The Elitist Party vs. the American Party

Ted Van Dyk was Humphrey's assistant in his ill-fated 1968 campaign, and policy and platform director for George McGovern’s campaign. A decade ago, formally left the party and began commentating in the Wall Street Journal.

He came close to expressing what happened to Democrats, who lost the working class.

Politico story explains why Trump's tweets kick butt

President Trump mastered the diversion. While some may say that his tweets distract from his positive news, I say the press will never ever praise him but only continue to try to bury him. His tweets and other tricks instead dictate what the press will blast him on.

Meanwhile, the erasure of the Obama administration continues unabated by any political discussion.

A subtle hit job by NPR

How do you portray the Trump administration as unethical?

Let NPR show the way.

McCain embodies what is wrong with DC

Two weeks ago, John McCain underwent minor eye surgery. Remember? That is what the media said it was.

Then it was brain surgery to remove a tumor.

Then it was McCain rising from his death bed to fly to Washington to salvage the Republican plan to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Trump ends debate on sanctuary cities

As readers may know, Attorney General Jeff Sessions took steps to halt payments of Byrne Justice Assistance grants (federal money given to local law enforcement agencies) to sanctuary cities.

NYT pays the price of feuding with The Donald

Feuding with Donald Trump never ends well, as the New York Times has discovered over the past year.

Think of Amazon as Sears

The Amazon Washington Post asked the other day, "Why is Trump more worried about coal miners than department store employees?"

The irony is Amazon -- the Sugar Daddy of the financial failure known as the Washington Post -- is why retailers are closing their doors.

Wiretapped nation

When President Trump complained the Obama administration wiretapped him, the press mocked him -- even though the New York Times had reported that very thing, even saying in a headline Obama wiretapped Trump.

But as suspected, he was not alone. The Obama administration spied on everyone in the name of national security.

LOL Trump got Schumer to love Jeff Sessions

Chuck Schumer just warned President Trump not to appoint a replacement for Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

Schumer said: "I am not confident in Senator Sessions’ ability to be a defender of the rights of all Americans, or to serve as an independent check on the incoming administration."

Oh wait, that was what Schumer said in February when he voted against Jeff Sessions as attorney general.
