President Donald Trump, in a speech before the United Nations, called out those who smuggle illegals into America -- coyotes, as they're colloquially known -- as "vicious" individuals, bent on taking advantage both financially and sexually of the poor and downtrodden. And now he must be impeached.

Michael Savage's 'hot dog summit' with Trump

- The Washington Times

Move over, beer summit. This president, Donald Trump, doesn't drink. What he does do is eat hot dogs -- and aboard Air Force One, he shared one with none other than talk radio icon Michael Savage. As far as memories go, that's a pretty cool one.

Democrats, on Brett Kavanaugh, trying to frighten future judicial picks

- The Washington Times

Here's a question: If President Donald Trump nominated you to the U.S. Supreme Court -- or to any high-ranking judicial office, for that matter -- would you seize the moment and say yes? After watching the takedown of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, both Part One and now, the emerging Part Two, no doubt for many, the answer would be no thanks.
