Fact-Checkers Of Trump’s Orlando Speech Show AOC-Level Ineptitude

Rod Thomson A PolitiFact fact-check of President Trump’s campaign launch last week in Orlando that was run in newspapers nationwide went horribly, embarrassingly, laughably wrong on the one count in which they ruled Trump was “wrong.” PolitiFact did their usual number after Trump’s speech, supposedly fact-checking the President. In it, there are assumptions made that […]

Trump Presidency Proving It Is A One-Time Only Paradigm Shift

Rod Thomson Enjoy it while you can. Or weather it, depending on your Trumpian disposition. The undeniable reality is that President Donald Trump is doing what no other politician could do. Indeed, the very reality of some of his most off-putting, “unpresidential,” unconventional methods are exactly what are making him so effective. And what probably […]

Conservative, Pro-American Policies Are Winning

Rod Thomson President Trump’s approval ratings are at their highest level ever, and Republicans have totally erased the 15-point lead in the generic congressional ballot Democrats held just two months ago.

The Beginning of the End of the Progressive Democratic Party?

Rod Thomson The government shutdown by Democrats was a desperation move. And they lost. Even with mostly friendly media cover, they were in such an untenable position that Sen.

America’s Most Amazing Year — Not Fake News Edition

Rod Thomson Every newspaper and TV network will be doing their year-in-review issues around now. Considering they will primarily be re-hashing their own partisan attacks and intentional undermining of a duly elected American president, they’re not worth consuming. But America and the American people actually had a much, much better year than the deeply discredited […]
