    Am I losing my mind? Donald Trump gives me the creeps at times. He offends my Christianity. His persona turns me off. He can be all other the map in terms of consistent principles. But there is something inside of me that wants him to kick the stuffing out of the powers that be. Even though I am a Cruz man I could see myself voting for the guy. Am I losing my mind?

Among the advertised topics of discussion: “Millennials: How Much Do They Matter and What Do They Want?”That was the cover story. As revealed by the Huffington Post, Sea Island last weekend was host to a secret conclave...

    According to the venerable Encyclopdia Britannica, the word cabal is defined as a private organization or party engaged in secret intrigues. In the wake of Donald Trump's near clean sweep of the March 8 GOP primaries and caucus, the anti-Trump secret meeting recently held in Georgia certainly fits the definition. In what may be the most curious presidential race in the history of the United States, Anusha Asif of Tech News Today reports on Mar. 8, 2016, many of the Congressional leadership of the Republican Party have met on March 7 with a who's who of liberal billionaires behind closed...

    SEA ISLAND, Ga. - President Bush (news - web sites) and other world leaders showcased a new harmony on Iraq (news - web sites) on Tuesday as they gathered for their annual summit, but prickly issues remained over both Iraq and Bush's plan to promote democracy across the wider Middle East.
