Trump Vs Clinton: How Will Energy Fare?

While countless articles have been written about the differences between the two candidates, the Republican and Democratic Parties just released their official platforms, which details their dream agenda if they were to gain control of the White House and Congress. It should come as no surprise that they are far apart on energy issues.

Hillary's Lead Over Trump Shrinks To Just 3% As Two-Thirds Of Voters Find Her "Dishonest And Untrustworthy"

Following yesterday's report that a majority of Americans disapprove of FBI director Comey's decision on Hillary Clinton, it is perhaps not surprising that the Democrat's lead over Donald Trump has shrunk substantially in the latest NBC poll, and is now leading the presumptive Republican candidate by just three points after several days of "controversy" following FBI Director James Comey's recommendation that no criminal charges be brought against the former secretary of state over her use of a private email server.

Mass Protests Planned Following Castile Shooting, As Minnesota Governor Blasts Cops

Once again America is outraged, this time not over one but two police shootings in as many days, the second of which was particularly chilling because as we reported earlier today, the victim's girlfriend posted live video on the internet as it was happening.

"Now what we have is a country that doesn't believe in the system anymore. This case should have gone to a grand jury. Ordinary Americans should have heard this case.

Martin Armstrong: "James Comey Had No Problem Keeping Me In Prison Without Any Charges"

James Comey was the chief prosecutor in the Southern District of New York between 2003 and 2005. He had no problem keeping me in Federal Prison on contempt of court without any charges, indictment, or a civil complaint describing any crime whatsoever that they even admitted openly in court. There was never any charges, complaint ever filed and they publicly stated “there is no description of criminal liability.” So he is not someone who upholds the Constitution when it goes against government or the banks. As they say, the Department of Justice is really “Just Us” in reality. He has proven that once again.

FBI Recommends "No Charges" Against Hillary Clinton

In a surprising statement which concluded moments ago, FBI director James Comey announced that Federal officials have decided not to pursue federal charges against Hillary Clinton for her private email setup, an announcement that will send a shockwave throughout national politics.
