No longer.
Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, Heitman, who is 42 and white, has become a reliable Democrat. Last week, he voted for the Democratic candidate in a special state Senate election in Pittsburgh’s affluent southern suburbs.
“A decade ago I probably wouldn’t have even noticed this election...

Trump Signs Executive Order to Increase Efforts to Prevent Veteran Suicide

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Tuesday amping up efforts to prevent veteran suicide.
Veterans are 1.5 times more likely than non-veterans to take their lives, according to the Department of Veterans Affairs, and 20 die by suicide on average each day.
The order creates a Cabinet-level task force led by VA Secretary Robert Wilkie that will coordinate and align efforts across the federal government to help stem the crisis among former service members.
The panel will be tasked with creating a national plan to more effectively lower the numbers of veteran suicides after numerous programs and billions of dollars allocated to address the problem in recent years have had minimal impact.
“Veteran suicide is a tragedy of staggering proportions,” Trump said at a signing ceremony...

Students at a New Jersey school had worked on it for years. Now, all they needed was President Donald Trump’s signature. But if he didn’t act in time, the bill would die.

Piers Morgan Says Jussie Smollett Lynched the Truth, Betrayed Every Black and Homosexual Person in America, and Proved Trump Derangement Syndrome Is a Very Real and Dangerous Disease

‘I AM telling the truth!’ Jussie Smollett once tweeted, with the hashtag #TheMostCommonLies.
Oh the irony.
Today, Smollett is revealed to be the most hideous, reprehensible, disgusting, snivelling little liar in America.
How else to adequately describe a prominent black, gay celebrity actor who police say staged a racist, homophobic attack on HIMSELF?
A man who would pay two friends to pretend to jump him in the street at 2am in Chicago, scream ugly insults about his skin colour and sexuality, put a noose around his neck, and pour bleach on him?
A man who would claim his ‘attackers’ were red-capped supporters of President Trump, and shouted ‘This MAGA country’, referring to Trump’s campaign slogan ‘Making America Great Again?’
A man who would then go on national televisio...
