In 2016, Ukraine nationalized PrivatBank, the largest commercial bank in the country, that Kolomoisky co-owned at the time. The president’s response is appropriate in a country with an operating...

      In the End, Donald Trump Could Triumph

      The Ukraine scandal gives the Democrats new hope that they could finally drive Donald Trump out of office. But the impeachment process could bring new sympathy and even votes to the U.S. president.

      Finding a Vaccine for the Impeachment Derangement Virus

      Photo credit: Wikimedia Commons.Once intelligent people are talking about actual civil war in America. This began after Trump retweeted a pastor saying impeachment would cause a “civil war-like fracture in this Nation.” Never mind that it was a retweet, and never mind that the original statement used “like” to make a comparison. The next headline...

      Empty Desks at the NSC

      Looks like President Trump finally realizes that he is working in a snake pit. When he took office on January 20, 2017, he left an enormous cadre of Obama/Hillary sycophants in place. He could have (and should have) moved them out and reassigned them to the bureaucratic equivalent of Siberia. But he did not. Take the case of Tina Kaidanow, who...
