Interactive Constitution app

Interactive Constitution app

The free Interactive Constitution app presents the full text of the U.S. Constitution and features essays by leading scholars that detail areas of agreement and disagreement across a range of philosophical and legal perspectives. Created by the National Constitution Center in partnership with the American Constitution Society and the Federalist Society, this nonpartisan resource is featured by the College Board in its Advanced Placement history and government courses. The Interactive Constitution was made possible by a grant from the John Templeton Foundation. To use the Interactive Constitution, just hit the "Explore It" button on its opening screen. Then you can: Select the "Articles" and "Amendments" tabs on the next screen to read the part of the Constitution that interests you. For the first 15 Amendments, you can read the annotated text of each amendment, along with "Common Interpretations" - joint statements by leading scholars detailing areas of agreement - and "Matters of Debate," individual statements by those same scholars detailing discussing areas of disagreement, along with the annotated text of each amendment. For Amendments 16-27, you can read the full annotated text, plus interpretations from the Annenberg Classroom, a national leader in resources for civic education. For the Articles I-VII of the U.S. Constitution, you can read the full text of each article by sections, with annotations from some of the nation’s leading scholars and from the Annenberg Classroom. The "About The Constitution" section contains a series of white papers that provide overarching background on the Constitution, its history, and how it should be interpreted and applied.

BleachBit: Wipe your computer like Hillary

BleachBit: Wipe your computer like Hillary

As you may recall, Hillary Clinton, with a coy smile, responded to her missing email situation by questioning what investigators meant when they ask her about wiping her server. Her response was, 'wipe' like with a cloth or something? Well Hillary, not so funny. No, what they meant was by using BleachBit, which is exactly what happened. Of course, 'over-controlling' Hillary claims she knew nothing of the action performed under her watch. That's scary! But wishy-washy politicians aside, BleachBit is a Hillary-proven tool that according to South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy on Fox News, 'so even God couldn’t read them.' BleachBit claims:

  • BleachBit quickly frees disk space and tirelessly guards your privacy. Free cache, delete cookies, clear Internet history, shred temporary files, delete logs, and discard junk you didn't know was there. Designed for Linux and Windows systems, it wipes clean a thousand applications including Firefox, Internet Explorer, Adobe Flash, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari,and more. Beyond simply deleting files, BleachBit includes advanced features such as shredding files to prevent recovery, wiping free disk space to hide traces of files deleted by other applications, and vacuuming Firefox to make it faster. Better than free, BleachBit is open source.

If it is good enough to foil the FBI and continue a run for the presidency then it's good enough for us. You can't beat an unofficial, unsolicited endorsement like that. Download BleachBit now and wipe those family-related emails forever.
