Two-Faced Hillary Adjusts Her Gun Control Message and Volume for Different Audiences

Hillary Clinton is not known for her sincerity and forthrightness. In fact, a poll conducted last September by Suffolk University/USA Today demonstrated that more than one in five voters associate some term of deceitfulness with Clinton, including “liar,” “dishonest,” “untrustworthy,” and “fake.” This followed an earlier Quinnipiac University poll that found, “’Liar’ is the first word that comes...

Court Decision, Drug Lord’s Capture Illustrate Ongoing Fallout of Operation Fast & Furious
