Is Jeff Sessions letting America down?

Is Jeff Sessions letting America down?

Current Affairs, Legal
Katherine Robertson's opinion in the Conservative Review seems to feel that AG Sessions 'cares too much for the country to step down...' yadda yadda yadda. Dripping with honey-filled goo, the writer goes into how President Trump is making a 'big mistake' to even consider replacing is new Attorney General, even though Sessions has done practically nothing of the President's agenda since entering his position. How can we all forget the injustice we face with the Clintons getting away with RICO violations, pay-to-play politics, Russian uranium deals and, of course, the big email server scandal yet to be brought to task? With such a banquet of criminality, one would think Sessions and his colleagues at the DOJ wouldn't have to look far to scrounge up busy work; yet, nothing has even begu...
Anthony Scaramucci Enters Stage Left…

Anthony Scaramucci Enters Stage Left…

Current Affairs, Media, White House News
A new day has dawned in the White House Communications department as a forthright direct boss takes over with stunning candor and forthrightness few press people will be able to shake. For those following business and stock trends on Fox Business, Anthony Scaramucci is no stranger. He has provided talking points and anchored a show on the business network for years; therefore, he's not a complete novice when it comes to the area of communications. During the campaign, President Trump often had Scaramucci as a spokesperson for various shows in order to forward his message to those who weren't fortunate enough to see him in the rally settings and the new Communications Director for the White House, managed to succinctly deliver with consistency. He knows how the news cycle works and ho...
Travel Ban: What’s Next? Family Pets & Neighbors?

Travel Ban: What’s Next? Family Pets & Neighbors?

Corruption, Current Affairs, Legal
Are we going to include pets and neighbors as the next judicial activism snag to thwart President Trump's attempt to keep us safe? It would seem so as the Hawaii judge, Derrick Watson, continues to poke a stick at the travel ban; usurping millions of Americans' desire to not have our country overrun by refugees. Considering his state has failed to obligate itself to take any of the over 50K refugees, it's pretty astounding that he would be hearing any cases that try to stop the ban from occurring. In a recent article on the Washington Times, many malcontents weighed in on why they think the ban is unfair and cruel; however, they're missing one very crucial element, which they would love for all of us to ignore: President Trump has the constitutional right to ban anyone from entering ...
US Senate: Letting Down America for Politics while Lying the Whole Time!

US Senate: Letting Down America for Politics while Lying the Whole Time!

Current Affairs, Government, Issues, Republicans, Senate, White House News
Seven years of nothing but balderdash... For seven years all we've heard is these Senators and Congressmen have yammered on and on about how We the People are not happy about this whole Obamacare debacle pushed on us by the Democrats in 2010. They have made stunning claims that they've Repealed it two times, each being VETOed by the former president, yet now -- now that we've given them both Houses and the White House, they decide to go like a limp biscuit and try to curtail the process -- hence, usurping not only President Trump but us, the American people. They have now perpetrated the worst foil in American history and yes, they are as useless as tits on a boar! Republican Establishment has really done it this time -- after they got everything they claimed they needed in order to re...
Has the State Department Cower to Another Liberal Challenge to the Trump Travel Ban?

Has the State Department Cower to Another Liberal Challenge to the Trump Travel Ban?

Corruption, Current Affairs, International Politics, Legal
It would seem with this new stipulation about family members with people here in the US, it has once again, been bullied into watered down policy at the expense of our safety! American being slid under the political bus is getting old! The travel ban imposed by President Trump's Administration was partially upheld last month by the Supreme Court in spite of the 9th Circuit upholding a nefarious halt issued by the Hawaiian judge Derrick K. Watson - an act of judicial activism rather than being based on case law. The ban was challenged by a state that doesn't even take in refugees from Middle Eastern countries and the judge has close ties with former president Obama; therefore, the dubious ruling was suspect from the very start. In a stunning move clouded with more political truculence...
Senate Hypocrisy & Obamacare

Senate Hypocrisy & Obamacare

Current Affairs, Debates, Government, Republicans, Senate
If you've wondered why they're stalling... because the hypocrisy runneth over! As many of you already know, the Senate is having a difficult time getting all Republicans on board with Obamacare repeal and replace initiatives in spite of it being one of the cornerstones of them getting control of both Houses and the Presidency in 2016. It would seem they would catch this 411 that citizens have never wanted this socialized medicine disaster tried in so many countries with a failing track record, but they remain mute. Last week, we learned that Arizona Senator John McCain had to have brain surgery - even though the media is trying to paint it as just a simple surgery - and it is for a serious condition. Yes, it's a brilliant assumption that any time they cut open your skull to work on y...
Russian Dressing Stories Coming Back to Haunt Democrats?

Russian Dressing Stories Coming Back to Haunt Democrats?

Current Affairs, Democrats, International Politics
We've all heard the rubbish about Russians influencing our last election from the Democrats to the point where most are frankly sick of them. The stories keep getting smaller and smaller as they continue to attempt to create their fabricated ruse to deceive American voters simply because they can't come to grips with their massive election losses. Democrats have lost their power in the public sentiment as they continue to traverse down this road of nothing burgers and nonsensical balderdash - yet, they keep moving forward with their insanity. The question is, why? Do they honestly think Americans are going to jump shark with them? Perhaps the loony toons will but, on the whole, most see through the subterfuge and have now gained a type of apathy towards it all. Peter and the Wolf ring a...
ACLU takes on Wall of Silence in Excessive Force Settlement Cases in Maryland

ACLU takes on Wall of Silence in Excessive Force Settlement Cases in Maryland

Current Affairs, Legal
As many of your already know, my proclivities regarding the ACLU run a mile wide and ten yard deep, but there are always exceptions to every 'rule' - this is one of those times. Over the years, the ACLU has been known for cases against anyone from citizens to cities and states - even federal, which many would see as nuance cases. Crosses out in the public squares during Christmas and other infinitesimal items which leaves many to see the abuse of our court system to forward Liberal agendas, marred in detaching any reference to God in America while letting many references to other religions continue. These apparent abuses have damaged the reputation of the American Civil Liberties Union to many, thus, every time a suit is filed with their involvement, it is assume to be another silly ...
Is Charlie Gard an Argument Against Single Payer System?

Is Charlie Gard an Argument Against Single Payer System?

Current Affairs, Government, Legal
Would you want your child's life or death decided by a court or a death panel? This is exactly what Bernie proposes for your future! In the UK, the Gard family fights for their son's life as bureaucrats who think they know better than his parents, are fighting to end the boy's life and deny him the treatments necessary to give him a chance at a life at all. Would Bernie Sanders pull the plug on an infant? From his statements promoting this kind of death panel; yes, he would. Yet one has to wonder if Bernie could do this to his own child or grandchild -- something Democrats seldom take into account when they push these failed policies on Americans. The Gard family shouldn't have to fight to save their son's life at all. If they were in America, pre-Obamacare, it would be no question t...
Has Comey Crossed The Line This Time?

Has Comey Crossed The Line This Time?

Corruption, Current Affairs, Leaks & Whistleblowers
For someone whose sworn to uphold the rule of Law, former FBI Director James Comey has certainly seem to throw caution to the winds with his hat tricks and bamboozle whistles. In his infamous testimony after being terminated from the Bureau, Comey touted that he leaked information to the New York Times through an emissary. This, while stunning, held all the earmarks that contradict everything he ever said about Julian Assange or Edward Snowden - but also made him look like just another disgruntled ex-employee with proverbial axes to grind. While it's not the best form to can someone while they're out of town, much less having them received notice through a news broadcast they've been unceremoniously fired, the Comey situation was acutely different, given his proximity in DC to ve...
Our President Trump is Huge in Poland

Our President Trump is Huge in Poland

Current Affairs, Inspiring Moments, International Politics, President Trump
Waking up before Dawn, I was fortunate to tune into President Trump's speech in Warsaw. Amazing the sight to behold, hundreds of Polish residents, flying American flags and carrying signs of Trump while screaming "USA! USA! USA!" Certainly more American flags there than I see driving around Salisbury on Independence Day! And the speech -- not a whisper of an apology - not an ounce of disdain towards America or Poland. It was a powerful speech, as most of his are, and it resonated with his audience in a very real, meaningful way. It was stirring, enlightening and uplifting, yet to the point. He admits he will have to entertain doing things like deal with North Korea in a very stern fashion, but the people he was talking to understood the why... so why can't some Americans? It leaves o...
