President Trump Hits A Home Run in His Message to Joint Members of Congress

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

President Donald Trump’s message to joint members of Congress was powerful, sober, straightforward and fruitful. Many of his themes were familiar. However, his theme of unity and pledge to deliver on his promises made during the election played well. The most emotional moment came when Trump praised Carryn Owens, the widow of Senior Chief William “Ryan” Owens who died in a raid in Yemen. The crowd cheered the highly emotional Ms. Owens for several minutes.  The moment has been a political hot point since Owens’ father Bill Owens and Sen. John McCain criticized the president’s choice to execute the mission. But Trump […]

Kellyanne Conway’s Critics Focus on the Smallest and Irrelevant Things

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Kellyanne Conway, advisor to President Trump, cannot catch a break from him her anti-trump detractors. Photos were taken of her taking pictures of leaders of historically black colleges while kneeling on an Oval Office couch that sparked debate over whether she was demonstrating a lack of respect for the office. Ms. Conway was using her smartphone to take the pictures in response to the President’s request. The room was extremely crowded, and she was able to perch on the couch to shoot the pictures of the participants and the President. Her critics on Twitter made no mention of President Obama’s […]

Conservative British Politician, Nigel Farge, Joins Trump’s Criticism of the Media

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Nigel Paul Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party from 2006 to 2009 and again from 2010 to 2016, had dinner with President Trump this week.  Farage spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference earlier this week and said that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union had begun a movement that would spread across the globe.  Farage earlier backed the president’s recent criticisms of the media. He told Fox News the media is “losing this battle big time.” About the media, he said, “They are simply not prepared to accept that Brexit happened, that Trump happened. They kind […]

Threats to Impeach President Trump are the Disingenuous Words of Liberals Who Cannot Come to Terms With his Victory

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Rep. Keith Ellison (Dem) of Minnesota, a candidate for the head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), recently said there are reasonable grounds for bringing impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Article I § 2 of the United States Constitution gives the House of Representatives the sole power to impeach (make formal charges against) and Article I § 3 gives the Senate the sole power to try impeachments. Article II § 4 of the Constitution. Most authorities believe that it would be necessary for the President to have committed an indictable crime before he could be impeached. The ACLU and other […]

The EU is Dead Marine Le Pen Says: She May be Right Statistics Show

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

“The European Union is dead, but it does not know this yet,” Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s far-right National Front, proclaimed recently. She also tweeted: “The EU is dead. It has failed on all fronts. And an experiment that fails to protect us from terrorism should come to an end”. The New York Times adds “in many corners of Europe; there is a growing anxiety that the populist wave cannot be reversed,” and that the union is being “squeezed between revisionist Russia and President Trump’s “America First,” and demoralized by Britain’s shocking vote for Brexit.” France Presidential elections take […]

Idaho Judge’s Order Prohibiting Archaic Fornication Sexual Acts is Wrong

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

When Judge Randy Stoker of Idaho sentenced 19-year-old Cody Herrera following his plea to a crime that prohibits even consensual sex with a 14-year-old (Herrera was 18 at the time of the offense), he told him that he must maintain celibacy during his probationary period. Although Herrera’s acts were illegal based on the age of the victim (the victim was too young to consent legally), the judge added that Herrera could only have sexual relations with someone that he is legally married to (and of age), a throwback to the widely discredited fornication laws that still exist on the books […]

We Urge President Donald Trump to Shine the Spotlight on Gouging Drug Companies: 1,000 Percent Price Hike for Dying or Sick Patients is Too Much

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

We have often written about the gouging practices of drug companies, particularly when individual patients need the medicine to either live at all, or maintain a relatively pain-managed existence. The motive, of course, is pure profit. Academic experts say the “prices of 14 cancer drugs have increased by between 100% and nearly 1,000% over the past five years in the UK. These are all generic drugs where the patent has expired, which means they can be made for little more than the cost of the raw ingredients.” There is little evidence to show that dug companies in the U.S. are […]

Sending Federal Troops to Chicago or Other Large Cities is Not the Answer to Decreasing Homicides and Violence

Written by , Posted in Uncategorized

Chicago’s murder problem cannot be denied—but neither can the distrust that minorities, particularly the young, have towards the Chicago Police Department. Of course, mistrust, minorities, and the police is a real issue in most large cities, but Chicago’s extraordinary homicide rate redirects the national perspective on such violence. So, when President Trump Tweets. “I will send in the Feds” while also quoting statistics mentioned in the Chicago Tribune, a wave of confusion naturally spreads through the city’s political elite. Questions such as “What does he mean—is he talking about sending federal troops to Chicago?” Is he talking about financial aid, […]
