How could a cheap, effective drug, FDA-approved and in use worldwide since 1955, suddenly be restricted for outpatient use by American physicians? On March 28, 2020, as physicians worldwide were seeing striking success using hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, the FDA erected bureaucratic barriers.
“What difference at this point does it make?” Those were the infamous words used by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her January 2013 testimony to the U.S. Senate, in response to Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), when he accused the Obama administration, including Clinton, of misleading the American people about what caused the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

The coroner’s office of the Amador County Sheriff’s Department in California has done a near 180-degree turnaround on the death of Department of Homeland Security whistleblower Philip Haney. After initially stating Haney’s death appeared to be “self-inflicted,” the department has subsequently stated that news reports attributing his death to suicide were dispensing “misinformation.” It said further that the sheriff's office is "currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate."

“I’ll have those n*****s voting Democratic for 200 years,” author Ronald Kessler quoted President Lyndon B. Johnson as saying. But this prediction may fall flat, according to CNN analyst, ex-Obama Green Jobs “Czar,” and self-proclaimed communist Van Jones. Rendering commentary on CNN after the State of the Union address Tuesday night, Jones warned Democrats that they may face electoral disaster in November because President Trump is “going after enough black votes to cause us problems.”
Barack Obama certainly isn’t feeling the Bern, unless it’s indigestion.
