“Mission Accomplished” in Syria - Not so Fast

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Last Friday, April 13th, 2018, President Donald Trump ordered strikes on military targets across Syria in response to the gas attacks in the Syrian city of Douma. Even though the strikes were considered a success, Mr. Trump seemed to make a verbal slip of the tongue of epic proportions when he said, “Mission accomplished.”

Weiss: House Fails to Pass GOP’s Balanced Budget Amendment

Monday, April 16, 2018

Following the recent passage of the $ 1.3 trillion omnibus government spending bill and the massive GOP tax cut bill that added more than a $1 trillion to the nation’s despite economic growth, and with midterm elections looming, the House GOP leadership quickly acted to tackle the spiraling nation’s deficit by bringing H.J. Res. 2, a balanced budget amendment (BBA), to the floor for a vote.  Simply put, the amendment requires that total annual outlays not exceed total annual receipts.  It also requires a true majority of each chamber to pass tax increases and a three-fifths majority to raise the debt limit.

Mark Curtis

A “Big Price to Pay” for Syria

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

The Syrian regime led by President Bashar al-Assad has – yet again -- used chemical weapons on its own people. This comes at a time when President Donald Trump is considering a withdrawal of U.S. forces from Syria. Sadly, keeping the situation in perspective, two Coalition members – U.S. Master Sgt. Jonathan J. Dunbar and UK soldier Sgt. Matt Tonroe – were killed in Syria last month. In response to the latest gas attacks, on Twitter, Mr. Trump promised there would be a “big price to pay” as a result.

Seattle Mariners – Marco Gonzales And The Roller Coaster Of Emotion

Tuesday, April 10, 2018

Marco Gonzales made his way up to the St. Louis Cardinals minor league system with accolades aplenty, but his time pitching at the major league level has not been as admirable. After a major league career that has teeter-tottered between poor and decent, Gonzales is still trying to cement himself as a reliable starting pitcher since his first start in 2014.

The Race to the Primary Finish Line - Sunday Political Brunch April 8, 2018

Sunday, April 08, 2018

I’ve had a fascinating week as a political reporter. I began in Broward County, Florida – sadly, home of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shootings. And. I ended the week covering President Trump on tax reform in West Virginia. The diversity of political thought in this nation is a strength – not a weakness – from my experience as a reporter. Let’s “brunch” on that this week.

Why The Draft Is The Seattle Seahawks’ Oyster

Sunday, April 08, 2018

This year heading into the 2018 NFL Draft the Seattle Seahawks have a lot of holes to fill. There is much to be optimistic about for fans though. They have franchise players at several key positions with Russell Wilson, Doug Baldwin, Bobby Wagner, K.J. Wright and Earl Thomas. They make up a foundation that few teams in the NFL can match talent-wise, so with the draft later this month the Seahawks can go a lot of ways with their picks.

WHL 2nd Round Playoff Preview – Local Arena To Close In August 0

Sunday, April 08, 2018

The Western Hockey League playoffs have run through the first round with a couple small surprises and now that group of sixteen has been dropped to just eight with ten days to play a possible seven-game series. The stakes are higher now as the winners will move onto the Conference finals and eventually the WHL Final for which one team will earn a coveted spot in the Memorial Cup Tournament. It’s a tough haul where a team is lucky to repeat as Conference Champion let alone WHL Champion.
