Remember me?  I'm the guy who, in the middle of the Khan imbroglio in August '16, predicted that Trump would win the presidency.  And I did so again after the release of the Billy Bush tapes in October. Well, I'm here to make another prediction:  In the last four days, the Democrats just forfeited their shot at winning the House or the Senate in 2018.

Ken Cuccinelli: Trump is exonerated by Mueller indictment of Russians

Special counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment Friday of 13 Russian individuals and 3 businesses effectively exonerated President Trump and his campaign from the media’s allegations of “collusion” with the Russians in the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump: Have Education Department Mandate Active Shooter Protocols

I’m a small government guy, however, it’s sadly apparent that the United States of America is paralyzed with political indecision over something the State of Israel figured out more than 40 years ago: all schools should have mandated security features and active shooter protocols. The horrific scene in Parkland, and the upsetting videos broadcast from the school during the shooting, should be the final straw.  The kids should not have been hiding and screaming, they should...

Floridians Tell Politicians Who Do The NRA’s Bidding Their Time Is Up

Something powerful is happening in Florida. For the third straight day following a school shooting that left 17 dead and more than a dozen injured, community members gathered to demand gun control. And for those politicians who are in the pocket of the National Rifle Association, the people had another message: Be scared.

Trump Makes America Great Again For Foreign Workers — At Mar-A-Lago

While President Donald Trump rails at American companies that hire foreign workers, he’s not following his own advice. Of 144 openings at three of his properties, including Mar-a-Lago, only a single one went to an American, according to Department of Labor records. The rest went to seasonal foreign workers in the U.S. on special visas requested by the Trump Organization, reports Vox. An examination of filings by the Trump Organization with the Labor Department from 2016 to 2017 reveals that a...
