Another Trump Administration official has heard his famous catchphrase: “You’re fired!” Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin was the last major holdover from the Obama Administration, kept on and promoted by Trump because of his outspoken criticism of the shocking VA scandals that had led to veterans dying on waiting lists for care while the officials responsible covered their rears and kept their jobs.
I’d like to take a break from the news to wish you and your family a happy and blessed Good Friday, Passover and Easter. In fact, I’d love to take a break from the news to do that, but the “news” just keeps intruding on religious faith.
The Trump Administration’s decision to include a question about being a US citizen in the 2020 Census is being denounced by liberals, especially those from blue states with large numbers of illegal immigrants.
One of the Parkland, Florida, high school anti-gun activists is taking heat for wearing a Cuban flag patch on her jacket.
If you’re going to devote your life to a cause, you’d think that at some point, you’d sit down at the computer for half an hour and do a little research to learn the most basic facts about it.
Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens wrote an editorial for the New York Times, claiming that the Second Amendment is outdated and should be repealed.
It’s amazing how much overlap there is in several stories going on right now. For example, while special counsel Robert Mueller’s team continues to investigate alleged but so-far-unsupported ties between the 2016 Trump campaign and “Russia Russia Russia,” Congress is examining alleged and very-much-supported ties between the Clintons and Russia as seen in the unfortunate (for us) Uranium One deal.
Some states have either passed or are considering bans on abortion solely because a pre-natal test indicates that the baby may have Down syndrome.
Last week, when the Dow lost over 700 points on one day and 400 the next, largely over fears of a trade war with China over President Trump’ new tariffs, I warned you that...
Early Sunday evening, I thought I heard a wet plopping sound coming from my TV. Turns out it was just “60 Minutes’” reputation for journalistic integrity taking a nosedive into a giant pit of mud.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took out full page ads in major Sunday newspapers (I’ll let the irony of that sink in for a while…Okay, ready to continue?) to apologize over the recent scandal involving unauthorized data gathering.
Hillary Clinton’s recent remarks in India, in which she blamed her Presidential loss in 2016 on Trump voters being racist and sexist, and on women obeying their husbands and voting against her, rightly generated so much angry backlash that Democrats up for reelection in red states are trying to build a “big, beautiful wall”...between them and Hillary.
Here is yet another reason why we don’t allow people to serve as lawmakers until they are at least 25 (and one hopes, have taken Logic 101 class).
Yesterday, President Trump first threatened to veto that horrific $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, then reluctantly signed it, saying he had to do it because of the necessary military spending increase, but warning that it’s the last such bill he’ll ever sign.
There’s another shake-up at the White House, with news that President Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMaster, will be replaced next month by James Bolton.
If there’s one sure way for Congressional Republicans to tell whether or not they should support a bill, it’s to look at the reactions to it from Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.
President Trump hastily called an early Friday afternoon press conference to announce that, yes, he is signing the “omnibus” spending bill and, NO, he is never signing such a bill again.
This story is so clueless, it could only come from the intellectuals at NPR. It’s a shocking report that illegal immigration activists who speak out at public rallies about being in the US illegally are being “retaliated” against by ICE and deported.
Hillary Clinton’s claim that women who didn’t vote for her were told not to by their husbands elicited plenty of heated reactions online, including some from powerful women who didn’t need a man to tell them to be royally ticked off.
This is not a rerun: A teenage male whom authorities knew to be a potential threat has attacked a group of people in Florida. But it’s not getting as much media attention as you might expect, maybe because it doesn’t fit the current preferred media narrative.
Wednesday, just one month after the tragic school shooting in Parkland, Florida, the House passed a bipartisan bill called the STOP (Students, Teachers, Officers Prevention) School Violence Act.
After all the hoopla, the special election for Pennsylvania's 18th District House seat ended with neither side able to declare full victory (Democrat Conor Lamb tried early on, but then, as Hillary Clinton taught us, not actually winning is no impediment to Democrats declaring themselves the winner).
Today, there is a special election for the 18th Congressional District in Pennsylvania that’s probably been accorded far more national importance than it should.
That Democratic “youth dream ticket” of Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren might not come true – or maybe it will.
