I would like to show my support for Christopher Perricone as mayor of our town.
There have been a lot of questions about why Trump fired James Comey, ever since he announced to NBC’s Lester Holt — incomprehensibly — that it was his decision, citing, by my count, at least a half-dozen different reasons.
With all the tender concern President Trump and Nancy Pelosi have been heaping on “Dreamers” of late, you’d think the media would notice and pepper us with stories about these “incredible kids,” as Trump calls them. Alas, no. Our tedious media drones refuse to provide us with moving human interest stories about the Dreamers.
Remember collusion? The allegation that Donald Trump and his aides coordinated or conspired with Russia to fix the 2016 presidential election is the heart of the Trump-Russia investigation.
The predictable political meltdown is underway over the announcement from Environmental Protection Agency head Scott Pruitt that he intends to roll back vehicle emission and mileage mandates put in place under President Obama.
After some recent conversations – unfortunately not with the ones most directly involved in the hopeful but continually delayed Baker Hotel plan – it seems now that the cart is going to start pushing the horse.
There is now at least one thing for which we all – Democrats included – should give President Donald Trump profound thanks. His campaign used a mountain of “big data” from an estimated 50 million users of the social media giant Facebook to try to influence them in the 2016 election.
You see, it only looks like Trump is The Worst Negotiator God Ever Created. Instead of telling Democrats, “I won’t even talk about DACA until we have the border wall,” Trump has repeatedly given up the wall, aka The Central Promise of His Campaign, Without Which He Would Not Be in the White House.
Donald Trump promised a lot during his presidential campaign, but the one promise he made most often was to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Does anyone know why President Trump loves “Dreamers” — i.e.: illegal aliens allegedly brought here before the age of 12 (which no federal judge will ever check) by their parents (which no federal judge will ever check), “through no fault of their own” (which no federal judge will ever check)?
Trump-Russia special counsel Robert Mueller is authorized to investigate “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.”
Free speech is in trouble. Which means we’re all in trouble. Maybe not all at the same time, but the erosion of the First Amendment isn’t good for anyone.
The conventional wisdom is that last week — with a much-watched congressional special election, a shakeup in the diplomatic profile of the country, and internal White House debates about how and against whom to impose steel and aluminum tariffs — answered several vital questions. In truth, the opposite may be the case.
Thoughts on the mass shooting at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, after witnessing a couple of weeks of almost uniformly bad performance theater:
Salvation Army of Palo Pinto County would like to thank all our volunteers who selflessly contributed their time and joy in giving back to our community through their efforts during this Christmas Red Kettle season.
Now that we’ve all had a chance to read The Memo, it seems like the most obvious question from both sides of the canyon divide in U.S. politics should be: What’s the big deal?
I keep hearing that the large majority of the “American people” (the term our dear leaders use when schmoozing for our votes) just want members of Congress and the president to “work together.”
Mamaw’s House would like to thank the Perrin community for all the support in the effort to give Perrin’s Elementary school children comfort and joy this Christmas.
Never have I seen so many “progressives” have so many faux fainting spells or faux temper tantrums over a scatological term. Not even a real obscenity — just coarse language that would have seemed mild in the Clinton White House.
A month ago today, my husband had a bad accident. This is not really what this letter is about, it’s about the kinds of people who did not know me or us and their kindness to us “In the Holidays.”
Oprah for president? Really? Apparently so, since the official NBC network Twitter account posted (although later deleted) a tweet anointing her as “OUR future president” after her impassioned speech at the Golden Globes about sexual harassment.
I am in a darkened movie theatre in Washington D.C.’s Georgetown neighborhood. It’s a long way from the Ioka in Exeter, New Hampshire, where the upholstery had seen better days and the screen was little more than a mottled suggestion. Everything here is plush: fully reclining assigned seats, liquor in the lobby, a virtual First Class fantasy flight to compete with all the comforts of home and Netflix.
I write with regards to the comments on immigration our beloved president is reported to have uttered on Thursday, namely why the U.S. should take in immigrants from “****hole countries” like Haiti.
January is School Board Recognition Month in the State of Texas. Santo ISD, like other public schools across the state, says thank you to the leaders of our communities who are willing to serve the young people and taxpayers of our respective districts without compensation.
WASHINGTON – Today’s political discord is less durable and dangerous than a consensus, one that unites the political class more than ideology divides it. The consensus is that, year in and year out, in good times and bad, Americans should be given substantially more government goods and serv…
It’s a bit hard to argue, once you strip away all the partisan hyperventilating, that the Republican tax reform plan is a colossally good, or colossally bad, deal for Americans.
I’m mystified by the level of the freakout over the Federal Communications Commission’s recent vote to roll back internet regulations adopted under President Obama known as net neutrality.
The Republican majority in the Senate dropped from a marginal 52-48 seats to a dangerously thin 51-49 this week, after Democrat Doug Jones beat former judge Roy Moore in deep red Alabama.
Political sage that I am, I have a bit of obvious advice for both parties about double standards: You tend to get away with them more easily if they are at least somewhat subtle.
It’s hard to keep score in the sexual harassment/assault derby. No, not of the women who have come forward to say they have been victims of (usually) famous, powerful men who forcibly kissed, groped or even raped them.
Hopefully you were among the thousands who attended in person, or among the thousands of others who watched our video broadcast online, Saturday night’s first Merry Wells event downtown featuring the lighted Christmas parade.
A great big thanks to Commander Jim Bransom, VFW Post 2399, and AmVets Post 133 Commander Clay Roundtree for all the camaraderie and assistance for my 50th Reunion of Vietnam-era Navy VQ2 Squadron.
Statistics show that 46.5 million Americans don’t have enough food to eat. A portion of those people are our neighbors right here in Palo Pinto County.
It’s a colossal irony, but President Donald Trump, in his own ham-handed and frequently toxic way, is actually doing the nation a favor with his attacks on the media. He’s raising awareness of the rights spelled out in the First Amendment.
The latest meltdown over Obamacare – President Trump’s recent executive order to eliminate so-called “cost-sharing reduction payments” to insurance companies – is yet another illustration of how selective our allegiance is to the allegedly hallowed “rule of law.”
The owner of a successful Palo Pinto County business was in our office recently, talking with advertising rep Mary Gray about a promotional campaign for his expansion plans.
Palo Pinto County Judge David Nicklas’ open letter published Saturday was curious on a couple of levels and deserving of a response.
