Trump attacks journalists, comedians, and judges instead of attacking this country's plethora of problems You would think that a newly elected president such as Mr. Trump would, upon entering office, present his plan, complete with specific priorities, for solving America's many pressing problems. That hasn't happened, and we won't see it happen because this is not a president who operates from a plan. He simply reacts to situations and conditions as they confront him.

How Trump could easily expand the war against ISIS to the entire Muslim world Think that the notion of Trump taking America into a war against the Muslim nations of the world is inconceivable, that this couldn't actually happen? Well it could indeed happen and faster than we think since Trump has shown that, in addition to his hatred of ISIS, which is understandable, he has some kind of deeply embedded resentment of Muslims in general.

Trump Declares War on the Media; a Monumental Mistake He Will Soon Regret You would think that a newly elected U.S. president who needs all the help he can get to achieve his objectives would think deeply about what he was going to say before he actually said it.

An Autocrat and a Party of Control-Obsessed Politicians Take Charge; What's Next for America? There have been times in this nation's history -- at the onset of the Civil War, the Great Depression of the 1930s, the assassination of President Kennedy, and the aftermath of the 911 tragedy -- when Americans were full of apprehension and possessed a great deal of fear about the direction in which this country was heading.
