Chicago Mayor and Illinois Governor Refuse to Cooperate with Trump; They Have No Problem Taking His Money

It’s no secret that Chicago is proud of their sanctuary city status and their lack of cooperation with the Trump Administration. With the election of Lori Lightfoot as mayor, it became clear that Chicago will continue down the path of presidential defiance and migrant protection.

Lightfoot recently addressed the issue of illegal immigration, saying that the Chicago Police Department would not cooperate with President’s Trump’s planned ICE raids that will target over 2,000 families in 10 cities.

“Are You an American Citizen?” How a Simple Question Can Cause so Much Controversy

“Are you an American citizen?” Although this question seems simple, it is surrounded by controversy. The most recent of which comes from a Supreme Court case involving adding an additional question to the Census. This question would ask American residents if they are citizens. Despite the conservative lean of the court, they delayed the president’s action, perhaps long enough to keep it off the 2020 Census. The court claimed that the White House’s explanation for adding the question was insufficient. They felt that President’s reason was “more of a distraction” than an explanation.

Dem Debate Night 1: Selling Voters What They Don’t Want

It was derided as the kids’ table debate, and it’s safe to say Wednesday night’s opening act lived down to the hype.  Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and nine challengers in single digits took the stage in Miami for NBC’s first Democratic debate of the 2019-20 presidential campaign.  Emphasizing their similarities, few stood out positively from the field.  The first group of ten (with ten more coming Thursday night) debated health care, immigration, foreign policy, and how to run against an unpopular president when things are going well.

Has Trump Already Gotten Mexico to Pay for the Wall?

One of the President’s loftier promises during his 2016 campaign was that there was going to be a southern border wall, and that Mexico was going to pay for it. Some laughed off the idea as another crazy Trump outburst, much like when he questioned President Obama’s country of birth. Others believed that the then candidate’s words should not be taken literally, but could be used more as a loose metaphor for Mexico helping to stem the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.

Democratic Debate Bubble Watch: Who’s In and Out

Spirituality guru, self-help author, and one-time congressional candidate, Marianne Williamson, qualified for a spot in the first series of Democratic debates on Thursday. A friend of Oprah Winfrey, Williamson’s previous experience in electoral politics was in 2014, when she finished fourth in California’s jungle primary, for the congressional seat currently occupied by Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA).

Trump Campaign Update: More Talk Than Action on His Big 3 Issues

Trump has been focusing on three major issues during the last few days: immigration, tariffs, and infrastructure. Of those issues, infrastructure is the one that seems at least a bit refreshing. The last time Trump really made infrastructure a major focus was during his 2016 campaign.

During that campaign Trump compared U.S. infrastructure to that of “a third world country.” His promise to rebuild and reinvest in the country’s infrastructure was something that excited and pleased many Americans.

Not Just Trump, All Politicians Should Submit Records for Transparency

Right now, as of today, a new poll has been released showing that only 17% of United States citizens trust the government to do what’s best for the people. This comes on the heals of months of needless bickering on subjects that simply have no place in our society right now. There’s too many needs of the people that should be addressed as opposed to worrying so much about digging up dirt on someone else. And, what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.
