I woke up to the above amazing headline in the UK’s Telegraph.

Read the article for a blow by blow real-time account of the amazing events.

It will of course take some time for commentators to fully analyze the implications.

The Clintons have an enormous amount of money which they can turn to negative or dirty campaigning. But the bottom line for Clinton is that voters worry that she’s out of touch with ordinary people.

Again Donald Trump has considerable destructive firepower. Watch for Trump going independent and splitting the GOP.

This is worth a read because the US is about to approve a billion Dollar shipment of smart-bombs to Saudi Arabia.

There’s an important open question here:

If Saudi Arabia is supporting ISIS and ISIS is America’s enemy, why is the US selling arms to Saudi Arabia?
