    Thanks to Del. Kaye Kory for sending me this; I strongly agree! I’d add that anyone who thought it was a good idea to jam a bike/pedestrian right next to car and trucks on I-66 seriously needs to have their heads examined.

    I received this email message from a long-time, trusted friend. The individual who sent it to him admitted there was no way to vet the document or its authenticity as a message from President Trump. One thing, however, is certain—it’s the sort of fix Donald Trump would propose and heartily endorse. Ed. Please scroll down to read this important message about NO TENURE and NO Pension for Congressman under the Congressional Reform Act of 2017. URGENT that all read and this is circulated. I'm asking everyone to forward this email to a min of 20 people, & to ask each...

    FULL TITLE: 'We need to instill fear of overdosing': Ohio city councilman proposes BANNING opioid addicts from getting Narcan after their second overdose Fed up with the social and fiscal toll of opiod addictions, a city councilman in Ohio has proposed cutting off overdose victims from receiving live-saving Narcan after their second overdose. Councilman Dan Picard made the half-serious proposal at a June 20 meeting of the Middletown, Ohio city council, after hearing the city was set to spend ten times its annual budget on Narcan. The city of roughly 49,000 is on pace to spend $100,000 on the life-saving...
  • Who’s Afraid of Mexicans?

    A blogger asked if we were scared of Mexicans. The post was a YouTube video clip of The President of the California State Senate, Kevin DeLeon caught participating in a “Brown Power” event, chased and shouted down by Trump supporters. I'm not scared of Mexicans. I find them an inordinate percentage of those few I love and trust among my own circle of friends and acquaintances. I'm scared of Legislators who find it impossible to represent all the people under the greatest Constitutional Republic the world has ever seen. They use their positions for power and money (No race exclusions...

    The time for talk is over. The time for mindless platitudes is over! The time for action is way past due. God forgive me. I was enjoying a rare respite from my work yesterday, when my senses were suddenly assaulted with the news of yet another terrorist slaughter — this time of at least 22, mostly young people and little children, at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. Here we go again! How many families, how many children, how many brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers need to die in senseless mass murders before the political class will...

    Anyone serving as an official of a government entity, whether it be state, county, city, has to take an oath of office to uphold the Constitution and the laws governing that government entity. Interfering with the ability of ICE to conduct its duties under Federal immigration is probably a violation of that oath of office which is most likely an act of perjury for which the offender should be arrested by U.S. Marshals and hauled off to the slammer in handcuffs on TV, of course!!!!

    Trump Wasn't Shown Up by the Health Care Rejection; The simpletons who are gloating that the rejection of the Health Care Repeal and Replace legislation shows that Trump is no longer a master at the Art of the Deal seem to overlook one simple fact. Every deal with a chance of closing has to have two parties with open minds who WANT a deal. Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton got things done because they had negotiating partners. The Democrats until the end refused to even consider a deal on the Trump-Ryan health care repeal and replace bill, which required the...

    Angelina Jolie has made a strong defense of the United Nations, saying the world body, as “imperfect” as it is, needs reform but also support. The American actress and special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency decried a “rising tide of nationalism masquerading as populism, and the re-emergence of policies encouraging fear and hatred of others” during a speech at the U.N. in Geneva on Wednesday. Saying she was speaking as a “proud American” and “an internationalist,” Jolie said some politicians were elected “partly on the basis of dismissing international institutions and agreements.”

    As liberals are exposed in all their fury, more Americans will come to realize that the voters made the right decision in electing Donald Trump as our nation’s 45th President. Across the country, angry mobs of protesters are flooding town hall meetings of GOP Senators and Representatives. The liberal media is enjoying the spectacle and emphasizing the supposed grassroots anger of average Americans. Among many issues, the attendees have been screaming about Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and her reform agenda, phony “Russian” connections to the administration, efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, plans to dismantle onerous EPA regulations and the...

    Are we the people so jaded by politicians that we are surprised when they keep their word? Over the past few weeks, a plethora of Americans have been appalled with the President for deporting illegal immigrants with criminal records. Mainstream media outlets are now speculating as to how far the deportations will go. It should be obvious. Before the 45th President’s Inauguration, he announced his plans to deport two to three million illegal immigrants with criminal records. The time has now come. The genuine shock regarding the President’s actions indicates a deep seated issue in American politics. Halting illegal immigration...

    Instead of cutting excessive spending areas, anticipate Gov. Jerry Brown will propose another emergency "one time tax increase" ballot initiative, which will turn into a permanent tax increase, followed by annual proposed tax increases. California Legislators and Gov. Jerry Brown think their job is to stay in power, and that bills to further their leftist agenda are the vehicles. The Oroville Dam spillway breakage is proof of this. While Gov. Jerry Brown and legislative Democrats have prioritized illegal aliens, refugee, inmate sex change operations, building houses for the homeless, transgender bathrooms, climate change awareness, and hiring Eric Holder to undermine...

    If we're going to make Congress and all of America great again, we need to continue working to drain that swamp of entrenched politicians Cold war was a term that took up common usage beginning in 1950s America to describe the ongoing conflict between the U.S and the Soviet Union. While not engaged in direct military action, the two nations were diametrically opposed to each other diplomatically, in proxy wars and in economic matters. An attitude of war toward each other but restrained, in this case by mutual assured destruction if they came to blows. Now America is in a...

    President Trump and the Republican Congress are going to do a lot and will likely act quickly and decisively to help the economy become strong, make the borders secure and the immigration laws effective, protect us from terrorists and rogue nations, and improve our education system. It is vitally important, however, to grasp at the outset that Washington cannot work. Federal solutions always fail. The best thing federal politicians can do is to get Washington out of the lives of ordinary Americans, their businesses, and their communities. This must happen fast, because Washington is crawling with folks who will work...

    It is only a matter of time before these politicians realize what their inferior subjects think of them. Canada lags behind the U.S. but hopefully it will only be a matter of time Politicians are a strange breed. A trend seen around the world is that of ordinary men and women rising up against their democratically elected leaders. These leaders are seen to be more interested in their own wealth and power than they are in acting in the best interests of those they were elected to lead. This can be seen in the Brexit vote and the election of...

    What the Dakota Access Pipeline Is Really About The standoff isn’t about tribal rights or water, but a White House that ignores the rule of law. Kevin Cramer A little more than two weeks ago, during a confrontation between protesters and law enforcement, an improvised explosive device was detonated on a public bridge in southern North Dakota. That was simply the latest manifestation of the “prayerful” and “peaceful” protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Escalating tensions were temporarily defused Sunday when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, at the direction of the Obama administration, announced it would refuse to grant...

    Details coming in December 15 press conference Politically this is probably a smart move, and in the short term it might make him a better president. There are precedents it sets that I’m not sure I like, but we’ll get to that. Here are the basics: President-elect Donald J. Trump tweeted Wednesday morning that he would soon leave his “great business in total” to focus on the presidency, a response to growing worries over the businessman-in-chief’s conflicts of interest around the globe.

    "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free" Generations of little kids embarking upon practicing deceit were warned by mothers catching them out and admonished, “The truth will out”. “The truth always comes out in the wash,” as my own Mother used to put it. In the generation of the present day the truth has become more illusive than ever.

    It was disappointing, but not surprising, to learn from the Indianapolis Business Journal (Oct. 10-16) that both John Gregg and Eric Holcomb endorse public-private partnerships (P3s). These candidates for governor are experienced in the ways of our Indiana government. Mr. Gregg has served at the highest level of the legislature while Mr. Holcomb is our Lt. Governor. P3s are agreements between governments (national, state, or local) with private companies to assume control, but not ownership, of public assets. Hoosiers know them in the form of the new bridge over the Ohio River, connecting the east end of Louisville with Clark...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, Long Island (WABC) -- Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano and his wife were arrested Thursday morning in a bribery and kickback scheme that also netted Oyster Bay's town supervisor. Mangano and his wife, Linda, walked out of his Bethpage home without handcuffs just before 7 a.m. Thursday and got into waiting vehicles.
