The #NeverTrump “Conservatives” Never Fail to Astonish Me With their Intentional Ignorance

We see it almost every day in the media and on social platforms.

Can the Government “Judge Shop” to Obtain a Wire-tap Warrant from the FISA Court?

Judge shopping. We see it all the time. Liberals have found that if they want to “resist” President Trump on any front, a good place to stop is Hawaii Federal Judge Derrick Watson.

January 17, 2019

I think I’ll start up occasionally the “Ten Minutes with the President” series. Perhaps a bit “Walter Mitty” but let’s go with it. And who knows? Maybe the President will start reading THIS blog!
