Republican Steve King is sticking by President Donald Trump, even though he does not agree with Trump making deals with the Democrats on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). If you ask me, I think more people should follow in King’s footsteps. Lets not write off our president just yet. King said, “I’m going to stick …

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan think that the proposed bipartisan deal that is being discussed to protect DACA immigrants will be hard for Democrats to swallow. He said that those who are deeply opposed to Tump will need to “stomach” a Trump win on Immigration. A compromise to shield immigrants brought to the U.S. …

Surprise! Not so surprised though….Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John “Songbird” McCain has backed a bill to block the military’s transgender ban. McCain is not new to the world of pretending he is a Republican. Although he operates under the party, he often votes on bills that are not in our best interests. For example, …

Ted Cruz has a message about tax, and it’s that a flat tax is what’s best for America. On Thursday, he told Fox Business, “A single flat tax that’s fair and uniform for everyone. It’s a big standard deduction and then everyone pays the same simple rate because I think there’s power in bold simplicity.” …

If you do something wrong, and someone knows about it, what are you doing to do about that person? You are probably going to try to keep them close so that you can keep an eye on them, right? You want to make sure you are keeping them happy so that they do not “tell” …

House Speaker Paul Ryan, or as I like to call him RINO Ryan, has spoken out about the issues with Deferred Action Child for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and deporting ‘DREAMERS’. He seems to think that deporting the DACA recipients are “not in our nation’s interest.” He wants congress to find a legislative fix for the 800,000 …

President Donald Trump is set to ‘absolutely’ sign a congressional resolution to condemn the violence portrayed by white supremacists. Congress has been urging him to speak out against the hate groups…..makes me wonder if he will also sign one regarding Antifa as well. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Trump will “absolutely” approve …

My wife and I are always looking for good films to watch. We’ve come across quite a few recently. The most recent is the 2015 film Michiel de Ruyter, called The Admiral in the English version. It’s based on the life of Dutch admiral Michiel Adriaenszoon de Ruyter (1607–1676). De Ruyter was “one of the most skilled admirals in history, most …

Are we looking at an alliance between President Donald Trump and the Democrats? Yes. No. Maybe…..it’s complicated. Trump seems to have joined forced with both Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Schumer and Pelosi have been hardcore Trump haters since the beginning, so this is a surprising development. The only thing …

Someone may need to break out the tin foil hats for Rep. Maxine Waters. She thinks there are people out to kill her, with right-wing media Breitbart being part of “them.” She lumps people on the right in with white nationalists and neo-nazis…..which we aren’t. The alt-right does NOT represent Conservatives. Waters woefully relayed, , …

DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, is an absolutely horribly structured immigration policy that Obama’s administration established. It allowed children brought to the United Stated illegally to obtain a work permit and be deferred from deportation. It did not exactly help the 800,000 people in the program, and only encourages people to continue dragging …

The swamp is thick with this one. Bruce Bartlett served as a Treasury official under President George H. W. Bush and domestic policy adviser to President Ronald Reagan. Bartlett shared on his Facebook page that “100%” of President Donald Trump supporters are “racists.” Why would he say this? I suspect that he has not been invited to …
