Ted Cruz suffering from Trump sized anvil tied to his neck

Enabling treason isn’t playing well as a campaign theme for Texas republicans. Since last week, when U.S. Rep.

Ted Cruz, a wave of Texas Democrats running for U.S. House seats […]

Open Thread For July 17: Russian Roulette

Filed in Delaware, Featured, National by on July 17, 2018 4 Comments

Established Fact: The US President is under the control of Russia

There is no reasonable explanation for the simple facts we see other than that Russia has some kind of hold over President Trump. Either by fear or avarice or some other species of control that exceeds the capacity of my imagination Russia exerts a control over President Trump. So the US is in grave danger. […]

Fox’s Newt Gingrich is a pineapple headed idiot. Nixon’s lickspittle. Ben Stein, says FBI/Russia investigation is like “some movie about an old Southern town where the law enforcement people are members of the Ku Klux Klan”.
