One distinctive characteristic of every presidency, regardless of party, is the powerful desire to control the flow of information about it. This is especially true during first terms, as the desire for a second one mounts. As you may have noticed, President Donald Trump seeks to manage the messaging from and the reporting on his White House by flooding the zone with news, usually of his own making and from his own mouth or cellphone.

Andrew Malcolm knows he’s best at communication of the Anti-Trump agenda. Will readers agree?

The only ones who would disagree are wannabe communications directors. Like Andrew? President Trump’s unfiltered messaging is one of his very best qualities among many. He is the only one who gets his story straight, without the Liberal media bias. It drives them crazy.

I knew it! You probably did too. People generally are getting dumber. Not anyone reading or writing this post, of course. But the world population in general. IQ levels inexorably rose during the last century, about three points per decade, according to established research. Now they’re not. In fact, IQ levels are actually in decline — and not just in Congress. According to a number of studies, beginning around the turn of this century, IQ test scores were found to be declining across Britain, Germany, Scandinavia, Australia and

Here’s an interesting juxtaposition of polls showing how one emotional national controversy can develop and endure bitterly for decades while another doesn’t, both thanks to the timing of landmark Supreme Court decisions. A new Gallup Poll out this week shows support for same-sex marriage has held in the 60-to-mid-60s range since the Supreme Court approved it just two years ago next month. Support for gay marriage has been trending upward since 1996 when Gallup first asked the question and found only 27 percent approval. Now, let’s look at the divisive issue of abortion. It was issued by the Supreme Court in 1973, the Roe v Wade decision.

Some inexplicable things come out of our nation’s capital. Occasionally, similar puzzlements emerge elsewhere in the nation. A current one is the developing outbreak of preventable measles that’s become so serious now that federal officials have threatened some with unusually restrictive travel bans. Some of us were unaware that such a federal Do Not Board List exists for civilians who have nothing to do with suspected terrorism. But it does. And health officials in five states have contacted the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention about banning travel by some citizens suspected of being in the 21-day incubation period for

It was supposed to be part of the relaunch of Beto O’Rourke’s fading Democratic primary campaign to recapture the empty charisma he showed while live-streaming his dental cleaning. The hour-long town hall on CNN was more of a re-fizzle. The abysmal overnight audience ratings proved the ancient show biz adage about customers: If they don’t want to come, you can’t stop ’em. Nielsen’s study of the total audience showed that viewers were less than excited about watching the bland ex-congressman from El Paso smile and dance around questions. The town hall’s total audience was 30 percent smaller than a normal Tuesday evening audience. That’s enough to give the show

Another front is opening these days in the eternal battle of the sexes. Only this one in the workplace is not about equal pay or equal job opportunities. It’s about the thermostat. A new study reveals what a lot of couples already knew: Women like their living spaces a lot warmer than men do. In fact, women’s brains work significantly better in warmer work temperatures. Men prefer cooler room temperatures. Perhaps because they rarely wear sleeveless dresses and shirts or skirts on the job. The issue is likely to be an

A new national poll of Democrats and Democrat-leaning independents confirms Joe Biden maintains a comfortable 19-point lead over Bernie Sanders and the rest of the polyglot posse seeking the party’s presidential nomination next year. But even more interesting at this early stage is that the new Hill-HarrisX Poll out Wednesday also confirms several other recent surveys that found Democrats are much more interested in ousting President Donald Trump than finding a candidate that matches their ideological leaning. If this continues, it’s good news

How is it possible to have an American flag that’s too large, you might ask? Especially on a national holiday honoring the too many who’ve given their lives for it. Well, the town elders of Statesville, N.C. have informed the owner of the local Camping World outlet that its 40 x 80 foot American flag is too large. [Snip] The town is suing Camping World Gander Outdoors, a NASCAR sponsor, seeking a fine of $50 a day. Camping World’s owner suggests the town leaders find a flagpole and sit on it. The owner is Marcus Lemonis, a billionaire businessman and host of CNBC’s most popular reality TV show “The Profit.”

Well, it’s official. Washington’s governor has signed that freaky human composting funeral legislation that allows residents to recycle loved ones like Seattle requires food waste be composted. This makes that zany, wet state the very first and quite possibly the very last to allow composting of human bodies instead of standard burial or cremation. [Snip] According to the provisions, licensed facilities are now authorized to accept your loved one’s bodily remains for “natural organic reduction.” After several weeks, two wheelbarrow loads of organic mulch are returned to the family. “Where

By the holidays this year the historically ginormous field of 23 Democrat wannabe presidents will likely be cut at least in half. The debates that start next month in Miami will expose several for the shallow creeks they are. Among those likely to get clipped is Robert Francis O’Rourke, who calls himself Beto because Robert Francis is insufficiently down home. It happens every presidential primary campaign, which

There are few things that a Democratic state legislature can’t write a new law about. Now, the New York Senate is working on a new statute to ban texting while walking. Unfortunately, New York is not the first United States locality seeking to subvert Darwin’s survival of the fittest law. As in Hawaii and some municipalities in, of course, California, it would impose fines between $25 and $250 on people for texting, browsing online, emailing or playing games on their cellphone while in a crosswalk

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told graduates at Hunter College in New York City on Wednesday that when she thinks about the future, she wonders what to do “when people in positions of authority are not held accountable, when they defy requests from the Congress, when they spread misinformation online.” Her remarks appear to be a dig at President Donald Trump. (Video) Clinton spoke after Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued his statement on his report detailing the findings on the Russia investigation.

With his work done and his office closing, Robert Mueller could have quietly slipped back into private life. Instead, he gave himself a ­blowout retirement party — and leaves America to suffer the nasty consequences. On his way out the door, Mueller pointed at President Trump and told Democrats to get him. In a flash, the next 18 months were ­spoken for. If you doubt it, look at the way Dems reacted. Or rather, the way they erupted.

Hillary Clinton and her daughter Chelsea Clinton are reportedly forming a Hollywood production company. The two have spoken to studios about financing, Bloomberg reported Thursday. The Clintons plan to build a pipeline of film and television programs that focus on stories about women or are created by women. The yet-to-be-named company is one of a number of business opportunities Hillary Clinton is considering. Last year, the 71-year-old former Democratic presidential contender signed on to assist producing a show about the activists who helped get women the right to vote called “The Woman’s Hour.” The show is being adapted from a 2018 book by Elaine Weiss.

“We face a real situation where Roe could be overturned. And we know what will happen, which is that women will die. Thousands of women died every year pre-Roe.” — Leana Wen, president of Planned Parenthood, in an interview with WFAA of Dallas, March 6, 2019 “Before Roe v. Wade, thousands of women died every year — and because of extreme attacks on safe, legal abortion care, this could happen again right here in America.” — Wen, in a tweet, April 24, 2019 “We’re not going to go back in time to a time before Roe when thousands of women died every year because they didn’t have access to essential health care.”

Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) on Thursday vetoed a bill which would have pledged the state’s six electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote for President of the United States. Assembly Bill 186, which recently passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would have seen Nevada join with 14 other states in an agreement to vote for the winner of the popular vote. The Assembly had voted in favor of the measure 23-17. “Once effective, the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact could diminish the role of smaller states like Nevada in national electoral contests and force Nevada’s electors to side with whoever wins the nationwide popular vote,

A bill passed on Wednesday by the Illinois House would require gun owners to be fingerprinted and pay more for identification cards. The state Senate still must approve the bill before it could be signed into law. Democratic Rep. Kathleen Willis of Addison, citing deficiencies in the state's current Firearm Owner's Identification system, said the bill comes in response to a shooting at a factory in Aurora where six people, including the gunman, were killed, according to The Associated Press.

President Donald Trump gave a speech to the graduates of the Naval Academy Friday morning. Then, the president went a step further, offering to shake the hands of every single graduate — more than 1,000 midshipmen. “I was given an option. I could make this commencement address, which is a great honor for me, and immediately leave and wave goodbye. Or I could stay and shake hands with just the top 100,” Trump said, “Or I could stay for hours and shake hands with 1,100 and something. What should I do? What should I do?” Trump then shouted, “Stay! Ok, I’ll stay.”

A crush of climbers waiting to ascend the world's tallest summit can be seen in a new video amid the ongoing debate whether Nepal should limit permits to prevent dangerous overcrowding on the world's highest peak. Eleven people have died so far this year on Mount Everest -- including nine in Nepal -- likely due to altitude sickness, which is caused by low amounts of oxygen at high elevation and can lead to headaches, vomiting, shortness of breath and mental confusion. Nepal has issued permits to 381 people to climb Everest, which the government says is the greatest number ever.
