What really happened with Hillary's EMails?

Every time that man is in a tight spot (it happened in the debate a few times) he pivots away from answering the question and throws out accusations at Hillary. So let's talk about those emails. I wonder if there is one single thing anyone at his rallies could explain about the contents, the rules, the investigation, or the subjects.

The facts in Hillary Clinton's Emails shocked me because the reality is so different from what he says.

You could find a needle in a haystack with the amount of money and effort spent on Hillary's emails. There was no needle, nothing to pin on Hillary -- but give them credit -- they would have found it if it was in there. No matter how many more times they look for that needle they'll never find it.

They're looking in the wrong haystack. They ought to look in their own haystack -- in spite of the weeds, thorns and rot. There they might have better success at making the search worth it. Let's see all their emails - they're searching through hers. I wonder what they are hiding?

Watched the final Presidential Debate Tonight

UPDATED after the debate We watched the debate live on NBC tonight. Chris Wallace of Fox News asked  Hillary Clinton and her opponent about debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots, and fitness to be president, in the 90 minute debate.

Summary: Hillary closed the deal, and I believe she will be the next President of the United States.

Both candidates were asked if they would abide by the results of the election. Hillary said yes. He refused and said he would answer at the time, leaving open the question of whether he is trying to start an insurrection.
That man says "The election is rigged".

The Zen Gnau

If I could paint a Gnau
I would show it very bright,
sprouting hands and feet - and eyes of Light.
The Gnau is large, it fills near space
In space afar it has no place.
The Gnau is opportunity knocking
On the door of my mind in its waking.
The Gnau keeps pace with every ticking second
It looks back never, eyes only on the present.
It looks forward not, for now is all it’s got.
If I could paint a Gnau it could be seen
as the most marvelous creature that ever has been.

Bengahzi - are you confused, perplexed and wondering? join the crowd

If you are confused, perplexed and wondering about Benghazi, you are with a crowd of like-minded people who are too busy working and taking the kids to soccer to sort out the government. (The other crowd thinks they are 'in the know' because that man told them what to think)

Are you willing to work at getting the story of what really happened? No simple sound bites, but excellent investigative journalism. One wonders how the House Committee could spend 4.6 million dollars and a year and a half without learning half as much.

The United States House Select Committee on Benghazi was chaired  by Republican Trey Gowdy (South Carolina 4th House District), creator of "the new McCarthyism".

I came across two excellent information dumps today, which sort out the lies.
At HuffPost, dated 10/11/2016, Benghazi Middleman Tied To Unaoil Bribery Scandal, Source Told FBI — “The Benghazi investigation you should actually read.” By Nick Baumann, Nick McKenzie, and Jessica Schulberg.

Another Journal breaks with tradition to endorse Hillary

The recent edition of Foreign Policy, the journal for "insight and analysis into issues of national security and foreign policy", broke a forty year tradition of neutrality to endorse Hillary Clinton for President.

They made an unequivocal assessment about Donald Trump:
" '(That man') is the worst major-party candidate this republic has ever produced."

This publication which specializes in foreign policy issues calls Hillary Clinton " one of the best qualified candidates this country has produced since World War II.
