We’re witnessing a perfect storm of sorts as various elements of leftist policy and ideology converge into an historical moment in which being accused of sexual harassment/abuse means being guilty.  Being guilty, in turn, means the immediate loss of one’s career, one’s reputation, and one’s livelihood.

President Trump has kicked Obama’s unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) back to Congress and stated that he will extend his initial six month deadline if Congress fails to act.

While there doesn’t appear to be much (any?) movement on this in either the House or the Senate, the Congressional Budget...

Today, December 16th, is the anniversary of the Boston Tea Party, a response to a series of tyrannical actions taken by the distant King George III.  Although often downplayed as a fevered response to a single piece of legislation, the Tea Act, the Boston Tea Party represented an act of defiance...

Apparently, some obscure Representative no one has ever heard of mused about whether or not President Trump will fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller next week, and the entire #Resistance freaked out.  They are hastily organizing spontaneous protests should Trump indeed fire Mueller, and Twitter is abuzz with their frenzied outrage...
