President Obama’s Farewell Address

Editor: I would think that by now we are well aware of President Obama’s opinion of himself and his place in history as bring the greatest President this country has ever had. At least as he sees himself. For a large percentage of the population, we are breathing a sigh of relief that we have

Martial Law

Editor: It looks like some delusional liberals have started a petition through change.org to have Obama declare martial law to block the Trump presidency.

When will the fat lady sing?

Editor: As I write this (just before noon on Monday, Dec. 19,) members of the electoral college are casting their votes. By the time you read this, it will all be over. However, the official votes won’t be counted until Jan. 6. But some states will live stream their votes, and other states or electors

It ain’t over til the Fat Lady sings

Editor: One would think that after the failed attempt to overturn Donald Trump’s president-elect status with the recount effort, all would finally come to a closure. Well, that is just not the case.
