OBAMA’S MISSED CHANCE THAT CREATED TRUMP…

January 16th, 2017

I voted for Barack Hussein Obama in 2008, but not in 2012.

MEET KATRINA PIERSON, TRUMP’S LIAR-IN-CHIEF…

August 5th, 2016

Could attacking the family of fallen veteran, Army Captain Humayun Saqib Muazzam Khan, who gave his life in the defense of his country on 8 June 2005, be the bridge too far for Donald Trump? Maybe.

HA, HA…! EAT THIS SENATOR MITCH MCCONNELL…

March 30th, 2016

I seriously hope that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is having a bad week following the Supreme Court’s four-to-four decision in Friedrichs v.
