    A University of Wisconsin-La Crosse police dispatcher claims she was fired for supporting Donald Trump. In a letter sent Tuesday to the UW System Board of Regents, Kimberly Dearman's lawyer, Lee Fehr of Onalaska, said his client had been fired for political speech in support of President Donald Trump's travel ban. Fehr's letter said the comments were spurred by an email UW-L Chancellor Joe Gow sent to faculty, students and staff rebuking the move by the president. Gow denied Dearman was fired for her politics. "I want to be very clear," Gow said. "We would never let someone go based...

    As President Trump is just now discovering, the actual governance of the US has very little to do with him, and is in fact, designed to purposely frustrate changes in policy and pursue its own agenda. There has been a lot of recent talk about the “Deep State”, but the real enemy of change has been in place for a very long time, and has always answered to those outside of the State. How the Illusion Works The smoke and mirrors we are being asked to believe, is that a President, when elected, takes over the reins of power from...

    ASHINGTON – It might seem outrageous and unprecedented that a newly departed president would devote himself to overthrowing his successor, but that is exactly what a mountain of growing evidence appears to indicate. “Obama’s goal, according to a close family friend, is to oust Trump from the presidency either by forcing his resignation or through his impeachment,” the Daily Mail reported Wednesday. The source also told the paper that Obama loathes President Trump and considers his presidency illegitimate. “Obama is dismayed at the way Trump is tearing down his legacy – Obamacare, the social safety net and the welcome mat...

    There NEVER has been, or will ever be a good reason for Treason. Sabotage is sabotage. Lies are lies. Betrayal is betrayal. Barack Obama’s apparent sabotage of the 2016 presidential election is not only a shocking wake up call to unbridled political ambition, but puts on full display the ongoing battle between Good and Evil. While some 63 million people were focused on keeping America safe from the lies and corruption of Hillary Clinton during a hard-fought election campaign, here was a sitting president hard at work to overturn the outcome should it stray out of progressive left control,

    Iger told THR in June that "a lot of people have urged me to seek political office," and now he's considering the prodding for him to lead the Democratic ticket. Disney CEO Bob Iger already runs the world's most successful media company. But could his impeccable mogul credentials carry him to the Oval Office? Sources say Iger has told friends he is considering their nudges that he make a run for president in 2020 as a Democrat. There’s a hitch. Any political future would hinge on Iger, 66, finding a Disney successor, of course. (Complicating matters, in February, he told...

    It’s only been a few weeks since former President Barack Obama left the White House, but presidential historians have already placed him on the right side of history. AC-SPAN survey of 91 historians and presidential experts ranked the Democrat the 12th best leader in United States presidential history — just ahead of James Monroe and right behind Woodrow Wilson. Another Illinois politician, former President Abraham Lincoln, claimed the survey’s top spot. He’s followed closely by George Washington, with Franklin D. Roosevelt rounding out the top three.

    Want to talk to President Donald Trump? Just walk right into his Oval Office. That's a privilege Politico has found many of Trump's advisers have under a Trump administration and it's pretty unusual. For example, the 'Apprentice' reality star turned adviser, Omarosa Manigault, doesn't need to set an appointment to see her boss. Neither does chief strategist Steve Bannon, senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, chief of staff Reince Priebus, son-in-law Jared Kushner or counselor Kellyanne Conway. That kind of accessibility to the president is a sharp break from the past administration. Former President Obama required aides and senior officials to...

Why in hell is he campaigning for president of Mexico on American soil? That's the elephant in the room.

    The Electoral College formalized Donald Trump's election victory on Monday despite protests around the country to encourage GOP electors to abandon the Republican. The president-elect easily racked up the 270 electoral votes needed to send him to the White House. Interest in the normally mundane voting process spiked this year as opposition to Trump continues to fester, fueled by Clinton's success in capturing over 2.6 million more votes than her Republican opponent.

    What a remarkably moving thing to see an old Marine declaring his gratitude for the privilege of having fought one last battle on behalf of a man he feels might yet be among this country’s greatest presidents in a video that is now understandably going viral. It does not get much more American than this – and thank you for your service, Dr. Larry Lindsey. “…It is you people the good people of America for whom I cry, my loved ones and my friends, and the sacrifices they continue to make in this fight for our country. Dying is the...

    Democrats who are having trouble getting out of the first stage of grief — denial — aren't being helped by the fact that, now that all the votes are counted, Hillary Clinton's lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%. To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton's advantage all but disappears. As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton's overall margin looks large and impressive, it is due...

    Because Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the Electoral College, there are now voices clamoring for America to abandon the Electoral College and become a pure democracy with the winner of the presidential election by popular vote. Not a good idea. In fact it is a very bad idea. Americans should remember that the United States is not a democracy — it is a federated form of government where the role of the federal government is limited to delegated powers by the Founders. This action was then solidified by the 10th Amendment that declares “The powers not delegated...

    Looking for Mythological ReaganRonald Reagan’s legacy looms large over American conservatives. Everyone wants to be the new Ronald Reagan and Republican candidates can’t stop declaring his name with bated breath. Regrettably for conservatives, the visage of Reagan they broadcast has little to do with the actual president but epitomizes a caricature forged in Republican media circles and punditry for the last 20 years. This Mythological Reagan is evoked as the tough, principled, provocative conservative who spoke truth in an uncompromising fashion. A man hated by liberals and leftists while he celebrated America’s greatness at home and abroad; a leader who...
