White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s first official press conference was quite an improvement from his first appearance before the press. In large part, this was because he discussed issues that are actually important. One issue, something President Trump rarely discussed in his campaign, was fiscal responsibility and wasteful spending. Spicer had this to say regarding President Trump’s position: “There’s been frankly, to some degree, a lack of respect for tax payer dollars in this town for a long time…” I couldn’t agree more with that diagnosis, “a lack of respect for tax payer dollars.” But the qualifier “to some degree” ought to be...Read More

President Donald Trump’s recent executive order on immigration and refugees has been both praised and scorned by people from every corner of the political arena. What’s unfortunate, however, is that the majority of people on both the Right and the Left simply have their facts wrong. The Left’s Fault Where to even start? Rhetoric and politics have complicated yet another issue into an utter cluster… well, you know which suffix I want to use here. First, their catchphrase, #MuslimBan, is dishonest. The order’s language suggests no such permanence, and does prohibit any specific religious group. But we must give protesters a break...Read More
The hardest thing to watch during the Senate’s confirmation hearings (other than Rick Perry eating his own words about the Department of Energy) has been the clip of Senator Bernie Sanders telling Representative Tom Price that our society is not compassionate. “No we are not a compassionate society,” Sanders insisted, as Price began to answer his question about whether or not health care is a right. Sanders continued: In terms of our relationship to poor and working people, our record is worse than virtually any other country on earth. We have the highest rate of childhood poverty of any major...Read More
I believe Senator Jeff Sessions is a decent man. This, of course, seems to be very different from what the mainstream media and the political left believe about him. I don’t agree with Senator Sessions on everything. I didn’t support the candidate Sessions supported, nor do I agree with Sessions’ stances on immigration and criminal justice reform. But I’ve met him in person, and spoken with him about politics and life in Mobile, AL. He appeared to have a genuine interest in my life. From the few minutes we spoke, from what I know of him as a constituent, and from the many reports...Read More
Progressives are continuously working to make the United States more like Europe. During the presidential campaign, Senator Bernie Sanders often cited Scandinavian countries and their socialized governments as an exemplary mold for our country to fill. Filmmaker Michael Moore continues that progressive effort, which Sanders helped to popularize, in his movie Where To Invade Next. Cameras follow Moore to several European countries as he invades, plants the American flag, and declares their great policy ideas borrowed. The countries include Italy, Slovenia, Portugal, France, and others where he observes public policy in action. In Italy, Moore meets with working people to discuss their eight...Read More
