Happy New Year’s Day!

Conservative columnist Michael Barone has long been skeptical of President Trump’s policies, programs, and behavior… but looking back at 2017 he wonders if maybe he wasn’t wrong about the method behind Trump’s “madness.”

Barone is right, there is ample reason for Americans to take Trump seriously and for wondering how seriously history might look back at the Trump era.

A year in the Trump-Russia hysteria and why the media seems so infatuated with a story that has so little substance.

10 important Gubernatorial races to keep an eye on as 2018 progresses.

2018 holds a lot of questions for the Russia-USA relationship, particularly in regards to our problems in Syria.

The Hill argues that it’s surprising just how many of Obama’s Russia policies have remained intact during the first year of Trump. Meanwhile, back in the real world, most people understand that Russia is our #1 geopolitical foe, so of course President Trump is going to be tough on them.

The protests in Iran continue to ebb and flow and the government there seems very worried. So why isn’t the mainstream media covering the protests more closely? Perhaps the problem isn’t the media isn’t covering the protests, it’s that they “can’t” cover them well?

The current coverage of the protests sweeping across Iran is bad by design. The Obama administration used the press to mislead the American public in order to win the president’s signature foreign policy initiative. The bill for that program of systematic misinformation is still coming in, and the price is much higher than anyone could have imagined, including more than 500,000 dead in Syria and an American press incapable of understanding, never mind reporting, that this death toll was part of Obama’s quid pro quo for the nuclear deal.

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) believes that we need a new special counsel (yes, another one). This special counsel would focus on the Trump Dossier.

There was a lot more on Anthony Weiner (and Huma Abedin’s) laptop than just porn.

2017 has been a very bad year for the climate change fanatics as the weather has acted in opposition of all of their theories for almost the entire year.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

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.
