    Just when it looked like the Liberty High School softball team had run out of gas, the girls reminded everyone of the strength and grit they have—enough to win Liberty’s first ever regional championship.

        Like the president himself, most of the current members of his Cabinet are ideological hacks who don’t even believe in the functions of the agencies to which they were appointed.
        Only Donald Trump could have put such people as Betsy DeVos, Ben Carson, Rick Perry and others in positions of power. In every case, it’s the classic example of foxes guarding henhouses.

  • President Trump’s Memorial Day remarks

        We are gathered here on the sacred soil of Arlington National Cemetery to honor the lives and deeds of America’s greatest heroes: the men and women who laid down their lives for our freedom.  Today, we pay tribute to their service, we mourn alongside their families, and we strive to be worthy of their sacrifice.
