas of Vietnam.
