During an appearance on the David Plouffe’s Campaign HQ podcast, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, accused 2012 and 2016 Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein of being a Russian asset. Clinton also accused the Russians of “grooming” a current Democratic presidential candidate, presumably Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, to be a 2020 third party candidate and spoil the election in favor of President Donald Trump.

With the 2018 Mid-Term election fast approaching this Tuesday, I foresee the following to be the most likely outcome:
- A net gain of 21 seats for Democrats in the House, with Republicans retaining a slight 221-214 majority, and

Corporate media outlets like CNN, The Washington Post, and The New York Times have recently claimed President Donald Trump attacks the First Amendment when he criticizes corporate media outlets for unethical journalistic practices and labels them the “enemy of the people.” Nevertheless, Trump has taken no legal action against any member of the corporate media (unlike the previous President), and has not advocated doing so.

The level of hate aimed at President Donald Trump in the political sphere is much greater than what any of his predecessors faced. Members of Congress have endorsed public harassment of cabinet members, accused the President of capital crimes, and even suggested a military coup to remove the President from power.

Trump threatens the established order, and so, he and his followers are forced to feel the wrath.
The historic summit between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un this past month in Singapore signaled a significant shift toward peace. This stood in stark contrast to the situation in April 2017 when I wondered whether the rapidly deescalating situation would lead to violence. I proposed a path to peace. With former NBA star Dennis Rodman as perhaps the only mutual friend of Trump and Kim, the latter acquaintance made through Basketball Diplomacy, Rodman stood in a unique position to bring the two leaders together. His efforts, in one way or another, made the Singapore summit a reality. Where their predecessors failed, Trump and Kim realized the potential for peace through the portal Rodman opened.
The most popular show on television today is canceled and every trace of it removed from the record; a consequence of the show’s top star committing the unforgivable Sin. This Sin is not spousal abuse, not child molestation, not even murder. In these twisted times, the unforgivable Sin does not even require a victim. In fact, it does not even require intent.
