“We have become an arrogant generation that virtue-signals that we can change the universe when in reality we cannot even run an awards ceremony, plow snow, fix potholes, build a road or dam, or stop inner-city youths from murdering one another.”

My favorite historian, Victor Hanson Davis, shows how Progressive leadership loves to lecture without actually solving any real problems.  In fact, Progressive programs often (usually?) end up hurting those they supposedly want to help.  You can read the full article here: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445596/californias-ineffective-government-progressive-ideals-conflict-reality

According to the New York Times – yes.  Here are excerpts from an article published in the NYT on 1/19/17:

WASHINGTON — American law enforcement and intelligence agencies are examining intercepted communications and financial transactions as part of a broad investigation into possible links between Russian officials and associates of President-elect Donald J. Trump, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, current and former senior American officials said.

The F.B.I. is leading the investigations, aided by the National Security Agency, the C.I.A. and the Treasury Department’s financial crimes unit. The investigators have accelerated their efforts in recent weeks but have found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing, the officials said. One official said intelligence reports based on some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.

and

It is not clear whether the intercepted communications had anything to do with Mr. Trump’s campaign, or Mr. Trump himself.

Note the language: “intercepted communications” and “some of the wiretapped communications had been provided to the White House.”  This certainly warrants (no pun intended) an investigation into the Obama Administration’s actions.

At the request of Congress, the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division of the IRS is reviewing the tax status of the Clinton Foundation.  The review was started in July and will not be completed by election day.  Read more details here.

There are currently five FBI investigations of Clinton aides and friends including Huma Abedin (via the Anthony Weiner investigation), John Podesta (who ran the Clinton Foundation), Tony Podesta (connected to a foreign corruption investigation), Terry McAuliffe, Governor of Virginia (related to illegal donations) and, of course, various staffers (Mills, Abedin, etc.) handling classified emails for Secretary Clinton.  You can read more about these investigations here.

Hillary Clinton began her political career working for the Watergate Committee’s chief counsel.  Now Secretary Clinton finds herself under investigation for covering up crimes committed by the candidate and her staff.  National Review’s John Fund points out the parallels in History Repeats: A Nixonian Cover-up in the Home Stretch of the Campaign.   Charles S. Faddis, a 20-year CIA officer, explains why Hillary’s emails matter and why it is obvious that she broke the law.  Roger Simon at PJ Media argues that Clinton’s candidacy has left America at Its Most Perilous Crossroads Since World War II.  Finally, I urge you to watch excerpts of a speech by Supreme Justice Anthony Kennedy outlining the importance of the Rule of Law for good governance, for effective democracy and for personal freedom.
