The goal of this website is to open the eyes of the American public to the corruption that is Hillary Clinton. This list will be updated every day with new leaks until the election on November 8th.

    Social justice warrior says we should abandon science because it’s “racist.” Then the hypocrite uses her smartphone! This video, which is from the University of Cape Town in South Africa, has been showing up on a lot of different YouTube channels, along with the new phrase “decolonize science” and the twitter hashtag #sciencemustfall.The woman says that science is “racist” and we should abandon it, because it does not treat African witchcraft and black magic the same way that it treats Newtonian physics.But she’s wrong on that – for two reasons.First of all, science is not “racist.” Science treats all races the...

    Glorious news, comrades! In response to the critique that her campaign consists mainly of throwing dirt at Donald Trump, Mrs. Clinton has now announced her first - and most important - executive plan: an ambitious roadmap to rebuild America's military: the Military Equality Program. Speaking to a large crowd of 11 supporters and 134 journalists in Washington, Mrs. Clinton delivered a rousing speech: "People no longer respect our military, because it is a source of inequality. Remember the first phase of Iraq II? We rolled them up like a carpet, you could hardly call it a war. Our soldiers were...

    Don't try this out in your neck of the woods. This "hunter" demonstrates why he is nominated for "Jackass of the month". Any serious hunter would respect the game that he pursues. Harassing a wild animal is un-called for, the following video highlights pure stupidity and also demonstrates how not to behave in the field. There would be nothing wrong with this clip if he intended to harvest the animal. But luring a moose to within inches, only to smack it in the antlers then let out a bark is, well, just plain idiotic. In my view, as someone who...

    Thanks to timely assists from Wikileaks, Trump has successfully framed Hillary Clinton as a crooked politician. Meanwhile, Clinton has successfully framed Trump as a dangerous monster. If the mainstream polls are accurate, voters prefer the crook to the monster. That makes sense because a crook might steal your wallet but the monster could kill you. As of today, Clinton has the superior persuasion strategy. Crook beats monster. Reality isnt a factor in this election, as per usual. If the truth mattered, voters might care that the Democratic primaries were rigged against Sanders. They might care that the Clinton Foundation looks...

In March 2012, Obama’s Justice Department blocked Texas’s voter ID requirement, claiming that it was “racist.”However, the very same Justice Department requires photo ID for everyone who enters.So let’s say that someone is denied their right to vote because they don’t have voter ID, and they want to file a lawsuit...

If it's not Donald Trump's rhetoric they have a problem with, you'll catch them whining about someone else who said something inflammatory. More than often, the rhetoric isn't even inflammatory, but they'll pretend it is just to create social proof.

    "Shark proof" is maybe more "Shark resistant". "Dont worry," they said "The cage is shark-proof" they said. I'm sure that's what the diver in this video was thinking when a great-white busted through the allegedly shark-proof cage. (Actually, I suspected there was a lot more we can't print on a family-friendly website going on in their mind). While this looks -and undoubtedly is- a terrifying experience, it's really not entirely the shark's fault. The shark couldn't see the diver -or the cage- while lunging at the shark bait, and sharks can't swim backwards, so after not moving forward, the shark's...

    For decades, gun owners were forced to make difficult choices or to compromise when it came to firearms storage. On one hand, owners needed firearms to be stored securely to protect them from theft and to ensure the safety of younger family members. At the same time, protecting those same loved ones often required that the firearms be quickly and easily available for access in case of an intruder or other emergency. There have been excellent gun safes on the market for decades, and many do their intended job very well. But until recently, gun safes were all about security...

The latest Wikileaks releases show the Clinton campaign's plans to use sexism, misogyny and character assassination to defeat any one of her Republican opponents. Exchanges in the Podesta email leaks show that Ted Cruz and Donald Trump were the preferred candidates for the Clinton campaign because of their less mainstream views and personal pasts.

Alan Garten, an attorney for Donald Trump, told the allegations are unequivocally false and politically motivated. Like the lawsuit filed in California, I believe, this one has very little chance of succeeding... There are also some obvious legal hurdles based merely on the claims in the suit that would also make this case quite difficult. For one, the statute of limitations on many of the claims including sexual misconduct, assault and battery has...

    My phone is telling me that my GPS signal has been lost, which is not the most comforting thing to hear while driving into a thick and winding nothingness in the woods of Fulton County, Georgia, just southwest of Atlanta. Im searching for Bouckaert Farm, the site of the first annual Many Rivers to Cross festival. The brainchild of Harry Belafonte and his daughter Gina, the two-day festival exists to, once again, connect all facets of the black oral and performance tradition with the fight for social justice. This isn't a new idea; similar concerts have been held many times...

Anyway, this first incident I want to illustrate took place at McDonalds restaurant in Wilshire Boulevard across from Ross Department store and California...

    On full display last night was the left's approach to dealing with their "political enemies." These people have more interest in "dialog" with ISIS and terrorists in general rather than try to change hearts and minds on public policy matters. As with every thing else with liberals, they most often accuse others of the very thing they are themselves guilty of, bullying other people is one such example. The natural outcome, when they win elections, is to use the force of the government to bully the populace - fascism, really. Mr. Pence, in my view, showed enormous restraint in dealing...
