Kathleen Saucier discusses her son’s presidential pardon

It was my pleasure to welcome back to our show, Kathleen Saucier, the mother of Kristian Saucier, who finally, after more than a year and a half of being made a public scapegoat for taking selfies on-board a nuclear submarine, serving time in prison, on house arrest and with a felony prison record, was given… Continue reading Kathleen Saucier discusses her son’s presidential pardon

SOTU 2018 drinking game

The State of the Union is tonight. This will be President Trump's first. Considering 90% of all media stories (print, radio and television) were negative for our 45th president, it's amazing to see how much was accomplished in his first year. The confirmation of Judge Gorsuch, pulling the US out of bad trade deals, opening… Continue reading SOTU 2018 drinking game

What keeps getting left out about the budget breakdown

When you've lived through several modern American presidencies and all of the mid-term battles for Congress, it's easy to hear the same, recycled talking points used over and over again. Perhaps some of the more egregious (and successful) happen when "the government is running out of money." Even that phrase is laughable, given we have… Continue reading What keeps getting left out about the budget breakdown

What does it mean to act presidential?

OMG, he's tweeting again! He called himself a genius. He thinks he's the smartest person in the room. He won't stop poking at Kim Jong Un. He is going to start a war. He is a paranoid idiot who eats McDonald's in bed to avoid the risk of being poisoned. He is incapable of understanding… Continue reading What does it mean to act presidential?

Strong, admirable and unflappable and the Left hates her

It's been awhile since I've had the chance to put my thoughts down on current events. I spend more time on Twitter of late because I have not had the free time I would like to write more. I know, excuses, excuses. Over the last few weeks, I considered writing (again) about why President Trump… Continue reading Strong, admirable and unflappable and the Left hates her

Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Well, we thought we knew what all the kneeling was about. I mean, we were told it was about their First Amendment right to protest injustice, police violence and the unfairness experienced by some in our country. We were told it's a quiet display to show solidarity with those who have suffered social inequities. But,… Continue reading Trendy protests lead to choice between patriotism or NFL

Trump tweets once again; what could he be doing instead?

I honestly do not wake up each morning looking for reasons to defend President Trump's Twitter behavior. I already wrote a piece a few months back where I explained why I believe his tweets were about more than just being crass or silly or unpresidential. By now, I had hoped his tweet-storms would have been… Continue reading Trump tweets once again; what could he be doing instead?

Interview with New Zealand radio host, Tim Fookes

It was my absolute pleasure to welcome Tim Fookes to my show. As a fellow talk show host, it's always fun to talk shop. However, the nice twist comes from the fact he is from New Zealand and so it was interesting to get his take on American politics and how their media tends to… Continue reading Interview with New Zealand radio host, Tim Fookes

Comey was fired for one reason (and Russia wasn’t it)

So, in less than 24 hours, social media has begun the tandem eruption and meltdown at the news that President Trump sent a letter of termination to James Comey, Director of the FBI. The first thing I did at hearing this was to follow the paper trail to see why this happened and how many… Continue reading Comey was fired for one reason (and Russia wasn’t it)
