Trump Stymied in Effort to Decrease Illegal Border Crossings

Illegal migration across the Mexican border this year is little different than it was under President Obama and, compared to some years, may even be higher, according to data released by the Department of Homeland Security’s United States Customs and Border Protection agency. In August, the last month for which complete data are available, there… Continue Reading

Video || Arizona Democratic Senate Candidate Bashes Her Own State

Repeatedly. Looks to me like Jeff Flake’s Arizona Senate seat will stay in the Republican column, given that Republican candidate Rep. Martha McSally is a patriotic former combat pilot and her opponent, Democratic Rep. Krysten Sinema, doesn’t seem to like Arizona. Democratic chances of winning the Senate are starting to look like slim to none.… Continue Reading

Trump to Ask Cabinet Members to Cut 5 Percent From Their Budget

President Trump at a Cabinet meeting this morning is asking each Cabinet member to delete 5 percent from their budget. I’ll say two thing about this. 1.

Saudi Arabia and Khashoggi: I’ve Got it, Let’s Not Have a Foreign Policy!

So it seems pretty clear that the Saudis murdered Jamal Khashoggi. And now even sensible people, like Lindsey Graham, are calling for us to take strong measures the Saudis. It always amazes me how selective people’s moral outrage can be, and how it’s often it is limited to what they happen to see. Here, for… Continue Reading

National Congress of American Indians: DNA Testing Can’t Prove Heritage

What’s more, she’s lied in the past, listing herself simply as “Native American,” which is unequivocally untrue. But according to the nation’s largest and oldest… Continue Reading

Jimmy Carter is Fundraising for the Democrats

Here’s an email I just got from Jimmah: Allow me to be blunt: I’m asking for $1 before the final federal fundraising deadline in 24 hours to elect a Democratic House. I’ve watched in shock these past few weeks as this Administration shamelessly degraded the dignity of our nation’s highest court and intentionally belittled women.… Continue Reading

Lindsey Graham to Take DNA Test to See If He’s More Native American Than Warren

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is a lot of fun. He has a certain joie de vivre, sense of humor, and mischievousness that I enjoy, even if sometimes he’s too moderate for my taste. Now he’s decided to take a blood test to see if one of his relatives slept with a Native American way back.… Continue Reading
