But For FBI Director James Comey, Hillary Clinton would be The Next US President

from Gronda Morin

Gronda Morin

cartoon-dt-kissing-comey-imrsI am convinced that the FBI’s letter, instigated by its Director James Comey was the proximate cause (the final straw) that caused the democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton to lose to the republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump. If the vote were held on October 27, 2016, the day before the controversial FBI “October Surprise” letter was made public, Hillary Clinton would have prevailed.

According to Nate Silver, as of October 27, she had an 81% chance of winning, but after the letter was released, her chances went down to 65%. This is true despite all the obstacles Mrs. Clinton had to overcome, starting with her husband Bill Clinton’s foolish interference by his importune meeting with the DOJ chief, Loretta Lynch at an airport where he spoke to her for about 20 minutes.

Even though I once promised myself to avoid all political talk on Facebook and stick to family pictures or light updates on the state of my being, for the past month or so I just couldn’t help myself. I poured a glass of wine as soon as I got home from work and thought, no, no, stay away, stay awayno one’s mind has…

The aftermath of the storm. A hurricane story

Have a listen! 🙂

Allie Potts Writes

Hurricane Matthew (2016) Hurricane Matthew on October 4th, 2016. Image courtesy of Wikimedia commons There is a storm coming, and for once I’m not being metaphorical. It’s an actual blow you down and knock you around kind of storm. The kind of storm that gets named as if humanizing it will somehow make it any less dangerous.

This isn’t my first hurricane. That dubious honor goes to a storm known as Hugo. I was just a kid at the time and barely paid attention to the fuss made about the storm on the news. Why should I? It formed far away and was impacting people I’d never met. Going to school and playing with my friends were much more important.

The hurricane weakened as it came in contact with land. I was even less concerned. I went to bed that night thinking that while there might be a few gusts and a little…
