Trump, Putin, and Turning Foes to Friends

Captain America cover
Trump is being accused of committing treason by having a friendly meeting with Putin. The - what has become normal - political screams are out now that Trump has met with Putin. One thing I find interesting, and a bid odd, is the lament that Trump didn't "stand up to Putin". This is odd on two fronts to me. First is the fact that they actually don't know if that is true or not. Much of their me...

ICE Arrest Makes Me Wonder if Sentimentality Drives Anti-Immigrant Passions

Man arrested by ICE in photo with his granddaughter
The crux of this story is this: A man - in the US for decades but who is not a citizen - was arrested by ICE and is being held for deportation. He was targeted because he had a misdemeanor domestic violence conviction. He was arrested out in front of his house. Now he is being held pending a deportation hearing. That's the basics - but that's not all there is to the story. The man's arre...

Saudi Crown Prince: Palestinians should take what the U.S. offers

Saudi Crown Prince
As odd as it may seem to many "peace" seems to be the word that we could use to describe the Trump presidency. Syria aside of course, though he claims his actions there are so designed. We have peace on the table between North and South Korea which, I believe is largely due to China not wanting a destabilized region. Now, in similar fashion we have Saudi Arabia stepping in to the Israel/Palestine ...

One Korea – Credit Goes to Trump

The credit goes to Trump
I've read a lot of discussion about the talks between North and South Korea. So many people don't want to give any credit to president Trump. I have two thoughts on that. First is that the reason they don't is because they don't like him. Not because he didn't do anything good but because they can't admit that he did. There are some people who won't ever give him credit. He could cure cancer and...

Trump Signs Terrible Bad Terrible Omnibus Spending Bill

Blither Blither spending bill
As a general rule I dislike listening to politicians drone on about their policies and motivations for them. They always sound empty to me. Today, as Trump explained why he signed the Omnibus Spending Bill he reached new lows of political emptiness. He was unprepared, inarticulate, and contradicted himself. Oh, he gave his reason - military spending. https://youtu.be/1rBoaLCRH1s

Trump and his s**t hole comment

Crap hole
It was reported that, during a meeting, Trump called certain countries S**T Holes. He says that he didn't say that. It wasn't recorded and wasn't on the record as far as we currently know. This is just someone who was in the meeting reporting that this comment was said. Trump wanted to know why we are so intent on importing people from these countries. If he did say that, he might be undiplomatic,...

Trump is dismantling Obama’s legacy and I’m Glad

Good Bye Obama
I see Obama's presidency not only as an abysmal failure, but as something that actually harmed our country. I'm not shy about saying I would be pleased if enough of his "work" was rolled back to make it seem as if he never existed. Trump is slowly, but surely, moving in that direction. "Brick by brick, the demolition job has begun: since taking office less than a year ago, Donald Trump has launch...

Trump signs executive order to bypass Congress and change ObamaCare 

This is fresh, rather breaking news. I haven't been able to process it fully yet. I've seen some jumping for joy, some patting on the back, some Rand Paul is great, and Good Trump headlines from liberty groups. For me, it's too early to congratulate anyone. As I ponder it, I think this is much ado about nothing. Though another article (New York Times) says that supporters of the current law sa...

James Comey is a Blight on Law Enforcement and Justice

Modern Demons
I've made no secret of the fact that I feel Comey should have been fired. In fact, he never should have been allowed to stay after the Hillary Clinton press conference in which he read off a list of her crimes. No matter how one feels about Clinton, this was an unheard of thing for a law enforcement agency to do. Imagine if your local police chief went on television and read off that they fou...

Two-thirds of Americans worry Trump will drag U.S. into a new war

From whence come wars and fightings among you?
There aren't many wars left to fight. America is spread out pretty much all over the world. We could go to war with Russia and we could go to war with North Korea. There are a few nations we aren't fighting after all. We haven't exactly been picky it seems. America has been at war, active, bombs and boots kind of war, for the last 37 years or so. A Bush went into Iraq, A Clinton bombed: Somali...

Should America Police the World?

If America Exists
The use of force in the protection of others is something I actually believe in. I think we can defend ourselves and others. People in Syria are being attacked. We are using force, ostensibly in protection of an offended party. Right now, sitting, literally in my armchair, I think we should not intervene. Might I change my mind in the future? I might. But below is the line of reasoning I've gone t...

Trump Executive Order Frees us from Climate Change Shackles

Trump signing EO on climate controls
Trump moves decisively to wipe out Obama’s climate-change record - The Washington Post President Trump on Tuesday took the most significant step yet in obliterating his predecessor’s environmental record, instructing federal regulators to rewrite key rules curbing U.S. carbon emissions. The sweeping executive order — which the president signed with great fanfare in the Environmental Protecti...

What Exactly is Fake News? Maybe Not What You Think

Doctors agree, Clinton going to die
What Exactly is Fake News? Maybe Not What You Think NBC news wrote a piece (linked below) about how Webster's Dictionary had to correct Kellyanne Conway's definition of feminism. They actually wrote a story about that. That was news. That's what they chose to cover. That's one main reason why people don't trust the media anymore. "It's difficult for me to call myself a feminist in a classic s...

Trump’s Immigration Order: What’s Really in it?

If you don't let just anyone in your door why should a nation?
This article has to by necessity include information about immigration, but what it's really about is the intellectual dishonesty of the left. They simply say things that aren't true in order to prove their point. They ignore logic and common sense. They ignore history. It doesn't matter if you are for or against Trump or his order, at least articulate your point of view from facts. How many have ...
