GUEST COLUMN, Larry Phillips, Kismet   The Leftist progressives who control the major media and Democrat leaders are really starting to sweat. And they should. After the New York Times and the Washington Post wrote stories last week about an FBI paid informant in the Trump campaign,...

GUEST COLUMN, Jim Burgess, Columbus, Ohio   Primary season is already in full swing for November’s midterm elections, reminding us there is a lot at stake this year. Consider the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, for example.  House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said her first priority,...
