When Barack Obama signed the Paris climate agreement on Earth Day in April 2016, he did so on behalf of his presidential administration, not the US as a nation.

The folly of fools will follow fiercely.

President Donald Trump has told aides he intends to pull out of the Paris climate agreement, throwing into doubt a landmark treaty that scientists have said is vital to combating global warming. According to two White House officials, the President has not yet decided on how to withdraw from the agreement — either through a…

Body acceptance devoid of sexual overtones is difficult for most people because of how most North American prople are socialized. Nudist/naturist cultures have successfully overcome this culturally learned bias, and are increasing in numbers at resorts, beaches, state parks, and in backyards. Children brought up to distinguish sexuality from sensuality show remarkable psychological balance as adults, and are much less likely to engage in pornography and commit sexual assault. And divorce is much less frequent within nudist/naturist families. Religion is one of the culprits that stigmatises body acceptance, as well as women’s rights to equality.

The day of reckoning is upon us. Let’s see how Congress behaves when he gets back from his trip this weekend.

(WASHINGTON) — When the report burst forth alleging that President Donald Trump had revealed highly classified information to Russian diplomats, the White House quickly dispatched Trump’s national security adviser to declare that the story “as reported is false.” By the next morning, however, H.R. McMaster’s pronouncement was undercut by Trump himself, making the aide the…

Butler University, a private school in Indianapolis, has responded to criticism of a “Trumpism & U.S. Democracy” course that was offered to students in order to “potentially engage” in “strategies for resistance” to President Donald Trump. “Just as I support this course, I would support a course that is complimentary of the President,” Butler provost…

How would he have written this without his speech-writers? The result may have been quite different. Obama did not need telepromters.

President Donald Trump delivered a plea for Muslims around the world to rid their communities of the “evil” of terrorism, in a landmark address in Saudi Arabia on Sunday that marked a stark departure from past, confrontational rhetoric about the Muslim world. Instead of collectively blaming Muslims for the rise of extremist groups like ISIS,…
