The World Goes On While America Sleeps

The World Goes On While America Sleeps

    By  Victor Davis Hanson The Democratically-controlled Senate spends thousands of collective hours conducting an impeachment trial against a president who is no longer president.  The acquittal is predetermined, as in the first impeachment effort a year ago—and known to be so to the Democratic prosecutors.  The constitutionally mandated presiding judge—the chief justice of […]

The New Old Obama
