I am so engrossed in the ongoing political shenanigans that often times I do not realize how little important information trickles down to everyday people.

I am the first one to admit that I have a bias against Donald Trump. Ok, so maybe a very deep bias. As such, there is an inherent distortion in my worldview when it comes to Trump. That said, I can’t for the life of me get over the Twilight Zone of a world where… Read More The Trump Twilight Zone

Buried behind the impeachment news is a lawsuit that was filed by journalists against the Trump administration. Likely, “fake news” is on the minds of some readers, but this is also about something else – the First Amendment, and U.S.-México intelligence coordination.

It is extremely poignant that it is immigrants that are delivering the death blows to Donald Trump’s defense against impeachment.
