    Congratulations to every racer, thank you to every volunteer, and biggest kudos to the wonderful towns and villages along the 2000-mile course that make the worldís longest and toughest snowmachine race happen! Extremely tough conditions causing mechanical hardships forced more teams out of the race than reached the checkered flag this year, so total admiration is due all finishers.

    Sarah Palin's name been making the rounds for weeks as a prospective ambassador to Canada, and today the White House suggested that it's not outside the realm of possibility. Palin gave President Trump a shock endorsement last year as the first state, Iowa, prepared to hold its caucus. And she once worked with Canada to construct an oil and gas pipeline in her state. At the White House's daily briefing Wednesday, a reporter asked if Palin was under consideration to represent the United States' interests north of the border.

    President Trump kicked off February by inviting leaders from the black community to the White House to engage in dialogue and hash out solutions. Day one of Black History Month was the perfect time to dive into what he vowed while on the campaign trail: address the needs within communities of color. The ďforgotten man and womanĒ was a recurring Trump theme in the 2016 election. One could make the case that despite the obvious irony, no group was as forgotten during the last eight years as black Americans, many of whom find themselves living in violent Chicago neighborhoods, lacking...

Senator Jim Demitt said ďsheís done a...

    Drill, Baby Drill! American Made Energy Makes America Great Again Permian, ANWR, Prudhoe, Bakkan…. and so much more. NOW is the time to shut off the Saudi oil cartel flow valve and develop our own God-given natural resources. The only excuse not to become energy independent is a political excuse. The inherent link between energy and security, and energy and prosperity, is real and recognized by every American except sketchy politicians and deceived faux environmentalists. We have the resources, we have the technology, we have the manpower. America has the highest environmental and worker safety standards in the world… it’s...

    My entire political worldview was shaped by 2008 and the whole ordeal Governor Palin had endured from then and until now. I was a student at the time she was governor, and by mistake came across a tiny article on the internet (in a non-political context) about the Governor of Alaska giving birth to a baby with Down Syndrome...I remember being so moved. I didn't even know what she looked like! Then I heard in some circles a week before McCain's announcement, that she was being considered for VP and I PRAYED and crossed my fingers it'd be her! (By...

    "Drill, baby, drill!Ē During her bid for vice president in 2008, that was Sarah Palin's crowd-pleasing chant promoting her energy policy. Now the pithy catchphrase Ė and the former Alaska governor herself Ė could make a comeback. News reports say Palin is on President-elect Donald Trump's short list to head the Interior Department. As secretary of the interior, she'd be in charge of overseeing oil drilling, uranium mining and other energy extraction on 500 million acres of public land, including iconic national parks like the Grand Canyon. The pro-mining policies Trump and Palin could be expected to bring to Interior...

    On the day before President-elect Donald Trump came to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Obama, a list of the names of possible Trump cabinet choices and other key jobs was leaked to reporters. This being Washington and all, the list of names is undoubtedly a way to vet these choices in the court of public opinion before spending any political capital defending them. And, revealing the list also creates a sort of buzz around the campaign.

    Conservative columnist George Will is often keen on saying that Barry Goldwater, the man who suffered one of the most catastrophic defeats in American political history, was actually the victor. Will often states that, ďWe ó 27,178,188 of us ó who voted for him in 1964 believe he won, it just took 16 years to count the votes.Ē Will is of course referring to the massive landslide which Ronald Reagan won in 1980, thus leading to a phenomenon known as the ďReagan Revolution.Ē Un-coincidentally, Goldwater gave Reagan his start in politics with the formerís failed presidential campaign. Reagan famously made...
