Mon, 05/22/2017 - 12:33

By most accounts, the President’s first major trip as Commander-in-Chief has been a success. First visiting with the Suaudis, and now continuing on to meet with Israeli leaders, the President is driving the theme of alliances and resolve in combating extremism and terrorism in the region.

Relax, Trump Will Survive the Special Counsel Investigation

Fri, 05/19/2017 - 12:40

If there were a sequel to the movie, The Big Labowski, it would be called, The Bigly Trump. “The dude abides,” and he’ll keep going, just as he always has. Even if he were impeached and convicted, he’d say it was the best thing that ever happened—and he’d find a way to make another, personal […]

Even GOP Now Hinting at Trump Impeachment

Thu, 05/18/2017 - 13:47

Democrats have been throwing around the words “Watergate” and “Impeachment” for weeks. Few Independents have taken the talk seriously, and of course, Republicans have laughed, so the claims have remained “loose talk.” Even the Watergate scandal did not become a problem for Richard Nixon until Republicans, most notably, Howard Baker, began to ask questions, too. […]

Wed, 05/17/2017 - 12:30

Another twist to the story from earlier this week regarding whether President Trump shared classified intelligence with Russian diplomats during a recent meeting.

Looking Deeper in the Polls, Here’s the Good News for Trump

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 13:22

You’d think the end was near and the President will be handing in a resignation letter soon depending on which media outlet you watch. Sure, his approval numbers are low, but they’ve been low since he took office. Also, he’s getting battered over the firing of FBI Director James Comey, even from within his own […]

Trump Called “Idiot” By Poll Respondents

Mon, 05/15/2017 - 12:26

The big story these days is Donald Trump’s firing of FBI head James Comey. But the conservative Washington Examiner notes that a new poll shows that Trump’s approval rating was already diving before the event. Considering Trump’s reactive nature, the poll, itself, may have been one impetus for the firing. Trump has had historically low […]

Why Did Trump Fire Comey? That is the Question

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 14:37

In our last article, we said we’d have to wait for the polls to see how the public is reacting to Donald Trump’s firing of FBI chief James Comey. Well, the first poll has hit, and it doesn’t look good for Mr. Trump. Meanwhile, Republicans are trying to defend Trump by saying the action was […]

White House Offers Conflicting Messages on Comey Firing

Fri, 05/12/2017 - 13:03

Day by day, we’re learning more about the seeming disconnect between the explanations offered by the White House communications team, an the explanations offered from the President himself. There seemingly is no good explanation for why administration officials are saying Comey was fired based on a recommendation by Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, and […]

The Public Hated Comey, So Why is Trump in Trouble?

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 17:12

Republicans are already writing their political obituary in 2018 and basically crediting the Comey firing for ending Trump’s presidency. As is often the case, however, the view from inside the beltway and outside the beltway can be very, very different. Take this recent poll from March of this year which found that one of the […]

Democrats Revive Impeachment Threat After Comey Firing

Thu, 05/11/2017 - 14:24

The firing of F.B.I. Director James Comey is still reverberating the walls of Washington, DC. Democrats believe this is a prime opening to attack the administration on the grounds that Comey was fired because he was getting too close to Trump in the Russia investigation. Republicans are scoffing at that notion (well, most of them) […]

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson Might Run for President in 2020

Wed, 05/10/2017 - 17:30

A couple years ago I would have laughed this story off as just another celebrity deluding themselves into thinking they could waltz in and run for president. Well … that happened … so I guess we should pay attention this time around when “The Rock” says he’s considering a run for the Oval Office. The […]

Tue, 05/09/2017 - 12:45

We touched on this topic briefly yesterday in a post about how to tell which politicians may be planning a presidential run in the future.

Mon, 05/08/2017 - 18:32

There are some clear tell-tale signs when politicians are gearing up to run for president. Most notable, they’ll probably start loving states they never cared about – like Iowa and New Hampshire. Furthermore, they may release a book which outlines their beliefs, background, and childhood upbringing. Then look for magazine features in publications that cater […]
