None dare call it treason
Nobody seems to see that in House of Cards the Underwood character is a Democrat and the scandal he is involved in is patterned on an actual scandal from Bill Clinton's days as President. Clinton accepted money laundered from China for reelection and allowed illegal rocket and satellite technology to be transferred to China. People went to jail both for the Chinese money laundering and for the illegal technology transfer but Clinton skated.
This was a plea deal and his goofy defense should not have anything to do with it. Why do none of these reports mention the Judge's name or the prosecutors name. They are the guilty parties for taking the deal. I smell bribes.
This needs a follow-up study to see how many guilty people were convicted with these short-cuts. Just because the system was corrupt does not necessarily mean an "innocent" was convicted.

I don't agree with him on gay marriage but have almost never disagreed with him on anything else. He knows where the bodies are buried at the UN and would be expected to use the US purse to make needed reforms. He is an unashamed hawk as I am so he will protect US interests. He won't make any apology tours as the fool Obama has done.
Obama was Trayvon Martin 35 years ago. In high school he belonged to a group whose chief goal was to smoke as much dope as was possible. Obama dedicated his high school annual to his dope dealer. The difference was Obama was raised by his mother's white parents who were able to knock enough diciplne into him to get him back on a path to an education and college. Perhaps Martins father might have been able to do the same for him but he had just been turned over to his father by his mother because she could no longer control him. He attacked Zimmerman before his father had had a chance to straighten him out. But we will never know.

This is more like Inspector Cluseau than John Le Carre. Obama plays the part of Peter Sellers.
As many viewers as the network news channels have lost they are still, unfortunately, the main source of news for most Americans.
This was the work of Hillary Clinton who actually ran the Justice Department through her puppet. Her purpose was to sabotage the campaign of Al Gore for President so she could run later. Both Al Gore and the other Democratic candidates came out for keeping the child because they feared losing Florida over the issue which Mr. Gore did by a whisker. Hillary was also behind the disastrous final assault on the Branch Dividians which killed so many children-she thought the standoffs was making the administration look weak.
you forgot their favorite "divisive".
