The Obama cult

By John Ruberry Until the latest leftist outrage---the need to eliminate Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)--the gripe about President Donald J. Trump was that he is the leader of a cult.

We Averted Our Eyes

by baldilocks I’m old enough to remember when I was called delusional by an alleged conservative for pointing this out. That happened in 2008.

Mild compared to Castro or Mao, … Continue reading We Averted Our Eyes
