If you turned on cable TV news Monday, chances are good that you caught Corey Lewandowski fibbing that he doesn't have a clue why Donald Trump fired him as his campaign manager. Of course he knows.
Has anyone even read the bill that had Democrats staging a sit-in on the floor of Congress? "No district court of the United States or court of appeals of the United States shall have jurisdiction to consider the lawfulness or constitutionality of this section ..." It gets worse.
Recently, League of Women Voters of Florida President Pamela Goodman submitted an article advocating a ban on “assault weapons.” In the article she suggests Florida legislators pass a bill on the first day of session. Even though I will not be in Tallahassee in the coming session, my advice for Florida legislators is not to fall prey to the pandering, anti-gun rhetoric of this partisan organization.
"I believe in an America always moving toward the future."      -- Hillary Clinton, June 21
"There's an old adage about a vat of wine standing next to a vat of sewage. Add a cup of wine to the sewage, and it is still sewage. But add a cup of sewage to the wine, and it is no longer wine but sewage. Is this what Donald Trump has done to our politics?"      -- Martha Bayles, in the Claremont Review of Books

Idiotic: That’s the only word for the Obama administration’s move to scrub references to Islam or ISIS from the transcripts of Orlando terrorist Omar Mateen’s calls.
So you think Barack Obama is Mr. Nice Guy? Don't even. On Monday the president of the United States thumbed his nose at the city of Orlando and the 49 dead and more than 50 wounded in the June 12 terrorist attack on a crowded gay nightclub.
