“More than half the people outside the government who met with Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state gave money — either personally or through companies or groups — to the Clinton Foundation….
“At least 85 of 154 people from private interests who met or had phone conversations scheduled with Clinton while she led the State Department donated to her family charity or pledged commitments to its international programs, according to a review of State Department calendars released so far to The Associated Press [after three years of asking, begging and finally suing].
“Combined, the 85 donors contributed as much as $156 million. At least 40 donated more than $100,000 each, and 20 gave more than $1 million.”
You can’t prove pay-to-play better than that. Our modern Ma Barker doesn’t need a gang to rob. She is one-girl gang.
What a time she will have in the White House. She won’t need to steal the antiques.
He’s finally going to Louisiana, after Trump embarrassed him into it.
…will be watching the leftists go mad. The mere thought of it already is enough to drive their usual blatant hypocrisy out into the open for all to see:
“Just look at the coverage on Melania Trump’s white dress at the RNC. Elizabeth Wellington, a fashion writer at the Philadelphia Inquirer, suggested that Trump’s dress symbolized racism. ‘To many, that outfit could be another reminder that in the GOP, white is always right,’ she wrote.
“Vanessa Friedman of The New York Times wrote, ‘Ms. Trump’s choice of a white dress…sent all sorts of interesting subliminal signals.’ Just a week later, Wellington gushed over Hillary Clinton’s all-white DNC outfit. ‘White is a hue that’s both soft and strong.
“‘But it was appropriate: Her acceptance speech was a coming out of sorts. Clinton’s white pantsuit is telling us she has arrived. This is surreal. A dream come true….’”
No doubt about it. Melania’s white dress was intended to appeal to the Ku Klu Klan. While Hillary’s white pantsuit was meant to
hide her cankles show her angelic nature. I can’t wait for Vanessa’s nightmare. Pretty please.
“In 1935 the United Daughters of the Confederacy constructed Confederate Memorial Hall as a residence for girls at Nashville’s Peabody College. Originally residents who were descendants of Confederate veterans and agreed to become teachers were granted free room and board. The school and dormitory were acquired by Vanderbilt University in 1979. Earlier this month university chancellor, Nicholas Zeppos, announced that the name ‘Confederate’ will be sandblasted off of the building.”
The precious little buttercups of Vanderbilt would rather play “let’s pretend” than have their tender sensitivities subjected to the rigors of historical truth—lest they be mightily offended.

“Tonight, I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen in this country who wants a better future. The inner cities of our country have been run by the Democratic Party for 50 years. Their policies have produced only poverty, joblessness, failing schools, and broken homes. It is time to hold Democratic Politicians accountable for what they have done to these communities. It is time to hold failed leaders accountable for their results, not just their empty words.”

Globalization has changed many a once-famous American brand that is now made in China or Malaysia or even Vietnam to something less than its former grandeur. Cheaper, yes, but often not as good.
Corning Ware, however, took its hit back in the late ’90s when the company was bought out and its famous pyroceram cookware (made of the same stuff as rocket nosecones, the old ads said) was soon replaced with cheaper, and less resilient, stoneware. And made in China.
I discovered all this the other day when I dropped one of Mrs. Charm’s Corning Ware pyroceram casserole dishes taking it out of the dishwasher. It broke in half. Replacing it I soon discovered isn’t impossible but it takes more than a quick trip to the store. I went to three before giving up. All they had was the stoneware.
Old pyroceram Corning Ware is still sold, but
only mainly in used versions. Amazon has them at new prices. The material is famous for not absorbing anything, hence a used casserole dish doesn’t carry any trace of the food that’s ever been cooked in it. Plus it can be swiftly moved from oven to freezer (or vice-versa) without coming apart—stoneware does absorb and it can’t stand rapid temperature changes.
If you have trouble believing that or anything else on this arcane subject, the above link is a great place to start. And the cooking blog below provides further illumination:

UPDATE: Corningware still sells the pyroceram product but in limited sizes.
