Former President and avid hunter Theodore Roosevelt declared he’d like to see bison. This was not easy.

How long will Grand Old Piggies continue their false smear of a fear campaign against the #USA election they legally lost last Fall?

Hollywood loves happy endings, but even the most idealistic among us know they don't always last in real life. Sometimes, the happy ending is just the beginning of a larger story that winds down with someone, somewhere uncontrollably weeping.

A series of exaggerated battles give way to a bittersweet dramedy about the damage that can't be undone, even between people who believed in each other once but no longer can not.

He has skin in the game and a personal stake in not having to testify to such a commission under oath about his phone calls on 1/6/21 with The White House about Trump’s subsequent efforts to get their stories straight.
