In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Video || Liberal Has Cursing Match with Alex Jones, Roger Stone

This is pretty funny. In the media row section of the convention, where people broadcast their little TV and radio shows, Young Turks host Cenk Uygur got into it with Trump adviser Roger Stone and conservative InfoWars website and radio show host Alex Jones.

Mike Pence demonstrated last night why he is on the ticket. Pence is not known as the most colorful conservative out there, but last night he delivered an outstanding speech with professionalism and passion that show a politician at the top of his game.

Not that I think Melania should be prosecuted — in the press or the courts — this most likely fell like rotted fruit out of the campaign, as I wrote. Gov. Chris Christie has gone from a man widely

Melaniagate: Trump Campaign Incompetent or Infiltrated

It’s clear, the Trump campaign denials notwithstanding, that portions of Melania Trump’s speech Monday night to the Republican convention were lifted directly from Michelle Obama’s 2008 speech to the Democratic convention. The question is, why? The answer is probably that Donald Trump is running his campaign on the cheap, and he’s getting what he’s paying for. I don’t rule out that Mrs. Trump, inexperienced in
