    The Federalist ^ | April 22, 2016 | Henry Scanlon
    Three years ago I attended the Conservative Political Action Conference and was struck by something I later concluded was probably a figment of my imagination. This year I returned, and, rather than having my recollection dispelled, it was confirmed. The young women who attend CPAC are spectacular. No kidding: Whatís up with this concentration of incredibly attractive young, conservative women? Itís noticeable and remarkable. They are beautiful and stylish in the way French women often are, which is to say in their own way, not in a conforming or predictable way. They all look like the girl the high school...

    If I offended you by calling you stupid, Iím really sorry, but I thought you already knew! Everyone has a constitutional right to be stupid but politicians have abused the privilege. Liberals/progressives have been taking control of Americaís institutions for over a hundred years: churches, public schools, universities, entertainment, politics, etc. So how has that worked out? Are we better off now than we were 25 years ago? Churches are supposed to be the moral compass of this nation but the churches have lost their way. Most of the mainline denominational churches are led by educated fools who are afraid...

"Clinton could not give an example of how classification of a document was determined," the FBI wrote in its notes. "Clinton did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system," the FBI wrote.

Spanning 100 light years across while lying only about 5000 light years distant, the Lagoon Nebula is so big and bright that it can be seen without a telescope toward the constellation of the Archer (Sagittarius). Many bright stars are visible from NGC 6530, an open cluster that formed in the nebula only several million years ago. The greater nebula, also known as M8 and NGC 6523, is named "Lagoon" for the band of dust seen to the right of the open cluster's...

This type of rhetoric is also heavily prominent in his campaign fund raising. One of the more epic and cringe inducing examples comes from an apparent leak by the Cruz campaign...
