Impeachment

Politics continue to move downward at a rapid rate with no end to how low it can go. Democrats in Congress and liberals, in general, have spent the last two years promising to prove that the Trump campaign somehow colluded with Russian to swing the election in his favor and cause Hillary Clinton to lose.… Continue reading Impeachment

The New Leadership of the Democrats in the House

This week the House was embroiled in the controversy over Cong. Omar and her blatantly anti-Semitic statements. It was so bad that a resolution was drafted condemning anti-Semitism and was designed to show that Democrats are not anti-Israel or anti-Semitic. But that would mean taking on one of the freshman firebrands that have dominated the… Continue reading The New Leadership of the Democrats in the House

Odd and Ends in the Political Arena Today

Hillary Clinton Is she in or is she out? I have maintained that Hillary Clinton still feels she won the last elections and is entitled to run again. She covets the Presidency and this week she seemed to say that she would not run only to walk that comment back a day later and make it clear… Continue reading Odd and Ends in the Political Arena Today

If It Is Not One Investigation, It’s Another One

It appears that the Democrats in the House are going full bore on investigating anything and everything related to Trump. It matters not that what they are investigating has something to do with either government or policies of the government. What they want to do is investigate the person and his entire life, putting everything… Continue reading If It Is Not One Investigation, It’s Another One

She’s Making a List, Checking it Twice

I read today where Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is upset with many of her colleagues in the Democrat caucus because they had the nerve to vote the way they felt their constituents would want them to vote. This vote came on a procedural motion in the House which at the end allows the minority party to offer… Continue reading She’s Making a List, Checking it Twice

Trump in Vietnam Summit and on Trial in Congress

Yesterday President Donald Trump was the main character in two unfolding dramas, one of which he was present and another taking place thousands of miles away in Washington DC. In the nation’s capital the House Government Affairs Committee brought Michael Cohen before them to testify on what he knew about the President. They were going… Continue reading Trump in Vietnam Summit and on Trial in Congress

Racism and Politics – Why We Are Not Making Progress

The Oscars were held last night, and Green Book won for best picture. This caused Spike Lee to be enraged and he has vehemently denounced the selection. I guess he felt his picture should have won. I don’t really watch the Oscars because it has become a platform for a bunch of big ego people… Continue reading Racism and Politics – Why We Are Not Making Progress

Jussie Smollett and Racial Politics

It seems that we are recycling news these days and people don’t seem to learn from the past. In 2016 a young Muslim woman claimed she was attacked by three white men on a subway platform. She said they tried to remove her headscarf, called her a terrorist and shouted “Donald Trump” at her. This… Continue reading Jussie Smollett and Racial Politics

A Real National Crisis

This past week the President declared a National Emergency in order to find funding for building barriers on the southern border of the United States. I have already written that I think he will lose this battle in court, but I want to emphasize that I agree there is a crisis on the border as… Continue reading A Real National Crisis

A National Emergency That the President Will Lose On

The President declared a National Emergency in order to get the necessary funding for building a barrier on the border.  The compromise agreed to by the Congress only provided him $1.375B.  The President signed the bill to avoid another partial government shutdown, one that he would have been blamed for if he failed to sign,… Continue reading A National Emergency That the President Will Lose On
