Don’t Be Distracted By Bannon’s Firing

The news that Steve Bannon has been fired by Donald Trump is being heralded by pundits and the media as a major turning point for a White House that has been in a constant state of chaos since January 20. Bannon’s alt-right influence, we’re told, was a cancer on the presidency and was undermining what

A Letter To Christians Who Voted for Trump

Look, I understand why frustrated blue-collar workers in the Rust-Belt states voted for Trump. When you’ve been screwed over by both major political parties as much as they have, you tend to do irrational things like vote for someone who has about as much in common with you as you would with a sheep dog.

Even David Duke Knows Who and What You Are, Mr. President

Let me be as blunt as I can here, Mr. President. You are a coward. There, I said it.

People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.” – Chuck Schumer I’ll be honest, I’ve given Schumer a lot
