“Having a daughter does not make a man decent. Having a wife does not make a decent man. Treating people with dignity and respect makes a decent man.” — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, July 23, 2020

This is Bill Conner. His 20-year old daughter passed away. So Bill set out on a 2,600 mile bike journey to clear his mind. But he stopped along the way to meet the young man who received his daughter’s heart. This is the Twitter content I’m here for.🌎❤️

The DOJ has lost its way. But, career people: please stay because America needs you. The country is hungry for honest, competent leadership.

First Mueller Report, then the IG, and now Senate Republicans. There really was a Russian attack in 2016 and those who investigated it were professionals. Facts remain stubborn things.
