…Friday, Feb. 15, 2019, the president announced that he would be officially declaring an emergency on the border, along with signing a woefully inadequate spending bill that provides about 1.4 billion for the wall. This will be challenged in court, as the president noted, but it needed to be done anyway, to help secure some wall funding, especially since he received anemic support from the timid Republicans in the first two years of his term.
Much attention has been showered upon the first proposed bill introduced by new Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez popularly known as the “Green New Deal.” There are many flaws in this ‘plan’ that have been judiciously pointed out by capable commentators on every type of media platform.

The day has obtained the lofty national status of a three-day holiday, despite the fact that King’s actual birth date is January 15th, 1929. In consideration of the day, I am indulging in a bit of a thought experiment. Consider what it might be like today if MLK Jr. had not been assassinated that […]
A recent L.A. Times article revealed the growing acceptance of anti-Semitism by Leftists. The gist of the piece was that someone could be anti-Semitic and yet still be a good person.
