Presidential Election Revelation

Brett Kavanaugh

Confirming a United States Supreme Court Justice is a big deal. But the process can be convoluted. We just experienced how divided… political… partisan… biased it can be. So we now have our newest Justice… Brett Kavanau...

The 91st Academy Awards

Every year, the Oscars have something to live down. This year is no exception. So this year’s drama is over the host… or lack thereof. The word is that the show’s producers reached out to several people but couldn’t mak...
