Montana Gov. Steve Bullock had about as bad a week as a candidate can have without throwing in a sex scandal.

Attorney General William Barr appeared today before the House Judiciary Committee to answer questions about riots in American cities.

If there were ever any doubts about the evil intentions of Democrats, those doubts evaporated in the opening statement of Rep.

He bluntly titles the piece, “It Doesn’t End Well.” I recommend the essay to everyone who wants an unvarnished assessment of the abdication of responsibility by our American ruling class.
