Trump’s Hollow Words

On the afternoon of January 20, 2017 Donald Trump took the oath of office of the Presidency of the United States of America. Those words were his first lies in office and it hasn’t improved since. The oath reads in part, “…defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same…” In the following paragraphs I will cite several occasions where Trump has failed. My examples are far from a complete listing. Let’s explore. Continue reading Trump’s Hollow Words

Trump’s impeachment (and that is not my favorite theory) seems to be almost every liberal’s dream. Be careful what you wish for. Let’s explore. Continue reading In The Bullpen

To Survive America Will Have To Be Great Again

I made a wise decision earlier this week when I decided not to “allocate” Wednesday’s article to the election results. My articles are normally published at 1am EST for the benefit of my European readers and American early birds. The results were still up in the air at 1am yesterday morning. Some dust has settled and I’d like to explore my initial impressions and reactions with you. Come along. Continue reading To Survive America Will Have To Be Great Again
