Any Politician Who Doesn't Release Their Full Medical Records After a Heart Attack Has Something To Hide.
Sen. Bernie Sanders said Tuesday he will not release any more medical records during his presidential bid, arguing he’s already released sufficient information to quell concerns about his health.
Sanders, the current front-runner for the Democratic nomination, has faced questions about his health since he suffered a heart attack in October. He insisted at a CNN town hall Tuesday night that the release of three letters from his doctors at the end of December declaring him healthy were sufficient disclosures.

Imagine when Hillary got pneumonia in 2016 she actually had a heart attack, had her team lie about it for days, then promised to release her medical records, but didn't. There would have been editorials nationwide calling for her to drop out of the race. - Victoria Brownworth

Defying Barr’s pleas, the president renewed his public attacks on law enforcement Tuesday, denouncing the prosecutors, judge and jury forewoman in the case of his longtime friend Roger Stone and defending his convicted former adviser Michael Flynn against Trump’s own Justice Department.

Time To Deflate Photo

This photo of my backyard this morning doesn't do justice to the beautiful sky and crescent moon. But I tried.



  1. Nice. I've no idea how you saw the scene but I'll send you my version of how I imagine it.

  2. I can see the beauty! I've taken plenty of twilight and night sky photos. I see the colors, and the moon is actually pretty well resolved. :-)
