    Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch, will appear tonight at 8:00 PMEDT on C-Span's Q&A to discuss his book "Clean House: Exposing the Government's Secrets and Lies" and his work in investigating the corruption of the Obama administration.

Judicial Watch has been aggressive and effective in using the courts to shake free information that otherwise we wouldn't have regarding the emails and other corruption.

    Dear Freepers Basil, suffered a stroke in early January. It left her paralyzed on her right side and unable to speak. She's got very limited speech and her mental faculties are diminished. She spent many weeks in a therapeutic hospital but when it became apparent that her condition wouldn't improve, our family decided she'd be much happier at home. Hopefully we can minimize her suffering and keep her comfortable. Please pray for her, and Mr. Basil who is an amazing care giver and hasn't left her side.
