Hey Dems: Stop saying 'thoughts and prayers do nothing,' it's ignorant and offensive

For a party that claims to want to reach out and appeal to the faith-based voters who abandoned them in 2016 and voted for Donald Trump, the Democrats have done a pretty good job offending and mocking those same Americans for offering prayers to the victims of this week's mass shooting in Broward County, FL.

Don't forget: It's Native Americans who are most annoyed at Elizabeth Warren's claims

As amusing as it is to see the whitest looking woman in American continue to claim her Native American heritage, it's important to remember that it is actual Native Americans, actual members of the Cherokee Nation, who are most annoyed at the Massachusetts Senator's appropriation of their heritage and identity.

The Michael Flynn guilty plea stinks to high-heaven

Former Trump National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn pled guilty to providing false information to FBI agent in December and the more we learn about the events leading up to that plea, the more it stinks to high-heaven. Published February 15, 2018

Joe Manchin sure looks desperate

Once a self-styled "maverick" Manchin rode into office promising to be his own man and fighting against his own party to defend West Virginians. Today he will cozy up to anyone if it makes for a good photo opportunity and he begs his pals in the senate to not say mean things about him so he can keep his seat and live on his boat on the Potomac.

The sliming of Carter Page

Pundits and defenders of the Obama Justice Department took to social media and the airwaves over the weekend to inform the world that Carter Page was the target of a FBI Russian espionage investigation in 2014, but he wasn't. In fact, it appears as though Page was an FBI informant in that case. He helped the federal government put Russian spies in jail. Published February 5, 2018

On the dossier, did FBI have lower standards than the media?

One of the more disconcerting revelations from the long-anticipated FISA memo released by the House Intelligence Committee Friday was that the FBI had barely begun a verification process of the Russian dossier when they used it to justify a FISA surveillance warrant on Carter Paige. Meanwhile the media refused to publish the dossier allegations because they could not be verified. Published February 5, 2018
