    I think Mrs. Clinton covers that in her new book. It was the lizards! The lizards!

    Just depends which dog whistle frequency you're tuned for?

    To be fair, government at various levels in this country have a long-standing tradition of infiltrating groups of citizens to gather intelligence, and sometimes to provoke them to action so arrests could be made. During the Civil Rights era in the 1960s, I suspect some groups were made up entirely of agents from different departments spying on each other :-)

    I have an uncle who claims Donald Trump is a provocateur in the pay of the Democratic National Committee with a mission to destroy the GOP. He may drink his breakfast most mornings, but if I ever see Trump rip off a mask to reveal Elizabeth Warren I won't be able to say I wasn't warned.

    I just watched "The Free State of Jones." It provides an alternate Southern perspective.

    "No Will, he just died."
