This topic was first visited in a February 15, 2019 blog.  However, since the Democratic campaign has failed to offer any substance on it and given the Republicans’ stone silence, it is time for a deeper look.  Be forewarned, however, that information sources[1] on thi...

Fact-checkers note that the US president has lied publicly well over 10,000 times.  It is ironic that this same fellow invented the term, “fake news” – a reprehensible concept that has given the world’s despots new cover while they lie even more unabashedly.  It is bad...

Although most of his departments lack permanent leaders and he has no coherent policies, the one thing Donald Trump is accomplishing is judge appointments, including two to the Supreme Court.  He and Mitch McConnell are a well-oiled machine on this matter.  There are t...

US health care costs $3.5 Trillion/yr, according to the US government Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.  Medicare’s budget is $580 Billion/yr (Medicare spending was $705 Billion in 2017 meaning the difference must be out of pocket), covering 44 Million people (accordi...
