Nothing matters anymore.

Evidence. Facts. Credible allegations. Actual arrests and guilty pleas.

Nope. Negative. Lies. Fake news.

This is America’s motto in 2017: We believe what we want to believe, and dammit, that’s our right.

Which is true, I guess.

Stupid, but true.

Over the last few weeks, I have appeared on countless national TV news shows, as outlets from around the globe seek to get a better understanding of this magical state. They want to understand our voting habits, our beliefs, our feelings.

He also added a veiled accusation that this publication, the Alabama Political Reporter, was lying about the SBI closing criminal investigations.

In his Op-Ed, no doubt under Gov. Robert Bentley’s direction, Stabler wrote, “These sensationalized lies from Collier – and other unnamed sources – all occurred during the timeframe of his tenure as Secretary, and under his direct supervision.”

Republicans in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have been hearing troubling testimony about the Obama Administration response to the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi and about a possible coverup conducted by the administration. Congressman Martha Roby (R) from Montgomery said that there are still too many questions about Benghazi.

Representative Roby said on Facebook, “The American people won’t tolerate being lied to. There are still too many questions and not enough answers surrounding what happened in Benghazi last September. I applaud the brave individuals who stepped forward yesterday to share their story with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. To be clear, I do not intend to let up on this issue until we get some straight answers from the Obama administration. Again, the American people won’t tolerate being lied to, and it’s Congress’s responsibility to ensure the truth comes out.”
