There are a lot of people right now questioning whether Donald Trump can even make it through his first term. Among those people is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. But there’s just one problem. Americans still prefer a political outsider to a political insider like Mitch McConnell, who is currently polling at 18%. Kid Rock even stands a decent chance of becoming Michigan’s next US Senator. Sam explains why the smart money is still on Trump’s message.
Trump is refocusing the efforts of our war fighters away from nation building and toward actual war fighting. At the center of this change is a massive struggle for power between the United States, Russia, and key players in the Middle East.
Steve Bannon is out as Trump’s chief strategist and already back at Breitbart. What is Trump’s message now that Bannon is gone?
The mainstream media (both CNN and MSNBC) haven’t been able to resist linking the Barcelona attack to Charlottesville. No, Wolf Blitzer, Barcelona was not a copycat of Charlottesville. But there is a comparison to be made. And that’s the willingness of the media to paint Trump supporters with the broad brush of racism. Yet they become suddenly shy whenever radical Islam is at the root of a violent act.
You’ve seen it on the news and all over your social media, there is no moral equivalency between Nazis and counter-protesters. Lost in the proud virtue-signaling is any discussion of how the law does and should treat free speech. Sam gives you what the national conversation on Charlottesville has been missing.
No matter the picture the mainstream media paints, political violence is not one-sided. But Left Wing violence gets a pass, mostly because it can’t be used to paint Trump as a bad guy. Sam explains the roots of the violence and the limits of speech.
There is no law against hate speech in the United States. And that’s a good thing. Yes, speech can be nasty or evil. But until that speech becomes violence, people should have the freedom to exercise it.
James Damore wrote the Google Memo to start a conversation within his company. He vastly underestimated how loud and far reaching that conversation would be. Why don’t we just mandate equality of outcomes regarding the sexes? Because as anyone with common sense (read: not on the Left) will tell you, it’s not quite that easy. Sam explains what some of those complications are and what we should do to foster greater equality without becoming insane.
The Mainstream Media has freaked out all week long about Donald Trump’s posturing toward North Korea. Sam explains how after decades of kicking the can down the road, we finally have someone in the White House willing to deal with the problem.
Does anyone think what we’ve been doing in North Korea has worked? Obama’s “Strategic Patience” was nothing more than appeasement rebranded. Maybe a change of tactics is needed as North Korea gets more dangerous by the day.
