Page has been targeted before.

we accuse witchAfter several agonizing days, the House Intelligence Committee memo was finally released to the public. President Trump rightfully declassified the document, allowing the American people a chance to learn about the abuses that occurred within the FBI and the Department of Justice.

The President made the courageous decision despite the strenuous objections of Democrats, the media and the FBI. According to the President, the findings are so upsetting that “a lot of people should be ashamed.”

untouchablesIt’s been a bad last few weeks for the nation’s top law enforcement agency.  First, an innocent hostage was shot and killed in a botched raid in Houston by an FBI shooter.  Then the television movie series “Waco,” debuted and revisited the FBI killings of innocent victims in both Ruby Ridge and Waco.  And currently, the Bureau faces charges by members of congress of malfeasance and even interfering in the most recent president election.

jindal trump 3Former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has penned an oped published in the Wall Street Journal yesterday that took a not-to-subtle swipe at Republican President Donald Trump, the Republican Party and of course, the Democrats and President Barack Obama.

Trump's State of the ONION not very APPEALING

onion stateThe State of the Onion remains unchanged after Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address gets pealed away. The lengthy speech is unlikely to change much in America’s affect, despite the calls for unity and bipartisanship that have been lacking throughout nearly all of Trump’s first year in office.

conspirators roaredIf there’s a take-away from Michael Wolff’s book, “Fire and Fury,” it has to be that Donald Trump did not collude with Russia to win the 2016 election. Since none of Trump’s motivations appears to have been particularly altruistic, it’s clear, if Wolff’s theory is correct, that this unlikely candidate would have sought help from any power, foreign or domestic, to win anything. He’d rather have lost, like king in “The Mouse that Roared” who declared war on America in the belief that a loss would trigger foreign aid sufficient to bail out his tiny, broke kingdom.
