Elizabeth Warren answers a question
no one has really asked

Hot Air, by Andrew Malcolm

An extremely large percentage of America’s 326.5 million citizens did not run for president last year. Only one of us non-candidates, however, decided to write a new book to explain why. If you’re one of the many Americans who hadn’t thought to wonder why Elizabeth Warren did not run for president — or don’t really care — join the crowd. Warren´s new book about her non-candidacy comes out next week and would-be buyers are not yet lining up. The book is heavily biographical, which means Warren is definitely running for the presidential nomination of what’s left of the Democrat Party

Believing that Warren would be a viable candidate anywhere 20 miles from the Mass. border or 20 miles beyond the DC Beltway is proof that Democrats swallow their mouthwash for a cheap high.

If we continue to rebuild America after eight horrendous years of decline by Obama what would a leftist candidate run on? If Trump gets half of what he promised done and we move forward what would the left want?
Tear down America, everything is free, welcome everyone at the borders, what? There might be small pockets of insane groups that wants this or ´anybody but Trump´ but to go back to the Obama dream is not an option. EW will have to spew heap big lies to try to win the White ´tipi´.

Thank the Clintons for the Dems empty bench. The Clintons systematically destroyed (or corrupted) any young idealistic, attractive Dem politicians who the Clintons thought would be a threat to themselves. And bet the farm that the FBI files helped the Clintons to do the destroying.

I believe that the 2016 election proved that Americans really don´t buy the socialist Utopian lies that the Dems sell. And remember, Clinton outspent Mr. Trump by more than 2:1. When you consider that money really is the mother´s milk of politics, Clinton´s loss is astonishing. Also, the great slow down of illegal immigration, the deportations of many illegals, all of it, is going to hurt the Dems´ vote machine.

At the end of last year’s presidential campaign, a sufficient number of voters in just the right places elected Donald Trump to go shoot up Washington and fundamentally change the way it operates. He’s got the shooting part down just fine. But the big change part not so much. In fact, 30 weeks after taking office Trump is still shooting wild words and tweets at most anyone who criticizes him or hints at it.

Well, it’s about time. After some Confederate statue-topplings, but before any Confederate book burnings, California protesters are now targeting a horse. A beautiful Arabian. The creature’s unforgivable crime? His name is similar to the horse ridden by Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee 152 years ago, Traveler. Only Lee’s horse used two L’s–Traveller. Traveler is the official mascot of the University of Southern California. With a sword-waving, faux warrior in the saddle, he gallops all over the home field whenever the USC Trojan football team scores, which it’s expected to do a lot this season.

One of the more intriguing and lesser-known stories of World War II is the USS Indianapolis, a heavy cruiser that played a crucial role in ending the war against Japan but did not survive to see it.

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.

WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies. Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220

Trust in the mass media is at an all-time low. Two-thirds of Americans believe the mainstream press publishes fake news. Yes, there’s still much good journalism to be found, if you know where to look. Yet, ask reporters who’ve been around a while, and many will tell you that a lot of good journalism is being left unpublished. Good journalists hate what’s happening to the news. We have only ourselves to blame. Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines. Once-forbidden practices such as editorializing within straight news reports, and the inclusion of opinions as if
