‘Dealmaker’ Trump flip-flops on dreamers

On his way to the White House, President Donald Trump forgot all he knows about negotiating. Author of best-selling "The Art of the Deal," President Trump reneged on his important campaign promise to end the deferred action for childhood arrivals amnesty without getting a whit in return.

Bad hair wars between Trump and North Korea

Enterprising entrepreneurs out there might want to invest in a fleet of tractor backhoes and partial ownership of a limestone quarry, because it's starting to look like bunker-digging time in America. The threat of nuclear war is spiking like the needle of a meat thermometer on a lava-flow.

Flying the unfriendly skies

Trump’s Endless Campaign

"No one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it," observed George Orwell in his prescient novel "1984." However, until Donald Trump came along most U.S. presidents were at least subtle about their eagerness to retain power-especially during the first 100 days.

Trump’s broken promise could break another promise

Smoke has been billowing skyward from the Trumpster fire for nearly 100 days - I know, it feels more like 100 weeks - and his refusal to release his tax returns is only stoking the flames.

Have you talked to your children about marijuana?

Although I got vicarious pleasure from the American Dope Growers Union spoof on "Saturday Night Live" in 1977, my curiosity has never led me to sample marijuana, and I hope my preemptive talks with my 13-year-old son have persuaded him to confine HIS curiosity to more productive inquiries.

Trump trashes sustainability twice in two weeks

I knew when Donald J. Trump was elected president of the United States that he might prove a long-awaited savior to those disillusioned, abandoned Americans who support enforcement of our nation's immigration laws and, more generally, yearn for an immigration policy that actually serves the interests of rank-and-file Americans over those of illegal immigrants and their enablers, apologists and open-borders zealots.
