With the release over the weekend of Attorney General Barr’s memo summarizing the Mueller investigation, Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that “Democrats and the liberal media” owed the American people an apology. Barr’s memo concluded that the Mueller investigation found there was no collus…

Apparently there’s a difference between having a political philosophy and being an elected official with the same political philosophy. As a citizen I can harbor certain ideas about economics, culture, the environment, diversity and education. As an elected official in our two-party system I…

Toiling away, the sweat beads only heightened the tension as she pressed herself to achieve something she had put in hours prepping for. Her work paid off, her commitment rewarded. She scored a victory, one that would certainly fuel additional hours as she committed herself to future success.
