The Great Wall of Harvard

President Trump’s vow to change a “rigged system” helped propel him to victory over stodgy supporters of “liberal” and “conservative” non-alternatives.

President Trump last week met with California public officials who oppose the state’s sanctuary law which, as the president said, “provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women and children at the mercy of sadistic criminals.” California Governor Jerry

Kanye’s Epiphany

Rudyard K. might have tweeted, if Rudyard could tweet, “Trump is Trump; West is West, and they never will meet.” Yet they met, and it seems an affinity grows… What did they have in common? Reality shows! No, no, not the shows they each had on TV; (Those had little resemblance, to reality)—
