The Left Begins to Understand the Threats of Expansive, All-Powerful Federal Government

On the Drudge Report this morning was a link to a report about how liberals are “stockpiling” food and guns as we get closer to the reality of a Trump administration. The story was produced by InfoWars, which is a production of conspiracy monger Alex Jones, and I don’t see a lot of facts or

Standing Rock Chairman Seems Ready to Cut a Deal With Trump on the Dakota Access Pipeline

A representative of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe is set to meet with President-elect Donald Trump today in New York City, and the tone tribal chairman David Archambault is striking ahead of the meeting is a departure from the virulently anti-oil, anti-pipeline theme of the #NoDAPL protests he helped spark: Archambault said he wants to make the
