Trending: Fuel for Thought

Right now the GOP is flailing and failing to get anything done – even with majorities in the House and Senate, and the promise of President Trump’s approval.

On Thursday President Trump may have delivered the most controversial press conference in more than a generation, and depending on what branch of the media you side with… you probably have an opinion about how it went. For their part the mainstream media thinks the conference was a complete failure, but the friendlier conservative media thought it was a home run of Ruthian proportions.

Even with President Trump getting all of the bad press and the media giving the Democrat Party free rein to attack the GOP, the Democrat Party seems stuck in neutral and in for a long slog.

It’s odd how controversial Michael Flynn’s time as National Security Advisor was, considering the media seemingly had NO PROBLEM with Susan Rice lying to them about Benghazi and doing everything she could to distract America from the Obama scandals. If the mainstream media can’t recognize their own hypocrisy, then they are beyond saving.

It is distressing how our own government was to blame for the many leaks that ended up felling Michael Flynn during his first month on the job. The failure of the intelligence community is more proof that “the center does not hold.”

Has the 21st Century been a “distressing” era for the American people?

Hillary Clinton was seen having dinner with the woman that plays her on Saturday Night Live. Surprised? You shouldn’t be.

How sports writing became a liberal profession.

Theologian, public intellectual and “Grandfather” of the Acton Institute, Michal Novak has passed away at 84 years old.

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
