President Trump is running the country the way he wants to. His latest triumph? The Trump Government.

Facebook, the social media behemoth, has announced that it will ban anyone urging people not to vote. Is this legal?

She's still basking in her glory moment at the Democratic Party's mess of a presidential debate when she took aim at fellow candidate Joe Biden and disabled him. Never mind that her weapon was busing--Biden on the wrong side of it, supporting state policies, and Harris, a child caught up in a totally insufficient response to remedying apartheid education in America.

Harris's single jab at Biden was strategic and decisive; it may topple Biden from his perch.  But it also proved that Harris is a practitioner of dirty politics.

Retired Wall Street banker turned financial investigator Charles Ortel, who has been  coursing us through the highly irregular operations of the labyrinthine Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, says several foreign governments that donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the "charity " still don't know where their money went and are ready to take  legal action.

Ortel says that the evidence he has uncovered so far suggests the foundation is "the largest unprosecuted  charity fraud in U.S. history.”  


Is there any doubt that President Trump and his administration are out of control? His  vow to "obliterate" Iran over its downing last week of a U.S. spy  drone flying in what Iranian claimed was its territory was yet another example of Trump's hot-headed, knee-jerk approach to foreign policy.

President Donald Trump wowed supporters last night in Orlando as he formally announced he'll run again in 2020 to advance the "movement" he launched in 2016. Trump has reason to boast; he has, after all, redefined American politics and reversed the fortunes of the Democrats. Will he do it again?
