A Comprehensive List of Every Trump Flip and Flop since Election Day

America has put Trump into the Oval Office. It’s now on us to hold Trump accountable, and keep abreast of what he says and does. We owe it to America and our posterity to do our part as engaged and informed citizens.

This post is an effort to do so. If Trump makes a campaign promise, then reneges on it, that’s something the people of America deserve to know.  Continue reading →

LIVE BLOG: October 19, 2016 Presidential Debate

Tonight, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will face off in the final official presidential debate of the 2016 election.

This debate could prove critical for Trump and Clinton, but even more is at stake for the entire nation. A major misstep by Clinton in this debate could dramatically erode her gains from the last few weeks, whilst a major blunder by Trump could seal Clinton’s victory in November.

I will be live-blogging my reactions to the debate on this post, starting at 9pm EST (6pm PST).

The debate itself is free to watch – a live stream provided by YouTube and NBC is embedded below for your convenience.

Never Trump, Never Clinton

Donald Trump is now the presumptive nominee of the Republican Party, after both Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out of the nomination race earlier this month. The departure of those two candidates effectively cleared the way for Trump to win the GOP nomination.

Some people have asked me whether or not I am now supporting Donald Trump, considering his status as the presumptive nominee. My answer is an emphatic NO.

That answer holds true even if withholding my vote from Trump means handing the election to Hillary Clinton. That desperate scenario isn’t what we’re facing now, though.
