“A majority of Americans see the Democratic Party as ‘just standing against Trump’ rather than presenting a coherent alternative — a stance that may not be enough to get voters to the polls next year.” That above-quoted report about the Democratic Party comes from ABC News. Responding to that report, Juan Williams writes, “That is [...]Show More Summary

How Trump’s White House Compares To ‘The Godfather’

Why Donald Trump’s Self-Inflicted Wounds Will Matter Most In His Eventual Downfall

When the definitive books are written on the Russia Scandal, Donald Trump’s self-inflicted wounds will end up having played an even larger role in preordaining the end to his presidency than his collusion with Russia or war on the hallowed principle that America is a government of laws and not men like himself with monstrous [...]Show More Summary

‘Joi Lansing – A Body To Die For’ – A Love Story

Let The Pardon Fit The Crime

The Narcissist-in-Chief is pondering pardons, including his own. I can think of some self-executing acts he might undertake, and I might suggest one or two if given the chance.

Despite Firm Supporters, First Six Months Suggest A One-Term Presidency Certain

I was recently eating at a restaurant in Middlesex County, New Jersey. Two couples, likely on either side of 70, were sitting at the table in back of me which made it easy to hear their conversation.
