One Texas state representative is reportedly being provided protection by the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) following a scuffle on the floor of the Texas House of Representatives, which reportedly began when State Rep. Matt Rinaldi called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in response to disruptive demonstrators at the Texas State Capitol Monday.
The demonstrators were opposed to SB 4, a sanctuary cities ban, already passed by the Texas Legislature and signed into law.
Without a firm ideological foundation, the president can be persuaded to violate and ignore campaign promises in favor of pragmatic pressures.
Andrew McCabe's decision not to recuse himself from the Clinton e-mail investigation is coming back to bite him, and might end his FBI career in the process.
It’s hard to know if it’s more delusion or deception, but the media are again blaming President Trump for violence, this time after a Republican congressional candidate got physical with a reporter. Of course, the media’s accusation is much like Planned Parenthood or the MS-13 gang blaming George Zimmerman for our nation’s diminishing respect for life.
As expected, Trump's budget for Fiscal Year 2018 is what skeptics expected: Growth plus lower taxes is said to balance the budget by 2027 — though much of it is based on hope and gimmicks.
Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein appointed a special counsel Wednesday to investigate alleged connections between Trump and Russia. The special counsel — former FBI director Robert S.

It goes without saying that most television networks are interested in making money. That is why television shows that do not garner enough viewership are cancelled. Presumably then, if a television show did, in fact, achieve good ratings, it would be considered an asset by the network and renewed season after season. Such was not the case with Tim Allen’s television sitcom Last Man Standing, a show that features a conservative, Christian father with traditional family values who has no qualms about expressing his discontent with the Left. It is for this reason that ABC’s recent cancellation of this popular sitcom is considered to be political and has provoked petitions and boycotts against the network.
