Dear POTUS Trump,

As recently outlined by the socialist-leaning David Brooks of the New York Times - i.e. the leader of the "Resistance" - you are all but officially exonerated of all collusion and obstruction charges. With the federal government leaking faster than a popped balloon, if there was hard evidence of a crime we would have seen ...

Trump’s Travel Ban Heads to the SCOTUS

By default, President Trump leads with an extreme position in order to draw attention to a more subtle underlying problem - an opening "bid" within a broader negotiating framework those sick and tired of "political correctness" find refreshing.

The Cost of Climate Change: It’s The Economy, Stupid

And based on earlier reports, more than likely renewed Never Trumper hyperventilation will commence upon the announcement of America's exit. An exit from the PCA is smack in line with the Bannon/Breitbart "Economic Nationalist" ...

President Trump’s Still-Stubborn Approval Rating

On May 18 I said here that President Trump was teetering on the edge of a political cliff, and that if obstruction of justice was proved beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump should go - period, end of story. And in less than a week, the "evidence" appears to continue to mount against him. But ...
